  • DNC members discuss undermining Sanders (again) at convention

    Get the popcorn ready! Straight from left-leaning Politico. Sanders is so foul even some Democrats are yet again coming together to keep his old scraggly communist ass out. Hopefully they see him for what he is.



    DNC members discuss rules change to stop Sanders at convention

    The talks reveal rising anxiety over the Vermont senator's momentum on the eve of voting.


    DES MOINES, Iowa — A small group of Democratic National Committee members has privately begun gauging support for a plan to potentially weaken Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and head off a brokered convention.

    In conversations on the sidelines of a DNC executive committee meeting and in telephone calls and texts in recent days, about a half-dozen members have discussed the possibility of a policy reversal to ensure that so-called superdelegates can vote on the first ballot at the party’s national convention. Such a move would increase the influence of DNC members, members of Congress and other top party officials, who now must wait until the second ballot to have their say if the convention is contested.

    No different than what they did in 2016. Probably just a continuation of policy with not much discussion required. Old news. The Clintonites are convinced that a moderate subservience to the corporate oligarchs is the way to go. A large part of the nation is in denial. Massive change is necessary and people despise change. So, they make up whatever narrative they need to convince themselves that the need doesn't exist, like "The economy is doing better than evah!" "Climate change is a hoax!"

    Denial makes up the majority of the Trump cult, who he is, what he is doing to the country, etc.

        The economy is doing great for the 1%, but since 2008, it's been a completely rigged economy. While the economy soars for those at the top, the middle class is shrinking, evictions are going up and homelessness is going up. Wages are still stagnant. Unemployment is down because millions of Americans hold multiple jobs. Benefits for labor are declining while health care costs climb. 40% of Americans couldn't cover a $400 dollar emergency. It's a sham economy.
