I'm here already. People are looking lining up and abc channel is here.

How Super Delegates Work

This is from 2008 and is mostly about Clinton vs. Obama but the system is the same. (Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything more up-to-date that wasn't someone's poorly-written blog.) Btw, THIS is how the DNC can, literally, steal this election.

WARNING: Your computer monitor may be subject to breakage if you open this thread

There's a reason my FB page has a photo of me when I was 3 years old -- it was the last good photo taken of me. LOL! Alright, so this just got posted on FB and don't say I didn't warn you:


Video of the local new coverage from Wednesday night.

Someone posted this on our Bernie FB page. (Sorry about the commercial at the beginning -- warning, the commercial is LOUD.) You can see the crowd pretty good as well.


CHECK IN HERE to Report on your Bernie Sanders Event

Post pictures if you can.

We counted 170!

I have pictures but I'm too damned tired to post them right now. PLUS we got local CBS and NBC news crews out. Unfortunately, I don't have TV so I won't see them.

How did everyone else do?

ETA: Here's a link to our FB page with one picture earlier in the evening when people were still arriving:


This one is a little later with more people:


If you have questions for the Bernie campaign,

they have recently added a whole batch of volunteers to man the help desk. You can get help via e-mail at:


They're supposed to get back to you within a reasonable amount of time and they've been pretty helpful to us so far.

Just an FYI

REALLY stupid question here.

Almost afraid to ask it but. . . my understanding is that Bernie is still an Independent but he's running for the Democratic Party nomination with the party's blessing. Is that right? There seems to be some disagreement as to whether Bernie is an I or a D. Anyone?

ETA: Do we list him as Bernie Sanders (I-VT) or Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)?

Can someone answer a Bernie question that was emailed to me?

I couldn't find anything on the website and I thought someone here might know. This is the question:

I wished to ask him his opinion on the Israel-Palestine conflict, and his thoughts on Benjamin Netanyahu. I also wanted to know whether or not he would place sanctions on Israel for their actions if he we're to become president.

Anyone know how to answer this?


Sanders Wins South Carolina Labor Backing

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa – Speaking at a union hall here, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders on Saturday welcomed news that the South Carolina AFL-CIO executive board passed a resolution supporting his candidacy for the Democratic Party presidential nomination and recommending his endorsement by the state and national labor organization.

“We call on the AFL-CIO, union members and working people everywhere to unite behind Bernie Sanders and elect the president America’s workers desperately need,” the resolution said. The resolution “strongly urges” the national AFL-CIO to endorse Sanders.


Bernie Sanders becomes the first candidate to speak out on Sandra Bland: “We need real police reform

Source: Salon

Bernie Sanders released a forceful statement blasting the conduct of Sandra Bland’s arresting officer as “police abuse” and calling for “real police reform.” So far, Sanders is the only presidential candidate to speak publicly about the death of Bland while in police custody.

The arrest and subsequent death of the 28-year-old African American woman in a small Texas town set-off a national outcry last week after local officials ruled her death in a jell cell a suicide. Witness cell phone footage later released revealed Bland yelling during the arrest that the officer had slammed her head on the ground. Authorities said she hung herself with a plastic bag in a jail cell three days later on July 13.

Following Sanders’ tense confrontation with #BlackLivesMatters activists at the progressive Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix on Saturday, the independent Vermont senator added a passage to his stump speech in Houston on Sunday referencing Bland’s death, a reference the Texas Tribune said drew the longest and loudest applause from the crowd. “It is unacceptable that police officers beat up people or kill people,” Sanders told the audience in Houston. “If they do that, they have got to be held accountable.”

After dashcam video of Bland’s arrest was released last night showing the officer, who had pulled Bland over for what he described as failing to signal a turn, open Bland’s driver side door and threaten to “light her up” with his taser if she didn’t stop smoking a cigarette and exit the vehicle, Sanders was quick to release a statement Tuesday condemning the arrest:
