Quotation of the Day

From Holman Jenkins, Jr. in today’s Wall Street Journal:

Democrats run on character assassination, as Mr. Obama also did against Mitt Romney, rather than frankly own up to a rent-seeking, social-engineering, Big Government agenda that voters reject when it’s presented plainly to them.

Exactly. So let's stop talking about p**** and talk about the Democrat agenda to enslave us all to their donor class and pursue their murderous rampage toward their phony notion of "equality," which is really the weaponization of bureaucratic socialism.

Nothing Hillary says sticks to her in the mainstream media, so I'm treating Donald's past as the past, too. After all, one of Hillary's favorite escapes is "That was a long time ago..."

If you watch Trump's rallies, he is on message. But the media doesn't want to talk about his message, because they know it will resonate with a lot of Americans. So instead, we talk about p****.

So... give it right back to them. Refuse to engage in the character assassination attempts. Just throw it back in their face: "That was a long time ago..." or "I don't recall..." or "There was no controlling legal authority..."

The media narrative is: Trump's a jerk. Okay. And who is Hillary Rodham Clinton? A character assassinating, rent-seeking, social-engineering, Big Government candidate with no achievements of her own. Yes, I think that'll do just fine.

Are we going to call it "the P-word" so we can be as juvenile in our discourse as when we talk about "the N-word"?

They made Mitt Romney into an animal cruelty aficionado. They showed Paul Ryan pushing granny off a cliff. Where do we think we'll find a perfect enough candidate to pass media scrutiny? Thats what they do to the people they call reasonable Republicans. Some of Trunp's positions on issues are left of Hillary. This isn't about crude language. This is about ruthless control of power, and brutal control of sheeple. There's a load of money in globalism. What did we think the media was going to do, be fair?

As for all the polls showing the crazy man is going down in a blaze, the historical record shows:

Trump needs to keep hammering away at corruption, and that our politico-media elites don't care about America or Americans. He can do it better than anyone else.

I'm guessing most of us know the media lies ferociously.
