War criminal Obama ensorses pre-ordained war criminal Clinton

One corrupt war criminal endorses another

President Barack Obama endorses Hillary Clinton in video

President Barack Obama endorsed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a web video Thursday.

"I don't think there's ever been someone so qualified to hold this office," Obama said in the video

Important articles.

At the moment it seems Killary has won the battle but lost the war and support for the Democratic Party is haemorrhaging.

That means a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for Donald Trump.

But Hillary Clinton is clearly the pre-ordained choice of the corporate Establishment

I don’t imagine they are going to sit by and allow Donald Trump to be elected president of the United States.

What next?

Hillary Clinton Already Chosen Democrat Party Nominee Last Year, Prior to the Election Campaign

Stephen Lendman

7 June, 2016

The Democrat party campaign was over before it began. On April 15, 2015, Clinton and Sanders both formally announced their candidacy to become party standard bearer this November.
Primaries and caucuses since last winter were largely theatrical noise, the process rigged to anoint Clinton – an unindicted neocon war criminal, racketeer, Wall Street tool she devil, a menace threatening world peace, a perfect choice for US president, following in the despicable tradition of husband Bill, George W. Bush and Obama. 

The possibility of her becoming America’s 45th president should scare everyone. Her finger on the nuclear trigger heightens the possibility of it being squeezed – the nation under her stewardship, if elected, transitioning from MAD to madness, humanity’s survival at risk.
According to AP News, she already has enough delegates to be Democrat party nominee, including unelected insider super-delegates, overwhelmingly backing her – ahead of six June 7 primary results, 

California the big one.

Obama’s official endorsement awaits, heavy pressure put on Sanders for party unity. His 30-year political history shows when pushed he bends, supporting what he rhetorically opposed.
He pledged several times to endorse Clinton if nominated. His House and Senate voting record largely mirrors her imperial agenda – pure evil by any standard.
He barely stopped short of conceding ahead of Tuesday’s primaries, saying he’ll return to Vermont on Wednesday to “assess where we are.”
His comment followed a weekend call from Obama ahead of the president formally endorsing Clinton, likely getting Sanders to agree not to contest her following Tuesday’s primaries.
Her rise to become Democrat party nominee reflects a debauched US political system, an uninformed, brainwashed, indifferent electorate, and a corrupted media establishment led by The New York Times.
Its editorial board outrageously calls her “the most broadly and deeply qualified presidential candidate in modern history” – followed by a litany of misinformation, distortions, and Big Lies about her public record, suppressing her high crimes demanding daily headline
A Clinton presidency assures Wall Street and America’s military-industrial-intelligence establishment continuing to make policy, endless wars raging, new ones likely, possibly challenging Russia and China belligerently.
No matter who succeeds Obama, dirty business as usual will continue unimpeded – monied interests exclusively served at the expense of popular ones and world peace

CA touchscreen machine gives Sanders vote to another candidate

Post California: Bernie Sanders gains leverage as Hillary’s bullying backfires, Democratic Party loses support

9 June, 2016

Bernie Sanders won a bigger contest on June 7. He solidified support for a revolution based on the rejection of the corrupt establishment.

Even the Los Angeles Times warned, “Sanders and his followers have a list of demands for changes… they intend to press at the convention in Philadelphia next month.”

Hillary Clinton made a bullying move reminiscent of Donald Trump, holding a media-studded event in Brooklyn — the birth city of Bernie Sanders — proclaiming herself the Democratic nominee a full seven weeks before she could actually officially become it and before the polls in California had even closed.
This came on top of Bill Clinton mocking Sanders’ supporters, saying “They’re toast for election day.”

Add to that the suspicious California vote tally in the face of such fervent Sanders’ support, and the result was the further mass rejection of the establishment — especially the Democratic Party.

Good-bye Democratic Party - our forty years together is OVER!

Bernie Sanders inspired 227,000 people to attend his rallies throughout California in the weeks before the primary there. This and other record-breaking feats, such as his mega fundraising from average Americans instead of large corporations, has proven that there is a significant sector of the United States’ population that supports Sanders to be the Democratic presidential nominee.

We're building a movement for democratic change. At every level. We will not yield. We are not leaving

It remains to be determined if that sector represents the majority of Americans. While Clinton is on the record as having more votes than Sanders, it is difficult to know how many people actually support Sanders to be the Democratic nominee due to challenging factors such as the awkward vote counting of caucuses, the primaries that denied Independents the ability to vote, and the voter issues in several states, where ballots were allegedly missing and polling places were shut down.

But June 7 made clear that whatever the total of Sanders’ supporters — and it is millions — those self-named “Bernie Believers” are moving further away from Clinton and the Democratic Party, not loser.

Elections so rigged, they're not even hiding it anymore. Bye, party. Green Party all the way.

Supporters of Sanders’ movement became more staunch screamers for revolution when the California early results showed Hillary Clinton leading by more than 24 percent. Rally goers in Santa Monica, California, chanted “B.S.” without the acronym. The score the day after was a closer gap of 55 to 43 percent, but many are both doubting the California results and challenging them.

There were potentially millions of ballots that had yet to be counted the morning after the California primary. And this state’s contest was not open — it was a “modified closed primary” where No Party Preference voters were the only people other than registered Democrats who could vote for Bernie Sanders. However, there was a catch — the No Party Preference voters had to know to request the Democratic Ballot. Otherwise, they were given one with no presidential candidates on it.

This is what looks like. You can steal our votes but not our souls.
Everyone in California and other states who faced voting challenges in the primaries will be able to vote much more easily in the general election, and they still want to vote for Bernie, as evidenced by the hashtag, #StillSanders.

Look at our people who are and ready to fight. is my hero.

Excitement is building for a showdown at the Democratic Convention where the Bernie Sanders-led revolution will just be beginning, not ending, no matter the decision of the super delegates.
As the New York Times reported, “Far from backing down, Mr. Sanders promised to take his campaign to the Democratic convention in Philadelphia this summer.”
And there remains a path for Sanders to run for president via the Green Party, if he is not happy with the outcome at the Democratic Convention. The Green Party’s presidential candidate, Jill Stein, has been wooing Sanders, and perhaps she would allow him to be at the top of the ticket.

After June 7, Bernie Sanders and his supporters have become a bigger problem for Hillary, not a smaller one, despite her jumping to the conclusion of being the nominee. At best, she is the presumptive nominee, presumed so by the establishment and the mainstream media, which excludes millions of Americans, and angers them in a way that is likely irreversible.
Bernie Sanders and his supporters are enjoying a summer of increasing leverage against an establishment that is embodied by Hillary Clinton. As Sanders supporters’ have long said, their movement is bigger than the presidency, but they want the presidency, too.
lest we forget.

For Bernie Sanders and his revolution supporters, BBC News summed it up.

It’s not that Mr. Sanders and his most dedicated supporters aren’t going down without a fight. It’s that they’re not going down at all.”

And then there is the almost inevitable betrayal of his followers by endorsing Clinton

Bernie Sanders vows to work with Hillary Clinton as Democrats move toward party unity

Washington (CNN) Democrats took giant steps toward party unity Thursday as Bernie Sanders vowed to work together with Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald Trump in November and President Barack Obama formally endorsed Clinton for president.

Sanders' decision to continue his White House bid even after Clinton became the party's presumptive presidential nominee has had Democrats on high alert as they seek to quickly change gears and take on Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Sanders' first explicit promise on Thursday to join forces with Clinton to take on the Republicans will help quell concerns among Democrats about divisions in the party.
Emerging from the White House after a meeting with Obama that lasted more than an hour, Sanders warned that a Trump presidency would be a "disaster" and that he would "work as hard as I can to make sure that Donald Trump does not become president of the United States."
"I look forward to meeting with (Clinton) in the near future to see how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump and to create a government which represents all of us and not just the 1%," Sanders told reporters.
The senator thanked both Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for showing "impartiality" during the course of the Democratic campaign.
"They said in the beginning that they would not put their thumb on the scales and they kept their word and I appreciate that very, very much," Sanders said.
He added that he will monitor a "full counting of the votes" in California, where Clinton won the Democratic primary contest on Tuesday. The results will show "a much closer vote," Sanders predicted.
In a press briefing Thursday afternoon, White House spokesman Josh Earnest described the meeting as a "friendly conversation that was focused on the future," and said Obama congratulated Sanders on his "remarkable accomplishment" in the Democratic race.
Shortly after the meeting, the White House released a video in which Obama enthusiastically backed Clinton and acknowledged the historic achievement of her becoming the first woman to win a major party's presidential nomination. He will join Clinton on the campaign trail for the first time next week in Wisconsin.
"I don't think there's ever been someone so qualified to hold this office," Obama said in the video of Clinton, whom he defeated eight years ago.
He also thanked Sanders in the video for running an "incredible campaign" and for shining a spotlight on issues such as economic inequality and the influence of money in politics.
Sanders' high-profile meeting with Obama and his public remarks afterward come just days after Sanders declared that he intends to continue his 2016 campaign. At a rally Tuesday night, Sanders had declined to acknowledge that Clinton had secured the necessary delegates to win her party's nomination. He vowed to forge ahead to the District of Columbia's primary next week, and then on to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta said their camp would would like to quickly mend fences and unify the party.
"Nothing has been scheduled yet, but I think both sides want to make sure that it happens and happens soon," Podesta told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. He added that they would "welcome" Sanders campaigning for Clinton.
"If you go back to 2008 after it became clear that President Obama had won the pledged delegates and was going to be the nominee of the Democratic party, that's exactly what Hillary did," he said. "Even after that hard-fought campaign, she went out and endorsed him, asked that his name be put into the nomination by acclimation, she campaigned with him."
The Sanders-Obama meeting Thursday marked the two men's second White House sitdown this primary season and the fourth time they've spoken in the last month. White House officials hoped Obama could prod the Vermont senator toward eventually acting as a unifying figure for the Democratic Party.

In a taping of "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, Obama said he was hopeful that the party will "pull things together."

"The main role I'm going to be playing in this process is to remind the American people that this is a serious job," Obama said. "You know, this is not reality TV. I've seen the decisions that have to be made and the work that has to be done."
Since clinching her party's nomination, Clinton has stuck to a conciliatory tone when it comes to her rival.
In her victory speech in Brooklyn Tuesday night, Clinton congratulated Sanders for an "extraordinary campaign" and sought to reach out to his supporters.
"Let there be no mistake: Sen. Sanders, his campaign, and the vigorous debate that we've had about how to raise incomes, reduce inequality, and increase upward mobility, have been very good for the Democratic Party and for America," Clinton said.
Thursday helped shed light on Sanders' intentions and state of mind -- particularly the role he hopes to play in his party -- as the general election kicks off in earnest.
Sanders sat down in the afternoon with his longtime friend and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who has publicly said Sanders should "give up." Reid described the meeting to reporters afterward as a "good visit," and emphasized that Sanders has the good will of the Senate Democratic caucus. The Nevada senator said Sanders made no mention of changing the reality that Clinton is the party's presumptive nominee, and quipped that Sanders appears to have "accepted that."
Reid also echoed other Democratic leaders, saying, "I'm not pushing him to do anything."
Prior to that meeting, one source familiar with Reid's thinking said he believes Sanders can be helpful in Senate races, including in raising money, and is open to any number of ways to unite the party.
Sanders also met with Biden late Thursday afternoon to discuss some of the issues central to his campaign, including income inequality, big money in politics and "the need to reform our politics," according to a statement from Biden's office. But the vice president did not offer an endorsement.
To cap off a whirlwind day of meetings, Sanders held an evening campaign rally in Southeast Washington.
The senator delivered his usual stump speech, touching on issues of economic, social, racial and environmental justice. But his remarks also reflected on the arc of his unlikely campaign and what he and his supporters have achieved over the last year.
The pundits had underestimated his political revolution, Sanders said. "Well, here we are -- it's mid-June, and we're still standing."
At the event, Sanders supporters acknowledged that the senator was unlikely to be the Democratic nominee for president. They expressed a mix of disappointment and pride -- and frustration with what they said was a lack of viable options.
Sam Mbulaiteye, a researcher from Silver Spring, Maryland, said he was disappointed that Obama endorsed Clinton earlier in the day.
"I think Bernie's message is closer to Obama's message in 2008 -- it's a message of change, hope and about the future," Mbulaiteye, 50, said.
Mbulaiteye was undecided on whether to support Clinton or Trump in the general election. "In terms of being anti-establishment, Trump is closer to Bernie Sanders," he said.
Jenn Fendrick, a 32-year-old stay-at-home-mom from Fairfax, Virginia, lamented "the end of an era" and said she would vote for Clinton in November -- but "not enthusiastically."
This is "hopefully not the end of his movement, though," she said of Sanders. "He's definitely too old to run again."
