Establishment Democrats Panic as Bernie Sanders Opens Up Sizable Iowa Lead

Sanders is polling strongly in early primary and caucus states.

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.

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.

Pete Buttigieg Called Out By His Own Brother-in-Law on Tucker: “Anti-God”

Rhyan Glezman isn’t going easy on his brother’s husband.

Published

Pete Buttigieg’s own brother-in-law, Pastor Rhyan Glezman, slammed the Democrat’s presidential campaign during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Wednesday.

Glezman, the brother of Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten Buttigieg(It’s probably safe to say Glezman doesn’t agree with Buttigieg’s lifestyle), takes offense at Mayor Pete’s use of Christian language and invocation of biblical teachings in his campaign.

Glezman slammed Buttigieg’s support of unrestricted abortion. Watch the segment here:

I’m just in a state of lament when you hear that we have someone running for commander in chief who can’t make a moral decision on whether to keep a child after it’s already been born or to have it killed. What kind of moral suggestions is he going to be given if he can’t come to an understanding of that? It’s just, it’s alarming.”

Buttigieg has made frequent Christianity-based attacks on conservatives throughout his campaign.

Pastor Glezman wasn’t willing to give even the slightest free pass to his moralizing brother-in-law, flat out calling out Buttigieg as an anti-Christian candidate in his conversation with Tucker.

Just everything that Pete is pushing is, it’s anti-God. I’m just going to be honest with you. Nothing lines up with Scripture for him to make cases like to say that you cannot be a Christian and vote for Trump. He’s the one that is openly contradicting God’s word over and over.”

After a strong performance in the Iowa Caucuses, the elite Democrat has somewhat fallen off the map, the wind in his sails stolen by megabillionaire centrist Michael Bloomberg.
