David Limbaugh: Kayleigh McEnany gets vitriol hurled at her daily by liberal media — and it proves this

Don’t listen to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s predictable critics. The level of vitriol the leftist media hurls at her daily — during and apart from the press briefings — conclusively proves she is doing a superb job.

Liberal journalists whip their long knives in her direction and seem shocked she doesn’t grovel. They’ve been savaging her since her first press conference on May 1. No one with the audacity to work for President Donald Trump deserves a second’s worth of honeymoon.

On McEnany’s first day, New York Times White House correspondent Annie Karni quoted her as saying she would never lie to the press and then cited numerous examples of her supposedly violating the oath right off the bat.

WHITE HOUSE BRIEFLY LOCKED DOWN AS UNREST SPREADS TO ATLANTA, DC, NYC AFTER GEORGE FLOYD DEATH

They were lying in wait for her.

They still are. On May 26, Tom Jones from Poynter called McEnany “arrogant, inexperienced and ineffective.” “(S)he just looks overmatched,” he wrote. “(I)n barely more than a month, McEnany has already had several high-profile controversies.”

I wonder why she’s had “controversies.” Could it be that the White House media cabal enters those briefings with war paint — ready to smear President Trump and discredit McEnany if she interferes with their plan?

The media’s attitude is purely adversarial, yet they act appalled that McEnany returns fire, albeit calmly, respectfully and eloquently. They uniformly dismiss this Harvard Law graduate as green and over her head, but she is remarkably polished, and it is driving them mad.

It would be different if the media were to use the briefings to help inform the viewing public. But few of them ever ask questions that could better inform the citizenry. Instead, they serve up accusations not even thinly disguised as genuine questions.

Let me give you a sadly typical example. Politico’s Ryan Lizza asked McEnany: “What does the White House view as having — by Election Day, what does the White House view as the number of dead Americans where you can say that you successfully defeated this pandemic? Is there a number?”

As I watched this, I was stunned at the brazen inappropriateness of the question — and few things from this bunch surprise me. When McEnany refused the bait and said that every single life matters, Lizza persisted, asking, “When voters go to the polls in November and they want to judge the president on his response to this pandemic, what is the number of dead Americans that they should tolerate …?”

The question was so out of line I admire McEnany for retaining her composure. But she crossed the media’s inviolable line in telling Lizza he was asking the wrong question and suggesting that he could have asked a more pertinent one. How dare she position herself as his equal?

Fair observers know that Lizza’s question was crass, outrageous and an egregious example of the left politicizing everything about the coronavirus.

The media’s attitude is purely adversarial, yet they act appalled that McEnany returns fire, albeit calmly, respectfully and eloquently. They uniformly dismiss this Harvard Law graduate as green and over her head, but she is remarkably polished, and it is driving them mad.

You see, you are not allowed to talk back to the sacrosanct Washington press corps, especially if you work for that unrefined, interloping president who stole the election and is still trespassing on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. As Trump’s press secretary, McEnany is an accessory to his adverse possession of the White House who forfeited any expectation of civil treatment when she accepted the job.

Some television anchors and commentators are particularly offended by McEnany’s aforementioned practice of parrying the hostile questions they volley at her with suggestions of other questions. This just cannot happen because the press is holy and McEnany is their inferior who must curtsy while they abuse her and slander her boss.

More from Opinion

It is odd enough these self-important journos believe they are above challenge, but it is even more so considering they draw first blood. Do they actually believe McEnany is supposed to stand there passively in the face of their mistreatment, and not fire back and reasonably defend herself and President Trump?

I can guarantee you one thing: The tens of millions of Trump supporters don’t agree, and they have her back. We don’t share the media’s warped belief that they can behave rudely and then whine like innocent victims when they get a small dose of their own medicine.

The media can continue this sick charade that they are objective journalists, but half the nation knows better, and the other half probably does, too. But many approve of the media’s odious behavior because they applaud a media at war with a president they loathe. Anyone familiar with media “fact-checkers” knows that today’s left describes contrary opinions as lies.

Even if McEnany were completely deferential, the Trump-hunting media would never accept her unless she betrayed Trump. They would accuse her of lying anytime she presented a position that differs from theirs.

The liberal media will continue to posture and complain about McEnany, and the rest of us can rest assured that in so doing, they further validate her in our eyes.

David Limbaugh: RIP Ravi Zacharias, good and faithful servant

Three short months ago, I received an encouraging text from my friend Ravi Zacharias. Now, as if in a blink of an eye, he has passed away. Along with countless thousands, I grieve.

When he wrote, he was reeling from excruciating back pain but wholly unaware of the cancer diagnosis that would soon follow. Despite his suffering and his onerous schedule, he shared that he was praying for my brother, Rush, who had just been diagnosed with cancer.

Ravi was a unique Christian apologist and evangelist — a giant in his field. No one presented the Gospel more cogently and winsomely than he. Though gone from this Earth, his legacy and his indispensable ministry, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, or RZIM, will continue in the abundantly capable hands of his wife and ministry partner, Margie Zacharias; their three children, Sarah Zacharias Davis, Naomi Zacharias and Nathan Zacharias; and so many other amazing Christian apologists.

LAUREN GREEN: REMEMBERING RAVI ZACHARIAS — CHRISTIAN LEADER’S DEATH MARKS THE END OF AN ERA

I first became aware of Ravi before I was a believer and when I was still struggling with doubts. I watched in awe as he explained during a television interview Christianity’s basic truths in a way I had never heard. He exuded a confident mind tempered by a humble heart.

I remember thinking to myself, “Wow, I’d like to see any Christian skeptic listen to this man and dare claim that intellectuals can’t be Christians, or that Christians can’t be intellectual.” He was so obviously a deep thinker and gifted communicator. This brief exposure to Ravi was one of the pivotal seeds planted on my path to faith in Christ.

Ravi’s faith journey began when, at age 17, he found himself in a New Delhi hospital recovering from a suicide attempt. Someone read him Jesus’ words in the Gospel of John: “Because I live, you will also live.” At that moment, he immersed himself in prayer, promising God that if he were to leave the hospital, he would vigorously pursue truth. Upon discovering the truth of the Gospel, he spent the rest of his life fulfilling that pledge.

Ravi had a heart for defending the faith against challenges and taking the Gospel to unbelievers. He firmly believed that we are called upon to love the Lord not only with all of our heart, soul and strength but also all of our mind, as Jesus instructed. Contrary to cynics who dismiss Christianity as anti-intellectual, Ravi knew Christianity’s truth claims could withstand the scrutiny of rigorous intellectual inquiry, and he devoted his life to demonstrating it.

More from Opinion

He knew you couldn’t argue someone into the Kingdom of God, but he recognized that certain questions plagued doubters and that answering those questions was often an important step in removing obstacles to faith. He took seriously the Apostle Peter’s admonition: “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15).

Unlike some, Ravi didn’t ignore the last part of Peter’s teaching. He always approached doubters with grace. It is sheer joy to watch internet videos of his many question-and-answer sessions with university students. In every encounter, Ravi treated skeptics as he would a lifelong friend whose eternal destiny was his driving concern. You could see God working in these exchanges, which were never contentious and were always overflowing with good cheer.

One hallmark of Ravi’s ministry is his credo that when anyone asks a believer a question about the Christian faith, the believer must focus on the questioner as much as the question. “I have reminded myself over the years to never forget that behind every question is a questioner and behind every questioner is a network of assumptions, hurts, struggles and often prejudices,” wrote Ravi.

The purpose is never to win a debate or humiliate the questioner. It is to offer the questioner a rationale basis for our faith in Christ. We must try to understand that person’s mindset and tailor our response to meet him where we find him.

As brilliant as Ravi was, he knew that even the best of finite human minds could not fully comprehend the infinite mind of Christ. He marveled at the story of Jesus explaining the Scriptures to men on the road to Emmaus in one of His resurrection appearances as “their hearts burned within them.”

“Who would not like to interview Jesus Christ?” asked Ravi. “It is not possible to live without asking questions — and what better source for the answers than the one who claimed to be the Way, the Truth and the Life? If one could only be face to face with Him from whom life comes, whom to know means Truth and to follow means direction, how delightful would be those moments when the most confounding questions of life are raised.”

Ravi is now face-to-face with His Savior, who he can approach directly with any remaining questions. As I contemplate this glorious scene, it warms my heart that Christ will meet the wonderful Ravi Zacharias saying, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Amen.

No, President Donald Trump is not ranting and raving about Obamagate to keep himself center stage or to distract attention from COVID-19, as liberal media are suggesting. They still don’t get Trump.     

Two recent columns contend that Trump has ulterior motives in harping on Obamagate – the notion that the Obama administration tried to destroy Trump with the myth that he colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

Wrong. How about we draw the most obvious inferences from Trump’s statements instead of the liberal establishment’s theories, which are far more outlandish than the Obamagate conspiracy they’re ridiculing.

SALLY PIPES: CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE – BUY AMERICA PUSH WOULD HURT US. HERE’S HOW

Everyone knows that Trump has long been outraged by the Russia hoax, and with good reason. Even after he has been thoroughly vindicated of this frame job, the perpetrators have escaped accountability, and the left still pretends Trump is the guilty party.

Trump was effectively exonerated when the vaunted, high-powered and obscenely funded team of Special Counsel Robert Mueller couldn’t find a shred of evidence to tie Trump to Russian election meddling. Now, with the revelation that Obama administration officials and the FBI collaborated to incriminate former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, the retired Army lieutenant general, we have a smoking .357 Magnum in the hands of scores of those officials.

More from Opinion

It is the liberal media – not Trump – who are trying to divert the public’s attention from a story – the one showcasing the Democrats’ complicity.

If we had never heard of COVID-19, Trump would be railing against this corruption even more vigorously than he is now, because most of his day is consumed by virus-related health and economic issues. But don’t bother telling that to Trump-obsessed journos.

CNN’s Oliver Darcy writes that although the virus has killed more than 82,000 and left millions unemployed, Trump and his conservative media allies are “constructing a separate alternate reality to keep their fans distracted from the news and outraged at the long-standing villains in the right-wing media universe.”

Though this might stun Darcy, we hayseed Trump deplorables are capable of walking and chewing tobacco simultaneously. Notwithstanding our diminished capacity, we stay abreast of virus and economic updates, which constitute 99.9 percent of the news, even with coverage of the Obamagate story the liberal media are trying to suppress.

No matter how much you mock it, no matter how much you want the country to focus solely on the virus, life has to go on, and other issues, especially Obamagate, still matter.  

Actually, Trump wants us to focus on the virus and on out-of-work Americans because he is determined to prudently reopen the economy precisely to help the same people these journos claim he is ignoring. If Trump were trying to shift our attention from the economy or the virus, why would he publicly disagree with Dr. Anthony Fauci on the reopening of schools in the fall? Moreover, it is inconceivable that he could avoid virus-related issues during the campaign even if he tried. The media’s diversion claim is patently absurd.

Politico’s Jack Shafer is promoting the bizarre theory that Trump is pushing Obamagate and other “outrageous claims” because he wants the spotlight on himself, even if only for critical coverage:

“Making him the subject of our conversations is almost as good to Trump as making him the video camera’s focal point. … Obviously, he’d like it better if the commentariat praised him, but if they’re going to criticize him, he’s content to annotate the insults and censures and repurpose them as offensive weapons. … Baseless charges like these (Obamagate, China, Joe Scarborough, QAnon) are the perfect refuge of a rhetorical arsonist like Trump, who scorches the earth with controversy and confusion so nobody knows where to find the truth.”

Sorry, Mr. Schafer, but Trump truly believes he was set up with the Russia hoax, and the evidence supports him. That’s why he’s ranting about it even while COVID-19 is still with us.

No matter how much you mock it, no matter how much you want the country to focus solely on the virus, life has to go on, and other issues, especially Obamagate, still matter.

There must be a reckoning for the political party that abused governmental power to engineer a coup against the other party. In a saner world, Democrats would agree with this, as it was the premise upon which the bogus Russia-Trump investigation was based.

Progressives pounded the table for three years over Trump’s alleged theft of the election, and they now expect us to shuffle docilely into the night when we have his opponents dead to rights doing the very thing they accused him of doing?

So, no, gentlemen, you are hopelessly off base. Trump intends to keep the coronavirus-related issues on the front burner. They must be if he is to lead America back to health and wealth. Unlike the left, he is not ignoring the economic devastation caused by this virus. Unlike the left, he is taking action instead of engaging in “rhetorical arson,” if I may humbly borrow Schafer’s incendiary term.

The left can smear Trump from their basements for not waving his wand and immediately accelerating our COVID-19 testing capacity to a billion per month and for the economic devastation caused by shutting down the economy. But they show unprecedented audacity blaming him for a death count that would have been worse and for an economic shutdown that would go on indefinitely if they were in charge.

Unhappily for the media, President Trump is alert, engaged and proactively addressing a comprehensive range of issues affecting Americans. He is fully capable of calling attention to this Democratic corruption of shocking magnitude without impeding his efforts to make America well and prosperous again.

The left’s position on the nation’s proper response to the coronavirus pandemic, though shrouded in the language of compassion, is incoherent and morally repugnant virtue signaling.

Since this calamity began, many national Democratic leaders, the left-wing media and various never-Trumpers have been more interested in smearing President Donald Trump — no change there — than helping to solve the myriad problems caused by the coronavirus.

They wanted it both ways. President Trump was doing too much, and he wasn’t doing enough. Before the outbreak, numerous Democrats were downplaying the virus and condemning Trump as a racist for his China and Europe travel bans.

DR. KEVIN OLSEN: CORONAVIRUS FRONT LINES – HERE’S HOW WE TRY TO COPE WITH THE HEARTBREAK

Later they blamed Trump for not taking the virus seriously, when in fact, they were taking it less seriously than he was. But being a progressive means never having to say you’re sorry — and that yesterday’s inconsistent positions are deemed wiped from our collective memory.

From the beginning, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, along with their medical team, were conducting daily press briefings to inform an anxious nation about the virus and the federal and state governments’ efforts to slow the spread, organizing the distribution of medical equipment to hotspots and pushing legislation to provide relief for individuals and businesses devastated by the outbreak.

The media used those briefings to humiliate Trump rather than illicit facts to inform viewers. For example, New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi asked Trump, “If an American President loses more Americans over the course of six weeks than died in the entirety of the Vietnam War, does he deserve to be reelected?”

Editorial after editorial excoriated Trump for every imaginable sin and certainly every death — while exempting Democratic governors from any accountability for wildly disproportionate cases and deaths in their states. They view everything through a partisan prism, and no crisis is too severe to be exploited for political gain.

Trump, they said, was only interested in manipulating the crisis to enhance his reelection efforts. He jumped the gun in expressing his hope to reopen our economy on Easter. He wasn’t listening to the medical experts. He didn’t care about Americans dying. He was practicing medicine without a license.

Unfortunately for these critics, President Trump was deferring to the medical experts, who repeatedly denied that he was ignoring them.

Considering themselves the sole exemplars of compassion, progressives insist that their views are the only morally acceptable ones, that all who oppose them are immoral and that so long as they have “good” intentions, neither their motives nor their policies can be questioned — even if they are inconsistent or cause major harm.

Democratic leaders get away with indefensible, one-dimensional thinking, free from scrutiny by an equally one-dimensional media. Their statements are often childishly shallow — and yet no one challenges them.

More from Opinion

Take putative Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who tweeted Wednesday evening, “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: No one is expendable. No life is worth losing to add one more point to the Dow.”

While this may strike unthinking people as a compassionate declaration, it is a cheap shot at Trump, other leaders trying to facilitate the reopening of our economy and Americans yearning to be free again — and to return to work. Biden is simply expressing his party’s position: You must choose between those at risk from the virus and reopening the economy. There are no competing interests to balance. Your concern for those unemployed, devastated, isolated, depressed and with other medical problems that are ignored because of the virus is illegitimate.

What’s particularly offensive is Biden’s reducing our concern for those financially devastated to a class-warfare soundbite (“to add one more point to the Dow”) — as if having a heart for the unemployed is promoting the rich. That doesn’t even make sense, but it doesn’t have to as long as it serves the narrative that Republicans are heartless.

Similarly, the never-Trump group The Lincoln Project produced an ad called “Mourning in America” in which Trump is blamed not just for the Americans who died because he “ignored” the virus but for the economic devastation it caused. That’s convenient. These faux conservatives have absorbed the ideas and tactics of their progressive soulmates — virtue signaling, the shameless advocacy of mutually contradictory positions and consuming hatred for Donald J. Trump.

You know that Trump haters from both sides of the aisle have lost any semblance of fairness when their biases compel them to direct their energies toward destroying Trump rather than seeking solutions for our common problems.

We should all be working together to reopen the economy while trying to prevent new flare-ups, which happens to be precisely what President Trump and his task force are doing.

Talk is cheap, and finger-pointing is easy, but real-world problems sometimes don’t lend themselves to easy fixes. There are no perfect solutions here — there is no way to avoid death and financial destruction, only to mitigate both.

I trust that reasonable people — hopefully still a majority — will demand accountability from their leaders but not hold them to impossible standards. While people often look to government during times of crisis, we must understand that there’s only so much that government can do and sometimes it can also get in the way. It’s time that state governments show a little faith in the American people and respect their prerogative to return to their lives while still exercising responsible behavior to protect themselves and their neighbors. We will get through this.

What are we to make of the dire predictions of President Trump’s political doom – that he doesn’t stand a chance for reelection in November?

I’ve read numerous mainstream media reports gloating over polls that show presumed Democratic nominee Joe Biden surging and Trump plummeting. I’m not one to casually dismiss polls, but I view them skeptically, especially given their poor track record in more recent elections, and pollsters’ brazen manipulation of them to sway public opinion.     

Don’t the wildly failed polls forecasting a Hillary Clinton victory in 2016 warrant our skepticism? Pre-election polling was uniformly wrong and so were Election Day exit polls.

CARRIE SEVERINO: BIDEN ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS — VP CANDIDATES’, DEMS’ RESPONSE A MASTER CLASS IN HYPOCRISY

I’m old enough to remember when exit polling was so accurate that if you got word at noon on Election Day that your favored candidate was losing, you could take it to the bank – or to your psychiatrist. You knew the pit in your stomach was based on something real and likely irreversible. At some point, however, that changed, and it’s hard to know why.

More from Opinion

The accuracy of pre-election polling has also waned over the years, maybe because it’s hard to get a random sampling with the advent of cellphones and deserved cynicism over politically motivated polling.

In this era of political correctness, political shaming and cancel culture, surely many tell pollsters what they think the pollsters want to hear rather than what they truly believe. Let’s also admit that polls vary widely.

Just this week, as progressives were reporting that polling shows Trump is toast, a new Gallup poll shows his approval ratings at an all-time high.

But let’s consider another factor that requires us to take polls with bags of salt: the highly fluid nature of current events, including some that were unforeseeable and beyond our control.

I remember an informed Trump supporter telling me way back in 2017 that, based on polls he was seeing, Trump’s chances for reelection were slim.

My reaction was that the likelihood of the 2020 election being determined by the state of affairs in 2017 was comparable to that of Joe Biden defeating Chuck Norris in an MMA contest. I told my friend that it was unlikely the factors driving the polls would be as relevant in 2020.     

Haven’t President Trump’s approval ratings fluctuated considerably since then? Plus, how can anyone accurately predict the outcome of a contest when only one of the competitors has been identified?   

Moreover, I’ve always doubted that polls could measure voter intensity, which many believe is enormously important.

Most Trump supporters are passionate and loyal. I don’t discount the anti-Trump passion out there, too, but I’d rather have passionate voters for a certain candidate than those indifferent to their own candidate but passionately against his opponent.     

There’s no evidence that anyone is passionately for Biden, except maybe his family. He never was inspiring, but in his present state, he couldn’t get an illiterate pyromaniac to attend a book burning.

The only reason Biden’s candidacy was resurrected is that, once again, Crazy Bernie leaped into the Democratic presidential punch bowl, and no one could flush him. That left to party honchos the task of jumping on the Biden moped and endorsing him with enough phony sincerity to take Sanders out with coup-like ferocity.     

Many election influencers, such as the economy and foreign policy, can change rapidly.

A president can preside over a growing economy for his entire presidency until a financial meltdown reframes the political landscape a month before the election. An act of war or the eruption of a bona fide presidential scandal can cause a dramatic uptick in or erosion of support. But nothing in modern times has so radically altered the status quo in this country as COVID-19.     

If the election had occurred before the pandemic, it would have been a referendum mostly on Trump’s economic record. If the election had been in April, it might have turned on his perceived response to the virus.

If the election were today or sometime in the next few months, as our focus increasingly shifts from coronavirus fears to jobs anxiety, it would turn largely on Trump’s handling of the economic “reopening.”

Who knows where the economy will be in November? If the virus fiercely rebounds shortly before the election, or if the economy hasn’t recovered, Trump could be blamed, fairly or not. 

I have no intention of predicting the outcome of the November election now. We can rationally discuss the variables, but until we see how these monumental events play out, no one – I repeat, no one – knows whether President Trump will be reelected, or why or why not.

The message, then, to Trump supporters is that even reliably accurate polls represent at most a brief snapshot in time. So don’t hyperventilate over polls released right now or the eventual political impact of rapidly unfolding events.

We just have to pray the same prayer we would pray if the election were to not matter to the future of the country: that President Trump manages the ship of state with a steady hand and deftly navigates the nation through these turbulent waters, and that the coronavirus greatly subsides and the economy vigorously rebounds.

David Limbaugh: Coronavirus — Trump-hating liberal media unable to see even anything outside a partisan lens

The liberal media are urging former Vice President Joe Biden to form a shadow government to upstage President Trump’s crisis response effort, which illustrates its consuming partisanship — and its insufficient attention to the health and welfare of the American people.

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle floated the idea during an interview with former Barack Obama staffer Jim Messina. Referring to Trump’s COVID-19 daily press briefing, Ruhle asked, “Should Joe Biden be counterprogramming that? Should he be creating his own shadow government, shadow cabinet, shadow SWAT team, and getting up there at a podium every night, saying, ‘Here’s the crisis we’re in. Here’s what we need to do to address this’?”
      
I’ll concede that if Biden were to follow Ruhle’s ludicrous suggestion, Trump would be the biggest beneficiary. If some are still unaware of Biden’s diminishing competence, they would certainly learn of it in counter-press briefings. But let’s not get sidetracked with our own partisan ruminations when we should be working together to mitigate Americans’ medical and economic hardships.

GUTFELD ON TRUMP SHATTERING THE MEDIA CEILING

Sadly, the media can’t get beyond their obsessive hatred for Trump to approach this moment with even minimal clarity. We witness this repeatedly at the briefings. Some reporters seek to elicit facts that will help inform the public, but far too many are there to grandstand and to embarrass and shame the president.

They sling their gotcha questions, hoping to trick Trump into admitting he didn’t act quickly enough and isn’t effectively overseeing the distribution of equipment and other aid to the states. Some have very nearly accused Trump of causing American deaths.

Aside from the spuriousness of their claims, these questions are utterly inappropriate and counterproductive at briefings whose purpose is to update the American people on our battle against the coronavirus and on plans to reopen the economy.

Accusing Trump of an initially tardy response, even if true (which it isn’t), distracts our attention from combating this pandemic. It may satisfy their Trump-hating lust, but it serves no constructive purpose. If they want to pursue yet another investigative crusade against Trump in time to damage him before the November election, how about they wait just a few more months while the adults try to alleviate real pain befalling real people?

The idea of a shadow government is not just ill-motivated; it is absurd. Who are these clowns kidding?

The president’s principal medical advisers on this crisis, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, are certainly not Republicans telling Trump whatever he wants to hear. If members of the liberal media are paying attention, they also know that Trump is respectfully considering their every word and, in most cases, deferring to their judgment.

More from Opinion

The media were aghast when Birx shattered their narrative of Trump as an inattentive lummox. “He’s been so attentive to the scientific literature and the details and the data,” said Birx. “I think his ability to analyze and integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit during these discussions about medical issues.” So do I.

The media have tried to drive a wedge between Fauci and Trump, but neither of them would have it. Fauci has insisted that there is little, if any, inconsistency in their positions.

There is no tension between Trump and these doctors in the briefings. Fauci has also been quite clear in disabusing Trump’s media prosecutors of their claim that Trump was delinquent in responding to the crisis — because if Trump was late, Fauci was even later.

So what would these armchair quarterbacks hope to accomplish through their fantasy shadow team, other than keeping Biden in the limelight by presenting some bogus alternative to the administration’s leadership?

As it turns out, Ruhle wasn’t the first to pitch the shadow government concept. On March 23, Washington Post opinion writer Paul Waldman proposed it. “In Britain, the opposition party maintains a ‘shadow’ cabinet, a group of spokespeople assigned the same policy areas as the ministries of the government, to offer the opposition’s view on whatever issue is being discussed at a given moment,” wrote Waldman.

“While Biden probably wouldn’t want to assign specific Cabinet positions now he could utilize both his own aides and people in the broader Democratic world to give the public a picture of what government under President Biden would be up to — and provide a contrast with the chaos, corruption, and incompetence that characterizes the Trump administration.”

The common thread uniting Ruhle, Waldman and the rest of the Trump-hating media cabal is their inability to see anything outside a partisan lens. Even now while thousands of Americans have died and millions are suffering financially, they can’t see past their unremitting contempt for him, and they can’t apply their energy toward helping Trump solve these problems instead of scheming of ways to unseat him in November.

Meanwhile, Trump has organized both his coronavirus task force and his Opening Our Country Council on a bipartisan basis, and he is working across party lines with businesses and state governments to address the crisis.

While the media have failed to make their case against Trump for incompetence and partisanship, they have resoundingly demonstrated their own — and the public is not likely to soon forget it.

Many things about Christianity are counterintuitive but none more than this: God the perfect Father sent Jesus the perfect Son to Earth as a human being to suffer and die for the sins of imperfect human beings so that those who believe in the Son would receive the perfect Holy Spirit and live in eternal love with God.

Scripture makes all this clear.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16).

SCOTT GUNN: WHAT IS GOOD FRIDAY AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?

“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on a cross!” (Philippians 2:5-8).

“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you” (Romans 8:11).

While we properly emphasize Christ’s deity, we sometimes underappreciate His full humanity. It’s distasteful for lowly humans to imagine that the God of the universe could or would take on human form, let alone do so to save us. Shouldn’t that be beneath Him?

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

Of course, that’s precisely the point. It was beneath Him, and He did it anyway out of His pure love for us — each of us as individuals. He became human to save us but also to empathize with us through His suffering so he could feel our pain. His human suffering, which is worse than ours could ever be considering He is God, makes Him approachable, as the writer of Hebrews affirmed.

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:15).

Through His incarnation and passion, Jesus not only relates to us but also enables us to understand Him. Given His perfect attributes, one would think mere humans couldn’t fathom His nature, much less relate to Him. And yet we can do both.

Perhaps we can’t fully comprehend God’s infinite love, power and knowledge, but we can understand His nature. The Gospels reveal Jesus’ nature and thus God’s nature. Jesus tells us, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9), and “The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me” (John 12:45). Apostle Paul (Colossians 1:15) and the writer of Hebrews (Hebrews 1:3) express the same truth.
    
Christ’s perfection is so sublimely revealed in the Gospels that the finest fiction writer couldn’t have created a character like Him, because He is beyond the capacity of the human intellect and imagination to construct.

More from Opinion

Christ spoke with divine authority: “The crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes” (Matthew 7:28-29). He radiated the full power of God. His words exude truth, making His teachings irresistibly attractive to all who heard Him. When the authorities asked the temple guards why they didn’t arrest Jesus, they replied, “No one ever spoke the way this man does” (John 7:46). Don’t you see? They sensed He was God.

We must, then, appreciate both Christ’s deity and humanity, because it is only through understanding His deity that we can grasp the profound sacrifice in His decision to become human, and to suffer and die for us. God’s salvation plan required Christ’s dual nature because if Jesus were not both fully human and fully divine, He could not have lived a sinless life, and He couldn’t have become sin for us.

One of the major stumbling blocks to the Christian faith is the reality of human suffering in the world, and we are getting a megadose of that now with the coronavirus pandemic. We are comforted, however, by the Bible’s assurance that we have a God who intimately understands our pain even more than we do because He lived it — and continues to live it. Our pain is His pain. Jesus doesn’t stand apart from our suffering but lives in it, and He promises us that despite the agony we will endure on Earth, the glory and bliss of Heaven will infinitely eclipse it.

On this Easter holiday, as we try to make sense of the human pain around us, let’s focus on the cross and on Jesus’ triumphant declaration: “It is finished” (John 19:30). Yes, it was a triumphant statement.

“This was not the despairing cry of a helpless martyr; it was not an expression of satisfaction that the termination of his sufferings was now reached; it was not the last gasp of a worn-out life,” says Christian writer Arthur Pink. “No, rather was it the declaration on the part of the divine Redeemer that all for which he came from heaven to earth to do, was now done; that all that was needed to reveal the full character of God had now been accomplished; that all that was required by law before sinners could be saved had now been performed; that the full price of our redemption was now paid.”

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

What was finished? Christ’s victory over Satan, sin and death so that we may live and live abundantly (John 10:10). “Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death — that is, the devil — and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death” (Hebrews 2:14). “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work” (1 John 3:8).

Prayers for all who are suffering physically and financially, and for America to recover from this nightmare.

David Limbaugh: 2020 Democrats and tricky truth that emerged about them this week

Westlake Legal Group image David Limbaugh: 2020 Democrats and tricky truth that emerged about them this week fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-debate fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc f4c3b5ae-dda0-563a-ac01-77f3bd48b346 David Limbaugh Creators Syndicate article

One overarching truth emerged from the cacophonous Democratic debate this week: The Democrats haven’t got game. They’re floundering. They’re lost. And they’re coming up short.

Everyone on that stage except maybe the clueless Michael Bloomberg recognized that Sen. Bernie Sanders is the dominant front-runner, so they trained their sights on him, which is hardly a smart strategy for ingratiating yourself to the Democratic base responsible for his popularity.

It’s like trying to win someone’s love by trashing his family. So right out of the gates, these contenders shot themselves in the foot. Not a good look.

NEWT GINGRICH: TRUMP VS. BERNIE SANDERS AND THE DEMOCRATS – THE STATESMAN BEATS THE FOOD FIGHTERS

Moderator Norah O’Donnell, herself a progressive and strongly rooting for the eventual Democratic nominee, fired the opening question to Sanders: How would he turn voters away from Trump when his economy is doing so well? “We haven’t had an unemployment rate this low for this long in 50 years,” said O’Donnell, probably with a sour taste in her mouth.

I’m sure Sanders and the rest of the hapless lot were thinking, “Thanks a lot, Nora. Thanks for undermining our entire reason for political existence. Whose side are you on, girlfriend?”

O’Donnell apparently got the memo that Sanders has to be taken out because, as a self-professed socialist, he will have a disadvantage in the general election. Maybe MSNBC’s panicky Chris Matthews gave her a call.

The incongruous billionaire Tom Steyer sought to thread the needle with Bernie’s Brigade by praising their idol for correctly identifying the problems facing the country but disputing his solutions.

He violated several cliches here. He was too cute by half, and you can’t give with one hand and take with the other — not with socialists, anyway, who are all about freebies. Try taking anything away from them and you’ll pull back a bloody stub.

That would be a major problem for Steyer if he were remotely relevant in this campaign, but relevance is not his strong suit. With his failed criticism of Sanders, however, he raised the curtain on a major problem facing the Democrats. You can’t — to invoke another cliche — cut the baby in half. You can’t divorce problems that socialist Sanders identifies from solutions that socialist Sanders offers, for they are ideologically interconnected.

Sanders believes the problem facing the country is too much capitalism, which necessarily makes the solution socialism.

Does Steyer not realize that? Must he be dispatched to the progressive woodshed? Leftists need to remind this billionaire that “he didn’t build that.”

Please don’t accuse me of overgeneralizing about Sanders’ problems and solutions because I’ve read plenty of progressive critics who are crestfallen over Sanders’ lack of specificity in the debate.

In fairness, the non-Bernie candidates shouldn’t be sore at O’Donnell, because they undermined their own reason for political existence by failing to present an alternative to President Donald Trump.

They offered no constructive solutions for the country. They just trashed one another. In this way they are a mirror image of their Democratic counterparts in Congress, who have offered nothing constructive for the country throughout Trump’s term.

They’ve only trashed, investigated and tried to impeach him. But in their defense, they have nothing, so what are they supposed to do? They have no answer for Trump because answers don’t exist for nonexistent problems.

If you’re a Democrat, you can’t be pleased with much about this debate. Sen. Elizabeth Warren basically endorsed Bernie’s socialism but implied he isn’t disciplined and detailed enough, as she is, to implement his wonderful ideas.

More from Opinion

Well, if you’ll recall, it’s Warren who’s been unable to explain the math behind her proposals, and it’s Warren who hasn’t been forthright about her own socialism, though she came pretty close when identifying with Bernie.

The three Bs all went down barely swinging. Former Vice President Joe Biden loses more in stature with each appearance. He pandered to African Americans with his usual suck-up to former President Barack Obama and whined all night about being treated unfairly. Hardly presidential — or even vice presidential.

Bloomberg was pathetic. He didn’t lay a glove on Sanders or anyone else except himself. Former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was a walking paradox: He defended himself against lacking passion with his enthusiasm for being boring. He passionately doubled down on being comatose and, in his wonderfully mild-mannered state, rudely walked all over a stammering Bernie.

Speaking of Bernie, he was most animated in praising Fidel Castro’s communist Cuba while pretending not to — another not-so-good look.

All in all, it was a pretty good night for us bitter clingers.

David Limbaugh: Democrats need to figure out what they have to offer 2020 voters

Many have noted the dilemma the socialists — er, I mean the Democrats — are in over the prospect of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., winning their nomination. If nominated, they’re running a socialist. If not, their base will be out of sorts.

It’s time for a reckoning. The Democratic Party is going to have to be honest with itself — and the American voters — sooner or later. It is already mostly socialist. But is it ready to embrace the label?

While a majority of Democrats now have a favorable view of socialism (just think about that for a second), a majority of Americans do not, though the gap is shrinking thanks to liberal academia, Hollywood and Democratic propaganda.

AOC CALLS OUT WAPO’S JENNIFER RUBIN, SUGGESTS SHE’S PERPETUATING ‘MISOGYNIST TROPE’ ABOUT WARREN

Democrats always go left during primaries and pretend to be moderate during the general election campaign. But radical leftism now controls their party, and they have little plausible deniability.

More from Opinion

If Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is the nominee, which seems unlikely, we’ll see the media conspiring with her to deceive voters about her socialism. With policies sometimes to the left of Sanders, she still hasn’t owned up to the label.

If Sanders, a card-carrying socialist, is the nominee, there’ll be no point in the media denying it — and Sanders probably won’t either, though crazier things have happened than a proud socialist temporarily shedding his Marxist cap to win the presidency and push the nation further toward socialism.

There’s an arguable parallel between the 2016 Republicans and the 2020 Democrats in that each had a broad range of candidates. And if Sanders is nominated, each will have chosen an unorthodox candidate, but one whom the base can enthusiastically endorse.

The similarities end there. While the left repeats with mind-numbing monotony that the Republicans just keep moving further to the right, that’s really not true. Under President Trump’s leadership, our conservative policies have finally lined up with our rhetoric, but our rhetoric — our agenda — hasn’t become appreciably more conservative since former President Ronald Reagan.

Yes, I’m aware that our never-Trump friends on the right will descend into spasms over my remark that Trump is governing conservatively, but most (not all) of those self-described “principled conservatives” are too busy cavorting with Democrats to be taken seriously. I’ll concede that Trump appears to have strayed from conservative orthodoxy on trade, but even there he’s more of a horse trader than a protectionist. He’s willing to take risks to secure better deals, but this isn’t ideological for him; it’s business, which is who he is and what he’s about.

If Bernie loses, Democrats will have to convince their hopping-mad base that they were forced to settle on a racist-sounding gazillionaire whose tax returns and emoluments clause issues will bite them in the rear — or some other lackluster candidate who will still be light-years better than the evil Donald Trump. Anyone but Trump.

If Bernie wins, Democrats will have bigger problems. It’s not just that Bernie’s an avowed socialist. It’s the economy, stupid! It’s the improved standard of living and rising employment across the board, especially for minorities. It’s the astounding stock market. It’s Trump’s bullishness on America, and America is, in fact, stronger again. It’s that Trump has fulfilled his promises. It’s that Trump and his exceptionally united Republican Party have, by delivering solutions, robbed Democrats of their talking points.

All they’ll have left is identity politics, which means exaggerating race problems, manufacturing gender problems and engaging in all-out thermonuclear class warfare. But every bit of that message is pessimistic. No hope and change on the horizon. All the Democrats have is negativity — complaining about Trump, and whining about unfairness and alleged inequalities.

But given that all income groups are improving and race relations are better than under former President Obama, Democrats will have trouble winning the swing states with only negativity. It doesn’t really matter how much is owned by these evil liberal capitalist billionaires — Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, etc. If people’s lives are better — and they are — class envy won’t be nearly as seductive.

With Democrats always having a built-in electoral vote advantage, Republicans should never be smug about an upcoming election. But we should be optimistic, and we have objective reasons to be. By almost all measures, America is doing better under President Trump. Four more years!

David Limbaugh: Intolerance from the left continues to grow and grow while lacking any self-awareness

One of the most revealing things about the leftist mindset is the usual leftist’s lack of self-awareness about his own intolerance, hatefulness and inclusiveness — unless you distort all those terms to whitewash the reality.

I will never forget reading (and writing about) the unfortunate experience of Professor Janice Price, an education instructor at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. The school suspended Price and cut her salary for subjecting her students to a “hostile environment.” Her sin was placing issues of Teachers in Focus magazine on the table in the back of her classroom that contained articles written from a Christian viewpoint. One of the articles offered suggestions on how teachers should approach the issue of homosexuality in public schools.

Price told the students they could read the magazines if they wanted to but were not required to and would not be given assignments on them. The article on homosexuality offended one student, who filed a complaint with the administration. The vice president of academic affairs sent Price a letter of reprimand, saying her “reprehensible” action of providing students with “intolerant” material “served to create a hostile environment” in violation of school policy. This administrator said that the university “cannot tolerate the intolerable.” Savor that!

Price’s fellow professor and friend Dr. Mary English aptly described the university’s attitude. “We have to be tolerant and politically correct in all other areas except Christianity,” said English. “So it’s okay to be intolerant of Christians as long as Christians are tolerant of everybody else.” Interestingly, DePauw was — and still is — affiliated with the United Methodist Church. And, no, I’m not kidding.

In the nearly 20 years since this unfortunate incident, the double standard and intolerance against Christians has only intensified. Leftists have grown increasingly intolerant of an expanding universe of things they find intolerable. They are just as lacking in self-awareness as they were then, and even less capable of self-reflection. Their intolerance has, in many cases, turned to hostility and, in some cases, hate.

Now turn with me, if you will, to present-day America, where Sen. Elizabeth Warren seeks the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. Warren tweeted a link to a HuffPost article about a U.S. Supreme Court case involving a challenge to a Montana law that provides tax credits for donations to school scholarship organizations that use those donations to fund private schools, both religious and secular.

A provision of Montana’s constitution (the Blaine Amendment) prohibits the expenditure of public funds for religious purposes, and the Montana Supreme Court struck down the tax credit program, even though the use of these funds isn’t technically an expenditure of public funds and even though secular schools benefit along with religious schools.

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether the Montana Supreme Court infringed on the people’s free exercise of religion under the First Amendment by invalidating the program. The court is being asked to follow its precedent that states can’t discriminate against religious organizations by allowing secular organizations to benefit and not religious ones.

Warren, of course, stands with the Montana Supreme Court. She is against school choice programs and doesn’t want any private schools to benefit. But she’s especially against Christian schools benefitting, because in her view, they teach hate.

“States should focus on funding public schools, not private ones — especially not ones that maintain anti-LGBTQ+ policies,” Warren tweeted. “We must ensure every kid — especially LGBTQ+ kids — can get a high-quality education.”

More from Opinion

How does allowing people tax credits for donations to private Christian and secular schools jeopardize LGBTQ+ kids’ education? Warren knows that’s nonsense. Her complaint is that some of the Christian schools that will benefit from the donations use a Christian-based curriculum. She’s upset that their student handbooks teach that God created each person as male or female and that He created marriage to be between one man and one woman. She’s distressed that some of the schools require students and visitors to use restrooms and locker rooms that conform to their biological sex.

To have a snowball’s chance at the Democratic presidential nomination today, you have to push all the politically correct buttons and pander to the party’s leftist base. Sometimes this means you at least have to pretend that you believe certain scriptural passages constitute hate speech. It means you shouldn’t tolerate the opinions of those who follow these biblical teachings.

Sadly, there is a growing hostility from the left toward certain biblical teachings and those who subscribe to them — an insistence on demonizing them for their beliefs. Pretending this isn’t true won’t make it go away. Calling your attention to it should not be controversial. Pointing out intolerance and hate is not exhibiting intolerance and hate. Rolling over and surrendering one’s principles to conform to society’s ever-changing norms is not courageous.

Pray for wisdom, understanding, peace and harmony.
