I have a feeling this week's DNC will turn an apparent all-clear of DEFCON level 4 into a significant DEFCON level 2... politically speaking.
If you thought things looked bad last Philadelphia last week, just wait until the protests begin outside the Wells Fargo Center, where crowds are expected in the 30,000-50,000 range. We'll see. Occupy DNC claims to already have 20,000 committed protesters (and growing). They are just one of more than 30 groups that are already planning to attend.
Tthe DNC is prepared.... they built a wall ↗
Hillary probably approves:
Friday I had mentioned they didn't even have a schedule locked down. Now it appears a prime-time speaking slot just opened up. Debbie Doberman Schultz has either removed herself or was told to sit down by the DNC, just a day before the convention is set to begin, over leaked emails that were highly critical of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.
In a May 5th email, under a subject line of “No s–t,” DNC CFO Brad Marshall was fishing for a way to label the Jewish Sanders as an atheist (people I thought the Democrat Party stood up for all this time):
Per the NY Post ("how Democrats screwed Sanders"):
“It might [make] no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief,” Marshall wrote, apparently referring to Sanders and upcoming Kentucky and West Virginia primaries.
“Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage,’’ Marshall asked.
“I think I read he is an atheist.”
“This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and atheist.”
The chief executive officer at the DNC, Amy Dacey, responded with a single word: “Amen.”
Marshall told The Intercept that he didn’t recall the sleazy e-mail.
But then he claimed it wasn’t an attempted hit job on Sanders.
“I can say it would not have been Sanders. It would probably be about a surrogate,” Marshall told the Web site.
He did not explain why the DNC would try to slime a Sanders surrogate.
I've heard some bad explanations, but the surrogate one is awful. Can we please ask Mr Marshall which surrogate the DNC would be so anxious to label an atheist, and not a Jew? Inquiring minds want to know.
There was also talk of collusion with the media in the leaked emails released by WikiLeaks... which is why this is funny:

Check out that interview:

DEFCON 3 is in effect.
It's gonna be a good week.
