Watching #EdRendell tell #KeithBoykin what black people should think about #JoeBiden is EXACTLY why no one in #Philly listens to Rendell anymore. Boykin is being extremely polite and controlled--more than I would be--but he says that Dems MUST fight for black people.
@OutFrontCNN
Rendell just said that Biden has done more for civil rights and to combat racism than anyone else.
SERIOUSLY?
My parents, who were Civil Rights workers and co-founded a major civil rights program in the 1960s did more than Biden has ever done for Civil Rights.
@OutFrontCNN
Boykin notes black people are not a monolith & says there is a generational divide on Biden. So true. (Boykin is 21yrs younger than Rendell.) The Dem Party is much younger than the GOP in terms of demographics. Boykin says white men are only 29% of America, why cater to them.

The creepiest #JoeBiden find so far is this 1975 interview in which he boasts of his position against busing and rehabilitation of criminals. He says... documentcloud.org/documents/5805… 1/x
“I think I’ve made it possible for liberals to come out of the closet...If it isn’t yet a respectable liberal position, it is no longer a racist one....I think the Democratic Party could stand a liberal George Wallace..." 2/x
"Someone who’s not afraid to stand up and offend people, someone who wouldn’t pander, but would say what the American people know in their gut is right.” 3/x

This #JoeBiden/Cancer debate is triggering me, so I’m just going to talk about it. Pardon me in advance.
My husband, my partner of almost 20 years, was 41 when he died in December. Our sons are 14, 10, and 6.
He was misdiagnosed multiple times before we finally got the correct one in June 2017: Stage 4 lung cancer w/ a salivary gland profile. Rare.

@samstein VP Joe Biden's ability to negotiate with congressional Republicans helped the Obama administration pass legislation like 👇

#Biden #JoeBiden #TeamJoe
@samstein “Their willingness to say no to everything — the fact that since 2007, they have filibustered about 500 pieces of legislation that would help the middle class just gives you a sense of how opposed they are to any progress-" President Barack Obama, in 2014
msnbc.com/morning-joe/ob…
@samstein “History will look back and note that Republicans in Congress treated President Obama with unprecedented disrespect,” Reid said, arguing that soon after Obama was elected, the GOP set out to make him a one-term president and obstruct anything he did.

TWENTY EIGHT YEARS of #ClarenceThomas (mis)interpreting the Constitution to enforce an extremist right wing POV on the American legal system. If #JoeBiden had allowed witnesses for #AnitaHill to speak, instead of making a deal with the GOP, Thomas might never have been confirmed.
Let's not forget how #ClarenceThomas got on the Supreme Court.

Did #JoeBiden Forget He Was There for the #AnitaHill Testimony?

And the details of how Biden got to the Anita Hill moment is here in this brilliant long read by @rtraister.

Joe Biden Isn’t the Answer

#CreepyJoe has a way with the girls.
But it's not the right way.
Back off, Joe.
Buy a #TickleMeElmo doll and tell it it's as bright as it is good looking.
Maybe #CreepyVP #JoeBiden can get a real job as #TickleMeElmo.
Here he surprises #Elmo with a couple of inappropriate #TestTickles.

Notice that Biden is the target of personal attacks, the same as Hillary Clinton in #Election2016.
Here are the most popular hashtags associated with Bernie Sanders on Twitter.

Notice that Sanders is once again classified as a Socialist scare, and directed at replacing Biden as the choice of voters.

The @JoeBiden #HunterBiden Ukraine connection explained.
Hunter Biden married the wife of his deceased brother. Kathleen Biden just dukes for divorce, staring, he blew lol family income on drugs, hookers & gifts for prostitutes. @JoeBiden pagesix.com/2017/03/02/ex-…
“The other case raised at the January 2016 meeting, Telizhenko said, involved Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company under investigation in Ukraine for improper foreign transfers of money. At the time, Burisma allegedly was paying then-Vice President Joe Biden's son”

Quick reminder before #JoeBiden's rally tonight.

He was caught responding to the envelope he received at #McCain's funeral courtesy of patriots who took advantage of the situation to inform certain recipients of their impending date with a traitors justice.

#WWG1WGA #MAGA
Thoughts👇about those envelopes that went to five VIP families in attendance.

Biden / Bush / Obama / Clinton / Pence
*Note: I meant GHWB's funeral....not McCain's.

#BernieSanders draws sharp contrasts with #JoeBiden on voting records on trade, Iraq War, more.
Bet Sanders is glad he was in the House during #AnitaHill, though... cnn.com/2019/04/29/pol…
The one really irksome quote from Sanders in this interview--because he's right about pretty much everything he says here--is that he wants an "issue-oriented campaign" &"no personal attacks." Sanders personally attacked Hillary in 2016 & he has personally attacked Democrats now.
But these issues #Sanders raises do matter to millions of voters, particularly the more progressive Democrats and Independents. #Biden will have to address these issues if he ever decides to campaign anywhere where it's not just other older white men in the crowd like Pittsburgh.

Now that #JoeBiden is running I thought I’d share my Biden story. Because I have one.

Thread:

After college, my first job was for an anti-nuke project run by Alan Cranston, a retired 4-term senator from CA who’d been Democratic whip & a presidential primary candidate in ‘84.
Alan, as he insisted on being called, died suddenly on Dec 31, 2000. Though he’d been out of office since ‘92, he was a giant of California politics, and his funeral was a bit of an event. I and my colleague, Zack, worked full-time to help the family organize it.
We tracked which of his senate colleagues planned to attend. In the end, only Joe Biden and John Kerry came. Not Dianne Feinstein or Barbara Boxer. Just two friends who respected Alan for supporting vets while opposing the Vietnam War. Alan and Biden had come in together in ‘68.

Biden’s Presidential Bid Puts Spotlight on Spygate Scandal

Biden's announced presidential run has raised questions about what he knew about the spying by officials in the Obama administration on the Trump campaign. #JoeBiden

theepochtimes.com/bidens-preside…
“He was Vice President and presided over the biggest political scandal in history. High ranking Obama-Biden appointees used a phony Trump dossier … to fraudulently obtain a warrant from the FISA court to wiretap, phone-tap, and email-tap Trump and his associates," @jason_meister
"A very strong argument could be made that the White House at the very least was aware of what was going on, and perhaps complicit, and this is why a thorough investigation needs to be conducted," Marc Ruskin, Adjunct Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice @mhruskin

Jerome Mark's wrote, "On June 22 1982, Joe Biden was a Senator from Delaware and confronted then Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin during his Senate Foreign Relations committee testimony, threatening to cut off aid to Israel. Begin forcefully responded,....(1
#Biden #Israel
“Don’t threaten us with cutting off your aid. It will not work. I am not a Jew with trembling knees. I am a proud Jew with 3,700 years of civilized history. Nobody came to our aid when we were dying in the gas chambers and ovens. 2) #Begin #Jews #ProudPeople #Survivors
Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them. And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.” 3)

As a union steward, this alone is an absolute deal breaker for me. Yet, there's more. A lot more.

#Biden2020 is DOA. paydayreport.com/union-busting-…
As someone whose country was at the core of the creation of the neologism "Balkanization," which I btw hate, this is an absolute dealbreaker for me too.
As a woman, the patriarchal privilege oozing and dripping out of each and every pore of #JoeBiden is an absolute dealbreaker for me, as well. truthdig.com/articles/joe-b…

#BREAKING
And then there were a bazillion.
#JoeBiden is running. As he does every few decades. He's announcing next week AFTER everyone does the @CNN debate/town hall event, because how better to diminish everyone else's hard-earned press with your own?
theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
As @IsaacDovere notes: "[Biden’s] decided he isn’t too old, isn’t too out of sync with the current energy in the Democratic Party, and certainly wasn’t going to be chased out by the women who accused him of making them feel uncomfortable or demeaned because of he’d touched them."
Now that Biden is in, he'll have to actually present a platform. Joking about sexual harassment isn't one, nor is complaining #AnitaHill should just get over herself, nor is "I was Obama's VP!"
The question is, who's Biden's base? Not millennials, not Gen Xers.

It’s a HUGE chess game. Each piece has it’s part. For example, it LOOKS as if Trump is suddenly interested in slamming #Mexico with tariffs instead of building a wall. Think what these tariff will do to Mexico. $25.00 per car. Cars sold around the world. And one cannot exactly
2/ hide the cars one ships. If #Mexico doesn’t fall in line in the next week or so (yes, Trump said YEAR, but look at #NorthKorea ) he effectively watches Mexico go up in smoke. He already froze payments to #ElSalvador #Nicaragua & #Guatemala
3/ This is the same guy who finished off the guys OBAMA was supporting: #ISIS I don’t doubt he will get it all done. But keep in mind there is a lot of distraction going on. Just know the main guy never loses sight of the ball.

WOW, this looks another big, global corruption scandal to keep a close eye on.

It involves a medical service and product supplier, Fresenius Medical Care, who is based in Germany, and the bribery of MANY government officials all over the globe.

#ButNothingsHappening
Fresenius has agreed to pay $231 million to resolve investigations by the DOJ and SEC for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) involving bribery to get business in a slew of countries.
They entered into a non-prosecution agreement in exchange for paying fines AND continuing to COOPERATE in the DOJ's investigation, which means they will flip on their own, as @DawsonSField always makes note of in the cases of the big, corrupt banks and law firms.

With Russian #collusion ending..

What happens when Americans find they supported politicians who funded a multi billion USD neo-fascist takeover and US-planned regime change that has lead to a proxy war through Donbass since 2014?

“CRISIS! RUSSIAN AGGRESSION!”

I’m going to provide a thread on Dems who want to be President. I’m going to share a link to a site that shows their voting record. The proof is in the pudding- or the votes in this case. You decide who should get the nod. #ThursdayThoughts
In no particular order. Here we go. Why not start with our most recent entry into the Dem race.
