We have been doing all we can to support Bernie even though it seems at this point to be a lost cause. The problem is that it's Bernie against everybody... not only the Republicans, but also the Democrats (the old Jewish Socialist has yet to get a single Senator to endorse him), or a single major news outlet - the New York Times actively opposes him as does the Boston Herald, the Washington Post, and NPR (fake left-leaning rags designed to fool the "intelligentsia" into thinking that there is a viable, left-leaning voice). Is Elizabeth Warren also a fake left-leaner? Is Chuck Shumer one too? What about Bill DeBlasio? Al Franken? Jesse Jackson ? Are they all fake progressives? Not one of them endorsed Bernie. Not one of them. Not even Martin O'Malley.

Recently I created a petition with MoveOn that asked Warren to endorse Bernie. In two days it had 200 signatures when MoveOn blocked it... They said they could not support it, but they would not say why except to say we support "very few petitions." It was depressing, because on their website they encourage members to start petitions. They themselves took a vote and endorsed Bernie! What could they have against a petition to Warren asking her to also endorse him? I emailed them again saying I deserved some sort of explanation. They are ignoring me... imagine being disenfranchised by MoveOn!

Gays love Hillary... why???? Blacks love Hillary... why???

Hillary loves and admires Obama ... why???

Obama is the president who sold us out on the most important issues of substance like Medicare for All which he backed off from when he had a landslide victory and the Dems controlled both houses of congress and the executive branch" instead he gave us his great legacy of compromise: Obamacare that does too little for too few.

Obama is the president who, after receiving the Nobel Peace prize, appointed a Dubya holdover, CIA chief Robert Gates, to be Secretary of Defense, who continued Dubya's endless war in the Middle East...just days after receiving the Peace Prize.

Obama is the president who appointed Sommers, Geitner, Emmanuel, and Holder as well as other Wall Street shills to top administrative positions...

Obama is the president who recently led the Republicans for the TPP...

Obama is the president who has enabled the militarization of our police, homeland security and enables universal surveillance...

Obama is the president who will not grant amnesty to Assange or Snowden or Manning or other heroic whistleblowers ...

Obama is the president who continues to support the privatization of our schools and prisons, indefinite detention without trial, and solitary confinement"

Obama is the president who is actively involved in disastrous regime change...
