Introducing Rodneyse Bichotte, the new leader and money bundler of the Democratic Brooklyn Machine


Five years after she joined the state Legislature, Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte (D-Brooklyn) is all but set to take over the cash-strapped Kings County Democratic Party.

And she’s bringing with her a campaign fundraising record unusually prolific for a junior lawmaker — fueled, in part, by donations from groups her bills have aided.

Bichotte pulled in more cash than all but one Brooklyn Assembly Democrat in the first half of 2019 — beating out 17 other lawmakers, many of them senior to her, with a haul of $112,095 in an off-election year.

Overall, Bichotte had $411,702 in her campaign coffers as of July. The party she’s expected to soon lead, meanwhile, has only $32,833.95 in the bank, state filings show.

Key to her numbers are entrepreneurs who benefit from her actions as chair of the Assembly’s minority- and women-owned business subcommittee. She’s also drawn support from anesthesiologists battling to preserve their place in the operating room and players in Brooklyn courthouses with a stake in the county Democrats’ nods for judgeships.

Bichotte, who would become the first black woman to head a county Democratic party in the city, told THE CITY that repairing the group’s finances is essential — and she vowed to pursue “big donors and small donors.”

“I’d certainly like to raise money for the county to help our candidates, to help the Democratic Party,” said Bichotte, who became the first Haitian-American elected to the New York state Legislature when she arrived in 2015.

“I’m very particular about making sure that the treasury is healthy for the purpose of helping out candidates and also getting more civilians more engaged and included in our processes,” she added.

She was also the only elected official in New York to endorse Mayor de Blasio's farcical presidential run

One way to solve this cash problem is to check out Frank Seddio's offshore (my guess, the Caymans) account.

Translation - you wanna play, you gotta pay.

Shouldn't that be illegal, assuming that it's not? Sounds a lot like outright bribery. But it's not surprising given the dirty deeds done by NYC Democrats.

Actually is bribery.

ALAS, they are ALL a filthy, crooked, criminally insane cabal of hyper-corrupt, entrenched, and establishment-rigged, party-machine-failed ‘Monetary Locusts,’ ALL of whom are seasoned corporate cocksuckers (without a gag reflex), and a pathological, treasonous, traitorous, tyrannical SCOURGE of un-American, ANTI-American JUDAS traitors, whose ONLY Pledge of Allegiance that these voracious, predatory and RAPACIOUS thieves (of flag, country and Constitution), have EVER recited is the SAME, diabolical Oath of Predatory Evil that is likewise recited RIGHT BACK from their corporate masters of outright ownership, when they arrogantly (and, PROUDLY!) exhort:

‘Don’t Blow MY Scam—And, I Won’t Blow YOURS!’ And, the ever languishing public be eternally duped, bilked, scammed and damned!


❝People spend so much time mocking President Donald TRUMP, or waiting for him to be impeached. And, the danger with that kind of obsession with a single person is that you don't see the system that produced him.❞ —Arundhati Ray, Indian novelist, human rights and environmental activist

You gotta wonder how much money TRUMP has, if he is able to hire the entire Democratic Party to run his reelection campaign!

Republican agenda: Cutting funding for social programs, privatizing everything to create taxpayer funded profit centers for a handful of people, destroying workers' rights, refusing to increase the minimum wage. Bottom line, doing anything that benefits the many. That's the Republican agenda.

But, when was the last time that the Democrats really fought for a program that benefited the many? They've had all kinds of excuses for not fighting for them (the Republicans wouldn't allow it) and all kinds of excuses for voting for the destructive Republican legislation, but when it comes to down to fighting for We, the People, they're missing in action.

Voting doesn't take inspiration, and you cannot vote yourself out of a rigged and corrupt system. The game is rigged, and the only people still excited about our system and voting to their heart's content are all of the public fools who are still asking themselves what life is about
Democrats aren't anti-war. They're very much pro-war and McCarthyites which actually makes them right of the Republicans in some areas. Someone pointed that out in a thread.

But, those same conservative religious people would be against the government helping the needy and that's a Republican position. To quote Sister Simone from Nuns on the Bus, charities cannot raise enough funds to reach all of the people in need which is why the government needs to help as well.

❝One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.❞ —Carl Sagan

ALAS, today's America has become EVERYTHING that Hitler wanted his Germany to be: a fascist nation that holds the entire world at gunpoint. A nation where there are no free elections, the multinational corporations have merged into a few giant conglomerates cornering the market and calling the shots, and where the media are entirely controlled by the state, as the government spies on its citizens and the police terrorize them, in perpetuity!

MOREOVER, the DemonRat stooges of the DNC (Does Not Care - about democracy!), went to court to defend how their kleptocratic membership is a Private Corporation that does not have to follow their OWN rules, so ALL Primary rigging is perfectly legal, and NOT against the law, to present day effect!

When did a private corporation seize control of YOUR vote and YOUR voice? OR, have corporations ALWAYS controlled YOUR vote AND YOUR VOICE?
