I’m honored to receive the endorsement of @CCIAction. Together, we’re going to win the Iowa caucus and defeat Trump by mobilizing millions of working people to fight for justice.

Walmart made $9.86 billion last year. Surely, they can afford to pay employees working over the long Thanksgiving weekend extra. America doesn’t suffer from scarcity — we suffer from greed.

Krystal Ball rips report saying Obama would intervene to stop Sanders

Bernie is an existential threat to business as usual and both parties ability to cash in as perpetual winners in the oligarchy-and they’ll use every means, fair and unfair, to protect their position. So, to those of you dedicated to upending business as usual, in case you had any illusions, Obama’s comments prove that you better be prepared for the fight of your life.

I want to be the party of the New Deal again. The party of the Civil Rights Act, the one that electrified this nation and fights for all people. For that, many would call us radical. But we aren’t “pushing the party left,” we are bringing the party home.

“It’s time that we become the party of FDR again. It’s time for us to become the party of the Civil Rights Act again. It’s time for us to become the party that fights for queer liberation again, the anti-war party, a party that establishes peace and prosperity.” -@AOC

When I am president, the United States will lead not in war-making but in bringing people together to take on authoritarianism and corporate greed.

THANK YOU! 🙏🏽🙏🏽 The hashtag I launched this morning, #TooFarLeft, is #1 in America and #3 worldwide. The idea is to destroy the ludicrous mainstream talking point that wanting social, economic, racial, and environmental justice is a radical position.

‚Too Far Left‘ hashtag trends on Twitter

The hashtag „TooFarLeft“ trended on Twitter on Saturday morning, in part because of comments made Friday by former President Obama.

Obama spoke at a fundraising meeting Friday evening and warned donors of the danger of the 2020 Democratic primary field moving too far to the left.

„Even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision, we also have to be rooted in reality,“ Obama said. „The average American doesn’t think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it.“

The post-war Labour government gave us full employment; the NHS; modern welfare state; public ownership of railways, electric, gas, coal and steel; and built a million new homes. All when the country’s back was broken. Never let it be said that we can’t afford a decent society.

FDR Reminds Us To Criticize Corporate Democrats

„In these days of danger when democracy must be more than vigilant, there can be no connivance with the kind of politics which has internally weakened nations abroad before the enemy has struck from without.

It is best for America to have the fight out here and now.“

I don’t get it. Why is Bernie even a Dem if he isn’t going to be a puppet for a handful of donors?

For over 40 years, the largest and most profitable corporations in America have rigged the tax code and our economy. That ends when we’re in the White House. Read our plan to put power back in the hands of workers:

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.

At his rally just now, Trump called me an “America-hating socialist” and a “disgrace.” He shouted xenophobic conspiracy theories about me. He scolded my district for voting for me. His hate is no match for our movement. Stand with me by donating now:

And guess what: if you also believe in a free + open democratic society, where people are treated humanely and don’t die over $300 insulin or needless war, they’ll call you a communist too. Well, they don’t scare us or shake our focus. We are going to build a better world.

2. Just to be clear, this ad where a sitting member of Congress‘ face (@AOC) is lit on fire didn’t just air on the Sinclair station in DC. It also aired on ABC stations in NYC and Houston. Unlike the DC ABC station, the NYC & Houston stations are owned & operated by Disney/ABC

Political Ad Attacking AOC: ‘Beyond the Pale’

A Catholic nun is shocked that ABC would run an ad with “horrific images” during the Democratic debate.

14.09.2019 - 08:34 [ Scott Dworkin, Co-Founder @TheDemCoalition ‏/ Twitter ]

ABC can go to hell. Running propaganda with a picture of @AOC being set on fire, with dead bodies & skulls in the background, was absolutely despicable. People need to be fired over this. It’s ridiculous & evil. ABC profited off of it, during the #DemDebate. Shame on ABC. Shame.

We have to make the tough, courageous changes that completely transform a political and economic system that is now built for corporations (and profits), not people. Choosing the status quo means doing nothing and giving up. We need a political revolution.

Hadash MK Ofer Cassif: Netanyahu Deliberately Leading Israel to War

Hadash MK Ofer Cassif placed responsibility for the escalation of violence between Israel and Hezbollah on Sunday, September 1, at the doorstep of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calling him “the serial criminal from Balfour Street.”

Cassif said “Netanyahu and his servants are responsible” for the recent clash, adding they mean to “occupy the seat of power with blood and to ensure the criminal [Netanyahu] will escape prison.”

Joint List leader, MK Ayman Odeh (Hadash) agreed saying, “We will not be silent when the cannons roar” and warned that a further war “will not bring security, only death, destruction and victims on both sides.”

Op-Ed: Bernie Sanders on his plan for journalism

Walter Cronkite once said that “journalism is what we need to make democracy work.” He was absolutely right, which is why today’s assault on journalism by Wall Street, billionaire businessmen, Silicon Valley, and Donald Trump presents a crisis—and why we must take concrete action.

Can Bernie Sanders Really Win? After This Week, It Seems More Possible Than Ever

Sanders published his plan in The Columbia Journalism Review, outlining his desire to undo moves by the Trump administration that have made media mergers easier. He wants to freeze all major media tie-ups until their effects can be studied, and he aims to protect local news outlets and independent media from corporate consolidation.

This election isn’t about „red states“ or „blue states.“ In every state, there are working people who are desperate for change and an economy that works for more than just the billionaires. We stand with them and together we are going to win.

Sen. Bernie Sanders wins major labor endorsement

The union, which represents some 35,000 workers, announced the endorsement at its biennial convention in Pittsburgh, where Sanders spoke Monday morning. It is the first endorsement Sanders has received from a national union this year.

The only other national union that has made an endorsement in the Democratic contest is the International Association of Fire Fighters, which backed former vice president Joe Biden shortly after he declared his candidacy. That union includes about 300,000 members in the United States and Canada.

Greed is the religion of the billionaire class. And a nation based on greed will not survive morally, economically or politically. That is why we fight to take power back from the billionaires and put it in the hands of the people, where it belongs.

FACT CHECK: Sen. Sanders: „500,000 people are sleeping out on the streets today.“ He’s basically correct. While the number of people experiencing homelessness fluctuates in the US, the most recent govt. tally broadly comports with his claim. #DemDebate
