The media and Democratic congresspersons have bombarded us with much anti-Trump, pro-liberal/Democrat, utter nonsense over the last few months.
I mean, more than the usual nonsense.
The fact that they continue to do so is further evidence of a brainwashed audience.
Tom Brokaw said, “We’re at war” because Donald Trump said something positive about Fox News – the only network that presents both sides. CNN and MSNBC declared war on civility long ago.
Racist Maxine Waters said she would “take out” Trump if she could. She was calling for impeachment before he took office. Go figure.
Hillary Clinton’s running mate and current U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine called for Democrats to “fight in the streets.” His son was part of an anti-Trump violent display in Minnesota. He was arrested, but nothing happened – what would be attributed to white privilege if he were a Republican. He’s a Democrat, so neither rules nor laws apply.
This is akin to former U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd, a person who spent approximately 10 years fourth in presidential succession order after serving as Exalted Cyclops and Grand Kleagle of the KKK. The media and Democrats pontificate that it’s no big deal because Byrd apologized and he really didn’t do anything but organize membership drives.
Yeah, bringing more hateful persons into a hateful organization really isn’t much. Excuse me, but if he had two fancy titles, and consequentially, different colored robes and accoutrements, chances are he did some nasty, criminal evil stuff. But he’s a Democrat, so all is well.
U.S. Sen. Mark Warner was on national television warning Donald Trump to not fire Hillary’s Uranium One accomplice, Robert Mueller, after he said several times that he has no intent of firing him. Warner cited “the rule of law.” Really? The rule of law. Hmmn, like, mayors and governors supporting sanctuary cities, thereby knowingly and willfully violating U.S. immigration law? Like Barack Obama telling illegal aliens to vote?
Speaking of Mueller and his Russian collusion “investigation,” just what is that? The bitter souls claiming collusion seem to think that meeting with anyone who may have unflattering information about St. Hillary the Entitled rises to the level of a high crime. It’s called “opposition research,” and all major candidates do it.
The very fake dossier that the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign (one in the same) laundered $12 million with which to pay friends and family of FBI people to procure is an example of collusion with not just Russia, but with the Obama administration.
That’s all Hillary could find on Trump: lies. Her pal Gloria Allred and others paraded women, some paid off, before the media to make claims against Trump. Where are they now?
Collusion. The whole Trump collusion claim is a joke. However, Clinton and Barack Obama, with the help of the FBI, State Department and Justice Department, colluded to rig the election. We recently learned that The (failing) New York Times gave Clinton 7-10-day advance notice of potentially damaging information that would become public.
And then there’s the whole Jim Comey penning an exoneration letter prior to the (ahem) “investigation’s” conclusion.
Obama tried to influence Brexit (lost), Israel’s election (lost), bugged an AP reporter, a Fox News reporter, and a world leader. Was Obama investigated and impeached and removed from office? How pathetic.
Yeah, Trump “colluded.” Very funny, and not ha-ha funny, but sad funny. They are afraid of what’s about to be revealed and they must beg, borrow and steal to remove Trump.
Remember, congressional Democrats pledged and promised to oppose everything Trump. Not one Democrat voted for any of us to keep more of our earnings. They cried that it’s a gift to the rich and to corporations. Well, if you work and receive a salary or a wage, you get to keep more of it.
This just in: corporations don’t pay tax per se; they add it to their prices. Before Trump signed it into law, several companies announced expansion, bonuses for workers and raises. No Democrat voted for it. They claim, “We can’t afford it,” which, defies reason. Democrats can’t afford us keeping our earnings? No – we can’t afford their spending.
There is no depth to which Democrats and the media will not dive. In the words of Thomas Sowell, “It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”
