After Losing Rigged Democrat Primary to Hillary Clinton … Bernie Sanders Vows to Fight on to the Philedalphia Convention
Hillary Clinton may have won the rigged Democrat primary that saw both the Democrat political establishment (super delegates) and the liberal MSMback her, however, it is socialist Bernie Sanders that has the energy behind him. Bernie found out just how rigged the primary process truly is was the AP called the nomination for Hillary Clinton before the California primary based on super delegates. UNREAL. Sanders vowed last night to his supporters to take their fight on to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Democrat National Convention. One thing I can see Bernie pushing for at the convention is an end to super delegates in the Democrat nomination process that is nothing more than a rigged system that gives the appearance the people are nominating the candidate.
“Next Tuesday we continue the fight. We are going to fight hard to win the primary in Washington, D.C., and then we take our fight for social, economic, racial and environmental justice to Philadelphia.”
So which party is it again that seems to have complete division again? Bernie Sander captured more primaries and caucuses than anyone could have ever imagined. Will Sanders supporters vote for Hillary? Or will they look elsewhere or stay home? Sanders’ campaign was a social movement, not a political campaign. Those that invested that much emotional capital would find it hard to just cast a vote for the other guy or gal.
Despite a night of disappointing losses, Bernie Sanders vowed Tuesday night to continue his campaign and to take his fight all the way to the convention in Philadelphia.While Hillary Clinton secured the delegates she needed Monday to become the presumptive presidential nominee, Sanders channeled the defiance of his supporters as he took the stage shortly before 11 p.m. PT.
The crowd was on edge — angry with the press and worried that he would give in to the growing pressure from Democratic leaders to bow out of the race.
But it wasn’t long before it became clear from his remarks that his “movement” — a campaign that has given Clinton more of a fight than anyone predicted and forced the
Democratic Party to the left — would carry on, at least through the final primary next Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
“All of you know that when we began this campaign over a year ago we were considered to be a fringe campaign. Over the last year I think that has changed a little bit,” he said as the crowd thundered with approval.
Hmm, and the MSM tried to paint the GOP races as the circus, it really looks like that belongs to the Democrat party …
The Des Moines Register writes, Iowa’s nightmare revisited: Was correct winner called? The worst thing happened Monday night for the Democrat party and that is the nightmare scenario played out live and in color, a tie between the establishment candidate Hillary Clinton and the self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. Making matters worse, the vote was so close that there is no way to ever know who really won because there is always some form of voter fraud of miscounting inherent in any vote. The division seems to be great among Democrats as the Sanders supporters chanted, “She’s a liar.” Hmm, that’s something you will not heat or see reported by the MSM, there is only turmoil among the GOP. The nightmare gets worse for Hillary and the establishment Democrat party, how is it possible that Hillary Clinton and her all-powerful team, the ultra-establishment candidate failed to win over Iowa caucus goers and lost a +50 point lead in Iowa to a 74 year old socialist candidate in Bernie Sanders?
It’s Iowa’s nightmare scenario revisited: An extraordinarily close count in the Iowa caucuses — and reports of chaos in precincts, website glitches and coin flips to decide county delegates — are raising questions about accuracy of the count and winner.
This time it’s the Democrats, not the Republicans.
Even as Hillary Clinton trumpeted her Iowa win in New Hampshire on Tuesday, aides for Bernie Sanders said the eyelash-thin margin raised questions and called for a review. The chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party rejected that notion, saying the results are final.
At 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Andy McGuire announced that Clinton had eked out a slim victory, based on results from 1,682 of 1,683 precincts.
Voters from the final missing Democratic precinct tracked down party officials Tuesday morning to report their results. Sanders won that precinct, Des Moines precinct No. 42, by two delegate equivalents over Clinton.
The Iowa Democratic Party said the updated final tally of delegate equivalents for all the precincts statewide was:
That’s a 3.77-count margin between Clinton, the powerful establishment favorite who early on in the Democratic race was expected to win in a virtual coronation, and Sanders, a democratic socialist who few in Iowa knew much about a year ago.
Can you imagine what Tuesday must have been like to be a part of Team Clinton? In 2008, the presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton lost to a candidate that no one had really heard from before by the name of Barack Obama. Now in 2016, Clinton stands once again as the overwhelming presumptive Democrat nominee and faces a real challenge from a 74 year old socialist who was never supposed to be much of a factor, let alone have a chance to win.
Thank you. Iowa, thank you. Nine months ago, we came to this beautiful state. We had no political organization; we had no money; no name recognition. And we were taking on the most powerful political organization in the United States of America.
And tonight while the results are still not known, it looks like we are in a virtual tie.
And while the results are still not complete, it looks like we’ll have half of the Iowa delegates. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Secretary Clinton, somebody — yep — and her organization for waging a very vigorous campaign.
And I want to thank Governor O’Malley. It’s never easy to lose. I’ve lost more than one campaign. But he should know that he contributed a whole lot to the dialogue, that he ran an issue-oriented campaign, and he won the respect of the American people. … If I think about what happened tonight, I think the people of Iowa have sent a very profound message to the political establishment, to the economic establishment, and, by the way, to the media establishment.
ARE YOU KIDDING … SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS LEADS HILLARY CLINTON BY 9 IN NEW HAMPSHIRE …
According to the most recent NBC News/Marist poll, self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders has a 11 point lead over Hillary Clinton. That is not a typo folks, a socialist now is the front runner in the Granite state for the Democrat nominee for president. Just two months ago Hillary was up by double digits over Sanders. The more and more Clinton pours money in politics ads into NH, the more she sinks. Just how embarrassing will it be for the Democrat party, if a socialist is their nominee?
Bernie Sanders has jumped out to a nine-point lead over front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, and he’s gained ground on her among Iowa voters in the Democratic presidential race, according to a pair of brand-new NBC News/Marist polls.
In New Hampshire, the Vermont senator gets the support of 41 percent of Democratic voters, Clinton gets 32 percent and Vice President Joe Biden gets 16 percent. No other Democratic candidate receives more than 1 percent.
Barack Obama Chief Strategist David Axelrod Says Hillary Clinton ‘Wasn’t a Very Good Candidate’ in 2007
BARACK OBAMA POLITICAL STRATEGIST SAYS HILLARY CLINTON WAS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE IN 2007 …
David Axelrod, Barack Obama chief strategist during his first run for president, said that Hillary Clinton “was not a very good candidate” in 2007 during the Democratic presidential nomination. Some one seems to be poking the bear. This is one of the few times I might actually agree with Axelrod. Obama’s top strategist is saying that because Hillary had a sense of entitlement and was the sure bet to win the Democrat nomination for president in 2007, she made no effort to campaign or tell people why she should be president.
So what has changed now, but what difference does it make?
David Axelrod on Thursday jabbed at Hillary Clinton, saying that she wasn’t a very strong candidate during the first part of her campaign for the 2008 presidential nomination.
The chief strategist for Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign said that Clinton, who lost to Obama in the Democratic primary that year, was too cautious during the early stages, when she was considered the prohibitive favorite.
Axelrod also said that Clinton failed to provide a convincing rationale for her candidacy in her unsuccessful bid, echoing a criticism he made in November. “In 2007, the mistake they made was they allowed the candidacy to get out ahead of the rationale for it,” he said of Clinton’s team.
“It wasn’t clear what the campaign was about. And I think campaigns have to be about something,” Axelrod added.
Axelrod stated, Clinton failed to provide a convincing rationale for her candidacy in her unsuccessful bid. Flash-forward to 2015, what has changed for Hillary Clinton? Why should she be any better candidate now? Once again it seems that the powers that be want to coronate Hillary Clinton the Democrat nominee for the 2016 presidential elections. Recent polls show that Hillary is far and away the Democrat party front-runner. But will that be her undoing like in 2007? Or will it be all the political baggage? Or will it be that the Democrat LEFT is even further left than Hillary?
RUT-ROH … DSCC Pulls TV Advertising for Democrat Senate Challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes … VIDEO of Grimes – McConnell Senate Debate
Democrats waiving white flag in Kentucky Senate race …
Bad news for Democrats ahead of 2014 elections, the TV ads go dark from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for Kentucky Democrat Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has had a consistent lead in the polls and seems to be pulling away at the end, even after the DSCC has spent millions in ads. Put a fork in her, Grimes is done. In their Senate debate, challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes once again refused to answer the simple question of whether she voted for Barack Obama or not. She claimed her lack of a response was based on principle. I think we all know it was based on politics as Obama is very unpopular in the Blue Grass state and lost 60% to 38% to Romney in the 2012 presidential election.
After a significant investment in support of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the DSCC had not reserved time for the final three weeks of the race and, as of today, is no longer on the air.
DSCC Goes Dark in Kentucky
“The DSCC has now spent more than 2 million in Kentucky and continues to make targeted investments in the ground game while monitoring the race for future investments, but is currently not on the air in the state,” a DSCC official told CQ Roll Call.
Democrats pulled their TV advertising in Kentucky from now through election day, leaving Senate hopeful Alison Lundergan Grimes without air support from the national party, which had invested heavily in trying to unseat the Senate’s top Republican.
It’s a sign of how stretched Democrats are in defending their own turf across the country that they can no longer afford to go on offense in the marquee race against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
But Grimes sources insist they’ll be fine on their own. The campaign, sources said, is flush with $4.4 million cash on hand — much more than other Democrats on the ballot this year.
“Money is not an issue in this campaign,” a Grimes source said.
Note to Grimes, yes money is the only thing in a campaign when you are the challenger and the Democrats have claimed they have more than the GOP and plan to carpet-bomb the airwaves with political ads.
