Blog/2016 U.S. Presidential Election
Posted Oct 21, 2016 by Martin Armstrong
Megyn Kelly grilled Donna Brazile on the recently released videos that show the Democratic National Committee (DNC) hiring people to create violence at Trump rallies in an effort to discredit Trump supporters. American political activist James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, released the undercover tapes entitled “Rigging the Election” to expose the corruption behind the curtain.
When questioned by Kelly, DNC Chairwoman Brazile dismissed the tapes by claiming that O’Keefe had doctored the videos. “No one has come out to question the validity of these tapes,” probed Kelly, “In fact, they’ve acted on them.” Kelly questioned why the DNC would fire two staff members if they held the belief that the tapes were falsified. However, Brazile insisted that the DNC did not “fire” the staff members, but rather they “stepped aside” to avoid becoming “a distraction” to the Clinton campaign.
In addition to the incriminating tapes, Hillary’s leaked e-mails contain further evidence that the DNC is engaging in foul play. On March 12, 2016, Brazile sent an email to Jennifer Palmieri, the director of communications for the Clinton campaign, with the subject line, “From time to time I get questions in advance.” The email contained a specific question about abolishing the death penalty that the staffers wanted to share with Hillary.
On the following day at a town hall meeting hosted by CNN and TV One, Hillary was questioned on her position on the death penalty in wording that was identical to Brazile’s email. Brazile’s close ties to CNN as a former analyst have raised concerns over whether the network is leaking information to the Clinton campaign. CNN’s own Jack Tapper called the incident “completely unethical” and personally believes that question in the email was provided by moderator Roland Martin or someone around him.
When presented with the evidence, Brazile dismissed the conspiracy by employing the same excuse used to explain the O’Keefe tapes — the document was falsified. “I am a Christian woman so I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false,” Brazile defended before discrediting the validity of all the emails recovered from Hillary’s server. “I have my documents. I have my files. Thank god I haven’t had my emails ripped off from me and stolen and given to some criminal to come back altered.”
There is no hope left for a fair or honest election process. This will be the most outrageous election in American history, and it will illustrate what our computer has been warning — 2015.75 was the peak in government and it is all downhill from here.
The models are still pointing to a surge in a turn out and the Trump “should win” that does not change. However, I personally remain skeptical and keep in mind that the computer projected Gore should have beat Bush. Only after the fact when the count was finally really verified, Gore did win, but the courts handed it to Bush. So a Hillary victory “appears” more likely, but the computer is merely doing the very same thing again and suggesting that 3 out of four models project a Republican victory. Hillary has a 25% chance to win legitimately. That remains to be seen.
As I have said before, a Hillary victory would be far more devastating because it will tend to push the global economy over the edge. ONLY the United States economy is holding up the entire world, which is why the IMF and others plead with the Fed not to raise rates and it should be more considered with international policy objectives surrendering domestic policy to save the world. With Hillary raising taxes on small business, she will increase the cost of labor and that will have the net effect of increasing unemployment in addition to the next wave of taxes coming from Obamacare January 1st, 2017. The US economy is headed down rather hard into 2020. This was the projection anyhow, but Hillary may increase the magnitude of the decline. Trump could not reverse that trend and given the extent that the establishment is out for his blood, the magnitude of the decline might be the same in any event lacking the cooperation of Capital Hill.
