Much has changed since the fateful Inauguration of the 45th president. The stock market is up about 35%, unemployment dropped to 3.9%, the Iran nuclear ‘deal’ is gone, and the public appears to have a majority positive view about the future.
Now the Democrats must content themselves with delaying Trump’s nominees and ginning up voter suspicion of the new administration with as yet unproven allegations of Russian Collusion – oh, and they dragged an aging porn star into the limelight on the outside chance that decade-old infidelity could be leveraged into an impeachment.
Meanwhile, in the past 6 months or so the Democrat’s have seen their 15+ point lead in the generic ballot dwindle down to a measly +3.
The much vaunted Blue Wave appears to be a giant sucking sound of their dreams of regaining Congress flushing down the toilet. In my first post on RedState, I suggested that disappointment might greet Democrats in November rather than the sweet joy of Resistance revenge. In my second post, I cited recent polling to support that theory.
And Streiff noted the Democrats fever dreams of regaining power truly do appear to be turning into a possible nightmare. If you think the Resistance has been unhinged since Inauguration Day, just wait and see what happens if they lose the Midterms and Trump has a GOP majority for the rest of his first term.
The poor dears have survived by howling at the sky and counting the days until Mueller personally impeaches Trump (don’t tell them that’s not how this works, at all. They’re still grappling with the existence of the Electoral College).
With a Special Counsel investigation, over 90 percent negative news coverage, and the specter of Stormy Daniels hanging over Trump’s presidency, how could this Republican president’s poll numbers be improving?
Here are three reasons off the top of my head…
First, the left’s pathological disdain for American values. As the late great and prescient Andrew Breitbart said, politics is downstream from culture. It’s no secret that Trump is a polarizing figure and he has rabid detractors even on the right.
But in his first year and a half, the American people have been warned he’s a fascist, a Hitler in progress, not to mention racist, mentally unstable, and of course, a stupid liar, too.
At some point, the hysteria began to backfire as it was overtaken with positive news. And yet his America First agenda has seen a resurgence of US foreign policy moral clarity, strong and persistent economic growth that has notably benefited blacks, Hispanics, and women.
The GOP fell short of repealing the fraudulent ACA, but against a headwind of Apocalyptic warnings, they passed Trump’s tax cuts and reform. This was followed quickly with thousands of Americans getting bonuses that tone-deaf Pelosi has deemed ‘crumbs’ she’s sworn to rescind.
Between the Chicken Little warnings not coming true and the Democrats and their media lackeys chronic glass-is-half-empty response to every positive development, Trump’s polls have gone up as theirs have fallen.
It’s a mystery that even Joe Biden should be able to solve, America is a center-right nation at heart and while we may have been hoodwinked by Hope and Change in 2008, we have no love for a party who won’t cheer for good news.
The Democrats are so petty, so partisan, so transparently toxic, that they can’t celebrate record low unemployment for blacks and Hispanics at the State of the Union.
They can’t celebrate the potential for breakthrough negotiations with North Korea. And they can’t admit that Obama’s executive agreement with Iran was a bad deal, even when Israel produces 55,000 documents proving the Iranians lied. I could go on and on and on, and that’s the point.
There isn’t a single thing the Democrats and the left supports that’s objectively good for America. To the contrary, they are clearly on the wrong side of history, the rule of law, and even human rights.
What’s remarkable is how instead of shame they boast of pride in their #Resistance. That’s fine when they direct their ire at Trump, but they’ve chosen to denigrate and even attack voters who don’t support their America Last agenda. No thanks, Obama.
Second, America celebrates merit and achievement and believes everyone should have equal opportunity. While the left clings to hoary feminist myths of gender pay gaps and glass ceilings, Trump’s cabinet includes powerhouse women like Niki Haley.
Instead of celebrating cabinet-level appointments like Haley, Democrats dismiss or denigrate the First Lady and First Daughter at every opportunity. According to the Hill:
His list of female appointees is long: Nikki Haley, Ambassador to the United Nations (not only a woman but also child of Indian American Sikh immigrants); Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation; Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security; Dr. Heather Wilson, Secretary of the Air Force; Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary; Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to the President; Linda McMahon, Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration; Betsy DeVos, Secretary of Education; Jovita Carranza, U.S. Treasurer (also a minority and first-generation Mexican American immigrant); Neomi Rao, Regulation Czar (also a minority and daughter of parents from India);
The list actually goes on from there, but you won’t hear about that from the mainstream media. The left cherishes the narrative that they and they alone are the champions of Civil Rights and that Trump and Republicans are reprobate racists who want them back in chains. I submit that Obama’s incessant identity politics and the maxing out of the race card in the past decade has set back race relations decades, at least.
And yet, Trump’s HUD Secretary, Ben Carson is smeared as an Uncle Tom by the left. The aforementioned successes in black and Hispanic employment gains are dismissed (or attributed to Obama, somehow).
And when a pop icon like Kanye West speaks out for Trump, the left castigates them without mercy or boundary. What this is starting to show America is that the left does not, in fact, care about women or minorities, they only care about leftism.
Hate to break it to the Democrats reading this site, but America isn’t that into partisan politics. And when you denigrate women like Roseanne or anyone else who dares stray from the narrative, you prove that you’re hypocrites not Civil Rights heroes.
That’s been obvious for a long time to those of us who follow these issues closely, but the Trump election seems to have ripped the mask right off and all the virtue signaling you can muster won’t cover the ugly inconvenient truth up again.
Third, the personal is now political and the political is personal. The left got their wish. Decades of thinking globally and acting locally has had intended results that most Americans didn’t know were part of the plan all along.
The Paris Accord was a disgraceful boondoggle and sell out of the American taxpayer to global elites who profit from the Climate Change hoax industry and a massive transfer of wealth to developing countries that Obama willed upon the American economy. If you think Climate Change is the biggest threat to the world, perhaps you might think that was a necessary sacrifice. But should you call those who disagree climate deniers who should be prosecuted?
But must every Hollywood celebrity be given a platform to berate Trump and over 60 million voters who supported him over their darling, Hillary? Must every T.V. show, movie, song, and SNL skit rub the wounds of the 2016 election with salt? Must Dick’s Sporting Goods and Bank of America do their part to interfere with American’s 2nd Amendment rights?
Must residents of places like Berkeley, California endure repeated ‘days of action’ with masked Antifa thugs smashing windows, harassing motorists, and burning and beating with abandon? If you listen to the media or Democrat leaders, these masked fascists are heroes of the Resistance.
But to the American people, this lawlessness is evidence that the Democrats are not our friend. Their insane clown crusade to impeach Trump via Robert Mueller and friends, the emerging evidence of the corruption of the FBI and DOJ and perversion of the media into a propaganda outlet for DNC talking points, all point to a deep sickness on America’s left.
It doesn’t help that SJW fascists have turned college campuses into indoctrination camps complete with kangaroo courts that leave young men to be guilty by accusation. These are the same SJW lunatics who attack anything that triggers their fascist fetish. Nothing is safe. Not movies, music, video games, or private citizens.
Sorry guys, but the Twitter mob has overstayed it’s welcome, and you can look back to the disgusting reaction to First Lady Barbara Bush’s passing as one of the countless incidents that exposed the left as enemies of decency.
I don’t see any danger in Democrats heeding my advice, so I’ll offer this idea freely: Earn the respect of the American voter with a positive pro-American agenda.
Celebrate American victories and mourn our losses. Stop celebrating insanities such as the idea that gender is fluid and illegals having more rights to be within our borders than citizens. And for the love of God, start identifying as Americans.
Until you do that, you deserve to continue losing the culture war and every election from now on. We’ve seen California and we don’t like what you’ve done to the state that brought America and the world President Ronald Reagan.
