Democrats have lost the White House and Congress. Their statewide losses are catastrophic. But the institutional strength of the left has only grown stronger. Each Democrat defeat hollows out the party but increases the power and influence of the left to move the party in an undemocratic direction.
The defeats have elevated the roles of the left’s unelected power bases from the judiciary to the media to academia to the bureaucracy and the non-profit sector. These are the core of the “Resistance”. The mission of the “Resistance” is not to plan for a future democratic victory, but an undemocratic coup.

So, the special election in Georgia’s 6th district, which the left tried so hard to make into a referendum on the Trump presidency, did not go their way. Despite spending an outrageous sum of money, in fact the most ever in any U.S. congressional election, the Democratic National Committee still couldn’t pull off a win. Apparently the DNC doesn’t understand that 6th District Georgia voters can’t simply be bought by bright lights and slick ad campaigns.
They wanted to defeat Republican candidate Karen Handel and convince all Americans that her defeat was equivalent to a nationwide revolt against President Trump. Unfortunately for them, Ms. Handel won the election, despite the massive influx of dollars from the DNC to bolster her colorless, bland opponent, Mr. Osskoff. Well, now that she’s won, expect the Dems and their willing accomplices in the media to walk back (as best they can) their planned “narrative”.

Regardless of what you think about President Trump (and who doesn’t), his rejection of the Paris climate agreement is both sensible and legal. The agreement did not bind its signatories to actually take any specific action to reduce emissions, and it was never an instrument with binding legal authority in the U.S. anyway.

The western left’s feverish defense of and excuses for everything Muslim, including treating women badly, continues apace. Recently the Associated Press and CNN lauded Czech teenager Lucie Myslikova as a budding feminist the world should take note of. But in their haste to lionize her as a woman standing up to a neo-Nazi at a rally, they completely failed to care that her argument in favor of Open Borders was that women being raped is just the price we have to pay for “diversity, peace, and understanding.”
It’s astounding, is it not, that feminism no longer cares how badly women are treated so long as it’s the acceptable type of man who’s mistreating them? Conservative white men raping women on campus? Intolerable. Immigrant, middle eastern, muslim men raping women? Perfectly acceptable. It’s diversity. You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs, and you can’t bring about a beautiful World Without Borders without some women getting being beaten, bloodied, raped, and tossed on the trash heap of those victimized by the march of Progress.

The President of the United States announced that refugees fleeing persecution by a totalitarian regime would be deported. It did not matter that they had risked their lives to come here. They would be sent back. No leftist lawyers crammed airports. No protesters chanted at terminals. No celebrities offered sanctimonious lectures about “who we are”. No one dared to call the lying thug behind it un-American.

Barack Obama did not go out quietly. His unquiet final acts were overshadowed, in part by a successor who refused to come in quietly, and in part by Obama’s own endless, sentimental farewell tour. But there was nothing nostalgic or sentimental about Obama’s last acts. Two of them were simply shocking.
