First 7 minutes are Bernie related:






The progressive Jewish group J Street called on Saturday for the centrist “Democratic Majority for Israel” (DMFI) to take down an ad targeting Bernie Sanders. The ad suggests that the socialist senator of Vermont could not win the general elections if he becomes the party’s nominee and asks, “why wouldn’t he release his medical records?”
In the 30-second clip, a group of five people are making the case that Sanders is “way too divisive” and is not the right candidate.

“This is the elections of our lifetime,” says Ronald Quinn. “We need a Democrat that could beat Donald Trump,” adds Audrey West. “We have to win in November, and Bernie is not the guy,” continues a third person, Wesley Davis. “Bernie is a great guy, but he just can’t win,” Quinn agrees.

“We need to win Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and Michigan, and Bernie just can’t do it. It’s time to come together and support someone who can win,” concludes a man named Paco Alvarez.

“DMFI, in reality, represents a minority of pro-Israel Democrats who seem more concerned with targeting progressives over Israel policy than with confronting the destructive agenda of Donald Trump,” J Street president Jeremy Ben-Ami said in a statement.

“DMFI has every right to publicly criticize the views of any candidate or elected official,” Ben-Ami continued, “but it has no right to claim to speak for a ‘Democratic majority’ of pro-Israel Americans as it takes sides in the Democratic primary. This dishonest packaging deepens divides over Israel in the US and exacerbates the troubling trend of making Israel a political football – all while distracting from the absolute necessity of defeating Donald Trump.

“The ads themselves have nothing to do with Israel and don’t even mention Senator Sanders’ views on Israel or foreign policy,” he added. “If the funders and activists behind DMFI want to attack the Senator’s politics and candidacy, they should find another banner to rally under that leaves Israel out.”




The exchange is a sign of the difficulty that candidates who hold a more moderate position on illegal immigration and other matters related to immigration could face. On Friday, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., backed away from a 2007 vote she made in which she voted to make English the national language of the U.S.

“I think that when you look at a state like this state, and a country like ours that is so diverse, you don’t want to have that provision in law because then it would be very difficult to have, say, government documents and other things translated into other languages,” she said Friday in Nevada. “So that is not a position I take. I did vote that way, but way back then, along with many other people.”
