Las Vegas, Nevada, May 14, 2016: Yesterday, at Nevada’s Democratic Party Convention, Sanders was in the lead. He had won Nevada. So, the party chair (Roberta Lange) with some accomplices, unilaterally changed the rules thereby throwing out many Sanders votes and flipping the election, declared the convention concluded, and had the police clear the building.
Since Bernie Sanders began to run in the race for presidential candidacy, we have been hearing of voter suppressions, vote miscounts, and all sorts of electioneering being used against him (and obviously against democracy) in every state. It seems that when all these machinations still fail, the Hillary Conspiracy doesn’t even stop short of totalitarian regime methods.
I am so glad this was caught on tape. It often takes brazen violations of democracy like this for a duped people to wake up. Millions of Americans have already been waking up this year. They are rallying around Bernie Sanders and calling for legit politics and a fair and decent U.S.A. Take this word of warning, establishment kleptocrats: Keep playing us this contemptuously, and you will awaken more of us.
Conclusion #1: When they (the establishment) start losing, they change the rules.
Conclusion #2: The time for us the people to fight for our democracy is now.
As has been said:
The Cause Is Right and the Time Is Now!

A cool-headed, yet damning report:
Nevada Democratic Convention: Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders (2016) ~ Jordan Liles
Last, not least: a White House Petition to investigate this travesty (2020 Note: This, too, is gone (which is why I have now reduced it from being big and bold to call attention for participation); anyway, this petition had been started and we the people need to keep standing up for democracy.)
P.S.: The delegate counting process in Nevada (as all over our country) is so needlessly complicated and convoluted (needlessly, unless you want to tamper with it, that is) that I admit, I am having real trouble figuring out who won what. I stated at the beginning that Sanders had won Nevada because of older news reports I had seen to this effect, but now I have come across hind sight explanations which suggest that Hillary’s count had narrowly won (I say her count, not Hillary, because I distrust the counts done in Nevada (and a lot of other places) at this point) and the whole point of this late convention was to ladle out a small handful of more delegates. *rolleyes* Well, it’s consistent with my explanation that in our country they steal our votes in many small chunks. Anyhow, there are some good reports on this whole debacle and the smear campaign that followed it, and I am posting on them in a follow-up article. So, take a look at the next article. It serves up a lot of great videos. Enjoy!
(added videos in January 2020 to make up for the deleted ones and share some additional information that popped up after the original posting)
This may be another copy of the 1st shared-here video that was deleted. It is a good short summary of quite a bit:
What really happened in the Nevada Democratic Convention(The Video they keep taking down) ~ Jonah Veil Gaming

The first part of this video taken at the convention gives a little more of a glimpse of how Bernie delegates were blocked from participation. Then, instead of a recount (or a proper revote with everyone not un-delegated present) Roberta Lange, the Nevada State Democratic chair, took a vocal vote, asking for ayes or nays. And although there was not a clear majority for either side (possibly one or the other side slightly winning by noise level depending on where in the room a listener stood (but noise not really accurately reflecting the numbers of votes)), she highhandedly declared that a majority had voted to approve the new rules (that gave her such absolute power):

Good evaluation (with prediction that this kind of crap will make Trump win) (but possibly a mis-report on the few HRC delegates blocked like the many Bernie delegates):
Bernie Delegates Snubbed At Nevada Convention Over ‘Paperwork’ ~ Secular Talk
More info from a short read posted as a video. It explains the so far so badly explained votes (namely when and what they were about, as well as how they should happen vs how they were staged). In other words, the requested “recount” of what gets explained (basically a recount of the too-early with too-few convention members run affirmation vote for the new convention rules designed to let the convention chairwoman single-handedly decide the outcome of the Nevada caucus):

A report on the corporate media’s false violence claims (used to hide the convention rigging and smear Bernie Sanders and his supporters instead — this, by the way, is exactly how fascist tactics works):
Democrats Claim Bernie Sanders Supporters Are Violent ~ The Young Turks
More info from an interview of a Nevada state convention delegate later at the DNC convention (among other things pointing out that the claims of registration failures used as an excuse to dismiss Bernie caucus delegates were fictitious):

More info on the corruption of the Nevada “Democratic” Party governance (‘leadership’) coming from a lawyer who also tells about the anti-democratic court judge refusing to prosecute the party’s violation of democracy by the D Party:
Robert Kern explains what just happened #teambernienv ~ Adryenn
Comment: Almost funny that he thought the national D Party would retract from that when it cheated just as gleefully in the 2016 primaries.
