Battles Over the Constitution
Time to call out the white elephant in the room. Let’s take a look at where people are protesting, what they are protesting, and why they are protesting. There is no big surprise that when we examine the issues, there are few common factors. First we look at the leaders in those hot beds.
Bill de Blasio is an American politician who has served as the 109th mayor of New York City since 2014. A member of the Democratic Party, he was New York City’s public advocate from 2010 to 2013.

Anthony Steven Evers is an American politician and educator who has served as the 46th governor of Wisconsin since January 7, 2019. A member of the Democratic Party, Evers previously served as the Wisconsin Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Philip Dunton Murphy is an American financier, diplomat and Democratic Party politician who has been the 56th governor of New Jersey since January 2018. He served as the United States Ambassador to Germany from 2009 to 2013, during which time he dealt with fallout from the United States diplomatic cables leak.
It’s no surprise they are all democrats. All of them have another thing in common. They all believe they have the right and duty to cease total control when it is in the best interest of the people they serve. The only thing is, they are far from serving the people who elected them. They all believe in a strong centralized government. We can see how that concept of a strong centralized government eliminates every opportunity of being represented. They all ignore the protests. They all call the protests a political move blaming it on the republicans. Every attempt to regain the balance of power guaranteed by state constitutions is called a political attack. In essence we have a group of democrats who believe executive power is supreme power and should not be questioned. We have a group of people who oppose the constitution they swore to uphold and protect. In reality we have a group of democrats who are fighting against the constitution and the balance of power it guarantees. After looking at a number of stories we gather a number of views from different angles.
I have to note, I did not include links to sites that require a paid subscription to view the article. When we look at the general claims from those who are protesting we see a few common threads. People are telling the press, they are exercising their right to assemble and freedom of speech. We also have a story where people are showing up carrying arms. They are drawing attention to the second amendment which has been under attack for some time. People are protesting because they are not being heard. People are protesting because they live in cities and states led by democrats who refuse to listen to the voice of those who elected them. Demonstrators believe in a republic where elected officials listen to the people who put them in office. But that system is not working in particular areas in the US. This is not an isolated incident and is not restricted to COVID rules and regulations. This is a problem that has been around for years. The virus only magnified the problem.
Of course we have a number of news reports that people are holding Trump signs and the media has joined those democratic leaders in an attempt to ignore the core issue and turn the nationwide protests into a political battle. A quick look at the signs and and few interviews with the protesters tells us, people are taking to the streets because their rights are being denied and they see leaders ignoring and defying the constitution. That is the real threat America faces and no smoke screen will cover that up. Protesters all over the US are drawing attention to the constitution and the treats we face today.
Let’s take a logical look at the accusations leveled by those democratic leaders and the media who has chosen to support them. First of all, news is biased. The news we see is controlled by the highest paying advertiser. If the democratic party is the highest bidder for advertising, the media will go out of their way to write and post stories that support their advertiser. Today it is more difficult to dig deep enough to find the truth on any subject.
We have a group of powerful democrats who call protests supporting and defending the constitution a political move. They call it a political battle. Let’s take the democratic view a step further. Isn’t it rather alarming when one party calls an organized protest supporting the constitution a battle? Of course those democrats chose to ignore and over ride the constitution. This has been going on long before this virus crisis. Democrats have led fights against the second amendment. Democrats are constantly introducing bills that give special privileges and funds to minorities. Which is often viewed as buying votes but can also be viewed as a violation of civil rights when one group, any group is given special favors, funding, and privileges and other groups are denied those privileges, loans, and funding. It does not matter which minority group is given special privileges, it is a violation of the basic fundamental, we are all created equal. In the long run, granting special privileges to select groups is one item on a long list of excuses democrats are using to challenge the constitution. Their plan is to chop away at the constitution one article and one amendment at a time.
Democrats have been trying to under mind the judicial branch of the government. Recent court decisions across the US pointed out how executive powers have been abused during this crisis. Democratic leaders shunned those court decisions calling them political attacks. It doesn’t matter if protesters in the streets or supreme court judges point out violations against the constitution, democrats claim they are political attacks. That should answer the question for all Americans. Democrats across the US have declared war on the constitution and America’s civil rights. It doesn’t make sense to call every attempt to uphold and defend the constitution an attack. Support for the constitution is viewed as an attack only by those who intend to alter, change, or destroy the constitution. And that is what those protests have been about and what the will continue to be about. Protecting the constitution is primary.
We don’t need a new Constitution. We need to elect people who take their oath to support and defend the constitution seriously. Our rights and liberty depend upon it.
