The ‘Bernie Commercial’ That Would Have Won The Election (Video)

Sure, Jimmy Dore is a comedian, but this ‘Bernie’ ad right here… right here??? Shiiiid, nothing funny about it. This is sould-stirring stuff! Just wish someone would have culled together footage and presented it like this BEFORE the Democratic Primary election.

Then again, who is to say it would have changed the outcome. Did Democrats and other primary voters who backed Hilary Clinton over Bernie Sanders really evaluate both candidates on the points made for Bernie in the ‘ad’ above? Probably not. They probably thought Hilary was more ‘electable’ no matter what Bernie points were made (or could have been made)… that she could ‘beat’ The Donald.

And we all know how that turned out. Ah well, we still #FeelTheBern

However, we will not waste another I-Told-You-So on the subject. Just watch. This is incredible and so on point!

Politics: A Step-By-Step Breakdown Of How Trump Stole The Election (Video)

And wait… this is NOT a pro-Clinton post either. Keep reading and watch both vids…to the very end!

In short, here are the two major steps detailing how the Trump campaign stole the election: (1) votes that were never counted and (2) interstate cross-check. Greg Palast (you saw our earlier post on here featuring him right?) goes in-depth about the ‘strategery’ in this two-parter. Start above, continue after the jump.

Politics: Greg Palast Speaks On How Voter Suppression Sealed Donald Trump’s Victory (Video)

Wowww… Cross Checking. Damn, they stay scheming, right? Actually, voter suppression is only part of the problem with getting truly fair and open elections. A good chunk of the problem is STORY suppression! Why is this only being talked about on outlets like DemocracyNow and podcasters like Margaret Prescod? Wonder if even they would know to cover such without investigative reporter Greg Palast exposing these political underbelly scum tactics.

If you’re Black, you’re 900% more likely to have your vote disqualified than if you’re White.
Greg Palast

A must watch. The 15 minutes goes by fast. Feel free to watch twice to really get it.

The National Conventions Are Over. The Battle For The U.S. Presidency Truly Begins (Video)

image4

One week after the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Democrats from both near and far set their sites on the City of Brotherly Love for the 2016 Democratic National Convention. National, International and local media converged on the Wells Fargo Center for this star-studded event attended by Hollywood A-listers, civil rights activists, hall of fame athletes and thousands of Democratic supporters.

The culmination of four days of notable keynote speakers kept both delegates and attendees engaged. A host of speakers which led to endorsements for Hillary included one-time presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, Senator Cory Booker, First Lady Michelle Obama, President Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama and many more.

The DNC brought excitement to the city of Philadelphia although it wasn’t met without any drama. Bernie Sanders’ supporters voiced their disapproval of Hillary throughout the week and several arrests were made. One thing is sure: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will battle for the title of the 45th President of the United States and may the best candidate win.

Former ‘Apprentice’ Andrew Dice Clay Speaks On Trump’s Larger-Than-Life Personality (Video)

Andrew Dice Clay was going for that ‘Apprentice’ spot Donald Trump had open on his reality show. But Dice also recalled a time when he bristled up against The Donald.

As a former cast member on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ Andrew Dice Clay recalls an off-camera “tiff” with host Donald Trump after the now-GOP frontrunner stated that he was “more famous” than the show’s contestants. Plus, Dice explains the origin of Trump’s campaign tone.

Politics: Bernie Sanders Rally In South Bronx With Rosario Dawson, Spike Lee And More (Video)

I’m very excited about the fact that I don’t have to vote against someone… that I get to vote for someone… who’s on our side… who marched with Martin Luther King… who can draw a crowd that makes me dizzy with happiness and love and excitement.
Rosario Dawson

Feel that? It’s the Bern! Great lead-off to an hour-strong ‘Bernie Sanders For President’ rally in the South Bronx (New York) by the uber-sexy (yes) actor-activist Rosario Dawson. Spike Lee and other noteworthy folks were on hand. Thousands of fanatic supporters. And the Senator-Who-Would-Be-President, Bernie Sanders.

Coming for those electors, New York. Game on, Hillary. This is it! Press play #FeelTheBern

Kids React To 2016 Presidential Candidate Donald Trump (Video)

“Wait… a small loan of a million dollars?”

Wowwww. Even kids know what a majority of the Republican voting base (so far) doesn’t seem to get: Donald Trump is a rude, mean man with a terrible sense of humor, who is not in his right mind, who would NOT make America great (he’d make it worse)!

Watch. Just watch.

(Oh, there is a kid in there that kind of stands up for Trump. So, um, there’s that.)

Politics: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders For President (Video)

If you lean to the left (e.g. are likely to vote Democrat in the coming 2016 U.S. election), you should be gathering information and forming impressions NOW. Because before you know it, you will have a decision to make. Every person who has ever run for office has understood that, in order to win, she or he must be supported and admired (and hated) by the right people. So, if you’re thinking Hilary Clinton’s the one, I hope you are learning who is for and against her. Alternatively, if you are taking a hard look at Bernie Sanders – “feeling the Bern” as it were – then you should take a look at the clip above. We KNOW you love Hip-Hop and the Culture if you come to this site often. But maybe “Politics As Usual” has soured you on voting (or even caring). I hope you read my VOTE DAMMIT! posts on here (whether you lean left or right). But maybe they don’t fire you up. But this vid… this vid right here… Just play it. Watch Killer Kill From Adamsville, and it will GIVE YOU BACK YOUR FIRE and make you care about the fight again. In a most powerful way, his speech above makes it clear: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders, the next President of the United States!

Now sure, you will make your own decision in that ballot box, but a candidate is known and judged by the company she or he keeps; and the enemies she or he makes. Do your research. Who is in who’s corner? What fights is your candidate picking? I’m not sure I completely #FeelTheBern yet, but the temperature is rising.

Oh, and just in case you are thinking this is just more ‘politicking’ peep after the jump. The whole event, including what Bernie Sanders has to say (and eat).

Stephen Colbert Talks Politics With Bernie Sanders And Walks ‘Silly’ With Lupita Nyong’O (Video)

Y’all done messed up now. Giving Stephen Colbert a ‘bump’ to a bigger media platform – from Comedy Central to CBS – allows him to do what he does, increased by an order of magnitude. Political satire on 10? Nah, on 100! And he’s just getting started. Above: Check him out lampooning the 2016 field of U.S Presidential candidates. “Feel the Bern” (candidate Bernie Sanders) for real. And dare you not to chuckle at the Republican candidates…

…Oh, you already were? Well, this’ll chuck some chuckles into the laugh fest.

Hit the jump for more hilarity; and Colbert spending some silly time with actress Lupita Nyong’O. And by the time all your watching and laughing are done, you will also have a little something to think about. Balancing comedy and commentary: it’s what Colbert does better than most anybody else in the biz.
