Mark Caserta: Liberals struggling to rekindle progressivism

The progressive movement, or liberal ideology as many have come to know it, incurred a serious setback with the election of Donald Trump. And they’re not happy about it.

In fact, it seems they’ve nearly lost all sense of reality.

Last week, multiple news outlets, including Breitbart, reported witches across the country gathered on Friday to “cast a spell” with the hopes of “binding” Trump and ejecting him from office.

Per the spell “Facebook event page,” the purpose was to initiate “a mass binding ritual to be performed at midnight on every waning crescent moon until Donald Trump is removed from office.”

So liberals simply refusing to accept the reality of a Trump presidency can now escape to an “alternate dimension.”

A February column by Peter Hasson in The Daily Caller reported “liberals seeking refuge from reality now have a fake news website where they can pretend to live in a world where Hillary Clinton is president!”

Unidentified site proprietors reportedly manage a satirical, repugnant news site devoted to covering stories from an “alternate universe” where Hillary won the presidential election. The site’s description reads: “Long live the true president, Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

Liberals are scraping the bottom of the barrel searching for methods to perpetuate their progressive movement.

I suppose they should be worried. Politifact confirms Democrats have never experienced the large number of losses in legislatures they’ve incurred in recent years. Voters have not only stripped Congress of nearly 70 Democrats since Barack Obama’s presidency, but more than 900 state legislators!

The American people have had enough of failing progressive ideology.

But let’s be clear, if conservatism is to succeed, the leaders in whom voters have placed their trust had better come through – with absolutely no compromising of principles.

Understand, true conservatism is a steadfast guide of standards and values. It doesn’t subscribe to a sliding scale of morality that resets with mankind’s latest thirst for pleasure and independence.

In fact, when conservatism budges, it morphs into progressivism. Many of us have witnessed the self-destruction of a progressive, unrestrained society over the years.

Twenty years ago, a debate about “which bathroom to use” would have been odd to say the least. But now, it’s integral to the progressive platform.

Organizations like the North American Man/Boy Love Association advocate deviant love relationships between men and boys as an alternative lifestyle.

Websites like “Ashley Madison” offer the indulgence of a “discreet encounter,” or a protected way to cheat on your spouse. The website sports over 50 million members!

Marijuana has now been legalized for recreational use in seven states, as well as the District of Columbia.

The list of progressive insanity goes on. What will our future hold if liberals prevail?

But liberals embrace this “progressive” moniker. They flaunt the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of “progress” and condemn anyone as intellectually “deplorable” if they don’t subscribe to it.

But this isn’t progress in industry, technology or science – it’s societal euthanasia.

So, what will liberals be willing to do to resume their “paused” movement?

Get ready.

I submit nearly anything.

Mark Caserta: Is shadow government trying to derail Trump?

The double standard by which liberals comport themselves, on a local and national level, when holding politicians accountable for the truth, is shameful. And it’s damaging our country.

For the past eight years, our nation has been deluged with debilitating lies from the Obama administration and the GOP establishment. In addition to calling out the GOP for their feckless behavior, I’ve often called for progressives to address this “protocol of prevarication” which seems prerequisite for driving their agenda.

But the silence has been deafening. Liberals seem content to cower beneath the progressive banner of shameful innocence and plausible deniability.

Obamacare, for example, was passed on a series of undeniable lies and is now faltering beneath its own weight of unsustainability, yet progressives are still telling us it’s working and that most Americans support it.

With so many lies never having been adequately addressed by the left, it’s the epitome of hypocrisy to rally behind destroying Donald Trump one month into his presidency!

Could this “rebel yell” to sabotage President Trump be an orchestrated one?

After eight years of “not” seeing the need to make this change, days before President Obama left the White House, he issued an executive order making it easier for the nation’s intelligence agencies to share information.

Per a “New York Times” report, in its final days, the Obama administration expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share “globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies, before applying privacy protections.”

Obama’s timing is interesting, considering in the last few days, several intelligence insiders have come forward to describe a “shadow government” of sorts, purposely leaking classified information designed to derail the Trump presidency.

Last week, multiple news sources, including the The Washington Free Beacon, reported top members of the Obama administration national security team may have pre-emptively “launched a communications infrastructure” that would benefit them after leaving the White House, and have told reporters they’re using this network to “undermine Trump’s foreign policy.”

Last week, national security advisor, Michael Flynn, resigned following his apparent “misreporting” of his conversations with the Russian government, which were illegally exposed through information leaked from intelligence sources.

Could this have been the shadow government’s first victory?

The Beacon reported Flynn’s resignation was the result of a “secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus” per multiple sources in and out of the White House.

The notion that Barack Hussein Obama and his liberal conspirators would plan and orchestrate, for all intents and purposes, a coup d’tat, against the Trump administration is beyond the pale and could easily be described as traitorous, if it’s true.

How ironic that such an action is reminiscent of the failed Soviet Union, when it’s liberal Democrats now claiming it’s President Trump with insider ties to Russia.

This isn’t simply an attack on the Trump presidency. It’s an attack on our freedom!

If America ever needed the voices of patriots to be heard above the fray, we need to hear them now.
