OK...so, I just did this an hour ago.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen....I am now fully #Berned.

@BernieSanders @GabbyQuinteros How did I get to the point of finally pulling the trigger for the senior Senator from Vermont?

Two years of progress by him, and one night of being pushed over the cliff by his detractors.

An explanation follows.
@BernieSanders @GabbyQuinteros For the past 3 years, I've been more of an understanding critic of Senator Sanders from the Indy Left. There were things that I liked from him, like his economic populism and his legacy of being a social progressive...

#Bernie2020 is also following right along with #China/Communist Party’s 2050 world domination plan with his own #GreenScam.

Funny how all the #Democrats and Europe are so hell bent on helping China and Russia, who aren’t following the “green rules” try to weaken the US.
And there it is...more “free stuff” from Bernie, lmao. Funny because I recently said Dems would be giving away “free” cars next.

Ohh, but he doesn’t stop there. He’s also promising free heating and cooling.
More “free” stuff that the MIDDLE CLASS would end up paying for.

More strict regulations on businesses, forcing them to go 100% green, which, of course, would also mean their costs would be passed along to us.

Hi @egg509!

I feel as though we need to have a discussion about your 3 tweets below 👇🏾

I invite you to have an adult conversation with me. Allow me to address your tweets directly, mmk? /1

#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NoMiddleGround
Let's tackle your tweet about how us Berners have no respect, morals, integrity etc.

We actually do! And a LOT of it!

Bernie's movement is a moral movement which has lots of similarities to MLK's #PoorPeoplesCampaign.

#Benie2020 /2
We believe in human rights that many Democrats themselves don't believe, like giving those incarcerated the right to vote as example. We also believe things like EDU are human rights along with housing.

Fam, we need to have a talk about Bernie & Tulsi.
I realize this may lose me a few followers but it must be said.

Can we all just please knock off the bullshit about Bernie & Tulsi already, please? They're friends and allies. Now some of you may not like that.
#Bernie2020 /1
The reality is Tulsi & Bernie have worked together in the past and once Tulsi drops out, she will be giving Bernie her delegates.

Some of you seem to be down in a hole with this & can't see the forest through the trees. #Bernie2020 /2
This is a PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, not a dick measuring contest between Tulsi & Bernie. Those of you trashing Tulsi are actually hurting Bernie & his campaign. You need to keep your eyes on the prize here. We need allies, we need votes in the general! #Bernie2020 /3

In my opinion, we have mass shootings because we have poor living and working conditions (especially undignified treatment of workers), a hyper-individualistic, selfish, and cruel culture, and rampant ideologies that reductively and ferociously blame powerless groups (1)
for problems that do and don't exist. All of those things have been propagated by both Democrats and Republicans. From McKinley to Kennedy to Reagan, the Clintons, the Bushes and Trump, they're all oligarchs that twisted our society and culture into the violent, demented (2)
country it is today through pro-oligarchy, pro-violence, anti-community, anti-collective policies, even if the Dems slap a smiley face on it.

And surprise, the U.S. was never culturally enlightened. It was a cultural backwater until WW2, before which you usually had (3)

All of the things that Russia didn't make @KamalaHarris do...

A thread:
Harris talks the talk, but why does her record speak to terrible policies that disproportionately affected people of color and poor folks?

Why did she fight to keep civil asset forfieture in place?
Why did she neglect to prosecute Treasury Sec Steve Mnuchin, during the foreclosure crisis, when he was running OneWest and was responsible for thousands losing their homes due to shady practices? (He's our damn Treasury Secretary, now, ffs)
Why didn't she course correct when she saw that her truancy efforts were causing harm, to mostly minority women?

Why did she fight so hard to keep wrongful convictions in place?

How many times has she flip-flopped in the past few weeks?

From this article- "About one-third of current Medicare enrollees are covered through Medicare Advantage."

From same publisher in another piece abt MA- "Insurance companies continue to promote MA plans heavily because of their great profitability."
"Medicare Advantage"

What is the 'advantage' in Medicare Advantage?
How does this 'advantage' come about?
Who holds the 'advantage'?

Insurance companies continue to promote MA plans heavily because of their great profitability (to the ins co, of course).
tarbell.org/2019/01/medica…
"Although these companies take in a tremendous amount of taxpayer money, and have immense power regarding how to distribute these funds, a cloud of secrecy shields from public view their financial operations and profitability."

Here's the scene at The Olde Walkerville Pharmacy in Windsor ahead of a visit by US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders #BernieSanders2020 #YQG @CTVWindsor
There's plenty of local support for the 'Caravan to Canada' Sanders is joining. The caravans see Americans come to Canada to buy life-saving insulin that can be 10x more expensive stateside #BernieSanders2020 #YQG @CTVWindsor

Today's speech by @BernieSanders on #MedicareForAll didn't do a great job hitting the major concerns of seniors on current medicare. It did MUCH better than previous speeches but missed a couple crucial selling points.
/2

The pain points for seniors on medicare right now that #Medicareforall SOLVES are:

No more drug copays
No fees
No supplemental insurance needed
No dental
No vision
No hearing
No long term care
/3

All those pain points are addressed in his plan.

We need to do a better job communicating them succinctly and clearly to seniors today. He came much closer with clear call-outs on the additions of dental, vision, and hearing. All good. But major concerns remained unaddressed

Kremlin media outlets Sputnik and RT recently got de-invited to the International Conference on Media Freedom and some folks ain't happy. #WednesdayWisdom

cc: @ZellaQuixote
We downloaded tweets from the last 10 days containing "media", "freedom", and "RT" or "Sputnik" and filtered out a couple of early false positives. 9.4% of tweets are automated (average for most datasets of this sort is roughly 3%).
The first on-topic tweet about RT/Sputnik being barred from the conference came from @BotsPutin, which probably isn't a bot although many of the other early accounts to tweet about the subject are in fact automated (mostly newsbots linking custom collections of news sites.)
Read 9 tweets
We started looking at automated activity (and potentially other aspects of) tweets containing various #<candidate first or last name>2020 hashtags (e.g., #Warren2020, #Kamala2020, #Bernie2020, etc.) We examined tweets from Jan 1st - July 3rd, 2019.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
Looking more closely at the 2020 hashtags that have both a significant percentage (we used 10% as a cutoff, 3%-ish is average) of automated activity and at least 1000 tweets, we see sizable volume for tweets posted via VK (Russian Facebook-esque social network.) What's the deal?
The VK activity in the 2020 hashtags comes from 21 very similarly-named accounts. Account names are the display name with "Im" prepended (e.g., "Alberta Swift" = "@ImAlbertaSwift.) All tweets were posted via VK, and none tweeted before 2018 (despite some being created in 2015.)

Bernie Sanders - Record of Anti-Black Votes, Sexism and Russia

A THREAD
1/ Bernie Voted For The 1994 Crime Bill

Bernie is a Cop? Bernie Sanders was fully aware of the damage the 1994 Crime Bill would do to minorities, yet he still voted for it and was proud of his vote and Tough on Crime approach when he ran for the Senate.
2/ Bernie Sanders voted for policies/laws that disproportionately affected Black and brown people:

- Death Penalty expansion

- Stricter penalties against Immigrants, Drug dealers and Juveniles

- Three Strikes Law

@rheaume76 Danielle, I am going to be absolute best to explain things to you in hopes you understand & I'll be civil in the process, ok? I promise. If you have any questions, please ask.

Let's go! /1

#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NoMiddleGround
@rheaume76 You call us sexist but in reality, we're not sexist, we're pissed as hell. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with ones gender but with the fact that many of our elected officials in DC don't represent us, the people, any longer.

#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NoMiddleGround
@rheaume76 Look what's happening right now as an example. Pelosi caving to Trump's demand over funds at the border. Do you honestly believe THAT is acceptable? I don't. Many don't.

See, us Berners are sick of Democrats who act like Republicans.

Why I support bernie Sanders as an Iraqi : I grew up in a war torn country all my life . I started being conscious to the world with the invasion of my country in 2003. I had my childhood upbringing during the 2007 civil war. And my teenage years during ISIS rising in 2014 1/
During those years there’s one constant theme, Confusion. I was a young kid who couldn’t understand anything and why all of these things happened. During ISIS war I had a deep depression because I was confused about life and my purpose in it 2/
Seeing Isis flags couple 100s of meters away from me shook me to my core. The stories of fleeing families from areas controlled by Isis and the genocide of over 2000 cadet in speicher camp. Almost losing my brother and father in 2 bombs attack on the Masjid near our home 3/

Thread regarding #Sanders2020

1. Folks think Bernie was selfish for running in '16. I'm NOT one of them. I think he knew the American people weren't going to vote for HRC, & understood clearly the threat that Trump was to this country & the world; & wanted to inspire us.
2. For 4 decades Bernie's message has been consistent. He has ALWAYS been #ForThePeople. He has NEVER sold out. Is he perfect? No, there is no perfect human being, but he's definitely the best we have in the field without question.
3. I think Bernie looked at his options & did an unselfish thing. I think it's why the 2016 campaign struggled. This time around I am prouder than ever to support his campaign & actually volunteering. I don't know how safe our elections are, if they'll cheat, but I have to try.

🔥Warren is not a progressive thread.

Feel free to share/bookmark to Warren supporters that say otherwise.
(1/?) First example is Warren endorsing centrist Hillary Clinton in 2016, she did not endorse the progressive (Bernie) despite claiming she is a progressive. She played into the hands of identity politics.
(2/?) Second example is Warren clapping and standing up for Trump attacking socialism. M4A, Free public college, universal child-care, etc... are socialistic programs. Is she not for them? Capitalists are ruining our country.

Skipping these questions, @RepKatiePorter said, “Well, Bill, your mother made a choice, and we all are living with the consequences of it.”

What if companies like Walmart, Exxon, Amazon, Apple, GE, etc all paid taxes? What if in order to get tax breaks, they had to work together to purchase huge parcels of land where communities were built using container homes to house the homeless & poor?
/1
What if companies had to work for their tax breaks in ways which helped solve social issues? What if companies were treated like employees; work hard & get a raise? But in the form of tax breaks?
/2
THINK. How many hospitals are sitting empty and/or abandoned around the country? How many factories sit forgotten about? What if these companies rehabed them into apartments for the poor & homeless? /3

Climate Change. The biggest issue for voters in 2020.

Joe Biden? he doesn't support a #GreenNewDeal and wants an incremental approach. We have 12 year to fix shit. He'll kill us all.

Joe Biden is completely out of touch with the day & age we're living when when it comes to climate change.

For those believing or making accusations, based on 2015 DNC false info, of why Bernie launched #BernApp voter database, instead of using shared DNC VAN voter file database, here are facts why Bernie needed separate voter file database from #DNC.

#Vote #Bernie2020 #Montana
2/
In Dec. 2015, NGP VAN, campaign info data company, hired by DNC, made a bug "tweak to its system" which dropped the firewall between campaigns, allowing them to briefly see other candidates voter file data. Also in 2008 between Obama/HRC.

#DNC #Vote #Bernie2020 #BernApp
3/
Contrary to #DNC, HRC camp & MSM accusations, Sanders' camp did not download or copy any HRC data, as indy investigation proved.

DNC DW Schultz penalized Sanders only, suspending access to voter database. She also blocked her opponent @Tim_Canova.
