      Nevada, that is awesome. Which translates to Bernie winning two early states and Iowa was effectively a tie.

    • Liza says:

      So happy about Bernie winning Nevada.

      We are the WEST, y’all. This ain’t the Confederacy (except Arizona where I live, but at least I’m in Pima County, not Maricopa.)

    Walker says Cruz victory in Wisconsin can change momentum
    By Scott Bauer | AP April 1 at 10:41 PM

    MILWAUKEE — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, in his first joint appearance with former presidential rival Ted Cruz, implored hundreds of Republican Party activists and insiders on Friday to back the Texas senator, saying a win for him next week will change momentum in the race and unite the party.

    Cruz, who called Walker a “rock star,” hugged the two-term governor as he took the stage at an event just four days before Wisconsin’s primary. Ohio Gov. John Kasich and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, speaking on behalf of Donald Trump, also attended the Milwaukee County GOP dinner.

    Cruz won Walker’s endorsement Monday, giving him a boost as he looks to win Wisconsin and its 42 delegates. Walker planned to campaign with Cruz across the state Sunday.

      This is good news. Finally, some electoral truth. Good lesson for those who try to influence election outcomes like Harry Reid.

    That jarring moment on CNN when the Conservative commentator knows enough to, and is the one correctly addressing the President’s wife as the First Lady, while Angela Rye who ought to know better talks about the ‘First Daughters’, but decides to glibly refer to the First Lady as ‘Michelle Obama’…

    My people, my people…

    I also find it hard to believe that folks are behaving as if they were completely unaware of the attacks on FLOTUS, or it wasn’t all really relevant or offensive, sexist, racist, misogynistic enough – until of course the agenda-driven David Brock and his Media Matters outfit, now unfortunately an extension of the Clinton campaign – cobbled together a quick 2 minute video of some of the milder and less offensive attacks on our FLOTUS…8 years later…and only as a way to get folks riled up to vote against the Republicans and to rally in solidarity and vote for the female candidate – who just happens to be Hillary…the same Hillary and her cohorts who’ve never been supportive of her successor…

    I find it hard to believe, that with everything our historic First Lady has been so blatantly and publicly subjected to for nearly 8 years, that this 2 minute plus Media Matters video is what everybody including the Washington D.C based former Executive Director, General Counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus, now turned political strategist – Angela Rye’s point of reference and what she’s relying on to make the case about the glaring attacks on, and disrespect of our historic First Lady..

    Sorry fam, but I just can’t…

    Armed hate group backs out of Texas mosque protest when faced with gun-toting worshipers
    02 APR 2016 AT 18:16 ET

    An anti-Muslim hate group planned an armed protest at an African-American mosque in Texas — but it didn’t go as planned.

    The group, the Bureau of American Islamic Relations, or BAIR, has made it a habit in the past to show up at mosques with firearms and intimidate worshipers. In November, armed protesters stalked Muslims in Irving. In December, they again stalked Muslims at the Islamic Association of North Texas.

    But on Saturday, the group that makes a show of carrying guns while they surround places of worship was met in-kind at a Nation of Islam mosque in South Dallas, the Dallas Morning News reports.

    “This is an armed defense maneuver, making sure that our communities are safe and secure from any insurgents coming in,” Krystal Muhammad of the New Black Panther Party told Fox4. Muhammad was armed with a large shotgun. “We won’t allow anybody to come in and try to intimidate our brothers and sisters.”

    He told the truth…

    And here’s more proof of what I’ve been telling you fam of how the Clinton friends were working overtime to weaken the President to get Hillary in for the 2012 elections…Just 2 years in, Lynn de Rothschild was out and about talking about how bad the Presidents economic policies were and talking up the Clinton years…And please nobody tell me Hillary and Bill were not in on this…that this was not coordinated…

  5. eliihass says:

    Never forget…even as Hillary was doing her half-hearted jig about making her fake ‘supporting’ then Senator Obama move, she and Bill as they did throughout the last 8 years, continued to coordinate with their high-profile friends and fundraisers to continue to attack the Democratic front-funner, President and standard bearer…

    Remember that Lynn de Rothschild fund-raised for and recruited Jon Huntsman away from his post as Ambassador to China under President Obama, to run against the President in 2012…and when that failed, she put her support behind Mitt Romney, until they fell out …

    • eliihass says:

      Lynn de Rothschild was only concerned about ‘Obama the elitist, gouging the rich’…rich people like her..

      In one breath she told you she was about the little people, the ‘rednecks’ she called them, who then Senator Obama had ‘insulted’ with his ‘smear’ of them ‘bitter and clinging to their guns and religion’…people who reminded her of her own middle class upbringing…but the next, she was talking about how then Senator Obama was looking to transfer wealth from rich folks like her to the serfs…she called it a form of undeserved Welfare to

  6. eliihass says:

    These are the same people who are now outraged about Trump, and want you so scared you vote for Hillary…

    Let’s refresh folks memories about Lynn de Rothschild fam…Remind those who tell you how horrid Bernie Sanders is because …Cornel West..

    • eliihass says:

      Next time anyone talks about Susan Sarandon, remind them of Lynn de Rothschild who was willing to install Sarah Palin in the Oval office…The same Sarah Palin even Trump has the good sense to know isn’t V.P or cabinet-level material…

    • eliihass says:

      This was precisely what then President-elect Obama was trying to guard against when he insisted that as part of the negotiations for Hillary to get the SoS position, that some of Bill’s gigs and dealings had to be run by the administration to avoid any conflict of interest – or the appearance of it…

      Bill of course chafed at the suggestion…and it is said Bill and his team did not abide by the agreement once Hillary got in…

      The rules never apply to them…they’re too special you know..

    • rikyrah says:

      uh huh

      uh huh

  7. No she didn’t?! Say it ain’t so? Hillary Clinton is the most disgusting pandering liar on the planet. GTFOH Hillary

    • yahtzeebutterfly says:

      Oh, come on Hilary, get real. You would have done so much in years past for the Black community if you had been influenced by these great women.

    • eliihass says:

      LOL SG…

      If she could get away with it, she’d probably claim Dorothy Height was her wet nurse and Maya Angelou the traveling volunteer Sunday school bible teacher at that place were she claims to have volunteered babysitting children of immigrant workers..

    From DON at TOD:

    At yesterday’s press conference President Obama laid bare the blue print for campaigning against Trump, question his intellect. You want to wound someone, mock their intellect. The reason Trump hasn’t responded yet is because he just can’t jump out there and say something idiotic because if he does he will just be confirming what President said. So now Trump has to respond coherently, which he’s having trouble doing.

    • eliihass says:

      Conservatives including their outlets like Breitbart – staffed by despicable racists like the recently departed Michelle Fields Ben Shapiro – and some so-called Democrats and PUMAs too, have spent years viciously maligning, dehumanizing and disparaging the historic first black FLOTUS, and maliciously bullying her minor daughters on occasion..

      There was hardly a peep from most quarters…certainly no outrage …Not from conservatives who now act shocked and outraged at the mild attacks their candidates now toss at each others wife..and not from Democrats who turned a blind eye and somehow never saw fit, found the time or made any effort to shut down the non-stop assault on the First Lady…never rallied in support of her, or offered push back against the vile attacks and those who attacked her…even if black twitter successfully offered some push-back when her minor daughters were picked on ..

      Let’s not even get it twisted…

      The attacks on FLOTUS have been real, unrelenting, unprecedented, vicious – and in a category all by itself…the girls have certainly been targeted, but the attempt to minimize what their mother has been subjected to and has had to endure for 8 long years, by lumping her together as usual with her teenage daughters, is not only insulting, but continues the perpetuation of the disrespect and demeaning of this historic First Lady..

      And don’t even get me started on all these Johnny-come-latelies – many of whom are less concerned about FLOTUS and her daughters…regardless of how much faux-outrage they feign and now try hard to muster. They are much more interested in opportunistically exploiting the attacks that begun years ago and never stopped, and the dehumanization the historic First Lady has suffered…but only as sport, and specifically for their own self-serving political purposes…

      All of a sudden, we’re now seeing or hearing people who never gave a damn about the attacks on FLOTUS, now endlessly faux-outraged and talking and writing about ‘…the attacks on Hillary and Michelle Obama…’. Phuleeze…

      As if 8 years of unrelenting racist and dehumanizing attacks on Mrs Obama was not a thing – until of course it could be used in some way to once again make the argument for that awful misogyny that is only ever a thing and only ever invoked in defense of Hillary…
