Democrat Primary: Bernie Sander Wallops Hillary Clinton in Oregon, Virtual Tie in Kentucky … Sanders Continues Party Divison (VIDEO)
BERNIE SANDERS JUST WILL NOT GO AWAY …
With the Republican primary all but over and a forgone conclusion, the focus shifts to the Democrat primary and Hillary Clinton’s inability to close the deal. Last night self proclaimed socialist and what we refer to as a Marxist, Bernie Sanders, defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Oregon primary 53% to 47%. Sanders’ victory was his 21st of the election cycle and his 11th in the past 17 contests. In Kentucky, the race was a virtual tie, with Clinton winning in the end by the narrowest of margins. The only reason why she won was because this was a closed primary. Had independents been allowed to vote, Hillary would have easily lost Kentucky.
Bernie Sanders mini-winning streak ended Tuesday night in Kentucky, a state analysts expected he could win.
The loss could take some wind out of supporters’ sails at a critical time as they face increasing pressure to unify the Democratic Party behind likely nominee Hillary Clinton.
But it was a mixed night for the candidates. Sanders pulled out a comfortable single-digit win in Oregon, where he is likely to walk away with a solid block of delegates.
The outcome will have negligible impact on either candidate’s path to the nomination, thanks to Democrats’ proportional delegate allocation system.
The MSM tries to portray the GOP as the party of disarray and contention; however, we can plainly see that honor really belongs to the Democrat party. Bernie Sanders will not go away and in fact his crowds seems to be getting larger and more vocal.
BERNIE SANDERS SPLITS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY
MAYBE BERNIE SUPPORTERS CAN GET YOUR FREE COLLEGE AT BURLINGTON COLLEGE, IF IT HADN’T COLLAPSED UNDER A “CRUSHING WEIGHT OF DEBT” …
You just can’t make this stuff up. Burlington College plans to shut its doors later this month due to the “crushing weight of debt” it amassed when Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders, served as the the school’s president. What a microcosm of socialism and Bernie Sanders’ world views. Imagine that, a college is forced to close its door as it collapses under a mountain of debt. Note to millennials … money and the economics matters. Take a good look what will happen to America under liberal ideology. But of course in typical liberal values, Jane Sanders, who took over the school in 2004, resigned in 2011, and ran the school into the ground also managed to secure a $200,000 severance deal.
The school plans to cease operations by May 27,2016. The school was founded in 1972, utopia has failed. Liberalism once again causes job loss.
Vermont’s private Burlington College announced Monday it was shuttering its doors later this month because of a “crushing weight of debt” amassed under Bernie Sanders’ wife who formerly served as the school’s president.
Jane Sanders ran the liberal arts college for seven years, taking out a $10 million loan in 2010 on the school’s behalf to purchase 32 acres of lakefront property in an attempt to draw donations.
The plan ultimately fell through, placing the school under irreversible financial stress. Burlington’s Board of Trustees voted last week to halt the school’s programs May 27, the Burlington Free Press reported.

HEY HILLARY … ITS ALL ABOUT THE COAL. CLINTON FEELS THE COAL BERN!!!
Coal country is no longer Clinton country as Hillary Clinton found herself getting her miners hat handed to her by socialist Bernie Sanders in the Democrat West Virginia primary. When the dust steeled Sanders beat Clinton 51% to 36%, a much wider victory than polls had indicated. What a turn of events for Hillary Clinton. In the 2008 Democrat primary, Clinton beat Obama in WV, 67% to 23% and got over 240,000 votes. Flash-forward to 2016 and Hillary received a mere 84,000 votes.
Not so fast Hillary in pivoting to the general election, you still have a socialist on your tail who has now won a remarkable 19 states. It is safe to say that Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democrat nominee, who is limping over the finish line, has no chance of victory in the general election in West Virginia. On the GOP side, Trump wins in WV and Nebraska as he ran unopposed.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has won the West Virginia Democratic primary, NBC News projects, a victory that will add yet more fuel to his argument that he should remain in the race despite badly trailing front runner Hillary Clinton in the overall delegate count.
The win comes one week after Sanders prevailed in Indiana’s Democratic primary and two weeks after Clinton dominated a series of contests in the northeastern United States.
Democrats also voted on Tuesday in a presidential “beauty contest” in Nebraska, although the delegates from that state were all previously assigned during a March 5 caucus. In that contest, Sanders won 15 pledged delegates, compared to 10 for Clinton.
“With this outcome, we now have won primaries and caucuses in 19 states,” Sanders said in a statement after the results were in. “We are in this campaign to win the Democratic nomination and we’re going to stay in the race until the last vote is cast.”
It is hard to believe that Bernie Sanders continues to make political life difficult for Hillary Clinton. An unknown, 74 year old socialist is showing just how weak a candidate Hillary Clinton really is. No one, and I mean no one, including Democrat strategists saw this coming. Not even Bernie Sanders.
US ACTIVE MILITARY PREFERS TRUMP OVER HILLARY BY 2 TO 1 MARGIN …
In a new poll of active American military personnel, Donald Trump leads by a wide margin to become the next Commander in Chief. The survey of active-duty service members chose Trump over Clinton by a 54% to 25% margin. In fact, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders, who has no chance of winning the Democrat primary because of a rigged establishment super delegate process, does better than Clinton in this poll. Interestingly enough as the Daily Caller points out, criticism from the GOP foreign policy establishment pointing out Trump’s inexperience in the field has done little to dissuade active-duty service members from throwing their support behind the real estate tycoon.
In a new survey of American military personnel, Donald Trump emerged as active-duty service members’ preference to become the next U.S. president, topping Hillary Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin. However, in the latest Military Times election survey, more than one in five troops said they’d rather not vote in November if they have to choose between just those two candidates.
But given only those choices, 21 percent of the service members surveyed said they would abstain from voting. More than 54 percent of the 951 troops Military Times surveyed said they would vote for Trump, the presumed Republican presidential nominee, over Clinton, the Democratic front-runner. Only about 25 percent said they would vote for Clinton in that matchup.
Democrats overwhelmingly favored Clinton (72 percent to 8 percent) and Republicans overwhelmingly supported Trump (82 percent to 6 percent). Troops who identified as independents slightly favored Trump, by a 40 percent to 32 percent margin.
Female troops favored Clinton over Trump, by a 51 percent to 24 percent margin. Male troops backed Trump over Clinton 57 percent to 22 percent.
Officers were more likely to back Clinton, though still said they’d vote for Trump by a 46 percent to 32 percent tally. Enlisted respondents broke 58 percent to 21 percent for Trump.
- Now the question is who Trump’s VP pick might be. Would Rubio make a good VP?

HILLARY FEELS THE BERN AGAIN AS SANDERS UPSETS HILLARY CLINTON IN THE HOOSIER STATE …
A funny thing has happened on the way to Hillary Clinton’s Democrat presidential coronation, she continues to lose to a socialist. Last night self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Indiana primary 52% to 48%. WOW, that’s going to leave a mark. Not so fast Ms. Clinton, let’s forget about looking to the general election just quite yet, you have a socialist on your tail. Sanders shocked Clinton last night defeating her by 4 percentage points as all of the polls leading up to the Indiana primary had Clinton leading between a margin of 4 and 13 percent.
The longer the Democrat primary goes on and more embarrassing losses for Clinton, the more divisive the Democrat party will become.
Hillary Feels the Bern in Indiana
Bernie Sanders upset Hillary Clinton in Indiana’s Democratic primary Tuesday night, giving his flagging campaign another reason to carry on to Philadelphia even though he has virtually no chance of overtaking Clinton for the nomination.
With more than three-quarters of precincts reporting, Sanders led 53 percent to 47 percent.
The win bolstered Sanders’ pledge to remain in the race through the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia despite trailing in the overall and pledged delegate counts. Because Indiana allocates delegates proportionally, though, it will produce more of a psychic boost for Sanders and his supporters than an actual dent in Clinton’s lead.
The calendar for the rest of May portends favorably for Sanders, as well, with West Virginia up next on May 10, followed by Kentucky and Oregon on May 17.
Prior to the Indiana primaries according to RCP polling, Clinton led Sanders 50% to 43%.
Up next for the Democrats is West Virginia where Clinton looks to get politically whacked by Sanders. But that is what happens when you tell coal miners you are looking to shut down the companies they work for. Heading into the the final weeks of the campaign Hillary Clinton hardly looks like a strong candidate as the presumptive Democrat nominee limps access the finish line.
Who would have thought at this point, certainly not the bias MSM, that it would be the Republican primary that was over and had a presidential nominee and the Democrats would still be duking it out. Go Bernie, Go!!!
TED CRUZ SUSPENDS CAMPAIGN …
Following tonight’s overwhelming primary loss in Indiana to Donald Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has ended his 2016 Presidential bid. Honestly, Cruz had no other alternative after the drubbing tonight in Indiana. The hand writing was on the wall and Cruz did the honorable thing and suspended his campaign. In his concession speech Cruz told supporters, “Together we left it all on the field in Indiana.” Cruz went on to say, “We gave it everything we’ve got. But the voters chose another path.” Cruz further went on to say that we was suspending his campaign but would “continue to fight for liberty”.
Ted Cruz bowed out of the Republican presidential race Tuesday following a crushing loss to Donald Trump in Indiana, clearing the path for the real estate mogul to clinch the GOP nomination.
It was a remarkable turn of events in a presidential primary race that seemed destined — just weeks ago — to end in a contested convention this summer. Even in the final hours of the race in the Hoosier State, Cruz insisted he was staying in the race until June 7 — going so far as to attack his rival during a news conference as a “pathological liar” unfit for the White House.
In the end, the growing strength of Trump’s candidacy and Cruz’s own stumbles in the past two weeks were too much for Cruz to overcome. The Cruz, Kasich and anti-Trump forces had concocted elaborate plans to try to deprive Trump of the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the nomination outright. But those plans hinged on money and momentum. After Tuesday night, it appeared that Cruz would have neither.
“We left it all on the field in Indiana. We gave it everything we’ve got but the voters chose another path,” Cruz said. “So with a heavy heart but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign.”
IT MIGHT BE ONE OF THE GREATEST CON JOBS SINCE THE 2008 ELECTION AND OBAMACARE …
As per Gallup, it would appear like the bottom has fallen out of the Ted Cruz GOP primary candidacy. As the all-important Indiana primary takes place today, it would seem that Republicans’ views of Cruz are now the worst in Gallup’s history of tracking the Texas senator. His image has nose-dived as his favorables have gone down and his unfavorables have risen. I guess there is only so much an individual can withstand when they are constantly called a liar and the main stream media, including FOX News, is against you. It looks like this race is over.
What do you think the MSM is going to do after Donald Trump wins the GOP presidential nomination? The liberal MSM is licking their chops with the opposition researcxh they have been saving to destroy Trump and help Hillary Clinton win the presidency.
Ted Cruz — attempting to hold on to the narrowing possibility that he can wrest the GOP nomination away from front-runner Donald Trump — faces a crucial Indiana primary on Tuesday. Meanwhile, and perhaps ominously for Cruz, he has run into headwinds among Republicans at the national level. His image has essentially nosedived over the past week or two, while Trump’s image has become more positive.
Republicans’ views of Cruz are now the worst in Gallup’s history of tracking the Texas senator. His image among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents is at 39% favorable and 45% unfavorable, based on April 24-30 interviewing, for a net favorable score of -6. The last few days have marked the first time we have seen Cruz’s image underwater since we began daily tracking in July.
Republicans consistently held much more positive than negative views of Cruz from last July through January of this year, but then their unfavorable ratings of him began to climb. After a holding period of sorts in March and early April, Cruz’s image began to deteriorate significantly in the last two weeks, with his positive and negative lines crossing in the middle of last week. His current -6 net favorable rating is a far cry from where it was in late December and early January when his net favorable was +48, some 54 points higher than today.
America, you had the chance to do the right thing back in 2012 and right the wrong of 2008. You failed, you reelected Barack Obama. In 2016, you had the chance to elect a conservative and reverse the direction of the past 8 years of Obama, and it appears that you have failed again.
On the eve of the critical contest, Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz closed their campaigns with familiar attacks.
Cruz presented himself as the one reliable conservative in the race and warned in an NBC News interview that Trump was “a big-government New York liberal” in the mold of Hillary Clinton who would sell out the right on issues like guns and abortion.
“Do we get behind a campaign that is based on yelling and screaming and cursing and insults?” he asked a crowd of several hundred at the state fairgrounds Monday night. “Or do we continue to unify behind a positive, optimistic, forward-looking conservative campaign?”
WOW, SO THIS IS WHAT A TRUMP SUPPORTER THINKS AND ACTS LIKE …
Ever wonder just what appeals to a Trump supporter? All you need to do is take a look at the exchange below between Ted Cruz and a Trump supporter in Indiana. UNREAL. All the Trump supporter had was sound bytes and insults. Hmm, sound familiar? Because that is all Donald Trump has too. Take a good listen to the rude, obnoxious and ignorant behavior of this Trumpist as he is presented with facts about The Donald and he dismisses them all, even though they are facts and not lies. But because Trump calls everyone else liars, his supporters believe only Donald can be telling the truth.
But I must say, I am a bit surprised at Cruz for actually trying a debate a true believer. Legal Insurrection is spot on when they refer to this Trump supporter similar to what Republicans went through in 2008 with Barack Obama. Remember, fact don’t matter in this election; they never do when cults of personality take hold as happened in 2008 with Obama. Cruz is 100% correct, Trump is playing you all as the fool.
What gets me is that FOX News, the Donald Trump super PAC is playing this video continuously like its a badge of honor.
Why Cruz would bother debating Trump fans, especially Trump fans who are heckling him, I don’t know. It’s like Hillary trying to turn Obama supporters with a few words on the rope line in 2008. That’s not the way cults of personality work and Cruz knows it. Jamie Weinstein thinks Cruz was going for some sort of viral confrontation on the eve of the vote, knowing that the media would end up giving his case here against Trump lots of free coverage tonight when they re-run this incident on the news. That seems too clever by half. Arguing with a Trumper, especially one who’s spoiling to get in Cruz’s face, was as likely to produce some sort of trainwreck scene of Trump fans chanting “GO BACK TO CANADA” as it was a long disquisition against Trump. I don’t think there’s anything more complex behind this than Cruz’s supreme confidence that he can out-debate anyone, even some dude in shades smirking at him and howling about his “Goldman Sachs jacket.” This is a guy who talked his way into a Senate seat at age 41 and who outlasted 15 other Republican presidential candidates in the primaries this year. If Donald won’t debate him, why shouldn’t he go toe-to-toe with a Trump fan for a few minutes? I think he missed an opportunity, though, in not trying harder to bait the guy. Imagine how much more viral this clip would have been if he had said, “So, what do you think we should do with the Muslims?”
Don’t we make fun of Hillary Clinton supporters when we ask them what are her qualifications to be president, what has she accomplished and what do you like about her? The above Trump supporter struggled when asked the same question and could only come up with Trump is going to build a wall. A note to Republican, Conservative and Independent voters, this is the same type of voter you condemned in 2008 and 2012 who voted for Obama.
