The Solidarity Of Democrats’ Delusion Is About To Collapse

The Turnaround

At yesterday’s Thanksgiving table, fifteen adults present, there was not one word uttered about impeachment, Russia, Ukraine, and, most notably, a certain Golden Golem of Greatness, whose arrival at the center of American life three years ago kicked off a political hysteria not witnessed across this land since southern “fire eaters” lay siege to Fort Sumter.

I wonder if some great fatigue of the mind has set in among the class of people who follow the news and especially the tortured antics of Rep. Adam Schiff’s goat rodeo in the House intel Committee the past month. I wonder what the rest of congress is detecting among its constituents back home during this holiday hiatus. I suspect it is that same eerie absence of chatter I noticed, and what it may portend about the nation’s disposition toward reality.

The dead white man Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 – 1860) famously observed that “all truth passes through three stages: first, it is ridiculed; second, it is violently opposed; and third, it is accepted as self-evident.”

America has been stuck in stage two lo these thirty-six months since Mr. Trump shocked the system with his electoral victory over She-Whose-Turn-Was-Undoubted, inciting a paroxysm of rage, disbelief, and retribution that has made the Left side of the political transect ridiculous, and repeatedly, ignominiously so, as their fantasies about Russian “collusion” and sequential chimeras dissolve in official proceedings.

The astounding failure of Mr. Mueller’s report did nothing to dampen the violent derangement. There was no rethinking whatsoever about the terms-of-engagement in the Left’s war against the populist hobgoblin. The solidarity of delusion remained locked in place, leading to Mr. Schiff’s recent antics over his false “whistleblower” and the enfilade of diplomatic flak-catchers tasked to ward off any truthful inquiry into events in Ukraine.

But then, with the Thanksgiving shut-down, something began to turn. It was signaled especially in the Left’s chief disinformation organ, The New York Times, with a week-long salvo of lame stories aimed at defusing the Horowitz report, forthcoming on December 9. The Times stories were surely based on leaks from individuals cited in the IG’s report, who were given the opportunity to “review” the briefs against them prior to the coming release. The stories gave off an odor of panic and desperation that signaled a crumbling loss of conviction in the three-year narrative assault on the truth — namely, that the US Intel Community organized a coup to overthrow the improbable President Trump.

From this point forward, the facts of the actual story — many of them already in the public record, one way or another, and sedulously ignored by the news media — will be officially detailed by federal authorities outside the orbit of the coupsters, and finally beyond the coupsters’ control. The facts may include the uncomfortable truth that Mr. Mueller and his helpers were major players in the bad-faith exercises of the Intel Community against the occupant of the White House.

I’m not so sure that the Resistance can keep up the fight, since their enemy is reality as much as reality’s mere personification in Mr. Trump. The violent opposition Schopenhauer spoke of in his three-stage model was just procedural in this case, moving through the courts and committees and other organs of the state. I don’t think the Left can bring the fight to the streets. They don’t have it in them, not even the ANTIFA corps. The hard truths of perfidy and treachery in the upper ranks of government will rain down in the weeks ahead, and when they do, there’s an excellent chance that they will be greeted as self-evident. The Times, the WashPo and the cable news networks will have no choice but to report it all. My guess is that they will display a kind of breathlessly naïve wonder that such things are so. Most remarkably, they might just assert that they knew it all along — a final twitch of bad faith as the new paradigm locks into place.

I expect that we will see something else happen along with that: a loud repudiation of the Democratic Party itself, a recognition that it betrayed the mental health of the nation in its lawless and demented inquisitions. I expect that sentiment will extend to the party’s current crop of candidates for the White House, to the delusional proposals they push, and perhaps even to the larger ethos of the Wokester religion that has programmatically tried to destroy the common culture of this country — especially the idea that we have a duty to be on the side of truth.

    Your Comment*

    The Dimwitt Party has wasted millions of taxpayer funds for absolutely “nothing” for the last 3 years, do you think the “voter”, Democrats, Republicans, White, Latino, Black, men and women voters will continue to support a party that is “out of its everliven minds”? What have the Dems “done” for “any” American for the last 3 years, this is “NOT” the way to try and win the election in 2020, we have seen the tactics of the FBI, CIA, DOJ, Dept of State, and the “leftovers” from OBOZO who have worked to try and wreck President Trump and he needs to get 4 more years to replace the 3 “YOU” wasted plus another 4 in 2024 if he wants to serve!

    I believe President Trump has tried to do his best to Make America Great Again. Despite Congress. They are scared that he may drain the swamp. Make Congress let the people vote for their pay raise no let them just give themselves raises. Have them submit travel vouchers to the finance committee for reimbursement which they can refuse government spending. Have term limits set just like the President. Smaller war chests, less favors owed. This will scare these Senators and Congressman from becoming MOLLIONAIRES ON THE GOVERNMENT DIME.

    Excellently put. It is in the Bible that Trump would become our leader. Dems and all Left leaners cannot fight that. God’s behind the scenes plans always become a reality. I cannot wait for all their demagogery to become known to all Americans AND before the 2020 election.

    I agree with everything previously stated. What I would like see is have the Democrats personally reimburse us taxpayers for all the money they have wasted over the years.
    It’s easy to throw money around when its not yours!
    Shame on them.

    I do not share Mr. Dalton’s optimism. The illusions being forced on the US public, especially by the biased propaganda outlets including the Times, the ‘news’ networks, and all of the lame-stream press here, in the UK, and worldwide, won’t fade away with the publication of the truth. It is my guess that these former news outlets will bury the information, surround it with more lies and slanders, and make a great deal of noise to drown it out. After all, if they don’t print and broadcast it, it won’t exist (if a tree falls in the forest…). They have too much invested in the lies, slanders, and criminal behavior of ‘the swamp,’ to let the truth out in any but a perfunctory manner.

    Thanks to the machinations of our jihadist-in-chief, and his total hijacking of what was once the liberal party in the US, the Democratic Party of yesteryear is a memory, one totally forgotten by the vast majority of its current members. It has accomplished absolutely nothing since seizing control of the House Of Representatives, because, with all their talk of progressivism, they have but three goals:

    Get Trump
    Get Israel
    Get Jews

    That is their only focus, those are their only goals. And the charlatans of the lame-stream press are fully invested in the left-wing fascism that totally engulfs the Democratic Party today. In 1992, Clinton was elected president. The right-wing jackals yapped at his heels from then until he left office in 2001. The left-wing jackals, just as their right-wing predecessors, have no positive agenda, and nothing better to do than to continue yapping at Trump’s heels until he leaves office.

    Democrats have birth to the idea that all of us are to be controlled by their power, hungry,
    self edification, pompous, arrogance and greed
    of $ , might just see their heads rolling once their 3 ring circus act will be over when the
    reports are an ounce on Dec. 9, 2019. I would suggest that the Fed. Judges sitting on the bench that their seats are not the Supreme
    Court bench. You guys have great canines to
    challenge the President given right by Congress, to make decisions on how to run this
    country. Such a stupid act and good for you to wake us citizens of this country. You put illigal
    immigrants before the citizens. You are wrong!

    !! The sheer premeditated GALL and “psychotic break with reality” that we have witnessed with the ”Demon-ocrats“ WAS and IS too unbelievable to think could happen in America!

    I am within 6 months of Trump’s age. I have lived a long great life. I came from a one cow and 3 pig farm in E. TN, to a US Navy Vet, an electronics technician, a college graduate, computer software programming, and careers that took me to 5 great companies! Three of which I had 401k’s and retirement benefits! I was blessed by God to make an honest life with a great wife for 47 yrs, two successful sons and grandchildren!

    The government should operate like good private companies. They survive and succeed on good products, services and good people.

    The Dems have wasted valuable time and obstructed governess for 3 years! IT DEMS HAVE NOT HELPED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THESE LAST THREE YEARS. TOTALLY USELESS DEM-ONS!!
    And, I used to be one many, many years ago!! They don’t deserve to survive as party!!
