Sanders, Still Seeking Delegates, Slams N.Y.
for Canceling Primary

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 4/28/2020 8:12:24 AM

Despite endorsing presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) criticized New York's decision to cancel its June presidential primary. The twice-failed presidential contender called the decision "a blow to American democracy." The cancellation, which state officials say is necessary to stem the spread of the coronavirus, would also be a blow to Sanders's influence on the future of the Democratic Party. "What the Board of Elections is ignoring is that the primary process not only leads to a nominee but also the selection of delegates which helps determine the platform and rules of the Democratic Party," Sanders senior adviser Jeff Weaver said in a statement Monday.

When will the voters learn that they do not pick the Dem candidate? The DNC picks the candidate.

The cancellation, which state officials say is necessary to stem the spread of the coronavirus, Are these the same state employees who found it necessary to put WuFlu patients in nursing homes so that the elderly and infirm could share in the fun? That is borderline demonic.

I think Sanders smells a rat among the democrat power brokers. He is watching, like the rest of us, what is happening to Biden. He does have a valid claim, should the party attempt to pull a unilateral switch.

They feared Biden would not have a strong showing. Even though Bernie is too far behind to win, it would have been a good chance for his supporters to throw some sand into the gears.

Bernie isn't fooling anybody. A Socialist talking about a "a blow to American democracy?" That's one for SNL except they are Leftist and wouldn't think it funny at all. You should have stayed in the race, Bernie, but we understand you were discouraged and burned out after feeling that DNC screw again. Yes, #4, and that's the same reason that Hillary's mouth keeps moving. When Joe loses what little brain function he has left there will be vultures flocking all over him.

As a side note, Bernie only suspended his campaign. He is free to resume it any time. If the DNC dumps Joe, Bernie is in a position to call for himself to be the nominee. If he weren't to get it, maybe the Bernie Bros will be angry enough to withdraw any support for any other dem.

I agree with #6! I think Bernie has had experience with the shady dealings of the Democrat Party! Yes, he smells a Rat. I think the Rat might be Gov. Cuomo! I think someone whispered in his ear that HE could be the Nominee if only he can switch things around a bit so that Biden is pushed out. So, how about we deny him picking up the Delegates he needs. Look for a lot more slippery deals to happen over the next six months!

I find myself in some agreement with Sanders here. The primary election should in no way be cancelled in NY. Though I have different reasons than Sanders does for thinking this way. I suspect this is for protection of the corrupt incumbents like Nadler, Schumer and AOC so they can keep their seats. That is why they are cancelling, not because of Sanders. But because of those three corrupted democrats. The party knows we are coming after those three, and gotta protect them from us.

House Oversight Committee ranking member and Freedom Caucus founder Jim Jordan appeared on Fox News early Thursday morning to respond to the bombshells surrounding the FBI’s malicious case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Over the course of about 10 minutes, he offered some key observations about the revelations and, more importantly, how they fit into a wider pattern of abuse seen at the FBI during disgraced former Director James Comey’s tenure in office. “The FBI in 2016 spies on two American citizens associated with the Trump campaign,” he said as he began to outline the abuses of power witnessed over the past four years.

An illegal alien has been charged in Polk County, Florida, for possessing more than 200 video files depicting child pornography, some involving toddler victims. Nabor Molina, a 45-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, was arrested on April 27 by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office on 125 counts of possessing child pornography, including depictions of child rape and sexual battery. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd described the files allegedly in Molina’s possession as “horrific displays of children being forced to expose their genitals, forced to perform sex acts — images of children being raped.” “Nabor Molina has access to children; at this time in the investigation, it doesn’t appear that any of them are victims,

Bill Clinton rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick slammed Hillary Clinton for endorsing Joe Biden for president at precisely the time the presumptive Democrat nominee finds himself mired in a sexual assault allegation. “Who better to support Joe Biden than someone with not only years, but decades of experience in enabling a serial sexual predator?” asked Broaddrick sarcastically. “Hillary has no morals,” Broaddrick told Breitbart News. “She does everything for money and power. Her standard of behavior depends entirely on ‘What’s in it for me?’” Clinton yesterday endorsed Biden as the two ironically appeared in a virtual townhall focused on women’s issues and titled a “Virtual Women’s Town Hall.”

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton recently stated that “a crisis tends to strip away façades and reveal who we are and what we believe. “At best, we become stronger as communities and a nation; at worst, we slip into fear and oppression.” The new information concerning coronavirus is revealing more and more about what we already know to be characteristic of those who love freedom and those who love power. As the number of cases of COVID-19 in the United States begins to flatten and decline, several states are preparing to reopen their economies.

In a statement to BuzzFeed, who first reported on the talking points, the Times said the Biden campaign’s characterization of its reporting was “inaccurate.” The talking points claim the paper ruled that Reade’s story “did not happen,” which the statement rebuts: “Our investigation made no conclusion either way,” it states.

C-SPAN is publishing inaccurate transcripts of President Donald Trump’s remarks during the vitally important national coronavirus task force daily briefings. Yes, really. So Trump is being falsely attacked for what Trump never said (again). The worst of it, lately, is Trump asking questions to scientists. Those questions have been transformed into statements that Trump never made. But as I endeavored to clear up the fog, I was shocked to discover that C-SPAN’s textual transcript are the source of the confusion.

Wait, this title is misleading in that it could be read that either “reporters” or “liberals” suck, and the fact is that both suck. But reporters don’t have to suck. Liberals always do, because their trash ideology is terrible and yet they adhere to it. Reporters could be no-holds-barred truthtellers who could not care less, whose agenda they skewer or narrative they shatter in pursuit of the truth. That’s at least theoretically possible, even though most of them merely aspire to be skeevy prog transcriptionists typing out ham-handed propaganda to please their pinko masters. But if our reporters were not human cesspools, what would they be doing right now?

In an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, the New York Democrat accused conservatives of abandoning their principles and said he feared Trump would stop members of his coronavirus task force from testifying before Congress. Schumer also accused several Supreme Court justices of being “so ideological” that they “don’t look at facts” and speculated they could also block witnesses from coming forward. “So many of the conservatives have abandoned that principle and just got along with Donald Trump,

Finally, several of the women’s groups prepared a public letter that praised Mr. Biden’s work as an “outspoken champion for survivors of sexual violence” but also pushed him to address the allegation from Tara Reade, a former aide who worked in Mr. Biden’s Senate office in the early 1990s. “Vice President Biden has the opportunity, right now,
