ELDER PATRIOT – This week is not starting well for the Democrat Resistance Movement.
First, they are being forced to deal with the optics of President Trump’s monumental first two and a half days in the Middle East that, because of the president’s successes, has cast previous administrations as being completely inept or having deliberately clung to a failed paradigm.
There’s also this damning ditty that surfaced this morning. More evidence has been released that Democrats claims of Russian hacking with the intention of helping Donald Trump was a lie. And, that to cover their tracks they had the real leaker – a DNC staffer with intimate knowledge of the party’s illegal voter registration scheme – murdered to send a message to anyone else thinking about betraying the “family.”
The illegal actions and lies, that the Democratic Party used to prop up Hillary Clinton and her failing presidential campaign, are coming back to haunt them from every angle. The party’s rank and file have had enough of it’s heavy-handed Marxist practices.
Now, Bernie Sanders’ supporters, who were disenfranchised by the DNC’s decision to ignore them in favor of Hillary Clinton, want their money back.
Harvard law expert, Jared Beck has filed a class-action lawsuit against the DNC and former chairwomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz charging the deliberate misappropriation of campaign funds.
The lawsuit seeks restitution for the residents of 45 states that backed Bernie Sanders’ campaign. The basis for the suit comes from leaked documents that prove DNC officials conspired to undermine Sanders during the party’s primaries.
Directly named in the filings are the DNC and its former chairwomen, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
While lawyers defending the DNC have been trying to get the lawsuit dismissed, Beck refuses to be deterred in his demand that the Democratic Party be forced to repay Sanders supporters for the contributions they made prior to Hillary being given the party’s nomination.
The foundation for Beck’s lawsuit comes from Article 5 Section 4 of the Democratic Party charter that stipulates the DNC will function with total neutrality during Democratic primaries.
Speaking for the defense, Bruce Spiva argued that, “We could have voluntarily decided that, ‘Look, we’re gonna go into back rooms like they used to and smoke cigars and pick the candidate that way.’ That’s not the way it was done. But they could have. And that would have also been their right.”
That is exactly what they did. While legal scholars with expertise in this area believe the Democratic Party will be successful in defending itself, it will do nothing to assuage the disgust of the party’s most aggressive and involved rank and file activists that the party relies on to energize its voter base.
It’s scary how the D.C. swamp can pull anyone down. Trump escaped it for less than three days and what happens? His star and America’s star are soaring and the swamp is devouring itself.
My word, we need Trump to drain this mess.
