LOL: Democrats Panicking Over Prospect of Having to Run With Soviet-Loving Socialist Bernie Sanders at the Top of the Ticket

Redistribution of Pain.

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ robust start in the race for the presidential nomination is triggering alarm among congressional Democrats, with many warning that a ticket headed by the self-declared socialist could be devastating to the party’s chances of winning the Senate and holding the House in November.


In anxious huddles around the Capitol, apprehensive Democrats are sharing their worries that Sanders’ socialist label and unyielding embrace of controversial proposals like “Medicare for All” and the Green New Deal will repel voters in the affluent, moderate districts that flipped House control in 2018 and in closely divided states where Republican senators are vulnerable.

It's about time someone else worried about these Wealthy White Suburban Soccer Moms.

...

Another freshman from a competitive district, Rep. Tom Malinowski, D-N.J., said Democrats need a presidential nominee who "doesn't scare all those future former Republicans more than Trump scares them." And while acknowledging that Republicans plan to tar all Democrats with the socialist label, "There's one candidate for whom that would not be a lie."

You are socialists, you just try to Con the Rubes about it.

Some Democrats say they'll triangulate against Sanders, representing themselves as staunch defenders of capitalism that you'll want and need as the last best defense against Sanders' communist dreams.

LOLGF.

But I have a feeling this will become a frequent talking point on Pierre Omidyar's Bulwark webzine.

Except they'll also support Bernie Sanders, of course.

The problem is that their YOLO approach to governance is giving the game away.

As Gandalf once said: when the plot it ripe, it remains no longer secret.

The whole "let's keep abortion safe, legal and rare" is now transparently false.

Same with "no one wants to take away your guns."

I think it will be interesting for the Dems to finally embrace their inner commies and see just how popular that really is.

44 The NT dudes will scramble up another Evan McMullan to run so they can support him and not have to defend somehow backing the Democrat nominee.

I don't know how wide spread it is, but I am getting the sesnse that this is happening for at least a few people.

They've been told their whole lives through every media, every politician, every teacher, that Republicans and conservatives are these extremist freak radical weirdos who want to put black people in chains, make every woman pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen, ban fun, and force you to bow to Jesus.

As time has gone on, and Trump has become the face of the Republican party, Youtubers, social media faces, and podcasts have demonstrated that the right is actually pretty tame and laid back for the most part, they have seen another fact:

The left is a raving bunch of extremist freaks and loons. They were able to hide it pretty well in the past, but the mask hasn't just been ripped off, but people like AOC and Sanders have torn the flesh of their face off with it and are scowling like the aliens from They Live, all raw bone and muscle and eyeballs.

And the comparison does not flatter the left.

Men in girl's changing rooms, pedophiles, letting murders go because they're illegal aliens, defending radical muslim murderers, the list goes on and on of stuff that doesn't just make people go "nah" but "WHAT THE LIVING HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU???"

I take nothing for granted. They are all Venezuela style "socialists" They can talk Denmark and Norway till they are blue. They don't know a thing about those countries and neither do their constituents. They are Cuban style, they see their enemies in fellow countrymen.

The Bernie gang up is just a ploy because he is gaining traction. 90 percent of the populace could not tell you a salient point about Buttigeg or Klobuchar. These people would say and do anything to win. If pretending to be lest socialist is advantageous at this point, then that is what they will do.

But Bernie is likely more dangerous than those two. He inspires crowds while they do not. He has a real agenda while they do not. He will well known while they are not. They are all firing on him because he is a threat to THEM, not because they want to save us from him.

Communism is collective ownership of all the means of production and goods, share and share alike with no leadership and everyone working in concert for everyone's benefit.

Socialism is top down control of the economy and means of production by the state, dictating how everything is done and owning all businesses.

The theory is it goes like this:

-EEvil capitalism
-Revolution by the masses against capitalism
-Socialism in a transition period where reeducation and restructuring eliminates the need for government. In this time period it is necessary to have an absolute government to make the changes necessary.
-Communist utopia

Butty and Kloub seem like throw aways. I realize some fear the Bloom but he is an empty suit with money. I don't see him flipping a singe state but I do see lower enthusiasm in deep blue states.

Best I can come up with, socialism is an economic theory and set of policies. Communism is a form of government. A socialist form of government.

So the challenge for socialists is to define where they stand on that point. You're not a socialist OR a communist, you either a communist socialist, or you got some other way of operating government.

And, of course, nothing like this will do anything to change the absurd attacks that will instantly accompany *any* indictments of any of the Mega-Scandal perps.

Which attacks won't have any impact anyway. The indictments will speak for themselves and there's no sign much of the public will embrace any of the silly Dem/MSM propaganda. They didn't buy Russia!, they didn't buy/care about impeachment.

Michigan State just hired a new football coach when the old one resigned. As reported by the media, the whole thing was one disaster and miscue after another.

Yet early today a story came out that showed that no, no one was taken by surprise, there was a plan and the plan actually worked.

Now *the press* didn't know the plan, so they kept raving about what a mess it was, but it wasn't a mess and the people in the know were feeling good about how it was going.

Trump knows how to operate a global enterprise. He doesn't communicate by press release.

They know their charges will get marked down by the insurance companies. Woe to you who is uninsured but actually plans on paying his bills.

There is a reason doctors were often paid with chickens, hogs, etc. They got paid with what the patient could give.

Now i realize times have changed, people live longer, and medical costs has skyrocketed. But don't discount the fact that medical insurance itself has contributed markedly to these spirally costs.

Moderates don't win. You need someone who believes in something people can follow strongly. A Moderate in the Dems is whipped so bad by the leftists that they can't show any kind of strength.

Look at even Billionaire Bloomy. He is spouting off leftist positions almost as hard as the rest of them even before they attack him. And all they will have to say is that he is a billionaire to scupper him with most of the party.

287 via Breitbart, Bernie leads in the Super Tuesday states --

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is leading the Democrat primary field in Super Tuesday states, according to a Morning Consult poll released Tuesday.

The poll, released on the same day as the New Hampshire primary, shows Sanders not only leading the Democrat primary field on a national scale but experiencing a seven-point advantage over his closest competitor in Super Tuesday states -- including Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia.

The Vermont socialist has 27 percent support in the March 3 Super Tuesday states, followed by Joe Biden (D), Michael Bloomberg (D), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Pete Buttigieg (D) with 20 percent, 16 percent, 11 percent, and ten percent, respectively.


Bernie is looking more and more likely.

Yes, it is theater, and it is a theater that has well-known rules. Just like Trump's Tweets are theater. He is not impulsive and neither are they, those tweets are calculated to get a specific message out at a select time. Not every plan will work how you want it, but stop acting like he and those around him have no goals or plans to get there.

They will take Bloomberg's money.

They will not nominate him because

(a) the party faithful will be pissed enough when they take away the nomination from Bernie, which they will; and

(b) the nomination of a billionaire, putting aside all other baggage, would piss off more people.

The Democrats are in an absolute Gordian Knot, as someone pointed out earlier.

Do people not realize that a sudden flurry of arrests of Trump's political enemies this summer could jeopardize his reelection chances?

They hate AOC because of how out there she is. It's not her policies but that she thinks her extremism will work. The current leadership is willing to make a gradual turn with occasional sharper turns. AOC want to crank it hard to port and is this a threat to the Pelosi cabal's hold on power. You're right about their psycho enthusiastic base wanting these nut jobs but others realize that there are a lot that blindly vote Dem because they seem them as center left not hardcore commie.

Rince Preebus was on TV last week, talking about this issue.

He railed on the Demos. In 2016, the Repubs made the rule that the winner of the popular vote gets all the EV for that state.

Even if the winner gets 28% of the vote, they get 100% of the EV's. Winners, losers. No split the baby stuff.

Demos chose to split all their votes proportionally, mostly, and the result insures there will be no leader, only a bunch of losers.

So the Democrats chose the brokered convention they are sure to suffer this summer. They knowingly chose it.

Worth remembering that the Founders did not want government to work efficiently because they knew what that would lead to. They wanted to force a very complex diverse group of politicians to agree on something or nothing would happen, Thus the House is the representative of the people in a "local" district; the Senate was to be the representative of the individual States as selected by their respective legislatures; and the President was to be elected by the people as a Nation, but filtered by trusted electors that were selected at the State level via the Electoral College.

The Progs effectively dismantled this Founder designed intricate path to power because the Founders KNEW they couldn't trust anyone or any faction with an easy path to power!

The "least democratic" parts of the Constitution are an intricate part of the social compact among the states. If either the EC or Senate were abolished, every state would be within its rights to leave the union.

Yeah there are legitimate reasons for electors to go against who the state votes for. Because more idiots in other states voted for the other guy isn't one of those.

In the 1940's, Harvard Medical School explicitly discriminated against women. They had records of what their graduates were doing - almost all the men were full-time physicians, but a large fraction of the women were part-time, or weren't using their degrees at all.

They wanted to train people who actually would use their medical degrees. Imagine trying to do that today, even with similar data.

I once was driving to a baseball tournament in AZ with one of my teammates, whose daughter tagged along. She'd just graduated from a tony private university - with a degree in anthropology, IIRC - but, having failed to get her MRS degree, had nothing better to do than drive out with a couple of geezers. The idea of looking for a job had not intruded upon her consciousness.

(In fairness, she was a sweetheart, and would almost certainly make a good wife and mother, but ... imagine a son in the same circumstances. The word "layabout" would probably be used.)

I imagine that the Founders didn't expect this freedom to be exercised on a whim but rather at the direction of the State Government. There was a very long time between the election and the inauguration prior to the 20th Amendment. The Inauguration was originally in March. Plenty of time for a State Legislature to decide that there was no much fraud in an election, as an example, that they would change the result.

And why is this, you ask? I can tell you: because they've been accustomed to being taken care of all of their lives. First it was Dad, then it was hubby, eventually it'll be a son. The idea of having to look out for themselves never occurs to many of them.

Evidence? Your car won't start. If you're male, that's your problem. Men expect other men to take care of business. If you're female, you can expect that men will come to your aid, and make the problem go away.

The obverse side of this coin is that women are vulnerable where men are not (not so much, anyway).

Now I have no problem with the chivalric approach, and indeed whole-heartedly subscribe to it, and have helped any number of women in distress. But it makes such women not do the calculations of where their interests lie.

467 Listen up, people:

DON"T THROW AWAY YOUR OLD COMPUTING DEVICES.

Destroy them instead.

Here's why:

I just cam back from taking a trip to the local "dump" (not really a "dump" anymore, but instead a recycling/compost/sorting/"transfer station" that used to be the dump before it got all "greenwashed").

Anyway, a favorite pastime of everyone is to pick through the castoffs of everyone else before the employees get to it or shoo you away. Half the time, someone will come, unload their junk, then notice sometime interesting unloaded by someone else, and end up taking it home.

Anyway, that's what happened to me. Unloaded y junk, then saw that some previous person had discard this shiny white box with an Apple logo on it -- seemed to be in pristine condition.

Not even know what it was, I nabbed it and brought it home.

Turns out, after a bit of research, to be a 3-terabyte Apple "Time Capsule" device, which is a combination Internet router (supplying wifi -- superfast) and 3-terabyte wireless backup drive. (Costs $500 new!)

I could see than the previous owner had frequently jabbed a leaky-ink ballpount pen tip into the "reset" hole, indiscating that he was frantically trying to fix it, which means it was broken. He apparnetly gave up, and junked it.

But I am not one to give up so easily, and in 20 minutes had tracked down the instructions for how to reset it to factory settings. At first the thing was indeed broken, but after doing the reset steps -- bingo, it came back to life! Set it up with the Internet connection, and bingo -- now I've got faster stronger wifi!

AND THEN...I saw that the previous owner's backed-up computer hard drive WAS STILL ON THE 3-TERABYTE DRIVE.

So now I have

-- all his banking information
-- all his personal photos
-- everything about everything in his life
-- etc.

Unfortunately. he seemed to be a pretty boring dude, but if I was an ehtical person, I could do all sorts of "identity theft" shenanigans. Of course I'm not a criminal, so I would never do such a thing, but the guy just got lucky it wa sme who found -- most of the people rummaging around at the dump ARE probably criminals.

Moral of the story, to repeat:

DON"T THROW AWAY YOUR OLD COMPUTING DEVICES.

Destroy them instead.

Because to them it is not about the ability to earn a good wage or even to the possibility to learn something you could not anywhere else- it is about social status of the degree.

IU had a 14 floor research side to the university library. 14 floors. Freshman year I would just pick a floor in the elevator and just wander around. On one floor I found a section with maps. Huge maps. There was one gigantic one of Europe (each plate was around 20x20 and there were 16 or so plates.) But I digress.

It was virtually empty, all 14 floors. And this was in '93-'94. Nowadays with the internet, I bet it is a ghost town, complete with tumbleweeds.

Now, admittedly, once i started going out and drinking and well, just women, I stopped going as much, but it was still not something I would want to have missed out on.

Yeah when I went back to school (admittedly later in life) I spent a lot of time in the library looking at stuff. They had archives down in the basement that had all kinds of cool stuff, like diaries and journals from pioneers. There wasn't anyone down there looking at it back then either (other than me).

Eh. Those elections make a lot more sense in hindsight regarding his clearly excrement-like opponents. And the second time, he was the incumbent.

One day Trump will be looked back upon as one of the great *politicians* of all time. He is going to lay waste to whoever it is. It's going to difficult to watch at times.

Take the hard drives apart. Aside from needing a special screwdriver, which is a buck or two at Harbor Freight, it is easy. There is a nice strong rare earth magnet in there that is worth keeping. Once you get the platter out of the hard drive. Heating it red hot should wipe any magnetism from it, or else take a disc grinder to it, and rough up both surfaces harshly. Or drill a lot of holes.

Y'know, the thing that really scares me right now is that if Bernie gets the nomination, I expect that the DNC is going to seriously consider whacking him out in public, and blaming Trump and us conservatives. The only thing that might restrain their hand is the prospect of being caught. But even that isn't much of a danger to them, because the MFM will run interference.

Posted by: Don Q at February 13, 2020 08:55 PM (NgKpN)

This has been my problem with this whole DOJ wayward thing - Bill Barr, nor ABC, nor you nor I are the CLEO of the US - its DJ Trump whether that makes anyone upset or not...the DOJ is NOT constitutionally independent of the Executive, period. They are the same. If Trump wants to risk getting unelected by prosecuting political enemies that the DOJ has determined have committed crimes, hey, its his party, he's paying for it - too bad for everyone else, including Bill. He can resign or do his job. A job defined by the guy he just said on national TV makes it "hard on him."

I get the politics involved, but at some point if the President is pissed that the DOJ is a fucked up clown car - then he has every right to tell ANY f-ing person he wants his opinion and the DOJ had better listen.

693 Dumb question, I know, but why, exactly are the Democrats allowing a Communist who identifies as an Independent to compete in their primaries?

697 The coronavirus outbreak has exposed the United States' dangerous dependence on China for pharmaceutical and medical supplies, including an estimated 97 percent of all antibiotics and 80 percent of the active pharmaceutical ingredients needed to produce drugs in the United States.

There are a great many things that we need to cut the fuck out.

According to a recent report by the US Food and Drug Administration, China is home to approximately 13% of the 1,788 facilities that manufacture APIs for drugs marketed in the US.

708 We should be fine, if we reroute out supply chains away from China.
Already India is 18%, the EU is 26%, the US is 28%, Canada is 2%, and th rest of the world is 13% of the 1,788 facilities that manufacture APIs for drugs marketed in the US.

Bernie's more hardcore supporters are guaranteed to lose their collective shit no matter what happens. They're not in it for an election. They could give a shit about elections. They're old school Bolshevik extremists and they're in it for a revolution. They want gulags and fascists against the wall, where 'fascists' = 'anyone they don't like'.

711 I keep thinking Bernie knows he can't beat Trump and really does not want to try. I think he is taking it as close to the convention as he can, withdraws for 'health' reasons then buys homes four and five with money from no known source.

Personally, I am hoping the DNC steals it from Bernie again because the Bernie-Bros will go nuts and at least 20% of the Democrats would not vote or try to go third party. Slow Joe is already wilting under the pressure of the Democratic nomination, in the real deal, I think he would go full 'Scanners'.

But Bloomberg...now Bloomberg will get "It" done! He does not bother telling us what "It" is but rest assured, whatever "It" is, he will get "It" done. In fact, his commercials use the word "It" so much, you would think he was battling the Knights of Ni.

712 Next they need to look into what will happen if they choose Mayor Pete, who grew up with a father whose life was dedicated to writing fawningly over Marxist trash, as you said all of these candidates are communist, and the best thing would be to make sure everyone knows it's what they believe.

Does anyone else think that Donald Trump talks to his people on a regular basis, or am I the only one? Because there are times from the comments I get this idea that none of these people communicate with each other, pick up the phone, have aides do that, you know - talk. The impression I get is people think everyone else - Trump, cabinet secretaries, senators - exist in silos and only communicate with each other through slams in the press.

And that just doesn't sound realistic at all.

Well, that's the impression that the MFM and the Dems have been pushing since day 1....Trump is brooding in his office barking out ridiculous commands and orders (or Tweeting them) while his harried staff desperately tries to deal with the fallout.
