Yeah I know. That's what I'm asking. So there are no laws over the conduct of how this part of it is run???

They can literally just do anything like lock out delegates and cheat within this part of the process and it's perfectly legal??

I think the people making the laws...are the one breaking the laws. They leave them breakable, ambiguous and adjustable to the situation...because they can...and doing so serves their purposes.

So the rules committee chose a room with a small occupancy limit...stuffed it with Hillary supporters and locked the majority of Bernie delegates and press out...for safety reasons. Brilliant.


Forget social engineering.

Forget Geo engineering.

ELECTIONEERING!

Pathetic.

There's no reason for Bernie to endorse a criminal, especially after this parade.



And especially so, considering that the DNC e-mails that Wiki-Leaks published are proving what Donald Trump said... that the crooked DNC leadership was so "in the tank" for Hillary, they intentionally kept Bernie Sanders from coming anywhere close to winning the nomination.

Wait! The left would never, never ever do anything shady.

Who could have seen this coming?

I'm in utter disbelief. Surely somebody will start a support group or a gofundme for the victims...

BVM! Bernie Voters Matter!

Well, that sounds like a problem then.

Someone should probably fix that before the whole system becomes corrupt and unusable. Unless of course that has happened already in which case I guess all that's left to do is for all of us to completely ignore all governmental based laws and regulations, storm all governmental buildings, revolt, rebel and have total anarchy until the system has been wiped out completely.

Or we can just ignore it.

What do you think is best??

These aren't 'laws'; they are agreed-on rules of a private organization. Think of it like the NCAA where everyone agrees on a set of rules but then the NCAA can make things up [see Joe Paterno and Penn State] and if they get away with it, it is the new rule even if it is a presumption of power.

Great clarification. TY. Yes...Rules...not Laws.
Rules? Laws?...What difference,...at this point,...does it make?"
They'll break whatever...to get what they want.

Q: Whats the difference between the Trilateral commission / CFR / Bilderberg meetings and the 2016 DNC convention?

A: Nothing, in each instance, the plebs and voices of dissent are irrelevant to their agenda.

exactly! that`s the first thing i thought when i read the op, at least at the start of the republican convention they didn`t lock delegates and reporters out of a room and scheme in private, that`s sounds like something that would happen in the old communist soviet union.if we had a gulag in america i suspect that the DNC rules committee would have sent some of their delegates there.is this what we should expect from a hillary administration?

In lieu of arguing with one another why don't We show both parties that We won't take it any longer and We erect Gary Johnson? Then We give Him 4 years to 'right the ship' and IF He steps on His 'Johnson' We vote Him out??

Doesn't this make the most sense? I mean really, take Your emotions out of the equation and if You can't do that, which is fine too, at least take the 12 min. to read up on Gary Johnson and His experience in Government because he does have governmental experience and that is a "good thing". A person in Government and is an unknown is like an umpire in Baseball- If He does His job correctly and isn't a "showboat" then You don't hear about them to learn their name.

The excuse "A vote for Johnson is a vote for...?" which of the other 2 crooks You weren't going to vote for doesn't work. This is restricting Yourself to the 2-Party Paradigm.

Or We can continue to circle the drain by doing the same ol same ol.. Wasn't it that real smart guy Alfred Epstein that said "Doing the exact same thing over and over looking for different results is the definition of insanity"?
Then the first 8 months the losing party moans about the results.

if bernie doesn`t retract his support of hillary after finding out his own party conspired to lock him out of the nomination than he isn`t the type of person that should be president.He`ll let people screw him over and then say thank you.

i agree, the latest revealations prove what a lot of people have suspected, both parties are corrupt beyond redemption and they both answer to the same master.

This news just happened:

Democrats vote to overhaul superdelegate system



The Democratic Rules Committee voted overwhelmingly in favor of a major shift in the superdelegate system Saturday night after a deal was reached between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters.

The committee approved nearly unanimously an amendment that preserves the existing superdelegate role for elected U.S. lawmakers and governors, but will bind the remaining superdelegates — roughly two-thirds — to primary and caucus results.

The new rule, which will still need to be formally approved by the DNC and won’t be in effect until the next presidential election, establishes a “Unity Commission” to make recommendations on the reforms.

I'd really like to know if the proposed amendment to eliminate the superdelegates will still get a floor vote or if this watered-down proposal the committee agreed on is it.

I don't see why those that earned enough Committee votes for a floor vote to eliminate the superdelegates should have their proposal dropped just because the committee agreed on another compromise.

No, it does not.

Bernie would have to pull hundreds of supers from Hillary and that is not going to happen. Hillary FTW.

I think Hillary as the nominee is Trump's only shot at winning though so there's that!

Well let's see... Hillary's polls are neck and neck with the Blatting Yams'. The announcement of her running mate was met with collective yawns. She's blowing a reported half a million a week (or was it a day?) on anti-Yam commercials and it's not making a dent in the polls. Both of them are the most hated mistrusted candidates in the history of everyone since Mussolini. Oh, and let's not forget, Wikileaks just dumped a nice juicy turd (can I say that?) in the collective lap of the Convention, with several ongoing serious lawsuits about vote counting fraud, voter suppression and their quite obvious campaign against Bernie.

I'd say that the DNC may be panicking. A LOT.
