As the Iowa caucus results fail to come in promptly amidst “inconsistencies” in results according to Democratic officials in the state, exasperated voters wonder who to assign the blame toward for this surreal debacle.
The answer may be former Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, who was used for quality control in the lead up to the Iowa caucus.
The Des Moines Register explained the crack team that was put together to prevent any sort of shenanigans heading into the crucial night:
They worked with campaign experts Robby Mook and Matt Rhodes — as well as experts in cybersecurity, national security, technology and election administration — and simulated the different ways that things could go wrong on caucus night.
Mook, 2016 campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, and Rhodes, Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign manager, helped develop a public-service video to alert campaigns to the warning signs of hacking and misinformation.
Mook has already taken to social media to deny having anything to do with the calamity that has made the Democrat Party to an even bigger laughingstock than it was before:
Sorry, folks. I did NOT have anythjng to do with building the Iowa caucus app. I dont know anything about it, had no role in it, and dont own a company that makes mobile appa. Please contact @iowademocrats with questions about it.

However, Mook may be trying to deflect blame that he has rightfully earned. Mook helped to found the Defending Democracy Project (D3P) and served on their team to protect election integrity with other establishment officials.
Eric Rosenbach, formerly the Chief of Staff to Secretary of Defense Ash Carter from 2015-2017 in the Obama administration, was tapped to lead the D3P project. Their press release noted that “Rosenbach recruited Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, and Matt Rhoades, Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign manager, as Senior Fellows and co-leaders of the initiative.”
“Over the last two years, nearly every election on both sides of the Atlantic has been affected by foreign cyber attacks, including Hillary Clinton’s in 2016,” said Mook, blaming the Russian interference canard for the failure and incompetence of his own campaign.
The Des Moines Register noted that Mook’s firm was brought on board by “both parties in Iowa and their app and web development vendors” to “develop strategies and systems to protect results and deal with any misinformation.”
After tonight’s debacle, the Clinton presidential loss in 2016 may become the second biggest political embarrassment that Mook can claim responsibility for.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
