Bernie Sanders Voted America’s Most Popular Senator For The Second Year In A Row
Bernie Sanders may be second in the Democratic primary, but he is number one regarding Senate popularity. For the second year in a row, Sen. Sanders has been voted the most popular Senator in the United States.
Morning Consult surveyed 62,000 people across all 50 states to find out how they felt about their Senators. The winner with an 80% approval rating among Vermont residents was Sen. Bernie Sanders. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine was second with a 79% approval ratings. Sanders actually saw his approval rating in Vermont dip by three points from his 2015 high of 83%, but back to back wins in 2015 and 2016 prove that the Senator’s popularity is no fluke.
Here is the entire top 10 list of most popular Senators from Morning Consult:
1) Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
2) Susan Collins (R-Maine)
3) John Hoeven (R-N.D.)
4) Angus King (I-Maine)
5) Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)
6) Thomas Carper (D-Del.)
7) Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)
8) John Barrasso (R-Wyo.)
9) Al Franken (D-Minn.)
10) Chris Coons (D-Del.)

There is a common trend in the top 10. Small state Senators are more popular than large state Senators. This could be because residents of smaller states have more individual contact with their Senators than those who live in more populous states. 
Bernie Sanders is not going to win the Democratic nomination, but his presidential campaign has been nothing but a raging success. He has taken his popularity in Vermont national. Bernie Sanders is the most powerful figure on the left not named Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. The political revolution is not over for Sanders his supporters. 
The most popular Senator in the United States now has a national movement of millions behind him who are fighting to transform America.

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
