If Jesus had an economic theory...

would he have been a socialist or a capitalist?

Discuss.

This is the moment

Right now. Remember where you where. We are on the cusp of something yoooge.

We saw the same thing in 2008, and it happened. An energized group of supporters came out to Caucus and worked their asses off in support of Barack Obama. They showed up. Even better, they stayed. They persuaded on caucus day and held their own. They saw people switch sides as on the fence supporters who up even to that moment of final decision had not done a whole lot of research. It was just name recognition, knowing the creds, even respecting their candidate, but deep down all they wanted was to win and keep the crazies out of the White House. They would completely throw their support behind the person they felt would win.

These people never visit DU, KOS, JPR. They might read Huffington Post casually, but typically only catch the local news. They have gotten phone calls from Bernie and HC supporters. Someone may have knocked on their door. The ads, they have seen the ads and they are happy it hasn't really been as ugly as it has in the past. They like both candidates, but they just want to win. They know that America may not survive another Bush.

And now here we are. At this moment, this campaign is not the one in panic mode. This campaign has been surging, just like we knew it would. The race in Iowa and New Hampshire is now about showing up, turning out. The HC campaign has a machine for that, but does she have the support? Don't underestimate that. Even if the enthusiasm battle is being won by Bernie, this is still a tough fight.

We have showed up. We have sat in the chairs and listened. Attended the yooge rallies. Put the bumper stickers and yard signs out. But now, now it is that critical time to get out of our seats and into action. At DU, we all know what that means. Money, Time, Activism. We have that in spades, but now our mission is to Get Out that Damn Vote. It's not just GOTV it's GOTDV!!

If we do this. If they come. It will happen and it will be the first wave in a tsunami that wins the White House.

So again, remember this moment. It's the moment we decide whether we win or we lose. Both are possible.

Massive Backlash to the Planned Parenthood Endorsement of HC

http://samuel-warde.com/2016/01/massive-online-backlash-after-planned-parenthood-endorses-hillary-clinton/

Clinton supporters were thrilled; however, they appear to be in the minority if you look at comments on social media. After visiting the Planned Parenthood Action page and reading the comments about the endorsement, I found the people who were weighing in on the endorsement were expressing their disappointment, and the overwhelming majority of these folks were Bernie Sanders supporters.

Several commenters said they’re pulling donations from Planned Parenthood and giving them to Bernie Sanders because universal healthcare (which he is promoting) would remove the need for PP’s services
One commenter on Rock The Slut Vote’s Facebook page wrote:

“Bank phones clogged all night with people cancelling donations. I’m not kidding. This was an absurd mistake on their part. Took me 47 minutes to get my bank to cancel my monthly donation and the tired rep said “yes..pp? You and half the world..”

Many are posting a Breitbart.com article pointing out that the daughter of PP’s president, Lily Adams is Hillary Clinton’s Iowa communications director. (Breitbart is a conservative site but the information about Lily Adams is true.)

I do not celebrate this...I find it sad that they endorsed for the first time in 100 years and are hurting themselves.

Urgent: Getting Bernie on the Ballot in New Mexico self.SandersForPresident
submitted 6 hours ago by CbbcbailNew Mexico
Dear SantaFe4Bernie Supporters,
(This applies to the whole state)
A crucial Santa Fe Democratic Party meeting is only ten days away. We need Bernie supporters to attend this meeting in large numbers to ensure Bernie is on the NM primary ballot and that he has the majority of NM delegates at the National Convention. This is a difficult process to grasp, so please read carefully.
The County Democratic Party Pre-Primary Meeting is Jan. 9, at 1420 Cerrillos Rd., with registration at 8:30 a.m. At this meeting, Ward elections will be held to select delegates for the State Dem. Party Convention on March 12. It is critical that we elect as many Bernie delegates as possible––Bernie needs the support of 20% of these delegates statewide to get on the primary ballot. And on March 12, these delegates will select the delegates who will be eligible to represent NM in the National Democratic Convention in July with the precise allocation of eligible delegates then determined by the primary results.
To prepare for the Jan. 9 meeting, we will have an Emergency Coordinating Meeting, Jan. 2, 2:30-4:30 pm at The Railyard Performance Center, 1611 Paseo De Peralta, (enter yellow warehouse building between El Museo Cultural and LewAllen Gallery from Camino de La Familia) directly across from the Railyard Pavillion. This meeting will help you identify your Ward, and we will discuss strategies to elect as many Bernie supporters as possible.
We need as many Bernie supporters as possible to attend both meetings. We need RSVPs for the Jan. 9 meeting in particular. Please respond to this email with your Ward #, which you can identify at the link below. We need to know how many Bernie supporters will be in each Ward meeting on the 9th so we can develop the best strategy for electing the most Bernie delegates. If you would like to be a delegate, please tell us this as well. Then forward this email to others.
How to identify your Ward # and the time of your Jan. 9th Ward meeting: The link below takes you to a state website where you can identify what precinct you are in. Then you can use the list below to identify your Ward Number (Wards are comprised of 2-7 precincts).

John McCain: Bernie Sanders, Not Hillary Clinton, Has ‘Record of Advocacy’ for Vets

http://observer.com/2015/10/john-mccain-bernie-sanders-not-hillary-clinton-has-record-of-advocacy-for-vets/

Arizona Sen. John McCain—the 2008 Republican presidential nominee—told reporters today that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the second place candidate in the Democratic primary, has a “record of advocacy for our veterans” while front-runner Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and senator from New York, does not.

On a conference call with reporters, Mr. McCain—chairman of the Senate Armed Forces Committee—and Florida Congressman Jeff Miller, chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, lambasted Ms. Clinton for her claim last week that the 2014 Department of Veterans Affairs scandal was not “widespread.” The two Republicans recalled numerous cost overruns and countless members of the armed forces who did not receive vital medical care, and the Arizona senator touted his joint bill with Mr. Sanders to increase transparency at the VA and to allow vets to obtain treatment at private facilities.

Kroll, The Clintons, DWS and the DNC, Independent? I Don't Think So.

Pulled from Reddit. Amazing Investigation by rhetstudent there.
https://www.reddit.com/r/SandersForPresident/comments/3y3r8o/details_on_how_the_dnc_and_kroll_the_group_hired/


After finding out that Kroll was the company hired to do the investigation on the data breach, I've been doing a lot of research on exactly how the DNC and Kroll are related. I knew they were connected, but it’s honestly insane how biased they’re going to be in this investigation. Please share this far and wide, and spread the news on just how unfair this investigation is.
So let’s get started. First of all, I found that Kroll is owned by Providence Equity Partners Inc. When they bought Altegrity, Inc., they “expanded the business partly by adding Kroll Inc.”:
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...ting-contracts
Altegrity has approximately 18k clients lobbying in the Senate and House combined:
http://www.opensecrets.org/lobby/cli...4404&year=2015
Their president and CEO, Thomas Hartley, also worked for Bain and Company:
http://www.bloomberg.com/research/st...e=Kroll,%20Inc.
Going back as far as 2000, Bain and Company has contributed to HRC and DWS's campaigns:
http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/reci...t=A&cycle=2000
http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/reci...t=A&cycle=2008
http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/reci...t=A&cycle=2014
In 2012, when Garth Williams, CFO of Kroll, was working as VP and Assistant Controller, International for American Tower Corporation, his company gave $61,600 to the DNC. They also gave to the Democratic Executive Committee of Florida, where DWS serves.
Williams’s background:
http://www.bloomberg.com/research/st...ociates,%20Inc.
ATC campaign contributions:
http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/summ...071&cycle=2012
Okay, so what about the bigger company, Providence Equity Partners Inc.? Richard D. Parsons, chairman of Citigroup, HRC’s biggest campaign contributor, is also a Senior Advisor for this company.
Citigroup’s contributions to HRC’s campaign:
https://www.opensecrets.org/politici...9&cycle=Career
Biography for Parsons:
https://www.whitehouse.gov/administr...embers/parsons
In 2013, Parsons gave $15,000 to the DNC:
http://www.opensecrets.org/usearch/?...cof=FORID%3A11
And in June of this year, he made the maximum individual contribution of $2,700 to HRC’s campaign:
http://www.opensecrets.org/usearch/?...cof=FORID%3A11
I’m sure there is a lot more to it than this, but it’s Christmas Eve, and this is honestly all the time I have to investigate the various connections between Kroll and the establishment today. Basic takeaway? Providence/Kroll/Atlegrity is absurdly connected to the DNC.
