As reported by The Washington Post, Sanders, the runner-up in Democrat primaries, “has told associates that Biden is at serious risk of coming up short in the November election if he continues his vaguer, more centrist approach, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive talks.”

Sanders is privately expressing concerns, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, and has identified several specific changes he’d like to see Biden make, including more focus on health care, his economic plan, and campaigning more with “figures popular among young liberals, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.)”.

Is this the time when we tell Bernie that Joe can’t even answer a question from his teleprompter without reading the instructions from his staff as part of his answer?

While we’re at it, maybe we should also tell Bernie that Biden disagrees with him on “Medicare for All,” the Democrats’ lipstick-on-a-pig name for single-payer government-controlled health care.

Biden has also distanced himself from those in his party — see: AOC — calling for defunding the police, trade, infrastructure, manufacturing, and banning fracking — which Sanders supports.

When Sanders’s team was asked to comment on the report, they provided a statement from Faiz Shakir, Bernie’s campaign manager during the Democrat presidential race, who insisted Bernie is confident Biden will win, but…

“Senator Sanders is confident that Joe Biden is in a very strong position to win this election, but nevertheless feels there are areas the campaign can continue to improve upon.

“He has been in direct contact with the Biden team and has urged them to put more emphasis on how they will raise wages, create millions of good paying jobs, lower the cost of prescription drugs and expand health care coverage.”

Shakir said that while Sanders is “working as hard as he can” to help elect Biden, he “also thinks that a stronger outreach to young people, the Latino community and the progressive movement will be of real help to the campaign.”

Therein lies the problem for Biden. The “stronger outreach to the progressive movement” part.

Historically, Democrat presidential candidates run to the Left during the primaries, then tack to the right, to the extent they can get away it, during the general election campaign. This puts Biden between a rock and a hard place. Bigly.

On one hand, “Democratic Socialists” Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — along with their scads of loyal followers — want to pull Biden as far to the Left as they possibly can.

On the other hand, Team Biden knows that even the perception of Biden adopting a more “progressive agenda” plays directly into the hand of Donald Trump, who is primed and ready to skewer him over every “progressive” move.

As a result, the question the Biden campaign must ask itself, and answer quickly, is whether they believe Biden stands to pick up more votes if he tacks to the Left, or lose more moderate voters to Trump by doing so.

Speaking of Trump, during an address to the virtual Democrat Convention in August, Sanders declared that the President is leading America towards authoritarianism.

While Bernie Sanders focuses on policy changes he’d like to see Biden make, more progressive positions he prefers Biden would adopt, the overriding question facing Joe Biden is whether he’s mentally fit to serve as president of the United States.

Most recently, as reported on Saturday by my RedState colleague Nick Arama, Biden was busted — again — for using a teleprompter during an interview.

Arthur Schwartz, an informal adviser to Donald Trump Jr. called out the media — principally CNN — on Saturday in response to a tweet from GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest about Biden being busted for using a teleprompter during an interview with James Corden:

“I don’t want to hear another damn word from Stelter, Tapper, Rucker et al. about the critical role they play as guardians of our democracy. They need to start asking Biden some legit questions or they need to sit down & shut their mouths.”

The bottom line.

Clearly, Joe Biden is in a rough spot, varying poll results aside. What happens when he squares off against Trump in three presidential debates? He will be without his trusty teleprompter. There will be no one whispering answers in his ear. Wife Jill will not be sitting beside him ready to rescue him from himself. It will be all Joe.

Those are the real reasons Bernie Sanders and the Democrat Party should be scared to death about Joe Biden.

Can’t make it up. Don’t have to. Particularly when it comes to the deranged actions of the pretend-to-care-about-George-Floyd Antifa rioters, who continue to hold cities like Portland, Oregon, under siege, night after night.

On today’s episode of “Adventures with Antifa,” this clown in Washington, D.C., lectured a first-generation African-American immigrant doctor about how much more “black” he is than she is. “On the inside,” that is. Spoiler: the doc’s clapback was perfect.

“You’re betraying Black Lives Matters,” the activist screamed, as the unidentified doctor reminded him of the obvious, shrugging her shoulders and saying, “You’re white.”

Au contraire, according to the BLM protester. “You’re not black on the inside — I’m more black than you on the inside.” As the doc continued to blow him off, the “protester” dialed it back, a bit, telling her, “You’re on the wrong side of history, ma’am, you’re my sister.”

Visions of Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King?

Anyway, the activist and his pals were in D.C. to disrupt the“ White Coat Summit” on Capitol Hill, which was scheduled to be a two-day event. Sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots, it began on Monday.

As reported by RealClear Politics, Facebook and YouTube censored a video from the event, which featured “America’s Frontline Doctors” calling out a “massive disinformation campaign” on the treatment of the coronavirus.

From the steps of the US Supreme Court, a group of doctors calling themselves “America’s Frontline Doctors,” are speaking out as physicians from around the country, addressing the American people about COVID-19 and what they are calling a “massive disinformation campaign” as COVID-19 is keeping businesses closed and schools planning to remain closed this coming September. The event is being widely recognized as the “White Coat Summit” on Capitol Hill which is scheduled to be a two-day event. It took place today, July 27, 2020.

In the video, a pediatrician named Dr. Robert Hamilton claimed that children are not transmitting the coronavirus and it is safe to send them back to school in the fall. Hamilton said, “we need to not act out of fear, but we need to act out of science.”

Both Facebook and Breitbart News initially live-streamed the event, but the video was ultimately taken down after accumulating 17 million views within hours.

Setting aside the controversy over whether or not schools should reopen in the fall, and everything else virus-related, this confrontation points to the obvious.

The continuing actions of the left-wing activists — many of whom most likely couldn’t care less about George Floyd — demonstrates the reality of Antifa and Antifa-inspired wannabes. They are singularly focused on destroying America as we know it, and replacing it with God knows what.

Back to the video. Donald Trump Jr. was temporarily suspended by Twitter on Tuesday for tweeting out part of the video in which medical professionals talked about the positive effects of Hydroxychloroquine.

Black on the inside, outside, both, or neither, the events of 2020 should cause all rational Americans to take pause. Troubling times, indeed.
