The Left’s Shifting Narrative

In Foreign Policy, Front Page, National Security, World News by Allen WestLeave a Comment

Hey, guess what we learned about Sunday morning? Yes, do you remember? Some of you may not because the progressive socialist left and their media accomplices are doing everything possible to ensure you do not. On Sunday morning, the Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces, President Donald Trump, informed us that the Number One wanted man in the world, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead.

Immediately, the decision from the left was to deflect, shift the narrative and find some fault. Never mind that this was a most daring, audacious, bold, and complex raid operation carried out by our premier counter-terrorism unit, Special Operations Detachment-Delta, “Delta Force.” Nope, the left instantly focused on the harsh language used by President Trump. There are leftists who even insinuated that the Islamic jihadists will be emboldened, and increase recruiting because of Trump’s description of Baghdadi. Hey, message to the stuck on stupid crowd: they hate us, “kind language” or not.

Speaking of which, has anyone heard from Islamist sympathizer Rep. Rashida Tlaib? Heck, heard anything from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Ayanna Pressley? Nah, just crickets, I suppose that they truly wish Baghdadi were still alive, based upon their silence.

Imagine if Republicans had reacted the same way to the announcement by President Obama of the killing of Osama bin Laden? Yes, you get my point. The left has a deranged obsession with President Trump because he won the presidency.

At this time, the left is not willing to wait for an election in November 2020; they are intent on removing the duly elected President of these United States of America over a phone call. Yes, a phone call, now transcribed to a transcript that we have all had the chance to read.

It is abjectly appalling, utterly disgusting, that the progressive socialist left — that includes their leftist pundits, talking heads, and media outlets — have all joined in to undermine this impeccable military operation . . . one which will be studied for years to come. Instead, their focus is to shift the narrative and keep up their absurd charade called impeachment.

If anyone had booed @BarackObama on the day he announced the death of Osama bin Laden there would have been an outrage. #tcot #alBaghdadi @POTUS @realDonaldTrump Click To Tweet

As reported by Fox News:

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday the House will vote this week on a resolution to formalize — and establish the parameters — of the Trump impeachment inquiry. In a letter sent to Democratic House lawmakers, Pelosi, D-Calif., said the resolution “affirms the ongoing, existing investigation” and “establishes the procedure” for future investigative steps. “We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives,” Pelosi said.

Fox News has learned the vote will take place Thursday on the House floor. It is not an actual article of impeachment, but rather a resolution that sets process ground rules.

The White House argued Monday that the move proves Democrats have been conducting an “unauthorized” inquiry. “We won’t be able to comment fully until we see the actual text, but Speaker Pelosi is finally admitting what the rest of America already knew – that Democrats were conducting an unauthorized impeachment proceeding, refusing to give the President due process, and their secret, shady, closed-door depositions are completely and irreversibly illegitimate,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.”

So, yes, the immediate question one has to ask, what has the Democrat (socialist) Party been doing up to this point? It would appear, according to what Nancy Pelosi just admitted to, indeed, they were holding a secret inquisition led by a deranged, delusional liar named Adam Schiff.

The American people — note that does not include leftist sycophants — knew that this was wrong. Yet, this is the type of “kangaroo court” proceedings that we have become accustomed to by the progressive socialist left . . . secret courts, secret hearings, treacherous chicanery. Do we really want these people in power?

One would believe that this news would dominate this week's narrative. However, the propagandists of the left have another focus and they have sent out their talking points to their political officers and kommissars for implementation. Click To Tweet

But, what has to really unnerve, and anger, the American people — leftist sycophants not included — is the devious objective to shift the narrative from the successful operation against ISIS. One would believe that this news would dominate this week’s narrative. However, the propagandists of the left have another focus and they have sent out their talking points to their political officers and kommissars for implementation.

I, for one, am disgusted by the blatant attempt at public manipulation. As a retired soldier, it is disrespectful and highly dismissive to disregard the men and combat K-9s who risked their lives this past weekend. It is disrespectful to the Commander-in-Chief. Who among us was not perplexed at the boos from the crowd Sunday at Game Five of the World Series in Washington, DC when it was announced that the President was in attendance? If anyone had booed Barack Obama on the day he announced the death of Osama bin Laden there would have been an outrage.

Again, we have come to recognize the abhorrent, despicable behavior of the progressive socialist left who could not even celebrate a great American military operation.

The left is digging themselves into a very deep hole. They speak within their own very closed echo chambers and do not realize that we -- true Americans -- are paying attention. Click To Tweet

My assessment? The left is digging themselves into a very deep hole. They speak within their own very closed echo chambers and do not realize that we — true Americans — are paying attention. They are setting themselves up for a horrific, and well deserved, defeat next November. Just as in 2016, they will not get the memo as to why they lost. Their hatred will of America will burn deeper, and they will continue to be defeated.

I will see to that here in Texas.
