Our Democracy is in Danger!
I don’t say that lightly of course, on the contrary I dare not — say it out loud — for fear the ring of truth in those words might break my heart.
But as a Marylander and an American, I must say something.
Today I witnessed a miscarriage of justice, played out on national TV — so it’s no secret – of a scale so massive that it truly scares me.
Hillary Clinton has apparently violated any number of county, state, and most especially, federal election laws by her direct, and indirect manipulation of the Democratic primary process, and it was all there for all to see — if you just watched the TV carefully.
A single candidate benefitted from this DNC/DOJ conspiracy, which is ongoing, Hillary herself.
Bernie cannot fix this, he’s a victim of “Beaten Wife” syndrome, he can’t turn on the house breadwinner, and admit abuse to the police, or worse — get the abuser arrested, because that leaves the family (Democratic Party) house — without a chance of survival.
This of course isn’t true, Bernie made a big mistake, supporting this criminal and it will reflect badly on him. I got him wrong, I really thought he would resist her hardball tactics, and illegal campaign actions, right to the bitter end – but she apparently found an angle to manipulate him with – and he folded.
But todays action was the most despicable yet. Hillary has a police union problem. Her campaign plank even contains a line calling for police “reform” which is code for: “Get the racism out.” The problem is, the rank and file police aren’t racists — and they know it.
From one end of the country to the other, police department ranks (almost universally), are as, or more, integrated than the civil populations they serve.
Why is this a crisis for Hillary? Because that thin Blue line of Philly cops outside the convention center wall is all she has standing between her and the fiasco that would result – if the thin Blue line failed – allowing thousands of pissed off Bernie supporter’s to storm the convention floor, while chanting for the man they rightly believe, had the nomination stolen from him.
No, no, Hillary the control freak could never stand that. So Marilyn Mosby, the disgraced Baltimore City prosecutor was summoned to gavel open the convention — in place of the even more disgraced Debbie Wasserman Shultz, and a deal was cut.
Marilyn would get a spot in the new Clinton administration and Marilyn would also (coincidentally) drop all the remaining charges, against the remaining officers charged in the Freddie Gray case, a development that also occurred, remarkably. just today. Shame.
These Democrats are dirty — and now Hillary’s shame will become the country’s shame — as we ALL have to painfully unravel what she did, charge the conspirators, and enact reform to make sure something like this cannot happen again.
What is our alternative as a nation? To say it’s OK to screw over a huge number of Bernie (or other) voters, and let somebody rig an election — just because she’s a woman? That’s crazy AND a threat to our Democracy.
