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 Sanders was NEVER a Democrat but a… Read more »

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.

Russia’s economy continues to outperform as gold takes center stage (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 118.

Alex Christoforou

Published

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris examine how US and EU sanctions have continued to provide a huge boost to Russia’s economy. Russia’s food sovereignty has practically been achieved, as the Russian central bank continues to buy gold and lower its exposure to western financial markets.

Via TASS…

Outside pressure in the form of sanctions has become an incentive to resolve various issues of Russia’s economy, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev stated in an interview with the Izvestiya daily.

He noted that through introducing sanctions against Russia, “the West aims to destabilize Russia’s economy and to create social and political tensions in society.”

“But during the difficult times, Russians have always stuck together and mobilized their resources in order to ensure the country’s sovereignty. This is what is happening now – the outside pressure has become an incentive to resolve many problems in Russia’s economy,” he said.

“Before the sanctions, it seemed that we would never be able to feed ourselves and that we are doomed to be dependent on Western import. However, right now, Russia’s food sovereignty in crucial sectors has practically been achieved, and in some areas, Russia has become the leading exporter,” Patrushev noted.

Those who apply the sanctions “can see that they (the sanctions – TASS) are ineffective and often achieve the opposite goal,” the Russian security chief concluded.

US Neocon Foreign Policy and the War Waged Against Serbia

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign.

Richard Galustian

Published

on

The ‘witch-hunt’ against President Trump over Russian collusion has officially ended, following the submission of the Mueller Report, enabling us to now focus on the real problems of America that effects the whole world.

In the hope of a waining of the Russophobia in America, let’s look at the US’s recent war history by starting with the 20th anniversary this month of the NATO war on Serbia in 1999 which amounted to almost 100 days of bombing of historic cities and infrastructure.

Firstly, these problems are, in the main caused by the Neocons, or Deep State, whatever you wish to call them, and the continuing promotion, by the US Military-Security Industrial Complex, of wars and regime change and secondly, Trump’s unreserved support for Israel, regardless of war crimes they may continue to commit against the Palestinians.

Incredibly after that one sided unjust and illegal war that NATO executed, NATO has the audacity to invite Serbia to join it! Something that will never happen. What do they smoke in DC, in the Pentagon and Brussels based NATO?

To compound these overall problems, the US Military and Israeli Defence Forces collaborate on these US regime change policies on all continents evidenced most recently by the arrival of crack Israeli troops last month in Brazil, prepared to support an attack potentially by Brazil and Columbia on Venezuela.

As, has now come to be expected, America pursues its Venezuelan regime change with full main stream media (MSM) cooperation, using well proven sophisticated propaganda techniques along with a variety of pretexts.

From Serbia to Iraq to Libya, where does it end? Observe that Trump is now seeking a ‘NATO alliance’ offering NATO status, to President Bolsonaro of Brazil to back the invasion of Venezuela.

So it is important to remember, as an example, that after a long war of economic and financial destabilization ended with the bombing of Serbia.

Serbia was previously a part of Yugoslavia, a country which had successfully evolved after 1945 to solve the old rivalries of the 19th and early 20th Century Balkan ethnic animosities which was, prior to the advent of power of President Tito, its past history.

The United Nations, instead of supporting, in effect, so called ‘humanitarian wars’ and ‘regime change wars’ by the US, using NATO, helped and relentlessly driven home by MSM outlets like CNN and FOX NEWS into people’s heads, must finally take a stand.

So too, Yugoslavia, once the envy of many in the world, given its then ‘non-aligned’ status under President Tito, was destroyed and broken up; ‘Balkanized’ in the early 1990s.

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign. That’s what we can expect in Venezuela next.

This ‘Balkanization’ strategy similarly applies to Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria et al. It serves US Neocon interests to dismember States in the world and create smaller more ‘manageable’ countries.

‘Regime change’ runs against the intent, the very words contained in the US Constitution. No one in MSM ever reminds us of that fact. Nevertheless America’s ambition to overthrow other States continues, which they arrogantly now make no secret of. The next States will probably be Nicaragua then Iran to name but two.

A very noteworthy most recent outrageous unilateral declaration was made by President Trump, not yet formally agreed by US institutions, ‘giving’ something he has no authority to give; Syrian territory, the Golan Heights to be precise, to Israel. Something that one day could trigger a full scale Arab-Israeli War.

This is of extreme importance yet no real outcry comes from world leaders; well not so far.

The main reason for that decision given by senior US Administration figures is that “God anointed Trump to save the Jews”.

Not forgetting Trump’s need (which we the people don’t understand exactly why) to support Prime Minister Netanyahu in his difficult upcoming elections in Israel – in part because both countries failed to ‘regime change’ Syria – but more importantly to help the ‘financial terrorists’ who formed a company jointly that has already started drilling for oil in the Golan Heights. You might like to know who owns such oil drilling company which should answer a plethora of questions in one go that you must be asking yourselves.

The shareholder’s names tells us everything; Dick Cheney; Baron Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch. The titular heads of neocons, bankers and media on the planet.

In ending there is no more evidence required for us, the people of the world, to rise up against the globalist dark forces wherever they exist, be it in Brussels, London, France or Washington. We must demand democratic elections or start revolutions, the latter has already begun in France in the form of ‘the yellow vests’. And Brexit, by definition, is a rejection by the British people of globalism and American Hegemony.

The pattern of US destabilization and destruction of States to loot them of their sovereign resources is the unseen history of the last 100 years, not taught in any university, anywhere in the West.

As far as Ukraine is concerned, its government was taken down by the CIA and replaced by an ultra fascist regime that has full backing from America. This is no secret. But the MSM simple don’t report it.

US led NATO is ‘the transnational war machine’ of the world, devouring almost all free countries wealth. It can extort to terrorize all into conformity to the global ‘carcinogenic’ US Neocon imperialistic strategy.

A total estimated 20m people around the world have died since the end of WW11 at the hands of US Forces. Think about that for a moment.

One of the most famous sayings attributed to America’s great President Abraham Lincoln is about deception: “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

‘Dark day for internet freedom’: EU approves controversial copyright reform

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

RT

Published

The European Parliament has voted to adopt the highly controversial Article 13 provision which would govern the production and distribution of content online under the auspices of increasing copyright protections.

Tuesday’s move will update the EU’s 20-year-old copyright rules and will govern everything from audiovisual content to memes, much to the dismay of many social media users who have already begun outpouring their grief online.

MEPs passed the legislation by 348 votes to 274 Tuesday. Opponents had hoped for last-minute amendments to be made but their efforts were in vain.

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

Article 13 or ‘The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market’ makes all platforms legally responsible for the content hosted and shared on their platforms.

The process of updating the bloc’s copyright laws began in the European Commission two years ago, ostensibly to protect Europe’s publishers, broadcasters and artists and guarantee fair compensation from big tech companies.

By essentially forcing companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter to pay artists and publishers for the reproduction of their work online, include in meme format, the EU is effectively clamping down on online memery.

The onus will now be on tech companies to clamp down on content-sharing on their platforms, which will likely ensure yet more draconian policing of speech and content.

EU member states now have two years to pass their own laws putting Article 13 into effect.

Tens of thousands marched in protest across Germany ahead of the vote, decrying what they viewed as severe online censorship.

Tech giant Google said that while the directive is “improved” it will still lead to legal uncertainty and will damage Europe’s creative and digital economies.

Critics have argued that the only way for Article 13 to be effectively enforced would be through the use of upload filters which automatically check content to see if it’s copyrighted or not, at least in theory. However, the exact mechanics of such a system have yet to be fully debated and the potential for abuse is immediately clear.
