Bernie Sanders is NO DEMOCRAT!!!!! (Hillary Clinton Group)

Bernie Sanders, Eyeing Convention, Willing to Harm Hillary Clinton in the Homestretch

Defiant and determined to transform the Democratic Party, Senator Bernie Sanders is opening a two-month phase of his presidential campaign aimed at inflicting a heavy blow on Hillary Clinton in California and amassing enough leverage to advance his agenda at the convention in July — or even wrest the nomination from her.

Advisers to Mr. Sanders said on Wednesday that he was newly resolved to remain in the race, seeing an aggressive campaign as his only chance to pressure Democrats into making fundamental changes to how presidential primaries and debates are held in the future. They said he also held out hope of capitalizing on any late stumbles by Mrs. Clinton or any damage to her candidacy, whether by scandal or by the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump.

After sounding subdued if not downbeat about the race for weeks, Mr. Sanders resumed a combative posture against Mrs. Clinton, demanding on Wednesday that she debate him before the June 7 primary in California and highlighting anew what he asserted were her weaknesses against Mr. Trump.

While Mr. Sanders says he does not want Mr. Trump to win in November, his advisers and allies say he is willing to do some harm to Mrs. Clinton in the shorter term if it means he can capture a majority of the 475 pledged delegates at stake in California and arrive at the Philadelphia convention with maximum political power.

UNFUCKING BELIEVABLE!


This piece of crap comes into to the party that he was never part of and wants to destroy it and in the process will gamble with allowing a monster like Trump to take control of this country.

Bernie Sanders is not a liberal and most certainly not a Democrat!

Why isn't Trey Gowdy being prosecuted for fraud

Trey Gowdy Admits Faking Clinton Emails To Make Her Look Guilty

Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) admitted he faked evidence to portray former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as guilty of breaking the law, according to Occupy Democrats. Democratic leaders and the American public are calling on the Benghazi Committee to give back taxpayer money funding it, and to end the committee’s partisan charades.

Rep. Gowdy admitted his actions, but only did so after the CIA outed his egregious lapse in judgement and procedure to both sides of the House, and only after Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Mar.) called Rep. Gowdy out in a letter.

This revelation was the last partisan straw that broke the supposedly non-partisan Benghazi Select Committee’s back.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and other Democratic leaders sent a letter to Republican National Committee Chairman, Reince Priebus to demand that they and the GOP give back the $4.7 million in taxpayer money the Benghazi Select Committee has spent, according to Roll Call.

Democratic leaders demand the GOP disband the Benghazi Committee and stop using it as a “Clinton opposition machine,” to raise money for GOP presidential candidates – donations resulting from lies.

Donald Trump and Conspiracy Theories

Donald Trump and Conspiracy Theories: What a Poll in 2011 Signaled

This is below the middle of the article... It explains a lot, not just Donalds bunch.
The political scientists Joseph Uscinski and Joseph Parent, who wrote the book “American Conspiracy Theories,” say that those on the left and the right believe in conspiracies roughly equally. But education can matter: “Forty-two percent of those without a high school diploma are high in conspiratorial predispositions, compared with 23 percent with postgraduate degrees.”

Not having a high school degree is one of the highest correlates for Trump support. (And people with postgraduate degrees are increasinglyleaning to the left.)

Mr. Uscinski and Mr. Parent found that high-stress situations like job uncertainty “prompt people to concoct, embrace and repeat conspiracy theories.” Other research shows that conspiracy theories can be a coping mechanism for uncertainty and powerlessness.

One study found that conservatives who believe in conspiracy theories know more about politics than conservatives who don’t. This correlation was not found for liberals. Presumably, these politically engaged conservatives would be more likely to vote in primaries.

Last week, Public Policy Polling revisited Mr. Trump’s attraction to conspiracy theories. Among voters who viewed him favorably, PPP found that 65 percent think President Obama is a Muslim; 59 percent think he was not born in the United States; 27 percent think vaccines cause autism; 24 percent think Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered; and 7 percent think Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the assassination of President Kennedy. (We should probably allow for the possibility that some survey-takers wanted to poke or provoke with their responses.)

A big source of conspiracy theories is elections. Many Americans believe they’re often decided by cheating. In The Los Angeles Times in 2014, Mr. Uscinski and Mr. Parent wrote:

The birther movement, which gave life to Mr. Trump’s political career, fits the pattern. It argues that President Obama did not actually win his elections because he was ineligible to be president.

The Sad Decline and Fall of Bernie Sanders - Duplicate - See link inside.

So tonight's Democratic primaries basically ended in a tie. There's really nothing of interest left anymore: Hillary Clinton will win the nomination, as we've all known she would for at least the past month.

The one thing I do keep wondering about is what happened to Bernie Sanders. Before this campaign, he was a gadfly, he was a critic of the system, and he was a man of strong principles. He still is, but he's also obviously very, very bitter. I wonder if all this was worth it for him? By all objective measures he did way better than anyone expected and had far more influence than anyone thought he would, and he should feel good about that. Instead, he seems more angry and resentful with every passing day.

Hillary Clinton Poised to Make Weird Kind of History on June 7

But! If Hillary Clinton can beat Bernie Sanders in Montana's Sanders County on June 7, she will have defeated Sanders in all of the Sanders Counties in the United States. Also awesome. Though perhaps not as awesome as the fact that Montana has two counties right next to each other named Phillips and Petroleum

Oops: Laura Bush Is Supporting Hillary, Condemns The GOP While Speaking About Women’s Issues

Laura Bush’s comments are making waves across the political world after she said at the 2016 Women in World Summit in New York City that she wanted our next president to be someone who cares about women in Afghanistan – it being a core issue for her. It just so happens, that describes Hillary Clinton perfectly (she visited the region 4 times during her time as Secretary of State), and, frankly, it’s not something any of the Republican candidates can run on.

If you take her for her word, that can only mean one thing, she wants Hillary Clinton to be president. She may not have used those exact words, but that’s basically what she just said. And – many people in the audience literally took it that way. For more on this, visit HERE.

If she doesn’t vote for Hillary, then she’d be supporting Donald Trump, and he’s already on the record for suggesting that the U.S. should target the families of terrorists in the region.

She may not actually go on the record and say Hillary’s name, but she doesn’t have to. Her words just did the talking for her.
