As more time passes since the 2016 Presidential election, the more shenanigans are revealed on the part of the Democratic National Committee in an effort to rig the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
Former interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile continues to drop bombshells in an effort to put as much distance between herself and the Clinton’s as possible. Perhaps it is merely an “insurance policy” of sorts to prevent herself from being added to the Clinton body count or perhaps she has finally had an attack of conscience. Maybe she is attempting to deflect blame from herself for her own poor decisions, either way, the revelations are truly astounding!
Brazile began sounding the alarm last year on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, claiming Hillary took money from state parties to fund her second failed presidential campaign. Brazile revealed in an op-ed published in Politico Magazine that the DNC was broke and in serious debt all courtesy of former President Barack Obama.
Brazile wrote in her op-ed – “Obama left the party $24 million in debt — $15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign — and had been paying that off very slowly.”
Brazile then revealed that Hillary’s campaign fund known as Hillary for America, as well as the Hillary Victory Fund, a fundraising organization that worked hand in hand with the DNC had “taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.”
According to Brazile’s own testimony, she states – “The Saturday morning after the convention in July, I called Gary Gensler, the chief financial officer of Hillary’s campaign. He wasted no words. He told me the Democratic Party was broke and $2 million in debt.
“What?” I screamed. “I am an officer of the party and they’ve been telling us everything is fine and they were raising money with no problems.”
That wasn’t true, he said. Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books. Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign and had been paying that off very slowly. Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016. Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.
If I didn’t know about this, I assumed that none of the other officers knew about it, either. That was just Debbie’s way. In my experience, she didn’t come to the officers of the DNC for advice and counsel. She seemed to make decisions on her own and let us know at the last minute what she had decided, as she had done when she told us about the hacking only minutes before the Washington Post broke the news.
On the phone, Gary told me the DNC had needed a $2 million loan, which the campaign had arranged.
“No! That can’t be true!” I said. “The party cannot take out a loan without the unanimous agreement of all of the officers.”
“Gary, how did they do this without me knowing?” I asked. “I don’t know how Debbie relates to the officers,” Gary said. He described the party as fully under the control of Hillary’s campaign, which seemed to confirm the suspicions of the Bernie camp.
The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearinghouse. Under FEC law, an individual can contribute a maximum of $2,700 directly to a presidential campaign. But the limits are much higher for contributions to state parties and a party’s national committee.
Individuals who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit to the campaign could write an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund—that figure represented $10,000 to each of the thirty-two states’ parties who were part of the Victory Fund agreement—$320,000—and $33,400 to the DNC.
The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to Brooklyn.
“Wait,” I said. “That victory fund was supposed to be for whoever was the nominee, and the state party races. You’re telling me that Hillary has been controlling it since before she got the nomination?”
Gary said the campaign had to do it or the party would collapse.
“That was the deal that Robby struck with Debbie,” he explained, referring to campaign manager Robby Mook. “It was to sustain the DNC. We sent the party nearly $20 million from September until the convention, and more to prepare for the election.”
“What’s the burn rate, Gary?” I asked. “How much money do we need every month to fund the party?”
The burn rate was $3.5 million to $4 million a month, he said.
I gasped. I had a pretty good sense of the DNC’s operations after having served as interim chair five years earlier. Back then the monthly expenses were half that. What had happened? The party chair usually shrinks the staff between presidential election campaigns, but Debbie had chosen not to do that. She had stuck lots of consultants on the DNC payroll, and Obama’s consultants were being financed by the DNC, too.
When we hung up, I was livid. Not at Gary, but at this mess, I had inherited. I knew that Debbie had outsourced a lot of the management of the party and had not been the greatest at fundraising. I would not be that kind of chair, even if I was only an interim chair. Did they think I would just be a surrogate for them, get on the road and rouse up the crowds?
I was going to manage this party the best I could and try to make it better, even if Brooklyn did not like this. It would be weeks before I would fully understand the financial shenanigans that were keeping the party on life support.”
Brazile went on to reveal her belief that the Democratic party establishment installed her has the head of the DNC with the expectation she would simply be an obedient stooge who would turn a blind eye to the endemic corruption and mismanagement inside the DNC.
Yet, she states she had no intention of keeping quiet when she discovered that Obama’s negligence had left the party in debt, effectively allowing Hillary to play a deciding role in doling out resources, setting strategy, and effectively allowing Hillary a foothold in her attempts to rig the 2016 presidential election. Yet she still lost to current President Donald Trump and nearly two years later, she’s STILL not over it.

Pelosi, Hoyer Take Impeachment Off The Table, Dems Crushed
Get used to it, Democrats. President Trump ain’t going anywhere. Your dreams are ruined!
The top two Democrats in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer , have called a time out on impeaching President Donald Trump, crushing the dreams of thousands of progressive activists and many of their House colleagues.
Pelosi announced the decision to forgo instituting impeachment proceedings on a call with House leaders Tuesday morning telling 170 Democratic Members of Congress on an insane, 90-minute conference call, that the House will instead focus on investigating the President and let the American people decide what to believe in November of 2020.
Fox News reports that Pelosi told her colleagues that “we have to save our democracy.”
“This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans. It’s about saving our democracy. If it is what we need to do to honor our responsibility to the Constitution – if that’s the place the facts take us, that’s the place we have to go,” she added, before claiming that the “facts” simply don’t point to removing the President from office quite yet — but that further investigation could lead there.
“We don’t have to go to articles of impeachment to obtain the facts, the presentation of facts.”
In a letter released ahead of the call, Pelosi got into greater detail.
“While our views range from proceeding to investigate the findings of the Mueller report or proceeding directly to impeachment, we all firmly agree that we should proceed down a path of finding the truth,” Pelosi wrote to Democratic Members. “It is also important to know that the facts regarding holding the president accountable can be gained outside of impeachment hearings.”
“Whether currently indictable or not,” she added, “it is clear that the president has, at a minimum, engaged in highly unethical and unscrupulous behavior which does not bring honor to the office he holds.”
In other words, Pelosi plans on spending the next eighteen months directing multiple investigations into Trump, his finances, his businesses, and his White House, in the hopes that the public impact of such probes will seriously injure the President, giving Democrats an advantage in the 2020 election.
Dems reacted on Twitter:

This is unbelievably disappointing. Even if you don't ultimately pursue impeachment proceedings, why on Earth would you say this today?
Part of the American people making a judgment in 2020 requires a full account of the President's criminality and abuse of power. https://t.co/DB634jA2Fq

Like one patriot wrote:
“I say go for it Nancy. Go ahead, tie up our nation for another 18 months of completely baseless, ridiculous inquiries and accusations. Watch how the American people vote in 2020 when they get so sick of all of the Democratic Party antics. Let’s have another 18 months of keeping our country in a state of suspended animation waiting for the next asinine idea you idiots are going to come up with. Do it Nancy do it. More votes in 2020 for us.”
The majority of Americans are sick & tired of the Democrat party. Imagine how they are going to react when President Trump wins in 2020. I wonder how many liberals are going to kill themselves over this. They still can’t get over 2016… and they for sure won’t be able to deal with life after 2020.
Keep it up, Democrats. This ain’t going to help you in the end. Your party is going down faster than Bill Clinton’s pants.

Elizabeth Warren Says Use Taxpayer Money To Pay Student Debt – $1.25 TRILLION Cost
If Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is a real economist, I’ll eat my hat. The woman is nothing more than an economically illiterate Marxist. She’s now proposing using taxpayer money to “cancel” hundreds of billions of dollars in student-loan debt and offer debt-free college for millions more, which would cost $1.25 trillion over the next decade.
I’m sure young people will mostly support this move, but ask yourself… where does the money come from to pay off these loans? If you said a wealth tax you get a cookie. She intends to rob the rich to pay off student loans. Economically speaking, that is moronic.
It is successful and rich business owners who provide jobs for everyone else. Your degree won’t mean much if you can’t find work. Margaret Thatcher once said that “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually, you run out of other people’s money.” She was more right than she ever knew.
Warren wrote a blog post on the leftist Medium site where she stated that the “huge student loan debt burden” is “crushing millions of families and acting as an anchor on our economy. It’s reducing homeownership rates. It’s leading fewer people to start businesses. It’s forcing students to drop out of school before getting a degree. It’s a problem for all of us.”
From The Daily Wire, here is some of Warren’s drivel:
“The first step in addressing this crisis is to deal head-on with the outstanding debt that is weighing down millions of families and should never have been required in the first place. That’s why I’m calling for something truly transformational — the cancellation of up to $50,000 in student loan debt for 42 million Americans.
“My plan for broad student debt cancellation will:
“Cancel debt for more than 95% of the nearly 45 million Americans with student loan debt;
“Wipeout student loan debt entirely for more than 75% of the Americans with that debt;
“Substantially increase wealth for Black and Latinx families and reduce both the Black-White and Latinx-White wealth gaps; and
“Provide an enormous middle-class stimulus that will boost economic growth, increase home purchases, and fuel a new wave of small business formation.”
Do I get a refund for having chosen a cheaper public university so I wouldn't be riddled with a ton of debt?
Seriously this is stupid – everyone knows what they're borrowing when they go through the process and I want no part in paying off everyone else's student loans. https://t.co/aAadWHUZ8i

This is money for nothing, chicks for free blather. It would destroy the middle-class and she knows it. You can’t afford to buy a home if all your income is going out in taxes to pay for other people’s education. I worked hard and paid off my loans and I don’t want to pay for others who want a free ride.
“Do I get a refund for having chosen a cheaper public university so I wouldn’t be riddled with a ton of debt?” wrote Josh Jordan. “Seriously this is stupid – everyone knows what they’re borrowing when they go through the process and I want no part in paying off everyone else’s student loans.”
“You better retro that and pay back all of us who diligently paid our loans back in full if you pull this bull—-,” wrote a Twitter user.
“Experts estimate my debt cancellation plan creates a one-time cost to the government of $640 billion. The Universal Free College program brings the total cost of the program to roughly $1.25 trillion over ten years,” Warren wrote. She would print money to cover the cost starting an economic domino effect that will leave us in a Weimer-esque Republic. The sheer idiocy of this proposal stuns me.
But I don't wanna pay for other people's college or their college debts. https://t.co/yvoK9eoU1E

Warren says “the actual costs of these new ideas are likely to be even less than that,” and claims “we can fully cover the cost of these ideas with revenue from my Ultra-Millionaire Tax on the wealthiest 75,000 families in the country — those with fortunes of $50 million or more.” She is insane. Stripping the wealth from Americans like that is a suicide march off a Marxist cliff.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the plan would entail “an annual 2% levy on wealth above $50 million and an additional 1% tax on wealth above $1 billion.” You do know that most of the wealthy would find a way around that theft, right? In the end, it would be the middle-class paying for all this and the burden would crush us.
Under her plan, borrowers with a household income under $100,000 would have $50,000 of their student debt canceled. Borrowers with an income between $150,000 and $250,000 would be eligible for some debt cancellation, though not the full $50,000, and borrowers earning $250,000 or more wouldn’t have any of their debt canceled.
Warren, who is running for president in 2020 and stands no chance of being elected, also proposes using $50 billion in taxpayer funds for historically black colleges and universities, known as HBCUs. She wants to “prohibit public colleges from considering citizenship status” when making admissions decisions. So throw the borders open and educate the world while stealing from Peter to pay Paul. Galt’s Gulch is looking better and better if the leftists come back into power.
In addition, Warren wants to phase out federal money that now goes to for-profit schools. “After an appropriate transition period, ban for-profit colleges from receiving any federal dollars (including military benefits and federal student loans), so they can no longer use taxpayer dollars to enrich themselves while targeting lower-income students, servicemembers, and students of color and leaving them saddled with debt,” she wrote. Instead, she will saddle all of America with debt and ‘news flash!’… we’re already beyond broke. This would also begin to bring all colleges under the purvue of the federal government. Not good.
Student loan debt has more than doubled over the last 10 years to $1.5 trillion, and some economic experts say that it is driving the declining homeownership rates among young adults. Get a job, pay off your debt and stop whining. If you can’t pay it off, don’t take the loans. Go into business for yourself. Start acting more like an entrepreneurial American and less like a European Marxist weenie.
