© 2016 Jim Spence - If you want to know how far out the Democrats have moved on something as basic as border security, you must take a look at this short video from the C-Span archives. It is a clip from a State of the Union speech by President Clinton in 1995. He made this speech after Democrats were trounced in the off year elections.
Are we in a time warp? It as if the Clinton speech writers went to work for Trump last year and all other Democrats migrated to a state of mind where they are willing to adopt many indefensible positions.
This week members of the Democratic Party have made it clear they will be defying the election results and pretending that what President Clinton said twenty-two years ago never happened. Why would they do this after the beatings they have taken?
Democrats must think because they continue to control the propaganda ministry (every news outlet except Fox) they can disrupt the transition of power in the wake of the 2016 election.
The Democrat's associates in the media are certainly doing their part to disrupt by distorting the truth like never before. Accordingly, efforts to tighten national security measures by Trump, which simply mirror the promises he made to the American people before the election, are being resisted in departments of the government like Department of Justice. Just last night Trump was forced to fire an insubordinate Obama holdover who seemed so clueless that…..um……forgive me for recycling this phrase………”elections have consequences,” she decided to write her own memo as if she were president.
Many observers wonder when Democrats are going to change tactics since their current tactics are not working.
Based on what I have seen, I am not convinced that Democrats know how to do anything else. It appears that they actually think what gets reported by every outlet except Fox will be regarded as the truth. It is as if they still refuse to accept the idea that voters do not trust the propaganda ministers at ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post and newspapers all over the country. This seems to be a serious mental block.
While Democrats believe that all the networks that carry their water reflect America, in the heartland, virtually every news item originating with these sources or being re-broadcast or re-printed by these sources is treated with great suspicion. The American people recognize that more than ever before journalists and their political agendas go hand in hand. Accordingly, most reports involving "polls" are absolutely meaningless. Most news stories are meaningless. Even most human interest features are so fraught with half-truths and innuendos that fewer and fewer people associate any credibility with them.After ten days what you see is what you get. Democrats are flirting with civil war. It would seem in their minds that elections only matter when they win.
