Political discourse in today’s world is more than an examination of facts and opinions. There’re some deep emotional feelings intertwined in the process. Those on the left who have passionate negative feelings toward the President can only see evil and bad in him. When I read the facts in the news and I see how clearly the issue is in the President’s favor, I’m shocked how those on the Left see 180 degrees away from what I see.
If President Trump turned water into wine, the story wouldn’t be about a miracle it would be about how President Trump stole jobs from California vineyards and wineries. That’s how he’s treated in the media and that’s how he’s viewed by those on the left. Their emotion prevents them from seeing the facts.
They suspend facts and reason; they are searching for justification of their opinion. A great example of this is President Trump’s recent comment about MS-13 Gang members being animals, he was clearly only calling the gang members and the killers, animals, but the media and the left jumped at the chance to condemn him for that comment. The facts were irrelevant, he called immigrants animals and he must be condemned for it. The media doesn’t even want to appear to be fair, they will use anything to further their agenda, they want the President out of office or at least to fail while in office.
Most of the opposition see President Trump as a menace and a threat to the country; most of his supporters see him as an amazing President who is achieving far more in less than two years than most presidents achieve who served eight years.
The same set of facts are being interpreted in two or more ways, how is this possible? He’s an incredible President accomplishing a lot of what he promised when he campaigned for office, or he’s a menace to society. History will clearly sort this out over time. During the fifties and early sixties President Eisenhower was not thought of as such a strong President, but as time passed he become seen as a very good President with some great accomplishments.
Ike was responsible for all of our early space accomplishments, and our success in the early stages of the Cold War, he created the Interstate Highway system, not for vacationing tourists, or to improve commercial traffic, but to help the country in time of war to move men and materials across country quicker and cheaper. Lessons learned from WWII, caused him to push for and support the interstate highways. The Suez Crisis, the U2 shoot down and the end of the Korean War are some of his foreign policy accomplishments; these are some of his accomplishments that are more highly thought of now than when he left office.
Before the end of his Presidency, President Trump will be known for his accomplishments because the media’s credibility is so poor. As the story is clearly white and the media is screaming black the audience can tell the difference. Those on the left, with their emotional commitment to their own point of view, will clearly only see the black because that’s what they need to see. They will look at it through an emotional filter not a clear set of objective eyes.
It won’t take long for history to recognize these first couple of years of the Trump Presidency had some incredible accomplishments, but that’s only part of the story. These accomplishments came while there was an active, determined resistance to his Presidency in the media and in his own administration. In spite of the resistance he accomplished a lot. The resistance is made up of partisan players who were determined to make sure Hillary was elected, they knew it was going to happen because Trump was so evil no one would vote for him. They all recognized that Trump couldn’t win but they were worried that Hillary could lose. The resistance did what they could to prop up Hillary and hold back Trump. The election did not take place on a level playing field.
The field was tilted in Hillary’s favor, but Trump still won, so they had to run interference against Trump to make sure his was either an illegitimate presidency or a failed one. It’s possible that it was a carefully planned and focused operation or different players from different areas just piled on doing whatever possible to throw road blocks in the President’s path.
There was even mention of an insurance plan, in case the unthinkable happened. It appears that the resistance is or is part of the insurance plan.
The media has abandoned its position as the public watchdog. They have no interest in being fair and impartial, they only want to embolden or assist the resistance. The facts are in front of them, they are clear and the contrast is black and white, there’s very little grey. Their emotion is in the way; they can’t see the facts in front of them. They refuse to see right and wrong, they only see what they feel supports their love, their emotion for the point of view that they have, that president Trump is a hate filled racist, who is incapable of being President.
They’ll have to face the fact that the House and Senate both investigated and the results from both investigations will not match what the narrative they have been trying to present to the country. The Inspector General’s report will be even more devastating. Members of the resistance will take a few hits in the public’s eye as well as in the court system, possibly even serve jail time. The media will have a difficult time explaining this, but they will have to and when they try to spin it as a negative for President Trump they’ll lose the last scraps of credibility that they have.
As the President is more and more successful and the threads of the Mueller investigation continue to unravel the public will see the truth. While the FBI stonewalling of the House Subpoenas finally gets to the end of the rope and they have to produce the evidence, and the impending IG Report is released, the resistance will get weaker and weaker. The media will be forced, reluctantly and slanted, but reported to the world as it happens. The media will be the unindicted coconspirators of the resistance, explaining their role as their former unnamed Senior Justice Department or FBI source for the resistance version of the narrative over the past year and a half will be difficult.
Members of the resistance are not honorable or noble people; they will fight over gets to rat out other members of the resistance first. They will admit how they used the media as the puppets and trolls they are to assist them do their best to damage our President. It won’t be pretty, and I can’t wait to see it happen.
