Bernie still can't win

These are the head-to-head Bernie v. Trump polls from realclearpolitics since 2017.

Oh hell.
Just look at that.
Trump has led in 5 of the last 69 polls!
Bernie doesn't stand a chance.
And that's before someone has "vetted" Bernie. Because, you know, no one has bothered to look into his past yet (eyes rolling).
Ouch! I think I sprained my eyes.

And let's not overlook the rest of the primaries. Check out the sudden change in fortunes between Biden and Bernie.

Mayor Pete is polling in 5th place in Nevada and South Carolina.
I don't see him being viable after two fifth place finishes.

Then comes the all-important California primary...

...and Texas.

If Bernie wins those two then it's all over but the crying.

Was in a conversation today with someone who is going bloomers because:
"Hey. He's got lots of money to run ads against trump."
I just laughed and walked away.
She was so pissed.

Regardless of the path in life I chose, I realize it's always forward, never straight.

If the democrats and the DNC don't screw things up he will officially be #46.

If the election is stolen from Bernie by the superdelegates.

This is likely to happen.

Again the democrats think that they can just change how elections have been done forever just because it's Bernie this time.. and that's just what they are doing now. Fudging the numbers just enough to make sure Bernie doesn't walk away with it.

Will we see people asking how Warren or Pete have a path to win like we saw from Her supporters last time?

One thing though. We have been talking about a contested convention since Warren threw her hat in the ring all those long months ago. Then democrats went out and found more and more people to get in their clown car. Every time someone climbed out of it someone new got in. Now we have Bloomberg buying democrats a limo and he's buying people to not kick him off the island.

America is a pathetic nation; a fascist state fueled by the greed, malice, and stupidity of her own people.

@snoopydawg Yes. Honesty in politics! Choke. The Dems are so goddam stupid that they don't even know their overt arrogance and pure folly are turning off a massive number of American people? Bernie is riding that train. When that train [the Dem Partei apparatus] will go off the rails while rolling--it won't matter whether the train crashes to the right or to the left. There will at the end only be mangled machinery and wreckage.

Except pharmaceutically.

And on that note, I really want to know what it feels like inside one's brain — to look at a long list of simple data and write conclusions that are factual opposites. Does it feel good? Or do they feel nothing? Are they whacked out on a drug that I don't currently have? What kind of drug?

When political professionals lie while they are talking, are they aware that they are lying?

That is the question I am most obsessed with. Some of these people have media jobs. Is it possible that media figures may not actually 'know' when they are lying? Inside their brains there appears to be no evidence that they have ever told a lie. Who programmed them? Or is it occupational brain damage?

Did Adam Schiff know he was lying? His lies are crazy-blatant and on-the-record. Does he think about this or is part of his brain partitioned and inaccessible to him? I notice that everyone lies in front of congress, all of the time. You can say any bullshit thing you want to in front of them. Congress is arguably the most compromised and extorted group of humans in the United States. I mean, no one said one word when Imran Awan and his Pakistani IT group left DC with decades of the Democrats deepest, darkest secrets and classified documents. The Democrats immediately had to hire Clinton's lawyers and an Obamabot Judge to stop the investigation and get their case settled. Some suspect it was the most massive intelligence theft in the history of Congress. Some of the Democrats were still writing big monthly checks to them a year after they quit. They are probably still writing checks. But the media had no curiosity about any of this and not one word was written.

On the other hand, it didn't seem like Obama was lying, early on. His opponents were all lying and smearing him. Maybe they were providing controlled opposition cover. However, Obama did accept a Peace Prize at the same time that he was lying in his televised West Point speech about the for-profit Afghan Surge. Looking back, I now realize that most of DC, including the taxi drivers, knew he was spewing lies in prime time. Democrats were bullied by their Democratic Betters not to say a word about it. And the media turned pro-war.

The next thing you know, the Neocons and their mercenary forces were unleashed upon the world, creating 40 million refugees every year. For the first time, lying to the American people through propaganda delivered during the news was officially legalized. That's when they figured out that if you betray the People so horribly that it is literally unthinkable — the People will not think about it as long as the media never mentions it. It was a game changer. When the US found itself awash in drug addiction, not one word was said about the massive opium industry the US built in Afghanistan, and the FedEx supply chain that delivers heroin globally. It is too big to fail now. Too profitable. That's why the US can never leave Afghanistan. The Taliban will shut them down again if they do. This is something they can never ever tell the American People. Their kids died for this. More lies of omission. The only pain killers that get busted anymore are the synthetics that are competing with the US dope monopoly.

Is this why democracies are becoming so unpopular now?

@Pluto's Republic Also, I agree entirely with your analysis. You described in words thoughts which I have been floating amorphously in my cranium what I have been thinking. In my opinion (which, sir, is not humble but befitting of an alligator) I for one would appreciate more such in depth insights into Real Politik as we swamp critters say. In other words, write some more essays. If you have recently and I've missed them (because of sloth--eating them), then please alert me and I shall read further.

Additionally, for your knowledge, this sage opinion shall be delivered to you, opinion only but tempered by the fact that (please excuse the following hubris. I mean to offend none at c99--never have intended such.)

That entire question is more complex to describe. The answer is--Yes, it is possible to prove (within reasonable laboratory certainty parameters), including electrophysiological devices, which can within whatever statisticians considers is near certainty with excellent predictive accuracy. We are talking about reliably reproduced or calculated statical accuracies of 95% True false positive results and 95% True false negative results. This is known as selectivity and sensitivity. Your choice of nomenclature may differ but that's how these human neuropsycholocial experiments are run. Yours truly has permed in vivo electrophysiolgic monitoring of the posterior frontal to posterior parietal cortex. What I did was primitive by today's standards. I won't detail the earlier technical inadequacies in both stimulatory and monitoring/sensing technologies and materials. I am no expert in that stuff.

Now that we know that suitable neuropsychological experiments can be performed with statistical degrees of accuracy, reliably, non-invasively, digitally, wirelessly the horizons for the expansion of neuropsychiatric knowledge seems almost limitless. Projects need to be designed in order to achieve such precise monitoring of human reactivity [like rats running a maze].

What?

That's ALREADY BEEN DONE

No! For real! Yeah, for real--I got pictures. It's called MK-ultra.

@Alligator Ed

I think I am haunted by the question because I can effortlessly detect carefully-manufactured propaganda details and eye their viral epidemic-like propagation by the media — if I care to look.

When political professionals lie while they are talking, are they aware that they are lying?

I don't care to analyze the lies themselves — but that easy detection gives me time to observe the liar and try to see what's behind their eyes. When the media monopoly spokespeople casually drop the word "alleged" from their script reporting on a nothing-burger event, for example, that's a propaganda detail. Pivotal lies that are seamlessly embedded in the background narrative often pass unnoticed and infect bystanders. I notice that the liar's eyes are typically empty. I have yet to see situational awareness or self-awareness in them. The most striking example of a wireless bot that I've seen was the blatant, in-your-face, background narrative lying dispensed by Bishop Mitt Romney during the 2012 Presidential campaign. His eyes were an abyss.

In any event, I think DARPA has franchised any and all research into these areas in the US. The white-hot race among the superpowers in artificial intelligence — along with the race in quantum computing (required to evolve the mind-control strategies in real time) has profoundly transformed our national priorities.

If these operatives don't know they are lying — that's going to be a real problem for humanity. For example, the brain-eating Russia Hoax virus — pushed by the hollow-eyed media liars — points to symptoms of brain damage at the molecular level. We may be dealing with a heritable epigenetic disaster.
