The first of three Democratic presidential debates was held Tuesday night in Las Vegas and Bernie Sanders was the clear winner. While most of the establishment media predictably rushed to bolster their Hillary Clinton puppet, even some oligarchy mouthpieces, like the Washington Post and Chicago Tribune, were forced to admit the obvious. Sanders had won.
One look at social media and online polling shows Bernie was clearly victorious. He took 60% in the Drudge Poll, 74% in a Time magazine poll, 72% in a Slate.com poll, 79% in a Fox News poll, 68% in a US Uncut poll and 85% in CNN’s own poll, which was quickly removed from their website.
Despite their phony nod to democracy, the well-paid editors at CNN, Slate and Time all said Hillary won.
According to US News & World Report, Sanders was by far the most talked about candidate on Facebook, with Hillary trailing a distant second. A US News Facebook poll showed 82% thought Sanders won.
Sanders picked up almost twice as many new followers on Twitter following the debate, and was mentioned far more times than Hillary. Of those mentions 69% of the tweets were positive for Sanders. Only 56% of the Clinton tweets were positive. Sanders won in every single focus group organized by the establishment media and raised a fresh $1.4 million on the heels of the debate.
While Clinton and the other candidates veered left to try and steal the Bernie fire, Sanders coolly answered the inevitable question about what being a democratic socialist means without wavering or equivocation.
Meanwhile, Martin O’Malley hammered Clinton on her vote for the Iraq War, her many flip-flops on issues including the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement and the Keystone Pipeline, and the fact that her husband was the one who repealed the crucial Glass-Steagal Act, which had separated deposit banks from speculative banks since the Great Depression. It’s repeal paved the way to creating the greatest disparity of wealth in a century, while causing the 2008 financial collapse.
O’Malley’s tenacity left Bernie able to remain above the fray, even extending an olive branch to Clinton regarding the Benghazi hearings. Sanders used the words “revolution” and “oligarchy”, two words not uttered in a Presidential debate in a very long time.
Sanders railed against the campaign finance Super PAC debauchery, while raising $26 million last quarter from 650,000 individual contributors for an average of $30 per donor. At one point Jim Webb pointed out that Sanders was the lone vote (99-1) against the Patriot Act. And Sanders held his ground on the 2nd Amendment, as the others candidates rushed to embrace gun control – a fact that makes Sanders far more electable than the others in a general election.
If Clinton survives the Libya hearings this week, she will negate the need for elites to march out Joe Biden. And with the Republican field looking weak and frayed, she will become the clear choice of the elite.
One look at who has given her money during this election cycle should suffice. Her top five largest donors in order are Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, DLA Piper, JP Morgan Chase and Morgan Stanley. Make no mistake, Hillary is the banker’s choice.
Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, is one of us. His platform represents a revolutionary change from the status quo and we should all get behind him. This is the best chance we’ve had to peacefully overthrow the oligarchy that I have seen in my lifetime.
The biggest challenge is getting him through the primary. If he can beat the Illuminati Queen Hillary, he can easily manage the clowns on the right side of the aisle and the wrong side of history.
Republicans should switch over and vote for Bernie in the Democratic primary in states that allow this. Democrats should push their local, district and state parties to endorse Bernie now.
The banker’s media arm will continue to lie about Hillary’s support, while doing all they can to diminish the Sanders phenomenon. We all need to join this revolution. It may be our last chance before things get ugly.
