So, this is a loaded question. There isn’t a monolithic consciousness that pervades all of the Right and aligns everyone’s opinions. I have friends who really only care about the Supreme Court and are praying for a Roberts-proof lock on the voting. Then I know guys who more than anything else in the world want to see Comey and all his superiors all the way up to Barry O get frog-marched into prison for their treasonous crimes over the last several years. And I know plenty of people who believe as an article of faith that unless the illegal immigrants are ejected by the tens of millions in the next couple of years that America will be finished.
Look at this list and the other priorities you know about; First Amendment violations, Second Amendment outrages, social media discrimination, job offshoring, etc. These priorities are all over the place. What pattern or organizing principle can clarify how all of these goals are related?
A couple of years ago I wrote a post in which I compared the present illegal immigration situation to a sinking ship. The steps I outlined to solve the problem were:
- Step One – Plug the hole.
- Step Two – Pump out the water.
- Step Three – Repair the damage.
- Step Four – Review cause of crash and take measures to prevent recurrence.
I laid out what each of these steps translated into with respect to the immigrant problem but it’s easy enough to guess what they were.
Thinking back to that analogy and looking at all the other problems listed above I have to modify the model. It’s not as if we struck a reef and a hole has to be repaired. It’s like a group of maniacal saboteurs armed with explosives has systematically blasted a dozen separate holes in the hull and is in fact still setting up additional charges. In a situation like that plugging holes is not the first order of business. The first job is to liquidate the saboteurs.
For that reason, I agree with the folks who want to prosecute the Coup and throw the book at them. These people are an existential threat to us and as long as they are still in place, we will never make any progress on wresting control of our lives back into our own hands. Comey, Brennan, Clapper and the rest of the conspirators have attempted to overthrow the lawfully elected President of the United States and although they failed, they are still walking the streets unpunished and waiting to get back to work as soon as they have another chance. These people are a de facto oligarchy that decide what is allowed to occur in the federal government and even who is allowed to run it.
Since J. Edgar Hoover started blackmailing Jack Kennedy back in the 1960s the security apparatus has been dictating policy from behind the scenes and controlling many of the elected officials that we thought were the decision makers. Does it go above these coup leaders? Maybe we’ll find out. If the lower level guys squeal on the mid-level rats I would imagine that anything is possible. But this will require that William Barr is both genuinely patriotic and absolutely fearless. It’s hard to believe that we could be that lucky. Once again, we’re about to find out. It’s way past the time for Barr to start getting results from Durham’s investigations. After the acquittal some people have stated that the first indictments are about to be handed down in the next few weeks. Well, I’ve heard that many times before. But I’m interested in seeing what is the result. As stated above I thing that prosecuting these people is the only way to head off further damage to our country. Otherwise we’re just chasing yesterday’s disaster and never catching up.
