This is no longer about Donald Trump or anyone else the Far Left Crazy, aka the Democrat Party, wants to impeach: they’ve got quite a little list.
No. It’s about how our country is to be governed from now on—by laws, due process, and respect for the American people, or by savage partisanship, irregular and unpredictable procedures, and intimidation.
Attorney General William Barr last week gave a hard-nosed speech on this subject, calling out “the Resistance” for its continual attempts “to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch and his [President Trump’s] administration.”
The name they give themselves, “the Resistance,” tells you all you need to know. In their own minds, they’re smoking a last cigarette, saying “no” to the offer of the blindfold, and then defiantly singing “Le Marseilles” as the Nazi firing squad takes aim. That’s how they see themselves. Oh—and we’re the Nazis. Everyone who isn’t them is a Nazi.
To claim, as they do, that our current government “is not legitimate,” Barr said, is “a very dangerous and indeed incendiary notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic.” The Congressional Democrats’ “avalanche of subpoenas is plainly designed to incapacitate the executive branch and is indeed touted as such.”
They couldn’t have made their purpose any clearer; and their tactics are “a scorched-earth, no-holds-barred war of resistance against this administration… No other president has been subjected to such sustained efforts to debilitate his agenda,” the attorney general said. The Left finally finds something that’s “sustainable”—and it’s dirty politics.
Progressives, Barr said, treat their politics as their religion, and “their holy mission” is “to use the coercive power of the State to remake man and society in their own image, according to an abstract ideal of perfection… by any means necessary.” They’re always trying to drag us kicking and screaming into their hellish fake utopia—with never much to show for it but piles of dead bodies and barbed wire strewn all over the landscape.
Our free and independent nooze media, an apparatus of the Democrat Party, was quick to brand the speech as “partisan”—as if they ever say or do anything that is not flagrantly partisan—and “outrageous,” as if the Far Left loons in Congress are ever anything but outrageous. Then they wail and gnash their teeth because we don’t believe them anymore.
But Mr. Barr has hit the nail on the head; and if we had any sense at all, we’d listen to him. If these wicked persons get away with this bogus impeachment caper, if they go unpunished by the voters in the next election, they will be encouraged to do it again. And again. And no president will ever be safe again from a hyper-partisan Congress that flouts due process and makes up their procedures as they go along.
This is how we wind up with a country where we’re all Brett Kavanagh: where no evidence is needed to convict us because the accusation is the evidence.
Somewhere along the way, despite the best and wisest efforts of our country’s founders, our public servants have become our masters. They come to Capitol Hill poor and go home rich. It’s a perpetual party up there, banquet time on Mount Olympus—all at our expense. If Donald Trump has done nothing else, he has at least proved that the Deep State, unspeakably corrupt and lawless to a fault, is real—with its fangs buried in the country’s neck.
It has to be stopped, or we will lose our republic.
