Hillary Backers are Hijacking Democratic Party Organizations Again

Despite her denials, Hillary Clinton is likely to run for President in 2020. At the least she's testing the waters:

Anonymous Democrats are working to get her nominated. That is their choice, except that toward that goal they are commandeering Democratic bodies that claim neutrality, just as Hillary backers hijacked the supposedly neutral Democratic National Committee prior to the 2016 campaign.

The National Democratic Training Committee's stated purpose is to encourage and train new Democratic candidates. Supposedly they do not choose or favor particular candidates. So they say. Since they solicit contributions on those understandings, they have no business actively campaigning for Hillary Clinton, who's been running for office since 2000, lost the 2016 presidential election and lost in a try for the nomination in 2008.

And yet the NDTC circulated a Hillary Clinton 2020 campaign ad masquerading as a poll. Below the question, "Should Hillary run for President in 2020," are Yes and No buttons. The rest of the message includes the following.

"We're still reeling from the 2016 Presidential Election. Even though Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by almost three million votes -- Donald Trump won because of Russian interference. We don't think that's fair. What if Hillary had another shot? We need a strong progressive candidate to take on Trump in 2020. And we think Hillary Clinton could be the one!

"That's why we're reaching out to our strongest Democratic supporters to get their opinion. You've been chosen to represent ***** (zipcode) ! Take our poll immediately."

To blame the loss solely on the Russians and the effects of gerrymandering on the Electoral College is to ignore Hillary's badly run campaign and her many weaknesses in the eyes of independent voters and quite a few Democrats. In 2016 Trump began as a candidate with little appeal outside the Republican base. Nonetheless, he beat Hillary. In 2020 Trump will be the incumbent, and Hillary will be old news. Forget "I'm with her," the motto of many voters will be "I'm sick and tired of her."

The NDTC, a young and little-known Democratic organization that is "reaching out to our strongest Democratic supporters", must be cooperating with the DNC. Among the parties who received the ad were several who had never heard of the NDTC, but were on the Party's mailing list. The connection between the DNC and the NDTC goes back to the latter's founding in 2016.

I sent a message to the NDTC asking if the ad had their knowing support. Three weeks later they have not answered. Their silence speaks volumes.

If you donate to The National Democratic Training Committee, thinking your money goes only toward helping new candidates, please protest their misrepresenting themselves, and then stop donating. Whatever assistance the Committee actually provides to new faces, it is a stalking horse for Hillary, and nominating Hillary again is the surest way to re-elect Trump.

Guilty! I believed she would not.

Right now the best way Russians and other foreign actors could gum up 2020, if they exist--and I believe they do--would be to support this effort every way they can. It could very well be that the Internet Research Agency is pumping out propaganda about how the evil Russians made her lose.

And anyway, if she lost solely due to Russian interference and gerrymandering, what does she propose to do about it in the next two years? If she succeeded in getting the nomination again, the silver lining would be that she would lose to Trump again and the Democratic Party would implode sooner than later.

I haven't donated a cent to any Democratic candidate since 2016.

Given widespread weariness with her, she's almost certain to fail one on one against another viable candidate. Her best bet would be to divide the opposition, use her intact organization to encourage many opponents to run, and line up superdelegates. Under new rules they don't vote in the first round, but do thereafter.


Campaign slogan: something like Let's Get It Right this Time. She'd lose in the election unless the country were in recession or a disastrous war by then.


That's all speculation, but I'll write it up in detail as a warning.

He should be careful that he doesn't get locked up or worse.

He could start by firing most of his secretaries of federal agencies and bringing in some people with sense to send a clear message to the globalists that he intends to f**k with them.

The way he is acting now, is as a punk ass mofo. If he would come out and say publicly that he wants the american people's support to stop wars by the pentagon, and that he is thinking about asking Congress to rescind billions in pentagon allocation, he would have the support that we and the rest of the peace loving world give him. If he would say that he is going to be friends with Russia, China, and Iran but he needs the support of the american people to revolt once the elites use proxies of the deep state to whack him if not physically, financially, we would revolt.

As it stands he wants it several ways.

While throwing sand into the financial gears of the globalist elites, his military acquiescence confirms him as a punk ass fraud more interested in keeping his millions. Had he not contributed to the unmasking of fake democrats, liberals, media and gone along the the global elites program he would still be alive because he is going to pay for having disrupted the globalists hegemony. So he is a dead man walking but maybe he will step up like a real "man" do something good for humanity before he is done.

A good outcome for the life of the world is that he will slow down the globalists while we zero in on taking the wheels off their runaway american government wagon...to slow it down before it rolls completely out of our control.

By the way there has got be some in yo face pitch forks on standby for their globalist avatars or the elites will think it is business as usual, all TALK...oops! We were reading about Hillary weren't we? Seriously folks? Haven't the Clintons stolen enough?

Trump would do himself and the country best if he would do as JFK did and ban Henry Kissinger from the White House, and then get rid of the likes of Jon Bolton. He could then get back on track of providing the speed bump for the globalists and actually joining Putin in that agenda.

I a tually think HRC wouldve .ade a pretty good presidnet despite believing her and Obama and most other dems dont bargain for enough om the issues and are as behden to the corporate world as republicans she might have been aw to move the ball forward The flip side is it would be ateast a sbad with hee in office as it was with Obama.be thwarted at every step. But i stillcant beleic Ve.she put herself out there with all the baggage. This was a terrible and predeter.ined decision of democratic Prty officials. Holey the new crop will undermine the corporate democrats ans replace them with wproblem solvers decotes to A.erican people. But I doubt it. Money is still the timate power.

If they are stupid enough to run Hillary again, the electoral result will be the same and Trump will get a second term of office.

Great comment, George King - laughed at 'Joe Ukraine Biden'. The problem is, if I sent this comment off to my Dem friends, not one would have a clue what this was about.

Yesterday a sister worried about the 'Russian influence' in possibly hacking the election results.....still!! Of course, she's all CNN and can't wean her off since any other news source is 'fake'. I've tried to set her and others straight on issues - but I'm not sitting in an anchor chair. I've sent the articles and interviews with Professor Stephen Cohen on the true nature of the Ukrainan conflict - response:..."ehh".

My ultimate joker card: LOOK at the Senate voitng records. Of the nefarious legislation which is passed, eighty Senators vote alike, with around twenty who vote 'nay'. Often the two Democratic senators from Oregon vote nay and I did see one vote with Elizabeth Warren and Ted Cruz joining the nays. Strange to some, but not really: they need to be seen throw crumbs to their consituents from time to time. In the case of Warren, she reminds people of her progressive stripes and Cruz pleases his anti-government intrusion folks.

The right and left aleady work well together in Congress for the 1%. The subject of Ralph Nader's 2014 book, Unstoppable, outlines: 'The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State".

We can only hope the continuing disfunction in government finally prompts the citizenry into realizing this is what needs to be done.

Helen, unfortunately being able to see through this, "they need to be seen throwing crumbs to their constituents from time to time" is part of the manufacturing of consent to remain in power and do the bidding of not the constituents but the real owners as George Carlin said. Elections,

As George Carlin says in the video below, the elites that run this country own you. You should not think of the owners as a small, monolithic group of people who run this country day-to-day. Rather, they are a diverse group of extremely powerful people in various industries (defense, banking, pharmaceuticals, etc.) or in the government (the Treasury, the Fed) who ultimately make all the important policy decisions in America. The owners have the corrupt politicians in their pockets. These policy decisions always enrich the owners at your expense. You are merely property to these people. Carlin is a little more blunt: they don't give a f*ck about you. At all.

So much for hope and change (manufacturing consent = America's Elites Own You

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free
--Goethe

When I heard that Barack Obama had named William M. Daley to be his chief of staff, I was reminded once again that the owners of this country, the elites that have run it into the ground while enriching themselves, aren't going anywhere. They're still here, still running the show, still doing damage.
