DNC Hack: Ignore the diversions – the content is what counts

by Kit

The hacked and leaked e-mails of the Democratic National Committee prove what many people already knew – the primaries were unfair. This is not a surprise, anybody paying attention to the race for the past months has witness massive “voting irregularities”, then there’s the totally undemocratic system of “super delegates”, and the ridiculously unfair provisional ballots.

The DNC e-mails, where party officials discuss ways to discredit and sabotage Sanders’ campaign, merely serve to turn a glut of evidence into an all-out orgy.

That the chairwoman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, should be forced to resign in disgrace…only to be immediately hired by Clinton’s campaign, is just the icing on the cake.

The elections were rigged. Sanders never had a chance. That is clearer now than it has ever been.

You would think that evidence of massive corruption at the heart of the American political establishment would be newsworthy, but you would be wrong. Hillary, in this case as in many others, seems to be above criticism. Unfortunately for the establishment, simply ignoring it wasn’t really an option, because nowadays people have twitter and facebook. This was happening here and now…it’s not just some Yemeni wedding party that you blow up and pretend never existed.

No, what they really needed was a distraction, and Conway Twitty is dead.

Blaming Russia is the new black, in this regard. It was all the Kremlin! The Kremlin leaked these e-mails…it doesn’t matter what they said, in fact don’t even read them…RUSSIA! PUTIN! KREMLIN!

It’s important to point out at this point, that there is literally no evidence Russia leaked these e-mails. None. Zero. Zilch. Zip. Nada.

Sure, they MAY HAVE. But loads of people may have. The Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians. Trump or Sanders campaigns. Germany, France, Britain. A Clinton or DNC whistleblower. An aggrieved ex-employee. Wikileaks. Or just some guy with a shitload of proxies and spare time.

If I had to make a guess, I would say the hack probably came from an anti-neocon faction inside the American intelligence services, someone who can foresee what the Clinton/Nuland foreign policy would mean for the rest of the world, and doesn’t especially want to be turned into a small pile of glowing dust.

The list of possible suspects is endless, and who knows what games are played behind the scenes in the corridors of power? It doesn’t matter. Speculating on motives and guilt is pointless, and to engage in it, even to refute obviously spurious claims, is allow the narrative to be controlled.

It doesn’t matter who hacked what, or why. It doesn’t matter whether or not Trump knew, or Putin knew, or Assange knew. It doesn’t matter where it comes from.

What matters is the e-mails show a reporter for the New York Times editing an article he wrote about Bernie Sanders at the direct request of Clinton’s campaign.

What matters is the DNC staff using terms like “tacobowl” to refer to the Hispanic voter base, and planning to to attack Sanders religion (or lack thereof).

What matters is the sort of person we have running for the most powerful position in the world, the sort of people they employ, the sort of underhanded tactics they use, and their casual attitude towards the corruption of the democratic system.

We should be talking about the cold hard facts of an increasingly scary world, not whether or not Donald Trump is a Russian spy.

Clinton has been cheating the system since the beginning, and we can’t let ourselves get distracted from that.

    Unlikely to be Sanders, Senator Sheepdog. A pathetic specimen, he has covered for all of Hellary’s cheating, lying and law-breaking so far. He is just a DNC tool to incite the youngsters against Trump, so that they don’t bolt and vote Green. That’s all he ever was.

    She cheated the process plain and simple, and the emails expose proof. The DNC colluded with the media, and against her opponent to ensure her victory – and still she had a tough contest. In any other universe someone who cheats to win a contest is instantly DISQUALIFIED and usually expelled from the institution. Academic exams, olympic athletes, etc. But I guess the DNC has no such rule – and instead rewards cheaters with nominations to represent what they stand for, while the cheaters reward their co-conspirators with beneficial positions in the result. (DWS) and promise to secure their systems better so that their wrongdoing won’t be exposed next time.

    The progressives are in self-denial over the blatant corruption that carries their new role-model forward – out of sheer panicked horror over the possibility of Trump’s victory, while if the process was conducted fairly would in-fact have been an unlikely possibility. Hence they are comforted by blaming “the Russians”.

    Voting out of Trump-panic for Hillary is a mistake, because now both the right and left have splits and divisions to contend with. There has never been a better time to escape the two-party trap that is American federal politics.

    The DNC is packaged entertainment dressed up for mass consumption. Honesty, integrity, profundity have no place, wining is all that matters. Political conventions like reality shows or fast food commercials illustrate all that is deeply wrong in our society. All that feed from such carnivals shame us, for we are no better. We see what is wrong yet continue to support it by providing attention. There are alternatives and not those proscribed by the carnival masters.

    When I was young, I learned at school that when you knowingly did something wrong, and when confronted with this, that the answer that somebody else did it would only make things worse for you.

    Which raises the question where DNC party officials had their education, and why this ‘putting the blame on Putin’ is brought to us by journalists as if this type of behavior is just okay?

    Americans are like little babies.

    They cheer their filthy Clinton scum on, when bombing civilian targets in Serbia in a faked-up war that Slick WIlly concocted along with that criminal sow Mad Alldumb.

    Then they act all surprised that the same filthy shit have rigged their own party’s election system? And they try to blame…. Vladimir Putin???

    The right place for the Clintons is not on an election platform. The right place for the Clintons is dangling from a noose until their feet stop jiggling. But leave them hanging their to rot. You can’t trust an American – even when they’ve been hung.

    And if this filthy pair of <b<Clinton SCUM show their faces here in Europe, they’ll be going back home in coffins.

      You’re making big generalizations about Americans. Not everybody in the country agrees with or supports Hellary. In fact, she’s so unpopular that some polls even have her slipping behind Trump!

  6. There is nothing flawed about the system. People might want to revise it, update it, but it is not as if it is not a thought out negotiated issue. He lost. Not because of the DNC staffers were forwarding articles to one another reporting on the political news of the day. Of course they thought Hillary was a given. She was until Bernie came up from the outside. They let him run even though he wasn’t even a democrat. And he did very well. Nobody changed any rules mid-race that cost him votes. Get with it people, you’re gonna love Hillary if you give her a chance.

      What planet have you been living on? Killary is corrupt, owned by corporates and the most dangerous person on the planet. With the upheaval around the globe today, most of it deliberately caused by the US and some of it the responsibility of Killary, she is the last person I want to see with nuclear codes. Insane.

    The answer to all this electoral madness is simple; stop ‘voting.’

    Don’t give anyone a so called ‘platform.’

    With no mandate, nobody can honestly claim to ‘Represent the Nation.’

    This is beyond ridiculous; it has become utter idiocy to even believe in ‘democratic’ principles.

    Here one can see the true nature and role of liberal newspapers like the Guardian. To concentrate on the ‘crime’ of hacking the e-mails, whilst diverting attention away from the ‘crimes’ revealed… in the e-mails themselves. That wild allegations about Russians attempting to meddle and undermine the Democratic Party, is more important than the Democratic Party rigging their election in favour of Clinton and thereby turning the democratic process into a grostesque farce. Does anyone see a pattern here?

      It’s just the same pattern as 21st century Gladio operations being spun as ‘Islamic Terror’……..NATO’s relentless march Eastwards being spun as ‘a dangerous Vladimir Putin’….

      I would say we should go with the Russia was it allegations and demand a thorough investigation of the DNC Apparatus, somewhere, somewhere there are to be moles, and as often times the fish stinks from the Head – start right there then work down, wouldn’t THAT be great ? Of course one then has to go back – far back – to Arkansas times where drugmoney catapulted the ugly pair to the top….
