Who remembers Joe Biden wanting to bomb Serbia?

13.05.2020 - 14:03 [ Glenn Greenwald / Twitter ]

Monumental stupidity of online smear artists in action: Last night I RT’d a simple tweet with a 2-minute video of Biden angrily demanding massive bombing of Belgrade: seems relevant to know for a presidential candidate. 🤷‍♂️ Now I’m a Milosevic apologist, war crimes denier, etc.

Biden widens lead over Trump in Monmouth poll, but Amash may present problem

Amash, a five-term congressman who left the GOP last year amid disagreements with Trump, announced last week that he is exploring a bid for the Libertarian presidential nomination, arguing that voters deserve an option other than Biden or Trump.

Amash received only 5 percent support in the Monmouth poll. But Patrick Murray, the director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said that if the presidential race is as close as it was in 2016, when Trump beat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College, the presence of a third-party candidate on the ballot, like Amash, could prove pivotal.

Former Aides to Bernie Sanders Form a Super PAC to Support Joe Biden

Jeff Weaver, who served as Mr. Sanders’s campaign manager in 2016 and as a top adviser in 2020, is leading the effort, which will focus on mobilizing the base of Sanders supporters — young people, liberals Latinos and “blue-collar progressives” — for Mr. Biden.

Other top Sanders officials from the 2020 race who will be involved include …

Libertarians view Amash as potential 2020 game changer for party

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R), who briefly ran in the 2020 GOP primary against Trump, said he believes Amash would be a viable candidate who could pull voters from the left and the right.

„You look at the fastest growth out there in the political field, it’s on the independent side, it’s not with a traditional Republican or Democrat,” Sanford said.

I know the media will never understand this but this moment right now, with Bernie trashing his own supporters is exactly why he lost. He was more committed to maintaining power for Dems than claiming it for his own movement.

AP Interview: Sanders says opposing Biden is ‘irresponsible’

And lest there be any question, the 78-year-old Vermont senator confirmed that “it’s probably a very fair assumption” that he would not run for president again. He added, with a laugh: “One can’t predict the future.”

This Absolute Bullshit Would Not Be Possible Without Propaganda

Joe Biden has been a horrible, evil politician since long before his rape allegations went mainstream and his brain started turning to porridge. If people could gaze with fresh, unmanipulated eyes upon someone who’s dedicated his entire political career to neoliberal exploitation at home and neoconservative mass murder abroad, someone who openly boasts about authoring the foundational documents of the USA PATRIOT Act, someone who promises rich donors that “nothing fundamentally will change” if he’s elected and who they know from experience can be taken at his word, it would never occur to them that this is someone who should be running for any elected office anywhere, let along within spitting distance of the most powerful one in the world.

It is only by the ability of the mass media to manufacture the illusion of normality that this bullshit has been made possible.

Bernie Sanders endorses Joe Biden, they announce ‚working groups‘ on policy issues

„Today, I am asking all Americans, I’m asking every Democrat, I’m asking every Independent, I’m asking a lot of Republicans, to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy, which I endorse — to make certain that we defeat somebody who I believe — and I’m speaking just for myself now — is the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country,“ Sanders said, joining Biden.

2020 elections: Barack Obama wins the Democratic primary

In the end, the most influential politician of 2020 might be the one who has been the most silent.

With Bernie Sanders exiting the race and Joe Biden taking on the mantle of presumptive nominee, the man who hovered quietly over the race for more than a year, Barack Obama, will soon return to the political fray.

Dear Bernie: Now’s the time to say FUCK THIS SHIT and run as an independent. NOW. If you had done this in 2016, you’d be running for your second term. The Dems will NEVER let you win, and we can’t wait another 4 years. Sincerely, The „US“ is #NotMeUs

I don’t look at Sanders losing primaries and think “my team is losing.” I look at them and say, win or lose, we have millions of people in this country who understand the realities of our world and the urgency required to fight for healthcare, against war and for justice.

Not sure if I mentioned this recently — I think I did, but just in case: the Democratic establishment is shit, and the only way meaningful progress is possible in the US is if it’s uprooted and destroyed:

If the Democratic Party bosses, major Wall Street firms, credit card companies, weapons manufacturers, health care lobbyists wanted to implement a plan to keep Donald Trump in the White House, I cannot imagine a better move than making Joe Biden the nominee.

Dems Converge Around Dementia-Addled Warmonger Ahead Of Super Tuesday

Sanders has not been pulling in anywhere near the numbers he’d need to pull to prevent a contested convention. This means that even if he gets more votes than any of his primary opponents, party leaders can still overrule those votes and appoint Biden as their nominee to run against Trump. Establishment spinmeisters as well as all Sanders’ primary opponents have been working to normalize this ahead of time.

The only problem? Biden’s brain is turning into sauerkraut.

Biden races to lock down moderates as Buttigieg exit rocks rapidly shifting Democratic race

Joe Biden is moving closer to consolidating the support of moderate Democratic voters and donors after a resounding victory in South Carolina and Pete Buttigieg’s departure from the party’s presidential race.

02.03.2020 - 15:33 [ CNN ]

Buttigieg’s exit is better for Biden than Sanders

Let’s start with the simple fact that Biden has been hovering around the 15% threshold for delegates in a number of states, including the huge Super Tuesday delegate prize of California. Biden was at 13% in a CNN/SSRS poll conducted there. Buttigieg was at 7%. If Biden gets two points of that 7%, it could make all the difference in the world to him. That alone could net Biden dozens or more of delegates.

Trump: Buttigieg dropping out is start of Dems ‚taking Bernie out of play‘

Trump predicted in a tweet that the majority of Buttigieg’s votes in Super Tuesday states would go to Biden, thereby hamstringing Sanders’s chances of obtaining the Democratic nomination.

„Pete Buttigieg is OUT,“ Trump wrote. „All of his SuperTuesday votes will go to Sleepy Joe Biden. Great timing. This is the REAL beginning of the Dems taking Bernie out of play – NO NOMINATION, AGAIN!“
