Cat out of the bag

May 11, 2021

An unnamed White House staffer told New York Magazine exactly how they’re bamboozling voters with the help of a compliant media:

“[A]t his hundred-day mark, Biden is the most liberal president we’ve had — and the public thinks he’s a moderate. That’s a winning strategy to me. They’re willing to accept that you’re gonna write this piece as long as they know that swing voters in Colorado aren’t gonna read it.”

In short, they’re counting on a biased media misinforming Americans that Biden is a moderate instead of the most far-left radical we’ve ever had in the White House, but they’ll only admit it to a liberal New York magazine because they assume you’re never going to see that. Apparently, they never counted on folks like us, who read the news so you don’t have to and pass along all the ugly truths that they really don’t want you to know.

If you ever wonder how people could seriously believe that Obama had history’s only “scandal-free Administration,” then you don’t fully comprehend the lengths to which the media will go to smother any stories that reflect badly on their anointed politicians. Because they were so fanatical about replacing Trump, they’ve now put their shield of protection around Biden. If not, then we’d not only be hearing every day about the border crisis, looming inflation and the dismal jobs numbers, we’d also be seeing banner headlines about the brewing conflict of interest scandal involving his Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm.

The article at the link explains that Biden has been heavily promoting an electric vehicle company for which Granholm served as a board member, and she still owns millions of dollars’ worth of vested stock. She also has the power to make energy policies that could greatly boost her stock’s price. Yet the story has barely made a ripple in the same media that demanded an ethics investigation of Ivanka Trump just for saying on Twitter that she likes Goya brand black beans.

Crude oil prices rose today after hackers broke into the computer system of Colonial Pipeline, forcing the company to shut down one of America’s major fuel delivery arteries. It’s not yet clear how bad the ransomware attack is or who’s behind it, but current suspicions point to a cybercriminal gang operating out of Russia.

This once again illustrates how dependent America is on the reliable flow of oil and how dangerous foreign hackers can be. Thank goodness we have a President who made us energy independent, okayed the building of a new major pipeline and banned Chinese, Russian and Iranian companies from providing hardware and software for America’s power grid.

Oh wait, I forgot: we replaced that President with Joe Biden, who reversed all those things! Well, at least someone at the White House finally realized how stupid one of them was. The suspended Trump executive order banning Chinese, Russian and Iranian involvement in our power grid has now been unsuspended. Is it possible that even liberal Democrats are capable of learning from experience? Or did someone with common sense just hack into their brains?

From Sharon:

Mike please stop blaming the Capitol Hill protest for the Blue Reich...this has been in the works for years and they were pulling it during the Obama and Trump years. And who buys it? Please get real.

From the Gov:

Thanks for writing, Sharon. You and I both have valid points to make. You are correct in saying leftists have been working for years to make happen what we are “suddenly” seeing now. It has literally taken generations to get us here.

It’s not accurate, though, to say I blame those Trump supporters for what the “Blue Reich” is doing, as the left would have been driving the same steamroller regardless. What I do say is that the Capitol Hill protest helped their effort immeasurably.

When the protest got out of hand, it helped put gas in that steamroller. It was a gift to the left.

Social media and mainstream news continue working overtime and even engaging in censorship to maintain that Trump supporters are “domestic terrorists” who believe “The Big Lie” of election fraud. Do a search on Google or Yahoo and see what comes up. So, yes, millions of ill-informed people buy this.

Timed as it was to coincide with the change of administration, it gave Biden’s people all the excuse they needed to amp up the violations of our civil rights. By now you’ve seen my commentaries on the government teaming with Big Tech to censor and even spy on “domestic terrorists.” The FBI is cracking down, too, and we've seen how they operate with their pre-dawn raids. Of course, by “domestic terrorists,” they mean YOU AND ME –- anyone who would don the evil, racist MAGA hat. The Capitol Hill protest greased the wheels for all this.

How I wish we could all get into the Way-Back machine and go back to January 5, to warn the protesters about the future and prevent what was going to happen the following day. An unarmed woman was shot to death. And Trump was blamed and impeached on his way out of office for “inciting” it all. In contrast, a completely peaceful protest by thousands of his supporters would have had the needed effect.

Again, I don’t “blame” the protesters for what the left has done and continues to do, but the ones who let their passion interfere with their thinking made a huge mistake that I can never defend.
