Coming off a big win in Nevada, Sen. Bernie Sanders is making headlines for a different reason. The Vermont Senator took a shot at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) by announcing that he would not be attending the pro-Israel orginaztion’s annual conference.
Sanders tweeted that he was boycotting the event due to his displeasure with current Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu and his policies.
“The Israeli people have the right to live in peace and security. So do the Palestinian people. I remain concerned about the platform AIPAC provides for leaders who express bigotry and oppose basic Palestinian rights. For that reason I will not attend their conference.”
Tony Katz speaks to Rabbi Ben Sendrow about Sanders’ criticism of AIPAC.
“Sen. Sanders has done nothing except expose how ignorant he is about AIPAC… He’s never attended or spoken at the conference. The organization stands for a strong Israel- USA relationship and that its beneficial for both countries. This is the most bi-partisan conference in America. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the Vice President all attend. It’s the most diverse group of 18,000 people I’ve ever been a part of.”
-Rabbi Ben Sendrow
Sanders, who is Jewish, has endorsements from Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib. Both of whom have made anti-Israel remarks in the past.
Tony Katz joined Leland Vittert on Fox News to talk about the rise of Bernie Sanders. For months, Sanders has consistently built support and has now won the popular vote in the first 3 presidential primaries. Only now have the rest of the Democrat Party stared to notice and have begun to panic. The Democrat establishment is terrified of seeing Bernie Sanders as the nominee, but as Tony tells Leland, this is the path they led themselves down.
“You watch the Democrats up in arms saying that ‘we can’t have a socialist candidate. We can’t allow this to happen to the Democrat party.’ He is the Democrat party. Everything he believes is now Democrat party mantra. He set the stage in 2016.”
A recent report from the Director of National Intelligence stated that Russia and Vladimir Putin intend to meddle in the 2020 presidential election. Democrats can complain all they want, but Tony Katz says that until they are serious about stopping Putin, then it’s just meaningless words
BRUTALITY! Mike Bloomberg made the catastrophic mistake of participating in the debate. Just as Tony Katz predicted, he was punched square in the mouth. Now Bloomberg is on the ropes as the other candidates took their turn to take a shot. Where does he go from here?
Sparks were flying last night on the stage of the latest Democratic Presidential Debate. South Bend Mayor, Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar have positioned themselves as the moderate candidates. They were both determined to leave the stage as the clear favorite among that bunch. There were quite a few testy moments as the candidates traded barbs. Tony Katz joined Fox and Friends to break it all down
Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg thinks farming is easy. Just put a seed in the ground and water it, he says.
Anyone who knows a farmer or has met a farmer or has been on a farm of has seen a farm knows that it’s far from easy.
The late Paul Harvey brilliantly described the work of the farmer in his piece, “So God Made A Farmer.” Respecting his take on farmers, but adding our own twist, this parody explains the difference between America’s hard working farmers and Mike Bloomberg’s elitist attitude. He could never do for an hour what farmers do everyday.
He should have far more respect, and far less insults.
Touted as a possible Vice President, Stacey Abrams appeared on the View to explain why the electoral college is racist and classist. Tony Katz takes a dive through history explains exactly why Abrams is completely incorrect.
In a newly released audio clip, Presidential candidate, Mike Bloomberg is telling an audience that farming is an easy job that anyone can do. The depths to which this statement is incorrect cannot be stated in one segment, but Tony Katz gives it his best shot
Air Force One flew low, just 800 ft above the massive crowd gearing up to watch the 62nd running of the Daytona 500. President Donald Trump, with the First Lady, Melania Trump, took to the microphone and addressed the crowd: talking about the love of NASCAR, and the more important love of country. The tens of thousands in attendance cheered. He joked with FOX Sports about jumping in a car and racing a few laps. And after uttering the classic words of racing, he got into the presidential limo – affectionately known as “The Beast” – and led the drivers around the track.
There is not a single Democratic nominee who could come close to matching this level of showmanship, and not a one who could so connect culturally with America without Hollywood’s help. No matter how many billions Bloomberg spends nor how Pete positions himself nor how Warren, well, lies, none of them could even dream of a moment that will so resonate with so many Americans across the country.
Even Bernie, who does connect with young voters with his message of Free! Free! Free!, can’t capture what President Trump pulled off on a Sunday afternoon in Florida. So how does the Democratic apparatchik respond? Like this
Right. Sure. A political event. OK, boomer.
Everything the president does can be seen as political, regardless of party. There is no doubt that it can in this case as well. But snide, nonsense comments won’t change the facts: It was politically adept. It was culturally connected. It was, even for the casual observer, what the Republican party has been unable to do for election after election after the election: Look normal. Look like they were having fun. And, yes, look cool.
Sometimes, it’s best to say nothing. Know when you’re beaten, and gear up for your next fight. But not Maggie Haberman, seemingly the embodiment of the Old Gray Lady. She not only has to comment, but she has to present it as if Trump is doing something wrong…immoral…unacceptable. Rolling Stone gave her cover by adding the racial element:
Trump is not the first Republican president to visit the Daytona speedway for NASCAR’s biggest event of the year. Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush all made appearances at the race, which makes sense considering NASCAR’s viewing audience tends to be mostly Republican and overwhelmingly (91 percent) white.
The Daytona 500 is not a “political event.” It’s a cool race and a great excuse to enjoy some Florida sun and drink beer (even when the race gets postponed due to rain, as it did on Sunday.) And, in case Haberman was unaware, presidents often show up to sporting events:
And sometimes, they use “The Beast” to pick up their friends…who are famous comedians…to do a talk show:
Tony Katz discusses Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ remarks on the stump for Sen. Bernie Sanders, and whether or not she’s going “off script.” As Tony says, she writes her own script. How could the Sanders campaign not know this?
