The Sanders campaign named Cornel West, and 4 others to the Democratic party 2016 platform committee. But platform promises to Democratic voters have always been worthless. Bill Clinton’s 1992 platform promised inner city job programs, reinvestment of military spending and much else. Obama’s 2008 platform pledged relief to homeowners in the foreclosure crisis and more.

(see as merely one example of many of the “tabloid media hyping climate doom” prognostications, Climate Change Threatens the Survival of Coral Reefs).

Hillary Clinton lying for 13 minutes straight.

Concerned American Dad

Presented without comment……..see for yourself…

It is still shocking to me that anyone can actually throw their support toward this shill but then again how can you blame them for being so clueless if they are getting their information from the boob-tube and the rest of the presstitutes in the mainstream media.

Is it possible that there are so many that are so ignorant?
