The media’s impeachment crusade was never designed to remove President Trump from office. It was just another attempt by the media to portray him negatively while signaling to an already-exhausted electorate that they’ll keep tearing our country apart with their partisan hatred unless we choose someone else in 2020.
It’s important to start with an understanding of why the media hate and fear President Trump with such unhinged ferocity…
Let’s first define the swamp to make sure we’re on the same page: The swamp is Democrats, establishment Republicans, the politicized wing of the intelligence community, a majority of the “career” bureaucrats and other grifters (consultants, advisers, staffers, etc) who support them all, and the corporate media which serves as the marketing arm for the entire disgusting thing.
Second let’s recall why they all fear Trump so much: It’s because they exist in the swamp as parasites, feeding off We The People who serve as their primary host. And Trump promised to drain their swamp, which would starve most of them out and leave them with nothing. So for the swamp and its many monsters and parasites, stopping Trump isn’t a matter of principle. It’s a matter of survival.
As for impeachment, the media knew they’d never get a GOP Senate to actually remove Trump from office. Don’t get me wrong. They’d love to. But that was never their goal because they’re not stupid enough to think they’d ever pull it off.
And just like the vast majority of them never actually believed President Trump was a Russian spy who infiltrated the highest office in the world by stealing an election at the behest of Russian puppetmasters, they never truly believed he even committed an impeachable offense in his call with Ukraine President Zelensky. But they pretended to believe it because it means endless negative headlines for President Trump and anyone who supports or defends him.
The media’s goal is never to actually take Trump out with their outrage of the day. The goal is simply to make sure there is an outrage of the day, that it implies President Trump did something terribly wrong, and that every single one of us focus on nothing except that outrage.
It’s the media’s steadfast commitment to Trump’s political death by 1,000 cuts. And in this case those “cuts” are clouds they can put over Trump and any who dare to support or defend him, and “death” is the exhaustion of the electorate to endure any more Trump-related drama of the media’s making.
Granted, they’ll fail.
But the most critical thing we should be doing — pulling back the curtain to expose the media’s disgraceful attempt to meddle in our elections — is tremendously under-explored, under-appreciated, and under-communicated by the most powerful voices in conservative media and the GOP.
Instead, the vast majority of us are playing right into the media’s hand and doing exactly what they want us to do: reacting to and then endlessly talking about any new supposed outrage they can manufacture.
Today it’s Bolton claiming to have a smoking gun when in reality we know he’s just hyping his book with the stink of a horse that was beaten to death long ago.
Yesterday it was Trump on tape at a dinner with Lev Parnas saying he wanted to fire an Ambassador whom he had long known from multiple sources was working diligently to subvert his agenda.
The day before that it was your inability to recognize the brilliance of Adam Schiff’s cumulative 15-hour rant on the Senate floor.
The list goes on and on. Every day it’s some new “bombshell” or other focus that they fixate on to keep the story alive and keep us talking about it. And none of it matters. And none of it will actually change the outcome we all accurately predicted from the onset of this latest iteration in the ridiculous media/Democrat witch hunt: he won’t be impeached.
But as long as we’re talking about it, the media are winning and getting what they want.
“So why are you writing about it, smart guy?” some of you may be asking.
I’d like to think it’s obvious, but just to be clear: I’m trying to reveal the media’s true strategy. And I’m making the case to people more powerful and amplified than I am that we should stop focusing on the media’s clearly partisan news agenda. Not just on this story, but in perpetuity until they clean up their act — likely a generation or two from now. And I’ve written about it several times (here and here and here and here and here to name a few), and in truth am having a hard time writing about anything else these days…
We need the conservative grassroots, conservative media, and the GOP to all stand up and say out loud that we see what the media is doing, and we aren’t going to play along anymore. We are instead going to make the media the story and focus on their transgressions and partisan agenda. And until/unless we do that, it won’t change. Yes we’ll keep winning in the near term, but that’s only because we have Trump in office kicking butt and taking names for us. In 2025 we won’t have him anymore. And that’s something else I’ve written about: that we should be focused on who will replace him before the Mitt Romneys and Jonah Goldbergs and Ana Navarros of the world start trying to decide for us in service to the swamp they’ve all long called home.
But for now, the most important thing you can do is understand what the media is trying to do, and then stop helping them do it. While they try to convince viewers they’re wielding machetes and could strike a death blow at any moment, the truth is that it’s a death by 1,000 cuts strategy and every second we don’t recognize and call that out — it’s working.
