Ole Olson58,949It has come to light that Google has started funding and supporting some of the most vile right wing extremist collectives and corporate front groups in America. Join us by changing your avatar and boycotting every single Google service for one day in protest.  *On Wednesday, December 11th make a serious attempt to not use anything Google.* No Google Searches.

No Google Books. No Google Shopping. Nothing.  (Android is immune since it is Open Source).  If nothing else, just think of this as a challenge to see if you are able to spend a day on the internet without using a single Google product or service or just take the day off and enjoy the real world for a change.  _Google, many of us are your most loyal users, and we love the technical direction everything is heading by rolling all services into Google+_ but it must be understood in no uncertain terms that we vehemently disagree with your decision to start to fund proto-fascist, right wing extremist, anti-environmental, anti-worker, and anti-science shock fronts like: •ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) •American Conservative Union •Americans for Tax Reform •CATO Institute •Federalist Society •George Mason University Law School Law and Economics Center •Heritage Action •Mercatus Center •National Taxpayers Union •R Street Institute •Texas Public Policy Foundation ________________________________________________ *More information:* Don’t Be Evil?

Jason T. Wiser22,764*How do I monetize my social media activity?*  See full notes and podcast here! http://jtw.bz/CDsocial I hear this question every day. "I have a social media following but I'm not really sure how to convert my contacts into clients? What am I doing wrong?" Too often small business owners either get frustrated because everyone tells them they _have to_ be on social media. So they get started, get some followers, and get stuck either *finding potential clients* , stuck *spending too much time* on social media, or stuck trying to *get their connections to convert.* This week I'm talking with one of social media's biggest names +Christine DeGraff  who is literally *everywhere*. She has massive followings, huge communities, and great reach. Christine will share with us: How did she get started? How does she monetize her communities?  Where does she need to improve?

Let Me Tell You About the Debate "Audience" In Milwaukee

All the debates and big party events where all the candidate are together have been like this. When an event is not open to the public, and those dictating who can attend are not being transparent about who can attend, you can bet there’s some shenanigans going on. And I say that as a Democrat who is also running for office.

This has happened at all of the major Dem gatherings unfortunately. They seem to give preferential ticketing and seating to people that support Clinton to give the illusion of popular support. It's astroturfing at it's finest.

Why Hillary Clinton Spells Democratic Party Defeat

Wall Street’s and the Democratic Party’s old guard preference, Hillary Clinton has high negative ratings both nationally as well as within the party itself. She rates 51% “unfavorable” nationally as of February 7, 2016, worse than the 32% negative opinion registered in September 2011 and the 45% registered a year ago. CBS News found last October that 14% of Democratic voters declared they wouldn’t vote for her, with another 27% expressing strong “reservations” about her, and those numbers are likely to increase with her nasty attacks on Sanders.

I__n other words, her bid to seek the highest office in the land has only increased the public’s dislike for her over time. She registers particularly strong distaste among voters in key swing states, such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado, Florida, Virginia, and Iowa, thatthe Democratic ... more »

Why Hillary Clinton Spells Democratic Party Defeat

Wall Street’s and the Democratic Party’s old guard preference, Hillary Clinton has high negative ratings both nationally as well as within the party itself. She rates 51% “unfavorable” nationally as of February 7, 2016, worse than the 32% negative opinion registered in September 2011 and the 45% registered a year ago. CBS News found last October that 14% of Democratic voters declared they wouldn’t vote for her, with another 27% expressing strong “reservations” about her, and those numbers are likely to increase with her nasty attacks on Sanders.

I__n other words, her bid to seek the highest office in the land has only increased the public’s dislike for her over time. She registers particularly strong distaste among voters in key swing states, such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado, Florida, Virginia, and Iowa, that the Democratic Party has to win secure a presidential victory. The key attribute attached to her that attracts so much negative attention is her lack of “honesty” and “trustworthiness.”


I need to be very, very clear about this: we will NOT have the wave election we need around the country if we allow Clinton to win the Democratic nomination. Period. Only Bernie Sanders has the trustworthiness that comes from having a consistently honest 30 year track record as a progressive reformer that can inspire the yuuge voter turnout we need coast to coast.


Clinton's trustworthy ratings are 30-54% (independents 22-54%), while Bernie's are 43-25% (40-23% with independents) http://d25d2506sfb94s.cloudfront.net/cumulus_uploads/document/kkv0bg7tc3/econTabReport.pdf

Clinton’s 2016 Playbook Against Bernie Sanders Is a Lot Like Her 2008 Playbook Against Obama

Just about every attack that has been lobbed against Sanders thus far in the Democratic race was once hurled against Obama. The charges of blind idealism have perhaps the clearest parallels.

Must Read: Why Bernie vs Hillary Matters More Than People Think

Bernie Sanders is not merely running to attempt to implement a set of idealistic policies that a republican-controlled congress is likely to block. He is running to take the Democratic Party back from an establishment that ignores the fundamental systemic economic problems that lead to wage stagnation and economic crisis.

Bernie Sanders’ REAL DEAL is like Teddy Roosevelt's Square Deal and FDR's New Deal http://i.imgur.com/WRW3arK.png

Bernie Sanders Presses Hillary Clinton To Demand DNC Keep Ban On Lobbyist Cash

Hours after last week’s Democratic presidential debate, where candidates criticized money’s influence over politics, word leaked that the Democratic National Committee was overturningPresident Barack Obama’s ban on accepting campaign cash from lobbyists and political action committees. Now, Sen. Bernie Sanders is calling for the DNC to honor Obama’s policy and reverse its decision — and is demanding Hillary Clinton join him in that stance.

Sorry, Corporate Media: The More Americans Hear Bernie Sanders, The More They Like Him

The three major news networks gave Donald Trump 284 minutes of coverage from January 1, 2015 through November, as compared to 10 minutes for Bernie Sanders. The disparity on ABC World News Tonight was even more staggering: 81 minutes for Trump, less than 20 seconds for Sanders!

The content of coverage of Bernie Sanders’ campaign has also been telling.  Initially, of course, Senator Sanders was viewed as a nobody candidate on the very margins of American politics—until you media started to notice that huge crowds were turning out to hear his message.  From that point on, the establishment has played up Sanders’ non-electability and/or lack of “realism.”

Clinton Wall Street-Funded Super PAC Enters Democratic Primary Against Sanders

This represents the first time one of the pro-Clinton super PACs has purchased paid broadcast advertising.The super PAC previously said it would only deploy its millions for the general election against Republicans.

Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver said, “It is truly unfortunate that the largest pro-Clinton super PAC has decided to infect the democratic primary process with its haul of Wall Street cash. Democratic voters expect more. Doesn’t the Clinton campaign have the funds to run its own ads without resorting to its super PAC, which is funded by the very people Secretary Clinton has promised to take on?”

Clinton Is Sugarcoating Her Disastrous Record
It is Hillary Clinton who is not levelling with the people about the costs of maintaining the spiraling U.S. costs of drugs, hospital stays and insurance premiums that are the highest in the world. The costs include: 1) the waste of well over $1 trillion a year; 2) daily denials of coverage by the Aetnas of the corporate world; 3) about forty thousand Americans dying each year, according to a peer-reviewed Harvard Medical School study, because they cannot afford health insurance to get diagnosed and treated in time; and 4) daily agonizing negotiations over insurance company denials, exclusions and bureaucratic paperwork that drive physicians up the wall.

Clinton hasn’t explained why she was once for single-payer until she defined her “being practical” as refusing to take on big pharma, commercial hospital chains and the giant insurance companies. She is very “practical” about taking political contributions and speaking fees from Wall Street and the health care industry.

In Fact, Argue Experts, Sanders' Medicare-for-All Numbers "Do Add Up"
"It's indisputable that single-payer systems in other countries cover everyone for virtually everything, and at much lower cost than our health care system," PNHP co-founder says

Health care must be recognized as a right, not a privilege. Every man, woman and child in our country should be able to access the health care they need regardless of their income. The only long-term solution to America's health care crisis is a single-payer national health care program.

Here is a Yahoo News guide to some of the key players in Clinton’s $157 million campaign

While only 16% of Clinton's campaign money has come from small donors (and barely ANY of it in her Super PAC), over 70% of Bernie's comes from small donors, it averages $27, and he doesn't have or want a Super PAC.

Meet the lobbyists, donors and bundlers behind Hillary’s $157 million juggernaut | Yahoo 

"On the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton has repeatedly said she will stand up to big banks, drug companies and other special interests. 'Democracy can’t just be for billionaires and corporations,' she proclaims. 

But she has struggled to answer questions about her ties to Wall Street, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper Wednesday night she accepted $675,000 in speaking fees from one investment bank because 'that’s what they offered' and that financial firms are not giving her 'very much money now.' In fact, as new campaign disclosure reports filed this week reveal, Clinton has been fueled by millions from a network of well-connected Washington lobbyists, Wall Street bundlers and billionaire donors."

Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Have a Practical Plan, or Any Plan, for Universal Health Care Coverage
On Clinton's campaign website there is a discussion of the need to "expand affordable coverage" and "make progress toward universal coverage" in general terms, but no proposal on the means for doing so. There is no plan.

And even IF Clinton did have a plan to somehow grant health insurance to the 30 million Americans that don't have it now, or to reduce costs somehow, HOW would she implement it?  How could Clinton possibly get a single one of her promises through a GOP Congress that hates her with a passion and will attack and obstruct anything Clinton wants?

https://go.berniesanders.com/page/content/phonebank

Phone Banking and Canvassing are the two most effective things that you can do to help Bernie win the primary. Phone banking helps to identify supporters in state/who is not a Bernie supporter/who is Undecided. The calls are non-invasive and easy, and you can help the important primary states from anywhere!! Invite some friends (or virtual friends), order a pizza, and get some calls out there for Bernie. South Carolina and Nevada particularly need help! Get on the phone!!

Have limited minutes? We can help you use Google Voice!

Antonin Scalia was the 3rd most right wing Justice on the Supreme Court in the last century  http://newsjunkiepost.com/2010/04/12/restoring-balance-to-the-supreme-court/

While we must be respectful of the dead, even those that we vehemently disagreed with, the glowing reviews on the corporate media must be tempered by remembering who the man really was. The reason we didn't agree with Scalia was not because he was conservative, it is because his conservatism was used to justify stances that were against against the constitution. For instance:

Here Are the 7 Worst Things Antonin Scalia Has Said or Written About Homosexuality  http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/03/scalia-worst-things-said-written-about-homosexuality-court

Beyond that there was Citizens United and McCutcheon which legalized big money hijacking our democracy, anti-voting rights and affirmative action opinions that would negatively impact minorities, and a host of other pro-corporate stances that have been detrimental to the lives of working Americans. 

He wasn't evil, but he was misguided and not a very impartial member of the SCOTUS. Now the task comes to find a replacement. This is the most ultra-conservative Supreme Court in the last century, with 4 of the 5 most far right wing Justices in the last 100 years sitting on the bench today (until the passing of Scalia), and even the "swing" vote on the bench (Kennedy) is the 10th most conservative Justice, now would be a good opportunity to get an actual progressive on the bench to balance things out (someone who has more respect for the constitution and jurisprudence than Scalia ever did). The problem of course is trying to get any nominee like that through the Republican-dominated Senate. 

Brace yourselves, the far right wing Republicans will likely block any nominee this entire year, hoping to wait out Obama's presidency in the hopes that they win the presidency next year. This is going to be an issue, but if we play our cards right, we can remind Americans that the obstruction of the hyper-partisan GOP is a serious problem, and that could potentially help us win back the Senate and Presidency where we have a better shot at restoring some balance to the Supreme Court.

Corporations are moving jobs to Mexico so they can pay workers $1 an hour with no benefits and add a more money to their bottom line. Shareholders win, workers lose. Oh, and by the way those investors (who never did any actual work) will pay 15% in "capital gains" tax on their new money while workers who did the work pay income taxes of around 28%...___Watch 1,400 US workers learn their jobs are moving to Mexico

Clinton blasts Wall Street, but still draws millions in contributions

Through the end of December, donors at hedge funds, banks, insurance companies and other financial services firms had given at least $21.4 million to support Clinton’s 2016 presidential run — more than 10 percent of the $157.8 million contributed to back her bid, according to an analysis of Federal Election Commission filings by The Washington Post.

The contributions helped Clinton reach a fundraising milestone: By the end of 2015, she had brought in more money from the financial sector during her four federal campaigns than her ­husband did during his ­quarter-century political career. Nearly half of the financial­sector donations made to support Hillary Clinton’s current presidential run have come from just two wealthy financiers.

When Government ‘Saves Money’ And Gets ‘Smaller,’ We All Lose

"Big" govt: community swimming pool. "Small" govt: everyone pays for their own pool. Which costs us more? Have you heard the phrase “penny-wise and pound-foolish”? How about “a stitch in time saves nine”? Maybe “eating the seed corn?” When government “saves money,” all of these snippets of time-honored wisdom, warning of what happens to those who try to “do it on the cheap,” should come to mind.

After the Reagan tax cuts we “made government smaller” in several ways that are coming back to bite us now. One way we “saved money” by not “changing the oil” was by deferring maintenance of the country’s infrastructure – the water systems, levees, dams, roads, bridges, airports, ports, rails systems, electrical systems, and the rest of the things we all rely onto bring us safe water, get us to work, shi... more »

Photo of the crowd for the Humphrey-Mondale DFL (MN Democrats) Dinner tonight when Bernie was speaking
I'm actually a bit peeved at this event overall though. I had a special invite to get a one on one photo with Bernie, and I was ready to wait in line 1.5 hours ahead of time, but the volunteers wouldn't let me upstairs. I tried over and over, and they instructed me to go down and wait for the volunteers with the orange flags, who never came. So I went back to try again after eating, and suddenly they were overbooked and not taking any more people. That was my primary focus for this event, and gross incompetence from my fellow DFLers who were disorganized prevented me from this rare opportunity. Kind of soured the whole experience for me.

Bernie's speech was good though when he did get up and address the crowd. Much better than anyone else, except perhaps Rep. Keith Ellison (co-chair of the progressive caucus and the first Muslim in Congress). There was decent Bernie support there, but the prices were pretty steep, so the crowd was more Clinton supporters overall.

U.S. government posts $55 billion budget surplus in January. #ThanksObama

The U.S. government posted a $55 billion budget surplus in January, up from an $18 billion deficit in the same month a year ago, the Treasury Department said on Wednesday.

I wish this would finally make those Borrow and Spend, tax cuts for the rich, Starve The Beast conservative Republicans shut up, but as we've seen in Minnesota, when they're not whining about deficits they are primarily guilty of creating, they are whining that surpluses mean the rich are taxed too much.

DNC rolls back Obama ban on contributions from federal lobbyists

The decision, which may provide an advantage to Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, was viewed with disappointment Friday morning by good government activists who saw it as a step backward in the effort to limit special interest influence in Washington.

“It is a major step in the wrong direction,” said longtime reform advocate Fred Wertheimer. “And it is completely out of touch with the clear public rejection of the role of political money in Washington,” expressed during the 2016 campaign.

Hillary Clinton Praises a Guy With Lots of Blood on His Hands

In lauding Henry Kissinger, the possible Democratic presidential nominee goes far beyond her usual hawkish rhetoric. Hillary Clinton often plays the hawk card: She voted for the Iraq war, dissedPresident Barack Obama for not being tough enough on Syria, and compared Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler. This is to be expected from a politician who has angled for a certain title: the first female president of the United States. Whether her muscular views are sincerely held or not, a conventional political calculation would lead her to assume it may be difficult for many voters to elect as commander-in-chief a woman who did not project an aggressive and assertive stance on foreign policy. So her tough talk might be charitably evaluated in such a (somewhat) forgiving context. Yet what remains more puzzling and alarming is the big wetkis... more »

The tide appears to be turning against Clintons'  relationship with many African-American voters

Likening Sanders to Jesse Jackson in the 1980s, former NAACP president Benjamin Jealous has praised the Vermont senator for consistently addressing the issues Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. referred to as the "giant triplets of evil"—racism, militarism and greed. Last week, he campaigned for Sanders ahead of the South Carolina primary and announced he would endorse the Democratic candidate for president. Jealous, now a venture capitalist, was president and CEO of the NAACP from 2008-2013.

Let Me Tell You About the Debate "Audience" In Milwaukee

All the debates and big party events where all the candidate are together have been like this. When an event is not open to the public, and those dictating who can attend are not being transparent about who can attend, you can bet there’s some shenanigans going on. And I say that as a Democrat who is also running for office.

This has happened at all of the major Dem gatherings unfortunately. They seem to give preferential ticketing and seating to people that support Clinton to give the illusion of popular support. It's astroturfing at it's finest.

Here’s What Bernie Sanders Actually Did on the Front Lines of the Civil Rights Movement
Bernie became the university chairman of CORE, and he then went on to picket a restaurant chain for arresting black demonstrators who were trying to eat there. He was actually so involved in his activism that his grades suffered, and he had to relinquish his leadership position. Still, he stayed involved with CORE throughout college and was even arrested for protesting the segregation of a South Side Chicago school.

The Clinton machine is using Karl Rove tactics here by trying to attack Bernie Sanders on his strengths, in this case his decades old activism protesting against racism.

Never mind the fact that Democrats in Nevada are actually only 52% non-hispanic Euro-American.

"Count me in as somebody who will not be listening to Henry Kissinger." +Bernie Sanders 

Well said Bernie. I think this sums up the philosophy behind his foreign policy better than anything so far. It really exposes how American foreign policy has been DOMINATED by the military industrial complex and warmongering for decades, and highlights the need to change course. I really hope he can expand on this and start to call for some downscaling of our bloated military machine and closing of some of the 1000 overseas bases we have. We are not the world's policeman. We need to put the defense back into Defense.

Bernie Sanders' proposals would create 26 million new jobs, increase median wage $22,000

For an entire generation the rich have been taking nearly ALL of the new wealth being created, and instead of paying America back from where they took that wealth, they've received massive tax cuts. It's time for the poorest 90% of Americans to get a Real Deal. Only Bernie Sanders can do this, and only if we give him a Congress to work with and get involved in a movement to retake our country.

Henry Kissinger Just Turned 92. Here's Why He's Careful About Where He Travels.

It is perhaps no coincidence that Kissinger has gone to great lengths to argue that countries cannot prosecute a world leader for crimes against humanity committed in a third country.

Below are some of the most glaring examples of foreign policy decisions Kissinger made, from Vietnam to Chile,  that violated human rights.

Clinton Endorsed By CBC's Corporate-Backed Political Arm

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., who has endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, noted that the Congressional Black Caucus itself has not issued a presidential endorsement, and asserted that the CBC's separate PAC “endorsed without input from CBC membership, including me.” As documented by the Intercept and the Street, Clinton has secured wide backing from Washington-based political groups who do not permit their rank-and-file membership to vote on presidential endorsements, while Sanders has secured the backing of groups that do allow members to vote.

I hate to share something from Facebook, but everyone should go check out the comments on Shaun King's post on John Lewis' segment of the CBC PAC endorsement of Clinton yesterday. Lewis appeared to say that he met Bill and Hillary Clinton at Civil Rights events in the 60's, but in fact they never met until 1991. 

I am not commenting on this on Facebook, and suggest to my non African American friends that you tread very lightly here and keep your comments 100% respectful if you do comment, but just go check out how supportive the comments are to Bernie. It will reassure you that Bernie's message of racial justice is resonating.

If Democrats want to win big in the general election, we need to get behind Bernie Sanders ASAP
In Minnesota Clinton beats Trump by 5, Bernie wins by 16%
In the metro, Clinton beats Trump by 27, Bernie by 34%
In the Suburbs Clinton loses to Trump by 5, Bernie by 4
In Greater MN Clinton loses by 5, Bernie WINS by 15%

Bernie fares better against Republicans in all parts of the state.  http://stmedia.startribune.com/documents/Star+Tribune+Minnesota+Poll+presidential+race+Jan+2016.pdf

And this poll is not an outlier. Virtually every poll in the nation in every region, whether it's urban, suburban, or rural, Bernie does significantly better against Republicans than Clinton. Another example: Bernie beats Republicans by 10 points in early states, Clinton LOSES to them by an average of 3... more »

Rep. Keith Ellison Sets The Record STRAIGHT On CBC's FALSE Endorsement Of Hillary Clinton!
"Whoa, it turns out it really isn’t the CBC that is endorsing Hillary Clinton, but actually the CBCPAC that made the endorsement of Hillary Clinton WITHOUT the input of actual CBC members! 

...The media and the Clinton camp should not be spinning this as an endorsement of Hillary Clinton from the CBC, when it is from their PAC arm. It is a PAC that supports Hillary Clinton and should be referred to as such."
