Party First –  Biden and Mills

Not a good look. When loyalty to party replaces loyalty to nation and truth, the government loses its legitimacy. This goes back to our Declaration. Lying for “the party” betrays The People. From Maine to DC, we are seeing this, “party first.”

Examples are legion. Take the obvious. President Joe Biden is emblematic of a political mindset that justifies habitual untruth, self-interest, and abuse of public trust for gain. He even seems to believe his own lies (e.g. inherited high inflation, Afghanistan a success, border secure, crime down, opponents enemies).

We are, however, seeing something new. While such people always existed, those who forgive themselves lie to keep power seem to be spreading. Democrats from Maine to DC are elevating party over truth, pushing lies to hold onto power.

Apparently, these leaders believe they can get away with it or must try. They conclude we are stupid, gullible, lazy, or can be made fearful enough to accept lies.

Presently, we swim in a pool of untruth, now four years of hearing Joe Biden is sharp, with only a speaking impediment, and no mental acuity issues. We all see the truth.

Suddenly, after years of Democrat leaders knowing the opposite but saying he is “just fine,” we get that mortar-in-the-living-room debate, 90 minutes of Biden more dazed than a deer in headlights, showcasing his mental handicap without prompter, cue cards, or elbow guides. He seemed unaware of his vacuousness.

To many, it was just sad. To others, the only surprise was that drugs, sleep, practice, nerves, endorphins, and adrenaline could not hide the naked nothingness.

For me, it sent a chill. China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and the world – saw this debacle, glazed eyes, listless, naked nothingness. When opportunists see their chance, they take it. Adversaries are snakes in the grass, waiting for such times.

All this would be less important if Biden’s display of incoherence produced unity, a national consensus that truth, competency, and security demand action. It did not.

For a moment the hovering lie, profound untruth about Biden’s condition, seemed over. What we saw was despondently, obviously, coyly admitted. He was done.  

Then snap, and the box shut. The big lie was pushed harder, replacement talk ridiculed, big cover-up once again the Democrat gameplan, strategy. Amazing.

Living in Maine, what drove home how “We The People” are sidelined by those who covet power, was our governor. Tone deaf, Maine’s shameless Democrat governor went all in for “the party,” truth and the interest of Mainers notwithstanding. Mimicked by state legislators, she thinks the state is dumb.

This Democrat governor, Janet Mills, first claimed to have spoken “with President Biden about Americans’ concerns …in the Oval Office.” Actually, that opener was an untruth.  She spoke via a virtual call, not in the Oval Office.

She then gushed that Biden is “an excellent leader of our country,” and is “in it to win.” While “some Maine people” had “expressed concerns,” he could “reassure the voters of Maine, just like he reassured us.” She doubled down, party over the truth.

Knowing Biden is patently unfit to lead, she pushes the charade. “I look forward to the President demonstrating … the same heart, determination, and vigor that he brought to our conversation …” Vigor?

She called Biden’s “vigor,” a quality “I have come to know well in my time with him over the years.” In her half dozen encounters on an airport tarmac, arrived at haltingly?

She closed with a broadside about Republicans, saying they want chaos, and anarchy, not Biden’s “accomplishment” over “ineptitude.”  So, apparently, Trump’s record-setting growth and employment, low inflation, low interest, energy independence, safety and closed borders, a bar on illegals voting, and traditional definitions of boys, girls, and global stability – versus the exact opposite – makes Biden her guy?

Sad is that a state like Maine, built on truth, cooperation, hard work, and independent thought, has been captured by a one-party government, disserving the people. This modern Democrat is not the old sort. They now put party over nation.

Not coincidentally, Communist leader Nicolae Ceausescu once wrote: “We do not understand democracy in its bourgeois meaning… anarchy. We understand democracy as the active participation of the citizens in formulating and implementing the party’s policy.” Party over truth, over the nation, uber alles.

What can one say? For his ilk and modern Democrats, the party comes first. That is not a good look. But Biden is their guy. At least Ceausescu limited it to … citizens.

Hey RBC,

Just a little bit off topic, but have you ever spoken to AMAC management about the security validation of their web site? I mean in terms of the ease with which Democrat troll(s) using an ever-changing set of fictious names routinely just post whatever they want day in and day out? I have no problem with this person posting whatever they want. That is free speech after all, but AMAC should be able to at least enforce enough basic user ID verification to limit the troll(s) to use of a single name instead of pretending to be dozens of different people.

Mr. Charles’ excellent article is a rare pleasure to read, in it’s way of succinctly acknowledging so much that is so challenging to succinctly verbalize about this “man-child”, Joseph Biden, and his filthy-dishonest, “Democrat” party. I surely hope that this nation has experienced enough of Democrat rule to vote for actual leadership for quite a while. We’d better watch those polling places carefully, also.

Truth is not a left wing virtue and they continue to prove this every time they open their mouths. Power is all that matters. Screw the country. Screw the people. And unfortunately, a large percent of the population will never see this until we have an honest media that calls out these scum.

Thinking of this administration ,this presidency ,as an emergency situation then it requires attention as other emergencies — to quickly size up the situation, then proceed to do what is necessary to provide stability , secure what is in danger ( in this case things like Truth and Liberty ) . Important to vanquish fear and panic and it would be a good measure to include complaining along with the vanquishing of fear and panic. This article is very good RBC because you point out several ways the Democrats disregard for good character and contempt for proper procedures provides opportunities for Conservatives and other right thinking Americans to act on ,that is , to use as a base on which to build a proper, respectable system . The Declaration and the Bill of Rights have the materials needed needed to build a right, proper system And the spirit ,the ideas , to deal with this present threat to Truth and Liberty , and reverence for the will of God will develop as circumstances change for the better . The mindset needed to counter the assaults on the American ideals, the Principles that are at the foundation of this Constitutional Republic should include positive thoughts , an optimistic outlook at all times as that will encourage others to join in the noble effort to restore strength , and honor to the Nation. Well done Robert — this article helps to define and defend Truth .

i beg to differ; the demonRat party was NOT good back in the day when Lincoln was in the White House office. They were the party of the Planation and still are!! They wanted to keep slavery going. So, in my view the dems have always been against good for the nation and its ppl.

George Washington, in his farewell address, stated his biggest concern for our Maerican experiment was that there would be those to come along that would place party above the nation. Sadly his concern proves to be valid.
There is no common sense, no sense of right and wrong in the Demcrat party. They do a very complete job of getting people to believe that what they say is truth, a truth that is only made up. This relates to insanity – their belief and our lack of standing up for what is right.
We have left God out of our country and along with this any sense of A standard. We have diverse standards. But you see, when we add the “s” to the word standard the meaning of the word is negated.

Party over the protection of the USA tells me that you are not a true US citizen. Of the things that Biden has accomplished since his inauguration, name one that benefits the US citizen and Taxpayers.

(These leaders)….”conclude that we are stupid, gullible, lazy, or can be made fearful enough to accept lies”. YES, and that conviction is reinforced in every election cycle. When was the last time any of you voted against incumbents, even if they were “good people”, or spoke out / supported legislation for term limits?

This is a terrifying time, for both foreign and domestic concerns. I have hope that the ship of state can be turned around, but it’s a slow process and needs a willing and able captain. I read that the GOP is splintered, but I believe it is because they are more independent thinkers and don’t toe the party line. Shame on the democrats for doing so, it is not exemplary.
