Russia is trying to delegitimize fair and free elections around the globe to quell the mounting wave of opposition to Putin's autocracy in Russia. Until we have a leader in the White House and vote out the secretly pro-Russia contingent in Congress, we will not be in a position to combine with allies to shut down his nonsense.

Quite interesting but it used to be an authoritarian held power by simply shooting his opponents aka, North Korea, nowadays it's throw a veneer of Democracy. Putin like other technocrats needs to “win” elections. Of course the game is rigged.

"Sanders wins Nevada caucuses, takes national Democratic lead"

 

Quote

(AP) — Bernie Sanders scored a commanding victory in Nevada’s presidential caucuses, cementing his status as the Democrats’ national front-runner but escalating tensions over whether he’s too liberal to defeat President Donald Trump.

 

Joe Biden was a distant second, followed by Pete Buttigieg in third and Elizabeth Warren in fourth, with Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer in a close race for fifth. They all are pledging to stay in the race as the primary moves on to South Carolina this coming Saturday, with the Super Tuesday states voting on March 3.

 

...

 

In a show of confidence, Sanders left Nevada on Saturday for Texas, which offers one of the biggest delegate troves in just 10 days on Super Tuesday.

 

“We are bringing our people together,” he declared. “In Nevada we have just brought together a multigenerational, multiracial coalition which is not only going to win in Nevada, it’s going to sweep this country.”

 

Maybe the lovable old codger can pull this off. 

 

"Sanders’ path has echoes of Trump’s 2016 campaign"

 

Quote

 (AP) — A burn-it-down candidate is topping a splintered field of more moderate contenders and setting the party’s establishment wing on edge.

 

It’s how Donald Trump began his unlikely march to the Republican nomination in 2016. And four years later, it’s how Sen. Bernie Sanders has cemented himself as the front-runner for the Democratic nomination.

...

Sanders’ surge has energized his legion of liberal supporters, including young people drawn to his calls for a government-run health care system and eliminating student debt. But it’s sparked an outcry from rival campaigns and other moderate Democrats that mirrors the worries of Republicans who tried, but failed, to block Trump’s path in 2016.

Yeah, balty, the unnamed sources you've been bitching about for so long are suddenly fine. That's rich.

 

Here's the headline: Trump sends senior appointees to deny Russian assistance in 2020 election...on background, of course.

Trump security adviser slammed for politicizing intelligence on Russian interference 

 

Quote

Donald Trump’s national security adviser has said he has not “seen any intelligence that Russia is doing anything” to get the president re-elected, but also seemed to accept reports that Russia is backing Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary.

 

 

In response, one senior Democrat slammed the “politicisation of intelligence” by the Trump administration and said Robert O’Brien should “stay out of politics”.

O’Brien’s claim, in an interview with ABC’s This Week, came at the end of a week in which it was reported that US officials briefed the House intelligence committee that Russia was again trying to help get Trump elected.

Reports of Trump’s furious reaction were followed by the departure of Joseph Maguire, the acting director of national intelligence, and his replacement by Richard Grenell, formerly ambassador to Germanyand a Trump loyalist. The president has tweeted extensively on the subject, blaming Democrats and the media for “disinformation hoax number 7”.

It was also reported this week that Trump, congressional leaders and Sanders himself were briefed that Moscow was repeating another tactic from 2016 and backing the Vermont senator.

Dude, the link was from CNN.   If CNN sees anti-Trump exaggeration, that's saying something. 

 

Russia! Russia! Russia! - oops maybe not.   :lol:

Dude, CNN reported it the same way they have since day one which is by stating the facts, and you have done nothing but complain about on background and unnamed source reports since you got here (for the third time). So why are you accepting them now? 

 

Furthermore,  her office is not commenting (that's career intelligence folks, not Trump lackeys). Why do you think that is?

What a dingbat! 

 

Joe Biden drops claim he was arrested seeing Mandela

 

Quote

Joe Biden was not arrested in South Africa while trying to see Nelson Mandela, his campaign has conceded.

 

The US presidential contender had repeatedly said he was arrested during a trip there in the 1970s, when South Africa was under apartheid.

 

But a deputy campaign managers told reporters Mr Biden had been referring to an episode where he was "separated" from black colleagues at an airport.

 

Mr Biden is counting on black support to win South Carolina on Saturday.

 

Let's see what the "black support" has to say about this on Saturday, eh!

This thread shows why Trump will win again in 2020.

How after 4 years of him the Democrats can`t get together and say who gives a fuck who represents us as long as we beat Trump it doesn`t matter.

But no,egoes,self interests and money get in the way and they will just end up being a laughing stock while Trump won`t be able to believe his luck.

If Trump wins again it will be nice to know the Democrats have contributed to fucking the country up as much as the Republicans.

This trope is getting tired both here and on Twitter. In 1992, when no one thought any Democrat could beat Bush and we had every bit as many candidates for the Democratic Party nomination, no one thought the neophyte governor of Arkansas had a snowball's chance in hell. Then what happened?

Yeah, it wasn't puppies and rainbows between H.R. Clinton and Obama in 2008, either.

 

It's the nature of the beast.

Why not use the most recent example when Clinton was "The Chosen One" and was going to walk all over Trump ?

Also kind of makes my point,"yer don`t worry we got it covered no problem with whoever we pick even if some candidates supporters decide to spoil vote if their candidate doesn`t win".

How can anyone argue with such an informed and detailed opinion?

There are only a few Democratic candidates who are acceptable to the DNC and the Superdelegates.   If you followed the 2016 primaries and have followed the processes for 2020, you realize that the nominee is not necessarily the person who wins the most primaries or has the most popular support.  

 

The DNC would prefer to lose the election to Trump rather than win the election with Bernie Sanders or Tulsi Gabbard.    The leadership of the DNC and its backers would lose power and influence.

If you have followed US politics closely, that would have been obvious 25 or more years ago.

Biden trounced Sanders in SC. I give it 3 days before some idiot starts sparking up the Burisma nonsense that has all but disappeared while Sanders was pulling ahead. Operation Chaos had zero net effect on the anticipated result. So much for GOP cheating plan number 2.

Yes - anyone who doesn't view Burisma like authoritarian AlexTr does is an ... "idiot".   

 

BTW, here is a new scam.   Instead of getting paid off via book deals, have one of your associates produce "fine art" to be sold at mega-inflated prices.

Operation Chaos?     Jeremy?   :lol:

On a serious note, Biden/Harris versus Trump/Haley would be an interesting matchup.   

 

Bernie has no chance and if the DNC treats him badly enough, they can push his working class followers into the Trump camp.  It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

Again, read something. If you haven't heard of Operation Chaos, you are merely stating that you are not a well-read consumer of news. You must be so embarrassed, @balticus.

 

The Dem establishment has conquered a local conspiracy from a 2008 narrative.   Well, at least they have pivoted away from the nutty Russia conspiracy theories for now. 

 

Sanders has no chance.   It's only a question of how the DNC can elbow him out while retaining his supporters.   If he does well on Super Tuesday, the situation could be very interesting.

Here's Chris Sullivan, since it is more than likely that you don't know.

 

Seriously, you never learn.
