Snap Quiz. Do you know who Marc Turi is?

Of course you don't. Marc Turi is an arms dealer who was indicted for weapons trafficking in Libya. That's the same Libya that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton turned into a failed state, now the home of ISIS and other Islamist terror groups, in case you forgot.

The main stream media has chosen not to cover Turi's story. Bet you can guess why.  Politico helps provide background:
The deal averts a trial that threatened to cast additional scrutiny on Hillary Clinton’s private emails as Secretary of State, and to expose reported Central Intelligence Agency attempts to arm rebels fighting Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi.

Government lawyers were facing a Wednesday deadline to produce documents to Turi’s legal team, and the trial was officially set to begin on Election Day, although it likely would have been delayed by protracted disputes about classified information in the case.

A Turi associate asserted that the government dropped the case because the proceedings could have embarrassed Clinton and President Barack Obama by calling attention to the reported role of their administration in supplying weapons that fell into the hands of Islamic extremist militants.
Hillary's trained hamsters in the mainstream media paid no attention. After all, when you have an 11-year old tape of Donald Trump talking about groping female body parts, you have to prioritize, don't you.

Over the past few days, there's been LOTS of very bad news about Hillary
  • Evidence that the Obama administration participated in a cover-up of Hillary's email server
  • Inexplicable immunity deals for Hillary's top aides (but why, Hillary did nothing wrong, did she?)
  • The city of Aleppo and the country of Syria disintegrating.
  • Obama suggesting the the Syria civil war was driven in part by Climate Change!!
  • Obamacare collapsing week by week.
  • A NSA contractor arrested for national security violations that are really quite similar to those committed by Hillary.
  • A new Wikileaks document dump indicating that Hillary is every bit as dishonest and corrupt as her detractors indicate.
But, of course, none of that matters when Donald Trump utters the word "pussy." Coverage of his distasteful video is 24-7, wall to wall, because, well, it works to destroy Hillary's opposition, something the hamsters need to do as polls tighten and their candidate seems threatened.

But please, spare us all the sanctimonious hypocrisy that accompanies Trump's latest idiocy. I hate to say it, but Trump's comments as a private citizen are certainly no worse than Bill Clinton's actions (and Hillary's defense of those actions) while he was president of the United States. I wonder if a media hamster will ask Hillary to publicly condemn her husband's extracurricular sexual activities while he was governor and president? Don't bet on it.

I find it fascinating that some of the very elites who are now demanding that Trump withdraw from the race are the same elites who voiced outrage that Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about one of his white house dalliances.

This presidential race is an embarrassment and a travesty. The choice is BAD and WORSE. It's up to each voter to select which candidate falls into which category. But it's hard to understand how an old video tape could be the deciding factor.
