Robert Scheer: Why I Will Never Support Hillary Clinton for President

With regard to posting pro-Hillary and anti-Bernie stories from the Daily Beast

Just stop it. The Daily Beast is a mouthpiece for the Clinton campaign. Chelsea Clinton is on the Board of Directors of IAC, which owns the Daily Beast. She collects $300,000 plus stock options for a few days of work a year.

U.S. News: Clinton's Speech Morass is Her Own Fault

http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/peter-roff/articles/2016-02-26/clintons-wall-street-speech-transcript-mess-is-her-own-fault

By not releasing transcripts of her speeches to Wall Street, Hillary Clinton reinforces the notion that she has something to hide.

Live stream of Sanders meeting with residents of Flint, MI

Whether you support Bernie or Hillary, I would think this subject might be of interest. Most of the time based on what I've seen so far is citizens who are impacted by the Flint water crisis speaking.

Live Bernie event in Flint, MI

Bernie may have already spoken. People in audience are now speaking of their issues and Bernie is responding. Here's a link to the live feed.

Hillary's Pay-to-Pay Speaking Fees Disqualify Her as a Presidential Candidate

I started to write a post myself on the fact that Hillary Clinton is an attorney who knows that judges are required to recuse themselves from hearing cases in which they have a financial interest. Her "show me where a financial contribution ever changed my vote" is a ridiculous thing for an attorney to say. But after writing a few sentences, I thought that I should do a search and see if anybody had written on this topic in a more thorough way than I could. Lo and behold, I found this article on this very topic that was posted yesterday at commondreams.org.

http://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/02/22/hillary-clintons-pay-play-speaking-fees-disqualify-her-presidential-candidate

This article includes a list of paid speeches given by Hillary and Bill Clinton to financial institutions from 2001-2014 for total fees of at least $7.7 million. And the financial industry is just the tip of the iceberg. From February, 2001 through May, 2015 the total speech income of Bill and Hillary Clinton totals over $153 million for 729 speeches, just over $210,000 per speech. The "that's what they offered" response by Hillary over getting $225,000 per speech from Goldman Sachs was a half truth at best. That was Hillary's going rate to give a speech in 2013, as you can see on the list of speeches given by Hillary in that year. So "that's what they offered" just happened to be just what she charged.

Whether or not Hillary releases the transcripts should be irrelevant. I agree with the author of this article that she should be disqualified as a Presidential candidate.

A must read column for Bernie supporters

Full of snark that summarizes my feelings pretty well. Written by one of those millenials who doesn't seem to realize whose turn it is.
