Our Elites Donít See Whatís Coming
American Greatness ^ | 6 Nov, 2019 | Ned Ryun

History shows us that when the ruling class and elites refuse to do what they should and instead do what they can, creating a government rigged in their favor, destroying the rule of law, and papering over corruption and injustice, the peasants pick up pitchforks and torches and they come for those who have behaved so abominably. Perhaps our elites should read more of that history.

What a world we live in. A confidential asset of a hyper-political CIA director, likely handpicked by the director to spy on the Trump White House, is now called a “whistleblower.” The son of a former vice-president and a current Democrat nominee was apparently eyeball-deep in corruption in Ukraine, and the Left screams that the president—for daring to broach the issue with Ukraine—should be impeached. Political pygmies, otherwise known as the Democrat 2020 field, prance about the country offering up program ideas tallying up to over $200 trillion in the first ten years of operation (against the roughly $44 trillion the government would bring in over the same time). Such programs would cost us millions of jobs, among other bad consequences. Yet we are expected to believe these are serious people.

All the while the mainstream propagandists gaslight us by shrieking that Trump is the corrupt one, that Trump’s ideas are destructive as the economy soars and unemployment remains at 50 year lows. When the Washington Post intones that “Democracy dies in darkness” they evince no apparent awareness of irony. They’re knifing democracy to death every single day.

Over 100 million killed by their own leftist governments and these genius democRATs running for present want to march proudly down the same path to insanity.

The trouble is that quite often, the picking up of pitchforks and pruning hooks comes far too late to stall the demagogue.

BOTH parties cooperated to abrogate the Constitution on Usurpation Day, January 20, 2009.

Barack Obama is NOT a natural born citizen.

What everyone is focused on are only the last crimes of an eight year crime spree enabled by ignoring the Constitution.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

And Pelosi signed the document that legitimatized Barak Obama as a US citizen and a path way to the presidency.

Geez, I guess I blinked when the people from Valenzuela topple their government! Yes they were out there with pitchforks in hand protesting in the millions but the communist socialist globalist government withstood their protests and still has them in shackles!! Their government won! Don’t be too sure that we Americans can fall into the same fade in this county as them!! ...remember 70% brainwashed millennials would love to have a socialist government in this country! You’ll never know when they might out number us in the future and vote for a full blown communist...hope I’m dead by then!!

A very well-written column.

Simply put, the first to last purpose of congressmen and senators is reelection. All else, including our security and liberty are irrelevant.

It’s why parasitic islam will grow until it kills its host.

Perhaps our elites should read more of that history.

Again with the naive assumption that deep state conspirators are ignorant of history and/or misunderstand the mechanics of our constitutional republic. Wrong! Look, it's all a crap shoot; you assess your odds and take your chances.

When was the last time the (colonial) US government was overthrown? 250 years ago? Those are great odds. The French? 230 years ago - ditto. What about the Brits? 1688 - again, fantastic odds that existing government will not be threatened by current events.

Nazi Germany was occupying territory, demanding concessions and violating treaties with Hitler absolutely pushing the envelope. Time/patience finally wore out, and yet they still almost prevailed. Chances are still very much in the favor of the current occupation government that they will survive this little kerfuffle. They are so close to permanently altering US demographics that will allow them to literally rule in perpetuity.

AOC et al are counting on earning 10s of millions during the careers if the cards play out to their favor.

“the peasants pick up pitchforks and torches and they come for those who have behaved so abominably. “

They truly, literally, believe it cannot happen to them. Just as they believe they are the best, brightest, smartest people ever to walk the earth.
They are certain they have nothing to learn from the past.
When it happens to them, they will be -utterly- shocked.

The very definition of hubris.

This article started out very well and then got chatty/snarky. He could do better.
