Liberal media, it’s time for you to take down Bill Clinton

Published

Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes, Harvey Weinstein, Bill O’Reilly, Kevin Spacey, Roy Moore, Louis C.K., George Takei, John Travolta. This is a hefty list of very powerful men in Hollywood, the media, and politics who have been accused of or taken down by the new wave against sexual assault. I’m certain there is much more to come, and I have no problem with it. Let’s clean out all the rat’s nests. But wait… aren’t we missing someone? Isn’t it curious that absent from this list is one very major public figure?

Before you go making excuses about statutes of limitation or letting elders live out their remaining years, let me remind you that Cosby’s assaults happened in the mid 60’s. Juanita Broaddrick’s story happened in 1978. Let me also remind you that Broaddrick’s rape allegation sounds a lot like a Harvey Weinstein tale: He asked her to come up to his hotel room, multiple witnesses corroborated her story, and he used power and intimidation to keep her from talking to authorities. Why then, hasn’t President Clinton been publicly shamed like all the others? Who is protecting him?

To the media on the Left

The motivation to bring down one of your biggest champions should be to prove that nobody is above the law in a civilized society, especially when it comes to sexual conduct. But because he is so revered, let me offer you this carrot instead: If you take down Bill, you can take down Donald.

How we got here

Here, where giants like Cosby, Weinstein, and O’Reilly can be brought down but sitting presidents cannot, was established in 1997. The precedent was set by the liberal media when they gave the most powerful man in the country a free pass when Kathleen Willey first alleged sexual assault while Clinton held office in 1997. Now that we are dealing with similar circumstances from the Republican Party, they want to renege on that free pass. I do too. But it starts with righting the first wrong. It starts with their side taking down Clinton before the public will take them seriously.

Going forward

Think of it this way, news media… You established the strike zone back in 1997. Bill Clinton was at bat. He already had two strikes against him from Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones. But when Monica Lewinsky threw a fastball that caught the inside corner, you called it a ball and let him walk. Now that Donald Trump is at bat, you want to call strikes on the inside corner again. While we agree those are strikes and should have always been called as strikes, you can’t start calling them strikes again until you call them on Clinton first. It was you who established this strike zone. It’s up to you to make it right.

    I agree, but I am not holding my breath either.

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat (again) because the Republican was mean (again)

Arizona Republic endorses Democrat again because the Republican was mean again

Mainstream media, or should we say “meanstream media,” has been in the process of lurching to the left for a while. Even Fox News, while backing the President, often rails against conservatives while embracing moderate Republicans who practice Democratic orthodoxy. That’s not everyone at Fox News, but some prominent show hosts really love to align in the center.

The Arizona Republic, which was counted on for a while to lean right during elections, made a shift in 2016 by endorsing Hillary Clinton. Now, they’re going to the left of Clinton by endorsing far-left Democratic Socialist Kyrsten Sinema. Her 9% Liberty Score makes her by far the biggest leftist in the state. Now the Arizona Republic wants her to be their next Senator.

It isn’t just her voting record. Her ideas are extremely dangerous for America and particularly a southern border state like Arizona:

Kyrsten Sinema’s dangerous ideas do not belong in the Senate

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/12/kyrsten-sinemas-dangerous-ideas-not-belong-senate/There’s a very distinct difference between defense of personal freedoms, a conservative staple, and desiring no repercussions for people who intend to kill Americans. As with many far-left activists, they don’t care about the lives of others if they don’t agree wholeheartedly with their worldviews.

This wasn’t the only statement getting Sinema into hot water with voters.

The paper’s endorsement of Clinton in 2016 can be chalked up to the Trump effect that hit many conservatives in their funny bone. It should be noted that I didn’t endorse nor vote for Trump, but I definitely didn’t endorse or vote for Clinton. My write in vote wasn’t even running. Oh, if only Thomas Sowell had stepped away from academia to lead the country for eight years, but I digress.

When the paper goes for two leftists in a row, we can call it a trend. With Sinema in particular, there needed to be a tremendous excuse that allowed the editorial board to abandon any sense of conservatism and embrace the far-left socialist values she has espoused her entire adult life.

Nope. Their excuse is as weak as anyone could possibly imagine:

Arizona newspaper backs Democrat in dead heat Senate race

https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/412432-the-arizona-republic-backs-sinema-in-dead-heat-senate-raceRather than pointing to particular policy positions in the endorsement, the editorial board pointed to how the candidates have handled themselves during the race.

“We need to get back to a saner time, when senators didn’t call each other names — or if they did, they could put it all aside after the vote and go get a beer together,” the paper’s editorial board wrote. “There is too much ‘us and them’ in D.C., and it hurts how we are governed.”

“The real Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema know that,” the board argued. “But Sinema is the only one willing to say it (repeatedly) from behind her mask.”

The editorial board argued that McSally has gone further than Sinema in attacks on her opponent.

The paper tries to justify their decision by claiming McSally is center-right (which she is) and Sinema is center-left (which she is not). One needs only to look at her 9% Liberty Score to realize she’s the most radical representative in Arizona. It’s not even close.

Thomas Sowell nails the fact versus feelings problem

There are many reasons why Thomas Sowell is my favorite conservative thinker. This ideas resonate so clearly with the right mindset. His arguments are practically irrefutable.

This particular quote from whoever runs his Twitter account rings so true today. Mainstream media’s programming has affected both the left and the right, but this component of their onslaught on leftist sensibilities is arguably the biggest problem with the progressive movement today.

Hilarious video: Bombshell, the beginning of the end, walls closing in, the tipping point

Hilarious video Bombshell the beginning of the end walls closing in the tipping point

Most leftists remember it like a previous generation remembers when they heard JFK was killed. It was the moment they realized Donald Trump would become President of the United States. Since then, mainstream media has been incessant in their proclamations that his days are numbered.

Perhaps it’s comforting to them to continuously hear about how the latest bombshell means it’s the beginning of the end because the walls are closing in on a presidency that has reached a tipping point. Or something.
