EVER WONDER WHY HILLARY CLINTON IS STRUGGLING AGAINST A 74 YEAR OLD SOCIALIST?
WTF … Honestly, what kind of dirtbag tells women that if they don’t help Hillary Clinton, they will go to hell? Seriously, that is exactly what former Secretary of State and Hillary Clinton supporter stated at a rally for Clinton in Concord, NH. And has been feminist Gloria Steinem was not much better. However, this is what the old vile feminist movement is all about. As Doug Powers opines, “Hell hath no fury like a Hillary-supporting feminist scorned.”
Two over-the-hill feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling out young women who dare support the the views of Hillary Clinton’s Democrat opponent Bernie Sanders as their candidate to essentially grow up and get with the program. Albright said of those that would not support Hillary, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”
REALLY? No wonder Hillary Clinton loses all of those under the age of 30 to Bernie. Honestly, who would support this vile shrew who would laugh and yuck it up by such a disgusting comment?
Check out the comments from folks who have nothing good to say about either Albright or Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you.
Women were expected to help power Mrs. Clinton to the Democratic nomination, but as she struggles to overcome a tough challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, her support among them has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont, and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement.
Two feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling on young women who view Mr. Sanders as their candidate to essentially grow up and get with the program.
While introducing Mrs. Clinton at a rally in New Hampshire on Saturday, Madeleine Albright, the first female secretary of state, talked about the importance of electing the first female president. In a dig at the “revolution” that Mr. Sanders often speaks of, she said that the first female commander in chief would be a true revolution. And she scolded any woman who felt otherwise.
“We can tell our story of how we climbed the ladder, and a lot of you younger women think it’s done. It’s not done,” Ms. Albright said of the broader fight for women’s equality. “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”
Mrs. Clinton laughed, slowly clapped her hands and took a large sip of her beverage.
Super Bowl 50, Carolina Panthers – Denver Broncos is Finally Here … What are the Best and Worst NFL Franchises in Super Bowl History
Super Bowl 50 is finally upon us that matches the NFC champ Carolina Panthers vs. the AFC champ Denver Broncos. But what NFL franchises are considered the best and worst performers in the biggest game of the NFL season?
Who are the best NFL teams/franchises that consistently found themselves in the biggest game of the year and won it all or at least made a game of it when all thought it would be a blow out or loss?
1. San Francisco 49ers (6 appearances: 5-1). Although the 49ers have not won the big game since the 90′s, they reign among all with their near perfection in the Super Bowl.
Super Bowl XXIV San Francisco destroys Denver, 55 – 10
XVI January 24, 1982 San Francisco 49ers 26 Cincinnati Bengals 21
XIX January 20, 1985 San Francisco 49ers 38 Miami Dolphins 16
XXIII January 22, 1989 San Francisco 49ers 20 Cincinnati Bengals 16
XXIV January 28, 1990 San Francisco 49ers 55 Denver Broncos 10 [So much for that Joe Montana - John Elway match up ... Montana, the best ever!!!]
XXIX January 29, 1995 San Francisco 49ers 49 San Diego Chargers 26
XLVII February 3, 2013 Baltimore Ravens 34 San Francisco 49ers 31
2. Pittsburgh Steelers (8 appearances: 6-2). The Steelers have been to a record tying 8 Super Bowls and have a 6 wins and competed strongly in the ones they have lost. They have wins in the 1970′s with the famed Steel Curtain and victories in the 80′s, 90′s and 2000′s.
IX January 12, 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers 16 Minnesota Vikings 6
X January 18, 1976 Pittsburgh Steelers 21Dallas Cowboys 17

XLIII February 1, 2009 Pittsburgh Steelers 27 Arizona Cardinals 23
XLV February 6, 2011 Green Bay Packers 31 Pittsburgh Steelers 25
3. Dallas Cowboys (8 appearances: 5-3).
V January 17, 1971 Baltimore Colts 16 Dallas Cowboys 13 [Also known as the Blooper Bowl]
VI January 16, 1972 Dallas Cowboys 24 Miami Dolphins 3 [Only Super Bowl with a Defense to never give up a TD]
X January 18, 1976 Pittsburgh Steelers Dallas Cowboys 17 [Also, one of the truly great games of all times]
XII January 15, 1978 Dallas Cowboys 27 Denver Broncos 10
XIII January 21, 1979 Pittsburgh Steelers 35 Dallas Cowboys 31 [Still one of the greatest games ever played, but for a Jackie Smith TD drop, Dallas would have won]
XXVII January 31, 1993 Dallas Cowboys 52 Buffalo Bills 17 [Cowboys rout Bills and it wasn't even this close]
XXVIII January 30, 1994 Dallas Cowboys 30 Buffalo Bills 13
XXX January 28, 1996 Dallas Cowboys Pittsburgh Steelers 17 [Cowboys finally beat Steelers in a Super Bowl]
Tied at 4. The Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants (5 Appearances each and both have a 4-1 record)
Who are the worst NFL teams/franchises that consistently found themselves in the biggest game of the year and came up terribly short.
1. Buffalo Bills (4 appearance: 0-4): The Buffalo Bills found themselves in 4 straight Super Bowls in the early 1990′s where they progressively got hammered worse each year. Their only real chance to win a Super Bowl faded wide right when kicker Scott Norwood missed a potential game winning field goal in XXV.
XXV January 27, 1991 New York Giants 20 Buffalo Bills 19
XXVI January 26, 1992 Washington Redskins 37 Buffalo Bills 24 [The game was not even as close as the score as the Redskins built up a 37-10 lead and game was over]
XXVII January 31, 1993 Dallas Cowboys 52 Buffalo Bills 17 [It was more of a blow out that the score indicated, final score should have been 59-10]
XXVIII January 30, 1994 Dallas Cowboys 30 Buffalo Bills 13 [Bills folded like a cheap suit in the second half after a Thurmon Thomas fumble and Cowboys ran it down their throats]
2. Denver (8 appearance: 2-5, 1 TBD) The Denver Broncos are making their 8th Super Bowl appearance today; however, other than two games at the end of John Elway’s career, the final game of the season has been nothing but a blow out and disaster for the Broncos. The Denver Broncos were the original Bill’s losing 4 Super Bowls and none of them were close. The Broncos are rated # 2 even though they have won 2 Super Bowls because they have lost a record 5 of them and in some cases by historic margins. Sorry, but Denver’s losses to the Giants, Redskins and especially 49ers and Seattle were nothing but embarrassing.
XII January 15, 1978 Dallas Cowboys 27 Denver Broncos 10 [Orange Crush crushed by Dallas' Doomsday defense]
XXI January 25, 1987 New York Giants 39 Denver Broncos 20 [Giant's QB shreds Denver, 22-25 passing]
XXII January 31, 1988 Washington Redskins 42 Denver Broncos 10 [Redskin's QB Doug Williams rips Denver D for 35 points in second quarter]
XXIV January 28, 1990 San Francisco 49ers 55 Denver Broncos 10 [Joe Montana shreds Denver D and John Elway]
XXXII January 25, 1998 Denver Broncos 31 Green Bay Packers 24
XXXIII January 31, 1999 Denver Broncos 34 Atlanta Falcons 19
XLVIII February 2, 2014 Seattle Seahawks 43 Denver Broncos 8 [The game was over 7 seconds into the game when Peyton Manning wilted under the big game pressure]
3. Minnesota Vikings: (4 appearances: 0-4) The only thing that saves the Vikings from finishing higher is that they have not been in a Super Bowl since the 1970′s. The Vikings just never really showed up for any of the games.
IV January 11, 1970 Kansas City Chiefs 23 Minnesota Vikings 7 [This was over from the outset and the famed NFL films of KC coach Hank Stram and 65 toss power trap]
VIII January 13, 1974 Miami Dolphins 24 Minnesota Vikings 7

QUESTIONS LEADING INTO NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY … WILL HILLARY FEEL THE “BERN” AND WILL TRUMP REALLY WILL BY SUCH A WIDE MARGIN?
According to the 7 News/UMass Lowell NH tracking poll, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have bog leads heading into next Tuesday’s, February 9, 2016 New Hampshire Presidential primary. Self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton by double digits, 55% to 41%. The question becomes, will Sanders actually destroy the establishment presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary be such a wide margin Tuesday night? Will a socialist hand Hillary Clinton her lunch? According to the RCP average polling, the above tracking poll is pretty much in line. It would appear that the 74 year old socialist is poised to win a 14 to 15 percent victory over the Clinton machine in New Hampshire.
Our tracking poll shows both races settling down. Bernie Sanders is now beating Hillary Clinton 55 percent to 41 percent, his support holding steady. Clinton gained a point overnight, edging slightly closer. The tracking poll shows Clinton is still gaining on Sanders, but the pace of her rise has slowed and Sanders leveled off after three days of big drops.
“There’s a big gender gap in the Democratic race,” said Dr. Joshua Dyck, UMass Lowell pollster. “Sanders leads by more than 30 percent among men, but just 2% among women. A big change from earlier this week.”
As for the Republican party, Trump appears to have a commanding lead at 35% following by a pack of 4 individuals from 14% to 10% that include, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and John Kasich. However, one has to wonder if Rubio’s poor performance in last nights debate and strong performances by governors Christie and Bush might cause some last minute movement by the electorate? It’s hard to believe that Bush and Kasich have actually gained points but NH has become increasingly liberal these days. The real question heading into the NH Primaries is, will Trump over or under perform his polling, who will come in second and third and will Rubio’s terrible debate performance cost him and stop any momentum he might have had?
Among the Republicans, Donald Trump stays number one, with 35 percent; and picked up a point. Marco Rubio, at 14 percent, lost a point, but keeps second place. Ted Cruz, at 13 percent, also lost a point, but did not lose third place. The biggest GOP changes: John Kasich and Jeb Bush. Both have broken into double digits after both picked up two points overnight.
There were also some changes in the bottom tier. Chris Christie is at four percent, after losing a point since Friday. Ben Carson, three percent after losing one. And no change for Carly Fiorina, who also gets three percent.
GOP New Hampshire Debate 2/6/16: Christie to Rubio … “Being Senator Does Not Prepare You for President of the United States”
IT WAS NOT A GOOD NIGHT FOR RUBIO AS CHRISTIE HAMMERED HIM OVER AND OVER …
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was in rare form last night as he blasted the new found darling of the GOP establishment candidate Marco Rubio with justified attack after attack. Christie hit Rubio with the label of the Washington establishment insider by saying the following, “that’s what Washington D.C., does. The drive-by shot…and then the memorized 25-second speech that is exactly what his advisers gave him.”
The Washington Free Beacon opines, a Rattled Rubio Survives New Hampshire Debate, But will he be ready for the next battle? I am not so sure of that. Marco Rubio crumbled under the pressure of being the top dog and being the focus of the attack. Christie did a political hit on him last night in the debate that Tony Soprano would have been proud of. Rubio did not help himself by making matters worse as he obviously became flummoxed. Rubio better learn to do a lot better, because last night was a disaster.
You see, everybody, I want the people at home to think about this. That’s what Washington, D.C. Does. The drive-by shot at the beginning with incorrect and incomplete information and then the memorized 25-second speech that is exactly what his advisers gave him.
See Marco — Marco, the thing is this. When you’re president of the United States, when you’re a governor of a state, the memorized 30-second speech where you talk about how great America is at the end of it doesn’t solve one problem for one person. They expect you to plow the snow. They expect you to get the schools open. And when the worst natural disaster in your state’s history hits you, they expect you to rebuild their state, which is what I’ve done.
None of that stuff happens on the floor of the United States Senate. It’s a fine job, I’m glad you ran for it, but it does not prepare you for president of the United States
GOP New Hamphire Debate 2/6/16: OUCH, Gov. Christie Destroys Sen. Rubio on Lack of Leadership Comparing to Obama … “Do not make the same mistake” (VIDEO)
NEW JERSEY GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE DESTROYED MARCO RUBIO LAST NIGHT ON LACK OF LEADERSHIP …
During last nights debate on ABC News ahead of Monday’s 2016 New Hampshire primaries, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a once man wrecking crew and laid waste to the new found darling establishment candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio. Christie lambasted Rubio on being ill prepared to be president of the United States. Christie stated that being a Senator does not prepare one to be president, whereas when one is a governor, they need to make decisions that impact the people who elected them and are held accountable for those decisions.
Check out the look Rubio gave Christie during this exchange
Things got started when Rubio was asked to respond to Christie’s allegation that, after experiencing the presidency of Barack Obama, who was elected as a first-term U.S. senator, it would be especially unfortunate if the Republican Party were itself to nominate Marco Rubio, a first term U.S. senator, for the White House. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me,” Christie had said (bettering his former benefactor, George).
Rubio’s comeback was pretty good, if a little obvious in its intent: He argued that experience was overrated; if it mattered, Vice President Joe Biden would be a good candidate for commander-in-chief. He then argued that an unspoken premise of the criticism — that Obama has failed in part due to his inexperience — is faulty. Obama knows exactly what he’s doing, Rubio said. The president is not a fool; he’s a menace.
Christie wasn’t having it, dismissing Rubio’s Biden straw man and recommitting to his initial attack. Rubio’s a nice guy, a smart guy, Christie said; but the simple fact is that he’s never had to make an important decision. This got a noticeable round of applause from the audience. And perhaps that’s why Rubio then proceeded to self-destruct.
Christie stated with regards to Rubio, “you have not been involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable, you just simply haven’t.” Christie followed up with, “the fact is, when you talk about the Hezbollah sanctions act that you list as one of your accomplishments, you weren’t even there to vote for it.” Then Christie crushed Rubio with the fact that he didn’t even show to vote with … “that’s not leadership, that’s truancy”.
Christie then did the most damning thing he could do to Rubio, compared the Florida senator to the 1st term 2008 Sen. Barack Obama and his lack of experience for the job and what that has gotten us. Christie provided the following backhanded compliment, “I like Marco Rubio and he’s a smart person and a good guy. But he simply does not have the experience to be president of the United States and make these decisions. We have watched it happen everybody for the last 7 years. The people of New Hampshire are smart, do not make the same mistake again.” OUCH!!!
Police Open Criminal Investigation into a domestic Violence Assault Complaint Against Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel
WHO DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING … THE FALL OF THE SPOILED HEAD CASE JOHNNY FOOTBALL.
I never could understand why Johnny Manziel was selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns, not only because he did not have the talent and size to be an NFL quarterback, but he also lacked the self control and maturity to be one. After all of his previous nonsense, childish behavior and so-called rehab, now Johnny Football finds himself in the cross-hairs of a domestic violence investigation by Dallas police. Manziel is accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, in an incident last Saturday that started at a downtown Dallas hotel. Initially, it appeared that Johnny Manziel was not going to face charges. Now it appears he will. Look for the Cleveland Browns also to release Manziel as they have had enough.
How sad is it that tomorrow is Super Bowl 50 and this no-talent is taking up the sporting news. You know you are a total screw up when you have Charlie Sheen giving you advice … WINNING, not.
Dallas police announced Friday night they are launching a criminal investigation into a domestic violence assault complaint filed against Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.
The move comes a day after police said they had closed an investigation into allegations that Manziel had hit his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, in an incident last Saturday that started at a downtown Dallas hotel, and that he would not face charges.
Police said in a release that they received an assault complaint Friday for a Jan. 30 incident, and Manziel was listed as the suspect. It is not uncommon for the victim of domestic violence “to question or delay reporting an assault,” police said.
“This is an ongoing investigation and updates will be made as information becomes available,” the release stated.
Crowley released a statement to WFAA, the ABC affiliate in Dallas, on Friday night.
“On Feb. 5, I met with domestic violence specialists at the Dallas Police Department,” she said. “I provided them with a complete description of the events on the night of January 29th and answered their questions. I don’t know what will happen next with this case — that’ll be up to the Dallas Police Department. I am hopeful that everyone will understandably respect my wish for privacy at this time.”
Johnny Manziel’s father: QB twice refused to enter rehab facilities in the last week.
Johnny Manziel’s family is concerned for his well-being as his NFL career and personal life falter, but the quarterback has twice declined to be admitted to area rehabilitation facilities in the last week, according to his father, Paul Manziel.
“I truly believe if they can’t get him help, he won’t live to see his 24th birthday,” Paul Manziel told The Dallas Morning News.
On Friday, Manziel’s agent Erik Burkhardt also voiced concern for Manziel, 23, and announced that he is terminating their professional relationship.
Remember when Johnny Manziel stated, he was not going to change he he was? I guess that was truly the case, because Manziel is nothing more than an idiot. Soon he will find himself on the outside of the NFL looking in.
FUNERAL CRASHER: Wife Noela Rukundo Crashes Her Own Funeral, Much to Husband’s Surprise, Who Had Paid to Have Her Killed … Balenga Kalala, Ultimately Pleaded Guilty & Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison
REAL LIFE FUNERAL CRASHERS, WHERE’S WILL FERRELL …
Noela Rukundo, an Australian woman, returned to her native Africa to travel to Burundi to attend her attend her stepmother’s funeral when she was abducted by a gang of men. They had been ordered by her husband of 10 years to kill her. The amazing part, she was spared by the hitmen with principles. Hmm, I guess there is sometimes honor among thieves. After having kidnapped her, the men said, they weren’t going to kill her, they didn’t believe in killing women. Instead, they called the husband and told him the job was done. According to Australia’s The Age newspaper, two days later, they set her free on the side of a road, but not before giving her a cellphone, recordings of their phone conversations with Kalala, and receipts for the $7,000 in Australian dollars they allegedly received in payment.
Noela Rukundo was presumed dead by her partner and their entire community who held a funeral in her home in Melbourne, Australia, in her memory early last year. Much to all of their surprise, after all of the mourners had left, she approached her former love who was under the impression that his wife was not only dead, but that he had got away with his murderous plan. That’s when she approached him and replied, “Surprise! I’m still alive!” Her husband looked like he’d seen a ghost. Eventually, her husband, Balenga Kalala, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 9 years in prison.
Balenga Kalala, who arrived in Australia in 2004 as a refugee, paid almost $7,000 to a group of kidnappers to kill the mother of his three children, Noela Rukundo, when she was attending her stepmother’s funeral in Burundi in early 2015.
The group snatched Ms Rukundo at gunpoint outside her hotel in Bujumbura in February and drove her to a secret location.
Finally, she spotted the man she’d been waiting for. She stepped out of her car, and her husband put his hands on his head in horror.
“Is it my eyes?” she recalled him saying. “Is it a ghost?”
“Surprise! I’m still alive!” she replied.
Far from being elated, the man looked terrified. Five days earlier, he had ordered a team of hit men to kill Rukundo, his partner of 10 years. And they did — well, they told him they did. They even got him to pay an extra few thousand dollars for carrying out the crime.
Now here was his wife, standing before him. In an interview with the BBC on Thursday, Rukundo recalled how he touched her shoulder to find it unnervingly solid. He jumped. Then he started screaming.
“I’m sorry for everything,” he wailed.
But it was far too late for apologies; Rukundo called the police. The husband, Balenga Kalala, ultimately pleaded guilty and was sentenced to nine years in prison for incitement to murder, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corp. (the ABC).
Quinnipiac University Poll: Hillary Clinton Now Bearly Ahead of Bernie Sanders & in National Poll, 44% to 42%
HILLARY CLINTON FEELS THE BERN, THE SOCIALIST SANDERS HAS CAUGHT HILLARY IN THE LATEST QUINNIPIAC POLL …
According to the latest national Quinnipiac poll tracking poll, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders are now in a statistical dead heat. Hillary Clinton garners 44% of the vote, Bernie Sanders 42%, while 11% remains undecided. You can rest assure that of that undecided vote, Hillary will get little to none as she is the most none and recognizable, establishment candidate for the Democrats. This is an amazing set of circumstances as Sanders has erased a 52 point Clinton lead from previous Quinnipiac poll from April 2015. Whats devastating to Clinton is her overall favorable/unfavorable is 39%/56%, while Independents are at 39%/55& and women a surprising 47%/49%. Meanwhile Sanders has a favorable/unfavorable rating of 44%/35% and better numbers with Independents and woman than Hillary.
This Democrat primary was supposed to be a cake walk for Hillary as there was no real alternative for the Democrats stepped up to the plate. Now Hillary Clinton finds herself in a dog fight with a socialist. This is not your grandfather’s or father’s Democrat Party anymore. Hell, this is not even Bill Clinton’s Democrat party.
Democrats Feel the Bern!!!
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton are running even in a new national poll tracking support for the Democratic presidential race.
Clinton garnered 44% to Sanders’ 42%, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Friday. A sizeable 11% say they are undecided.
The poll appears to signal a dramatic tightening of the Democratic race following Clinton’s razor-thin victory over Sanders in the Iowa caucuses.
The Quinnipiac poll is one of the first national surveys released since the Iowa results, so it is important to note it could represent statistical noise — trends won’t be clear until more national polling emerges.
National polls conducted before the Iowa caucuses showed the Democratic race tightening, but with Clinton still leading Sanders by double digits. CNN’s own national Poll of Polls from just before Iowa found Clinton at 53%, Sanders at 36% and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at 2%.
The real question is not the cat fighting that the MSM, including FOX News, likes to promote on the GOP side between candidates and the irrelevant circus and side show antics that create ratings, the real story is just how unelectable is Hillary Clinton for Democrats and will a Socialist actually win the presidential nomination for the Democrat party. If that does happen, if there are any Reagan or blue color Democrats left in the party, it may be time to change party affiliation.
SADLY, ANOTHER MUSIC GIANT HAS PASSED AWAY …
Maurice White, singer and co-founder of the legendary band Earth, Wind and Fire has died at age 74. White died in Los Angeles, CA after battling Parkinson’s disease since 1992. The band had so many great hits, including “Shining Star,” “September,” “Boogie Wonderland,” “Got To Get You into My Life,” and “After the Love has Gone.” Sadly Maurice White has passed; however, the sounds of Earth, Wind and Fire will live on forever. Easily EW&F are one of my top 50 bands of all-time. Maurice White, Rest in Peace.
Earth, Wind and Fire vocalist and co-founder Maurice White died in his sleep in Los Angeles on Wednesday evening. A rep for the band confirmed his passing to Rolling Stone. He was 74.
The singer had been battling Parkinson’s disease since 1992, according to TMZ. His health had reportedly deteriorated in recent months. Because of the disease, he had not toured with the pioneering soul and R&B group since 1994. He nevertheless remained active on the business side of the group.
“My brother, hero and best friend Maurice White passed away peacefully last night in his sleep,” White’s brother and bandmate Verdine wrote in a statement. “While the world has lost another great musician and legend, our family asks that our privacy is respected as we start what will be a very difficult and life changing transition in our lives. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes.”
“The light is he, shining on you and me,” the band added on Twitter.
White, who formed the group with Verdine in 1969, helped innovate a lush, eclectic style with Earth, Wind and Fire that drew inspiration from funk, jazz, R&B and Latin music – as well as Sly Stone and James Brown – for a unique sound that set the tone for soul music in the Seventies. The springy, elastic soul-pop of “Shining Star,” which White co-wrote, earned them their first Number One, and paved the way for hits like the joyful “Sing a Song,” the percussive and brassy “September,” their swinging cover of the Beatles’ “Got to Get You Into My Life” and the robotic disco of “Let’s Groove.” Rolling Stone included the group’s sweetly smooth 1975 single, “That’s the Way of the World,” on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
White — who died Thursday (Feb. 4) at age 74 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease — formed the band in 1969, after a tenure as the drummer in the Ramsey Lewis Trio and a short run with his own band, the Salty Peppers. White was EWF’s visionary and conceptualizer, its chief songwriter and producer, as well as the focal point of one of the tightest, hottest-stepping frontlines in pop music.
Over time, White nurtured his younger brother, bassist Verdine White, and singer Philip Bailey as EWF leaders as well, taking over day-to-day operations when he trimmed back his role. But White remained a presence and guiding light in EWF’s world, and back in mid-January — when EWF’s Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award honor was announced — Verdine White and Philip Bailey reflected on his vision and legacy to Billboard:
Democrat Primary Debate Ahead of NH Primary … Sanders and Clinton Take the Gloves Off, Kinda … Polls Show Sanders Way Ahead
WHEN DEMOCRATA ATTACK EACH OTHER …
As reported at The Politico, Clinton and Sanders just had the election’s most explosive exchange to date. Not that is saying a lot as the two candidates have been been in more or less of a kumbaya, love-fest until recently when Sanders actually realized he might be able to defeat Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders calls Hillary Clinton the “establishment” candidate and she loses it. Guess what Hillary … you are the definition of establishment and the Washington political elite.
“Sen. Sanders is the only person who would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment. And I’ve got to tell you, it is really quite amusing to me,” Clinton said. “People support me because they know me, they know my life’s work, they have worked with me and many have also worked with Sen. Sanders. And at the end of the day, they’ve endorsed me because they know I can get things done.”
Watch the VIDEO below where Hillary Clinton loses her mind and goes all “Shillary” on Bernie Sanders and the crowds negative reaction. It is just amazing to believe that Bernie Sanders is so far out ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire.
After a string of debates where Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders discussed (and occasionally disagreed about) the fine points of progressive policy, the two finally had a full-fledged throwdown Thursday night.
Clinton accused Sanders of going negative on the campaign trail, telling the Vermont Senator at the Democratic debate that his campaign was smearing her name.
“I think it’s time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent week,” Clinton said after Sanders talked about getting money out of politics.
Sanders, You cant be a moderate and a Progressive
Sanders has boasted about not receiving money from Wall street, and has pointed out in recent weeks that Clinton has received large sums in exchange for speaking.
“Sen. Sanders has said he wants to run a positive campaign. I’ve tried to keep my disagreements over issues, but time and time again, by innuendo and by insinuation there is this attack that he is putting forth,” Clinton said.
“Which really comes down to anyone who ever took donations or speaking fees from interest groups has to be bought, and I absolutely reject that Senator. I really don’t think those attacks by insinuation are worthy of you,” Clinton continued.

NBC News/Wall Street/Marist poll: Sanders Leads Clinton by 20 Points in New Hampshire.
Bernie Sanders maintains a significant double-digit lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, according to an NBC News/Wall Street/Marist poll conducted after Clinton’s narrow apparent win in Monday’s Iowa caucuses.
Sanders gets the support of 58 percent of likely Democratic primary voters, while Clinton gets 38 percent — essentially unchanged from last week’s NBC/WSJ/Marist poll, which showed Sanders ahead by a 57 percent-to-38 percent margin in the Granite State.
