I was talking to a friend in California who is working with the Bernie campaign. He says the polls are ridiculous and that Trump doesn't stand a chance.

Maybe not in California, because California will back the Democrats no matter what and is not a factor in Presidential elections. He does stand a chance in swing states (particularly the big ones of Pennsylvania, Florida, and Ohio) because he is popular with a segment of the electorate, and Clinton is not. How many times was Trump's campaign supposed to have flamed out by now only for him to be still standing?

And let's have a fair standard here: if people are scared of things like wars and Predsidents bowing down to Wall Street, why when you look at her record is Hillary Clinton even an acceptable candidate for that office? Put aside who she's running against.

This is the problem with Democrats and the left in the US. If Trump wins the Presidency, people will be organizing to stop Trump's frightening policies the second he is declared elected. Clinton, however, can carry out those exact same identical policies and then it's all about stopping the Republicans from doing the scary things the Democrats do.

According to my friend, both the Hillary and Bernie campaigns have registered more voters than the Republicans. These voters are not being counted in the polls because they have a bad history of voting in the past. Young people, women, and people of colour are very motivated to stop Trump, and they are now coming out to register to vote. Add to this the natural advantage the Democrats have demographically in the electoral college count, and any Republican candidate would have difficulty winning.

The corporate media has been in the tank for Wall Street's preferred candidate for as long as she was running..AP announced that Clinton had won yesterday BEFORE the primaries being run today (Ya' think they're in the tank??)...They're counting the super delegates along with the pledged delegates and it's obviously disingenuous...The Democratic convention in July will be a contested convention...

Perfect End to Democratic Primary: Anonymous Superdelegates Declare Winner Through Media  -  by Glenn Greenwald

http://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/37308-focus-perfect-end-t...

"This is the perfect symbolic ending to the Democratic Party primary: The nomination is consecrated by a media organization, on a day when nobody voted, based on secret discussions with anonymous establishment insiders and donors whose identities the media organization - incredibly conceals..."

Quite sensibly, less and less voters bother with the disgusting fixed game.

Louisviile helps Clinton but Orlando helps Trump.  Seems to me that, even without Bill's speech., M. Ali's funeral helps the Democrats.  But a Muslim killing 49 in Orlando could help Trump.  Didn't anyone have a gun to shoot this guy?  Ali was a "good" Muslim but the killer a really "bad" one.

Apparently, the Orlando shooting happened in a gun free zone.

Although I'm loathe to look at such a tragedy from a political angle, I'd guess that this will also play in Trump's favour. He can attack not only Islam but also gun control.

Huh? The guy was able to purchase an AR 15 even though he was on an FBI watch list. And Florida has loose gun laws. It was not a failure of gun control, but a failure to have gun control laws.

Maybe that kind of reasoning is what stands for meaningful dialogue in the USA, but come on now, this is Canada and I could not agree more with josh.

Americans it appears, murder more of of their fellow citizens than any other country I am aware of, for one reason only - the power of the NRA to block any meaningful gun control legislation in the USA

Much as speculating about the effect on an eledction of this hate crime makes me sick to my stomach:

There was an off-duty police officer with a gun presentas security; he failed to take down the murderer. This fact will of course have no effect on the hatemongers who dominate the Republican party.

NEWS FLASH!: With Five Million Votes Still Uncounted and/or Unreported in the Democratic Primary, Sanders Could Still Win California! June 11, 2016 - 7:45pm — lindorff Demand that results be reported as the ballots are counted by:  Dave Lindorff

 

FLASH! The Los Angeles Times, actually a Hillary Clinton backer, reports that not just under 3.5 million votes, as reported on election night, but 8.5 million votes were actually cast in the California Democratic primary -- a turnout of 47%. According to the LA Times article, the Secretary of State of California, Alex Padilla, concedes that 2.5 million of those votes, mostly mail-in ballots from young people and hispanic voters, or Bernie's strongpoint, have been counted, and another 2 million have yet to be counted by local county officials.

WikiLeaks Issues 'Torrent Insurance' Encrypted File With Dead-Man's Switch

Quote:
The upcoming document dump from WikiLeaks, as Snowden has theorized, could be an extremely big story, and not just pertaining to the upcoming presidential election. As in previous years, it could reveal government secrets, connections between government donations and policies, or conspiracies to overthrow governments.
....

Clinton has consistently denied that she did anything wrong pertaining to her email server. And more recently, has ignored the Guccifer 2.0 DNC hack. If, however, the WikiLeaks file dump contains incriminating evidence of government wrongdoing while she was Secretary of State, or if the files contain evidence of a rigged Democratic primary race, it could cast a dark shadow on her quest for the White House.

http://www.inquisitr.com/3220132/wikileaks-issues-torrent-insurance-encr...

If the news comes out soon and is bad enough, most delegates could switch, to Bernie or even Biden, either of which could beat Trump and would be better than the bloodthirsty hawk.

Quote:
The pre-release “torrent insurance” is currently encrypted and unreadable, but the file WikiLeaks issued evidently comes with what is called a dead-man’s switch. What this means is, if the U.S. federal government attempts to stop the data dump, the torrent insurance file has a key that is automatically activated under the right circumstances. Therefore, if the data dump does not occur on schedule, everyone who had downloaded the torrent insurance file would be automatically issued a key to unlock the file.

Um, OK, but why not just release it?  Doesn't information want to be free any more?  What's with "I've got a secret"?
