Scandal? What Scandal?
Look what WikiLeaks dragged in

This is an excellent article that shows how those inside the democratic power structure saw the emerging scandal of Hillary’s emails and private server. As this scandal broke they did not feel it was anything to be concerned with because they believed they could control it and sweep it under the rug. They are the elite and not subject to the laws that the little people are subject to.
And what a story they tell. America’s greatest novelists could not have concocted a tale that so perfectly confirms dark suspicions about how the liberal elites running America really operate. Taken in total, the picture Podesta’s emails present is of a man whose tentacles are adroitly moving all the levers of power. In retrospect, Podesta’s casual attitude toward Clinton’s email problems doesn’t look oblivious—it looks prescient. Why should he worry about disgrace for Hillary Clinton when he and his friends in politics, business, and the media dictate what becomes a scandal?
The power elite feel that they can mold the story and make the little people accept whatever the power elite want the agenda to be. Those with money and influence decide where the government leads the people. This is why Trump is doing so well. We want a Knight in Shining Armor to come and protect us from the fire breathing dragon.
What the Podesta emails mainly highlight is how disingenuous the Democratic political agenda has become. In one email, dated April 28, 2015, Neera Tanden, the head of the Center for American Progress—the influential liberal think tank founded by Podesta—warns the Clinton campaign against backing a $15 minimum wage. “Substantively, we have not supported $15—you will get a fair number of liberal economists who will say it will lose jobs,” writes Tanden.
Talk about influence. The section below explains how Wall Street directed the soon to be Obama administration what and how to run the country. This is how the country is being run. The tax payer and the voter are just along for the ride. Big money donors are calling the tunes that our professional politicians dance to.
Trump is seen by many of those who support him as the candidate who can break this bond. When Trump says that he wants to make America Great again he means that the tax payers and the voters get to call the tune that elected officials dance to.
While Tanden was right to warn against embracing the sort of populist socialism that Bernie Sanders’s campaign would promote, the Podesta emails suggest that Sanders’s critique of Democratic elites’ being in thrall to Wall Street is on target. According to the New Republic, the most damning of the lot is an October 6, 2008, email from Michael Froman, currently the U.S. Trade Representative. He formerly served as chief of staff for Secretary of the Treasury Robert Rubin in the Clinton White House and worked with Barack Obama at the Harvard Law Review. At the time he emailed Podesta, Froman was an executive at Citigroup and Podesta was co-chair of Obama’s presidential transition team. The email had the subject “Lists.” Attached to the email were three lists of people who could fill 31 Obama cabinet positions, organized by sex and ethnicity.
“[The lists] correctly identified Eric Holder for the Justice Department, Janet Napolitano for Homeland Security, Robert Gates for Defense, Rahm Emanuel for chief of staff, Peter Orszag for the Office of Management and Budget, Arne Duncan for Education, Eric Shinseki for Veterans Affairs, Kathleen Sebelius for Health and Human Services, Melody Barnes for the Domestic Policy Council, and more,” notes David Dayen in the New Republic. “For the Treasury, three possibilities were on the list: Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, and Timothy Geithner.” In other words, a month before the 2008 election, an executive at Citigroup, which would soon receive the largest federal bailout of any bank during the financial crisis, was basically dictating the makeup of the Obama cabinet.
The bottom line here is that the Wikileaks released documents tell a story about how the powerful run the country and the voters are just there to pay the bills. The power elite don’t feel they are subject to the rules or the laws that the rest of us are.
The media is trying to hold the lid on all this information and to manage the election to make sure Hillary wins. They need Hillary to win because they own her. Trump can’t be allowed to win because Trump is a loose cannon and threatens to empower the voters and taxpayers just like the Constitution promised.
The Media is losing and Trump is winning. We will be Great again!!!
