AMAC Exclusive – By B.C. Brutus
Just when the left seemed poised to complete its political-cultural dominance, developments in recent weeks provide subtle indications of a tipping point in exactly the opposite direction and the frustration of all the left’s efforts to rule American society.
Trump fail – indictments, lawsuits, and trial by media just won’t work
With the news of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment of former President Donald Trump last month, many in the media and Democrat establishment wanted to believe that even after the collapse of their bogus “Russian collusion” investigation, two failed impeachments, the politicization of the federal bureaucracy, the weaponization of COVID and the electoral process in 2020, a raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, and so many other schemes, Bragg’s “novel legal theory” would at last begin the process of making Trump politically toxic – and perhaps even send him to prison.
The Bragg move instead has had the opposite effect. Far from falling in the polls, Trump experienced a historic surge. He now holds a commanding lead in 2024 Republican primary polling and is also leading President Joe Biden by as much as seven points in last week’s ABC/Washington Post survey.
A further indicator of the left’s failure to use politicized prosecutions to “get Trump” was the collective shoulder shrug of most Americans to the news earlier this week that a jury in Manhattan – which Biden won with 80 percent of the vote in 2020 – held Trump liable for sexual assault charges stemming from an alleged incident 30 years ago. Even with the mainstream media breathlessly insisting that Trump was now a certified sexual abuser, it appears most Americans were smart enough to see the contradiction between the jury finding Trump not guilty of rape charges – in effect asserting that Trump’s accuser was lying about the alleged encounter – and simultaneously awarding her monetary damages for sexual assault.
The final humiliation for the left in their endless attempts to destroy Trump was CNN’s now controversial town hall. The howls from the left that CNN not only failed to embarrass Trump but also permitted him to talk about political realities in America shows the level of fear the left has that their power may well be slipping away.
The tipping point is of course this: If Americans have truly become wise to the politicization of the justice system and numb to trials by media, as these events indicate, then the left may indeed be in deep trouble.
Tucker fail – broadcast and cable networks are no longer “where it’s at”
The failed attempt to destroy Tucker Carlson now promises to expand his reach. After averaging between three and five million viewers per night in his last few months on Fox News, Carlson’s only two Twitter posts since his firing – both videos that comment on the sorry state of cable news – garnered a jaw-dropping 83.3 million and 122.9 million views, respectively.
Although the left was beside themselves with glee following news of Tucker’s ouster, they are now likely panicking at the thought of Tucker broadcasting on Twitter to what will potentially be an exponentially larger audience, unrestrained by the corporate interests of Fox News.
Once again, like the failure of the weaponization of the justice system and trial by media, the woke left is staring at the possibility that American society has moved on from relying on broadcast and cable news and a few papers to be the gatekeepers of information. The names “Tucker” and “Elon Musk” and “Megyn Kelly” may now be tipping point pioneers in what could become a new age of democratized communication.
Bud Light fail – a game-changing warning to corporations and universities
Beyond even the hugely damaging backlash against Anheuser-Busch, seen in that startling video of its boycotted beer stand at Fenway Park, this Bud Light controversy provides growing evidence that the pressure campaigns on businesses and educational institutions on everything from gender craziness to climate madness to essentially anti-religious and anti-patriotic “diversity” campaigns may be permanently enfeebled.
The left’s Bud Light fail has seen what was at first a boycott of the beer for its transgender sponsorship transform into a total rebranding. Bud Light now is a punchline to endless online jokes and memes. The fact that its woke executives are on involuntary leave – a fate once reserved only for employees who expressed conservative views – means countless other institutions are now rethinking their willingness to follow into reputational ruin a woke agenda urged on them by lavishly funded pressure groups.
Hunter cover-up fail – two whistleblowers doing permanent, possibly terminal damage to the media, Garland’s DOJ, and Wray’s FBI
From the media’s and the Deep State’s campaign to portray the Hunter laptop as a Russian disinformation plot to the refusal of the DOJ and FBI to investigate compelling evidence of the Biden family’s involvement in illicit influence peddling schemes, the left had a huge investment in burying the corruption and crimes pointed to by the Hunter laptop.
An IRS whistleblower described as a veteran criminal investigator last month claimed that the Biden administration mishandled and covered up the criminal investigation into the president’s son, Hunter. House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has also said that a whistleblower tells them the FBI is sitting on evidence – which it has thus far refused to turn over to Congress – which suggests a complete failure to investigate claims that then-vice president Joe Biden engaged in a bribery scheme with a foreign national.
If either of these whistleblower reports are confirmed, it would be a catastrophic blow to the media and Democrat establishment. For Biden’s entire presidency, they have insisted that accusations of wrongdoing by the president or his family are nothing more than “conspiracy theories,” going all the way back to the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020 – a story has now repeatedly been proven correct.
In the four cases above, the shift had been sudden. Just as the left seemed poised to continue their dominance of every major American institution, conditions may now be developing that lead to vast swaths of the public, seemingly in unison, rejecting the left’s efforts to dictate what is real and what is not and determine what people should care about.
Such tipping points – those moments that bring colossal but unexpected change – are regularly left unseen until they are too obvious to ignore. Although the term and the phenomenon itself was popularized by author Malcolm Gladwell, no less an historical presence than Winston Churchill used the term to reflect on the remarkable impact such events can have in historical struggles. In his history of World War I, he discussed the unexpected fall of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s militarism at the very moment when it seemed most powerful on the Western Front. Similarly, in his World War II memoir, Churchill notes that at just the moment in March of 1943 that the Nazi u-boat campaign seemed to be strangling Britain’s hope of survival, new tactics and equipment changes by the allies won the Battle of the Atlantic in two months.
As had often been observed, political history has its parallels with the history of other conflicts such as war. It is possible that the country is only now experiencing the shift in public opinion that many conservatives hoped would manifest in a “red wave” of Republican electoral victories last November. Although all of the issues that could be leading to such a moment were undoubtedly simmering beneath the surface last year, a backlash to liberal extremism may only now be beginning thanks to a few events that have exposed the corrupt game the left is playing and could lead to a downstream effect throughout American society.
If this is indeed the case, it will lead to the collapse of the left’s entire political-cultural superstructure.
