RE: Democratic primary thread now that Yang thread gone.
the dems did their math and probably also concluded that Yang was the most likely candidate to beat Trump, if he got the right backing

since they failed to do that we can only conclude that the DEMS are working with the REPUBS to ensure another 4 more years of Trump

We can conclude many possibilities, but I doubt that is one of them.

If the Democrats wanted Trump in power then they wouldn't have made a mockery of themselves for the past 3 years by trying to remove him from office, and imprisoning associates of his based on trumped up charges.

Yang never had the support from the public that Sanders or even Biden has. He was a likeable personality but his UBI thing was considered a joke by most people. If he had been the great savior of the DNC who was going to beat Trump, we'd have seen much bigger numbers for him in the past few caucuses and much more hype on social media. The #YangGang ended up being mostly younger Asian-Americans who supported Yang because of his ethnicity.


The Democrats seem to be really lost, they don't have a clue how to defeat Trump. Everything they do in response just makes them look more foolish.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

i think it's a whole distraction campaign

Caroll Quigley said that the two parties are basically the same.

it would make sense for the money power to fund two diff. teams that fight on some non-essential issues while holding the exact same foreign policy

I forgot that Bloomberg is a New York Jew. There could be a lot of powerful people in the shadows who want to see him succeeed.


Quote:Two Jewish House members endorse Bloomberg after debate shellacking

Democratic representatives Lowey and Gottheimer back billionaire candidate after he takes a beating from rivals, signalling still strong support within party apparatus

WASHINGTON — Two prominent Jewish Democratic members of Congress endorsed Michael Bloomberg for president Thursday, one day after he took a beating in his debate debut for the Democratic primary.

Veteran New York Congresswoman Nita Lowey, who is chair of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, and New Jersey Congressman Josh Gottheimer announced their support of the former New York City mayor Thursday. The endorsements may signal that Bloomberg maintains strong party ties despite intense attacks from his rivals.

“Democrats need a candidate at the top of the ticket who can win,” said Gottheimer in a statement. “As he demonstrated as an entrepreneur and mayor, Mike is a proven problem solver. He isn’t afraid to speak his mind, and knows that you’ll never make lasting progress with scorched earth tweets, nasty personal attacks, or an all-or-nothing extremist approach to governing.”

Bloomberg, a former Republican, is seen as a moderate and his polling numbers had been rising as former vice president Joe Biden, another mainline candidate, has slumped in recent weeks.

Both Lowey and Gottheimer are known as moderate Democrats. In an interview with The Times of Israel last November, Lowey said she was inclined to support Biden but was waiting to make an endorsement.

California Congressman Pete Aguilar also endorsed the billionaire businessman on Thursday.

All three have histories and connections with Bloomberg. Gottheimer’s brother in law, Bradley Tusk, is the philanthropist’s campaign manager. And Lowey’s former chief of staff, Howard Wolfson, is now a top adviser to his campaign.

Bloomberg now has total of 15 congressional endorsements, putting him behind only Biden, who has more than three times that amount.

On Wednesday night, Bloomberg’s five Democratic rivals pounced on the former mayor’s record on policing, treatment of women and support for workers.

At a debate in Las Vegas ahead of the Nevada caucuses on Saturday, multiple candidates attacked him 45 times, according to NBC News’ “Attack Tracker.”

That was more than twice the number of attacks made on Sanders, the second-most attacked candidate.

Many of those criticisms were of his support for stop-and-frisk measures as New York City mayor that disproportionately impacted communities of color and for alleged sexist comments he made degrading women who worked for his company.

“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against,” said Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. “A billionaire who calls women ‘fat broads’ and ‘horse-faced lesbians,’ and no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.”

Several of his competitors called for him to release women who worked for him from non-disclosure agreements prohibit both parties from discussing certain information.

“None of them accused me of anything other than maybe they didn’t like a joke I told,” Bloomberg said at one point. “They signed the agreements, and that’s what we’re going to live with.”

Then again I'm surprised Buttguy does so well.

I'm out of touch with the thinking of Democrats I guess.

Bernie getting the Red Menace McCarthy style smear now.

The DNC is afraid of Bernie. They know he isn't electable but he looks like he is running away with the nomination.


Meanwhile, Andrew Yang has some suggestions;

Yang calls on someone to 'pull an Andrew Yang' and bow out of 2020 race

Tech entrepreneur and former 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang on Saturday called for some of the remaining Democratic primary contenders to follow him and drop out of the race.

"Someone needs to pull an Andrew Yang and be like, 'I've done the math. I'm not going to win,'" Yang said on CNN after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was projected to win the Nevada caucuses, further cementing the democratic socialist as the front-runner in the race.

Addressing the characteristics of the Democratic primary, Yang said that the rest of the field would ideally "consolidate" but noted that "each candidate wants to be the last person standing to absorb the non-Bernie energy."

"The problem for Bernie is that he’s unlikely to get an outright majority heading into the convention, which is going to set the stage for the superdelegates to emerge," Yang, who suspended his long-shot bid after poor performances in Iowa and New Hampshire, said. "And then you’re looking at a contested convention, which is also the dream scenario for non-Bernie candidates."

The Associated Press called the Nevada race with about 50 percent of precincts reporting and Sanders receiving about 46.7 percent of that vote. Former Vice President Joe Biden was in a distant second with 19.2 percent of the vote. The win builds on the momentum Sanders created following a win in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary.

National and state polls have consistently shown Sanders with sizable leads over the rest of the field. But election forecasts are predicting that he may not earn a majority of pledged delegates at the Democratic National Convention in July, setting up a scenario in which unpledged delegates, or superdelegates, will help decide the nominee.

"The superdelegates, let's say, are not going to be favorably disposed towards Bernie, and each of the remaining candidates will say, like, you know, 'I'm the pick,'" Yang said on Saturday. "So that's the dream that's going to keep every other candidate in the race."

If no Democratic candidate gets a majority of pledged delegates, there would be a second ballot at the convention in July. In this situation, votes would come from two sets of delegates — votes from the 3,979 pledged delegates and 771 votes from superdelegates. Pledged delegates would also be free to change their choice on subsequent ballots, with the candidate who earns a majority winning the nomination.

The main reason the DNC don't get behind Bernie has got to be that they just don't want to admit they are trying to bring about socialism.

It would be too big of "Aha, gotcha!" for conservatives, to point and say "All these years, we warned the American people!"

They want to do the Fabian socialist thing, of doing it so slowly that people don't even realize big government is here, and freedom of speech and the right to bear arms are no more.

Trump seems to be playing his part as well.

the great work is basically world socialism

the capitalism bs is used to enrich the leaders while they work towards this universal goal

world control means world uniformity, which means technocratic socialism

it's so easy to see

america never was and never has been about tradition

you cannot remake the world without uniformity and homogeneity in thought

this is America's great goal to homogenize and standardize

hence why other more ancient cultures are called 3rd world, while deracinated, cultureless USA is called 1st world

america is actually the great enemy of diversity

everywhere I go around the world, and I travel A LOT, I see americanization

flip flops and cheeseburgers

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) led the Democratic field in a Sunday CBS News-YouGov poll that also saw Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) rise to second place following a strong debate performance last week.

Sanders led with 28 percent, followed by Warren with 19 percent, former Vice President Joe Biden with 17 percent and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg with 13 percent. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) rounded out the field with 10 percent and 5 percent, respectively.

Fifty percent of respondents said they found Warren the most impressive candidate at last week’s debate in Las Vegas, where she took aim at Bloomberg’s history of sexist remarks in the first debate for which the former mayor qualified.

The poll also showed Sanders performing best against President Trump in a head-to-head match-up, at 47 percent to 44 percent, followed by Biden, with 47 percent to 45 percent and Warren with 46 percent to 45 percent. Buttigieg and Trump were tied in a head-to-head match-up at 44 percent each, while the president led Klobuchar 45 percent to 44 percent and Bloomberg 45 percent to 42 percent.

However, the poll also found that 65 percent of voters expect Trump to be reelected.

The poll was conducted Feb. 20 to Feb. 22 among 10,000 registered voters, including 6,498 Democrats and independents planning to vote in the Democratic primary. The full sample has a 1.2 percentage point margin of error, while the sample of likely Democratic primary voters has a 1.7 percentage point margin of error.

You are talking about the New World Order, and yet, ascribing the plan to America.
