Everything You Wanted to Know About Peaceful Protests by The Elephant's Child

Peaceful protests! peaceful protests! peaceful protests!: If you wondered why the violence you are seeing online in Portland particularly, and in Seattle, the boarded up small businesses with the broken windows, the graffiti emblazoned on statues and buildings, walls and streets is somewhat inaccurately described as “peaceful protests” it’s really quite simple. The First Amendment reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

As long as they can keep the protests “peaceful”, the Feds are disrupting them illegally, and can be blamed with all the insults and vile language, legitimately.

That’s why Attorney General William Barr was called before Congress to testify today before Jerry Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee. Mr. Barr is not a pushover just because he’s been asked to testify, and made mincemeat of several questioners. There are many videos of the committee testimony available.

And here’s the video that Congressman Nadler did not want the committee or the newspeople to see:



Newly Confirmed Attorney General Bill Barr Wastes No Time! by The Elephant's Child

Newly-confirmed Attorney General Bill Barr spoke today to the National Association of Attorneys General. He laid out in no uncertain terms the negative effects of a porous border.

Barr preceded his warning by noting the rising number of opioid deaths in the United States, particularly the effects of Chinese fentanyl, which is used by Mexican drug cartels to augment the effects of their heroin supply. “The DEA has stated publicly that the Mexican trans national criminal organizations are the greatest criminal drug threat to the United States,” Barr declared, adding “the DEA tells us that the majority of the heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and fentanyl in this country got here across our southern border.”

This is  very big deal indeed, and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are so intent on trying to bring down the duly elected President of the United States, and refuse to help him in any way – that they are responsible for every drug death in the United States, every rape or murder by an illegal alien, every criminal act, and the drain on taxpayer money from their use of federal welfare benefits, and the cost of schooling for their kids.

Democrats want open borders because the upcoming census (so-far) counts only bodies, not citizens, and the numbers of bodies determines the number of representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives, and who has control. The Senate, according to the Constitution, is made up of two Senators for each state, so that each of the states has equal representation. You have perhaps noticed that Democrats want to change the Constitution so that the Senate also is based on the popular vote.

Perhaps it has something to do with having had a  community organizer in charge for 8 years, which gave them the power they crave so deeply. They have always resented and been antagonistic to every Republican president, but this time they seem to have gone fully certifiable.

To hell with the Constitution, the American form of government, and their determination is to find something, anything, to impeach the president for, if they can’t find anything, they will make something up. Is it because  he has got the economy booming, full employment, manufacturing growing, millions no longer needing food stamps, and is a president who is clearly a patriot?

Presidents are someone we hire, believing them capable of managing the country for four years, and then, if he or she has done  good job, we will give them another four. Presidents are neither Kings nor fairy godmothers to perform magic deeds, they’re supposed to use the powers of the presidency to try to fix what’s wrong, and do the best they can in a complicated world run by fallible human beings afflicted with greed and every character flaw known to mankind. That’s why the Founders only gave them four years at a time – they didn’t want them to settle in and get too comfortable. They wanted it to be a temporary job. We don’t, or shouldn’t, fall in love with presidents.

If you care about national borders, drugs and unneeded drug deaths, sex trafficking, child trafficking, taxpayer funding, you should probably make an effort to let your congressperson know that you do care, and will vote accordingly. Call their local office, or go to their Capitol address at House.gov or Senate.gov where you will find directions on how to contact your representative. They do pay attention  to their constituents, because they want to get re-elected. It’s a cushy job.
