CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A retired Army paratrooper and current West Virginia lawmaker seeking to restore the Democratic Party’s blue-collar roots chose Veterans Day to formalize his campaign for the presidency in 2020.


Richard Ojeda made the announcement Monday at the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington. Ojeda filed his campaign committee paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Sunday.


"We have not had people that have really fought for the working-class citizens in this country," Ojeda said.

the West Virginia senate in 2016 and became a champion of teachers during their fight for better pay and benefits.

He sponsored successful legislation to make medical marijuana legal, and has stressed health care and economic issues in a district reeling from lost coal jobs.




He said Republicans and Democrats alike, including President Donald Trump, have focused more on "infighting, political wars."


Ojeda is a relative newcomer to politics. He lost a 2014 primary race for the U.S. House before winning his senate seat in 2016.


After retiring from a 24-year military career, he co-founded a nonprofit group that gave shoe vouchers to schoolchildren and provided meals to the poor and elderly, among other things. He said some kids in the coal region had it worse than the ones he saw in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Ojeda said politicians on the federal level should be required to donate everything they make above $1 million to charity.



Ojeda took the struggles of state teachers to heart because he spent four years as a high school ROTC instructor. He spoke to groups of teachers several times and made a passionate Senate speech in January in favor of them. The next month they embarked on a nine-day strike and won a 5 percent pay increase.

Bernie Sanders’ Campaign Manager: He’s Still Considering a 2020 Run

Reshared by KB723















Published on May 31, 2018 by:














So Bernie Sanders' former campaign

manager Jeff Weaver (left) recently reiterated

what Bernie Sanders has already said

previously that yes he is in fact

considering another presidential run in

2020. So I want to talk about that but

there's something else that is really

interesting about this article in

particular with respect to how Bernie

Sanders holds up against Donald Trump in

hypothetical matchups. 

So according to Alexandra Hutzler of Newsweek the

campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in

his 2016 presidential run hinted that

the independent senator from Vermont may

run for the White House again in 2020.

Sanders is considering another run for

the presidency but for now is completely

focused on his congressional reelection

campaign in November. 

Jeff Weaver said in an interview with c-span host John

McArdle on Monday Sanders made waves as

the progressive who consistently

challenged a former Secretary of State

Hillary Clinton in his 2016 primary bid

his platform largely focused on issues

like universal health care and income

inequality. 
When Sanders announced his

candidacy for president in 2015 he was

50 points behind Clinton in almost every

major national poll but with his

popularity among young Democratic voters

he closed that gap and ended up winning

22 States and about 45% of the pledged

delegates before conceding and endorsing

Clinton at the Democratic National

Convention. 
One of the reasons why he was

so successful in 2016 was that people

out in the country sensed rightly that

he was an authentic messenger for the

message he was delivering we were told

McArdle during the interview though

there are still six months until the

midterm elections America is already

looking forward to possible 2020

presidential runs new polling conducted

by CNN shows that in a one-on-one

matchup between Bernie Sanders and

Donald Trump Sanders is already a

leading candidate beating Trump by a 55

to 42 percent margin among registered

voters first though Sanders would have

to navigate a Democratic primary while

politicians have yet to officially

declare their campaigns for 2020 it is

rumor that popular figures like senator

Elizabeth Warren and Senator Cory Booker.
 


May be in the mix so as it stands Bernie

Sanders is still defeating Donald Trump

in hypothetical matchups by a margin of

more than 10 points so really that lead

he has over Trump has remained

consistent since other polls were taken

in 2016, and if he could hold the same

lead in two years maybe he could leave

that same lead or hold that same lead

rather him for another two years so this

is really really exciting to me and I

think that as the 2020 Democratic Party

primary commences officially and it's

probably gonna start early next year.

We're gonna see people prove whether or

not they truly care about electability

because what was that that centrist



Democrats and Democratic party loyalists

said to us progressives back in 2015 and

2016. Well look, you don't want to roll

the dice with a socialist like Bernie

Sanders. We want someone who's

battle-tested like Hillary Clinton who

can actually defeat a Republican and now

if they truly believe in that sentiment

they would back Bernie 100 percent in

2020 because look at that fifty five to

forty two percent if you truly want to

defeat Donald Trump if that's your

number-one goal then the Democratic

Party establishment has got to align

behind Bernie Sanders. 


They've got to fall in line now the same thing they

told us now they've got to take their

own advice and fall in line behind the

individual best suited to beat Donald

Trump in 2020 because obviously Bernie

would have won at this point. 


I don't think you can really deny this if you're

a serious person because when you look

at hypothetical matchups between Bernie

Sanders and Donald Trump he has consistently

outpaced Donald Trump.

I mean he pulled outside the margin of error

unlike Hillary Clinton in most cases

Bernie Sanders is really the ticket to

defeating Donald Trump in 2020'


So if Democrats truly care about beating

Donald Trump and winning, they wouldn't do

shenanigans we don't need any type of

rigging any fuckery like we saw in 2016

otherwise they will hurt our chances.

Collectively the left and even the

center left of beating Republicans will

they do it again I'm not optimistic I'm

not because we already see what Tom

Perez is doing to basically exclude

progressives from the process. He's

purging them from the DNC and replacing

those positions with party loyalists and

hacks within the Democratic Party so I

think that the Democratic Party has got

to get its act together we need to make

sure that Tom Perez resigns before the

2020 primary, so that way we get someone

like Keith Ellison and there who would

actually be fair, I truly believe that he

would be a neutral arbiter which is all

we're asking for we don't need someone

to stack the deck in favor of or any I

think that we can win ourselves without

any help because now Bernie Sanders has the

advantage of more name recognition and I

think that we have a real shot in 2020!

So we'll see how this all plays out it's

gonna be interesting um I think a lot of

centrist Democrats and Democratic party

loyalists are going to be backpedaling

on you know uh their need for for us to

get a really battle tested and electable

candidate and they're gonna say no you

know that's not gonna matter now so much.

We'll see what they have to say but look,

here's what it comes down to. If you

wanted to defeat Donald Trump you go

with Bernie he's the safe bet and not

only is he the safest bet but he is the

individual that would most likely

catalyze change that we desperately need

when it comes to American policy so

we'll see what happens but um I'm

certainly getting excited! Support this

So, since we are talking about Tom Perez, I really think he needs to quit his day job!!!
 

Folks, I have been in the political landscape since the SCOTUS allowed GW to become POTUS, I dropped out of posting here for a bit longer than a year, for many reasons (to be honest I was much happier playing the ignorant for that time) back again to give it a second go around and again in support of Bernie Sanders! I actually had some ChuckleHead reply to me last night, and the answer is NO!!! Trump is in office because HRC could not see the benefit of another candidate taking the lead, one that could not have only secured the 2016 election, but also one who could have made profound changes to our political scope, not only for today but in the future as well, I am sorry Sally, but I do not live my life through pure Hate, I look at the issues at hand, I do my own investigating before I come to my own personal conclusion, I have run into this quite a bit lately, folks still Bitching and Crying about how Hillary was screwed, to that I say What comes around goes Around!!! You all still gonna sit around licking your wounds instead of searching the horizon for electable candidates? I new there was something fishy going on every time Bernie would have huge turnouts for his speeches, I knew something was not right every time a news anchor would mention a Bernie win, but always ended up pouting his lack of delegates/superdelegates... I have been called a TROLL amongst many other Clever names because I believe in democracy and do not always lean with the most, how could I when I have spent my time seeking and finding the Truth!!! Something for the folks who seemed to have turned a Blind Eye, wake up and smell the Fucking Coffee already!!!!!!!!! I assume Sally may like my reply???

The Law Is Coming, Mr. Trump - Part 1 & 2

There's an editorial in the New York Times that I guess will appear in tomorrow's paper,
yeah because today's the 10th and they're usually a day behind from from you know from the web New York Times.



Anyway I got to share this with you listen up, why don't we take a step back and contemplate what Americans and the

world are witnessing.

Early Monday morning FBI agents raided the New York
office home and hotel room of the personal lawyer for the President of the United States. They seized evidence of possible federal crimes including bank fraud, wire fraud campaign finance violations related to payoffs made to women including a porn actress who say they had affairs with the president before he took office and were paid off and intimidated into silence.

That evening last night the president, surrounded himself with the top American military officials and launched unbidde into a tirade against the top American law enforcement officials officials of his own government accusing them of what he called an Attack on our Country, oh also The Times' report on Monday evening that investigators were examining a hundred and fifty thousand dollar donation to the president' personal foundation from a Ukrainian steel magnate given during the American presidential campaign in exchange for a twenty minute video appearance from Trump,meanwhile the president's former campaign chairman is under indictment and his former national security adviser has pleaded guilty to lying to investigators his son-in-law (Jared Kushner, to the right) and other associates are also under investigation!

This is your PRESIDENT ladies and gentlemen this is how Donald Trump does business and these are the kinds of people he surrounds himself with. Mr. Trump spent his career in the company of developers and celebrities and also of grifters con sharks goons and crooks he cuts corners he lies he cheats he brags about it and for the
most part he's gotten away with it protected by threats of litigation hush money and his own bravado those methods may be proving to have their limits when they are applied from the Oval Office the Republican leaders in Congress still keep a cowardly silence.

Mr. Trump now has real reason to be afraid, a raid on a lawyer's office doesn't happen every day, it means that multiple government
officials and a federal judge had reason to believe that they'd find evidence of a crime there and that they didn't trust the lawyer not to destroy that evidence on Monday when he appeared with his national security team Mr. Trump whose motto could be the buck stops anywhere but here angrily blamed everyone he could think of for what he called the unfairness of the investigation that has already consumed the first year of his presidency yet is only now starting to heat up!

He said Attorney General Jeff Sessions (left) made "quote" A very terrible mistake "end quote" by recusing himself from overseeing the investigation the implication being that are more loyal Attorney General would have instructed justice and blocked the investigation. 

He complained about what he called the horrible things that Hillary Clinton did and what he called all of the crimes that were committed he called the A-Team and investigators from the office of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller quote the most biased group of people as for Mr. Mueller himself we'll see what happens Mr. Trump said many people have said you, should fire him, in fact
the raids on the premises used by Mr. Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen were conducted by the public corruption unit of the federal Attorney's Office and Manhattan and at the request not of the special counsels team but under a search warrant that investigators in New York obtained following a referral by
Photo courtesy of The Conservative Treehouse
Mr. Mueller (left) who first consulted with the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (right) to sum up a Republican appointed former FBI director consulted with the Republican appointed Deputy Attorney General who then authorized a referral to an FBI field office not known for its anti-trump bias deep state indeed Mr. Trump also railed against the authorities who he said broke into Mr. Cohen's office, attorney-client privilege is dead the president tweeted early this morning during what was presumably his executive time.

He's wrong the privilege is one of the most sacrosanct in the American legal system but it does not protect communications in furtherance of a crime anyway one might ask if this is all a big witch-hunt and Mr. Trump has nothing illegal or untoward to hide why does he care about the privilege in the first place? The answer is of course he has a lot to hide this wasn't even the first early morning raid of a close Trump associate that distinction goes to Paul Manafort (right) Mr. Trump's former campaign chairman and Russian oligarch whisperer who now faces a slate of federal charges long enough to land him in prison for the rest of his life and what of Mr. Cohen he's already been cut loose by his law firm and when the charges start rolling in he'll likely get the same treatment from Mr. Trump the grotesqueries that faded into the background of Mr. Trump's carnival of misgovernment during the past 24 hours was that Monday's meeting was ostensibly called to discuss a matter of global significance a reported chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians Mr. Trump instead made it about him with his narcissistic and self pitying claim that the investigation represented an attack on the country in Trump's word in a true sense. 

Photo courtesy of Unveiled Secrets and Messages of Light
No Mr. Trump a true attack on America is what happened on say September 11 2001 remember that one thousands of people lost their lives your response was to point out that the fall of the Twin Towers meant your building was now the tallest in downtown Manhattan, of course that also wasn't true!

Wow this is just I mean this is beyond insane it is just beyond insane let me tell you something else about Michael Cohen I didn't know this until today Michael Cohen was and as far as I know he hasn't been fired yet he was the deputy National Finance Chairman of the Republican Party, guess who was the National Finance Chairman not deputy but the national plan Steve Wynn(below).

Remember him, the Las Vegas thug who was fired because of multiple charges of sexual predation against him, what the Fuck is wrong with the Republican Party and they still, well don't don't even ask that question Mike and they still remain silent! These sons of bitches like this, little snarky Paul Ryan and this turtle looking Mitch McConnell they say nothing!

I remember listening to Mike back in maybe 2005, he was aired through Air America radio, his show was usually on late night, I would stay up just to listen to his show, think I may have even called once but never got through. His show was aired through AM 760 Boulder's Progressive Talk.

I started on this post April 12th, but it can be very difficult to snag up the transcript then have to edit it to make a story of it, I have already spent over 6 hours building this post and out of simple laziness will post Part 2 in the comment section below, I am Happy to see Mike is still around and bringing Truth to Light. I am getting a bit tired of waiting to see what Mueller's investigation will have to show, I like many others have to simply wait and see, what are your thoughts?
