Pelosi pans superdelegate system

"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday amplified her criticism of the Democrats' presidential primary system, saying the states' pledged delegates — and not the superdelegates — should decide the winner.

"I'm not a believer in the sway of superdelegates deciding who is going to be the nominee," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. "I think we have a democratic process where people vote on both sides of the aisle … and that that should determine who the nominee is.

Pelosi made waves by making similar comments amid the 2008 primary contest between then-Sens. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.). The move prompted sharp criticism from Clinton supporters because Obama, at the time, enjoyed a lead among pledged delegates and her remarks were viewed as a tacit endorsement of him. "

I commend Pelosi for her consistency as no one should get to vote twice.

As Presidential Campaign Unfolds, So Do Inquiries Into Clinton’s Emails

Along with Hillary's aid being granted immunity. We have this

"Last week Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of United States District Court in Washington allowed the questioning after a hearing in which he criticized the State Department’s “constant drip” of revelations about emails from the server and said there were many unanswered questions about who authorized its use.

“It just boggles the mind that the State Department allowed this circumstance to arise in the first place,” said Judge Sullivan, who was appointed to the District Court in 1994 by President Bill Clinton and to lower courts by Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush. “It’s just very, very, very troubling.”

Judge Sullivan’s ruling left open the possibility of additional testimony, including testimony from Mrs. Clinton. “I think there are some legitimate issues that arise because of this very atypical system that was created,” he said."

Larry Fink and His BlackRock Team Poised to Take Over Hillary Clinton’s Treasury Department

Crazy stuff if true


"Larry Fink and His BlackRock Team Poised to Take Over Hillary Clinton’s Treasury Department

Goldman Sachs paid Hillary Clinton $675,000 for three speeches, but an even bigger Wall Street player stands ready to mold and enact her economic and financial policy if she becomes president.

BlackRock is far from a household name but it is the largest asset management firm in the world, controlling $4.6 trillion in investor funds — about a trillion dollars more than the annual federal budget, and five times the assets of Goldman Sachs. And Larry Fink, BlackRock’s CEO, has assembled a veritable shadow government full of former Treasury Department officials at his company."

TYT: The Media Swears Hillary's Unstoppable Because They Know She Isn't

It's definitely a more challenging road ahead for Bernie but some valid points are made in this video.

Clinton's southern 'firewall' of support no sure thing come general election

"Clinton will need to do more than just win the lion’s share of the African American vote. Barack Obama won re-election four years ago with 93% of the black vote, 71% of the Latino vote, and 39% of the white vote. While minority turnout hit a record high, it only represented one quarter of the total electorate.
To win in the solidly Republican states of the south, Clinton will need to drive high turnout among minorities and hold a larger share of the white vote than Obama. Neither of those scenarios is clear-cut, not least with a likely opponent as unpredictable as Donald Trump."

Did Bill Clinton, Mayor Walsh Break Massachusetts Voting Laws for Hillary?

Not to sure about the laws on this but something to think about.

Bernie's Big Budget Cuts

"Sen. Bernie Sanders has big plans. Make college free. Create a single-payer health care system. Invest in repairing our crumbling infrastructure and upgrading it for a future built on clean transport and energy. If the 2016 presidential candidate succeeds in pulling all this off, the lives of Americans will definitely be better. "

Black votes Matter

Although I wish that these videos were made awhile ago. I'll take it.

Hillary under fire after Boeing gave her foundation $900,000 weeks after she made 'shameless pitch'

"During a Boeing shareholder meeting on Monday,a conservative activist accused the aircraft company's CEO of buying then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's 'commercial advocacy' in Russia by making a $900,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation.
The money was earmarked for rebuilding schools in Haiti in the wake of a devastating 2010 earthquake.
But the contribution came just months after Mrs. Clinton traveled to Moscow where she made what she called a 'shameless pitch' to ask a newly formed state-owned airline 'to buy Boeing aircraft.' It's not clear whether there was a quid-pro-quo promise of the donation in exchange for Mrs. Clinton's cheerleading."

Why does it always come back to the foundation.

Also note that I realize that this was brought up by a conservative activist and that is fair to point out but that doesn't change the meat of the story.
