For those who’ve not seen this, a petition from Dr. Jill Stein: Google – stop censoring Jill Stein! On google, searching on ‘presidential candidates’ doesn’t include Jill or the Green Party, only Trump, Clinton, and Johnson. … Continue reading →
From an article he published in The Guardian, entitled “Obama Has Failed Victims of Racism and Police Brutality.” This paragraph is in the middle of the article: This November, we need change. Yet we are tied in a choice between Trump, who would be a neo-fascist catastrophe, and Clinton, a neo-liberal disaster. That’s why I am supporting Jill Stein. I am with her – the only progressive woman in the race – because we’ve got to get beyond this lock-jaw situation. I have a deep love for my brother Bernie Sanders, but I disagree with him on Hillary Clinton. I … Continue reading →
The Clinton-Sanders Unity Summit Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will formally declare an end to their political rivalry Tuesday, a moment that couldn’t come quickly enough for the former secretary of state trying to unite Democrats against Donald Trump. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, hopes to rev up voters on the left with help from Sanders. The 74-year-old self-described democratic socialist excited the liberal base and won young voters by large margins. The joint rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is a start in putting to rest Democratic fears of a political nightmare scenario: that Sanders might sit on his hands … Continue reading →

Say what you want about the political stripes of John Kass, Chicago Tribune columnist, I don’t care, but read his column. He says, and I think rightly so, and I suspect the majority of my fellow birdies here agree, that Hillary has disqualified herself for the presidency. Rather than lick our wounds because Comey declined to prosecute, it is time for honest progressives to say what we think needs to be done, in the near future, and beyond. Kass is particularly brutal, but brutally honest: The Republicans didn’t do this to her. The mad barbarian Donald Drumpf, ranting and shouting … Continue reading →
I am posting this for discussions sake (I borrowed @nomandates flame-retardant suit) and think the likelihood of such a scenario are about as slim as can possibly get but like I’ve said time and time again, I love a good discussion and hearing all your points of view. Plus I see a good deal of benefit to ‘Progressives’ in having the Green Party reach the thresholds for federal funding and debate participation. Green party’s Jill Stein invites Bernie Sanders to take over ticket Bernie Sanders has been invited to continue his underdog bid for the White House by the Green party’s probable … Continue reading →
Feeling the Bern, R.I. progressives forcing primaries Energized by Bernie Sanders’ decisive victory in Rhode Island, about a dozen progressives are challenging more conservative Democratic state legislators in September primaries . In Pawtucket and Providence, Warwick and West Warwick, progressives are lining up to challenge Democratic incumbents, bolstering the strongest field of “real Democrats” in years, said Samuel W. Bell, state coordinator of the Rhode Island Progressive Democrats. Wednesday marked the end of a three-day window for Rhode Islanders to declare their candidacies, and some of the challengers helped catapult Sanders to victory in the state’s April 26 primary. While … Continue reading →
Sanders: Democrats Need To Wake Up Surprise, surprise. Workers in Britain, many of whom have seen a decline in their standard of living while the very rich in their country have become much richer, have turned their backs on the European Union and a globalized economy that is failing them and their children. And it’s not just the British who are suffering. That increasingly globalized economy, established and maintained by the world’s economic elite, is failing people everywhere. Incredibly, the wealthiest 62 people on this planet own as much wealth as the bottom half of the world’s population — around … Continue reading →
Obama Jumps Into Wisconsin Senate Race For Russ Feingold President Barack Obama is sending out a fundraising email Monday morning for Russ Feingold, one of the Democrats’ best prospects for picking up a Senate seat this year. Feingold is running to retake his old Senate seat from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who defeated Feingold in 2010. During his 18 years in the Senate, Feingold was known as one of the chamber’s most progressive members, and this time, Democrats see him as one of their top candidates. “Russ isn’t afraid to stand up for what he knows is right, even when … Continue reading →
Sanders In Syracuse Bernie Sanders, who urged supporters to seek elected office and continue his “political revolution,” began fulfilling his part of the bargain with a Friday-night campaign rally in one of New York’s larger college towns, with the formidable apparatus of the Sanders presidential campaign — sound systems, a live band and security agents at the doors. All of it was for Eric Kingson, a 70-year-old professor at Syracuse University who decided last year that the 24th Congressional District, which Republicans captured in 2014, could use his expertise in Social Security. The soft-spoken Kingson was passed over by most … Continue reading →
Bernie Sanders says that he will vote for Hillary Clinton.
Asked on MSNBC’s Morning Joe whether he will vote for Clinton in November, Sanders responded “Yes.”
The Vermont senator, who has not yet formally ended his 2016 campaign, said that stopping Donald Trump from becoming president must be an overarching goal.
“I think the issue right here is I’m gonna do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump,” he said.
Sanders also insisted that his continuing presence in the race is not causing disunity in the Democratic Party.
“You talk about disunity. I talk about involving the American people in the political process,” he said
Bernie Sanders says he won’t endorse Hillary Clinton Sen. Bernie Sanders told talk show host Stephen Colbert on Thursday that he doesn’t plan to endorse Hillary Clinton in her general-election race against Donald Trump. Sanders flatly said “no” when asked by Colbert whether he would endorse Clinton, who has effectively clinched the Democratic presidential nomination. He also told Colbert he’s “absolutely” continuing his campaign and said the need to “transform America,” is more important than political campaigns. “All of you and everybody else who’s watching have got to be involved in the political process, have got to stand up and fight for the kind … Continue reading →
