Rising Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren vowed to promote “Economic Patriotism” in a new campaign ad this week; proposing the creation of a “Department of Economic Development” to regulate large corporations.
“A lot of giant companies refer to themselves as ‘American.’ But let’s face it, they only have one real loyalty: Their shareholders. A Warren administration will halt the hollowing out of American cities and create good American jobs. Here’s how,” she posted on social media.

“They have no loyalty or allegiance to America. Levi’s blue jeans? Only two percent of their factories are here in America,” Warren said. “The maker of the famous No.2 pencil — they make most of those pencils in China and Mexico. And General Electric — they recently shipped jobs from Wisconsin, across the border to Canada.”
“If they can close up an American factory and ship jobs overseas to save a nickel, that is exactly what they’ll do,” she continued. “In a Warren administration, government policy will support American workers. I call it ‘Economic Patriotism.'”
“This new agency will have a single mission,” she added, referring to the Department of Economic Development. “Defend and create American jobs. And we’ll direct the new agency to use aggressive new tools… [and] we’ll use them to boost American workers.”

BERNIE’S BAD MEMORY: Sanders Says He’s ‘Spent His Whole Life’ Fighting Against the Soviet Union
Vermont Senator and 2020 Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders raised eyebrows across the country over the weekend; saying he’s “spent his whole life” fighting against authoritarian regimes like the Soviet Union and Venezuela.
“I have spent my whole life fighting for democracy, fighting against authoritarianism, whether the Soviet Union, Venezuela or anyplace else,” claimed Sanders during a recent interview.

The self-described Democratic Socialist has been caught on tape publicly praising the Soviet Union and Cuba following his “honeymoon” to the communist nation in the late 1980s.
Undated Footage of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared online weeks ago; showing the potential 2020 presidential nominee praising the Soviet Union for its public transportation, youth programs, and more.

“When we were in Moscow, we were extremely impressed by their public transportation system. The stations themselves were absolutely beautiful… It was a very, very effective system,” said Bernie.
“Also, I was impressed by the youth programs that they have. Their Palaces of Culture for the young people, a whole variety of programs for the young people, and cultural programs that go far beyond what we do in this country,” he added.
Sanders changed his tune in recent weeks after announcing his run for the White House.
“Obviously, Soviet Union was an authoritarian society with no democratic rights, and I think if you know history, you know the democratic socialists fought and stood up against that,” the 2020 Democratic hopeful said.
“You can look at what existed in the Soviet Union or Venezuela, that is not what I’m talking about at all,” he added.
“If what you say in life is, ‘all I want to do is as much money as I possibly can and screw everything else, I don’t give a damn,’ then no, I don’t think democratic socialism is your cup of tea,” he said.
“But if you have a decent heart and say ‘look, I’m doing really well, but I also want to be a contributor to the wellbeing of society, so I’m going to pay my fair share of taxes.’”
A new poll released last month shows a whopping 43% of Americans think “socialism” would be a “good thing” for America.
“Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion,” reports Gallup.
The surprising survey comes as countless Democratic presidential candidates -such as Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, and others- press for massive federal spending programs like Medicare for All.
LAND OF THE FREE: New Poll Shows 57% Think ‘Socialism’ is ‘Incompatible’ with American Values
A new poll released by Monmouth University this week is throwing more cold-water on Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ far-left agenda; showing more than 57% think “socialism” is “not compatible” with American values.
“The Monmouth University poll released Monday found that 57% of respondents believe socialism is not ‘compatible’ with American values, with 40% being emphatically negative about the economic system,” reports the Daily Caller.
“Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country,” said the President during his 2019 State of the Union address to both Houses of Congress.
The survey comes as leading Democrats -including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Beto O’Rourke, Elizabeth Warren, and more- call for new socialist policies heading into the 2020 race for the White House.
