  • New Poll: 47 Percent Of Voters Think Clinton Rigged The Primaries

    "The polling data is interesting, and confirms what many critics have been saying for years: the political class is out-of-touch with the average American citizens. In many ways they live in a different world, insulated from the economic and social realities of mass migration. For example, 65 percent of Americans believe that America’s quality of life has deteriorated since the 1960s, and many feel like “strangers in their own land”. This feeling is clearly not shared by Washington’s elites, who foist ever more immigration on the American people. Likewise, consider the great divergence of public opinion over the destruction of...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the purported victim of the DNC's rigged 2016 primary, has jotted down some thoughts on the Donna Brazile bombshell in a new op-ed. Brazile, the former acting DNC chair, released an excerpt from her new book "Hacks" last week detailing how the DNC already had side fundraising agreements with Hillary Clinton. She recalled being sick to her stomach having to call Sanders and tell him how the DNC was seemingly working behind the scenes for his opponent. In his response, Sanders, who had an inspired run against Clinton that lasted months longer than expected (many young...
  • Brazile: I Found 'No Evidence' That Dem Primaries Were 'Rigged'

    Donna Brazile, the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), on Sunday said she found no evidence “whatsoever” that the 2016 primary process was “rigged.” “I found no evidence, none whatsoever,” Brazile said on ABC News’ “This Week.” Brazile claimed the only thing she found “was this memorandum that prevented the DNC from running its own operation.” In a piece in Politico on Tuesday, Brazile accused Hillary Clinton’s campaign of exerting improper financial and decision-making control over the DNC before she won the party’s nomination. Asked on Sunday to comment on Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) claim that the 2016 Democratic primary was rigged for Clinton,...

    The Washington Post reported new details from Donna Brazile’s forthcoming book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House, that include the fact that the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee considered replacing Hillary Clinton as the Democratic party’s 2016 presidential candidate.Following Clinton’s bizarre collapse during the 2016 9/11 memorial ceremony, Brazile seriously considered choosing either Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey as the party’s presidential nominee. Brazile does not hold back her criticism of the campaign, palpably describing it as having “an odor of failure.”...
  • OBAMA GETS BLAMED FOR CLINTON-SANDERS ‘RIGGING’ SCANDAL THAT’S ROCKED DEMOCRATIC PARTY

    **SNIP** Following his 2012 election victory, Obama had a “lack of interest in the DNC” and “didn’t need it anymore,” which led to former party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz keeping her top position, according to a Friday report on the Daily Beast. Furthermore, the report states Obama did not immediately start fundraising to erase debt left over from his 2012 campaign. Obama moved one of his top operatives, Patrick Gaspard, to the DNC in 2011, but after the election Gaspard was tapped to be ambassador to South Africa. Following his departure, “the White House lost interest in the DNC," according...

    Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile writes in a new book that she seriously contemplated replacing Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.” In an explosive new memoir, Brazile details widespread dysfunction and dissension throughout the Democratic Party, including secret deliberations over using her powers as interim DNC chair to initiate the process of removing Clinton and running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) from the ticket after Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2016, collapse...

    Former 2016 Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said the campaign and the Democratic National Party did not work together to rig the primary in an interview Friday night with CNN's Anderson Cooper. He said the idea that the DNC could rig a contest "frankly is laughable." Mook also noted that contests that were run by the national party such as the Iowa caucus, Bernie Sanders "won overwhelmingly." However, responding to Sanders campaign adviser Jeff Weaver's complaint that it was "pretty clear" the DNC was on the Clinton side, Mook said "politics is politics." On interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile's claim...

    The clock is ticking on the only vehicle capable of resisting Trumpism. I will go to my grave convinced that the 2016 Democratic primary process was the single most depressing political event I ever witnessed. The Republicans at least had a thin, bright edge of insanity that kept things from getting utterly tedious. (I never will forget waking up on the morning of the Indiana primary to discover that the president* had tried to pin the Kennedy assassination on Ted Cruz’s father. Most primary days are a dull as dishwater until they start counting the votes. This one wasn’t.) But...

    Hillary Clinton has spent a year crying about how the presidency was stolen from her. Turns out, she stole the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders. The stunning revelation from former Democratic National Committee interim chairperson Donna Brazile that Clinton secretly rigged the primary process by commandeering the DNC should come as no surprise to anyone. Clinton is nothing, if not unethical and corrupt. She always has been. This is precisely why pre-election polls consistently showed that a majority of Americans found her dishonest and untrustworthy. The critical question now is whether she committed crimes in her theft of the nomination....

    On Thursday, Politico published two helpful reminders of the Democrats' existence. Both stories reinforced the idea that, despite the ongoing tumult in the Republican Party, it is actually the Democratic Party that has been most disrupted by the realignment of American politics along class lines. Not that the Democrats, or Washingtonians in general, seem aware of this fact. The first article, by Donna Brazile, described a secret arrangement by which Hillary Clinton exercised control over the Democratic National Committee months before voting began in the Democratic presidential primary. "The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and...

Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “I will be frank with you,” she said. “If I was trying to rig the outcome of the primary, trust me, I could have — there are so many things that we, not I, we could have done to enhance the campaign of one candidate over another.”

    President Trump doubled down on his call for the Justice Department to investigate Democrats on Friday after a former Democratic National Committee chair acknowledged the party tipped the scales in Hilary Clinton's favor during last year's primary. Trump told reporters outside the White House that he is “disappointed” in the Justice Department for not investigating Clinton, reiterating that he believes the agency should do something. “I’m really not involved with the Justice Department. I’d like to let it run itself, but honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats," he said. “They should be looking at Podesta and all of...

    Wait a second: isn't Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer the savviest guy in Washington, the super-smart Harvard grad, the ultimate political insider? So if anyone would know about DNC finagling in favor of Hillary Clinton, it would be her fellow New Yorker, Schumer: right? Nope! Turns out Chuck is a delicate flower, unaware of the corruption surrounding him in the DNC cesspool. Morning Joe aired today a clip from Kasie Hunt's interview of Schumer. Slumped in his chair, his voice barely above a whisper, Schumer had the chutzpah to deny any knowledge of the way the DNC rigged things for...

This afternoon, CNN’s Jake Tapper interviewed Senator Elizabeth Warren and asked her about the DNC story. When Tapper asked Warren if she was shocked by the story, she went into a statement about...

    Clinton blames Sanders for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ attack By Jonathan Easley - 09/05/17 11:09 AM EDT Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is blaming Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for doing “lasting damage” to her campaign and “paving the way” for President Trump’s attack against her as “Crooked Hillary.” According to excerpts of Clinton’s new campaign tell-all book, “What Happened,” Clinton claims that she wanted to fight back against Sanders’s characterization of her as beholden to corporate influence but that then-President Obama and others advised her to stay quiet. “Throughout the primaries, every time I wanted to hit back against Bernie’s...

    According to excerpts that have surfaced online, Clinton accused Sanders of resorting to “innuendo and impugning my character” during the contentious primary because the Democratic socialist “couldn’t make” a policy argument against her. “Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign,” Clinton wrote. Clinton’s book -- "What Happened” – isn’t set for release until Sept. 12. But several supporters who obtained the book have published early purported excerpts on social media. In the book, the former Democratic presidential nominee compared Sanders to the...

    Ardent supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) lashed out at the Democratic Party establishment and threatened to bail on the party after a federal judge in Florida dismissed a class-action suit Friday alleging that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) illegally favored Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over Sanders. The DNC’s treatment of Sanders, who switched his party affiliation to run in the 2016 Democratic primaries, came under scrutiny after the 2016 hack into the DNC’s servers revealed that key party officials favored the more traditional Clinton over the progressive Sanders. But on Friday, Ronald Reagan appointee Judge William Zloch dismissed...

    Ominous signs of a power struggle in the Democratic Party are emerging. The repercussions could spill over into the 2020 presidential election and whomever the Democrats select as their nominee. That in turn could spell disaster for the party’s chances. Campaign donors to far left socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders are angry. They feel the 2016 primary elections in their party were “rigged,” and there is ample proof they are right. They are using the law to make their point loud and clear. The class action lawsuit alleges that the now-disgraced Debbie Wasserman Schultz-led Democratic National Committee worked in conjunction...
