As reporter Roger L Simon pointed out yesterday:
Adam Schiff, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, among seemingly dozens of Democrats, not to mention half the mainstream media, had been warning us for days that the release of the memo authored by Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee would place our national security at grave risk. “Sources and methods” would be revealed.
Now that we have seen the memo, it’s clear that was an absolutely bald-faced lie of the most obvious sort. Nothing in it impacts national security in the slightest. There’s no mention whatsoever of any “sources and methods.”
They lied. *notice – no shock here*
Of course they are now going to push out a memo of their own, and why not. They know they will have the FULL POWER of MSM to push it and spin it and highlight it and use it to continue their policies and practices against President Trump.
And they also know that more memos/information will be forth-coming about the whole collusion with Russia lie and the politicization of the DOJ & FBI as a weapon to use against those who are not aligned to TPTB.
So, they were LIARS. But that is not enough.
As I referenced in another post elsewhere they have proven at least one of two self-evident truths are accurate about them. At the SOTU, the democrats collective behavior shows that either they are sore “losers” (aka: unprofessional, juvenile, immature, bad role models) or all those points highlighted in the video (select the link) are matters that they completely disagree with.
Here are they are:
American people are strong
Black unemployment at a record low
individual mandate repealed
In God we trust
Jobs coming back to America
Approving more life saving drugs
More infrastructure spending
Compromising on immigration
Ending catch and release
Ending the visa lottery
Using merit based immigration
Not telling our enemies our plans
Giving aid to allies not enemies
Note if you watch the video that Pelosi and others turn around to make sure every democrat is sitting.
They didn’t just sit, actually. They grimaced. They groaned. They booed and hissed. And it wasn’t just that they disapproved of Trump on policy. It’s that they refused to stand for things they supposedly believe in because they hate Trump so much. Paid family leave? They sat. Infrastructure spending? They sat. Amnesty for 1.8 million illegal immigrants? They sat.
And then they sat some more. They sat when Trump touted the American flag. They sat when Trump touted American freedom. They sat when Trump touted low black unemployment rates. They sat when Trump cheered American opportunity.
They sat because the Democratic Party has become a party focused on one figure and one figure only: Donald Trump. That’s a high-risk, high-reward strategy. It’s high-risk because it assumes that the American people despise Trump as much as they do — and last night, the polls didn’t show it. Americans liked Trump’s speech. They thought Trump was channeling something unifying. They saw Trump as a man trying to get things done, and cheerleading for other Americans. Democrats sat through all of that because they believe that Americans hate Trump the way they do — that Americans hate Trump more than they love what makes America excellent.
But I disagree with Shapiro’s last sentence. They didn’t sit because they believe Americans hate Trump, they sat because nothing matters to them except two things:
- re-election by their constituents
- the continued remaking of the USA into a completely socialist globalist society where the country’s leadership are the “haves” and everyone else is a “have-not”
