The Left Means to
Break This President

American Thinker, by James G. Wiles

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/10/2017 8:50:01 AM

Hillary Clinton´s 2016 campaign against Donald Trump largely amounted to a reprise of the left´s attacks on Judges Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas in the 1980s. "Borking" -- nice slang for Hillary’s "politics of personal destruction" (which she decried when it was employed against her husband in 1998) -- succeeded against Judge Bork. It did not work against Justice Clarence Thomas. And it demonstrably didn´t work against president-elect Trump. So what is the left going to try next, now that Borking Mr. Trump has failed? "Massive resistance." that´s what. I laughed when Slate´s Michelle Goldberg used the term on NPR last week. Because

It is going to backfire.

I believe it will backfire also. We have different media sources now and the left had a supposed real focus issue back then. The War.

The only issue they have now is that people rejected them at the poles and they are going to take power back from the voters no matter what it takes. That´s not an issue, it´s an act of tyranny.

As the article notes, we went through the same thing in Wisconsin, it was a mess but the people did not want what the left had to offer.

It will backfire #1. They didn´t learn yet. They were defeated. Now they have to be destroyed.

#1. The past reveals a constant drumbeat usually wins the day. Especially amongst the vulnerable K-12 graduates. AKA modern day hippies with one sworn enemy: capitalism.

The "left" is busy resurrecting Weimar Germany and dear leader Adolf, aka Bow-Boy.

They can be destroyed if they are dealt with swiftly and harshly. The leftards have lots of weak points and they won´t be able to believe it happened if they get hit in them repeatedly. I want to see them driven before us at bayonet point, wailing all the way to the gallows, the seditious traitors.

This President is not Johnson or Nixon and the leftists today are whiny, crybabies, not the hard core commie ´wannabe´s´ of the 60´s.

They are Facebook entities, who live in a candy-cane lattè conversation group; not young kids about to be marched off to be slaughtered in filthy South-East Asia rice paddies.

No, these " Safe-Room protesters" are empowered by their cell phone, and I-pads and social groups. They have lived inside their electronic bubble so long they have forgotten what ice and rain and blood and crapping in a storm drain feels like. They will not like it one bit. As products of modern day university "comfort zones", they are obviously unprepared to do the really tough things real protesters do.

My "crystal octagon" tells me we will not hear overly much from them except lots of tweets and FB postings. They will be like the little kids whining and running down the driveway behind their sweet "Granny Soros´" Buick as she heads back to her Florida retirement condo to forget all about them until next time.

Poor, lost, heart broken, wailing little Millennials.

I predict 2018 will be another shellacking for the Dems. This is a party that´s stamping their foot and acting like cry babies is about to self destruct.
I predict a lot of turmoil within and perhaps a name change.
The Tea Party and other Republican groups along with millions of Americans will put up a shield wall and defeat these lilliputians with ease. Soros and his money will not leave a scratch on this admin.
Good bye and good riddance.

I fear that this time it will be much more violent than in the 1960s and 70s. The Left Liberals have had decades to pin their pathetic hopes on the Marxist Communist Utopia they believed they were building with the Demonrat Party. George Soros has millions to provide the radicals with a money source for unending anarchy.

The Left is seething with hatred. I don´t think that laughter will be enough to stop their destructive agenda.

I can only hope that the desire among Americans to Make America Great Again is stronger than the message of hate flowing from the Left Liberal Demonrat Party and it´s followers.

To paraphrase Rush Limbaugh, they hope he fails...and they will help Trump to that end at every turn. They see themselves as righteous successors to those who tore at Obama with everything from his birth certificate, his sexual orientation, his Kenyan roots, his race, his Chicago activism to his progressive "for the people" politics. Impeachment talk will fill the air on January 20th, after Electoral College denial failed. The left sees it as nothing more than what Obama withstood for eight years...only they think they do it better, louder, and having more authority with celebrity voices, TV comics and "legitimate" media providing the incessant drumbeat.

It might have worked with Jeb or Kasich. It´s not going to work on Trump. He never pulls his punches - which is exactly why I voted for him.

But a majority don´t listen to or even believe their only tool that is the lying media. Without the non-stop lies and smears of the media the left is exposed as they are, a bunch of racists that hate this country.

Democrats/Communists view politics as non-stop anger, hatred and violence. They never give up.

Bring it on. There is no longer only one story coming out in the unified Enemedia - that model is forever gone. The people largely do not trust the Fake News from the usual suspects. We have sources of facts now, will not be buffaloed.

This sort of stuff will only harden the resolve to take our country back. At some point the events of 1860s will start to play out, if they keep pushing hard enough.

Too many folks have just had it, willing to do whatever it takes, within the law, to stop this nonsense. Not the time to be sitting idly by.

"Always remember others may hate you but those who hate you don´t win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself."

Excellent advice to remember.

The left WILL do everything they can to be annoying and at times will effectively block progress. We MUST struggle on and essentially ignore the left´s demands. We do need to watch what they are doing and have effective responses; not always that hard since like "Making America Sicker", dems are pretty stupid. What did Occupy Wall Street actually accomplish beyond its annoyance factor?

But we need to be careful about stepping out of bounds. Nixon´s people, with enormous power, got paranoid and stupid. Then they tried to cover up and protect the fools. They shouldn´t have broken into the Watergate. Once caught they should have admitted guilt, plea bargained out, and dropped those involved. It would have disappeared overnight.

Hate and anger will NOT serve us well. We need to focus on our goals and work to get to them. Dems will try to evoke a bad response. We need to make sure our responses are good and ignore the rest of their baloney. We need to keep our lines of communication open and active.

The Dems are continually moving towards globalism and have long abandoned Americanism [except as a front, which they run too whenever it suits them] and their movement will continue, so the sooner the showdown the better, in terms of the carnage which will ensue.

That is why I always thought Trump was the only choice. He is the only one who broke cover and stood in plain sight and spoke plain truths and took his lumps and will continue to do so. He bet the election on American exceptionalism and the middle class came through for him.

I´m going to go out on a (nerdy) limb here, and compare this situation with the Star Trek fictional planet of Vulcan. The Vulcans nearly broke themselves with out-of-control emotions.

The focused and dispassionate person will see the weak spots and the openings in a fight, while refusing to be emotionally manipulated themselves. And they will logically do what it takes to win.

Okay - Let´s just get it started: Lefties on that side, Us on the other. Now draw your weapons and let´s have a proper civil war. The winners will do what they want and the losers can be thankful they´re alive. But this fighting via legislation, innuendo, and subverting the public´s will has to stop. Oh wait - the left doesn´t have any guns? Well, this shouldn´t take long.

The newspapers are dying, the Networks are surviving on sports programming.
Fox is ruling Cable News, and Breitbart´s numbers are growing every day.

The adults are back in charge, and if the children have any expectations of earning enough income to pay off their student loans, they best shut up and make nice.

If only it were just an earthquake. We could then just repair some damaged roadways or condemn a couple dozen buildings, then resume our lives. (snip), if the state-run Unemployment Insurance trust gets overdrawn, as it did in California for going on its third year now, it automatically pulls an emergency loan out from the federal government to service the underfunded account. And if that is not repaid by November 10, and it defaults, then the government forces employers to pay it. They just defaulted.

Hollywood was caught in the act of being itself last night: arrogant, ignorant, mentally ill, and disdainful of the American public that elected Donald Trump our next President of the United States. The occasion for this hatefest was a supposedly gala event, the Golden Globe Awards, in which the relatively few members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (many of them stringers for impecunious overseas media outlets) vote on awards that are considered precursors of the Academy Awards. The HFPA makes a lot of money off the broadcast, and rumors that individual members sell their votes are so common that

This may be the single most despicable act of media bias I have ever encountered.

The Democrat-Media Complex has gone all in on the propaganda campaign to convince Americans that Donald Trump’s election is illegitimate because “Russia hacked the election.” (snip)But they may have made a fatal overstep with the release of the top-secret report on Russian influence to NBC News. It is crime to share top-secret information with people who do not have the requisite security clearance. So, as a first step, Donald Trump has tweeted: "I am asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it."

Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep calling her a ´Hillary lover´ after her Golden Globes acceptance speech took aim at the president-elect. Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, slammed Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars. She said the moment he mocked and humiliated a disabled reporter ´broke her heart´ as Streep labelled it the year´s most stunning performance.

Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump´s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person.

Turning attention away from her and toward Donald J. Trump, Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to call out the president-elect for appearing to mock a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015, and warned that a free press would need to be defended. Ms. Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Some conservative commentators immediately criticized her decision to bring politics so vividly into the show. But the room roundly applauded her remarks, which included a plea to support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

She is among the most famous and easily recognized women in the world, but first lady Michelle Obama feels "invisible" when she steps off her official stage, according to her best friend and ally in the White House. And the reason is a remarkable one considering that she and her husband, President Obama, are America´s first African-American presidential couple. According to top adviser Valerie Jarrett, Obama is invisible because she is black. In her new book about the importance of black mothers in America and how they walk a tightrope in society, White House correspondent April Ryan revealed that Jarrett

Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee. Khizr Khan, the Pakistan-born father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war, said his son’s service was a rejection of people like Mr. Sessions, who he accused of associating with racially divisive and ‘intensely anti-Muslim” groups. Mr. Khan also said Mr. Sessions has defended proposals “that would single Muslim immigrants out for discriminatory treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.” “My

Melinda Byerley, MBA and founder of Timeshare CMO, a Silicon Valley-based tech start-up, tweeted out Saturday afternoon describing what middle America could do to “get more jobs in their area.” Byerley says that the first thing those in middle America need to realize is that “no educated person wants to live in a sh**hole with stupid people.” Particularly, in a “sh**hole” filled with people who are “violent, racist, and/or misogynistic.” In Byerley’s opinion, “big corporations,” do
