Battle Born Bernie Wins Again

BERNIE Sanders has reportedly won the Nevada caucuses according to precinct votes tallied so far. The victory cements the 78 year-old communist’s status as the bona fide frontrunner in the Democratic Party’s nomination contest. Almost on a weekly basis, former favourites Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren fade from the picture like Marty McFly’s polaroids in Back To The Future. Like Marty’s antagonist, Biff Tannen, they surely hate manure but just crashed into a cart-load in the Battle Born State. Polls show that California is now Sanders’ for the taking. Nonsense reports emanating from American intelligence trolls that Russian intelligence trolls are doing something to assist the Vermonter’s campaign only raise his status. Moscow/Langley is smart enough not to bother spooking the donkeys by dispatching bots for Biden or Buttigieg.

A big question worth asking now is whether the rise of Sanders meaningfully bolsters the white knight strategy of Michael Bloomberg or whether that too will fade away. Knights can only save people who want to be saved. The much discussed possibility of the Democrat establishment rigging the contest is also looking doubtful at this stage. If the Sanders surge is consolidated on Super Tuesday (3 March) when 14 states cast nomination ballots, it will be impossibile. The irony here is that the Russia Hoax – so crazily pushed by Democrats for the entirety of Donald Trump’s first term – means there is no oomph left in touting such linkages and past sympathies. Ten years ago, “Russia backs Bernie” would have taken Sanders out. Now? Nobody really cares.

  1. Or perhaps it’s simply that nobody truly believes anything the media says anymore, whether Democrat or Republican.

  2. Cynic of Ayr

    Bemused…
    Valid point.
    However, there is still the significant proportion of the population that have gone stark raving mad!
    Incapable of rational thought.
    I’ve said a couple of times, these people are going to have to experience what Sanders has to offer. Only then will some of them see. The others? There is no hope at all. Their situation or chance of rescue is non- existent.

  3. …have gone stark raving mad!

    That’s true, but it’s a insanity that appears to affect the Left in general; it’s their natural state of existence.

    High Cheeks votes will all go the crazy Bernie when she leaves the race in a the next few weeks. However there is an opening for someone else because Crazy Bernie’s support added with High Cheeks totals about 43% in the polls.

    The fractured “moderate” candidates vote is over 50%. However nearly all of them need to drop out of the race including sleepy joe.

  5. Coronavirus, China, supply chains…severe economic downturn. Who they gonna trust?

  6. Tel

    Bernie is a tiny, tiny bit anti-war.

    The rest is free stuff of course … advance auction on stolen goods.

  7. 8th Dan

    Too early to call Bernie a “bona-fide front runner”. These early caucuses don’t really matter. Super Tuesday is 3 March when Biden and Warren can both be expected to surge and challenge for true front runner status.

  8. Infidel Tiger

    I’d vote for Sanders. He’s authentic.

    The system is broken and must be smashed. He’s the man to do it.

  9. BoyfromTottenham

    Just wait to see who gets all of Bloomberg’s $$$ when he pulls out of the race. Then you will know who the 2020 Democrat contender really is.

    A big question worth asking now is whether the rise of Sanders meaningfully bolsters the white knight strategy of Michael Bloomberg or whether that too will fade away. Knights can only save people who want to be saved.

    The last debate, and all Democrat debates so far, shows that there is nothing to save in that party and even if there were true Michael Bloomberg is not the man to do it. He is an ossified snob and autocrat, his reaction at the debate showed that nobody has ever said no to him. Even in the Democrat party you need someone who can do some horse trading which Napoleon Bloomberg is not capable of doing.

  11. It’s kind of fun to watch/read about the Democrat nomination circus. Any sane person has to think that voting for any of them is sheer madness. All that one can say is that at least Bernie is the consistent one and you know what he’ll deliver.

    A bigger question is what would have happened to Sanders if Bloomberg had actually been on the Nevada Primary Ballot. He wasn’t, thus nobody could vote for him.

    People are tending to forget that.

    That’s exactly what the Venezuelans said about Hugo Chavez.
    The difference between the USA and Venezuela is the US Constitution and the corrupt Capitol Hill. Neither will allow a President Bernie to implement his full agenda.

  14. Scott Osmond

    Just thinking out loud here but could the moderates *stop laughing up the back* be allowing Bernie a clear run so after Trump crushes him in November they can tell the radicals to sit down and shut the fuck up in 2024? Think of it as a living sacrifice to the god emperor.

    Everyone was saying this in 2016 – the “establishment lane” versus the “insurgent ceiling”. The “ceiling” kept rising higher and higher until eventually everyone was bending the knee.

    Sanders will win the primaries easily. Whether that means he gets to be the candidate however is an open question because we all know the Dem elite will probably rig the convention.

    What will he deliver?

  17. Texas Jack

    Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler. Like comedic farmers in a Roald Dahl classic, they’ve been unable to catch Fabulous Mr Trump.
    Moderate Democrats should never forget ‘em nor forgive ‘em. They took a risk-edged blowtorch to what little credibility the Party had. Now all that hangs intact are AOC’s fanbase and progressive nutcases who are going to rally in favour of a PC outcome, hang the electoral maths. Which means they won’t be able to help themselves but make it seem all above-board.
    The reality? They’re sleepwalking into ensuring Bernie becomes the nominee.

  18. Roger

    What will he deliver?

    Civil war.

    Sanders will win the primaries easily.

    At the beginning it was Sanders (with the grass roots support and the young people) vs Biden (with the establishment, not-too-crazy support and the old people). Those were the two options.

    Biden proved he was not up to the challenge … sadly we all get old and Biden’s walnut ain’t what it used to be … besides that Trump was chasing the Biden family for being crooked and the Dems decided that an impeachment would be the most effective way to ensure every single American could deeply understand how crooked the Bidens really are. That rules out one option.

    Sanders is what you have left.

    The “Establishment Democrats” played and lost, but now we figure out if they are will to accept that loss.

    The “Box” is a bit of a wildcard, but I don’t expect he really wants to win, mostly he is buying influence. I doubt he can win against Trump.

  20. What will he deliver?

    The government the juveniles thought they wanted.

  21. JC

    The “Box” is a bit of a wildcard, but I don’t expect he really wants to win, mostly he is buying influence.

    The Box is 78 and worth US$61.5 billion. it was recently $62 billion, but he’s already blown $500 million on the election. What influence does this fucker want to buy?

  22. JC

    In reality the D’rat party should not exist. Hopefully, come the convention, the party disintegrates by physical violence in the audience. We can hope for a Jim Jones event. They all murder each other.

  23. H B Bear

    America isn’t ready for real socialism.

    A part of it thinks it is and it is wrong.

    Bernie’s GND doc says “the arctic is on fire”. I didn’t know that.

    There is history for that.

    Should Sanders get the nomination, I would put any money on midget nanny Bloomberg running as a third party candidate. He’s 78 and has to do something with his $60bn before he croaks.

  28. Squirrel

    Every primary win for Bernie is going to be a win for the price of gold. The cumulative cost of the promises on his website are astonishing – everywhere you look, it’s trillions, or at least, hundreds of billions.

    The promise to “cut the wealth of billionaires in half over 15 years” must be focusing some very PC hearts and minds in California – say it again, “we like Mike, we like Mike….”

  29. mh

    Update: Words of encouragement from his biggest fan …

    Superb from Trump. Build up the anticipation of Bernie being robbed. If Bernie actually gets the nomination Trump knows Bernie will be absolutely destroyed over his suicidal Green New Deal alone.

    Remember when the Democrats were warning us that realistically McCain’s age must surely disqualify him from the Presidency?

  31. Zatara

    One of the things I find most amusing about this situation is that Sanders isn’t even a Democrat. He’s an Independent who happens to vote Democrat most of the time. The Dems humoured him and allowed him to tag along, just as they did in the 2016 election, because he brings an army of ardent thugs, presumably voters, with him.

    But the Democrat Party rules say that a candidate must “be a bona fide Democrat whose record of public service, accomplishment, public writings, and/or public statements affirmatively demonstrates that the candidate is faithful to the interests, welfare, and success of the Democratic Party of the United States who subscribes to the substance, intent, and principles of the Charter and the Bylaws of the Democratic Party of the United States, and who will participate in the Convention in good faith.”

    Further, candidates must affirm in writing to the DNC chairman that they “are a Democrat… are a member of the Democratic Party; will accept the Democratic nomination; and will run and serve as a member of the Democratic Party.”

    Sanders has once again grown out of their control and they might actually be forced to eat what they grew. Or trot out their ‘super-delegates’ to vote him out again, and all hell will break loose.

    The Dem Convention in Milwaukee is going to be a riot, literally.

  32. Zatara

    Oh yeah, another little known fact – When Sanders filed his candidacy for President as a Democrat this time he also filed to defend his Senate seat… as an Independent.

    So he is simultaneously running for seats in both parties and that hasn’t been much publicized yet. But it will be.
