America is being “fundamentally changed” at a rapid pace. It appears that President
Biden is on track to bring back everything that Obama did in his eight years in office. We
are also finding out that big tech oligarchs are the ones who really run this country.
Everyone who has been paying attention to the news could see this coming. Others are
either surprised or very pleased. If you are one of the 74 million+ who voted for
President Trump you are not happy. The question is what are we going to do about it?
The Left is in the process of condemning everything the Republicans are doing and
saying about what is being orchestrated by the Left. They are taking things out of
context and grossly misrepresenting what the conservative party is saying or doing. As
an example, when someone on the left says or does something hateful, such as trying
to kill Republican Congressmen, Steve Scalise, the Left and the willing media will only
blame the person who committed the crime. When someone on the right commits a
hateful act, the Left blames all Republicans and conservatives, as a whole.
In December 2019 I wrote an article entitled “America Upside Down.” In it I talked about
how things that we considered good are now bad and things that we have always
thought of as bad are now portrayed as good. That was 14 months ago and things are
much worse today. George Orwell, in his book “1984,” writes about the “Ministry of
Truth.” The Left is now suggesting that the government appoint a Reality Czar to head
an agency that would be responsible to decide what is truth and what is not.
Orwell writes, “Every record has been destroyed or falsified.” “Every book has been
rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has
been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day
and minute by minute. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is
always right.” I am terrified as I see this happening in America today.
I believe that the Left is at war with America and its principles. One of the first things
that President Biden has done is disband the 1776 Commission as he champions the
1619 Project. The 1776 Commission was designed to teach, in our schools, the true
history of this nation. The 1619 Project teaches that America was founded on a lie and
that it has been a racist country from its inception. Is this the Left choosing a present
day context for history? Is “Reality Czar” just a different title for “Ministry of Truth?”
On January 6, 1941, Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave his State of the Union address to
the nation a month after declaring war on the Axis powers. That speech has become
known as the “Four Freedoms” speech. In it he spoke of his vision for a world in which
all people have freedom of speech and religion, and freedom from want and fear. This
was such a powerful speech that Norman Rockwell painted four paintings depicting
those four freedoms. Oh, how things have changed in today’s America.
As of this writing President Biden has issued 41 Executive Orders. He has re-
engaged with the World Health Organization, revoked the permit for the Keystone oil
pipeline, and launched an initiative to advance racial equity, whatever that is. He
reversed the travel ban targeting Muslim countries, while making it easier for illegal
aliens to enter through our southern border by cancelling construction of the border wall.
He is requiring the wearing of face masks at airports and other modes of transportation
as well as on all government property. He is ending the use of private prisons. He has
paused new oil and gas leasing on U.S. lands/waters while elevating climate change as
a national-security and foreign-policy priority. And, he has lifted restrictions on abortion
funding, meaning tax payers will be paying for abortions even though half of the country
believes abortion to be immoral. All this without consulting with Congress.
What we have today is one-party rule with the Left working hard to ensure that it stays
that way. Our founding fathers knew the danger of that when they rejected the Idea of a
King in favor of representative government. They knew the dangers of one-party rule
when writing the Declaration of Independence. The first words of that noble document
say, “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to
dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume
among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of
Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind
requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are
endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,
Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are
instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
One-party rule of either the Left or the Right is a sure prescription for disaster and
usually leads to tyranny. We all want to be free from fear and want, but not at the
expense of our freedom to speak and worship as we please. I am not advocating a
revolution, just fidelity to the Constitution. I am advocating that every true patriot take a
serious look at their elected officials and only vote for those who truly believe in the
ideals that made America great.
