Have you ever noticed that every time President Trump’s approval ratings go up, something happens in the news cycle to push them back down?

The reason is simple. Democrats tell lies and weaponize crises. Always. They are opportunists who wait until their opponent is at his lowest, then throw a sucker punch. 

When horrific events happen like the Chinese coronavirus or the tragic death of an unarmed American like George Floyd, Democrats spring into action, pretzel-twisting the narrative into something it isn’t. Or they create a fake crisis then deviously offer themselves as the balm to heal it.

Simplified: They make stuff up. If their behavior were not so destructive it would be predictable to the point of boring.

It takes little effort. All that’s needed is an illusion believable enough to convince woke lemming disciples to take a kamikaze dive off a cliff into the abyss of anarchy, or wherever duty calls. 

As humbly as I know how to say this, I would be mortified to be called a Democrat. They have become deranged and detached from reality. This detachment from reality and propensity to lie deepened around the 2000 election and is the reason that for the first time in history, America did not have a peaceful transfer of power after the 2016 presidential election. 

The most significant difference between the sore losers of 2000 and 2016 is the radicalization of Democrats. The hanging chads of 2000 became Russian boogeyman, the premise used to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and overturn the election.    

Their Trump-Russia collusion fabrication was an engineered crisis of epic proportions. 

As I’ve written before but bears repeating, they wasted the better part of three years supposedly chasing fake spies and phony ties to “Russia collusion” when all they had to do is pull out a mirror. It was a con job from the start.

When that lie bombed, they moved on to impeachment. That failed too.

Meanwhile, declassified documents about Obama-era political spying came to light. Lucky for them, COVID-19 showed up in the nick of time to turn everyone’s attention.

Squirrel!

Rather than calling COVID-19 for what it is, these miscreants dubbed it the Trump virus. To stunt economic growth that would benefit Trump, leaders in Democrat-run cities and states told people to hunker down indefinitely. (As if the novel coronavirus is any more dangerous than feces-covered streets, squalid homeless camps, unemployment, poverty, and rampant crime).

Consequently, businesses closed and unemployment rose. Those who peacefully protested authoritarian policies were shamed, shunned, and arrested.

COVID-19 quickly faded into the shadows with news of George Floyd’s death. Democrats had a new crisis to weaponize. Social distancing be damned, they flooded the streets protesting, while anarchists burned and destroyed everything else in sight. 

They embraced chaos and destruction like an old sweater on a snowy day. 

After all, nothing communicates justice for George Floyd better than smashing glass, killing people, and stealing stuff.

Albeit peaceful protests are as American as apple pie, there is no place in civilized society for anarchy. Rest assured, if destroying what makes this country great is their “pretty please,” then certainly totalitarianism is their “cherry on top.”

And these fatalistic ideas are nothing new. Four years before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Osama bin Laden told CNN during an interview: “We declared jihad against America because America is unjust, criminal, and tyrannical.” 

The left’s been echoing that rhetoric ever since.

Paradoxically, bin Laden’s sentiment for America differs little from the cacophony of wild accusations, insidious insinuations, and hare-brained inferences voiced by Democrats yelling at the sky— thrashing in the throes of resistance and revolution over a lie that at her core, America is racist and evil.

There is a reason the Bible’s top 10 thou shall and shall nots includes lying. 

Tyrants have used lies throughout history, perhaps none more sadistically so than Germany in the 1930s. The stench of death rising from concentration camps, gas chambers, and mass graves highlighted the effectiveness of Adolf Hitler’s (and his propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels’) ethos: If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed. 

Although the fresh air of truth floats just above their noses, it’s selectively out of Democrats’ reach. Therefore, they remain content hog-scratching through the mud piles of defamations, innuendoes, and misrepresentations—in search of a mouthwatering morsel of mistruth they can twist into something useful for their cause. After all, the Devil deals in counterfeits, you know.
