A wise man once said, “The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”
That person also said, “Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you’re dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that party, you’re not only a chump, but you’re a traitor to your race.”
That someone is Malcolm Little, aka, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, aka, Malcolm X, who uttered those words more than 50 years ago.
My, how things have changed for the media and the Democratic Party over the last half century. Not!
A not-wise person said in October 2016 during a Rose Garden speech alongside Italian Prime Minister Renzi, “There is no serious person out there who would suggest that you could even rig America’s elections. … There is no evidence that that has happened in the past, or that there are instances that that could happen this time. … So I’d advise Mr. Trump to stop whining.”
That someone is Barry Soetoro, aka, Barack Obama.
Mr. Obama’s pompous, sanctimonious decree notwithstanding, the media and Democrats are saying that that is what happened this time. The day after Donald Trump’s victory, Hillary Clinton ordered her minions to claim that Russia rigged the election.
So, according to Barack Obama, Democrats and the media are not serious and they need to quit whining.
Oh, but they are indeed serious.
U.S. senator and Clinton’s vice presidential candidate, Tim Kaine, said in January, “What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress … fight in the streets…” Why? He lost. Trump won. That’s all.
The second of Barack Obama’s corrupt attorneys general, Loretta Lynch, said in February, “We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers. And it has been people, individuals, who have banded together. … They’ve marched, they’ve bled – yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is …”
But did they hold secret meetings on an airports tarmac?
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters embarked on a crusade before the inauguration to impeach Trump. That’s hatred.
The militant Democratic Party claims these are not calls to violence, just as they claim that Kathy Griffin’s severed Trump head prop and Snoop Dogg’s Trump assassination parody was art, First Amendment speech. But, these same lost, empty souls claim that Trump’s retweet of a CNN smackdown video is a call to violence against, and a threat to, the media. No First Amendment rights here.
Regarding that retweet, I like how CNN hunted for the video’s creator, finding him in one day to threaten him into making an apology (not 1933 Germany, yet), but still offer no evidence of Russia rigging the election after eight months of playing the same tune.
Even a failing New York paper printed a vague, cryptic retraction of the months-long mantra of “17 intelligence agencies” asserting that Russia tried to rig the election.
That same newspaper is being sued by Sarah Palin for its libelous editorial claiming she is responsible for a shooting in Arizona, a change of pace from its usual “the gun did” it indictment.
Shall I mention CNN’s countless known lies?
This is no longer funny or sad, but just downright pathetic. The Democratic Party and the American media are so evil that both are on a war against Donald Trump, and America be damned, using any means necessary because Trump won.
Remember, Obama did nothing regarding Russia rigging or Hillary Clinton selling Russia 20 percent of America’s uranium supply. If a foreign country rigged our election, why would the president of the United States do nothing?
Look, the FBI told the Democratic National Committee long ago that its server was the target of hackers. The DNC refused FBI assistance and its offer to examine its server. Yeah, well, server security and the Democratic nominee are synonymous.
The Democrats and the media colluded to rig the election for Clinton. Both failed. Both are incredulous Third-World entities. If you place credibility in either, you have been brainwashed.
