PARDON, DID HILLARY COMMIT A CRIME?
The Reverend Jesse Jackson called for President Obama to issue a blanket pardon to Hillary Clinton before he leaves office, just like Ford did for Richard Nixon. The question is whether Obama wants to taint his legacy with Hillary’s crimes. Jackson can claim all he wants, its like what Ford did for Nixon; however, it is not the same. The roles are not the same and neither are the crimes.
Speaking at President Gerald Ford’s alma mater, The Rev. Jesse Jackson called for President Obama to issue a blanket pardon to Hillary Clinton before he leaves office, just like Ford did for Richard Nixon.
Stopping short of saying Clinton did anything wrong, Jackson told a large crowd of University of Michigan students, faculty and administrators gathered at daylong celebration of his career that Obama should short-circuit President-elect Donald Trump’s promised attempt to prosecute Hillary Clinton for use of a private e-mail server.
Jackson’s comments came at the end of a long day in Ann Arbor, which included him dropping in on an anti-Trump rally held by students on campus.
Jackson comes to a campus that is full of strife over race. Numerous racist flyers have been posted and students have alleged they have been attacked because they are Muslim or a minority. There have been anti-Trump marches on U-M’s campus, along with campuses across the nation. A large demonstration marched through a series of U-M buildings even while Jackson was speaking.
“In this election, voters voted for fear. I think hope will defeat hate, but it’s a battle.”
In a conversation with the Free Press at the beginning of the day, he blamed Trump for the environment of fear.
Donald Trump saw an America that was a dry field, and instead of watering it to get the grass growing again, he threw a lit match on it, Jackson said.
Now it’s up to Trump to take action, Jackson added.
MRC/YouGov Poll: 69% Think Media is Dishonest … 78% of Voters Say News Coverage of the Presidential Campaign was Bias
THE MEDIA HAS FINALLY BEEN EXPOSED TO BE BIAS, DISHONEST AND UNTRUSTWORTHY ...
One of the biggest losers of the 2016 presidential elections was the news media, from top to bottom. A recent MRC/YouGov poll showed that 69% of voters believe the media to be dishonest and untrustworthy, while another 78% stated that the new coverage of the presidential campaign was biased. Of those who believe the media was bias, nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%). Maybe one of the most telling and disastrous finding of this poll for the media was that 97% of voters said that they did not let the MSM affect or influence their vote. Can you say, the MSM is now irrelevant?
The Media Research Center (MRC) announces the findings of a new post-election poll on what actual voters thought about the media’s influence on the 2016 presidential race. The MRC/YouGov poll was conducted on November 9 and 10.
- 7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful.
- 8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
- Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”
- 8% of Trump voters said they would have voted for Clinton if they had believed what the media were saying about Trump.
- 97% of voters said they did not let the media’s bias influence their vote.
This should be a wake up call for the liberal media, but it is most likely not. They still appear to be spewing their liberal bias agenda in their news as pointed out by Legal Insurrection. However, one thing is for certain, the American voters rejected their bias and was able to see through the lies.
Podesta: Hillary Clinton Lost the 2016 Presidential Election Because the Media Gave Donald Trump ‘a Pass’
DENIAL IS NOT JUST A RIVER IN EGYPT … THE BLAME GAME BEGINS.
As reported at The Washington Times, Team Hillary blames their loss election night to Donald Trump because of FBI Director James Comey and a media “pass” for Trump translated into an electoral landslide for the billionaire. This is what happens when one cannot take blame for their own actions, doing, scandals and bad candidacy. Let’s get real folks, who honestly thinks the MSM gave Trump a pass? We know, from the WikiLeaks emails, that the media was in the tank for Hillary Clinton both during the Democrat primary against Bernie Sanders and in the general election. Blame the media? Seriously, talk about killing the messenger and the Democrats greatest propaganda weapon. The MSM savaged Donald Trump at every turn.
Let’s face it, Hillary had the Democrat party on her side, the MSM and even establishment Republicans. How could she lose? What she did not have was the truth of the matter that Americans felt discontent over the past 8 years under Obama. They wanted change. Change they not only could believe in, but could benefit from.
Hillary Clinton’s inner circle gathered for an autopsy of her failed presidential campaign and concluded that media bias in favor of Donald Trump contributed to his historic win.
A political postmortem of the Democratic Party’s Election Day results has concluded that FBI Director James Comey and a media “pass” for Mr. Trump translated into an electoral landslide for the billionaire.
A private conference call Thursday with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, communications director Jennifer Palmieri and other aides addressed what Ms. Palmieri called “the most devastating loss in the history of American politics,” The Hill reported Thursday.
The group’s conclusions differ from assessments of Mrs. Clinton from previously released WikiLeaks documents belonging to Mr. Podesta.
“The media always covered [Mrs. Clinton] as the person who would be president and therefore tried to eviscerate her before the election, but covered Trump who was someone who was entertaining and sort of gave him a pass,” Mr. Podesta said. “We need to reflect and analyze that and put our voices forward.”
The Hill: Team Clinton in complete meltdown of election results. At some point the Democrats just have to look at this and say, we had a bad and poorly flawed candidate. Even with that, according to most all polls she was supposed to win.
Polls between Clinton and Republican Donald Trump had already tightened with the Comey news broke, and the race appeared to get closer over the next week.
On Nov. 6, Comey said the FBI had not found any information in the new emails that would change its original decision that Clinton should not be charged.
Aides also blamed the media for the loss.
“The media always covered her as the person who would be president and therefore tried to eviscerate her before the election, but covered Trump who was someone who was entertaining and sort of gave him a pass,” Podesta said. “We need to reflect and analyze that and put our voices forward.”
Trump during the campaign frequently criticized the media for being too hard on him.
Podesta, whose hacked emails were released by WikiLeaks over the campaign’s final stretch, said top Clinton aides will argue that the press created a “false moral equivalency” in its coverage of Clinton and Trump.
The campaign chairman blamed the press for “the dominance of the way they covered the email” controversy, saying it overlooked “the conflicts of Trump’s businesses, the Russian contacts we are now learning to be true, the failure of the press following the 3-page leak to the New York Times to really dig into the income tax question.”
Check This Out from 2016 Election Eve …. Watch Megyn Kelly Shake Her Head When She Realizes Donald Trump Will Become President (VIDEO)
FROM 2016 ELECTION NIGHT … THE REALITY SETS IN …
How did I miss this? I was a bit busy on election eve at a watch party and trying to get data from multiple outlets on line and TV that I missed the below VIDEO when it took place live. Take a good look at how Megyn Kelly, a FOX News anchor acts as she realizes that Hillary Clinton is going to lose and Donald J. Trump is going to become the next president of the United States. The look on her face and her shaking of her head was a bit telling. Hey Megyn, maybe we can play poker some time
However, even before the votes were counted for the presidential election, we pretty much knew that the impossible was about to happen and Trump had a legitimate chance to pierce Hillary’s blue wall in Wisconsen when the U.S Senate race was called and Republican Johnson easily defeated Democrat Russ Feingold, 50.2% to 46.8% .
Filmmaker & Uber Lib Michael Moore on Morning Joe … Telling it As It Is Why Michigan Did not Vote for Hillary Clinton
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, MICHAEL MOORE WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST HONEST PUNDIT DURING THE 2016 ELECTION CYCLE …
MUST WATCH VIDEO …. Please watch the VIDEO below of far-Left filmmaker Michael Moore as he explains exactly how Hillary Clinton and the Democrats lost election night and how they lost Michigan. Moore should know folks, he lives there. From the outset, Moore had the pulse of Michigan and the “Rust Belt” and said, “Trump is going to win”. The Left laughed and scoffed at such a happening. But when you live, breathe and only see one side of the world from a glass bubble, that is what happens.
It is true that politics makes strange partners as I have found myself following Michael Moore much of 2015 and into 2016. I could not disagree more with his ideology, however, I can respect his point of view as he believes what he says. I will say this to the Left and the Right, if you don’t listen to all sides to get your information, news and pulse of a nation, you will wind up severely shocked and disappointed following elections.
It would appear the people in Michigan got tired of being used by Democrats and played for photo-ops and props to win political elections. The very people that voted for all of the other line items on the Michigan ballot, some 90,000 (video 1:38) refused to vote for the top of the ticket and president. They were not going to participate in a system that had left, forgotten and failed them.
At the 3:25 mark you get the perfect example of just how elitist liberals who live in bubbles just don’t get it. Some how middle-America needs to know Manhattan? UNREAL. Joe Scarborough blasted him by saying, in Flint they don’t live in a bubble, they live in everyday America.
