Bernie Sanders to Meet with Obama
Obama will meet with Sanders in Washington on Thursday, the same day the Vermont senator plans to hold a rally there. The meeting was arranged “at Senator Sanders’ request,” Earnest said, and the two will discuss “how to build on the extraordinary work he has done to engage millions of Democratic voters, and to build on that enthusiasm in the weeks and months ahead.” - Huffington Post
Bernie Sanders asked for this meeting at the White House with President Obama, the head of the Democrat Party. I don’t think this articles summation is even closely accurate as to what the meeting will be about. If you were Bernie Sanders and the Democrat Party threw every tactic at you to black ball you out of the race for President with every tool they had available, would you go to the White House with hat in hand knowing that all the polls show that Bernie Sanders beats Trump far greater than Hillary Clinton could ever dream of?
Bernie has FOUR ACES up his sleeve to discuss with the President.
The first Ace is that the polling data in head to head against Trump, Bernie Sanders would be the next President. And in order to be the next President you must have the Independent Vote which was not reflected for the most part in many states during the primary. Independent’s now out number the Democrat Party as a stand alone party and the GOP as a stand alone party. Bernie Sanders is the longest serving Independent in the congress.
The second Ace Bernie has is that you must get crossover votes from the Republican Party and Bernie Sanders has many moderate Republicans that will never vote for Hillary but will vote for Bernie over Trump. Even the GOP is running away from Trump as well as mega donors like the Koch brothers that will not be giving a dime to his campaign for President. Their political party is in free fall and Trump is losing endorsements from within his own party.
The third Ace, the campaign that Bernie Sanders has built is far larger than anyone thinks it is. He can post an email for a candidate and the people donate from all across America to support that candidate to the next congress. His coattails are longer than any president in decades if not a century. He is bringing voters back to the polls and he is a social media monster in that ability. Most of that is done by people on their own accord and not even affiliated with his campaign. When the main stream media blacked out Bernie Sanders, social media spread the words of his speeches to friends, family, neighbors, and even strangers that just happen to come across a feed from a friend of a friend liking a post on facebook.
The fourth Ace is the one that could sink both Hillary and Trump. Bernie Sanders requested the meething with President Obama to tell the head of the Democrat Party that the jig is up. A Bernie Sanders third party run is inevitable given all the dirty tricks of the Democrat Party and its leaders that were one sided from the start for Clinton. First the Data Breach scandal, where the Sanders team alerted the DNC to the breach of the firewall between the two campaigns. Then they tried to block the Sanders campaign from their own data and email lists. Then the purging of voters that mostly seemed to happen only to Sanders supporters in state after state. They broke their word, they broke the law, and they lied to Bernie over and over again. Bernie Sanders should not and will not be bound by his promise to not run as a third party candidate when the Democrat Party shoveled every dirty trick and tactic at him.
And as the last card put on the table the president will have no argument as to why Bernie Sanders should not run as a third party candidate for President.
Bernie Sanders will have my vote over Clinton or Trump in a heartbeat. He has more class and morals than those two times one thousand. And I would donate my few bucks as often as I could and every single chance that I can to make sure Bernie Sanders is the next President of the United States of America!

Bernie Fires one Shot Across the Bow
Debbie Wassermn Shultz went to far and she will be the first Political Revolution casualty. Feel the Bern Debbie!
The facts are all right there that she is rigging the DNC side of the presidential campaign for her friend Hillary. Every opportunity that she has had a say in, has screwed Bernie Sanders over. The biggest was the scheduling of a limited number of debates on dates and at times that had the least possible number of viewers.
Debbie Wasserman Shultz will not win her election and if Bernie Sanders becomes the Democrat nominee for President, she is out of a job at the DNC as well. I say that she will not win the election against Tim Canova because this is now a massive movement across the country donating to his campaign and the movement is Bernie Sanders supporters and backers.
The first shot across the bow has been fired and it is fair warning to elected leaders that happen to be Super Delegates that promised to vote for Hillary Clinton at the convention even if Bernie Sanders won their state primary or caucus. The arrogance to call your self a Democrat and vote against the will of the majority of the people in your state is a slap in the face to the voters in your district or city. The Bernie Political Revolution is about to strike and you may be the next victim. The Great Dragon has been awakened and we are not going away. Think about that for a while.
While we claim to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, we somehow lost our way for a while there. Then this guy from Vermont showed up and starting telling us that we can change this system of ours so that we are not always getting screwed. He makes sense, we like what he has for plans, we like his way of thinking, and we kind of adopted him as our kick ass Grandpa. Nobody messes with our Grandpa.
Bernie fired one shot across the bow of the DNC and we the people heard his message loud and clear. We know how to flood a campaign with cash from all across America. And if you live in the same state as a Super Delgate that refuses to change their vote, vote them out of office.
One last thought, I'd say we are going to miss Debbie Wasserman Shcultz but that would be a lie. Great health, great wealth, great distance Debbie. Bye, bye!

Election Theft is Un-American
This list goes on and on for every single state. Voter suppression and rigging the vote is real. But it only seems to effect Bernie Sanders for some odd reason? Then we have news reports that Hillary Clinton is courting GOP donors from the Jeb Bush campaign! She moved so far to the center before the primary was even over that she went to Republicans for donations? Google it, I could not make this stuff up if I wanted to. She must be so desperate for cash to finish running that she had to go to the people on the opposite political aisle begging.
As Americans we always root for the underdog, and in this case it is Senator Bernie Sanders. Bernie has never lied about his chances at winning this race, he has always said it was going to be a long up hill fight to the end. And he was right just like he was on the vote on the Iraq war. How many times are they going to keep kicking him down though? How many ways can they lie and steal and disrupt the vote for our President? A friend of mine once said that if you kick a dog hard enough and often enough they will eventually fight back and that is never a good thing for you or the dog.
Enough is enough. Bernie Sanders needs your vote America. He can only lead us if we vote for him. Don't let the election be stolen. Check your voter registration online. Print out a copy to take with you to vote. Your vote is critical and needed to stop our country from being sold to the top 1%.
As always, pleas phone bank and donate at BernieSanders.com. We need you to vote loud and clear that this election is about what is right for America and theft is never acceptable no matter where it happens

Bernie Sanders Convention Math
I am by far not a math expert but I read lots of political stories from every state on the primaries. It does not take a ton of polling data to see where the election is heading. Bernie Sanders will walk onto the convention floor with more delegates than Hillary Clinton for many reasons.
Reason #1 Western states are very liberal and at the same time look at a candidates background on honesty and trustworthiness. Bernie blows his opponent out of the water there.
Reason #2 Western states are friendlier to people that seem more genuine. Bernie blows his opponent out of the water there.
Reason #3 Western states just love Bernie and his message. His opponent just can't sell what she is offering. She can not offer an honest reason to not release her Wall Street transcripts and that does not go well with western values.
Reason #4 Bernie Sanders is consistent on his positions over his entire political career. His opponent has flipped and flopped depending on polling data.
Reason #5 Bernie Sanders is fighting for a living wage at $15 and hour, his opponent thinks that is to high and wants much less.
Reason #6 through #5026 He makes sense and is the first politician willing to just tell the truth.
On to the math. The delegates from this point are such and this does not include the bullshit super delegates that don't vote till the convention and can change their vote. This is just simple math based on online opinion and not polls for each state.
As of 5/13 Bernie Sanders has 1433 delegates and Hillary Clinton has 1716 delegates. Bernie is projected to win the last 8 of 9 states including California the mega jackpot of delegates. And if California goes big like Washington did then we have a mega blowout at the convention of delegates. If 71% vote for Bernie he will get 398 delegates.
Oregon is a very strong state for Bernie Sanders and could be well over 75% voting for him. That is 55 delegates for Bernie They vote in the next few weeks and have an open primary. Oregon will be the momentum into California that could go well over 75% or higher for Bernie Sanders. You must be registered as a Democrat or Unaffiliated to vote so check your voter registration Californians. The only remaining state that Bernie may have a problem with is New Jersey. But the tide is changing and Jersey loves a good fight for the underdog.
Bernie will win Kentucky, New Mexico, Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota by larger than life margins. He needs big wins in each state. Over 60%
Now we have to wonder if New Jersey could be an upset state? Can Bernie take the state? I think he can. The momentum is in Bernie Sanders favor and people vote the momentum. My projections are that Bernie Sanders will enter the Democrat Convention floor with 46 more delegates than his opponent. That number will flip hundreds of super delegates to his favor.

An Open Letter to Bernie Sanders
America is in a world of trouble. Our infrastructure is collapsing, our schools are in shambles, income inequality is out of control, and our political system seems to be bought and paid for by the elites of the nation. Our middle class is shrinking and the poor get even poorer. We the people need a leader that will fight for us, defend us, and lead us to better days. That would be you Bernie.
We need a leader that isn’t afraid to stand up to special interest and even shut them down. When banks and mortgage companies defraud people then we need to call them on it. When corporations deceive and poison our environment we need someone to call them on it. When corporations move our good paying jobs out of the country we need a strong leader to call them to heal. When our friends and family are going without health care we need a strong leader to right that wrong. Far too many people are dying because the cost of health care is too high.
We the people stand behind you on many issues. We are not just Democrat or Republican but also Independent voters. We are the ones driving your campaign and funding it because we believe in your message and your fight for doing what is right. All over America we are volunteering for you, talking up you message, and people are very open to what you have to say. We come to the rallies in massive numbers because you are what America is dying of thirst to hear.
We the people are behind you and will bring you a congress that will change America if you are our next president. We the people are supporting people that back you down the ticket and we will vote for them. That is the next congress. But the election and system is rigged against you. We see it, I’m sure you see it. All of your political consultants have probably told you that the system is rigged. We are not buying it.
These next couple of weeks you should do well and we hope that you will have many surprising landslides against your opponent. Unless there are some election problems like closing of polling places and blatant changing of voters registrations to keep them from voting.
We the people ask that you fight to the end. Stay in this race. The rules the DNC asked you to commit to they have already broken many times over. They are your opponents strong arm. Stick to the end. The chairwoman of the DNC will not be in the next congress.
We the people are backing the best person to lead America into the coming decade. Bringing our nation up and giving people a living wage.
When we Democrats get to the convention, and as you said it will be contested, we will fight hard for you Senator Sanders. This race for President is far from over. We can elect a leader with integrity and honesty. But, big old but, if the system is rigged and we all see it, and want to vote for you across all party lines then don’t you think that we the people should have Bernie Sanders on the ballot come next November?
We need you more now than ever Bernie. Don’t give up on us.
