Letter: A tail of two rallies

There have now been two rallies in October in Pueblo, Colorado.

It’s pretty obvious which rally had the numbers, which had the energy — especially given Hillary Clinton bused in Democrat party toadies to enhance her crowd.

While Republican Party leadership has distanced itself from Trump — while Paul Ryan renounces Trump — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in promoting divided government in effect endorses Clinton. Both U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner and U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman renounce Trump, as do over two dozen other Republican and D.C. trough swillers.

Uniparty D.C. and Denver leadership back Clinton. National, regional and local media for the most part back Clinton. Billionaire, tech, bankers, Wall street, and crony corporatists overwhelmingly back Clinton.  Universities of privilege and connections back Clinton. Pollsters and pundits largely back Clinton.

Clinton may draw a few hundred to her rallies. Trump regularly draws thousands, often exceeding 10,000.  With that disparity it’s undeniable why the numbers and energy are behind Trump. Even some in local media pump up Clinton’s numbers, enhance and massage her message; while when they cover Donald Trump they pick nits with what he says. But these same journalists go out of their way to throw in something positive about Hillary Clinton.

Sen. Michael Bennet and Gardner are Democrat and Republican senators working together to elect Clinton and pass and fund the D.C. and Denver uniparty, donor and internationalist agendas.
