Call Us All Confused...Bernard???

Ordinarily, when a presidential campaign suggests that it has an announcement to make, which is so important that supporters have to register and receive a link via text message, just to join in these reindeer games...one could reasonably conclude that the message would invite and inspire.

I know that's what I thought, when Bernie Sanders told me he had something special in store for me last night
.
I have to admit I was even more excited when Bernie closed his equally unusual Sunday night press conference, by whisping his non-existent Snidley Whiplash-esque mustache and told the reporters, "We know who got the most votes... BWWWWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

Of course, HE got the most votes. And, dammit, this pissed off elderly gentleman was no more than 3 seconds away from advising the entire press corps to, "GET OFF MY LAWN"...when Jane grabbed his arm and said, "C'mon inside, Bernie. The Man said not to say anything, just yet".

And then...

The BIG Meeting with the Wicked Shill of The East... Where, Bernie was supposed to lay some serious SHIT on her. You know, like bus' a Killer Mike -style cap in her ass. Get all up in her grill and shit. Go all Ray Rice on a Fool.

But...as has been the case in connection with MANY meetings where the projected outcome saw Mrs. Clinton's balls in a jar on someone's mantelpiece...

A funny thing happened on the way to operating table.

And... Bernie's, post-meeting, hurry up online streamed event ended up, confusing a few, pissing off a SHITLOAD...and leaving the rest of us shaking our heads.

By 5 minutes into the speech, my phone was ringing.

It started out being supporters who wanted to know what was special about a speech the entire world had heard 75 times before.

Then...it got to volunteers, and $27 people, who wanted me to confirm that "working with Secretary Clinton" didn't really mean "working with Secretary Clinton".

And, before I could get those folks off the phone... Four lines on two phones. Had a dozen people screaming, "WHAT THE FUCK, DUDE...HE JUST FUCKED US!!!"...loud enough for Paul Wellstone to hear.

And, we all know that Paul Wellstone is dead...and that money & power murdered him.

So...

After I chilled out about eleventy  thousand, sixty-nine hundred people... I called some people who are, were, or might still be a part of the inner circle. Not necessarily the Keepers of The Royal Secrets... But, definitely residents of the Sanction Sanctorum.

These folks told me what it was, that what Bernie said, actually meant, and why everyone should be WAY JAZZED  about the blistering fucking STANK that had its origin a tad bit beneath The Supreme Leader's dentures.

According to these peeps, "He's got her, just where he wants her".

And, the more I suggested that I found this extremely difficult to believe... The more forceful the protestations became.

I was given hints at campaign shakeups. Changes of authority. A changing of the guard. Massive hammers that would soon come to rest on the back of her campaign neck.

I was reminded of the massive fraud that was never discussed by Bernie, tonight... though it played the starring role, only four evenings ago..

I did however, stop the self-serving commentary, to note what I perceived to be the biggest change between the Bernie of Sunday night and the Bernie of Thursday night... reading off of his first teleprompter.

Sunday Bernie was angry.

Thursday 8:30 Bernie was upset.
Thursday 8:45 Bernie frustrated.
And, by Thursday 9:00, the Bernie who showed up...was DOWNRIGHT AFRAID.

Then, I stated to think...

They killed JFK.
They killed MLK.
They killed RFK.
They killed Paul Wellstone

All leaders of the movement now owned and operated by Bernie Sanders.

And, this time, the People's Champion wasn't just staring down big money, the military-industrial complex, or even the CIA...

He's trying to shit can the Clinton Dynasty for good.

Again...

Is it far fetched, to think that Orlando happened, so that more than the general public could be made to fear?

What WAS said during the Sanders - Clinton meeting...that NO ONE is willing to report?

Has Bernie capitulated? Or, IS THERE a Grand Master Plan that doesn't even need and indictment, to knock it outta the park.

THIS, I will tell you, my Friends.

If YOU BELIEVE that Bernie has been compromised...

If YOU BELIEVE he is about to destroy every ounce of credibility he has earned...

CALL BERNIE'S SENATE OFFICE NOW!

TELL BERNIE NOT TO BE AFRAID.

TELL BERNIE HE CANNOT CRUSH  THE HOPES OF 12,000,000 PEOPLE EITHER BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN OFFERED A DEAL, OR THREATENED WITH EXTINCTION.
TELL BERNIE WE HAVE HIS BACK.

I say this, because I WILL TELL YOU... and I would not have before last night...

THERE ARE STILL THE SAME THREE PATHS TO THE WHITE HOUSE FOR BERNIE...

And, one of them..I am absolutely responsible for creating. And, THAT PLAN, IF ADOPTED... WILL ELECT BERNIE SANDERS.

As of today, only Bernie can stop Bernie.

And if you saw what I saw, and heard what I heard...

Call Bernie's Senate Office, in DC...NOT THE CAMPAIGN OFFICE which is not answering the phone...and TELL BERNIE HE CANNOT GIVE UP,GIVE IN, OR ABANDON 12,000,000 AMERICANS...

NO MATTER WHAT THREATS HAVE BEEN MADE.

  1. I dont see the afraid part. Sorry. But, my husband was part of the confused and disappointed crowd. "Wait what, why isn't he going independent?" That is not the answer. YET! Surely you see that he has to give her all the rope he can. Trust me, I haven't given up. I dont think he has either. 5 1/2 weeks is a long time in politics. Did they not just do what you heard was gonna happen? DWS is out. (she is now a fake head of DNC). I imagine there is more to come. So, yes, call Bernie's office and keep donating money, and organize locally. Its all part of the plan, I think. Guccifer 2.0, Wikileaks. Anyway, he said he would go to the convention and that is it. He will go all gangbusters there because we will be there too. Its a power play long in the making.

    3. People are going to have to get ready to give up on the idea of Bernie being President. He's going to lead our revolution, he's going to help us hold their feet to the fire, but it's going to be the young folks in the districts getting involved that will forge a path. This system is broken. The best Bernie can do now is wield his influence to get as progressive a platform as possible. I expected no more from him tonight than this. I was satisfied, to know that he will still be our leader either way. Then again, if you see my responses to this blog last weekend, I was in despair and mourning. That's over now. There is an FBI investigation. There are lots of lawsuits that will bring truth to this election eventually. Everyone will know it was stolen. But Bernie doesn't have to live in the White House to be our president. We voted. He's in it to stay for us. You're right. 6 weeks is a long time in politics. Meanwhile, there are alligators eating 2 year olds and massacres taking place to distract us from election fraud. Bernie owed us an update, especially after meeting officially with Clinton. He didn't endorse her. He is going to ride it to the convention.

    2. Ok, one more thing. I do think he has her where he wants her, because he has US right behind him. He can go all gangbusters on her at the convention because we are going to be there too. Those people working against him are working against US. We are awake now, and they deny his requests at their political peril. We are onto them like fleas on a dog. In fact, Bernie is doing them a favor by giving them the damn time to get it together. Now, do I think they will make concessions? Yes, do I think they will carry them out if Hillary wins? No. Do I want Hillary to win? No. Theres a longer game afoot in my opinion. But, I take your opinion seriously and I feel the urgency as well. I will follow your advice.

    3. We are the People. We CAN win. BUT, in the past, when we have come close to retaking the country...thyeve beaten us back, every time. Uf we want to be able to say...NOT THIS TIME!!!

    4. I have felt since that meeting with President Obama that Senator Sanders was angry. I think he's holding back for a reason. He's not inexperienced, he's not a novice, he knew they'd railroad him, and he certainly knew he'd be a target. Afraid? No. I can't see that. If Bernie told us outright what I believe he knows, THEY would know it to. No general worth his salt would blab like that. I am an optimist. Always could be worse, and right now, Ill wait and see. This convention is going to be so interesting.

    5. Agree. It is natural for people to feel protective of such a treasure as Bernie Sanders, but they forget he is an old warrior who has survived the snakepit that is Washington for a long time.

  3. Seriously? OK if there is one thing Bernie Sanders is not, it is AFRAID. You think he didn't know the monster he was swinging his proverbial slingshot at? He's been winding it up for 40 years. To me, he's right on point. He's keeping his word, he's looking more professional than ever, he's leading the charge forward, not saying anything new except a little more stress on us getting involved so this 'revolution' can go on after the election. No matter who is elected. He is our leader and will remain so. He is not afraid, not even to die. We're talking about a man who knew what he was going to be sacrificing and had plenty of years to think it through. We're talking about a man who chained himself to a black woman in 1960s, man. All you saw was a little discomfort with the artificial surroundings. No crowd. Small room, bright lights, new suit.

    1. LOL! Indeed. The new suit has got to be the scariest part for our Don Quixote. A guy like this, who has made it to nearly age 75, is not worried about his own life.

      Now, if they threatened his family, that would be another matter.

    2. I thought about that too. His family. Im certsin Jane Sanders understood what could happen. But I don't think it will go that far. The People are hip to that. Besides I firmly believe if they harm him, or his family in any way, there will be riots that make Watts look like a two bit prize fight. We've had enough of that crap.

    1. Well yes he did say that. But, in regard to completely transforming the party. Which we know they wont do. I see it as giving them crumbs right now. There is no unity. He said these same things the whole campaign. He blasted the DNC hard in this speech. I saw no fear, after I watched it again. Now, I am very concerned about what his "role" is going to be, which he vaguely referenced.

    2. Is it possible he meant work with her - but with the possibility of him as the nominee? Think about it. That can be viewed from both directions.

    5. Billy, FWIW I am 100% certain that Bernie has said that he would "work with Secretary Clinton to defeat Donald Trump" AT LEAST once before. I can't remember which speeche(s) or interview(s) that was, but it is like a hot poker etched it in my brain. It might have been the post-CA primary speech.

    6. its one thing to be willing to sacrifice oneself...I saw a few towers fall millions of times on the t.v. the media beats us into submission with it every 9/11 Bernie is a warrior protected by God, but we need to make sure that we also have his back in all ways- He looked like he could handle his own when the animal rights people tried their coup

  7. I thought it was interesting that Bernie laid out all the numbers associated with his campaign: number of votes, number of contributions, number of Phone Bankers, number of canvassers, and for the first time he talked about the states that he tied in rather than just giving them to HC. It almost sounded like an appeal to superdelegates to really see what we've all accomplished clearly for the first time.

    I remember the Bernie of the 8 Hour tax berniebuster. He knew the tax bill would be passed, that Obama wanted it passed, and there was not much he could do about it except to inform the American people for years to come what taxation in the US was really all about. Bernie doesn't care if he's going to win. He is in it for the long haul always.

    I don't know if Bernie is afraid. He seemed uneasy last night and I wish he had smiled for us once.

  8. Bernie is never afraid. He chained himself to black woman for civil rights movement back in his collage year. He chose to be independent lone wolf in the congress n senate because he was true to his convictions. It is absort to think he is afraid to be killed. What he has been doing during this campaigns must be a lot harder that we could imagine physically n mentally. At 75 yrs old, he has unthinkable strength n endurance than many much younger peers could have done. Afraid is not even across his mind.

    1. In chaining himself to a black woman, he stated down the Chicago police... Not Hilary & Bill Clinton. He was 22 years old, no wife. No kiss. Now he's 74 with a family, kids, and grand kids. All of the others mentioned were never, too... until they were murdered.

      The phrase, "I'm looking forward to writing together with Secretary Clinton" is a capitulation... which certainly isn't coming out if a desire to work with Secretary Clinton.

      So..what is it's origin?

  9. I don't know what speech you watched, but I didn't see any fear?? I think he knows that the lawsuits and indictments most likely will not come to fruition in time for the convention or at all and in reality, either Lynch will not indict or Obama will pardon her. I don't see Bernie getting the nomination and haven't since the NY primary, it was over that day, he should have won NY and CA in landslides if not for all the fraud, but that is not what happened. He had a great run and he knows it and he is asking that the young generation that has had his back for the last 4 months, try to take back democracy by getting involved in politics and cleaning out the deadwood!

    2. It's not a matter of him abandoning his quest, the DNC, MSM, Election Boards have done everything in their power to keep him from reaching that goal. I'm not uneducated, I'm just being realistic, which I think his "base" is also beginning to realize that there is a revolution but it is up to the citizens of the US to carry it onward. We hear from you, H.A. Goodman and others that keep predicting an indictment any day now, just be patient, HRC dropping out, etc. but I don't see it happening real soon and like I said, I don't believe Lynch will indict, she's another HRC backer. If it happens,Hallelujah, but the Clinton's are the Teflon dons of politics.

    1. Julie,

      There are things he can & can't say.

      There are shall things YOU DONT SAY.

      YOU DON'T SAY YOU LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH SOMEONE...

      WORKING WITH, BY DEFINITION IMPLIES YOU AGE ABANDONING YOUR EFFORT, in favor of either a joint effort, or, in sorry if the other person's agenda.

      It is a tacit endorsement of the other person.

      This would be why phone lines were blowing up.

      Don't say, I'm going to the convention to blow it up.

      But DONT SAY... IN LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING TOGETHER WITH THE PERSON THAT 90% OF THE AUDIENCE ON THIS SPEECH, SAY THEY WONT VOTE FOR.

      What EXACTLY was the goal of that speech, and WHAT was accomplished?

      It was an absolutely LUDICROUS waste of time, with no conceivable benefit TO THE
      MOVEMENT.

    2. You may be right, however, I think that speech was for the DNC, not THE MOVEMENT. He can't put all of his cards on the table until the convention. He has to play nice especially if, as you say, he is afraid.

      I don't know. I guess known of us do, but I just didn't hear or see the same thing you did in that speech.

  12. As I've gotten older (I'm 66 now) I've come to listen to and trust my intuition more and more. And I have to say that I've been getting a growing and growing sense of unease regarding what lengths Hillary and camp might go to to secure her nomination.

    She doesn't strike me as someone taking her ball home and accepting defeat after working toward this goal above goals for decades. I wouldn't put anything past her or the powerful elites.

    The question in my mind is....Is forewarned forearmed? What might JFK, King, etc. done differently to completely erase that possibility (not just delay it)?

    I have great faith in Bernie and see that he is exactly what's needed to bring our country back to the people. I have great faith that he is brilliant and is not naive as to the depths his opponents will sink.

    My question is this... What will Bernie do next? I don't know but I trust that...like a chess master, he will take his strategy one step at a time to where he feels it needs to go.

    He has amassed a huge groundswell of support for the people's revolution. I say we the people stay the course with him and ACT when he asks us to. I made my first call to a republican Senator today. Cory Gardner. Who voted against expanding background checks and against adding people on the terrorist watch list for weapons purchases in 12/15. I was SO proud of myself for taking such a step....I had never called my congressman before but enough is enough...and if I didn't let Gardner know that I abhorred him putting his interests over the interests (and lives) of the people he represented, then he was no longer qualified to be my representative (I hadn't voted for him in the first place) and that I voted regularly and I would express myself again the next time he came up for re-election.

    Embarrassing to never have taken such a step before but, boy oh boy, was it enabling and empowering! I never contributed to a candidate's campaign before but I've contributed many multiple times to Bernie and the down ballot candidates he supports. I can't canvas (problems walking), care full time for an invalid husband so my outings are limited. I can't phone bank as I start coughing if I talk a lot. So I'm doing what I can, by posting on my FB page (to the chagrin of my non-Bernie friends) and I keep myself informed.

    I also meditate and pray a lot, including Bernie and Jane and all their supporters with my highest and best intentions. I sent out pot cards to his campaign office, showing my gratitude and support.

    If I come across anything else I can do for Bernie and this movement I will do so. I think that, with millions in this movement, we have unparalleled strength in our numbers and our motivation. I just ask you all to ask yourselves....What more can I do to take back America for we the people? And ACT when you get your answer.

    Trying times ahead but I'm visualizing loving light and energy protecting and embracing and moving all of us forward. Thank you.

  14. I didn't see fear. I saw some fatigue. He has been through a grueling year. Not only the demanding schedule, speeches, meetings, travel. Also the emotional toll of having to keep his composure despite all the negativity, campaign fraud, mistreatment by DNC, mistreatment by the press. All those things take a huge toll on a person, and are an enormous energy drain.
    I hope he has time for some rest between now and the convention.
    Final thought: I did not expect any major announcement last evening, so I wasn't disappointed. The major announcement we want to hear is a plan for a third-party run. Of course he can't talk about any such thing as long as he plans to go to the convention and exercise some leverage there. I saw the speech as a way to test out ideas for his convention speech, and he needed an audience which would give him some helpful feedback. Now wold be a good time for all of us to show some form of support so he knows we are firmly with him.

    1. Fatigue doesn't make one suggest that they are looking forward to working with Secretary Clinton... Which was THE ONLY NEW ADDITION to an otherwise reprise of his stump speech.

      So...

      When you add only ONE THING to your stump speech... What was the purpose of your message?

      Delete
    2. Of course he has to say he looks forward to working with the Medusa. Wasn't it you who described the living hell they are likely to make the Convention for him? What did you want him to say - "I am sneaking in there like a Trojan Rabbit to Bern the mutha down?" At the very least, he has to make it sound to them like he is going to be a good boy and play nice in there.

      FTR, that was not the only thing added to the stump speech (I do wish he would refrain from repeating what his audience could recite in our sleep - some of us are poor, and on a metered internet connection, dammit). There was also a call to arms, imploring us all, especially the younguns, to run for office - and offering guidance, to be accessed via a link to the website. I signed up, just for shits and giggles.

      He is right - change has to come from the bottom up. Top-down doesn't do crap - as we witnessed once again, plugging the Hope and Change into the top slot, only to see him obstructed, undermined, corrupted and seduced to The Dark Side.

  15. I recently found your post and have started following it. I read everything I can find no matter who presents it so I can evaluate (with a grain of salt of course) and try to get a bigger picture of this whole mess. What I got out of his message was "don't give up and stay the course no matter what". I honestly believe that he will need to play a very careful game with the Clintonites and like the game of Survivor he needs to outwit, outplay, and outlast in order to win. This means he might have to play the part to get to his end game and we all need to do our part to not give up and stay the course. It's hard to be patient but we must because the only way to win this game is to not show your hand. We need to trust that there is a plan and we need to have faith that when the time is right the details of that plan will be made known to us. If we give up we lose it all. We can't give in to fear. We need to watch, we need to wait and we need to prepare ourselves for the next phase. Bernie needs this time between now and the convention to recoup, refocus and plan and the best way to do that is to make "them" think that we are not a threat.

  16. I must be having trouble with the reply feature on this blog today. When I hit reply, nothing happens. Anyway, Billy, you have stated you never have heard him say he was going to work with Clinton. I have. He said it in every interview after CA where on TV he was asked if he would endorse. He said it in his public statement after meeting with Obama. He said it again last night.

    I understand there is still great hope that Bernie will become nominee. It's not totally impossible. But I don't think that is in his game plan now. Someone referenced that Bernie said 'we can do arithmetic and we know who has the most votes'. That was not an encrypted message. That was a statement, based on public, widely accept facts. Clinton has more votes (of course several states are under lawsuits and still counting votes), so he is saying we have no illusions about her higher number of pledged delegates.

    Keep in mind Bernie's stated goals. To reform the Democratic party. He is pushing his platform on the party that is supposedly representing the people. Everyone who goes to Philly will be a show of power and the will of at least half the ppl who voted in this election. At the point of July 25th, maybe he will somehow become nominee. But we have to think rationally about what we want. Do you want Bernie to be President, sure. But if you can't get that, don't you want the President or your party to represent universal healthcare, raised min wage, environmental protections, break up big banks? If he can get the platform, and lead us from Burlington, keeping his senate seat, watchdogging those bastards and driving new campaigns down the ticket for 2018, this is a long term goal. He'll still be pushing. Clinton may get the WH but oh imagine the race between her and Trump. Imagine the conflict once indictments hit.

    It doesn't take much imagination to know the game and make sense of the steps he's taking and the words he's saying. We need to stop thinking like a cult, stop talking about him as a messiah, stop waiting for a miracle. Look at these comments about 'trust' and 'he has a plan' and 'have faith'. We need to stop speculating and take Bernie at his words, at face value, not some hidden ace up the sleeve, blink 3 times if you need help BS. He, like Obama, is stepping through the process. He has already knocked down obstacles, set precedences. We are going to a contested convention. If Clinton agrees to write in the policies of a progressive Democratic platform AND RUN IN A GENERAL ELECTION on those PROGRESSIVE STANCES then he'll work with that. If she banned fracking, installed GlassSteagall, protected abortion, gay rights, get ppl out of prisons, so many things he said last night. If the party would do that, the nominee must run on those issues. If the party doesn't do that, we'll find a party who will, or make our own. We don't vote till November! Clinton has to earn our votes all the way through that time! Pivot my ASS!

    1. O Ye of little faith. Look, I know he's not the Messiah - he's living the Life of Brian - but the Senator has been witness to this game for a very long time, and there isn't much he hasn't seen, including shady background Illuminati figures and all the wheely-dealy stuff. He is as much a cagey old cadger as he is compassionate and sincere. So yeah, trust him. He is holding the cards close to the chest, burning no bridges, buying time. Of course he has a plan.

      About that "arithmetic" comment - as I recall, he never said "we know who has the most votes," but rather "we are very, very good at arithmetic." If that wasn't a nudge-nudge, wink-wink, I don't know what is.

  17. Billy,
    I have just one question after reading your latest blog post....

    If you started out concerned that Bernie's speech was one of PRE- concession and fear ( like all those that called you did too)... Yet you have connections to some semi-insiders inthe campaign and they tried to reassure you as much as they were able - why are you not more confident after that?

    Why did you jump back into being doubtful and afraid again?

  18. I didn't think he was scared but he seemed angry at the DNC and a little uncomfortable talking into the camera. Work with Sec Clinton... Very soon starting his role to help to defeat Trump... Fighting for most progressive platform at convention - has he conceded without saying it outright? He also hasn't sent an email for donations since June 11. It's confusing and I fear he risks losing his movement if he doesn't clarify soon.

    1. I think it was very clear. It's about US. The Revolution continues. Stay the course. In the meantime, other outside influences may or may not come into play.

      So, I'll stay the course. Viva La Revolution!

  20. If anyone was pants-pooping scared, it was President Obama, while he made the video endorsing the Medusa. Long known for his suave, polished speaking style, for that, he was anything but. Looked and sounded like a kidnap victim with a gun held to his back off-camera.

    1. I thought the same thing. Weirdest speech I've ever seen Obama deliver.

    2. Yeah, I thought he looked pale and the smile did not extend to his eyes. It did not look like his usual relaxed self. Also, as a videographer, when you shoot someone who is slightly above camera level, you are giving them some position of authority and or expertise. When they are filmed looking up into the camera, it comes across more as an appeal. I thought that choice looked kind of odd, as well.

    3. Interesting. You mean, Pres. Obama was filmed looking up into the camera? I'll need to watch it again.

  21. Perhaps one purpose of an otherwise not-really-groundbreaking speech was to get supporters to engage in a method of direct communication that the mainstream media can't jump-cut, subvert, turn the volume down on or otherwise silence. The true value may be seen not in this speech, but in a future one.

  23. My appreciation of Bernie's thursday night speech was quite different from yours. For me, he still had the fire. He was tired ( no fucking wonder) but definitely NOT defeated or demoralized. AFRAID? WHAT? Your expectations must have been moonbound. He told people what to do. Get out there and either become or support progressive candidates. Keep the faith.
    Jeebus, all of a sudden Bernie's a con man or naive, or selling out? Have you forgotten why you were drawn to him in the first place? Bizarre.

  24. Bernie did seem different last night.,The teleprompter didn't help his delivery. He does better with his wad of notes and his off the top of his head delivery.
    As for threats on his life, that has been concern of mine from the start.

  27. Hi Billy et al -- (had 2 break into 2 parts part 1 of 2)

    1) Did anyone notice the background that was fading in and out and moving around like a lava lamp?

    2) Within 2 minutes in, I sensed a lack of energy in the delivery. I was disappointed. Some have interpreted that as fear. Others as fatigue. I simply took it as a throttle on the accelerator. An air brake on a train car that has yet to release.

    3) I heard the part about working with Clinton, but i think most are reading into that with positive intentions, instead of reading into that with a half truth in mind

    4) I heard the part about him ramping up to work against Trump in his own way very soon. THAT had the potential to be a clue that I feel most missed.

    5) The talk left me empty and confused, so I too was floundering with all of this.

    In Bernie I see a highly evolved Mystic, who at their core are a developed combination of all masculine archetypes -- Kings, Lovers, Warriors and Magicians. And NEVER EVER, underestimate the role of the Magician when strategy games are in play. Strategy is a Magicians game.

    My vote was to blow out of the DNC. Leave them void of energy. Hop on the Green Party Train or start a write in Campaign both of which can easily still win even given limitations in a few states. My vote doesn't matter as I'm but an arm chair QB.

    I went to bed last night aggravated. BUT I reminded myself that Bernie is but another behind a mask and I left myself open to the idea that he has a strategy that is out of my view. And then I went to bed with clear had as is required for clarity from another in the darkness and the silence. My downloads come in around dawn. I gave up the 3am thingy a while ago (and not because i didn't love it, but because I couldn't keep feet on ground when I did it!) My download came in this AM, and to my surprise, I could realize a strategy that fits the behavior of a Magician in control of a strategy that few may understand without a looking glass.

    RE Bernie and DNC --If Bernie leaves, as i had advocated for recently, while that leaves a void in the DNC it also leaves them UNMONITORED. It also leaves an energy void that could in fact get filled by an energy master like Bill Clinton and or with a deviant lurker named Joe Biden. Hold your friends close, but hold your enemy closer...and fill the void that others in the black arts can fill if left empty. That is the gist I got. By staying in with the DNC he is the defacto fall back and he's filling space that others could attempt to manipulate if left void. By staying in the DNC it is they who are cock blocked by he and not the reverse. While he takes a hit from some fans, he's viewing the upside of the defensive move as a better net gain. After digesting this with another, we agreed, he may have made a better call than ours.

    RE -- His comments about having historians remember 2016 as the year the revolution started, Angered me. We get one shot at this. We are all being lined up for the slave trade, if not worse. This AM, I had to remind myself of the needs of a Magician to hide his wares. I let that comment go. It was part of stage craft to give those in the DNC and Clinton something to grasp at. He knows better.

    RE -- His comment about working with Hillary. FOLKS, you are wanting to see all with rose colored glasses. Think like attorneys and salesmen who operate in a realm of half truths. Bernie just did that and you all missed it. He never said he'd be working with her amicably. Bernie said there were many things they disagree about (her winning the election) and many things they agree on (she is trying to steal the election via vote fraud). See how that statement can be filled with things you'd love to hear, but things he can not say out loud?

  28. ( part 2 of 2 )
    Re think what he said that sounded like working with HRC/DNC. you can fill everything that struck you odd with half truths that make my point. Just because he doesn't use double talk on his stump speeches, don't think he doesn't know how to use it when needed.

    RE -- His comments about starting an attack on Trump - Fascinating. Simply fascinating. First and foremost, he need not attack trump nor go after him. He has out polled trump since day one. So this is/could only be for DNC tom-foolery. Second, his talking point attacks on trump the rascist and biggot are annoying to me and actually not in line with his own beliefs about unifying people. Those attacks are HRC style attacks. They are small minded, and in fact they are inaccurate. I've been to a Trump rally personally. I've seen his following. Folks -- they are all races and all creeds, believe it or not. Mexicans leaving the rally were the most aggressive yelling at the mexicans protesting the rally. Hillary fans were their with T shirts on and they weren't molested. There were some of Islamic garb there who were not molested by any. I kid you not. If you hated Howard Stern and came to appreciate his art of Shock therapy later, you might have a good angle for assessing Trump. Trump is no sneaky energy master like Stern, but without have been able to make that kind of black and white reversal on a magician in disguise, Trump is a hard magician to gauge. With the racist biggot attacks, Bernie is only playing into a division of people (trump devotees) that he himself doesn't truly stand for. There are other very easy ways to go after Trump fans to encourage those he has gathered to not fear the Bern. Here's my fully intuitive call on this... I think you will see some fancy videos come out soon, via the same folks producing for Jill Stein, or other comparable, that are going to be so subtle you won't follow the logic and you won't see the hand of the Bern in them at all. Keep eyes peeled for this.

    Strategy is a strange game. Keeping ones enemies close requires non-intuitive moves. I think that is what you are seeing. Fear is something that all can get caught by from time to time. Even those who realize there is nothing to fear. It's ones recovery time from such an energetic event that is relevant. If/when fear arises, some folks get paralyzed for days/weeks/months or a lifetime. A good mystic, might only get caught for a few seconds, a few minutes or a few hours. Never more than a day. if it ever lasts more than a day, a good mystic realizes he/she just stepped off the magic trail, and need only find their way back to the wrong turn, because you see, fear to a mystic is but a guide to say you are not on the right place, nothing more. Fear does not represent a concern over personal injury or death as it is to others. Maybe a strange paradigm to digest, but worthy of consideration. Only those who feel they truly control their own destiny suffer from major fear attacks. Once a lack of control is embraced, the pyramid turns upside down.

    There is currently a wicked game of Chess going on with Bank of America, the OCC and the FED in a similar manner, where a desire for close proximity is being maintained via open online dialogue. Bernie has known about this since last fall. I feel Bernie's strategy of staying very, very close to his enemies and allowing them to expose themselves is similar but different to this one. . if you'd like to check it this chess game, check out http://bofa-racketeering-2015.weebly.com/ or http://the-heloc-reset-crisis-unmasked.weebly.com/ or http://naked-bankers-on-parade-2016.weebly.com/ with that later being a comic approach to less major banking issues that requires one to digest less if Federal Banking corruption is not within ones realm at this time.

  29. This post makes me reflect on a dream I had in March, before my state's primary in April.
    I dreamt about Bernie and we were in a room together talking and he told me I should go out and talk to people about our message, that they would listen to me. I looked at him crazy like and told him I didn't think they would, but he insisted.
    Suddenly he was in another room, kind of foggy like and I was in a stadium with people milling all around and there was BLOOD everywhere. Nobody seemed to mind the blood, they just seemed busy and involved in something I wasn't quite sure of. I couldn't stop looking at all the blood, wondering why it wasn't bothering anyone and trying to believe what Bernie was telling me.
    I then looked to Bernie again and he was even further away and foggy, but it felt like he was right next to me. Once again Bernie told me to keep talking to people, they would listen to me.
    -Fade to Black-

  30. Sanders has said time and again he will not run 3rd Party. I'm starting to think some people are filtering out what they don't want to hear, and editing the rest to their liking. Face it, Sanders' run is drawing to a close. There are no miracles here, no scenarios where his fans get to write the script. The conclusion is terribly unfair in some ways, fair in others, but nonetheless it's a conclusion. In his video speech Sanders didn't offer anything newsworthy because there's nothing left to give. This is what happens when the engine's out of steam. I love the guy, he did amazing under the circumstances, but regardless how much many of us may want it otherwise, we don't get to write the end of this story.

  31. Here is the result I received when doing a Bibliomancy reading at facade.com/bibliomancy/ using Judaism as the religion. I find comfort in my results and a continuing pattern of movement, growth & power.

    The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from The Tanach:

    Jeremiah 1: 3 It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, unto the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah the son of Josiah, king of Judah, unto the carrying away of Jerusalem captive in the fifth month.

    Jeremiah 1: 4 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying:

    Jeremiah 1: 5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee; I have appointed thee a prophet unto the nations.

    Jeremiah 1: 6 Then said I: 'Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak; for I am a child.'

    Jeremiah 1: 7 But the LORD said unto me: say not: I am a child; for to whomsoever I shall send thee thou shalt go, and whatsoever I shall command thee thou shalt speak.

    Jeremiah 1: 8 Be not afraid of them; for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.

    Jeremiah 1: 9 Then the LORD put forth His hand, and touched my mouth; and the LORD said unto me: Behold, I have put My words in thy mouth;

    Jeremiah 1: 10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, and to destroy and to overthrow; to build, and to plant.

    Jeremiah 1: 11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying: 'Jeremiah, what seest thou?' And I said: 'I see a rod of an almond-tree.'

    Jeremiah 1: 12 Then said the LORD unto me: 'Thou hast well seen; for I watch over My word to perform it.'

  32. Guys, had a day to think about Bernie's speech when it occurred to me - I think it's mainly to help US stay onboard until the convention. To stop us from splintering.

    Think about it. Now that IT is the presumptive nominee, there's a complete blackout on Bernie. As far as the media and anyone who isn't a supporter (yet), Bernie is gone.

    In order to stay relevant and buy time, he has to keep engaging with us AND the media AND hold out the olive branch to the other camp just far enough to keep them guessing.

    We have over a month of no rallies, no one asking his opinion, no inclusion in the polls; hence, The People's Summit in Chicago, the mystery invite/online message to his followers and so on.

    He's keeping us engaged and doing things that make it newsworthy (7000 people signing up to run for office, etc). Yes, these are all things we need to be doing anyway - but they take on a special importance now because it gets reported.

    That's my take. :)
