    I can’t wait for President Obama’s first stump speech for Hillary, I think he’s going to let it all hang out, he’s going after everybody.

    MSNBC…doing a profile documentary on Trump..it is not the personal story of Trump that is responsible for the rise of candidate Donald TRump…it is the resurgence of virulent hatred and racism and bigotry of white folks…fanned and fed by the GOP….

      No doubt their masters have said total trump coverage must be a minimum 50% – They were discussing Trump during the SC result program. Don’t think they discuss the democrats when talking about the GOP results

    If you haven’t seen Hillary’s speech and Jim Clyburn’s introduction, I recommend it. This victory and the campaign clearly grounded in building on the success and program of Pres Obama. Moving tribute to the mothers who have lost children to violence.

        Wow! I can’t believe I was just brought to tears (the names) and inspired by an HRC speech! She really has found her stride this time around. I think she learned a lot from PBO and her time as SOS and maybe some other things we don’t know about. It’s like she’s being herself now, not someone she thinks people want her to be. I bet she had some long talks with PBO.

      Yes, it was a powerful and beautiful speech. She had a glow, and a flow of grace and power of a winner. She touched my heart. I pray that she will keep it up.

      Pastor Moss had a great remark about our POTUS this morning in his sermon.HZ

    MSNBC runs a Bernie ad, then a match.com commercial, then an “Align – 24/7 digestive support” ad. Not sure what the message or the connection is, but there you have it. Think I’ll go watch me some commercial-free PBS soon!

    I am so glad Hillary Clinton won big in South Carolina. The “holier than thou purity progressives,” aided and enabled by the corporate media, always portray themselves as the base of the Democratic Party. Nevada and South Carolina set the record straight as to who constitutes the most dependable base of the Democratic Party.

      And bravo to the voters for coming out, nath! Always a win.

      • February 27, 2016 at 11:27 pm

        Indeed, J’OB! Black folks in my age group are some of the most dependable voters.We remember all the blood, sweat and tears that our ancestors– and our peers, like CongressmanJohn Lewis– expended to make it possible for us to vote. HRC was not my first choice because I wanted our VP Biden to be the next POTUS and build on what he and President Obama accomplished in the past seven years. But HRC is growing on me now that she is no longer running against President Obama.

          The members of the “dependable voter” group you mention are some of the most admirable among all voters! Love seeing and hearing some of the younger black voters talking about how their “grandmothers and mothers” have reminded them to honor and uphold their right to vote, and keep the tradition going. Very heartwarming, and they all play such an important role in our country. And – luckily – so many of ’em are nice patriotic DEMOCRATS! Yes.We.Can.

  20. February 27, 2016 at 10:35 pm

    Super Tuesday in the 2016 presidential election will be on March 1, 2016. This date has been dubbed the SEC Primary, since many of the participating states are represented in the U.S. Southeastern Conference for college athletics (seven southern states).[10][11]

    The participating states include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado (with caucuses), Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota (with caucuses), Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia. Republican caucuses are being held in Alaska and Wyoming.[11][12] One participating territory is American Samoa with its Democratic caucuses.[13]

    Both Republicans and Democrats have a lot of delegates at stake. The Republican candidates can win about half of the 1,237 delegates needed. The two remaining Democrats are after 880 delegates, roughly one-third of those needed to win. The number of delegates from Texas is much greater than the other states: 155 for Republicans and 252 for Democrats.

    This ties into Clinton speech tonight where she mentions Corinthians

    Hunt came to the yellow-walled bakery to enjoy a sweet treat while he studied the Bible, unaware — he said after — that a presidential candidate was about to visit. His quiet reflection was abruptly turned upside down when around 20 press and campaign staff rolled into the bakery with Clinton. “We are heading out of town and we were told to stop by and get some good stuff to take with us,” Clinton said as she walked through the door, flanked by dozens of cupcakes and cakes. After chatting with the bakery’s staff and picking out some cupcakes for the road, the presidential candidate sidled up to Hunt and asked him what he was studying.


    “Corinthians 13,” Hunt said calmly, almost nonplussed by the candidate. “Oh I know it well,” Clinton said. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud,” the passage says. Clinton told Hunt about her religious history and commended him for his continued study. “You’re doing what is the most important thing to do, it’s continuing to study and learn what the scripture says and what it means,” she said. “I have a preacher friend who sends me scripture and devotionals, sometimes mini-sermons every day.”Hunt told Clinton that you “always learn something when you read it again and inspect it.” “Well, it’s alive,” Clinton said. “It’s the living word….continued”

    Nerdy, just catching up and wanted to bring your tweet over to this thread. 2016 candidates, pundits, etc who don’t recognize this FACT are going to find out real quick who will be electing the next President. I’ve been saying this for months now. Can’t be said enough! Thank you for all of your epic tweets tonight 🙂

    • February 28, 2016 at 12:02 am

      Great, great tweet, Nerdy Wonka! Thanks MadameSoph for sharing it again. Nerdy is so wise beyond her age! For Black folks, but especially Black folks in my age-group, the election of President Obama was earth-shaking. To this day I remember how much I cried–tears of Joy–when the networks called the election for President Obama.

      I thought it was disputable as to whether BS beat HRC with the Latino vote in NV. HRC also won a decent number of white voters tonight. she appeared to dominate in most groups. Not sure about her young voter numbers in SC.

      If I was thinking about supporting Sanders, his stupid acting supporters have turn me off. I will never forget the article in Huff Puff about how America deserve a First Lady that represent them. That would be Bernie’s wife. One thing you don’t do, you do not trash First Lady Michelle Obama. Now it seem another Bernie nut is trashing all black people. Hay Hussain, you and idiots like you won’t say Bernie.

    this evening, has anyone checked on health and mental status of one the chief black PBO-haters => I mean the brother reverend dr (once-celebrated professor of religion)?

    he can’t be in a good place because all the effort he made to GOTV by undermining PBO was all for naught

      from the essay:

      At stake in this election is control of a Tea Party-run Congress, at least one Supreme Court vacancy that could tip the balance for a generation, and the very real chance that a highly unstable demagogue could become the 45th president of the United States. So while I may not have imagined myself saying this a few years ago, I certainly believe it now: It’s far more important to elect Hillary Clinton in 2016 than it was to elect Barack Obama in 2008.

      I understand the stakes…

      But we would not be here without the Presidency of Barack Obama…

      America has become a combo of the good the bad and the ugly….but the Presidency of Barack Obama has shown us that we are not at the mercy of the forces that seek to enslave us…that we have the power to defeat them if we just come together…

      Very insightful and respectful article by Jon. His writings have always inspired me. He speaks his truths in his writings. His love, admiration, and respect for POB has and always will be so wonderful; so this article is respected by me. I know that Jon is a brilliant writer and an observer of a brilliant man, PBO. And his respect for POB is held in the highest esteem.
      His respect for Hillary shows also how much respect and forward thinking Jon has for PBO. He has stated often that PBO is a brilliant mind, and that he would do anything for him. I love Jon like a son, and know of several of his friends who spent many hours with him to encourage him in keeping those long hours of hard work for our president.HZ

    What kind of person heckles another about the death of their precious child?

    VP Biden is a very decent person indeed for not jumping of the stage and personally confronting that person.

    this incident reminded me of something that happened in my family.

    a day after our family buried one of my sisters, a person came into our home and told my devastated grieving parents that : “it is good that your child died”.

    before my father or any of the other mourners could react, my mother sprung into action and beat this person to a pulp.

    people tried to intervene but she just tossed them off her – she was like a wounded lion.

    luckily for this person, our home is near a police station and about 5 officers had to hold her off.

    heckler was hospitalized for many months;

    I doubt that I would have VP Biden’s restraint

    I am wondering if someone here can tell me what was offensive about this post I put on my Grandniece’s post about getting a college acceptance. I got a message from Facebook saying this offensive message was removed.
    “Congratulations, Karlynn. I hope you got a good scholarship. They are lucky to get you.”

    Trump tried to slime the judge in this Trump University case by saying he’s “Spanish, Hispanic” and therefore has it out for him.
    Glad to see this pushback:

      This morning again on NPR I heard the Donald said if he becomes President those in media that have smeared him will get sued. Makes sense he would do what he always goes to, law suits for using the system in his favor to forestall paying out or for getting even. Just the perfect type of person we need representing our country- NOT.
