GREAT SIGN FOR BERNIE 2020: Trump pal Matt Bevin portrayed his Kentucky reelection bid as a crusade against Bernie Sanders– and the tactic wildly backfired.

The takeaway: GOP attacks on Bernie don't work, which is more proof that Bernie is gonna win. https://bernie.substack.com/p/bern-notice-trump-pal-matt-bevins

A Bernie VS Trump Debate : Discussion

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

I had the most epic thoughts yesterday. What would a Bernie vs Trump debate look like…..

Conclusion: Epic destruction.

Trump: "The Iraq war was a disaster." Bernie: "I know, that is why I voted against it."

Trump: "We need to pull out of the middle east." Bernie: "Your right, we need to stop the endless wars and focus on fixing our broken infrastructure system."

Trump: "Well you're a socialist!" Bernie: "Your right, I am. That's why I am going to give every person in this country access to great healthcare!"

Trump: "How are you going to pay for it?" Bernie: "By raising YOUR and all the 1% taxes! The millionaires and billionaires should pay their fair share and not less than the average working family!"

An additional epic thought was if he picks Nina Turner as VP, then she would debate Mike Pence! XD

I honestly can’t wait until Trump launches his inevitable tirade against Bernie and AOC’s rally.

AOC is the GOP's (and Trump's) number one enemy, and that's actually good for us (I already made a post about this not too long ago). Trump and the Republicans are constantly levying attacks on her, and in doing so they made her the face of the resistance, turning an unknown freshman congresswoman into a major political player. The attacks against AOC and the other "Squad" members by Trump have actually increased support of her among democrats who think Trump has gone too far (ironically, the constant attacks against Trump in 2016 helped him get the nomination and the presidency in much the same way). When Trump inevitably begins to brigade against AOC and Bernie because of their team-up, he'll likely end up heightening support for Bernie among democrats, especially when they notice that Trump sees Bernie as a major threat. And that could help us get both the nomination and the presidency in the end.

Trump Supporter Donated to Bernie, kind of.

I am a fan of Bernie Sanders and recently at work we had a Trump supporter order custom shirts. I felt horrible knowing shirts I printed would be used to help Trump's campaign. Then I remembered reading of a waitress donating her tips from a Trump supporter to the Sanders campaign, so I too sent a $ 27 donation to the Sanders campaign on behalf of the Trump supporter. I now feel better and will continue to donate on behalf of these very generous people. GO BERNIE GO!

Democrats want party unity to beat Trump? We agree: if you want to beat Trump, unite behind Bernie.

A lot of well-meaning centrist Democrats and even a couple progressive-minded activists talk about "Unity" claptrap and will re-elect Trump in the process: they believe we need to unite around a compromise candidate to beat Trump. But Bernie has a MUCH safer shot of beating Trump than Warren. People who look the other way and refuse to fully internalize this fact — centrist Dem voters nationwide, and DNC leaders — are doing the nation a huge disservice by not taking our warning seriously. If you want to beat Trump, you don't have a choice. Unite behind Bernie. Unite now.

Bernie can swing independents, Trump voters, conservatives; Warren can't. Bernie can win in the states that Clinton lost to Trump in 2016; Warren can't. Bernie can speak to the suffering of the poor and the Rust Belt states that were abandoned by the Democrats; Warren can't. Bernie doesn't have a host of ticking time bombs and scandals that, even if Democrats won't touch them now, Trump will ruthlessly use as ammo in the general election (systematically lying about her past in several different ways, being a registered Republican in the 80s); Warren does.

Trump would LOVE to go up against Warren instead of Bernie. If the Democrats are serious about beating Trump, they don't have a choice but to unite behind Bernie. Does the DNC want to win? Then, sorry, you don't get to keep the status quo. The energy of the party is with Bernie, the people that your party left behind are with Bernie, and Bernie is the safer choice against Trump. Unite or lose.

In response to the personal attack post targeted at Warren on the frontpage right now: here’s a policy-based criticism of Warren, and an explanation as to why Bernie is the only real answer that the left has to Trump and the rising far-right in America.

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Warren is, fundamentally, a supporter of the status quo. She's a liberal, not a socialist. She has gone on record supporting capitalism, specifically liberal free market capitalism, although she does believe that greater regulation is required.

This is not enough to energise the left into political action and voting. It is not enough to heal the crisis that free market capitalism is causing in the US. Obama's legacy is one of loosening the chains with gradual reform, instead of a sweeping plan to fix the American economy. Obama failed to heal the wound that the 2008 crisis caused, and we got Trump as a result. Make no mistake – Warren will be exactly the same story, perhaps making more substantial reforms, but she will not challenge the capitalist economic heirarchy that is causing the American populace to lurch towards radicalism. She has billionaire donors who are counting on this fact.

This will only empower the far-right in the following years. When Warren, touted as a "leftist" with "basically the same policy as Bernie", fails to fix the contradictions in capitalism that cause everyone but a handful of billionaires to get poorer and more disenfranchised, the anger and vitriol is going to reach boiling point, and we're going to be in a much worse position to fight it. If Trump is bad, then the competent and more dangerous fascist who comes after him will make him look like a moderate. They're already operating concentration camps on the southern border, and talking about designating anti-fascism as a terrorist movement. Think about what a 2024 Republican presidential nominee looks like in this scenario, when the Democrats fail yet again to enact real change.

The GOP know this. They understand, more than the Democrats do, that that free market neoliberalism is a dying ideology, and more than ever before, people are asking for an alternative, a solution. Their answer is to attack the status quo in the form of abandoning free trade as a desirable objective, pulling out of international bodies, and blaming the problems that capitalism causes on groups such as immigrants, "coastal elites", and foreign powers such as China. The reason that this is so effective at energising their base is that they are at least acknowledging that there's a fundamental issue in our economy which requires drastic action to fix, even if their solutions will only worsen it. When they blame "elites", what their supporters hear is the same thing that we hear when Bernie talks about the 1% – but Bernie is genuine, and actually intends to do something about the issue, whereas the Republicans have no interest in actually challenging that elite. This is called false class consciousness, and it's a common tactic used by fascists to draw support from the working class who should really be supporting socialism.

Bernie knows this, too, and so do other democratic socialists. But our solution is different. It'll actually work. We will guarantee healthcare as a right – no means testing, no mincing words – just a comprehensive healthcare system, paid for by a small increase in tax on the richest in society. We will empower the labor movement like no other president has done. We will encourage employee ownership of businesses, so that the profits are spread equally amongst everyone rather than going to a handful of shareholders who did none of the work that produced it. We will mobilise the economy to fight climate change like the existential threat that it is, and damn the profits of billionaires who protest it. We will change the political landscape so that it's no longer controlled almost entirely by the capitalist class of billionaires and business owners. We will move the Overton window to the left, and we will wage class war on the billionaire class who have been waging one on us for centuries.

Warren will not do any of this. She will be the same story of incremental change that achieves nothing that we've seen from every Democrat since FDR. Like I've said, she has billionaire donors, and they're counting on the fact that she isn't going to upset the existing order too much. Bernie is a real threat to the establishment, and they're terrified.

That's why he's the only acceptable nominee.
