I think the left is realizing it has a tiger by the tail. The people are
getting uppity.

Parents are assailing school boards over critical race theory and
transgender madness. So much so that the Biden Justice Department is
sending out the FBI to investigate whether, as the National School Boards
Association bombastically charges, some parents are guilty of “domestic
terrorism and hate crimes.”

Boy, it’s lucky for those BLM/Antifa rioters in 2020 that they refrained
from badmouthing teachers and school officials while torching the cities.
Their “peaceful protests” might have been investigated.

Meanwhile, former Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, the Clinton
bag man who is running again for his old job, stated, “I’m not going to
let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their
own decisions.” He added, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools
what they should teach.”

This stuff ticks off parents, and GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin is taking
full advantage. He is running ads accurately depicting Mr. McAuliffe as an
authoritarian, anti-parent elitist.

Republicans are looking to take back Virginia in November and Congress in
2022. Democrats in districts carried by former President Trump are as
nervous as a hockey goalie playing without a face mask.

President Biden’s poll numbers are plummeting. Vice President Kamala
Harris is apparently in the Federal Witness Protection Program, far from
the border. Americans see the stupid and brutal surrender in Afghanistan,
soaring gasoline prices, scary inflation, an insane transgender agenda
imposed on schools and the military, and a cataclysmic, deliberate erasure
of our southern border — and they don’t like it.

Given all this and more, the media/Big Tech axis no longer seems as
effective in scaring the “masses” into quiet obedience. So, our ruling
elites are doubling down on repressive measures.

Vaccine mandates are coming thick and fast at all levels, spurred by Mr.
Biden’s unconstitutional edict to private businesses. Pro-vaxxers cite a
1905 Supreme Court ruling upholding a smallpox vaccination mandate. But,
as noted by Washington Times columnist Judge Andrew Napolitano, Jacobson
v. Massachusetts involved only a state legislature, no other government
authority: “The issue was not whether a governor could issue a command,
call it a law and use the police to implement it,” as is happening today.

Democrats have been ignoring constitutional allocations of power. When
bureaucrats and judges unconstitutionally changed voting laws during the
2020 election in Pennsylvania and other bellwether states, the courts,
including the U.S. Supreme Court, yawned at the usurpations.

Over at the IRS, the Biden administration isn’t content with illegally
harassing conservative and tea party groups, as happened during the Obama
administration. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen wants banks to report
annual cash flows for ordinary account holders.

The Democrats say they are only going after deep-pocketed tax evaders, but
the IRS plans to review all accounts above a $600 balance or transactions
of $600 or more. So, when you pay your VISA bill or buy a major appliance
using your checking account, the IRS will be watching you as if you are a
criminal. Hey, let’s examine that donation to a Christian organization
designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “hate group.”

How is this intrusion into Americans’ finances remotely constitutional?
Well, it’s not. No more so than the Centers for Disease Control issuing an
order halting all evictions for non-payment of rent. So what if thousands
of small landlords see their life’s savings go up in smoke while their
tenants enjoy rent-free lodging?

To enforce the new mandates, Democrats have put $80 billion for the IRS
into their $3.5 trillion spendathon so the agency can hire more people to
pick Americans up by their heels and shake out the loose change along with
their wallets. They say they’re only going after “the rich.”

The so-called “masses” know better. Every day, I hear more people asking,
“What has happened to our country? And what can I do about it?” The answer
is to get involved at any level and make our voices heard. This appears to
be happening, and it’s why the elites are reaching for more Scotch or
Prozac.

Like the devil feverishly partying until his promised dunk in the lake of
fire, the elites hope to get away with their scheme before enough
Americans wake up to stop them. The difference here is that the devil
knows his eventual fate. Our would-be rulers think they’re immune to
divine justice.

It’s important for citizens in a self-governing republic to feel and act
like the deciding authority, not the government that serves them. On the
other hand, as we saw on Jan. 6, there is a difference between legitimate
dissent and thuggish behavior. A few idiots spoiled it for everyone
rallying at the Capitol that day.

Arizona Democrat U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema was followed into a restroom
this past week by two leftists mad at her for not caving on the massive
socialist spending bill. They kept videotaping even while she was in a
stall.

Asked about the incident, Mr. Biden said, “I don’t think they’re
appropriate tactics.” However, he added, “But it happens to everybody.”

Really? Everybody, or just those who irk leftwing mobs?

“The only people it doesn’t happen to are people who have Secret Service
standing around them,” Mr. Biden elaborated. “So, it’s part of the
process.”

I honestly did not know that illegally taping someone in a restroom is
just “part of the process,” but the president of the United States says it
is. He also says it’s perfectly fine for men who say they are women to use
the ladies’ room.

So, people, have fun and be sure to wash up before leaving. COVID, you
know.

Thank you for cleaning up the disaster of the 2008-2017 Obama / Biden
fiasco, President Trump.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp. Obama sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood
queer liberal democrat donors.

President Trump boosted the economy, reduced illegal invasions, appointed
dozens of judges and three SCOTUS justices.
