The Republican orgy over the orchestrated ouster of Biden in the matter of classified, “highly sensitive” state-documents, demonstrates how this lot, the GOP, is unseriousness about first-principle obligations to the voters. These are:
* Impeaching Biden for the country invaded and consequently permanently altered. From here on in, America will be what I term in my book, Into the Cannibal’s Pot, a dominant-party state.
* Demanding day-in, day-out that the 4-5 million outlaws invited into out country illegally be rounded up and deported, and not one more penny be stolen from taxpayers to pay for their keep and safe passage into American communities.
* Repealing all manner of Covid tyranny, including the ban on white, unvaccinated non-citizens from vising the US. Why do I assert that the travel ban on the unvaccinated is anti-white ? Because the reg says that foreigners from “countries with limited COVID-19 vaccine availability” may stream into the USA unvaccinated! This rule is a proxy for race, engineered to privilege brown and black Third Worlders and oust whites.
*Besides, why is the Administrative State—the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) legislating around our right of freedom of movement, and that of our friends and trading partners? Is it not an opportune time for the fucking GOP castrati to challenge the Managerial State’s usurpation of constitutional rights?
*Beating back crime and lawlessness: Clearing cities of homeless encampments, allowing cops to stop crime and for citizens to defend person and property against it.
*Defunding all institutions that practice woke anti-whiteness: schools, tertiary, secondary, primary.
*Launching Civil Rights action against any financial institution engaged in financial deplatforming based on thought crimes and impolite speech.
* Ceasing to bait the Russian bear, forcing a diplomatic solution on that kept man, Zelensky.
Or, given how dumb the GOP (RIP) is, just do what the good Governor Ron DeSantis is doing, but amplified.
UPDATE (1/28): The Mar-a-Lago Vs. Delaware distinction.
Other strictly partisan, less-philosophical conservatives, like Victor Davis Hansen, will try and draw distinctions around classified documents between their guy’s infractions, Biden’s, and our guy’s transgressions. This “Trump did it right” vs. “Biden did it wrong” case is an extension of the original distraction.
In fact, you don’t have to read such an undignified argument—I don’t—to know that it is NOT and argument from first principles.
