The Democratic National Convention might have its own Ted Cruz moment on live television Monday – and it threatens to rip the Democratic Party to pieces right as Hillary Clinton was about to take total control.
Hacked emails have exposed the ugly truth about the party’s primaries, confirming that the system was rigged against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders from Day One.
These messages show how the party establishment betrayed their own voters by trying to deliver Clinton the nomination on a silver platter.
The revelations are so damning that they’re threatening to break the uneasy truce between Sanders and Clinton – and while he so far has indicated he still supports her, it’s clear he’s seething.
Will that lead to a shocking moment when he speaks in Philadelphia tonight? If so, Sanders would divide the 188-year-old party into two bickering camps heading into November.
It’s not a far-fetched possibility. Already, heads are rolling over the leaks, with DNC chair and shameless Clinton cheerleader Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning as longtime Democrats cheer her demise.
“She’s essentially a pariah in every corner of the party,” a veteran Democratic strategist told NBC News. “This has needed to happen for a long time.”
Sanders and his supporters would certainly agree. He’s been calling on her to quit all along because his supporters knew the truth long before the hacked emails were released by WikiLeaks.
“The emails just proved what we believed to begin with,” Sanders supporter Dora Bouboulis, who was marching with thousands of others in protest on Sunday outside the convention hall in Philadelphia, told AFP.
Bouboulis and other Sanders supporters are livid over the emails, which indicates party officials worked relentless behind the scenes to undermine Sanders.
And they seemed to use the ugly politics of division they claim to eschew.
Before the critical primaries in Kentucky and West Virginia, the committee’s CFO, Brad Marshall, sent out a shady directive suggesting that operatives could question Sanders’ faith.
It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.
The party’s CEO, Amy Dacey, wrote back: “AMEN.”
Similarly, after it was revealed that lax security at the DNC allowed a Sanders operative to gain access to Clinton’s voter list, party apparatchik plotted how to manipulate coverage to make Sanders look bad.
“Wondering if there’s a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never had his act together, that his campaign was a mess,” Mark Paustenbach deputy to DNC spokesman Luis Miranda, wrote in an email.
It’s not clear if these strategies were ever followed up on – but the fact that they were even discussed behind the scenes reveals that Sanders was right all along.
The system was rigged from the beginning, and it was rigged against Sanders and his millions of enthusiastic supporters.
“It is an outrage,” Sanders said on CNN on Sunday “It’s sad that you would have people in important positions in the DNC trying to undermine my campaign.”
Outside the convention, thousands of Sanders backers took to the streets to call for Clinton’s ouster, chanting, “Hell, no, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary.”
Online, Sanders supporters are using the phrase “Bernie Must Disavow” to call on their candidate to take back his endorsement – which would make for a dramatic moment when he speaks tonight at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
But even if he doesn’t… even if he continues to endorse the very party that worked relentlessly to undermine him, no one will buy it.
It’ll have all the credibility of a hostage video – and that lack of credibility may undo Clinton’s control of the party.

Main Street says
A once great party that championed the working class. A once great party that up until the 1980’s was criticized for spending too much on defense and having too many right wingers down south. Today it’s the party of the baby momma/daddy on welfare and faux elitists. A party that works hard to ignore it’s former base, working class/middle class Americans.
Not sure any more if the Democrats ever were a “great party.” Looking at its history up to today, it has been the hideout of slavers, anti-sufferage politicos, big-city “bosses,” small-town “king-makers,” labor racketeers . . . . and the list goes on. Then you have the Clinton gang. Hillary stealing the White House china is just symptomatic of those crooks, and is a tale that is largely overlooked as “humorous.” Ugh! I feel like I have to shower any time I have to interact with a Democrat.
Main Street says
@ Jay: It was once a great party. The party of FDR and Truman who got us out of depression and won WWII. Trump’s ideology and acceptance speech would fit into the Democrat ways in the 50’s or 60’s. I’m voting for Trump. However the Bush jokers and people like Paul Ryan, Kasich or Ryan aren’t nothing to boast about.
It started down hill under LBJ and has continued downhill ever since. I got smart in those days and switched parties as I saw what was coming.
Jane Jenkins says
My father was a Democrat until the Lyndon Johnson era. Then he decided that party was not for him. I have never been a Democrat. I think the party has gone to the dogs.
It was pro-slavery, the source of the KKK, it segregated the military when Wilson got in and prolonged the great depression. Sounds like a once great party to me.
Main Street says
@Jim: Yes it was. The Republicans were the party of elitists and the wealthy back then. Many of the folks you talk about switched over to be Republicans after 1968. Trump’s policies to bring back jobs and a strong defense is right out of the FDR, Truman and JFK era playbook. That’s a big reason why the Bush family and folks like Romney don’t like him.
True, but it was another Democrat (Harry S. Truman) who ordered the integration of the military on his watch.
A man who knows his history. I’d vote for you!
Actually WW I I got us out of the depression. FDR’S policies were by and large failures.
Vote Trump / he is our American hero.
Thanks for this post. Could not have said it better!
Jack Kinch says
Truman is a bit questionable. The war in Korea wasn’t voted on by congress. Nothing was settled. Many lives and much wealth was wasted. Maybe if MacAuthur had been in charge there would be one Korea and China would still be our friend.
Terry Humphrey says
MacArthur was in charge and the reason the Chinese intervened.
John Snow says
The last great Democratic president was John F Kennedy. If he was voting in November he’d vote for Trump!
The Kennedys were as corrupt as the Clintons.
nobody in History is as corrupt as the Clinton Bitch ,she has to be Lucifer’s Mother ,no
Human can be as NASTY and CORRUPT and UNTRUSTWORTHY AS SHE IS, she had to climb out of Hell to do all the dirty Deeds she has done and still is doing ,she is not Human and proofs it all the time ,
@ Bob, sounds like you know the Clinton clan and the Kennedy clan both from the inside out, very well .
Ms. Travis Petty says
At least John Kennedy had a set. Did not like the rest on them though.
Christopher S. O'Rourke says
Very Tru, John K. Kennedy would be voting for Donald J. Trump if he were still living. Hitlery Killery ROTTON Ayatollah Khoemeni Clinton losing control of the Demoncratic party that he & her husband Sleazeball, draft dodger former Figurehead Bill Clinton have owned since 1992. Whatever smart reformers the Demoncrats have need to kick the POS white trash Clinton’s out of the Demoncratic party and clean it up. The Clinton’s & Ted Cruz can organize & form the Liars Party., and whore themselves to special interests. The sooner the Demoncrats do that which they won’t at all.
Vance everson says
Christopher O’Rourke- if Bill Clinto is a draft-dodger, what’s your opinion of Dick Cheney, who got four deferments during the vietnam war, stating that he “had better things to do” at the time…?
Trump is the only one we dare count on.!
He loves America and will not let us down.
Bert Fannin says
Sorry, but The Donald can only be trusted to damage the country, and only cares about his brand. Voting for Trump, would be fare more dangerous then voting for Clinton.
Richard Schwartz says
Donald discovered that their are more of us “undereducated” than educated. Democrats used to have this group but got overeducated and lost their way. Now they will get a lesson!!!! Look what the gifted have done to the country. It is nothing to be proud of. Look at the national debt and action not taken to control it.
I was in the business world and when we ran in the red we took corrective action. Things like stop hiring, wage and benefits frozen, postpone purchases for a period of time till the current circumstances improve.
Any control from congress or the president? Why not? If they aren’t that smart why the hell are they there?
Where is everyone? Vacations that have not been earned?
Victoria Barrett says
There is a big difference between education and common sense. I’ll take the guy with the common sense anytime.
Irene Elizabeth Grooms says
I’ll take the common sense any day.
@ Victoria & Irene, I can agree with your post and your comments, I has been proven over and over that a person or persons with just good common sense can go a very long way in life and in business also. Just look what Walt Disney was able to accomplish, just using good old fashion common sense ? Do not get me wrong, book knowledge is fine, but good old common sense can still get you much father in life.
Don Holland says
One can always hope that the end of this horrible party will be coming soon. The democrat party is more corrupt than the MAFIA.
SERGIO A. ORTIZ says
YOU SAID IT RIGHT!
the party OF slavery, the party OF Jim Crow, the party AGAINST Civil Rights laws.
You are talking about the Democrats!!! None of them VOTED YES to let Blacks vote!!! Wake Up America!!! Replublicans gave the vote to Blacks, Women, & every one who wanted to vote. BUT If YOU are Able to VOTE! Show ID or go home! No Chiago dead people voting!
They were never great they are the party of slavery and still are today with all their handouts to keep people down. The Dems were and still are the party of the KKK 97% registered Dems. White liberal Dems own BET television. The party of continuous piles of body bags piled up in their wakes. Must I go on oh yes the party of 3 strikes and your out. Now they are letting the thugs out of prison by the thousands.
Hillary will win in a LANDSLIDE and Trump and the Republican Party will be DEAD and gone forever!!!!
I used to think this way, but due to recent and still unfolding events, I doubt very much Clinton takes it in a landslide. She still might win, but it’s going to be a real brawl to see this through for her. And, by the way, I am absolutely no Clinton supporter.
Personally, I’m hoping that the current idiots in the Democratic party leave for good. I believe both democratic and republican parties are dinosaurs and need to get voted out. I have done some research and personally favor the platform and ideals of the Veterans Party of America. It’s time we stop voting our forefathers party and start thinking for ourselves and find what is right for the United States today.
Hillary would be doing the party a great favor by stepping down and let Bernie take over. The polls indicate that Bernie has a better chance of stopping Trump. Sometimes, I have my doubts that Hillary will beat Trump at this next election.
laercio puggina says
what do you get when you cross a crooked politician with a crooked lawyer CHELSEA.
Richard Moorer says
Once being a democrat voter I saw the light changing when Kerry ran. It is pretty bad when a party is so insecure about a candidate that they have to cheat in the Primaries to see that the candidate is elected. Bernie had it right, Hillary and Debbie cheated. Hillary will make sure Debbie has a job if she is elected. I certainly hope that the democratic party wakes up and sees how weak of a candidate Hillary really is. Of course she denied having anything to do with the emails, of course she didn’t have any connection, BULLSH*T. Lying Hillary is at it again, she will never learn, seems she has an email problem Vote NO for Hillary in November she will get the message
The tItle “Clinton losing control of the Dems”. Is that supposed to be worse then Hillary losing control over Bill? No wonder that he assaults other women. Wait till he gets back in the White House. You better keep your wife on a short leash !
Southern By Choice says
Sanders may be outraged, but like a good little puppy dog, he will get on the stage tonight, voice his “outrage”, then endorse Clinton. A real slap in the face to his supporters, most of whom and what I don’t support, but maybe now they will see what ridiculous people the democrats are. Now Hilliary is complaining that people just hold her to a “double standard”. Whoa – she is now a victim? When it comes to breaking the law, I am sure there are many in prison who would love to be held to her “double standard”. I expected her to start crying at any minute – what better way to get the stupid female vote – and I am a female, however, can think for myself.
Kind of like the Menendez brothers claiming to be orphans after they killed their parents. Makes sense to me that Hillary is now a victim .
don baldwin says
she will cry when the first debate takes place if the women of this country can not see through this pig then there is no hope for them ladies think about of bubbas women and how she treated them taking millions from countries that do not recognize women as citizens she does not care if you have a job, if you and your family is safe and she is not smart enough to hide her emails
Not from the slave states says
What do you support? Being the first to be hired and the last to be fired in the racial caste system of “That South”? Disgusting with poor values is what you really are.
& SCHULTZ is quitting after their Artificial party.
Unfortunately I think this whole farce is rigged, just like the last two elections! I pity this Country when she gets in, we’ll be worse off than we were the last 7 1/2 years. She is nothing but a power hungry, lying, treacherous, socialistic female version of Odumbo and he will influence the hell out of her decisions thru his Muslim appointee,s in our once entire American Government. Anybody who votes for her will suffer the consequences along with the rest of us, so think twice with your brains if you have any, before you darken the circle under her name.
REMEMBER YOUR A, B, C’S IN NOVEMER:
A-NYBODY B-UTT C-LINTON!!
Jean V. says
Very well said!!!
I HATED HILLARY AND SCHUNTZFROM DAY ONE NOW I HOPE THEY GO TO HELL AND BUY.
I suspect that the Clinton campaign will offer Bernie a ‘Choice’ position in the administration IF she were to be elected, just like the loser currentl occupying the ‘Rainbow’ house did for the Butcher of Bengahzi in the Secretary of State position.
For ‘The Bern’, it would HAVE to be a position with ‘Socialist’ responsibility, maybe czar of ‘Free Education’, ‘Free Healthcare’, or some other gradiose socialist program.
And being the socialist that he is, he just might accept. Hard to say. ‘The Bern’ could actually turn out to be a socialist with principles, if there is such a thing.
Not likely Don !!!! He will shut his mouth like a good little puppy dog demoSCUM and say how great and how qualified this 30 year criminal is to run our country — he will leave out “further into the cess-pool of corruption”. Him or his family may have already been made aware of what happens to people who fight the clintons. I watched some clown this morning, until I got sick and wanted to vomit, saying how good the clintons are and she will make such a wonderful president. He is the same clown who advised slick willy while embarrassing our country, a great person to listen to -right —–NOT.
they should not have been there in the first place crooked and liars.
What goes around always comes around. When you tell that first lie you have to keep telling lies to cover that one and then you just snowball with them. The whole dem party has turned into a giant lie machine that has gotten out of control. From the ones in office to the ones running all they know is lie and lie some more. Honesty is a word they long a go threw away. The last lie was everything was fair. Well I guess that just wasn’t true. People have now seen just how crooked they are and doing what needs to be done. Hurt them at the polls with the vote.
Funny how obama never ran into the scrutiny he deserved. He slithered into the Whitehouse unscathed by his past and his intentions.
Glad to see hilliar getting what she deserves, and who knows, obama could be next.
We can only hope! maybe Trump will appoint Trey Gowdy as AG and he can take them ALL down.
@ old 1, like you were saying, “what goes around always comes around ” , so please explain just when are the Clinton clans time coming around ? Like many,many,many others, I believe it is a very,very long time in coming, would you not agree ?
That DemoRat Party is clearly so cor*upt that anyone that support them needs to be committed to a mental institution..!!! But Hitlary for Prison needs to be committed to life in a Cor*ectional Institution (Maxx Prison)..!!! The actions of old Debbie and the DNC fits perfectly with Old Bill Bob and Hitlary…Cor*upt Criminals to the CORE..!!! People supporting the DNC need to get it through their collective heads that the DNC is now the Communist Party (which started with Carter and migrated into the old Billy Bob Prez Administration 1993- to 2000) and are following the Communist Manifesto down to the letter…just look at what BO and his Commie/Muslim/NWO/Connies have been doing over the last 7 1/2 years, complete destruction of the U.S. Constitution and what this Nation was built upon…Faith in Jesus, Moral Right, Small Businesses, and a Honest Days work for and Honest days pay! None of this still exist in 80% of American, but them again all our Jobs have been shipped to Mexico and China (far East nations)..!!! No Work/Jobs for “We the People..!!!” Trump and only Trump! God help us, PLEASE!
john G. says
Bad things couldn’t happen to a more deserving individual – Hillary the “Hun” “Wicked Witch of the East”.
Hillary crying, only for herself. She is a sociopath, they do not care about anyone but themselves. She sees the presidency slipping from her fingers is playing the whoa is me a poor mistreated woman card. However, the dike has a set of nuts the size Texas, how else could she tell all the bald face lies she tells with a straight face even to the families that lost loves ones because of her. She is a godless prostitue with a for sale sign on her forehead. How could anyone vote for her?
ALL TRU. ANYBODY BUT HER TO ELECT.
laercio puggina says
why bill Clinton quit the saxophone? so he could play that HoarMonica, end what is bill Clinton definition of safe sex? when Hillary is out of town.
@ Michael, I would just like to thank you for your post and your comments, that is the best description of Hillary that I have read or seen on any web-site or in any posts so far. So even though I did get a very good laugh and I even thought your comments were very cute, they were very nicely put.
I do not understand why the party still nominated this broad when she has so much stuff, such as Whitewater, Benghazi and just barely escaping an indictment over misuse of government email. All this is going to bite her in the ass, when it comes to TV debates with Trump.
Sy Polsky says
As the Roman Empire collapsed from within, the regime continued to buy off the population with bread and circuses (read: entitlements). History is repeating itself and I fear for the Republic. Trump may not be an angel but is there any doubt that Hillary is a lying, egotistical self-pitying narcissist who will complete Obama’s agenda–the weakening and fall of America. The people to whom she lied repeatedly lack the power to put her behind bars but we do have the power to deny her the White House. When she loses, you can expect her to throw more than a vase at her playboy husband.
john j says
i would not be surprised if Bernie goes along with Hillary and tells everyone how wonderful and great she is. i am sure that Bernie and Hillary have already worked out a back room deal for his well wishes. what would really surprise me is if Bernie tells the truth about Hillary and how he really feels. but as both of them are seasoned pros on the art of lying and scamming the people don’t expect any surprises.

I agree with Main St. It really was once a great party that has turned into a total disgrace. Unbelievable that they are promoting a candidate with issues that would be putting other people doing the same things in jail! I am a woman and believe there are many woman out there who could run that would have high moral standards. Hillary belongs in jail, not the White House. I am voting for Donald Trump. We need someone in there that will focus on paying down outrageous debt this country has and also get people back to work. I’m really tired of all this political correctness and giving everything away to other countries and people here who only want hand outs without working. My husband & I worked for 40 years with money taken out of our checks to pay for all of this and we are sick of this! If she would win, this country will be infix able and turn into another Socialist / Communist country. All because they’re so determined to have the first woman president in office. It amazes me how stupid some people in this country have gotten!

Does anyone REALLY believe it when Hillary Clinton claims she didn’t know anything about the dirty tricks that Debbie Wasserman Schultz did to make Bernie lose the election?
@ Lucille, in answer to your comments ” Does anyone really believe it when Hillary Clinton claims that she did not know anything about the dirty tricks that Debbie Schultz did to make / cause Bernie to lose the election ” ? There must be some citizens / voters out there that believes each and every word that Hillary, Bill and even Chelsea Clinton has to say, other wise how do you or anyone else, explain all of the backers, followers and supporters that Hillary continues to have, even after ALL of the BS, Lies and spin that Bill and Hillary and even Hillary’s campaign members, have been caught in using and she just keep’s adding more and more and more BS and lies each and every day and more and more citizens/ voters just keep drinking more and more of the Clinton Kool-Aid. Think about this, even the Western Media is going more and more out of their way in covering up for Hillary each and every day, that being said, do you happen to agree or disagree ?
laercio puggina says
dear women voters if you will vote for Hillary Clinton end she win , the white house will be full of women like Monica , the horny bill will have a great time, of the us taxpayers money.
We knew from the start the Republicans and religious fanatic Conservatives were out to damage Trumps campaign and they still are. That the Democratic Party was doing the same thing to Sanders campaign had been suspected but was hidden by the mainstream media that are owned by the Leftist and foreigners. For decades those on the right have warned that the RNC and DNC are crooked. Most people think the RNC and the DNC are part of the Government. The political party’s are just Private Corporations with extreme power over what happens in Government. They are the Totalitarian Oligarchy you put into power with your support of their Corporations by giving them your money and voting for whom they want to support with your “donation” funding them. Trump is exposing that corruption as was that Fascist Sanders. Don’t get all huffy about my calling Sanders a Fascist. That is what a “Democratic Socialist” is…just like Chavez, Hitler and Mussolini were Democratic Socialist…Populist Fascist. In contrast. Trump is a Republican Conservative Populist.

I guess NOW Bernie Sanders cares about Killary’s “damn e-mails.”
It’s not just those e-mails; it’s also her speeches in front of her Wall Street enablers, the e-mails that the FBI said were never turned over, the e-mails about Benghazi. The corruption never stops with Killary.
And then she selects as a running mate a Senator and former Governor of a state where the most recent ex-Governor was convicted of accepting gifts from a businessman-supporter. And guess what her running mate did? He accepted gifts from friends while he was in office as Governor! But then Kaine has an excuse; he “disclosed the nature of the gifts” when he received them.
That’s his reason for not being prosecuted? You can’t make this stuff up!

It is nowhere near being the beautiful city on the hill. First be aware of just what discipline is. Understand the need! If you attended grade school during the 1930s and have had opportunity to sit a period of time in elementary today you will come to a great conclusion, Moms & Dads have absolutely no idea for the meaning of discipline which is absolutely needed to win! Only the winners should receive a trophy, anything else, we go down the tubes. So with everyone receiving a throphy and no one absolutely standing for Honesty, we ALL go down the tubes! You can bet your “Bottom Dollar” on it! I have absolutely no doubt that the world will no longer have a “Good Ole USA! Gone to “Pot” , our work ethic, meaning of marriage, being “fair”,acceptance of homosexuality as “normal” furthrtmore as a normal life style, our money system down the “tubes”,there is a need for leader states coming together and establishing a base need for understanding Right & Wrong. Where and Who can establish a base to determine right from wrong and then to live and work according to it? World history, (much of it having been removed from primary-secondary education in The US) should be understood and life progression be generated accordingly. I may some how be able to see the future of the world from another place,—after life! It will be most interesting—I would enjoy being around watching —whatever happen!——
Raymond Dzuris says
I agree with you, today there is absolutely nobody with an idea for the meaning of discipline, which is absolutely needed. I have two young children 7 and 9 both started out in public school with great disciplione and I have watched them change. I have gone to the school and have seen first hand how other children act out, its out of control. If there is no discipline things will begin to get worse.

The Democratic Party of today & prior to 1992 are totally different. I’m voting for Donald Trump, he has woke up the Republican Party, the majority of the people of all backgrounds are sick & tired of the status quo, special interest groups. Donald Trump can’t be bought. The damned POS white trash, bigoted,racist,Athiest,evil,venal,crooked,corrupt Clinton’s stole the Democratic Party in the 1990’s and have Mede it the Demoncratic Party. I’m a Libertarian, and since 1992 I haven’t voted for a Demoncrat for Figurehead & Vice Figurehead of the United States. TRUMP-PENCE ALL THE WAY.
Christopher I’m with you “TRUMP-PENCE ALL THE WAY.” I too a Libertarian
Hmmmmmm, BROKEN Republican Party, BROKEN Democratic Party, can’t HELP but wonder what it is “They” have in store for “us” now. Hang onto your hats friends, it’s gonna be a ROUGH ride I think.
@ mike, I agree with your post and your comments. Oh by the way, can you or anyone else try and answer this question ? In ALL parties (Dem. Rep. and Ind.), just how many of the different candidates, campaign members on all sides and the different politicians involved, that have used or have tried to use ANY TYPE of common sense since the campaigns began last year ? Or will try to use between now and “National Election Day ” ? But at the very same time, any and ALL of them can sure as heck spread the BS, lies, spin and even more propaganda ( especially when it is to their advantage ) and with very, very, very big shovels.
Once you get a Clinton involved with anything it will be corrupted. Look at all the scandals that have happened over the decades which have included the Clinton’s, all they mysterious deaths of individuals who either had evidence which also disappeared, or their testimony was never heard because they were dead. Look at all the women William A. Clinton has made sexual advances on and when rebuffed the victim became a target for Hillary to intimidate, threaten, and act against. Look and the Clinton Foundation and were it got its high dollar donations, mostly nations and individuals who do not support out values here, so why did they donate, to gain access to the presumptive next POTUS? I could go on and on, but why. There will be at least a scandal a week emanating from the Clinton relationship on something they will deny. If only 10% were true they both would be in jail if they were average people but remember, money, power, and position gives certain people immunity from the laws the tell you to follow and if you don’t you end up in jail. Even the Director of the FBI came right out and said anyone else would have been indicted for the violations she committed BUT because she is a POTUS candidate he would not recommend Felony charges although the investigation did find several civil violations of the law she can still be held accountable for. When is American public going to wake up and tell the DOJ that NOBODY is exempt from the laws set down, that tampering with evidence, lying to Congress, hiding information, being evasive and illusive, is not the way to win and keep endearing voters happy, then add on top of that the propensity to continually lie to Congress, the American Public and others and what have you got, a trust worth person? Not hardly. Now the latest Wasserman/Hillary DNC violations of ethics and rules is paramount to stabbing your fellow democrats in the back. How can Sanders or Sanders supporters even pretend to support Hillary after that vicious and deliberate attack? It goes without saying that HRC and WAC need to just disappear forever before they both end up crossing so far over the line that DOJ must indict, convict and sentence them both to prison for a long, long time.
@ Dave, I do agree with your comments, and remember how that old saying goes, ” if you want ANYTHING scr ewed up or corrupted , just let the government get their hands on anything or get involved in it “.. Same holds true where ever the Clintons are involved.
The democrats have been cheaters and liars for years now and as Independents we are really sick and tired of them. So much so that watching a democrat lie on TV just turns my stomach. Have felt the same way about that idiot schultz woman the dnc was forced to dump yesterday, but in true democratic form they reinstated her at the convention. It should be quite a show when she opens and closes each day, unless they ban all Sanders supporters from the floor, which wouldn’t surprise me! We will not be watching their circus show….watched every minute of the Republican convention and we pray Donald Trump is elected. He will put excellent, intelligent and experienced people in his cabinet and he will get the job done as he always has.
Stop Government Corruption says
You took the words right out of my mouth! I can’t even WATCH!
I totally agree. I’m sure Sanders will fulfill his promise to support Killary, unlike Ted Cruz did for the Republican nominee. I will tune into FOX news just to see if riots break out and then tune the rest of the Communist…..errr….DNC out. I can’t stand to listen to any of those fools and most of them should be in jail anyway. Just think, their presidential candidate knowingly transmitted top secret information on an un-secure server with vital national secrets, watched our Ambassador and 3 other brave Americans get killed by Islamic jihadists via unarmed drones, their VP is in cahoots with CAIR and other Islamic organizations and the low-info voters that only listen to the alphabet soup networks and are like Sheeple being led to slaughter and taking the rest of the country with them. God help us.
Bernie Sanders, eligible for retirement should GET EVEN for what the BITCH did to him & his campaign. I hope he puts the screws to the crooked, thieving HIL-LIAR-Y and her gang of DEMO-CRAPS!
I would LOVE to see that happen!!
Stop Government Corruption says
Unlike some, Bernie is more honest and will probably keep his oath of support.
The DNC is a total fraud and they have gotten the pathetic candidate that they so richly deserve! 🙂
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of hypnotized people, and couldn’t come at a more opportune time.
Sanders has already betrayed his supporters. How many times during the debates did he insist that The Liar was totally unqualified for preznit? How many times did he cry “foul” about the primary results? Yet instead of standing his ground and insisting on investigations and re-counts, he folded like a cheap suit and went into the worship of the Beast, telling Americans that not only would he support her campaign, but vote for her, too!
He should never be able to lift his head in public again, especially if – as expected – he’ll roll over like the obedient dog he is and continue to be a gay cheerleader for The Liar “for the sake of party unity.”
What a Judas. What a weasel. What a snake – no, he’s spineless – a jellyfish, that’s it, and not even one with a sting to it!
i hope i stand corrected and that Sanders withdraws his support of The Liar with his speech – but i honestly don’t think he has balls anymore; i think The Liar gelded him, and is “keeping them safe for him” in a box somewhere, just in case he “gets out of line.”
If Sanders just rolls over for The Liar, he should lose his base in Vermont, be replaced by their voters and retire from politics completely. i can’t think of anyone who respects this creep any longer.

Wake up people….take off those Rose Colored Glasses and take a good luck at Hillary and her political team. Lies, lies and more lies and dirty politics.
Jan C says
I love how Obama and Hillary keep saying everything is great. We have no big problems. Anyone out here trying to survive in this mess knows better than that. We are not blind or stupid. (well most of us). If they think there are no problems then I guess they think nothing needs to change. Yikes! Business as usual and all of you that are pleased with the way this country is being run I guess you can vote for Hillary. How sad.
patricia somers says
thank you …..u got rid of crooked Hilary……………….yessssssss
Just goes to show that H. L. Mencken was right about the reasons people have never lost public office.
Sanders is hurt, as he well should be, but he has actually been a Socialist Democrat his entire political career. He will fall in line and like it ( or they will probably find his body somewhere like all of Clinton’s other enemies ) and play along like a good little Socialist / democrat / Communist and try to rally his supporters to vote for Hillary. Some will, but others may disrupt the convention to the point they have to call in the National Guard ( One can only hope!!! ) and stay home on November 8th. Either way, the #WIKIleaks # DNCleaks email controversy couldn’t have come at a better time for the USA.
Alan Humphries says
Some of the leaked emails also show who the true bigots are. The DemonRats are and have always been the racist/bigoted party.
Hillary (rotten) Clinton is a lying no good bitch the same as her husband Blow Job Bill Clinton who used the oval office for his blow jobs with his girlfriend Monica Lewniski. when he was president.
I wish Bernie would blow her out of the water! But then again I don’t think he’d want to end up dead or bought out. I may be mistaken on the buying out part though.
El Tejas says
Most politicians are all about the power political office gives them. The Democrat Party once presented themselves as the party of working people. Even if that were once true, it no longer is. The Democrat’s primary concern now is power and control, Their aim is to subjugate not only the American worker but everyone. They use and manipulate any group that they can to further their goals.
Becki Guillory says
This year is the most critical year Americans are having to go through. Our Countries finances are at an all time high in the gutter DANGER! Some of the worlds leading Financial Adviser have warned us. The Feds can not bailout any bank,Wall Street, which is about to take a 50% dive. Our overseas creditors will not take the dollar. And we owe trillions of dollars to our Allies. That we can thank Obama for. I urge you to take out what you may have and shield any assets while you can. The stock market is about to crash any day now. Worse than 1930. Friday, behind closed doors, Obama signed a bill stripping away our Fourth Amendment. No Judge required, one Fed. Gives another Fed a warrant. They can seize anything in your home. Cash, valuables, computers, iPhones, iPads, all in the name of looking for terrorist, illegals. But we all know they monitor our emails, Facebook, text mes. And phone lines. Obama’s brother is backing Trump. And Hillary hasn’t seen the last of her email debocial. Email were found this weekend proving her canadicy is rigged. Her advisior and the DGC have stepped down.
Chronicles 7:14 ( in translation) And if my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn away from evil ways. I will hear you from Heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their Nation. God Bless America! Trump 2016!
Minerva Moser says
I don’t know why Sanders feels such a strong need to support Clinton; historically he has had no true affiliation with the Democratic Party.
rodney burke says
oh you mean the dems are waking UP! what a novel concept. They can finnaly see she is a communist Alinsky disciple? What next, maybe they will dump? You suppose it might be the speakers? ha, ha! or her VP? Slight possibility of hope for the Dems, but very limited since killary is so corrupt. I hope she loses complete control and it is public for all to see!
Well well lets say that Hell-lary never had control of anything one example was her husband who cheated her like there was no tomorrow and she accepted it . Ill bet you that her husband slept with monica on her bed and the only thing she did was had the maid change the sheets the next day. If she didn’t have control of one person how can she have control of thousands even million. He might be still cheating on her and she accepts it
Justin W says
Debbie Schultz may resign but it is likely that she will still be controlling things in the shadows. The fact is she and Hillary Clinton have likely assembled an entire organization with values similar to theirs. While Clinton and Schultz may be catching the blame there are a lot more rats in the party leadership besides these two.
Sanders delegates should push to have all delegates become unbound before the roll call vote. It only seems fair that since the party turned the primaries into a fraudulent exercise that the rank-and-file Democrats be given an opportunity to consider who would be the best candidate among those nominated from the floor. If the party organization was truly not involved in this scheme they should make every effort to try to revise the convention floor nomination so all candidates are treated fairly.
Judith M. Tripp says
I haven’t read everybody’s comments above as yet — but I have THREE THOUGHTS for you. : First — DOES ANYONE REALLY BELIEVE THAT WASSERMAN DIDN’T TELL HILLARY SHE WAS WORKING AGAINST SANDERS IN THIS WAY? Of Course She Did!!!! Yes Folks – I’d bet my literal LIFE and the lives of my pets that HILLARY KNEW IT from the VERY FIRST, and that HILLARY CLINTON BLESSED the practice !!!! Folks – hate to tell you guys this, but NOTHING is aired and NOTHING is done by the DNC and the Powers That Be WITHOUT Hillary’s express blessing and Stamp of Approval. Doing it any other way would get somebody’s ASS fired. Second — when I first learned that the DNC has accused Russia of hacking DNC emails for the express purpose of providing them to the Donald Trump Campaign, I nearly fell off my couch laughing uncontrollably. My GOD – Who in HELL at the DNC (including Hillary Clinton) comes up with this stuff? Do they really believe that THIS stupid , ridiculous conspiracy theory will FLY with anyone other than with someone with no brains??? These kind of LIES continually show what ROTTEN and ABSOLUTELY LYING STORY FABRICATORS are the Clinton Campaign and Hillary Clinton. Hillary is the one in charge, by the way, and here’s the DNC coming out with the same old BALONEY BASKET of LIES. She throws FAKE MUD at the any wall for any purpose using any entities she chooses, hoping that some of it will STICK. Hate to tell you this, but NOTHING AT THE DNC IS AIRED, NOTHING is APPROVED, and NOTHING IS DONE by the DNC WITHOUT HILLARY’S EXPRESS APPROVAL, RUBBER STAMPING, and BLESSING. And if somebody ever DID do anything WITHOUT getting Hillary’s express approval first, I guarantee you their ASS would be FIRED so fast they couldn’t even suck enough air to leave the building. That’s just the way it WORKS. LAST – and this thought goes back to Bill Clinton’s whoring around when he was President – if ANYONE thinks that Monica Lewinski’s sperm-soiled blue dress traveled surreptitiously to Bill Clinton’s secretary’s home WITHOUT Clinton’s express approval and suggestion, whoever believes this is a Giant Nincompoop!!! Bill Clinton (ANOTHER LIAR OF MAGNIFICENT PROPORTIONS) LIED AGAIN under oath when he said that his Secretary moved the evidence COMPLETELY ON HER OWN without his permission or approval from the Oval Office to her own bedroom and stashed it under HER BED. Folks, for the last billion or so years, I’ve been a Trouble-Shooting Researching Executive Assistant for various American Presidents & CEO’s of Billion Dollar Corporations — and if ANYONE out there is so NAIVE as to believe that a SECRETARY to the President of the United States would EVER willy-nilly ON HER OWN move vital evidence from one place to another without the EXPRESS SUGGESTION AND ORDER of her boss, they should take a Secretarial 101 Course immediately. Anyone remember old Rosemary Woods (Nixon’s secretary) who “accidentally” erased a vital portion of one of Nixon’s tapes? I laughed myself silly in the same way when I heard THAT one too. PULEEZE!!!!!!! I even LOVED Richard Nixon and I know of no IDIOTS who would buy that one either. Well, lucky YOU, folks – I’m done for now. HAVE A NICE DAY, EVERYONE !!!
wow – nice work
farmer john says
You ALL should know by now that the DEMORATS are corrupt and always will be. Look at this fool Odumbo telling the American people on national TV how great the economy is, how Isis is on the run, you can keep your doctor….period. and so on and so on. If any of you believe this lying group of idiot’s s you deserve what you get….!
MYSELF………I AM VOTING FOR TRUMP…..2016
I am a Demacrate and not for long. I once was a repuplican but that always wanted more money from me and I live on a small income called Social Secuirty. When Bill Clinton was president he was always beaten up by Hillary. he used to come out of their bedroom with black eyes and cut lips. So you know who is running the show for the DNC it is Hillary. If she talks on a show I turn it off. I am voting for TRUMP all the way .
Ridge Runner says
If you want the true perspective of what the Democratic party is today you really need to take your whole family and office and church to go see the new documentary movie that is now out.
Go see HILLERY’S AMERICA!!!
See the trailer here: http://hillarysamericathemovie.com/#trailer
Now go see the movie and then spread the word.
B. Thompson says
At age 80 I’ve seen ’em come and go but over Nixon Clinton takes the cake! I am widowed, a veteran of the US Marine Corps (Viet Nam era) and since the last financial debacle, and subsisting on SS Disability, Were I in the financial shape of a few years ago, I would donate practically everything I had to Trump. Not that he hasn’t made his share of mistakes, who hasn’t? But Clintons’ are of the character and magnitude to shrink Trumps, to mere nothingness! As a vet who had clearance in my MOS in IT, and widow of a 27 year vet, I certainly WOULD NOT trust her in ANY office, much less Commander -In-Chief to the Armed Forces. I’m still shaking my head over Bills’ tenure, couldn’t believe Obamas’ 1st term and still picking up my jaw over his 2nd. No one I know admits to voting for him so how did he get elected in the first place?! I’ve become a born-again Republican, so PLEASE GOD, NEVER HILERY!!!! ANYONE but!
I can very easily see that the Bernie supporters, even if they do vote for Hillary in November will be so discussed with the Democrat Party as it currently is that they are likely to move to the Libertarian Party and make it the third major party. And if Hillary actually wins which I don’t believe will happen even with all of the cheating that will be going on will be reduced to a shell of it’s former self. The party of Jefferson, the greatest president in the history of this country will be effectively destroyed thanks to Bill and Hill.
Stephen Russell says
If rigged against Sanders, than how many other Dems who ran in past LOST Out to rigged system?
Does this stuff date to 1960??
Some of us aren’t sure where to go next. Not everyone can get behind Trump or Clinton or Sanders. I have been wishing that conservatives and liberals would open their eyes for years, but the same old stuff keeps going on and nothing seems to change. So after taking the World’s Smallest Political Quiz (https://www.theadvocates.org/quiz/quiz.php?iframe=true&width=850&height=100%) I was curious about the Libertarian Party’s position on the very serious issues our beloved country faces. If you want to protect our Constitution, believe we might be better off by being economically conservative but socially liberal, check out the LIbertarian Party platform. What a surprise! An old-fashioned, common sense approach to what matters most. See for yourself. (http://www.lp.org/platform) And former governors Gary Johnson and Bill Weld are the 2016 Libertarian candidates for President/Vice President. These candidates and their Libertarian Party are a breath of fresh air. Please check them out if you’re feeling your party has let you down. They just might save our great country.
Ridge Runner says
Many say Obama WANTS to impose martial law before election time, but God is going to thwart that attempt to a large degree. Millions of Christians know what the Obomination and his billionaire supporters around the world have planned and are praying against it. God is giving America a Cyrus to help as much as can be helped. With Hellery things would only get much worse. Like Cruz, Hillery is for Hillery and no one else.
I strongly urge you to watch this movie trailer and then go to the movie. It is a dramatized documentary on Hillery’s America.
Millions of Democrats simply will not vote this fall because they could not bring themselves to vote for a –OH HEAVENS FORBID– Republican. But with the same result that Trump will (probably) win every state. The Democratic party has just become too leftest, socialist, internationalist, anti Christ — one worlder, and has left the thinking Democrat who are still patriotic Americans.
The Texan says
It would be nice if the current Democrat Party imploded but don’t count on it, And no; Hillary does not have plausible deniability concerning the Sanders charade.
Big Bob says
Damn! After reading all these entries I have to agree with parts of all of them. We all got to admit and realize that BOTH Democratic & Republican parties are corrupt and only interested in their top party people selves. These party’s do not give a damn for the working people in this country who are out there every day sweating their ass off to make a living for their family’s and trying to put maybe their kid’s thru school. Once they got your vote — for who they want and their choice — not yours! then they just say ‘piss off’! They don’t want to hear about your problems. Remember, both party’s who are elected to congress & senate , within two years will be millionaire’s (or maybe already are before elected). You gotta realize that we all are NOT going to become rich! We will (at least 80 per cent of us) be lucky if we can live comfortable when we retire.
You will be ALL needing S.S.I. (social security) later in life and it wont be there if mutts like Republican Ryan & McConnell and their cronies have anything to do with it. They want to privatize it — turn it over to insurance companies! I was listening to C-Span a few days ago and they had a republican congressman who was on the way’s & mean’s committee or something like that and he was talking about how the gov. had to privatize social security and a caller called in and said something like ” The supreme court back in ’64 gave you guys permission to steal from the s.s. fund and since ’64 to present the congress has taken over two and three quarter trillion from the fund. Why don’t the government just stop robbing from the fund, put in a ‘locked box’ strictly for s.s. and it will be solvent again and you don’t need ANY changes — just leave it alone!
Well, This congressman just snickered and said ” Your right. if we left it alone it would stay solvent, it don’t really need any changes, but , you will never get congress to vote for leaving it alone”.
That say’s it all folks, both party’s in active government (congress & senate) are very well off $ wise. They,when they retire will have free medical for life and if I remember right they will have their salary as retirement for life.(This was mentioned a few years back on one of the news shows)
I wish I was younger and smarter! What we need is a grass roots million man march in Washington. Take a lesson from the black society! the Marten King movement. We need all the poor & middle class people to get involved in a march like that and tell Washington that it’s OUR TAX $’s their spending and we all want free health care , free schooling and social security left alone as the first priority’s with our tax $’s. Then secure borders and then military with whatever is left! (Kind of stupid when you keep hearing politicians & media on t.v. saying the u.s.a.has the strongest , best military in the world. Then they flip and say we need more money to beef up our military! ) They’re just after your tax $’s folks and making job’s in the armed services —- then, we gotta keep paying the retirements for the soldiers.
Bernie Sanders has the right ideas, he should not try to convince his supporters to back Clinton. I truly feel he should stay running as a 3rd party candidate , hell he’s already got a few million supporters! I truly feel that every citizen should stop the bull-shit about ” well I’m a democrat or I’m a republican so I gotta vote my party”
You and I are individuals! why don’t we all vote our true feelings on who the best person is and write in your choice for president! I , myself when the election come around , am going to write in Bernie Sanders for president! all his supporters should do the same! Damn, we working class people/ poor / middle class people are like a heard of sheep being led to the slaughter!! It’s time for a big change people! Like I said I wish I was younger and smarter cause I would start a million person march to make our wish’s & demands known before the elections. We need the change, If you vote Democrat or Republican your only going to get the same ‘ole , same ‘ole political bull-shit and no benefit to you as a voter.
We, the tax payers should say how our dollars are spent. We should name the priority’s not our so called “representatives” who only represent the view’s of “the party” not the people.
Judith M. Tripp says
Socialism doesn’t sound so bad, does it? The word is even “friendly”. But Socialism has NEVER, EVER worked – not in the history of the world. Remember what Russia used to be called – the USSR? The Soviet Socialist Republic sold the “socialist” concept to its citizens first as “Socialism” (which sounded great), then it became “Communism” (people sharing with each other equally with a large portion paid to the State), and finally the USSR ran roughshod over its citizens, leaving them in squalor with only the rich getting richer. The USSR finally changed its name back to plain old “Russia”. Venezuela is just another recent example. I read here that some of you love Old Bernie and think highly of his socialistic views. Well, TODAY Bernie Sanders sold out ALL his followers for WHAT, exactly? Democratic favors? Money? A future job in politics? In doing so, he ruined his own legacy. Just think for a moment about the actual cost of giving every kid FREE COLLEGE. First, America doesn’t have the money, so the taxpayers would have to pay for that “Carrot for the Young Votes”. Face it – no country can GIVE EVERYTHING to EVERYONE and have ANYTHING LEFT in the end but its own bare butt. I’m 73, and I remember the Great OLD America (from 1945 to 1965). What a 20 years THAT was!!! Plenty of jobs for anyone who wanted them, so many opportunities, our police were safe and respected (relatively), the department heads of large corporations actually TOOK your phone calls — and NOTHING but NOTHING was outsourced!!! We made practically everything ourselves, and we answered for its quality in America’s court of public opinion. Pretty grand when you think about it. When I first heard Donald Trump speak to Sean Hannity (FOX News contributor) about his dreams for this country and how he desperately wanted to FIX them, I thought to myself ‘Man, if this guy can BEGIN to turn things around, I would die a happy woman’. YES, he’s made six or seven verbal blooping mistakes! YUK! First, he called 45-year old Megyn Kelly a “bimbo”. Well, she’s not “dumb” (and Trump was right that she HAS been called worse), but Megyn is far more interested in her book sales and becoming the next BIG NEWS STAR and THIS is what MOST irritates me about Megyn: Although she’s a Fox News contributor, she has NEVER missed ONE opportunity to splash cold water on Trump any time he gets just a little ahead or enjoys even the smallest of victories regarding public opinion. No, he didn’t start out very “Presidential”. I can attest to the fact that NONE of the corporate heads of billion dollar companies I’ve ever heard speak sound like smooth-talking politicians. But they DO sound like strong leaders who get things done. Donald Trump has been LEARNING from his early bloopers. He knows he can no longer preach about his own personal causes smack in the middle of campaigning. But he’s still that old horse who’s done things HIS way in HIS own barn for five decades! He values competence above all else, and he’s been pretty successful (minus a few failures along the way) – and who among us hasn’t made a few of those in our own lifetimes? THAT’s where his arrogance comes from, coupled with his frustration with the way things are, and the fact he actually believes (and knows) he can effect real change. He’s also strong – mentally and physically and sees CLEARLY our problems as fixable, not as complicated spiderwebs. In his mind, he can see daylight at the end of some pretty dark tunnels. Most important of all, he knows America is on the “brink” of coming apart at the seams. He feels if he doesn’t try, or doesn’t succeed on his first try with any of these problems, he’ll just try something else, and he’ll keep trying and keep trying till things start moving the right direction. At 70 years of age, it sure would be easier to take the easy way down the hill – just playing golf and playing with the grandkids — but certainly NOT risking his health in the next decade trying to fix our incredibly screwed-up country. I truly believe he really CARES about fixing America (and certainly not about adding to HIS personal coffers or for more personal prestige). Think about this: Beginning at age 70 (if elected), Trump has got eight really tough, grueling, complicated years ahead of him. So thank God he’s in great health and is incredibly SMART, He learns quick, listens intently, and knows if he puts the RIGHT people in the RIGHT jobs, that things can actually start to turn around.. This is called “common good business sense”. And I’m going to PRAY like mad that he doesn’t get sick while trying to save us. In the past (at times) he might have sounded like a frustrated, repetitive, exasperated nutcase – but you’d sound like that too if you could SEE the problems and KNEW how to get them going on the right track, but you couldn’t do anything unless you’re willing to give up the next eight years or even your good health and your life trying. At least Donald Trump knows the President’s first and foremost job is to protect America and its citizens from our enemies and at our borders. I feel that voting for Donald J. Trump is the smartest vote I’ll ever cast. Regarding Crooked, Corrupt, Careless and Reckless, Inept Hillary Clinton and her husband, Horny Conniving Old Bill – nothing but two greedy, felonious, spin-talking lawyers. I should know – I’ve worked for enough of them.
Big Bob says
Judy Trip: I have to agree with a lot of what you say! My two choices were Senator Sanders and Don Trump. when you listened to them both they were both basically on the same wave length with their ideas.
Only thing scares me now about D.Trump is I feel he has to cozy up to Ryan who’d flush you down the drain real quick, and Mitch McConnell would too and those two are the top dogs in the republican party. I was a Republican up to when Georgie Bush brown-nosed his way to the presidency and went to war in Iraq , then his second term (hope ya remember it) he came on t.v. and with his smug, arrogant air said something like “the people elected me to a 2nd term. I got a big surplus of money—-and I’m gonna spend it!!!” The bastard did and put us from a surplus to over 2 trillion in debt! thats what scares me about the republicans.
Democrats , with Clinton running is just a sad & sick Joke! We’re all shafted with either party so the called socialist idea don’t sound too bad right now.
When you think of it, you said the people in Russia, the communist party/socialist party screwed over the working citizens etc . This is true. But, isn’t our so called democratic republic government doing the same to us right here in the u.s.a.? Their just doing it sneakier. Our gov. officials are getting rich, the public sector sure isn’t.
I think ANY government, including socialist would be great for the people, IF , and that’s a BIG IF! the elected officials ran the government honestly.
I do feel your right now — about Senator Sanders, I probably won’t write him in now cause he has sort of shafted all his followers—-including me. Trump will maybe get my vote if I can be convinced Ryan & McConnell are not leading him by the nose.
I still feel we need a million man march on Washington! But like you were saying lady, your in your 70’s , I just turned 80 last month.
