Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders Draw Largest Iowa Crowd of Democratic Primary So Far with Call for 'Solidarity' Over Unity

Isn’t that disgusting? AOC is too young, but Alzheimer’s-addled Reagan and Trumpytard get put in without a thought to the damage they could/did/are doing to our country!

The Trumpers don’t just hate Bernie, they hate all of us who care about the biosphere, reproductive rights, corporate/individual greed, wealth gap, war crimes, militarism, ethics, secularism, etc.

I’d rather see us rally around programs that are good for “the people.”

So you prefer populism to socialism.

I think it more likely the trumpwaffen will be initiating a purge.

Or simply just ignored until it disappears.

I read a few years back that CNN was “owned” by the dnc insiders, much like Fox is owned by the other wing. I didn’t put much faith in the story at the time, but since then it’s looking more and more like the writer was correct.
With the black box voting, I view our only way out of this shit show we call American elections, is to overwhelm the dnc with votes for Sanders, making it very obvious to the average voter if they try to steal the primary again from him.

Unfortunately I think we need the media, like it was under people like Cronkite and Morrow. Not like it has been for the past 20-30 years

You ever visit Michigan’s Leelenau and Mission Peninsulas?

Highly recommended if you make another fall colors run. I can suggest an itinerary if you’re interested.

Well, I’ve never been to Michigan.

Perhaps next fall I’ll ask for that itinerary Tank.

Nice of you to offer.

You’re a peach.

But how would you get it there?

A pleasure to read this news report of Bernie and AOC at the Climate Crisis Summit in Des Moines yesterday, and seeing many positive comments here.

Earlier today Bernie campaigned in the reddest area in the state, in Orange City in NW Iowa. I watched some of his town hall on a Facebook live video. He looked good, and the reception he received was warm.

It is heartening that it’s possible to turn off corporate media, and watch Bernie rallies on Fbook and Youtube, as I have been watching lately.

Bernie appears to steadily move forward in Iowa, and with activist Ady Barkan I’m encouraged, “I am hopeful because right now there is a mass movement of people from all over this country rising up.”

Iowa has less then 4 percent of its population as Black Americans maning in a room of 2400 less then 100 would be black.

The crack pot Media is always talking about moderates. How many of those are there ? Lol. Bastards !

yea, Dunno.
But that is the problem. It is useless and will never work the way it is

I suggest we step back from the emotional highs and lows of the “horse race” for a bit. Elizabeth Vos has a very good program on the DNC at consortium news

She and her colleagues/guests dig deep into the 2016 election and lay out lots of detail about what happened as well as our current position one year from another presidential election.
To summarize her report, the 2016 election was rigged. The 2020 election will also be rigged. What will Bernie do about it? Most important-- what will we do?

When I present the dictionary definition of ‘liberal’ (liberty + equality) and ask which they object to, it shuts them down.

We MUST remain steady using precise definitions. All things being equal… truth shuts down ignorance. The establishment can’t fool all of the people all of the time.

But it will go down!

If Sanders wins, change will be easy, if Sanders doesn’t win, I doubt that electioneering changes will much matter anymore as we move into BOAKYAGB (BendOverAndKissYourAGoodBye) territory.
