Bernie Sanders threatened with loss of Senate committee position if he didn’t endorse Hillary

Watching Sen. Bernie Sanders hoarsely shouting his praises of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention — and knowing that the hacked emails of the corrupt Democratic National Committee (DNC) reveal its machinations to undermine Bernie’s campaign — did you wonder as I did why Bernie would be so servile? The Yiddish words schmuck and schlemiel come to mind.

I thought that Hillary probably bought Bernie off with promises of some plum assignment in her administration. But I should know better because the Clintons are nasty pieces of work who wouldn’t use the carrot when the stick is so much cheaper and more effective.

Reporting from the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, independent investigative journalist Wayne Madsen says Bernie Sanders was threatened with the loss of his ranking position on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee if he did not endorse Hillary with enthusiasm.

Chucky Schumer

Hillary’s hatchet-man cum errand-boy to deliver the threat was Senator Charles “Chucky” Schumer (D-NY), uncle of the insufferable “comedienne” Amy Schumer. As the incoming Senate Minority Leader, Chucky Schumer will determine committee chairs and assignments if the Demonrats win back control of the Senate in the November election.

Hey, Bernie supporters! How do you like them rotten apples?

Are you still gonna BOHICA, just like your man, Bernie?

5 reasons why Democrat docu-maker Michael Moore thinks Trump will win

While the Left’s willing accomplices in the media pour on their sickening adulation of Hillary in their selective reporting of the Democratic National Convention, one Democrat is actually speaking the truth.

In a very long, tediously verbose email to his followers whom he addresses as “friends,” which you can read for yourself here, Hollyweirdo film maker Michael Moore mournfully predicts that Donald Trump will defeat Hillary Clinton this November.

By the way, did Moore take in even one Muslim refugee?

By the way, did Moore take in even one Muslim refugee?

Moore writes:

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

Notwithstanding his forlorn wish that he could “be proven wrong,” and despite his belief that “the American people clearly want” the Obama legacy to be continued, which the “whip-smart” Hillary Clinton who “cares about kids” will, Moore tells his followers that they must “stop living in denial and face the truth which you know deep down is very, very real.”

According to Michael Moore, these are the 5 reasons Trump is going to win:

1. Trump will win the rustbelt states of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin

These are four traditionally “blue” states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes which can no longer be relied on to vote Democrat because “the Clintons’ support of NAFTA helped to destroy the industrial states of the Upper Midwest, and Trump will “hammer” Hillary on this “and her support of TPP and other trade policies that have royally screwed the people of these four states.” Moore predicts that “What happened in the UK with Brexit is going to happen here” because of the plight and anger of the former industrial workers of America’s rustbelt:

“From Green Bay to Pittsburgh, this, my friends, is the middle of England – broken, depressed, struggling, the smokestacks strewn across the countryside with the carcass of what we use to call the Middle Class. Angry, embittered working (and nonworking) people who were lied to by the trickle-down of Reagan and abandoned by Democrats who still try to talk a good line but are really just looking forward to rub one out with a lobbyist from Goldman Sachs who’ll write them nice big check before leaving the room.”

Trump understands and speaks to their anger. Moore writes:

“When Trump stood in the shadow of a Ford Motor factory during the Michigan primary, he threatened the corporation that if they did indeed go ahead with their planned closure of that factory and move it to Mexico, he would slap a 35% tariff on any Mexican-built cars shipped back to the United States. It was sweet, sweet music to the ears of the working class of Michigan, and when he tossed in his threat to Apple that he would force them to stop making their iPhones in China and build them here in America, well, hearts swooned and Trump walked away with a big victory that should have gone to the governor next-door, John Kasich.”

Some signs that Trump will win those 4 rustbelt states are:

  • All four states have elected Republican governors since 2010 (only Pennsylvania recently elected a Democrat).
  • In the Michigan primary in March, more Michiganders came out to vote for the Republicans (1.32 million) that the Democrats (1.19 million).
  • Trump is ahead of Hillary in the latest polls in Pennsylvania and tied with her in Ohio.
  • In 2012, Mitt Romney lost by 64 electoral votes. The electoral votes cast by Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are precisely 64, which means “All Trump needs to do to win is to carry, as he’s expected to do, the swath of traditional red states from Idaho to Georgia (states that’ll never vote for Hillary Clinton), and then he just needs these four rust belt states. He doesn’t need Florida. He doesn’t need Colorado or Virginia. Just Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. And that will put him over the top. This is how it will happen in November.”

2. The Angry White Man

While he has only contempt for America’s angry white men who he says are furious that the “male-dominated, 240-year run of the USA is coming to an end” and “a woman is about to take over,” Moore nevertheless sees the 2016 presidential election as the “last stand” of the “Endangered White Male” who will turn out in droves to vote for Trump.

3. Hillary Clinton

Asking his followers, “Can we speak honestly, just among ourselves?,” Moore says outright that “Our biggest problem here isn’t Trump – it’s Hillary.” Here are the dimensions of what Moore calls “The Hillary Problem”:

  • Hillary Clinton is a hawk, who “will find a way to get us in some kind of military action.”
  • Hillary Clinton is hugely unpopular — nearly 70% of all voters think she is untrustworthy and dishonest.
  • Hillary Clinton is an opportunist — she doesn’t really believe “in anything other than what can get you elected. That’s why she fights against gays getting married one moment, and the next she’s officiating a gay marriage.”
  • Young women, in particular, don’t like Hillary and “are among her biggest detractors…. [N]ot a day goes by that a millennial doesn’t tell me they aren’t voting for her.
  • No enthusiasm of Hillary means low voter turnout: “No Democrat, and certainly no independent, is waking up on November 8th excited to run out and vote for Hillary the way they did the day Obama became president or when Bernie was on the primary ballot. The enthusiasm just isn’t there. And because this election is going to come down to just one thing — who drags the most people out of the house and gets them to the polls — Trump right now is in the catbird seat.”

4. The Depressed Sanders Vote

While Moore maintains that Bernie Sanders’ supporters will vote for Hillary, he warns that “The fire alarm that should be going off is that while the average Bernie backer will drag him/herself to the polls that day to somewhat reluctantly vote for Hillary, it will be what’s called a ‘depressed vote’ – meaning the voter doesn’t bring five people to vote with her. He doesn’t volunteer 10 hours in the month leading up to the election.” That’s because Bernie supporters, being young, “have zero tolerance for phonies and BS.” And although “They’re not going to vote for Trump; some will vote third party, but many will just stay home.” And Hillary picking Tim Kaine — “a moderate, bland-o, middle of the road old white guy” — as her running mate sent precisely the wrong message to the Bernie millennials.

5. the angry, DEFIANT american

Moore calls his 5th reason why Trump will win “the Jesse Ventura Effect”. By that he means what happened “back in the ‘90s when the people of Minnesota elected a professional wrestler as their governor” simply because they could — a gesture of defiance against the establishment, “Minnesotans’ version of a good practical joke on a sick political system.”

Moore predicts “This is going to happen again with Trump” when the voter draws “the curtain and are all alone in the voting booth” — “one of the few places left in society where there are no security cameras, no listening devices, no spouses, no kids, no boss, no cops … and no one can make you do anything.” And because of “the anger that so many have toward a broken political system, millions are going to vote for Trump not because they agree with him, not because they like his bigotry or ego, but just because they can. Just because it will upset the apple cart and make mommy and daddy mad.”

In other words, like so many other political analysts, Moore correctly sees the American people as sick of the prevailing system, and they want to “shake things up,” which “President Trump would indeed do just that, and a good chunk of the electorate would like to sit in the bleachers and watch that reality show.”

Hey, Bernie supporters! This is what new DNC chair Donna Brazile thinks of your man

After WikiLeaks released some 2,000 hacked emails of Democratic National Committee (DNC) officials which show the DNC to be a corrupt arm of Hillary Clinton, including an email proposing to undermine Bernie Sanders by publicizing his Jewishness, Hillary promptly threw under the bus DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and replaced W-S with longtime Democrat apparachik Donna Brazile.

Donna Brazile

Alas, those same hacked DNC emails show that Brazile is no better because she also holds Bernie in contempt, which shouldn’t come as a surprise because back when she was the campaign manager for Al Gore’s presidential campaign, she told The Washington Post that she was determined not to let “white boys” win.

Bernie Sanders 2016 logoFoxNews, reports, July 25, 2016, that the Democrat Party “is in turmoil at the start of their national convention after leaked emails indicating an anti-Bernie Sanders bias inside the operation inflamed the left. But it turns out the leaked emails also show Brazile mocking Sanders.”

Two months ago, on May 22, after Sanders endorsed Wasserman-Schultz’s primary opponent, Donna Brazile wrote in an email to DNC communications director Luis Miranda:

“I saw it this am. How stupid. Don’t know how to respond to Bernie anymore.”

In another email on May 13, 2016, to several DNC operatives about her declining a Washington Post interview request because she was worried what she might say about Sanders’ campaign, Brazile said:

“I have no intentions of touching this. Why? Because I will cuss out the Sanders camp!”

Trying to spin allegations that the primary process had been rigged to favor Hillary, Brazile said “The Democratic Party, we have a very open process!” and that the DNC emails had been “selectively hacked,” whatever that means.

Despite Bernie supporters chanting “Lock her up!” and even booing the servile Sanders when he told the Democratic National Convention delegates yesterday that “we have to elect Hillary Clinton,” Hillary’s campaign manager Robby Mook insists that “Our party is coming together”.

Oops! Michelle Obama endorsed the right to bear arms at 2016 DNC!

Mooch didn’t mean to, but that’s what he did.

At the 2016 Democratic National Convention last night, sporting yet another new wig, he endorsed Americans’ Second Amendment right to bear arms when he said this in his speech:

“I also told you about our daughters, how they are the heart of our hearts, the center of our world, and during our time in the White House we have had the joy of watching them grow from bubbly little girls into poised young women.

A journey that started soon after we arrived in Washington when they set off for their first day at their new school. I will never forget that winter morning as I watched our girls, just 7 and 10 years old, pile into those black SUVs with all those men with guns.”

Surely, Mooch isn’t such a hypocrite to think that while he, husband Barry, and daughters Malia and Sasha are protected by bullet-proof “black SUVS” and “all those” Secret Service “men with guns,” ordinary Americans who don’t have those privileges should be deprived of guns to protect ourselves? /sarc

The big ‘LIAR’ sign at a Hillary campaign rally

The Hillary goon squad didn’t do their job at a Hillary campaign rally, and allowed this bold sign to be hoisted up right behind the Beast.

Liar sign at a Hillary campaign rally

Young Conservatives vouch for the picture’s authenticity: It’s not a photoshop.

Liar sign at March 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign rally

But if you look at the “sign” closely, you’d see that the letters are actually LLAR, not LIAR.

What happened was that some useful idiots raised the letters HILLARY in support of The Beast, but the photographer took the photo leaving out the letters HI and Y, resulting in what appears to be LIAR.

HA HA HA HA!

It’s cosmic forces conspiring to reveal the truth, which of course is that Hillary Clinton indeed is not just a liar, but a pathological liar — an individual who lies habitually and compulsively.

Being a pathological liar is one of the defining attributes on criminal psychologist Dr. Robert D. Hare‘s psychopathy checklist-revised (PCL-R), a 20-item inventory of personality traits and recorded behaviors of psychopaths.
