Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is back on the campaign trail following his recent heart attack, but he has admitted that he will be forced to slow down substantially due to his health concerns.
“I think we’re going to change the nature of the campaign a bit,” Sanders told reporters gathered outside his Burlington home following his visit to a cardiologist. “I’ll make sure I have the strength to do what I have to do.”
The 78-year-old radical socialist also admits that the heart attack might not help his chances to be the Democratic Party nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.
“Look, everything that happens every day weighs on how people feel about you,” he added. “You look at the totality of who a candidate is. You look at what that candidate stands for, the integrity of that candidate, the history of that candidate. I have been fighting for working families for my entire adult life.”
Sanders admits that he made serious mistakes in misjudging his stamina and his ability to campaign at his age.
“I must confess, I was dumb. I was born and thank God, I have a lot of energy. And during this campaign, I’ve been doing in some cases three or four rallies a day, going all over the state, Iowa, New Hampshire, wherever. And yet I in the last month or two, just more fatigued than I usually have been,” Sanders said.
After Sanders had his heart attack on Oct. 1, the media initially covered for him until the campaign was forced to admit the obvious:
The doctors who operated on the heart of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) earlier this week have confirmed that the Democrat presidential contender did in fact suffer a heart attack, despite widespread reports to the contrary.
In their official statement, the doctors noted that Sanders suffered from a “myocardial infarction,” which is the technical term for heart attack.
“The Senator was stable upon arrival and taken immediately to the cardiac catheterization laboratory, at which time two stents were placed in a blocked coronary artery in a timely fashion,” the doctors’ statement read. “All other arteries were normal.” …
Before the announcement was made, the fake news would not admit that Sanders suffered from a heart attack. They mentioned that he had an artery blockage, and the need to put stents inside of his blocked artery, but stopped short at admitting the obvious.
The campaign tried to minimize what happened at first as well.
“During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort,” the campaign’s senior adviser Jeff Weaver said in the initial announcement.
“Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted. Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days. We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates,” he added.
Even with former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign cratering with his illicit Ukrainian quid pro quo in the spotlight, Sanders will not likely be able to capitalize because of his waning health.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
