Biden – Anti-Supreme Court Demagogue

Biden

A political demagogue – typically not bright – divides people by pushing the “prejudice” and “desire” buttons, advancing his divisive agenda by undermining or twisting established facts, logic, and institutions. This week Joe Biden, transparently deflecting, proved he is that guy.

Four examples of “Biden-the-Anti-Court Demagogue” jump off the page.

First, when the Supreme Court predictably ruled that a president is not allowed to initiate wild spending on his own – half a billion dollars in student loan forgiveness – without congressional action, pursuant to Article 1, Section 7 Clause 1 of the Constitution, Biden balked.  

More than balked, he hammered the Supreme Courts’ majority for a non-controversial, textual reading and application of the law to facts.  A man who barely got through law school, has not practiced in 60 years, and seems deft at violating federal law, declared to student borrowers the Court “got it wrong,” adding “this fight is not over.”

Like some federal sugar daddy, he declared he would find a way to give them all money – and then blamed Republicans, who have long argued constitutional language matters, for abiding the law.

Let’s get real. Tens of thousands of students, like my younger self, financed college and graduate school with loans. We borrowed, typically at a lower interest rate, to invest in ourselves, no expectation of being relieved of the obligation to repay what we borrowed. We knowingly assumed responsibility for debt.

Never mind this seminal fact. Biden-the-demagogue sees a chance to grab millions of votes in 2024, by promising he will battle “hypocritical” Republicans who subscribe to legal responsibility, loan repayment, and the Supreme Court. Accordingly, as if the High Court’s ruling matters little, he restarted his effort.

Second, earlier in the week, Biden addressed another anticipated High Court decision, one ending affirmative action, overt use of racial preferences to favor one race over another in college admissions. 

Notably, the idea of racial quotas was knocked out decades ago, and persistence of racial bias in admissions through affirmative action, admissions not on merit but favoring one race over another, was always viewed as temporary, even by affirmative action’s founders.

Martin Luther King himself imagined a day when his progeny would no longer be treated differently from others based on skin color, but fairly measured on merit, or the “content of their character.”

Never mind, Biden ripped the High Court again, stirring prejudice and indulging racial-based desires for special treatment, this time seeking to curry favor with black voters against a “not … normal” court, presumably because the High Court applied the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause to education. 

With textbook demagoguery, he slammed the High Court’s majority – which includes a brilliant black jurist – for their textual reading and overdue application of the 14th Amendment to racial preferences.

Ironically, universities directed to no longer discriminate against Asians and whites once used the same racial preferences or affirmative action to boost Protestants against Jews and Catholics, but never mind. Biden was all about trashing the Supreme Court for political advantage, and did so without hesitation.

Third, as if on cue, Biden then pushed the so-called Equality Act – one that would punish Christians for not complying with interests in the commercial and artistic space they oppose on religious grounds, specifically advancing sexual behaviors with which they disagree.

The High Court ruled owners of an artistic business cannot be compelled, against conscience or First Amendment “free exercise” rights, to advance what they oppose. Rather than assenting to middle ground, Biden bashed the Court.

So, after pandering to indebted students and minority populations interested in continuing preferential treatment on race (by definition, a zero sum game in college admissions), Biden then pandered to those who fall into sexual minorities, pitting them against those who, for religious reasons, disagree.

Finally, as if to underscore the surrealism of this divided moment in American history, the Biden administration had urged – in what seems an increasingly anti-religious era – that the Supreme Court offer only a limited review and minimal protection to employees whose religious convictions (i.e. not working on Sundays for Christians, or on religious holidays for all religions) conflicted with work.

The High Court took a different view, and unanimously protected a postal employee who was being required to work on Sundays, despite offering other accommodations. In effect, the First Amendment and Constitution trumped the non-religious or anti-religious interests of the government. Again, Biden lost – and on this one, just stayed silent. Notably, no defense of the employee’s rights got made.

Net-net, what does all this tell us – at a time when the Biden White House, political party, man and family are under intense scrutiny for anti-lawful acts, possibly federal bribery and RICO violations? 

In short: Biden-the-demagogue knowingly panders, plays to “prejudices” and “desires” of his political base, shamelessly mischaracterizing and undermining the Court, and judicial review.

Good news? All this does not matter. The rulings are sound, thoughtful, enduring. Americans are increasingly sick of hearing Biden-the-demagogue. And soon enough, Mr. Biden may have other fish to fry…managing his own entanglements with the law, as demagogues often must.

… to water down and dilute their transgressions, the Clintons, the Obamas and the Bidens corrupted the executive branch, most of our judiciary, half our legislature, the whole of America’s defense-intelligence agencies, our internal revenue service, the CDC, federal law enforcement, public education, and our mainstream media. Not one aspect of America’s federal government functions properly –

It’s nice to know after all these years of fighting the “ratio” system that, a white male will have the same opportunities of getting in college, getting a job, and getting promoted as everyone else. For years we have selected, promoted and placed applicates who “meet” requirements over the best qualified due to the ratio system. Regardless of race, color, ethnic origin, gender or religion we need to be selecting the best qualified person, pay our debts and stop the violence in our neighborhoods. It’s time to make America great again.

Let’s get realistic. There is an ongoing coup to destroy our Constitution, Bill of Rights, Rule of Law, our Sovereignty, and our Freedoms. This will be replaced with the “New World Order” whereby each of us will become slaves to the elite. As Patriots the following is our duty:

First, recognize that the United States is not a functioning constitutional republic, but a government being deliberately transformed into a one-party totalitarian state.

The federal government, as an institution, is hopelessly corrupt and, although we have elections, we do not have a representative government. It cannot be reformed. It can only be ripped out and replaced.

Do not expect any top-down solutions for America’s problems to miraculously emerge from Washington D.C. The U.S. government has seceded from the people. Most members of Congress act more like foreign occupiers than executors of the views and needs of their constituents.

Angelo Codevilla noted that the United States already has a bona fide ruling class, which transcends government, a political aristocracy that sees itself as distinct from the rest of society and as the only element that may act on its behalf. The ruling class considers those who resist it as having no moral or intellectual right, and, now, any civil right as well.

Republican Party leaders neither contest that view nor vilify their Democrat counterparts because they do not want to challenge the ruling class, they want to be part of it.

The Republican leadership has solidified its choice to no longer represent what had been its constituency, but to adopt the identity of junior partners in the ruling class. By repeatedly passing bills that contradict the views of its voters, the Republican Party has made political orphans of tens of millions of Americans.

The only remaining course of action for patriotic American, who want to restore our constitutional republic, is a bottom-up political insurgency based on the Constitution and the Founding documents.

Foremost among them are the Second and Tenth Amendments.

The Second Amendment, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,” is now the only obstacle standing between freedom and the absolute tyranny the federal government now wishes to impose.

Buy firearms and lots of ammunition.

Identify constitutional sheriffs or law enforcement officers in your community and coordinate with them to form a “well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State.” That is, a militia capable of being deputized to fight against, not just criminality, but incursions by a tyrannical government.

Above all others, preserving the Second Amendment is the hill to die on.

The Second Amendment is not just the basis for the right of self-defense, but it is also the defense against tyranny and the guarantor of all other rights as the Founding Fathers recognized.

“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”

– Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th-century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

“To disarm the people…[i]s the most effective way to enslave them.”

– George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788.

The Tenth Amendment states:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Refuse to comply with and actively resist unlawful and unconstitutional edicts from the federal government.

Remove and replace any local official acting contrary to the interests of the people. Take control of the local government, prosecutors, and school boards. Coordinate your activities with other similarly-acting communities in your region. Create Democrat Party- and Establishment Republican-free zones.

Give Democrats a taste of their own medicine. As much as local law will permit, arrest and prosecute or organize civil lawsuits against individuals or organizations engaged in the destruction of our constitutional republic.

Identify by name, address and photograph all illegal aliens in your community, which will facilitate their later deportation. Challenge all local employers who hire illegal aliens and any non-governmental organization facilitating the transport or support of illegal aliens in your community. Launch lawsuits when appropriate.

Strictly enforce Equal Opportunity. Expose and eliminate programs promoting grooming and sexualization of children, Critical Race Theory, and all similar forms of anti-American indoctrination.

Immediately, state out loud and often that Joe Biden is not a legitimate President of the United States, but a usurper, who was installed in office through an election stolen by organized voter fraud.Until the November 3, 2020 election is satisfactorily addressed, there can be no election integrity and the United States will remain a banana, not a constitutional republic.

Admittedly, my list of actions by patriotic Americans to restore our constitutional republic is not exhaustive. Add your own ideas in the comments section.

In any case, the time for action is now. The collective effect of even the smallest acts of non-compliance can have an impact.

The Supreme Court (no matter how it is configured), is established by the Constitution of the United States in several separate Articles and Sections, the main one being Article 3. Therefore this (so called) President isn’t just an “Anti-Supreme Court Demagogue”: he, simply, is an Anti-Constitution Demagogue; along with all those who prop him up and carry out his dictates.

I suspect that Biden and the DEMOCRATs keep coming up with controversial inititives as a way of diverting attention away from his decades of influence pedling . Biden and the DEMOCRATs dropped the “trans” bomb on us . They droped the impeachment bombs on us . They dropped the Russia Rujssia Russia hoaxes on us . They INVENT new anti social groups as they go . So, as the Congress gets closer and closer to his apparent influence pedling , he and the DEMOCRATs will just continue INVENTING with one outrage after another . .

The Democrats are positivists. When the GOP figures out that is a fact, it will be better able to combat them. Positivists do not believe in ANY supreme power, which explains why they can freely ignore the Constitution and “Catholic” Democrats can promote abortion.

It looks like the Supreme Court made right, reasonable, realistic decisions on the issues listed in the article. It is good to know that there are some people in Washington District of Columbia who are thinking right. It brings hope to those of us who believe in what the United States of America stands for and appreciate the need for good sense and ethics functioning at that level . Good article, Robert.

Joe Biden is obviously not in control of the presidency or his puppet administration. It is Progressives who are in control, highly influenced by Socialist billionaires and Communist Chinese who have invested heavily in Biden and his family. We must reduce the size of government by getting government out of our social lives and businesses.

Why ALWAYS explains EVERYTHING when it comes to liberals.
The liberal reaction to an unfavorable ruing by the Court will always be the same. Since liberals always think they are right, anyone who disagrees with them is always going to be wrong. Liberals are undisciplined spoiled rotten children who think they should always always get their way.

Folks who vote for democrats should think long and hard at the next election. Right now the only firewall between US citizens freedoms and a totalitarian government (if you don’t know what that is then look it up) is the supreme court. When the democarts take over the supreme court then the democrats will have comnplete control over the country. There will be no other view points allowed. Period. The democrat in the white house will sign whatever he wishes into law. One man will decide everything that he thinks is best for the whole country. The people will have no voice to oppose him.

Biden uses old tried and true tactics: “Communism has something to sell to everybody. And, following this principle, it is the function of mass agitation to exploit all the grievances, hopes, aspirations, prejudices, fears, and ideals of all the special groups that make up our society, social, religious, economic, racial, political. Stir them up. Set one against the other. Divide and conquer. That’s the way to soften up a democracy.” —J. Edgar Hoover, Masters of Deceit, The story of communism in America and how to fight it,1958

I LOVE Mr. Charles comments b/c he nails my beliefs thoroughly! The Damocrats are determined to send the USA right down the tubes and if we, the People, don’t stand up and fight we will be socialists soon.
May God continue to bless this country as He has done throughout our existence. Please PRAY for our country and that our politicians will turn from their wickedness.
Get out and VOTE when you have the opportunity to do so!

Asside from galloping senility, you have to admit Joey learned extremely well from his last boss. He knows it is better to govern by fiat and let yourself be taken to court than to obey the law in the first place. That way you at least stand a chance of winning some of the time. What scares me is when someone tells him how to pack the court with liberals. We’ve got several in there now who lied taking their oath of office when they swore to defend the constitution.

The SUPREME Court is the final decider. The major problem is that in this era at least the more times something is said the more it is accepted as truth. Biden often makes a statement and repeats it. Soon he may be saying the same thing 3 times. I hope that many people are so tired of what he says that they can’t even pay attention.

“Martin Luther King himself imagined a day when his progeny would no longer be treated differently from others based on skin color, but fairly measured on merit, or the ‘content of their character.’” How many hundreds of millions of Americans has King deceived with his demagoguery and hypocrisy? Never did he practice judging people by character. Never did he judge each individual Southerner by his character. He just lumped them together as vile, evil, despicable, degraded degenerates. Never once did he make any effort to discover my parents’, grandparents’, aunts’, and uncles’ individual character. He just lumped them in with all other Southerners. Thus, he judged by ethnicity and not by character.
