Who Are the Real Insurrectionists?
Recently, Democrats have been despondent over President Joe Biden’s sinking poll numbers. His policies on the economy, energy, foreign policy, the border, and COVID-19 all have lost majority support.
As a result, the left now variously alleges that either in 2022, when it expects to lose the Congress, or in 2024, when it fears losing the presidency, Republicans will “destroy democracy” or stage a coup.
A cynic might suggest that those on the left praise democracy when they get elected, only to claim it is broken when they lose. Or they hope to avoid their defeat by trying to terrify the electorate. Or they mask their own revolutionary propensities by projecting them onto their opponents.
After all, who is trying to federalize election laws in national elections contrary to the spirit of the Constitution? Who wishes to repeal or circumvent the Electoral College? Who wishes to destroy the more than 180-year-old Senate filibuster, the over 150-year-old nine-justice Supreme Court, and the more than 60-year-old 50-state union?
Who is attacking the founding constitutional idea of two senators per state?
The Constitution also clearly states that “When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside.” Who slammed through the impeachment of former President Donald Trump without a presiding chief justice?
Never had a president been either impeached twice or tried in the Senate as a private citizen. Who did both? --->READ MORE from Victor Davis Hanson HERE

Poll: More Democrats Denied Trump Won — Where Were Democracy Fears Then?
More Democrats denied that former President Donald Trump won the 2016 election than the people who claimed President Joe Biden wasn’t legitimately elected in 2020, but the Democrat and corporate media didn’t bother lying that American democracy was crumbling then.
A new poll from The Washington Post asked respondents, “Regardless of whom you supported in the 2020 election, do you think Joe Biden’s election as president was legitimate, or was he not legitimately elected?”
Nearly 70 percent of respondents testified that the 2020 election that resulted in President Joe Biden assuming office was legitimate. Approximately 29 percent admitted they did not believe the legitimacy of the election results.
Corporate media have constantly used poll numbers like these, paired with the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, to claim that Republicans concerned about election integrity are engaging in a so-called “bloodless, legalized form” of “insurrection.”
“One year later, Trump’s ‘Big Lie’ still dominates GOP,” one headline from The Hill read. --->READ MORE HERE
