Lester Holt: Hello and welcome to the Democratic Party presidential debates, where tonight 10 people will pretend to be much further to the left than they actually are so that normal human beings will like them.

Savannah Guthrie: Our first question is for Senator Elizabeth Warren. Senator Warren, you have many plans for America. Many, many plans. Is this correct?

Elizabeth Warren: Yes that is correct. I have many plans to make things better, and Americans must come together and work together as Americans to make America America.

Savannah Guthrie: Thank you. Congressman O'Rourke, how do you feel about taxing the wealthy?

Beto O'Rourke: Me gustaría informar a todos que puedo hablar español.

Savannah Guthrie: Uhh... Okay?

Cory Booker: Hey I can speak Spanish too!

Savannah Guthrie: Yes, yes you both can speak Spanish. This next question is for Senator Warren. Senator, you have many plans for America. Do you think rich people should be allowed to feast on the flesh of poor people?

Elizabeth Warren: No. We should stop allowing rich people to eat poor people because there are laws against this and my plan is to enforce those laws.

Julia'n Castro: I can actually speak Spanish better than anyone here, so I pretty much win this debate.

Cory Booker: Yeah well I live in a poor neighborhood.

John Delaney: Well I think --

Lester Holt: You shut your whore mouth, Delaney. Senator Warren, we haven't heard from you in a while. You've got lots of plans for America. Do you believe every American should have healthcare?

Elizabeth Warren: Yes, every American should be allowed to have healthcare.

One exception or perhaps addition to my above comment: I am subscribed to Save America: Vote for Tulsi Gabbard, hosted by a fellow who I only know as Dave. He's a former Trump advocate, long since Trump Dumper, thinks for himself (as in saw through Clinton's endless wars and imo is well grounded ethically), and articulates his ideas well. He does amazing work following and analyzing what Tulsi comes out with; here is one example after the first "debates," this Thursday morning, titled Tulsi Gabbard Rocks The Debate Stage Blasting Endless Wars.

I encourage you watch the 23 minute video and decide for yourself, or at least "jump through it." click here

Like the debates, I could not read this whole article. It made me want to puke. Thanks Caitlin, great parody of a disgusting imitation of democracy at work, US style.

P.S. Did they ask Tulsi why she is colluding with Putin, and why she approves of Assad using chemical weapons on his own people, and if it bothers her that the families of 'fallen' brave soldiers hate her?

The chemical weapons thing was never proven, like the recent oil tanker attacks, the downing of the provocative drone that could have made those attacks, or the supposed Uranium Yellow Cake from Nigeria and Hussein's nuclear program. I never heard military families hate Tulsi, but she makes a good case, as far as I have read and seen her, for taking it all with a grain of salt. Would you like to back that statement up with sources?

My impression is he intended it as sarcasm. This is how the MSM keeps attacking her stance against endless wars. I was afraid she would be left out of the debates altogether. "They" (the people who determine who the candidates in the US will be) made the mistake last time of letting a candidate slip through who at least claimed to want to stop America's wars. A lot of people I know voted for him for that and that alone.

I encourage you to watch the link I posted just above. And though I didn't mute it, I sure as hell saw the body language that Dave (?) talks about in it. A Commander-in-Chief, if ever there was one.

I watched maybe 15 min of it over the 2 hours.

I heard a lot of blah, blah, blah, as expected.

And tonight we will hear even more with Biden and his corporate love diatribes.

The biggest point I took away from it is that any person who wants to keep for-profit, parasitic health insurance intact should be removed from contention. As long as they exist we will never have true universal health CARE, but continue to be nothing but a health insurance support system.

Does anyone know why it has taken so long to start the non-debates? If you think about it, there are only 495 days left until the election! With so many candidates I am not sure there is enough time left for me to figure out who not to vote for.

I was not able to watch and listen last night to what Caitlin describes as a riveting mock-debate that I am sure would have kept me glued to my tv if I had one. I will have to see if there is a copy of the pretend debate online. If so, I will mute the video and pay attention only to body language. Body language is where its at no matter what anybody says. Body language tells it so well who a person is and what they think.

Time is running out. I hope there is at least one sham-debate per week from now until the election. From what Caitlin said, last night sounds like it was better than most soap operas.

Actually, I just changed my mind. I think I have better things to do than watch the non-debates. Does it really matter who gets elected? I think not. When was the last time any significant legislation was passed that was of the people, by the people and for the people? When was the last time any significant legislation was passed by the politicians we vote into office that was of the people, by the people and for the people?

"There is a de facto 'secret government' operating nationally and internationally and involved in the highest circles of the US government, exercising an impact over domestic policies and economics ranging between extreme influence to, at times, outright control. This extreme influence to outright control naturally includes the Presidency. The de facto 'secret government,' much of whose intellectual - and financial - muscle are to be found in the New York office of the CFR, the great tax-free foundations, and certain international firms and corporations." - Mike Culbert: article in the Independent-Gazette published in Richmond, California on June 27, 1974 in reference to his discussions with Charles Colson (a member of Nixon's cabinet) on the almost total control of US presidents by the outside forces. (1974)

I watched the video. Thanks. Tulsi came across really well in the clip.

There was talk of the Trillions of dollars being spent on wars half way around the world. When I talk of those trillions of dollars I like to point out that those trillions of dollars are for undeclared, illegal wars, based on lies.

When I hear someone say they are upset by a few people taking advantage of things like welfare and food stamps I ask them, what do you think of the big Corporations that take advantage of our tax system to avoid paying a lot of taxes? What do you think of the many trillions of dollars that seem to disappear and cannot be accounted for? What do you think of the TRILLIONS of dollars we spend on undeclared, illegal wars, based on lies, halfway around the world where we have killed and maimed millions of men, women, children and also, unborn fetuses too? Does that bother you? If you have not noticed, that is where the real money is.

I thought it was all too predictable and my internet was down here in Costa Rica anyway; but this was hilarious. HILARIOUS!

At the moment I'm a Pete Buttegieg-Tulsi Gabbard fan. But what I think they should do is form a Cabinet, pick a President as one of the bunch, and RUN AS A TEAM. Pool their resources, share the campaign trail and cover more territory, take positions that match their concerns, and run right over the GOP.

I do t understa d why the news peoe ha e to moderate these things. Nothing but a big extravaganza for them. Lets get some engineers and climate scientists and thougtful folks to not only moderate but to organize them in a way that allows people to really learn something. As George Carlin says "It's all BS and it's bad for ya".

I felt Tulsi had all the cards stacked against her and in light of that did a good job. The few questions she was asked to respond to were those the paid for media has been smearing her with all along. When she did make a good point there was always a true blue bought and paid for centrist to attempt to put her down Ryan and Booker come to mind. Actually, I felt they made her look better than they, especially Ryan who came off as a thug and Booker who obviously did as he was instructed but proved he didn't listen to what Tulsi had said regarding her willingness to put her life on the line for the LBGTQs in the military. IMHO she does need to get more intuned to economic aspects, but I fee her presence is more "presidential" than the others. Warren has to almost shout when she gets a point across as do others. Tulsi comes off "matter of factly" and more believable.

Thank you Caitlin. I wouldn't have watched this circus if you paid me just as I won't be watching circus ll tonight. It's all a canard to keep us distracted from the theft of our sovereign rights as citizens and what's left of our material wealth.

We are in the grip of a global corporate oligarchy that has no intention of loosening its grip. We are going to have join the rest of humanity that is already in the streets confronting these ba$tard$. Shut the system down!

Or we could just laugh in their faces every chance we get. An interspersed crowd with canned laughter on their phones would do.

And dance in the streets as often as possible.

Just smile a lot at others. The powers-that-be David Watts speaks about Absolutely HATE happy humans.

Hey! They can't catch us all; jail us all; or kill us all. Hmm?

I speak about absolutely hate happy humans? I hadn't thought about it like that but, you should know. :)

I know I talk about "heads-in-the-sand-humans," and they like it that way; they would rather not know. And to be honest, I can't blame many of them. It is no fun knowing a lot of what is simmering below the surface. It is no fun knowing of the evil they can do nothing about. But I wish they did know of the evils if for no other reason than if a revolution started, they would know which side to be on.

Oh, I missed your point. It is the powers-that-be that are the "hate happy humans."

A revolution would not work anyway. They have different ways to stop a revolution. But I like your idea. Maybe instead of a revolution, we can get everybody dancing in the streets. Everyone would have fun and enjoy themselves ... At least until things start to really come down.

I like Caitlin's parody, but I listened to most of it and didn't feel so pessimistic. People are payng lip service at least to far more progressive positions than 4 years ago. For example, "Medicare for all" got Bernie branded as a socialist, but last night it was the most popular position in the room. The fact that everyone is talking about domestic economic issues from the perspective of wealth distribution suggests that Bernie has really pulled the party to the left. The fact that no one but Tulsi said a word for peace probably indicates Bernie's being AWOL on this issue.
