White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasts media for selective Russia coverage

While the legacy media is busily obsessing about tweets and their own paranoid conspiracy narratives about Russia defeating Hillary Clinton, Trump's very capable appointees are busy doing the people's work: downsizing and returning the federal government to its constitutional limits.

Go ahead, CNN: focus on the wrestling video. New York Times: continue your resistance by turning the entire paper into one massive editorial. Washington Post: become the Huffington Post.  While you're all busily engaging with your own hysterical narratives, Donald Trump's appointees are quietly implementing the agenda we elected him to implement, and you're too blind to notice.

That's what happens when you forget to go outside your building and report the news, instead staying inside inventing it.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasted the media for being "misleading" with their "false narrative" about Russian collusion with President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

"I think what the bigger question is, everybody wants to try to make this some story about misleading. The only thing I see misleading is a year's worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion and a phony scandal based on anonymous sources.

"And I think that is, if we're going to talk about misleading, that's the only thing misleading I see in this entire process.

"You guys are focused on a meeting that Don Jr. had, no consequence, when the Democrats actually colluded with a foreign government like Ukraine; the Democrat-linked firm Fusion GPS actually took money from the Russian government while it created the phony dossier that's been the basis for all of the Russia scandal fake news.

"If you want to talk further about our relationship with Russia, look no further than the Clintons.

"Bill Clinton was paid half a million dollars to give a speech to a Russian bank and was personally thanked by by [Vladimir] Putin for it. Hillary Clinton allowed one-fifth of America's uranium reserve to be sold to a Russian firm whose investors were Clinton Foundation donors, and the Clinton campaign chairman's brother lobbied against sanctions on Russia's largest bank and failed to report it.

"If you want to talk about somebody who's actually been tough on Russia, look at president Trump. He wants more fracking, more coal, more energy, a stronger military, a stronger defense. Those things aren't good for Russia.

"I think the distinctions are very clear and you guys want to create a narrative that just doesn't exist," Sanders said.

All the leftist stupidity is coming out now.  Truly despicable statements issuing from all sorts of self-styled progressive commentators and personalities.

Lack of personal responsibility, civility and class were well into their decline before this last election. What most fail to understand is that the coarseness American culture suffers from, especially in liberal precincts, closely parallels the rise of liberal moral relativism and the decline of religious faith in the last 50 years.

Principled behavior is a natural consequence of belief in you reap what you sow. The coin of freedom has another side, responsibility for your actions, or inaction, whatever the case may be.

For years the American electorate has had two choices: Democrats, the party of more big government; and Republicans, the party of slightly less more big government. The two parties interchanged control, but the country remained on the same path to excessive growth of the federal government, expansion of it outside of its Constitutional boundaries, and excessive debt funding failed government policies.

The Republican Party leadership was complicit in this expensive loss of our liberty because they became captured by Washington, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and the other centers of cultural elitism. They wanted to belong and get paid. They allowed the left and its lackeys in the legacy media to define the terms of every discussion.

Donald Trump does not act like this bipartisan elite thinks a President should act. He does not talk like they think a President should talk. THAT'S WHY WE ELECTED HIM!

Many progressives are apoplectic. I mean, walking around in tears, bemoaning the end of civilization, that sort of thing.  Some are out in the streets, burning Trump effigies as is done in Iran and other primitive 3rd world regions.  Some are openly tweeting for "presidential assassination".

Unbelievable.  It's good the election had this outcome, just to expose the stupidity, shallowness, and treachery of the progressive mind.

During the Obama administration's new progressive era, citizens and business somehow became the enemies of our federal government, which launched attacks on us and our rights verbally, legally, and in regulation. The net effect of this was to concentrate power and wealth in Washington and among the smug liberal elites who are certain they know what is best for all of us and that, in our ignorance, we should be forced to comply.

This is expressly not the intent of our limited federal government.

The voters rejected this agenda by voting for the Great Disruptor, Donald Trump. In truth, they would have done it sooner if not stymied by the Progressive narrative that voting against Obama was "racist." Okay, progressives, you got away with that one, but no more.

It's time for a major housecleaning and downsizing in Washington. Let's start today.

America does not want to be ruled by a smug, know-it-all progressive elite that seizes control of the federal government to force us to align with their false leftist narratives.

If Democrats want to be relevant again, they should try using the actual methods of science--assess what works and why, and advocate for more of it--instead of trying to twist and distort isolated facts to fit a predetermined ideological narrative. Progressive economics do not work. They have never worked.

Every twenty or thirty years, Americans forget how disastrous progressive governance is and allow themselves to be manipulated into electing radical leftists to office--Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama most recently.

Since progressive policies would never be accepted at face value, leftists are obliged to lie to us, to manipulate the media, and to use the force of the federal government to coerce compliance. Control over the mechanisms of government and a compliant media confuse Progressives into thinking that they are getting away with it.

The 2016 elections reminded them that the American people, whom they disparage and observe like zoo animals, are not stupid. Progressive government has been turned out of power for the next 20 or 30 years. Good riddance.

This leaves progressives threadbare and empty of ideas. They never had new ideas anyway, just tired old ones that didn't work. May they return to the center, so that we again have two parties that care about all Americans.

Democrats have no power. They will have to run in two years on the basis of what they have done in a Trump Presidency. They have two choices: obstruct, or be constructive.

They can say what they want to about working with Trump, but they're going to have a hard time accommodating themselves to what that means. They have spent the last 8 years running roughshod over the norms of governance, and Republicans--whom they see as worse enemies than Iran, North Korea, and Russia.

It says here that they will obstruct, complain, demonize, whine, criticize, hector, and try to manipulate the media and electorate to go along.
