New York Daily News Senior Justice Writer Shaun King took to twitter today to ask his followers a serious question today, which I will paraphrase for you, “Whaaaa Trump won the election how can we get rid of him now.” Seriously? Seriously? What the hell is the matter with you?
Last week we discussed how the Democrats are planning “Total War”, this week we see the continuation of exactly how low they are willing to go in order to take America over and remake it into the socialist utopia they dream about. Here are 7 ways they planned to go low, but actually ended up looking bad.
The fact of the matter is the radical Left is more concerned about shutting down conversation in order to achieve victory and when those tactics do not work they quickly escalate through name calling, shouting down and recently all out violence in order to stifle opposing viewpoints. I enjoy discussions where reasonable well thought-out arguments are encouraged, but over the last couple of years I tend to get recycled talking points without any original ideas. Here are the five things that Democrats say that immediately cause me to mentally disengage because if they are using one of these phrases they have already lost the argument.
Every action hides a sinister motive to usurp the will of the American voter. Russian agents infiltrating the highest levels of our government. A fetish fueled Manchurian candidate whose strings are being pulled by the Kremlin. A race against time to prevent the forces of evil from covering it all up. No this isn’t the plot of a recently found unpublished Tom Clancy novel. No this isn’t the Senate during the height of McCarthyism. Hell this isn’t even Boris saying, “Come Natasha we get moose now.” No this is what is being pedaled by mainstream media as legitimate reporting in 2017.
In an address to both houses of Congress that has been universally lauded by pundits from both sides of the aisle, President Trump may have stolen a march on the Democrats by doing exactly what they were not expecting, being Presidential. While President Trump appeared unifying and passionate as he laid out his policy agenda, Democrats looked like spoiled petulant children by comparison.
What is important for Democrats is that the calls for impeachment are made; made frequency and made loudly. To the Democrats, who have just declared “Total War”, the legal basis for impeachment is irrelevant. If you are able erode the trust of the public and hamstring the agenda of the President then an actual impeachment becomes a bonus prize. Make no mistake, Democrats know the likelihood of impeachment is low, but they will settle for a comatose Trump administration that is handicapped by legitimacy issues and they will ride roughshod over the American people to get there.
Can you guess what occurred with the Dow last Thursday? I have to ask you to guess because it got next to no coverage by the mainstream media and the coverage it did get was buried pretty deeply. According to CNN Money the Dow hit record closing for 10 straight days in a row. This is a pretty rare event as it has not happened since 1987. It is also has pretty big implications for every American because the Dow being up 5% since the start of the year means that both institutional investors and workers who have money in their 401K are both seeing great returns on their investments.
In life sometimes we laboriously make plans only to see them go sideways. Sometimes we do something spur of the moment and the outcome is not expected. Sometimes sh@t happens. Here are 9 cases that prove “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”
No I want to deal with the ominous undercurrent in the implication of the above statement that despite being outgunned, outmanned and in an inferior position to attack that is exactly what the Left is planning. The Democrat Party is essentially declaring total war and by doing so is only promising more of the same. The “same” being character attacks and identity politics and having no real discussions on policy issues unless they are sorties for personal attacks.
It is time for a reality check Democrats. Republicans hold the majority of power now and sooner rather later they are going to figure this out and stop acting like the minority party. When this occurs you can either have a seat at the table and have a hand in the agenda of the government or you can continue to move forward manufacturing outrage on a daily basis over anything and everything. Working with Republicans and the President means you can score victories which mean something for all your constituents. Being the party of hysteria and opposition means you score victories with a very radical left base.
