#Bernie2020 intends to spend $50.2T on #Socialist policies, constantly feeds #ADOS universal🐂💩, yet is deferential towards Native Americans and ensures redress for Native American Slavery 👇🏾(yes, he said slavery!)

#BerniesBack #BernieInQueens
Below (👇🏾) #Bernie2020 pledges to provide all the financing (i.e. cuttin' a check) needed to fulfill all Native American treaties. Must be nice to NOT be fed universality for lineage specific issues! 🤷🏾‍♂️

#BernieInQueens
Keep in mind Obama routinely spoke out against #Reparations2020 only to turn around and fulfill Native American treaties (i.e. Native American reparations). Bernie will do the same!

Watch full interview with ⁦@ninaturner⁩ & Rev Al Sharpton on @MSNBC. 👀

Nina stays on message like the undisputed #Bernie2020 champion she is:

* 26k people at #BerniesBack rally
* 3.3m donations
* 1.3m calls to the 5 early states
* 1 m donors

@ninaturner to questions re. Hillary vs Tulsi.

* More Bernie voters voted for HRC than hers did for Obama
* It’s like Red Scare 60s McCarthiesm
* RED BAIT attacks are NOT ok on Tulsi with *no proof*
* Looks like revenge for Tulsi supporting Bernie in 2016 & calling out the DNC
As I said before, the Hillary Clinton attack on Tulsi Gabbard is really a way to attack Bernie.

It’s a distraction from #BernieSquad & #BerniesBack.
& is being used as an attack on #Bernie2020
(For HRC losing 2016 😂)

Hillary needs to *GET OVER 2016 & MOVE ON!*
It’s ridiculous.

1/3 After the @BernieSanders #BernieInQueens rally, cspan had live callers saying who they thought was the strongest Dem candidate. Was practically all Bernie. Here’s ones that were powerful.

A senior citizen from SC: Bernie’s team looks and feels like America.

#Bernie2020
2/3 1st from Washington: Bernie is strongest looking at the number of donors, volunteers and crowd size.

2nd from Indiana: Bernie has most credibility. He looks even better post heart attack.

#Bernie2020 #BerniesBack
3/3 A senior citizen from California who has worked with the homeless: You could hear him tearing up after saying @BernieSanders was the strongest Dem candidate. Bernie is an honest caring person. ❤️

Why to support Bernie Sanders over Elizabeth Warren in the upcoming democratic primaries: a thread. #Bernie2020 #Warren2020
Bernie Sanders’ 2016 candidacy inspired a movement across the country for the working class, women of color and students that has been unmatched in my lifetime. He has challenged people to think outside of the democratic establishment and to consider true, structural change.
1. Bernie’s proposals consistently offer us the BEST opportunity at the most amount of change. We can see that in many ways, one being his proposal to cancel ALL STUDENT DEBT, not just some of it (which is what Warren has proposed).

Elizabeth Warren is another blue demagogue just like Barack Obama.

Demagogues only pretend to by populists to get elected.

Don't fall for it again.

#Bernie2020
In 2008, Obama promised to enact a tax credit of $500 for workers. It was only enacted for 2009 and 2010, but maxed out at $400, and was difficult to qualify for.
In 2008, Obama proposed to allow the tax cuts enacted under his predecessor to expire. After agreeing to a two-year extension of the Bush-era rates, Obama came out with a compromise to raise rates from 35$ to 36.5%.

What really is the Democratic Left?
Thread

Combating MSM, @DNC & the Right's misinformation campaign, propaganda & lies about where Left, Center & Right actually are politically w/ some fucking history & facts to protect our #Democracy from modern slavery #Neoliberalism.
French Revolution Nat. Assembly seating was origins of political Left & Right spectrum designations.

Left wanted reform, new constitution w/ Declaration of Rights of Man & of Citizen

Right wanted to continue Ancien Régime - monarchy & feudal nobility

2/
Examples:
1. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights.
2. These rights are liberty, property, safety and resistance against oppression.
5. The law has the right to forbid only actions harmful to society...

Proud that my candidate shows up when it matters.

This is why I trust Bernie.

Bernie Sanders has the most progressive, most intersectional environmental policy in the race. No contest.

Check out our commitment to frontline communities -- the disproportionately Black and Brown folks impacted by the climate crisis the most.

Also, check out the last episode of Hear The Bern with @NaomiAKlein and @xiuhtezcatl, on which they talk about why Bernie's approach to the GND is the winning approach.

@Superciliously @cmclymer If you're sincerely asking, I will sincerely answer, but will take a few tweets. I'll come back to this when I'm at my computer (easier to type out there than on my phone). ✌🙂
@Superciliously @cmclymer Ok, so let's go back before the 2016 elections. I don't have a date for this, but given that she's wearing the bob haircut she first became known for during the financial crisis, it's most likely sometime circa 2008-2011. Here she is, praising #Bernie2020's integrity. 1/?
@Superciliously @cmclymer Here she is in 2002 on Bill Moyers, talking about HRC's help (as FLOTUS) in having stopped a bill that Warren was sounding the alarm on. Yrs later, Senator Clinton voted in favor of that same bill that came back up again. Listen to her explanation... 2/?

Bernie is going to be live soon at Plymouth State University, and I need a BERNIE BOOST, so I'm going to be drinking more Kentucky Bourbon and tuning in.

"Power to the People," is playing now. Are you tuning in?

The first speaker is up.

She woke up in terrible pain, diagnosed with a kidney infection. Pain continued. Misdiagnosed. Had a kidney stone. Got $6000 bill. For kidney stone. On top of 1000s in student loans. "This was with good health insurance." Her mother lost her job.
Instead of a simple prescription being $12, it will cost her her entire paycheck. This is why she believes we need Bernie Sanders elected as the next POTUS. Healthcare should be a human right, not just a privilege. She introduces Bernie!

THREAD 👇🏾

Let's end this bullshit right here, right now about Tulsi and #MedicareForAll.

She is 100% pivoting away from #MedicareForAll. Let's stop this spin already how she is not. If this was Warren or Mayor Pete saying this, people wouldn't stand for it.
#Bernie2020
Bernie wrote the damn bill!

ONLY Bernie right now supports #MedicareForAll and just like others running who have cosponsored the House or the Senate bill, Tulsi is flip flopping.

This is the same 💩 Kamala did. Any talk of including private healthcare is NOT M4A!
#Bernie2020
For those of us who are healthcare activists and/or see #MedicareForAll as a litmus test, Tulsi's language isn't just disappointing, it's downright shocking.

I see her as an ally to Bernie but I can't support her as a candidate. In Bernie's administration? OK.

1/ Third #TweetAnalysis - Comparative Hashtag Analysis
Hashtags: #Yang2020 and #Bernie2020
I read 151 Bernie2020 tweets and 152 Yang2020 Tweets today, 27th September 2019, to discover what the #YangGang and #BernieBros tweet about.
2/ Method
-Searched hashtags one by one (latest, anyone, anywhere)
-Read tweets to identify themes
-Adjusted and added themes as needed
-1 point for each theme mentioned (tweets mostly contained 1 theme)
-Afterwards, organised themes into more general types
3/ Data
The most common theme for both Yang and Bernie supporters was "general positive" (non-specific advocacy).
Looking more widely, "positivity" was the largest type for Yang, whereas more than 50% of Bernie tweets fell into the "negativity" type.

Feeling nostalgic lately about all the coverage the #Bernie2020 campaign has received from the MSM this year. Their integrity and in depth reporting has been inspirational to watch as the year has unfolded🙃

Join me as I reflect on some of the greatest #BernieSlanders of 2019 📸
No better place to start than with the reputable Washington Post and their #1 fact checker Glenn Kessler slamming Bernie for his claim that 3 families own more than the bottom 1/2 of the US combined. To be fair, he spoke for the WRONG 1/2, as THEY are "not especially meaningful"
Luckily, Glen's supporters were there to back him up 🤣
Thanks Gary, Glen, and the Washington Post for staying strong in your support for Team #BernieSlanders

You have revealed a lot of truths this past year, in your own unique way...

I’m committed to supporting Bernie. That’s why I’m disappointed to witness attacks between some supporters of @BernieSanders and @ewarren. We can advance the movement by following their leads and embracing potential allies rather than attacking them. Thread. /1
@BernieSanders @ewarren We should respect the strategy demonstrated by both Bernie and Liz to stand together against centrists, instead of tearing out each other’s throats before the primary. They’ve consistently declined opportunities to attack each other in the debates. /2
@BernieSanders @ewarren There are legit critiques of Warren. I share them, while supporting her as someone following Bernie’s lead on domestic policy and reinforcing his vision & leadership. For instance, Liz stands well to Bernie’s right, especially on foreign policy. /3

Under Bernie’s workplace democracy act, Warren’s campaign would be subject to compulsory mediation for failure to reach a collective bargaining agreement.

There is only one campaign that has put its money where its mouth is WRT organized labor. #Bernie2020

So many people will never know what its like to be pain free or worry free because of the status of their health.
I wanna talk about why it means so much to me that @BernieSanders has fought so hard for me and you to have what we need to be healthy.
1/
Ive never had anyone truly fight for me for anything.
I know a lot of people that have health issues. From their teeth to arthritis to a heart condition.
They dont deserve to live like that simply because theyre poor. Theyre people
2/
When I found Bernie, healthcare didnt matter to me. None of the issues he was fighting for did. I had never voted and wasnt super interested in politics. Things stayed that way for a while. Young and having fun you know?
Then it happened

My name is John

I'm having difficulty
telling #MyBernieStory
= #MedicareForAll

I suffered a near fatal
head injury in 1999

I've tried several times
to begin this thread

I have severe memory issues
& I become easily confused

If you Follow Me
Please read this entire Thread!😎
I'm unable to tell my story chronologically!😳

My life has been a living nightmare
since the day I was born!

I'm still not certain how I survived the physical & emotional trauma I've suffered nearly every day of my 59 years on this planet & remained somewhat sane & kind!😎John
I nearly died in a car accident in 1999

I've talked about it on another thread, but I got confused & decided to start a new pinned #MyBernieStory Thread

FYI
This Thread isn't going to be be Chronological

I've tried & I'm unable to do it!

I'm just going to Time Jump instead!😎

Okay, here's #MyBernieStory:
I went to college because you HAD to have a degree to make it in the world. $80k later, I have to live with my Mom, because my $1,200 rent payment is going to my loans instead. I can't default because my Mom co-signed. I WILL NOT destroy her credit!(1
...Plus it's impossible to declare bancruptcy anyways. I've worked for a non-profit for ~8 years hoping to get some of my loans forgiven. Turns out 99% who try that fail. So, with interest rates at 14% and ALWAYS rising, I will NEVER pay them off. (2
And that's not for lack of trying. I work a full time job on weekdays, cater as a 2nd on weekends and housesit for all my coworkers and friends consistently for extra cash in my "spare time." I am using my grandparents old car (blessed) & would be completely HOSED without it. (3

WOW Denver, y’all showed up for @BernieSanders! Over 10,000 of your beautiful faces came to hear the senator remind us that the power is in OUR hands, and that this revolution belongs to all of us! #Bernie2020

Pics in the thread 🔥🔥🔥
Every face, every body, every soul - feeling the 🔥 of @BernieSanders’ message of hope and unity. Together we’re building a movement that will carry this nation, it’s people, and the people of the planet into a future that our forefathers only dreamed of. #NotMeUs
An ocean of people, an ocean of Dreams. I believe that we will win because the people have woken up, and they’re listing with eager ears to learn and eager hands to work. #Bernie2020 #NotMeUs #WeThePeople

Wow, @SenSanders 😲🤯you need to evaluate and further nuance your Kashmir position very carefully.
Here is a carefully researched thread.
@janeosanders @GunnelsWarren @ninaturner
And I'm saying it again #FireRo
Kashmir is not a single-sided issue...

At least know the area...

This is Day 2 of my mission to convince Bernie supporters of why an Andrew Yang presidency would be better for them and their families’ wellbeing. Yesterday, I spoke about financial security. Today, I will go at length about education [Thread]
Let’s start by acknowledging the extent of both candidates’ education plans. Bernie’s publicly known plans for education are to introduce universal pre-k, tax-payer funded tuition for public universities, cancelling all student debt, and throwing wads of cash at the k-12 system
Andrew also supports universal pre-K, but is ardently against free college. Instead, he opts to give everyone a Universal Basic Income, drastically lower the cost of college of those who want to go, cancel much of the student debt, and make structural change to the k-12 system

Let's see which retweet bots are super excited about the third Democratic presidential debate. #ThursdayThoughts

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@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.

I'm going to quote something I saw on Reddit about Yang's UBI & put it into a Twitter thread.

This way I can bookmark it and use @threadreaderapp to unroll it, not to mention make reference use of it.

So away we go!
#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NotMeUs
Here is the question posted on the Reddit forum "SandersForPresident".
#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NotMeUs
Answer --

Well first of all, Yang argued with Bernie. Bernie was just answering a question asked during an interview. First off let's talk about the pitfalls of Yang's vision for UBI and how that would impact us. Yang wants to implement UBI
