Update on Bernie Sanders (he is still trying)

I wrote on this blog after the Russian/US oligarchs’ 2016 elections coup that Bernie Sanders would disappear from our political scenery, eventually blamed and ignored by the pseudo American leftists.

Truth be told, yes, he was later blamed for not joining the Russians/GOP on their attack on Hillary over her ‘dangerous emails debacle’. Had he join them, he would have certainly defeated her and be the president today instead of el sucio (pervert) Trump, say the zombie leftists.

But the taste of the-power-almost-won and the human ego left good ol’ Bernie berning with the continued desire of getting ‘there’, and getting all the donations with which to buy more mansions.

So Bernie wants to run again.

He thinks he can run again as a GOP mole to defeat the Democrats by, again, giving arguments to Dump and the GOP against our candidates. He is counting with the media elevating him again to sainthood, as they did to him during the past presidential elections.

Do you remember these memes?

 

 

 

 

 

Or articles at the Washington Post like this, reviewed by me on this blog, of conservative WaPo reporter and Brookings Institute praising Sanders ‘socialism’ in the open? https://crazyusaelections.wordpress.com/2016/02/20/sanders-at-brookings-institution/

February 9, 2015, The Brookings Institution hosted Sanders for a ‘conversation with Senator Bernie Sanders” (transcript).

Poor Bernie.

He still doesn’t get it. The media will NOT be there for him this time because they never liked him. They just used him as the ‘cleaner’ tool against Hillary. You see, it was not the same thing to have only the GOP attacking her using character assassination; the public would have recognized the GOP propaganda. So they (all members of the perfect storm against us -media, Putin, GOP, male oligarchs, male decrepit zombie leftists, Assange, Comey, i.e) enlisted a non-democrat independent to run on the Democratic ballot but attacking the democratic candidate using misogyny and character assassination. Let me refresh your memory: It was him and his bernies who poisoned the campaign with the ‘lock her up’ chanting, for which later Dump expressed him his gratitude.

THE MEDIA WILL NOT BE THERE FOR BERNIE THIS TIME.

Nor will the zombie leftists.

The Washington Post, one of the most fervent manipulators of Sanders’ campaign against Hillary, have been publishing articles against him. Of course, they are not going to come out with a pipe to hit him over the head. No. You don’t do that to a saint. YOU SIMPLY CRUCIFY HIM. Now, his ‘socialism’ is a problem, despite crowning him a saint for the glorious deed of ‘making socialism mainstream’ during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The pseudo leftists are already rumbling against him too. NOW, not during the 2016 campaign, they are pulling out how friendly he is with the warmongering armaments corporations. I was talking about this at that time, of course I got insulted for portraying their saint in such bad light. But not now.

So this is the latest article crucifying Bernie. I’m just saying.

Sanders could face more scrutiny for socialist leanings

 

Sanders’ Leftists Embrace Trump and white supremacists: A love-affair made in hell

like it or not, Donald Trump is the democratically elected President” Leftists Renee Parsons at CounterPunch mag

“The destruction of the Democratic Party and creation of a truly progressive political movement is the only hope for black America.” Black Agenda Report

Trump is open about it. He loves money and power. He loves violence. He expresses strong-man charisma. That is why we on the left need to embrace him. Yes, I mailed in a vote for Trump and I stand by that. Go Trump!” Anarchist for Trump by Christopher Ketcham

There is an arrogance in that last quote, an attitude that drips with lack of shame and remorse in expressing what that guy knows we know is morally wrong. The reasons that explain that behavior and attitude are simple, not simplistic, but simple.

The American Leftists (AL), with their online magazines and blogs, allying with the most racist elements of the conservative right-wing movement is the symptom, not the problem.

The problem is that the AL lost, long, long ago, any meaningful connections with the non-white working class and women whose interests they claim to advocate. When they join Trump and establish links with the white supremacists (publishing right-wingers’ opinions), they show it is easier for them to connect with the extreme right, and that they have more in common with the intellectual elements in the racist right-wing than with the ‘proletariat’.

This problem is not without dire consequences for the rest of us. In their frustration and anger, they do what is typical of the powerless masses: they lash out at their own people, resort to anarchism, attack their own institutions, and always come to the party without a plan to restore order.

This is a politics of arson. I’d rather see the empire burn to the ground under Trump,…What’s needed now in American politics is consternation, confusion, dissension, disorder, chaos — and crisis,…
C. Ketcham

Somebody else always has to do the cleaning up after the party for them; usually is the service.

After observing the problem unfold, one ends up with seeds of conspiracy theories in the hands. Conspiracies, they always start with a grain of truth, don’t they?

Bernie Sanders and the leftist’s media continued attacks on the Democratic Party, seeking to demolish it, with nothing to replace it, is the climax of that frustration and anger. Sanders has gone as far as inciting the voters at the Electoral College to vote, not to restore the people’s’ wishes expressed on November 8, but to, instead, appoint Kasich,  a racist, right-wing member of the party of the enemies of the people, the GOP, i.e.

Instead of seeking alliance with the more progressive elements in the DNC, they offer something to the GOP. Yes, they offered them something because alliances imply the trading political goods. It looks as if Sanders and the intellectually-spent leftists want a one-party nation; the GOP as it. Think about the consequences; think about which nations have and had a one-party system.

But we will have to wait 20 years to find out what the deal was. Remember the Pentagon Papers, Agent Orange reports and COINTELPRO? They confirmed so many conspiracy theories. The enemy was within.

There is yet another queer thing going on; it relates to how the right-wing media portrays the leftists as anti-Trump when it is abundantly clear that the left has joined Trump’s harem. Even more; many writers published by leftists’ magazines like Counter Punch, filled with praises for Trump, are themselves conservatives and racists (e.g.,Paul Craig Roberts). They know for which magazine they are writing, they can’t claim not knowing the left is pro-Trump.

These attacks on the leftists and the leftists on the DNC can’t be haphazard in nature; they are repeated constantly and are similar in content.

The leftists contributed to the defeat of the people’s wishes by joining the MSM and the right-wingers in their attacks on Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Sanders never apologized for arming Trump against Hillary with his name-calling and effective character assassination campaign.

The next phase for Sanders and the leftists is to destroy the DNC, and the right-wingers’ is to destroy the progressive movement. That’s division of labor right there. With their movement divided and demoralized, where do progressives go to fight the good fight?

 

Sanders: I’m Willing To Work With Trump

“Hillary Clinton is not ‘qualified’ to be president.”

“Hillary Clinton has very bad judgment.”

Those two quotes are NOT from Trump, they are from Bernie Sanders; the first one on April 7, the second on October. I could add many more that he used with his campaign tactics of misogyny and  ‘character assassination” (google ‘character assassination’). Sanders spend the primaries attacking Hillary Clinton, not Trump or the globalists, as corrupt and dishonest, “crooked” and “criminal”, as an ‘evil woman’.

Bernie Sanders opened the path for Donald Trump’s victory; no one can forget Trump THANKING Sanders for what amounted to passing the baton of character assassination and Hillary-hating mantra to him.

Trump copied ALL of Sanders’ tactic of character assassination; but worse, Sanders NEVER went public to reject Trump’s ‘thankfulness’. Sanders could have done it considering that he came in the open supporting her, but he NEVER challenge Trump.

I said at the end of the primaries, when he lost the primaries, that Sanders was “moving to the sunset of the gods”. That was when no one could have imagined that the politicians of the electoral college were going to give a coup d’etat to democracy in the USA.

Now, look at the white men in the Dem(ocratic) party battling, cannibalizing the party, to grab the position of ‘leader’ of the party. Look at Sanders, who one year ago no one knew he existed, except in his own state, who has never achieved anything as a Congressman, see him unfurling the Bolshevist red banner of class struggle. But he dropped the socialist from his campaign, within four months, when the MSM basically told him that they can’t support him with free coverage unless he drops it. He did, didn’t he?

Sanders Joins Trump

“We look forward to working with him 

I also said in the primaries that Sanders was looking dangerously like Trump. His misogyny (refused to denounce Trump’s attacks on women and call his statements ‘clownish’), his inability to denounce Trump’s ‘anti-globalism’ for what it really was, campaign bait.

Now, Sanders says that he is willing to, paraphrasing Lennon’ song, give Trump a chance. He is like Ted Cruz (and the GOP) that, after sweeping the floor with Trump, he then goes to praise and join him. Well, at least Cruz insulted Trump; you will never see Sanders doing that.

Why would Sanders  support Trump, what has Trump done that can make a so-called ‘experienced in class politics socialist’ believe that Trump is trustworthy?

I have given the answer on this blog: The white male Leftists sympathy for chauvinist pig Trump.

“It’s class, stupid, not race” [Counter Punch Mag]

One of the reasons these politicians are willing to work with Trump, and for the Left to go head-over-heels, totally enamored, in love with Trump is because of his focus exclusively on class issues while at the same time he was threatening with Mussolini-style male bravado to violently push everyone who is not a white male to the side.

In other words, Sanders has always supported Trump’s anti-Identity Politics (IP)

I have denounced this anti-IP as fascist in almost every post published after the elections; I have provided the historical background for that position. If you are interested in the topic, check those posts.

I know there will be enough material, as days come by, to see Sanders for what he really is: an opportunist, misogynistic, power-thirsty flip-flopper pseudo-socialist; an enemy of women and of people of color.

He was unvetted by the MSM in the primaries. I did the vetting, you can still search for it on this blog. It’s not mere antipathy for him.

It’s his record, stupid.

Why are Bernie Sanders And Dems Willing To Work With Trump?

Why are they leisurely willing to see if he is a Nazi or not?

They should block his administration.This is an all white, all male administration, with the support of Wall Street and the globalists. When have you seen the oligarchy siding with the working class and women? WHEN?

These politicians have made their living for years in Congress, all they care is about themselves and white voters.

They will support Trump in giving the jobs to white male workers who voted for him. That’s what the Dems and Sanders are saying, that Hillary lost because she was a “shitty candidate” (Sanders tender words about her) and because the party didn’t cater to white racist Americans.

She didn’t lose! Why are they or anyone maintaining that lie? It was an anti-democratic election, period.

The people are at the mercy of anarchists and opportunists. We have no political power nor organization.

Nothing good is coming from this debacle.

People of color, women and immigrants will be violently pushed to the sides.

 

Bernie Sanders Lost the Primaries: He Moves Towards the Sunset of the Gods

[See  my 2019 Update on Bernie Sanders (he is still trying) ]

There is an update to this post as a result of the presidential elections: “Sanders: I’m Willing to Work With Trump”.

Also, as I predicted somewhere else, the pseudo-left is now accusing him of being a ‘democratic right winger’. During the elections Sanders was a demi-god, but after he helped in the coup against the people of this nation, now he is ‘trash’. Can’t say I didn’t warn you.

Bernie is, for all practical purposes, gone: he lost.

And the (rightfully) angry millennials who raised him to Sage status and put the fear in Hillary’s and the DNC’s hearts, they lost with him.

At the end of his magical mystery  tour, Bernie leaves the millennials behind in the same condition in which he found them when he boarded them into his coach: disorganized, with no future and no movement.

Actually, he left them in worse situation, for now they are angrier and feeling betrayed by just about everybody. Theirs is a sense of not-belonging, of not being wanted, a sense of being alone born of a not-yet-matured sense of having been manipulated by politicians.

Sanders is 70+ years old and owns a fancy multi-million dollars home to retire to after the dust settles down. His millennials have nothing. He benefited financially from the millions of $27 donations: his wife derived a juicy salary as campaign manager paid from it. Everybody got richer at the top of his campaign HQ…the millennials got the joy and pride of becoming $27 poorer for him.

Bernie’s house.

bernie

Rachel Maddow at Bernie’s.

Sanders is going nowhere but to retirement, he will not be part of anything millennials do from now on; maybe he stays in the Democratic party, maybe not. He didn’t even support progressives down ballot because it was all about him.

But millennials are not going to complain about him (bless their hearts). Why?

Because they know that theirs was a symbiotic relationship with Sanders: they raised him and, in exchange, he paid them with a vivid-dream, a new form of Hope and Change: ‘doing the revolution’. The millennials refused to listen to anyone but beloved Bernie. Anyone who didn’t join them or who dared to ask questions about his political record was immediately cursed and publicly humiliated a la Trump.

And the American Left joined them in the dream because they are political zombies. They have nothing else to do but drawling for the millions of followers Sanders has and trying to drag the youngsters into their lairs: the Green party and any of the assorted decrepit socialist tombs passing for ‘workers party’. (I’m not too fond of the Left any more, does it show?)

Hinting Betrayal

The first missed hint that they were being had by Bernie was how quickly Sanders dropped the word “socialist” from his speeches. He made the MSM feel safe to prop him up with free coverage, and leave him unvetted so he could be their attack dog against Hillary Clinton. It was a repeat of what they did in the 2008 primaries, they propped unvetted Obama and attacked Hillary with a painful barrage of misogynistic articles. The word ‘socialist’ is now reserved by the media as an adjective – not an idea -to show how a ‘socialist’ almost defeated evil Hillary.

The second hint at betrayal was how quickly Sanders re-focused his campaign away from attacking the oligarchs towards attacking Hillary Clinton as the evil, powerful witch who has corrupted EVERYBODY; she decided every presidential decision –  Obama’s and Bill’s – with her scary feminist power. Gone were the ‘substantive’ class struggle analysis. It became a campaign to destroy Hillary so Bernie could be the nominee.  Instead of attacking the oligarchs, WS, the pharma, or even Trump, he attacked the DNC as the evil ‘establishment’ controlled by Hillary who has caused all the problems of the world.

First I have to win the nomination, I have to put all my energies into winning the nomination; later we can talk about how to do the political revolution.

Third hint: no talk about creating a third-party or how to ‘do the revolution’. If the DNC is such a corrupt place, the dream of ‘reforming’ it makes no sense. Better start a new workers party from scratch. But Sanders promised the DNC he wouldn’t do that; and the millennials don’t want to hear any criticism of their beloved Leader.

Sanders will talk to his millennials tonite; only then we will know how correct or incorrect my observations about his campaign are. Which way will the millennials go is yet to be seen. They may vote for Trump, but don’t expect them to join any of the American Left’s groups. Hopefully they will create something new to replace the old leftist debris.

Either way, Bernie’s campaign was a majestic run towards the sunset of the gods.

Update: In promoting his new book, Sanders promised in October to be a “thorn” in Hillary’s government. I wouldn’t count on it, it was just for promoting his book. He continues to be part and parcel of the “establishment”.

Fearing Trump: For The Globalists, Coup Is In The Air

It’s been 15 years since the horror that was 9/11. For all of those 15 years our nation’s political leaders (in both parties), both presidents since then, and the oligarchs, they all have been at war with other nations…and with their own citizens.

For how much longer do you think our oligarchy overlords can keep us supporting their globalist misadventures and their for-the-Homeland Security lies?

There is an answer to that question, and it relates  to the political crisis that this presidential election cycle represents. I propose to you that the oligarchs know that the jig is up and that they are,  in the words of Brazil’s  Vice President in charge of the soft  coup against Dilma Rousseff,  ready to “pacify the nation“.

The Crisis: The Oligarchs Are Feeling Restless

Listen, you know the answer to that as well as I do, and I don’t think we’re going to see a President Trump. I’m seeing [disturbing] things today that I never expected to see from either party . And I think when you have the American people as angry as they are, this makes them ripe for populism, and I think what we’re seeing is rooted in that populism. I’m not going to make a prediction on who our president’s going to be. But I will stick my neck way out and say, I don’t think it’s going to be Donald Trump.Globalist Han Paulson

Elites can continue pursuing and defending [global] integration, hoping to win sufficient popular support — but, on the evidence of the US presidential campaign and the Brexit debate, this strategy may have run its course.  Larry Summers

I have had a strong point of view on each of the last ten presidential elections, but never before had I feared that what I regarded as the wrong outcome would in the long sweep of history risk grave damage to the American project. [Idem]

What was in the beginning an imponderable is now taken for granted: support for Trump comes from the angry voters who can’t tolerate the success of globalism any more. It fits perfectly on one of Trump’s many funny promises: voters are tired of too much success,  they are asking ‘please, don’t succeed any more‘.

Our oligarchs aren’t laughing. The American project, our democratic system, is at risk if we don’t stop being angry and threatening to vote for the ‘wrong’ candidates.

NOTE: Nothing on this post should be construed as an endorsement of Donald Trump. I don’t support him in any way, shape or form.

The candidates:

First thing to note  is that these primaries are not ”usual’ or ‘typical’ by any means.  They have been ground shaking: party shaking, and ideology shaking too. Not since JFK’s administration have we seen anything like this.

It would be a political mistake of our citizens to take these elections as one about  the candidates’ personality problems. But that’s precisely the theme that the MSM is giving them; it has all been about Trump, the carnival character, and Hillary as the evil woman hated by every body. By the time the citizens wake up and see the truth, it will be too late for them to correct their mistake, just as they woke up too late  to the con game that was the invasion of Iraq. Now we are all stuck with the consequences of not being alert.

The second  noticeable phenomenon  is the MSM  repeating 24/7 since the beginning of the primaries, on TV, paper and online, the subtext that none of the candidates is worthy of your vote. Both Trump and Hillary have been bashed by them (whether you think they deserve it or not is immaterial to the media) as wholly dishonest,  liars and highly contemptuous lacking in human qualities. Seldom is there a reference to the candidates ideological positions; all attacks  aim at ‘character assassination”.

It is clear that the MSM doesn’t want you to consider either of the candidates as alternatives. If Trump is the racist narcissist liar whose election portent the fall of this nation, why are they attacking the other candidate whom everybody agrees is presenting a serious and well thought out platform? Please, don’t fall for a cynical or knee jerk answer, this question should matter to you.

If not Trump and not Clinton, then who? Sanders? Seriously. Have you stopped to consider that question? The WaPo and The NY Times endorsed Hillary, but their attacks on her have been relentless and even cruel sometimes. They even suggest that Sanders is the ‘honest’ one and she is a career liar.  I don’t see the ‘benefit’ of their endorsement, it certainly has not given her any positive coverage.

What if the problem with Hillary Clinton’s campaign is Hillary Clinton? Sometimes the problem is you.” WaPo

The Take: Clinton got what she needed, but her image is underwater. WaPo [This the day after she won big in NY. ]

You don’t find any articles from them asking you to vote for her to prevent Trump from winning.

So, for whom the MSM wants you to vote? Or are they insinuating that the decision have been made for you already? Or are they getting you used to the fact that the nation is in such turmoil and none of the candidates are capable to handle the crisis, that the decision will have to be made for you by the powers that be?  This ‘none of them’ campaign is fertile ground to plant anything and anyone in place of  “them“. And you will consent to it and love it too.

At War With The People: Coup Is In The Air

It is the people who matters. And the oligarchs have been paying attention to you because you are threatening their order. Voting is the crown jewel of the oligarchs’ democracy, and now you want to subvert it by voting for people they don’t approve of. If you elect Trump, you will be punished.

The United States has always been governed by the authority of ideas, rather than the idea of authority. Nothing is more important than to be clear to all Americans that the tradition of vigorous political debate and compromise will continue. The sooner Donald Trump is relegated to the margins of our national life, the better off we and the world will be. [Idem]

That’s right, there’s them, the oligarchs, who decide when we will be ruled by “the idea of authority”, i.e., dictatorship, and us, who have to debate and compromise with them. And there will be no “compromise and debate” until ‘us’ relegate Trump to the status of social outcast – “to the margins of our national life”. Another coup to Americans is being considered, that’s the meaning of that paragraph.

Talking about angry people, Summers sounded pretty angry there, didn’t he?

We have seen not so subtle threats before, most recently in 2009 when Bush told Congress that if they don’t sign the bail out of the greedy globalists they could see martial law signed by him. The oligarchs are threatening everybody, not just us. They are threatening harm to the Brits if they vote Brexit. And as if to send you a message that they are serious about how to stop, yes Trump, but ultimately your anger, the HuffPo published this article: At Secretive Meeting, Tech CEOs And Top Republicans Commiserate, Plot To Stop Trump

The HuffPo is owned by Verizon, so I take it that the message in that article was the imminency of the  perceived threat, not any details or facts (there were none) about what was discussed in that “meeting to plot” against Trump. But like that letter to Trump by Summers, it shows that the oligarchs are feeling restless.

The Solutions:

The depth of the crisis is such that it has the  oligarchs divided on how to fix it;  that’s a fact. You see it in how different big wigs support or don’t support efforts to derail Trump. There is also a third-party wish been discussed as we speak, but it will solve nothing because the problem is not Trump or the party. Whatever they do, voters anger will remain the same, and that’s what matter.

They see angry voters united, that’s a problem for them because, to manage the crisis you must have the people willing to negotiate, and people are beyond that level at this moment, there in Summers threat about “the idea of authority”.

So, democracy will have to be tinkered with, they may have to suspend it for a short period, if you don’t obey the globalists. And just to prove to you they mean business, take a second long look at Sanders’ followers ‘occupation’ of Trump’s rallies, and now attacking Hillary on her activities.

You saw there how easily  manipulated into creating chaos certain segments of the populace are. That was no happenstance, those provocations were planned, organized and carried out to perfection: it tested the availability  of  material to create social ‘crisis’ a la Latin America. That spectacle was for you, to show you that things  can get as intense as in third world countries if you elect Trump.

You can see in the article I linked for you above, the concrete plans globalist Trilateralist Summers have to control the people’s anger.

But this is the kicker: malleable Trump can be made the dictator the oligarchs need. It’s still too early to decide whether Trump will be obliterated or bend to the shape the oligarchs want. After all, he is a racist elitist: trust him at your own risk, like you trusted the cons who gave you Iraq and the NSA and Homeland Security…

If Not Hillary (And Certainly Not A Chance For Bernie), Then who?

I ended my previous post about how the elite is getting ready to quell the people’s anger stemming from the devastation produced by the success of globalism by saying this:

The oligarchs are as deep in this crisis as we are. But they are organized, they have traced their course and goals, they have a VISION. What does the left have?

The left has nothing to offer to the middle class. Well, maybe the Green Party does. Go cast your vote for whoever…

At the end of this elections cycle, we will end up exactly where we started: in the hands of the oligarchs.

That’s the sad truth, that’s exactly where we will all be when we wake up the morning of November 9, no matter who wins: Sanders, Hillary, Trump…

The elite is ready to rumble, but are we?

There are no options, none for the progressive middle class except the democratic party. The Green Party is not ready for its close-up. We have to vote for the democratic candidate. But if Sanders’ misguided and rabid Hillary-haters  followers have their way, the republicans will make the decision for us. Sanders and his followers have tarnished Hillary Clinton because she  lacks Sanders’ purity and perfection (the Vatican approved of his purity  and, in doing so, tried to mark Hillary as the ‘she-devil’), so there’s a risk she may not win the presidency.

They have made her the sole culprit for the debacle caused by globalism, they focus on her alone. Trump’s new moniker for her comes courtesy of Sanders and his followers who have joined the MSM in successfully portraying her as a subhuman entity devoid of morals. Those votes she lost to Sanders as the campaign progressed were lost because people started to believe Sanders’ and his followers’ message that she is immoral.

The leftist movement bears some of the guilt for that situation.

The left’s own monumental failure at reaching the middle  class is appalling because of the fact that, let alone the working class, humanity itself is about to collapse under the weight of the oppression by a handful of oligarchs, which makes them open to  the right message. But the left can’t communicate with the downtrodden they claim to be fighting for, and they seem to have forgotten how to organize the working class. Even Trump, a clownish wealthy entertainer, have easily found the words to explain his version of the evils of  globalism to a big segment of blue-collar America.

Instead, the left finds itself  joining the mass of people  deluded by the MSM’s bumper-sticker messages of ‘hope and change and ‘socialist-revolution’ marching towards the duopoly.

The left has fallen for the ‘Bernie revolution’ because they have not vetted him, just as they didn’t vet Obama. A revolution named after and based on worshiping a politician who has been part of the establishment for 30+ years should have been the first clue to the leftists that something was not kosher with that revolution. The fact that the MSM has refused to vet a ‘socialist’ should have also piqued their curiosity about him and his ‘revolution’.

The progressives have wasted their youth’s energy and money on helping Sanders corral them and march them in to the democratic party, the duopoly.  The left criticizes the ‘establishment’ but marches towards it in every election instead.

I imagine the ‘progressive’ Hillary-haters will spend the next four years, if she wins, battling against her instead of organizing the people so that in the next elections they have an alternative other than the duopoly.

So, if not Hillary and certainly not Sanders, then who, people? Trump? Are you serious? Is that all you’ve got to offer to the disappearing middle class?
