Vice President Joe Biden is toying with the idea of entering the race to become the presidential nominee of the Democratic party for 2016. The question is why? The answer may be Bernie Sanders.

Sanders is developing a following as he builds a monster of a grassroots campaign that all the money in the world will not be able to match. Some polls have shown him charging ahead of Hillary Clinton, Wall Street’s choice to be the Democratic candidate, and a person who has deep pockets because of her ties to Wall Street.

A Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday showed Sanders edging Clinton in Iowa, even with Biden in the race. On Wednesday, an NBC/Marist poll showed Sanders wiping out Clinton in New Hampshire, with Biden also included in the polls.

Biden hasn’t entered the race yet, but the polls list him as a candidate. Why?
The answer might be that Sanders would be wiping out Hillary by wider margins, and Wall Street doesn’t want that.

Biden has long been touted as a man of the people. Yet his record suggests he is a man of the people along the lines of Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden, who always votes liberal on social issues while always voting to economically rape and pillage the 99 percent on behalf of Wall Street and the 0.01 percent. In other words, Biden is Wall Street’s wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The idea here is that Biden’s largely false reputation as a man of the people is being used to attract Democrats who otherwise would vote for Sanders. Sanders, instead of beating Clinton by 1 percent in Iowa, and 11 in New Hampshire, would likely be winning by 15 to 20 percent in both states against Wall Street’s favorite female candidate.

Wall Street’s dirty tactics against Sanders haven’t even begun yet, but Biden’s toying with his candidacy suggests those tactics are right around the corner, the more that Sanders gains strength against Clinton.

That’s the way the Democratic leadership works on behalf of Wall Street. Vote for Biden, the stealth candidate. Don’t buy it. Vote Sanders.

According to Vermont Public Radio, US Senator Bernie Sanders will announce his bid for the Democratic nomination for president on Thursday. Sander’s is given little chance of winning the nomination by the corporate press, but there’s a reason why this isn’t so. The senator appeals to Democrats and Republicans on bread and butter issues, and he has a 100 voting score with the National Rifle Association.

Sanders will release a short statement on Thursday and then hold a major campaign kickoff in Vermont several weeks from now.

Sander’s candidacy means the middle class wing of the Democratic Party will challenge the deep pockets of the Wall Street wing of the Party, which is represented by Hilliary Clinton.

“Sanders’ basic message will be that the middle class in America has been decimated in the past two decades while wealthy people and corporations have flourished because the rich have taken over government, and used their control to redistribute income from the 99 to the 1 percent.

His opposition to a proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal (T.P.P.) shows how he plans to frame this key issue of his campaign.

“If you want to understand why the middle class in America is disappearing and why we have more wealth and income inequality in America than we have had since the late 1920s, you have to address the issue of trade,” Sanders said in a phone interview on April 23.

As the longest-serving Independent member of Congress, Sanders has been a vocal critic of the influence that large corporations have on the political process.

“All of the major corporations want to continue with this trade policy. Wall Street wants to continue this trade policy. The drug companies want to continue this trade policy. But organizations representing American workers and the environment do not want to continue the trade policy. They want new trade policies,” he said. Sanders did not point out that Wall Street’s Democratic hopeful Hilliary Clinton also supports these income redistribution policies falsely marketed as free trade treaties, and especially the TPP.

And Sanders says it is imperative that all the Democratic presidential candidates address the issue of trade and income inequality.

“So, I think that Hillary Clinton and every candidate out there should in fact address whether or not they support this T.P.P.,” Sanders said. So expect Hilliary to lie on the issue time and again in public.

In the past few months, Sanders has been actively visiting many of the early presidential primary states. Just last weekend he traveled to South Carolina to address the state Democratic Party and news reports indicate that his economic message drew a lot of support at the state meeting. The grass roots are rallying to Sanders, not to Hilliary.

The corporate propaganda machine gives Sanders little chance of defeating Clinton. However, that’s part of the propaganda ploy they play on the American people. They’ll label the best chance for America’s middle class (Sanders) as having no chance of winning the nomination, and they’ll tell voters not to waste their vote on Bernie. However, Sanders wouldn’t be running if he didn’t have the grass roots support to win.

The reality is that every vote for Hilliary and every vote for a Republican candidate is a vote to continue the political and economic policies that have been destroying the middle class by redistributing their wealth and income to the super rich for the last thirty-four years.

In other words, a vote for Hilliary or any Republican candidate by any member of the 99 percent is a vote to commit financial suicide. It’s a complete waste of your vote. Vote for real hope and change. Vote for Bernie!
