"Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States.
Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

The 15 minutes of fame are about up for Daniels and Hogg
The phrase "everyone will be world-famous
for 15 minutes" is credited to either Andy Warhohl or his photographer, Nat
Finkelstein (1966 or 1968). Whoever said it first, it has indeed
turned out to be true when it comes to persons who are suddenly slingshot into
a media firestorm for one reason or another. Soon enough, our
twenty-four-hour news cycle moves on to the next cultural or political
phenomenon, whether it is legitimate or entirely fake.
We forget these people the minute
they disappear from our television or internet screens. We will
quickly forget Stormy Daniels and David Hogg, too, and the sooner, the
better. Let the next firestorm begin! This one began to
stink a few weeks ago.
The left in America increasingly
swaddles itself in bubble wrap. They, these progressives, do not
intend to let the values of mainstream Americans interfere with their agenda to
transform our nation. When an event like the school shooting in
Parkland occurs, they are quick to leap into action. They know
within minutes whom to blame, whom to catapult into the media spotlight, where
to get the money to fund whatever campaign they spring into action to
mount. Like the devout students of Saul Alinsky they are, they know
how to capitalize on a crime and misery.
Clearly, the leftist media believed
that as the Russia collusion meme fell apart, they could take Trump out with a
porn star. Is she really a star? Who knows? No
one cares except the powers that be at CNN. The Access Hollywood
tape from years ago did not hurt Trump one bit, but somehow, in their dreams, a
one-night stand twelve years ago with the porn actress will do the trick.
For weeks, CNN and MSNBC have gone
all in on this stupid story. Their reporting on Benghazi was nothing
compared to their coverage of this particular brief encounter. They
have ignored entirely the volumes of proof that the Clinton campaign, the DNC,
the media, the FBI, and the CIA colluded in a wholly illegal, unconstitutional way
to take Trump down and out both before and after the election. They
don't want to know about that.
As Trevor Thomas wrote, "[o]f course
children prefer liberalism." They stick their fingers in their
ears when facts they don't like might be become audible. Their
fingers are still in their ears.
The loathsome David Hogg and the
pitiful Stormy Daniels are each sad commentaries on our 15-minutes-of fame
culture. The saddest aspect of their brushes with celebrity is their
own apparent belief that these events are meaningful. They are not –
not one bit. They are both this month's media instruments of rage
and ratings. Nothing Hogg has to say is based on truth or
facts. Whatever is true or not true re: Daniels's accusations is of
no interest to anyone but voyeurs like Anderson Cooper.
Both Hogg and Daniels are about to be
old news. Sooner or later, the left and the media will realize that
these two minions are doing more harm than good to their anti-Trump
agenda. The president's approval ratings have gone up over the past
few weeks, and donations to the NRA have notably increased during CNN's intense
focus on Hogg and Daniels. Uh-oh.
The left has miscalculated
badly. Leftists have indeed unmasked themselves in the
misguided belief that the rest of us are on board with gun confiscation, open
borders, sanctuary cities, amnesty for millions of illegals, and the notion
that Trump could be brought down by the revelation of a one-night stand years
ago. They could not be more wrong. These are the folks
who found nothing wrong with Bill Clinton's abusive exploits in the Oval
Office. As usual, the media in crowd assumes that the rest of us are
uninformed idiots who remember nothing of their hardened defense of Clinton's
many crimes against women and Hillary's complicity in those crimes.
Trump was elected to shake up the
usual order of things, and the Democrats and their media partners will never
forgive him for winning to do just that. They will continue to
wallow in the gutter in search of mud in which to drown him, but they are only
drowning themselves with 15-minute anti-Trumper after 15-minute anti-Trumper in
hopes that the Mueller persecution will lead to Trump's downfall. It
