“We were told that Russia, maybe other countries, are going to get involved in this campaign.”

Russia, at least to those who trust US and other 'western' nation's intelligence agencies and not the Kremlin's nor Bannon and other global far rightists, 'meddled' in the 2016 election to help Trump. US intelligence agencies have reported they continue to do so.

Says a lot about Trump supporters that 'foreign involvement' is fine by them, especially when they support Trump and ilk. They're willing to compromise US sovereignty to ensure their president (impeached) can continue to use the White House as a base from which to increase his and his family's fortune. While paying off debts to foreign 'financiers'.

said he’s backing Sanders because... We need somebody in the White House who has been on the right side of history for their entire career, somebody who stands with the working class, and will make things more fair for everybody.

Nielsen said.

Very ironic since Bernie's been on the side of the Soviets and Castro his entire career. I don't Sanders is going to do well with the Latino vote down in Miami. Also, socialism works so well for the working-class that they've all fled every country where it's ever been implemented. No one ever emigrates to a socialist country. You'd expect such stupidity from a 20 something, but a 40 something? Sheesh!

“Nevada represents an opportunity for these candidates to demonstrate their appeal to a larger swath of our country,”

This 'quiz' provides a look at which candidate's stated positions are closest to yours. Plus opportunities for plot-spotters to uncover nefarious aims.

@mrnoiladlNo one ever emigrates to a socialist country.

That doesn't square with the alt right's claims immigrants and refugees are coming to the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, etc. because of their 'socialism', e.g. the 'handouts' they can get there. But then I know the alt right uses 'socialism' as a pejorative without understanding what it means. Here's a link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialism

Please name one nation that doesn't have some form of 'socialism'. Please name one nation that has what's reputed to be its opposite, 'free market capitalism'. ROFL & SMH

Russia, at least to those who trust US and other 'western' nation's intelligence agencies and not the Kremlin's nor Bannon and other global far rightists,

Bannon? What? Dear lord......

'meddled' in the 2016 election to help Trump. US intelligence agencies have reported they continue to do so.

They also reported that Trump was in a hotel room where Obama and Michelle stayed in where Trump was having wild orgy sex with 2-3 women, that proved to be a huge hoax.

Says a lot about Trump supporters that 'foreign involvement' is fine by them, especially when they support Trump and ilk.

So that the Russians are helping Sanders doesn’t bother you, right? Or when the Dems bought a salacious and unverifiable dossier from Christopher Steele (a foreigner and a spy) that meddling didn’t alarm you? Says a lot about liberal hypocrisy.

They're willing to compromise US sovereignty to ensure their president (impeached) can continue to use the White House as a base from which to increase his and his family's fortune. While paying off debts to foreign 'financiers'.

And your verifiable proof of that is.....

Problem is that only Bernie and Biden will likely get more than 15%. Dems won Nevada in 2016 and to win it in 2020 someone would need to get better than 15% in their own primary.

The re-emerging of james carville makes me suspicious. He is on tv destroying Bernie about his Russian assistance in the election.

Pushing that DNC narrative. I wish Dems could just have a DNC interference free election like the RNC did. Your people want Bernie, then it should be Bernie.

@bas4fSo that the Russians are helping Sanders doesn’t bother you, right?

Any foreign 'meddling' in sovereign nation's affairs bothers me, and so of course any foreign 'meddling' in US affairs of any kind bothers me, regardless which candidate or policy they're supporting. Does Russia's 'meddling' to help Trump bother you? Or do you continue to believe the Kremlin's accounts.

Yeah at least Bernie got a defensive review. Not AOC and the “squad” being spied on under falsely obtained FISA warrants right now.

but that’s ok if the intelligence agencies claim Russia is helping your campaign, right? Russia is helping Bernie, it’s confirmed. So maybe let’s look into a FISA on some of them like totally innocent Carter Page got.

Carville has. russia is helping Bernie not to help him, but because he is the weakest. so no one vote for him, he’s tainted. According to the Clinton guy anyway.

myself, Trump easily beats any of these clowns. The Bloomberg is our savior plan failed spectacularly.

I am more concerned about the DNC meddling in their own election than I am Russia meddling.

Russia can’t change any votes. The DNC can. Russia can’t give the nomination to someone who lost the election. The DNC can at a “brokered” convention.

Hilarious that T.rumpophiles still insist that Donny’s campaign was illegal led spied upon

By a foreign power, so then why the hypocrisy about Russia, spying is spying, so it should be perfectly legal by your accounts, which means gathering info on the Biden’s was all legal....makes sense to me.

No, western intelligence agencies did not report this. Let’s not start pushing falsehoods before 9:30, please.

They did. and the Dems ran with it, but got debunked as we all knew it would.

It bothers us more than the Russians helping Donny bothers you.

I have been a registered Democrat since Bill Clinton. I have a right to vote in the Dem primary. I also have the right to vote for trump when the Dem nominee is garbage. or was helped by Russia or the DNC unfairly over who should have been the nominee.

why you targeting me for voter suppression? That’s wrong, isn’t it? #Allvotesmatter

The problem with the liberal complaints is that Bernie isn’t the weakest candidate. He just keeps winning by getting the most votes. So that makes him the strongest, validated by our own voters

only way Dems can stop him is by linking him to Putin. Won’t work, just helps Trump to show how dishonest Dems are.,

Neither was Carter Page. Never even indicted much less convicted. Just an entry point to get all Trump campaign communications.

Even having all the comms for over a year still couldn’t indict him or prove Russian collusion.

No. she’s not suspected of colluding with a foreign government. Why do you have such a difficult time with facts and logic?

Lets see. The senile incoherent bumbling one (Biden) tells us he wants to raise the corporate tax rate, all the while providing money for entrepreneurs, and investing in "rail" (which would most likely be provided by the Japanese) and green energy, what that green energy is remains a mystery as his solar investment seems to have flopped according to repub? dem? bloomberg. as there hasnt been any fuel yet discovered, that outperforms the energy dense fossil fuels the loons promise to replace, I find that to be more magical thinking and false hope . crazy Bern wants to replace fracking and the jobs that come with it, with ??? The queen loon warren rambles on about how people of color are suffering from dirty air and water and her trillion dollar health plan is the best option, and pay for it by taxing the wealthy, but never mentioning that the wealthy will just leave her and her nutjob plan and go elsewhere. Mayor pete was the sharpest one, but he has no experience.

and of course the fall back, when the loons start attacking each other is, "we must defeat the worst president in history"

what a bunch of losers.

Deferral is one of the main features of the worldwide tax system that allows U.S. multinational companies to delay paying taxes on foreign profits. Under U.S. tax law, companies are not required to pay U.S. tax on their foreign subsidiaries’ profits for many years, even indefinitely until the earnings are returned to U.S. Therefore, it was one of the main reasons that U.S. corporations paid low taxes, even though the corporate tax rate in the U.S. was one of the highest rates (35%) in the world. Although, since January 1, 2018 the corporate tax rate has been changed to a flat 21%.

Lets see what happens when one of the loons gets it changed back to 25% or higher...more will just defer to other countries, all the while corrupt lobbyist lobbying for tax free treaties for foreign companies in the US.

I think what the dem losers are betting on is their message of "hope" and freebies for the minorities, young educated but inexperienced, and poor, a bit sinister if you think about it, then once they are on the hook will get a large share of votes from that. every one of them has the same message of trillion dollar health care, green magical thinking energy, reversal of all Trump job creations, and other loon messages.

I agree. Very sinister. Under the dems model, minorites will be helpless junkies strung out on government social programs for eternity. They'll never come with the message that minorities can be self-sufficient--that messes up their whole power scheme. It use to be that African Americans were the victims of oppression. They're the only ones who suffered slavery in America. But now we have black and brown bodies and pocs and intersectionality. It's all jammed under one umbrella. It'll never stop. It keeps expanding like the universe. Dems will beat the same drum every four years. They'll never tell minorities they can help themselves.

They already called Bernie the winner with only 4% of results in. Almost like “nothing to see here”

Bingo! The Democrats could care less, the only thing they care about and what they absolutely need and can’t do without is getting the minority vote, that’s the key to Democrat win, once they’ve secured that, nothing ever happens.

The interesting part is that the dems always leave out the mechanics of it all; how will it be paid for? well, the go to reply is always duh! tax the wealthy! but the wealthy got rich by avoiding taxes, so how will that work? its understood that pharma is ripping people off, but how does a socialist medical system remedy that? where will the R&D come from to develop new drugs, where is the new incentive?

National debt has increased under Trump at the same rate has under Obama.

Trump is the first president to take the debt above the $20 trillion mark and if he wins a second term will see it pass the $30 trillion mark.

Trump’s idea of fiscal responsibility is to borrow money, not pay anyone and then declare bankruptcy.

Debt reduction no longer seems the interest of any president.

The interesting part is that the dems always leave out the mechanics of it all; how will it be paid for?

Adding it to the debt of course.

That said, if you actually take the time to read Bernie's platform he doesn't leave out the mechanics of it at all, contrary to your claim that once again proves you can't bother to fact check yourself.

Remember Trump's campaign claims on health care? It will be better, cheaper, and cover more people. Mechanics: zero. Which was what it turned out to be when he got elected, a big nothingburger. Then even Trump's own team wouldn't even support him on scrapping Obamacare! (which just reached it's highest popularity level ever). Let's recall that name, that the Republicans tried to give as a pejorative: OBAMAcare. The people love it, just like they loved Obama. Something Trump will never know.

They have actually had a reduction in their pension over the years. Agreed, the military industrial complex is a form of socialism that needs consideration for serious reform, to start with the enormous of amount of treasury spent on "support" for dependents and retirees, instead of R&D for game changer weapon platforms. this is one of the repubs darlings, and im not a fan of it.
