UPDATE TO: AT LAST, DEBATE STRIKES A NERVE! (SEE THE DAILY KOS LINK)

 

WHAT THE MEDIA FAILED TO MENTION IN

THE DEMOCRATIC DEBATE

AS USUAL  HILLARY IS TO THE RIGHT OF THE SENATOR FROM VERMONT

 
 
LAST NIGHT THE DEMOCRATS DISPLAYED A DEBATE BASED ON SUBSTANCE. Almost all print and TV media followed up with a conclusion of the blow by blow between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The media agreed both came across as Presidential compared to the AMC Gremlin load of Republicans at a three ring circus.

If you stayed tuned to listen to the MSNBC commentators “summarize” the content or Detroit Free Press this morning, they missed some of what prove to be the most controversial and crucial points. (The Washington Post did cover the Michigan issue).

Bernie Sanders in his final words stated what should be obvious. Sen. Sanders stated that both he and Hillary Clinton, whichever wins the nomination are “100 times better than any of the Republican candidates.” If you do see that by now, you must be drinking from the Flint River.

BERNIE SANDERS SPOKE THE UNMENTIONABLE OF ALL UNMENTIONABLES: THE KOCH BROTHERS

At last Bernie and Hillary “outed” the biggest threat to our system of government. I was shocked but pleased when they made the Koch Bros and their cronies as a threat to America. The consolidation of the wealthiest individuals in the “plan” they have introduced immediately upon President Obama’s first inauguration in 2009. At the same time at least 18 billionaires and other multi-millionaires met at a posh resort in a secretive and highly secured meeting to develop their strategy for the ensuing years.

THE KOCH CONSPIRACY IS WORKING TO UNDERMINE OUR REPUBLIC

Jane Mayer’s DARK MONEY proves once again as the source in documenting the true terror at our door. This is not just another episode of The Rich and Famous. This is a Koch Industry inspiration to gather the wealthiest of the wealthy to conspire to use first money and power to not influence but to take over the United States Government.

And Sen. Bernie Sanders had the courage to state what we have not heard any candidate ever in recent history. “Congress has been bought. The biggest financial institutions, insurance, pharmaceutical and the Koch Bros control the policy and agenda of the nation. And if you believe they are out to better the lot of us, you are misguided.
UPDATE
 
Amazing! I came across one of the stories from THE DAILY KOS and their piece expands on what I conclude here. This is one quote cited from Princeton University.
 
"...Economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.*"
 
 
When Bernie Sanders called for a complete overall of election campaign funding and Citizens United, he is spot on! I hesitate to use the term “dead on” for the obvious.

"Right now, neither Republican nor Democratic politicians are actually working for the people of this country, nor do they care — they’re wholly concerned with and working for rich, corporate America."  from The Daily Kos

The Koch Bros have gathered $881 million to undermine the 2016 election. The Republican Party and their Super Pacs have half that amount: approximately $400 million. Do the math, that is $1.4 Billion to spend to bend minds, lean on, propagandize and buy as many elections across the country. This includes all the races for the Senate, Congress and Governor. Soon they may control who wins local elections for Drain Commissioner.

The Democratic Party has their Super Pac, but it is mere $40 million. That’s it. So when Bernie Sanders calls for a political revolution where millions of the middle class, the poor, the old and our youth to stand as one and let the voices be heard. Damn! He was so right on when he suggested a million voices stand outside Mitch McConnell’s window, he will have to listen or throw off the shackles of the Koch Bros. If you read DARK MONEY, you will come to see how he exemplifies their philosophy.

There is only one other Republican that must retire or be removed from office more than Mitch McConnell. It is Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan.

BOTH AGREED, FEDERAL INTERVENTION IN REBUILDING MICHIGAN IS AT HAND.

RICK SNYDER’S abysmal performance and lack of true empathy for the residents of Flint is deplorable in every sense of the word. Hillary Clinton suggested several steps in rebuilding the water infrastructure, long-term health care, educational aide and a total economic overall for Flint.

Ironic isn’t it? The chief proponent of the Emergency Manager Law to move in to poor cities, usurp the democratic process and install an autocrat may be told to step aside. Governor Rick Snyder may have to experience the humiliation of his own policy, being replaced by a federal Emergency Manager.
