Hill attack dog Brock demands Bernie halt his

negative campaigning against Hillary the paragon. There is no one more vile in dem politics. Filthy.



A high-profile ally of Hillary Clinton is calling on Sen. Bernie Sanders to “immediately halt all negative campaigning” against the Democratic front-runner.

David Brock, founder of the Correct the Record super PAC, released a letter to Mr. Sanders Tuesday warning him that he could damage Mrs. Clinton’s chances against Republicans if he attacks her character and motivations.

The letter reflects a growing confidence in Mrs. Clinton’s camp that coming off her victory in the Nevada caucuses on Saturday she is in strong position to capture the Democratic nomination. Mrs. Clinton won two of the first three Democratic contests. Next up is the South Carolina primary on Saturday. A majority of the state’s Democratic voters are African-American, a loyal Clinton constituency, and polls show she is favored to win.

Mr. Brock, in an interview, said he grew concerned about Mr. Sanders’s intentions after seeing some of his statements following the Nevada caucuses. Mr. Sanders suggested during a news conference on Monday in Boston that his rival inevitably will be influenced by the millions of dollars in “special interest money” flowing into the main pro-Clinton super PAC, Priorities USA Action.

“Now, maybe they are dummies,” Mr. Sanders said of Wall Street interests. “And maybe they just think they throw millions of dollars and expect to get nothing. Maybe. I doubt that very much.”

You can't talk rationally to irrational people. Examining their candidate? They don't give a damn. They certainly can't let any facts get in the way. It might cause a short circuit. They never explain what programs they support. I'm sorry but when the only thing some of them can come up with is that she is a woman, that is sexism in the first degree.

U.S. judge orders discovery to go forward over Clinton’s private email system
By Spencer S. Hsu February 23 at 3:21 PM

A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that State Department officials and top aides to Hillary Clinton should be questioned under oath about whether they intentionally thwarted federal open records laws by using or allowing the use of a private email server throughout Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of Washington came in a lawsuit over public records brought by Judicial Watch, a conservative legal watchdog group, regarding its May 2013 request, for information about the employment arrangement of Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide.

A State Department official said that the department is aware of the order and that it is reviewing it but declined to comment further, citing the ongoing litigation. Discovery orders are not readily appealable. An attorney for Abedin declined to comment.

Sullivan set an April deadline for parties to work out a detailed investigative plan--subject to court approval--that would reach well beyond the limited and carefully worded explanations of the use of the private server that department and Clinton officials have given.

Sullivan also suggested from the bench that he might at some point order the department to subpoena Clinton and Abedin, to return all records related to Clinton’s private account, not just those their camps have previously deemed work-related and returned.

“There has been a constant drip, drip, drip of declarations. When does it stop?” Sullivan said, adding that months of piecemeal revelations about Clinton and the State Department’s handling of the email controversy create “at least a ‘reasonable suspicion’ ” that public access to official government records under the federal Freedom of Information Act was undermined. “This case is about the public’s right to know.”

In granting Judicial Watch’s request, Sullivan noted that there was no dispute that senior State Department officials were aware of the email set-up, citing a January 2009 email exchange including Undersecretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, Clinton chief of staff Cheryl D. Mills and Abedin about establishing a “stand-alone network” email system.

The watchdog group did not ask to depose Clinton by name, but its requests in its lawsuit targeted those who handled her transition, arrival and departure from the department and who oversaw Abedin, a direct subordinate.

Sullivan’s decision came as Clinton seeks the Democratic presidential nomination and three weeks after the State Department acknowledged for the first time that “top secret” information passed through the server.

Erin Burnett of CNN kept asking him that last night and Brock kept dodging, but Burnett and the Sanders surrogate weren't buying it. The Sanders guy was laughing at him.

Sanders people know she is going to win SC and the other states in her pocket just like she knew he was going to win NH. Losing the next few states wouldn't mean anything unless he had to go to big donors for funding, which of course he doesn't. So it's irrelevant.

Bernie's in for the long haul and he just might win it. Brock is nothing, nobody cares what he wants or thinks.

34. Projection
Tue Feb 23, 2016, 03:40 PM
Feb 2016

Psychological projection, also known as blame shifting, is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unpleasant impulses by denying their existence while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude.

According to some research, the projection of one's negative qualities onto others is a common process in everyday life.

Do you mean DAVID Brock?
THE David Brock?

That`s rich. Brock is accusing Bernie of the very thing Brock does for a living....smear.

This is Hillary's hit man, an admitted liar

''I demonized Democratic senators, their staffs, and Hill's feminist supporters without ever interviewing any of them,'' he continued.

Tue Feb 23, 2016, 03:49 PM

these sums out of the goodness of their heart.

So, this is the new tactic. Paint Bernie as a negative campaigner. How about she "unites" with Bernie and refuses these big corporate donations and gets behind repealing Citizen United rather than just talk about it. Her hypocrisy is mind boggling.

...he pales compared to the horrid Ted Cruz and his campaign manager.

Yes, I know all about Brock and Anita Hill and how he was outed as gay then did a 180 degree flip. I lived thru it. But Ted Cruz and his father believe Ted IS the messiah - literally. His campaign manager is way worse than Brock.

Brock's innuendos against Bernie will come back to bite he and Hillary in the butt - just like his mud-slinging against Anita Hill.

Still waiting for Clinton to shut down Brock for similar.

When Ted Cruz can legitimately claim the moral high ground from you, you have a problem.

You're hurting her chances of claiming the nomination. Meanwhile your candidate didn't fight for civil rights (someone else did), your candidate only cares about one issue, and his supporters are racists.

Again, leave my candidate alone!

about Bernie. She truly does lie about Bernie in these debates/town halls. It's disgusting and I'm getting more fed up about HRC's attacks then Brock is about BS.

assuming she's the nominee, it's not like Republicans are incapable of looking at the same donation data Sanders' campaign used, and you can bet Trump will call her on it. having Brock say "knock it off guys" just isn't going to cut it.

You are a Karl Rove sperm specimen...You use the Karl Rove,Lee Atwater tactics like a bully on a playground .....You the bully push a kid down and then run to the teacher and claim "Johnny Hit me"
The Karl Rove method is Attack yoour opponent then Attack again and then when they respond you accuse them of attacking.
If this is the kind of People Hillary Clinton prefers to use within her campaign then she is not a Democrat and she is obviously desperate.


Tell you what you do David Brock GPUAR..Translated that means "GO PISS UP A ROPE"

This is what I've talked about with Hillary Clinton using Republican/Right Wing Advisors and why people still support her is unbelievable.


So David,Ever been near one near a Porta-Jon when a contractor is pumping it out....You know that Horrible smell that comes from that truck?..Well that is the smell you emit when you open your mouth.

Hillary and her attack machine live in an alternative universe. Her and her minions go out there and spew all kind of misinformation and outright lies about Bernie and if he counters, it's HIM who is being divisive.
Looks and sounds just like the GOP and how they treated Obama.
The GOOD new is that they are getting known for who they are.
Bernie will win.
