Unsolved Murder among Democrat Party Ranks

Was Seth Rich Killed over the Steele Dossier?

If we are to believe the transcript of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, released unexpectedly by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the search for a smoking gun in the dossier scandal may lead us to a dead body, at least according to Simpson’s lawyer:
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in August 2017, Glenn Simpson was questioned about whether he tried to “assess the credibility” of sources behind information uncovered by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who compiled the dossier.
“Yes, but I’m not going to get into sourcing information,” Simpson said.
Asked again what “steps he took to verify their credibility,” Simpson declined to answer.
His lawyer, Joshua Levy, then intervened and said Simpson was just trying to protect his sources.
“Somebody’s already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work,” Levy said.
The interview didn’t pursue the line of questioning further.
Well, maybe somebody should pursue this hand grenade tossed in the middle of the room.  Whoa!  Somebody’s already been killed as the result of the dossier put together by former British spy Christopher Steele from questionable Russian sources and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, and possibly used by the FBI to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the campaign of Hillary’s opponent, Donald J. Trump?
As shocking as this revelation may be, it dovetails nicely with fear expressed for her safety by former DNC chair Donna Brazile.  In a stunning interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos about her new book, Hacks, Brazile made cryptic references to murdered DNC I.T. staffer Seth Rich and revealed that afterward, she took the precautions one takes when one fears for his life.
So far, speculation about the unsolved murder of Seth Rich have been dismissed as right-wing conspiracy theories, but Brazile’s references to him in the light of all that has come out about WikiLeaks, the Fusion GPS dossier, and Hillary’s purchase of the DNC that rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders may be a missing piece of this whole puzzle.
We have the unsolved murder of a former DNC staffer, Seth Rich; a former DNC chair who feared for her life; and a statement by the lawyer for the founder of Fusion GPS suggesting that someone has been killed over the dossier.  Would it be too much to connect those dots?
Brazile, according to Newsweek, in a piece titled “DNC’s Donna Brazile Dedicated Her Book to ‘Patriot’ Seth Rich, Whose Death Made Her Fear for Own Life,” dedicated her book in part to Rich:
A new book by Donna Brazile, the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has been making headlines for its controversial claims about the 2016 presidential election and the Hillary Clinton campaign.  But the provocative points start even before the first chapter, as Brazile reportedly dedicated the book in part to Seth Rich, the DNC staffer whose murder launched a conspiracy theory.
Axios reported on Sunday that the book’s dedication reads, “In loving memory of my father, Lionel Brazile[,] Sr.; my beloved sister, Sheila Brazioutlanle; my fearless uncles Nat, Floyd, and Douglas; Harlem’s finest, my aunt Lucille; my friend and mentor, David Kaufmann; my DNC colleague and patriot, Seth Rich; and my beloved Pomeranian, Chip Joshua Marvin Brazile (Booty Wipes).  I miss y’all.” … Rich appears elsewhere in Brazile’s book, as the Post [italics here and elsewhere removed –ed.reported earlier in the weekend.  She wrote that Rich’s murder haunted her and that she’d installed surveillance cameras at her home and would keep the blinds in her office window closed so she could not be seen by snipers, according to the Post.  Brazile talked about Rich on ABC News’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.  She told the host about her critics: “They don’t know what it was like to be over the DNC during this hacking.  They don’t know what it’s like to bury a child.  I did: Seth Rich.”
Why did Donna Brazile fear for her life after Seth’s Rich unsolved murder?  Were these cryptic references a way of warning those who she feared might do her harm that more would be revealed after her possible demise?  Only Donna Brazile can elaborate, and it is doubtful she will at this point.
Rich’s murder remains a mystery, with no apparent motive – not even a robbery gone wrong.  As the Daily Caller  Investigative Group observes in a piecetitled “Donna Brazile Has a Theory about Who Killed Seth Rich”:
From her book []Hacks[] [italics added –ed.]:
I felt some responsibility for Seth Rich’s death. I didn’t bring him into the DNC, but I helped keep him there working on voting rights.  With all I knew now about the Russians’ hacking, I could not help but wonder if they had played some part in his unsolved murder.  Besides that, racial tensions were high that summer and I worried that he was murdered for being white on the wrong side of town.  [My friend] Elaine expressed her doubts about that, and I heard her.  The FBI said that they did not see any Russian fingerprints there.
Brazile repeatedly returns to the subject of being haunted by Rich’s murder, even though other Democrats have pounced on anyone who suggested that the murder was anything other than a robbery gone wrong.  The DNC data staffer was killed days before Wiki[L]eaks began publishing its emails, and his valuables were not taken.
The Russians did not provide WikiLeaks with any purloined emails or other documents,  according to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.  As Fox News reported on Assange’s interview with Sean Hannity:
Wiki[L]eaks founder Julian Assange denied Thursday that hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta were stolen and passed to his organization by Russian state actors.
“Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told []The Sean Hannity Show [italics added –ed.].[]
“So in other words, let me be clear,” Hannity asked, “Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?”
“That’s correct,” Assange responded.
Seth Rich, being a DNC I.T. staffer, if he did not provide the documents and emails to WikiLeaks himself, might have been in a position to know who did and how.  We do know that the DNC denied the FBI access to the server that was allegedly hacked by the Russians.  Now we have a possible link among Seth Rich, his death, and a dossier paid for in part by the DNC.
The Democratic National Committee “rebuffed” a request from the FBI to examine its computer services after it was allegedly hacked by Russia during the 2016 election, a senior law enforcement official told CNN Thursday.
“The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed until well after the initial compromise had been mitigated,” a senior law enforcement official told CNN.
Perhaps Donna Brazile and Glenn Simpson know more about what the DNC was trying to hide from the FBI.  Her shocking revelations in her book and the statement by Simpson’s lawyer may be the tip of a rather large and unnerving iceberg.

Weren’t the Democrats Charming Brats During State of Union Evening!!!

The Shabby, Sophomoric Behavior of Democrats at the SOTU

by Patricia McCarthy  at American Thinker:

“It is difficult to imagine a more galling demonstration of incivility than the Democrats in the room for Trump’s SOTU speech. They scowled, frowned, and sat on their hands throughout the speech. They could hardly be bothered to acknowledge the heroes in the audience when they were introduced. While the Dems brought illegal immigrants, Trump invited actual paragons of American character and the families of victims of illegal immigrant crimes, as well as a victim of North Korea. It was embarrassing, like watching the anti-Semites in the UN stomp out of the room when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks. How is it any different? Our Democrats behave exactly like the most racist, intolerant people on the planet, and in their own Capitol.

The Democrats loathe the tax reform that has kick-started the American economy. They abhor the return of American manufacturing and the bonuses so many companies have doled out to their employees. It was not so long ago that Obama essentially swore that “those jobs are never coming back.” “Crumbs,” billionaire Pelosi called their bonuses. The left today hates our military. They hate the notion of national security. Like Obama, they cannot abide the unfair advantage, as they see it, of American might, American success, and American freedom which they are always trying to impede, to restrict, to regulate and tax. The left has been doing its best to turn the United States into Venezuela for two generations. Progressivism is socialism. Venezuela is how it ends.

How and why have the leftists among us become so anti-American, so contemptuous of the Constitution, the Founders, and American heroism? When did they get to be so rude? They hate Trump so much they have regressed to being playground bullies, a gang of horrid little toddlers. They seem to have one issue and one issue only, the prioritization of illegal immigrants. That’s all they’ve got and for some reason they think it is a winning issue, that it will drive their base to take back the House and maybe even the Senate this year. They are so blinded by the light of their own self-regard they think that is a turnout cause for most Americans who are suffering under the onslaught of illegals in their communities. Congressman Tim Ryan, a Democrat from Ohio, kept an empty seat to honor a deported illegal from his district, a district in which many thousands have died from opioid overdose. Tucker Carlson asked him why he would want to make his defense of illegals a cause and not the deaths of so many Americans. He did not have a satisfactory answer. But this much is clear: the Democratic Party is today the party of illegal immigrants. That is their core constituency, that is who they represent over and above Americans.

It was truly shocking for all to see how disrespectful were the Democrats in attendance. Do they think their bad manners will endear them to the American people, most of whom have been taught basic manners and probably agree with nearly every word Trump spoke tonight? Do they think that refusing to stand for the heroes and victims Trump profiled will win over new voters? The parents of two African-American girls killed by MS-13 gang thugs were present and Trump recognized them. The Democrats would not even stand for them! The members of the Black Caucus in attendance did not even stand when Trump touted the “lowest black unemployment ever recorded.” They cannot even celebrate good news for their own people who suffered terribly under Obama. These elected representatives lack the basics of common sense if they think this kind of scorn will win over voters.

High taxes, redistribution of wealth, open borders, the erasure of gender, the primacy of skin color, the dumbing-down of education across the board: these are the policies the Democrats promote. This is why they are desperate for illegal immigration, amnesty for millions, and chain migration. They cannot remain in power if they do not massively increase the dependent class they themselves created by design. It goes without saying that many of these immigrants are hardworking, fine people who are assets to our civil society, but many thousands of them are not. The criminal element among them is too much to bear. That is why legal immigration and immigration laws exist!”        (There’s more below!)
