How Clinton Lost the Nomination

by Charlie Musgrove | 7/28/2016

Yes, as we are all too aware, Hillary Clinton was officially anointed this week as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee for the upcoming election. She was chosen by the party to be its nominee long before the race ever began, and it used every means at its disposal, both in plain sight and behind closed doors, to ensure that nothing – least of all the will of the people – would prevent that from happening.
Yet even though she may have won the title, she lost any moral legitimacy to the position that the title represents.
It is a shameful, hollow victory; one that has stained the democratic process in its callous and brazen willingness to subvert that very process by whatever means necessary in order to triumph.
Her campaign’s collusion with the DNC (not to mention her corporate media allies, lobbyists and tech industry cohorts) to undermine Senator Sanders’ bid for the nomination – to any rational, thinking person who’d paid even the slightest bit of attention to the unfolding race – was as obvious as it was incensing. The party’s hierarchy, working with their establishment counterparts at state and local levels, did everything they could to sabotage and stifle the Vermont Senator’s burgeoning campaign.
This subterfuge became glaringly apparent through a whole host of underhanded practices. From planning debate schedules to ensure the lowest possible viewing audience; widespread voter suppression through registrations being dropped, party registration being changed, or receiving incorrect ballots; manipulating voter registration rules; forged signatures on voter registration sheets; scandalously high discrepancies in many states between exit poll results and actual voting tallies (disparities that were not evident in either the Republican primary or the 2008 Democratic primary); officials conspiring to paint Sanders as an atheist, as revealed in the recent WikiLeaks email dump; and the list goes on…
Perhaps the saddest aspect of all of this is that so many of those previously disenfranchised, disaffected and otherwise alienated or jaded by the political process saw in Senator Sanders’ campaign a light in the political darkness. They saw a man of principle, someone who had spent a lifetime remaining true to his beliefs and his word, and someone who wanted to rid the system of its corporate, insider crony-ism and make the country and more fair and just one. And now those same people who fought alongside Sanders are confronted with the cruel reality that those corporate, insider cronies came out on top…once again.
However, as dispiriting as that reality may be, it could have been worse. Had the Democratic primary been fought fairly, on a level playing field, with no establishment deck-stacking involved and Clinton had still clawed her way to the nomination, there would be very little solace to be had in the notion that voters simply liked her and her politics better. As bitter a pill to swallow as the actual outcome is, at least one can take some comfort in the knowledge that she didn’t win on merit, she won through fraud and deceit.
If, as many like to say, politics is a sport, then Hillary Clinton is the political equivalent of a state-sponsored, doped-up Russian athlete. [sic]*

The upshot:

Hillary Clinton didn’t win the Democratic Party nomination – she simply won the game of trickery, collusion and fraudulence that modern politics in this country has devolved into. And while Sanders’ bid to clean house ultimately failed, it opened the eyes of many millions of voters to show just how corrupted that system has become.
Right now many of those voters are crestfallen and many more are just plain angry. But there are many fights that lay ahead, and when they come, those same voters will be going into battle with their eyes wide open.

The RNC tried to pull off the same thing, but it didn’t fly.

Why does everyone seem so surprised to find that Hillary is a cheating criminal liar? She’s been cheating and lying since the Nixon investigation! And she’s been committing crimes, openly, since Whitewater! She and Bill just KEEP skating and folks act just as surprised by the NEXT crime or scandal.
This IS the Clinton Cartel. This IS how they operate. This IS how they’ve always operated.

Why does everybody seem so surprised to find Hillary is a cheating criminal liar? The answer to that question is that they’ve been brainwashed by the Zionist-controlled media for so long. Her pathological lying began when she was a 27-year-old lawyer working for a Congressional Committee investigating Watergate. She was eventually fired from that job, for lying and other unethical behavior.
Unfortunately, she hasn’t changed one bit; but, instead, grown much worse.

Yes all very sadly true, however Sanders’ supporters still have a play to make, That is to support Jill stein. and assure that Clinton and the insiders lose the election.
The Democrat party is no longer based on Democracy ,it must be torn asunder and built back up or discarded completely.

Weak, placebo waste of energy.

“…one that has stained the democratic process…”
The premise of the article appears correct however I have difficulty with the context. What Democratic process is being referred to apart from the private organisation called the DEMOCRATIC national convention? If Democratic means Democracy then I fail to see how that is applicable to a regime that installs leaders, especially where those leaders usually come from the same extended families.

You’re too delicate to put it this way, so I will:
If she can’t respect democracy in Democratic Primaries, she shouldn’t be allowed on the ballot paper for the Presidency.
Are there any ways in the US legal system for her to be disbarred from participating in November due to having organised voting fraud in the primaries?
I would look at that right now.
Nothing better than not having a Presidential race because the candidate was disqualified due to cheating, is there?!
