I can't recommend highly enough Daniel Greenfield's lengthy analysis of the current crisis in our constitutional order--brought on by the Deep State and Prog Left's reckless determination to seize the presidency (h/t Unknown):
Only an imminent 25th Amendment crisis and soldiers in the streets.
Exactly. That's why I refer to it as the Zhou Baiden regime. It is a regime, but Zhou is a figurehead, so it lacks the coherence to ultimately be effective on the world stage. And it may lost any semblance of coherence on the domestic stage as well. Hubris on the Left.
As I said, Greenfield's piece is lengthy, but it's also a compelling read that delves into the dynamics of the Left's seizure of the Executive Branch: Who's really in charge, what are the competing factions, etc.? Here's just a brief sample:
The Biden administration was built out of the wreckage of the Obama and Sanders campaigns, but staffers and appointees are only loyal to whoever can get them their next job. That’s not Obama and it’s not Biden who can’t name his own Secretary of Defense. It’s the think tanks and non-profits who built the Obama administration and built an even more radical Biden admin.
But non-profits and think tanks can’t actually run a government. Neither can Biden.
That’s why there isn’t a Biden administration. There’s an ongoing Netroots conference on government property. That’s why Jen Psaki can’t answer any real questions. The press secretary is supposed to speak for the White House, but there’s no one to speak for. Like a plane with no airport, she keeps circling back because there’s no administration position.
It’s also why the Biden administration keeps wading into culture wars. They’re comfortable territory and a good distraction from the fact that the lights are on, but nobody’s home. Picking a fight with Tucker Carlson or extending the D.C. military occupation buys a little more time for everyone to figure how an administration can function with no final decision maker at the top.
Forget Harry Truman’s ‘The Buck Stops Here’. There’s nowhere for the buck to stop.
The military occupation of Washington D.C. would be bad under any administration, but deploying the military indefinitely when there isn’t a functional chain of command is ominous. Power-sharing arrangements, like those of the Soviet Union’s Troikas, are the likeliest to break down and descend into violence. And then the military becomes the ultimate power play.
Combine a looming 25th Amendment, a military occupation of Washington D.C., and a leadership that, despite appearances is actually deeply at odds, and the situation is explosive.
Outwardly, if you watch the media, everything appears normal. But it usually does.
Read it all. As I pointed out yesterday--and I see that others are joining in today--the world is watching, even if the reality is being hidden from Americans by the Dems' proxy hoax news organizations.
Jan Jekielek has done a very nice interview with Kash Patel. Patel was Devin Nunes' lead investigator when Nunes was HPSCI chairman, and Patel later went on to hold top positions at the NSC, ODNI, and DoD. You won't really learn anything new from the interview, but what you get is a feel for what was going on during the Russia Hoax. Which was the prelude to our current crisis, as described by Greenfield. Listen between the lines. Just for starters, re FISA, you'll realize that Patel is describing the reaction that any professional investigator or prosecutor in the national security field would have had to the Carter Page FISA application. Everyone who was anyone knew, from the start, that it was a joke. A very bad joke on the Republic.
Last, but far from least, Don Surber goes there:
A few days ago I was talking about "setting the tone" for American society: Poison, Mutilate, and Sterilize. Surber is talking about the horrific story out of Wisconsin: Children’s Court Judge and Former President of Drag Queen Story Hour Foundation Arrested for Child Pornography. Look, occurrences like this don't just come out of nowhere, and anyone who thinks stuff like this isn't going on on a much broader scale is sadly deluded. Nobody likes to think about this stuff, but it's now integral to America. The biggest difference from the past, perhaps, is that it's now mainstream--check out what's going on at government libraries across the country. It took a long time, a lot of silence from religious leaders--or, alternatively, a lot of advocacy from religious leaders--to get us to this point. And a lot of acquiescence from We The People. Maybe this explains why our constitutional order is in such danger.
