WASHINGTON — The Democratic National Committee on Monday dedicated the bike rack in front of its main headquarters to Omaha native Seth Rich, DNC staffer who was slain over the summer.
A plaque now on the wall above the bikes describes Rich as:
“Son of Omaha. Fierce fighter for voting rights. Devoted Democrat. Friend to all, including panda. Who left us too soon.”
A graduate of Central High School and Creighton University, Rich worked for the DNC on voters’ rights and was particularly involved in developing ways to making voting easier through technology.
The 27-year-old was shot at 4:19 a.m. on July 10, close to his D.C. home. Indications from police have pointed to a botched robbery. No arrests have been made, and no suspects have been announced.
Rich’s girlfriend, Kelsey Mulka, parked Rich’s bike in the rack before the dedication, which drew a crowd of DNC workers.
“I knew probably more than anyone how much this meant to him, working here with all of you, and I really want you to keep your heads high and carry on this fight,” she said during the dedication. “And make sure that at the end of the day that we all know that love is going to win and that fear and hate will not overcome us.”
DNC officials said they chose to dedicate the bike rack to Rich because he often used his bike to get around town and having the plaque out front would remind them every morning and night to keep working for what he believed in.
DNC interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile described Rich as a dedicated public servant who cared about justice, equality and the right to vote.
“Seth, I know you’re listening to us,” Brazile said. “We will not forget your work. We appreciate all that you did to help us be a stronger, a much more determined party, to ensure every American is registered and gets out to vote.”
She highlighted the $145,000 that has been pledged in reward money to anyone who helps police bring those responsible for Rich’s death to justice.
In addition to the $25,000 reward offered by D.C. police — customary in homicides — the organization WikiLeaks has offered an additional $20,000 and a GOP lobbyist has offered $100,000.
Now is not the time for moments of silence. Now is the time for men’s hearts to stir. If you’re expecting the government’s to protect you then you are stupid so Fuck you. They are telling you it’s part of normal big city life now. They are normalizing terror attacks now and the blow back from overseas operations continues unabated.
President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
The post refers to it self and says democracy dies in the darkness. Well they are the laser pointer that makes the cats go the other way. They way they do this is not by investigative journalism but by innuendo and phony sources that we never know. If these people have information on treason then they should come forward but they never do like Snowden and so many others. No they want to protect their job we are told.
Through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.
Wow this former US official sounds like a real stand up guy. You can imagine how worried this person must be to give out information that should be classified about what the president told the Russians. Who has the right to make an entire accusation out of unknown sources and innuendo? The very conversation its self is classified.
It is all kind of shocking,” said a former senior U.S. official who is close to current administration officials. “Trump seems to be very reckless and doesn’t grasp the gravity of the things he’s dealing with, especially when it comes to intelligence and national security. And it’s all clouded because of this problem he has with Russia.”
“Everyone knows this stream is very sensitive, and the idea of sharing it at this level of granularity with the Russians is troubling,” said a former senior U.S. counterterrorism official who also worked closely with members of the Trump national security team. He and others spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the subject.
So sensitive but they could not wait to tell the post? This is bull shit
“I’m sure Kislyak was able to fire off a good cable back to the Kremlin with all the details” he gleaned from Trump, said the former U.S. official who handled intelligence on Russia.
The White House readout of the meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak made no mention of the discussion of a terrorist threat.
So we are just to supposed to swallow this bull shit whole. Here is a whole page of disinfo graphics to make it seem more real. They promise to update them when they get actual real information! They promise.
