2. Democracy in the DNC is over!

February 12, 2016
Debbie Wasserman Schultz asked to explain how Hillary lost NH primary by 22% but came away with same number of delegates
By Thomas Lifson
The chair of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has had her thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton, like the rest of the party establishment. When Hillary thought she was a shoo-in, they limited the number of debates and scheduled them in time slots where no one was watching. Now that Sanders is giving her a hard run, miraculously, new debates have been scheduled for prime time.
Then there is the Democratic Party’s use of superdelegates, party office holders, and insiders, designed specifically to keep top-down control of the nomination process, so that even a 22-point landslide in New Hampshire for Sanders yielded the same number of delegates as Hillary got.
Prior to the Democratic presidential debate in Milwaukee last night, CNN’s Jake Tapper had the audacity to ask the DNC chair about this. The expression on Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s face is priceless when Tapper asks her to explain to “voters new to the process” who might feel “this is all rigged” because of the superdelegates.
Tre Goins-Phillips of TheBlaze summarizes the evasive yet unintentionally revealing answer:
The DNC chairwoman explained to Tapper that the unpledged delegates, or the superdelegates, are a completely separate category from the pledged delegates, which Clinton and Sanders were competing for in the Granite State.
So far, so good. But then:
“Unpledged delegates exist, really, to make sure that party leaders and elected officials don’t have to be in a position where they are running against grassroots activists,” Wasserman Shultz said, adding that the Democratic Party “highlights inclusiveness and diversity at our convention” and wants to give activists “every opportunity” to participate, which she says it what the superdelegates are for.
Wait a minute! If grassroots activists turn out for a candidate the way they did for Sanders, the superdelegates nullify the resulting margin of victory. I guess by saying they “don’t have to be in a position where they are running against grassroots activists,” DWS means they don’t even have to go to the voters to get their way.
Thanks for explaining. This is what happens in a battle of wits with an unarmed party.

Also: Grassroots Clinton field offices co-located at DNC offices
In a recent VICE News report, reporter Pete Voelker described seeing firsthand how the Clinton campaign had rented a campaign office within the local Democratic Party office in Nevada, a crucial early primary state. Indeed, both the Clinton field office and the Carson City Democratic Party list the same address: 502 E. John Street.
“With its walls papered with Hillary Clinton signs and the seats carefully arranged for the Hillary for America ribbon-cutting, it was hard to tell where the Democratic Party’s office ended and the Clinton office began. There were a few signs referencing Obama and the Affordable Care Act, but as far as I could tell, there weren’t any that mentioned the two other Democrats running for president.”
However, Sanders campaign spokeswoman Joan Kato said no local Democratic Party officials offered any office space to their Nevada operations.
“None of our offices are located within the Nevada State Democratic Party or any of their affiliate offices,” Kato told VICE News.

3. Tim Black is the perfect antidote to the Clintons' swiftboating of Bernie on his civil

rights record. Hopefully, this primary race will retire the Clintons from politics.
