      I do not see how this cannot be a coordinated attack plan on Senator Sanders….various “News Media” organizations are falling all over themselves and each other with their BS to stop Sanders from running….

      Axios has gone off the rails and I will not link to their Hit Piece…Apparently RoseAnn DeMoro is seeing it too—-

      I can’t wait to see Bernie’s poll numbers showing him at the top when he does run. It will drive the corporate media and establishment Dems crazy. They will say, “Oh, no way is he the top candidate. That is a fluke. Kamala Harris is our top candidate. It can’t possibly be Bernie.” I want to see the media-heads explode when they see Bernie polling higher than all these other corporate ass-hats.

        One reporter for Axios said the progressives such as Markos (dKos) have moved past Sanders’ ideas—-I just fumed….Yep, I think they are worried too–I doubt this is all coincidence–there were several this morning on the MSM…(I have to make myself watch parts of it just to be advised of what they are up to….) Gaah!

        They really do want Kamala. lol. That’s probably why they moved California to the early part of the primaries. It’s her home state, so they hope she gets a huge lead out of it.

          Yep! Could not agree more. I’m wondering if the AP will call the race for her the day before the CA primary again?!?!

          They  seem to be pushing an unspoken Kamala/Beto ticket by talking around them but in the same breath….

          Eff Kos. He’s the one that shut out Bernie supporters on Kos on the 15th of May, I think.

          He hasn’t learned his effing lesson. He can have Kamala, and go down in flames as a corporatist moron.

          Censors, PLEASE remove the f word.

            It is not censors–it’s a spam filter and we hired a programmer to build a plugin for it. We do not censor. We have already explained that several times. Jeepers.

      HAHAHAHA

      Bernie figured he could do more good ALIVE,
      than dead in a small plane "accident".
      I think he's right.

      Don't you?

      They’ve always been out and not just for Bernie. Anyone who is progressive is a target for smear. Some of you may be susceptible to Democratic Party smears because you still have a mindset they are the Democratic Party from the past. Resist it because the Democratic Party of Roosevelt or Bobby Kennedy doesn’t exist anymore. Stay on your toes and fact check and push back on lies and propaganda and smears or become something of the past yourselves.

        I did–I sent an email to Axios and let ’em have it with both, uh barrels. Corrected their BS, outright lies an listed the ‘disqualifiers’ for Kamala, Beto et al. One of the authors was on MsHRC spouting forth this nonsense. Yes, we must fight back. I found a wonderful quote from Frederick Douglass yesterday—it was on a video by the Real News–in case you missed it-OP is “Who’s Afraid of AOC?” Norman soloman referred to it–something to this effect:

        “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.  Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”

        He was referring to primarying corpo-dems—taking away their power….most excellent. Yes, fight back!!!

      They are scared to death of Bernie. His recent calls to enact FDR’s Second New Deal and to move foreign policy in a more peaceful and less expensive direction will only panic them more. They will sound increasingly desperate as time goes on.

      In short, Russia! hysteria may morph to No Bernie! hysteria in short order.

        Some of what I heard this mornng made my skin crawl…we’re back to vagina voters–regardless of their records—oh, and Bernie’s toast, the real progressives like (gagme) Beto have left him in the dust.

        REALLY? Made my blood boil. We need to attack these bastards. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Let’s start our own teevee cable news channel for progressives….gawd, I miss Al-Jazeera America and David Schuster and Bill Moyers….

      One Aspect not noted is simply this.

      Bernie thwarted their heir apparent in 2016 and they will stop at nothing to ensure that he never succeeds.

        If I read another article stating that Bernie fizzled out toward the end of the primary season I will blow grits. They are rewriting history. The AP declared the Queen the winner of the CA primary the day before the primary was held–June 7th, same as NM. We STILL don’t know who actually won the effing thing. (He lost by 3 points here to her Highness in strong Hillbot land.) He was bringing it all the way to the end and your are correct, my friend, they will never forgive him for running.

      This is stunningly obvious, and absolutely undeniable.

      This is one of the main reasons I have long been an active proponent of extreme, non-violent direct action.  Boycotts, mass general strike, shutting down the ports, protests, and occupying everything.

      The MSM is controlled by oligarchy, and the oligarchs use it as a weapon to control We the People, and eliminate the threat of genuine democracy.  We manage to get some true information through the cracks in the pipeline through which mass available information flows, but the MSM is so overwhelmingly everywhere that the sheer volume of easily available misinformation and disinformation flowing from the MSM 4th estate, owned and managed by the oligarchy, can effectively sway the opinions of the largely uninformed and misinformed citizenry, particularly the uninformed and misinformed portion of the electorate.

      If they succeed in eliminating Bernie from the candidate field by using deliberate false, duplicitous, and malevolent propaganda, I suggest we begin organizing, and make preparations to shut the system down through non-violent direct action and non-participation.

      This is a risky undertaking, and will require a great deal of sacrifice. Wise preparation among activists can eliminate some of the sacrifice.

      The oligarchy is currently privatizing everything as rapidly as they can, and they are taking extreme measures to fully control our electoral systems.  They have stolen our liberty, our democracy, our opportunity, and our country.

      It has become crystal clear that we are fast approaching a point of critical mass where oligarch control of media, combined with their nefarious manipulation in our electoral system, will make it completely impossible for the people to elect any candidate except for the candidate chosen by the oligarchy to represent only them, and only their interests.

      If they cheat us in the upcoming election, it will be the signal that it is time for us to roll.

      Two weeks of totally shutting it down will cause them to lose billions, a month will cause them to lose trillions.  Maintaining their paper assets and their physical holdings will become impossible.  We will beggar the rotten, greedy, evil phascists if they don’t negotiate and submit to the will of the People.

      It’s getting down to either we take them on and eliminate them from all power, control, and authority, or we, and our descendants, become a form of permanently indentured servants, owned by the oligarchy.

      Not since the War for Independence have the words of Patrick Henry been this relevant:

      “Give me Liberty, or give me Death”

      It is the sovereign right, and responsibility, of the People to reclaim our government, and our destinies, from the oligarchs who have used wealth, fraud, corruption, and any and all other nefarious means to steal our democracy and our right of self determination.

      If they cheat us this time, we either engage in whatever non-violent acts it takes to beggar them and remove them from power, or roll over in sniveling, groveling submission, and gratefully and permanently accept whatever piles of their toxic corporate privatized poo they force us to eat.

          Thank you, Land of Enchantment, I’m honored by your request, and will attempt to post this as an OP directly.

      Bernie’s popularity will be attributed to Russian propaganda. Media coverage will cover political gossip as legitimate news while any actual policy positions will be ignored or dismissed as unrealistic if outside the Overton Window.

        You make some good points. Anyone desperate to find “collusion” needs look no further than the MSM, the DNC and the biased journalists. I’m going to have to look up the Overton Window. Thanks.

        We are going to need an organized all-out strategy to fight back againt all they are planning to throw at us. We have a lot of smart members here and I hope they can guide us as to HOW to accomplish this…
