Bernie Sanders blasts Hillary Clinton’s accusation that he cost her the election (Video)

Bernie Sanders reacts to Hillary Clinton’s criticism of him regarding the presidential race.

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 Has Gifted “No More Wars” Policy Position To Bernie Sanders (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 148.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss how US President Donald Tump appears to have ceded his popular 2016 ‘no more wars’ campaign message and policy position to Bernie Sanders and any other US 2020 candidate willing to grad onto a non-interventionist approach to the upcoming Democrat primaries.

“Is Bernie Stealing Trump’s ‘No More Wars’ Issue?” by Patrick J. Buchanan…


The center of gravity of U.S. politics is shifting toward the Trump position of 2016.

“The president has said that he does not want to see this country involved in endless wars… I agree with that,” Bernie Sanders told the Fox News audience at Monday’s town hall meeting in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Then turning and staring straight into the camera, Bernie added:

“Mr. President, tonight you have the opportunity to do something extraordinary: Sign that resolution. Saudi Arabia should not be determining the military or foreign policy of this country.”

Sanders was talking about a War Powers Act resolution that would have ended U.S. involvement in the five-year civil war in Yemen that has created one of the great humanitarian crises of our time, with thousands of dead children amidst an epidemic of cholera and a famine.

Supported by a united Democratic Party on the Hill, and an anti-interventionist faction of the GOP led by Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee of Utah, the War Powers resolution had passed both houses of Congress.

But 24 hours after Sanders urged him to sign it, Trump, heeding the hawks in his Cabinet and National Security Council, vetoed S.J.Res.7, calling it a “dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities.”

With sufficient Republican votes in both houses to sustain Trump’s veto, that should be the end of the matter.

It is not: Trump may have just ceded the peace issue in 2020 to the Democrats. If Sanders emerges as the nominee, we will have an election with a Democrat running on the “no-more-wars” theme Trump touted in 2016. And Trump will be left defending the bombing of Yemeni rebels and civilians by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia.

Does Trump really want to go into 2020 as a war party president?

Does he want to go into 2020 with Democrats denouncing “Trump’s endless wars” in the Middle East? Because that is where he is headed.

In 2008, John McCain, leading hawk in the Senate, was routed by a left-wing first-term senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, who had won his nomination by defeating the more hawkish Hillary Clinton, who had voted to authorize the war in Iraq.

In 2012, the Republican nominee Mitt Romney, who was far more hawkish than Obama on Russia, lost.

Yet, in 2016, Trump ran as a different kind of Republican, an opponent of the Iraq War and an anti-interventionist who wanted to get along with Russia’s Vladimir Putin and get out of these Middle East wars.

Looking closely at the front-running candidates for the Democratic nomination of 2020 — Joe Biden, Sanders, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker — not one appears to be as hawkish as Trump has become.

Trump pulled us out of the nuclear deal with Iran negotiated by Secretary of State John Kerry and reimposed severe sanctions.

He declared Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, to which Iran has responded by declaring U.S. Central Command a terrorist organization. Ominously, the IRGC and its trained Shiite militias in Iraq are in close proximity to U.S. troops.

Trump has recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, moved the U.S. Embassy there, closed the consulate that dealt with Palestinian affairs, cut off aid to the Palestinians, recognized Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights seized from Syria in 1967, and gone silent on Bibi Netanyahu’s threat to annex Jewish settlements on the West Bank.

Sanders, however, though he stands by Israel, is supporting a two-state solution and castigating the “right-wing” Netanyahu regime.

Trump has talked of pulling all U.S. troops out of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet the troops are still there.

Though Trump came into office promising to get along with the Russians, he sent Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine and announced a pullout from Ronald Reagan’s 1987 INF treaty that outlawed all land-based intermediate-range nuclear missiles.

When Putin provocatively sent 100 Russian troops to Caracas — ostensibly to repair the S-400 anti-aircraft and anti-missile system that was damaged in recent blackouts — Trump, drawing a red line, ordered the Russians to “get out.”

Biden is expected to announce next week. If the stands he takes on Russia, China, Israel and the Middle East are more hawkish than the rest of the field, he will be challenged by the left wing of his party, and by Sanders, who voted “no” on the Iraq War that Biden supported.

The center of gravity of U.S. politics is shifting toward the Trump position of 2016. And the anti-interventionist wing of the GOP is growing.

And when added to the anti-interventionist and anti-war wing of the Democratic Party on the Hill, together, they are able, as on the Yemen War Powers resolution, to produce a new bipartisan majority.

Prediction: By the primaries of 2020, foreign policy will be front and center, and the Democratic Party will have captured the “no-more-wars” political high ground that Candidate Donald Trump occupied in 2016.

A series of eight explosions rocked Catholic churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka as Christians began Easter Sunday celebrations, with over 200 killed and hundreds injured, media reported, citing police.

The blasts started at around 8:45am local time at St. Anthony’s Church in Colombo and St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, a Catholic-majority town outside of the capital. The Zion Church in Batticaloa on the eastern coast was also targeted. At around the same time, the Shangri-La, Cinnamon Grand and Kingsbury five-star hotels were also hit, police confirmed.

Two more explosions happened later in the day, targeting two more locations in Colombo. All attacks appear to have been coordinated.

At least 207 people were killed, Reuters reported, citing police. More than 450 were injured in the attacks.

Alleged footage of the aftermath, shared on social media, showed chaos and large-scale destruction inside at least one of the churches.

The former CIA Director admitted, ‘as an aside’ to the question asked, that the Intelligence agency he headed up before being appointed as the top US Diplomat had a motto “we lied, we cheated, we stole”…which, according to Pompeo, contained entire CIA training courses based on ‘lying, cheating and stealing.’

Pompeo finally speaks some truth.
