Sanders is out to lunch on economics, but we don’t think of him as conniving, which stands in contrast to most of the jackals in the Senate.
The Hillary crew resented the old man. They didn’t respect him and they couldn’t believe that he’d dare challenge the anointed one. But he challenged, and in a fair fight he might have won.
This is an interesting article because it hints of the tectonic shifts going on in the electorate. Some shifts, like Pennsylvania going Republican are obvious. Others are much more subtle, the result of quiet movements in political magma bubbling under the surface.
In the attached article, Politico (being Politico) makes sure to trot out the already tired memes of Tumptist racism. The article also perpetuates the “Steve Bannon is a ‘white nationalist’” bit. (Which for the record,
It certainly was a very important factor.
Everyone should have a summer home. In fact everyone should have a $600,000 summer home on Lake Champlain. Anything else would be unfair.
Somewhere along the way the “official” media sources got the official line. – Focus on an assertion by John Podesta Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, who has his own ties to the Russians, that the Russians are behind exposing that the Democratic National Committee was working on behalf of Hillary Clinton in the primary process and against Bernie Sanders.
No one in the government to our knowledge has confirmed this assertion. But even still, where the leak came from is not the issue.
Oh, youth and optimism. You will soon feel the power of the SUPER DELEGATES. Ha ha ha!
And these are the registered lobbyists. I am sure plenty aren’t registered. Bernie never really had a chance.
The video below is reflective of a theme which has run through this week, “The Revolution Won’t Be Televised.”
The official version of the Dem convention on the mainstream media outlets and the version we see actually coming from the people on the ground at the convention are very different.
Another great report from a citizen journalist.
This was from the previous night.
ACC is a completely non-partisan organization.
I mean, who do these heathens think they are? I am the head of the DNC dammit! I’m supposed to be Speaker of the House one day. Don’t they get it? These people are almost as bad as Trump people.
Bernie did surrender. As we said before, the collectivist, unionish tendency in the Democratic Party is strong. Those who break from the herd are quickly rejected. If you don’t stay shoulder to shoulder the herd doesn’t want you. You will be exiled. Bernie didn’t want to be exiled. And he didn’t want a challenge for his Senate seat either. So Bernie looked around and decided he didn’t want to leave the herd after all. He bowed his head and fell back in formation.
One thing about America’s “Left” wing party is that it knows the power of the union and it knows the power of the union boss. One way or another you will comply. You will NOT think for yourself. You will NOT think independently. You WILL fall in line. Don’t even think, think of doing anything other than what we have told you.
Sanders, for all of his frankly destructive economic ideas was a breath of fresh air.
This story is not entirely an indictment of Sanders. Better the unemployed fund the guy’s campaign than Goldman Sachs or Monsanto. (Seriously.) Still it isn’t exactly a good sign either. Many of the folks sending money are receiving that money first via government, taxpayer funded programs. They presumably give with the hope that Bernie will expand government, taxpayer funded programs. That’s not really progress. Though regular welfare is slightly better than corporate welfare, which more than rivals regular welfare in cost to taxpayers,
