How Did Hillary ‘Clinch’ the Dem Nomination On a Day Where Nobody Voted?

If you needed further evidence that the Democratic presidential primary is rigged; well, here’s your sign. On the night of June 6 (where no primary was held or votes were cast), the Associated Press declared Hillary Clinton the winner.

How did this happen in the party who calls itself “democratic” and the so-called “party of the people?” Michael Krieger explains in his post at

“Last night, the American public witnessed the most egregious example of mainstream media malpractice of my lifetime. By declaring Hillary Clinton the Democratic nominee based on the pledges of superdelegates who have note voted, and will not vote until the convention on July 25th, the Associated Press performed a huge disservice to American democracy on the eve of a major primary day, in which voters from the most populous state in the union (amongst others) head to the polls. If you are a U.S. citizen and you aren’t outraged by this, there’s something seriously wrong with you.”

In the same post, Krieger quoted Glenn Greenwald, writing at The Intercept:

“This is the perfect symbolic ending to the Democratic Party primary: The nomination is consecrated by a media organization, on a day when nobody voted, based on secret discussions with anonymous establishment insiders and donors whose identities the media organization – incredibly – conceals. The decisive edifice of superdelegates is itself anti-democratic and inherently corrupt: designed to prevent actual voters from making choices that the party establishment dislikes. But for a party run by insiders and funded by corporate interests, it’s only fitting that their nomination process ends with such as ignominious, awkward and undemocratic sputter.

“That the Democratic Party nominating process is declared to be over in such an uninspiring, secretive, and elite-driven manner is perfectly symbolic of what the party, and its likely nominee, actually is. The one positive aspect, though significant, is symbolic, while the actual substance – rallying behind a Wall-Street-funded, status-quo-perpetuating, multi-millionaire militarist – is grim in the extreme. The Democratic Party got exactly the ending it deserved.”


Although Hillary Clinton may be a more vulnerable candidate than Bernie Sanders, this isn’t a good sign for the state of our nation. Political corruption and media propaganda are signs of a third-world country, not a first-world superpower. Given the levels of debt at the government, corporate and household levels, the United States may be a former first-world country sooner than we expect.

Do you think this coronation of Hillary Clinton by Democratic elites is a sign that our country is in trouble?

    Almost as bad as the NRC members telling us Republicans that they’re not going to recognize Trump as winner in our race to elect a presidential nominee. Both parties are pathetic and, in no way, resemble the process upon which our nation is based. By their rules it’s government by “we the political bosses” not by “we the people”.

      During the debates, I hope That Trump will stop yelling and start talking with more substance. He should counter Hillary with record facts and just stop the name calling already. Otherwise, even if what he says is true, Hillary will still appear more presidential than him. Its time to behave like an adult, and attack like an adult.

      1. Howleyesque

        Sadly, it’s being made clear to us that this is NO LONGER OUR COUNTRY! BOTH party’s are now SO corrupt and sold out that it NOW belongs to the damned Saudi Arabians who are pulling their strings like puppeteers

          They have contributed more than 20% of Hillary’s campaign funding. Wonder what they expect in return?

      2. Dan

        You couldn’t have said it better . We need Trump to not only show his platform but do it in a classy way. If he sticks to the facts and data available on Hillary he will walk away with non Trump folks and Trump supporters alike saying may he is right she does not have America’s best interest at heart.

      3. KingDon

        I agree. He does have to handle what he says with a little more finesse. But he needs to do this without backtracking. He must always remember that, no matter how crazy anything is that Hilliary says, the mainstream media have her back and will take care of the damage control as always. On the other hand, they will crucify Trump at every opportunity and twist anything he says to fit their agenda. There is no such a thing as an unbiased comment coming out of the MSM.

      Unfortunately you make a good argument. To start a new political party to counter the old establishment takes time, but eventually it will have to be done at some time.

      1. used_to_be_a_liberal

        The making of a new political party could very well be happening right now. We could be smack in the middle of a birth of a new party. We know who the RINOs are, we know who the double dealers are. We know that the Democrat Party is a p o s.
        Those in the Republican that wish to dump Trump are doing this for self-preservation, and to keep the agenda going, they know that Trump will put a stop to this garbage, and clean house.
        The American people for the most part see right through these political prostitutes, and “wanna be” rulers, and more are waking up everyday.
        This election is going to come down to just a few things, upholding, and protecting the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, re-asserting American sovereignty both politically, and economically, this will include immigration, and that wall. Trump could do it.
        If the hierarchy of the G O P decide, or try to actually remove Trump from being the presidential candidate, then they have cut their own throats, as anyone that they put in to run against Trump, would not likely get more then one million votes. Trump could run as an independent and easily win. Then there is your new party, headed by an independent conservative, and man will the feathers be flying.
        Now you might be thinking that they could block Trump as president from doing anything, or not giving him the funding. You maybe pleasantly surprised to be wrong. Trump could use the National Security Act to do all those things that are previously mentioned, this is not an executive order that can be challenged, far from it. Trump could do this in his first hour of being president, he could do it from the podium on inauguration day.
        Yup the sparks would fly, left-wits would be screaming and pulling out their hair, you know what, So What.

    Ho hum. so what else is new? I doubt very seriously if anyone really expected anything else. It’s been Hillary’s turn since 2008, and she expects, in fact she’s OWED, her coronation without even bothering to have people (ugh!) vote on it. It’s hers, they owe it to her, and she’d damn well better get it, OR ELSE!

    1. jreg9304

      What else is new? The new is yet to come, come November. She is owing and she will pay. trump will see to it!

      I’d say the elites are laughing at us. It proves people don’t have the power to do anything or the balls to do what is right.

    Corruption is present in all areas of our formerly great nation. The media is the 2nd worst regime of corruption — exceeded only by the federal government itself, the host of the greatest amount of corruption.

    1. jreg9304

      Formerly Great? America is just a sick sleeping giant, waiting to be woken up. you hit the nail on the head as far as government exceeding itself. It just has gotten to big for Americas needs.


    it is time to reorganize the presidency. The people would vote for one man from each state and from each holding of the US to serve as cabinet only and have a vote to elect one among them to stand in representation of America as president and serve as commander of our armed forces. One other would be selected to serve as vice president Others would be selected to serve and step into the vice presidents seat. All the others would act as servants of the many departments now controlled by only one man. Each department would be accountable to one selected by the group and he to the committee as a whole giving the states closer control of the federal government. The standing president would sign or veto the bills with the advisement or the veto of two thirds of the state representatives. Lastly these elected would be paid by the states and have no access to lobbyists. Any funds or gifts of any size would forfeit their position. If a president fails to serve the citizen or violates his oath the committee can remove or be petitioned by two thirds of the states and holdings considered. A president is to serve the people the elections are therefore non partisan allowing for a succession to keep the presidency intact should disaster strike. Each elected would reside in his or her home state keeping the possibility of all harmed at once to an absolute minimum. The office provided would be in constant direct contact with the people they serve. the states in which is served by the president and vice president would have an office manager to perform these duties with all the same powers but no Ascension path to the presidency. We as citizens can no longer tolerate this much power in the hands of one man or woman

    1. jreg9304

      Great point on too much power in one’s hands!! Trump, WILL, follow the Constitution to the letter and not exceed the power we entrust to him as President. This you can be most assured of!!

  9. Bob Taylor

    I have observed the Constitution that was to keep the citizens free is dead and used by the government only when it supports what they want. The Supreme Court has been appointed by political standings passing laws (or creating their own see Obama care) consistent with the party in power. We the people have allowed this through “It don’t affect me so I don’t care” and “what else is free I will vote for them” attitude. This open attitude of selection by the party just proves it has gotten to the point they don’t even try to hide the corruption. Obama did a lot of destruction but he only continued what both parties started. I am not sure where it is going but if an internal riot erupts we are finished. Take a look at this…

    This act was signed and is the law for now if he wants to do it.

    Here’s what The Washington Times warned:

    “Executive Order 13603 (National Defense Resources Preparedness) states that, in case of a war or national emergency, the federal government has the authority to take over almost every aspect of American society. Food, livestock, farming equipment, manufacturing, industry, energy, transportation, hospitals, health care facilities, water resources, defense and construction – all of it could fall under the full control of Mr. Obama. The order empowers the president to dispense these vast resources as he sees fit during a national crisis.”

    That sure sounds like martial law. Everyone should read the order. He has set up a total dictatorship that can be implemented upon declaration of a national emergency. He has delegated authority to cabinet positions over every aspect of this country. It is scary. Here is the web site to look:

      1. jreg9304

        We sure can come his last day in office.. Obama will be out crapping his shorts and Trump will be in the oval office writing an exec. order for Obozo’s arrest for treason! that can’t come soon enough..

    1. James Newberry

      That has been my scariest scenario for a while now. BO doesn’t want to give up the office. The only saving grace we have is that the military and police who are both are us and live among us. They will not obey any orders from DC about arresting their neighbors, etc. If we don’t elect Trump, it is just a matter of time before the deal leaves the realm of talking and arms come into play. I just cannot figure out why such class envy has arisen the last few years? Is it a result of “education”? Home grown ideology? Why can’t people see and understand what happens in a purely socialized environment? And, that printing money will catch up to sooner or later.

      1. Bob Taylor

        Now that it is legal for the military to accept illegal persons into it we are soon destined to have an Army (which includes all other branches) of non-Americans trained and armed with the latest weapons as our protectors. Has anyone thought about them being used as the enforcers of martial law? If push comes to shove against the citizens of America whose side do you think the illegal in uniform would help?

        The Treasury Department defines a tax as “a compulsory payment for which no specific benefit is received in return.” No matter how much in taxes a person pays or what politicians promise, the taxpayer is not irrevocably entitled to a single benefit from government. The fact that some people benefit from how their tax dollars are spent does not make the process of taxation any less coercive.

        Laws are structured so that government agents rarely need to soil their hands with citizens’ blood. For instance, IRS rules and regulations allow IRS agents to confiscate a citizen’s bank account without a court order and without any proof of the citizen’s wrongdoing, merely on the basis of the IRS agent’s unsubstantiated allegation that the citizen owes taxes.

        One of the quiet things that has been done under Obama is the IRS made some large purchases of military grade equipment along with millions of dollars worth of Ammunition. Now why would a (Private Company under contract to collect taxes) IRS need to arm their agents with that kind of equipment.

    The DNC, aka, Debbie Washerman Schultz, made sure the superdelegate votes went to Clinton, so she can be declared the winner, and move on to destroy Trump by hook or by crook. This is what the Clintons are greatly known for, CHEATING! Of course, with the help of the George Soros funding, and from the middle east funding, in exchsnge for her silence against the muslims, the cheating is successful!

    I complained about this in last election. Obummer was not elected president buy the American people. The time for the Delegates should be over. The people have the right to choose not are communist government.

  13. Girlie58

    The Gop needs to be punished for betraying their party and the people, by not supporting the nominee, who happens to be Trump! If Trump loses the election, it will be because of the betrayal, no doubt! I will no longer support the Gop after this election. Sadly, I may never vote again unless, a good dem goes in the ballot. That may be after another 8 yrs. seriously, I think he GOP IS COLLAPSING. I don’t think that party will exist by 2020. People are turned off by their behavior snd betrayal, of the worst kind! Worst than Bebefict Armold I think! Especially Ryan, who’s wife is a dem, and probably wears the pants in his household!

This act was signed and is the law for now if he wants to do it.

    Huh – do ya’ think? The democratic party of yesterday threw away the words that describe their very nature “democratic” and replaced it, through the minds and hands of Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Clinton. They should, and need, to change their name to the American Socialist Party because NOTHING they do is democratic. NOTHING. For two people to stand up in front of the nation with cameras rolling and tell the American people that we MUST do things their way because we are not intelligent enough to think and act for ourselves is the biggest SPIT in the face of all Americans, and yet, there are the foolish sheep that still follow along believing all the lies these 4 people dish out.

  18. Bob Taylor

    When the Framers made the judiciary a separate branch of government, they did not intend to elevate judge-made rules to a level of equality with positive law, much less to a superior position, and yet that is how the Due Process Clause is now being interpreted with respect to the most fundamental and important issues in American society and family life. By gradually replacing the meaning of the Due Process Clause, the judiciary is exercising judicial review of the Constitution itself, for conformity with the judiciary’s own subjectivistic concept of inalienable rights and liberties.

    The U.S. Constitution reflects the will of the people, as that will is expressed in the words of the document itself, and those words are meant to withstand the changing temper of the judiciary. The great principle of liberty – in both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments – is inextricably connected to the principle of due process, and no court has authority to sever that connection. A wise New Yorker, and primary sponsor of the Due Process Clause, warned against such encroachments upon political liberty:

    [T]he people should make the laws by which they were to be governed. He who is controlled by another is a slave; and that government which is directed by the will of any one, or a few, or any number less than is the will of the community, is a government for slaves. The Due Process Clause requires that judicial proceedings unfold according to the law, rather than according to the judiciary’s contrary opinions.

  19. Bob Taylor

    “Rights of Citizens” enumerated in the United States Constitution. PLEASE READ THIS THEN READ IT AGAIN. The things in this post may be coming to you in the near future. NOT because you are an ex-felon but, because they can already and they will just be extending it to include “Terrorists and no fly lists.” Then just to all those left.

    Perhaps the first thing we should do is set the stage for constitutional discussion. Before we talk about laws, rights and the Constitution we need to determine which of these would take precedence in a court of law. The framers of the Constitution anticipated this and wrote a Supremacy clause;

    “This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”
    The notwithstanding word is quite a mouthful. In this case it means that anything in the Constitution following the paragraph cannot be read to mean it overrides the paragraph and also says the States cannot override the Constitution as being the “Supreme” law of the land. To this layman it does not allow any law written by the states nor any other lawful entity to declare law which does not conform to this Constitution. It does make treaties on a par with the Constitution thus the Federal government declared the United Nations Charter is a treaty and is equal to the Constitution as the law of the land.

    Amendment 9 – Construction of Constitution. Ratified 12/15/1791.

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. They were enumerated because of the importance of each one. The original Bill of Right had 13 Amendments but was eventually reduced to the 10 we know of today.

    Amendment 10 – Powers of the States and People. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
    Thus we have restrictions on government not the people.

    Proceeding farther along the next thing we should visit is the wording and words used in the Constitution. This quote may provide some explanation. “Since a constitution is a law, and the supreme law within its domain, and authorizes statutes and other official acts which have a textual expression, the principles of constitutional interpretation are essentially the same as the principles of statutory or judicial interpretation.”We can also add this explanation; “Every right recognized by the Constitution is immunity, that is, a right against a positive action by government, and is equivalent to a restriction on delegated powers. Conversely, every delegated power is a restriction on immunities. An immunity may be expressed either as a declaration of the right, or as a restriction on powers.”

    I think those are the reasons the Rights of the people have variations of these words; “the right of the people” and “shall not be infringed” used throughout the Constitution.

    Amendment 14 – Citizenship Rights. Ratified 7/9/1868. Note History

    1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    Take note of the punctuation used in the Constitution. In many cases it signals like thought but, separate statements within a sentence. For example the 14th has three separate but related statements separated by a semi-colon. That is a period to end one sentence but also a comma to show another separate sentence within the same idea or preface remark.

    Due process, in the context of the United States, refers to how and why laws are enforced. It applies to all persons, citizen or alien, as well as to corporations. In that, the “how” is procedural due process. Is a law too vague? Is it applied fairly to all? Does a law presume guilt? A law must be clear, fair, and have a presumption of innocence to comply with procedural due process.

    The “why” is substantive due process. Even if an unreasonable law is passed and signed into law legally (procedural due process), substantive due process can make the law unconstitutional.

    In summary, the phrase “due process” had – and has – a precise meaning. Due process of law refers to legal proceedings that are owed according to law. Not surprisingly, then, the word “due” in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments has the same objectivistic meaning as in the original Constitution. (38 Akron Law Rev. 1 (2005)).

    Recently there have been several stories in the news about restoring voting rights to ex-felons. Let me state right up front that voting is not the reason behind the government attempting to remove citizens’ rights. It is because of the second amendment and their fear of an armed citizenry. I will delve a bit deeper into the second amendment a bit later. For now let’s look at the right to vote. In any discussion of removal of rights it should first be determined if the person is a citizen. If the person is a citizen then he/she falls under the following; The Constitution does not explicitly provide any procedure for loss of United States citizenship. Loss of U.S. citizenship is possible only under the following circumstances:

    • Fraud in the naturalization process. Technically, this is not loss of citizenship but rather a voiding of the purported naturalization and a declaration that the immigrant never was a U.S. citizen.

    • Voluntary relinquishment of citizenship. This may be accomplished either through renunciation procedures specially established by the State Department or through other actions which demonstrate an intent to give up U.S. citizenship.

    For a long time, voluntary acquisition or exercise of a foreign citizenship was considered sufficient cause for revocation of U.S. citizenship. This concept was enshrined in a series of treaties between the United States and other countries (the Bancroft Treaties). However, the Supreme Court repudiated this concept in Afroyim v. Rusk, 387 U.S. 253 (1967), as well as Vance v. Terrazas, 444 U.S. 252 (1980), holding that the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment barred the Congress from revoking citizenship.

    So now we find that the citizenship cannot be removed by Congress it also implies that a lower court cannot take a citizenship away. With the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, the restrictions on the removal of rights is inviolate. Now the real reason behind trying to force a reduction or removal of rights is actually found within the Second Amendment. It is natural that the court would want to remove a person’s right to have a firearm and to vote. These two amendments are the only amendments that could affect an elected official’s remaining in office. However, the courts cannot remove any citizens’ rights specifically enumerated in the Constitution without first passing an amendment and then having that amendment ratified as required by the Constitution. The Constitution does give the Congress the authority to regulate naturalization but cannot regulate a natural born citizens’ status.

    • District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) – The Court ruled the Second Amendment to reference an individual right, holding:

    “The Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.”[1]

    • McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010) – The Court ruled that the Second Amendment was incorporated against state and local governments, through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.[2]

    In the decision, the Court said:

    In Heller, we held that the Second Amendment protects the right to possess a handgun in the home for the purpose of self-defense. Unless considerations of stare decisis counsel otherwise, a provision of the Bill of Rights that protects a right that is fundamental from an American perspective applies equally to the Federal Government and the States. We therefore hold that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the Second Amendment right recognized in Heller.[3]

    • Caetano v. Massachusetts, 577 U.S. ___ (2016) – The Court ruled that the Second Amendment extends to all forms of bearable arms:

    The Court has held that the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding, and that this Second Amendment right is fully applicable to the States.[4]

    There will be some courts not allowing the Constitution into their courtroom and will argue that due process gives them the authority over a convicted felon to remove both voting and firearms rights. If that were correct it would also allow the court to remove all citizenship rights and have a true taxation without representation. The court does not have that power.

    Amendment 13 – Slavery Abolished. Ratified 12/6/1865. History

    1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

    The 13th Amendment describes punishment for a crime as involuntary servitude by its wording and punctuation. Now we look at the 15th amendment.

    Amendment 15 – Race No Bar to Vote. Ratified 2/3/1870. History

    1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

    Note that the right to vote extends to “previous condition of servitude”.

    The same widely accepted view is ex-felons cannot vote nor have a firearm both of which can be rebutted by reading the Supreme Law of The Land.

  20. TexRancher

    Right now, we are heading to become a Lawless Nation as we already have a lawless administration. It will only get worse if we can’t throw a Monkey Wrench into the system. Trump is just that kind of Monkey Wrench. They can’t buy him and so far it appears that they can’t scare him either!

  21. Leonard Morrow

    I didn’t vote for Trump, but he is now the Parties Nominee and he is the one I will vote for.
    RNC be damned with their shenanigans of trying to select some one else for the Parties Leader.The people have voted. The Democratic Party is just showing how corrupted they are, The Super Delegates are just another way of rigging an election, they weren’t voted for nor should they be involved in selection of a Party Leader. Primary Vote or the final election should be BY THE PEOPLE not party Elite.

    1. autrypma

      You are totally correct. The candidate that the people have already voted for and who won, is the people’s choice. Don’t try to rig us up, people. There are things like “Revolt by the People”…Read up on the Declaration of Independence!! I did.
      It was written for the EXACT REASONS WE ARE NOW BEGINNING TO FIGHT FOR” all over again…It reads like the history of Obama’s 7+ years in office.
      Everybody…get a copy of “Birth of a Nation” Buy someone else one. There are
      probably millions who have never read this book. Pass this info along. WE DO NOT HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THIS STUFF.

      1. Leonard Morrow

        Yep it’s called Article V where WE THE PEOPLE can reclaim our rights from Big Government. Only if we can get the State Legislatures to stand for WE THE PEOPLE and force Big Government back to be controlled by the voters.

    2. Soulspeaker

      true but it hasn’t been “we the people” since they shoved evolution down our throats in schools.

      1. Leonard Morrow

        Was that before or after they put My relatives on Reservations, but decided we were draftable for their wars. Then we opened a place called Coushatta and now we are allowed to vote in our native country and pay taxes. Big Government only after the money.

        1. Soulspeaker

          Always have to bring up your relatives as if happened to you too. What happened to them happened to them not you.

          1. Leonard Morrow

            You are so correct it didn’t happen to me. But like all my relatives I was in the service for over 8 years. Undraftable before and after, but this is my country and I want it to remain that way. Was watching a News broadcast about a Vigule for the Orlando killings with a Black Collage student complaining about how the blacks are treated. It just burns me up to hear them complaining about something that happened over a hundred years ago. I got no complaints.

  22. Marilyn Krocheski

    It definitely is and all those dems that were left out in the cold , so to speak, should vote Republican. They should no longer trust the dems, it’s been this way for years but they’ve been to brainwashed. Kind of like the frog in cold water, stays in and even if they turn up the heat gradually they still stay in and finally, the heat is turned way up and it’s too late for them to get out….. Too bad, so sad…….

  23. jreg9304

    Your damn straight our country is in serious trouble! It will take a very long time to fix what the ignorant fools in Washington have corrupted. THE HAG Clinton should be in prison, not on the campaign trail.

    Actually, every last one of our hired clowns need to be thrown out of office on their ears, with a size 12 boot to the backside from Uncle Sam which is no other than We The People. When is the rest of America going to wake up and totally realize just what is going on in Washington DC?

  24. autrypma

    We are in for a far rougher ride than ever, Folks. Hillary Clinton and the Liberal Democrats are going to try to make Trump’s life totally miserable until the Republican convention…ALSO, the somewhat idiot Republicans (not all) are planning to try to change the rules at the Republican Convention. WHY? Do they want to just “give” our country to Hillary to finish destroying. Trump is the ONLY PERSON (WITH GOD”S HELP) that can win this election. And I believe he can clean house as good as most Southern housewives. Also, keep up with the Republicans and/or Democrats who are voting for everything Obama wants…they will be running again and they should be run out of Washington, DC!!! They have betrayed their voters, and basically their country by aiding and abetting the enemy…

  25. Shelba Herring

    Just goes to prove the democ rats will do anything to get this lying piece of trash in the white house in order for them to continue destroying this nation

  26. No-Mo-BO

    Forget Hitlery, as long as one dim-witted, emotion-not-logic, blame-guns-not-criminals, Islam-loving, Jihad-denying Liberal is sucking wind we are ALL in trouble.

  27. TOM

    it was a blatant attempt by the press to influence the vote in California. when you announce the day before that the devil had the nomination wrapped up, how many people do you think it affected when they voted the next day????? Bernie was a victum of the Clinton Crime Machine and the continued stupid journalism by the Major networks. Some anchors must have trouble sleeping at night when they try to sleep, knowing that they lie to the people almost daily for this candidate.

    1. Kevin

      The whole situation reminds me of a few election cycles back when one particular candidate in Florida was announced the winner, when not all the voting precincts had closed, due to the time zone boundary running north/south that separates most of Florida from the “panhandle.” (Sorry, I forget which election it was now.) But, the media essentially declared who the winners were, thus disenfranchising the voters in the panhandle from the relevancy of their vote.

  28. Patriot47

    Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
    One born every minute, and auto-registered a democrat.

  29. Rexford70

    I am,a bit, depressed about the whole election system that both the DNC and the RNC have established since George Washington was President of the United States. I have suspected for a long, long time that foreign investors have ” Donated” rather large sums into so called charity organizations and that are directly funneling those funds into governing organizations.Notice: I did not say the U.S. Government. I said Governing Organizations. I:e: Democrats and Republican parties alike!
    I was a registered Republican however I’ve watched and listened to the Democratic and Republican party Representatives ( we used to identify them as ” Candidates” and find that I am disgusted with the whole process. It takes Millions and Millions of Dollars to run a Campaign. WHY?????????? Who benefits? Who decides who is the best “man” for the job. We the People?

    1. Gerald

      It should be we the people and not delegates. The people need to force our government to arrest Killiary. I cant believe she is still free. Every one is wondering why Bernie has not dropped out.If the law does it’s job Killary will be in jail.

  30. mrp15

    I’m sick of hearing about all of Hillary’s indiscretions because she gets away with them all. Nothing ever happens to her and she is never held accountable. So why bother reporting it? Get your hopes up that she’s finally being exposed for the crooked liar that she is and then she continues to run for president. Bernie wasted his time going up against her. Never had a chance – like a snowball in hell.

  31. John R. De Lude

    This is undoubtedly the most EVIL action taken by the democratic party.
    They MUST (not just should) hang their heads in shame.
    Better still, maybe we should simply “HANG” all of them.

  32. 40Helen60

    How on earth can anyone who is a criminal run for President or even hold any position in Washington? Anyone else who ever commits just one of the crimes Hillary has committed goes to prison, but not Hillary. No, she’s above the law and the law cannot touch her. Well, it’s time to show, Ms. Know it all Witch Hillary, no one is above the law.
