Imagine if Bernie Sanders said or did this. Elizabeth Warren will do this in General Election. This is Joe Biden, straight from the horses mouth! “If you go out and bundle $250K for me and then you call me after I’m elected … I’m gonna say come on in.” https://t.co/1k6DdJXdmX

Thinking way ahead here: could we mobilize a sit-in at the DNC to remove superdelegates from the nomination process?

Or are there other means by which voters could mobilize for further DNC reforms? I know the DNC Unity Reform meeting happened, but Clinton/Perez delegates overpowered Sanders delegates and kept superdelegates a part of the process. It seems like Bernie's campaign itself doesn't want to be too aggressive and fight back against this, but what can individuals do to push for further DNC reform and removal of superdelegates altogether?

I know she has not made an official endorsement and won't till it doesn't matter, but this email made me so sad I couldn't follow her anymore. Why does everyone abandon Bernie when he needs them most?

Here is the email from Team AOC:

"When you recycle, it’s a good thing. Choosing to take the bus over driving to work is helpful for the planet. Buying an energy efficient lightbulb is something we should all do.

But in last night’s climate town hall, Elizabeth Warren was right to point out a simple fact — that individualizing the climate crisis is exactly what the fossil fuel companies want us to do. They don’t want the solution to be eliminating fossil fuels altogether, they want us to think we’ll save the world by eating a little less meat.

That’s not the case. The only pathway to saving our planet for future generations, holding massive fossil fuel companies accountable, and creating millions of green new jobs along the way, is a Green New Deal. Help us pass it. We’re building a movement — community by community — to win powerful action on climate change. Will you chip in to join that movement?

Multiple candidates — like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and others — got it right. Fossil fuel companies don’t get to shorten our life spans with impunity. They don’t get to destroy low-income communities without consequences.

We have to act. And the impetus for change can’t be on the average household, because they’re not the ones who did this. Companies like Exxon, who knew about the science behind climate change and deliberately hid it from us for decades, are the ones who need to change.

And together, we’re not just going to hold them accountable. We’re going to rise to the greatest challenge of our era, and we’ll come out of it stronger — by passing a Green New Deal.

Pa'lante,

Team AOC"

Democracy Dies From Bad Fact-Checking

https://i.redd.it/mokad9s1uek31.jpg

The Washington Post is trying to use fact-checking as an ideological weapon. Sanders is under attack not for making false statements, but for calling attention to facts that are politically unpalatable for those who are happy with the economic status quo. It’s unclear why the Post so often goes after Sanders in such a myopic fashion: The paper denies that its coverage is influenced by billionaire owner Jeff Bezos, but institutional bias can be more subtly grounded in factors like the economic class of the editors or the newspaper’s being embedded in elite Washington culture.

BREAKING: Bernie Receives First National Union Endorsement from UE

BREAKING: Bernie Receives First National Union Endorsement from UE

https://i.redd.it/tgojg913lui31.png

Today Bernie received the endorsement of the UE union following a formal resolution vote at the 76th UE National Convention. The UE endorsement is the first national union endorsement of the Bernie 2020 campaign! Watch the moment it the vote happened.

Bernie's statement:

“I am humbled to receive the endorsement of my union brothers and sisters from UE. We are running a true working class campaign, which speaks directly to workers and confronts the massive inequality we see in our society today. UE’s successful strike in Erie has sent a message to corporate CEOs across the country that it is absolutely unacceptable for profitable corporations to provide obscene compensation packages to executives, while ripping off workers and their families. Our fight is about the need for an economy that works for all Americans and not just the one percent, and we are going to win that fight together.”

UE General President Peter Knowlton's statement:

“Bernie understands the need for workers to have a democratic, independent union movement that is unafraid to challenge Corporate America's stranglehold on our economy. From four decades of actively supporting UE members and other workers in Vermont, to his vocal support for our 1,700 members in Erie, Pennsylvania who went on a nine-day strike this past winter, Bernie Sanders has always made it clear which side he is on.”

UE, the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America, represent about 35,000 workers in a wide variety of manufacturing, public sector and private service-sector jobs. Earlier this year, Bernie stood in solidarity with UE workers as UE Locals 506 and 618 led an historic and successful strike against Wabtec in Erie, Pennsylvania — the first major manufacturing strike of the Trump presidency.
