Bernie Sanders Rejects Call for Open Borders, Savaged by Left

Sanders surprised some by rejecting a platform of open borders.

Published

Bernie Sanders made himself an unlikely target for criticism among his detractors in the Democrat Party on Sunday, after rejecting an assertion from a questioner that he supported open borders.

A man asked how Bernie intended to sustain his vision of enlarged governmental social programs while supporting open borders. The Vermont Senator and Presidential candidate clarified that he did not support open borders, going into brief detail as to why he did not. Watch here:

My point is that if you open the borders, you’re going to have people from all over the world. That is not my position.

As milquetoast and basic as Sanders’ argument against a policy of open borders was, it became a target for derision among some on the progressive left unwilling to accept anything less. Some expressed indignation that Sanders would so much as even take a stance on the subject, stating that any conversation about the notion of open borders- a commonly suggested policy proposal in corporate media- was nothing more than cleverly disguised Republican propaganda.

The Koch brothers-funded corporate libertarian outlet Reason Foundation also published a piece criticizing Sanders for taking the most elementary stance possible in support of American workers by rejecting open migration to the United States. Increasingly centrists and liberals on both the left and “right” find themselves in league with one another in support of radical globalist policies that would import millions of new low-wage workers and voters into American society. If such an open borders vision were to be executed, it’s likely the American middle and working class would be crushed by an onslaught of cheap-labor competition, eventually resulting in the creation of a new Brazilian or Russian-style class system in the United States in which a small contingent of wealthy oligarchs have complete leverage over the vast impoverished masses.

Sanders still advocates for a massive amnesty of up to twelve million illegal immigrants and the drastic neutering of immigration law enforcement agencies such as ICE in the United States. However, one can’t help but notice the irony that his immigration policy views are probably well on the right of what’s commonly proposed by Democratic Party presidential candidates and legislators. Julian Castro, another Democratic Presidential candidate, potentially represents the left wing of Democratic Party opinion migration. Castro has called for the full decriminalization of illegal migration, potentially opening the southern border up to unprecedented waves of crossings that could make the caravans appear no greater than small formations in comparison.

Presidential Debate Commission Considers Major Rule Changes, Which May Include Muting Trump’s Microphone

They are desperate to protect Joe Biden.

Published

President Donald Trump smacked down former vice president Joe Biden so brutally in last night’s presidential debate that the commission is considering changing the rules to give Biden a leg up in future debates.

The Commission on Presidential Debates made the announcement on Wednesday that they are going to be changing the rules of the game to hurt President Trump, which may even include the ability to mute Trump’s microphone.

They issued a statement saying that the debate “made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.”

President Trump, who was frequently double-teamed by Biden and biased globalist moderator Chris Wallace, was forced to fight two men during the debate, but this wasn’t enough to give Biden the advantage. This is why they are considering changing the rules in the middle of the game.

Of course, the Commission on Presidential Debates praised Wallace for attacking Trump and propping up Biden throughout the debate.

“The CPD will be carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly,” the organization said. “The Commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates.”

They have assured CBS News that “we are going to be making changes” before the next debate. This is clearly designed to hurt Trump and bias the proceedings even further against the president.

Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump campaign, is calling out the commission for their partisan and reprehensible behavior.

“They’re only doing this because their guy got pummeled last night,” he said in a statement. “President Trump was the dominant force and now Joe Biden is trying to work the refs. They shouldn’t be moving the goalposts and changing the rules in the middle of the game.”

Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager for Biden’s campaign, is counting on the rules being changed to help Biden.

“He’ll be focused on answering questions from the voters there, under whatever set of rules the Commission develops to try to contain Donald Trump’s behavior,” Bedingfield said in a statement. “The president will have to choose between responding to voters about questions for which he has offered no answers in this campaign — or repeating last night’s unhinged meltdown.”

Big League Politics reported on how Wallace constantly interrupted President Trump and served as a surrogate for Biden while he was supposed to be the non-biased moderator:

The Donald Trump campaign has indicated that ‘neutral’ moderator Chris Wallace interrupted President Trump a whopping 76 times during Tuesday’s debate. Wallace, who is known for harboring liberal sympathies, was widely criticized by conservatives for his partiality in moderating the contest…

It appears that Biden actually spent more time talking during the debate than Trump did, despite Wallace consistently maintaining that Trump was breaking the rules.

Wallace continually invoked the rules that allot two minutes for each answer to each candidate, but declined to interrupt Biden when he violated them. He flouted neutrality most during the ‘open discussion’ segments, waiting for a moment when Biden appeared flustered or challenged by the President to change the subject.

Wallace conveniently changed the subject when Trump pressed Biden to identify any law enforcement union that endorsed him…

Wallace also provided the same convenient handicap when Biden described the terrorist group ANTIFA as an ‘idea.’…

Biden assailed Trump with a hail of personally charged insults, calling him a ‘clown,’ a ‘racist,’ a ‘fool,’ and a ‘puppy.’ Wallace did not object to any of the character attacks utilized by Biden…

At this point, if Biden refuses to a contest with a moderator unaffiliated with a mainstream corporate media outlet, just do the debates without a moderator. Have the two candidates speak in an open-ended fashion without the use of a convenient handicap to cut off any content that might prove harmful to the Democrat’s electoral prospects.

The electoral integrity for November’s vote is already severely jeopardized. President Trump might want to consider suspending the elections in order to protect the Republic from the anti-democratic coup that is in progress.
