Left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald was a prominent skeptic of the Russia-gate narrative used to facilitate the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and he is similarly skeptical of its sequel regarding Ukraine.
Greenwald bemoaned the “weird retrograde Cold War obsession” that has developed among the Democrats in the age of Trump. He believes that “no one cares about” the supposed Ukraine scandal with actual problems facing Americans like “stagnating wages,” lack of access to health care, and student debt continuing to skyrocket.
“Basically, what has the past four years of Trump’s presidency been dominated by? Russian and Ukraine — like do you think people in the key swing states wake up in the morning and give the slightest thought to like, what Putin is doing?” Greenwald said to journalist Justin Caruso in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller.
“Or whether the U.S. is like, sufficiently arming Ukraine, or who knows who the ambassador of Ukraine is or who gives a f*ck if Trump wanted to fire him?” he added. “Or like, Lev Parnas, or whatever that guy’s name is who gave that interview to Rachel Maddow, that everyone can’t stop talking about now?”
Greenwald is dismayed that Democrats are obsessed about these issues while largely ignoring the things that actually matter to ordinary Americans.
“What do the Democrats stand for… some kind of weird retrograde Cold War obsession that no one cares about?” Greenwald asked.
Greenwald also said he now feels “equally at home” with “what’s called conservative media” as the liberal media, adding that he does not “think one is better than the other.”
He has been seen more on Tucker Carlson’s eponymous prime-time show on Fox News than any other major program in recent months:
Greenwald thinks the only hope for the Democrats in this year’s presidential election is Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has largely kept to his socialist message even amidst the impeachment hoopla.
“I don’t think any other Democrat has anything to say about [the issues] except Bernie Sanders, who Trump, I don’t know if you heard about that newly released recording that said he was the only one he feared when it came to Hillary’s vice president because he has credibility to condemn trade and neoliberalism, and all the other stuff that has destroyed jobs in the Midwest,” he said.
“I think the Democrats best chance by far is nominating Bernie because he does talk to regular people’s concerns. I don’t think any of the other Democratic candidates do,” Greenwald added.
Unfortunately for Greenwald, the Democratic Party establishment will pull out all the stops to keep Sanders from winning the nomination, just like they did in 2016. The fractured party that will result bodes very well for President Trump’s re-election chances.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
