In support of diversity of voice and opinion, I hereby present a theory offered by an anonymous person online.
Here is the nutshell of the theory:
In conclusion, the play here is not Sessions per say, it has been to get a Democrat controlled special prosecutor named to obstruct and slow down the Trump administration. Its been planned out by the Democrats since at least Jan 12th.
Here is the full theory: The hidden politics behind the Jeff Sessions smear. This was set up by Obama in January.
I find the author’s explanation of events credible and well-worth considering, if only to gain a better sense of how complex behind-the-scenes moves can be.
The left is using basic Saul Alinksy techniques to hobble, and destroy if they can, the presidency of Donald Trump.
Their basic tactic is attack, attack, attack and lie, lie, lie. Not only are the attacks to be directed against Donald Trump himself, which many are, but they are also directed at the people around him. This includes his family as well as his advisors and cabinet choices.
Since MSM comprises a significant part of the left, these scurrilous attacks (which have even included Barron Trump as a target) are backed up by media talking heads, late night comedians, celebrities, actors, and so on.
Expect to see new attacks almost daily throughout the Trump presidency. I doubt we will see much decline in the extreme MSM slanting of news against Trump which began at the beginning of his campaign.
Yes, it is true that Republicans have and do use similar techniques, but the scope, severity, and baselessness of the attacks coming from the left are more vicious by far. That’s how the left has succeeded in taking over US academia, mainstream media, and until Donald Trump, Washington DC itself.
