Hail King Joe the First

Published

on

Our president seems to think he has carte blanche to do anything he wants. Joe Biden—the man who would be king—sells his office to foreign powers, uses the Justice Department to attack his political opponents, ignores Supreme Court rulings, attempts to restructure American society, and wages war on whites. As Shakespeare wrote in Richard III, “Can I do this and cannot get a crown?”

The evidence is accumulating that Biden was involved in a full-blown influence-peddling scam involving several foreign countries and millions of dollars. “This president has used something we have not seen since Richard Nixon—the weaponization of government to benefit his family and deny Congress the ability to have the oversight,” said House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

“He obviously did know about these deals,” charged Jonathan Turley, Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University. “He had involvement with some of these meetings. You have millions of dollars moving through a labyrinth of accounts. The question then becomes not whether the president has lied, but why he has lied for so many years about this influence-peddling operation run through his son.”

When he is not selling his office, Biden is using the Department of Justice to attack his political adversaries. Following in the footsteps of Barack Obama, Uncle Joe is turning the full force of the DOJ and FBI against US citizens. He is sending a message that anything goes in the pursuit of power, from weaponizing the justice system against his political opponents to rigging elections.

The indictments against Trump, said attorney Alina Habba, are “election interference at its finest.” The Biden gang knows that if Americans vote on Biden’s record, he will lose. “Instead,” said Sen. Ted Cruz, “they want to use the Department of Justice to steal the election by dominating the headlines.” This is the first time a sitting president is overtly interfering in a presidential election by silencing his main rival for the Oval Office. Only a king can get away with that.

The DOJ offensive against Trump, said Sen. Cruz, is “a political indictment” and “the latest manifestation of the politicization of the Department of Justice where the Democrats, every time there are bad developments, about Joe Biden, about Hunter Biden, they immediately turn around and try to overtake the news cycle with yet another attack on Donald Trump. They want all of the headlines to be about anything other than the disastrous Joe Biden record.”

Constitutional lawyer and former Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz agreed. Dershowitz is concerned about living in a banana republic, where “you go after your political opponents by indicting them and denying your right to vote for him or against them.” If Biden pulls this off, he will be king and the rest of us will be serfs on the Democrat plantation.

In blatant disregard for constitutionally mandated separation of powers, Biden seems inclined to ignore Supreme Court rulings, including the one banning affirmative action. Leftist law professors are urging him on. Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet and San Francisco State University political scientist Aaron Belkin called upon the president to defy Supreme Court rulings that he considers mistaken. “What is most striking about these professors,” said Professor Turley, “is how they continue to claim they are defenders of democracy, yet seek to use unilateral executive authority to defy the courts and the majority of the public. They remain the privileged elite of academia, declaring their values as transcending both constitutional and democratic processes.”

Biden’s executive orders, following the guidelines of the extreme left wing of the Democrat Party, exceed the powers allotted to the president. His order enforcing equity in all federal agencies is massive, restructuring all of American society along lines of equity instead of equality. As described by The Center for Individual Rights, “The order furthers the administration’s effort to embed equity into all aspects of Federal decision-making. Racial equity is a progressive euphemism for racial reparations and preferences in education, hiring, and contracting. Biden is pushing to make the federal government a frank instrument of a racialized radicalism.”

Biden’s actions establishing race and gender criteria are expressly prohibited by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Fourteenth Amendment. In addition to violating federal civil rights laws, Biden’s equity plans “are at war with the nation’s very ideals,” says The Heritage Foundation. We could easily witness “a new form of political patronage and corruption through a racial spoils system.”

The president’s unilateral action, said Samantha Chang in Western Journal, “marginalizes white people. This anti-white discrimination isn’t surprising,” she said, “because it’s a pattern with this administration. Demonizing white people and disempowering black people by encouraging them to view themselves as ‘oppressed victims’ will only result in more racial division and societal chaos.”

Jim Thompson, writing in RedState, puts it all in perspective. “Less than three years ago,” says Thompson, “Donald Trump was president, and liberals were calling Trump a tyrant. Yet now they clamor for a president they ‘like’ to act as one, to be a dictator without a moment of reflection. If a modern president ignores the Supreme Court and the Constitution, we would no longer be a republic; we would be ruled by a tyrant.”

“They are calling for Biden to declare himself the final arbiter of what the Constitution means,” said Professor Turley, “and to exercise unilateral executive power without congressional approval. He is to become a government unto himself.” All hail King Joe the First.

Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Published

on

On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Claudine Gay, Ex-Harvard President, Will Strike it Rich in 2024

Gay will be a hot ticket at conferences leading up to the 2024 election.

Published

on

If she were a straight white male, Claudine Gay’s career in academia would have been completely finished weeks ago. Along with the presidents of MIT and (then) University of Pennsylvania, as a result of Gay’s anti-Semitism and her disastrous testimony before Congress in December, much of the country was in an uproar.

Pretzel Logic

Days later, when it was discovered that Gay had plagiarized or inappropriately paraphrased and lifted passages from other authors, from a variety of academic works, that would have sealed her fate. In this utterly illogical age of unreason, just the opposite of what ought to happen actually did happen. The Harvard bigwigs backed her!

Gay punched all of the intersectionality buttons: Black, gay, female, and what else you want to throw into the mix. So was she not terminated from her widely visible, high-profile position. Luckily for Harvard, she quit as president! She retains her cushy post as professor, however, at $900,000 per year. And more amazing good fortune likely is in store for her. She may well reap an income bonanza unlike most other college presidents in the U.S. or around the world.

You have to understand that Gay is actually a hero to many factions on the Left. Let’s see … she stood up to the man! She let Congress have it with both barrels. She defended her academic turf. She stuck with what she believes in. She didn’t kowtow to the U.S. pro-Israeli faction. She spoke her truth! My goodness, what a leader, what a noble soul, what a speaker we might have at our convention!

Media Darlings

A variety of questionable figures on the Left have become darlings to groups who lap up their every word. If you think this won’t happen with Ms. Gay, think again.

Unbelievably, the parents of Trayvon Martin became media darlings. Martin was a violent teenager who punched a bus driver in the face, stole money and other items at school, and was suspended from school at the time of his death. He met his fate while pounding George Zimmerman’s head into a sidewalk.

Democratic groups have celebrated the Martins ever since then. Their public appearances were considered to be special. In another minute, with a cracked skull, Zimmerman might have bled out and died, making Martin a murderer.

Honored at the DNC Convention

The parents of Michael Brown also made the rounds and were accorded celebrity status. The super-sized 18-year-old from Ferguson, MO had stolen cigars and choked a small Asian convenience store clerk just 10 minutes before he had tried to wrestle a gun away from an officer sitting in his police car.

Had Brown, whose fingerprints were all over the officer’s car, successfully taken the officer’s gun, Brown, too, might have been a murderer. At the Democrat National Convention attendees couldn’t get enough of Brown’s noble mother. Sadly, the city of Ferguson, MO, paid Brown’s family an extorted $1.5 million, largely due to fears of more mob violence.

If parents who’ve raised career criminals are celebrated, what are Claudine Gay’s prospects?

Prospects Aplenty

Presumably, she has no violent incidents in her past. Prior to her resignation as Harvard president she may have already, privately signed on with one of the top speaker’s bureaus from either in Boston, New York, or Washington, D.C. Bureaus value having partisan speakers in their lineup when they can book such individuals at large conferences and conventions. Gay will be a hot ticket leading up to the 2024 election.

She will be featured as the head liner at many conferences.

How much can she glean from such appearances? The floor is 20 to 40 thousand per outing, but 50 to 75 thousand is within reach, of which the bureau takes 25%. At that level of earnings for a speech, she could easily exceed another $900,000 by the end of the year. Will you earn $1,800,000 in the next ten years?

Knowing No Bounds

As one audience after another offers her special treatment, her already outsized, over-privileged ego will know no bounds, and all of her past sins will be long forgotten. The groups to whom she speaks will consider themselves to have done their part in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Gay’s intersectionality seals the deal, so by any measure, it’s a win-win-win (bureau, speaker, and audience) for Leftists.

To those on the Right, such developments are sickening, but we’ve come to accept that this is the world as it is currently. With all the devastation and destruction promulgated by the Biden administration, we have much bigger fish to fry.
