A look at an old Nightly Show interview with Susan Sarandon where she does a good job of defending Bernie Sanders. I've added some commentary of my own for laughs and giggles.
PANEL - WILL BERNIE SANDERS VOTERS SWITCH ALLEGIANCE TO HILLARY CLINTON?APRIL 20, 2016 - SUSAN SARANDON 04/20/2016 Susan Sarandon, Mike Yard and Rory Albanese debate the responsibility of Bernie Sanders's supporters to rally behind Hillary Clinton in the general presidential election. (6:32)
A commentary on specific comments;
This is a general statement politicians use to get emotional support from crowds. I'm sure Hitler used a variation of this in German. It's a platitude that says nothing while promising everything.
Oh! Turns out I was wrong, she stole the line from JFK (I notice she stole stuff from my blogs as well, witch): “Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners. And necessity has made us allies. Those whom nature hath so joined together, let no man put asunder. What unites us is far greater than what divides us.” - JFK
The reason Susan Sarandon said this is because of her policies and the smears that she, & her Super Pac, did on Bernie Sanders. I'm used to Republican style politics myself but the Democratic side isn't. They swallowed Hillary's lies wholesale as if they were being told to them by thier mother. Well, half of them did. What Hillary is facing is the problem of lying so much during a "democratic" primary that she has lost credibility with much of the base that have open enough minds to think. BTW, I figured out HOW Obama beat her in 2008 (exposed her good);
1. Obama: "Hillary Clinton Will Say ANYTHING To Get Elected" (2008 Radio Add) PLUS Other Obama Take Downs Of Hillary Clinton From 2008 Which Reveal What A Lying Scumbag She Really Is!
2. REMEMBER: President Obama ACCURATELY Compared Hillary Clinton To George Bush (GOP Establishment) On Foreign Policy
3. Even Obama Wouldn't Trust Hillary Clinton With Trade Agreements Such As NAFTA & The TPP (& Obama Negotiated ON The TPP In Secret!)
Now Susan Sarandan points out specific ways Hillary Clinton could prove she's not like a GOP Establishment Republican;
I noticed earthquakes went off here to a ridiculous degree (houses are being damaged)... and no one here seems to know that the earthquakes are because of fracking. I'm beginning to think media in Oklahoma is either bought or so scared of the oil/fracking companies they don't defy them (we already know GOP politicians made it possible for oil companies to get away with damage to properties other than thier own in Bobby Jindals State... could the fracking companies have already been offered a way out of paying any liabilities/damage caused by thier fracking earthquakes? I don't see any 'payments for damage endured during a fracking earthquake' reported on the news. They seem to report earthquake damage like it's a surprise or a work of God rather than company. Ah! Nevermind. I found an article where it seems it's OK for Oklahoma citizens to sue fracking companies for their damaging earthquakes. We haven't got that far as to deny citizen rights for companies. I just get this feeling people here (Oklahoma media) have given up on waiting for Steven Seagall to come save them;
Fracking is offered as a solution by the Democrat Establishment to the oil price hike the Republicans seemed to control (& probably still do since they control most of the wealth). Oil prices HAVE gone down. Not sure if the right choices were made but I am sure the Political Establishment got what they wanted and made allot of money doing it (or about to make money from it).
This is interesting. It shows that, at least amougnst the well read liberals (as opposed to pure corporate media liberals), it's a well known fact that 'Hillary will say anything to get elected' (As Obama put it);
Here is a standard talking point of Democrat Establishment media;
This expresses a belief that Trump is a murderer while an actual murderer is an angel (blondes really do have it good!). I covered this here:
Explained: Grace Parra Says She Sees Trump As A Murderer While Supporting An ACTUAL Murderer - What Is Going On? Has Everyone Gone Mad?
Hillary can pander and lie and deceive. Saying "Hillary could pander" is understating what she did and does to a ridiculous extent;
This is more lik
We have on record what Hillary would do. I'm guessing his job is just too well paying and niche based for him to be concerned about the "free trade" policies Hillary has been pushing for decades that sends jobs abroad making a low minimum wage a feasible offer by the political establishment to help their own businesses.
This is a wise statement;
Hillary, with all her GOP like policies, IS a false choice. It's like someone is saying, "just pick someone who will keep the staus quo. It works for us". Or like Obama put it, "Join me and we'll trudge up the hill, slowly" basically saying when she does stuff she will be compromising with GOP Republicans and will give us policies that will harm the people. It's her record. When you say she won't you ignore her record. A record is important you know.
Her record (signs of her ability to judge right from wrong);
Hillary Clinton Passed A Bill To Keep Poor Immigrants In Slavery & Helped Put Black People In Jail. How Is She Not Being Called A Racist?
Hillary Is Not Qualified Because She Always Makes Atrocious Decisions That Pull The Country To The Right, NOT The Left & Harm Citizens Over Business Interests
Here Susan Sarandon restates what is written in the Declaration Of Independence and is a fact of history from the French Revolution and onwards and all the way back to Aristotle (at the very least);
I guess she's probably talking about the people in general, but yes, the Declaration of Independence allows for that possibility;
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Here Susan Saradon does some smashing the media doesn't like to cover (i.e. media is scared of these talking points);
OK. That was fun. Here is a list of facts and rants about Hillary Clinton;
