Bernie Sanders v Hillary Clinton Brain Dump 2/21/2016

The Nevada caucuses were yesterday and Clinton won (that said, the delegate count for her and Bernie is the SAME) . The process looked truly terrible and fraught with lots of problems and opportunities for fraud. Some things

 
It was pretty hillarious to see Hillary Clinton copying Bernie Sanders, almost word for word, in her speech. Bernie Sanders said, jokingly, this morning on MTP that he's looking into copyright issues. (She will say or do anything to try to win)
Reports out of many casinos noted long lines of workers heading to caucus inside casinos. Workers at the MGM Casino received three hours of paid time off to caucus without fear of having to skip work, but employees at some other casinos were faced with the prospect of having to head back to work without participating. 

Ralston pointed to Reid's admission to The New York Times that he called the head of the Culinary Workers Union to help thousands of casino workers to make the caucuses. Clinton swept all six of the major caucuses held in casinos on the Las Vegas strip.

"Harry Reid asserted again today ... that he really can change the dynamic of an election in this state," Ralston on MSNBC.

"I think Harry Reid was very worried about Hillary Clinton losing the Nevada caucus."

On Bernie's civil rights record. I saw the other day that Jonathan Capehart called into question Sander's credentials re: his civil rights record in Chicago. Shame on Capehart for doing that. Seemed pretty ridiculous over all, especially when there is video and photos of Sanders being arrested in the 60's. Sanders also attended the MLK March on Washington for jobs. Do I think that he should be equated somehow with MLK? nope, but during the same era that Sanders was standing up for civil rights for blacks, etc, Hillary Clinton was a Republican, and for Barry Goldwater, who was a racist. Ugh. 

Here's the White House defending Sanders against Hillary Clinton smears. Because she LIES.

 

Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at a recent press briefing that the Obama administration has experienced no such animosity from Bernie.

“Senator Sanders stood not too far away from where I’m standing,” Earnest said. “You can just peek out the window and see the spot he was standing. Where he spoke to all of you after having spent an hour with the President of the United States in the Oval Office. Where he talked to all of you about how proud he was of the progress our country has made under President Obama’s leadership. And I think that’s a pretty strong statement about how supportive and proud Senator Sanders is of President Obama’s legacy.

Something else I find pretty hilarious recently. As it became clear that Clinton would lose, her supporters, generally, became much more rude, abrasive, and prone to telling mythology about Sanders supporters. I have always felt that I would vigorously fight for my candidate, have been tired for a long time of being called a BernieBro, as if Bernie Sanders supporters can ONLY be men, and NO women would be for Bernie. Really dumb, but part of the PR mchine running Clinton's campaign and not to be taken seriously. 

Another meme I don't like hearing goes along the lines of "Good that Bernie Sanders is in the race because he's bringing out new voters and is making Hilary Clinton go left'. So? Hillary Clinton will snap right back like a rubber band if she wins. Saw an email from the most recent dump of hers where she lobbied Congress to support TPP. Right. Cannot trust her. And to treat someone that a whole lot of us see as a viable candidate as merely a tool to help Clinton get elected is insulting. 

I will NOT vote for HIllary Clinton. Will not. In fact, after seeing the shenanigans the Democratic party has done this time, so transparently, I'm probably going to stop promoting the party or myself as a Democrat and be independent. Saw that Jonathan Capehart, who appears to be in the bag for Clinton and wrote some bullchit about Bernie Sanders civil rights record for which Capehart has not yet apologized, is now WARNING Democrats. Pffffttt. Take your warnings to people who like corrupt politics.
