The Democratic Party did everything in its power to assure Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) lost his bid to be the party’s nominee in 2016 and it appears to be doing so again. The Iowa caucuses, held on February 3rd, were a mind-boggling case study in ineptitude, disinformation, and subterfuge, the results of which are still not accurately known as I write this. Or, should I say, the results of which have still not been accurately released, either to the candidates themselves or to the general public. Vote totals didn’t add up, percentages didn’t jibe, processes broke down or never worked in the first place, and confusion reigned supreme. It was a clown show, a goat-rodeo, a pathetic Chinese fire drill, a cock-up of epic proportions. In other words, SNAFU. Or was it? Perhaps the local Iowa DNC was pressured by the national DNC into finding a way to avoid giving Sen. Sanders (a.k.a. “Comrade Commie”) a victory and a momentum boost heading into New Hampshire. (Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, for one, stated flatly that Bernie won the election and Mayor Pete Buttigieg came in second.)
According to the New York Times, the Hawkeye Caucuses were “riddled with errors and inconsistencies.” The Old Gray Lady’s report noted that over 100 precincts had missing information or results that “were not possible under the complex rules of the Iowa caucuses.” Not possible? There is more intrigue ahead for the Democrats, and rank speculation abounds as to what lengths the DNC might be willing to go to in order to prevent Sanders, a self-described Socialist, from becoming the leader and face of the Democratic Party.
Democrats claim that President Trump interfered in the 2016 election, a claim for which there is no evidence whatsoever. They, however, demonstrably colluded to interfere in the 2016 election, and are intent on actively colluding and interfering in their own caucuses and primary elections during the 2020 election cycle, as well.
Democrats can’t stomach the thought of Trump winning reelection. And many party leaders can’t stomach the thought of Sanders becoming the party’s nominee, precisely because they don’t think he can beat Trump. The truth of the matter is that Democrats are worried that the American people may interfere in the coming election(s). And that they can’t abide.
