Ahem. But really? The Berniebutters. These people who were all like “I like Bernie but…” – we now know at least some of them were doing this on a professional level for kickback, but i’m sure there were a lot of people who were genuinely, if ignorantly, making the argument. Thanks to these delightful folks we’re now faced with the current choices. I do hope they appreciate the outcome either way.

5. Easy – DWS.
If she had done her job, overseeing a fair and impartial primary process, we wouldn’t be in this predicament of having an unpopular, criminally corrupt, Corporstist, war-mongering, Democrat opposing a neo-fascist demogogue.
However, it wasn’t unexpected. Anyone who saw her in action during the ’08 primary as Clinton’s Florida Campaign Chairperson probably figured out she’d tip the scales this year where and whenever possible. We even spoke up early on, knowing there were going to be shenanigans.
this utter corruption of the Dem Party is why I left it. Reform isn’t going to be possible. Burn the motherfucker down, and sow the seeds for something new and positive to grow.

10. The American public/electorate.
Hillary and her team are suckering so many progressives but only cause they are such an easy mark. Our system should be able to withstand the onslaught of the two horrible candidates chosen for us by the duopoly. But only if the electorate does their part.
That folks who call themselves progressives, liberals or even just moderates can overlook that HRC and WJC absorbed over 200 million dollars from the monied interests and still think the HRC will not be corrupted by this is simply inconceivable.

11. The corrupt corporate owned MSM, OBAMA, DOJ and the FBI.
Every one of them are major players in this and have let the destruction of our country move forward. They should all be tried for treason, but who’s going to arrest them? There are no honest brokers in our government. They saw our apathy and took advantage while they could. And it worked.
And here we are, facing a misogynistic, xenophobic, bigoted buffoon or a warmongering, corrupt to the core felon who will be pounding in the final nail in our coffin and most likely by a nuclear war…if the warmongering felon has her way. I so hope she’s stopped by someone /something.
Whatever happened to the NYPD that said THEY would release all the dirt on the warmongering felon if Comey didn’t arrest her? More hyperbole by RWers?

18. Why DOJ? / global coup.
I’m not trying to claim they are blameless in all things but I think the overwhelmingly evil players have to be the selling out of the public over the last twenty five or thirty years by the people who control the “two parties”, the mega banks and drug companies and insurance companies and energy companies and the people who collude with them.. (to the detriment of all society) They are also teamed up with the WTO/OECD/World Bank, IMF, and so on which are ALSO run by the global ultra wealthy and their corporations-
They’re literally taking over the whole world and ending democracy in all respects – leaving us with a sham- democracy in name only with their trade deals.
Thats why Hillary-Trump is getting shoved down our throats NOW (along with lies about how we’ll be able to reverse any damage in four years. etc. we wont be able to, thats a bad joke.)
Its all happening because jobs are going away for good fast, due to exponentially improving labor saving technology. So in 20-30 years there will be practically no jobs. So the goal is to lock down the future and end the safety nets irreversibly now while they still can.
Its a global coup."Out of many, one"

21. I'd add another……
to the list. Our Democratic Party that sold us out to get the spoils and rewards of the Republicans to make themselves prosper.
The Wikileaks Podesta revelations show it all. We suspected our Dems had gone afoul…now we have evidence. Problem is…what do we do about it when even those we trusted have turned to the dark side and shafted us in the back?
We got Bernie enough small donor funds to run to the finish. When are we going to put together crowd funding for an independent media, featuring investigative reporting, given that Obama has pretty much made whistle blowers an example for Govt. crackdown and set the stage for the “Final Solution” for the Dem Left (FDR Dems)?
I miss Bill Moyers and his efforts. We have to find someone to lead a Mainstream Media Revolution.

30. I disagree, I think Comey got sandbagged by Lynch & Obama
Even if Comey had recommended charges be brought against Clinton, it would have been up to the DOJ to proceed with the case and they would have strung the case out until well after the election.
I think the President told Lynch to make sure there would be no indictment and to let the Clinton’s know, hence the meeting at the airport that we never would have found out about if some airport worker hadn’t called someone in the local news.
As to why the President told Lynch to make sure there was no indictment, I have two theories: the first theory is that the Clinton’s had something on Obama that would have destroyed him publicly; the second theory is that a trial would have brought into the light not only how many important Democrats knew about the private server, but that many of them also had a private server so that they could communicate with being subject to FOIA requests or having the information become part of the official government record.The MSM is not our friend. Always wonder what agenda a news story is trying to push.

13 states, who hacked and purged Bernie voters from the rolls in Arizona and who attempted to do so in Illinois. The hacking of these voter rolls were the first ones the FBI suggested might be Russian origin, because they launched attacks from servers owned by a Russian (though most of these servers are in the US and Europe); but the the FBI never followed up when the Russian owner offered to cooperate to help find the hackers.

48. Many good nominees here, but I will add a new one
Clinton is the biggest failure in this whole thing. She lost Wisconsin in the primary by 15 points to Bernie and then NEVER campaigned in the state even though an honest man like Russ Feingold was begging her to bring some excitement to the race in the Badger State. This was just shameful, but there were big fundraisers in California, ya know… A Clinton pass up FREE MONEY?!?!?!
But the MSNBC lineup of Clintonbots, none worse than Rachel Maddow, really set up this whole disaster — remember — if Clinton wins, all of this would have been hush-hushed. It was only after the election that Obama had the “courage” (or is it arrogance) to come forward.
I decided I had to turn off Rachel when she was boastfully and laughingly claiming that PPP (bogus dem polls) not only proved that Clinton would win in a landslide, but that bedbugs were more popular than Donald Trump!
I don’t even want to know what disgusting creature is now more pop-pop-popular than Hillary Clinton. But over at DU and DK, morons want to bring her back for 2020, even going so far to say she will be a “shoe-in” by historic landslide proportions — just INSANE!
That solid 4 hours of Clinton propaganda every weeknight on MSNBC was not enough to, you know, actually get people to think she was worth getting out and voting for. Please don’t forget, she spent almost TWICE what tRump spent. Please help us if Hillary (or any Clinton) ever gets catapulted onto the national stage like this again.Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, Argh!

49. Kamela Harris would make my top five.
She held the Office of State Attorney General in California during a time when Californians were hard hit by the housing collapse, and while Obama and Eric Holder arranged raids on people in poor neighborhoods where it was assumed that folks might be growing pot.
She never punished Mnuchen, the head of a major banking firm here. Now this criminal will go on to head Treasury, which would not be happening if he’d been indicted. And she certainly didn’t try and stop Holder from his pot raids. Stopping him might not have been that hard, as often the raids occurred without warrants.
Somehow she is perceived as being progressive, but it’s another case of an attractive person of color appealing to people. The public so often reads into a person’s character what we want to see, not what they truly are. It’s a shame as California deserves a decent US Senator, not another Di Fi or HRC-type.
Jimmy Dore does a great smack down of Harris here:
