      An anonymous comment on the previous post brought up an interesting two-part question about whether the recent spate of phony sex-harassment allegations brought against high-people is ultimately aimed at President Trump; and whether or not this 'coup' would succeed. The answer to the first part is: probably so. The answer to the second part is: probably not. 

      Liberals typically spend so much time in historical revisionism that they fail to learn anything from actual history. Right off the bat, this strategy didn't work during the 2016 Elections---in fact, it probably backfired on the Clinton Campaign. The fact is that many men in urban areas who typically vote Democrat either abstained in 2016 or crossed over to support Trump. 

       Why was this so? Because, among themselves, a lot of men talk about women like Trump did; and these same men understood locker-room banter. No doubt they saw the proverbial handwriting on the wall as to what would happen to them if a candidate was elected who saw this kind of idle chatter as a criminal offense. Now as it happens, President Trump used to manage the Miss America Pageant. Does anybody seriously believe of men in such positions----surrounded by dozens of young models---that sexual thoughts never enter their minds? In other words, male voters, excluding homos and male feminists, are going to sympathize a lot more with Trump, just like they did in 2016.

        And there is historical precedent here. When Impeachment Charges were brought against President Clinton in the late 1990s, I well recall the very-Liberal pundit Eric Altmann predicting the very same failure for the same reason. "What did President Clinton actually do?" Altmann opined. "He cheated on his wife and lied about it when he got caught. How many American men have done the same thing? The Republican strategy will gain no traction with male voters."

         Altmann turned out to be right; and there's another reason why the coup against Trump will fail, brought up by another Liberal pundit recently. British journalist Glenn Greenwald---best known for publishing Edward Snowden's revelations---wrote a scathing critique of CNN last week after yet another fake-news story blew up in their faces. In fact, Greenwald has been (unsuccessfully) trying to warn the American Media for months that their over-saturation of anti-Trump reporting will sink their credibility. Here's what Greenwald wrote three days before Trump's Inauguration when the Golden Shower hoax went down in flames:

          "Demanding that evidence-free anonymous assertions be venerated as truth---despite emanating from the very precincts designed to propagandize and lie---is an assault on journalism, democracy, and basic human rationality...There is no bigger favor that Trump's opponents can do for him than attack him with such lowly, shabby, obvious shams and then recruiting large media outlets to lead the way. When it comes time to expose actual Trump corruption and criminality, who is going to believe that the people and institutions who have demonstrated that they are willing to endorse any assertion, no matter how factually baseless, who deploy any journalistic tactic no matter how unreliable, have any basic means of ensuring accuracy?"

           If what Greenwald says is true about hypothetical Trump misconduct, it's infinitely more true about outright falsehoods and exaggerated allegations of misconduct. In other words, the Corporate Media has lost so much credibility that---at this point---if Trump actually forcibly raped an 11 year-old in the White House in front of witnesses, nobody would believe the Media reports of it. It's the same situation as a person giving testimony at a trial---a witness' credibility is seriously impaired if they've been convicted of Perjury on numerous previous occasions. 

         We also probably add at this point that a President who's stood up to the NFL and won really hasn't much to fear from fake accusations. The Corporate Media tried pitting a national institution like the NFL once was against the President; and at this rate, the Trump Administration is liable to outlive them. 

         So to sum up: the Feminists and the anti-Trump scandalmongers have overplayed their hand. They're going to be preaching scandal to an echo-chamber of an audience already biased against Trump, but no further. The Left has plateaued politically and they're very much on the defensive now; even though they're trying to give the illusion of 'resistance'.

  1. Notice that no actual evidence of sexual harassment had been presented. Just accusations, and firings. No lawsuits have been filed, no police are involved, despite the media's claims.

    The media is definitely hyping this up, and it does look like Trump was the ultimate target.

    I haven't heard anything about Harvey Weinstein lately...
