With the coronation of Hillary Clinton have we just witnessed a spectacularly orchestrated coup d'etat? Has Trump simply been the rodeo clown that has kept the bull away from the Champion rider? Will we will know the answer when and if he commits another verbal mistake like talking about the "Mexican" judge?

Hillary never really campaigned against Bernie substantively. She didn't need to. She simply ridiculed him.

I don't believe this to be some grand conspiracy where Republicans colluded with Democrats. It was very simply an organic corporate, absolute, once and for all, attempt to takeover of the country. The corporations did not even coordinate and scheme among themselves. They simply exerted pressure, obfuscated, controlled and lied within the limits of their influence. You don't really think they were gonna stand idly by and allow the United States of America be captained by a Socialist do you?

All of us that have posted pieces here focusing on Donald Trump have been played like fish -- we are chumps. I believe Chris Hedges warned us of this -- I certainly didn't listen. It sure was fun writing about him though. How often do you get to honestly compare someone to Adolf Hitler?

Trump slid in through the back door. Corporate America was pushing.

It's all so fuzzy, complicated.

I am genuinely glad for women today -- the candidacy of Hillary Clinton truly is a national milestone. How can anyone defining themselves as a Progressive not be supportive of this significant event? Unfortunately, this has absolutely nothing to do with this current point in time.

The Clintons are a machine. Bernie is Bernie. A machine is made up of many different parts: connectors, levers, switches, capacitors, etc. etc. For a machine to run effectively all the parts must be running smoothly -- all must be serviced and maintained. For Bernie to run effectively he simply needs to stay alive.

Trump never was a real threat. Bernie needs to keep going. Never attack Hillary personally. Stay a Democrat. Build power and influence. Make his movement a force to be reckoned with.

Pound his beliefs into the fabric of the nation. Ward off apathy by becoming something much bigger than this political farce we've been suckered into.

My daughter is twenty-five years old and she is a strong Bernie supporter. I've noticed that she and her contemporaries have, for the most part, just laughed at Trump. She is also a feminist and is not in the least bit supportive of Clinton simply because she is a woman. Her generation has moved on. It's very interesting that she sees a seventy-four year old man as the future of her country. The world has changed -- the machines of the world just don't know it yet.
