Kizza Besigye Easter Message (14.04.2017)

Uganda: FDC Party Officially welcomes dialogue between the FDC and the NRM (31.03.2017)

Opinion: Dear Swedes stick to IKEA, please forget the talks between Museveni and Besigye!

I don’t know if I should laugh or cry, but what sort of discussion should be from people who gave us IKEA, Volvo and tiny meatballs. We know that the Swedish needs to prove their worth in the world on other venues, than the Eurovision and hair-styles of Zlatan Ibrahamovic. Still, the recent of willingly sending Pro Bono people to mediate between the long serving, self reliance and thief in chief, the National Resistance Movement wizard, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and the Opposition leader, creator of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Dr. Kizza Besigye are supposed to talk between cups of tea and biscuits provided with Swedish hospitality.

The Swedish Government has confirmed that it has been approached and, has accepted, to mediate planned talks between President Museveni and former presidential candidate, Dr Kizza Besigye” (…) “The government of Sweden is involved in supporting and promoting dialogue in many parts of the world, as part of its policy of conflict prevention and support to peace processes. Sweden has been asked to facilitate a possible dialogue in Uganda,” Swedish Foreign ministry spokeswoman Katarina Byrenius Roslund, noted in reply to email inquiries from this newspaper. The “discussions are still at an early stage”, she noted, adding: “When there is concrete progress to communicate, we will do so” (…) “Ms Annika Söder, the Swedish state secretary, has been agreed on by the principals as the mediator for the expected talks. She flew into the country last week and held separate back-to-back meetings with the President and Dr Besigye on Thursday and Friday, respectively, in what knowledgeable sources described as “exploratory” (Butagira, 2017).

First and foremost, can the Swedes explain the content of tear-gas into public meetings, police blocking, detaining of FDC Youths, falsified charges against the FDC leadership, the Public Order Management Bill who is created to stop meeting of anyone else, than the loyal men of Museveni. How can there be talks between the parties?

Secondly, when every travel and meeting of FDC and Besigye is met with heavy police force, blocking of main roads and tear-gas when they congregate. What is there to discuss? What perimeter of Kasangati he is allowed to leave before it is an issue? What sort of ideas do the Swedes have in mind, except selling Volvo and SAAB to Uganda, instead of Isuzu and Toyota!

Seriously, that the Government of Sweden must either be blind or ill-minded if they think this will give way. If they know the history of Nairobi Talks of 1980s. When the National Resistance Army and the other parties gathered to iron out the differences. Than that was used to forge more way for the NRA agenda and silence the others with guns and ammo. Not generate peace without knowledge of Museveni landing on top. So this is in his blood and the blood that is shed for him to gain all power.

Global IDP Database wrote this about his negotiations:

In July 1985, conflict between some Langi and Acholi soldiers led to the overthrow of the Obote regime. The coup, which brought General Tito Okello to power, shattered the military alliance between the Acholi and Langi and escalated ethnic violence. The Okello regime invited all fighting groups and political parties to join the military government. Every armed group and political party, with the exception of the NRA, joined the administration. The NRA, however, engaged the regime in protracted peace negotiations held in Nairobi. In December 1985, the Nairobi Agreement was signed under the chairmanship of President Moi of Kenya. However, the Agreement was never implemented and Museveni seized power on the 25th January 1986” (Global IDP Database, P: 18, 2004).

So will the Swedish buy into the mantra that everything can be reassembled and rebuilt? Since they want to forge a relationship between Besigye and Museveni. Museveni, who rather take up guns and get rid of opposition and vowed last year to destroy the opposition. Well, I am sure the Swedish we’re busy finding ways to export designer materials, than following the post-election dogma of Museveni. Since a man who only believes “he is the only man with a vision”. That is the man who is supposed to co-operate and negotiate with an advisory! Really?

A man who doesn’t want to talk about succession and doesn’t want to speak about his lingering in charge. A man who has run a country and nation since 1986, has nothing more to win or to gain by playing soft. If he does so and the Swedish is dumb enough to buy into the fake wood and think they get mahogany, than they will offer donor-funding and possible other prices for the so-called negotiations between the NRM and FDC. Even as the FDC Headquarter we’re a year ago a crime scene and many members and leaders we’re detained on manufactured charges.

There shouldn’t be these sort of talks at this point, if so, than the Swedish are legitimizing the thieving of Museveni and his NRM elite. Does the Swedish government want that on their plate? Is that the Swedish people’s prideful mission to support and trust in a corrupt and militarized government, while they at the same time is using Besigye as pawn?

The Swedish government, if they care should back-off, go home to Stockholm. Cut their aid and stop the talks. As they will only give more way to dictator and his clientele at the Okello House. There aren’t anything else to give.

Did the Swedish government do any research and care about the track-record of the Museveni regime? Have they seen how many mysterious deaths and men who has worked close who has either had to flee or been detained by his regime? Have the Swedish considered their implications in establishing legitimacy of the current leadership? Who doesn’t care if they bankrupt their country? While they are driving expensive cars on the State coffers?

Does the Swedish government need this win or this talks to gain international recognition, and not only sell IKEA furniture? Time to take the dozens pieces and assemble that the chairs in Umeå, and step away from Kampala.

Or do the Swedish government and their team no problem with losing their credibility for helping a fellow dictator? Peace.

Global IDP Database – ‘PROFILE OF INTERNAL DISPLACEMENT : UGANDA’ (17.06.2004)

Opinion: Besigye doesn’t need dialogue with Museveni!

Besigye 23.02.2016 Kasangati

Dr. Kizza Besigye and the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) do not need to have dialogue or negotiation with the National Resistance Movement (NRM) or the President himself. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni needs more the dialogue than the FDC and their party needs it. It is the NRM government and NRM regime who needs legitimacy and needs funds. That is proven with Civil Society Budget Advocacy Group (CSBAG) who proves with the 16 trillion shillings funds the for the 2017/2018 budget of the 30 trillion shillings needed. With this in mind there is certainly that the NRM needs more international support to fix missing funds.

That Museveni would need Besigye now a year after the General Election of 2016 shows how dire the situation is, the added debt and the troubling waters on the giant infrastructure projects, as much as the missing funds for the salaries or the other financial expenses that are occurring for the government. So the proof of issues is growing as the direct budget support has dwindled down as well as the elite and the cronies still expect to be fed by the regime.

Besigye has still a forged treason case, as much as Rwenzururu king Charles Wesley Mumbere has as well. The FDC headquarters was attacked and a crime-scene as the FDC Youth and FDC P10 was attacked as the defiance campaign was even banned by the Deputy Court Justice Stephen Kavuma. As well, the Police Force under IGP Kale Kayihura monitored and followed the leadership of FDC like they we’re criminal. There were many detained and house-arrested, there was more people hurt and hospitalized by state security organization. Also, the many inflicted and detained without warrants or court order shows the impunity of the state towards the FDC.

So after this impunity, after the illegal house-arrest of Besigye and the others who has been taken into prison without any justice served, why should the FDC try to sell their soul to the Movement? That is waste of time and waste of energy, it would be like the men who traded their political lives in Nairobi talks: “The NRA and the government signed a peace and power sharing agreement in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital Dec. 17 that called for an immediate cease-fire, the freezing of all troop movements and a half share of the ruling Military Council for the NRA” (…) “The provisions of the accord were largely ignored and both sides used the lull in the fighting to reposition and resupply their forces. The guerrillas claimed the military committed widespread human rights abuses after the accord was signed” (Charles Mitchell – ‘The National Resistance Army of rebel leader Yoweri Museveni…’ 26.01.1986 link: http://www.upi.com/Archives/1986/01/26/The-National-Resistance-Army-of-rebel-leader-Yoweri-Museveni/5549507099600/ ). So the agreement done by NRA in December 1985 wasn’t a big deal, so that Museveni could do a final sting and coup to gain power, which he has never left.

A negotiation with Museveni would only enforce his rule and his longevity in power nothing else. Besigye would not be offered anything substantial; his part in the matter would end in little or nothing. FDC would get the stick, but not get the price. Just like they wouldn’t feel a difference between now and then since the price of going into partnership would benefit Museveni. The Movement would get beneficiary funding and regard internationally since FDC has a higher standing abroad than Museveni.

M7 Guards Inaguration 2016

Museveni is well-known now because of his 7 terms and his position of executive since 1986. The reality of this that a negotiation or dialogue with Museveni at this stage is redundant, unless the President all of sudden turns his own self sideways. That he would go back on all his empty promises and all of his glory. Certainly Museveni could do so, but he knows that he has too many people on his consciences to leave it all behind. The President has eaten too much of the state coffers and cannot leave the bank-accounts behind. The family is too connected and has all the leverage in the state. The movement is built around him and if he fails than the party does as well.

The Movement and Museveni would not co-sign their powers or the authority, not after the rigging and the massive misuse of the state funds, therefore the lacking funds for the current budget. Museveni knows that his loyal friends abroad will not give in to his ways anymore, therefore hoping to play other cards. Use his political brain to suck other donors in. That while waiting for more oil-monies and also trade of other with making the UPDF to mercenary army in Equatorial Guinea or South Sudan if needed. This is because they need to get fresh funding for the State House, which hasn’t paid their payment-arrears to the owners of the Okello House!

So Besigye doesn’t need Museveni at this point, he needs his party and the loyalty of his supporters. That is more than Museveni has who needs to pay for loyalty and to secure funding for the movement itself. Therefore the jobs and funds to come steady, there is always more mouths to feed and more people to silence with brown envelopes. So Museveni needs foreign support and foreign aid as the Uganda Revenue Authority has just enough regulations and taxes to bring in funds that scrape the surface, but not fill the state coffers.

So again I say and I stand by it, Museveni is the only one earning political capital on negotiations and dialogue, nothing is really to be earned by the FDC or Besigye. So with this in mind, Museveni will only gain and Besigye will only lose on it. If you know you would lose, why give way to somebody who comes to take it all and deplete it all? Peace.

Opinion: The next steps for Besigye and continued defiance against the Movement!

OPM Press Release 05052016

It’s not easy to give words of advice to the men and woman who are in the line of fire. But we cannot let the Movement and their spin-control run the mill. They are stealing and thieving with massive speed and impunity. They are trying to avoid the weakness of the economy, trying to find new ways of revamping the economy without too much state debt and without loving donor direct aid. They still have the military and equipment served from loyal allies in the United States, if that will happen under Trump and it has happen under Bush/Obama is not easy to know; certainly U.S. will still let other brigades do the dirt they don’t want to do themselves.

The ones who toll with the problems are Dr. Kizza Besigye and his Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), they work for a peaceful transition in Uganda from the militarized politics of the President Museveni’s Movement. So with this in mind, after a year of issues, a year of tribulations, arrests, detained and charges of treason against the government; the political change is still in the wind. Besigye had deserved a better start and a fresher place as he is still monitored and still has Police following all movement done by the man. The same with his party who cannot hold meetings and public consultations without police taking stereo equipment, arrests or intimidation of citizens who shows up or just happen to be around.

Besigye had started the Campaign of Defiance under the Election Road Map for the General Election of 2016. So in 2015 it was started and has been put under fire from the Resistance Movement, an ironic problem for a draconian and tyrant regime who cannot really be democratic as they tries to silence or get rid of the worst opponents. Besigye is only kept because of known place and international scrutiny of they try to attack him too much.

FDC Besigye 05.04.2016

First Step – Defy with actions:

Besigye should continue and with more force, use more than just words and get the FDC to actually take a stronger stand against the ones that supports the regime. The Mafia regime or junta government, which he has described the Movement so many times. If FDC wants to be fair and wants to defy the Movement, they should suspend themselves first from Parliament. It is risky, but would be a grandeur position to take away the Shadow Government and the legitimacy of the current government.

TDA Kizza Besigye 261015

Second Step – Defy with dialogue with other opposition:

Secondly the FDC should be in talks with Democratic Party and other smaller parties that are not involved directly in the Movement regime, as they can try to weaken and strengthen the other voices. As Besigye have already done with his friendship with Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and Gen. David Sejusa. FDC needs to be connected with people of stature like Norbert Mao and others, who are real opposition to Museveni. Not talk to Jimmy Akena or others who just uses their parties as fronts of beacon of democracy, instead of actually challenging the Movement.

Kale Kayihura Choose Peace

Third Step – Defy the Courts like IGP Kayihura:

Just as IGP Kale Kayihura defied his own court-orders, the same should Besigye himself start to do in 2017, to show that he doesn’t respect the unlawful character of the regime; as the peaceful acts of showing up for treason charge that continue running into oblivion. Time to just say it is a kangaroo court and is only doing it to silence his voice. Therefore not showing up and instead continue to travel around the country to meet and greet party officials and locals to prove the value of building institution over being a sole candidate in Museveni and the NRM.

Times is a wasting, it’s hard to do stuff when you’re behind bars or at court, it’s hard to always move when the Police Force and other Security Organizations follow your every step.

NRM to Daily Monitor 09.02.2016

Fourth Step – Hurt the pocket of the Government:

Certainly the Defiance needs to be hurting the regime. Try to stop the foreign exchange rates, the taxation and the revenue of the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), even the business that is inter-connected with the Movement. As much as it should stop the state owned businesses that is being used by the Movement. Museveni would hate that he couldn’t misuse the profits of needed businesses, the ones that are owned by investors who are supplying him funds to pay Special Force Command and other militarized outfits that keeps him as the Executive.

If the Besigye and his folks stood behind and hurt the pocket and legitimacy, not in words only, but also actions that could move the regime and also create a vacuum that Museveni and his movement couldn’t control. The ripple effect and the true hurt would be shown. Especially with the knowledge, that the Election already hurt the economy with massive effect. So if they continue pounding on it took out the cash out of the Museveni owned banks and stopped profits to companies that the Museveni clan partly own. Than the Movement and family would feel the pinch.

Defying the state institutions and the government procedures, stop respecting the Police and Courts, stop listening to the draconian laws and also stop the funding of taxes and funds to directly keep the Movement alive. Something that would really hurt Museveni and his elite; this would really make it hard for the Movement to continue to use Police Force and use the state to gain wealth.

Besigye can continue to talk peaceful transition and I respect that. This sort of acts is not easy. They are hard and costly. Many will be arrested, many more detained, more torture and more innocent dying, but there been so much over 30 years that the defiance campaign has to take it to the next level. Show disrespect, let the government lose its value and show the world that the ones behind Besigye don’t see Museveni as their President. Museveni is just a citizen, not an Executive, as he wasn’t really elected to be so; he coup d’état again when he got sworn-in on the 12th May of 2016.

Time for acts, not talk, time for really defying the government and use the power of the people. Time to use the popularity and risk being harassed, as if you don’t than the Police will continue as they do; business as usual and also target the FDC as much as possible without it costing much for the illegitimate government it is. The illegal detained and the illegal arrests cannot be sustained, as much as the house arrests and unlawful behaviour of the Police towards the FDC is unbearable. This is not militant; it is fighting for a just cause. The real freedom and liberty, not to talk about a real legitimate government who represent the citizens of Uganda! Not a government representing Museveni and only his vision. Peace.

Out of the Box: The dirty tricks of the Hillary Clinton!

wikileaks-hillary

This is another batch of the leaks happening from WikiLeaks from the PodestaFiles. There been days upon days with new leaks that has happen all through October. Been hard to follow it all and the intelligence you can gather from it in the end, would be how a political machine and election procedures are happening for career politicians like Hillary Clinton. There been some scalps and misgivings in the leak.

Today is a brief spell into the Clinton Foundation first, secondly will be little about the surrogates of Clinton, third on Policy, fourth is on E-Mail Scandal and last Media. These are well-known territory, but I will let the leaks speak for themselves.

  1. On Clinton Foundation:

“Guys – Given the story yesterday about pay equity at the State Department, I wanted to flag something that came out of our research on pay equity at the Foundation. There are huge discrepancies, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they went here next. See a summary below from Karuna” [Ian Mandel to Tony Carrk and Robert Mook “Subject: Fwd: Equal Pay – Foundation” 24th February 2015].

Equal Pay problems in Clinton Foundation:

10 out of the 19 members (52%) of the Clinton Foundation’s Leadership Team, as listed on BHCCF’s website, are women, however only 3 out of the highest paid 11 employees (27%) are women.  The highest paid men average a salary of $294,157.50, while the highest paid women average a salary of $181,576.66, over $100,000 lower than the men. [Clinton Foundation Website, last accessed 12/10/14; Clinton Foundation 990, 2012; Clinton Foundation 990, 2013].

  1. Surrogates:

Use Howard Dean as Surrogate:

“Just watched him on Meet. At this time with Warren and Biden floating around he is the single best voice to speak about HRC as a surrogate. He is measured, thoughtful, talks substance not process, has run himself, the press likes him and he leans left. He was terrific this morning. I strongly suggest you get him out there more” [Gordon Griffin to John Podesta: “Subject: Howard Dean” on 05.08.2015].

Surrogate need advice:

“On April 8, I have gotten hoodwinked into doing Squawk Box on CNBC for 2 hours as a host. I may drag Al along with me. I know I will get tons of questions on the economy, the current fiscal situation, monetary policy, and of course why I’m supporting Hillary. I can’t just say I love her, although I might. What I would like to do is give some personal examples I have as to her effectiveness. But I will also need to comment on her fiscal plans and compare those to Bernie’s and whoever is left in the republican race at that time. Is it possible to get someone to send me some data and research so I can be as persuasive as possible, Thanks so much. Erskine” [Erskine sent to John Podesta on 7th March 2016].

ali-cenar

Turkish funding of DNC:

“John, heard this second hand but more than once. Seems Erdogan faction is making substantial investments in U.S. to counter opposition (CHP, Kurds, Gulenists etc.) outreach to policymakers and USG. Am told that the Erdogan crew also tries to make inroads via donations to Democratic candidates, including yours. Two names that you should be aware of are *Mehmet Celebi* and *Ali Cinar*. Happy to elaborate on the phone, provided you are not shopping at the liquor store” [Michael Werz sent to John Podesta “Subject: Flagging Turkish campaign donations” 19th August 2015].

  1. Policy:

On Cadillac tax:

Very few if any rank and file will be touched by $250K and above. I do think your point about them understanding its repeal is important…so if she says repeal, pauses and says I need some kind of pay for that still relieves this burden on the middle class and therefore folks making over $250K will take the hit…maybe the way to do it? Of course I understand she still has this decision to make” [Nikki Budzinski to Amanda Renteria “Subject: Re: Copy of HRC Memo on Cadillac Tax” on the 25th September 2015].

  1. E-Mail Scandal:

CNN: Email Scandal:

“Hey Nick, I’m writing a story about the formal request Chairman’s Gowdy office sent to David Kendall today asking that Sec. Clinton hand over her email server to the State Dept IG or another independent third party. I’d like to know whether the secretary plans to do so and if she has any response to the letter. I’m on deadline now” [Chris Frates sent to Nick Merrill “Subject: CNN deadline question” 20th March 2015].

Politico: Email Scandal.

One quick follow up– no fingerprints. As you said, there wasn’t a hell of a lot you guys could do after the Schmidt story — the emails were already deleted… etc. What action — OTR — did u advise. What were the decision points. Cheers/Thrush. Glenn Thrush” [Glenn Thrush to John Podesta “Subject: sorry to bother” 5th October 2015].

  1. Cozy relationship with Media:

Yahoo Interview:

“Well, I know you had a good weekend! We’ve been working with the campaign folks to reschedule my interview with Secretary Clinton. I wanted to write you about some of the metrics that we are getting and let you know through placement on Facebook we can guarantee 1.5 million views in addition to Yahoo engagement which has been close to 1 million for my political interviews. I’d also like to do a separate piece of business through social media along the lines of “10 things you don’t know about Hillary Clinton” that would showcase her personality and has a lot of viral potential. I know there is a lot of demands on her time, but we have been waiting patiently to schedule something and I’m sure we’ve been driving the campaign staff crazy, but the reach and engagement will be significant and I’m very much looking forward to having the opportunity to talk to her. I have been assured the campaign wants this as well. Can you help make this happen? I’d really appreciate your help” (Katie Couric to John Podesta “Subject: Re: Note from Katie Couric” 22nd February 2016).

monmoth-university

I hope you find these leaks interesting, because they say a lot about the activity and acts of the Clinton Campaign, the relationship they have and how the Democratic Party works. We can see how they together with all Surrogates, Media and others are working. This is important together with internal reports on the payment structure in Clinton Foundation proves the legitimate claims of following old-stereotype payment of men over woman. That deserves to be scrutinized, maybe be another man than me. I am sure that Hannity looks into as we speak (joking). Let’s be clear, this is another day with the same drama, as there aren’t as I’ve seen with today’s leaks many explosives inside the Clinton Campaign team. Still, interesting in the perspective of how they work on the inside. Maybe we will see next time for some more UFO’s and Bernie Sanders bashing Mails again? Peace.

New Leaks proves the Cozy Relationship between Clinton and the Media Part III

hillary-gif

There are now more evident that the Hillary Clinton Campaign has worked close with the media. As proven twice already on my page alone as the WikiLeaks continues to drop internal mails from Campaign Manager John Podesta. Even so the Trump Campaign is ailing so much these days that the Ailing Ailes has left the building. The Hillary Campaign can catch bugs like this and still fly-high. Says more about the completion than about Clinton and her team; this proves the extent of conspiracy and evident maladministration, that has extended to the cause of using any possible way to get good coverage in the media. Part of me say they didn’t need to do this as the Trump Campaign has been flawed and faltered because of Trump’s acts and words. Therefore the leaks of WikiLeaks, proves the problems with Clinton, but that is still small-fry compared to the king-pin of lies and malicious vicious corrupt activity Mr. Trump.

So here take a look at the interesting ones from Today and Yesterday.

Politico asking for ques:

“I’m finishing up and WJC/priorities story and your name keeps popping up  got 5 mins for an ptr chat?  Cheers/Thrush” (Glenn Thrush to John Podesta – ‘howdy’ 29.06.2015).

MSNBC Chris Dodd wanting to help:

I’m doing MSNBC and Bloomberg tomorrow morning. I’d like to help Hillary out on this financial reform stuff. I’d like to debunk the notion that just because she’s gotten contributions from Wall Street, that she doesn’t care about the issues. Want to be factual about where she’s been and how she’s been supportive. I know the rhetoric but would like to know some specific facts. If not you, can someone get back to me? Sorry to reach out so late” (Eryn Sepp sending mail to John Podesta – ‘Cell Vmails — One Timely from Chris Dodd’ 21.07.2015).

qtip-blm

Hillary Clinton working with Q-Tip:

Q-Tip who is an ambassador member of Harry Belafonte’s Sankofa.org has long been highly committed to issues of social justice. Q-Tip is devoted to amplifying the voices of the disenfranchised in an effort to promote justice, peace and equal rights for all. He is a big supporter of the work Mrs. Clinton has done throughout her career and has also worked alongside former president Bill Clinton at a 2003 DNC fundraiser. He even served as DJ for Chelsea Clinton’s 25th birthday party in 2005. He’s had a lasting track record with the Clinton’s throughout the years. In fact, he had hoped to see Mrs. Clinton at his close friend Tory Burch’s fundraiser tomorrow in The Hamptons. However, due to a prior commitment in Los Angeles, he will be not be able to make it” (From Betsy Jones – Q-Tip Assistance to John Podesta: ‘Meeting request with Hillary Clinton’ 29.08.2015).

CNBC planning interview with HRC:

“All I can say about message below is: –HRC doesn’t like bullshit coverage of hyped-up controversies –She does like serious substantive policy conversations –her number one issue is making American families better off in this economy –I don’t do bullshit coverage, I focus on the economy, and I can conduct a serious substantive conversation about that with her better than anybody else on platforms that matter. Please let me know anything I can do to make this interview happen, if not in December then in January” (John Harwood to John Podesta – ‘FW: Are you back?’ 02.12.2015).

Funding from Unions to the Super-Pac Hillary Victory Fund:

Others unions that have maxed out to HVF over this past week, with checks coming in… AFSCME ($130k) LIUNA ($165k) Operating Engineers ($150k) IUPAT ($100k) Bricklayers ($100k) Machinists ($50k. More then anytime before)  Just a FYI.  Working with Mike on a few others (AFT and UA) before end of year” (Nikki Budzinski to Robby Mook – ‘Re: Follow-up’ 19.12.2015).

On Ted Cruz of the GOP:

“Donald Trump says that, if the Republicans nominate Cruz, “the Democrats” will file a lawsuit challenging Cruz’ eligibility. DSW — or, more ambitiously, DSW, Clinton, Sanders and O’Malley — should issue a statement saying that, If Cruz is nominated, the Democratic Party will not challenge his eligibility and that the voters should reject him because of his views and record, not his birthplace” (Donna Brazile to John Podesta – ‘Re: A thought’ 30.01.2016).

Millennials and Clinton:

“You likely saw Nancy Pelosi’s comments praising Sen Sanders for bringing millennials into the political process and saying they only wanted fairness and opportunity. I think this is the perfect tone to take with these voters. I have been dismayed in the last few weeks to see both Pres and Sec Clinton talk about these voters as wanting impossible things, or as Mitt Romney might say, free things. I do ‘t see how this language helps at all. Sec Clinton does not need millennials to win the nomination. She may need them to win the election. They should be embraced” (From Catholics Alliance’s Fred to John Podesta – ‘Re: John’ 26.02.2016).

If that weren’t interesting read, than I don’t know what will entice your mind. Peace.
