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.

New Hanpshire Democrat Town Hall 2/3/16: Hillary Clinton Defends Her $675,000 from Goldman Sachs for Speaking Events … Then Says She Never Knew She Was Going to Run For President

THE LIES CONTINUE FROM HILLARY CLINTON …

At A Democrat Town Hall hosted by CNN from Derry, New Hampshire on February 3, 2016 Hillary Clinton continued her outlandish lies in defending why she accepted $675,000 from Goldman Sachs for speaking events. When asked, she just laughed it off and said that is what they offered. Hillary then said, that’s  normal for a former Secretary of State to give paid speeches. Hmm, really?

Wow, to Anderson Cooper’s credit they followed up and stated, “but that’s when they are out of office and usually not running for anything anymore.” Hillary Clinton then followed with the lie of the night. She actually had the audacity to say that she did not know whether she was going to run for president. PLEASE, SPARE US THE BS!!! Hillary Clinton’s entire life has been to run for president. When she lost to Obama, she was further driven to run for president. When she took the job as Secretary of State it was to help her in a 2016 run for president. And when she had her emails on a private server and wiped the server clean, it was to hide any incriminating information that would prevent her from running for president. Hillary Clinton is a complete liar. It is comments like this where she simply is incapable of telling the truth why no one trusts her.

Yeah, Hillary is a progressive all right. This is why Sanders is questioning whether Hillary Clinton is a real progressive. As Bernie Sanders stated, “I do not know any progressive that has a super PAC and takes $15 million from Wall Street. That’s just not progressive.”

The Hill:

Speaking at CNN’s Democratic presidential forum, anchor Anderson Cooper pressed Clinton on whether it had been a mistake for her to reel in more than $200,000 per speech for three speeches to the Wall Street giant.

“Look, I made speeches to lots of groups. I told them what I thought. I answered questions,” Clinton said.

“But did you have to be paid $675,000?,” Cooper asked.

“Well I don’t know,” Clinton responded. “That’s what they offered.”

The crowd burst into laughter as Clinton explained that “every secretary of State I know has done that.”

Cooper shot back that usually the secretary of State is not preparing to run for president.

“To be honest I wasn’t committed to running,” Clinton said. “I didn’t know whether I would run or not.”

Hillary Clinton Iowa Caucus Victory Speech, Feb. 1, 2016 … What the Hell Was Up With Sticker Kid? (VIDEO)

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered remarks at her Iowa caucus night party in Des Moines. I know from watching this VIDEO below that this woman can never become president or this country is finished. Was it me or did Hillary seem a bit hostile and angry during her speech? Of course I guess she had a right to seeing that she squandered a +50 point lead and won the Democrat Iowa caucus on the back of 6 coin flips.

But it was the ‘sticker kid’ who stole the show from Hillary Clinton’s Iowa speech. Thankfully, the Drake University student Peter Clinkscales was there to provide comic relief so we could focus on something other than the shrill stylings of Hillary Clinton.

“I saw that a presidential candidate was going to be at my university and I thought that I should go see that presidential candidate at my university,” Clinkscales, who’s still undecided about who he’s supporting in the presidential election, told Mashable early Tuesday morning.

With stickers hanging for dear life to his face, Clinkscales made some crazy mouth contortions.

Talk about your bad nights for Hillary Clinton. First she gets shown up by a socialist in Bernie Standers who basically tied her in Iowa and then during her so-called victory speech, Hillary is shown up by “sticker boy.” LOL!!!

District of Columbia Bill Would Pay People Stipends Not to Commit Crimes

ARE YOU KIDDING, WE ARE NOW PAYING CRIMINALS NOT TO COMMIT CRIMES?

District of Columbia Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie is the Democrat who wrote the legislation that would pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. UNREAL, but this is what you get for liberal logic. Tax payers are supposed to redistribute their money and give it to individuals so they don’t commit crimes. Just curious, what happens if some one receives the stipend and does actually commit a crimes, do we get a refund? Why is it that liberals think using other peoples money and just throwing dollars at issues solves the problem?

Next up, paying kids to go to school, paying people not to speed, paying men not to abuse their wives, paying child molesters not not to commit crimes against the helpless and maybe even paying terrorists not to wage jihad. What do you think libs?

WTF

They say crime doesn’t pay, but that might not be entirely true in the District of Columbia as lawmakers look for ways to discourage people from becoming repeat offenders.

The D.C. Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a bill that includes a proposal to pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. It’s based on a program in Richmond, California, that advocates say has contributed to deep reductions in crime there.

Under the bill, city officials would identify up to 200 people a year who are considered at risk of either committing or becoming victims of violent crime. Those people would be directed to participate in behavioral therapy and other programs. If they fulfill those obligations and stay out of trouble, they would be paid.

The bill doesn’t specify the value of the stipends, but participants in the California program receive up to $9,000 per year.

[...]

Richmond experienced a 77 percent drop in homicides between 2007, when the program was launched, and 2014, although how much can be specifically attributed to the stipends is unclear.

The proposal in Washington has generated scant debate as lawmakers have focused on other crime-fighting tools included in the bill. Longtime civic activist Dorothy Brizill was the only person to testify against the stipend program at a lengthy hearing last fall, saying it would waste taxpayer dollars.

 

Was the Correct Winner Called in Iowa for the Democrats Between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders?

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?

Feel the Bern

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:

Clinton: 700.59

Sanders: 696.82.

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.

Simply Amazing … Socialist Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in a Dead Heat in Democrat Iowa Caucus

NAIL-BITER FOR DEMOCRATS IN IOWA …

In April of 2014 Hillary Clinton had a 58 point lead over Bernie Sanders. But with 91% of the vote in, it is a 50% to 50% race between Clinton and Sanders. UNREAL. What does it tell us about Hillary Clinton and the Democrat party in general. How does a 74 year old, self-proclaimed socialist like Bernie Sanders actually make a race of it against Clinton?

Iowa Caucus DEM

Below is the final tally of the RCP average polling which one cam plainly see that Sanders over-perfomed by 6.1% and Hillary did so by 2.1%.

UPDATE I: Little Separates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in Tight Race in Iowa.

The close vote means that Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders are likely to split

Iowa’s share of delegates to the Democratic convention, and Mr. Sanders will be able to argue that the Iowa result was a virtual tie.

The Clinton team was counting on its huge, well-trained army of volunteers, covering all of Iowa’s 1,681 voting precincts, to counter the enormous enthusiasm of voters who jammed into events to hear Mr. Sanders. But his well-financed Iowa organization was able to convert the energy of his crowds into voters on Monday night, as he drew huge numbers of first-time caucusgoers, young people and liberals who responded to his rallying cry against the nation’s “rigged economy.”

The virtual tie between the two candidates instantly raised the stakes for their next face-off, the primary next Tuesday in New Hampshire. Mr. Sanders holds a solid lead in polls there and has the advantage of being from Vermont; candidates from neighboring states have won the state’s primary in recent decades, and Mr. Sanders is admired in the state.

Martin O’Malley Suspends Presidential Bid After Poor Showing in Iowa Caucus

Democrat O’Malley Suspends his campaign … Did he ever have one to begin with?

Following a poor showing in last night’s Iowa Caucuses, Democrat Martin O’Malley suspended his campaign and dropped out of the race. One might ask whether he ever had a campaign as in the Iowa Caucus he managed to under-perform his 3% polling. One has to wonder how a former mayor of Baltimore, MD, with all that has recently gone on there, could have ever been considered a viable candidate. Obviously, he wasn’t.

He’s out!

Martin_O'Malley

Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley announced the suspension of his presidential campaign Monday night, following a dismal showing in the Iowa caucuses that effectively ended his long-simmering White House ambitions.

O’Malley, who had started laying the groundwork for a presidential bid following his 2010 reelection as governor, was lagging far behind former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. With 90 percent of precincts reporting, O’Malley registered support from less than 1 percent of caucus-goers.

“I want to thank everyone who came out to our events and lent me their ear and everyone who went out to caucus for me tonight,” O’Malley told supporters as he announced his decision.

CNN Democrat Town Hall Question Proved to be a Fraud, Planted Question to Hillary Clinton … “I can see why they gave you this.”

CNN – DEMOCRAT PARTY TOWN HALL FRAUD …

There is a reason why CNN is called the Clinton News Network and the MSM is called the Democrat-Media complex. One has to look no farther than the recent CNN Town Hall in Iowa where you can plainly see and hear for yourself that Hillary Clinton was asked a planted question. One of Hillary Clinton’s final questions was from a young student named Brett Rosengren where he said prior to actually asking the question, “I can see why they gave you this.” THEY! WHO IS THEY?

Obviously, this was a planted question. Sorry LIBS, as much as you want to try and defend the obvious, you were busted!!! So it makes you wonder how many of the other questions were the same and did the candidates know them in advance to prepare their answers. Kind of defeats the purpose of a Town Hall.

CNN/WMUR Poll: Socialist Bernie Sanders Trouncing Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire

THIS IS INSANE … A SOCIALIST IS DESTROYING HILLARY CLINTON IN NEW HAMPSHIRE ...

According to the most recent CNN/WMUR poll, Bernie Sanders, a self-proclaimed socialist, leads Hillary Clinton by a whopping 27 points in New Hampshire, 60% to 33%. Holy Cow!!! Are you kidding? Sorry, but Trump may not be the story in the 2016 race, but instead Sanders. It may be the Democrats who are scrambling for a last second candidate for president if Sanders keeps this momentum up. Is it possible that Clinton has a better shot of beating Trump than Sanders? That’s what a recent Monmouth poll says. Think about what that says about Democrat primary voters. Just how far LEFT have Democrats gone and how damaged a candidate is Hillary Clinton?

FEEL THE BERN!!!

Bernie Sanders2

Bernie Sanders’ lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire is on the rise, with the Vermont senator leading the former secretary of state by 27 points, 60% to 33%, a new CNN/WMUR poll has found.

The new poll, mostly conducted before Sunday night’s debate, found Sanders’ support has grown by 10 points since a late-November/early December CNN/WMUR poll, which found Sanders holding 50% to Clinton’s 40%.

New Hampshire Democrats’ views on the race are solidifying as well, with 52% saying they have definitely decided who they will support, up from 36% who felt that way in early December. Among those voters, Sanders holds an even broader 64% to 35% lead.

2016 Democrat Primaries: Hillary Clinton’s Lead Over Socialist Bernie Sanders Nearly Gone in Iowa and New Hampshire

HOW IN THE HELL IS THIS POSSIBLE, HILLARY DOES REALIZE THAT SANDERS IS IN THE RACE NOT TO WIN, RIGHT?

Democrat front runner and presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton has seen her poll numbers crater as she feels the Bern. With just a few weeks to go before the primary voting season begins in Iowa and New Hampshire, self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has closed the gap and taken the lead in some polls. Is it actually possible that Sanders could beat Hillary in the first caucus and primary states of the Democrat primary? At one point Hillary was up by more than 30 points, now she finds herself in a nail biter. Honestly, how is this possible? Hillary was all but given the Democrat party nomination as no viable candidate challenged her. Except for a Socialist from Vermont. Two questions come to mind, what the hell has happened to the Democrat party and just how bad a candidate is Hillary Clinton? Didn’t we see this same thing happen when a complete unknown named Barack Obama handed her a sever defeat in 2008? Feel the Bern as Bernie Sanders opined at the Iowa Brown & Black Forum in Des Moines, Iowa Monday night …  “It could be that the inevitable candidate for the Democratic nomination may not be so inevitable today.”

Feel the Bern

The Democratic presidential race is tightening just weeks before the Iowa caucuses, renewing the sense among some Democrats that Bernie Sanders could sweep the first two voting states and challenge Hillary Clinton over the long haul.

New polling data released over the weekend shows close races in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two states to vote.

After weeks in which it appeared that Clinton had pulled away in Iowa, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll found the Vermont senator within 3 points of the front-runner there.

“It’s been tight in Iowa the whole time, even if the polls didn’t always show it,” said Sam Roecker, a Democratic strategist in Iowa not affiliated with either candidate. “Both campaigns have strong ground operations and have been putting in the time here. It was always going to be close.”

Meanwhile, the same poll found Sanders maintaining a 4-point lead over the former secretary of State in New Hampshire. In both surveys, the candidates are close enough that the results are within the margin of error.

Clinton campaign aides say they always expected the polls to tighten and that the race would be competitive until the end.

“Yes, it’s a bit of a nail-biter,” one Clinton ally acknowledged. “But we always knew it was going to be tight and down to the wire. That’s not surprising.”

Hillary Clinton in serious poll trouble:

With just 21 days until the presidential primaries officially begin in Iowa, Hillary Clinton’s support among Democrats nationally has taken a serious tumble, falling eight points to 43%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. Support for her chief rival, Bernie Sanders, rose six points to 39%.

As a result, Clinton’s lead over Sanders, which had been 18 points, is now just four points.
