OFFICIAL ~> HILLARY CLINTON DEMOCRATIC PARTY NOMINEE!

WOOHOO! #STRONGERTOGETHER #UNITEAGAINSTHATE

A few emails that no one knew existed until yesterday...

Didn't sway 4 million more voters to Hillary. Hillary swayed 4 million more voters to support her. The DNC bent over backwards for Bernie Sanders, allowing a non Democrat to run in their primaries, and giving him access to decades of tools, resources, and voter rolls.

Hillary won fair and square. With the primaries behind us now, and DWS out, it is time to unite behind Hillary. If your not voting for Hillary because she's "not progressive enough" when the alternative is ACTUAL fascism, then your progressivism is really just narcissism. Lets extend an olive branch, unite to defeat the neo-fascist, and then hold Hillary's feet to the fire for our causes. Anything less would be uncivilized.

Meanwhile...Over in Trumpistan...

They're now using actual Trump campaign propaganda. "Crooked Hillary" and "Corrupt Kaine" are literally Trump phrases. He literally just tweeted those words.

This isnt cool. We were played. Honestly, its a bit fucked up. We spent years engaging in debate with them, trying to find common ground with them, offering kind words when they were angry or upset, etc. Jeez, I even see names there of people I've actually donated money to when they claimed on DU they fell on hard times. Despite minor policy differences, I thought they were our allies. It was all a sham. And Skinner, EarlG, Elad et al, welcomed them and their views with open arms, as we all did, and this is how they repay us, by ripping off DU with a shitty prototype website used to help Trump win the nomination? They are not progressives, they are bitter angry anarchists, disruptors, cynics, and authoritarian agent provocateurs. How do I know? Because Progressives build, anarchists destroy. I know they arent progressives because ACTUAL progressives (see: Liz Warren, Sherrod Brown, Bernie Sanders, etc.) are actually voting for Hillary. They are just anonymous internet posters who would rather destroy out of vindictiveness than ally with the candidate who has overwhelming support of every marginalized demographic in America. We must stay anchored in optimism. I'm grateful for DU and the open minded pragmatism here.

Donald Trump has 5 kids with 3 different wives?

What would the media say if it were Hillary or even Obama in that scenario? Smell the double standard?

Just to clear the air on Kaine...

He has a 100% lifetime rating from NARAL and Planned Parenthood, and also voted against defunding Planned Parenthood every time.

Edit to add: And an F rating from the NRA.

"Islamic terrorism" vs. "Radical jihadism". Lets just call it what it really is....

Rightwing terrorism.

It's not the liberals and moderates pulling off these terror attacks, it's the ultra-conservative religious misogynist gun humpers.

Sound familiar?

I don't buy into the "Americans are angry" bullshit.

Concerned? Sure. Furious? No.

Americans are hopeful, optimistic, proud.

Time to change the narrative on this whole "Americans are angry" bullshit, it will eat the heart, soul, and psyche of our Nation and leave a trail of its devoured corpse. America is what we project onto it, and unless we project optimism, cynicism will rot its core. Projecting anger and fear is a rightwing trait. If we project anger and fear, our citizens will project anger and fear. If we project hope and optimism, our citizens will project hope and optimism. Anger and fear will destroy America's psyche and our social fabric.

I honestly believe, despite the realization that America is far from perfect, and despite the realization we still have much more work to do, that we are actually living, collectively, in the happiest time in US history.

Clinton/Warren 2016

But I have to ask, why is no one talking about Gavin Newsom? Sure, you're probably thinking "but Janey, HRC has Cali in the bag". Ok, but he's a progressive Lt. Gov of a state that is the worlds 6th biggest economy, which would put Pence in his place at debates, he's very pro-lgbt and pro-woman, which would put Pence in his place at debates, he's young and charismatic, which would put Pence in his place at debates, did I mention he's 2nd in charge of a state that is the worlds 6th biggest economy? Gov.Pence has nothing on him.

Also, what is Trump going to do, start dissing California? He would lose every blue state and every swing state attacking an ultra-successful ultra-diverse state that contributes more to America's GDP than any other. Every celebrity in the world would also shred him (being Cali is their home). Another plus is, Gavin is very comfortable around media and interviews. He's great on Bill Maher and he does a great job promoting and defending liberal values.

Clinton/Newsom 2016?

"All Lives Matter!"

"All Lives Matter!"-people who want to start 5 more wars, further militarize the police, advocate state sanctioned murder, arm everyone, deny people healthcare and food aid.

Heal thyself, hypocrites.

#EndTheGOP

He’s gotten the freest ride a top-tier presidential candidate has ever gotten. The freest, bar none

So Bernie’s still at it, telling George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that he thinks it’s not impossible for him to get 70 percent of the vote in every remaining state. Impossible. If anyone’s likely to hit 70 anywhere, it’s Hillary Clinton in Puerto Rico. Maybe Sanders can do it in the Dakotas, but even that seems ludicrous, because those states have primaries, not caucuses, and he’s never won a primary by that kind of margin except in his home state.

-snip-

But I don’t know a single person whose opinions I really value, and I include here Sanders supporters I know, who takes these polls seriously. There’s one simple reason Sanders polls better against Trump than Clinton does, which is that no one (yet) knows anything negative about him. He’s gotten the freest ride a top-tier presidential candidate has ever gotten. The freest, bar none.

While he’s all but called Clinton a harlot, she’s barely said a word about him, at least since the very early days of the contest. And while Republicans have occasionally jibed at him, like Lindsey Graham’s actually quite funny remark that Sanders “went to the Soviet Union on his honeymoon and I don’t think he ever came back,” in far more serious ways, Republican groups have worked to help Sanders weaken Clinton.

That would change on a dime if he became the nominee. I don’t think they’d even have to go into his radical past, although they surely would. Michelle Goldberg of Slate has written good pieces on this. He took some very hard-left and plainly anti-American positions. True, they might not matter to anyone under 45, but more than half of all voters are over 45. And then, big-P politics aside, there’s all that farkakte nonsense he wrote in The Vermont Freeman in the early ’70s about how we should let children touch each others’ genitals and such. Fine, it was 40-plus years ago but it’s out there, and it’s out there.
