Bernie Sanders Is Facing A Field Of Bernies In 2020 (HBO)

Bernie Sanders is running for president again. He made the announcement this morning, promising bold policy ideas that will empower everyday Americans to challenge the wealthy and powerful.

“We’re gonna win,” Sanders told CBS’s John Dickerson. “We are gonna also launch what I think is unprecedented in modern American history, and that is a grassroots movement, John, which will have at least one million people from every state in this country, coming together to not only defeat Donald Trump, not only to win the Democratic nomination but also to lay the groundwork for transforming the economic and political life of this country.”

It sounds a lot like Sanders circa 2016 when he made himself a rockstar with young voters by backing single-payer healthcare and other progressive policies. But he’s coming out for his encore only to find his opponents are remixing his greatest hits. Nearly all of them support Medicare for all. And a lot of them are offering up progressive goodies of their own, from Elizabeth Warren’s universal child-care plan to Cory Booker’s proposed “baby bonds.”

Sanders says this is a feature of his campaign, not a bug.

“All of those ideas and many more are now part of the political mainstream, and a majority of the American people now support them,” Sanders told CBS. “So what this campaign is about is understanding that three years ago we began the political revolution. Now it’s time to complete that revolution and to take that vision and implement it into reality.”

He is also trying to stand out by forcefully taking on Trump, calling him a “racist” and “sexist” on Day 1 of his campaign. But that effort will be complicated by Sanders’s struggle to win over black voters in 2016; by the perception of his followers as “Bernie Bros”; and by accusations that multiple Sanders campaign aides sexually harassed staffers in 2016.

Mostly, though, it will be complicated by the fact that what made him a trailblazer last time—his bold policy agenda—now just makes him part of a very large and diverse pack of competitors.

05 Panel debat – Cannabis reguleren, maar hoe?

John en Inez Meijers (modelkwekers), Bart Vollenberg (cannabis connect), August de Loor ( Adviesburo Drugs), Peter Hendriks (Avites)

Peter Hendriks
In relative silence, Peter Hendriks has been building a small coffeeshop empire in Limburg since the 1980s. His four coffeeshops in Sittard and Roermond are an example for the branch. In 2017 he founded Avites, Alliance of Integer Shops and Growers, who strives to ‘recruit as many cooperators as possible in the coffee shop branch and to jointly resolve the back door problem’.
In relatieve stilte bouwde Peter Hendriks sinds de jaren tachtig een klein coffeeshop imperium op in Limburg. Zijn vier coffeeshops in Sittard en Roermond zijn een visitekaartje voor de branche. In 2017 richtte hij Avites op, Alliantie Van Integere Shops En Telers, die er naar streeft ‘als coöperatie zoveel mogelijk leden in de coffeeshopbranche te werven en gezamenlijk tot een oplossing voor de achterdeurproblematiek te komen’.

John Meijers
By the Dutch press they were baptized ‘The model weed growers from Bierum‘, but their heroic struggle to break the deadlock around the back door brought them to the edge of the abyss. John and Ines cultivated in all openness and informed all authorities about their activities. They paid their electricity and even taxed on the profits, cultivated safely and without pesticides and only delivered invoices to two licensed coffee shops. Still, the breakthrough was not forthcoming. Now John and Ines hope to participate in the experiment with regulated cannabis cultivation with their foundation JoinUs.
Door de Nederlandse pers werden ze ‘De model wiettelers uit Bierum’ gedoopt, maar hun heroïsche strijd om de impasse rond de achterdeur te doorbreken bracht hen aan de rand van de afgrond. John en Ines kweekten in alle openheid en brachten alle instanties op de hoogte van hun activiteiten. Ze betaalden hun stroom en zelfs belasting op de winst, teelden veilig en zonder pesticiden en leverden alleen mét bon aan twee vergunde coffeeshops. Toch bleef de doorbraak uit. Nu hopen John en Ines met hun stichting JoinUs deel te kunnen nemen aan het experiment met gereguleerde cannabisteelt.
August de Loor
Since becoming the first street worker in the Netherlands in 1970, August de Loor has been involved with drugs and drugs policy in Amsterdam and far beyond. For years he ran the Adviesburo Drugs (Drugs Advisory Office) and pioneered a series of harm reduction initiatives, including XTC testing at parties, the Safe House campaign, heroin user rooms and the cannabis coffeeshop as a crucial part of drug policy. August is not only critical of the government and the addiction care industry, but also for the coffeeshop industry. In December 2017, he received the prestigious Frans Banninck Cocq Award for his important contribution to the Amsterdam, national and international drug policy.

Sinds hij in 1970 de eerste straathoekwerker van Nederland werd, is August de Loor betrokken bij alles rond drugs en drugsbeleid in Amsterdam en ver daarbuiten. Jarenlang runde hij het Adviesburo Drugs en verrichtte hij pionierswerk op het gebied van harm reduction: XTC testen op feesten, de Safe House campagne, heroïneverstrekking én de coffeeshop als cruciaal onderdeel van het drugsbeleid. Niet alleen voor de overheid, maar ook voor de coffeeshopbranche is hij een luis in de pels. In december 2017 ontving August de Frans Banninck Cocqpenning voor zijn belangrijke bijdrage aan het Amsterdamse, landelijke en internationale drugsbeleid.

Bart Vollenberg
Bart holds a unique position in the coffeeshop industry: he owns two coffeeshops in Almere and Lelystad, is a board member of the two national coffeeshop unions PCN and BCD and he founded the Epicurus Foundation, a think tank on regulation of the cannabis market. Epicurus has organized two well-attended conferences in Utrecht -‘The Transparant Chain I and II’- and took the initiative for the Grass Poll survey and Cannabis Connect, which now represents over 220 coffeeshops.
Hij heeft een unieke positie in de coffeeshopbranche: Bart Vollenberg bezit coffeeshops in Almere en Lelystad, is bestuurslid van de beide landelijke coffeeshopbonden PCN en BCD en oprichter van de stichting Epicurus Foundation, een denktank over regulering van de cannabismarkt. Epicurus organiseerde twee drukbezochte congressen in Utrecht, De Transparante Keten I en II en nam het initiatief voor de Grass Poll enquête en Cannabis Connect, waarbij inmiddels meer dan 220 coffeeshops bij aan zijn gesloten.

How The Assassination Of RFK Changed The Life Of A Busboy (HBO)

Ever since he was a young boy, the Kennedy name has meant something special to Juan Romero. Growing up in Mexico, he remembers every house having a crucifix, with a picture of the pope on one side and a picture of President John F. Kennedy on the other.

When he moved to Los Angeles as a teenager, he witnessed John’s brother, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, marching with Cesar Chavez.

“Some people would say he could be rubbing elbows with royalty instead of walking down dirt roads with farm laborers,” Romero said. “What I felt about Robert Kennedy was that he was a champion of equal rights for everybody.”

On the night of June 4th, 1968, Romero was working as a busboy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. Kennedy had just won the California Democratic Primary and was giving a victory speech in the ballroom of the hotel. Romero listened from the kitchen and hoped he might get the chance to shake the senator’s hand before he departed.
