When Will Democrats Demand Sen. Al Franken, (D-MN) Resign His Seat After Photo of Him Groping Woman and Charges of Assault are Raised?

Will Dems apply the same standard to Franken that they demand for Moore?

Bad enough Dems covered up for Bill Clinton despite the evidence of Monica's blue dress. More on that in the post below.  They always seemed to find an excuse for Clinton's predatory behavior. What excuse will they use this time?

Here's Al Franken in 2006 groping a sleeping woman and the story of how he forced the woman to kiss him.


Is Al Franken "unfit for office?"

Sen. Medendez (D-NJ) Sex with underage prostitutes!

And what about Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) who is on trial for corruption is also implicated in the sex trade.  Federal prosecutors describe credible allegations that Menendez cavorted with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. Is Menendez fit for office?

While Republican leaders have publicly and loudly denounced Roy Moore in Alabama based on allegations from 40 years ago you won't hear ONE DEMOCRAT leader demand that Franken or Menendez resign or suggest Bill Clinton should lose his federal benefits. Tell me again which party is engaged in a war on women?

P.S. Media coverage of Roy Moore's scandal got 40 times the coverage of Menendez's trial. The coverup continues!

Place your bets: Will the mainstream liberal media cover Franken's crime or cover it up?


Bill and Al Franken. Two peas in the pod!

  • Franken joked about drugging and raping CBS's Leslie Stahl! Franken has a history of joking about sexual assault on women.
  • Bernie Sanders: Men fantasize about abusing women. Women fantasize about being raped!

Bernie Sanders and Al Franken sharing rape fantasies?
Here's what Bernie said about women: "she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously."

Bernie Sanders rape fantasy.  Two peas in the pod!
Let me know when the above gets anywhere NEAR the level of hysterical news coverage as Alabama's Roy Moore!

P.S. Al Franken jokes about incest, rape and pedophilia.

I'll Dump Roy Moore in Alabama When Libs Revoke Bill Clinton's Pension and Office Allowance!

Bill Clinton is accused of rape. Until the left takes that seriously enough to DO something about it their complaints about lesser charges against Moore are empty and hollow!

An interesting thing has happened in the past few days. Major left media has suddenly discovered their original sin by covering up for Bill Clinton all these years. A big story in the Atlantic "Bill Clinton: A Reckoning," was followed by one in the New York Times: "I Believe Juanita" about the charge that Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick.

Both articles refute the adamant long held liberal belief that Bill Clinton was not the sexual predator that his accusers made him out to be. The Atlantic article even dredges up the Clinton defense by feminist icon Gloria Steinem who wrote in the New York Times in 1998:
"It's not harassment and we're not hypocrites." Sorry Gloria, GUILTY on both counts!
Steinem went so far as to exonerate Clinton in the assault on Katleen Wiley:
“Even if the allegations are true, the President is not guilty of sexual harassment. He is accused of having made a gross, dumb, and reckless pass at a supporter during a low point in her life. She pushed him away, she said, and it never happened again. In other words, President Clinton took ‘no’ for an answer.”
The other women, mostly from Arkansas had become the focus of ridicule and personal attacks by the Clinton machine.

But now, after all these years Michelle Goldberg writing in the New York Times says:
Of the Clinton accusers, the one who haunts me is Broaddrick. The story she tells about Clinton recalls those we’ve heard about Weinstein. She claimed they had plans to meet in a hotel coffee shop, but at the last minute he asked to come up to her hotel room instead, where he raped her. Five witnesses said she confided in them about the assault right after it happened. It’s true that she denied the rape in an affidavit to Paula Jones’s lawyers, before changing her story when talking to federal investigators. But her explanation, that she didn’t want to go public but couldn’t lie to the F.B.I., makes sense. Put simply, I believe her.
Bill Clinton with Kevin Spacey.  Two peas in the pod!
At Vox, Matthew Yglesias writes that "Bill Clinton Should Have Resigned" after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke. Yet at the time the left defended him with absolute fervor. Why the change now? Is it just an attempt to say the rules have changed and now we must apply this standard to Republicans like Moore, or even Trump? Meanwhile, Bill Clinton is still collecting over $200,000 in annual pension and $1,000,000 in office expenses. I have yet to hear one of these Moore bashers suggest this should be taken away.

If Democrats are truly serious about holding politicians accountable then they will lead the charge to revoke Bill's pension and office. They should also demand a special prosecutor to investigate other Clinton wrongdoing. Anything less means their attacks on Moore and other Republicans are just more of the political hypocrisy for which they have been found GUILTY all these years!

Something Rotten in Claims GOP Senate Candidate Moore Dated Underage Girls: Accuser Worked for Democrats!

The same bunch that bought and paid for a phony dossier accusing Trump of colluding with Russia wouldn't stop at manufacturing a hit piece on a candidate in Alabama!

After one of these bombshell media reports surfaces it usually takes a few days before the REAL story comes out. Same here in the attempt by Democrats to smear the GOP candidate in the special election for the Senate seat in Alabama.

First the accusations that Roy Moore dated younger women, even the uncorroborated charge that one was as young as 14.  Now we learn that one of the accusers worked for Democrats. Here's Debbie Gibson:

With Hillary


Vice President Biden


And Moore's Democrat opponent


That's just the short list. Gibson has quite a history working for Democrats and the photos to prove it.

Excuse me, but was ANY of that mentioned in the articles damning Moore? Not a word. In fact, the Post story which started it all denied that Gibson had ever worked for Democrat challenger Murphy.

Moore has been a statewide candidate many times and been a judge.  Now, surprise allegations from nearly 40 years ago surface at the last moment?

If you can't smell the dirt in this smear you need to see a doctor!

Sad Mitt Romney Gets in the Act

Failed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney joined other weak kneed Republicans like fellow failed presidential contender John McCain in denouncing Moore. Romney said "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections." How good of you Mitt. Readers may recall Romney had his own experience with Democrat smears when he said he had "binders full of women." Perhaps he should have left the campaign then too. Then there's McCain' extra marital affair that led to the dissolution of his first marriage. Perhaps he should resign too!

Establishment Democrats and Republicans are desperate to keep Moore and any true conservative from rocking the boat in Washington. Moore better hire a body guard as there is nothing they won't do if you get in their way. Just ask former DNC head Donna Brazile why she feared for her life!

Trump Got Royal Treatment in China and South Korea Visit

Each stop on his trip, allies and hosts are affirming their desire to work with Trump and honoring him in the process!

It must make the left livid. The world doesn't hate President Trump at all!  In fact, world leaders appear to like him much more than Obama?  Don't believe me?  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Here's Obama forced to deplane from Air Force One in China by the back stairs. Described by one observer as being forced to "go out of the ass’ of Air Force One." This is after years of Obama kowtowing to China. That obsequious behavior was treated with contempt by the Chinese who admire strength in leadership.



Here's how Trump arrived in Beijing:


Followed by a visit to the Forbidden City with their hosts:


Then a huge welcome in Tienanmen Square:


South Korean President: Trump 'is already making America great again'

The welcome in South Korea was also grand. Dinners and ceremony were mixed with Trump's speech to the South Korea's National Assembly:


Trump's speech was Reaganesque. He talked about the ravages of war, the alliance with South Korea then drew a direct parallel to the failures of communism as observed in the North to the prosperity that comes with freedom.
TRUMP: Much of this great city of Seoul was reduced to rubble. Large portions of the country were scarred -- severely, severely hurt -- by this horrible war. The economy of this nation was demolished.

But as the entire world knows, over the next two generations something miraculous happened on the southern half of this peninsula. Family by family, city by city, the people of South Korea built this country into what is today one of the great nations of the world. And I congratulate you. (Applause.) In less than one lifetime, South Korea climbed from total devastation to among the wealthiest nations on Earth.

Today, your economy is more than 350 times larger than what it was in 1960. Trade has increased 1,900 times. Life expectancy has risen from just 53 years to more than 82 years today.
...
The Korean miracle extends exactly as far as the armies of free nations advanced in 1953 -- 24 miles to the north. There, it stops; it all comes to an end. Dead stop. The flourishing ends, and the prison state of North Korea sadly begins.

Workers in North Korea labor grueling hours in unbearable conditions for almost no pay. Recently, the entire working population was ordered to work for 70 days straight, or else pay for a day of rest.

Families live in homes without plumbing, and fewer than half have electricity. Parents bribe teachers in hopes of saving their sons and daughters from forced labor. More than a million North Koreans died of famine in the 1990s, and more continue to die of hunger today.

Among children under the age of five, nearly 30 percent of afflicted -- and are afflicted by stunted growth due to malnutrition. And yet, in 2012 and 2013, the regime spent an estimated $200 million -- or almost half the money that it allocated to improve living standards for its people -- to instead build even more monuments, towers, and statues to glorify its dictators.

What remains of the meager harvest of the North Korean economy is distributed according to perceived loyalty to a twisted regime. Far from valuing its people as equal citizens, this cruel dictatorship measures them, scores them, and ranks them based on the most arbitrary indications of their allegiance to the state. Those who score the highest in loyalty may live in the capital city. Those who score the lowest starve. A small infraction by one citizen, such as accidently staining a picture of the tyrant printed in a discarded newspaper, can wreck the social credit rank of his entire family for many decades.

An estimated 100,000 North Koreans suffer in gulags, toiling in forced labor, and enduring torture, starvation, rape, and murder on a constant basis.

In one known instance, a 9-year-old boy was imprisoned for 10 years because his grandfather was accused of treason. In another, a student was beaten in school for forgetting a single detail about the life of Kim Jong-un.

Soldiers have kidnapped foreigners and forced them to work as language tutors for North Korean spies.

In the part of Korea that was a stronghold for Christianity before the war, Christians and other people of faith who are found praying or holding a religious book of any kind are now detained, tortured, and in many cases, even executed.

North Korean women are forced to abort babies that are considered ethnically inferior. And if these babies are born, the newborns are murdered.

One woman’s baby born to a Chinese father was taken away in a bucket. The guards said it did not “deserve to live because it was impure.”

So why would China feel an obligation to help North Korea?

The horror of life in North Korea is so complete that citizens pay bribes to government officials to have themselves exported aboard as slaves. They would rather be slaves than live in North Korea.

To attempt to flee is a crime punishable by death. One person who escaped remarked, "When I think about it now, I was not a human being. I was more like an animal. Only after leaving North Korea did I realize what life was supposed to be."

And so, on this peninsula, we have watched the results of a tragic experiment in a laboratory of history. It is a tale of one people, but two Koreas. One Korea in which the people took control of their lives and their country, and chose a future of freedom and justice, of civilization, and incredible achievement. And another Korea in which leaders imprison their people under the banner of tyranny, fascism, and oppression. The result of this experiment are in, and they are totally conclusive.

When the Korean War began in 1950, the two Koreas were approximately equal in GDP per capita. But by the 1990s, South Korea’s wealth had surpassed North Korea's by more than 10 times. And today, the South’s economy is over 40 times larger. You started the same a short while ago, and now you're 40 times larger. You're doing something right.

Considering the misery wrought by the North Korean dictatorship, it is no surprise that it has been forced to take increasingly desperate measures to prevent its people from understanding this brutal contrast.

Because the regime fears the truth above all else, it forbids virtually all contact with the outside world. Not just my speech today, but even the most commonplace facts of South Korean life are forbidden knowledge to the North Korean people. Western and South Korean music is banned. Possession of foreign media is a crime punishable by death. Citizens spy on fellow citizens, their homes are subject to search at any time, and their every action is subject to surveillance. In place of a vibrant society, the people of North Korea are bombarded by state propaganda practically every waking hour of the day.

North Korea is a country ruled as a cult. At the center of this military cult is a deranged belief in the leader’s destiny to rule as parent protector over a conquered Korean Peninsula and an enslaved Korean people.

The more successful South Korea becomes, the more decisively you discredit the dark fantasy at the heart of the Kim regime.

In this way, the very existence of a thriving South Korean republic threatens the very survival of the North Korean dictatorship.

This city and this assembly are living proof that a free and independent Korea not only can, but does stand strong, sovereign, and proud among the nations of the world. (Applause.)
...
In 2005, after years of diplomacy, the dictatorship agreed to ultimately abandon its nuclear programs and return to the Treaty on Non-Proliferation. But it never did. And worse, it tested the very weapons it said it was going to give up. In 2009, the United States gave negotiations yet another chance, and offered North Korea the open hand of engagement. The regime responded by sinking a South Korean Navy ship, killing 46 Korean sailors. To this day, it continues to launch missiles over the sovereign territory of Japan and all other neighbors, test nuclear devices, and develop ICBMs to threaten the United States itself. The regime has interpreted America’s past restraint as weakness. This would be a fatal miscalculation. This is a very different administration than the United States has had in the past.

Today, I hope I speak not only for our countries, but for all civilized nations, when I say to the North: Do not underestimate us, and do not try us. We will defend our common security, our shared prosperity, and our sacred liberty.

We did not choose to draw here, on this peninsula -- (applause) -- this magnificent peninsula -- the thin line of civilization that runs around the world and down through time. But here it was drawn, and here it remains to this day. It is the line between peace and war, between decency and depravity, between law and tyranny, between hope and total despair. It is a line that has been drawn many times, in many places, throughout history. To hold that line is a choice free nations have always had to make. We have learned together the high cost of weakness and the high stakes of its defense.

America’s men and women in uniform have given their lives in the fight against Nazism, imperialism, Communism and terrorism.

America does not seek conflict or confrontation, but we will never run from it. History is filled with discarded regimes that have foolishly tested America’s resolve.

Anyone who doubts the strength or determination of the United States should look to our past, and you will doubt it no longer. We will not permit America or our allies to be blackmailed or attacked. We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. We will not be intimidated. And we will not let the worst atrocities in history be repeated here, on this ground, we fought and died so hard to secure. (Applause.)

That is why I have come here, to the heart of a free and flourishing Korea, with a message for the peace-loving nations of the world: The time for excuses is over. Now is the time for strength. If you want peace, you must stand strong at all times. (Applause.) The world cannot tolerate the menace of a rogue regime that threatens with nuclear devastation.
The speech deserves to be seen in it's entirety. It's a stunning contrast with the weak failed moral equivalence of the Obama years and a reiteration of the most effective formula for avoiding war: PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH!

Next to Vietnam and Meeting with Putin

Trump talked tough on trade at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) CEO Summit in Vietnam. But he also found time for some meetings with other world leaders. This photo is sure to rile Trump haters:


While Trump was in Vietnam, First Lady Melania, who was a star on the red carpet at every event took some private time for a tour of the Great Wall before heading to Alaska to visit U.S. troops. Shown leaving one of the guard houses Melania walked along the ramparts:


Thus far, Trump's foreign trips have all been a tremendous success. Whether it was in Saudi Arabia, Poland or Asia the world is welcoming renewed American leadership and allies join the refrain: Make America Great Again!

Trump Election Anniversary: One Year Ago the World Changed for the Better!

Watch the full CNN broadcast if you want to relive the moment liberals loathe!



What a night that was. Watch as talking heads on CNN once certain of a Hillary victory face a new reality. They've been unhappy and unhinged ever since.

Back to this year, hysteric sore losers will take the streets to scream at the sky today as if that will help. But while they engage in yet another in a year long orgy of senseless anger and futility I'll be thinking of Henry Davis who posted this on You Tube the day after the election:



The video above is the perfect antidote to the bile being passed around on this anniversary by the hate filled left



Happy Trump Anniversary!

New Twist in Obama/Hillary Uranium Scandal. Russians Controlled U.S. Uranium AND Exported It

Another example of how Russian influence during the Obama years is fact, not fiction!

So, we had some left wing commenters who only recently discovered Russia as a strategic threat defend the Obama/Hillary Uranium One deal. The same deal which allowed the Ruskies to corner the market on world supplies of uranium.  These Russian/Obama apologists insisted that no uranium had left the United States.  Not exactly.

From The Hill by John Solomon:
After the Obama administration approved the sale of a Canadian mining company with significant U.S. uranium reserves to a firm owned by Russia’s government, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission assured Congress and the public the new owners couldn’t export any raw nuclear fuel from America’s shores.

“No uranium produced at either facility may be exported,” the NRC declared in a November 2010 press release that announced that ARMZ, a subsidiary of the Russian state-owned Rosatom, had been approved to take ownership of the Uranium One mining firm and its American assets.

A year later, the nuclear regulator repeated the assurance in a letter to Sen. John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican in whose state Uranium One operated mines.

“Neither Uranium One Inc. nor AMRZ holds a specific NRC export license. In order to export uranium from the United States, Uranium One Inc. or ARMZ would need to apply for and obtain a specific NRC license authorizing the exports of uranium for use in reactor fuel,” then-NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko wrote to Barrasso.
The NRC never issued an export license to the Russian firm, a fact so engrained in the narrative of the Uranium One controversy that it showed up in The Washington Post’s official fact-checker site this week. “We have noted repeatedly that extracted uranium could not be exported by Russia without a license, which Rosatom does not have,” the Post reported on Monday, linking to the 2011 Barrasso letter.

Yet NRC memos reviewed by The Hill show that it did approve the shipment of yellowcake uranium — the raw material used to make nuclear fuel and weapons — from the Russian-owned mines in the United States to Canada in 2012 through a third party. Later, the Obama administration approved some of that uranium going all the way to Europe, government documents show.
...
Rather than give Rosatom a direct export license — which would have raised red flags inside a Congress already suspicious of the deal — the NRC in 2012 authorized an amendment to an existing export license for a Paducah, Ky.-based trucking firm called RSB Logistics Services Inc. to simply add Uranium One to the list of clients whose uranium it could move to Canada.

The license, reviewed by The Hill, is dated March 16, 2012, and it increased the amount of uranium ore concentrate that RSB Logistics could ship to the Cameco Corp. plant in Ontario from 7,500,000 kilograms to 12,000,000 kilograms and added Uranium One to the “other parties to Export.”
...
The United States actually imports the majority of the uranium it uses as fuel. In 2016, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 24 percent of the imports came from Kazakhstan and 14 percent came from Russia.
Note that last paragraph. The Obama Administration gave Russia control of U.S. uranium and in so doing is even more dependent on Russian produced uranium. How is that wise? But it gets worse...
Government officials told The Hill that the NRC was able to amend the export license affecting Uranium One because of two other decisions previously made by the Obama administration as part of a Russian “reset” in President Obama’s first term.

First, Obama reinstated a U.S.-Russia civilian nuclear energy cooperation agreement. President George W. Bush had signed the agreement in 2008, but withdrew from it before it could take effect after Russia became involved in a military conflict with the former Soviet republic of Georgia, a U.S. ally, and after new concerns surfaced that Moscow was secretly aiding Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions.

Obama re-submitted the agreement for approval by the Democrat-controlled Congress in May 2010, declaring Russia should be viewed as a friendly partner under Section 123 the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 after agreeing to a new nuclear weapons reduction deal and helping the U.S. with Iran.
...
The other step that allowed uranium from the Russian-controlled mines in the United States to be exported came in 2011, when the Commerce Department removed Rosatom, Uranium One’s owner, from a list of restricted companies that could not export nuclear or other sensitive materials or technologies without special approval under the Export Administration Regulations.
...
The Uranium One deal has been controversial since at least 2015, when The New York Times reported former President Bill Clinton received a $500,000 speech fee from a Russian bank and millions in donations to his charitable foundation from sources interested in the deal around the time the Uranium One sale was being reviewed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s State Department and eight other federal agencies.
...
The entire Uranium One episode is getting a fresh look after The Hill disclosed late last month that the FBI had gathered extensive evidence in 2009 — before the mine sale was approved — that Rosatom’s main executive in the United States was engaged in a racketeering scheme that included bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering.

The probe was enabled by an undercover informant working for the FBI inside the Russian nuclear industry, court records show. But the Justice Department did not make that evidence public until 2014, long after Rosatom benefited from multiple favorable decisions from the Obama administration.
...
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a member of both the Senate Intelligence and Judiciary committees, told The Hill she would like to learn more about what the FBI knew.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) has criticized Republicans for investigating Clinton, but said on “Morning Joe” last month he has "no problem looking into" the Uranium One deal.

And Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) said Sunday on CNN that he believed it was appropriate for Congress to investigate the new information.

If Russians Wanted Trump to Win Why Did They Place Facebook Ads Trashing Him After Election?

Or did Hillary and the Dems coordinate those ads with Russia?  Appoint a Special Prosecutor!

You've heard the nonsense that a handful of Facebook ads prior to the election critical of Hillary were paid for by Russians and somehow that was proof that Russia and Trump colluded to win last November.

OK, if Trump really was "Putin's Puppet" then why would the Russians then place ads on Facebook critical of Trump?

Politico has the story of the Senate hearing where internet big wigs were called to testify on the issue and revealed this information.

The entire Russia-Trump hoax was a fabrication from the get go when Hillary's campaign paid Russians through Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to deliver false information about Trump.  This latest revelation shows just how silly that fake news still is!

Obama "Diversity" Migrant Brings Death and Terror to New York

Nothing proves the danger and idiocy of Obama's open border policy better than the terror attack in New York City!

Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review asks:
How many people must die before it becomes in vogue to speak that truth – that when you bring the Middle East to your shores … you bring the Middle East to your shores.
While technically not from the Middle East, the Uzbeki terrorist who killed eight people in New York and injured a dozen others came from a part of the world that is deeply stained by the blood of radical Islam. We should have known better than to give him a visa and along with that welcome in his family. But he was part of the "lottery" for green cards called "diversity visas" that was designed to make sure that we invited enough people from the world's remote trouble spots to create a terrorist fifth column in the United States. How many more of these attacks by migrants and refugees will it take before we wake up?



Democrat Chuck Schumer Sponsored Diversity Legislation.

In 1990, then Congressman Chuck Schumer sponsored the legislation which formed the basis for the Diversity Visa Program. Thinking back a few months to where now Senate Minority Leader Schumer cried because Trump was demanding more thorough vetting of refugees [video].

Uzbeki terrorist who benefited from the Diversity Visa Program sponsored by Chuck Schumer!
Schumer taking credit for diversity lottery: "As I ride my bike around New York City on the weekends I see what immigrants do for our country!"

What do you bet Senator Schumer will be skipping that bike ride this weekend!

Manafort Indictment Nothing to Do w/ Trump Russia Collusion

After a year of Trump Russia hysteria and this is the best they can do?

Here's the PDF of the indictment of Paul Manafort: https://www.justice.gov/file/1007271/download

The document is 31 pages long. There is NOT ONE MENTION of Donald Trump or his campaign for President or any hint of collusion between the campaign and Russia. It's all about work Manafort did years ago in regard to Ukraine. Nothing at all to do with Trump.

Now, if the new standard of guilt is anyone who has ever done business with Ukraine, or even Russia by that matter, a much more recent case of Bill Clinton taking $500,000 for a speech in Moscow comes to mind but we'll let Mueller decide whether that applies.

Sorry Trump haters. Christmas (ooops, can't call it that can we) festivus or kwanza did not come early. It's Halloween and you went to Mueller's door and he's handing out apples instead of candy!

Major News Networks Still Covering Up for Hillary and Attacking Trump. Imagine Trump's Success if Coverage were Fair

Shouldn't we ask whether Hillary is guilty of treason?

Remember the sheer level of hysteric coverage of the Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian to discuss opposition research on Hillary?  The news broke this summer and the airwaves were filled with reporters, commenters and Democrats all shouting "TREASON."  One talking head said "this isn't a smoking gun, it's a smoking cannon."  See the montage here.

But then, as they often do, the facts slowly caught up with the manufactured hysteria and we learn from the actual memo prepared by the Russians for the meeting with Don Jr. that there wasn't much dirt being slung by the Russians. They just used that to gain access to push other policy objectives that are of little interest. Certainly nothing like the revelation that it was the Clinton campaign and DNC that funded a Russian dirty tricks smear operation that even infected the FBI and CIA.

But the media went berserk over Don Jr.'s news and basically swept the Hillary bombshell under the rug:


In all, there has been over a thousand minutes of Trump-Russia collusion stories on the major networks.  If placed on the graph below the amount of time networks spent discussing Hillary's scandals would barely show up.


Imagine how well Trump could advance his agenda if reporting of these various scandals were "fair and balanced?"  But that's exactly why the reporting is not. More evidence, not that any were needed, of a biased and corrupt media that will cover up wrongdoing by anyone with a (D) after their name.

What if the opinion of NY Post columnist David Harsanyi were given equal time in newsrooms across the country:
HARSANYI: Now, you might expect that the scandalous revelation of a political campaign using opposition research that was partially obtained from a hostile foreign power during a national election would ignite shrieks of “collusion” from all patriotic citizens. After all, only last summer, when it was reported that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer who claimed to be in possession of damaging information about Clinton, there was widespread condemnation.

Finally, we were told, a smoking gun tied the Trump campaign to Vladimir Putin. Former Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine went as far as to suggest that the independent counsel begin investigating treason.

Treason! Trump Jr. didn’t even pay for or accept research.

The Clinton crew, on the other hand, did. They didn’t openly push the contents of the dossier — probably because they knew it was mostly fiction. Instead, Fusion GPS leaked it to their friends in the media.
...
the dossier didn’t just awaken the Russia-stole-our-democracy narratives in the media. It’s just as likely that the dossier was used by Clinton’s allies in the government.

The Obama administration reportedly relied on the dossier to bolster its spying on US citizens. We know of at least one case where the information was used to justify a FISA warrant on a Trump adviser. And let’s not forget that Steele had reached an agreement to be compensated for his efforts by the FBI.
...
And at some point, Democrats will have to decide whether it’s wrong for a political campaign to work with foreigners when obtaining opposition research or whether it’s acceptable. We can’t have different standards for Democrats and Republicans.

Otherwise people might start to get the idea that all the histrionics over the past year weren’t really about Russian interference at all, but rather about Hillary losing an election that they assumed she’d win.
But of course we do have different standards for Democrats and Republicans.  Democrats know it and they use it to their advantage. Sadly, too many Republicans think that the best counter is to play nice and hope the media will treat them well. Just ask John McCain how that worked out in the 2008 presidential election!

P.S. Media Bias Mirrors Prosecutor Bias

As a final proof for our media bias narrative consider how the media would react if prosecutors of any potential Hillary wrongdoing included major donors to Trump and Republican campaigns. Keep the following fact in mind over the next few days:
