Well, I don't find it amusing.......................they are really sellouts!

 

This movie predicted it all....................watch it if you haven't already..........................but understand the message.

The Report

 

 

hardly the thriller it aspires to be, but works admirably as a fairly dry docudrama.

 

interesting fact: lead actor Adam Driver served in the marine corps for a couple of years after enlisting in the wake of 9/11.

Best Trump put down for a while.

 

Responding to Trump raving on about Parasite winning best movie at the Oscars the distributor tweeted "Figures, he can't read." (The movie is sub-titled.)

 

Cheers

WHAT A JOKE !

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-05/bloomberg-quits-the-2020-presidential-race-endorses-biden/12027056

So Bloomberg throws over 500 million dollars away and puts his name behind Sleepy Joe. That is such a joke. I wonder how all those on food stamps feel about that disgusting waste of money.

 

Warren is trying to find reasons and ways to stay relevant after not having one a single State .

 

And Sanders probably had the best support from a group of fairly privileged people who've likely never ever lived in a country that does socialism/communism as it's rule of law ... but want it any way. And given the choice of their other candidates, I can see why it might be tempting to fight against them...

WHAT A JOKE !

...His money to waste if he sees fit to do so...

 

Warren is on the ropes, Biden is getting all the backing  so now it is at least down to just him and Sanders. The next few States should give clarity on that.

Warren has no path to victory. That she's still hanging around, not dropped out and endorsing Sanders, shows that her purpose is to ensure his loss.  Given her then-mystifying decision to back Hillary last time*, it seems apparent to me that she never has been as liberal as she seems in speeches.

 

*Also note how many of the Dem candidates were all "most votes should win" until it wasn't them - then it was "let the system work". Including her.

I'm going to assume a Freudian slip ?   🙂

 

Biden has always been the person Trump least wanted to face from the moment he declared himself, his presence was what led to the impeachment trial after all.

 

Now it becomes a case really of how stubborn Bernie wants to be. He's not really a Democrat in the first place, but he has little to no chance as an independent, just not the way the U.S. votes.

 

With the backing Biden now has it would be for the best for everyone if Bernie stepped aside but he wont , so it will likely come down to the Electoral College. Biden did not do at all badly in that regard in California, although I did think he might have done better but the bigger surprise was Texas. Both those state have a lot of delegates.

 

However the race is still only about or a little less than half run with a lot of delegates still to be won.

 

The American electoral process nonetheless even after years of American friends telling me still completely bemuses me. I'm somewhat convinced it is not exactly rocket science to manipulate it even without foreign interference.

 

Speaking of which, that could shape up to being an interesting sideshow. Russia rather obviously likes Trump in power, China does not. I wonder which might have the more adept cyber squads ?

 

I'm hoping that the implications and revelations of 2016 will lead to there being very stringent efforts to defray any foreign intervention but its a very fast moving target. Already there is evidence of AI bots meddling on social media, with considerable evidence that Russia is involved.

 

The frontline in that regard will be U.S. intelligence services, I'm reasonably sure they will defend without fear or favor but Trump has made no friends there the past three plus years.

 

Cheers

 

Edit: Freudian I was referring to Jerusalem.

 

Warren endorsing Sanders would be mean-spirited to say the least, to both of the last men left standing.

 

Compared to Australian politics Sanders probably is not very far left at all but in America he is very wide of the mark.

 

The primary goal, very simply has to be to get Trump out of the White House, candidates have been saying it for days now, if not weeks. It would be very divisive to put any wind at all into Sanders' sails because that only weakens the Democrats position and leave it as a race they could again lose rather than Trump actually win.

 

It's more than unfortunate that the best that the Dems can put up in an elder statesman but that is the best hope on offer.

 

My current best guess we will be seeing to men in their 70s fighting it out which is not exactly fantastic news, not just for the U.S. but for the broader world also.

 

Nonetheless I really do wonder if the world can survive another 4 years of Trump. Actually if he gets re-elected he likely will attempt to seize enduring power, he's already hinted at it. It is the fascist way, one Hitler used very effectively.

 

Cheers

No they just didn't want a woman or a homosexual or a socialist to be a Democratic contender for the President. Hitlery was never going to win in 2016. She just believed she would, like Bloomberg believed he could buy his way in.

Biden has a chance, in fact he'd probably beat Trump.

Sanders would probably give Trump another win with bigger majority.

Yes, that's the point.

 

A division in the Democrats leaves the door open for Trump to win because the Democrats lose again rather than his winning.

 

Get all the support behind Biden, including Bloomberg's dollars which he seems happy to donate and Trump is toast.

 

Have Bernie hang around and it is a very different ball game.

 

I feel bad for him, I really do, he is earnest, he obviously believes his platform is the best but America is just not going to buy it in enough numbers to beat Trump.

 

Cheers

You need to listen to more lefties: they will not vote for Biden. They will stay home en masse if he is the candidate. It will be a repeat of 2016, only with Biden not the Bitchqueen.

 

Added to which, Biden will not beat Trump according to national polls, even with 100% Dem backing. Whereas Sanders beats him by a significant margin in almost every state.

 

The only hope the Dems have of winning this one is to back Sanders. So... 4 more years, then.

Aaand so saying, Warren drops out.  No word yet on if/who she's endorsing.

It really depends what polls you look at, and how much Dems even of a left persuasion want to allow Trump back.

 

The stats I see say very different but you never know until election day.

This is very true.  Those I've seen come from many sources, but those via Hill TV and David Packman on YouTube seem to be most balanced.  Both of those shows regularly piss off both sides of the political divide, which is usually a good sign, and Hill TV actually has a host on either side as well just in case.

 

What I'm seeing from leftist commentary atm seems to indicate that the lefties would rather let Trump burn the country down for another 4 years than have anyone put things back to how they were at any period since Reagan took office.

One of the problems Biden has had is his running thus far has had more to do with removing Trump than actually laying out any policies of his own in great detail. It's being assumed that as Obama's former VP he will continue in the Obama mold. There is not a lot to say that wont be the case but now that the lines are clearly draw he needs to be stating his intentions in a much clearer manner.

 

When his platform clearly defines itself, which it must, then we'll see what the left really think of him.

 

They say you cannot teach an old dog new tricks but Biden has spent so long in the shadow of others that he hasn't been able to have a clear self-identity until now.

 

Frankly I don't really take anywhere near as much notice of polls as I used to, they got it very wrong in 2016, they are probably getting it wrong again now.

 

Personal belief: Not only can America not endure another four years of Trump I don't think the world in terms of relations with the so-called leader of the free can either.

 

Cheers

Actually I've watched a few of his speeches, he does ok, certainly does not go rambling on endorsing Tex-Mex restaurants or telling the Academy what the best movie of the year should be like Donald Demented.

 

What he does need is to focus on his intentions should he win the Presidency, now the field has thinned he needs to do that, until now he has been involved in in-fighting.

Anything but really, I'd far rather a younger, dynamic, and yes somewhat less controversial candidate than Pete, but, you take what there is to hand - it seems the Democratic party is currently bereft of such individuals of credibility.

 

I would not even care if a real-life rather than faux Republican were to take Trump on in the Primaries but the true colors of the party seem to have been revealed by their craven obsequience to The Party of Trump.

 

They are going to regret that - if Trump does win and puts the jackboot in they may not get another chance to run against him until he dies.

 

You think I'm being extreme?

 

This past week I heard Tim Costello speak at Writers Week Adelaide, he has just come back from the U.S. and his view was that if something does not change in the U.S. it will be a fascist State within Trump's still being contested second term.

 

His evidence for that?

 

Just compare the way Trump and his party are behaving and contrast it to the rise of Fascism in Germany in the 30s.

 

It is genuinely scary, he has to be stopped, hopefully in a civilised manner, but don't count on it, the degree of division he is creating in America is pointing straight to a Civil War.

 

Cheers
