The topic of discussion for the Constitution Monday concerns the type of government in the United States of America. The Declaration of Independence was signed near the beginning of an eight-year war to win independence from Great Britain. The U.S. Constitution begins “We The People” and created a government described by President Abraham Lincoln as being a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” For more than 235 years, Americans have enjoyed greater liberties and freedoms than people in any other nation in the world. However, things have been changing.
The changes began under the administration of President Barack Obama, but they were set back by the administration of President Donald Trump. Then Joe Biden was elected as POTUS, and the changes picked up speed again. According to Deroy Murdock, Biden acts like Erich Honecker, and the U.S. government looks more like the government of East Germany as time passes.
Much like East Germany’s final dictator, Biden brooks no dissent. He vilifies over 74 million Americans who voted for Trump as “ultra-MAGA Republicans,” “extremists,” and “semi-fascists.”
Even worse, Comrade Joe Honecker has unleashed the FBI—America’s Stasi, or secret police—to terrorize dissenters.
• The unprecedented raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, in a dispute over classified or (per Trump) declassified documents, should have been settled in court, at worst, not at gunpoint. These “classified” materials included Trump’s privileged legal documents, tax papers, medical records, passports, other nongermane materials, as well as former first lady Melania Trump’s garments and even items in teenage son Barron’s bedroom.
• The FBI has seized the cell phones of at least nine Trump allies including former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark; House Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry, R-Pa.; Nevada GOP Chairman Michael McDonald; campaign strategist Mike Roman; election security expert Douglas Frank; and My Pillow founder Mike Lindell.
•The Honecker-Harris regime’s radical War on Attorney-Client Privilege has capsized that ancient legal norm. The FBI has invaded the offices of, and snatched phones from Trump’s legal advisers. These include John Eastman, Boris Epshteyn, Rudolph W. Giuliani, and Victoria Toensing.
•These Americans were among the 35 to 40 Trump supporters who have endured FBI raids, federal subpoenas, or both. My Fox News colleague Tucker Carlson quoted relevant subpoenas. They’re probing Americans who made “Any claim that the Vice President and/or the President of the Senate had the authority to reject or choose not to count presidential electors.”
Murdock reminded his readers that there is nothing illegal about claiming that there was election fraud. Democrats in Congress raised loud doubts about the fairness of the 1968, 2000, 2004, and 2016 elections. At those times, Democrats claimed that “certain states’ electoral votes should be replaced with others.” However, Democrats are using this denial of the results of an election to beat back America First supporters. They are also the basis for unconstitutional acts by the FBI and Department of Justice.
Right or wrong, under the U.S. Constitution and the Electoral Count Act of 1887, Democrats had every right to inquire whether Richard Nixon, George W. Bush, and Trump won the White House, fair and square. Democrats were in the clear even when they outlandishly claimed that Trump stole Alabama and Wyoming, despite winning 62% and 68% of the vote in those states.
Republicans, in and out of Congress, also had and have every legal right to object to the 2020 election for all the reasons and in all the ways that Democrats did in previous years.
When Democrats claim that Republicans cheated, they win applause for their political courage.
When Republicans claim that Democrats cheated, they get stopped by the FBI, confronted in public, deprived of their cellphones, subjected house raids, arrested in front of their families and friends, and tossed in jail.
Such speech is supposed to be free for both Democrats and Republicans because it is protected by the First Amendment. However, only Democrats have the right to free speech because Republicans are raided by the FBI. America is not East Germany, and such tactics should not be taking place in the United States.
