Why has Bernie not mentioned Hillary's bold faced lie on being under enemy fire? That is ligitimate.

That is not 'going negative'. Anyone who would do that....who was First Lady, AND voted for the damn war, is just not acceptable. It's just not. Why was this left out? It damaged Lara Logan and Brian Williams, and rightfully so! Just because it was in the news when ithappened, is not an answer. Why has this not been brought up to remind the voters?

Character matters.

WaPo Morning Plum- Democrats badly underestimated Bernie Sanders. That was a very serious mistake.

Democrats badly underestimated Bernie Sanders. That was a very serious mistake.
The inside track on Washington politics.

By Greg Sargent January 29 at 9:08 AM
Learn from this man, Democrats. (Joshua Lott, The Washington Post)
THE MORNING PLUM:

As we come down to the wire in Iowa, most of the reporting suggests Hillary Clinton may have a slight lead over Bernie Sanders. If she does win, it will probably offset any Sanders victory in New Hampshire, and Clinton may then pile up a string of decisive wins in more diverse states. Of course, Iowa could surprise us and Sanders could win, and we could be in for a very long battle ahead.

But whatever happens in Iowa, we can already reach this conclusion: Democrats, and Hillary Clinton, will have to engage in a serious, genuine effort to learn from the Sanders phenomenon and what it really represents.

NBC’s Kasie Hunt has a terrific segment this morning on the surprise success of Sanders’s campaign that should be a must-watch for all Democrats. It shows a range of pundits last spring mocking Sanders’s socialism, his “thick Brooklyn accent,” his age (“he looks 91″, and his manner (“he’s a loon”). But then Hunt’s segment smartly shows footage of the roaring crowds at Sanders rallies, and the deep passion and commitment of the young volunteers putting in long hours in a Sanders Iowa campaign office, concluding: “If Bernie Sanders is going to beat Hillary Clinton in Iowa, it’s because of volunteers like these, who basically live here.”

And then Hunt interviews Sanders himself, who says this: “Way back when, I don’t know if you heard it, I said: ‘Don’t underestimate me. Don’t underestimate me.'”

Just so that you know, the Tampa Bay Times, has also just endorsed Jeb Bush for the 'republicans'. You do remember Goldman Sachs did say, they'd be happy with either a Bush or a Clinton. I'm sure they would, and the puppets that they own.

Hey Chelsea-It's a "American value" for a gov to leave the state when an election has fallen apart?

He left so he could not lead! We got an appointed president. It's clear....you have not grown up enough yet to get out of the bubble. Your statement is gawd awful like the rest.

Bernie has pulled back the curtain to show the real 'Oz'

The corporations.....

who own the media and who own both parties thanks to Bill Clinton and the DLC.

They all have messed up. It's clear to all now, that our so called media works 'in concert' with our campaigns. We now know this debate is scheduled close to the primary in NH, so that the corporate media can come out in every venue, paper, TV show, and say Hillary won. They will play this up falsely until voting day, to chip away at Bernie's lead, which is the game on a campaign.

But you must pay for that yourself, with advertisement, etc., and use the money you raise.
Hillary gets all this orchestration from the media for free. How low, can this country go?

Everybody gets this, and it's one bad move after another. Now Little Debby is up against the wall, all her shenanigans laid out for all to see. Hillary should lose over this really poorly, played out campaign. After watching her conduct herself and knowing her history, I don't want her anywhere near our White House. Enough! We have had ENOUGH Hillary!

It's so plain to see that the corporations just won't be able to live without you in office.
Now we see 'Oz'.

GO BERNIE!
The United States needs you now more than ever! Please lead us out of this rot that is our country and away from those who serve to keep it this way.

Veteran letter to Sanders + his fiery floor speech against the Iraq War resolution in 2002




Open letter to Sanders from a veteran....
http://usuncut.com/politics/open-letter-to-bernie-from-iraq-veteran/

Senator Sanders,

I want to thank you. I want to thank you for exercising sound judgement even when everyone around you was beating the war drums.

See I fought in the streets of Fallujah, Iraq. I saw more blood and death than any 19 year old ever should. The amount of friends I’ve lost to war will likely be surpassed by the amount of friends I’ve since lost to suicide.

I know first hand the moral cost of war. One of the most painful truths that I must go through life with is that I fought in an unjust and unfounded war. While my intentions were good and I fought hard for the men to my left and to my right, and while I thought what I was doing what was right for the people of Iraq- I was wrong.

You knew this. You knew this before we went to war and you fought, and you spoke truth to your peers and though your words largely fell on deaf ears, I am truly heartened to know that I now have a chance to vote for a man who exercised sound and moral judgement when the war drums were beating the loudest.

I have a son. He is only one and a half years old but someday he will be 18 and I fear that if we continue to elect the same establishment politicians, he too will face the same decision that I did, and he too will go off to fight in an endless quagmire and that he too will come home, broken, and never fully returned or worse- never come home at all.

So thank you, Senator Sanders, for being of sound mind and judgement. Thank you for being the only voice in this race that does not want to continue this legacy of warfare. Thank you for being the only voice that is and has been standing up for those of us that fought in these misguided wars. Thank you for giving me hope for a peaceful future.

Sincerely, A U.S. Marine – 0311 Operation Iraqi Freedom

WaPo - Bernie Sanders is the realist we should elect

Opinion -

Jan. 25, 2016 Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks at a town-hall campaign event at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa. Mark Kauzlarich/Reuters

By Katrina vanden Heuvel January 26 at 8:04 AM

As the Iowa caucuses near, Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have released TV ads that together echo a popular theme in the mainstream media. Clinton’s ad depicts the job of the presidency as tough and change as hard. You need someone experienced who can face down foreign adversaries and stand up to reactionary Republicans. Sanders’s ad — with Simon and Garfunkel’s “America” stirring memories — offers the romance of the United States coming together. Many of the pundits agree — this is a choice between head and heart. If Democrats think with their heads, they will go with Hillary; with their hearts, with Bernie.

But this conventional wisdom clashes with the reality that this country has suffered serial devastations from choices supported by the establishment’s “responsible” candidates. On fundamental issue after issue, it is the candidate “of the heart” who is in fact grounded in common sense. It wasn’t Sanders’s emotional appeal, but his clearsightedness that led the Nation magazine, which I edit, to make only its third presidential endorsement in a primary in its 150-year history.

For example, foreign policy is considered Clinton’s strength. When terrorism hits the headlines, she gains in the polls. Yet the worst calamity in U.S. foreign policy since Vietnam surely was George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq. Clinton voted for that war; Sanders got it right and voted against. Clinton has since admitted her vote was a “mistake” but seems to have learned little from that grievous misjudgment. As secretary of state, she championed regime change in Libya that left behind another failed state rapidly becoming a backup base for the Islamic State. She pushed for toppling Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war and lobbied for arming the Syrian opposition, a program that ended up supplying more weapons to the Islamic State than to anyone else. Now she touts a “no fly zone” in Syria, an idea that has been dismissed by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as requiring some 70,000 troops to enforce, and by President Obama as well. People thinking with their heads rather than their hearts might well prefer Sanders’s skepticism about regime change to Clinton’s hawkishness.

The worst economic calamity since the Great Depression came when the excesses of Wall Street created the housing bubble and financial crisis that blew up the economy. Clinton touts her husband economic record, but he championed the deregulation that helped unleash the Wall Street wilding. The banks, bailed out by taxpayers, are bigger and more concentrated than they were before the crash. Someone using their head — not their heart — would want to make certain that the next president is independent of Wall Street and committed to breaking up the big banks and shutting down the casino. But Clinton opposes key elements of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) rational reform agenda for the banks, and her money ties to Wall Street lead any rational observer to conclude she’s an uncertain trumpet for reform.

Americans continue to suffer from a broken heath-care system that costs nearly twice per capita as those in the rest of the industrialized world — with worse results. Obama’s health reforms have helped millions get health care — particularly through the expansion of Medicaid and by forcing coverage of pre-existing conditions. But millions continue to go without care, millions more are underinsured and unable to afford decent coverage, and even more are gouged by drug companies and insurance companies that game the system’s complexities. Eventually the United States will join every other industrial nation with some form of simplified universal care. Sanders champions moving to “Medicare for all.” Clinton has mischaracterized his proposal, erroneously claiming it would “basically end all kinds of health care we know, Medicare, Medicaid, the Chip Program. It would take all that and hand it over to the states.” She says she would build on Obamacare but has yet to detail significant reforms that would take us closer to a rational health-care system. Sanders supported Obamacare but understands we can’t get to a rational health-care plan without leaders willing to take on the entrenched interests that stand in the way. It isn’t romantic to think that it is long past time for the United States to join every other industrial country and guarantee affordable health care for all.

Similarly, Clinton, like every Democratic politician, decries the big money that is corrupting our politics. But though she offers a reform agenda, she vacuums up big contributions and dark money in a complex of super PACs, saying she can’t “unilaterally disarm.” Sanders knows that the billionaires get what they pay for. He not only makes getting big money out of politics a centerpiece of his agenda, he has proved his commitment by refusing to set up a super PAC and raising his funds from millions of small donors, proving that he can raise enough to be competitive in the process. It isn’t romantic to think that this gives him the independence and credibility to actually reform the system if he is elected.

Who had the worst week in Washington? Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders - different sides on Monsanto & GMO food labeling

Monsanto is one of the top donors to the Clinton Campaign! Even hired one of their guys!
