When it comes to politics, the media sees its role as that of a SuperPAC — an entity with boundless funds and control of the airwaves able to frame the narrative and shape the outcome of our elections.
Trump is right; the system is rigged. But it isn’t rigged by the political parties. It’s rigged by the Enslaved Press.
The veil dropped away completely in 2008 when the Enslaved Press pulled out all the stops to grease the skids for the freshman Senator from Illinois with a resume so thin it could fit on a postage stamp.
Bernard Goldberg chronicled this shameful point in our history in his 2009 book A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media.
If you’ve never read it, I highly recommend it.
In the introduction for the book, Goldberg writes:
Never in my memory were so many journalists so intent on effecting change as they were during the campaign of 2008. Sure, mainstream journalists always root for the Democrat. But this time it was different. This time journalists were not satisfied merely being partisan witnesses to history. This time they wanted to be real players and help determine the outcome. This time they were on a mission — a noble, historic mission, as far as they were concerned. In fact, I could not remember a time when so many supposedly objective reporters had acted so blatantly as full-fledged advocates for one side — and without even a hint of embarrassment.
Once the genie got out of the bottle, there was no way to shove him back in. The media have embraced their new role of influence peddlers and campaigners in our election process.
The difference this year is the Enslaved Press seems hell-bent on building up and glorifying a candidate for no other reason than to see him lose in a humiliating landslide come November.
Do you really think people like Joe and Mika like Donald Trump? Not even a little. Sure, they love the ratings he garners for them, but they detest the man.
The only Enslaved Press network that is going full-on Obama-style crush for Trump is Fox News. Like the Liberal media in 2008, Fox is making certain that every hour of their programming has a thumb on the scale for Donald Trump.
I’m sure you’ve seen this graphic from the Media Research Center:
It’s ironic given how sure Trump’s followers were just a few months ago that Fox had it in for the Donald. They howled endlessly about Roger Ailes being an open-borders/amnesty guy. They accused Fox of wanting to destroy Trump because he was so staunchly anti-illegal immigration. They complained and kvetched and pissed and moaned about Fox News being “the Establishment” who wants to choose “the Establishment” candidate. But Ailes has been helping Trump during this election as if he, and not Corey Lewandowski, was his campaign manager.
Makes you wonder about Trump’s bona fides on immigration, doesn’t it?
Why set up Trump? For Fox it is obvious. They are having a “slobbering love affair” with the guy. For some reason that I simply cannot fathom, they want him to win. So rather than just report on the election, by giving Trump all the media airtime he could want while never actually challenging a single thing he says, Fox is hoping to make up for Donald’s miserable campaign infrastructure by taking on the role of his campaign infrastructure. In other words, they’re serving Trump in precisely the way most Trump supporters claimed they would serve Jeb or Marco.
Oddly enough, the irate howling among Trump supporters over Fox’s bias has dried up.
Meanwhile, the Liberal media prop Trump up because they want him to be the one who faces Hillary in the fall.
Because they know he’ll lose.
The media will never stop trying to pick our candidate. Never.
All of the Liberal media mouthpieces who are defending and enabling Trump during this primary process want him to get the nomination because he is without question the weakest Republican candidate in history. And they will turn on him like a rabid dog when the General Election comes around.
They’re setting him up just so they can ensure a Democrat victory in November.
I used to believe that Donald Trump was playing the media like a Stradivarius. But now, I’m beginning to suspect that while Donald thinks he has them right where he wants them, the truth is the Enslaved Press have been the ones playing Trump. They’ve played on his vanity brilliantly. By slobbering all over him, by having him on their programs day after day — sometimes several times a day — they’ve built him up just so they can proceed to knock him flat on his ass after they help him secure the nomination.
After the way the Enslaved Press manipulated things in 2008, I have no doubt whatsoever that they are diabolical enough and skilled enough to pull this off.
And make no mistake, they have been pulling it off.
The difference from 2008, of course, is that these guys don’t want to make sure Trump wins in November; they want to make sure Hillary Clinton has an easy path to the White House.
I have to say it really is genius in a sick and twisted way.
They found Donald Trump’s Achilles’ heel. They wooed him with attention, airtime and flattery. They’ve lulled him into believing that all these interviews, all these appearances are building him up to win.
Win the nomination? Yes.
But lose the General.
The problem the Enslaved Press has in 2016 is, unlike in 2008, the Democrat frontrunner is not a matinee idol whom voters swoon over. She is a detestable, untrustworthy, wretched hag. They can’t build Hillary up. They can’t have her on every show because the more people see her, the less they like her.
What better way to solve that problem than to advance a Republican candidate who is even more detestable than she is?
Their mission appears to be framing the narrative that Trump is “inevitable.” Every win is treated like decisive proof that Donald should be the nominee. They give credence to his ignorant and childish whining over delegates in order to put pressure on the RNC to capitulate and grant Trump the nomination even if he fails to win a majority of delegates. They are masterfully manipulating public opinion against the RNC’s convention rules that have been in existence since the Republican Party was established.
They are doing everything possible to clear the way for Trump’s nomination.
Donald Trump is like Carrie. The Enslaved Press are like the mean kids at her school. They build him up and flatter him so that at just the right moment when he is crowned Queen of the Republican Nomination, they can drop a proverbial bucket of pig’s blood on him and humiliate him.
The objective here is what it has always been: to advance Liberalism and to put an end to the Conservative movement. It is the same mission today as it was back when the Tea Party Movement began — to delegitimize the grassroots while promoting the Leftist agenda. Trump is tailor-made for delegitimizing conservatism. He helps the Enslaved Press promote the narrative that Republicans are ignorant racists and extremist kooks who are a threat to the entire universe. They’re not helping Trump “take down the Establishment;” they’re aiding and abetting Trump to help take down conservatives.
By advancing and promoting Trump, the Liberal Enslaved Press will see to it that the gains made by conservatives within the Republican Party are obliterated. Conservatism is not only a threat to the Democrats and their ever-leftward march toward socialism; it is a threat to the entrenched political aristocracy on both the Republican and Democrat side. And that aristocracy includes the Enslaved Press. They are fighting for their own relevance and influence over our culture and our political system.
By advancing Trump, they believe they can inflict a death blow on conservatism once and for all.
A Clinton win in November will ensure that the radical fundamental transformation Obama began will be set in stone. We will lose the Supreme Court for a generation at least. More than likely Republicans will lose the Senate. The demographics of the nation will radically change through Clinton’s push for Amnesty and open borders. As a result, the Republican Party will then become a minority party in perpetuity.
Trump isn’t the target of this.
We conservatives are.
Trump is merely the catalyst to make it happen — a useful idiot too arrogant and narcissistic to realize he is being used to further advance Liberalism’s not-so-silent conquering of America.
So for now, with the nomination not sewn up, the Enslaved Press will continue to keep its thumb on the scale to make sure that the flawed and unlikeable Hillary Clinton comes out the winner on November 8.
