Index: Bernie Sanders and the 2016 Primary

My very first post related to Bernie Sanders was a plea to Democrats. We have to defeat Sanders, I insisted. I detailed how my call violated the “Vote Blue No Matter Who” meme. I discussed the ugliness of his campaign, the potential for infiltration in his camp by hostile forces and concluded with this sentiment.

As far as I’m concerned, the Unite Blue strategy is a hoax. We are wasting valuable time in our politeness. And while we preserve this false unity, our opponent is gathering strength. We cannot afford to play nice.

That was January 2016. Over the next year or so, I continued to record the development of the Sanders campaign, morphing from Unite Blue to Bernie Or Bust, engaging in nasty tricks and division, lawsuits and hate. I wrote thousands of words, tracking the blot and smear of its existence. Continue reading “Index: Bernie Sanders and the 2016 Primary”

Democrats Create History in U.S. House Sit-In

Dems sit-in

Now in its third hour, the Democrats Representatives of the U.S. House are engaging in an old tactic – a sit-in – in a historic move to force the GOP-controlled body to bring common sense gun bills to the floor for a vote.

Speaker Paul Ryan cut the CSPAN camera feed as the civil disobedience started. However, a few enterprising Democrats shared views via Periscope.

Here’s how it started. Civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis delivered a passionate address to the body.

 

The sit-in commenced. Four hours later, and no CSPAN coverage permitted by Speaker Ryan, Periscope came to the rescue. This medium set-up a channel to follow this precedent setting, collective civil disobedience.

The sit-in is now seven hours long.

House Speaker Ryan went on national TV and called it a “publicity stunt.”

National media organizations, those watchdogs who dare to enter the bloodied landscapes of foreign countries devastated by war, have lost all courage. Should Americans call on Reporters Without Borders to life th GOP-imposed blackout? Ponder that. Meanwhile…

The Media Awakens and Discovers: Trump’s $40 Million Loan-Funded Campaign

After 12 months of nonstop jibber-jabber and complicit promotion of Donald J. Trump, the media of this country have suddenly jerked awake. What startled the behemoth of talking heads? Why, it’s that the Donald’s campaign is dramatically lean. So lean that some have compared it to a fund-raiser for a Congressional job rather than the office of the President.

Bernie – The Candidate Un-Americans Love

 

American voters need a clear understanding of what is happening here. An American citizen identified as a Democratic Socialist and running for the office of the President, is blatantly flaunting all federal election prohibitions. He is collecting money from citizens of other countries, allowing party members of other governments to actively work in his campaign and openly seeking the support of other heads of state in his run – all illegal practices that seek to circumvent the will of the people in selecting their U.S. President. This unprecedented abuse of the election system should send chills down your spine.

I wrote that two months ago in a post that detailed non-American activity and influence in Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. The mainstream media has neglected this continuous abuse of campaign finance, and perhaps this is part of the reason the infractions continue.
