Under our Nov. 21 post, “They expected to be ‘discussing access,’” John Taylor comments:
I’ve got to admit, I love it.
The pollsters lied, the media lied, Hillary lied, America elects Donald Trump president, and the media respond by . . . lying some more7:53 pm November 9th, 2016
I labored in the newspaper business for 40 years. I started out driving the delivery truck. I broke front-page stories as a twenty-something reporter at my first small-town daily in Willimantic, Connecticut, eventually working my way up to become an editor and then a 20-year columnist and editorial writer at a major metropolitan daily.
If Donald Trump were currently the subject of multiple, concurrent, ongoing investigations by both the FBI and the New York Police Department – investigations into a likely organized long-running conspiracy to bribe a federal official to the tune of tens of millions of dollars; illegal use of a non-profit foundation to generate millions in income for his family; illegally accepting campaign contributions from foreign governments; obstruction of justice by lying to federal investigators and ADMITTEDLY deleting and “scrubbing” thousands of emails after they’d been subpoenaed; selling out this country and its resources to foreign powers for personal enrichment; violation of security protocols by federal officers so repeated, so blatant, and so severe that the FBI is now “99 percent sure” official government secrets were “hacked” off unsecure private e-mail devices in his possession and in the possession of his chief aide and in the possession of that chief aide’s disgraced and sexually perverted spouse where they should never have been placed, possibly endangering U.S. operatives overseas as well as the lives of helpful defectors who trusted America to protect them, to the point where some are now actually bruiting about the word “treason” . . . investigations which we’re told are “likely to generate indictments and arrests . . . SOON” — yet he was considered likely to be elected president of the United States in three days, giving him the power to PARDON HIMSELF AND ALL HIS ACCOMPLICES — how do you suppose the American Mainstream press would be acting?
So, let me get this straight. The main thrust of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign is not that she favors “open borders” with unlimited illegal immigration including a greater number of violent jihadi Muslim gang-rapists and mass murderers than are now terrorizing France (although she does.) The main thrust of her campaign is not that she wants to continue the “giveaway” globalist trade and economic policies that are reducing America to jobless, Third-World economic status (although she does.) The main thrust of her campaign is not that she left Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American to die in Benghazi in 2012 rather than risk revealing why she and Barack Obama had sent them there, which was to illegally sell captured Libyan arms to the ISIS rebels in Syria (although she did.)
CNN, the Clinton News Network, reported on Oct. 30 “Hillary Clinton on Saturday questioned FBI Director James Comey’s decision to write to congressional leaders about emails uncovered in the bureau’s probe into Anthony Weiner, saying the timing of such a move was ‘unprecedented’ and ‘deeply troubling.’
First, before our major post of the day, a note on presidential polling:
Since it will reportedly take weeks for FBI agents to search the hundreds of thousands of Huma Abedin e-mails found on the home computer of her disgraced husband, former congressman and accomplished “sexter” Anthony Weiner (now that they have a proper warrant, so what they find can be used in the many separate prosecutions likely to result), the professional talkers of 24-hour “news” television are left to babble and shout at each other, speculating on what may or may not be found.
