Donna Brazile was noticeably uncomfortable for every second of the following 10-minute interview with Megyn Kelly of Fox News. Kelly pushed hard on the recent Project Veritas undercover videos showing DNC operatives plotting to incite violence at Trump rallies and commit massive voter fraud and over Brazile's leaked email showing that she provided a CNN debate question to Hillary ahead of a March 2016 debate with Bernie. Brazile tried every trick in the book to deflect and pivot but Kelly held her feet to the fire.
Brazile's response on the Project Veritas videos were mostly nonsensical though she did summon the typical democrat argument that O'Keefe is a criminal and has a history of doctoring videos. But the real fireworks came when she was pressed on her leaked email revealing that she shared a debate question with Hillary in advance of a debate.
"I did not receive any questions from CNN, let's just be very clear."
"First of all what information are you providing to me that will let me see what you are talking about?"
"As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false."
"Podesta's emails were stolen. You're like the thief that wants to bring into the night what you found in the gutter."
"I am not going to try to validate falsified information. I have my documents, I have my files."
Because Donna seems to be afflicted with the same disease that haunted Hillary during her tenure as Secretary of State, an awful condition the causes the ...
Donald Trump opened up a Thursday campaign rally in Delaware, Ohio touching on the most sensitive topic from last night: by saying he'll accept the results of the presidential election... as long as he wins.
"I will totally accept the result of this great and historic presidential election," Trump told supporters in Delaware, Ohio.
He then paused dramatically.
"If I win."
The crowd went wild.... because the trolling must go on?

As we explain in Splitting Pennies, the world isn't as it is presented to us in textbooks, and on television. But as is often with the case of the Elite's black humor- they tell us how they are going to torture us as they are doing it. In a related example, the CIA tortured Muslims by playing the Barney "I Love You" song for hours and hours. Now, the joke is on us - the voters. They are laughing at us, that people still believe in 'democracy' that America has "Democracy" - one point here to end this argument. America is a Repulic, not a democracy. In a democracy, such as they have in Europe and in many states like California, voters vote on issues such as the legalization of Marijuana, abortion, and other issues. We do not use that system, America is a Federal Republic, where we elect representatives who 'represent' us in Washington (or, that's the idea - in reality it doesn't work that way anymore). Just search for the word 'democracy' on the official page explaining the Federal system of government, and you'll only see references to New England towns.
Anyway, we're now all actors (extras, and unpaid) in one of Hollywood's greatest productions, the US Presidential Election. And it's the biggest of them all. There's been a strong connection between Hollywood and Washington since World War 2. Hollywood helped sell the war, showing Propaganda films for free sometimes before a Matinee and other times all day long. This allowed Hollywood special 'gifts' and 'incentives' - leading to the agreement that one day, they'll make one of their own a US President - Ronald Reagan. How could a system based on lies, appearances, propoganda, and social control mechanisms have any better leader than an actor ...
