Bernie Sanders Is Suspending
His Presidential Campaign

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 4/8/2020 11:37:32 AM

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said Wednesday he is suspending his 2020 presidential campaign, bowing to the commanding delegate lead former Vice President Joe Biden has established. Sanders made the announcement during an all-staff conference call. He will give public remarks at 11:45 a.m. ET, his campaign says. Sanders' decision comes weeks after the coronavirus pandemic upended the Democratic race. The worsening outbreak delayed primary contests and the party's nominating convention and has halted all in-person campaigning, forcing the two candidates to hold virtual events from their respective homes. Sanders suspended his campaign after voters went to the polls Tuesday

His stimulus for "giving up" is on the way. Bet he gets his before any of the rest of the country gets theirs. Coffers are full, time to retire, Bernie boy!

Setting the stage for an unnecessary Dem Convention which may be reduced to a 'virtual' event. Might as I might have wished it, a physical gathering would likely have given rise to a another round of Covid-19 just as occurred in the Fall of 1918.

Setting the stage for a trusted, establishment third-party "moderate" to jump in with some "unity" challenge, pulling the "moderate" Dems and "moderate" NeverTrump Republicans out of the proverbial political ditch PDT has dug for them, dumping AOC and The Squad radicals by the roadside. Now, who could this "moderate" be...? A guy who gets big things done. A man of 24-karat accomplishment. An independent, pragmatic thinker and doer. A former governor in a deep blue, "moderate" state like Massachusetts. Like, maybe saved the Olympics once...that sort of thing.

Bernie the Cowardly Lion just ruined my prediction of a deadlocked convention. In the end, it turns out he didn't care about anything but money - for his corrupt wife, crooked stepdaughter, bast*rd son, who all probably made some serious campaign siphoned dollars. but all gravy trains must come to an end. So, Bernie, good bye. And shut up. No one cares what you have to say. And you will have to live the rest of your life knowing that you lost the nomination for the highest office, first to a fetid felon, and second, to delaware dementia patient. Does the money make up for those embarrassments, Bernie?

The question: what is the plan /who is heir when Joe has a “health event”? Does Bernie’s current stimulus include “stay away pay,” or does the suspension have to be renegotiated when Gropes can no longer fulfill his duties. So many more questions than answers. We ain’t done yet.

The only movement Bernie can take credit for is in his bowels. He did uncover how many Americans can't be responsible on their own, so we owe him that. About the best thing Bernie did was to show us how much Civics should be taught in school. Nothing is free. Not school, not medical care, nothing.

Who cares, it was the Democrat machine that killed Bernie and his campaign and not Biden. If Bernie was on the up and up Bernie would be telling his supporters that truth, but he won’t. Bernie probably figures that he beat his gums and his currently dead horse of a campaign as far as he could, while making a lot of money through corrupt campaign manipulations, and who knows a big payoff at the end to make himself scarce. If Biden does not select Bernie as his Vice-President, Bernie’s supporters have a good reason to come further unglued.

General Motors said it will recognize Friday — the day known as "Juneteenth," which celebrates the end of slavery in the U.S. — with 8 minutes, 46 seconds of silence to support the Black community. The time frame represents the length of time a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on the neck of a Black man named George Floyd on May 25 before Floyd died. The videotaped incident has prompted weeks of protests against police brutality across the country and around the world.

The prospect of the first Black woman to appear on a presidential ticket looks more likely than ever before, with Joe Biden seriously considering Kamala Harris, Val Demings and Keisha Lance Bottoms to be his running mate. But there’s also a serious white contender in the mix who is showing a unique capacity to energize African Americans: Elizabeth Warren. While the continued protests sparked by the death of George Floyd have amplified the pressure on Biden to choose a Black woman as his No. 2, several Black leaders are voicing a notable degree of support for Warren, strengthening her case

We are making an important change today in our writing style. When referring to a culture, ethnicity or group of people from the African diaspora we will use “Black,” with an uppercase B. We are making this change to NJ Advance Media’s style guide to acknowledge and respect the word represents a people with shared cultures and experiences, and not a color. Black, we believe, should be used like other identifiers, such as “Asian,” “Latino” or “African American.” We also will continue to use “African American” in stories when warranted, as “African American” and “Black” aren’t always interchangeable.
