Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders: Sheepdogging for Hillary and the Democrats in 2016

Black Agenda Report by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon May 6, 2015 “The sheepdog is a card the Democratic party plays every presidential primary season when there’s no White House Democrat running for re-election.” Spoiler alert: we have seen the Bernie Sanders show before, and we know exactly how it ends. Bernie has zero likelihood of winning the Democratic nomination for president over Hillary Clinton. Bernie will lose, Hillary will win.

Imagine its platform stressing social justice, human and civil rights, peace, disarmament, and other populist policies America’s duopoly spurns. More on this below. On October 23, Russia Today and C-SPAN broadcast 90 minutes of debate by third party presidential candidates Jill Stein (Green Party), Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party), Virgil Goode (Constitution Party), and Rocky Anderson (Justice Party).

Obama Has Promoted An Anti-Climate Change Agenda

OpEd News October 24, 2012 by Mark Dunlea Green Party’s Stein Climate Change Agenda ignored by national environmental groups Environmental groups have been complaining in the media that the words “climate change” were not mentioned in the recent Presidential debates.

The Green New Deal, the cornerstone of her campaign, calls for a massive investment in…
