From the day he entered the race, Joe Biden was the great hope of the Democratic establishment to spare them from the horrifying prospect of a 2020 race between The Donald and Bernie Sanders.

Today, that same establishment wants Joe out of the race.

Why has Biden suddenly become an albatross?

His feeble debate performances and fifth-place finish in New Hampshire all but ensure Joe will not be the nominee, and if he stays in, he will siphon off votes in Nevada and South Carolina that would go to candidates who might put together a majority and stop Sanders.

The panic of the establishment is traceable to the new political reality.

With popular-vote victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders has largely united the left-wing of his party and displaced Biden as the front-runner and favorite for the nomination.

Meanwhile, the non-socialist wing of the party has failed to coalesce around a champion to stop Sanders and is becoming ever more splintered.

In Nevada, Sanders now has three moderate challengers.

Biden, “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg, who ran second in New Hampshire, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who ran third and took votes that might have given Buttigieg a win in the Granite State.

Biden, Buttigieg and Klobuchar are all now headed for the Nevada caucuses on Feb. 22, where Sanders is favored. And all three will be going on to South Carolina, a state into which billionaire Tom Steyer has poured millions of dollars.

Sanders, however, is not without his own problems.

Not only is he anathema to the establishment, he cannot wholly unite his party’s left-wing until his senatorial soulmate Elizabeth Warren gets out. Though she ran a poor fourth in New Hampshire, Warren is also going to Nevada to offer herself as a unity candidate.

But as Biden’s hour is up, so is hers. And if she is not out of the race before Super Tuesday on March 3, she risks being beaten in her own home state of Massachusetts.

Where does this leave the Democratic field?

Two candidacies, Warren’s and Biden’s, are in hospice care.

Two candidates, Buttigieg and Klobuchar, competing to be the moderate alternative to Sanders, are in danger of canceling each other out.

Two candidates, Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer, are billionaires who will be battling on Super Tuesday to crush the scourge of billionaires, Bernie Sanders.

Bloomberg, the three-term mayor of New York, upon whom the establishment has begun to look like the last best hope of stopping Sanders, has already dumped a third of a billion dollars into his campaign

His poll numbers have risen accordingly, and he is probably the strongest challenger to Sanders now, because, with his $60 billion fortune, he can sustain himself and his organization through the convention.

But would Sanders lose gracefully to a plutocrat who deployed his billions to deny him a nomination Sanders has sought for half a decade?

Would Bernie Bros, who believe they were cheated out of the nomination in 2016, accept defeat and support a billionaire they believe robbed them of a prize they thought they had won fairly?

ORDER IT NOW

Bloomberg is now facing more serious matters as a candidate in a party of minorities. Here is an excerpt from an audiotape of Mayor Mike at a 2015 conference in Aspen, Colorado, addressing the crime-fighting tactic of stop and frisk that he used for years as mayor.

“Ninety-five percent of your murders and murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male minorities, 15 to 25,” said Bloomberg.

“One of the unintended consequences is people say, ‘Oh, my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana that are all minorities.’ Yes, that’s true. Why? Because we put all the cops in minority neighborhoods. … Why do we do it? Because that is where all the crime is. … And the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.”

Midweek, it was learned that Bloomberg, during the economic crisis in 2008, said that getting rid of “redlining” — a policy by which bankers routinely deny mortgages to low-income largely minority neighborhoods circled in red as risky — was to blame for the collapse.

In remarks at Georgetown University in 2008, Bloomberg said:

“It all started back when there was a lot of pressure on banks to make loans to everyone. … Redlining …was the term where banks took whole neighborhoods and said, ‘People in these neighborhoods are poor, they’re not going to be able to pay off their mortgages, tell your salesmen don’t go into those areas.'”

In presidential elections, Democratic candidates win 90-95% of the black vote. After revelations of his candid discussions of the merits of redlining and the benefits of stop and frisk, Bloomberg may have a tough time climbing that hill.

That may be why Mr. Buchanan tries to whitewash the admitted outright cheating in 2016: “Would Bernie Bros, who believe they were cheated out of the nomination in 2016 …”

  3. Pat leaves out of the equation that Mayor Mike also was photographed with Jeffrey Epstein and his Madam Ghislane. Where ever Epstein actually is today, he has to be smiling at his role in the upcoming election. A good tweet on Twitter asked today can’t the Democrats agree to nominate someone who does not appear in an Epstein picture. That is the better measure of American society today. Jimmy Carter said we are an oligarchy. If candidates for President from both major parties are in Epstein pictures, we know the true state of America.

    How about moving to Sweden since it should be a Jew free paradise? Oh wait you can’t post freely in Sweden since you can go to jail there for simply posting racial crime statistics.

    Oh and we have two Jews running for President and they are working against each other. Jews are supposedly this crafty conspiring global group and they can’t even pick a single Jew for President.

    Bernie in the primaries is a great outcome. It will force the DNC to steal the nomination from him a second time.

  9. “Sanders now has three moderate challengers.”

    No. There two flavors of Democrat candidates, the extremists and the radicals. Free health care for illegals when we can’t even afford it for our own citizens is an extreme position, yet all of them endorsed it. Ending fossil fuel use in a decade is a radical position. There are no moderates in the Democratic party. None.

  10. Bloomberg should have gone the other direction and owned up to stop and frisk.

    The fact that he is trying to grovel shows that he doesn’t understand Blacks or liberals.

    If you get on your knees for liberals they will just continue to shame you for their own egos. If you stand by your position it confuses them and they just move on.

    Blacks don’t buy into apologies from White people and assume most Whites are lying. It’s mostly White liberals that are offended by stop and frisk. Black workers in these areas are sick of the gangs.

    Pat had a front row seat to the debacle in Chicago in 1968. He should book another front row seat in 2020.

    2) when Bernie gets squeezed out again, he may run third party. Then one could imagine Pierre Delecto/ Bill Weld might run. How many Chamber of Commerce Republicans could they win? Would that offset Bernie’s effect on the Dem candidate ? Would all four be allowed in the debate stage ? Will Trump even bother to debate ?

  14. In Nevada, Sanders now has three moderate challengers.
    Biden, “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg, who ran second in New Hampshire, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar,

    What has happened to this country? How can a fruitcake-as-president be a ‘moderate’ choice?

    It really needs to be hammered home that Bernie has the best chance (Perhaps a near certainty) to beat Trump in the general election. And, of course, Bernie would have won in 2016. The establishment Democrats shouldn’t be able to say anything on the internet without people throwing this in their faces.

    Any attempt by the DNC to interfere with Bernie gaining the nomination puts into context what they really hate about Trump.

    But both Trump and Sanders are anomalies and even throwbacks. Neither represents an incipient force in American politics that shows much evidence of seeing any other champions once they are gone from the scene. For 40 years people with any kind of humanity have been systematically purged from the political machines in the Western world’s mainstream parties. We have run out of politicians.

    Can populist political forces emerge in the US with a first past the post system and a federal structure? I mean, there has been long enough time for American politicians to adopt populist policies but there is little evidence of this even for things which should be utterly uncontroversial like banking regulations.

    Has America’s new oligarchy simply grown too powerful?

Or the laws that special interest have their bought legislators write to allow them to squirrel trillions in small Caribbean islands.

    No, Buchanan like the Establishment Dems have made invisible half the population that live in desperation eking out a living from day-to-day with no prospect of finding a good paying job, especially in a rural county.

    Bernie Sanders speaks to those fears, whether he can deliver is another thing. One should read “The Iron Heel” by Jack London to see what is in store for Sanders should he win.

    There are problems in the American health care system, BUT, comparisons to other countries is off-base. If you need a CT scan or other high-tech procedure here in the USA, you will get one, almost immediately.

    In addition, ANYONE who shows up at a hospital emergency room WILL be treated without consideration of “who will pay the bill”. This is the case in ALL medical facilities that have emergency rooms and urgent care centers in the United States, and is mandated by law.

    Our neighbor to the north, which has excellent medical staff, routinely rations CT scans and other high-tech procedures, as these machines and procedures are far less available due to cost considerations. You might have to wait 3 months for the same CT scan in Canada.

    A number of years ago, Canadian hospitals were caught providing CT scans for veterinarians’ animals, while humans were on waiting lists for use of the machines. You see, veterinarians paid cash “up front” for use of the machines.

    A dirty little secret of Canadian health care, is that some patients are referred to American border-city hospitals for treatment if they squawk loud enough. In addition, Canadian politicians and movers and shakers routinely come to the United States for medical treatment.

    Look at Great Britain’s National Health Service which routinely rations health care as well as exacting death sentences on humans because of cost. Recently, a British subject (baby) was refused potentially life-saving treatment not only in Great Britain, but also in the United States. The parents had the money to pay for the treatment here in the United States, but Britain’s National Health Service would not allow the baby to leave. A similar situation is unfolding, as the “National Health Service” refuses to allow the parents to take their child to Italy for treatment. What kind of health-care is that?

    Socialized health care is fine for cuts, scrapes, and bruises, but when it comes to high-tech procedures, there are always cost considerations. Anyone can see that government-imposed solutions almost never work.

    It is interesting to note, that in Canada, Great Britain, and other “socialized medicine” countries, private supplemental health insurance is necessary in order to receive decent medical treatment.

    The problem is not health care, but health INSURANCE and HMOs – Health Maintenance Organizations, which artificially mask the true costs of health care. “Health insurance” should be for catastrophic claims, not routine medical procedures.

    Going back to a “fee for services” like in the pre-HMO days of medicine would be an improvement as there would be competition for health care services.

    Two good examples of successful “fee for services” medicine are plastic surgery and laser refractive surgery (eyes). Both plastic surgeons and ophthalmologists offer discounts for their procedures. In fact, prices for these procedures are constantly dropping.

    A good distinction can be made between HMOs and automobile insurance.
    Automobile insurance pays for accidents and damage to vehicles, nothing more. If automobile insurance were run like HMOs, they would pay for vehicle maintenance,oil-changes and the like.

    Yes, the American health-care system needs improvement, but socialized medicine is not the right approach.

    Financing tied to billionaire activist George Soros is a common yet largely under-reported theme among organizations that lead or support the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign attempting to delegitimize the Jewish state.

    In January, Israel released a list of 20 BDS-supporting organizations whose members will be banned from entering Israel due to their BDS activism, prominently featuring six American groups. At least four of the six BDS-promoting U.S. groups receive funding tied to Soros. Scores of other U.S. organizations that support the BDS movement are financed by Soros.

    The IslamoSoros is one of the biggest funders of open borders & mass-Muslim migration. This is directly from his core Islamic belief of Jihad against Infidels. He wants Christian nations to become weaker so they cannot resist Muslim conquest.

As Tucker Carlson said, Bloomie’s policies as NYC mayor saved black lives, and it was a much safer city then. He should be proud of that rather than begging for forgiveness. The last poll numbers in South Carolina I’ve seen show his numbers rising as Biden, lowering himself with his pandering to blacks, along with his cringeworthy attempts to talk their lingo, is cratering.

    It is evident that you have never dealt with the American medical system.

    It takes a little “work”, but it is not only possible, but is easy to get discounted and even “free” medical services.

    Yes, even today it is not only possible, but is advisable to talk to the hospital and doctor’s billing departments about charges if you disagree with them or if you have problems with payment.

    The “dirty little secret” is that, if you agree to a “payment plan” you are obligated for the total agreed-upon charges, BUT you can pay them as little as $5 per month and they will leave you alone and not dun you for more.

    Being involuntarily unemployed and not having health insurance for a while, I was able to get substantial discounts for medical services after explaining my situation.

    In some cases, the charges were totally waived.

    This was not only for routine doctor visits, but for procedures performed in major medical centers. My primary care physician halved his charges and then some.

    In many cases, you will get the “discounted” rate-the rate at which insurers and hospitals agree upon.

    No, I did not avail myself of the medicaid system, but was considered to be a “private pay” patient.

    For your information, president Trump is requiring hospitals to publicly submit lists of charges “for services rendered”. The hospitals are not happy about this, but will go along.

    The 1965 immigration act was signed by Texan Anglo President LBJ. Lead supporter in congress was Ted Kennedy, also not Jewish.

    no, but it’s the people behind the scenes who make it happen.

    Dr. Kevin MacDonald has done very exhaustive work in demonstrating that the 1965 immigration act was a consequence of Jewish supremacist evolutionary strategy. Their agenda, (where ever they’re at in Christian, white lands), is always, always to push for non-white hegemony and ascendancy.

    All any fool has to do, it look at Jewish Hollywood to see the id of the Jewish supremacist in all its anti-White, dripping hatred.

    Or just check out the way the Jews of the last century treated their Gentile victims, from the Holodomor, to Bela Kun’s Hungary, and on and on. Their murderous, genocidal hatred is beyond legendary, and there were over a hundred million victims of their supremacism unleashed in the last century alone.

    Not all Jews are Jewish supremacists, and many of them are fine people, even some like Stephan Miller seem to have white America’s back.

    But if you’re looking at the Democrat Party, or even the Republican party, (with J-Supremacists like Sheldon Adelson, et al) the supremacists are always demanding unlimited immigration into all white countries. They even seem to be more unhinged in their demands for white genocide, than even destroying all Muslim nations that are inconvenient to Israel.

    As for the supreme court, and the treasonous rulings, yes Sir! You’ll get no argument from me, that there are armies of white, male cucks out there, all pushing and shoving to prove their anti-white cred.

    And no one should give them an inch. They’re even a thousand times worse than the Jewish supremacists, because at least the J-supremacists are serving their tribe as they see it, whereas the white cucks are betraying theirs.

    Neither group should be given a pass. White men, black men, Jews and Jewish supremacists, Muslims, Hispanics and La Raza, all deserve scrutiny, when it comes to the enemies of this republic, and its people.

    Right now, however, the biggest threats to this Republic and our civilization, are the Eternal Wars for Israel, and the armies of invaders descending upon the West, and seeking to feast and dance on its carcass.

    And if you want to know whom are behind those twin pillars of our destruction, it is almost hands down, Jewish supremacists, and their goyim lackeys, like John McCain [rot in Hell], and others like Mitt and Marco and Paul Ryan, and so many others.

You’re like Ann Coulter on this one where you take the easy and cowardly path and blame the non-Jewish white guy.

    Ted Kennedy authored the act out of rich white racial guilt while Celler authored it out of Jewish racial hatred of white gentiles and because Jews feel more secure in multiracial societies.

    The Jerusalem Post credits Celler with his 40 year effort to overturn the “national origin” system which was designed to keep America an Anglo-Saxon nation and supermajority white:

    no, but it’s the people behind the scenes who make it happen.

    This is exactly the problem with Jew hating. You have to explain away the actions of White leftists and end up arguing that they are not responsible for their own actions. What you end up doing is letting them off the hook by blaming Jews. LBJ was racially aware and chose to sign that legislation when he could have veto’d it. A Jew was not holding a gun to his head when he signed it.

    I keep running into this exact problem here at Unz. I point out the anti-White actions by White leftists and the Unz Joo hatin’ club tells me it was actually Jews the whole time even when White leftists articulate exactly why they took said actions.

    You also keep avoiding France and Sweden. Why has Sweden let in so many Arabs? Are you going to blame that on the Jews? Which ones exactly? What about Greece? How did socialists ever gain a majority in Greece when Hitler killed off their tiny Jewish population?

    What exactly is your solution? Get rid of Jews? Why isn’t Sweden dominated by nationalists then?

    This is anti-rational thinking. According to the Joo Hatin’ club here the Jews are to blame for leftism and even in far-left countries like Sweden where they practically don’t exist. Gee whiz could there perhaps be a more common factor like……I don’t know….how about….leftism? That’s a much better explanation than Jew ghosts that somehow control the thoughts of not only LBJ but also Swedish and French politicians.

    Bernie will never run third party. His base is only roughly 50% of the Dems (based on his current polling plus Fauxcahontas’). His running third party would rightly be seen as a gift to Trump. Plus Bernie doesn’t have the courage.

    When (not if, but when) the DNC steals the nomination from Bernie and gives it to some Ruling Class oligarch or other, Bernie will be a good soldier and fall in line because to do otherwise would elect Trump. Bernie’s base will be irate and a good proportion will either not vote or vote for Trump (the only non-Ruling Class candidate available).

    And the Republican base is 98% Trumpist. Look at the Iowa primaries. People turned out in massive numbers for an essentially uncontested primary and almost none of them voted for the other guys. Let Egg McMuffin run. Let that drunk from Massachusetts run. The Republican base will turn out and vote in massive numbers for Trump.

    Conclusion: Most recent presidents have won a second term. Trump will too, particularly given the weakness of the current Dem field. The DNC should let Bernie have the nomination. Trump will win in a massive landslide (not Reagan-Mondale levels because of illegal immigration, but still big). And then the DNC can point at their commie wing and say “see, you guys can’t win in the general election.”

    You could be right there, depending partly on (1) whether the establishment media decides to let sanders lose or pushes him and (2) who his running mate is.

    I must admit that if the us gov would help ALL of us with a universal basic income — including us net taxpayers instead of just the permanent poor underclass — that might not be so bad. Depends how it is funded and whether eligibility is properly limited (e.g., perhaps no UBI for violent felons).

    I mean, since returning the fed gov to its constitutional functions seems to be out of the question, let’s at least spend the taxed and borrowed money on US citizens here at home, rather than wars, occupations, and overpriced military contracts.

    Of course, a UBI combined with mass immigration from poorer countries could collapse the system sooner than it it is already likely to collapse. Given his prior comments about mass immigration and its effect on regular working Americans, the old Bernie Sanders surely would have recognized this too.

Millions of Americans earn their incomes from the military/security economy. Voting them out of their jobs would cause a civil war.

    As for NON-catastrophic medical costs — checkups, screening and diagnostic procedures like X-rays and MRIs and CT scans, dental cleanings and fillings, most prescriptions — a universal basic income could be sufficient for a large majority of Americans to cover themselves (even at current inflated prices). By no means a complete solution, as for one thing it does not address the exorbitant prices that docs and hospitals charge for uncomplicated and often cursory perfunctory visits (such as simpler ER visits).

    Nor would a meaningfully large UBI be cheap in its own right, just want to point ouat a UBI could and surely would be used to defray out-of-pocket medical expenses that many of us have trouble paying now.

    Catastrophic medical costs like major surgery and end-of-life nursing-home care are much larger and pose a continuing problem even with a sizeable UBI.

    By the way, I spent a lot of time in Canada with an ex who is a Canadian citizen, and she was unable to get an MRI without scheduling a couple months in advance and then driving a long way to find one of the shockingly few such machines in all of Chinese I mean British Columbia.

    In any event, if we give out “free” medical care to noncitizens, including (tens of?) millions of illegal aliens as the democrats say they want, no medical system will be sustainable. When Mister UBI Andrew Yang raised his hand for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, I knew he was not the reasonable and “non-left non-right” voice he claimed to be.

    Yes, Mel, I fear that is quite plausible if we don’t take careful and short-term-costly steps to minimize the economic and political disruption.

    However, can we not give a very generous long-term severance package to all civilian pentagon employees and military-contractor employees who are laid off? Wouldn’t this be worth it to lessen the chance of such widespread violence?

    Also, wouldn’t our new federal-government weapons development and manufacturing agency hire most of the people now working for military contractors? There’s no reason for the real scientists, engineers, and such doing the R and D to be let go. And we would have the new agency keep operating all the same factories, promising no cuts in pay, benefits, or pensions.

    The people really hit in the pocketbook would be a relatively small group of wealthy people who are large shareholders in military companies, and a very small coterie of military lobbyists.

    Of course, those people have serious connections and money and would not go quietly into that good night.

    People know and they are sick of it. Morons who can’t make these connections either need to go away and read or they need to check their honesty quotient. Read several thousand years of history; what keeps popping up? Jews pulled this stunt (genocided 250k Cypriot greeks). Then they pulled another stunt. And so on.

    Agree. The malignant dwarf should have loudly trumpeted:
    1. That blacks are the primary victims of these gangs.
    2. The vast majority of black families (that word matters) want the violence stopped.
    3. The vast majorities of those whingeing about the policy have made damn sure they don’t live in black neighborhoods.

    That last one gives room for lots of ammo against bleeding heart shit-libs who live in some whiteopea.

    The US pays twice what other OECD countries pay per capita for worse outcomes. The US pays three times what Israel pays per person. To justify wasting half of the cost on gouging sick people for premiuns, deductions and co-pays is impossible. The US is by far the richest country in the world and other, much poorer countries are getting better outcomes for half the money.

    Would YOU like to be the one who is denied treatment under a “socialized medicine” system because the “cost is too great” or the “outcome“, based solely on “averages” and not on the particular patient might not be ideal?

    In “socialized medicine” societies, real “health care” is always rationed.

    As many warts as the American system has, it still works pretty well…

    Another question for you. If the American health care system is so bad, why do Canadians and many others from other countries come here for treatment?

    In fact, Canadian politicians and “movers and shakers” routinely use the American system. If the Canadian system is so good, why do they come here?

    Of course he signed it. LBJ was a tool of International Jewish supremacism. Duh.

    Oh ok so the Jews made LBJ sign the 1965 immigration act and they also somehow made the Kennedys push it along with all the other Democrats in congress.

    Did the Jews make the all-White male supreme court ignore presented evidence about racial differences in Brown vs Board? What about Lincoln? Was his war against the south caused by Jews?

    The point is the the US has long been rife with non-Jewish egalitarians that are perfectly happy to sacrifice Whites for career gain or to simply fuel their sense of moral superiority. These egalitarians have no interest in truth and only want power over their enemies. LBJ was just another White leftist holy roller that followed the same tradition.

    This is also true in other countries that have few to no Jews. So while I have acknowledged disproportionate Jewish influence in leftist activities (in relation to population size) I have a serious problem with believing that someone like LBJ or Stalin was merely in the tool of Jew ghosts.

    Because what that treasonous POS did, when our sailors were under cowardly attack, and somehow managed to get a distress call out to the Sixth Fleet, president Johnson ordered the jets (that had been scrambled to assist the Liberty)

    Are you thinking I am defending Johnson in any way? He should have been saluted for his service and then dropped in the jungles of Vietnam.

    Sweden and France, (all their hysterical lies about human rights to the contrary), pledges fealty to a murderous, terrorist, racial supremacist Nazi-type rogue nation, or else.

    So you are saying that Israel is to blame for leftists in Sweden and France?

    Sweden and France had socialists before Israel was even a state. Well before communism it was Napoleon that went on a murderous rampage in the name of secularism and equality. Read about how many Spaniards died because he wanted to “free” their unequal state that recognized the authority of the Catholic church. Then he went over to Russia and did the same thing. Killing for equality and without the help of Jews.

    LBJ had a huge debt to pay. He was without a doubt involved up to his neck in the Kennedy Assassination that made him President. He spent the rest of his life dancing to the tune of his handlers. He would have signed a warrant to arrest his own mother. You don’t think the Jews had any involvement in the hit on Kennedy? The man that shot Oswald wasn’t named Jack Ruby. His real name was Jacob Leon Rubenstein, a Jew.

    Do you really think people are so stupid as to not recognize that many of the people that do the bidding of the Jews are people that have been compromised by the Jews? Do you really think you can be successful in deflecting suspicion away from the Jews by pointing out that a man that had to do the bidding of the Jews was himself not Jewish?

    If you read my comment #54, you might just be enlightened…
    Since you haven’t read it, I will repeat it…

    For one, your name-calling is childish and juvenile…

    It is evident that you have never dealt with the American medical system.

    NO ONE will be refused service in an American emergency room for the inability to pay. BY LAW, you will be treated. If further treatment is needed and you have the inability to pay, YOU WILL be covered under one of the state medicaid programs.

    It takes a little “work”, but it is not only possible, but is easy to get discounted and even “free” medical services.

    Yes, even today it is not only possible, but is advisable to talk to the hospital and doctor’s billing departments about charges if you disagree with them or if you have problems with payment.

    The “dirty little secret” is that, if you agree to a “payment plan” you are obligated for the total agreed-upon charges, BUT you can pay them as little as $5 per month and they will leave you alone and not dun you for more.

    Being involuntarily unemployed and not having health insurance for a while, I was able to get substantial discounts for medical services after explaining my situation.

    In some cases, the charges were totally waived.

    This was not only for routine doctor visits, but for procedures performed in major medical centers. My primary care physician halved his charges and then some.

    In many cases, you will get the “discounted” rate-the rate at which insurers and hospitals agree upon.

    No, I did not avail myself of the medicaid system, but was considered to be a “private pay” patient.

    For your information, president Trump is requiring hospitals to publicly submit lists of charges “for services rendered”. The hospitals are not happy about this, but will go along.

    As to your penchant for name-calling, GROW UP!

    Agreed, I think he killed Kennedy and was one of the worst presidents of all time. His welfare state may have put the country on a path towardstotal destruction. I’m optimistic but it’s entirely possible that the system eventually crashes because of his White-blaming welfare state policies.

    You don’t think the Jews had any involvement in the hit on Kennedy? The man that shot Oswald wasn’t named Jack Ruby. His real name was Jacob Leon Rubenstein, a Jew.

    It’s possible. But I don’t blame LBJ on the Jews. He was in full control of his own actions.

    Do you really think you can be successful in deflecting suspicion away from the Jews by pointing out that a man that had to do the bidding of the Jews was himself not Jewish?

    It is Jew hating that deflects the responsibility of White leftists.

    A lot of our problems today come from Lincoln not trying to find a peaceful resolution with the South and instead sent the young sons of fine citizens off to gruesome deaths. That had nothing to do with the Jews and in fact Lincoln privately didn’t believe in racial equality.

    Whites unfortunately create their own authoritarian egalitarians without the Jews. It was an Irish Texan candidate that actually wanted to kick in doors and take AR-15s. We have another candidate that pretended to be an Indian and made a career out of lecturing White students on race.

    I see the focus here on Jews as unhealthy and unproductive. If the plan is “get rid of Jews” that doesn’t make sense when Sweden and German agents are here right now and their countries have very few Jews.

    If Whites acted as a rational voting bloc sans Jews then you might have a point but that isn’t the case. Whites have a proclivity towards egalitarianism which is likely genetic in origin. Every so often a corrupt politician like LBJ takes advantage of that proclivity and sells them on egalitarian fiction.

    I had White leftists lie to me at a young age so a lot of this is personal to me. I’m not going to look back and give them a pass just because Unz likes to scream JEWS. I have relatives in Europe that would be terrified to post here or even visit.

    Whites create their own destructive egalitarians. There are undoubtedly German and Swedish government agents in this forum monitoring their own citizens for reading this forum. It is illegal in those countries to post about race outside of the accepted leftist context, regardless of what is true or not. Hallo Regierung!

    I do sympathise with your irratition with some of the knee-jerk “the Jews, the Jews” we get here at Unz .

    Thankfully most of the Unz writers try to put Zionist issues into wider contexts.
    Dealing with “Jewish” questions is complex & must be nuanced.

    I think AIPAC influence is a legitimate concern but not even in the top 50 of our problems. I don’t support military aid to Israel but it’s a blip on the budget.

    I see very few nuanced views here and people that are anti-globalist often encourage the opposition when blaming Jews.

    When White nationalists chanted “Jews will not replace us” on television there were a lot of comments from people that wondered why they would be so stupid to believe that a small religious minority would somehow outbreed White Christians. This shows that White nationalists really don’t understand the public. The media in fact was able to use them in support of the establishment (looky at these bad Whites, that’s why we need liberalism).

    I have been around too many White leftists to believe that Jews are the problem. A leftist like Warren doesn’t care about the truth. You could force her to read every article here and she wouldn’t change her politics one bit. If anything it would reinforce her belief that alt-right (for lack of a better term) needs to be controlled.

    White leftists like Edwards know the whole thing is a lie. They still believe that lying to the public is better than being honest about race. They are not pawns of Jews. They truly believe that turning the US into Brazil is best way to solve equality. Interbreed everyone even it means lower standards. That is the plan and they don’t give a flying fudge if anyone here were to enlighten them on what they don’t know. Their politics are not based in truth and this is why it is silly to blame their actions on Jewish indoctrination when there is nothing you could say that would change them. They would in fact send you off to a camp if they could for questioning them.

    Sorry but your experience is just as limited.

    Yes you can run up short term debt but at some point they want cash up front. You can get ER treatment but you can’t see a specialist or get medication.

    It’s actually a myth that you can just switch to medicaid by becoming poor. It can be a long process and the gov doesn’t care if you need treatment asap. Some states like Kansas have turned down medicaid expansion out of ideological spite for the ACA.

    Then there is the problem of retired people on medicare not be able to afford their medication. Some of these drug companies have billions in cash on hand but keep their prices high because our gov is too weak to stand up to them.

    The whole system is a mess. Republicans are wrong for supporting the private system. I’m not saying that Democrats have all the answers but the status quo is unacceptable. Republicans need to divorce themselves from Wall St. and take a hard look at health care.

    Stupid? Several of us at the time said that this was all a part of the Charlottesville show. The youthfulness, preppy attire, choreography, and feigned intensity of the torchlight show choir — left oddly undisturbed while the scary movie was made — contrasted strikingly with the routing of the schlubs the next day.

    Rubenstein, aka Jack Ruby was the front man for a mob boss and was owner, at least on paper, of the Carousel Club in Dallas during the late 50 and early 60’s. He was tasked with the killing of Oswald so there is no “perhaps” to it if one wants to answer the question of Jewish involvement in the Kennedy assassination. The big question would be to what extent the Jews were involved. Many people wanted Jack Kennedy dead but I suspect the thing that sealed his fate was the fact that he intended to end the Fed and print dollars without Jewish debt attached to our money. This the Jews would not allow. He was also opposed to Israel getting the bomb so that was another reason the Jews wanted him dead.

    I have to agree with you that many of the seemingly intractable problems America has at present can be laid at the feet of Lincoln. But claiming that Jews had nothing to do with the American Civil War is naive and inaccurate at best and disingenuous at worst. Jews owned many of the New England shipping companies that inundated this country with cheap slaves that were readily bought by the South. A Nineteenth Century Captain that got a ship and went “black birding” was almost sure to make his fortune. But, after creating the problem, the Northerners pushed for a Civil War as a resolution. This was the true beginning of the monster called the Federal Government that is with us to this day and plunged us into the worse war we ever had.

    I realize it is difficult to diagnose the mental issues of a man that died almost a hundred years before I was born but Lincoln, while certainly a genius, was also mentally unstable and probably bipolar. He has been reinvented so many times and his faults whitewashed to such an extent that is is difficult to find the true man among the myth. But I see him more as a tyrant than as the great Emancipator.

    Or it could be a result of Christianity. Go back before Christianity, were the classical Greek and Roman civilisations egalitarian? Roman civilisation was based on slavery.

    Egalitarianism is not a bad thing in itself. Unfortunately the “Left” has largely abandoned economic egalitarianism in favour of Social Justice (Social Justice being much more to the liking of plutocrats). We need more economic egalitarianism and less Social Justice.
