The Twofold Strategy of the Left

For over a year and a half the resistance, which include Democrats, the mainstream media (MSM) and the deep state, among others, have kept President Donald Trump and his supporters under attack. It all started the night he won the presidency, the night Democrats were highly embarrassed and MSM anchors sat behind their desks with dumbfound and stunned looks on their faces.

Upset that Hillary Clinton was defeated fairly and squarely in the 2016 election, Democrats have conspired to take out President Trump by pretending that he and his campaign team colluded with Russian agents to steal the election. Not content with accepting that Barack Hussein Obama was a terrible president who turned this country in a direction that was aimed for disaster, and that Hillary Clinton ran a horrible campaign, Trump’s enemies devised a plan to derail the presidency. It’s nothing new, it’s what the left does when they don’t get their way.

Recall that in the year 2000 when George W. Bush won the election fairly and squarely the left went mad and caused a scene demanding a recount in Florida. They came up with some pretty ridiculous excuses for why this election was invalid. Hanging chads became a household term to describe the piece of paper still attached to the ballot when a hole is punched through it. That somehow caused the count to be off. Another excuse was that elderly voters in certain Floridian districts became confused and selected Bush instead of who they really wanted: Al Gore. And who is to determine who they really wanted? If they had “accidentally” selected Gore, would Democrats be so upset?

What they conveniently missed, however, are the many ballots by servicemen and servicewomen who notoriously vote Republican. But those votes didn’t serve their purpose so they were ignored. Of course, Bush eventually was proven the winner and the left has claimed that the election was stolen ever since.

Because requesting a recount of the 2016 election would have been too obvious, the left came up with the devious notion that Trump and his team must have worked with Russian agents to steal this election. One way the Trump campaign team did this, they claim, was by manipulating some algorithms in Facebook to place ads, or something.

Without a shred of evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, not that collusion is a crime, an investigation promptly commenced. Fake Republican and former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed as the Special Prosecutor and heralded as a “straight shooter.” Time would eventually tell that he, indeed, was no straight shooter, as his team consisted primarily of Clinton and Democratic donors.

Month after month the Mueller investigation team failed to produce anything to remotely prove what they were assembled for. They did, however, manage to dig into former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s past and find possible tax evasion fraud from 2005, which he recently has been convicted of. But no evidence of Trump/Russia collusion, and still the investigation (witch hunt) goes on.

There have been tons and tons of evidence and reporting that should have blown this whole phony investigation out into the open but the corrupt MSM refuse to report on it. Instead they stick to their story that Trump colluded with Russia. The real story, that reporters Sara Carter of Circa Media and Jonathan Solomon of The Hill have been so influential in breaking, is that the Clinton campaign team hired Christopher Steele to concoct a dossier that cites falsehoods about Trump and Russian hookers. This phony dossier was used to attain a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign advisor. This all happened under the Obama administration.

With the help of a complicit and activist MSM, the left have successfully managed to drive a false narrative, push fake news and keep from reporting the truth. It all plays into their corrupt strategy, which is twofold. On the one hand, the left is attempting to find something on Trump so they can impeach him and withdraw him from office. On the other hand, they want to tie up his presidency with a sham of an investigation so that he can’t get anything done and won’t be able to fulfill his promises.

The left is threatened by Trump but it doesn’t stop him. As hard as they try, he keeps fulfilling promises he made on the campaign trail. From implementing tax reform to eliminating massive bureaucratic regulations to recognizing the capital of Israel and opening the embassy in Jerusalem to repealing the unconstitutional mandate of Obamacare to ending the disastrous Iran deal to starting to build the wall on our southern border, Trump is making real progress America hasn’t seen in decades.
