Just a few days ago Bernie Sanders’ followers announced the creation of the ‘Bernie or bust’ movement – a sort of ‘Occupy Elections.’ Meanwhile, yesterday Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton at New Hampshire Democratic rally and announced the end of his run.
This is a brief summary of Sanders – Clinton clashes and latest developments:
This is a full video of what happened in NH:
So much for the ‘feeling the Bern’ of the ‘new American revolution’ and Bernie’s promise to ‘go all the way to the convention.’ Sanders left behind a lot of disenfranchised followers, who feel betrayed and abandoned.
Are you at all surprised at this outcome? I’m not. This was written all over the situation as it developed. Democrats’ top bras, including president Obama, spent the past couple of months wining and dining Sanders.
The US elites excel in the art of sophisticated and exquisite bribery. This art has been developed to perfection. Here’s how it works: find what makes someone you want to bribe truly tick, what’s the most important thing for him/her, and then produce it with a flourish. In exchange, you tie up the object of your bribery with obligation of gratitude and reciprocity.
Bernie’s life’s passion is to change campaign financing rules, and if he accomplishes that it would mean his life’s mission is complete – no problem, he can have that one! He wants certain liberal Supreme Court nominations – he’s got it! Maybe some better deals for students, such as free tuition and student debt forgiveness, would be thrown in as Clinton campaign promise. And mark my words, if Hillary won elections (a big ‘if’), Sanders would become a Chair of the budget committee, or something similar, or Hillary’s VP, as another possibility. He would be ensured a very high-profile position as a result of his endorsement of Clinton.
What was said behind closed doors? Simply put, Sanders was offered deals and perks he could not refuse.
Carrot and stick: I’m certain he was also threatened that if he doesn’t take the deals offered now, there would be no such deals later. They had to make it happen before the Democratic Convention to avoid having riots on their hands at the convention. Having received some relatively insignificant perks and concessions, Bernie promised to forget what his electorate truly wanted: change the corrupt system. He also promised to end his revolt within Democratic Party and to support Clinton.
There will still be lots of discontent among his betrayed constituents; although now Bernie, as the true company man, will do everything in his power to calm down his followers and steer them towards Clinton. Some of these followers won’t buy it though; they’ll leave the democrats and vote for Green Party’s Jill Stein, or for Trump, as a protest vote.
Read my past related article: Lada Ray’s First US Presidential Elections Prediction: REVOLT IN REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTIES. The scenarios I described there have developed further and they continue evolving. As I predicted in the above-linked article, change is in the air and this will be an unusually interesting and confusing US election. I foresee some very unusual – for the normally docile US elections – developments, with some shocking possibilities!
Donald Trump: many of those who are disappointed in the US system plan to vote for Trump. I didn’t want to say much on that while the primaries were still ongoing because I thought it would be counterproductive.
I am seeing a lot of behind-the-scenes activity with Trump. There are some important predictions to make… I plan an Earth Shift Report on US Presidential Elections 2016. I won’t give you the exact date when this ESR will be ready: it will come out when the timing is right. Please stay tuned for announcements!
