Hillary Clinton Blames Right-Wing Media ‘Domination’

“Look, we have an advocacy press on the right that has done a really good job for the last 25 years,” she said later, returning to the subject. “They have a mission. They use the rights given to them under the First Amendment to advocate a set of policies that are in their interests, their commercial, corporate, religious interests. Because the advocacy media occupies the right, and the center needs to be focused on providing as accurate information as possible. Not both-sides-ism and not false equivalency.”

She attack right-wing media a third time in the interview, complaining about their “domination” of the media.

“We’re up against suppression, we’re up against an even greater domination of the media by the right. We are up against the propaganda machine. I mean, they have a reelect campaign already started! They have raised millions of dollars,” she said. They know that they’re in a fight.”

It is getting so old listening to lefties who lost elections whine and complain about the right wing media and the damage they inflicted on them.

Yes, there is a right wing media. Yes, they have a right wing agenda. There is also a left wing media with a left wing agenda, and that left wing media is the mainstream media. The fact is, there is no “center” media. There is not a media source right now that does not have a wing bias. It’s why I encourage people to read both right wing and left wing media, because the real story is a combination of the two sides. But you have to work to find it, and people don’t want to do that. I don’t blame them. But we tend to go where we lean.

So, no, Hillary. The right wing media probably didn’t hurt you, because the people following right wing media weren’t going to vote for you anyway. The left wing media was pushing hard for you and your agenda, and you still lost. That’s you. It’s all you, lady. Judging by your inability to take personal responsibility for your loss in a rigged election that was practically handed to you and was pushed for so hard by the left wing media, we apparently dodged a hell of a bullet by keeping you out of office!

Notre Dame Students Walk Out Of Graduation To Protest Pence. The Crowd’s Reaction Is Priceless

A video of the walk-out is extraordinary. The crowd cheers when Pence is introduced, but boos loudly when the students rise to walk out.

Pence, always classy, didn’t acknowledge the walkout. But he did chide those purveying the current state of intolerance on campuses by saying in his address that “free speech and civility are waning on campuses across America.”

My mother actually told me about this yesterday, mostly because she was appalled by it. My mother is a democrat and doesn’t like the president or vice president, but even she admitted it was wholly disrespectful and wrong. She pointed out that if it had been my graduation and I had walked out on the vice president’s speech – regardless of who it was – she would have slapped me. And I pointed out that it isn’t something I would have done. I may have videoed it and critiqued it later, but walk out? Hell no!

It made it’s way into the news after that, and my mother continued to comment on it. The way the media has portrayed it, you would think it was this massive walk out that included a large portion of the graduates walking out during the speech. And my mother was beside herself that that many graduates would be leaving college with that level of disrespect.

So I opened this clip on my phone and showed my mother. The big deal the media made about it was a little overblown… as usual. As you can see (and was reported), it was less than 100 students that walked out. The vast majority of graduates stayed, some even stood and clapped when he took the podium.

I’m not disregarding the event. It was still massively disrespectful that anyone walked out on the speech. And I worry that these people are entering the work force now. Although as overly offended snowflakes, their prospects at getting and keeping a job are limited.

But as usual, the media made it out to be bigger than it was. Even my mother was astounded when she saw the actual walk out. It is a sign of the times, and something to always keep in the back of your mind as the media goes nuts over everything Trump does. Remember, Trump could fart into the wind and the media would make a huge scandal out of it.

Me? As I said… if it had been my graduation, regardless of the vice president at the time, I’d be there videoing the heck out of it, most likely for you guys. 🙂

Dem Leadership Looks to Squelch Impeachment Talk

Emphasis mine.

The Hill:

Democratic leaders have a message for those members of their caucus beating the drum to impeach President Trump: not so fast.

“I would suggest … there needs to be a full investigation first,” Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Wednesday. “We need to get to the facts, and let the facts lead where they may.”

In the eyes of several Democrats, however, the facts already lead to impeachment.

[…]

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) spoke out at a closed-door House Democratic Caucus meeting Wednesday morning to highlight the urgency of removing Trump, whom the Democrats increasingly see as a national security liability.

Almost simultaneously, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) took to the House floor to trumpet the impeachment call he’d sounded earlier in the week. He characterized his decision as a “position of conscience.”

The highlighted area above is everything. I’m sorry, but it is.

The rule of law in the United States is not based off of feelings, no matter how much some of these lefties want it to be. As Ben Shapiro so often says, “Facts don’t care about your feelings.”

Everything coming out in the media recently has been quotes and things stated by anonymous sources, which is fine. But those aren’t facts. It’s someone else’s recollection, opinion, or feelings with nothing behind them. If it comes out that Trump did, in fact, do something that warrants impeachment, then great! Let’s start the impeachment proceedings. And if anything comes out that says his removal from office is warranted, then great! We can start those proceedings next (for those who don’t know it, impeachment is not removal from office). But you can’t base impeachment on something someone says they sort of recollect seeing in a memo, or hearsay. It has to be actual provable facts that can be presented in a court of law with no room for reasonable doubt.

Impeachment is no light matter. It should not even be discussed until actual facts are presented and reasonable doubt is erased. And so far, we haven’t seen any. All we’ve seen are feelings.

D.C. Swamp Critter Franken Returns $41K in Campaign Contributions Amid Investigation

Independent Sentinel

Thornton Law Firm have been top donors to the Franken campaign committee and they are under investigation by the FEC and the Boston U.S. Attorney’s office.

Franken returned the money as federal regulators are investigating the firm for linking employee bonuses to campaign contributions.

Democrats have returned one million dollars though not all Democrats have followed suit. Sen. Jack Reed in Rhode Island didn’t. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention so-called Republican Lindsey Graham didn’t return contributions the firm made to him.

We’re so shocked. We thought Democrats didn’t want big corrupt money in politics.

It is believed that this firm overcharged clients, padding bills by millions of dollars among their other crimes.

As the Boston Globe explains, the asbestos law company encouraged their partners to give money to Democratic campaigns, with their donations later reimbursed by the firm as apparent “bonuses.”

Liberals now OPENLY calling for shutdown of conservative sites

AllenBWest.com

“Democratic lawmakers joined alt-left protesters who want to ban conservative news websites at a protest outside of the Federal Communications Commission, Thursday.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D. Calif.) told the crowd of protesters and antifa members to “stay woke” in fighting against FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to roll back Obama era net neutrality rules.

Politico Pro reported that four Democrats joined the protest, which included members of the alt-left groups who have targeted Pai and held protests in his neighborhood. Politico did not mention protesters wearing masks and identifying themselves as part of the antifa movement. They held signs advocating to ban news websites such as the Drudge Report and Breitbart.

“We must stay vigilant,” Lee said. “We must insist that our freedom of speech is preserved.”

Senators Ron Wyden (D., Ore.), Ed Markey (D., Mass.), and Rep. Jared Polis (D., Colo.) also “joined the activists” protesting Pai’s proposal, which would bring less regulation for Internet service providers.

The FCC voted 2-1 Thursday afternoon to begin the process of reversing net neutrality rules, including Title II, which subjected Internet companies to regulations on how they can manage traffic on their networks. The proposal will now be open to public comment for 90 days.

Politico mentioned Protect Our Internet as one of the groups that organized the FCC protest, but failed to mention the group’s ties to members of DisruptJ20 and antifa, which have been involved in violent protests against the presidential inauguration and conservative speakers on college campuses.”
