Eating Their Own: The Clinton Wing’s Elevation Of Kai Kahele

How The Establishment Retaliated Against Tulsi Gabbard By Endorsing Her Opponent

by Robbie Jaeger, Medium, Oct 25, 2019

If you have paid any attention whatsoever to the political discourse in the last week, you undoubtedly know at least one thing: Hillary Clinton and Tulsi Gabbard do not like one another…. Clinton alluded to Gabbard being “groomed" as a Russian asset. As you can imagine, this didn’t sit well with the Congresswoman and National Guard Major. Gabbard fired back with a series of tweets and a video, taking Clinton to task on her foreign policy record….. The aftermath of the exchange has very quickly brought out the full force of a very much alive Clinton-wing of the establishment left. Their response has been strategic and cutthroat — the Democrats have decided to Primary one of their own. To make sure that is goes their way, they need elevate her congressional opponent, Kai Kahele.

So that’s exactly what they’re doing.

Within two days of the public mudslinging between Clinton and Gabbard, a short, 10 second ad was released over the internet that took advantage of the recent and, quite frankly, baseless accusations hurled at Gabbard regarding her allegedly being a vessel of Putin’s message. The ad, produced by Party Majority PAC, was a clip of Tucker Carlson jokingly asking Gabbard “Are you a Russian sleeper cell?”, to which Gabbard laughed (after a slight satellite delay). The clip was accompanied by a message urging supporters to help get Tulsi Gabbard out of Congress and  to  support  her primary opponent, Kai Kahele.

Party Majority PAC, a PAC/SuperPAC hybrid, was started by a man named Adam Parkhomenko, who also started Ready for Hillary PAC in 2013. Ready for Hillary was a SuperPAC whose sole purpose was to draft Hillary Clinton into the 2016 election — which of course she entered. He is very much tuned in to establishment circles, as evidenced by the program to the Ready for Hillary 2013 conference, attended by the likes of David Brock, Ace Smith (of SCRB Strategies), and President of Hart Research, Geoff Garin.

As soon as Gabbard called out Hillary Clinton, Party Majority PAC, which was used to promote Donna Shalala in 2018, was weaponized against the Congresswoman from Hawaii. However, there is a pervading sense of irony about it all.

Party Majority PAC has only taken in a reported amount of around $22,000 in this cycle, but a quick look to 2018 tells a different story. Party Majority PAC took in over $300,000 in the previous cycle, with almost 25 percent coming from two donors:

1 -- CC1 Companies — CC1 is a beverage company that claims Coca Cola Puerto Rico Bottlers as a subsidiary. CCPRB is the largest non alcoholic beverage distributor on the island. CC1’s founder, Carlos de la Cruz is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. CC1 gave $50,000 to Party Majority PAC in 2018

2 -- Patricia Cloherty — Cloherty got her start working with Democratic mega-donor Alan Patricof at his investment firm, Patricof & Co., in the late sixties. After serving on various committees under administrations dating back to Jimmy Carter, Cloherty became a board member of the US-Russia Investment Fund — a program through which the US Government would make investments in the Russian economy. Cloherty eventually left to become the CEO of Delta Private Equity Partners, the financial wing of the aforementioned US-RIF. In 2008, she received the Order of Friendship from Russian President Vladimir Putin. Cloherty, like de la Cruz, is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. She gave Party Majority PAC $25,000 in 2018.

Yes, you read that correctly. The SuperPAC pushing the narrative that Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian asset has literally taken money from a woman who won the Order of Friendship from Vladimir Putin for all of the money she made for (and from) Russian businesses. Let that sink in.
