1. No, it’s not “clearly we all want a positive relationship with Russia.

Sorry, Bernie, that seems like a Trumpian level LIE. To say such a thing with a straight face is troubling, to say the least. Obama brought us to the brink of Armageddon last year. And Democrats said absolutely nothing about it. Further, Obama destabilized Ukraine, Victoria Nuland bragging about $5Bn spent subverting Ukrainian democracy. A violent foreign-sponsored coup tore Ukraine in half, under Obama, and where were you?

We remain at a hair-trigger alert for nuclear annihilation, Bernie. And this Russiagate shit directly increases hostilities between the two nations. Directly. And you just lied about it.

2. And then you lie about Syria, as if Assad is the sole perpetrator of violence! He is defending his country from armies–LARGE WELL-ARMED ARMIES–of the most despicable, psychotic terrorists on the planet! They are foreign-sponsored, armed, funded, trained. And the US CIA has been instrumental since 2011, despite being on the same side as AL QAEDA!

Bernie Sanders is a menace.

3. “No longer a debate about that issue?” (Russiagate)

Yet we’ve seen zero credible evidence to date. And even Clapper said there was no collusion. Feinstein too!

Sanders is the sandman. He’s here to impeach Trump, even if he has to lie at the same egregious levels as his target.

4. So Sanders will also investigate ISRAEL, SAUDI ARABIA, TURKEY, QATAR and other foreign powers who influence US elections?

Or it’s just Russia that makes it a “serious crime.”

Funny, we never heard about the extensive election shenanigans from those nations. This is figuratively and literally “Trumped up.”

5. Then Sanders continues with the demonization: “revealing sensitive information” about a “nation with policies that are at odds with our own…”

What does that mean, Bernie, in English, without the spin?

The Russians are ACTUALLY fighting AGAINST ISIS. The US, not so much. The US only fights ISIS in Iraq, but not inside Syria. In fact we bombed Syrian army units and helped ISIS, at least twice. Once in October of 2016 and then Trump’s big Tomahawk stunt helped ISIS.

6. Sanders tells the Pollyanna bullshit about “intelligence sharing” as if these intelligence agencies weren’t in-fact HELPING ISIS and AL QAEDA in the shadows because they can get away with it. Hey Bernie, why do they have all those weapons? You’re disingenuous.

Even your Vice President spilled the beans and was quickly told to shut up. The shutting up part is as important as what Biden revealed:

“[Erdogan…the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc.]…poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad, except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra, and al Qaeda, and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”

7. Talking out of both sides of his ass, Sanders tells us how information sharing about terrorists is a good thing, and yet information sharing about terrorists with the Russians–who are actually killing terrorists in Syria–is by default a bad thing. Russia is not allowed to be an ally or to help in any way, according to Bernie Sanders, the CIA, and the foreign policy establishment. That’s what’s really going on here.

8. Except where was that Special Prosecutor for Obama’s support to Al Qaeda? Bush’s Treasonous cover-up of 9/11? CIA drug running, since forever? Obama’s destruction of Libya, Ukraine and Syria?

You’re very selective Bernie, in which crimes you decide to go after and which you do not. Very, very selective. It’s blatant hypocrisy.

A little reality check for Bernie Sanders:

Why Not a Probe of ‘Israel-gate’?

The Flawed Chemical Analysis in the French Intelligence Report of April 26, 2017 Alleging a Syrian Government Sarin Nerve Agent Attack in Khan Sheikhoun of April 4, 2017

 

The sequence of steps that result in sarin being transformed into DIMP which FIR implies is a unique signature associated with sarin produced by the Syrian government. In fact, DIMP could easily be produced in many circumstances from the normal breakdown of sarin after its use. The point that DIMP is an expected product to be found in the aftermath of a sarin attck is made in a statement from United States Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) which is an arm of the Center for Disease Control (CDC). The ATSDR document that describes DIMP can be found at https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/ToxProfiles/tp119-c1-b.pdf. We quote from this document below: Diisopropyl methylphosphonate, or DIMP, is a chemical by-product resulting from the manufacture and detoxification of GB (also called Sarin), a nerve gas that the Army produced from 1953 to 1957. … You might find diisopropyl methylphosphonate in places where GB has been produced, stored, or used, for example, the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) outside of Denver, Colorado. It is therefore clear that if the FIR analysis that led to the identification of sarin as being produced by the Syrian government would have led to the same unsupported conclusion from the FIR if it were applied to an indigenous sarin attack in Denver Colorado. This would particularly be the case if a sarin dispersing munition similar to the one described by FIR in the sarin nerve agent attack of April 29, 2013 was used in the postulated indigenous attack. That particular munition had a small charge of military explosives to rupture the container and disperse the sarin. The explosive would have certainly produced hexamine as a byproduct. The hexamine could have readily broken the fluorine bonds on some of the sarin residue leading to the production of DIMP. However, this is not the only path for producing DIMP the residues from a sarin attack.

But there’s more I could say…

According to Reuters, the Pentagon has spent 8.5 trillion dollars since 1996, without ever completing a required annual audit.”
PBS

What’s that?

$8.5 TRILLION

Unaccounted for in the Pentagon, a perpetual, intractable problem that happens to be: BUSINESS AS USUAL.

The entire student debt of the United States is only $1.3 trillion, for comparison sake.

And corporate America demands you continue business as usual, while Green Party candidate–who can’t even get on a comedy interview segment–wants to reprioritize us away from a brutal murderous empire to something more sustainable and educated.

Physicians for Social Responsibility has an extensive rebuttal to the UNSCEAR rosy scenario 2014 “report.”

Critical Analysis of the UNSCEAR Report “Levels and effects of radiation exposure due to the nuclear accident after the 2011 Great East-Japan Earthquake and tsunami”

There are several contentious issues regarding the IAEA/ FAO foodstuff database. First of all, it only includes measurement data for I-131, Cs-134 and Cs-137 and so the UNSCEAR report only considered these three radionuclides in the assessment of doses from ingestion.58 Other radionuclides, such as Sr-89/90 were not taken into account. Also, no comment is made in the UNSCEAR report regarding the sites where and how the IAEA food samples were collected, raising the suspicion that selective sampling may have taken place.

…The dose assessments of the Fukushima workers cannot be relied upon

The UNSCEAR report lists 24,832 people who were employed on the site of the nuclear catastrophe as plant workers, emergency personnel and clean-up staff. Regarding their radiation exposure, UNSCEAR relies solely on data received from TEPCO itself.67

…The special vulnerability of the embryo to radiation is not taken into account

…Non-cancer diseases and hereditary effects were ignored by UNSCEAR

…Comparisons of nuclear fallout with background radiation are misleading

…UNSCEAR’s interpretations of findings are questionable

…UNSCEAR’s conservative method of calculating lifetime dose, this figure most probably represents a systematic underestimation
