Rome is Berning!

I just love it. The optics are great, and the US media cannot and said they will not ignore this.

And, CNN just reported that Hillary will be away longer in CA, than Bernie will be away in Rome!!!

All the chatter of Bernie abandoning his campaign when it's time for NY. Utter bullshit from Hillary supporters once again. They were so busy finding out if he really was invited, who invited him, if he was really speaking, 'he's not, so it's a waste of his time', he is speaking but for only ten minutes, (how long is Hillary speaking?), he'll have jet lag, is the campaign paying for the flight, if not how can he go? He's a senator and can afford a ticket! Anyway, on and on, and now we learn Hillary will be away from NY longer than Bernie!

What's her supporters to do?

Wolf Blitzer was the loser last night, he could not/would not control the debate.

Do we really need a button to cut the mics? That would be rude.

How many times did Hillary talk over her time? How many times did she cut into, interrupt Bernie on his time? How many times did the moderators tell her her time was up and to stop, and she did not?
How many times did Bernie have to wave at them, to hold her accountable for not following the rules, again, cutting into his time.

When Bernie had enough, he kept on with his speaking while she began to talk over him, and kept talking. Then Wolfy had to do something, cuz you could not hear two people at once. So when they STOPPED ALL conversation to get the debate back on track....they asked BERNIE to please continue, and for Hillary to allow him to answer.

Hillary was absolutely the rudest she could have been, participating in a contest. She.....was absolutely horrible last night. Fucking awful.

Just my two cents...but all the video shows it, and the spin isn't fixing her image from last night. Internals are bad again this morning, before Bernie spoke at the Vatican. Hillary is a really bad sport, and doesn't follow the rules. But I don't fault her, Wolf Blitzer had a job to do, and he is the one that failed. Did he allow her to continue to break timing rules on purpose? Or is he just that big of a failure?

New PPP Poll of NY - Bernie closing the gap

He is closer at this time, than he was before MI.

New PPP Poll of NY: HRC: 51% BS: 40%
All the NY Polls seem to be about the same HRC up 11-16 points:

On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton's leading with 51% to 40% for Bernie Sanders. Clinton benefits from more committed support than Sanders- 88% of her voters say they'll definitely cast their ballots for her, compared to 71% of Sanders backers who say the same. All the normal splits present themselves in New York. Clinton is dominant with women (57/34), but trails slightly with men (47/44). The race is close among white voters- a 47/43 Clinton lead- while she has much more emphatic advantages with Hispanics (66/28) and African Americans (61/32). Sanders is ahead with younger voters (56/40), but Clinton's up by even more with seniors (63/27). Clinton's lead is widest in New York City (55/38), followed by the suburbs (51/40), and the race is effectively tied upstate (47/44).


What is the difference between Hillary's transcripts and Bernie's IRS taxes?

The transcripts involve the shaping of U.S. policy, affecting everyone in the country who pays taxes and invests.

Bernie's tax returns do not.

These similar actions by Hillary, the emails, the transcripts, the noise machine...

Mean one thing. Secrets. Campaigns cannot be about secrets.

Imagine Bernie Sanders setting up a white noise machine. Imagine if you can....it's actually hard to imagine him doing that.

Her lies? Bosnia sniper fire? All of this, is not a winning campaign.

It just isn't.

Why Hillary's footdragging on releasing the TRANSCRIPTS is concerning

Simply because, it's being talked about around the world!!!

Her emails along with the transcripts show, she is one of the least transparent politicians ever.

That, is why it is so concerning.

The IRS has Bernie's taxes....don't you worry about that. Again, the IRS has the Sanders taxes over the years.

No one but secretive Hillary, has her transcripts.

Hillary, release them now. The people (less your supporters) demand it.

The Hillary group says we need to realize only the delegates matter.


Not the vote. Our vote doesn't matter....and they like that. Just read above how it's just fine, this is the way it is.

This is the democratic party? Hardly. We need a new one, and they sure are helping to usher one in, as messy as it will be healing.

Bill Clinton's pact with Newt Gingrich to Privatize OUR Social Security

Did You Know THIS? "The Pact: "Clinton, Gingrich, Bowles"

(How Many Knew This? ...I was too busy Defending Bill and Hillary against the RW CRAZIES to notice this at the time. I was new to the Internet and Clinton was MY and OTHERS...OBAMA!...I couldn't believe the Crap the RW Threw Against Him! I lost Friends defending him

NOW ....I'm Rethinking what I used to think about Clinton...when I was a Loyalist to him...)


How Monica Lewinsky Saved Social Security: Clinton, Gingrich, Bowles and “The Pact”

Please welcome Steven Gillon, author of The Pact: Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, and the Rivalry that Defined a Generation

Gillon writes:

In private conversations with Gingrich and with Texas Republican Bill Archer, powerful head of the House Ways and Means Committee, the president promised to “provide political cover” for Democrats and Republicans by announcing his support for raising the minimum age required for Social Security and for changing the COLA formula. The president was willing to oppose the leadership of his own party and support the Republican demand for private accounts.

According to Gingrich:

“I understood that I would have to fight some of my old guard,” Gingrich recalled. “He understood that he would have to fight his hard left. Together we could shape about a 60 to 65 percent majority. I was happy for him to be a successful president. He was comfortable with us being a successful Republican congress.”

It looked like they had a path to success. Clinton would take the heat from Democrats and work through “centrist” Democrats and Republicans, as he had when he passed NAFTA and welfare reform.

And then Monica Lewinsky broke into the headlines:

Politically, it forced Clinton to seek refuge in the liberal wing of his party, the same group he had agreed to abandon a few months earlier. “All opportunities for accomplishment were killed once the story came out,” reflected a senior White House official. “If we cut a deal with the Republicans on Social Security there was every possibility that the Democrats, who were the only people defending him in Congress against these charges, could easily get angry and abandon him.” With conservatives in an uproar, Gingrich lost his political wiggle room and was forced to appease his right-wing base. If Gingrich did not “feed the conservative beast,” recalled a colleague, he would have been removed from his job as Speaker.

As Erskine Bowles himself said, “Monica changed everything.”

Don't think Hillary will save it...

Yes, the Wyoming caucus for Hillary was sooooo awesome!

MSM and Hillary campaign continue to medicate themselves with spin.....

Pope Francis, Elton John turned down Clinton Foundation invites

and lots of other 'A' list'rs, talk about bad optics!

September 26, 2015, 10:51 am

By Bradford Richardson

A number of high-profile notables, including Elton John and Pope Francis, turned down invitations to attend the Clinton Foundation's upcoming event in New York, according to Politico.

The foundation tried to invite Pope Francis to its glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) gathering New York, and wanted to present British rock star Elton John with an award for his work to combat AIDS, but both figures declined the invitations.

The organization has been embroiled in controversies surrounding its fundraising initiatives, and the report suggests many celebrities are trying to distance themselves from the group.

Hillary Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, is also stepping back from the group as she runs for the White House.

“They’ve had a lot of rejections from people – both from membership renewals and speaking roles this year between the campaign, Hillary not being at CGI this year, bad press,” one person who has helped plan events for the organization told Politico.

Other important figures who turned down invitations to the event reportedly include Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who said he had a conflict, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who served as Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager during her successful 2000 U.S. Senate bid, and President Obama, who is skipping the event for the first time since taking office due to a busy schedule.

The foundation also wanted either Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen or French economist Thomas Piketty to deliver a presentation on income inequality, but both declined.

Picketty said his decision not to attend had nothing to do with his opinion of the Clintons.

“I’m not particularly a fan, but I am not a non-fan either,” the French economist wrote in an email, adding that he “preferred Hillary’s health plan to Obama’s.”

Foreign heads of state such as British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel also declined to attend the event.

Big names who have confirmed their attendance are actress Jessica Biel, philanthropist billionaire Bill Gates, and scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson, among others.
