In preparation for this article, I thought about my boxing, martial arts, and high school sports experiences, here’s what came to mind.

After recalling all the run of the mil, self-aggrandizing, ‘winning touchdown reception’ like moments, I  remember competing against others who, regardless of my best efforts, I just could not beat.  I am convinced the entire leftist press corps must feel this way each and every time they square off with White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

The White House knows the kind of  biased questions that Kayleigh will be fielding, and with time to prepare, she slays her adversaries like a Spartan warrior at the battle of Thermopile.

During  Monday’s briefing Ms. Kayleigh sparred with the horde of leftist ‘reporters,’ who asked about the recent deadly riots in Portland, Oregon, and Kenosha, Wisconsin.  The press failed miserably in their efforts to trip her up,  as they tried to advance the Democrat’s new campaign strategy, which seems to be to blame President Trump for the violence.  Yes, the violence of radical left wing, anarchist, BLM and Antifa types.  This is an interesting pivot after months of accusing Trump of trying to silence ‘peaceful protests’ and largely ignoring the near nightly riots.

Wy the change? Well, it’s really quite simple, in my estimation.   The progressive mayors and Governors seemed content letting ANTIFA and BLM light their cities on fire.  However, the strategy seems to have backfired big time.  The fact that the left is now concerned with stopping the violence suggests to me that Biden’s internal polls must have shown a serious drop in support.  A drop large enough to prompt him to venture  out of his basement for a short rambling in Pittsburgh.

McEnany opened her briefing listing riot-torn Democrat-run cities where President Trump has deployed federal resources in order to restore peace, law and order.

McEnany verbally decimated a reporter who complained about Trump supporters firing paintballs at Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters who attacked their pro-Trump caravan in Portland on Saturday. McEnany called out the reporter for not asking about the violent left-wing riots … for the last 3 months:

McEnany then closed the briefing with her trademark knockout punch of a walk-off statement.

She called out Democrats Speaker Pelosi (CA) Rep. Jerrold Nadler (NY) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (MA) and CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, for either downplaying the violence or encouraging unrest in the streets:

Another great job Kayleigh and another disaster for the left.

At this point, the Biden team needs help all the help and cover they can get from the media to convince voters to blame President Trump for the “terrible violence”, in progressive governed cities.  Many of which who have rejected help from President Trump and the federal government, while at the same time trying to claim they are going all they can to  minimize the violence coming from Antifa types and BLM.

I do not think it is going to work.  Any one who has access to the internet can see that the left is instigating violence in the street and attacking people just because they disagree with their politics. It is not longer are to openly be a conservative, never mind a Trump supporter, in too many leftist cities.

This nation needs to come together and heal now, or we are headed for some DARK days ahead.  I pray we can once again find peace.
