The Republic is Under Attack

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
~ Tenth Amendment, 1791

By Alden L. Benton

The foundation of our Republic is under attack.  It is not from an external power, or even a terrorist state.  The Republic is under attack from a nefarious group of termites knowing its structure: The unelected, privileged class of the shadow government, or dark state, of entrenched bureaucrats.

These individuals, many who are holdovers from the Obama administration, are engaging in agenda-driven activities to undermine the new president, his policies, and his staff.

It could be argued that their discontent with President Trump is legitimate and, even as a public employee who serves at the pleasure of the president, they have a protected right to speak out against him.  Their discontent is not at issue rather it is their actions that I question.

The case of General Flynn, the president’s former national security advisor, clearly illustrates the danger of an extra-constitutional, unaccountable arm of the dark state populated by partisan bureaucrats who think that they, and their opinions, are superior to those of the people and our duly elected officials.

In the Flynn case, credible reports have surfaced that individuals in the so-called “intelligence” community have used the resources designed to protect the nation to bring down a political opponent with half-truths and unsubstantiated innuendo.

In addition, ever since the election, the dark state of intelligence gatherers has been “leaking” sensitive national security information to the media in attempts to embarrass the president and derail his foreign policy.

This disruption and breach of security is unprecedented.  At best, it is espionage; at worst, it is treason.

The president must step up efforts to investigate and ferret out the individuals responsible.  At a minimum, he must remove those responsible from their positions, ban them from government whether as a direct employee or contractor, and pursue criminal prosecution.

The secular progressives in their deranged opposition to President Trump will characterize the spies spying on the president as whistleblowers.

Mule fritters!

They are rogue bureaucrats who are willing to sacrifice individuals, national security, and the rule of law, on the godless altar of their own self-centered ideology.  In their utopian fantasy world, the only rule is the ends justify the means, no matter who gets hurt or what damage is caused.

More than 62 million people voted for Donald Trump.  He received 304 electoral votes.  We all have the right to disagree and to protest what the president does or does not do.  However, he is the president and he must govern as he sees fit within the constraints of the constitution and the rule of law. 

Opposition to his policies must also conform to the same principles.  Ordered liberty and our constitutional republic depend on the rule of law to which we all must conform, even the secular progressive subversives in the privileged elite of the dark state.

“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”  ~ James Madison, Federalist 47, 1788

Barry the Pimp

By Alden L. Benton

Once again, our beloved leader, King Barry I has shown his contempt for the Constitution and the people of the United States.  Rather than serving us and defending the Constitution, King Barry shreds the Constitution and doggedly continues his quest to divide and subjugate all Americans.

King Barry has added 2 million illegal aliens to the job market by exercising powers not granted to him by the Constitution or by Congress.  In effect, he has ordered his agents to ignore laws duly passed by Congress in order to gain favor with the Hispanic community.

President Obama is no better than a pimp.  He sells the power of his office to the highest bidder or to those groups he feels will secure his re-election.  Even at that, he is ineffective and incompetent.

Obama is a dangerous man.  He has surrounded himself with socialists and Marxists and with them has set up an extra-Constitutional, unaccountable shadow government.  Through that apparatus, he has assumed, and exercised, powers not granted by the Constitution.  In fact, King Barry and his band of crooks, cronies, and communists view the Constitution at best as a living document, at worst, as a nuisance.

Much ado has been raised over whether or not Obama is a citizen.  Even if he is a citizen, the real question is whether he is an American.  With the exception of the radical Left that has taken control of the Democratic Party, and other far Left fringe groups, the average American, including most Democrats, hold views that are slightly right of center.

Obama and his gang do not represent contemporary thought.  The radicalized Democratic Party does not represent it either.

Most Americans simply want to be left alone to work, raise their families, and pursue the activities that make them happy whether they are economic, recreational, or spiritual. 

Most Americans, like my Scots-Irish ancestors, want nothing to do with government or its wealth-redistribution schemes.  They know that those programs are actually pogroms designed to impoverish and enslave us on the government plantation.

America has had enough of Obama the Destroyer.  His policies and schemes have damaged our liberty and pushed the nation to the edge of insolvency.  And there is no end in sight.  Every time Obama opens his mouth, he proposes to spend more of our money on some scheme to reward his supporters with bailouts or loans.  In fact, it can be argued that America will not survive another four years of Obama.

Americans are not a stupid people, but like all human beings, we can be misled by clever charlatans.  There is an old saying that says fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.  We were fooled once by Obama’s pretty words promising hope and change.  Don’t be fooled again by his hollow promises and pandering. 

America needs a leader, not a clueless, leftist, pseudo-intellectual preening megalomaniac who refuses to take responsibility for his own actions and those of his administration. 

We need a leader we and our allies can trust, not a scheming deceiver and prevaricator. 

We need a leader who will heal our nation and our economy; a leader who will unite us rather than divide us. 

Finally, perhaps most of all, we need a leader who has faith in God and a firm belief in the Judeo-Christian ethic and the founding principles laid out in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America.

That leader is NOT B. Hussein Obama.
