Throughout the annals of American history, there have been rallying cries in the fight for liberty. We all remember the anger that came from the Boston Massacre. During the War of 1812, it was “Remember the River Raisin.” Probably the most famous rally cry was “Remember the Alamo!” Who will ever forget President Franklin Roosevelt’s resounding statement after the Imperial Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, “a date that shall live in infamy?” Ever since the horrific Islamic terrorist attack on 9-11-2001 we lived with the motto “Never Forget.” Well, thanks to the abhorrent behavior and mobocracy of the progressive, socialist left, there is a new rallying cry in America, “Remember Brett Kavanaugh.”
Today is that day, and there will be a full Senate confirmation vote on President Trump’s second SCOTUS nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It has come, finally, amidst what has been the most despicable, and disgusting display of über-partisanship ever seen, topping Robert Bork, and Clarence Thomas. The excuses, and delay tactics, continue by the Democrat [Socialist] party, as well as the thuggish intimidation tactics of the Alinsky leftists on Capitol Hill. All of this has done one incredible thing: galvanized a movement against the evil of the left.
As reported by Townhall:
“It started with anecdotes: Conservatives on social media buzzing with a level of urgency and passion unseen since at least the 2016 election. Right-leaning women spitting fire and venting frustration in lengthy email chains. Texts and direct messages flying at a dizzying pace. Readership at sites like ours building with each passing day, then spiking as open political warfare broke out. The Left’s all-out assault on the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh felt like a galvanizing event. Then a few dribs and drabs of quantifiable evidence started to trickle in.
It was, indeed, a Kavanaugh effect. And though we’re still weeks away from the election, the needle has officially moved. Will it last?
Reporters are hearing similar things from local Republican officials who are experiencing this wave of intensity among GOP leaners who have, at least for the moment, been roused from a satisfaction-induced slumber . . .”
The leftists want you to forget. They are hoping that this is just a passing moment. Today, Judge Brett Kavanaugh will probably be confirmed as the newest member of the US Supreme Court. However, the fight is not over. If conservatives do not hand the Democrat [Socialist] party a resounding defeat on November 6th, leftists will believe they got away with it. And, you can expect more of their aberrant antics, and deranged behaviors. As I have stated previously, the best revenge is electoral defeat for the progressive, socialist, left. We must show George Soros, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, and all the other financiers of the left that we will not be threatened, intimidated, or coerced into submission . . . regardless of how much money they spend.
Truly, this ideological civil war has been in its early stages in America. The election of President Trump moved it forward exponentially. Think about it: if Hillary Clinton had won in 2016, how much of the chicanery of the left would be unknown to us? Imagine how abjectly giddy the left, and their liberal, progressive, media hitmen would be? Imagine if this was a leftist president, Hillary Clinton, putting forth two more justices on the Supreme Court? We would be told that elections have consequences, and to shut up. It is time we see the left for who, and what, they are. They possess a level of demonic persuasion that has no bottom, and are willing to go to any length, use any means to attain power, and have ideological domination.
That is why these next election cycles are vital to the future of this Constitutional Republic. It started in 2016, and the leftists were enraged . . . and they are continuing to show it. It continues to this midterm election cycle, and the vitriolic, and vehement, reaction of the left has only worsened. We must turn back their advance once again in this next electoral engagement. This is not just about the US Senate, and US House of Representatives. It is about gubernatorial races, State Senate, State House races, along with local mayoral races, city council, and school board elections. This must be a rallying cry, and an ideological call to arms, to defeat the left at every level of governance in these United States of America.
We can ill afford to have some fleeting “sugar high” moment, and believe that once Justice Kavanaugh is seated on the Supreme Court, it is over. No, this is a battle, yes, a war, ideological in nature, and we must resoundingly win it at the ballot box. We must seek to first isolate progressive socialism in very identifiable areas in our nation. We must prevent its spreading out into our successful red states. We must, once isolated, then seek to reduce its influence, especially in our urban centers, and on our college, and university campuses. This is a strategic engagement. Why? Because the left has been strategic in commandeering the media, academia, and the courts. The left has leveraged culture in order to undermine our fundamental principles and values. What has happened to Judge Brett Kavanaugh must be an ideological Pearl Harbor moment for Constitutional Conservatives in the United States! And, we must respond in like manner, by committing ourselves to one purpose: the unconditional surrender of the left in America.
The left is hoping that within a week no one will remember Brett Kavanaugh. We cannot. He has become more than a man who was nominated to the highest court of the land. He represents the seminal conflagration for which this nation will be defined for future generations. This internal enemy we face is just as deadly as the external ones we have previously encountered. That which is, and always has been, at stake is the critical aspect of the American Republic: individual liberty.
We have seen the ugliness of the progressive, socialist left, and it cannot go unpunished. Their thirst is for power, the power to destroy the indomitable individual will, spirit, and sovereignty of the American citizen. They will use any means necessary, and as I stated previously, the rule of law has no meaning to those who prefer mob rule.
Remember Brett Kavanaugh in this and every subsequent election cycle in America.
Let me close by reminding you of the wise words of a great Statesman:
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
Roman Senator Marcus Tulius Cicero was describing the Democrat [Socialist] party all those many years ago.
