Economy is in free fall, we're facing an enormous disaster that demands unprecedented mobilization and solidarity, and people are terrified of what's going to happen next. If only there were an FDR-like candidate whose entire platform is suited for this very circumstance

Biden claimed he 'became a professor' after leaving Senate

Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to make some factual errors during a virtual roundtable on Wednesday regarding his claim that he "became a professor" after leaving the Senate.

"When I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania," Biden said. "And I've spent a lot of time -- and the University of Delaware has the Biden School as well, so I've spent a lot of time on campus .with college students."

Biden similarly claimed he "became a teacher" on the campaign trail back in February although he didn't specifically say where he taught.

Kate Bedingfield, a spokesperson for Biden at the time who now serves as his deputy campaign manager, told the paper, "He will not be teaching classes.”

WATCH: In Fiery Floor Speech, Sanders Rips GOP for Relentless Efforts to 'Punish' Poor People

"Meanwhile, these very same folks had no problem a couple years ago voting for a trillion dollars in tax breaks for billionaires and large profitable corporations. Not a problem."

n a fiery speech on the Senate floor Wednesday ahead of the chamber's passage of a massive coronavirus stimulus bill, Sen. Bernie Sanders ripped his Republican colleagues for doing everything in their power to ensure that poor and vulnerable people receive less financial assistance than they desperately need in this moment of nationwide crisis.

"Now I find that some of my Republican colleagues are very distressed. They're very upset that somebody who's making 10, 12 bucks an hour might end up with a paycheck for four months, more than they received last week," Sanders said, referring to the group of Republican senators who threatened to delay passage of the stimulus bill over its temporary expansion of unemployment benefits, which they described as overly generous.

"Some of my Republican friends still have not given up on the need to punish the poor and working people."
—Sen. Bernie Sanders

In response, as Common Dreams reported, Sanders vowed to hold up the stimulus legislation with a demand for stronger conditions on the bill's "corporate welfare fund" if the Republican senators refused to drop their objections to the unemployment provisions.

The Senate ultimately defeated an amendment by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) that would have limited unemployment benefits and the stimulus bill passed Wednesday night by a vote of 96-0.

"Oh my god, the universe is collapsing. Imagine that?" said Sanders, waving his arms in mock distress. "Somebody who's making 12 bucks an hour now, like the rest of us, faces an unprecedented economic crisis with the $600 bucks on top of their normal, their regular unemployment check, might be making a few bucks more for four months. Oh my word! Will the universe survive?"

...”appeared to have made some factual errors...”. The news corporations should all be sued for letting that insane old liar get away with this astonishing body of lies while running for president. The double standard is glaring.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.foxnews.com/politics/sanders-threatens-to-stall-coronavirus-package-over-gop-bid-to-change-unemployment-aid.amp

Bernie Sanders said Wednesday afternoon he might torpedo the Senate's compromise stimulus package unless Republican senators dropped their objections about what they called a "massive drafting error" related to unemployment benefits, in the latest twist to a process that has been marked by delays and last-minute hurdles.

“In my view, it would be an outrage to prevent working-class Americans to receive the emergency unemployment assistance included in this legislation," Sanders said in a statement, also posted on social media.

"Unless these Republican Senators drop their objections, I am prepared to put a hold on this bill until stronger conditions are imposed on the $500 billion corporate welfare fund to make sure that any corporation receiving financial assistance under this legislation does not lay off workers, cut wages or benefits, ship jobs overseas, or pay workers poverty wages," he continued.

An objection by a single senator would prevent the Senate from quickly passing the bill by unanimous consent, although it remained possible that the chamber could pass the legislation by voice vote or roll-call vote. Fox News is told lawmakers are leaning toward approving the bill via voice vote, in which senators in the chamber shout "aye" or "nay," with the loudest side winning.

So Burnie managed to pack some pork into the emergency bill, eh?

On his website Sanders said: "See!? I told y'all I could get ya some free ****. Want more free ****? Then vote for me. And send campaign contributions. NOW! I need more money too."

I feel guilty mocking a national hero like Joe Biden. I just heard that Joe was savagely beaten by a band of ruffians as he was saving Nelson Mandela from a burning building. Corn Pop was also standing in the shadows, glaring menacingly, but Joe was undeterred. Joe’s quoted comment courtesy of NBC, “Corn Pop was a mean dude, but I slung Mandela over my shoulder and walked through the flames, punching ruffians with my left hand and giving Corn Pop the evil eye.”

@snood,
I would say that Lash relishes the idea of sowing dissent and strife among Democrats. As far as I can see, that's why she pushes the Bernie or Bust mantra.

@layman,
I know I should probably laugh this off because you can’t be serious, so I’ll speak my feelings into the universe.

Waffle House is closing several restaurants.

My child is trying to find a way to continue to employ nine people.

Work places are closing daily, leaving people with no way to put food on the table or a roof over their heads.

The ‘pork’ Bernie got was extended unemployment insurance because these places of employment may never open again. Other places of employment may not be able to hire for extended periods of time.

I don’t understand how anyone can support throwing billions at irresponsible industries and balk at taking adequate care of families affected by this mess.

@Setanta,
Yeah, I’d agree that’s a big part of it. Maybe all of it. Beats me why she’d want to sabotage the Democrats.

There is pure spite and hatred in her attacks on Biden. And Clinton. Hell, even Obama.

And continuing to promote Bernie’s squashed campaign is sure a good way to poke a stick in the Democrats’ eye.

I guess we all get our jollies different ways.

No one is obsessed with you, that is a creepy thought. Several people, however, have noticed your consistent attacks on the Democratic party. Learn to live with it.

Several people have noticed your obsession with me—and your need to always be instigating harassment and personal attacks on other people.

What’s missing in your life? Why are you so miserable? Should we review your posting history to try to solve your problem? It might help.

I am serious. Burnie just wants to give people a fully (over)paid 4 months vacation and have them all stay home from work. If they go back to work they will LOSE money, so why should they? Businesses will go under because no one will show up for work. This is on top of a flat $2400 per couple cash payment.

An extra $600 PER WEEK, per person will add up to an enormous sum. Burnie just wants capitalism to fail.

This is exactly what the lefties did, by calculation and design, to force NYC to go bankrupt back in the '70's. They made sure that entitlement payouts were more than the city could possibly pay. Their stated goal was to bring down capitalism.

Weekly jobless claims hit 3.3M, smashing 1982 record as coronavirus crisis crashes economy.

"Most historical comparisons of this scale are inadequate," said Glassdoor senior economist Daniel Zhao. "The closest would be natural disasters like major hurricanes. However, as today's report shows, the coronavirus outbreak is economically akin to a major hurricane occurring in every state around the country for weeks on end.”

"A coronavirus recession is inevitable," Josh Bivens, director of research at the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute, wrote in a recent blog post. Bivens estimated that at least 3 million jobs will be lost by summer, putting the U.S. on a pace of job loss comparable to the worst month of the 2008 financial crisis.


For commies, this is the best thing that could possibly happen. Everyone will become dependent on government.

You perhaps missed that people in other countries had to deal with even situations since weeks or even months?

The labour law and medical situation in the USA was already known years ago. Was it only since you became a Sanders supporter that you noticed such?

It was the largest amphibious invasion in the history of warfare. On June 6, 1944, more than 150,000 brave young soldiers from the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada stormed the beaches of Normandy, France in a bold strategy to push the Nazis out of Western Europe and turn the tide of the war for good.

In planning the D-Day attack, Allied military leaders knew that casualties might be staggeringly high, but it was a cost they were willing to pay in order to establish an infantry stronghold in France. Days before the invasion, General Dwight D. Eisenhower was told by a top strategist that paratrooper casualties alone could be as high as 75 percent. Nevertheless, he ordered the attack.


Ike didn't just "let them die," the bastard ordered them to die. He could have told them all to just "shelter in place," but nooooooooooooooo. I guess Trump wants to "be like Ike," even if it is on a junior league scale.

Speaking for myself, I just find her mystifying and I am always trying to figure her out. I have a hard time thinking anyone really acts the way she does. But then last week she said she only acts the way she does here because she doesn't respect us fake liberals.

I've come to the conclusion she just naturally is centered on some kind of fighting mode and looks to anyone not part of the Bernie crowd as enemies. Unless they are republicans. She has kept the old hate she had when she was a Bush and Iraq war supporter when she had her on the road to Damascus conversion to "Progressives."

Can you imagine Paul the apostle trying to convince non-Christians to be Christians but still holding on to the hate he had when he was killing them? I doubt he would have too successful.

But I forget, we here on A2K are in a unique position, it's only us she has no respect for. We are to believe she treats all others who are not Bernie Sanders supporters differently.

I am a woman and not quite old, though I admit to feeling about twenty years older, and looking it too; tired eyes and all. So I guess I belong to the creep club as well.

BTW; I hope everyone on A2K remains healthy and safe through this awful time.
