USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The Clinton Media have gone from malfunctioning to mad, from “dishonest” to deranged.
Their coverage of the 2016 election is no longer tinged by liberal bias, but is about moving viewers and readers into a parallel universe, an alternate reality of the media’s making.
The media monolith’s latest imbecility is to offer effusive plaudits for their candidate, Hillary, because this life-long politician whose ill-gotten gains have come via the political means, not the private productive means, has released her tax returns for 2015.
Something Donald Trump has yet to do.
For the candidate is under audit and has been advised to refrain from doing anything that’ll give the most corrupt and dangerous of government agencies a lien on his assets—or liberty, for that matter.
Befitting an arm of our technocratic Managerial State—the Internal Revenue Service regularly criminalizes the actions of “non-compliant” victims, even when the alleged crime is, more often than not, unintentional.
And it matters not that the “Rights of Englishmen,” bequeathed to the American Founders by their philosophical forbears, stipulated that there is to be no crime without intent. Also unconstitutional is ex post facto (or retroactive) law. Yet the rogues at the IRS routinely change laws as they go, and criminalize “actions that were legal when committed.”
Lest anyone forget, the IRS is famous for unleashing its corrupt kleptocrats—Lois Lerner is exhibit A—on innocent tea-party and 9/12 patriots in order to, very plainly, destroy them.
Lerner deployed this vast, oppressive apparatus to hound right-leaning non-profits, to threaten their mission and menace their donors. Just like Hillary Clinton does, Lerner knew she would remain untouched by the law.
Post resignation, the lippy Lerner could afford to be unrepentant. “I am not sorry for anything I did,” she declared to Politico.
Compared to Trump, tea-party patriots were adored by the establishment.
This Mr. Michael Cohen, General Counsel for the Trump Organization, knows.
On no account, said Michael Cohen, Esq., would he allow his client, Mr. Trump, to reveal anything about his taxes while under audit. (Here’s hoping Cohen will replace Trump’s lightweight panelists, sitting pretty at CNN and elsewhere. The longer these regulars linger in these snake pits, the more they begin to “accommodate their talking partners on the Left-Center,” the more they labor “to smooth rough edges,” the more they move to “marginalize their own right wing,” and “distance themselves from those who seem more conservative in their principles than the goal of bridge–building might render acceptable.” …
