Senator @ewarren has, in an absurd turn of events, been duped by the establishment to weaponize Bernie’s online popularity against him, as an excuse for her silent endorsement of @joebiden!


In her post-“Super Tuesday” interview with @maddow, @ewarren comforted her core supporter base by showing her continued commitment to both help working families and fight for a female President.

@ewarren also gave voice to victims of online harassment, including publication of personal information, and pointed a finger at the campaign of @berniesanders specifically, feeding into the #BernieBros narrative.

THREAD: Bernie has gotten a lot of criticism due to his lack of bills passed in his name. I think it's unfair to judge a lawmaker on that only. Bernie has had the opportunity to vote his interests for decades. That policy support is worthy of discussion. H/T MANY 1/
Opposed efforts to increase funding for advanced technology projects…
Opposed federal funding to help the homeless…

“The Chicago Teachers Union has always fought to make big changes. Collectively, we have fought against racial and economic disparities, attempts to close and privatize our public schools, and powerful special interests,” CTU Vice President Stacy Davis Gates said.
“And now, our fight for high-quality schools and thriving neighborhoods take us to the ballot box. And let’s be real, our nation needs a political revolution.
“Black mothers and educators like me need a candidate that will fight for all our students and ensure they live in a society where student loan debt isn’t a burden and access to healthcare is a human right.

Ok Pete,

Medicare For All is estimated to cost $47T over 10 YRS.

$30T of that is the projected total of the MONEY ALREADY BEING SPENT by local, state and federal budgets!!! Through Medicare, Medicaid, and the VA! (We don’t ‘need to pay’ for these, they exist)

Cont. ⬇️
The ADDITIONAL costs to gov’t spending to switch to a single payer sys. would be $17T

We negotiate drug prices and cost of medical devices, eliminate the majority of administrative cost from 13% down to the current 2% of Medicare, and control the prices of procedures.

When we do those three things, we reduce the overall cost of healthcare. The remaining $17T is ‘paid for’ in Bernie’s plan. These are the taxes that will get us the revenue needed.

1. Creating a 4 percent income-based premium paid by employees, exempting the first $29,000.

1/Here are 2 charts from @FPRI, they're keeping track of Foreign Influence. Clint Watts, formerly of the F.B.I who runs FPRI clearly knew Russia was trying to influence our Democratic Primary early on in 2019.

Russia's favorite candidates: Sanders and Tulsi
Least Favorite: Biden
@FPRI 2/It was already clearly laid out in the Mueller report that Russia preferred Sanders over Clinton.

"Russian interference sought to boost Bernie Sanders in 2016."

Why did Russia boost Sanders in the 1st place? Why are they still doing it? (Seems clear.)

@FPRI 3/Sanders, like Trump, have DOWNPLAYED Russia assisting his campaign. When Sanders was asked when he knew Russia was assisting his campaign, he demurred saying:

"We knew what we knew when we knew it, and that's about all that I can say."

JOBS...Money to pay bills, put food on the table.
They don’t care if their boss makes more money.
They’ve never gotten a job from a poor person.
We want a chance to succeed... or fail.
@realDonaldTrump knows both.
He embodies the American spirit!
2 Yes he was born into a wealthy family... but wealth starts with poverty, and I bet if you really wanted you’d do whatever it takes to be like @realDonaldTrump, and have your kids grow up with advantages.
If you say “NO” then you’re a liar who hates your kids.
3 @realDonaldTrump is a man I can identify with.
No I was not born into wealth and I’m not wealthy, but I have been poor and on welfare,and hated it! It’s a trap... I pulled myself up by my bootstraps @AOC and joined the Army to provide for my kids.

Why Andrew Yang is not for America. His first plan, most comprehensive plan, is UBI(1,000 a month). The biggest issue with this is it doesn’t stack with things like Snap, Tanf, SSI, and many more programs people rely on.
If you go to Andrew Yang's site, he claims it stacks with Social Security Disability... the thing is, not everyone who is disabled has worked enough to collect Social Security, so they get SSI instead. You cannot collect SSI AND UBI at the same time. You must choose one.
Yang's site makes the claim that "Even some people who receive more than $1,000 a month in SSI would choose to take the Freedom Dividend because it has no preconditions."

In 2008 I watched #RonPaul cheated out of winning the #RNC National Convention. #WeThePeople watched the #PartyElite change the rules, on the floor, and #RigTheVote.

We organized and cleaned out establishment #OldGuard #Republicans, voted them out, volunteered, participated
In 2016 I watched #FeelTheBern supporters lied to - their votes rigged by @HillaryClinton @DWStweets and thrown away. Many of them obediently fell in line, shut up, and voted for one of the most corrupt politicians of the modern era.
With @realDonaldTrump we have a reformist:
* gutted the #GOP
* appointed over 170 federal judges and counting
* placed 5 #FederalReserve Governors and promoted Powell to Chairman ( Think #Restructure ) - thus controlling it
* Killed a Globalist #NewWorldOrder Trade Deal #TPP

@ZellaQuixote A duo of extremely similar real estate bots (@RealtorFairfax and @FairfaxVAAgent) were the first two automated accounts to retweet the preceding tweet. Based on a brief jaunt through their timelines, they seem more focused on retweeting political hashtags than real estate.
@ZellaQuixote @RealtorFairfax @FairfaxVAAgent The third bot retweet comes to us courtesy of @BernieBot_2020, which retweets various Sanders-related hashtags (#Bernie2020, #FeelTheBern, #NotMeUS, and #NoMiddleGround.) We've run across it before.

Journalists comparing Bernie to Trump is what we should come to expect the same day 100s of Bernie supporters post heartfelt videos about their struggles with student loan debt, an anti-immigrant immigrantion system, our racist criminal justice system, and our health care system
Like, fuck, read the goddamn internet.
I bet not a single person saying Bernie is Trump can tell me how the campaign does volunteer intake. They'll tweet until the weeee hours of the morning about how Bernie is like Trump "because crowd sizes," but none of these PAID RESEARCHERS know why that matters to the campaign.

A short thread on Elizabeth Warren's daughter and co-author of "The Two-Income Trap" (2004) and "All Your Worth" (2006) Amelia Warren Tyagi.

Just some information I learned recently #FeelTheBern #Bernie2020 #Warren2020 #Election2020 @HootHootBerns @MyLifeIsMunitz
Amelia Warren is the founder and current president of the Business Talent Group.
#Warren2020 #FeelTheBern…
Amelia Warren founded Business Talent Group in 2007 along with Jody Greenstone Miller. It seems like it's a pr firm mixed with hiring "high level independent contractors" aka the gig economy, but for VPs and execs.…

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.)

Hi! I've been an organizer for twenty years. I've worked more than a dozen political campaigns and scores of union campaigns in that time. This app is NOT ORGANIZING. Let me explain. 1/
To be fair, there is a key part of this app that _is_ like organizing, and can make people uncomfortable: assessment. Organizing requires assessing where people stand and recording that data. Many people don't love that. 2/
People especially don't love it when they don't know it's happening. And that's what's deeply wrong with the app. It's ONLY about assessment, not organizing. Because organizing requires engagement, and this app doesn't. 3/

"A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy," wrote Bernie Sanders. "A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused."
Guess we know why women in #feelthebern were sexually harassed, it’s a Sanders fantasy. #DropTucker
cc: @mmfa
"A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by three men simultaneously,"
ummm this women begs to differ but maybe gang rape is a socialist thing? @SenSanders #TuckerCarlsonTonight
Sounds like Bernie loves him some toxic masculinity, dumb women are just trying to pull themselves together.

As Bernie Sanders gears up for a 2nd presidential run (yay #Bernie2020) Twitter is awash with folks who create a mess, point to mess, & say see, we can’t have messes.

We mean the troll army of horrible David Brock’s Shareblue Media.

Here’s a 19 thread tweet for #SOTU19 /1
Who’s David Brock?

Brock’s a self-described “witting cog in the Republican sleaze machine.”

He coined ‘Anita Hill is a little bit slutty, a little bit nutty.’

He wrote The Real Anita Hill, which he freely admits was not so much a book but a character assassination of lies. /2
Bernie Sanders accurately refers to David Brock as scum of the earth. /3

We ❤️ Bernie.…

Happy Monday! Let’s kick it off w/a Bernie Sanders accomplished a bunch list!

We see folks parroting old smears spread by that nasty Super Pac, saying the Bern achieved nada bc he’s an uncompromising ideologue who doesn’t know how to get things done./1…
Bernie’s in the midst of a distinguished career as a social justice activist & elected official. He’s been a mayor, member of Congress, and a senator.

Bernie’s life has been honed by decades of hard work as a public servant on behalf of poor & middle class Americans. /2
Bernie ran for president-without taking Wall Street $, corporate $, or having a Super Pac for unlimited dinero.

He’s had the integrity to live his life according to progressive values. He’s never shilled for big banks & corporations. That’s quite an accomplishment in DC./3

That’s exactly the point I’m making - we are making this about Trump-Russia when the larger issue is Putin-US and how he is able to manipulate all sides - remember, many social media posts took *both sides* of the political divide. You can’t argue they were solely helping Trump.
2. Note also the imagery and hashtags (#FeelTheBern) Wikileaks used in this tweet when they released the DNC emails - clearly aiming to also splinter the Democratic party’s base - knowing well that the voyeuristic, ratings-obsessed US media will gladly do the rest.
3. Could Wikileaks' meddling have backfired and instead fired up Clinton's base and propelled her to victory? Of course! But we choose to believe (without any evidence) that this hurt her campaign, helped Trump, and cost her the presidency.

Tbh my biggest issue with @SenSanders #MedicareForAll idea is that it isn't radical enough, which is probably the result of political considerations. If it were up to me, I'd go much further than the basic "insure everyone" idea. (THREAD)
A lot of people seem to be complaining about how catastrophically expensive and economically unsound the idea is. But the root cause of this problem is the private sector that will likely retain the rights to the technology and medicine the Govt will buy.
So there's actually a very simple idea for reducing the healthcare expenditure on the Govt's part: take a bat to the price-fixing system of patents on drugs and technology that the Big Pharma bastards have been getting away with for so long.

I changed my profile pic & the last line in my bio

Do not fear I have lost my focus or my desire to fight for the side of Right

But I'm going to shift tactics a bit because the Left has given us an opening

They have lost their ever-lovin' minds & are showing it
My bio was
Former Special Forces "so expect precision fire"
I did that to rile up PC speech bullies who say you can't use scary metaphors

I'm not caving a bit on the #FreeSpeech front
If anything I'm doubling down
But I'm going to change my tone a bit

From wicked to mocking
For the Right to prevail
We must draw our side together
By reconciling w/ folks who agree on issues but don't love #Trump
Reaching out to folks who used to be Democrats
Until their party went full #FeelTheBern

They don't want to be socialist America-haters
So join us
