Losing the Republic (December 15th, 2023)

Sponsored by:


Yesterday, 147 Republicans in congress sided with 163 democrats and violated their oath of office by agreeing to an extension of the FISA warrantless spying program, also known as Section 702, in clear violation of the 4th amendment.


This happened on the same day that former FBI official Charles McGonigal, who helped investigate Trump for the "Russian Collusion" hoax using section 702, was sentenced to 4 years in prison for- you guessed it- colluding with Russia. Oh, the irony.....


Also included in that bill was the continued military funding of abortions, that the white house wanted. In short, a massive victory for Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, the military industrial complex, war incorporated, and the swamp, and a huge middle finger to the US Constitution and We the People.


I spoke a couple of weeks ago about how the uniparty, swamp, and global elites want to take away our power of choice in who governs us. Well, you can add to that the fact that they don't give a rat's rear end about what we think. They ain't listening to us. And they don't care... I guess it really is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. 


So how does a congressional representative like Michael Waltz or Elise Stefanik go from talking tough on cable TV and in town halls to caving when the time comes to carry out the wishes of their constituents? What is the root cause of such a betrayal? 


Well, number one is money. Representatives need money to run campaigns, and many talk a big game but are lousy fund raisers, so they are beholden to leadership and lobbies to fund their campaigns. There are also "income opportunities" to be had if you are just willing to "play along."


Number two is the simple fact that many representatives are in over their heads, and incapable of independent thought. The job is too big for them. They do the bidding of leadership without question because it makes their lives easier. Don't believe me? Watch them pass the omnibus in a couple of weeks, and did you see the actual text of the defense authorization bill? It was so voluminous they had to bring it into the chamber on a hand truck. Nobody actually read that.


Number three is a simple axiom. With the notable exception of politicians like Trump, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and our own Cory Mills, almost all politicians above the level of small-town mayor are only interested in 3 things- the acquisition, expansion, and retention, of power. 


The Declaration of Independence states that to secure our unalienable rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their powers from the consent of the governed. Is there really anybody stupid enough to think that 3/4 of the American people want or consent to warrantless spying?


The declaration further states that, whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it. 


Stolen elections, warrantless spying, using lawfare to imprison political rivals and dissidents, running up $33 trillion in debt, supporting clandestine color revolutions and foreign wars that in no way are in our interest, the destruction of our culture, regulation by fiat, currency manipulation by the federal reserve, propaganda, misinformation, and lying..... all done without the consent of the governed.  Who the heck is for any of that?


We can't abolish the government without abolishing the union but we can darned well alter it, and the only way is primarying every rep who voted for the NDAA, primarying every rep who votes for the coming omnibus, and re-electing President Trump so hopefully a real house cleaning can take place, this time WITH the consent of the governed.  


A republic, if you can keep it......... we're 11 months away.
