Global forecaster Gerald Celente breaks down the reasons behind his Trends Research Institute’s forecast that when presidential candidate Bernie Sanders bows out of the Democratic primary, he’ll join Hillary Clinton’s campaign as her running mate. Hillary for president, with Bernie as running by her side for vice president, towers over any combinations on the radar now for the GOP. But does it matter? Elsewhere, Celente explains the economy is in a holding pattern; don’t be fooled by recent spikes. The market riggers have fewer and fewer tools to keep the economy on life support.
There are two things we all need to know about the upcoming 2016 election:
1. Millions of likely Democratic voters have already been stripped from the voter rolls in critical states like Ohio. The key reporting on this has been done by the great Greg Palast, who has shown that a computer program coordinated by the Republican secretary of state of Kansas is being used in some two dozen states to steal from a substantial percentage of the citizenry their right to vote. The raw numbers are high enough that they could have a significant impact on the presidential, US Senate, House and many other elections this fall. The ACLU has now sued Jon Husted, Ohio’s secretary of state, over the stripping of two million citizens from Ohio’s voter rolls.
On the Democratic side, there’s nary a whimper from the candidate who’s been winning the popular vote but lagging in party delegate votes. Bernie Sanders is playing by party rules, hoping to win delegate and super delegate votes from Hillary Clinton at the party’s nominating convention (in Philadelphia) in July.
But there’s an all-out war in the Republican camp, with Donald Trump, the party’s winningest candidate, railing against a “corrupt” and “crooked” system that is denying him his fair share of delegates. Trump isn’t waiting to persuade nominating delegates to switch at the GOP’s national convention in Cleveland; the party’s “rules,” he says, are patently unfair because they are being manipulated to favor the will and choice of the party elite.
Leid Stories in a commentary contends that the battle over delegates and the charges of corruption in the parties’ primary process are one of the best gifts the duopoly can give. It brings into plain view why neither party can be trusted to respect the sanctity of the people’s vote.
No surprise, really, in how things turned out yesterday–Donald Trump triumphed in three of five states, Florida, Illinois and North Carolina; Marco Rubio lost his own state and ended his campaign; Ted Cruz remained win less but is hoping to capture Rubio’s supporters in a long shot bid to remain in the race; and John Kasich scored his first victory, his home state of Ohio.
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton bested her lone opponent, Bernie Sanders, in four states—Florida, Illinois, Ohio and North Carolina—with the final vote in Missouri too close to call.
As Leid Stories said yesterday, Super Tuesday “more than likely will cause a whittling of the GOP’s four-man slate, and on the Democratic side, a locked lead on being the nominee.” With Clinton appearing to have that locked lead on the Democratic nomination, the question becomes: “What Will Bernie Do?”
It’s Super Tuesday (the third for this election cycle), and Democratic and Republican presidential candidates are in make-or-break primaries in delegate-rich Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina. Results by the end of the day more than likely will cause a whittling of the GOP’s four-man slate, and on the Democratic side, a locked lead on being the nominee. Leid Stories continues yesterday’s discussion on what this all means to and for the rest of us.
Election madness continues in the aftermath of Super Tuesday. Bernie Sanders defies the odds by carrying four states (and almost Massachusetts). Donald Trump blows away the GOP. But what does it all mean? How do we expand a successful cultural revolution into a strategy to beat the corporations that are killing us all?
We’re joined in Solartopia to talk about this with David Akadjian a columnist for Daily Kos and author of The Little Book of Revolution. David’s approach to social change is, he says, “a way to make the seemingly impossible task of restoring democracy possible.”
