In 1991, the year I was born, my family was fleeing a civil war in Somalia. @BernieSanders was on the House floor railing against income inequality and another false war. Consistency & Character matters.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that anyone who criticizes the Democratic Party, the DNC or US foreign policy (as supported by the CIA/NSA) is instantly, and for that reason alone, viewed as an agent of Moscow. They don’t even hide their McCarthyism: it’s the explicit formula:

This NYT article is so perfect: it’s the exact formula used by DNC-friendly media to smear anyone who it views as adversary: scream RUSSIA & NAZI over & over – no matter what the person’s views are – and your work is done. Look at Tulsi’s views which make her a FSB agent & Nazi:

As if to prove my point, NYT just published a “greatest hits” smear piece. All your favorite hits in one article! These are the folks who will be acting as the “neutral” questioners/moderators of Tuesday’s debate lol

What, Exactly, Is Tulsi Gabbard Up To?

She is now injecting a bit of chaos into her own party’s primary race, threatening to boycott that debate to protest what she sees as a “rigging” of the 2020 election. That’s left some Democrats wondering what, exactly, she is up to in the race, while others worry about supportive signs from online bot activity and the Russian news media.

Perhaps strangest of all is the unusual array of Americans who cannot seem to get enough of her.

The DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process

The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders.

In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.

They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten.

Sanders on difference with Warren: she’s a capitalist ‚I’m not‘

„There are differences between Elizabeth and myself,“ Sanders said, referring to Warren. „Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist through her bones. I’m not.”

„I am, I believe, the only candidate who’s going to say to the ruling class of this country, ‚Enough. Enough with your greed, and with your corruption. We need real change in this country,‘ “ Sanders added.

Ecuador’s Conaie Releases Policemen After Leader’s Funeral

The group released the officers on Thursday evening after the funeral of leader Inocencio Tucumbi, who was killed on Wednesday during protests.

The Conaie leaders made the four officers carry the coffin because, according to the Indigenous justice system, they represented the violent repression that forced Tucumbi to become a victim of the week’s protests.

The officers were handed over to representatives of the United Nations in Ecuador.

Ecuador: Riot Police Fire Tear Gas, Live Ammo at Protesters

Ecuadorean social scientist, Aquiles Hervas, said over social media from the scene: “We have just witnessed a vile betrayal. [Authorities] accepted the crowd’s arrival outside the assembly in order to talk shortly after the president’s announcement. Once they had approached [the building], the police fired at close range while people were eating soup. Several children were trampled by the terrified crowd. It is a war scene with unarmed people, several were injured.”

Video capturing the attacks show hundreds of people running eastward from the assembly, trying to escape the tear gas grenades and armored vehicles.

„Let’s sit down to talk, let’s sit down and talk about decree 883, let’s talk about where your resources should go, and make sure they go to those who need it most,“ Moreno said in a 20 second message to the nation at 3:00 p.m. local time.

Ecuador Protests Enter 7th Day Against Pro-IMF Economic Reforms

In Quito, the capital city, streets remained empty only a few hours before dawn, while the Indigenous activists slept at college campuses where „solidarity camps“ were set up to host them.

For seven days in a row, Ecuadoreans are protesting against policies seeking fiscal austerity, labor liberalization, dismissal of workers and income reduction. Unlike what the private media are holding, the fight is not just against fuel price hikes. It never was. ​​​​​

CVA on 18 years of US engagement in Afghanistan

As of today, American troops have been engaged in Afghanistan for 18 years—America’s longest war ever. This means today’s recruits may be sent to fight in a war that started before they were even born, and many of those currently deployed are likely too young to remember the events of 9/11.

There’s no question we were justified in responding to those attacks, and the men and women who have been sent to Afghanistan have served honorably. But our continued involvement in the region does not serve American interests and only works to destabilize the region further. After nearly two decades of fighting, thousands of lives lost, and trillions of taxpayer dollars spent, it is past time to bring our troops home.

Was will die Protestbewegung in Hongkong erreichen?

Um die Antwort gleich vorwegzunehmen: Ich weiß es nicht, aber, noch schlimmer: die Protestler, die täglich auf die Straße gehen, wissen es selber nicht. Im dem Übergabevertrag von 1997 wurde zwischen der ehemaligen Kolonialmacht Großbritannien und der Volksrepublik China unter der Formel „Ein Land, zwei Systeme“, vereinbart, dass China die Hoheit über Hongkong zwar zurückerhalten sollte, das kapitalistische System aber wie gehabt noch weitere 50 Jahre, bis 2047, bestehen bleibt. Beide Seiten hatten wohl ihre eigenen Vorstellungen davon, wie die Zeit bis 2047 genutzt werden sollte.

Short answer: She didn’t qualify.

Slightly longer answer: She needed 2 percent support in four of the polls that the Democratic National Committee counted toward debate qualification.
