One Does Not Simply ‘Move On’ From A Coup
Now that Robert Mueller’s report dropped a MOAB on the Russia Collusion narrative, some nice folk on the right are calling for ‘moving on’ and healing. Hard pass, thanks. When former Director of the CIA John Brennan, otherwise known as patient zero for the what can only be called a soft coup, now wishes to blame years of treasonous behavior on ‘bad intel’ and skate by – it’s definitely NOT time to move on. It’s time to make sure each and every co-conspirator is exposed and held accountable.
The problem is it is precisely the urge to ‘move on’ and ‘heal’ on the right that let the traitors believe they could seek to overturn an election, falsely impeach a duly elected president, and destroy anyone who got in the way. We must remember that this was an attempted coup, not a ‘hoax’ or a misunderstanding or ‘bad intel’. While we have heard the term ‘coup’ many times recently, and perhaps we’ve grown used to the idea. But this is something many of us never really imagined would be possible in the United States of America. And yet here we are.
Let me ask you a rhetorical question. Do you think we’ve heard the worst of what those behind this coup did? Considering that we already know from various testimony and documents that from the top of the Obama administration down to key players in the DOJ, State, FBI, and the media conspired to take down the Trump administration and destroy the lives of many around him (including his family), I’d say there’s a near 100 percent chance that we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg. The public is easily distracted and life comes at us fast these days. If we become complacent and breathe a sigh of relief that this Mueller fiasco is over, and if we make the fatal mistake of moving on then the perpetrators (traitors) will learn nothing, retain power, and almost certainly return stronger one day.
Creatures such as Pelosi, Schumer, and others burrowed in deep blue districts do not fear for their political viability. They simply seek to manage the narrative and the news cycle with lies.That is how someone like Granny Pantsuit could still be guzzling chardonnay in the woods instead of wiling away her remaining years in prison. Too few citizens are actually even aware of what has happened. Too many were duped by such transparent, stupid lies. The idea that Donald Trump, a billionaire capitalist who has spoken for decades of wanting to reform America, would be a willing stooge of Vladimir Putin is the kind of stuff that wouldn’t make it past the first draft in a Hollywood script.
There are folks on the right who don’t want to believe these things could be happening in America. Bless their hearts, they project their own inherent goodness on the left – and that is a potentially fatal flaw that the left has exploited for decades. Then there are the miscreants known as Never Trumpers, who provide aid and comfort for those who wish to impose these new rules on the rest of us, either out of rank ignorance or malice. Let’s never forget – Never Trumpers have been wrong about everything. And Obama promised a fundamental transformation. Thankfully, he and his chosen gin-soaked successor were too incompetent to fully see their vision into reality. But they got close. Too close. And they did real damage that we’ll be repairing for a long, long time.
Remember this: Had the Never Trump nitwits had their way, President Hillary would now have the courts with willing toadies who would legislate away the 1st and 2nd amendments – and with them the rest of our inconvenient rights. We know today that Fake News is indisputably the enemy of the people. Those who cry that Trump attacks the press can stop now. He’s been telling an inconvenient truth. We know that certain pundits on the right and almost everyone on the left actively gaslighted the American people in an effort to regain political power and undo the people’s choice in 2016. If that’s not the enemy of the people, I don’t know what is.
Every single one of these people needs to be held accountable in direct proportion to their actions. Some should be fired, some should be prosecuted. All should be forever stained by their willingness to usurp the will of the people and undermine our electoral process. We either have the rule of law and it applies to everyone, or we don’t.
