Breaking News...Sanders Concedes...Endorses Hillary...


Links ...... heavy.com...





Bernie Sanders brought a close to one of the most successful insurgent campaigns in Democratic Party history.

Hillary Clinton and Sanders united at an event in New Hampshire on Tuesday, where the Vermont senator officially endorsed Clinton.

Sanders spoke first, followed by Clinton at an event designed to move the party closer to unity in the race against Donald Trump.

Sanders began by thanking New Hampshire, his campaign volunteers and the entire state of Vermont for their support of his presidential bid.

“We have begun a political revolution to transform the United States of America,” he said.
“Together we will continue to fight for a government that represents all of us and not just the one percent,
a government based on the economic, social, racial and environmental justice,” he said.
“I am proud of the campaign we ran here in New Hampshire and across the country.”
“Secretary Clinton has won the democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that.

She will be the democratic nominee for president, and I intend to do everything I can to make certain
that she will be the next president of the United States,” Sanders said in front of a roaring crowd.

Although Clinton was declared the presumptive nominee in early June, Sanders refused to concede,
vowing to continue his campaign, until now.

What a sell out

Was the plan from the beginning.

Give the illusion of choice, with very few options; seeing as how it doesn't take much to fool a liberal.

The Trump seems to be an unintended consequence, it was supposed to be Jebby. Then again, the system is rigged, so no matter what it will be Hitlary.

Listening to him today sounds like a different person.

Hate to say it, but he is condoning the proven lies by Hillary.

Personally, I am a Gary Johnson supporter, so I am pretty much over the nonsense in the DNC and RNC, but I have many friends that are die-hard Bernie supporters, including one was picked to be a delegate and go to Philly. As far as I can tell, they all can't stand that he is conceding. They can't stand Hillary (Not that they like Trump either). They all seem so disillusioned at this point and a good many have already told me they won't be voting at all. I have done my best to try and sell the libertarian party, but policy-wise its a tough sell to folks that were buying into a socialist agenda.

Feel the bern indeed. Just a blow hard full of hot air. In the end he bows to his elitist masters.

Regardless, Bernie or no Bernie, I will not vote for Hillary. Bernie should have considered Jill Stein's offer to grasp the Green parties chair and accepted the hail Mary pass.

Bernie Sanders has been invited to continue his underdog bid for the White House by the Green party’s probable presidential candidate, who has offered to step aside to let him run.

To people calling Bernie a sellout, you don't know what you are talking about. Bernie has successfully gotten many of his platform ideas implemented into Hillary's campaign. It's smart for him to endorse her now.

Bernie Sanders’s Philosophical Victory


But Sanders, despite his reputation as a left-wing purist (at least by American standards), is also a canny politician, and he never said that his recommendation would come cheap. To the fury of many Clinton supporters, he has been holding off on offering his endorsement for more than a month now, since the primary season effectively ended, on June 7th. These delaying tactics appear to have worked.

In order to win over Sanders and his supporters, the Clinton campaign has made policy concessions in a number of areas, including education, the minimum wage, and the death penalty. It would be going too far to say that the runner-up in the primaries is dictating policy; on trade, fracking, and some other issues, the Clinton campaign appears to have stood firm and rejected demands by Sanders and his supporters. But the deal that Sanders and Clinton have struck will shift the Democratic Party further away from the centrist, New Democrat philosophy that Bill Clinton campaigned on in 1992, and closer to the social democratic, or “New Deal liberal,” approach that Sanders has long promoted.

The most visible sign of this shift came last week, when Clinton said that she would make tuition free at state colleges and universities for any student whose family isn’t in the top fifteen per cent of the income distribution. Although some details of the Clinton proposal differed from the vision that Sanders laid out during the Democratic primaries, the thrust was the same. In the words of the headline that ran above a critical editorial in Monday’s Wall Street Journal, “Free College, Dude!”


Bernie knows EXACTLY what he is doing here and it is still consistent with his message and values. Though I wouldn't expect anyone from the right to understand that.

I think Sanders was going to wait a little longer to get even more input on the platform but, with 85% percent of his supporters already saying they will vote for Clinton he kind of lost his last card to play. Granted he has been saying all along he would endorse her and do anything to keep Trump out of office so this is just a formality.

Trump could learn from this and unite the GOP but, likely instead he will end up feuding with Native Americans or some other random group he is likely to say something stupid about.

That would have meant breaking his word. And his biggest goal is to protect the country against Trump. This is the best way to that.

its quite obvious that bernie endorsing hillary is just a facade. the dems do not want to lose the votes of all the people backing bernie sanders. they do not want them voting for trump. i think he was either paid off, scared into, or given a chance for VP.
he was an independant his whole life, and chose the Dems to run under, because he knew he could not compete as a 3rd party candidate.
Now instead of losing all those voters bernie brought in, they thought him endorsing HR(C) would bring those voters to the Dark side. Unfortunately, most of those voters just will not vote, either because they detest HR(C) or because they are millenials and the other guy said really mean things.

Are you just making stuff up off the top of your head or something?
Six times as many Sanders supporters would shift to Clinton over Trump – poll

Not as many as you think, I'm betting.

Why the race is still Hillary Clinton’s to lose
With this source it looks like you need all the people jumping ship you can get.

Except she isn't a criminal. No charges were filed against her.
