We are a nation divided today: split into political divisions, Democrat, Republican, Socialist, Progressive; into racial divisions: black, white, Asian, Hispanic; into cultural and sexual divisions: straight, gay, lesbian, transexual, etc. Our entire country’s fabric is being torn asunder as these separate ‘tribes’ are set against one another. In Chapter 3 of the Gospel of Mark (verses 24 & 25), Christ stated “If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand”. This once great nation is being fractured and only its people can prevent it.
I had a conversation with a dear friend yesterday, who thought I might be amused by a verbal gaffe committed by President Biden. (It is important to note that he is an ardent and lifelong liberal Democrat while I have considerably more conservative leanings.) I was not amused, as I find the lack of clarity, intellect, and honesty to be severely lacking in this president. Having him prove it again by speaking publicly again does not strike me as funny. This conversation quickly devolved into an argument – left versus right which terminated when my friend hung up on me in mid-sentence. His hatred of Donald Trump was matched only by my disdain for Joe Biden. He railed on about Trump being a liar and trying to steal this election from Biden by inciting insurrection, being in bed with Russia, and being arguably the most horrible person that this planet has seen since Ivan the Terrible.
I tried to segment these issues and tackle them individually, which only increased the emotional level of the discourse. It quickly became apparent that Mr. Trump was bad because my friend’s “gut instinct” told him he was a bad guy. The rumors of his “Russian Collusion” only served to reinforce this feeling along with any coverage by ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNBC, et cetera (“MSM – Main Stream Media”). The most difficult part of this entire conversation was that it drove us into an adversarial position with no hope of compromise. He completely discounted my research into the issues with the 2020 election: the complete failure of the swing state’s Biden vote count to pass Benford’s Law of First Digits, Peter Schweizer’s book entitled “Red Handed”, or any coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop with his payments to the “Big Guy”.
As a result, there was literally no basis for a conversation or debate. There was no common starting point and no concrete foundation that could be agreed upon. With emotions beginning to increase and frustration on both sides ratcheting up, it quickly became apparent that this now shouting match could fracture a close friendship. In hindsight, I am glad that he chose to hang up on me before it got to that level.
While I regret the tone the conversation took, I know that he loves America and is grateful for the opportunities it has afforded him, as am I. However, in retrospect, I now know that polite discourse between our two parties will never happen until we can get common facts to rely upon. The complicity of the MSM with the Democrat party is almost total and complete and, without any opposing voice except Fox.
Until journalists start to report on events with some level of impartiality using a factual basis, the distrust of all voices will only increase (consider how every news outlet spiked the Hunter Biden laptop story until recently and then with only minimal coverage). It is time for us, as a nation, to demand honesty from our media outlets and news organizations.
For example, when Darrell Brooks Jr. drives an SUV through a Christmas parade in Wisconsin, killing 6 and injuring dozens more, it should not be reported as “An SUV killed people in a parade”. I believe that, because Mr. Brooks is a black man and most of his victims were white, this particular crime did not assist in pushing a BLM/Antifa agenda and received very little MSM attention. Now, when Peyton Gendron, walks into a Buffalo NY supermarket and kills 10 people who were primarily black, this gets put on the cover of every newspaper and leads in the MSM as a “hate crime”. Both acts are similarly heinous but received very different reporting.
An aside: It is also interesting to note that there was no one blaming the automobile manufacturers for building and promoting “weapons of war” but that’s a Second Amendment argument not for this essay.
It should be important to remember that Mr. Biden’s inaugural address included the following: “the dream of justice for all will be deferred no longer” and “my whole soul is in this: bringing America together. Uniting our people. And uniting our nation”. These were the words he spoke to our nation, his promise to America. Do we have equal justice in this nation? In the almost 18 months since his inauguration, has there been any move to create unity? Let’s examine each of those points closely.
“Justice for all” seems like the exact language our Constitutional framers would have used to describe a judicial utopian ideal that our courts and law enforcement agencies are designed to emulate. If justice is to be fair, it must also be delivered evenly, regardless of race, religion, or political party.
When you consider the treatment of Roger Stone, arrested in his home in the pre-dawn hours with a SWAT team, and Peter Navarro, who lives 50 feet from the FBI’s Washington office, being shackled with handcuffs and leg irons at National Airport after offering to surrender himself earlier that same day. Stone was arrested for lying to the FBI and Navarro for ignoring a Congressional subpoena. James Clapper and John Brennan, both staunch Democrats were guilty of lying to Congress – no arrests, no jail time, and no court appearances. Instead they were rewarded with positions on cable news.
Also consider the case of Michael Sussman, who essentially admitted to lying to the FBI and was acquitted of his crimes. In case you need a refresher, he is the DNC lawyer at the firm of Perkins Coie. Two of this law firm’s main Washington DC clients are the DNC and the Clinton family – who delivered the notorious Steele Dossier that began the entire Russian Collusion Hoax. Yes, that same Steele Dossier that was created at the request of the Clinton Campaign, paid for with Clinton campaign funds and used by the FBI to get the FISA courts to permit them to spy on the Trump campaign. Is this equal justice, when one political party has the leading law enforcement agency in the world doing its bidding, including staffing an office in the DNC’s pet law firm, Perkins Coie?
On to unity: how is that working out? Every action of this administration seems intended to fracture our society rather than bring us together. We are watching our rule of law fade into the background as the administration lets millions of unknown people stream across our southern border. Will these new ‘citizens’ help us find unity?
We know they are responsible for over 100,000 deaths of actual American citizens from fentanyl overdoses delivered to us from China via Mexico. We are also confronted by an economic tsunami that Mr. Biden and Ms. Pelosi are directly responsible for – all that Covid stimulus money inflated our money supply by 50%, which any first-year economics student will tell you produces runaway inflation.
This is further exacerbated by working to reduce and retard domestic energy exploration and production with the zeal of a PRC Security officer suppressing a Uighur neighborhood.
This is additive to the inflation from the increase in our money supply. It affects the cost of everything in our country, from your cost of energy, your latest purchase on Amazon to the family summer vacation to the cost of groceries.
We have a baby formula shortage, you can’t get glass for the windows in new home construction, and virtually every good and service cost more and is scarcer than it was 18 months ago. Inflation, by definition, creates competition for all goods and services. It pits neighbor against neighbor, further fracturing our neighborhoods and our sense of nation.
So, once again, I beg of you, my liberal friends, to help me understand why any of these policies of this administration are helping our country? How an open border flooding deadly fentanyl across our land and scattering millions of unknown people throughout our country will make America a better place to live? Why is it better to buy oil from Venezuela, Iran, or Saudi Arabia than it is to drill for it here?
I understand that we may have different world views, watch different television shows, and vote for different people, but can you please tell us how anything this administration has done to us will also be for us. Perhaps then we can have a positive and constructive conversation.
Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.
Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.
Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about.
It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.
The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
