Stupidocrisy: ’60 Minutes’ Pay to Play :: By Bill Wilson

Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) bucked the system. His COVID 19 policies defied ‘wokeness’ by not shutting down the state’s entire economy and quarantining healthy people. He didn’t send COVID-infected people to nursing homes. He didn’t release COVID-infected prisoners from jail. He didn’t force people to stay at home and wear masks. He didn’t follow the cancel culture’s rules of engagement. His state showed tremendous progress. Can’t have that.

DeSantis seems to have stunning common sense that is winning the day. DeSantis is looking like a threat to future Democratic presidential hopefuls. So CBS’s “60 Minutes” decides to put an end to DeSantis by fabricating a narrative. After all, it usually works.

But this time, the poster child for fake news got caught with its lying fingers on the edit machine. 60 Minutes correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi attempted a political assassination with her story that DeSantis had accepted a $100,000 pay-to-play political donation from Publix supermarkets in return for awarding Publix a COVID vaccine distribution contract. Problem was the story was an entire fabrication.

60 Minutes edited DeSantis’ responses to Alfonsi at a news conference to make it look like DeSantis was guilty, when in reality, DeSantis totally debunked her narrative. His account was also backed by elected Democratic Party officials, who were pleased with the governor’s vaccine distribution plans.

To top it off as an example of how corporate media works together to promote false and damaging narratives, Breitbart News reports the unedited video of the governor’s response to Alfonsi was removed from YouTube after conservatives began sharing it.

Let’s roll back the clock to August 2016 when Judicial Watch revealed some 745 State Department documents and emails, in which Hillary Clinton’s top State Department aide Huma Abedin “provided expedited, direct access to Clinton for donors who had contributed from $25,000 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. In many instances, Clinton Foundation top executive Doug Band, who worked with the Foundation throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure at State, coordinated closely with Abedin.”

That was just one small aspect of Clinton’s pay-to-play machine. But what did we hear from 60 Minutes back then? Crickets. Mainstream media refused to cover Clinton’s documented pay-to-play scheme.

Roll the tape forward a bit. The mainstream media refused to cover Joe Biden’s pay-for-play scheme with Ukraine, Russia and China through his various family members, documented in the tens of millions of dollars. But DeSantis actually does a good service, and 60 Minutes fabricates a pay-to-play bribery scheme.

In Exodus 23:8, the Lord says, “And you shall take no bribe: for the bribe blinds the wise, and perverts the words of the righteous.”

Clinton and Biden are proven to enrich themselves with bribes and get away with it scot-free, while an innocent man is accused mercilessly. Say it with me… Stupidocrisy.
