Below is my embedded 12-minute video of Lee Camp’s exposé of the manufactured chaos of the Iowa Caucuses, plus his speculation about other dirty tricks the DNC may resort to, to subvert a Sander’s victory. The repost includes my complete transcript of the video, my added subheadings and highlighted text to facilitate a speedy grasp of key ideas, and some added hyperlinks.
As an aside, might Lee Camp sarcastically be mispronouncing “Buttigieg”? His name appears on the closed captioning as “Buddha-judge.”
Take note – Lee’s monologue is laced with expletives, including the f**k word.

Chaos in Iowa was no accident; evidence shows it was planned
Hey everybody. Welcome to Moment of Clarity. The mess that is going on in Iowa was not an accident. It was by design and we can now see that. There is evidence showing that this was planned. And I’m going to go through a lot of the different ways we now know what’s going on in Iowa. It’s fucking maddening. It is intentional chaos by —
… are all working together to try and undermine Bernie Sanders’ campaign in a million different ways. But what they’ve done in Iowa is beyond is beyond the pale. It’s fucking incredible.
The plan involved funnelling votes through a stealth app, appropriately named “Shadow”
First of all you have to realize that they knew that Bernie would do well in the Iowa caucuses. Traditionally, progressives do better in the caucuses where you have to stand up and be heard. Where you have to show your enthusiasm for your candidate. So what did the DNC do after 2016? They got rid of half of all caucuses in the primaries, okay. So the first two caucuses are Iowa and Nevada, both of which are supposed to use this fucking app — this Shadow app, okay. Because, what did the DNC realize after 2016? — They realized they couldn’t stop all of the caucuses. So, I [they] got an idea, let’s take the caucuses which are traditionally very public – you can watch them; you can see whether they are being counted correctly – let’s take them and funnel them through a shadowy app that no one can see whether it’s accurate or not.
And it’s literally named “Shadow”. I mean, at least lie to us a little better. Fucking name it the “Fluffy Puppy Dog”. Don’t name it fucking “Shadow”, you assholes.
FACT 1 – Buttigieg’s campaign gave $40,000 to a parent company that owns the Shadow app
This Shadow app, which is now responsible for NOT being able to report the Iowa results, is at least partially funded by Buttigieg’s campaign. They’ve spent over $40,000 in payments to the umbrella organization that own this app.
And this is not just small blogs talking about this Shadow app. This is from NBC News –
So they do mention those donations.
FACT 2 – Parent company was funded by Acronym, a Democratic political nonprofit venture, founded by Tara McGowan
They somehow failed to mention the Buttigieg campaign also donated over $40,000 to this app company. NBC continues –
FACT 3 – McGowan is a “MASSIVE Buttigieg supporter”
They don’t mention she’s a MASSIVE Buttigieg supporter. How do you leave that out? It shows the corruption. It shows that this is rigged. It shows that she is part and parcel with the Buttigieg campaign. The people that run the app — they’re supposed to give us the Iowa caucuses — are connected to the Buttigieg campaign. Oh yeah, NBC News, it just slipped their mind.
FACT 4 – Clinton’s former campaign manager helped create the Shadow app
According to the New York Times, it [the Shadow app] at least partially was created by Robby Mook, former campaign manager to Hillary Clinton. Robby Mook has said he did not have anything to do with the app. But who knows?
FACT 5 – Three of Acronym’s senior execs. worked on the “Hillary for America” campaign
It doesn’t really matter, because we do know that Shadow’s CEO, their product manager, their CTO and their COO (Chief Operating Officer), all worked on the Hillary for America campaign.
BOTTOM LINE – the Shadow app is “a Buttigieg and Hillary machine creation” designed to crash
So this app, used in Iowa is a Buttigieg and Hillary machine creation. And it [the Shadow app] was designed to collapse, to crash. And we’ll get into more of that in a second.
FACT 6 — Acronym CEO, Tara McGowan, was THRILLED Pete Buttigieg was running
So you say, well, just showing that Buttigieg’s campaign donated to this app’s parent company, that doesn’t really show that they’re in bed with Buttigieg or in bed with the DNC machine in order to stop Bernie Sanders. Well, how about this? The CEO of the company that owns the app, Tara McGowan, was THRILLED that Pete Buttigieg was running.
FACT 7 – McGowan is married to one of Pete Buttigieg’s strategists
In fact, [even] when he announced his exploratory committee, when no one knew who he was, no one had heard the name Pete Buttigieg, she tweeted out that she was SO EXCITED that Pete Buttigieg is running. You know why? Maybe it’s because she’s married to one of Pete Buttigieg’s strategists.
FACT 8 – Israel lobby group responsible for attack ads on Bernie has links to Shadow, Inc.
Furthermore, one of the 79 accounts that the Shadow Inc. follows is the dark money group that launched attack ads on Bernie last week – Democratic Majority for Israel.
Play-by-play account of “plan to completely collapse the Iowa caucuses”
Now let’s go through the play-by-play of how this plan to completely collapse the Iowa caucuses was perpetrated. First of all, if you know you’re going to not be able to announce the results in Iowa, you have to not have very good polls in Iowa, right? Everyone would just point to the polls and say Bernie Sanders was CRUSHING it. Well, what did they do?
1/ The Buttigieg campaign made sure that the main poll – the big poll right before the Iowa caucuses — did not come out. The Buttigieg campaign complained about the way the poll was done and so the poll was not released.
2/ Next you have to have the media not being able to give any results, which they succeeded in doing that by not really having any exit polls, not really having any numbers for our media to go on. So our media sat around with their thumbs up their ass going – “We have no idea what’s happening in Iowa.
3 Next step – you declare victory — whether you’ve proven to have won or not. Pete Buttigieg literally declared himself victorious without ANY information coming from the Iowa Democratic Party. And, in fact, here are Bernie’s internal numbers from the Iowa caucuses.
He [Bernie] got 28.62% of the delegates, Buttigieg got 25.71%, Warren 18.42% and Biden 15.08%. So Buttigieg, likely, DID NOT WIN – Almost definitely did not win. But he declared victory because he’s the Juan Guaidó of America. Buttigieg is absolutely Juan Guaidó. As you recall, in Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, who, 80% of the country had never heard of, declared himself president without actually running for president. The US then declared him president even though, as I might have mentioned, HE DIDN’T RUN FOR PRESIDENT!
But, as with Juan Guaidó, most of America’s like “What the fuck did you just say? Did you just declare victory in a race with no results, even though you were losing.” And, luckily, even Willie Geist on MSNBC saw the need to call this out.
THE DUPLICITOUS MR. BUTTIGIEG
Geist — Tell me about your decision last night to go out and claim victory. You went up on the stage and said we were victorious here tonight. What did you base that on?
Buttigieg – Well we were looking at the internal numbers that we had and beginning to realize that something extraordinary had happened last night. I mean here you have a campaign that was really questioned when we first got in for whether we even ought to be here, whether we belonged in this race. And to not only establish that, but to reach the position that we did was a clear victory for this campaign.
Geist – So, not based, though, on anything you had heard from the state Democratic Party for example?
Buttigieg – No. We don’t have anything from the party, at least. I know that you [MSNBC] wouldn’t have heard as well.
[Lee Camp screams] Oh my God. MSNBC just said something truthful. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? Buttigieg looks like a damn fool. Okay? And, furthermore, he’s military. We know that, right? He’s very proud of the fact that he’s military, but he’s likely CIA as well. As John Kiriakou, CIA whistleblower has said, some of Buttigieg’s flight schedules in the past – such as the fact that he flew to small African countries, that are very difficult to get to, for one day seem to say he’s some form of intelligence agent.
3/ Next step – in this plan to destroy the Iowa caucuses so that Bernie Sanders cannot get the standard bump from said caucuses, well, you have the media move on. They’ve got other stuff to talk about, right? In fact I checked CNN this morning – this is hours after the Iowa results were supposed to come in – and it was filled with nonsense. They had like one article on how the Iowa caucus results hadn’t came in. And then the rest [of the news] are just nonsense news stories. They’re, like, MOVE ON – that was yesterday. Who even remembers Iowa?
In fact, to quote NBC: “Although we’re supposed to get results later today, the reporting and technological mess from the state party has resulted in a total wash.”
It’s like Iowa never happened. Especially with tonight’s State of the Union Address, tomorrow’s final impeachment trial vote, and the campaigning in New Hampshire already taking place. There you go folks. Don’t even worry about Iowa. Don’t worry that Bernie Sanders with like zero positive media coverage managed to win the Iowa caucuses, is going up against the entire DNC machine. Don’t worry about that. Don’t worry about the fact that Joe Biden is fully and completely collapsing. He doesn’t have money. He doesn’t have people coming out to his events. He got 15% in a caucus he should have easily won – Don’t worry about it. That was yesterday. Let’s move on with our lives.
4/ By the way, this carefully created, full-on chaos in Iowa serves another purpose too. A future purpose. The DNC desperately wants to get rid of caucuses because they support progressive candidates. So already, today, hours after the Iowa caucus has happened, they’re saying it’s time to get rid of the Iowa caucus. They’re already doing that. The mainstream media’s running with that. Here’s one headline:
R.I.P. the ‘First-In-the-Nation’ Iowa caucuses (1972-2020)
5/ “RIP the Iowa caucuses.” This was carefully constructed and it serves many purposes. It undermines the Bernie campaign, and makes sure that Bernie cannot get the bump that he should have gotten from winning Iowa. It undermines the idea of the Iowa caucuses in order to get rid of these things where they can’t be easily rigged. They don’t go through black box machines. People have to stand up and be seen. You can see whether there’s a million Bernie supporters standing over there, and 4 fucking Biden supporters. You can see that with your eyes. This allows the candidates that would have been punched in the face from these caucuses – Amy Klobuchar, Biden, maybe to some degree, Elizabeth Warren – it allows them to stay in the race, to act like this never happened, we’re all still going strong. And now, let’s get Bloomberg in there. Let’s get the billionaire who has bought his way into the fucking Democratic race.
6/ And keep in mind, this is not over. We’re headed to other states for this primary process where there’s other ways of rigging it – there’s black box machines, unaccountable computers – they are doing everything to rig this against the one progressive candidate [Bernie] — at least if you’re talking within the Democratic party, running as a Democratic candidate — that actually is in the top tier. Okay? The only one. They’re doing it to rig it against him.
People have to ask themselves – What are we going to do when the exact same thing happens this year that happened in 2016? We all saw it coming. We maybe didn’t know that they were going to be as blatant as to create a fucking app called Shadow. Maybe we thought they might have a little better sense than that. But here it is.
7/ We all knew it was coming – in California they’re going to force provisional ballots on anybody who’s not a steadfast, Democratic party voter. And that’s going to be how they try and rig that one.
Everybody needs to pay attention. Wake up. Fucking be ready. What is your next step as this happens?
