The mainstream media reported that the Democrats at the Iowa "Liberty and Justice" fundraiser in Des Moines SOLD 13,000 tickets. Really? A video analysis, beginning at the 8:25 mark, reveals that number is laughably absurd and, in reality, no more than about 1000 tickets were sold for that event.

A little birdie told me that streets were closed off within over a mile of the venue beforehand.  Yet Friday night traffic was lighter than normal despite that "massive throng".

I'm sure various PACs and donors bought blocks of tickets in a sort of grey-market money-laundering deal.

Yep, tickets sold is not the same as people in seats. Might have been some union purchases as well as PACs and wealthy donors.

On their website I saw a statement regarding several platters of free mini tacos.
Then-Chief Justice John Marshall observed, “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”

John Adams warned in a letter, “Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”
