One headline read “Republicans fail to stop tyranny once again. Are they Even trying?” Another reported that “Ted Cruz spills secret of GOP amnesty sabotage”. The latter began by telling readers that “U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, strongly suggested that the fix was in from the beginning by GOP leaders to sabotage the fight against Obama’s amnesty, saying, “The cake was baked from the start.”
Sen. Cruz is right, which proves again that it’s long past time for people to stop pretending that there’s any doubt that the GOP quislings and the Obama faction are working hand-in-glove. They mean to subvert both the territorial sovereignty of the United States and the political sovereignty of the American people. As I have been saying for some years, the supposed opposition between the GOP and the Obama faction Democrats on issues like border security and amnesty for illegal immigrants is a sham, a con game, a tactic intended to waste the energy and resources of Americans who still support the U.S. Constitution.
It’s also long past time to stop pretending that this is the result of the quisling GOP’s incompetence, or their political fears and calculations. Whatever posturing this or that Republican engages in for dramatic effect, the motive for the GOP’s betrayal lies in the elitist faction’s deep-seated contempt for government of, by and for the people. I read a report the other day about Jeb Bush’s denigration of American workers that illustrates this point. Addressing “a crowd of conservative activists, and again in a separate interview Bush claimed:
- That immigrants are more fertile than Americans;
- Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans; according to Bush they are “more entrepreneurial, they set up more businesses, they buy more homes, they’re more family oriented; they work in jobs that in many cases are jobs that have gone unfilled.”
- Referring to natural born Americans he say that “We have people that mope around thinking ‘my life is bad, my children will not have the same opportunities I had.’”
- He suggests that the antidote to these whiners is “to rebuild the demographic pyramid…fix a broken immigration system…” He implies that immigrants are better “equipped to be able to work.”
Elitist faction GOP leaders like Bush have connived at the assault on the God-endowed family, despite proven conservative arguments that an intact family structure is the key to educational and economic success. They also devised or collaborated in tax-payer funded bailouts that massively shifted America’s income into the pockets of the money masters who fund their political ambitions. Even before the Obama era began, they were betraying the goals of fiscal responsibility that maintained the world’s reliance on our currency, and the good faith and credit of the American people.
Paying lip-service to the pro-life cause, they work to undermine or drive out principled pro-life voices, constantly promoting the deadly falsehood that “moral issues” have no place in our politics (though the very idea of our constitutional self-government is based on moral premises.) They have also worked to establish the ‘common core” elitist approach to education, which Bush says should be “the new minimum” in classrooms. It trains workers to be thoughtless, passion enslaved automatons, ripe for government manipulation, and with little regard for their responsibilities as free citizens who must make critical choices as part of the sovereign body of the people.
Jeb Bush is the preferred candidate of the GOP quislings who have corrupted the good sense and moral integrity of the GOP. What sense does it make to go on pretending that GOP betrayals are failures of competence when they in fact represented a deeply rooted contempt for the ordinary Americans whose votes they exploit, but whose views they despise and betray.
Because it is deeply rooted in the elitist faction’s mentality, it’s folly for people to believe that this or that GOP “maverick” will somehow escape the rot. Conservatives who still irrationally pretend that “good” conservatives will reclaim control of the GOP are simply content to ignore the nature of the rot that presently eats away at that Party’s integrity. It reminds me of the consequences of Dutch elm disease at Cornell University during my first year there. Caretakers tried by various methods to staunch the spread of the disease, but eventually every one of the stately trees that beautified the University’s Arts and Sciences Quad had to be cut down, even some that still looked strong and healthy.
In like fashion the political rot in the GOP afflicts even the healthy seeming politicians still in bondage to its quisling leaders. So Ted Cruz openly decries the studied, deliberate and well planned treachery with which the quislings are contriving to fund Obama’s lawless amnesty policies. The good Senator valiantly struggles to come up with a way to use the “power of the purse” to call Obama to account for his anti-constitutional high crimes and misdemeanors.
But we are now witnessing a systematic, general assault against the Constitution. The Framers of the Constitution knew better than to believe that by itself the power of the purse would prevail against such an attack. There must be a broad political mobilization aimed at removing the assailants from government. So they included provisions for the impeachment and removal of the U.S. government’s highest officials in the Constitution, if and when sufficient Congressional majorities are empowered for that purpose at the ballot box.
They provided for frequent periodic elections, to be used to martial Congressional majorities that would represent the political will to defend the nation’s endangered liberty. In 2012 and again in 2014 the GOP refused, despite ample, palpable cause, to frame the elections in those terms. They refused to meet the political challenge of making Obama’s assault on the Constitution the decisive issue for the American people. They refused to raise the alarm because they work for, rather than against, the attacking forces.
It’s foolish to fight your enemy on ground that favors his strengths. It’s even more foolish to wage open battle against him while remaining in ranks ultimately subject to his manipulation and control. This is what conservatives are doing now who remain in bondage to the GOP. It’s a form of strategic insanity that has let America go over the brink toward its demise. That fate cannot be averted now except by people willing to break its fall by holding fast to our founding principles on every issue. They must offer to represent the majority whose constitutional sovereignty the elitist faction, is working to overthrow, Democrats and Republicans alike.
The GOP by being complicit in that aim, becomes the key to its success. If America is to survive, the quisling Party must be confronted and defeated by a new alternative. The American people have no more time or resources to waste on the elitist faction’s political sham. The only political representatives to trust are those leading the exodus of patriots determined to follow the pillar of God endowed right, which leads out of bondage to the elitist faction party sham, starting with bondage to the quislings’ GOP.
