Who Killed Seth Rich?

(UPDATED 8/6 to include two three other deaths of people who could have had potentially damaging information on Hillary Clinton and the DNC.)

On July 10th, a 27 year old DNC staffer named Seth Rich was mysteriously shot and killed in Washington, DC.  RIP.  I say mysteriously because nothing was taken, the neighborhood was not known for random shootings, he wasn't a gang member, wasn't a cop, and had no criminal or drug history. There were no witnesses, and so far no videos.

What makes this interesting is what this man's job was; he was a data guy at the DNC.  His specific area was in expanding voter rolls, you know, the kind of thing Democrats have been known for, like getting cemeteries, felons, illegals, Disney characters, etc. to vote Democrat.

That might be interesting by itself, but what makes it even more interesting is that 10 days later, WikiLeaks began releasing hacked content from DNC servers.

Could Seth Rich have been the leak?  Could he have been murdered by the target, or the recipient?Could he have been selling data?  Will we ever know?  Could blaming the Russians be a diversion like the filmmaker in Benghazi?

I generally avoid trafficking in conspiracy theories, but murder is, to quote Joe Biden, "a big fucking deal."  Questions need to be answered.  What was this man doing at the DNC?  What was his access? What do his family and friends know about his activities? Who investigated and went to his home? Was anything taken?  Does WikiLeaks even know the source of their material?

I'm sure the investigative "journalists" in the pop media will be all over this mystery.  Not.  And that alone speaks volumes.


There have now been a total of three four mysterious deaths surrounding Hillary Clinton and the DNC.

John Jones, lawyer for WikiLeak's Julian Assange, was mysteriously struck and killed by a train on April 21st in London.

John Ashe, an ex- UN official about to testify in a case that involved the DNC and certain Arkansas connections of the Clintons, was found dead in his home gym June 22nd.  His throat was reportedly crushed by a barbell.

Shawn Lucas was found dead on August 2nd.  Mr. Lucas made a video that went viral showing him serving a lawsuit against the DNC's Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Hillary Clinton.  There are no reports yet about how he died.

The Clinton War on Women

Tonight's keynote speaker at the #DNCconvention will be a multiple accused rapist, and coincidentally, the most popular non-serving politician in the Democrat Party.  That makes his wife, who enabled his behavior throughout his career, an accessory to rape.  She of course is Hillary Clinton, the Democrat Party's nominee.

Support and help make this video trend on Bill's big night.   Help end the Clinton War on Women!  


Are Democrats Targeting Filmmakers?

(UPDATED 8/6 to include the death of videomaker Shawn Lucas.)

If you watched day #1 of the DNC convention, you would know that enemy #1 for the Democrats, tied even with Donald Trump, is a SCOTUS decision known as "Citizens United".   This was a legal dispute that centered around a film about Hillary Clinton which Democrats tried to suppress using the McCain-Feingold campaign finance restrictions.  Democrats lost the case opening the floodgates for filmmakers to make movies and, gasp, show them to the public.  By the anger and vitriol aimed at this case one would think the SCOTUS was selling baby parts or something!   

Here is a list of other filmmakers the Democrats hate so much they have sent some to prison, had some audited by the IRS, and have used just about every tentacle of government to try to bully them into submission:     

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, an Egyptian born Christian who made a YouTube video critical of Mohammed, was the ultimate political prisoner.  He was the scapegoat blamed by Obama and Clinton for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, so they put him in prison for a year on dubious tangential charges.  Even Vladimir Putin was incredulous.  Nakoula's imprisonment was orchestrated to distract from the failure of Obama and Clinton to protect and defend their people in Libya, and to divert attention from the increasing risk of Islamic terrorism which they claimed to have defeated.  The diversion worked, of course, and they got reelected.     

Joel Gilbert:  Mr. Gilbert made an anti-Obama film called "Dreams From My Real Father".  It drew the ire of Democrats on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) who voted unanimously to punish Mr. Gilbert.  When Republicans pointed out that liberal filmmakers like Michael Moore were not similarly harassed, the punishment was eventually blocked. Were it not for the split FEC, Mr. Gilbert would have been sanctioned for making a movie critical of Barack Obama.

Dinesh D'Souza: Mr. D'Souza admitted giving more money than was allowed by federal law to a college friend who was running for office.  More importantly though, he made a couple of anti-Obama films in 2012 and 2013.  As a result of the ostensible campaign finance violation, he was confined for eight months, put on five months probation, and forced to undergo psychological counseling.   Here's what liberal Harvard legal scholar Alan Dershowitz said about his conviction and sentence:  
“The idea of charging him with a felony for this doesn’t sound like a proper exercise of prosecutorial discretion.... I can’t help but think that [D'Souza's] politics have something to do with it.... It smacks of selective prosecution.” He went on to say such alleged campaign violations are common in politics.
(Uptdate:  Dinesh D'Souza has a new film currently in theaters called "Hillary's America",  which is doing quite well.  My advice to Dinesh?  Pack your bags for another stint...)

David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt:  These two were behind the Planned Parenthood undercover videos made by The Center for Medical Progress.  Barack Obama himself made a point to single them out.  As part of their cover they used fake IDs that somehow became a pretense for felony charges, a raid on Daleidon's home, and seizures of his property.
“To storm into a private citizen’s home with a search warrant is outrageously out of proportion for the type of crime alleged,” said Matt Heffron a former federal prosecutor who is now Daleiden’s legal adviser. “It’s a discredit to law enforcement, an oppressive abuse of government power.”
(Update: Breaking news!  As of today, all charges in Texas have been dropped against Daleiden.  But the damage is done, his funding dried up, he was sidelined for the primaries, and the harassment succeeded.)

James O'Keefe, Joseph Basel, Robert Flanagan, and Stan Dai: These people were part of James O'Keefe's undercover video organization, Project Veritas, the organization that single-handedly took down one of Obama's favorite community organizer activist groups, ACORN. They went on to investigate Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu and ran afoul of the FBI while trying to make a film about her. They eventually settled for misdemeanor charges and accepted probation, fines, and community service.  O'keefe has also been harassed by Obama's DHS for making films about the open Mexican border.

Logan Clements: Mr. Clements made a movie called "Sick and Sicker...", an unflattering portrayal of Obamacare.  For his disloyalty he was handed his first ever IRS audit.  Coincidence?  Perhaps.  

Breitbart News:  This could be another amazing coincidence, but Breitbart News also earned their first IRS audit.   Breitbart is a multi-media internet megaphone that is foursquare opposed to Obama's policies.  (Also, see David Bossie below who contributes occasionally to Breitbart.) 

Glenn Beck, Pat Grey, and Scott Baker:  Another amazing coincidence?  Glenn Beck and his Blaze Network don't just make videos,  they have an entire broadcast network, publish books, run a website, and do talk radio,  all of which opposes Barack Obama's policies.  So yeah, these guys all got their first IRS audits .  But that's not all.  Glenn Beck's top sponsor, GoldLine, was targeted by Democrats, specifically congressman Anthony Weiner, husband of Hillary's right hand person Huma Abedin, and a known political hit-man for Democrats and Obama.  Weiner resigned his House seat in scandal, but his wife will play a major role in a possible Clinton administration.

David Bossie and James Bopp:  These men were behind the aforementioned Citizens United SCOTUS case. David Bossie runs CU and James Bopp was the lawyer who defended the first amendment. The case centered around CU's right to make and show a film, in this case an unflattering portrait of Hillary Clinton. They won the case at the SCUTUS, but ran afoul of Obama and the entire Left who believe the first amendment only applies to Michael Moore and The New York Times. Hence, in front of the entire world, during a state of the union address, Barack Obama publicly berated the justices who upheld the first amendment rights of filmmakers, thus sending a message to justices, filmmakers, and supporters of people who make films: oppose me and I will use the Bully Pulpit to bully you.

No list like this would be complete without mentioning Obama's number one target in the media and film world - Fox News.  Fox has been singled-out and harassed personally by Barack Obama on numerous occasions.  These attacks send a clear and chilling message to sponsors:  Advertise on Fox and you will be the target of restrictive regulations, IRS audits, and federal harassment.   (Update: Fox just broke a record high for viewer ratings, and its founder Roger Ailes has been forced to resign after a sexual harassment lawsuit was filed against him.)

Are Democrats targeting certain filmmakers, or are these all just coincidences?  You decide...

Shawn Lucas, who made a viral video about serving a lawsuit against the DNC's Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Hillary Clinton, was found dead on August 2nd.   It is too early to know how or why he died.

Shawn Lucas is the third fourth mysterious death surrounding the DNC and the Clintons in four months. See here.

Alinsky vs. Alinsky

What would you think if your favorite football team had access to their opponent’s playbook but refused to study it?  I’m not talking about Bill Belichick stealing a playbook from the other side.  No, I’m talking about being handed it on a silver platter and still failing to read it, study it, or devise a strategy to defeat it.  That is exactly what has been happening in the last batch of presidential races lost by Republicans.

The playbook is called “Reveille for Radicals” and “Rules for Radicals”, a pair of books by the father of community organizing, Saul Alinsky.  Together they form a playbook laid out over forty-five years ago to “rub raw the sores of discontent” and mobilize a redistributive revolution.  It was the playbook followed by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama in their presidential runs.  It is now the playbook of Hillary Clinton in her run.

Obama taught Alinsky’s playbook as a community organizer and according to Michelle Obama herself, he quoted Alinsky on their first date.  More than anyone else in public life, Obama has employed the playbook diligently, and to great effect.  Hillary wrote her thesis on Alinsky, knew him, and carried on a correspondence with him.  She will likely do the same.  

For the last forty-five years this has been a one sided fight.  Republicans failed to understand the power of Alinsky’s model.  They failed to take the playbook seriously, failed to study it, and never developed a strategy to counter it.  Mitt Romney still doesn't understand what hit him in 2012.

Donald Trump brings that tradition to a grinding halt.  That’s not to say he has even read a single word Alinsky wrote.  He may not even know his name.  But Donald Trump is a natural born Alinskyite.  His own book, “The Art of the Deal”, is a kind of a businessman’s “Rules for Radicals”.  Trump's take-no-prisoners style and nice-guys-finish-last approach are right out of the Alinsky playbook.  Out of necessity and natural inclination, Trump has had to cut out the middleman and apply these tactics himself, which is a 180 degree departure from the normal politically correct Alinskyite approach.  Trump had neither time nor a willing community in the GOP to organize.   

The Democrats have never been in this position before.  They have never had to face a committed Alinskyite opponent.   Though Trump is self-taught in the art of “rubbing raw the sores of discontent”, using “ridicule as his most potent weapon” (That’s what all those stupid nicknames are about.), and all the other aspects of Alinskyism, he is rather effective.  The Left no longer has exclusive use of these divisive, dangerous, but highly effective tactics.  Payback is a bitch, and Trump is that bitch.         

That’s not to say Trump will waltz to victory based on the leveling of the Alinsky playing field.  The Left is still the dominant force in America today.  Demographics and nearly every lever of pop culture skew that way.  Media, academia, entertainers, actors, musicians, etc. all skew Left.  The most assigned economist at U.S. colleges is still Karl Marx, and it’s not even close.  Google, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter, with all their power to control information and opinion are all skewed Left.  The massive bureaucracies of government at the local, state, and federal level are all unionized, Leftist, and highly motivated.  

On the flip side, the counter-culture as personified by Donald Trump is diffuse, disorganized, and with nary a voice in pop culture.  It's going to be a lonely uphill battle for Donald Trump.   

But Donald Trump may actually know more Alinsky than he lets on.  Consider one of his final thoughts from his GOP convention speech:

“Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it.” 

This reminded me of a quote from “Rules for Radicals”:
“The organizer’s job is to inseminate an invitation for himself, to agitate, introduce ideas, get people pregnant with hope and a desire for change and to identify you as the person most qualified for this purpose.”

This election is shaping up to be a two-way Alinsky battle royale.   Buckle your seatbelts...

Dog Lives Matter

Had to put Rory down last week.  Despite what you may think about your own dog, Rory was the best dog ever.  Seriously.  Here's proof:
