Panicked Democrat establishment ‘declaring war’ on Bernie Sanders to prevent him from getting prez nomination

The fear and loathing for Sanders on the Left is no different than it is for Trump

By Tank Murdoch

(TNS) In recent weeks we have seen the Democratic establishment dramatically step up their attacks on Marxist Sen. Bernie Sanders as he continues to rise in the polls and excite the far-Left faction of the party.

Two-time failed presidential contender Hillary Clinton unloaded on Sanders in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter published earlier this month with correspondent Lacey Rose, who asked about comments the Democratic insider made about Sanders in an as-yet-unreleased Hulu documentary exploring the 2016 campaign.



“In the doc, you’re brutally honest on Sanders: ‘He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it,’” Rose said, quoting Clinton. “That assessment still hold?”

“Yes, it does,” Clinton responded.

Next, a report surfaced claiming that former President Barack Obama could ‘intervene’ in an effort to stop Sanders.

“Former President Barack Obama has remained mostly silent through the early stages of the Democratic race to unseat Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election but that may soon change, friends and associates tell FOX Business, as avowed socialist Bernie Sanders gains in national polls and seems poised to obtain front-runner status,” Fox Business reported.

“He has recently grown even more wary of Sanders as the Vermont senator appears to be gaining momentum in polls and the Democratic primaries begin to heat up with the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary both in February.”

Now, as reported by one of the Left’s establishment magazines, The New Republic, Democratic insiders are launching an all-out assault against Sanders as they panic over his steady and, thus far unstoppable, rise in the polls, even as Joe Biden flounders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign flags.

But interestingly, The New Republic story doesn’t focus on Sanders’ political ideology, which is less socialism and much more Marxist/Communist. Rather, it focuses on maintained the Democrat foreign policy status quo, which is pretty much the same as the Republican Party status quo — endless interventionism, something Sanders has always opposed (and something that President Donald Trump is attempting to back away from):

Of all the differences between Sanders and the rest of the Democratic frontrunners, one stands out: He rejects the Democratic foreign policy consensus—and, more importantly, the specific people who have stewarded it for decades; the other candidates do not. Sanders is neither a radical anti-imperialist nor is he a committed pacifist. For the most part, his views seem to be much more moderate than his critics suggest. But he is clearly a natural skeptic of American power—and in Washington, such skepticism is so rare that it often passes for radical. The person who has perhaps done the most to guide Sanders’s foreign policy platform during this election is his primary foreign policy aide, Matt Duss. Unlike nearly all the other campaign advisors hired by the rest of the field to help craft their foreign policy platforms, Duss is an outsider and another natural skeptic of American power.

Elizabeth Warren is the candidate whose foreign policy language most superficially resembles Sanders’s; she, too, promises to do good, or at least fewer evil, things with American power. But on this subject, even more so than on others, personnel is policy: Her team is made up of the sort of people who have been in charge and would be in charge in any other conventional Democratic administration. 

CNN’s recent look at her foreign policy beliefs described her campaign as attracting “a number of career diplomats who say Washington, as one adviser described it, is in urgent need of a ‘substantial rethink’ of how it conducts foreign policy.” But the people assigned to do the rethink are largely the ones who did the first think. Nearly every participant at that CAP event could slide seamlessly into a Warren administration.

Her top foreign policy aide, Sasha Baker, is a “former deputy chief of staff to ex-Secretary of Defense Ash Carter.” Another adviser is Ilan Goldenberg, “former chief of staff to the Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations in the Obama State Department.” And Jarrett Blanc, “former coordinator for the Iran nuclear implementation at the State Department and acting special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan under President Barack Obama.”

Warren could well repeat these mistakes if she fills her administration with the same kind of people who staff her campaign. But it seems doubtful that Sanders would do the same, considering the sort of people advising him now. …

That is perhaps why party insiders are trying so hard to stop Standers, while ignoring the other Democratic candidates. Warren’s domestic agenda may pose just as much of a threat to business leaders and insurance company executives as Sanders’s, but it will (they imagine) be easier to stop in Congress and the courts. For The Blob, a Sanders presidency could mean being frozen out of power. For the rest of us, that may be the most compelling argument for his candidacy.

One of President Trump’s unrealized 2016 campaign pledges thus far is his desire to get us out of the endless, unwinnable quagmire in Afghanistan, while bringing some semblance of order to the unruly Middle East.

The fact that he hasn’t been able to extract us from Afghanistan yet is less of a failure on his part than it is a victory on the part of the same interventionist foreign policy embraced by the establishment in both political parties.

Sanders isn’t loathed for his Uber-Left-wing domestic agenda nearly as much as he is for his desire to refocus American power in the same way that Trump wants to. Both are outsiders who seek to upset the diplomatic and foreign policy status quo that has cost our country trillions in treasure and thousands of lives, with no end in sight.

This also helps explain why the Deep State is so eager to get rid of Trump. Endless war equals billions in profits for the military/industrial/diplomatic complex, lucrative power appointments, and influence.

Sanders, like Trump, wants to tear all of that down. That’s why the Democrat establishment is now full-bore in attack mode to stop him. Plus, they don’t think he can beat Trump.

Let’s see… a non-democrat, democrat presidential candidate. A candidate who had one of his insane supporters shoot up a republican softball game after the last election. A candidate who has had several different paid lieutenants shown on video during the past 2 weeks calling for riots, setting up gulags, and pulling news anchors out of their studios and setting them on fire, but Bernie “Gulag” Sanders remains silent on their threats. What could possibly go wrong?

If Republicans delay voting for acquittal past the SOTU speech I’m voting for Bernie and all the Democrats I can find.

The only reason Barack would be interested is Michelle was to be nominated at the DNC convention. That can’t happen if Bernie gets enough delegates to win the nomination. Barack has no control over Bernie. It was all set up so no one gets enough delegates due to the radical weak field. If anyone pops up as a leader they must be knocked down. They’re having trouble with Bernie.

Aren’t these the same people who have been trying to destroy Trump and only succeeded in boosting his popularity? Hopefully they will have more success on Bernie.

It seems the entire Democratic Party has devolved into out and out socialists, communists and other left wing, fringe lunatics. Bernie is well suited to speak for the additional, unsavory bevy of dysfunctional reality deniers and freaks of nature locked into making common cause with those identifying as victims of identity politics even while wallowing in the pure hatred of class envy, celebrating all manner of dependency chemical, social and phantasmal. Their rallying cry of “Break me off a bigger piece,” straight from a street, drug culture demands more free stuff in service to social justice causes such as existential… Read more »

So, the real problem with both Bernie, President Trump, and Rand Paul for that matter is they want to destroy the uniparty’s gravy train enabled by endless war. Endless war has been going on since Vietnam or before and is fueled by the tax dollars of middle America who the uniparty’s hierarchy deplores. It is also necessary to sacrifice the lives and health of a relatively small but significant number of the sons and daughters of these deplorables at the same time . I was young when then President Eisenhower warned: “we recognize the imperative need for this development …… Read more »

Not to worry, Bernie will catch the Arkancide virus if he wins the nomination, and they’ll have to nominate somebody else.

Nothing New here and this will be the second time in a Row for ole Bernie.

Since they came out of the closet telling all America they are really Commies they do their Comrade Bernie this way. They make no sense but with the conclusion of this weird Impeachment now I understand.

The Commies are really Stupid, Talk about Left Brainers, a better description of them is No Brainers…and to think they been running this Country into the ground till Trump stop them…

I don’t know about Bernie, but Biden has to be using the same ‘old person plastic surgeon to sew up his beady little eyeballs as Hillary used.

I predict we will see Bernie making a deal with Warren for the VP spot on the ticket, in order to avoid a brokered convention. That’s her best chance for ever holding the office, and considering Bernie’s age and health, it is a good chance. It would also put her in a great position for 2024. She needs to play nice and avoid hot mikes tho.

I appreciate the report on how they are trying to screw Bernie again and I know Trump has respect for Bernie which says a lot about Bernie that King of Cracks can’t muster much of an attempt at character assassination as he does for those who just beg for a good nasty nickname. I will say one thing that Bernie is certainly not a Marxist and none of the universal programs he’s touting are either. If anything he’s closer to a Leninist which uses a version of state run capitalism. Please show me one self avowed Marxist that would say… Read more »

Bernie is so radical he will tank the election for Dems. Biden is much preferred as he has already shown he is malleable.

Bernie is running against a bunch of Never Bernies in his party like Trump had to do, and since he is leading, it shows that many dems don’t like the current trend of the dem party policies and want to go in the Bernie direction.
The major difference with Trump is that Trump actually accomplished much before campaigning and Bernie, spending most of his career as a socialist, not a democrat, has done absolutely nothing. As in zip, nada, zero, void of substance. The dem party has a problem. I don’t feel sorry for them.

Both national parties became unresponsive to their memberships, and the result in the R party is Trump. The result in the D party is Bernie. Trump has completed his takeover of the R party because he spoke for more people than the party itself did.

Now Bernie is doing the same. Democrats are so scared of Russia they want to nominate a communist, go figure. Can the Back Room Boys at the DNC stop Bernie? R’s couldn’t stop Trump, but Dems may act more forcefully. They need to move fast or Bernie will walk off the nomination.

Bloomberg is the DNC’s hail mary to get someone in the field with any possibility of beating Trump. They know between the avowed socialists and field of clowns, their hopes are skipping across the floor. The rule change was meant for no other reason than to get Bloomberg into the fight. Question is, how much did the DNC get to make the change?
