(Oct. 10, 2021) — The tsunami of outrages flowing from the “Let’s Go Brandon” Goofball Regime just gets deeper and more destructive. With each passing day, the intentional effort by the Goof’s D.C. cabal and marionette-masters to destroy the foundations of the Republic proceeds largely unabated.
These calamitous actions include, among others:
(1) the recent edict of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to cancel all remaining contracts for the construction of a border wall in Texas, thereby making it easier for tens of thousands – and eventually, if unchecked, millions – of illegal aliens to continue pouring over the Rio Grande and elsewhere and into the nation over an eradicated international boundary;
(2) the Goof’s proposal, supported by Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, to require private financial institutions to record and report to the IRS all private customers’ deposits and/or aggregated annual transactions of $600 or more; and
(3) the blatantly unconstitutional intimidation by Attorney General Merrick Garland to stifle the free speech rights of parents before school boards regarding so-called “mask mandates” and what their children are taught in public schools.
Regarding the Garland memo, it was precipitated on – literally – two business days’ notice by a letter sent to the Goofball by the National School Boards Association (“NSBA”). When is the last time we have seen a two-day response by a governmental bureaucrat when a conservative organization seeks governmental assistance or action? I’ll wait.
The NSBA, of course, praised Garland for his “swift response” to its dictate. Recently, 60 GOP members of Congress sent Garland a letter seeking an explanation of his actions and more details of what he proposes, giving him far more time to respond than two days.
Interestingly, the NSBA website claims that “NSBA advocates for equity and excellence in public education through school board leadership.” If “excellence in public education” is its goal, perhaps it should do its homework a little better and avoid citing to Garland in its “request” letter a purported federal “statute” … which does not exist. Specifically, the NSBA letter urges Garland to conduct an “expedited review” of available investigative and “enforcement mechanisms” to accomplish the goals of the NSBA, including review of “appropriate enforceable actions” under, among other “laws,” the “Violent Interference with Federally Protected Rights statute” and the “Conspiracy Against Rights” statute.
While there does exist 18 U.S.C. § 241 entitled “Conspiracy against rights,” there is no federal statute captioned “Violent Interference with Federally Protected Rights.” That title is an NSBA-concocted neologism. And the NSBA’s festooning of the words with capitalized letters to give them the patina of an official imprimatur is a bit disingenuous.
The NSBA probably intends a reference to 18 U.S.C. § 245 entitled (by Congress, not by amateur wordsmiths at the NSBA): “Federally protected activities.” Note as well that it is not “rights” which the statute protects, but instead “activities.” Oh, and it is worth mentioning that wholly apart from the sanctions imposed elsewhere for “domestic terrorism” – also intimated as to parents attending school board meetings – in the NSBA letter, the punishment under 18 U.S.C. § 241 for conspiracies can, upon conviction, range from a fine and imprisonment up to and including…, death.
That’s right, Virginia, the NSBA is requesting the U.S. Attorney General to engage in an expedited review of available investigative tools and “enforcement mechanisms” under statutes including those relating to “domestic terrorism” and conspiracies against “rights” which result in loss of life which could result in sentences of death. And Garland seems to be OK with that.
To repeat, faithful P&E readers, this is what happens… every…, single…, time…, when Democrats are allowed into positions of power and control. And if you think that the foregoing outrages are the end of the Democrat demolition derby, think again: inflation is accelerating exponentially; thousands of Americans remain abandoned by the Goof in Afghanistan, soon to become hostages at the whim of the Taliban; and lurking on the horizon is the creation of a federal central bank “digital currency” surveillance program to be overseen by the Goof’s nominee for Comptroller of the Currency, one Saule Omarova, a Moscow State University graduate on a Lenin Personal Academic Scholarship.
Now, even more so than last month, when your humble servant floated the “out-of-the-box” hypothetical for five patriotic Democrats to switch their political party allegiances from the Democrat Party to the GOP – which hypothetical, by the way, has generated approximately zero interest – the time for action has arrived.
Look at it this way: in but nine brief months, the clown behind the viral chant of “Let’s Go Brandon” has crippled the economy; abandoned thousands of American citizens to the Fifth Century hyenas of the Taliban in Afghanistan, arming them with over $80 billion in military equipment and a gigantic functioning air base which China will likely eventually use; and done everything possible to further divisions between and among Americans. “Let’s Go Brandon” should become the ubiquitous bumper sticker for the foreseeable future. And that should have started day before yesterday.
Accordingly, having read again of the travails of Don Quixote, your humble servant once more advances the far left field suggestion that if five patriotic House Democrats were to experience a “Reagan epiphany” and switch to the GOP – and do so now – the Goof’s tsunami of outrageous efforts to “fundamentally transform America” would be slowed, and perhaps even stopped.
And if an outright abandonment of the Democrat Party and jump to the GOP is seen as “a bridge too far,” then at least leaving the Democrats and becoming an Independent who would caucus with the Republicans might be a good alternative. The goal, of course, is to rid the lower chamber of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House and lay the groundwork for the Goof’s impeachment, which has now become an existential imperative.
Hey, if Ronald Reagan did it; if Andrew Yang did it; if Tulsi Gabbard might do it, the five House Democrats who have announced that they will not be running again could etch their names in history by doing the right thing. Now.
And with folks now openly suggesting that Senator Joe Manchin (D. WVA) should consider bolting, if the harassment of Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D. AZ) by leftists continues, one wonders: might she be considering the same? How sweet would that be?
