Bill Clinton to DNC Chair: Keep Bernie Supporters Out of Power

This video should enlighten people as to where the Democratic Party still stands. They will not allow progressives to prevail. That is why it’s naive to believe that there can be real change within the party. In fact, Bill and Hillary falsely accuse all progressives of being socialists. This proves, once again, the Dems are under total control by big business and Wall St.

Critics of Michelle Wolf WHCD Performance are Being Hypocritical

The Right-wing was predictably up in arms over Michelle Wolf’s torching of the Trump administration Saturday. It led to this hysterical claim:

In fact, I would say that the evidence we already have, the public materials such as emails for example, strongly indicate that Donald Trump is a traitor. However, I don’t even think he understands what he’s done.
