Bernie Sanders: Trump Is a 'Pathological Liar'

By David Siders, Politico

04 September 18


en. Bernie Sanders on Monday lit into President Donald Trump and his most recent Supreme Court nominee on the eve of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, calling Trump a “pathological liar” who “works night and day on behalf of his fellow billionaires.”

“And most reprehensible, we have a president who is not doing what almost every president in American history has done: When you make it into the Oval Office, you understand you’ve got a sacred responsibility to bring the American people together,” the independent senator from Vermont told a crowd at an AFL-CIO Labor Day breakfast in Manchester, New Hampshire. “Today we have a president who for cheap political reasons is trying to divide us up.”

Sanders’ remarks came ahead of Senate hearings for Kavanaugh, whose confirmation Democrats are expected to bitterly oppose.

“I have no doubt that if he is selected, put into the Supreme Court, the nominee will be an anti-worker justice,” said Sanders, who lost the 2016 Democratic presidential primary to Hillary Clinton. “He will also be an anti-woman justice. We should call him out.”

Sanders was scheduled to hold two rallies in Vermont later Monday, as politicians across the country marked Labor Day with events kicking off the fall political calendar.

On Monday morning, Sanders told labor organizers that America has reached a “pivotal moment” in its history, reprising familiar themes about economic inequality and efforts to fight discrimination.

He said Americans owe the labor movement a “debt of gratitude” not only for their advocacy on worker issues, but for the broader “political struggles” in which they have been at the forefront.

“The union movement today,” he said, “is the last line of resistance to the reactionary corporate agenda.” your social media marketing partner


A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Sanders is correct in what he says about Trump, but it is not only Trump. The major media and some democrats (not Sanders) are trying to divide people up and they, too, are pathological liars. The "Resistance" funded by the DNC, Soros, and Hillary Clinton is all about dividing people and making them go to war against each other. They are intolerant of certain speakers on college campuses. I don't like these speakers either (Yiannapolis, Spencer, Coulter, etc.) but I think I would allow them to speak. We are just not over the bitterness and hatred of the 2016 elections.

American labor is in the bad condition it is in today because of nearly 100 years of massive assault by Capital and its captive agencies in the government. Right now, democrats are all cozy and lovey with the FBI but they seem to have forgotten or are lying about the history of the FBI. It was created with the direct purpose of disrupting labor organizing and socialism in the US in the 1910s. In the 1950s and 60s the FBI helped organized crime to take over labor unions as communists were driven out.

It is time for a rebuilding of the organization of US labor. It needs to be expanded as many unions are now doing. The time is ripe. The Demo party can help but it needs to change. For years, it took labor union money and then double crossed workers in Congress and government in general.

I think this commentary should be read by a wider audience:
