“He is so cool!”
One of the main reasons Joe Biden occupies the White House is that many voters considered him a nice guy.
“It would be fun to have a beer with the cool grandpa!” Or so they thought. Whatever your ideas, Biden would be a lot warmer than the evil Donald J. Trump.
So how are things going?
Instead of pleasant, Biden is angry, nasty, vindictive and increasingly totalitarian.
In short: Joe Biden is the Erich Honecker of America.
Like East Germany’s last dictator, Biden does not tolerate dissent. He vilified more than 74 millions of Americans who voted for Trump as “ultra-MAGA republicans”, “extremists” and “semi-fascists”. ”.
Even worse, comrade Joe Honecker has put the FBI – America’s Stasi, or secret police – to terrorize dissidents.
• The unprecedented attack on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, Florida property in a dispute over confidential or (by Trump) non-confidential documents should have been resolved in court, at worst, not at gunpoint. These “confidential” materials included Trump’s legal documents, tax documents, medical records, passports, other non-pertinent materials, as well as former First Lady Melania Trump’s clothing and even items from teenage son Barron’s bedroom.
•The FBI seized the cell phones of at least nine Trump allies, including former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark; House Freedom Committee Chair Scott Perry, R-Pa.; Nevada Republican Party chairman Michael McDonald; campaign strategist Mike Roman; electoral security expert Douglas Frank; and My Pillow founder Mike Lindell.
• The Honecker-Harris regime’s radical war on attorney-client privilege ignored this age-old legal norm. The FBI raided the offices and stole the phones of Trump’s legal advisers. These include John Eastman, Boris Epshteyn, Rudolph W. Giuliani and Victoria Toensing.
• These Americans are among the 35 to 62 Trump supporters who suffered FBI hacks, federal subpoenas or both. My Fox News colleague Tucker Carlson cited relevant subpoenas. They are investigating Americans who made “any allegation that the vice president and/or president of the Senate had the authority to reject or choose not to count presidential voters.”
No there is nothing illegal about claiming that the vice president exercises certain powers.
“Vice president Kamala Harris sets gasoline prices. If you’re paying too much, tell her to lower them.”
Is this statement absurd? Yes.
Is it illegal? No way!
Likewise, Americans are free to use the still debatable argument that the vice president influences which Electoral College votes can and cannot be accepted when a joint session of Congress certifies each presidential election.
This “electoral denial” is the Democratic Party’s favorite domestic activity.
No On the House floor, Democrats loudly raised doubts about the fairness of the 1990,
elections , 2004 and 2016. They argued that certain states’ electoral votes should be replaced by others.
Right or wrong, according to the US Constitution and the Electoral Count Act of 1887, Democrats had every right to ask whether Richard Nixon, George W. Bush and Trump won the White House fairly and honestly. The Democrats were within their rights even when they strangely claimed that Trump stole Alabama and Wyoming despite winning 62% and 68% of votes in these states.
Republicans, in and out of Congress , also had and have every legal right to oppose the elections of 2020 for all the reasons and in all the ways that Democrats have done in previous years.
When Democrats claim that Republicans cheated, they win applause for their political courage.
When Republicans claim that Democrats cheated, they are stopped by the FBI, confronted in public, deprived of their cell phones, subjected to home invasions, arrested in front of their families and friends and thrown in jail.
For Democrats and Republicans , this is called freedom of speech. It remains protected by the First Amendment. If Biden and his henchmen, Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray, don’t understand all of this, then they don’t have the elemental ability to do their job. In that case, they must resign immediately.
East Germany was kaput in 1990. Resurrect here would be dummkopf [idiota].
