Round One of First Democrat Debates – 9:00pm Tonight on NBC – Open Discussion Thread

Due to the size of the field, the first Democrat presidential primary debate takes place over two nights: tonight Wednesday, June 26, and Thursday, June 27, in Miami.

NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo are hosting the debate and hold exclusive rights to broadcast from 9pm EST to 11 p.m EST on both nights.

The moderators for the debate are: NBC News’ Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie and Chuck Todd; MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, and Telemundo’s José Diaz-Balart.

The candidates for the first night are: Former Housing Secretary Julián Castro; Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas; Former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland; Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City; Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio; Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii; Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey; Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; and Washington Governor Jay Inslee.

If you are a communist, socialist, communal activist; or if your hobbies include sitting around a campfire picking parasites off your friends; then grab your sustainable algae cakes and consider this an open discussion thread.

Or if you are just looking for a laugh by watching Moonbats howl, well, that’s OK too.

    And there was Corey Booker telling us how he lives in a black and brown community and he doesn’t see the economy benefiting them. Well, aside from the fact I don’t think Corey be livin’ in da barrio, how many of them folks speak English well enough to work in a job that requires public contact and how many have education and skills that are marketable. I remember quite distinctly areas in south Florida in the 70s where, if you didn’t speak Spanish you were lost as no one there spoke English and now it’s widespread across the nation..

    I’m sure that, were Sen Booker to come to New Orleans where in May of this year the black unemployment rate was 12%, near twice the national average, functional illiteracy is somewhere around 25% (city and state desperately try to hide it) and the schools specialize in training students for tourist-related jobs he’d blame Trump too. And I suppose it’s Trump’s/Republican’s fault that out of the civilized nations the US is 126th in literacy ( https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/the-highest-literacy-rates-in-the-world.html ), the decades of Democratic meddling in the nation’s educational system not being to blame.

    God help us if any of this package of Democratic crap prevails next November, we’re done for.

          The entire world, or, those who care, now understand why Trump is our President. I do worry about our future after Trump. Every nut case from CA to NY, the Canada Border to the Gulf of Mexico has signed on to display “ignorance.” The world may have many religions, but “most” of the world has a moral standard. There isn’t a Democrat in the bunch that could win an elected leadership position in “most” of the world. Let’s pray that the USA has not been left so uneducated that it happens here. A prayer to Jesus usually calms me when I begin to think about a Democrat president being elected.

      For the benefit of people (like myself) who didn’t watch:

      What that means is that just because a woman — or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female — is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose.

      Apparently the flaw in his statement is that a “trans female” is a man who is pretending to be a woman, and of course a guy can never be pregnant.

      I’m not even bothering to commit this verbal nonsense to memory. I don’t care if I know the proper terms for a man pretending to be a woman or a woman pretending to be a man. There are men and woman and extremely few who are a genetic combo. There is never any natural transitioning, you are what you were born as. I will not indulge this mess. And it would be a double mess if you had a woman pretending to be a guy and she got pregnant. If she was pretending to be a guy and sleeping with another guy does that mean she’s homosexual? That’s so convoluted, so off the rails, I won’t even waste any time thinking that through

    To continue, with a plea for historical accuracy.

    May I introject an observation… One that that needs to be smacked up aside of their heads of todays progressives…

    When and if, progressives achieve power on the goals of covert Marxists what happens, and by that I mean historically what happens, “To those that lead the fight for socialists ideals and they wake up and go, “Heck this is not what we signed up for!”

    Here is a clue, “All one party solutions see its former vanguard’s ‘useful’ proponents as future effective counter revolutionary rabble rousters.”
    What happens to them when the Elected State, needs to cement its authority?

    Let it be known the entire history of Marxist’s first chapter of social reform(reorder) after assuming power is the recognition that their most effective proponents to praving the way to power are recognize as the most effective opponents to the new State Order.

    At you Senator Sanders.

    The brilliant ideas of Democrat candidates:

    Free stuff for everyone. Healthcare, college tuition, jobs, …
    Raise taxes!
    Pass the equal rights amendment for women.
    No more wars. Use the money to invest in healthcare, green economy, environment, good paying jobs.
    $15 minimum wage. 70% taxes, put money back in hands of working people. Paid sick days, free college, break up big corporations. There is plenty of money it is just in the hands of the wrong people.
    Double the earned income tax credit. Minimum wage increase. Paid family leave. Fix public education. “I know how to create jobs.”
    Help Unions so they can increase wages. Regulations cause jobs.
    Bottom 60% hasn’t had a raise in 40 years. [I guess he was talking about the 40 years President Trump took over.]
    Industrial policy for decades has taken jobs out of USA. We need to capture market for green technology and green energy. We need to have manufacturing in USA!!! We need to lead green products.
    Who wants to abolish private health insurance? Raise your hand if you want to…. Warren and De Blaiseo raise their hands. The rest want to keep a private option, at least for awhile.
    I am the only one who requires insurance to pay for abortions!
    Abortion is reproductive justice, even for Trans-people.
    Jail the Pharma companies.
    We need a Marshall plan for Central America.
    End ICE policies that violate human rights. Open borders+++
    It isn’t the immigrants who caused your pain and misery. It is the big corporations who did it to you. It is the 1% who did that to you.

    Sorry, I couldn’t stand to watch any more.

But somehow he got Massachusetts to accept him and said his income tax was in error. Total scam. And now his primary residence is in California yet Utah allowed him to run as a Senator. And sorry Utah but stupid is as stupid does, you elected this POS scammer, how dumb can you be?

The utter lust for power, is exemplified by how hungry each and every halfwit demonRat wants a power grab for the presidency, or at least to position themselves to be elevated to sit on more powerful committees in congress. Its all about lifting their political profile nationally so they can suck in more money via campaign contributions and pocket what they don’t spend when its over.

    The MSM is full of the kindergarten tussle the Dimms put on last night, that they misnamed a debate, while TRUMP IS DOING ALL THE GROWNUP WORK BY HIMSELF. Beijing is demanding that the U.S. lifts the ban selling U.S. technology to China and Huawei, and discard all of the tariffs now imposed on that communist country. Xi Xinping must not only drink it, but bathe frequently in “keep fooling yourself” special wine.
