LETTER TO THE EDITOR: The media doing their part to elect Clinton

Why have there been no allegations against Donald Trump in the many years he has been affiliated with the Miss Universe contest — even when he began his quest for the presidency? Doesn’t it seem strange that three weeks before the election, women suddenly appear?

Remember how the liberal media also tried to destroy Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and John McCain? Have you noticed it’s only the Republicans they go after? Why did NBC cut the first part of the tape with Billy Bush talking? Where was the media’s outrage over the lie Secretary Clinton told the parents of the four men killed in Benghazi on her watch? Have you heard the liberal media spend much, if any, time on the hacked Clinton emails and what they contain? Not only is Hillary Clinton’s private email server illegal, it “disqualifies” her from holding any federal office, very specifically stated in [United States] Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 101, § 2071(b) that:

a. Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under the title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.

But no one will stop her because we can’t get justice from the Obama Justice Department, because the Republican leadership in Congress is feckless and afraid of being called names, and because some people feel that having a woman president is more important. WikiLeaks has exposed a massive lie President Barack Obama told the American people following the first reports of Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server. In March of 2015, Obama told CBS News’ Bill Plante that he learned about the server “The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.” According to the newly leaked e-mails, that is not true because he had received e-mails from Clinton’s account. Has the “mainstream” media reported that?

The New York Times had 11 articles about Donald Trump Oct. 14 and not one on Hillary Clinton. Her scandals are worse than his, but we do not hear much about them in the mainstream media. (How much have you heard about her State Department trying to make a deal with the FBI to declassify an email that was classified?)

Do they not see the hypocrisy in Hillary’s saying she would believe any woman who said she was raped, when she led the campaign to discredit the other women in Bill’s life? Have you heard about her campaign, through the DNC, paying people to protest at Donald Trump rallies to give the impression that he incites violence? (Project Veritas video). Does the media care that Hillary wants children to be raised by the state with parents’ help? That sends shivers through me!

Do they not care that, when speaking about abortion “rights,” Mrs. Clinton has said religious values need to be changed? Sorry, but I like mine. Why does the media overlook the millions of dollars given to the Clinton Foundation by the Saudis and Qatar? Do they care that she will favor these governments over our own interests?

The media shows Hillary talking about making college more affordable, but have you heard from them that the policies she is advocating are designed to favor the multibillion-dollar online and digital learning industry (along with student loan providers)? She also likes assessment “dashboards” that encourage data collection that goes far beyond standardized tests (from leaked emails).

Donald Trump has said the media is rigging the election. Like her interviews, the media’s news is staged to make things appear as they are not, for her benefit. I would call that rigging.

Do we care? Apparently not, if we see no problem voting for her in spite of the lying and corruption. Someone wisely said, “Let’s concentrate on our country’s future, not Donald Trump’s past.” One of our Founders said that our Republic is only for a moral people. If Hillary is elected, there is no way it can survive.
