HEY BERNIE, IT WAS YOU WHO WERE BURNED IN THE END … EMAIL-GATE, PART DEUX
As reported at the NY Post, from thousands of DNC internal e-mails leaked via Wikileaks, Democratic Party official tried to use Bernie Sanders’ supposed religious beliefs to derail his presidential campaign. How does that Sanders endorsement look now of establishment candidate Hillary Clinton? All you Sanders supporters, how’s it feel to really bet burned and the shaft?
Sanders supporters … The Establishment candidate Hillary Clinton is literally laughing at all of you
The notorious hacker collective WikiLeaks dumped a massive trove of e-mails from the Democratic National Committee onto the Web Friday just as Hillary Clinton was preparing to celebrate her presidential nomination at the Democratic convention next week.
In the thousands of internal e-mails, it was revealed that a Democratic Party official tried to use Bernie Sanders’ supposed religious beliefs to derail his presidential campaign; one staffer pitched an idea for a phony sexist Trump ad and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz tried to score a staggering seven tickets to the Broadway smash “Hamilton.”
The suggestion of going after Sanders based on religion was included in one of 19,252 e-mails.
In one message dated May 5, 2016, with the subject line “No s–t,” the chief financial officer of the Democratic National Committee, Brad Marshall, plotted how to portray Sanders, who was raised Jewish in Brooklyn, as an atheist.
“It might [make] no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief,” Marshall wrote, apparently referring to Sanders and upcoming Kentucky and West Virginia primaries.
“Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage,’’ Marshall asked.
“I think I read he is an atheist.”
“This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and atheist.”
The chief executive officer at the DNC, Amy Dacey, responded with a single word: “Amen.”
HEY, LETS SEE HOW HARMONIOUS THE DEMOCRAT CONVENTION IS GOING TO BE NEXT WEEK AFTER EMAILS LEAKED BY WIKILEAKS …
Just ahead of next week’s Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia, ,PA comes 19,252 emails from the DNC leaked by Wikileaks. It is what we thought it was and much, much more. The DNC conspired with the MSM to sabotage Bernie Sanders during the Democrat primary so to aid Hillary Clinton. As reported at The Hill, Sanders supporters are none too happy.
Is it possible to have Email-gate II?
The leaked email prompted swift outcry online Friday afternoon. One apparent Sanders supporter tweeted: “HRC folks called Sanders “McCarthyite” & ranted about purity while DNC plotted to smear him as godless commie Jew.”
How dare the liberal MSM not follow in lockstep with the DNC … Wasserman Schultz Was FURIOUS With Mika Brzezinski Over Criticism.
As Red State opines, man some of these are great.
On Friday, website Wikileaks posted over 19,000 emails that were taken from the Democratic National Committee that show story manipulation and collusion with the MSM, internal attempts to sabotage Bernie Sanders during the primary, and a whole lot more.

BERNIE SANDERS, ATHEIST JEW
We all knew the party was working to help Hillary and burn Bernie, but now we have positive confirmation of some of the ways they did it. And one of those ways was to attack him on religious grounds. For serious.
Several of the emails released indicate that the officials, including Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, grew increasingly agitated with Clinton’s rival, Bernie Sanders, and his campaign as the primary season advanced, in one instance even floating bringing up Sanders’ religion to try and minimize his support.
“It might may [sic] no difference, but for KY and WA can we get someone to ask his belief,” Brad Marshall, CFO of DNC, wrote in an email on May 5, 2016. “Does he believe in God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My southern baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”
Amy Dacey, CEO of the DNC, subsequently responded “AMEN,” according to the emails.
After Losing Rigged Democrat Primary to Hillary Clinton … Bernie Sanders Vows to Fight on to the Philedalphia Convention
Hillary Clinton may have won the rigged Democrat primary that saw both the Democrat political establishment (super delegates) and the liberal MSMback her, however, it is socialist Bernie Sanders that has the energy behind him. Bernie found out just how rigged the primary process truly is was the AP called the nomination for Hillary Clinton before the California primary based on super delegates. UNREAL. Sanders vowed last night to his supporters to take their fight on to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Democrat National Convention. One thing I can see Bernie pushing for at the convention is an end to super delegates in the Democrat nomination process that is nothing more than a rigged system that gives the appearance the people are nominating the candidate.
“Next Tuesday we continue the fight. We are going to fight hard to win the primary in Washington, D.C., and then we take our fight for social, economic, racial and environmental justice to Philadelphia.”
So which party is it again that seems to have complete division again? Bernie Sander captured more primaries and caucuses than anyone could have ever imagined. Will Sanders supporters vote for Hillary? Or will they look elsewhere or stay home? Sanders’ campaign was a social movement, not a political campaign. Those that invested that much emotional capital would find it hard to just cast a vote for the other guy or gal.
Despite a night of disappointing losses, Bernie Sanders vowed Tuesday night to continue his campaign and to take his fight all the way to the convention in Philadelphia.While Hillary Clinton secured the delegates she needed Monday to become the presumptive presidential nominee, Sanders channeled the defiance of his supporters as he took the stage shortly before 11 p.m. PT.
The crowd was on edge — angry with the press and worried that he would give in to the growing pressure from Democratic leaders to bow out of the race.
But it wasn’t long before it became clear from his remarks that his “movement” — a campaign that has given Clinton more of a fight than anyone predicted and forced the
Democratic Party to the left — would carry on, at least through the final primary next Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
“All of you know that when we began this campaign over a year ago we were considered to be a fringe campaign. Over the last year I think that has changed a little bit,” he said as the crowd thundered with approval.
Hmm, and the MSM tried to paint the GOP races as the circus, it really looks like that belongs to the Democrat party …
The Des Moines Register writes, Iowa’s nightmare revisited: Was correct winner called? The worst thing happened Monday night for the Democrat party and that is the nightmare scenario played out live and in color, a tie between the establishment candidate Hillary Clinton and the self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. Making matters worse, the vote was so close that there is no way to ever know who really won because there is always some form of voter fraud of miscounting inherent in any vote. The division seems to be great among Democrats as the Sanders supporters chanted, “She’s a liar.” Hmm, that’s something you will not heat or see reported by the MSM, there is only turmoil among the GOP. The nightmare gets worse for Hillary and the establishment Democrat party, how is it possible that Hillary Clinton and her all-powerful team, the ultra-establishment candidate failed to win over Iowa caucus goers and lost a +50 point lead in Iowa to a 74 year old socialist candidate in Bernie Sanders?
It’s Iowa’s nightmare scenario revisited: An extraordinarily close count in the Iowa caucuses — and reports of chaos in precincts, website glitches and coin flips to decide county delegates — are raising questions about accuracy of the count and winner.
This time it’s the Democrats, not the Republicans.
Even as Hillary Clinton trumpeted her Iowa win in New Hampshire on Tuesday, aides for Bernie Sanders said the eyelash-thin margin raised questions and called for a review. The chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party rejected that notion, saying the results are final.
At 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Andy McGuire announced that Clinton had eked out a slim victory, based on results from 1,682 of 1,683 precincts.
Voters from the final missing Democratic precinct tracked down party officials Tuesday morning to report their results. Sanders won that precinct, Des Moines precinct No. 42, by two delegate equivalents over Clinton.
The Iowa Democratic Party said the updated final tally of delegate equivalents for all the precincts statewide was:
That’s a 3.77-count margin between Clinton, the powerful establishment favorite who early on in the Democratic race was expected to win in a virtual coronation, and Sanders, a democratic socialist who few in Iowa knew much about a year ago.
Can you imagine what Tuesday must have been like to be a part of Team Clinton? In 2008, the presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton lost to a candidate that no one had really heard from before by the name of Barack Obama. Now in 2016, Clinton stands once again as the overwhelming presumptive Democrat nominee and faces a real challenge from a 74 year old socialist who was never supposed to be much of a factor, let alone have a chance to win.
Thank you. Iowa, thank you. Nine months ago, we came to this beautiful state. We had no political organization; we had no money; no name recognition. And we were taking on the most powerful political organization in the United States of America.
And tonight while the results are still not known, it looks like we are in a virtual tie.
And while the results are still not complete, it looks like we’ll have half of the Iowa delegates. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Secretary Clinton, somebody — yep — and her organization for waging a very vigorous campaign.
And I want to thank Governor O’Malley. It’s never easy to lose. I’ve lost more than one campaign. But he should know that he contributed a whole lot to the dialogue, that he ran an issue-oriented campaign, and he won the respect of the American people. … If I think about what happened tonight, I think the people of Iowa have sent a very profound message to the political establishment, to the economic establishment, and, by the way, to the media establishment.
RUT-ROH … DSCC Pulls TV Advertising for Democrat Senate Challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes … VIDEO of Grimes – McConnell Senate Debate
Democrats waiving white flag in Kentucky Senate race …
Bad news for Democrats ahead of 2014 elections, the TV ads go dark from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for Kentucky Democrat Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has had a consistent lead in the polls and seems to be pulling away at the end, even after the DSCC has spent millions in ads. Put a fork in her, Grimes is done. In their Senate debate, challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes once again refused to answer the simple question of whether she voted for Barack Obama or not. She claimed her lack of a response was based on principle. I think we all know it was based on politics as Obama is very unpopular in the Blue Grass state and lost 60% to 38% to Romney in the 2012 presidential election.
After a significant investment in support of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the DSCC had not reserved time for the final three weeks of the race and, as of today, is no longer on the air.
DSCC Goes Dark in Kentucky
“The DSCC has now spent more than 2 million in Kentucky and continues to make targeted investments in the ground game while monitoring the race for future investments, but is currently not on the air in the state,” a DSCC official told CQ Roll Call.
Democrats pulled their TV advertising in Kentucky from now through election day, leaving Senate hopeful Alison Lundergan Grimes without air support from the national party, which had invested heavily in trying to unseat the Senate’s top Republican.
It’s a sign of how stretched Democrats are in defending their own turf across the country that they can no longer afford to go on offense in the marquee race against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
But Grimes sources insist they’ll be fine on their own. The campaign, sources said, is flush with $4.4 million cash on hand — much more than other Democrats on the ballot this year.
“Money is not an issue in this campaign,” a Grimes source said.
Note to Grimes, yes money is the only thing in a campaign when you are the challenger and the Democrats have claimed they have more than the GOP and plan to carpet-bomb the airwaves with political ads.
