“Sign up today to learn how you can get involved with Resistance Summer … We’re embarking on a mission to organize in every zip code, from Maine to Hawaii … This is how we win back control of state legislatures, governor’s [sic] mansions, Congress, and the White House…” — dnc email, on summer training camps for Trump-resisting nationwide, 5/17/17
And “pathetic” is the only verdict that fits. As I’ve reported to you many times, the Democrats are in near collapse, as far as electoral power goes. Republicans control the House, the Senate, and the White House — not to mention 33 governorships, and 69 out of 99 state legislative chambers. Democrats have lost a thousand elective seats nationally over the last eight years; the Party itself hasn’t been this weak since 1926.
But you’d never know it. The entire national media is in full blood-in-the-water fury, on the attack against the Republican President. There is no Democrat Party agenda other than destroying Donald Trump, and voilà, that also happens to be the media’s mission, which they’re pursuing at warp speed. NewsBusters reviewed one day (May 12) of cnn programming, and found “a whopping 92 percent … was devoted to the Trump Presidency, with a mere … three minutes per hour devoted to all of the other news of the day.” It’s a full-on agitprop operation.
The Democrat base will accept nothing less than the immediate impeachment of Donald Trump. Or his removal “by any means necessary” — in their terminology. Which has brought the country to an extremely dangerous juncture, where the losers won’t accept the results of an election they lost.
So, with the media howling like wolves, where are the Republicans? Where are any signs of the Party that won such a massive victory in November? The day after the election, the Republican leadership was all smiles and back-slapping, as reported by The Chicago Tribune. “‘He just earned a mandate,’
Where is that grand action and support now? These Republicans are making no effort to defend their President. They are hunkered down, bitter and resentful that “changing the course for America” turned out to be messy. “I think we could do with a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things,”
The country is at an extremely dangerous juncture, where the losers won’t accept the results of an election they lost.
Which brings me to the Reuters headline May 17: “Republicans Worry Trump Scandals May Doom Legislative Agenda.” First of all, there are no “Trump scandals.” There are only media leaks from anonymous “officials” based on uncorroborated rumors. Second of all, if anything is dooming the Republican “legislative agenda,” it’s Republican legislators, not Trump. President Trump is the only reason you have any agenda whatsoever.
Don’t misunderstand me — I’m not surprised by any of this. But it is a great frustration. Republicans have historic, hard-fought, and hard-won working majorities. They have the power to transform this country, and save it. And they’re not using it! And they’re not protecting their standard-bearer, Donald Trump.
I know, the Republicans are sitting on their hands because they’re part of the establishment that Trump took on. They don’t like him much more than the Democrats do. Or the Never Trumpers. These are the wizards of smart who consider themselves the leaders of the conservative movement. But they never lead, they never move, and they never actually fight for conservatism. These are people whose manhood is so tiny, they don’t need jockstraps when they jog.
. As the President told the Coast Guard Academy grads on May 17: “The people understand what I’m doing, and that’s the most important thing. I didn’t get elected to serve the Washington media or special interests. I got elected to serve the forgotten men and women of our country, and that’s what I’m doing. I will never stop fighting for you.”
This, of course, makes his opponents even more furious. How dare he! He’s supposed to cave. He’s supposed to be quivering and cowering in the corner. But he hammers it home: “Adversity makes you stronger. Don’t give in. Don’t back down. And never stop doing what you know is right. Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy. And the more righteous your fight, the more opposition you will face.”
