Defense In Motion

Over a week ago, I was prepared to say I had given up on even the remotest idea of Hillary ever being held accountable. It seemed the one thing we can count on today beside taxes is Hillary walking away. Not much public confidence in justice out there.

Then came word that Durham’s office was staffing up and already conducting interviews. Then came DOJ’s announcement that Barr was doing a broad investigation. (I do like the term broad in there) And he said he was examining CIA. All right then.

So now I see a little hope in an otherwise bleak tunnel. What is there to base that hope on? I have no answer, just asking. I guess we have to hang on for the long ride, again.

Along comes the duck and cover media. George Stephanhoopla does an interview with Trump. He asks the only thing they care about — the whole reason for the interview. Suppose someone from a foreign government offers you information , would you (A)take it or (B)call FBI? So only two choices? Well, Trump said maybe you do both. Immediately the buzzers declare “wrong answer.”

Media also claims that type of information pedaling can influence elections and “undermines our democracy.” Then can we have any country left after what Hillary did? We know the details of what she did, no need to dredge through all that.

I’ll be darned, a whole interview to get that plus a new AF-1 design? But that’s all the press needed. It happens to be the same time Donald Trump Jr is speaking to the Senate, again, on that very subject. That’s not the only coincidence for George’s question of the year.

We can see a foundation forming for the defense of Hillary “the rotten” Clinton. That question is the critical predicate of it. Have everyone agree taking information is bad, calling FBI is the only answer. Then they will say that is what Hillary’s campaign did.

That defense is almost laughable after everything she did. But it is supposed to get her off the treasonous hook. (taking foreign information is treason) It is more than a defense for Hillary; it’s one for intelligence and everyone else too. So when they get nailed, they can claim to be working or cooperating with FBI, intelligence and the investigation. Media will then call them all heroes not traitors. Yep, that’s their defense coming down the pike.

Actually, George Stephanopoulos’ interview could be labeled opposition research. Though at what point in all this does press’s information pedaling become treasonous?

Media in Meltdown Mode

First we had Brian Williams in liar-gate and now the steaming fresh George Stephanopoulos ‘donation derriere-gate’. But what is the message, other than media is not the responsible organ of public trust it ought to be? Media seems to be in a meltdown.

It makes an overall statement of lamestream’s credibility — right, it has none. More importantly to the point, what is the error it committed? They knew the track record and who these guys were when they negotiated and signed these mega contracts.

Breitbart: (Stephanopoulosis worse than Williams)

“Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer argued George Stephanopoulos’ behavior is worse than Brian Williams’ on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

Earlier, Schweizer said … “He certainly knew that he had donated to the Clinton Foundation and he also knew that — as I lay out in the article, he had participated in all these events. I mean, we’re not just talking about George Stephanopolous’ time — his money. We’re also talking about his time.

Does the MSM think a huge contract is going to change who they are? Does creating a nice job around them change anything?

Let’s take it a step further. The Clintons are perfect examples. Do we think the money or prestige of a large charitable foundation, in their name, is going to change who they are? Put some more lipstick on that pig. Was making her Secretary of State? Is running for president? Of course MSM knows who these people are and so do we. They are who they’ve always been.

So what is the shock and consternation from the media corporates? They knew what they were getting. Most of us saw the red flags when Stephanopoulos first surfaced as a media mogul. Sure they can install George at the head of a division or anything else, but guess what? He is still George Stephanopoulos — not wonder boy, Mediatron. Progressives love to reinvent themselves, they do it all the time, but it doesn’t change who they are.

Now we’ll have the debate, controversy about Brian Williams coming back. That gave me an idea. Why not put him back on journalism and embed him in Hillary Clinton’s campaign on the road? Between the two of them they would be able to create some of the best alternative reality we’ve ever heard. And that might be just the thing to kick start Hillary’s campaign. It would make for the most fascinating air-brushed coverage to draw the viewers, too. It’s the best of both worlds, media and politics, which in their case are pretty much the same thing. But they would know what they are getting.
