Macro Rubio Totally Nails What the Left Doesn’t Get About Trump–They’re Still Clueless

Published

on

Ever since he got into politics, Trump has been riding on the backs of those who hate him.

Remember back in 2016, when he bragged about how small his campaign budget was because the media gave him so much free press?

Or how, as the other Republican candidates slowly fell behind him, even those who had hated him in the beginning began to change their tune?

What about now–is there anyone at all among the Never Trump right who hasn’t defended him at least once?

Trump is more in tune than anyone else in America with how much his negative press helps him, and if you take a birds-eye view of his entire political career, it’s hard not to admit how brilliant the man is for constantly leveraging it in his favor.

The people who hate Trump the most are so blinded by their own passions they have absolutely no idea how much their unhinged rants and blatant, stunning hypocrisy pushes more and more people over to the right.

It’s both beautiful and crazy.

And few people know this better than his former presidential opponents such as Marco Rubio, who dropped an incredibly profound tweet about this fascinating phenomenon on Monday:

“Trump haters still haven’t realized how much they help him with their condescension of those who either voted for him or don’t share their hatred of him,” he wrote. “And how much they help him with their irrational hostility towards those who work for him.”

He is speaking, of course, of the over-the-top tone Democrats have been hitting in response to Trump’s immigration policies, which they literally just realized result in the separation of children from their parents when detained by ICE for crossing the border, despite the fact that the same thing was happening under Obama.

This kind of cognitive dissonance is all too apparent to those who are not stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and it’s a huge turn-off to less passionate voters who can tell hypocrisy when they see it.

The left seems to have well overplayed their hand when it comes to the glaring hypocrisy of “tolerance” and “love”, and American voters are waking up. Over the last two years, paradigms have begun to shift, and it doesn’t look good for Democrats, who can’t let go of their bitterness at Trump’s election, nor can they hide their contempt for the people who voted for him.

If they’re not careful, the other shoe may be about to drop. November is right around the corner–if they don’t want to drive more voters into the red, they’d better wake up and stop acting like spoiled toddlers who were deprived of a treat they’d assumed would be handed to them.

Biden Admits That He Has ‘No Answer’ for High Gas Prices

Just in time for the holidays, no less.

Published

on

Within the conservative corners of the internet, a new phrase is hitting the economic nail on the head:  Bidenflation.

The concept is simple:  The Biden administration’s consistent missteps have now brought a very real fiscal emergency to the United States in the form of rampant, near-runaway inflation.  There are a myriad of factors involved, including the ever-worsening supply chain issues that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has attempted to blame on the unvaccinated.

Now, with gas in ultra-liberal California cresting $7 per gallon, the President is openly admitting that he has no solution for the situation.

President Biden admitted during a CNN town hall Thursday night that he has no immediate solution to the problem of spiking gas prices and suggested that Americans would not start seeing relief at the pump until next year.

“My guess is, you’ll start to see gas prices come down as we get by and going into the winter – I mean, excuse me, into next year, 2022,” the president told moderator Anderson Cooper at the Baltimore event.

“I don’t see anything that’s going to happen in the meantime that’s going to significantly reduce gas prices.”

And then…

“I must tell you, I don’t have a near-term answer,” Biden added before musing on the possibility that he could “go in the [Strategic] Petroleum Reserve and take out and probably reduce the price of gas maybe 18 cents or so per gallon, [but] it’s still gonna be above three bucks.”

This economic squeeze looks to be coming to its crescendo at exactly the wrong time, as American consumers look to begin their annual holiday spending blitz in the coming weeks.

Liz Cheney Accuses Fellow Republican of Pretending to Work on Jan 6 Committee

Yet another mess has been discovered within the already-embattled Jan. 6th committee.

Published

on

In the coming months, there is little doubt that our nation will be inundated with news coming out of the select committee on January 6th, and that the corrosive divide of our nation will once again be ramping up.

The committee, which many within the Republican Party have written off as a partisan attempt to damage Donald Trump’s chances at reelection in 2024, has already turned bold this week, forcing a vote to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of court, despite the former Trump adviser’s insistence that he is simply awaiting a court ruling on a claim of executive privilege before proceeding.

Now, in a bizarre twist to the tale, anti-Trump Republican Liz Cheney, who serves on the embattled committee, is now accusing Jim Banks, a fellow Republican who is no longer a part of the group, of fraudulently presenting himself as the ranking member of the select committee.

The revelation came as the House debated whether to hold Steve Bannon, a former adviser to former President Donald Trump, in criminal contempt of Congress for ignoring a subpoena from the select committee. As vice chairwoman of the panel, Cheney managed debate for those arguing in favor of doing so, and Banks, who is not on the committee, managed debate for those arguing against.

After Banks’s opening statement, Cheney responded with a surprise.

“I would like to introduce into the record a number of letters to federal agencies dated Sept. 16, 2021, for example, signing his name as the ranking member of the committee he’s just informed the House he’s not on,” Cheney said.

One of the letters Cheney entered into the record, shared with the Washington Examiner, showed that Banks explained that he was not on the committee but identified himself as “ranking member” under his signature.

The news will almost certainly stoke tensions between the two parties, while also muddying the already-tainted reputation of the committee itself.
