Democratic National Convention Rocked By DNC Chair Wasserman’s Resignation on Day One: What A Way to Start the Show

Well, God bless Wikileaks. Once again Julian Assange’s renown hacker-sleuth team has outed some serious rottenness in our government, this time by way of showing the world what DNC staffers were emailing each other about candidate Bernie Sanders all this past year, while the still vigorous 70-something was working his ass off all over the country, building a movement, with every intention of becoming the presumptive democratic nominee. If Bernie Sanders is not at this moment one of the most bitter men in modern politics [ rivaling even the bitterness of Ted Cruz ] then he should be. Because he got CHEATED on a scale that’s pretty breathtaking. I would compare what the DNC did to Bernie as like unto a prominent national bank stealing from it’s own top depositors, while assuring them that their funds are indeed FDIC insured. It’s JUST NOT SUPPOSED to HAPPEN.

Cited: Lingering bitterness from the heated primary campaign between Clinton and Sanders erupted after more than 19,000 Democratic National Committee emails, leaked on Friday, confirmed Sanders’ frequent charge that the party played favorites in the race.

DNC chair Debra Wasserman Schultz has been implicated, and she is to resign. She has also been pulled as a keynote speaker at this week’s DNC Convention.

Even though I am neither a socialist, nor a Sanders supporter [ I’m with #Trump all the way ] it’s been amazing to watch Bernie build a national coalition which is almost large enough to rival Trump’s, putting to shame the actual paltry number of people who really support Hillary Clinton and plan to vote for her.  When Hillary holds a rally and less than 500 people show up, that SHOULD be news in and of itself. It’s a telltale litmus test that she has no real groundswell of support.

But since we all know that @CNN and @MSNBC are mostly dedicated to getting her elected, while suppressing all support for Donald Trump, no one has bothered to report this important ACTUAL real news to the American people, who urgently need to know about it. By contrast, Bernie Sanders rallies have drawn crowds of young people 20,000 to 30,000 strong – literally hundreds of times the number of attendees that Hillary rallies draw. It got so bad by late last year and this winter news cameramen refused to pan the crowds at any Hillary rally – keeping their cameras squarely fixed on her as she spoke. That’s because there WERE NO CROWDS in attendance. Go looking online anywhere on the internet and see if you can locate photos of Hillary Clinton speaking to more than a few hundred people. You won’t find them because they do not exist. Fascinating fact, huh?

But you would never have known any of this to read excerpts from several DNC staff emails. One staffer stated in an email, which was included in the DNC Wikileaks dump:

“This story is silly. Bernie Sanders will never be president.” – DNC staff email excerpt from the Wikileaks dump

So, just how bad is it? The Wikileaks dump is a jaw-dropper. Many many very ugly truths were brought to light, including animal abuse to raise money for DNC coffers, homophobia, and more. Follow the links below. Full list courtesy of The Gateway Pundit website:

“The hacked emails revealed the DNC’s hatred for Bernie Sanders and his movement. The documents reveal the party’s hidden ties with the liberal media. The emails reveal the heights of dishonesty of the party infrastructure.

Here’s a list of a few of the most shocking emails released by Wikileaks.
The list was compiled thanks to the work of Reddit Bernie Sander supporters and Donald Trump supporters:

Below are several screenshots of some DNC email segments. One phrase that stood out in the first image was “planted the story” – confirming what news bloggers like me have long held, that media outlets “pepper” their internet news sites and news broadcasts with certain types of stories when they want to BEND public opinion and perception in a certain way. The phrase “planted the story” confirms this fact.

Bernie’s personal religious beliefs were also discussed:

So one can imagine, as rabid as Bernie’s coalition is, that they have now taken to the streets of Philadelphia in numbers. It’s a motley crew of #BLM protestors, #SEIU employees, #GREENParty people, mom and pop uber-liberals, college students, college drop-outs, PINK party women and girls, neo-Black Panthers and just about every other non-conservative and very angry liberal political group who wants to take over the country and create a full fledged socialist revolution which would make Fidel Castro proud. Here are some photos from the front lines:

Senator Ted Cruz Cannot Stop Being a Horse’s Ass – No Matter What.

Politics is not only a blood sport in America, it’s a mobster’s game of nerves, cunning and complex psychological calculations. Those who can out-calculate their peers, will win most often. Those who fail to make the right move at the perfect moment, often lose and lose badly. The accumulated detritus of those career losses often do not show up for many years. Just like the beloved elephant icon of the GOP, who never forgets, I doubt many will forget what took place last night on the 2016 GOP convention floor.

All evening last night I sat in amazement in front of my Twitter feed, watching the steady stream of conservative American outrage pour onto the site, after Senator Ted Cruz refused to endorse front runner and GOP nominee Donald Trump at the end of his speech on the 2016 #GOPConvention floor.

Forget all circumspect thought as to paving a smoother road into one’s own political future. Forget patriotism and altruistic love of country, the Republican party, the state of Texas and a Texan’s personal state pride. Forget all hope of obtaining a coveted cabinet post in the new Trump administration as it congeals right after his election [ which WILL take place.] Mr. Cruz is so hopelessly, helplessly narcissistic that he could not bring himself to save his own political and professional future by just DOING THE RIGHT THING for once, and endorsing the man who beat him so soundly in the 2016 primaries that it made American history.

Cruz’s very lame explanation for his refusal to endorse is that Trump had attacked his family during the primaries. He seems to have conveniently forgotten [ or just omitted ] the fact that it was he, Mr. Ted Cruz, who began that spat by attacking Trump’s wife, Melania, first. And so it goes in American politics.

Donald Trump received more votes during the 2016 presidential primary season than any candidate in American history, including Ronald Reagan and Mitt Romney. This is not a disputable or arguable fact. Go look it up if you must. He has re-invigorated an aging, ailing, stale GOP which hasn’t put forth an exciting candidate relevant since the sassy Alaskan Sarah Palin strutted her stuff across the stage in 2008 as John McCain’s running mate. [ Mrs. Palin had the stage presence and pizazz, but she lacked the experience and political street smarts needed to maneuver her career into her own political candidacy for president after 2008.]

Would it have just KILLED YOU, Ted, to go ahead and endorse the man, so we could all get on with the business of getting him to the White House in time to avert World War Three and/or a global economic collapse?  For God’s sake. Narcissism REALLY IS a professionally fatal, personally terminal disease.

Even this morning, after having been quickly escorted off the GOP convention grounds last night by security, as furious crowds turned on him, drawing close enough to land a few blows, Mr. Cruz remained defiant at a breakfast forum press conference, arguing with the furious crowd as they shouted him down, demanding that he shut up and “Sit down!”

Mr. Trump has apparently taken all of this in stride, although the look on his face and his family’s faces last night gave away their sheer disgust and disappointment. The Donald tweeted:

When it became apparent Cruz was once again using a big stage to whine and serve his own purposes rather than unite the party, he got booed right off the stage. And then Donald Trump sent out a tweet telling his supporters it was “No big deal!”

At the tender age of 60, I’ve been around long enough to see some conventions come and go, along with many many political candidates. I’ve observed with keen interest as their fortunes rose and fell, or sometimes, just quietly evaporated like a puddle in the sun. But until last night I’ve never seen a man so publicly politically ignite, then combust with such suddenness, as Mr. Cruz did. To hell with his family, his state, his position in Washington. To hell with his own career, his personal and political future. He was going down in flames in front of every conservative American who cares and watches politics. He would steadfastly REFUSE to endorse the man most likely to become the next president, no matter what it was going to cost him.

Almost immediately the cost of making that decision began to boil up on social media. Today it boiled over. I don’t believe a career counselor, wise spouse, or psychiatrist can do anything to save Ted Cruz from being who he really is. He’s a bonafide horse’s ass, and now we all see that quite clearly.

I believe Mr. Cruz’s days are now numbered as a relevant force in the conservative circles of American politics. Who knows how he’ll spend his future? I really don’t see him being re-elected to the Senate. Not after last night. He can always spend his days tapping golf balls around the putting green with Mitt Romney and John McCain. But he’s always going to famously MISS that easy 2 foot putt.

Viva Las Vegas! Donald Trump Wins Nevada Caucus by a Whopping 46%, Mainstream Media Has a Coronary

I waited until after the definitive South Carolina GOP primary win by Trump to make my final decision about supporting Donald Trump for president. I had to make sure that what was happening was REAL. And it is. He’s not perfect. No man is. But he now represents the very best bet we have in this country to make it abundantly clear to the hidden ruling elites that everyday Americans aka “the silent majority” are sick and tired of being handed our DNC and GOP candidates on a pre-selected “Illuminati platter” every election cycle. He’s also the very best bet we have to face down a 19 trillion dollar deficit and beat back a humiliating looming national bankruptcy. He just happens to also be our very best bet to actually SECURE our borders and put right an “illegal immigrants run amuck” strategy cooked up by the Obama administration in order to add more million of democratic voters to the stack the deck unfairly. And he’s the very best bet we have to rebuild the crumbling busted up infrastructure of the country and start putting people back to work again. Donald Trump is the right man, at the right moment, for all the right reasons.

But don’t try to tell that to the stunned and outraged mainstream media pundits and talking heads from CNN, MSNBC and FOX. They have been going out of their minds trying to explain “how this could possibly be” for 24 hours nonstop, since it happened. Some of the sickest, most shameful, most disgraceful moments in American television history have taken place – live – on the air – in the past 24 hours since Trump won Nevada. I thought Brian Williams was going to either choke to death or break down sobbing as he sat with Rachel Maddow, sputtering, trying to find a way to explain what has clearly become THE TRUMP PHENOMENON. CNN pundits were no better. Van Jones, who openly despises Donald Trump, wasted no time in saying everything he could think of to not only try to minimize the win, but to try to literally cancel it out with harsh words. David Axelrod followed suit. Both men are professional ‘plants’ from the first administration of the Obama White House [ you can Google them ]  and have cleared been hired to CNN as “pundits” [ I use the term loosely ] to oversee the continuation of the Obama / Illuminati plan to dismantle the American middle class, carry on the make-believe, and make sure Hillary gets elected to continue into the 9th year of the Obama era. Guess what Van, David? It’s not going to happen.

Meanwhile, over on FOX news, pundits and experts were muttering and sputtering trying to explain why neither Cruz or Rubio could carry the Hispanic vote. They could not come up with reasons, only ridiculous theories and rants about “the anger” of the American people, trying to cite a recent figure of speech Trump had used as a political weapon against him. It was truly pathetic. The muttering and sputtering only got louder. Never in the history of the country, in my own lifetime, can I recall a moment when TV experts so miserably failed to comprehend the will of the American people, and behaved so poorly in response to a clear and ringing indicator that what we are seeing here is a REAL movement of the people, as opposed to a glossy polished and well buffed “fake political messiah” campaign being crammed down people’s throats like what happened in 2008 with “the selling of Obama” to the American people by the hidden powers that be.

Finally, Glenn Beck, who has gone fully out of his mind in his foaming hatred of Donald Trump, had the gates crashed at one of his speaking events, when the Donald himself walked into the room, immediately dismantling the “Donald hate speech” while hundreds of people rushed to meet and greet him, ignoring Glenn. The loud whop heard in the room was the sound of Glenn’s jaw hitting the floor. So much for the credibility of Glenn Beck. And by the way, Glenn Beck has ALWAYS secretly wanted to run for president and his tirades against Donald are nothing more than sheer envy and jealousy.

If you are a reader and you are infuriated that I am voting for him, you know where the door is. Today I am celebrating the HOPE that we might yet be able to turn things around in our country before it’s too late. I’m really happy that a REAL populist movement is stirring in America to elect a man [ for once ] who represents the will of the American people, as opposed to Bernie Sanders’ fake socialist movement which will only tax the country into utter ruin in order to give away free college tuition.

Today, I say: Viva Las Vegas!

Donald Trump 46%

Marco Rubio 23%

Ted Cruz 21.4%

Cited:  Donald Trump on his victory: “Tonight we had forty-five, forty six per cent.” The counting, when he spoke, was in the early stages, but he turned out to be just about right—he got 45.9 per cent—with Rubio at 23.9 per cent and Cruz at 21.4, the same order as in South Carolina. (Ben Carson got five per cent, and Kasich, the object of many moderate fantasies, about three.) Trump did even better with moderates than with those voters who said that they were very conservative, though he won both groups, according to exit polls. Trump continued, “And tomorrow you’ll be hearing, You know, if they could just take the other candidates and add ’em up, and if you could add ’em up.”

Jeb Burned Through 120 Million Dollars in Six Months, Donors Now Furious. Trump Has Spent Almost Nothing, Leads by a Landslide.

Jeb raised more money than any other candidate running on either side last year. Then he burned through every bit of it in six months and never placed above 5-6% in any primary. What a colossal waste of donor money. What a final heartbreak for Mitt Romney as well. Romney might have run one last time, but Jeb’s people flew out west last year and bought him off then bought all his former campaign staff last summer to come work for Jeb. Can’t Buy me Love, Jeb. [ Exclamation point now turned upside down 😦 ]

The word “decadence” is not a word one usually associates with the business of running for president. But I think it might apply when looking at the Jeb Bush 2016 presidential campaign. This campaign season is shattering almost all establishment notions about presidential elections. Nothing that held true in the past is holding water, or holding anything at all this year. A complete political outsider with zero campaign experience, who is spending almost NO money, is turning the entire process into a textbook clinic on how to upset the status quo and shake the foundations of the GOP: Donald Trump.

In so doing, Trump is also giving the nation a really good look at his general day to day fiscal disposition overall. The common sense frugality of his campaign spending is not just laudable, it’s outstanding. He’s teaching the entire nation a lesson on how to run for president – as well as pointing out how NOT to run for president.  It’s not right to try to “buy your way in” and we all know that. But they have been doing for decades. Is it possible that the dirty rotten money machine behind American presidential elections might finally have a crack in it’s engine block? I hope so.

Have a look at Trump’s ad spending numbers [$216,000] vs. Jeb’s [32.5 million dollars]. It’s enough of a stunning spectacle of a difference to make you have to go sit down and just think about it for a while. Wow.

Meanwhile, for those who always believed that the biggest war chest would pave the way to the White House: witness Jeb Bush. The Bush campaign shamelessly burned through more than 120 million dollars since last summer, and Jeb couldn’t pull more than 3% in any early primary. It’s been a stunning comeuppance for Bush and his entire family, not to mention the Super PAC ‘Right to Rise’ that sponsored him and about 11,000 stunned angry donors.  Alot of people got seriously ripped off here. It’s no wonder they are not happy.

Campaign strategist Mike Murphy took a 14 million dollar paycheck after burning though 120+ million dollars in donations for Jeb Bush. Bush never even got out of the starting gate. Sounds more than a little bit slimy.

Campaign strategist Mike Murphy is now feeling the heat over the squandered millions. He walks away with 14 million dollars. So how does all that work anyway? The guy who helps you fail gets a handsome paycheck for doing so? How is that remotely fair to those donors?  And where did all the money go?

“Another big loser tonight: Mike Murphy,” tweeted conservative commentator Erick Erickson.

One Bush bundler told CNN’s Dana Bash that when it came to Murphy, “strong knives are out.”

“He made minimum of $14 million,” the bundler said, requesting anonymity to speak freely about campaign strategy.

It got so bad by the time the pathetic Jeb! camp rolled into Iowa that they were literally PAYING PEOPLE to go and fill seats at his events. This is an all time low in politics, as far as I am concerned:

Iowa flyer used by the Jeb! campaign to pay people to go and sit at his speeches and events. The shame, the shame…

Maybe, just maybe, the Jeb Bush 2016 embarrassment might be the beginning of a new era in American politics, where it literally becomes true that “money can’t you love” – and that it also becomes true that the biggest war chest gets DOESN’T always get go live in the White House, where the stakes are 1,000 times higher when it comes to fiscal sobriety, balancing budgets, whittling down our deficit, and living within our means as a nation.

We don’t need any more spendaholics running the country.  I know that everyone in my own close circle feels the same way I do about this.  BIG MONEY buying the White House is ruining our political process, corrupting our national elections, and eroding the fiscal fabric of the country. Putting a skilled and financially circumspect businessman into the oval office [ for a change! ] is the smartest thing America can do at this juncture to bring financial responsibility back to the governance of our nation. The last 16 years of reckless government spending has brought the country to the brink of financial ruin. Enough.

Even if Donald Trump does make the wrong comment once in a while, he’s got more business sense and fiscal intuition than all the other candidates combined, especially Jeb. That’s EXACTLY what this tattered bankrupt country needs right now. I’m voting for him. I’ve made up my mind.
