Wisconsin, if you voted Provisional, Please get your ID and/or proof of Residency to the Municipal

Clerk by Friday, we need only about 1% in couple of CD's to gain more Delegates.

Due to WI's weird delegate allotting system, we only gained 10 delegates there, a few CD's are only a few votes short of flipping some CD's from 3-3 to 4-2 delegates, So please go and take your ID's to the Municipal Clerk if you voted provisionally

Hillary Clinton Insults The Intelligence of Bernie Sanders Supporters

Published on Apr 4, 2016

Hillary Clinton appeared on "Meet The Press" with Chuck Todd responding to allegations she takes money from the Fossil Fuel Industry. Hillary Clinton denies taking money from Oil, Coal and Gas Companies. Clinton went on to say "I feel sorry sometimes for the young people who believe this, they don't do their own research. I'm glad we can now point to reliable, independent analysis to say: No. It is just not true."

Tim Black presents the facts concerning the Greenpeace as well as Bernie Sanders accusations of Hillary Clinton's Fossil Fuel Industry connections and lets you decide which you believe.

This Is How Hillary Clinton Gets the Coverage She Wants

Hillary Clinton’s supporters often argue that mainstream political reporters are incapable of covering her positively—or even fairly. While it may be true that the political press doesn’t always write exactly what Clinton would like, emails recently obtained by Gawker offer a case study in how her prodigious and sophisticated press operation manipulates reporters into amplifying her desired message—in this case, down to the very word that The Atlantic’s Marc Ambinder used to describe an important policy speech.

NYC Open Primary City Hall "town hall" on Thursday (reddit repost)

I had just received a phone call from the petition organizers of Open Primaries regarding the fight for an open primary election in New York. http://www.openprimaries.org/states_new_york

The caller told me that there was going to be some kind of town hall or dialogue in NYC's city hall to discuss an open primary. I unfortunately am out of town so I told her I could not go, but did anyone else hear about this? I wanted to spread word if it were the case.

The town hall is Thursday, April 14 at 12PM (noon o'clock)
at the New York City Hall located at
City Hall Park, New York, NY 10007


The Presidential Primary of 2016 is exposing glaring shortcomings in our election system. Untold numbers of voters were disenfranchised in Arizona. NY's primary will be much worse.

NY’s election rules are so undemocratic that 3.2 million people (1 in 4 registered NY voters), many of whom are Millennials and minority voters, will be forbidden from participating.

It is time for the people to stand up and say enough is enough. We are demanding that the parties open up New York’s undemocratic Presidential Primary election, which prohibits 3.2 million people from casting a vote on Tuesday.


New York! We need to treat the hearing on the closed primary like a Bernie Rally! Pack the place inside and out with 20,000 people to show our support for an open primary! - 4/14 at noon NYC City Hall New York, New York 10007

We need to have this place jam packed with supporters so they cannot ignore the people. Having voter registration end in October of last year is ridiculous.

It is time for the people to stand up and say enough is enough. We are demanding that the parties open up New York’s undemocratic Presidential Primary election, which prohibits 3.2 million people from casting a vote on Tuesday.

Edit: adding more specific info




Thursday, April 14, 2016 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)


New York City Hall - City Hall Park 9th Floor, New York, NY 10007


Phonebankers, add this to your call script! Ask people to show up to the hearing.
