To the Democratic National Committee elites, keeping average Americans away from their convention is a good idea, while protecting the southern border from intruding terrorists, rapists and murderers is a bad one.
The DNC has erected a four-mile fence around its convention site at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. (Isn’t it ironic they’re doing so much to protect a site named after a bank?)
“Hey Reince,” she trolled, “I’m in Cleveland if you need another chair to help keep your convention in order.”
Wasserman Schultz’s attempted zinger came just three days before Wikileaks engaged in a collective pulling down of the pants of several DNC staffers, Wasserman Schultz and Clinton’s campaign by releasing some 20,000 emails.
The DNC chair appears to be losing her grip on party power after the massive leak. She reportedly has been stripped of her speaking spot, likely in a move to avoid embarrassing boos and cat calls from Sanders delegates.
UPDATE: Wasserman Schultz will resign as chairwoman of the DNC after the convention wraps up later this week.
The ugly side of the Democratic National Committee has been laid bare in the release of internal emails, and a series of them show staffers accusing a high-profile fundraiser of playing the “race card.”
“Level with me about Hala?” Hillary Clinton campaign staffer Lindsay Roitman wrote to DNC staffers Erik Stowe and Carla Frank on May 2, 2016.
“She’s trashing hillary, me, my team, our website…everything she doesn’t like. and she’s mean to my people!! what should i do?”
Roitman was referring to Hala Hijazi, a San Francisco-based fundraiser for Hillary Clinton and other top Democrats.
“Welcome to our nightmare,” Stowe wrote in response. “I would just ignore her as much as possible and tell your team to do the same if she is being toxic.
“Has she used the race card yet?”
“she escalates to dennis all the time,” Roitman wrote in return. “and yes, we’ve seen that card. this week it’s ‘people hate working with all of you b/c you are so inflexible’ (re: she wants whatever she wants without raising)…i mean if that’s the worst thing she can say…fine.”
When Mike Brzezinski called on Debbie Wasserman Schultz to resign as chair of the DNC, she asked Chuck Todd to intervene laying bare the cabal between the media and the Democratic Party.
On May 18, the “Morning Joe” co-host denounced the party’s treatment of Hillary Clinton rival Bernie Sanders.
“This has been very poorly handled from the start,” Brzezinski said, according to Mediaite. “It has been unfair and they haven’t taken him seriously, and it starts quite frankly with the person we just heard speaking. It just does. You know that.”
“If the party I was a member of treated me like this, rigged the debate process, I’d say go straight to hell, I’m running as an independent,” Joe Scarborough added.
There’s more evidence that the Democratic National Committee rigged the election against Bernie Sanders and in favor of Hillary Clinton.
WikiLeaks posted an email from Mark Paustenbach, the Democratic Party’s national press secretary & deputy communications director, to other staffers discussing how they could create an anti-Sanders narrative the described his campaign in disarray.
In Wichita, Kansas, a recent Black Lives Matter protest turned into a free community cookout after Police Chief Gordon Ramsey extended an invitation to local leaders to discuss racial issues over good food on a nice Sunday afternoon.
Social media posts by the Wichita Police Department about the event went viral, and the community held a productive discussion about the racial tensions gripping the country, with both sides gaining insight on the issue from the other, the Associated Press reports.
The successful cookout prompted officials with the Oakland, California police department to attempt to set up a similar community event, and they quickly learned that Oakland is a long way away from Kansas.
At an organized Black Lives Matter protest at the Oakland Police Officers Association office Wednesday, when “peaceful activists” chained themselves to the door for a 12-hour occupation, self-described “black liberal farmer” Karissa Lewis told Fox 2 what the local Black Lives Matter chapter thinks about the Oakland Police Department’s offer for a community barbeque.
Details are still coming in about an apparent terrorist attack in Munich, Germany, but that didn’t stop President Obama from using the opportunity to crack a joke about his eldest daughter leaving home and making the incident about himself.
While Obama was addressing reporters at the White House, he said, “I was a little bit delayed. As some of you know there were shooting in Germany.
“We don’t yet know exactly what’s happening there but obviously our hearts go out to those who may have been injured. It’s still an active situation and Germany’s one of our closest allies, so we are gonna pledge all the support that they may need in dealing with these circumstances,” Obama said.
“It’s a good reminder of something that I’ve said over the last couple of weeks, which is our way of life, our freedoms, our ability to go about our business everyday, raising our kids and seeing them grow up, graduate from high school,” Obama said as a smile began to grow on his face during a seemingly somber moment, “now about to leave their dad. I’m sorry, I’m getting a little too personal.
“Getting a little too personal there,” he said while smirking.
A San Antonio woman who works for the Texas Department of Public Safety was sentenced this week to 35 months in federal prison for issuing driver’s licenses to about 150 illegal immigrants.
Linda Ann Perez, 47, sold the licenses to illegal immigrants for between $1,000 and $2,000 each while working as a clerk at a state office on South Gen. McMullen Drive in San Antonio, a scam that netted an estimated $215,000, according to court documents cited by the San Antonio Express-News.
Department of Public Safety officials realized something funny was going on last spring and alerted Homeland Security Investigations and Texas Rangers.
