Thu May 26, 2016, 09:16 PM

What the fuck are you people thinking?

By you people I mean all of the allegedly smart people at the DNC, the State parties, the Superdelegates, and members of the Brock Brigade.

How can you so fucking enthusiastically nominate a candidate that doesn't have a little luggage, but a whole fucking train that would give a skycap an erection thinking about the charges.

Yeah sure she is tough and can withstand 12 hours in front of a committee, but you and I know that the republican trophy hunters won't leave your candidate alone, not for a second. So when exactly will your candidate have the fucking time to accomplish anything? I mean seriously the time and staffing requirements would be fucking immense.

I can understand the fuck them attitude, I have a case of it myself. But still, when you have an alternative who will bring hundreds of thousands of energized people with fresh ideas and ideals into the party, compared to the inevitable train wreck of investigation after investigation over made up shit from fucking drudge or whoever else is subverting discourse this time. Why is this choice not a no brainer? Seriously.

When you add to that a fucking anvilhead cumulus hovering over the Hoover Building ready to spin off a political tornado the likes of which could land poor Dorothy in the Federal munchkinland in Kansas.

Really? You don't think that will happen?

Don't forget that she laid bare to governments and pissant crackers alike a significant portion of the communications of the U.S. Secretary of State. Stop and soak that shit in for a minute. She will see charges because you don't fuck over the intel community. Putting that shit out there fucks over the intel community. Big Time.

So please, explain why nominating Hillary is a good idea.

41. You don't see the bigger picture. HRC won't be the candidate because

the party leadership realized in March 2015 that she had effectively made herself unviable as candidate. But she has a huge organization which needed to be preserved so they let her play out this Kabuki Theatre. But we've now come to the last Act. Time for her to exit the stage so her successor can start the campaign in earnest.

Sorry if this is upsetting news, but that's how this is playing out.

53. No, she's not. Not until the Convention nominates her. It won't

Because by then she will have released her delegates. How that gets sorted out is largely up to Barney Frank and the Rules Committee, which can do pretty much what they will. They aren't stupid enough to let her run as an unindicted co-conspirator.

at the Convention. That's not necessarily a good thing. The outcome for Hillary Clinton was foreordained when it was revealed in March 2015 that she was running classified materials across a noncertified server and a number had been hacked by a Romanian who had sold them to Russia.

Do you really think the Democratic Party should still allow HRC to capture the nomination if it's confirmed that Hillary violated her security clearance, as it surely will be in the IC and FBI reports? Do you think the party leadership hasn't done succession planning, and can't you tell that's already in process?

the Dem Convention when her name is put into nomination that it will be official.


Like Trump--yesterday he became the presumptive nominee for the Repup Party when he met the goal in his delegates.

115. Of 20 candidates who began, only one is

head and shoulders over the rest in the popular vote but, notably, the choice of a broad, diverse spectrum of Americans.

Hillary Clinton. We should be proud of her enemies, because they are the kind of people one should be ashamed to ally with.

Not just the greedy wealthy and their legions working so hard to continue the transfer of our wealth and power to them. Also those people who repay the right's 25-year estimated 2-billion-dollar investment in destroying Hillary Clinton by eagerly gulping the unending Kool-Aid.

But, they've always failed because the real enemy they're trying to take down is the American people. And that's quite a big job, though they came very close. We will make sure they fail again, this time cripplingly, because we have to. And then we're going to take them down.


I like this picture because it shows her for the tough, battle-scared warrior she is.

35. With what's blowing up right now over her emails

 

you might want to reconsider.

Or face the possibility of a nominee who is totally discredited because of actions taken when Secretary of State. Think about that for a bit. She's supposed to be so experienced, so pragmatic, so much better than her opponent, and she did what? And it's not as though she wasn't told not to do it. And it's not as though she hasn't lied, delayed, and obfuscated for how long now?

Not someone I want to see in the White House.

And she STILL hasn't sealed the deal, which is pretty incredible, considering that back in January we were told that Bernie would at best win one primary, New Hampshire, and maybe not even that one.

67. Sigh, this stupid inaccurate talking point needs to die

 

But here I'll explain it again for the umteenth time.

Clinton has won the following open primaries:

South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Mississippi, Illinois, Missouri, Ohio.

Sanders has won the following open primaries:

Vermont, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana.

Which one of those lists is longer? Sanders wins caucuses where far fewer people are able to vote. He loses primaries regardless of if they are closed or open. The claim that he would win if only the primaries were open is just blatantly false.

Here I'll even throw in the closed primaries that Sanders as won:

New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Democrats Abroad, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Oregon.

Clinton has won more open primaries than Sanders has won both open and closed primaries put together. Please quit repeating the obviously false claim that Sanders would be winning if only more of the primaries were open. Sanders mostly wins low turnout caucuses where far fewer people vote.

180. The massive crowds

at Bernie's rallies, the repeated results of the polls, his highly successful fund raising, and his ubiquity on social media belie Hi11ary's claim that she has received "more votes." Given all her other lies -- and the relentless voter/election fraud -- I find this claim of "more votes" both specious and irrelevant.

Furthermore, I find it deeply distressing that the Democratic Party is supporting a candidate whose popularity is in the toilet, and who's being investigated by the FBI. MOST distressing.

There's still room for the pledged count to level. I think it will be very close by the convention. She started with 400 supers before Bernie got in, so we'll see what happens.

Obviously I'm thinking she hasn't won yet.

Backroom deal? Who said anything about any backroom deal? This shit will happen in the open so everyone knows WTF is going on.

Class warfare? Yeah we plan to fight back. We also know about sound governance. That you don't know that about Bernie makes me wonder if you've been avoiding learning about him.

80. No better alternative

There were only two candidates and I don't believe Bernie could win. If Bernie was the candidate they would be all over him on policy. They would run ads showing people in emergency rooms having heart attacks being told they they will have to wait nine months for an appointment. They would be all over the socialist label and show video of bread lines in Venezuela. They'd show people unable to pay the bills because of Bernie's higher taxes.

Personal baggage hurts but people can overlook it. Look at how much they've overlooked on Trump. What matters more is policy. I don't think the middle would choose Bernie's policies once they get the GOP treatment.

Imagine you are buying a car. One car is in bad mechanical condition. The other is in better mechanical condition but when you drive it it goes in the opposite direction of where you want to go. Which car would you choose?

43. She will bring more clout with her than you and others give her credit for.

 

She has vast resources and the most coordinated and largest political network that exists in this country. She has great respect from her colleagues.

The people you are talking about coming into the party are welcome. They don't get to decide the election over a majority of the voters nor should they. They are welcome to join the party and have a voice. Join a local democratic club. Work for local democrats. Join groups that lobby and share important similarities.

On top of that I believe she has the best policy positions after O'Malley left the race.

This is how your revolution ends: the starry eyed idealism has failed, the optimism has turned into bitter recriminations, and here you are demanding that everyone owes you an explanation why the grand idea fell apart. But here's the thing, no one can ever give you what you think you want.

61. the alarms are sounding

as the real dynamics of a Hillary vs Trump race are emerging:

...This is a problem not just because it decreases public trust; it also treats voters like they must be incredibly stupid. Itís brazenly insulting to peopleís intelligence to simply deny that a report says what it says. And because people are more intelligent than that, they donít like it when you try to pull tricks like this.

That fatal flaw means that Clinton is in terrible trouble. As this publication has explained in detail before, Clinton suffers from the fact that her weaknesses are those that Donald Trump is well-positioned to exploit. Trump is uniquely strong against Clinton, and Clinton is uniquely weak against Trump. One core problem is that nobody ever seems to go from disliking Clinton to liking her, while plenty of people seem to go from disliking Trump to liking Trump.

so isn't so much that she thinks we can't sort out what is going on, more that she and Bill actually love proving their power to themselves.

There is a story that Hillary tells about an early date with Bill. They crossed a picket line and got a favor from someone in power to go into a museum that was closed due to a Union dispute and they had the whole place to themselves and loved THAT. There is an aspect of 'we're powerful and naughty, look how much we can get away with' that they share and find romantic and intoxicating.

This private server use, against policy and advice, is likely because of nefarious dealings to pad the Foundation's bottom line, to bankroll her POTUS bid and avoid scrutiny.

I'd say the answer to that if fucking obvious. I live among adults and artists, not school kids and clergy. The word 'fuck' is just a word, not a bomb. I do not understand such affectations of sensitivity about words out of people are so willing to invoke images of violence. You paint a picture of explosive destruction in response to hearing the word 'fuck'. To me, that's a 'cake or death' sort of question. 'Fuck or bomb?' I go with fuck, each and every time. You go with bomb. You find that word less offensive and to me that's peculiar thinking.

If you are unfamiliar with the reasons why myself and others support her, then you haven't been paying very much attention or you're being willfully ignorant. As I have already stated, your post is just a rehash of many others which of course I am familiar with because I have been paying attention. From a Sanders supporters point of view this statement could very well apply to you in regards to the candidates.

96. Voters nominated her

3 million more of them and growing. Those voters are who you have a problem with. But ultimately it doesn't really matter what you think about it because your vote isn't worth any more than any other American's, and ultimately that is what Bernie and his supporters resent more than anything. "Progressives" can rail against the Democratic majority of people of color, women, elderly, disabled, and Democrats across the nation all they want. Voters still determine the outcome of elections.

Hundreds of thousands of energized people don't win an election or even a nomination. That takes hundreds of millions for the GE and tens of millions for the nomination. Sanders has proved that his revolution is nothing but a campaign slogan. He trails Clinton by a wide margin, and it has been clear since March 15 that he lost. Clinton has turned out millions of voters. She has organized volunteers across the country to work on GOTV efforts. The reasons Bernie lost are many but among them is that although he outspent Clinton 2-1, he refused to devote resources to organizing, which is why his CA field director quit. What kind of revolutionary spends well over $100 million on ads in corporate media outlets yet underfunds organizing? I suspect the answer to that may be found by following the money trail through Old Towne Media.

So sorry Bernie couldn't buy the hearts and minds of American voters. It must suck for Bernie supporters so convinced of their inherent superiority to know that lowly Democrats actually mattered in voting for the party's nominee and that those voters chose not to buy the bill of goods marketed to them to the tune of $200 million dollars.

I can imagine HRC would be willing to do certain things for TPTB to keep herself protected right now. Unfortunately, I believe she could be willing to do quite a bit of damage to the poor, working class, and middle class in order to keep herself protected (perhaps even more than I already envision her capable of doing), and I can completely envision backroom deals being made where she promises to do certain things that the financial elite want to have done (to further enrich and empower themselves while simultaneously hurting and disempowering average citizens).

It is a shame I feel this way about our most likely nominee, but I do not trust HRC. And, I trust her less with all of the investigations swirling around her.

148. The people who back Clinton (and Bush) want an end to American democracy.

 

Not the rank-and-file supporters, of course, but the power brokers who fund her campaign and her personal pocketbook.

They hate democracy and the limits that it puts on their power and wealth.



So if they country goes down the shithole, that's exactly what they want.

154. I'm more interested in

 

What the State Dept. considers classifiable. Hillary's emails concerning her support for the coup in Honduras, for example, which were on her private server but excluded from the public release. She has a lot to answer for in the violence that followed the ouster of Zelaya, particularly the murder of Berta Caceres and other activists. And her promotion of the attack on Libya, her ongoing support for broader intervention in Syria, continuing support for confrontation with Iran and cozying up to Netanyahu all reveal the direction she would take internationally. Not the sort of policy stances that would ease the mind.

159. US State Department is the top cabinet position, not arm of the intel community. So you're incorrect

to say that she "laid bare" stuff that fucks over the intel community. Big Time?? Please.

Control is the obsession of the 19 intel agencies. You're talking about a deep state that wants the public always and forever in the dark about secures or endangers their security and freedoms.

The FBI, doing its routine check of outgoing SoSs, has a whole different mentality that's anti-civilian and would like to have tighter control over all areas of state.

But the FBI can't. It can't even get the president to be reactive to its rule-bound jumping up and down issues right now. And that's as it should be.

I'm a Berner but even I can see how this is just doubt peddling. I know all the good reasons to nominate Hillary, but I'll leave it to dedicated campaign people to tell you.

176. New information learned from this OP...

Trump is having a effect on American grammar and vocabulary!!!

How else to explain 10 "fucks" and clauses like:
"I can understand the fuck them attitude, I have a case of it myself." and vocabulary like:
anyilhead, munchkinland, and pissant?

At any rate, to answer the specific questions:

When you add to that a fucking anvilhead cumulus hovering over the Hoover Building ready to spin off a political tornado the likes of which could land poor Dorothy in the Federal munchkinland in Kansas.
Really? You don't think that will happen?


No...I really don't think there will be a real or metaphorical storm of any kind. I think that Auntie Em, Dorothy, and Hillary will all survive!!

183. Yeah, that is a bit of a sentence fragment

It bothered me too, I should have a consequent clause like it's unfathomable or some shit like that. Thanks for pointing that out, my prose should eventually improve.

As to tRump affecting my vocabulary, what the fuck does that even mean? I'm Navy trained, you ever hear the idiom swears like a sailor? Fuck yeah, I thought you had. So fuck that notion twice on Sunday. Have you heard of the need for speed? well once in a while I'm in the mood for rude. Makes this shit look tame.

Oh and don't ever say you weren't warned. There's a hard motherfucking rain on the horizon complete with shit hail the size of Bill's Balls. I hope you got a 4WD vehicle.

On my ship, we don't "talk like a sailor". It's not respectful or efficient. If we sink, we're allowed one "oh shit" and that's it.

The email server will go on the list with Whitewater, Vince Foster, birth certificates, and UFOs...until Hillary is President and releases the UFO files.

Get their opinions on leaving a major communications stream belonging to the top diplomat unsecured? Both of your pals would understand the implications of an SAP breach.

200. Brock Brigade member here...

 

Our choices were Hillary or Sanders. Sanders has much more in his background that would make him a weak general election candidate. While liberal Democrats don't really care about his socialist background or this atheism, many, many middle Americans do care. Then put those things in the hands of the GOP ad machine...and add his plans to massively raise taxes, the fact that he never held a job before being mayor of some town in Vermont, his rape fantasy writings, pro-pot legalization stance and he quickly looks like a fringe liberal wacko.

The 'negatives' about Hillary have been largely disproven, and no one who seriously believes she even had an inkling about running for president in 2016 thinks that she purposefully did anything with her emails as SOS to harm that chance. Even if the FBI can prove that warning letters were sent to the SOS office, they cannot prove that Hillary saw those warnings.

Cha ching...another $200 in the bank...

213. So disheartening to think that the best the

Democratic Party can come up with is one of the most despised politicians in the country. A candidate who voted for the Iraq clusterfuck, supports fracking, gives speeches behind closed doors to crooks and then stonewalls revealing what she said. A candidate who didn't have the good sense to comply with government regulations regarding email correspondence as SOS and who remains the target of an FBI investigation. She's giving the Repukes a treasure trove of material to go after her with.

And we're expected to fall in line like a bunch of sheep and support this? If Trump wins in November, TPTB have no one to blame but themselves for putting up such a weak, truly awful candidate.

221. Because they love health insurance companies & the TPP

It makes perfect sense for people to pay expensive health insurance premiums for insurance with such a high deductible they can't afford to use it. So much better than a single-payer system with no premiums, no deductibles, and the ability to cut the cost of health care. It makes perfect sense to support another free trade deal since not enough American workers lost jobs overseas

232. You left out the one group of people who are actually giving the nomination to Hillary:

The American people.

She is winning the nomination because the voters of the Democratic Primary chose her over Bernie Sanders.

233. Excuse me, but what the f*ck are YOU thinking?

Do you think this is the old Soviet Union and the Politburo gets to choose who rules us?

Democratic VOTERS have spoken and their clear choice is Hillary. It's her large pledged delegate lead that will make her the nominee, this is not a coronation. Hillary will be the nominee because she earned it.

Why should the party nominate the losing candidate????

I blame Sanders and his two campaign strategists for this distorted view of the nominating process. The losing candidate does NOT get the nomination, no matter if he and his supporters rail at the skies. The mere suggestion is so undemocratic that it would really cause a revolt.

There are millions of people who voted for Hillary and their vote is just as valuable as that of Millenials. Do some of you think that if the super delegates lost their collective minds and nominated Sanders, that Hillary's supporters would be lemmings and quietly go to the polls in November???? You people want to see a "messy" convention? Just try that strategy.

Of all the undemocratic bull crap one reads on this site.........
