We’re Winning, They’re Losing, Here’s Why

Power is shifting away from the liberal media and the left-wing popular culture

by Craig Shirley and Andrew Shirley | Updated 18 Oct 2017 at 7:31 AM

 

Donald Trump’s presidential victory broke many things. It broke the illusion of the infallible statisticians. It broke the two most prominent political dynasties in America by defeating both Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton.

 

It broke the very unspoken maxims of decorum thought necessary to become president. It may even break his own party (it’s already changed it). But of all the things that it broke, none has been more remarkable or resounding than the shattering of modern liberalism. It’s not just his win, but the new culture it has created.

 

Marsha Blackburn’s victory over Twitter is significant. A principled conservative stood her ground and bludgeoned a liberal corporation into submission. Both MSNBC and CNN are scraping the bottom of the barrel in terms of viewers, many of whom speak in grunts and obscene gestures rather than declarative sentences, as liberal writer Lionel Trilling once penned about conservatives.

 

The stock market, which tried for eight years to commit suicide under Obama, is now roaring ahead, adding billions to Americans portfolios and retirement plans, just as it used to under Ronald Reagan. This alone should qualify Trump for a Nobel Prize in Economics for making future life more comfortable for millions of Americans. Compassionate conservative indeed.

 

In the 1980s under Reagan, a phrase was coined: "Everything that is supposed to be going up is going up and everything that is supposed to be going down is going down." Once again, that phrase is resonating. Meanwhile, power is shifting from the corrupt liberal media to the ethical conservative media. Ask yourself, if you got simultaneous phone calls from Mark Levin and Dan Balz, the liberal reporter for The Washington Post, whose call would you take first?

 

Indeed, all of the mainstream has taken a hit. Ask yourself, when was the last time you watched network news? You can't even name the newsreaders, can you? In the old days, they rolled off your tongue; Walter Cronkite, John Chancellor and Peter Jennings, or David Brinkley. Meanwhile, Fox, OAN, Newsmax and Sinclair continue to gobble up more and more of news consumers' time.

Books? Talk radio? Forget it.

 

Conservative books and conservative talk continue to dominate the intellectual marketplace. It used to be a truism that a countervailing force existed in American culture and politics. That is, when Democrats dominated national politics, conservative thought emerged, and when Republicans dominated national politics, liberal thought emerged. No longer. Now Republicans dominate national politics and the national discourse.

 

Today, the liberal universities that once called for "free expression" and "peace" across the country now call for censoring "hurtful speech" and are violently attacking speakers for saying things they don't agree with. The students who once resolutely fought George Bush on his pre-emptive war against Iraq are now attacking and silencing dissenters in the name of "pre-emptive" self-defense. It appears they've taken the "liber" out of liberalism.

 

As a result, higher education has been exposed as an expensive clown show, a gathering of ignorant fools who teach political correctness, but nothing else correctly. Enrollment is dropping across the board, and donations have been drying up. Meanwhile, enrollment at respectable colleges such as Hillsdale and Liberty is skyrocketing.

 

Opposition to abortion is growing and has been for years, especially among the young. Washington, which was once seen as a Golden City and perfect city during the liberal halcyon days of the New Deal and Great Society, is now seen as a corrupt cesspool of human garbage by the American people. So too are liberal corporations such as Facebook and Amazon, Facebook for a lack of ethics and Amazon for antitrust violations.

 

In its ideal most romantic and principled state, liberals once fought the constraints of a society that dictated what a man could be or what a country could be. Their thesis was to argue down every institution of society that "imposed" itself on the people because the resulting freedom of expression, equality, justice, and thought would lead to greater ideas and ideals that will make for a better nation and planet. Now, the militant Left wants to impose its will on everything, including forcing Americans to admit that two plus two equals five.

 

In no way did the reality of liberalism consistently live up to those lofty ambitions, though. For example, the constant rationalization and romanticizing of brutalist states like the Soviet Union, Cuba, Maoist China, and North Vietnam undermined its very pillars, but the core beliefs still brought cohesion to seemingly diverse groups. That core's last hurrah was a halfhearted rally behind Hillary Clinton, not the first choice of many but she was the candidate, and the various progressive elements did their best to mobilize. When she collapsed, the core of liberalism collapsed with her.

 

Hillary's loss shook the party from an extended stay in a fantasy land, where the loss of over a thousand legislative seats over the previous eight years were all peripheral concerns and short-term setbacks to the inevitable liberal hegemony. When the party woke from that fantasy, they found a base in outright revolt and a leadership pool all but depleted.

 

The best it could do was to elect as Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez, a foul-mouthed man too moderate for liberals and too liberal for moderates. Since then the DNC has lost every national special election this year despite promises of a new party. The truth is that there is no recognized leadership coming from the DNC, and even if there were, people have stopped listening. Instead they embraced, seemingly, new tactics and seek victory through less ... diplomatic means.

 

Back in July, psychologist Lisa Barrett asserted that speech is tantamount to violence. In her own words: "If words can cause stress, and if prolonged stress can cause physical harm, then it seems that speech — at least certain types of speech — can be a form of violence."

 

On the heels of this liberal professor, Mark Bray wrote the "Antifa Handbook," a hagiography of "Antifa" which celebrates violence against anyone that Antifa defines as Fascist. The author nakedly states that this group is no longer a liberal group because it has "pre-emptively shut down fascist organizing efforts" with violence. These two deeply disturbed mentalities have synthesized on college campuses and, channeled through a rationalized media, have produced a perfect storm of violence and hatred.

Change does not come quickly or on a timetable. Change, such as abolition or universal suffrage, comes in fits and starts, but it is clear that the peak days for governmental American liberalism were the 1930s — for cultural liberalism, the 1960s — both ages ago. They are dying, slowly, inexorably, and America has been inexorably moving to the right since then.

 

Finally, happiness. Happiness and contentment were not introduced to national politics by Reagan, but the Republicans may have perfected it. The militant Left — Antifa — even dress in black. Let's face it, the Left and modern liberalism are a downer. A central feature of American conservatism is happiness and confidence in the future.

 

The reality is that if there was a time where the ideals of liberalism were the true aim of the activist Left, that time is long past. Classical liberalism as an ideology — and if the trend continues — will be remembered as just another archaic philosophy consigned to history classes; that is, if the militant Left will permit it to be taught. Otherwise, like Soviet communism, it too will join the ash heap of history.

Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein did the same thing. Why did anyone vote for Trump?

Honored Social Butterfly

Since the loss they have so consumed themselves with anti-Trumpism that as Hasan Minhaj hilariously pointed out when watching CNN, "It feels like I'm watching CNN ... watch the news." Even once reputable pundits and journalists debase themselves by engaging in contests to see who can find the freshest way to call Trump a dope/sexist/racist/dictator/rube.

 

But for all their grandstanding, against a man they describe as sexist, misogynist and evil, they sure showed deference to another powerful man who literally turned out be sexist, misogynist and evil.

 

Harvey Weinstein's history of serial rape was apparently the "worst-kept secret in Hollywood." The bastion of progress and progressive values — California — kept his open secret and actively buried it when it reared up in the past. Far from an anomaly, he joins the ranks of Roman Polanski and Terry Richardson as liberal "woke" men who use their positions of power to rape women (yes, using power, access and influence as leverage over women to pressure them into sleeping with you is rape), and be granted passive clemency, because they hate conservatives.

 

Notice in Weinstein's initial apology his intention to devote his "anger" to bringing down the NRA ... coincidentally right after the horrific shooting in Las Vegas. The message to the media was clear: "Give me a pass on this and I'll keep funding your causes." A naked bribe that initially seemed to work, until all hell broke loose.

 

Only when Weinstein was fired did progressive actors, late-night hosts, and opinion leaders resoundingly chastise him. Up until that point, those outlets were all but silent. When "Saturday Night Live" showrunner Lorne Michaels was pressed on why the show omitted discussion of Weinstein, he lamely said Weinstein was "a New Yorker" and that the show didn't go after New Yorkers ... though apparently Donald Trump didn't make the cut. Michaels came off as a shallow shill and a clown.

 Donald Trump and Harvey Weinsteis both did the same thing, and it was known or years. What we see in this thread is what the Russians taught the American Far Right leaders during the last few years. How to plant stories that are used to try and change the subject from what Trump does. The Russians get paid for it. Now do the Americans. Well we know the Trump Campaign manager who owed one of the Russians millions before the campaign owed zero after. Could this thread be one to take us away form the important subjects? Like how could any one vote and elect Harvey Weinstein President and then support him. Oh I am sorry I mean Donald Trump. Lets not allow these silly distraction subjects placed in here by the far right keep thinking people from talking about the real issues of the day. Change the silly subjects back to the real issues when ever we see these types of stories placed in here.

I agree, the Democrats are disorganized, lack leadership, and have no plan. But at least they're not destroying what's good about America, which is what Donald Trump is doing. The man is pathetic, a piece of trash, and a disgrace to the values we cherish.

 

His supporters not only support Trump's non-stop lies, non-stop insults, and dysfunctional policies,.they actually like what he does. Unbelievable!

LOL!!

 

You guys keep forgetting, we won the election.

 

The democrats lost and have been losing seats in government for the last 8 years.

 

Democrats have no plan, no leadership, and no vision for America beyond, “hate Trump”...

 

Keep it up!

Some Americans (Trump Supporters) have a very strange and pathetic definition of winning. The following has nothing to do with politics, it's about American values and decency.

 

They spend 7 days a week defending a President who's a pathological liar

They spend 7 days a week defending a President who disrespects our fallen soldiers

They spend 7 days a week defending a President who insults gold star parents

They spend 7 days a week defending a President who insults a war hero like John McCain

They spend 7 days a week defending a President who insults women

They spend 7 days a week defending a President who claims a federal judge is not qualified because his parents were born in Mexico

etc.

 

Why or how could any decent American stand behind and defend that piece of garbage currently living in the White House? Or maybe we should ask what's wrong the people who think this President represents American values?

That's all true, but it needs to be revised a bit. They only spend 3 1/2 days doing all you said, and the other 3 1/2 days screaming about NFL players disrespecting our troops & the flag. Cognitive dissonance that severe may be terminal.

Jim  no one here is negating the fact that Trump is the duly elected President. that is not an issue. 
The issue is, that perhaps his agenda is not what this country needs. I don't know if you heard  today  G.W.Bush  He   made a speech that perhaps you should have heard and listened carefully.. 
It reminded me of the Republican Party that I belonged.
We now have a President  and his agenda that continuously reminds me of a Reality TV show. ala Kardashian style.
Sorry, but I don't approve of his style or his hyperboles. 
And as far as being successful  as of now, Sorry, not even close.

There is nothing more difficult than trying to convince a person that cannot walk, that perhaps he will sometime in the future
We all tend to see what we want to see. and become blind in order not to have to deal with the fact that we may be mistaken.

Not being objective is a problem that many have. 
not having an open mind is also a problem that many have, and hot being able to see the good and the bad of a situation is as bad as being blind.

That is the problem Jim  his agenda and the implementation of that agenda is what is not really coming the way it was intended.
We are now on the verge of a nuclear war with North Korea. I don't think that anyone wanted that. 
Yes, we all want a health care system that would work for all and he says it would be better than ever and everytime he tweets, he makes it worse.
His tax reform, sorry, but it is not going to benefit me. It will some of my friends but not me.
What happened to infrastructure  not one word, The only thing that he continuously engages in, is in insulting others. blaming others, uttering hyperbole and his white house is in complete disarray.
He has a Republican Senate, a House and he can't get nothing pass, Perhaps if he would shut his mouth for a while, People would be able to work and do something.

Can't blame the Democrats, they don't exist, neither in the HOuse or Senate.
I am afraid that his biggest problem is that he has no idea on how to govern.

THAT is called Magical Thinking.  You're saying that prior to entering the highest office in the land, he was not aware of "many bad players".  Get a grip.  Being a 'bad player' is exactly what you like about him.  So what's not to know about his job description?

When he and the wife go on their Asian vacation soon and visit S.Korea, the cameras.media may catch him sending a hand signal to the North, like....a thumbs down? Won't that be great!  This is what you want more time for.  Yuck.

I would say yes, he is a total outsider and not a politician, its what I like most about him.

 

He is learning how to navigate unfriendly waters.  I predict him to be a quick study.

 

He beats the media everyday and I love it!!

 

Patience is a virtue, give him some time. At my age a year is just a blink of an eye and every new job I ever had took me a year or two to really get the lay of the land...
