Igniting the youth of America: Can you #FeeltheBern Heating Up?
This #PlantYourDreamBlog is a sister to the Curezone piece that was originally published after attending the San Diego Rally for @SenSanders March 21, 2016. That blog is here: I am becoming increasingly involved in the campaign.
The Gloves are Off. The Corporate Media and Clinton Campaign are going after Bernie Sanders
The Corporate Owned Media will be going after Bernie Sanders more than ever. The incident of April 6, 2016, where he was interviewed by the New York Daily News aimed to provide ammunition to further disqualify him in the minds of voters.
@HillaryClinton offensive began April 6 and one of her first conversations was about who is best qualified to be president.
Why was Wisconsin, that Voted April 5, so Important?
The winner of the primary in Wisconsin has gone on to become the party’s nominee in nearly 94 percent of past elections. The state has been described as the “best in the nations at picking presidential nominees.”
Americans, who polls say are overwhelmingly sick of the political status quo, are clearly excited about the prospect of a Sanders presidency.
An ABC exit poll found that two times more Democratic voters said they are excited about what Sanders would do in office than said the same about Clinton.
My Conclusion! Hillary is Qualified to Run the Government we have Now and Not Qualified to Run the Government We Need.
I like this from Rudy Sovinee:
“Most people are not differentiating between qualified to run the government we have now vs the government we need. All the discussion of excessive influence by money and corporations – she fits well in that system, and I see it as at direct odds with any chance of avoiding environmental collapse with massive human population contraction.
Hillary is not qualified for the government we need. She is too linked to the wealthy and the corporations to ever call for or do what must be done to mitigate the disasters ahead. This is the situation we are fully aware of now, more so than in 2008 when we were midst a financial meltdown.”
HERE IS MY TAKE
Igniting the youth of America: Can you #FeeltheBern?
The myth of America! Youth and Innocent at Heart are rising up to donate to #feeltheBern, and Volunteer in all ways including phoning. The Corporate Media will be do all they can more fervently now to defeat Sanders. It is for the Youth to educate through the Internet.

WASHINGTON POST STORY
Here is the story from the New York Daily News
Raising the Issue of Is he Qualified? April 6, 2016
Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton on Wednesday questioned whether her rival in the Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), is qualified to be president.
“I think he hadn’t done his homework and he’d been talking for more than a year about doing things that he obviously hadn’t really studied or understood,” Clinton said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” just one day after losing the Wisconsin primary to Sanders, “and that does raise a lot of questions.”

@SenSanders fights back:
Did Bernie Sanders Botch An Interview With The Daily News? It’s Not That Simple.– 04/06/2016 12:36 am ET | Updated 1 day ago
Washington bureau chief for The Huffington Post
“This wasn’t an interview about policy details. It was about who the media has decided is presidential and who isn’t, who is serious and who isn’t. The Daily News and much of the rest of the media don’t think Sanders is qualified to be president, and that’s the motivation for an interview meant to expose what the media have already decided is true.” —
At a news conference in Philadelphia April 7, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) defended his decision to say Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton isn’t qualified to be president. He said, “If I’m going to be attacked for being ‘unqualified,’ I will respond in kind.'” – http://wapo.st/1SftKkf

THE TRANSCRIPT FROM THE DAILY NEWS INTERVIEW
Pieces from this interview was used out of context to make Bernie Sanders look bad.
FROM MODERATES FOR BERNIE
BERNIE’S WISCONSIN WIN PUTS HIM ON TRACK TO WIN THE NOMINATION
We are witnessing history in the making. Bernie’s epic comeback in the second half of the Democratic nomination race is unprecedented—and the stuff of legends. Here are a few facts about Bernie’s dominant Wisconsin win tonight:
1. No presidential candidate has ever won 6+ nominating contests in a row – as Bernie just did – and gone on to lose the nomination. Let that sink in for a moment. If you also include Arizona (where Bernie actually won the election-day vote), Bernie won all 8 of the votes since March 15th.
2. Excluding the 4 virtual ties (within 1 delegate or 1% of the vote), Bernie has won more states than Hillary: 16 to her 13. Outside the South, Bernie won 16, virtually tied 4, and only lost 2. In short, Hillary dominates the South whereas Bernie dominates everywhere else.
3. Bernie is on track to win the nomination. Bernie needed 58% of all second-half delegates to beat Hillary. As of the most recent count, he has a commanding 64% of second-half delegates. He needs under 57% of all remaining delegates to win the pledged delegate race.
4. Bernie eliminated one third of Hillary’s delegate lead over the past two weeks. Imagine what he’ll do over the next two months.
Yet again, corporate media is downplaying the significance of tonight’s victory. (By this point, we shouldn’t be surprised by corporate media’s almost comical bias.) But make no mistake, these results are game changing enough to propel Bernie to the nomination. Tonight’s victory sets Bernie up well for Wyoming next week and New York in 2 weeks; whoever wins New York will unequivocally be the frontrunner. Let’s make sure that happens; everything and everyone makes a difference:

It’s only fitting that an extraordinary president should enter office in extraordinary fashion. And this certainly is an election for the ages. Historians will describe how the legendary Bernie Sanders offered America a once-in-a-lifetime choice between revolution and status quo. To move forward or to move backward. To make history or to be history. And those same historians will record that the American people joined each other and responded emphatically with one voice:
Let’s make history together.
