Turner Vs. Brown: A Showdown Between Progressive And Establishment Dems

State Board of Elections Approves Software To Tabulate Ranked-Choice Primary Results

(25.05.2021)

The approval comes after more than 18 months of back and forth between the city and state over the process required to test and implement the Universal Ranked-Choice Voting Tabulator, the software selected by the city which was developed by a non-partisan non-profit called The Ranked Choice Resource Center. It wasn’t until January of this year that state officials finally agreed to allow the mandatory testing and certification to take place.

I support the method because, by design, it delivers a more representative outcome and gives voters more choice than a winner-take-all system. In addition, ranked-choice voting discourages negative campaigning and elects fewer extreme candidates.

Regarding the US presidential election in 2020: We are done with democracy simulations

(7. Februar 2020)

After the Iowa fraud and Bernie Sanders‘ Al Gore style capitulation (no recount / „recalculation“ of an in broad daylight rigged caucus) and the deafening silence of each and every progressive lawmaker, even from the Squad, we do not support any candidate in this election and furthermore question its authenticity and legitimacy. From this day on, we will rarely post any news to this election-without-a-choice.

We would like to ask you: would the Trumpolini in the White House watch, just for even a few hours, the Republican Party doing this to his campaign? The progressives in the Democratic Party let this happen for days and kept their head down. And Millions of good-willing, hard working people on the ground were let down and deceived, again.

We’re not going along with this dirty game, which can be played again and again and again on people who tolerate it once without resistance.

Notably, we have calculated with this development years ago and described a possibility how Bernie Sanders could have become US president (article in German). Let that sink in, just for a minute or two.

Since decades, only (far) right-wingers, warmongers and egoists have real candidates and political parties.

So, „vote“ yourself.

How the Iowa caucuses came ‘crashing down,’ under the watchful eye of the DNC

The DNC ordered and paid for a security audit of the software, which was completed by NCC Group, a Britain-based cybersecurity firm. Out of the review, which also involved threat assessment conducted with the national party as well as officials in Iowa and Nevada, came directions to guard the name of the vendor, and to take the software live as late as possible to prevent it from getting into the hands of hackers, according to multiple people who participated or had knowledge of the exercises.

“The exit poll was subsequently adjusted* for conformity with the final computerized vote count.” THE 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY WAS RIGGED.

Electoral fraud, sometimes referred to as election fraud, election manipulation or vote rigging, is illegal interference with the process of an election, either by increasing the vote share of the favored candidate, depressing the vote share of the rival candidates, or both.

States which had been projected to expect large Sanders wins, corresponded with raw data on exit polls confirming the expected Sanders wins.

Computerized vote counts however, showed very large Biden wins. The DNC accepted computer vote counts and CHANGED NUMBERS on exit polls to suggest that Biden won.

Are we witnessing a dishonest election? A between state comparison based on the used voting procedures of the 2016 Democratic Party Primary for the Presidency of the United States of America

(June 7, 2016)

Given the stakes in the outcome of the American presidential elections, ensuring the integrity of the electoral process is of the utmost importance. Are the results we are witnessing in the 2016 primary elections trustworthy? While Donald Trump enjoyed a clear and early edge over his Republican rivals, the Democratic contest between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernard Sanders has been far more competitive. At present, Secretary Clinton enjoys an apparent advantage over Sanders. Is this claimed advantage legitimate? We contend that it is not, and suggest an explanation for the advantage: States that are at risk for election fraud in 2016 systematically and overwhelmingly favor Secretary Clinton. We provide converging evidence for this claim.

First, we show that it is possible to detect irregularities in the 2016 Democratic Primaries by comparing the states that have hard paper evidence of all the placed votes to states that do
not have this hard paper evidence. Second, we compare the final results in 2016 to the
discrepant exit polls. Furthermore, we show that no such irregularities occurred in the 2008
competitive election cycle involving Secretary Clinton against President Obama. As such, we
find that in states wherein voting fraud has the highest potential to occur, systematic efforts may
have taken place to provide Secretary Clinton with an exaggerated margin of support.

Stanford Study Proves Election Fraud through Exit Poll Discrepancies

What’s True

Two researchers (presumably graduate students) from Stanford University and Tilburg University co-authored a paper asserting they uncovered information suggesting widespread primary election fraud favoring Hillary Clinton had occurred across multiple states.

What’s False

The paper was not a „Stanford Study,“ and its authors acknowledged their claims and research methodology had not been subject to any form of peer review or academic scrutiny.

10 ways the Democratic primary has been rigged from the start

(30.03.2016)

Concerned Sanders would win Nevada, Sen. Harry Reid, the former Senate Majority Leader and most powerful elected official in Nevada, as it later emerged, arranged a plan with owners of Las Vegas casinos, where many caucuses were being held, and other employers, to ensure Clinton would win. The Nevada caucuses were then rigged with massive voting irregularities such as casino owners orchestrating which workers would be allowed to vote and, in clear intimidation, openly monitoring how they voted.

Vote tampering also occurred in other states, most recently in Arizona where on election day, polling locations were sharply cut forcing many voters to stand in line for up to five hours in the heat, with some leaving before casting a vote.

Sandsack Joe

(25. April 2019)

Angesichts des geradezu obszön undemokratischen Vorwahlsystems der „Demokratischen Partei“ fragten wir uns im Februar, was Bernie Sanders wirklich will – gewinnen oder nur die größte Verräterpartei auf dem Planeten und damit das Zwei-Parteien-System der Vereinigten Staaten retten?

Mittlerweile hat Bernie Sanders bewiesen, dass er tatsächlich gewinnen will. Und spätestens seit seinem Durchmarsch sogar im erzkonservativen TV Sender „Fox News“ muss sowohl dem jetzigen U.S.-Präsidenten, als auch der Nomenklatura, klar geworden sein, dass er gewinnen kann.

Das – und nur das – ist der Grund, warum Joe Biden jetzt antritt. Seine Präsidentschaftskandidatur hat nur den einzigen Sinn und Zweck Bernie Sanders irgendwie zu verhindern. Und das auch um den Preis von vier weiteren Jahren von Donald Trump im Weißen Haus.

Alle, wirklich alle, müssen wissen, dass Joe Biden gegen das Original Donald Trump – der eine lediglich konsequente Umsetzung von Bidens eigenem Charakter darstellt – nur verlieren kann.

Dass Biden es nun genau anders herum darstellt – er müsse jetzt quasi die Welt vor Trump retten, nur er könne das noch – gehört zum Abgrund der Heuchelei und des Verrats, den Biden repräsentiert und dem er jetzt mit der Macht eines Cäsars über die Welt vier oder acht Jahre dienen will.

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.

Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen: Calculating the Millions-High Death Toll of America’s Post-9/11 Wars

(26.4.2018)

As Barbara Lee presciently warned her colleagues before she cast her lone dissenting vote in 2001, we have “become the evil we deplore.” But these wars have not been accompanied by fearsome military parades (not yet) or speeches about conquering the world. Instead they have been politically justified by “information warfare” to demonize enemies and fabricate crises, and then waged in a “disguised, quiet, media free” way, to hide their cost in human blood from the American public and the world.

After 16 years of war, about 6 million violent deaths, 6 countries utterly destroyed and many more destabilized, it is urgent that the American public come to terms with the true human cost of our country’s wars and how we have been manipulated and misled into turning a blind eye to them – before they go on even longer, destroy more countries, further undermine the rule of international law and kill millions more of our fellow human beings.

The entire 2020 primary is about whether Democrats can come to grips with what a shitty President Obama was. The answer appears to be no they cannot.

In 1968, Democrats rejected the popular peace-and-justice movement campaign of Eugene McCarthy for the safer and more predictable establishment-friendly candidacy of Hubert Humphrey. Then they lost to Richard Nixon.

The American people are sick and tired of endless wars in the Middle East which have cost hundreds of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars. We will not defeat Trump with a candidate like Joe Biden who supported and voted for the Iraq War alongside Republicans.

Pay attention to the narrative they’re building. The Bernie delegates will not be awarded until they’ve stolen Michigan for Biden.

Then the only thing you’ll hear is calls for Bernie to drop out.

This has been the plan from the beginning. #RiggedPrimary

So Biden is up 76 delegates (627-551) right now but for some reason there are 162 outstanding delegates not allocated yet and 153 of those are in Colorado, Utah, and California three states Bernie won. When are they going to update the delegates? It has been 3 full days now.

So, #Bernie lost in Texas by a lot right? Or did he? ? Final Count of Texas Delegates: ? Biden 111 ? Bernie 102 ? Bloomberg 10 ? Warren 5 ✅ A 9 delegate difference is not significant. But the huge number of delegates #Bernie2020 gained in California was astounding.

Democrats should be really, really afraid of a contested nominating convention

Contested Democratic conventions in the past led to catastrophe. In 1860, the Democratic convention broke up over the issue of slavery and in the end two Democratic candidates, one from the south, the other from the north, ran for president.

Biden’s Rise Gives the Establishment One Last Chance

I don’t know about you, but the election results this week filled me with more hope than I’ve felt in years. It felt like somebody turning down the volume.

“I’m beyond frustrated and disappointed in what I saw on Tuesday, and I’m committed to making sure it doesn’t happen again,” Secretary of State Alex Padilla said. “Clearly, voters deserve better.”

‚Give Us an Hour on MSNBC‘: Sanders Says He Would Love to Debate Medicare for All vs. For-Profit System With Joe Biden

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Wednesday night said he would „love to debate Joe Biden on this issue“—the difference between a Medicare for All plan that dozens of studies show would cover all people for less overall cost and the for-profit status quo that leaves an estimated 28 million Americans uninsured and tens of millions more underinsured, vulnerable to bankruptcies, or lacking care due to financial reasons.
