False Start

Getting the Jump,

All the plans were to announce Tuesday evening that the pledged plus "super" delegate count makes Hillary really, truly INEVITABLE. 
That plan was meeting with some general resistance, so SUPERSIZE IT!
Puerto Rican votes just pushed Hillary Clinton's delegate count over the TOP. 
Everybody in New Jersey and California can just stay home tomorrow.
It's a Done-Deal. Don't Bother.
MASSIVE 85% Vote Suppression in Puerto Rican Primary:
"This is currently the official results of the Puerto Rico Democratic Primary (6:52 am eastern time Monday, day after the primary) and the results show a total of 63,794 votes have been counted which they claim is 70% of the total votes. Uh… what?!? That means the total votes should end up being somewhere around 91,134 Holy shit. That’s only 13% of the original estimate of 700,000 from May 5th and 30% of the projected 300,000 from a week or so ago. In 2008 the Democratic Party primary in Puerto Rico had over 2,300 polling stations. Yesterday, there were 430. Poll workers are volunteers so the economic manufactured crisis in the territory had nothing to do with it."  Thanks, Tom.
"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." Senator Bernie Sanders
Hillary's brother-in-law, Roger (Dodger) Clinton, Bill's brother, got arrested for drunk driving in California, where he sits in jail. Good thing the fix was in! (Just before leaving office in January 2001, Bill Clinton pardoned Roger Clinton, who was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty in 1985 to conspiring to distribute cocaine.)

Here is an often-overlooked part of Muhammed Ali's human rights life-work. Thanks Cat.
In 1985, Ali traveled to Israel in an attempt to secure the release of Lebanese and Palestinian prisoners imprisoned in occupied Southern Lebanon. This followed on his visits to Palestinian refugee camps in 1974, when he declared in Beirut that "the United States is the stronghold of Zionism and imperialism." While visiting Palestinian refugee camps in South Lebanon, he declared "In my name and the name of all Muslims in America, I declare support for the Palestinian struggle to liberate their homeland and oust the Zionist invaders."
