Once upon a time, the mainstream media worked very hard to maintain the illusion that they were "objective" and "unbiased" when it came to reporting on national elections, but those days are long gone.
Some of the biggest newspapers in the country, like the New York Times and the Washington Post, are publishing hit piece after hit piece in an all-out attempt to destroy Donald Trump. In fact, if you go to just about any prominent mainstream news website on any particular day, it is inevitable that you will find an anti-Trump story on the main page right near the top, and it is usually accompanied by a pro-Clinton story nearby. Of course the big cable news networks are constantly spewing an endless stream of anti-Trump propaganda as well. In fact, it has been documented that CNN has spent literally half their time on anti-Trump stories on certain days. The elite are desperate to keep Donald Trump out of the White House, and if that means shedding all notions of media objectivity and siccing their attack dogs on Trump day after day, then that is precisely what they are going to do.
Just look at how the media are covering the political response to the tragedy in Louisiana. Hillary Clinton has not visited the state. Barack Obama has not visited either, although he has finally been publicly shamed into scheduling a visit.
But Donald Trump took the time to go down and see the suffering firsthand, and he was greeted very warmly by cheering crowds. One supporter reportedly yelled out "we knew you'd be here, Mr. Trump," and the 18-wheeler full of supplies that he brought with him definitely helped a lot of hurting families.
Sadly, the mainstream media had to turn this into a negative story about how this was just a "photo op" for Trump, and an incredible amount of attention was given to one particular aid worker that is virulently anti-Trump. The following is a portion of what this aid worker had to say about Trump's visit:
"I don't want to see you in your suit in August carrying boxes off a truck like you care about us. Louisiana is an incredible place. Baton Rouge is my home and I have watched people drop everything to help one another during this time. The whole country seems to be floored by the generosity and love that our residents show each other during tough times, but to us this is normal. This is Louisiana. And you do not belong here."
Why doesn't Donald Trump belong there?
He is running for president—of course he belongs there.
But this is what the anti-Trump forces do. They spin every story into something negative about Trump.
What we have seen during this campaign season has been absolutely unprecedented. The following are just five headlines that I have picked out that show how incredibly biased the media is against Trump.
Could you imagine the mainstream media running similar headlines against Hillary Clinton?
It would be a shock if they did, because the media elite have been showering the Clintons with cash for a very long time. Politico has put together a list of major media organizations that have made "charitable contributions" to the Clinton Foundation over the past several years. As you can see, this list represents almost every major news organization, and the amounts of money that we are talking about are very large:
Chairman & CEO of Telmex, largest New York Times shareholder
Chief Operating Officer of 21st Century Fox
Florida-based conservative media network
Owner of the Reuters news service
News Corporation Foundation
Philanthropic arm of former Fox News parent company

Do you think that they are going to turn around and start trashing her now?
Of course not.
And they are not alone. The big Wall Street money has lined up behind Hillary Clinton in a major way, and meanwhile Donald Trump is really struggling to raise money:
Trump's campaign committee reported $18.5 million in disbursements in July, up from $7.8 million in June, according to a Federal Election Commission report released Saturday. That compares with the roughly $38.2 million spent by his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton and falls well short of what recent nominees have spent.
With all that money, Hillary Clinton can do some unprecedented things.
One thing she has done is to invest more than a million dollars in an army of online trolls that are pushing pro-Clinton propaganda all over the Internet and that are attacking websites that are pro-Trump:
Correct The Record will invest more than $1 million into Barrier Breakers 2016 activities, including the more than tripling of its digital operation to engage in online messaging both for Secretary Clinton and to push back against attackers on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and Instagram. Barrier Breakers 2016 is a project of Correct The Record and the brainchild of David Brock, and the task force will be overseen by President of Correct The Record Brad Woodhouse and Digital Director Benjamin Fischbein. The task force staff's backgrounds are as diverse as the community they will be engaging with and include former reporters, bloggers, public affairs specialists, designers, Ready for Hillary alumni, and Hillary super fans who have led groups similar to those with which the task force will organize.
One of the tasks of these trolls is to try to refute or "disappear" information that casts Clinton in a bad light. The Clinton campaign has worked very hard to try to suppress damaging information about her health, and the mainstream media has very much helped her out in this regard, but it is becoming exceedingly apparent that there is something seriously wrong with her. The following comes from an article by Makia Fremman:
Up until two weeks ago, Hillary had done a successful job of hiding her serious health problems—but it's all come out now, and it's quite scary. We have evidence in the form of leaked emails, leaked reports from insiders, photos and video clips that the real Hillary Clinton has a whole host of health issues, including:
– being regularly confused;
– becoming dazed and distracted (e.g. calling Donald Trump her husband);
– having "short circuits" where she loses it mid-sentence;
– having a bizarre hole in her tongue;
– indulging in utterly inappropriate laughter;
– erupting into barely containable coughing fits;
– adopting wild crossed-eyed looks; and
– going into convulsive seizures on camera in public.
For a while after the conventions were done, it looked like Hillary Clinton was building a big lead, but now the polls have tightened up again.
In recent months, I have been asked repeatedly about whether or not I think that Donald Trump will win the election. So I produced a video on this subject that you can view right here.
At this moment, we are about two and a half months away from the election.
The mainstream media will continue their endless assaults on Trump, the elite will continue to shower the Clinton campaign with unprecedented amounts of cash, and we will likely see even more establishment Republicans come out and publicly pledge to vote for Hillary Clinton.
But if that isn't enough, the elite certainly have even more dirty tricks in their playbook, and it remains my contention that they will do whatever it takes to keep Donald Trump from ever setting foot in the White House.
