Unchallenging Challenge

President Donald J. TrumpYesterday, President Trump announced that he plans to re-examine federal requirements that regulate the fuel efficiency of new cars and trucks. The Lamestream Enemedia instantly characterized it as the President’s moving forcefully against Obama-era environmental rules – because, of course, hysteria is their sole stock and trade and they know that the Warmists will go even further insane if properly goaded.

Vastly unsurprisingly, the truth of the matter is different than the MSM’s spin upon it. President Trump’s decision to re-evaluate Obama’s Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) emissions targets is a rather unchallenging challenge to the supposed centerpiece of Obama’s strategy to combat global warming. While it’s true that Obama’s EPA had promulgated regulations for cars and trucks that required auto manufacturers to reach a fleet-wide average of 54.5 mpg by 2025, it is also true that this rule was supposed to be reviewed in 2018 – but, in January – just seven days before Obama left office, the boy decided to cancel the review process. All that President Trump has promised to do is to reinstate the original, promised review of the CAFE standards that Obama imposed in 2012.

So really, like almost everything President Trump and his new administration has done so far, this is neither reason for Liberals and Progressives to scream, nor cause for Right Wing pundits and talking heads to crow and gloat.

Exceptional Hypocrisy

The current hysterical attempt by America’s domestic enemies – the Liberals and Progressives and their front agency, the Democrat Party – to overturn the 2016 elections or, if that won’t succeed, to catastrophically undermine the incoming POTUS, Donald Trump, is centered upon Russia “having hacked the election” and ” impacted the integrity of our election.”

Exceptional Hypocrisy Indeed
It Was The Russians!

For the sake of argument, let us ignore the lack of evidence that Russia as a state actor was involved in the hacking. Let us give them the hand-out of that postulate so that we can focus on something more important than their tantrums and straw-clutching.

This is exceptional hypocrisy on their part – truly, horrifically, and irredeemably exceptional hypocrisy.

They’re complaining and driving America towards civil war – and no! that’s not hyperbole – because the Russians supposedly cost Hillary the election. This is hypocritical in the extreme because both the Obama Regime and they, themselves have inserted themselves into other nation’s elections and governments in order to affect a regime change.

And no! In the context of the Obama Regime I’m not speaking of interfering in Israel’s recent election in an attempt to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. That just isn’t plausible given the timing involved – not unless the CIA is actually better than Mossad. On the other hand, these same Liberals and Progressives were funding that effort.

No. I’m speaking of Iran’s Green Revolution and the so-called Arab Spring, both cases of the Obama Regime using propaganda, the release of information or threat thereof, and direct financial efforts to effect the outcome of elections or to oust existing government. All of these efforts fully endorsed and aided by the Leftists who are now screaming because somebody supposedly did the same thing to us.

In all fairness, wouldn’t this be our chickens coming home to roost? Or are these Liberals and Progressives tacitly admitting that the US is supposed to by somehow exceptional and exempt from being on the receiving end of what we do to other nations?

Hysterical Paralysis

Liberal BSOD resulting in hysterical paralysis
Liberal Hysterical Paralysis

ROFLMAO – Yep! If a gorilla shot an alligator with an AR-15 to save a Muslim child while their transgender parent was in the bathroom it would “break the internet.” Not, mind you, because of the amount and intensity of the traffic, which is what is normally meant by that meme but due to utter, shocked, and panicked silence that would ensue as the Liberal and Progressive SJWs went into hysterical paralysis due to their not knowing who or what to side with.

The intersectional conflict that this would generate within the so-called minds of these ever-puling domestic enemies of America would almost instantly reach critical mass as they strove and failed to reach a consensus fantasy of the “proper” hierarchy of “oppression,” privilege, and protection.
