Lawyers For The DNC Argue That 'Primary Rigging' Is Protected By The First Amendment

Via Disobedient Media,

The ongoing litigation of the DNC Fraud Lawsuit and the appeal regarding its dismissal took a stunning turn yesterday. The defendants in the case, including the DNC and former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, filed a response brief that left many observers of the case at a loss for words.

The document, provided by the law offices of the Attorneys for the Plaintiffs in the case, Jared and Elizabeth Beck, and appears to argue that if the Democratic Party did cheat Sanders in the 2016 Presidential primary race, then that action was protected under the first amendment. Twitter users were quick to respond to the brief, expressing outrage and disgust at the claims made by representatives of the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The Defense counsel also argued that because of Jared Beck’s outspoken twitter posts, the plaintiffs were using the litigation process for political purposes: “For example, Plaintiffs’ counsel Jared Beck repeatedly refers to the DNC as “shi*bags” on Twitter and uses other degrading language in reference to Defendants.” Fascinatingly, no mention is made regarding the importance of First Amendment at this point in the document.

The defense counsel also took issue with Jared Beck for what they termed as: “…Repeatedly promoted patently false and deeply offensive conspiracy theories about the deaths of a former DNC staffer and Plaintiffs’ process server in an attempt to bolster attention for this lawsuit.”

This author was shocked to find that despite the characterization of the Becks as peddlers of conspiracy theory, the defense counsel failed to mention the motion for protection filed by the Becks earlier in the litigation process. They also failed to note the voice-modulated phone calls received by the law offices of the Becks which contained a caller-ID corresponding to the law offices of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a defendant in the case. In light of this context, the Becks hardly appear to be peddlers of conspiracy theory.

The DNC defense lawyers then argued that: There is no legitimate basis for this litigation, which is, at its most basic, an improper attempt to forge the federal courts into a political weapon to be used by individuals who are unhappy with how a political party selected its candidate in a presidential campaign.”

The brief continued: “…To recognize any of the causes of action that Plaintiffs allege based on their animating theory would run directly contrary to long-standing Supreme Court precedent recognizing the central and critical First Amendment rights enjoyed by political parties, especially when it comes to selecting the party’s nominee for public office.

It appears that the defendants in the DNC Fraud Lawsuit are attempting to argue that cheating a candidate in the primary process is protected under the first amendment.

If all that weren’t enough, DNC representatives argued that the Democratic National Committee had no established fiduciary duty “to the Plaintiffs or the classes of donors and registered voters they seek to represent.”

It seems here that the DNC is arguing for its right to appoint candidates at its own discretion while simultaneously denying any “fiduciary duty” to represent the voters who donated to the Democratic Party under the belief that the DNC would act impartially towards the candidates involved.

Adding to the latest news regarding the DNC Fraud Lawsuit was the recent finding by the UK Supreme Court, which stated that Wikileaks Cables were admissible as evidence in legal proceedings.

If Wikileaks’ publication of DNC emails are found to be similarly admissible in a United States court of law, then the contents of the leaked emails could be used to argue that, contrary to the defendant’s latest brief, the DNC did favor the campaign of Hillary Clinton over Senator Sanders and that they acted to sabotage Sanders’ campaign.

The outcome of the appeal of the DNC Fraud Lawsuit remains to be seen. Disobedient Media will continue to report on this important story as it unfolds.

Even on a practical level, beyond the "fraud is free speech" argument, they don't seem to have considered that this argument is a lose/lose proposition. Even if they (DNC) win legally, they are going to lose as people turn away from the finger they're giving them.

They use the term selected in what is to be an election process. Humerous to say the least. 

The DNC/RNC select who you get to elect. They call that a democratic process? 

Is the only way to protest this fraud to stop voting?

Not so for murder, and rigging the general election. 

Seth Rich murder and DHS investigation into 2016 election tampering soon to expose this party's contempt for the law, and all other forms of ethical conduct.

The Democratic party is burned beyond recognition now. Why don't the Greens, Libertarians and Berniecrats  start a new party? Sound silly? Well it would make more sense than the current state of affairs.

The leaders of the Democrap Party (or the Republican Party for that matter) can indeed name whom ever they want to be the party candidate for president or any other office regardless of a vote of supposed party members or the public.  But.....if they fool the people with the scam of a fake primary, nobody in their right mind should ever vote for that party or their nominees.

Much the same way, I could form a political party and have a bunch of people vote for the nominee from a list of possible candidates.  Then, if I didn't win the vote I could just name myself as the nominee anyway.  It's just that no one would vote for me in the general election after running such a scham.

Okay... Okay... DNC...

If We Go Down That Road Then Russian-Americans citizens have the right to influence the Presidential Primary/Elections...

Russian influencers can freely and legally ask these Ruskies to buy and post millions of ads/articles... collect info on DNC crimes... and rig the DNC primary... and thus be shielded by the SAME law.

As Hilary would say... "What Difference Does It Make" 

Case Closed... Next...

The biggest news that came out of the last election is that the two political parties are PRIVATE CORPORATIONS [left unsaid is that they are both financed by the Supranational Money Power Monopolist Mega-Corporate Global Fascist Empire, aka the precise descriptive name of what the programmed call the undescriptive "New World Order"] and the management teams pick the nomination, NOT THE GULLIBLE, MUPPETS who believe their "vote" actually counts!

Until Voter ID laws are strengthened to the point where we can track our own votes, and determine whether there is fraud via unregistered voters....there will always be able to skew elections and skrew the public... Before they (TPTB) force autonomous driven cars on us, couldn't we insist on free and fair elections?  

Now that would be even better that watching Elon Musk shoot tax-payer subsidized rockets off, and wondering how much that electric car is being subsidized by my grandchildren.

Just wow! What kind of lawyers do they have? They basically admit  their illegal acts but say they are legal under the first amendment? Lmao at the stupidity there. 

This should be a sign for all the supporters of these crooks to slowly back away and bow their heads in shame.

Well, I guess the communist party of China would prevent this type of thing.  I do hope that if the Jews are planning to move all of their finances to Asia that the Chinese are ready to do them in.  I wonder if this is the reason that they advised that the constitution of China was being changed.  Funny, the Jews invented totalitarian communism and now it may be coming back to haunt them.

Sanders got far more than that and he was PART of the fraud . doing what he always does sheep doggin for the Democratic party. A total fraud and coward. A dual Israeli pushing the Russiagate narrative. A total dirty politician.

And he didn't take money from corporations during his campaign? All LIES, he was second only to Clinton in receiving gifts from Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. Sanders belongs in prison with the rest of them.

What is the difference? There is no any justice in America. It is all gone.

The US people are polarized and, thanks to Hollywood and mainstream media, with the culture of lawless, violence, and hatred of everybody. America is a very sick country with a fake President and the utterly corrupt US Congress. It will not end good or bloodless.

The US military reliance on super-technology is poorly thought of since these high-tech military systems require very highly-educated and intelligent people to operate these systems while the US educational system being a total failure cannot produce.

Fake President?

Fuck YOU!

He's the best one ( for doing what he said he'd do ) I've EVER SEEN in my over half a century on this orb.

I love the FACT that I'm no longer coerced into paying 'a fine' for med care. I love the fact that military MEN can make their own decisions without calling some faggot or woman to beg for permission to do what needs being done. I love the fact that he's undoing the little Kenyan Kueer's actions-one by one. I've never had so much joy as I've had watching it happen!

I love the fact that President TRIUMPH is unabashedly PRO-AMERICAN (fuck the rest of the World )

This guy has more fricking cajones than any man I've ever met as he is deluged DAILY with bullshit and lies as they try to take him down with assistance from every news agency in the World. I cut the cable of propaganda as it was despicable to watch the deviants and illegals pushed as America's best 'hope'. Fuck that. I want Crusades IX already ( or whatever the number is right ).

Before 'm only usefull as a bullet receptacle.

But hey, what do I know?
