A good politician can pretend to like somebody he or she truly despises, and you will never know the difference. This applies to showing a smiling face or genuine concern for wealthy people, poor people, religious people, minorities, or anyone else. No matter who you are, a capable politician can look you in the eye and make you believe he or she is on your side and will fight to the death for you.

These old photos record Hillary's life. I don't know whether you have ever read any of Kissinger"s books, but if you think you want to vote for Hillary, I suggest you read at least one, remember that she accepts his advice and rethink who you want to vote for.

A lot of Hillary supporters know very little about her foreign policy positions, the ideas that influenced them and how she would put our country at risk as president.

Opinion polls are nice, but few poll participants know more about the candidates than what they see in short snippets of stories on TV.

Hillary is a Kissinger admirer. That alone is enough to cause me to vote for Bernie.

NanceGreggs

... that you are privy to what HRC supporters know or don't know about her foreign policy positions, or that few poll participants know more about the candidates than what they see on TV.

How many HRC supporters have you interviewed in order to gain this startling information? How many poll participants have you contacted and questioned about their political opinions, and what they base those opinions on?

I have no need to rethink who I support. But I do appreciate your extensive - uh? - "knowledge" about how little HRC supporters and poll participants know. Given the subject, your research must be extensive.

The fact remains, however, that posting photos of Hillary with Kissinger or Trump, which BS supporters do over and over, is almost invariably a sign that Bernie is having a bad news day.

I was wondering why you didn't just get to the point, instead of feigning knowledge about HRC supporters, poll participants, etc.

Well, it looks like the majority of Democrats are, according to your valuable insight, all uninformed. That's a LOT of people - but they'll have plenty of company under that bus - the one under which BSers keep throwing everyone who doesn't agree with them.

So you believe that all of the millions of people who support HRC are uninformed. How - hmm - "informative" that is, in terms of how you think.

And of course, you would be in a position to know just how informed or uninformed every Hillary supporter is, wouldn't you?

Thu Dec 31, 2015, 11:25 PM
Dec 2015
https://berniesanders.com/press-release/sanders-visits-king-center/

Sanders said he was “honored and pleased” to meet at the King Center with the Rev. Bernice King, the Kings’ youngest daughter.

http://www.advocate.com/politics/marriage-equality/2013/07/28/bernice-king-opposes-marriage-equality-im-not-enemy

King has in the past said her father “did not take a bullet for same-sex marriage,” and in 2004 she marched in Atlanta alongside antigay Pastor Eddie Long to protest same-sex marriage.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernice_King#Views

King is opposed to abortion. She believes that life begins and should be protected by law at conception.[139] On August 22, 2013, King expressed her belief that "life begins in a woman’s womb.”[140]

Gay rights

In 2005, she led a march to her father's gravesite and at the same time called out for a constitutional ban on gay marriage. She once said to LGBT supporters that her father did not take a bullet for same-sex marriage.[134]

During Atlanta's 2012 Martin Luther King Jr. Day rally, King included LGBT people among the various groups who needed to come together to "fulfill her father’s legacy."[135] When speaking at Brown University in 2013, King made statements regarding her beliefs about the origins of marriage: "I believe that the family was created and ordained first and foremost by God, that he instituted the marriage, and that's a law that he instituted and not... that we instituted"[136] and about the origins of same-sex attraction: "I also don't believe everybody's born that way. I know some people have been violated. I know some people have unfortunately delved into it as an experiment".[137] King has publicly stated that her father would have been against gay marriage.[138]

Oh, and there is this too...

Bernice King’s gay-inclusive speech at MLK rally surprises LGBT participants
By Dyana Bagby

Atlanta — Bernice King took the stage today at Atlanta’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. rally and included gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people among the various groups she said need to come together to fulfill her father’s legacy.

In a passionate, sermon-like speech about building unity, King said she didn’t care if people were Hindu, Buddhist, Islamist, were from the North side or the South side, were black or white, were “heterosexual or homosexual, or gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender” — that all people were needed to create unity.

LGBT people who attended the rally said they were shocked that King – who has a long anti-gay past — actually acknowledged the community in a public speech, but said they were also glad because it shows people can evolve.

Rev. Maressa Pendermon, a minister with LGBT-inclusive Unity Fellowship Church, said she at first intended to tune out King because of her anti-gay past, but decided to pay attention one more time.

For her father’s vision to be realized we’ve got to come together across boundaries and then she got in preacher mode. Then she said ‘heterosexual or homosexual,’ and then backed up and said ‘lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.’ We need all of us,” Pendermon said.

...

Paulina Helm-Hernandez, the LGBT honorary grand marshal for today’s march and rally, said she also was surprised to hear King’s inclusive words.

“I thought it was great. First time I’ve ever heard her say lesbian, gay, bi and trans out loud,” she said. “She said homosexual at first and then corrected herself. It takes a lot of grace to do something like that when you’re on a roll.”


http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2012/01/bernice-kings-gay-inclusive-speech-at-mlk-rally-surprises-lgbt-participants/

Clinton evolved right on LGBT issues? So it is ok for Bernice King to do so as well? Or is it not because she is black and met with Sanders?

Better get back to the Clinton Cave and get your story straight.

How about her association with The Family those LGBT bigots?

Perhaps he association and support for Rahm Emanuel two weeks ago for his job in Chicago that is now blowing up in his face?

Sanders meeting with King is not condoning her beliefs. She is still the daughter of MLK and is respected for her civil rights work.

Sanders also gave a speech at Liberty University. He also did not condone their bigoted thoughts or beliefs.

Has Clinton disavowed her friendly connections to the Trumps, the Family, or Rahm?

I will wait while you go find out.

Clinton spoke from the same pulpit at Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church where King preached his Sunday sermons as pastor from 1954 to 1960.

King's daughter, Bernice King, was scheduled to give the benediction. Fred Gray, the lawyer who represented the women who sued to overturn the segregated bus seating ordinance, will also speak.

Earlier, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, the lone Democrat and African American member of Alabama's congressional delegation, told the crowd "old battles have become new again."

snip
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is not backing down from his Medicare privatization proposals, in the wake of the GOP's stunning defeat in the NY-26 special election. And as ABC News reports, he's getting some friendly advice from an unlikely source: Democratic former President Bill Clinton.


As ABC notes, Clinton's actual speech was substantively the same as his discussion with Ryan: The NY-26 election turned on the public not liking Ryan's Medicare proposals, and Clinton agrees with that same judgment to oppose Ryan's plan, but he also cautioned against doing nothing on the issue as a reaction to the election.

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/08/bernie-sanders-2016-democrats-121181

Democrats, Welch recalled, were “extremely upset.”
Sanders responded by intensifying his invective.
“The main difference between the Democrats and the Republicans in this city,” he said in an interview in Burlington in July with a Cornell student writing a master’s thesis, “is that the Democrats are in insurance and the Republicans are in banking.”
In that summer’s issue of Vermont Affairs magazine, he called the Democratic Party “ideologically bankrupt,” then added: “They have no ideology. Their ideology is opportunism.”
Kunin won. Sanders got only 15 percent of the vote.
