Hillary Clinton has spent her entire adult life in the service of others, from The Children Defense Fund to Women’s Rights and Equal Rights Under The Law For All, while Bill Maher, Mr. Life Time Pot Smoker maneuvered his way in the comic world.

 

I have no problems with what Bill Maher does for a living, but during the 2016 Primaries Bill Maher was so far up the Backside of Bernie Sanders, a man that lied to his followers and America, in the same way Con Man Trump Duped His Supporters.

 

Sanders claimed verbally he was worth a few hundreds of thousands of dollars and drove an Old Automobile, when in fact Bernie Sanders is worth at least $15 Million Dollars and drives a $170,000.00 Automobile, according to Forbes. Bernie Sanders isn’t poor by any means. In addition Sanders promised to release his Taxes and financial information and even when he finally ended his campaign, just like Crooked Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders never released any information, except for 2 pages of incomplete information.

 

Hillary Clinton on the other hand released Bill Clinton and her Taxes dating back to 1977. Hillary Clinton life has been public and despite all of the manufactured stores by the Republicans that were carried by Bernie Sanders, Bill Maher, Jill Stein, The Media and Others, there have never been any indictments or arrests of Hillary Clinton. [Why don’t we hear about Benghazi or Emails anymore?]

 

Bill Maher, during his March 31, 2017 Friday night show literally ripped into Hillary Clinton whereby, Bill Maher claimed Hillary was out of touch and that was the reason she lost the Presidency. Well, too much Pot can do that to people Bill Maher, but neither you nor Bernie Sanders or anyone for that matter; can walk in Hillary Clinton’s Shoes and Hillary Clinton didn’t lose the Election, The Presidency was stolen from her by Fraudulent Republicans, Trump’s Treason with Vladimir Putin and Russia and pathetic morons like you Bill Maher.

Hillary Clinton Is Amply Qualified To Be President. Be Part Of History And Vote Hillary Clinton The First Female President!

[WAPO] “WITH THE presidential campaign entering its final days, you have likely heard the latest theory gaining currency among political pundits: If the election is about Hillary Clinton, and not Donald Trump, she is sure to lose.

 

We have written a lot in recent months about why Mr. Trump is manifestly unqualified — by experience, temperament and outlook — for the Oval Office. We agree that attention paid to his unfitness is to Ms. Clinton’s benefit. But we also believe that fair examination of Ms. Clinton in her own right provides convincing evidence that she is well prepared and fully capable to succeed as president of the United States.

 

 

When we endorsed Ms. Clinton, we stressed we were not choosing between the lesser of two evils. “Hillary Clinton,” we wrote, “has the potential to be an excellent president. . . . Anyone who votes for her will be able to look back, four years from now, with pride in that decision.” Not only has Ms. Clinton sketched out a thoughtful and ambitious policy agenda but she has run an impressive campaign, including her choice of running mate and her nimble mastery of three debates.

 

We are not alone in our recommendation. Most newspapers — including conservative newspapers that never before supported a Democrat for president — have endorsed Ms. Clinton, as have publications that broke decades-long traditions of not choosing sides. She has been backed by an impressive number of officials, former officials and experts from both sides of the aisle, including cabinet secretaries, retired military and Nobel Prize winners. Tellingly, people who worked most closely with her are most enthusiastic. “Prepared, detail-oriented, thoughtful, inquisitive and willing to change her mind if presented with a compelling argument,” was the testimonial offered by Michael J. Morell, 33-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency, who has served presidents of both parties and never publicly backed a presidential candidate before. “I never saw her bring politics into the Situation Room.”

 

These capabilities — President Obama has said there has never been anyone more qualified than Ms. Clinton to serve as president — must not be obscured in the sideshow whipped up by her opponents and unfortunately enabled by FBI Director James B. Comey’s ill-advised letter to Congress last month. There is no question that Ms. Clinton has flaws and has made mistakes in her 30 years in public life, but the caricature painted by her opponents is more slander than reality. Yes, she was wrong to use a private email server as secretary of state, but that does not constitute treason. Nor, as Mr. Comey’s Sunday letter makes clear, did it involve criminal behavior. Yes, she and her husband should have taken more care in avoiding even the appearance of conflicts with the Clinton Foundation, but that again doesn’t mean that crimes were committed or that the foundation doesn’t do worthy work.

 

It is hard to imagine that any other politician subjected to decades of unrelenting conspiracy-mongering, unprecedented scrutiny and outright misogyny would fare as well as she has. Some of the emails from her staff stolen by Russia and released show thoughtless comments and embarrassing political calculations by her staff, but many others reveal a woman with discipline and resilience who thinks thoughtfully about the important issues of the day and pushes for pragmatic solutions. Those are the qualities we hope will result in her being elected president on Nov. 8.”

President Obama Calls On Men To Reflect On Sexism Before Voting And Hillary Clinton Tells Boys To Show Respect To Girls And Women!

President Barack Obama on Tuesday called on men to “look inside” themselves and think about bias if they have any doubt about voting for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

 

“To the guys out there, I want to be honest,” Obama told a crowd in Columbus, Ohio, at a Clinton campaign event. “You know, there’s a reason we haven’t had a woman president before.”

 

He asked male voters to think about their potential biases against Clinton, who would be the first female president in U.S. history.

 

“I want every man out there who’s voting to kinda look inside yourself and ask yourself, if you’re having problems with this stuff, how much of it is that we’re just not used to it?” he said. “When a guy is ambitious and out in the public arena and working hard, well that’s okay. But when a woman suddenly does it, suddenly you’re all like, well, why’s she doing that?”

 

Obama went on to praise Clinton. “She is so much better qualified than the other guy,” he said, referring to GOP nominee Donald Trump. “She has conducted herself so much better in public life than the other guy.”

 

Obama blasted Trump for his disrespectful treatment of women and said the behavior would continue should he be elected president.

 

“The only thing this office does is it amplifies who you are. It magnifies who you are,” he said. “If you disrespected women before you were elected, you will disrespect women once you’re president.”

The Democratic National Committee Has Told The Campaign Of Senator Bernie Sanders That It Was Suspending Its Access To Its Voter Database Of Hillary Clinton’s Private Campaign Data By One Of Bernie Sanders Staffer’s.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 18, 2015 by sheriffali

CRH DEC 18 15 - SANDERS 1

The Democratic National Committee has told the campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont that it was suspending its access to its voter database after a software error enabled at least one of his staff members to review Hillary Clinton’s private campaign data.

 

The decision by the party committee is a major blow to Mr. Sanders’s campaign. The database includes information from voters across the nation and is used by campaigns to set strategy, especially in the early voting states.

CRH DEC 18 15 - SANDERS 2

The breach occurred after a software problem at the technology company NGP VAN, which gives campaigns access to the voter data. The problem inadvertently made proprietary voter data of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign visible to others, according to party committee officials.

 

The Sanders campaign said that it had fired a staff member who breached Mrs. Clinton’s data. But according to three people with direct knowledge of the breach, there were four user accounts associated with the Sanders campaign that ran searches while the security of Mrs. Clinton’s data was compromised.

 

The Washington Post first reported the issue.

 

The suspension comes as Mr. Sanders prepares to face Mrs. Clinton at the Democratic debate on Saturday, and as he received the endorsement of a major union, the Communications Workers of America, and a liberal group on Thursday.

The Democratic committee blamed NGP VAN for the software glitch.

 

“This was an isolated incident, and we’re conducting a full audit to ensure the integrity of the system and reporting the findings to the D.N.C.,” Stu Trevelyan, NGP VAN’s chief executive, said.

If Bernie Sanders won the Democratic Party nomination, the GOP would drop their campaign of manufactured lies against Hillary Clinton and immediately begin dumping Bernie Sanders’ closet full of skeletons into the daylight.

Bernie’s carefully crafted image would disintegrate in a matter of days. His baggage is real, and it’s not pretty.

BERNIE SANDERS 6

[Joshua Brennig] Bernie Sanders’ father was a high school drop-out, who tormented his family with rants about their financial problems. He blamed society and economic inequality for his plight, though as a white male in a middle class neighborhood, he was hardly among the downtrodden.

 

This was Bernie’s inspiration to take up the cause of economic justice, though he would spend half of his life as an able-bodied college graduate living off of unemployment checks, and the women in his life, between odd jobs. By his own admission, Bernie was not a great student, starting at Brooklyn College and transferring to Univ. of Chicago, but his enrollment kept him protected from the draft.

He joined socialist organizations and dabbled in far-left communist politics, gaining national notoriety by petitioning the school to let students have sex in the dormitories. This was before birth control and abortion were legal, when there were still very serious repercussions for women if the condom broke, but that didn’t stop him from crusading against those silly rules that were an obstacle to his own satisfaction. He participated in the 1963 March on Washington, a few demonstrations, and was arrested once, but his activism for civil rights ended when he became obsessed with socialism. NOT “democratic socialism”, but oppressive far-left Marxism.

BERNIE SANDERS 4

Bernie married his college sweetheart, Deborah Shilling, and spent his small inheritance on a summer home in Vermont on 85 acres. The shack had a dirt floor and no electricity, maintaining his proletariat credibility, but not impressing his new bride. He refused to get a steady job, so his wife didn’t stick around long, divorced after 18 months.

 

The Viet Nam war was escalating, and when the next draft was announced, Bernie applied for a conscientious objector deferment. His deferment was denied, so he dodged the draft by having a kid out of wedlock in 1969 with his new girlfriend, Susan Mott, even though he STILL wasn’t working, and had no way to support the child. By the time his draft number came up, he was too old to be drafted anyway. He continued to subsist on odd carpentry jobs and unemployment checks, and occasionally selling $15 articles, including the one about how women fantasize about gang rape. He still refused to get a steady job to support his child. His girlfriend left him.

 

In 1988 he married Jane Driscoll, and took a cold-war era honeymoon in communist USSR. His new wife supported Bernie financially through his many attempts to win a public office, and shared his radical leftist political views. They visited the pro-Soviet Sandinista Government in Nicaragua known for their human rights violations, support for anti-American terrorists, and the imprisonment and exile of opponents. Bernie blindly overlooked the carnage to stand with fellow socialists. They traveled to Cuba in hopes of meeting Bernie’s hero Fidel Castro, but access to him was denied.

Bernie Sanders managed not to hold a full-time job his entire life or vote in a single election, until he finally ran for Mayor of Burlington at the age of 40. After several failed elections, he finally won the office of Mayor of Burlington, VT, and eventually a Senate seat, which he has managed to keep off and on. For all of his years representing Vermont, Bernie Sanders passed a total of three bills, and two of them were for naming post offices.

 

 

He’s a draft-dodging deadbeat dad, a globe-trotting communist dilettante, and a petulant detractor of hard-working honorable Democrats. His one skill is yelling about how unfair the world is, and how everything SHOULD be. But he has no plans for how to make it happen, and no idea what goes on in the rest of the world or how to deal with problems overseas. His excuse for not having a foreign policy or national security plank on his platform: “I’ve only been campaigning for three months.” His socialist friends are bitter about what they see as a betrayal of their values by Bernie’s pursuit of the Democratic nomination.

 

His former wife and girlfriend run when they see reporters and will not speak to the press. Bernie’s past, including a brief stint living in a kibbutz in Israel is cloaked in secrecy. Former employees and coworkers describe him as hostile and belligerent. All of the Democrats in Vermont’s government have endorsed Hillary Clinton. The people who know Bernie best cannot stand him.  His supporters cannot explain how he is qualified to be president. As for his detractors, we can only watch in horror as this Nader 2.0 works an appalling act of sabotage on the Democratic Party.

Hillary Rosen To Bernie Sanders; You Shouldn’t Throw Stones On LGBT Rights [Washington Post]; Hillary Clinton’s Explanation Is What Actually Transpired And Your Version Senator Sanders, Just Isn’t True! Slate Magazine Also confirmed The Same Facts

WHITE HOUSE - 2016 HILLARY ROSEN 10 27 15

Friday October 23, 2015 on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) read my tweet aloud. Surreal but true. It started when on Friday, when Hillary Clinton was on Maddow’s show and said that President Bill Clinton was acting defensively when he signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law in 1996 in order to prevent a worse piece of legislation codifying a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage.

 

Sanders attacked Hillary on this point at the Jefferson Jackson Dinner in Iowa, saying that it wasn’t true — that DOMA was discriminatory plain and simple. So I tweeted.

 

Despite the fact that it is impossible to put the entire complicated history of the LGBT social change movement in 140 characters, Bernie Sanders seems to think that my tweet somehow validated his moral superiority to Hillary Clinton on LGBT rights.

 

Nothing could be further from the truth. First of all, it was Bill Clinton and not Hillary Clinton that signed DOMA. Bernie Sanders was in the House of Representatives and voted against the bill, but unlike his own revisionist history, he wasn’t for same-sex marriage at the time either. He should have read the rest of my tweets on the subject.

 

In the twenty years since DOMA, Hillary Clinton has not only evolved on the issue, she has become a global leader in the fight for LGBT equality. As senator from New York, she pushed to repeal the ban on gays in the military and secure employment protections for LGBT Americans. As secretary of state she extended her view of human and women’s rights with a groundbreaking speech at the United Nations in 2011 declaring that “gay rights are human rights” and made the protection of gays, lesbians and transgender people a priority in her dealings with repressive regimes around the world. Perhaps most importantly, she engaged with the community – closely – for the last 25 years. Listening, learning, sometimes disagreeing but always striving and evolving and always caring.

 

Bernie Sanders has done none of the above. Despite being from Vermont, a state with a progressive record on LGBT rights, Sanders was a follower. He supported civil unions as a solution for as long as many leading Democrats.

 

In short, Bernie Sanders may like the idea that I can prod my friends the Clintons to do better and more, but he can’t compete with how often they have listened and responded. He would do better to look for another issue with which to “ensnare” Hillary, because LGBT rights just isn’t his thing.

Democratic Debate Will Reveal Subtle Divides, if Not Wide Gaps

Posted in 2016 Presidency, Democratic Debate with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2015 by sheriffali

After watching two viscerally divisive debates among the Republican presidential contenders, Americans are about to witness a confrontation by the Democrats that will most likely center on differences of degree, not direction, and on how hard they will push a liberal agenda, not where they hope to lead the nation.

Bernie Sanders Is Already Making It More Likely For Republicans To Win The White House In 2016. The Democratic Party Is Splitting Right Down The Middle. Republicans Objective Is To Divide And Conquer!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2015 by sheriffali

Bernie Sanders is selling his supporters a lot of high hopes and dreams that don’t match reality, and once he loses the primaries, that will probably lead to many disenfranchised Democrats who now believe Hillary Clinton to be “not liberal enough” or “just another Republican” to stay home and not vote.

 

In lots of ways, far-left liberals are actually helping out the Republican Party by bashing Hillary Clinton. I have opened a Hillary Clinton Page on my Facebook Page which is under Sheriff Gerry Ali. The page was recently opened but there is a lot of activity going on in the comments. You should open the page and see.

 

These far-left liberal’s comments is self evident of just how delusional many people have become about Mrs. Clinton. They believe that if Hillary Clinton had to nominate Supreme Court Justices, her choices might be more conservative than many of her potential Republican opponents.

 

Bernie Sanders on the other hand can say and do a lot of what he’s doing now because he’s not actually trying to win. Sure, his rhetoric plays well with far-left liberals, many liberal blogs and people who care more about idealism instead of realism, but none of that is going to win in the General Presidential Election.

 

One thing is certain and that is if Bernie Sanders were the Democratic Nominee for President, he would get crushed in the General Election. Promulgating all of the far-left idealism is not realism and perhaps, just perhaps, if Democrats can see that what Republicans are doing and wake up in the very near future, we may still be able to hold on to the White House. In the final analysis, Republicans with the Crazy Train Bunch are fully cognizant they cannot beat Hillary Clinton in the General Election, so there plan is to “Divide and Conquer.”

 

Whoever wins the primaries, the Democrats as a party are going to lose, and when we fall, the rest of America will echo it along with us. I hope everyone is happy. We’ve just made it easier for the Republicans to win even though we know exactly what the country will be like under their rule. Democrats should feel ashamed right now.

 HILLARY CLINTON 2016 - SANDERS FAR-LEFT BERNIE SANDERS PIE IN THE SKY 1

 

America Needs To Keep The White House Under Democratic Control. The Economy Is Bouncing Back Strong Once Again And Republicans Are Hoping To Win In Order To Wreck America Again. Please Look At The Three Images In This Blog As It Relates To Bernie Sanders And What The Hispanic Vote Says About Mr. Sander’s Chances.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 10, 2015 by sheriffali

Even as Bernie Sanders moves up in the polls, many people are realizing that there’s a big hole in his coalition: black voters.

 

Barack Obama won a razor-thin victory over Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Democratic primaries seven years ago in large part because black voters supported Mr. Obama by a 5-to-1 margin. Without their support, he would have lost, and lost big — probably by more than 20 points in the national popular vote.

 

As a result, many have framed Mr. Sanders’s challenge in racial terms. But his challenge in getting the support of nonwhite voters is not simply a problem of race. It’s primarily a problem with moderate and less educated Democrats, regardless of race, which disproportionately affects his support among nonwhite voters. His challenge among black voters may be no greater than his challenge among ideologically and demographically similar white voters.

 

It’s not very fair to Mr. Sanders, or any liberal Democrat, to judge his support among black voters by comparing him with Mr. Obama. In 2008, there was a strong relationship between the proportion of a demographic group that self-identified as liberal and Mr. Obama’s strength against Mrs. Clinton. Mr. Obama lost all of the least liberal groups of the Democratic Party, except black voters.

 

Without Mr. Obama’s unusual strength among black voters, another challenge to Mrs. Clinton on her left would struggle to keep Mrs. Clinton from doing well enough on moderates to deny her the nomination. The easiest way to think about Mr. Sanders’s challenge is to remember Mr. Obama’s weakness among Hispanic voters in 2008. Over all, Mr. Obama lost Hispanic voters by 26 points against Mrs. Clinton — worse than his margin among white voters.

 

Mr. Obama’s weakness among Hispanic voters didn’t fit neatly into the conventional explanation of Mr. Obama’s challenges in 2008. Commentators often presumed that Mr. Obama was weak among less liberal and less educated white voters because of racism, so they undertook tortured efforts to fit Hispanic voters into the same frame, arguing that Hispanic voters wouldn’t vote for a black candidate, perhaps because of urban rivalries between blacks and Hispanics.

Why Bernie Sanders’s Momentum Is Not Built to Last! Future POTUS – Hillary Clinton!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2015 by sheriffali

Advocating an extreme Left-Wing Agenda To Extreme Left Wingers and drawing crowds doesn’t win General Elections. Bernie Sanders is a good man but he cannot win against the Koch Brothers Republican Machine. There is only ONE DEMOCRAT that can keep the White House after President Obama and that is Hillary Clinton. Before the Naysayers attack me, read the entire article, gain some perspective and hopefully, you would see the rational.

For those that do research look at George McGovern in 1972 and Walter Mondale in 1984.

 

Love her or hate her, Hillary Clinton is going to be America’s Next and First Woman President!

[NYT] Bernie Sanders is surging. He trailed Hillary Rodham Clinton by as much as 50 points in the polls a few months ago, but he has pulled within 10 points in New Hampshire, according to some surveys. He has doubled his support in Iowa over the last month. The signs of his support are palpable: Last week, about 10,000 people attended an event in Madison, Wis., and he announced that he raised $15 million in the first three months of his campaign.

 

But the Sanders surge is about to hit a wall: the rank and file of the Democratic primary electorate.

 

Senator Sanders is now doing nearly as well as Barack Obama did among liberal voters in 2008. That makes him competitive in relatively liberal contests, like the Iowa caucuses or the New Hampshire primary.

 

But Mrs. Clinton still holds a huge lead among moderate and conservative Democrats — white and nonwhite alike. Whether Mr. Sanders can close the gap among these voters will determine the seriousness of his candidacy and whether he can pick up more delegates in other primaries. There aren’t many reasons to expect he will break through, and he certainly isn’t doing it yet.

 

If he doesn’t, he will lose by a wide margin.

 

Mr. Sanders surged as he consolidated the liberal voters who represent the natural opposition to Mrs. Clinton. A socialist senator from Vermont, he was always well positioned to be the vehicle of their skepticism of Mrs. Clinton’s policies on Wall Street and foreign intervention.

 

 

But he is unlikely to beat her by a wide margin among liberal voters. Even in 2008, Mr. Obama defeated Mrs. Clinton among liberal voters by just one percentage point nationwide. He lost liberals by one point in New Hampshire, and won them by 13 points in Iowa.

 

Mr. Sanders is nearing those tallies. On average, polls in Iowa and New Hampshire over the last month show Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders tied among self-identified liberals. Last week, a Quinnipiac poll in Iowa showed him leading Mrs. Clinton among “very liberal” voters, 47 to 43 percent.

 

Mr. Sanders could hope to do even better than Mr. Obama among liberals, but realistically there are limits. Mrs. Clinton is a liberal Democrat by any measure. Her favorability ratings among “very liberal” voters remain very good; the Quinnipiac poll, for instance, put them at 88 percent favorable and 8 percent unfavorable. Her advantage among women also helps. And this is leaving aside any of the other plausible reasons — electability, experience — for preferring Mrs. Clinton.
