The socialist revolution that began with the election of the immediate past president in 2008 was scheduled to go uninterrupted with the election of Hillary Clinton. The American people, however, said “No,” disrupting the revolutionary remake of the United States. What followed in its wake has been a three-year temper tantrum by radical leftists with their hearts’ set on overturning the current government. They call it the “resistance movement” and those who lost the last election foment it. Clinton and the past president called for it. Congress and the media are following suit. It is the largest obstruction of governance in American history. This is the visceral new normal. Your very freedoms are threatened.
Article I Section 8.15 of the Constitution says Congress shall have the power ” To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions.” Article 3 Section 1.1 defines treason as, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Section 4 states: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”
In his 1796 farewell speech, George Washington warned that parties and factions were a danger to Liberty, “They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.” This is exactly what is happening today-an artful minority attempting to impose its will against the people. We see it in the media’s narrative, the obstruction toward governing, and in the deep-rooted shadows of the deep state.
So when does it go too far? I would suggest that the answer is found in the very mission statements of the groups instigating this nationwide rebellion. Communist Party USA, Islamic Society of North America, Council on American Islamic Relations, Moveon.org, Human Rights Campaign, Planned Parenthood, National Education Association, and the factions and people-elected or otherwise–that work with them-all contain language, subtle or direct, that is against the Constitutional Republic form of government. Just as they spew the very hate they accuse others of doing, their brand of “patriotism” is of a similar nature against our guarantees of liberty. It has already gone too far. As Jesus said in Matthew 7:16, ” You shall know them by their fruits.”
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
