Just when the DNC "barons" openly call for a coup against Bernie Sanders, Politico accidentally reveals Bloomberg's real mission: "slow Sanders' delegate march" on Super Tuesday


The sequence of events should not be considered random. It all started with a key question on the recent Democratic-primaries debate stage in Las Vegas.

MSNBC's Chuck Todd (you know, the one who described Bernie Sanders supporters as a "digital brownshirt brigade"), asked the candidates if the person with the most delegates at the end of the primary season should be the nominee even if they don't have a majority of the delegates. Of all the candidates, only Sanders answered positively, without hesitation. Something which, of course, shouldn't surprise us much.

The whole matter circulated around the corporate and the independent media for a while, with the progressives attempting to capitalize Bernie's response, in order to demonstrate his deeply democratic "reflexes" against the rest of the establishment candidates.

But it seems that the question was put in place by the establishment in order to test the "reflexes" of its own puppets and open the road for a general coup against Sanders.

Indeed, a few days later, the New York Times dropped the bomb.

The Times interviewed 93 party officials — all of them superdelegates, who could have a say on the nominee at the convention — and found overwhelming opposition to handing the Vermont senator the nomination if he arrived with the most delegates but fell short of a majority.

Furthermore, always according to the New York Times, "Jay Jacobs, the New York State Democratic Party chairman and a superdelegate, echoing many others interviewed, said that superdelegates should choose a nominee they believed had the best chance of defeating Mr. Trump if no candidate wins a majority of delegates during the primaries. Mr. Sanders argued that he should become the nominee at the convention with a plurality of delegates, to reflect the will of voters, and that denying him the nomination would enrage his supporters and split the party for years to come."

And the "best" part comes later [most important part highlighted]: "Should Mr. Sanders win big in the 16 states and territories holding primaries and caucuses on Super Tuesday next week, he could be on a path to the 1,991 pledged delegates needed to capture the nomination on the first ballot at the party’s convention. But if the Super Tuesday vote is sharply divided among Mr. Sanders and two or more other rivals, the Vermont senator could find himself with more delegates than the competition but not enough to win the nomination outright. Under the current rules, the convention would then go to a second ballot. On that vote, all 3,979 pledged delegates and 771 superdelegates would be free to vote for any candidate they chose."

The news outraged progressives. They see now that the DNC establishment is going to ignore the popular vote and put its own favorite to lead the party prior to the November presidential election. In essence, the DNC "barons" are openly call for a coup against Bernie Sanders! And they don't seem to care that much if the party will be eventually fragmented and damaged beyond repair. Their top priority is to maintain neoliberal order and Sanders is the biggest threat for them right now.

But the "surprises" don't end here. Yesterday, Politico published an interesting article about the people who are building the image of Michael Bloomberg. The article impressively reveals key aspects of a quite aggressive PR campaign with a mission to turn a repulsive billionaire into a likeable candidate. Yet, more impressively, the article is also recognizing the very limited potential of Bloomberg to become a political figure capable to attract the popular vote.

We can assume that even Bloomberg himself understands that he has no chance against a candidate with the popularity of Bernie Sanders. So, why bother spending so much money in the primaries? The answer can be found "buried" somewhere in that Politico article [most important part highlighted]: "A big Bloomberg win on Super Tuesday is hard to imagine. Instead, he could help slow Sanders’ delegate march while earning delegates of his own in red states and in the South and positioning himself as the main alternative to the frontrunner."

It all makes sense now. Bloomberg threw himself the last minute in the primaries battle, using his massive money firepower, just to stop Bernie Sanders. We have to assume that this was a plan of the last minute, in full cooperation with the DNC "barons" of his own class, when they saw with terror that any other anti-Bernie campaign simply doesn't work.

So, now, you get the picture. Bloomberg's primary mission is to prevent Sanders reach the adequate number of delegates to win the nomination. And we can assume that the other candidates have the same mission too. They are all on board to stop Sanders by all means. Under these circumstances, our guess is that neither Elizabeth Warren is going to withdraw soon to endorse Sanders in order to help him reach the delegate threshold. She has already tried to sabotage Bernie in several occasions.

But all this anti-Bernie parody may eventually backfire, one more time. And it could be the final and biggest backfire against the corrupted DNC establishment. Because the whole thing could mobilize even more working-class people to support Sanders across America, as they see now clearly that he is their man.

With a continuously growing movement behind him, Bernie could gain so much momentum that he could become practically unbeatable. Not only against the DNC "barons", but also against Trump. This very difficult mission regarding the number of delegates, with all that war against him, may eventually be proved possible.

But if this whole dirty thing eventually pass, our guess is that Berners will burn down the party ...

  1. G'damn right we'll burn the party down. We revolted in 1776 because our government didn't represent us, if they screw the will of the people and try to force us to choose between two racist GOP Oligarchs, we have no option BUT civil unrest.
    #Bernieorvest isn't just a hashtag. It's a fucking promise.

    Sanders doesn’t need a conspiracy against him. He is a professional politician that has offered nothing in his whole worthless life, worked nowhere (besides being a union man) and is now a millionaire preaching about how bad it is to be a millionaire! I wish the US gets to experience his kind of ruling, they will, at last, debunk the “socialist’s utopian rule”. Only idiots don’t realize that there is no free meal in life and that everything has to be paid by someone. The main problem with Sander’s rhetoric and one that would bring his insane ideas to their own terminal cycle is that corporations that he’s aiming to tax, with all their shareholders on their backs (shareholders that are millions of working people and have invested in them) will react to anything excessive (I bet they already have plans on what to do in case Sanders gets elected) and Sanders will end up with a lot less to tax (they’ll flee! - just like Microsoft fled when the federal government tried to overtax them). Then bye bye UBI, bye bye Universal Healthcare systems , bye bye insanity. In the meanwhile the UK and the NHS and The Swedish systems have more deaths per million than even the Swiss that are hit way harder by COVID19 than them because they are neighboring Italy. These are the lessons for everybody to notice.

    Central planning does not work and crumbles when on piece of the domino topples over.

    The NHS for example, has had problems for a very long time. Their pension system’s future projection, in terms of its sustainability, is reported to have a deficit of 5 times their GDP !!!! The very fact created a side-effect. NHS doctors are more reluctant to work overtime and thus there has been shortages in medical staff for a long time. Now the pandemic hits them and their so widely advertised system (with which I have personal experience with - not the greatest I might add) can’t compensate.

    One other point, UK citizens are not famous for their oral hygiene and appearance. Their “free” NHS makes them PAY for any dental work and thus nobody pays the extra “buck” to fix their teeth. In contrast, one of the few areas that Greece has left free market to operate is the dentist profession. In Greece they have one of the cheapest and best quality services on the planet because dentists have to compete with each other to provide the cheapest and best services they can offer (or they’ll lose customers).

    IMO, a mix between public and private sector health services is the best. The weak and unfortunate should always be covered (provided there is proof of them being weak and unfortunate and not just lazy and free riding) but the free market works optimally for the rest. That’s a fact!

    P.S. If you ban comments you won’t have a chance to learn anything. Living in an echo chamber is the sign of a fanatic (not to use a harsher term).

    1. I didn't ban any comment. You are a liar and therefore, whatever you say is not reliable.

Operation Mindfuck: The origins of the Illuminati conspiracy fraud and how it became popular in our times

From the new documentary Can 't Get You Out of My Head by Adam Curtis   globinfo freexchange   The first settlers had come from Europe to America to flee from the corruption of power in the Old World. But although they had got away from the old power, they hadn't got away from their suspicious minds, and alone, out in the vast wilderness of the new America, that led them to imagining dark, hidden conspiracies in their own government, far away in Washington.    One of the first of these, in the early 19th century, said that a secret group from Europe, called the Bavarian Illuminati, were running a giant conspiracy in America to destroy the new democracy. In reality, the Illuminati had been a utopian movement who wanted to replace religion with reason. But instead, they now became the first of a series of frightening suspicions that fed off the isolation of the settlers in the New World.    One night (in 1958, somewhere in the vicinity of Whittier, California), Kerry Thornley

QAnon and Russiagate: How the capitalist elites produced a mass conspiracy hysteria to maintain power

globinfo freexchange   In his new documentary Can't Get You Out of My Head , Adam Curtis traces the origins of popular conspiracy theories that survived up to our days and spread rapidly due to Internet. As a result, Curtis finds that Trump election and Brexit triggered a conspiracy paranoia that took over both the liberal establishment and the ultra-conservative camp. The story begins in the late 60s, when Kerry Thornley and his friend Greg Hill had started what they called Operation Mindfuck . They had spread the conspiracy theory that the Illuminati were really the secret rulers of the world. They had done it to parody and ridicule all conspiracy theories because they thought that they undermined the confidence of individuals and made them easier to control.    But now, in the mass of data online, those stories about the Illuminati got mixed up with other conspiracies, both true and false, and out of it came extraordinary dreamlike stories built out of fragments of truth and fic

Ποιος ολιγάρχης θα πηδήξει πρώτος από το κυβερνητικό Μητσοτακικό καράβι που βουλιάζει;

failed evolution   Όλα δείχνουν ότι η αντίστροφη μέτρηση για την πτώση του Μητσοτακικού καθεστώτος έχει αρχίσει. Το καθεστώς δέχτηκε απανωτά χτυπήματα σε όλα τα μέτωπα, με κεντρικό, βεβαίως, το μέτωπο της πανδημίας. Η αποτυχία του καθεστώτος όσον αφορά τα μέτρα και το πρόγραμμα εμβολιασμών, που απ'ότι φαίνεται χωλαίνει, θα αποτελέσει την αρχή του τέλους της αποτυχημένης Μητσοτακικής διακυβέρνησης.   Η απέλπιδα προσπάθεια ενός τραγικού Μητσοτάκη να κινητοποιήσει τα αντανακλαστικά των νοικοκυραίων, πάντα με τη βοήθεια της μιντιακής χούντας, χρησιμοποιώντας την πρόσφατη επίθεση εναντίον αστυνομικού, φαίνεται ότι πέφτει στο κενό. Οι νοικοκυραίοι μεσαιοταξίτες δεν "τσιμπάνε" πλέον με τέτοιου είδους φτηνά επικοινωνιακά κολπάκια, πολύ απλά γιατί βλέπουν ότι το παρατεταμένο λοκντάουν του ενός έτους, τους εξοντώνει συστηματικά κυρίως στον οικονομικό τομέα.

EU more worried about Parma ham branding than COVID vaccine patents

How did EU governments decide to oppose a global measure that could boost production of COVID vaccines and medicines for the global south? You won’t get the slightest hint from official EU sources. But leaked documents reveal that the Commission and member states see the real problem as a mere PR issue of how to deflect criticism. Given the pandemic, their position seems indefensible.   Corporate Europe Observatory   Part 4 - The world needs to understand the EU better   To almost anyone, to the public, that would be where the story ended – with no insight into how the EU’s decision to oppose the India/ South Africa proposal was made, nor into what arguments were considered. But then sometimes, with a stroke of luck, documents are leaked. And in this case, documents from a German Ministry ended up with Corporate Europe Observatory (unfortunately they cannot be made public). According to those documents, the proposed India/ South Africa waiver was discussed on three occasions in the Tra

Νέα απόπειρα περαιτέρω μετάλλαξης του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ από την ντόπια ολιγαρχία καθώς το κυβερνών καράβι της Μητσοτακοδεξιάς βουλιάζει

globinfo freexchange   Ήδη από τον Ιούλιο του '15, ανιχνεύσαμε την πιο σοβαρή απόπειρα της ντόπιας ολιγαρχίας, σε συνεργασία πάντα με τους δανειστές της Τρόικας, να μεταλλάξουν τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ σε συστημικό κόμμα, κομμένο και ραμμένο στα μέτρα τους. Η μεγάλη επιτυχία των ολιγαρχών και του άξονα Βρυξελλών-Βερολίνου, ήταν η απομάκρυνση της επικίνδυνης γι'αυτούς Αριστερής πλατφόρμας από το κόμμα.    Όπως είχαμε γράψει πριν από ένα χρόνο, μετά την εικονική έξοδο από τα μνημόνια, οι ολιγάρχες άρχισαν να φοβούνται ότι ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ θα μπορούσε να εκτροχιαστεί από την "κανονικότητά" τους. Δεν είναι τυχαίο ότι η "κανονικότητα" άρχισε να πλασάρεται, ως έννοια, από τους μιντιακούς παπαγάλους, όταν οι ντόπιοι ολιγάρχες και το νεοφιλελεύθερο ιερατείο είδαν τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ να "τσινάει" και να αρχίζει να σκαλίζει διάφορα μεγάλα σκάνδαλα. Έτσι, η "κανονικότητα" ταυτίστηκε με την άνοδο της Μητσοτακικής δεξιάς στην εξουσία, που θα γλίτωνε τη χώρα από τους επικίνδυνους

Αν είσαι Κούλης ...

globinfo freexchange Δεν παραδέχεσαι πότε, ούτε εμμέσως, ως πρωθυπουργός μιας χώρας, ότι η χώρα αυτή είναι προτεκτοράτο. Εκτός και αν είσαι ... Κούλης.   Όχι βέβαια ότι δεν το ξέραμε. Ότι δηλαδή η χώρα είναι εδώ και δεκαετίες Αμερικανικό προτεκτοράτο και πιο πρόσφατα, Γερμανική αποικία χρέους. Αλλά ένας πρωθυπουργός υποτίθεται ότι δεν πρέπει να τα λέει αυτά (ούτε άμεσα, ούτε πλαγίως, ούτε με κανένα τρόπο), γιατί είναι σαν να δηλώνει υποταγή με τον πιο επίσημο τρόπο και να παραδέχεται ανοιχτά ότι δεν πρόκειται να αλλάξει ποτέ αυτή η κατάσταση.  Αλλά είπαμε. Όταν είσαι Κούλης και θεωρείς τη χώρα τσιφλίκι που κληρονόμησες απ'τον μπαμπά για να το παραδώσεις βορά σε ντόπια και ξένα συμφέροντα, δεν δίνεις σημασία σε τέτοιες "λεπτομέρειες". Αυτά είναι ψιλά γράμματα για το Πριγκιπόπουλο του Μητσοτακιστάν. Λόγω αλαζονείας, λόγω αμετροέπειας και τελικά λόγω ... βλακείας.   Ο Κούλης, λοιπόν, κατηγόρησε τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ για "σατανικό σχέδιο" (εδώ γελάνε και οι πιο "ψεκασμένο

End of the Megamachine: How capitalism & its crises have turned us into a failing civilization

Going Underground   Fabian Scheidler, author of The End of the Megamachine. A Brief History of a Failing Civilization ( https://www.megamaschine.org/en/​ ), discusses why capitalism is in terminal crisis due to its continuous growth model. Why he classifies human civilization as a failing civilization. How capitalism will likely not go through a sudden collapse but rather transition into something else. How crises such a climate change and coronavirus continue to break capitalism. The role of neoliberalism in accelerating capitalism’s collapse. Capitalism’s reliance on 70% of the world being cheap labour. The role of regime change and debt in keeping nations poor.
