Sanders Endorses Biden? It’s Coming….

Region:
Theme:

You heard it here first. No, Sanders hasn’t formally endorsed Biden yet, but make no mistake. It’s coming — guaranteed, maybe before month’s end.

Just like he endorsed legally challenged war criminal, racketeer, perjurer Hillary, a Biden endorsement is virtually certain.

It’s coming once he drops out of the race, despite Biden’s near-half century of high crimes, racism, and betrayal of the public trust, his rap sheet as bad or worse than Hillary’s.

When endorsing her in 2016, Sanders falsely claimed she understands the need to “fix an economy in America that is rigged and that sends almost all new wealth and income to the top one percent.”

She was bought off multiple times over by Wall Street, other corporate interests, and super-wealthy domestic and foreign contributors — directly or through the Clinton Foundation racket, a self-enrichment scheme masquerading as a charitable NGO.

Sanders lied claiming the regressive 2016 party platform was “by far the most progressive (one) in the history of the (Dem) party.” Polar opposite was true.

There was nothing in it against corporate coup d’etat trade deals. Nothing about reigning in Wall Street or war-profiteering. Nothing about universal healthcare.

Nothing about ending endless wars of aggression. Nothing about rescinding police state repression.

Nothing about holding killer cops accountable or putting people above privilege and profits.

Sunday’s well-rehearsed, pre-scripted theater, masquerading as political debate like all others in the US, featured bombast, misinformation, and disinformation over substance, mostly by Biden — slogans and one-liners over solutions, and promises made to be broken if elected.

Sanders falsely said that if ill with COVID-19, Americans won’t “need to worry about coming up with money for treatment.”

They’ve got plenty to worry about if have inadequate insurance or none at all. There’s nothing proposed about US provided medical care for Americans infected with COVID-19, testing to be offered only to individuals with symptoms believed to indicate the disease.

There’s nothing in place now or will there be if Sanders or Biden succeeds Trump to “protect the wages of every worker in America,” as Sanders claimed.

He falsely claimed with him as president, Medicare for all would be enacted into law — maybe someday, not a chance any time near-term.

What didn’t happen during the Great Depression with Franklin Roosevelt as president, surely won’t happen ahead under Trump or whoever succeeds him in 2021 or 2025.

Sanders misled viewers by claiming otherwise if he’s elevated to the nation’s highest office.

He’s right calling the US healthcare system dysfunctional. It’s because what I call the sickness industry prioritizes profit-making over human health and treatment when needed.

Biden lied claiming congressional legislation heading for adoption will cover medical expenses for Americans ill from COVID-19.

The work in progress legislation passed by the House will be considered by the Senate later this week or shortly thereafter.

It includes free COVID-19 testing for Americans with symptoms instead of mass testing like China, South Korea, and other nations are dealing with the virus.

It offers 10 days of paid sick leave for 20% of full-time US workers, 80% of the US workforce left on their own sink or swim, including part-time and temp workers even if too ill from COVID-19 or any other illness to work.

Government-provided healthcare shouldn’t just be for the elderly or cover one illness that affects a small fraction of the population.

It should be for everyone at all times, covering all medical, dental, prescription drugs, and related healthcare expenses.

Americans indeed face crisis conditions. Ongoing for decades, it’s at a fever pitch today because of COVID-19 fear-mongering.

It features a lack of confidence because government serves privileged interests at the expense of most others.

Biden represents a near-half century of dirty business as usual. The same goes for Sanders for around 30 years in Congress.

He pretends otherwise. Check his voting record, most often along party lines, supporting dirty business as usual while pretending otherwise.

Instead of going all-out for universal healthcare, he settled for Obamacare.

It made the US sickness industry more dysfunctional by rationing healthcare to enrich insurers, drug companies, and large hospital chains at the expense of Medicare for all, including prescription drugs and dental coverage.

Neither Sanders or Biden addressed the money-controlled US political system under one-party with two right wings.

Names and faces in high office change. The dirty system remains in place — unaltered except at times tinkered around the edges too inadequately to matter.

Popular revolution is the only solution, voting a waste of time when results turn out the same way every time.

Only the illusion of change happens when elections are held, never the real thing from inception to today.
