The mainstream media, predictably, has taken the focus off of Sanders following his narrow victory in New Hampshire to focus on the relative position of the candidates that came in second, third, and fourth. This takes the spotlight off of the election rigging that happened in the granite state exactly where and how The Mockingbird predicted it would happen on Monday February 10th in this article where we examined the obvious and long standing security flaws in tabulation equipment.

Buttigieg Complaints Force Iowa Recount as Sanders Surges Despite Widespread Proof of Tampering in Buttigieg's Favor
No American election tampering would be complete without racism. It appears that in one of the whitest states in the union, non-white votes for a candidate outside the establishment were counted last, and when those votes proved to be decisive to the outcome of the contest, the vote counting was stopped and taken even further into the backroom
The Des Moines Register is THE newspaper of Iowa. Because Iowa is the first to vote in the primary season, polls and endorsements from this paper have been seen as the most important. Iowa wins build momentum. This year, there has been no final poll. The poll was pulled at the last minute, for secret and conflicting reasons and not shown to the public. This is the first time this has happened. For 19 presidential elections the poll has been a predictor and a driver of votes and momentum. How and why was this historic action taken? Who did it? What is their interest?
In 2016 the Iowa caucus was decided by a coin toss for Hillary Clinton. More correctly seven coin tosses of which Clinton won six. Perhaps Clinton used up all of her luck in those moments as successive coin tosses won by one party six times in a row happens 1 in 64 times. The votes in face to face meetings are re-tabulated at the state level and delegates are awarded by some method that is so far from transparent that in 2016 J.
The emails of John Podesta, the Clinton family chief of staff, as released by Wikileaks are a treasure trove worthy of bathing in if an investigative reporter were suddenly transformed into Scrooge McDuck. Kevin Gosztola of Shadowproof pointed out one gem on twitter with a simple “Isn't this illegal?” Gosztola's instincts were in fact correct. What he found is very likely to be illegal.
The recent trove of Democratic National Committee emails leaked by Guccifer 2.0 via Wikileaks continues to yield gold like Smaug's horde. One thread of emails shows a CNN staffer soliciting edits from both the DNC and the Clinton campaign prior to turning her work in to her editors. Maria Cardona's work background shows she receives two paychecks, one from CNN and the other from an inside the beltway PR firm. Yet she takes her marching orders from Luis Miranda, the Communications Director of the Democratic National Committee.
Party conventions long ago ceased to be places where platforms are decided, decisions are made or votes are cast. Everything material that a party does is meaningless at a convention because the real decisions made by real power brokers happened already. Conventions are media events designed to boost a candidate and create “momentum” enough to keep the public from being fatigued by another three months of speeches full of promises that will never be kept. Well, that is the normal case.
