Today is Feb 26, I am Dennis Michael Lynch, and the stories below are making headlines this morning.
1-Sanders pummeled on communism, spending at SC debate
Bernie Sanders faced sustained attacks from all sides in Tuesday night’s rowdy Democratic presidential debate, as the self-described democratic socialist, now the race’s undisputed front-runner, tried to ward off multiple claims that his sweeping plans were little more than an expensive path to a “catastrophic” rout of vulnerable Democrats come November.
The event in Charleston, S.C., coming ahead of Saturday’s South Carolina primary and next week’s game-changing Super Tuesday contests, surpassed last week’s debate in Las Vegas as the most contentious of the primary season to date, as candidates frequently sparred with the moderators and ripped into each other.

2-San Francisco declares state of emergency over coronavirus
The mayor of San Francisco declared a state of emergency over coronavirus fears on Tuesday shortly after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a warning that the U.S. will likely see more cases.
There are 57 known cases in the U.S. and no cases in San Francisco, but Mayor London Breed pointed to the virus’ unpredictability and troubling global growth. “We see the virus spreading in new parts of the world every day, and we are taking the necessary steps to protect San Franciscans from harm,” Breed said. She said many of the city’s residents travel to mainland China, so it is not far-fetched to suspect cases in the future.
San Francisco’s announcement came as the military announced Tuesday that a U.S. soldier stationed in South Korea had tested positive for coronavirus and was in self-quarantine at his residence off base. He was the first U.S. service member to become infected.
DML: I’ve been saying for how long that “it’s coming here,” well, just ask the stock market which has nosedived two days in a row now: IT IS HERE.
3-Disney’s Bob Iger steps down as CEO
The Walt Disney Company announced Tuesday that Bob Iger will be stepping down as its chief executive officer (CEO) effective immediately, but will remain executive chairman of the company through 2021. Bob Chapek, who served as the chairman of Disney Parks, will assume Iger’s role as CEO.
DML: Bernie Sanders was planning for Mickey Mouse to be named CEO, and therefore everyone would go to the parks for free. Oh well, maybe next election.
4- Omar slayed on Twitter by contender
One of at least eight candidates aiming to unseat U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., gave a brief reply this week after Omar posted six ways that she identifies herself. None of the descriptions mentioned anything about her status as a citizen of this country.
“I am an American,” wrote Republican Dalia al-Aqidi, a former Iraqi refugee who hopes to replace Omar in representing Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District.
“That’s why I’m running for Congress,” al-Aqidi added.
DML: Read Ilhan’s tweet…
I am an American 🇺🇸
