Drudge linked an editorial -- "The Cold Clinton Reality" -- and a column by Kimberley Strassel -- "Grifters-in-Chief" -- which show great angst over the depth, breadth, height, and weight of the criminality of the Clintons.
But they are crooks. That is what they do. The Wall Street Journal insulted the intelligence of its readers by asking the question of "Why isn’t the IRS investigating the Clinton Foundation?"
We know why. The FBI is a federal bureaucracy run by liberals. Clinton bought off its director by arranging a nice six-figure donation to his wife's campaign.
But the Clintons co-opted the Wall Street Journal years ago when Rupert Murdoch bought the paper. He has been pushing her presidency for a decade now. He is not about to quit.
Bret Stephens, deputy editorial page editor, openly hopes for a 50-state sweep by Hillary so he and his chattering class of conservative tools can win back control of the party. The party matters more than the country to these political degenerates.
This election has unmasked and exposed them. Nevertheless, they march forward as if they still have any dignity.
The Clintons spent their White House years explaining endless sleazy financial deals, and even capping their exit with a scandal over whether Bill was paid to pardon financier Marc Rich. They know the risks. And yet they geared up the foundation and these seedy practices even as Mrs. Clinton was making her first bid for the presidency. They continued them as she sat as secretary of state. They continue them still, as she nears the White House.
This is how the Clintons operate. They don’t change. Any one who pulls the lever for Mrs. Clinton takes responsibility for setting up the nation for all the blatant corruption that will follow.Swell. Don't for Hillary. But not supporting her does nothing to stop her. If you don't vote for him, you are saying it is OK for her to win because you see no difference between a man who acts crass and a woman who acts criminally.
From the editorial:
We don’t applaud WikiLeaks or the theft of information, and these hacks deserve a firm U.S. government response. But the emails are public and they will confirm for many Americans their worst suspicions about the people who run their government.
It’s also worth noting that in the vast digital trove of Mr. Podesta’s stolen emails we haven’t noticed emails from Mrs. Clinton. Perhaps they don’t exist. But American voters shouldn’t worry merely about the emails released before the election. What emails or memos exist that these hackers, Russian or not, could be withholding for leverage after the election with another President Clinton?
The Clinton campaign has suggested that Donald Trump has praised Vladimir Putin because the Russian has something on the Republican. The question is what do any number of possible bad actors know about Bill and Hillary Clinton’s mixing of business, charity and politics?Nice words.
Now how about some action?
I am not asking the Wall Street Journal writers hold their noses to endorse Trump.
I want them to wear a gas mask if necessary.
Just do it.
They say all it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing. But the Never Trump crowd has few good men in its ranks. They know better, and still they choose to do nothing to stop her, as if clucking their tongues is enough.
If Trump loses, it is on him.
But if you do not vote for him, it's on you, too. You give up your right to speak out against her.
Voting isn't easy. But grownups know, most things in life that are worthwhile are not.
Of course, some good things in life are easy. Puppies, sunny days, and reading "Trump the Press" are a few of them. The book is a fun romp through the Republican nomination that uses the deadliest weapon to skewer the media experts: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
