You Don't Stand a Chance in Dems' Kangaroo Court

"This is a hearing, I thought I was the one who was supposed to be heard?" — Attorney General Bill Barr, July 28, 2020.

Tuesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing was a perfect example of what America will look like with Joe Biden in the White House and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) as Majority Leader in the US Senate.

It was a kangaroo court that Kafka would have been proud of (or ashamed of, to be more accurate). It was emblematic of the worst kind of Orwellian dystopia and it played out before our very eyes on cable television.

Jerry Nadler, the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, lectured, harangued and attacked the attorney general in the most sanctimonious fashion:

Fine. This is politics in the big, bad city and Mr. Barr certainly knows how this game is played. Nadler and the Democrats' disgrace is that they refused to allow the AG to respond to the most egregious accusations hurled at him. They steam-rolled him, cut him off, and "re-claimed" their time in such a way that no question was allowed to be answered.

It was despicable.

As always, there's an important lesson in all of this for you.

If Nadler and the Democrats conduct themselves in the halls of Congress in this way for all the world to see, imagine how they'd abuse their power and railroad you when nobody is watching.

You are not the attorney general of the United States. You are not a retired 3-star Army general who is the incoming national security advisor. You are not a billionaire businessman who is running for president. Hell, you're not the president of the United States.

Look how Democrats treat Bill Barr, Michael Flynn, and Donald Trump when those individuals stand in their non-stop, craven attempts to acquire power.

How do you stand a chance against them if they feel emboldened to trample the rights of those august men in positions of power?

Of course, the answer is, you don't.

That's what this election is all about. It's about the Democrats' ongoing quest for absolute power. And you are standing in their way.

Take a lesson from their behavior yesterday, but, more importantly, take a lesson from Mr. Barr.

Unflappable. Stoic. Dignified. Resolved. And, most importantly, right.

He didn't miss a beat. He gave as good as he got. He stayed focus on the truth and he would not waver from his firm position on the facts.

This is what you must do between now and election day.

The Biden cabinet populated with the likes of Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib will not stop until Barack Obama's desire to "fundamentally transform America" is fully realized.

Now we've seen a glimpse of what that dystopian vision looks like.

You know what to do.
