Can’t the Object of Politics be Good Government? by The Elephant's Child

Oh my. Democrats control the presidency, but they have an enormously unpopular president in office whose goals and actions are way out of line with the goals of the American people, at least as I read things. He made a colossal mess of Afghanistan, invited Central America to come and crash the border, I guess because he thought they would become Democrat voters once they got in. We have an orderly immigration process as part of our laws, and after he invited Central America to come and be illegal aliens, he invited Afghans to come as well. I didn’t know that we were so short of people in this country, did you?

I am not opposed to immigrants, I just want them to come the legal way and apply to become citizens the legal way. Then they will be welcomed. That’s why we have immigration laws, and a hardworking border patrol.

Last January President Trump invited protesters to come to the capitol and march down Pennsylvania Avenue to protest the irregularities in the election. There did seem to be an unusual amount of fraudulent vote. The man who voted and whose vote was counted who was born in 1824, I found somewhat troubling. (He was apparently real, just long dead)

Protesters did come to Washington, gathered in a plaza outside the capitol building, and when they were invited in by the Capitol Police, went in. They were respectful, and orderly, obeyed the velvet ropes, much as Democrats like to pretend they were violent, there is film of the whole thing, and there was no violence nor even disrespectful acts. It was a Capitol Policeman that shot Ashli Babbit. and even the guy with the furs and horns exhibited not the slightest bit of violence other than the furs and horns.

Democrats have described the protests in the most onerous terms, as “one of the darkest days of our democracy” The protesters as “Domestic terrorists” said they were “carrying racist and anti-Semitic symbols” into the Capitol, “committing acts of vandalism and desecration” Susan Wild (D-PA) said that her new legislation would help to ensure the sobering consequences of violent anti democratic rhetoric may never be lost to history. (talk about a little self-importance! Embarrassing!) But keep in mind that Democrats have in office a president who is one of the most unpopular presidents in American history, and as inflation climbs and Covid increases he gets more unpopular every day, and they are going to have to run him again. So expect a lot of attempt to make January 6 into something evil, wrong, illegal, It will require a major effort on their part.

I am really uncomfortable with these kinds of political games. I want our politics to be straightforward, honest and and an attempt to advance our precious democracy. Fat chance, I guess.

If you can’t win by playing by the rules or ethical conduct, then you get to show us your real character by how you abuse authority.

By good government you mean governance by the consent of the governed? Did we consent to gross incompetence? Did we consent to bureaucrats making rules to mandate medical procedures like vaccinations?

I’m with you! A bunch of protesters in the plaza outside the Capitol Building were invited in by the Capitol Police. They walked around peacefully (there is film) obeying the velvet ropes, touching nothing, and Democrats are trying to turn it into a violent invasion? Oh please! Democrats are in a deep hole for the upcoming mid-terms, Biden’s approval ratings are in the tank, he is deeply unpopular. Trump was a very good president, on top of the virus immediately, preventing visitors from China and starting work on a protective vaccination, even sending hospital ships to major ports..Got the economy humming again, I never understood the Trump Derangement syndrome, but it was obviously there. Now they are trying to turn a bunch of peaceful protesters walking through the Capitol Building and obeying the guiding velvet ropes into a movement to overthrow the government? I for one, am keeping track of how these events are portrayed by the media, and scratching a lot of media sources off the list.

If the federal government had done a good job of explaining the virus and what we know and what we don’t know, and why vaccinations would help to protect — we wouldn’t have needed any stupid mandates.

The purpose of today’s fake outrage by universally Democrats was to bait the governed into a physical confrontation, a riot, a demonstration. They want, they desperately need a real photo op to show people opposing them. They need a pretext to declare an insurrection in order to allow them (Democrats & bureaucrats) to seize power.

No one has to date been charged with insurrection, overthrow or treason…No One! The DOJ has charged over 700 people with mostly misdemeanors to date. The FBI has admitted no one had a gun on Capital grounds.

These people (Democrats) have no legimacy by demonstrating their hyperbolic pronouncements.
