Wednesday: Have Democrats Finished Stealing Iowa From Bernie Sanders Yet?

Posted on | February 5, 2020 | No Comments

 

Keep in mind that Bernie Sanders’ campaign had people in every precinct caucus in Iowa whose job was to get the voting numbers, so that when the state party HQ bungled the count Monday, the Sanders campaign was able to release its own tally, showing that Bernie had won. According to their numbers, Bernie got 29.66% of the final vote, and Pete Buttigieg was second with 24.59%; in the raw vote total, Bernie won by a margin of 4,012 out of 79,162 votes cast. But for some reason — perhaps massive fraud — the official Iowa Democrat count still has only 86% of precincts reporting and it’s Wednesday f***ing night!

Gosh, I wonder how this happened?

The app that was supposed to help the Iowa Democratic Party quickly report Monday’s caucus results – but contributed to confusion and a muddled result as campaigns were in an uproar – is linked to Hillary Clinton campaign veterans.
Shadow, a tech firm that describes itself as a group that creates “a permanent advantage for progressive campaigns and causes through technology,” is the company that created the Iowa Democratic Party’s app, according to The New York Times. At least the COO, CEO, CTO and a senior product manager at Shadow all worked for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, according to LinkedIn profiles.
Shadow is associated with ACRONYM, a nonprofit dedicated to “advancing progressive causes through innovative communications, advertising and organizing programs.” . . .
Groundbase co-founders Krista Davis, who is the current Shadow CTO, and Gerard Niemira, who is the current Shadow CEO, both held senior positions with the Clinton campaign. . . .
ACRONYM also has picked up funding from at least one dark money group. The New Venture Fund gave ACRONYM $250,000 in 2018 and is one of a number of nonprofit groups controlled by Arabella Advisors — a Washington-based philanthropy company. Both Araballa and New Venture Fund were founded by Eric Kessler, who worked in President Bill Clinton’s administration.

Let me get this straight: Clinton staffers, with funding from a “dark money group,” created the software that failed on Monday in Iowa, thus cheating Bernie Sanders out of a victory? Coincidence?

But wait — there’s more:

Acronym, the dark-money group behind the mobile app that derailed the news cycle by causing widespread delays in the Iowa caucus results, received funding from the political operations of Tom Steyer and Speaker of the House [Speaker] Nancy Pelosi, financial records reveal. . . .
Acronym’s nonprofit arm—which does not disclose its funders—received $300,000 in donations in 2018 from the House Majority PAC, a Pelosi-affiliated committee that works to elect Democrats to the House of Representatives. That same year, Federal Election Commission records show, Steyer’s NextGen Climate Action Committee made a $45,000 donation to the nonprofit and paid another $90,000 for its data consulting services. . . .
Acronym’s PAC, Pacronym, was also a major beneficiary of wealthy Democrats’ funding. The committee received six-figure contributions from director Steven Spielberg, former actress Kate Capshaw, and liberal billionaire George Soros’s Democracy PAC in late 2019.

This is not a conspiracy theory, because they’re doing this in broad daylight. If you wanted to create software to perpetrate fraud against the Sanders campaign, who else would you have hired? Wait a minute, I think we just got video from Iowa Democratic Party headquarters . . .
