The unlimited spending that fuels the Democratic party is disguised as social justice. The truth is that there is no social or justice in it. The national party is nothing more than Tammany Hall writ large, a vast political machine that spends trillions on political favors in direct spending and indirect subsidies. And in a year when black unemployment is at a record high, and a black man in the White House has absolutely failed to help the black community– the danger of that community waking up and realizing that they have been played for half a century is very real.
Let’s examine the truth about Sheila Jackson Lee’s rise to power. Jackson Lee’s place in congress was bought for her by Enron, which funneled money to her campaign in order to push out her predecessor who had opposed NAFTA. Jackson Lee had no problem being employed by a corrupt company to force out a black congressman and force through legislation that would cost countless American jobs.
How many of Sheila Jackson Lee’s constituents lost their jobs because of NAFTA? That’s a question they ought to be asking themselves. Because Jackson Lee, like so many of her colleagues of every race, are not representatives of the black community or of women. They represent corrupt political interests in blackface.
Enron is done, but AT&T isn’t. And AT&T has poured money into Sheila Jackson Lee’s campaign chest and cut six figure checks to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and the Congressional Black Caucus Political Education and Leadership Institute. In return the CBC endorsed the AT&T and T-Mobile merger, along with the Communications Workers of America, which is also a Jackson Lee donor. An added bonus to the merger will be AT&T’s unionization of T-Mobile’s workforce, with the dues kicked back to the campaigns of Democratic politicians. The merger will mean fewer jobs, but more union jobs. And that’s the only metric that Democratic politicians care about, because it means more money for them.
This is the emperor and empress without their clothes. The true face of the Democratic party behind the spin. And this everyday corruption is what their social justice image exists to protect.
Now the DCCC is fundraising for an opponent for West. Who will the lucky lady—and it’s likely to be a lady–be? Most likely Lois Frankel, who presided over West Palm Beach’s notorious corruption. The DCCC is trying to do is replace an African-American war hero with a corrupt member of the Democratic party establishment. Because AT&T mergers don’t approve themselves.
The story here is an old one. Money and power. The Democrats have spent the Federal well dry but they can’t stop digging because it is the source of their political power. And they can’t let go of the race card because it is the source of their electoral power.
