Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has billed himself a crusader for equality throughout his years as a career politician in Washington D.C., reportedly told Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) that a woman cannot win the presidency behind the scenes.
Sanders and Warren, two socialists who have been long-time colleagues, met in December 2018 at Warren’s apartment to discuss their presidential ambitions. They allegedly agreed to be amicable throughout their upcoming presidential runs, refusing to engage in dirty politics against one another. They have largely lived up to their pact, but that may be changing in the crucial days to come.
Warren told Sanders that she would be the best candidate to take on President Trump due to her strength in appealing to female voters and her credibility pertaining to economic matters. This is when Sanders reportedly replied that he believes a female candidate does not have what it takes to defeat President Trump in 2020.
Sanders categorically denies the allegations, which he claims were based on second-hand sources that were not in the room while he was engaging in the conversation with Warren over a year ago.
“It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn’t win,” Sanders said.
“It’s sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren’t in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could. Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016,” he added.
However, Warren released an official statement claiming that Sanders did in fact make the sexist comment during their private meeting.
“Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed,” Warren said in the statement.
Sanders’ alleged assertion may be bearing out if polling is any indicator. With the Iowa caucuses only weeks away, Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden are surging while Warren lags behind in fourth place. She cannot even get ahead of South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who was a relative unknown before making the decision to run for president.

Despite her lack of momentum, Warren is not giving up on her ambitions for the presidency. She is continuing to push identity politics as much as she possibly can, as it is her calling card going back many decades to when she infamously faked being an Indian to advance in politics and academia.
Warren said last month during an appearance in Las Vegas, NV that she has “lived enough of my life with men, and it’s mostly been men, telling me to sit down and be quiet.”
“Over and over, we are told that women are not allowed to be angry. It makes us unattractive to powerful men who want us to be quiet,” Warren wrote in a campaign email last year that had the subject line: “I am angry and I own it.”
But based on her recent performance in the polls, the U.S. voting public, including the extremist Democrats, do not want a shrill woman to lead the country in the Oval Office. Sanders may have been correct with his alleged statement that a woman cannot defeat President Trump. The Democrat Party is showing itself to be the party of old white men when the rubber meets the road!
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.
