The stopgap federal budget passed today is a significant marker, one that makes certain conclusions clear as sunlight. This budget changes nothing that Trump and his supporters demanded be changed. Sanctuary cities are still funded, along with Klan Parenthood. Immigration reform is not in this budget, nor are funds for a border wall — this budget specifically restricts construction of that wall, no less. And Obamacare remains in force and funded.
Since inauguration day, no significant new legislation has been sent to the floor nor has any been enacted. The only federal policy changes have been made via executive orders, which merely nibble around the edges. The Senate (Republican-controlled and backed up via the “nuclear option”) and the House (Republican-controlled) have done nothing of merit other than posture. Trump supporters are asking, “What in hell is going on”?
The answer is revealing: It is now absolutely clear that our federal government is not run by elected officials. It is run by an informal and largely-invisible alliance of unelected career bureaucrats, appointed judges, and K Street lobbyists. This coalition writes skeletal legislation, pays its lackey congressmen and senators to support it, pays the bureaucracy to write the regulations that determine how legislation will impact the citizenry and the economy, and pays the judiciary to endrun laws as necessary to enforce the implementation. It matters not who you and I elect to represent us, because the majority of the people who hold the tools of government and law are not elected. The lawmakers and enforcers are paid hires, representing global industrial segments and corporations, the finance and securities industries, and coalitions of minority client groups: PROGRESSIVES to the last man and woman.
And is there an over-arching agenda guiding the laws and regulations coming from this unelected coalition? Yes: It is the agenda of the global elite, the worldwide uniparty, aided and abetted by the supporters and proponents of Islam, and given 24/7/365 media coverage by their paid toadies in the MSM.
Just consider the national-level policies in effect today, both in the USA and much of Europe: They outline a progressive agenda, implemented and managed for the enrichment of those in power. Consider the policies demanded by Trump / LePen / Brexit supporters, and ask yourself why they are thwarted and opposed by nearly everyone in positions of power: They run counter to the progressive agenda, and thus will be stopped.
And those of you who deem me to be a “conspiracy nut” for making these statements? Show me where I’m wrong. Just follow the money, friends. Who determines who can tap the federal treasury? Who controls the stability of the global multi-hundred-trillion-dollar currency deficit? Who benefits from the direction this world is turning? Is it your elected President? Or is it the uniparty’s puppets, folks like Smidge McConnell, Paul Ryan, Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama, John Roberts, and those unnamed K Street wingtip lobbyists? And the banks and investors who are pulling their strings?
Let me state this another way to Trump supporters (a group that includes me): Donald is not on the payroll. The uniparty cannot tell Trump “You’re fired!”, but they sure as hell can castrate his pen and his phone.
It’s hip right now for elected Democrats to worry that the extremism of their party will hurt them in upcoming congressional elections. The truth is, it does not matter. Elect Democrats, and the progressive agenda moves forward with alacrity. Elect Republicans, and the progressive agenda moves a bit more slowly and stealthily … but it still moves forward.
I would propose to our readers that any Constitutional system of government which is so readily hijacked, is a failed system. The Framers and Founders stated their assumption that our nation would be governed by moral men and women. They did not foresee, nor did they provide a means of redress for, the complete corruption of their plan by immoral, greedy, power-hungry, deceitful men and women who fear neither the wrath of the citizenry nor of God. They did not foresee the creation of a judiciary that is bought and sold by private monies. Nor did The Founders foresee the creation of a “fourth branch” of government populated bu unelected regulators who are paid to enforce the demands of the few at the expense of the many. They could not foresee technology which would enable elitists worldwide to band together to control huge segments of the global economy and social contract, national borders be damned. And the Framers and Founders certainly did not foresee that their nation’s schools could or would be turned into progressive indoctrination centers.
The Founders designed a brilliant system of self-government, the only one in human history built on two precious concepts: God-given individual rights and the right for individuals to own property. Their system assumed that the citizens making decisions and writing legislation would be trained by (and held accountable to) teachers, preachers, and fathers. Today, many teachers are propagandists; preachers are castigated as practitioners of “hate speech”; and in nearly one half of American families, fathers are run off after donating their sperm.
Our Constitution, I suggest, is not written as a blueprint for fools and self-centered greedy asshats to use for successful self-governance. We have been hijacked by devious progressives obsessed with money and power, aided by an electorate half of which is more interested in its Facebook profiles and the goings-on in its underpants, than it is in freedom.
The Framers and Founders did provide the citizenry with two means of redress when and if the people determine that their government has become corrupt and unresponsive to their demands. The first is the ballot box. I suggest that, above the local level, this means no longer works. Donald Trump was elected by a slim popular majority — by people who do indeed subscribe to teachers, preachers, and fathers holding sway. But as stated above, nobody gets the chance to elect lobbyists, career bureaucrats, or federal judges. The second means of redress provided is guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
Bernie Sanders, lunatic curmudgeon that he is, is correct in one way. He claims that capitalism operating within a constitutional republic is a failure, and that the solution to this failure is socialism / communism. Bernie’s solution is wrong, but his claim is accurate. Any system of government which is weak enough as to be hijacked as ours has been, is flawed. Seriously flawed. The remaining question: Is this a fatal flaw? Or are there enough sufficiently aware and motivated Americans to save this Republic? Keep your powder dry, friends.
