Bernie V Hillary - Which Side Are You On?

By Jeff Simpson 

Last night, as we gear up for next weeks primary in New York, Bernie Sanders held a rally which drew by some estimates up to 50,000 people

In 2008, then Senator Obama drew a crowd about half this size and the New York Times called it the tipping point in the election. When Bernie draws that crowd it is barely covered.   I guess we know what the saying "Two Americas" means. 

Now lets look into what Hillary was doing at this time.  At a fund raiser in Communist Beijing, China with Goldman Sach's own Gary Gensler.  I couldnt afford the $3000/plate and plane ticket to get there but I am assuming that Mr. Gensler and Ms. Clinton did not mention the $5 Billion dollar fine that Goldman Sachs was just given for selling faulty mortgage securities to their investors.  At least it allowed the owners of sweat shops to give lots of money to Hillary to help influence American elections. 

But Wait!  There is more.   Probably the biggest difference between the two and why Bernie draws 50,000 people for free and Hillary draws a couple hundred rich folks with big checks.   

Verizon went on strike yesterday.   

Senator Sanders, in a show of solidarity, walked the picket lines with the workers who are just trying to get a fair wage for their hard work.   The 111 Billion dollar company did not get that big without the work of many hard working employees.  

The company is doing well enough that Verizon Communications Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Lowell McAdam received $18.3 million in total compensation last year, a 16 percent increase.

While Bernie was walking the picket line, we found out that Hillary was taking in hundreds of thousands of dollars from Verizon.

The Hillary Clinton campaign, meanwhile, has received tens of thousands of dollars from Verizon executives and lobbyists.
That’s not all. For a May 2013 speech, the corporation paid Clinton a whopping $225,000 honorarium, according to her tax records.
Verizon has also given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation, which investigative journalist Ken Silverstein has referred to as a “so-called charitable enterprise [that] has served as a vehicle to launder money and to enrich family friends.”
Moreover, the Clinton Foundation has partnered directly with Verizon, which is notorious for its vehement opposition to unions. The corporation is a partner in the Clinton Health Matters Initiative, and said it is “proud to partner with the Clinton Foundation.”

I did not have an extra $225000 to pay to see Hillary's speech, which is why she uses white noise machines so only paying customers can hear her.

I was however able to pay the fee to hear Bernie Sanders give his speech(it was free) to the Verizon workers. Instead of begging for the transcripts, we have actual video.


  1. Hillary Clinton is the anointed one -- it is astounding that she has branded one of the most popular policy proposals in America, Medicare-for-All as undemocratic and now something this corporate party is against.

    Obamacare was nothing but an indirect insurance company bail-out while every other financial institution was being directly bailed out by the taxpayers. The public forgets that, because of their large reserves, insurance companies are some of the biggest players in investment markets that were toxic because of financial manipulations.

    Any self-proclaimed progressive that votes for Clinton in November is demonstrating false consciousness -- our votes really do not matter and our elections are a sideshow. The 2016 democratic primaries are being stolen and no election fraud is done to benefit the fools that vote:

    When George W. Bush stole the 2000 election, his intentions were not good. We saw the most deadly attack on American soil shortly after he took office and exactly when Americans were deeply divided over the election fraud.

    Then the integrity of the Federal Government was destroyed while billions (with interest, trillions) was stolen by to the military-industrial complex with illegal wars of aggression based-on lies.

    And to finish it off, the interests behind him crashed the global economy, holding the American public hostage until we bailed them out with public money that was actually never repaid (don't trust anyone that says otherwise -- they are just using accounting gimmicks).

    Once Hillary steals this nomination, she will immediately go back to work for the industries that have paid here millions while she hijacks our democracy for their interest.

    The only question is: Will the November 2016 be stolen to place the republican sell-out into the White House or will we get the same corporatist war-mongers under the guise of the first woman president?

  2. Must read:

    Election Fraud: The 2016 Democratic Primaries

    If Clinton stood for anything that Americans wanted, they would not need to steal the primary.

  3. If Bernie is not the nominee I may skip voting for the first time in my life.

    1. Never skip voting. You dont have to vote Dem for president, but you have to vote RUSS for Senator, at the very least

  4. Shillary is such a sociopathic liar. She literally lied that 12 equaled 15 tonight.

    No one should believe a single word she says. Jimmi Hendrix had a great song about if 6 were 9, but he was a musician and an entertainer.

    Shillary Clinton lied repeatedly tonight that 12 equaled 15!

  5. Unfortunately the Democratic primary has taken a turn similar to the Republican side. Bernie has the ideas that appeal to the left of the Democratic party and Hillary has the experience and ideas that appeal to the establishment of the party. Bernie and supporters need to quit demonizing the establishment. The Democratic establishment is still better than the Rethugs. No matter which way the primary turns out, people must come together like they did around Obama to get a Democrat elected president and turn the senate back to our side.

  6. ‘Bernie and supporters need to quit demonizing the establishment.’ Aaaah...the evil of two lessors. being shot with a .38 is still better than a .357, so ya got that too.
