What a hatchet job by the Warren camp on Bernie...very disappointing. She is still my second choice though but it reveals a lot about her campaign (not necessarily her).
It's easy to take the high ground and be civil when you are in the lead but now that Warren has fallen in the polls she allows her "surrogates" to feed this nonsense to the press.
No one believes it and it looks like a desperate attempt.

Warren is saying she said something along those lines...

I have a hard time believing Bernie bluntly said a woman can't win the Presidency or win in 2020.

I can believe that he might of said some inarticulate **** that left that impression on Warren.

I mean Warren got some snakeish tendancies and Bernie got some sucka tendancies, so it really is a toss up at this point on who being more truthful. Plus we don't know the context of Bernie's words.

Either way, they should probably just dead it. Doesn't help either of them to go down this path.

I was going to say that you summed it up perfectly and it could not be said any better....


but then I read Comrade Noskey's words! He said it even better:


Bernard v Elizabeth. Only one winner here: DONALD JENIUS JESUS TRUMP. 4 MORE DECADES, COMRADES!

Man...watching the “great divide” bs on PBS Frontline....and it’s still ridiculous to me how the media continues to normalize and “both sides” bad faith actors in the Republican Party...who clearly and unapologetically are the drivers for “division”.

Normalizing Steve Brannon and characters like that....it’s wild.

The American media is too driven by profit, and too cowardly to tell the truth.

That America only has one reasonably functioning party in America that is remotely interest in helping people and not animated by some of the worst forces in America (sexism, racist, xenophobia, etc.)

The both sides nonsense will be the death of us.

Academics are screaming at us that it is the Republicans ****ing things up and the media ignores these warning and books these right wing ghouls on their shows to continuously gaslight people.

Warren’s campaign has to know this comes off looking desperate af given the timing and that the actual conversation happened in 2018.

Like they can’t be that dense, right?

I don't know what the hell they were thinking with this.

Unless you go solid evidence Bernie went full buffoon, why even instigate this fiasco.

But I think they were salty over Bernie's people giving volunteers a script to attack Warren. Bernie said it was not his decision it was an employee. So one side engages in buffoonery, and the other side raises them.

Bernie and Warren need to dead this.

Interesting.

Well, given he's on record saying the opposite a few times, I don't see how this works in her favor at all. But who knows 🤷🏾‍♂️

I wanna be clear, too. I've got major love for you and the NT fam. If I didn't I wouldn't be in here. This is the only message board I'm a part of. I have a Facebook that I rarely ever use, and I don't have any other social media. This is it for me as far as online discussion, and I appreciate the discourse and insights I get from my brethren in here, even when we don't see exactly eye-to-eye.

If you or anyone else ever in STL, let me know and we can grab some drinks and kick it :smokin
This was earlier today but I’d like to take this moment to show my appreciation as well.

I’m very grateful that my active participation in this thread is not only accepted but welcomed.

I can understand why some Americans could feel some type of way about it, specifically when it comes criticism. As far as I can recall though, there were really only 2 formerly regular posters who insisted that I ‘mind my business’ and stay out of this thread. Those were Ninja and Rico x Hood. I never really saw those attacks as a big deal.
To his credit, Rico gradually reversed his view and eventually posted that he had grown to enjoy my “cordial” discussions with him.
There was a third individual who only rarely posted here but occasionally made remarks made it clear His username contained “Rhino” and possibly also “green” if I recall correctly. I vaguely recall posts along the lines of ‘this should come from an American’, as well as a negative response to my argument that anyone is welcome to roast my country.

I think by now it’s abundantly clear to everyone which topics are of the highest interest to me. Investigations, legal issues, national security and foreign policy.

While reading the latest news developments, I try to regularly include things that aren’t necessarily interesting or relevant to me personally but likely to be useful for y’all.

Some of my close friends share my interest in politics but it revolves entirely around just domestic politics. In all honesty I’d be lying if I said US affairs aren’t a lot more interesting and intriguing than domestic affairs.

I never anticipated becoming such a political junkie but my interest in such topics dates back to my choice in highschool to take behavioral and cultural sciences classes as my ‘subject’ (kind of like a major)
Additionally, I have built up many good personal and business relationships. I can also thank Americans and NT for helping me bounce back from a dire financial situation when I got a ~€4400 hospital bill for my partial lung removal.

In a such a relatively short time, I have learned a ton of new information on various topics and further increased my English vocabulary. My memory plays a big role in this. I can’t remember song lyrics whatsoever, only random bits and pieces, but on the other hand I know the Mueller report like the back of my hand.

In short, a big thank you to all of the NT fam.


Edit January 14: Sheesh you can tell it was late when I posted this. I fixed a multitude of spelling and grammatical errors.

One thing is for certain with this Warren/Sanders thing: Bernie Bros haven't learned a single lesson from 2016. Going scorched earth on every candidate that dare utter a negative word about their perfect god-like figure Bernie. Elizabeth Warren is easily the closest candidate to Bernie ideologically, and now, she might as well be Laura Ingraham.

This is a non-story. But I can already see Bros purity voting us right into another term.

I remember I was in here back in '15, going about my rounds analyzing Marcobot and Sleepy Carson, when I noticed Baby Colombia in the corner of the thread. He had these big pointy ears and these giant eyes, just staring back with childlike innocence. He was barely a foot tall at the time.

Coal Gang leadership was reluctant at the time -- he was a foreigner, after all! -- but we ended up taking him in. What started as a charity case quickly turned into the biggest investment in our history. He had the ability to stave off libbies with just his mind, like he was using some powerful force that was equal but opposite to innuendo and hyperbole. Soon it became clear that he was the most powerful of us all. His ability to parse the Mueller report in a matter of hours and explain concisely how it was all just a witch hunt.... His investigations into Trump's finances that proved once and for all that Donald Trump is an economic Jenius.... His ability to buy and sell online accounts -- I still am indebted to Belgium Belgium for snagging me that ever-elusive email address whywesteppin3140124948@hotmail.com for only $700 :wow:

Long story short, it's good having you around. Can't say the same about your socialist neighbors in Europe though....
