    That is funny " Bernie is not now and never has been a Democrat. He just runs for president on our ticket because if he ran as a Socialist or Communist he would be lucky to get 10 per cent of the vote"
    since Bernie is polling at the top or near the top in all the polls.

    He could win your party's nomination
    In fact, he is the current Vegas favorite Democratic Nomination Odds: Bernie Now Favorite, Booker Drops Out

    The entire Biden family is finally beginning to get some much deserved scrutiny. From the NYPost today -- "How five members of Joe Biden’s family got rich through his connections"

    James Biden - younger brother - "James’ White House visits dovetailed with his overseas business dealings, and his commercial opportunities flourished during his brother’s tenure as vice president...."

    Hunter Biden - "... one of the most troubling Burnham ventures was here in the United States, in which Burnham became the center of a federal investigation involving a $60 million fraud scheme against one of the poorest Indian tribes in America, the Oglala Sioux. Devon Archer was arrested in New York in May 2016 and charged with “orchestrating a scheme to defraud investors and a Native American tribal entity of tens of millions of dollars.” Other victims of the fraud included several public and union pension plans. Although Hunter Biden was not charged in the case, his fingerprints were all over Burnham...."

    Howard Krein - married to Joe’s youngest daughter. "It would be a dream for any new company to announce their launch in the Oval Office at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."

    Frank Biden - brother. "Joe Biden’s trip to Costa Rica came at a fortuitous time for his brother Frank, who was busy working deals in the country."

    Valerie Biden Owens - sister. "The firm received large fees from the Biden campaigns that Valerie was running. Two and a half million dollars in consulting fees ..."​

    I see the Warren campaign is using the Bee to get their message out.

    At the top in a ten person race as in he's polling at around 20 per cent-----which works out to about 10 percent of the electorate. If he gets the nomination he will do as well as McGovern did. Remember him? The last "Progressive" to win the democratic nomination. At least he was a Democrat, something Bernie has never claimed to be and does not claim to be now. He is a revolutionary socialist.

    What you are saying is that if Bernie wins the nomination, Trumpers can’t gloat over his inevitable 2020 election win. Who gloats inevitable victories? Not unreasonable.

    Funniest line about the NYT's endorsement
    "At least they didn’t say “everyone” and give them all a participation trophy. "

    Bloomberg now says he will spend $2B
    It's refreshing to see that there is someone other than Prince Harry who is willing flush good money down the toilet.

    I guessed they’d push Warren (only). Klobuchar would be the most sensible nominee, and it’s refreshing to see The Times promote her, but she lacks the media power and charisma. Amy K’s best shot is in a contested/brokered convention (which might actually happen this year). She seems to be lots of folks’ second choice. That also often points to a VP nomination.

    Trump will have some fun with “Snow Lady.” She’ll fight back hard, unlike Hillary.

    They try to say their policy positions are basically the same, which is false (Warren is much more radical).

    But I think the reason they did this is because if they were afraid that if they didnt include Klobuchar, they could be called sexist, white, male, CISgendered Nazis.

    Policy-wise Klobuchar is basically Biden without a d!ck and dementia.

    So it turns out Elizabeth Warren's son-in-law has close ties with the Iranian Govt and has produced multiple films pushing Iranian propaganda.

    And get this -- the full film credits have now been mysteriously been scrubbed, at least on the web versions

    She never takes a firm position with regard to Iran. Is this why?

    Team Biden getting nervous over Ukraine talk not going away
    So they finally respond, which was probably a mistake
