The political corruption that we have all known to exist for many years used to at the very least put on a mask or even pretend to hide their devilish ways. Now it is being paraded down main street daring you to notice and fearing no action you may take. While the left throw mud at the right and the right throw it back, both parties have become so corrupt that even the most non political person is starting to see it. To be honest with you it has been like this for decades even longer. We are just now seeing it this brazen and openly. It is like they do not care if we see the fraud because the players know many will not do much beyond shake their heads or make a little noise. The two party system is cracking and the once non-interested-in-politics crowd is starting take heed.
While there is no doubt that we have seen the Republicans play dirty this election with the way they have treated the party favorite Donald Trump, the real in-house corruption is lighting up the Democratic Party and it couldn’t have picked a worst time to rear its ugly head. Just a day before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia is to kick off we are made aware of yet another scandal involving emails and that all familiar name that has become common place when talking about political corruption – Hillary Clinton.
Wikileaks has released 20,000 DNC emails that has confirmed many people’s suspicion all along and that was that the Democratic Party was on the take for Hillary Clinton to be the party’s Presidential nominee all along. Of course anyone who has followed politics for any amount of time has known for some time the corruption in the nomination process of primaries and even the general election. Wikileaks has said they will release more emails that will be sure to continue to bring Hillary under the corruption microscope.
Bernie Sanders, who is the big loser in all of this, has addressed his supporters and in a speech that brought boos from the crowd he reiterated the need to elect Hillary. His supporters are” feeling the Bern” and like a hot stove it is burning hot. The one time “revolution” that was started behind Bernie’s ideologies and platform has been exposed as nothing more that establishment rhetoric and Bernie, himself, is now exposed as nothing more than a pawn for the continued corruption he once was said to be against. Now his supporters are left wondering where to go from here. It seems both parties are distancing themselves from Hillary Clinton.
One thing that is certain is there will always be a scandal involving Hillary and this election cycle has proven to no disappoint. As a political blogger it is hard to even keep up with the corruption that swirls the Clinton name. What has destroyed and even imprisoned many seems to be just an inconvenience to this political powerhouse know as the Clintons. Many fear them and the latest to show them fear was the F.B.I. in there decision to not prosecute her over her private email server she operated as Secretary of State. Though James Commey has even said on many occasions that she broke the law, it was a reminder that laws apply to us peasants and not the Clintons.
The latest news coming out of the emails from the DNC is another validation for the “conspiracy theorist” that have been screaming voter fraud from the top of their lungs for decades. Yes, we have known this for decades and to us this isn’t a surprise, but par for the political course. We have seen this kind of activity from both parties and our voice has been silenced instead of heard and acted on. Now because of the ignorance and refusal to listen to the information it has bled over into the mainstream process.
As the emails are released and we are slowly sifting through them we have found many telling things about the way the DNC was approaching the Sanders’ revolution and how to get his supporters into the Clinton camp. The DNC under Debbie Wasserman Shultz’ leadership wanted to attack Bernie’s faith as a tactic to discredit him and help the diminish his rise in polls.
One email from DNC chief financial officer Brad Marshall read: “It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. 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 an atheist.” I guess they want separation of church and State unless it helps them when an election.
The leaked emails have gone on to touch on a number of other things suck as suggesting Bernie’s campaign was a mess and has failed. Though Bernie continued to consistently draw bigger crows at rallies and see a grassroots movement pick up much steam the DNC’s mission was to discredit the campaign in an effort to manipulate the results in Hillary’s favor.
Debbie Wasserman Shultz has resigned as the DNC Chairperson and reports have already surfaced that she has found a home on Hillary Clinton’s campaign team. That would make perfect sense that corruption that led to a resignation would have a spot on the dream team of corruption – Hillary’s campaign.
All eyes will be on Bernie tonight as he prepares to speak in Philadelphia at the convention. His supporters who stood by him in his fight against corruption will be vocal and they should be. He has given his support to Clinton and has even reiterated his support and his supporters are not happy. They stood by him to fight corruption, not fall to it in bowing adoration. One thing is certain and that is the convention I days ago could have cared less to watch now will have one more fewer. It is like watching a train derailment on t.v. You know it is tragic and devastating, but you just can’t seem to take your eyes off of it. Will the Bernie supporters continue to “Feel the Bern or will Hillary get the last laugh and make them all “Feel the Burn?”
