Biden About 1619, not 1776


President Joe Biden travelled to Philadelphia, to Independence Hall, the place where the nation’s founders signed the Declaration of Independence, to make his case for “The Continued Battle for the Soul of the Nation.”

Indeed, the president, in his remarks, said we are at an “inflection point” regarding where we stand and the path we’ll take for the future.

It is one of those rare moments when I agree with our president.

We are in a tug of war for our future.

Biden presented himself, and the political factions he represents, as those dedicated to saving and preserving the nation’s founding principles.

The threat, per Biden, is “Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans,” who “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

But the woke crowd that Biden represents doesn’t see the beginning of American history with the signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia in 1776. They see the beginning of American history with the arrival of slaves to the state of Virginia in 1619.

They see America as a place of oppression that needs to be fixed. Not as the first nation in the world to be founded, under God, on the principles of liberty.

Our president knows that if he conveyed imagery consistent with the values he really represents, the state of his party in upcoming elections would be even worse than it now is.

Biden’s performance in Philadelphia, as most appreciate, was politically contrived, because polling shows that former President Donald Trump is a polarizing figure. Democrats want to focus attention on him rather than on what they are about and what those who identify with MAGA really want.

It’s not about any one individual but about the struggle for the high ground.

The inflection point is whether America will be secular, socialist and woke or the free nation under God, as conceived by its founders.

Our president cannot even accurately read our own Declaration of Independence, which he described as “an idea unique among nations: that, in America, we’re all created equal.”

But this isn’t what it says. It says “all men are created equal” — not just in America.

It is not about politics. It is about a nation under God that embodies universal truths. And that the job of government is to preserve our God-given rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Biden left God out of the equation, and he left the role of government out of the equation, which, per the Declaration, is to secure individual liberty, not to exercise power to decide who has what.

The MAGAites that bother Biden so are a nationwide movement to recapture exactly those principles that the nation’s founders declared in Philadelphia where Biden stood and spoke.

It is no accident that Biden declares “MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution” but with one swipe of the presidential pen, he just wiped out somewhere between a half-trillion to a trillion dollars in student loan obligations that are now on the shoulders of American taxpayers.

Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley at George Washington University writes that the president’s constitutional authority to do this is dubious at best. “His administration,” writes Turley, “is rushing to get money out the door in October, a month before the midterm elections.”

Turley continues, “The Supreme Court has repeatedly found that President Biden has violated the Constitution and overreached in his use of unilateral executive authority. Biden has, arguably, the worst record of court losses in the first two years of any recent presidential administration.”

Trump captured the presidency in 2016 as a complete political outsider because a massive part of America was and is concerned about losing their country.

Half the nation’s economy is now being taken by government at federal, state and local level.

This is not the America of 1776. We are indeed struggling for our nation’s soul.

Well written article, it is true that (US) MEGA PEOPLE are really a movement about go back to the true and honest principles of America’s Constitution. The subversion away from the actual meaning of those laws within our constitution are what WE MEGA people are fighting against. The rule of law is to be applied to all equally. But the Democrats also known as the Socialist Democratic Party are tearing down the Constitution to satisfy a few and destroying a nation in the process. We MEGA PEOPLE are fighting to right our Nation which Donald Trump believes in with his whole heart. DJT showed American’s this, that is why the Democratic Party FEARS DONALD TRUMP so much. He has shown US what we can be not what a government demands us to be.

Oy! The statement, “Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans,” who “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” put me over the edge! It seems we were doing exceptionally well until Biden became president and things spiraled down to the lows we have now! That is a simple way of seeing who is who and what is being done to our country! Kinda like doing a DNA test on all these new genders to see what they really are!!! Simple, real, confirmed. Period.
He and his administration are afraid the MAGA REPUBLICans are only a threat to their communist government.

All completely true, but remember he has managed to spend his entire adult life being paid on the taxpayers’ dime. I won’t even mention his family side business for purposes of keeping this brief. Biden was exceptional in NOTHING. He was knowledgeable in NOTHING. He was a serial lair, a bully and a not too discrete racist who the media excused as “That’s Joe just being Joe.”, who managed to make a career of doing nothing of substance. Yet amazingly, he managed to be not only get elected, but repeatedly re-elected for nearly half a century. Yes, he has always been an empty suit. Yet what does that say about the voters who kept re-electing him to Congress over and over and then decided he would make a great President? Now that is what I would call really, really stupid.

From grade school we have been cautioned about labeling. And after living in Seattle these past years don’t tell me about violent gangs, organizations and groups of liberals marching down our streets breaking windows and robbing stores. We have liberal racist groups here who believe they have the right to evade arrest and engage the police in direct violence. Almost all of these racist events stemmed from resistance and directly attacking the officers. So, don’t preach to me about MAGA Republicans – and when did that label become evil? Is there anyone – Republican or Democrat, who doesn’t want to Make America Great Again? But that’s what happens with labeling, now Republicans are all considered evil, white supremist, racist and anti-democratic. Biden tried to back up after he said that- but he’s well aware once he said it there was no backing out of it, he can’t take it back. He said it because that’s what a lot of Democrats are thinking, he said to help get votes. Next, he’ll be after those of us who support the motto, “In God We Trust” and fly the flag at our homes. What was that he said in his inauguration speech about bring up together….

The author of this article is dead on. It is the MAGA Republicans who are striving to save the soul of this nation and not the God hating, freedom hating Communist leaning Democrat Party!

Biden says what is on the teleprompter. He literally can’t remember what he said the day after. He is merely a useful puppet to be paraded out periodically to read speeches and sign papers put in front of him. Then his handlers take him to his beach house in Deleware to rest up and give him boosters of whatever drug cocktail he is on to treat his dementia. That’s about it. Most people around the world understand that Biden is not mentally fit for the job or actually running the country on a day-to-day basis. Which is why our enemies no longer fear us and our allies no longer trust us to have their backs should push come to shove.

The issue isn’t really Biden. He was like this before the election in 2019 and 2020. His dementia has just progressed as one would expect with the anyone suffering from the disease. Biden is just an expedient prop the left uses. Nothing more, nothing less. The real issue is the American people who have allowed this farce to continue with such tragic results. Did anyone ever think last week’s speech would ever be given by any POTUS in our life time? I seriously doubt it. Yet it is symbolic of how far we have declined as a nation, that it occurred at all.

I will agree with the author that this is NOT the nation of 1776. That was a nation of freedom fighters, who stood up the most powerful nation on earth at the time and ultimately won. Today we are mostly a nation comprised mostly of sheep being willing to be led to the slaughter by a minority of Socialists having a grand old time as they dismantle the republic one brick after another. Everything else is simply noise.

Biden is full of what comes out of the South end of a North running bull!!! The DemocRat Party is harking “Look out Commies, here we go!” All I can say, is “God Bless America, Land that I love!” and hope that the citizens of this great Nation realize what is happening to this Nation’s governance … and do something about it.

I agree with you that it is The People who must do what is necessary to secure their freedom. But only an informed people will have the knowledge they require to take action. Leftist news will do everything they can to ensure people are kept in the dark. Truth prevails when brave souls dare to shout it from the rooftops in the face of danger from evil doer’s.
