Bernie Sanders pledges to stay in race

Santa Monica, California (CNN)Bernie Sanders isn’t leaving the stage yet.

Sanders channeled his supporters’ defiance when he took the stage shortly before 11 p.m. PT and told them what they wanted to hear: he’s not ready to concede the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton, who secured the delegates she needs on Monday.

“Let me thank you all for being part of a political revolution,” Sanders said as he took the stage. “All of you know that when we began this campaign over a year ago we were considered to be a fringe campaign. Over the last year I think that has changed a little bit.”

“We understand our mission is more than just beating Donald Trump, it is transforming our country,” he said.

    …all cooked from the Iowa coin toss on
    ..Bernie now just shaking down supporters

    “Democratic party’s superdelegate system is all about: “tempering the raging masses.” ”

    Bernie was a shakedown con from the beginning, and Hillary rigged the Dem nominating process.
    She cheated better than he pretended.
    They are both scum.

    • I prefer Bernie, he at least is an honest commie.

        I used to think he was earnest until I heard a radio interview of him here in SoCal a few weeks ago.
        It was an eye opener!
        He’s not even a likable or dottering old fool, he’s you typical angry filthy hippy that has delusions of “making the rich people pay”.
        Not one idea of his was thought out enough to be able to explain to a radio audience.
        Not one.
        He’s just a low rent, Venezuela type kleptocrat.
        Were he to even be elected, I’d get off the grid, go somewhere very remote, and begin preparing for the insurrection.

          but he’s still honest about it.

    The far left would be very pleased to have to have Trump as president for the next term to get their agitation into high gear continuously harrassing him into impotence and deal making thus enabling them to also get greater control of the DemocRat Party apparatus.

    • I hope he is elected.

      Unless Trump strays from the plan by not caving and groveling every time he’s accused of being a big meanie, like every other remotely right-wing politician.

    Both Bernie and Trump have performed a valuable service in showing that the emperors of both parties have no clothes. For that, I am grateful no matter what the outcome.

    “transforming our country”

    I think I have had enough of that line of thinking when it was done 8 years ago.

    • Everywhere you turn, it’s trans this and trans that. It’s almost like they have an agenda.

      • Jabberwokk

        I’m reading the communist manifesto I bought from Chapters and I am understanding quickly what that agenda is.

        I won’t be buying Capitol though. Since evil capitalist publishers have more copies of it then me I’m going to redistribute one to myself in the name of equality and fairness.

    I said right from the start that Burnie was a Plant to make Hillary look sane.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Bernie is a cypher gone rogue. He wants to ensure that his supporters have an opportunity to burn down an American city. Goodbye Philadelphia………
