Genius "Medicare For Y'All" South Carolina Billboard Campaign!

Berner Irena Schulz of South Carolina had a genius brainstorm to help the world's greatest candidate carry the Palmetto State on Leap Day 2020, billboards reminding her neighbors what a Sanders presidency would mean and the importance of voting.

If you would like to learn more, pop over to her GoFundMe page. As of this writing, she already has purchased 8 billboards. As she continues to blow past her original goal, she has concrete plans to secure even more of these persuasive advertising towers.

Practical Significance Of Sunrise Endorsement

Naturally, Bernie's entire platform motivates young voters. However, in terms of creating a movement and looping in the newest generations, the climate crisis consistently tops the list. Let's remember this coverage from November...

If you haven't seen the background video released before the Sunrise endorsement, I exhort you to spend a few minutes. It brings the cold statistics of movement politics into sharp focus...

CBS News Plus Charleston, SC Post And Courier Confirm Sanders SURGE (and use "that word")

Tack on the People's Action Endorsement and Sanders has had quite a week. Here are the facts...


Charleston, SC Post And Courier report

Aided by voters under 50, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is continuing his recent national surge in South Carolina, where he has supplanted U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts for second place.

Sanders gained the most support of any candidate since the last Post and Courier-Change Research poll taken in October. He added 7 percentage points to pass Warren, whose backing was unchanged.

Sanders’ poll numbers have risen in other early voting states since Thanksgiving, where he has become the leader in New Hampshire and the second choice in Iowa, according to data tallied by Real Clear Politics.

Sanders Surge Just Became Undeniable (to others)

For Berners, looking out from the inside, we knew that the Sanders Surge was born during an early autumn phone call from AOC to a Las Vegas hospital room. However, even as Sanders has climbed and climbed and climbed, my best efforts to convince supporters of other candidates (not necessarily to vote for him but) at least to concede that a Sanders Surge has occurred have been met with cognitive dissonance. No volume facts has made a dent.

I was not surprised by the reaction except for the depths of denial which some feel about Bernie's continued rise despite clogged arteries (which since have been locked open by stents).

On Friday the 13th, the Boston Globe's James Pindell confirmed the Sanders Surge AND MORE! I have crossed linked from the Democratic Primaries forum.

Boston Globe Confirms Sanders Surge // "Best Shot At The Nomination"

Let's begin with the inevitable objections:

1) James Pindell is a staff analyst at the Boston Globe, not an independent media figure, Sanders flunky, toady or campaign surrogate.

2) The Boston Globe is one of the nation's oldest, largest and most respected periodicals.

3) The article linked below was run as political analysis, not outside opinion, thus subject to the news staff's and ombudsman's standards reporting standards.

4) On the semantics of surge, Pindell used the words, "He has reclaimed the lead in New Hampshire." If others claim that he trails distantly in the Granite States, my abacus informs me that Sanders has proved his surge there, at bare minimum, to the Boston Globe.

5) Whereas my previous threads on the subject of the Sanders Surge have left me open to (baseless) claims that I merely engage is reporting opinion as fact, the article below makes an indelible, affirmative judgment of those same facts as cold, hard proof. Furthermore, it does so as the hometown newspaper of another candidate for the Democratic nomination who happens to be that state's senior United States senator.

6) This article in no way proves victory in the quest for the nomination but CONCRETELY AND INDUBITABLY PROVES the existence of the Sanders Surge.

Bernie Sanders is not only back, he has the best shot at the nomination right now

Two months ago, it didn’t look good for Bernie Sanders or his presidential campaign. He was at a Las Vegas-area hospital recovering from a heart attack. Polls in Iowa and New Hampshire showed him way back in third place among Democrats. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren, his rival for the progressive wing for the Democratic presidential electorate, was surging and, at the time, was leading the race.

To some, it felt like the beginning of the end of Sanders’ six-year-long White House effort. The health scare, after all, offered him a chance to bow out of the race, save face, and use his clout to further push the field to the left.

But the terrible, no good, very bad moment for Sanders ended up being just a blip.

With approximately 50 days before the Iowa caucuses, Sanders is not only back, but he has the cleanest shot at the 2020 Democratic nomination. (emphasis added)

1 Letter To A Slimy CEO, 1 To Medicare And, "I feel like I owe my life right now to Bernie Sanders"

This is cross linked from the Democratic Primaries forum. I am sick to death of the easy dismissals of Sanders' decades-long career of accomplishment and of his recent surge.

This powerful video should help a bit.

1 Letter To A Slimy CEO, 1 To Medicare And, "I feel like I owe my life right now to Bernie Sanders"

To all DUers perpetuating the Sanders canard, "What has Bernie done?", this video is but one example of how far off you are. As the patient herself states at time index 1:48 of this video, "If he can do that as a U.S. Senator, what can he do as President?"

and in case you plan to claim this as a campaign stunt, all of the documentation below shows what Bernie achieved as a sitting senator. In other words, this occurred in his official capacity.

Comeback/Rebound/Surge/Going Strong (So Happy, I Could Plotz)

My, oh, my! It's been a while since I grinned this wide. Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, said Sanders has the “best chance” to sweep the first three states and that his odds are “underestimated and under-discussed.”

Per Sahil Kapur and Laura Litvan of Bloomberg News, "Bernie Sanders Makes A Comeback" and "Candidate Rebounds After Heart Attack" (link below).

• According to my thesaurus, comeback, rebound and surge are synonyms!

The Sanders Surge is even more real today than yesterday. Cynics, take your negativity elsewhere!

December 12, 2019

He seems to have rebounded in recent weeks as he’s stuck to Medicare for All while other candidates have softened their stances and as he’s gained star endorsements from the younger faces in the movement.

National surveys released Tuesday by Quinnipiac and Monmouth show him slightly ahead -- but within the margin of error -- for second place among Democrats, behind Joe Biden.

And he’s going strong in the early nominating states. Recent polls place him second in Iowa — where he’s returning for several events this weekend — and statistically tied for the lead in New Hampshire and second in Nevada. And he’s statistically tied with Warren for the lead in California, a Super Tuesday state that provides 10% of the delegates to the Democratic nominating convention.
