The Clin­ton me­dia ma­chine

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

The lib­eral me­dia ac­counts for more than 75 per­cent of Hil­lary Clin­ton’s ad­ver­tis­ing bud­get, re­fus­ing to air the email scan­dal, and de­struc­tion of ev­i­dence, her open bor­der pol­icy (dis­closed by the emails), her pay-for-play cor­rup­tion and her “pub­lic vs. pri­vate” po­si­tions on key is­sues.

Fur­ther taint­ing the pres­i­den­tial race and fur­ther­ing the Clin­ton cam­paign, the me­dia ag­gres­sively pur­sues only Don­ald Trump’s neg­a­tives. A re­cent New York Times front page ar­ti­cle im­plied that his tax fil­ings were not in or­der — how­ever con­ceded in small print that he did noth­ing il­le­gal.

Dur­ing the last week, the me­dia hyp­o­crit­i­cally ex­hausted con­sid­er­able re­sources on the al­leged abu­sive be­hav­ior from the ac­cusers of Don­ald Trump. The same me­dia, how­ever, re­fused to ac­knowl­edge Hil­lary’s at­tacks and threats on the sex­ual abuse ac­cusers of her hus­band, Bill; one for which he was im­peached and at least one other that he set­tled for $850,000.

Not only is the me­dia back­ing Hil­lary, but the Depart­ment of Jus­tice and the direc­tor of the FBI are close be­hind. Dur­ing tes­ti­mony on Capi­tol Hill, FBI direc­tor James Comey con­ceded that Hil­lary know­ingly de­stroyed clas­si­fied emails, and that only af­ter a 39-minute land­mark plea ne­go­ti­a­tion be­tween Bill Clin­ton and At­tor­ney Gen­eral Loretta Lynch (in the back of a plane) was it de­cided that for­mal charges would not be filed.

Per­haps most strik­ing is that last week, Hil­lary was re­quired by court or­der to an­swer 25 ques­tions un­der oath — at least 20 of those she re­sponded by stat­ing she “did not re­call.” Two of these ques­tions were whether she or­dered the de­struc­tion of ev­i­dence dur­ing a crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion and the pur­pose for which she cre­ated the pri­vate ser ver.

Both par­ties ac­knowl­edge that their can­di­date would not win a char­ac­ter de­bate, leav­ing us with only their plat­forms and is­sues to weigh — not the past, but the fu­ture of our na­tion at stake. Hil­lary stands for higher taxes, open bor­ders, par­tial birth abor­tions and the dou­ble stan­dard — not a higher stan­dard of ac­count­abil­ity. The Clin­ton ma­chine is purely an ag­gres­sive, so­cial­ist agenda. Trump stands for closed bor­ders, lower taxes, the end of Oba­macare (if it doesn’t fin­ish im­plod­ing first) and pre­serv­ing the Con­sti­tu­tion.

This elec­tion is more im­por­tant than any other for one main rea­son: while pres­i­dents come and go, the Supreme Court en­dures for­ever. Dur­ing the next pres­i­den­tial ten­ure, it is likely that three to four Supreme Court jus­tices will be ap­pointed. While we may not like ei­ther can­di­date, this coun­try was founded on the Con­sti­tu­tion to in­clude the Sec­ond Amend­ment and the right to keep and bear arms. Hil­lary has as­sured us that if she is elected, the Con­sti­tu­tion as we know it will no longer ex­ist.

A re­cent ex­cerpt from a post in this pa­per stated among other things, that “God for­bid, Trump be elected.” I am con­fi­dent that God will not be cast­ing for Hil­lary’s lib­eral poli­cies to in­clude abor­tions and gay mar­riage. They are clearly in con­tra­dic­tion to the word.

Please de­fend the Con­sti­tu­tion and pro­tect the United States of Amer­ica by vot­ing this elec­tion.
