Hillary and her Media Suddenly find themselves in the Mutara Nebula

kahn

Capt. Spock: She can out-​run us and out-​gun us. But there is the Mutara Neb­ula at one five three mark four.
Admi­ral Kirk: Scotty, can we make it inside?
Mr. Scott: The energiser’s bypassed like a Christ­mas tree, …so don’t give me too many bumps.
Capt Kirk: No promises. On your way.
Mr. Saavik: Trou­ble with the neb­ula, sir, is all that sta­tic dis­charge and gas clouds our tac­ti­cal dis­play. Visual won’t func­tion and shields will be use­less.
Capt Spock: Sauce for the goose, Mis­ter Saavik. The odds will be even.

There is a lot to say about the FBI bomb­shell that dropped yes­ter­day on the 2016 cam­paign but what struck me the most about it was how it illus­trated how help­less a Demo­c­rat cam­paign in gen­eral and Hillary Clinton’s cam­paign in par­tic­u­lar is with­out their nor­mal advantages.

Con­sider, for years we con­ser­v­a­tives have been stat­ing that the media are sim­ply an exten­sion of the Demo­c­ra­tic party work­ing to elect them. This is done in sev­eral ways

  • Pro­mot­ing state & local sto­ries to national ones that favor a Demo­c­rat meme
  • Ignor­ing state & local sto­ries to national ones that favor a Demo­c­rat meme
  • Coor­di­nat­ing sto­ries with Democ­rats so they are ready to exploit favor­able ones and answer unfa­vor­able ones when they are released.
  • Cre­at­ing an United meme so a par­tic­u­lar theme is pushed through out media.

And unlike the past when we could pro­duce data sup­port­ing this, now we have Wik­ileaks actu­ally demon­strat­ing how this has been going on in their own words.

That brings us to the re-​opening of the FBI inves­ti­ga­tion of the Clin­ton emails.

For only the 2nd time in the cam­paign the Democ­rats and media in gen­eral and the Hillary Clin­ton Cam­paign in par­tic­u­lar were caught flat footed on a story.

  • It was a story released with­out their con­trol thus they could not kill it
  • It was a story released through the national law enforce­ment agency so they could not ignore it.
  • Because they did not have con­trol they were unable to answer or defend the story.
  • Because they were unable to coor­di­nate they did not have a united meme ready to push to the public

They found them­selves like a boxer who had been fed a steady diet of oppo­nents tak­ing dives sud­denly fac­ing an oppo­nent who is not on the take or like Kahn once he entered the Mutara Neb­ula they found them­selves hav­ing to fight on a level play­ing field.

The GOP will only have a few days of advan­tage, Hillary still owns the refs (read MSM) and by the time this piece goes up they might even now have set­tled on a coor­di­nated message/​meme to answer this stuff, but for at least two days you’ll be able to see how a Clin­ton Admin­is­tra­tion will deal with an unex­pected cri­sis if in power.

It should be quite infor­ma­tive to voters.

There is a lot to say about the FBI bombshell that dropped yesterday on the 2016 campaign but what struck me the most about it was how it illustrated how helpless a Democrat campaign in general and Hillary Clinton’s campaign in particular is without their normal advantages.

Consider, for years we conservatives have been stating that the media are simply an extension of the Democratic party working to elect them. This is done in several ways

  • Promoting state & local stories to national ones that favor a Democrat meme
  • Ignoring state & local stories to national ones that favor a Democrat meme
  • Coordinating stories with Democrats so they are ready to exploit favorable ones and answer unfavorable ones when they are released.
  • Creating an United meme so a particular theme is pushed through out media.

And unlike the past when we could produce data supporting this, now we have Wikileaks actually demonstrating how this has been going on in their own words.

That brings us to the re-opening of the FBI investigation of the Clinton emails.

For only the 2nd time in the campaign the Democrats and media in general and the Hillary Clinton Campaign in particular were caught flat footed on a story.

  • It was a story released without their control thus they could not kill it
  • It was a story released through the national law enforcement agency so they could not ignore it.
  • Because they did not have control they were unable to answer or defend the story.
  • Because they were unable to coordinate they did not have a united meme ready to push to the public

They found themselves like a boxer who had been fed a steady diet of opponents taking dives suddenly facing an opponent who is not on the take or like Kahn once he entered the Mutara Nebula they found themselves having to fight on a level playing field.

The GOP will only have a few days of advantage, Hillary still owns the refs (read MSM) and by the time this piece goes up they might even now have settled on a coordinated message/meme to answer this stuff, but for at least two days you’ll be able to see how a Clinton Administration will deal with an unexpected crisis if in power.

It should be quite informative to voters.
