Ever get the feeling that you have been marginalized and steam rolled by a giant political machine ~ welcome to California where two million plus primary votes remain uncounted, where voter suppression definitely occurred, and where Queen Hillary is being prematurely anointed by the party elite, President Obama and the Main Stream Media. This is a desperate political attempt to avoid the stark reality of a severely wounded and out of touch party which has lost its credibility and is in the process of losing its base. This election is not over by any means, the revolution continues and needed change must truly happen in July: Allen L Roland, PhD
“It makes no difference who you vote for – the two parties are really one party representing four percent of the people” Gore Vidal
The major clue that the Clinton lie machine was prepared to dump California voters and prematurely crown Hillary the winner of the Democratic primaries was at the Nevada State Democratic State Convention on May 14 and William Boardman (RSN) fills in the details;
“The evidence-free claims about “thrown chairs” (none) and “death threats” (tasteless insults) have been widely rebutted, but they have served their purpose all the same: taking attention away from the arrogant, autocratic management of the Nevada convention by establishment Democrats working on behalf of Hillary Clinton….Their fear of Bernie Sanders must run deep for them to follow this authoritarian performance with a smear campaign based on lies about the Sanders campaign. Establishment Democrats should be afraid, since almost half the voters allowed to vote in Democratic primaries reject establishment Democratic “values.” But their shamelessness, pusillanimity, and obtuse arrogance march on toward a possibly disastrous November that is wholly self-engineered.” Read article ~ Clinton to California / “Drop Dead”
Boardman described the entitled arrogance of the Clinton lie machine but I experienced it in May of 2016 and both wrote about it and shared of it on Susan Lindhauer’s Covert report on May 21, 2016.
I said that the California primary will be a game changer and set the stage for a bitterly contested convention in July. In the end, it always comes down to trust ~ and no one rightfully trusts the Clintons.
With Trump, it’s always about the deal, trust be dammed.
Bernie is trustworthy and that just may hopefully carry the day.
If not, we’re politically doomed. Here’s the promo for that show ~
An epic show down as Fortune’s Wheel spins again! Our guests, Dr. Allen Roland talks about the California Primary, voter suppression, and “scorched earth” threats from Bernie Sanders! While media pundits screech in alarm, Democrats are clearly headed for a Contested-Convention in Philadelphia. Meanwhile Scott Bennett defends Trump from accusations that he’s a Camouflage Candidate…. Episode #209
I was right about the Clinton’s and here’s what actually happened in early May ~
I got my Primary mail in ballot as one of 4.2 million No Party Preference ~ “NPP” voters ~ or what we know as “independents” who favored Sanders over Clinton by a stunning 40 percentage points ~ but I could not vote for Bernie because that choice was clearly not acceptable to the Clinton Machine.
In some counties like Los Angeles, it’s not easy for an NPP to claim their right vote in the Democratic primary ~ and in other counties, nearly impossible. For example ~ In Santa Rosa County, if you don’t say the magic words, “I want a Democratic crossover ballot,” you are automatically given a ballot without the presidential race. And ready for this, if an NPP voter asks the poll worker, “How do I get to vote in the Democratic party primary, they are instructed to say that, “NPP voters can’t get Democratic ballots.” They are ordered not to breathe a word that the voter can get a “crossover” ballot that includes the presidential race.
It took me a few days to call the registrar of voters to request a mail-in cross-over ballot and I barely made the deadline of May 23th to make that request to vote in the June 7th election ~ this was obvious voter obstruction or suppression.
But here’s more to chew on ~ Flipping the electronic voting machines. There are many reports of voting machine irregularities across the state. Poll workers in Los Angeles and Orange County report that Bernie won the electronic votes in their precincts by well over a 2 to 1 margin, the opposite of the result of the vote count. The contrast between this and the outcome is indicative of vote-flipping. This result in another 7 figure number of Bernie Sanders votes not being counted; in fact, this is much worse. Millions of Bernie Sanders votes were actually counted as Hillary Clinton votes
Now you probably understand the not-so subtle voter fraud and suppression the Clinton machine used to produce the election havoc that now reins in California with over two million uncounted votes ~ and on top of that Another dirty trick ~ exit polls were cancelled for California.
Note that the exit polls have not matched the official results OUTSIDE the margin of error in many states in the Democratic primary election. It has been a red flag for fraud. WHY did the networks cancel exit polls in the remaining upcoming primaries? Simple. They do not want to provide a means of evidence to document this grand theft.
The mass media rushed to proclaim Hillary Clinton the winner of the Democratic nomination on June 7th, even before voting in the California primary had taken place. 100,000 people attended a rally for Bernie Sanders, but the mass media failed to mention it at all. On Tuesday, June 7, 2016, the California primary took place. It was, and is, too close to call. Gross voter suppression took place. But the mass media rushed to proclaim Clinton the winner and now you know why.
This is not only sickening but blatant voter suppression. Enough is enough!
This is fear based political overkill by a Democratic political establishment that is married to corporate power as well as the status quo and obviously afraid of the people’s will and vote ~ note super delegate power play.
There needs to be a COMPLETELY new primary election for California. Sign this petition if you support a new free and fair election:
Here’s how WSWS saw the election ~
“The ruling class, and, in particular, the Democratic Party establishment, is far less concerned about the rise of Donald Trump than it is about the broad support for Sanders, which created a political crisis for Clinton and seriously jeopardized her planned coronation. The surge in support for Sanders came as a frightening shock to the entire political establishment—including Sanders himself ~ and the corporate-controlled media, because it demonstrated the emergence of a mass constituency for anti-capitalist, socialistic ideas …… There is a broad consensus, across both parties, that the class issues raised by the Sanders campaign in the primaries must be buried in the general election campaign. The decision has been taken at the highest levels of the political establishment to direct attention to issues of race and gender ~ including deliberately provoking such issues ~ in order to distract the public from the more fundamental economic division in society.”
As Greg Palast confirmed on June 7th ~ [Los Angeles] How California is being stolen from Sanders right now ~ Special bulletin from Greg Palast “It’s not some grand conspiracy, but it’s grand theft nonetheless. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ voters will lose their ballots, their rights, by the tens of thousands.”
Let us hope Bernie insists on a proper counting of those ballots in California, by the convention in July, and by implication a change in party rules to prevent such increasingly obvious election fraud and suppression.
At times like this ~ I always seem to come back to George Carlin’s wise election advice ~ 3 min video ~
Finally , I’m afraid the Democrats will learn all the wrong lessons from their brush with Bernie as Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone strongly suggests;
“Politicians are so used to viewing the electorate as a giant thing to be manipulated that no matter what happens at the ballot, they usually can only focus on the Washington-based characters they perceive to be pulling the strings. Through this lens, the uprising among Democratic voters this year wasn’t an organic expression of mass disgust, but wholly the fault of Bernie Sanders, who within the Beltway is viewed as an oddball amateur and radical who jumped the line.
Nobody saw his campaign as an honest effort to restore power to voters, because nobody in the capital even knows what that is. In the rules of palace intrigue, Sanders only made sense as a kind of self-centered huckster who made a failed play for power. And the narrative will be that with him out of the picture, the crisis is over. No person, no problem.
This inability to grasp that the problem is bigger than Bernie Sanders is a huge red flag. As Thacker puts it, the theme of this election year was widespread anger toward both parties, and both the Trump craziness and the near-miss with Sanders should have served as a warning. “The Democrats should be worried they’re next,” he says.
But they’re not worried. Behind the palace walls, nobody ever is.”
See Tiabbi article ~
But Democrats most certainly should not only be worried but petrified of the danger that lies just outside the palace walls ~ for the ghost of Robert F Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr are inspiring the angry hoards who are demanding a voice in a rapidly disintegrating and corrupt Plutocracy.
Today, in 2016, another election is apparently being stolen from the people of the United States. Both Clinton and Trump are highly unpopular. Polls show that Trump might defeat Clinton in November, but that Bernie Sanders would easily beat Trump. Could it be because Bernie truly represents another life affirming choice of peace and individual empowerment versus more war and individual disenfranchisement and that Bernie also represents the true will and voice of the people ~ which the establishment continues to turn a deaf ear ~ for fear of their own survival.
This election is not over by any means, the revolution continues and needed change must truly happen in July.
“They [Democrats] ought to be horrified to their marrow that the all-powerful Democratic Party ended up having to dig in for a furious rally to stave off a quirky Vermont socialist almost completely lacking big-dollar donors or institutional support.” Matt Tiabbi
