David E. Johnson: Democratic National Convention, Clinton corruption is obscene
I wondered last summer how Debbie Wasserman Schultz could declare so long before the first primary Hillary Clinton would definitely be the Democratic nominee. With the leaked Democratic National Convention (DNC) emails, we now know why she could confidently say that — the fix was already on.
I also wondered how Clinton got more than 700 superdelegate commitments a year out from the convention. We now know she bought those votes through at least 33 Democratic state parties in August of 2015, in Minnesota, wherein Clinton provided funds for candidates through a sophisticated money laundering system that allowed the Clinton campaign to funnel billionaires’ donations to state parties in return for them redirecting the money to the Hillary Victory Fund, and thus, concealing the donor identity and making it possible for donors to give twice the legal limit. Many of the beneficiaries were politicians who were also superdelegates. Thus, Bernie’s efforts to convince superdelegates to switch to him were just a joke; he never had an honest chance. No level playing field for him!
According to the Washington Post, “When the Sanders campaign alleged that the Clinton campaign was improperly using its joint fundraising committee with the DNC to benefit itself, Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias offered the DNC direction on how to respond, “My suggestion is that the DNC put out a statement saying that the accusations of the Sanders campaign are not true,” Elias wrote May 3.” But they were true.
On May 21, DNC national press secretary Mark Pautenbach pushed a narrative Sanders “never ever had his act together, that his campaign was a mess.” He further detailed other arguments that could be used to push that narrative and concluded, “It’s not a DNC conspiracy, it’s because they never had their act together,” the Post reported.
In response to a Politico story in which Sanders declared the party wasn’t being fair to him, Chairwoman Schultz wrote in an email, “Spoken like someone who has never been a member of the Democratic Party and has no understanding of what we do,” the Washington Post reported. So what else is it that they do besides undermining Bernie’s campaign?
There were anti-Semitic comments made by the DNC on May 5, which also suggested Bernie was an atheist and racist remarks were made about a black party member and some Hispanics, and sexist statements made as well elsewhere.
Emails also revealed the DNC was feeding “news” to the Washington Post, MSNBC, CNN, BuzzFeed and Politico. WikiLeaks has promised more emails and revelations are forthcoming — including about the Clinton foundation scam.
But the reason why Hillary Clinton continues with the lies and corruption is because she’s never held accountable by anyone — not even her own party — and why should they? The DNC establishment is part of the election fraud. They disenfranchised millions of Democratic voters by rigging the system. Bernie and Trump were right! So what will we do about it? What will you do about it?
After Schultz resigned in disgrace as the DNC Chairwoman because of her fraud and cheating, the queen of crony capitalism, Hillary, quickly hired her on to her campaign for the faithful corrupt services rendered and presumably to continue into the general election! Truly unbelievable! Bill said Hillary is uniquely qualified to run for president. I guess so, who else is doing this kind degenerate vice?
So here we are in a surreal situation, where Hillary has purposefully and systematically lied, cheated, bought and corrupted her way to the nomination and most of the DNC convention is cheering her on. Really? Hillary is in fact above all laws, which is the same thing as being lawless. Yet, I still hope against hope, most Americans recognize Hillary has no integrity, credibility, trustworthiness or morality, is an uncommon criminal, and her arrogant establishment elitism is truly worthy of repudiation.
