Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

Washington Lies In a Parallel Universe
The following article appeared in
Powerline on April 12th
In the real world, the Trump
administration is humming along. Its domestic policies are sensible and have
been remarkably successful in a short time. Abroad, the administration has
pursued American interests, again with considerable success. It has also made
progress, at least, at cleaning up the appalling messes left behind by Barack
Obama in Iran, Syria, Russia and North Korea. By any objective standard, the
Trump administration is, so far, a major improvement on its predecessor.
But our “news” organizations have
little interest in any of those topics. They are obsessed with tweets, with
ten-year-old liaisons, with non-existent collusion and with investigations of nothing
that apparently will never end. In their parallel world, Trump is such a
failure that he might as well quit and save the Democrats the trouble of
impeaching him. (For what? is a question that rarely seems to be asked.)
Take yesterday’s press briefing by
Sarah Sanders. As always, she began by describing the substantive work going on
in the White House that day. As always, the press corps ignored such mundane
topics and went straight to la-la land. Yesterday it was April Ryan who drove
the car into the ditch with this exchange:
Q Sarah, two questions.
The President said yesterday he was compliant; that he turned over a million
documents. If he was compliant with these investigation, why was there a search
SANDERS: This doesn’t
have anything to do with the President, and I would refer you to Michael Cohen
and his attorney. When it comes to matters of the Special Counsel and dealings
with the President, we’ve been fully cooperative.
Q Okay, and the next
question. With all of this turmoil, particularly this last week, has the
President at any time thought about stepping down before or now?
SANDERS: No. And I
think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question.
Q No, it’s not
ridiculous. It’s not ridiculous.
SANDERS: I gave you two
questions, April. We’re moving on.
Jordan, go ahead.
Q [By April Ryan] It is
a legitimate question. It’s not ridiculous.
Yes, April, it actually is a
ridiculous question, and one that no one ever asked of Barack Obama’s
spokesmen, despite his many low moments.
In a battle between reality and
fantasy, it usually is prudent to bet on reality. Here, I am not so sure. The
Democrats have a near-monopoly on the organs of perception, and they may be
able to bend a majority of Americans to their topsy-turvy view of things. We will
find out in November.
