      Third Party.

      It’s time, Bernie.

      He has never once hinted he would ever consider doing any such thing. More likely he will fight on to the convention. Less likely that he will suspend his campaign.

      Let’s hope I’m astonished.

      He canceled a scheduled conference call with surrogates, saying in an email to them that it would be rescheduled “so that we can better provide you with the most updated plans for upcoming states,’’ according to a copy obtained by The New York Times.

      So it’s just the New York Times brewing up a cauldron of bullshyte that smells like defeat so as to demoralize Sanders supporters.

      FUD

      Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt.

      They’re mouthpieces for their corporate sponsors, and the military industrial complex, who happened to study journalism, or just have a byline.

      Being so consistently slanted for so many years, and pushing particular agendas, doesn’t happen by accident, it’s hard work. And it’s a brand, so they have to foster their culture among the up and comers in their midst. They learn quick that tragedy that the globalists caused in other countries mustn’t be reported on.

      I know less than nothing about what Sanders will say, but I’ll guess that he’ll talk about getting the movement’s message out all the way to the convention, and fighting to have as many delegates as possible so as to influence the platform, and the makeup of the DNC.

      To tell the Sanders movement at the convention to get lost is not in the cards. It becomes a PR battle where perception matters, and the more influential Sanders is, the more his movement has to be accommodated. Especially if Biden is a dead man walking.

      They need Bernie’s enthusiastic support to win swing states. If he hadn’t given it to Clinton her margin of defeat would have been yooge, and she might not have won the popular vote. Sanders has no illusions of running again (unless he’s the incumbent), nor does he head a political family. He will not go on to be a lobbyist, or to head the DNC. So he can afford to stand firm, while the grifters dare not risk their ongoing scam by causing a disaster at the polls, and being seen as having some responsibility for it.

      The public can see as plain as day who is behind Joe Biden’s campaign, and if he flames out it will be on all of them. They couldn’t afford that happening after having started a Civil War with Sanders.

      …Didn’t we already discuss this to death? He would be legally unable to do that in some states.

      Since he stayed in until the convention in 2016, I hope he will again.

      Bernie called a press conference to give Joe Biden homework to come prepared to answer a laundry list of questions for the coming debate on Sunday…..lol

      For the debate but he seems resigned to the fact Biden will be the nominee so he appears to intend to use the debate to press Joe Biden on the issues in which may be an attempt to win over Sanders supporters to Joe Biden.

      Now let’s place our bets on whether there will even be a debate this weekend.

      This is the same type of embarrassment that we had with the Orange Menace who wanted written questions and huge oodles of time to prepare written responses.

        Bernie is our last chance.

        We don’t have four years to wait. It’s now or never. Once in a lifetime . . . letting the days go by.

      I won’t support Biden even if Bernie asks me to. I just can’t do it. I love Bernie, but he knows it would be wrong, and also that it would be pointless. The more we come over and vote blue no matter who, the less the Democrats will change. I’m thinking at this point that I’ll just stay home in November.

        I think Bernie promised to support the nominee, since the DNC allowed him to run as a Democrat, and he is a true Democrat in the FDR sense.

        But we don’t have to vote for a corporate nominee. It was easy when Kerry, Obama, and Clinton ran. I voted for Nader. Who will be the Green candidate now that Jill Stein is not available? If Bernie doesnt win, the Greens will have my vote.
