Not just corporate democrats: billionaires getting cold feet

“I think it’s Bernie Sanders becoming more believed in as a real force, and we have to start taking him more seriously,"

“The risk markets and the financial markets broadly will have to deal with the fact that there could be a scare that Bernie Sanders is starting to become a plausible candidate for nomination of the Democratic Party,”

"the 60-year-old billionaire investor gained some notoriety for accurately predicting that Trump would win the 2016 election, before the primaries had concluded."

“I seriously do not believe Joe Biden is going to win the nomination. "

Poor, poor, Gundlach. Whatcha gonna do when they come for you ?

It all depends on the mass movement. Getting Sanders in the White House is but a first step. If you don't have to serve concentrated wealth, you can get political leverage out of every hindrance and increase your ability to bring systemic changes about.

That's what you see with Corporate Democrats. They can't really effectively resist Trump, because that would go against the interests of concentrated wealth (which Trump is serving extraordinarily well, of course, him being part of the establishment/swamp). You see just that happening with the Iran stuff. You get a lot of fake resistance, but only Sanders offers real resistance.

It is going to take decades to get on a less destructive path. First you need to deconcentrate concentrated wealth, and then there is a possibility for social and cultural change. A Sanders presidency is but a first step, and it will never be easy.

We can't be sure, but we all need to do as much as we can, and for Americans that means getting Bernard Sanders into the White House (as a first step). There is no better alternative. There isn't any alternative. Any Blue will not do.

Yesterday, Biden campaign for the 3rd time insisted that Biden didn't support the Iraq War. Newly surfaced video shows Biden bragging about voting for the War & saying he didn't regret it, months AFTER the war was launched. Also criticizes antiwar Dems, praising Bush for leading US into the War

Elizabeth Warren lies about Bernie Sanders, claims he said: "A woman can't win in 2020."

Pre-crime Bernie in 1988:

"In my view, a woman could be elected president of the United States."

Warren lied?  What we have is divergent descriptions of a private meeting between Sanders and Warren in December 2018.  What's publicly known is covered in this article:

Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in private 2018 meeting that a woman can't win, sources say
https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/13/politics/bernie-sanders-elizabeth-warren-meeting/index.html

It seems clear that both candidates recognize that a female or minority candidate has a steeper hill to climb than a white male.  It seems likely that this topic came up in that private meeting, in which they agreed not to attack each other in the campaign.

Maybe at one point in that private meeting Bernie misspoke.  Maybe Warren misunderstood his words.  We can't know, nobody who wasn't in the meeting can know.

To proclaim that one or the other is lying about the conversation isn't supported here.  The accusation of a lie is itself a lie.  Providing just a twitter link to a fragment of information about a controversy is poor form in a discussion forum.

What we know is that two sources, who don't want to go on record (!!), report from a meeting they never attended (!!).

And on the other side, we have a man who is saying "Woman can be president" for decades. Publicly!! On fucking camera!!

What is there to question? This bothsideism is hard to stand in general for me, Steve, but in this particular case, it's extraordinary.

It's not bothsideism to point out what is not known, what we can't know.  I'd agree that sources from Warren's team blabbing to the press about a private meeting is bad behavior.  I think having the press blow this up in headlines is the actual problem.

I do think it's naive to presume that what *any* politician says in front of a microphone matches his/her private thoughts exactly.  Citing public statements to conclude what was said in a private conversation is not supportable.

We don't know what was said in that private meeting.  We don't know that one or the other misspoke or was misunderstood.  It's a tempest in a teapot to proclaim that diverging descriptions represent slander by either party.

Steve, here is one more thought about this whole Warren thing.

There are two possibilities. It's either Warren is lying about what Bernie was saying in that private meeting or not, right?

So, if she is lying, she is a liar. But if she is not lying, that makes her a snitch...

She comes out badly after all, no matter what.

Just the same with the making a DNA test faux-pas. Why was she even giving Trump this triumph? She should have never done this from a political standpoint.

And then her M4A plan that involved 3 iterations (as in 'let's fight 3 fights instead of 1, what could possibly go wrong?').

Even if one thinks she was an honest actor, how can all these political fails be overlooked? She can't be trusted, no matter from what angle you are looking at her.

Debate losers: the moderators. What the fuck was that? Warren didn't look very good for her refusal to dismiss the bullshit claim about Bernie and sexism.

CNN Completely Botched The Democratic Presidential Debate

Quote
Who will stand up for the “insurance town” in the 2020 election? Why should the government do things? Will Bernie Sanders bankrupt America? Who onstage will let Iran have a nuclear weapon ― you know, just because?

If these sound like terrible questions to you, you’re right. They were awful. And they were the focus of CNN’s tedious, interminable, frivolous debate on Tuesday night ― a fiasco of irrelevance held three weeks before the Iowa caucuses.

Again and again, CNN anchors substituted centrist talking points for questions

Yep, accurate!

Good, Tom. Don't even touch the internet.

This way you can avoid questions like "Senator Sanders, your plan to slaughter babies and puppies costs $400 trillion but a recent poll shows that 147% of Americans think that you are Satan. Why do you want to give the terrorists nuclear weapons?" and many more.

Have a nice trip! :)

Kulinksi, always worth listening to, implies that Warren cut a deal with Biden and is therefore stabbing Sanders in the back:

So, you're okay with people from the Warren campaign (and Warren obviously giving the green light) spreading a rumour via the media that Sanders is a sexist, just before the last primary debate? Because that's how all this started, remember?
I don't know if 'circular firing squad' is the right term for that. 'Death squad' seems more appropriate.

Listen to that Michael Moore podcast sidd posted earlier.

I haven't looked in detail because it's just too stupid to waste time on that.  I haven't seen Warren accuse Sanders himself being sexist.  I bet he had just told her the very obvious: In general Americans are sexist.  Just look at the females on Fox News... Sure, Hillary got 3 million votes more - but imagine how much more she would have got as a male.  And Warren is exactly the type of intelligent, educated and dedicated woman the hillbillies hate.  No Fox News Barbie doll, not a stupid Sarah Palin, but coastal "elite" she is.  Luckily not lesbo...

In that scene after the debate when Warren refused the handshake with Sanders, I found his body language condescending... so perhaps he actually is a tad sexist somewhere deep below the surface? (Pale white with black body hair) :)

I recommend you revisit Michael Moore in Trumpland. He gives the full picture of American sexism.



(P.S.: Perhaps not the full picture. In my field studies in Arizona 1992 I met all kinds of lads and gals, incl. the only black female law student at Arizona State. Did you know that even a U.S. Marine with a big combat knife can be scared by an unshaven woman? )

Who started this, how and why?
Looks like CNN started it. The circular firing squad punditry (even Cenk Uygur) then happily (and/or stupidly) misinterpreted it as an accusation of sexism toward Bernie. And there you go again. If I wanted to be paranoid: It's an old Republican trick to avoid any debate of substance. Most Americans, left and right, can only think with their belly.

Google image search on my avatar image gives "wood". In fact it is the lower part of David Hilbert's tombstone.

Well, Martin, no!

It was Warren staffers that started it and it was Warren who put gas on the fire by not setting the facts straight.

And now she is burned. Badly!

And you see me giggle over all this. :)

And now Biden is walking around and telling people the videos of him where he bragged about wanting to cut social security are 'doctored'. This is like a Trump level kind of lie. And the public has noticed. Expect his numbers to drop even more.

And there goes all of the wannabe electability. I love it!

You still haven't looked into it! But you're still talking!

Blumenkraft, I realize you are a stout Bernie supporter (I am too I guess), but looking at the chart in https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/us/2020_democratic_presidential_nomination-6730.html shows Bernie edging very slightly up, while Biden seems quite stable in his lead. Do you seriously expect Bernie to somehow win the nomination, even before considering the nasty bias of the party itself/DNC against him? I am asking not to piss anyone off, but because I care about the result.
