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.

THE DARK HORSE: Why The #RussiaGate Investigation Must Start With Bernie Sanders

The historic inquiry into Russia’s interference in our presidential election by the House Intelligence Committee opened with a statement from Rep. Adam Schiff. His introduction was concise, detailed and chilling. He named names. Gave dates. Showed correlations. Painted a scenario of unsustainable “coincidences” in a dark intrigue peopled by Russian hackers, oligarchs, oil magnates, diplomats, spies – orchestrated by Putin and counterbalanced with his alleged American agents.

It is a sequence of events and characters fit for an explosive novel. It is the foundation for impeachment proceedings against the current U.S. President.

But missing from that cast of saboteurs and accessories is one name: Senator Bernie Sanders. Continue reading “THE DARK HORSE: Why The #RussiaGate Investigation Must Start With Bernie Sanders”

Bye Bye Big Money: Sanders Campaign Sees $20M Drop in Contributions


If there’s any sure way to mark the end of a campaign, it’s when the money stops flowing.

Back on April 19th when Hillary Clinton won New York, pundits said the primary race was over. She further entrenched her lead the following week with wins in four successive states (Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Connecticut).

Yet her opponent hung in there, refusing to concede or suspend or to many, face reality.
