connections with reality

A Eulogy to the Rule of Law: The Political Prosecution of President Trump. Eric Schmitt – “Leftists in the United States are increasingly weaponizing investigations to persecute and prosecute their opponents for politics and policy differences. The left’s conduct is similar to the conduct you find in a banana republic where the authoritarian state punishes its political enemies with criminal prosecutions in search of crimes.”

“For five years, with no evidence, and failure after failure, the Left has been in search of crime to get President Trump and his family. Rather than debating policy differences like taxes, energy prices, immigration, rising violent crime, and more, the Left is focused on indictments and even incarceration for those who dare not conform to their liberal views. We must have the courage to call out this insanity before it becomes normalized. We must fight to save this Republic and the rule of law. If we don’t, or if we choose to remain silent, we will become just another junk banana republic slip-sliding down that Shining City on a Hill.

The Overblown Oathkeepers Indictment. Stu Cvrk – “Are the DoJ and FBI grasping at straws in going after Oathkeepers for an alleged conspiracy to carry out an “armed insurrection” by invading Capitol Hill on 6 January? Is the incarceration of hundreds of people on flimsy charges in the aftermath of the riot merely political theater, or is it something far worse? How much longer will those people be held in pre-trial confinement? Will we ever see the thousands of hours of video taken inside the Capitol building on 6 January that has been withheld?”

Chicago shows the existential danger behind the Democrats’ policies. Andrea Widburg – “A brutal, race-based execution on a major Chicago street highlights where Democrat policies are taking us. Their obsessive focus on race, coupled with their attacks on moral law, criminal justice, and social norms, will turn all of America into Chicago unless we refuse to go along with a program that affects every facet of American life, from the federal government down to the smallest school board.”

“What we are seeing here is a return to stone-age savagery. It is a reminder that human beings have only the thinnest veneer of civilization. The Enlightenment pulled us away from the brutal cruelty that was the norm for pre-modern man. However, as Nazi Germany shows, embracing tribal loyalties and removing the breaks on civilized behavior can, in just a few years, transform the world’s most advanced and civilized society into a collection of brutal, bloodthirsty, sadistic animals.

It’s not about skin color because the Nazis were White and the people in that video are Black. Instead, it’s about taking away the brakes.

What are those brakes? A divine moral code (i.e., religion), force (law enforcement and criminal justice), and social norms. Beginning in the 1960s and with accelerating force that went into overdrive in 2020, Democrats have removed each of those brakes.

Lastly, in an act of cynical racism, Democrats destroyed the social norms that bind Americans together and lead to a modicum of respect among people.

The Truth: Biden is Supposed to DENY HIMSELF Communion. Selwyn Duke – “the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is drafting a “teaching document” about the meaning of the sacrament — some Democrats are tacitly indicating that they consider church attendance a ploy and Communion a prop. They’re signaling that they have no respect for the Church — even as they imply that receiving Communion from it is an imperative.” … “these Democrats’ position is so irrational that no one taking his faith seriously could embrace it.”

“Unlike the Poles and the woman I mentioned earlier, these left-wing politicians don’t even have the respect to abide by the rules of an institution to which they belong voluntarily. So the truth is that contrary to billing, Biden isn’t just not a devout Catholic — he’s not even a good non-devout Catholic.

Religion is not a process or a formula. The teachings of a church attempt to connect the behavior of its members with its ideology. When that connection is shattered, the organization becomes broken.
