Dear Bernie Sanders Fans, Never Forget.
“I think many people have the mistaken impression that Congress regulates Wall Street. In truth that’s not the case. The real truth is that Wall Street regulates the Congress”
— Bernie Sanders
When Bernie Sander’s supporters staged a massive walkout in July of this year at the Democratic National Convention, there were chants “Show me what Democracy looks like! This is what Democracy looks like!” and “Walk Out!”. Over explicit bias by the DNC to prop up their favorite, Hillary Clinton.
No doubt, those that felt the Bern, felt the burn as well. Reports were flowing in that the mainstream media strongly favored HRC over Bernie Sanders despite the tremendous outpouring of support Bernie Sanders received from millions of supporters.
How could corporate media be so out of touch? Allow me an explanation:
Bernie Sanders’ strongest pillar of his candidacy was his position against Wall Street. After the ’08 recession, politicians lined up to point the finger at Wall Street as the main culprit(despite government over-regulation actually being the trigger). Even HRC was slamming Wall Street, quoted saying,
“So, you have to wonder, when does my hard work pay off? When does my family get ahead?”
But Bernie had the strongest sermons on Wall Street, the fiercest rebuke. He was the crusader against special interests and the hero of the 99%. So what happened? Special Interests.
Hillary Clinton, the nominee…
Emailgate and Wikileaks has revealed much about HRC and how she does business in politics. Including an email about how the DNC intentionally, from the start, determined to place Hillary on the ballot long before the primaries started.
As the New York Daily News reported, The Democratic Party nomination is largely controlled by,
“The desire of party bosses who don’t have to take into account the expressed desire of Democratic Voters.”
On August 22nd of this year, Michael Sainato of the Observer wrote:
“20,000 freshly leaked emails reveal resentful disdain toward Sanders, as party favored Clinton long before any votes were cast”
The scandal was so terrible that Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned from her position as chair of the Democratic party. But the question still remains to this day; Why is Hillary still the candidate? By their own admission the DNC deliberately placed Hillary as candidate and undermined Bernie Sanders. What’s more damning, is the fact that the DNC broke their own charter violations by favoring Clinton.
That is a lot of risk at such great length over a favorite. A huge gamble in fact risking the loss in the general over backroom deals and hi-jinks in the primaries to ensure the DNC favorite candidate is the nominee.
The DNC primaries was rigged, and willfully admitted by the DNC. Plain and simple.
Reconciling the party…
The DNC agenda is still in play. Their favorite nominee is still the nominee. Meanwhile Bernie Sanders fans are debating to even turn out to vote in the General. How the DNC plans to win back the masses that they lost since the convention is simple. Make Donald Trump look like the worst of two evils.
Donald Trump, pre-presidential run, no one really had a terrible opinion about him, except that he was maybe a bit rash or too rough around the edges but most of his original fans found that interesting about him.
Since Donald Trump’s nomination, corporate media turned up the heat on him FULL BLAST. There has not been a day that has passed that an article was not written about him, casting doubts about his “temperament”, “racism”, and now all of a sudden, he’s a “rapist”. From zero to rapist in a matter of months.
I am not defending Trump or anybody by that fact. Now before you scoff and dismiss this as pure “conspiracy theorist”. Please remember that the DNC initially said the same thing about Sander’s supporters when they raised questions about the legitimacy of the DNC’s relationship with the HRC campaign.
The DNC, realizing that the cat was out of the bag, had to develop a plan in order to have any chance of winning the general election. After all, rigging the primaries instills a drop in voter confidence in your party. There was only one way. Smear the daylights out of Trump. They had four months to turn it around and do it. And for the most part, they have been successful. Trump is viewed now as a rapey Hitler.
What you are about to read is disturbing…
Enter willing corporate media. Now understand something. When Bernie Sanders is on the warpath against Wall Street, that includes giant multinational corporations that have roots in Wall Street. This may trouble you, but 90% of our mainstream media, is owned by only 6 of these mega-corporations. So in order to protect their profits, they have to have someone willing to play the game, quid pro quo, and that person was definitely not Bernie Sanders. Hillary however, is a seasoned veteran of this game as revealed through Wikileaks.
Wikileaks dumped thousands of emails including a transcript of Hillary’s speech to Goldman Sachs.
“There’s nothing magic about regulations, too much is bad, too little is bad. How do you get to the golden key, how do we figure out what works? And the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry.” — Hillary Clinton (Goldman Sachs speech)
Rather than instituting serious finance reforms, Hillary indicated that the best people to institute Wall Street reform, was Wall Street themselves. A glaring contrast to that of Bernie Sanders. There was a reason why Bernie Sanders demanded that HRC release her transcripts, and there was a reason she withheld them.
Thus in order to preserve their modus operandi, a Hillary Clinton presidency must be secured, otherwise Wall Street will have a reckoning.
Remember Bernie fans, your nominee was sandbagged, and the DNC will do it again.
