  • This was 2 weeks ago but by today he has been robbed off his democratic nomination; this is America robbing off itself of an accomplished- brighter future. He tried his level best to cater to the needs of people, put forth his policies and fought passionately- but in the end the main stream media and the democratic establishment played their crooked roles, indoctrinated people with fear of different kinds and stole from the most well deserved presidential candidate his so imminent nomination. So ironic that it is happening in These United States of America- can’t fathom this!😢😢😢

  • CNN is owned by Time Warner. Time warner is a publicly traded corporation, (TWX), with revenues of close to $30 billion per year. Time warner is one of Hillary Clintons top ten lifetime contributors. Enough said! But who exactly owns Time Warner? This is where we enter the shell game of modern globalized capitalism. 89% of TWX shares (shares of stock) are "institutionally owned". This means that large financial houses like Vanguard, State Street, JP Morgan, and Black Rock Financial owns the majority of the stock. Well who owns these entities? This is where the shell game is. Black Rock is also 89% institutionally owned. Some of the largest holders are Vanguard, State Street, and JP Morgan. If you look into the ownership of the other entities, you will soon see they all own each other! Not only do they own each other, they own every corporation you can think of. Look into any major corporation and you will see they are owned by these four entities. Hiding behind these faceless entities are the people who really own and control our country, and the world for that matter. Now do you see why "Hillary Clinton won"?! Larry Fink is the founder of Black Rock. His firm manages a staggering $12 trillion in assets worldwide; that's more than the GDP of China! ($9 trillion in 2013) Called the "Wizard of Oz" by many in Washington and on Wall Street, he truly is the man behind the curtain. He was instrumental in brokering the deals for the 2008 bailouts. His firm took on $5 trillion in assets from the government after the Bear Sterns and Lehman Brothers collapse. Ask yourself one question, who do you think Mr Fink wants to be president? Hint: NOT BERNIE SANDERS

  • Wow, I had no idea American media was _this_ biased, corporate and storytelling even on the less conservative side. These news reports are essentially hit pieces, deception and propaganda, blunt stances for the status quo and the 1% in the same style as Russian media. They seem to prefer Trump over Bernie. And some one should tell the old cult man that he already is in a cult.

  • Chuck Toad says what? Congressional Republicans have called Social Security radical socialism, communist, impossible or unsustainable since that law was first introduced while they get taxpayer provided pensions and health plans for life. Remember, "I won't cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security like every other Republican."- Don the Con Trump Trump's austerity budgets gut all 3 and public education after his tax scam looted the Treasury for multinationals, oligarchs and gifted the Trump dynasty an estimated billion. As a New York real estate mogul known as the Queen of Mean explained, "Only little people pay taxes." What more could we expect from a corrupt con man who opposes a legal livable wage, is infamous for not paying employees or taxes and told us, "That makes me smart"? An honorary degree from Trump University? Who hasn't seen the Don threaten whistleblowers, witnesses, "rats", "human scum" or civil war? Before the selfdisclosed serial predator endorsed alleged pedophile Judge Roy Moore (whose answer to the question, "When was America great?" was under slavery) the crime boss also told us, "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose any votes." Because it's better to be Fox than be targeted as an "enemy of the people"? Keep hope alive. Keep the struggle for public education, healthcare for all and democracy alive. Bernie Sanders 2020 "Call it democracy or call it democratic socialism there has to be a better distribution of wealth in this country for all god's children." - Martin Luther King who was also called a communist who hates America and was told to go back to Africa.

  • "All you have to do is to combine them genetically into Klobubuttdenbidechar." No, their sum total is significant because when one of the moderate candidate inevitably drops out down the line, their votes will probably overwhemingly turn to Biden.

  • Let's assume that Bernie is a wonderful, kind, human being that intends only the best for everyone. If we all vote to give Bernie the presidency (and the government he would appoint), he would line the government's coffers with lots and lots of fresh tax money, to be dispensed to the needy, et al. This would make the government even more powerful than it is now. But who's to say the person who occupies the White House AFTER Bernie is going to be as kind and compassionate with all the power that more tax money brings? What if they weren't? What if they were more like Stalin or Pol Pot? Would you want either of those people to be in charge of the biggest and most powerful bureaucracy on earth? I wouldn't. I'll never vote for a Socialist, no matter how kind, smart, or well-intentioned, because the next one may not be so kind, and those who have not forgotten their history know how that ends.

  • No one can tell with a 100% certainty where the wind will blow 2/3rd of the delegates haven't spoken yet. If anyone here supports Biden, more power to you but don't claim it's a done deal and if you care about democracy encourage people to vote regardless of who they vote for. Same goes for Sanders supporters and Gabbard supporters. The latter can still get at least half a dozen more votes imho, and that actually can be a tie-breaker.

  • The Klobubidubuduchar incidentally, is now what the DNC got. Because Biden can't remember who Joe's husband is, nor who's his wife and who's his sister, which makes me doubt he really knows his own name anymore. I mean, the DNC switched it up on Biden so who's to say he won't confuse his own campaign with Buttigeig or Klobuchar after they endorsed him?

  • I think the Pundits might be right. If there hadn't been 20 damn candidates, we might have had a shot at this. Hahaha! Who am I kidding. We never had any shot at all. Also, on those polls, did they have a question like: "I'm voting blue because I have to?" Do you think there might be some resentment about that?

    • @drttyu liqm Are you trying to sound like a robot? Or a broken record? What seems to have happened was that Bernie's initial swell died off when people realized there'd be real consequences for them... for us all... if he ran but didn't win. I don't call that real support.

  • Bernie actually cares about the average citizen and I think it goes to show when he won Vermont, the state he represents. It wont be easy, but its relieving to know we have a leader that will do his best to look out for people who arent in the upper tax brackets. To call him a communist is ignorant to his whole message and movement. If people cant see past his Democratic Socialist ideas, then Donald Trump will win again. Bidens a fuckin NPC and will not win 2020, guarenteed. I think its worth trying out the government styles of the Nordic countries. Maybe our nations mental state will improve if we do.

Could you imagine someone talking about sharing the wealth more fairly being allowed to climb too high? They took out the Kennedy brothers, King and probably more others than we will ever know ....but fingers crossed.
