1 of 25 (sorry; not my fault)

In the beginning, I thought that maybe #ElizabethWarren was a good alternative to #BernieSanders.

But the more I learned about her the more I became disappointed and realized that that the only choice is #BernieSanders2020.
2 of 25

- #ElizabethWarren opposed gay marriage until 2010; Sanders has been a life-time supporter.

- She does not call out the fossil fuel industry disinformation campaign

- She does not support banning fracking (queue Republicans and fossil fuel industry cheering)
3 of 25

- #ElizabethWarren voted for Ben Carson to head HUD; later flipped after backlash from constituents.

- After Donna Brazil book came out, Warren immediately agreed that the 2016 primary was rigged by DNC. A few days later she flipped her position.

@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/?

#HologramTHREAD: DNC Bullshit

I've slept on this. I've thought about not saying it. I've thought about just keeping it to myself.

I can't.

The DNC made a special provision to keep Tom Steyer in the race and give him a shot at Debate #5.

Billionaire Tommy Boy, late to show up
to the Election of the Century, (1) bought his way into Debate #4 with dubious means, and now (2) had the DNC kowtow to him to keep him (and his money) around for a while longer.

As someone representing a true grassroots candidate, this is INFURIATING. Here's what it is:
Because Steyer has been pouring his $$billions$$ into Iowa and New Hampshire. Every so often, odd polls would show up with Steyer pulling 6% in an early state. There's no way that Steyer can get 3% nationally: He has zero grassroots. He runs $$millions$$ in online ads to get

#Hillary will forever be the woman scorned. She stuck it out for money, but there is no amount of money in the world that kills the pain of a serial philanderer. She knows all about THEM. Worse, they know all about her: including her failed attempts at the Presidency (at Bill’s
2/ behest), & jokes behind her back. #Hillary is one frustrated, angry, dismal failure at the one thing Bill makes look so simple. Politics. She is doomed to be the “forever angry woman, pointing that reproving finger,” at us as if we’re badly behaved children. She’s POINTIN’
3/ And there’s another angry pointin’ person: #BernieSanders He gives the impression we’re a bunch of dummies: when it was HIS wife who bankrupted a New England College, & he has never had a REAL JOB. But if you want shared blame & no successes ever again: feel the #Bern

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

Along with #BoycottABC, I think we should combat the right wing hate fuelled propaganda socialism scare campaign ad they aired.

Clearly, with ads like this, America is in desperate need of education on #DemocraticSocialism.
Instead of promoting the horrible ad I hate, I’m going to promote what I love... democratic socialism.

#BoycottABC
Every time an ad like that airs, it is our job to use social media for free advertising to dispel the propaganda machine.

1/15 This race reminds me of the rule in boxing, a split decision goes to the champ. That's how Biden has stayed on top, plus he's authentic both in screw ups and in sincere moments such as talking about the loss of his wife/kids. #ABCDemDebate #joebiden beta.washingtonpost.com/politics/biden…
2/ Elizabeth Warren's strength is her wonky, thoughtful "I'm not a typical Washington politician" and "I have a plan for that". Dodging the tax question makes her a typical Washington politician. #ewarren #ABCDemDebate #taxes theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
3/ Sanders seems incapable of modulating his speech beyond shouting and haranguing. It was interesting, however, that he finally was willing to abandon Venezuelan President Maduro. #berniesanders #venezuela #ABCDemDebate cbsnews.com/news/bernie-sa…

Universal Healthcare was not invented by Bernie Sanders. Bernie fans need to stop saying that. Here is Hillary proposing it in 1993, Bernie Sanders never fully supported it in 1993.

#BernieSanders #HillaryClinton

My main account was suspended because Berniebros attacked this same post. When I responded with harsh words they deleted their posts and reported me for hateful conduct.

I need my Hillary, Beto and Kamala gang back. RT & Help me find you all again. ♥️♥️♥️

Here come the Berniebros.
Mute them, Block them, Ignore them. They have no clue, just the whiny bunch.

I am more pissed off at this premise from the audience (a teacher!) than with #BernieSanders' response
"Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth."
washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
Of course the population has grown! But,
a. #sustainability in the context of #ClimateChange is NOT about sheer numbers of people
b. the growth rate has slowed down. A LOT!
Therefore, discussing #abortion is awful in this context
Take the important #abortion question (pro or anti) to some other context of the human condition. Don't thread that with population growth and sustainability
Do people even care about evidence anymore?

White people of all genders being violent is not new in this country, so the usage of “white supremacist” makes it seem like it’s something else rather than white people- white people-ing. They are behaving consistent with the power their whiteness confers.
I can become a trillionaire while my staff makes minimum wage without consequence and people will have this knowledge and still buy from my company #amazon
I can lie and say a black person whistled at me during Jim Crow as a consequence the black person is murdered and I can write a book about how I lied later in life as I’m still alive to tell it with no consequence #carolynbryant

@leftyaaron @BlueBoyBrown 1.
I don't have THE Answer about how to convince one's parents that Bernie is the Real Deal..because individuals are unique.
But I do have some facts handy and you can decide what matters most to the particular person..
I'm going to thread some now-
@leftyaaron @BlueBoyBrown 2. A whole lot of the Country seems to like #Bernie200 enough to put their hard-earned money into his campaign.

@leftyaaron @BlueBoyBrown 3. Here are some of #BernieSanders Achievements in Congress, a thread by @GunnelsWarren .

Don Lemon a political activist and bigot is actually moderating a fake news CNN debate? That’s not a debate but a meeting of radical activist.
What is racism and identity politics? The fact that blacks in South Bend, Indiana have rejected #PeteButtigieg and overall he has zero support from blacks yet the liberal media still push him as a viable candidate and somewhat dismiss blacks who are running. #racism
Crazy Bernie strikes again. #BernieSanders #Detriot #CNNDebate

At the risk of pissing off new followers, I'm going to share my stance on why I can't support ANY of the females running for the Democrat nominee in 2020 (even though I am female, and would love to be alive for the first female US President). 1/8
None of the female candidates have the proven history of fighting truth to power. Our country is in dire need of structural government change. We need a President with a proven history of fighting the powers that be. By 'powers that be', I'm including @TheDemocrats insiders 2/8
who have shown their cowardice by not starting an #ImpeachmentInquiry immediately after the Mueller Report was released. By 'powers that be', I'm including the media superstars (e.g. @Maddow) who have shown their lack of will to call a #Fascist when he presents himself 3/8

THREAD comparing 2 different Democratic candidates in 2015-16 v. 2019-20. It doesn't matter what you think of either candidate, whether you support or oppose one of them or both of them. 1/
It was around this time in 2015-the yr before the 2016 election-that we saw the introduction of the “#BernieSanders can't appeal to black voters” narrative; we were told his supporters are all white “Berniebros” /2
Countless articles, blogs & social media posts fixated on looking for nonwhite people at Bernie's rallies. I read 2 pieces by @JoanWalsh in @Salon in Aug of that yr. Walsh initiated this narrative & was the principal peddler of what is now an easily disproven cliché. /3

With Trump threatening to punish Mexico for the Honduran immigration crisis he created (geography was not his top subject), I headed to Mexico yesterday to pick up the prize for International Reporting from the Club de Periodistas de México (a prize I share with #JulianAssange).
The big story while I was in #Mexico was today’s planned march in Tijuana, called for by President @lopezobrador. He’s called for hundreds of thousands to march on the border to “defender nuestra soberanía”— defend Mexico’s sovereignty, its dignity.
There’s a feeling that Trump was simply trying to humiliate #Mexico, that it has nothing to do with migrants. Ironically, the President, reasonably referred to as the #BernieSanders of Mexico, has been exceptionally cooperative and respectful toward Trump. gregpalast.com/how-the-bernie…

No Party Preference voters face massive impediments in the upcoming primaries. If you register as a NPP voter and want to vote in the upcoming Democratic primaries, you can pretty much kiss your ballot goodbye. The chance that it will count is damn slim.
The Democratic Party establishment does not want #NPP voters to vote in the #primaries. And if you do vote, they don't want to count your ballot. So how do you get around this problem? It's easy: Register as a Democrat. via @Fiorella_im @theconvocouch
If you want to vote in the upcoming Democratic primary, and you've already registered as NPP, go online and you change your registration to Democrat. You can change back right afterwards. You can do whatever the heck you want. But protect your vote.

We've been told for a year by #BernieSanders supporters that Sanders is the most popular senator in America. It appears he's not even popular in his own neighborhood.
The looming question is: who gets Sanders' supporters when he is out of the race?
Amy Klobuchar spent her birthday in Iowa. But she had huge crowds.
Bernie spent his wedding anniversary in NH with a slew of empty seats.
"My wife kind of thinks I should be in Vermont but here I am."

Sen. Bernie Sanders attends campaign event in Concord, NH and announces its his 31st wedding anniversary.
