Bernie Sanders Confronts CNN And Get Them To Admit Their Pro-Trump Bias

SANDERS: Well, Chris, you are going to have to ask the media precisely why. Trump is a smart guy. He is a media guy. He did a TV show. I’ll give you one example. A recent study showed that on ABC evening news Trump got 81 minutes of time. Bernie Sanders got 20 seconds. Now you tell me why. And I think it has to do with the fact that Trump is very smart.

 

He knows that media is not interest in the serious issues facing this country. They love bombastic remarks. They love silly remarks. If he says that somebody is sweating well my God, that is a major story, and all that silly business and the personal attacks that kind of works. So I think this is more an indictment of the media, actually, than it is of Trump.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Invoke Martin Luther King Jr.

On the eve of Martin Luther King’s Birthday, three black supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont sought to present his stances on race and the economy as the heir to the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Cornel West, a prominent scholar; Killer Mike, an Atlanta rapper; and the former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner praised Mr. Sanders during a 50-minute conversation with him on Sunday that was streamed live and filmed at a Marriott Hotel here. They spoke about King’s last days organizing with union workers and planning a venture he called the Poor People’s Campaign. The four went on to say that Mr. Sanders’s proposed ideas to protect the working class, break up large commercial banks, raise the minimum wage to $15 and reform police departments illustrated an extension of King’s vision.

Bernie is a nice man, but he's not electable. We need to pull in some Republican moderate votes, and they won't vote for a socialist. After the 2010 election and the gerrymandering done in the red states, it's going to get harder and harder to elect any Democrats at any level. Hillary is somewhat right of Bernie, and that makes her more likely to gather moderate Republican votes.

The Democrats MUST win this election and nominate a liberal jurist to the Supreme Court. We need a reversal of the decision on Citizens United. I'm sure Bernie would do that, and he seems like a very nice guy. If I thought he was electable, I might vote for him. I just don't believe he can be elected.

BTW, I'm new here. I'm age 74 and a moderate Democrat in California. Whoever wins, let's hope it's a Democrat. Down with the Koch brothers! smiley: tongue

Hillary Clinton Pushes Colombia Free Trade Agreement In Latest Email Dump

This administration is helping to coverup the e-mail scandal. This is the 2nd consecutive email dump just before a primary/caucus:

On the eve of South Carolina’s Democratic presidential primary, the U.S. State Department released 1,500 pages of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails from her tenure as secretary of state. Included in the 881 emails published Friday night are messages highlighting Clinton lobbying for a controversial Colombian trade deal she previously pledged to oppose.

During her 2008 presidential run, Clinton said she opposed the deal because “I am very concerned about the history of violence against trade unionists in Colombia.” She later declared, “I oppose the deal. I have spoken out against the deal, I will vote against the deal, and I will do everything I can to urge the Congress to reject the Colombia Free Trade Agreement.”

But newly released emails show that as secretary of state, Clinton was personally lobbying Democratic members of Congress to support the deal, even promising one senior lawmaker that the deal would extend labor protections to Colombian workers that would be as good or better than those enjoyed by many workers in the United States.
