The Morning After

I'm just gonna throw together a very brief compilation of tweets I found on point this morning. #OnlyBernie is trending on twitter: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23OnlyBernie&src=trend_click

Why the hell is it called the Democratic Party anyway?

So Liz is acting all high and mighty on MSM this morning and very anti-democratic:

Now that Bloomberg's face has been torn off to reveal an evil cyborg, I guess Warren's going to have to suffice as the last remaining flavor to try to stop Bernie. MSM/the billionaire class is in between a rock and a hard place.

@Wally

And this was before the debate:

Nate Silver's delegate projections through Super Tuesday — show Sanders with 41%, followed by Bloomberg and Joe Biden with 18% each.

Bloomberg is now actually cajoling other Dems to drop out because Bernie "will soon be unstoppable."

Edit/add: I'm pretty sure I read that 51% or maybe 52% of all pledged delegates will be apportioned by March 3.

Silver is now projecting that come the convention, Bernie will have 1,573 pledged delegates.

See? We the people are powerful.

omits that most (all?) of Trump's golf outings include AF1 to FL or air transport to NJ for the weekend. Most of Obama's were at DC local courses, public or military and generally only one game per weekend. Then there's the Secret Service costs for their transport, lodging, and food for Trump's weekend golf jaunts.

Robin Williams routine. Probably because golf jokes (often including "god") are also my favorites. (Fits well with my loathing of business events/outings that included golf, requiring me to find something else to do for a few hours.)

@Daenerys A few years before he died his amazing intelligence, kindness, and big hairy chest suddenly hit me with a huge crush, probably the last of my life. His face was on my screen saver at work, to the amusement of my co-workers. Sad to know he had suffered so much.

@laurel when I 'discovered' him, although I had seen Fern Gully and Aladdin before that. I saw every movie he was in for a while. We watched What Dreams May Come in one of my high school classes; THAT was a weird movie! I was a mess for a few days after the news of his death; it really felt like losing a friend. The world hasn't been the same since. *sob*

It seems a lot of people aren’t willing to accept that. She sounds impressive when she has a safe target, like Bloomberg. But when she’s really pushed, it’s establishment all the way. If Bloomberg hadn’t been there last night, I really wonder how her debate performance would have rated.

I've seen so far. On point, lively, well-organized. (Over an hour but doesn't require looking at the screen. IOW, you can futz around the house or multimultitask at work while listening.)

citing MLK, Jr. in this instance is that he brings forward MLK Jr's core message. Most politicians use references to MLK, Jr. to pander to AA and "woke liberals" and lop off MLK,Jr. deep insights and radicalism.

off his disastrous first debate as nothing that another couple hundred million in ads can't fix. The hits should just keep coming:

Now up: Weinstein and Bloom were bffs for many years.

How soon before someone finds zero degrees of separation between Bloom and Epstein?

Will anyone ever ask Alex Acosta for the names of those Bush Administration folks that ordered him to find a way to cut a soft deal for Epstein? Those people need to answer a lot of questions. Unless they don't exist and Acosta did it all on his own; in which case it's time to begin stringing him up.

@Marie
why was CBS Market Watch covering an Epstein statement years after he was a registered sex offender?

New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, recently announced that he will personally fund the creation of four charter schools in New York City. The announcement was welcomed by New York financier and education philanthropist, Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a long-time supporter of Bloomberg, has financed numerous charter schools across the country including the Maya Angelou schools in Washington DC, the highly acclaimed Bard High School Early College in New York City and the Harlem Link Charter School.

@Wally and how Warren made it clear there's no way she'll give him her delegates for the convention.

Such an uphill battle he's facing.

@Marie Well done

Jeffrey Epstein also founded the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University in 2003 with a $30 million grant. He is a former member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, Rockefeller University, New York Academy of Science and sits on the board of the Mind, Brain and Behavior Committee at Harvard University.

I didn't even know that about the Trilateral Commission and CoFR.

@konondrum
describes everything none to date about Epstein. His Trilateral Commission and CoFR stints were publicly known before his 2005 bust for statutory rape. Epstein began tooting his own horn before there was anything to toot.

That said, we still know only a portion of the Epstein story. The biggie is where he got the money and what he and his associates (mostly unidentified) were up to. (I doubt the speculation about intel -- US and Israel. For those that trade on an aura of mystery, that's the easiest thing to fake.) My guesses are a matchmaker and pimp for the super-wealthy, money laundering for the same, and the billionaires' Zionist club program and money manager.

Bloom is in Epstein's black book discovered over a decade ago. And he has been photographed with Epstein's madame Maxwell. Then there are Bloom's ties to serial groper Weinstein. It's a big club and fortunately we ain't in it.

"It seems to me that the problem is that group party interests, in this case, are placed above the interests of the entire society and the interests of people,"

@snoopydawg
is evidence of more than being seen out and about with a certain class/coterie of people. Too many names in Epstein's black book had never met him and had nothing to do with him. Epstein collected names and contact numbers of anyone he hoped to snag for whatever he was up to.

Maxwell was well connected with elites in the UK and NYC. What she didn't have was money, or no where near enough money to hang out with those elites. My guess is that was where Epstein came him. She could introduce him to more of those elites and he could fund the lifestyle she needed. Her pimp/madam duties would have come later.

Short clip of some cable panel talking and David Axelrod and some other dem hack said that not giving the nomination to Bernie if he goes in with a plurality would be bad for the party. The moderator quickly cut them off implying that wasn't true.

Democrats are the only party actively trying to suppress their base.

Bloomberg is an evil cyborg--but did anyone really think it took a presidential campaign to reveal that? Yes, his misdeeds are now being publicized, but all of his racist, misogynistic oligopolistic elitism was public knowledge for a long time.

Liawatha is a total fraud, proving daily how fast a campaign can fail can have reached terminal velocity.

Bloomberg is the penultimate player to stop Bernie. I'm writing an essay today revealing who the ultimate recipient of Bloomie's largesse will be.

@Alligator Ed

. . . over the next couple of weeks going into Super Tuesday.

My guess is he's going to drop quite a bit. And then he's going to do quite poorly in South Carolina. Just because his history was "public" doesn't mean that most of the public was all that knowledgable about him. Give them time. Most just got their first dose of his infamy.

I don't think Her whose name should not be spoken will even want to be further tarnished by Bloomberg. She's already recently come out after the Drudge claim and said she doesn't want to be his VP. Of course, maybe she still wants to be top dog but it won't be done in open alliance with Bloomberg. And as far as Bloomberg stealing the nomination for himself goes after last night, nah. Let him spend all the money he wants. So much the better for the pockets of those who benefit from his bankroll. They'll probably take his money and vote against him.
