Curmudgeonly Cartoons: Evangelical Endorses Lucifer?

According to Christian Broadcast News, Mike Pence’s endorsement of Ted Cruz on Friday “makes perfect sense.”
First of all, Pence and Cruz are both solid constitutional conservatives. Do they have a few differences? Sure, but those are on the margins. Pence’s views line up nicely with how Cruz sees the world. As two born-again evangelicals, they see the world through a biblical prism. Their worldviews are identical in nature. 
Secondly, if Pence is looking at a future presidential run, he can’t afford to tick off the conservative grassroots of the Republican Party. A Trump endorsement would taint him in the future and potentially kill any chance of a future presidential run.
I can’t remember a more tepid, watered-down endorsement.  Perhaps that’s because, according to Eliana Johnson of National Review, he’s in a tough reelection battle against former Indiana house speaker John Gregg, the same man he defeated by just 2.9 points when he was elected to the governorship four years ago. Since then, circumstances have changed. Once a widely popular governor whom conservatives twice encouraged to run for president, first in 2012 and then in 2016, Pence has seen his approval ratings fall sharply—by about 15 percentage points—since he signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act a year ago; fumbled his way through public appearances defending that decision; and tightened restrictions on abortion in the state. He has taken a hit with women and business interests.

Poor Governor Pence.  You can’t blame him for being queasy.  He came under intense pressure from conservative donors, politicians, and media figures—many of them close personal friends—to back Cruz.  Had he sat on the fence, the growing chorus of allegations that he was putting his own career ahead of what many see as the fight for the survival of the Republican Party would endanger his reelection bid.

In an election year unlike any I can remember, endorsements just haven’t meant much and the question remains—will his make enough of a difference to stop Trump's march to the 1237 delegates needed for nomination or will it be the shot in the arm Cruz needs to survive?  In a few days we’ll have the answer.

Donald Trump is factually challenged. I guess that's a nice way to speak about his colossal ignorance on so many subjects. For example.

On The O'Reilly factor tonight, Donald Trump said of Afghanistan:
"That's one place frankly instead of going to Iraq we should have probably gone there first".
Except, we did. We invaded Afghanistan in October of 2001, less than one month after the 9-11 attack. The invasion of Iraq was March 20, 2003. Is it the word "first" that's giving you trouble, Donnie? Or have you just not been paying attention to anything that doesn't personally line your pockets?

He was still nattering on with O'Reilly about how we should have and still might seize Iraqi oil and keep it for the US, when I tuned him out. This is a guy who, on one hand, says "America will continue forever to play the role of peacemaker", and then turns around and says we should plunder Iraq's oil.

I noted before on these pages, Trump's shallow or inadequate understanding of the Keystone XL pipeline (August 17, 2015 The Trouble With Trump, Part XXIII)
"I hope we don't need the pipeline, 'cause it comes out of Canada,"
-Trump on Mark Levin's radio show.

To which I replied:

Any Mention of "Crackers" Is Probably Racist!

The Repugnant Hate Of The Left NEVER Diminishes

SIMI VALLEY, UNITED STATES: Former first lady Nancy Reagan, along with his children Patti Davis, Ron Reagan, Jr. and Michael stand over the casket of former President Ronald Reagan during the interment ceremony at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library 11 June 2004 in Simi Valley, California. Reagan died of pneumonia due to complications with Alzheimer's at age 93 at his home in California. (Kevork Djansezian - POOL/AFP/Getty Images) 
The children of Ronald Reagan have voiced their outrage after it emerged that Will Ferrell would star and produce Reagan, a Black List script from writer Mike Rosolio about the actor turned president's second term and his battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

A description of the film when it was named to the Black List said; “When Ronald Reagan falls into dementia at the start of his second term, an ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the Commander-In-Chief that he is an actor playing the President in a movie.”

Reagan’s children, Patti Davis and Michael Reagan, both lashed out at Ferrell with Michael writing on Twitter; “What an Outrage....Alzheimer’s is not joke...It kills…You should be ashamed all of you.”

Patti penned a letter to Ferrell:
Dear Mr. Ferrell, 
“I saw the news bulletin—as did everyone—that you intend to portray my father in the throes of Alzheimer’s for a comedy that you are also producing. Perhaps you have managed to retain some ignorance about Alzheimer’s and other versions of dementia. Perhaps if you knew more, you would not find the subject humorous. 
Alzheimer’s doesn’t care if you are President of the United States or a dockworker. It steals what is most precious to a human being—memories, connections, the familiar landmarks of a lifetime that we all come to rely on to hold our place secure in this world and keep us linked to those we have come to know and love.  
I watched as fear invaded my father’s eyes—this man who was never afraid of anything. I heard his voice tremble as he stood in the living room and said, “I don’t know where I am.” I watched helplessly as he reached for memories, for words, that were suddenly out of reach and moving farther away.  
For ten long years he drifted—past the memories that marked his life, past all that was familiar…and mercifully, finally past the fear. 
There was laughter in those years, but there was never humor. 
Alzheimer’s is the ultimate pirate, pillaging a person’s life and leaving an empty landscape behind. It sweeps up entire families, forcing everyone to claw their way through overwhelming grief, confusion, helplessness, and anger.  
Perhaps for your comedy you would like to visit some dementia facilities. I have—I didn’t find anything comedic there, and my hope would be that if you’re a decent human being, you wouldn’t either. 
Twice a week I run a support group called Beyond Alzheimer’s for caregivers and family members of those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. I look into haunted eyes that remind me of my own when my father was ill. I listen to stories of helplessness and loss and am continually moved by the bravery of those who wake up every morning not knowing who their loved one will be that day, or what will be lost.  
The only certainty with Alzheimer’s is that more will be lost and the disease will always win in the end. 
Perhaps you would like to explain to them how this disease is suitable material for a comedy.”
I remember well when Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, eulogized her political soul mate:
We have lost a great president, a great American, and a great man. And I have lost a dear friend. 
In his lifetime Ronald Reagan was such a cheerful and invigorating presence that it was easy to forget what daunting historic tasks he set himself. He sought to mend America's wounded spirit, to restore the strength of the free world, and to free the slaves of communism. These were causes hard to accomplish and heavy with risk.
Yet they were pursued with almost a lightness of spirit. For Ronald Reagan also embodied another great cause—what Arnold Bennett once called `the great cause of cheering us all up'. His politics had a freshness and optimism that won converts from every class and every nation—and ultimately from the very heart of the evil empire. 
Yet his humor often had a purpose beyond humor. In the terrible hours after the attempt on his life, his easy jokes gave reassurance to an anxious world. They were evidence that in the aftermath of terror and in the midst of hysteria, one great heart at least remained sane and jocular.  They were truly grace under pressure. 
And perhaps they signified grace of a deeper kind. Ronnie himself certainly believed that he had been given back his life for a purpose. As he told a priest after his recovery, “Whatever time I’ve got left now belongs to the Big Fella Upstairs.” 
And surely it is hard to deny that Ronald Reagan's life was providential, when we look at what he achieved in the eight years that followed. 
And when his enemies tested American resolve, they soon discovered that his resolve was firm and unyielding. 
Ronald Reagan carried the American people with him in his great endeavors because there was perfect sympathy between them. He and they loved America and what it stands for—freedom and opportunity for ordinary people. 
As an actor in Hollywood's golden age, he helped to make the American dream live for millions all over the globe. His own life was a fulfillment of that dream. He never succumbed to the embarrassment some people feel about an honest expression of love of country. 
Ronald Reagan's life was rich not only in public achievement, but also in private happiness. Indeed, his public achievements were rooted in his private happiness. The great turning point of his life was his meeting and marriage with Nancy. 
On that we have the plain testimony of a loving and grateful husband: `Nancy came along and saved my soul'. We share her grief today. But we also share her pride—and the grief and pride of Ronnie’s children. 
For the final years of his life, Ronnie's mind was clouded by illness. That cloud has now lifted. He is himself again—more himself than at any time on this earth. For we may be sure that the Big Fella Upstairs never forgets those who remember Him. And as the last journey of this faithful pilgrim took him beyond the sunset, and as heaven's morning broke, I like to think—in the words of Bunyan—that `all the trumpets sounded on the other side.’
We here still move in twilight. But we have one beacon to guide us that Ronald Reagan never had. We have his example. Let us give thanks today for a life that achieved so much for all of God's children."
I bear no shame in confessing her words bring tears to my eyes even today twelve years after his passing.

I miss the great statesman deeply.  The loss, for me, has been devastating.  The America Reagan loved and defended mightily has coarsened and filled with hate. 

In 1965, legendary radio broadcaster Paul Harvey, warned of America’s decline through permissiveness and liberalism in his famous broadcast, “If I Were the Devil”.
“If I were the devil, I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington…”
Will Ferrell and all who are associated with the production of Reagan are gutless vultures—part of a cesspool of human garbage where the Left is venerated and the Right eviscerated. 

State Department Finally Gives (Almost) Four Year Old Benghazi Phone Transcripts to Judicial Watch, and They're Filled With LIES

Judicial Watch(Washington, DC)– The Obama State Department last week admitted it withheld a key Benghazi email of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from Judicial Watch since at least September 2014. If the State Department disclosed the email when first supposedly found, Clinton’s email server and her hidden emails would have been disclosed nearly two years ago, before Clinton authorized the alleged deletion of tens of thousands of emails.

Huma Almost Wept Because She Feared Hillary's Wrath

Washington Free Beacon - Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin is so devoted to her boss that she almost sobbed upon learning Clinton had to carry her own bag, a Newsweek profile revealed Thursday.

“Abedin took her duties so seriously, the source recalled, that when she learned that Clinton had once carried her own bag up a flight of stairs in her aide’s absence, Abedin nearly burst into tears,” Newsweek reported.

The same source said that Clinton once snapped her fingers and said “Gum” to Abedin.

“A lot of times, Hillary would snap her fingers and go, ‘Gum.’ And Huma would fetch it,” the source said.

Although Abedin no longer totes her boss’s bags around, she still carries Clinton’s infamous cell phone and serves her boss coffee and Mexican food.  Read the rest at the Washington Free Beacon.

Cruz Is Clawing Back

Even if John Kasich, the graceless loser, had dropped out of the race for the White House weeks ago, the returns from Tuesday’s Acela Primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island show Donald Trump would have won them in landslides. 
Cruz, the “originalist” constitutional lawyer and former solicitor general of Texas authored more than 80 US Supreme Court briefs and made more than 40 oral SCOTUS arguments winning important victories on gun rights, the Pledge of Allegiance and the right to display the Ten Commandments. 

He’s a fighter and was once described as “off the charts brilliant”.  He has absolutely no intention of surrendering to Trump. 

Today, Cruz announced his running mate would be Carly Fiorina.  I’ve always liked Carly and she will most certainly be an effective attack dog given her blistering assaults on the Democrats’ “presumptive nominee” who is under FBI investigation.

The unambiguous truth is Cruz has very few arrows left in his quiver.  Carly may not make any difference in Indiana. Some pundits have referred to the Indiana primary as Cruz’s “Alamo” and we all know how that worked out.

He knows he is under-performing in Oregon and New Mexico so it appears his strategy is concentrated on the California primary where 172 delegates are at stake.

Coach, If You're Not Going To Use That Chair, How About Throwing It Over To Me?

During a campaign rally Tuesday night, Sen. Ted Cruz was speaking to his supporters at Hoosier Gym in Knightstown, IN.  Cruz, like any politician worth his salt, chose the gym made famous in the movie Hoosiers for what he hoped would be a magnificent photo opportunity.

Everything was going along just fine until the moment he tried to recreate one of the most memorable moments in the beloved film. 

In the movie, Gene Hackman has a player measure the height of the basket to show that there's no difference between the court his small town team was used to playing on and the larger arena where the state tournament was taking place.

A man at one end of the court had already climbed a ladder and Cruz asked if he had a tape measure.  He did and Cruz asked him to measure the height.  Everyone in that gym knew where he was going with this, but to the uninitiated it wasn’t clear what point he was trying to make.

And then it happened.  He referred to the hoop as a basketball ring.  Oh my!  In basketball vernacular, it was an airball.

It was truly cringe-worthy
This evening, Donald Trump will appear at the Indiana State Fairgrounds with college basketball’s legendary Hall of Fame Head Coach Bobby Knight.

Knight has not returned to the state since his firing in 2000.  He has held a grudge ever since that fateful day and famously said, "When my time on earth is gone, and my activities here are passed, I want they bury me upside down, and my critics can kiss my ass!"

Knight ran a clean program having never been sanctioned by the NCAA for recruiting violations and for graduating most of his players. He was no stranger to controversy; he famously threw a chair across the court during a game against Purdue in 1985, was arrested for assault, and regularly displayed a combative nature during encounters with members of the press.

I despise Bobby Knight.  It would be sacrilege for me to feel any differently since I am a devout Duke Blue Devils fan.  I root for the Carolina Tarheels except when they take the court against Duke.  I also loved Jim Valvano, but then everybody loved Coach V.

Coach Knight remains the object of fanatical devotion from his former players and Indiana fans. His name still carries a lot of weight with Hoosier fans and Donald Trump, who enjoyed a 5-state sweep in Tuesday’s Acela Primary, is counting on that devotion to challenge Ted Cruz in next Tuesday’s Indiana presidential primary.

Cruz-Kasich Plotting Their Doom?

With more losses waiting for Ted Cruz and John Kasich in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island in Tuesday’s “Acela Primary”, the two also-rans announced their agreement to join forces against Donald Trump.

We learned today via a new report from CNN that the man who has won just one state and has garnered 267,263 fewer votes than Marco Rubio who dropped out of the race for president five weeks ago, approached the Cruz campaign just after the Ohio governor won the primary in his home state.

Cruz initially did not respond, but in the following weeks talks between the two camps started in earnest.  They reached an agreement after working out the details of an alliance during last week’s RNC meeting in Hollywood, FL.

The bombshell announcement came shortly after the Fox News Town Hall in Philadelphia on Sunday night.  The premise of their strategy dangerous gamble to stop Trump in primaries in Indiana, New Mexico and Oregon will see Kasich fold his tent in Indiana to open the way for Cruz and Cruz will do the same in New Mexico and Oregon for Kasich.

The partnership could also help Kasich financially, reports CNN, as his campaign wrapped up March with just $1.2 million left in its war chest.   So pathetic is Kasich’s run for the Oval Office that donations did not come in after he won his home state.  People are not fools.

Conversely, Heat Street noted sources close to the Cruz campaign say that morale is waning as Cruz and his team begins to grapple with the idea they’ve been used to keep Trump out of the nomination.
Here’s a salient point from Hot Air’s Jazz Shaw that bears consideration:
 “  it wasn’t so long ago that anyone with a career in the dreaded GOP establishment wouldn’t spit on Cruz’s head if his hair were on fire. (I mean, it’s not as if any high ranking party members were joking about murdering him on the Senate floor or taking cyanide rather than voting for him, right?) 
As anyone who has watched Game of Thrones will tell you, caution is required if you make a deal with a traitor. If you rely on a victory which requires delegates ostensibly “bound” to Trump but who are willing to sell him out on the second ballot, the loyalty of some of them may well be up for grabs. When the moment of decision comes and someone begins talking about the polls which show Kasich as the only one beating Clinton in the general, how firm will their resolve be? Or if the rules committee completely scraps the current guidelines, will they suddenly get stars in their eyes and go all weak in the knees if the delegates suddenly try to drag a blushing Paul Ryan back onto the stage to admit that he just might possibly, maybe consider accepting the nomination if the entire convention begged and pleaded with him earnestly enough? 
We’re going to have quite a few delegates who are technically bound to Trump on the first ballot, but since the candidates themselves didn’t get to pick them who can really say what’s in their hearts? If Trump can’t lock down 1237 by the close of the California voting I wouldn’t rule out anything at this point.”

Kasich, Kasick, Kaysick—Trump Wants John To Change The Spelling Of His Name

Because he has difficulty pronouncing his name, Donald Trump wants rival John Kasich to change the spelling of his name.  I’m not making this shit up.

During a campaign stop in Connecticut on Saturday, the GOP front-runner abruptly paused mid-speech to ask, “Can we ask him to change the spelling of his name?  Are we allowed to do that?  It’s so ridiculous.”

“I don’t know how to pronounce his name—Kasich.  It’s i-c-h.  Every time I see it I say Kas-itch, but it’s pronounced Kay-sick,” he said mockingly.
In case you didn’t know, there are some interesting elements from Trump’s own ancestry.  His real last name is Drumpf.

The Donald’s grandfather was a German immigrant named Frederick Drumpf who emigrated to the U.S. in 1885 and became a naturalized citizen in 1892. 
The move sent him on a wild journey across America into the seedy brothel industry of the Wild West, making him a fortune and allowing him to dodge army service and taxes back home in Germany.
At some point, he started calling himself “Frederick Trump,” but it is unclear if he ever changed his name officially.  Some have speculated that he didn’t want to be known as “Drumpf” because of prevailing prejudice against Germans (which would heighten, of course, during World War I).
Frederick returned to his native Kallstadt in Germany’s Rheinland to marry his sweetheart Elisabeth Christ and settle down with his wealth, but he was refused repatriation and was forced back to Queens, NY to start a family.  He would die in 1918 during the Spanish Flu epidemic.
Of course, his grandson would attain incredible wealth and global fame under the name “Trump” which means to fabricate or deceive and the phrase “to trump up” meaning to forge or invent as in “trumped-up charges.”
“Trump” is an actual name of English origin and according to linguistic sources is a metonymic occupational name for a trumpeter—appropriate, wouldn’t you say, for someone who likes blowing his own horn.
This morning on CBS’s Face The Nation, host John Dickerson asked the governor for his thoughts on Trump’s suggestion, the governor merely said, “God bless him.”  No word on whether he wants to “Make Donald Drumpf Again.” 

The Chinese Invented Feng Shui After Emperor Tang-Woo Hit His Shin On A Dishwasher

Charles Moore, who covers politics for The Telegraph opined:
Mr. Obama’s most famous electoral message was “Yes, we can”. His electoral message to the British people is “No, you can’t”. 
If we want influence, security, free trade, democracy and the rule of law, we can get these things only by staying in the European Union, he informs us. We cannot contemplate living—as his own country so proudly does—as a wholly independent state. If we do, we “go to the back of the queue” in trade, he told the press conference last night. 
The president has spent most of his time in office neglecting old allies and seeking new ones, being chummier with Iran than Israel and with Castro than Cameron. [Emphasis mine]. 
He belatedly praises the network of alliances and programs—the Marshall Plan, Bretton Woods, NATO, the United Nations Security Council—which helped create the post-war order, but what he has actually done is to tiptoe away from NATO commitments, hoping that the EU will take up the slack.
Moore well remembers the firestorm The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer created when one his first acts as president was to remove the bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office.  Britons viewed the move as a snub, one of many I might add, to the special relationship our two countries have maintained throughout our history,
He said he took the sculpture of Britain's wartime leader out of his office, where it had been placed by George W. Bush, because “there are only so many tables where you can put busts, otherwise it starts looking a little cluttered.”  The White House originally denied that the bust had been removed and sent back to Britain, before admitting that it actually had. 

He insisted that he had not snubbed Churchill or the Brits, adding: '”In the residence, on the second floor, my private office is called the Treaty Room and right outside the door of the Treaty Room, so that I see it every day, including on weekends when I'm going into that office to watch a basketball game, the primary image I see is a bust of Winston Churchill.  It's there voluntarily, because I can do anything on the second floor. I love Winston Churchill, love the guy.”

The controversy over Churchill’s bust happened in 2009.  So why did the president feel compelled to address the matter now?  Seems London’s mayor, Boris Johnson, told London’s newspaper The Sun the bust’s removal was a “sign of the part-Kenyan president’s ancestral dislike for the British Empire—of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender.”

I Gotta Say Pole Dancing Just Ain’t What It Used To Be

Far be it from me to question the logic of our Leftist overlords who now describe Hillary Clinton and others as “Democratic whores.”

You’ll remember that last week Bernie Sanders held a rally in New York City’s Washington Square that reportedly some 27,000 attended.  At that rally Dr. Paul Song made a rather unusual statement according to this transcript:
“Now Secretary Clinton has said that Medicare for all will never happen. [boos] Well, I agree with Secretary Clinton that Medicare for all will never happen if we have a president who never aspires for something greater than the status quo. [cheers] Medicare for all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate Democratic whores [cheers] who are beholden to big pharma and the private insurance industry instead of us.”
In a separate, but totally related matter, Joy Reid of MSNBC rolled a video on her show of Sanders supporters protesting Hillary’s $33,400-a-plate fundraiser at George Clooney’s glitzy Nob Hill home.  Reid was shocked at people “throwing dollar bills as if in a strip club.”

Random Trump Mean Tweet

The Washington Examiner’s David Drucker reports: “Donald Trump’s campaign is going all out to win delegates in Nevada, offering to cover transportation and lodging costs for Nevada supporters who travel to Reno in mid-May to participate in delegate elections.

Trump’s Nevada activities contradict his claim that he has deliberately declined to invest resources in the election of delegates to the Republican nominating convention in Cleveland because the process is ‘corrupt.’”

Shutting Down Dissent: Even Bernie Is A Censorius Dick

On April 14th, the Bernie Sanders campaign sent a cease and desist letter claiming Liberty Maniacs was unlawfully selling its parodies because they used the likeness of the official Bernie Sanders for President logo on this shirt.

According to its website, Liberty Maniacs “is an independent brand that designs and sells some of the world's favorite political and satirical apparel and merchandise. From hilarious 2016 election gear,  funny political t-shirts, libertarian minded posters, art prints, humorous mugs, and thousands of other products sold by some of the most trusted retailers. Liberty Maniacs has become a top source for liberty lovers across the globe of every stripe, and a thorn in the side of everyone from the NSA to top politicians."

Dan McCall, the owner of Liberty Maniacs and his lawyer Paul Levy, have successfully shot down bogus trademark demands from the Ready for Hillary pre-campaign PAC which tried to suppress Liberty Maniac’s “Ready for Oligarchy” parody, threats from the NSA for calling it “The only part of the government that actually listens”, the Ben Carson campaign and the Republican National Committee for using the elephant logo to describe the Republican Party.

Mr. Levy notes, “Each time, the lawyers representing candidates or political committees made stupid legal threats based on a misunderstanding of trademark law (or using pretended trademark law claims as an excuse), the public response to the demands taught them about the consequences of making such demands.  Now it is the turn of Bernie Sanders' campaign to learn a lesson about trademark bullying.”

When McCall introduced the new t-shirt he described it this way:
With the lovable personality of a drowsy badger and the voice of a bullfrog, Bernie is your comrade in fighting the good fight against oligarchical imperialism, exploitative corporatism, economic logic, electoral probability, male pattern baldness, Clintonian coronation, and whatever other Sisyphean task you can shake your fist at.
This shirt includes a pantheon of socialist paladins just to confuse, fascinate, and cause the finger-wagging, nitpicking partisan to hilariously instruct upon the proper definition of socialism while everyone within a five foot radius rolls their eyes in aversion.
I’ve found myself a new hero and I think I’ll support Mr. McCall’s delightful entrepreneurial enterprise by purchasing the Free Shit tee, the Hillary for Prison tee and a Trump We Shall Overcomb mug just for shits and giggles ‘cause that’s how I roll.

I love the smell of capitalism in the morning.

Never A Dill Moment With This Boastful Windsack

Do the good people of the Buckeye State feel embarrassed by their governor?  I don’t see how they can avoid it.

The mailman’s son was scrounging for votes in the Big Apple and stopped by the Upper East Side’s famous P.J. Berstein kosher deli.  Ever the typical rube, he demonstrated his goofiness by showing the press how to eat a pickle.  He refused to eat a pastrami sandwich.  For the life of me I can’t understand eating pickles in lieu of a gen-u-wine deli pastrami sammich.

His campaign calamities include eating pizza with a fork and making a veritable pig of himself at a food market on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx.  Kasich grubbed on two plates of spaghetti, a sandwich with mozzarella, pickles, salami, provolone and hot peppers.  After downing all that he ordered pasta fagioli.

Damn.  Does he have a tapeworm?

Intellectually Impoverished Milksop Socialist Braggart Hypocrisy

You work hard, stretch every penny, but chances are you pay a higher tax rate than Bernie Sanders.  In other words:  HE’S EXACTLY LIKE MITT ROMNEY.

The socialist candidate for president released his 2014 federal tax returns on Friday, following weeks of haranguing by the other Democrat presidential candidate under FBI investigation and the media. 

The New York Times examined his return and discovered the couple’s income was $205,617 which includes $156,441 in wages and salary and $46.213 from Social Security Benefits.  The returns show the couple gave $8,350 to charity and paid $27,653 in federal income taxes.

Socialists hate charity.  There’s this from Time’s political reporter Zeke Miller:
But check this out. Apparently, socialism means paying for Bernie’s meals and entertainment expenses:
