Former United States Vice President Joe Biden announced that he was entering the 2020 Democratic presidential primary last week. Biden is the well-acknowledged Democratic National Committee (DNC) establishment candidate, which means he is the candidate of Wall Street, and not of the 99.9 percent of United States citizens.

Wall Street investment bankers, such as hedge fund managers who steal hundreds of millions of dollars per year in compensation and call it earnings, already completely own the Republican Party and most of the Democratic Party. However, they do not control the progressive wing of the party, which is represented by Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and several others running for the Democratic Party nomination.

In fact, Biden has entered the race in order to cut those candidates off at the pass. The news media, which is controlled by billionaires, has also been doing its best to keep the primary race news centered around Biden. Even before he announced his candidacy, the media kept Biden’s name in the spotlight by continuously including the then noncandidate in polls, and pointing out how high he was in the polls.

Bernie Sanders wants higher taxes on the rich, taxes on Wall Street transactions, the curtailment of Wall Street control over the United States federal government acting solely on behalf of the rich, the $15 minimum wage, Medicare for All, a reduction in wealth and income inequality, an end to exporting United States jobs to cheap labor nations, etc…. Biden, of course, is against all of these.

Essentially, the United States government is no longer Democratic; it has been transformed into an Oligarchy, which is control by a small group. Biden represents that small group of people, as does, US Senator Mitch McConnell, as well as the rest of the Republican Party.

If you want to be represented in the United States government, and you want to restore democracy in government, vote Bernie or Elizabeth Warren. Biden is not your candidate.

The United States Has the Greatest Number Living in Poverty

The United States Has the Greatest Number of citizens living in poverty among the industrial nations, according to a new study by the United Nations. This study is likely a dramatic understatement since the United States has the most unequal distribution of income, and the most severe inequality of wealth, which is fueled by the most one-sided distribution of political power. In addition, the study is done using data from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and does not count the hundreds of billions of dollars the rich have stowed away outside of the United States, nor the great wealth they hold abroad.

The study shows forty percent of the US adults cannot come up with a paltry 400 dollars if it was needed for an emergency. Most of the income and wealth the rich have stolen from the middle class.
