The 2018 Guide to Resistance is out. It says for liberals to win, America must lose. The idle rich, Hollywood elite, insular bicoastal press, and academic Mafia will read it. Everyone else see it for what it is. Can we relate this to real life versus fake news for a moment?
I heard Erick speak a very important truth yesterday afternoon on the radio. He said that President Trump gave Andrew McCabe a hard time on Twitter, but so what: Trump treats everyone that way. Donald Trump is an equal opportunity horse's ass in public. If you want to call him a Nazi, call him the Soup Nazi, not the other kind. It doesn't matter if you're Trump's best friend, if you say something against him, or do something that annoys him, he's going to give you a hard time.
This is important because the self-styled Resistance wants to invent crimes and hang them on Trump's neck. Certainly, Trump has done what he felt he had to do to become president. He does what the pugnacious, thin-skinned homunculus beneath his blond locks compels him to do. Much of the time, that means being a horrific, vulgar jerk in public.
A year ago, the Resistance marched, whipped up into a frenzy of smug self-assurance that they are going to have their revenge on Trump for daring to win. A year later, companies are giving bonuses because of tax reform--tax reform that Trump personally pushed. I honestly think that Trump cared more about that issue than repealing Obamacare. (Health care is too much of a headache to understand and Trump lacks the attention span to learn it.)
A year ago, liberals were planning the impeachment party, and lining up their women-heavy agenda for 2018 and 2020. Today, many sex offenders (both hetero- and homosexual) have been exposed and excised from the public square, women are more empowered in traditionally man-centered industries like the media than ever, and even a porn star's accusations of a Trump sex scandal can't pull down the president. He's been pre-scumbagged, and the inoculation was very effective.
A year ago, liberals believed that Trump's low approval rating would win them control of Congress, and then the presidency. That may well still be possible, and it may well still happen. But it's not as likely as they think, and Democrats know it. The same people who marched a year ago are getting bonuses today. Home Depot, a Georgia company committed to diversity, is giving bonuses, while co-founder Bernie Marcus tells liberals to get a brain.
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi now think $1000 is nothing, when they'd rather companies not give Americans the $1000 at all, because that money--in their cynical world--belongs to the government. Pelosi is ridiculously rich. Schumer is, by the standards of an hourly Home Depot worker, rich. Rich Democrats are rooting against America because that's all they have left.
They wanted Trump to fail; they wanted to take him down. And now, the economy is humming along. Companies are taking cash they've hoarded for years (the Obama years, when the government shook down companies like petty criminal bosses shake down shops on "their street") and investing it because they're reasonable certain the government won't seize their profits.
President Trump's first State of the Union address will speak of an America somewhat greater than when he took office. An America that finally flipped the bird to the multinational globalists who used Global Warming to bully us while they private-jetted to Davos (where they now sidle up to Trump). An America that told the UN to pound sand because the U.S. was going to support Israel, our friend and ally. An America that defeated ISIS.
An America that can flex its energy muscles and become the largest oil producer in the world. An America where we can be jerks to one another. Democrats are rooting for political violence, Antifa, James Hodgkinson, and gun-toting teenagers who shoot up schools, so they can use the crises to grandstand for gun control that they could have passed in 2011 but didn't (because they know guns aren't the problem).
Liberals are rooting for America to fail so they can blame Trump. They have no other crimes to hang on him, other than Trump being Trump, so they have to invent crimes, and lacking that, they have to root for disaster.
