Outline for Bernie’s Speech Tonight

1. Congratulate Sec. Clinton for her victory and reaffirm that he has endorsed her.

2. State that there is more that unites us than divides us. Talk about common issues with Hillary.

3. Talk about the positive changes that have been made to the Democratic platform and rules, and that conditions are now better for future elections.

4. Talk about the historic Sanders campaign and all the issues he has raised in his stump speeches, staying on message.

5. Explain how we can’t vote for Trump, even though he has said some things to appeal to Sanders supporters.

6. Explain how the political landscape has shifted because of Trump, with conditions now favorable for a third-party run. Liberals and progressives must be united in order to defeat Trump.

7. Talk about the recent WikiLeaks revelations, and while he still endorses Hillary in comparison to Trump, he appeals to Superdelegates to reconsider their support of Hillary, in the best interests of Democratic Party Victory. This is a contested convention.

8. Praise the departure of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and call on Hillary to distance herself from the disgraced party chair.

9. Question the selection of Tim Kaine for Vice President. Elizabeth Warren was the logical choice, but the banks would not allow it.

10. If Sanders not prevail this week, he will abide by the outcome. It will be historic to elect the nation’s first woman president. “I will support a woman who will stand up to Republican deregulation. I will support a woman who will stand up to Republican trade deals, etc. .... I will support Jill Stein for President of the United States!”

Hillary Scandals Summary

Our claims are different from the Republican claims. The Republicans can't raise the same issues, because they're just as bad as Hillary. The types of issues I've been talking about are the ties to Walmart and Goldman Sachs, the bank bailout, the disastrous trade deals, the coup in Honduras, the murky switch on the bankruptcy bill, the appointment of donor Raj Fernando to the International Security Advisory Board, the secret promotion of fracking in other countries, her crafting of the TPP, her non sequiturs when talking with leaders of BLM, her lies and distortions about the auto bailout, the minimum wage, and DOMA, the dirty campaign tricks with the DNC database, the debate schedule, and the Hillary Victory Fund. And we still don't have answers about all the missing votes in states like Arizona, New York, and California. One Republican claim I'm still concerned about is the private email server. If a law was broken, I expect Hillary to be held to the same standard as anyone else. I am inclined to believe Julian Assange when he says there will be evidence sufficient for an indictment. Guccifer 2.0 has already released a spreadsheet showing that DWS and the DNC are soliciting contributions from both unions and the corporations that oppose them. So I'm sorry, there's just no way I can ever vote for Hillary. But you should be relieved to know that I am not voting for Trump, either. If the Dems follow through with Hillary, I plan to vote for Jill Stein.
