Establishment Democrats’ Sick Obsession With Attacking Sanders


UP@NIGHT

gulliver

Smell that?  It’s smoke.  Smoke pouring out of the ears of establishment Democrats.  It’s not because they Feel the Bern.  It’s due to two reasons: (1) they are furious at Sanders; and (2) their mental wheels are continuously grinding, creating massive internal friction, as they come up with one inane reason after another to blast the senator from Vermont.

You all know what I am talking about.  The endless stream of articles and posts pouring forth from the commentariat of the Democratic establishment, as well as the self-righteous comments by Clinton supporters on articles about Sanders, not to mention the vituperative remarks on Twitter.  Here’s an example from yesterday’s Washington Post, by Stuart Rothenberg, “How Bernie Sanders missed his moment.”  It’s worth quoting at length because it contains many of the accusations that are hurled at Sanders.

Apparently, getting five Sanders supporters on the Democratic National Committee’s platform committee…

Dear Senator: If You Supported Hillary in the Primaries I’m Voting Against You in November


So very frustrated with all the election fraud going on in the USA at the moment….we might as well be a third world country ruled by a dictator…..

This applies equally to governors, Members of Congress, state legislators, and any other supporter of the Democratic establishment.

I’ve had it. And so have hundreds of thousands of grass roots Democrats. Perhaps millions of us.

The Democratic party has become a mirror image of the Republicans on economic policy. On trade agreements. On military adventurism and intervention in the affairs of other countries. They have the same revolving door for industry alums and lobbyists to be appointed to their administrations. They both suck at the teat of Wall Street, they both take money from Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Ag, the military-industrial complex, insurance companies, Big Banks, and lobbyists.

They both support killing civilians in drone strikes, both support pouring billions into the Israeli treasury and back Israel’s mass murders of Palestinians.

We are supposed to overlook these atrocities because the Democrats say nice things about Hispanics and Muslims? Because…

“Bernie or Bust” vs “Vote Blue No Matter Who”


Armory of the Revolution

Bernie-Sanders-Hillary-Clinton-header

Hillary doesn’t get it. The Democratic establishment doesn’t get it. The political pundits don’t get it. The media talking heads don’t get it.

But almost everyone under thirty does get it.

The movement to elect Bernie Sanders is not a political movement!

Let me say that again. Politics has nothing to do with the support for Bernie. Those supporting Bernie do not give a damn about the Democratic party or politics as usual.

We care about fairness, about democracy, about providing healthcare and education to everyone. We oppose plutocracy, oligarchs, corporate control of government. We believe government should work for everyone, not just those who can buy Members of Congress.

We think the current system of private funding of campaigns is obscene.

And we will not support anyone who is part of that obscene system.

All the “Vote Blue No Matter Who” rhetoric is falling on ears deaf to Hillary’s…

Swing States Won’t Matter When Bernie Runs as an Independent, and Why He’d Win the Election.


soliloquize

The Media and Clinton campaign has tried one last ditch effort to coerce the Bernie-or-Busters into kowtowing to the preordained queen.  This attempt is the “Don’t Split the Vote” slogan.  Remembering the wounds of the Florida debacle in 2000 (and wrongfully blaming it on Nader), the Dems are freaking scared of Sanders emerging as a third party independent candidate.

However, times have changed since Nader, Gore, and Bush.  Nader’s campaign never had this kind of traction.  The Bernie Bus has the overwhelming support of independents, half the democrats, and even a sliver of life-long republicans.  The Vermont Populist has mastered the art of small donor contributions, and he found the fuse of the Millennials (which have overtaken the Boomers in terms of population).

That got me thinking.  “Splitting the vote” only pertains to the swing states.  At first glance, a mildly-supported third party candidate would ding the party…

Hillary is Going Broke and the DNC Can’t Help Anymore


Political Reads

Edited by Samantha Bates

It was supposed to be easy, a mere formality of a primary campaign and then the nomination of Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate for President. The charade would last until March, and then Clinton would pivot to the general election. But something unexpected happened: the fringe candidate Bernie Sanders caught fire, and now Hillary is going broke.

Major media outlets reported in February that the majority of her donors had already reached their maximum campaign contribution, which wouldn’t have been an issue had things gone as planned. The problem was Sanders was still in the race and on pace to raise 40 million+ for the month. Clinton desperately needed to close Sanders out in March. However, she failed to do so.

Sanders opened March with an upset in Michigan and finished with a rout of the Northwest and Hawaii. To make matters worse for the…

Why Hillary Clinton Is Not Entitled to Bernie Sanders’ Supporters


Very well said…….if you haven’t been paying attention to politics in America you are missing the three ring circus of deception, deceit, lying, pandering……….

PoliticallyDC

Written by Dominica R. Convertino

Throughout the last few weeks, mainstream media outlets and political pundits alike have incessantly derided the many supporters of Bernie Sanders who claim that they will not be voting for Hillary Clinton in November, should she win the Democratic nomination. Pundits argue that if they effectively fail to rally behind Hillary, Bernie’s supporters will be to blame in November if Donald Trump is subsequently elected. Here is why the pundits are definitively wrong, and why this rhetoric is not only misleading, but incredibly offensive to the democratic process:

First, let me preface this argument by pointing out that this entire debate over whether or not Bernie’s supporters should throw their weight behind Clinton in the general election is (intentionally) misleading, as it maintains an underlying assumption that Hillary Clinton is the inevitable Democratic nominee; an assumption that we have been force-fed for years by both…

….hello……


door-

…her hand slowly reached out and she turned the door knob..not sure of what she would find or if anyone would be there.  It was so long since she had been to this place.  She missed her friends but life as a way sometimes of just putting you into isolation.  You focus on what you need to do to survive and move on. No time time for chit chat or carrying on.

The room was dark and dusty…it was quiet….where were her finds..so was sure they must still be here somewhere. She hopped they would still be here. She thought of them often, Paula, Pink, Jenny, Paula Renee.  She walked cautiously around hoping to find her friends still there.

Hello everyone life does have a way of taking over sometimes. I have missed all of my wordpress family and I certainly hope you are all still out there. I have been in school at the local college studying yoga, music, and taking photoshop courses.

I have also spent the past year learning to do Reiki. I will be doing a workshop and I will do a separate post about that.

I have also been working on my book, The Disillusionist,. It is quite a different beast to write a book than to do a blog. To all those writers out there that have managed to do both I applaud you. It is quite a daunting task.

Missy has had 2 cancer surgeries, first one they removed 4 lumps ( 3 cancerous 1 fatty) second surgery they removed 3.

I said no to chemo and have her on all kinds of herbal and homeopathic products. She seems to be doing okay–so far have not seen any other lumps on her.

I finally have found some good young people to work as performers–fingers crossed they all work out.

School starts again at the end of august. I will be taking a graphic design class, photography, hata yoga, and commercial music theory.

I am working towards what I want in life vs trying to walk away from something I don’t want. It’s a more positive spin on things.

That’s it for now–hopefully will have more revelant posts soon.
