Is America a Nation of Laws?

For five years running, a variety of laws broken by top officials of our federal agencies have gone unpunished.

Published

on

As we hear news broadcasts about members of the U.S. armed forces or law enforcement professionals being killed in the line of duty, we’re instantly reminded of the sacrifices that so many have made, and others continue to make so that we can enjoy the freedoms many multitudes around the world do not have.

Concurrently, the specter of corruption and lawlessness prevails in our cities and among government officials. The illegal raid on Rudy Giuliani’s offices and property is merely the latest in a string FBI malfeasance.

Law and order matter because they are the glue by which a society can function. Without them, cities and towns devolve into anarchy and chaos. What we’ve witnessed of late in Portland and Minneapolis, and earlier in Seattle, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Cleveland, represent clear signposts as to what life would be like without law and order

Wild in the Streets

While many on the Left do all that they can each day to minimize the extent of the municipal uprisings, considering the amount of damage done and the inability of local jurisdictions to maintain control, the grim reality is that, left unchecked, many people will run wild in the streets.

If you’re among those people who are fine with what’s occurring, and not using local or federal troops to restore order, contemplate how you would feel if your town, specifically your neighborhood, and perhaps even right in front of your house, overly vigorous protesters began to appear day and night.

Suppose some of these protesters taunted you, said they’re going to take over your home, and said that your property doesn’t belong to you, it belongs to them. Would you find that to be a bit upsetting?

The Unpunished

Violent protests and riots are one form of lawbreaking, but other forms are equally troubling in a society that prided itself as a nation of laws.

For five years running, a variety of laws broken by top officials of our federal agencies have gone unpunished. No one from the State Department, Department of Justice, FBI, or a variety of other federal agencies who knowingly broke the law has yet been indicted, let alone accused, let alone referred for prosecution (as far as we know).

Of nagging continuing concern to those on the right: The case against Hillary Clinton in 2016 for her egregious security breaches as U.S. Secretary of State, as observed by the Washington Post, New York Times and Wall Street Journal among legions of media outlets on the left and the right, to this day, is still evident.

The Obama Administration plainly let Hillary Clinton off the hook for long-running, multi-faceted, gross national security violations that merit a lengthy prison sentence. She engineered such violations to run the U.S. State Department as a Clinton-family profit center. In a nation of laws, she would have already been indicted and, likely, removed by her party in 2016 as a viable presidential candidate.

Lawbenders

The FBI director at the time, James Comey, recommended that she not be prosecuted for extreme carelessness contributing to numerous security breaches. This maneuver might prove to be a watershed moment in American history – denoting when confidence was lost in what should be entrusted leaders and institutions, and of ‘We the People.’

Despite two ongoing FBI criminal investigations, former president Obama had already committed to campaigning with Hillary Clinton that same day that Comey handed Clinton a free pass. Nevermind the 33,000 subpoenaed emails she destroyed.

In late 2020, with Bill Barr as attorney general, we thought that Hillary Clinton might yet face charges for her high crimes – even easier to prove with Judicial Watch digging up new evidence every week – as her numerous lies before Congressional committees are amply documented on video.

Alas, no dice. If she is never charged, the biggest losers are American citizens on the right and the left.

Taking Abuse

If you’re a Bernie Sanders supporter, you have the right to this day to be livid because your candidate, amidst other blatant abuses during the 2016 campaign, was denied his rightful ascension to the top of the Democratic Party.

If you’re not upset that Hillary Clinton hasn’t been indicted, ask yourself, “Is allowing her to be above the law worth jeopardizing the values upon which our Republic is based?”

A Compound National Fracture

Our 246-year experiment in representative democracy is rapidly fraying at the edges

Published

on

If Martin Luther King, Jr. were alive today, he’d be appalled at the fractionalization of our nation. No one can guarantee the USA will exist for the duration of the decade, let alone the next several years.

Our 246-year experiment in representative democracy is rapidly fraying at the edges, and not merely because of anarchists and agitators funded by one-world globalists, or because of perpetually contested elections. Big money has always been the controlling factor in Washington D.C. Today, the levels of influence peddling are unprecedented and getting worse.

Evaporating Middle Ground

Democrats and Republicans once sought to join together on critical issues for the good of the Union, at least some of the time. Today partisan politics predominates. We now approach $30 trillion in debt and $164 trillion in unfunded liabilities, equal to 492,000 per citizen, This a level that is unconscionable and represents theft of our children’s and grandchildren’s heritage. Concurrently, Communist China operates in the foreground to undermine our every institution.

The sentiment that the U.S. is a global force for good is a sentiment shared by at least half of our friends around the globe, and even begrudgingly by our enemies after the dust settled — think Germany and Japan — but the sentiment cannot be as potent when there is constant internal strife. Domestic dissension and sedition, the lobbying stranglehold, and treason has left our friends befuddled and our enemies bemused and emboldened.

Meanwhile, the world is suffering, beyond the ravages of the coronavirus and in ways that few people could have predicted. More refugees populate the earth than ever before. Human trafficking, often a euphemism for sexual slavery, is a blight on “civilized” societies. The world population is now approaching 8.0 billion people up from 5.0 billion people in 1985.

Madness in Motion

In the U.S. whether or not the libstream press will address the reality, the waves of illegal immigrants from 2008 to 2022 have strained our resources. Local and state governments are bursting at the fiscal seams, while Biden and crew keep the floodgates open.

Crime is rampant among communities with an influx of illegal aliens. A visit to the Drug Enforcement Administration website reveals the country of origin of those criminals most wanted by the D.E.A. in cities across America. Hint: Overwhelming it is Mexico.

Despite record amounts spent on education, our schools were already failing, before the current shutdowns. Minority academic underachievement has been near-constant for decades, even in the most “progressive” communities with the most “progressive-thinking” teachers. Hordes of immigrant children, primarily hailing from Latin America, further strain school districts.

Splitting along Ideological Lines

On the East Coast and the West Coast, deep pockets of liberalism prevail. In the center of the country, conservatism prevails. Communities are organizing along political divisions and feel “the other side” simply doesn’t get it: espousing policies, theories, and beliefs contrary to the best interests of our civilization.

I don’t wish to reside in a land dominated by a polarized news media, the current Senate and Congressional leaders, billionaire “progressives” bent on censorship, sell-out corporations, a two-tier justice system, and a school system designed to poison the minds of our children.

The U.S. might fracture and become two or three countries. The geography for such a partition, of course, is not convenient. How do you combine California, Oregon, and Washington, with New England and the left-leaning Mid-Atlantic States? They are joined together by ideology, while thousands of miles apart. And, if we the U.S. were to split into two nations, beyond the inconvenient geography many problems would occur from legal, political, and trade standpoints.

No Unity, No Future

In any case, we cannot continue in the current mode. The far-left is pulling away from everyone else in the nation, even from patriotic rank and file Democrat. Many people would just as soon let the rabble-rousers go: What is the point of seeking to maintain the Union with people who fervently wish to “re-educate” you?

All the above points to the reality that the U.S. as we know it could soon be irretrievable.

January 6th: One Year of Democrat Lies

On this day, expect to see an array of libstream news coverage that contorts the events of one year ago

Published

on

The Biden Administration has taken action unprecedented in our history. It is treating those individuals who inhabited the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 in protest as if they are insurrectionist or murderous terrorists. The people who Biden is holding, in many cases for months on end in solitary confinement, are being denied their fundamental rights as American citizens.

America was founded based on a constitution and amendments that guarantee rights to the individual; a republic where laws prevail, to be dispensed impartially; where unlawful search and seizure is not permitted; and where due process matters.

This is the land of the free and the home of the brave; the nation which immigrants from everywhere yearn to be; the beacon of democracy and the best example on Earth of a free people.

Insurrection? Hardly

Many of the people who entered the Capitol that day were ushered in by the Capitol guards. They simply walked through doors that were held open for them. The claims of insurrection are ridiculous. No one had weapons. How do you mount an insurrection with no arms?

Nearly all every Capitol occupiers had either a plane reservation or car ride ready for that evening or the next day. They did not intend to stay. In short, no organized attempt to overthrow the government was underway, and every Biden official and every rational member of Congress knows that knows that.

The libstream press won’t tell you that the ranks of actual Trump supporters were infiltrated by members of Antifa and actual insurrectionists who sought to create a false flag, making it seem as if Donald Trump and Trump-inspired supporters intended to overthrow the U.S. government.

Trump supporters were not seeking to overthrow the United States government; this is total hogwash as is known by anyone who is familiar with the facts.

Ashli Babbitt, a U.S. Air Force veteran, was killed by a Capitol guard. She posed no threat and carried no weapon, and based on the more vigorous activity of some Capitol occupiers did little to earn her fate.

Many of the Americans held by the Biden Administration have been mistreated. Remember, they are innocent until proven guilty. Why not release to the public the film footage from inside of the capital, with no cuts on footage; no bits and pieces? We know why.

The Shame of Biden and Company

The Biden Administration and its incalculably undemocratic, unlawful, and despicable approach to administering justice is stifling attempts to ensure that these incarcerated individuals receive lawful and constitutional protections. Justice, however, must be served before and during the legal proceedings for any of the incarcerated.

Biden, a political puppet, and his handlers, feel all-powerful and appear unconcerned. They’ve got the sycophantic press on their side as well as multi-millions of gullible Democrats, liberals, and progressives who believe that Biden is a kind man, his administration is both fair and just, and the Capitol occupiers are in league with the devil. As usual, the exact opposite is true.

And what about the DOJ? For at least two decades and counting, the U.S. Department of Justice has engaged in egregious acts of prosecutorial misconduct. DOJ prosecuting attorneys seek convictions by any means necessary. If that involves withholding evidence, delaying court cases, and bleeding the persecuted financially dry, then so be it. Within a 97% conviction rate, as a nation, we have crossed the line into banana republic territory.

On a Mission of Misinformation

The gatekeepers of information and communication in our society, including the wannabe autocrats at Facebook, Google, Amazon, Twitter, etc, don’t fool us with their rigged algorithms and ‘community standards.’

Their manipulation of the news, the contorted views, and the censorship in which they’ve been engaged, will not diminish us. We know their end game: it is control of the masses, ever to be ruled by a fraudulently elected ruling class, backed by über-liberal billionaires who believe they are the anointed ones.

On this day, expect to see a vast array of news coverage that contorts the events of one year ago. Don’t buy into it for even a nano-second.
