DNC Chairwoman Resignation Not Good Enough
by Stephen Lendman
Double standard US justice throws the book at ordinary Americans for infractions too minor to matter. Harsh gulag imprisonment awaits them.
Government, business and other privileged individuals are more fortunate – accountability not demanded, their lawbreaking when occurring ignored.
Most often they’re rewarded. Wall Street and other corporate crooks get bonuses and promotions. Crooked politicians get top government posts. Military criminals get medals, generals more stars.
DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was caught red-handed, rigging the electoral process for Clinton, assuring she’ll be party standard bearer in November.
She’s stepping down after this week’s party convention, continuing to represent Florida’s 23rd district – facing no criminal charges, despite committing a serious racketeering offense.
The Clinton campaign announced she’ll remain honorary chair to help elect Democrats in November. She’ll likely receive other rewards for faithful service to a corrupted system, a mockery of democratic fairness.
An RNC tweet said Schultz “out after rigged system exposed.” Democrat convention “off to a good start.”
Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort issued a statement, saying “Clinton should follow Wasserman Schultz’s lead and drop out over her failure to safeguard top secret classified information both on her unauthorized home server and while traveling abroad.”
Obama praised Schultz, saying “(f)or the last eight years, (she) has had my back. This afternoon (Sunday) I called her to let her know that I am grateful.”
Bernie Sanders shockingly said Schultz “deserves thanks for her years of service,” while saying she “made the right decision for the future of the Democratic (sic) party.”
Hillary Clinton issued a statement, “thank(ing) my longtime friend Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her leadership…over the past five years.”
She’ll stay on “as honorary chair…to serve as a surrogate for my campaign nationally…I will need fighters like Debbie in Congress who are ready…to work for the American people” – a deplorable perversion of truth.
All politicians are self-serving, Clinton in a class of her own – the most recklessly dangerous choice to lead America in its entire history.
Critics called Schultz’s leadership controversial, claiming she “spends more energy tending to her own political ambitions than helping Democrats win,” according to Politico.
Trump tweeted “(t)oday proves what I have always known, that (RNC chairman) @Reince Priebus is the tough one and the smart one, not Debbie Wasserman Shultz…The Dems Convention is cracking up…”
A change.org petition collected almost 65,000 signatures calling for Schultz’s resignation before she stepped down, expressing “the utmost sense of contempt and disdain for the Democratic (sic) party, its principles, and the democratic process.”
The Institute for American Democracy and Election Integrity filed a racketeering lawsuit against the DNC. It’s seeking funds to cover expenses.
Electoral fraud in America is longstanding, the process notoriously corrupt – no one in high places held accountable for crimes too serious to ignore.
Are things rigged for Clinton to succeed Obama? Will a war goddess/racketeer be handed the nation’s highest office? Will WW III follow?
