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!
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 states main newspaper, the Philadelphia Inquirer, has been consistently dismissive of the Sanders campaign, but the morning after the Temple rally, the papers 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 (hes 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, Clintons 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 Universitys 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
At that point wed 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 thats a fantasy, but its 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
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!
Watch Bernie's Facial Expression As Hillary Cobbles Together A Response...
We Need A President With INTEGRITY! BERNIE SANDERS IS THAT PRESIDENT!
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...
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...
"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
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....
THE INTERNET IS OUR LAST REMAINING TOOL THAT FACILITATES ORGANIZATION BY THE PEOPLE AGAINST THE CORPORATIST THREATS TO OUR COLLECTIVE WELL BEING THAT ARE POSED BY THE "ESTABLISHMENT."
Below, There Is TRUTH!
Counting money given to super PACs backing Clinton, the fossil fuel industry has donated more than $4.5 million in support of Clintons bid, he said in a statement.
If the Clinton campaign wants to argue that industry lobbyists giving thousands of dollars to her campaign wont affect her decisions if shes elected, thats fine, he said. But to call us liars for pointing out basic facts about the secretarys fundraising is deeply cynical and very disappointing."
Hillary is having a terrible week.
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!
Oh Rachel finally asked what can ONLY be characterized as a "Clear The Air" softball about the Clinton Foundation Operation...
I guess a $ MILLION Bucks a year can do wonderful things for your journalistic ethical comportment... eh Rach?
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...
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. Clintons failed 2008 campaignDebbie Wasserman Schultz, who is currently the DNC Chairscheduled 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, thats 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 wont receive. 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...
