Is Trump here to get Hillary elected or is it the other way around? You had better wake up Dems.
by H.A. Goodman, Huffington Post
Millions of Democrats are voting for a presidential candidate linked to an FBI criminal investigation. These voters either don’t know there’s been a year-long FBI investigation of Clinton’s emails, don’t care, or would vote for Clinton even she faced Espionage Act indictments. Potentially our next Commander in Chief will be interviewed by the FBI soon, as will her top aides. This state of affairs would never take place in any other leading democracy, but American politics is unique.
Bernie Sanders has political momentum, grass roots support throughout the nation, and defeats Donald Trump by a wider margin than Clinton. Sanders has surged to within several points nationally of Clinton, despite being over 50 points down not long ago. In contrast, Clinton lost astronomical leads to both Obama and Sanders, and doesn’t keep polling leads. Furthermore, Trump won’t watch his tone about emails, and every other scandal associated with both Clintons. The pedestrian polling lead Hillary Clinton currently holds over Donald Trump isn’t set in stone; Trump is already ahead of Clinton in a recent poll.

A federal judge on Wednesday signaled that he may be willing to order Hillary Clinton to testify about the decision to conduct official business on a private email server while she served as secretary of state.
U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan said in an order made public Wednesday that it “may be necessary” for Clinton to be deposed in an ongoing Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking unrelated employment records for one of her closest advisers while she was at the Department of State.
The judge said “questions surrounding the creation, purpose and use of theserver must be explored” so that he may assess whether it was put in place to circumvent federal open-records laws.

Yesterday I wrote since The Donald has become the presumptive nominee of the Grand Old Party for Grandiose Old White Guys, suddenly there were an awful lot of their party members deciding to jump on the Hillary bandwagon.
That trend has grown (groan?) in the last 24 hours.
“Mark Salter, a former speechwriter for John McCain, tweeted support for Clinton Tuesday after Trump peddled an unsubstantiated story by the National Enquirer linking Cruz’s father, Raphael Cruz, to John F. Kennedy’s assassination. In an email to MSNBC, Salter said he considered Clinton “the more conservative choice and the least reckless one.” ”
“Jamie Weinstein, senior editor at Tucker Carlson’s conservative news website Daily Caller also suggested he’d support Clinton over Trump, writing an op-ed Wednesday titled, “Hillary Is Preferable To Trump Just Like Malaria Is Preferable To Ebola.””Malaria is curable”
“And in an essay for the Federalist, staunch conservative (and five-time undefeated “Jeopardy” champion) Tom Nichols explained his rationale for supporting Clinton over Trump” Alter Net
Aside from the fact that Hillary is more conservative that the image that Donald Trump is currently projecting, the strategy here is that of the old Hamilton rule which is the same idea many of us had back in 2008 and 2012 when we figured out now President Obama was a neoliberal in liberal clothing.
Frankly, since it’s pretty much a given that the DNC will continue to rig the primaries and install Hillary as the nominee, I would much rather see Donald Trump as the winner in November than her. And it’s very much because of this idea.

Nothing says “moderate progressive liberal” like having far-right wing republicans tipping the scale of your presidential bid.
If Hillary’s fans are worried that the Sanders crowd wont get behind her candidacy this November, they can rest easy knowing that their candidate is also the candidate of the entrenched war-party of the neocons now that Trump is the last man standing after both Ted “The Televangelist” Cruz and John “My Feelings Matter” Kasich have both officially dropped out of the race.
“Were (Trump) to be nominated, conservatives would have two tasks. One would be to help him lose 50 states… (and) confine (Hillary) to a single term” George Will, neocon
” I have faith that Clinton’s foreign policy would align with what I’m looking for, and she would have my vote.” neocon working for the American Enterprise Institute

This is apparently a growing trend. Back in April, a Suffolk University poll showed that as many as 19% of the republicans polled said they would vote for Hillary Clinton before voting for Trump. And that was before all these influential neocons were jumping on board with Team Killary!
So don’t worry if the Sandanistas are too liberal to vote for a corporatist, criminal, lying war-monger like Hillary Clinton. The corporatist, criminal lying war-mongers of the other Big Business party will MORE than compensate for the loss.
There you go, Hillary fans! You can now proudly say #ImWithHerAndDickCheney
