A Game Of Clones

The Democratic Party’s policy to press their kill-switch on any progressive candidate in primary elections has been in effect at least since their dumping of Henry Wallace as nominee for Vice President to FDR in 1944. The most recent manifestation of their kill-switch was with Bernie in 2016, when John Podesta, Donna Brazille, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz etc. broke the DNC’s own rules and conspired to tip the scales against Bernie. They made certain that Sanders didn’t win the Democrat party nomination (despite Hillary being the most disliked Democrat party presidential candidate ever). This was prior to any question of Russian influence in the 2016 election. Whether the source of hacks into the DNC was from Russia or not, the content of the hacked e-mails showing the corruption of the DNC has never been challenged on CNN or even mentioned for that matter.

Now in 2019 ‘Queen Hillary’ (viz. the powers that be within the Democratic Party), her cohorts in the main stream corporate media (CNN, MSNBC) and her think-tanks (e.g. the ironically titled ‘Center for American Progress’ headed by staunch Hillary supporter Neera Tanden since November 2011) want to devise a less blatant way to make sure that no genuine progressive wins the Democrat nomination. Their strategy:

Corey Booker

Corey Booker has voted against Bernie’s amendment which would have allowed Americans to import the same medicine available (and made) in the USA much more cheaply from Canada. Not progressive.

Pete Buttigieg

Pete Buttigieg is a corporate centrist candidate for 2020 masquerading as progressive. He met with Neera Tanden in April 2019 to discuss the ‘Bernie problem’. Neera Tanden is a notorious Hillary Clinton corporate advocate and anti-progressive.

John Delaney

John Delaney: why is he running for President? Because he is being paid off to scare-monger about Medicare for all? You decide.

Tulsi Gabbard, Progressive Warrior

Aloha Tulsi, Progressive Warrior!

Kirsten Gillibrand

Kamala Harris

Kamala Harris, portrayed by CNN as having got a bump in their poll because of her criticism of Joe Biden on his stance in the 70s regarding being against Federally proscribed busing. The July 1st poll showed that 36% of respondents hadn’t even paid much attention to either of the first two Democratic Party debates, but had watched the following news coverage on them instead. To a significant extent, CNN’s poll reflected their own propaganda about the debate with Bernie, Biden, Harris, Gillibrand, Buttigieg etc.

Casual Agenda

John Hickenlooper - his reason for running is to fear-monger about Medicare for all. Who is paying him off? Corporate stooge.

Joe Biden

Beto O’Rourke

Beto O’Rourke - corporate democrat - claimed he was born to run in Vanity Fair. Wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care.

Bernie Sanders

Front runner, Bernie Sanders’ generation 18 - 34 who were ignored in the Easter poll that put Joe Biden as front-runner on CNN

Eric Swalwell

Eric Swalwell, Clinton supporter in 2016, dropped out of the 2020 race July 8 2019

Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren, former Republican. She has brazenly adopted much of Bernie’s language and 2016 platform despite endorsing Hillary Clinton in that election. She lacks moral courage. She says she has a plan for that, but has no plan for Medicare for all (just like Hillary). Another centrist masquerading as progressive. Close but no cigar.
