I don’t know who should be more insulted by the Democrat party charade known as the 2016 nomination process: all Americans, or fellow Democrats who are being told that they have a choice of candidates.
Bernie Sanders, who not that long ago was leading the Iowa and New Hampshire polls over Hillary Clinton, has become nothing more than a shill for Hillary Clinton and the continuation of her purely selfish career.
First he gave Ms. Clinton a pass on her devastating email scandal, in which she has committed more potential crimes than General David Petraeus did and yet Petraeus was prosecuted and made to pay for sharing classified material with his own biographer.
In January 2015, officials reported the FBI and Justice Department prosecutors had recommended bringing felony charges against Petraeus for allegedly providing classified information to his biographer, Paula Broadwell… <Wikipedia>
That’s right, Petraeus shared classified information with his biographer and was prosecuted with a penalty that included possible jail time. In the eventual plea deal reached with Petraeus,
Prosecutors agreed to not send Petraeus to jail because the classified information was never released to the public or published in the biography of him that Broadwell wrote. <CNN.com, link>
Now let’s contrast this with Hillary Clinton’s security breaches:
An intelligence community review has re-affirmed that two classified emails were indeed “top secret” when they hit Hillary Clinton’s unsecured personal server despite a challenge to that designation by the State Department, according to two sources familiar with the review. The subject matter of the messages is widely reported to be the movement of North Korean missiles and a drone strike. <Foxnews.com, link>
At this point we all know that Ms. Clinton’s willful violation of protocols concerning the handling of classified documents is of far greater threat to our nation than the far-lesser breaches that have led to successful prosecutions. And yet here is what Bernie said in the first Democrat “debate”:
For him to let her off the hook in this manner, on something as deadly serious as her “rules and laws don’t apply to me” reckless conduct, established clearly that Bernie is in the bag for Clinton.
And now there is this latest Bernie sell-out of the Democrat party: he just gave the weekend morning shows some sound bites about his belief that Bill Clinton’s sex life should not be brought up by Donald Trump because it is not relevant to the presidential race (link). Put aside whether you believe Bill Clinton’s tyrannical abuse of women is worthy of being discussed: if you are Bernie Sanders, and you want to win the nomination, why are your rushing in to save Hillary Clinton from this toxic subject?
Hey, Bernie, what did Hillary Clinton or people close to her say to you to get you to surrender the nomination like this?
Was it the same thing she told Joe Biden to get him to not run at all? You know, the Vice President of the United States for seven years now, a man whose career ambition is to become president, and whose wife thinks he should run, and who does not have failed savings and loans and Benghazi in his background, but who is NOT RUNNING?
Finally, if you are a registered Democrat, how can you stand this charade, this hijacking of your party by the Clinton machine?
