Later in the evening, he was named the projected winner of Montana and California, sweeping all five states holding primaries Tuesday. "You've given me the honor to lead the Republican Party this fall," Trump said tonight at the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, New York, where he entered to the song "We Are The Champions." Acknowledging his role as the party's presumptive nominee, he said, "Tonight we close one chapter in history, and we begin another...We're going to lead the Republican Party to victory this fall."

Bernie Sanders is 'disappointed,' 'upset' by AP race call | 07 June 2016 | Bernie Sanders said Tuesday he was "really disappointed" and "upset" that The Associated Press declared rival Hillary Clinton the presumptive Democratic nominee on the eve of primary elections in six states, adding a somewhat muted voice to the outrage expressed by many of his supporters. In an interview with NBC News, Sanders expressed concern that the news of Clinton's victory came the night before "the largest primary" and that it was based on what he described as "anonymous" commitments from superdelegates -- the party insiders and Democratic officials who can vote for the candidate of their choice at the summer convention.

Clinton makes history, declares win in Democratic race | 07 June 2016 | Hillary Clinton marked her place in American history Tuesday night, declaring victory in the Democratic presidential race. "Thanks to you, we've reached a milestone," she told cheering supporters in Brooklyn, saying for the "first time in our nation's history" a woman would lead a major-party ticket. Clinton hit the magic number of 2,383 delegates needed to clinch the nomination on Monday night, as news organizations called the race for her based on support from superdelegates -- party leaders and elected officials who have a vote at the convention and pledged to back her over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

'History made': Hillary Clinton claims Democratic nomination --The former secretary of state claims the mantle as the presumptive nominee, making her the first woman to lead a major party's bid for the White House | 07 June 2016 | Hillary Clinton declared herself the nominee of the Democratic party Tuesday, apparently on the cusp of winning enough pledged delegates to become the first woman to capture the nomination of a major political party in the United States' 240-year history. Clinton held her victory party in a cavernous hall in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, 24 hours after it was announced that she had clinched the nomination based on a tally of delegates maintained by media trackers. "It may be hard to see tonight but we are all standing under a glass ceiling right now," she said. "But don't worry. We're not smashing this one. Thanks to you, we've reached a milestone. The first time in our nation's history that a woman will be a major party's nominee."

Google involved with Clinton campaign, controls information flow - Assange | 07 June 2016 | American tech giant [NSAssociate] Google is closely cooperating with Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign to promote the candidate, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in a televised address to an international media forum.

He added that the company used the State Department as part of "a quid pro quo." The whistleblower believes that unlike Donald Trump, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is predictable and will constitute a problem for freedom of speech in the US if elected.

Obama seeking to amend surveillance law to give FBI access to Internet browser history, other data without a warrant

June 7, 2016 by legitgov

Obama seeking to amend surveillance law to give FBI access to Internet browser history, other data without a warrant | 06 June 2016 | The Obama administration is seeking to amend surveillance law to give the FBI explicit authority to access a person’s Internet browser history and other electronic data without a warrant in terrorism and spy cases. The administration made a similar effort six years ago but dropped it after concerns were raised by privacy advocates and the tech industry. FBI Director James B. Comey has characterized the legislation as a fix to "a typo" in the Electronic Communications Privacy Act [!], which he says has led some tech firms to refuse to provide data that Congress intended them to provide. But tech firms and privacy advocates say the bureau is seeking an expansion of surveillance powers that infringes on Americans' privacy.

Sanders Campaign Statement

June 7, 2016 by legitgov

Sanders Campaign Statement | 06 June 2016 | U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders's spokesman, Michael Briggs, on Monday issued the following statement: "It is unfortunate that the media, in a rush to judgment, are ignoring the Democratic National Committee's clear statement that it is wrong to count the votes of superdelegates before they actually vote at the convention this summer. Secretary Clinton does not have and will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to secure the nomination. She will be dependent on superdelegates who do not vote until July 25 and who can change their minds between now and then. They include more than 400 superdelegates who endorsed Secretary Clinton 10 months before the first caucuses and primaries and long before any other candidate was in the race. Our job from now until the convention is to convince those superdelegates that Bernie is by far the strongest candidate against Donald Trump."

Clinton Secures Number of Delegates to Clinch Democratic Nomination | 06 June 2016 | Hillary Clinton has secured a majority of delegates to the Democratic National Convention, NBC News projected on Monday evening -- meaning the former secretary of state is now the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party. To win the nomination, a candidate must secure a majority of all delegates, or 2,383. But 15 percent of the total delegate pool is made up of superdelegates -- current and former elected officials and party activists who aren't bound to vote for the candidate selected by voters in their home state's primary. Many -- but not all -- of the Democratic superdelegates have publicly declared their support for either Clinton or her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

The 'anointment' of Hillary Clinton: Bernie begs press not to call race on Tuesday for his opponent before California polls close

June 5, 2016 by legitgov

The 'anointment' of Hillary Clinton: Bernie begs the press not to call the race on Tuesday for his opponent before California polls close --With superdelegate support, Clinton will cross the threshold to become the Democratic nominee after New Jersey is called --That's three hours before California votes, and the results could depress turnout on the West Coast | 04 June 2016 | Bernie Sanders made an impassioned plea on Saturday to superdeledates and the media not to write him off on Tuesday before the polls close in California. Blasting what he called an 'anointment process,' Sanders said he has a chance to win California, possibly by a large margin, but turnout could be depressed if the media calls the race for Clinton when the polls close on the East Coast. With superdelegate support, she'll cross the threshold to become the Democratic nominee after New Jersey is called, three hours before the deadline for Californians to cast their ballots. 'It is extremely unlikely,' as Sanders argued today, that Clinton will have enough pledged delegate support to win the nomination at that time. Yet, she's likely to declare victory, and the national media can be counted on to follow suit.

Use it or lose it: Occasional Ohio voters may be shut out in November

Use it or lose it: Occasional Ohio voters may be shut out in November | 02 June 2016 | As the Nov. 8 elections loom, officials in Ohio have removed tens of thousands of voters from registration lists because they have not cast a ballot since 2008. All U.S. states periodically cleanse their voter rolls, but only a handful remove voters simply because they don't vote on a regular basis. And nowhere could the practice have a greater potential impact in the state-by-state battle for the White House than Ohio, a swing state that has backed the winner in every presidential election since 1960. Voters of all stripes in Ohio are affected, but the policy appears to be helping Republicans in the state's largest metropolitan areas, according to a Reuters survey of voter lists.

Bernie Sanders on Saturday vowed to continue his fight for the Democratic nomination beyond the primary season, telling reporters at a news conference in Los Angeles that he plans to go after Hillary Clinton's superdelegates..."The media is in error when they lump superdelegates with pledged delegates. Pledged delegates are real," Sanders said. "Hillary Clinton will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to win the Democratic nomination at the end of the nominating process on June 14. Won't happen. She will be dependent on superdelegates." He vowed, "The Democratic National Convention will be a contested convention."

Anti-Trump demonstrators attacked his supporters Thursday night in ugly street brawls | 04 June 2016 | A Black Muslim man chased a white Donald Trump supporter and tackled him to the ground at the Republican candidate's San Jose rally Thursday. The Twitter user with the handle 'Houdini' @sizzle_seyf claims to be the person who was seen on video chasing and tackling a young white male Trump supporter. 'Houdini' posted a news video that showed him suddenly coming up behind the guy, who was wearing a red shirt, grabbing him and throwing him down on the ground...A dozen or more people were punched and knocked to the ground by protesters during the melee, as anti-Trump demonstrators grabbed the candidate's signature hats from off of the heads of his supporters in order to set them on fire. And at one point, a mostly male mob that was five to six people deep even surrounded a female Trump supporter and began to pelt the defenseless woman in the face with eggs and watermelon.
