New York has decided to cancel the primary elections and to "remove" Bernie Sanders from the Ballot !!!

Something not making sense like why bother removing Sanders and then cancelling the election anyway ? 🤣

Other States cancelling too and looks like Biden gets nominated without the necessary votes !!!

Maybe Democrats trying to establish a new way to "not" vote and declare a default winner just the same 🤣

Well maybe maybe not as they say.

So many Democrats worried about Trump cancelling the November election yet they seem to be cancelling themselves 🤣

Wonder what happens to all the absentee ballots already "mailed in" ?? 🤣



New York boots Bernie from ballot, cancels Dem presidential primary


New York election officials decided Monday to strip Bernie Sanders from the ballot and cancel the state’s Democratic presidential primary, sparking outrage among his supporters.

Sen. Sanders (I-Vt.) withdrew from the race and endorsed front-runner Joe Biden earlier this month, but had hoped to stay on the ballot in remaining primary states to accumulate delegates and influence the Dem party platform and rules.

The democratic socialist’s campaign issued a blistering response to the state Board of Elections’ decision, calling it an “outrage" and "a blow to American democracy.”

“While we understood that we did not have the votes to win the Democratic nomination our campaign was suspended, not ended, because people in every state should have the right to express their preference,” Sanders senior adviser Jeff Weaver said.

When a party changes rules and screws one of their own repeatedly, do you really think that they care what their voters want?

Last time you could vote any way you wanted and it didn’t matter because Hillary had been decided. This time they decided not to do such pomp and circumstance by not letting you vote before going with the winner that they picked. 2024, they might not even have a mail it in general election like they want this year.

You know, because free stuff isn’t free or something...

This is all just smoke and mirrors for the Dems anyway.
The Dem dumpster fire is going to be blasted into earth orbit after Trump rips Biden to shreds in the 1st debate.

Their party their rules. Take it or leave it. If people want to write in Bernie for the real election they are welcomed to do so. I will never understand though why people support a party that is constantly engaged in manipulating their primary rules. Who would want any candidate they prop up. Not even in office yet and their integrity is already compromised. If they get elected the problem is only going to get worse. Now it's their executive branch and their rules.

Now I'm really confused. I've been reading here on ATS that Sanders dropped out of the race. So did he cancel that and come back in again? Otherwise, why does he need to be on the ballot?

You know, many countries manage without needing to hold primary elections. The voters just let the parties choose their own candidates, and then choose between the parties. It seems to work, because it isn't in the parties' interests to choose candidates that the voters won't like. It's cheaper. too, because holding one election instead of two halves the election expenses.

Poor Bernie.
The old commie just can't get a break from the Democrat party he keeps supporting.

Good thing he's such a pushover that seems to have no problem with taking it up the a$$...again and again and again.

We need to keep encouraging the DNC to make more of these decisions. I love seeing them eat their own and lash out.
Popcorn is ready and constant.

Every other candidate had their names removed when they dropped out. Bernie is just a spoiled, whiney, 70 child who never grew up.

Sanders suspended his campaign.
This is about him accumulating delegates for the convention so he can use them as bargaining chips for the platform.
NY has a lot of them.

I having serious doubts about Biden making it to NOV. He has an ad out now with his wife talking during the entire ad with him next to her. Who does that? He's going to be in real trouble if he keeps avoiding talking much or confrontation with the public and reporters. Trump is going to chew him up and spit him out just like he did with Hillary. She was not prepared for someone getting in her face and taking the conversation off road. She did not have the mental wit for it and Biden has no mental wit period.

Bernie doesn't want to be president. That'd mean he'd have to do work. Bernie has never worked. He's in it for the payouts. Always has been.

I've suspected for a while now that Bernie is just "controlled opposition" to keep the socialist wing the Democratic Party from having any influence. Remember, the party is run by limousine liberals who are pretty much the antithesis of everything socialism stands for.

It must suck not being invited to a party that isn't even going to happen.
Hey, Bernie...if it makes you feel better...I'm not going to your funeral.
You aren't coming to mine.
