Bernie Responds to George Clooney (video)

Jack Lew nears decision to keep Hamilton on front of $10 bill, put a woman on the $20

Source: CNN

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to announce this week that Alexander Hamilton's face will remain on the front of the $10 bill and a woman will replace Andrew Jackson on the face of the $20 bill, a senior government source told CNN on Saturday.

Lew announced last summer that he was considering redesigning the $10 bill to include the portrait of a woman. The decision to make the historic change at the expense of Hamilton drew angry rebukes from fans of the former Treasury Secretary. The pro-Hamilton movement gained steam after the smash success of the hip-hop Broadway musical about his life this year.

Those pressures led Lew to determine that Hamilton should remain on the front of the bill. Instead, a mural-style depiction of the women's suffrage movement -- including images of leaders such as Susan B. Anthony -- will be featured on the back of the bill.

A Treasury spokesman declined to comment on the pending changes. But Lew hinted that a decision could come this week.

Sen. Sanders Closing Remarks (video)

Standing ovation for @BernieSanders after closing remarks!

Thank you to the more than 27,000 New Yorkers who came out tonight

Thank you to the more than 27,000 New Yorkers who came out tonight to join our political revolution. Unbelievable

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders on Wednesday told more than 27,000 people packed into Washington Square Park and the city streets surrounding the Lower Manhattan landmark that he and Hillary Clinton have major differences on issues ranging from Wall Street reform to trade policy and how to combat climate change.

“It is not just about electing a president, it is about creating a political revolution. It is about creating a government which works for all of us, not just wealthy campaign contributors,” Sanders said from a stage in front of the park’s massive arch.

Ahead of next Tuesday’s Democratic Party primary election in New York, Sanders is on a winning streak, drawing big and boisterous crowds like the one in the park. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that our campaign today has the momentum. We have won seven out of the last eight primaries and caucuses,” he said. Sanders also leads Clinton in two recent national polls and “national poll after national poll has us defeating Donald Trump by double digits.”

Bernie Sanders’ Rally in New York City Is Insanely Large

Thousands of people are lined up tonight to see Bernie Sanders and a star-studded opening lineup in New York City for one of his biggest rallies yet.

Vampire Weekend, Spike Lee, Rosario Dawson, Linda Sarsour, Shailene Woodley, Tim Robbins, and Graham Nash will be opening for Vermont’s U.S. Senator at Washington Square Park, where Sanders is slated to speak at 8 p.m. Even though Secret Service started letting people into the park at 5 p.m., people started lining up in the early afternoon. Local news trucks started setting up at the park before 12 p.m. Eastern Time:

By 2:30 p.m. EST, thousands had already started lining up. By the looks of it, the crowd may be even larger than the 24,000-person rally then-senator Barack Obama held there in 2007. New York City-based Gothamist captured photos of the crowd eagerly waiting outside the gates well before doors were scheduled to open. Others on the ground pointed out that the line stretched for blocks

Washington Square Park, adjacent to the main campus for New York University, is a natural fit for Sen. Sanders’ rally tonight. As the Daily Beast describes it, the park is a hub for New York musicians, artists, and activists challenging the status quo. Its mere existence today can be credited to community organizer Jane Jacobs’ crusade to save the park from being destroyed for a four-lane highway.

Bernie Sanders’ wife Jane wins cheers at Farmingdale, Long Island sports bar

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane, made a campaign stop on behalf of her husband’s presidential bid Tuesday night at a Farmingdale sports bar, where hundreds of supporters cheered her promise that a vote for Sanders was a vote for democratic reform.

Jane Sanders, responding to the crowd of “Bernie!”-chanting supporters at the Main Event sports bar in Farmingdale, said voters in the April 19 primary “have a very clear choice: status quo establishment, or political revolution — let’s take our democracy back.”

Meryl Lipton, a dental hygienist from Sea Cliff, said she was moved to canvass in Dix Hills Tuesday for the campaign because she admired Sanders’ pledge to avoid donations from corporations. “The amount of money influencing media and politics is poisoning the way that the 99 percent — us — our voices are getting lost,” Lipton said.

Zohreh Aminian, an academic review director from Woodbury, came with her family to meet Jane Sanders. Aminian said she liked Bernie Sanders’ plan to make college more accessible, his economic politics and that “in general, he’s a very decent man.”


Sen. Jeff Merkley first member of the Senate, Why I’m Supporting Bernie Sanders

NO decision we make as Americans more dramatically affects the direction of our country than our choice for president. He or she is more than the manager of the executive branch, commander in chief or appointer of judges. The president reflects, but also helps define, our national values, priorities and direction.

After considering the biggest challenges facing our nation and the future I want for my children and our country, I have decided to become the first member of the Senate to support my colleague Bernie Sanders for president.

From her time advocating for children as a young lawyer to her work as first lady of Arkansas and the United States, and as a senator and secretary of state, Hillary Clinton has a remarkable record. She would be a strong and capable president.

But Bernie Sanders is boldly and fiercely addressing the biggest challenges facing our country.
