Sanders rips closed party primaries in New York: ‘That’s wrong’

It’s wrong that independents are unable to vote in New York’s primary, Bernie Sanders said Tuesday.

“I’m trying to do everything I can to get my vote casted for him,” a male supporter told reporters in New York while gesturing toward Sanders. “I can sign a court order and an affidavit and whatever I need to do, and I’m going to do that, but it shouldn’t be this hard to vote.”

“No, it should not be,” Sanders replied. “Today, 3 million people in the state of New York who are independents have lost their right to vote in the Democratic or Republican primary. That’s wrong.”

According to voter enrollment data from the New York State Board of Elections, more than 3 million voters are registered outside of the Republican and Democratic parties, barring them from voting in the state’s closed primary.

“You’re paying for this election. It’s administered by the state,” Sanders told the supporter. “You have a right to vote. And that’s a very unfortunate thing, which I hope will change in the future. Thanks so much for your support.”

A group of New Yorkers filed suit Monday asking for an emergency declaratory judgment to open New York’s primary up to all registered voters in the state. Some voters allege that their party affiliations were unknowingly altered, preventing them from casting their ballots Tuesday.

Hillary Clinton: “If I’m President, We Will Attack Iran… We would be Able to Totally Obliterate Them.”

 

 

 

In-depth Report: IRAN: THE NEXT WAR

By Stephen Lederman

Note: This piece which is of extreme relevance to the US election campaign was originally published in July 2015.

On July 3, 2015, presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton addressed a hand-picked audience at a Dartmouth College campaign event. She lied calling Iran an “existential threat to Israel… I hope we are able to get a deal next week that puts a lid on (its) nuclear weapons program.”

Even if we do get such a deal, we will still have major problems from Iran. They are the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism.

They use proxies like Hezbollah to sow discord and create insurgencies to destabilize governments. They are taking more and more control of a number of nations in the region and they pose an existential threat to Israel.

We…have to turn our attention to working with our partners to try to reign in and prevent this continuing Iranian aggressiveness.

Fact: US and Israeli intelligence both say Iran’s nuclear program has no military component. No evidence whatever suggests Tehran wants one. Plenty indicates otherwise.

As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC’s annual convention saying:

The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests….shared ideals….common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security.

(O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat” against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense.

I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas’ campaign of terror.

No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents.

Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas’ charter “calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel.”

“I support calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard what it is: a terrorist organization. It is imperative that we get both tough and smart about dealing with Iran before it is too late.”

She backs “massive retaliation” if Iran attacks Israel, saying at the time:

“I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”

She endorses using cluster bombs, toxic agents and nuclear weapons in US war theaters. She calls them deterrents that “keep the peace.” She was one of only six Democrat senators opposed to blocking deployment of untested missile defense systems – first-strike weapons entirely for offense.

WHY AMERICA IS BURIED IN THE MUD? Top 7 Hillary and Obama Foreign Policy Failures

SAN_foreignpolicy_FBexturl

America needs leaders who will help keep our country secure. President Obama and Hillary Clinton have proven time and again that their misguided foreign policy efforts do far more harm than good. We have compiled seven of the top ways that Clinton and Obama’s policies have failed the American people and left our country vulnerable:

1. Supporting the Iran deal

Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton support a nuclear deal with Iran that endangers America and our allies around the world. Even though Iran has called for “Death to America,” Obama and Hillary seem unconcerned. They have both publicly backed the deal, despite major concessions that would allow Iran to develop their nuclear program.

2. Negotiating with Terrorists

When it comes to terrorist groups, President Obama and Hillary Clinton have both shown that they are more than willing to negotiate. Obama has shown time and again that negotiating with terrorists is no problem for him, on everything from Bergdahl and the Iran deal. Hillary’s foreign policy is guided by the outlook that we should be dealing with groups like ISIS by “trying to understand and empathize with their perspective.” How’s that working out, Hillary?

3. Allied with the Muslim Brotherhood

Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton reached out to the Muslim Brotherhood in an effort to to create a new ally, one who is now labeled a terrorist organization. The Muslim Brotherhood was a violent Islamic Regime that actively supported terrorism and spread chaos around the Middle East. Hillary and Obama have both had many meetings with these violent thugs and Clinton even hired a senior member to the Clinton Foundation. He was later arrested for and charged with inciting violence.

4. Failed to Curb Russian Aggression

Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton sought to appease Russia, which only lead Russia to act more boldly. Between the “Russian Reset” and President Obama telling Vladimir Putin on a hot mike that he could have more flexibility about removing the missile shield that protects millions lives after an election, it is clear that we need a leader who will stand up to Russian aggression.

 

5. Lied About Benghazi

Despite knowing the truth within hours of the attack, Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration continued to blame a YouTube video for the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. In the years since the Benghazi attack, both Hillary and Obama have continued to mislead the American people about the details of the attack. When questioned about the events leading up to the Benghazi attack, Hillary shot back, “What difference does it make?

 

6. Contributed to Yemen’s Failure

Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton supported actions that lead to the fall of Yemen, and both praised the success that was the Yemeni state. Now the country is overrun with terrorists supported by the Iranian government whose motto reads, “God is Great, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse on the Jews, Victory to Islam.”

 

7. Disrespect our Allies in Israel

Obama and Clinton have both repeatedly shown complete disregard for maintaining a strong relationship with Israel. When Prime Minister Netanyahu visited Congress, President Obama refused to meet with Bibi. In 2010, Obama snubbed Netanyahu, forcing him to come in through the back door of the White House, then leaving during the middle of their meeting. Hillary Clinton has bragged about her years the State Department’s “designated yeller,” including an incident where she spent 45 minutes berating Netanyahu over the phone.

 

It is clear that these “leaders” are not helping keep our country secure. Donate?  If some one should donate are the two ignorant laughing about the terrorist attack in Benghazy. Mrs Clinton can donate a few million dollars to her country if she loves it soooooooooooooo  much!
