House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) appeared to faint at an event with New York City Mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Bill de Blasio Friday.

“The mayor is speaking – and then there’s a sudden commotion,” NBC4 said. “De Blasio and others move to help an extremely pale Nadler as he sits, a ghost-like look on his face, in the chairs at P.S. 199 on the Upper West Side.”

The event was about the installation of speed cameras in the city.

Video of the event shows de Blasio attempting to give an unresponsive Nadler some water, telling him that he looked a bit dehydrated. Nadler was eventually wheeled out of the auditorium on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital. According to a spokesperson, he is fine.

“He is okay. Seems to have been dehydrated and it was very warm in the room. He is now responsive and receiving a check-up,” the spokesperson reportedly said.

Nadler has led the House Democrats’ efforts to re-litigate Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into alleged “Russian collusion” by President Donald J. Trump’s campaign. Mueller’s report came up empty, dissatisfying Democrats who have decided to retaliate by subpoenaing many in Trump’s orbit. Attorney General William P. Barr has decided not to comply with the House’s subpoena’s and is pressing forward with his own investigation into the origins of the Trump/Russia probe.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
