White Black Man From BLM Quits Democratic Party Over Corruption

Shaun King, the white man who identifies as black, who writes for the New York Daily News, has decided to quit the democratic party over what he describes as massive corruption.  In a recent article, King launches an all out attack on Hillary Clinton and the democratic party.  In an especially long story, King points out the hypocrisy and the corruption of the democratic party.  He may not be voting for Donald Trump, but it is unlikely that he plans to vote for Hillary.

Here are some of his attacks on the party of Ponzi:

Right now, the Democratic Party, which I have called home my entire life, is deeply in love with money. Consequently, its leaders have supported and advanced all kinds of evil, big and small, in devotion to this love affair.

In essence, Hillary Clinton and the DNC each wants us to believe that lobbyists and SuperPACs don’t expect anything from them in return for their money. This is the most basic, foolish, offensive lie they could ever tell. Of course they want something in return. That’s the business they’re in.

King points out that much of the “fundraising” Clinton has done for the DNC and state poarties ends up right back into her pocket:

According to Politico, “The victory fund has transferred $3.8 million to the state parties, but almost all of that cash ($3.3 million, or 88%) was quickly transferred (back) to the DNC, usually within a day or two, by the Clinton staffer who controls the committee, POLITICO’s analysis of the FEC records found.”

Who really got the money? The Clinton campaign pocketed almost all of it and state parties were left with one penny on the dollar.

Did you know that Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was a co-chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign against Obama, and is now the chair of the DNC, earlier this year did away with all of the restrictions on lobbyists that President Obama put in place?

According to the Washington Post,

“The DNC’s recent, more sweeping reversal of the previous ban on donations from lobbyists and political action committees was confirmed by three Democratic lobbyists who said they have already received solicitations from the committee. The lobbyists requested anonymity to speak freely about the committee’s decision, which has been otherwise kept quiet.”

King lambastes the democrats for their willingness to stoop to any level to rake in the big bucks from lobbyists and corporations seeking favors:

“For the most part, they (the lobbyists) said, the DNC has returned to business as usual, pre-2008. The DNC has even named a finance director specifically for PAC donations who has recently emailed prospective donors to let them know that they can now contribute again, according to an email that was reviewed by The Washington Post.”

Campaign watchdog groups were furious. This is a disgusting and unnecessary reversion, but it gives us a real clue into how the Democratic Party sincerely sees money in politics. They love it. They certainly didn’t do this for Bernie Sanders. His campaign does not accept donations from SuperPACs or lobbyists and he’s won 21 primaries and caucuses without it. The Clinton campaign, on the other hand, is awash in this type of money.

King points out that Hillary is using state parties to money launder for her campaign in order to beat the $2,700 dollar contribution limit:

On April 18, the Sanders campaign wrote an open letter declaring that Clinton’s campaign was violating campaign finance laws through an unethical joint arrangement with the DNC. The Clinton campaign’s response was that she was actually raising money for down-ticket Democrats. Two weeks later, though, Politico released an amazing investigative report which found that out of the $61 million the Clinton campaign was raising for state parties, the parties were only allowed to keep 1% of it. You read that correctly. I’ll spell it out so that you know a digit wasn’t missing. They got to keep one percent of the funds she claimed she raised for them.

It appears to be a money laundering scheme. Do you remember when George Clooney said that Bernie Sanders and his supporters were right to be disgusted by the fact that some seats at the fundraiser cost $353,400 per couple, but that he could live with it because the money was mainly going to help smaller candidates win local elections?

King also points out that the Clooney fundraiser that charged $353,400 per couple that was supposedly was meant to bolster democrats down the ticket is a lie and that like a pig at the trough, Hillary eats up all the proceeds:

According to Politico, “The victory fund has transferred $3.8 million to the state parties, but almost all of that cash ($3.3 million, or 88%) was quickly transferred (back) to the DNC, usually within a day or two, by the Clinton staffer who controls the committee, POLITICO’s analysis of the FEC records found.”

Who really got the money? The Clinton campaign pocketed almost all of it and state parties were left with one penny on the dollar.

The Politico report continued: “By contrast, the victory fund has transferred $15.4 million to Clinton’s campaign and $5.7 million to the DNC, which will work closely with Clinton’s campaign if and when she becomes the party’s nominee. And most of the $23.3 million spent directly by the victory fund has gone toward expenses that appear to have directly benefited Clinton’s campaign, including $2.8 million for ‘salary and overhead’ and $8.6 million for web advertising that mostly looks indistinguishable from Clinton campaign ads and that has helped Clinton build a network of small donors who will be critical in a general election expected to cost each side well in excess of $1 billion.”

Of course, none of this is happenstance or coincidence. All of this is a well orchestrated plan. The American people are just now beginning to understand this ugliness. It’s one of the primary reasons why 10 million people have voted for Bernie Sanders and why he has won 21 contests without even a smidgeon of support from the Democratic Party.

The thing is, though, the Democratic Party isn’t really very democratic. It’s sincerely just a machine for Hillary Clinton.

King accuses Debbie Wasserman Schultz as a Hillary shill, who expects rewards from a Hillary victory”

I’ll give it to her — Debbie Wasserman Schultz will say or do anything to get Hillary Clinton elected, even if it means completely ignoring the political reality that nearly half of the people who’ve voted in this primary have declared that they want to see lobbyists and SuperPACs out of politics. Her words and her deeds throughout this campaign have not only been unethical, but are out of step with the future of the party. Voters under the age of 45 prefer Bernie because they trust him and his principles. Wasserman Schultz and Clinton represent a brand of politics that they know well, but we’re simply tired of it.Another op-ed was just released calling on her to be replaced.

King also points out that Robert Reich, who was a big part of the Bill Clinton administration is calling for the formation of a new third party should Hillary win:

Robert Reich, the famed economist who served as Labor Secretary under Bill Clinton, went so far on Thursday to suggest that a new party should be formedif Hillary wins the election.

Reich said, “Never, ever give up fighting against the increasing concentration of wealth and power at the top, which is undermining our democracy and distorting our economy. That means, if Hillary Clinton is elected, I urge you to turn Bernie’s campaign into a movement — even a third party — to influence elections at the state level in 2018 and the presidency in 2020. No movement to change the allocation of power succeeds easily or quickly. We are in this for the long haul.”

King finishes up by pointing out Hillary’s loyalty to Goldman Sachs over the taxpayers and criticizes her refusal to release the transcripts of her Wall Street speeches:

Clinton’s refusal to release the transcripts of her speeches to Goldman Sachs was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me. Her indignant and irrational excuses made no sense — particularly in light of the reports stating that the transcripts would ruin her campaign and made her sound like an executive at the company.

I’ll start where I left off — the root of all of this is the love of money. In this campaign, Bernie Sanders, with a ragtag group of misfits, proved to the world that another way exists. He has created a blueprint for us on how we build a political movement without the money from billionaire class and their special interests.
