Even though the campaigning on both sides will continue – the game is up.
Bernie Sanders has acknowledged that he cannot win, but will continue to try and build up his support as much as possible in order to have leverage to move the Democratic platform to the left, as much as possible, during the democratic convention.
Bernie Sanders released this statement:
I congratulate Secretary Clinton on her victories tonight, and I look forward to issue-oriented campaigns in the 14 contests to come.
I am proud that we were able to win a resounding victory tonight in Rhode Island, the one state with an open primary where independents had a say in the outcome. Democrats should recognize that the ticket with the best chance of winning this November must attract support from independents as well as Democrats. I am proud of my campaign’s record in that regard.
The people in every state in this country should have the right to determine who they want as president and what the agenda of the Democratic Party should be. That’s why we are in this race until the last vote is cast. That is why this campaign is going to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia with as many delegates as possible to fight for a progressive party platform that calls for a $15 an hour minimum wage, an end to our disastrous trade policies, a Medicare-for-all health care system, breaking up Wall Street financial institutions, ending fracking in our country, making public colleges and universities tuition free and passing a carbon tax so we can effectively address the planetary crisis of climate change.
The only way he fails to achieve his objectives now is if his fanatical supporters, or the “Bernie or Bust” crowd were to carry on acting as surrogate Trump supporters. Neither Hillary nor Bernie will be launching any Trump like personal assaults, Cruz like deceptions, Stupidparty like Myths—
No they will both behave like adults.
Bernie fans who continue personal attacks on Hillary will be stabbing Bernie in the back, stabbing progressives in the back and posing a similar existentialist threat towards humanity as represented by those guilty of supporting the stupidparty and those guilty of falling for false equivalence.
Hillary thanks Bernie:
“I applaud Senator Sanders and his millions of supporters for challenging us to get unaccountable money out of our politics and giving greater emphasis to closing the gap of inequality. And I know together, we will get that done. Because whether you support senator Sanders or you support me, there’s much more that unite us than divides us.”
Hillary is not a great candidate -in that she is not a natural on the stump. Life has made her to be somewhat distrustful, lacking in transparency and overly cautious. But by all all accounts her perceived stiffness, lack of candor or spontaneity is not really who she is. Her political life has been much more complex than Bernie’s. But she is tough, extremely knowledgeable and resilient. Her grasp of policy (whether you agree with such policies or not, is second to none.) Bernie has already made Hillary a better candidate and he can continue to encourage her to tap into all the energy that he has created. She will need our help and we have to have her back. Bernie will have her back -because he is a good guy.
So now we have it – we must identity and confront our enemies. Yes we can give non Bernie or Bust Sanders fans plenty of latitude, yes of course you can keep voting for Bernie, promoting his platform. It is hard to argue against his core contentions. But all personal attacks on Hillary must stop. If Hillary did anything wrong regarding emails, which I highly doubt, then the justice system will work its course. But no one should be interested in an idiot with an opinion. The same goes for her speech fees (this was always a moronic attack) and no, Hillary is not like a typical political liar –research shows that Stupidparty lies are 1,000% more “voluminous” the either Bernie or Hillary. So get with the program. Meanwhile Trump is the perfect Klandidate
Our targets are:
- Stupidparty Voters
- People who fall for false Equivalence
- Stubborn Bernie or Bust Crowd.
- Younger and poorer voters who are lousy voters.
Trump will be the Stupidparty nominee – right now I am now going to explain why – but we knew this outcome last August. I have been sitting on an analysis written several months ago that also explained what would happen in the Democratic primary -I might publish this later this week, (because it should no longer cause unnecessary division) -so that such it can be seen how prescient we strive to be—and most often are.
Clinton V Bernie. There is no middle ground. There can be no compromise. That can be no compromise between Math v Myth, Truth v Lies, Tolerance v Hate.
Our Democracy is under siege, the White City is under siege – surrounded by a bloodthirsty, hateful, fact denying, gun toting, misogynist, warmongering brainless mob -suckered into intellectual and economic slavery by men dripping with gold, unchecked power, asset stripping dreams, and Oligarchical aspirations. It is time for the cavalry congregate, march forward and to charge.
Saddle up, choose your horse, pick your weapons and act like today is your last day.
And I saw, and behold a white horse. And he that sat on him had calculated that he would forever be a ruler and would set forth and conquer Myth with the use of Math.
And there went out another horse, that was red. And power was given to him that sat thereon to take Science to mankind, and that he must prevent raging winds, hell’s furnace, and plagues by allowing research to inoculate against witchcraft.
And I beheld, and lo a black horse. And he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. On one side sat facts and on the other untruths, and never again would the two be held equivalent.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse. And his name that sat on him was Knowledge, and Ignorance followed behind. And as the power of Math, Science, and Facts was given to Knowledge, so he trampled over Ignorance, and deep into the earth this conquered beast did disperse.
Join our four horses of Math, Science, Truth and Knowledge:
