The media sold us out

Where was the media through all this? They built us an idol, see, and they named it Barack Hussein Obama.

The Democrats will always have Russia but not the way they had it figured…and for the media the karma has only begun.

So the truth is that it’s Russia all right, but if any colluding was done, it was the Democrats that done it.
The news that the Democrat party sold us out to the Russians on two counts -- yes the Russians of all people -- may come as a surprise to most Americans and why? Simply because during the past eight years, the Obama years, the news media, nearly all of them, were asleep at the switch. 

After all the damage has been done now, only now are we trying to figure out which scandal is worse. A: The one where the Democrats colluded with Russia to smear Donald Trump, or B: The one where the Democrats gave up a substantial percentage of our uranium resources to the Russians. 

In either case the most prominent above-the-fold DNC names appear to have had a hand in a maze of corruption…as the media snoozed through it all.

It starts but does but does not end with the Clintons, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Robert Mueller, plus Barack Hussein Obama, to name some. Most if not all are Team Hillary Democrats who took part in what amounts to scandalous behavior – or knew about it but said nothing.

They said plenty, through the media, when all points (falsely) led to Trump and Russia. Russia…Russia…Russia. 

You couldn’t shut them up about it; now they are tongue-tied. But at this very moment The New York Times is busy refreshing its lies…against Trump.

Finally, and mostly through Fox News and The New York Post and amazingly through an expose at The Washington Post, the startling truth is coming out.

Barry Shaw here on Arutz Sheva does a wonderful job summarizing the dirty dealings that were afoot starting in 2009/2010.

That saves me the grief of providing the details and allows me to focus on the media. 

So the truth is that it’s Russia all right, but if any colluding was done, it was the Democrats that done it. Bribes, kickbacks, dirty tricks, the whole schmear. 

We should have known about it all along. We didn’t because the media wanted it that way. They wanted us in the dark.

They wanted us barefoot and pregnant.

They built us an idol, see, and they named it Barack Hussein Obama. They commanded us to bow to this false god that they created. No harm must come to him.

So for eight years they worshipped him. They saw no flaw in him. Underhanded billions for an archenemy like Iran? No problem. Snubbing Israel our only true friend in the Middle East? Nothing wrong with that either according to the media because it was Obama and Obama can do no wrong.

But now we know that Obama’s entire administration was full of imperfections, enough for some to call it treason.

Unlike the peppering and pestering Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets in the Trump briefing room, a roomful of 22-year-old Democrats in other words, there were no press briefings when it was Obama, or hardly any. In fact there was no press when it was Obama. 

For eight years they’d Gone Fishin’.

The Democrat/Media Axis loved the word “collusion” when it was aimed at Trump. Impeach! Impeach!

Suddenly, now that the same allegations, and worse, are aimed at their own family and friends, oh, that’s just politics. Let’s move on. 

Hillary calls it “old news,” which is what they always say when they get caught. Congressman Adam Schiff, among the hungriest to eat away at Trump, calls it “a distraction,” now that the Russia probe is no more to his liking. Nor is it anything the media can love…or cover. They are still lying and evading.

The Democrats have much to answer for, but the media are the guiltiest of all because all that treachery happened on their watch.
