AOC also wants to eliminate ‘work requirements’ for food stamps

Letting no crisis go to waste, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has seized upon the global outbreak of the coronavirus as an opportunity to call for a massive expansion of the U.S. federal government, including moving to a “Medicare for All” health care system.

In a tweet, the freshman congresswoman said, “Right about now would be a great time to weigh emergency measures like … Extending Medicare/Medicaid coverage to all.” In addition, Ocasio-Cortez called for “[e]liminating work requirements for SNAP [also known as food stamps] &other assistance.” She also demanded “UBI programs” with no strings attached.

Ocasio-Cortez has been a longtime supporter of the United States adopting a single-payer, government-run health insurance system.

Increased unemployment insurance ‘not nearly enough’

In a subsequent tweet, the controversial House representative noted that while some of her supporters were mentioning unemployment insurance benefits as a solution to help Americans who become displaced or unable to work as a result of the pandemic, she believes such a measure is “not nearly enough.”

She added, “There are enormous sectors of our economy (tipped workers, freelance, shift workers) who may not be ‘unemployed’ but whose lives are still dramatically disrupted to the point of eviction, etc.”

Details of the House Democrats’ relief package

The freshman representative’s demands seem to have fallen upon deaf ears among her colleagues in Washington. The legislation unveiled by House Democrats on Wednesday calls for paid leave, free COVID-19 testing, and additional funding to help states address economic hardships, but makes no mention of Medicare for All.

Fox News reported the 124-page bill will be debated in the House at some point on Thursday, as leaders from both parties work to finalize the details of the legislative package. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Thursday afternoon the Senate will delay its recess that was originally scheduled for next week until Congress passes a coronavirus relief bill.

Trump is winning up to 47.5% of Hispanics and a whopping 27.3% of African Americans

With Americans increasingly saying the Democratic Party has moved too far to the left and record low unemployment levels among minorities, it’s no surprise that a new poll shows President Donald Trump’s standing among black and Hispanic voters in Florida has significantly improved since 2016.

According to survey data compiled by Florida Atlantic University and obtained by TheBlaze, regardless of whether Trump faces former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in November, he is poised to once again win the Sunshine State. In its poll of 1,200 voters, FAU found that Biden fared slightly better, losing 51 to 49 percent to Trump, compared to Sanders who trails the president by six points, 53-47 percent.

Trump’s success in the key swing state is being driven by gains in black and Hispanic communities. While exit polls show that Trump won 35 percent of Florida’s Hispanic vote in 2016, the March FAU study finds the president winning 45.4 of the coveted constituency to Biden’s 54.6 percent.

Sanders — whose Feb. 23 comments praising the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s “literacy programs” sparked a major controversy on the campaign trail — would fare even worse against Trump among Florida Hispanics. The FAU poll shows Trump winning 47.5 percent of the Hispanic vote to the Vermont democratic socialist’s 52.5 percent. The one-time front-runner’s unpopularity with Florida Latinos is likely driven by the fact that over a third of the state’s Hispanics are of Cuban ancestry who vigorously oppose socialism. Additionally, Miami-Dade and Broward counties contain large blocs of Venezuelan, Nicaraguan, and other immigrants who fled far-left regimes and are turned-off by Sanders’ history of lauding Latin American socialists.

Both results for Trump — against either Biden or Sanders — would be the best showing for a Republican presidential candidate since 2004 when George W. Bush carried Florida with 56 percent of the state’s Hispanic vote.

Socialism is also unpopular among black voters

The Democratic Party’s leftward shift also appears to be alienating black voters in Florida. While the FAU poll shows both Biden and Sanders capturing the vast majority of the state’s African Americans, they would do so by slimmer margins than past Democratic presidential candidates.

For instance, in 2016, Trump won 8% of black voters in Florida compared to Hillary Clinton’s 84%. Fast-forward four years and Trump is standing at 18.1% and a whopping 27.3% against Biden and Sanders, respectively. Either would be a historic improvement for Republicans among black voters who make-up 14 percent of Florida’s electorate.

Minorities are changing their minds

The FAU poll’s black and Hispanic samples consisted of 157 and 247 respondents, respectively, which means a higher margin of error; however, the study indicates that minorities have warmed up to Trump since 2016.

Among the questions the researchers asked the voters was whether they voted for Trump or Clinton in 2016 and the results were consistent with 2016 exit polls with 30 percent of Hispanics and 10 percent of African Americans indicating they backed the president that year. These results could mean that Trump is winning over minority voters who backed Clinton in 2016; that he’s expanding his base of support and attracting new black and Hispanic supporters; or both.

The survey was conducted March 5-7.

Biden is trouncing Sanders among millennials and Hispanics

While Democratic primary voters in California and Colorado may be warming up to socialism, a new poll in Florida shows Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) getting crushed in the state’s upcoming primary election on March 10.

According to a statewide survey of Democratic primary voters by St. Pete Polls, former Vice President Joe Biden holds a whopping 49-point lead over his democratic socialist rival in the Sunshine State, 61% to 12%. The poll, which was conducted March 4, included Democratic candidates Mike Bloomberg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) before they suspended their campaigns, which could mean that Biden’s lead could be even larger than the poll indicates.

Endorsements from Latin American leftists resurface

The poll results follow weeks of controversies surrounding Sanders’ campaign after the one-time front-runner for the Democratic Party nomination maintained his praise for the literacy programs of late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro during a Feb. 23 interview on “60 Minutes.”

Sanders’ pro-Castro comments were blasted by fellow Democratic lawmakers, including Florida Reps. Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. Even former gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, who campaigned with Sanders during the 2018 Democratic primary, has criticized Sanders’ comments.

In the weeks since Sanders’ remarks, videos have resurfaced of Latin American leftists praising Sanders, including Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro and Fidel Castro’s niece, Mariela Castro. In one of the videos from June 2016, Maduro described the presidential candidate as “a revolutionary friend,” echoing similar comments made by Nicaraguan ruler Daniel Ortega in August. Meanwhile, Diario de Cuba reported Feb. 27 that during a 2016 interview, Mariela Castro said that she would vote for Sanders if she were a U.S. citizen.

Unpopular in Florida across all demographic groups

Sanders’ unpopularity in Florida is not surprising given the state’s large anti-socialist Hispanic electorate, including many Cuban, Venezuelan, and Nicaraguan voters who fled far-left regimes.

While Sanders has dominated the Latino vote in other primary states, the survey by St. Pete Polls shows him significantly under-performing his rivals among this demographic. Florida Hispanics prefer Biden over Sanders by a 59.9% to 9.5% margin. The former vice president also crushes Sanders among black voters in Florida, 67.9% to 8.5%.

Although the Vermont democratic socialist has argued that his campaign is uniquely positioned to defeat President Trump in a general election given Sanders’ ability to turn out young voters, the Florida poll suggests that doing so would actually hurt him since he trails Biden by 47 points, 60.7% to 13.5% among 18- to 29-year-olds.

An analysis by FiveThirtyEight only gives Sanders an 8% chance of obtaining the necessary 1,991 delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination prior to the party’s convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this summer.

Biden and Obama named a political operative to lead the 2014 Ebola response

Following his victory in the South Carolina primary, former Vice President Joe Biden did a Sunday morning political talk show blitz in an effort to continue building momentum behind his candidacy as he and the Democratic field head into the “Super Tuesday” election on March 3. One way that Biden is working to position himself as his party’s front-runner is by attacking President Donald Trump.

Asked by ABC host George Stephanopoulos how his administration would have handled the federal response to the coronavirus differently, Biden went on a rant that was riddled with falsehoods and hypocrisy.

Obama and Biden named a political operative as ‘Ebola Czar’

Biden began his answer by stating that his response to the coronavirus would have been “fundamentally different” from Trump’s handling of the matter. He then cited the Obama administration’s handling of the Ebola virus as an example of his own experience handling virus outbreaks and attacked Trump for “putting someone in charge [Vice President Mike Pence] who is not a scientist.”

There’s only one problem: The person whom Biden and former president Barack Obama named as the country’s “Ebola Czar” in 2014 was Ron Klain, the former vice president’s chief of staff. Klain was also not a scientist. In fact, he is a longtime Democratic political operative.

Trump is not “muzzling scientists”

In his diatribe, Biden also accused President Trump of “muzzling scientists.” This is not true.

As TheBlaze reported Saturday, the scientist that Biden is referring to, Dr. Anthony Fauci, expressly denied that he or anyone is being “muzzled” at a White House press briefing on the coronavirus.

“I have never been muzzled — never — and I’ve been doing this since the administration of Ronald Reagan,” he said. “I’m not being muzzled by this administration.”

In fact, Dr. Fauci explained the White House has cleared his requests to speak to the media about the coronavirus situation.

The CDC’s funding was not cut

Biden also claimed the Trump administration “cut the funding for the CDC,” a charge that has been debunked by the Associated Press, which analyzed the claim Biden made and determined no such cuts ever took place. In fact, at least one independent expert has applauded the administration’s response to the coronavirus.

“The CDC’s response has been excellent, as it has been in the past,” John Auerbach, president of the nonpartisan Trust for America’s Health, which works closely with officials at the local, state, and federal levels to enhance the nation’s readiness for health-related crises, said.

‘Unless his hair is on fire, he needs to be in Arkansas’ to testify

Joe Biden has had a rough few weeks. After losing three consecutive Democratic primary election battles in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, an Arkansas judge has now ordered the former vice president’s son to testify in court in person.

According to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Circuit Judge Holly Meyer has ordered Hunter Biden to appear next month for a deposition after he said he was unavailable until April.

“He needs to make himself available and unless his hair is on fire, he needs to be in Arkansas and he needs to be in a deposition,” she told the lawyers involved in the case during a recent telephone call.

What’s this about?

Hunter Biden is the defendant in a paternity lawsuit filed by Lunden Alexis Roberts. In January, an Arkansas court determined that the 50-year-old Biden is the father of her toddler after a DNA established his paternity.

The legal battle now turns to the issue of child support, which Biden has delayed, claiming that he is unemployed.

In a Nov. 27 affidavit, Biden swore to the court that he did not have a reliable source of income since last May.

Clint Lancaster, an attorney representing the child’s mother, had tried unsuccessfully to depose Biden before a March 13 pretrial hearing. However, Biden’s attorney, Brent Langdon, has argued a notice of deposition instructing Biden to testify in Little Rock on March 5, was “unduly burdensome and oppressive.”

Langdon wrote that Biden “can be available April 1, 2020,” in a “motion to quash” and “motion for protective order” he filed on Tuesday.

“My client cannot be available prior to that date,” he argued.

However, during a conference call with lawyers on Wednesday, Judge Meyer probed Langdon on Biden’s availability and current employment status.

“My question to you is, why could your client not be available until after April 1? All the information I have is that he’s unemployed,” she said, according to the Democrat Gazette.

Langdon did not tell the court what was keeping Biden so busy, the report said.

What else?

Democrats fret that Hunter Biden testifying in court could further jeopardize his father’s campaign, as he could be forced to disclose the nature and sources of his business dealings in Ukraine, which came under scrutiny during the Democratic-led impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump.

Judge Meyer ordered Hunter Biden to appear in court in January after he was accused of improperly withholding financial records. Hunter Biden was instructed to “show cause, if any exists, as to why he should not be held in contempt for any of the alleged violations of this Court’s orders.”

Hunter Biden has denied any allegations of wrongdoing.

‘I am scared to death, I really am’

A newly released Morning Consult poll taken entirely after the New Hampshire primary seems to confirm the worst fears among some Democratic Party leaders: Sen. Bernie Sanders is now the clear front-runner for their party’s nomination.

With 29 percent of the poll’s respondents indicating they would vote for the Vermont democratic socialist, Sanders tops the field of candidates. He has an ample lead over former Vice President Joe Biden and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who stand at 19 and 18 percent, respectively, with Democratic voters.

Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg comes in at fourth place with 11 percent, while Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, once considered the favorite to win the nomination, is in fifth place with 10 percent. Meanwhile, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who had a surprisingly strong finish in the New Hampshire primary, is the favorite among 5 percent of Democrats nationwide.

For the survey, Morning Consult interviewed 2,639 registered voters nationwide who indicated they may vote in the Democratic primary or caucuses in their state.

‘Poor reading for Biden’

According to pollster Eli Yokley, the poll is bad news for Biden, who political commentators like Ben Shapiro have said is “clogging” the “moderate lane” in the Democratic primary.

“The results are poor reading for Biden, who continues a dramatic drop that erases the national lead he held for over a year until his fourth-place showing in the Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses,” Yokley wrote in a memo accompanying the poll results.

In his analysis, Yokley notes that the race was tighter before the New Hampshire primary, when Sanders’ lead over Biden was within the margin of error, 25 to 22 percent.

“The decline in Biden’s support comes amid faltering voter confidence over his perceived general-election strength, even as he banks his candidacy for the Democratic nod on the more diverse electorates driving nominating contests in Nevada and South Carolina ahead of Super Tuesday.”

The researcher also said that Biden’s standing with black voters is deteriorating as he enters the crucial South Carolina primary.

“Among black voters — one of Biden’s strongest blocs of support — confidence in his chances of beating Trump fell 10 points, to 21 percent. Roughly a third of black voters (32 percent) said Sanders is Democrats’ best chance to beat Trump, up 9 points from last week, and 21 percent said Bloomberg, up 7 points.”

‘I’m scared to death …’

Sanders’ 10-point lead comes as Democratic leaders are openly fretting about the impact of his campaign on down-ballot Democrats in key states across the country and whether an open socialist can win the presidency.

“If he’s at the top of the ticket in 2020, it’s going to be a bad year for Democrats in Florida,” said Florida state Rep. Javier Fernandez to the Miami Herald. Fernandez is running for a swing Senate seat in South Florida.

This sentiment was echoed by veteran Democratic strategist James Carville, who said he’s “scared to death” of Democrats’ chances to win back the White House. Carville even compared Sanders to the UK’s Jeremy Corbyn, the left-wing leader of the Labour Party, which was decimated during December elections.

“If we go the way of the British Labour Party, if we nominate Jeremy Corbyn, it’s going to be the end of days. … So I am scared to death, I really am,” said the former adviser to President Bill Clinton regarding Sanders’ candidacy, according to Fox News.

Meanwhile, according to a Gallup poll released earlier in the week, a majority of Americans say they would never vote for a socialist for president. Fifty-three percent said they would vote against a socialist candidate, while only 45 percent of respondents in the study indicated they would back one.

The highest ratings in decades

Democrats already faced strong headwinds in the 2020 election: a robust economy, lackluster candidates, and the power of incumbency all of which point to it being likely that President Donald Trump will be re-elected in November. They now have another challenge on their hands: Americans are happier now than when they occupied the White House.

According to Gallup, a record-high number of Americans are happier now than they were during the last year of the previous president. Also, 61% of Americans said they are better off now than they were three years ago. Gallup noted this figure represents “a higher percentage than in prior election years when an incumbent president was running.”

“In the 1992, 1996 and 2004 election cycles, exactly half said they were better off. In three separate measures during the 2012 election cycle, an average of 45% said they were better off,” wrote Gallup analyst Jeffrey Jones.

‘Record high’ satisfaction with personal finances and lives

Gallup also stated that Americans are happier with their personal lives and the state of their finances than in past years, both of which bolster President Trump’s re-election prospects.

Jones noted the poll taken from Jan. 16-29 matches the findings of a previous survey taken earlier last month that showed “record highs” in Americans’ satisfaction with their personal lives and finances.

“Relatedly, 52% of U.S. adults say it is easier for them to ‘go and buy things in the stores’ than it was three years ago,” Jones wrote while noting the figure is significant higher than “in the 1992, 1996 and 2004 election cycles, when the figures were closer to 40%.”

The pollster also highlighted that although perceptions of the state of the country are heavily influenced by party affiliation, a whopping 60% of Independents said they are better off now than they were three years ago — the highest of any recorded finding for the coveted swing voting bloc since 1992.

Americans love the Trump economy

The 61% of Americans who say they are better off now than they were during Barack Obama’s last year in office closely matches President Trump’s approval rating on his handling of the economy.

As Gallup reported earlier in February, 49% of Americans approve of the job the nation’s 45th president is doing in office. The researchers believe Trump’s strong poll numbers are being driven by his handling of the country’s booming economy.

“Americans’ confidence in the economy is higher than at any point in the past two decades,” wrote Jones.

“Sixty-three percent of Americans now approve of the way Trump is handling the economy, up 6 points from the prior reading in November,” he added while noting the economy’s popularity is the highest it has been since the early days of the George W. Bush presidency.

“It is the highest economic approval rating not only for Trump, but for any president since George W. Bush enjoyed stratospheric job approval ratings in the first few months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.”

Impeachment has ‘barely budged’ people’s views about Trump

If House Democrats thought that by impeaching President Donald Trump would politically wound him heading into 2020, a new poll shows they were way off.

According to a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Saturday as the Senate begins concluding the impeachment trial of the president, the number of voters who “strongly approve” of the nation’s 45th commander in chief has hit a “new high.”

Democratic pollster: Attitudes about Trump have ‘barely budged’

As USA Today noted, 46 percent of registered voters told researchers they approved of the job Trump was doing in office, while a little more than half (51 percent) disapproved. The five-point difference between the two is an improvement for Trump from the 10-point (44-54) gap the same pollsters found in December.

“We’ve been through an impeachment inquiry in the House, a trial in the Senate, and America’s attitudes about Donald Trump have hardly budged,” Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt, who conducted the survey with GOP strategist Bill McInturff, said.

In fact, the impeachment process may have even boosted Trump’s numbers. USA Today reported that 36 percent of respondents indicated they “strongly” approved of his performance, the highest number since Trump took office. Additionally, one-third (33 precent) said they had “very positive” feelings about Trump, another high for the president.

Voters do not support removing Trump from office

Additionally, the NBC survey found that a slight plurality of voters favor the Senate acquitting Trump of the Democrats’ impeachment allegations. Even though most respondents said they believe Trump likely abused his power and obstructed Congress, they do not think it rises to the level of meriting impeachment and removal from office.

Forty-nine percent of respondents said the Senate should not vote to remove the president, while 46 percent said it should. This is an improvement for Trump compared to a survey taken at the end of October, while House’s impeachment investigation was underway, when 49 percent said at the time they supported removing Trump from office and 46 percent were opposed.

Meanwhile, Democrats have failed to convince voters that the Senate lacks sufficient evidence to make a decision in its impeachment trial. Thirty-nine percent of respondents told the NBC/WSJ pollsters the Senate has enough information to make a decision, while 37 percent said it needs to collect more data.

Despite the Democrats’ efforts to tarnish Trump’s image, the impeachment effort seems to have failed to move the needle. Fifty-seven percent of voters said the hearings have not changed their view of the president one way or the other, while 16 percent said it made them more confident in Trump and 27 percent less confident in him as president.

Trump is more liked than leading Democrats

Trump also appears to be viewed more favorably than other major political figures the pollsters examined. Forty-three percent of voters said they have a positive image of the president, the highest of any of the politicians with comparable name recognition levels.

A total of 35 percent of respondents said they have a positive image of former vice president Joe Biden while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is viewed favorably by just one-third of voters.

Although he is less known, only a quarter (25 percent) of voters view House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff positively, while 32 percent view him negatively.

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was conducted Jan. 26-29 and interviewed 1,000 registered voters.

The most ‘liked’ Farsi tweet in the history of Twitter

President Donald Trump expressed his solidarity with Iranian protestors calling for the resignation of Ayatollah Khamenei on Saturday.

As he often does, the president took to Twitter to circumvent the media and speak directly to the people. Only this time, he did so in Farsi, the official language in Iran—and broke a Twitter record in the process. As of the writing of this article, one of his tweets had earned over 300,000 “likes,” making it the most “liked” Farsi tweet in history, according to the Washington Examiner.

The other Farsi tweet is at over 223,000 “likes.”

Expert: Tweets are something the media ‘will not report’

The president’s tweets in support of the Iranian people was noticed by Saeed Ghasseminejad, a senior adviser and financial economist at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, who remarked the protests were, “A strong show of support by Iranians for Trump’s Iran policy, something the MSM does not and will not report.”

The nation’s commander in chief also tweeted translations in English of his messages to the Iranian people:

To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I’ve stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage.

In his second Persian tweet, Trump directed his message to the Iranian regime:

The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people. There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching.

On Sunday morning, America’s 45th president warned Iran not to harm its protestors:

Why are Iranians protesting?

As TheBlaze’s Chris Enloe reported, protesters took to the streets of Tehran on Saturday and demanded that Ayatollah Khamenei step down as supreme leader of Iran. The protests come after the Iranian government admitted its armed forces “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian commercial plane, killing all 176 people on board.

In videos posted on social media, protestors can be seen shouting “death to the Islamic Republic,” “death to liars,” and “Soleimani was a murder, his leader is also a murderer.” Reuters also reported the protestors were chanting “death to the dictator,” a direct reference to Khamenei.

Other leaders of the Trump administration have also spoken out in support of the Iranian protestors.

Commenting on Twitter, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Saturday afternoon, “The voice of the Iranian people is clear. They are fed up with the regime’s lies, corruption, ineptitude, and brutality of the IRGC under [Khamenei’s] kleptocracy.”

“We stand with the Iranian people who deserve a better future,” Pompeo added.

Accept your little award…and f*** off!’

British comedian Ricky Gervais tore into Hollywood on Sunday night as the host of the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Gervais told millions of viewers watching around the world that the room filled with A-list actors and corporate moguls, such as Tom Hanks, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Apple CEO Tim Cook, were in no position to lecture the country on politics—or anything else for that matter.

“So, if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award. Thank your agent and your god, and f*** off!”

So-called “woke” corporations were not spared of the comic’s ridicule either as Gervais took aim at the business practices of several entertainment giants.

“…You say you’re woke but the companies you work for…Apple, Amazon, Disney…if ISIS started a streaming service you’d call your agent, wouldn’t you?”

The star of the UK version of the series, “The Office,” even dropped an “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” joke.

“Spoiler alert, season two [of “After Life”] is on the way. So, in the end, he obviously didn’t kill himself. Just like Jeffrey Epstein. Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care.”

You can watch Gervais’ opening monologue below.

This is a developing story and we will continue updating it as the evening progresses.
