As he has throughout the presidential campaign, Sanders made no criticism of the record of the Obama administration and maintained a criminal silence on American militarism and the growing danger of war with Russia and China.

His declaration that he will continue the campaign through the final primaries and right up to the convention was a response to the intensified campaign by Democratic Party officials to drive him from the presidential contest, demanding that he acknowledge that Clinton has an insurmountable lead in convention delegates, largely due to her overwhelming support among "superdelegates," the party officials and officeholders who are not bound by the primary and caucus voting in their states.

Over the last several days, the corporate-controlled media has joined with the Democratic Party establishment in vilifying the conduct of Sanders supporters at the state Democratic convention in Nevada, portraying them as violent and disruptive. The obvious purpose of this propaganda campaign is to intimidate the Sanders campaign and push the candidate out of the race.
