Ahhh, what a great visualization!

Politico has a story claiming Bernie has recorded an announcement of his campaign.

Hi jbob! I hear it might be in some college quad they’ve booked.

In the NY Post so take with grain of salt

He still feels the Bern — for Brooklyn and the presidency.

Vermont democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ camp is in talks with Brooklyn College about giving a major outdoor speech at the campus, fueling speculation that the rally there would be part of a roll-out for a second presidential run.

The Flatbush native attended Brooklyn College for a year, not far from his childhood home, and his older brother, Larry, is a Brooklyn College graduate. He has kept close ties to the City University of New York school, having delivered the commencement speech there in 2017, when he received an honorary degree.

The rally would be delivered on the campus’ spacious quad, according to a source familiar with the planning. Brooklyn College President Michelle Anderson declined to comment.

The Sanders campaign had no immediate comment but one of his backers said, “You’re onto something.”

I could’ve read the thread first, eh?

When I worked for Billy Cobham’s Glass Menagerie in the early 80’s we played an outside gig there at Brooklyn College. That show was the first of three gigs in a single day. The most I’ve ever done in one day during a tour! We went from the college in Brooklyn to an afternoon gig in Philly then on to a nighttime gig at a club in DC. I’ll try to embed a video of that band.

Sorry for the bad recording but here’s Bernie’s message to Our Rev Texas… it hits the same themes I imagine an announcement video will:

It’s real, IMO, OBF. They’ve booked a big quad at some college. And I read that somebody asked him if he was going to announce and they didn’t answer but as they were walking away one of his staff said “you’re on to something” or some such.

Well at least it will be hard the paint Bernie as anti Semitic

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/feb/18/angela-smith-apologises-for-funny-tinge-remark

The MP Angela Smith has apologised for having “misspoke” after she appeared to refer to people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds as having a “funny tinge”.

In a discussion on the extent of racism in the UK on BBC2’s Politics Live show, Smith – who on Monday left Labour to help found a new independent grouping in parliament – said society needed to address the important debate rather than run away from it.

Referencing the fact working-class women find life hard enough but that BAME working-class women face greater impediments, the MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge said: “The recent history of the party I’ve just left suggests that it’s not just about being black or a funny [partially inaudible], you know, different, from the BAME community.”

Ash Sarkar, the political commentator from Novara Media, interjected: “A funny what?”. Smith’s comment, however, was not addressed by the host Jo Coburn.

Sarkar later tweeted: “So err, Angela Smith went a bit of a ‘funny tinge’ herself when I started asking about her record on water privatisation.”

I don’t give much credence to the story about a video announcement making the rounds for the past several days.

Every story I have seen is based on the Politico article, which is based on information from two anonymous persons supposedly familiar with the recording.

Politico is anything but a Bernie-friendly site. In my estimation if/when Senator Sanders does announce, it will be in a live address. Why would he do it by video? It hardly seems his style.

I look forward to hearing him announce, but until then it’s all speculation. Remember also that the 27th day of each month has been getting hyped as a day “he is definitely gonna announce!” lately.

I don’t mind if he waits until others burn out. I don’t know what the heck is going on. ?

I’m not in any hurry for the announcement. I’d rather the campaign get all of its ducks in a row first, including the website. His team has to be prepared to deal with all of the leftover issues from the last campaign. The video needs a wow factor like “America”. And I hope he hires a woman as his campaign manager.

Bob Swern who was active on DK/TOP and worked in and around campaigns for years, he posted a piece on Caucus99%. Main source of information is the Politco article published here.

Politico: “Bernie Sanders records video announcing 2020 campaign”

An amazing article, linking the backer of the Intercept with several large neolibcon efforts and data mining.

I forgot about this – – maybe the reason that Guaidó can afford all those medical supplies and Maduro cannot.

polarbear4

Not machines, but close enough.

Trumpcorp said he would get voter fraud prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He’s been strangely silent about this case, but then again its an R that’s in trouble
