Sanders sweeps Saturday caucuses

Hillary's meltdown continues:
Bernie Sanders swept all three Democratic caucuses Saturday — scoring victories in Hawaii, Alaska and delegate-rich Washington state.

While the underdog’s West Coast wins are not nearly enough to trip up former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's path to the nomination, his wide margin of victory provides his campaign with a burst of momentum heading into a 10-day break before the next primary contest. The Vermont senator's big victories are also typically followed by a considerable fundraising bump.

Sanders was victorious in Washington state's caucuses 72.7 percent to Clinton's 27.1 percent and won Alaska's caucuses by a landslide, defeating Clinton 81.6 percent to 18.4 percent. At 4 a.m. Sunday, with 87.8 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders was declared the winner in Hawaii, leading Clinton 70.6 percent to 29.2 percent.
I will be surprised if Hillary Clinton doesn't withdraw from the race for health reasons before the DNC. She quite clearly is not well and she won't want to endure the humiliation of losing to such an obvious no-hoper as Sanders.

It is considered axiomatic that successful politicians have to genuinely like people - and Hillary Rodham Clinton does not like people.

So far, she has been a more-or-less successful politician, but here's hoping the axiom proves true again.

Happy Easter to you and yours, VD. Keep up the great blog.

Hillary's amazing at enduring humilation. I mean, not in a healthy or even successful way, and she's probably going to win, but I do love these little moments that show how completely she's dependent on fawning sycophants to carry her wide ass over the line.

Happy Easter. We have already won the true victory.

I think they just have to genuinely like interacting with people, which is not quite the same thing. Psychopaths enjoy manipulating people, but they have no personal feelings toward them.

It would be interesting to know what percentage of the Sanders voters are "ANYONE!!! but Shrillary" versus how many think Sanders would actually be a good choice. Given expression "the Soviet of Washington" to describe some of our politicians here in the Evergreen State, I suspect it's a ridiculously high number that think Sanders might be genuinely good.

I think either would be very bad for the nation, just in slightly different ways. But of course, that is not to imply that any of the Rs will magically solve out problems, either. But given a choice of bad or worse, I'll usually opt for "bad."

It is amazing to me how few people seem to realize both party's machines are shooting flaming failure out of every available orifice this year. Lots of Republicans of various flavors sure that their party is going down in Trump-shaped flames. Lots of Democrats sure the Republicans are going down in flames.

But when Hillary falls, who is there to pick up the baton? Why isn't whoever is supposedly the answer to that already in the race? A putatively national-scale party and they've got two candidates, both terrible. This is a terrible performance.

Really a demonstration that being too close to one's "team" can blind one to obvious truths.

Alaska's leftists tend to be hard left. The only Berner I know couldn't vote for Trump, because Trump is an old meanie. He is fully on board with the Bernie socialist program, but despises Hillary (who has about the same program) because she is too corrupt for the corruption to be ignored.

By the way, happy Easter, you all. Christ is risen!

Blogger Murray March 27, 2016 12:33 PM  

Hillary is evidently a sociopath, with no higher ambition behind power for its own sake, and a leading indicator of the decline of the American republic (as is Trump, though in a very different way). A candidate like Clinton could come to the fore only in a terminally decadent, late-stage democracy like ours. Her grasping, soulless obsession with gaining power for its own sake should disqualify her outright, but not in Pozzed America!

Does she have any talent for leadership? No. Administrative skills? No. Any significant accomplishments? Ha. Has she ever displayed evidence of deep insight, or even a single original thought? To ask the question is to answer it.

Even her health problems are evidence of her defective character (if the rumors are true). A man of virtue would remove himself from the race, on leaving that he would likely be unable to see his program through. But not Hillary. It matters not at all to her if she dies within months of reaching the presidency, as long as she reaches it.

Blogger Cataline Sergius March 27, 2016 12:37 PM  

I scribbled about her health problems back in December.

Post Concussion Syndrome in a woman in her late sixties is easily grounds for enforced retirement. True, both she and the media are saying she has completely and miraculously recovered from her concussion.

They were lying.

You don't recover from that at her age. You just don't.



We were told to elect her because she was the brains of the Clinton Outfit. But now those brains are damaged. You can't have that kind of an injury without impairment of higher cognitive function. She has lost one standard deviation of her IQ. On top of that will be memory dysfunction as well.

@8 - considering Seattle has a statue of flipping Lenin, and an avowed socialist on the city council, they likely could. I shake my head, but can't convince people that they will eventually run out of other people's money, and then it is going to be their taxes going up. A staggering number of people around here want to tax the hell out of the richest 10%, while not realizing that they are in it. They don't connect the economic freedom that gave them their wealth with cause-effect thing, and taxes are the opposite of economic freedom.

Does that sound like they take such an obligation seriously as Jews? That being said, no doubt the Jewish ethos my uncle and aunt grew up in colored their politics. But my uncle was no red diaper baby. My grandfather was a staunch anti-communist, having fled the reds in Ukraine. My understanding is the family were tutors for the royal family.

Anonymous A.B. Prosper March 27, 2016 4:10 PM  

Bernie is the same age as Trump and in good health, much better health than Clinton. He isn't going to be the Democratic nominee unless Clinton resigns for some reason though

He is not in any risk from the powers that be as the need a backup to Hillary and is not a real socialist in any case. He isn't really that different than Trump and in a "Whiter" USA might actually be a really good candidate if that alternate US had our bad wealth distribution.

In any case any of his big proposals wouldn't fly with any Republican controlled anything. The D's won't get control of both houses

He isn't a typical White Hater as far as I can tell though, he a is European style moderate social democrat with slight nationalist , non interventionist leanings. Heck is fiscally sane enough to have a plan, don't know if it would work to pay for it which is better than typical Democrats

He is quite mainstream anywhere in Europe, nearly could run as a Conservative there.

He isn't very strong on the border compared to Trump I'd rate Bernie as fair to weak but Sanders does favor a number of initiatives that would reduce immigration directly and indirectly.

He isn't dreadful on the gun issue either though not good.

What causes the big freak out is that Neo Liberalism is the real American religion on the Right and someone who is focused on redistribution bothers the Right to a huge degree,

However the looters wouldn't mind too much since wealth redistribution is good for them as well.

He'd get one term, some wealth redistribution and not much else.

If somehow he had to be the nominee, I have no idea how he'd fair against Trump. My guess is that Trump would crush him as many Republicans especially on the Ayn Rand Jihad wing of the party who hate Trump would vote for Trump. They'd really prefer Gary Johnson or write in somebody else but better The Donald than Felling the Bern.

Its also possible that the PTB's will saddle us with Cruz vs. Hillary whether .we like it or not.

Its unwise though it pushes the civil war time table up 5 years or so, possibly to 5 years from now as this John Robb scenario notes

http://globalguerrillas.typepad.com/globalguerrillas/2016/03/how-the-us-ends-up-in-a-civil-war.html

I have enormous respect for Robb though he is often a bit over the top as I think he is on this one.

All that rambling, I'm a Trump guy though if it came to Cruz vs Sanders which is unlikely I honestly don't know. I think I'd abstain.

You make a good point, and the folks were convinced Hil-Dawg had the SDs last election also as @35 said. Of course, I think Obama was a special case since they could use the "Nation's first" label to jam him down our throat.

They will probably use a two pronged attack to use the above "Nation's first woman president" and the in-built party cheating plan known as Super delegates.

Plus, the democrats generally are better at regaining control of their useful idiots. The days of the SDS donning motorcycle helmets to rumble with Daly's police goon squads are long gone.

Best case scenario is Hillary getting the nomination due strictly to the super delegate votes.

1962 delegates left. Crazy Uncle Bernie needs 1316 of them, a whopping 67%. Broom Rider needs a measly 647, less than a third. Far too much of a lead. After the nominations, the Hildabeast will be Trumped in the debates (if her people even let them happen) and it will be wonderful. We'll want to record them so we can watch again and again.

"After the nominations, the Hildabeast will be Trumped in the debates"

This is the dynamic with every election for some time.
The left-leaning media casts the republican nominee as a cross between "literally hitler" and Pennywise from Stephen King's "IT", and the moment he takes the stage and fails to eat children on live TV he gets a minimum 10% poll boost, as Romney did.

The comments section is heartening. Hopefully people will realise that they're not the minority & retake their nations from the globalists & leftists.


Regarding Hillary.

* She looks quite unwell
* Surely seeing members of the same families show up as the only contenders for the top job says something isn't right in a supposedly democratic country with a population measured in the 100's of millions?
* She seems quite unhinged
* From what I see in Australian media she's put forward as the front runner with Bernie a bit of a joke.


Trump is portraying in Aussie media as a side show & his supporters as being of low intellect & racist. Whenever someone in my presence makes disparaging remarks about Trump or his supporters I question them making them uncomfortable in their ignorance.

If they're being a smart arse I'll flip the conversation onto Australia. What, with them being Aussies my questions should be easy for these Political experts.

* What is the difference between a state and a territory (we have both)?
* Which is the largest Australian State or Territory? This is my favourite because they all answer "Western Australia" and they're all wrong. The answer is the Australian Antarctic Territory. It's also a great bar bet ;-)

Trump wins the delegate-count before the convention.

To keep those super delegates, Cankles can't have Bernie continue to win states. If he tightens that count of your standard issue delegates, the super delegates aren't going stay cemented. That's what happened last time, exactly. Cankles had another huge lead in the supers until Obama kept winning states and they all bolted on her.

They are in a very untenable position among their own base if they find themselves backing the one who is not the popular choice. These supers are political creatures, most are Democrat office holders. If there's any blood in the water they will freak out and become totally unreliable for Cankles.

Clinton will not only be the nominee, she will be the President.

That said, it is very nice of D voters to demonstrate the depth of their contempt for her. What they are going through right now is what R voters had to endure with that fuckwit Romney.

How does she get the 60-62 million votes she'd need? Or do you really think she's getting Obama-level 65+million? I just want to see the people who are convinced Hillary's going to win the general pony up some turnout estimates.

@ Trump: Coming home from work yesterday morning @730am cst, I heard a pgm on AFR called `The Moral Dilemma`(morald.com) on which the host in so many minced word inferred that Trump could be the Endtimes Antichrist given his AIPAC speech(``I can make any deal.``). Please, we could just as well say that the churchian cucks could be the Harlot that rides the Repuke Beast in Revelation. BTW, the host is black so maybe they think we won`t react, but what they don`t know about us is...WE DON`T CARE!

Clinton hasn't got a chance in hell of winning the Presidency. She can't shake a birdman who gets bullied at his own rallies...and you think she can cheat her way past Trump?

Don't be ridiculous.

Don't overestimate the American people.

Also recall that many people right-of-center will not vote for Trump (for whatever reasons; there's a whole list of them, many of them legitimate). Republicans can't win without their own bloc showing up, and while I do think that Trump will bring over some blue-collar Democrats, I'm not sure that it will be enough.

It could be. But it's too early to be sure, IMO.

#73 - I'll tell you about numbers, all about them.

On Friday, I traveled by car from San Diego County to Las Vegas, Nevada. I spent Saturday in Nevada and Arizona on business. Today, I drove home. I saw, in cars, restaurants, casinos, walking, working, thousands and thousands of people. Thousands.

The number of European-Americans I saw was less than fifty.

Those are my numbers.

I am amazed at the number of "conservative Christians" who are apoplectic about Trump. I suspect most of these fully supported McCain and Romney as well.

Really disappointing by those I would have thought I shared a world view with in the past.

Anonymous An Observer March 28, 2016 12:56 AM  

No, really, what turnout do you think Donald Trump is looking at? 40 million? 50 million? 60 million?

Or coming at it from the other direction, how many millions of Republican voters do you think will stay home in the general, given that Republican turnout has been at 55-60 million for the last three Presidential contests? Romney got just under 60m and there is reasonable evidence that 2-5 million stayed home, with the high end of that making it possible for Romney to have gotten 270 EVs and the Presidency.

Hispanics are 8-9% of the vote, Asians even less. The election comes down to black and white turnout, and I'm still waiting for someone to explain where 65 million mostly blacks and whites turn out to vote for Hillary. Or even 60 million.

@76 There are NO legitimate reasons not to vote for Trump if he is the nominee. Of course, if you or your family are profiting from the looting of America by the Oligarchy......then you might vote for the Clinton crime gang.

Anonymous Jack Amok March 28, 2016 1:07 AM  

At the very least, it would be interesting to see 2 anti establishment candidates go head to head.

And much to Nate's liking, they're both from NYC.


Also, they're the only two candidates not itching to start another war. And they're the only two asking the right questions, even if Sanders has crackpot answers (hell, maybe Trump does too). They're asking questions about people getting screwed by the establishment, jobs sold out, futures sold out...

If Clinton gets the nomination (the likely scenario I think, unless she keels over), I could see Trump getting a ton of Bernie supporters. Knife the banksters, restructure student loans, reiterate the "no foreign wars" angle...

Jourdan, did you check how many of those thousands were registered to vote?

I'd love to see Hillary Umbridge go up against The Donald in an unscripted debate. My guess is that he'd overpower her like the Wehrmacht going through Luxembourg.

OpenID denektenorsk March 28, 2016 9:34 AM  

All of that hard work and Comrade Sanders' nomination will be stolen by Hilliary's super delegates. I hope the delicous irony isn't lost on the socialists.

Another tid-bit: here in Canada CPAC has done (for their required purposes anyway) extensive research into voter motivations. Their findings are that approximately 3% of the voting public vote the issues. The rest vote emotionally. We could split hairs over the exact percentage but the point is made.

We certainly saw that with His Hairness being elected last fall. There was the ABC (Anything But Conservative) crowd who couldn't answer any platform questions when put on the spot by reporters. A good number of them didn't even know the date of the Federal election. I was at a bar on the night of the election and there was more coverage (and excitement over) a baseball game than who was going to run the country for the next 4 years.

Then there was the Sunni Ways (sorry Sunny Ways) feelz campaign slogan of the feminist high priest. It was 2015 when it comes to equity of outcome in the cabinet, but a few years earlier it was still the 7th century when pandering for votes at the local Mosque (picture of Trudeau at a gender separated mosque here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/30328997465845977/). I'm sure the progressives will handwave it away, Tarek is a bad Muslim after all.

Already our minister of labour has demonstrated she is a blittering idiot but hey, she has the right kit in her undergarments so all is well.

It is now 2016 and he received an award for gender equality so his legacy is secured. Screw the rest of the country with the massive $30 billion deficit we are going to endure for the next X years. Interest rates are at historic lows, dontchaknow? Until they are not of course. For a country that has less population than the state of California this is a MASSIVE tax and spend campaign. "Investing in our future for our children" has actually been said. I'd rather not be born $50K+ in debt, but hey, I guess that's just me.

IIRC they even hired the campaign manager of Barrack Obama's 2008 campaign (Hope and Change) because there are no jobs Canadians won't outsource.

I'm sure the numbers don't change that much south of the border. Hence why Trump doesn't waste his time on platform planks and all of Bernie's speeches invoke what they feel is right, not what is actually fair to everyone.

"Representative Democracy" is the best system we have come up with? Many of my "peers" are demonstrably not my peers and yet we have equal voting rights. We are all doomed...

There's no way Hillary will allow anything to stop her from being the first woman president. No back room deals or arguments will persuade her.

She'll drop dead one day after getting the office and feel it was all worth it, just for the history books.

Blogger Alexander March 28, 2016 11:34 AM  

If Hilary is allowed to weasel her way out of a one-on-one debate with Trump by doing something so perfidious as dropping out of the race, I will feel very cheated.

For me, having Hilary meltdown on national television to the point of losing control of her bowels is something the American people deserve to witness. With as much that the political class has stolen from the native children of this country, we cannot let them get away with taking this from us as well.

Well said. I will add: nor does she care. Her aggressive nature is purely self serving.

"I scribbled about her health problems back in December.

Post Concussion Syndrome in a woman in her late sixties is easily grounds for enforced retirement. True, both she and the media are saying she has completely and miraculously recovered from her concussion.

They were lying.

You don't recover from that at her age. You just don't.

We were told to elect her because she was the brains of the Clinton Outfit. But now those brains are damaged. You can't have that kind of an injury without impairment of higher cognitive function. She has lost one standard deviation of her IQ. On top of that will be memory dysfunction as well."

Precisely why the TPTB want her in the oval office. Think about it...

Trump will easily beat Hillary. But Trump vs Sanders is too close to call.
