Hillary “Feels the Bern” – Record Numbers of MoveOn.org Members Vote to Endorse Sanders by Massive Margin

The recent member vote conducted by progressive organization MoveOn.org is downright devastating for Hillary Clinton. The numbers speak for themselves, and demonstrate in no uncertain terms that Hillary Clinton has absolutely zero grassroots support. There isn’t a person in this country who is genuinely excited about Hillary, while Bernie Sanders continues to pack rooms and, as we learned in December, broke the fundraising record for most contributions at this stage in a political campaign at 2.3 million.

The fact that Hillary is still seen as the inevitable nominee simply proves how completely lifeless and corrupt the Democratic establishment is. But don’t take my word for it.

From MoveOn:

More than 340,000 MoveOn members participated in our endorsement process. Sanders won with 267,750 votes, or 78.6 percent. “Fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton garnered 49,811 votes (14.6 percent). Martin O’Malley earned 2,949 votes (0.9 percent). There were also 20,155 MoveOn members, or 5.9 percent, who voted against MoveOn making an endorsement now.

Bernie’s vote total and percentage are MoveOn records — the best any presidential candidate has performed in our 17-year history.

Finally, MoveOn is endorsing Bernie for president because MoveOn is our members. MoveOn only endorses candidates for office after formal membership votes, and in this case, the outcome of our internal democratic process was overwhelming: the vast majority of voting MoveOn members want the organization to support Bernie, so that’s what we’re going to do. We’ve pledged to run a 100% positive campaign.

 What an unbelievable embarrassment for Hillary Clinton, but one that nevertheless makes total sense. For example, in yesterday’s post titled, Who’s the Real Progressive? A Side by Side Comparison of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton’s Lifetime Donors, I highlighted the following damning career donor charts (Hillary on the left, Bernie on the right).

      Microsoft wants a dominating say in Iowa?
      Iowa caucuses go high-tech
      But now both parties will use a Microsoft smartphone or tablet app to report the results from each precinct caucus back to the state party on election night. In addition, the Democrats will host a tele-caucus for Iowa residents who are out of the country, allowing them to vote via a conference call system.

      In the past, both parties in Iowa have reported individual precinct results via phone, with an automated dial-in system to punch in the vote counts. The Microsoft platform is replacing that process with separate apps for Republicans and Democrats to input their results digitally and
      another app for each party’s headquarters to receive those figures and validate the results. The parties can also program their apps to catch potential anomalies or reporting errors. Once the precinct figures are approved by the state party, they’ll be posted online in real time for the public to follow. Kaufman says the state GOP has already held more than 200 training sessions with precinct chairs to go over the new system.

      Microsoft isn’t charging the parties of the state for the technology. “We’re providing this to the parties because we think it’s an important process the U.S. election process and our democracy,” Stan Freck, the company’s senior director of Campaign Technology Services, told reporters.

      Another Presidential Election Year Featuring Unverified and/or Unverifiable E-Voting Begins: ‘BradCast’ 1/7/2016
      GUEST: Election integrity watchdog Bev Harris of BlackBoxVoting.org…
      By Brad Friedman on 1/7/2016, 5:49pm PT

      Last year ended with a number of voter database breaches — from the Sanders/Clinton/DNC database kerfuffle to the discovery of the still-mysterious posting of some 191 million voter records online shortly thereafter.

      But those concerns may pale in comparison to the fact that the nation is about to begin voting in Presidential primaries and caucuses using electronic voting systems and tabulators that have failed time and again, that remain vulnerable to both malfunction and malfeasance, and that are often impossible for the public to oversee in any meaningful way.

      On today’s BradCast: Welcome to Presidential Election 2016! Good luck! (We’re gonna need it.)

      Joining us to discuss the voter database breaches as well as concerns about election integrity and oversight in early caucus and primary states such as Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and beyond is Bev Harris of BlackBoxVoting.org.

      Harris, the election integrity watchdog featured in HBO’s Emmy-nominated 2006 documentary Hacking Democracy, has been investigating and writing about those voter database breaches lately, including a new one that has just been discovered concerning tens of millions of additional voter records.

      While voter registration databases actually contain public information, she explains, there are restrictions on their use, and they are not supposed to simply be posted publicly for download. “This stuff is not secure. It’ll probably never be secure,” she warns. “One of the things I did was really research how many of the breaches have occurred over time, and it’s a shocking number. You can’t secure this stuff.” As we discuss on today’s program, that point is something to keep in mind when you hear advocates of Internet Voting systems (the next nightmare that some hope to force upon American democracy) claim otherwise.

      We then step through the differing voting processes used in each of the early voting states, with Harris explaining that completely unverified and/or unverifiable e-voting and tabulation systems — most of them hacked many times in the past — will once again be in use in every state in the union. Yes, even where hand-marked paper ballots are used, almost all of those ballots are tabulated by unverified computer systems.

      “I’m not at war with a machine,” she explains. “I’m at war with no transparency. We have to be able to have some way to see and authenticate that count, before the ballots travel anywhere.”

      Harris tells me: “The key here is not that there will never be a mistake, or never be fraud. The key is that the public has a right to accountability. If you can catch it, and do something about it — if
      you’re vigilant enough and doing a patriotic duty of vigilance — then that’s the whole point. When you start saying, ‘No, you can never see, you can never account for it,’ then you have a problem.”

      We discuss how it was, in fact, public oversight of hand-counted paper ballots at GOP caucus sites in Iowa in 2012 which resulted in the correct results actually becoming known weeks later, long after the Republican Party misreported them on the night of the caucuses.

      Transparency, however, is not quite as easy in other early voting states like New Hampshire (remember the unbelievably unverified mess there in 2008, when Hillary Clinton’s victory defied even Exit Polls taken on the day of the Primary?) and, especially, South Carolina (remember the unknown Alvin Greene’s 100% unverifiable and inexplicable victory in their 2010 Democratic U.S. Senate primary?)

      “There’s not just one magic wand you can wave, but there are things to at least force some accountability into it,” Harris tells me, describing some of the ways election integrity advocates can try to force the issue a bit. Among her suggestions: “You can go [to the polling place at closing time] and snap a picture of what those [computer tabulated] results are with your cell phone and compare it with, at least, what they report” later on.

        Get ready Bernie supporters.

        Please pass along to all Bernie Sanders supporters in order to problem solve before Iowa. Bernie supporters get ready to record the votes at the end of the day to compare with what is officially reported. Then…. And, always demand evidence of open hand counts or hand counted paper ballots posted in precinct on caucus, primary and general election night, not taken elsewhere to be counted and so breaking the chain of custody.


        My Prediction: Bernie Sanders Will Win the White House

        In comments:
        Bernie (Democratic Party) and the Green Party (all Parties) will have to protect the integrity of Primary Election Vote counting so they can then protect the integrity of the General Election Vote counting from the right-wing owned, operated electronic voting/scanning/tabulating machines. We all must advocate for hand-counted paper ballots posted in precinct on election night.

        Still Evil after All These Years: The Franklin Scandal and Pedophilia in High Places
        By Charles M. Young Posted by Dave Lindorff

        The Omaha World-Herald was the foremost local cheerleader for persecuting teenagers instead of investigating their claims. One of its own columnists, Peter Citron, had a long history of arrests for pedophilia and child porn and was implicated by two witnesses at Larry King’s sex parties. The long-time publisher of the World-Herald, Harold Anderson, was a big supporter of Larry King and had raised money for the Franklin. During the 18 years that King presided over the Franklin, the newspaper never noticed that King was living a hugely expensive lifestyle when he was supposedly making $17,000 a year in salary. The World-Herald Company is co-owner of Election Software and Systems, which counts half the election ballots in the United States.

        Americans have plenty of obvious reasons to hate the rich and powerful. Wars for oil, rampant pollution, the destruction of individual rights, the constant lying about everything. It’s all on the front page, and it’s like old furniture in the living room. It’s hard for most people to notice. Boutique evil of the Gerry Sandusky sort affects fewer victims, but is more easily understood once the initial denial breaks down. If the denial of the Franklin Credit Union scandal ever breaks down, the consequences will reverberate far higher than happened at Penn State. Except for all those who died in suspicious accidents and suicides, the witnesses are still out there. Some might even talk about it. They talked to Nick Bryant.

        THE FRANKLIN SCANDAL: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse & Betrayal
        by Nick Bryant

        The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of political powerbrokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators attempted to expose the network in 1989 and 1990, but the legislators’ efforts were followed by a rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering responses of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI and Justice Department, which effected an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network. The publisher is donating 50% of the book’s proceeds to organizations that assist abused children.

        Follow an honest election mathematical statistician: Richard Charnin

        I have written two books on election fraud which prove that the recorded vote is always different from the True Vote. Unlike the misinformation spread in the media, voting machine “glitches” are not due to machine failures. It’s the fault of the humans who program them.

        In the 1968-2012 Presidential elections, the Republicans won the average recorded vote by 48.7-45.8%. The 1968-2012 Recursive National True Vote Model indicates the Democrats won the True Vote by 49.6-45.0% – a 7.5% margin discrepancy.

        In the 1988-2008 elections, the Democrats won the unadjusted state exit poll aggregate by 52-42% – but won the recorded vote by just 48-46%, an 8% margin discrepancy. The state exit poll margin of error was exceeded in 126 of 274 state presidential elections from 1988-2008. The probability of the occurrence is ZERO. Only 14 (5%) would be expected to exceed the MoE at the 95% confidence level. Of the 126 which exceeded the MoE, 123 red-shifted to the Republican. The probability P of that anomaly is ABSOLUTE ZERO (5E-106). That is scientific notation for

        P= .000000000 000000000 000000000
        000000000 000000000 000000000 000000000 000000000 000000000 000000000 000005.

        The proof is in the 1988-2008 Unadjusted State Exit Polls Statistical Reference. Not one political scientist, pollster, statistician, mathematician or media pundit has ever rebutted the data or the calculation itself. They have chosen not to discuss the topic. And who can
        blame them? Job security is everything.

        Election forecasters, academics, political scientists and main stream media pundits never discuss or analyze the statistical evidence that proves election fraud is systemic – beyond a reasonable doubt. This site contains a compilation of presidential, congressional and senate election analyses based on pre-election polls, unadjusted exit polls and associated True Vote Models. Those who never discuss or analyze Election Fraud should focus on the
        factual statistical data and run the models. If anyone wants to refute the analytical evidence, they are encouraged to do so in a response. Election forecasters, academics and political scientists are welcome to peer review the content.

        The bedrock of the evidence derives from this undisputed fact: Final national and state exit polls are always forced to match the recorded vote – even if doing so requires an impossible turnout of prior election voters and implausible vote shares. All demographic categories are adjusted to conform to the recorded vote. To use these forced final exit
        polls as the basis for election research is unscientific and irresponsible. The research is based on the bogus premise that the recorded vote is sacrosanct and represents how people actually voted. Nothing can be further from the truth.

        It is often stated that exit polls were very accurate in elections prior to 2004 but have deviated sharply from the recorded vote since. That is a misconception. The UNADJUSTED exit polls have ALWAYS been accurate and closely matched the True Vote in 1988-2008. A comparison of ADJUSTED, PUBLISHED exit polls in elections prior to 2004 and PRELIMINARY exit polls since then is like comparing apples to oranges. The adjusted, published exit polls have always exactly matched the fraudulent RECORDED vote because they have been forced to do so. That’s why they APPEAR to have been accurate. The RECORDED vote has deviated from the TRUE VOTE in EVERY election since 1968 –always favoring the Republicans. (and/or as Lynn Landes says favoring the most conservative in each party)

        The Census Bureau indicates that since 1968 approximately 80 million more votes were cast than recorded. And these were just the uncounted votes. What about the votes switched on unverifiable voting machines and central tabulators? But vote miscounts are only part of the story. The True Vote analysis does not include the millions of potential voters who were illegally disenfranchised and never got to vote.

        We need to get rid of those abusive machine owners/reporters electing themselves. Bernie supporters get ready to record the votes at the end of the day. And, always demand evidence of open hand counts or hand counted paper ballots posted in precinct on election night, not taken elsewhere to be counted and so breaking the chain of custody.

        Bernie – The new Comic Book Bio
        It can cure Stupid

        A personal note from Greg Palast

        Love Bernie. Hate Bernie. Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn. I’m violently non-partisan by profession and nature. But, I demand you read Ted Rall’s comic book biography of Bernie Sanders.

        It’s not some propaganda crap-ola to promote Sanders’ Presidential campaign. You don’t get a lot of stuff that makes you feel warm and fuzzy about the candidate. Rather, what you get is, “The Making of a Guy Pissed-off with the Way the System is Stacked Against the Average Joe.”

        Rall’s Sanders was not the intellectual child of Karl Marx. Rather, he was the child of Eli Sanders, a low-ticket salesman whose commissions barely covered the rent on a one-bedroom flat in Brooklyn – except when they didn’t cover it and Sanders’ parents would fight.
        * * * *

        Get a signed copy of Ted Rall’s Bernie, the brilliant 200 page full-color comic-book biography by making a tax-deductible donation of at least $100 to the Palast Investigative Fund.

        Or order Bernie on Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Indiebound.

        Rall, a Journalism Fellow of The Palast Investigative Fund, is also the penman-author of Snowden, and, with Greg Palast, the New York Times bestseller Billionaires & Ballot Bandits.

        For a tax-deductible donation of $200 you can get the signed Palast & Rall Book Trio.

        Bernie is also a quick primer on “Pot-hole Socialism.” For example, as Mayor of Burlington, Sanders brought a minor league ball team to town, built affordable housing, balanced the budget and took care of business. Bernie was a government executive even Paul Ryan could love (if Ryan weren’t a sick, duplicitous shill for billionaires.)

        Ted Rall is an ornery cuss, so he has lots of gripes about some of Sen. Sanders’ votes and views – and the book is the better for it.

        The book’s opening is a particularly enjoyable I-didn’t-know-that history of the Democratic Party’s “moonwalk,” sliding right while pretending to defend progressive views. It’s the betrayal that created Bernie’s movement, not just his political moment.

        With Bernie, Rall does the job that used to belong to news reporters –illuminate the soul of a candidate. And, most importantly, he puts Progressivism back into the story of American history.

        Given that our media covers little more than pollster yammering and Trump’s hairdo versus Hillary’s, Rall’s book comes as a welcome cure for stupid.

        I am turning The Best Democracy Money Can Buy into a feature length film about the billionaires and ballot bandits and their plans to steal the 2016 election. Watch the Trailer.

        Be our mogul angel. Donate at least $1,000 to the Palast Investigative Fund and you’ll get a Producer credit and tickets to our Hollywood opening.

        Or donate $500 for a Co-Producer credit. You can save America while getting a tax deduction.

        Or support our work by making a tax-deductible No Gift donation.

        No matter how small or ginormous, it’s all immensely appreciated!

        The filming is nearly complete – but editing the good stuff from the secret camera hidden in my hat (no kidding)—and adding the way-cool graphics to illuminate those confidential documents that you’re not supposed to see—that takes some cash. So I’m asking you for your direct support so we can get this exposé on the air in 2016—and bust the vote
        thieves before they commit the crime.

        How could I forget. Microsoft doesn’t have to (won’t) control its software backdoors to the NSA, CIA. So, let me guess. Bushs are CIA. I suspect Obama and the Clintons are CIA. So that we will have an election with another Bush and Clinton…if we are not prepared. Let’s see if Bev Harris, Brad Friedman, Cliff Arnebeck, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Greg Palast, Richard Charnin, the FreePress, Jonathan Simon, Mark Crispin Miller, Lynn Landes and many others will weight in on this to arrive at more solutions to help Bernie Sanders, probably not CIA, and allow voters true votes to prevail as if we were a real Democracy, which perhaps, we can be again. Calling all Election Integrity organizations, reporters, authors, professors, statisticians, all.

        • Bev

          Could you or someone do a Freedom of Information Act request to
          determine if Clinton is CIA? We all know that the Bushs are. If so, then
          this Microsoft “free” offer would be equivalent to the CIA selecting the
          CIA, approved by the Democratic party and Republican party. What would Bernie supporters say? Or, Green voters, or independent voters say?

          • Bev

            Is Trump CIA? Freedom of Information Act needed in order to know. What would his supporters think about that?

  • wunsacon

    How can MoveOn promise to run a “100% positive campaign”? I don’t suggest they use unfair smears. But, if you want to explain why Bernie is better than Hillary, I can’t imagine not talking about her “neo”-con foreign policy of mass murder.

    A 12-Step Program to Save US Democracy
    By Mark Crispin Miller

    Certainly the outlook for democracy seems pretty bleak—and how could it be otherwise? The surest way to make a problem worse is to pretend it isn’t there, which is exactly what our press and politicians have been doing; and the rest is, unfortunately, history.

    But history can be changed, as We the People have continually learned, from our refusal of colonial subjection, to our (partial) establishment as a democratic republic, to the abolition of slavery, to the
    enfranchisement of women, to the end of formal segregation and the passage of the Voting Rights Act.

    After that, our progress seemed to stop, and it must now resume: for history can be changed, and for the better, but only through our own unbreakable commitment to, and action for, enlightened policies for the
    renewal of our democracy. Based squarely on America’s first principles, such policies would not be wholly new, however revolutionary they must sound in these bad, backward times. As it was certain policies that got us into this horrific situation, certain other policies can get us out.

    The fact is that We the People are in lousy shape, and must get straight as soon as possible. For we are all addicted to the horse race—and we can’t win, because it’s fixed. And so, before we end up losing
    everything, we need to pull ourselves together, face the music, and then take all necessary steps to change the tune.

    A 12-Step Program to Save US Democracy

    1. Repeal the Help America Vote Act (HAVA).
    This step will inevitably follow an in-depth investigation of how HAVA came to be.

    (My note: Convicted Criminal Jack Abramoff was the lobbyist for HAVA to control politicians with blackmail and control/steal elections with evidence stripping e-voting, e-scanning, e-tabulating machines:

    AIPAC and Abramoff Operated Child Sex Blackmail Ring
    Posted by Stew Webb on February 2, 2014

    Out of the DC Hilton, Ritz Carlton, Sheraton Hotels, Little Boys and Girls for Military and Defense Contracts, Congressman, Senators, Media and others Blackmailed
    By Stew Webb Federal Whistleblower-Activist

    This is a story of the U.S. Shadow Government tied to Organized Crime, Foreign intelligence, current and retired FBI Trolls and stooges and how they have Blackmailed, Imprisoned, Murdered, defamed and tried to destroyed their reputations, those who have exposed their crimes or got in their way.

    U.S. senators and congressmen are covering up the Dusty Foggo government lobbyist and military prostitution and pedophilia ring in Washington involving legislators, news reporters, military officers and high government officials. Alberto Gonzales and President Bush fired San Diego U.S. Attorney Carol Lam because she was probing the Dusty Foggo / Jack Abramoff D.C. sex ring.

    Is child sex and prostitution in exchange for defense contracts and votes for war too explosive for the American people to hear?

    According to a long-time senior intelligence agent the Washington, DC Hilton, Ritz Carlton and Sheraton Hotels were used for compromising House and Senate members, National Media hosts who had sex with children in a legislative and media Blackmail ring.
    Save kids and democracy, get rid of HAVA. A current effort to save kids and democracy:
    Sibel Edmonds Whistleblower: Powerful Congressman Hastert’s Corruption Goes FAR Beyond Sex With a Student
    The People’s Campaign: The Real Hastert Case- All in One Place

    I’m panning a bold and fairly preposterous project to counter the outrageously preposterous establishment media. I’m working around the clock on a new unique media platform- a big one; big in terms of resources, reach, capabilities … It’s a massive media project funded by the people, big and strong enough to challenge & counter the big MSM….)

    2. Replace all electronic voting with hand-counted paper ballots (HCPB).
    Although politicians and the press dismiss this idea as utopian, the people would support it just as overwhelmingly as national health care, strong environmental measures, US withdrawal from Iraq, and other sane ideas.

    3. Get rid of computerized voter rolls.
    It isn’t just the e-voting machines that are obstructing our self-government. According to USA Today, thousands of Americans have had their names mysteriously purged from the electronic databases now used nationwide as records of our registration.

    4. Keep all private vendors out of our elections.
    With their commercial interests, trade secrets and unaccountable proceedings, private companies should have no role in the essential process of republican self-government.

    5. Make it illegal for the TV networks to declare who won before the vote-count is complete.
    Certainly the corporate press will scream about its First Amendment Rights, but they don’t have the right to interfere with our elections. When they declare a winner when we don’t yet even know if the election
    was legitimate, they delegitimize all audits, recounts and even first counts of the vote as the mere desperate measures of “sore losers.”

    6. Set up an exit polling system, publicly supported, to keep the vote-counts honest.
    Only in America are exit poll results not meant to help us gauge the accuracy of the official count. Here they are meant only to allow the media to make its calls.

    7. Get rid of voter registration rules, by allowing every citizen to register, at any post office, on his/her 18th birthday.
    Either we believe in universal suffrage or we don’t.

    8. Ban all state requirements for state-issued ID’s at the polls.
    As the Supreme Court smiles on such Jim Crow devices, we need a law, or Constitutional amendment, to forbid them.

    9. Put all polling places under video surveillance, to spot voter fraud, monitor election personnel, and track the turnout.
    We’re under surveillance everywhere else, so why not?

    10. Have Election Day declared a federal holiday, requiring all employers to allow their workers time to vote.
    No citizens of the United States should ever lose the right to vote because they have to go to work.

    11. Make it illegal for Secretaries of State to co-chair political campaigns (or otherwise assist or favor them).
    Katherine Harris wore both those hats in Florida in 2000, and, four years later, so did Ken Blackwell in Ohio and Jan Brewer in Arizona. Such Republicans should not have been allowed to do it, nor should any

    12. Make election fraud a major felony, with life imprisonment–and disenfranchisement–for all repeat offenders.
    “Three strikes and you’re out” would certainly befit so serious a crime against democracy.

    This comes from Loser Take All: Election Fraud and the Subversion of Democracy, 2000-2008, a new collection of writings by the major Election Integrity people, which IG Publishing will be bringing out in early April.
