HEY BERNIE, IT WAS YOU WHO WERE BURNED IN THE END … EMAIL-GATE, PART DEUX
As reported at the NY Post, from thousands of DNC internal e-mails leaked via Wikileaks, Democratic Party official tried to use Bernie Sanders’ supposed religious beliefs to derail his presidential campaign. How does that Sanders endorsement look now of establishment candidate Hillary Clinton? All you Sanders supporters, how’s it feel to really bet burned and the shaft?
Sanders supporters … The Establishment candidate Hillary Clinton is literally laughing at all of you
The notorious hacker collective WikiLeaks dumped a massive trove of e-mails from the Democratic National Committee onto the Web Friday just as Hillary Clinton was preparing to celebrate her presidential nomination at the Democratic convention next week.
In the thousands of internal e-mails, it was revealed that a Democratic Party official tried to use Bernie Sanders’ supposed religious beliefs to derail his presidential campaign; one staffer pitched an idea for a phony sexist Trump ad and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz tried to score a staggering seven tickets to the Broadway smash “Hamilton.”
The suggestion of going after Sanders based on religion was included in one of 19,252 e-mails.
In one message dated May 5, 2016, with the subject line “No s–t,” the chief financial officer of the Democratic National Committee, Brad Marshall, plotted how to portray Sanders, who was raised Jewish in Brooklyn, as an atheist.
“It might [make] no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief,” Marshall wrote, apparently referring to Sanders and upcoming Kentucky and West Virginia primaries.
“Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage,’’ Marshall asked.
“I think I read he is an atheist.”
“This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and atheist.”
The chief executive officer at the DNC, Amy Dacey, responded with a single word: “Amen.”
HEY, LETS SEE HOW HARMONIOUS THE DEMOCRAT CONVENTION IS GOING TO BE NEXT WEEK AFTER EMAILS LEAKED BY WIKILEAKS …
Just ahead of next week’s Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia, ,PA comes 19,252 emails from the DNC leaked by Wikileaks. It is what we thought it was and much, much more. The DNC conspired with the MSM to sabotage Bernie Sanders during the Democrat primary so to aid Hillary Clinton. As reported at The Hill, Sanders supporters are none too happy.
Is it possible to have Email-gate II?
The leaked email prompted swift outcry online Friday afternoon. One apparent Sanders supporter tweeted: “HRC folks called Sanders “McCarthyite” & ranted about purity while DNC plotted to smear him as godless commie Jew.”
How dare the liberal MSM not follow in lockstep with the DNC … Wasserman Schultz Was FURIOUS With Mika Brzezinski Over Criticism.
As Red State opines, man some of these are great.
On Friday, website Wikileaks posted over 19,000 emails that were taken from the Democratic National Committee that show story manipulation and collusion with the MSM, internal attempts to sabotage Bernie Sanders during the primary, and a whole lot more.

BERNIE SANDERS, ATHEIST JEW
We all knew the party was working to help Hillary and burn Bernie, but now we have positive confirmation of some of the ways they did it. And one of those ways was to attack him on religious grounds. For serious.
Several of the emails released indicate that the officials, including Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, grew increasingly agitated with Clinton’s rival, Bernie Sanders, and his campaign as the primary season advanced, in one instance even floating bringing up Sanders’ religion to try and minimize his support.
“It might may [sic] no difference, but for KY and WA can we get someone to ask his belief,” Brad Marshall, CFO of DNC, wrote in an email on May 5, 2016. “Does he believe in God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My southern baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”
Amy Dacey, CEO of the DNC, subsequently responded “AMEN,” according to the emails.
Monmouth University Poll: Bernie Sanders Endorsement Flops with Millennials for Hillary Clinton, Trump Closes the Gap
Donald Trump is closing in on Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll from Monmouth University. Even more damning to Hillary Clinton is the fact that self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sander’s endorsement had little effect with millennials. A note to team Hillary, those that followed Sanders are not your typical voters that are just going to change on a dime. Sanders was not a candidate, it was a movement against the Democrat establishment. Of which Hillary Clinton is the poster child of. Oh, and by the way, Sanders is a socialist.
Bernie Sanders trashes Hillary … his supporters are likely not going to vote for establishment Hillary
Hillary Clinton hoped that Bernie Sanders’s endorsement would lead to millions of young people supporting her campaign, but that hasn’t worked out.
Monmouth University produced a poll on Monday showing the overwhelming majority of millennials were unaffected by Sanders’s endorsement.
According to the poll, 63 percent of likely voters ages 18-34 said that the support from Sanders had no impact on them. Another 13 percent said they were less likely to support Clinton, and just 23 percent said it made them more likely to support the former first lady.
Older generations had no opinion of the endorsement, which makes sense considering most active Sanders supporters tended to be millennials.
Overall, Clinton had a small lead among likely voters, 45 percent to Trump’s 43 percent, within the margin of error. Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Jill Stein had 5 percent and 1 percent, respectively.
ADD ANOTHER ONE TO THE VP SHORT LIST …
Could Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst be on Donald Trump’s short list of possibly VP candidates? According to the NY Times, Trump met with Ernst in Monday in New Jersey. Other candidates include Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, former Speaker Newt Gingrich and NJ Gov. Chris Christie.
Donald J. Trump met in New Jersey on Monday with Senator Joni Ernst, Republican of Iowa, as he screens potential running mates in a series of meetings.
One person briefed on the process, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said that the campaign began vetting Ms. Ernst in recent days as a possible vice-presidential pick. But it is not clear how seriously Ms. Ernst is being considered for a position that Mr. Trump has kept close counsel about filling.
Jason Miller, a senior communications adviser for Mr. Trump, declined to comment. In a statement on Monday, Ms. Ernst confirmed that she had met with Mr. Trump.
Ms. Ernst is a retired National Guard lieutenant colonel and a veteran of the Iraq war. Her military background could help Mr. Trump given his lack of foreign policy experience or national security experience. The fact that she is a woman could also help Mr. Trump with a group of voters with whom he currently polls poorly.
Ms. Ernst is also considered a possible keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention, which begins on July 18 in Cleveland.
RINO Maine Senator Susan Collins Says She Might Support Hillary Clinton … Really You Would Support Someone Who Broke Federal Law?
EVER WANNA KNOW WHY THEY CALL THEM RINO’S …
Have you ever wondered why it seems the Republican party does don’t stand up to Democrats and Barack Obama? Have you ever wondered why the GOP party does not seem to represent you nor the Republican party platform? Look no further than the liberal Republicans in the party like Sen. Susan Collins from Maine who stated she would not ruling out supporting Hillary Clinton. UNREAL. Welcome to the RINO’s that have destroyed the GOP. Who the hell in their right mind could call themselves a Republican and then state, I want to continue another 4 more years of Obama, 4 more years of this pathetic economy, 4 more years of increasing the debt to out of control numbers? What Republican would allow a lib like Hillary Clinton select 2, maybe even 3 Supreme Court Justices? Are you frigging nuts Se. Collins? Do us a favor, just change parties or retire. Oh and by the way, are the comments that Trump made about a La Raza (The Race) judge really worse than the actions Hillary Clinton took as Sec. of State and her private email server when she broke federal laws, Federal Records Act (18 U.S. Code § 2071)?
But no matter how much they have condemned Trump, none of these high-ranking Republicans have said that they would consider supporting his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with me, on Wednesday, Senator Susan Collins, of Maine, made herself the exception. Collins told me that Trump’s comment about Curiel was “an order of magnitude more serious” than anything he had previously said, including his “troubling insults towards individuals” and “his poorly-thought-out policy plan about banning Muslims from entering this country.”
She added that she was faced with an unprecedented political decision and had to keep all options open. “This is a difficult choice, and it’s one, like many of my colleagues, that I am struggling with,” Collins said. “It’s not like we have perfect candidates from whom to choose in this election.”
Collins went on to say that she has not ruled out supporting Clinton. “I worked very well with Hillary when she was my colleague in the Senate and when she was Secretary of State,” Collins said. “But I do not anticipate voting for her this fall. I’m not going to say never, because this has been such an unpredictable situation, to say the least.”
