When you sign up for “the resistance”, you sign up for a lifestyle – not an ethos.
You see, this carte blanche, anti-Trump ideology has no basis in logic or progression. It’s a cultural void. It’s an obtuse opposition that forsakes for the sake of forsaking. It is, only because it is.
That was wordy, and a bit melodramatic, but so are the antics of this “resistance” . They “resist” completely, no matter what. President Trump might be photographed putting Heinz ketchup on a hot dog, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would go out and buy a bottle of Hunt’s catsup simply for a photo op. That’s how pedantic and silly this has become.
And let’s not forget that, at least in the case of Congress, we pay these people.
When it comes to the mainstream media, however, the “resistance” is far more powerful. Their flippant dismissals of the leader of the free world are dangerous; far more so than those of the bloviated politicos on Capitol Hill. CNN and their ilk are the opinion of the masses, and they have repeatedly abused this power in order to tilt the table their direction.
Such is the case in the wake of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal as well, with NBC now revealing a bit of videotape that shows Donald Trump and the accused sex trafficker speaking at a party.
The footage shows two wealthy men laughing and pointing as they appear to discuss young women dancing at a party.
Today, one of the men is president of the United States. The other is in federal lockup awaiting a bail decision as he fights sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.
The November 1992 tape in the NBC archives shows Donald Trump partying with Jeffrey Epstein at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, now a private club, more than a decade before Epstein pleaded guilty to felony prostitution charges in Florida.
Of course, what’s missing in the headline from NBC is context.
Trump and Epstein surely knew each other, given their proximity in Florida and their social status. This is no revelation, yet the media leads the day with the videotape in hopes of somehow tying Trump to Epstein once again.
This latest spin of the Epstein saga cost some poor archive intern several hours of their day, and to what end? Another anti-Trump stunt by an already-outed “resistance” media?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
