Democrat Party Civil War Begins

Apparently Boston is still really feeling the Bern.


Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, whose failed presidential campaign started a “political revolution” that catapulted him into the national spotlight, comes to Boston Friday for a whirlwind day of appearances, most of which appear to be already at capacity.

Sanders will give a speech and take questions at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate at 2 p.m. in Dorchester. The conversation, moderated by the Globe’s James Pindell, is sold out, according to the institute’s website.

Sold out, too, is Sanders’ event Friday night at Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Crossing, where he will take the stage with Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, bringing together two of the nation’s leading progressive politicians.

According to Our Revolution, the political nonprofit hosting the free event with Raise UP Massachusetts and the Jobs Not Jails Coalition, the theater’s capacity is 3,500, which is how many people have registered for the rally.

“The guy, who is not even a Democrat, is being treated like a rock star in deep-blue Kennedy Massachusetts, and it’s because he is a rock star,” said Erin O’Brien, chairwoman of the political science department at the University of Massachusetts Boston. “It speaks to the vacuum that Hillary Clinton left. She never had the same kind of passionate support that Bernie Sanders had.”

Sanders, an independent and self-described democratic socialist, has represented Vermont in Congress since 1991. But he caucuses with the Democrats in Congress and campaigned in the Democratic presidential primary against Clinton, who won the nomination and whom Warren eventually endorsed.

Sanders and Warren have worked closely in the Senate, especially since Donald Trump won the White House in November. But many of Sanders’ supporters were disappointed that Warren didn’t endorse his presidential campaign in 2016.

“A lot of Bernie supporters felt if Elizabeth would have gotten behind him, he would have done better” in the primary, O’Brien said. Their joint appearance Friday night “shows that the endorsement days are over,” she said.

The Friday night rally, to champion causes such as criminal justice reform, immigrants’ rights, and wage inequality, does something else, political scientists say. It helps Warren as she gears up for reelection in 2018, which at least one recent survey shows might not be a cake-walk.

A poll released in January by WBUR-FM (external - login to view) showed that 46 percent of respondents said it was time to “give someone else a chance” when asked if Warren deserved to retain her seat. About 44 percent of voters said that Warren should get another term.

“Sanders is surely invested in helping Warren win reelection,” David Hopkins, a political science professor at Boston College, said in an e-mail.

Hopkins called Sanders a “kindred spirit in the Senate” for Warren. If she wins reelection in 2018, Warren becomes a potential presidential candidate in 2020, he said.

“If she does run, she would likely pattern her presidential campaign after Sanders’ 2016 candidacy and seek to inherit the faction of Democrats who supported Sanders last year,” he wrote.

Also on Friday, Sanders also will make a quick jaunt across the Charles River between speaking engagements at the Kennedy Institute and the evening rally. In Cambridge, he will attend a book-signing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

That event is — you guessed it — sold out, too.

Bernie Sanders says Trump voters aren’t 'deplorable' in jab aimed at Clinton camp

"Some people think that the people who voted for Trump are racists and sexists and homophobes and deplorable folks. I don't agree, because I've been there. Let me tell you something else some of you might not agree with, it wasn't that Donald Trump won the election, it was that the Democratic Party lost the election," Sanders said while speaking at an Our Revolution rally in Boston with fellow Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

No one is accusing Hillary and her klan of being Sherlock smart but it's not the first time Sanders has said this including one of the debates with Clinton but it's good to see he brought it up again with a lot of media watching Friday.

Actually turncoat David Brock and his Media Matters truly are deplorables.........

And this has been the point all along. The DEMS or at least the neoliberal wing has been sniveling about the Russians hacking their or Hillary's computer but they are shooting the messenger while the Sanders camp has been rightfully shooting the message.......

WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange has told TV viewers the last thing Hillary Clinton wants them to hear. Assange told Democracy Now that it’s largely irrelevant where the John Podesta emails came from:

Whatever your view on Assange, Clinton is embarrassed by the emails because of what they expose (external - login to view).

Just doing God's work. The evil that Muslims have given to the world is being punished by God. Keep looking to the sky, Nassir.

The other day I found this. It is a picture of your snake, but if you turn it upside down, it looks like a large snake having sex with a smaller, underage snake. Just like Mo-HAM-Ed did with that nine yr old girl.

Hearing Set for Class Action Lawsuit Against DNC

The lawsuit was filed in response to evidence that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries

After deliberating since October 2016, a federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has recently issued an order for appearance to the lawyers representing the DNC and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the plaintiffs representing Bernie Sanders supporters, Jared Beck and Elizabeth Lee Beck. The hearing is set for 1:30 p.m. on April 25, when the judge is expected to announce the court’s decision in response to the DNC’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit (external - login to view).
