My step-father’s dad was a professional magician.
One day when we were visiting, my brother and I went down into the basement where he kept all his magic stuff.
We were nosing around through his stuff when we found this small stand that he put his top hat on to make things disappear.
And we made a little discovery.
I won’t give it away, but when we learned the trick behind the magic, the magic stopped working on us.
Well, the same can be said for the Democrats.
Their bag of tricks never changes from one faux outrage to another.
And when you know their tricks, you become immune to their drama.
Yesterday, I needed to stay with my Mom while my Dad was away for the afternoon. And I got there just before Attorney General Sessions made his press announcement.
After I watched it, I went to Twitter because I already knew how the Democrats were going to respond.
And they didn’t disappoint.
It’s not because I’m prescient. And I’m not the Amazing Kreskin.
I just know their tricks.
Part of it is, I’ve been watching them carefully for the last couple years since Donald Trump announced his candidacy. And when it comes to how they respond to Trump, they pretty much stick to a formula.
1. Shock, outrage and emotional outpourings
2. Standard talking points using key words like “heartless,” “cruel,” and the requisite “we’re better than this.”
3. Lather, rinse, repeat.
It also helped that WikiLeaks up and revealed what goes on behind the scenes. And all of the Democrats tricks were laid out in those Podesta emails.
Sure, a lot of people claim that the Podesta emails contained no smoking guns.
But for me, they were a treasure trove on what tricks the Democrats use to play their game.
Do you think it is at all a coincidence that every single Democrat used the word “cruel” in describing the end of DACA?
No. It wasn’t.
They’ve known for quite some time that the Trump Administration was going to rescind this unconstitutional order.
And they took the time to prepare their talking points.
I guarantee you everyone was instructed to use the word “cruel” when responding.
Knowing the tricks behind the faux outrage makes it easy to see right through it.
And as result their faux outrage stops working.
I read through the statement President Trump released yesterday.
And his statement bears no resemblance to what the Democrats, in their hysterical, scenery-chewing response, claim has happened.
Nobody is “separating families.”
And nowhere in this statement did it say that President Trump plans to have these 800,000 so-called “Dreamers” rounded up and deported.
In fact, he reiterated what he has been saying all along.
Our enforcement priorities remain unchanged. We are focused on criminals, security threats, recent border-crossers, visa overstays, and repeat violators. I have advised the Department of Homeland Security that DACA recipients are not enforcement priorities unless they are criminals, are involved in criminal activity, or are members of a gang.
But from the way the Democrats are howling, you would think ICE had been given instructions to start kicking in doors and dragging these so-called “Dreamers” out of their homes.
Trust me. The Democrats know that the end of DACA bears no resemblance to their descriptions of it.
They know they’re lying.
Because this has nothing to do with their care or concern for so-called “Dreamers.”
The truth is, apart from wanting them legalized so they can vote, the Democrat Party doesn’t give a shit about them.
Maybe. But you know I’m right.
The end of DACA is just yet another opportunity for the Democrats to cry wolf – or, better put, cry Fascist.
And believe me, they are thrilled at the opportunity to chew the scenery and carry on like it’s Armageddon.
They believe they can exploit this to electoral victory.
And so they’re banging it out to the cheap seats thinking this will give them an edge in 2018.
Naturally, the mainstream news media will work hand-in-hand with them – using the same talking points and exhibiting the same level of hysteria.
But here’s the problem.
It won’t work.
We all know their tricks.
They’ve been setting their hair on fire over every little thing for the last nine months.
And there’s only so many times you can shriek “The sky is falling” before people stop paying attention to you.
We’ve become immune to their drama.
And what’s more, because the Democrats always push too hard and too far, they’ll just turn off voters who are sick and tired of their theatrics.
In the end, the Democrats will look even less capable of leading. And President Trump will look even more like a leader.
In other words, if the Democrats move the needle at all, it will move away from them.
Not only do these people no longer have any ideas when it comes to policies that matter to the American people.
They’ve run out of tricks to use to try and hoodwink us into thinking that they do.
We’ve seen it all before.
We know all their ploys.
And Americans have become immune.
