Major Florida newspaper endorses Hillary Clinton in democratic primary, endorses no republican

By dailynewsbin |





March 5, 2016




Just ten days before the democratic and republican primaries are set to take place in Florida, one of the state’s most popular and influential newspapers has officially spoken in both races. On the democratic side, the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel is endorsing Hillary Clinton, because she’s “telling voters what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.” But on the republican side, the newspaper is taking the unusual primary season step of refusing to endorse any of the bunch.

In an Editorial Board piece titled “Why we can’t endorse Trump, Rubio, Cruz or Kasich,” the Sun-Sentinel makes the case against all four of them. Donald Trump “lacks the experience and temperament to be president.” Marco Rubio, the home-state senator and native son of nearby Miami, “lacks the experience, work ethic and gravitas needed to be president.” As for tea party extremist Ted Cruz? He “scares us.” And as for John Kasich, “we can’t urge you to vote for someone who doesn’t have a chance of winning the nomination.” It’s a wholesale rejection of the entire republican slate.

LINCOLN —...................................

..................Bill Clinton stumped in Lincoln and Omaha on Friday. He drew more than 700 people to his Omaha appearance at the Benson nightclub — including 300 who couldn’t make it into the packed lounge and wound up in an overflow room. Another 800 people saw him at the Lincoln Station Great Hall.

His visit came a day after his wife’s rival, Bernie Sanders, held a rally in Lincoln that brought more than 4,000 to the Lied Center for Performing Arts.

Today’s caucuses will allow Nebraska Democrats to take sides on whether they want Sanders or Hillary Clinton to run against the Republican nominee in the fall election.

More than 38,000 Democrats showed up at the state party’s first caucuses in 2008. Officials are hoping for a bigger turnout this year, although no one knows how many will show up.

It is also unclear which candidate is likely to win. There have been no public polls released, and no evidence that either campaign has surveyed the state.

Bill Clinton suggested that his wife has the momentum after the past week — including Super Tuesday, when she outpaced Sanders by winning more states and more national delegates.
................

During his 40-minute speech in Omaha, Clinton touched upon many of the themes that have dominated his wife’s speeches, including her argument that she is the only candidate in the race who has the experience and the will to work with members of the Republican Party to get things done.

.....................While both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders bring strengths and weaknesses, caucus-goers would help their party most by giving their support to Hillary Clinton...........................




During the campaign, Clinton has shown herself to be more moderate than President Barack Obama. Over the years she has learned that in a democracy, politics is the art of the achievable.



...................

Who would be the most qualified, most talented and most able to represent the party’s viewpoint in November, thus giving Americans a serious, substantive, issue-oriented debate about the country’s future?

Hillary Clinton brings credentials and breadth unmatched by her Democratic opponent, as well as a pragmatic ability to get things done in what no doubt will remain a divided Capitol.

Nebraska Democrats can help their party most by choosing Hillary Clinton to carry their banner in the fall.

Trump, Clinton look to extend leads as five more states vote
1 Hour Ago Reuters

Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton each look to strengthen their front-runner status when five states hold presidential nominating races on Saturday, as Trump tries to weather a barrage of blistering attacks from his party's establishment.

...........................

On the Democratic side, voters in Louisiana, Kansas and Nebraska will weigh in on Saturday on the race between Clinton, the former secretary of state, and Bernie Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont.

Polls show Clinton with a big lead in Louisiana, which has a large bloc of the African-American voters, who helped her roll up victories across the South on Super Tuesday, but the caucuses in less diverse Kansas and Nebraska could be more suited to Sanders. The three states have a total of 109 delegates at stake.

Clinton has opened up a big delegate lead on Sanders, who might have a tough time making up the difference. All states in the Democratic race award their delegates proportionally, meaning Clinton can keep piling up delegates even in states where she loses.

Report: Sanders proposes $15T in tax increases, hitting most taxpayers








Report: Sanders proposes $15T in tax increases, hitting most taxpayers


By Brian Faler

Updated 03/04/16 04:58 PM EST


Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has proposed $15.3 trillion in tax increases, according to a new report, and would raise rates on virtually everyone, including the politically all-important middle class.

Not surprisingly for a candidate who has made income inequality his central issue, Sanders’s plan would wallop the rich, an analysis released Friday by the Tax Policy Center shows.

The top 0.1 percent would see their tax bills go up by more than $3 million, the report said, which would cut their after-tax incomes by almost half.

But Sanders, going where few politicians dare, would also raise taxes on middle- and low-income families, with those in the dead center of the income spectrum facing a $4,700 tax increase. That would reduce their after-tax incomes by 8.5 percent, the report said.

The report underscores the stark choice facing Democratic primary voters when it comes to tax policy.

Rival Hillary Clinton has proposed a number of tax increases as well, but she has targeted the wealthy and on businesses, and plans a tax cut for those further down the income ladder.

“There is a very, very clear choice,” said Len Burman, head of the non-partisan Tax Policy Center. “They really couldn’t be more different.”............................

Clinton urges candidates to present 'credible' economic plan in Detroit MI

I would post this in LBN -because it is as it talks about what is happening on the trail but I posted another article to day in lbn and it just got pooped on by Sanders fans. Shameful that we can not even post a news article out there without it getting swarmed by them. No discussion--just crapped on.

Clinton urges candidates to present 'credible' economic plan



Associated Press By KEN THOMAS
52 minutes ago


DETROIT (AP) — Hillary Clinton said Friday the nation needs a "new bargain" for the economy and called upon all the presidential candidates to offer a "credible strategy" for raising wages as her primary race against rival Bernie Sanders shifts to a series of Rust Belt contests.


Clinton's address at Detroit Manufacturing Systems, a manufacturer of instrument panels for cars, offered her the opportunity to contrast herself with both Sanders and business mogul Donald Trump, the leading Republican candidate.

"Anyone running for president owes it to you to come up with real ideas, not an ideology, not an old set of talking points but a credible strategy designed for the world we live in now," Clinton said in remarks pointed at both rivals.

Sanders, who is trying to stage an upset in next week's Michigan primary, has accused Clinton of supporting trade deals that have had "disastrous" consequences for workers. And he has sought to diminish Clinton's standing by implying she waffled when she ........

In the address, Clinton called for a so-called "clawback" of tax benefits for companies that ship jobs overseas, rescinding tax relief and other incentives intended to encourage domestic investment. Revenue raised by this "clawback" would then be used to support investment in the United States.

AUSTIN — Among leaders at black universities, Hillary Clinton is poised to become far more popular than the man she aims to succeed — the first black president.

Clinton’s policies toward historically black colleges and universities, or HBCUs, may be one of the biggest differences between her and President Barack Obama. Leaders of some of those schools complain that Obama has been too hands-off with black universities and has hurt them with financial aid policies and a focus on community colleges.

..................................

That outreach has included several visits to HBCUs. Clinton appeared twice for campaign events at Texas Southern University in Houston, and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, stumped for her at Paul Quinn College in Dallas.
...............

“There has been a lack of open communications on both sides — from the Obama administration and from the HBCU community,” said Gasman, who directs the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions at the University of Pennsylvania. “The challenges that HBCUs face were in existence prior to Obama becoming president.”....................

Hillary Clinton Hits Populist Notes in Pitch to Michigan

Source: time




Philip Elliott / Detroit, MI @Philip_Elliott Sam Frizell @Sam_Frizell

4:56 PM ET


In a made-for-Michigan pitch, Hillary Clinton on Friday stood on a factory floor in Detroit and blasted corporate greed and anti-union politics as she cast herself as the best ally of workers.

Scolding corporations for hiding their profits overseas and promising to bring high-paying jobs back to American shores, Clinton delivered a speech like a modern Norma Rae armed with reams of policy papers. She tried to tap into a deep populism that has fueled the rise of Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, as well as GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

“If you’re not going to invest in us, why should taxpayers invest in you?” she told a crowd at Detroit Manufacturing Systems, an auto parts supplier that makes plastic assemblies for doors and dashboards. “If you desert America, you’ll pay a price.”



Clinton also introduced a proposal that would punish companies that take advantage of tax incentives and then move their company overseas. The plan would rescind tax relief offers that were designed to encourage investment in the United States, a concept that an aide said emerged out of discussions with her aides in recent years. ......................................
