DNC’s Perez says Trump a bully, ‘didn’t win election’

The face of the DNC, Tom Perez

The DNC is off to a great start, in my opinion!

From Fox News: New Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez on Friday night said President Trump “didn’t win the election” and suggested his Republican Party doesn’t care about voters.

The comments by Perez, Labor secretary under President Obama, appear to leave little doubt about the direction in which he will try to take the struggling committee.

“Donald Trump, you don’t stand for our values. You didn’t win this election,” Perez said at the rally hosted by the New Jersey Working Families Alliance, according to a video posted by The Daily Caller.

Washington Democrats have since 2010 lost control of the House, then the Senate and the White House in 2016.

The defeat last year of frontrunner Hillary Clinton was an especially tough loss, considering hacked emails revealed that committee leaders tried to give Clinton the edge over primary challengers. And committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Florida, resigned in the aftermath.

Perez spoke Friday in Newark, ahead of the state’s gubernatorial election in November, and thanked attendees for participating in the worldwide protests after Trump took office in January. “We have a bully in Washington in the White House,” he also said, according to several news reports.

Perez was elected by Democrats in February, in a close race with Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress.

The contest was considered one between a progressive and an establishment candidate in Perez and raised concerns about whether either could reconnect with disaffected, Middle American loyalists who this time voted for Trump.

CNN leaked debate questions to Hillary; thinks it’s scary that Dow hits all-time highs after Trump win

With 6 successive days of increases, the stock market clearly approves of the result of the historic election of 2016.

Fred Impert reports for CNBC that investors and traders quickly honed into Trump’s economic policies, which could lead to higher infrastructure spending and less regulation within financials.

Here’s how the stock market and other economic indices performed since Trump was elected:

  • Last week was a record-setting one for the Dow, as it hit new all-time highs and posted its best weekly performance since 2011. Yesterday, the Dow hit an all-time high, gaining 21 points.
  • The S&P and Nasdaq posted their highest weekly gains since 2013 and February, respectively.
  • The Russell 2000, which is composed of small-cap stocks, hit its first record high since June 2015.
  • The rally in stocks has come simultaneously with a sharp sell-off in U.S. Treasuries, sending yields soaring. As of 2:51 p.m. ET yesterday, the two-year note yield traded at 0.972%, while the benchmark 10-year yield gained around 10 basis points to 2.219%, its highest level since Dec. 31, 2015. Robert Pavilk, chief market strategist at Boston Private Wealth, expects even higher yields in the long-term.
  • The U.S. dollar has also soared, trading 1.03% higher at 100.07 against a basket of currencies. The euro fell around 1% to $1.073 and the yen dropped more than 1.5% to 108.44. Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said: “Dollar bullish investors stole the show during trading on Monday with the Dollar Index surging to eleven-month highs at 100.00 as expectations intensified over the Federal Reserve raising US interest rates in December” which is good news for savers. Otunuga observed, “The Dollar’s appreciation was complimented with optimism towards Trump’s administration bolstering spending and reviving inflation, a move seen as supporting economic growth in the States.”

Kim Forrest, senior equity analyst at Fort Pitt Capital, said, “Investors clearly are optimistic.” Bruce McCain, chief investment strategist at Key Private Bank, said, “At this point, investors are trying to price in what’s going to happen. I think there is a possibility for change, … but how much he [Trump] can actually do remains to be seen.”

Meanwhile, CNN or the Clinton News Network, manages to see only negatives in the stock performance.

While noting that “The Dow jumped nearly 600 points — a 3.2% gain — in the three days after Trump’s victory” and “was up again Monday and hit a new all-time high in the process,” and pointing out the obvious — that “There remains a great deal of uncertainty over what type of president Trump will actually be” — the conclusion of CNN’s Paul R. La Monica is:

“That is scary.”

What’s “scary” is how CNN remains unrepentant and unregenerate in its in-your-face pro-Hillary bias. Why, CNN even fed debate questions in advance to Hillary Clinton’s people, as shown in two email exchanges between longtime Democrat Party apparatchik Donna Brazile and Hillary’s campaign officials, all published by WikiLeaks.

Donna Brazile

At the time of the leakage, Brazile was a commenter on CNN. On July 24, 2016, Brazile replaced DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz after WikiLeaks emails revealed Wasserman Schultz had plotted to sabotage Hillary’s Democratic Primary rival Bernie Sanders. See:

Here’s the first email from then CNN commenter Donna Brazile, in which she leaked in advance a question that would be asked in the CNN-hosted Democratic Primary Debate on March 6, 2016:

Subject: One of the questions directed to HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton] tomorrow is from a woman with a rash

Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl [people] of Flint [Michigan].

Sent from Donna’s I Pad. Follow me on twitter @donnabrazile

Sure enough, at the debate the next day, Hillary was asked that question from audience member Mikki Wade whose family was affected by the poisoned water.

The second email was dated March 12, 2016, with its subject as “From time to time I get the questions in advance,” in which Brazile leaked a debate question on the death penalty:

On Mar 12, 2016, at 4:39 PM, Donna Brazile <donna@brazileassociates.com> wrote:

Here’s one that worries me about HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton].

DEATH PENALTY

19 states and the District of Columbia have banned the death penalty. 31 states, including Ohio, still have the death penalty. According to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, since 1973, 156 people have been on death row and later set free. Since 1976, 1,414 people have been executed in the U.S. That’s 11% of Americans who were sentenced to die, but later exonerated and freed. Should Ohio and the 30 other states join the current list and abolish the death penalty?

Sent from Donna’s I Pad. Follow me on twitter @donnabrazile

Surprise! – not. In a CNN town hall debate the following day, Hillary received the question about the death penalty verbatim from an audience member.

Brazile has since denied receiving or furnishing the Clinton campaign with any town hall questions, and dismissed the Wikileaks organization as “sad ass whipper leakers [trying] to destroy [her] groove.”

The publishing of Brazile’s emails by WikiLeaks resulted in Brazile’s “resignation” from CNN on October 14, 2016, with CNN saying: “We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.” (Source: Wikipedia)

DNC Staffer Screams At Donna Brazile For Helping Elect Donald Trump

popcorn-time-gif

From HuffPo: On Thursday, Democratic Party officials held their first staff meeting since Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss to Donald Trump in the presidential race. It didn’t go well.

Donna Brazile, the interim leader of the Democratic National Committee, was giving what one attendee described as “a rip-roaring speech” to about 150 employees, about the need to have hope for wins going forward, when a staffer identified only as Zach stood up with a question.

“Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.”

donna-brazile

Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down. Brazile began to answer, but Zach had more to say.

“You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.”

drama

Zach gathered his things and began to walk out. When Brazile called after him, asking where he was going, he told her to go outside and “tell people there” why she should be leading the party. Two DNC staffers confirmed the exchange.

Asked for comment, Brazile said in an email, “As you can imagine, the individual involved is a member of the staff and I personally do not wish to discuss our internal meetings.”

A DNC spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

Brazile, a seasoned Democratic strategist, is the DNC’s interim chair until March 2017, when party officials hold a full DNC meeting to elect a new chair. Brazile has been filling in since July, when then-chair Wasserman Schultz stepped down after WikiLeaks released internal DNC emails showing party officials trying to help Clinton win the Democratic primary.

img-cs---debbie-wasserman-schultz_173443774497

Brazile ran into her own bit of trouble in October when Wikileaks released emails showing that, in her role as a CNN strategist, she shared questions for CNN-sponsored candidate events in advance with friends on Clinton’s campaign.

Neither of the DNC staffers who spoke to HuffPost knew Zach’s last name, or much about him. They noted that he wasn’t alone in his sentiments. Some in the room nodded as he spoke, they said, and after he left, some talked about him being right on some points (perhaps not his claims about imminent death by climate change).

A third attendee told HuffPost that, despite Zach’s blow-up, there was “overwhelming” support for Brazile in the room. Her motivational words “had some staffers in tears,” per this attendee, and Brazile spoke to Zach’s concerns after he left. “If he had stayed, he would have heard that,” this person said.

Brazile could move to stay on as chair after March, but Thursday’s meeting shows at least some party officials want fresh blood at the top.

“The party is at a crossroads. They have been using the same playbook for decades, and now, they won’t let anyone else come in and change it up,” said one former longtime DNC staffer, who requested anonymity to speak freely. “The fact that Democrats just sat through a devastating defeat and now have to trust the leadership that not only contributed to Clinton’s loss, but the crushing 2014 midterm losses, well, what do they expect?”

The Left have excuses ready for a Hillary defeat

In another sign that things are not going well for Hillary and the Democrats know it, four days ago on Sept. 19, 2016. the liberal Huffington Post even published what it calls a “premature obituary” on “Why Hillary Lost“.

Written by three HuffPo editors, including its “global editorial director” Howard Fineman, the essay is a preemptive move warning journalists that they will be blamed for a Hillary defeat.

Howard Fineman, Jason Linkins and Lauren Weber write that if Trump wins:

“no one who lost the battle will want to admit it was Hillary Clinton’s fault. It will have had nothing to do with, say, ‘transparency’ or calling bearded villagers ‘deplorables’ or the Iraq War vote or the simple fact that middle-of-the-road Clintonism ran out of gas as a public philosophy.

No, other individuals, groups and forces will have to be blamed. In fact, they already are, pre-emptively. If Trump wins, we’re all going to be too busy moving to Canada to read the postmortems (or write them), so we offer them to you now:”

circular firing squad

The three HuffPo editors then give a list of 9 scapegoats who will be blamed for why Hillary lost the election, beginning with the MSM as the numero uno:

  1. The Media: “Everyone’s piñata.”
  2. The Russians: “Actually, they arrived long ago and got into her phone.”
  3. Millenials: “Ugh. F**king idealists….”
  4. Bernie Sanders: Hillary should have run unopposed in the primary. “It’s going to be an endless wail about how Sanders should have withdrawn sooner.”
  5. Bill Clinton: ” Best campaigner of all time and he couldn’t close the sale. He lost his mojo.”
  6. Sexists: “F**king glass ceiling.”
  7. Obama people
  8. FBI Director James Comey: “He might as well have indicted her for real, like he did in the court of public opinion. Extremely careless.”
  9. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC: Although Wasserman-Schutz’s “Soviet-style approach to boosting Clinton was something that Hillary’s campaign was happy to countenance,” the former DNC chair “should have left room for dissent rather than let it bottle up.”

Of course, what HuffPo conveniently left out is this reason:

hillary-handcuffed-9-11-2016

And this reason:

hillary-clinton-screams-why-arent-i-50-points-ahead

And this reason:

“Just one more step, and then we’ll go inside and plug you in for the night.”

“Just one more step, and then we’ll go inside and plug you in for the night.”

And this reason:

Hillary having a brain seizure

And this reason:

Hillary Nixon

And, for the deplorables who have been paying attention all along, this reason:

Hillary Clinton what difference does it make

Fitness guru Michelle Obama gets porky, but Obama calls Americans ‘lazy’

Remember this pic of the Obamas in my post, “Obamas end last taxpayer-paid Martha’s Vineyard vacation“?

Obamas' last Martha's Vineyard taxpayer-paid vacay Aug. 2016I noticed, at the time, that FLPOS Mooch was getting chunky (look at the size of her thighs!), and made fun of her by posing her next to Star Wars’ Chewy the Wookie:

Michelle Obama leaves Martha's Vineyard, Aug. 21, 2016

According to National Enquirer, 5′ 11″ Mooch had packed on 95 pounds and now weighs 257 pounds.

Below are pics of the First Wookie at the White House state dinner for Singapore Prime Minister and wife on August 2, 2016. Oink! Oink!

I’m making a point of this only because Mooch, with her “healthy” school lunches that kids just throw away, had sanctimoniously lectured to Americans on physical fitness.

Meanwhile, yesterday, without Mooch by his side, the POS ditched his wedding ring at a townhall meeting in Laos, S.E. Asia. Strangely, he had worn that ring back when he was a student at Occidental College, long before he met Mooch. (See “Another Obama mystery: He wore a wedding ring as a single man“)

Obama in Laos, Sept. 7, 2016.

At the Laotian townhall meeting, Obama repeatedly called Americans “lazy,” as well as isolated and ignorant, which is rich coming from him who misses 6 of 10 of his daily intelligence briefings. In 2014, then Chair of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman-Schultz admitted Obama is lazy.

This is not the first time Obama had called Americans lazy. See my post of November 15, 2011, “Obama Blames Americans for Being Lazy”.

Just think, in about 4 months, we’ll see the last of Barry and Mooch in the White House. WooHoo!

Hacked emails show Democratic National Committee to be corrupt arm of Hillary

Ask a Democrat about Richard Nixon, and you’ll get an earful about Nixon’s dirty campaign tricks. There’s a reason why his nickname is Tricky Dick.

But it’s a case of the pot calling the kettle black, as shown by some 2,000 Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails hacked by Guccifer 2.0 and recently released by WikiLeaks.

Those emails show that the DNC is thoroughly corrupt. Long before Hillary Clinton won the 2016 Democratic primary elections and became her party’s presumptive presidential nominee, the DNC had become her tool, planning and undertaking dirty tricks to protect her and to undermine her opponents Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.

If Democrats have even a shred of honesty, they would acknowledge that Hillary Clinton is worse than Richard Nixon — many times worse. At least Nixon did not heartlessly abandon four Americans to die in Benghazi, Libya.

Hillary anti-Christ hellfire

Chuck Ross reports for The Daily Caller, July 22, 2016, that WikiLeaks released nearly 20,000 emails it says are from the accounts of Democratic National Committee (DNC) officials, which could cloud the upcoming Democratic party convention that begins Monday in Philadelphia. The emails were obtained by a self-described Romanian hacker (or hackers) going by the name Guccifer 2.0 through the DNC’s computer systems, but many suspect the hackers to be a team of Russians.

In addition to DNC emails, other documents released by the hacker(s) include internal planning memos and databases of Democratic donors. The DNC, chaired by Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has admitted that their systems were infiltrated.

The emails, dated from Jan. 2015 to May 25, 2016, come from the accounts of DNC officials. According to WikiLeaks, which is operated by Julian Assange, the release is “part one” of a series it is calling “Hillary Leaks.”

So far, this is what the DNC emails reveal:

(1) Collusion between journalists and the DNC to protect Hillary

In an email from DNC national press secretary and deputy communications director Mark Paustenbach to DNC communications director (and former White House Director of Hispanic Media) Luis Miranda, Paustenbach said Politico‘s chief investigative reporter Ken Vogel “gave me his story,” which was unflattering to Hillary, to read “ahead of time,” before the story goes to Vogel’s editors. Paustenback then asked Miranda to “Let me know if you see anything that’s missing and I’ll push back.”

Mark Paustenbach, Luis Miranda, Ken Vogel

Here’s a screenshot I took of that email from WikiLeaks (click image to enlarge):

In his story, Vogel wrote that although the Hillary Victory Fund was billed as a joint fundraising effort between the Clinton campaign, DNC and state Democratic parties, only a small fraction of funds raised actually went to state parties.

Given a heads up by Vogel, Hillary’s campaign pushed back on the report with a spin by Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin, who told CNN: “Funds raised through the Hillary Victory Fund are now being used to fund and staff organizing programs in Ohio, Virginia, Florida and states across the country that will register voters, recruit volunteers and organize Democrats to turn out and support candidates up and down the ballot.”

(2) Proposal to undermine Bernie Sanders by publicizing he’s a Jew

In an email on May 5, 2016, from DNC chief financial officer Brad Marshall to Miranda, Paustenbach and CEO of DNC Amy Dacey, Marshall proposes that “we get someone” in Kentucky and West Virginia to ask Bernie Sanders about his (religious) belief — whether he believes “in a God” — in order to impress on Southern Baptists that Bernie is a Jew and an atheist.

Amy DaceyHere’s a screenshot of the email (click to enlarge):

WikiLeaks DNC email2(3) DNC approved of fake CraigsList ad to smear Trump as a sexist pig

In an email to Paustenbach and Miranda on May 18, 2016, DNC deputy communications director Christina Freundlich sought their approval for placing a fictitious ad on CraigsList, soliciting “hot women” to work for Donald Trump, who are prepared to endure public humiliation if they gain weight, and to be greeted by Trump “with a kiss on the lips” or a grope “under the meeting table”. The fake ad was approved by DNC communications director Luis Miranda.

Hillary Clinton is not yet president. Imagine what she and the Democrats would do if she is. Dirty campaign tricks are piffling compared to the “tricks” to come.

Why was an elite Democrat at the Republican National Convention?

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is the chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Here she is, spotted by independent investigative journalist Wayne Madsen yesterday at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz at 2016 RNC Cleveland

So, what was she doing at the RNC?

An even better question is why was the chair of the Democratic National Committee in the upper tier skyboxes of the RNC’s Quicken Loans Arena, which are reserved for fat cat GOP donors?
