Tucker Carlson gives Bernie's rise decent coverage, along with

coverage of the Dem establishment pearl clutching and back stabbing. Worth watching. He also covers the Joe Rogan endorsement. And suggests that the DNC will attempt to install Bloomberg as the nominee.

On edit : Youtube pulled the first video. I was able to locate it again at this link:

Yes. It is sad that a Fox host is more objective than MSDNC and CNN, but here we are.

It's shameful that we must turn to Fox News and Russia Today in order to receive relatively unbiased news coverage (taking opinion pieces with a grain of salt, of course) of happenings in the United States. The MSM are so corrupt and biased that I find it difficult to believe anything at all they purvey.

"The only possible good outcome for most Americans is a Sanders win. No other path leads anywhere decent." -- Ian Welsh

@edg Jesse Ventura,Pulitzer Prize winner Chris Hedges, 'America's Lawyer' Mike Papatonio, political commentary comedians like Lee Camp,and the anti-war show 'Watching the Hawks'(Jesse Ventura' son Tyrel, and Oliver Stone's son Sean Stone are two of the three hosts) are just a few of the excellent shows.

People may not recognize most of the names of the opinion piece writers, but people like former weapons inspector Scott Ritter, economist Max Keiser, cultural philosopher Slavov Zizek,UK's George Galloway and Sharmine Narwani, a commentator and analyst of Middle East geopolitics and former senior associate at St. Antony's College, Oxford University with a master’s degree in International Relations from Columbia University, are recognized world wide.

RT has also consistently covered the Julian Assange story, the Yellow Vests in France (some now in London protesting Assange's imprisonment in K's GITMO) and the Palestinian cause.

Prime example is an actual recognized expert on Russian affairs, Stephen Cohen's story today.

‘Nobody ever gets points for saying anything good about Russia’: Stephen Cohen says, as Rep. Schiff spreads ignorance about Putin

"Cohen said that “politically it's advantageous to a lot of people to bash Russia,” and even some of the “progressive” Democratic Party candidates in the 2020 presidential race employ rhetoric, which is hostile toward Moscow.

It has become an American way of life to blame Russia when things go wrong. Of course, sometimes Russia is to blame, but not all the time. And yet that's become part of our discourse. (bold in original)
Speaking on the Senate floor, Schiff accused Moscow of trying to undermine the faith in democracy and government institutions around the globe.

Cohen argued that the congressman misunderstands what Russian President Vladimir Putin actually “sees as his own historical mission,” and it is almost the opposite of what Schiff attributes to him.

According to the researcher, Putin's chief ambition is “to rebuild Russia from the disaster into which it fell in the 1990s” after the collapse of the Soviet Union. (my emphasis)

The last thing Putin wants is instability. He's trying to build economy at home and economic relations with countries abroad because he sees that as a way to modernize Russia.(bold in original)

The Russia researcher said that Moscow is currently focused on ties with China, but Putin would like to have good trade relations with Europe and the US as well.

“The notion that he wants to foster discord in the very countries, with which he wants what he calls ‘modernizing trade relations’ is just ignorance on the part of Adam Schiff. Because Schiff runs his mouth a lot about Russia, we get to hear the kind of ignorance… that dominates a large segment of policy-makers in Washington.” (all emphasis mine)

@aliasalias accessible at Grayzone. He covered a lot of the same ground, but the interview is most of an hour long and is more comprehensive. Mate has been doing some great coverage on Russiagate, etc. He hasn't drunk the MSM Coolaid and he comes at this area from the left, whereas Carlson is basically a right winger with moments of lucidity.

Well, go figure. It seems MSNBC and CNN have been a little fairer to Bernie lately, but they are loathe to report anything negative about Biden.

And there's another clip going around now of Tucker going apeshit about how a Bernie presidency will wreck the US economy.

I'm not turning on any MSM until the day of the Iowa caucus and then only to watch for cheating and to see if Warren is having her captains steer her voters to Biden at caucus sites where she polls less than 15%. It's going to be a circus because it's sure appears that only Bernie and Biden will top 15% overall.

and said that she was spreading conspiracy theories only. And yet they say that the GOP is refusing to listen to the facts. Isn't the reason for a trial to get out all the evidence and then make up your mind. No matter how silly it looks they think it's gospel and Trump is guilty and should just resign. Or be removed.

People were concerned about Hunter being appointed to Burisma's board back when it happened and numerous websites wrote about it. Also they wrote about how the Ukraine was worried how Trump would treat them after they found out they tried to help Hillary get elected. This is what Schiff and others are saying are CT and have been debunked and is just Russian propaganda. Funny that it wasn't Russia writing about them back them.

Good video.

I read on Zero Hedges that the Bolton book excerpt was a canary trial. The book went to the NSC for review by Vindland's brother and that he was the one who leaked it even though the information was false. Interesting theory. Thoughts?

>Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said as he watched "Bondi and the other Trump lawyers spend most of the day savaging the Bidens (as expected)... it become crystal clear to me: Trump is trying to use the trial to do what Ukraine wouldn't—destroy his political rivals."

So telling the truth about the corruption in Ukraine is just republican talking points? Never mind all of the evidence that showed many others in the government and the country were concerned about the optics. This is what I mean by people already having their minds made up.

We saw direct evidence of Biden asking for a quid pro quo from Ukraine to fire the prosecutor or they would not get the $1 billion. Gun to the head proof of QpQ, but yeah it's all good.

Trump then Bernie, so they could figure that Dems would help the GOP defeat Bernie were he to have the nomination. Bernie can beat the GOP, but can he beat both wings of the corporate party? And this is coming from me, a Dem-exiting Bernie-or-buster. I can feel TPTB gathering up their trillions of dollars to throw against Bernie and us. Can mere humans defeat such a system of money and power?

. . . is learning to live with it. I prefer not to opt for that route. At least I think it's important to go down swinging if that's our fate. But I recall that Eli Manning beat the Patriots not once but twice back in their heyday (and it seems like their heyday has come and is now gone). Bottom line is that I don't think a chance like this, given the critical mass that has mobilized with Bernie, will come again in our lifetimes. And if we don't pull off the miracle now, good night nurse given our increasing inability to deal with climate catastrophe. So it goes.

our best hope to wrest power from people whose wealth has insulated them from the consequences of their decisions and actions. They don’t realize how far their lives are removed from most Americans which prevents true compassion and understanding.

Right now I have a mailer from the Sanders campaign on my lap. I have two campaign stickers in the windows of my car. I won’t give up, but I can’t help question the motives of some well-known right wingers.

Perez appoints anti Bernie Pro Hillary and Obama folks to be Super Delegates

The SDs do not have to vote for the person who wins the most votes. And apparently Bernie agreed with allowing them to still be in effect, but just not during the first vote. So if no one gets 51% OF the votes during the first round the SDs can overrule the will of the voters.

But yeah let's keep talking about how Russia Russia Russia is going to interfere in the 2020 election. You own this Bernie.

If Bloomberg fails to get 15% of the vote (I'd wager that failure is a probability in every state aside from maybe NYS), it's going to be damn difficult to engineer his nomination.

@Cassiodorus

Donald Trump has proposed a two-state solution for Israel-Palestine which would see the Palestinian capital located in east Jerusalem, in a move the US president called a “big step towards peace.”

Trump said that Israel had agreed to negotiate on the basis of a conceptual and detailed proposed map for the first time. If Israel agrees to the proposed map, the US will recognize it, he said.

The plan will “more than double the Palestinian territory” and “no Israelis or Palestinians will be uprooted.” The US will also “proudly” open an embassy in the new Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem, Trump said.

Trump boasted that he has done “a lot” for Israel since taking office. It’s “only reasonable that I have to do a lot for the Palestinians” too or it “wouldn’t be fair," he added.

Ugh I hate censoring myself, but I am.

Netanyahu said previous attempts to solve the crisis "did not strike the right balance" between dealing with Israel's fears for its security and Palestinians' desire for self-determination

Hey, Hey, Bibi, how many Palestinians did your kill today? Hey, Hey..."

@Dr. John Carpenter

The former secretary of state was asked during an interview with Variety if she ever thought “I could beat Donald Trump if I were running.”

(umm you lost last time you twit so why do you think anything would be different?)

“Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome,” she told the magazine in an interview published online Monday.

“And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee.”

Don't forget that Russia is still waiting in the wings to derail your candicy just like they did last time. Funny though how they didn't feel that you were a threat in 2008 huh?

In the Variety interview, Clinton also responded to the criticism she received when a clip from the documentary showed her saying she wouldn’t endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders if he wins the Democratic nomination this year.

“I think we did that interview about a year and a half ago. I wasn’t thinking about the election by any means. I’ve said I’m going to support the nominee,” she said of Sanders, who ran against her during the 2016 Democratic primary.

“But I do think it’s important to look at somebody’s record and look at what they’ve gotten done and see whether you agree with that or not. I think that’s what every voter paying attention should do,” Clinton added.

I don't agree with you here because it's all made up in your mind. Bernie worked much harder for you than you did for Obama and it's just sour grapes that you can't see that. Do us a favor... get a box of wine and go walking in the woods until the election is over. And stay out of the DNC. Or do you still own them and that's why they put so many of your sycophants as super dees? Huh?
