ELDER PATRIOT – Yesterday was another day when Hillary Clinton misrepresented the truth and/or flat out lied. And, the Clinton Media Machine refused to question the veracity of her claims.
Last night Clinton charged Trump with a history of “racial discrimination in his businesses.” Mrs. Clinton never offered any evidence and the members of the media that were present never asked for any. They just dutifully reported it as fact.
Fact: Trump’s record of minority hiring and advancement is beyond impressive as any number of Blacks and Hispanics who work for the Trump Organization have attested to. This is especially true when contrasted with the failed liberal policies Mrs. Clinton has spent her lifetime in politics advancing and that now finds more Blacks living in poverty than ever before.
Mrs. Clinton knows that people are beginning to realize that the policies she has supported had been deliberately developed to create a plantation mentality within the Black community. She now finds herself reduced to accusing her critics who see the failing schools, run down housing, high crime rates, and the lack of opportunity as a travesty for a government that will spend $4 trillion dollars this year on other things by charging “people who look at the African-American community and only see ‘poverty, crime, and despair are missing so much.’
Trump has aggressively reached out to the Black community promising them a full chance to participate in the opportunities other Americans enjoy rather than to continue advancing the same destructive programs that have undermined their children’s education, destroyed their nuclear families, and crippled their work ethic.
Someone should be asking the lily-white press corps that’s traveling with Mrs. Clinton why they are satisfied with her obvious satisfaction with the plight of our Black brothers and sisters?
Then there was her appearance earlier in the day when Clinton told Israeli TV Donald Trump’s followers are violent racists and Trump is inciting them to violence.
Not one sycophant thought it might be worth asking her how the only violence – including death threats – throughout the entire campaign has come from the leftists who are aligned against Trump and, therefore, who stand in support of Mrs. Clinton.
There hasn’t been a single report of Trump’s followers showing up at Clinton campaign stops to protest in any way. There’s not been a single flag burning – not even of a communist flag – by Trump supporters.
The only incidences of violence coming from Trump’s supporters that the media can point to was some minor over-reaction to leftist protestors who had infiltrated Trump rallies and were confronted by those in attendance.
One can only wonder what the reaction of the media would’ve been if someone had stormed a stage that Mrs. Clinton was speaking from with the intention of assassinating her as happened to Trump a few months ago?
Still earlier in the day, Mrs. Clinton criticized Donald Trump for praising Soviet President Vladimir Putin:
“Meanwhile, bizarrely once again, he praised Russia’s strongman Vladimir Putin, even taking the astonishing step of suggesting that he prefers the Russian president to our American president. Now, that is not just unpatriotic and insulting to the people of our country, as well as to our commander in chief. It is scary because it suggests he will let Putin do whatever Putin wants to do, and then make excuses for him.”
The media’s blanket acceptance of this assertion would be laughable if it weren’t hiding the Clinton-Obama dangerously failed Soviet policy.
This single question would’ve exposed Hillary for everyone to see:
Mrs. Clinton, please tell us how our relationship with the Russian government could possibly get worse than they are now under a Trump presidency? And, what would you say if a President Trump authorized the sale of 20% of our uranium stockpile to
The fact is Trump would do no one any favors by poisoning his future relationship with the Russian leader before he even meets him. There is much common ground from which a constructive relationship might be established.
When Ronald Reagan met with former General Secretary of the Communist Party Mikhail Gorbachev he said:
“I couldn t help but say to Mr. Gorbachev just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from another planet. We d find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together”
We now have that common enemy, radical Islamic terrorism.
There was also this disingenuous statement made by Mrs. Clinton only minutes earlier:
“He trash-talks American generals, saying they’ve been, quote, “reduced to rubble.” He suggested he would fire them and replace them with his hand-picked generals. He attacked dozens of former flag officers by saying that, quote, “We’ve (sic) been losing for us for a long time.”
Mrs. Clinton was generously granted a pass on that claim when no one in the press corps asked her if Obama’s generals weren’t handpicked after the president purged our military of virtually all of it’s previously established leadership.
At the time retired Army Major General Paul Vallely to warned Americans: “Absolutely every communist regime on the planet did this as soon as they got in power.”
The generals now in charge have not only failed to close out the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for 13 years but have led us to additional conflicts in Syria, Libya and Yemen.
The generals now leading our military have failed in their missions. Whether it was their poor strategy or a failure to execute properly they have proven unsuccessful. If their hands were tied by President Obama then, as patriots, they should’ve came forward and let the American people know that they were joining the 88 generals who stepped forward earlier this week to endorse Trump only because he’s willing to take a fresh approach.
This would not be unlike Abraham Lincoln who ran through generals during the Civil War like clean underpants until he settled on the ones who could get the job done.
It’s growing increasingly difficult to fathom just how low the mainstream media is prepared to sink in support of Madam Hillary.
