AP Jumps The Shark: Calling The Democratic Nomination

Today, June 7th, our most populous state (among others) goes to vote. To announce the overall winner the night before invites speculation of foul play… Upon hearing this newsbit from someone more glued to their phone than I, the immediate question that popped in my mind over all others, was… hmmm why couldn’t they wait one more day?

I wondered in this progression…..

A) Are they trying to persuade people NOT TO VOTE…

B) Are they trying to make sure no one else calls it before them , thereby getting to be considered the “new” expert and steal their place in all future contests as the final arbiter?

C) Are they showing off how they don’t have any morals? (“We’re bad; we’re bad”) Hounding superdelegates months on end reminds one of the ambulance chasing lawyers of the late 70’s?

D) Or are they jumping on the current news mantra of trying to create news, instead of report on it?… And therefore by pre-calling for Hillary to be the winner, minimize any Sander’s future claim on the superdelegates?

If you look at numbers, it seems funny for what you don’t hear….. Minus the superdelegates, here is where all stand.

2383 Delegates are required to win.

So far Hillary has won 1812.
So far Sanders has won 1521.
Ok, granted, so looks like Hillary’s ahead…

OH, but WAIT…..


I was in disbelief… Really, was it  the AP?  It was almost an “Et tu, Brute” moment….

Of course, by now everyone knows the American media is bought out… Of course, duh… Afterall, who is it all run by? Billionaires? Duh… We know that.. Amazon owns the Washington Post, for heavens sakes… Murdoch owns the Wall Street Journal and the National Geographic, for heaven’s sakes… Anyone with a brain noticed changes immediately occurring after each change in ownership….

But until now the AP has always stood on its credibility.  It allegedly is owned by the sources it reports to and gathers information from. They never say anything speculative. They never say anything purposefully untrue. They never say anything to influence results… When they call a race on election day, they are the ones the rest of us use to confirm the same suspicions we gathered from viewing all the same evidence.

If fact, with the modern age, and…

Perfect End to Democratic Primary: Anonymous Super-Delegates Declare Winner Through Media

“This is the perfect symbolic ending to the Democratic Party primary. The nomination is consecrated by a media organization, on a day when nobody voted, based on secret discussions with anonymous establishment insiders and donors whose identity the media organization – incredibly – conceals. The decisive edifice of super-delegates is itself anti-democratic and inherently corrupt: designed to prevent actual voters from making choices that the party establishment dislikes. But for a party run by insiders and funded by corporate interests, it’s only fitting that their nomination process ends with such an ignominious, awkward and undemocratic sputter.” – Glenn Greenwald

MEME-BOMB! A Call To Action! | the writing of john laurits



by John Laurits

EMERGENCY MEME-BOMB Call to Action! Greetings, Sanderistas! This post is a call to action — that’s right, I am asking for all of your help! Tonight, the corporate-media $hills have launched a sneak attack against our political revolution — they’ve falsely announced that Hillary Clinton is the projected winner of the democratic nomination. My friends, […]

Just to lift your spirits, Berners… | the writing of john laurits


I’ll make this short & sweet, then — my friends, there’s a lot of doom & gloom being circulated in the veins of the interwebs, right now. That’s why I’d like to ask everyone to not participate in all that yucky, stinky stuff — when the Hill-Trolls say something mean to you, return it with kindness — and when the corporate-media $ales-people start talking like they do, share a positive article (like this one!) to off-set their negativity. I guess that what I’m trying to say is this — we shouldn’t forget what this political revolution is about!

It’s about pitting policies of compassion against policies of profit —

It’s about creating a society that helps people, instead of hurting them —

It’s about creating a collective framework for a radically honest & democratic society —

& it’s about the people voting for what their consciences prompt them to,for what they love, instead of merely voting against what they hate & fear. Regardless of the results, I want Bernie Sanders’ supporters to be known — I want usto be known, not only for our unshakable solidarity & indomitable will, but for our kindness & our intelligence, too.

Now, keeping all that fluffy, nice stuff in mind — LET’S GIVE THEM HELL!

In solidarity,
John Laurits #SeeYouInPhilly
