(Wasserman Schultz immediately joins Clinton campaign after resignation 07/24/2016)
The Wiki-leaks of the Democratic National Committee have shown what many of us already knew; that democracy is a farce and that bribery is standard operating procedure, although they don't call it bribery as long as they carefully avoid what lawyers call a "quid quo pro." They also show that an enormous amount of the money they collect is used to research how to indoctrinate the public into voting for candidates that routinely break their promises.
One of the most widely spread E-Mails includes an attachment about how gain Hispanic support, reflecting how they studied them; however it is virtually guaranteed that they have additional studies for most if not all racial groups, age groups, religions, and other demographic groups.
Democrats have often criticized the Republicans for being opposed to science including evidence of Global Warming; however there is an enormous amount of evidence that although they're not quite as obvious, most of the time, they also ignore the best research on any given subject when it suits their purposes.
However these E-Mails indicate that they're studying the psychological science of manipulating the public to convince them to support their candidate for the benefit of their donors; instead of educating the public about science that would help make policy decisions that benefit the public, on any given issues, including violence that the media has been covering involving shootings by or of the police and international violence selling arms and inciting terrorism.
No doubt the Republicans also use similar research but they try to attract a different constituency while serving the same campaign donors who win as long as we keep settling for the same two Parties that routinely betray us.
These are a review of some of the E-Mails and further implications that traditional media isn't covering along with examples of how manipulation tactics are playing out at the Democratic National Convention:
Wink and Nod Bribery Tactics
One of the leaked E-Mails, Wikileaks E-Mail: Jordan Kaplan Re: lucky you? 07/2/2016, show how careful the lawyers at the DNC and presumably other political Parties and Campaigns are about avoiding official bribery; but clearly demonstrates that is what is going on, even if they don't call it that, thanks to limited definition created by lawyers and lobbyists. In response to a "NOT strategic question," asked by Robert Glovsky, Vice Chair of The Colony Group, "The one question I need to get a handle on is what I get if I give the $33,400 by June 1 to the Victory Fund - either from the campaign or the DNC. and, how does that compare to being a Hillraiser." to Naomi Aberly she avoided promising him what might be considered a quid pro quo. However it is incredibly obvious that is what he wanted. By not turning him away completely it implies that they're not entirely opposed to bribes as long as it is considered legal.
Jordan Kaplan told Naomi that "He would have more juice at the DNC than with HVF (Hillary Victory Fund)," further implying that bribery is acceptable as long as it don't fit the incredibly narrow definition of a Quid Pro Quo. On top of that this should clearly demonstrate collusion between the DMC and Hillary Campaign which isn't available to those not supported by establishment like Bernie Sanders campaign.
In addition to implicating the DNC and Hillary Clinton this adds to evidence of donors buying influence with the Obama administration, which promised not to hire lobbyists when he campaigned in 2008. This is just one of many broken promises he made and the following articles along with some of the related leaks further demonstrate how money is corrupting politics at epidemic levels.

Hispanic and Other Demographic Groups Indoctrination Tactics
Outreach to Hispanics or any other demographic group doesn't seem to involve encouraging them to check facts, which Karla Ortiz and other Hispanics might be advised to do before joining the campaign and realizing they've been betrayed, as indicated by the following attachment obtained from RE: Follow Up 05/22/2016 Getting out the Latino Vote in 2016 and Beyond
This is a result of an enormous research into how voters, in this case Hispanics, respond to various outreach methods. This is only a small sample of advertising research for both sales and political purposes, which attempts to get the views of the advertiser across without fact checking when ever possible. Most of this research is considered proprietary and researchers are routinely required to sign non-disclosure agreements recognized by the legal system. This should, and would, raise many ethical issues if the vast majority of the public understood them, which of course they don't. By making this type of research proprietary, with protection under the legal system, the law is aiding and abetting conspiracies to psychologically manipulate the public for either marketing scams or political manipulation to get the public to vote against their own best interests without realizing they're being manipulated.
This is basically a description of indoctrination methods although they avoid phrasing it that way.
"Brand loyal consumers," assuming Hispanics are as loyal as they claim, are an advertisers dream because they buy based on Brand without following up with comparison shopping. Their attempt to "develop a relationship with Hispanics based on trust and inclusion," is unlikely to hold up to scrutiny if a reasonable amount of fact checking is done, as indicated below with a review of how Hillary Clinton has responded to Karla's request in the past. The protests in California before their primary also indicates that a lot of well informed Hispanics were aware of her deceptions already, although, perhaps with the help of this psychological research it appears as if a lot of other Hispanics have fallen for their propaganda.
They claim that "Hispanics are the most responsive to 'story telling,'” which may be true, at least to some degree. However this involves more appeals to emotions and attempting to develop friendship, presumably with a small percentage of people since they can't get to know them all. However if they befriend people with a lot of popularity, which is well known among social marketers, they can encourage them to recruit others based on appeals to emotions. Once they trust their "friends" or perceived friends they may be much more willing to believe them without fact checking.
This might be how they were able to convince Karla and her family to trust Hillary Clinton and enable the emotional moment in Nevada which eventually led up to her speech at the Democratic National Convention.
In all fairness though, one of the E-mails that is making the rounds, Wikileaks E-Mail: RE: New video: Trump isn't trying to bring people together 05/09/2016 is probably not as derogatory of Hispanics as some people make it out to be. The reference to "taco bowl engagement" is clearly a reference to Trump's tweet where he's eating a Taco bowl attempting to refer to his engagement efforts as incredibly incompetent, which as they know with their research it will be ineffective. However they're still attempting to use his incompetency for political reasons not for the best interests of Hispanics.
Betraying Karla and other Latinos for Political Reasons
Karla' speech to the Democratic National convention was a follow up of an event that happened after reporters left the room in Nevada and a recording of an event was made that was quickly turned into an ad as reported in Hillary Clinton released emotional ad to appeal Nevada Latinos (02/18/2016), where she tells Karla, "You don't have to worry about what happens to your mom and dad, or somebody else in your family. Let me do the worrying. I'll do all the worrying, is that a deal? I'll do all the worry. I'll do everything I can to help, OK?"
Now that this document has been revealed it is reasonable to assume that it might have happened as one of their outreach attempts and when it worked out so well it they may have pounced on it to use it as an ad. This isn't a guarantee; however it is reasonable speculation considering all the political manipulation that the Clinton Campaign has been involved in in the past going back to the "rapid response" team with James Carville and George Stephanopoulos, in 1992 her getting caught planting questions in 2008, and now an enormous amount of leaks from the DNC that show collusion with her campaign. If this isn't somewhat close to how they might have manipulated Hispanics there could easily be other manipulation methods, which is more likely after a simple check of a small amount of her record.
Hillary Clinton's record in Central America among other places as Secretary of State has been horrible for poor people as many stories including, Before Her Assassination, Berta Cáceres Singled Out Hillary Clinton for Backing Honduran Coup (03/11/2016), which shows that when the media isn't reporting widely her record against minorities, often for the benefit of corporate donors is atrocious; and there's plenty more reports where that came from.
Honduran children were among those forced to leave the country then after she left the State Department when Barack Obama was being criticized for being the deporter in chief she said, “We have to send a clear message, just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay. So, we don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.” (06/18/2014). This is of course the exact opposite of what she promised to Karla; and it is an example of how she responds when she's in power not campaigning. This is just one of many examples where she has a record of saying one thing during a campaign and doing another in power.
The Haitians didn't do any better as reported in High Hopes for Hillary Clinton, Then Disappointment in Haiti. (03/14/2016) Like most of her other complaints from poor people victimized by her policies it is only reported briefly in the traditional press while her positive propaganda is repeated over and over again, except for the complaints the Republicans focus on, which is often not nearly the most important parts of her record.
Similar manipulation tactics were almost certainly used to recruit African Americans, including the mothers of victims of police violence while she declines to look into the research on the root causes of violence and how it escalates as I explained in numerous previous articles including Media Suppresses Causes Of Orlando And Texas Shootings Again and Media Ignores Solutions For Both Police And Black Lives Matter. Recently she has called for gun control; however like most other issues this is a recent reversal of past positions when it suite her agenda at any given time. She supported background checks and the assault weapons ban as first lady but when running for campaigns at one time or another catered to gun right interests and has supported enormous amounts of weapons sales abroad including a lot that wound up in the hands of hostile regimes or terrorists.
As I explained in past posts, research shows that reasonable gun control is almost certainly a part of the solution but it is definitely not the only contributing factor and probably not even the most important one by far. The most important long term contributing cause to escalating violence including both the shootings of minorities by police and the shooting of police in retaliation is almost certainly child abuse and corporal punishment that teaches violence at an early age and escalates to bullying hazing and domestic violence later in life. Additional long term contributing causes to violence include income inequality, poverty, abandoned inner cities, lack of education and more, which I cited in the previous posts about the Orlando shootings and police shootings mentioned earlier. Addressing the long term contributing causes will protect both the police and civilians including minorities; however it is often against the ideologies of the political class that seems far more concerned about getting richer and maintaining control of the government and propaganda used to make decisions.
Regrettably many people may be slow to recognize this if they've been taught to respond to appeals to emotion from an early age; however if more efforts can be made to slowly teach the majority of the public all the details and encourage them to check facts then real solutions that reduce violence poverty, war and many other problems can be implemented.
Fortunately, as indicated during the protests in California, some Hispanics are already catching on to Hillary Clinton's scams like the Haitians that have been protesting her mishandling of donations to help their country. If they can do more to teach other Hispanics, eventually more of them will recognize Hillary Clinton for the political manipulator that she really is and if their own report is correct, "Hispanics never re-engage: Unforgiving," many Hispanics could be helpful in a reform movement that helps out their own people as well as the rest of the country.
In order to expand this it has to be done slowly at the grassroots level; or we need major reform so it can be done on a much larger scale if we can get help from a reformed political and media establishment that is acting in the best interests of all the public not just campaign donors.
Which may mean we have to throw the bums out of Congress and the White House!
At least one additional follow up to this article will come soon.
