Well, speaking of financial disclosures...

Will Hillary release the Clinton Foundation's form 990 for 2015?

April 2, 2016

Looks like some of Hillary's biggest donors are in trouble...

Looks like Citibank is being investigated in the unaoil investigations...

Here is the link saying Citibank is a top donor:

This could get interesting and is worthy of keeping an eye out for further developments.

What I asked

Wasn't a straw man argument. It was a valid question.

Can we finally dispel the Bernie myth...

That only young white individuals vote for Sanders? He won 79.2% of the vote in Alaska and 71.8% in Washington. First, the fact that he won by such a large margin means that more than just college aged white millennials voted for him. Also, it is so utterly racist to assume that all of those voters are white. To say that these states are just white states insults those non-white voters that support Sanders.

Washington has a population of 22.7% minorities, are you saying that nearly a quarter of the population is insignificant to Washington politics?

See, e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_(state)#Race_and_ethnicity

The same goes for Alaska, which has an even higher population of minorities at 33.3%. Is a third of Alaska's population insignificant because Alaska is a white state?

See, e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska#Race_and_ancestry

So, to those of you that say that Washington and Alaska are white states, are you implying that nearly a quarter and a third of those states, respectively, is insignificant? Because that is pretty offensive.

So, how do you think this sweeping victory...

... will be downplayed and dismissed by the Hillary camp and the media?!

Nope, nothing to see here folks...

After primary voters in Illinois were turned away because of a lack of ballots and, thus, were not able to cast a vote, the County attorney for one of those counties sought an injunction from a judge to allow those disenfranchised voters to have their vote counted.

The next day, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter who has introduced her at campaign rallies, filed an appeal in Illinois 4th District Appellate Court to prevent late voting. On March 23, the appellate court issued a stay on Judge Vahle’s injunction, meaning those voters won’t get a chance to cast ballots in this primary. Hillary Clinton won Illinois by roughly 35,000 votes, or a slim 1.8 percent margin, effectively splitting delegates with Sanders.

In a phone interview, Adams County State’s Attorney Jon Barnard said that had there been enough ballots available in those counties, the end result may have been a Sanders win, rather than a Clinton victory.

“I think it’s certainly possible,” Barnard told US Uncut. “The number of voters that were turned away was in the thousands. Sangamon and Madison [Counties] are huge for Democrats.”


Please note, I am not blaming HRC or her camp for this at all, though the Illinois state Democratic party definitely had a say in this. Any form of disenfranchisement is something that should be fought against for the good of our nation.

Serious question.

With reports from AZ & upcoming closed primary states of party affiliation being flipped, who are the ones with access to do that? Since it is happening in multiple states, it can't just be a glitch.

So, who has the capability to do so?

Ex Speaker Dennis Hastert threatens victim...

Ex GOP Speaker of the House threatens to cross examine his victim in court if he testifies. When a defendant accused of rape states that they will cross examine the victim, they are saying that they will put on record all of the victims sexual proclivities and that, when such happens, the defense will not only prove the victim wanted it, they will have embarrassed the victim further in public. This POS ran as a family values candidate and now is threatening his victim. I hope he rots in jail for the rest of his life.

Disenfranchisement isn't acceptable...

The fact that there were first hand accounts of election fraud and numerous other examples of eligible voters being disenfranchised should be worrisome to all Democrats. This isn't a Sanders v. Clinton issue, this is an issue all of us should be, regardless of who we support, concerned about. AZ is a GOP stronghold where the Republicans ultimately run the election process. Given the evidence, there is a clear case of election fraud or at least 'negligence' on part of those administrators responsible for the vote. Instead wasting our time and energy by accusing Sanders supporters of being sore losers or accusing Clinton of some sort of conspiracy, we should be focusing on ensuring that the AZ Republican party cannot pull this BS in the GE. This was just their test run..

This is why we have to unite behind either Sanders or Clinton

After it is decided who will be the democrat candidate, we have to unite and ensure that Trump will not win. Otherwise, we will have 4 or 8 years of his supporters intimidating those that oppose him with threats like these:

. An 84-year-old woman who fled Austria as a child with her family to escape the Nazis was mailed a KKK symbol after openly criticizing GOP front-runner Donald Trump, according to the Boston Globe.

Louise Mayerson told the paper she received the anonymous envelope in the mail after writing a letter that was published in the Globe earlier this month.

“I have found some alarming rhetoric coming from Donald Trump that is apparently finding approval from large numbers of my fellow Americans,” she wrote. “With Trump’s rather ambiguous response concerning his disavowal of the support of former Klansman David Duke, I have reached my breaking point”

Just days later, she received the envelope containing a square white cross and red background, the symbol of America’s oldest and most violent hate group..
