The Driveby Media’s History of Taking Kooky Conspiracy Theories and Running With Them…

Excerpt From: The Daily Haymaker. Written By: Brant Clifton.

Never mind that the whole Trump-and-Russia worked together to deny Hillary The White House story has no evidence to support it and is looking more and more like the stinky piece of crap that it is.   The Democrats and their accomplices in the driveby media have picked up the ball and are determined to run it across the goal line.  No matter how many reputations are ruined.  No matter how much damage is done to the national morale or the nation’s security.  

But THIS is not the first time they’ve done it.  It is not the first time a story accusing a Republican presidential campaign of conspiring with an evil foreign power to screw Democrats has been trumpeted in the national headline.  In 1980, a bunch of Carter-era national security types went public with a yarn about how the Reagan-Bush campaign sent a secret delegation to Iran to urge the Iranians NOT to release the American hostages being held there until after the American election was over.

Just as with the current Trump-Russia nonsense, there was no evidence to support this Iran “October Surprise” hogwash.  One of the accusers got a book published, entitled — naturally — ‘October Surprise.’  The author got a lot of TV face-time that allowed him to beat up, unchallenged, the new Reagan-Bush team.

Despite the lack of factual basis, the Democrats on Capitol Hill howled about the ‘October Surprise.’  They demanded hearings.  They demanded legal action.  (Sound familiar?)

Here in North Carolina in 2016, there is yet one more example.  The filthy lying N&O is teaming up with something called The Southern Coalition for Social Justice to spin a yarn aimed at whipping up racial tensions in Robeson County.

I have a dog in this particular fight.  Robeson County is my ancestral home.  It’s been sickening to watch corruption, the welfare state and racial agitators tear the place apart.  What had once been a wonderful place to live has now been turned into a socialist crime-infested hellhole.
