The around-the-clock fusillade of criticism directed at Bernie Sanders on cable news has switched into overdrive, synchronized precisely (hint, no coincidence) with Joe Biden's announcement of his candidacy for President.

BREAKING: "Biden is not only the prohibitive front-runner but he's also the presumptive nominee." After all, Donald Trump trolled him on Twitter so there you go, "it's over!"

Bernie who? Elizabeth what? Beto WTF, Pete what's his name? Kamala how do you pronounce it? We don't need no stinkin' healthcare, fair wage, social justice-talkin' leftist, Socialist candidates in this race no more. We have a real man, a real candidate, Joe (Big Joe) Biden.

If you listen to cable news long enough, you might really come to believe that what you see with your own two eyes isn't real at all. "But that sh*** as Jules said in Pulp Fiction, "ain't the truth." The truth is, on the strength of Bernie Sanders's 2016 campaign and his organizing efforts since then, the country has moved in a decidedly Progressive direction.

Not only have the voters adopted his perspectives, the other candidates in the race have as well, as has the Democratic Party as a whole. Joe Biden included.

Joe Biden's campaign is built on the foundational premise "He can win." One way Biden can win is if the two-thirds of Democratic primary voters who are backing Progressive candidates split their votes among the crowded Progressive field. Then Biden could win the Democratic nomination with 25%. That appears to be his best chance.

The majority of Democratic voters are going to vote for Progressive policies. The Fortune 500 propaganda oracles are going to promote Joe Biden. That's the truth.

Who cares? What exactly has changed for the people of the world and this country over the last 60 years? Aside from the noose getting tighter and the scaffolding scarier?

Never underestimate the gullibility and suggestibility of the American people. But it is true that Biden's sleazy dealing in Ukraine, not to mention his detestible past make him the perfect followup to Hillary and Bill. And a combination of DNC Superdelegates foisted on the rank and file along with media putting lipstick on the Biden pig make anything possible. And then they'll beat their breasts when their frenemy Trump wins again. It's the American Truman show staged in the Potemkin Village, aka Land if the Free.

I would NEVER vote for Joe Binden, because of being a part of the globalist stooge Obama administration, or Bernie Sanders, with the way he rolled over so easily to Kill...er Hillary Clinton!

My conscience would NEVER allow me to vote Republican and I haven't voted for a Democrat since Carter, but am considering John Hinkenlooper or Pete Buttigieg.

Biden, progressive? Pure hogwash! He's got more in common with pres Dump than any of the Dem candidates!

As for right now, Bernie is the one I want for president.

If Biden wins the democratic nomination, there will be no way to stop another four years of an administration like we have seen, like we have had under Reagan/Bush/Clinton/Obama/tRUMP because it will guarantee a puppet of the wealthiest 0.01% will be in the Oval Office once again and will guarantee the further decline of the American Middle Class and the continued attacks on our constitutionally guaranteed rights, the poor, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid as well as more perpetual war, more deregulation, more increased defense spending and the continued deterioration of the infastructure (Water, Power, Roads, Bridges, etc), the continued militarization of law enforcement, high drug prices and so much more that it is to much to list here.

I am voting for the candidate with the best LONG TERM history of supporting what is best for the majority of the American People, this country, the planet and the environment, not just what is best for the 1% and corporate America.

I am voting for the candidate that is not beholding to pay back anyone because of the HUGE campaign contributions, bribes and other 'perks' they have received.

IMHO, that candidate is Bernie Sanders!!

Bernie Sanders was on the Thom Hartmann radio show on Friday afternoon for many years. Thom never really had a conversation with Bernie, it was only with the every day people who called into the show. The things Bernie said back then are basically the same he says today.


There are people today who are bashing Bernie because he became rich from writing his latest books. Those people are idiots!
