Democrats seem bent on bring­ing down Trump

The News-Times - - OPINION -

Chal­leng­ing and sad are my ef­forts to de­scribe the er­rant be­hav­ior of the Demo­cratic party and their pas­sion­ate sup­port­ers who reg­u­larly con­trib­ute to th­ese pages. Hav­ing used the last ar­row in their quiver, that be­ing the Mueller Re­port, they now must re­sort to their sig­na­ture ac­tion: char­ac­ter as­sas­si­na­tion. Stated dif­fer­ently, good ole mud sling­ing.

Stung by the use of the word “spy­ing” by At­tor­ney Gen­eral Wil­liam Barr, and his sub­se­quent state­ments re­gard­ing his de­sire to find the “pred­i­cate”on which the FBI re­quests for FISA war­rants were based, the Democrats scurry about for some­thing, any­thing, to hang their hats on. They are, or should be, aware that the fruits of two years of in­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ism by crack re­porters has been re­al­ized, and the re­sults when ex­am­ined by At­tor­ney Gen­eral Barr, will ex­pose the en­tire grand plot to over­turn the re­sults of the 2016 elec­tion.

The FBI, the Jus­tice De­part­ment and oth­ers in­volved in this grand scheme will be ex­posed. Oh, and the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion, too. All were acutely aware of this sin­is­ter op­er­a­tion and its de­sign to un­der­mine Don­ald Trump. The Democrats must con­tinue their ef­forts to sti­fle any and all ex­po­sure of this rad­i­cal over­throw. At all costs, Obama and his legacy must be pro­tected.

Given all their at­tempts to hog-tie Pres­i­dent Trump, the Pres­i­dent has man­aged to ac­com­plish great things. The econ­omy is mov­ing at a brisk pace, jobs which we were told “would never come back to the US,” have come back. No need to men­tion the un­em­ploy­ment rate be­ing the low­est in 50-plus years and trade deals be­ing re­al­ized to the ben­e­fit of our coun­try. Of course, th­ese re­al­i­ties mean noth­ing to our friends, the Democrats or, the reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tors to th­ese pages who con­tinue to find new words in their lex­i­con of hate.

Well, to them I of­fer a ray of hope. The Democrats, sin­is­ter fel­lows (and ladies) they are, have been plot­ting to see that this pres­i­dent must not be re-elected. There are myr­iad rea­sons for this, but I’ll give you just two: the Supreme Court, and the ul­ti­mate shred­ding of the Obama legacy by a sec­ond term.

So rest as­sured my friends on the other side of the po­lit­i­cal spec­trum, your party is even now mak­ing in­roads in at least two States: Penn­syl­va­nia and Texas. No can­di­date can win with­out th­ese. Not even Trump. Of course, given the as­ton­ish­ing se­lec­tion of wannabes on the Demo­crat side, any­thing can hap­pen. Let the games be­gin!
