CNN has continued its attack on President Trump–Mueller report be damned!
Now the liberal news giant is attacking the President for refusing to participate in further shenanigans.
The networks top-spot piece on its website, April 24th, accused him of “stonewalling” and committing a “massive assault on accountability.”
On the 25th, CNN.com referred to the President’s actions as flat-out unconstitutional.
No one in their right mind expects much better from CNN these days.
But given the news network’s far reach–and the way it influences people we have to deal with every day–we think these allegations require some push-back. And we’re here to deliver that push-back!
President Trump is Trying to Get On With Governing, Instead of Fighting
In a more perfect world, or even just a more sane one, Democrats would accept the findings of the special investigation, let bygones be bygones, and get down to the business of running the nation.
Instead, they are spending more time trying to attack the President and less time serving the American people.
They’re also keeping President Trump from serving the American people. In this, they are committing a crime very similar to what they claim the President has committed.
Obstruction. Not of justice, but of the process that runs our country.
In a very real way, you could also consider that an obstruction of justice.
Democrats are using the legal system as a weapon against a president they think of as “deplorable”.
But any sane person will realize that the President and everyone associated with him has already been put through the ringer. Hundreds of hours of interviews, thousands of subpoenaed pages, and almost three-dozen indictments should prove that.
Any sane, non-vindictive person would agree.
But the Democrats just won’t stop.
Mueller’s investigation subpoenaed hundreds of hours of testimony and thousands of pages of documents. What is there to be found that hasn’t already been found?
The answer is, “Nothing,” and Donald Trump knows it.
Even the Trump-hating special counsel couldn’t convict him of anything. And they spent two years and $35 million trying to do just that! So what do Democrats hope to gain now?
The answer is, they want to eat up the Presidents’ time, keep him from accomplishing the things he wants to accomplish and, among other things, act like he is an ineffective president, when really he has actually been besieged like no other president in living memory.
Scott Jennings, former Special Assistant to the President under George W. Bush, recently addressed the issue.
“You have take it seriously. It’s going to be all-out warfare,” he said. “It grinds the administration to a halt.”
And that’s exactly what the Democrats seeming to be aiming for: Not justice, not truth, but the obstruction of Trump’s administration. It almost seems criminal.
No wonder there’s been a call to investigate the investigators. Many think it is a legal necessity. And Democrats would be (and are) hypocritical for calling it unfair. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
What Do Democrats Stand to Gain?
It’s a good question. It seems like no one benefits when the government is in gridlock. So why are the Democrats still focusing on obstruction, collusion–anything they can–instead of actually governing?
For one thing, Dems have to put up a good fight to satisfy their increasingly far-out and antagonistic voter base.
And when it comes to swing voters, they want to be able to point at the President and claim he can’t get anything done. But that strategy is failing with many independent voters.
Driton Nesho, co-director of the Harvard-Harris poll, is a man who has done extensive polling in the US, UK, India, and several other countries.
He has this to say about how the Mueller report has affected independent voters:
“It’s the independents in the middle that right now are breaking in favor of the president, [and] largely accept Barr’s memo and his conclusions.”
In other words, the witch-hunt has only succeeded in making President Trump more popular–and more electable.
That’s something that the increasingly vindictive Democrat party can’t or won’t acknowledge. Ultimately, that may be a good thing.
That makes the 2020 election look brighter for America’s vast and no-longer-silent majority.
