Outpouring of vicious hate and determination to crush all opposition

It Was The Supreme Court’s Liberals Who Established Protests Are Not ‘Sedition’. Hadley Arkes – “The ever-praised ‘demonstration’ has always contained in its inner logic the premise—and the threat—that force rules.”

Adam Kinzinger Shouldn’t Be Proud His Family Disowned Him, He Should Be Ashamed. John Daniel Davidson – “Politics sometimes does strange and sad things to people, especially to elected officials in Washington. Sometimes it makes them forget who they are—or become someone else entirely.” … “According to Kinzinger’s warped political principles, throwing your family under the bus to get plaudits from the corporate press is somehow patriotic.”

“Someone—maybe one of his family members—should pull Kinzinger aside and explain to him that the devil’s ultimate and oldest trick is the one from the Garden, when he sowed doubt about whether God really meant what he had clearly said. That trick is rampant in American culture and politics today. (That’s how, for example, America gets a “Catholic” president who unabashedly champions things the Catholic Church has always taught are moral evils, like abortion. God didn’t really mean what he said, you see…)

politicians like Kinzinger and Cheney have little interest in Trump’s sort of GOP. They prefer platitudes about hope and opportunity, content to plead with an ascendant cultural left that hates them and their faith, that will grind them to dust—that is, right after giving them a five-minute spot with Chuck Todd to denigrate their own family.

Why Trump Should Press His Case On Voter Fraud. David Marcus – “Donald Trump can win his Senate trial on the merits, not just a technicality, and he should.” The problem is that the merits of the case have had no relevance in this particular proceeding.

“Too many Republicans are being shamed now into not making a very important argument about election security. It would be the most Trump thing in the world to show up at the Senate and fight the fight they refuse to. And again, Trump’s bar would be low. We have been assured there was no fraud, no major problems in mail-in voting. Just a handful of examples would put the lie to that.

Insider Account Shows How Trump’s Legal Team Bungled Legal Challenges to Voter Fraud. Shane Trejo – “Giuliani dropped the ball.” … “This is why so many Republicans want the issue of election fraud to disappear. The incompetence and sabotage that have occurred within the GOP is nothing short of astounding, and even Trump’s loyal supporters (and Trump himself) are forced to bear the burden of failing so abysmally to challenge such obvious fraud.”

Leftists are trying to destroy Trump’s new attorneys. Andrea Widburg – “Trump is entitled to be represented by the attorney of his choice — a right inherent in every American called upon to face a judicial body in America. The Democrat party, however, no longer recognizes that right for Trump or anyone associated with him.”

“For his part, Trump, like all defendants who know themselves to be innocent, wants to make his case in court. Getting dismissed on procedural grounds leaves a cloud over his head. He understands that this is the last chance to get facts about election fraud before the American people. The Democrats are memory-holing the facts and saying any challenge to the election is seditious. It’s now or never.

Do you know how you can tell that they’re good at what they do and have the potential to be effective? Democrats have gone after them, trying to destroy them personally and professionally in a way never seen in America.

Trump Lawyer: Impeachment Is “Political Weaponization” Of A Constitutional Process [ via zerohedge]. Janita Kan via The Epoch Times – “This is a very, very dangerous road to take with respect to the First Amendment, putting at risk any passionate political speaker,” Schoen said.

Systemic Contingencies – They All Knew – Lessons From Spygate About Severity of DC Corruption. Sundance – “it becomes an exercise in intellectual honesty to see the bigger picture.” … “some were active participants, and some -out of fear- just sat silent to the cover-up operation. That reality is why the FISA court did not react to Kevin Clinesmith aggressively. Everyone knew…”

The Real Constitutional Crisis is Upon Us. John Green – “I submit that threats to our Constitution have been approaching for generations. Either through dereliction or malicious intent (willful violation of their oaths), the Supreme Court justices have failed to interdict the approaching threats when it would have been relatively easy. Now we’ve reached a point where the Constitution is becoming irrelevant, and it’s not clear that the Supreme Court has any interest in defending it.”

The ‘After Trump’ Era Begins. Victor Davis Hanson – “Expect the media and government to suddenly resent any mention of pushback against a sitting president.”

A Statement from the Heart of Passivity. Antony Carr – “As sovereign individuals we have agency, but with agency comes personal responsibility. By adopting a group approach, personal responsibility can be avoided and politically correct faux virtue-signalling used to cover the real aim – the pursuit of power.” … “Progress requires bad practices to be replaced by good, not justified as part of a culture frozen in aspic.”

A Tsunami Of Hate [via Hinderaker at Powerline]. “Our friend David Horowitz makes the case that our present political crisis is not the result of polarized views on policy, but rather is caused by the Left’s outpouring of vicious hate and determination to crush all opposition.”

Civic Virtues as Moral Facts. Daniel J. Mahoney – “Recovering the other half of the American Founding.”

Why We Must Unmask. Jason Fertig – “A society that stays in and muzzles up until the government says it’s safe to come out is not as free as we thought it was. Smiles matter.” … “The narrative needs to change or we will start to see more fascism akin to the Parler debacle because those in power think that there will be very little civil disobedience.”
