      So in other words, he’s not going to support her unless she totally accepts his positions, which have been soundly rejected by the Democratic voters. I know they will be gracious to him, but really I hope they cut the ground out from under him, run a Democrat against him in Vermont, take away his one chairmanship and completely freeze him out. Then he’ll be free to start building the revolution he hasn’t tried to build in 40 years in government. I really think he ran this year because he thought it would be easier to beat a woman.

        It does NOT matter what Bernie Sanders does/says…he is just trying to stay relevant….

        for us…we must ORGANIZE…and GOTV….take back the Senate and increase our presence in the HOUSE…
        we must VOTE LOCAL….up and down the ticket…from the bottom to the top ….from the top to the bottom…this must be our mission…

          And I think he is still trying to get some press coverage
          and some donations to the ol’ campaign account. The guy does owe a ton of money, so I’ve been told by those in the know at TOD.

          That doesn’t mean we let down our guard. We must do as pf says, organize, GOTV and take back the Senate and the House. Go team!

          Exactly, Pf. Bernie’s a bitter old man who tried and lost. He isn’t wise enough to know when to call it a day, but after the final primary on Tuesday, he will be no more than a footnote in history.

          Not only did he lose, but if he puts off endorsing her much loner, all the people who could be persuaded will already have made the change and the only people left will be his diehard supporters who would never vote for her. He will lose all semblance of influence.

        I hope that it is not reported a few years from now that his senility hadn’t begun with the revolution he thought he was living while he smeared thousands of impregnable young fools into.

          I wonder about that. He seems so unable to respond to new information and situations. How many times has he given basically the same speech? He’s a broken record. I watched an interview with a reporter and Harry Reid was there. The reporter was challenging him on something and he just sat there, stumped as to how to respond. Reid had to jump in and guide the reporter away from the topic. I forget what it was, but it wasn’t that difficult a question for a man who’s been in politics most of his life to answer.

      Did someone forget to tell him that, there is no race in the Democratic party? Everyone has moved on. I know that the elderly can be stubborn sometime, but this is taking it to a whole new level.

    President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he refuses to describe the Islamic State and al Qaeda as groups fueled by “radical Islam” because the term grants them a religious legitimacy they don’t deserve.

    “They are not religious leaders; they are terrorists,” Obama said during remarks at a White House event on countering violent extremism. “We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.”

      When creepy Trump and other Republicans used “Islam” in relation to ISIS, they are consciously promoting bigotry. They want a society of internal strife where white males feel eternally aggrieved and become hate-filled and violent. That’s all the excuse they need to create an authoritarian society.

    Watching 60 minutes on Hamilton. I really, really, really wish I could have seen it before Lin Manuel Miranda left the cast. Not sure when he’s done, but I think it’s soon. Sigh.

      Ken Burns at Stanford:

      ” … For 216 years, our elections, though bitterly contested, have featured the philosophies and character of candidates who were clearly qualified. That is not the case this year. One is glaringly not qualified. So before you do anything with your well-earned degree, you must do everything you can to defeat the retrograde forces that have invaded our democratic process, divided our house, to fight against, no matter your political persuasion, the dictatorial tendencies of the candidate with zero experience in the much maligned but subtle art of governance; who is against lots of things, but doesn’t seem to be for anything, offering only bombastic and contradictory promises, and terrifying Orwellian statements; a person who easily lies, creating an environment where the truth doesn’t seem to matter; who has never demonstrated any interest in anyone or anything but himself and his own enrichment; who insults veterans, threatens a free press, mocks the handicapped, denigrates women, immigrants and all Muslims; a man who took more than a day to remember to disavow a supporter who advocates white supremacy and the Ku Klux Klan; an infantile, bullying man who, depending on his mood, is willing to discard old and established alliances, treaties and long-standing relationships … “

    I think because of all the sad news today, starting from oh-dark-thirty, this one really made me laugh out loud. I may try to remember it, if I ever get stopped by a cop in future. Goodnight, TODville. Better days are surely coming. Love you all. #LoveWins

    “… It appeared that Mr. Mateen may have contacted another Orlando club in the days leading up to the shooting.

    Micah Bass, the owner of the M Hotel and Revere, a large gay club in the area, said that someone resembling Mr. Mateen requested to add him as a friend this week on Facebook. He said he looked at the person’s picture and noticed that a lot of his friends had Arabic writing on their pages. Mr. Bass said he figured the request must have been sent in error, so he deleted it.”

    Maybe the psychopath was fighting gay feelings. Who knows what goes inside of the POS’s heads?
