CNN, ABC, NPR, BBC, the Associated Press, the NY Times, USA Today, FOX News, and NBC all came out of the gates Tuesday morning claiming Hillary Clinton has made history and “clinched” the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
According to the report from CNN:
Hillary Clinton — former first lady, former U.S. senator, and former secretary of state — has become the first woman to capture a major-party nomination for president, taking another step in a journey that once seemed impossible, but over the last eight years has seemed inevitable.
As her supporters take to the streets to claim that ‘history has been made,’ the rest of America is wondering how Clinton has won the nomination — especially considering the fact that this nomination does not take place until July 25, in Philadelphia.
What the mainstream is doing by claiming Clinton has “clinched” the nomination, is effectively steering public focus away from Bernie Sanders and onto her. The corporate media is essentially rendering the remaining primaries impotent.
This runaway claim by nearly every mainstream outlet in the world is based on unofficial polls conducted by NBC and the AP throughout the 2016 election. According to NBC and the AP, they note that Hillary Clinton has reached the “magic number” of delegates, 2383, needed to win the nomination.
However, as Shadowproof points out, if it is true that history happened, why didn’t Clinton’s own party congratulate her? How come there was no statement from the Democratic National Committee?
Nothing in the news shows that Clinton has received so much as a ‘congrats’ for wrapping up the nomination by the Democratic National Convention. In fact, President Obama has yet to even give Hilldog his official wand waving — despite the mainstream media claiming that it’s already in the pipeline.
In an April interview on CNN, the DNC’s communications director, Luis Miranda explained that the unofficial delegate counts are virtually meaningless.
“Any night that you have a primary or caucus, and the media lumps the superdelegates in—that they basically polled by calling them up and saying who are you supporting—they don’t vote until the convention. And so, they shouldn’t be included in any count,” Miranda told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “Because they’re not actually voting, and they are likely to change their mind. Look at 2008 and what happened then was there was all this assumption about what superdelegates were going to do, and many of them did change their mind before the convention and it shifted the results in the end.”
What the media has done is effectively tried to steer the election in the favor of Hillary by distorting reality. However, the reason that Clinton hasn’t received the ‘congrats’ from the DNC is because the superdelegates do not vote until July.
After the media rendered his campaign useless through this act of reality assassination, Bernie Sanders released the following statement:
“It is unfortunate that the media, in a rush to judgement, are ignoring the Democratic National Committee’s clear statement that it is wrong to count the votes of superdelegates before they actually vote at the convention this summer.
“Secretary Clinton does not have and will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to secure the nomination. She will be dependent on superdelegates who do not vote until July 25 and who can change their minds between now and then. They include more than 400 superdelegates, who endorsed Secretary Clinton 10 months before the first caucuses and primaries and long before any other candidate was in the race.”
As her clearly delusional and overtly corrupt supporters cheer her on, Hillary Clinton manages to avoid prosecution and scrutiny, and maintains a public persona — thanks largely to the mainstream media — that she is America’s saving grace.
In spite of the rampant election fraud, allegations of vote rigging, and voter suppression — much of which was captured on video — Clinton continues to charge on.
In spite of emails that show she did, in fact, break the law, America’s darling warmonger remains unscathed.
Here at the Free Thought Project, we have been documenting and predicting that this would happen as the system is set up in such a way that those who challenge the status quo are not allowed in.
Whether your candidate was Bernie Sanders, Gary Johnson, or even Ron Paul from years ago, the fact is that nothing short of a revolution will allow them to be viable leaders.
As George Carlin famously said, “It’s a big club and you ain’t in it!”
The good news is that Americans are waking up to the fact that their rulers are ‘selected’ and not ‘elected.’ Once enough people realize that the puppet claiming to represent them in the White House is not, never will be, and never can be beholden to them, this peaceful revolution will reach critical mass.
It is up to us to remain vigilant in the face of popular ignorance. We must refuse to be silenced and continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom.
The internet, like the printing press of the 15th century, has revolutionized the dissemination of information and provides the tools we need to incite this positive change.
The encouraging effects of the spread of information are materializing daily.
So while the future police state and the rigged election system may look unrelentingly ominous at the moment, rest assured that a peaceful future is in our future. The ideas of peace and freedom are spreading like wildfire to the most remote corners of the planet, thanks to the internet.
No war mongering police state nor their tyrannical army can ever stop an idea whose time has come. Every time someone wakes up to the harsh reality of the drug war, policing for profit, political corruption, or endless wars, a small death blow is dealt to the status quo.
Please help to deal out these death blows by sharing this article with your friends and family.
