Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) delivers a response to President Donald Trump's address to the nation Tuesday night on the shutdown and the President's demand for funding for a wall.
On the Friday after the Chicago Cubs won the World Series and prior to the Tuesday on which the vicious racist and sexist Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, Bernie Sanders spoke to a surprisingly small crowd in Iowa City on behalf of Hillary Clinton. As I learned months later, Sanders told one of his Iowa City friends that day that Mrs. Clinton was in trouble. The reason, Sanders reported, was that Hillary wasn’t discussing issues or advancing real solutions. “She doesn’t have any policy positions,” Sanders said.
Four United States senators are urging a new approach to U.S.-Russian relations based on renewed arms control efforts, but you probably haven’t heard about it from the mainstream media, Gilbert Doctorow and Ray McGovern report.
…Sanders and Kasich were clearly the leaders in the public’s support in 2016; and their positions — and the contrasts between their positions and those of the two winners — are therefore instructive to understand accurately, in order to understand today’s US Presidential politics accurately at a deeper level.
