It's the leadership of the new! improved! 'centrist' super-party. Brought to us by The Donald, The Bern, and the reactionary opportunism of the owners of the two old 'parties'.

Will American voters eat it up? Well, if history is what we go by ... The Bern will back the Hil and her new super-party if he cannot lead it himself. The Donald, too, will cut a deal if he cannot prevail.

Hello b. I just wanted to say I am contemplating ending my avoiding politics sabbatical. Being incarcerated illegally for almost six months in 2015 did not help either. So I may extend my absence for another six months. I need to repair my financial and social life first. Carry on MOA!

Ah,just what Trump needs,the picture of the coalition.The duopoly of idiots for Zion.
This coming election is about America regaining our sovereignty from the zionists.No if ands or buts.And Trump is the only candidate able to do so.
The Zionists have their knives out,calling him the nazi,racist etc when the mirror exposes them as such.Trump knows our enemy,he must,after the venom of the MSM..
Sanders vehement call of Trump as pathological liar because he said the commiefascist idiots who disrupted his rally were bernie bots will backfire.
BS Achilles heel is his Zionism.The most racist scum in history.

jfl, at 6, yeah, the Repubs might endorse Hillary (for prez) say. Will do it unofficially under the radar if Trump is candidate in any case. Trump can’t pick Sanders as VP though why not? - “I get along with anyone”, let’s be for the ppl and make America strong! etc.

Hillary could anoint Ryan for the VP slot - all together now! we need strength!

:) ;)

really at 7, stay strong.

How I do hate to see them look happy.

Trump won't get the nomination cuz they'll prevent it, but if he does he'll have to push for paper ballots counted at each polling place. Have you seen this? Listen from 136, exposes seeming corruption in primary vote-counting.

The Clintons have long been BFFs with the Bush Crime Syndicate. Just like the bin Ladens are. The first to post here imparted the immortal words of George Carlin. Yeah, there's the club, and we proles ain't in it.

It's a laff riot if you're W and the Anointed One, clearly. Maybe they're having a good laugh at the stupidity of the US voting public. Or maybe they're schmoozing about hanging chads and the Supreme Court. Clinton might needs some of those hanging chads this year... W's just the dood to advise on how to go about it.

Look like I will be able to vote in the Democratic Party California June 7, 2016 primary as a registered No Party Preference 2016, Presidential Primary Election.

American Independent Party, Democratic Party and Libertarian Party had informed CA Secretary of State they will allow No Party Preference to vote in their primaries.

Guess what I'm gonna vote for Killary Clinton in June primary against Bernie Sanders and in November I'm gonna vote for Trump or write-in Jill Stein or Putin, regardless which Democratic nominee, Killary or Bernie.

I really dislike Democratic party and will vote any party but Democratic party. Look like I'm not the only on doing it and Trump will win in Nov.

Go Trump go... and dun let MoveOn or George Soro stop you!

Is Putin getting out because rebels how have manpads? Will Sunnis return to Syria now? Will country be divided 3 ways? Of course this is more or less what Israel wanted anyway.

Here's How The Establishment Will Steal The GOP Nomination From Trump

The political establishment in America is terrified.

Donald Trump gets closer to securing the GOP nomination with each passing month and his rivals on both sides of the aisle are in disbelief.

Worse - or “better” if you enjoy entertainment - Trump has seemingly given up any attempt to be anything other than... well... than Donald Trump. He recently offered to pay the legal fees of a supporter who punched a protester, shouted almost maniacally about “Bernie guys” at a recent rally, and frankly seems to have gone punchdrunk with his newfound political clout...........

All the same, no one - not even Trump’s staunchest supporters - really know what to expect from a Trump presidency. And virtually no Washington veterans want to find out. In fact, as we reported last week, a group of GOP and tech execs recently made stopping Trump the topic of the American Enterprise Institute's annual World Forum, a secretive affair held on Sea Island, Georgia.

And although everyone now jokes about just how unstoppable the Trump “juggernaut” has become, the establishment isn’t called “the establishment,” for......

I see Trump as the "Don't throw me in the briar patch" candidate for the global plutocrats. They own him just like everything else and he won't fight them. In fact, Trump would make Reagan look like a Hollywood lightweight. Look at how Trump makes the brainwashed swoon. And Reagan didn't have his own group of Brownshirts form around him like is happening with Trump.

The global plutocrats like egocentric dictators like Trump and it would make dismantling the US social safety net further much easier than other candidates.

Yes,there is no doubt they are working behind the scenes to stop Trump.Hopefully the American people know their enemy by now.
Over at CP,P Street gives his take on all the Southern black votes for the hell bitch.
Sanders,the old white Jewish guy from 97% white Vermont with the guff Brooklyn accent reminded them of NY?teachers,judges,cops?,and shopkeepers they had to deal with.I have no idea what NY has to do with southern black voters,other than hostility,maybe a slip,or maybe he was intimating their were no Southern versions of NY Jews?Of course there were,the carpetbaggers and their descendants,Miss Daisy.IOW anti semitism was the reason.Of course this won't be televised.
Trump is the only candidate outside of the Zionists.They hate him,look at their rags.

Wow! Pessimism squared (pessimism x pessimism)?
In Sound Byte World every keyboard warrior hopes to be The One (or more) who dreamt up the sound byte that made a difference, or inspired someone else to dream it up. The fact that it hasn't happened yet only means that it hasn't happened yet. It doesn't mean that it will never happen, or that it's time to give up.
It could happen tomorrow...

@40/42 hw... people accuse me of being a constant optimist in my every day life.. when there is nothing else to believe in, it is a good place to reside.. i can't say i live this when thinking of the present day political process which i feel has been so responsible for a complete erosion of what we had more of in the past they we have at present.. that isn't an optimistic thought either.. i guess some realism has to kick in from time to time..
