The cyber-peep hole: How our government really operates

Nice work if you can buy it.  How much would you give the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to be ambassador to Monaco?

Oh, the promises Obama offered during that first campaign.  A clean and transparent administration it will be, free from influence and lobbyists.  Yet we continue to have delivered to us, via unforeseen and foreign sources, the truths of how power and greed move the needle in Washington, D.C.  Gucifer, Snowden, and Wikileaks seem to provide the truths that somehow otherwise, and deliberately, are hidden from the citizenship.

How did one become an ambassador or even assistant attorney general in the Obama years?  An article detailing the antics, and the money shuffle, is provided by Zero Hedge.

A large number of the largest donors (to the DNC)  received senior diplomatic or political positions following the donations, ranging from UK Ambassador to Assistant Attorney General. The DNC released a statement pre-emptively claiming that this was the work of Russia.

What was the work of Russia – the revelation of the truth?  I would counter that the “pay to play” game is the work of the DNC.  Whose work is a violation of the public trust?  From the Zero Hedge article:

  • It appears Richard M. Lobo’s wife, Caren Lobo, donated $716,000 to DNC. Obama then nominated Richard Lobo for Director of the International Broadcasting Bureau.
  • Pamela Hamamoto paid DNC $605,000 then became the Permanent Representative of the United States of America to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva.
  • Jane Hartley paid DNC $605,000 and then was nominated by Obama to serve concurrently as the U.S. Ambassador to the French Republic and the Principality of Monaco.
  • Crystal Nix-Hines paid DNC $600,000 and then was nominated by President Obama to the position of United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization with the rank of Ambassador.
  • Bruce J. Oreck donated $1,136,613 to the DNC and served as US ambassador to Finland 2009 to 2015.
  • Robert A. Mandell donated $1,121,250 to the DNC; then President Obama named Mandell the Ambassador to Luxembourg in June 2011.
  • Julius Genachowski donated $3,494,919 to DNC and served as Chairman of the FCC from 2009 to 2013.
  • Karol Mason donated $856,000 to the DNC and Obama appoints her as Assistant Attorney General, Office of Justice Programs.

The Zero Hedge article continues:

The DNC responded to the latest hack claim Tuesday through its Interim Chair Donna Brazile, who stated that the “DNC is the victim of a crime,” which she blamed on “Russian state-sponsored agents,” while also cautioning that the hacked documents were still being authenticated by the DNC legal team, as “it is common for Russian hackers to forge documents.” DNC pre-emptively published a statement in an attempt to change the narrative[.]

The victim is not the DNC.  The victims are the citizens of the United States, who must rely on the truth from these curious sources.  Truths that were denied from whom and by whom, Donna?
