Inevitability: Finding WPMs in Iraq and Obama as the DNC Nominee
Perhaps the meaning of inevitability should be couched in a post 9-11 definition. Inevitability redefined means “because the Press and the Political Elite make it so.” Inevitable is no longer due to ANY underlying facts. We are no longer in a one person one vote world. It is time to tell the DNC to stop its War on Democracy.
The Denver Group and its founders Heidi Li Feldman and Marc Rubin remind me of the early roots of Move-on and the few voices against the Iraq War I could find when I was trying to find a way to join a movement to prevent that war. There were a few voices in the wilderness speaking truth, but the press and politicos were playing up the Slam Dunk of finding WMD in Iran like the second coming. They even had up to 65% of the population believing that Saddam Hussein was behind the 9/11 attacks. I can remember sitting in a restaurant discussing the inanity of any war in Iraq and being yelled at by many folks from the surrounding tables as being an unpatriotic peacenik. No amount of reason could stop the race towards this unnecessary war. The Press and the Politicos wanted it.
Now, with so many realizing the truth, I can hardly believe we see the same tactics in play to anoint a DNC general election candidate based on lies and back room manipulations hidden from the general public. Not only are they in play, they APPEAR TO BE WORKING! Is the ordinary American really that stupid? We now have some folks working hard to play up the Slam Dunk claim that is Obama as Democratic Party Nominee. Just as then Secretary of State Colin Powell was sent to the United Nations with phony evidence debunked by many within the CIA, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Howard Dean are touting the inevitability of a unified party and an Obama ascendancy by stacking the deck against reality and the truth.
Are you willing to let that happen?
I know Heidi and I’ve read Marc’s blog since its inception. I suggest you check out my links to Tom in Paine or Heidi Li’s Potpourri in the side bar. You can also get a great interview with them at this thread on No Quarter: http://noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/07/03/breaking-nq-radio-interview-the-denver-group/ . They are looking to make the DNC accountable for their actions during this primary season.
From their site:
Insuring that Senator Clinton’s name is on the ballot requires sending a message to Howard Dean,the DNC and the country at large that the Democratic Party is playing with fire to even consider subverting democratic principles by removing her name and having anything less than an open honest convention.It also sends the message that the false sense of party unity that’s being promoted by the Democratic Party and willingly repeated by the news media is just that — false.
There are many factors conspiring to try and keep Senator Clinton’s name off the ballot not the least of which is the fear by some that, given the events of the last few weeks, she could actually win.
At a dinner with Clinton donors two weeks ago, Senator Obama was asked if he supported Senator Clintons name on the ballot. His answer was that he wasn’t there to negotiate the convention. We think its fair to say that if Senator Obama has his way her name wont be on the ballot and he will use all his influence with the DNC to accomplish that. A mass media approach is a very public way of pushing back and letting the DNC know there’s another side watching and there will be dire consequences if that happens.
I’m still appalled by the complete lack of truthfulness and democracy that occurred during this primary season that may eventually lead us into a War Against Democracy in the same way we were led to a War Against Iraq under the guise of lies. Take a real look at some of the things that are going on.
There has been a concerted effort to flip every Clinton delegate, pledged or otherwise, to Obama to remove the possibility of Obama being upstaged at the convention. You see, no one is the nominee at the convention until one of the candidates receives the magic number of delegates. That is why Obama is strong-arming anyone that continues to stick with Hillary.
Some Positive Steps to Support a Great WomanPosted: June 27, 2008 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: Denver Group, Heidi Li, Hillary in Denver, Independence Day for Hillary, Marc Rubin, Pay Off Hillary's Debt Comments Off on Some Positive Steps to Support a Great Woman
There are several things going on with Hillary’s campaign that I’d like to highlight this morning. A lot of the credit for this goes to my friend Heidi Li who has been endless in her support of Hillary’s candidacy. First, let me show you this great Youtube made by my friend GeekLove. After you see it I’d like to encourage you to help Hillary pay off her debt. You’ll reach Heidi’s site if you click on the pretty Hillary Poster in the sidebar.
I’d like to encourage you this Independence Day to help Hillary become independent. She’s asking not for money to pay off the millions of dollars she’s donated to her campaign, but for money to pay the remaining bills to vendors. She kept her promise to us and I’d just like to encourage you to support her hard work and commitment to us.
The second item is for a project started by Heidi and Marc Rubin (great blogger of Tom in Paine). It is called the Denver Project. It’s purpose is to ensure that the continued DNC dirty tricks against Hillary don’t continue into the Denver Convention.
This is the link to this very good site:
The Denver Group has been formed to insure that the Democratic National Committee respect and carry out the democratic process at the convention in Denver this August by meeting certain specific goals. We will be advocating, and if neccessary pressuring, through purchased mass media as well other accepted avenues, the Democratic National Committee to see to it that these goals and the interests of tens of millions of Democratic voters are met.
Our goals are:
An open convention.
Senator Clinton’s name on the ballot
Speeches allowed by supporters of Senator Clinton on
behalf of her candidacy.
A roll call vote.
Our email address: The Denvergroup@Gmail.com
