The Left's All-Out War on Trump
The Patriot Post ^ | 02/17/17 | David Limbaugh

Posted on 02/17/2017 10:14:09 AM PST by pgkdan

Please don’t tell us conservatives that we need to find common ground with the Left during this era of Trump. That would only advance liberals' cause, because they have no intention of working with President Trump. They are conducting an all-out war against him and his administration, and appeasement efforts wouldn’t change that.

What the naive among us need to understand is that the Left plays hardball. Liberals subscribe to an end-justifies-the-means philosophy. They are not fair. They don’t intend to be fair. They believe they are entitled to advance their America-transforming agenda whether in or out of power, and no amount of wishful thinking can alter that reality.

They will say and do practically anything to further their vision for America, and it doesn’t matter if they did the opposite yesterday. A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little conservative minds.

The leftist machine purports to be opposed to Trump for his allegedly dastardly actions, but he has barely had time to get started (though he deserves great credit for what he has done so far). Truth be told, liberals' opposition springs not from what he’s done — other than the travel ban — but from who he is and the threat he represents to their agenda.

They told us he would be a tyrannical autocrat, and just four weeks into his term, they claim to have him dead to rights on the charge. Yet Trump has not engaged in any illegal conduct or committed any lawless overreaches. President Obama, on the other hand, was habitually lawless, and the Left, far from being concerned, reveled in it. Ends and means.

Understand this: The Left has no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia to affect our election. It is absurd that we are even forced to talk about this. Smear with innuendo and slander — that’s liberals' MO.

In case you haven’t noticed, these professional malcontents have organized throughout the nation, with more than a little help from the community organizer in ex-chief, Barack Obama. They have placed themselves throughout the nation to make mischief — not the kind you smile at but the kind designed to bring down a duly elected president.

With remarkable foresight and patience, progressives have conspired for decades to plant themselves in America’s important institutions, from the universities to the halls of government in secure civil service jobs. Many of these people are working overtime inside and outside government to undermine, scandalize, sabotage and ultimately bring down the Trump administration in its incipiency. That tactic is a lot easier than trying to block his desperately needed reform agenda on the merits.

I strongly suspect that leftists within our intelligence agencies criminally leaked classified information to corroborate their claim that Trump colluded with Russia to interfere with the presidential election. They thought they’d hit pay dirt with reports that before Trump took office, his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak allegedly about reviewing the recent sanctions Obama had imposed on Russia.

Can you imagine the salivating? Here’s the smoking gun. Flynn talked to Russia. Trump likes Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russia hacked the United States. Trump won the election. Therefore, Trump colluded with Putin to engineer his election victory over Hillary Clinton. That is one convoluted syllogism, isn’t it?

The Left doesn’t care about the truth of the matter. Once liberals obtained what they considered a colorable morsel of damning evidence, they insisted their fears about Trump were already vindicated. He was guilty as charged. Except that he wasn’t.

Flynn has stated that his conversation didn’t touch on sanctions. The New York Times, in its story reporting that Trump campaign aides had repeated contacts with Russian intelligence agents, admitted it had seen no evidence of cooperation or collusion between the Trump team and the Russians regarding the election. That little tidbit has not found its way into any headline in the mainstream media.

Liberals hate Trump, and they hate that they lost the election, and they are not going to tolerate it. I hope the rest of America understands that.

They are not only disgracefully pretending they have hard evidence of misconduct leading directly to Trump but also ignoring the egregious misconduct of the leakers and the real threat that poses to national security.

Trump got off to an incredibly impressive start, but liberals have now delivered a blow to his momentum, and they are poised to finish the job. They are strategically placed in our cultural institutions and throughout our vast bureaucracy and are coordinating in every state to stage planned protests that look spontaneous. Richly funded by George Soros and other like-minded America haters, they are inspired by the shadow leadership of former President Obama and his activist organization formed for this very purpose.

I will not defend misconduct on the part of elected officials and their appointees — if it actually occurs — just because they are Republicans. But I am not going to sit by silently as the Left continues to smear and sabotage this newly inaugurated president based on shards of facts that don’t prove their allegations.

I realize that nothing we do will stop the Left or dampen its single-minded determination to destroy Trump and preserve Obama’s radical agenda, but we can prevent the Left from succeeding if we fight back with equal energy and commitment. But that will be impossible unless we fully recognize what’s going on — the tactics of the Left and liberals' ruthlessness. We are, in effect, in a war that we didn’t start.

So please keep your eyes open and prepare to fight back.

In the meantime, let’s pray that President Trump will not be unduly distracted by these efforts and can focus on advancing an agenda that will restore economic growth and shore up America’s national security. His news conference on Thursday gives me great confidence that President Trump fully understands what the Left is doing. He is undeterred and undistracted — and pressing forward with his agenda. The Left, in turn, probably now understands that it has unleashed a tiger.

This is a very good piece even though there's nothing new for most Freepers but Limbaugh puts it all together in one well written piece that we can share with any doubters we may know.

We’re going to be barraged right up to Election Day 2020. That’s the tactic: the press is just going to be outraged about anything and everything and there will be nothing but screaming headlines and breathless newscasts. Everybody wants to go back to Clinton’s golden age and the good-ole-days of Obama, where everything was calmly going down the dumper.

And this is exactly the reason there must be a purge of Obama appointees everywhere, particularly in the national security agencies. It seems it may have already begun at the State Department and must spread across the government. These people would destroy our constitutional republic given the chance to regain power because power is more important than anything for them. Get rid of them NOW! If we don’t, they will get rid of us all the way up to the President.

I am pleasantly surprised. I didn’t expect David to come out swinging in support of Trump. Good article. Thanks to the OP for posting.

This is our opportunity to wipe this people out from any position of power at any level. Then though education, jobs and following Judeo-Christian ethics and new generation of people will rise and their lives in the inner cities will improve.

There is no negotiation. Trump, as I see it, will demand the best from everyone, and I can see that he will not tolerate laziness and the kind of grid lock we’ve see in our politics for decades.

Very funny yesterday when he called Schumer a light weight.

The left and their collusive lying associates in the media lost big many months ago.

The only thing that has changed is they continue to lose big.

They’ve repeatedly been exposed for what they are. Even many of those drooling in cups have finally figured it out.

Trump needs to announce a reduction in force of ALL government agencies and lay off everyone hired during the Obama administration.

They are already comparing this Flynn ordeal to Watergate and Trump to Hitler. With nearly four years left, where are they going from here? They have shot all the arrows in their quiver and missed. God bless Trump.

Let me just say I do not see the dimoKKKRATS reaching across the aisle. They never do, from their standpoint it is the Republicans who are supposed to reach across the aisle and join the dimoKKKRATS.

Here is the Opposition Party - the Left.

The Opposition Party, and yes, they are for total destruction of Trump and anything normal, such as constitutional law, traditional family, Christianity, and you and me.

The Opposition Party is:
- msm (CNN #FAKENEWS, NBC, etc)
- Democrats
- GOPe/RINOS ( such as McCain, etc)
- Hollywood
- Education (colleges, etc)
- intelligence community

Yak, yak, yak. Talk, talk, talk. Same mantra day in - day out.

Just ignore the Moonrats. Let them burn down their own cities while we watch with a grin. If they come to torch your house, shoot 'em.

That's the democrat definition of compromise. Republicans completely abandon their principles and give in and the democrats get what they want. 100% of the time!

If anyone reading this wants to email President Trump or Vice President Pense and tell them you’re behind them no matter what the fake news media says, or whatever you would like to say, here’s the link.
