The super PAC ‘BeatBernie2020’ has amped up its negative ads recently in the Super Tuesday states.
As you could expect of any super PAC, the money and organization behind it remains opaque. There’s been quit a bit of grass roots investigating being done and, though there’s no concrete reporting of people involved with it, there has been some discovery of its physical location in s Washington D.C. office building.
The building itself is nothing more than rental commercial rental space with half the space occupied by local governmental agencies, the real estate grift ‘WeWork’ and finally ‘Mylan Pharma’

Mylan pharma is the white collared grift where the investors bought the rights to make and distribute Epipens.

Schools, EMT’s and some government building are now required to carry these life saving pens. Mylan has jacked the price because of those requirements. It’s a way to extort your tax dollars thru school and property taxes. Let’s call it crony capitalism, again.
Mylan CEO happens to be Joe Manchin’s daughter Heather Bresch. Should be interesting if confirmed. Gunna be awkward at the senate Christmas party.

It was never meant to be anything more than a spontaneous occupation of space to make a political point. It wasn't a "movement" it wasn't an "organization" No leaders were needed to organize further protests or to keep the movement moving.

Rather than "leaders" Occupy had instigators.


What they had, and what killed it as a movement, was those Godawful "general assemblies" that took the movement from "stop the oligarchs" to a few hundred hipsters screeching "LOOK AT MEEEEEEEEEEEE."

Traffic was bad getting home to Tacoma last night. The 5 Freeway south was a parking lot from Hwy 18 to the Dome.

I took the back way and got home nearly the same time I always do. smile

Krystal Ball dropping alot of truth bombs this morning. What should have been painfully obvious to the 'smart set' has ben incomprehensible for the most part.




I think the Dems will steal it in the brokered convention. They will go with a fascist rather than let a leftist win. I took a rack of sh!t by stating Dems are, in fact, more illiberal than Republicans when it comes to primaries. I wouldn't expect any difference in a brokered convention. I look forward to warming my hands to the fire

Does it frighten you that Bernie might win?

Why?

I think I am getting even more confused. I have now read that "Bernie is winning" "all the wins of Bernie", etc. As far as I can tell he has actually had two seriously marginal wins and that's it. I will give in on the crowds for Bernie but the simple fact remains. Two candidates, Ami and Mayor Whatever, both of which are running in the same space if put together beat the hell out of Bernie. When you add in Bloomberg it really gets serious. From what I can gather the far left wing of the Democratic party is approximately 20% to 25% of the Democratic party.

This being the case the major problem of those who don't want Bernie is that they have too many choices to make and have split up 75% of the Democratic party. So, them not with Bernie, but part of the Democratic party, will, at some point, lose or start cutting deals should the Dems beat Trump. In that realm it will turn into a who gets what sort of deal. Lots to deal with there; vice president, a number of agencies up for grabs, state, etc.

I suspect that will get kinda interesting all on its own?
