Doesn’t it seem a bit “odd” that despite the fact that both Hillary Clinton and her disciples and sycophants in the media have declared Bernie Sanders’ campaign dead and buried, he is still winning primaries? Clinton defeated Barak Obama in Indiana and West Virginia handily in 2008, but in 2016 following a string of losses in “Clinton Country” along the east coast, Sanders outlasted her in Indiana and trounced her in West Virginia, winning every county. This wasn’t supposed to happen; voters in those states were supposed to set aside their “reservations” about Clinton and follow the “herd” now that her nomination is a “fact.”
Sanders appears poised to win next month’s “left coast” primaries, meaning that he will have won near half of the primaries, and a majority of Democratic-leaning states. Exit polls in West Virginia also showed that Sanders’ message resonated far more than either Trump’s or Clinton’s there. What does this mean? It means that despite every effort by the Democratic and media establishment to beat down Sanders, he keeps coming back off the mat, and there are very good reasons for it in the minds of voters of principled stripe who refuse to be cowed by the forces of criminality.
On MSNBC the other day, Sanders told Clinton media surrogate Andrea Mitchell that there were multiple areas in which to attack Clinton on her record and her ethics (or more specifically, the lack thereof), Bill Clinton’s “personal life,” and the den of skullduggery called the Clinton Foundation. But he has chosen to concentrate on the issues; Donald Trump could do as he wished and probably will if Clinton is the Democratic nominee—and in my opinion she would deserve every bit of it, for all the lying and deceiving she has done.
Mitchell had the audacity to accuse Sanders, along with Trump, of allowing Clinton to get “beat up on two fronts.” Not surprisingly, this yet another example of the pro-Clinton media efforts to marginalize Sanders and force-feed the corrupt Clinton on unwilling voters did not sit well with him. Despite what the Clinton media thinks, he has a right to “make his case to American people,” and tired as millions of us are of the media protecting their precious Hillary—and this corrupt serial liar needs all the “protection” she can get—Sanders quite rightly retorted that “In every state that we have won, in 19 states, we have had to take on the entire Democratic establishment. We've had to take on senators and governors and mayors and members of Congress. That's what we have taken on, so please do not moan to me about Hillary Clinton's problems.”
Sanders could have mentioned that because of Clinton’s career of operating outside the law and lying about it could be construed as bringing on all of her problems unto herself—not by Trump or himself. The Clinton News Network forgot to report that a federal judge ruled that Clinton could be subpoenaed to testify under oath in a case brought forward by the conservative Judicial Watch for violating open records laws by the use of a private email server for government business. Still on the horizon is the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email server business, but FBI Director James Comey threw cold water on any “timely” release of its findings, claiming now that it is "not tethered to any external deadline.” He outrageously further declared that he could not promise that the investigation would be ended by even the time of the Democratic Convention"
Comey implied that Clinton would be questioned, but Clinton herself stated that no one has yet contacted her concerning it. He further added to his lack of credibility by stating “There are no special rules for anybody.” Many of us would beg to differ; Clinton has had the benefit of “special rules” for decades now. When is she going to pay the price for it? Only the voters can do it, as they did in 2008. Unfortunately it may have to be this November, instead by the Democratic Convention.
