        I will give up this first and all others to have the guarantee that comes November, we will have a change in the White House, with God’s help.

        I refuse to give in to cynicism, but by Zeus, I am beginning to panic. I may have to put my running shoes and get to the polls to vote for a serial socialist whose dream has been to destroy the democratic party. And. I. Will. Gladly. Do. It. because there is no other choice.

        Focus, NCLB girl, focus.

    All of our candidates have weaknesses. “SOCIALISM TAG” is a giant albatross for Bernie. I love Joe! But Joe has a BUMBLING problem. (I’m SORRY!) Mayor Pete is brilliant and fresh. But he’S ALSO very INEXPERIENCED and programmed (plus the “problem” that should NOT be a problem.) Amy can be IRRITATING. But she’s also smart and capable as hell. Elizabeth is smart and capable x 100 – Oh? She’s so smart she’s un-likable? (b*tch like Hillary)

        Magapie, you’ll be OK with a response, I feel that!
        Warren was standing up for all women – we cannot have another Trump. She has been a uniter all along and ‘above the fray’ in debates until Nevada. Thank heavens she roasted Bloomberg good and proper, who has at least 40 accusations by women against him. The POD Save America crew was remarking how polite the Warren campaign is, and how her staff are 100% set on voting for whoever is the nominee. Women candidates are always trashed or forgotten by the media. Women are ready for a woman president. Ms. Warren has repeated her basic points and it is time to show her intellect and experience, legal & other.
        –imo Ms Warren can talk rings around the lot of them….and must now must be willing to show it.

    To our IC:
    Please come out and tell what you know. Mr. Maguire, just fired by Trump, what do you know?
    There are countless patriots,who have long-protected America regardless of party, in our Intelligence community.
    Imagine the boss of the Gambino family running the country….
    Trump is no different. He has brought his NY Mafia scene and its vast corruption openly to the White House.
    The WH is now an organized crime ring.

    Where does that leave you?
    Get them OUT.

      “Before long, Hitler claimed more power.
      The fire in the Reichstag, the parliament building, was a key moment in this development.
      On 27 February 1933, guards noticed the flames blazing through the roof. They overpowered the suspected arsonist, a Dutch communist named Marinus van der Lubbe. He was executed after a show trial in 1934.
      Evidence of any accomplices was never found.The Nazi leadership was quick to arrive at the scene.
      An eyewitness said that upon seeing the fire, Göring called out: ‘This is the beginning of the Communist revolt, they will start their attack now! Not a moment must be lost!’
      Before he could go on, Hitler shouted: ‘There will be no mercy now. Anyone who stands in our way will
      be cut down.’
      The next morning, President Von Hindenburg promulgated the Reichstag Fire Decree.
      It formed the basis for the dictatorship. The civil rights of the German people were curtailed. Freedom of expression was no longer a matter of course and the police could arbitrarily search houses and arrest people. The political opponents of the Nazis were essentially outlawed.
      …On 23 March 1933, the Reichstag met in Berlin. The main item on the agenda was a new law, the ‘Enabling Act’. It allowed Hitler to enact new laws without interference from the president or Reichstag for a period of four years.”

    • February 21, 2020 at 12:15 pm

      Gleichschaltung =
      The standardization of political, economic, and social institutions as carried out in authoritarian states.
      “Now that Hitler had become so powerful, it was time for the Nazis to bring society in line with
      the Nazi ideal.
      The process was known as Gleichschaltung.
      Many politically-suspect and Jewish civil servants were dismissed. Trade unions were forcibly replaced by the Deutsche Arbeitsfront. This allowed the Nazis to prevent workers from organising any opposition.All existing political parties were banned. From mid-July 1933 onwards, Germany was a single-party state. Cultural and scientific ‘cleansings’ were carried out as well.According to the Nazis, everything ‘un-German’ had to disappear. Books written by Jewish, left-wing, or pacifist writers were burned.”

    • February 21, 2020 at 12:15 pm

      “After taking power, Hitler and the Nazis turned Germany into a dictatorship.
      Time and again, they used legal means to give their actions a semblance of legality. Step by step, Hitler managed to erode democracy until it was just a hollow facade. ”

    Trump and his entire catastrophe is a sham, but by god he is going to raise those oil sanctions for Putin.

    • February 21, 2020 at 11:34 am

      Trump is an illegitimate president and he knows it.
      He scraped a win thanks to Putin, MoscowMitch intervention, and other corporate finagling.
      Is why Trump just put in 2 new ignorant yes-men puppets at the head of the our National Intelligence community,
      after firing now-former Acting DNI Maguire for delivering the factual IC briefing:
      Russia is interfering once again in our general election and our Democratic primary.
      = Once again.
      = Illegitimate.

    More on the Neo-fascist strategy of Gleichschaltung:
    (see above on this thread)
    Bannon, one of Trumputin’s architects, is a strong promoter of ‘palingenetic ultra-nationalism’
    and he argued from the beginning that Judeo-Christians should bring back (ethno)nationalism.
    He is a supporter of Julius Evola who said:
    “Fascism is too little. We would have wanted a fascism that is more radical, more intrepid, a fascism that is
    truly absolute, made of pure force…unavailable for any compromise.”

    • February 21, 2020 at 12:38 pm

      “But first there had to be a deconstruction of the political “governing class”
      and of the state in its current form.” (John Foster)
      “We have seen “an assault not the major branches of the state and the ideological state apparatus, transgressing legal and political norms and seeking to vastly increase the power of he presidency.”
      All the major sectors of the state have come under attack,
      st.arting on January 27 2017 when Trump banned immigrants from 7 basically Muslim countries by executive order. When it was overturned, he made personal attacks on the judges in an attempt to deligitimse them.

    • February 21, 2020 at 12:43 pm

      We’ve seen Trump and Barr’s (and McConnell’s) relentless attempts to bring the U.S. judiciary to heel.
      Now they’re focused on destabilizing the Intelligence Community that protects us all.
      They are openly undermining U.S. national security in tandem with the Kremlin.
      –What is our response?

    Democrats are trying their best to win against republicans in the elections.

    But this challenge is not the focus of the AOC-led PAC that is determined to run against incumbents.

    I have tried my best not to say much about Sanders. But if this is what his supporters, led by AOC are focused on, then this may challenge my promise to keep my peace.

    Why would Democrats elect Bernie given the destructive actions of his supporters like AOC.

    Lord, help me to remain calm because this is really perplexing

    Rachel Maddow:
    “It has sort of gone without much mention that it’s not just the president’s friend here who’s getting this intervention. This is a case where the president is intervening to help himself, because the person who benefitted from what Roger stone did, the person who Roger stone’s crimes were designed to protect was the president.
    So when the president is trying to intervene in Stone’s case to make sure he doesn’t get in trouble, he is trying to reward someone and protect someone who broke the law and committed multiple felonies in order to cover up the president’s behavior.”

    We are the little people paying the little people taxes, and navigating the little people’s politics.
    Meanwhile the owners of the planet are making all the cash they want, e.g. Amazon is free of taxes.
    Regardless of the nature of politics,
    democratic or fascist,
    global corporations and the owner class get richer and richer at our expense.
    –The top Democratic candidates are not our enemy,
    –But they must free themselves from corporate control.
