~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
Now Progressives have lowered themselves even further using dead soldiers as a prop to attack President Donald J. Trump. Enter Florida Congressman woman and loud-mouthed race baiter, Frederica Wilson who is accusing the President of insulting the widow of Sgt. La David T. Johnson killed two weeks during an ambush in southwest Niger as a result of enemy fire.
Wilson who criticizes the President accusing him of being insensitive lives in a glass castle of her own making having voted “NAY” against measures pro veterans, their families and measures that would improve the Department of Veterans Affairs.
It turns out that U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson has frequently voted against measures intended to help veterans and their families, according to VoteSmart.org, a vote-tracking site whose founding board members included former presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford[…]
Former Congressional Staffers refusing to accept the 2016 presidential elections results have formed Indivisible, an anti-Trump organization (as if the atmosphere isn’t toxic enough) and manifesto for fellow disgruntled fascists fomenting discord entitled, “Indivisible: A practical guide for resisting the Trump Agenda.” [See Guide near bottom of post.]
According to The Daily Kos, the guide is a “defensive approach purely focused on stopping Trump from implementing an agenda built on racism, authoritarianism, and corruption” intended to gin up the masses for the 2018 and 2020 elections is nothing short of guerilla warfare against the president, his administration and the GOP.
The manifesto was prepared and is maintained by “Former Congressional staffers” Angel Padilla, Billy Fleming, Caroline Kavit, Emily Phelps, Ezra Levin, Gonzalo Martínez de Vedia, Indivar Dutta- Gupta, Jennay Ghowrwl, Jeremy Haile, Leah Greenberg, Mary Humphreys, Matt Traldi, Sara Clough, and Sarah Dohl.
“We: Are former progressive congressional staffers who saw the Tea Party beat back President Obama’s agenda.
We: See the enthusiasm to fight the Trump agenda and want to share insider info on how best to influence Congress to do that.
You: Want to do your part to beat back the Trump agenda, and understand that will require more than calls and petitions.”
The recommendations in the guide are starting points or so they say for the already unhinged.
“You: Should use this guide, share it, amend it, make it your own, and get to work.”
Its purpose as claimed is to “reveal best practices for making Congress listen.”
Notice the deliberate play on words, intended to deceive starting with the name of the organization “Indivisible” taken from the Pledge of Allegiance by the left who take a knee to the American flag and Pledge of Allegiance and “making Congress listen” a play on the phrase “make DC listen” coined by Senator Ted Cruz and used by the Tea Party which is an admission of that which Progressives have denied for years and that is the success of the Tea Party[i].
The Tea Party’s success was a disaster for President Obama’s agenda and for our country, but that success should give us hope today. It proved the power that local, defensive organizing can have.
With this in mind, we coordinated a group of former congressional staffers and advocates to develop “Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda.” It takes a few pages from the Tea Party playbook, focusing on its strategic choices and tactics, while dispensing with its viciousness. It’s the Tea Party inverted: locally driven advocacy built on inclusion, fairness and respect. It’s playing defense, not to obstruct, but to protect.
The guide is informed by a simple principle: Federal policy change in the next four years doesn’t depend on Mr. Trump but on whether our representatives support or oppose him. And through local pressure, we have the power to shape what they consider possible….
“while dispensing with its viciousness…” The Tea Party, vicious? Really? Like a rabid fascist jackass shouting “love trumps hate” while bashing in a Trump supporters’ head or car windows. Indivisible, Organizing for Action and all other community organizations involved in the war against the Republic is the exact opposite of the Tea Party. Moving on.
According to its website, Indivisible“energizes and informs Americans about government’s potential and enlists them to imagine and create the government we need for all to have a safe, healthy, just and prosperous future.”
The purpose is to bully and distract Republican bureaucrats (such as GOP leadership in the House and the Senate the primary targets) away from their agenda which as we can see from the White House leaks had in some instances slowed the President down.
As you can see by the hysterics that Progressive leadership in both Houses, their pundits, and media machine are employing this tactic. They must have enjoyed President Trump’s press conference Thursday more than they’re letting on. It was at least an hour and a half that part of Obama’s legacy was not being reversed.
Below are some pages that caught my attention.
Page 6 of the guide, focuses on what the Tea Party did wrong (propaganda), “They were almost purely defensive.” How could we? [See screenshot]
Page 7 – “USING THESE LESSONS TO FIGHT THE TRUMP AGENDA” – [See screenshot beneath excerpt]
“For the next two years, Donald Trump and congressional Republicans will control the federal government. But they will depend on just about every MoC to actually get laws passed. And those MoCs care much more about getting reelected than they care about any specific issue. By adopting a defensive strategy that pressures MoCs, we can achieve the following goals:
Stall the Trump agenda by forcing them to redirect energy away from their priorities. Congressional offices have limited time and limited people. A day that they spend worrying about you is a day that they’re not ending Medicare, privatizing public schools, or preparing a Muslim registry….”
Page 16 – “NOTE ON SAFETY AND PRIVILEGE” (bring out the snowflakes, the propaganda and the lies to gin up useful idiots itching for a fight) – Inciting violence:
“We do not yet know how Trump supporters will respond to organized shows of opposition, but we have seen enough to be very concerned that minorities will be targeted or singled out. Plan your actions to ensure that no one is asked to take on a role that they are not comfortable with — especially those roles that call for semi-confrontational behavior — and be mindful of the fact that not everyone is facing an equal level of threat. Members of your group who enjoy more privilege should think carefully about how they can ensure that they are using their privilege to support other members of the group. If you are concerned about potential law enforcement intimidation, consider downloading your state’s version of the ACLU Mobile Justice app to ensure that any intimidating behavior is captured on film. Please familiarize yourself with your state and local laws that govern recording, along with any applicable Senate or House rules, prior to recording. These laws and rules vary substantially from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Pages 17 – 26 are about infiltrating, obstruction, alerting the media and recording of the town hall [my emphasis], district offices and public events, actions of which we have witnessed over the past eight years. See manifest in its entirety below.
“We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. We need to use technology to connect people to service. We’ll expand USA Freedom Corps to create online networks where American can browse opportunities to volunteer. You’ll be able to search by category, time commitment and skill sets. You’ll be able to rate service opportunities, build service networks, and create your own service pages to track your hours and activities.
This will empower more Americans to craft their own service agenda and make their own change from the bottom up.”
Who would ever have imagined a former sitting American president plotting the destruction and termination of the presidency of the recently inaugurated president.
Who would have imagined former Congressional staffers under the former sitting president, the media, elected and non-elected bureaucrats colluding to delegitimize, impeach, thwart the agenda of and stage events with the aid of still federally employed staffers that would lead to prematurely terminating the tenure of a sitting president.
I hope Scott Pruitt who has just been confirmed to run the EPA has the stomach for what’s to come.
What is playing out here is not a novel but Barack Obama’s army. Obama, Congressional staffers, the Progressive leadership, goons like the mental midget Robert Reich and media propagandists have given their blessings to acts of insubordination by federal employees, riots, assaults on Americans, hateful rhetoric all of which is threat to the Republic and the President of the United States.
While this is Obama’s legacy which must be denied, at what point is the line crossed into treason? Sedition?
When does it become necessary to find the head of the snake and cut it off meaning (better clarify that), start bringing people up on charges and throw them in prison?
Will it come to that?
[i] These organizations have nothing in common with Conservatives and fleeing Democrats who last year voted Republicans into all three branches of government. What the left will never acknowledge is that we had help from a higher authority.
Although not the first time that Barack Obama has said it, last Thursday, Obama dispatched via a televised press conference to the world, one huge dog whistle.
The malignant narcissist who is clearly threatened by a Donald Trump presidency ordained that the 2016 Republican Party nominee is unfit to serve in the office of Commander-in-Chief. (Party of me believes that Obama was looking in the mirror when he said those words.
Obama then doubled down on the meme by ordering the NeverTrumpers, Republican Party leadership to retract all support behind the 2016 Republican Party presidential nominee (support that they never gave in the first place).
Just the other day, a New York Congressman, Richard Hanna (R-Barneveld) wrote an op-ed announcing that he will vote for Hillary Clinton.
News of a Republican crossing party lines to vote for Clinton spread like wildfire as if Republicans never crossed party lines for any reason before.
The news reports also gave the impression that Republicans were jumping ship en masse. Not true.
The media failed to mention that Hanna who has made it his business to vote across party lines is a RINO and retiring at year’s end.
Next stop, Chris Christie who it is reported earlier this week said that criticism of Khizr and Ghazala Khan was inappropriate. (Political correctness makes fools out of people.) Christie has not jumped ship but the mainstream media has at times inferred as much.
CNN, the Hillary propaganda channel, reported Wednesday that Maria Comella, a former aide to Chris Christie is voting for Hillary Clinton who feels that since “Donald Trump’s nomination, Republicans are ‘at a moment where silence isn’t an option.’”
In other words, good Republicans would not vote for Trump. (NeverTrumpers and their guilt shaming.) So good that Libertarian presidential candidate, Gary Johnson mentioned during a CNN townhall earlier this week that Mitt Romney “suggested that an endorsement might be in the offing.” (Who cares!)
In the meantime, GOP pundits, the mainstream media via the air waves, idiot box and social media in collaboration with an army of trolls are hitting Conservative sites, posting content and broadcasting to anyone within earshot that Trump is unfit and therefore, unworthy.
Translation: Trump is not one of us, he is unworthy, we did not choose him and he is a threat to our gravy train.
Sources indicate a concerted effort is now underway among a group of Establishment Democrats and Republicans to try and convince the American people that Donald Trump is mentally unfit to serve as President of the United States.
It is an effort initiated by Barack Obama himself when he declared during a recent press conference that Mr. Trump was “unfit to serve…”
The NeverTrumpers and Republican Party leadership in bed with their fellow Progressives on the left have resorted to the use of offensive and inexcusable language in their attacks against Trump on CNN (of course).
What is in play here is full-fledged brainwashing job for those sucking it up even going so far as to start a rumor that Trump might drop out of the election. They’re all lies.
This war against Donald Trump by NeverTrumpers is also a war being waged against the voters putting front and center the malevolence, insatiability for power and lunacy of the establishment.
Of course, Trump is not a quitter so the next step toward destroying Trump is this so-called intervention clearly intended to be used as a prop when the GOP leadership unleashes its final revolt and takedown of the presidential nominee.
Those members of the GOPe this week announcing that they are crossing over to vote for Hillary Clinton are allowing themselves to be used as propaganda tools against Trump and just in time for the so-called intervention. Coincidence? Nope! Do we care about their crossing over to vote for Hillary Clinton? Nope! Correction, only the next time they run for office.
The purpose behind the illusiondeception intervention which is expected to conveniently occur on the weekend when voters are distracted with other business is to take the illusiondeception intervention to the people when opportunity presents itself (anyday now, the clock is ticking) and say, “we tried but he didn’t listen…. we’re doing this for you, for the country.”
The GOPe are hedging their bets that if and when they do this, in November voters will hold their noses one more time and vote for a candidate of THE ESTABLISHMENT’S CHOOSING (damned fools, every one of them.) and should voters not take the bait and insist on Donald Trump, then the GOPe will continue its use of a sledge hammer to destroy with a vengeance all possibilities of a Trump win only to later blame those labeled by the establishment as “extremists” on the right aka Trump supporters.
Every stone thrown by the Republican establishment is a vote for Hillary Clinton. Every vote by a member of the Republican establishment vote for Hillary Clinton is a mandate of Obama’s policies and the expansion thereof under a Clinton presidency.
Neither can be seen as a surrender but a “cat out of the bag” moment that as suspected all along, the Republican Party establishment has always been snuggled up like a bug on the rug with the Obama administration.
I ran across article earlier in The Hill written by Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government which points out that the NeverTrumper alliance with Hillary Clinton under a Clinton presidency eliminates any future prospects of Obamacare being repealed even though Obamacare is on its deathbed.
“While many Never Trumpers — still upset that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush or their fallback, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), didn’t win the GOP nomination — argue that a Trump presidency might be bad for the country, they know that a Clinton presidency will be disastrous for virtually every principle they claim to hold dear….” .
“It is equally clear that those who insist on holding on to the Never Trump mantle after the GOP convention will bear the responsibility, as their continuing attacks on Trump only help put Clinton closer to calling the shots on the next round of national healthcare legislation….”
The NeverTrumpers could care less because even though they say it, it has been proven by their actions in spite of their words that this is not about American values but about maintaining power and self-interests and enrichment.
Manning’s article puts all that is at stake in its proper perspective.
For those who have spent the past seven-and-a-half years railing against ObamaCare from its initial discussion onward, the time is now to decide if they are willing to sacrifice any chance of restoring our nation’s healthcare system to one based upon markets, all because they lost the primary election to someone who they never expected to succeed.
From this day forward, every word written and spoken undermining Trump is an act of backhanded support for Clinton and the policies that she will push forward. So, Never Trumpers, if you want Clinton to finish the job of the nationalization of the healthcare system, keep bashing Trump, but don’t come back in 2017 trying to set the conservative position against HillaryCare when you accepted that outcome through your general election activities, making it a virtual impossibility to stop.
It is time to focus on the real consequences of a Clinton presidency and the permanent entrenchment of the Obama agenda as the fight shifts to Clinton’s attempts to expand upon it.
When viewed through that light, there is no excuse for anyone who claims to be a conservative or a Republican in any form to continue their attacks on Donald Trump. For Never Trump, it is time to suck it up and move on.
Just in case you were wondering, nope, you are not imagining that the Progressive establishment of both parties aka Communist America has declared war on our presidential nominee to throw Trump and American voters off the bus and over the cliff of the highest mountaintop.
The Republican Party leadership who has broken its pledge to Donald Trump, shirked its responsibilities to its constituency is doing the bidding of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce who supports trade agreements, the hiring of illegal immigrants over Americans maintains a vested interest in Donald Trump going down.
Trade is no panacea. Some workers lose their jobs to international competition, just as technological change and shifting consumer tastes regularly put some manufacturers out of business. It’s appropriate for the federal government to provide these workers with training and transition assistance — and of a better quality than current federal programs….
Staying true to form the U. S. Chamber of Commerce really gives a damn.
Of all the nefarious deeds taking place or being put into action by the establishment against Donald Trump and voters, none has anything to do with God, family or love of or what is best for the nation.
It is about the power and voice that has been taken away from the people by an establishment desperate to hold on to that power and more than willing to continue suppressing the voice of we, the people.
It is not we, the people who are the extremists but the factions infringing upon the voice of millions for their own selfish gains.
Their problem is that we, the people, have yet to begin to fight.
