Bernie sides with Putin over his own party

No.400198 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders went on the offensive against the anti-Putin Democrats Sunday, claiming that only his 2020 presidential campaign understands it has to do more than just defeat President Donald Trump (which it won’t).

Speaking with NBC News' Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Sunday, Sanders said he and the other Democratic candidates for president have a "moral responsibility" to protect Obamacare and preserve the Earth from the negative effects of climate change.

The senator pushed back against Todd's suggestion Sanders was merely offering the same platform that got him defeated in the 2016 primaries by Hillary Clinton, without giving any evidence. Among many topics touched on during the interview, Sanders said he does not support any restrictions on abortion, and views the subject as medical, rather than political.

"There are millions of people who are sick and tired of that Democratic [Party]," Sanders said, noting several recent polls which showed him ahead of Trump in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. Biden has a larger lead over Trump in Pennsylvania than Sanders does.

“We took on every Democratic governor, we took on every Democratic mayor, and we ended up winning 22 states and 13 million votes,” Sanders said. Clinton won 5 more states and 6 million more votes than Sanders, proving that it’s better to work with your party rather than opposing it.

Todd produced a quote from T.J. Rooney, Democratic Party chairman of Pennsylvania, who told U.S. News and World Report Friday, "I'm supremely confident Bernie Sanders could not win Pennsylvania... When Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren open their mouths, many, many Democrats in Pennsylvania stick their fingers in their ears."

Joe Biden in Philly: If America wants a president to ‘spew hatred,’ they already have that

No.399596 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Joe Biden plans to directly challenge President Donald Trump as a destructive, divisive force, and to offer himself as an antidote in his speech scheduled for Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia.

“If the American people want a president to add to our division, to lead with a clenched fist, closed hand and a hard heart, to demonize the opponents and spew hatred – they don’t need me. They already have a president who does just that," Biden plans to say, according to excerpts released by his campaign Saturday morning. "I am running to offer our country – Democrats, Republicans and independents – a different path.”

Biden is scheduled to speak at a 1 p.m. rally at Eakins Oval, capping a three-week opening campaign swing that has seen him expand his lead over the rest of the crowded Democratic field. While many of his rivals have spent months introducing themselves or laying out policy prescriptions, the former vice president, already nearly universally known, has worked to establish himself as the Democrat with the stature to counter Trump, whom he has painted as an existential threat to the country’s character.

“Some say Democrats don’t want to hear about unity. That they are angry – and the angrier you are the better,” Biden plans to say Saturday. “Well, I don’t believe it. I believe Democrats want to unify this nation.”

Biden has called this election a fight “for the soul” of the country.

Pennsylvania’s Republican chairman, Val DiGiorgio, said that as Biden campaigns, voters, especially those in the Keystone State, will see that the former vice president offers no “meaningful success and no real vision for the future.”

"PM Wants Me Dead": Shocker From Arvind Kejriwal

No.400690 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Over the weekend, Arvind Kejriwal had told a Punjab-based television channel that like former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, he too, would be assassinated by his personal security officers.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, caught in a controversy over his claim that his personal security officers could kill him, on Monday claimed it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who wanted him dead. Delhi being a Union Territory, the Delhi Police is under the control of the Union home ministry. For the just-concluded Lok Sabha election, Mr Kejriwal has made the demand for full statehood his key theme.
In a twitter exchange with senior BJP leader and Union Minister Vijay Goel on Monday, Mr Kejriwal, in a Hindi post, said, "Vijay ji, not my PSO but it is Modi ji who wants to get me killed".

The remark was a response to Mr Goel's Hindi tweet that said: "I'm sorry that by expressing suspicions about your own PSO, you have given a bad name to the Delhi Police. It would be better if you choose your PSO. Let me know if you need any help. Wish you a long life".

Over the weekend, Mr Kejriwal had told a Punjab-based television channel that like former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, he too, would be assassinated by his personal security officers.

The comment had triggered furore, and the Delhi BJP wrote to the police asking that Mr Kejriwal's security cover be withdrawn. Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor, who sent the letter, also advised the Delhi Police to seek an apology from the Chief Minister.

Trump: Bernie Sanders is 'history'

No.400518 ViewReplyOriginalReport
President Trump declared Monday that his possible 2020 opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is "history" and former Vice President Joe Biden is "pulling ahead" in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

"Looks like Bernie Sanders is history. Sleepy Joe Biden is pulling ahead and think about it, I'm only here because of Sleepy Joe and the man who took him off the 1% trash heap, President O! China wants Sleepy Joe BADLY!" Trump tweeted.

Biden leads Sanders by nearly 20 percentage points in the Democratic primary race, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average.

Trump's message came hours before he is scheduled to headline a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, a state he won in 2016 but where Biden, who was born in Scranton, is making a strong push.

The president has repeatedly targeted the former vice president, whom his political team views as a serious contender even as he has downplayed the threat he poses in the 2020 race.

Pre-monsoon rainfall 22% lower than usual across India, says IMD

No.400710 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Pre-monsoon rainfall from March to May, which is a phenomenon vital to agriculture in several parts of the country, has recorded a deficiency of 22 percent, according to India Meteorological Department (IMD) data.

The IMD recorded 75.9 millimetres of rainfall from 1 March to 15 May against the normal rainfall of 96.8 millimetres, which comes to around minus 22 percent. From 1 March to 24 April, the IMD recorded a deficiency of 27 percent. The deficiency this week seems to have fallen over the last fortnight due to rains over east and northeast India.

Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon has advanced into the South Andaman Sea and conditions are favourable for it to reach the North Andaman Sea and the Andaman Islands in the next two to three days, the IMD said.
