FLOWER MOUND, TX — AUGUST 22, 2020 — How do you feel about the numerous calamities our country has been hit with since the presidential campaign began in earnest? It was only about 6 months ago that our economy was breaking records every day. Unemployment was at the lowest levels ever for blacks, Hispanics, Asians and women. President Trump had made us energy independent, foreign countries that had taken advantage of us for decades were now paying their fair share on the global stage, and 2 new conservative Supreme Court Justices had been confirmed. It looked like the left-wing cabal of America-hating socialists were once again being put in mothballs. Trump was doing what voters had given up on long ago; the idea that an elected official would actually fulfill campaign promises.
What were the radical Democrat socialists going to do to reverse all this good news for our country? They had already failed with their false Russia collusion narrative and some of them could be facing prison sentences for their treasonous spying on a duly elected Chief Executive. The fake news media no longer seemed to have the clout to muzzle the man who declared war on corruption in the deep state. In fact, they despised him for having the audacity to tell the truth about their absence of journalistic ethics. The reason power was given to the press under the First Amendment was because the Founding Fathers needed an entity that would be objective in its coverage, thereby keeping the people informed when their government showed signs of becoming a foul-smelling swamp.
But, what do we do when the media dives into the murky slime and swims with their venal Democrat accomplices? Trump was smart enough to get his messages directly to the people via Twitter and through his massive campaign rallies. That enraged leftists even more! How would they silence the guy who is exposing their sinister plot to overturn the election of the people’s choice to lead our country? Communication is the key in any campaign to win over voters. Knowing how effective Trump is in his direct contact with voters, the left had to find a way to sever that linkage. Yet, how do they keep him from appearing in massive arenas, brimming over with thousands of enthusiastic supporters, while millions more viewed the events on news programs and social media?
It would take a plague akin to the “Black Death” to keep freedom-loving Americans huddled in their homes, afraid to mingle with family, friends, and neighbors. In addition, they’d have to be reminded every day of the death toll caused by the mysterious malady. Prominent physicians and epidemiologists would be needed to appear on national television advising people to stay away from each other and wear a mask if you must go out of the house. Even the President would have to defer to the medical specialists, lest he be blamed for every alleged Covid-19 fatality. When Trump demonstrated his executive competence by tackling the pandemic with all the forces at his disposal, it was not praised by his enemies.
Even those like N.Y. Governor Cuomo, who requested and was given everything he asked for, didn’t have enough integrity to admit how helpful Trump was during the crisis. One would hope that, if this truly were a disease of biblical proportions, Democrats and Republicans would be working together to defeat it and save the world. Instead, it clearly was just another political issue for Democrats to bludgeon the president with. Is it too much to believe that the entire pandemic was orchestrated to remove a popular leader who swore to expose the entrenched corruption that had been hiding in plain sight for generations?
Suppose you were a powerbroker in the government who had enriched yourself and your family during decades of bribery, extortion, influence-peddling and other nefarious schemes. Suppose further that you felt invulnerable inside that web of deceit because everyone had something on everyone else. You could advance your schemes with impunity because you and your associates would never let an outsider get a position in that rarified zone at the nation’s capital. Suddenly, the unthinkable occurs, a man who owes no favors to the “establishment” wins a resounding victory that puts him in the seat of power.
After many sweat-filled, sleepless nights you and your comrades decided that your purloined fortunes were in jeopardy. Furthermore, you could be facing long prison sentences and possibly capital punishment for treason. What would you do to save yourself from such a fate? Would you harness the most potent forces in your orbit to destroy him? Would those forces be influential enough to create a pandemic that would keep your antagonist from projecting his charismatic appeal to large audiences? In Mein Kampf, Hitler wrote about creating a lie that was so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” From what I’ve seen of the vicious extremists in the Democrat Party, I wouldn’t put anything past them.
