During the 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton had an unexpected aggressive challenge from Vermont senator, Bernie Sanders. Sanders was particularly well received by the millennials as he campaigned across the country. To a great extent his message of free college tuition, free government sponsored health care, and other alleged “free benefits” that this group felt they were entitled to was very welcome. Considering the information that has come to light involving Hillary Clinton in the expose by Donna Brazile, the former Interim Chair of the Democrat National Committee leads me to believe the Bernie supporters will soon be back in mass. Once again, I feel certain we will soon hear the drum beat for freebies for all from Uncle Bernie as his message echoes across the land. It should be noted that a recent survey done by the Federalist revealed that 44 % of the millennials favored a socialist state rather than living in a capitalist society. No wonder Bernie was so well received; he was going to provide “free money” to pay for the goodies. Add to this confused situation, a 2016 New York Times survey of millennials revealed that only 16% could accurately define socialism. I believe it is incumbent for Bernie to break the news that he does not have access to a money tree, and for the millennials to reexamine their perspective.

Meanwhile the statements of Brazile on the status of the Democrat party being in debt to the tune of $25 million dollars as Obama was leaving office and the subsequent revelation that Hillary Clinton funded the obligations of the party, certainly begs for questioning. This ‘gracious’ action on her part allowed her to gain control of fund raising, strategy, all hiring decisions, mailings, and other campaign plans. Her opponent, Bernie Sanders, was basically neutered without knowing for sure it was actually happening.

In addition, the fact that money from the Democrat National Committee paid for the Fusion GPS dossier from the Russians for dirt on Donald Trump with disguised payments through the committee law firm to the tune of 9 million dollars is still another unacceptable source of the flow of money. Whether it is from the Clintons or other unsavory sources like George Soros, it is more and more apparent that the Democrat Party is in massive disarray and has only a combination of Sanders and Elizabeth Warren (the fake Indian) as their answer.

Not to be forgotten but very soon, the informant that has been in hiding in regards to the Uranium One sale will appear before a Senate committee to reveal previously undisclosed information. Although Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State at the time of the approval of the sale of 20 % of the United States supply of uranium, there were 8 other members on the committee that approved this sale. It should also be understood that there was only one individual that could have stopped this transaction in its tracks, and that was Barack Obama. This most certainly requires scrutiny to understand fully how this valuable natural resource could be sold to a group of individuals that in fact were financially locked into the Russian government. I am confident in expressing the opinion that Russia is an enemy of our country. Keep in mind that within weeks after this sale was approved, Bill Clinton was rewarded $500,000 for a speech in Moscow and the aforementioned 9 individuals later donated a total of $145,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation. The aroma of this transaction is rather pungent

I hope you will take time to consider where “all the money comes from” when you consider the machinations of the Democrats in the upcoming 2018 elections.
