In the early 1990s, David Brock was an invaluable conservative reporter who brought to light the worst of the left’s scandals with books on Anita Hill and Paula Jones. But by the time President Bill Clinton was drowning in the Monica Lewinsky controversy, Brock had switched sides, trading in his conservative credentials for a top spot in Democratic Party politics.
There he has remained for nearly two decades. As founder of the liberal watchdog site Media Matters for America, Brock has become what Time magazine once described as “one of the most influential operatives in the Democratic Party.”
And now he’s got his sights set on the impeachment of Donald J. Trump.
From the Washington Free Beacon:
A confidential David Brock memo obtained by the Washington Free Beacon lays out the ways the Democratic operative plans to use his numerous organizations to take down President Donald Trump through impeachment.
Brock is currently at the Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura, Fla. for a weekend conference with more than 100 major liberal donors. Attendees are mapping out a course to combat the newly sworn-in president.
According to the memo obtained by the Free Beacon, Brock plans to spend as much as $14 million in 2017 alone in an effort to get Trump thrown out of office. Using his super PAC – American Bridge – Brock hopes to weaken the president’s agenda using any means possible.
“No other progressive organization has the resources and assets that American Bridge has amassed over the past several election cycles to hold Trump, his administration, and the politicians accountable,” the memo says. “The right will bolster Trump aggressively and deceptively. The campaign to stop him must be nonstop. At American Bridge, it has already begun.”
What a ludicrous waste of money. Is Brock not aware that there are dozens of liberal newspapers and several liberal TV news organizations that make his efforts redundant? This is like the liberals who say they need a left-wing version of Rush Limbaugh or a left-wing answer to Fox News. Look around! Open your eyes! 95% of the mainstream media landscape qualifies as the left-wing version of conservative news!
“The number of stories and the value of TV time for anti-Trump media coverage we generate will break all internal records,” the memo reads. “Multiple Trump nominations will become a drag on his administration due to the research we unearth. Trump’s approval rating will remain historically low.”
How does this benefit the United States? If Brock and his PAC are successful, Trump will fail spectacularly and we will see him take Richard Nixon’s disgraced helicopter flight out of Washington. That’s the left’s idea of victory – to recreate one of the darkest moments in our nation’s history.
There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not Trump can “unify” the country. Well, if unifying the country means compromising with people like David Brock, then it’s the last thing we need.
