The latest Wikileaks document drop involves more than 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails and files (Twitter hashtags #DNCleaks and #DNCleak). Lies, corruption, bias, blowback, collusion. Those are not my words. Those are the words that some in the online media are using to describe the truth of the leaks.
For example, here are a few sources that will provide readers with some idea of what those emails and files say — and it isn’t pretty (H/T NewsWatchCanada).
- Victor Smith at Regated writes about how the DNC is panicking because Wikileaks is exposing their lies and corruption;
- Daniel Halper & Joe Tacopino of the New York Post lays bare how the leaked emails demonstrate how biased DNC officials are for Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders;
- John Wagner of the Washington Post discusses how there is blowback from progressive groups regarding Timothy Kaine’s pick as VP; and
- Reuters highlights the collusion by DNC top officials re an anti-Sanders pro-Clinton bias.
Yes, I know, politics is not called a blood sport for nothing. But, there is nothing sporting about the anti-Sanders betrayal and subversion. Remember, the DNC is supposed to be a neutral organization.
However, over and above the anti-Sanders bias indicated in the #DNCleaks, in my opinion, the allegation of collusion between the DNC, Clinton and the media is the most damaging. I mean, what the leaks expose is the reality that an awful lot of professional mainstream journalists are quite willing to do the DNC’s partisan bidding.
And so, on the eve of the 2016 Democratic Convention, the question is: will Sanders, knowing how the DNC undermined him every step of the way, continue to endorse Hillary Clinton for President?
As well, will the super delegates chosen by the DNC continue to support Clinton knowing what we know now, including what the Chicago Tribune refers to as her contempt for the rule of law.
As a Canadian, I don’t have a horse in this race but I have many American friends who do. I like both Sanders and Trump because they both have a message that rings true, even though they are on opposite sides of the political spectrum.
However, no matter what messaging comes out of Hillary Clinton’s mouth at this week’s Democratic Convention, as a progressive Tory, I have a feeling the spin won’t matter because the leaks will have done their damage. And, speaking of damage, for those who would like to check out this first installment of the Wikileaks, they can click here.
The crux of the matter is that the #DNCleaks are going to result in Republican nominee Donald Trump winning in November. Why? Because, Americans are now going to realize the extent of the corruption on the left. Meaning, the 2016 U.S. presidential election is now a fight for the very soul of America.
