Final numbers of the Nevada Democrat Caucus: Sanders resoundingly finished in first, Joe Biden a distant second, Pete Buttigieg in third and Elizabeth Warren in fourth place.
President Trump weighed in on Sanders’ win, congratulating him and hoping that he would be treated fairly by the Democrat party.
Sanders is building a strong socialist populist movement which has pushed him into the frontrunner position in the race for the Democrat nomination. Buttigieg and Biden both are sounding warning bells about what a Sanders nomination would do to the Democrat party.
In a surprising twist to Russian meddling in US elections, Russia has shown interest, not only in President Trump’s campaign but also in Sanders’ campaign.
Russian meddling and disinformation
The Sanders campaign was briefed by intelligence officials a month ago that Russia was intervening on his behalf. Sanders rebuffed the idea and warned Russia and other foreign powers to stay out of US elections.
“Let’s be clear, the Russians want to undermine American democracy by dividing us up and, unlike the current president, I stand firmly against their efforts, and any other foreign power that wants to interfere in our election. I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president. My message to Putin is clear: stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”
President Trump was not briefed
President Trump said he was not briefed on Russian interference in the Sanders campaign, nor was he briefed about interference in his own campaign.
Reportedly, the President is angry because Adam Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee were briefed before he knew anything about it. He has accused Adam Schiff of leaking the information about the Sanders campaign to the press.
In an op-ed piece in USA Today, Attorney General William Barr, FBI Director Christopher Wray and multiple other senior administration officials urged the public to be vigilant for threats to elections. The infrastructure of voting in the states is not affected by these hostile foreign governments.
Disinformation is the big threat from Russia, China and Iran according to Barr, Wray, and others. Sanders mentioned this in one of his speeches, saying that the disinformation is meant to divide us as a nation.
The real threat
If disinformation is the threat, then the Russians can’t hold a candle to the Democrat party and their willing accomplices CNN and MSNBC, the Washington Post, The New York Times, and other news outlets.
They have managed to divide the country along party, racial, and gender lines without the aid of the Russians, the Chinese, or Iran. They continue to attack the American people that voted for President Trump. They are drawing racial lines between the states like Iowa and the states that look “more” like America, such as Nevada.
They are still pitting men against women and LGBTQ people against straight people. They continue to call the president a criminal, the most corrupt president, the most dangerous president, without a scintilla of evidence offered for these claims.
The Mueller report cleared the president of collusion with Russia. The House impeached the president without naming any crimes. The Senate acquitted the president. The Horowitz ICIG report corroborated the claims that the FBI abused the FISC to spy on Donald Trump.
The disinformation lives on in the mouths of not just Vladimir Putin, but Democrats like Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Jake Tapper, Chris Cuomo, Rachel Maddow, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, et al.
The Democrat party has the most to gain from divisive politics, and they don’t need Putin’s help.
Update: watch Rep. John Ratcliffe discuss the problem of disinformation and Adam Schiff.
