Bernie Sanders is refusing to answer any questions about the ‘brew ha ha’ over his militant supporters attacks on the Culinary Union members. This will be an ongoing story, but as of today, this is where we’re at.
Nevada Independent-The politically powerful Culinary Union is punching back at supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who have lashed out at the union after it began distributing a one-pager to members warning that the Democratic presidential hopeful would “end Culinary Healthcare” if elected president.
Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Arguello-Kline said in a statement Wednesday that Sanders supporters have “viciously attacked” the union since it began distributing a one-pager to union members that takes specific aim at the Vermont senator over his Medicare-for-all policy. The Culinary Union, which provides insurance to 130,000 of its members and their families through a special kind of union health trust, strongly opposes the creation of a single-payer, government-run health insurance system on the grounds that it would eliminate their health plan.
In distributing the flyer, the union was trying to provide “facts on what certain healthcare proposals might do to take away the system of care we have built over 8 decades,” Arguello-Kline said. “We have always stood up for what we believe in and will continue to do so.”
She also noted that the union invited Sanders to its headquarters for a town hall and took him on tours of its 60,000-square-foot state of the art Culinary Health Center and the Culinary Academy of Las Vegas, a training facility for hospitality workers in North Las Vegas “to show what we have fought for and won.”
“The Culinary Union has faced some of the toughest companies who wanted to break our union, and even the President of the United States Donald Trump – and won,” she said.
Since news of the flyer broke on Tuesday night, the Culinary Union has faced attacks in the form of tweets, phone calls and emails, a union spokeswoman said.
On Twitter, the union has been derided, among other things, as “corrupt,” “incompetent” and “operating in bad faith.” The spokeswoman said the content of the phone calls and emails has largely been the same.
A spokeswoman for the Sanders campaign declined to comment Wednesday afternoon.
Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers and a member of the AFL-CIO, chimed in on Twitter in support of the union.
The 60,000-member hotel workers’ union, an organizing powerhouse in the state known for turning the tides in close races, has yet to announce whether it will endorse ahead of the Democratic presidential caucus in Nevada on Feb. 22. However, the flyer appears to be part of a coordinated campaign by the union to insert itself into the race — with or without an endorsement.
According to the flyer, Sanders would “end Culinary Healthcare,” “require ‘Medicare For All,’” and “lower drug prices” if elected president. It uses much softer language to describe Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Medicare for all plan, which the union says would “replace Culinary Healthcare after 3-year transition or at end of collective bargaining agreements.”
The Culinary Union has repeatedly stressed that it believes that health care is a right, just not at the expense of the union’s gold-standard health plan, considered some of the best insurance in the state.
“Our union believes that everyone has the right to good healthcare and that healthcare should be a right, not a privilege,” Arguello-Kline said. “We have already enacted a vision for what working people need — and it exists now. Workers should have the right to choose to keep the healthcare Culinary Union members have built, sacrificed for, and went on strike for 6 years, 4 months, and 10 days to protect.”
Whether Sanders succeeds as the Democrat nominee remains to be seen, but what is undeniable is the radical left turn the majority of the Democrat party has taken. Buttigieg’s father was a devout Marxist. Buttigieg claims to be a moderate that can bring the party together, but nothing could be further from the truth. An essay he won a prize for was discovered where he praises Bernie Sanders and his Communist philosophy. Warren is just a liar with no idea of what she truly believes. Tulsi Gabbard is a Sanders devotee. Mini Mike changes his views depending on how the wind blows. And in Congress we all know who the true Speaker of The House is_AOC. I’m a regular on social media, and I hear regularly, “We need to vote AOC and The Squad out.” I agree, but the reason that won’t happen is because of their constituency. What we need is someone in Congress who is willing to stand up to them. No current member of Congress is willing to do so because they’re afraid of being called a racist. Enter…Laura Loomer for Congress. She’s gone after them an investigative journalist, and she’s now running for Congress to counter this growing surge of jihadists and communists in office. She’s supported by big names like Judge Jeanine, the Limbaugh team, Michelle Malkin, Roger Stone, Brandon Straka, and many more because of her willingness to go after these people.

Jewish journalist, Laura Loomer, made her name investigating corrupt politicians such as the Clintons, James Comey, Mad Max, and many others. She was the first reporter to investigate Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib before they were elected. She was deplatformed from Twitter for a post she made stating that Ilhan Omar was anti- Jew and pro Sharia. CAIR (Hamas) lobbied Twitter to remove her. Because a group of Saudi investors own a large chunk of Twitter stock, Loomer was booted from the platform. Facebook and Instagram did the same several months later. Loomer attempted to fight back, but the MSM and RINO’s were to PC to help her out. Michelle Malkin remained in support of her and called out the MSM. Loomer realized if she was going to effect change in this country, she would have to run for Congress to take the swamp head on. She announced a run for Congress last August in President Trump’s home district. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
Loomer has filed lawsuits against Big Tech for bias against conservatives, monopolistic behavior through anti-trust, and election interference as they refuse to let her back on social media even as a candidate. Some might say, ‘This doesn’t affect me,’ but I’d say you’re wrong. Another post of mine is about a long term police officer in Florida who got suspended for ‘liking’ a post of his wife’s on Facebook that criticized Omar and Tlaib. Loomer has been suspended from more than just social media for being outspoked. She’s banned from Uber, Uber Eats, Lyft, PayPal, Venmo, GoFundMe, medium and several others. She also had her bank account at Chase Banks temporarily closed down. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
On 12/28/19, President Trump retweeted a tweet of mine in support of her. This week he’s renting her emails out for fundraising. We’re hopeful that a full fledged endorsement is coming soon as he’s been taking incremental steps. Judge Jeanine, Michelle Malkin, Brandon Straka, Roger Stone, and the Limbaugh teams have endorsed her because of her relentless pursuit of the truth. If you want to help her, please donate anything you can afford. Small amounts are welcome and add up.
