The country is shocked, shocked that the DNC colluded with the Hillary campaign to anoint her as their nominee. In her 2015 caper, Clinton made a backroom deal with the DNC. In 2008, Barack Obama used outright election fraud and thuggery, the tried and true Chicago methods. to steal the nomination directly from the voters. When he got far enough, the DNC pressured Hillary’s pledged superdelegates to violate their voters’ wishes and award Obama an unearned victory. Obama’s illegal shenanigans in the 2008 Democrat primaries were far worse than Clinton’s – and will never be widely reported. It’s an odd experience

I remember in 2008 thinking that Hillary had it all wrapped up and the nomination was a lock and then, seemingly out of nowhere, comes Barack Obama and Hillary was suddenly an also ran. It looked fishy then and lo and behold, it was. Imagine my shocked face.
And this is why one should get government at all levels OUT of the primary/nomination process. Open the ballots for an "open primary", require petitions with reasonable numbers/distribution of signatures for ballot inclusion, remove party affiliation from the ballot, place names in random order, and the top two get a run-off if no one reaches the magic 50% plus one for election to the office. Best of all, this ballot reform costs virtually nothing to implement.
The left has only themselves to blame for Hillary´s first loss. In their heretofore successful attempt to lock up the black vote, they provided an impenetrable shield to protect them from nearly any crime - short of those that were caught on camera showing the perp in the commission thereof. OJ Simpson comes to mind- despite the solid facts, in his heinous crime. The New Black Panthers (even with the photos) and the literally hundreds of trespasses of Mac Daddy Long Legs since his early days in Chicago politics. It´s going to take a LONG time to reverse this , ask BLM or Colin Kapernic.
These are interesting stories, but lets not lose sight of the RNC. They foisted their boy McCain and their boy Romney on us and pushed all others to the side. After all, McCain and Romney were company men who knew where their orders were coming from. Then the voters had the absolute audacity to ignore their betters and reject Heb and all the lesser establishment hacks. The RNC masters pulled out all the stops to give the nomination to ANYONE but Trump, then when he got the nomination anyway they tried to give the election to the Hildebeast. They are no different than the democrats, just not as good at it.
The article lacks facts. Here are some. Barack won the Iowa primary with Chicago residents who showed up at the caucuses. (Iowa only requires an affirmation by a caucus goer that they will be Iowa residents by the November general election.) The media folks knew about John Edwards´s mistress, but kept it quiet. (Hillary came in third in Iowa, would have defeated Barack had the voters known about Edwards heartless behavior.) Hillary won Michigan and Florida primaries, but the DNC said they would not seat those delegations at the convention. Hillary probably won Texas, but the media said Barack won.
What is most comforting is knowing that whatever a Democrat does to get nominated, elected or while in office is never ever illegal! That´s the definition of a Banana Republic. We have become the United States of the Banana Republic. Nothing will be done to obama or hillary period. The most despicable, immoral, duplicitous bunch since the country was founded!
It was their "turn," doncha know! McPain didn´t want to win, he just wanted to run. He and Dole were perpetually running for the nomination, only so they could whine about losing to the LSM when someone else won. They reminded me of the bratty kid brother constantly knocking on the door of his sister´s slumber party and passing gas in retaliation when they wouldn´t let him join the fun!! Thats why neither knew what to do with the nomination once they actually had it!!
Budding Hollywood actresses do not have to rely on semi-naked fat dudes in expensive hotels for acting tips. Not anymore. Real-life examples of real-life emotions such as despair, abandonment, anguish, and betrayal are easy to find if you know where to look – e.g., local stories of black-on-white violence. Let´s start with some backstory in Chicago. During last year´s election for the Chicago version of district attorney, Kim Foxx was not hiding anything. With loads of cash from George Soros and lots of support from Black Lives Matter, she bragged about how, under her watch, she was going to stop over-policing, halt
It is worth noting that when he went overseas as a USO performer accompanied by Leann Tweeden in December 2006, Al Franken was not professionally identified as a “comedian” – as virtually every current media account has branded him. He was preparing for a run for political office by conducting the flagship program for Air America, the vanguard of the Left’s plan to deprive conservatives of their talk radio dominance. Am I the only person who remembers what a huge and embarrassing fiasco that was? It is not surprising that the mainstream media have consigned it to the memory hole,
Politics, it is often said, is hardball. But sometimes even Major League Baseball pitchers lob a slow floater right over the plate, all but offering the other team for a home run for the taking. Something metaphorically like that sort of pitch has come AG Jeff Sessions’s way, thanks to a Department of Justice Inspector General’s Report. Richard Pollock of the Daily Caller News Foundation spotted it: More than 100,000 convicted felons or other “prohibited persons” tried to buy guns each year during President Barack Obama’s administration by lying on their applications, but the Justice Department only considered prosecuting about 30
Another thought-leading progressive publication has connected the dots, and realized that Bill Clinton cannot be allowed to skate on his abuse of women. In The Atlantic, Caitlin Flanagan writes a political history of the feminist movement and Bill Clinton’s sexual predation. The sub-headline says it all: Feminists saved the 42nd president of the United States in the 1990s. They were on the wrong side of history; is it finally time to make things right? (snip) The feminist wing of the progressives is on its way toward applying the new standards to Bill and eventually his enabler, Hillary. It will take a
An avalanche of mass defections of advertisers from Sean Hannity’s Fox News program appears to have been staunched – at least for the present. Over the weekend, initially five, and then more, major sponsors were about to bolt. On Monday, the CEO of the company in the forefront of the defections, Keurig, apologized for his company’s threat to quit running its commercials on Hannity’s show. With that move, the tide against Hannity appeared to be turning. At least that is how Hannity positioned the news. Monday was a day of fast-breaking developments, with Hannity’s fans, social media, and Hannity’s four hours
If one reads the original Washington Post article on Judge Moore’s supposed harassment of underage “girls” with an open mind, one will conclude that Judge Moore is completely innocent, and that he is the victim of Fake News. (snip) read the Post article and assume that the reporters wrote the exact truth about what four human females told them (a big assumption, I grant). Then three of the four claim that Roy Moore dated them when they were women, not girls. And not only did they themselves consent to dating Moore, their families consented to their dating Moore. (Actually, according
On Friday, Sean Hannity reignited efforts by enemies of his on the left to take him off the air via putting pressure on his advertisers to dump his show. (snip) At least five companies said over the weekend that they will no longer advertise their products during Fox News’ “Hannity” television show. . . Keurig, Realtor.com, 23 and Me, Eloquii and Nature´s Bounty all pulled their ads from the television show, in response to Fox host Sean Hannity’s coverage of the sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Hannity, never one to support boycotts, has not specifically called for
The UCLA basketball players arrested for allegedly shoplifting a pair of sunglasses in a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, China have been left behind to face the tender mercies of Chinese justice. (snip) What Chinese justice deserves, and should demand in return for letting off the students with a warning, is a public formal apology from the head of the University of California for failing to prepare the students for their responsibility as representatives of a world-famous university. That would be Janet Napolitano. In the old days before the Chinese Revolution, such an apology would involve the penitent individual kneeling on
I am cheered by a story from Friday that seems to have received little notice. (snip) The allegation that Oberlin officials knew or should have known that racism was not a factor in the arrests, and yet allowed and facilitated students in deliberately damaging the business future of the bakery, should open the door to punitive damages. The purpose of punitive damages is deter future misbehavior. Therefore, the sum awarded as punitive damages needs to be big enough to matter to the defendant. Oberlin College enjoys an endowment of over $800 million, or almost $300,000 per student, which will sound mighty
So far, there has not been much holding of Bill Clinton to account by progressives, despite the change in zeitgeist for sexual predation by the powerful. Even though it’s very fashionable on the left today to hold the founders of our country to present day standards. But the inevitable is happening. At first a few progressives start mentally applying the post-Weinstein ethic to Bill Clinton. In the process, they eventually have to reflect on their own past and regret their support for him throughout Kenneth Starr’s revelations, impeachment, and beyond. But that will take a long time. But if they don’t publicly
The Washington Post promised us that fake hate crimes are “rare.” The news hounds of D.C. know that because the Southern Poverty Law Center, America’s greatest purveyors of fake hate crimes, told them so. That is the biggest hoax of all. The occasion for their latest prevarication was this week when even the Post had to admit that three recent nationally publicized stories of white on black hate crimes were fake as a nine-bob note. At the Air Force Academy Prep school, a black student admitted he was responsible for the racist graffiti that drew so much virtue display from so many
In an article that rises to the level of self-parody, a Washington Post journalist with the Dickensian name Simon Denyer turns a touching moment of triumph into a bit of an ordeal. As most readers know, President Trump’s granddaughter Arabella Kushner wowed an audience and the Chinese internet, by singing three songs and reciting classical Chinese poetry. Although shot with low production values (a home video, see?), the performance was expertly scripted to pull Chinese heartstrings, addressing the Chinese leader and his wife as “Uncle” and “Auntie,” as is often done in Chinese culture, when families are close. (snip) How
Former model Leann Tweeden accused Minnesota Sen. Al Franken Thursday of harassing her multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006. Tweeden alleges that Franken, a writer for Saturday Night Live before he became a Senator, wrote a script that featured him kissing her, and harassed her during rehearsals, Tweeden writes for KABC. When Tweeden returned from the tour, she noticed a photo from the tour where Franken has his hands on her breasts and is smiling into the camera. “You knew exactly what you were doing. You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my
Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual
Papa John´s apologized Tuesday night for comments made by CEO John Schnatter blaming sluggish pizza sales on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. The company is a major NFL sponsor and advertiser, and Schnatter said on an earnings call Nov. 1 that "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John´s shareholders" and that the protests "should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago."(Snip) "The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive," it said. "That definitely was not our
The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special
It was a rather cagey move via Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The longtime anti-Trumper was barely able to conceal his smirk as he informed the media that should Roy Moore win next month’s Alabama special election to fill the vacant Senate seat created when Jeff Sessions became the U.S. Attorney General, it would be up to President Trump to make the final decision regarding whether or not Moore would be allowed to actually serve in the Senate. (Snip) Democrats in Congress are said to already be preparing a full-on “If Roy Moore isn’t fit to be a senator then Donald
Lil Peep, a fast-rising rapper whose emotional tracks charted depression and drug use, has died aged 21. His UK representative confirmed the news to the Guardian.

President Barack Obama mingled with Democratic leadership and high-powered donors at a New York City mansion on Tuesday, while raising money for the cash-strapped political party. Democrats are entering the 2018 election cycle amid financial struggles, with many donors declining to give after the party´s devastating loss to Donald Trump in 2016. Even the fundraising event on Tuesday night, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Senate Victory Fund, drew few attendees, according to photos captured exclusively by DailyMail.com. The fundraiser was held at the palatial Upper East Side duplex owned by Dennis Mehiel, a former candidate
Multiple NFL owners have engaged in discussions about removing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from the league. (Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in its Nov. 15 letter to Jones’s attorney, David Boies. That letter was shared with all of the league’s 32 owners. It was
Following The Gateway Pundit’s viral story on Judge Roy Moore’s alleged signature inside accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook, more evidence suggests it may be a forgery.On Monday, CNN published photos of the signature showing two different inks. The signature says “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.” Strangely, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy,” is written in black ink, while “Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House,” is in blue ink.

LOS ANGELES- Three UCLA basketball players detained for shoplifting at three high-end stores in China publicly apologized Wednesday before coach Steve Alford announced they were being suspended indefinitely. Freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley won’t be allowed to suit up, practice or travel with the team while the university continues to sort out the circumstances of last week’s incident in Hangzhou, China, Alford said during a news conference at Pauley Pavilion. ”These are good young men who have exercised an inexcusable lapse of judgment and now they have to live with that,” Alford said. ”They let a lot
A Texas sheriff reportedly threatened to bring disorderly conduct charges against a truck driver for displaying a profane anti-Trump sticker on the rear window of the vehicle. Sheriff Troy Nehls in Ford Bend County told the Houston Chronicle that he had received many complaints about the sticker, which read: “F--- TRUMP AND F--- YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.” Nehls posted a photo of the truck and the offending sticker on his Facebook page with the following message: “I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359.
