John Kerry who?? Really, who gives a fuck what Kerry says, although he was a better SOS than Hillary who went on a 2 yr Hillary for President tour as SOS and basically did nothing else. Bernie Sanders is the real deal and has been since he was mayor of Burlington VT and has proved It time after time in votes in both the House and Senate. He is a true believer and if he wants a policy or program he will get it or go out on the road as President and die trying.

Bernie Sanders, “the real deal”!!

Bernie needs to have a smart, tough, yet sympathetic response to ByeDone’s inevitable mention of his son’s service in Iraq.

Something like “In a Sanders Administration, parents would spend less sleepless nights worrying about their sons and daughters serving in harm’s way after their government lied them into another unwinnable war. And while we’re on the topic, they’d sleep better knowing they had access to health care, too, Joe.”

Right now Bernie’s campaign is in need of funds as Iowa is being blanketed by Buttigieg TV ads.

Let’s get Bernie over the top!

Weaver’s statement came in response to Biden surrogate and former Secretary of State John Kerry’s Friday claim that while Biden voted to authorize the Iraq War, it was not a vote “for” the war.

WOW! If that statement by Kerry is not Orwellian doublespeak, then I do not know what is!

The John Kerry of Winter Soldier fame is long gone, having been replaced years ago by a corporate neoliberal changeling. He can be safely ignored.

John Kerry. The patrician milquetoast loser who was thumped by an AWOL, cocaine-snorting drunk in 2004. THAT John Kerry? LOLOLOL

“Kerry, at the time a senator from Massachusetts, also voted for the war.”

WTF happened to this guy since his anti-war, progressive days?!

Given the fact that the mainstream media was also supporting war on Iraq and cheering the nation on to war do any feel they would have any interest in reporting the truth on Bidens support for the same?

So, Warren piled on to the attacks the last few days about a single staffer on Bernie’s campaign being mildly critical (and accurate) in describing her campaign’s support. Another hit piece has come out claiming that Bernie said to Warren that a woman could not win the presidency at a meeting they had last year. Warren’s camp has declined to comment, which feeds into the claim. Cause, if he didn’t say that (and of course he didn’t) and if she had integrity, she would issue a statement and would shoot that down. She is horribly manipulative and dishonest. And it is a shame that this website still largely posts supportive articles of her, especially given how problematic she is as a candidate and how horrible she is on issues like foreign policy. You notice that Bernie doesn’t do these dishonest and manipulative attacks. He has integrity and she does not. Her camp is either directly involved in the attacks or is perfectly happy to try to benefit from them, regardless as to whether the atracks are fair or accurate. It is Neera Tandel level despicable.

And Biden is a lying right wing hawk.

That’s why trump will not debate. He will have to stand shit faced, having to deny everything he has done as president, along with his typical: “Non I didn’t, you did, or I’m not the puppet you are”. Four year old speak.

Do any of you know that USA is working ultra hard to recruit army?
Trying to upgrade quality for our next middle east actions.
The current army officer corp is just terrible compared to the 1988 to 1993 group.
west point cadets selected from the congress person financial bundlers.
Leaving army very soon after graduation, without even serving four years active duty.
That is how we spend over $300,000 per cadet?

The american citizen is not going to be able to stop this coming train wreck !!

Hi Joan,
We have had previous discussions as to when the "gloves would come off and I guess it’s started. Great to see Bernie stick to policy and hit the neoliberals with their own quotes and waffling policy choices. Direct, too the point and every blow lands. They can’t hide from themselves, so they just get angry and just scream “unity at all costs” blah, blah, blah. The public gets it. The unity screams only come from thoses who can’t defend their record and just want the gravy train to continue. Tough, time to pay the piper.
As to Warren, she have become irrelevant. She had promise but now comes across as a neoliberal lackey without conviction. Her political instincts are demonstratably poor and her “woke campaign” of standard liberal cliches is near impossible to watch; that is why she is sinking in the polls. In desperation, she stoops ever lower, engaging in the classless behavior of just outright lying. What a disgrace, her reputation is in taters and she has nobody but herself to blame.

We already have an obnoxious Bullshit Artist in the White House.

We do not need a slick prevaricator continuing to mislead and deceive the American People.

What we do need is an Honest Representative that will actually represent We The People and Not the Largest Corporate Donor, what we need is:

BERNIE SANDERS - 2020
