Bernie Foils Attempted "Hatchet Job" By CBS Face The Nation Host John Dickerson With Great Skill

CBS News Face The Nation host John Dickerson, a CHOREOGRAPHER for The Establishment and Hillary Clinton, was foiled in his bid today to try and hang Bernie Sanders out to dry. ( EVERY time Bernie is on FTN, he knows what is coming...)

Instead Bernie turned the tables with rapier like political agility and won the day.

Daily News Bullshit! Contesting Election Crap... (Basically, when are you going to call it and jump in line behind Hillary?)

Sorry Establishment Cronies... (Dickerson, Maddow, Matthews... and the list goes on... ) It Ain't Over Yet!

A Political Revolutuion In The Making? The Pieces May Well Be Falling Into Place!

It's happening... and Clinton may well be unable to stop it... Could... "We The People" Finally Achieve REAL CHANGE?

Media coverage of Sanders is starting to shift from dismissive to grudging respect...

There is also starting to be a change in how the Sanders campaign is getting covered in the corporate media. In Pennsylvania, the state’s main newspaper, the Philadelphia Inquirer, has been consistently dismissive of the Sanders campaign, but the morning after the Temple rally, the paper’s front page featured a large photo showing a crush of young supports struggling to shake Sanders’ hand over a headline that read “Sanders stirs a frenzy in visit to Temple.”

As the Sanders campaign continues to surge (he’s now won seven of the last eight primary contests, all by landslides or even by tsunami margins), and as polls in states like Pennsylvania and New York where he was once down by 30-40 points, narrow to low single digits weeks before the next round of primaries, Clinton’s team, increasingly desperate to turn things around, is reportedly shifting to a campaign strategy of “disqualify him, defeat him, and unify the party later.”

Even cops’ kids are backing Bernie

As we were heading back to our car with from the rally, my wife and I found ourselves walking behind the head of Temple University’s police department, which had largely handled the security and traffic issues caused by the huge all-day line of people coming to attend the rally. A tall crew-cut wearing guy who looked 100% cop, when we complemented him on how his officers had handled the crowd management issue, he told us his own 21-year-old son was a “Bernie supporter.” SNIP


But what if, as seems increasingly likely, Trump goes to the Republican convention with the largest number of delegates but not an absolute majority, and then at a brokered convention, party leaders install an alternative candidate — either Ted Cruz or perhaps a more “acceptable” candidate? Trump has already warned that he might in that case run as an independent or third party candidate — something he clearly has the support and the money to do.

At that point we’d have a three-way race between Clinton, a Republican and Trump. What would Sanders do then? His backers, who have already provided his campaign with over $140 million in small donations and seem to be a bottomless well of support, will be calling for him to run too. Perhaps he would. If it came to that, perhaps the Green Party should consider the bold idea of making him its standard bearer — a move that would assure his already high-flying campaign a place on the ballot in virtually every state, and that would simultaneously suddenly catapult the Green Party from an election footnote capable of winning a percent or two of votes to a major-league party vying for the top prize (and maybe some seats in Congress into the bargain).

Maybe that’s a fantasy, but it’s a beautiful one, entailing as it would the decimation of the two massively corrupt parties that have conspired to stymie political change in the US for generations. SNIP

Climate Change.. New York! Is Hillary's Integrity With Respect To Climate Change A Concern?

If you read this article one can certainly be given pause to consider whether Hillary does in fact have...
"integrity" on Climate Change.

As Secretary of State, Hillary SOLD FRACKING to the WORLD... LITERALLY!

One icy morning in February 2012, Hillary Clinton's plane touched down in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia, which was just digging out from a fierce blizzard. Wrapped in a thick coat, the secretary of state descended the stairs to the snow-covered tarmac, where she and her aides piled into a motorcade bound for the presidential palace...

Watch Bernie's Facial Expression As Hillary Cobbles Together A Response...


Yet Hillary Portrays Herself As A Climate Change Advocate in the interview with Chuck Todd today!

Susan Sarandon "I really want to be on the Right Side of History... This is a shot that we are not going to have again in my lifetime...."

CORPORATIST NATION POINT: Let's hope that America collectively recognizes this "revolution. We must remain optimistic that OUR voice will be acknowledged... by those who control the strings of power who will peacefully relinquish their grasp...

NICE JOB Chuck! On Meet The Press "The Queen Of Obfuscation Speaks... But Says NOTHING...

FINALLY.. Legit JOURNALISM FOR ONCE! . Chuck Todd (NOT TOAD) in this case actually put the "Inevitable One" back on her heels!

He asked her about her meltdown.
.. No Answer just circuitous babble...

He asked her about TRANSCRIPTS... More diversionary babble...

He asked her about FBI inquiry... This one really stunned her...
You could sense with her the blood rushing either to her head or her feet!

So if people want a President who cannot and will not answer a question when put to her directly...

You have to wonder what it is they are looking for in a leader....

I am certain that the video will be available later today...

"If She Wins We Lose!" Clinton Frustration Grows As Primary race drags On!

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Hillary Clinton snapped at a Greenpeace protester. She linked Bernie Sanders and tea party Republicans. And she bristled with anger when nearly two dozen Sanders supporters marched out of an event near her home outside New York City, shouting "if she wins, we lose."

"They don't want to listen to anyone else," she shot back. "We actually have to do something. Not just complain about what is happening."

After a year of campaigning, months of debates and 35 primary elections, Sanders is finally getting under Clinton's skin in the Democratic presidential race.

Clinton has spent weeks largely ignoring Sanders and trying to focus on Republican front-runner Donald Trump. Now, after several primary losses and with a tough fight in New York on the horizon, Clinton is showing flashes of frustration with the Vermont senator — irritation that could undermine her efforts to unite the party around her candidacy.

According to Democrats close to Hillary and former President Bill Clinton, both are frustrated by Sanders' ability to cast himself as above politics-as-usual even while firing off what they consider to be misleading attacks. The Clintons are even more annoyed that Sanders' approach seems to be rallying — and keeping — young voters by his side. SNIP

PROPAGANDA ALERT: LYING WITH NUMBERS!!! According to an Associated Press analysis, Sanders must win 67 percent of the remaining delegates and uncommitted superdelegates — party leaders and officials who can support any candidate — through June to be able to clinch the Democratic nomination. So far he's only winning 37 percent. SNIP PRESS CONFLATING SUPER DELEGATES WITH PLEDGED DELEGATES IN ORDER TO GET TO THAT BOGUS 67% number!

While Hillary Clinton's team contends her lock on the nomination as "nearly insurmountable," the campaign frequently grumbles that Sanders hasn't faced the same level of scrutiny as the former secretary of state, New York senator and first lady. Her aides complain about Sanders' rhetoric, claiming he's broken his pledge to avoid character attacks by going after her paid speeches and ties to Wall Street, and they point to scenes of Sanders supporters booing Clinton's name at his rallies. SNIP BS ALERT... SANDERS never PLEDGED TO SAVE HILLARY FROM HERSELF... BY ABSTAINING FROM ALLOWING THE TRUTH TO BE KNOWN ABOUT HILLARY!

Actress Rosario Dawson's 15-minute speech at a New York City rally on Thursday, (See It Below) in which she rallied the crowd by crying "shame on you, Hillary" and noted that Clinton could soon face an FBI interview over the email controversy while at the State Department, underscored the growing tensions between the campaigns. SNIP

Near the conclusion of Ms Dawson's speech she spoke about the danger to Net Neutrality that Clinton presents as in "THEY" do not like us to be able to communicate and organize....


On Saturday, the bickering was about a possible debate before the New York primary April 19. Clinton's campaign accused Sanders' of playing "political games" by rejecting three specific dates; the Sanders team was hopeful of an agreement soon. The dates were ridiculous e.g., NCAA Final Four Game With Syracuse was one date proposed by Clinton!


Below, There Is TRUTH!

Sanders Campaign Fires Back After Cinton Says That Bernie Is Lying!

"Bernie Sanders’ campaign is firing back at Hillary Clinton after she said she was “so sick” of them lying about her contributions from the fossil fuel industry.

Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ campaign manager, on Friday called Clinton’s statement “disappointing” and untrue, pointing to research from Greenpeace that shows she’s not just receiving money from “individuals” who happen to work in the oil, coal and gas industry, but from 57 industry lobbyists, including 11 who have bundled more than $1 million to help put her in the White House.
Counting money given to super PACs backing Clinton, the fossil fuel industry has donated more than $4.5 million in support of Clinton’s bid, he said in a statement.
“If the Clinton campaign wants to argue that industry lobbyists giving thousands of dollars to her campaign won’t affect her decisions if she’s elected, that’s fine,” he said. “But to call us liars for pointing out basic facts about the secretary’s fundraising is deeply cynical and very disappointing.”"


Hillary is having a terrible wee

Hillary's position on special interest money, "Obama took it too" and "everybody has".....may be true, but it's just not resonating this election cycle, with the main message. Enough, is enough, is ENOUGH! GO BERNIE!

The Countless Failings of The Democratic National Committee (Presidential primary)

There is little to dispute in this article if anything... Read the article and comment. There is plenty to be accounted for as to the management and process of this Presidential Primary Election Contest dating back to before it began...

"The Democratic National Committee rigged the Democratic primaries to ensure Hillary Clinton would win the presidential nomination. Evidence suggesting this claim is overwhelming and, as the primaries progress, the DNC’s collusion with the Clinton campaign has become more apparent.

Hillary Clinton has known for years she would be running for president in 2016. Fundraisers were held on her behalf as early as 2014, before she announced her campaign, as it was well known throughout the Democratic establishment that she would run for president. Unlike Jeb Bush, also an establishment-backed Republican candidate with very wealthy donors, no Democrats in office dared to run against Ms. Clinton. The DNC did not suspect an Independent and three virtually unknown former politicians would contend for the nomination. Aside from clearing out her competition in the primaries, the co-chair to Ms. Clinton’s failed 2008 campaignDebbie Wasserman Schultz, who is currently the DNC Chair—scheduled only six debates compared to the eight scheduled for Republican candidates, and enacted a new rule effectively banning Democratic presidential candidates from participating in any unsanctioned debates." SNIP...

“Party leaders (again, that’s code for Hillary supporters) have seemingly hosted fewer voter registration drives. Doing so, would, in essence, be drives for Bernie Sanders. In some cases, party leaders are just skipping them altogether in many states and at college campuses,” wrote Shaun King (Poster on DU) for The New York Daily News. “Hillary must know that low voter turnout actually favors her campaign to get the nomination. She and the political machine are not going to invest the time or money to beat the drums for voter registration because they know full well those are primarily votes she won’t receive.” SNIP...

"The DNC has bent their own rules and regulations to assist Ms. Clinton. In December 2015, Vice News broke a story that the DNC was allowing Ms. Clinton’s campaign to share offices with the Carson City Democratic Party in Nevada—a key early primary state. In the summer of 2015, a top DNC official, Henry R. Munoz III broke DNC rules by organizing a fundraiser for Ms. Clinton in Texas. When news broke of the infraction, Ms. Wasserman Schultz ignored it." SNIP...

When one looks at this picture it is difficult to deny that this is a sad performance by party leadership... We can only hope for better moving forward...
