Establishment Democrats are panicking as Vermont socialist Senator Bernie Sanders opens up a considerable lead in early primary and caucus states, such as Iowa.
A New York Times poll taken earlier this week for the first-to-vote Iowa caucus revealed Sanders has opened up his strongest lead thus far in the campaign in the state, leading neoliberal centrist Pete Buttigieg by a solid seven percentage points. Sanders took first place in the poll with 25%, with Buttigieg behind in second with 18%.
Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren came in third and fourth respectively with 17% and 15%.
The strong poll is the latest development fueling a general feeling of consternation among establishment Democrats who oppose Sanders’ candidacy.
Fake “conservatives” who have taken their place in the Democratic Party in the Trump era are also voicing their displeasure with the possibility of their new party nominating Sanders, presenting a presidential election in which traditional liberal centrist politicians are not nominated by either major American political party.
A national party could end up nominating an old crank who isn't even a member of their own party, who fires up brainless populists, and is surrounded by a cult of personality.
What could go wrong, I ask you

President Obama himself has been rumored to be nervous about the prospects of Sanders’ candidacy, and reports have surfaced indicating that the Democratic Party kingpin would be willing to make a statement with the intention of kneecapping Sanders.
Although many conventional conservatives appear to dismiss Sanders’ prospects in a general election, President Trump himself is more prescient of the aged socialists’ populist appeal. The President has spoken of Sanders’ resonance on national trade policy, an issue both men have championed with great appeal to American workers.
However, the President believes that the Democratic establishment will likely take measures to rig the primary against Sanders, as it did in 2016. Considering the DNC’s track record of corruption, it’s far from a distant possibility.
A Trump vs. Sanders general election would likely be determined by whichever candidate can effectively channel the populist energies that fuel their respective political bases. Both candidates have strong trade track records. Sanders has the potential to appeal to working class voters on issues of income inequality usually dismissed by Republicans, but he’s also completely powerless to criticize globalist mass immigration policies that have fueled a cheap labor workforce for the corporate elite.
A general election between the two populists would be unlike anything in recent American political history, and judging from Sanders’ hot polling, it very well could be in the cards.
DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County
Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.
Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:
“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”
The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.
“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”
Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
BREAKING: A judge ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million ballots from Arizona’s most populous county so it can audit results of the 2020 election.
