Democrats seem unable to obfuscate their ill-constituted governance, hard as they try. Fighting tooth and nail against truth and transparency, they oppose laws keeping them honest. They abuse laws, courts, and the federal powers of the FBI, CIA, IRS, NSA, and DOJ, spying and fabricating charges to attack political opponents.

Democrats tainted 2020 election integrity by changing election laws and dismissing provisions. Their encroachments against state sovereignty included trying to expand Capitol Police who could use military-grade spying technology (controlled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi?).

Democrats seem to take pride in making sin inviolable and Americans’ unalienable rights criminal. Sympathetic to Marxists and fascists, Democrats’ inhumane treatment of Jan. 6 riot detainees and prosecutorial abuses being a matter of record are reminders of Wisconsin’s “John Doe'' cases — like the FBI breaking into innocent Americans’ homes, handcuffing, interrogating, and threatening them (and seizing their pocket Constitutions?). Paraphrasing Rep. Jim Jordan, does the FBI always take away the Constitution from Americans being interrogated?

What kind of teacher adopts curricula encouraging cognitive and behavioral outcomes based on race? Video showed a school board squelching parents’ justified dissent after parents discovered their children being subjected to perfidious critical race theory-based instruction that seemed crafted to ingrain systemic discrimination.

The National Education Association responded with support, including a national day of action with Marxist rallies and associated propaganda — only to flip-flop three days later and claim it was “anti-racist training” to protect teachers. Twenty states ban critical race theory, yet 5,000 teachers vow defiance. That’s 5,000 despots being as oppressive as one. Parents removing their children from public schools is only the beginning.

Where did President Joe Biden get the idea that American freedom fighters could be quelled? Not granting Cuban freedom fighters asylum? Who's running our government, communists?
