So now it turns out that Hillary Clinton has been using the DNC as a cut-out in a massive dirty-tricks campaign against Sen. Bernie Sanders.
A cut-out, for those who don’t read espionage novels, is “a mutually trusted intermediary facilitating the exchange of information between parties.”
The parties in this case being the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton Crime Family, working in tandem to destroy Sanders and his free-stuff crusade.
I know what you’re thinking: the primary campaign is over, so what difference, at this point, does it make?
But on the eve of the Democratic convention, this leak of 20,000 emails among the DNC hacks has enraged the Bernie bros. It confirms that the DNC and the Hillary campaign have always been one and the same — and that the entire primary process was “rigged,” as Donald Trump keeps putting it in his tweets.
(I am pleased to report that my name appears in these WikiLeaks. Not as one of the in-the-satchel reporters, but in a forwarded newspaper story about an interview I did with Maine Gov. Paul LePage in April.)
Hillary’s jackbooted thugs at the DNC even went after Bernie’s religion, or lack thereof.
This came from the DNC’s chief financial officer two months ago. It’s best read aloud in a German accent: “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.”
Not quite certain how to interpret that, but no reading is very flattering, especially if, like Hillary, you’re trying to promote a diversity-celebrating persona.
In the state-run media yesterday you had a better chance of finding out the Munich shooter’s real first name than you did of coming across a comprehensive story about the collusion of the Democrats and their lickspittles in the mainstream media.
What makes this even more ironic is the way Clinton’s media sycophants tore Donald Trump apart for days over his retweeting of a badge in the form of a six-pointed Star of David. Not to mention the alleged Nazi salute by Laura Ingraham at the GOP convention last week.
In both cases there was no “there” there, but Hillary’s bumkissers and lapdogs went nuts anyway. Now, though, they’re giving this smoking-gun email a good leaving-alone.
Among other things, we now know that when CBS News prepares a story on a poll, they run the first draft by the DNC (also known as Hillary) to make sure they’re spinning the data to her benefit.
We also learn that Politico reporters show first drafts of their stories to the DNC. We have always known that Chuck Todd is a useful idiot for his Democrat masters, but it’s even worse than that. There’s now a leaked email detailing how Todd conspired to “discredit” MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski when she went off the reservation on the subject of DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Blabbermouth.
I’m sure he’ll address his ethical lapse at the top of “Meet the Press” this morning. Right, right?
And of course the DNC also went after Donald Trump. They planted fake help-wanted internet ads to make him look like a sexist and a misogynist — in other words, like Bill Clinton.
Again, have you read a word about any of this anywhere except on conservative websites?
Compare the media blackout on these “dirty tricks” to the endless stories two months ago about how Trump acted as his own PR man in conversations with a magazine reporter in 1990.
It was the lead story on the “NBC Nightly News,” four minutes believe it or not, reported by an “investigative” reporter. But now … nothing to see here folks, move along.
