    Recently, a Connecticut teen, reportedly a gang member with an extensive rap sheet, was arrested in connection with 18 shootings.  For years this young man has been out on the streets, committing crimes, getting arrested, and repeatedly being released.  It's time to crack down on crime, but in many leftist districts, politicians and prosecutors are having none of it.


    There is an abnormal amount of crime in the U.S., though progressives continue to deny it.  The most convincing proof is the murder rate: there are 2.6 as many homicides in the U.S. as in Canada (2019 figures), five times as many as in Germany, more than sixteen times more than in Japan.  Violent crime in the U.S. is very real, and it is out of control.


    Politicians like Biden and Harris talk about bail reform, over-representation of minorities in prison, and "root causes" of everything.  But the plain truth is that there are violent criminals out there who are entirely lacking in conscience and feeling.  The only solution is to apprehend these criminals and send them to prison for a long time — and to make prison a place where they will not want to return after they are released.

    It’s been my lifelong observation that liberals are a mostly conflicted, tormented group suffering from mass psychosis. They wrap themselves up in do-good, virtue-signaling knots and then attempt to rationalize positions even they know are indefensible by putting forth the most tortured, illogical explanations imaginable. Merely calling those positions “lies” doesn’t go anywhere near far enough. Liberals have mastered the art of wanting to believe in a false reality, constructing a Bizarro Universe, while at the same time, excusing themselves for committing the very same transgressions against society and nature that they accuse others of doing.


    Let’s look at a few examples. Some of these are constants across the decades, while other situations are more transitory in character, driven by the events of the day. But the factor that remains the same in each circumstance is the liberal approach to twisting facts and reality, excusing their own bad behavior while ascribing to others the very “crimes” they are, in fact, guilty of committing.

    Ben Franklin at the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787 in a speech to his fellow members of the convention said of the newly drafted Constitution and the government it created:

    …and there is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and [I] believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it…

    Ben Franklin’s prescient forewarning has come to pass.  Over the past thirty-years, a plurality of ill-educated and malleable citizens have allowed the self-serving, decadent and nescient ruling class, in alliance with the radical left, to establish near-permanent despotism in the United States.  They have deliberately and inexorably widened the gulf between the people and the government and effectively split the nation into two de facto countries that are at ideological and societal loggerheads.

    The sham January 6 hearing being televised Thursday night is another battle in the war where the Democrats are doing everything they can not just to delegitimize Trump, the Republican Party, and its supporters, but to criminalize them as well.  January 6 itself is actually part of the broader civil war taking place.  The right were protesting what they saw, rightly so: a sham election.  It clearly got out of control and crossed a line by a crowd entering the Capitol en masse, but it was definitely not an insurrection or an attempt to overturn the election. 

    And how was it, then, at all different when you had, the year before, mass rioting and looting, where there were few to no arrests made, during the BLM riots across the country?  And why were there no arrests after the fact, as there were for January 6 participants, many of whom are still sitting in jail in clear violation of their civil rights and the Constitution?  Both the January 6 and the George Floyd riots were just more battles in the civil war currently taking place, where one side is trying to overturn the existing order, and the other side is trying to preserve it since the way it was structured at the founding of the country.

    You have another fairly large battle taking place when a memo written and issued by the Department of Justice cited unruly parents at school board meetings in Virginia as domestic terrorists.  They were just expressing their constitutional rights to demand that Critical Race Theory stop being taught to their young children.  But because the left and A.G. Merrick Garland saw that this was a direct threat to one of their most important voting blocs and power bases, the teachers' union, not to mention the ongoing indoctrination of schoolchildren in fake history that which claims that the United States was born out of racism and racist ideology
