It is proper English to say none of ‘is’, just like everybody ‘is’. The word ‘none’ is a quantitative adjective and is used singularly, not with a plural connotation. Another example of the usage of none ‘None of the members is going’ rather than ‘none of the members are going’.
With mass nouns or pronouns, in this case object pronoun ‘us’, you use ‘none’ as a singlular. (ref.Mark Israel – ‘fast access FAQ’. Hope the brief grammar lesson helped. :)
I LOVE HILLARY..REGARDLESS. SHE IS THE BEST. :)

None of us is is correct.

Did you notice the bad grammar our most undistinguished Senator from NY used in her speech on May 19th in Maysville, KY.? I quote from Ellen Wulfhorst’s article: “None of us is going to have the number of delegates we’re going to need to get to the nomination, although I understand my opponent and his supporters are going to claim that,” Clinton, a New York senator, said in Maysville. I do believe correct grammar is: None of us ARE…
Gee, where did she get her education? I would hope (and appreciate) the candidates running for the highest office in our country would speak PROPER English.

Sincerely, Christina
