I’m Rubber, You’re Glue
By Todd Strandberg
I’m sure you’ve all heard this children’s insult poem, but just in case, here’s the full phrase (as I heard/said it): “I’m rubber, you’re glue. Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.” The thought is so basic and easy to understand, millions of people may think they originated this rhyme. A Google search turns the phrase up in the Atlantic Monthly in 1948. Since there is no set source, its history may go back a hundred years or more.
Regardless of the phrase’s history, it applies greatly to our current political environment. If you are on the side of liberal media and the Democratic party, you are rubber. Unless you murdered someone, all your sins will quickly fade from the public record. If you are President Trump or someone on the conservative side, you are covered in glue. Of course, your past errors will be highlighted, and also any made-up lie that be applied to you.
It is generally known that Barack Obama had his administration spy on the Trump campaign. The New York Times reported that the Justice Department’s inspector general said it found no evidence to support claims that the FBI inserted spies into the 2016 campaign. We are told to believe that the FBI had its people in Trump’s headquarters, but they just weren’t spying. The dead giveaway of Obama’s guilt is that the “no evidence” conclusion was leaked to the press before its scheduled release.
Things have gotten so bad in Washington, Obama could freely admit that he broke the law by inserting covert agents into the Trump campaign and by ordering US intelligence officials to tap his phones. For that matter, he could finally confess that Yes, he was born in Kenya. The rule of law has degraded to the point that there is simply no will to enforce the rules.
The process of America becoming a banana republic went into overdrive when Hillary Clinton was given a pass by former FBI director James Comey. As secretary of state, she set up a private server that she used to send and receive classified emails. During numerous campaign stops early on, she said her use of a private server was “allowed.” She also said she turned over all of her emails. A federal investigation determined she was not “allowed” to transmit government secrets on a private server that was vulnerable to hackers, and reports show she destroyed tens of thousands of emails pertinent to the investigation.
Chelsea Clinton has now taken up the family business of being a moral reprobate. Chelsea recently stated that transgender people are more likely to be murdered than non-transgender individuals. Andy Ngo, a conservative journalist, tried to disagree with Chelsea by saying America is actually one the safest places for transgenders. By simply disagreeing with her, Twitter blocked Ngo’s account. Twitter, by its action, was saying we support this false narrative, and if you try to debunk it, we will ban you from our platform.
CNN has hired the core individuals who have acted as Obama’s Henchmen. It’s unlikely they will ever face justice. If the Justice Department was to come after them, they would have a major News outlet to act as their defense counsel.
I’m not sure glue is a strong enough adhesive to describe the effort to apply an offense to President Trump. For four years, this man has been under constant attack from the left. There are currently over 30 Federal, state and congressional authorities that are scrutinizing every aspect of Donald J. Trump’s life through investigations. The impeachment hearings are currently about as productive as the Mueller Report.
If people knew the damage that is being done to our Democracy with these endless witch trials, they would flood their representative’s phone lines and email with angry messages. The public doesn’t care because they don’t see the danger. When they finally realize their mistake, restoration of liberty requires the shedding of blood.
Trump recently predicted the anticipated IG report would reveal “perhaps the biggest scandal in the history of our country.” When the reports comes on Dec 10 and there are no major fireworks, I think the Justice Department might as well close up shop. The swamp creators have the upper hand, and it’s only a matter of time before they turn America into a one-party state.
