Does Clinton now have it in the bag? Should Bernie just throw in the towel?


Clinton has NOTHING in the bag. Not yet. The primaries haven't happened yet.

See, NO one in the establishment wants Bernie as the Democratic candidate. Why? Because he's speaking truth to power and because he's honest and incorruptible. He gets in the way of the oligarchs, because the MIC, Wall Street and the rest of the 1/10 of 1% corporate overlords are making their move to end nation states through the TPP. Read it if you don't believe me.

Sanders is damned inconvenient for the establishment's chosen one, because in spite of the corporate-owned 'news' channels, pundits and pollsters all saying Clinton 'has this in the bag,' there's one thing they are not saying but are definitely worried about. They do not control the dialog. 20 years ago or even 15, this would have been death to Bernie's campaign because the establishment CONTROLLED THE DIALOG through its big, swollen, throbbing, erect mass media, which would dutifully spew out whatever bullshit the corporate overlords wanted.

Too bad for them that in 2015 THEY DO NOT CONTROL THE DIALOG. We do. Through portals like this, blogs, social media. Everyone I know and associate with is still going to caucus for Bernie in my state, and others in other locations are saying the same. Even the latest meme, 'Bernie can sell mugs and tee shirts and fill arenas, but he can't win" hasn't worked the way Clinton surrogates and the rest of the establishment want. In fact, we've had meme after meme after meme get overturned, but you know what?

Tens of thousands of people like me, who are fucking sick, puking sick, about how those we elect to represent us don't uphold our interests at all are PUSHING BACK. We are controlling the dialog and we're gonna shoot down this new meme just like all the others with a big truth bomb.

You know why? Because I'm fucking sick to death of my shitty, rationed healthcare and worrying about cuts to Social Security. I'm fucking TIRED of my kids having forever loans because they had the temerity to attend college. I'm fucking MAD. I want MY tax dollars spent on programs that benefit ME and my family for a change, instead of another immoral forever war.

I'm tired of this shit, and in my opinion, Clinton is just another Third Way shill. She's not gonna help me. She's not gonna help you. She's not gonna help your sons, daughters, grandsons or granddaughters. She isn't.

She's gonna help Wall Street and the MIC because they are who butters her bread.

So, if you are for Bernie, let's push back hard on this one and get the truth out on every social media site. Because our guy, the ONLY one who has actually cared about US since FDR, Jack and Bobby, is getting RATFUCKED. Let's fight back.

6. Very nice

and you are most certainly not alone feeling exactly like this. Yours are the reasons he is doing well and will take this to the White House. Thank you for articulating this so well. Doing what we can always. NGU, there is no way we can give up when he is doing this for us, all of us.

8. Clinton, DWS and the DNC are blowing this BIG TIME

Debbie Wassermann Schultz has got to have one of the worst television presences ... ever.

She is peevish, contentious and so obviously and clearly bias.

So, this is going to be a big plus for Sanders -- now he really does look like the underdog fighting against the bullying, power-hungry, establishment machine.

And the Clinton campaign is already suspect to a lot of folks ... the email scandal coupled with this computer mess is a de facto negative for Hillary. Scandal and the Clintons, the Rove overtones of this data breach imbroglio is going to taint her.

Ironic since the Sanders campaign has admitted the transgression and already taken action inside its own campaign; but that only makes Sanders look like he and his organization can handle difficult problems.

This may drive the Hillarians to be even more angry and rabid, but this incident could be the turning point that catapults Sanders and begins the decline of tired, stick-in-the-mud Hillary that a lot of us knew was going to happen eventually.
