✔️#Biden is not a "moderate" #dem. He's running on a platform to the left of Obama & Hillary. If elected, he'd be the most #progressive president in our lifetimes.

This thread fact-checks a graphic circulated by #Sanders supporters that equates Biden & Trump.
✔️#Biden supports universal healthcare. He proposes adding a singlepayer Medicare option to the #ACA, open to individuals & employers. It could be immediately implemented, unlike #MedicareForAll which has a 4-yr transition.

✔️#Sanders introduced #M4A. It has 15 Senate votes.
✔️#Biden's plan to add singlepayer Medicare option to ACA follows the public/private hybrid that's most commonly used by countries with universal healthcare.

✔️Trump admin has filed suit to overturn the ACA & protections for people w/ preexisting conditions.

Now that two poll workers in Florida are infected with #COVID19 let's reflect on the incredible ability of the #Biden campaign and the @DNC to be wrong about everything. @BernieSanders again, is on the right side of history.

#SANDERS CONCEDED THE RACE 3/11, said millions decided his "friend Joe #Biden" was more likely to beat Trump. No blaming the #DNC, no cries of rigged election. He began: my #1 goal is defeating Trump. Time for ALL #Sanders fans & #dems to unite. c-span.org/video/?c486304…
#Bernie counted on overperforming w/ young voters, but nearly 3% fewer people under 30 voted in 20 compared to 16. This was the only demographic group where Sanders had an advantage. The drop in youth vote & the surge in ALL OTHER groups (who voted #Biden) cost Sanders the race.
#Sanders earned LESS of the vote in EVERY RACE in '20 when compared to '16. On average, he underperformed by 17.6%. He did 35.4% worse in VT. He was down 10.9% in #DemocratsAbroad primary this weekend.

WOW.

@NYGovCuomo is delivering one of the most eloquent and passionate speeches about this #COVID19 #pandemic I've seen.

I'm not a supporter of his, but if establishment Dems want one of their own to take on Trump, it should be him.

#AndrewCuomo
And to be crystal clear: I'm 100% #NotMeUs because it's this corrupt system that has set us up for disaster. We need to overhaul the whole damn thing.
Please read my thread carefully:

I'm drawing the contrast between #Cuomo and #Biden.

I don't support #Cuomo.

I'm fully with #NotMeUs.

But facts are facts. And if the Dem establishment thinks Biden is taking on Trump during this crisis, they are grossly mistaken.

In EVERY state, #Sanders has done less well in 2020 than he did in 2016, underperforming by an average 17.6%.

In Vermont, for example, he won only 50.7% of the vote in '20, a drop of 35.4% from his '16 win. / thread
#Sanders' underperformance is partly explained by his failure to get new & young voters to the polls. In nearly every primary thru early March, fewer of those voters turned out than they did in '16.

.@CNN exit polls show nearly 3% fewer voters under 30 voted in '20 than they did in '16. #Bernie Sanders needed to overperform with this demographic.

Email to #Bernie shows campaign's pollster predicted he was within 4 points of #Biden in South Carolina. 2 days later, Biden blew out SC by nearly 30 points, turning the race around.

How Sanders' run came undone: thread int.nyt.com/data/documenth…
In Jan, @ZephyrTeachout, a law prof allied w/ #Sanders, wrote an op-ed alleging #Biden had “a big corruption problem," & the campaign sent it to everyone on its large email list.

✔️ #Sanders "put a stop to it. 'It is absolutely not my view that Joe is corrupt in any way.'"
In Feb, VT Rep @PeterWelch implored #Sanders to "ease up" on his attacks of #democrats. Welch believed it "sounded exclusionary to ordinary people backing other candidates, ... a lot of voters who are just everyday voters, who decided to vote for other #Dems" (NYT 3/21).

Hunter Biden picked up his brother, Beau's widow Hallie, almost immediately. Wow. So this is why Joe Biden didn't run in 2016. Not because he was grief stricken.

These ppl have zero feelings.

This was at the same time that 1 of his biggest donors, my abuser had been outed with a news story abt me being his sex slave...and so possibly there were going to be a couple of scandals.

Hunter + Hallie split up last year. Joe Biden thinks coast clear.

People, I mean this sincerely: #whereisjoe?

Trump is in front of the cameras every day, reassuring people, putting on the appearance of "leadership."

Where is #Biden? Why isn't he dominating the airwaves???
And: Two new polls show Trump with majority approval on his handling of the #pandemic.

If Dem leaders think this crisis will definitely damage him, they are greatly mistaken.

If they cede the appearance of leadership to him, it's a major problem.

THREAD — HOW (NOT) TO TALK TO #BERNIE VOTERS

You want #NotMeUs to listen to you? Here's how:

1. No consolation prizes (as in "aww thanks, you moved the conversation left.") The progressive movement wants to overhaul a corrupt system, not settle for cosmetic language changes.
2. Stop treating them as a monolith of "bros." #NotMeUs is multi-generational and highly diverse. Enough erasure. Enough reducing them to Twitter trolls. Appreciate who they are: working people for whom the status quo (perpetuated by both parties) can be a death sentence.
3. Acknowledge their concerns about #Biden and the entire party leadership. You may see no problems with Democratic leaders, but to #NotMeUs (myself included) they have failed to effectively oppose GOP extremism and have normalized Trump. And we're all paying a steep price.

HONESTY

I'm solidly with #Bernie and #NotMeUs, but I'm relieved to see #Biden this sharp at the #DemDebate. I deeply disagree with his policies and have opposed his candidacy, but if he's the nominee, I hope this is the Biden who shows up against Trump. Our future depends on it.
And let me reiterate: I am vehemently opposed to perpetuating the status quo and rewarding the Dem leadership that has allowed GOP extremism to flourish. #Bernie represents the future of the Democratic Party and I will strongly support #NotMeUs no matter what the primary outcome.
Let me elaborate: I'm using "sharp" as a contrast to the GOP talking point that #Biden in serious cognitive decline.

#Bernie is both sharp AND right on the issues.

THREAD — THE DARK SIDE OF #VoteBlueNoMatterWho

Polls show an overwhelming majority of #Bernie supporters would vote for #Biden over Trump.

As for me, I've never voted for (or donated to) a Republican in my entire life. And I never will. It's a party of rightwing extremism.
Given the choice of Biden or Trump, I'd vote for Biden in a heartbeat.

That said, unthinkingly supporting anyone who puts a D next to their name is a recipe for moral and electoral disaster.

It is how the establishment maintains power and prevents change.

Don't fall for it...
In my 20 years in politics, the SAME Dem leaders, including #Biden and #Pelosi, have utterly failed to stop the march of GOP dominance/extremism.

They went along with Bush's war crimes, then rehabilitated his image. They have been dangerously inept against Trump and his cronies.

1/ The absolute, No. 1 priority for this election is to defeat #Trump - because if he's re-elected, not only will Progressive policy initiatives be moot, we will also see further regression in our rights and our democratic foundations. So, who is best positioned to beat Trump? +
2/ #Biden was not my 1st choice for president. However, I believe he is the one best positioned to defeat #Trump; here's why:

a) He is the only candidate who has consistently polled well against Trump in swing/purple states, which will be required to reach 270 electoral votes +
3/
b) #Biden has strong support from the Black community - an absolute must for any Democrat to win an election

c) Biden will have a strong, positive effect on down-ballot races, both with voters and donors

THREAD -- ON #BIDEN'S STATE OF MIND

I don't believe in armchair diagnosis and I've avoided discussing Biden's mental state.

But Dems MUST acknowledge attack lines against potential nominees.

With #Bernie, it's socialism.

With Biden, it's that he's not well enough to be POTUS.
A cursory look at rightwing media indicates #Biden's mental state is Hillary's emails. (It's NOT Burisma, though that will also be an attack.) And the corporate media will amplify it if Biden is the nominee, just as they did with Hillary's health. EVERY slip-up will be magnified.
Every testy exchange will be played and replayed if #Biden is the nominee. Every pause, every bungled phrase, every instance of forgetfulness, no matter how innocent.

Trump will be prepped to goad Biden at debates into slipping up.

Dems MUST be ready for what's coming.

With the GOP & @DrJillStein's ridiculous claims of #BidensCognitiveDecline, I went back through hundreds of videos of Biden from 9-30 yrs ago to prove that Biden's stuttering issues and gaffes are nothing new. Please follow and share this thread, as I will continue to add more.
(THREAD) Here is another example of Joe Biden stuttering 18 years ago. #BidensCognitiveDecline is this election cycle's "but her emails." I literally have dozens of these videos that I will continue to share in this thread. Please RETWEET and follow.
(THREAD) Here is an example of Joe Biden 12 years ago, calling the word "JOBS" a "three letter word." No, there is no #BidensCognitiveDecline. He's just a self-proclaimed gaffe-machine. That's just @JoeBiden. More of these videos coming.

#Biden was 1st to introduce a #ClimateChange bill. His 1986 Global Climate Protection Act died in committee, but Reagan signed a version of into law when Biden successfully attached it as an amendment to a State Dept funding bill. /thread politifact.com/factchecks/201…
#Biden, introducing his #GlobalWarming bill in Jan 1987: "Life on this planet exists only under highly specialized circumstances" & "even a small rise in temperature could disrupt the entire complicated environment that has nurtured life as we know it." @PolitiFact
In 1/87 Senate speech, #Biden said #ClimateChange was a bigger threat than the USSR: Reagan told Gorbachev "‘that if we had an invasion from Mars, both sides would put aside our differences.’ While not an exterrestrial threat, global warming could prove no less dangerous."

Joe Biden's unreported scandal. BCCI. CIA.

Joseph Biden has been a Delaware Senator since he won the 1972 election. He served as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee from 1987-1995 where he had oversight authority for
for the Department of Justice at the height of the S&L scandal, and the investigation into BCCl, dubbed the Bank of Crooks + Criminals by Robert Gates, at that time the Deputy Director of the CIA.

He, also, served as an influential member of the Foreign Relations Committee.
Biden's connection to prominent figures in the Savings & Loan disaster dates back to the mid -70s, when he was a political favorite of Jake and C.H. Butcher, tycoons in the S&L industry until the collapse of their banking empire in 1984, which cost the Federal Deposit Insurance

No surprise here - that the CCP/#China endorses #Biden.

China officials did previously say that they’d do everything in their power to prevent Trump from winning again.
They’re wrong, tho, by saying Sanders is against CCP ideology. Sanders platform consists of government takeovers of business, eradicating gas and oil which China (and Russia) would LOVE, implementing the #GreenScam which they’d also love bc they’d be making all the green procucts
Sanders may be against some of their ideology, but not all of it.
