Bernie Sanders socialism moves to Democratic mainstream

© Provided by The Hill Bernie Sanders and democratic socialism increasingly looks to be winning over the Democratic Party, raising concerns among some Democrats about whether it could hurt the party in this year’s midterms, and the presidential race of 2020. The biggest Democratic star of the summer is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who, like Sanders, is a Democratic Socialist. Prospective Democratic candidates in the 2020 presidential election are flocking to the Sanders “Medicare for all” bill, which would institute a single-payer healthcare system across the country. And a new Gallup poll this week found that 57 percent of Democrats view socialism favorably, compared to 47 percent who view capitalism positively. Two years after Sanders energized progressives during the 2016...

Midwest tornadoes reported as severe weather heads to Northeast

There were 75 damaging storm reports on Thursday, with tornadoes reported in Illinois, Kansas and Iowa. Radar estimates showed more than 5 inches of rain fell just south of Tulsa, Oklahoma, over just a few hours, flooding streets and stalling cars.

The Note: Trump’s week of disrespect

The TAKE with MaryAlice Parks R-E-S-P-E-C-T. This week was about people asking for respect, and, of course, paying our respects to the late and greatest Aretha Franklin. Off the bat, former White House senior adviser Omorosa Manigault Newman, expressed her concerns over the president’s respect, or lack thereof, for minority groups. She claimed to have heard a tape where he used an unbelievable racial epithet and current White House staff stumbled through lines in the coming days about how they have never heard him say the n-word. Former CIA Director John Brennan and other former intelligence officers too talked about respect for precedent, as they responded to the president’s decision to revoke Brennan’s security clearance. Having a clearance did not mean that he had access to secret docum...

Bethenny Frankel Boyfriend’s Last Words Help Explain Trump Tower Death 8/17/2018 1:00 AM PDT EXCLUSIVE Bethenny Frankel‘s late boyfriend, Dennis Shields, was able to utter a few words to EMTs and police before he died — and they paint a clearer picture of how he passed. Sources say Dennis told the responding EMTs and cops he’d taken some of his prescribed oxycodone as well as Vicodin and a sleeping pill … all to ease the pain from a back injury.   Doctors warn that opioids should never be taken with sleeping pills or other sedatives. Opioids slow respiratory function and sleeping pills do the same. The two combined can have a dangerous, synergistic effect that could result in death. As we reported, Dennis’ assistant had administered 2 doses of Narcan bef...
