It's not just GoldmanSachs. Major banks have paid Hill & Blli more than SIX MILLION $$$ since 2004

& donated up to $24.9 million to their "questionable" foundation.

Are there any elected politicians in SC or other Southern states that aren't Christian?

How much does Bernie's lack of religion hurt him in these states?

#whichHillary hashtag being censored by twitter exec in advance of fundraiser

In a truly egregious move yesterday, Twitter suspended the account responsible for #WhichHillary, activists @GuerrillaDems. Twitter also removed #WhichHillary from trending status ó odd, considering the hashtag received more than 450,000 tweets (and a similar amount of goats) in less than 24 hours.

This isnít the first time Twitter has exerted political control like this. It is also a demonstrable conflict of interest, in light of Twitter Executive Chairman Omid Kordestaniís Sunday, 2/28 fundraiser with Clinton.

It is no secret that media execs possess enormous editorial influence. Rupert Murdoch has proven the potent political power of media ownership, using Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, and his media empire to propagate conservative ideology. Together with News Corp, five other companies control 90% of American media, arguably promoting their own political agendas as well. [Check out Fairness & Accuracy in Reportingís fantastic look at media healthcare coverage.]

Social media was supposed to provide a counterweight. It is awful & disappointing to see Twitter censor its users for political reasons alone.

Urgent:If you don't know the propaganda tactic Hitler perfected, you need to learn it now!

The patent lie that Sanders shouted "speak English" into a microphone during the Nevada caucus, the patent lie Capehart spread that Bernie was not in the sit-in photo are not innocent mistakes nor are they the result of simple laziness on the part of the so-called reporters.

The Big Lie

These are examples of what Hitler considered to be his most effective propaganda tactic which he termed The Big Lie where a known falsehood is stated and repeated and treated as if it is self-evidently true in hopes of swaying public opinion in a direction that takes the big lie for granted rather than critically questioning it or ignoring it.

In Mein Kampf, Hitler states,

....the broad masses more readily fall victim to the big lie than the small lie...It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. ....For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.


So if you find yourself scratching your head baffled why anyone would state a patent falsehood about Bernie, don't fall into the trap of arguing that the reporter is either clueless or lazy, name it for what it is - a devious underhanded tactic designed to manipulate public opinion.

It is essential that Bernie supporters spread the word about this tactic so people get hip to what is actually happening.

"Up front there ought 'a be a Man In Black". Cash singing Man in Black for the 1st time.


Whenever I hear anyone dis Bernie as being too angry, I think of this song and how Bernie, like Cash, is a man in black.




"Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.

Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black."
