Biden: "Coronavirus Is Helping My Numbers"

Circe @ 176 said;"Blacks who followed Clyburn's lead, voting against their best interests for Biden only because he served Obama, who did nothing for blacks except become a half black President, deserve the big zero they'll get from Biden. If they mean Sanders didn't embrace the Neoliberal side of the Party, i.e. the 20% shysters who are destroying the Party, because he was threatening to cut funding to Israel for Palestinian rights and cut MIC funding...good on him!"

"The Democratic Party made its bug-infested bed, now lie in it, theiving morons."

Yep, absolutely,except the percentage of the neo-libs is more like 60%.
Big $ talks..

Well said, no billionairs, redistribute all overwealth, promote public investment and private enterprise together but maintain wealth ceiling on the private sector. Wage justice and profit share bonus is mandatory and can be subsidised from the tax pool when needed.

I believe we already have a Global Government of sorts made up of members of the global corporate , philanthropic and political elite. China, Russia and the West are all united at this level, the conflicts we are told that exist are just fake wrestling (kayfabe-covfefe) to distract us from this reality until we are conditioned by more terror (financial, eco, biological, islamic, etc) to accept a global dictatorship under nationalized control (only the elite will be truly globalized and free, while the herd remains locked down by national borders in terms of travel and information via national internet firewalls like China).

According to Kissinger, there is a new opportunity to create the new world order. Trump’s patriotic and populist rhetoric is a part of this game. The opposition is attracted by the hope of change and its force can be used to create the desired synthesis between the Liberal/Left call for a global climate-dictatorship in order to save the planet, and Conservative/Right call for a surveillance-fascism in order keep the nation safe from immigrants, drugs and crime.
Trump is no threat to the global financial elite, which he himself was born into. He is their trump card in the process of implementing the technocratic nightmare-society . The newly proclaimed global emergency (first for the climate crisis and now for the corona threat) is paving the road for its implementation and Trump plays a big part in this which is why he was chosen. Trump is to be crowned , thanks to corona (crown) virus as a leader of the NWO which is a synthesis between Brave New World and 1984

Trump is faithful only to his own ego, and to his close friends in Big Tech and Big Finance that are operating worldwide to implement a global technocratic agenda using ecoterrorism, financial terrorism and bioterrorism to achieve the necessary support. The solution to be implemented, will be the complete opposite of the promised Utopia.

The solution to this man made crisis combines the dreams from Right-wing nationalists about tighter border control and surveillance of refugees with Left-wing ambitions to control and tax the air we breathe. It also includes a powerful world government, with populations controlled by nationalist local governance subject to global government rules in implementing the New International Economic Order and the 4TH Industrial Revolution

A political–economic Technocracy where freedom becomes a distant memory is just around the corner. Trump is the Chosen one to lead us to the New and Final World Order. Just a figurehead as the real power stands behind the curtain. That power needs no votes but counts the votes cast in any election and when needed makes necessary adjustments.

With your musings, Pft, I don't see any daylight in the cracks where hope should be.

Yes, elites in China and the U.S. have hitched their wagons together.

Tighter border control in the U.S., however, does indeed necessitate a return to patriotic nationalism which is the only way for this country to break its globalist control.

Wariness of any supranational organization is needed today by independent leftists, despite their inclination for centralized government.

The U.S. Withholding funds from the W.H.O is a great start.

Bernie is STILL on the ballot in all remaining states and will continue to rake up delegates. So people in remaining states can still vote for him. Who knows? Anything can happen...with Biden. For starters some people are already having buyers' remorse. Let's call voting for, just in case ol' Joe doesn't make it. It can't hurt. 😉

bernie on the ballot

It's trending. Never give up until the last ballot is country in the final state.

...until the last ballot is Counted not country. Geez, got to watch out for auto word substitutions!

Posted by: Circe | Apr 10 2020 1:12 utc | 207

Circe @208,

If I understood you correctly, you propose to vote for not even a zombie but for a rigid corpse -- the corpse of a warmongering mountebank at that, one who positively proved, twice already, that his job was not to get the office but sheepdog the disgruntled boobies back to the toxic Democrat fold and destroy any third party action. Do you really think that's substantially better than a clinically demented embezzler who can't even keep his mouth shut?

Posted by: Piero Colombo | Apr 10 2020 1:14 utc | 208

Whenever you tweet sign #BernieOnTheBallot so it keeps trending.

That's cool. I failed an exam once when I wrote in Cyrus Griffin in answer to whowusdafirstpeez...the wanted Georgie's name...myth! ugh!

You are the second person in 70+ years to say it. Cool.

@ Posted by: vinnieoh | Apr 8 2020 22:06 utc | 92 your: "Kinda' takes the glow off JFK's halo, doesn't it? Now, just where do we want to start in delineating when the US took a series of wrong turns? Eisenhower gave us the now ubiquitous phrase "military industrial complex" but it wasn't until he was on his way out the door as POTUS that he apparently felt free enough to tell the US public how phuqued everything was.

You perhaps see John Boy as a static mythic figure...whereas in reality he was still becoming mature under really bizarre conditions and internal contradictions (Seymour Hersch's bio here comes to mind.

I am surprised by your implication that JFK knew "he was going out the door"

Very surprised. I had thought this possible, but have not ever seen any evidence that JFK expected to leave office by anything except volition or law. eg losing a lawful election, or deciding to run for the office.

Can you support this implication, please?

But it was very probably the relationship he had with Mary Meyers that brought him into direct confrontation with the deeper fascist elements that murdered him...and which traces to matters at hand to-day.

Thank you, I was unaware of Mary Pinchot Mayer so I read this brief snapshot of the connections.

They watch every move when they can. Easier now of course.

Bernie is a pathetic coward whose sole purpose is to herd disaffected progressives into the Democratic Camp. Bernie will go down in history as a feckless failure. Stop making excuses for this poseur. This pussy never intended to win and on a certain level I'm glad that he's withdrawn because Trump would have eaten his punk-ass alive! Bernie deserves to be relegated to the dustbin of history as a loser par excellence.

I would not have put it exactly that way, out of politeness, but that is exactly how I feel about that guy. He was never the man for the movement....but his heading the movement held it back. I agree with JR on this one!

Can you guarantee me there will be a president election in 3Nov?

The only thing I can guarantee right now is that you will be choosing between two morons.

Bernie Bro’s, and Circe,

You fell for the bait and bail again.
The same people that excoriate Trump supporters for being dupes, and simpletons, are themselves dupes.
And as intellectually superior as those people have purported to be, have been again proven to be midgets.
Can you feel the Bern?

Top Biden VP contenders according to the NY Post
Note HRC and Cuomo are considered "no way".
Michelle Obama mentioned, but "front runner" is Klobuchar, with Harris (!), Whitmer and Duckworth in the mix.
