DNC Chair Cannot Explain Why Their Nominating Process Is Not Rigged Against Sanders

The more we learn about how the Dems run their show, the more absurd it becomes. Super Delegates. So forget how the sucker voters vote, the party chiefs vote counts more than individual votes. It makes third world elections appear more honest. I don’t think this is how our founders planned our elections to be held.

CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz over the “rigged” process in New Hampshire that left Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton with the same number of delegates despite Sanders’ 22 point shellacking of Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton lost to Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire by 22 percentage points, the biggest victory in a contested Democratic Primary there since John F. Kennedy,” Tapper explained. “But it looks as though Clinton and Sanders are leaving the Granite State with the same number of delegates in their pockets because Clinton has the support of New Hampshire’s Superdelegates, these party insiders.”

Tapper said, “I’m not sure that, that answer would satisfy an anxious young voter.”

Soros supported Christie is no more after Kamikaze attack on Rubio

It was a puzzle at the last debate why Christie chose to decimate Rubio. After all, Trump was leading the pack. But then again, just who is/was Christie? What did he hope to accomplish? Was this the plan? Christie had been leaving little doubt all week that Rubio was going to be in his crosshairs come the debate.  So what is going to be the payback for him and who orchestrated it? So let take a look back and think about just who is the real Chris Christie from some of my earlier posts.

Chris Christie raking in the money from Dems – add George Soros to the list June 4, 2013 — bunkerville.

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows.

The checks are flying into the Republican governor’s war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley.

Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University, said much of Christie’s Democratic support stems from a recent fundraiser in California with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Palatucci (Christie’s campaign manager) declined to discuss the campaign’s fundraising strategy, but said Christie has done plenty to earn the backing of Democrats.

The Star-Ledger review found:

•â€…Five executives at Soros Fund Management have chipped in a combined $19,000 to the governor’s re-election campaign, state records show. The donor roll includes Soros’ protégé and chief investment officer, Scott Bessent, who tends to fund liberal Democrats, and Sender Cohen, a partner at the hedge fund who more often favors Republicans.

•John Doerr, a top Democratic fundraiser and venture capitalist in California, sent Christie the maximum $3,800 donation for the Republican primary this year. So did his wife. Federal records show the couple has given more than $1.2 million to national Democrats since 1997.

•Tim Mullen, a Chicago investor who gave more than $100,000 to Emanuel’s campaign for mayor in 2011 and bundled from $200,000 to $500,000 for Obama in 2008, has also sent Christie a maximum donation, as has his wife Alice. Mullen was already a Christie donor in 2009, state records show.

Governor Christie’s Relationship with Radical Islam 

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s nomination of Sohail Mohammed to be a state judge shows the governor’s tin ear for radical Islam. Not only did he appoint a longtime mouthpiece for radical Islamists to be a judge, but Christie has also turned a blind eye to the activities of one of Mohammed’s clients – radical imam Mohammed Qatanani, head of one of New Jersey’s largest mosques.

Qatanani has a history of Hamas support and was related by marriage to a leading Hamas operative in the West Bank. This fall, Qatanani will return to a New Jersey immigration court, where the Department of Homeland Security is fighting to have him deported. In his initial application for a green card filed in 1999, government lawyers say Qatanani failed to disclose a conviction in an Israeli military court for being a Hamas member and providing support to the terrorist group.

Oddly, Christie – a Republican who was then the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey – sided with Qatanani against DHS, allowing a top lieutenant, Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles McKenna, to testify as a character witness at Qatanani’s first immigration trial, and publicly embracing the imam at a Ramadan breakfast at his mosque. Christie later appointed McKenna as New Jersey’s head of homeland security..

As general counsel to the American Muslim Union (AMU), Mohammed often represented clients subject to government allegations concerning terrorists. The AMU often is highly critical of U.S. counter-terrorism efforts.

One online newsletter even included a claim that a “Zionist commando orchestrated the 9/11 terrorist attacks” and shows support for a “Rabbi” from the extremist Jewish organization Neturei Karta, which denies the right of Israel to exist and supports its dismantling.

N.J. turns away non-union power crews – Christie cut his deal

How desperate is hurricane-ravaged New Jersey? Not desperate enough to suspend a union monopoly that keeps the state in the bottom ten states for economic competitiveness (and #48 for business friendliness). Relief crews from Alabama who were specifically called to New Jersey found themselves diverted to Long Island, NY after they arrived because they use non-union labor. New Jersey folks will just have to wait to get their power on.

WAFF-TV of Hunstville, AL reports:

Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can’t do any work there since they’re not union employees….

Understandably, Moore said they’re frustrated being told “thanks, but no thanks.”

Mitt Romney and Chris Christie on Climate Change

“First, a couple of preliminary things. In the past I’ve always said that climate change is real and it’s impacting our state. There’s undeniable data that CO2 levels and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere are increasing. This decade average temperatures have been rising, temperature changes are affecting weather patterns and our climate……

At about 5.15 minutes in, it gets rare with Chris. He intends to eliminate all coal plants, and create off shore wind. Green energy coming your way New Jersey! Enjoy the view. Full transcript over at the clip.

Kasich pleads for Democrat’s vote

Here is a hint for flipper (Kasich) as I call him, flapping his hands all around.You have to get through the GOP primaries. First. Before you can be the nominee. Second hint. Most primaries are not open. So keep appealing to the Democrats and your flippers will flip no more. Here we go:

Branding himself as a compromise candidate, Kasich said Sanders is too hot, and Clinton too cold – but the Ohio governor is just right.

“So, I’m still an undecided voter, but I’m choosing between you, Hillary, and Bernie Sanders,” the woman said in the C-SPAN 3 video posted to YouTube. “So my question is why should I vote for you in the Democratic primary?”

Kasich approached the woman in the audience to get “up close and personal” before going into his spiel.

Kasich reiterated that his only boss is his wife, then transitioned to explain that he’s a great compromise between Clinton and Sanders, likening himself to the perfect porridge.

“We got to get hope back in the country again, and Hillary is too brittle and Bernie is way out here on the extreme,” Kasich told the young woman. “I’m the right porridge. One of them is too hot, the other one’s too cold, but I got the right temperature.”

Canadian Libs to build seven refugee camps on military bases

This no doubt will give Obama some great ideas. Canada plans on kicking out the military personnel from Canadian bases and turn them into homes for so-called “refugees.” This is what a progressive government will give you. Here we go:

The Canadian military has been ordered by Justin Trudeau’s Liberals to draft plans to house more than 6,000 Muslim migrants on a long-term basis at military bases, according to documents obtained exclusively by The Rebel.

Included in the Department of National Defence budgets are hundreds of thousands of dollars set aside for “religious support,” including the purchase of Muslim Korans, prayer mats and foot-washing towels.

The plans also call for the construction of mosques or “worship centres,” using taxpayers dollars.

The planning documents, in English and French, were released in response to a Rebel “Access to Information” request about religious expenditures by the Department of National Defence.

But the detailed Quebec budget plans also shed light on the sheer scale of the Trudeau government’s plans to set up refugee camp-style accommodations on seven Canadian Forces Bases across Quebec and Ontario.

The budget for Quebec alone totals more than $46 million for the first six months.

For a typical migrant family, that’s a $200,000/year subsidy — not including medicare or welfare.

It’s shocking that Canadian Armed Forces personnel will be ordered to abandon the coalition battle against ISIS and return to Canada to become waiters, chauffeurs and social workers for Muslim migrants, and that Canadian Forces Bases will be turned into squalid refugee camps.

It’s a disgrace that Canadian military personnel have been sent eviction notices to make way for foreign migrants.

What Hillary Clinton told Wall Street behind closed doors

Bernie Sanders has found a sweet spot in the armament of Hillary Clinton. That being the obscene amounts of money she is receiving from those who want stuff in return. Oh yes, that is how it works, and Hillary cackling away that it is not so is simply false. Hillary will be dogged for a while about releasing the transcripts, so I have her video response which has changed from “I will look into it” to go to hell essentially. If she tells us she doesn’t have them, that will be a lie. So here we go:

Former secretary routinely demanded a stenographer at paid speeches

Contracts indicate Clinton owns transcripts, controls their release Read more here: McClatchy

But now back to the heart of the matter:

“Enough is enough. If you’ve got something to say, say it directly,” Clinton said the next day, effectively daring Sanders to accuse her of being bought and paid for. She also said she would “look into” releasing the transcripts of her paid speeches. But by Friday morning, her campaign seemed to indicate that full disclosure was not forthcoming. “I don’t think voters are interested in the transcripts,” Joel Benenson, Clinton’s pollster.

Well actually voters are interested, and fortunately, Politico has an account of one recent address which underscores Sanders’ concerns. “Clinton offered a message that the collected plutocrats found reassuring, declaring that the banker-bashing so popular within both political parties was unproductive and indeed foolish,” Politico writes. “[She struck] a soothing note on the global financial crisis, she told the audience, in effect: We all got into this mess together, and we’re all going to have to work together to get out of it.” Here’s more:

What the bankers heard her to say was just what they would hope for from a prospective presidential candidate: Beating up the finance industry isn’t going to improve the economy—it needs to stop. And indeed Goldman’s Tim O’Neill, who heads the bank’s asset management business, introduced Clinton by saying how courageous she was for speaking at the bank. (Brave, perhaps, but also well-compensated: Clinton’s minimum fee for paid remarks is $200,000).

Certainly, Clinton offered the money men—and, yes, they are mostly men—at Goldman’s HQ a bit of a morale boost. “It was like, ‘Here’s someone who doesn’t want to vilify us but wants to get business back in the game,’” said an attendee. “Like, maybe here’s someone who can lead us out of the wilderness.”

Right. Wall Street is looking at Washington “with complete revulsion.” Except when it comes to Clinton. Who offers “a way out of the wilderness.”

Needless to say, Politico’s account only serves to underscore the notion that a vote for Hillary is a vote for business as usual inside the Beltway. A ballot for America’s entrenched political aristocracy, and a sure fire ticket to more of the same.

Hillary Clinton’s Whitewater missing documents, testimony

Yesterday I posted Feds fight FOIA request for Hillary Clinton’s White Water draft indictments. Since this issue has arisen once again, I thought for a Saturday post a bit of a review would give us some fun. First, the amazing thing that amazingly Whitewater records suddenly appear after missing for months. What a surprise!. Then, a bit of parody with the second clip. I will list the pardons her hubby handed out as the door kicked their sorry asses as they collected anything that moved as they exited the White House door for the last time. Sit back, put up your feet, and enjoy.

HILLARY CLINTON APPEARS BEFORE GRAND JURY

Then a bit of humor :

Now the lucky ones who were convicted then pardoned by Bill Clinton.

Ultimately the Clintons were never charged, but 15 other persons were convicted of more than 40 crimes, including Bill Clinton’s successor as Governor, who was removed from office.[44]
