After Bernie Sanders was robbed by the DNC in 2016, they are making some significant changes. During the 2016 election, the DNC was basically put under the control of Hillary Clinton. She had access to direct their funding, she was fed debate questions ahead of time, and she quickly gained control of DNC super delegates. Super delegates are DNC operatives who are given convention votes along side the delegates the voters select. In 2016 they helped turn the election away from populist socialist Bernie Sanders.
The DNC is now limiting the super delegates by preventing them from voting on a first ballot. This means they will only be used if one candidate can’t secure the necessary delegates from the actual election process. In a coming year of populist socialists like Sanders, Warren, and Ocasio-Cortez, the Left is now likely going to spit out a candidate from their more extremist side. Older moderates like Joe Biden will have a tougher fight in the primary.

The Russian Collusion story ended up being a big disappointment for the DNC. In fact, the handful of Russians indicted small crimes like identity theft did not match up to the hype heading into the Mueller investigation. But what about Chinese collusion?
A new study has reported that the Communist country is funneling money into Leftist thinktanks to influence policy and elections. United Front Work Department is a committee based in Communist China dedicated to influencing foreign countries to be favorable towards communism. In addition to funding Democrat groups, they are also seeking to influence academia and may be violating US law. The group is also looking to recruit students to help in their attempts to show communism in a favorable light in academia.

NASCAR racer Conor Daly has lost a sponsorship for his car after it was discovered that his father once used a racial slur in the 1980s. I suppose I won’t spend much time speculating how many sports stars have fathers who said insensitive stuff 30+ years ago, but can we all agree that this is ridiculous? People should be responsible for their own actions. Lilly Diabetes was the sponsor. They certainly have a right as a business to pull their sponsorship. And we have a right to judge whether they were correct in their decision to punish Daly for the sins of his father.
