Ya'at'eeh #BernieSanders2020 supporters. My name is Mark Charles. I am a dual citizen of the US and the Navajo Nation and am running as an #independent candidate for POTUS. My vision is to build a nation where We the People truly means #AllThePeople.
I had the opportunity to participate in two presidential forums with #BernieSanders including the Frank La Mere Native American Presidential Forum last August.

Ignorance prevails: @WhoopiGoldberg Grills Bernie Sanders on 'The View': You Don't Have a "Path to Victory" decider.com/2020/04/01/who…
He most certainly does have one, & ABC needs to muzzle both her & @SaraHaines for one of the most biased, unfair interviews I've ever witnessed.

#JoeBiden was for NAFTA just like Hillary Clinton. #BernieSanders was against it. THREAD:
Among other issues, Joe's vote and support of NAFTA is a liability in the rust belt come November.

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Becuase NAFTA encourages companies to outsource production to low-wage countries, it helped businesses at the expense of workers in the United States. It also did not provide enough protection against the exploitation of workers and the environment.

Just heard that Klobuchar also just dropped out of the race and will be talking to Biden later.

Sounds to me like Buttigieg and Klobuchar will both end up giving their delegates to Biden.

#PeteToBiden #BernieSanders
There you have it....Klobuchar to endorse Biden, so no doubt that she’ll also give him her delegates.

And here you have Buttigieg also endorsing Biden, so his delegates will also go to Biden to keep #BernieSanders2020 from the nomination.

1/9 In case @ewarren is wondering, here are the reasons I’ve decided to vote for @BernieSanders on Tuesday after supporting her campaign the last several months, both monetarily and through canvassing.
2/9 More than 200 tribal citizens wrote a letter with clear demands to @ewarren regarding her false claims of Cherokee heritage. She fulfilled 2/3 of those demands and wrote a 12-page letter mostly saying, “Hey, look how many people I’ve talked to about tribal issues though!”
3/9 They gave her a prime opportunity to disavow the white, racist myths that seek to erase native people in the U.S. She didn’t take it. It could’ve been an incredible teaching moment, and she pushed it aside.

It's a cold Sunday afternoon, and I wanna talk a bit about my insights into the Pharmaceutical industry.

Specifically why I believe that the the corrupting influence of the profit motive in medicine is a problem that #M4A can really start to address.

1/22
My first peek behind the curtain was about 18 years ago. My roommate got his first job out of college as a sales rep for a drug I'll call Shmaritin.

He spent the next several weeks studying sales materials, and then one day, the delivery truck arrived.

2/
Every square inch of our garage was loaded up with Shmaritin swag. Calendars, mug cozies, mouse pads, tissue boxes, hats, t-shirts, and pens (so many fucking pens).

"Bernie doesn't smile enough"

"He's too angry"

Alright @TheDemocrats how about we just gaze on a few gifs (everyone else, feel free to add your favorite gifs and memes). Better?

#NotMeUs #FeelTheBern #BernieSanders #BernieSanders2020 #BernieIsTheFrontRunner #BerninForYou
We all know how important it is to swag

Well four years later, he's still got it

@TheDemocrats, can't you see the swag levels?

#NotMeUs #FeelTheBern #BernieSanders #BernieSanders2020 #BernieIsTheFrontRunner #BerninForYou
A wink

He's happy and he knows it

See the joy just jumping off the gif, @TheDemocrats?

@JamesCarville moments ago on @MSNBC, where he predicts the "political suicide" of the #DemocraticParty, should #ComradeBernie be the nominee. It is INCONCEIVABLE that #BernieSanders2020 has NOT been vetted by #WashingtonPost, #NYTimes, #Politico, or the candidates in debate.

In the 2016 California Democratic Primary, 750,000 votes were DISQUALIFIED, mostly cast by No Party Preference (NPP) voters — 3 out of 4 of whom were #BernieSanders supporters. gregpalast.com/california-scr… #BernieSanders2020
They know that if NPP voters are allowed to vote in the California Democratic primary, #BernieSanders walks away with it. gregpalast.com/california-scr…
In 2016, California had over 1 million provisional ballots — equal to half of ALL provisional ballots cast in the United States. The vast majority of these provisional ballots were never counted, which is why we call them placebo ballots. gregpalast.com/bernie-won-cal…

Bernie Sanders introduced 7178 bills of which 882 were passed and 444 became laws. The next time someone says he wasn't productive, show them this graph. #Bernie2020 #receipts #BernieSanders2020

Today I am brave enough to share #myberniestory, it is also a Valentine’s Day story & the story of how I lost my mom.

9 years ago, the year my mom would pass away, my sis & I organized a massive Valentine operation to shower my mama in love during the last moments of her life.
She received hundreds of valentines from all over the country for weeks!! Our mailman rushed up our stairs everyday excited to hand her more love. She told me over & over how special each 1 made her feel. Compassion from people she didn’t even know kept her heart safe & hopeful.
My mom was 63 when she died & had a lot of love left to give. Our family was uninsured, lower middle class & regular visits to the Dr. were not in her budget. I didn’t realize it then, but I know now, like many mothers, she never prioritized herself so our family could have more.

I have a question for #BernieSanders2020 campaign chair @fshakir

As it relates to your text campaign and the people around the world that have helped you text Americans here in the U.S., why would you have those that you train, sign NDA agreements?

1/
I took the test without any training 2 days ago. I passed missing only 2 out of 16 questions. Then I was taken to the signup page where you asked for more information and that I needed to sign an NDA (screenshots available).

What’s with the NDA?
2/ Here’s one of those Q’s.
Then it takes me here:
What’s the point of an NDA if I’m just texting information that you give me?
What’s so confidential?

They fucking misreported my precinct. Bernie won 2 delegates in Polk County - Des Moines Precinct 14 in Merle Hay and we fought like hell for them. And @iowademocrats put one of our SDEs in Warren's column but correctly reported vote. #IowaCaucusDisaster #iowacaucus #iowa
Here's my tweet night of reporting same and another view of the board in Polk - Des Moines Precinct 14. @nytimes @iowademocrats @DNC FIX THIS. #IowaCaucusDisaster #Iowa #TomPerezResign #MayorCheat #Iowacaucus
Here is the raw misreporting on the failing @iowademocrats's website. That .27 should be a .52 SDE. Instead, they gave it to Warren. They're trying to steal this. #IowaCaucuses #iowa #IowaCaucusDisaster

I have a little story to share with you all about the importance of door knocking and reaching out to your friends and neighbors and encouraging them to vote for Bernie!

I went out door knocking all weekend in the town my precinct is in. I was happily surprised when... (1)
...the Dr.'s name I used to work for (Keith) popped up as the next door to knock. He wasn't home so I left the Bernie literature on his door and decided to reach out and text him. I told him I stopped by and left him a love note from Bernie 😍and that I hoped to see him... (2)
...on Monday at the caucus.

Caucus day comes and my Field Organizer comes to help out at my precinct as an observer since we're the largest in the county. (Don't be too impressed. The county is still so small and rural, there isn't one stoplight in the entire county! 😱) (3)

All Bernie needed to say:

"I believe you, so clearly I said something that led you to believe that, but I truly misspoke. From the bottom of my heart I'm sorry for that." Two sentences and he comes out looking better than before.

Let's look at some of Bernie's greatest hits:
Instead of apologizing for his campaign stealing Hillary's data, he tries to sue the DNC and make himself the victim.

theguardian.com/us-news/2015/d…
Instead of apologizing for not doing anything about Russia supporting his campaign, he... blames Hillary??🤔

Hey corporate Democrats stop asking us to unify with you while you are actively harming us and our families. You are either condoning or participating in racism, violence against minorities, imperialism, environmental destruction, killing through pollution, environmental racism
Extinction of species, child labor, withholding life sustaining medical care, educational racism, profiting from human slavery via private prison industry, failing to provide basic services such as clean water, committing gross human rights violations
You enable a system that poisons our children, tips families apart, tells black and brown Americans that they have no value, and throws their children away like trash. You are guilty. You are evil.I

Stealing California from #Bernie — again? gregpalast.com/stealing-calif… #BernieSanders #Bernie2020 #BernieSanders2020 #CAprimary
I saw what happened to #Bernie in 2016. People were improperly registered, not registered. There were three quarters of a million ballots which were cast provisionally or on the wrong ballot, which were thrown out. gregpalast.com/stealing-calif… #BernieSanders #Bernie2020
It was mostly #Bernie votes that were thrown out. We know that from the Roper Poll. #BernieSanders won California in June, 2016, if you counted all the votes… gregpalast.com/bernie-won-cal…

To all of you who are against Yang's version of UBI because as you say the "rich" get it or really anyone not at or below poverty level.

You are missing one of the main reasons it is being proposed in the first place.

Automation. Truck drivers make about 50k plus.
As well as other occupations that will be automated. Radiologists, retail workers, call center jobs, contract lawyers etc.

Everyone impacted will need extra resources coming in to prepare for their next steps.

It is not meant to live on or replace previous income but intended
to soften the landing. To give them some savings to retrain in a different career or start a business.

It is also intended to strengthen the economy of our dying small towns, to create jobs locally etc

means-testing will prevent all of this.

Going thru Dem presidential candidate housing platforms

Does anyone seek 2 severely regulate/ban big investors (private equity/foreign wealth) or small (flippers) that are manipulating the housing market?

Do they even provide lip-service?

Let’s see...

#ItsTheSpeculationStupid
Let’s start w/the currently considered gold standard: @BernieSanders #HomesForAll

Sum talk a/b Wall Street investors but is his proposed solution strong enuf?

Also, he’s unfortunately in the blanket upzoning camp so w/flipper tax isn’t that 1 step fwd but 2 steps back?
.#BernieSanders2020 calls for natl rent control & that will definitely curb some speculation, but it is without vacancy control. See Oakland, San Francisco, Berkeley & Santa Monica for the effects of strong rent control without vacancy control.

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.

Here's the scene at The Olde Walkerville Pharmacy in Windsor ahead of a visit by US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders #BernieSanders2020 #YQG @CTVWindsor
There's plenty of local support for the 'Caravan to Canada' Sanders is joining. The caravans see Americans come to Canada to buy life-saving insulin that can be 10x more expensive stateside #BernieSanders2020 #YQG @CTVWindsor
There's even a bit of music to entertain the crowd #BernieSanders2020 #YQG @CTVWindsor

#ElizabethWarren's bill reminds me of Romney's advice to youths in 4/2012, "Borrow money, if you have to, from your parents. Start a business... [Jimmy John Liautaud] borrowed $20K from his dad..."

The loan was c. 7/82 and was actually $25K.
$25K in 7/82 = $59K in 4/12
#Warren
In the first half of 2019, the nat'l average #rent increased by 2.6%.

Warren declined to be interviewed for this story. In May, at request of media, her campaign released a summary of her outside work. As a senatorial candidate, Warren released a shorter version, which omitted her work for Dow Chemical.

A recent #poll provides a quick way for us to be blocked when we engage in this argument.

🍩: "Bernard is the candidate of comfortable, white men."
🌹: "A higher pct. of women, PoC and low-income people than of men, whites and high-income people view him favorably."
🍩: "Of [1]
course! The latter demos tend to be more conservative than the former are."
🌹: "So, you withdraw your claim?"
🍩: "No. It refers to the Democratic primary electorate."
🌹: "The data show you're wrong in that case, too."
🍩: "By 'Democratic,' I mean [2]

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
