For the past nearly 2 years, the MSM has been attacking Trump with absolutely everything they possibly can. And one Politico article is realizing that… IT’S NOT WORKING FOR THE DEMOCRATS.
According to the Politico article: “Democrats tried attacking Donald Trump as unfit for the presidency. They’ve made the case that he’s ineffective, pointing to his failure to sign a single major piece of legislation into law after eight months on the job. They’ve argued that Trump is using the presidency to enrich himself and that his campaign was in cahoots with Russia. None of it is working.”
Well, at least SOMEONE on the Left-wing media has the intelligence to realize this fact. And why do you think it’s not working? Because people know none of what the MSM says or what the Democrats say about him is the truth.
They say he’s unfit to be President, when he’s quite possibly the sanest man in Washington D.C. at the moment. They say that he’s ineffective because he can’t get anything of significance signed. Well, we know that it’s not HIS fault. It’s the traitorous Republican Party that has failed to get anything done. They’ve been promising to repeal Obamacare for 7 years, often making excuses that they don’t have the required seats or the majority or that the President won’t sign it. And now that they DO have the majority AND a president who will be happy to sign it, they don’t want to do it.
So, of course, THAT particular tactic won’t work because everyone knows where the fault lies: in the Republicans.
The Left says that he uses the presidency to enrich himself, even though he DOESN’T EVEN NEED TO DO THAT! He’s already one of the wealthiest people in the world! Not to mention that he would’ve made FAR more money in one year by not being President than he will in 8! Furthermore, HE USED HIS OWN MONEY TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT! HE ACTUALLY LOST MONEY IN ORDER TO BECOME PRESIDENT!
So that tactic obviously doesn’t work for anyone that uses a little bit of logic.
And about Russia, of course that’s not working either. Eight months with ZERO evidence, in an investigation being run by the FBI, as well as former FBI Director Robert Mueller and all of the Mainstream Media? Either the FBI, Mueller and the MSM are all incredibly inept to find any concrete evidence, or the Russia story is just that - a story.
The Politico article then goes on to talk about the big points Democrats tend to work on to get votes: free college tuition, raising the minimum wage to $15 and universal health care. And, surprise, surprise: they don’t test well with people outside of their base.
According to the article: “The people in these polls and focus groups tend to see those proposals as empty promises, at best.”
The article then goes on to talk about how voters view Trump’s success with the economy, saying: “In focus groups, most participants say they’re still impressed with Trump’s business background and tend to give him credit for improving the economy. The window is closing, but they’re still inclined to give him a chance to succeed.”
Now that is an interesting and puzzling statement. “The window is closing, but they’re still inclined to give him a chance to succeed”? What do you mean the window is closing? He’s been president for 8 months, not 7 years. The window is wide open for the economy to improve. And, as it is, it’s improving at a far faster rate than Obama’s economy was (which is not surprising).
The Dow Jones Industrial Average has hit multiple all-time highs since his very ELECTION as president. He’s managed to create over 1 million jobs in his first 6 or so months as president. He’s convinced multiple businesses to continue operating in the U.S. and not leave for Mexico. And the overall economic atmosphere looks far more promising than when Obama was president.
But of course, all of those things go largely ignored by the Left. But they are not being ignored by We the People.
The article then goes on to talk about Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville riots. “The president’s equivocation on neo-Nazis was not as much of a political problem as his opponents want to believe, Democratic operatives say, and shifting the debate to whether or not to remove Confederate monuments largely worked for him.”
Well, would you look at that? People actually liked seeing the President blame EVERYONE involved in the violence in Charlottesville. As it turns out, people don’t want the terrorists at Antifa to get away with what they’re doing and want to place the blame on them as well. Not to mention the fact that most people are intelligent enough to realize that the president had nothing to do with the violence in Charlottesville and that the hatred and racism present there all came from the Left.
Next, the article returns to the polling points on free college tuition, saying: “The call for free college tuition fosters both resentment at ivory tower elitism and regret from people who have degrees but are now buried under debt. Many voters see ‘free’ as a lie – either they’ll end up paying for tuition some other way, or worse, they’ll be paying the tuition of someone else who’ll be getting a degree for free.”
Which is similar to how people feel about universal health care. “The challenge is that most voters in focus groups believe it’s a pipe dream – they ask who will pay for it and suspect it will lead to a government takeover of health care – and therefore wonder whether the politicians talking to them are being less than forthright, too.”
Oh, you mean people are worried about single-payer health care? What a shock. Even if they don’t know that what they’re afraid of is, indeed, single-payer, they ARE afraid of it… as they should be. Single-payer health care is one of the reasons Nazi Germany was so dangerous. The government there decided who would get taken care of and under what plan AKA who would be too expensive to take care of and whether euthanasia would be the best choice (a choice that only the government would make).
And it’s very much the same with college tuition. People KNOW that nothing is truly free. If something’s “free”, they will end up paying for it in some other way. And then, it’s not actually free.
People don’t want to have to pay for other people’s college tuition. They don’t want to pay for other people’s health care and they don’t want the government to be the only source of health care. You’ve seen the lines at the DMV. Trust me, you don’t want that to be the case at the hospital.
But it’s truly interesting to see someone at Politico writing a story like this. At least this particular writer was smart enough to realize that their tactics aren’t working on Trump. Of course, that won’t deter them from trying. If they can continue with this Russia investigation, even if it produces zero evidence, they will continue with it. If they can continue to call Trump unfit to be president, even if it produces zero results, they will continue.
They think that if you tell a lie enough times, it will become the truth. Well, no matter how many times you tell me the sky is purple, the sky won’t eventually turn purple. No matter how many times you tell me there are 36 genders, there won’t ever be more than 2. No matter how many times you tell me the world is getting hotter/colder, it won’t get hotter/colder. And no matter how many times you tell me this president is unfit for office, that won’t make him unfit for office.
The accumulation of all of those lies won’t result in one massive truth. Or rather, won’t result in them becoming the truth. The truth is that you’re wrong at every turn if you tell me any of those things is the truth.
“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
