Take Action: Unlike Mike!

Super Tuesday is days away, when the largest single-day share of delegates will be awarded in the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination. We need to send the message to voters everywhere: nominating Mike Bloomberg would be a disaster for the party, the country, and democracy. A new video, produced in partnership with RootsAction, conveys key Bloomberg realities in stark terms. Can you chip in and help us get this message out to as many people as possible before Tuesday?

Who Is 🦅 Bernie Sanders? Narrated By Mo Welch | NowThis

That’s Bernie Sanders, in 1987, a former mayor, congressman, friend to punks everywhere, and current U.S. Senator from Vermont. Today, in 2020, he is running for president, and saying the exact same things.

This is a story about a democratic socialist who’s a serious contender to become the President of the United States. (Narrated by Mo Welch)

Bernard Sanders was born in 1941 in Brooklyn, New York to a lower middle class Jewish family. They lived in a rent controlled apartment in Flatbush. His father, Eli, emigrated from Poland, escaping prevalent anti-semititsm, but almost all of his family were murdered by Nazis in the Holocaust.

While attending the University of Chicago, he organized a sit-in against segregation, protested police brutality and the Vietnam War. Later, he attended the historic 1963 march on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech. During that same summer, Bernie was arrested for resisting arrest after he crossed a police line while protesting segregated schooling. He spent the night in jail, and was fined $25.

In the 70s he ran for U.S. Senate and the Vermont Governor’s  seat, twice each, under a third party ticket. He lost. But, he became the Mayor of Burlington, Vermont in 1981, winning the race by just 10 votes. As an independent, he beat the Two party system and caught the nation’s attention. He was reelected mayor 3 times, serving 8 years.

While mayor, he also hosted a public access show called, ‘Bernie Speaks With The Community’. This show would end up serving as a record for his consistency. As mayor, Bernie championed what the UN recognized as an award-winning, sustainable affordable housing program and was named one of America’s top 20 mayors in 1987.

In 1991, he won a U.S. house seat for The Green Mountain State. He was declared an “Honorary Woman” by Gloria Steinem. And among other issues, Bernie voted against the Iraq war, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of human beings.

But at other times, Bernie was further to the right on certain issues. Although he has never risen above the grade of a C minus from the NRA, he did do some things in congress that pleased them. He voted against the Brady Bill, a gun law making sure everyone who wanted to buy a handgun had to wait five days while law enforcement ran a background check.

He voted for Joe Biden’s crime bill, which helped contribute to the rise in mass incarceration that disproportionately affected Black Americans.

In 2006, Bernie ran for Senate and won. He’s chairman of the US Senate Committee on Veterans’ affairs, where in 2014 — along with John McCain — he passed a massive veterans bill to improve their health care. Critics of Bernie’s time in the Senate claim he didn’t get much accomplished. In fact, he has, to date, sponsored over 200 bills while serving in the Senate. However, only 3 of those bills were enacted.

And then Bernie decided to run for President in 2016. The primary was a tight race. Hillary narrowly beat Bernie in the Iowa caucuses. But Hillary gained steam.

Clinton had about 4 million more primary and caucus votes than Sanders, giving her a clear lead going into the democratic national convention. Two weeks before the convention, Bernie dropped out of the race and endorsed Hillary.

In 2017, Bernie was back in the Senate, where he introduced Medicare for All. Bernie argues that every other major industrialized nation on Earth made healthcare a right and he believes the U.S. should too.

Bernie decided to run for president again in 2020, with Medicare for All as his centerpiece.

As the 2020 race heats up, his platform has taken center stage - subsidizing college, single-payer healthcare, a $15 minimum wage, and a federal jobs program, to name a few.

Agelbert RANT: The 😈💵🎩 DNC did all they could to RIG a "big win" for 🦕 Biden. It's BS. 🦅 Sanders 👍 has FAR MORE support from African Americans nationwide, AND in North and South Carolina too, than 🦕 Biden. Lots of voting places were shut down WITHOUT NOTICE. A Biden "big win"? Don't believe the baloney. Expect more massive attempts at rigging by the 🐍 DNC on Super Tuesday. BOTH Klobuchar and Buttegieg dropping out NOW and BOTH saying their campaign will endorse 😇 Biden 😉 is part of that DNC strategy to BS we-the-people into supporting 🦕 Biden.

🌞 Sanders is the 🦅 American public's favorite for POTUS. Keep working to FORCE the 👹 DNC to support Sanders, whether they like it or not.

SNIPPET:

After much deliberation and robust debate, The Nation has decided to endorse Bernie Sanders for President of the United States.

If Bernie Sanders had simply demonstrated that it is possible to wage a competitive campaign for the presidency without relying on wealthy donors, corporate funders, or secretive PAC money, he would have earned his place in history.

If all Sanders had to show for his two campaigns for the presidency was the greatest leftward shift in the political discourse since Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s second term—putting not just Medicare for All but also the Green New Deal, free public higher education, fair taxation, cancellation of student debt, housing as a human right, universal free child care, and an unwavering critique of the billionaire class firmly onto the political agenda—we would owe him our gratitude.

If his contribution to the debate on foreign policy never went beyond refusing to endorse trade deals that harm workers, denouncing America’s endless wars, and reasserting Congress’s control over presidential adventurism—and had not also included defying AIPAC and the Israel lobby, reminding Americans that many of those crossing our borders are fleeing dictators sustained by Washington, and maintaining his long-standing rejection of authoritarianism at home or abroad—we would still recognize Sanders as a prophetic figure.

Full endorsement:

🦅 Bernie Sanders 🌟 and the 👹Establishment Red Scare Meltdown
2,044 views•Premiered 39 minutes ago


The Intercept
149K subscribers

We are witnessing the beginnings of the cataclysmic meltdown that will occur in various sectors of the U.S. political class in the United States if Bernie Sanders wins the majority of delegates in the Democratic primary.

It has unfortunately become low hanging fruit to look at MSNBC’s coverage of this primary for a sense of how out of touch, delusional and, frankly, demoralized the Democratic establishment and its pundits are. But it is really something to behold.

And then you have this shameless class of neocons, lifelong right-wing Republicans, so-called conservative pundits who call themselves Never Trumpers. They have been in this weird alliance with the MSNBC/DNC crowd in the Trump era. And now they are all offering their totally unsolicited and unwanted panic-addled advice for what Democrats should do and how urgent it is to stop Bernie Sanders.

Bernie Sanders has been vetted. The campaign of Hillary Clinton spent substantial resources on so-called opposition research and produced absolutely nothing that could effectively tar Sanders.

One of the wealthiest people on earth, Michael Bloomberg, is spending megamillions right now trying to smear Bernie Sanders. And it is a bit ironic, and frankly nuts, that Bloomberg — with all of his heinous, well-documented skeletons walking around out in public — to pretend to be the vetter in chief of Bernie Sanders.

Here is the fact: If there was any real dirt on Bernie Sanders, it would have already been weaponized and deployed. And so what do we have now? Red-baiting. McCarthyism is the central strategy of the bipartisan coalition trying to stop Bernie Sanders.

Here is the major difference between those attacking Sanders and Bernie Sanders: Bernie Sanders has consistently opposed U.S. hegemony. That’s why they attack him. These people don’t care about human rights unless it fits their agenda. If you actually listen to what Bernie Sanders has said about left-wing governments, he constantly offers nuance. He calls out authoritarianism and anti-democratic policies.

Bernie Sanders is an imperfect messenger, for sure. But he has done the work, kept focus, and inspired so many people across racial, economic, gender, and ethnic lines to fight for something bigger than themselves. Remember that when you watch the desperate smears against him. Remember that what they are trying to stop has nothing to do with Fidel Castro or the Sandinistas.

This is about stopping the masses of people in this country who are sick and tired of a system based on oppression and rooted in defense of a system where the rich and powerful rule all of our lives.

Centrists Will Still Be Split on Super Tuesday, Thanks to Mike Bloomberg

WILLIAM RIVERS PITT, TRUTHOUT

Joe Biden's big win in South Carolina -- his first such victory in three presidential attempts -- has his allies in the media celebrating, and his large donors have returned to the fold. But Biden's seeming surge back into relevance faces a daunting test today. That test is Mike Bloomberg. Bloomberg's presence threatens to turn Super Tuesday into 40 miles of bad road for the former vice president.

😈 Texas Closed Hundreds of Polling Sites in Black and Latino Communities

IGOR DERYSH, SALON

Texas has shuttered more polling places than any other state since 2012 and most of the closures disproportionately hit Black and Latino areas. The 50 counties that saw the highest growth in Black and Latino population had 542 polling sites close between 2012 and 2018, while the 50 counties with the lowest Black and Latino population growth saw just 34 closures.

Unions Fighting Single-Payer Are Fighting Against Their Workers' Interests

MICHELLE CHEN, TRUTHOUT

Leaders of unions, which collectively represent about 1 in 10 workers nationwide, are divided on Medicare for All. Many labor organizations have deep economic and political stakes in the health insurance industry, often because they help provide health care to members under multiemployer insurance plans. However, if private health insurance were replaced by a state-run system, unions would be challenged to shift the value of their contracts into other types of compensation.
