Remember, having a 1% and a 2% extremely rich and power controlling a 99% living, working, eating, being schooled on global corporate campuses for $3-6 a day or for professionals $20-30 a day IS NOT SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM---it is slavery.
We have spent 10 years educating as to how Clinton/Obama were simply a 3rd George Bush right wing term pretending to be installing policies like $15 an hour or protecting Medicare while imploding the nation with subprimed US Treasury and state municipal bond debt. Everyone should understand Medicare and Medicaid was killed during the Affordable Care Act and subpriming the US Treasury while Congressional pols PRETENDED to be fighting each other over whether to fund or privatize our public health programs or not.
WE ALREADY KNOW MEDICARE WAS GUTTED BY OBAMA----WE KNOW MEDICARE HAS BEEN JUNK BONDED WITH US TREASURY DEBT PUSHED BY OBAMA/CLINTON WALL STREET GLOBAL CORPORATE NEO-LIBERAL POLS and Wall Street Development Corporation 'labor and justice' organizations.
So, here is what we will see and hear in all national, local media and running through social media-----the Republicans are going to kill Medicare. They are right because Obama is a far-right wing Wall Street neo-liberal. Media will try as hard as they can to give cover to the progressive posing OBAMA/CLINTON NEO-LIBERALS.
WE THE PEOPLE KNOW IF A PERSON, MEDIA OUTLET STARTS TO BLAME REPUBLICANS AND NOT WALL STREET CLINTON/OBAMA
----don't listen to those people or outlets---educate as to how they are FLIP-FLOPPING TAG TEAMING to fool WE THE PEOPLE. Especially educate our children so we don't keep having this happen over and over and over.
Obama and Clinton neo-liberals all but installed the Ryan plan these several years while progressive posing groups sold the idea Obama was trying to save Medicare and Medicaid. This coming economic crash will give reason to totally defund these health care programs.
The Republican Healthcare Plan: Gut Medicare and Blame Obama
By Charles P. Pierce
Nov 11, 2016
My Walk To Work, November 11, 2016: Part Two.
Every few days, when I walk to the BlogCave, I stop at a local McDonald's for one of their Triglyceride Festival breakfasts. Every time I've done this, there has been a table full of elderly gents sitting at the same table by the side door. (Yeah, elderly. They're older than me.) All of them wear baseball caps. One of them always wears a cap that marks him as a "Vietnam Veteran." Sometime last summer, I noticed that a couple of them had taken to wearing those familiar red baseball caps that told the world that the elderly gents were ready to Make American Great Again. Presumably, most of these guys, if not all of them, benefit from Medicare.
Gentlemen? May I introduce you to Paul Ryan, the zombie-eyed granny starver from the state of Wisconsin? Jonathan Chait in New York would like to explain to you all how you are about to get bamboozled into a worse life than you have right now.
"Your solution has always been to put things together, including entitlement reform," says Baier, using Republican code for privatizing Medicare. Ryan replies, "If you're going to repeal and replace Obamacare, you have to address those issues as well. … Medicare has got some serious issues because of Obamacare. So those things are part of our plan to replace Obamacare."
Yep. That's what's going to happen to your healthcare, gentlemen. And he's going to blame the black guy for it, and my money's all on you guys buying that wholesale. It is, of course, a blatant lie, because Paul Ryan is the…say it with us now…Biggest. Fake. Ever.
The Medicare trust fund has been extended 11 years as a result of the passage of Obamacare, whose cost reforms have helped bring health care inflation to historic lows. It is also untrue that repealing Obamacare requires changing traditional Medicare. But Ryan clearly believes he needs to make this claim in order to sell his plan, or probably even to convince fellow Republicans to support it.
One of the few positions on which the President-elect was marginally consistent during the campaign was that he would not touch entitlements. However, his economic plan was so stuffed with vague nonsense that I am fairly sure this is what's going to happen: Ryan will come up with some bullshit "stimulus" program that is larded with tax-cuts and other goodies, and he will offer it to the White House in exchange for his life's dream of shredding what's left of the social safety net. He will put together a big pot of offal, slap a label reading "Medicare" on it, and then peddle it to the suckers.
The guys at McDonald's will find themselves choosing between cat food and insulin and it will be Barack Obama's fault. Lovely.
This is when all Bernie supporters knew Bernie was moving back to being an insider-----as with Gore against Bush he did not fight the election fraud.
Thank Bernie but do not allow him to come back to be a left-leaning leader------we have millions of US citizens who can be those left-leaning social democratic leaders.
Is the Democratic Party dead? If you allow this stance-----if we allow two major parties to be controlled by global Wall Street far-right pols----filling the elections with fraud---we cannot build a third or fourth political party----WE MUST FIX OUR DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
Our young adults and university students must think about this----those people working to start third and fourth political parties in the midst of known election capture by Wall Street pols in both major parties ARE NOT WORKING IN THE INTEREST OF WE THE PEOPLE.
Who controls our state BOARD OF ELECTIONS? The governors who appoint these election leaders---if our governors are global Wall Street CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA -----which today almost all states are captured---we will continue to see all this election fraud.

Bernie Sanders: Where the Democrats Go From Here
By BERNIE SANDERSNOV. 11, 2016
Millions of Americans registered a protest vote on Tuesday, expressing their fierce opposition to an economic and political system that puts wealthy and corporate interests over their own. I strongly supported Hillary Clinton, campaigned hard on her behalf, and believed she was the right choice on Election Day. But Donald J. Trump won the White House because his campaign rhetoric successfully tapped into a very real and justified anger, an anger that many traditional Democrats feel.
I am saddened, but not surprised, by the outcome. It is no shock to me that millions of people who voted for Mr. Trump did so because they are sick and tired of the economic, political and media status quo.
Working families watch as politicians get campaign financial support from billionaires and corporate interests — and then ignore the needs of ordinary Americans. Over the last 30 years, too many Americans were sold out by their corporate bosses. They work longer hours for lower wages as they see decent paying jobs go to China, Mexico or some other low-wage country. They are tired of having chief executives make 300 times what they do, while 52 percent of all new income goes to the top 1 percent. Many of their once beautiful rural towns have depopulated, their downtown stores are shuttered, and their kids are leaving home because there are no jobs — all while corporations suck the wealth out of their communities and stuff them into offshore accounts.
Working Americans can’t afford decent, quality child care for their children. They can’t send their kids to college, and they have nothing in the bank as they head into retirement. In many parts of the country they can’t find affordable housing, and they find the cost of health insurance much too high. Too many families exist in despair as drugs, alcohol and suicide cut life short for a growing number of people.
President-elect Trump is right: The American people want change. But what kind of change will he be offering them? Will he have the courage to stand up to the most powerful people in this country who are responsible for the economic pain that so many working families feel, or will he turn the anger of the majority against minorities, immigrants, the poor and the helpless?
Will he have the courage to stand up to Wall Street, work to break up the “too big to fail” financial institutions and demand that big banks invest in small businesses and create jobs in rural America and inner cities? Or, will he appoint another Wall Street banker to run the Treasury Department and continue business as usual? Will he, as he promised during the campaign, really take on the pharmaceutical industry and lower the price of prescription drugs?
I am deeply distressed to hear stories of Americans being intimidated and harassed in the wake of Mr. Trump’s victory, and I hear the cries of families who are living in fear of being torn apart. We have come too far as a country in combating discrimination. We are not going back. Rest assured, there is no compromise on racism, bigotry, xenophobia and sexism. We will fight it in all its forms, whenever and wherever it re-emerges.
I will keep an open mind to see what ideas Mr. Trump offers and when and how we can work together. Having lost the nationwide popular vote, however, he would do well to heed the views of progressives. If the president-elect is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families, I’m going to present some very real opportunities for him to earn my support.
Let’s rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and create millions of well-paying jobs. Let’s raise the minimum wage to a living wage, help students afford to go to college, provide paid family and medical leave and expand Social Security. Let’s reform an economic system that enables billionaires like Mr. Trump not to pay a nickel in federal income taxes. And most important, let’s end the ability of wealthy campaign contributors to buy elections.
In the coming days, I will also provide a series of reforms to reinvigorate the Democratic Party. I believe strongly that the party must break loose from its corporate establishment ties and, once again, become a grass-roots party of working people, the elderly and the poor. We must open the doors of the party to welcome in the idealism and energy of young people and all Americans who are fighting for economic, social, racial and environmental justice. We must have the courage to take on the greed and power of Wall Street, the drug companies, the insurance companies and the fossil fuel industry.
When my presidential campaign came to an end, I pledged to my supporters that the political revolution would continue. And now, more than ever, that must happen. We are the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. When we stand together and don’t let demagogues divide us up by race, gender or national origin, there is nothing we cannot accomplish. We must go forward, not backward.
Here in Baltimore we have what everyone knows is a very, very, very, very, very global neo-conservative Johns Hopkins. When social Democrats shout against global Wall Street----extreme wealth and extreme poverty-----corporate fraud and government corruption--------growing national Homeland Security surveillance society----we all know we are talking global JOHNS HOPKINS. IT'S NO SECRET!
In the 1960-70s when we had REAL left-leaning civil rights and liberty movements our public universities were hotbeds of WE THE PEOPLE POLITICAL ACTIVISM----because back then public universities taught and espoused being a CITIZEN WITH RIGHTS. CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA have privatized and corporatized our public universities to STOP THAT POPULIST MOVEMENT. Today we have public universities teaching students how to be good workers---not citizens.
So, in the 1960-70s any left-leaning activist or candidate would NOT SPEAK AT ESTABLISHMENT/OPPRESSOR private universities. It would not happen because to bring citizens to a campus having goals AGAINST WE THE PEOPLE is counter-active to a REAL left-leaning movement. Bernie Sanders has done this twice----during the election and now after. Any person speaking at Johns Hopkins----as with the Brookings Institute-----as with Aspen Institute-----
THEY WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED PUBLIC EXPOSURE IF THEY WERE REAL LEFT-LEANING CITIZENS.
Below we see McKesson----Johns Hopkins' favorite Wall Street player 'social activist'-------McKesson is so Wall Street and global Clinton neo-liberal ------please learn how to spot players by who, what, where, they are allowed exposure.
I am not saying all students at Ivy Leagues are exempt from being left-leaning or social democratic---I'm saying that real left-leaning citizens BOYCOTT institutions like Hopkins -----it is the executive corporation and ethos at the top of these institutions we boycott.
So, SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC voters do not want assigned populist leaders telling us what our platform or agenda will be. This is what will occur these next several months---look out for these players and do not assume their TALKING POINTS.

/ Published Oct 3U.S. senator and former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will visit Johns Hopkins University next month as part of the annual Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium speaker series.
Sanders will speak on campus on Nov. 17, according to The News-Letter, JHU's campus newspaper. The event, co-hosted by JHU's student-run Foreign Affairs Symposium, will begin at 7 p.m. at JHU's Shriver Hall on the Homewood campus. It is free and open to the public.
Established in 1967, the MSE Symposium is a lecture series entirely run by Hopkins' undergraduates.

There is no bigger global Wall Street lying, cheating, and stealing player than MARTIN O'MALLEY FROM BALTIMORE ----people following my organization for years know that all problems in Baltimore are traced back to especially a SCHMOKE AND O'MALLEY. Of course Baltimore has always been race and class------but the GLOBAL ONE WORLD HUMAN CAPITAL DISTRIBUTION FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE conditions of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA have made race and class conditions soar in Baltimore and across the US. O'Malley is that Clinton era Wall Street player who stepped in to take the PEOPLE'S LEFT-LEANING DEMOCRATIC PARTY for far-right 1% Wall Street extreme wealth and extreme poverty.
National media was allowed to showcase O'Malley as a PROGRESSIVE----which he is----the rich getting progressively richer........he has his Wall Street Baltimore Development 'labor and justice' organization players helping him POSE SOCIALLY PROGRESSIVE. The last person we would want to head our DNC-----keeping it GLOBAL WALL STREET ONE WORLD---would be O'Malley. He was allowed by global Wall Street to run in this Presidential race because he as a Baltimore Mayor Rawlings-Blake PROVE OVER AND OVER their commitment to DOING ANYTHING WALL STREET TELLS THEM----this is how pols rise to national DNC. If someone is a member of national DNC ---they are SOLIDLY FAR-RIGHT 1% GLOBAL WALL STREET.
Martin O’Malley becomes another potential candidate for DNC chairman
By John Wagner November 11 at 12:17 PM
Former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley announces his presidential bid in Baltimore in May 2015. (Jim Bourg/Reuters )
Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley (D) said Friday that he is taking a “hard look” at seeking the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, becoming a third possible candidate in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the presidential race.
“Since the election, I have been approached by many Democrats who believe our party needs new leadership,” O’Malley said in a statement. “I'm taking a hard look at DNC Chair because I know how badly we need to reform our nominating process, articulate a bold progressive vision, recommit ourselves to higher wages and a stronger middle class, and return to our roots as a nationwide, grassroots party.”
O’Malley, a two-term governor with a litany of liberal accomplishments, sought the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee but dropped out after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses. He is a former chairman of the Democratic Governors' Association.
So far, former governor Howard Dean has said he’s interested in the post, which he previously held. And Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) is expected to announce on Monday that he is in the running to replace interim chairwoman Donna Brazile.
Ellison has already picked up endorsements from Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), expected to be the next minority leader in his chamber, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), who was the runner-up in the Democratic primaries.
Though O'Malley tried to position himself as a progressive during the run-up to the primaries, he also had past ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton and the more centrist Democratic Leadership Council, a think tank that praised his data-driven method of governing while mayor of Baltimore. In the 2008 presidential race, O'Malley became one of the first governors to endorse Clinton for president.
Another DNC leader we hear is KEITH ELLISON------of Minnesota----look below at whom already supports Keith-----Clinton neo-liberal loyalist Brazile-----and Wall Street's favorite Clinton neo-liberal SCHUMER. These are two of the strongest and oldest Clinton neo-liberals telling us DO NOT LISTEN TO KEITH ELLISON.
'Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) is expected to announce on Monday that he is in the running to replace interim chairwoman Donna Brazile.
Ellison has already picked up endorsements from Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), expected to be the next minority leader in his chamber, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), who was the runner-up in the Democratic primaries'.
And look----Bernie Sanders joins Schumer and Brazile in pushing Ellison----so again---we are not SHEEP----we do not need to follow endorsements from Bernie----and we watch as he partners with pols we already know to be Clinton neo-liberals! Everyone I've seen Bernie endorse---has been a Clinton neo-liberal.
Keith Ellison for DNC Chair
Join Bernie Sanders and Support Keith Ellison for DNC Chair
You cannot be a party which on one hand says we're in favor of working people, we're in favor of the needs of young people but we don't quite have the courage to take on Wall Street and the billionaire class. People do not believe that. You've got to decide which side you're on. That's why Bernie Sanders supports Rep. Keith Ellison to be the next Chair of the DNC:
"We must also do everything we can to elect Democrats in Congress in 2018, and to take back the White House in 2020. We need a Democratic National Committee led by a progressive who understands the dire need to listen to working families, not the political establishment or the billionaire class. That is why I support Keith Ellison to be the next Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and why I hope you'll join me in advocating for him to lead the DNC." - Bernie Sanders
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders announced yesterday that he too supports Ellison, who was one of only a handful of congressmen to back Sanders during his presidential primary bid. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said in an interview Thursday that she thinks Ellison would be “terrific” for the job.
We have spoken of Elizabeth Warren as a farm team Hillary----she has a long history of being anything BUT A POPULIST LEADER. Warren is from the Reddist of states-----OKLAHOMA-----she CHOSE to attend university in the REDDIST of states Texas-----
she taught at the very conservative Texas School of Law----she spent her further years at IVY LEAGUE UNIVERSITIES INCLUDING HARVARD-----she is tied to bankruptcy law always having media talk about protecting citizens---but know what? Harvard is Wall Street and they do not hire for professors populist citizens.
WE KNOW ELIZABETH WARREN IS A WALL STREET GLOBAL ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE CLINTON NEO-LIBERAL POSING SOCIALLY PROGRESSIVE.
Next we see MOVE ON---this group was created to promote Bill Clinton in the 1990s----it has always been a Clinton neo-liberal outlet posing socially progressive. So, we have lots and lots of information telling us ELLISON will be simply another CLINTON NEO-LIBERAL POSING SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE.
Elizabeth Ann Warren (née Herring; born June 22, 1949) is an American academic and politician. She is a member of the Democratic Party, and is the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts. Warren was formerly a professor of law, and taught at the University of Texas School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and most recently at Harvard Law School. A prominent scholar specializing in bankruptcy law, Warren was among the most cited in the field of commercial law before starting her political career.
'Progressive grassroots organizations such as ‘People for Bernie’ and ‘MoveOn’ have been quick to lobby for Ellison too and are circulating petitions'.
You will see Bernie and Elizabeth Warren but in front of all that is called left-leaning social progressive policies----AND WE THE PEOPLE MUST NOT ALLOW THESE 'POPULIST' LEADERS CREATE ALL OUR PUBLIC POLICY TALKING POINTS. Please push REAL PUBLIC POLICY!
Top Democrats Line up Behind Progressive Keith Ellison for Party Chair
- By MaryAlice Parks
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, slated to take over soon as the Senate's Democratic leader, is backing progressive Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison to be the new chair of the Democratic National Committee, according to Schumer’s staff.
Schumer and Ellison “spoke yesterday," Schumer spokesperson Matt House told ABC News. "Without a Democratic White House, Schumer’s view is the DNC is where grassroots organizing in sync with legislative battles should be organized.”
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders announced yesterday that he too supports Ellison, who was one of only a handful of congressmen to back Sanders during his presidential primary bid. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said in an interview Thursday that she thinks Ellison would be “terrific” for the job.
Progressive grassroots organizations such as ‘People for Bernie’ and ‘MoveOn’ have been quick to lobby for Ellison too and are circulating petitions.
If Ellison wins the post, which could be decided as early as next month, it would signal a significant shift by the party toward embracing a Sanders-style progressive agenda in the wake of a bruising election loss that has left Democrats with a massive identity crisis. In some ways, Clinton’s loss emboldened the party's left-wing members, who argue that their candidates and message excited voters more than hers and that they are more prepared to take on a Trump presidency.
Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, has not formally announced that he wants the job, but has said he will make an announcement of some kind on Monday. The congressman met with activists Thursday night about the election results and possible next steps.
“We can present a very clear alternative to the American people as to what we could have if we organize and engage,” Ellison said. “We have to use the First Amendment ... to oppose Trump and Trumpism at every turn.”
Donna Brazile has been the acting chair of the party's national committee since the Democratic National Convention in July, after Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned in the wake of emails posted by Wikileaks. Ironically, any thought that Brazile may stay on was wiped away this month, before the election, when the most recent emails posted on Wikileaks appeared to show that she too may have helped the Clinton campaign when she was active with the party committee but before she was acting chair.
Besides Ellison, other possible candidates for DNC chair include former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean who announced on Twitter that he was throwing his hat in the rang to take the job again. Dean held that post from 2005-2006, employing what he called a “50-state” strategy that attempted to put even traditionally red seats into contention, reaping tremendous success with Democrats taking control of the Congress that year.
In addition, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, a former presidential contender, said he was “taking a hard look” at the role too.
According to the emails posted on Wikileaks this month, many of Clinton’s top advisers seemed to like former Michigan Governor Jen Granholm for the job of DNC Chair. Other names floated include New Hampshire Party Chair Ray Buckley and South Carolina Party Chair Jamie Harrison.
Even beyond the attention to who will chair the party committee, both Sanders and Warren have made a point of being visible in the press and to the pubic during this week when so many other Democrats have stayed out of the spotlight.
Sanders said during an interview with CNN Thursday that he understands voters are angry about, what he calls, a decline of middle-class jobs. “But we have got to channel that anger against the people who caused the decline of the middle class and so many people living in poverty, not take it out on our neighbors, who may happen to be Muslim or Latino or women. That is demagoguery.”
Sanders’ aides says he will not rule out another run for the White House in 2020, but they acknowledge that he would be 78 then and his health may be a variable. As for now, the Vermont senator is not planning to challenge New York Sen. Chuck Schumer for the position of Senate minority leader that becomes vacant with the retirement of Nevada Sen. Harry Reid at the end of the year. But Sanders' team confirmed that he is looking for ways to take on a leadership role during this turbulent time for Democrats and progressives.
“I think he can play a big role,” Sanders’ spokesperson Michael Briggs told ABC News. “He really connects somehow with people … they are looking for leadership.”
Warren gave a stern, passionate speech to AFL-CIO union folks Thursday, where she argued that Democrats' first job in the “new era” is to stand up to Trump’s “bigotry.”
“There is no compromise here … Whether Donald Trump sits in a glass tower or sits in the White House, we will not give an inch on this, not now, not ever,” she said. ABC News' Ben Siegel contributed to this report.
There is no one more crazy for global Wall Street and being a Clinton neo-liberal than HOWARD DEAN. National media has promoted Dean as FAR-LEFT-----as a physician now rich from partnering with global health systems and PHARMA. Howard pushed Affordable Care Act because he is that doctor wanting global profit-driven, predatory, managed health care-----that will push 99% of global citizens to preventative care only while global health executives become those 2% to the 1% rich.
Here we see Dean DNC during Bush years-----this is how we went from social Democratic state and local city halls up to Reagan/Clinton-----to being almost completely far-right 1% Wall Street global corporate neo-liberal today----HOWARD DEAN FOR ONE.
EVERY ONE OF THESE POLS ARE CLINTON NEO-LIBERAL-----WE WOULD NOT WANT TO LISTEN TO ANYONE THEY SUPPORT-----
'Also rumored to be in the mix are former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison, and New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley.
Retiring Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) have also been mentioned as contenders but it's unclear whether they could win an election for chair given the strong distaste among party members to have another House member run the committee'.
It was Israel and Wasserman-Schultz as DNC campaign chairs that spent these last several years putting and funding only WALL STREET CLINTON NEO-LIBERALS IN DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES.
Howard Dean: I'm running for DNC chair
By Daniel Strauss and Brent Griffiths
11/10/16 06:25 PM EST
Updated 11/10/16 06:24 PM EST
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean said he is running for his old job atop the Democratic Party.
"The dems need organization and focus on the young," Dean tweeted Thursday. "Need a fifty State strategy and tech rehab. I am in for chairman again."
Dean served as Democratic National Committee chairman from 2005 to 2009. Donna Brazile is currently serving as interim chairwoman after Debbie Wasserman Schultz stepped down shortly before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Known for his 50-state strategy, Dean enters a possible crowded field of Democrats jockeying to lead their party after Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in the presidential election Tuesday night.
___________________________What we saw during the Democratic primary with outing the DNC for conspiring against a Bernie and pushing for a Hillary nomination filled with fraud and corruption---do anything to get Hillary in there-----this is today's Democratic National Committee. All Democratic voters KNOW our Democratic committees ---national, state, and local are CAPTURED TO FAR-RIGHT 1% WALL STREET GLOBAL CORPORATE NEO-LIBERALS----
Again, as people try to tell Democratic voters to LEAVE THE PARTY----we cannot get rid of these election frauds by doing this. WE THE PEOPLE must become that DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE---- that Baltimore City Democratic committee---that Maryland Democratic committee ---that national Democratic committee.......please take time to educate on these groups and how to participate.
There will be plenty of Democratic voters and citizens wanting to come at this change in different ways----but for those PASSIONATE LEFT-LEANING DEMOCRATS this is the way forward. We must be inside the belly of the beast to force change and to expose problems.
We know Democratic voters will not be able to fix this overnight so we must understand these players are not working for us. At election time we can know if the DNC promotes a candidate----
DON'T VOTE FOR THAT CANDIDATE----STOP RE-ELECTING THESE CROOKS.
WikiLeaks hits DNC ahead of convention, competes with Kaine VP nomination

Trouble at the DNC Monday, 25 Jul 2016 | 7:14 AM ET | 01:10
The release of more than 19,000 pages of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee competed on Saturday with the big reveal of Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine as the running mate of presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton.
On Friday, WikiLeaks dropped a bombshell cache of DNC emails. Several weeks ago, Russian hackers were reported to have breached the DNC's servers, but on Saturday WikiLeaks refused to disclose where it had obtained the trove of data.
Among other things, the documents purport to show the party apparatus favoring Clinton's campaign over the insurgency of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. On a number of occasions, high level DNC officials met with counterparts on Clinton's team to discuss ways to push back against stories that painted the Clinton campaign in a negative light.
One pointedly worded missive dismissed Sanders' campaign as "a mess" adding that his campaign apparatus "never had their act together."
The news took center stage on social media, threatening to upend the Democrats' messaging and steal attention from a chaotic and divided Republican National Convention, which wrapped up on Thursday night. The email exchanges may reopen the wounds of a bitter Democratic primary season, just as the party kicks off its own national conference designed to highlight a unified, energized party.
The DNC did not respond to CNBC's request for comment, but Sanders' campaign manager Jeff Weaver told ABC News in an interview that "someone in the DNC needs to be held at least as accountable as the Trump campaign," for a controversy involving Melania Trump's speech earlier this week, Weaver said.
Separately, CNN reported late Saturday that Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the embattled DNC chair, would be denied a speaking role at the convention in the wake of the leak.
Indeed, only half a day after Clinton announced Kaine as her vice presidential pick, news of the DNC leak was one of the top trending item on Twitter on Saturday.
GOP nominee Donald Trump leaped into the fray to blast Democrats for their perceived treatment of Sanders, calling it "really vicious."
I wanted to share this again on Ellison ---because he is the one Bernie Sanders is supporting and folks may think Ellison a good pick for left-leaning social democrats. I have watched as Ellison voted for Wall Street and much of the Clinton neo-liberal policies with national media giving him a highlighted GOOD VOTE as they do ELIZABETH WARREN. We know Pelosi, Hoyer, Van Hollen all House leaders ARE RAGING FAR-RIGHT 1 % WALL STREET GLOBAL CORPORATE NEO-LIBERALS----they are Maryland for goodness sake----home of ONE WORLD ONE GLOBAL CORPORATE RULE..... here we see Ellison as a DEPUTY TO THE WHIP-----and he was assigned to the FINANCIAL SERVICES COMMITTEE---- this means he makes the right votes for Wall Street when needed.

Here is one of those FEELING THE BERN POSERS-----Tulsi Gabbard as we see was a great big national DNC insider. Now, one does not get to the national level of DNC before years of proving you are raging far-right 1% global Wall Street so Tulsi would not have been appointed to the DNC if she was not committed. Simply jumping out of the DNC to support during a campaign does not make someone A REAL SOCIAL FEELING THE BERN DEMOCRAT. Here we see Tulsi had an executive position for goodness sake---vice chairwoman.
The next thing that tells us Gabbard is a great big CLINTON WALL STREET NEO-LIBERAL PLAYER-----is Hawaii is known for its political cronyism -------it is much like Baltimore with a political leader INOUYE. Inouye has a political machine that would not allow anything other than a global 1 %Wall Street player be installed in the national DNC. What we see often for Clinton neo-liberals posing as left-leaning social Democrats are VETERANS-----know what? Since CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA the Veteran's Administration has had appointments of people privatizing and dismantling the VA-----so there are a 5% to the 1% Veterans just as all population groups----just because Tulsi Gabbard was in the military does not make her a left-leaning social Democrat---or working for the best interests of veterans.
'All this week, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has been in a nasty back and forth with the Democratic National Committee where she serves as vice chairwoman'
TALK ABOUT CAPTURED POLITICAL MACHINES---HAWAIIANS WANT TO BREAK WITH AMERICA BECAUSE NATIVE HAWAIIANS HAVE BEEN MARGINALIZED BY GLOBAL WALL STREET POLS LIKE INOUYE.
'Sen. Daniel Inouye, the 88-year-old Democrat who has been in office since Hawaii became a state in 1959, has died'.

Gabbard made the announcement on Sunday, appearing as a panel member on the NBC show Meet the Press.
“I think it’s most important for us, as we look at our choices as to who our next commander-in-chief will be, is to recognize the necessity to have a commander in chief who has foresight, who exercises good judgment,” she said.
Sanders suffered a serious loss to Hillary Clinton in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, with only 26% to Clinton’s 74% of the vote. Afterwards, speaking from Minnesota, where he flew from Texas to concentrate on states staging Super Tuesday primaries this week, he vowed to continue to carry the battle to Clinton.
“In politics on a given night sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,” he said. “Tonight we lost. I congratulate Secretary Clinton on her very strong victory. On Tuesday over 800 delegates are at stake and we intend to win many, many of them.”
He was more downbeat during his own appearances on the Sunday talk shows, telling the same NBC show: “Well, we got decimated. It was pathetic, from our perspective. But by the way, the glimmer of positive news for our group was we won the 29 and younger.”
Gabbard, 34, an Iraq war veteran and now representative for Hawaii, became the fourth member of Congress to endorse Sanders. She elaborated on her decision, by saying it stemmed from Sanders’ cautious foreign policy.
“As a veteran and as a soldier I’ve seen first-hand the true cost of war,” she said.
“I served in a medical unit during my first deployment, where every single day I saw first hand the very high human cost of that war. I see it in my friends who now, a decade after we’ve come home, are still struggling to get out of a black hole.”
“I think it’s most important for us,” she continued, “to recognize the necessity to have a commander-in-chief who has foresight, exercises good judgment, who looks beyond the consequences, looks at the consequences of the actions they’re looking to take, before they take those actions, so we don’t continue to find ourselves in these failures that have resulted in chaos in the Middle East and so much loss of life.”
Gabbard’s words will come as a boost for Sanders, who has faced criticism from Clinton and questioning from the media over his perceived lack of foreign policy experience.
On the campaign trail and the debate stage, the senator has pointed to his vote against the Iraq war – which Clinton, then a senator for New York, supported – as evidence of his pragmatism and caution on such key foreign policy issues.
He also highlighted another, more contemporary difference of opinion with the former secretary of state on Sunday: US military intervention in Libya, which Clinton strongly supported during the revolution against dictator Muammar Gaddafi there.
“These are terrible dictators, but you’ve got to be thinking about the day after,” Sanders said on NBC. “I would’ve done it differently if I were president of the United States.”
Pressed on how he would have acted, the senator said he “would’ve worked more patiently. I know it was a difficult situation, but you can’t just go thinking about regime change.”
He agreed, however, with President Barack Obama’s decision not to try to create a no-fly zone over Syria, another proposal supported by Clinton. Obama and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff have shied from this form of intervention for fears of entanglement and “unintended consequences”.
