My Turn: Hillary Clinton should tell the people what she said in her private speeches


By RALPH NADER

For the Monitor


(Published in print: Thursday, February 4, 2016)

Last month as Hillary Clinton was leaving a town meeting in Manchester, Lee Fang of the Intercept asked her if she would release the transcripts of her paid, and very private speeches to Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street powerhouse historically deep in Washington, D.C., influence-peddling. Mrs. Clinton just laughed.

It is probably a good bet that her laugh was masking a deep worry, shared by her husband, that disclosing what she confidentially told big-business conferences and conventions around the country, which paid her about $5,000 a minute, would emerge as a dominant issue in the mainstream media.

Reporters have taken notice of her $250,000-and-up speeches before trade associations from which they have been excluded. But journalists have not demanded that she tell the voters what she told the executives from Morgan Stanley, Fidelity Investments, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores, Golden Tree Asset Management, the National Automotive Dealers Association, Deutsche Bank, the National Association of Realtors, eBay, Cisco, among other plutocracy paymasters seeking to expand their political influence.

Voters under 30 broke to Sanders by 70%. Democratic Socialism is the future of the party


Even if Hillary ends up winning in 8 years the bulk of the country is going to be much further left than it is now. Bernie laid down the groundwork for the revolution to begin. With the changing demographics, if this election were in 4 years instead of today Sanders would be the front runner.

If someone is up by less than a half point, no once should be declared the winner yet


If this were a regular national election determining the winner on such a close race might take days. If a News channel is declaring someone the winner now that is unethical and meant to give them a boost. Less than or equal to .5% usually automatically triggers a recount.

Sanders may be struggeling in the south now but wait until they get to know him

Lets be clear, his record on civil rights is unmatched and once people start paying attention down there they will see who the clear choice is!

Clinton Ominously Tells Iowan Supporters To Mark Front Doors With Campaign Logo Before Sundown

DES MOINES, IA—Declaring that all voting-age citizens who took the measures would be spared, Hillary Clinton ominously instructed her supporters throughout Iowa to mark their front doors with her campaign logo before sundown, sources confirmed Sunday. “All those residing in Iowa take heed: Your home shall bear the mark of my campaign this eve, or may God help you,” said the Democratic candidate after dispatching a phalanx of campaign staffers to all four corners of the state to spread the message of her directive. “Be within your dwellings with the doors closed and locked before nightfall, and do not cross the threshold before the sun rises again in the sky. The emblem of the red-and-blue H will protect my true voters.” At press time, Clinton issued a statement ordering all Iowan supporters who remain on Monday morning to bring forth their progeny between 18 and 34 years of age to the polls.

If another popular moderate Dem were in this like last time, Bernie would have won easily


However, I guess it could be said that if another popular progressive were in, then Hillary would have won easily. The dynamic this year is quite a bit different from years passed with just two popular candidates with one being a conservative Democrat and the other a Progressive Dem.

So Sanders was expected to do really well in the larger college towns, Clinton in rural areas


Aren't the bigger city precincts the last to come in usually?

Watching this always puts tears in my eyes.

It's amazing how important some of these idiots think they are when their message has zero traction other than with a handful of nut-burgers. I am wondering why he wasn't up there if he is such a tough guy?
