A fascist in democracy’s clothing



Whenever a democrat talks about saving the democracy, what he or she means is to destroy it. Leading the charge to wreck the United States forever is Adam Schiff. You might remember that Schiff is notorious for his mendacity.

Because if there’s one thing that comes through in the report from Obama-appointed Department of Justice Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz, and from his testimony on Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, it is this:

Schiff is a dissembler, a prevaricator, a distortionist, a spreader of falsehoods. In Chicago we use the short word: liar.

It was Schiff who insisted all along that FBI and Department of Justice officials did not abuse the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) courts or hide information from judges.

But according to Horowitz, that’s what the FBI did.

We now know from the Horowitz report that the dossier played a “central and essential role” in obtaining warrants to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign.

We also know that Schiff lied to the public about what had happened, as his media handmaidens protected him and trashed his fellow House Intelligence Committee member, U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes, a California Republican, who tried to warn the country of the FISA abuse.

He read a false conversation into the official records.

Schiff is a thoroughly dishonest pile of trash. Now he has a plan for America. He calls it his “Defending Democracy Agenda.”

The centerpiece of Schiff’s agenda is his “Protecting Our Democracy Act,” legislation that he first introduced in 2020 to bolster Congress’ ability to enforce subpoenas, limit presidential pardon power and strengthen whistleblower protections. The bill passed the House in 2021, but stalled in the Senate, although some provisions increasing Congress’ oversight of the executive branch made it into law. Schiff reintroduced the legislation last year, but it has yet to get a hearing in the GOP-led House.

Schiff said he has since concluded that legislative reforms would not go far enough and that major structural reforms were necessary. Some of his proposals, such as abolishing the Electoral College or overturning the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision on campaign finance, would require constitutional amendments. He also backs changing the Senate’s rules to abolish the filibuster, which he says is necessary to enshrine voting rights, abortion protections and gun safety measures into law.

Schiff seems confused. We are not a democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic but Schiff would love to see a pure democracy. But as James Madison pointed out, true democracies always fail.

One of Madison’s observations was that all true democracies fail. He pointed out a fundamental dilemma-people acquiring liberty-creates factions-factions destroy liberty. Vladimir Putin understands this “weakness” well.

Madison defines faction as: “A number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adversed to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.”

Factions ina democracies generally lead to the tyranny of the majority

Factions and the tyranny of the majority remain threats wherever democracy is unconstrained. Witness the sad fates of Germany under Adolph Hitler, Zimbabwe under Robert Mugabe, the Philippines under Ferdinand Marcos, Venezuela under Hugo Chávez, Bolivia under Evo Morales, and Russia under Vladimir Putin, all democratically elected leaders. The lesson, in the oft-quoted words of Winston Churchill, is that “democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” As the foregoing examples underscore, democracy can fail with horrific consequences.

To that pantheon we can add Schiff and Biden. Hamilton described them well

  • “A successful faction may erect a tyranny on the ruins of order and law.”
  • “… men are ambitious, vindictive, and rapacious.”
  • “A spirit of faction, which is apt to mingle its poison in the deliberations of all bodies of men, will often hurry the persons of whom they are composed into improprieties and excesses, for which they would blush in a private capacity.”

Eliminating the filibuster would obliterate the difference between the House and the Senate, but Schiff isn’t done yet:

— Making voting easier by designating Election Day a federal holiday, expanding automatic voter registration through government agencies like the Department of Motor Vehicles and universal vote-by-mail access

Motor Voter would make illegal aliens voters in states which allow illegals to gain a driver’s license. Universal vote by mail is another nightmare scenario that would open to flood gates to voter fraud.

Schiff would tear up the Constitution in a heartbeat.

Adam Schiff is a dishonest and dangerous man who longs for a Communist type one-party fascist state to rule America- his party.

All in the name of democracy.

Schiff may have a problem revalidating vs former Dodger Great, Steve Garvey… It will be an interesting campaign, because Harvey has a record of not taking on things half cocked. Harvey has better image appeal and is likely to draw a lot of testimonials. Should Schiff lose, he would be history.

Schiff seems confused. We are not a democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic but Schiff would love to see a pure democracy.

Well, he’d love it if Democrats have the majority. When they lost that majority, they would whine and cry about the unfairness of Republicans using their own rules against them. Schiff is the epitome of the slimeball, conceited, arrogant, politician that only looks to his own interests.

Motor Voter would make illegal aliens voters in states which allow illegals to gain a driver’s license. Universal vote by mail is another nightmare scenario that would open to flood gates to voter fraud.

Which is, of course, the entire point. Democrats do nothing that does not have an election fraud utility. They also oppose anything that provides actual election security. It’s not a coincidence, it’s a strategy. Schiff is a worm that thinks he can become the dictator that controls lives.

No, I think they mean as they say, to save democracy.

The problem with that is that democracy is an immature form of popular government, a first attempt. Madison along with the other founders would not tolerate a democracy, which, as Madison noted, were “as short in their lives as they were violent in their deaths.”

“… expanding automatic voter registration…”

A few years back, the doltish obama and eric holder toured the country, touting universal voter registration. They know that 40% of registered voters regularly do not vote, and they’re after those blank ballots. Registering everyone would increase that number of blank ballots, which the democrats plan to harvest where that is legal, or just “help” fill in. Most people who aren’t interested in politics, i.e., those who don’t vote, would likely register as democrats, as they believe republicans are racist sexist homophobes.

as they believe republicans are racist sexist homophobes.

And Republicans do nothing to disabuse them of that belief.

And Republicans do nothing to disabuse them of that belief.

Well, except for doing nothing that implies they are racist, sexist or homophobic. Otherwise, I guess nothing.

I note you do not dispute the election fraud vote harvesting aspect of the comment. Revealing.

you repubs seriously need to get a clue
embrace the right wing fascist stuff for what it is – right wing
leftists are NOT NAZIS never were and never will be
leftists are COMMUNISTS
please educate yourself on these issues

Is there some part of National SOCIALISM you don’t quite comprehend? Fascism is a method, not an ideology. For instance, Democrats are fascists because they use political violence, intimidation, censorship, political imprisonment and force to carry out their agenda.

Is there some part of National SOCIALISM you don’t quite comprehend?

There’s apparently something you don’t quite comprehend. Soon after taking power in 1933, Hitler kicked socialists and Communists out of the civil service and banned labor unions.

What kind of socialist bans socialists? Someone who’s not actually a socialist.

The “socialist” label was just an angle to make the masses think he was on their side, in much the same way Trump uses the “MAGA” label.

What you don’t understand is that industry, education, health care and, of course, media was all socialized. You worked where the government told you to work. Your wages was what the government said they were. You served in the military. You made what the government told you to make. So, how is this not socialism?

Where is the evidence he kicked socialists out of government? I’d love to see it. Of course, he kicked Jews out of government, “cancelled” them, as it were. Sound familiar? He had the Sturmabteilung to disrupt political opponent’s rallies and protests. Sound familiar? He had the Ministry of Propaganda censor opposition and spread government lies. Sound familiar? Didn’t your school teach world history?

Hitler may not have been a “pure” socialist, but what socialist actually is?

Nazism is socialism, totalitarianism and fascist. Just like todays Democrats.

This “right wing facist” crap is a bunch of nonsense. It’s completely incoherent and makes no sense.

Does the temperature setting in your car have hot at both ends? No, of course not. There is a single continuum with a minimum at one end and the maximum at the other end.

Maximum freedom and liberty exist on the right; maximum state power and minimum individual autonomy exist on the left.

But, given that you’re barely able to type in complete words let alone sentences, I expect this analogy to be completely lost on you…

RIght wingers want to take the democratic component out of our democratic republic because a majority of voters oppose their bullshit.

For example, a majority of voters don’t support their extreme restrictions on abortion. There wasn’t a single state where a majority of voters supported the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Actually, it’s the simple fact that the United States of America is not a democracy but a constitutional democratic republic.

The majority of voters don’t support abortion after the first trimester. Is that what Democrats would settle for? Democrats did not even abide by Roe v. Wade, a clear example of you leftists just using laws when they benefit you and ignoring them when they restrict your behavior.

Tell it to Trump, who said all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution, can be terminated if he disagrees with election results. That NO EVIDENCE was found supporting ANY of his claims of “MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION” doesn’t enter into the equation.

Actually, it’s the simple fact that the United States of America is not a democracy but a constitutional democratic republic.

Yeah, he said that referring to how Democrats view elections, which is an absolute, verified fact.

01/14/24 – Almost half of Haley supporters say they would vote for Biden over Trump: Iowa poll

…Just under half of likely Iowa GOP caucusgoers who support former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley indicated that they would make a crossover to the Democratic party, saying that they would rather vote for President Biden over former President Trump.

A new NBC News/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll released just one day before the Iowa caucuses found that 43 percent of Haley backers in the state said they would vote for Biden if Trump is the GOP nominee, while 23 percent say they would vote for the former president. Eight percent said they would vote for independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

“Haley is consolidating the anti-Trump vote,” J. Ann Selzer, a pollster who has conducted the Iowa survey over the last three decades, told NBC. “She does well with the people who define themselves as anti-Trump.” …

Trump CAN’T WIN a legitimate election.

So, is this NBC skewed, leftist, manipulated poll one of those you believe in or one of those that prove that polls don’t mean anything? Just wondering.

Haley is careful to run her campaign as a successor to Trump, not an alternative. It is highly doubtful that her followers are anti-Trump. Her primary complaint about Trump is that “chaos follows him”. What she doesn’t realize is that the chaos Democrats create for the purposes of disruption and obstruction would follow her as well. And DeSantis. And Vivek. In fact, any Republican would suffer the same anti-government harassment and violence as Trump, with the possible exception of Cheney… unless, of course, she dared to stray off the Democrat reservation.

But, I like it when you grasp at straws. It’s so pathetically hilarious.

I didn’t mean to imply she IS a successor to Trump, only that she hasn’t torn into Trump and alienated any Trump followers that might support her. She is merely trying to walk that tightrope.

Comrade Greggie, you keep trying to claim that Trump was referring to himself, not the Democrat Party with that incomplete statement.

You know, and I know, that the election was rigged partly to using Zuckerbucks which is now illegal in a number of states.

Now, I know you are severely stupid but how many times do you need to be corrected?

Democrats want no limits, murder up to the time of birth do a majority of the voters support that?
Roe was bad law, now State legislators decide the limits its people will tolerate.
What will the invaders tolerate?
