Donald Trump is Satan! That’s the word on the street — and it was, three years ago. He’s an admitted sex abuser — just ask Hillary Clinton. He’s plunged us into a constitutional crisis — Hil knows that, too (here). He’s a white supremacist — just ask Don Lemon. He’s Hitler — just ask MSNBC (here). He wants to serially murder people — just ask them that, as well (here). And he’s POOPING ON YOU! (here.)
He even made fun of a mentally handicapped person — just ask Meryl Streep (here).
(But he didn’t — just ask this meme:)
The media and Democratic politicians went into full Idiot Mode once Trump looked like a contender, and they haven’t stopped since. Any normal person would’ve hidden in a crater, but The Donald stood up and was all, “Watch this”– and won the cotton-pickin’ White House.
So now that the Donkey Party’s tryin’ to kick its way back into the Oval Office, where’s the press’s nano-level scrutiny of the Left’s 2020 hopes?
It is, of course, non-existent. That lab’s closed.
But if this were an alternate universe and they cared about reporting the news…if they were interested in even-handedly dissecting those poised to lead the free world, what would they do with this piece of journalistic catnip?–
Allegedly confirmed by several court documents released Thursday, presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand’s family was in a sex cult. Her dad worked for it.
If you’ve forgotten who Kirsten is, she’s the chick who wants to give drivers licenses to illegals (here), abolish ICE (here), and who believes Trump’s immigration policies are — just as Lucky Charms is magically delicious — magically racist (here).
MmmMMMM. I love Lucky Charms!
But it ain’t too charmin’ that Gillibrand’s old man was working for a sex — I mean, gender(?) — cult.
Big League politics reports eyewitness John Tighe’s account of how the New York senator sat at the NXIM table for a Hillary fundraiser:
“The very first time I ever met Gillibrand she was at an event for Hillary Clinton in the Hall of Springs in the State Park. This was in 2006. … I was on the Democratic committee at the time and was given two comp tickets. Gillibrand came up to me introduced herself and said she was running against John Sweeney. … I then commented to Mike that with her baby voice and demeanor that she was a lightweight. Boy was I wrong. But the kicker was when the mixing was over and Clinton went to speak. Gillibrand sat with one of the front tables. Yeah the three front VIP tables were all brought by NXIVM and she was sitting with (group co-founder) Nancy Salzman. You can quote me on that.”
And what’s NXIVM?
Here’s Wikipedia’s summary:
NXIVM has been labeled by several journalists as a pyramid scheme, a sex-trafficking operation, and a sex cult. NXIVM has also been accused by former members of the organization of being a recruiting platform for a cult operating within it (variously called “DOS” or “The Vow”) in which women were branded and forced into sexual slavery.
Back to BLP:
Former NXIVM employee Frank Parlato provided Big League Politics with copies of the court documents in NXIM’s suit against [Gillibrand’s father, Doug Rutnik], which prove Rutnik’s employment by the group.
“At the time I worked for them I thought they were a little peculiar but it wasn’t until the end that I realized they were a downright evil group.”
“There are women on the record who are now adults who have accused Raniere of statutory rape and there are some very suspicious incidents where Mexican girls came under the perimeters of Raniere’s control and left under suspicious circumstances. They came from Chihuahua Mexico. I reported this to the authorities,” Parlato said.
“Her father Doug Rutnik came to work as a consultant for NXIVM…he was fired, they sued him, and he had to pay them $100,000,” Parlato said, referring Gillibrand’s father.
“Her father’s wife, her stepmother, was also a member of NXIVM…Doug got her into the cult, Gillibrand’s father got Gillibrand’s future stepmother into the cult. Doug left the cult because he was sued. (“Sex cult heiress“) Clare Bronfman after her father was sued donated money to Gillibrand. Gillibrand accepted it.”
“One is inclined to call her a liar,” Parlato says of Gillibrand.
Now here’s a jucier tidbit about the group from Gothamist:
A second ringleader of NXIVM, the alleged upstate cult and sex trafficking ring, pleaded guilty in a Brooklyn federal court last week, and newly unsealed court papers add another dark dimension to the ongoing revelations about the cult. As part of her guilty plea, Lauren Salzman, daughter to…Nancy Salzman, reportedly admitted to holding a woman against her will for years, under threat of deportation.
“I knowingly and intentionally harbored Jane Doe 4, a woman whose identity is known to me, in a room in the home in the Northern District of New York” from March 2010 to April 2012, Salzman told judge Nicholas Garaufis, according to court papers obtained by the NY Post. She reportedly added that she warned her captive that non-compliance with the group’s labor demands would mean a return to Mexico. She also admitted to being a member of NXIVM’s secret society, DOS, the subset of the purported “self-help” group that branded women and inducted them into sexual servitude.
Holy moley. Sound the alarms! Let the media attack dogs tear into this. Soon, it’ll be all anyone’s talkin’ about. Like Trump’s “Grab them by the p****” comment…or his Stormy Daniels episode…or his dad’s imparting gift of millions…or RUSSIA COLLUSION RUSSIA COLLUSION RUSSIA COLLUSION. It’s a meaty story. If only we were living in a different, CNN-has-dignity world (here).
But we ain’t.
Nevertheless, it seems to me that the guy who withstood the jaw-droppingly biased coverage last time is poised to do it again. And — like a teflon Democratic candidate who needn’t worry about the media’s sex-cult coverage, The Donald’s not worried about 2020. Right at this moment, as a matter of fact — reeling from the MSM’s crushing defeat by the Mueller report (here, here, here, and here) and high on life — he’s probably doing exactly this:
