Bernie Sanders Drops Out to Give Nomination to Senile Racist Credibly Accused of Rape

Cowardly old goat.

A friend of mine says that Bernie is just "controlled opposition" -- a Socialist alternative who is controlled by the Democrat Establishment to make sure that Socialists remain in the party.

That's why Bernie Sanders refuses to ever damage a Democrat front-runner.

And that's why, my friend says, Alexandria Donkey-Chompers stopped supporting him a month and a half ago -- she got upset at his relentless unwillingness to ever take a shot at the Democrat establishment.

Sounds like a good theory -- except that part about Alexandria Donkey-Chompers figuring something out.

That's preposterous.

Sen. Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign on Wednesday, clearing Joe Biden's path to the Democratic nomination and a showdown with President Donald Trump in November.

Sanders made the announcement in a call with his campaign staff, his campaign said.

Sanders' exit caps a stunning reversal of fortune following a strong performance in the first three states that voted in February. The nomination appeared his for the taking until, on the last day of February, Biden surged to a blowout victory in South Carolina that set off a consolidation of moderate voters around the former vice president. The contest ends now as the country continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, which halted in-person campaigning for both Sanders and Biden and has led many states to delay their primary elections.

Bernie Sanders had hinted he would drop out of the race if he did poorly in Wisconsin, a state he had won in 2016 by 15 points.

Wisconsin isn't reporting the results of its primary yet; results aren't expected until the 14th. But maybe Sanders got wind of the results from bellwether precincts.

I think this is part of it. But also he can continue to push the very far totalitarian (or whatever you want to call it) leftish ideas. He can spread the propaganda with ease, while making a ton of money for the DNC.

It's one big game.

That is why I called him the MSNBC of the MSM. He is garbage promoting the propaganda, but would never survive without the help of the Democrats.

14 Now the real primary starts: Biden vs. the DNC. Whatever they think is easier to get away with they'll do. Either hide Biden until the election is over, or get him to drop out and nominate someone not liable to swing at someone at a campaign appearance. Or drop his pants at a debate.

That was Bernie's plan A. Stay in the race long enough for Biden to freeze up, and win by default. Bernie didn't count on Warren staying in as long as she did, holding back female Leftists which cost him crucial delegates and early momentum.

Bernie's plan B was to collect more grift and maybe another dacha.

Listening to local conservative radio host this morning who has several contacts on both sides of aisle saying the WI election fiasco was a pure Democrat Op.

They wanted chaos. Perez and the Dem's are pushing for mail-in ballot fraud...oops, I mean elections for this fall and wanted to hold up WI as a prime example of why it was needed. Only 19,000 voted in person yesterday in Milwaukee.

What the complicit press is not reporting is that voting went smoothly over the entire state except for Milwaukee. Only 5 polling stations opened for the entire city of Milwaukee instead of the normal 180! Even liberal Madison had over 60 polling stations open.

There were well over 1 million absentee ballots sent out and almost 80% returned. So this is what I think happened:

They knew the vote totals of the absentee ballots and had a pretty good idea who was going to win the races. That's why Evers held off so long. They needed the counts.

The most important race on the ballot was the Supreme Court seat so I'm guessing it wasn't a close race either way or they would have had more polling stations open in Milwaukee.

If you know any ONGYNs, the same holds true for these doctors as over half in the area have CCP -Lung AIDS.

Also, Trump if you want to send a medical navy ship where it's needed, we need one in the Gulf. You know the area of the poors, the unwashed, the rurals, and the area where ObamaCare destroyed the hospitals and health care facilities. Would be nice....

This won't work out very well. It will work some. Anyone who has been paying attention know that his "plans" he's talked about so far have been 80% aping Trump and 20% deferring to experts in international organizations.

Assume you're going to lose to Trump.

Who do you put up there in an effort to maintain the status quo within the party?

Joe's a good candidate for that. He's establishment so that when he gets the nomination those around him will populate the party apparatus in a new wave of hires. Establishment keeps control of the party. Probably strengthening it, really, since they actually gave up a fair amount to the activist left after 2016 in a panic move.

272 So how does Cuomo become the nominee when Biden of Drool Cup has the Delegates? How does this work without an existential event in Biden's near future? There is no way Biden could figure out how to hang himself with the bed sheets.
Posted by: Puddin Head at April 08, 2020 12:24 PM (y2XMN)


Biden will withdraw for health reasons in late August/Early September. The DNC will hold an emergency meeting and announce that Cuomo is the nominee. The VP nominee will back them. This gives Cuomo two months to campaign, with a cheering media supporting him, as well as gives the DNC time to prep the battlefield.

Dem governors and Sec States will immediately move to replace Biden's name on the ballot. The threat will be that if Republican states refuse to do likewise, the election will be illegitimate. If any challenge goes to SCOTUS a month out from the election or later, the argument will be "we don't have time to change the ballots now".

I actually think down ballot's going to be really bad for them this year. Maybe not as bad as a Bernie candidacy would have been, but still bad.

Down ballots are at least partially determined by the overall excitement of the party, and that's largely driven by excitement for the presidential race. A loopy old man rapist racist isn't going to incite a lot of enthusiasm from the base, especially the ones without jobs who go to every protest and have weekdays available to knock on doors for GOTV efforts.

Trump has been doing business in NY for decades. He's got dirt on every NY politician, likely.

If he NEEDS to use any of it, he will not hesitate.

And NeverTrumpers are such a potent electoral force that they prevented Trump from becoming president by supporting the black horse candidacy of a McDonald's breakfast sandwich.

361 I guess I don't share in the optimism that Trump is a shoo-in with Biden. I think Biden is incredibly weak, but we don't have the same America we did in 1984. We used to be a center-right nation, now I think it's maybe more center-left and you have to overcome a lot to beat even a drooling idiot with a (D) after their name.

I hope I'm wrong and it really is Dole 2.0 without the war record and dry sense of humor.

362 @NolteNC

While thousands of Americans die, Joe Biden is running his own little political black market on critical coronavirus resources.

https://tinyurl.com/sk994g8

In the early hours of Monday morning, Joe Biden's campaign sent an email to state leaders offering to connect them with desperately needed coronavirus resources.

[A] senior adviser in one governor's office who received the email said the Biden campaign was making their jobs "really difficult" by operating outside of the federal process and by refusing to engage with the administration's efforts.

"It actually makes our job harder. We have a process in place for deploying and acquiring resources, as well as engaging in missions," the source said.

Yeah, she's got a shit ton of problems, too, but ... she's been out of the limelight for several years now, so people have forgotten about those problems, she has name recognition, and she came closer to winning in 2016 than I would like.

The normal flu hit early this year, I read. So on top of those deaths will be these. Sad for the elderly who thought they were safe, or who had the old flu shot and were inflicted with this one.

Contacted her again, getting the same deal on the next size up, and it's once again all I'll need when she gets to that size.

Awesome! Told the lady whenever we meet up, I'll take her to lunch for saving me a shitload of money.

Then, on a lark (because we'll need diapers in a couple more weeks and the stores are picked clean), she went looking for those. From two sellers within a few blocks of our home, she got 185 size-1 diapers for... $15.

447 Ace, ever seen the 1970s Robert Redford film "The Candidate"? It's on EXACTLY this topic.

The plot is, basically: Redford plays a far-left professor, and gets recruited by honchos in the Democratic Party to run for Senate or Governor (I forget which). Fully realizing that as a no-name he has little chance of ever winning, he asks in one crucial scene, "Why are you recruiting ME of all people?" And the tell him: Because you're supposed to lose. We want someone to make it LOOK like we care and that we're radical and so on -- but in reality, we prefer to opposing candiate. So we'll put you p as a sacrificial lamb.

The honcho were supposed to represent the Democratic Deep State, which (in Redford's script) always engage in Failure Theater.

Of course the thrilling finale is that he refuses to play their game - -he accepts the nomination, this disobeys them by trying to WIN! Exciting!

But it was a pretty good depiction of how Failure Theater works on the Left AND on the Right.

I doubt even that asumption.

Tested cased for flu, according to the CDC, is 250,000+. Of course we dont regularly test for flu. CDC *estimates* for this years flu is..... 39 MILLION..... for a disease we have some degree of herd immunity AND vaccinate for.

So far .... the "flu" is far more contagious than COVID.... according to just teh data.

Also..... On a closed environment like a cruise ship.... when every body is supposed to be shedding viruses like a mofo while being assymptomatic.... the infection rate was..... 30%.

Sorry.... but I dont believe a single thing about what we're being told about COVID.

Yes... there are risks.... yes its a killer. But I truly wish the powers that be stop lying to us about and covering their asses in hindsight.

I think the problem is the opposite.

The infectiousness is being wildly understated. Way more people have it than reported because testing is directed at those with serious enough symptoms to show up at a hospital and ask for it.

I think a whole lot more people have it, but testing isn't designed to capture the asymptomatic.

Posted by: JoeF. at April 08, 2020 12:49 PM (CqE5x)

I watched a Sargon video about a John King interview on CNN with Van Jones and two women "of color". After the black woman talked about structural and generational racism, Van Jones said black people need to stay inside if they are taking any pills (that is how he suggested explaining what pre-existing conditions means) and take care of themselves. The message of personal responsibility was surprising and refreshing and tells me he actually cares what happens to black people during this pandemic.

The Latina then proceeded to talk about how and why ethnicity and race information isn't being collected consistently, which is an interesting point but doesn't solve the problem of disproportionately high deaths among African Americans.

That can't be right. Monday of last week, Birx said that the barest minimum of deaths, if we did all the the mitigations they demanded, was 100k to 250k. Two days later she bitched about signs we weren't complying adequately. We spent all day yesterday talking about urban noncompliance (precisely the people whose population density made mitigation most important).

One can only reasonably conclude that there must be at least a quarter million deaths coming, if government projections have any value.

He'd still shoot thousands of us in the back of the neck and kick our body into a mass grave if he thought he could get away with it. It's just that unlike the rest of his fellow travelers, PTSD would kick in and he'd lose a few nights' sleep over it.

remove it. Gee, who'd believe the experts would not tell us the ENTIRE
mask operating instructions?




I prepared a bucket of water and detergent before I leave the house and also leave the door from the house to the garage open (I am one of the rare people who actually park in their garage). I also leave open all the doors leading to the bathroom where the bucket is.

When I get back home, I walk through all the open doors, remove the cloth mask and swish it through the detergent/water and then hand wash it. Soap/detergent kills the virus.

True, but we have hundreds of years of data on flu deaths and only a couple months on Wuhan Flu, so its difficult to say. All you can say is that there's a lot more from regular flu than this stuff, and that makes it VERY difficult to trust that it was necessary to do all this and destroy the economy.

You can still shed virus after you're over it for 36 days.

I would like to know the numbers of the over 65's that have got it and died. and who got it and lived.

They're lumping a lot of cases together and reporting all the deaths without differentiating them.

If the folks really at risk are the over 60's say, I who am one would gladly mask up etc so you all could get back to work cause I'm getting scared that some of these assholes are going to try to take over the gov't and we'll all be in trouble.

For the conspiracy folks out there, there are about 40 million older folks. If 20percent died from virus, the gov't would see a savings of about 9 trillion in future medical costs.

That's given that each person over 65 uses an average of about 1 million in health care over the rest of their life.

He strode through the hall, so handsome and strong.

He had dodgy hair and his smile was his gums,

But delegates there mostly thought he looked fun.

ladies' hair wherever he went,

The hearts of the girls were to Hell, broken, sent.

They all quit the Dems so nobody would know,

And left only men 'cause of Bleedin'-Eye Joe.

625 the problem is just that often they don't take them consistently

it's their unmanaged chronic conditions that are making them susceptible

I hope they are now being a lot more serious about following dr instructions re meds
Posted by: THE_BlackOrchid_STATE! at April 08, 2020 12:59 PM (j9HX3)

He was saying "people who are taking pills" as a way for people to identify if they have preexisting conditions. Implied in his comments was that 1) black folks are getting infected because of behavior, e.g., lack of social distancing and 2) black Americans tend to be unhealthier than the average person. Both will lead to higher infection and mortality rates.

I bet if they analyzed data by income level/socioeconomic class, they will have similar findings across the board.

Wilson does great remasters.

His rework of "Tales from Topographic Oceans" is BEAUTIFUL!

I haven't checked out his "Aqualung," because I've already blown money on 3 different "definitive versions." Which all sucked.

When this is all over, we'll be able to tease out all these hypotheses about what's going on. Unfortunately, we have to wait until it's all over.

At that point, we can look at the actual overall mortality rate. If you see a spike in that, that tells you how much WuFlu increased it. And, if you then see that overall rate come down, you can say aha, that just killed off people who were going to soon die anyway.

You'll be able to see from this if they just shifted more "regular, expected" deaths to WuFlu or not, etc, etc, etc.

But again, we have to wait to get this data. A wait months.

Funny how that can happen. Sometimes you can do everything the same on a subsequent album and it sounds totally different. The example I always go back to is Judas Priest.

Screaming for Vengeance was their biggest album to date, great sounding album. So they reproduced the process for the follow-up, Defenders of the Faith, recording in Ibiza with Tom Allom etc. But the album turned out to be muddy and indistinct in comparison. Really disappointing, to my ear.

There are a lot of rumors, falsehoods, debunked oddities, and quite a bit of confusion flying around out there about this virus which is driving a lot of the trouble.

How long does it last on a dry surface? This question alone has like 5 answers, depending on what study and how long ago you look. How long are you infectious? Again, depends on when you got your answer or what study you look at.

And the news has been incredibly ... irresponsible at best... in informing people about all this. I mean they always have been, but in this case its driving terror and hysteria.

694 "Flu levels" everyone cites to dismiss this bug are - hold on - probably just as chock full of "comorbidities" as the Wuhan numbers. Have not looked that hard, but a quick check turned up the little factoid that 90% of "flu deaths" in Canada in the 2018-2019 season had comorbidities.

I know logic and common sense are for cranks, but waving away Wuhan deaths by comparing to flu #s, because of underlying conditions of those who die, is almost surely pretty stupid.

Which doesn't answer any of the other questions or resolve any of the other issues here.
Posted by: rhomboid at April 08, 2020 01:06 PM (El6T/)

Well, that's the entire point: deaths attributed to influenza nearly all have underlying conditions. Sure, there are always a few young, healthy people who catch it and spiral down to death in a very short time, but they are way out on the tail of the curve.

We have come to expect that with 'flu, and basically tolerate it, as 'flu comes around every year, and we cannot shut down the world to deal with it.

Along comes this new disease, that basically acts in the same manner as 'flu, and we suddenly go into panic mode?

This is a new crisis. I doubt anyone has figured out all the answers. We are still learning and will make mistakes.

If we can find therapies to treat and prevent the virus, (and also use the developed methodologies in future pandemics), that would go a long way in allowing us to lead more normal lives during future outbreaks.

To be fair, we didn't know how this affected people a month ago, and we still have an unclear picture.

The longer this goes on, it looks more and more to me like it's going to have overall effects similar to the flu, but because there were so many unknowns early, the panic wasn't 100% unwarranted. I do think it's way overblown, by the way.

Still, with that being said, we're past the point where anyone should think this is going to have a massive effect on the country that outweighs the flu significantly. It's time to start rolling stuff back.

754 AOP, no, but I'll only kill a few more electrons and then resume my earlier distancing, as there's no point.

One of the zillion reasons to dismiss Wuhan deaths offered here every 30 seconds is that "aha! See, they're people with other conditions, they would have died anyway!!"

(leaving aside how uselessly generic and dumb *that* separate assertion is)

Then, in the next breath, flu numbers are cited to pooh-pooh the potential menace of the new bug.

Just pointing out that comorbidities are not a debunking of Wuhan numbers in themselves, especially if one is also pointing to flu numbers as a baseline to conclude "no big deal".

"Along comes this new disease, that basically acts in the same manner as 'flu, and we suddenly go into panic mode?"

If the new disease acted the same manner as flu - i.e., was known to do so, and this was known in December/January - then the explanations for the world-wide response (starting with China killing doctors and welding people into apartments) oughta be a doozy.

Could be it *was* just a nasty flu strain equivalent. As publius noted way up, insights like this are almost always only possible in retrospect, when you have lots of info, and better info.

I don't think the observed behavior of the bug early on looked just like flu, or that the concern about a catastrophic pandemic was frivolous or baseless. But it could have been wrong. Or it could have been a combo of partly wrong, and partly amenable to the radical mitigation we've seen.
