DNC emails reveal depth of animosity

JULY 26, 2016

It looks like The Washington Post has not bothered to read the DNC emails.

On Monday, following the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the newspaper declared “Donna Brazile is an obvious choice as interim chair of the Democratic National Committee.”

This is the same DNC apparatchik who said last May she would not get involved in the kerfuffle between the Sanders camp and the DNC over representation on the Democrat platform committee.

“I have no intention of touching this,” Brazile said in an email to Patrice Taylor, the Director of Party Affairs & Delegate Selection at the Democratic National Committee, and other DNC superdelegates.

“Why? Because I will cuss out the Sanders camp!”

Edward Snowden tweeted out the email.

Despite Brazile’s obvious bias, The Washington Post held her up as a paragon of fairness:

For the DNC, there can be no more important quality in the interim chair than fairness — actual and perceived — after Wasserman Schultz resigned, following WikiLeaks’ release of hacked emails with evidence that party officials favored Hillary Clinton in her race against Sanders. While Wasserman Schultz was constantly accused by the Sanders campaign of harboring a pro-Clinton bias, Brazile, a regular presence on CNN during coverage of debates and state primaries, consistently provided impartial analysis.

Bizarrely, the Post insists Brazile remained neutral on Sanders until Clinton “won” the California primary. “Even then, she was highly complimentary,” the newspaper reported.

The scribes at the Post had ample time to research the leaked DNC emails and discover Brazile’s real attitude toward Bernie Sanders and his supporters.

Is it any wonder a growing number of Americans no longer believe the corporate media?

The Post and The New York Times continue to push skewered reportage favorable to the elite and its political class. The DNC leak demonstrates how the establishment media operates as a propaganda organ for the state, not only peddling misrepresentation, but outright lies.

Lies have deadly consequence, as millions of Iraqis discovered after The New York Times said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, a lie that set the stage for a neocon invasion of the country.

WashPost: America Can’t Declare Economic Independence Because Not Enough Whites


The Washington Post is reporting that U.S. might not be able to follow in the U.K.’s footsteps in reclaiming its economic independence because of the nation’s demographic makeup, which is the result of four decades of record high green card issuances to foreign nationals.

In a piece entitled, “No, Brexit Isn’t A Good Sign For Trump,” Washington Post’s Kim Soffen writes:

“There are certainly similarities between the referendum and the [Trump] campaign. Both are largely driven by immigration… Both are nationalist movements. Both are an instance of the will of the people going against the wishes of the elite… And their demographic support looks quite similar too.”

Yet Soffen writes that Brexit may not be a harbinger for Donald Trump’s future electoral success because the U.S. does not have as many white voters as Britain does.

“Largely at issue here is demographics. The British electorate is overwhelmingly white – 87 percent of its population is, according to its 2011 census. That’s compared to the United States’ 74 percent in 2014. That difference is significant for what direction each country votes.”

Indeed, while establishment media has pushed the narrative that immigration is a much more significant issue in Europe than it is the U.S., the facts do not bear this out. The U.S. has accepted 10 million more migrants from outside its borders than the European Union has absorbed from outside its borders, even though the EU has 200 million more people than the United States. Indeed, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, minority babies now outnumber white babies in the United States.

Soffen reports that polling data suggests non-whites tended to support the globalist position over the nationalist policy.

“Just like more minority-dense areas in the United States, like cities, tend to vote Democrat, minority-dense areas in the United Kingdom tended to vote to stay in the EU. In London, where 60 percent of citizens are non-white according to the 2011 Census, 60 percent of votes went against Brexit, compared to 48 percent nationwide.”

“Since the U.S. is far more diverse than the U.K., Brexit’s predictive power is even weaker,” Soffen concludes.

The Washington Post suggests that in order to have nationalist policies, the U.S. has to have a large population of whites in its country. Perversely, the Washington Post is essentially arguing that foreign nationals do not seem to have a strong enough allegiance to their new country to support a nationalist agenda over a more global, internationalist agenda — an argument, which dramatically undercuts the Washington Post’s general narrative on immigration and contradicts a core theme of its human interests stories, which seem designed to advance legislation that would expand U.S. immigration.

The demographic makeup the United States—which the Washington Post posits is the reason the U.S. could perhaps be incapable of voting in favor of reclaiming its national sovereignty—is the result of a Ted Kennedy-backed 1965 immigration rewrite, which opened up America’s borders to the world.

Kennedy’s immigration law lifted the immigration caps that had been place and opened up U.S. visas to migrants all across the globe.

While about nine in ten of the immigrants who came to the United States during the 19th and 20th century hailed from Europe, the 1965 law inverted that figure. Today about nine out of every ten new immigrants brought into the country on green cards come from non-Western countries in Latin America, Africa, Asia or the Middle East.

Following the law’s passage, 59 million immigrants entered the United States. Including their children, it added 72 million new residents to the U.S. population.

In 1965, according to Pew, the country was 84 percent white, 11 percent black, 4 percent Hispanic and less than 1 percent Asian– i.e. it had a white population that very similar in size to the white population of the U.K. today.

Unless Congress proposes legislation to curb the U.S. autopilot visa issuances, Pew projects that in forty years time as a result of large-scale immigration, “no racial or ethnic group will constitute a majority of the U.S. population,” as “whites are projected to become less than half of the U.S. population by 2055.” Therefore, by 2065, the nation would be 46 percent white, 24 percent Hispanic, 14 percent Asian and 13 percent black.

However, members of the globalist caucus in Washington including House Speaker Paul Ryan, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and President Barack Obama, have all pushed to accelerate this demographic transformation and have championed proposals to dramatically expand the nation’s record high immigration admissions.

Trump Caused Media Uproar by Banning Washington Post. Back in 2008, Obama Had a Similar Flare-Up


In 2008, at the tail end of a contentious presidential campaign with Senator John McCain, then-Senator Barack Obama’s team kicked three reporters from three different news outlets off of his campaign plane, echoing a similar flareup just yesterday when Donald Trump revoked press credentials from the Washington Post.

Reporters from the Dallas Morning News, Washington Times, and New York Post were barred from traveling on Obama’s campaign press charter plane during the crucial last days of a grueling battle for control of the White House.

The reporters were with publications that had recently endorsed McCain in editorials.

It is a common practice for journalists covering presidential campaigns to ride on the planes of candidates, sometimes during the entirety of a campaign; the news outlets pay for the cost of their traveling reporters.

At the time, the Obama campaign said the reporters were removed due to lack of seats on the plane.

However, John Solomon, then-executive editor of the Washington Times,questioned the timeliness of the decision, which he said occurred within two days of his paper endorsing Obama’s rival. The Washington Times reporter, Christina Bellantoni, had been covering the campaign with a seat on the plane for quite some time prior to being kicked off. Bellantoni is now with the politics team of the Los Angeles Times.

Said Solomon at the time:

“This feels like the journalistic equivalent of redistributing the wealth. We spent hundreds of thousands of dollars covering Senator Obama’s campaign, traveling on his plane, and taking our turn in the reporters’ pool, only to have our seat given away to someone else in the last days of the campaign.”

Yesterday, Donald Trump issued a statement revoking the Washington Post’s press credentials, ostensibly preventing its reporters from attending all Trump campaign events, sending journalists, advocates, and Trump foes into a tizzy.

Post executive editor Marty Baron called the move a “repudiation…of a free and independent press.”

The White House Correspondents’ Association also issued astatement Tuesday morning, condemning the Trump campaign’s decision.

Back in 2008, Obama’s spokesman at that time, Bill Burton, confirmed in a story that ran in Politico the campaign ditched the publications’ reporters because Obama’s message needed to reach “swing voters;” he added the decision to keep them off the campaign plane was a “tough choice.”

The Washington Times and the New York Post have long-been associated with more Republican-leaning voices. Burton added the campaign was making room for the three reporters on the campaign bus, however.
