by Peggy Ryan, American Thinker:
America is on the verge of sanctioning a socialist takeover of the greatest government ever established on the face of the Earth.
What are we doing about it? Are we in solidarity with our president, or are we tacitly admitting defeat in the midst of the battle? Are conservatives who criticize the president’s legal team, as Rush Limbaugh did, helping the president or the insurgents? Are those who say Georgia is now our only hope, the Senate our last chance, encouraging patriots or the enemy? The subliminal message is that we’ve already lost the White House, so the Senate is all we have left.

Why do so many feel defeated in the middle of the fight? For years, Americans have been beaten down, victims of emotional and psychological abuse by media. With continuous abuse, many succumb to learned helplessness, where an individual who “continuously faces a negative, uncontrollable situation stops trying to change [his] circumstances.” In other words, they give up.
The media’s abuse is wide-ranging, and their weapon of choice is gaslighting. They tell us we can’t believe our own eyes. Hillary did nothing wrong; there was no RussiaGate conspiracy to remove the president. Don’t believe stories of Biden using his son for money-laundering and kickbacks — not even if you’ve watched the video of Biden demanding a quid pro quo from Ukraine.
They gaslight us with polls to reinforce the coming election fraud. Polls are not only wrong, but ridiculous — Hillary a 15-point lead, Biden 15 points again, yet Trump trounced Hillary and, without fraud, Biden. They use polls to tell us what to think: “the majority of Americans don’t believe there was voter fraud”; therefore, neither should we.
One form of gaslighting, projection, is why we’re screaming at our TV’s, “That’s what they do.” The president’s been accused of interfering in an election, colluding with Russia, and extorting Ukraine, all crimes of the left.
These daily beatings inevitably take the fight out of Trump-supporters. Learned helplessness leads to a passive response to tyranny, a reluctance to actively engage the enemy. Add a cacophony of voices telling us to stand down:
- We‘re told to stand down and trust the press to safeguard our democracy. They‘ve been our watchdog for centuries; they‘ll sound the alarm if our government comes under attack.
- We‘re told to stand down and trust the system. Our republican form of government has withstood the test of time. The checks and balances of our system will fend off any attempt to defeat our republic, will survive any attack.
- We‘re told to stand down and trust our elected government. Though many if not most of these government officials have sold us out, are working with the enemy, they‘ll come through when our Constitution is under attack.
- We’re told to stand down and “trust the plan.” QAnon’s unwavering message is for his followers to blindly trust the plan, to limit our resistance to internet memes, to act as digital soldiers rather than the real thing.
The overall message is to surrender. But we don’t need to stand down, America; we need to step up. We have to start with these drunk-on-power governors. They have no right to issue, much less enforce unconstitutional orders. And we don’t need to wait on courts to set us free. It’s already done with the Constitution and ruled on by the Supreme Court.
Norton vs. Shelby County, 118 US 425, 442: “An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”
Stand up to tyranny today. Show these governors we are still free American citizens. The people in the video below show Americans exercising their constitutional rights: the guy’s ready to go to jail, will suck up a fine, because either is a small price to pay for liberty.
