America’s Debauched Political System
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Former acting DNC chair Donna Brazile offered an insider’s view into the dark side of America’s political system.
It’s too corrupted to fix, rigged to serve powerful interests exclusively, elections farcical when held.
America is a plutocracy, not a democracy, a cesspool of criminality, inequity and injustice, run by sinister dark forces, powerful monied interests, headquartered on Wall Street, choosing who holds top government positions.
Brazile accused Hillary of a conducting a hugely unethical power play to usurp control of the (undemocratic) Democrat party during the primary season – to assure her selection as presidential nominee, rigging things against Sanders.
DNC fund-raising was a “money laundering” scheme for her campaign, shutting out her sole challenger, the race for Dem party presidential nominee over before primaries began.
Though acting DNC chair, Hillary aides treated Brazile like a “patsy” and “slave,” she said, telling all in a forthcoming book, already saying plenty publicly.
Her predecessor, defrocked DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz, ceded party control to Hillary. Outraged by her deplorable shenanigans, Brazile considered having Joe Biden replace her.
She feared for her life after the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich – leaking party emails. WikiLeaks published them.
No Russian hacking occurred. Russiagate is a colossal hoax – invented and spread by the CIA under John Brennan, another example of the deplorable way America operates.
US political shenanigans aren’t unique to undemocratic Dems. Republicans share guilt.
Rule in America is all about serving privileged interests exclusively. Democracy is pure fantasy.
None whatever exists. America’s founders rejected it, pretended otherwise rhetorically. Self-serving figures drafting the constitution resembled a Wall Street crowd – bankers, lawyers, politicians and slave owners among them.
Trump was co-opted by America’s deep state straightaway after entering office, serving as a front man for its interests.
His one redeeming attribute is he’s not Hillary, the most ruthlessly dangerous presidential aspirant in US history.
If she won last November and he lost, we might all be dead now. Her viciousness is too extreme to hide – no matter how hard media scoundrels try, operating as her press agent throughout last year’s campaign.
In response to Brazile’s accusations, an insider knowing firsthand what went on, Hillary’s campaign team issued the following statement:
“We were shocked to learn the news that Donna Brazile actively considered overturning the will of the Democratic voters by attempting to replace Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees.”
“It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent…”
Hillary “more than any of us, persevered through an incredibly difficult campaign and her commitment and stamina inspired us every day. We are very proud of the effort she and the campaign made in both the primary and the general election.”
“(W)e are pretty tired of people who were not part of our campaign telling the world what it was like to be on the inside of our campaign and how we felt about it.”
“We loved our candidate and each other and it remains our honor to have been part of the effort to make Hillary Clinton the 45th President of the United States.”
It’s hard even quoting this rubbish. It speaks for itself. Anyone doing minimal due diligence on Hillary knows the dark side of her character – an unindicted war criminal, racketeer, perjurer, belonging in prison.
Hillary and Trump were the most widely reviled presidential aspirants in US history. The majority “will” of the people rejected them both.
Scoundrel media “propaganda” proliferates daily. Russian media RT and Sputnik have higher standards.
Private citizen Hillary keeps spreading Big Lies. In or out of office, she’s despicable.
