Bernie Sanders' Conference Call to His Delegates Tonight Was Leaked - PLEASE READ -- I'Ve Done My Best to Report What I Heard

- 1099 days ago -
he stated that he was in no way, shape, or form 'suspending his candidacy' and was active still and through the convention even though he knows he does not have the delegates necessary to win. That is a highly difficult and principled position to take.

I think that it is better to actually listen to Bernie himself!
LISTEN: Bernie Sanders’ Conference Call with His Delegates

Thanks, BM

I should also repeal my own earlier statement on another thread, (sorry, too many on this topic plus numerous cross postings to remember) where I attempted to call Bernie a sorry looser. I now agree this was a "masterful chess move", absolutely!
However, while this was perfect for America and Bernie's goals of transforming his country, I still stick to my opinion also made earlier regarding what are MY priorities for the world, not being an American!
And a HRC administration long enough to wreak more havoc is therefor unacceptable to me.

YAY...good stuff. There is also this making the rounds:

Q. Why did Bernie endorse Hillary now?
A. They threatened to completey shut him out of the convention if he didn't.
Q. Couldn't he have said screw them and go and fight at the convention anyway?
A. No. Hillary has more delegates, Superdelegates, and supporters on the DNC rules committee. They would have voted down every one of our platforms, denied Bernie the opportunity to speak, and basically shut him out of the entire process. All the leverage he has gained up to this point would be gone.
Q. So wait, Bernie DIDN'T quit today?
A. No. He had to say she won the primary, he endorses her and will help the party defeat Trump, yadda yadda but he DID NOT concede. There is a very big and important difference. Had he conceded, all of his delegates would go to Hillary and he would no longer be an option for nominee.
Q. So Bernie can actually still win??
A. YES. And if he wasn't still TRYING to win, he would have conceded. The ONLY option he had to get to the convention with his delegates behind him and have a chance to still win was to do what he did today. He is not a traitor. He didn't sell us out. He did the only possible thing he could have done to keep fighting for the nomination.
Q. So how can Bernie still win if he's losing the delegate count and he just said he will help Hillary win the election?
A. By far the most important thing to the DNC, even more important than making sure Hillary beats Bernie, is making sure the Democratic nominee beats the Republicans in November. They scrutinize every poll, every opinion of the public, every event to judge whether a candidate is strong enough to win in November. There are A LOT of things going on right now that show how weak of a general election candidate Hillary Clinton is:
-66% of the country sees her as untrustworthy
-60% thinks she should have been indicted for the email scandal
-A lot of Bernie supporters won't vote for her
-Congress has requested the Department of Justice investigate her for lying under oath about the email scandal
-There's a possibility more emails will be leaked by wikileaks or hackers further proving her guilt
-Many believe the FBI is secretly investigating the Clinton Foundation
-Her "wins" during the primary havr been tainted with accusations of fraud, suppression, lawsuits, and investigations
And then there's Bernie. An honest candidate people trust and whose approval rating and trustworthy rating crushes Clinton's. This is the argument Bernie will make at the convention. With all his 1,900 delegates inside arguing this case and 100,000 supporters outside arguing this case, we hope the DNC realizes he's the only choice. He CAN win the convention, but he has to get there first. That's why he endorsed her today.
Q. So it's still important that all of his delegates go to the convention and we all still March on it like we planned?
A. It's more important now than it ever was before.
Q. What if the DNC still refuses to nominate him at the convention? Can he still run third party now that he endorsed her?
A. Yes. In fact, running third party has never been an option until AFTER the convention. We need to stick with Bernie and see this through to the convention. He's led us this far. Do not abandon him now.

Thx Arielle, exacty right, I read this too elsewhere, is why I said a "masterful chess move" he made!
But I am not sure about running 3rd party, at least not as a nationwide option by my understanding..? Plus he may not be so interested in it, leaving him less chances to constructively work with progressive dems up and down ballot and in congress, among other hurdles.

From reddit post:

"Bernie's ultimate goal was a Blue Senate which was as progressive...and that he intended to increase his power there.... He hopes to serve as a leader and a catalyst for a more Progressive Senate....So basically his vision is still alive and the plans are all intact, and he has a clear plan, a good plan.....These reforms would be momentous, and he is still fighting and definitely not conceding....."

"He simply feels Trump is scary.....Go back to what he thinks of Trump and why and how he would vow to defeat him no matter what, and what we are seeing is someone who is making good on not only a promise but also a principle, which is that he will not let America be actually destroyed by someone who he regards as a Fascist..."

It's good he didn't concede out right. Anything is possible in this wacky election, especially when Clintons are involved. Some Americans never seem to understand it's never over with the Clintons, never, ever.
Bernie shouldn't (under any circumstance) turn over his supporter/donor email list to the Clintons. Hillary has plenty of funds here and from abroad to defeat Slump. Bernie's gonna need that list to start/fund the New Democratic Socialist Party if/when the republicans finally split apart in 17' - 18'.

It's possible this YouTube video is some place in one of the comments below the politics articles; but, I did not see it in the comments above. Bernie is playing chess:

I will add that if Bernie comes out of the convention as the nominee, I will vote for him; otherwise, I will vote for Jill Stein.

YESS, my bad-had a blackout when asking that Q about Arielle's post- I actually HAD ALREADY read, just too darn many websites these days with all the FAST multiple incidents happening!
so thanks all, Randy, Arielle, Evelyn, donna. I have seen all those sites and articles, posts before-except for the video from Donna.
I am more concerned right now about the COUP happening in Turkey at this time!

Angelika R (143)
Friday July 15, 2016, 3:07 pm
OK., well no idea if that guy in the video is actually who it says he is but, as Bernie's camera man, he -or whoever uploaded that video- should know how to spell Sanders's name I would think! that makes it a bit foggy.. What is told in the clip isn't anything new, it is what's been posted here in the various threads and links, still good to reach those who prefer videos to articles and watching to reading.

Angelika, I hadn't noticed the title. I read the description below the video and in the description, Bernie's name is right. I am forgiving of mistakes like that because some people don't seem to remember when a person has an S on the end of his or her name, then the apostrophe goes after the S in order to show possession. I have seen this in articles that are supposed to be written by educated people. It is possible that one person wrote the description and the person who wrote the title just copied and pasted it.

There are some things that I have a hard time with forgiving: Regime Change comes to mind.

Lois Jordan (63)
Friday July 15, 2016, 4:21 pm
Noted. Thanks for posting BMutiny.
I will be tuned in to the Dem convention with hopes that Bernie will be our candidate. I have previously read that there will be a huge protest there as well. Bernie has always been in it for the long run---hoping to turn the party more progressive at the roots. My faith in him continues, as he is the ONLY candidate I agree with on all the issues.

Angelika R (143)
Friday July 15, 2016, 4:56 pm
Alright Donna, it just struck my eyes and it will probably not have been that camera man who wrote it and uploaded it. I haven't seen such mistakes as you mention in reputable outlets but perhaps they do happen when the agency has no proofreader for editors.
No big deal-and yesss agreed for sure: regime change, like they are still hellbent to push through in Syria is an absolute NO NO! anywhere and anytime.

Sanders gets primetime speaking slot at Democratic National Convention

Other speakers include Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Obama, Biden and DREAMer Astrid Silva.

DNC 2016 schedule of events and speakers

Here's a preliminary schedule of headlining speakers slated to address the 2016 Democratic convention.

Earlier reports had said Warren on Mon,--but not mentioned now. The Mon. was interpreted by some to mean she'd been ruled out as a VP...wonder what to make of not mentioned anywhere now...

I've told you all along I do not believe Hitlery would ever really pick EW as veep, no way! Her ego would not allow that. And the DNC probably has its own good reasons as well not wanting to listen to sharp-tongued rants from EW.. they cannot deny Bernie to speak but EW is no candidate ;-) ..we'll see

EW has renewed her push on certain proposals to reign in Wall St. and the financial sector in the period after the Mon. time slot was reported and the convention is fully funded by corporate donors (just like the GOP's)--suggests corporate input/veto power on speakers.

Thx Judi for those! Can't quite understand the HuffPo piece, tho. Why would they even mention Sanders as a VP possibility, when he clearly said he would NOT take ANY position iha Clinton cabinet! As for EW, see above, all said as for my position.

WRP at his best again, wow! While his previous piece didn't thrill me too much, sounded almost like a tribute fora late Bernie;-) WRP's garden and kitchen -yummy! Where does he live where porcupines run free?? :)
Inccidently I had just also read and watched Swanson's entry, ALL should watch JFK again now!!

anyone know, why her page is not showing.

Actua ly today is the FIRST DAY for me -after, what, a week?-where that silly FBl notice below has disappeared ! in boh, FF and Chrome. Also the menu bar on top - where it says new mail/PMs-butterflies-GS-name. is there and REMAINS there after you click on any choice under your name-like kudos, friend etc..
that wasn't so until today. Looks like some pregress at least..

True Judi-they only hid her profile and deleted her from our friends list, disabled her comment performance-unless she chose to do that on her own- not credible tho.
and I need to also take back my 4:33 am statement, all the annoyance came right back..sometimes it is there, sometimes not.
