Bernie Sanders just continues to make friends. Update!

Perhaps his aides neglected to tell Bernie that the Democrats are typically pro-LGBT.

In other news it appears that Sanders is still trying to stack the deck in his favor at the convention.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

Sanders’ campaign requested that Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy and former Rep. Barney Frank (Mass.) be removed from their respective positions on the Platform Committee and the Rules Committee. Both have endorsed Clinton. 

“Both Governor Malloy and Mr. Frank (the “Chairs”) have been harsh, vocal critics of Senator Sanders, and equally active supporters of his challenger, Hillary Clinton,” Brad Deutsch, a Sanders campaign lawyer, wrote to the DNC’s rules and bylaws committee in a letter obtained by Politico. “Governor Malloy and Mr. Frank have both been aggressive attack surrogates for the Clinton campaign. Their criticisms of Senator Sanders have gone beyond dispassionate ideological disagreement and have exposed a deeper professional, political and personal hostility toward the Senator and his Campaign.” 

“The Chairs therefore cannot be relied upon to perform their Convention duties fairly and capably while laboring under such deeply held bias,” the letter says.

Yes let's remove any Democrat who might support the Democratic candidate with the most votes going into the convention, because that might be unfair to the guy losing the nomination.

Of course the point of this is to preemptively cast doubt in the minds of Bernie Bros that the system is rigged so that when Sanders fails to win the nomination they can cry foul and then stream into the streets of Philadelphia angry and pissed off at the "establishment."

What a great idea THAT is.

You know when I first heard Sanders talking about a revolution I simply thought he wanted to alter the political landscape a little, but now it appears that he means a full on, turning over cop cars in the street, storm the Bastille, off with their heads, revolution.

And that is just fucked up.

Update: So now Bernie Sanders is warning Hillary who she can and can't name as her running mate.

Purity tests for Democrats, so now the Sanders' movement evolving into the liberal tea party movement is finally complete.

I guess Sanders did not pay attention to what the Teabaggers did to the Republican party.

    Between Sanders acting like an idiot, Hillary looking more and more like she's going to be indicted and Trump being a goddamn dumpster fire of a human being, I'm pretty confident in saying:

      Here's the exact concluding paragraph from the May 2016 OIG report. There is nothing about Clinton in it, but instead, a recognition that they've had a cyber security problem that well pre-dates Clinton as SoS. New measures were put in place in 2014, after she left.

      "Longstanding, systemic weaknesses related to electronic records and communications have existed within the Office of the Secretary that go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State. OIG recognizes that technology and Department policy have evolved considerably since Secretary Albright’s tenure began in 1997. Nevertheless, the Department generally and the Office of the Secretary in particular have been slow to recognize and to manage effectively the legal requirements and cybersecurity risks associated with electronic data communications, particularly as those risks pertain to its most senior leadership. OIG expects that its recommendations will move the Department steps closer to meaningfully addressing these risks."

      But the IG report said the comparison to Powell — who did not use a private server — only goes so far. It said during Clinton’s tenure, the rules governing personal email and the use of nongovernment systems were “considerably more detailed and more sophisticated,” citing specific memos that warned department employees about the security risks of not using the government system.

      There’s a lot of aspects about Trump that are antithetical to Amish values and Amish beliefs.

      I think he's run his entire campaign for free piggybanking off of the news reporting all of the outrageous things he says. Which I think is why he says them. They report his speeches and his twitters and that is free publicity for him.

      He hasn't really staffed much until lately so he hasn't had that many expenses other than travel and salary. I imagine he even makes a tidy profit from those hats and other stuff he sells.

      If he's bankrupt it isn't from the campaign. It's because he didn't have money to begin with and has inflated his personal worth for decades. (As I'm sure his tax records would show which is why he hasn't released them.)

    Bernie Sanders Warns Hillary Clinton on Running Mate Pick

    Senator Bernie Sanders doubled down on his warning to democratic rival Hillary Clinton that her pick for running mate will be critical to winning over his supporters going into the general election during an interview to air Sunday on "Meet the Press."....

    The Vermont senator was adamant that Clinton pick a hardline progressive for vice president if she successfully secures the Democratic nomination for president. This could help her appeal to the supporters who have flocked to Sanders' campaign during the primary....

If you don't like our rules you should have run as a Republican or a Third Party. Hillary got her picks, Bernie got his. You know what, one of Bernie's picks is Cornell West. Mr. West has spent the last 7 1/2 years saying the nastiest things he can think of about President Obama. Should Hillary be able to have West removed from the committee because he's been a jerk to the President?

    Nope,that's not the way it works. I join others as one who had a great deal of respect for Senator Sanders before this campaign. Not now. He is on his way to being an embarrassing footnote in history. Every time I hear him speak now all I hear is "Get off my lawn!"

      Clinton supporters indeed accused the DNC of a coronation in 2008:

      Just days after Sen. Barack Obama reached out to former President Bill Clinton in the latest post-primary season attempt to unify the Democratic Party, a group of Hillary Clinton supporters ran another ad Monday in an influential Capitol Hill publication that warned against turning the upcoming Democratic convention into what they called a ‘coronation’ of Obama.

      http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/08/11/pro-clinton-group-runs-new-ad-warns-against-obama-coronation/

      Warns the ad, “If Democratic processes and principles are not respected, then the party will have a much bigger problem – a genuine revolt of more than 18 million voters.”

      Clinton can pick anyone she wants for her 6 picks for the Platform Committee. DWS, however, agreed to pick 4 neutral parties and instead picked anti-Sanders Malloy and Frank.

      The Democratic primaries aren't about who the Democratic voters want.

      If that were true, there wouldn't be super-delegates who by design and the number of votes allocated to them are the ultimate deciders of who's the nominee.

      Each state gets to design it's own primary or caucus or both, like Washington where Clinton overwhelmingly won the primary but only Bernie got delegates. I don't see him griping about that and saying the contest was rigged. Yes, the democratic primaries are about who the democratic voters want. The rules were in place, re super delegates before bernie decided to become a democrat last year. He is hurting his adopted party, he has done well, he can't win, he should back off and start aiming at Trump instead of Clinton. If he really is a democrat, that is.

      Of course in WA only one could count and the WA Dem Party picked the caucus. The rules are that superdelegate votes aren't cast until the convention and until then superdelegates are free to endorse or change their endorsement. Sanders isn't trying to change the rules on superdelegates. He's trying to build a case to convince delegates who've endorsed Clinton, but who can't actually vote until the convention, to vote for him. No rule change needed. The guy has the right to dig in and fight until the end. You wouldn't have an argument against it unless you were concerned he might actually pull it off and turn superdelegates to him. If Clintonites weren't worried he might actually pull it off and convince enough superdelegates to change their minds by the time they vote in July, you'd be laughing it off as Crazy Ol' Bernie. The fact that Clintonites continue to try to smear him 20 ways to Sunday even though nothing seems to stick is you're afraid when you look at the poles and look at tens of thousands of people still filling his CA rallies that he might get it done.

Barney Franks has a right to support or not support whomever he wishes. It's not up to Bernie Sanders, Democrat since 2015, to interfere with him. The DNC can have whomever it wishes on its committees.

      Nothing should be up to Bernie Sanders who has been making himself more and more unpalatable to us very patient Democrats by the minute. We started this journey with open minds, thinking that whichever person got the nomination would garner our real support through to the November election because we realize how important this election is. Many of us commented here that we would support whichever candidate won the Democratic nomination, although many of us knew that his "pie in the sky" promises would be torn to shreds by the GOP once it and the media got started. And then Bernie Sanders and his staff and his followers just went off the rails and he's been careening farther and farther from the tracks for months now. He's really in la-la land now. I hope someone he trusts will tell him so. He's annoyed, alienated and angered many good, loyal Democrats. And he needs us much more than we need him, especially since he's running again as an Independent in Vermont.

    Hate to say it and a bunch of you including Gryphen will disagree with me.

    I hope and pray the Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Convention, the Democratic Party and the Democratic voters will not bow down to the demands of a Socialist man who just recently joined the Democratic Party after being a nobody in the Independent Party and other parties for 25 years.

    If the Democratic Party presidential nominee loses to Trump because Socialist Bernie Sanders doesn't get his demands, so be it.

      No he's not. He's relatively poor for senators of such long standing, as is Biden. He's been thinking about the same inequalities for decades, and I agree with him on nearly all the problems. There is no earthly reason for kids to graduate with a so-so undergrad degree and be in debt to 50-100k. Those degrees aren't worth 10% of that, in debt. Undergrad degrees are now roughly equal in learning to a decent high school degree, that's how grade inflation has taken over our nation. But, he goes wrong in saying free undergrad education as he opens himself to criticism, who pays. It should be more along the lines of dividing kids out in HS as to whether or not they want an academic career or an applied science career or a technology career. Then, they won't waste so much time at state U taking electives that are only there to guarantee the salary of some professors trying to ensure the continuation of their department. So he's going about it the wrong way, community colleges should be facilitated, during which kids can choose to become (well paid) plumbers or computer programmers, or get the basics to go on for science or legal degrees. Too many kids go straight to "college" because they have no idea what they want to do, and the HS counseling programs do not seem to be helping kids decide. It's a disgrace to the USA that a young person has to graduate with a loan service larger than the house he should be borrowing money for. And, it takes all that money out of circulation, goes straight to the money lenders and not into the economy, as it would be if these youngsters were actually buying things with their salaries after college. Bernie is not an old fool, he is not in it for the grift (whatever that is), and he should be complimented but he should turn straight to backing the real dem candidate WHO HAS ALREADY WON THE PRIMARY.

    Is XM getting ready to tilt the playing field in U.S. election?

    ...So — if the decision to leave the right-wing political channel on the air in Canada and relegate the lefties to “internet-only” access is not based on Canadian audiences, what is the basis for reducing access to the Progressive channel.

    My guess — given XM’s decision to name the right-wing channel Patriot (as if the lefties aren’t) — is that the changes in Canada are a dry run for a plan to deprive American progressives with an important voice in the home stretch before the American election (while leaving the right-wing voice intact).

    I am speculating — but SiriusXM in Canada has left us no choice other than speculation when they offer no coherent explanation for what appears to be an arbitrary decision to leave the right-wing talkers on-air while pulling off the progressives.

    Hillary claims she has adopted Sanders’ policies and said she’s "proud of the Sanders’ campaign." The Dems are finally getting the fact that MILLIONS of Democratic and independent voters want Sanders’ policies and not those of the establishment status quo Dems (like the Clintons) who bailed out Wall St. and indebted the country to big business and banks since the Carter administration by enacting neoliberal economic policies that have failed worldwide. Of course, when and if Hillary is elected it remains to be seen if she is sincere and really invested in the changes she is now claiming to back or if this is merely a ploy to gain Sanders' voters.


    According to the latest from Dem. headquarters:

    "Hillary Clinton Reaches Out to Sanders Supporters and Expands Criticism of Trump
    Hillary embraces more of Bernie's ideas in California and makes a strong and provocative critique of Trump."

    May 27, 2016
    http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/hillary-clinton-reaches-out-sanders-supporters-and-criticizes-trump


    "Hillary Clinton praised Bernie Sanders’ supporters and previewed aggressive attacks against Donald Trump at a Thursday rally in San Jose, Calif., just hours after the Associated Press announced Trump has the 1,237 delegate votes needed for the GOP nomination.

    'I am proud of the campaigns that Senator Sanders and I have run,' she said, speaking in a large exhibition hall at the Tech Museum of Innovation. 'We have run a campaign on issues about the future. We both want universal healthcare coverage. We both want to make college affordable within the reach of every young person who wants to go to a public college or university. We both want to rein in and prevent what happened in the Great Recession with the misdeeds of Wall Street from ever happening again. We are on the same page'....'"
