There is the chutzpah of politicians then there is the malfeasance of Nancy Pelosi. I am writing this article as I hear the two-faced and forked-tongued grifter Pelosi slither lies and infect the public airwaves with her poisonous rhetoric. Born in Baltimore, she relieved the Charm City after graduating from college only to infest San Francisco in the mid-1970’s with a brand of duplicity that is unmatched in the Golden State’s history.
Nancy Pelosi is a testament to the human spirits of hypocrisy and skullduggery. She controls the Democrat party with a mix of ruthlessness and chicanery in ways that would have made Machiavelli blush. Hearing her now as she preens on TV and pretends to be outraged at the events that unfolded last week is a theater of the absurd mixed with a production of shiftiness. What we are witnessing this afternoon is not democracy in action, it is criminality in full 1o80p HD glory. Hidden behind the dog and pony show that is the impeachment trial is a military presence is the District of Columbia the likes we have not seen since the Civil War.

The main thrust behind the Democrat’s impeachment drive is that Donald Trump incited an insurrection and that he deserves to be removed from office less than a week before his administration comes to an end because he betrayed his oath of office. Let me assure you that it is not Donald Trump who is in the Democrat’s crosshairs, what the party of Andrew Jackson, George Wallace, Robert Byrd and Joe Biden—a succession of racists that span the existence of their party—are after is our ability to assemble and freedom of speech itself.
As much as they are lambasting Trump, Democrats are taking to the lectern one after the other to castigate the protestors who “invaded the US Capitol”. They are creating a bogeyman so terrifying that Biden will have a perfect pretext to lower the hammer and severely restrict our freedoms under the guise of protecting the public. Through repetition, they are drilling into the minds of the American people that anyone who demands accountability and rebels against authority is a terrorist who must be dealt with severely.
What is truly repulsive is the way Democrats are once again using the pains of African-Americans and the fears of minorities in order to pit neighbor against neighbor. Sadly, most Americans are so indoctrinated by the politics of division that they don’t even take a second to look up and realize how racism is being weaponized in order to splinter the United States apart. If you think Democrats care an iota about the plight of “black” people, my friend I have a bridge to sell you in Mar-a-Lago. They are demonizing “white” protestors today but the very precedent they are using to silence the right will in due time be wielded to suffocate the rest.
Let’s get one thing straight, Americans have a constitutional right to overthrow their government, the same way the founders vanquished British governance, if they believe that they are being ruled without consent. The Declaration of Independence—which is the thread that wove together the fabric of our republic—expressly notes that We the People have the right “to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness”.
What the United States Congress is doing at this exact moment is not holding Trump’s feet to the flames, they are setting the very idea of seeking redress and rebelling against despotism on fire. Trump is just the convenient tool of the moment; within the next couple of years, he will be lavished with praise by the very people who are upbraiding him the same way Bush is now embraced by the Obamas and the liberal order.
Unlike Trump’s popularity which will be revived, the vise they are tightening around our collective freedoms and rights of privacy will never be reversed. If you listen closely to Pelosi and her ilk as they spew invectives against the orange president and his supporters, you will realize that they are actually eulogizing the Bill of Rights. They are forcefully making the point that anyone who dares to challenge authority is seditious and a traitor to their country. As they speak about Jefferson in one breath, they parrot tin pot dictators like Hitler and Pol Pot who used manufactured emergencies in order to snuff out liberty and demonize dissent.
Let me repeat what I noted last week; the people who rushed into the US Capitol were not terrorists, they were Americans who had every right to be pissed off and had every reason to demand an audience from politicians who supposedly work for us. I don’t consider what they did to be an affront, the true outrage are not commoners who rush the halls of power but billionaires and their paid lobbyists who blitzkrieg our government on a daily basis with dark money in order to subvert our “democracy” and commandeer fiscal and economic policies.
I call bullshit against anyone who equates the protestors from last week with an uncontrolled mob. For the record, most of the people who entered the chambers of Congress last week were actually invited by the Capitol police. This whole thing reeks of a false flag that was planned and executed in order to give birth to an age of totalitarianism that is about to envelop the United States once Joe Biden is inaugurated. Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen, we are about to understand very intimately how Italians and Germans felt in the 1940’s.
This outlandish impeachment of Donald Trump is but a sample of what is to come. In the coming weeks and months, Joe Biden will be given a mandate by way of Trump’s potential conviction to unleash the full force and might of the US military in order to “restore law and order” and any form of rebellion against the excesses of the Federal, state and local governments. That rebellion could be people who refuse to take the Covid-19 vaccine or those who refuse to adhere to lockdowns that have proven to be ineffectual and draconian in nature. We are watching in real time the expiration of the American experiment in self-governance, an experiment that derailed a long time ago, and the ascension of authoritarianism.
I return to the article I wrote just yesterday to close out this article of defiance; if we care about our freedoms and the rights we cherish, we must act now. I am working with fellow Americans from black to white, from progressive to conservative and all stripes of identities and ideologies in between, to organize a wildcat strike slated to start on January 20th and continue until our government stops stepping on our necks and instead becomes responsive to us.
Like John F. Kennedy once said, “those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable”. What we are seeing before our eyes are elected officials in Washington DC making it impossible for peaceful revolutions to come to fruition. Lawmakers are about to learn the lesson dictators throughout history learned the hard way; stifling the will of the people only leads to the burial of those who rule with the brute force of bullets or the false choices of ballots:: Click To Tweet
