Bernie still has an outside shot at the nomination. That being the FBI probe into her email scandal actually produces charges before the convention. Then the question would be will the Democrats put a potential felon up for the presidency? Assuming that she presses on to the convention floor. And if she does would the superdelegates defect? Would she lose the convention if it goes to a 2nd or 3rd round of voting?

I would say Bernie should do his best in the remaining primaries and hope lightning strikes. Though what would the Democrats do if she is charged after the convention?


I think this is the real reason Bernie is staying in until the convention.

The program became what we know today after the Telecommunications Act was passed by Clinton and initiated universal service fund (USF) fees to pay for it.



So the following in Your opinion is not a 'Fact' but what?

Conservative critics have claimed the FCC's Lifeline program is a wasteful government handout and referred to it as the "Obamaphone" program.

"Here’s the truth. The Lifeline program long predates the current administration," Clyburn said in the speech at the New America Foundation. "It was actually created during the Reagan administration, so let's give credit where credit is due. The Lifeline program is a legacy President Reagan could be proud of."

*Congress first enacted the Lifeline program in 1985, and the FCC expanded the program to cover cellphone service in 2005 during the George W. Bush administration.


Edit: I don't have a cell phone and haven't used one since 2001. So I'll recuse Myself from commenting. Please disregard anything I've typed on this.

Mmmm goodwill donations..talk to me when you've volunteered at soup kitchens and shelters, since you seem to want to compare generosity for some reason..

Urhhhh.....I worked as a Social Worker, providing FREE parenting education to new parents. I worked at a Community Mental Health center providing FREE counseling to anyone who needed it. I worked as a day-care provider charging only $50 per week. I worked in the Public Schools helping special ed kids with Severe Behavioral/Developmental/Emotional disorders get FREE educations.

So don't even start with me about "volunteering" at soup kitchens. I was the person taking people FOR FREE to the food banks, to the clinics, etc. So shut it.
"Wardaddy."

Is that enough "helping" for you? Goddammit.

And the stupid frickin' "Obama Phone" thing started clear back with Woodrow Wilson - but of course you would begrudge poor people having access to emergency assistance.....let them burn - let them die - screw them.

People like you make me furious. Absolutely furious.

Yes - furious. People like you - what is the term? Starts with a "a", rhymes with "troll"..........

Bullsnip. You are counting super delegates. He is within spitting distance of her for pledged delegates.

It's about time Sanders cleans house:

New allegations raised that Bernie Sanders campaign is being sabotaged from within by high level staff with ties to Hillary Clinton.


As a grassroots organizer in South Carolina, all I can say is that what Nico saw in North Carolina, we saw similar things in South Carolina. We were being sabotaged on a regular basis. And not just grassroots either. The "Official" campaign here has replaced the staff in their field offices 4 times each. Except Aiken, for some reason that staff only got replaced 3 times.

We would get sent out to knock on doors of "Confirmed" Bernie supporters and find that they were either (1) ardent Hillary supporters or (2) had moved away a year ago. I'm telling you, we were definitely sabotaged.

Yeah those figures count super delegates. They're not abandoning Hillary. That's how many she has. Sure we can say the race is closer if we pretend they don't count. But they do.

A lot can happen between now and June. He's not out of the running yet...those people don't have to decide until they are on the convention floor.

If he has raised even more money and he does well in the Western states coming up, it will be a clear signal that the people REALLY DO want him. She's a tool of TPTB.

I think Bernie is missing a great opportunity to set up a real working Socialist model. But I guess that takes real money


And suffering.

Make no mistake, going from our total capitalist model to a more socialist one, would mean a LOT of industries being "broken" for a time as it all shakes out.

Simply put, our economy is far too vulnerable to try such an experiment at this time. This is the silver lining in the cloud of Bernie's inevitable defeat. If he got elected, and got his initiatives passed (very unlikely), we would have to suffer through this period of readjustment, and may not have survived it.

Those people decided already. They decided before the primaries began. Bernie hopes they will change their minds.

And if they are responsible, they will have to think very hard about who they throw their support to......especially if he is so close at the end....and has more of the popular vote.

And of course, that's all assuming the FBI email thing goes away, and all the other dirt on her....today they were saying that her campaign had infiltrator spies who worked for Bernie.
His facebook pages got taken down by some rummy named casey. Disgusting.

That isn't going to happen not him getting more of the popular vote, not him making some big comeback in the next few weeks and not the FBI indicting Hillary for anything.
It was a nobel effort and I probably would have voted for him if he had won the nomination.

A Bernie victory now would require he gather about 80% of the remaining delegates .
Sure it's mathematically possible but it's not very probable.

As far as spies go.Do you remember Watergate? Republicans planted listening devices in the DNC headquarters in the Watergate Holel in Washington D.C..(It's picture often flashes up behind the screens here ).
The debacle brought down a president. It was an extremely big deal.
People should think before they start with that. On top of all the # they heap on Mrs Clinton do you think she'd risk adding that to the mix?.
