Last week, as the stock market lost $3 trillion in value and as millions of Americans saw their 401ks shrink, Trump-hating Americans were giving each other a collective “high-five” at the prospect that the Coronavirus could finally prove to be the death knell of the Trump Presidency and of Donald Trump himself. The Democrats and their sycophants in the media had long ago embarked on a “death by a thousand cuts” campaign, to no avail: The Access-Hollywood Tape, Stormy Daniels, Russia Collusion, Abuse of Power, Obstruction of Justice, Bribery, Quid Pro Quo, Impeachment, Russia 2. When was the last time you heard any of these words/terms mentioned by a single Democrat, political pundit or anchor/contributor on MSNBC or CNN?
The Coronavirus scare is only their most-recent attempt to bring down a duly-elected president. In the face of each of these attempts while battling the 93 percent negative media coverage he receives, President Trump continues to log success after success. Just several days ago, the President was in the process of signing a peace deal with the Taliban to end the nearly two-decades long war in Afghanistan, the longest war in American history. This was a war over which Barack Obama presided during every day of his presidency, yet, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while President Trump’s peace deal was given little – if any – coverage by the mainstream media who chose instead to use their airtime blaming him for the Coronavirus.
As Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, famously said: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that…..it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” This mantra has become the Democrat Party’s “Prime Directive.” It is not a new idea. It comes from the mind of radical-leftist community organizer Saul Alinsky, whose book “Rules for Radicals” is the Left’s bible, it’s playbook. As a community organizer, Barack Obama had his well-worn copy committed to memory, cover to cover… and referred to it more often than Andy Reid referred to his own playbook during the Super Bowl. Every Democrat and every mainstream media-type has his or her own copy.
But, to Saul Alinsky, merely taking advantage of a crisis was not enough. Alinsky said, “In the beginning the organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems.” In essence, if no crisis exists, they must create one in order to then blame their opponent for both the crisis and it’s fallout. Does this sound like what we’re living through with the Coronavirus outbreak? How many times during the Impeachment Hoax did the Democrats utter the phrase “Constitutional crisis”? How many times did they accuse Trump of creating a “manufactured crisis” at our southern border……only to later be forced to admit that there was – in fact – a crisis….for which they blamed the President?
Coronavirus: Manufactured crisis? Projection? The Democrats have turned the art of projection into a science and they are masters at it. The Democrats and the media have worked assiduously to put forth various “Chicken Little” scenarios and scare tactics designed to prevent the American People from going to work, going to school, going out to eat, going on vacation, spending any money whatsoever…..in order to drive the economy into the ground and this country into a recession.
In June, 2018, Bill Maher said on his HBO show, “Real Time with Bill Maher”: “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession, or you lose your democracy.”
So deeply does his hatred for this president run that Bill Maher would rather see Americans suffer, so long as Donald Trump is destroyed. As a wealthy “entertainer,” as a member of one of America’s “protected classes,” Maher can make these kinds of statements with impunity from his safe perch. Given his untold wealth, a recession would not affect him in the least. This man from the “tolerant,” “diverse,” “inclusive” Left simply doesn’t care what happens to those outside his bubble.
Maher is not alone. The Left’s disdain for the average American who does not share their beliefs has been evident for years and it is becoming more overt with each passing day. If you do not adhere to their leftist ideology, they will destroy you, regardless of your race, gender, religion or sexual orientation. To the left, politics trumps EVERYTHING. If you want to know how tolerant, diverse and inclusive is the Democrat Party or a self-described liberal, observe how they treat an African-American, a woman, an LGBTQ member or a Muslim who dares to embrace, espouse and speak out on conservative values or – HEAVEN FORBID – speak out in favor of President Trump.
Bill Maher’s comment notwithstanding, there is ample evidence to support my assertion. In October of 2010, President Obama stated: “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.” In October 2018, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: “If there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it.”
The Democrats make EVERYTHING political. They’ve politicized our sports, our movies, our music, our television, our religion, our advertising, our culture, our society…..simply everything. In their quest for power and control, they’ve injected politics and political-correctness into every aspect of American life to the point where it’s now simply unavoidable. Now, it’s the Coronavirus.
During the Ebola Crisis, when people were literally disintegrating and dropping like flies, when an Ebola diagnosis was nearly tantamount to a death sentence, the Democrats and their propaganda department, the mainstream media, played down the crisis. They circled the wagons around Barack Obama, essentially telling us “he’s got this” and “there’s nothing to see here.” Now, during the Coronavirus outbreak, these same people are not only not trying to ease the concerns of the American People by at least making an attempt to support President Trump, but they are blaming him for the spread of the virus and some for the very existence of the virus itself, all in an effort to cause widespread panic, to crash the Stock Market, to tank the economy and to drive us into a recession simply to get rid of this man whom they so despise. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to discover that the Democrats and the media are working in concert with the Chinese, so strategically-planned does this outbreak appear to be during President Trump’s reelection campaign. Bill Maher must be simply agog.
The Left’s level of hatred knows no bounds and the level to which they will stoop to bring down this duly-elected president would shock even the most-cynical political quidnunc…….and I count myself among them.
Just this past week, the Associated Press called out Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg for their inaccurate comments (read: LIES) in which they said health agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health faced funding cuts and fingered President Trump for restricting resources to those agencies in an effort to blame him for the spread of the Coronavirus.
Last week, Gail Collins, Opinion Writer for the New York Times, wrote a piece called “Let’s Call It Trumpvirus: If you’re feeling awful, you know who to blame.” Meanwhile, Democrat party strategist, Caroline Heldman, appeared on CNN and called the Coronavirus outbreak a “very good opening for Democrats.” Simply breathtaking.
Even as they work overtime to convince us that we are on the precipice of a pandemic and that millions of people all over the world could become very ill and die, the Left have seized upon an opportunity for the Democrats to score political points, to politicize and weaponize the Coronavirus and to destroy Donald Trump. Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s statement bears repeating here: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that…..it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” What they could not do before, try as they might, was bring down Donald Trump.
The same people who feign concern for the poor, illegal immigrants who have made the arduous caravan journey to the United States, only to be “put in cages and forced to drink toilet water,” the same people who feign concern for “babies being ripped out of their mothers’ arms” at our border……or who feign concern for children every time there is a school shooting……are using the potential sickness and death of Americans, including children (the most-vulnerable) as a political weapon against President Trump.
These same people, the Democrats……this week, as Americans were preoccupied with the Coronavirus, the collapse of the Stock Market and the evaporation of their 401ks……..voted to block the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” from being brought to a final vote on the Senate floor, leaving open loopholes that allow medical staff to abuse and kill newborn babies in 35 states, with zero fear of legal consequences. 41 Democrat Senators did not want to allow the up or down vote on this bill which bans infanticide. Remember, these are the same people who call President Trump “Hitler”.
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act ensures that any infant who survives an attempted abortion is a legal person and will be treated with the same human dignity, respect, and treatment as any baby born after an attempted live birth. The bill also states that anyone who intentionally performs or attempts to perform an overt act that kills a child born alive shall be punished for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being.
All (past/present) prominent Democrat 2020 presidential candidates in the Senate voted down the bill, including Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren. That would be the same Elizabeth Warren who – during last week’s debate while recalling pregnancy discrimination she claims to have faced as a special education teacher – attacked Michael Bloomberg: “At least I didn’t have a boss who said ‘kill it’ the way that Mayor Bloomberg is alleged to have said to one of his pregnant employees.”
This same pro-abortion Elizabeth Warren, by turning Bloomberg’s quote on him and using it to attack him as she did, effectively admitted on national television that abortion is murder in order to make her case that Bloomberg is “the riskiest candidate for the Democrats to choose as their nominee.” Yet, by her own pro-abortion stance and by her own vote to block the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” Elizabeth Warren is herself, by her own definition, demonstrating that she is in favor of murder even as she attacks Mike Bloomberg for same……saying that this makes HIM “the riskiest” choice. Really? REALLY?
Call it textbook hypocrisy. Call it projection. Call it “the pot calling the kettle black.” The woman has no core and ZERO self-awareness. For the record, Elizabeth Warren was not fired for being pregnant. This is another of her many lies which has repeatedly been debunked, including by Warren herself, who – on videotape – has told a very different story about why she left her teaching job.
Also, for the record, we are talking about the same Democrat Party whose Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, once defended MS-13 gang members when President Trump called them “animals” by asking: “Does he (Trump) not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?” Pelosi, too, is pro-abortion, pro Planned Parenthood. One would question whether she believes in the “spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person” including the newly-born American citizens that the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act sought to preserve. By Elizabeth Warren’s own definition, is not Nancy Pelosi pro-murder as well and, as such, is she also not “risky” for this nation?
Just as with the story of President Trump’s peace deal with the Taliban, so too has the story of the Democrats’ blockage of the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” been eclipsed by the coverage of the Coronavirus outbreak, the Stock Market plunge and the Democrat Primaries. Despite the handful of Americans who have contracted the Coronavirus, the Democrats and the media will continue to make “the sky is falling” predictions even as they ignore the fact that 50,000 Americans die each year from the Flu and the same number from Opiods.
For the record, there are more than 330 million people in this country. As of this writing (3/2/2020) there are 60 confirmed cases of Coronavirus and two deaths, both in Washington State. The second victim was a man in his 70s who already had a number of underlying health problems.
In a few weeks, Spring will arrive, the temperature will warm and the Coronavirus will become a faded memory. You’ll recall that the Ebola outbreak was a 24-hour news story intended to demonstrate what a great leader Barack Obama was and what a great job he was doing in protecting the American People. After having served it’s political purpose, the word Ebola was suddenly never mentioned again. The word Coronavirus will eventually suffer the same fate once polls show that Americans have realized they were once again victims of the Democrats’ “the little boy who cried WOLF!” tactics. Then, the Democrats and the media will conjure up another manufactured crisis which they’ll use as a political cudgel in another feeble attempt to bring down President Trump. It’s who they are. They simply cannot help themselves.
The Democrat Party is the architect of it’s own demise. They have allowed the most-radical, hateful and anti-American in their midst to take control and to pull even once-moderate Democrats further left, leaving the Party marred, “Mahered” and mired by the muck being spewed by members of their Party which has been allowed to go unchecked. But it’s not just elected Democrats spewing the venom. In fact, this weekend “comedian” John Mulaney hosted Saturday Night Live” and joked about how President Trump should be stabbed like Julius Caesar. Mulaney quipped:
“Leap Year began in 45 B.C. under Julius Caesar. Another thing that happened under Julius Caesar, he was such a powerful maniac that all the senators grabbed knives and they stabbed him to death. That would be an interesting thing if we brought that back now.”
Will the Secret Service pay Mulaney a visit? No. But, rest assured, on November 3rd, a collective pox will be visited upon the radical, America-hating progressive leftists, socialists, communists and Marxists who seek to destroy this country and to disenfranchise the 63 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 as well as the millions more who will vote for him in November of this year. That includes Bill Maher. And you and I will have the pleasure of watching it in REAL TIME.
