IN A POLITICAL YEAR, WHY ISN’T THE WASHINGTON D.C. MURDER OF A DNC STAFFER, WHO DEALT WITH DNC DATA, BIGGER NEWS ?????
According to an up-to-date report on the internet muckraking rag, “Heatsreet” --- “Washington DC’s up-and-coming Bloomingdale neighborhood remains gripped by fear three week after the murder there of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich — with still no reported leads, suspects or arrests in the killing…. Rich was beaten, shot and killed early on the morning of July 8 while he was walking home and talking on the phone to his girlfriend. Police have said they haven’t determined if his murder was a botched robbery or something else. The killer or killers appear to have taken nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone…. DC’s Metropolitan Police Department tells Heat Street on Friday that there are “no updates” in the case. But while information from authorities may be scarce, the Internet has certainly taken Seth Rich’s story to some very dark places — despite no evidence to back up any of the reigning conspiracy theories….” (See “Still No Clues in Murder of DNC’s Seth Rich, As Conspiracy Theories Thicken” by Emily Zanotti, 7/29/16, Heatstreet.com [http://heatst.com/politics/still-no-clues-in-murder-of-dncs-seth-rich-as-conspiracy-theories-thicken/]).
Okay, let’s try “Snopes” for some conspiracy debunking or “factchecking”--- Rather than take you through all the weeds of its article, here’s the Snopes’ conclusion, as of 7/14/16: “…. While it's true police maintain an open investigation into Seth Rich's death, the claim connecting him to Hillary Clinton was the third of its sort to emerge from the same conspiracy-monger in mid-2016. All those rumors were variations on the long-circulating (and false) "body bags" claims that the Clintons habitually do away with once-loyal associates turned political liabilities. Prior to publishing the trio of Clinton-related fabrications, the same site and blogger held that President Obama had ordered the military to nuke the city of Charleston (which didn't happen), that Rear Admiral Rick Williams was fired because he revealed Obama's purchase of a mansion in Dubai (Williams was actually terminated for misconduct), and that Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama were enmeshed in a potentially conflict-starting dispute over the practices of the Monsanto agribusiness corporation.” (See “Seth Conrad Rich Homicide Conspiracy -- A conspiracy site latched on to the tragic murder of young DNC staffer Seth Rich to spread false information about his killing” by Kim LaCapria, 7/14/16, Snopes/ Fact Check, etc. [http://www.snopes.com/seth-conrad-rich#!]).
If you want a pretty good “here’s what you need to know” kind of article to get into the “facts” of this case, you could try this one from “Heavy”: (See “Seth Rich: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know” by Jessica McBride, 7/31/16, Heavy/ News [http://heavy.com/news/2016/07/seth-rich-dnc-voter-election-fraud-democratic-national-committee-wikileaks-murdered-shot-conspiracy-washington-clinton-data-analyst-emails/]).
I wouldn’t be putting all this up on my “Fountainhead” blog, except that so much doesn’t seem to add up in this story; and nobody in the MSM seems very interested. To me, it’s another case of a dog not barking…..
