Scoundrel Media Whining About Comey’s October Surprise
by Stephen Lendman
Media scoundrels for Hillary want her left untouchable, her scandalous public record suppressed – high crimes too serious to ignore.
No wonder public trust in government is the lowest in 50 years, according to Gallup polling. Less than 30% of Americans believe their interests are served.
Increasing numbers abhor media scoundrel reporting, proliferating misinformation and Big Lies, suppressing hard truths.
Lead Hillary press agents NYT and Washington Post editors blasted Comey’s October surprise.
The Times editorial board called it “inscrutable, election-shaking…about emails that may or may not be new or relevant to the previously concluded investigation…(His) logic makes (no) sense…”
Fact: Relevance won’t be known until an investigation is concluded and results announced.
Fact: Having absolved Hillary in July, despite clear indictable evidence, it’s hard imagining Comey changing tactics now.
Bashing him dominates headlines – from establishment hero to goat overnight, a public official most Americans likely couldn’t identify if asked is now a household name. 
Times editors called his Friday announcement “breathtakingly rash and irresponsible,” adding he “undermine(d) the American people’s trust in the nation’s top law enforcement agencies.”
Throughout the campaign, they ignored Hillary’s disgraceful public record, the most ruthlessly dangerous presidential aspirant in US history – serving as her press agent.
Neocon Washington Post editors asked what to do now, saying Hillarygate (my term, not theirs) isn’t “bigger than Watergate.” It’s hugely bigger with far greater potential consequences.
She “does not belong in prison.” If ordinary people committed her high crimes, they’d be locked up for life.
Trump “debases the process by labeling his opponent ‘crooked’ (harming) American democracy.” The Bill and Hillary crime family long avoided accountability. “American democracy” is pure fantasy. None exists.
WaPo: “Mr. Trump is the least qualified and most dangerous major-party nominee for president in our lifetimes. He is frighteningly cavalier about the use and spread of nuclear weapons; contemptuous of democratic norms and ignorant of the Constitution; totally unmoored from the truth in his public statements.”
All of the above applies to the Bill and Hillary crime family – and a whole lot more. Trump-supporting accurately discussed high crimes Hillary should and could be held accountable for.
They include perjury, obstruction of justice, bribery, pay for play, illegal use of an NGO, racketeering and fraud.
Her war crimes, orchestrated coups, anti-Russia, anti-China, anti-Iran militancy, and support for Israeli slow-motion genocide against millions of Palestinians were omitted – among other offenses.
Her advocacy for recklessly interventionist foreign policy threatens everyone everywhere.
