Bottom Line: You’ll note that below I’ve made no pronouncement on the wisdom of enacting a “Trumpian agenda.” The jury’s still out on that. It’s a sure thing, though, that we the people need to know whether or not an agenda counter to the Democrats’ can be enacted at all. If not, that’s a grave problem indeed. Read that last well. And repeat it and repeat it and repeat it and repeat it again.
The Left’s Strategy: It’s simple. And the left have been open and forthright about it. They intend to deploy every possible delaying tactic until they have at least one branch of government back. This could show that, indeed, there can actually be no agenda enacted that goes counter to that of the left. It may already be too late.
The left — the Democrat Party — understand that if Republicans are united, then there’s little the Democrats can do to stop Trump from unraveling a great deal of the depredations that Obama brought about. However, there might be quite a lot that the left’s surrogates can do…
The left are hardly without weapons. They own the media, Hollywood, academia… Look for these “institutions” to pull out all the stops. Look for transparent propaganda to pour forth from them without cease.
In 2009, Republicans facing Obama and a Congress fully in control of the Democrats, had none of those extra weapons, and were unable to prevent much of the damage that Obama eventually did. The Democrats, though, don’t believe for a moment that they lack the ability to prevent the enactment of anything resembling a Trumpian agenda. They hope to:
- Peel “moderate” Republicans off and pit them against Conservatives
- Count on the big propaganda organs to galvanize the great unwashed masses to pour into the streets
- Paint anything the Republicans propose as cruel, heartless, mean-spirited
- Use the courts to bog down any large initiatives in endless litigation
If the Republicans oppose their usual lily-livered response to this onslaught, the Dems will succeed.
The one wild card? Trump himself and his tweets, flying serenely over the heads of the media straight to the American people.
You’ll note that I’ve made no pronouncement on the wisdom of enacting a “Trumpian agenda.” The jury’s still out on that. It’s a sure thing, though, that we the people need to know whether or not an agenda counter to the Democrats’ can be enacted at all. If not, that’s a grave problem indeed. Read that last well. And repeat it and repeat it and repeat it and repeat it again.
It’s a sure bet that if the Democrats are able to stop Trump completely, by bogging him down in the tar pits of litigation, bureaucracy and filibusters, then there’s little to offer hope that they can be prevented from taking over the government permanently. Remember, the Democrat Party leadership are nothing more than the public stooges of the power-mad American left.
