Awaiting Act II of the charade called “democracy”
Act II, of course, being the Democratic National Convention where the fix was in from the beginning for the chosen son, or in this case witch.
Everyone expected the RNC to be a circus, but this particular convention promises to take the cake. Thus the 4 mile fence they’ve built around the venue to keep the plebs at a distance.
So, Democratic voters, you really thought you had a role in all of this? Bwaahaaahahaha. You hadn’t a chance of deciding. Your vote was simply part of the stage props necessary in the attempt to keep the facade of “democracy” alive. The Superdelegates picked long before the first vote was cast had already decided the contest. You were window dressing.
And I have to tell you, I am loving the Wikileaks DNC email dump. Latinos are part of the “Taco Bowl” constituency. Just shut up, grab a burrito and vote for Hillary. They’ll ignore you later.
Meanwhile, it appears “Clinton, Inc.” is having a pre-move in sale:
The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.
“The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party,” Boehm told The Daily Caller.
“That is unethical, if not illegal.”
The claim now circulating is the DNC server was hacked by Russia. But Hillary’s server? As safe as the gold in Ft. Knox, rest assured.
What a world we live in. We have two of the worst candidates – that’s right, there is no “lesser of two evils” this time – running for a job in which they’ll each try to outdo the current worst president the US has ever suffered under.
As for the profession of “journalism”, you know what to expect:
At the beginning of the Republican National Convention last week, NBC Today co-host Matt Lauer confronted presidential nominee Donald Trump about dialing down the intensity of the passions percolating at the event. “Would you be willing to make a pledge to speak to everyone involved in this convention and say, ‘Please tone down the rhetoric’?” Lauer urged. “Can you say to the people who are going to take to that podium this week, ‘No personal attacks, no vitriol, keep it civil?”
The irony there is that political journalists themselves, Lauer included, have become as inflammatory as the politicians they lecture about incivility. In the aftermath of last month’s Orlando terrorist massacre at a gay nightclub, for example, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper badgered the increasingly offended Attorney General of Florida interminably about her stance on gay marriage. More recently, Fox News’ Shepherd Smith berated Gov. Bobby Jindal for using the “divisive” phrase “All lives matter.” CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, who wears her biases as openly as her keffiyeh, hammered away contentiously at British MP Daniel Hannan for nine minutes over the recent Brexit vote.
