Union Members Support Bernie Sanders:(Many Union Members Say Hillary Can't Be Trusted)

Washington Beacon ^ | July 1, 2015 | Destiny Albritton 

Bernie Sanders has turned Hillary Clinton’s parade to the White House into a competitive race for the Democratic nomination, as unions prefer Clintons’ socialist opponent. organized an informal poll in mid-June 2015 and the results showed that union support for Hillary Clinton was lacking significantly.
Seventy-six percent of union members favor Bernie Sanders for president in 2016. Only 11 percent of union members favored Hillary Clinton.
The report said, “due to her time spent with the employer-friendly Rose law firm (which helps employers fight unions), as well as her stint on the board of directors for Wal-Mart, many union members believe Clinton cannot be trusted.”
Unions distrust Hillary Clinton’s intimacy with Wall Street, according to the report. In addition to that concern, Clinton declined to weigh in on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Labor leaders are opposed to the TPP.

Establishment Republicans Panic, NH Voters Respond to Trump: ‘Can’t be Bought, Won’t Back Down’ ^ | 7/1/15 

National Journal reports from New Hampshire:
“[I]t’s Donald Trump whose showing in recent polls could give him center-stage status at televised debates that start in just five weeks.
“Our country is honestly going to hell,” Trump said at a house party in Bedford, an upper-middle class community just outside Manchester. “The illegals are pouring into the country…. It’s far worse than anybody knows.”
Trump offered a rambling monologue that stressed his ability to solve the nation’s problems because of his business acumen and his smarts – particularly compared to the “third-rate” governors and senators running in the Republican primary.”

Donald Trump Has a Point

Breitbart ^ | July 1, 2015 | From Rich Lowry, Editor of National Review, at Politico Magazine: 

I was skeptical that Trump was really running, but now that the boats are burned behind him, watch out. He is set to be Herman Cain squared — an early-nominating-season phenomenon with a massive media megaphone.
As for his instantly notorious Mexico comments, they did more to insult than to illuminate, yet there was a kernel in them that hit on an important truth that typical politicians either don’t know or simply fear to speak. “When Mexico sends its people,” Trump said, “they’re not sending their best.”
This is obviously correct. We aren’t raiding the top 1 percent of Mexicans and importing them to this country. Instead, we are getting representative Mexicans, who — through no fault of their own, of course — come from a poorly educated country at a time when education is essential to success in an advanced economy.

Montana man seeks license for second wife

CBS ^ | Jul 1, 2015 10:44 PM EDT | CBS News/AP 

HELENA, Mont. - A Montana man said Wednesday that he was inspired by last week's U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage to apply for a marriage license so that he can legally wed his second wife.
Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage. Montana, like all 50 states, outlaws bigamy - holding multiple marriage licenses - but Collier said he plans to sue if the application is denied.
"It's about marriage equality," Collier told The Associated Press Wednesday. "You can't have this without polygamy."
County clerk officials initially denied Collier's application, then said they would consult with the county attorney before giving him a final answer, Collier said.

How Obamacare could lead inadvertently to free market health care!

Houston Politics Examiner ^ | July 2, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington 

The president’s chest thumping boasting to the contrary, Obamacare is still a mess that has caused health insurance premiums and deductibles to skyrocket. Some advocates of Canadian-style single-payer systems, such as socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, maintain that this state of affairs will lead Americans to accept a universal, government run “Medicare for all” system. Such a system would also feature rationing and death panels, as has been the case in countries that have adopted such arrangements. However, a Wednesday article in the Wall Street Journal suggests that Obamacare will, inadvertently, lead to a free market, customer-driven health care system that conservatives have dreamed about.

Bernie Sanders Draws Crowd of 10,000 in Wisconsin (while Hillary is now paying people to show up)!

NBC News ^ | July 2, 2015 | Alex Seitz-Wald 

"In case you haven't noticed, there are a lot of people here," Bernie Sanders said a bit awed as he took the stage in front of nearly 10,000 in a coliseum here.
Sanders has been attracting outsize crowds wherever he takes his unlikely presidential campaign. Five thousand came out for his kickoff rally in his hometown of Burlington, Vermont. Another 5,000 turned out in Denver, Colorado. In Minneapolis, a thousand listened from outside after the basketball arena where Sanders was speaking filled to capacity.
But Madison was different.
Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton attracted 5,500 people, according to her campaign, to her kickoff rally in New York City, and 1,800 in Virginia last week but has otherwise not focused on large rallies. While Republican Sen. Ted Cruz had 11,000 for his launch at Liberty University, attendance was mandatory for the school's 13,000-strong student body, so it's unclear how many came of their own volition.
