This post goes to why the MSM and TPTB do whatever they can to shut Bernie OUT - see also = http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/09/03/1417908/-Today-NPR-made-Sanders-an-unperson-at-least-for-NPR-listeners - as the mouth piece of TPTB is not just privately owned corp(se)oRATion sources - but is also "supposedly" public broadcast sources.

Read Micah White's "Four Years" interview I think the MSM trying shut Bernie out could work to help the anti-establishment people understand that they have a chance to steal the top spot not only from the GOP but from the Dems as well. Bernie poses a threat to both parties and if Trump can win the GOP ticket the "system" could be blown apart with a Bernie win, if it is Clinton or Biden and even if Trump does win, it will only change a little if at all.

If you want to end police violence, if you want to stop police from killing black people, killing other people, then you need to be in a position where you’re appointing the police, where you’re picking the police commissioner, where you’re actually picking who the police chief is going to be in each city. If you want to change the police or abolish the police or become the boss of the police, then you have to win elections, you have to be in power. You can’t just be disruptive at the end of the day.

[ EDIT ] EXACTLY = " You can’t just be disruptive at the end of the day."

In My Opinion - the title of the book is wrong. It should be more along the lines of = Evolution of Protest - to becoming unified positive action - to transform our governments and - SO - our societies and our world to be healthy peaceful and prosperous for all.

EDIT-> And yes this is exactly why TPTB try to ignore Bernie and or belittle him and or attack him and all like him like Michah - who talk about unifying to be in the position of making change such as removing corrupt police and corrupt leadership and appointing our choices for positions in authority that represent us - and to remove them as well as soon as they stop representing as they should.

BTW - now that Boner is stepping down - what kind of ramped-up insanity will we see prior to the end of the year from the rethuglicans? Will the insanity be enough to finally kill the party? Will it be the needed wake-up call that gets the average individual to stop supporting the GOoP picks?

The new guy said Benghazi was about tearing down Clinton, what an idiot telling the truth on TV!!

One can only hope America will realize that the rich are too damn rich and the GOP are all about making them richer.

The general public that supports the GOoP have got to wake up to the fact that the GOoP does not support them!

You got the "know nothings" and the "know everything" you know the ones that think they are going to come up with something so grand everyone will forget what they are doing and do what Mr. Know Everything says. Me I'm not so stupid as to think that will happen I'm just trying to kill the evil that is the GOP before it kills us all.

People!

Sign up and show your support!

Enter your zip code and RSVP to a debate watching party near you.


From day one, Bernie has said that no president, not even the best president you can possibly imagine, is enough to take on the Koch Brothers and the billionaire class all on his or her own.

This moment requires a grassroots movement of millions and millions of people. That’s what Bernie is talking about when he says we need a political revolution, and that’s what we are organizing through our campaign. And after we win the election, the movement we’re building will give us the power to take back our country from the billionaire class.

And there’s one very important step you can take right now to push our effort forward.

On October 13th — nine days from today — supporters from across the country are hosting debate watch parties during the first Democratic Primary debate of the campaign.

Right now there are more than 2,400 Debate Watch Party events already on our website. Can you find one and sign up to help grow our political revolution?

Yes, I will sign up and RSVP to attend a Debate Watch Party on October 13th.

No, but I will make a contribution of $25.43 — the average donation we've received in the past week — to help pay for the materials required to pull off the events.

What: Debate Watching Party in Fridley in Fridley

When: Tuesday, October 13ᵗʰ

6:30 pm CDT

RSVP

One thing you can expect from the night is this: when the organizing portion of the evening is complete and the debate is over, we’re going to immediately put people to work.

Movements are built in small steps, but this evening will be a big step forward for our political revolution.

But only if you sign up to attend a Debate Watch Party right now.

It’s been amazing how many of you are already organizing out there for this campaign. All across America. In every community. Nothing like this has ever happened so early on any presidential campaign in history.

I can’t to see what we’re able to accomplish together on October 13th.

All of our best,

Claire Sandberg & Zack Exley Bernie 2016

23 airstrikes september 3 Senate remain silent on issue

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (8851) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

Could you take a few minutes to build some consensus for your position? This airstrike thing seems to bother you but you never explain why.

I don't think the senate is silent on much, but whatever they do they do it with your blessing, you sure as hell do nothing to change the Senate.

A very good short video. I like the way Bernie handled the segment.

MSM keeps trying to hook Bernie up with the Donald. Doesn't matter the issue was taxing the wealthy - and that that is where the agreement comes from - Bernie actually wants to raise taxes on the wealthy as well as close loopholes of the wealthy - The Donald just says that stuff because it is popular with the people - he has no intention of increasing taxes on himself or closing loopholes. The only thing MSM is concerned about - is - tying Bernie to Donald in the public eye as a means of tainting him - because of all of the hate crap the Donald spews - the MSM hopes they can smear Bernie with the Donald and saying that Bernie agrees with the Donald (they will let drop the emphasis on the taxes connection and try to insinuate broader agreement).

A few years ago OWS brought wealth inequality to the public mind and got 70% or better support for action, Bernie Sanders is a major party candidate which has made that topic the centerpiece of his campaign and the media talks as if he can't possibly win, if they mention him at all.

That's because MSM is the corp(se)oRAT voice of the wealthy few - they want Bernie to disappear that is why they do their best to either ignore him or belittle him or try to tie him to a comparison with trump or otherwise slyly attack him.

The MSM will push HRC and Biden and even the loathsome GOP clowns - because in doing so they feel safe in preserving establishment politics = catering to the wealthy few and corp(se)oRATions.

Bernie made the cover of Time, this week and was on The Late Show, this is it, this will be the moment when we can change everything another chance won't come for a generation, 16 years ago we had a chance with Gore now we have even bigger chance now I doubt with CU and all that another chance like this will happen.

Bernie received (as I saw described in one article) a rock stars welcome (wild) when he was introduced by Stephen.
