The following is one of our Full Measure profiles of the anti-Trump "resistance." We will soon profile activists on the other side, including the "Walk Away" and "Blexit" movement. Watch the video by clicking the link at the end of this report.
Three years ago, just after President Trump’s surprise victory, we visited with Democrats forming The Resistance— desperate and determined to undermine the President and turn things in the next election. As we approach the Congressional midterm elections— the elections between Presidential election years— we decided to check back in with some of those resisters and found even though Trump isn’t on this ballot—he’s on their minds.
Caller: Just reminding people to get out and vote on November 6th
Sharyl: These members of the so called Democratic resistance in Pennsylvania’s capital of Harrisburg are working the phones around dinner time on a Wednesday evening, searching for like-minded voters who also want to join the movement.
Caller: She’s coming out to vote, right?
Their goal is to toss incumbent Republican Scott Perry out of Congress— and replace him with Democrat George Scott, a pastor and veteran. They’re also trying to keep Democrat Tom Wolf in the governor’s office and reelect the state’s single Democratic Senator. But more than anything else— they’re trying to stop President Trump.
Marlene Kanuck: All the different things that have been happening, like immigration, the regulations, the environmental regulations they have turned around, the tax break that’s for the top 1 percent. And not for the common people. The courts- changing the courts
Rogette Harris: People now see that elections do matter and they see what the policies are. And they’re scared.
Nearly two years ago, we were in Harrisburg, just after the President’s surprise Pennsylvania victory helped put him over the top. We met Democrat Party organizer Gene Stilp, then organizing a rally on the steps of the State Capitol
Stilp: We have basically an idiot running the government right now, or attempting to run the government, who only governs by Twitter.
This year, when we checked back with Stilp, he told us he’d been deployed out West to help Democrats in tight Senate races there. Also nearly two years ago, we also met a fledgling group of resisters at the home of Andrea Walker in Arlington, Virginia. Now going into the midterms, they told us they’re still active— focusing on trying to pick up a couple of Congressional seats currently held by the GOP.
Sharyl: The Resistance has remained energized and motivated since 2016— making an indelible mark with organized protests in the streets, chasing Republicans out of public places, disrupting the Supreme Court nominee process, and even backing what critics call the mob violence of Anti-Fascists or ANTIFA.
As for President Trump — he’s speaking overflow crowds across the country, using the tactics of the Resistance as a rallying cry.
President Trump: Republicans believe in the rule of law, not the rule of the mob. That’s what it is, it’s a mob.
But we found many on the left do not condone the in-your-face tactics. They are resisting quietly, doing the actual hard, organizational work needed to turn a political tide.
Marlane Kanuck: I’m thinking the best thing we can do right now is to look at the House and flip it and then if possible, flip the Senate. That’s the only way we’re going to stop the President from doing what he wants to do.
Pam Zidik organized this group in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Pam Zidik: I’m hopeful. Initially with the shock and everything, everyone was like gung ho. My level of hope is probably medium high that people will come out and vote and will make a difference this time.
They hope to translate enthusiasm and anger into votes but aren’t quite so willing to declare victory on the front end.
Caller: You guys will be coming out together right?
Rogettsot: I’m definitely hopeful. You know, one of the things I tell people especially those who like to go to the protests and the marches and activities is the next march we have to plan is the one to the ballot box. But you know, you never know until that day. So I’m not going to take it for granted. I think as a party we took 2016 for granted we saw that result.
The Harrisburg group has made a particular effort to engage young voters this year, but until election day, they won’t know if the effort pays off.

It was a terrible mistake for the GOP not to challenge the outcome of the 2018 election. Long before the polls closed the results were favoring Democrats. Initially the nationwide map was predominantly red when suddenly the numbers started to increase as rapidly as the computerized gas pumps favoring the Democrats while ex post facto, Nancy Pelosi stood with her Cheshire Cat grin pointing to all the states that suddenly turned from red to blue. The Democrats did not "win" the House. They hijacked it. They think nothing of shredding our Constitution yet without reserve they weaponize it to advance their agenda.
For the past three years America has suffered the ruthless, violent, demoniac attacks of a political party that has sold it's soul to the devil: victory over integrity. They think nothing of disgracing themselves and nothing of disgracing our country and putting us in harms' way. Michelle Obama once said, "When they go low, we go high." It looks more like when they go low, they GET high.
Meanwhile, green is the new red, and most of those salivating over the prospect of impeachment, those now protesting all of the harmful effects of EMF, radiofrequency, wireless technology, and all the rest of the horrors our globalist Green New Deal are bringing upon us to advance the sinister UN Agenda 2030 (include the pontiff in that junta) are utterly poisoned by the green Kool Aid they are punch drunk on. Little do they realize that now they must learn how to control the mighty commercial forces they themselves have called into being. This was a statement from a speech given by Theodore Roosevelt titled "The New Nationalism."
At any cost, the Democrats are absolutely determined to advance the New World Order communist agenda. It is not air pollution we suffer from; it is moral pollution. The evil unchained in this nation is unfathomable. Saul Alinsky's "Rules For Radicals" is their vade mecum yet they think nothing of blaspheming our God. It is too hideous for words, all of it. The stupidity of the leftist sycophants is astonishing, and many of them hold PhDs.
God bless President Trump and God bless America. May Jezebel be eaten by the dogs and Satan's head crushed once and for all. God please help us.
