Bernie Sanders!

Recommended Posts

I hope this is punk revival number one and not that it took ten years for punk to reach Burlington.

Punks at the mall. Funny video.

"Fascinating dynamic at Shaheen Dinner:
Warren supporters cheering for every candidate,
standing for Buttigieg, Biden, and Klobuchar.
 
Sanders camp sits silently.
 
Reminder: after this, there must be unity."
 
My comment is that this is indicative of how likely the Sanders camp is to NOT vote for the Dem nominee if it is not Sanders.  Just as many did in 2016, thereby electing Trump to the presidency.

Remember, Trump used to be a Democrat.  Regardless he has always been an opportunist.

I kid you not. On MSNBC, they just announced that

has taken a BIG lead in New Hampshire,

but the panelists then started saying that even though he’s in 1st,

that if you add up Pete and Amy together that they are in 1st.

That’s actually NOT how elections work.

:rolleyes:  <_<

I thought the same thing yesterday to show that there are a sizable number of voters who do not want Sanders' Socialism.  Of course, to be fair you should probably add Sanders and Warren totals compared to Buttigieg and Klobuchar totals.  Then add Bidens to B and K's. 

By my math that shows 156,174 for moderates and 103,174 for socialists.

And in Nov, it will essentially be a two person race.

One of Sanders failures in Iowa was that with all the people and money he had in Iowa, he did NOT grow the voter turnout for himself.  He will turn off more voters in Nov, than the DNC can ever bring to the party.

Heard this yesterday on MSNBC but I find the data point mentioned misleading;  in 2016 there were only 2 candidates running,  Clinton and Sanders.     (well 3 if one counts O'Malley who got zero delegates, compared to the over 20 received by the other two).

In 2020 if there were only two viable candidates running,  say Sanders and one of the other "moderates",    I believe Sanders would have grown his voter turnout.

It is happening again to Crazy Bernie, just like last time, only far more obvious. They are taking the Democrat Nomination away from him, and there’s very little he can do. A Rigged System!

Here’s the very obvious game
@realDonaldTrump in playing:
 
Drive a wedge among Dems if
@BernieSanders isn’t nominated.
 
& Destroy Bernie as a dangerous socialist / Communist if he is.

Joe Biden calls out Bernie Sanders supporters for their vicious social media attacks then encourages everyone to go online and read them for themselves.

Is that really a good idea?  :unsure:

Sanders Condemns Any Russian Influence in Election

Sanders said "Unlike Donald Trump, I do not consider Vladimir Putin a good friend"

....... “Unlike Donald Trump, I do not consider Vladimir Putin a good friend. He is an autocratic thug who is attempting to destroy democracy and crush dissent in Russia. Let’s be clear, the Russians want to undermine American democracy by dividing us up and, unlike the current president, I stand firmly against their efforts, and any other foreign power that wants to interfere in our election.”......

Thank you. This reflects my thoughts as well.

If by some miracle Sanders gets elected, he will never get either house of Congress to agree to what he wants.  In his long, long career in the US House and Senate he has been pretty much ineffectual at accomplishing anything.  He would be ignored as president.  His vetoes would be over ridden with ease.  Any executive orders or actions would immediately be challenged in court and eventually overturned.  Very few of his nominations would get approved in the Senate.

While a lot of people apparently support him, as Chomsky pointed out Congress is based on people elected from states and districts who are attuned to the people in those districts and states.  A majority of the elected representatives and senators come from states and districts that are opposed to all Sanders' stands for.

Another factor I foresee is that Sanders' election would cause another Great Recession (2008).  Wall Street, Main Street and industries would just shut down waiting to see what happened.  They would eliminate employees and benefits and entire facilities to prepare for the anticipated economic downturn with Sanders in the White House.  Economic growth would decline and unemployment would go up dramatically.

Same thing would happen with a Warren election, but she is a little better at working with Congress.

I don't see how Sanders vetoes would be over ridden with ease.    That implies enough Dems and Gopers in the House and Senate could get to 2\3 and I don't see that happening  expect in a few,  very select cases (regardless of who is President).

Sen Sanders, after a report that officials have told the Democratic presidential candidate that Russia was trying to help his campaign:
 
"My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections,
and as president I will make sure that you do.”
=======================================
 
 
 
President Trump dismissed intelligence reports that Russia is attempting to interfere in the 2020 election,
 
writing it off without evidence as a continuation of a Democratic “disinformation” campaign against him.
