Pro-Israel PAC Defeats Sanders' Candidate Turner in Ohio
by Register Peace & Freedom or Green
Wednesday Aug 4th, 2021 7:34 AM
Nina Turner, Bernie Sanders' campaign manager running for a House of Representatives seat in Ohio, was defeated by the reactionary Democratic and Republican parties, including the super PAC Democratic Majority for Israel, "a group founded by longtime Democratic pollster Mark Mellman and bankrolled by an oil and gas executive. The organization has also received money from Republican donors." See https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/08/04/conceding-defeat-ohio-special-election-nina-turner-says-our-justice-journey

While the Zionists were the most important factor, according to Huffington Post cited in the Common Dreams article, they had plenty of help from the Democrats' Congressional Black Caucus, war criminal millionaire former US Senator and Secretary of State Democrat Hillary Clinton, and Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn, a mouthpiece of the medical insurance companies.

Reminder to all: San Francisco and California voted for Bernie Sanders for president in the 2020 Democratic primaries.

We are now seeing a repeat of Obama's presidency where he had only the first 2 years of a Democratic majority in both houses, with redistricting based on the 2020 Census to start by August 16, 2021, guaranteeing a Republican majority in the House in 2022 and with the existence of the filibuster in the Senate, effectively Republican control over the Senate. This will set the stage for a Republican presidential victory in 2024. See https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/08/02/time-running-out-democrats-block-gop-gerrymandering-bonanza

Clearly, the Democrats exist to make sure we never vote socialist (Peace & Freedom Party) or Green. They would rather join with the Republicans to block a decent candidate for office and refuse to abolish the filibuster than allow any progressive change. That is why the Democratic Party is best known as the graveyard of all progressive causes.
