Yet again the British media was last night pumping out more stories about Donald Trump gaffes. The beltway classes think that what he says is big news and has The Donald sunk in the Presidential Race. By my calculations that is about the 9,784th time that the BBC, Channel 4, the Guardian and the liberal press pack have written the Trump political obituary. One day they will be right. But so far they have been wrong 9,783 times with no apology. The bigger stories which they are not reporting are the growing scandals surrounding crooked Hillary.
Offered the choice between a nutty maverick or a crooked lying career politician many Americans will go for the former whatever lies CNN and its liberal media pals pump out. The media elite is so deeply in bed with the political elite, metaphorically not in a Bill Clinton forcing himself on interns manner, that the press pack just cannot understand that.
So what's the latest on crooked Hillary? The word is that multiple FBI investigations are now underway involving potential corruption charges against the Clinton Foundation. The investigation centers on New York City, where the Clinton Foundation has its main offices - up in Harlem, and the NY probe is led by Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara’s work has resulted in a large number of convictions of banks, hedge funds and Wall Street crooks. Preet seems like a tough bastard and Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and the giant money making machine that is the Foundation are now the quarry.
The Clinton foundation will take money from just about any scoundrel on this planet and hands it out to whoever Bill is screwing at the time, that is to say not Hillary. It also gives money to "good causes". It is a vast organisation and Hillary is deeply involved as she has been in most of the Clinton scandals back to Whitewater and beyond.
It is now less than 90 days to polling, this investigation will move fast, there will be press leaks and it will play badly for crooked Hillary. Most Americans don't trust her but by the fall no-one will. As I have noted many times, in every campaign Hillary has ever fought her poll ratings only head one way. The more folks learn about her the less they like her or, more importantly, trust her.
In Britain we seem happy with the idea of big Government. In the US there is an inherent mistrust of Big Government, of corrupt men and women with their fingers in the pork barrel. Hillary Clinton is the epitomy of that world inside the beltway. And folks think she is corrupt and untrustworthy. There will be growing evidence coming out of the Foundation and more leaked emails to support that view all the way until polling day.
All that the Donald needs to do is put his foot in his mouth just that little bit less often and Crooked Hillary will gift him the keys to the White House.
