“Voltaire” was the pen name of François-Marie Arouet (Wikimedia Commons, public domain)

(Jul. 9, 2020) — Voltaire: “I disagree with what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it.” (1906, via Evelyn Beatrice Hall).

BLM2: “I disagree with what you say, and will pursue and punish you to your death because you say it.” (2020, anonymous).

Thus has the First Amendment evolved in America.

Not only do the BLM2 goons threaten those who would dare to disagree with the assertion that “black lives matter,” the once-principled – but no longer tethered – Fourth Estate goose-steps on cue to ratify the BLM2 threat.  Major corporations shove millions in tribute to leftist thugs hoping to purchase protection.  Marxists are now allowed to paint slogans on streets and walls, including Communist emblems such as the hammer and sickle, but when Americans seek to remove the graffiti, they are subjected to prosecution for a “hate crime.”

How on Earth have we gotten to this place?

One argument worth consideration is that it began on January 20, 2009.  That is the date when the Second Usurper of the United States – for short, the “SUC” – took office as “president.”  Making good on the threat he issued while on the campaign trail – when he promised that if elected, he would “fundamentally transform America” – he began his usurpation of the presidency and erosion of the Nation on that day…, a date which will (or should ) live in infamy.

While Chester A. Arthur was likely the first constitutionally-ineligible person to usurp the presidency, his illegal occupation of the White House lasted only 3½ years.  That term – from September 1881 to March 1885 – arose because Arthur was originally elected as Vice-President to President James Garfield, with him ascending to the presidency only because of Garfield’s assassination.  Still, his eligibility as Vice-President was still questioned under the 12th Amendment, but those questions “failed to take root.”

On the other hand, the SUC’s formal usurpation lasted fully 8 years, only partially ending when he left office and President Trump was inaugurated.  A lot more damage can be visited upon the foundations of a nation in 8 years by a genuine usurper than in 3½ years by a “likely” usurper.  Indeed, it can be posited that because of the rolling damage that the Obama administration set in motion against the Constitution, against the rule of law and order and against the bedrock principles upon which the nation was founded during those years, the impact of his usurpation has extended far beyond the termination of his occupation of the Oval Office.

In particular, his failure to fix the racial chasm in the country while the opportunity was there – aided by the extraordinary intellectual talents of Joe Biden (just kidding) – can in large part be blamed for the rioting, anarchy and destruction now being spread over us by the goons and thugs of Antifa, BLM2 and social media battalions of misfits claiming to defend the cause of justice… while destroying it.

Once again, John Wayne said it best: “Life is tough, but it’s tougher when you’re stupid.”  The problem with Antifa and BLM2, however, is worse than common stupidity.  When one combines stupidity with mendacity and totalitarianism, the resulting brew is toxic to a constitutional republic such as ours.

In reality, the Obama-Biden administration succeeded in mainstreaming lawlessness, disregard for the founding principles and a general contempt for the persons and institutions which are the foundations of the nation.  After all, if you can get away with usurping the presidency of the United States of America…, what cannot you get away with?  And then…, they laughed about it.

They laughed about the Fast and Furious gunrunning debacle, resulting in the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.  They laughed over the Phoenix tarmac “accidental” meeting between Slick Willie Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, ultimately resulting in James Comey’s “exoneration” of Hillary (“BleachBit Babe”) Clinton for the myriad felonies she committed while masquerading as Obama’s Secretary of State.  They laughed when folks questioned Obama’s midnight shipments of $1.7 billion – in cash – for the “unrelated” release of four American hostages…, oh, and as a “good faith” gesture to keep Obama’s treasonous “Iran Nuclear Deal” on the rails.

And now, with the daily revelations about Obama’s seditious direction of the baseless pogrom against General Michael Flynn in an effort to undermine and cripple the Trump Administration, the true depth of Obama’s fundamental disdain – and, yes, even hatred – for the nation, is coming to light.

Recently, Tucker Carlson posed a most insightful question for the Democrats: “Can [they] really lead a country that [they] hate?”   The Democrats are incapable of answering that question honestly, because the response would require a level of candor missing from their collective (get it…?) brain.  The answer, of course, is: no, they can’t.

Taking a cue from Obama, Slow Joe Biden’s metamorphosis from a plagiarizing caterpillar into a police-hating moth is testament to what he would do to the country if elected.  Not pretty.  What’s that other word…?  Oh, yeah: ugly.

Memo to the Nation: all hyperbole aside, the upcoming general election in November will likely be the most important and consequential of our lifetimes.  President Trump continues to weather the storms of faux impeachments and sedition; mainstream media lies; pandemics and the horde of Democrat intellectual termites in the Congress and in the offices of blue-state governors and mayors… and then, like the Energizer Bunny, he asks: “Is that all you got?”

Slow Joe, his enablers, apparatchiks and puppeteers seek to transform this nation from the most successful, benevolent and powerful country on Earth into a collectivist hell-hole from which no one can escape… or even be allowed to escape.  Forever.  Think Venezuela.

They want to pack the Supreme Court; they want to pack the Senate by granting statehood to Washington, D.C., perhaps the scariest proposal since last Halloween; they want to confiscate your 401(k), your savings and your property; and they want to dismantle the bedrock of the nation, the “nuclear family.”

For the good of the country; for the well-being of your children, their children and their grandchildren; and for your own sense of patriotism, self-worth and pride to be a member of the greatest nation on Earth, vote very, very carefully in November.  Your faithful servant (again) channeled the Founders last night, and they all agreed: vote for Trump; retain the Senate in GOP hands; retake the House from the Democrats.  Send Pelosi packing back to San Fran.

Otherwise, get set for a one-two combination shot some might call “Brave New World Meets 1984” followed by a chaser called “The Communist Manifesto.”
