There’s a ‘secondary conflict’ brewing in northern Syria that ‘could easily spin out of control’

The U.S. government has failed catastrophically in Syria largely because of it’s unwillingness to support the Kurds fully. They are more interested in appeasing the dictatorship in Turkey than stopping ISIS and bringing peace to Syria:

A power imbalance in Northern Syria could turn into a conflict rivaling the one already raging in the country.

Poll: Both Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Unpopular

This tells you everything you need to know about the two-party system. Democrats finally had a chance to pick an honest, experienced, and inspiring leader who won’t sell out. And instead the party is choosing someone who is crooked to the core. We should not blame the victims–the American people. The system is rigged against  honest and effective government. Look at Congress, they have a 10% approval rating and 90%+ will be reelected in the Fall. It’s all about protecting the 1 percent:

Despite being the front-runner candidates of their respective parties, both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are extraordinarily unpopular heading into their party’s conventions this summer.

According to a recent New York Times/CBS poll, nearly two-thirds — 64% — of registered voters answered “No” when asked if Trump and Clinton are “honest and trustworthy.”

The Government wants to Expand Sweeping Warrant Searches

The government wants to expand the police state under our very noses. And they do it because Congress is unaccountable. We reelect 95% of them every 2 years. Only a few are putting up a fight. We must be vigilant or we won’t have any rights left:

A battle is brewing on Capitol Hill over a seemingly small change to federal hacking powers that critics say will authorize sweeping government surveillance.

Unless Congress moves by December to block the change, judges will be allowed to grant a single warrant for multiple electronic searches in different locations — even when investigators don’t know the physical location of a device.

Democratic Convention Hosted by Republican Donors, Anti-Obamacare Lobbyists

And we keep buying the lie that Democrats are different from Republicans in their obsequious to big business:

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S 2012 platform pledged to “curb the influence of lobbyists and special interests.” But the 2016 convention in Philadelphia will be officially hosted by lobbyists and corporate executives, a number of whom are actively working to undermine progressive policies achieved by President Barack Obama, including health care reform and net neutrality.Some of the members of the 2016 Democratic National Convention Host Committee, whose job is to organize the logistics and events for the convention, are hardly even Democratic Party stalwarts, given that many have donated and raised thousands of dollars for Republican presidential and congressional candidates this cycle.

Why Bernie Sanders Isn’t Really Losing to Hillary Clinton

The more people learn about Bernie Sanders the more we like him. It is true Hillary Clinton has many more pledged delegates and is likely to be the Democratic Party nominee. But that doesn’t mean she is really beating Bernie. Let me explain.

The only reason Hillary Clinton is ahead in the delegate count has to do with her early victories. And those victories have everything to do with name recognition. In fact, 3/4 of the delegate advantage for Hillary come from primaries/caucauses occurring before March 2nd.

As the race has progressed Sanders has gotten only stronger. He lost more contests to Clinton early on (10 to 6). Through most of March Bernie progressed averaging 50% of the vote versus Hillary’s 48.1, winning 8 states versus 6. Since March 23rd Bernie has averaged 51.4% of the vote versus 46.6 for Clinton. And once against Sanders won more states.

That progress might be tempered by the fact that the entire news media has counted out Bernie Sanders. So we can expect that the vote percentage will be affected adversely for contests to come. Nonetheless, the trend is undeniable–As Sanders became better known his vote total improved accordingly. This phenomenon is furthered explained by the fact that Sanders beat or essentially tied Hillary in the first 2 primaries/causes. Since both candidates spent many months in Iowa and New Hampshire the vote total reflected that fact. The media/press has incorrectly has interpreted the success based on those states being largely white. As the theory goes, Sanders doesn’t appeal to African-Americans unlike Clinton. Some might try to dismiss these stats since later states don’t have as many African-Americans. If that were the case then the average for the second period (>3/1/2016 to <3/23/2016) would favor Hillary much  more than it did. Louisiana, Mississippi, and North Carolina have a large number African-American voters. And those primaries did not help Hillary who ended up losing to Sanders, during that time period, by 2 percentage points.

It would be a terrible mistake to deny Bernie Sanders the nomination based on early primary results that favored Clinton simply because she is better known. Clearly Democrats prefer Bernie Sanders to Hillary Clinton.
