Hilary Clinton and 50 Shades of Grey

Hilary Clinton and 50 Shades of Grey

HRC’s relationship with the Press is akin to that of Christian Grey to Anastasia Steele.

Yesterday, when Clinton allegedly suffered a Heat Stroke because of newly diagnosed pneumonia, the Press was in the dark for over 90 minutes. Her security detail made it a point to ensure no Press would know what was happening until she came out. The diagnosis of pneumonia wasn’t actually released until much later.

Now, a point that is being overlooked is why HRC was immediately taken to her daughter’s apartment and not the hospital. For a woman of her age, with her previous and continuing conditions, given her potential presidential status, why was she not taken to a hospital? Was it to keep the Press in the dark? It’s reasonable to question, but no one is able to get answers.

Yet this sort of treatment is nothing new; she’s been avoiding holding a Press Conference for 280 days. For years she’s chosen to “not respond” to questioning or answer “no comment.” Imagine any other politician, especially in such prominence, being able to get away with this behavior.

She ignores and refuses the Press while they beg for more. They find no issue being chained, being used for her own agenda, orgasming from her rare words, only yearning for more.

And still, the media continues to hold her in such high regard, to the point of promoting her campaign, not reporting it. So much that even Chris Como can’t help but point out the blatancy of bias towards Clinton:

Even with her treatment of the Press, they beg for more and are always quick to support her. Countless reporters have passed the line of reporting the news to reporting their opinion. A thin but bold line when it is clearly crossed.

As a point of reference, how many stories have been reported on her rallies? We would be led to believe, through photos and stories, that they’re full and representative of how her overwhelmingly large number of supporters feel. But that’s simply not true.


When will these Journalists be unchained; when will they stop begging for more? Even as she whips them and uses them, they can’t help but plead for more. Just as E.L. James wrote in 50 Shades of Grey,

“There’s a very thin line between pleasure and pain. They are two sides of the same coin, one not existing without the other.”

But as E.L. James wrote and Hilary Clinton knows, “to achieve success in any scheme one has to make oneself master of that scheme, know it inside and out, know every detail.”

Hilary Rodham Clinton knows exactly how to play the media to promote her agenda; she’s been doing it for 40 years. While she avoids the Press and any questions that don’t behoove her notions, journalists continue to swoon and give her undue credit; a weak Anastasia on her knees at the call of Christian Grey.

She has played the media and consequently us; giving us just enough to stay interested, not tipping over that threshold but just enough so its clear who has power.

But let us remember that the function of political journalists is to keep our representatives in check, not promote their campaign and agenda. When they are not doing that, we must stand up and speak out. It is our duty; our obligation as citizens to hold true to our principles and values.

We have been and continue to be lied to by the current form of media, “simply a Heat Stroke” the newest example. We must the ones that stand up to this. We must be the ones that take a stand and take control of what information we are fed. We must break the chains and be the ones that take the whip.

A Tale of Two Wolves

IMG_1589An old Cherokee told his grandson, “My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil; It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego. The other is Good; it is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth. The boy thought about it and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf wins?” The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed.”
