Year After Year, How Gullible Can the Left Be?

In 2016, Democrats were told repeatedly that their candidate, Hillary Clinton, was ahead by a remarkable amount and that her chances of winning the presidency were above 80%. Poll after poll showed her leading Donald Trump in state after state. Only one problem existed with all of this data, it was false. Pollsters were over-sampling Democrats, under-sampling Republicans, and over-relying on registered voters, not likely voters. The Left got snookered.

Some pollsters were actually skewing their results to show Clinton in the lead no matter what. Why? As Donald Trump, soon to be President Trump, pointed out, they were engaging in what he calls "suppression polling." When a poll indicates that your candidate is down, say, eight to12 percentage points or more, the tendency is to say, “What's the use, my candidate has already lost. So there is no point in going to the polls and voting.” 

Russia, Russia, Russia                

After Trump was elected in 2016, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr, Peter Strzok, Susan Page, and other senior officials of top intelligence and law-enforcement agencies, not to mention Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama, conspired in one way or another to bring down the duly elected president.    

Hence, we had the Mueller investigation, that spent untold numbers of hours, issuing more than 500 subpoenas, tying up the Trump administration staff, and campaign workers for two-and-a-half years. Mueller and his cunning bunch of investigators ruptured their collective spleens seeking to find any link, whatsoever. Did Donald Trump and company conspire with Russia? Mueller and company found no evidence, anywhere.

Lead investigator, the thoroughly corrupt Andrew Weissmann, gave it his all before clearing his cell phone along with the rest of his entire staff. Are we to presume that Donald Trump and his 2016 campaign staff were so outstandingly clever that they could conceal their multi-faceted collusion with Russia, spanning many months? And that Weissmann, accompanied by his Democrat junior pit bulls were unable to detect anything, even with unlimited resources? 

What’s Next? 

When Mr. Mueller made his report to Congress, on live TV, everyone across the nation and around the world, all could see that he was cognitively bankrupt. He didn't have much to report and apparently had done little actual work of his own commission.

The Left fell for the Russiagate facade, propagated primarily by the New York Times, hook, line, and sinker. When Russiagate fell apart, the hopelessly deluded executive editor, Dean Baquet, remarked that the Times would alter the focus of its coverage from the alleged 'Trump-Russia affair' to Donald Trump’s racism.'

"We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well," Baquet said, in a moronic statement the will outlive Baquet. "Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.” The official "newspaper of record" would now seek to expose ‘the racism’ of Donald Trump and America in general. 

Black and Hispanic approval of Trump, however, was already rising to historic levels. Some racist, eh? 

Impeach the President!

In addition to dozens of little and continual hoaxes, that the mainstream media either initiated or aggrandized, the next step to hook the Left was for Pelosi and her gang to claim that President Trump had engaged in a quid pro quo with the Ukrainian president. 

Once again, the Left fell for the ruse, while the claim itself had no merit. Indeed, the Bidens are the ones who have engaged in non-stop quid pro quos, around the world, for multi-millions of dollars. The press, predictably, doesn't want to discuss the Biden crime family.

The 2020 Election

Forecaster Nate Silver said that Biden had an 89% to 90% chance of winning. Dr. Allan Lichtman of the 13 Keys said Biden will win. Other forecasters said much the same. The polls, across the country, uniformly pointed to a Biden whitewash. He's up by six points here, eight there, 10 here, and so on. Nevertheless, once the fraud in the 2020 vote is exposed and the illegal ballots are thrown out, Donald Trump will secure more than 300 electoral votes. 

The Lefties are already in a tailspin. Gullible as they are, they’ve fallen for it all in 2020, even with the recent experiences they've endured. They should have known that their own mainstream media and polling industry is compromised to the core. I guess they're not going to learn a thing, once again.

So Wrong, So Often

The Left is consistently so wrong about so much. You'd think their experiences in the last two national elections and the witch-hunts and hoaxes thrown at President Trump, which have proven to be totally false, would convince some on the Left to be wary of their own 'vaulted sources." Yet, you'd be wrong.

As gullible as they are, they continue on the same path. How stupid can Leftists be? As stupid as stupid can be.
