Today....the perfect day for rebirth.

1.The name may be the same, but this current version is not the America as founded, nor as imagined. It was choked nearly to death, but we may just possibly be on the brink of rescue….by the Supreme Court, a Court that owes its own resuscitation to Donald Trump.



2. I suppose the real beginning was that of Western Civilization under the direction of the Judeo-Christian inspiration, specifically Genesis 1:26, which made clear the value of every single human life. Follow the thread from totalitarianism of Kings and Emperors, through the Magna Carta, to the Anglo-American Common Law tradition, equality before the law.

After the Bible, the second greatest document every composed is the Constitution.
America was America under the Constitution. But….that all ended during the 19th century, due to radicalism in academia: Progressives/Socialists.




3. There is nothing Progressives/Democrats oppose more than the system of government that the Founders envisioned. They hate checks and balances, separation of powers, individualism….and the restrictions of the Constitution. Their view is summarized in Obama’s claims of power: “I have a pen and a phone.” (I don' need no stinkin' Constitution!!!)

Democrat/Racist/Progressive Woodrow Wilson wrote in “The State,” 1889, that "Government does now whatever experience permits or the times demand." His writings attack the Constitution, and the ideas of natural and individual rights. Along with Frank J. Goodnow, they pioneered the concept of the ‘administrative state,’ which separated the administration of government from the limitations of constitutional government. (see Pestritto, “American Progressivism)



4. “A main problem was that Americans believed their rights "unalienable," to use the Declaration's term—i.e., they cannot be defined or taken away by government. This made it difficult for Progressives to put the government in charge of private property, and so Goodnow argued for a positive understanding of rights as granted by government itself:

The rights which [an individual] possesses are...conferred upon him, not by his Creator, but rather by the society to which he belongs. What they are is to be determined by the legislative authority in view of the needs of that society. Social expediency, rather than natural right, is thus to determine the sphere of individual freedom of action.”

5. But Americans had had enough of Progressives, and voted in Trump….and Trump made the Supreme Court an American agency once again.

“Thursday's ruling in the case of West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency significantly confined the ability of unelected federal bureaucrats to make law or policy outside of Congress.

In the decision written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court held 6-3 that under the so-called major questions doctrine, judges can strike down federal agency regulations that have substantial economic effects when Congress did not give explicit authority to the agency to make such decisions.
While the court decision involved the Environmental Protection Agency and its efforts to restrain coal-fired electric plants, experts warned it could have vast impact on regulatory agencies.....

The ruling reaffirms the Founding Fathers' belief that "any limits on freedom be passed by Congress, not by kings and exchequers and bureaucrats and ministers," J. Christian Adams, a former U.S. Justice Department attorney, told Just the News."

After battling bureaucrats throughout presidency, Trump gets last laugh against 'deep state'
A Trump-infused Supreme Court reins in federal bureaucracy in historic fashion.

That's the American view....no governance by fiat.....by order, by dictatorship.

Americans get to vote, legally, legitimately, and not by the orders of an elite.

Well, once the DementocRats are forced to stop flatlining us and brainwashing the morons and sheeples, and the entire DNC thrown into Gitmo..........
then and only then can we even begin to repair whats been done. And even with that, it will take an entire generation to repair whats been done, if not longer.

First and foremost:

Unless we can pry the schools from them, as earlier American pried their slaves from them.....America is lost.

6. The greatest distinction between Democrats/Progressives, and Americans, is that the former believe their views are the only views that matter. For the rest of us...'you will learn to follow orders!!!!!!"



In 1937, at the height of the New Deal, Walter Lippmann, a repentant progressive, noted that:

“Throughout the world, in the name of progress, men who call themselves communists, socialists, fascists, nationalists, progressives, and even liberals, are unanimous in holding that government with its instruments of coercion must by commanding the people how they shall live, direct the course of civilization and fix the shape of things to come. . . .

[T]he premises of authoritarian collectivism have become the working beliefs, the self-evident assumptions, the unquestioned axioms, not only of all the revolutionary regimes, but of nearly every effort which lays claim to being enlightened, humane, and progressive.


So universal is the dominion of this dogma over the minds of contemporary men that no one is taken seriously as a statesman or a theorist who does not come forward with proposals to magnify the power of public officials and to extend and multiply their intervention in human affairs. Unless he is authoritarian and collectivist, he is a mossback, a reactionary, at best an amiable eccentric swimming hopelessly against the tide. It is a strong tide. Though despotism is no novelty in human affairs, it is probably true that at no time in twenty-five hundred years has any western government claimed for itself a jurisdiction over men’s lives comparable with that which is officially attempted in totalitarian states. . . .

Nearly everywhere the mark of a progressive is that he relies at last upon the increased power of officials to improve the condition of men."



Until this week, when Trump's Supreme Court proclaimed a resounding "NO" to rule by bureaucrats.

The schools were lost to them back in the 1980's, literally the year after I graduated.
They've had all this time to destroy the public school system from within, which they've done.
And unlike repairing society and the people, this can be done in one or two years time, if planned correctly and strategically.

The Left is about to get rolled-back:
From their MSM propaganda networks
to their university leftist programming centers
to their CRT propaganda teachings in schools
to their "deep state" hold on the government
to their creeping attacks on family values
to their lawless prosecutors
to their drug culture
to their "great replacement" operation
to their grip on school boards
to their tranny bullshit getting little kids butchered
to their warped views of the US military
to their vicious attacks on parental rights
to their voter fraud networks
to their hatred of the Founding Fathers
to their hatred of Patriotism, the American flag, and THE 4TH OF JULY

As I've said before.... I wish I had your optimism.

They will fight, cheat, lie and imprison.....and our side never seems to have the killer instinct.

I'm rootin' for you.

7. “Totalitarian democracy” is a term made famous by J. L. Talmon to refer to a system of government in which lawfully elected representatives maintain the integrity of a nation state whose citizens, while granted the right to vote, have little or no participation in the decision-making process of the government.





Repeating the venerable view of Progressives/Democrats, the trick is to have unelected judges overturn the wishes of voters.





“If liberals could trust the voters, they wouldn’t need the Court to invent ludicrous ‘constitutional rights’ for them in the first place.



The only limit on liberal insanity in this country is how many issues liberals can get before a court…A lot is at stake for liberals with the court. If they lose a liberal vote, they will be forced t fight political battles through a messy little system know as ‘democracy.’



When conservative judges strike down laws, it’s because of what’s in the Constitution. When liberal judges strike down laws (or impose new laws, such as tax increases), it’s because of what’s in the New York Times.



Someday I’d like to see a true right-wing court just to demonstrate what ‘conservative’ judicial activism would really look like. To correspond to the ‘living Constitution’ wielded by liberal jurists, the court would have to start discovering constitutional clauses invalidating the income tax, prohibiting abortion across the nation, and protecting the right to suck the brains out of Democrats- all in the penumbras, you understand.”

Coulter.

PoliticalChic, your thread title, "The Resuscitation Of America", made me think of a work experience I had. I was doing a shift of watching heart monitors in the coronary care unit of a large urban hospital.

Usually, I would observe a continuum of decline of cardiac activity leading to a life-threatening event, and have time to notify all the right personnel to deal with it. On this occasion, there was no warning -- the patient suddenly went from relatively normal cardiac rhythm to ventricular fibrillation, the stuff that will kill you quick. There happened to be a nurse in the room with the patient, taking her blood pressure, and she happened to be looking at the monitor when this happened. Before I even had the chance to start the process of notifying the team of folks whose job was dealing with the life-threatening event, the nurse made the unusual choice and thumped the patient on the chest, which had the desired effect, converting the patient back into normal rhythm. At this time, many years ago, the chest thump was not often the first choice for dealing with such an event. This nurse, who was one of my favorite co-workers, just intuited what needed to be done, and the patient who was successfully yanked from the jaws of death, looked up and asked "Did y'all get my blood pressure before I passed out?" and then she went on to eat her dinner.

So who or what is going to be the intuitive chest thump that's going to yank America from the jaws of death and resuscitate her? It seems to me like following the continuum of decline of America's heart rhythm and employing the steps necessary to save the patient is just not going to do the job. I simply think we are beyond messing with the Code Blue and need to go right to hammering good and hard on the heart of this country. It's as close to dead as that human patient was, had the intervention the nurse used not been available.

Precordial Chest Thump -- one good, hard thump with a closed fist, on the sternum, aimed to get the heart back into normal rhythm.

What an interesting story, and analogy....and thank God for that nurse!

I don't know what sort of chest thump could occur......you've seen the posts from inveterate Democrat drones who will never admit the truth......


I just don't have the optimism......and don't want to see another Civil War.


“When a society descends into madness, the results are always devastating. Jung, who studied mass psychoses, wrote that the individuals who make up the affected society “become morally and spiritually inferior.” They become “unreasonable, irresponsible, emotional, erratic and unreliable.”

Worst of all, a psychotic mob will engage in atrocities that any solitary individual within the group would normally never consider. Yet through it all, those affected remain unaware of their condition and cannot recognize the error in their ways."

I don't want to see a civil war either, nor do I believe that it is the only organic process that could save the dying patient.

The psychotic mob is the ventricular fibrillation, and it simply is itself, just as the devil created it. It doesn't have the capability to assess what is true and what is false. Its only role is to kill the patient.

I see the repeal of RvW as the initial cognitive impulse in the mind of that life-saving nurse. It will be interesting to see the rest of the process -- raising the hand, making the fist, initiating the hard downward trajectory of the fist and striking the sternum. Many processes go into what looks like one action.

THUMP!

Actually, for me, the EPA ruling, that elites, experts, bureaucrats decisions do not require the rest of us to obey.....this is the biggie.

We'll see if the Left obeys either decision.

You are probably right on.

Living in one of the four states that strictly prohibit abortion, I will actually have to break down and subscribe to the local paper so I can watch what's going on.

Which is different from THUD.

THUD is the noise that happens in the heads of most leftists when they try to craft and express coherent thought. THUD.

Do you remember when the EPA called every mud puddle a "wetland" that could not be disturbed? Farmers went nuts trying to comply with that stupid EPA policy. Just one example of government agencies misusing their authority.

It'll be a glorious day when that entity is dissolved.

My brother lived on some off-grid land in Montana and got his water out of a creek. When he learned that the owners of the property upstream were fouling the creek with their own waste, he contacted the EPA, along with three or four other property owners who lived downstream of him and were affected too. The EPA never returned their calls.

I have posted a number of threads about exactly that ploy.....environmentalism used to deprive Americans of their private property......like this:


. For environmentalists, e.g., Liberals, people must be inconvenienced, sacrificed, robbed of their land rights, punished in any manner....for the god 'nature.'


All efforts must be made to preserve each and every species extant.

WHY????
Why the waste of efforts and treasure???

a. "The Endangered Species Act has not saved any species, but the costs for trying for trying have run into the billions.In Travis County, Texas, for example, listing just two songbirds as endangers caused a $300 million loss in property values by limiting development potential, according to the chief tax appraiser."
Kaufman, "No Turning Back," p. 11.


b. "Anyone who thinks that nature prefers humans and our environment or any species we know and love should consider that 99.9 percent of the billions of species that have lived on earth over the past 3.5 billion years have been dismissed into oblivion."
Ibid, p. 12


b. The Spotted Owl campaign, as is so very many other environmental campaigns, a deceit. It is a way of advancing the real agenda, confiscating property, making land off-limit, and eliminating any human presence. No matter the cost. No matter the result.


“Look, I don’t doubt that the regulatory processed that we put in place to produce the environmental goods that we wan have taken a toll on the economy generally and the rural economy in particular. Telling the story that rural communities are being harmed may tug at the heartstrings of rural people, but no one else will care.


You see, what the sage grouse is about is, they want to stop drilling in beautiful Wyoming. That’s the hidden agenda….Take the spotted owl case….One of the people instrumental in shutting down the forests told me that ‘if the spotted owl hadn’t existed, we would have had to invent it.’ The goal was to stop logging….It is totally questionable whether owls were endangered by logging. Was it good for the overall health of the forest? Probably not. Was it good for the spotted owl? It probably didn’t make a difference.

Did it hurt the overall economies of the West? Yes.”
Nickson, “Eco-Fascists,” p.129.




In terms of the effect on the national economy...it's akin to biting one's own hand....with no real gain.
