If secrecy, lies, perjury, corruption, and end-runs around the law weren't enough...now, we have the ultimate in democratic corruption.
Hacked emails from the Democratic Party show election rigging, collusion, and corruption at the highest levels.
Emails document how DNC party officials questioned about:
"Whether they should raise doubts about the Sanders campaign."
One senior official says:
"Wonder if there's a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never had his act together, that his campaign is a mess."
Another official stated:
"Does he believe in a G-d. He had skated as saying that he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps [people]."
Even Sanders' campaign manager said that the emails showed that party officials were:
"Planting negative stories about him with religious leaders in various states [to rig the election towards the former First Lady]."
This is a clear case of conspiracy--and I do not use this word lightly--where the election was being steered by a corruption-infected system towards a certain candidate denying the actual will of the people and their rightful candidate choice.
Ah, so much for a fair and just democracy.
The Democratic National Convention starts on Monday, and it looks like they will be celebrating their corruption not only in terms of a system rigged with superdelegates, but where collusion and political narrative thrive and the political opposition, Bernie Sanders, never even had any chance, let alone a fair and democratic one.
Where is the accountability of these officials--are they too above the law as is their candidate.
No candidate for election should have a tacit nod of consent and support from officials and definitely should not be put in place when not in line with the will of the people!
We do not live in a dictatorship, in totalitarianism, in fascism--or perhaps, we most sadly do.
It is incredible hypocrisy that we send election monitors around the globe to police and ensure fair elections, but here at home, we can't seem to effectively police our own system for fairness.
The election for president in the exemplary democracy of the world, the U.S.A, should not have the powerful, the elites, the 1%, control who is elected to office.
The situation has gone from bad to worse with serious allegations of:
- Vanishing global moral "red lines"
- Shady deals with our sworn "Death To America" enemies
- Laughter at murderous terrorist attacks
- Shutting of the eyes at the killing of police officers
- Money-laundering from private foundations
- Private servers exposing state secrets
- Election rigging
These are a treachery and a desertion of our very democracy, and unfortunately the fire of corruption is still burning in our beloved America while the convention just begins. ;-)
