Yes, Democrats Are Trying to Cheat Bernie Sanders Out of the Nomination Again

Bernie Sanders got the most votes in the Iowa caucus, but somehow — it’s just so mysteriousPete Buttigieg got more delegates.

Besides the actual vote-stealing, of course, Democrats are also deploying their powerful media allies to hype Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar, as potential fallback establishment candidates, now that Joe Biden’s campaign is clearly approaching its Hindenburg-at-Lakehurst finale. Of course, the “Anybody But Bernie” narrative is being driven by Team Clinton, working behind the scenes to torpedo Sanders. Hillary cannot forgive Bernie for challenging her in 2016, so her allies and operatives are doing everything they can to make sure Bernie doesn’t win in 2020.

“In New Hampshire, Democratic Voters Are Paralyzed by Fear of Making the Wrong Choice” — well, here’s a hint: They’re all wrong. And speaking of wrong, let’s talk about Bill Kristol:

GOP-leaning independent voters in New Hampshire are receiving phone calls and texts from anti-Trump Republicans urging them to cross the aisle and vote in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, NHJournal has learned. The message is for these unaffiliated voters, who can vote in either party’s primary, to vote for a “responsible and electable” Democratic alternative to Donald Trump.
National #NeverTrump leader Bill Kristol, founder of the conservative Weekly Standard magazine, confirmed to NHJournal that he is part of the effort, which involves tens of thousands of New Hampshire voter contacts and a six-figure budget.
“Yup. I’m happy to have joined with some others to help remind New Hampshire independents, who might be accustomed to voting in the Republican primary, that this year, they may be able to make more of a difference by voting for a responsible and electable candidate in the Democratic primary,” Kristol said.
The calls don’t mention any candidates by name or endorse any specific Democrats, instead making a case for supporting centrists in the all-important First in the Nation primary, as opposed to self-described democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Yeah, with Team Clinton and the #NeverTrump crowd working together against him, Bernie Sanders is probably a shoo-in for the nomination. Kristol and the Clintons are a bunch of losers who deserve each other.
