Winning the New Civil War (OPINION)

An excellent opinion piece…

Published

on

The American Civil War of 1861-65 is considered the first “modern” war. Both sides used advances in communications and military technology that resulted in 600,000 deaths. Now, more than 150 years later, Americans are engaged in a new civil war.

This time it is not a war of armies and weapons and regional animosity—it is a war of visions. Liberals and conservatives each have a different vision for the future of the nation. Conservatives believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. The vision of “progressive” liberals is an authoritarian socialist nation run by unaccountable bureaucrats—an approximation of Venezuela, somewhere between Stalin’s Soviet Union and Orwell’s 1984. The conflict over these value systems has escalated into the new civil war.

We have many strong indications that this is a hot war: the depredations of Antifa, a contemporary incarnation of Nazi brown shirts; Maxine Waters urging liberals to confront Trump supporters; mobs threatening the homes of prominent conservatives; the attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh; and the attempted impeachment of President Trump by partisan Democrats in the House.

The war began when Barack Obama was elected president. After promising just the opposite, the Obama presidency played into the leftist strategy of “divide and conquer.” The fraud known as identity politics was a child of the Obama years. Using their perverted version of “diversity,” the Democratic Party—under the leadership of Obama—exploited discontented elements in American society to foment division and hatred. Obama’s comments in case after case—lies and distortions—stoked the fires of racial discord. After eight years of Obama, relations between conservatives and liberals were worse than ever and the country was plunged into darkness.

This new civil war is much more intimate than the old one. Instead of North pitted against South, we have friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor, brother against sister, wife against husband. It may be happening on your street or even in your bedroom. Try as you may, you cannot escape its tentacles. Author Mark Levin calls this phenomenon the “balkanization” of society. The Left’s objective, Levin says, is to “collapse the existing society” by dividing the people against themselves. It appears to be succeeding.

The most alarming danger posed by the new civil war is the possibility that the United States could evolve into a totalitarian state within a few short years. Our system of government is strong because of “checks and balances.” One such check is the existence of multiple political parties. Now try this on for size: A rogue political party seeks a take-over of the federal government by forcing the other party out, ending checks and balances. That happens in totalitarian states, you say, not in the good old US of A? Well think again, because that is exactly what the Democrats have been up to since Trump won the election in 2016.

If the current crop of Democratic Socialists can win back both houses of Congress and the presidency, their stated aim will be the imposition of socialism and the eradication of the two-party system. The Democrats have figured out that they can rule unchallenged by opening the border to millions of “refugees” who are expected to vote for Democratic candidates. “If we can’t get enough Americans to vote Democratic, we will have to import them.” Attempts to invalidate Trump’s election are in service of this objective.

If you think I am simply an alarmist, remember that the Democrats have already succeeded in making the Republican Party irrelevant in California, New York, and Illinois. In those jurisdictions, Republican voters have effectively been disenfranchised. The Democrats are working overtime to do the same thing in Texas, Virginia, New Jersey, and other key states. If they had captured Texas in 2016, Hillary would be president—that’s how close it is.

Keeping Trump in the Oval Office and winning back the House should be the primary objectives of anyone who cherishes individual rights over big government. The alternative is an authoritarian socialist nation run by an elite cadre of Democrats fronting for unaccountable government bureaucrats—the Deep State. Washington bureaucrats will be the ultimate winners if the civil war is lost. The antidote to a Deep State victory is Donald Trump. He is their Kryptonite and they know it. The Mueller investigation didn’t work so now the Left is pushing impeachment to prevent a Trump landslide in 2020. My prediction: Trump will win in spite of all their efforts to defeat him. The war will be won by the Right at least until 2024.

Here’s a bit of news you 100% did not expect to read on a Sunday morning, especially considering the state of American politics these days. But it happened. It actually happened. A New Jersey Democrat is becoming a Republican. After decades of living on planet earth, Rep. Jeff Van Drew finally decided it was time to grow up and become an adult. Good for him and better for America! How must Nancy Pelosi feel, at this moment? She just lost yet another vote when it comes to impeaching President Trump. Do you feel bad for her? Don’t answer that. We already know the answer. Check this out, via Daily Wire: New Jersey Democratic Congressman Jeff Van Drew, who has strongly opposed the Democrats’ impeachment efforts, is leaving the Democratic Party and becoming a member of the Republican Party after meeting with President Donald Trump. […] Van Drew reportedly met “at length” with Trump on Friday and his decision to switch parties is supposed to be officially announced in the near future, a top GOP source told Politico. https://twitter.com/MZanona/status/1205946597974118400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205949015734575104&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1205949015734575104?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205949015734575104&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss Reactions: The stunning move comes ahead of a historic vote on impeachment, to which Van Drew is strongly opposed.

Watch: Democrat Rep. Admits Impeachment Vote Delayed to Maximize TV Exposure

How much attention do they need, at this point?

If the mainstream media was honest with the American people, this would be a story they’d report above all else, at the moment. Not only do Democrats want President Trump out of office because they hate him – not because he broke any laws – but they want as much TV time as possible to let the politically uninformed know they are attempting to kick POTUS out, therefore making it seem as if they are doing a good job. Here’s what’s up, via The Blaze: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) enraged Republicans on the committee by suddenly delaying a vote on impeachment articles that was supposed to occur Thursday night, and one Democrat on the committee has admitted the move was for attention. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) told CNN on Friday that instead of having the vote late Thursday night when no one was paying attention, the committee wanted to maximize the number of potential viewers by pushing it until Friday morning. The Thursday night hearing lasted nearly until midnight. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RX2gUexYgEE&feature=emb_logo California Democrat Nancy Pelosi knows she’s got jack. All Democrats know they have nothing against President Trump. Unfortunately, that won’t stop them from acting like children and attempting to impeach. The Speaker’s response to liberal CNN host Jake Tapper’s questions about the process shows she’s vapid on the issue. And considering the issue at hand, that’s kind of a big deal. The fact that Dems have taken the impeachment process as far as they have without any proof of presidential wrongdoing whatsoever speaks volumes about character. But they don’t care. WATCH: You can’t make this up. Nancy Pelosi scolds CNN’s @JakeTapper for asking about impeachment on the day she asks for articles of impeachment to be drafted against @realDonaldTrump. #StopTheMadness https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1202784451559862272?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202784451559862272&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fpelosi-scolds-cnn-for-asking-her-about-impeachment-on-day-she-declared-impeachment If there is one person…
