Ok. So now that all the Thanksgiving leftovers have been consumed and most of us are probably hitting the gym again, it’s time to talk about Hillary Clinton. I’d like to never talk about her again, but like Michael Myers, she just keeps coming back, and back, and back.
I’m sorry now to admit that when I first saw the photo at the top of this post, I felt pity (but not compassion) for that woman. She’s a self-involved individual who’s spent her entire life pursuing power, and President-elect Donald J. Trump just handed her the most stunning defeat of her lifetime, made worse by the fact that a fawning press, her minions, and word on the street all said she was a shoo-in. Together, they made her fall that much more spectacular (and arguably more pitiful).
Schadenfreude? Yeah, I felt that, too; but not because of “low self-esteem,” as that article suggests. Instead, I felt it because Hillary Clinton represents a very real threat to her opponents and, more importantly, to our country. We simply could not take another 4 to 8 years of Obama-like “fundamental transformation” of our Republic.
We should have known better than to believe that Hillary and her minions, or especially her financer and puppeteer George Soros, would accept this loss gracefully and, as progressives like to say, “Move on.”
(Allow me to interject: Remember Hillary’s campaign slogan, “I’m with her?” Is it coincidence that the late Fidel Castro forced Cubans to say or to post signs affirming, “I’m with Fidel?” What is it with progressives that they seem driven to borrow Communist slogans? Forward? Anyway …)
Now comes word that Hillary and her minions, her lawyers, her operatives, have been planning and plotting all along, from November 9, to try to “steal” the election from President-elect Trump or at least to undermine his forthcoming administration, using ginned-up post-truth, “fake news” alleging Russian-rigged or hacked election results, “theft” of the election from the woman who “won” the “popular vote,” and cries that Trump’s an “illegitimate president,” a la the 2000 election. You may ask,
What difference, at this point, does it make,
since Hillary has already conceded the election? And since the Obama administration has already avowed that there’s no evidence whatsoever of Russians (or anyone else) hacking into the election results? Since it’s never happened that anyone successfully overturned an election where the loser lost by so many votes? Since even Hillary’s people say there’s no evidence to suggest any need for recounts?
It makes plenty of difference for those who stand to see 40 to 50 years of their progressive scheming go down the tubes. Not to mention the risks they face if President Trump decides to start turning over rocks even as he drains the swamp that is Washington DC. This is their Hail Mary pass. Their Custer’s Last Stand.
Other reasons for this stunt may be to draw out the recount processes specifically to miss deadlines and to potentially deny Trump the electoral votes that he fairly won in any or all of the contested states, or to provide a pretense for “faithless electors” to vote for Clinton instead of Trump. Or perhaps even to force the House of Representatives or the courts to make the call, thus further undermining, in their opinion, Trump’s legitimacy.
For months, we had to listen to Hillary tell us that Donald Trump was temperamentally unfit for the presidency. Take a good look at that photo, above, and tell me that she’s fit to deal with an existential threat to our nation at any time, much less at 3 a.m.
Thank you, Hillary Clinton, and all your whining, crying female supporters, for setting back women’s equality a hundred years! Does your behavior not play right into that stereotype that women have battled for decades? The one that claims that women are “temperamentally” unsuited for political office, because they’re too emotional?
Sources have told The American Spectator that on Tuesday night, after Hillary realized she had lost, she went into a rage. Secret Service officers told at least one source that she began yelling, screaming obscenities, and pounding furniture. She picked up objects and threw them at attendants and staff. She was in an uncontrollable rage. Her aides could not allow her to come out in public. It would take her hours to calm down. As has been reported for years, her violent temper got the best of her. Talk about having a temperament ill-suited for having access to the atomic bomb. So Podesta went out and gave his aimless speech.
Let’s talk post-truth and fake news. The mainstream media are hyping this meme, this false narrative, that the Russians may have hacked into electronic voting machines and/or that the Russians interfered in and influenced the results of our election by producing propaganda in the form of “false” stories that were picked up and spread via social media, bloggers, and “alt-right” news outlets, who acted, at best, as “useful idiots” or pawns of the evil Russians.
However, there’s no evidence of hacking, as admitted by Barack Obama and his administration’s cybersecurity apparatus as well as by Hillary’s own people. What a spectacular fail that would have been for Obama had he allowed a foreign country to hack our election!
As for alleged “fake news” (the propaganda angle), that in itself appears to be fake news. Take a look at the stories cited as “propaganda” and untrue. The useful idiots, it’s alleged
repeatedly ran fake or inflammatory stories about Clinton’s health, the election being rigged, and protesters being paid to protest Trump.
What’s going on here? Reports about Clinton’s poor health were based upon truth. They weren’t “fake” stories. Online videos provide plenty of evidence of her fragile health (e.g., coughing fits, needing to lean on something while standing, relying on stools or chairs, crossed eyes, apparent seizures. The videos are on You Tube. Believe the evidence of your own eyes, not these fake stories in the mainstream media).
As for protestors being paid to protest Trump, that was admitted to, on video, by employees of Hillary’s campaign or her supporters! (It’s on You Tube. Believe the evidence of your own eyes and ears.) There were even mainstream media stories about that truth.
Note, however, that the article cited above left itself an out. In the category of alleged Russian propaganda, the author includes this caveat: fake “or inflammatory stories.” One person’s inflammatory story is another person’s revelatory story. It all depends upon your point of view, doesn’t it?
Yet the mainstream media like to pretend that they have no particular point of view (aka bias). While the mainstream media, almost all in the tank for Hillary Clinton, would have liked to suppress the truth about Hillary’s poor health as well as the revelations about the dirty tricks her supporters played at Trump rallies, it’s obvious that, because of social media and the alternate media, the mainstream media no longer have the ability to control the “news.” All that’s left, at this point, is for them to try to discredit their competitors via allegations that they’re pawns of the Russians, racists, bigots, or stupid. In other words, by promoting fake news and post-truth narratives.
If this election should have taught the mainstream media anything, it’s that the American people are not stupid, are not useful idiots and are, in fact, much more perceptive than the mainstream elites would like to believe.
A lack of evidence hasn’t stopped the mainstream media from repeating this false narrative, this evidence-free allegation, this post-truth meme that Russian propaganda lost the election for Hillary. Why? Because the meme is helping to set the stage for Hillary’s attempt to steal the election or, at least, to undermine Trump’s presidency.
Numerous stories reported that a team of “experts” discovered anomalies in election results from “battleground states.” This was the “evidence” they have hung their hats on, with regard to reporting on the alleged justification for recounts.
Another team of so-called expert, but anonymous, “independent researchers” created this false narrative about Russian propaganda influencing the election. Ironically, one particular story is the source of the propaganda about Russian propaganda. Most mainstream stories cited this one article (this one propagandist, one might say) and so those who picked up the meme could be said to have served as “useful idiots” for that author. His story was certainly “useful” to Hillary Clinton, and anyone who still opposes Trump’s election.
Another meme propagated throughout the mainstream media claims that Hillary Clinton has a “historical” lead in the popular vote. Yesterday, President-elect Trump pointed out, correctly, that if one subtracts from her total the millions of illegal aliens who voted, then he would have won the popular vote in a landslide, as he won the electoral votes in a landslide.
The mainstream media were quick, and typically wrong, to state (in every story that I read) that Trump has “no evidence” that illegal aliens voted. But he does!
A group of experts, a group of “independent researchers,” have proven (based on verified evidence and upon self-reports, in many instances) that millions of illegal aliens are registered to vote and did vote in 2008 and 2010. Others claim that an estimated 3 million illegal aliens voted in the 2016 election. These illegal aliens overwhelmingly vote Democrat.
It’s seems likely to be true that millions of illegals voted, given that Barack Obama encouraged them to vote and that many states allow illegal aliens to register to vote and prohibit election workers from asking anyone for proof of citizenship.
Obviously, because the mainstream media universally claim that there’s “no evidence” that millions of illegals vote in our elections, they would label these researchers’ work as “fake news” and “post-truth” narratives. One writer, in fact, calls this Trump’s “biggest lie” ever. (So much for respect for the office.)
It remains to be seen how the mainstream media treat the real news that True the Vote, another well-known and well-respected group of experts, backs up Trump’s claim that millions of illegal aliens voted in the 2016 election:
True the Vote absolutely supports President-elect Trump’s recent comment about the impact of illegal voting, as reflected in the national popular vote. We are still collecting data and will be for several months, but our intent is to publish a comprehensive study on the significant impact of illegal voting in all of its many forms and begin a national discussion on how voters, states, and the Trump Administration can best address this growing problem.
Dueling experts. A truly unbiased and objective mainstream media would report the results from all participants and let We the People decide. That, however, is exactly what they do not want to do, as the mainstream media has become an arm of the Democrat/progressive propaganda machine (as proved by Wikileaks).
In the opinion of most mainstream media elites, the people cannot be trusted to make up our own minds. Just see what happens when We the People decide:
