For almost two years, ever since Hillary Clinton lost to the 2016 presidential election, the DNC and their media enablers have been screaming at the top of their lungs about Russian meddling and how Trump only won because he received Putin’s help. Their pious talk about putting country first and being a graceful loser had a half-life that expired on November 9th, 2016. Remember when Obama admonished Trump to stop whining and told him to accept the will of the people, that counsel was about as sincere as Barack’s promise to close Guantanamo and his pledge to deliver an affordable care act.
Not only did they refuse to admit they lost to America’s first infantile president, Democrats actually mounted a Red Scare campaign that McCarthy would have been blushed over in a rank attempt to shift blame and distract from the issue. But in their assertion of election tampering, they unwittingly exposed their own complicity. As much as they blame Russia for helping Donald Trump and delivering him to the White House, the reality is that it was Clinton’s campaign who elevated Trump by meddling in the Republican nomination process.
At the outset of the primary season, Hillary’s team decided to pump up the Trump campaign in order to kneecap Republican candidates they feared would get in the way of their assured victory path. According to a report by Politico, the Clinton campaign drew up a meticulous plan to raise Trump’s profile by initiating a Pied Piper strategy that would marginalize candidates they saw as more credible threats:
“Clinton’s team drew up a plan to pump Trump up. Shortly after her kickoff, top aides organized a strategy call, whose agenda included a memo to the Democratic National Committee: “This memo is intended to outline the strategy and goals a potential Hillary Clinton presidential campaign would have regarding the 2016 Republican presidential field,” it read. “The variety of candidates is a positive here, and many of the lesser known can serve as a cudgel to move the more established candidates further to the right. In this scenario, we don’t want to marginalize the more extreme candidates, but make them more ‘Pied Piper’ candidates who actually represent the mainstream of the Republican Party,” read the memo.
The same campaign that interfered in the Republican primaries and the same DNC that rigged their own contest now have the temerity to lecture the world about respecting democracy and playing fair. There is nothing democratic about the Democrat party, just this morning, after DNC members voted to stop taking donations from fossil fuel companies a few days ago, Tom Perez and company reversed the ban in order to keep raking in money from oil companies and earth fracking corporations. The Democrat party platform is basically: we are not Trump and anyone who doesn't support us is a Russian bot while hoping that their base is struck yet again by collective attention deficit disorder. #DemHacks Click To Tweet
Even though Democrats and their shills in mainstream media are continually spewing propaganda noting that the rise of Trump is due to Russian intervention, the truth is Trump is a byproduct of their failed leadership. Putting aside Hillary and the DNC’s tampering in the Republican primaries, the Donald would not be rankling our nerves with his bombastic tweets and his megalomaniac screeds if Obama and the Democrats did not spend eight years nourishing corporations by sacrificing Americans at the altar of Wall Street. At each turn since 2008, they chose to enrich the 1% by transferring wealth from the many into the bank accounts of the gentry.
As I noted in a previous article, it’s always easier to lash out and blame others than it is to accept responsibility and fix what is broken within. Democrats are a party beyond repair, just like their Republican counterparts, they are a cabal built on the foundation of corruption and graft. Sadly, Democrat loyalists have brought into the lies and DNC talking points without considering the source. They blame Russia, racism and come up with a thousand excuses as to why John McCain in pantsuits, aka Hillary Clinton, lost to Donald Trump. But by their own admittance, the biggest hackers of our democracy were the hacks who gave us Hillary and delivered America into the petulant hands of Donald Trump. #DemHacks
