Bloomie took the bait and is releasing some from their NDA. I think that is a mistake; he'll be pressured even more to release all of the NDAs.

I am not judging what he may or may not have done, just what is likely moving forward.


He is screwed. I saw on Fox they were laughing at him. He was just afraid to hit back at the debate. Heís toast.

Should have asked Warren if she wanted them sent to her teepee ⛺️ or something. Instead he just gave in.

Iím wondering, and really have no direct knowledge, if MOST billionaires have NDAs? Take a guy with a good reputation like Buffett or Gates.... Do they have a bunch of these as itís just easier to
pay a few hundred thousand than litigate a frivolous claim? If a guy worth $100k made the same joke Bloomberg did Iíll bet nothing happens. When itís a guy worth $$$$$$$$ the lawyers start circling like sharks.

Pretty sure almost EVERY lawsuit thatís settled comes with a NDA. Certainly true for malpractice cases.

As far as Bloombergís tax returns, if letís say heíd be paid a billion dollars to release them today, heíd be able to release them today. My accountant has my entire return on his computer. Iím sure Bloombergís isnít only kept in paper form. Just push a button and wham, tax return. I think what he meant to say was Ďthere are things I need to redact before I release my returns, and it will take a while for my lawyers to figure out what to redact, and for my campaign manager to fight them over it.Ē

Bernie Sanders calls out MSNBC over campaign coverage

I quote part:

Quote:
Bernie Sanders went ballistic at NBC and MSNBC execs ahead of the Democratic debate this week ó jabbing one top TV exec repeatedly in the face with his finger and accusing the networks of offensive negative coverage.

Surging Sanders stormed through the walk-through for the Las Vegas debate, singling out one top producer at the end and aggressively sticking his finger in his face. One shocked witness said, ďBernie marched right up to NBC and MSNBCís head of creative production and began jabbing his finger right in his face, yelling, ĎYour coverage of my campaign is not fair . . . Your questions tonight are not going to be fair to me.í Ē


Awwwwwwwwwww, poor widdle baby Bernie can't take a little negative press.

I have heard stories that the democrats/DNC will be unable to provide the voting results of the Nevada caucus on Saturday but possibly Sunday at the earliest.

Good grief, and this is the party the libbies here want to control the government, economy, military, foreign policy, education etc etc etc

I think they want to do some spot audits. Actually call people who voted and do some verification as to where they voted and when.

On one hand an audit is a good idea. OTOH we can't waste time digging people up just for that.

Bernie Sanders admitted that he had been informed that there was evidence that Russia had been trying to influence the Democrat primary to help Bernie Sanders! And heís had this information for around a month! And he did not think this was something that he should disclose to the public!

Three house Bernie is such a hypocrite! Now that this info is public, of course he is saying that when he is President, Putin will not be able to influence any American elections! Funny how silent he was during the time that he thought Putin was helping him and the information was not public!!!

Iíve heard the other democrat candidates say, this should not be about Sanders, this should be about Trump! Basically, Sanders is saying I can be as slimy as Trump! We shall see if any of the other democrat candidates jump on this like they should!

How can all of the democrat candidates be this flawed! How could they not have come up with one good candidate? Why canít the only non senile, non socialist candidate (Klobuchar) get any traction?

Because the base of the Democrat Party is nuts. Weíve been pointing it out on here for how long? Thinking there are more than 2 genders. Abortion celebrations. Calling for free college and demanding their student loans be forgiven. Men in ladies rooms as normal. Open borders. On and on.

You get people that support all that and you want a ďnormalĒ candidate? Ainít gonna happen.

Physician, heal thyself.
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.
