It’s actually really easy to see what is going on here with the rise of Mr. Everyman to the highest office on the planet as Obama and Clinton go out with a whimper. Now that the Trumpit has called the establishment out and people are waking up and realizing that “political correctness” is an attack on the first amendment, they don’t have that excuse to go to anymore, so they’ve invented another one.
What the Big Media aren’t saying is that they’re the gatekeepers of “true news stories”, even those that end in a whimper. They accuse Trump of ties to Russia so they can claim “Pravda-style” propaganda, all the while deflecting from the fact that they’re the ones that are actually controlling the mainstream narrative that We the Sheeple are supposed to buy into. This is why there was so much outrage when Trump won – because their whole campaign had been fear-mongering in an attempt to insure Trump’s failure. But of course it didn’t work, so now all those people who bought into their propaganda believe it’s the end of the world because that’s what they’ve been swallowing for so long. Especially-so with two main characters retreating with a whimper.
One of two things might happen – either they’ll wake up and realize they’ve been had, or they’ll double down and likely initiate a civil war just for the sake of standing up for their “right to not be offended”. All I can say to these people is “Grow up!” The Trumpit sounded and Clinton lost. Get over it!
What cost Hillary Clinton the election? Well obviously it couldn’t have had anything to do with her creepy, fake smile, her human-like warmth or the swamp of corruption or even treason that she has made for herself. It must be the Russians! And fake news! And a whimper! In his latest Firewall, Bill Whittle picks apart this nonsense and places the blame squarely on the head of the sore loser responsible for her thrashing.
Bill – as always, has hit the nail on the head yet again. Well done sir.
Then I came across this typically-excellent piece from Michael Goodwin in the New York Post, “Mr. Obama, Face Reality, Mr. Trump is Going to be President.” A perfect requiem not only for the disastrous Obama years, but also on the curtain call (and may it be the finale`!) of the Clinton Cabal and their cronies. The opening line says it all: “So this is how it ends — in a whimper wrapped in self-pity and recriminations.”
So this is how it ends — in a whimper wrapped in self-pity and recriminations. With President Obama on the defensive at his final press conference and Hillary Clinton’s last campaign event resembling a wake, the Democratic Party is limping off the stage and into the political winter.
It was supposed to sit atop the national power pyramid for decades, a new paradigm of liberals, progressives, the young, the old, the unions and blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Asians.
The torch would be passed from Obama to Clinton, a liberal Supreme Court would vastly expand executive power and the regulatory state would enforce climate-change orthodoxy on all industry and elitist dictates on every American. Globalism would be the new patriotism.
But a funny thing happened on the way to one-party dominance: The people who work for a living said no, hell no. Their revolt brings Donald Trump to the White House amid hopes of a revival of the economy and of the American spirit.
Thoroughly beaten, the Dems are at their lowest point in nearly a century. From the White House to Congress to statehouses, they are on the outside looking in.
Their punishment was well-deserved, as demonstrated by Obama and Clinton. Full of excuses and blaming everyone except themselves, their closing acts proved it is time for them to go.
They have nothing new to offer, with their vision of the future limited to larger doses of the same failing medicine and their intolerance for disagreement showing they would never learn from their mistakes. Their bad ideas had run their disastrous course.
