Sanders thanks Iowa voters for giving momentum to progressive agenda

Speaking in Iowa on Sunday ahead of a possible 2020 presidential run, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) thanked voters in the state for showing that his progressive policy ideas resonate with the public.

Sanders narrowly lost the 2016 Democratic Iowa caucuses to Hillary Clinton, a result that he called a “tie” that fueled his campaign that year. Sanders ultimately lost the nomination to Clinton but received millions of votes.

“Why it was important in terms of what Iowa did in that very first caucus, is that it showed the American people that the ideas that we were talking about were not radical ideas or extremist ideas or ideas that were outside of the mainstream,” Sanders said at a rally at Iowa State University.

“So it started off in Iowa and it went to New Hampshire and it went across the country. And ideas that just three years ago were perceived to be radical and extremist ideas are now ideas that are supported by the vast majority of the American people. Thank you Iowa,” he added.

Early voting starts today here in Texas so JD and I will go cast our Beto voted asap. The Beto signs are multiplying everytime I venture out. Most of my new block are showing their support so I know my neighbors are alright 🙂

Meanwhile, Jovanka’s opponent, Buffy-Wicks-the-establishment-Dem, is being supported by rich Republicans.

Meet the Pro-Kavanaugh Republican Running the Newest Buffy Wicks PAC

Taking a look into the backers of this Buffy Coalition PAC reveals an extremely disturbing cast of characters, none of whom have any intention of doing “A LOT TO STOP DONALD TRUMP.” In fact, they are backing Buffy because in a deeply blue state, corporate Democrats like her are the best Republicans can hope for to accomplish their agenda.

First, there’s Ashlee Titus, one of the PAC’s treasurers. She’s a lawyer at Bell, McAndrews & Hiltachk LLP in Sacramento, “the state’s Republican law firm”. (The PAC shares a mailing address, phone number, and email with the firm). Ashlee is the president of the Sacramento branch of the Federalist Society, a secretive group of far right-wing lawyers who have hand-selected Trump’s many judicial picks

There are three other PACs who fund Buffy’s Coalition PAC, and they are all bad news for the regular working people of AD15.

The GOP has no qualms making a little helpful ‘edit’.

She’s “radical” huh? It is incredible how much BS the GOPukes and their allies have gotten away with for all these years!

Speaking of dishonest Republicans, I was so pissed off last Friday by a flyer I received in the mail.

A flyer for a very good Dem candidate for CT Senate (I met her and she seems really good, solid, smart & passionate) finally arrived in the mail last Thursday. I was all happy, showed hubby, told him to vote for her, it was the first one from her, whereas we’ve been getting inundated with flyers from the incumbent Repub. It was a very positive flyer, just outlined all the good things she wanted to accomplish, doesn’t even mention that she’s running on the Dem ticket, said she was an independent (she used to be associated with the WFP).

The very next day a NASTY flyer with a graphic of Julie (Kushner)’s head on a puppet claiming that she’s a “RADICAL LIBERAL WHO WILL PUPPET TO THE SPECIAL INTEREST OF MALLOY AND THE BIG UNIONS”, on one side and the other side a darkened photo of her claiming that she wants higher taxes, increased debt etc. God I hate attack ads. Adds such a bitter flavor to the brew. A real turn off for me. And the timing of the ad was very suspicious.

Might I recommend my approach to mailers? They go straight to the recycling bin without a glance, treated like the white noise they are. You cannot trust a thing that’s in any of those, even the seemingly friendly ones.

Good point!

They mail to all voters but they specifically are targeted at the uninformed voter, to scare them into voting against their best interests. Sadly it does work otherwise they wouldn’t spend the money on them. Now for the informed voter like us here they go in the recycle bin once I have a good laugh over the BS on them.
