Populist Bernie Sanders Is Running As A Democrat, Challenging Hillary Clinton

by Steven Rosenfeld, AlterNet

Bernie is about to make it official. He told the Associated Press on Wednesday that he will seek the Democratic Party’s nomination for president in 2016.

“I am running for president,” he said. “People should not underestimate me… I’ve run outside of the two-party system, defeating Democrats and Republicans, taking on big-money candidates and, you know, I think the message that has resonated in Vermont is a message that can resonate all over this country.”

Sanders will make a formal announcement on Thursday, making him the first official challenger for the 2016 Democratic nomination to former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who announced her candidacy on April 12.

(Just a quick note)

Bernie Sanders is taking a stand against Fast Track authority that the republicans and Vichy Dems want to give to President Obama so he can stuff a fascist set of “trade” agreements down the throats of the American people. The fight is on. No to Fast Track. No to the TTIP and No to the TPP (and CISA while we are on the subject of “no”)

Hillary Clinton Vs Bernie Sanders – On the TTIP

You want to think Hillary is a populist. Be my guest.

Hillary’s husband backed NAFTA with her approval and he signed it into law in ’94. Hillary’s campaign manager, John Podesta, is a lobbyist in DC and members of his former firm, the Podesta Group, not only helped WRITE the TTIP, but they proudly advertise on their website that they can help Big Business firms PROFIT off of it.

On the other hand…

Hillary Clinton Vs Bernie Sanders – Top Campaign Contributions Side by Side

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: I was quoted in an article on Common Dreams.

UPDATE: Wall Street billionaires say “Hey. We know she’s just pretending in order to fool the silly leftists so we aren’t worried about it. She will continue to serve us” and no… I’m not making that up.

Hillary’s Campaign Will Focus on Global Warming According to Her Campaign Chairman, a Major D.C. Lobbyist

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: John Podesta’s lobbying firm, the Podesta Group, helps international corporations position themselves to take full advantage of the TPP and the TTIP. One of their VPs, Jordan Valdes, claims to have been on Obama’s team to help write the TTIP. Now she sells her insider knowledge and connections on behalf of the Podesta Group to help companies get ready for the fascist takeover of America.

UPDATE: So I went to her campaign website, Ready for Hillary, so I could see for myself where Global Warming factored into her platform and guess what I found? No platform. Not a page or a word about what she stands for or what she intends to do as president. Nothing. You can sign up to volunteer for her campaign, you can sign up to be on the mailing list and receive requests for donations, you can buy all kinds of ridiculous crap and you can watch that stupid video they released yesterday. But there is nothing outlining her platform which makes me wonder if Podesta isn’t once again using Think Progress as a focus group to see how the Global Warming issue resonates with their audience before adding it to her platform.

Another of the clients of the Podesta Group is a little group called American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity

A hard-core career Clintonista and D.C. lobbyist for Big Business is now Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager and he kicked off his campaign efforts with a Tweet stating global warming is going to be a major issue in the campaign.

John Podesta was Chief of Staff for Bill in the latter days of his second term in office (from 1998 to 2001) and currently serves as Councilor to Barack Obama. Before that, he had a long, on-again/off-again career in D.C. taking full advantage of the revolving door that laughingly “separates” government and Big Business in America.

Hillary, the Neoliberal, Globalist, 1% Serving Maniac, Will Announce Today on a Populist Platform

by Scott Creighton

The phony progressives and fake left (a.k.a. the corporate, moderate, just-right-of-Reagan Vichy “left”) are in a breathless tizzy this morning. They are all waiting for Hillary (Killary) Clinton to announce she is running for the White House in 2016 via a social media video she and her staff intend to release today.

Choking back my vomit I am forced to report, incredibly, her platform with be one of a populist revolution for the 99%

You can all take comfort in the fact that this latest project of Killary’s, like all of those in the past and even those she ran as Secretary of State, is designed to make her money and is of course in service to the oligarchs of the new world order she and her husband have served for so very long.

Aside from emailgate and all the other indiscretions of her past (like selling her services as Secretary of State for cold hard cash), her current campaign is already knee-capping itself as if Tonya Harding was running the show which makes you wonder what this 2.5 billion dollar campaign of hers is really about.
