First She Scoffs At The Country, Then She Coughs All Over It

“First She Scoffs At The Country, Then She Coughs All Over It” is my first YouTube attempt, now on The Unz Review, America’s smartest webzine. Here’s an excerpt from the text, which you can read in full at The Unz Review:

How does evidence against something, become evidence for that very same something?

Plain evidence against the good health of Hillary Clinton has become, with the aid of the malfunctioning media, evidence for her stamina. “She has the constitution of a boar,” said a defender on Fox New, following Mrs. Clinton’s very pubic collapse at the 2016, 9/11 memorial.

“She powered through it all,” parroted the rest.

“Pneumonia blows over like the flu” was the consensus on MSNBC, as they collected affidavit after affidavit from their reporters to swear to how humid, crowded and uncomfortable it was for Hillary on that fateful, New-York day.

“Probably nothing,” said that no-good neurologist Sanjay Gupta, at CNN, mere hours before the news of Clinton’s pneumonia broke.

How does a display of faltering health from Hillary become a reason to doubt the stamina of a man, Donald Trump, who’s like The Incredible Hulk?

Like magic, Trump materializes at multiple events a day, hops from Mexico to Louisiana, and seems to be having fun while at it. “Give me more,” his whole countenance seems to scream.

Then there’s the sexism angle (where, in the YouTube video that accompanies this short text, the writer is forced to reach for some “Dutch Courage”): How is it that we hold a female presidential candidate with pneumonia to a different standard than a male presidential candidate without pneumonia?

Now there’s a no-brainer. …

… The rest is on The Unz Review.

CNN Circles The Wagons Around Their Candidate

Hillary Clinton, Left-Liberalism, Media

BROOKE BALDWIN, host of CNN Newsroom and as partisan an anchor as the rest, moved quickly to shut down a line of inquiry about Hillary Clinton’s health, pursued by a DR. TIFFANY SIZEMORE. BALDWIN’s bookers clearly chose the wrong guest for her Clinton-friendly show.

BROOKE BALDWIN (HOST): Let me pivot back to the health records, Dr. Tiffany, and ask you this. As we talked about Hillary Clinton’s additional medical records to come out this week, also we’re hearing from the Trump camp that we should get some more information on his own health. When people pour through that, what do you expect to learn?

DR. TIFFANY SIZEMORE: One of my concerns, actually, is — and I want to be very blunt — pneumonia, which she has now, and what happened in 2012 are two distinctly separate things. However, the medical problems that Hillary had in 2012 are still significant medical problems. Having a blood clot in a vein in your brain is a pretty significant issue, especially when there’s been studies out that there’s a small subset of people who, when they have this problem, have chronic cognitive and decision-making impairment. So I do think —

BALDWIN: But what about [Donald] Trump? Sorry, I don’t know if I spoke —

SIZEMORE: I’m getting there. It’s OK.

BALDWIN: “OK, OK,” whereupon Brooke, who brooks no disagreement, moved on to her next, more compliant guest.

Dr. SIZEMORE won’t be called on again by bossy Brooke.

As one wag said, “When inquiry is shut down, it becomes advocacy,” or something like that.

CNN Anchor Huffs Over Hillary’s Health & Vitality

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Left-Liberalism, Media, Politics, Republicans

CNN’s Brianna Keilar raises Hillary Clinton’s health on air with Trump supporter Republican Congressman Sean Duffy. She then argues vigorously for HER candidate’s vitality: “Nah, Ms. Clinton doesn’t cough much.” Yeah, she Keilar has observed Hillary campaigning more energetically than Trump. “Why is Trump in red states?” (But no, “Why is Hillary in blue states”). A true advocate for Hillary is Keilar.

Ostensibly a reporter, Keilar also griped about the “right-wing press.” And she instructs Duffy: “I’m telling you how it is.” You can see Duffy veer between wanting to speak the truth to the stupid pouting girl, and, on the other hand, flattering her about the power and glory of her program. Duffy is part of “the New York-Washington axis of power.” More than in truth, he is vested in keeping his perch and being invited to return to Brianna Keilar’s CNN show.

Brianna’s sister-in-arms is Poppy Harlow (the ‘t’ is silent):

We Love Prostitutes, Hate Presstitutes (Yes, You, CNN)

Classical Liberalism, Donald Trump, Ethics, Feminism, Left-Liberalism, Media, Morality

There’s a lot to admire about practitioners of the oldest profession in the world. A lot of sympathy is in order for those who choose, or must resort to, prostitution. None such considerations are in order for America’s presstitutes: There is nothing redeeming or remotely forgivable about the malfunctioning media’s simplistic, silly, nuance-bereft, sentimentality oozing, strictly left-liberal angle and approach (as opposed to our classical liberalism). Nothing.

The news media these days is a thoroughly feminized endeavor, with a penchant for, mostly, soft news stories. Duly, the network girls—a definition that includes boys—have been banging on about one thing since Donald Trump delivered three or four inspiring, certainly substantive, addresses. The discussion around Trump’s speeches has focused not on the multilayered issues covered by Trump, but on the “Trump ‘Regrets’ Comment,” as CNN called the stupidest part of what were otherwise spectacular speeches. This is how a feminized media steers the focus of its captive audience to frivolity.

The comment:

“Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that. And believe it or not, I regret it. And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues,” Trump told supporters here.
He added: “But one thing I can promise you is this: I will always tell you the truth.”

The commentary, if you can stomach it.
