Where is the total count of Iowa’s caucus votes? And why is “our free press” not pushing for it? (Those are rhetorical questions.)
That Bernie’s victory has been deliberately obscured is clear enough in the results from Black Hawk County, where he unquestionably won—but where his victory margin seems to have been whittled down by the Iowa Democratic Party.
Attached are a statement, and count, from Chris Schwartz, Black HawkCounty Supervisor, and the state’s very different count.
These items have been posted on Facebook, and were sent to me by my friends Steve Jimenez and Ian Berman. That we must scramble out here on the margins, searching for the true count from those caucuses, while”our free press” pumps out its usual cascades of “fake news” (a/k/a”propaganda”), on this and every other subject, is yet another sign that, in fact, We the People are in graver danger than we’ve ever seen.
Surprisingly, this is the Daily Beast.
A somewhat useful summary on the Shadow app, albeit one that sticks to what “our free press”has reported on it, and the “snafu” that it caused in Iowa:
Lee Camp’s great riff on how what happened there was no “snafu” or “glitch,” but a deliberate means of stopping Bernie and replacing him with Pete Buttigieg, “the Juan Guaido of America”:
And how could this be happening? How could the Iowa caucuses get wiped out right before our eyes, its actual winner deemed the loser to a candidate who obviously lost, and “our free press” go along with it, suppressing all the evidence that this is what went down?
It’s happening because “Mayor Pete” is not the people’s choice, but the CIA’s choice for president, just as Obama was (and arguably Clinton, too, and George H.W. Bush before him). With his Social Justice profile as “our first gay president,” this spook could serve our overlords just as Obama did, his race and pseudo-liberal rhetoric enabling him to keep the war machine at work throughout the world, bail out the banks, trash civil liberties, and otherwise maintain the elites’ long preventive war against American democracy.
(I take no pleasure in reminding you that I predicted this back when Joe Biden was portrayed as the front runner, though he wasn’t, and “our free press” kept juxtaposing his old-white-man image with the Social Justice specters of such “challengers” as Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker—and Pete Buttigieg, whose “victory” in Iowa is now being forced on us through electronic means, and censorship of all contrary evidence.)
From Kevin Zeese:
There is still a lot to uncover about the caucus catastrophe last night in Iowa, but there are disturbing signs of Buttigieg, Clinton and Obama campaigns being tied to the corporations involved in the failed app. This combined with Buttigieg’s complaints that stopped the reporting on the very reliable night-before-the-caucus poll and his bizarre victory speech is starting to create a narrative of corruption and theft from Bernie Sanders. It is going to be interesting to watch this develop and the Democrats squirm. At this point, it could be either corruption or just incompetence of the Iowa Democratic Party. More information will be needed. Here’s a start:
A comment on my FB page has a lot of links:
Here is more info Kevin – I do not know the source person, Jared Glass, but there are links supporting his commentary:
Get this though!
The app which malfunctioned and has caused this whole “everyone wins Iowa” situation was developed by a firm called Shadow, and if you think that sounds shady, just wait! Shadow is a branch of ACRONYM, which is “a Democratic digital nonprofit group that has rapidly expanded in recent years.” It’s full of Obama and Clinton folks.
Here’s where it gets interesting: Greta Carnes is Acronym’s senior organizing director and also happens to be the national organizing director for the Pete Buttigieg campaign. Tara McGowen, ACRONYM’s founder and CEO, worked on the Obama 12 campaign, and then on a SuperPAC for our good buddy Tom Steyer. Hi, Bernie!
But wait there’s more, ACRONYM’s largest individual donor is a guy named Seth Klarman. He was a big Republican donor up until after Trump was elected. At which point he started supporting Democrats. He has given specifically to Pete B and Amy K.

Finally, because yes there’s more. Pete’s campaign has given Shadow $42,500 for “Software Rights and Subscriptions” in July of last year. I do not know what that means or what services/products Shadow offers, but I do know that consulting and text messages are itemized differently and Gillibrand and Biden appear on the FEC as well for those services, respectively.

And it’s well known by know that a call from Pete’s campaign resulted in the Des Moines Register poll getting canceled.
I don’t know if the establishment and billionaire class are actively working to suppress Bernie’s chances. I don’t know enough about Sludge and it’s a newer site started by ex-twitter people (gross) so who knows. It’s even completely normal to spend money with political groups through campaign, Pete’s business with them was probably legitimate.
But after 4 years of Trump, I’ve got a general rule. If it looks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, and it walks like a duck….
