2016: The Year the Americans Found out Our Elections Are Rigged

 

“Now it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors, and U.S. senators and congress members.” – Former President Jimmy Carter

(ANTIMEDIA) Denver, CO — The 2016 election has been a wild ride, with two insurgent grassroots campaigns literally giving the political establishment a run for its money. But as the events of this presidential primary season play out, it’s becoming clear the U.S. election — and even more so, the presidential race — is a big scam being perpetrated on the American people.

Events from the last week have exposed the system as an illusion of choice and a farce. They have reinforced at least one study showing the U.S. is an oligarchy rather than a democratic republic.

The Wyoming democratic caucus took place on Saturday, purportedly to allow voters to have their voices heard in the race between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Sanders lost the Wyoming caucus by winning it with a 12 percent margin.

Wait, what?

How does one lose by winning 56 percent of the votes? This happens when the political process is, according to the New York Post, “rigged” by superdelegates. The Post summed up this “strange” phenomenon:

“[U]nder the Democratic Party’s oddball delegate system, Sanders’ winning streak — he has won seven out of the past eight contests — counts for little.

“In fact, despite his win, he splits Wyoming’s 14 pledged delegates 7 to 7 under the caucus calculus.

“Clinton, meanwhile, also gets the state’s four superdelegates — who had already pledged their allegiance to her in January. So despite ‘losing,’ she triumphs 11-7 in the delegate tally.”

You've heard me say it time and time again since I started TBB.

The only vote that counts for you is on your local level.

 Your local level IS your country.

The national outcome is always predetermined. 

The house always wins. 



 

Hello? Critical thinking calling... Are we reaching?

Since TPTB have dropped any attempt at hiding it anymore it looks like some people are finally seeing what was plain as the nose on your face to some of us years ago.

I went to the NBC site and those sons of bitches have pulled the clip you referenced. They now have in it's place a clip from the same interview talking about the "gender inequality" Carter writes about in his latest book. I am sick to death of the traitor media hiding their shit-stained tracks like this. These bastards have got to go!
