#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...…
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.

1) En train de regarder le meeting de #Trump face aux adhérents de la #NRA, le lobby pro-#armes. Fascinant de le voir dérouler, tout en excès,son programme: immigration illégale zéro, repeuplement des cours fédérales de justice pour remplacer les juges "partisans"contre lui...
2)... et là, #breaking, #Trump annonce qu'il va faire 1 surprise aux détenteurs d'armes pour protéger leur dit qu'il ne ratifiera jamais le traité de l'ONU sur le commerce des #armes signé par #Obama. Il retire sa signature. Acclamation nourrie de la foule de la #NRA.
3) #Trump signe en direct théâtralement le retrait du traité onusien sur le commerce des #armes, sous les applaudissements de la #NRA et il envoie le stylo dans la foule. Quel spectacle invraisemblable... et beau symbole de la présidence US de Trump.

Lisez et relisez cette phrase (et le passage souligné en rouge) sur la campagne #Trump et la #Russie du rapport #Mueller, elle revient 2 fois dans les 15 premières pages. De la notion de "collusion" qui est d'ailleurs aussi beaucoup discutée dans les 1ères pages. #teasing
2) Après le résumé du volume 1 sur 7 pages, dont le texte précédent page 5 est extrait, le rapport #Muller narre d'abord ses découvertes sur l'opération de déstabilisation de l'élection US 2016 par l'IRA de Prigozhin, proche de #Poutine, sur les réseaux sociaux.
3) Cette partie très caviardée sur l'ingérence de l'IRA russe sur les réseaux sociaux conclut clairement: l'IRA de Prigozhin viola les lois US contre l'influence étrangère des campagnes mais les campagnes locales de #Trump contactées par l'IRA ignoraient l'origine russe (page 35)

So per @NBCNews, these are the latest fundraising rankings.
These are significant because #Warren is after #Sanders and #Harris in the polls where they rank 1st and 2nd (not counting Biden since he's not in) but her fundraising is below #Booker.
As these money rankings stay, Warren is in trouble for the debates like Castro and Gillibrand are because of the rules on how fundraising numbers = viability. Not making the debates would be terrible since #Warren & #Gillibrand are the most progressive & #Castro the only Latinx.
Also, these daily totals are averaged, but they aren't representative as a metric because all these candidates entered at different times & Sanders never stopped fundraising from 2016.
The question is, how much is no big donors hurting #Harris & #Warren?

This awed tone of MSM coverage of #Sanders is so gendered.

Harris and Klobuchar are both daughters of single mothers who had to raise their kids alone after their husbands left the families.
Warren also grew up in a working class family in Oklahoma.

Money was a stress for these women's families as well. Klobuchar has spoken movingly of her family's estrangement from her father, an alcoholic.
But the coverage of these women not only hasn't reflected this awe of their families' struggles, but has been harshly critical.

No one has situated Klobuchar's perfectionism within the well-documented construct of being the child of an alcoholic fighting chaos.

Harris and Klobuchar both had to work harder than their male counterparts to get on their college & career paths, due to their backgrounds.

La porte-parole de #Trump, #Sanders, montre ici, à son corps défendant face à Chris Wallace, pourquoi tant d'acteurs politiques ou sociaux veulent museler les journalistes. Ceux-ci rapportent des faits contrariant leurs récits idéologiques qu'ils entendent muer en réalité. RT+1
2) Car s'il faut trouver 1 sens au compte Twitter de #Trump, instrument d'abord de conquête puis d'exercice du pouvoir, ce n'est pas- seulement- en déversoir instinctif de haine contre la #presse et les médias indépendants mais comme leur possible substitut à terme.
3) #Trump a toujours été d'abord 1 fabricant et marchand de récits, centrés sur sa personne, dans les affaires puis en politique. Ses récits mirifiques sont marqués par l'exagération, l'invention pour vendre et seule 1 presse indépendante a pu rendre Trump "comptable" des faits

Democrats and Republicans, Independents and Greens should be fully supporting Tim right now and calling out the corruption loudly if he is cheated yet again.
Canova is the singular progressive to finally fight the corrupt @DNC by calling out the voting interference for what it is & exiting the DNC system entirely. His **actions** are what strongly differentiate him from progressives like #Sanders & @Ocasio2018 who bow to the DNC.
Sick of me talking about Tim Canova? Sorry, almost no other journalists are giving his campaign coverage, and it is the single most important 2018 race - regardless of your political affiliation. (Which is why it is blacklisted from MSM discussion while other races are reported)

Opinion: The Death Of Hope And Why It Is Crucial For An American Awakening…
"The death of hope can push us into a very dark place, but that darkness is the birth canal of real change."
"For some people, hope came in the form of a red hat, with stenciled letters embracing their foreheads promising to Make America Great Again. My hopes were pinned instead on #BernieSanders."

1/x @NRA and stuff.... Piece of shit advocacy group, BUT, the blasts against them are fukin idiotic, peoplealways grab for the easy moral authority, #Rubio shud resign cos he has no intellectual ability to take their miney and still possess any civic virtu
2/x @nra but now, having said that, can we dig deeper beyond the NRA, the american left has NO Democratic Party opposition to war. the fake Wakanda domiciled liberals and progressives have been manipulated to allies of the military-industrial-complex
3/x #nra Democrats who wore kente cloth and/or boycotted the State of the Union cannot find their voices to object to America’s bombing of Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, or Somalia. hmmm
