Bernie needs to be ground to a pulp. We can’t start believing our own primary bullshit. This is no time to run the general. Crush him as hard as you can. Other than that, hope all is well and congrats on Nevada!

That wikileaked email is from Joel Johnson, Managing Director of The Glover Park Group, who was Bill Clinton’s Senior Advisor for Policy and Communications during the 1990s. Salon on November 3rd presented more of his connections to Hillary’s campaign.

When the conversation is about regulation or legislation

GPG’s Policy Advocacy team helps organizations navigate the world of federal legislation and regulation.

We work with our clients to define their priorities and positions. We use research to create sharp messages and attention-grabbing advertising. We change minds and drive actions on the biggest issues of the day.

We’re experts at shepherding your message through the labyrinth of government. Our lobbyists come from the halls of Congress, the White House and regulatory agencies. …

Our work is often invisible. But the results speak for themselves.

This is how ‘democracy’ works in America (and other corrupt nations). These people are ardent ‘Democrats’. They despise Bernie Sanders. (He’s far too honest — he doesn’t need people like them. But now he’s lying to promote Hillary against Trump. He’s not totally honest. He’s dishonest enough now to work on the side of people such as Joel Johnson.)
