Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who rightfully won the Democratic nomination for president in 2016 but was passed over at the Democratic National Convention for the pre-ordained Hillary R. Clinton, is tossing his hat in the ring for the party’s 2020 nomination.
“I’m running for president. I am asking you to join me today as part of an unprecedented and historic grassroots campaign that will begin with at least 1 million people from across the country,” Sanders said on Twitter, linking to a video.

“Real change never takes place from the top on down, but always from the bottom on up,” he said in the video.
The video touts “free” college tuition, Medicare For All (“free” healthcare for everyone) and, of course, worships the political left’s Church of Climate Change.
“Our economy is rigged,” he said later. “We have a campaign finance system which is corrupt. Brothers and sisters, we have a lot of work in front of us. If we are prepared to stand together, there is no end to what the great people of our nation can accomplish.”
The candidate – who will run on a socialist platform – has never held a private sector job in his life.
However, he faces an ever-growing field on Democratic Party challengers.
Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand have already declared candidacy, garnering significant press. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, former San Antonio mayor and Obama administration employee Julian Castro, and Pete Buttigieg, Mayor of South Bend Indiana, are also in the running.
Rumors have emerged that former Vice President Joe Biden is considering a run, and former Texas State Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who has been slinking around since his U.S. Senate loss to Ted Cruz, is still a potential candidate.
Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has also been making noise about an independent run the presidency.

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.
