If the Muller investigation is inconclusive about Trump’s involvement in alleged collusion, then Democrats including Sanders need to go after Trump on his character and policy ALONE — Anything more and Trump will shout “no collusion” all the way back to the White House in 2020.

Though the full report has not been released, only information derived from the report that is evidentiary and conclusive about any particular activity or crime, related or unrelated to collusion, should be carefully scrutinized by the campaign of Sanders or any other Democratic candidate.

But, it cannot be speculative. And, by speculative I mean anything that was not explicitely documented in Muller's 2+ year investigation. Nor, anything that is not revealed during Mueller's inevitable subpoena hearing.

This, no matter what you think of Trump, the report, Robert Mueller, or the integrity of the investigation itself.

The Media will continue to try to connect Trump to Russia for the next coming months, perhaps years.

But it is true, and it has always been true that Trump can and will be defeated if he is attacked on the merits of his character and his policy decisions, alone. Full stop.

We do not need RussiaGate. We never did, we never will.

If there is any attempt by any Democratic candidate to continue to draw connections between Trump and Russia, it will only serve to bolster Trumps base who are currently ceremoniously rejoicing over Trump's enourmous victory.

Any attempt of this kind will hurt the entire Democratic ticket, will backfire against the candidate, and we will all pay sorely for it.

Some of us may say we have all the evidence we need to implicate Trump in collusion, some of us may not.

But the highest criminal/investigative authority in this country disagrees and that's all that will ever matter to Trump's support base.

From the most recent email (Subject Line "[Photos] Our YUUUGE events in Brooklyn and Chicago"):

While Donald Trump wants to divide us up by the color of our skin, our country of origin, our gender, our religion and our sexual orientation – we are going to do exactly the opposite. We are going to bring our people together – black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay and straight, young and old, men and women, native born and immigrant.

Because when we do that, we are going to finally create an economy and a government which works for all Americans, and not just the 1 percent.

The attack on progressive economic policy as “only benefiting white people”

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

I guess John Conyers didn't get this memo when he introduced a single payer bill in Congress every year since 2003. I guess the NAACP did not get this memo when they endorsed single payer. All the congresspeople of color who have co-sponsored single payer, from Pramila Jayapal to Barbara Lee to Raul Grijalva to James Clyburn to Brenda Lawrence…no one got this memo.

I guess Pres. Obama didn't get this memo either when he talked about free college, or raising the minimum wage.

What makes this attack so sick is that for decades, Republicans have used racism and stereotypes to try to gut social programs. Remember Reagan's "welfare queen" attack? Reagan cut Medicaid, Social Security, welfare, food stamps, and his regressive economic policies created massive inequality and harm. I guess Reagan cutting all those evil social programs means he was a champion for racial justice after all.

Seems like we should be voting for a regressive economic policy that will eliminate the evil social programs and privatize the evil Social Security. This will surely be a boon for racial justice. /s

White people should be sterilized

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

I am ASHAMED to be white, white people are nothing but genocidal killers, destroyers, polluters and warmongers, they caused both world wars, genocided jews, africans, native americans, enslaved Arabs and Africans and continue to treat people of colour as second class citizens the only way to build a new peaceful society is to forcibly sterilize all white people so they can no longer reproduce, that way we will faze out white people, pollution and stop global warming and the new vibrant populations of Africans and Asians will populate Europe and north America solving their overpopulation crisis !

we will also abolish all imperialistic western nations and erase them from history building a new peaceful world where the new continent of Eurabia will rise ! commenteditsharesavehi

This country has had too many straight, white old men presidents. We need something new, diverse, while Bernie is more of the same.

Electing Bernie Sanders would make him the 46th straight, white, old man in a row to be president. Why do you so called progressives want this trend to continue, when many younger, women and people of color candidates have the same policies he does, or in some cases even better policies? Bernie has more of an imperialistic foreign policy as evidence by his support for NATO, support for invading Yugoslavia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Somalia. Does the international proletariat not matter? Foreign policy is a huge reason why Tulsi Gabbard should be the preferential candidate to yet another old white man. She's diverse in her background and her ideas. She can bring people of varying sects together. With Bernie, he only attracts millennial whites, hence the sexist and racist Bernie Bros of 2016. He cannot motivate a diverse crowd like Tulsi can.

Tim Pool:”I was a fan of Bernie Sanders until he said white people don’t know what it’s like to be poor.” Joe Rogan:”That’s hilarious, go to WV and visit the fucking coal miners.” WVian here. He DID, and it’s on video. He asked white people from WV’s poorest county to explain poverty on camera.

Tim Pool was on JRE a couple days ago and said the above statement. Rogan assumed what Pool said was true and just ran with it. What's hilarious is he brought up WV, my home state, and said Sanders should visit to learn about poverty for white people.

As someone who followed Bernie for a long time, I can attest that he visited West Virginia many times, and he visited our poorest county, McDowell, 3 times. He hosted 2 events drawing attention to poverty in the area, both before and after those "white people can't be poor" comments. I think the gaffe in question was really him badly phrasing an argument about ghettos. Ghettos are definitionally racial creations. It’s true that white people in America don't know what it's like to be poor members OF A GHETTO. That's different from saying white people can't be poor in general.

It's not possible that Sanders would believe there was no such thing as white poverty, BEFORE, DURING(this one's a 1.5 hour seminar almost on poverty in WV's southern coalfields. And Sanders makes it clear the point of it is to give the people of McDowell a voice), and AFTER his presidential run(and that gaffe), he has been drawing public awareness to one of the worst areas for white poverty in the country. More than that, he gave the people of McDowell a microphone and asked them to speak about their own experiences relating to living their lives in poverty.

People should give others the benefit of the doubt if something is said at face value that contradicts everything they've stood for before and after what was said. I think Sanders's comments were just a gaffe resulting from clumsy word choice. I think context + Sanders's clear history prove he believes in white poverty and is concerned about it. Finally I think some lazy-minded people looking to confirm their own pre-conceived biases screened Sanders's word choice to make him look like he didn't care about poor white people, when that's obviously not true.

According To That Monmouth Poll Where Bernie Has The Highest “Least Like To Be The Nominee Score” It Comes From Older, Moderate Or Conservative, White, College Educated Men. Take That Narrative! Data Inside.

https://www.monmouth.edu/polling-institute/documents/monmouthpoll_us_020419.pdf/

According to the data tabs on the relevant question here are the Sanders numbers: 13% among men vs 8% among women 9% among liberals vs 11% among moderates and conservatives 9% among people under 50 vs 11% among 50 and older 7% among whites without a college degree vs 15% among those with a college degree 10% among white voters and 10% among non-white voters

There is no more detailed age breakdown but we know what it would show. There is no data on non-white voters with or without degrees. There is no data about social democrats, leftists, or socialists because they only go to liberal.
