Nina Turner emphatically and heart-wrenchingly reacts to Biden's "gaffe:"

Tonight is the third debate to find a Democratic Party opponent to Republican President Donald Trump. It's being held in Houston, Texas.
Most political analysts agree that at this point in time only three candidates are in contention: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren.
Many lefties are now calling upon "progressives" to unite behind the candidacy of Bernie Sanders lest the vote is split between Bernie and Warren resulting in Lyin' Biden getting the nomination.
There's an excellent new essay by Jeremy Toback on Medium entitled "The Legitimization Machine: Elizabeth Warren."
He riffs off British Marxist David Harvey's contention that ‘The neoliberal project is alive but has lost its legitimacy'
The ten Dem candidates included by the DNC in the next presidential debate will participate on tonight's Climate Change Town Hall on CNN. They will be interviewed individually at different times spanning approximately seven hours. The schedule is included below by clicking "Read More" under the graphic.
Despite the unjust absence of Tulsi, this debate from Texas Southern University in Houston, TX should produce some fireworks.
Biden will be at center stage, nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, flanked by both Bernie and Warren.
Other candidates, who will no doubt be eager to take a pound of flesh off the three clear front runners, include Booker, Buttigieg, Castro, Harris, O'Rourke, Klobuchar, and Yang.
WARren, who not only voted twice for Trump's extremely bloated (and in too many ways unnecessary) military budgets but also voted to increase them, has a plan to green our US military juggernaut.
Missing in her beancounting planning, however, is any consideration of whether we really need the 800 military bases or more we wield around the world costing about $100 billion per year.
I dunno how I feel about this one. I've been voting Green in November for a long time. But I won't be this time around. Bernie or Bust for me, my last vote period if Bernie doesn't win the nomination. Perhaps folks here have an opinion.

You have to appreciate Kamala's staffers trying to speed up the end of the planet. With Biden's team leading the charge to not have a Climate change debate, this is an amazing show of party unity. Still amazed people keep leaving the Democratic Party.#GreenNewDeal https://t.co/XppbEBJ5JR

. . . is putting her safety at risk. The tsunami of irrational hatred has really gone too far at this point.
Fuck the Ukraine lobby operating behind the scenes and their shitty faux woke mysoginistic tactics. Seriously. Does Charlie Brown here serve a purpose or is he just there to tell any woman who has a different opinion from him that she's shit? This is harassment and Jack allows it https://t.co/rolcGHSHYC

Chutzpah can only be something very good or very bad. In this case, I think it's pretty, pretty good that DC and MSM gets shocked (Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable) when Bernie speaks truth to power on the issue of the billions of dollars of U.S. military aid to Israel:
This Chuck Todd clip pretty much sums it all up, methinks. It ain't Warren. And when push comes to shove, she'll play ball with Biden. Big Banks, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Infocontainment, Military Industrial Complex, Global Security State . . . And it will never cease to amaze me how some folks equate Bernie with Trump (which seems to be the rage now) or even with Hillary or Biden or Obama. Oh well, horseshoes.

I am very confused. I thought Tulsi was for Medicare for All. I've also been looking for her foreign policy stance re. Israel without much success. Can anybody elucidate as to what is going on?
In her most recent public statements on the issue, Tulsi Gabbard blatantly contradicts her previous position on Medicare for All.
