‘We Do Not Accept Those Choices!’

What Is Going On? // For Bernie Sanders from Meg is a Weirdo on Vimeo.

The corporate media have made no secret of their plan to declare Hillary Clinton the Democratic nominee on June 7th as soon as the polls close in New Jersey (while Californians are still voting). This is wrong. The nomination remains UNDECIDED until the super-delegates vote on July 25th!

Mark that on your calendar. July 25th. And plan to March for Bernie at Liberty Park on Sunday, July 24th.

    So the media is flat out telling us they plan to lie to us before the CA primaries are done.

    Should we be excited that they are finally telling the truth, or demanding that the FCC do something about this. Oh, that’s right; Mitch McConnell installed three heck of a job brownies in the FCC.

    This is really quite enough.

    Clinton is NOT going to get 614 delegates in New Jersey.

    Ahead of California, Sanders Warns Media Against Preemptive Coronation of Clinton

    Such sloppy and misleading reporting—which has been ongoing, despite criticism, for months and months—gives the impression to uninformed voters that it’s objectively true when outlets declare Clinton needs “about 60 more delegates” to clinch the nomination. The problem? It’s not true. In reality, Clinton needs 614 delegates to get to that magic 2,383 number. And as Sanders campaign has been arguing, she is unlikely to get that even if she wins New Jersey or other stats on Tuesday.

    The Democrat leaders are idiots. They should be clamoring for Sanders to stay active. He is the one getting unheard of new numbers of democrats to register, NOT Hillary! I believe the incumbent Democrats holding office don’t care if Trump wins. They only care about their lives staying comfortable in Washington, and they know a Sanders presidency would require them to work.

    Cenk Uygur Accuses CNN Host Of ‘Journalistic Malpractice’ For Counting Superdelegates

    “CNN and all of the establishment press totally tilted the playing field here from day one by counting those superdelegates,” Uygur told CNN host Brian Stelter. “When in fact you know the superdelegates do switch their votes all the time. They switched them in 2008.”

    “It was, in fact, journalistic malpractice,” he added.

      Cenk is building an empire bigger then he already has in this election. I don’t know why he even bothered to try MSNBC out, but that was before Comcast bought it.

      NPR is flat out saying that Clinton WILL clinch the nomination tomorrow. Man, I hope California does a Utah!

      Open up those golden gates. I’m California Dreamin’, baby!

        AP and NBC declared Hillary the “presumptive nominee” tonight around 6:20 pm. They said it was based on calling up the super-delegates, we just have to trust them!

    Enough politics for this week, I’m going on a river trip. The same stretch of the San Juan we floated seven years ago.

    Down the San Juan (7/2/2009)
    San Juan River Trip (7/9/2009)

    As they say, you can never float the same river twice. This time the flow is predicted to be around 10,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), or ten times the 1,000 cfs we had the last time!

      Enjoy yourself Richard!

      I don’t know why we wasted time on this democratic primary election anyway. Debbie Wasserman was made chair of the DNC on May 4, 2011. That’s when the 2016 nominee was chosen.

      Hillary will deny it.

    • #8 by Richard Warnick on June 15, 2016 - 1:21 pm

      It was “only” running at 8,000 cfs. I have a busted oar if anyone needs proof of the power of fast water.

        Glad you made it! Let’s see some pics!

        As you see, I turned the blog into a bastion of conspiracy theory since you left. :) I’m thrilled that Sanders is still going strong after his talk with Hillary last night.

          San Juan River
          Down the San Juan

          Busted oar
          Oops – busted an oar in the sand waves. Fast water, heavy boat, gotta watch that downstream oar!

            Yikes! No old wooden oar, that!

            Doesn’t look too useful anymore. :)

            It’s aluminum so technically I can say I didn’t “break” the oar, but it’s not supposed to bend that way. I have to replace the shaft, but the blade is still good.

    Well this is interesting! [especially at 6:00 in]:

    Maybe the media and whoever is rigging our elections are going to get a little RICO trouble.

    Nearly Half of Sanders Supporters Say They’ll Refuse to Support Clinton in the General Election

    Despite attempts by establishment Democrats to unify the party ahead of the general election, an astonishing poll out today by Bloomberg Politics shows almost half of Bernie Sanders supporters say they would not support Hillary Clinton in the general election.

    …”There’s zero percent chance that Hillary Clinton could ever get my vote,” Baltimore resident Perry Mitchell told Bloomberg. “She’s a corporate candidate. I don’t vote for corporate candidates. I don’t do the lesser of two evils.”

    No reason to be astonished. A lot of Bernie supporters are independents, not base voters. We support the best candidate, not the party.

    She picked up Dick Armitage though.

    Everything’s good.

    They are still counting votes in the California primary! Also too, the provisional ballots haven’t been counted yet. Why isn’t this on the news?

    It might be because the AP is a corrupt organization whose job is to manufacture the public’s consent to our rulers’ unilateral actions. Or perhaps its because it’s not “news”.

  10. #18 by Larry Bergan on June 23, 2016 - 7:08 pm

    Have to agree with that one, John Talcott, unless you’re being sarcastic. I had the notion you were a Hillary-bot, based on previous conversations.

    Yes, the AP seems to be good at twisting legitimate stories and nothing else.

      It was snark. He ironically paraphrased John Laurits from the link. But Laurits might have a point.

    Let’s hope they get those provisional ballots counted before the certification happens. People paying attention know those were most likely loaded with Sanders voters since the poll workers training videos told workers to give those out, instead of the ballot they were supposed to get. “Democratic crossover” ballots were only given out after demanding one, and I doubt that happened in 5% of those cases.
