Amid the tumultuous political climate the United States finds itself in, due largely to Democrats trying to steal the election and subsequently imposing their unconstitutional agenda on the rest of us, there are many things to be thankful for, to be sure, namely family, faith and our great nation which allows us freedoms and liberties, well for now anyway. However, there are plenty of things not to be thankful for. Below are just some of them.
The US Supreme Court, well, mostly just Chief Justice John Roberts and the liberal justices who seem to feel that their duty on the highest court in the land is to write law instead of interpret it and properly rule on issues that affect American citizens. For example, in 2012, after the passing of the disastrous and improperly named “Affordable Care Act,” also known as Obamacare, Republican lawmakers took it to the Supreme Court to challenge the constitutionality of the individual mandate falling under the Commerce Clause. The liberal justices and fake conservative Chief Justice Roberts, determined Obamacare to be constitutional due to the individual mandate being a tax, not a penalty. This should have negated the whole thing since the argument of the case was that the individual mandate was a penalty. Since it was ruled that it was a tax, it should have been dismissed.
Tyrannical governors. Certain governors abuse their responsibility as state leaders by dictating how the citizens of their respective states will act. From mandating wearing masks to setting curfews to shutting down schools to any number of things they want, these governors overstep the boundaries of morality and civil rights. In California, Governor Gavin Newsom has enacted not guidelines but rules for celebrating Thanksgiving. These include having no more than six guests who must social distance and wear masks at all times. He did make a provision, however, in that people are allowed to pull their masks down to take bites of food, but promptly cover their mouths while chewing. Governor Andrew Cuomo has also set strict rules for celebrating the holiday season, but thankfully the US Supreme Court ruled against his stupid mandates.
Election Fraud. This election season has been a disaster for many reasons. Just when we all thought President Trump was on his way toward being re-elected, Democrat fraudsters pulled a fast one. Attempts at election fraud were blatantly obvious in Democratic-controlled districts in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and others. Moreover, vote-counting stopped in several states on election eve but the next morning Biden somehow was ahead in votes, which is what needed to happen in order to manufacture votes for the former vice-president. Also, mail-in voting proved to be fraudulent, as anyone, whether a legal citizen or not, could simply mail in a ballot without a way it could be verified. It just gets accepted. Democrats even went to court months in advance to change the rules of the election process in order to make it easier for Democrats to cheat and steal the election. The integrity of the election has been undermined.
The dishonest and biased media. It’s no secret the media is on the side of Democrats. They are the publicity firm of the DNC. They’ve mastered the technique of getting away with lying, indoctrinating and omitting facts and stories. It’s utterly disgraceful that the institution of journalism, which was once somewhat transparent, is ominously shady. Most media outlets including CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the AP, the New York Times, the Washington Post and others are in the tank for whatever Democrat is running against a Republican. Even Fox News now has its assortment of news anchors and correspondents that lean left, although most of its commentators like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham are solidly on the right. What the mainstream media do is tell a story that is so devoid of reality, omitting facts and keeping people from the truth. And they hide under a shroud of journalistic privilege. It’s malfeasance and high time to change the laws protecting these media crooks.
Certain Social Media Platforms. Like the mainstream media, certain social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter use their platforms to keep their users from learning the truth. With social media, however, it’s more devious. They’ve used algorithms to silence the right and allow leftist messages to prevail. It’s common to see a post on Twitter by a right-leaning source with a tag that says something like “This post is in dispute due to its non-factual content.” What gives them the right to deem the content non-factual? Interesting that I never see anything from a left-leaning source with the same tag. Twitter brazenly banned the Hunter Biden laptop story and had to admit and apologize for it, post-election. A study came out recently that showed a significant percentage of Biden voters would not have voted for him had they known about that. This is the threat to our democracy social media poses. It’s also time that these biased social media platforms are punished.
Well, time to reflect on the good things in life. Happy Thanksgiving.
