The Fourth 2019 Democratic Debate: Key Moments | NYT News


“This is the CNN/New York Times
Democratic presidential debate.” “Sometimes there
are issues that are bigger than politics. And I think that’s the case
with this impeachment inquiry.” “In my judgment,
Trump is the most corrupt president in the
history of this country.” “He has committed
crimes in plain sight. And on this issue
with Ukraine, he has been selling
out our democracy.” “I want to give a reality check
here to Elizabeth, because no one on this stage
wants to protect billionaires. Not even the billionaire
wants to protect billionaires. We just have
different approaches. Your idea is not
the only idea.” “You have not
specified how you’re going to pay for the
most expensive plan, ‘Medicare for all.’ Will you raise taxes
on the middle class?” “I have made clear what
my principles are here. And that is: Costs will
go up for the wealthy and for big corporations. And for hard-working
middle-class families, costs will go down.” “A yes-or-no question that
didn’t get a yes-or-no answer.” “Senator Warren, I just want to say that I was
surprised to hear that you did not agree with me that on
this subject of what should be the rules around
corporate responsibility for these big tech companies, when I called on Twitter to
suspend Donald Trump’s account that you did not agree. And I would urge you
to join me.” “Sometimes I think that
Senator Warren is more focused on being punitive or pitting
some part of the country against the other.” “I’m really shocked
at the notion that anyone thinks
I’m punitive. Look, I don’t have a
beef with billionaires. We need a wealth tax in
order to make investments in the next generation.” “If it’s not O.K. for
a president’s family to be involved in
foreign businesses, why was it O.K. for your son
when you were vice president?” “Look, my son did
nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong. Rudy Giuliani, the president
and his thugs have already proven that they,
in fact, are flat lying.” “What has happened
in Syria is yet again Donald Trump
selling folks out. And that’s why dude gotta go. And when I am
commander in chief, we will stop this madness.” “Donald Trump has the blood
of the Kurds on his hand. But so do many of the
politicians in our country from both parties who have
supported this ongoing regime-change war in Syria
that started in 2011.” “I think that is dead wrong. The slaughter
going on in Syria is not a consequence
of American presence. It’s a consequence of a
withdrawal and a betrayal. And when I was
deployed, I knew one of the things
keeping me safe was the fact that the
flag on my shoulder represented a country
known to keep its word.” “Think about how absurd it is
that this president is caging kids on the border and effectively letting
ISIS prisoners run free.” “We have ISIS —
it’s going to come here. They are going
to, in fact, damage the United States of America. That’s why we got involved
in the first place.” “Protect small business
and protect consumers.” “They don’t know how this
is going to affect their jobs.” “This is a disease of
capitalism run amok.” “Have a 15-member court.” “Police violence is
also gun violence.” “Women are the majority of the
population in this country. People need to keep their
hands off of women’s bodies and let women
make the decisions about their own lives.” “Thank you, senator.” “I’m going to say something
that is probably going to offend some people here, but I’m the only one on
this stage who’s gotten anything really big done.” “But you know what
you also got done? And I say this
as a good friend. You got the disastrous
war in Iraq done. You got a bankruptcy bill,
which is hurting middle-class families
all over this country. You got trade agreements like
Nafta, P.N.T.R. with China done, which have cost us
4 million jobs.” “So you started this
question with how you got something done. You know, following the
financial crash of 2008, I had an idea for
a consumer agency.” “And I went on the floor
and got you votes. I got votes for that bill. I convinced people
to vote for it. So let’s get those things
straight, too.” “Senator Warren,
do you want to respond?” “I am deeply grateful
to President Obama, who fought so hard to
make sure that agency was passed into law.” “You did a hell of a job
in your job.” “Thank you.” “Now to the issue of
candidates and their health.” “I’m feeling great,
but I would like to respond
to that question.” “Well, I want to —— I want to start by saying ——” “And Senator Sanders is in
favor of medical marijuana. I want to make sure
that’s clear as well.” “I do. I’m not on it tonight.”

  1. Clearly Tulsi Gabbard is the most important presidential candidate of my lifetime (I'm 74 years old).

    She may be the last chance we have to reign in  an 'out of control' and an increasingly imperialistic nation.

    The United States of America has become a BEAST, a BEAST prowling the world with foreign military bases, aircraft carriers, and predator drones, ready to bully and if necessary destroy any nation daring to disagree with it's world view.

    Its message to the world is clear — Bow and bow deeply.

    Difficult to admit but – WE ARE NO LONGER THE GOOD GUYS

    The BEAST is clearly aware of the threat it faces from Tulsi Gabbard and is not happy.

    Tulsi has courageously stepped forward to lead the effort to confront.  Other candidates turn away from the Beast, refusing to look.

    Tulsi sees the Beast and looks directly in its eyes — staring it down.

    For this election, the main issue is to control the BEAST.  As for other issues:

    Health care – a side show.

    Gun control- side show.

    So, if health care and gun control are side shows, what is the main show?

    'The main show' – concern for  those who die as a direct result of United States sanctions: the children, the weak, the vulnerable, the aged.

    500,000 in Iraq under Clinton. 60,000 (so far) in Venezuela under Obama and Trump — 80,000 in Yemen and there are more —- does anyone know the number of dead in Iraq, Syria, Iran, North Korea. The US caused carnage is staggering.

    Yes, modern war is less about young men fighting and dying. Modern warfare is about children and old people dying — dying from lack of medicines and food. Dying of suffocation brought on by sanctions.

    ”The main show” — million's of people around the world driven from their homes by war and the threat of war — why — because they failed to bow.

    ”The main show” — hundreds of thousands of young boys and men, killed defending their peasant villages from an alien invader -why- because it is part of every young mans’ and womans’ DNA to protect their home, their family, their village.

    ”The main show” – Eight (8) $Trillion squandered –why– because the BEAST is insatiable.

    ”The main show” —  A million of our young men and women destined to live their lives with the nightmare memories of dangers they have faced and the feeling of guilt of the horrors they have perpetuated –WHY– because it is part of every young mans’ and womans’ DNA to protect their home, their family, their village.

    A vote for any candidate other than Tulsi is a vote to feed the beast, to empower and further assist it in its brutal ways.

    The BEAST is angry at Tulsi Gabbard and the BEAST is using it's many tools to destroy the Tulsi movement.

    The New York Times has obviously decided to feed the beast, as has CNN, as has the Democratic National Committee, as has the Republican National Committee.

    Their message is clear: slander Tulsi, slander, Tulsi, slander Tulsi.

    Keep in mind that Tulsi was at one time the Golden Girl of the Democratic Party. AT the age of 33 she was elected to be the vice chair. Heir apparent. The rising star.

    She then gave it all up because of the outrage she felt when it was clear that the DNC had, behind closed doors, chose Hillary over Bernie and used its pervasive influence to see that Hillary was nominated. This begs the question, can a person of integrity exist within our political system.

    Ask any acquaintance their opinion of Tulsi, and you are likely get a blank look (like – who is she?), or they will ask you if she is the one who supports brutal dictators.

    The BEAST is very powerful and is in control of the tools traditionally used to manipulate (like the New York Times) — and is busy manipulating your image of Tulsi. Do not fall for it.

    Be a skeptic, use your brain, think, act

    If it is not you and me, then who

    If it is not now, when

  2. The NY Times, is a disgusting rag, at the low level of the National Enquirer, after the disgusting smear job, of Tulsi Gabbard. Utterly SHAMEFUL!!!!!

  3. Their goes the Clown News Network snd The New York Slimes in cahoots together playing the TDS game. Why don’t you say like go over the issues that normal Americans might find useful instead of your tried and failed nonsense

  4. Gabbard was right about what she said about the NYT. This video of "Key moments" spliced to make her look like she lost the exchange with Buttigieg is foolish and wildly inaccurate.

  5. Much as it pains me to say this, but even if I’ve been unimpressed by the serial failure of the USA’s mobster-in-chief to give proper answers to questions from the meeja I’m equally unimpressed by the non-answers that some members of the USA’s Democratic Party, including one of my favorites, gave during the debate among twelve hopefuls that happened in Westerville, Ohio, on Tuesday 15 October 2019.

    If I were registered as a voter in elections in the USA then I would say “work in progress”.

  6. We need to get 60%of these people off stage, so the candidates that truly matter can speak. Some of these people have no chance of winning, but are still on stage wasting the time of true candidates.

  7. They're tearing each other down and beating each other up and at the end of the fight, Trump will stand victorious because they're fighting the wrong battle. Very short sighted.

  8. This video is useless. I wonder why it has only half a sentence from Bernie and Yang as well.
    Oh, because corporate elites made this you say?
    Of course.

  9. Only the Dems have been corrupt. It's really amazing to see Dems go after Trump Jr but cry foul when Hunter bidden is called into question. Only the Dems conspired to oust Trump.

  10. We have a country with real problems and these clowns sound like grade school children with no clue! That's how we got President Trump…

  11. We need a 2020 answer, everyone but Andrew Yang running for your President have multiple policies on their agenda that are outdated. Andrew has a little bit of socialism in him thanks to Berine. Elizabeth Warens position on taxing multi billionaires (50M-999B) is not a bad one either. If Andrew Yang's universal basic income can't be supported through taxing huge companies and corporations he could always raise the taxes for the multi millionaires and up to allocate funds for building a better future.

    Andrew also has great solutions for 21st century problems. Its the 4th 'industrial' wave, don't let the big tech companies fool us. Why wait with another President? Vote Yang in your Primaries! Lets get his name on that ballot. Yang 2020!

    The media isn't giving him the coverage he deserves, spread his name!

  12. Can someone tell these guys America isn’t a democracy? They get it wrong so often and I don’t know how you can put any of these people in charge of the government of they don’t know what it is.

  13. This coverage covers nothing, more so it removes importants answers from E.Warren and totally ignores A.Yang. Those a just small examples of why I won't ever turn on another New York Times video again.

  14. @New York Times: At some point, you'll have to explain your bias against Andrew Yang who clearly outperformed your chosen "front-runner" candidates. The debate was even formatted around Yang's key policy proposals yet you continue to silence the only contender who has proven to win over both left and right voters.

  15. These people are to dishonest to run a government the size of the U.S. l would suggest that they try something that take no mental compassity like a small banana republic somewhere. It's a shame they aren't fooling anybody

  16. The D-BAG CIRCULAR FIRING SQUAD… its such a hoot! Keep it up D-BAGS… TRUMP will win for sure with these CIRCUS FREAKS running on the D-BAG Ticket.

  17. Don Trump wins Democrat debates 4 for 4 by default! Most said words: TAXES followed by IMPEACHMENT followed by TRUMP. That is not a winning solution for Democrats.

  18. The Yang Gang on a brief hiatus to regain speed on the campaign trail.
    The remaining candidates seem to clamber aboard the impeachment bandwagon.
    Bernie was unable in deference to his age but still in the running.
    The clear front runner Joe wishes these aspiring campaigners would pull the tent pegs and quit annoying him and the voters with inane questions.
    The exception Tulsi Gabbard with her ability to become a first rate running mate in the Biden express train on the tracks to leave the also rans at the station platform.
    However it all seems up for debate as these recent television forums would indicate.

  19. When nearly half the candidates said climate change was the greatest geopolitical threat in the first or second debate, not one question about climate change?

  20. It's amazing how each and every candidate in this debate are trying hard to make up their minds or appear to be confused.

  21. Do not even try to ask Pocahontas anything, as Hillary Version 2.0, comfortable INVENTING new LIES, even truth serves better.

  22. pretty sure everyone always knows whos they are voting for. these debates are just for the candidates to bring money into their campaigns

  23. Hillary come back, save us from drowning, you have the power to eliminate all of them by hook and crook when the convention convenes. Hillary 2020 risk it, so what if you lost twice, 3 times is the charm! BTW, what has Bill been up to lately? Is he still alive or stuck on Epstein
    's Island??

  24. This format is an insult to the voters. It allows no hopers to clog up the air and prevent real contenders from fully laying out their agenda to the electorate. It's a quest for sound bites that can be played the next day by the mainstream media. And what's really sad is that European media is starting to copy this garbage style of media hackery. Biden should be facing corruption charges rather than preening himself on a stage in front of TV cameras. They all come across as nauseating….with the exception of Gabbard and Sanders.

  25. Debate: Trump is bad, illegals are good, everything for everybody. NO specifics. as usual. Does ANYONE know under WHAT specific charges the President is going to be impeached? High crimes (WHAT crimes) and misdemeanors (WHAT misdemeanors)

  26. = mc2   (well, a variation)
    1.  If you were to strip naked and run around in a circle at the speed of 186,282 miles/sec (the speed of light), it would theoretically be possible for you to screw yourself.
     2. However, since you are not physically capable of achieving that speed at your age, you can also accomplish the same result by:  Voting Democrat in the next November election.

    This was a Public Service Announcement

  27. Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney Phoney All twelve of them together couldn’t hold a candle to or for President Trump

  28. "This is CNN The most trusted name in news Facts first The worldwide leader in news Reporting from around the world The world's news leader"
    “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”
    “Think of the press as a great keyboard
    on which the government can play.”
    ― Joseph Goebbels

  29. Notice how ''none'' of them tell us what they will do and how they will accomplish their goals for USA..Tell us all that .
