With Joe Biden possibly the U.S. president come January 20, many Likudniks think it’s now or never for a West Bank land grab
Der Parteitag in Milwaukee im Bundesstaat Wisconsin solle nun in der Woche vom 17. August stattfinden, teilte die Oppositionspartei heute mit. Bei der Konferenz soll der Herausforderer von US-Präsident Donald Trump bei der Wahl im November gekürt werden.
The Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee will be delayed for a month because of the coronavirus pandemic, the host committee announced on Thursday.
In the debut episode of The Intercept’s new weekly show, host Glenn Greenwald does an in-depth examination of the Bernie Sanders 2020 primary campaign and the reasons why Sanders is, once again, unlikely to become the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. Glenn interviews journalist and podcaster Liz Franczac, and Kyle Kulinski, host of the Kyle Kulinski show, about mistakes made by the Sanders 2020 campaign and larger structural issues in the Democratic Party that make it virtually impossible for insurgent campaigns to succeed.
Co-founding editor of The Intercept Glenn Greenwald, shares why he and other staunch advocates for civil liberties are more open to government surveillance during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I doubt whether the Democratic convention is going to be able to be held in mid-July, early July,” Mr. Biden told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.” “I think it’s going to have to move into August.”
Mr. Fallon had not asked Mr. Biden about the convention’s timing. The former vice president was responding to a question about how the virus would affect the election.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden seemingly lost track of his teleprompter during a speech on the coronavirus crisis, Monday.
Biden is reportedly offering people a chance to “video chat” with him in a new fundraising initiative.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) dropped out of the 2020 presidential contest after failing to gain much traction in a race in which she was overshadowed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden.
The win will allocate four delegates to Sanders, with Biden garnering two delegates from the contest.
The Northern Mariana Islands have been a United States territory since 1975 and in 2016, Hillary Clinton won the group of islands‘ caucus.
Note also how at the bottom they go from 1,344,469 vote totals to 1,072,844. Which is obviously not possible. @MichiganDems you’ve been exposed.

The host and founder of The Young Turks Cenk Uygur explains how the establishment and mainstream media has rigged the election for Joe Biden.
The reason everyone obsesses over the wants & needs of moderates is bc they r constantly threatening to vote for the other team/stay home. The party thinks the left will vote for them no matter what so we have 0 power & get treated like crap.
That’s why even though M4A and GND are overwhelmingly popular, voters choose Biden because they believe they must appease those finicky moderates. Progressives and leftists can be endlessly shit on (compared to nazis called toxic etc) bc they assume we will still vote blue anyway
Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti evaluate Joe Biden’s victories in Tuesday night’s primaries.
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.
(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.
CNN’s Van Jones and former presidential candidate Andrew Yang discuss the importance of Democrats reaching out to Bernie Sanders supporters in the event former Vice President Joe Biden lands the nomination for the party.
“This campaign is taking off and I believe we’re going to do well from this point on,” Biden said. “Take nothing for granted. I want to earn every single vote from every single state.”
Votes will be cast in Idaho, Michigan, Miss., Missouri, N. Dakota and Washington
Krystal Ball discusses Elizabeth Warren’s political motives by choosing no to endorse Bernie Sanders.
„Joe Biden is not safe. Not safe for the planet. Not safe for our health. Not safe to run against Trump.“
There are too many of us to keep us tied up trying to still be relevant to these dense, self-serving corporate dems. #BernieSurge

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:
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?
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.”

In light of clear irregularities in voting results in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary and structural barriers to voter participation, The Grayzone and CODEPINK call on the Organization of American States (OAS) to provide emergency international election monitors in the primary contest.
It is the first audit of the Fed in United States history since its beginnings in 1913. The findings verify that over $16 trillion was allocated to corporations and banks internationally, purportedly for “financial assistance” during and after the 2008 fiscal crisis.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) amended the Wall Street Reform law to audit the Fed, pushing the GAO to step in and take a look around.
Troubled ASSET RELIEF PROGRAM
Financial rescue plan aimed at restoring liquidity to the financial markets
Committed : $11 trillion (total)
Invested: $3 trillion (total)
For Americans overall, the March 1-2 survey found 53 percent of registered voters said the U.S. economic system is mostly or somewhat fair while 47 percent said the opposite.
The Biden campaign has repeatedly refused Fox News Channel’s invitations to participate in a town hall.
Separately, prompted by a recent video clip of Clinton claiming that „nobody likes“ Sanders and that he „didn’t work until he was 41,“ Sanders responded: „Unlike Secretary Clinton, I don’t want to relive 2016. We’re in 2020 now.“
Because you can register as a member of any party you like. Republicans can register as Democrats and then vote in the primary, even though they have no intention of voting Democratic in the election.
Whether conflicted conservatives vote for a Democrat in November may depend on the nominee. Earlier in the primary, NBC News spoke to some moderate Republicans who were excited at the prospect of voting for Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota or former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Right-of-center voters are open to voting for a moderate Democrat. They have been helping one in the primaries.
Polls will be open statewide from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
To hear Sanders’ entire St. Louis speech, click below.
“The DNC will spread their talking point that ‘Bernie is divisive’ … That’s because Bernie is not with the DNC. Bernie is with you … I believe Bernie Sanders. I believe Bernie is the Real Deal.”

“I stand with Bernie Sanders today because he stood with me. I stand with him because he never lost his taste for justice with the people. I stand with him because he stands with you.” –Rev. Jesse Jackson
Consider how the Democrats fill vacancies on their tickets:
“Filling a Vacancy on the National Ticket: In the event of death, resignation or disability of a nominee of the Party for President or Vice President after the adjournment of the National Convention, the National Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee shall confer with the Democratic leadership of the United States Congress and the Democratic Governors Association and shall report to the Democratic National Committee, which is authorized to fill the vacancy or vacancies.”
So, to be clear, the vacancy would be decided by Tom Perez (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Steny Hoyer (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Jim Clyburn (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Chuck Schumer (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Dick Durbin (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), and the DGA will decide on their own who will be our Democratic nominee.
The tally of ballots had been compiled from flash drives that were turned in to the county, and the county initially believed it had received all ballots from the 454 vote centers, Pippins-Poole said in an affidavit filed with the court.
„However, it was later determined that there are ballots from 44 of the precinct scanner and tabulator machines that are unaccounted for,“ Pippins-Poole said. She could not immediately be reached for comment on Saturday.
But the certification wasn’t unanimous. Several members of the Iowa Democratic Party’s state central committee, which acts as a governing board, argued that too many questions remain about the accuracy of the results.
The Associated Press has declined to call a winner in the race, citing „remaining concerns about whether the results as reported by the party are fully accurate.“
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 Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday announced new qualifying standards for the upcoming Arizona debate that will leave only the top two contenders on stage.

About 6,000 came out to Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ rally at TCF Center downtown Friday night.
The enthusiasm was electric and Sanders touched on the topics he always does – healthcare, gun laws and choice.
Watch Live 7:00 p.m. ET: Bernie Sanders holds a rally following Elizabeth Warren’s campaign ending.
I’m speaking to the media before heading to Michigan for a big rally in Detroit.
Weird how the negative discrepancies ONLY affect Bernie. Same in SC, TX, CA, MA.
Then the only thing you’ll hear is calls for Bernie to drop out.
This has been the plan from the beginning. #RiggedPrimary

1,991 delegates to win nomination
Texas, March 3, delegates:
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.
„Mein Leben als Lehrer war in den USA nicht tragbar. Ich musste noch rund 18.000 Euro meines Studienkredits zurückzahlen, mir blieb genug zum Essen, aber Freizeitaktivitäten konnte ich mir nur bedingt leisten. Nach dreieinhalb Jahren an einer Highschool in der Innenstadt von Detroit habe ich mich entschieden, meine Familie und meine Schüler zu verlassen. In den USA hätte ich nicht weiterarbeiten können.“
Elizabeth Warren declined to throw her support behind another candidate on Thursday, saying she and her supporters „don’t have to decide right this minute“ whom to back after dropping out of the Democratic primary.
The Democratic Primary has come down to a binary choice. There’s no more mushy middle in which to hide
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.
The angry and putrid shouting that has marked the last four years — and that would mark a Trump vs. Sanders campaign — might actually come to an end.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has begun to sound like an aging hippie: “It’s the establishment, man!” Sanders attacks former vice president Joe Biden not on the substance of anything that he and President Barack Obama accomplished;
Centrist lawmakers are relieved that they may not have to run with a democratic socialist atop the ticket.
California’s chief elections officer lashed out Thursday at the series of election day mishaps in Los Angeles County, demanding that local officials mail ballots to each of the county’s 5.5 million voters for the November election.
“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.”
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.
