O.M.G.

The Dimocrats have earned that moniker, IMO. They cannot win this. It is a huge distraction. It is one more way to rationalize $hillary’s loss and blame anyone but her. It is trying to hang on to their losing ways – moving ever rightward and taking ever more corporate cash.

No. Just. No.

The hardcore $Hillary dems just wont let her losing go. They wont face the following
1. People didnt trust her as she was to close to wall street
2. Voter apathey as both canidates were below 45% approval
3. Basically ignored the midwest and took those voters for granted if she put the time in Wi and Mi she probably carries and wins.
4. The Deplorables comment was the nail in the coffin
5. A poorly run campagin and too much time with rich donors vs the average American. I’m sure we could list plenty more reasons.

The woe is me continues for her and her supporters she has no one to blame but herself for nor winning.

And a couple Quotes from her latest book “Clinton campaign, Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling”

“And the last was reserved for Trump’s “deplorables,” which Chozick said included those with bigoted views.Still, Clinton knew she’d made a mistake when she referred to the latter group at a New York fundraiser, just a couple of months before the November elections. Chozick said Clinton told her aides afterward: “‘I really messed up.'”
A week earlier, she’d cut off Joel [Benenson] and the pollster John Anzalone, as they walked her through the almost daily reminder that half the country disliked her,” Chozick wrote, according to the Daily Beast, noting that the conversation had happened around the time of the Republican National Convention. “‘You know, I am getting pretty tired of hearing about how nobody likes me,’ she said.”
According to Chozick, Clinton went on to wonder: “‘Oh, what’s the point? They’re never going to like me.'”

“Of all the Brooklyn aides, Jen Palmieri had the most pleasant bedside manner,” Chozick writes. “That made her the designated deliverer of bad news to Hillary. But not this time. She told Robby there was no way she was going to tell Hillary she couldn’t win. That’s when Robby, drained and deflated, watching the results with his team in a room down the hall from Hillary’s suite, labored into the hallway of the Peninsula to break the news. Hillary didn’t seem all that surprised. ‘I knew it. I knew this would happen to me….’ Hillary said, now within a couple of inches of his face. ‘They were never going to let me be president.’

Maybe the DNC is hoping they could win this lawsuit, so they can recoup all the money that HRC took.

I’m actually fine with the suit with a major caveat. As I said in the thread below:

“I think the purpose of the suit is to put pressure on the Republicans for the 2018 elections, alleging that they conspired with a foreign government to use stolen information to affect our 2016 elections. I have no problem with that as long as the Dems don’t stop there and lose sight of the fact that they also have to get behind policies voters want. The Clinton crowd is wrong. The 2016 debacle wasn’t only about Russia Russia Russia—Clinton also sucked as a candidate. The DNC definitely has a right to bring suit based on the stolen hacked emails. After the Watergate break-in, it sued the Republicans and won.”

I strongly disagree that the Dems are “garbage conspiracy mongering.” I firmly believe that the Republicans did conspire to hurt the Dems. The Dems don’t care so much about the outcome of the suit—just that Republican bad actions stay in the news. Republicans know how to play this political game and look where they are today.

The lawsuit echoes a similar legal tactic that the Democratic Party used during the Watergate scandal. In 1972, the DNC filed suit against then-President Richard Nixon’s reelection committee seeking $1 million in damages for the break-in at Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building.

The suit was denounced at the time by Nixon’s attorney general, John Mitchell, who called it a case of “sheer demagoguery” by the DNC. But the civil action brought by the DNC’s then-chairman, Lawrence F. O’Brien, was ultimately successful, yielding a $750,000 settlement from the Nixon campaign that was reached on the day in 1974 that Nixon left office.

Speaking of 1972, this song was #12 for the year. I still know all the lyrics by heart

jcitybone

Another favorite from that year #3

If you are interested, #1 was Roberta Flack’s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and #2 was “Alone Again (Naturally) by Gilbert O’Sullivan whose real first name was Raymond but his manager suggested the name change to mimic Gilbert & Sullivan, the operetta composers.

Speaking of 72 Anyone remember this one

President Donald Trump’s campaign Friday blasted as a “sham” a lawsuit by the Democratic National Committee which claims the campaign conspired with Russia and Wikileaks to attack Hillary Clinton and help get Trump elected by releasing hacked computer files.

The campaign called the suit a “frivolous,” “partisan” and meritless action that represents a “last-ditch effort” by a “nearly-bankrupt Democratic Party” still trying to counter the will of the American public.

The campaign also predicted that the DNC’s suit, filed in Manhattan federal court, will be dismissed “in due time.”

But the campaign also warned that if the lawsuit is allowed to proceed by a judge, the campaign will use the legal discovery process to “explore the DNC’s now-secret records about the actual corruption they perpetrated to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.”

The Trump campaign says everything will be on the table, including: “How the DNC conspired to hand Hillary Clinton the nomination over Bernie Sanders”

Fun Times!

Clinton clones are scaryyyy

Not endorsing Cynthia Nixon (yet) but backing his aide who rejected the comparison of Cuomo with Bernie. It’s a ridiculous comparison, but the fact that they’re trying to make it shows where Bernie stands today.

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, vowing to play an influential role in the 2018 midterm elections, was blunt on Friday about the stakes for the Democratic Party.

“If Democrats control either the House or the Senate, Trump’s agenda is dead,” Mr. Sanders said during a conversation with New York Times reporters and editors.

At this critical moment ahead of hundreds of House and Senate primaries, Mr. Sanders also argued that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and other national party organizations are not doing enough to support liberal grass-roots candidates who are running against Mr. Trump and backing a progressive agenda.

“The establishment Democrats are still, I think, looking toward candidates who can self-fund,” said Mr. Sanders, a progressive independent who had enormous success raising about $230 million in mostly small-dollar and online donations during his 2016 presidential bid.

National Democrats “still have a tendency to believe that more conservative candidates are better positioned to win,” he added. Mr. Sanders argued that ideas like “Medicare for All” and a higher minimum wage, which he championed in 2016, are increasingly popular and helpful to Democratic candidates.

Mr. Sanders said he plans to make endorsements in the midterms, but that he is still deciding where he can be most effective.

Glenn Greenwald’s article about the DNC suit

In his tweet he said that Dems still are not facing up to why they lost

The DNC’S Lawsuit Against WikiLeaks Poses a Serious Threat to Press Freedom

I posted this on the Abbrev Pundit Roundup on DK/TOP and got 11 comments that basically said that Glenn is a piece of shit

I didn’t get zapped and am still rated 5 as a trusted user over there

One wonders who is advising @DNC on strategy. No political party should want to be anywhere near this kind of anti-free press precedent, let alone driving it its development: The DNC’S lawsuit against @WikiLeaks poses a serious threat to press freedom
