The Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans, and MSM) has become so obsessed with their Power they are deliberately putting the future of America at risk! In fact, their actions are so extreme now that it looks like the destruction of our Constitution, as declared by Obama when he said, “we are going to fundamentally change America”, is their ultimate objective. As I think back about watching him say that on TV I had no idea that was really going to happen, much less this soon! Here are a few recent examples that prove that is happening now and is a planned, organized and inflexible effort with everybody on the Left eagerly working to achieve that goal:
- The Mueller pre-dawn raid on Roger Stone’s home is the latest and clearest example of the Left’s obsession with their own power and is undeniable proof that they believe they are so powerful they have become invincible (Merriam Webster definition of invincible: incapable of being conquered, overcome, or subdued). Several things make the Mueller raid one of the most glaring examples of the Left’s open disdain for our Constitution. The carefully planned and coordinated raid happened before daylight on Friday morning,1/25/19. The warrants for Roger Stone’s arrest were served by FBI officers in NINETEEN VEHICLES. SOME OF THE OFFICERS WERE WEARING RIOT GEAR AND CARRYING LONG GUNS. A HELICOPTER WAS HOVERING OVER THE BOAT DOCK ON THE RIVER BEHIND HIS HOUSE! AND CNN WAS COVERING IT AND BROADCASTING IT LIVE (BUT CNN DENIED BEING TIPPED OFF IN ADVANCE?)! The alleged crimes Stone was charged with all happened after the 2016 election and had nothing to do with the election, including allegedly lying to Congress? A number of recognized legal experts have stated publicly that this raid is absolutely unprecedented in America! Pam Bondi, former Attorney General of Florida said in a Fox News interview that she had worked as a prosecutor since she was in her 20’s, had been on raids where dangerous career criminals with multiple outstanding warrants were taken into custody, and she had never seen anything like the Mueller raid. Greg Jarrett, Fox News legal analyst said the same thing. Alan Dershowitz, a former Constitutional law professor, practicing attorney, author of many books about the Constitution and American legal system, and a hard Left Liberal, said the same thing. He reiterated that everything Stone was charged with allegedly happened after the 2016 election and had nothing to do with the election! Several of the legal experts came to the conclusion that this raid was Mueller sending a message to the world that he can and will do this to anyone he chooses, and that he is invincible (subordinate to NO ONE). If there was any doubt about this conclusion, leaking it to CNN in advance and letting them send a reporter and camera crew to report on the raid, as it was happening is proof that this conclusion is undeniable. Mueller deliberately made the raid be extreme and public! One of the legal experts noted that this kind of thing happens in other countries that are ruled by dictators, NOT in America! A final note on what makes this raid so un-American is that the judge that Stone appeared before after his arrest released him on “his own recognizance” (he was allowed to sign his own bail and did not have to post bond). This is a clear indication that the normal procedure would have been to notify Stone, through his attorney, that he was being ordered to voluntarily surrender to authorities at the appointed time and place. Not execute a raid of any kind.
- Nancy Pelosi is also acting as if she is so powerful she has become invincible! She canceled the President’s scheduled “State of the Union” speech, in writing! She agreed to reschedule the speech at a time of her choosing. She has repeatedly refused to even discuss the President’s border security plans and continues to do so. When asked recently by a reporter if she was willing to negotiate on a new border security plan she angrily replied, “have I not made my position on border security clear?”. She even refuses to acknowledge that her inflexible “no barriers stance” is in direct contradiction to her long public record of supporting border walls (and her state already has a wall)!
- When the President agreed to sign a new bill reopening the government, based on a number of Democrats verbally agreeing (some publicly) to negotiate on a border security plan that did include barriers in some places, Pelosi and Schumer immediately held a joint press conference. In the press conference, they gleefully declared total victory over the President and denigrated him in the worst possible ways. Schumer even said twice that he, “hoped the President had learned his lesson and would not make the same mistake again”!
- When a reporter recently asked Pelosi about the President having special legal protections while he was in office, she angrily denied that he does. One more example of the Left openly ignoring the existence of our Constitution.
America is clearly at a “fork in the road” where there are only two possible directions we can go. If we keep going to the Left our Constitution will be shredded and America will be, “fundamentally changed” forever. Or we can demand that we go to the Right and be that “shining city on the hill” that President Reagan described and moved us toward being. I firmly believe that with our support President Trump will continue to “Make America Great Again”, in spite of the Left’s obsession with wielding complete power over everyone who does not blindly follow them!
