I've paid attention to Senator Sanders for years

Always consistent.
And to see what the corporate TV is doing to him is very unfair.
Keeping him off the air early through middle campaign, I think intentionally.
The 1% has their 2 candidates.
It's a corrupt club and like the late great Carlin said, "we ain't in it".

To the point



Unfortunately the media bubble wants a coronation they chose a while ago...years ago.

Bernie has inconvenienced the mainstream's plan. They can't wait to be done with him. But they focus too much on the persona hence their fawning over HRC. They have to realize by now this isn't about Bernie per se?
It doesn't matter anymore about a personality. What has happened is that at least half of the Democratic Party has stood up and said we are sick of the status quo. We've been met by ridicule.

We'll see in November.

Death of environmentalists, leftists, and above all natives...

...in Honduras.

A Hillary State Department approved situation there, the effects of which are happening now.

It's the same war they called it "Manifest Destiny" in my school books in the 1960s and 1970s.
I was raised sanatized from this historic brutality against native cultures...but I found out.

There's a reason Howard Dean supports Hillary


Anybody with any sense would see he's extremely biased.

93 percent of the Great Barrier Reef now bleached

Another tipping point being past.
I fear for future generations like my grandkids.


‘And then we wept': Scientists say 93 percent of the Great Barrier Reef now bleached

Australia’s National Coral Bleaching Task Force has surveyed 911 coral reefs by air, and found at least some bleaching on 93 percent of them. The amount of damage varies from severe to light, but the bleaching was the worst in the reef’s remote northern sector — where virtually no reefs escaped it.

If I were Bernie...

...I'd debate her again and bring up Honduras. She supported Reagan-like, Oliver North-like death squads that are killing Progressives and Environmentalists and Leftists as I write this.

And you think they are nasty to us here on the DU?

Blood is being shed by these corporatist fascists.
Stealing land from the natives for capitalism selfish gain.

You may not like Jeff Weaver

But you know what...

Hillary's campaign manager has a public relations firm (The John Podesta Group) that coddles and molds the image of the Saudi elite to further their terrorist goals via weapons sales should have been enough to turn all Democratic Party voters off.
Especially considering the 9/11 attacks.

But no...you Hillary supporters are celebrating.

Go figure.

Just the fact the Hillary's campaign manager...

Hillary..."getting things done" regarding minimum wage

But who cares right?
I mean where is Honduras anyway?



Hillary Clinton has Hondurans’ blood on her hands


Berta Cáceres RIP


Since 2009, a remarkable percentage of the violence has been directed at the resistance movement. Murders, beatings, rapes and threats have all been waged against anyone who organizes for their basic rights.

“Homicides, feminicides, political persecution, disappearances and targeted assassinations have escalated since the 2009 military coup against elected President Manuel Zelaya.” (July 17, 2014, Telesur)


Clinton’s book, “Hard Choices,” she wrote: “In the subsequent days , I spoke with my counterparts around the hemisphere, including Secretary Espinosa in Mexico. We strategized on a plan to restore order in Honduras and ensure that free and fair elections could be held quickly and legitimately, which would render the question of Zelaya moot.”

Why U.S. wanted Zelaya out

Why was Zelaya so dangerous to U.S. imperialism? Why did they want him out?

The International Action Center sent a delegation to Honduras with Honduras USA Resistencia not long after the June 2009 coup. Juan Barahona, labor leader and representative of the National Front of the People’s Resistance (FNRP), told the delegation that Zelaya was about to support a major raise in the minimum wage. Others corroborated this, with some saying the raise was 60 percent.

“This infuriated two U.S. companies, Chiquita Brands International (formerly United Fruit) and Dole Food Company,”
said John Perkins, author of “The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,” in an interview with the website Truthout. The big corporations feared that a rise in Honduras’ minimum wage could spread to other countries in Latin America.



The 2009 coup helped militarize the country even further. Marjorie Cohen writes in Truthdig, “Amid all this, the United States has added two military bases in Honduras — bringing the total to 14 — and increased its financing of the Honduran police and military.”

The illegal, U.S.-backed coup ousted a progressive president and ushered in a wave of repression. Hillary Rodham Clinton has the blood of Berta Cáceres, Nelson García and the over 25,000 people that have been killed since 2009 on her hands.

Why I'm not supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton

Here's my expanded version of why she will not get my vote in the primary.

...


Hillary was paid heavily for speeches to the same institutions who crashed the economy with their hedge fund schemes and toxic mortgage-backed securities.

Her son-in-law worked 8 years in the hedge fund industry at Goldman Sachs before starting his own hedge fund group into which the Goldman Sachs CEO is invested.

And her campaign manager John Podesta (Group) handles PR (public relations) for billions of dollars in arms sales to the Saudis from such big players like Lockheed Martin.
You know Saudi Arabia?... the country responsible for 9/11?
Well the John Podesta Group is essentially a go-between that helps Saudi Arabia with their image to further sales growth in weaponry, etc.

In Latin America her support for coup regimes, militarization, and privatization; trade deals that wreak economic havoc, all of which have resulted in death.

"Hillary has nothing to brag about: Her foreign policy record is a disaster"

http://www.salon.com/2016/01/23/there_is_no_foreign_policy_d_league_hillarys_foreign_policy_disastrous_experience_partner/

She has waffled mightily regarding the potentially disastrous Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal (TPP).

She was for fracking and the Keystone XL pipeline before she told us she isn't.

She is a recent convert to supporting same sex marriage after a decade of opposing it.

Look...the military industrial banking complex is powerful and they want her at the helm.
The .1%'s gravy train must be protected in their view.

Bottom line...The powers that be are much more comfortable with her as President rather than Bernie.
