The Democrat Party and their operatives continue to lie to us. We know they are lying, and they know we know their lying. And they continue lying to us in the form of unsupported narratives. We are told that our country is systemically racist, even though we are the least racist country in the world. The border crisis is Trumps fault, but we know Biden is the one that opened up the floodgates. Our police kill countless unarmed black men for no reason, when in fact only 9 unarmed black men, resisting arrest were killed in 2019. We are told the biggest danger to our Republic is White Supremacy, when we know it is ANTIFA, BLM, Progressive priorities, and China. With the economy roaring back, we are told that we need to spend another 4+ trillion dollars in borrowed money to stimulate the economy. We are told the covid-19 relief bill is necessary, but precious little in the bill has anything to do with covid relief, but instead mostly pork for Progressive states and a litany of Progressive causes unrelated to the pandemic. Then there is the “Infrastructure” bill that only uses a small amount of the spending on actual infrastructure, the rest going to a Progressive wish list of Socialist redistribution programs. They are attempting to make the “NEW GREEN DEAL” a reality, in the face of minimal support and sketchy evidence of it having any real effect on the environment. We are told this is and existential threat, and that could not be further from the truth, and the solution is more damaging than the supposed problem. I could go on, but in short, they are taking us down a road to perdition, and expecting us to follow them to the end!
It is like we are living in a dreary Soviet Union redux, except we are the Soviets. Democrats are on a race to fundamentally transform our nation into a “Socialist Paradise”, ensuring us that it will be different this time. We are lied to just like the Soviets did to their citizens. We are expected to believe their propaganda, or at least do nothing in its path. They know that their window to do this is quickly coming to an end, with the 2022 elections coming up, where they will undoubtedly suffer major setbacks in the House and Senate. Even without a mandate, they are marching all of us to a place where most of us do not want to go!
Their goal is to undermine our Constitutional rights, and to greatly increase the size and scope of the Federal Government. This could mean total control of our lives, from cradle to grave, and would undermine everything that the Constitution guarantees us, including our liberty. If they actually pull everything off the way they are planning, America as we know it will be dead forever.
We do not have to fall victim to their lies and power grab. We need to fight back by writing our state and federal representatives to let them know that we will not stand for this. We have to pressure them to fight for our country, our liberty, our very way of life! We need to do this now, and we also need to work to get patriot candidates elected in 2022. If we sit back and do nothing, they win.
The founding fathers of the United States of America were learned men. They studied the bible, and also studied the notable philosophers of their time. They read Nicolo Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, James Harrington, John Locke, Charles De Montesquieu, Thomas Paine, John Stuart Mill and others. From the wisdom of these works, they crafted a wonderful document, the United States Constitution, which guaranteed liberty for all, and an abundance of freedom that opened up the creative juices of all with ambition, eventually making their new country the greatest nation on earth.
The Constitution that they put together was a blueprint for limited government that honored not only the God given rights of men, but diffused and limited centralized power, giving the individual and their states more power than the Federal Government. Nothing like it had ever been seen, nor has been seen since. It established a Republic rather than a Democracy, in order to protect the individual’s rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Their main concern with a Democracy was that it had the effect of sublimating the individual to the collective (mob rule). The individual in a Republic is Supreme.
This way of life revolved around an educated populace, one that understood the founding principles, and adhered to them. Without that knowledge and adherence to the Constitution, the whole experiment could unravel. When walking out of the final day of the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin was asked a question by a lady: “What have we got, a Monarchy or a Republic? Franklin replied, A Republic if you can keep it!” Even Franklin had some doubt that this grand experiment would succeed!
Succeed it did, and the original 13 colonies evolved into the most successful and powerful country in the world! People from all around the world fought to get to the USA, and once they were here, they readily assimilated into the melting pot of America, proud to be citizens of the United States of America!
World War I came around, and after a time the United States joined the allies to win it! With its supreme manufacturing power to resupply the allies, and hundreds of thousands of fresh fighting men crossing the Atlantic to join them, Germany surrendered. This is the time that the USA came of age, and was recognized as an economy and a military that surpassed all others.
As the USA’s economy eclipsed all others on the planet, there were dark clouds on the horizon. In 1929 the stock market collapsed. Prices collapsed because of the imbalance of the supply side with new forms of manufacturing, and half of all workers in the country were out of work.
President Franklin Roosevelt was subsequently elected, and he greatly expanded the reach and scope of the Federal Government over American lives. Many agencies were formed, and the Federal Government was now growing like a weed. Public works projects and other Federally funded employment were greatly expanded, and this did put some of the laid off workers back in the workforce, but it did not end the depression, which lasted until 1939. Only World War II could end the depression, and our entry into the war put all back to work, either in the military or in support jobs for the war effort. Although President Roosevelt was of a mind that something had to be done to eliminate the suffering caused by the depression, its unintended consequence was that by greatly expanding the Federal Government, the individual was shrunken, and the collective was now starting to become the norm.
World War II was won, with American manufacturing and military taking a front seat for that victory. Our economy boomed back, not only because of its capacity to produce goods, but also because our production capacity was one of the only ones that was not decimated by the war. There was a period of unequalled prosperity from the end of the war that lasted for decades, and we shared our prosperity with the world at large.
Federal Government expansion continued under President Lyndon Johnson. His “Great Society” program was a huge federal overreach that created countless entitlements for those that were in poverty, and created new agencies that oversaw the programs put in place. It was to have ended poverty as we know it, but in spite of spending trillions of dollars, it did not have any effect on poverty rates, and had the unintended consequence of destroying family units in order to qualify for these benefits. That created a vast underclass of people that still to this day are dependent on the government for their sustenance.
With the exception of Presidents Reagan and Trump, who attempted to shrink bureaucracy, every succeeding President created and expanded an alphabet of government agencies, programs, and regulations. The current President, Biden, is now on the cusp of greatly expanding an already bloated and overreaching Federal Government. He and his administration are following the Saul Alinsky playbook on “How to Create a Socialist State”. Listed below is his playbook:
“There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist state. The first is most important.”
Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people. (re-instituting Obamacare, single payer system in the works)
Poverty – Increase the poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you’re providing everything to live. (Proposed tax increases, trillions being spent on left wing programs with borrowed money, causing eventual out of control inflation, expanding on the corona virus narrative)
Debt – Increase debt to an unsustainable level, that way you are able to greatly increase taxes, and that will create more poverty. (currently at $30 Trillion and climbing fast, also think “Green New Deal” that is being disguised as the infrastructure bill, refer to tax bill proposal)
Gun Control – Remove people’s ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state. (Gun control measures now being implemented by executive orders, and being considered by Congress)
Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives. (Latest corona virus bill expanding unemployment benefits, food banks, etc.…)
Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school. (Common core, civics and history not being taught, Universities controlled by leftists, MSM’s controlled by leftists, Hollywood controlled by leftists)
Religion – Remove the belief in God from the government and schools. (Already done)
Class warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take over the wealthy with the support of the poor. (See proposed tax bill, black VS white, white VS Asian, police VS black, etc.….)
The Biden administration is following this playbook, and if they succeed, our experiment in being a Democratic Republic will finally come to an end. We need to fight hard to ensure that he does not succeed! Let your representatives at the Federal and State level know that we all are taking these moves seriously and implore them to join the fight to keep our country and our Constitution. Let’s do everything that we can to disprove Benjamin Franklin’s doubts! We must keep our Republic! We cannot lose our freedom and our God given rights!
We have seen a reckless move to the far left from the Biden Administration. Over 50 executive orders dismantling the Trump quest to control the border, a gun grab, a move to impose damaging regulations to business, giving special rights to minorities and transsexuals, and a host of other left-wing wish lists. That’s not all!
Biden recently signed into law, without any Republican support using the reconciliation clause to Senate rules, the “American Rescue Plan Act” sold as a covid-19 stimulus bill to rescue an already self-correcting economy. Eligible taxpayers would be getting a $1400 stimulus check, and even more if it includes other family members. This part of this behemoth 1.9 trillion-dollar bill costs taxpayers $422 billion dollars for their stimulus checks, or approximately 22% of the total bill. The rest of the bill deals with nothing other than Progressive pork, and relief for poorly managed blue cities and states that have not managed their own budgets properly for many decades. It is an expensive waste, one that if it were the entire GDP of most 1st world countries, it would be #8 on the list. This is an unneeded bill that our great grandchildren will be paying for.
The economic madness does not stop with the American Rescue Plan Act! Biden is now promoting his $2.25 trillion Build Green Infrastructure Act. Only about $621 billion will go towards what we currently define as infrastructure, the rest will go for mostly a modified version of the “Green New Deal”, pushing electric cars, busses and trucks, and other initiatives that are in no way related to “infrastructure”. This is another very expensive Act, and if passed in its totality, will be pushed through as a “reconciliation bill” not requiring a single Republican vote. We are being told that even though there is only 1 reconciliation bill allowed per year according to Senate rules, they are just going to change that rule and ram this one through.
And there is much more to this out-of-control spending spree. Biden is now getting ready to ask for another $1 trillion dollars for child care, health care and a litany of other left-wing wishes. I wonder if this will call for another Senate rule change expanding the reconciliation rule, as this one will never pass the smell test with Republican Senators.
This will be over $4 trillion dollars that we don’t have, and we are only 3 months into his Presidency. I wonder what our fiscal debt will be after 4 years of “Progressive” leadership? How much borrowing is too much? How much printing of worthless money can take place before our dollar is worthless?
How does Biden say we will pay for all this spending? Tax corporations much more, tax the “rich” much more, but supposedly it will not touch the middle class? Corporations do not pay tax, they simply raise prices, lower wages, and lower investment in expansion and R&D to pay for the additional cost, which translates to higher prices, higher interest rates, and higher inflation, which is the hidden tax on the middle class, who will have to live with these changes. Another unintended consequence to raising the corporate tax is that we will now be taxing these companies at a much higher rate than other international companies, putting them at a global trade disadvantage. People making over $400,000 per year also contribute to the plight of the middle class, being that many of these people are small business owners who will also cut payrolls and business investment to make up for the higher tax, thereby squeezing the unskilled worker out of jobs. This is bad policy intended to fund even worse policies, and it will hurt all of us, regardless of income.
There are bills on the table that would damage States rights to regulate their own voting systems, which is a Constitutional right. These bills, HR1 and S1would federalize all elections, and embed all the bad practices of the 2020 election into codified law. It also contains provisions to make DC and Puerto Rico states, effectively making the USA a one-party state, as these two territories are heavily Democratic in their voting patterns, and we are evenly split right now along party lines. This may be a stretch, as it would have to have a 60 Senate vote consensus, but have no fear, the Democrat controlled Senate is designing a rule change to get rid of the filibuster, so they can jam it through without any Republican votes in an evenly divided Senate, with Kamala Harris as the tie breaker.
Biden does not stop here! Now he is putting together a commission that will give him and the Senate recommendations on how to pack the Supreme Court, the last bastion of protection we have from Progressive over-reach. It is the Democrats design to blow up the court so that rulings will always favor them, cementing the one-party state throughout perpetuity. They do not want a “balance of power”, but instead they are doubling down on getting permanent power over all of us.
Isaiah was a Hebrew prophet that lived in Israel in 800BC. He proclaimed to be the prophet of warning from God to a Godless people. The warning was that the Israelite’s had to have an awakening, a turning back from their evil ways to God, or God would not protect them from the Assyrians. The “evil ways” were not terribly different from what is happening in America and for that matter the Western World. There was a worship of riches over God, a broken value system that honored perversions and falsehoods over the word of the Lord, and a turning away from all that which is righteous. People there still honored empty ceremonies of sacrifice to their God, but did not live a Godly life. The rulers of Northern Israel were evil and treacherous, and had no use for their own creator.
The Israelite’s did not listen to Isaiah, and the Assyrians conquered and destroyed Northern Israel, and scattered the 10 tribes (considered the lost tribes) all over their Empire, and they were absorbed into the greater Assyrian Society, and then Northern Israel was repopulated by Assyrians. This is not only a bible story, but an accurate historical account. The moral is once a nation turns away from the one true God, they are no longer under his protection.
In America today, Christianity and Judaism are under attack. Church and Temple attendance is down, and the moral code in our country is gravitating to honor possessions rather than God. Our elected officials are making executive orders and passing laws that go directly against the rule of God. Late term abortions, and honoring those who would mutilate their bodies in a feeble attempt to change their sex is now being codified. Teaching our children that there are over 64 different genders in public schools is a common practice. Denigrating the white race, and teaching about toxic masculinity is the order of the day in our schools. Our President and the Democrat Party inviting Central Americans to traverse over 1000 miles through a dangerous Mexico to enter our country illegally, with many of them abused and assaulted by cartels is now commonplace. Politicians robbing generations of Americans of their wealth with uncontrolled borrowing in the name of “social justice” is the order of the day. Worshiping the environment over God is the political rule. Valuing money over God is common practice. Broken families are now a norm.
Like Israel in 800 B.C., we have turned away from our creator. We also have a similar problem, and that is our enemies see that we now are weak in our path, and they are willing and able to take advantage of us losing our way. Vladimir Putin is openly making fun of our weak and cognitively declining President. He is now massing troops on the Ukraine border, and likely will attack any day. China’s trade delegation openly disparaged our country when discussing issues with our new Secretary of State and his team. China and Russia are doing joint military training exercises, and both countries are now allied with Iran, another enemy and the #1 sponsor of terror in the world. All 3 of these countries have a vested interest in our destruction. We are in a bad place, with no moral center, and with incompetent leadership devoid of any real spiritual substance.
We need a Great Awakening, and we need one fast! We need to find our way back to God, back to a life of righteousness! We have done this here before, and we need to do it again. If we do not, Isaiah may have been not only talking about the Northern tribes of Israel, but about us, the former “Shining City on the hill”.
Throughout history poor leadership inevitably leads to a path of decline and destruction. The Roman Empire in the west declined for many reasons, but one of the main ones was lack of leadership. One example of poor leadership was the Emperor Nero, who famously fiddled while Rome burned. He was famous for his debauchery and lack of concern for his citizens. He represented a long line of ineffective leaders who eventually led to the dissolution of the Western Roman Empire. It got so bad near the end that citizens refused to fight for Rome, and mercenaries had to be hired for security. Rome’s enemies saw firsthand the lack of leadership. These mercenaries eventually were part of the invasion force of the Goths and Visigoths who finally put the Western Empire down.
The French Monarchy saw revolution and their own eventual demise for their lack of leadership. King Louis XVI and his Queen, Marie Antoinette, were installed as rulers of France in 1774. The monarchy inherited severe debt from their predecessors and a restless population that felt they were not treated well with this ancient feudal system. They tried to press the King for substantive change, but the King resisted, and his lack of leadership at this crucial moment in time lead to revolution and the monarchies overthrow, and in time with both he and his queen were delivered to the guillotine. A reign of terror followed, where many thousands of Frenchmen were sent to the same deadly fate. It took years, and finally Napoleon Bonaparte’s coup to end the killings.
Great Britain in the 1930’s had a Prime Minister named Neville Chamberlain. During this same period, Adolph Hitler came to power, his NAZI regime energized by the ending of WW1, followed by Germany’s surrender and the infamous treaty of Versailles. This treaty in effect ruined any recovery for Germany from this devastating war by gutting their treasury for many years and hobbling them economically and militarily. Hitler took advantage of this terrible situation to rise to power with the idea that Germany would take over Europe and eventually the world. Prime Minister Chamberlain and other European leaders, remembering the horrors of the last war, took on the position of appeasement with Hitler, allowing him to take over Czechoslovakia and other territories unopposed. Their weakness drove Hitler to believe that they would do nothing to stop his plans for future expansion, driving the appeasers and eventually the rest of the world to war. Once again, Germany lost, but not before millions lost their lives, and the Western European powers lost their Imperial dynasties.
Weakness is recognized by evil. Terrible events happen when evil is on the march, and their target is always the same, weakness. The Roman Empire fell from their own weakness. The French Monarchy did the same, and Western European countries were essentially destroyed and their colonies were lost because of their weakness. Weakness breeds evil response, and evil only succeeds when they take advantage of that situation. It has happened throughout human history, and I have given you several examples of that.
That brings the conversation to the USA today. We have a weak, doddering President, obviously controlled by others unseen. He has made in his first 50 days, unprecedented executive orders that weaken us as a nation, not only in our eyes, but in the eyes of the international community. He is signing into law bills that further denigrate our society, dividing us into even more sub-groups of victimization. Our international enemies see this, and so do our allies. Our allies no longer trust the leadership coming from Washington, and our enemies see an unprecedented opportunity to dethrone us from our leadership position in the world. The world is an exponentially more dangerous place now than it was just a few short months ago.
Vladimir Putin is now mocking Joe Biden. The Chinese delegation that met with our top diplomats in Alaska publicly dismissed them and mocked our country as a flawed enterprise. Iran has snubbed Biden’s overture to rejoin the past nuclear agreement, and other enemies are following suit! Not only that, but our allies are having second thoughts about our veracity.
Yes, we are in the midst of very dark, dangerous times. We appear very weak as a nation, and that is an invitation for disaster. The left, at least temporarily have operational control of our government and the direction of our nation. We have to pray that we do not get into a war, or have irrevocable damage to our form of government. Prayer alone is not enough, we as a people have to resist by insisting that our representatives, nationally, statewide and locally honor their sworn duty to our Constitution. We also have to find better candidates for the 2022 election and beyond to insure that this weakness never rears its ugly head again here in this greatest country that has ever existed!
We have had Joe Biden as our President for 55 days. In that same timeframe, he has signed at least 55 executive orders and proclamations. Here is a list of some of the most far-reaching ones: Key Biden executive actions
When looking at these executive orders and proclamations, one has to note that not only has he signed more orders in 55 days than his last 3 predecessors combined in that same period of time. He has effectively blown-up immigration law, muddied up the corona virus operation “warp speed” initiative, took steps to ensure that our future energy independence would be in doubt, weakened our military, and put our national security at risk by reopening unrestricted travel to and from countries that actively harbor terrorists. In effect, most of these orders affect all Americans. Any Executive Order that has any effect on individuals that are not government employees is a violation of Article I Section 1 of the Constitution. Whenever the President issues an Executive Order that extends to all of the people, Congress and the states have a responsibility to the people to reject them. When a President issues an unconstitutional Executive Order and Congress allows the order to stand, they are violating their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, and they are ignoring them on purpose. Most of these orders and proclamations are patently unconstitutional, and should be ignored and put to the constitutional test in the court system.
The unconstitutional activity does not stop with the Biden regime, but one has to take a hard look at the Congress. HR1 is an abomination. It unconstitutionally takes the managing of elections from the state, and would if passed embrace all of the unconstitutional excesses seen in the last election. It is a blatant power grab by the democrats to ensure that our country becomes and stays a 1-party state.
Then we can take a look at HR1319, dubiously named the “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021”. This was sold to the American public as a corona virus relief bill, but it is anything but that. Only 9% went to direct payments to Americans, and even then, the money went to many people that did not need it or should not have been eligible for it. Illegal Aliens were also given this stimulus, and big bonuses were paid to federal employees that had to home school children because of corona virus shutdowns. The other 91% of the money went to a dream list of Progressive Democrats, rewarding those that support them without any regard to corona virus relief, and funding a variety of very unpopular programs for years on end. This is a 1.9 trillion-dollar boondoggle, and a big overreach for the Democrats who passed this without any bipartisan support. This recently was also passed in the Senate also without any bi-partisan support and signed into law by President Biden. How is that for bringing a divided nation together?
It doesn’t stop there! HR8 and HR127 are also on the Congressional docket. These two bills are a direct infringement on the Second Amendment of the Constitution. They would have the effect of making the ownership of firearms much more difficult for a law-abiding citizen, and would have no effect on armed criminal activity. This too is another Progressive Democrat unconstitutional overreach that would have nothing less than a negative affect on the safety of law-abiding citizens, and both need to be defeated!
The President is in direct violation of Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution of the United States. The Congress is in direct violation of Article 1, section 8 of the Constitution. The “Necessary and Proper” clause in the Constitution found in Article I Section 8 was not intended to give Congress the authority to do whatever they felt was a good idea. This clause meant that they had the authority to pass any legislation that was necessary and proper to implement the powers delegated to the United States Congress in Article I Section 8 of the Constitution. They are not delegated powers to go against the Constitution, and neither is the President. As long as they control the legislative and executive branches, they will continue with this behavior. Our best chance to reign this lawlessness in is with the court system, and that balance of power too is in jeopardy!
The Democrat controlled Congress has expressed the desire to “pack” the Supreme Court if they do not rule in their favor. Packing would mean that partisan judges would be added to the courts by the Democrat Senate to ensure that all decisions would favor Progressive wishes, instead of the Constitution. We have seen numerous occasions where SCOTUS has refused to hear cases that may upset these out-of-control legislators. If cases of unconstitutional executive actions and legislation go up to SCOTUS, will they find the courage to hear them, or will they buckle to the threat of court packing? Only time will tell….
There is another remedy, and this remedy will take us all to push our state governors and legislatures to ignore laws and executive orders that are unconstitutional. Texas and Oklahoma are already on board with this, but in order for it to be effective, there has to be a quorum of states resisting these unconstitutional actions. We cannot let this lawlessness stand, and if we do not resist their overreach, we will be in danger of losing our country. Send e-mails and make calls to your state politicians, let them know it is in their hands to make this right.
The Preamble of our Constitution is very specific:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” https://constitution.congress.gov/constitution/
This beginning statement points out just what our founding fathers intended for our government. They wanted a just government that had the welfare of citizens in mind. It highlighted the necessity of Liberty and the importance of defending our freedom. With this in mind, they put together a system of government meant to do just that, and those elected to implement this system were to be public servants, elected by the people that they would swear to represent.
These were wise men, who knew the danger of tyranny, so they put together a triad of governance. The Executive in the Presidency, the Congress for lawmaking and dispersing funding and collecting taxes, and the Judicial branch, all which were to be checks on one another. They put together a relatively simple, but highly functional system of governance, with a Constitution delineating what powers each branch has, what powers the states have, and most necessarily, what powers government does not have. The rights of the individual were paramount to their thinking.
With the Democrats now running 2 out of 3 branches of government, it seems that the Constitution no longer matters. Congress has started their new session with HR 1, a bill that would enshrine every bad practice experienced in battle ground state voting in the past national election by making those bad practices the law of the land. This bill is a total mess, and it is getting even messier as S 1, the Senate version of the house bill. It would ensure that Democrats would maintain power ad infinitum, and would be the destruction of the 2-party system as we know it. https://legiscan.com/US/drafts/HR1/2021
Congress has also threatened to “pack” the Supreme Court, because they believe that the current membership leans conservative and they want that to be rectified with new liberal judges that will not offer a check on their power grab. The mere threat has effectively neutered the Supreme Court as a check on the balance of power, as the current Supreme Court Judges are treading lightly on what they will hear in their purview. Anything that would find ire with the Democrat Congress is largely left alone with the hope that they do not blow up the court with new partisan judges.http://ballot-access.org/2021/02/22/u-s-supreme-court-refuses-to-hear-many-lawsuits-filed-by-former-president-trump-and-the-republican-party-over-the-2020-election/
The Congress also had one last fling with past-President Trump, impeaching him in the House and having a Senate “show trial” without witnesses or any real evidence. That went no-where, but was their parting shot with “The Donald” who had the audacity to point out their corruption for all to see. They have in effect weaponized the impeachment process, making it a partisan weapon rather than a stopgap for an errant Presidency. https://time.com/5939232/senate-acquits-donald-trump-second-impeachment-trial/
Joe Biden started his tenure with equal enthusiasm. So far, Biden has signed more than 50 executive actions in less than 2 months, 22 of which are direct reversals of Trump’s policies. Most of these actions have addressed the CCP coronavirus, immigration and equity. Now he has mandated masking on all Federal properties, open borders once again, reviving “catch and release”, and a flurry of orders granting special rights to outside the mainstream groups, with one example of transgenders being able to compete in collegiate sports alongside of women. He has also indicated that he has directed his Justice department and intelligence agencies to focus on “domestic terrorism”, with persons of interest being Trump supporters and conservatives, all this in the name of “equity”? https://www.businessinsider.com/biden-executive-orders-actions-search-all-2021-1?op=1
Public servants are who these elected officials are supposed to be. They are there to promote our liberty, our prosperity, and our tranquility. It is evident that they do not take their “mission statement” seriously. Instead, they are acting like Royalty, with the thought that it is we, the citizens of America that owe them allegiance. They have elevated themselves to being our King and princes, with us in their servitude. We, the people, are now on dangerous ground, and we need strong leadership to once again find our way back to being a constitutional Republic. Benjamin Franklin worried about getting to this place: “Franklin was walking out of Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when someone shouted out, “Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?”
To which Franklin responded, with a rejoinder at once witty and ominous: “A republic, if you can keep it.” It is up to us. We fight to keep it, or tyranny wins. Which will it be patriots?
Joe Biden promised us he would bring our country together, but to date he has done anything but that. He has opened the borders, reinstated “catch and release” without any health testing, let men play women’s sports, taken steps to insure we will not be energy independent for very long, and has effectively killed hundreds of thousands of jobs. He has also begun embracing a modified version of the “Green New Deal”, rejoined the Paris Climate Accord, rejoined the WHO, and has made overtures to Iran about re-entering the Iran Nuclear Deal. Three weeks in, he has done all of this not by going to Congress to get bi-partisan support, but by executive action.
He has also embraced the 2nd Trump Impeachment, saying that although he was exonerated by the Senate, he calls the charge of “Insurgency” as something that is not in dispute. It appears that along with the rest of his party, he is hell bent on destroying not only Donald Trump’s legacy, but the man himself. No holds barred, the Democrats will continue to come after President Trump with all guns still blazing, regardless of the truth. Next step will be the 14th Amendment, which has the possibility of eliminating the threat of Donald Trump ever running again for President, that is, if they can prove he started and is responsible for Insurrection. It will not work, but that is where the next move will be.
They will also attempt to Censure him in both houses. It is an attempt to ruin his reputation, but will not preclude him from running for office in 2024. They hope that will put him in a tenuous position where he will not consider doing so. Will they stop there? Think again!
The Democrats are now sharpening their pencils writing briefs to both civil and criminal courts to try DJT for various supposed crimes. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has an active criminal investigation into Trump and his businesses. The exact contours of the probe are not clear, but court papers suggest he’s investigating possible insurance or financial fraud. On top of that, the most developed case that could ensnare Trump might be out of the Southern District of New York. It stems from the federal prosecution against Michael Cohen, Trump’s onetime personal attorney and fixer.
Cohen pleaded guilty to a range of crimes, including arranging illegal hush money payments to keep women silent during the 2016 campaign about extramarital affairs they say they had with Trump before he was president. Trump has denied the allegations.
The Democrats will not stop there. The state attorney general, Letitia James, is conducting a civil investigation into the Trump businesses. James is looking into whether the Trump Organization improperly inflated the value of its assets for loan or insurance purposes, and then deflated the value for tax purposes.
He also faces defamation lawsuits filed by two women who say he sexually assaulted them — allegations he denies. While Trump doesn’t face criminal liability in those suits, he does face potential damage to his reputation and financial repercussions.
The lawsuits will continue, with or most likely without any merit. They will only stop with a political calculation that President Trump will not run again. Until then, stay tuned, it is going to get crazier and crazier, and for President Trump, his post-Presidency legal bills will be enormous.
Is any of this unifying? No, exactly the opposite. The left is using their nuclear option with Donald Trump, and by default with anyone that has, or still does support him. President Biden is in the process of directing our Intelligence agencies to assist in his “War on Domestic Terror”. In effect, he has identified the 74+ million voters that voted for Trump as the target of the investigation. We, along with President Trump are in for a very rough ride, at least for 2 more years! Nothing unifying about that!
From a realistic standpoint, what can we as citizens do? First and foremost, we need election integrity. Each state has their own system for elections, and we know those systems, at least in some swing states, have been broken. We need to push our state legislatures to find a fix for what is broken, and implement said fix before the mid-terms. We also need to take control of local politics. Pay attention to our school districts, run and if you can’t support candidates that are of like mind. City and state elections need us to participate not only as voters but as candidates and/or supporters of candidates that are close to our political minds. We also need to primary officials that do not adequately represent us with candidates that will. It will take work, but if we put our minds to it, we will prevail!
We are told that the Keystone pipeline had to be cancelled for environmental reasons. “The Permit is hereby revoked,” Biden’s executive order says. “Leaving the Keystone XL pipeline permit in place would not be consistent with my Administration’s economic and climate imperatives.” Now that’s a very powerful statement, but what does it really mean? Is there a well thought out plan, or is this just more corruption from a man known to deliver if the money is right?
Economically, this cancellation will increase the cost of oil-based products to the consumer. Instead of piping this crude to refineries (830,000 barrels a day), the same amount of oil will have to continue to be shipped by rail and truck to its final destinations. It is estimated that the cost for this type of delivery system is approximately $10 per barrel, as opposed to $5 per barrel using the now defunct pipeline. It is hard to imagine that killing the pipeline was done for economic reasons, unless there is an alternate energy source that is cleaner and competitive with oil.
Could it be that windmills and solar are the answer to our future energy needs? Both are intermittent power sources that require intensive capital investment and are highly unreliable. It is estimated that power from these sources can only be counted on at peak demand 30% of the time, and hundreds of millions of acres of land would have to be devoted to the construction and maintenance of these forms of “green energy”, not to mention the massive amounts of raw materials required for production of these alternate energy sources. Further, it would cost us at least 10X the amount we currently spend on energy to switch to these alternative sources, so it doesn’t look like this is a sane approach to economic issues in our country. Short of green lighting nuclear power, it doesn’t look like alternate energy sources will ever make the cut with the state of our current or foreseeable future technology.
For climate imperatives? It is estimated that the earth has warmed approximately by 1 degree Celsius since the start of the Industrial Revolution, which began in 1760, or 260 years ago. We also know that the earth cools and warms as natural cycles over thousands of years. Is global warming a natural cycle? Or is global warming affected by human influence? What does the science say? Both may be true. In the natural cycle, the world can warm, and cool, without any human interference. For the past million years this has occurred over and over again at approximately 100,000 year intervals. About 80-90,000 years of ice age with about 10-20,000 years of warm period, give or take some thousands of years. There is healthy debate about human interference with this cycle, and the science is far from settled. The left would let us believe that in fact the science is settled, and hydrocarbon usage with its CO2 emitting is the direct result of warming we are experiencing. If that is true, and there is a load of empirical evidence that it is not, a case could be made that cancelling the project was done for environmental reasons, especially if the goal of zero CO2 emissions by 2050 is the goal that will solve the supposed human caused problem with global warming.
Maybe taking President Biden on his word is not the best way to understand why he cancelled the project, or for that matter why he has signed 40 executive orders in the first 9 days in office. Could there be another reason for his race to change things? Focusing on the pipeline, who would benefit most from the cancellation? Could it be Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, and the Burlington Northern Railroad? Currently, the Burlington Northern Railroad ships 100% of this oil by rail to destination, and it is a very profitable run for this business, as they are the only line that ships this oil to refineries. This business is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, a holding company controlled by Warren Buffett. Berkshire Hathaway also owns the company that produces oil tankers for rail, and has a virtual monopoly on this business. Warren Buffett donated $250,000 to Democrats on the 2020 election cycle. Other mega-donors, including CEO’s of fortune 100 companies donated millions to the Democrats and the Biden campaign, and were opposed to the pipeline. Could it be that Joe Biden is still playing the “pay to play” scam in the oval office? What about the other executive orders? Will we ever know?
NURSE RACHED, I’M READY FOR MY LOBOTOMY
We are told that a 78-year-old man with first stage senility got more votes than any other Presidential candidate and now will be our President, even though he campaigned in his basement? His running mate, a woman who could not muster over 2% of the votes in her Presidential primary race helped him in this historic victory? We are constantly remined by the bureaucracy that there was no election fraud, even though the evidence is in plain sight? The Democrats in Congress, hell bent on impeaching the current President the second time when his tenure in office ends in just a shade over a week? Big tech companies trying to eliminate free speech, not only on their platforms but by killing their competition, literally? Mega-corporations doubling down on efforts to control free speech and the general population? The Democrat party disparaging all patriots, while trying to sell the narrative of unity?
That’s not all, we are also told to socially distance, avoid crowds, and wear a mask or we most certainly will die of the deadly covid-19 virus, even though the death rate per 1000 has been steady for years? (In 2020, death rate for United States of America was 8.9 per 1,000 people. Death rate of United States of America fell gradually from 9.5 per 1,000 people in 1971 to 8.9 per 1,000 people in 2020-World Data AtlasUnited States of AmericaDemographics). We are told that we need to take a vaccine based on un-tested new technology in order to fight this deadly scourge? Yet, our homeless population, living in close quarters, not wearing masks or socially distancing, seem to be immune to this plague?
Yes, Nurse Rached, I’m ready for my lobotomy! Having all of my cognitive abilities is putting me in a very bad place. I cannot fathom the stupidity around me, and look forward to the peace that this operation will bring! Please schedule me right away!
