The RINO Republican Leadership have repeatedly demonstrated that they are at best, appeasers and at worst collaborators. In attempting to protect the financial status quo demanded by their big donors, they are incrementally sacrificing American liberties by cooperating in the PARTIAL abrogation of the Constitution.
To obtain that cooperation from Republicans, the Far Left engages in a three step process; Lie through omission, Revise history to support the Lie, Demonize any opposition. Then rinse and repeat until the issue reaches its ‘date of expiration’. That is effective but limited in its long term efficacy. The left’s needing to lie, in order to advance its agenda, reveals the intellectual bankruptcy of that which is lied in favor of, which is in fact, a form of evil.
Evil and incompetence are almost always intertwined, as to justify its behavior, evil has to continually rationalize away the truth of the matter. To do so requires habitually lying about that which reality consists… when done long enough, the ability to recognize reality itself is lost. The most basic prerequisite for competence is the recognition of reality.
That is why the Obama administration so often behaves incompetently.
History demonstrates that when those in power routinely resort to extralegal means, it inevitably leads to those viewed as a mortal threat, being ‘disappeared’. Though Benghazi may argue otherwise, we are probably not there yet. But with the accumulation of extraordinary statutory powers, DHS troops loyal only to this regime, the massive accumulation of firepower by civilian agencies; all aimed explicitly at the civilian population… how far away can we really be?
The defiance of the White House and its executive branch departments of the IRS and DOJ to normal Constitutional processes is already common. The Obama administration is simply refusing and ignoring questions, subpoenas and legal demands for specific information that is within Congress’ lawful purview. The courts are being ignored at will. The unconstitutional and thus illegal recess appointments to the NLRB have been struck down by two Circuit Courts of Appeal and upheld by none. Yet the illegally appointed members are still operating, demonstrating that the lawful Constitutional processes designed to restrain factions within the government from operating outside the law have broken down. Our Constitutional checks and balances are no longer working due to the massive infiltration into the government, mass media and academia of far left ideologues who regard constitutional protections, laws and regulations as inconvenient, meaningless impediments to implementation of the progressive agenda.
And the Obama administration is using its powers to prevent appropriate prosecution of government officials who have engaged in highly unethical and/or illegal actions.
We have not had a constitutional budget for 5 years, and have little prospect of ever having one again. Our electoral system has been corrupted to the point where the voter rolls and vote counts are actively disenfranchising Americans.
The left is actively engaged in adding millions upon millions of immigrants, both legal and illegal who are strongly inclined toward socialism, in order to permanently institute its agenda.
The former Soviet Premier Khrushchev foretold all of this; “We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders into repeatedly and gradually giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have [de facto] Communism.”
None of this is accidental and all of it prima facie evidence that the Far Left is engaged in a planned, seditious campaign attacking both the Constitution and the American people.
There is however, a reason for hope, though slim it may be, for we are not Europe, where bureaucratic regulation and “hate speech” laws are superseding unwritten but previously assumed freedoms. Our written Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land is as much a legal document of what the government cannot do as of what it can, which is why our Constitution is a LEGALLY insurmountable stumbling block to the full implementation of the “Progressive Agenda” that is required for that agenda to last.
“Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.” Abraham Lincoln
Which means that sooner or later, the Far Left is going to have to discard all pretense and, through illegal means, attempt to fully abrogate the Constitution. That is when low-information, “useful idiot” liberals will face an unavoidable choice; awaken to what their political support has really wrought or become through willful denial, fully complicit in tyranny.
Upon that determination hangs the fate of the Republic.
