Biden Campaign Under Fire After Attacking Women's March Organizer Over BDS Support

https://qudsnen.co/biden-campaign-under-fire-after-attacking-prominent-w...

"The campaign of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) presidential nominee, Joe Biden, has been under fire for attacking progressive Palestinian-American march organizer Linda Sarsour after her appearance on a panel of Muslim delegates during the convention. 'She has no role in the campaign whatsoever,' Biden spokesperson, Andrew Bates said in a statement Tuesday night. 'Joe Biden has been a strong supporter of Israel and a vehement opponent of anti-Semitism his entire life, and he obviously condemns her views and opposes BDS, as does the Democratic platform..."

Trump warns of a rigged election as he undercuts the post office

quote:

Jennifer Epps-Addison: The first thing I want to say is progressives are not sitting around waiting to be invited into the conversation or to the table. And so I know there was a lot made about who was speaking, and who wasn’t speaking, but I think people actually should have paid a lot more attention to who was organizing their own events on the side of the convention conversation.

From Linda Sarsour organizing Muslim voters. Our own network had a launch of our United Against Trump, which is a program with lots of progressive organizations and activists across the country who understand our task is to defeat Donald Trump in this election.

So I understand why people made that point, but I want to be clear. Joe Biden clearly has a strategy where he believes that there are enough 2016 Trump voters who are willing to cross over to vote for him in 2020 in order to secure this election. I do not share that analysis, nor do I believe history has born that out. People should remember that Barack Obama won the presidency twice, neither which of those times did he win a majority of white voters. I believe that if a Democrat wins in 2020, it will not be with the support of a majority of white voters.

What does that mean to groups like ours and to Progressives? It’s our community, and it’s our responsibility to help them participate in this election at record numbers. We should anticipate that the Biden administration or the Biden campaign should I say, will not help us with that. They will continue to make choices that play to a constituency that ultimately does not share our values.

And yet we are in the position we’re in, and so we again have to have the right conversations with our communities about what our strategy will be in pushing a Biden administration. And part of that strategy is defeating authoritarianism and this racist regime in Donald Trump in order to get to a place where we can push for co-governance and push our policies forward.

After the DNC & RNC: WE CAN'T BREATHE!

"The people must remain mobilized through the election and beyond. We will not win the change we need at the ballot box. The two candidates of the parties of the billionaires ignore the super-majority of people in the US who support improved Medicare for all, a robust Green New Deal, and an end to inequality and taxation of the wealthy, and end to the never-ending wars and US imperialism.

Neither party is responding to the call to stop racist militarized policing, invest in alternatives to policing while cutting police budgets and democratic community control of the police. No matter who is elected the people must be mobilized in 2021 to make the country ungovernable until the people's demands are met. WE DEFEND:

  • Resistance and uprisings against racism and police violence
  • Education workers opposing dangerous school reopening
  • Organization of rent strikes and against evictions
  • BLM movement everywhere
  • Solidarity with those resisting US imperialist violence
  • Social movements seeking peace and justice.

"President Trump unleashed an especially intense barrage of Twitter messages overnight and Sunday morning, embracing fringe conspiracy theories claiming that the coronavirus death toll has been exaggerated and that street protests are actually an organized coup d’état against him,” the New York Times reports.

“In the weekend blast of Twitter messages, Mr. Trump also embraced a call to imprison Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York, threatened to use force against demonstrators outside the White House, attacked CNN and NPR, embraced a supporter charged with murder, mocked his challenger, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., and repeatedly assailed the mayor of Portland, even posting the mayor’s office telephone number so that supporters could call demanding his resignation.”

Trump encourages North Carolina residents to vote twice to test mail-in system

President Donald Trump suggested that people in North Carolina should vote twice in the November election, once by mail and once in person, escalating his attempts to cast confusion and doubt on the validity of the results.

"So let them send it in and let them go vote, and if their system's as good as they say it is, then obviously they won't be able to vote. If it isn't tabulated, they'll be able to vote," Trump said when asked whether he has confidence in the mail-in system in North Carolina, a battleground state.

"If it's as good as they say it is, then obviously they won't be able to vote. If it isn't tabulated, they'll be able to vote. So that's the way it is. And that's what they should do," he said.....

"I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” Mattis writes. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand—one that all of us should be able to get behind. We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values—our values as people and our values as a nation.” He goes on, “We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”

How Attacks on Trump Help Him To Make His Own Case

"...The publishing of the smear piece seems to have been well coordinated. The Democratic lobby group Vote Vets was running an advertisement with quotes from the Atlantic piece the morning after it was published. There was also a rare Biden press conference designed to amplify the topic. The Atlantic piece was designed to lower the military and veteran support for Trump. The next two months will of course see more such attacks from both sides.

If I had a vote in the election I would give it to neither of the parties or candidates. But it is somewhat disappointing to see how little the Democrats have learned about how Donald Trump's campaigning works and how attacks against him are only helping to make his case. As Matt Taibbi analyses in a must-read piece. The Democratic Party has no message - literally none - apart from him.

Because people have seen Trump as president the last four years.

Not in generations has a sitting president so overtly declared himself the candidate of white America. While Mr. Trump’s campaign sought to temper the culture war messaging at the Republican National Convention last month by showcasing Black and Hispanic supporters who denied that he is a racist, the president himself has increasingly made appeals to the grievances of white supporters a centerpiece of his campaign to win a second term.

Steve M. wrote:
The hot new trend in right-wing commentary is to argue that expressions of concern about Donald Trump stealing the election add up to an effort to start a "color revolution" in the United States, similar to rebellions that have arisen in former Soviet bloc nations. The belief on the right is that the uprisings in former Russian satellites were ginned up by a sinister cabal of left-leaning globalists; right-wingers argue that when we say it might require force to remove Trump from office if he's legitimitely defeated, we're saying it because we want to use force. In August, Michael Brendan Dougherty argued this for National Review, and now we have Miranda Devine of the New York Post making a similar assertion, under the headline "Antifa Riots May Be Part of Democrat Power Grab."

Why a Biden Presidency Will Disappoint Progressive Democrats

"...The ones who would be most disappointed  with a center-right Biden regime will be those 'progressives' who currently support his campaign. At the same time, Biden's foreign policy team is filling up with liberal interventionists from the Obama era, and with neo-conservatives. A Biden win will mean a revival of the war on Syria, no renewal of the nuclear deal with Iran and other hawkish foreign policies.

Sure the policies of a Biden presidency would look more polished and presentable than the boorish ways in which Trump acts. But we can certainly expect that a Biden presidency, won in the election or through the Democrats well planned color-revolution scheme, will be to the right of the center-right policies Barack Obama implemented. This will hold for domestic issues as well as with regards to foreign policy."

That's actually not true. Many progressives who are voting for Biden are under no illusions that he will do anything progressive. Their argument is that Trump represents a unique threat to democracy, that the most urgent matter right now is removing him from office, and then after that they plan to organize to get their priorities implimented. That is why the Movement for a People's Party is resonating right now. Their goal is to build a viable thrid party for the long term. While tapping into the frustration people feel about having to choose between Biden or Trump, they aren't running a candiate for President who can take votes from Biden. This shields them against the criticism that they will only split the vote and re-elect Trump.

If the People's Party runs candidates [i]anywhere[/i], even in the safest Democratic seats in the country, Democrats will accuse them of being the reason Republicans win and double down on their appeal-only-to-the-right strategy.

NDPP

"...The problem with elections is that it's all reduced to personalities based on fear. You vote for Joe Biden because of the fear of Trump. Biden himself is not offering anything other than the kind of continuum that got us into this mess. In fact Biden was one of the architects of neo-liberal policies and endless war. We should be clear. It's not just voting against Trump, you're voting for something.

You know I teach in a prison. We can begin with The Victims of Crime and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 which Biden pushed through and gave over 30 billion dollars to police and prisons. Biden pushed all the death penalty issues. He was one of the architects of NAFTA. He was one of the cheerleaders of the war. He was a segregationist. He's many times called for an assault on social security.

Look, there is no way within the American political system to vote against the interests of Goldman-Sachs. So whether you have the civil and palatable face of Biden or the narcissistic, divisive racist rants of Trump, the actual system of corporate power is untouched. Let's be clear. Biden was selected by the Democratic Oligarchic elite figures like Lloyd Blankfein and others who made very public that if Bernie Sanders was the nominee, they would vote for Trump..."

Jesse Ventura is a major player in this movement, and I think his involvement is crucial. I think he can win over Republican voters who vote Republican mainly because of resentment of the Democrats as the Estbalishment.
