Why we can’t trust the government
In this letter, I’d like to take a look at various seemingly disparate topics and show how, together, they show the folly to place anything but a minimum of trust in our government or any party that tells you government is the solution ( that is, the Democrats).
The first is the tragic case of Olympic gymnasts who were abused in Michigan for 20 years by the team’s doctor, Dr. Larry Nassar. The fact that the US Olympic Committee and the US gymnastics program let this predator horribly abuse the girls in their care is bad enough. The girls are severely damaged for life. Eyes closed on the program also evoke the sometimes perverse desire of parents and society to see children succeed in sport no matter what the cost. It is a separate subject.
What was most troubling about the Senate testimony was that the FBI, that praised institution, failed to protect the girls or properly investigate the charges. In fact, the FBI told the girls to stay quiet so as not to undermine the program’s Olympic success while assuring them the investigation was ongoing. In fact, it was not. The FBI lied to these girls about their efforts to pursue Olympic glory and engage in the continuing practice of the CYA.
In other words, our government failed to protect these children first and then did not properly treat the perpetrators and facilitators when the charges were finally laid. Contemptible.
Now we come to the debacle in Afghanistan, where leading Democratic Party figure Biden made promises after promises that the situation in Afghanistan would be fine and that he could be trusted to handle the withdrawal well and evacuate all US citizens. Afghan Green Card Holders and Special Visa Applicants / Allies.
We all know what happened. Everything Biden told us about the situation was false at best, and a blatant lie at worst.
This man, allegedly famous for his “empathy” and “caring”, couldn’t care enough about our own citizens and friends in Afghanistan to spend 10 minutes figuring out how to properly handle the evacuation without leaving people behind or doing move back the country. to the same smart actors that we suppressed 20 years ago.
Once again, we have here an example of the government’s failure to fulfill its fundamental duty to protect those in its charge, and not for lack of capacity, but because of a lack of will and a primary concern for political posture.
And the covid? Do we think our government has done a good job in dealing with this deadliest pandemic? Trump had his missteps, sure, but I remember both Biden and Kamala Harris saying they wouldn’t trust a vaccine developed under the Trump FDA, as if he was controlling the vast crowd of bureaucrats. from that agency or any government agency (hell, his own FBI was there to have it).
Then, once elected, the message changed 180 degrees. Get vaccinated! It’s the best thing ever! What changed? Did the Democrats somehow improve the testing or development process, or did they change key FDA personnel? Nope. They deliberately sowed distrust of government efforts to support vaccine development, endangering Americans, but then tried to deceive the American public into taking credit for it, with the help of media accomplice, as usual.
Have the government or Democrats pushed the CDC to do extensive studies on Covid? No. We depend heavily on Israel for such studies. Instead, they simply impose their will on issues like masks and the vaccine, regardless of what the data might tell us, which in turn sows public distrust of safety and the effectiveness of the vaccine. (Again, to be clear, I strongly support vaccination.)
They have also almost ignored treatment options, whether it’s hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, or monoclonal antibodies, treatments that may have the ability to save lives. In fact, the monoclonal antibody treatment was approved by the FDA in November, and the HHS is confident enough in its effectiveness to have purchased millions of doses.
And yet, have you heard Biden say anything about it during this outbreak of the unvaccinated pandemic? He finally mentioned it in his September 9 speech, finally, but meanwhile Governor DeSantis in Florida is actively distributing it to treat Covid patients since it has been shown to reduce hospitalizations by 70%.
Biden and the talkative classes have remained largely silent on this highly effective treatment option precisely because their political enemies have embraced it, showing once again that the government party places government policy and power above self-interest. and the life of the people.
The latest example is the recent “fetal heart rate” law passed in Texas. Here we actually have a case where the government (in Texas, at least) is stepping in to protect the most innocent and vulnerable of human beings, unborn children.
And yet, what does the government party do when such a law is passed? They immediately take action to repeal the law in the name of protecting “women’s rights” and the ridiculously named idea of “reproductive rights” (abortion takes place AFTER reproduction, people!).
It is perhaps logically consistent that the same government that does not want to protect female gymnasts from sexual abuse, Afghan women from Taliban oppression and predation, or rape victims on the chaotic southern border is very keen to ensure the death of little girls in the womb. There is a cause they can defend!
These are the same people who demand not less, but much more control over the country and your freedoms, people who, when faced with real problems (often on their own initiative), regularly fail in their duty to do so. most basic to protect life and well-being. -be American citizens.
The Democratic Party and its massive force of allies in the bureaucracy, media, academia, journalism and now American business is simply a force for more and more governments with more and more control over our lives. It is not simple socialism, but CONTROL and the ability to reshape society according to the ideological precepts of awakened progressivism.
They don’t care who they hurt along the way, if they play by the rules, if they have to lie or cheat to achieve their goals. The end justifies the means, and so if that means lying about Russian collusion for 4 years, or colluding with our real enemies (re: General Milley’s reported discussions with the Chinese military), or chipping away at the racial animosity, they will do so as long as the action redounds to increase their potency.
These people must be fought and called out for their immoral methods and anti-American goals, or our republic will collapse. And they certainly cannot be charged with protecting your children, your health, or your property.
