This is who we nominated...more Clinton Foundation corruption (CNN)


Washington (CNN)A major political donor to the Clintons and other top Democrats was selected by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to serve on a key State Department intelligence board in 2011, despite having no clear background in the area, according to emails released this week.

Rajiv Fernando has donated $9,400 to Clinton's two White House bids -- first her 2008 run and again this year -- and has been a generous donor to Democrats running for the House and Senate and to President Barack Obama.

Fernando, a Chicago securities trader, has also been a prolific donor to the Clinton Foundation, giving at least $1 million to the organization, according to its website.

In July 2011, Fernando was appointed to a seat on the International Security Advisory Board (ISAB), a panel filled with top-level foreign policy advisers and security experts. Former Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart chairs the current panel, which includes retired generals, the former chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and other high-ranking national security experts.

This guy was a *stock broker*... How on earth does that qualify him to have top secret security clearance? You can't make this stuff up.

From LA Times Poll: Of those who already voted, Bernie 48, Hillary 43.


Now there's an interesting result.

LA Times Poll: Bernie 44, Hillary 43 (Yeah, it's the same poll linked in the other thread)


The Vermont senator has battled Clinton to a draw among all voters eligible for the Democratic primary, with 44% siding with him to 43% for Clinton. That represented a nine-point swing from a USC/Los Angeles Times poll in March, in which Clinton led handily.

Here's the *actual* poll results. Unlike the other thread that singles out what they call "reliable voters", this one includes everybody.

You want unity?

Stop the name calling. Stop the condescension. Stop the provocations.


A Bernie Supporter

Another video of the Nevada Convention. These can't be posted enough.

Does the DNC *want* to lose in November? Do they *want* a 3rd party to emerge? Unbelievable...


Update from Maine State Convention - Super Delegates' power significantly reduced

Hi all. Been a while since I've last posted, but figured it was worth it to stop in and let you know what happened at the Maine State Convention today. One of the amendments that we voted on and approved will force Super Delegates to support Presidential Candidates in proportion to the vote of the people. In other words, Bernie (or anyone) winning states with 60-70% of the vote and receiving no Super Delegate support won't happen anymore, at least in Maine. This will take effect starting in 2020. There was a big push to force the rule change to take effect immediately, but apparently there were procedural rules in place preventing that from happening. All in all it was a good day for Bernie at the convention. Here's a video of the aforementioned motion passing with a voice vote.

There have been some bizarre criticisms here, but going after the Vatican meeting is callous...

At best. It shows a complete unwillingness to see the other candidate in a positive light, which goes beyond just supporting your candidate. No rational human being could twist Bernie's meeting with the Vatican into something negative.

Press Conference where Bernie addresses the "Qualified" issue

Now, this was supposed to be a press conference on the needs of working families and the middle class, but the press being what it is of course strayed from that topic immediately and asked about what happened yesterday. Bernie addresses the issue at about 9:30

What happened tonight in Nevada underscores a theme in this primary

The Bernie Sanders campaign has the more enthusiastic supporters. Period.

Time to ignore Clinton supporters on this board and focus efforts on winning NY.

Instead of responding to their outrageous posts, volunteer. Every time they make some outlandish claim about Bernie, make a phone call to NY. Every time they post something w/ snark or malice, make a phone call to NY. If you live in or near NY, canvass. GET OUT THE VOTE. If there is a large voter turnout in NY, Bernie will win. And if Bernie wins NY, this election is damn near over.

Here's a popular phone banking website run by volunteers. https://www.berniepb.com/

Contact your local Bernie office for times and routes to canvass.

Let's do this.
