Sanders Campaign’s Commitment To Victory Irritates Media, Offends Clinton Campaign 

http://www.pdamerica.org/component/k2/item/966-sanders-campaign-s-commitment-to-victory-irritates-media-offends-clinton-campaign 

Once again, for the umpteenth time in the Democratic presidential primary, there is a dominant narrative in the establishment news media that it is over for Bernie Sanders. News outlets have crunched the numbers, again, and after the loss to Hillary Clinton in New York, conventional wisdom is Sanders cannot win...

Corporate Media And Establishment In It Together: Matthews Furious When Clinton Is Attacked 

http://trofire.com/2016/04/21/corporate-media-and-establishment-in-it-together-matthews-furious-when-clinton-is-attacked/ 

During a segment on The Young Turks on Wednesday, they focused on one particular clip from “Hardball” host Chris Matthew who lost his cool in reference to a political ad from Bernie Sanders which mentioned “politicians” taking massive speaking fees while also opposing a $15 dollar minimum wage.

Matthews appeared incredibly offended that his golden candidate Hillary Clinton was under attack, though she was unnamed. Matthews’ full-throated defense of Clinton and the system which enables her reveals how entitled he and others like him feel to a system which benefits them with little effort...

Bill Clinton Angry That Young People Don’t Like Hillary: Says Millennials Are To Blame For Country’s Problems [Slick Willy thinks Millennials should have voted when they were in middle school]

http://trofire.com/2016/04/22/bill-clinton-angry-young-people-dont-like-hillary-says-millennials-blame-countrys-problems/ 

In a massive hit on millions of young voters all across the country, former president Bill Clinton said in a speech this week that if young voters had showed up to the midterm in 2010, nearly every political issue America is facing right now would no longer exist.

“If all the young people who claim to be disillusioned now had voted in 2010, we wouldn’t have lost the Congress, and we’d probably have our incomes back.”...

Hold Superdelegates responsible 

http://jackpineradicals.org/showthread.php?7422-Hold-Superdelegates-responsible 

The Bernie media blackout, election fraud and vote suppression in multiple states, HRCs corrupt money advantage, DWS tactics and the Superdelegates spotting Hillary hundreds of unpledged delegates before any real votes were taken have made this election a farce...

Big Money in Politics: The Clinton Defense Won’t Cut It 

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-l-borosage/big-money-in-politics-the_b_9769104.html 

Hillary Clinton’s heated defense of the money she has raised from Wall Street and other interests won’t cut it. Her protests contradict the basic case that virtually all Democrats and reformers have made for getting big money out of politics. It is vital that voters not be misled by them.

Normally, liberal politicians defend setting up Super PACs, and collecting large sums from big donors because while they pledge to curb the influence of the rich and corporations in our politics if elected, they can’t “unilaterally disarm.” Clinton repeats this argument, but it has less force against Bernie Sanders who not only has made the corrosive effect of big money contributions central to his campaign, but has demonstrated that it is possible to be competitive without setting up Super PACs and without asking billionaires and millionaires for money. By funding his campaign with small donations raised on line, Sanders has not only walked his talk, he’s stripped away the easy defense of “they all do it.”...

Clinton, Sanders coming to Minnesota today [UPDATE] 

http://www.twincities.com/2016/02/12/clinton-sanders-put-in-minnesota-appearance-friday/ 

...“I would have been in favor of changes to our structure,” he said. As shocked Sanders supporters were realizing that Clinton’s super delegate strength in New Hampshire gave her nearly equal New Hampshire delegate strength despite Sanders’ primary blowout, Morillo-Alicea wrote: “In the unlikely event of the convention coming down to super delegates deciding over the will of the voting electorate of primary and caucus goers, I would not participate in that.  What that means, who the heck knows.  It’s a far-fetched hypothetical.”...

Noam Chomsky: Bernie Sanders is Not a Radical, He Has Mass Support for Positions on Healthcare & Taxes 

http://www.democracynow.org/2016/4/27/noam_chomsky_bernie_sanders_is_not 

During an event Tuesday night, Noam Chomsky was asked about Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and said he considered him more of a "New Deal Democrat" than a radical extremist, as some have portrayed him. Chomsky said Sanders’ positions on taxes and healthcare are supported by a majority of the American public, and have been for a long time. He added that Sanders has "mobilized a large number of young people who are saying, 'Look, we're not going to consent anymore.’ If that turns into a continuing, organized, mobilized force, that could change the country—maybe not for this election, but in the longer term."

Chomsky is a world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author and institute professor emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he’s taught for more than half a century. He spoke at the Brooklyn Public Library at an event hosted by Live from the NYPL...

What if I told you it doesn't help? What would you do if you found out that none of it matters?

TWO BY ABRAHAM LINCOLN: 

"We may congratulate ourselves that this cruel war is nearing its end.
It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood. . . .
It has indeed been a trying hour for the Republic; but
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes
me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war,
corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places
will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong
its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth
is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety
of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war.
God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless."

The passage appears in a letter from Lincoln to (Col.) William F.
Elkins, Nov. 21, 1864.

See: http://www.ratical.org/corporations/Lincoln.html



"These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in
concert to fleece the people, and now that they have got
into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to
appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel."

speech to Illinois legislature, Jan. 1837.
See Vol. 1, p. 24 of Lincoln's Complete Works,
ed. by Nicolay and Hay, 1905)
