Wall Street Democrats, such as Wall Street-owned president’s Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, as well as Wall Street’s senator’s Hillary Rodham Clinton and Ron Wyden, have led the way toward trade deals that have exported tens of millions of US jobs overseas, with the difference between the old higher US paying jobs and the new lower paying US jobs going directly into the pockets of the rich via higher corporate earnings, rising share prices and surging dividends.

These income redistribution scams are the primary reason income and wealth inequality have grown so lopsided in favor of the billionaires over the previous 35 years or so. Most of the Republican Party have stood right behind the Clinton’s, Wyden and Obama on these income redistribution scams. 86 percent of Republican voters understand these trade scams are intended to export US jobs, compared to 52 percent of Democratic voters. So the Republican leadership is happy to negotiate with the Wall Street DNC Democrats to take the lead on these trade scams. In fact, the two sides have worked together to create the income and wealth inequality in which we now suffer. That’s why Donald Trump is president.

So how do the Democrats get out of being blamed for exporting tens of millions of jobs and creating such massive income and wealth inequality? They lie and spread these lies using a number of corporate news outlets and fake academic studies that come from real universities.

When Barack Obama became president, and for a few years afterward, the US failed to create any net jobs. And so members of the Democratic Party came up with the ingenious lie; automation killed the jobs. Since then the economy has created twelve million new jobs, and you will notice automation hasn’t killed those jobs. Nor has automation killed the tens of millions of US jobs that have been exported to China, Vietnam, Mexico and elsewhere.

I’ve written about this Democratic Party lie many times.

Now in a new report, economists Lawrence Mishel and Josh Bivens of the Economic Policy Institute challenge the Democratic Party lie that the pace of automation is accelerating and that the use of robots will lead to much higher unemployment and greater inequality. They also point out that there is not one shred of evidence in any study showing that technology and automation are killing more jobs than they are creating. The authors argue that if automation actually led to higher overall joblessness, the United States would have seen consistently increasing unemployment over the last 70 years. That didn’t happen because technology and its offshoot called automation actually create more jobs than they displace.

Likewise, if automation were indeed surging and leading to joblessness in recent years, we would not have been able to reduce the unemployment rate from 10 percent in 2010 to under 4.3 percent now. The authors encourage policymakers to focus on the immediate need to create good jobs and robust wage growth—instead of getting worked up about a hypothetical “robot apocalypse.”

The imbalance of political power between the 1 and the 99 percent are the current reason why income and wealth inequality has grown over the last 3 1/2 decades.

On April 28 a “transcript was released from the most recent hearing at a federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on the lawsuit filed on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters against the Democratic National Committee and former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for rigging the Democratic primaries for Hillary Clinton. Lawyers for the DNC argued the DNC has a right to pick candidates in a back room.

The corporate press is doing its best to ignore this class action lawsuit alleging the Democratic National Committee (DNC) worked directly in conjunction with Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign to keep Bernie Sanders out of the White House. This lawsuit has been raging on in the courtrooms for months on end–and yet, most people have no idea of its existence, in large part thanks to the corporate media’s total lack of coverage.

The lawsuit alleges the Democratic National Committee, which is managed by Wall Street toadies who fear Bernie Sanders, worked side-by-side with the Hillary Clinton campaign to derail the Sanders challenge last year in the Democratic presidential primary. If true this violated the Democratic Party’s own charter, specifically Article 5, Section 4, which specifically states the DNC cannot work with a “single campaign to effectively choose who would win the Democratic ballot, the attorneys stated in the suit.”

According to Newsweek, “The most recent court hearing on the case was held on April 25, during which the DNC reportedly argued that the organization’s neutrality among Democratic campaigns during the primaries was merely a “political promise,” and therefore it had no legal obligations to remain impartial throughout the process.”

In other words, the DNC is admitting guilt while insisting it did no wrong in directly supporting Wall Street’s choice to be the Democratic Party candidate for US president because they certainly didn’t want the people’s candidate

On Friday July 22, Wikileaks released leaked emails showing how the Wall Street Democratic National Convention attempted to discredit and lie about the presidential candidacy of Bernie Sanders.

DNC Chairperson Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, a tried and true patriot of Wall Street, announced today that she is stepping down as DNC Chair, no doubt because the emails made it all too obvious that she and the Democratic Party leadership are political pawns of Wall Street investment banks, at least as much as their
Republican Party counterparts; and that they did every thing in their power to derail the Sanders campaign, while doing everything they could to bolster the presidential ambitions of Wall Street presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The emails made what was obvious a little more clear; the political game was rigged against the candidate of the people, Bernie Sanders. Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced today that Wasserman-Schultz will not be allowed to speak at the Democratic National Convention today. Perhaps it’s likely Bernie Sanders and his supporters insisted on this under certain favorable conditions.

Needless to say, Clinton defeated Sanders partly due to the shenanigans of the DNC and massive voter fraud.
