Bernie Sanders Says: ‘The Democrat Convention will be a Contested Contest’

SANDERS IS NOT TALKING ABOUT A GOP CONTESTED ELECTION CONVENTION, IT IS A DEMOCRAT ONE

Self-proclaimed Socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stated on Sunday that the Democrats would have a “contested contest.” Sanders stated that it is virtually impossible for Hillary Clinton to get the Democrat nomination with out the aid of super delegates. She cannot do it on pledged delegates alone. It looks like Sanders and his peeps will not be dropping out before the convention, which means there may just be much strife among Democrat voters just like how the MSM constantly reports the Republicans have.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Sunday said there will be a “contested contest.”

In a news conference from Washington, D.C., on Sunday, the Vermont senator urged superdelegates from states where he has won the majority of the vote to reconsider their support.

“It is virtually impossible for Secretary Clinton to reach the majority of convention delegates by June 14 with pledged delegates alone,” he said.

“She will need superdelegates to take her over the top. The convention will be a contested contest,” he said.

Sanders said during the news conference he expects to do well in the upcoming primaries. Indiana votes Tuesday, where a new poll shows Sanders trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton by 4 points.

Sanders goes after Hillary Clinton’s establishment fixing super delagates.

He said many of the super delegates committed themselves to his rival Hillary Clinton even before Sanders got into the race.

“While we have won 45 percent of the pledged delegates in real campaigns where the people have spoken … we have won only 7 percent of the superdelegates,” he said, contrasting the number of superdelegates he’s secured with how many Clinton has.

Ted Cruz Responds to Boehner’s Comments … ‘If You Want a President Like John Boehner, Donald Trump’s Your Man’ (VIDEO)

I WANT ALL REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES AND INDEPENDENTS TO REALLY LISTEN TO CRUZ’S COMMENTS BELOW …

In response to former establishment Republican Speaker of the House Boehner’s comments calling Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh,” Cruz responded in kind with some pretty thought provoking comments of his own. If you liked John Boehner as Speaker, if you want a John Boehner’s golfing and texting buddy as president, then Donald Trump is your guy. So who exactly is the political insider if they are Boehner’s golfing and texting buddy? Hmm?

“When John Boehner calls me ‘Lucifer,’ he’s not directing that at me, he’s directing that at you.”

Cruz, campaigning in Fort Wayne, Indiana ahead of the state’s May 3 primary, responded by saying Boehner was letting his “inner Trump come out” with his remarks. He attempted to turn the criticism into a slam on Trump.

“John Boehner in his remarks described Donald Trump as his texting and golfing buddy,” Cruz said. “So if you want someone that’s a texting and golfing buddy, if you’re happy with John Boehner as speaker of the House and you want a president like John Boehner, Donald Trump is your man.”

 

Former Establishment Republican Speaker John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the Flesh’ & a ‘Miserable Son of a Bitch’

JOHN BOEHNER IS THE EPITOME OF THE COUNTRY CLUB ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN WHO WE COULDN’T WAIT TO LEAVE OFFICE …

Hey Boehner, have another drink and a cry. Former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner called Sen. Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh’ and further went on to say Cruz was a ‘miserable son of a bitch’. Hmm, coming from the likes of Boehner, Cruz should wear these words with a badge of honor. Sorry America and especially my fellow Conservatives, I find Boehner and his crying pathetic self exactly what is wrong with the GOP. Boehner is the epitome of the country club establishment Republican who forgot along time ago what the GOP party platform stood for and that government was of, by and for the people.

I find it quite interesting that the poster child who Conservatives danced with glee when Boehner left office and is the face of the establishment GOP is actually “golfing and texting buddies” with Donald Trump. Flashback, the Gateway Pundit reported one last cry from Boehner. That should give many pause for concern. Many have stated that they are supporting Trump because he is a political outsider, really? Who do you think was buying politician’s influence? When Conservatives were battling Pelosi, Reid and Obama, Trump was donating to them. So Boehner, who openly hated the Conservative movement, condemns Cruz and loves Trump. WAKE THE HELL UP CONSERVATIVES, ADMIT YOU MADE A MISTAKE AND DO THE RIGHT THING.

So, Mr. Speaker, how do you really feel?

John Boehner, the famously blunt ex-House speaker, left no doubt he’s not a fan of fellow Republican Ted Cruz, leaping off the sidelines of the presidential race Wednesday night to unleash a stunning verbal lashing of the Texas senator, reportedly calling him “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.”

The longtime Ohio powerhouse had not been very outspoken on the race since retiring last year, but he held little back when asked about the Texas senator and underdog GOP presidential candidate during a forum at Stanford University.

“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life,” he said, according to The Stanford Daily.

He reportedly said he’s played golf with front-runner Donald Trump, describing them as “texting buddies,” and said his relationship with Ohio Gov. John Kasich “requires more effort” but they’re friends “and I love him.” He also said he’d vote for Trump in a general election – but not Cruz.

And yet another GOP insider and Republican who should be ashamed of himself, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) stated, “I fully agree with John Boehner, and maybe it gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz.” King accused Cruz of having “perpetrated a fraud and a hoax” with his push in 2013 to defund ObamaCare, which eventually led a government shutdown. Really, it was a fraud and hoax to try and to defund Obamacare? This was the very reason why Republicans were voted in majorities in the House and the Senate to do just that. Defunding and abolishing Obamacare is what the GOP ran on in 2010, 2012 and 2014 to do. And because the establishment Republicans did not do what they claimed they were going to do, in other words, lied to the very people who voted them into office, they establishment GOP finds itself with Donald Trump as their presumptive presidential nominee.

Hmm, it seems like all do not agree with Boehner and King, some Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord. Good grief.

Ted Cruz Names Carly Fiorina as VP Running Mate

 CRUZ NAMES FIORINO VP TO JUMP START HIS CAMPAIGN …

Yesterday Ted Cruz named Carly Fiorina to be his VP running mate in an effort to jump start his GOP primary presidential campaign. Cruz praising Fiorino, a former Republican presidential nominee, as a fierce competitor “not intimidated by bullies” who has “shattered glass ceilings” in both business and politics. One might think this was a strange move by Cruz to announce a VP candidate so soon, but hasn’t this entire primary season been nothing shore of different and bizarre? In the grand scope of the primary races on both the Republican and Democrat sides, this actually seems quite normal. But the real question remains, will this unorthodox move change the momentum in the GOP primary race from Trump to Cruz and the primary vote next Tuesday in Indiana?

VIDEO – NBC

Ted Cruz announced Wednesday that Carly Fiorina will be his vice presidential nominee if he’s the Republican Party’s pick for president.

If nominated, “I will run on a ticket with my vice-presidential nominee, Carly Fiorina,” the Texas senator said at an Indiana rally before the crowd began chanting “Carly.”

The two appeared together in an hour-long event in Indianapolis, with Cruz alternating between lauding Fiorina and maintaining that he has a path forward in the race despite suffering a series of losses over the last two weeks. Fiorina, who followed Cruz, shared stories about her own background and about Cruz, and even sang to his two young daughters from the stage, as she also railed against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

She delivered a wide-ranging speech on Wednesday that highlighted Cruz’s embrace of conservative principles and of the Constitution, but she also aimed to highlight a softer side of Cruz, describing time spent on the campaign bus with him and noting how much his daughters “adore their dad.” She sang several bars of a song to his daughters.

“I know two girls that I just adore,” Fiorina sang. “I’m so happy I can see them more. ‘Cause we travel on the bus all day…we get to play.”

Donald Trump Sweeps I95 Primaries (CT, DE, MD, PA, RI) … But Do You Know the Real Story of the Night?

WHO’S LYING TO YOU?

Donald Trump swept through the I95 primaries last night taking all five states, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. Is it just me, but since when do Conservatives like candidates who win in liberal blue states? Wouldn’t that generally be a RINO?

Primary_I95_2016_Trump

What Fox News will tell you, the suddenly recent cable channel turned Trump Super PAC, other media outlets and many what I thought was once Conservative bloggers that Trump had a HUGE night, his best ever and that all others should get out of the race. They will some how make it appear that winning liberal dark blue states in a GOP primary is a good thing. FOX News et all will talk about Trump getting to 60% and this is the most fantastic and awesome thing ever. REALLY? Just curious, has anyone taken a look at the vote count in the 5 primary states from Tuesday, April 26? Is anyone mentioning how both Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders amassed a blistering number of votes Tuesday night that towered far above The Donald? The delegates may be important for Trump winning the GOP presidential nomination, but the voting shows that Trump does not have a snowballs chance in hell of winning any one of these five states in a general election.

Folks, you need to take a look at the volume of votes cast in ct, DE, MD, PA and RI. Its not even close. Did The Donald win 5 of 5 states last night? Yes he did. But please don’t get lost in the spin and the BS put out by others, including FOX News and their Trump love-fest.

The math does not lie America, most notably Republicans and Conservatives. Honestly, who cares whether Trump won all 5 states in last nights primary, they are all dark blue or blue states where a Republican presidential candidate will never win in a general election. All it tells me is that Trump is the most liberal of the three remaining GOP candidates. That is hardly a badge of honor.

CT:     Donald Trump: 122,519 – John Kasich: 60,447 – Ted Cruz: 24,779 (Total # of votes: 207,745)

Daily Commentary – Wednesday, April 27, 2016 – The Race For the Republican Nomination Has Gotten Even Weirder

Fox News Poll: Donald Trump Leads Ted Cruz in Indiana, 41% to 33%

According to a FOX News poll ahead of the all important Indiana primary, Donald Trump leads by 8 points. According to the polls Trump has 41%, Ted Cruz is second with 33% and John Kasich is a distant third with 16%. Interestingly enough, without Kasich in the race, it’s 44 % for Trump and 42% for Cruz.Trump appears to lead among likely male and female voters over Cruz.

Full poll results can be found HERE.

Cruz_Trump_Kasich

Trump is ahead of Cruz by an eight-point margin among Indiana likely Republican primary voters:  41-33 percent.  That’s at the edge of the poll’s plus or minus four point margin of sampling error.  John Kasich comes in third with 16 percent.

Men are the key to Trump’s advantage.  He receives 44 percent to Cruz’s 33 percent, while Kasich takes 13 percent.

Among women, Trump ekes out a three-point edge (36-33 percent), while 20 percent back Kasich.

Cruz is preferred over Trump among self-described “very” conservative GOP primary voters (46-35 percent).

The vote among white evangelical Christians splits:  41 percent Cruz vs. 39 percent Trump.  This stands in sharp contrast to nearby Wisconsin, where the Fox News exit poll showed Cruz winning this group by a wide 22-point margin (55-33 percent).

Fox News Poll: Donald Trump widens lead in GOP Race, While Hillay Clinton – Bernie Sanders Race Tightens

IS IT ANY WONDER WHY TRUMP HAS WIDENED LEAD AS LATELY FOX NEWS HAS ACTED LIKE A TRUMP SUPER PAC …

According to a recent FOX News poll, Donald Trump is widening his lead in the Republican primary race over Ted Cruz and John Kasich. On the Democrat side, the race has become much tighter between socialist Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. If the race is this close for the Democrats, it makes won wonder what kind of unreported division there truly is in the Donkey camp and how that will play out at the convention and if Hillary is indicted or not. It is simply amazing that Hillary Clinton cannot shake Sanders. If it were not for the establishment being in the tank for Hillary and the super delegates, the Democrat race would be a virtual tie.

Also, as Hot Air opines, the polls is a little bit puzzling as to why Trump would be surging with gains by Kasich and a decline by Cruz. This is supposed to be a national poll, not a New York one.

Trump_Hillary

Donald Trump jumps to an 18-point lead over Ted Cruz this week with record high support for the Republican nomination.

Trump tops Cruz by 45-27 percent among GOP primary voters in a new Fox News national poll on the 2016 election.  John Kasich comes in third with 25 percent.

Three weeks ago, the mogul was up by three over Cruz:  41-38 percent, with Kasich at 17 percent (March 20-22, 2016).

Forty-five percent is a new high for Trump.  The previous high was last month’s 41 percent.

Trump’s best numbers come from GOP voters without a college degree (54 percent) and those who describe themselves as “very” conservative (50 percent).

In contrast, the Democratic race tightened.  Clinton is ahead by two points, edging Bernie Sanders by 48-46 percent.  Last month, before Sanders won eight of the nine most recent contests, she had a 13-point advantage (55-42 percent).

Donald Trump Whines Once Again, the Rules are ‘Stacked Against Me’

DONALD TRUMP, THE BOY WHO WHINED WOLF …

There is no doubt that the mood of the country is against establishment government and that is especially the case where Republicans are against the establishment GOP politicians. Thus the rise of outside candidates like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on the Republican side and Bernie Sanders for the Democrats. However, Trumps latest whine that he was screwed in Colorado and it was unfair is tiresome and old. If Trump wins, everything is golden, if he loses, a travesty has taken place. Now Trump is claiming the process is stacked against him. Really? Truth be known, the GOP set up the primaries and caucuses to benefit the front-runner.

If Trump does not understand the delegate process, who is going to explain the electoral college to him?

Trump Wine

Let’s get a couple things correct, Trump lost in Colorado because he failed miserably on following the rules of how tat state’s delegate process works. Donald, the rules are the rules. But I guess the rules don’t apply to Donald Trump. Wow, just what we need, another president like Obama who thinks the rules don’t apply to them. My personal opinion with Trump is that he has no idea what the delegate process is and has no idea that it is different from state to state. I think Trump actually believed that every state has a vote like a general election. Welcome to the Republic that is the United States from its founding. Trump was supposed to know the rules when he decided to run. No one just changed the rules for these state delegate processes just to screw over The Donald. Really Mr. Trump, get over your self. Trump said during a town hall with CNN“We’re really way up in votes in votes, in terms of the voters. But the Colorado thing was very, very unfair.” And I am sorry to say to all the Trump supporters and mis-guided Conservatives who support Trump, he is beginning to sound like a whining liberal.

Donald Trump said Tuesday night that the political system is “stacked against me,” and accused the Republican Party of conspiring to stop him from clinching the party’s nomination.

At a special CNN town hall in New York City ahead of next Tuesday’s crucial New York primary, Trump said: “I know the rules very well, but I know it’s stacked against me by the establishment.”

His comments elicited a tough response from Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who tweeted: “Nomination process known for a year + beyond. It’s the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. Complaints now? Give us all a break.”

The feud between Trump and rival Ted Cruz engulfed the RNC Tuesday night, after the GOP presidential front-runner at CNN’s town hall blasted “unfair” results in Colorado. He was swept there in the delegate hunt by Cruz at a party convention this weekend. A similar outcome emerged from Louisiana, where he won the primary but Cruz is seeking to sway delegates.

What I find interesting is Donald Trump, the Art of the Deal, proclaims to be such a shrewd business man and able to close big deals was ill-prepared for Colorado and its delegate process. When he got his hat handed to him by Cruz in a big way, Trump did not take it like a man, he whined, blamed others and called the system unfair. I really have to wonder whether this guy has the make up to be president.

Cooper pointed out that Cruz had invested a lot of time and effort in Colorado “going out, reaching out to people who wanted to be delegates, to run the process.”

“I mean, it was a whole electoral process to get delegates,” Cooper said.

But Trump wouldn’t budge, repeating his argument that the rules were simply stacked against him. He further said he would have won Colorado had the rules not been changed last year to the current system.

“You disagree with the process as it was in Colorado,” Cooper said. “But you had months to prepare.”

The CNN anchor continued:

Your critics say it says something about your leadership ability — for somebody who touts himself as somebody who’s an organizational genius, who’s created this amazing business organization, that you couldn’t create an organization on the ground that could beat Ted Cruz’s organization.

Trump again responded by touting his overall status at the Republican frontrunner.

“Well, if my organization’s not so good, how come I’ve won many more states than him?” he said.
