Why is no one treating Bernie Sanders like the Democratic front-runner?

From an electoral standpoint, Sanders stands the best chance against Trump. Large sections of the party still view him as a threat. As much as they’ve attempted to court him, flatter him, and accommodate him in various respects – recall the awkward ‘unity tour’ he held with DNC chairman Tom Perez in 2017 – he is still fundamentally at odds with the interests of the party’s most powerful actors. They might adopt bits and pieces of his agenda, as everyone from New York governor Andrew Cuomo to Nevada senator-elect Jacky Rosen has to varying degrees.

An unambiguous ‘front-runner’ designation would be a mixed blessing, because one of Sanders’s strengths last cycle was how his appeal grew somewhat under the radar, until the evidence for it became impossible to ignore.

Why is no one treating Bernie Sanders like the Democratic front-runner?

The answer is simple, those paying the salaries of the bought and paid for media puppets cannot allow his word to get out, the same holds true for Tulsi Gabbard.

In the case of Sanders, the agenda is to paint him as irrelevant and few are paying attention to him this time around. The game is played out through the polls which are designed to get a response they want, then they can use the poll results to reinforce what they are selling.

In the case of Gabbard, they simply ignore anything she says or does unless it is something they can use as a smear attack. This is difficult as Congresswoman Gabbard is pretty "clean" and actually is the best individual to hold the presidency as she shows much composure, intelligence, and agenda.

Both Sanders and Gabbard are threats to the MIC, Big PhRMA, the insurance industries, the oil industry, etc. because they take no donations from these sources, hence they cannot be controlled by them. These two take money from individual voters, hence their allegiance is to the people, not the mighty.

Why? Because Bernie is the only candidate who will crush trump, like he would have in 2016.


And the 1% doesn't want him to do that.

I think Tulsi would also beat Trump.

From her website:


In this new century, everyone has clean water to drink, clean air to breathe and access to nourishing food; everyone receives the medical care they need, has a roof over their head, receives the education they need and is able to find good paying, fulfilling work. People have financial security and don't have to worry about making ends meet in their old age.


This is just more "blah, blah, blah". I see no plans for anything.


She is apparently not for universal health care that removes the health insurance parasites from the equation.


I don't think she's completely anti-war, just anti-regime change, world war.

She has stated she is against regime change wars, but not wars that protect. She has stated that World War II is an example of what she would consider as one to be involved in.

She has stated that much of the rhetoric given by most candidates is blah blah blah because without ending the regime change wars that are siphoning off the dollars that are needed to clean the water in Detroit and other major cities, provide the Medicare for all, provide free education for all, etc. She is basically a Bernie Sanders in a female package except she has proved she would put her convictions ahead of her self when she resigned as #2 in the DNC to endorse Bernie in 2016. Having not done that she would be the Democrat Parties "darling" rather than the one they want to silence even demonize. As far as other actions she and Bernie are the only two candidates who are writing/sponsoring bills right now on things they are campaigning on. She wrote a bill on the election process that was actually stolen from her by placing the word "Federal" in the title and putting in millions of dollar of taxpayer money to vendors where Tulsi's put a cap on money spent the new version removed the cap. She has several other bills pending. So, no, she is not merely an idle chatter, she does act and would be a super Commander-in-Chief.

Again, Tulsi is the only one with her eye on the bullseye, let alone truly aiming for it. As you well know.

She has already won MANY Trump voters for her focus on non-interventionism.
