Liberal’s Meltdown Since Trump Election

Posted by Steve Markowitz on December 18, 2016

Since Donald Trump’s election, the liberal Left has been in a downward spiral.  Immediately following the election the Left was in shock and acted in a respectable manner.  Hillary Clinton graciously conceded and suggested that the President-elect be given time to work on behalf of the People.  Barack Obama gracious statements included offering his office’s full cooperation in the transition of power.  In the five weeks since, the liberal Left has been in full attack mode.

First, Green Party candidate Jill Stein asked for vote recounts in various states even though she received few votes during election.  This effort had the tacit support of Hillary Clinton’s team.  When that effort failed, the Russian-backed computer issue took over.  While there is clear evidence of Russian hacking that was known before the election, the liberal Left attempted to create a nexus between that hacking and the election’s outcome.  However, there is absolutely no evidence to support this narrative.

The liberal Left is persistent.  Now, their attempt to nullify the will of the People is focused on convincing Electors to ignore the vote outcomes in their states.  While this effort will fail, the tactic nevertheless indicates a distain for the Democratic process and Constitution.  Prior to the election, when the Left was convinced of Hillary’s inevitable victory, their related focus was on whether Trump would accept the will of the People when he lost.  Their approach since demonstrates the Left’s hypocrisy.

The Left’s derangement since Trump’s election goes deeper than organized political associations.  This has been exhibited by some in the news media breaking down in tears, college professors giving students time off for election depression, and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio offering paid counseling for city workers depressed by Trump’s election.  Families were even coached prior to Thanksgiving on how to avoid acrimonious discussions during the holiday dinner.

This week Fox News host Tucker Carlson interviewed Kurt Eichenwald, senior Newsweek writer, concerning his reporting of Trump.  The exchange, included in the video below, is a poster child for Leftist derangement.

Carlson raised an Eichenwald tweet in which the Newsweek reporter indicated that Trump had a nervous breakdown and was “institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990.”  Carlson asked a yes or no question as to whether Trump was ever institutionalized.  Not only wouldn’t Eichenwald’s answer, but he is response devolved into derangement with the Newsweek senior writer seemingly losing connection with reality.

It is understandable that those who voted for Hillary Clinton are disappointed with the election.  However, given that Donald Trump was elected and will become the next President of the United States, the derangement has developed is irrational.  It also is undemocratic.

It is time for all Americans to get behind the President-elect and work with him to promote policies that are for the benefit of the Country.  Should the President-elect propose or promote policies not in keeping with one’s moral or political views, that would be the appropriate time for opposition.

Newsweek Compares Obama to Christ

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 20, 2013

The mainstream media has had a Leftist bent throughout modern history.  Over most of this time period they kept their bias in the closet.  While admitting Progressive views, they created the false façade that it did not interfere with reporting.  In recent years the media has given up on all pretense of unbiased reporting.

Barack Obama became the darling of the Leftist media even before his first election.  In Obama they found a fellow Progressive educated and raised amongst the same radicals revered in journalistic schools.  The media ignored Obama’s character flaws including his 20-year attendance in a racist church and that he had the weakest resume of any candidate to run for the presidency.

On Friday, one of the stodgy old names of the mainstream media, Newsweek, removed the last vestige of impartiality of the press.  Now an online magazine, it included the heading “The Second Coming” along with a photograph of Barack Obama looking much like Caesar in announcing Obama’s second term.  While the Left would rid America of established religions, it would replace them with a new one of Progressivism.

Modern history offers examples of leaders who either placed themselves or were placed in a higher stature than their countrymen’s.  Such leader worshiping generally does not end up well. What the Newsweek cover stands for should be of concern to all Americans.

Press Turning on Obama?

Posted by Steve Markowitz on August 20, 2012

The Blaze.com posted a series of Newsweek magazine covers from this year that included photos of Barack Obama.  The change may indicate a negative trend for the President and part of the mainstream media.  The first two covers from earlier in the year show the President in a positive light.  The most recent one with the headline “Why We Need a New President” goes in the opposite direction.

Newsweek’s change of heart is not likely related to a change in political persuasion by this Leftist publication.  More likely, they see the distinct possibility that their man who has so far failed in the White House may be thumped the upcoming election.  Like the President who threw the good Reverend Wright under the bus when he became a political liability, Newsweek is out to protect its image and advertising revenues.

Newsweek Cover Attempts to Canonizes Obama

Posted by Steve Markowitz on May 15, 2012

The mainstream media and its major news magazine allies seem to be losing it the closer we get to the presidential November election.  This Blog yesterday included the posting “Time Magazine Steps Over the Line with Breast-Feeding Photo about a photo of the narcissistic mom breast-feeding her three-year-old son in posed positions on Time’s cover.

Not to be outdone, Newsweek followed this week with a cover matching Time’s in outrageousness.  The photo pictures President Obama in a saintly pose with a halo above his head in the colors of the rainbow, a symbol of the gay and transgender movements.  For those not hip enough to understand the meanings of the colors, the cover included the heading “The First Gay President“.

The goal of an editor in choosing a cover for a magazine is first and foremost to help sell their rags.  Running a close second with the Leftist press is pursuing their Progressive agenda.  Certainly in this case, Newsweek will achieve the second goal.  Certainly no one can glean facts from this cover since Barack Obama is neither a saint nor gay.  So much for Newsweek being a serious news publication.

Newsweek Editor Says Obama Wasn’t Ready for the Job

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 28, 2011

The Leftist mainstream media has been one of Barack Obama’s biggest supporters since the early days of the presidential primaries.  Even after watching Obama polices fail, the media remained stoic in that support.  However, they are now beginning to jump ship, like others from Obama’s base.

On September 27, Newsweek editor Tina Brown was a guest on MSNBCs Moring Joe.  Brown is well known for her Leftist views of politics.  During an on air discussion as to whether New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is ready for national office, Brown indicated that Barack Obama was not saying: “Actually, I just hope he doesn’t, because in the end, you know, his tremendous misgivings, maybe he is right. I mean, we had this with Obama.  He wasn’t ready, it turns out, really.” [Emphasis added]

The video of Brown’s comments posted below is telling.  It is but another example of the Obama Administration in self-destruct mode.
