MY CORNER by Boyd Cathey
Donna Brazile, Seth Rich and the REAL Scandal of the 2016 Presidential Election
First, let me take this opportunity to join millions of other Americans of faith to wish the Reverend Billy Graham a very happy and rewarding 99th birthday! The Reverend Graham was born in Charlotte on November 7, 1918—World War I had not ended, by four days. Woodrow Wilson was president; there were still hundreds of veterans of the War Between the States alive, and, even some veterans from the Mexican War! Most folks did not yet have automobiles, and the nation’s first radio station (KDKA, Pittsburgh) was two years away from going on the air…. Although I am not a Protestant, I appreciate Billy Graham’s significant role, the role he has played in America in defense of this nation’s Christian heritage, and I wish him a fulfilling 100th year: ad multos annos!
By now you probably have heard and seen former Hillary Clinton confidant/former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile (this past Sunday on ABC’s news/interview program) or, at least, heard and read about her new tell-all book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House. Like another, earlier bomb shell volume on the Clinton campaign, the book Shattered, Brazile’s volume reveals her role in the immense scandal involving the Democratic National Committee and its close and secret collaboration with and favoritism to Hillary Clinton during the 2015-2016 Democratic primaries. [http://trumptrainnews.com/articles/former-dnc-chair-drops-another-bombshell#ofbEzy1cTedJaQP0.99 ] But one segment of the book, in particular, has justifiably caught the attention of some acute observers. While none of the Mainstream Media outlets seem eager to report it, apparently after the murder of Democratic staffer, Seth Rich, under highly suspicious circumstances—a case that still remains basically unresolved—Brazile writes that she became deathly afraid that the same thing might happen to her. In fact, she began to close her blinds and curtains and upgraded her home security system!
Why would she do that? What did she fear? What did the Seth Rich murder indicate to her? And what does it illustrate about the Clinton machine and its willingness, perhaps, to use the ultimate payback to those who are considered risky or might reveal their deepest secrets?
Back on May 16 and May 27 of this year I passed on various items—[http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/05/16/seth-rich-slain-dnc-staffer-had-contact-with-wikileaks-say-multiple-sources.html ] and [http://www.unz.com/mwhitney/seth-rich-craig-murray-and-the-sinister-stewards-of-the-national-security-state/ ]—concerning the mysterious death of Seth Rich, a Bernie Sanders supporter who became so upset with the shenanigans and decidedly pro-Hillary slant of the DNC that apparently he was the mole who actually downloaded and passed on those damning Podesta/Hillary emails to Wikileaks (and NOT Russian hackers). At the time, the Mainstream Media, and even some on Fox, dismissed the very idea that Rich may have been killed for political reasons as some “far right fantasy” or “insane conspiracy thinking.”
Yet, his death is a crucial piece of this puzzle. Was his death another reminder of the profound ugliness and viciousness of the Clinton machine? [http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2017/08/03/seymour-hersh-debunked-russia-gate/] That machine and its history remain largely and studiously ignored by the Mainstream Media, which for decades have done their best to protect and shield the Clintons, from their earlier days in Little Rock, through the disreputable and scandalous Bill Clinton presidency, to the skullduggery of former FBI director James Comey to “protect” Hillary from indicated prosecution.
Donna Brazile is a loyal Democrat, by no means favorable to President Trump; yet if such a high-profile Democrat “insider” can now come clean and express real fear of—let us call it what it is—assassination, what does this tell us about the Washington Deep State “swamp” and about what they are actually capable of doing? And she, above almost all other ranking politicos, should know what goes on, shouldn’t she?
Today, then, I pass on a short item about Donna Brazile’s revelations, and I follow it with three articles on the Seth Rich murder. Can we connect the dots? Is this possible conspiracy not worthy of a specially-empaneled grand jury and vigorous investigation? I am not holding my breath with the Deep State still largely in charge of Washington DC. And I don’t expect the Senator Richard Burrs and Mark Warners, who suckle at the hind tits of the Deep State, to ever launch real investigations about real scandals that might imperil the power of the Establishment. They would rather follow along the false, put-up “trail” of Russian-Trump collusion.
Time to give them one-way Trailways bus tickets back home…at least the ones who won’t be doing time in Federal prison.
