In yet another slap in the face of the Democratic party, The Hill reports that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won’t officially join the Democratic Party even though he was appointed to a leadership position within the Senate Democratic caucus this week.
“I was elected as an Independent and I will finish this term as an Independent,” Sanders said at a breakfast Thursday morning hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
With the media exclusively attuned to every new, or 11-year-old as the case may be, twist in the Trump “sex tape” saga, it appeared that everyone forgot that a little over 24 hours ago, Wikileaks exposed the real reason why Hillary was keeping her Wall Street speech transcripts – which we now know had always been within easy reach for her campaign – secret. In her own words: “if everybody’s watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.” In other words, you have to lie to the general public while promising those who just paid you $250,000 for an hour of your speaking time something entirely different, which is precisely what those accusing Hillary of hiding her WS transcripts had done; and as yesterday’s hacked documents revealed, they were right.
The most important political moment of the night came when Sanders delivered the full-throated endorsement that the Clinton campaign had longed for.
“Any objective observer will conclude that — based on her ideas and her leadership — Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States,” Sanders told delegates, spurring a cascade of cheers.
There are three key findings to emerge from yesterday’s dump of leaked DNC emails released by Wikileaks:
There had been a plot designed to smear Bernie Sanders and to hand the Democratic nomination to Hillary on a silver platter
There has been repeated collusion between the DNC and the media
There has been questionable fundraising for both Hillary Clinton and the DNC
First, a quick recap for those who missed the original report, yesterday Wikileaks released over 19,000 emails and more than 8,000 attachments from the Democratic National Committee. This is what the whistleblower organization reported:
The U.S. Senate has supported a move to begin debate on the Roberts-Stabenow GMO labeling bill, also known as the new DARK Act, that would wipe out states’ ability to require GMO labeling and replace it with an ineffective federal program. Senators voted 65-32 in favor of advancing the misleading bill.
U.S. Presidential candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders, tweeted Wednesday; “The Stabenow-Roberts GMO bill is confusing, misleading and unenforceable. It does nothing to make sure consumers know what they’re eating.”
The article below epitomizes life during the Obama Presidency: “Whenever there’s a big story in the media, look for the story they’re trying to distract you from!” Claire Bernish does a great job highlighting 5 things the establishment slipped by most people while everyone was focusing solely on the Orlando shooting. I covered several of the ones listed below and many more in a recent video here, and there are links to plenty more at the bottom.
Arguably, the most serious of the stories ignored by the mainstream media is the massive voter fraud that has been detected in 11 states. The story is covered in the video below starting around the 3:30 mark.
By the yardstick used by the US government to identify fraud in foreign elections (a discrepancy of greater than 2% between election polls and exit polls), there is strong indication of fraud in Democrat primaries in 11 states. All the discrepancies favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. The Institute for American Democracy and Election Integrity is about to file a lawsuit alleging racketeering. We look at Edison Research Polling, the National Election Pool (NEP), electronic voting and mainstream media.
WOULD YOU EXPECT ANYTHING LESS FROM THE CLINTON’S?
The Free Though Project Writes:After any major tragedy, we develop an obsessive need to analyze, debate, and argue every conceivable aspect of what’s taken place — as if time stops. That tragedy dominates mainstream and, often, independent media headlines for days or weeks, exhaustively positing theory after theory until the public begins to lose interest.
But tragedy doesn’t occur in a vacuum, and — though it might feel as if the world pressed pause to allow society to grieve — important, pertinent issues continue to arise while our attention is trained elsewhere.
United States — While Bernie Sanders’ supporters and independent media outlets have exhaustively pointed out that corporate media’s fatuous prattling over Hillary Clinton likely tipped the elections in her favor, we now have solid proof — leaked emails show the DNC colluded with mainstream outlets to heavily favor Clinton.
“Our goals in the coming months will be to frame the Republican field and the eventual nominee early and to provide a contrast between the GOP field and HRC,” reads an email dated May 26, 2015, referencing the former secretary of state by her initials, posted by “Guccifer 2.0” — after the Romanian hacker who allegedly accessed Clinton’s private email server multiple times.
