Bernie Sanders Faces Challenges from Deep State Billionaires

VT Writer Kevin Barrett on Press TV


US Senator Bernie Sanders will face a major challenge from Zionist and Saudi billionaires during his presidential election campaign over his pro-Palestinian views and for revealing “taboo truths”, an American scholar says.

During a town hall meeting on Tuesday in Nevada, Sanders, the leading Democratic presidential candidate, condemned Saudi Arabia’s regime, calling the country’s leaders “murderous thugs.”

“For years, we have loved Saudi Arabia – our wonderful ally; the only problem is the people who run that country are murderous thugs,” Sanders said.

The Vermont senator described Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as a “billionaire dictator.”

“He is far better than most of the rest of them and one wonders whether he will get away with this attitude if he actually manages to become president, or whether like Donald Trump, his truth-telling during the campaign will be curtailed and he’ll be forced to toe the line and follow the policies of the deep state,” said Kevin Barrett, an author, journalist and radio host with a Ph.D.  in Islamic and Arabic Studies.

“Bernie Sanders has a chance to actually win, assuming that the very powerful forces aligned against him, led by the billionaires, including the billionaire thugs in Saudi Arabia and their friends over in Israel are unable to find a way to cheat him of the White House,” Barrett told Press TV on Thursday.

“He was cheated in 2016 by Hillary Clinton and the DNC (Democratic National Committee) is run by the same type of Zionist billionaires who definitely are not going to lay down and let Bernie get into the White House easily,” Barrett added.

During the town hall meeting, Sanders also slammed Israel’s policies against the Palestinian people and pointed to the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip.

“To be for the Israeli people and to be for peace in the Middle East does not mean that we have to support right-wing, racist governments that currently exist in Israel”.

Sanders made similar remarks during a presidential debate in December when he called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “racist” and said US foreign policy cannot be only pro-Israel but must be “pro-Palestinian” as well.

“Take a look at what’s going on in Gaza right now. You got youth unemployment, 70 percent, you know people can’t even leave the area,” he said.

Sanders has also been a relentless critic of President Donald Trump, repeatedly calling him a liar and the “most dangerous president” in US history.

Sanders’ popularity has risen steadily over the past several weeks, especially among men, African Americans, and rural residents, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling. He leads in polls for Nevada’s nominating caucuses on Saturday.

Bernie Sanders: The US democracy is an oligarchy where billionaires are buying elections

Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders has called the US democracy an “oligarchy where billionaires are buying elections.”

Speaking to a crowd of supporters at his last rally ahead of the state’s primary elections in Las Vegas on Friday, Sanders accused billionaires Republican Donald Trump and Democratic Michael Bloomberg of trying to buy the US presidency.

“I do not believe in an oligarchy where billionaires are buying elections. In the last couple of weeks, Donald Trump has been out there with his billionaire friends, gets 150 thousand dollars a person for the Republican Party. You got Michael Bloomberg worth 60 billion dollars. Bloomberg has every right in the world to run for president; he has no right to buy the presidency.”

Sanders reiterated that Trump is a liar, vowing to his supporters that he would beat him in the upcoming elections.

“We are going to defeat Donald Trump because the American people understand, no matter what their political views maybe, that we cannot continue having a pathological liar as president,” he said.

The leading Democratic presidential candidate pointed out that Trump, who was corrupt to the core, has been undermining the democratic values that the American nation stood for.

“[W]e cannot continue to have a corrupt administration, we cannot continue having a president who is undermining American democracy and our constitution.”

Sanders described Trump as “a bully, who can’t even get along with people that he appointed in his administration.”

The senior politician pointed out that the Americans needed a seasoned statesman to replace Trump and fix the corrupt system installed by him.

“We have got to get our priorities right. We need an economy and a government that works for all of us. Not just one percent. But it is not just a rigged economy. The American people, regardless of their political views, understand that we have a corrupt political system. That’s it. What our campaign tries to be is honest. To take the difficult issues and put them on the table, not hide them. I believe in democracy, which is one person, one vote.”

The Democratic presidential candidate also pointed out that Michael Bloomberg, who is worth 60 billion dollars, “has every right in the world to run for president, he has no right to buy the presidency.”

In the meantime, political analysts believe that the Vermont senator has a good chance of becoming not only the Democratic presidential candidate in the 2020 election but also, replacing Trump by winning the next presidency.

“Bernie Sanders has a chance to actually win, assuming that the very powerful forces aligned against him, led by the billionaires, including the billionaire thugs in Saudi Arabia and their friends over in Israel, are unable to find a way to cheat him of the White House,” US author, journalist and political analyst, Kevin Barrett, told Press TV.

  1. We all know Sanders is a Rothschild-Vatican-Masonic Zionism System Puppet & feel the BURN, as in Gonorrhea.

    “There is no such a thing in America as an independent press, unless it is out in country towns. You are all slaves. You know it, and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to express an honest opinion. If you expressed it, you would know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid $150 for keeping honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for doing similar things. If I should allow honest opinions to be printed in one issue of my paper, I would be like Othello before twenty-four hours: my occupation would be gone. The man who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the street hunting for another job. The business of a New York journalist is to distort the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to villify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread, or for what is about the same — his salary. You know this, and I know it; and what foolery to be toasting an “Independent Press”! We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping-jacks. They pull the string and we dance. Our time, our talents, our lives, our possibilities, are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

  2. Reading all the comments, it seems that everyone has an opinion, but no one has a solution.
    “If you’re not part of the Solution, you’re part of the Problem.”

  3. That monetary issue was first predicted in 82 by a book I understood….”Truth in Money” ….and the fact that M3 followed it so precisely on a graph of compounding interest, has me convinced you can reliably estimate the quantity (Q) portion of where M3 would be if still in existence (it was about to scare the S out of the mommy’s and daddy’s so they got rid of it.

    That is not of Trumps doing or Bernie’s control (he could affect it)….its a steamroller of public and private debt. Money = debt……it’s how money is manufactured from air. Comes with a major flaw however…the interest on the newly made money has never been “made”. There is no “equity” component in this aging compounding math problem that is the FED debt money Dollar.

    The graph is $1.00 borrowed in 1913 with 6% yearly interest compounded in for 110 years (to 2023). That graph is what M3 quantity of money would look like. It’s exponentially expanding at an increasing rate. You will understand the problem as you have to change the scale of the graph and have a clear view of the cliff that this US train is approaching.

    Take a look at the total of dollar based derivatives. They rocketed past $1200 trillion. That is essentially M3…..the pyramid that funnels wealth to the owners of the debt money system….and that is not the US citizens.

  4. There is no US for Americans, we are a colony dictated by jews. Jews got a homeland and therefore should leave the US and move to israhell. We will gladly exchange all zionist, christian zionist included, for all Palestinians.

    • So What Would Roughly be the numbers flowing to and from Israel …….. What’s estimated Zionistcally Enslaved Population that would be going to Israel and What’s the Total Number of Palestinians to be maybe Airlifted ?

  5. Its well known Bernie not weekend at Bernies is a well known Zionist and would Nuke anybody for the sake of his beloved Israel

  6. Over 28 years ago Ross Perot said, ” We must clean out the barn in DC”. The two party system is a total failure. How much money does our government owe? Has Israel been brought to justice for doing 9/11/01? Obama got away with the scam of Sandy Hook. Bush got away with the scam of attacking Iraq based on lies. Congress passed the phony Patriot Act. The Constitution is gang raped thousands of times a day all over the country by DHS. Any day Americans will wake up to discover their life savings have been confiscated by government. The two party system is totally corrupt. Donald Adolph is a documented liar and con artist. America is gone. Perhaps America never was what lying history books claim. Dishonest Abe is an unindicted war criminal too. He had zero legal authority to kill a million and plunder over half the country for the lie of holding the Union together. Today we are all virtually slaves to government working over half our lives to pay taxes to be wasted on military deadly weapons. Junk yards of old military junk are polluting every water supply. Animal and plant life are being obliterated along with Earth itself.
    As a former graduate student in physics from India once proclaimed, “Man is a pot of shit”.

  7. If Bernie’s elected he’ll be totally compromised like they did with Trump. Either that or JFKed. They’ve got a two headed coin in play. Bernie’s “defeated” in primary like the last time or he gets elected and they become his closest “advisors” while the press will run with the Russia hoax and imply that he’s Putin’s man in office so he’s constrained against making any “concessions” to those evil Rooskies.

    In other words intentionally mixing metaphors they’ve got all the bases covered.

  8. Zionists to the left to the right. Does usa have a choice but to elect one ? Totally compromised. Much the same as the UK election . Where the brexit party did a last minute deals to not even field candidates thus ensuring boris the zionist victory.

  9. He’s not with the “same types of Zionists.
    He’s with the same Zionists.
    If Sanders is elected, nothing will change, regardless who’s elected nothing will change.
    The only way to stop this is resistance, a large united organised resistance.
    NOT Civil War, fighting each other is not United. Revolution is united.
    There’s one thing between the Zionists, and ourselves, and it ain’t we the people.
