This is my second post on the subject of the attack on our Constitution. The matter is that important.
Let’s think about a hypothetical situation. Trump wakes up one day in 2018 and calls Kayleigh McEnany into the Oval Office. He says, “Kayleigh, tell the press corp today that we are going to flag any post on Facebook and Twitter that refers to Russian Collusion. We are going to report them to Zuckerberg and Dorsey to have them pull these dangerous posts because they are a threat to National Security.” Kayleigh would look at the President in disbelief and say, “Mr. President, that violates the 1st Amendment.” The press and people will want your head on a platter. Thank God Kayleigh prevailed. Adam Schiff already started impeachment proceedings. Remember, this scenario was hypothetical.
Fast forward to today. The Biden administration is not hiding what they are doing. They are destroying the 1st Amendment as they have tried with the 2nd, 4th, 10th, 14th. Nothing about the Constitution is sacred or absolute for Biden. Jen Psaki hid nothing this week as she told reporters that the White House was flagging posts on Social Media that presented misinformation. These posts were then forwarded to the respective platform to be removed from public view. When Joe Biden was asked about the plan, he justified it by claiming these people posting “misinformation” were killing people. Hyperbole reigns supreme in the Biden White House. Pathetic. At the same time, none of the Main Stream Media outlets have any issue with Biden’s actions and are fully supportive. Where are the checks and balances between the Media and the White House? It does not exist. Biden and Harris are receiving a free pass. And by the way, this scenario is real.
The role of the media is to report the news accurately and ensure that the government is not overstepping its authority. The media is failing on both counts. How do these nodding heads at CNN and MSNBC look themselves in the mirror and think they are doing their job? They cannot. Instead, by applauding Biden for his actions, they are complicit in his destruction of the most crucial section of the Constitution for journalists and the press. Is it a case of ignorance on their part, or do they hope that their audience is ambivalent to the harm they are creating?
Either way, they are causing damage to our Constitution that may never be repaired. Once the freedom of the 1st Amendment has been restricted or destroyed, it will never be restored. Our God-Given rights are tenuous.
They were written by brilliant men and have survived for nearly 250 years. They can, however, topple if the correct pressure is exerted on them. That is what Joe Biden is doing. Knowingly or subliminally. Giving them credit for understanding the ramifications of their efforts might be giving them too much credit. They are ignorant to what they are doing or reporting on as long as it is Anti-Trump, it is okay with them.
Biden’s attack on the Constitution is yet another piece of our country’s subversion from the inside. If no one stands up to this administration, they will transform America in four short years. It will be the coup our enemies could never pull off. Let this first six months be a preview of coming attractions.
