New People’s Party Rises Amid Grim Election Options

(31.08.2020)

In a surreal year that has spiraled from surging hopes for a Bernie Sanders presidency to today’s pandemic-hemmed fear and a tight election between centrist Democrats and fascistic Republicans, now may be just the right time for a new political party.

As voters face a dismal “lesser of two evils” election in which a Biden/Harris ticket represents the only alternative to four more years of Trumpian fascism and racism, the Movement for a People’s Party aims to prevent such dreary and sparse choices in the future.

02.09.2020 - 05:20 [ Lee Fang / Twitter ]

The establishment successfully smeared Bernie out of the 2016 primary w/ lies about him being a sexist w/ a “race problem.” The same tactic gets recycled w/ Alex Morse, slandered by partisans as a sex abuser. Easy to manipulate liberal voters w/ these defamatory woke tactics.

Trump indicates election won’t be ‚fair‘ if universal mail-in voting allowed

In another exchange, the president said Democrats will struggle to unite at their convention this week, as many of the more progressive members of the party balk at a ticket including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.

„These are the same people I beat last time and they’re not gonna unite because they can’t unite, they don’t know how to unite,“ Trump said. „Also, Bernie [Sanders] is very unhappy, but actually, Biden went further left than Bernie wanted him to and Bernie’s still unhappy.“

Bloomberg to speak at Democratic convention, angering some liberals

Bloomberg jumped into the Democratic presidential primary long after much of the field, arguing that he did so to stop the rise of more liberal candidates like Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The former mayor and businessman, who has been a Republican, a Democrat and an independent in his career, ended up spending more than $1 billion on his campaign, an astonishing number that dwarfed every other candidate in the race.

Republican candidates include business executive Lynne Homrich, physician Rich McCormick and state Sen. Renee Unterman, while Democrats are choosing whether to renominate Carolyn Bourdeaux, a Georgia State University professor who came within 433 votes of unseating Woodall. Among the five other candidates seeking the nomination are activist Nabilah Islam, state Sen. Zahra Karinshak and state Rep. Brenda Lopez Romero.

Stay Alive, Joe Biden – Democrats need little from the front-runner beyond his corporeal presence.

(24.03.2020)

Two days before the South Carolina primary that would reverse his political fortunes and redirect the course of the Democratic nomination, Joe Biden’s campaign for president announced a hastily planned event in McClellanville, South Carolina. The national campaign press was alerted that Biden would enter full battle mode at this stop, that the proverbial gloves were about to come off ahead of the kill-or-be-killed primary on Saturday, and no one would want to miss this one.

And yet, when the cameras and reporters arrived, all they found were a few folding chairs in an otherwise empty parking lot, in front of a community health center. Biden walked out to a podium, mumbled a few words about the improvements he wanted to make to Obamacare, and then shuffled off, alone. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and absolutely nothing had changed.

He explained that he was dropping out because his campaign didn’t have a clear path to victory.

Demokratie-Simulation der U.S.-„Demokraten“: Wann gründet sich endlich eine neue Partei?

Der unserer Einschätzung nach offensichtliche, vor aller Augen durch die „Demokratische Partei“ in ihren Vorwahlen vollzogene Wahlbetrug wird nur deshalb viele überraschen und schockieren, weil sie ihn nicht als solchen erkennen oder erkennen wollen. Dabei verhält sich diese Mutter aller Verräterparteien in der U.S.-Hegemonie genauso, wie wir es bei Radio Utopie erwartet haben und seit Jahren analysieren.

Prognose: Trump wird 2020 wieder U.S.-Präsident

(13. Juni 2018)

In keinem Falle kandidiert Sanders als unabhängiger Kandidat zur Präsidentschaftswahl und / oder gründet eine neue Partei. Und in keinem Falle schafft es die demokratische Linke in den U.S.A. diese vor der Präsidentschaftswahl in 2020 zu gründen. Dies geschieht erst nach der erneuten desaströsen Niederlage der sogenannten „Demokraten“ gegen Donald Trump.

Progressives Sound Alarm to Democrats: Biden Is Not the ‚Safe‘ Candidate Against Trump

„Joe Biden is not safe. Not safe for the planet. Not safe for our health. Not safe to run against Trump.“

We need our own party. Its time to leave the sinking ship Dem party behind. After this election, The Progressive party needs its own leadership.

There are too many of us to keep us tied up trying to still be relevant to these dense, self-serving corporate dems. #BernieSurge

Rule #1 of politics is don’t piss off your base. Republicans never violate it. An entire wing of the democratic party not only violates it, but has made violating it the centerpiece of their ideology. Lecturing voters every debate using GOP talking points. Iceberg dead ahead.

Exit polling in three states from Super Thursday are off by 10% while California still counts ballots and 102 delegates haven’t yet been awarded. And every coin toss, miscount, non-count, bad polling always -always- always goes against #BernieSanders.

Michigan: C-SPAN 2 camera zooms out far enough to show the reality of Joe Biden’s true campaign. Detroit Michigan school gymnasium. The attendance super low, but on top of that; audience talked with each other the whole time that he was giving his speech.

Some Super Tuesday Votes Won’t Count Unless Dallas Judge Fixes Democrat Election Official’s Mistake

Dallas County Elections Administrator Toni Pippins-Poole will be in district court today asking a state judge to allow a partial recount of the March 3 primary, due to “counting errors” found days after the ballot count was complete.

In a petition filed Friday night, the Democrat official said she discovered “discrepancies” between the number of voters who checked in at the polls and the number of electronic ballots counted:

Dear America, Please Stop This Nonsense Immediately. Love, The Rest Of The World

So, I know you don’t like us to bother you during an election year, but all the people in all the other countries in the world have been talking, and there’s just one teensy, weensy issue we wanted to chat with you about, if you don’t mind.

Ummmm… so, like, are you guys really going to do this Joe Biden thing? Like, for real?

Even Trump knows that @TheDemocrats are so corrupt they are planning on losing to him again if they can stop the candidate who represents workers. #ZombieParty

Democrats and Their Media Allies Impugned Biden’s Cognitive Fitness. Now They Feign Outrage.

But, as the Democratic establishment has united with creepy speed and obedience behind Biden in order to stop the Sanders candidacy, those who now raise these concerns instantly come under a withering assault of insults and attacks from Democratic Party operatives along with their crucial media allies: thinly disguised pro-Biden reporters who continue to insist on wearing the unconvincing and fraudulent costume of neutrality. They are invoking the classic Orwellian formulation from the novel 1984: “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
