After the CNN debate wherein #Handshakegate took place, Tucker Carlson did a good round-up on CNN’s war on Bernie Sanders.
Basically, CNN printed the “Bernie says a woman can’t win” story ostensibly to push some kind of pro-Liz, pro-woman, #BelieveAllWomen story. In actual fact, CNN, along with the rest of the Jewish media, is simply shilling for Liz as a way to shill for Joe Biden.
There is zero chance that Liz can win the nomination.
These are the two possible options:
- Liz sucks enough of Bernie’s support that Biden wins the nomination
- Liz falls and her support goes to Bernie and Bernie wins the nomination
I am staunchly #TeamBernie.
There is no bad outcome.
If Bernie doesn’t win, if he’s the nominee, he’s going to force Donald Trump to back down on all of this Jewish war stuff, and return to the populism he promoted in 2016.
If Bernie does win, who knows what the hell he’ll do, but it will have to be more interesting than the current state of The Donald Trump Show, which has been absolute crap since halfway through the second season.
CNN’s latest attack on Bernie Sanders is in the form of an article written by one Joe Lockheart.
It’s actually a reminder to a lot of people of why I’ve never really been anti-Bernie, despite the fact that he is a communist Jew.
The bizarre part is that Joe frames the article as “these are the reasons why we can’t allow Bernie to win the nomination, because they will be a problem for him in the general” – before he goes on to list off a bunch of positions Bernie used to have that would appeal directly to Trump supporters.
Lockheart writes for CNN:
As a party loyalist, as opposed to someone supporting an individual candidate, the most important thing to me is nominating a candidate who can win in the general election. And a key component of that goal is making sure your party’s nominee is fully vetted and scrutinized before they win the nomination, not after.
There are several reasons for this. First, you want to make sure the nominee can take a punch, because once the opposing party gets involved, you can be sure these will be delivered aggressively. Second, and as important, you want to fully air all controversial statements, votes and other activities before the general election, so that your nominee can legitimately claim these issues are old news and have been addressed. There is nothing more dangerous than having a new issue raised by your general election opponent at a key moment in the race.
Thus, while it may seem counter-intuitive, I want all the primary candidates to scrutinize their opponents, attack their records and have full coverage of it in the media. These scrutiny stories need three elements — good opposition research, an enterprising reporter and another candidate willing to make the case in public for the relevance of the information.
In the race for the Democratic nomination, the process has worked fairly well. Opposition researchers, reporters and other candidates have made strong cases raising questions about the records of former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. With differing degrees of success, each of these candidates has been forced to deal with their own political vulnerabilities. At a minimum, most of what President Donald Trump will attack them on has already been litigated in the primary run.
The exception to this rule, and a worry to many Democrats, has been the relatively lax scrutiny of Senator Bernie Sanders.
“I’m just concerned that this guy who my network has spent thousand upon thousands of hours attacking hasn’t been ‘scrutinized’ enough, my fellow heterosexual non-pedophiles.”
To be sure, Sanders’ signature idea — Medicare for All — has been dissected and debated. And the staggering total cost and severe political liabilities of Sanders’ full agenda is now beginning to be examined, as my CNN colleague Ronald Brownstein wrote recently.
However, there has been far too little discussion of Sanders’ 50-year record, nor have we seen a real view of how he would defend that record against a Republican onslaught.
Though Trump would have an army of researchers digging into his past in courthouses and video archives, a few Google searches reveal a vast trove of controversial information that I’m confident is unknown to most Democratic primary voters. Even if none of these are themselves politically fatal, the totality would seem to offer the Trump campaign an enormous set of targets.
“Now, my non-pedophile heterosexuals, let me list off a list of things that Trump will really be able to use against Bernie in the general.”
If there’s one thing Americans love, it’s the CIA.
And the Pentagon.
In the 1970’s, Sanders called for the abolition of the CIA, reducing the military, and returning to local militias, and the Coast Guard, to defend the homeland. Once in Congress, he called for spending cuts of 50% in the Pentagon’s budget.
And if there’s one thing Americans hate, it’s totally legitimate sexual harassment allegations.
The allegations of sexual harassment by members of his 2016 campaign team were covered (Sanders said he didn’t know about the allegations during his campaign but apologized), but little attention was paid to an article he wrote in 1969, exploring studies on stress and wondering if there could be a link between what parents taught their daughters about sexual mores and their child’s likelihood of developing breast cancer.
And how about the fact that Bernie was against Barack Obama?
In 2011, he suggested several times that there would be value in a primary campaign against Barack Obama, one of the most revered figures in the Democratic Party. And in 2018, on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., Sanders went to Jackson, Mississippi, and trashed the party and its first African American president. Speaking to a mostly black crowd, Sanders said, “The business model, if you like, of the Democratic Party for the last 15 years or so has been a failure … People sometimes don’t see that because there was a charismatic individual named Barack Obama. He was obviously an extraordinary candidate, brilliant guy.”
Or the fact that he used to be strongly in favor of the Second Amendment?
It’s well-known that Sanders has flipped his position on guns. He now says he supports gun safety, but in Congress, he initially voted against the Brady Bill, which requires prospective handgun buyers to wait up to five business days while a background check is conducted before completing a purchase, and later supported legislation immunizing the gun industry from several types of lawsuits.
Few are aware that before he got to Congress, he was even more radical. In 1972, he backed a political platform’s call for the abolition of all laws that interfere with the constitutional right of citizens to bear arms.
So… let me just recap this.
He goes on to say that Trump and his Russian hackers will spread this information all over the internet to stop Bernie.
Let me just recap this.
CNN is telling its Democrat audience that in a general election, Donald Trump (and Russian hackers) will attack Bernie Sanders for:
- Being against the CIA
- Being against the military industrial complex
- Sexual harassment hoaxes thrown at the Sanders campaign
- Being against Barack Obama
- Being too pro-gun
I wonder if he’ll also attack Bernie for being a Charlottesville neo-Nazi style anti-immigration advocate as late as 2015?
I’m not even going to say that Trump won’t attack Bernie Sanders over any of these things.
He may well do so.
Donald Trump does all kinds of weird, stupid things.
But it would do the opposite of what CNN is claiming – it would HELP Bernie.
It’s very clear that Bernie’s historical positions are much better than those of Donald Trump.
Although to be fair, the same can be said of CNN’s favored candidate Joe Biden, who spent most of his life trying to put most or all black people in prison.
And honestly, Trump is very likely to attack Joe Biden for being pro-black imprisonment.
And he can do so legitimately, as Donald Trump has released more blacks from prison than any administration in American history.
Trump will probably also attack Biden for claiming that Jews run the media and use it to promote homosexuality.
