It is with a heavy heart that the Freedom Party acknowledges that the Second American Civil War has now begun. February 9, 2017, is a day that will be remembered as when the Liberal Elites took the final, eventful step to plunge America into its second civil war.
From the election of November 8, 2016, until Inauguration Day January 19, 2017, the Liberal Elites refused to acknowledge the mistakes of the Democrat Party’s election strategy, and instead worked with their Liberal News Media propaganda machine to permanently divide the US with a mantra of “not my President”. The Freedom Party’s “Post-Mortem” on the 2016 election (https://www.freedomparty.com/issue/2016presidential/) concluded that the fundamental root cause was the shift of the Democratic Party base from Center/Center-Left to Far-Left/Socialist, which disenfranchised millions of traditional Democratic Voters.
On Inauguration Day January 19, 2017, the Liberal Elites controlling the Democrat Party declared with one voice – “Never Trump – Scorched Earth”. The Liberal Elites vowed to fight every Cabinet Nominee, every Bill, and every Executive Order. They mobilized their propaganda machine in the news media to falsify information and to “spin” every article and presentation with speculation, innuendo, and pejorative descriptions. California is today actively discussing secession, Congresswoman Maxine Watters (D-CA) calls for the President’s impeachment the day he takes office, and States are actively declaring they will ignore Federal Law regarding illegal immigration and criminal felons.
Only once in the course of American History has an incoming President and his agenda been so adamantly opposed – the 16th President Abraham Lincoln. As you recall, Lincoln received only 40 percent of the popular vote, but handily defeated the three other candidates in the Electoral College. Upon Lincoln’s election, the Democrat Party declared in one voice – “Never Lincoln – Scorched Earth”. By the time of Lincoln’s inauguration on March 4, 1861, seven Democrat states had seceded, and the Confederate States of America had been formally established, with Jefferson Davis as its elected president.
On February 9, 2017, the Liberal Elite Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a US District Court decision that directly invalidated the US Law Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1952 that grants the president’s authority to declare such suspensions in section 212(f) of the INA, the pertinent part of which reads as follows:
“(f) Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
The basis of the Ninth Circuit decision was crafted to deliberately circumvent the US Constitution, which clearly delineates that if a law is unpopular it is up to Congress and the President (or even without the President’s support for a Congressional override of a veto) to change the Law – NOT for the Judicial Branch to unilaterally pick and choose which Laws they like.
Therefore, today we now find America deeply divided by the Liberal Elites, whereupon both the Liberal Elite Democrats in Congress and the Liberal Elites in the Judiciary have decided to wage war against the US Constitution, the US President, and the will of the American voters who constitutionally elected President Trump (whether or not you agree with any of his policies).
But this is NOT just a “war of words and ideas” by the Liberal Elites. Violence is now escalating across America. Liberal Elites believe if you disagree with a position, you can/should riot and refuse to comport with US Law. The Liberal Elites encourage and support riots and assaults by their masked goons against innocent people who disagree with their liberal positions, violently suppress Free Speech if it disagrees with their position, vilify anyone supporting cooperation instead of confrontation, file lawsuits in Liberal Courts to block Federal Law rather than change the Law, and are even trying to have California secede from the Union (with others to follow).
How is this different from Lincoln’s America of 1861?
The Freedom Party believes that the Liberal Elites are now crossing into 18 U.S. Code Chapter 115 – TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.
The Democrat Party needs to STOP! Someone, somewhere in the Democrat Party must regain control and bring the Party back to the Center, or the Party will finally de-evolve into the National Socialist Party – relying on intimidation, threats, and violence to control speech and thought. John and Robert Kennedy, and Dr. Martin Luther King, would never have supported nor allowed such violence and hatred by their Democrat Party to control and manipulate America.
The consequences of continued violence and hatred by the Liberal Elites can have only one eventual outcome – physical conflict. While that might sound incendiary, reflect on: Black Lives Matter broadcasting “What do we want – Dead Cops; When do we want it – NOW”; Protesters calling for the assassination of President Trump (like the Democrat South did against President Lincoln in 1864); and the physical violent attacks on so many innocent people by Liberal Protesters. How long until the Liberal Elites are successful in fomenting insurrection? How long until “the folks” arm themselves and start shooting back when threatened by Liberal Protesters?
Unbelievably, it appears that the Liberal Elite Leadership in the Democrat Party is actually encouraging that outcome. It appears that without significant intervention by the dwindling number of Moderate supporters in the Democrat Party, “Liberal First – Not My America” will tear the country into Civil War.
Listening to the escalating drumbeat of Liberal Hatred in Congress, the Judiciary, and in the Liberal Press, it is only a matter of time now. President Trump has faults, but so did Lincoln. But exactly like the Democrats did with President Lincoln, the Liberal Elite Democrats are refusing to even give President Trump a chance and work for the good of the country. Trump is many things, but he is not a Racist, a Homophobe, an Islamaphobe, nor crazy – he IS trying his best, but no one in the Party of Kennedy is reaching out to help him.
As President Lincoln said on November 19, 1863:
“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
“But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”.
Why must we repeat history?
