Today’s title comes from the famous line in “A Few Good Men.” Colonel Nathan R. Jessup - Jack Nicholson - when cross examined by Lt. Daniel Cafffey - Tom Cruise - aggressively told that the truth was demanded, that it was entitled. Col. Jessup’s classic rebuttal is of course the stuff of Hollywood legend, especially when revealed to be an ad lib by actor Nicholson. I think of the line now, as the Left wing Democrats… (Is there another kind ?) ...descend into madness over the 2016 Presidential election.
Aided and abetted by dishonest, partisan media allies, the Democrats are just unable to handle the truth of a Trump victory. It is a symptom of a childish mentality, conduct unbecoming a major party. As a recent blogger noted, the Democrats have not been this upset since the Republicans freed all of their slaves. Allergic though Democrats may be, the truth is Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States. Get over yourselves and in the interest of the Country, move on.
It is as if the partisans expect Steve Harvey to come on stage, like he did at the Miss Universe pageant, and say that he read the results wrong, that Hillary really did win. How else to explain such obsessive, self-consumed behavior. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in the Left’s uproar over the so called Russian hacking. An examination shows once again…they CANNOT HANDLE THE TRUTH!
Clinton lost because she was conceited, condescending and crooked. Case closed. The apparent Russian hacking of the Democrat emails did nothing but reveal the truth of the shady deals going on between the Democrat establishment and the Clinton campaign. E-mails show that the TRUTH was that Bernie Sanders was screwed by the Democrat National Committee; e-mails show that CNN, a news organization moderating the candidates’ debate, was funneling questions to the Clinton campaign; they show that the Clinton campaign was dishonest to the core, and intended to cheat, lie and steal its way to victory. In summary, the hacked e-mails demonstrated that the Clinton campaign was without an ounce of moral fiber, and would do anything to win the White House. Duh? Is there anybody in America who did not already know that?
The hacked e-mails revealed nothing new, only confirmed old news. As such, to suggest that they had ANY effect on the election outcome is ludicrous. It is one desperate effort after another, all designed to shield the glaring, but nevertheless, absolute truth – the 2016 election was fair and above all, legitimate. The guttural reaction to the Trump victory is unprecedented in recent American history. Conservatives and patriots were dismayed and appalled first by the election and then the reelection of Mr. Obama, but for a host of reasons, stayed within the boundaries of civic pride and basic decorum. Why the same self-imposed restrictions are not applied to the Trump haters, is unknown. It certainly shows the fundamental weakness of liberal ideology, as it can only destroy and not build.
Whether filing for recounts that admittedly have no chance of success, blaming an FBI Director who you already conceded did not change the dynamics, or claiming in vain that the foreign interference rigged the election outcome, the Clinton ilk cannot accept reality. They are like a football team, heavy favorites in the Super Bowl, clinging to a small lead. Ball on the 2-yard line. Do not run the ball, pass it. Interception... Touchdown... Game over... Crushing upset defeat. Immediately screaming: Refs were wrong; they were off sides, they clipped. Every excuse, but the TRUTH. They just got beat.
Facts are enemy of the Trump haters. FACT - the Russians did not write the e-mails in question; the Clinton campaign did. However, finding out how the Russians could so easily and frequently side step American cyber security in the Obama years indeed should be the subject of Congressional inquiry. FACT - the Russians did not extend the middle finger to laid off coal miners, steel workers and construction workers. Madame Hillary did, as she proudly proclaimed the shutdown of coal mines in West Virginia, signaling her transparent anti-worker attitude. FACT - it was not the Russians who referred to 65 million Trump supporters as “Deplorables.” The truth is harsh; the truth is unpleasant… and THEY CANNOT HANDLE THE TRUTH.
We are in the end, all Americans. We need to pull together. The guerilla tactics of the left need to cease. We can “Make America Great Again” for all Americans. It is ultimately up to us. Be not afraid.
