Director of "The Big Short" warns of Hillary Clinton

Adam McKay, the screenwriter and director who recently won an Oscar for "The Big Short" — a movie about the Great Recession, which was triggered by the collapse of the housing market and the credit bubble because of the big bank's illegal activities — thanked Paramount Pictures for taking a risk on the movie.

And just like Senator Bernie Sanders, he warned people about voting for politicians like Hillary Clinton — candidates who take money from Wall Street and "weirdo billionaires".

But so far, too many Americans have not heeded that warning. So far, this is how they voted:

  • Hillary Clinton barely squeaked by with a win in Iowa with 0.4% of the votes (with Hillary winning 6 out of 6 coin tosses to break 6 ties.)
  • Bernie Sanders won by a landslide in New Hampshire (but in a State with a 93% White population.)
  • Hillary Clinton had a narrow win in Nevada with just 5.5% more votes than Bernie (but that was because Senator Harry Reid had rigged the election to favor Hillary.)
  • Hillary Clinton won by a landslide in South Carolina (with Blacks accounting for 61 percent of South Carolina's Democratic primary voters.)

Bernie Sanders said he was dedicated to taking the fight for the Democratic nomination all they way to the convention in July this summer (and his supporters are 100% behind him). Today is "Super Tuesday" — and at stake will be Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia.

Yesterday Bernie Sanders said: "We started this campaign at 3 percent in the polls — 60 or 70 points behind Hillary Clinton. We have rallied millions of people who want to see a government that represents all of us and not just the billionaire class. At the end of tomorrow, I think 15 states will have spoken. Last I heard, we have a lot more than 15 states in the United States of America. And I think it is more than appropriate to give all of those states and the people in those states a chance to vote for the candidate of their choice.”

Will those voting in the Democratic primary today vote for a Wall Street candidate who is backed by billionaires — or an honest candidate of The People? I guess we'll soon see.

Just a reminder: Bernie Sanders doesn't take money from the big banks and billionaires.


  1. Media Blackout As Thousands of Bernie Sanders Supporters March in 45 Cities ahead of Super Tuesday


  2. Nearly 40,000 people turned out to see the senator speak during his weekend whirlwind, packing venues in unlikely hot spots such as Dallas and Oklahoma City, which warmed to his message of tackling campaign finance corruption and reducing inequality.

    Jane Sanders told the Guardian last night: “If you go to the rallies, you see the hope and the nervous and the expectation, Bernie’s not going to let those people down. Every state should be able to voice their support for what they believe in. We know there is a significant amount of support for what Bernie stands for and for him as a candidate for president. We don’t know yet if it’s a majority, but we won’t know tomorrow either. We want to give people the opportunity to continue to focus on the issues and also to have the media and the other candidates to focus on the issues that we consider to be very important. No matter what happens with this presidential race, after the convention those issues and Bernie – they are not going away.”

    Hillary Clinton, during an event at George Mason University in Fairfax, was joined by Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, a longtime Clinton ally and rumored to be a potential running mate, who declared: “Virginia is Clinton country. She is a progressive who gets results.”

    [* What total B.S. -- The establishment politicians have been endorsing Clinton to be on the Wall Street gravy train. Hillary Clinton expects to win big on Tuesday, buoyed by the same electorate that helped her rout Bernie Sanders in South Carolina on Saturday night. Since her win there, she has all but pretended that Bernie Sanders doesn't even exist, never mentioning him and focusing more on the Republicans and the general election — as though she already had the nomination locked up. A vote for Hillary is a vote for more government corruption and more greed by the big banks.]

    1. Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe is rumored to be a VP choice for Hillary Clinton.

      Short Bio:

      In 1979 McAuliffe met Richard Swann, a lawyer who was in charge of fundraising for Jimmy Carter's presidential campaign in Florida.

      In 1988, McAuliffe married Swann's daughter, Dorothy. McAuliffe invested $800,000 in Swann's American Pioneer Savings Bank, which was taken over In 1990 by federal regulators, causing Swann to file for bankruptcy.

      In 1988 McAuliffe became the youngest chairman in the United States Federal Reserve Bank's charter association.

      In 1991 McAuliffe negotiated a merger with Credit International Bank and became the vice-chairman of the newly merged bank. Shareholders questioned if he was given special treatment; Chairman Richard V. Allen denied the allegation.

      In 1996 McAuliffe was co-chairman of President Bill Clinton's re-election campaign. McAuliffe and his staff raised $275 million, then an unprecedented sum, for Clinton's causes while president. After Bill Clinton's tenure ended, McAuliffe loaned them $1.35 million for an apartment in Manhattan, New York City. The deal raised ethical questions.

      In 1997 McAuliffe invested $100,000 in Global Crossing, a Bermuda-registered telecommunications company. In 1999, McAuliffe sold the majority of his holding for $8.1 million.

      In 1999 McAuliffe told The New York Times: "I've met all of my business contacts through politics. It's all interrelated."

      In 2000 McAuliffe chaired a fundraiser with the Clintons; setting a fundraising record of $26.3 million.

      In 2001 McAuliffe served as Chairman of the DNC until 2005.

      In 2008 McAuliffe was chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign and was one of her superdelegates at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

      In 2009 McAuliffe founded GreenTech Automotive, a holding company, which purchased Chinese electric car company EU Auto MyCar for $20 million in May 2010. Later that year, McAuliffe relocated GreenTech's headquarters to McLean, Virginia.

      In 2013 McAuliffe announced his resignation from GreenTech to focus on his run for governor of Virginia (after Bob McDonnell

      Current Net worth: $30 million

  3. Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ campaign manager:

    “Not only are we going to smash Secretary Clinton’s personal goal of raising $50 million in the first quarter of 2016, our supporters are putting Bernie on the path to win the nomination. Our supporters are a firewall protecting Bernie from the Clinton campaign’s wealthiest donors and super PACs.”

    Sanders has struggled to make inroads with non-white voters, but his message of a rigged economy held in place by a corrupt campaign finance system has resonated with young people and white progressive voters. He has criticized Clinton for embracing super PACs and for contributions from Wall Street donors and other special interests.


  4. Bernie Sanders has an estimated net worth of about $300,000 (Hillary Clinton's estimated net worth is $31,000,000 — Bill Clinton's estimated net worth is $80,000,000)


  5. We will soon see whether it's Clinton or Sanders. At this point it seems to be Clinton - if that happens will you vote Republican Trump for president?

    1. No matter what, will NOT vote for Hillary Clinton. I will not reward bad behavior, lies and dirty tricks with the Presidency. If Americans won't vote for an honest candidate, than I'd just as soon see a new crook in the White House.

  7. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton waived restrictions on selling weapons to governments that "donated" heavily to her family foundation, making it her personal mission to ensure that $29 billion worth of fighter jets were sold to Saudi Arabia -- despite the concerns of foreign allies and others in the U.S. government, including her department's and her own criticisms of Saudi Arabia. In the years prior to her becoming Secretary of State, Saudi Arabia had given the Clinton Foundation at least $10 million. The maker of the fighter jets, Boeing, gave another $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation while Clinton was Secretary of State and working on the sale.

  8. Larry Fink, BlackRock’s CEO, has assembled a veritable shadow government full of former Treasury Department officials at his company. Fink has made clear his desire to become Treasury Secretary someday. The Obama Administration had him on the short list to replace Timothy Geithner. When that didn’t materialize, he pulled several members of prior Treasury Departments into high-level positions at the firm, which may improve the prospects of realizing his dream in a future Clinton Administration. And his priorities appear to be so in sync with Clinton’s that it’s not entirely clear who shares whose agenda. Clinton, for her part, has refused to rule out a Treasury Secretary drawn from Wall Street.
