Bernie and the Super Delegates: The Fix Is In –Again!

After Hillary Clinton stole the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders in 2016, the party supposedly put “reforms” in place that would prevent such a trick from occurring again. But there’s a new game afoot to prevent Sanders from getting the nomination this time around as well. On-Target’s Larry Sparano explains in this conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Tax The Rich? That’s Un-American!???

The latest polls are apparently showing an increase in support for Elizabeth Warren’s Tax-The-Rich economic plan. She says just a slight increase in taxes for the very wealthy would provide funding for many much-needed and justifiable social programs. Of course, conservative voices are calling that Socialism. Economist Richard Wolff says Warren has the right idea. And he adds that the notion that the rich deserve what they “made on their own” is myth. On-Target’s Larry Sparano discusses that myth with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Biden’s Baggage Too Heavy a Lift?

A number of polls still show Biden comfortably leading Democratic hopefuls in his quest for the nomination. But that may change as opponents highlight more and more the baggage Biden is dragging with him. And it’s not just as Obama’s vice-president As On-Target’s Larry Sparano explains, it stems back to his long career in the Senate.

We begin with Chomsky:

Biden ‘Groping’ –Will it Doom a Presidential Bid?

More stories are coming out about Joe Biden’s long-rumored groping of women.  Women’s rights advocates say it’s not a matter of what men intend  –It’s a matter of how it’s perceived. But how can men figure out just what is and isn’t deemed appropriate in this day and age of hyper-sensitivity?  Here’s some thoughts from On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Two Separate Reports: Racial Graffiti/Biden’s Baggage

We have two reports for you today:  First, a story about why a black family decided not to cover up racial graffiti scrawled on their house.  Second, a separate report on what political baggage Joe Biden will drag with him if he decides to enter the 2020 presidential race.  Both conversation are between On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Could Sanders Win in 2020? Don’t Write Him Off Just Yet

There is Increasing speculation about Bernie Sander’s chances of beating Trump in 2020.  While cynics were quick to dismiss his prospects following his announcement last week that he was running, some reassessment is already under way.  On-Target’s Larry Sparano says such second thoughts are valid, considering what the polls said about a Sanders-Trump match up, before  Hillary Clinton used the Superdelegates to snatch the nomination away from Sanders.
