HMM, IS THIS AN ADMISSION THAT THE DNC DID COLLUDE AND FAVOR HILLARY OVER BERNIE?
As reported at NBC News, the “embattled” DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers dated by at least April 15, 2017. There usually is mass turnover following a presidential election, but nothing like this. This extreme house cleaning is a result of the DNC’s failures in losing to Trump, failing to gain back the House and Senate and the hacked emails that came to light showing that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary. Is this a bone thrown to the far LEFT Sanders’ voters and a sign that the Dems are going to go even farther left?
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party’s organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers.
Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.
Immediately after Perez’s selection as party chairman in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal workings.
A committee advising Perez on his transition is now interviewing staff and others as part of a top-to-bottom review process to decide not only who will stay and who will go, but how the party should be structured in the future. [...]
It began with accusations that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, continued with the wrenching exposure of hacked emails and the abrupt resignation of former chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and concluded with the shocking defeat of its presidential nominee and a divisive race for the new party chairman.
The grueling experience, which followed years in which many Democrats felt the Obama White House ignored the party organization, has left the DNC with a crisis of confidence and competence.
Powerline asks why NBS News, a perennial shill for the Democrat party would use the word “embattled?”
That is the great unspoken fact of American politics. Conservatives are hard on the Republican Party–we often denounce our party’s leaders as inept, or worse. But in fact, the Republican Party is riding a wave of historic success. It is the Democrats who are sliding downhill toward oblivion, if present trends continue. Has any major political party in any country ever had such an unsympathetic set of leaders as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton? Not that I know of.
Hence the “embattled” status of the Democratic National Committee. It will take a lot more than a few staff changes to alter the fortunes of the Democratic Party, but NBC offers no evidence that any major rethinking is in progress. On the contrary.
The view that the Democrats’ problem is that they haven’t moved far enough to the Left is not widely held among objective observers, but it apparently seems plausible to NBC. Watch for the Democrats’ downhill slide to continue.
WAIT A MINUTE … ISN’T THIS WHY DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ WAS BOOTED AS DNC CHAIR … SO WHY ISN’T DONNA BRAZILE SHOWN THE DOOR WAS WELL?
Hey Sanders’ supporters, are you feeling burned yet? A note to all of you, your candidate never had a chance because Hillary Clinton and the RNC were working in collusion against Bernie Sanders. The DNC, who is supposed to be neutral, was working with Team Clinton and feeding them info. From Observer Politics comes the following that from Wikileaks emails, current DNC chair Donna Brazile, when working as a DNC vice chair, forwarded to the Clinton campaign a January 2016 email obtained from the Bernie Sanders campaign, released by Sarah Ford, Sanders’ deputy national press secretary. The email was announcing a Twitter storm from Sanders’ African-American outreach team. The Clinton staff wrote back to Donna Brazile … “FYI” … “Thank you for the heads up on this Donna.” UNREAL. Why is Donna Brazile still the DNC Chair? This is why Debbie Wasserman Schulz was fired.
On October 10, Wikileaks released part two of their emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta.
Friday, Wikileaks released their first batch of Podesta’s emails, which included excerpts from Clinton’s Wall Street transcripts that reaffirmed why Clinton refused to release them in full. During the second presidential debate, Clinton confirmed their authenticity by attempting to defend one statement she made in the speech about having a public and private stance on political issues. She cited Abraham Lincoln, a defense comparable to her ridiculous invocation of 9/11 when pressed on her ties to Wall Street during a Democratic primary debate.
The latest release reveals current DNC chair Donna Brazile, when working as a DNC vice chair, forwarded to the Clinton campaign a January 2016 email obtained from the Bernie Sanders campaign, released by Sarah Ford, Sanders’ deputy national press secretary, announcing a Twitter storm from Sanders’ African-American outreach team. “FYI” Brazile wrote to the Clinton staff. “Thank you for the heads up on this Donna,” replied Clinton campaign spokesperson Adrienne Elrod.
The second batch of emails include more evidence of collusion between the mainstream media and Clinton Campaign.
One email, received by prolific Clinton donor Haim Saban, was forwarded to Clinton staff, praising the friendly moderators in the early March 2016 Democratic primary debate co-hosted by Univision in Florida. “Haim, I just wanted to tell you that I thought the moderators for last nights Debate were excellent. They were thoughtful, tough and incisive. I thought it made Hilary appear direct and strong in her resolve. I felt it advanced our candidate. Thanks for Univision,” wrote Rob Friedman, former co-chair of the Motion Picture Group.
Another email discusses planting a favorable Clinton story in The New York Times in March 2015. “NYT heroine. Should she call her today?” Podesta wrote to other Clinton campaign staffers with the subject line ‘Laura Donohoe.’ “I do think it’s a great idea! We can make it happen,” replied Huma Abedin. The story they referred to is likely “In New Hampshire, Clinton Backers Buckle Up,” published in The New York Times on March 12, 2015 about Laura Donohoe, a retired nurse and Clinton supporter in New Hampshire.
John Harwood, New York Times contributor and CNBC correspondent, regularly exchanged emails with Podesta—communicating more as a Clinton surrogate than a journalist.
In an October 2015 email thread, Clinton staff were in damage control over Hillary’s support for the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defined marriage as between a man and a woman. Hillary Clinton would not disavow her support for it. “I’m not saying double down or ever say it again. I’m just saying that she’s not going to want to say she was wrong about that, given she and her husband believe it and have repeated it many times. Better to reiterate evolution, opposition to DOMA when court considered it, and forward looking stance.”
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE ANTI-HERO, ANTI-MILITARY, ANTI-VET AND ANTI-WAR DEMOCRAT PARTY …
Unbelievable, DNC delegates chant and turn their backs on Medal Of Honor winner while he lists the names of dead soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend and provide these yahoos the right of freedom of speech. What a sick display of what the Democrats really think of the military, leadership and true American heroes. What the hell has the Democrat party become?
Last night the DNC tried to make it look like they were patriot with all the red, white and blue and little flags that were handed out in advance and what happened was a disgrace.
UPDATE I: ‘No more war’ chants interrupt general.
It really makes one wonder why anyone in the military would support the democrat candidate and be a pawn for them when its obvious that the democrat party is anti-military.
Anti-war protesters repeatedly interrupted retired Gen. John Allen on Thursday night as he offered a speech supporting Hillary Clinton for president.
Chants of “no more war” were heard at least three times from pockets of delegates around the Wells Fargo Center at the Democratic National Convention.
They were quickly drowned out by others in the arena who chanted “U.S.A.” while waving blue and red signs. Others in the stands waved large American flags.
It was hard to tell in the arena whether the “U.S.A.” chants were intended to drown out anti-war messages or were themselves spontaneous.
But on television, it came across as raucous support behind Allen’s speech.
DISRESPECTFUL: Black Lives Matter Protestors Interrupt DNC Moment Of Silence For Fallen Police Officers (VIDEO)
UNREAL, DEMOCRATS AT DNC DISRESPECT A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR FALLEN POLICE OFFICERS …
No words are required, you only need your eyes and ears to witness the contempt and disrespect of those in the crowd at the DNC for what they think of police officers and the very people that protect and serve us daily. When asked for a moment of silence for fallen police officers the DNC embarrassed themselves and showed just how truly vile they can be. Really, interrupting a moment of silence, what kind of scumbags are you?
Two people interrupted a moment of silence meant to honor slain police officers at Democrats’ convention Thursday, shouting “black lives matter” as the rest of the thousands assembled were quiet
Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez, whose city was the scene of the ambush that left five police officers dead and seven wounded earlier this month, asked for the moment of silence.
After things quieted down, a man interrupted with the “black lives matter” shout, and a woman then interjected herself.
What those at the DNC Really Think of the Police
Take a good look at what a respectful moment of silence looks like courtesy of the Republican National Convention from Cleveland Ohio. Is it really that much to ask to shut your trap for 30 seconds and pay respect to those that protect and serve every day the American people and put their lives on the line? The answer is obviously yes, it is asking too much for Democrats.
Moment of Silence for Police opens the RNC
DRIP, DRIP DRIP …
Wikileaks has now released hacked voicemails of top Democratic officials. You can listen to them HERE.
Another shoe has been dropped by Wikileaks.
On the night President Obama and Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine were scheduled to speak to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, the anti-secrecy whistle-blower group released hacked voicemails of top Democratic officials.
Wikileaks put up a page containing 29 mp3 files of calls, identified by phone number, running approximately 14 minutes combined.
Guccifer 2.0, the hacker who breached the Democratic National Committee, has released a cache of purported DNC documents to The Hill in an effort to refocus attention on the hack.
The documents include more than 11,000 names matched with some identifying information, files related to two controversial donors and a research file on Sarah Palin.
“The press [is] gradually forget[ing] about me, [W]ikileaks is playing for time and [I] have some more docs,” he said in electronic chat explaining his rationale.
The documents provide some insight into how the DNC handled high-profile donation scandals. But the choice of documents revealed to The Hill also provides insight into the enigmatic Guccifer 2.0.
The hacker provided a series of spreadsheets related to Norman Hsu, a Democratic donor jailed in 2009 for running a Ponzi scheme and arranging illegal campaign contributions. The DNC responded by assembling files to gauge the exposure from Hsu to its slate of candidates.
Similar files on Paul J. Magliocchetti, a lobbyist closely associated with the late Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), provide a quick reference document outlining Magliocchetti’s donations to Republicans. Magliocchetti pleaded guilty in 2010 to involvement in a pay-for-play campaign finance scheme.
