DNC launches Shadow App to screw Bernie again in Iowa caucus (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 455.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the Iowa caucus chaos that has arisen from ‘inconsistencies’ with an app that was supposed to track the results of the Democrat caucuses, but has instead counted zero results and fueled speculation that Bernie Sanders is about to be cheated once again.

The app was created by Shadow, Inc., a technology firm that was created in January last year after data and messaging service Groundbase was acquired by Democrat non-profit ACRONYM. Shadow’s CEO Gerard Niemira, product manager Ahna Rao and COO James Hickey all worked on the Hillary for America campaign which was defeated by Donald Trump in 2016.

To make matters more murky, Democrat candidate Pete Buttigieg’s campaign contributed $50,000 to the Shadow App development.

Did the Iowa Democratic Party hire Morgan Stanley to build the vote-counting app for its first-in-the-nation caucus? Because last night’s catastrophe made the Facebook IPO look like an organized, orderly market debut.

After the party badly botched the rollout of the results of last night’s Iowa Caucus following “quality control issues” involving the transmission of data from caucus sites to the main reporting headquarters, millions are accusing the Democratic Party of once again trying to rig the nominating contest to favor establishment candidates while undermining the insurgent campaign of ‘Democratic Socialist’ Bernie Sanders.

This technical glitch has led to one of the most electoral catastrophes in recent memory: Roughly 8 hours after results were expected, there’s still nothing, and the entire process has been plunged into chaos. The issue erupted after the Iowa Democratic Party announced late Tuesday that it had found ‘inconsistencies’ in its electronic data, prompting them to audit it against the paper trail, according to NBC News.

Party chair Troy Price said the party is “validating every piece of data we have against our paper trail. That system is taking longer than expected, but it’s in place to ensure we are eventually able to report results with full confidence.”

The state Democratic party’s communications director, Mandy McClure, said on Monday night that there were “inconsistencies” in the reporting of three sets of results. “In addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report,” McClure said.

This is simply a reporting issue. The app did not go down, and this is not a hack or an intrusion. The underlying data and paper trail is sound and will simply take time to further report the results,” McClure added.

Needless to say, polls released in recent weeks showed Bernie Sanders surging ahead, cementing him as the front-runner heading into the race. And then this glitch happens, allowing Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Joe Biden to steal the caucus-evening spotlight with the help of their cronies in the media.

After watching Democrats rig the 2016 primary in favor of Hillary Clinton, thousands have taken to twitter to express their frustration. If the caucus was an unmitigated disaster (made even more hilarious by the fact that all of the candidates invested months of their time and hundreds of millions of dollars trying to clinch the all-important first nominating contest), it was also a wellspring for political humor.

The main takeaway: Is it merely a coincidence that this epic confusion emerged after Bernie’s surge in the polls?

Hmmmm, let me see…….Its it plausible, based on their previous track record, that the DNC would be using a computer app to rig the primaries against Bernie Sanders? Hmmmmmm, gee, I’ll have to think about that. Let me get back to you. DUH!!!! The REAL question should be, what will Bernie do when it is announced later today that Biden has “won” Iowa by oh, say, a six or seven point spread. Will he continue on as a democrat, which will be unequivocal proof that he is “sheepdogging” for the dems for the second time in as many elections, or… Read more »

There must be some gun loving democrats who wish to uphold the law, no? When one sees a daily coup shoved down there throats every single second of every single day, someone should make a counterpoint that resonates, yes? Glad I’m not a Democrat or a gun owner.

I have said it on here a dozen times, I’m sure the truly brainwashed cannot conceive of it as true, but it is, I was pulling for Bernie in 2016. I was even initially a Obama fan, at least until he actually got into office and began his first term. In my heart of hearts, I am an “FDR democrat”. But I really cannot conceive how any human being capable of reason could possibly vote for any democratic candidate after what has gone on in the last four years. They are absolutely vile. Their support of the crushing of free… Read more »

Excellent post, mirrors my own feelings. The fact that this same party may very well end up putting forth that personification of evil & vileness as their candidate says it all. In truth most of what you stated could be said of the Repubs too. Just look at how many on both sides voted to renew the Patriot Act which is a treasonous act against the American people. Dems/Repubs, two different sides of the exact same utterly corrupt coin. Congress very much reminds me of Greek Theater with the comedy / tragedy masks that is representative of it. On one… Read more »

Systematic Betrail, Fraud, Meddling, Manipulation + Corruption in and around the DNC ‘AGAIN’ – 2016 all over again, just to prevent Bernie and other [real]Progressives to prevail – They just piss-on, despise and detest the Voters and Democracy so much, what a sham + farce. To call the election fraud app ‘Shadow’ is really something, it’s pure Hubris Arrogance and Delusions of Grandeur…..that’s soo American.

Joe Biden is just a red herring – the Dems know he’s not a serious contender, but they want all eyes on Biden while they manipulate the votes for Buttigieg. That’s who they really want, and they’re already playing dirty to make sure he gets the nomination.

Sure looks that way.

Mercouris is absolutely correct — if Bernie doesn’t fight back against the swamp now, he won’t do it as president. He cannot allow his followers to fight his battles while he remains silent about the DNC corruption in this election.

The thought should at least be starting to creep into the fringes of peoples political consciousness that its at least possible, that as Alexander hints at, Bernie is not a victim of the process, but part of it. I still tip back and forth, but it has been very much in my political consciousness since the 2016 Democratic convention.
