Since the election of Donald Trump, liberal Democrats have been setting the party up for failure.
While those of us who watched and listened closely over the years knew exactly who they were, the majority of Americans and dare I say even Democrats, didn’t have any idea.
In the 2008 Presidential election, then Presidential Candidate Barak Obama told his followers: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
Over the last few months, they’ve exposed their agenda both in the party and through the mainstream media, who are in essence card carrying members of the Democrat party.
Leftist Democrat activists have gone all out.
In an article yesterday, left wing Democrat activists acknowledged they want all moderate or conservative Democrats elected out of office who will work with the President on anything, even if that means Democrats lose the midterms and elect more Republicans.
The reality is that the leftist Democrats are alienating the country in pursuit of their radical agenda, even though they continue to lose all over the country at the ballot box.
Every word, event, or action the President and Republicans take is cause for mobilization and protest.
It makes sense… it’s all they have left since they no longer are in official power in Washington and they have lost two-thirds of the state houses and governorships.
What is their real agenda?
What are they really trying to accomplish?
I’m going to get to that, but here is something important to understand. As Democrats marginalize themselves and lash out over their rejection by the voters, it ultimately hurts the country. They are playing a key role in destabilizing most American’s views of our great institutions.
Let me break it down for you into seven easily identifiable points of what their agenda is moving forward…
#1 – Overthrow Moderate and Conservative Democrats in Congress
Most liberals believe Hillary lost because she isn’t liberal enough and if they had nominated socialist Bernie Sanders they would have won the White House.
In an article yesterday in McClatchy.com, Alex Roarty emphasized how liberal activists are threatening moderate Democrats in the upcoming primaries. The point they are making is either get in line or lose the primary.
They want nothing short of complete resistance to President Trump and the Republican agenda, even if that means they lose more seats in the House and Senate in 2018.
“It’s up to each and every elected Democrat: If they want to be part of the resistance, they’ll have an army by their side.
“And if they don’t, they’ll have to face the biggest grassroots movement that I’ve seen in my life.”
~ Ben Wikler, Washington director for MoveOn.org
#2 – Destroy Republicans Through Collusion with the Media
During the election, we learned a lot about media collusion and the Democrat party.
It’s not just bias, it’s full blown participation by the media. In essence, they are a part of the Democrat Party, and they didn’t even try to hide it. It’s no wonder the public’s trust has eroded.
The agenda was simple, gang up on any Republican, especially Trump, by creating as much negative press for the opposition and bury them in public perception so that voters don’t turn out for conservatives.
Here are few examples of media collusion that Wikileaks exposed with Hillary Clinton’s campaign last fall:
- Clinton Staff hosts private “off-the-record cocktail party” with 38 “influential” reporters, journalists, editors, and anchors (from 16 different mainstream media outlets including CNN, NBC, CBS, NYT, MSNBC, & more) with the stated goal of “framing the race.”
- Clinton campaign and the New York Times coordinating attack strategy against Trump.
- Glen Thrush, POLITICO’s chief political correspondent and senior staff writer for POLITICO Magazine, sends John Podesta an article for his approval. Writes: “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this. Tell me if I f***ed up anything.”
- Juliet Eilperin, Washington Post: The Post‘s White House bureau chief tried to alert Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, that his name was going to come up in the context of an upcoming story: “I just wanted to make sure John Podesta had a heads up that his name will be in a story concerning the White House’s ethics policy, which could run on Monday … This is just one line, pretty low down in the piece, but I don’t want him to be surprised since we never discussed it face-to-face”
- Donna Brazile, CNN: Brazile is the chair of the Democratic National Committee, but when she was still a CNN contributor, she managed to pass a question to the Clinton campaign that was to be asked at a March 2016 town hall between Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “From time to time I get the questions in advance.” The question was indeed asked.
- Clinton staffer “Placing a story” with Politico / New York Times: “place a story with a friendly journalist” “we have a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico” “we should shape likely leaks in the best light for HRC.”
- Clinton staff colluding with New York Times and Wall Street Journal to paint Hillary’s economic policies in a “progressive” light.
These are just a few examples of hundreds…
Freedom of the Press was predicated on a press to hold government accountable, not be in collusion with them.
Are there any questions that the mainstream media is rooting for and helping the liberal Democrats?
#3 – Create Hysteria Around Illegal Immigrant Deportations
Yesterday, I wrote about the high cost of illegal immigration for both immigrants and citizens.
Last week, the media went crazy showing one video after another as ICE agents were arresting illegal immigrants and starting the deportation process.
The odd part is that many in the media were acknowledging that nothing appeared out of the ordinary, except that the Trump Administration created a new order to fulfill the requirements of immigration law.
CBS This Morning on Wednesday openly fretted that Donald Trump’s new immigration orders “could create a climate of fear” for illegal “citizens.”
As a Senator, Senator Obama held a completely different view on illegal immigration than President Obama, and made it clear at the time he didn’t find it acceptable:
For eight years, Obama and the Democrats tried to convince us that we need illegals and that illegal immigrants should be normalized and accepted as a part of mainstream society.
Here are a few examples:
In addition, you can read my article that talks about the human consequences of illegal immigration

#4 – Protect Obamacare at All Costs
Since President Trump was elected, Obamacare’s failures are no longer protected as it collapses under its own weight.
For a few years now, deductibles have exploded in order to keep rising premiums from rising even higher.
In some counties around the country, there is only one insurance provider.
Last night, Tucker Carlson interviewed a former hospital President who identified the real problem…
It’s not insurance, it’s the healthcare industry.
Watch this incredibly insightful video and learn how the medical industry is what needed/needs reforming desperately:
Even though we all know that Obamacare was riddled with problems, Obama tried to convince us it was working.
However, even Bill Clinton said last fall that it’s the craziest thing and that it doesn’t work:
#5 – Create Fake News to Distract From Good Things Happening in the Trump Administration
Fake news has been with us for a while. In 2008, the media and Democrats claimed that the Republican Party would never again win a national election because they are just a bunch of old, white guys who are out of touch.
To make things more entertaining, the media has lost the narrative and their power, and they are angry about it.
In recent days, President Trump has been going after the press hard for what he refers to as “fake news.”
Earlier, I shared about collusion with Democrats, but that’s only one piece of it. Now, it has to do with objective journalism, or should I say lack of objective journalism.
The challenge for the press is that they don’t like Trump, never thought he would be President, and labeled him a joke.
They couldn’t discredit him as a candidate, but they want to now. They won’t stop trying but it isn’t going to work as I shared earlier this week.
Because he is in the way of their agenda on everything from climate to immigration, abortion, Supreme Court nominations, the environment, and taxes.
Objective journalism is out the window.
They have tried stories about Russia, prostitutes, his taxes and wealth, his businesses are profiting from his office… and much more.
Here is a link to an article in The Federalist which covers sixteen fake news stories.
They can’t let Trump have any victories. They can’t allow him any success. If he does, they will be out of power for a long time, and that is their ultimate fear.
What has the result been?
An Emerson Poll released on February 7 said that “The Trump administration is considered truthful by 49% of voters… (while) the news media is considered untruthful by 53%.”
When was the last time any politician was even close to the media in a poll?
The reality is people don’t trust politicians and they don’t trust the media. The trust that has been eroded has further divided the public as they are left to wonder who they can trust.
#6 – Convince the Public that Unemployment and the Economy is Growing When It’s Not
We have been told by President Obama that the economy is growing and that jobs are on the rebound.
Yet, in November 2016, CNBC reported:
“Some economists also think that workers are feeling discouraged and not actively seeking work. Others think there are more cyclical factors and even changes in the nature of the economy at work. Of particular concern is a decline in the participation rate for workers aged 25 – 54, which is the prime age range for workers.”
In November, the participation rate fell slightly, to 62.7 percent.”
In the same month, cnsnews.com reported that 94,609,000 people were not in the labor workforce.
That’s almost one-third of the entire US population.
To make matters worse, things don’t look good. More debt, lower savings, lower paying jobs. Wealth dropped by 28% in 2015.
#7 – Scream Loud Without a Big Stick
Since President Trump’s inauguration just over 30 days ago, the public may be growing tired of all the temper tantrums by the leftist activists.
They can scream loud, but they don’t have a big stick anywhere outside of the west coast and the northeast.
In the Weekly Standard yesterday, they said;
“The first official month of the Trump era saw a burning limo and a viral Nazi punch, a window-smashing black bloc at UC Berkeley, and a steady pace of “cathartic” Resistance marches. “Not My President’s Day” having come and gone.”
Liberals have to learn that you can’t protest everything and expect the public to hear all that is being said.
Bush was Hitler; Trump is Hitler. Bush lied, people died. Trump’s doing this, people are dying. Just change the issue. And people are getting worn out with all the over-the-top hysteria.
After a while, it’s just crying wolf.
From Madonna at the Women’s March to Democrats in the Senate failing to do their job and show up at hearings for cabinet appointments.
The worse part is, the activists have gotten lunier as the days go by.
Check out this insane interview:
“Refuse Fascism” Organizer Obliterates Herself On Tucker Carlson
As the Weekly Standard article points out, the more insane the “resisters” and activists get, the more air time they receive, and the more the public tunes them out and they lose the message for their cause.
If things keep going as they are, it’s my prediction that the Democrats and liberals will find themselves losing even more influence than they already have. They will hurt their ability to be taken serious as a national party.
Their fall is a very different one from the claims of the media and Democrats against the Republicans.
The average American voter isn’t a far left or far right person. Regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation, they are in the middle.
If President Trump is successful in fulfilling his agenda of more jobs, higher wages, and makes people feel safer it will only serve to hurt those who stood in the way.
He will get eight years and at least three more Supreme Court Justices (not including other Federal Courts) to reshape and redefine the country for thirty years.
The far left has been out of touch since 2008 and their overreach is a dangerous one for Democrats.
It almost makes me yearn for the days of President Clinton.
Personally, if I were a Democrat I would be listening to Joe Manchin (D- WV). He’s moderate, smart and he gets it.
