Feel the Bern

Submitted as a comment to another blog by Caleb Pilgrim – Blogmaster

@ Blogmaster:

Back to Trump, in the days preceding The South Carolina primary this coming Saturday, February 29th, and Super Tuesday, next Tuesday, March 3, 2020. …

Sometime ago, Dr. G.P in an overly zealous and passionate defense of POTUS, exclaimed “Trump! Trump! Trump! Trump!”. G.P was apparently seduced by and so enamored of the officious showman, erstwhile host of “The Apprentice” and “Celebrity Apprentice”.

We are now approaching a significant milestone in the Presidential elections. Former VP Biden (a/k/a “Sleepy Joe”); – Blogmaster described his performance thus far as being like “warmed over soup”; Trumpf’s campaign spies must also have noticed something “sleepy” about Joe – expects to win. He (Biden) describes it as “a firewall”, Super Tuesday. But, like all other candidates he is still far from the winning tape. Also, Biden lacks money, compared to Sanders, and billionaires Bloomberg and Steyer.

Moreover, as I have often noted, there are certain rumblings going on in the bowels of American body politic. The body politic is in ferment, if not disarray. Like your stomach, sometimes, after a heavy meal?

How else do we, objectively, explain the Obama two term Presidency in a still predominantly racist society? The backlash of the rather strange Trump Presidency? The phenomenon of angry white men”; (blacks apparently have nothing to be angry about)? The rise of the Me-too movement and its profound repercussions, e.g Cosby, Weinstein and many others rich and once powerful? Legalization of same sex marriages, in itself, a quiet revolution in values, and the so far relatively successful Presidential candidacy of the first openly gay, same sex married, South Bend Mayor, Pete Buttigieg? Legalization of recreational marijuana in almost a dozen states including all west coast states, Colorado, and some East coast states; legalization of medical marijuana in more than 30 states, etc, etc?

But, first, why should all this matter to the BU reader? Some nativist, insular, navel gazers dismiss such inquiries as irrelevant because they “vote in Barbados”. This is myopic, however. These navel gazers simply ignore the fact that there may well be several hundred thousand Barbadians and persons of Barbadian extraction (there are no realistic figures) presently living in North America). Are we simply to ignore the legitimate concerns and the welfare of such Bajans on the ground that “I don’t vote in America. I votes in Barbados”? “Fluck them”!

Secondly, for better or worse, in mere geopolitical terms, the American Empire still remains, for the time being at least, the world’s richest economy and the world’s most powerful military. We never live in a vacuum.

In the circumstances, it behooves us to think a little, even a little outside the box. In this vein, there has recently been talk of Former NY Governor Bloomberg offering former candidate Andrew Yang the VP slot should he become the Democratic nominee.

The gist of my argument here is that barring a successful repeat performance by the Democrats’ 2016 “superdelegates” (if Senator Bernie Sanders, does not win by a clear majority on the Convention’s first ballot), Sanders, a self-proclaimed “democratic socialist”, favoring a Scandinavian type democratic “socialism”, can not only win the Party’s Nomination this coming November. He can also win the Presidency in November.

Even if the “superdelegates”, or “supercrooks”, depending, can somehow derail and thwart Sanders, they will never be able to unify a highly fractured Democratic Party, far less form a National Unity Government. If they are seen as having robbed Sanders yet again, many of his supporters will predictably defect and may well guarantee Trump another term in office. The Democrats might even suffer a trifecta, losing the House, the Senate and the Presidency.

Despite Trump’s predictable name calling, Sanders can nevertheless defeat Trump. Trump has already called him a “Communist”. Strange that he (Sanders), a so/called “communist”, should be supported by millionaire businessmen like Tom and Jerry, Jeff Weaver, and on several issues by billionaire Tom Steyer, et al. These, after all, are hard headed businessmen, not Communists. With such support, the “Communist” smear rings hollow. It is simply reminiscent of Trump’s Attorney, Roy Cohn, Whittaker Chambers and Senator Joe McCarthy. Red baiting might appeal to some voters well over 60 years and who lived through the Cold War. However, beyond frightening the uninformed, it does not really resonate with the changing electorate. Sanders could go on to win the US Presidency.

Also, surprise, surprise, Sanders’ “democratic socialism” is no different from the democratic socialism in Norway, (don’t forget that Trump prefers new U.S immigrants “from Norway”). Call it “democratic socialism”, “Scandinavian democracy”, (Sweden, Denmark, Finland), whatever. The problem here is to educate the electorate, admittedly a sometimes formidable task.

But, should Senator Sanders choose a younger, former Georgia Gubernatorial Candidate, Stacey Abrams, a black, female, Yale trained lawyer and former Minority Leader in the Georgia Senate, with very substantial political, business, industry and community experience, a Sanders-Abrams ticket could win, absent interference by the “super-delegates”.

A Sanders-Abrams ticket wins the black vote throughout most of the United States. (As an aside, a female Black Vice Presidential candidate will also be a first. It would add more energy and excitement to Sanders’ already highly motivated supporters; it would also break the mould and position Abrams to run for the Presidency the next time around, the first black female since Shirley Chisholm of Barbadian lineage). Relatively few black voters, except perhaps for some black recidivist legatees of the Confederacy, a specie of mentally defective Clarence Thomas, “Blacks for Trump”; “Woke”; will decline to support such a ticket.

Abrams is also almost certain to demolish Pence in the Vice Presidential Debates.

As to immigration, Sanders’ promise of a moratorium on all deportations within the first 100 days of his Administration, guarantees support among the Latino and immigrant communities in the USA. Hence, his very substantial support among Latinos in the recent Nevada caucus.

Further, Sanders’ promise of a minimum wage of $15 resonates with the poor and the working class. Hence, his support among blue collar workers and trade unions.

Time and space do not allow for a detailed discussion of ever increasing and extreme inequality in the U.S; or examination of proposals such as “Medicare for all”; student loan forgiveness and free college tuition; climate change – “a Chinese hoax” per Trump; (but just ask Dr. Leonard Nurse his opinion on climate change, as a more capable expert witness); the economic and social impact of the corona pandemic on the much vaunted Trump economic “successes”. ….

Notwithstanding predictably ritual denials, we should also not underestimate the role and impact of the U.S Intelligence Community (IC) or some disaffected agents in re-paying Trump’s generosity in dissing the 17 Intelligence Agencies, throughout his Presidency. Revenge, they say, is a dish best served cold.

Also, this will be the first election in which tens of billions ($$$$$) will have been spent by the candidates. On the Democratic side, we can expect that Bloomberg himself may spend a few billions if per chance he is the nominee. Steyer himself may also contribute a few billion. Jeff Bezos of Amazon, an avid Trump fan, should also be most comfortable in putting in a few billion to anyone opposing Trump. George Soros should also be good for a few billion. How easy it is to spend Other People’s’ Money (“OPM”)?

To the Trump Choir, I therefore say – even though it is still early, “come over to Damascus”! We would never want you to be the Patron Saint of Lost Causes.

Finally, don’t forget that you first heard it (this murky analysis and prediction), here on BU. Uh gone!

    He makes his vacuous point about UK as an island and again as @Donna says he is just talking a bunch of cow dung: fresh and fertile with more BS within!

    1.To suggest that POTUS has mounted the most effective leadership role re Coronavirus is just Goebblesque BS… It takes a valid point (re travel restrictions) misrepresents it’s factual reality and then uses it to cover numerous other missteps.

    POTUS announced a common sense policy when on travel restrictions … He did NOT impose a TRAVEL BAN.

    So let’s be clear. The restrictions were on non US nationals coming from China… but as is reported flights were still moving US businessfolks and others, flight crews and cargo .

    The simple point is that this leader has used his bully pulpit to minimize a serious issue, he has second guessed the expert advice and publicly made assurances that were invalid.

    He calls the virus threat an attempt to destabilize HIS presidency as if Italy or China or Europe are untouched.

    His real actions and not the speechifying have been any thing but common sense !

    YOU are the one who keeps harping on expertise and thinking anyone who is not academically qualified in a subject should not even offer an opinion. I happen to think that intelligent people can read and figure some stuff out for themselves. if that were not so the qualified doctor in Barbados would have put me through an unnecessary operation and removed a perfectly healthy body part which is still healthy ten years after the fact. I listened to her diagnosis, read the results of the test, filled with jargon though they were, did some research online and sought a second opinion to confirm my theory that she was looking to cut me open purely for financial gain. And the second opinion confirmed it.

    She, like you, thought that I, a “mere mortal” would be incapable of understanding anything because I do not have the medical diploma on the wall. Her arrogance lost her many patients because I spread the word far and wide.

    So…. what is John’s area of expertise? Is he an expert on EVERYTHING? Does he alone have a well-functioning brain that allows him to speak on everything? Or is he the only one allowed to efflux from his SHELVES OF HOUSTON????

    Doc u are so transparently ridiculous that it is indeed hilarious to read your animus driven folly.

    I speak as a citizen responding to a comment about leadership of a national crisis situation … I do not have to expound from any position of expert medical knowledge as I am NOT redirecting or questioning data from any expert.

    Why are u so ridiculouly and obviously making stupid personal attacks… SMH.

    The POTUS has NOT led this effort purposefully and with clear direction.

    He downplayed the threat, he cast blame to political rivals, he attacked the Federal reserve, he railed against state Governors who were more direct about the dangers of the pandemic… He even refused initially to call the national crisis a pandemic.

    You can shill for the man all u want… But the facts can’t be twisted to suit your folly.

    When this man was saying “oh the flu kills more people every year than this virus” or “this will pass as the hot weather arrives” the nation was getting sicker.

    Sports leaders were shutting down their big money extravaganzas; hospitals were preparing for an onslaught; the Gov of NY and Gov Inslee of Washington State were lambasted by this guy simply for asking him to be more direct and deal with the reality and science of the issue and stop his minimalist approach.

    So where are we now: has he not had to go full bore national emergency.

    I don’t criticize the man simply because he acts the fool as all pols do that at times… but because he acts the self serving fool too damn often.

    When he talks BS about this is the most tremendous response of all time and stuff like that which is absolutely wrong it just gnaws at the noggin… particularly when his experts are fighting with him to get basic things done.

    But of course he knows best.

    Bro doc carry on smartly… Yours is too laughable sometimes to be taken too seriously.

    I do not profess to be anything other than a biblical illiterate and a non-scientist. But, consider the following (anecdotal).

    I recently discussed with a young Barbadian, a person of Pentecostal faith. The young Baje ran an interesting argument by me.

    The argument was that, God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He is not only a God of Love, but he is also a God of Justice. He sees and recognizes Evil, wherever and whenever.

    He saw that POTUS was able to dodge Mueller, successfully. He also escaped conviction in his Impeachment Trial before the Senate, despite his being convicted by the Democratic majority in the House. Like Houdini . …

    God saw all this, including the behavior of a man some consider a maniacal, ungodly tyrant. He then visited the corona virus on the US under the tyrant, threatening to destroy his much vaunted economic success(es) and his claims for a stable, undisputed genius. (Remember he knows more than the generals, the economists, the scientists, et al).

    If the economy falters seriously because of the corona pandemic, this derails Trump’s re-election prospects (John, The Mad hatter claims a “third term” for POTUS, “the orange, marmalade monster” as described by some).

    God thus intervened in human affairs to rescue us from and punish the ungodly. What say you of this fundamentalist approach? To my little mind, it seemed like reducing God to the status of a policeman arresting a crook (a sort of deus ex )

    Thus, like Nebuchadnezzar… God punishes another ungodly tyrant … and the end???

    We are sure you can find an ‘Icarus opposite number’ in your Jewish equivalent of tall tales.

    The philosophically burning question for you- dear doctor GP, DD- is whether your Yahweh concocted, created and distributed this viral plague dubbed Covid-19. as a global plaque of a sign of human containment and, like the story behind Icarus, to put mankind in his ‘common’ place.

    Did your omniscient omnipotent Yahweh do a Zeus-like retaliation and inflicted on his morally-weak subjects this ‘Covid curse for their human transgressions like electing two kings of buffoonery to rule the so-called free world before the Great Rapture?
