WikiLeaks has done America a great favor lancing the puss filled boil that is the Democrat Party

The joke of trying to smear Bernie as a Jew. There is nothing Jewish about him other then he speaks like a 1950's seltzer deliveryman. Communist's religion is the State, no G-d required.

To me of the most destructive element is the corruption of the media. When a political party gets to vet a journalists copy before even his editor, you're living in a totalitarian state.

'No homo!' How DNC staffers under Wasserman Schultz used anti-gay slurs, mocked the name of an African-American assistant and created a sexist Craigslist job posting to humiliate Donald Trump

  • Thousands of private emails from the Democratic National Committee were published on WikiLeaks over the weekend
  • Among the 20,000 emails, staffers ridiculed each other, made homophobic remarks and took favors from superdelegates
  • The emails also appear to expose favoritism for presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over Senator Bernie Sanders
  • In one email, DNC staffer Luis Miranda approves a fake advertisement looking for 'hot' women who want to work for the Trump Organization
  • In another, DNC Finance Director Jordan Kaplan trades favors with a superdelegate who's trying to get an acquaintance's daughter a job
  • Kaplan goes on to make homophobic remarks in another email
  • An administrative assistant at Haddad Brands, named LaQueenia Gibson, was mocked in an email because of her name
  • An email shows DNC staffers making fun of a FOX News freelance reporter Fred Lucas
  • Since the leak, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has resigned and protesters have flocked to the Democratic National Convention 
Among the most damning of the 20,000 emails, staffers make fun of a black woman's name, create a fake Craigslist ad for women interested in working for Donald Trump, and trade favors with superdelegates.
The emails also appear to expose favoritism for presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over her chief rival in the primary contest, Senator Bernie Sanders.
Since the leak, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned and protesters have flocked to the Democratic National Convention in protest.
The Democratic National Committee - which saw Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (pictured) resign on Sunday - saw 20,000 of their private emails published on WikiLeaks over the weekend
In one email, staffers discuss a fake Craigslist advertisement that calls for women who want to work for the Trump Organization.
The email begins: 'Digital created a fake craigslist jobs post for women who want to apply to jobs [at] one of Trump's organizations.'
The job description reads: 'Multiple Positions (NYC area) Seeking staff members for multiple positions in a large, New York-based corporation known for its real estate investments, fake universities, steaks, and wine.
'The boss has very strict standards for female employees, ranging from the women who take lunch orders (must be hot) to the women who oversee multi-million dollar construction projects (must maintain hotness demonstrated at time of hiring).
'Title: Honey Bunch (that's what the boss will call you). Job requirements: No gaining weight on the job (we'll take some "before" pictures when you start to use later as evidence).
'Must be open to public humiliation and open-press workouts if you do gain weight on the job. A willingness to evaluate other women's hotness for the boss' satisfaction is a plus.
'Should be proficient in lying about age if the boss thinks you're too old. Working mothers not preferred (the boss finds pumping breast milk disgusting, and worries they're too focused on their children).
'About us: We're proud to maintain a "fun" and "friendly" work environment, where the boss is always available to meet with his employees.
'Like it or not, he may greet you with a kiss on the lips or grope you under the meeting table. Interested applicants should send resume, cover letter, and headshot to 
Luis Miranda, Communications Director for the DNC, responded to the email after being asked for approval on the fake advertisement. 
'As long as all the offensive s**t is verbatim I’m fine with it,' he wrote in an email.
In another email thread, DNC staffer Scott Comer and a consulting group employee joke about an administrative assistant at Haddad Brands, named LaQueenia Gibson.

'I'm going to have LaQueenia send out some options for next week,' an executive from Haddad wrote to DNC staffers. 'Hopefully we can all get on the phone and reenergize this event.' 
Comer forwarded the email to an employee at Tipah Consulting with the comment: 'Just kill me now.'
The consulting group employee responded: 'LaQueenia is a NAME! I'm sorry, boo. I hope you got a raise with this title.'
DNC National Finance Director Jordan Kaplan can be seen apparently trading favors with a superdelegate in one email
Some emails focus on Clinton, issues with her campaign and her own personal emails.
In one email, a staffer called accusations about Hillary being accused of laundering money a 's**t topic' brought on by a 'Bernie Bro'.
'I turned him down flat (and politely) and inquired into opportunities next week to talk about something else,' Pablo Manriquez, the former media booker for the DNC responded to Miranda.
Manriquez, who is no longer on the DNC staff, is told in more than one email to 'f**k off' when responding to messages.
In another leaked email, Clinton's own emails are shared and edited, so they can be approved before they're sent out.
In the message, titled 'For approval: Hillary Clinton emails', DNC staffers say the Hillary Victory Fund and Clinton herself had signed off on the messages, but they needed a final approval.
DNC's research associate Jeremy Brinster openly said in a separate email from April, 'Yes, Super PAC paying young voters to push back online on Sanders supporters', suggesting that the committee was showing favoritism toward Clinton. 
The committee, too, appeared to try to expose Bernie Sanders as an Atheist in an attempt to attack his religious views.
'It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief,' an email from DNC CFO Brad Marshall reads. 'Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage.
'I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.'

Luis Miranda, Communications Director for the DNC, approved fake Craigslist ads about Donald Trump in one email
Several emails that were leaked discuss the Democratic Party's relationship with various media sites.
In one, DNC staffers are seen conspiring to create false Trump information and release it to Reuters.
'I'm not totally opposed to the idea but it would have to be somewhat controlled. We could set up a 'demo' where we pretend that Trump just said a really offensive thing and then the process of clipping video and getting a release out the door…' DNC Deputy Communications Director Eric Walker says in an email thread.
In another, staffers discuss meeting with MSNBC to discuss how to have the Democratic Party better represented on shows.
Deeper into the leaked emails, the threads get stranger as DNC staffers assess personal issues and interactions with reporters.

After Fred Lucas, a freelance reporter working for Fox News reached out for an interview, several staffers made fun of him among themselves.
One staffer asked his colleagues if there was a 'f**k you' emoji, before another staffer decided the organization was 'not responding at all'.
When Lucas reached out to the DNC again, staffers again laughed at his determination.
'The a*****e from fox emailed us again,' DNC Press Assistant Rachel Palermo wrote to several others. 'I did some research and there's still no "f**k you" emoji, unfortunately.'
In another email, DNC National Finance Director Jordan Kaplan can be seen apparently trading favors with superdelegate Lucy Moog to get an acquaintance's daughter a job in politics. 
A superdelegate reached out to Kaplan asking if he or someone from his staff could 'meet with an awesome young person about to graduate from Duke'.
'She is dying to get into the political world. Worked for Ready for Hillary in NYC couple of summers ago. Smart and savvy. Wants to do the DC post college political thing starting in June. Please?' the superdelegate writes.
In one email, DNC staffers create a fake advertisement looking for 'hot' women who want to work for the Trump Organization
In another email, DNC staffers suggested exposing Bernie Sanders as an Atheist in an attempt to attack his religious views
Kaplan responds by trying to make a deal with the superdelegate.
'Ill make you a deal - now that you are a super delegate and all!' he writes. 'Happy to meet with her, but can I get a pass to the EBC for Thursday morning?'
In a later email to the woman he says: 'I will do it and if i cannot have, someone else step in. I'm not that busy. SHHHH.'
Kaplan had several questionable emails in leaked in the WikiLeaks drop, including one where he used a homophobic remark toward another staffer.
'Are we back to the point I can say I love you? Because I'd like to,' DNC staffer Zachary Allen writes to Kaplan.
Kaplan responds: 'I love you too. No homo.'
In another, Kaplan and a DNC staffer discuss a man's sexuality, where Kaplan says the man 'is definitely gay. He swims for the gay and lesbian team in DC.'
'Totes. He gives me daddy vibes,' DNC's Scott Comer responds.
Overall, the DNC staffers appear to be comfortable discussing other people's personal histories and saying offensive remarks to one another.
In an email titled 'Tiny suggestion', staffer Karina Marquez tells Comer: 'Eat my butt'.
In another, staffers discuss buying a gift basket for a former staffer and decide that the smaller it is, the better.
'He didn't work with us that long,' Kaplan says, suggesting a gift basket below $50.
Comer responds: 'Maybe even less than that since he's so skinny.'
In one email, a group of staffers discuss vetting DNC donor George Lindemann, Jr, when his father, George LIndemann is mentioned because he killed horses for insurance fraud.

While vetting DNC donor George Lindemann, Jr (left), staffers bring up his father, George Lindemann (right) who at one time killed horses for insurance fraud
The email says: 'George Lindemann - convicted of three counts of wire fraud in 1995 and received a 33-month term in federal prison; Investigation stemmed from a federal investigation where over 50 horses were killed in a 20 year period in acts of insurance fraud; nothing new as of 5/9/16.'
Since the leak, the FBI has confirmed that it is 'investigating a cyber intrusion involving the DNC', adding that 'a compromise of this nature is something we take very seriously.'
Clinton's campaign pointed to a massive hacking of DNC computers in June that cybersecurity firms linked to the Russian government.
But it wasn't immediately clear how WikiLeaks received copies of the internal Democratic emails.
Democratic Party officials learned in late April that their systems had been attacked after they discovered malicious software on their computers. 
A cybersecurity firm they employed found traces of at least two sophisticated hacking groups on the Democrats' network - both of which have ties to the Russian government. 
Those hackers took at least one year's worth of detailed chats, emails and research on Donald Trump, according to a person knowledgeable of the breach who wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the matter.
Clinton's campaign stood firmly behind their claims of Russian involvement Monday.

'There is a consensus among experts that it is indeed Russia that is behind this hack of the DNC,' Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon told CNN.
On Sunday, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said that it was 'concerning last week that Donald Trump changed the Republican platform to become what some experts would regard as pro-Russian.'
Trump's senior policy adviser Paul Manafort called statements by the Clinton campaign 'pretty desperate.'
'It's a far reach, obviously,' Manafort told reporters. 'To lead their convention with that tells me they really are trying to move away from what the issues are going to be in this campaign. It's pretty absurd.'

Bernie Sanders king of the self loathing Jews. He fits right in the Jew hating Democrat Party

Bernie Sanders Invites Spain's Anti-Semitic, Anti-Israel Party Leader toDemocratic Convention

Because of the tumult over the WikiLeaks revelations showing how the DNC worked to undermine Bernie Sanders’ candidacy in the Democratic primaries, few people have noticed the controversial guest that Sanders has invited to the Democrats’ convention.
Spanish newspaper ABC reported on July 22 that Paul Bustinduy, secretary of international relations of Spain's far-left, anti-Semitic party Podemos, is Bernie's guest.
Although Podemos came in third place in the June 26 Spanish national election, it is a political force to be reckoned with in Spain. Podemos had joined an alliance with other mostly leftist groups in a coalition called United We Can -- this was the name Podemos ran under. The alliance included the United Left, whose main component is members of the old Spanish Communist Party, which on its own has little support in Spain.
Composed of old Communists, Trotskyists, independent revolutionaries, Basque and Catalan nationalists, leftist urban intellectuals, and former supporters of the Socialist Party annoyed at what they perceive as its continuing compromises, United We Can models itself on the Marxist Greek party Syriza. Syria brought the Greek economy to near total collapse.

To call Podemos blatantly anti-Semitic would not be a false accusation.
In Madrid, the party’s a
ffiliate is called Ahora Madrid. The head of Madrid’s
department of culture, Guillermo Zapata, who is a member, tweeted:
“ ‘How do you
fit five million Jews in a SEAT 600 [a car]?’ Answer: ‘In an
In 2012, he tweeted that Israel is “genocidal posing as an advanced democracy,” and resembles Assad’s regime in Syria.
Not surprisingly, United Left and Podemos support the international BDS campaign. They also supported the anti-Israel flotillas that attempted to sail to Gaza in support of Hamas in its war against Israel. They support virtually all measures the anti-Israel European left has proposed.
Podemos is so anti-Israel that it defends a notorious anti-Semitic Spanish magazine, El Jueves.
An English independent socialist internet magazine, Shiraz Socialist, recently ran an article about El Jueves written by Yves Coleman, appropriately titled: “Spanish radical left tolerates anti-Semitism.”

Yves Coleman writes:
Following the publication of anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic cartoons in El Jueves on 10 February 2016, Pablo Iglesias (general secretary of Podemos) and David Fernandez, former member of the CUP in the Catalan Parliament, have, along with other personalities of the "political and cultural world," signed a petition protesting against any possible complaint which could be filed against the anti-Semitic drawings published by El Jueves.
The magazine, Coleman notes:
... likes to play with the stereotypes of the Jew as a schemer, swindler and liar.
They regularly run cartoons of Jews wearing:
... either payots, long beards, a wide-brimmed hat and a black coat or an IDF military uniform.
One such cartoon, from another Spanish left-wing anti-Semitic group, depicts the “Stay out of Spain, Obama” protest. It shows Obama taking money from the Jews. In the Spanish left, Obama is viewed as an imperialist warmonger.
In another issue, they published the cartoon below about Israel, using the symbols of Hitler’s SS to indicate that Israel is composed of Nazis.

Although Spain is a nation in which few Jews live, it is also the European country in which anti-Semitic views are most widespread. Unfortunately, the magazine’s writers and editors, like Podemos, hold the same anti-Semitic views that exist among the French left, and especially exist in Jeremy Corbyn’s British Labor Party.
To be a leftist in Spain, France or Britain means that you support anti-Semites, condemn Israel, and feel comfortable comparing it as a nation to the Nazis.
While here, Mr. Bustinduy plans to meet with activists in the Latino community, trade unionists, and leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement -- which itself is anti-Israel.
A day before the convention, on July 24, he will participate in a left-wing conference at the University of Pennsylvania called Democracy Rising.
His main purpose, however, is to give his support to Bernie Sanders’ efforts to force the Democratic Party to move much further to the left. Undoubtedly, Bustinduy will complain about the Sanders group's one big failure: to put an anti- Israel position into the Democratic Party platform.
With most of the media concentrating on reaction to the WikiLeaks release, the invitation to Podemos will most likely go unnoticed. Is there anyone in the mainstream media who will ask Sanders why he offered this invitation to a leader of a Spanish anti-Semitic, anti-Israel political party?

Why Are the Voters Angry?

A great piece by Myron Magnet, though I do take objection with the title. Most voters care nothing about limiited constitutional government, as long as they continue to get stuff. But the scheme to make the government and bureacracy more entrenched and powerful, ratchet by ratchet, will eventually suck all the growth and money out of the economy toward the government until the whole thing explodes (see Greece, Venezuela, etc... for recent examples).

Haunting this year’s presidential contest is the sense that the U.S. government no longer belongs to the people and no longer represents them. And this uneasy feeling is not misplaced. It reflects the real state of affairs.
We have lost the government we learned about in civics class, with its democratic election of representatives to do the voters’ will in framing laws, which the president vows to execute faithfully, unless the Supreme Court rules them unconstitutional. That small government of limited powers that the Founders designed, hedged with checks and balances, hasn’t operated for a century. All its parts still have their old names and appear to be carrying out their old functions. But in fact, a new kind of government has grown up inside the old structure, like those parasites hatched in another organism that grow by eating up their host from within, until the adult creature bursts out of the host’s carcass. This transformation is not an evolution but a usurpation.
What has now largely displaced the Founders’ government is what’s called the Administrative State—a transformation premeditated by its main architect, Woodrow Wilson. The thin-skinned, self-righteous college-professor president, who thought himself enlightened far beyond the citizenry, dismissed the Declaration of Independence’s inalienable rights as so much outmoded “nonsense,” and he rejected the Founders’ clunky constitutional machinery as obsolete. (See “It’s Not Your Founding Fathers’ Republic Any More,” Summer 2014.) What a modern country needed, he said, was a “living constitution” that would keep pace with the fast-changing times by continual, Darwinian adaptation, as he called it, effected by federal courts acting as a permanent constitutional convention.
Modernity, Wilson thought, demanded efficient government by independent, nonpartisan, benevolent, hyper-educated experts, applying the latest scientific, economic, and sociological knowledge to industrial capitalism’s unprecedented problems, too complex for self-governing free citizens to solve. Accordingly, he got Congress to create executive-branch administrative agencies, such as the Federal Trade Commission, to do the job. During the Great Depression, President Franklin Roosevelt proliferated such agencies, from the National Labor Relations Board and the Federal Housing Administration to the Federal Communications Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission, to put the New Deal into effect. Before they could do so, though, FDR had to scare the Supreme Court into stretching the Constitution’s Commerce Clause beyond recognition, putting the federal government in charge of all economic activity, not just interstate transactions. He also had to pressure the justices to allow Congress to delegate legislative power—which is, in effect, what the lawmakers did by setting up agencies with the power to make binding rules. The Constitution, of course, vests all legislative power in Congress, empowering it to make laws, not to make legislators.
But the Administrative State’s constitutional transgressions cut deeper still. If Congress can’t delegate its legislative powers, it certainly can’t delegate judicial powers, which the Constitution gives exclusively to the judiciary. Nevertheless, after these administrative agencies make rules like a legislature, they then exercise judicial authority like a court by prosecuting violations of their edicts and inflicting real criminal penalties, such as fines and cease-and-desist orders. As they perform all these functions, they also violate the principle of the separation of powers, which lies at the heart of our constitutional theory (senselessly curbing efficiency, Wilson thought), as well as the due process of law, for they trample the citizen’s Fifth Amendment right not to lose his property unless indicted by a grand jury and tried by a jury of his peers, and they search a citizen or a company’s private papers or premises, without bothering to get judge-issued subpoenas or search warrants based on probable cause, flouting the Fourth Amendment. They can issue waivers to their rules, so that the law is not the same for all citizens and companies but is instead an instrument of arbitrary power. FDR himself ruefully remarked that he had expanded a fourth branch of government that lacked constitutional legitimacy. Not only does it reincarnate the arbitrary power of the Stuarts’ tyrannical Star Chamber, but also it doesn’t even meet the minimal conditions of liberty that Magna Carta set forth 801 years ago.
Adding insult to injury, Wilson, his allies, and their current followers call themselves “progressives,” a fatuous boast implying that they are the embodiments and chosen instruments of the spirit of an ever-improving, irresistible future. In tune with the German idealist philosophy that Wilson and his circle studied, they claim to be marching toward an as-yet-unrealized goal of human perfection. But that perfection, the German philosophers believed, would look something like Prussia’s enlightened despotism. For Americans to think that it is progress to move from the Founders’ revolutionary achievement—a nation of free citizens, endowed with natural rights, living under laws that they themselves have made, pursuing their own vision of happiness in their own way and free to develop as fully as they can whatever talent or genius lies within them—to a regime in which individuals derive such rights as they have from a government superior to them is contemptible. How is a return to subjection an advance on freedom? No lover of liberty should ever call such left-wing statism “progressive.” In historical terms, this elevation of state power over individual freedom is not even “liberal” but quite the reverse.

New York Gov. Cuomo accused of violating Hatch Act after state ads run in North Carolina. Another instance of Democrat ignoring the law.

New York Gov. Cuomo accused of violating Hatch Act after state ads run in North Carolina

Published July 25, 2016
New York’s advertising campaigns promoting the state’s economic-development opportunities have faced criticism for their high costs and meager returns in job creation. Now they have encountered another challenge.
A former North Carolina Supreme Court judge has filed complaints with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel and a New York state ethics panel alleging that taxpayer-funded ads Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration has run in North Carolina violated the Hatch Act by interfering with the gubernatorial and legislative races in that state.
The commercials, which reference the state’s so-called transgender bathroom law, among policies by other states, “mention North Carolina and its leadership in a transparent attempt to criticize, interfere and affect the impending North Carolina elections,” according to the federal complaint filed by the retired judge, Robert F. Orr.
The Republican governor of North Carolina, Pat McCrory, is up for re-election this year, as is the state’s legislature. The Hatch Act prohibits federal, state and local employees from using their official authority to interfere with or influence the outcome of an election or nomination for office.
A spokesman for Mr. Cuomo, John P.L. Kelly, described the complaints as “frivolous” but didn’t address the allegation concerning any attempt to sway North Carolina’s elections.
“It would be funny if the issues we were actually talking about did not involve human rights and basic equality,” Mr. Kelly said. “New York welcomes everyone—everyone—who seeks to embrace freedom while pursuing their dreams.”
Mr. Orr, who said in an interview that he isn’t affiliated with the North Carolina governor’s administration or campaign but has done some legal work for the state, has filed a similar complaint with New York’s Joint Commission on Public Ethics.
The ads, which the complaints say began running in North Carolina in late June, promote New York’s business climate as “where the true leaders are” and “where we understand the value of diversity.” The ads are no longer airing, according to Mr. Cuomo’s office.
The federal complaint criticizes the ads as going “beyond appropriate economic-development recruitment,” saying: “By using public funds to promote New York as supporting certain policies and implicitly criticizing contrary political decisions made in North Carolina, an ethical imitation has been breached.”
The complaint specifically identifies Mr. Cuomo as having violated the Hatch Act, along with several employees of Empire State Development, New York’s economic-development agency.
