So now we find out that in Nevada there was only one violent act

and it was a Hillary Supporter. And then the media lies that followed.

At least we can see that the truth is starting to come out.

I really think that the Hillary campaign has blown this big time. If Sanders isn't the candidate, then Trump is our next President. And the polls show just that.

vote for Hillary, despite all of the BS that is happening.

And that is only because I fear a republican controlled SCOTUS.

You'll love them. They'll use the -BEST- words...many of them important legal words.

If those justices get confirmed, it won't be on Trump. It'll be on a lack of Democratic Senators, why?

Failure to control the Senate is going to be on DWS, not Sanders.

making death threats, using vile language towards party leaders and booing a sitting United States Senator are not offensive acts? Any chair throwing is but one part of a thoroughly offensive convention in Nevada.

...through intimidation and bullying.

Hillary won Nevada in Feb. The results of the convention matched the results of that election. The sanders people weren't entitled to anything more, especially since Hillary's folks showed up and voted at the convention in greater numbers than Sanders'.

And then Lange threw those votes out. It was Lange who subverted the will of the NV voters.

But you keep on telling tall tales and maybe some will believe you.

...and the credentials committee was evenly divided between campaigns.

You lost in Feb. and that was confirmed at the convention. You failed at intimidating party officials there into reversing that correct result. You failed to steal those Hillary pledged delegates with the deliberate disruption of the convention. End of story.

12. From Newsweek:

"The unseemly tirade of Sanders supporters was a marvel, the kind of behavior more likely to be seen among British soccer hooligans than people claiming to be interested in politics. A chair was thrown. People screamed “bitch!” at Senator Barbara Boxer, a staunch liberal from California. Even the Nevada state Democratic chairwoman, Roberta Lange, who had endorsed Sanders, needed a security detail just to go to the bathroom in order to protect her from the hypocritical “humanity lovers” who seem to hate everyone but themselves and their idol.

Do you have a link that shows where she endorses Bernie other than Newsweek saying so?

She's not listed on Bernie's site or the neutral wiki site.



In January, she was uncommitted: See this pdf put out by the DNC - https://cdn3.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/6070545/Unpledged_as_of_1.21.16.0.pdf 

In February, she was still uncommitted: http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/269348-clinton-has-superdelegate-edge-in-nevada-south-carolina 

Roberta Lange, state party chair (Neutral): Lange has decided to stay neutral, as many party leaders have ahead of contests in their state. A former county Democratic chair, she served as former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson’s state director during his failed bid for the presidency in 2008.

By April, she was still uncommitted: 

April: https://www.laprogressive.com/who-are-the-superdelegates/ 

477 Harry Reid NV Sen. Clinton 
478 Dina Titus NV Rep. Clinton 
479 Artie Blanco NV DNC None 
480 Roberta Lange NV DNC None 
481 Chris Wicker NV DNC None 
482 Erin Bilbray NV DNC Sanders

And we don't have any proof of any death threats. Just the words of proven liars.

I truly believe that there are agent provocateurs in these crowds. Just like COINTELPRO
