The Left´s Once Mighty Echo
Chamber Is Losing Power

American Thinker, by David Prentice

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/17/2017 5:54:42 AM

The left and its echo chamber are convinced they are taking out Trump. It´s their "narrative" and they actually believe their own PR. They don’t see how they have driven themselves over the edge of reason and can no longer convince others. The only people they have convinced are themselves -- of their own righteousness. And they actually believe they have succeeded. Again. This echo chamber once held great power. They used to be able to form "narratives," ( activist storylines to decide and interpret news), persuade the powerful, and terrorize the right. They could make most Republicans quake just

The left is most dangerous in their current mode.Trump is holding on against the never ending spew of hate headed his way.We have a very ruffled society right now and it´s going to get worse with Obama/Soros´s shadow government.

President Trump yesterday was like a "yuge" orange housecat who had cornered himself a media mouse. After batting it around for a bit he tossed it high in the air and bit its head off on the way down. They don´t know what hit them and likely never will.

Truth has a way of slapping you in the face especially if you are dumb enough to believe your own lies. I can´t remember in my lifetime a President telling the media in a very calm but determined manner and to their faces that they are dishonest. It was a beautiful thing to behold. It was not an angry rant either. He was funny and warm, sort of like a concerned parent when they are trying to teach their child the error of his ways. The media, of course, had the expected meltdown and they will be in sanctimonious whine mode all weekend. I kept thinking of Andrew Breitbart. Can you imagine his reaction. Just warms the heart, doesn´t it?

Serious news item about how Trump "touts false information about the election". If you go through it patiently it turns our he claimed to have earned 306 Electoral votes (which he did) but two electors defected and the actual number cast was 304! Really?? If that is all you have to say, Trump is treating you far better than you deserve.

Trump has dared to pull back the curtain from behind which the awesomely fear-inducing voice has been booming and finally revealed that the Wizard of Oz was really just an Oompa Loompa with a voice (and news) synthesizer. Not so scary anymore. Should be lesson for all the RINO scarecrows, tin men, and cowardly lions to remember.

Great article, but I would like to add one more thing to it - the left is destroying itself with its criminal and hysterical behavior. Moderate democrats are disgusted with the riots, the arson, the beatings and the destruction. Just as they were with Illary´s lies and cheating. More and more of them will make a right turn in the next couple of years.

I admit there were moments I loved... laughed out loud, cringed, and clapped! All the emotions of Trump. He is unique in that he does misspeak, but its usually about something that doesnt really matter except to the "ever looking for mistakes" media.

This whole Russia focus is to try to prove to anybody that "See! They had talks.. the campaign talked to Russians!! Russia tried to interfere in our election by posted emails from Podesta" oh wait... can´t remind people of that, now can we? I sure wish Trump would have made that point clearer... sometimes his mind goes faster than the mouth can finish it.

The media still cant accept that the people didnt want Hillary. And Trump was our choice. And the reason he is not polished in front of the public doesn´t matter. We want him to do what he said he would do. And take no prisoners in the media.

And he is. Trump - 1 Media -0

Trump was enjoying himself hugely/bigly/big-league yesterday. He is not a politician in any conventional sense, but he calls it as he sees it.

All the deferential Washington elites of both parties knew the media game of Democrat=Good, Republicans=Bad. They like being invited to each other´s cocktail parties. Well, The Donald has upended the table with all the food and drinks on it. Get used to it, kids!

The Trump voter is still engaged. Not only are they engaged, they are doubly thrilled that he isn’t backing down to these people. They aren’t so much seeing the bumps in the road or the obstacles the left is throwing out, they are just seeing an administration that is fighting for them, and it energizes their own determination to fight, too. Because the Trump administration is serious about its promises, it is earning the loyalty of those who have supported them. This is a movement of principle, and the principles stood for are being followed, they are being implemented.

This paragraph is so true! More please!

President Trump isn´t George Bush taking it on chin and accepting it. There´s no reaching across the aisle and ´sharing power´. The left has been trounced with a victory and their propaganda machine needs a lesson in ´losership´. Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions need to find the ´gators in the swamp and take them out.

My only regret is that Trump is confirming he pays attention to their rubbish.

Still, he´s holding all the cards. Running a news operation is a very expensive endeavor. The reporters care about their jobs first, ratings second and the truth is somewhere far down the line. By refusing to observe the media pecking order he´s driving them bonkers and costing them money.

I couldn´t believe he managed to get Hillary´s sale of uranium, John Podesta´s email leaks to Wikileaks and Hillary Clinton´s cheating at the Presidential debate all in one press conference.

I am sure that red alerts were sent out all over the world to "watch us take down Trump" and he destroyed both Clinton and Obama in one day.

Now, nobody can even have them on television without being forced to ask the follow up questions.

FTA: They used to be able to form "narratives," ( activist storylines to decide and interpret news), persuade the powerful, and terrorize the right.

Narratives, is the word we need to stop using or assisting the Echo chamber folks.

I hope people like Hannity, Rush, and all the rest of the talk shows, including every GOP politician STOPS using this term to assist the Democrats and their Echo chamber.

Trump, in particular, can simply state, "you say narrative, it´s your STORY, simple as that nothing more".

Narrative makes it sound important, and democrats try to imply they know more, and are better educated, thus, "listen to us" is their mantra.

This article is not about the media vs. Trump, but the "deep state intel community´ within the Washington community and it´s incapacity to take down Trump through its "echoes."

Watching Trump in action makes Bush seem so weak. We were always questioning why he didn´t fight back.

President Trump will have to root out "out-of-control leftists embedded deep in the heart of our intelligence agencies,and bureaucracies" relentlessly. The CIA, NSA, FBI, DoS, DoJ, are replete with anti-American moles. But our President has half of the people on his side. Yesterday I found out one can still contribute directly to the Trump-Pence campaign website. I cannot wait for Saturday´s rally in Florida.

Another point, at the fabulous press conference our President started listing all the bad things he inherited from Barack Hussein Obanana. This will put our Cultural Marxist compatriots in the defensive. Obama bad will work because he really is not popular, just that Americans do not want to say they dislike a half-black. Focusing on Obama himself will help defuse the deep state shadow government of the far left.

Donald J. Trump of Queens, New Yawk, is not George W. Bush, of Greenwich, Connecticut.
He is a big, brash, bold, take no prisoners outta boro guy even though he now lives on Fifth Avenue.

You can take the boy out of Queens, pop him on Fifth Avenue or 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but you ain´t takin´ Queens outta that boy.

Not for nothin´ but it´s great having a 718 in the White House. (To those not from NYC, that is an outer borough area code that is always derided by the elitist Left.)

Love the list near the end of the article re the promised wonders to come as President Trump and his administration move forward.

In this excellent article, Mr. David Prentice is astute in observing that: “This is a movement of principle, and the principles stood for are being followed, they are being implemented.”

It is a continuing stalwart movement, indeed, of President Trump and of all of his enthusiastic supporters - and the Left will be left behind, tumbling together, howling, growling, and clawing at their own.

North America’s Building Trades Unions sent the White House the wish list of 26 projects, including more than $80 billion worth of energy transmission lines, water and wind projects, and pipelines across the country.

Remember when Obama and Hillary cozied up to Putin? And recall when the media rejoiced at surveillance leaks about Team Trump? The American Left used to lecture the nation about its supposedly paranoid suspicions of Russia. The World War II alliance with Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union had led many leftists to envision a continuing post-war friendship with Russia. During the subsequent Cold War, American liberals felt that the Right had unnecessarily become paranoid about Soviet Russia, logically culminating in the career of the demagogic Senator Joe McCarthy.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,

Mental genius Chelsea Clinton made a complete a** of herself once again this past weekend. Someone really needs to keep her away from the computers without supervision. Via Newsbusters— The Republican Party of Palm Beach County put President Lincoln in a #MAGA hat this year for its Lincoln Day Dinner. (Snip) An alarmed Chelsea Clinton, a graduate of Oxford University, asked her followers if the image was photoshopped! What a dunce. The responses to Chelsea’s tweets were EPIC! “No, this is the exact hat Lincoln was wearing when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. People forget that.” “Nope, Lincoln was wearing that exact hat at the Theater.” “Nope,

The Washington Post detailed the House GOP’s fight over the ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan this week, rounding up the dramatic details of leadership’s fight to win support for the measure. At one point, the paper said, House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) got down on one knee to plead with Rep. Don Young of Alaska – the longest-serving Republican in Congress -- to support the bill. (He was unsuccessful.) The moments highlighted by the Post during the Republican conference negotiations show what a tough battle Ryan and his deputies faced in whipping the vote.

As they investigate the forces behind the party’s stunning losses in November, Democrats are coming to a troubling conclusion. The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states.
