Rule or Ruin

Guess which demographic group is most likely to approve of political assassinations? Young Democrat men.

Hopefully, events over the last 24 hours will cause the scales to fall from many eyes as decent Americans realize just how far the left will go to rule, not govern, our country. Radical leftists are pushing us to the brink of a disaster — culturally, economically and politically. They intend to rule or ruin America.

As you know, there was an attempt Wednesday to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh. The wannabe assassin said that he wanted to give his life meaning. That’s why he traveled from California to Washington, D.C. — to kill a Supreme Court justice to give his life purpose.

Why would he think that murdering Justice Kavanaugh would make him somebody special? Because he’s been told that conservatives on the Supreme Court are monsters. This is what the left’s constant rhetoric of hate predictably creates.

By the way, we’ve all seen how Antifa operates. Well, guess which demographic group is most likely to approve of political assassinations? Young Democrat men. (Maybe red-flag laws and gun bans aren’t such a bad idea after all … for Democrats!)

The Left’s Hate

When Judge Brett Kavanaugh was nominated for the Supreme Court, Democrats and their media allies attempted to assassinate his character. They went so far as to accuse him of “gang rape.” They allowed that horrifically offensive charge to be paraded on national television in front of his wife and daughters. But that was just the beginning.

In March of 2020, when the Supreme Court was considering another abortion decision, Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer went to the steps of the Supreme Court in front of a left-wing mob. He pointed back at the court and declared:

“I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh: You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

It’s not unusual in a charged political campaign for both sides to use aggressive rhetoric. “We’re targeting Congressman X” or “We’re going to take out Senator Y.”

But Supreme Court justices aren’t in campaigns. They serve for life. What possible meaning could Schumer’s words have — “You will pay the price” and “You won’t know what hit you” — other than threats of some kind?

Even mushy Chief Justice John Roberts condemned Schumer’s remarks as threatening and unacceptable.

Once again, the media are guilty of malfeasance. That clip of Schumer’s threat would have been the most obvious statement to run as a way of informing the public about the context of Wednesday’s shocking news. But they didn’t do it.

Now consider this mental exercise. As you know, Democrats want to pack the Supreme Court with at least four more left-wing hacks. Again, they can’t tolerate any opposition. They intend to rule or ruin.

But what if Kavanaugh or Clarence Thomas had gone to the steps of the Capitol and said, “Schumer, you’re going to reap the whirlwind. You won’t know what hit you. You will pay the price if you try to touch the Supreme Court”? The media would be apoplectic. That justice would be impeached.

And if someone later attempted to assassinate Chuck Schumer, all you would see over and over and over again would be that clip of that justice saying those words.

Blood On Their Hands

Make no mistake about it: If anything happens to one of the five conservative justices, their blood will be on the hands of the Biden Administration, their allies on Capitol Hill and their left-wing media allies.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is still refusing to hold a vote on bipartisan legislation to protect Supreme Court Justices and their families. (Reports yesterday suggest Pelosi may allow a vote on the legislation next week.)

Attorney General Merrick Garland will have blood on his hands. Wednesday, he said Kavanaugh’s attempted assassination was unacceptable. But he then looked the other way as the radical pro-death group Ruth Sent Us went back to Kavanaugh’s house to protest again Wednesday night — less than 24 hours after his would-be assassin was caught!

Let me remind you that it is a violation of federal law to protest outside of judges’ homes. And the attorney general does nothing.

On Jimmy Kimmel’s show Wednesday night, President Biden said that if the justices overturn Roe v. Wade, “It’s going to cause a mini-revolution.” He is still stoking more fear and hatred that will inevitably inspire more violence.

A Real Conspiracy

My friends, consider these facts:

  • A leftist law clerk breaks every historic norm of the court and leaks a draft opinion.

  • Weeks pass and the entire federal government is unable to figure out who did it. (But they’re supposed to keep us safe from our enemies.)

  • Powerful political figures use rhetoric that any reasonable person knows would trigger the unhinged and the deranged in a nation already racked with senseless crime and violence.

  • The Speaker of the House prevents additional security for the justices.

  • The attorney general refuses to enforce the law and allows radical leftists to go back to the home of a justice who was targeted less than a day ago.

Right there you have all the ingredients of a conspiracy to browbeat, intimidate, threaten and even harm the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States so that America will continue to destroy hundreds of thousands of innocent children every year.

There is more evidence of a conspiracy here than anything that happened on January 6th. Ironically, that show trial began last night.

Pelosi’s “Must See TV”

For your viewing pleasure, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are presenting a summer spectacular extravaganza. It’s the January 6th Committee, live and in primetime! I know you just can’t wait to tune in.

Of course, there have been many televised congressional hearings before. Watergate. Iran Contra. Supreme Court confirmation hearings. But there’s never been anything like this.

Here’s one big difference: In every hearing held by Congress both sides are ALWAYS represented. But there will be no Republican representation during the Pelosi Show.

Every member of this committee was handpicked by Nancy Pelosi. In an unprecedented exercise of raw political power, Pelosi rejected the choices of House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, and picked her own “Republicans” to sit on the committee. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger are eagerly allowing themselves to be tools of the far left.

Not surprisingly, the American people have a dim view of this charade. Polling shows that just 28% of Americans believe the committee is a “serious attempt to find out what happened” on January 6th. Meanwhile, the approval rating of the Democrat-dominated Congress is a dismal 16%.

This is nothing more than a Soviet-style show trial. You’re only going to hear one side. The committee is stacked and the witnesses are stacked. This is theater, not a legislative process.

Further proving the point, Democrats even brought in James Goldston, a former ABC executive, to produce the Pelosi Show. Rather fittingly, Goldston is perhaps best known for spiking stories about notorious sex offender Jeffery Epstein.

So, a man known for hiding the truth is in charge of the production. That speaks volumes.

And I guarantee it will be a good production because that’s exactly what it is. It’s propaganda. The kind of thing the Nazis really excelled at in order to demonize their enemies. The communists used this same technique from 1917 in Moscow to this very day in Beijing. That’s all this is — smearing Donald Trump and demonizing his supporters.

What You Won’t See

There are many questions surrounding the events of January 6th that deserve answers, but you won’t get them. For example:

  • How many federal agents were in the crowd on January 6th? Why were they there? What did they do? Did they exhort or foment violence in the crowd?

  • Why won’t the Biden Administration release the thousands of hours of video from that day? We already know from some video that police officers opened some doors to the Capitol Building and many people believed they were allowed to enter. Who “left the doors open”?

  • The Capitol Hill Police conducted a major “after-action” review. Their final report identified “53 areas of failure” in the security procedures on January 6th. This review was concluded last June. Why are we just now learning about it?

  • Why is Nancy Pelosi refusing to answer any questions about her role in the security failures at the Capitol that day?

  • Donald Trump approved plans to authorize the deployment of 20,000 National Guard troops but it was rejected. Why?

That last point should be the end of this entire charade. It’s impossible to accuse Trump of orchestrating an insurrection when he offered thousands of troops to protect the Capitol. Nancy Pelosi should have resigned in disgrace.

Why Now?

January 6, 2021, was 520 days ago. It was 74 weeks ago. It was 17 months ago. Why are these “hearings” happening now?

It’s political. Even the New York Times admits it. The national average for gas broke $5.00 a gallon yesterday. Democrats are desperate to change the subject.

They’re careening toward an electoral cliff this November. If they lose 40 House seats, they will likely lose the Senate, too. Everything would change.

There would be multiple investigations of the Biden Administration, including Hunter Biden. Joe Biden could be (and should be) impeached. What is looming five months from now is an existential threat to the Democrat Party.

We already know what the left is capable of. They will stop at nothing to salvage their chances in this election.

And it’s not just this election. Rep. Jim Jordan said, correctly in my view, that this charade is ultimately aimed at preventing Donald Trump from running again. Democrats are terrified that he might actually win a second term and succeed in completing his MAGA agenda.

There is tremendous pressure from the far left for the “Justice Department” to prosecute Trump. And Pelosi’s kangaroo court is laying the foundation.

ACTION ITEM: Call the Capitol Hill switchboard now at 202-224-3121, especially if your representative is a Democrat. Be polite, but make it clear that these hearings are a farce while the country is sinking into a deep economic disaster, while we’re suffering from Joe Biden’s record of failure — record gas prices, record crime, record COVID deaths, record illegal immigration and record inflation.
