Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Sorry Not Sorry

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, democrat, democratic party, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders

Today, the Democratic National Convention begins in Philadelphia.

Yesterday, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, announced her resignation amidst a growing controversy over the DNC’s favoritism toward Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during this year’s presidential contest.

Months ago, Sen. Sanders called for Wasserman Schultz to step down, noting her closeness to the Clinton campaign and angered by what his campaign perceived as unfair treatment. To which, Wasserman Schultz had smugly responded, “Spoken like someone who has never been a member of the Democratic Party and has no understanding of what we do.”

It seems Sanders had a lot better understanding of what the DNC does than she thought.

Thanks to WikiLeaks, the American people have also gotten in the know. Last Friday, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from top DNC officials, reportedly snatched by Russian hackers. In the emails, one can read the DNC’s top financial officer suggesting a smear against Sanders over his religion. “AMEN,” responded the DNC’s CEO.

Yes, indeed, the Democratic Party establishment was rigging the process. “The release provides further evidence,” Michael Sainato wrote in The Observer, that “the DNC broke its own charter . . . by favoring Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee, long before any votes were cast.”

Caught breaking the rules, Wasserman Schultz is out!

Sorta. She’s out after the convention, not before.

Furthermore, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is still “in.” Mrs. Clinton just offered her a position on the campaign, and said she was “grateful to Debbie for getting the Democratic Party to this year’s historic convention in Philadelphia.”

By hook and by crook.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    I heard this morning that she was blaming underlings. A far cry from ‘the buck stops here’. Government leaders have to get out of the habit of using e-mail. Hillary took a step by setting up her own server. In the future, maybe people who want their activities to remain undisclosed should go back to using the telephone or meeting for lunch and having a quiet discussion about what they want to do. Social media will be their downfall.

    More fodder for my slowly dawning feeling that Johnson may be exactly at the right juncture of history to win:

  4. There is no end to the corruption in our political world. Still, it’s the voter’s fault. They keep electing these criminals.

  5. Paul Spencer says:

    How much more stupidity has to smack the voters in the face before they / we/ me take control of our own political destiny. Hurrah for direct democracy! Regardless of our personal views, all must work together to establish a more powerful electorate to reign in the cancer of corruption.

  6. Lynn Atherton Bloxham says:

    Please do not delude yourself that Trump

    would not have done the same thing. Hopefully Johnson will remember that the LP earned the title “Party of Principle” and we have survived because of it. Power though is a strong inducement to excuse dishonesty by being pragmatic (Pragmatism first definition is philosophical and is defined that the end justifies the means. )

  7. Karen H says:

    Not that I agreed with his politics, but it seems that Bernie Sanders was the only honest guy in the race.

    Yes, it’s Clinton coronation week. & as you pointed out “by hook and by crook,” Mrs.Clinton will do,say, hire, cheat,steal, lie, fawn & even involve Mr. Sanders to get elected to the highest office.

    So sick to my stomach that we have come to this as a nation; Hillary & the Donald. Corruption abounds… vote them all out!

  8. Paul Jacob says:

    Brian — Johnson possibilities are not probabilities, but they are actual possibilities. Wow.
