Poll: Clinton, Sanders in a dead heat in Calif.
By Mark Hensch

Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are in a virtual dead heat in California, a new poll shows.

Clinton has 46 percent support to Sanders's 44 percent, according to The Public Policy Institute of California survey released Wednesday.

When the poll results are filtered down to just registered Democrats, Clinton leads Sanders, 49 percent to 41 percent.

California's June 7 contest is an open primary, meaning voters who are not registered Democrats may participate. The state offers 475 pledged delegates — the largest total of any state.

There is little gender gap in the poll totals. Sanders had 46 percent of men, with Clinton garnering 42 percent. Among women, Clinton led with 49 percent support to Sanders's 42 percent...



Again, it is a question of her ELECTABILITY

I do not condone the witch hunt with Judicial Watch, and quite frankly, I do not understand how they are allowed to depose anyone. In other words, I DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THIS!!! However, the Judicial Watch witch hunt is a reality and they will be releasing this sort of crap throughout the primary. To stick our heads in the sand and act like it isn't going to have an effect is so incredibly naive.

Clinton aid tries to block release of deposition tape in email case

By Julian Hattem - 05/25/16 06:45 PM EDT

Lawyers for a former top aide to Hillary Clinton filed a motion on Wednesday asking a federal court to bar a conservative watchdog group from releasing a videotape of her upcoming deposition as part of a lawsuit related to Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of State.

The aide, Cheryl Mills, “supports the release of the written transcript of her deposition to the public,” her lawyers wrote in a filing on Wednesday. “But no additional public interest would be served by the publication of the audiovisual recording.”

The lawyers said they "are concerned that snippets or soundbites of the deposition may be publicized in a way that exploits Ms. Mills’ image and voice in an unfair and misleading manner...”


...Earlier this month, lawyers for the organization began conducting those depositions.

Mills, Clinton’s former chief of staff, is scheduled to be deposed on Friday in a session that could last as long as seven hours.

Lawyers for Mills said in their Wednesday filing that Judicial Watch had “refused” to agree not to publicize any portion of the video from the deposition...



HEADS UP!! Big Networks CANCEL Exit Polls in all the remaining states.

I guess that includes CA.

Gee, I wonder why they would do a thing like that.


does anyone know the exit polls on KY and OR? n/t

Warning: "Bernie Glowstick Instructions" meme is trying to get people hospitalized or killed.

ON EDIT: This is pretty serious stuff. I feel confident that DU can put aside all the Bernie-Hillary squabbling and rally together to spread the word about this dangerous meme. Thanks!

Warning: "Bernie Glowstick Instructions" meme is trying to get people hospitalized or killed.

These are not instructions for glowsticks, they're instructions for making a chlorine bomb.

A meme shared on Tumblr and Reddit instructs people to mix household chemicals together in order to make a glowstick.

Except the instructions are lifted from a how-to guide for making a chlorine bomb out of common chemicals. This device overpressurizes its container and explodes. The explosion releases deadly chlorine gas which when inhaled, interacts with the water in mucus membranes to transform into hydrochloric acid. It causes chemical burns in the throat, eyes, and lungs. It has been used as a chemical weapon for just over 100 years, and was first introduced by the German Empire at the second battle of Ypres in 1915, and most recently used by terrorists in Iraq and Syria who were targeting civilians with makeshift devices such as the one described in this meme.

I’ve removed the actual instructions for the device because some people are stupid and might try to see what would happen if they made one of these.

Please make sure that if you see someone sharing this meme, you explain that it’s a trap.


I am very confused by the 51% to 38%..

Bernie currently has 112,000, Hillary has 79,000 (I'm rounding the numbers) which makes a total of 191,000. But according to The Guardian, 219,000 votes have been counted. Who got the other 28,000 votes?

Any ideas?

A beautiful sight.

Guccifer: Tells how he hacked, saw evidence of up to 10 other hackers from other parts of the world

MotherJones is now reporting on a FoxNews interview with Guccifer:

Wearing a green jumpsuit, Lazar was relaxed and polite in the monitored secure visitor center, separated by thick security glass. In describing the process, Lazar said he did extensive research on the web and then guessed Blumenthal’s security question. Once inside Blumenthal's account, Lazar said he saw dozens of messages from the Clinton email address.

Asked if he was curious about the address, Lazar merely smiled. Asked if he used the same security question approach to access the Clinton emails, he said no — then described how he allegedly got inside.

“For example, when Sidney Blumenthal got an email, I checked the email pattern from Hillary Clinton, from Colin Powell from anyone else to find out the originating IP. … When they send a letter, the email header is the originating IP usually,” Lazar explained.

He said, “then I scanned with an IP scanner." Lazar emphasized that he used readily available web programs to see if the server was “alive” and which ports were open. Lazar identified programs like netscan, Netmap, Wireshark and Angry IP, though it was not possible to confirm independently which, if any, he used.

In the process of mining data from the Blumenthal account, Lazar said he came across evidence that others were on the Clinton server. "As far as I remember, yes, there were … up to 10, like, IPs from other parts of the world,” he said.


I hope everyone realizes that this is only the beginning. Trump will make this an issue and it will be in the news non-stop now. Reality TV at it's finest. First the server, then the pay-to-play and the FBI investigation. Accusations will fly that Obama's Justice Department is blocking the indictment, and democrats will be on the defensive. This cannot end well. The republicans will threaten to start impeachment proceedings if she is nominated. The public will be reminded of all the Clinton scandals and become disenchanted.

Whether any of it is true or not is almost irrelevant. It will be relentless.

She needs to get out of the race NOW.
