Sanders Never Had a Chance: WikiLeaks Exposes Democratic National Committee’s Rigged Process in Favor of Clinton

A race to be Democrat nominee never existed, things rigged from the start last year to select Clinton party standard bearer.

The process was like holding a world series or super bowl with only one team represented.

Sanders never had a chance and knew it, enjoying his extended 15 minutes of fame while it lasted – caving in the end as expected, endorsing what he campaigned against, betraying supporters, proving he’s just another dirty self-serving politician.

Last week’s WikiLeaks revelations of thousands of Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails showed party support for Clinton, plotting against Sanders, rigging things to make her party nominee.

Assorted dirty tricks were used, including DNC/media collusion (notoriously from the NYT, operating as a virtual Clinton press agent), as well as fundraising on her behalf.

Sanders never had a chance. Party bosses chose Clinton, rigging the process for her, stealing primaries and caucuses, more evidence of a political system too corrupted to fix – fantasy democracy, not the real thing.

The people’s choice” is doublespeak for what monied interests want and get. Elections are farcical. Ordinary people have no say whatever – voting a waste of time.

Trump reacted to WikiLeaks’ dump of DNC emails, tweeting “(l)eaked e-mails of DNC show plans to destroy Bernie Sanders. Mock his heritage and much more…really vicious. RIGGED.”

Tim Kaine is, and always has been, owned by the banks. Bernie supporters are outraged, was their last choice.

He was counted out before campaigning began last year. So are independent candidates like Green Party presumptive presidential nominee Jill Stein – excluded from national coverage and party standard bearer debates.

Voters are denied a chance to hear genuine progressive views, representing their interests, not special ones exclusively.

Democrats invade Philadelphia this week, intending circus proceedings like Republicans – lots of pomp and circumstance, no substance.

On Thursday, things culminate with Clinton accepting her party’s nomination – a legally challenged war criminal/racketeer belonging in prison, not high office.

The deplorable truth about America’s political system is it’s too debauched to fix – fantasy democracy masquerading as the real thing, voters with no say on how they’re governed.
