The peripheral, the outer edges of principal are the media’s emphasis of and for this election’s Republican protagonist. Although awash in hypocrisy and outright duplicity, The New York Times enunciates Trump’s wholly legal 1995 tax return as some kind of moral insight. Pronouncing Trump sinful for adhering to (while benefiting from!) the tax laws of the land, interestingly, the management of the (NYT) did not in the same article report that the newspaper acted in exactness on its own tax returns and accordingly benefited.
In the present, the radio and televised media is shocked, even traumatized and of course offended, by an eleven-year old crude locker-room type recording of Trump and Billy Bush’s stupid apathetically delivered fabrication of their imaginative thoughts on the general behavioral instincts of women.
I am in my 73rd year of existence; I can assure my readership that, no matter their station in life, just about all men have said stupid, insensitive untruths about their counter-gender. Seemingly, to be male is to be born with a debilitating software defect. Compared to females, males are slow learners and take forever to mature. I present this debility of my gender not as an excuse for the ridiculous idiocy of Trump and Billy Bush’s recorded conversation but to note, in the scheme of electoral importance, its irrelevancy.
There is no justification for this sort of stupid. Nonetheless, even when armed with the cognitive knowledge to know better and when the truth of the matter is palpable, we all have been practitioners of stupid comments and behavior.
However, as a voter, one’s analysis of Hillary Clinton’s ideological persuasion, her mantra of liberal progressive declarations and her determinative Machiavellian approach to politics defines the ethos of her personal reflective representation. Measure Clinton’s transgressions against the misbehaviors and indiscretions of Trump’s:
Benghazi: because of a pending election she collaborated with the Obama administration’s deceit and patently lied to the American people while Trump was wasting time and energy, striving to prove that President Obama was not born in the USA. As Secretary of State she perpetuated a policy of deceit and ignored the rescue of Americans fighting off a terrorist attack she defined as the result of a nasty video. Trump on the other hand was busy with the benign silliness of striving to disprove a Honolulu, HI issued birth certificate.
The Iranian deal as negotiated, affirmed, and touted by Clinton is an exemplar of definitive absurdity. An incongruity of good sense, rated above the stupidity (upon our withdrawal from Iraq) of not leaving in place a viable contingent of fighting forces supposedly because of the lack of a “status of forces agreement,” noting we presently have thousands of military in Iraq and these troops are operating without a “status of forces” agreement. In 2010 Biden wrongheadedly assured the American public that the withdrawal from Iraq “is one of the greatest achievements” of the Clinton-Obama administration, but another instance of innocence blatantly applied. One can objectively conclude that the Iranian agreement, as with the withdrawal from Iraq, is the result of an administration adrift in naiveté. The sum of facts founded on deductive deduction persuades one to believe that Clinton’s progressive Democrats lack a commonsensical understanding of world affairs. While Trump tweets nonsensical jabs of blank importance that fundamentally injure only his own persona, Clinton and President Obama’s policy decisions have actually caused death and destruction. They have, with the aid and assist of a dedicated cadre of liberal progressives, advanced otherwise unnecessary Diaspora of refugees and general mayhem throughout Europe. Conclusively, Trump is the only possible choice; Hillary Clinton is an anathema to a conservative America.
