The past four years have been a constant loop of the same basic chain of events: President Trump does something historic to help the American people, the media finds a way to lambast him for it, and the Democrats immediately find a way to take the attention away from his (and all of ours, really) achievements via lawfare (using the legal system to attack or tie-up efforts), their media lapdogs or just plain misdirection.
But there’s a subset of the Democrat’s action plan that is even more nefarious, and would be extremely damaging if we had a President who wasn’t so strongly supported and so far ahead of them in strategic planning: the last-minute, perfectly-timed “gotcha.”
Let’s skip the recently uncovered evidence that the Obama administration was using illegal unmasking and surveillance to spy on all conservative candidates of the 2016 presidential race, and instead jump right into the timeline with the Russian collusion hoax itself.
Thanks to help from John McCain (who many with any memory will remember was hit with alarmingly similar Russian collusion claims (hoax) during his own run for the presidency), all of the major legacy (fake news) media outlets had their own copies of the Christopher Steele (now completely disproven, even by the single source he used to write it) dossier long before it was published.
But aside from being unable to verify as much as a single claim in the Steele dossier (because we all know the truth isn’t getting in the way of our media and a narrative), they lacked a hook, a reason to publish the unverified and now proven false allegations it contained.
With perfect timing, as if written in a movie script, James Comey briefed President Trump on the existence of the dossier and voila, the media suddenly had a reason to publish his false claims.
Perhaps more interesting is that none of the media planned on publishing in its entirety, with the legacy media outlets having a plan to “drip” the dossier out in sections to keep the public interested.
Thankfully Buzzfeed, an outlet staffed by gender studies, diversity philosophy and pre-war Russian literature majors with no other marketable skills, decided to publish the dossier in its entirety, allowing Americans with any semblance of discernment to see the hoax for what it was.
Were we really supposed to believe that a well-known germaphobe had allowed Russian prostitutes to pee on him?
The next perfectly-timed hoax we should look into was the Ukraine hoax which, ultimately, led to a sham-impeachment trial.
Did anyone else pay attention to the point that immediately after President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian President, there was a complaint filed with the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG).
Prior to this impeachment hoax, a complaint to the ICIG had to include first-hand knowledge, meaning the person filing the complaint had to have witnessed the action.
But, in a perfect sense of timing (irony noted), just before it was filed those regulations were changed to allow anyone to file a complaint, regardless of whether the action was gained from first-hand knowledge or rumors.
In the end we found the latter to be true as the entire complaint, filed after a perfectly-timed change in regulations, was wholly inaccurate as to the topics of the call.
Another set of perfect timing (for nefarious political operatives) was during the Justice Kavanaugh confirmation debacle.
When it became clear that Justice Kavanaugh was on his way to being confirmed by the Senate, Dianne “ChiFi” Feinstein (who, let’s not forget had a Chinese spy in her employ for 20 years yet has never had to answer questions about it), brought up a set of serious allegations against Justice Kavanaugh.
When the full story was revealed, it became clear that ChiFi had been given these allegations months previously, but had decided to wait until, you guessed it, the timing was perfect to drop a bomb on the process.
Those allegations were enough to derail the entire confirmation, and in yet another sense of perfect timing the Democrats were able to convince the public that the FBI should investigate, despite the allegations having been decades old, beyond their jurisdiction and the statute of limitations.
But, again with perfect (political) timing, women began to come out of the woodwork with decades-old allegations, each becoming crazier and more unbelievable than the last, as soon as the investigation was handed off to the FBI.
The media wants you to forget or completely wash over this fact, but the majority of these women have retracted their statements as lies meant to enact a political end, or have been completely disproven as impossible.
But the timing of when they happened remains the same.
In our latest sense of ironic “perfect timing,” Nancy Pelosi decided on Sunday to follow Rahm Emanuel’s mantra of, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”
After shutting most of the US economy down for a virus that hardly affects anyone under 50 years old, there was a bi-partisan bill being crafted to create a stimulus package, asked for by President Trump, to help those American companies and, by proxy, their workers who have been affected by the shutdown.
Chuck Schumer had himself made media appearances praising the bi-partisan work on the deal as it progressed. But, again with perfect (ironic) timing, Nancy Pelosi flew into DC on her broomstick at the last moment, just before the bill was voted on and threw a monkey wrench in the mix.
She ordered every Democrat to vote no, telling the public that, “the House would come up with its own bill.”
When the reality of her bill was brought to light, it shone a light on the absolute and disgustingly low levels she and her Democrats will stoop to in order to win political points.
1,400 pages long and laden with hundreds of millions of dollars of pork spending towards her “social justice” pet programs without a shred of relation to helping American workers affected by this shutdown, it was a low-tide marker for just how low they can go.
But she understands timing, and believed that she had America and her representatives between a rock and a hard place – a place that she’s put us often over the past four years.
She finally capitulated on Tuesday morning, but only after social media had erupted with fury once the specifics of her version of the bill had been made public. She wasted 48 hours of valuable time in a crisis that could have gone to helping small businesses and American workers, instead using that time to push programs that she knew she couldn’t get through the legislative, constitutionally required process.
The MSM, taking their orders from their masters in the DNC, would like you to view each of these instances highlighted above in isolation, without ever looking at the greater picture and understanding that this is their strategy, every time.
Every time one of these instances come up, the Democrats act like children when parents ask how something in the house was broken.
If you have small children, you’re very familiar with the little shrugged shoulders, scrunched face, pointing of fingers and attempting to shirk responsibility and blame another at the same time.
If you don’t understand, by this point, that there is no such thing as perfect timing or coincidence in politics, then perhaps you never will, no matter how much the Democrats and their media lapdogs try to pass each occasion off as nothing more than that.
Because the media has been willing to deflect blame and redirect the attention of the American populace every time the Democrats try to pretend that one of their devious ploys is sheer coincidence and perfect timing, they’ve so far been able to get away with it without having their feet held to the fire on account of their actions.
But make no mistake. Each of the situations outlined above was something carefully planned and executed as a ploy to maintain their stranglehold of power, with no care or second thought as to how many lives or how much of our country they destroy.
Which is exactly why we as Americans can never allow them to a hold or maintain power over anything again.
