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
David Dayen
Mar. 2 2016, 11:58 a.m.
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.


"We Must & Can Aim High": Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich on Endorsing Bernie Sanders

"What worries me about other candidates, particularly Hillary Clinton, is that the message seems to be we cannot aim high, or we must not be ambitious, we must not try to be bold, because we can’t get there. That, to me, is exactly the wrong message"

He makes a great point


Hillary Clinton’s shameful charge to a children’s charity

"Hillary Clinton says, “Success isn’t measured by how much the wealthiest Americans have, but by how many children climb out of poverty.” So why did she charge an exorbitant speaking fee to a charity that helps poor kids?

Fine, she sent the cash to another “nonprofit” — the family’s $2 billion foundation. But Condi Rice, another ex-secretary of state, gave her own (much lower) fee from the same outfit — the Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach, Calif. — back to the charity."

If Hillary is this cold to the kids and the organization. Then the little people in this country are gonna be in for a rude awakening if she wins

"Oh, and the woman who says she “has spent my life fighting for children, families and our country” gave her speech and left “without visiting any of the club’s facilities to meet the children who benefit from its services,” Politico reports."


Bernie Sanders: Don't go for 'half loaf' policies

"That’s Bernie Sanders' new response to detractors who say he’s “thinking too big” and his plans are unrealistic. Sanders went on the offensive against incrementalism Sunday night at a Fort Collins, Colo., rally, saying that when you run on a platform calling for a full loaf, “at worst you’re going to get a half loaf.”
But if you ask for a half loaf, “you’re gonna get crumbs.”
Sanders said Americans don’t need crumbs. “They need the whole loaf.”"

I think this line is brilliant
