Exclusive: Bernie Sanders Would Continue Drone Killings

Skewed News —  If elected president, Bernie Sanders would use drones to assassinate people overseas, albeit on a reduced scale. The issue of targeted assassinations came up during my interview with the presidential contender, whose surging poll numbers pose an increasing threat to Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. “I think I would limit [President Obama’s […]

Skewed News —  In a noble move marked by patriotism and self-sacrifice in service to the American people, Scott Walker is dropping out of the 2016 presidential campaign. Walker, the right-wing Republican who drew national attention by targeting unions representing state workers and surviving a recall campaign mounted by outraged supporters of labor, appears to have undergone a radical political […]
