Hillary, Hillary, Hillary!

You refused to be interviewed by the state department IG in reference to the e-mail server installed in your home and your e-mail communications to your staff and the members of the U.S. state department. The investigation and it was an investigation reported that you knew that someone or some organization tried to hack your private server and you sent an e-mail to your staff saying that you wanted to make certain no one had access to your “personal” e-mails and they were instructed to not tell anyone about your private e-mail server. The conclusion of the IG of the state department was that you failed to follow government laws and rules regarding the use and retaining of e-mails related to state department business. It is clear by this report that you lied and tried to hide from the government your communications about state department business. Hillary, you lied, lied, lied.

Hillary don’t worry the mainstream media and your closest supporters will deny, deny, deny and you will gain the democrat parties nomination for President of this country but the majority of the people will know you are untrustworthy and that you are a liar, liar, liar.

Full court press

If you like basketball or even if you go to a game to please your date you may have heard the term; full court press. This is a defensive strategy where in the team plays the opposing tight [close up harassing passes etc.] not only under the basket but also over the entire court never letting their opponents a chance to rest or regroup.

Full court press is what the mainstream media is practicing with their coverage of Donald Trump. The media is committed to the destruction of Trump’s campaign for President. I don’t believe it is because they like Hillary but rather they cannot accept an upstart, politically incorrect candidate like Trump succeeding or they will have lost their leverage over traditional politicians and the government.

There are ample examples of the media “reaching” for stories of Trump’s insensitive approach to PC issues. Suffice to say that supporters of Trump just like supporters of Hillary who choose to ignore the e-mail controversy don’t care and will not be deterred by “stories.” Meanwhile the shear weight of written and broadcasting press will seem to make an insurmountable negative wave of “news” for Trump to deal with. Of course his only chance is that Hillary’s negative press in spite of the mainstream medias attempt to minimize exposure will leak out and make for an close race in November of this year.

The Media’s Strategy

Let me preface my comments by saying that while I’m a fiscal conservative I would probably be considered socially liberal. My choice for the Republican presidential candidate was Carly Fiorina, clearly a mistake in light of her endorsement of Ted Cruz. The reason for this lengthy explanation of my political preferences is to make the point that I was not a champion of Donald Trump for the Republican’s presidential candidate. However I must say I’m even less supportive of the politically correct news media.

I have not been surprised that the news media “reluctantly accepting” Donald as the representative of the Republican Party in the 2016 Presidential race have launched a campaign of hate and fear against him. The references to him being a loose cannon, dangerous with his finger on the button of a nuclear weapon, hating Muslims and many more charges presented by the press as news and facts is overwhelming. It is true across the media front and clearly signals that the press, unsuccessful in stopping Donald’s campaign for the GOP nomination is going to stop him from becoming the President.

You cannot miss the concerted campaign by the PC press whether it be traditional networks, cable news networks, radio talk shows or print media they are acting as one to sink Trump as a presidential candidate. They constantly quote stats that show blacks, Hispanics and women hate Trump.

In the media world one of the formula’s for campaign success is reach [the number of different people you reach with your message] times frequency [the number of times the message is run] equals cume total. A really good campaign could reach millions of people hundreds of times within the remaining months before Election Day. That is what the news media is intent on doing.

One of the points I want to make is that the PC media can and will be subtle in its efforts to manage the story on Trump. Witness this weekend when all of the news media led with the line; Ryan won’t back Trump. This is big news when the Speaker of the House, a Republican says he won’t support his party’s candidate for President. Let’s take a look at what was really said and what probably was intended.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.), the nation’s highest-ranking GOP official, said Thursday that he could not support Donald Trump until he changes his tone and demonstrates that he shares the party’s values. While acknowledging that Trump has mobilized a powerful grass-roots movement and earned the nomination, Ryan said that Trump has not shown himself to be “a standard-bearer who bears our standard” — and he put the onus on the business mogul to recalibrate his campaign and offer a more inclusive vision. Donald’s response was to say that he could not support Ryan’s party agenda as it is currently presented but it was a basis for negotiations.
I think the key words in Ryan’s statement was “until he changes” which I interpret as a point of negotiation because in the end Paul will have to support Donald or be partially responsible for the loss of the presidency and possibly three supreme court justices positions. I don’t believe Paul Ryan really wants those actions as part of his political legacy.
Meanwhile the PC media is following a strategy of innuendo and fear baiting offering Trump up as a nut case and Hillary Clinton as a less than popular but safe alternative for President of the United States.
