Lat week Hillary Clinton pinned the blame of her pathetic election defeat to Donald Trump not only on Russia, Comey, sexism, Fox News, Macedonians, etc…but also on Bernie Sanders.

The excerpt from the Hill highlights Hillary’s logic in blaming progressive Sanders…

“That’s what it was like in policy debates with Bernie. We would promise a bold infrastructure investment plan or an ambitious new apprenticeship program for young people, and then Bernie would announce basically the same thing, but bigger. On issue after issue, it was like he kept promising four-minute abs, or even no-minutes abs. Magic abs!”

The Gateway Pundit reports…

Failed Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders fired back at Hillary Clinton’s comments regarding Sanders in her upcoming book detailing her election loss.

Sanders speculated whether anyone actually believed any of her ridiculous stories. While on “All In with Chris Hayes” on MSNBC, Sen. Sanders responded to an excerpt from Clinton’s book wherein her policy adviser Jake Sullivan called Sanders’ policy ideas reminiscent of a scene from “Something About Mary” wherein a hitchhiker comes up with a plan to make 7-minute abs to top 8-minute abs.

Sanders noted that his proposal of a $15 minimum wage, $1 trillion infrastructure overhaul program, “tuition free college” and “Medicare for all” are now all mainstream political ideas he promoted…not HRC.

“I.e., Bernie Sanders just stole all of Hillary Clinton’s ideas. Does anybody really believe that? The truth is, and the real story is, that the ideas that we brought forth during that campaign, which was so crazy and so radical, have increasingly become mainstream.”

Of course Bernie is to blame for the Killery’s defeat. The DNC got caught rigging the nomination against him. So, it is all Bernie’s fault for existing and being so awkwardly popular. The cheek of it!

You must agree that Bernie is a disgusting specimen. Imagine spending your whole life as a ‘Democratic’ senator and knowing nothing about the utter corruption of your profession, your party and the DNC. Bernie is either retarded of a crook. There is no third option I think.

Bernie did run as Democratic Party nominee, but as soon as he “lost” the primaries, he left the Democratic Party and now sits as an Independent Senator from Vermont. He also, along with Rand Paul, voted against the recent sanctions. So, he does seem to have some kind of independent brain, unlike the other swamp creatures.
The Deep State tantrums would have been far worse if he had been elected POTUS.

Bernie was always a Socialist and Independent. Because there is no such party he joined and often (not always) voted with the Democratic caucus. And in order for him to run he ran as a Democrat but as far as know never joined the Party He was never a Democrat and his platform is entirely different from the DNC who rigged the primary in favor of Clinton against him. Bernie Sanders does not fall in any category of a Washington politician. So I would consider Bernie Sanders a tremendous LOSS for social reform IF he were in the WH. Presidents… Read more »

Bernie is a self-professed Socialist. Because there is NO such party he votes with the Democratic Caucus. Bernie has ALWAYS done his own thing and is the most consistent politician I know . Rational people have come to understand that the President has very little say or power….So whoever sits in the WH is muzzled. So for me, Bernie Sanders, as well as Elizabeth Warren both have far more power and can make a far greater difference in the Senate than in the WH. In the meantime Bernie’s platform has become mainstream thinking. That is Bernie’s power. Bernie did not… Read more »

And you know NOTHING about Bernie, his long history of serving Vermont, nor of the American system.
Just so we all understand what you are claiming…according to you
Bernie was in cahoots/complicit with the DNC to rig the Primary AGAINST HIMSELF in favor of Clinton causing him to lose, and then he withdrew. After the Primary the loser is kicked out…he/she goes home….Got it?
Your scenario comes straight from the nuthouse. Take your meds

No – it’s Bernie’s fault for agreeing to withdraw from the race when he was ahead.
That was a BETRAYAL of the thousands upon thousands of small contributors – he ran his entire campaign on their hard-earned contributions and HE SHOULD REFUND EACH ONE OF THEM WITH AN APOLOGY!

As many others have followed the USSA elections, I do agree with you. It was a big surprise when Bernie stepped aside because he was asked to do so by the DNC. We were speechless, but you know what? According to the old Bhagavad Gita, “everything that happened was good, everything that happens now is good and everything that will happen will also be good”. No second guessing “what if?” People deserve the leaders they choose and I tend to agree with them. Two thumbs up! BTW, did you see how American “democracy” worked when Trump won? The “Democrats” still… Read more »

Bernie withrew??? and he was ahead???
Bernie lost the Primary because the DNC rigged the election against Bernie in favor of Clinton. Once the Primary was over Bernie was out.
I donated to Bernie and it was well worth it. He got his platform out which has now become mainstream. You have no clue how the system works.

Yes. Sanders withdrew. He went to tea with Obama at the White House, came out and withdrew telling his supporters to support Hilary. Just like that – but in doing so he betrayed ALL the little people who sent him their $20. He betrayed YOU! Sanders didn’t lose – he withdrew. (Go check.) Yes, Clinton was ahead – but Clinton was ahead b/o RIGGING! That rigging affects who the Dems out up – not who “the people” elect. Had Sanders gone independent he’d still have had at least a darn good chance of beating both Clinton and Trump ‘cos a… Read more »

Why do you insist on acting stark raving mad. Bernie Sanders LOST the primary (do you know what that IS?)thanks to the illegal rigging BY the DNC (do you know who they are?) in favor of Clinton AGAINST HIM. In a Primary the loser, that was Bernie goes home…There is a winner and a loser….there is NO withdrawing. He did not betray anyone. I dont know what alternate universe you reside, but I am quite familiar with elections. My husband was an elected official. So spread your nonsense elsewhere. You ramble. 1.

Bernie does not engage in “taking people down” EVER!!! Read that again! He spends his time talking TO people not AT them. Educating people on his platform. If you are looking for an average politician Bernie is not your man. I have never donated to any political campaign. But I have to Bernie and the sole reason is that he is SO FAR above any politician we have had so far that my interest is HIS platform not how he can bash someone else. .I am still donating when he asks…and it is always for an extremely good cause.

Well, thats debatable. You’re the one not familiar with the American electoral system. Does not seem to understand that after the Primary the loser goes home.
Believes that Bernie WORKED HARD to help the DNC of which he was not a member to rig the election AGAINST himself in favor of Clinton. WOW!!!
That thinking requires some serious meds.
If I were you I’d give up. You’re getting more delusional in every comment.

Trump Weighs In On The Single Worst Mistake In American History

Trump hits Bush: Invading Iraq ‘the single worst decision ever made’.

Published

on

Via Zerohedge


In a wide ranging interview with The Hill on Tuesday conducted in the Oval Office, President Trump was asked to give his take on the biggest mistake in American history.

Considering just how open-ended a question that is, it’s perhaps surprising that he merely went back less than a couple decades into the Bush presidency, though Trump’s base will certainly welcome it as it hearkens back to his “America First” foreign policy vision of the campaign trail.

“The worst single mistake ever made in the history of our country: going into the Middle East, by President Bush,” the president during his interview with Hill.TV.

“Obama may have gotten them (U.S. soldiers) out wrong, but going in is to me the biggest single mistake made in the history of our country,” he said.

Trump explained the reasoning behind this choice, and why it wasn’t something like the civil war or another defining and devastating event reaching far into American History.

“Because we spent $7 trillion in the Middle East. Now if you wanna fix a window some place they say, ‘oh gee, let’s not do it. Seven trillion, and millions of lives — you know, ‘cause I like to count both sides. Millions of lives,” the president explained.

Some scholars and humanitarian groups estimate that over one million Iraqis were killed in the US invasion and occupation of Iraq starting in 2003. A 2008 Opinion Research Business (ORB) poll, for example, found that approximately 1.03 million people had died as a result of the war.

“To me it’s the worst single mistake made in the history of our country. Civil war you can understand. Civil war, civil war. That’s different. For us to have gone into the Middle East, and that was just, that was a bad day for this country, I will tell you.”

Various estimates on the Iraq war’s cost have put the total taxpayer bill as low as near $2 trillion, but none dispute that it is in the multiple trillions, and estimates will vary widely depending on if veteran care is factored into it.

The comments echo things Trump said on the campaign trail in 2016. For example during one of his first major foreign policy speeches then candidate Trump said, “I will never send our finest into battle unless necessary, and I mean absolutely necessary, and will only do so if we have a plan for victory with a capital V.” And referencing the famous quote of John Quincy Adams, he said during the same speech, “The world must know that we do not go abroad in search of enemies.”

He had previously shocked pundits for being the first Republican nominee for president to trash George W. Bush’s decision to go to war in Iraq, and has more recently likened it to “throwing a big fat brick into a hornet’s nest”.

All of this is a hopeful sign considering the extremely heightened and dangerous tensions over Syria this week, and given Trump seems to have vacillated between “bringing the troops home” and getting more involved. On Monday Trump hinted that a decision on the U.S. role in Syria is coming soon.

Commenting on the over 2,000 troops now in Syria ostensibly as part of the “anti-ISIL” coalition campaign, Trump indicated this mission could end soon: “We’re very close to being finished with that job,” he said. He followed with: “And then we’re going to make a determination as to what we’re going to do.”

We consider it a hopeful and a good sign that Trump is possibly revisiting his “America First” foreign policy pledges by identifying the Iraq War as the worst mistake in US history.

Brett Kavanaugh eleventh hour smear begins to fall apart (Video)

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 112.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

US President Trump is urging the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh to testify and be heard.

Trump said he wants to hear from Christine Blasey Ford, noting that it would be “unfortunate” if she does not testify before a Senate committee. Trump told reporters Wednesday as he left the White House to view hurricane damage in North Carolina…

“If she doesn’t show up, that would be unfortunate.”

“If she shows up and makes a credible showing, that would be very interesting.”

From Trump’s lips to God’s ear…Blasey Ford came out to issue a statement essentially saying that she will not testify to Congress, either in an open or closed door session.

Furthermore it appears that Ford will not even allow Senate investigators to fly to California and obtain her statement from the comfort of her own home (as Senator Grassley has offered to do).

Ford is demanding an FBI investigation into an allegation with no date, time or place attached to it. 

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss the dangerous game of identity politics being played by the establishment, Democrat left, and their mainstream media minions.

The premise that a four decades old accusation is all that is needed to destroy a person’s entire life, threatens to tear down the most basic foundational values adhered to from within the US Constitution, and propel the United States of America towards a fascist state where censorship, citizen surveillance, and evidence free accusations are used to keep the establishment left in power and the American population cowered in fear.

According to Zerohedge, Democrats’ Hail Mary play to stymie the confirmation of Trump SCOTUS pick Brett Kavanaugh is beginning to fizzle out. As angry Dems demanded that a Monday hearing on the allegations against Kavanaugh be delayed until the FBI has a chance to investigate, turncoat Republicans (on whom the Dems had been depending for votes) instead withdrew their support and fell in line after Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley declared that he would not honor Democrats’ request. Grassley revealed his intention to stand firm late Tuesday after lawyers for Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey, who is claiming that Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her 35 years ago when the two were 17-year-old high school students, said their client wouldn’t be wiling to appear at Monday’s hearing.

According to the HillGrassley said Tuesday that there was “no reason” to delay the hearing now that Republicans have invited both Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, his accuser, to testify publicly. However, while Ford’s attorneys have insisted that their client has taken a polygraph test and “deserves to be heard”, Ford has bizarrely insisted that the FBI should have an opportunity to investigate her claims before she appears before the committee in order to spare her the “trauma” of confronting her alleged assailant.

Ford’s lawyers conveyed her request in the form of a letter sent to the committee, a copy of which was obtained by CNN.

Senator Grassley said he would refuse this request as several Republicans who had appeared to be on the cusp of defecting said they wouldn’t support further delays should Ford prove unwilling to testify.

Via the Hill…

“Republicans extended a hand in good faith. If we don’t hear from both sides on Monday, let’s vote,” said GOP Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.), who was one of the first Republicans to call for the Judiciary Committee to hit pause on Kavanaugh’s nomination on Sunday.

GOP Sen. Susan Collins (Maine) told reporters earlier Tuesday that Ford’s lack of response to the committee about testifying was “puzzling.”

And GOP Sen. Jeff Flake, who had threatened to vote against Kavanaugh if Ford wasn’t given the chance to be heard, told CNN that he expected the committee to move on if she doesn’t appear.

“I think we’ll have to move to the markup,” he told CNN. “I hope she does (appear). I think she needs to be heard.”

Via Zerohedge…

Kavanaugh has denied Ford’s allegations and insisted he didn’t attend the party where the physical assault allegedly took place. Patrick Smyth, a fellow former Georgetown Prep student whom Ford alleges was also in attendance during the party issued a statement via his lawyer standing up for Kavanaugh. And in a separate letter to Grassley and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, not only does Smyth repudiate Ford’s allegations, but he adds that he doesn’t remember this party even taking place.

Of course, Feinstein – who admitted last night that she couldn’t say for certain that Ford’s story is entirely truthful – sat on Ford’s allegations for three months before referring them to the FBI and sharing them with other lawmakers (who purportedly “leaked” it to the press). President Trump on Tuesday said that he “feels sorry” for Kavanaugh, adding that he doesn’t want to “play into [Democrats] hands”, presumably by giving them more time to drag out the confirmation process.

“They should have done this a long time ago, three months ago, not now. But they did it now. So I don’t want to play into their hands,” Trump said.

Without the support of their Republican allies, Democrats will lack the votes on the committee to hold up the nomination past Monday. Though bizarrely, Kavanaugh himself hasn’t said yet whether he would or wouldn’t testify, which begs the question: If neither Kavanaugh nor Ford appear at the hearing, what exactly will lawmakers discuss?

‘Hell on Earth’: MSF doctor tells RT of rape, violence, inhumane conditions in Lesbos refugee camp

One toilet for over 70 people, rape, and mental health issues – a doctor from Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and an aid worker told RT about the dire conditions in the overcrowded Moria refugee camp in Greece.

One toilet for over 70 people, rape, and mental health issues – a doctor from Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and an aid worker told RT about the dire conditions in the overcrowded Moria refugee camp in Greece.

The overcrowded camp on the island of Lesbos, built to accommodate 3,100, houses around 9,000 people. “It’s a kind of hell on Earth in Europe,” Dr. Alessandro Barberio, an MSF clinical psychiatrist, said, adding that people in the camp suffer from lack of water and medical care. “It is impossible to stay there,” he said.

According to Barberio, asylum seekers are subjected to violence “during night and day.””There is also sexual violence”which leads to “mental health issues,” he said, adding that all categories of people at the camp may be subjected to it. “There is rape against men, women and children,” and the victims of sexual violence in the camp often have nightmares and hallucinations, Barberio told RT.

Asylum seekers in Moria “are in constant fear of violence,” and these fears are not groundless, the psychiatrist said. “Such cases [of violence] take place every week.”

There is “one toilet for 72 people, one shower for 84 people. The sanitation is bad. People are suffering from bad conditions,” Michael Raeber, an aid worker at the camp, told RT. They suffer from mental health problems because they are kept for a long time in the camp, according to Raeber.

“There is no perspective, they don’t know how their case will go on, when they will ever be able to leave the island.” The camp is a “place where there is no rule of law,” with rampant violence and drug addiction among the inhabitants, Raeber said.

In its latest report, MSF, which has been working near Moria since late 2017, criticized the unprecedented health crisis in the camp – one of the biggest in Greece. About a third of the camp population consists of children, and many of them have harmed themselves, and have thought about or attempted suicide, according to the group.

Barberio was behind an MSF open letter on the state of emergency in Moria, released on Monday, in which he writes that he has never “witnessed such overwhelming numbers of people suffering from serious mental health conditions.”

Calling the camp an “island prison,” he insisted that many of his patients in the camp are unable to perform basic everyday functions, “such as sleeping, eating well, maintaining personal hygiene, and communicating.”

A number of human rights groups have strongly criticized the conditions at the camp and Greece’s “containment policy”regarding asylum seekers.

Christina Kalogirou, the regional governor of the North Aegean, which includes Lesbos, has repeatedly threatened to shut down the facility unless the government improves the conditions. On Tuesday, government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said that Greece will move 2,000 asylum seekers out of the severely overcrowded camp and send them to the mainland by the end of September.

Greece, like other EU states, is experiencing the worst refugee crisis since WWII. According to International Organization for Migration estimates, 22,000 asylum seekers have arrived in Greece since the start of this year alone.
