  1. To prove they are not a cult, People for Bernie have release this new ad (and no, it is not The Onion):
  2. No, actually. I don't. Everything I post conforms with the truth. Sanders actually said that the astronomical costs would bankrupt the country. Bill
  3. The press release from Common Cause (you lying moron): https://www.commoncause.org/press-release/common-cause-files-complaint-against-pro-bernie-sanders-group-our-revolution-for-violating-soft-money-ban/ Common Cause Files Complaint Against Pro-Bernie Sanders Group Our Revolution for Violating Soft Money Ban Today, Common Cause filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging reason to believe that Our Revolution, a nonprofit political organization established by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in 2016 and now supporting his 2020 presidential campaign, violated the federal ‘soft money’ ban. Sen. Sanders has been a longtime critic of super PACs and so-called “Dark Money” groups. The complaint documents that Our Revolution has solicited contributions explicitly to elect Sanders president, received contributions far in excess of the applicable $5,000 contribution limit and spent funds in connection with federal elections, including current voter mobilization efforts supporting Sanders in Iowa. Under the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, an entity directly or indirectly established by a federal candidate or officeholder is not allowed to “solicit, receive, direct, transfer, or spend funds in connection with an election for Federal office” unless the “funds are subject to the limitations, prohibitions, and reporting requirements” of federal law. According to Our Revolution’s tax returns showing contribution amounts but not contributor names, data compiled and first reported by the Associated Press, from 2016 to 2018 Our Revolution raised almost $1 million dollars from contributors who gave in excess of the applicable $5,000 contribution limit, including multiple contributions of between $100,000 and $300,000. Our Revolution has not disclosed any of its contributors to the FEC, as required by federal campaign finance law. “Americans expect and deserve to have our campaign finance laws enforced and they expect political organizations to abide by the law, regardless of their political views,” said Paul Seamus Ryan, Common Cause vice president for policy and litigation. “The facts surrounding Our Revolution, including its founding by Sen. Sanders, its receipt of six-figure contributions, its failure to disclose donors to the FEC, and its political spending in Iowa and elsewhere, point to a clear violation of the federal soft money ban. Common Cause is a nonpartisan organization and we work to hold power accountable regardless of party affiliation or policy positions. It is critically important that the soft money ban be enforced, or outside groups founded by candidates will become a commonplace means to evade contribution limits and disclosure requirements.” In 2018, Common Cause filed a complaint against America First Policies and America First Action, outside groups founded by President Trump’s campaign after the 2016 election, alleging violation of the same soft money ban that Our Revolution appears to have violated. That complaint is still pending. To read the FEC complaint against Our Revolution, click here.
  4. Did you see that "Our Revolution" is in deep crap? How long did they expect to get away with their criminal political money laundering? Bill
  5. Do you have reading comprehension issues? He said a Lean Mean Joe Greene Grilling Machine, which probably means he has a George Foreman grill (since XO is pretty clueless). Bill (a BGE owner)
  6. Is your cult celebrating the death of this filthy plutocrat? Bill
  7. I dunno. Sounds unlikely. They flew too low into a mountain range above Calabasas. I live very close by there. It is hard to understand why they close that flight path when there were very flat alternatives that would have put them towards their destination. Bill
  8. Small condo? It is a beautiful Town Home. Very expensive property. He should repay the state for his son (and the boy's mother) living off welfare while Sanders refused to work for a living. Sanders is totally selfish, in addition to being corrupt, incompetent, and dishonest. Total scumbag. Bill
  9. Liar. You quit the party in 2000 and have spent two decades thrice voting in Republican Senators who turned the court over to the far-right and undermining Democratic candidates. Communists are not "liberals." You are a bad joke. Bill
  10. Sanders is a corrupt, incompetent, and dishonest person. He will NEVER be our nominee. You've drunk too much kool aid. Bill
