Cenk Interviews Bernie Sanders on Young Turks

Bernie Sanders just said on The Young Turks that He May Not Back Hillary Clinton if He Loses [Full Interview]

Bernie Sanders: "What is the Democratic establishment gonna do for us?"

Cenk Uygur over at the Young Turks had the interview of a lifetime. He just interviewed Bernie Sanders, and it was a mind-blower.

Today on The Young Turks Cenk Uygur interviewed Bernie Sanders and asked the question:

“Now, a lot of the people in the movement have decided that you are their leader, partly because you’re running for President, but you look at some recent polls of millennials, they have you by far the most popular politician; but they actually have you as more popular as a person they’d like to meet above Beyonce`, okay that’s a hell of a thing…

But you have convinced them that Hillary Clinton is the establishment candidate. If you were to lose, and the Democratic party comes to you and says take this movement that is full of energy and that is against the establishment, and make sure they vote for the establishment candidate, what do you say?”

Bernie’s answer was gold, and left things up in the air on whether he would back Hillary or go his own way…

Well.. what I say: Number one I’m not that big into being a “leader”… I’d much rather prefer to see a lot of leaders and a lot of grassroots activism.

Number two, what we do is together, as a nation .. as a growing movement is we say: “If we don’t win..” and by the way we are in this thing to win, please understand that. “What is the Democratic establishment gonna do for us?”

From this exchange we can surmise that there’s no guarantee that he will blindly back the Democratic Party’s candidate if we get nothing out of doing so.

Depending on how things look in July,  an Independent run could be in the works. He’s said he probably wouldn’t consider it – but that was months ago.That was before this got messy.

It was before millions of people were disenfranchised in Arizona and likely will be in future contests. It was before Bill Clinton started showing up at polling places in Massachusetts and Illinois blocking traffic, and delaying voters from getting to the polls. The more people that are cast aside during this election, the more angry we as a movement get.. and the more angry Bernie gets..if it keeps going like this there will be a fever pitch where we all going to band together and “Bern down” the establishment together.

If Trump wins the nomination, it’s likely that Republicans might throw in a third party candidate, or if there’s a brokered convention and Trump loses even though he has a majority of the delegates – he may run as an Independent. If it’s Hillary Clinton facing two right wing candidates, Bernie would stand a lot better chance. Some are even saying that if it’s between Trump and Hillary that both candidates have such low favorability ratings that Bernie Sanders could still win against the both of them.

When asked whether he really believes that Hillary Clinton would keep any of her promises that she’s made since Iowa when she switched up her whole platform, he said basically that it’s very doubtful. You can see her thinking prematurely that she’s already won, and already she’s moving back to center on the issues.

People see her dishonesty, and only her die hard supporters don’t see through it.

Bernie quoted Tom Donahue head of the Chamber of Commerce who said: “Don’t worry what she said in the campaign, she’s just trying to match Bernie Sanders. If she’s elected, I think she’ll be okay on the TPP”.

Watch the full interview below (by the way the part about whether he’d back the establishment candidate or not is around the 16 minute mark).

    I’m profoundly deaf but I don’t see a transcript or closed captioning… I’d love to watch your stuff but ALAS I cannot.

    • Mary

      On the bottom right of the video player there should be a CC icon. (try playing the video first if you don’t see it right away)

  • Tras sus pillerias, con tantas mentiras y los pronuniamientos intervemcionistas, ademas de que ha vendido el alma a los grandes intereses corporativos y Wall Street, apoyar a Hillary es renunciar a los principios fundamentales de justicia social de The Bern. La Clinton se ha vuelto insostenible para la izquierda.

  • donnasaggia

    It’s still an ambiguous answer — how can you make the unDemocratic party the party of the people just by asking for a few reforms — which Clinton will agree to, but then renege on without consequences? Clinton can NEVER be trusted, and Sanders acknowledges as much, so his idea to hold Clinton at her word is pure idealistic nonsense. Bernie hasn’t changed his position — he’ll ask his followers to support Clinton if he loses the nomination. That’s when the real revolution will begin.

  • Topbrick

    So glad he have this answer. The Democratic party is holding the American people in contempt, by the way they treat Sanders, the outrageous rigging of the debates and the fact that they ignore the huge support the has from independents and young people. Then there’s Bill Clinton’s outrageous and illegal behaviour at polling places and the possible rigging in several races.They do not deserve out support. They’re trying to force the corrupt and inept Clinton on us. She is the choice of Haim Saban, who controls the DNC. We’re not having it.

    • Anne

      Yes! Everything is a conspiracy. Rigging? By asking him actual policy questions? what jerks!

      • Bernie Sanders is being investigated in the NH state by the attorney general for having paying people to come from europe and vote for him there cause they dont have u show prove of your res. and dont have voting id card u have to show which he rigged himself and videos of the people who did it recorded it

        • Anne

          Why are you replying to me? I was making fun of their ridiculous acertions.

        • Mirko Schreiber

          Do you have a link to that story bout the Sanders-investigation?

          • John Smith

            you can’t post links on here, they want you to be ill informed. Google okeefe video

          • Right.. watch this I run this site and I’m posting a link: http://google.com – tell another lie please.

          • John Smith

            Im not lying, I tried to post the link and it puts me in moderation. Did you look up the article, why don’t you post it?

        • Sherrie Moore

          That is the most outrageous lie i’ve herd yet. Please post a link to a reliable source for this nonsense. No? didn’t think so.

    • Miles

      Topbrick, then vote for the Greens. Bill Clinton broke no election laws. Were you there, I have a cousin who was. She met Bill while at the polling place. She said no one was delayed or prohibited from voting and Bill did not electioneer in prohibited areas. She lives in Newton, Massachusetts. Unfortunately, people like you will elect a Republican. Get used to President Cruz. You schmuck!

      • So he came without his secret service entourage? I’ve seen videos people have taken where the parking lots and streets were blocked by his motorcade… Can you provide proof otherwise?

    • Roseanna Danza

      How ’bout the trolls for her on this comment section? They’re utterly silly.

  • Anne

    As if this isnt biased. I am confused why anyone think general election polls matter right now. Did BSs polls matter last summer?

    • Mirko Schreiber

      Yes that total pro-sanders-bias everywhere in the media it´s really sickening /sarcasm

      • No kidding all of CNN’s polls show him beating Trump and Cruz by 15+ points and Hillary’s much less maybe 6-8 on Trump, and she’s tied with Cruz — YET on one of the morning shows they keep touting how she’s more electable.. basically calling their own poll a piece of shit.

        • Anne

          That is because she is more electable. We haven’t gotten to summer yet. The national polls mean noting now. He is too left and has too much baggage. That would be abundantly clear if he won. There is a reason the Koch brothers and Karl Rove spend money against her. Bernie has had the fortune to ride that ride, after the nomination process not so much.

          • Roseanna Danza

            THAT is patently false. ONLY Bernie Sanders can beat Drumpf.

          • Anne

            Huh? What is false.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Your teeth.

          • Anne

            Another good point Sunday! You are on a roll!! Gosh pointing out grammar and an odd remark about my teeth, what good points! Now I agree with everything you say! Touche Sunday, touche.

          • MrsRealism

            What on EARTH gives you that ridiculous idea?

          • Sunday Gardénia

            What ridiculous idea do you take issue with?

          • Boaty McBoatface

            That’s true only if all the “purists’ don’t vote because Hillary isn’t progressive enough for them.

            You want a progressive government? VOTE BLUE, DOWN THE LINE.

          • JLo

            HRC is not progressive. If she was, she’d get the votes. It’s as simple as that.

          • MrsRealism

            She’s been progressive since her first year of college, Take off your dunce cap and do some research. And look at the record. She has a long trail of progressive accomplishments! If you care about the country, you’ll be honest with yourself and stick your partisan ideology where the sun don’t shine.

          • trenaherringtonchapman

            She isn’t a zealot. Look it up.

          • Nate Glenn

            That means you’ll be voting for Rahm Emmanuel, and if you have any clue who that is, which I doubt, then you realize your argument just got conclusively debunked.

          • MrsRealism

            It is to laugh!

          • trenaherringtonchapman

            That is your opinion. It would be interesting to know what you think now, two months later, when your hero has been exposed for the hypocrite he has always been.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Wait, what? Sanders has too much baggage??? WTF you talking about, dimwit?

          • Tintern

            Why the name calling? Not necessary and harmful for your candidate. Multiple news stories state that many Sanders supporters won’t vote for Clinton if she wins the nomination. I know I will not vote for Sanders if it turns out that he wins the nomination. I will vote for Clinton as a write in. And frankly I don’t care if Trump becomes president because I think Sanders would be so ineffective that it wouldn’t make much of a difference. He’s been a do nothing member of Congress for decades.

          • KSmiley

            That is totally false. Bernie has a stellar record of introducing good bills in congress and getting them passed. He has worked well across the isle.

          • Tintern

            Such as?

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Read up, fuckface. TV ain’t gonna cut it.. We can’t do everything for you.

          • trenaherringtonchapman

            You can’t do anything for us. In fact, if it weren’t for insults, you would have absolutely no argument. Dismissed.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            You get your worth, exactly. Not a millimeter more BTW, you dismissed me but you keep talking to me. This is not lonely hearts. Fuck off and get a hobby. #We got this #BernieOrBust

          • MrsRealism

            LOL Not at all. He’s just like Ron Paul, Doctor NO.

          • trenaherringtonchapman

            Name one bill that didn’t simply rename a post office.

          • Terri

            You are so wrong. Smiley

          • Nate Glenn

            You’ll HAVE to write in clinton, and that’s perfectly ok, it’s your vote, and far be it from me to tell you how to vote. What you’re saying about Bernie is totally false, but you certainly can write in your corporate shill if you want and that’s your business. I’ll be darkening the circle next to Bernie’s name.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Tint, I couldn’t possibly care less than I do right….now.

          • Tintern

            Huzzah or something.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Yes, Taint…whatever you say. Now, take your meds.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            I couldn’t give a smaller fuck than I do, right now. Incredible how you think you’re important. Delusional, much? (This is called a rhetorical question. No need to answer. Refer to first line. 🙂

          • Terri

            I’m with you, Bernie knows nothing how to run a country. I will not vote for Bernie either.

          • Terri

            I agree when Bernie doesn’t win he whines. I read where only 20% of Bernie supporters will vote for Trump, she doesn’t need them. Let them go ahead just proves they weren’t dems to begin with and don’t care about the country. Bernie should get his act together and bring the party together instead of dividing it, he knows he doesn’t have a chance. He’s no better than the rest of them, sinking in the mud.

          • Anne

            Oh yes I am a dimwit. Great use of the English language. It is my opinion that, yes, he has baggage that has yet to be revealed to the general electorate.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Dear, I speak 5 languages of which, English, is my 3rd. One who doesn’t have full command of her one native language should not throw stones…unless, they be commas after “oh” and “yes”.

            Seeing your lack of competence in something innate to you and your high capacity for hypocrisy, I’d leave your comment, here, and forget about it. You have proven yourself a fool.

          • Anne

            Oh my gosh!!! I left a comma out. Im such a fool! What an embarrassment. How will I ever live through this? Nooooooo! Say it ain’t so Sunday. Say .. it…ain’t so. *sniffing*

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Idiot.

          • Anne

            Do not be so hard on yourself Sunday Gardenia. You cannot help it.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Said the kettle to the tea pot.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            No, dear, you cannot.

          • HillaryRodman Clinton

            just ignore her, she is incompetent and a paid hillary shill.

          • annie123

            Sunday Gardenia…on the comment boards…being critical of punctuation is the last refuge of those without an argument worth noting.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            On the comment boards of which you are queen?

          • Victor M.

            Speaking of throwing stones, it is common practice for periods to go inside quotation marks in the US. If you’re from the UK you ought to use a single inverted comma, not two.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Since I’m not a Brit and don’t give a fuck about a Brit, I would say take that extra apostrophe and stick it up you ass! Not arse, ASS. 🙂

          • Nicole Larish Volk

            lol…oh god, still laughing
            …that’ll be a short read

          • HillaryRodman Clinton

            hahaha yet to be revealed?! what are you smoking?! there is no baggage and nothing has been revealed. on the contrary hillary clinton has been in the public eye and has a lot of scandal and investigations against not only herself but bill clinton, and the clinton foundation which still received millions of dollars in donations from dictatorships like saudi arabia and in turn coincidentally receive millions of dollars worth of arms deal packages when hillary was secretary of state. do your research, because clearly you haven’t done any. as someone that would probably vote in hillary despite all the baggage she has, its a shame many people are not politically awakened. low information voters jeeeeesh… so sad. hillary clinton IS better than trump even when you take all the baggage and scandal that clinton has into account. depressing we can’t have better candidates in the democratic party….

          • Terri

            where do you get your news from Fox news. Read up on the truth instead of repeating garbage

          • Terri

            You are right, even his wife comes with baggage. Bernie has no funds he is staying in the race because he needs the money to live on. It’s sad, he knows he can’t win, yet he’s still taking money. I read where he splurges on airlines and other stuff. He won’t hand in his taxes. He only did 2014. What is he hiding.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Nobody gives a flyin’ fuck about your opinion, as you’ve come to find out.

          • This guy

            There’s that Clinton projection again. He is famous for flying coach; there is even a picture campaign from Berners to click and post a selfie with him in coach. You are probably a David Brock paid troll. It’s a darn shame I can almost never tell if I’m talking to a real person or a paid online message poster(propagandist.)

          • MrsRealism

            Just you wait! He has not been vetted yet.

          • Sunday Gardénia

            LoL, are you for real? 40 years in politics, you kumquat! Long been vetted. Vet this!

          • MrsRealism

            Oh right, of course! Because once you’ve been a career politician, nobody will question your credentials when you decide you want to be president. LOL Just wait!

          • Sunday Gardénia

            Just wait, kumquat. On to the convention! Your wartime criminal will NEVER see office. Believe that!

          • trenaherringtonchapman

            You’re a great one for calling people names. But, it seems that’s the extent of your political rhetoric. Just like Bernie, you’re an empty vessel.

          • trenaherringtonchapman

            He hasn’t been vetted. THAT’S a fact. Running against no one in Vermont doesn’t count as being vetted. He’s an inept, whining old hippie who isn’t suited to running the country.

          • JLo

            The Koch bros. Karl Rove are in bed with the Clintonites too. You obviously don’t know anything about Sen. Sanders. Even your SHE-HERO wouldn’t ever allege that. Everyone in the know regarding DC politicians knows how honest Sanders is. Why ask A LOT OF republican congress men/women how they feel about Sanders, then ask them how they feel about Clinton…buuuuaaaaaah!

          • Nate Glenn

            What are you basing that on, that she’s more electable? That he’s progressive and the koch brothers don’t like Clinton?! It seems to me that you are discounting real and consistent polling data, in favor of your own baseless suppositions. If the polls don’t mean anything, then your opinions mean far less. Clinton has a freight train worth of baggage, she is a right wing, corrupt politician, who regularly lies and changes positions, to suit whatever room she’s in, and she’s responsible for helping deregulate wall street, for NAFTA, for the TPP, for mass incarceration, and is being bribed by private prisons, big oil, and monsanto. Furthermore, she has no ability to draw crowds like Bernie does, and she has no enthusiasm behind her corrupt, establishment campaign, and if that wasn’t enough, she is openly working with DWS to rig this primary, and still not doing that great. If you call yourself a democrat, and you support her, then you should be ashamed of yourself.

          • Anne

            The Kochs and Rove do not like Clinton, but they also perceive Sanders as much easier to beat because he is perceived too far to the left. I know that you guys are in your own Bernie bubble and aren’t too aware of the general electorate, but millions more people have voted for Hillary in the Democrat primary, so even among Dems she is more electable, let alone the general electorate. She is not right wing, nore is she corrupt. But you have as well as many of your ignorant bros have proven that the money the right has spent was spent well. She is the only democrat in this race. However, I, like any right thinking progressive, like Bernie just fine. I just think he is too left, too much of a purist and narcissist and will set us back very far. I am not as easily swayed by lies and propaganda as you or your young friends.

          • Nate Glenn

            You’re no progressive, and you’re not as aware as you think you are. I mean, you really seem to be putting the truth on it’s head here, hillary has exactly zero appeal among independents, and bernie has captured the independent vote! She has about a -20 approval rating and bernie has a +11, the best in the race! My “young friends” (I mean seriously, are you unaware that you’re almost quoting emperor palpatine from “star wars” here?) aren’t the ones lying and propagandizing, the last I checked, clinton was lying about bernie’s record in all sorts of ways, even in debates, and even after her claims were proven to be false by fact checkers!!! She repeated claims that had already been debunked! If you’re progressive, you can’t possibly be supporting a candidate who is openly taking bribes from the major moneyed interests that are actively destroying our society right now, and also demonizing iran, pushing for war with all sorts of countries that pose us no threat, talking about getting even more chummy with an israeli regime that is extreme right wing, driven by a genocidal settler movement that is right now rampaging through the streets attacking african migrants and writing “arabs to the gas chambers” on the homes of palestinians! You can’t call yourself a progressive if you support that, while mouthing the words of the bad guy from star wars.

          • Anne

            Dear, you have no idea who I am what I believe. We haven’t actually discussed any issues here. You mistake opinions for fact and are useless in a conversation with any meaning. You are clearly delusional and will no longer take the time to read your posts.

          • Nate Glenn

            Ok, but you really crack me up, talking about my “young friends”, I really did picture the evil emperor for a second there, because guess what? Your candidate is representing the empire, all of the big banks and military contractors are also bringing you the news every night, and they are BIG BIG BIG on hillary, and in fact, I believe it was CNN that donated millions of dollars to her campaign while they were trying to pretend that bernie isn’t running. So you think that all of this is an “opinion”? No, opinion is when you say that hillary is more popular with independents when every metric we have proves that to be false and laughably so.

          • Anne

            I didnt actually say that. However, I do believe most moderate independents do support her. At least over Bernie or the clown car on the right. He gets independents that are generally more to the left or are new voters. A lot of this on either end is supposition. it is an opinion that she is more electable. I, as well as many other, believe he is too left and will be destroyed the the Repubs. But you are seriously way to out of it to have a rational convo with. Young friends, wow, no one has ever said that before. yikes.

          • Nate Glenn

            Context, context, when you’re arguing for the establishment, and you talk about my “young friends”, you really are forcing the mental imagery on me, and the point is, the DNC has run a scam on you, they’ve got you bamboozled, and I’m telling you the ugly truth about the corrupt system that hillary works for and represents with a machiavellian detachment that would make machiavelli proud. She don’t give a crap about you as long as you keep on voting for her out of fear or delusion, and she’ll crush the next union that pops up at walmart to end the discrimination against women, she’ll support the next coup in latin america to bring in a gang of oligarchs, like the gang she helped to depose Manuel Zalaya in honduras that just last week murdered to indigenous activists in their homes. Those people were murdered by paid thugs on the payroll of oligarchs that hillary clinton helped into power so they could rape and pillage the land for corporate profit and annihilate native american societies in the process. But I digress, the main point I want to make is that you are seriously deluded if you think that independents or republicans will ever vote for hillary, it won’t happen, I know a lot of conservatives, and do you want to know the sum total of democrats that they will not curse and spit at you if you mention their names? Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Those two can get republican votes, and they can clean up with independents. Republicans and independents despise hillary with a white hot burning passion, and some democrats do as well, because of her duplicity and corruption and shilling for corporations and disastrous trade deals that have wrecked the lives of workers in this country to make her friends at the country club a little richer.

          • Anne

            Pretty sire when youve been in government longer than my lifetime youare the establishment as Bernie is. Now he did get some great political operatives to spin his campaign. The irony in it is priceless.

          • Nate Glenn

            That must be the reason that unlike Hillary, he has no super PAC and takes no money from corporations, but funds his campaign entirely on small donations. It must be the reason why the entire democratic party is working against him, he’s “establishment”, must be why the media constantly asserts that he can’t win, he’s “establishment”.

          • Anne

            Awww that is so cute! You just believe what you are told. He has taken money from Corps like Google and Microsoft to name just a couple. He used to co host a swanky fundraising even every year in the Hamptons. He also benefits from Super Pacs. You do understand that Super Pacs work outside of the campaign, right? He has had rallies thrown for him and even has a Super Pac that was formed by former campaign officials in Alaska. Not to mention the Super Pacs that ran ads for him in FL and Iowa by Rove and teh Kochs. Must be nice to ride the wave of the money, but have so many people hoodwinked you dont have to take any accountability! Must be nice. I like that he is trying to work out of the current system, which sucks, but he is still a party to it. Read the FEC filings. Also, he is the establishment, but most who have worked with him do not think he would be a good president. I also do not know what media you watch but most say he has a chance, but because of proportional delegates it would be hard. Which is true. Oh those facts, they get in the way of an agenda every time.

          • Nate Glenn

            Don’t make me laugh, you’re trying to tell me that the koch brothers ran ads for him and that’s his fault? Nonsense, and let’s just repeat the truth shall we, he has no super pac, and he doesn’t take money from big corporations, and his average contribution is 27 dollars! That is a fact, and you can’t prove otherwise. You simply believe whatever slanders you read about him in the mainstream media that is constantly working to prevent him from winning because they are major corporations and he is promising to regulate them! You might want to think about this a little bit and contemplate what it means.

          • Anne

            Again reading things that arent there. get your eyes checked sir. My point was that he has benefited from more Super Pac money than anyone. No one controls teh Super Pacs. It is political propaganda that he runs as this pure politician. He could disavow it. But he chooses to ride the wave instead. Oh such integrity!

          • Nate Glenn

            And again you’re talking nonsense. If you’re saying Bernie Sanders is taking more super pac money and more corporate money than Hillary Clinton you’re making a fool of yourself, most especially because he DOES NOT take corporate money, and has an average contribution of 27 dollars. Clinton is right now hosting dinners where you have to pay 350,000 dollars just to attend.

          • Anne

            Oh sweet Jesus. That is not what I said. I said he took corporate money, as he has before, not MORE. I even said I like what he is trying to do. He also doesnt have people spending billions against him, yet. Easier for him to take less money, but still a good, positive talking point. If you look at the FEC filings you will see that the average donation is low, because people will give several in a row. The average donor give much more that 27. That is what we call politicised for his benefit. Just look at the FEC filings. Its all there. I also didnt say he took Super Pac money, most Super Pacs are their own entities, so you dont take from them, they just do things in support of you. Like the Super Pacs and Move on Billionaires who have thrown rallies for him. Again this is public information.

          • Nate Glenn

            Then you have no argument. Clinton IS taking corporate money, to run her campaign, and Clinton DOES have a super pac. Sanders is running his campaign based on small individual donations, and is not responsible for anything the koch brothers may or may not do. So there went your entire argument, right out the window.

          • Anne

            Honey child, its not just the Kochs. He could disavow, but of corse he wont. Again, one doesnt take SP money, it is used for your benfit. He has to keep everything very simple for his horde. I again applaud him for what he is doing. However, I am a pragmatist and while i do not like how politics is run these days unfortunately most people have to play the game in some way or another. Sanders has, but to a smaller extent. He was lucky to be able to ride the wave of teh Kochs and the Rove camps.

          • Nate Glenn

            So you’re saying the koch brothers ran ads for Bernie Sanders, and now because according to you he didn’t disavow those ads, somehow that makes him like Clinton? That’s preposterous.

          • Anne

            OMG. I did not say that. They are very different. I was not comparing the two, dingus, I was stating facts about your candidate. But I must get off this hamster wheel now, good day my soft sculled friend.

            But still, like dust, I’ll rise. – Maya Angelou 2008, dedicated to HRC.

          • Nate Glenn

            Ah, a poem, well I guess that makes it ok that she took over a hundred million from crooked bankers, it’s ok that she sat on the board of walmart and crushed unions, it’s ok that she prevented haiti from instituting a 61 cent minimum wage, it’s ok that she lies and says that she’s against the TPP that she helped write and which legalizes slavery and makes drugs too expensive for poor people, all of that is the truth, not lies, but it’s ok, if angelou wrote her a poem while she was beginning mass incarceration, telling people that black kids are super predators who need to be brought to heel, destroying welfare, and shipping american jobs overseas. All of that is ok because according to you, maya angelou wrote her poems for HRC!

          • Anne

            Being cloise minded and only accepting your own opinion as acceptable is not progressive dear. This poem is meant for you and all of the others who continue to trash and degrade one of the greatest women in American History. For a so called progressive liberal, I am a little surprised art doesnt mean anything to you.

          • Nate Glenn

            Nonsense, I don’t vote based on maya angelou’s poems if they’re dedicated to a goldwater girl who takes money from private prisons, and helped walmart to discriminate against women for years. Maybe you should just research the issues a little bit more instead of just voting based on how maya dedicated a poem?

          • Anne

            lol, no one said to vote for her because of a poem. I know normal people who are voting for Bernie. The poem was in reference to your lies and propaganda. You Bernie folks like to put a lot of assumptions behind other peoples words.

          • Nate Glenn

            I didn’t lie, I told the truth about hillary, and you countered by asserting that maya angelou wrote a poem and dedicated it to hillary. That seems to be the only way you can defend her at this point, from what I assure you are not lies but simply true statements about hillary’s history that you can look up at any time if you’re interested.

          • Anne

            You spewed propaganda. Simplifying very complicated facts. The bots like to do that. If i kill someone in self defense, i am in fact a murderer but leaving out self defense uses that fact to imply something evil. Hillary is amazing.the trophy generation just doesn’t get it yet.

          • Nate Glenn

            I spewed the truth, and propaganda is a neutral term it simply means promoting a message. My message is that hillary is a corrupt, establishment politician who is more interested in her own power and wealth than in helping poor people and that is borne out by her long history. I remember the clintons very well, I remember when they deregulated wall street, I said to myself then that they were fools and they would cause another crash, but I was wrong, they weren’t fools, they knew what they were doing and didn’t care if there was a crash because they were getting rich. I remember all the “tough on crime” nonsense, the escalation of the war on drugs that began the era of mass incarceration, I remember NAFTA, that killed american jobs and destroyed the poor people of mexico as well, and I understand very well the differences that have always existed between sanders and clinton. Sanders is a social justice warrior, you can scoff at that and mock him or call him a hippy, but you can’t deny what he is, and that is an idealistic person who wants to change this country for the better. He is running not to get rich, or to wield power, but to fulfill his own idealistic vision of justice and fairness, and to restore this country to what he believes it should be, namely a democracy with equal opportunity for all. Clinton wants to be president for her own benefit, because she wants the power and wealth and prestige she knows it will bring. She is perfectly willing to cozy up to extreme right wing likudniks that are committing horrific crimes against humanity to make that happen, and possibly doesn’t even see anything wrong with that. She plans on making a small number of people far richer and more powerful, and it doesn’t matter at all what happens to you or anybody else, unless you’re one of those people at her cocktail parties, and from the way you speak, that seems to be a possibility. She will pass the TPP, and what that will do is end american sovereignty and give absolute power to transnational corporations, who will overrule our laws in corporate 3 person tribunals, with no appeal possible, these are tribunals that you or I have no access to of course, and the only criteria is, does a given law impact expected corporate profits? Well if it does, it has to be over ruled or at the very least the national, state, or local government is liable to give said corporations the millions or billions of dollars it was expecting to make! In other words, say good bye to climate legislation, hello to runaway global warming, good bye to child labor laws, hello to sweat shops and industrial waste in the streets! You may want to regulate monsanto, but can you afford it, in your little town? Can you pay monsanto whatever they demand so that you can limit the amount of chemicals they dump in your water? The answer is NO, you can’t. But you will see that clearly enough once your corporate puppet is in office, don’t take my word for it, just learn from bitter experience.

          • Robin Salvadori Allison

            “The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 passed the House just one week after Sanders made his impassioned speech, and Sanders voted for it. That act called for expanding the application of the death penalty on many more crimes, including large-scale drug trafficking. It also included a federal version of the “three strikes law,” requiring a mandatory life sentence for anyone convicted of a third serious crime.

            That version of the bill ultimately didn’t become law, but instead a similar bill, the Omnibus Crime Bill, which not only expanded the death penalty but also decreased the minimum age for minors to be tried as adults, passed the House, once again with Sanders’ vote, and became law.”

            And you were saying about Bill Clinton’s “tough on crime” null shit?

          • Nate Glenn

            Are you serious? You’re trying to blame Bernie Sanders for the crime bills that the clintons pushed through congress in the 1990’s?! These are bills that were pushed strongly by hillary clinton, when she was calling black kids “super predators”, and that’s just one small bit of hillary’s legacy. The clintons not only pushed the crime bills, but they also gutted welfare, and were a major factor in the rise of mass incarceration, not to mention bank deregulation, media consolidation, and escalating wars! You’re going to blame Bernie Sanders for that while also pretending Hillary had nothing to do with it?! Ha! “null shit” indeed.

          • sarahm59

            Are you seriously using her support of Goldwater when she was a teenager against her? I’m a Sanders supporter but that’s just pure silliness.

          • Nate Glenn

            She said as recently as the nineties that she was proud of her days as a goldwater girl. When she was doing that, Bernie Sanders was chaining himself to people of color, being arrested to fight against segregation. Furthermore, hillary participated in all of the moral panics over drugs and crime in the 90’s and beyond that grew out of that prejudice and bigotry of the old days. Hillary and Bill were never leftists, and never true friends of people of color, the democratic party just moved right, partly because of their actions.

          • Jackp

            Nate Glenn is not closed minded. He is stating the facts. The list of controversies are endless with Hillary even from the start when she got fired from the Nixon’s judicial committee for lying back in 1972!!! Anyone that does their research cannot with a clear conscience vote for this mean and ugly lady that reveres in corrupt dealing for $$$$$.

          • Anne

            Right again you are rewarding 30 years of republican propaganda. Good for you! Hillary Clinton has done more for us all than all of the other candidates combined. That is why the Kochs and Rove spend billions aganst her. You are only buying into it because it works tawords the agenda Bernie is now pushing. The irony in the Bernie campaign is incredible.

          • Nate Glenn

            She hasn’t done anything for you unless you’re a major corporation. She is on the payroll of private prisons, monsanto, the big banks, and oil companies, and unless you’re one of those corporations, then she hasn’t done anything for you.

          • Anne

            LOL. You do know that Tad Divine was an attorney for Monsanto, right? She also gave the private prison donations to charity lol. Those were donations, not payroll! She no longer accepts it. She is the most admired woman in the world. Had the 11th most liberal voting record in the US senate when she was there. She fought for healthcare in the 90s and ended up getting 8 million children health care who did not have it yet. Made Universal healthcare a topic. She started a ambassadorship for women issues in the state department. She spoke out against the infraction of gay rights and the abuse of gay people around the world most notably in Uganda. She made sure to get care for 911 first responders. She started a pre-k program in Arkansas that spread to 9 states and is still in use 30 plus years later. Her first job out of law school was working for the Childrens defense fund, one project was investigating juveniles put into adult jails. After that she volunteered to get minorities registered to vote in texas. She helped expand family leave for military. Negotiated a cease fire between Israel and Hammas. She repaired the bad rep of the US abroad after the Bush years. When she was a Senator she saved an internship for at least one child from the foster care system, Bernie didnt even have any minorities on his. She was an advocate for children in foster care as first lady and worked with republican senators on that issue. I could go on and on. She has done a lot, mostly for people who dont even know she did, because she is a real servant and advocate, not just a blow hard. Propaganda has really done a number on you.

          • Nate Glenn

            Wow, funny you talk about propaganda, that is an impressive amount of propaganda you are spewing there, you seem to be well versed on every detail of clinton’s career, yet you have no knowledge or interest in all of the horrible things she has done or supported or contributed to! I would expect no less from one of her hired public relations flacks, so maybe if you’re not already employed by her, you should give her a call and apply! You’re talking about a woman who campaigned for barry goldwater, a segregationist, and since then has supported mass incarceration, private prisons, bank deregulation, trade deals that destroyed american jobs, and every war that was dreamed of by either the bushes or netanyahu! By contrast Bernie Sanders was fighting against all of the things that she pushed, all of the things that resulted in extreme wealth inequality and catastrophic wars that destroyed millions of lives, and oh yeah, she negotiated a ceasefire between her right wing israeli buddies and the people they are destroying?! Good for her! (if true) and also, she she was an advocate for foster care?! Outstanding, but hardly makes up for the millions of lives she wrecked, here and abroad.

          • Anne

            Campaigned for Goldwater. Lol when you mention that your entire argument goes to s. You do know that their voting records aligned 93% of the time? Right? You also do know that the crime bill was her husbands and Bernie voted for it, right? He also voted for the 2000 bill that deregulated. There are actual facts out there. Find them.

          • Nate Glenn

            Yes, clinton distorted Bernie’s record as well, and the fact checkers debunked it. You are repeating lies that Clinton told about bernie that were debunked, then she repeated them again! Good job! When I talk about hillary being a goldwater girl, I’m destroying YOUR argument, and your come back is to repeat distortions that hillary told you.

          • Anne

            Like what? I didn’t distort anything. I could, very easily being up things that he voted against that are not very progressive, but i do not. I obviously know he is progressive. He is a purist which i think could do more good in the Senate, a Pres has to collaborate. But thats my opinion. You are not destroying anyone’s argument dear boy. You just sound stupid. Who cares what she did at 17. Elizabeth Warren was a repub like in the 90s. No one cares, you just sound ignorant and petty.

          • Nate Glenn

            Wow, so we’re down to the school yard insults now, are we? Look, Sanders has a consistent record of fighting for the less advantaged, he has consistently been on the right side of every issue, but you can misrepresent votes quite easily and it is a favorite way of attacking people on spurious grounds in every debate, you can pick out a vote and make it sound like someone is for something they are actually against. Again, it’s an old trick and nothing but deception in most cases. Clinton for instance said that Sanders voted against the auto bailout, because the bill that he voted against eventually was used for that, but when he voted against it, it was just a bailout of big banks, and the auto bailout was added later. You want to engage in that sort of tactic, go right ahead, but you can’t deceive anyone who is aware of his record.

          • Robin Salvadori Allison

            Uh, no. The bill he voted against was the second set of funding for TARP, which included the auto bailout. He had already voted against the main TARP bill. He made the decision that letting the auto industry die was worth it if it meant the big banks didn’t get money too. Dangerous when purity of ideology- no money for banks, let them fail no matter what- trumps 100s of thousands of jobs being lost when we were already losing almost a million jobs a month. He decided that those jobs were not as important as sending a message to the banksters.
            Sanders did the same thing with the bankruptcy bill- says Hillary voted for it. But she didn’t vote for the House version, refused to until it was amended with some protections added. So yes, she voted for the Senate version. Then it went to conference, and the last incarnation showed up with the Senate amendments stripped back out. Hillary says she wouldn’t have voted for it, but the point it moot, she was with Bill in the hospital when the Senate passed it. So while she voted for a version of the bill, she did not vote for the one that passed. Isn’t that Bernie’s excuse? He was for the Auto Bailout as a separate bill, but once it was added with other bail outs he wasn’t for it.
            How about Crime bills?
            “The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 passed the House just one week after Sanders made his impassioned speech, and Sanders voted for it. That act called for expanding the application of the death penalty on many more crimes, including large-scale drug trafficking. It also included a federal version of the “three strikes law,” requiring a mandatory life sentence for anyone convicted of a third serious crime.

            That version of the bill ultimately didn’t become law, but instead a similar bill, the Omnibus Crime Bill, which not only expanded the death penalty but also decreased the minimum age for minors to be tried as adults, passed the House, once again with Sanders’ vote, and became law.”

          • Nate Glenn

            Uh, no, when he voted against tarp, it did not include auto bailouts, that came later. You are trying to condemn Sanders based on votes you don’t actually understand, and you’re trying to defend clinton, whose voting record is clear and damning. Sanders has a long and consistent record of voting in the best interests of his constituents and the working class and poor, and clinton has a long history of being paid millions of dollars by special interests and working for them regardless of how it effects the working class and the poor. You seem to be trying to flip reality on it’s head and pretend that Bernie is the one fighting against working people, whereas hillary, well hillary is the good guy! She never meant to vote for anything bad, honest! It’s laughable and preposterous if you just look at the current reality, hillary is taking money from big banks, from monsanto, from big oil, and private prisons, and Bernie is not. Hillary reluctantly agreed to a minimum wage of 12 an hour, Bernie is fighting for 15, Hillary recently came around on gay marriage, Bernie was there all along, Hillary voted for the iraq war Bernie voted against it, Hillary helped draft the TPP, Bernie is fighting against it, Hillary supported the coup against Manuel Zalaya that resulted in brutal murders of indigenous activists attempting to save their society from complete eradication in the name of corporate profit, and Bernie has always spoke out against the US fomenting coups in other countries, supporting dictatorships, etc. I could go on and on all day long about the contrast between Hillary’s record and Bernie’s record, and you can pick out a few votes that Bernie made, that make him look bad if you don’t understand the full context of the situation and the nature of the bills he is voting for or against and why. For instance you can pretend that Bernie is against immigrants because he voted against an immigration bill, but in fact that bill included provisions that would have caused immigrants to be exploited and turned into virtual slaves, and it was not only opposed by Bernie, but also by many immigrant rights advocates as well.

      Oh, come on. Bernie is only 5 years older than HRC and is in MUCH better health. 🙂 And polls have shown over and over that people are much more educated about ‘socialsim’ than not and that they understand also that ‘democratic socialism’, which is what Bernie is all about, is already very much a part of our government (medicare, social security, police, firemen, public libraries, national parks, post offices, ours federal highways and bridges, and oh, the list goes on! They understand (and if they don’t, they will be educated along the way) that many of Bernie’s ideals/platform mirror FDR’s, who remains one of our countries most effective and popular presidents of all time. It’s Hillary who they have so much ammo to use against. She is reviled and distrusted, not only by republicans, but also independents, greens, libertarians and many, many progressive democrats.

        They will crush him with propaganda. Are you kidding? I can see the hammar and sickle now. The majority of Americans are not very informed.

Did you know that his wife gets paid commission from a deal he made to dump nuclear waste in TX. Do you know about the loan fraud they are currently under for the school they tried to start in Vermont? Do you know about the FEC investigation into the 300,000 donations from a single source in D.C. that added up to 10 million dollars? Did you know that while he paid his staff under 15 dollars an hour, one of his top advisers is paid 800,000 a month? Oh the list goes on and on and on. No, he hasn’t been vetted at all. And republicans aren’t gonna hold back like democrats have because he hold his young voters over their heads.

            I will tell you I don’t like him anymore. and, I will tell you I don’t trust him. He is lying to his people; he cannot get done what he is preaching.

            Surprisingly a Bernie supporter is simplifying a very complicated issue to fit their own agenda. Not surprisingly. Lol. I think many people believe what they hear first. I think many people believe what they have heard over and over and without due time to reflect they will go with the alternative. I personally think he’d be a joke. But that’s just me.

          • Mirnita

            No, Anne…It’s not just you. There are many of us who feel the way you do. I have defended Bern, even though I have always planned to vote for Hillary Clinton. I defended him because I genuinely thought he was a good man. However, as soon as he started losing, he lost his mind..and my respect, which he had not really earned; I gave it, hoping he wouldn’t prove me wrong….AND HE DID!! Hillary <3 Clinton for President of the United States!

          • Mehryar KeShavarz

            you’re funny…. not really…. you’re just a bad joke that the universe is making in this comment section. [big sigh]

          • Anne

            huh?

          • me

            Anne is correct. Some people forget how the Republican Attack Machine operates. And that the majority of this country are not lefties. From their FB feeds, people start thinking that everyone agrees with them.

        • Because rep’s love Hill, and she isn’t dealing with any scandals at all currently.. oh except email-gate, and voter-gate, and the fact that Bill Clinton called Obama’s legacy “awful” …there’s that.. https://pivotamerica.com/bill-clinton-slams-obamas-awful-legacy-campaign-rally/ — Know this you get None of Sanders supporters come November if that’s what you want keep on pushing for Hillary.

          • John Smith

            Now see, this is a PERFECT example of what we are talking about. He wasn’t talking about Obama. You just took a republican smear and propagated it across the internet. You are doing their job for them. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT BUSH!

          • Anne

            Yup! The baby Berns just repeat the smear campaigns.

          • Claudia Judd-Mcgrath

            I call my BS friends on this crap if they post it, I think most have blocked me but you know what? That means they weren’t my friend to begin with….I am just interested in vetting Bernie…I am from NE, was heavily involved in Democrat Party, he NEVER helped anyone but himself, he is running the sleaziest campaign I’ve ever seen from a Democrat….anyone care to show me the Anti Bernie ads? Anyone? Anyone? Ferris??? Cause there AREN”T any…she is a liar? Politifact says she is telling the truth more than any other candidate…stop listening to a guy who never had two cents to rub together then suddently has the money to run for President….this was done with BIG BIG money….please, think for yourselves and stop slavishly following a guy you probably never heard of a year ago…

          • thatswhatshesaid

            He is doing and has done absolutely no fundraising for down tickets dems. He does his thing and nothing else. Kinda stupid when he will need at least a Dem. Senate to even think of pushing through his over the Rainbow policies. I have started to believe that his run is a whole lot of ego, not much substance.

          • MrsRealism

            That’s what Bernbots do.

          • AvalonMoon

            You are right. If people would just watch the whole thing, they would see, as plain as the nose on their faces, that he was talking about BUSH! Some are just too lazy.

          • crackerb

            I could care less about Bernie supporters. They are all nasty and hateful

          • Roseanna Danza

            ^ That’s a pretty nasty, hateful accusation to make – about a whole lot of people.

          • crackerb

            Sorry but that has been my experience. …perhaps you haven’t experienced those remarks. Consider yourself lucky.

          • Anne

            Yes, they have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at her and she is still here. For 20 plus years she has been degraded and torn a part, so she is ready. Benghazi hearings and emails, all calculated moves to hurt her integrity, but they miscalculated, because people are over it. People are used to them coming after her. Bernie’s vetting will be brand new. He will be torn a part. He will be shown demonizing democrats, praising castro, sex essays, the oldest Pres in history, tax hikes. This is why Karl Rove and the Koch brothers are running ads against Hillary NOW. They want her to lose so they can face him.

          • Claudia Judd-Mcgrath

            ALLEGEDLY Karl Rove is related to Jeff Weaver’s wife, however I haven’t been able to prove it but follow the money, that I CAN prove….www.fec.gov has loads of public information…he is in DEEP Doo Doo with the feds and they have sent him a total of 135 pages of illegal contributions, way over individual limits while they stuff dark money in their accounts, even Bill Maher was in this dark con….

          • Roseanna Danza

            Aw, poor, poor Hillary! THIS tall glass of whine ^ IS HILARIOUS because your first post accused Bernie supporters of whining.

          • Anne

            Huh? I wasnt complaining I was stating a fact.

          • Michael

            How about her switch on the bankruptcy legislation? How about her switch on TPP? How about her switch on the pipeline? Can’t wait to see the SHTF when the Wiki Leaks material on her e-mails come out. She does it to herself. She is a power lust politician that only wants the presidency to complete her ego. She switches her stances to suit the political climate. It’s blatant, in your SNL face. She has proved time and time again that her constituents are the top 10%. She has no intentions of helping the middle class.

            The Republicans want to face HRC. They are counting on her dishonesty ratings to win the election. The vast majority of Americans do not trust or like her. The HRC bots are the exceptions. But what I gather, from many posts and personal conversations, they think its time for a woman to be POTUS! What a lousy reason to vote for the office.

          • Anne

            Right thats why Rove and Kochs are running ads against her now. Apparently 2.5 million more people trust her for President even in the face of the simplistic BS you and your co bots spew. Keep believeing propaganda. Smaht. I really dont care what you have to say ive heard it all. The people are still chosing Hillary.

          • Anne

            I like how you just slid in the sexist rhetoric. Lol. No one even mentioned that. Many people in this country love HRC. When she was SOS she had a very high approval rating. Then the repub slugs took their aim at her again, thanks for rewarding that. HRC is an amazing servant and will be an amazing Pres.

          • Yollie

            How about Bernie being an Independent running Democratic. False flagging. Won’t support blue if he loses. Bye Burn

          • Randy Bauer

            All the emails are out – you can read them if you want to do more than just make allusions to them. Interestingly, one political commentator who read them all became a Hillary convert as a result – they show a compassionate, caring side to her that the Republicans (and lately Bernie) choose to ignore.

          • Michael

            Caring and compassionate! You are delusional. Or maybe you are just part of the wealthy crowd she is caring and compassionate towards. Yeah, that’s it. You are part of the wealthy backers of your candidate. It makes sense.

            Its ok, I have a lot of Mormon friends here in AZ, if its Trump they will cross over that is enough to turn the Southwest blue, then there are the Republican women who pm me and yes I tell them, its OK to vote for Hillary….she will never let you down she is a hard worker and is a steady hand with foreign policy chops…..so if you decide to pout and sit it out there are people who wouldn’t dream of sitttng out an election and she is the lesser of two evils, simple as that….if you start throwing out emails, et al I know you are not a true Dem anyways so its doesn’t matter….Go to your corner with your rattle, we grown ups will take care of it so you don’t screw up our country!

          • MrsRealism

            Speaking of right wing nut jobs, you are parroting all their false talking points. Good job, you shill!
            And everyone with half a brain know that Clinton was talking about Dubya in that video,. If you really ARE this stupid, you should just become a republican.

          • ronifae

            Actually, Hillary said he was talking about Congress and their do-nothing strategy.

          • MrsRealism

            Oh did she now? Link, please.

          • AvalonMoon

            If you take the time, you will see that Bill Clinton said nothing of the sort. Please, pull up the ENTIRE interview. Gads, some people will NOT look into things that they see. How sad. And so far, most BS supporters that I have come into contact with are already saying they will let the Repubs win before they would vote for Hillary. Frankly, I think that is just plain stupid.

          • ronifae

            Reps love Hillary? Then why are they running ads in support of Sanders? See America Rising. There is no email-gate. The FBI has said they are not investigating her. Voter-gate? The Republican Maricopa county recorder has already accepted blame for that fiasco. Bill Clinton’s comment was aimed at the Republican House and Senate, not against Obama. (I suppose this will be deleted since I am responding to a mod.)

          • freakadazoo

            Republicans love Hillary? What are you talking about? How the hell have you missed the last 25 years of constant attacks against her? She is more their nightmare. A strong willed, intelligent and yes…ruthless female as President of their “good ol boy club.

        • Susan Piper

          If people where going to turn on him for being a socialist or old they would have done it by now. He has not hidden his socialism and they have eyes, they can see his age. And by the way, Hillary isn’t much younger, she uses more makeup.

          Bernie has the most consistent record in congress of supporting equal
          rights for everyone since the 1960’s. Hillary was a “Goldwater girl”.
          Since I can see you are too young to know who Goldwater was, he has a
          man who supported segregation of black and white schools. You don’t
          think that Trump could use that.

          If you haven’t noticed Trump is turning on the trade issue. Hillary has supported trade deals that put millions of people out of work. NAFTA,etc. Bernie was rather kind to her on theses. These deals are also environment killers. As you are young you do not understand that nothing makes people angrier than not being able to support themselves or their families. The economy has gotten better but people are working more hours for less due to these trade deals. This makes her HIGHLY Vulnerable.

          In 2008 the economy was devastated by Wall Street. I have worked for Wall Street and have a degree in Finance. I left because I felt they where destroying the economy for their own gain, most where despicable people. The Clinton’s worked with republicans and Wall Street to deregulate the industry so that the 2008 Financial Crisis could happen. The average American’s wealth took a dive because of this. Have you noticed how much money the Clinton’s got from Wall Street and how unwilling they are to regulate it? They made a great deal of money off of our pain. You don’t think Trump will exploit that.

          Hillary has a net un-favoribility rating in this country for very good reason. You seem to be forgetting that. I predict she will win, but because the DWS at the DNC poisoned the well by undermining Sanders campaign. and because Trump has an even bigger un-favoribility rating then she has.

          Please go ahead and make your case for Hillary but do not tell me that you are better informed then I am, your arguments don’t bear that out.

          • Anne

            Who are you? Being a Goldwater Girl in your teens hardly amounts to promoting Socialism and Fidel Castro. The reason it hasn’t been a problem is because it is the democratic nomination. I know people who are middle of the road that think it is absurd. lol. If you do not think it will be a problem you have Bernie colored glasses on. Hillary had an incredibly high approval rating when she was SOS the last couple of years of slimy slander has effect ed that. Yet, she is still getting MILLIONS more votes than Bernie. There is also a reason for that.

          • ronifae

            And Bernie supporters would love to have Warren run in his stead but fail to acknowledge that she was a Republican up to the mid-90s.

        • emmeeadora

          And the 60,000 + signers of a pledge to vote Bernie and only Bernie, along with the 70,000+ blue collar Democrats who have signed on for Trump because they don’t trust Hillary on trade or fracking makes it impossible for Hillary to win the general.

          • Anne

            60k? Nooooooo. Lol. I think you need more to get on the ballot in most states lol. Sour grapes.

        • Michael

          You are merely a person who wants to keep the corrupt system as it is. Nothing new here.

          • Anne

            Yeah, ok. If I wanted that I would elect Bernie, because he would be a disaster and liberalism would never see a day in the sun for 100 years after him.

          • Michael

            A Liberal, Moderate and Progressive walk into a bar. The bartender says ” Hello Hillary”. HRC A PROGRESSIVE! More like a neo-con.

          • Anne

            Right that is why Citizens United and Crossroads, the Kochs and Rove have literally paid 1 billion dollars to hurt her. Because she is a neo con. Only a very ignorant person would state that. In her final term as a Senator she was considered 70% more liberal than most Democrats and voted with Sanders 70% of the time, is he a neo con too? A true democrat and a pragmatic progressive would never say such things. Ridiculous. Sounds like sour grapes to me.

          • Michael

            I notice how the Trump belligerence and tendency towards name calling is alive and well with the HRC bots.

            HRC is the regime change queen. Don’t blame me for her positions.

            I am not a pragmatic progressive nor a democrat. I
            am an independent. My vote is the one that the candidates want. Yours is probably a party vote and always has been. And the biggest issue I have with HRC is her pragmatism. There will only be status quo with her. She claimed the same unicorn BS with Obama. She says it everyday. She wants to keep the status quo. Keep the government working for her wealthy friends and not the middle class. 343,000. for a plate! Yeah, she is for the working person. LOL!!

Grow up and read, learn, investigate….the info is out there just don’t wait for the right wing controlled MSM to hand spoon it to you…and yes I have links and the investigative journalism that I am making these statements from

        • Roseanna Danza

          You’re confusing labels with reality. Thank goodness Bernie has been an Indep. his whole life – or you wouldn’t be here trolling his success – he would still be a nobody, with less of a chance than Jill Stein. When people accuse her of not being a true Dem., they’re referring to her actions, not a label. Hillary takes millions from big banks and corporations, just like the Republican – that’s what they’re talking about, not labels that are, in this season, undergoing a change.

          • PlantJoySeeds

            Actually lots of politicians on both sides take huge donations from corporations. The lobbyist pad their campaigns and then they do their bidding. Are you people not paying attention? Read about Harry Reid in Nevada with the Casino lobbyists! This is one of Bernie’s main goals, to separate big money from politicians so that they are serving THE PEOPLE and not banks, wall street and corporations. The country cannot work for US until we are no longer an oligarchy.

    • Michael

      Vetted?Go to you tube. Search Bernie Sanders. Just because you are ill informed doesn’t mean he hasn’t been vetted. It just mean you don’t pay attention.

      • JR

        Watch TYT from last night! Video is literally embedded in the article.

        • MrsRealism

          PART of a video. If you really CARED, you could EASILY look up the full video on YouTube and see that Clinton was talking about Dubya, NOT Obama. Even BS himself was apparently too lazy or stupid to do that. He is UNFIT to lead America. Open your eyes.

      • Anne

        Yeah, uhm ok. I am talking about the attack machines that have been full force on HRC and Obama the last several years, not a few you tube vids or blogs. Ive seen all of the negative things about him, thats part of the reason I do not like him. I have seen his flip flops, his hypocrisy and his lies. My point is that unless you are a political wonk like me you would have to search for that stuff. If he were to win the nomination it will be out in full force.

        • Michael

          What lies are you referring to? Please offer them. What negative things do you refer to? Again, you keep this information all to yourself. It’s laughable that you are calling the Senator a hypocrite while backing HRC! Laughable! Don’t have to search very far for her hypocrisy. Just search you tube. She does it to herself every time she speaks.

          I will be waiting for your references to my questions.

          • Anne

            I think they have both been hypocritical thet are politicians. Ive listed his lies on this blog, the biased moderater took it down. Suffice to say a 35 year politician running as an outsider, a congressman there when single payer was denied is running one of the greatest political shams of my lifetime.

            What else are you expecting to get for free if Bernie wins?

          • Randy Bauer

            Free? This is the silliness that led President Obama’s chair of the council of economic advisers (i.e., one of the nation’s top economists) to refer to Bernie’s plans as akin to ‘magic flying puppies with winning lotto tickets tied to their collars.’ Yep, that’s just what we need in a President.

            Are you really as daft as you appear?
            All civilized nations all over the globe provide education to their citizens as WE USED TO DO – until Reagan came around with his “supply side – trickle down” and “Starve The Beast” pig-in-a-poke.

            Clinton and Obama are conservative GOP light politicians who do not want single payer or affordable education.

            Wake up!

            If Ecuador can offer free education , why can’t we?

            Oh yeah, we cannot tax the rich – that would be “punishment”…

It wasn’t before then. The economy has been better, gas is lower, unemployment is down, the deficit has been reduced but so far Obama was a horrible President? And Clinton has announced she would be taxing the rich besides. But you can bet the GOP will never even say that let alone do it.

          • patri domino

            WHAT A PAID BULLSHITTER…LOL. THIS SITE IS A FRAUD RUN BY THE GOP. “backcheck” some of these people.

          • pitman45

            So you’re not a Democrat. Bernie’s not a Democrat but he leeches off the Democratic Party criticizing the Democrats and President Obama, going so far as wanting President Obama to have a primary challenger in the 2012 election. Yet he praises Fidel Castro and when asked about that recently, Bernie praised Castro even more.

          • PlantJoySeeds

            He stands for and fights for democratic values (that most establishment democrats have forgotten) and he works for the PEOPLE, unlike most establishment democrats who work with lobbyists for large corporations and industries. Come on! The Democratic party has abandoned doing what is best for it’s mere citizens. Not all, of course, but MOST. Bernie has caucused with the democrats and worked to pass some of the best legislation in decades for Veterans (for example).

          • Randy Bauer

            Yet the vast majority of liberal Democrats in the US Senate are supporting Hillary. Have you really bought this line that they are all ‘establishment’ pawns of lobbyists for large corporations and industries? It’s a lie. How about this one: Tom Harkin was a long-time liberal US Senator from Iowa. He was the sponsor of one of the great pieces of legislation for non-establishment people (the Americans with Disabilities Act). He is now retired – meaning he no longer is ‘beholden to the establishment.’ Who is this long-time liberal Senator supporting? Not Bernie – Hillary Clinton.

          • Reno Berkeley

      You clearly need to do some research on Sanders. If you don’t believe that the GOP would do exactly the same thing to Clinton, you’ve been living in a cave for the last 20 years. They hate her with the power of a thousand white-hot suns. Maybe you’re too young to remember the years during Bill Clinton’s administration?

      • Anne

        The point is that they have already done it to her, for 30 years. People have heard it all, they demonize her yet she is still getting more votes than anyone. His will be fresh and new and it would be a show.

          • PlantJoySeeds

            I have met many Republicans and Independents who say they will vote for Bernie, which only adds to his huge supporters. I bet you won’t find ANY Republicans or Independents who would vote for Clinton, lol. She is probably the most hated, most distrusted woman in the US.

            Clearly, you haven’t encountered enough actual conservative voters. #Fiorina2016Much? These people will eat their own children before they vote for a Clinton. The right DESPISES her and Bill. And if you think she’s any more apt to “get things done with moderation and pragmatism”, you have a short memory… as short as looking on TV and seeing how little Obama has gotten done by shifting far right from his original position to compromise, but still getting stonewalled by Mitch and the Grossly Overpaid Party.

        • PlantJoySeeds

          I still am not sure she won’t be indicted before the Democratic Convention in July.

          • ronifae

            For what?

        • J.G.

          She’s getting more votes than any of the Republicans because they have had 3-12 people splitting the votes, diminishing the number of votes each candidate is getting…so this argument is pathetic oversimplification.

    • Wow his age he’s 4 fucking years older than Clinton. 4 years and SHE is on blood thinners and has had MORE health issues… So age doesn’t mean anything here. Also it’s 2016 and more people approve of socialism than approve of our current congress.

      • mdbass201@aol.com

        Not when they going to use the term communist like Trump has been using lately

      • Anne

        I am not talking about what I think about his age or what you think, I am talking about what they would do to him. Its like talking to a rock on here. He would be the oldest President in history. He has an unkown quality, why some people like him, it is also why he would get torn to shreds.

        • Roseanna Danza

          People like Bernie because he has integrity, the very reason they do NOT like your candidate: she has none.

          • Anne

            Pretty ignorant comment. Thanks for rewarding 30 yrs of repub smear.

          • FrankSFO

            Anne, I don’t know how you put up with it. Everything you’re saying is absolutely true and what I’ve been saying for the past several months. But, I’m at a point that I just can’t deal with people who are so closed-minded, feeding off Republican lies, and gladly use misinformation as justification for their not voting for Hillary. They’re so set in their ways, and their ways and views are far superior than all others. We are the ones who are misinformed. We are the ones who are brainwashed We are the ones who sleep with corporate America. They can’t seem to get over the fact that Wall Street monies represent a single percentage of total donations. So how does that make her beholden to Wall Street? They’ve convinced themselves that Hillary’s policies and positions will change once she’s elected. How do you deal with people who think they have psychic abilities? When Hillary stepped down as Secretary, her favorability ratings were in the 60s. Thanks, no less to Republicans and lazy journalistic standards, they’ve managed to meet their goal of destroying Hillary’s image. Do people really think Hillary, who is concerned about her own legacy, is really going to step into office and turn around and screw the American public? There’s nothing in it for her to do that. She can rest comfortably and enjoy doting on her grandchildren. She’s looking to make a mark to her name. Getting into bed with Wall Street won’t achieve that. People need to get real! Jeez!

          • Merv

            FrankSFO – Hillary gets over 85% of all her funding from Wall St. Don’t kid yourself.

          • PlantJoySeeds

            Geez, you are the one who is being ignorant. I love (NOT) when a progressive points out Hillary’s MANY flaws, flubs and flip flops, other “liberals” claim we’re rewarding republican smears. THE TRUTH IS SIMPLY THE TRUTH, NO MATTER WHO IS TELLING IT. TAKE OFF YOUR BLINDERS. OMG. I’ve been a progressive democrat BEFORE YOU WERE IN DIAPERS. 🙂 Just because someone is a democratic politician doesn’t make them honest. Do you even read the newspapers or what progressives shows like Democracy Now on PBS, or Thom Hartmann or The Young Turks, or Lee Camp or ANYTHING that is NOT MainStreamMedia/corporate controlled media??? The real truth is out there if you’ll look outside the usual MSM sources.

          • MrsRealism

            If you cared about America, you would put your ideology aside and do some honest research Roeanna. You will find that Clinton has been a liberal AND a democrat for her entire adult life, and her many actions as a private citizen and in a volunteer capacity bear that out. She has many, many achievements geared toward the common good. A a politician, she simply continued her lifelong tradition of making America a better place to live in. Bernie just votes NO to everything that isn’t perfect and pure enough. . Scratch that, he didn’t even START voting until he was 40-something, and probably just to vote for himself, who is all BS really cares about anyway. He has a sketchy work history and if you call doing little to nothing integrity, I guess you’re right about that. Integrity? Sorry, but there’s nothing noble about seeing your values defeated because you preferred happy dreams to hard thinking about means and ends. Don’t let your idealism veer into destructive self-indulgence. There are people in this country who will suffer if Bernie is the nominee because he will LOSE and we’ll have some idiot wingnut instead. Can you live with that? Many of us cannot.

          • Manfred_J

            People such as you seem to be more interested in electing long-time members of the Democratic party as President than you are in making America the best place to live for the greatest number of people. And that means affording opportunity to more than those that have the money. It means an equal system of justice. A concentration on repairing our infrastructure. Affordable education and health care. Mrs. Clinton doesn’t care about any of this stuff. Her entire value system is focused on perpetuating the American Hegemon. Sanders is the candidate of the people. Clinton is the candidate of expansion.

          • Anne

            I am actually concerned with electing the best President, that would be HRC. She has done more for women children families and Bern has for anyone. Not close.

          • Manfred_J

            HRC is not the best candidate, and the issues you mentioned are not the most important ones facing America today even though they are important. If we, as voters, do not wrest control of the party from the wealthy donor class, we can expect things in this country to continue to get worse for middle and working-class Americans. The triangulation strategy that began in the ’90’s has run it’s course, much as the Republican’s trickle-down strategy of the ’80’s has. Yet each party continues to cling to their outdated theories of placation of wealth and eternal war. Your advocation of Hillary Clinton merely indicates to me that you are willing to live with more of the same troubles, or even expand them, that we have had since 9/11. Policies which artificially inflate the GDP while taking more and more from those that cannot afford it. In my opinion, you are allowing wedge issues and media opinion to cloud your judgment.

          • Anne

            You sound a little bit fascist here. Your backing of Sanders makes me question your realistic view of the world. I think Sanders would put us back decades. It is so funny that Sanders folks keep talking about the party of the people, when people are overwhelmingly supporting Clinton. She has been working hard for people her entire life.

          • Manfred_J

            I sound like a fascist to you? You sound like a zealot to me. I think I have a very realistic view of the world, in that incremental pragmatism is political code for allowing those who lack money and power to suffer in silence–but here’s a bone, be happy you’ve got that. Just what do you think HRC is going to do for this nation’s people? Send them off to fight more wars of profit for big corporations? Her recent speech to AIPAC was as chilling a call to give dictators military support as I’ve ever heard from a liberal candidate. Oh, except Assad–he has to go NOW. Hillary’s platform may give you, personally, what you want, but it isn’t great for the majority of Americans. I’ll grant you she’s better than the Republicans, though.

          • Anne

            A zealot? lol oh ok. So here is the thing we are in what is called a representative democracy. Where those Americans will chose who they think is best for them. I know novel idea! The dont need a patronizing schmuck to tell them what to think. That my dear is fascism.

          • MrsRealism

            What ON EARTH gives you that impression of where I stand? Here’s a tip for you: You are GROSSLY misinformed. I REPEAT: “You will find that Clinton has been a liberal AND a democrat for her entire adult life, and her many actions as a private citizen and in a volunteer capacity bear that out. She has many, many achievements geared toward the common good. A a politician, she simply continued her lifelong tradition of making America a better place to live in.” You said absolutely NOTHING to prove that untrue, and nothing to prove that Bernie can accomplish any of the things her claims to want. Mine is a statement full of truth. Party has nothing to do with it. I like the winner to be the one who is most qualified and most productive as a liberal..Hillary is both, hands down, without a doubt. Meanwhile, Bernie is all talk. Unless you’d care to point out the ways in which he has improved American lives… good luck with that.

          • Manfred_J

            Nothing you say in the above rant sounds like anything more than a Clinton groupie going off to me, one that gets most info from the MSM. Hillary is NOT a progressive, and she can only be called a liberal if you insert ‘neo’ in front of the word. As in, triangulating, pro-corporate, war hawk. If you think America is a better place to live in now than it was 20 years ago, you must have a hell of a good income. Most qualified doesn’t necessarily mean greatest name recognition, and having held a cabinet post doesn’t necessarily mean you were any good at it. In addition, most productive doesn’t mean that you conceded more often to special interests in return for money and privilege. Yours is a statement full of bull.

          • MrsRealism

            You’re wrong, but that’s not surprising. You don’t seem to know what Clinton wants, and you don’t seem to care that she’s the most liberal candidate with a shot at winning. I’m in it to win it, for all of us. I’m sorry that you are not.

          • Manfred_J

            It’s not surprising because I’m a man? Bullshit. And how do you know what Clinton wants, or how liberal she is? Are you her prophet? Does she speak to you as God does to Ted Cruz? This is not a Republican vs Democrat match race, where the winner takes all. It’s a chance to redirect our country’s priorities from corporate conquest to the People.

          • MrsRealism

            Because you’re a man? LOL! No, it’s not surprising because you’re a Berniebot, Hello???
            And no, she doesn’t speak to me. The thing is, I pay attention. And I have been doing so for decades. Her record is as close to perfect as any liberal will ever get. Sanders just votes no all the time because nothing passe his purity test. Here’s a clue for him and for you: Something is better than nothing. NOTHING does not help further progress, Not AT ALL. We always start with something. Not nothing. Bernie may as well be wRonG Paul for all the good he doesn’t do. And I expect him to do about a well in the presidential election as Paul always does too!

          • MrsRealism

            Not because you’re a man, Manfred, but because you’re a bernbot. And how do I know how Liberal Clinton is? Ummm, because I pay attention. You might want to try that some time. SMH

          • Manfred_J

            I am NOT a ‘bot.’ I support the candidate that I think gives us the best chance to survive as a democracy going forward. I respect your decision, but…

          • MrsRealism

            Well, he is an extremist who obviously can’t win, so that leaves zero chance of him changing anything. Of course we are going to survive a a democracy. Jeez

          • Manfred_J

            Bernie is not an extremist. The Democratic party has been moving to the right since the ’90’s. His policies are more closely related to FDR, whereas Hillary’s are of a triangulating type to bring in corporate support. IMO, this type of thing has run it’s course with the enactment of Citizen’s United and other pro-corporate laws. We are giving up citizen control of our representatives to big money. This has to end, or the party becomes little more than a racket–as the Republican party has been for years. Our country is at a crossroads. Failing infrastructure, poor and expensive education, rotten job availability, half our taxes spent on the military while people starve, homelessness. If you’re doing well, you probably don’t notice these things, but they’re there, I promise you.

          • MrsRealism

            NOT an extremist? LOL
            It would behoove you to pay more attention. This guy is no FDR. And we are not ‘at a crossroads’. Your guy maybe could have been helpful when Dubya was president. Where was he then? Where was the revolution? He couldn’t do it then and he can’t do it now. He’s just trying to suck up some money for retirement. Look at the guys record and tell me what’s to support.

          • Manfred_J

            I don’t know that it would behoove me (or you) to discuss this with you any more. You seem quite content with the way things are now, other than small tweaks here and there. More interested in social change within the context of the current set-up.

          • MrsRealism

            Muleheadednes i now integrity? Nah.

          I don’t like Bernie because he is ‘unknown’. I have been following him and progressive politicians like his twin (in beliefs) Liz Warren, for years. It’s true PROGRESSIVES we want, not a moderate/right-leaning, corporation-loving, HAWK, like Hillary.

    • If by vetted you mean a consistent 40+ year history beginning with video and photographic evidence of him willing to get arrested for his primary ethos (fighting for those less fortunate or disenfranchised due to a power structure) then you have that. He’s consistent. Research his positions on important civil rights and trade agreements. Google Hillary on the same. She’s been on the negative side of many issues where Bernie was far ahead of his time. If by baggage you mean 40+ years fighting for what you believe in your heart is right regardless of how popular it might be, well then that’s more morality than most of us. Bernie is NO sell out. Hillary can not make that claim. I trust the guy believing in ideals without monetary gain or power plays. We should elect ideas more than the body they live in. His ideas are crushing her with progressives and independents right now in the elections today. We shall see…

    When the author accuses Bill Clinton of obstructing voting in Massachusetts, you know he is a nut. He probably believes Clinton shot down TWA 800, and the Mossad was behind the 9-11 attacks. He just proves the left has radicals just like the right does. All these Sandernistas deserve a Republican President. They will lose their access to healthcare, and young women will not long have reproductive choice until they are wealthy. The minimum wage might even disappear, and the more wealthy among us will enjoy more tax cuts. They deserve that outcome, they really do.

        • Will Bloodworth

          Yet, I can’t accidentally click on an article without HRC supporters smack-talking Bernie and his supporters. Bernie’s people whine when they LOSE? HRC’s fans whine when they WIN. Why? My guess is as good as anyone’s. As for all this fear-mongering about “not voting for Hillary is the same as voting for Trump/conservative SCJs/the MFing Apocalypse” has to go.

          • Anne

            It is because every time a candidate endorses HRC they are magically and conveniently the evil establishment, because every time Bern loses the system is rigged! They cannot seam to understand that the people are voting for HRC. There is no congratulations or recognition of that and it is incredibly annoying.

          • AvalonMoon

            Did you really mean, “Fear mongering about, “If Hillary takes the nomination, I will not vote for her!”? Because that is what I keep seeing.

      • Daniel Tabor

        You know, I don’t know that that was a “Democrats only” polling place, in which case I’m relatively certain there were more Clinton supporters who didn’t get to vote while the line was blocked while they got to see AND MEET THE FORMER PRESIDENT, than there were Sanders supporters.

        I wouldn’t have minded waiting if I got to shake hands with Bill Clinton.

    • I’ll take it if it means all of you centrists leave the damn party and go over to the Republicans where you belong.

      • Anne

        I believe in a lot of what Bernie says. I am a progressive, but I think he would be a disaster as president. Just because someone says something i agree with doesnt mean I want them to have the most important job or one of in the world. It also doesnt make me a republican if I want to vote for the better, more moderate candidate.

          No, it doesn’t make you a Repub., but it does mean you’re NOT a progressive. Progressives are aware of the reality. You’re still playing silly games your TV tells you are real. A vote for Hillary is a vote for a Wall Street puppet. She doesn’t care about you.

          • Anne

            You are a classic unreasonable internet troll. Assuming things that you know absolutely nothing about. I believe Hillary is far and away the best candidate for president. I do not need to explain why to you. I am pragmatic enough to know life isn’t so simple.

      Actually according to the city and polling place he didn’t just “drop by,” people were told days in advance Bill would be at THAT particular polling place. He also didn’t “shut it down,” because of the announcement a lot of people showed up, but no one was kept from voting. Bernie has shown up at polling places too. A quick and easy search shows that. The difference is only bernie supporters howl about how unfair it all is and how only THEY are targeted by the “evil” establishment. I’d say it’s getting old… but it’s been pretty pathetic and old for a long time now.

  • JohnGaltQ

    Money won’t fix what is broken with Sanders. Selling to America what the Tea Party say about Hillary Clinton when you are down is to join them and choosing to use tools you know are lies.
    Sanders was doing well when he focused on the people and getting things done.
    This use of personal attacks, falling to the same level of the rest has turned off many of would be allies.
    How much farther will he fall?

    • Mirko Schreiber

      Which personal attack specifically do you refer to? I´d be especcially interested in those lies you talk about.

    • Michael

      Speaking the facts about HRC are not personal attacks. If you have been paying attention since last summer, HRC has changed her position to sound more like Sanders. Her reason for being president has to do with her ambition to be president. Sanders wants to be president to make the system work for the middle class.

    The people who were disenfranchised in Arizona were most likely Hillary supporters. The GOP have been engaging in voter suppression tactics around the country, not Hillary Clinton or the DNC. Bernie has not won in a closed primary state. Hillary does better with registered Democrats, while Bernie does better with independents. The GOP who control Arizona’s election process flipped registered Democrats to independents. That hurts Hillary. The GOP were the ones who disenfranchised Latino voters by reducing their polling places and forcing them to stand in line for hours. Hillary does better with the Latino voters. The exit polls showed that once again. The media calling it early for Hillary would have only effected Latinos waiting in line. Not to mention 29% of ballots cast were done so with early voting. 59% of early voters were older women. The Arizona primary played to Hillary’s strengths, older women, Latinos and registered Democrats make up her base. She had nearly a 30 point lead going into the election. She won it by 18 points. In all likelihood the GOP’s voter suppression tactics took votes away from Hillary rather than Bernie. Bill Clinton being an ass is not a reason to vote against Hillary Clinton either.

    • Sherrie Moore

      Not really. From the USUNCUT article …. “”At roughly 8:30 PM local time, a little over an hour after polls
      closed, with less than one percent of precincts reporting, the
      Associated Press declared Hillary Clinton the winner of the Arizona
      primary …. A premature declaration of victory for one candidate may
      discourage thousands of people still waiting in line from voting.” If the fix was in for anyone, it was Hillary.

      • DonnaKuykendallStebbins

        86% of qualified registered voters had already mailed in their ballots and they had been counted. THAT’s how they knew who won the election. There was no way for Bernie to catch up with the 14% that remained. The “fix” is that Hillary won fair and square, and by a LOT. Try researching how elections work for each state. That way you won’t appear to be so clueless. USUNCUT should do the same.

      • Arlene Zayne-Hopkins

            Maybe it’s not legal in your state. But, I did misspeak…USUNCUT is the rag of the falling-off-the-LeftCliff version of the tea party. I was misinformed. And remember, progressive is not a descriptor that you own.

    I’m sorry but Bernie is wrong, when he was hosting millionaire parties toasting with the champagne drinkers and raising money it wasn’t a problem, his couple of million in the bank is a hell of a lot more than what we working people have, how many millions of dollars does he have for his campaign that is not just from private citizens, or the private jet he is riding around in, when the numbers aren’t going his way everything is rigged. While he was in the senate/congress and many committees he sat on for 25+ years where was all this fighting for the middle class, he is a sitting senator that could have pushed legislation or like many do attach it to a bill, sweep your own backyard first Bernie before the billionaire talk, I see you dropped the millionaire and its all about the billionaires, you wouldn’t want to include yourself in there sir, because you are a millionaire.

Never mentioning to people who were likely to young to remember how hard it was to even get the ACA as it is. Demonizes HRC who has been a champion for Universal Healthcare for years. He says he is not supported by Super Pacs but he has let them throw rallies and other events for him. He also doesnt denounce the Republican Super Pacs that help him. It is like they dont exist! He talks about regulating Wall Street, but voted to deregulate in 2000. He said he could not run as a democrat in 2004, but now he is. He says he is pro gun control, but was first elected on a pro NRA platform and with NRA money. He walks out on interviews, with reporters. Total narcissist! I could go on and on.

    the koch bros have 900 million to spend in the general, and that amount of money would turn bernie into mcgovern and hand the republicans all three branches of government. no thanks!

  • Arlene Zayne-Hopkins

    Yeah right, Hillary Clinton disenfranchised millions of voters in AZ, by single-handedly staging a coup on the GOP run BOE and closed down all those “extra” polling places. REALLY? First there was Gen X, then Gen Y, then Gen Z…and now we have Gen INFW! = “It’s NOT FAIR! Waaahhhh!”

    Sanders is so damn negative. I like how Hillary talks policy and doesn’t spend her time knocking the president or Sanders

  • Constanza Oller de Moore

    killaris trolls are all over the internet attacking and insulting just because their candidate is a sell out, with no moral compass, integrity or ethics. Go ahead and insult, lie and spew your half-truths just like your candidate.I’m so hoping Bernie wins and happy he might not support clinton. I wouldn’t vote for that clinton excuse of human being even if my life depends on it.

    I am predicting a floor fight at the convention.

    Bernie will come into the convention tied, or nearly tied, with Hillary in pledged delegates. That will allow Bernie to make the following pitches to the Super Delegates: 1) the SD’S in states that Bernie carried – including Colorado – should honor the will of their State’s voters and support Bernie (at the very least giving him his proportionate share of the SD’s); and, 2) all other SD’s should support him, as well, because he is the stronger candidate against Trump in the “head to head” polling; he is the only candidate in the race with “net favorability;” and he is the candidate who can bring in the youth vote, and the independent vote. Democrats NEED those demographic groups to win the General Election, and Hillary is not going to get them. All of that makes Bernie the most “electable” candidate.

    The question will be whether the Democratic Party would rather have a chance of winning with a true Progressive, or, risk losing with a “status quo” Establishment candidate? In today’s anti-establishment political environment, the wise choice seems obvious to me.

    • Annette

      No, we just believe if you play by and accept the rules of the party, and lose, YOU ARE THE LOSER. Even Hillary wasn’t such an ASS. I rather lose than be blackmailed. Many real DEMS feel the same. So, sorry blackmail will not work. Hell, every site I go to with Bernie supporters they threaten us with the same thing. Hell, I rather have Donald than be blackmailed. You knoiw, he really is a progressive too. (LOL)

  • Robert Maury Hundley

    PC, It is good to be enthusiastic about our visions for the future. Fantasies, maybe less so. You assert that Hillary has stolen the 2.6 million more votes she got than B the Burnster, as Levi calls him. BURN’s insufferable ego has not helped him. Then you throw in Tom Donahue, President of the Chamber of Commerce, whose Political Dir. is Scott Reed, former head of the Republican Party, to smear HILLARY w/ an alleged embrace of TPP. 1. She has rejected the treaty; 2. The Chamber embrace is right out of Scott Reed’s Mentor’s Play Book, Roger Stone (who is TRUMP’s vile brain), of dirty tricks. Can you see how it works? Take the Hell’s Angels Ugleist Dude, the Chamber, & grab HILLARY to forceably embrace her in public while winking to say “We are so going stady” the the press, in order to have the ladies of both sexes gossip “Did you see, they are together,” & try & damage HILLARY – And the key question you must always ask: WHO BENEFITS FROM SUCH AN EMBRACE. You have it figured out yet? Yes. DONALD DUCK THE NAZI TRUMP, for the Chamber is hot to be in that bed.

  • Rob Otteson

    I saw this interview and Bernie’s absolutely right not to ‘offer his support’ to any candidate who doesn’t support his (our) agenda. Why would he (we) do that? Just so the next wave of right wing revanchism can take place under cover of a “Democrat”?

  • Elizabeth R. Lewis

    Bernie is just as dangerous than Drumpf if not more so. He is deliberately destroying the Democratic Party (which was his plan all along). He is deliberately inciting his base to turn on the government and the Democratic Party and his followers don’t even get it. They have so sucked down the Jim Jones Kool-Aid that they have become deaf, dumb and blind. They follow Bernie and listen to him like Stepford Wives, believing whatever he says without any independent thought or critique. It wouldn’t surprise me that he wouldn’t support Hillary or that he run as a third party candidate because HE IS a third party candidate. He is an Independent and He is a Socialist. He is NOT a Democratic and he is using the Democratic Party to tear it and the government apart. He might as well be a Tea Party candidate, trying to destroy the government from within. This man is dangerous and people won’t wake up until it’s too late. He’s dangerous because he is incompetent. He has no idea how to run a Country. He knows nothing about foreign policy. His version of foreign policy is to remain ignorant and build coalitions so everyone else can do everything because he doesn’t know what the hell to do. He’s got millennials brain washed into thinking he’s going to create Shangri-La without telling them that’s it’s impossible, that it’s a pipedream. Shangri-La is a movie, not reality. It’s an isolated place that you can’t leave because it’s not real. It’s Bernie’s delusion and he’s selling as part of his self-aggrandizement. What arrogance. He is so similar to Drumpf that it’s frightening and so are his “believers.” That makes Bernie very dangerous. Beware of what he can do to our country and, especially our party. For absolutely no reason, he just sued the DNC over what happened months and months ago. Bernie broke the rules…he stole Hillary’s voter data, then denied it until he got caught. The DNC reacted and Bernie got pissed. So, in typical Bernie fashion, rather than take it like a president, he’s suing like the GOP immature, lashing-out babies. He isn’t worthy of being our president and he certainly isn’t presidential.

  • Boaty McBoatface

    That’s not what he said.

  • Doreen Ellen Bell-Dotan

    Bernie mentions the overthrow of Mohammad Mosaddegh in this interview.
    Most Americans have never heard of him. He was the democratically-elected PM of Iran. His overthrow in 1953 by the CIA and British Intelligence and the backing of the Shah of Iran in his stead was the first horrific error that led to the destabilization of the ME that we see today.

  • Odette Roulette

    He’s pretty damned dishonest himself for saying initially he wouldn’t do this, knowing it could materially hurt people in the country. I guess his ego just got too big. I no longer respect him, if this is his view.

  • Democratic_Thinker

    There is NO way that a mainstream R or any R will run as an independent against Trump.That is fantasy on Curl’s part. A four person general election with Bernie , Clinton, Trump and another Republican?NOT gonna happen and if it did, Bernie would not win it. Nor would a third party candidate win in a general election or by write in. Nader did not, just helped deliver the election to the Republican nominee…and then, totally discredited, an anathema to most Ds, was sidelined. Bernie does not need to become a pariah, blamed for electing Trump, a sorelose from a primary where, it will be said, he temporarily posed as a Democrat, only to knife the Democratic party after losing by running in the general against the primary winner… No, he has more character than that , I would hope and would not want his reputation damaged by coming in a poor third in such a contest, with less support than in the primary.

  • printsalesman

    No surprise at all. He’s not a Democrat, never has been. More of an interloper and needed a ticket to run on. No hope as an independent so the Dems. took him in. If he doesn’t win? He was never going to win because educated people know that he will never ever be able to do what he promises without changing the house and senate dramatically.

  • Eisenhower_Dwight_D_USA

    Lockheed Martin in Vermont: Senator Bernie Sanders’ Stealth Corporate Backers. Despite demanding in public that the Military Industrial budget be cut by 50%, twentysix years ago, Sanders personally cut a deal in smoke filled rooms that brought Lockheed’s F-35 Raptor factory to his home town in Vermont at a cost of 1.5 TRILLION dollars to the US Taxpayer. HYPOCRITE. Remember, this is a plane that even the Pentagon does not want. It is a hellacious boondoggle, pork project that is grounded 75% of the time for repairs due to faulty design. And guess what… BS is its staunchest defender. I wonder why?

  • Mehryar KeShavarz

    You don’t support Bernie Sanders because: 1.You haven’t asked yourself the question of why educated people overwhelmingly support him and don’t understand his position on the issues, which is for the basic rights of citizens in a developed country. 2. You miraculously think that america is in the top 10 list of the best countries to live in, in the world. 3.You know all of that but your brain’s limbic system doesn’t work properly and you don’t give a single shit about other people (inside and outside of US) or your own children’s future.

  • John Cross

    I am not going to waste a minute of my time watching TYT. Even when I agree with them I cannot stand their biased “snotty nose in the air” elitist pseudo-liberal superior attitude. And most of the time they are just as bad as Fox News at twisting things out of context. This is a case in point. Sanders does not say in any way shape or form that he would not support Clinton or that he would ever contemplate a third-party run. He simply says that he would expect to get something in return. Of course, Clinton never said or implied anything like that when she and her husband supported Obama wholeheartedly and 110% in 2008 after she lost by 10 (TEN) pledged delegates. And yet Sanders, who is going to end up losing by a minimum of 500 pledged delegates,insists that he gets some quid pro quo in exchange for his pathetic support–After the Democrats have supported his ass in backroom deals in Vermont for the last 30+ years despite the fact that he has stabbed us in the back constantly on common sense gun control, on the military-industrial complex., on the nuclear industry. Again and again Sanders aligns himself with the rich, powerful and corrupt vested interests in America while hiding his wfe’s financial shenanigans, but idiotic berniebots continue to believe the Bullshit pumped out by TYT and sites like this.

  • sandralynnsparks

    Excuse me, jerks, you lied to people again. Sanders said no such thing. The question wasn’t even asked. This is why I stopped coming to you guys for liberal news. You’re not liberals, you’re propaganda spouting opportunists. And Sanders has now completely lost me by thinking he should be the one to decide for President Obama who should be the new justice at this point. That is President Obama’s privilege, not yours. How patronizing can get and keep me? Not this far, Bernie. Welcome to jerkdom. You are what makes me angry now.

  • Vanesa Perovic

    Hillary is the same as Trump. They are friends. And she even refuse to call him a racist because she is like him but she know how to cover what she really is. Hillary like to vote for wars and she plans more. Unfortunately the vote for her is almost the same as vote for Trump. The wise thing that Bernie Sanders can do, is to turn his back to Hillary.

  • Jamonte R Cannon

    Honestly, what HE does isn’t the point, since he can’t make every Sanders supporter vote the same way (some will go Trump, some will pick Hillary, others third party). If Clinton wins, he’s saying to let the voters make the decision, asking what the party will give them in return for her win.

    A reasoned assessment, in my opinion. Once again, he doesn’t aggrandize himself, but considers others.

    “If Trump wins the nomination, it’s likely that Republicans might throw in a third party candidate…”

    Anything could happen, but I don’t know if I’d call that likely. I think we’re forgetting just how much the GOP hates and fears Hillary. They’ve hated her for decades. If keeping her out of office means throwing their full weight behind Donald Trump, they’ll do it. I think the GOP power players will make their peace with Trump soon enough. They’ll go from opposing him to trying to bring him to heel. It might not be that hard to do, as most of his stated positions are in line with theirs. My fear of a Trump presidency isn’t that he’s a madman who’ll bring about a fascist regime, but that he’ll be a business-as-usual Republican president, doing all he can to cut taxes for the wealthy and destroy regulations on business, overturn environmental protections, etc.

    None of that keeps independents out of the race, of course. There are figures in the GOP who could go independent and jump into the general. Never say never, especially with the sheer insanity that has been the 2016 election so far.

  • Sherri

    If he really does that and it indeed happens he is nothing but a sore loser-and is not a decent Democrat in my view. Not worth anything and sorry I donated 10.00 to his campaign.

  • disqus_1yw6yx74o6

    I’m going to say it although I don’t fully believe it. Every time I would get a message from Bernie I would respond, Yes I agree, that’s why I am supporting Trump. I don’t think Trump and Sanders are as polar opposites are people say. The globalists and those OWNED by SPECIAL INTERESTS are the problem and we need Trump to win the election to be the chainsaw we need in Washington. So I’ll say it. Trump/Sanders. Sanders gets his influence and helps Trump help the middle class and the down trodden. Trump being the top dog businessman we NEED revolutionizes American. Their combined efforts will save this country. Do I believe it? Not sure, but if Sanders is a real American he will sit down with Donald and negotiate. Sanders should be mature enough to see the logic in this as should Donald.

    Been reading the back and forth between Anne and Nate, I will state one thing. The list of banks that paid for speeches the year prior to her running….that’s enough for me. I didn’t care for Hillary before, thought Bernie was closer to my ideals before…but that cemented it for me. People can go as far back as 1970 if they want, knock yourselves out. Do hours of interent search. I don’t need to. Our police officers are taught not to take free doughs and coffee from the establishments they frequent, it’s an unhealthy conflict of interests. That’s enough for me. That and thinking there “might” be circumstances to allow fracking. Sorry dear, there is not ONE.

    An example of why Sanders isn’t winning and why he will only have a limited future. He doesn’t know how to collaborate with others. His rigidity based on a self image of higher moral ground than anyone else, keeps him from actually making the political system work. The Tea Party used that outlook to drive the Republican’s into a deadlock that can’t get anything done that isn’t ideological pure passed, and now Bernie wants to do that to the Democrats. We have seen all or nothing get’s you nothing.

  • Terri

  • The Swan

    Dear Bernie Sanders, TYT, and Readers,
    As a long standing Democrat in The Oldest Capital of our Country, Santa Fe New Mexico and having many Families Serve as Politicians, Law Enforcement’s, All Government Entities, Etc. gave me the knowledge and the difference to know right from wrong in Public Service. Watching and hearing Bernie Sanders say truths to our ears has made me realize that Bernie Sanders has done much right on his campaign along with the many concerns that is desperately needed and as well as needing to address our broken system from those who failed us in this Country. But, leaving a gateway to a Presidential Candidacy to the hands of those who are corrupt and deceitful, and where there is NO Principalities, Ethics, Morals, Value In Our Work, and where Integrity matters when we Elect them in office, and to the many millions of people who are very much depending on Bernie Sanders to address the real issues “which he has” and why it matters to be where he stands is because it’s with passion for Human Kindness from those who have taken it. If Bernie Sanders stands for Civil Rights for every single human being that we all deserves a chance at Choice, and Free Will, than use the one thing that every single person is waiting for you to do Mr. Sanders, “State The Facts” that Hillary has deceived the American People of this Country..in many ways and that is most definite that Mr. Sanders would know since his time in office. It is not being mean, or unfair, it would be unfair to the people to withhold back of what we all deserve to know of this investigation with certainty and not a probability of Hillary’s outcome, It’s a fact of what she has done has been an Illegal and Deceitful move to hide what is most important to us all “INFORMATION”, and an Injustice to every family in this Country as she continues to lie to The American People of NO such investigation is an admittance from her words that she will never be truthful with the American People. As a person as myself who knows very well that any documentation within government is essentially crucial on privacy and secrecy when working in Public Service. Hillary knew that it would be unacceptable if she asked the State Department to set up The Server, it would have be denied. There are those in office in Washington who wish to have the same stay the same, not wanting anyone to rock the boat and that is exactly what Bernie Sanders has done and still doing, if I had broken Policy Would I still be there?, lol You have one person doing it then it starts with two or four than you have a whole Departments lying…than what?, When it’s to late to control the madness of “Broken Policies”, and than every one turning on each other out of Hunger for Spite or Revenge?, than what do you have left at the end in Government when we use and depend on Public Service in our daily lives. You can not deny that if Hillary held the highest office there would be No Accountability of Wrong Doing and would be much harder for anyone to know what is happening office “She would shred everything” “INFORMATION”. For the rest of you who are still in denial or not yet aware or can not decide who is best fit for the Presidency?, lol look at her record, her choice of words, it’s not the Name that matters, It’s the loyalty you show for the people because it makes you humble and care for all humanity and not just the few.
