71% Of Dems Say Hillary Should Keep Running EVEN IF SHE’S INDICTED

Hillary too many guns

According to a new poll from Rasmussen, a majority of Democrats believe Hillary Clinton should continue running for president, even if she’s indicted over the current FBI investigation.

Take a look:

50% Say Clinton Should Keep Running Even If Indicted

Most continue to believe likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is a lawbreaker, but half of all voters also say a felony indictment shouldn’t stop her campaign for the presidency.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters think Clinton should immediately stop campaigning if she is charged with a felony in connection with her use of a private e-mail server while secretary of State. Fifty percent (50%), however, think she should continue running until a court determines her guilt or innocence.

Voters were evenly divided on this question in January, but at that time we didn’t include the name of any candidate.

Among Democratic voters, 71% believe Clinton should keep running, a view shared by only 30% of Republicans and 46% of voters not affiliated with either major party.

The poll also found this among all voters:

Sixty-five percent (65%) consider it likely that Clinton broke the law by sending and receiving e-mails containing classified information through a private e-mail server while serving as secretary of State.

Hillary’s actions are going to catch up with her sooner or later.

Hopefully, by November of this year.

Bernie Sanders Won’t Comment On Failure Of SOCIALISM IN VENEZUELA (VIDEO)

Bernie Venezuela PT

Bernie Sanders was recently interviewed on Univision and the host asked him to comment on the collapse of the economy in the socialist paradise of Venezuela. Naturally, Bernie didn’t care to discuss it.

NewsBusters reported:

Bernie Hits Bump on Univision: Speechless on Socialism’s Failures

The Democrats’ socialist candidate for President of the United States, Bernie Sanders, was seriously tripped up this week in an interview with Univision’s León Krauze.

When asked to explain the failure of socialist governments in Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil, Sanders completely clammed up, saying he has an opinion on the subject, but was unwilling to share it, as he is “focused on my campaign.”

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: I am sure that you know about this topic: various leftist governments, especially the populists, are in serious trouble in Latin America. The socialist model in Venezuela has the country near collapse. Argentina, also Brazil, how do you explain that failure?

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: You are asking me questions…

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: I am sure you’re interested in that.

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: I am very interested, but right now I’m running for President of the United States.

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: So you don’t have an opinion about the crisis in Venezuela?

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: Of course I have an opinion, but as I said, I’m focused on my campaign.

Watch the video:

Isn’t it interesting that no one in the American media has thought to ask Bernie these questions?

It’s obviously just a coincidence.

Liberal Media Ignores Bill Clinton’s Connection To ORGY ISLAND SCANDAL

Orgy Island

If Donald Trump or any other Republican was connected to a place known for orgies and sex with minors, do you think the media would ignore the story? It’d be headline news on a nightly basis.

Zero Hedge reported:

“Bill Clinton Was Here”: The Elite One-Percent’s ‘Orgy Island’ Exposed

The Elite One-Percent’s ‘Orgy Island’ Exposed

If you can name it — it has likely taken place this the lavish private island off the coast of Puerto Rico which boasts a beautifully landscaped plush luxury estate complete with its own helipad, privy only to certain members of the global elite.

Owned by Jeffery Epstein, a wealthy American financier and convicted sex offender, Little St. James Island appears to be somewhat of a gathering place and is a well desired hangout among key figureheads, actors and royalty to the likes of former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey and even Prince Andrew.

However, the people attending the lavish residence are likely do not go there to discuss “cutting edge scientific and medical research” as the Epstein VI Foundation would like you to believe, but rather go there to experience full-on sexual encounters with underage girls as young as fourteen.

That’s right, just like a scene out of the Hollywood blockbuster film Eyes Wide Shut, starring Tom Cruise, from wild parties to prostitution, orgies and even underage sex, Little St. James reportedly has it all and is seemingly a gathering point frequented by prominent jet-setters, and it is all being exposed. The cat is out of the bag so to speak…

Back in 2005 police conducted an 11-month-long undercover investigation on Jeffery Epstein and his estate after the mother of a 14-year-old girl went to police after suspecting her daughter was paid $300 for at least one sexual act on the island in which she was ordered to strip, leaving on just her panties while giving Epstein a massage.

Although police found tons of photos of young women on the island and even interviewed eyewitnesses, Epstein was hit with a mere slap on the wrist after “pleading to a single charge of prostitution.” Epstein later served 13-months of his 18-month service in jail.

In 2008 Epstein was hit again, this time with a $50 million civil suit after another victim, a woman, made a filing in a federal court claiming that she was “recruited” by Epstein to give him a “massage” but was essentially forced into having sexual intercourse with him for $200, which was payable upon completion.

Additionally it is important to point out that Bill Clinton has been mentioned by the press often over the years — and not just for his controversial relationship with Monica Lewinsky, but rather his friendship with Jeffery Epstein.

In fact, flight records indicate that ol’ Billy-boy would frequent the island paradise around the 2002 and 2005 era, while Hillary, Bill’s wife, was a Senator in New York.

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

Hillary Won’t Say How Much Cash Her Son-in-Law GOT FROM GOLDMAN SACHS (VIDEO)

Hillary hedge fund

Hillary Clinton claims to hate things like hedge funds but rarely mentions that her son-in-law runs one. She was recently asked about her son-in-law’s fund and how much it got from Goldman Sachs. Naturally, she ignored the question.

The Intercept reports:

Hillary Clinton Won’t Say How Much Goldman Sachs CEO Invested With Her Son-in-Law

WHEN HILLARY CLINTON’S son-in-law sought funding for his new hedge fund in 2011, he found financial backing from one of the biggest names on Wall Street: Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein.

The fund, called Eaglevale Partners, was founded by Chelsea Clinton’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky, and two of his partners. Blankfein not only personally invested in the fund, but allowed his association with it to be used in the fund’s marketing.

The investment did not turn out to be a savvy business decision. Earlier this month, Mezvinsky was forced to shutter one of the investment vehicles he launched under Eaglevale, called Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity, after losing 90 percent of its money betting on the Greek recovery. The flagship Eaglevale fund has also lost money, according to the New York Times.

There has been minimal reporting on the Blankfein investment in Eaglevale Partners, which is a private fund that faces few disclosure requirements. At a campaign rally in downtown San Francisco on Thursday, I attempted to ask Hillary Clinton if she knew the amount that Blankfein invested in her son-in-law’s fund.

Watch the video below:

This is something to keep in mind the next time Hillary claims she’s going to take on big business.

She’s ought to know, she’s their best customer.

Bloomberg Owned Police Chief Moving Up To County Sheriff

vlcsnap-2016-05-30-02h16m53s12Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton is stepping down in August, on the heels of several ethics scandals that have come to light. These include dismissing a staffer who revealed that the corrections department uses unnecessary force, a female deputy was harassed and “fat shamed”, and, most recently, his souped up Dodge Charger cruiser that he ordered for himself on the county dime, against policy.

Set to take over for him on an interim basis is former Portland police chief Mike Reese.

Reese has recently become a bobble head for Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety. He was at the state capitol last year testifying, twice, in favor SB941, the “universal background check” bill that eventually passed, and has been spotted getting involved with Gabby Giffords’ anti gun group, Americans For Responsible Solutions, which, coincidentally, was handled by the scandal plagued Hilltop Public Solutions, the subject of a recent story here on Progressives Today.

During Reese’s testimony in favor of SB 941 in 2015, he was unable to explain how the new law would work and how it would be enforced, as he was grilled by one of the Senators at the hearing, until committee chair, Floyd Prozanski, bailed him out.

Reese also inadvertently made the case against the background check bill by stating that criminals get their guns from licensed dealers or gun shows, both of which require background checks, or by stealing the guns.

He was even drafted by Bloomberg to star in a series of TV ads to raise awareness about the new background check law.

As Reese was making his way out from a Giffords event in Portland in February, he was asked about crime in the city going up after this new background check law had taken effect. Of course, he had no comment.

BOOM! Disney CEO Hits Back At Bernie Sanders: HOW MANY JOBS HAVE YOU CREATED? (VIDEO)

Disney Bernie

Bernie Sanders recently criticized Disney for what it pays its workers but CEO Bob Iger, who unlike Bernie has had jobs in the real world, hit back pretty hard.

Town & Country reports:

Disney’s Bob Iger Blasts Bernie Sanders on Private Facebook Post: ‘What Have You Contributed to the US Economy?’

Disney CEO Bob Iger erupted in frustration against Bernie Sanders’ attacks on Disney’s low wages and Iger’s sky-high salary, asking in a private Facebook post obtained by TheWrap: “How many jobs have you created?”

In a private Facebook message on Tuesday, Iger, a supporter of Sanders’ Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton, wrote:

“To Bernie Sanders: We created 11,000 new jobs at Disneyland in the past decade, and our company has created 18,000 in the US in the last five years. How many jobs have you created? What have you contributed to the US economy?”

On Tuesday, Sanders launched into a broadside attack on the Walt Disney Co. during an Anaheim Convention Center rally filled with 1,500 supporters.

“Anybody make a living wage working for Disney?” Sanders asked. “It’s an example of what we’re talking about when we talk about a rigged economy.”

Sanders went on to claim that “Disney pays its workers wages that are so low that many of them are forced to live in motels because they cannot afford a decent place to live.” He added, “People are asking is it right that at Disneyland you have a CEO making $46 million while they’re paying their workers starvation wages.”

Here’s a video report from FOX News:

For someone who’s never worked outside of government, Bernie sure does think he’s an expert on the private sector.

Obama White House Launches New Office For MUSLIM OUTREACH

Islam

The left is always claiming that they strongly believe in the separation of church and state. Do you think any of them will protest Obama over this? Don’t hold your breath.

The Washington Examiner reports:

White House launches Muslim outreach office

President Obama is establishing a new position to coordinate outreach to the Muslim-American community, picking a former president of the Muslim Youth of North America to run it.

“A big part of this role is making sure the national conversation about these communities is not framed through a single lens, but covers the full range of issues that Muslims and other Americans face,” Zaki Barzinji, who will work out of the White House Office of Public Engagement, told the Huffington Post.

Barzinji’s new job deprives Gov. Terry McAuliffe, D-Va., of his director of intergovernmental affairs. Barzinji previously worked on McAuliffe’s gubernatorial campaign.

“This appointment is a further extension of this Administration’s commitment to America’s tradition of religious pluralism,” Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to the White House office of public engagement, told the Huffington Post.

So these liars really think anyone believes them anymore?

Hillary Clinton Has A Serious Enthusiasm Problem

Hillary Clinton

When you watch a video of a Trump rally, the atmosphere is electric. People have waited in line to get in and they’re very excited to be there. Hillary events have none of the magic and people are beginning to notice.

This is from Yahoo News:

Clinton campaign faces a deficit of a vital commodity: enthusiasm

His rallies are like raucous circuses, interrupted by the clamor of a captivated crowd that is quick to finish his sentences. Hers seem more like sober presidential addresses, exhaustive litanies of proposals presented to well-behaved supporters.

Making matters worse, Hillary Clinton tends to arrive late, while the Donald Trump Show always begins on time.

With the US presidential election about to enter a new phase, the Democratic candidate suffers from a glaring enthusiasm deficit, threatened by Bernie Sanders in the final primaries in June and unable to contain Republican charges of ethical lapses fueled by her use of a private e-mail server as secretary of state.

The contrast could not be more striking between Clinton’s controlled appearances and the fervent chaos that surrounds the public events of the billionaire populist, who strides onto stage to the deafening beat of 2 Unlimited’s “Get Ready for This.”

“Trump! Trump!” roared thousands of his supporters recently at a convention center in Anaheim, California, before breaking into cries of “Build the wall! Build the wall!”

Hillary as a political figure is old and tired. Trump is offering something new and needed.

This isn’t something Hillary is going to be able to fake her way through.

CBS News Political Director: It’s Media’s Job To STEER AWAY FROM CLINTONS’ PAST (VIDEO)

Dickerson on Hillary

John Dickerson, the political director of CBS News, was recently interviewed by Stephen Colbert who asked if unpleasant aspects of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s past are fair game for the election.

His answer was stunning.

Via Truth Revolt:

CBS News Political Director: ‘Our Job’ to Steer Away from the Clintons’ Past

News political director John Dickerson told Stephen Colbert that part of a journalist’s job when it comes to covering Bill and Hillary Clinton is to steer conversations away from their pasts.

This stunning admission came Wednesday night in New York City in a live interview that took audience questions. A question surfaced about Bill Clinton’s past and how that could affect Hillary’s chances in the presidential election.

Colbert reiterated the question and added his own tag: “Can Bill Clinton’s past take down Hillary Clinton’s future? I will also say, add Hillary Clinton’s past in there. Can things from the ‘90s count now?”

Dickerson responded:

“Well it’s ah…so it feels like this campaign’s going to be a lot about Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton’s past and Donald Trump’s past. Elections are supposed to be about the future. And it feels like we are not, um, we’re not having that conversation. Although we’ve tried it. Actually, you know, one of our jobs is to try to take the conversation and make it about the future and people’s lives, not about adjudicating the past.”

Dickerson did say an exception could be made if that “past goes to character and temperament which is crucial because we’re not going to be there when the big decisions are made and you need people who have the character and the temperament for the job.”

The Clintons would seem to qualify for his exception, yet Dickerson said, “So, um, I don’t know.”

Watch the video:

Do you recall anyone asking this question in 2012 when Democrats and liberals in media were talking about Romney cutting another guy’s hair in high school?

The rules are always different depending on the party.

Dem State Rep. Says Declaration of Independence IS RACIST (VIDEO)

Barbara Norton

Democrat state representative Barbara Norton of Louisiana recently claimed the Declaration of Independence is racist. She even did it on the house floor. The Democratic Party must be so proud of her.

The Hayride reported:

VIDEO: Democrat State Rep Barbara Norton Attacks Declaration Of Independence On House Floor

HB 1035, a bill by Rep. Valarie Hodges that would have mandated that schoolchildren in Louisiana be taught the Declaration of Independence, sailed through the House Education Committee with a 6-2 vote. But Wednesday, when the bill reached the floor of the House, it had a different fate – amid a torrent of squabbling, Hodges returned the bill to the calendar and it’s likely finished for the session.

The Louisiana House of Representatives has 61 Republican members out of 105, and yet it was apparent no consensus for a cornerstone of basic civics in the state’s public schools was available to the bill’s supporters.
And yet, the bill did serve to provide a bit of civic education for the people of Louisiana – although perhaps not the lesson Rep. Hodges was looking for.

What we found out was something many of us knew – namely, that Rep. Barbara Norton, a Democrat from Shreveport, isn’t a fan of our founding documents – and also is a barely sentient being.

Watch the video:

Is there anything Democrats don’t think is racist?
