"They actually believed, without a shred of actual evidence, that Hillary Clinton was qualified to be President even though her record is one of incompetence, poor judgment, corruption and failure. "
The Left Is Thoroughly Bamboozled
approaches, the leftist media, the Democrats, and the moonbats that make up the
nation's academic class are well and truly melting, as surely as the wicked
witch of the Wizard of Oz melted when Dorothy tossed
some water on her. So thoroughly, deeply convinced
of their own superiority in all things political, legal, cultural, gender, and
all branches of learning that they have created their own parallel universe in
which Trump could not possibly have won, everyone loves Obama and Obamacare,
the economy is booming, unemployment is low, humans are destroying the planet
with global warming, global cooling, climate change, and/or bad weather, and
Hillary was a shoe-in to win the 2016 election. They actually believed,
without a shred of actual evidence, that Hillary Clinton was qualified to be
President even though her record is one of incompetence, poor judgment,
corruption and failure. They have been bamboozled for so long that they
have lost the ability to see reality. They want no part of it
because in their parallel universe these things cannot possibly be true.
1995, in The Demon-haunted World: Science as a Candle in the
bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re
no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us.
It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been
taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”
the bamboozle, once-reputable news outlets eagerly publish fake news if
they think it will hurt Trump. The same news organizations have, for ten
years, refused to publish anything, even the obvious truth, that might
reflect poorly on Obama. That is how the bamboozle works.
devotees. There is no "97% scientific consensus" that humans
are causing catastrophic climate change. That is a lie. Science is
not decided by consensus. It is based on provable scientific method, not
computer models. But confront a believer with some facts and they
immediately launch into ad hominem attacks having nothing whatever to do with
the topic. So committed to their false belief in this global hoax, they
will attack the simplest valid scientific fact if it is contrary to their
beloved faith in man-caused destruction of the planet. They will
not cite science but will accuse the "denier" of some crude
variation of stupidity. Anthropogenic Global Warming is the
charlatan that has captured them. So felled by this belief is new Senator
Kamala Harris that she cluelessly grilled CIA cabinet pick Mike Pompeo
about his grasp and commitment to that particular bamboozle! He politely
replied that he respected all laws passed to protect the environment but that
his job was in a different realm. California Republicans hoped
Harris would be a tad less dim than Barbara Boxer; she is not.
not-native-American senator from MA, relentlessly badgered Dr. Ben Carson, HUD
cabinet nominee and one of the finest men on the planet, about using HUD money
that might benefit Trump even one dollar since his business is "housing
development." She would not stop. She embarrassed herself.
She has not a clue how a businessman like Trump makes money. And
Obama appointed her to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau!
Congress have degrees from prestigious universities. We mortals have for
too long been seduced by their supposed brilliance. Those degrees are
meaningless for the most part. Among the younger Democrat members they
are just proof of their wiling indoctrination by the Left. These
folks are in shock at the election results because not only do they believe
they are smarter than the rest of us, they had ultimate faith in their
powers of persuasion, especially those lefty journalists. They are
stunned that the public did not vote the way they instructed them to vote.
however, are very, very smart. When you hear Ted Cruz, Mike Pompeo, Mike
Lee or Tom Cotton speak about the law and the Constitution, no one can deny
that those other people, the Al Frankens and Elizabeth Warrens
of Congress, have no business being there, deciding what the rest of us
can and cannot do, drive, eat, drink, own, say or think, etc.
smart indeed, much smarter, for the most part, than their Democrat
interrogators. Sessions, Pompeo, Tillerson, Mattis, Carson! Class
acts, each one of them. But the Democrats in the House and the
Senate, the ones who sit on those committees and cast aspersions on the fine
people Trump has chosen simply because Trump chose them, should be ashamed of
themselves. The number of Democrats who have vowed not to work with
Trump or acknowledge his legitimacy is growing: Maxine Waters, John
Lewis, Schumer (unless Trump moves left), Barbara Lee, Luis Guiterrez,
Katherine Clark, Earl Blumenauer, Raul Grijalva, Jared Huffman. Childish,
intolerant, un-democratic sore losers all. Republicans, no matter how
distressed by Obama's re-election, never came close to this form of gross
in the early years of the last century and was thoroughly embraced by Woodrow
Wilson, an actual racist. After the disaster that was WWI, wiser
heads prevailed but the seed of Wilson's intolerance has never been
eradicated. The current American Left has been similarly bamboozled for
several generations now. The radicals of the 1960s became tenured
professors and from that moment on dictated who could and would teach
universitystudents for the next fifty years. Howard Zinn's book, A
People's History of the United States, has done more to harm this nation
and its young people than Putin could ever do. Zinn's and his
acolyites' conviction that the United States was and is a force for
evil is de rigueur on every high school and college
campus in the country. Its tenets have become a matter of faith since it
was published in 1980. The book was and is the ultimate bamboozle.
administration bring about enough quick and drastic change for the better that
the fury of the left will be mollified. Those of us on the right are
simply relieved that the eight-year nightmare of the purposeful crippling of
our country is over.
