Former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile said the Democratic party was "leeched of its vitality" by former President Barack Obama and others in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) Obama "used the party to provide for political expenses like gifts to donors, and political travel," Brazile wrote, adding that the politician also used DNC funds for "his pollster and focus groups" later into his second term although he couldn´t run for president again. "This was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went
Comments: The DNC was O´s slush fund. I wonder how many laws were broken when pillaging and vandalizing.
So Brazile now employs the “You Always Hurt the One You Love” defense for the abuse exacted upon the Democrat Party by Obama, the Clintons, and Wasserschultz. What a load of horse hockey. Even during her hour of contrition, Brazile fails go see the truth about all these grifters: third rate minds, second rate crooks, first rate liars. Hillary Clinton did not ever and still does not consider the putative needs of any Democrat save one: herself. Same goes for Obama. Wasserschultz is a slight variation on this theme in that she does not consider anything at all. Brazile is giving the old college try in her quest for a moment of clarity but all she has accomplished so far is to mischaracterize the players of 2016 in a new way.
MY question is why is Donna telling all and the media helping her. And why´ve after knowing and telling all I see she still a devout democrat. What I said she up to. I know she wants to sell books. Which I will not buy. But something is just not adding up. There is more to this info getting out then just the kindness of donnas little heart in wanting to inform the public. Would you be a dem after reading all this corruption within the DNC. Normal people would go independent.
I initially thought that Donna was trying to get out ahead of the shenanigans of the DNC and the Clinton camp so she´s not the fall guy if bad things happen. Or that the Dem powers that be had decided that it was time to move the Clintons off the stage.After all HRC was acting a fool on her book tour and hinting at a run in 2020.
But upon reflection I think there is something else going on -and that is laying the groundwork for Moochelle to run in 2020. Donna is trying to clear the decks pushing out the Clintons while still maintaining her Dem creds so she can run Moochelle´s campaign.
Donna is an old school tough but good Democrat. I always enjoyed her candor and big personality. There are few left in the party like her. The party is terminal and she knows it. This is why she´s coming out with her book saying...Hey, I was there but I´m not one of them. Last night on Tucker, she said reiterated that she was from the old school of politics. No doubt, there´ll be a few more books written about the corruption in the party. Expect one from Doug Schoen.
“I knew that these three did not do this with malice. I knew if you woke any of them up in the middle of the night to ask them how they felt about the Democratic Party they would answer with sincerity that they loved this party and all it had done for the country and for them.
Things the Democratic Party has done for the country: - Social Security Bankruptcy Fund - Medicare Bankruptcy Fund - Fighting, then setting back American race relations 50 years. - Creating the Bureaucratic Kraken that inundates our lives. - Always blaming rather than taking responsibility. - Destroying the Constitution by paper cuts, incisions, and wild slashing. - Supporting the murder of the unborn. - Lack of support of a strong America - economically, militarily, and spiritually.
I´m sure there´s more, but that´s off the top of my head.
FTA: "As I saw it, these three titanic egos–Barack, Hillary, and Debbie–had stripped the party to a shell for their own purposes,” Brazile wrote. (snip) “I knew that these three did not do this with malice.”
I am always amazed at the ethical gymnastics of the Socialist Globalist Grifters. Obviously the powers that be (Soros et al) have decided its time to cut loose the burning hulls of the destroyer Soetoro, the Flying Monkeys aircraft carrier, and the Wash Water tanker. Bring on the fire bucket brigade! The wicked witch is dead!
Yet at the same time they tell the crews that none of it was done with malice, so it’s OK to still vote Democrat. What the Hillary?
As I understand it, Brazile mentions in her book that after the murder of Seth Rich she took extreme cautions to improve the security of her home and made sure the curtains were closed so that no sharpshooter or sniper could kill her too. Brazile is the ´insiders, insider´. She KNOWS the Dem party and the Clinton machine, top down. She has worked for the party ALL of her adult life. (About 40 years)
This is all GREAT stuff coming out, and if she survives it all, it might encourage other ´insiders´ to come forward (which has NEVER happened like THIS before). Which may eventually make it silly for Congress to NOT start investigations into these lawless democrap power brokers, aka 0bama, Clinton and the like.
Maybe I´m jaded but from what I can tell she´s just a hack herself, trying to further her career with a fake "tell all" book. Her revelations are boring and incomplete. No real news is revealed, no red meat: no smoking guns; no names; no buried bodies, figurative or real. After the book run she, no doubt, wants to run campaigns again. The Clintons are over and a new crop of people will make up the Democrat field who are younger and darker. She is jockeying into position and is jettisoning unnecessary baggage. Ever so gently.
I do NOT like Donna Brazile even though she is personally likeable. She is still a dyed-in-the-wool liberal/progressive/socialist/communist Democrat and her likeability just makes her all the more dangerous. Any rift in the modern Democrat Party is like the fight between Lenin and Trotsky - no matter who wins it is not good for liberty or America.
Brazile is trying to save the dem, -now socialist, party by exposing the truth about Mrs. slick & 0bama and, ´throw them under the bus.´ ...She and the party insiders must have someone else in mind to lead their party´s socialist agenda. Socialists have only one goal in mind and that is total power for their socialist fantasy.
I can´t believe my eyes. Is there something in the water? How can any poster on this site say that they like this creature??? She was a willing participant in giving slithery the questions to the debate. Believe me when I tell you that had cankles won this book would NEVER have been published and Brazile would be happily ensconced in a cushy job in the administration sucking the poor taxpayers dry. There is NOTHING to like about this "thing" called Brazile.
The intentions and integrity of a Democrat can only be trusted if and when they remove themselves from Organized Crime(D). Brazile has chosen to remain in Organized Crime(D) and therefore cannot be trusted.
If she was in fact serious, she would have reported top-tier Democrat crimes, especially those related to Enemedia collusion, to law enforcement. She has not done so.
Don´t think for one minute she is not thrashing Hillary or Obama! I rarely disagree with Rush, but I don´t know how she can be paving the way for Mooch by calling out Obama for his "titanic ego" that was only concerned with his legacy.
I think it reads (what we have seen) like a dedicated Democrat that used to have some clout with the Clintons and the Dem party, and she found out toot sweet she was to follow the bosses at the campaign (not Hillary, but her staff).
How she ends the book lets us know how she now feels about Hillary. Too bad she didn´t pay attention a few years ago. We could have told her how the Clinton´s use everyone as long as they serve a purpose. Once you don´t, they have no care or concern for you at all.
Tesla said it would rather spend money on litigation and “fight to the ends of the Earth” than give in to what it called extortion and abuse of the legal system connected to a recent lawsuit alleging racism at the company’s factory in Fremont, Calif. Tesla earlier this week was hit by a class-action lawsuit by former worker Marcus Vaughn, calling the company a hotbed of racist behavior. That was the latest legal action involving allegations of racism at Tesla. In a blog post late Monday, Tesla sought to contest certain allegations in the lawsuit and said that it takes
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A major blackout hit Puerto Rico´s most populated region on Wednesday just as the government announced it had met its goal of 50 percent power generation nearly two months after Hurricane Maria struck as a Category 4 storm. The Electric Power Authority said it dispatched crews to investigate why a key 230 kilovolt line that connects the island´s northern and southern regions had failed for the second time in a week. The blackout affected the capital of San Juan and nearby cities and towns along the U.S. territory´s north coast, provoking a groan from people
MINNEAPOLIS – A 20-year-old Minneapolis man is facing assault charges after allegedly stabbing two men in a fitting room at Macy’s at the Mall of America Sunday night. Mahad Abdiraham was charged with two counts of first-degree assault causing great bodily harm in connection with the incident. According to the charges, a 19-year-old man who was with at family members at the Mall of America to shop came out of a dressing room to show his family pants he was thinking of buying. When the man returned to the dressing room, Abdiraham was near the room and appeared as if
America´s political establishment just will not take a hint. The latest evidence is the growing buzz surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden´s potential presidential candidacy in 2020. Appearing in a series of interviews for his new book, Biden is now not ruling out a run for the White House.One question: Why is this anything other than a joke?It´s one thing to be depressed and disappointed about Donald Trump´s victory, but have these people forgotten everything we learned from the 2016 election?Apparently so. Not only did the ultimate outsider win the election, but the second most formidable force throughout the contest
Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her when she was just 16 years old. According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas. This is the sixth woman to publicly accuse the 41st president of grabbing her butt without consent. Speaking to Time magazine, Corrigan, who is now in her early 30s, said, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything,” she
A teacher is facing disciplinary action at his school after he referred to a transgender pupil as a girl, although the student identifies as a boy. Joshua Sutcliffe, a Christian pastor from Oxford, admitted he said "Well done girls" when addressing a group including the student. He described it as a "slip of the tongue", but said he believed biological sex was defined at birth. The school said it would be "inappropriate" to comment. Mr Sutcliffe, who teaches children aged between 11 and 18, said the incident took place on 2 November. He said a week-long investigation found he had
For Democrats, signs everywhere suddenly look rosy. They won smashing victories last week in Virginia and other states. With voters giving the Trump presidency and the Republican-led Congress dismal grades, and the Democratic grass roots re-energized, hope is widespread for a takeover of the House of Representatives and a strong run in the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections. (Snip) What’s more, the electoral landscape is tilted against them for reasons besides gerrymandering. Liberal voters and racial minorities tend to be clustered in major cities and their suburbs, concentrating the Democratic base in a smaller number of congressional districts, even
RICHMOND, Va. — Unease over violent white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville this summer and President Donald Trump´s response loomed in the minds of many Virginia voters during Tuesday´s elections in which Democrats made significant gains, according to progressive advocacy groups and interviews with voters. The governor´s race was one of Virginia´s most racially charged in recent memory, and voters were peppered with ads that referenced the August violence. (Snip) In the governor´s race, Northam´s TV attacks on Gillespie focused more on his lobbying career than racial issues, but a Northam mailer lumped Gillespie in with the torch-wielding white supremacists in
Sign of the times in Rome: the city´s cash-strapped administration is eyeing up the coins tossed by tourists into the celebrated Trevi Fountain. Previously swept up and handed over to Catholic charity Caritas, the coins, which can add up to as much as a million euros a year, will now be claimed by Mayor Virginia Raggi for projects to be decided by a city hall working group, according to reports in the local media on Friday. Legend has it that anyone who lobs a piece of change into the nearly 300-year-old fountain while facing away from the Baroque masterpiece is
Calling violence in Baltimore “out of control,” Mayor Catherine Pugh ordered 30 agency heads to meet every morning at police headquarters, and to make crime reduction the top mission not only of police, but also of health workers, housing officials and public works crews. (Snip) Killings in the city have surged past 300 this year for a third year in a row. Violent crime is up 13 percent over last year, and reports of groups of youths attacking people apparently at random have dominated recent local news cycles. Pugh said she was calling on businesses and philanthropies to help fund
When it comes to holiday shopping sprees, Black Friday is no longer the prime event. A new analysis finds that more shoppers are choosing to spread out their holiday purchases rather than stick with the ritual of rising before dawn the morning after Thanksgiving in order to stand in line outside a store and then shop until they drop. During the week that includes Thanksgiving, 35% of shoppers say they intend to do most of their shopping on Black Friday this year, down from 59% in 2015, according to the analysis released Tuesday by consultancy PwC. Retailers are rolling out deep-discount deals, the "doorbusters" that were
The Republican members of the elite Winged Foot Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, are angry after the club management refused to honor and put up a portrait of President Donald Trump in the club. Trump is a member of the elite club that charges as much as $200,000 as its initiation fees, and the Republicans among the 800 members of the club have been asking to have a POTUS portrait hung inside the clubhouse. According to Page Six, an insider at the club said, "Trump has been a member of this club since 1969, and there is a
Former model Leann Tweeden accused Minnesota Sen. Al Franken Thursday of harassing her multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006. Tweeden alleges that Franken, a writer for Saturday Night Live before he became a Senator, wrote a script that featured him kissing her, and harassed her during rehearsals, Tweeden writes for KABC. When Tweeden returned from the tour, she noticed a photo from the tour where Franken has his hands on her breasts and is smiling into the camera. “You knew exactly what you were doing. You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my
Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual
The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special
Lil Peep, a fast-rising rapper whose emotional tracks charted depression and drug use, has died aged 21. His UK representative confirmed the news to the Guardian. Gustav Åhr, who grew up in Long Beach, New York, was reportedly taken to hospital following an overdose, according to music manager Adam Grandmaison.

President Barack Obama mingled with Democratic leadership and high-powered donors at a New York City mansion on Tuesday, while raising money for the cash-strapped political party. Democrats are entering the 2018 election cycle amid financial struggles, with many donors declining to give after the party´s devastating loss to Donald Trump in 2016. Even the fundraising event on Tuesday night, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Senate Victory Fund, drew few attendees, according to photos captured exclusively by DailyMail.com. The fundraiser was held at the palatial Upper East Side duplex owned by Dennis Mehiel, a former candidate
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that the Senate Ethics Committee should investigate Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) after his bribery and corruption trial ended in a mistrial. “Because of the seriousness of these charges, I am calling on the Senate Ethics committee to immediately investigate Senator Menendez’s actions which led to his indictment," McConnell said in a statement. He added that "Senator Menendez was indicted on numerous federal felonies. He is one of only twelve U.S. senators to have been indicted in our history." Menendez´s bribery and corruption trial ended with the judge declaring a mistrial on Thursday after jurors
Multiple NFL owners have engaged in discussions about removing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from the league. (Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in its Nov. 15 letter to Jones’s attorney, David Boies. That letter was shared with all of the league’s 32 owners. It was
Following The Gateway Pundit’s viral story on Judge Roy Moore’s alleged signature inside accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook, more evidence suggests it may be a forgery.On Monday, CNN published photos of the signature showing two different inks. The signature says “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.” Strangely, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy,” is written in black ink, while “Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House,” is in blue ink.

LOS ANGELES- Three UCLA basketball players detained for shoplifting at three high-end stores in China publicly apologized Wednesday before coach Steve Alford announced they were being suspended indefinitely. Freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley won’t be allowed to suit up, practice or travel with the team while the university continues to sort out the circumstances of last week’s incident in Hangzhou, China, Alford said during a news conference at Pauley Pavilion. ”These are good young men who have exercised an inexcusable lapse of judgment and now they have to live with that,” Alford said. ”They let a lot
A Texas sheriff reportedly threatened to bring disorderly conduct charges against a truck driver for displaying a profane anti-Trump sticker on the rear window of the vehicle. Sheriff Troy Nehls in Ford Bend County told the Houston Chronicle that he had received many complaints about the sticker, which read: “F--- TRUMP AND F--- YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.” Nehls posted a photo of the truck and the offending sticker on his Facebook page with the following message: “I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359.

Senator Al Franken’s past jokes about rape and other forms of inappropriate sexual conduct resurfaced Thursday after a radio anchor accused him of forcefully kissing her during a rehearsal and of groping her breasts while she slept on a flight from Afghanistan following a USO tour in December 2006. (Snip) Franken once joked about child rape during a comedic roast of film director Rob Reiner. Franken laid out a scene where Reiner’s father, Carl, would invite famous friends over to rape his son. “On a typical night, Carl would slip into Rob’s bed, roll him over, swab him down and
