Jimmy Carter, Seeing Resurgence of Racism, Plans Baptist Conference for Unity

Former President Jimmy Carter, who has long put religion and racial reconciliation at the center of his life, is on a mission to heal a racial divide among Baptists and help the country soothe rifts that he believes are getting worse.

In an interview on Monday, Mr. Carter spoke of a resurgence of open racism, saying, “I don’t feel good, except for one thing: I think the country has been reawakened the last two or three years to the fact that we haven’t resolved the race issue adequately.”

He said that Republican animosity toward President Obama had “a heavy racial overtone” and that Donald J. Trump’s surprisingly successful campaign for president had “tapped a waiting reservoir there of inherent racism.”

Mr. Carter conducted telephone interviews to call attention to a summit meeting he plans to hold in Atlanta this fall to bring together white, black, Hispanic and Asian Baptists to work on issues of race and social inequality. Mr. Carter began the effort, called the New Baptist Covenant, in 2007, but it has taken root in only a few cities. The initiative is expanding to enlist Baptist congregations across the country to unite across racial lines.

If Hillary loses this election it is all on Bernie Sanders and his supporters

His attacks on Hillary are toxic and misdirected.

My, God, can they get any worse?

When will the hate fest of our presumptive nominee stop on DU?

These posters are never going to vote for Democrats, they are here just to disrupt and peddle right wing hate.

2016, GOP & the NRA claim Hillary will take your guns, Where have we heard this before?

Really? Isn't this bullshit rehashed issue getting old?

In 2008, we heard that Obama was coming for our guns. And every Democrat for the last x number of elections has been going to take our guns.

Guess what, everyone still has their guns! How do we break this bullshit lie the NRA and the GOP keep peddling?

Here is how Bernie Sanders became like Donald Trump

When Donald Trump applauded the violent thugs at his rallies, he became a violent thug himself. Sanders is now no different, and that’s distressing.

Bernie Sanders Willing to Harm Hillary Clinton

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.




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.



For weeks, some current and former Sanders campaign workers have privately acknowledged feeling disheartened about Mr. Weaver’s determination to go after the Democratic National Committee, fearing a pitched battle with the party they hope to support in the general election. The intraparty fighting has affected morale, they say, and raised concerns that Mr. Weaver, a longtime Sanders aide who more recently ran a comic book store, was not devoted to achieving Democratic unity. Several described the campaign’s message as having devolved into a near-obsession with perceived conspiracies on the part of Mrs. Clinton’s allies.

Democratic leaders said they wanted to do everything possible to avoid having Clinton-Sanders tensions send the Philadelphia convention into the sort of chaos they had expected to mar the Republican convention. So far, though, Mr. Sanders has not indicated that he would ask his delegates to support Mrs. Clinton, as she did in 2008 for Barack Obama.

Bernie Sanders cannot proclaim he is a Democrat, a Progressive, a Liberal, or a Socialist with this type of destructive intentions. He will destroy the country rather than swallow his pride. For that he can go straight to #%!!

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.
