Superdelegate Coup Hoax

The superdelegate coup is a hoax put on by the DNC and the corporate media establishment with the goal of demoralizing the Bernie Sander supporters in an effort to discourage them from getting out the vote during the Democratic State primaries.

In 2008 the DNC and the corporate media establishment did not want Barack Obama to win at this point in the election cycle either and they were playing the same game. Then during the Democratic Convention the superdelegates followed the pledged delegates and got behind the popular selection established by the Democratic State primaries.

The fact remains, however that if the superdelegates where to overturn the popular vote in July during the Democratic convention, the Democratic Party would have a REAL PROBLEM! And the problem would not just affect the presidential race. Democrats at every level would be severely hurt by such a moronic, self destructive move. The Democratic Party would be severely damaged going into the general election and Jill Stein of the Green Party would be the likely beneficiary, getting 3-5% of the vote; probably enough to ensure a Republican win.

Primary Math Sans Superdelegate Coup Hoax

As of Monday, March 7, 2016 the primary math to a Bernie Sanders win is pretty simple. At this time Bernie Sanders has 480 pledged delegates to 675 for Hillary Clinton. That is a difference of 195 pledged delegates. Of the 4051 total available pledge delegates 1155 have been assigned to date so there are 2896 left to pledge in the remaining primaries. 195 is 6.7% of 2896 so if Bernie Sanders wins the remaining states by an average of 6.8% or better he will be the nominee.

If there is a tie the unpledged delegates will clearly go for Hillary Clinton.

Another way to state this is if Bernie Sanders ties Hillary Clinton on average during all the remaining states and wins California by 41 points, Bernie Sanders wins the primary election. The article Bernie’s Narrow Path to Victory: a Statistical Analysis has a more nuanced State by State analysis of a path to a Bernie Sanders Democratic Primary win sans the superdelegate hoax.

Superdelegate Coup Realness

Currently the DNC and the corporate media are using the unpledged delegates to discourage the Bernie Sanders supporters from getting out the vote. It is pretty clear, however that if Bernie Sanders ends up winning the pledge delegate race the unpledged delegates will need to back Bernie Sanders or the Democratic Party will self destruct the 2016 election. Overthrowing the popular primary vote would not only hurt the presidential race, but it would filter down to every Democrat in the running, so the convention floor will not let that happen, just like they didn’t in 2008.

NOTE: Watch the video below…it answers the question “Is Hillary Clinton evil?” in a clear way accentuating the fact that her deception is current and ongoing.

Bill and Hillary Clinton have made a combined $153 MILLION in speakers fees between 2001 and 2013. Then in the runup to Hillary Clinton’s 2015 presidential campaign Hillary Clinton made a whopping $21 MILLION from 92 speeches between April 2013 and March 2015! Will Hillary Clinton be influenced by this money? Will Hillary Clinton do what she is saying during her campaign or will she do what Barack Obama did in 2008 and give more weight to the large corporations who gave her the $21M in personal income in the past 2 years and then later also contributed heavily to her campaign. Is Hillary Clinton Evil? You decide!

ISIS is not our biggest fear; its politicians like the Clinton’s that want to maintain the corporate gravy train, while the horrors of “…racism, poverty, and militarism…” ravish a nation. Lara DeLuz

The question “Is Hillary Clinton Evil?” gets under a Hillary Clinton supporters skin and they try to defend her, so it is not a good opening proposition to a discussion. It is in my opinion, however a very true statement when one considers the consequences as well as the intent of her actions. How many lives have been ruined by the Clintons thirstless greed. How much has the $153 million in speakers fees given to the Clinton’s as a result of favors President Bill Clinton did for big business cost the economy and how many people have lost their homes and their entire livelihood or had their lives destroyed as a result. How many people have needlessly gone to jail. Think about these things and then decide for yourself what your definition of evil is and if you think that Hillary Clinton is truly evil or not.

Maybe you are thinking that Bill Clinton was not as evil as Ronald Reagan or either one of the Bush’s and maybe that is true. But the question is still valid. Is Hillary Clinton evil? Here are a few examples that may help you decide if you consider Hillary Clinton evil or just a normal politician.

Some might argue that it’s unfair to judge Hillary Clinton for the policies her husband championed years ago. But Hillary wasn’t picking out china while she was first lady. She bravely broke the mold and redefined that job in ways no woman ever had before. She not only campaigned for Bill; she also wielded power and significant influence once he was elected, lobbying for legislation and other measures. That record, and her statements from that era, should be scrutinized. In her support for the 1994 crime bill, for example, she used racially coded rhetoric to cast black children as animals. “They are not just gangs of kids anymore,” she said. “They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.” [1] Why Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Deserve the Black Vote via @thenation article

Is Hillary Clinton Evil? There are at least 100 examples of why Hillary Clinton is truly an evil person, but that broad argument is too easily discounted. Here is one clear easy to understand example showing that this is her current direction and not just a thing of the past. This 5 minute video is a must watch:

WHY ARE WE EVEN COMPARING BERNIE SANDERS TO HILLARY CLINTON! Bernie Sanders’s record is impeccable and Hillary Clinton’s record is impeachable. Hillary Clinton is EVIL with scandal after scandal and criminal activity after criminal activity. She has shown a complete lack of morals and displayed poor judgement time and time again. Bernie Sanders has not had a single scandal during his entire career!

Yes, Let’s Talk…Thanks for daring to say it Bernie Sanders!

Imperialism has been a “gift that keeps on giving” that Europe has imposed on the World for centuries and it did not start there, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could move beyond that in the Twenty First Century! One of the BIG and I MEAN HUUUUUGE! differences between the foreign policies of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton is that Hillary Clinton wants to keep the status quo going and Bernie Sanders wants to emphasise dialogue.

I will do a series of articles on this topic including my thoughts on our relationship with Russia several countries in South America, but this article will focus on Iran.

Iran has played a very large role in US politics since 1980. It could be argued that some rather trivial mistakes made by President Jimmy Carter in 1979, mostly as a result of listening to bad advisors…a topic worth another set of articles…, led to the hostage crisis and gave ex-head of the CIA George Bush the opening he needed to orchestrate the October Surprise that ended up being the deciding factor in the 1980 election that brought the Reagan/Bush era into existence. It is hard to overstate what a drastic negative impact that had on the United States and World Politics in General.

This series of videos gives you a good overview of the history behind our current situation with Iran. Kind of a must watch.

Episode 3 is the most telling regarding the current situation. The Bush administration was blocking any semblance of trust and Iran returned the favor by electing a hardline regime so the negotiations simply could not happen. Even when Iran was willing to talk, the Bush administration just put a line in the sand and when the Iranians complied the US moved the line. The film was made in 2009, so it ends with Obama extending a hand to the Iranians so now there is an agreement. But once again, the Republicans are trying to undermine it. If they do it will end in tears for everyone involved. The bottom line is: The Republicans SUCK!
