The Democratic establishment is already taking steps to stop insurgent progressive challengers to the party's incumbents.
The corporate puppets are NOT going to give up or even take their finger off the scale. This includes the DNC.
Have you heard that Bill PRess radio commercial where he’s talking to someone from the DNC?
SHe says the DNC isn’t going to get involved in the Primary’s this time - Bill says “you mean like you did last time” and she starts sputtering about being hands off THIS time.
They pay it on WCPT in Chicago once in a while. Hilarious
(YES I get this this is the DCCC not the DNC - same difference)
THey arent going to let anyone take away their money train. It’s time for a new Party on the Left ( BERNIE are you listening damnit?)
“Consultants who planned to work with Newman said that the DCCC delivered the warning in the nicest terms possible—but that it was a very clear threat to their ability to do business with the DCCC.”
Yeah, the Mafia delivers its first warning in the nicest terms possible too.
“The DCCC has worked to change how Washington works, increase transparency in politics, and be perfectly clear with all its partners about the standards it expects of them. . . .”
Now that’s just a bare-faced lie.
The DCCC and the DNC are definitely working for Trump.
I do not believe that they are working for Trump, but they are working against anyone progressive. If that leaves us with The Big Ugly for another 4 years, they are not concerned. They just don’t want their ‘entitlements’ challenged.
The Democratic* Party

So how’s that progressive takeover of the D party coming along?
I’d say, considering the panic over the ‘progressives’ stepping in their wall street slop bucket, it is ‘progressing’ well.
O.K., damnocrat apologists…ANOTHER thimg for you to defend!
So, what’s the DCCC going to do when AOC and other current DEM progressive incumbents come up for re-election? Change the rules again?
This is disgusting.
why would they fight Trump??? Trump makes a perfect fake enemy, just like Obama was a perfect fake progressive.
Actually making gains, it’s not a one-day fight.
Hey you wonks! We need progressive mail firms and polling firms that exhibit integrity, firms that won’t turn and rob candidates in an instant. Could you start one? Wonkettes are more than welcome here.
Hey angels! Could you fund, set up and organize a struggling wonk?
Junta, A council or small legislative body in a government, especially in Central or South America.
Is this what our party has come to? I support the practice of denying contributions to the DCCC and making them directly to the candidates of ones choice.
One can’t call a party that dictates how a candidate campaigns on popular and egalitarian principals democratic. That is for Republicans to do.
if you did not see them for what they are before, there is nothing to blind you now. they are damn democrats, from Pelosi to Schumer, to Hoyer. disgusting display of autocratic rule. WE NEED A THIRD PARTY ASAP. The fools are keeping us from making our dreams come true.
Stepping in the bucket is discouraged but kicking it to hell and gone must have become a no-no after the last election. Hard to control a horse that thinks it lives in a democracy and has the bit in its teeth. Screw the DCCC junta!
Please send this woman some $$$ if you can. 3000 people xs $10 isn’t small potatoes. Shake the short change from the old fruit jar, as they say.
I won’t be watching Bill Maher’s neoliberal talk show any more. What shit. The Democrats are going to lose again.
We are so screwed ! So not one article on the current constitutional crisis happening in the US. The president of the United States accuses the democrats of a “coup” and this is not news??? The IRS defies subpoenas from congress twice and what is the response----the democrats go on vacation. The puppet attorney general spins the Mueller report and people like Jimmy Dore and Chris Hedges eat it up???
