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.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Cannot Answer Question When Asked “Who Is The Leader Of The Democratic Party?” (VIDEO)
SHE COULD NOT ANSWER BECAUSE THERE IS NO LEADER OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY, ITS A RUDDERLESS SHIP …
How can it be that asking the question, who is the leader of the Democrat party be so difficult to answer? Such was the case for Nancy Pelosi when posed the question. Surprisingly, San Fran Nan could not even name herself. After all, she is the House Minority leader. In an attempt to answer this trick, gotcha question (sarcasm intended) she named former president Barack Obama, the man who lost the House, Senate, Governorships and state houses during his eight years and Hillary Clinton, the individual who lost a presidential election to a so-called unelectable opponent. The correct answer, there are no leaders. The Democrat party is in chaos with no direction, as the far LEFT socialist Bernie Sanders wing of the party battles the establishment.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — who regularly alternates ‘least popular Congressional leader’ championships with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer — was asked by Anderson Cooper about the state of the Democratic Party. Who is its leader, the host asked, indirectly referencing the reality that voters have relegated Democrats to minority status virtually everywhere but a small handful of states. The first two names to pop into Pelosi’s mind were an ex-president who decimated the party over his tenure in office, and a failed presidential candidate who managed to lose to an allegedly unelectable opponent. Plus there are some other people, and stuff:
NO BOOK WAS EVER MORE TRUE …
Micheal J. Knowles appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss his new book, that is #4 on Amazon, entitled “Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide.” It is a 266page book, but don’t worry, its a quick read. All pages of the book are blank. CLASSIC! Well, when one thinks about it, with the lack of vision and the direction that they want to take the country, the reason to vote Democrat really is a blank page.
To quote an excerpt from author Michael J. Knowles’ new book, the main reason to vote for a Democrat is “ .”
The above is not a typo.
Knowles’ tome, “Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide,” is 266 pages of absolutely nothing. Clean, blank, snow-white pages. And as of Thursday morning, it occupied the No. 4 slot on Amazon.com’s “Best Sellers” list.
“What’s really great about this book, you can go cover-to-cover in about 15, 20 seconds,” Knowles’ told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.
Billed as “the most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date,” the spoof book was Knowles’ attempt to razz the party for a lack of direction. The conservative journalist released it last month and the book was listed at $9.99 on Amazon — but you can pick up a paperback on sale for $7.08.
The project does, curiously, contain an extensive bibliography and a table of contents. But nothing else.
“It took a very long time to research this book,” Knowles said Thursday. “I’ve been observing the Democratic Party for at least 10 years now and when I observed their record and reasons to vote for them – on reasons of economics or foreign policy or homeland security or civil rights and so on – I realized it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank.”
A chapter on civil rights? Blank. Values? Nothing there.
BOYCOTT, WHAT BOYCOTT?
Despite a so-called boycott and Ivanka Trump’s fashion line being dropped by retail stores like Nordstrom’s, Belk and HSN, Ivanka’s fashion sales have skyrocketed. Honestly, who couldn’t see this coming. Ivanka’s clothing line was targeted by the far LEFT in an effort to attack the Trump family. Nordstrom’s and others like them that buckled to the political pressures of the LEFT are now the big losers. This is yet just another example of the far LEFT intolerance and their political extortion of business. Companies like Nordstrom’s can do as they please, they also must face the backlash and boycott of their company from those who do not agree with their choice.
Contrary to reports that shoppers are avoiding the first daughter’s fashion line to protest her father’s policies, the president of the company says recent sales are among the best in the brand’s history.
Abigail Klem, a former lawyer who has worked at Ivanka Trump HQ since 2013 and took over the role of company president in January, insisted that the brand has experienced a major boost.
“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand,” explained Klem to Refinery29.com. “For several different retailers Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the [brand’s] best performance ever.”
THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE LEFT, SO I AM GUESSING DEMOCRATS WILL BE ASKING SCHUMER TO RESIGN?
With all the insanity from the LEFT that there is a connection between Trump and the Russians, because the LEFT just cannot accept losing an election, what about this? From the Gateway Pundit comes this inconvenient flashback for Democrats where in 2003, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) met not only with the Russians, but Vladimir Putin, himself, in New York City.
More from NTK on this Schumer meeting with the Russians. Not Trump, but Chucky Schumer. So where are the calls for Schumer to resign as Democrat Senate Minority leader? Come on folks, this man has met with Putin. Oh the double standard and hypocrisy.
Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has talked quite tough on Russia as of late. In December, he said Trump’s team is “far too close to Russia,” and added “[b]oth parties ought to be united in standing up to Russian interference.”
Schumer hasn’t always been so tough on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In 2003, Schumer welcomed Putin to New York City as Russian oil company Lukoil opened a gas station in Manhattan.
The AP photo shows Putin and Schumer smiling, with coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The caption reads:
Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil, Friday.
Schumer also said that day:
“When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politic
