The Democrat National Committee has gotten itself into trouble for election interference in the State of New Hampshire. The DNC order the New Hampshire Democrat Party to educate their voters about how the New Hampshire primary is “meaningless.” This is blatant voter suppression, not to mention kind of insulting. Joe Biden didn’t even bother registering to run in the New Hampshire primary, because the Democrats are trying to make South Carolina their party’s first primary. That’s because they’re trying to racially pander to black voters who are abandoning Joe Biden in droves.
Last week, the DNC sent a letter to New Hampshire Democrat Party Chair Raymond Buckley, to deliver him his new marching orders.
The Attorney General just sent a letter back to the DNC, noting that it had “commanded NHDP to ‘educate the public’ that the New Hampshire democratic Presidential Primary Election is ‘meaningless.’ Falsely telling New Hampshire voters that a New Hampshire election is ‘meaningless’ violates New Hampshire voter suppression laws.”
“Accordingly, this Office orders you, the DNC… to immediately cease and desist from engaging in any conduct that violates… State election law.”
The Republican caucus in Iowa takes place next Tuesday. Democrats pushed their caucus back to March 5, so it will happen after the South Carolina primary. The New Hampshire first-in-the-nation primary is scheduled for January 23rd.
The reason for all these shenanigans is fairly easy to interpret based on the last two presidential primaries. In 2016, Crooked Hillary Clinton got her butt kicked by Bernie Sanders in Iowa and New Hampshire. So, the DNC colluded with Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) to steal the race for Crooked Hillary in South Carolina. She ran away with the nomination after South Carolina.
In 2020, Joe Biden the dementia potato was losing to Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg after Iowa and New Hampshire. Buttigieg won Iowa, and he and Bernie split New Hampshire. The DNC and Clyburn stole the race from everyone else and handed it to Biden after the South Carolina primary. Biden ran away with the 2020 nomination after South Carolina.
The problem for the Democrats is that their own voters hate their main candidates. Sure, they’ll fall in line for the general election, but Hillary was not the voters’ first choice in 2016 in Iowa or New Hampshire. Joe Biden was not the voters’ first choice in 2020 in Iowa or New Hampshire. Since their own pesky voter base won’t follow orders and vote for the party’s approved candidate, the DNC has opted to take away the first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire and the first-in-the-nation caucus in Iowa.
New Hampshire, however, has a state law that its primary has to be at least 7 days prior to any other primaries. (Iowa has a caucus and not a primary, so it doesn’t count.) As much as the DNC would like to have the authority to upend state election laws, they don’t have that power. The DNC telling New Hampshire voters that their votes are meaningless is only half of the strategy that they are deploying. Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, is urging Democrat voters in New Hampshire to cast a “strategic” vote in the primary… for Nikki Haley. Under New Hampshire’s system, voters can choose either a Republican or Democrat ballot for any primary. Plouffe is encouraging Democrats to cast a vote that would count (since their own primary votes won’t count), by meddling in the Republican primary.
This probably doesn’t feel great for the 21 Democrat candidates who went through the trouble to get on the ballot in New Hampshire. Yes, there are 21 of them. Marianne Williamson is one of the few with any name recognition. The rest are relatively unknown, but why does the DNC get to declare them non-candidates? Their names are on the ballot!
If I were a Democrat, I’d cast a spite vote for Williamson, just to stick it to the DNC. They’re demanding absolutely loyalty to Joe Biden and telling the voters that their votes don’t count. That’s absurd.
It’s pretty pathetic that the Democrat Party has to cheat in their own primaries to keep their own chosen candidate at the top of the ticket. Then again, the RNC used to do that before you-know-who came along.
