Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it.
For comparison’s sake, consider Biden and his family vs. President Trump and his family. Consider especially the intersection of their actions and how the Democrats and their media addressed said actions.
The differences are stark. Those same differences also give credence to the Dems’ claims that our very democracy is in jeopardy, but that the Dems are projecting their own guilt and the threat they pose to America upon President Trump., his family, and the 10’s of millions of patriots who supported and continue to support him.
That’s one of the biggest and most important, if not the biggest and most important, threats facing the Civilized, Free, Western World today – the blurred and biased line between facts and fiction today. Between the Lamestream Media’s Fake News and Social Media’s “Fact Checkers,” it’s largely impossible for anyone to distinguish between facts and fiction.
But then, this hellish situation should hardly be considered unexpected. After all, just as an informed Citizenry is necessary to Democracy, a misinformed Citizenry is needed for tyranny to sink its roots in society. And there are certain sorts who sorely desire such tyranny… for all the best reasons of course.
While it seems unlikely that the House Democrats will drag out their over-used and worthless impeachment proceedings against President Trump for doing his duty and nominating a replacement for the late and unlamented – by Americans at least – the damage has already been done. Pelosi and her ilk have, with their hate– and madness-fueled obsession with impeaching our President, have already done incalculable harm to our democracy.
But, rather than waxing vitriolic, I’ll just quote from The Portly Politico, who stated the problem as well or better than I would have.
The Democrats already cheapened impeachment with their bogus “Ukraine collusion” story. Technically, yes, the House can impeach a president at any time if they have the votes to do so. The prudence and dispassion of a prior age would normally have prevented such a drastic measure except in the most dire of constitutional circumstances—in other words, if the president actually abused his authority and the constitutional limits placed upon it.
Now, however, the Democrats have cheapened the impeachment process to such an extent that it’s nearly the equivalent of voting to name a federal post office after some uncontroversial small town hero or legendary civil rights figure: it’s just another day at the office.
If Speaker Pelosi and her ilk push through an impeachment against President Trump for fulfilling his constitutional duty and power to appoint a justice to the Supreme Court, the very act of impeachment will have lost all meaning. If President Trump were wantonly selling the Supreme Court seat to the highest bidder, then, by all means — impeach away! But he clearly isn’t.
Despite meeting the current at the time requirements for being included in the next Democrat Primary Debate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI 2nd ) has been forbidden to attend, the DNC having decided to change the criteria after Super Tuesday so as to exclude her. This, of course, is more than a little likely to come as a surprise to many who didn’t know that Gabbard was still in the race, which is, in and of itself, not shocking since the Democrat “Leadership” and their pet media has essentially redacted Tulsi Gabbard’s entire campaign.
Revenge Is A Bitch
What seems to have happened is that Gabbard found out the hard way that revenge is a bitch, a bitch named Hillary Clinton, the de facto ruler of the Democrat party at this time. After all, in the early parts of the race to see which Democrat would run against- and likely lose to President Trump, Gabbard was trending quite well. Then, Hillary Clinton proclaimed that Gabbard was a “Russian Asset.” At that point, both her DNC and the ever-dutiful Lamestream media not only turned their collective backs upon Gabbard but actively shut her out and went silent on her and her campaign.
Tulsi Gabbard had been a Vice Chair in the DNC, but she quit to support Bernie Sanders during the debacle that was the 2016 Democrat Primary “race.” That’s the exact sort of thing that Hillary remembers and gets revenge for.
Heretics Must Burn
Gabbard sin, beyond earning Hillary’s ire, was that she was and is a heretic. She has shown insufficient orthodoxy and compliance with the Dems’ dogma of impeaching President Trump via any means at their disposal.
Yeah, the heads of the Democrat party and their media didn’t much more than that to cast out Gabbard. They’re not the sort that tolerates such heresy.
Why It Sort Of Matters
As an American, the only reasons that the redaction of Tulsi Gabbard matters are that she was the most potentially dangerously Democrat candidate and she’s been removed and that the DNC’s and Lamestream Media’s doing so is a nadir of hypocrisy that bears mention.
So yes, I’m quite pleased that the organization running the elections for our domestic enemies chose to “erase” the candidacy of the one person on their side that I thought could be a credible threat. However …
Tulsi Gabbard should have, the Democrats’ own oft-ranted criteria, received far different and better treatment by them, especially at this time.
Gabbard is a woman. The last woman in the Dems’ primary race
Gabbard is a “Person of Color” by Dem standards. Again, the last one in the Dems’ primary race
Gabbard is a Hindu. She is, in fact, the 1st Hindu Presidential candidate
Yeah, if the Democrats were even a little close in their own behavior to what they claim to want everyone to do and believe, they probably wouldn’t have redacted Gabbard’s campaign and they certainly wouldn’t have cut her out of the remaining debates.
Is Democracy under threat? Yes, I’d say that we Americans’ democracy is currently under existential threat, but it’s not from President Trump, the GOP, or we Deplorables, the so-called dregs of society. No, the true and heinous threat to American’s democracy comes from Democrat politicians and their reliance upon Leftwing and Minority mobs and the Deep State to enact their will and vision upon the American people.
