Democrats and their media cohorts continue to push big lie against Trump

Michael Goodwin:
No doubt you’ve heard a Democrat or two declare that President Trump is a “threat to our democracy.” Joe Biden used his campaign launch to up the ante, saying that the 2020 election is a “battle for the soul” of America and warning that if Trump gets a second term, “he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.”

Ho hum. The suggestion that the president is the personification of evil and is destroying all that makes America exceptional has become so routine that it’s easy to ignore it. In fact, it’s an ­extraordinary charge, even for our nasty, turbulent times.

More remarkable, the charge and related talking points continue to thrive on the left despite the lack of facts to support them. Indeed, special counsel Robert Mueller shredded the heart of the wildest accusations — that Trump conspired with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

So the collusion charge was a Big Lie, but it’s a lie that won’t die. A trip down memory lane shows how we got to this perilous place.

The third and final presidential debate, on Oct. 19, 2016, was notable primarily because Trump refused to say he would accept the election results, arguing they might be rigged against him.

“I will look at it at the time,” Trump said. “I will keep you in suspense.”

Hillary Clinton immediately declared herself shocked, saying: “That’s horrifying. He is denigrating — he is talking down our democracy. And I am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that position.”

Convinced Trump made a fatal error, she pressed the point to reporters afterward, saying “we’ve had hot, contested elections going back to the very beginning, but one of our hallmarks has always been that we accept the outcomes of our elections.”

America has “free and fair elections,” she continued. “Somebody wins and somebody loses. So what he said tonight is part of his whole effort to blame somebody else for his campaign.”

Hypocrisy alert! She became the person she warned us against.

Then and now, Dems count on the media to amplify their message, and all the usual suspects echoed Clinton after the debate. Smug ones predicted that Trump’s rigging remark would give her a landslide victory.
So Clinton has been consistent, but her argument has not aged well, to put it kindly. It turns out that while some Russian agents did try to sow discord and help Trump, she worked with other Russians to compile her phony dossier on him. Her team gave it to the FBI, which used it as an ­excuse to spy on Trump.

So his suspicions about the election were well founded. It was rigged against him.

The saving grace is that the Obama White House and its law-enforcement and intelligence leaders were no match for the constitutional system they tried to thwart. Their plot to make Clinton president failed.
Democrat campaigns appear to be based on a series of big lies and this one about the destruction of Democracy is one of those big lies. 

Other big lies used by the Democrats involve their claims that Trump and Republicans are racist and that they favor "White nationalists policies."  None of that is true but the Democrats need to push that lie to hang only black voters.  The good news is that some blacks are catching onto the lies.  Others see a positive impact from Trump policies which is lifting millions out of poverty and dependency even thou Democrats continue to ignore these changes of circumstances.
