Here’s What You Need to Know About That DNC Bombshell From Donna Brazile

What happened?

Former interim Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile revealed some key information about the Clinton campaign’s connection to the DNC’s finances on Thursday.

In an excerpt from her upcoming book, Brazile said the DNC’s fundraising was tied to the Clinton campaign – something the DNC agreed to because the organization was deeply in debt. Hillary Clinton’s team controlled the DNC’s “finances, strategy and all the money raised.”

Brazile added in the excerpt that the shady deal was “not illegal” but “looked unethical.”

Get more details with our explainer here.

Glenn’s take:

The civil war inside the Democratic Party shows the growing strength of the socialist base that rallies around people like Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. These Democrats want free health care, free college and a higher minimum wage, and they are ready to take over the party. Brazile’s revelation shows a base in revolt.

“There are new leaders stepping forward amongst the Democrats, and they’re beginning to push back against the establishment,” Glenn said. “There is a new Democratic base growing.”

GLENN: Civil War has finally come to America. Civil War, it is happening. It's just happening in the Democratic Party, and no one is paying any attention.

Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazil dropped a bombshell yesterday when she revealed that the Clinton campaign, through internal corruption and unethical finances, wielded near complete control over the DNC.

Oh, my gosh. I'm completely shocked.

What? The Clintons were underhanded and dirty? She went on to describe how the Obama campaign had left the party bankrupt and in shambles.

Oh, my gosh. Who would have seen that coming? I'm sorry. I just have so much to say here.

The Hillary campaign stepped in and began to pay off the millions in debt, but for a price. Brazil alleges that Hillary had, quote, the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director. Who would make the financial decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailing. End quote.

Well, he who has the gold rules the world. Keep in mind, Hillary and her campaign were wielding this power over the DNC before she got the nomination. So Brazil is saying that both Trump and Bernie Sanders were right. The system was rigged in Hillary's favor.

No. Let's forget the fact that Hillary Clinton beat Sanders by nearly 4 million votes. That's 55 percent of the vote, with 12 percent HEP. If they -- you know, if that were to happen in the general election, we would be calling it a landslide.

But forget all of that for a second. Here we have Donna Brazile, who tried to rig a debate for Hillary, now saying Hillary rigged the primary against Bernie. Not only did she blast Hillary, she also made critical remarks regarding Obama, claiming his campaign basically destroyed the party.

What are the Democrats doing?

The New Yorker ran an article the day before all this came out saying there was a big divide within the party and how to move forward. There are new leaders stepping forward amongst the Democrats. And they're beginning to push back against the establishment.

Were Brazil's remarks part of an opening salvo HEP aimed at overturning the current leadership?

There is a new Democratic base growing. And this information is going to severely piss them off. The new base is listening to people like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and Harris.

This is a socialist base. They want free health care, free college, and high minimum wage. They're sick of the middle, and they want a hard turn to the far left. Are you going to hear anyone call these guys radicals or extremists?

No. You won't. A recent poll found that nearly half of millennials in the country now prefer to live in a socialist state, over a capitalist state.

This quiet civil war just went public. And the winners may take the word "fundamental transformation" to a whole new level.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
