Dems Convention Off to Rocky Start

Dems Convention Off to Rocky Start

by Stephen Lendman

Democrats mock the term’s meaning. Exposed electoral rigging anointed Clinton party standard bearer honors - an unindicted war criminal/racketeer belonging in prison, not high office.

DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned on the convention’s eve - guilty of racketeering for stealing primary and caucuses to assure Clinton’s nomination - yet remaining unaccountable, staying on through the November elections as honorary chairwoman.

Had things been open, free and fair, Sanders would likely be Dem nominee, not Clinton. Despite flagrant fraud depriving him of the chance to face Trump in November, he shockingly continues supporting Clinton - responsible for back-stabbing him.

Asked if Sunday revelations changed his position, he replied “(n)o, no, no. We are going to do everything we can to protect working families in this country.” 

“What a campaign is about is not about Hillary Clinton. It’s not about Donald Trump. It's about the people of this country.” What rubbish from an exposed Judas - supporting what he campaigned against!

He called the most recklessly dangerous presidential candidate in US history a “far, far superior” one to Trump. “We're going to focus on defeating the worst Republican candidate I've seen in a lifetime. We've got to elect Secretary Clinton.”

Conveniently he forgot the horrors of the Bush/Cheney co-presidency, their war on humanity after the 9/11 mother of all false flags, continuing throughout Obama’s tenure, virtually certain to escalate if Clinton succeeds him.

Trump justifiably blasted Sanders, calling him “weak…pathetic…Sorry folks, but Bernie Sanders is exhausted, just can’t go on anymore. He is trying to dismiss the new e-mails and DNC disrespect. SAD!”

His political revolution was phony all along - in name only, not real. New York Times Clinton cheerleading throughout the campaign tried downplaying flagrant DNC criminal fraud, saying:

It “threaten(s) to undermine the delicate healing process that followed the contentious fight between” Sanders and Clinton - more a tempest in a teapot as things turned out.

The Times disgracefully suggested “Russia (perhaps) had a hand in the leaks that helped bring down the head of an American political party” - despite clear evidence showing otherwise.

It quickly changed the subject to quoting officials expressing support for a legally challenged woman unfit for any public office, unaccountable despite her high crimes too serious to ignore.

Circus theatrics without substance will unfold over the next four days, the usual array of speakers pontificating plenty, saying nothing, Dems hoping to make voters forget about electoral rigging giving Clinton the nomination she didn’t earn.

Hail to the thief if more of the same hands her the nation’s highest office in November. America’s deplorable state continues reaching for new lows.
