Explanation of What Happened to Bernie in SC is Hopeful

I was so curious: Why did Bernie do so badly in South Carolina? I read a Rolling Stone article,

WTF Happened to Bernie Sanders in South Carolina, Explained”, but I wanted more explanation. The article states all kinds of upside-down statistics that sharply differ from every other Hillary/Bernie poll. (Hillary polls more trustworthy than Bernie, and many other anomalies).

The South Carolina primary proves that  keeping people poor and having too hard a life to pay attention really works!  People clearly didn’t know Bernie’s policies or record.

Every Bernie supporter and public figure of color in a leadership position would have to come out strongly for Bernie, to quickly influence people and bring his “pro-regular-people, poor people, and old people” policies to the voting audience.

There’s going to have to be a huge mobilization of expertise and will – people are going to have to drop their normal lives and attend to informing people and getting involved in the Bernie Sanders campaign, right now. Because there’s a chance, people love him when they do get to know him. 2.4% unemployment in his state!

The Comment section of the article gave me more explanations about such a heavy loss in South Carolina: Mainly, they were “name recognition”; voter apathy: “167,000 Dems stayed home” and here are some others:

“SC is a Republican state, first & foremost. It has just ONE Democratic constituency and that is- Congressman Jim Clyburne’s district! The Democrat vote share of all voters is less than 12% of the entire state. So, yes- amongst this 12% minority share of entire SC’s voting population, Clinton won convincingly. This is no indication at all of the state of SC so, I wouldn’t put much emphasis on it. Given more time, which sadly Sanders may not have, the rest of the African American popn in the US, I feel would readily shift to Sanders once they became familiar with Clinton’s actual record with Civil Liberties esp amongst Blacks! “

“All this says to me is that South Carolina didn’t research the candidates before voting. Sander’s policy proposals would be drastically more beneficial to African Americans than Clinton’s. One candidate marched with MLK, one did not. I would be surprised if the majority of the South Carolina voters even knew that.”

Another explanation of what dinged Sanders is  Dirty Politics, Clinton supporters who are willing to slander and lie and subvert truth: Here’s a  comment that details how Congressman John Lewis, a powerful figure in the black community,  subverted the truth and smeared Bernie Sanders:

“How much of this win in the black community in South Carolina is due to Congressman John Lewis saying he never saw Bernie Sanders at Civil Rights events in the 60s (likely true as there were millions involved), but more importantly, ALMOST CERTAINLY FALSELY saying that he saw Hillary (then Rodham) and he saw Bill Clinton. In 1964 Hillary Rodham (now Clinton) was a 16 year old high school student “Goldwater ‘girl’.” Barry Goldwater opposed desegregation of public facilities. Hillary Clinton has grown from her youth, although there is NPR audio of her out there saying her political beliefs are rooted in the Conservatism with which she was raised. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?… ) (apparently January 13, 1996).
Did the young South Carolina citizens who voted for her prefer a minimum wage of $15 an hour as promised by Senator Bernie Sanders, or the “something less” indicated by Hillary Clinton?
To clarify what Congressman John Lewis stated, his statement about the Clintons came after he had finished a statement and was leaving and he responded to a question. He initially said he had never met Bernie Sanders at Civil Rights events, which well would be expected with the millions involved from all over the country. BUT THEN he added he met Hillary, he met Bill Clinton with the implication it was in the 60s.
There is a 2001 book in which Congressman John Lewis stated he first HEARD OF Bill Clinton in the 1970s and first met him in 1991, certainly long after the crucial Civil Rights years of 1960 to 1965. See: ( http://www.dailykos.com/story/… ).”

John Lewis did apologize for implying Bernie Sanders was lying about his involvement, but too little, too late.

Elissa’s February 2016 Prediction Newsletter

Dear Friends,
It’s been awhile since I went exploring and had an outdoor adventure, but one day last week when the weather warmed up, I took out a little hand-drawn map I’ve had for years, that supposedly led to some dinosaur tracks a little south of Santa Fe.
I never found the tracks, but I did stop at a petroglyph site that’s escaped my notice the whole twenty-some years I’ve been here. It’s only 3 ½ miles south of town! The Cieneguilla Petroglyph Site is an amazingly large collection of rock art scattered all over the cliffs. They’re only a short but kind of steep walk from the site’s parking lot. From the top of  the mesa you can see out over all of Northern New Mexico. It’s a quick trip  to a few centuries back if you look in the right direction! There’s more info on my links page…
Here’s another out of the way place worth stopping at:  The Puye Cliffs Welcome Center on NM 30, forty minutes north of Santa Fe. It doesn’t have an exact address…You can buy tickets to Santa Clara Pueblo’s Puye Cliff dwellings and get tourist information, but you can also eat in its little New Mexican café while gazing at the most spectacular mountain views through their huge glass windows.
I’ll be here for the rest of the winter…besides the mind-warping work of updating my website or maybe getting a new one, and the easier task of producing weekday psychic horoscopes, I’m enjoying new developments in my private practice. Like any art it keeps on changing (unless the artist stops growing), and requiring new things of me. I hope what I’ve written below is true about the month, and that the forces give us all courage to do what we gotta do.
I hope you all have a glorious month full of your own changes and accomplishments,
Love,
Elissa

Psychic Insights for February 2016
In February 2016 we can cleave away and separate from shaky moorings.  Instinct is strong, intuition is on…and you will feel it if you need to detach from familiar but hollowed-out supports. Fortunately, the stars suggest we can summon extra fortitude to be so decisive and brave. The February 1st psychic horoscope for the week sums it up for the whole month: “Today is a brand new day, a brand new week, and a brand new month…but besides that, the planets strengthen our will so that we can break through what hasn’t worked, and in the future, have a brand new experience! Tuesday is GroundHog Day, and like the movie, the message is to look at the past as something to learn from. You can choose differently! You can change!”
Out in the World: February belongs to Aquarius, a sign associated with brotherly love and communal visions. The global reality of so many displaced people sets in, and as the shape and size of the refugee crisis becomes clearer, it could be that in a few months, the tune really changes about what to do about it. Our collective perspective becomes more inclusive and humanitarian under the Aquarian sun.
Personal Guidance: The Sun in Aquarius is also a time of innovation and enlightenment. We might glimpse our own next and new incarnation – what we change into right in this life. Still, it’s unlikely that surety about the future is granted now – there are too many moving parts; all we can do is stay committed.
Fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius: You could finally be taking better care of yourself in some way that gives you a lot more peace. Something could be over that’s been a drag on you. You could successfully complete a chapter in your life, and feel like you’ve done the right thing for yourself by ending it. A lot happens to you this month. It’s not a month so much where you’re out in the world, but where you’re processing your own life. Re work: deals are being made and steps towards career goals are moving forward, yes they are! You are getting closer to success! However, your approach to your own progress is wavering: you charge ahead, and then tiptoe forward. Inner peace comes from believing it is right to want what you want.
Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces: You’re very intuitive this month, and your intuition is giving you a good feeling about where you’re headed. You’re happy to be clearing things up. You are feeling a growing inner freedom. It looks like good and new experiences are changing your picture of the future!  At some point during the month, your body is going to need and want a retreat. Take a little break, relax and recharge!
Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius: Air signs expect a lot of change, and can feel like they’re on the verge of it, but can have a hard time bringing it to the table in some way. You have a lot of questions about how to get on to something new. You’re clear what you’re done with and don’t want; now you want to be happy in new ways. With relationships, if you don’t like how you’re treated, here’s what fixes things: not relying on relationships that have proven to not be reliable.  Branch out and seek, and ye shall find. You’re looking for love this month, even if it looks like you’re looking for a new place or a new something else. P.S. In the middle of the month you get tired of some situation, and can finally choose differently. When you relinquish one thing, you’ll be given another.
For the Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn:Sometimes, people make a commitment to their work or themselves that they can really count on, one that takes them all the way across the river of unknowns to a new shore. Because of your strengths and abilities, it looks as if you Earth signs can go out on your own and establish new kinds of successes. But first, could it be there are loose ends to tie up, or tasks you forgot to do last month? Completing things is a fruitful activity in February. Whatever you do towards a new future, keep in you’re in the beginning of it. Trust your creativity, your ambition, and your delight in manifesting your talents.
