Sharyl Attkisson's 21st Century prophecy - Smear

© 2016 Jim Spence -  A few weeks ago I wrote of a book called, “Smear” authored by former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson. I urged my readers to buy and read this book.
In “Smear,” Attkisson documents in painstaking detail how smear merchants essentially control the narratives carried by the mainstream media every day. Through orchestrated efforts involving innuendos, bogus claims and counter-claims, and robotic digital assaults in social media, print, and television media, smear merchants exercise remarkable control over America.
Hundreds of millions of naïve Americans need to crawl out from underneath their naïve rocks and understand how fake virtually all forms of news are. We are talking news stories, polls, etc.
Consider what has been happening right under our noses the last couple of weeks. It all began with troubling revelations of criminal behaviors by Clinton and Obama White House buddy and campaign fundraising bundler….. Harvey Weinstein. It turns out that Weinstein is the tip of an iceberg. There are reprobates all over Hollywood and most of them are devout Democrats. What seems now like a trickle of revelations about Harvey Weinstein turned into a torrent as more and more women came forward to tell their stories. It did not take long before the atrocious behaviors of powerful Democrats served as a reminder to the public of what victims like Kathleen Willey told us about Bill Clinton two decades ago. It is important to remember that Willey, a LIFE-LONG Democrat had been sexually assaulted by one Bill Clinton in the White House when he was not taking time out of his Oval Office schedule to gratify himself with the help of young Monica Lewinsky. The treatment of Willey and other Clinton accusers by Hillary Clinton was so unabashedly aggressive it simply cannot be squared with what she is saying today about the behaviors of other men accused of far less than what her husband was.
The bottom line politically is simple. Democrats have been squirming for weeks trying to escape the hypocrisy trap they set and then got caught in themselves.
No problem. The best defense is a good offense and with a multi-billion dollar smear industry on retainer for Democrats, it did not take all that long for the Democrats to orchestrate an incredible diversion. Conveniently, the latest smear diversion served two purposes. First, it got the public’s mind off of what utter slime bags both Weinstein and Bill Clinton are. Second, the diversion is now about to help the Democrats pick off a formerly untouchable Alabama Senate seat.
Amazingly, what has happened in the U.S. Senate in response to the Democrat’s smear campaign tells you all you need to know about Mitch McConnell. As the Roy Moore smear job was unleashed, the Senate was already well on its way to shirking yet another solemn and sworn duty. Corporate tax reform was being put on the back-burner by McConnell and fellow GOP senators. Shortly after the Moore smear campaign was unleashed, Mitch McConnell and many other GOP senators stopped what they were supposed to be doing to help the country on taxes. Instead they became the self-appointed prosecutors, judges, jury members, and executioners of Roy Moore. This happened within a matter of a couple of days. Mind you there have never been any charges filed against Moore just politically charged accusations orchestrated by smear merchants. Still, Republicans in the U.S. Senate believe they are so profoundly wise they could become fact finders on the life of Roy Moore within 48 hours of the Democrat’s smear campaign. McConnell and his chimps did this on the fly to the delight of the smear merchants paid for by Democrats.
With absolutely no sense of urgency whatsoever, McConnell and his cronies announced late this week that they had decided to stop working on tax reform until AFTER Thanksgiving. That is rich. The rest of us will be back at it Monday because………we have jobs.
It is time to admit that the 2017 GOP Senate is the greatest political disappointment of a lifetime. And that covers a lot of smelly ground. America needs to bulldoze Washington D.C. and start over. I would not let Mitch McConnell walk my dog.
