    Anyone who voted for her knowing what most here know voted for the lesser form of that Oligarchy. Again the DNC is corrupt, but the GOP is the very essence of that corruption. Trump didn't change anything about the GOP and they have ridden their wild horse quite successfully to further their disgusting corruption.

    Now the DNC asks caucus officials to sign confidentially agreements, preventing them from stating anything to media.
    Doesn't look fishy at all - I mean it's not russian trolls on twitter.

    @Berzerker See we don't need Russians to tell us the DNC is screwing over the progressive side of their party for the benefit of their donor class. Its right in front of our noses.

    Michael Bloomberg mysteriously wins 190% of the vote and every UN observer returns home to a solid gold mansion, Ferrari, and naked supermodel pool party.

    Speaking of which, my UN observer re-registration is due soon.

    Not only did Hillary get millions from European oligarchs, she represents the Wall St oligarchy that has spent decades shipping jobs and investments abroad and the military industrial complex and the constant wars fueling their growth. Hillary voters complaining about 'the oligarchy' are full of it.

    Did the oligarchy support or oppose overthrowing Iraq, Libya and Syria? Hell, she rigged the primaries against Bernie and then rigged the general election against Trump by sending lies to the FBI to spy on her opponent and you guys are 'woke' about threats to democracy?

    The GOP doubly supported everything you are complaining about here except they also sold their souls to oligarchs in Russia, Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan, China, and a bunch of other MidEast regimes. They have rigged everything in the fews favor here at home as well. . .

    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2...ssues-memo-could-abolish-union-rights-750000#

    Last October, Politico obtained an internal memo penned in 2017 by White House domestic policy adviser James Sherk, who urged Trump "to eliminate all job protections for federal workers and a requirement that federal contractors provide paid sick leave for employees."

    "The Trump administration has already acted on key recommendations in the memo," Politico reported. "For example, it has changed overtime pay calculations and put forth rules making it harder for companies to be held liable for labor violations committed by franchisees and contractors."

    The entire GOP is rigged for less than 1% of the US population. Its a disgusting abomination. So yea again the DNC is corrupt, but one day you may wake up out of your ignorant stupor and realize I am right when I say the GOP is the very essence of that corruption. While the DNC repeated commit bad and mean decisions, the GOP do nothing but commit bad and mean and sometimes outright evil decisions.

    I sometimes think the fundamental attribute of the current DNC is ineptitude and the RNC, corruption.

    They are both simply corrupt.

    Hopefully the results for Nevada won't take 3 days and will not be rigged.

    ...reading that kinda made me a little sick. I went to high school with James Sherk. Had to look it up to see if it was the same guy. He was a geeky little weasel. Wonder if being a social misfit back then is what turned him into the kind of sicko that'd make that type of recommendation today. I never picked on him back then but if I'd known he'd eventually turn out like this I would've been merciless lol.

    Clint Eastwood has endorsed Bloomberg and the right is disowning him

    some on the right anyway

    Bernie's leading in Nevada by a comfortable margin

    and its preferential voting, in the 2nd accounting Bernie increased his lead over Biden who increased his on the others.

    Sanders lead may be misleading, he's winning big in rural Nevada but Warren and Biden are battling for 2nd and Biden's stronghold (Vegas) isn't coming in as much yet

    I've been telling you guys for years both parties suck but all I get are lectures about false equivalencies and lesser evils. So here we have 2 candidates and a question of oligarchs. How much money did Trump get from oligarchs? How much did Hillary get? Didn't she outspend him 2 to 1 and didn't the Clinton Foundation get billions from oligarchs? Neither was the anti-oligarch candidate, that was Bernie. But the DNC, the media, the establishment - the oligarchs - wanted Hillary instead and they wanted her over Trump.

    May I remind people that this is the 2020 thread. Hillary Clinton is not running.

    She is making a lot of comments against those who are running, like Bernie. If you want to be seen as dead, die.

    Not yet, but she is interjecting herself into the election and so is Bloomberg so she's fair game. If preening Democrats who voted for her want to strut around their moral high ground like Pharisees they're gonna see their glass houses shattered.

    Maybe some rigging will allow Butti to not fall below 15% in the districts, which afaik would mean no delegates?

    Clearly a win for Biden. Bernie one of the losers, for not reaching 50%.
    Also, Berniebros are now also latino.
