The exaggerated and opportunistic claims about the 2016 Presidential campaign made by former DNC chairperson Donna Brazile last week rank among the most brazen, shameless, ham-handed attempts at self-promotion in the history of literary contracts.
It really leaves you flabbergasted. A book deal is that important? A few extra bucks, when you’re already loaded? Getting your name in the history books for the most rotten imaginable reason? Dante reserved the lowest level of hell for traitors.
Elizabeth Warren’s defection hurts too, of course, but that’s been waiting a long time to happen. She was a staunch Republican for many years.
She was the one the fake left wanted to hamstring Hillary Clinton with originally; Bernie was their stand-in. They called the campaign Run, Warren, Run. The reference is to the mentally handicapped Forrest Gump, and that’s about how smart the plan was. She didn’t bite, back then. Too bad about this time.
It’s always sad, to see someone sell their own people down the river.
The Brazile bone was thrown to get Democrats squabbling over last year, rather than focus on what’s going on right now- the biggest week in the Russiagate scandal
so far. This is a continuation of the Uranium One
strategy from last week. It was done in order to divert attention from a number of other events taking place now, events with actual significance.
This is what they do when they need to use deflection. They manage, in one way or the next, to push a button they know will cause internal strife among the left.
Millennial Democrats cannot help but wonder- How bad is it, on the Bernie side? Do they realize this is being done to hurt them as well as us, this trumping up of public records as scandals on Hillary Clinton?
But they brought it back up when they found it convenient and threw it at us like a bone among dogs in the hopes that we’d start in on each other. That’s what’s going on today. It’s an attempt at distraction, and they have got a lot to distract us from.
It’s a shame that people are greedy, and it’s also a shame they are gullible. But what can you do? Human beings have been selling each other out and doing each other dirty, since before we were even human beings. We’re learning. In the meantime, we can’t get mired down in the people who have stabbed us in the back. That’s why they did it. To slow us down long enough to bleed out.
The way the conservative media tells the story, things have reached the point now who you voted for in the primary is more important than anything else. It’s the fight that never ends. The fascists love it, of course.
Remember the #TrumpWon hashtag promoted by 4chan last summer? It featured a whole slew of tricks they were planning, including one that said- “Wouldn’t it be great, if we could get all the libtards fighting with each other, using our hashtag?”
2016 was 2016. We’re a month away from 2018. We either get ourselves together now or suffer. For however long it takes.
Malcolm Nance summed it up best today when he said that rehashing this again does nothing but to split the Democratic Party in half, and it gives Trump eight more years in office. What an atrocity of a waste that would be. What a stupid and absolute waste. The way things are looking now, we’re all going to be arguing Bernie vs Hillary together. On the bus to a concentration camp.
The Brazile claims amount to nothing more than a new batch of Hillary’s emails.
In a nutshell, they tell us that the DNC was broke and that Hillary Clinton paid out of pocket for the Democrats to have a candidate at all. What a foul and unspeakable crime! How dare we oppose a maniac, as he tries to take over the country?
Here are the facts, as laid out in a memorandum of understanding from August 26, 2015. Note that once again, not a bit of this is news or something that was covered up. It has been public record all the while.
The Democratic National Committee struck a deal with Hillary Clinton in 2015 that gave her campaign input on some party hiring and spending decisions, but required they be related only to preparations for the general election, according to a memo obtained by NBC News. It also left the door open for other candidates to make similar arrangements.
Both the Clinton and Sanders campaigns signed agreements that allowed the presidential candidates to raise money for the DNC.
The agreements came at a time when the Democratic committee was at the end of its financial rope. President Barack Obama had left the DNC penniless and in debt. When Debbie Wasserman- Schultz approached the campaigns around Labor Day of 2015, the DNC needed the joint fundraising agreements to stay operational and out of more debt. There would not have been a campaign at all if not for HRC.
In exchange for Hillary for America’s assistance raising money for the DNC, the party committee agreed “that HFA personnel will be consulted and have joint authority over strategic decisions over the staffing, budget, expenditures, and general election-related communications.”
The memo made clear that the arrangement pertained to only the general election, not the primary season.
It is only logical to secure some say in what is being done with your money. Especially if you yourself have one of the most acutely strategical political minds in the world.
The DNC maintained “the authority to make the final decision” on senior staff in the communications, technology and research departments.
The memo stipulates the DNC had to hire a communications director by September 11, 2015. But It also left open the possibility that it would sign similar agreements with other candidates.
“Nothing in this agreement shall be construed to violate the DNC’s obligation of impartiality and neutrality through the Nominating process. All activities performed under this agreement will be focused exclusively on preparations for the General Election and not the Democratic Primary,” the memo states.
“Further we understand you may enter into similar agreements with other candidates,” it continues. Bernie was asked to do the same thing. He just didn’t have any money.
This is yet another recent case of Donald Trump trying to turn us against each other and divert us from focusing fully on the relentless Robert Mueller and how close he is to Trump’s jugular.
Moving forward, we have got to stay focused. More than a hundred of HRC’s old staffers have spoken out against the revolting and unfair description of the campaign. It’s clear to most already that Donna Brazile is just a thirsty self-promoter.
Attacking HRC may appear politically expedient now, but that will only last a day. Popularity in the public eye is fickle, but a backstabber is never forgotten- and never trusted again. Furthermore, there is outrage over this like nothing we’ve seen since Bernie was scheduled to speak at the Women’s Convention.
This evening, Democratic candidate Ralph Northam released a report proving that Russian bots have been interfering in their race on his opponent Ed Gillespie’s behalf just as they did for Trump last year. We have to back him up, and we’ve got to do it now.
This is Election Week. We have got to win back the Virginia Governorship. We need a win. That is where our attention is needed this week, and that is where we’re going to put it. See you in the trenches.
