The Absolute Thrill of Bernie Sanders

Look at Bernie's face.  You know the handsome dude just said, "Bernie, it's raining, whattareya doing out here?"  And Bernie got all sheepish bc part of him knew that was true.

This picture makes me love Bernie so much it gives me a stomach ache:


Nothing need be said to understand this picture:

I will mention that Poor "Local Girl" Hillary could not find enough supporters for a rally at the Albany Convention Center [after Actual Local Boy Bernie had almost 20,000 in the Bronx].  She will be holding an "organizing event" instead, at a local HS Auditorium:

[ps - In my county, in a TINY town, we had 145 people at an organizing event.  We'd have half-filled the HS auditorium, and uh - we had no celebritiies, no candidates.  Just people who wanted to learn what we could do to help.  That was only one organizing event, there were others in the same county with similar numbers, but in regular towns, not tiny ones.)

UPDATE 1:04 p.m.: Hillary Clinton's campaign website has moved a Monday organizing event to Cohoes High School. Doors will open at 4:15 p.m.

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton will visit Albany on Monday. A̶c̶c̶o̶r̶d̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶h̶e̶r̶ ̶c̶a̶m̶p̶a̶i̶g̶n̶ ̶w̶e̶b̶s̶i̶t̶e̶,̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶m̶e̶r̶ ̶S̶e̶c̶r̶e̶t̶a̶r̶y̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶S̶t̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶N̶e̶w̶ ̶Y̶o̶r̶k̶ ̶S̶e̶n̶a̶t̶o̶r̶ ̶w̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶h̶o̶l̶d̶ ̶a̶ ̶r̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶a̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶E̶m̶p̶i̶r̶e̶ ̶S̶t̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶P̶l̶a̶z̶a̶ ̶C̶o̶n̶v̶e̶n̶t̶i̶o̶n̶ ̶C̶e̶n̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶M̶o̶n̶d̶a̶y̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶n̶i̶n̶g̶.̶ ̶D̶o̶o̶r̶s̶ ̶o̶p̶e̶n̶ ̶a̶t̶ ̶4̶:̶1̶5̶ ̶p̶.̶m̶.̶ . Clinton and challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders have been making campaign stops in New York ahead of the primary set for April 19th.


Violence on the campaign trail.  I will speak to this, bc it is very important to me.  To be charged with Assault, one need not strike the other person (striking is the battery part, of Assault and Battery).  I believe her reaction to Greenpeace reporter was assault, at best.   I have never, in my entire life, seen someone jab their finger so hard and so close to someone's face, except for my crazy violent father.  

If I had been the questioner, there is no doubt I would have had an instinctive fear that I was about to be slapped in the face.  My stomach would have clenched, and I'd have been frozen.  

Hillary Clinton assaulted a reporter and the "feminists" are still defending her, claiming she merely pointed or wagged her finger and those who are unhappy with it are "sexists."  Apparently they confuse feminism with martyrdom and victimhood.  Cause the assault wasn't even close to merely pointing or wagging - it was JAB JAB JABBING, and I am pretty sure if a man had done it, the "feminists" would not be defending it.  

Makes me sick to my stomach to watch.


The "rejected debates debacle"

The three times offered were:  

1.  During GOOD MORNING AMERICA, which is so ludicrous I SINCERELY thought the article was mistaken.  Not an actual offer.  Her camp never intended that offer to be accepted.  It's a joke of an "offer."

2.  The night before Wi.  Well sure, Hillary could do the night before WI for TWO REASONS:  1.  She has already pulled out of the state.  2.  She would have had a great reason to cancel the embarrassing "event" she is having in Albany tonight in a local high school auditorium.  You know those pictures are gonna just be sad.

3.  During the NCAA final game.  Just asinine.  You want people to watch, or don't you?  But that's not all.  It's the TONE.  The spitting, angry, petulant LIAR'S TONE her entire camp has when they discuss Bernie's reaction to these laughable offers.

ANYONE who doubts that her bread and butter is people who will NOT read the article or who are NOT sharp enough to realize that you don't have a PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE in the midst of fucking CAKE RECIPES and CELEBRITY ASSES, then you aren't paying attention.

What makes me incredibly happy is that SO MANY OF US ARE paying attention.  Our crowds, everywhere, are HUGE.  We raised twice as much as she did in February.  We BEAT his goal of 43.5 million and instead topped 44 million.  From US.  While she is having dinners with Clooney for 353,000 dollars a plate, and hanging with the Riches over at the Dakota, he is in a park with 20000 people in the South Bronx.


In short, I love Bernie Sanders.

Too late for short, right??  Look, there are also a whole SLEW of articles out recently that say, "As his campaign winds down bc he cant win...."  Dude has won 6 of the last 7 primaries and WI will make it 7 of 8. CONSERVATIVE Republicans who LIKED Sarah Palin, are voting for BERNIE.  I know two!!

GET on the right side of history before it is too late, my friends!!

I know I keep saying I am going to do one on prisons and specifically how unjustly full of brown people they are.  BUT - this will not be a typical Jane post, bc it's really important, and I have hit a snafu - the main report I thought to use to compare old and new info seems to have LOST 800,000 prisoners while O has been in office.  Now, I realize this is POSSIBLE, but I am not buying it.  So, first I have to figure where those 800,000 prisoners went, so I know I am working with proper information.

Hillary Clinton assaulted a reporter and the "feminists" are still defending her, claiming she merely pointed or wagged her finger and those who are unhappy with it are "sexists."

What Hillary did showed how unstable she really is.  <-- THAT was said by a rabid feminist.  The people who are calling objecting to that might be feminists (though I doubt they actually are), but reacting negatively to Hillary's assault is far from sexist (and I wonder how many people realize the reporter was a woman too???  Does that make Hillary sexist???).

BTW, Hillary "Stand By Your Man" Clinton has done more harm to gender and LGBT rights than most and SHE certainty doesn't qualify as a feminist icon in my book.  I'm not alone in that thinking, regardless of what the old hags at Corporate Owned Feminists Inc. (aka NOW) think.

BTW, you might like reading this.  It 'splains it well.

Read it.  This is striking:   "Bloomberg Businessweek commented that “Clinton turned the State Department into a machine for promoting U.S. business.” She sought “to install herself as the government’s highest-ranking business lobbyist,” directly negotiating lucrative overseas contracts for U.S. corporations like Boeing, Lockheed, and General Electric."

Hillary has to be finding it frustrating to be up against a candidate who plays it that straight and is successful doing it. How do you prepare for that? It's like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington came to life. And it's not even someone who looks like Jimmy Stewart, it's this old Jewish guy from Brooklyn who sounds it. He's getting millions in donations and he refuses corporate donations. He what?? How the Hell can you get anywhere doing that? How could anyone see this coming? Where's the dirt? Whattaya mean there is none??

Also, from an article she wrote in 2011:  "Clinton’s article also elaborated on the role of U.S. military power in advancing these economic goals. The past “growth” of eastern Asia has depended on “the security and stability that has long been guaranteed by the U.S. military,” and “a more broadly distributed military presence across the region will provide vital advantages” in the future."

Kosher - agreed wholeheartedly.  It is powerful, heady times we are living in!  Mr Sanders goes to Washington!

Come June 7th he'll be getting my Green Vote even if I have to change party registration to vote Dem.

I love Bernie.    Passionate writing here, thanks.  

I am Hillary...bitchy grandma who is more mean than nice.   I don't like that part of me.  My daughter loves Bernie and I wish I could be him and not Hillary.  sigh

Comment by DaisyJane on April 3, 2016 at 9:06am

JMac - you dont know how happy that makes me!!

Z?  Me too.  Nowhere near as good a person as Bernie is!  That's why I want him for president!!

Comment by Anna Herrington on April 3, 2016 at 9:34am

I'm nervous about WI as the only people I know there are so conservative as well as conservative Christian (the afraid of yoga and crystals kind, they might steal your faith, kind) they would never vote for Sanders.... thankfully, I don't know many, there.  Just the family. (erk.) (in-laws.... and lovely humans if you don't talk about anything like politics, and stay on the surface....I mean, **stay on the surface!**  which I suck at at family gatherings)....(I can't bring myself to ask but they likely love Ted (puke))

fingers crossed!

And your Hillary finger jabbing link isn't working, for me anyway (couldn't resist having another peek, I get all nostalgic watching it, it's just like me and mom in the old days (heehee), "How *dare* you confront me! I'm in charge and don't you dare make me look bad by telling the truth!")

Here's YouTube link to it:

My 'Bernie 2016' sticker *finally* arrived yesterday, and I practically hugged the group of strangers walking down the road all wearing Bernie 2016 T-shirts  : )
