Today is the Christian holiday of the Epiphany. However, we will get a heavy helping of politics for our feast. Already this morning, Vice President Harris compared last Jan 6 political riot to Pearl Harbor, and 9/11.
She’s not very intelligent is she?
Biden gave a speech and endorsed the nationalization of elections. That’s unconstitutional. In Section 1 of the Constitution, states are given the responsibility for elections. The Founders knew that a tyrannical centralized government could screw things up. Chuckie Schumer is trying to nationalize elections because he knows in a competitive contest, Democrats cannot win given the platform they are running on.
The left-wing thinks this is the most unimaginable thing that could ever happen and a threat to democracy. They conveniently forget how the Democrats tried to torpedo past elections and in the 2020 election totally changed the rules to allow fraud to happen. Joe Biden doesn’t win if there are no mail-in ballots.
There are people on the far right wing today criticizing Senator Ted Cruz who yesterday called it a violent insurrection. The far right wing is wrong in this case. There was violence. Ashley Babbit was murdered by Capitol Police.
I would hope that we would all agree on a couple of things. First, it’s okay for American citizens to take to the streets in non-violent protest. That’s what 99.9% of the people who were in Washington DC last January 6th did. Second, it’s not okay to break into buildings and vandalize things when you protest.
No doubt, there are double standards. When Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA rioted this summer all standards were different. Life isn’t fair and if you are looking for fair, you won’t get it until you pass away.
Thomas Jefferson was painfully aware of what a tyrannical government could do to its citizens. He endorsed the French Revolution. What he didn’t see coming was the Jacobin movement. We have new Jacobins on the left today that use social media as their guillotine. They cut off the ability of people they disagree with to make a living in a lot of cases. All you have to do is look at what leftist activists and NASCAR are doing to Brandon. They eliminated the ability for him to get sponsorship. He got LGBcoin as a sponsor and NASCAR approved it. Then, NASCAR pulled the rug out from under him.
The left doesn’t even acknowledge that it was the heavily biased NBC reporter who started the whole thing by trying to “make news” instead of simply ignoring the “Fuck Joe Biden” chants of the crowd and doing her interview with Brandon.
Yesterday, I read an interesting piece about the inability of the US to get a national divorce. My question is this. At what point is it okay for citizens to violently overthrow a tyrannical government? How much tyranny and disfunction are citizens supposed to tolerate?
The two opposing sides are far apart. There can be no compromise with socialists and communists. They compose 40% of the Democratic Party. We disagree with the principles our country was even founded on. The 1619 Project is a fictitious, racist, organization full of falsehoods. Yet, that’s what is being advanced by the left. By the way, look to 1776 Unites for the real story.
When I look at America’s cities they are hell-holes and totally dysfunctional. What’s going on in my hometown of Chicago today is horrible. It’s impossible to carry out normal life there with the threat of crime, and the dysfunction of government institutions. San Francisco is worse. LA is horrible. Is that enough for citizens to violently overthrow sitting elected officials? The government officials have totally and in a lot of cases, deliberately, ruined a generation of children with Covid policy. Why do people and businesses in those towns even pay taxes to a government that cannot govern?
I don’t think anyone would agree on where the line should be drawn. It’s like a demand curve and it is different for everyone.
However, if we don’t have free and fair elections and we continue to see fraud, that’s a pretty clear line. Where I come from in Chicago, first the Democrats committed fraud and stole elections. Then, they institutionalized it to make fraud legal.
The first step might be elected officials in states simply ignoring the “rules”. One of the first steps might be that elected officials no longer remit tax dollars to a tyrannical centralized government. They might also put up a legal shield for their citizens so their citizens and businesses don’t send or file any taxes as well. Instead of violence, use money.
When the tyrannical centralized can’t pay its bills, the house of cards falls. Bankruptcy is a great disinfectant, and the US government isn’t too big to fail.
Oh, and by the way it is pretty clear that the FBI played a role in stirring up violence for the "Insurrection". The FBI is a government institution that has failed us. It has too much power courtesy of the Patriot Act, which should be repealed.
Also, Jan 6 was a false flag operation. The Left's modern version of the Reichstag Fire event. The FBI along with some of its hand picked operators within BLM and Antifa, orchestrated that event and roped in some too enthusiastic and very naive protestors.
The only violence perpetrated that day was by Capital Hill Police, FBI informers and so on. The actual protesters were simply on a glorified field trip.
This is why they won't show the 14K hours of video that exists. But I can guarantee that that video will NOT exist much longer, if it still does. It will get "lost" or "copied over" or whatever.
You have to ask, why are there only a wee few R's in either house who are calling out this operation? Why only a couple like Jim Jordan and MTG who are speaking up for the 700 political prisoners kept in horrific conditions? They are LITERALLY political prisoners!!! Don't believe that?
Take a look at what the judges ask them when they are permitted to appear in court. They demand that they repudiate their politics. That they renounce Trump. That is LITERALLY the definition of a political prisoner.
We are NOT turning into a banana republic. We are way past that. We are in Soviet Union/RedChiCom territory.
