Despite the falling snow and dropping temperatures, supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders arrived in droves to Brooklyn College in New York on March 2, 2019 for the Democratic presidential candidate’s first 2020 campaign rally.

Another point to my previous post is, we all know that the tech savvy group of intelligence can indeed break into a person's account and take it over without even being aware of it happening!

@gordyfl  Well, we all know NOW that the Russians are very good at sending their operatives in and pose as American supporters perhaps even as Americans.  Which brings us to the problem of, how in the world is an everyday American without all the privy to information on an app to tell us who is actually they proclaim to be??? These are issues we face in our everyday lives as our information anymore comes from the almighty web, no? A web with no regulations/restrictions on just how and who is privy to use such a powerful tool, no?

Just a word for all. We have heard in the last few days that Russia is still involved in trying to control our elections.  We were told they are in the Democratic primary. Today we hear how Trump is trying to control the Democratic primary to select who he wants to run against. We were even given the names of who they are after one of which has not entered the race yet. One way they want to influence the election is using social media by posting in it against the people they do not like.

In 2016 we saw what got to be a big fight between Hillary and Bernie. Hillary won and a lot of Bernie people would not vote for the winner Hillary. Some went for Jill. We now know she was supported by Russia....

"Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country." - Franklin D. Roosevelt


"We are going to build a movement of millions of Americans who are prepared to stand up and fight back. When people stand together, there is nothing that cannot be accomplished." - Bernie Sanders

Franky I don't think is going to matter if he was 10 years younger. I still believe that the policies that he speaks about will not be able to be implemented no matter what. unless you would have a full S\enate and HOuse full of Democracts. and maybe some will not like his policies and vote against  them.

Again, extremists policies will not win elections, not any more,

Bernie came to indpls, ind in 2015/2016.  enjoyed his speeches

however, i think he maybe a little too old. I guess he could make sure he

has a very young vice.  and she be a female.

 

Bernie Sanders: "I think we would look for somebody who is maybe not of the same gender that I am, and maybe someone who might be a couple of years younger than me, and somebody who can take the progressive banner as vice president and carry it all over this county to help us with our agenda, and help us to rally the American people."

 

Bernie has been in Congress long enough to know the ins-and-outs of Washington. I believe he knows how to work with Nancy Pelosi to get things done. Bernie Sanders, by the way, is a year and a half younger than Nancy Pelosi.

 

I wish Sanders was younger too, but you know we all wish we were younger.


Too bad Bernie is not the picture of health, mental stability, and genius as Trump is.

I imagine that Citizens United could be overturned by the HOuse and the Senate but that option is not going to happen soon. and I still remenber when Obama has both the HOuse and the Senate and nothing was done even then.

so I don't hold hope too much about any of this.

We are learning that many of these politicians hold their jobs too dearly and will not expose them to failure 

Bernie, alone will ot be able to accomplish most of what he is saying unless like Trump he starts by doing Executive orders. 

Bernie is not the candidate that will win in a general election. too many people see him as a solcialist even if he is not.

I am hoping that more Republicans challenge Trump and become candidates for the Republican Party and perhaps by splitting the votes will do damage to his campaign.

@gordyfl Thanks for posting....quite entertaining!

NY Times writer Maureen Dowd wrote a book containing all her articles she wrote throughout the 2016 campaign. One of them stood out. It was a fictional encounter between Elizabeth Warren and Hillary after Warren endorsed her. It was an amusing article. I thought I'd share it:


Girl Squad
By Maureen Dowd
June 11, 2016


WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton greets Elizabeth Warren in the cream-and-coral sunroom of her home on Embassy Row.
“Elizabeth, welcome,” Clinton says, smiling stiffly. “I was worried that you were lost since it was taking you so-o-o-o long to finally get here.”


“Hahaha,” Warren replies. “I’ve always heard you’re a hoot in private. I know I was the last Democratic woman in the Senate to endorse you but Bernie and I have more in common. We don’t buckrake on Wall Street. People are enthusiastic about us and believe what we say. We’re pure.”


“Pure scolds,” Hillary sniffs. “I guess it hit you, when you saw me fighting for my life against a dyspeptic 74-year-old socialist with one suit, that if you had jumped in, you could have been the first woman president.”


“Yes,” Warren muses. “I only loaned Bernie my progressive hordes. I’m the real leader of that movement.”


“Not anymore,” Hillary says.


Warren sighs. “True, my faithful are peeved at me for not running and for endorsing you instead of Bernie.”


Hillary pours herself some coffee. “I know you’re intrigued by the idea of being my vice president,” she says. “I heard you tell our gal Rachel Maddow that you’re prepared to be commander in chief. But you know I can’t put you on the ticket, don’t you?”


“Because the country isn’t ready for two wonky women for the price of one?” Warren asks dryly.


“No,” Hillary says, biting her biscotti, “I’m not ready. You, the so-called Sheriff of Wall Street, attacked me as the Shill of Wall Street. Why should you get the glass slipper when you were foot-dragging on my glass-shattering moment?”


Warren protests, “I went up against that loud, nasty, thin-skinned, mud-flinging, money-grubbing, racist, sexist, reckless, pathetic loser Trump. You were flailing around, not knowing how to take on that repugnant bully until I showed you the way on Twitter.”


“Yeah,” Hillary says sarcastically, “you’re a big help on Twitter. Trump is tweeting out video from 2004 where you’re trashing me as ‘the scary part about democracy’ for taking campaign donations from the banking industry and then voting for an anti-consumer bankruptcy bill that would have helped the credit card companies.”


Warren smiles primly, sipping her Pellegrino. “Speaking of credit, you have to give me some for this: In my last book, I left out the stuff I had in my previous one about you being an unprincipled sellout.

“You know all the Democrats want me on the ticket to add some sizzle since the crowds you draw wouldn’t even fill this couch. I know you are afraid I will overshadow you and I will. But I can help you reel in all the young women who find you more shifty than nifty. And the Bernie Bros dig me.”


“Thanks, Pocahontas,” Hillary replies, looking steely. “I can do some things on my own. I did manage to secure a spot in the Ivy League without pretending to be Native American. I hope you noticed that I’ve decorated my house in all the colors of the wind.”


Warren bristles, Church Lady-style: “You have done a fine job here, except that one painting looks crooked, Hillary. I’m surprised you don’t have oil portraits of Goldman and Sachs. And let me give you some free advice: Now that Bernie and I have forced you to address income inequality, you might want to hide that $12,495 tweed Armani jacket you wore on the trail in the back of your closet.”


The senator from Massachusetts stands up. “Where’s the bathroom?” she asks. “Can I squeeze in there with the server?”


Hillary gives that big laugh that indicates she is not amused. “No need to go on the warpath,” she says in her best Cersei manner. “Let’s bury the hatchet — in The Donald.”


Warren exhales and sits back down: “You’re right. The sisterhood has to be united in supporting the first woman leading a major ticket against the worst misogynist leading a major ticket. Can you believe Trump said he broke the glass ceiling by promoting women in construction? The only glass he knows is the mirror.


Hillary ushers her guest to the door. “We’re going to be a great girl squad,” she says, squeezing Warren’s hand. “It will be so easy to beat this airhead. Sorry to cut this short. I need to call Tim Kaine. But I will dictate a nice tweet about you.”
