Why do they do this? You may be asking yourself this. Why does the left keep up this charade of Russian tampering? (And, by the way, it is now public knowledge that the Clinton campaign fabricated the fake Russia meme less than 24 hours after the election.)
You have to realize something. We were one election away from transforming this country into a socialist/globalist swamp, just like your average Western European nation. Everything else was in place. The only missing ingredient was Hillary Clinton’s election. And it didn’t materialize. Thank God! The formerly blue states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin made sure of it.
When Donald Trump promised to drain the swamp, he didn’t realize how broad, how deep and how tenacious the swamp truly is. None of us did. Progressives are by their nature despotic, and power is everything to despots. When they are deprived of it, or it is taken away, well, just look at the Democrat Party and #fakenews media, and you see what they become.
ObamaCare was the vehicle. We were on our way to a single-payer system, which means we were on our way to government-controlled healthcare. A lot of Americans were priced out of the market. A lot of insurance companies had already bailed on ObamaCare. This was by design. The plan was to create a system in which insurance companies could not possibly compete due to the unrealistic demands placed on them by government. And then the plan was to blame the insurance companies and their “greed” for dropping customers. (Liberals never take responsibility for the failure of their disastrous policies.) This, in turn, would lead to an eventual system where the federal government became the insurance company (with no competitors). The federal government would control the healthcare system. And when government controls healthcare, government controls you.
It wasn’t enough to create a pool just to cover the uninsured/uninsurable and leave the existing system intact. It was never about the 30,000,000 or 40,000,000 uninsured, or whatever the number was. It was about transforming the entire healthcare industry for all of us. Now the Republicans are in the process of undoing ObamaCare, or at least much of it. This is why the Democrats react to the AHCA like Dracula to the cross. They know Americans could not longer afford their ObamaCare premiums. They know the ObamaCare system, as it was originally constructed, was doomed to fail. It was designed to. Yet Democrats lie and continue to lie about ObamaCare, because that’s what Democrats do.
Progressives aren’t going away anytime soon. Do you remember the end of the second debate when each candidate was asked to name one good quality about his/her opponent? Donald Trump said the one thing he admired about Hillary Clinton was that she is not a quitter. And he’s right. Progressives don’t quit. The lust for political power (and often wealth to match) is the fuel that drives them. They don’t just pick themselves up after they lose and go do something else. There is no something else to them.
Let me share a tweet with you I saw last night.
There is one distinct feature of American culture that sets us apart from all the rest: the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment makes all the others possible. Those aren’t just words on a bumper sticker, either. Every despotic, totalitarian regime you can think of got that way because its populace was unarmed. The fact that we are armed to the teeth makes us like no other nation, past or present. Progressives despise the Second Amendment for this reason. They hate it more than all the rest. They may hate it more than all the rest combined. The Second Amendment may be the only thing standing in the way of the complete future subjugation of the American people.
The left would do away with the Second Amendment today if they could. But even if they did, most Americans would not willingly part with their firearms. There are on the order of 300 million guns in America, or very nearly one per person. If progressives want our guns, they will literally have to take them away, and taking away that many guns is a mighty tall order. If they ever tried it, there probably would be civil war.
I don’t know if some form of civil war is inevitable or not. I’m not predicting that level of violence. I don’t hope for it. I don’t advocate it. But I’m not entirely discounting the idea, either.
But I do know this: the American people awakened last November. Donald Trump literally tapped into and motivated a literal sleeping giant. The American ideal wasn’t dead, after all. (I knew it wasn’t.) If he succeeds the way I think he will — and I am predicting he will be a two-term president — it will take progressives decades to get back to where they were before Hillary Clinton was defeated. He will undo — and already has undone — a great deal of damage wrought by Barack Hussein Obama. He will appoint — and already has appointed — Constitutionalists to the federal courts.
The bad news is, get used to the daily barrage of #fakenews. To the left, Donald Trump’s election was illegitimate. It’s not illegitimate because he colluded with Russia to rig the election. It’s illegitimate simply because the Democrats lost, and they lost to a complete outsider who exposed them for the thugs and despots that they are. They’ve been pushing the climate change hoax for 30+ years, so don’t expect them to give up on the Russia hoax as long as they think they can get political mileage out of it.
The ironic part about the #fakenews barrage is that the #fakenews media and Democrats are falsely accusing President Trump of the corruption that they themselves are actually guilty of. They have accused President Trump of colluding with the Russians when they themselves are the ones who have colluded with Russia. It’s insidious, but it’s who progressives are. So we’re going to have to daily beat back the barrage of #fakenews while President Trump deconstructs the Obama presidency.
What can you do? Don’t watch #fakenews. And if you do happen to catch a sound bite by accident, immediately discount it. This is my default reaction to everything I hear from #fakenews.
Be the “go-to” person in your sphere of influence. Be the person your friends and family go to for political advice. Be able to explain these things to them. Just because you don’t have a TV show or a newspaper column doesn’t mean you don’t have influence.
Stay informed using sources other than #fakenews. As for me, I listen to the Rush Limbaugh Show daily. And I follow a handful of trusted conservatives on Twitter. I also read history. Lots of it. I do this because I love history, but also because progressives try to rewrite history. The more we learn and understand history, the harder it will be for progressives to rewrite it.
Be the kind of citizen and the kind of voter Democrats and #fakenews cannot lie to. If they cannot manipulate you, then you immediately become their enemy. This is why Hillary called us “deplorables” — and meant it.
Never vote Democrat. There are no good Democrats. Not a single one. And if you have the opportunity to support a conservative Republican against an establishment RINO (Senator Corker), then support him. Establishment RINO’s are part of the swamp, too.
Electing President Trump wasn’t the end. It was only the beginning. The swamp is deep and wide and locked in for battle. President Trump has a lot of resources at his disposal, but he still needs us. We are all he has. The entire Democrat Party is aligned against him. The entire #fakenews media is attempting to do to President Trump what it did to Richard Nixon (a great American). (The media won’t succeed with Trump, though.) Unfortunately, some establishment Republicans are against President Trump, as well. All President Trump has are the American people who voted for him. That’s me. I’m with Trump, and I’m not going away.
