Jason T. Wiser22,571*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*.

Universe Likely Has Many Extinct Civilizations: Study
A new paper in Astrobiology suggests there could be a way to simplify the equation, based on the observations of exoplanets that we have made since the first one was discovered in the 1990s. While the result is depressing — life was plentiful, but is likely extinct — it does have applications to help us extend our own civilization, the researchers said. The research was led by Adam Frank, a physics and astronomer professor at the University of Rochester.

DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz: If up to me, I’d exclude independents from Dem primaries

Corporate +Debbie Wasserman Schultz: the same genius that gave Democrats the 2010 and 2014 disasters is now trying to sabotage Democrats and progressives once again by shoving a candidate down our throats that has zero appeal to independents and other non-Democrats.

The more tools of the oligarchy like DWS tighten their grip, the more people will slip through their fingers.

Why we NEED Bernie: Trump leads Clinton by 2 points in new poll http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/278366-poll-trump-has-2-point-lead-over-clinton
I'm not sure why this is so hard to understand: Hillary Clinton does NOT appeal to non-Democrats. Poll after poll consistently shows that her support starts and stops with Democrats. We are going to be enormously vulnerable if we allow Clinton to become the nominee.

At best Clinton could retain the presidency, but with favorability ratings of -15% the voter turnout would be absolutely terrible, leaving the House in obstructionist GOP hands, leading to 4 more years of stagnation and stalemate. At worst we would have a repeat of 2010 and 2014 where so few people show up to vote that Republicans completely clean our clocks, leading to them having the POTUS, Congress, and appointing 2-4 extreme right wing Justices to... more »

Our leaders have gone insane. We simply cannot risk that by allowing the DNC and Democratic establishment to install Clinton as the nominee.

This chart explains why it is so important for Democrats to make sure Bernie Sanders is our nominee
The Y-axis shows left wing to right wing, and the X-axis shows the likelihood that someone will vote. In the Democratic Primary, Hillary Clinton is winning the majority of Democrats. Bernie Sanders is winning the vast majority of non-Democrats, including independents and third parties on the left.

If Clinton is nominated, most of those folks will NOT vote for her, even if Bernie begged them to. Clinton's reach starts and stops with Democrats. It will be a low voter turnout election where Republicans do well, especially in down ballot races (from Congress to Governorships to state legislatures). 

If Bernie Sanders is nominated, he will maintain all of those independents, third party voters, and irregular voters who rarely vote, AND wrap Democrats into the base. It will be... more »

Note- these projections are based on a hypothetical matchup against either Trump or Cruz. A "moderate" Republican could cut into the GOP and centrist independent support of either Democratic candidate.

Contact the super delegates in your state and ask them to support Bernie Sanders
As it comes down to a Contested Convention, we need to impress upon the SuperDelegates more than ever that they should look towards the choices of their constituents, and to the General Election in November, and see that Bernie Sanders is the strongest choice.

I had a chance to thank Rep. Collin Peterson (MN CD7) in person on Saturday for supporting Bernie. Peterson is a blue dog, and I have some serious policy disagreements with him, but he is respecting the voters by supporting Bernie.  I was going to pick a bone with Al Franken, but he never showed up.

The idea is that the people, speaking in unison through many forms of publicly available communication, should be able to impress upon their elected REPRESENTATIVES the desire of the electorate. The people can speak loudly together, and these folks represent US - our wishes, our beliefs. Let them know your opinion, it's your right as an American.

Easy call, Facebook, Twitter and auto-tweets for elected SuperDelegates. Enough of us, speaking respectfully together, should be able to show that the populus, the momentum and the power is behind Bernie Sanders. The Democratic Party would gain a monumental advantage over Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich in November by backing Bernie Sanders. Bernie destroys all Republican competition in head to head polls and the reason is simple - Bernie is the superior, more trustworthy candidate. And those Establishment Politicians too offended by the message to get onboard should know that we can choose whether to support and primary out those elected officials for others who will better represent us.

Flood the SuperDelegates - now it's time to let them know (respectfully, be polite, and only contact their publically available means communication) who gave them a job, and what our beliefs our. We WILL win a contested convention in Philadelphia - because Bernie is the stronger candidate. 

Colorado, Minnesota, Washington and Wisconsin available. More coming soon!___Contact the super delegates in your state and ask them to support Bernie Sanders

Despite Clinton’s pledges to rebuild state parties, Politico found that less than 1 percent of the $61 million raised by the Victory Fund has stayed in the state parties’ coffers.

In essence, Hillary Clinton is skirting already lax limitations on the corruption of our democracy that was unleashed by the right wing #SCOTUS  rulings of #CitizensUnited  and #McCutcheon  and is openly laundering money through the DNC back into her campaign. How can someone who does this to win the primary against a candidate that is relying on small donors and doesn't even have a #SuperPAC  be expected to enact real #CampaignFinanceReform ?

Fight back!

_______________
AS a down ballot Democrat (running for the MN State Senate http://ShawnOlson.org), I can assure you I have not received one nickel of money from Clinton's millionaire donors, but Bernie's grassroots supporters have contributed over $2,000 to my campaign (thanks everyone!). 

But even beyond the money that comes in, the best thing that can happen for down ballot Democrats is a candidate with a broad appeal like Bernie that also has high favorability ratings. Clinton would be an anchor chained to my ankle, Bernie a life raft.

Bernie Sanders Raises $26M in April and Breaks $200 million mark  https://berniesanders.com/press-release/sanders-raises-26m-april-breaks-200m-raised-campaign/
Since the Sanders campaign was launched one year ago, his supporters have revolutionized campaign fundraising and demonstrated that he can wage a competitive campaign for president without relying on Wall Street and other special interests. More than 7.4 million contributions have poured in from more than 2.4 million donors totaling $210 million. 41% of people giving to our campaign are between the ages of 18 and 39.

Remember that when Bernie launched his campaign one year ago, his goal was to raise a total of $40 million to be competitive in the primaries.

Democrats need to think about the vote of Independents
If all the primaries had been open (or at least semi-open to allow independents to vote), Bernie Sanders would be faring much, much better right now. He is usually winning the independent vote 2:1 to 5:1 over Hillary Clinton. In November, we cannot win with Democrats alone, we need to think about which candidate has the strongest appeal to them (and third party voters, eligible voters that rarely vote, and millennials). That's Bernie.

A Prominent Trump Supporter Is Calling For The Execution Of Bernie Sanders
A literal WTF over here. Roger Stone, who appears to be a classic conservative conspiracy theorist, was just revealed to have called for the execution of Bernie Sanders. Stone is evidently a “former Trump adviser” who still remains a “close ally.” And, obviously, he lives in his own little universe. What he was talking about on the InfoWars show was how, maybe, the rich and powerful will implement “martial law” to stop a Trump presidency.

This has been like a second full time job for me, one that doesn't pay in any way other than the hope that people will finally have the hope for a better future that we need to actually get this done.

Why I am supporting Bernie Sanders For President
With all due respect to Hillary supporters, I cannot enthusiastically support her bid at this time, and will be #WaitingForBernie  to announce (likely within a couple weeks). 

Sanders is the only real progressive in the race. Sanders understands that the pillaging of working Americans by corporate demons and the ruling elites is the worst it has ever been in this country, and that it takes truly bold reforms to fight back against this onslaught. Bernie Sanders has the clarity of our situation, the strength of conviction to fix our problems, and the solutions we need.

Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for President of the United States of America a week ago. If she ends up getting the parties endorsement, I will support her 100% since every single Republican who has or will potentially declare is a regressive monster who will do horrific damage to America. But until that time I support Sanders.

Hillary is pro-choice, pro-LGBT marriage equality, pro-equal pay for women, pro-education, pro-science, pro-green energy, pro-infrastructure repair, pro-immigration reform, pro-voting rights, pro-civil rights, pro-conservation, etc. However she also has uncomfortably close ties to Wall Street, corporate tyrants, and the bloated military-industrial complex. Even though conservatives to the right of Hitler will name call Hillary a "soicalst!!" like they did with Obama, the truth is that Hillary is at best a centrist, probably even leaning center-right when everything is accounted for. 

However, I will be waiting for Bernie Sanders to announce his candidacy for POTUS, and will give him my full support. Bernie Sanders is a true progressive and a strong leader. He speaks truth to power and deserves our unwavering support.

Universe Likely Has Many Extinct Civilizations: Study
A new paper in Astrobiology suggests there could be a way to simplify the equation, based on the observations of exoplanets that we have made since the first one was discovered in the 1990s. While the result is depressing — life was plentiful, but is likely extinct — it does have applications to help us extend our own civilization, the researchers said. The research was led by Adam Frank, a physics and astronomer professor at the University of Rochester.

One year ago today Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy
We were in the low single digits in the polls (at least those that even bothered to include Bernie), the corporate media barely mentioned it, and everyone thought that the establishment insider would crush him. Then he hit double digits and his ceiling was supposedly in the teens. Then he breached 20%, and they said he would peak there. Then Bernie surpassed 30%, and all the experts said that would be the absolute upper limit. Then he hit 40% and is now neck and neck with Clinton in national polls.

Bernie's numbers just keep going up, and if we had just 3 more months there is no doubt he would have a strong and stead lead. But we are running out of time. We're down by 14 late in the 4th quarter. We can have the comeback of the playoff season with your help.

Seattle raised the #minimumwage  to $15 and prices/jobs are stable
Cheap Labor Conservatives in the Republican Party have nothing to offer anymore than pure lies. They are doing everything they can to depress wages to poverty levels to make people hungry, desperate, and more susceptible to manipulation. This keeps corporate profits high that go into the pockets of the rich (who often outsource them to overseas tax shelters). Wake up and smell the robbery!  Fight back, defend yourselves, and #FightFor15

Millions of Americans are working for totally inadequate wages. We must ensure that no full-time worker lives in poverty. The current federal minimum wage is starvation pay and must become a living wage. We must increase it to $15 an hour over the next several years. https://berniesanders.com/issues/a-living-wage/

Bernie Sanders is at the forefront of the fight to make the minimum wage a living wage. Over the past 40 years, the cost of living has increased significantly while workers’ wages have stayed relatively flat, despite commensurate increases in productivity levels. Meanwhile, CEO pay is up nearly 1000 percent since 1978 — a figure that is double the stock market growth over the same period. In other words, all of the new wealth created in the last 25 years or so has gone straight to the top one percent, leaving most workers behind. http://feelthebern.org/bernie-sanders-on-minimum-wage/

The median annual income is only $27k/year, which at full time would come equal less than $14 per hour in an economy that produces on average $64 an hour per worker. This is wage theft.

Every Treasured Progressive Reform Since the Abolition of Slavery Has Been Called 'Socialism’
History blogger Matt Karp searched the Congressional record and found the very first instance that the word “socialism” was uttered in Congress. He found that the first time anyone used the phrase was when a North Carolinian congressman used it to attack opponents of slavery.

Bigger Than Bernie: The Other Progressive Challengers Taking On the Establishment
They are coalescing around a set of progressive policies familiar to anyone who has heard Sanders speak, including single-payer healthcare, free college tuition, a $15 minimum wage and breaking up the big banks. It’s hard to imagine a Democratic platform more at odds with Bill Clinton’s centrist Third Way of the 1990s.

I am a Berniecrat. I hope you consider running for office (or recruiting a good progressive) too. Time is running out to throw your hat in the ring though. Deadlines to get your party endorsement and register are rapidly approaching.

Looking for some input here. I'm a Berniecrat running for the Minnesota State Senate in a challenging rural district (R+9), and have started the process of designing my door knocking literature pieces. Supposed to focus in on 3 values, then expand a bit on each with a short sentence or two, but not sure what to write or how to write it.

The 3 main points I'm trying to communicate are:
1. Shits fucked up. The status quo is not working, and bitter ideologues in the Republican Party are using obstruction to prevent common sense solutions. Tapping into anti-establishment sentiments to get the current career politicians out. Not sure how to sum this up into a value though, but know "shits fucked up" is probably a bad idea.

3. Hope for a better future. Imagining a better tomorrow without it sounding like an unrealistic dream. Clean, green energy, protecting the water quality of our lakes and environment, investing in things that enhance the quality of life, stronger education, better healthcare, better senior care, etc.

Doesn't matter what Bernie says, many of his voters are BoB. There's this collective illusion among Clinton supporters that Bernie can just snap his fingers and get these people to vote for (and volunteer for and donate to) Hillary Clinton, but it wouldn't matter if he BEGGED them, they will not do it. Many are only involved for a real change candidate with a consistent, honest track record of fighting for bold progressive reforms. Nobody else will cut it.

This is why it's so critical to make sure Bernie Sanders actually gets the Democratic nomination. He has legions of non-Democrats on his side. Add the majority of Dems to that and we are set for an epic wave election. A Clinton v. Trump matchup would be a low turnout election where Republicans usually do very well. 

"Let me be very clear, Democrats will not retain the White House, will not regain the Senate, will not gain the House and will not be successful in dozens of governor’s races unless we run a campaign which generates excitement and momentum and which produces a huge voter turnout." -Bernie Sanders

To All Bernie Sanders Supporters....

There is a OPEN SECRET about the Sanders Campaign YOU SHOULD KNOW.

And Yes.... ITS GOOD NEWS.


Some Sanders supporters have responded to last Tuesday's primary results with the commitment and courage of Revolutionaries. In short, they have unequivocally said they remain the MASTERS OF THEIR POLITICAL FATES AND THE CAPTAINS OF THEIR PROGRESSIVE SOULS...

Other Sanders supporters are expressing understandable disappointment and disheartening doubt as to the future of this Revolution. With both I wish to share something about Sen Sanders campaign that apparently very few knew or surmised to the point it became an OPEN SECRET..

From the very beginning OBTAINING THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION BY WINNING THE REQUIRED NUMBER OF PLEDGED / SUPERDELEGATES WAS ALWAYS PLAN "B" NEVER PLAN "A"..

Sen Sanders may be a fringe idealist from Vermont but once you read about this open secret hopefully you will appreciate his over thirty years in politics has made him a pragmatic political realist and strategist. Something Hillary Clinton, the DNC and mass media never gave him any credit in being.

Lets review the facts supporting my perhaps surprising claims...

We now stand in the midst of the greatest populist political movement in American history.

This Revolution now constitutes a yet unnamed THIRD NATIONAL POLITICAL PARTY of the American people which has proven its power and legitimacy in two very important and strategically crucial ways; votes and money

By participating as a Democratic candidate Sen Sanders boldly and honestly established a national platform based on economic inclusion, active popular sovereignty, justice and freedom which has secured the support of 9 million REGISTERED DEMOCRATIC VOTERS approximately 42.5% of ALL votes cast to date in the Democratic Primary.

The chart below is a longitudinal poll of party affiliation of the American people. Please note that as of 2014 the Americans identifying as Democrats constitute 30%, Republicans 26% and Independents 43%. Also please note in addition to the percentages, the relative trends of each voter group.

Given the majority of the large states in the Democratic primary have been CLOSED like the most recent ones means over 40% of the American INDEPENDENT electorate hasn't participated. Sen Sanders has been drawing the majority of independent voters to his message and campaign between 70% - 75%. So while Hillary has been doing her little victory dance, she should be reminded while she to date has gotten approximately 60% of the REGISTERED DEMOCRATIC voters, they WONT BE ENOUGH TO SECURE HER PRECIOUS.......THE PRESIDENCY. The votes Hillary Clinton will need to win the general election from the other registered democrats and independents ARE SUPPORTING Bernie Sanders.

This means, outside the very limited electoral universe of the Democratic party, Sen Sanders is leading a new national political party which may consists of between 42% - 45% of the ENTIRE American electorate with establishment Democrats and Republicans dividing the remainder. This hidden majority will soon be very visible in the GENERAL ELECTION. No one wins or keeps the Presidency by winning their party's primary.

Sen Sanders new political juggernaut has accomplished a fundraising miracle. Recent FEC reports of campaign contributions have confirmed he has raised MORE money than Hillary's and the DNC's collection of economic elites, Billionaires and SuperPACs.

In the process Sen Sanders and his supporters have performed another miracle by doing what virtually every political party and pundit KNEW could only be achieved by changing the composition of the SCOTUS, both chambers of Congress and the federal tax code; the NULLIFICATION OF CITIZENS UNITED.

What does just these more obvious aspects of Bernie's Open Secret mean going forward in terms of the Democratic nomination? In the immortal words of Yogi Bera IT AIN'T OVER UNTIL ITS OVER and that refers to the general election, not the Democratic convention beginning July 25th.

Winning the Democratic or Republican nomination MUST BE KEPT IN ITS APPROPRIATE CONTEXT, its a INTERMEDIATE NOT FINAL STEP.___Independents make up the largest segment of the electorate. They love Bernie, they dislike Clinton

If Democrats actually want to win up and down the ballot, we need Bernie Sanders at the top of the ticket.

Clinton not airing ads in upcoming primary states
I think the Clintonites will try to spin this as "she's already won", but remind them that:
1. Clinton has been doing lavish fundraisers by the rich to fuel her campaign (and is one of the worst recipients of money from Wall Street, Big Oil, Pharma Corps, Arms Dealers, tax dodgers, etc.), 

2. that her SuperPACS have been spending on this primary (despite their promise to only spend on the general election, and that includes a $1 million campaign to troll online), 

3. and that most of the money in those joint fundraising/data sharing pacts supposedly for down ballot Dems has actually gone to help Clinton's own campaign, skirting the already crooked rules of campaign finance.
