Was Hillary's Win Cooked?


For John, BLUFWell, voter fraud somewhere, but surely not here in our fair Commonwealth.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



One would like to think not.  The process is pretty straight forward.  From observing our voting here in Lowell it doesn't look like it is being faked, but who knows?  Nation of Change was arguing a couple of days ago that there are still five million votes to be counted in California.  How does that work out?  And, no, Nation of Change is not part of some vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

Anyway, The Observer, and Reporter Michael Sainato, give us:

Guccifer 2.0 Leak Reveals How DNC Rigged Primaries for Clinton

The sub-headline is "Hillary Clinton didn’t win the Democratic primaries through democratic means".

Guccifer 2.0 is not to be confused with Guccifer himself, the Rumanian hacker who is awaiting sentencing on Federal Charges.

Here is the lede:

Earlier this week, a lone hacker—self-dubbed Guccifer 2.0—breached DNC servers and reportedly obtained opposition research on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump.  The DNC confirmed the hack and hasn’t denied the authenticity of the documents released.  The Party has, however, continued to propagate that the hack was deployed by the Russian government—perhaps because the information that was released is far more revealing than just opposition research.

Internal memos, dated May 2015—long before the first state voted in the Democratic primary—referred to Hillary Clinton as though she was already the Democratic presidential nominee.  The documents leaked by Guccifer 2.0 not only illuminate the DNC’s efforts to ensure Clinton’s coronation but also reveal the strategies used to shield her from criticism on ethics, transparency and campaign finance reform—all vulnerabilities for the corrupt Establishment darling.

And, my Bernie loving friend out in Kansas, Matt, posted this 18 June item on Facebook:

Odds Hillary Won Without Widespread Fraud: 1 in 77 Billion Says Berkeley, Stanford Studies

And the sub-headline is "After applying various statistical models to subsets of 2016 primary voting data several academic researchers conclude Hillary Clinton’s win was only possible through widespread vote fraud."

So, our Democratic Party friends tell us voter fraud is a Republican Party myth.  I would like to think so, but when Progressive Democrats are crying voter fraud I have to stop and wonder.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
