An important narrative in Elizabeth Warren's presidential campaign is that she lost a teaching job early in her career because she was pregnant. Yet that narrative has been largely-debunked by Warren's own words in a 2007 interview, and through records obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and others.

The Democratic Socialists of America provide considerable energy for Democrat candidates. The label Democratic Socialist is embraced by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, among others. The DSA just held its annual conference, and it was pretty much what you would expect when 1000 socialists got together -- it devolved at times into self-parody.

Newly-elected Denver city councilwoman Candi CdeBaca (D-CO) is making waves with her comments about our being in "late phase capitalism" and her strong belief in the "community ownership of land, labor, resources, and distribution of those resources."  She's so fervent in her belief that she goes on to say "I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary."

2020 presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) released 10 years of his tax returns right before he participated in a town hall with Fox News. It turns out the self-proclaimed socialist belongs to the 1% his side hates. The returns also show that he donated little to charity despite making a ton of money.

Last week, Twitter locked Luke Thompson's account after he divulged public information of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's boyfriend Riley Roberts. her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti joined in and next thing you know...trolls galore. Thompson had a legitimate question: Why does Riley have a email address? Since he had time on his hands with his suspension, Thompson did some digging and found the story goes deeper than he thought.
