With 2018 midterm elections less than a month away, a return to more representative, less lawless government hangs in the balance:
Trump won and the Republicans are (still) in control of both chambers of Congress, but neither the Democrats, the media, Hollywood, the universities, Silicon Valley, K Street, Wall Street, nor theadministrative (deep) state have accepted the election results. Quite the representative government and rule of law pummeling resistance. Hillary Clinton’s and Barrack Obama’s Saul Alinksy rules for radicals playbook in action. We see Alinksy’s mobster tactics at work everywhere. Perhaps the conviction that the left refuses to accept the 2016 election result is best captured thusly:
- The never-ending Trump Russian collusion witch hunt (if anyone colluded, it was felonious, traitorous Hillary Clinton — and I won’t mention Senator Feinstein’s Chinese chauffeur spy for some 20 years and all her and her husband’s crony Chinese deals). Mitch McConnell, are you listening? Apparently so, for suddenly you are no longer obstructing the good part of Trump’s agenda, but greasing the skids for it.
- The unending presidential impeachment threats despite Trump having violated no laws (again in stark contrast to many former Democratic power-brokers); if he had, Mueller’s band of high-powered Democratic operatives would have long discovered it.
- The absolutely outrageous, “11th hour,” unsupported, and thus concocted allegations of Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual abuse 36 years ago (concluding remarks section) amounted to an ultimately unsuccessful effort to sabotage the election of an originalist/rule of law judge to the US Supreme Court.
- The threats of impeachment against Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Thomas, should the Democrats retake the House, despite these justices’ impeccable lifelong records both on and off the bench.
- Top-tier de facto promotion of race-baiting, civil unrest, and/or criminal behavior, from Ferguson,Missouri to Baltimore, Maryland to elected Democratic officials both inside and outside the halls of Congress.
- And, if all else fails to “reverse the election” — 100% speculatively stated, but I believe rationally and fearfully so given “where we’re at” — then I wouldn’t put it past far-left Democrats, aligned with the deep state, to attempt to assassinate the very top national level Republican officials that are striving for a return to constitutional fidelity, both the elected and appointed variety. That is, should all other attempts to effectively reverse the 2016 election fail, they will seek to uproot (what remains) of the constitutional order, if necessary by execution. Why? Because that liberty-shielding governing blueprint, and the remaining allegiance to it, stand in the way of their despotic, collectivist path. This is why the left despises the Constitution. And this is why the constitutionalists that defend it must be “taken out” at any and all costs, by any means possible, from Trump, Kavanaugh, and Thomas character assassinations to the “real deal.” At the end of the day, a coup against the Constitution, a nearly dead letter which the left wants to keep down and shred completely, once and for all, is in their sights. They’ve been at it for over a century. And they’re not about to stop now. Which is what we are witnessing.
Perhaps the conviction that the left refuses to accept the 2016 election result AND what it has in mind is best summed up below:
Hillary Clinton: You ‘cannot be civil’ with Republicans, Democrats need to be ‘tougher’
WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton says the time for civility is over.
After the bitter and partisan fight over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate declared that President Donald Trump has undermined the integrity of the nation’s highest court and that it’s time for Democrats to be “tougher” with their opponents, in an interview with CNN published Tuesday. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,”Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”
A grassroots and — to a degree — a national look under the nation’s sputtering, atrophying, but still muscular foundational hood:
You may get a kick out of the images below. They are precisely the same, content-wise, as the posters that I took shots of early in the week just ended while I was substitute teaching a civics class (the kids weren’t too civil) at a school in SW Florida, where easily 75% plus of the student body is from south of the border, a good 30% – 40% of the kids don’t have a solid grasp of the English language, and about 10% – 15% spoke virtually no English!
The typical class composition (I had 4 different 1.5-hour long classes a day with 25 – 30 kids per class) makes trying to teach such a vital and complex subject (civics) “Mission Extremely Difficult” from the get-go — and I won’t go into other hindering issues likely stemming from the long-running decay of stable, nurturing, two-parent nuclear families, which would add copious to insult to injury. In any event, I did my level best for two days to “teach” an absolutely stellar topic, namely civics. Now to those images:
On the whole, the posters are pretty impressive starting points as regards key political concepts, especially their “less is more, here’s the beef” verbiage.
Caveats: the Bill of Rights abbreviations, as in the one-liners trying to do justice to the expansive 1st and 5th Amendments, leave something to be desired — yet the 9th Amendment “bottom line” (protects individual rights not listed) is very apt, in essence pointing a thoughtful, more knowledgeable, and interested reader toward the quintessence of the Declaration of Independence’s encompassing definition of personal freedom, something I even discussed briefly with an interested young man who noticed that the Bill of Rights poster had gotten my attention. Meanwhile, the (other) political ideologies poster(s) offered by the “less than ideal” www.teachersdiscovery.com source has varied definitional shortcomings. Case in point: the definition of fascism — you have two cows, the government takes both and shoots you — is clearly wrong. A fascist government still needs you to milk the cows and to keep the cows, yet it exclusively determines what is done with both the cows and to whom the milk may be sold. Under communism, the government not only determines what is done with the milk, but it also owns both the milk and the cows, i.e., it commandeers your property.
