It seems likely that, one way or another, Biden and his handlers will invade and occupy the Executive Mansion in January. That will only be symbolic since they already possess most of the Executive branch of government. Conservative commentators, always wishful thinkers, are now telling us that it won’t be too bad---after all, Biden is weak and the Republicans have the Senate.
This happy talk is just another way to disarm us. Biden’s handlers don’t need Congress. They have the courts, the entire coercive power of law enforcement, and their controlled mobs in the streets. And pervasive mastery of the media that will justify all that they may do. They have already shown their disregard of law, their ability to punish those who don’t go along, and their proclivity for supra-constitutional “executive orders.”
Of course, the revolutionaries also have a vast population of cowardly and obedient subjects to do their will and fill their ubiquitous offices and chattering spots.
Many of those Republican Senators are closer in spirit to Biden than to Trump. And whoever heard of Republicans sacrificing their power and perks to oppose what appears in the media as popular? They will likely be allowed to hang on as a token “opposition.”
The coup will be completed quickly with the enfranchisement of uncounted Third World illegals and the seemingly unstoppable progress of “wokeness” among the young.
Any obstacle to the revolution will not be anything Republicans can or will do. The revolutionary cadre will be forced, in order to consolidate their power, to suppress the violent elements who think they are not radical enough and to stamp out the mobs when they get out of hand and actually threaten them.
Some of their measures may simply fall of their own foolishness and unenforceability –like universal mask wearing and vaccination. It is also likely that the blowback from the aggressive interventionism undertaken from their delusions of omnipotence will reveal their weaknesses and bring problems for them (and for us).
May we hope that the 2nd Amendment may survive? The revolution will do all in its power to disarm the law-abiding, indirectly if not directly. Anarcho-tyranny is here. In every Western country except the U.S., the citizens have tamely given up their arms to the government. Will Americans do the same? I would like to think that too many citizens are still free people in spirit and that universal “gun control” will not succeed. But can we be sure?
But, Oh!, say the Pollyannas, we have all those new Republican judges! Those Federalist Society nationalists love supreme national government power as much as the leftists. Their intent is to preserve an American constitutional system that no longer exists. If you believe they will do anything substantive to oppose the revolution, you are delusional and should see a shrink.
Republican judges will be an obstacle to our only real hope: that some of the red States before they are overwhelmed will develop bold and determined leaders who will confront federal power with the latent powers of the States. Devolution, true federalism, and the break-up of the evil empire are the only chance, and it is a slim one.
The “conservative Republicans,” who have never in the entire course of American history conserved anything except their money, will never acknowledge that they lost long ago and that we all face a new regime. And they lost because they never mounted any sincere and effective opposition to the ongoing revolution. It is too late for the formation of a genuine opposition party. The Deep State’s power to break up any opposition opinion and organisation is as strong as in any Communist state, although the machinery of suppression by prison and death is not yet fully in place.
The Republicans lament Kamala Harris, and AOC and, and Ilhan Omar. As usual, they are shortsighted and cowardly and looking for easy targets. It is they who voted for immigration expansion and refused to enforce the border laws. And now they complain about the consequences of their actions.
It is generally reported that Communism failed with the fall of the Soviet Union. Nazis were rightly punished for their crimes. Reflect that “communism” has fallen and that nobody has been punished for its crimes. They have merely moved on to other posts.
America is now a one-party, one-opinion regime based on leftwing resentment, power lust, and prophecies of Utopia when the last enemies are eliminated. The destruction of “systemic racism” will justify any deformation of natural society and any abuse and punishment of the unwoke.
