Perhaps this would’ve been more timely closer to 6 January 2021, but it’s no less timely now that we have proof the government has been lying about the origins of the recent “pandemic” (among other things). The next time you hear some idiot in Congress, the White House, or wherever bleating about “insurrection,” keep this quote in mind:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
— Declaration of Independence
For how much longer will you consent to the current form of “governance?”
I know the American People are much attached to their Government. I know they would suffer much for its sake. I know they would endure evils long and patiently, before they would ever think of exchanging it for another. Yet, notwithstanding all this, if the laws be continually despised and disregarded, if their rights to be secure in their persons and property, are held by no better tenure than the caprice of a mob, the alienation of their affections from the Government is the natural consequence; and to that, sooner or later, it must come.
But of course, no one is talking about sending alarmists or their painfully ignorant acolytes–Leo Dicaprio!–to prison. On the other hand, Democrats in Washington want to silence those who have bravely stood against the government-funded monopoly to bring a modicum of truth to the climate debate. The Hill reports:
The decision about whether to investigate ExxonMobil Corporation’s advocacy on climate change is now in the FBI’s hands.
The Department of Justice (DOJ), which received multiple requests to probe Exxon for potential legal action, has sent the case to the FBI for its consideration, it told a pair of Democratic lawmakers.
“As a courtesy, we have forwarded your correspondence to the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” DOJ wrote to Reps. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) and Mark DeSaulnier (D-Calif.), who asked for the probe.
“The FBI is the investigative arm of the department, upon which we rely to conduct the initial fact finding in federal cases. The FBI will determine whether an investigation is warranted,” Peter Kadzik, the assistant attorney general for legislative affairs, wrote.
Actually, the oil companies have mostly been bystanders in the climate debate. But the Democrats are trying to deflect attention away from the fact that their global warming theory is crumbling in the face of the facts. The oil companies make convenient scapegoats.
My understanding of it is that most of Hillary’s “lead” is in so-called “superdelegates” who aren’t chosen through the usual electoral processes (caucus or primary). For people who call themselves “Democrats,” isn’t this a rather small-D undemocratic way to pick a candidate? From the outside looking in, it looks like a way for the party bosses to pick the candidate they want, and to hell with what their rank-and-file want. I understand they might have concerns with Bernie Sanders’ nonexistent electability (to say nothing of the fact that he actually wasn’t even one of them until fairly recently), but maybe they should’ve addressed those concerns early enough that they could’ve offered up a few more choices. That, of course, would require that the fix is not already in.
This election should be the Republicans’ to lose. The only fly in the ointment is that the Republicans have in recent years made a science out of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Whether the Democrats end up nominating the communist or the crook, GOP ineptitude could still give them more of a shot at winning than they deserve.
Ann Coulter says the Epstein rape case is “not just a Clinton sex scandal,” but the “elites” “covering up and protecting one another.” “This is what MSNBC and the rest of the networks have been describing what they thought these fraternities, what they thought the [Duke] lacrosse rape [case was],” Coulter said on FOX News’ Hannity. This is the elites circling the wagon and protecting a pederast. It’s a shocking case and that’s just the known facts.”
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”
— Declaration of Independence
Read this and get informed. How other than “a long train of abuses and usurpations” would you describe federal actions going back more than a century?
At the beginning of December, Rolling Stone writer Jeff Goodell asked Secretary of State John Kerry whether Charles and David Koch, two libertarian political activists, should be considered — his remarkable words — “an enemy of the state.” He posed the same question about Exxon, and John Kerry, who could have been president of these United States, said that he looked forward to the seizure of Exxon’s assets for the crime of “proselytizing” impermissibly about the question of global warming.
An enemy of the state? That’s the Democrats’ theme for the New Year: totalitarianism.
