C4LMD – Baltimore County Council members fight Kamenetz “sanctuary” order

I have big news to report this week.

Several Baltimore County Council members announced Tuesday plans to fight Executive Kevin Kamenetz’s “sanctuary county” executive order with counter measures of their own.
Council Members Todd Crandell (R-Dundalk), David Marks (R-Perry Hall), and Wade Kach (R-Hereford) will introduce legislation that will untie the hands of law enforcement so that they can do their job.

Councilman Todd Crandell who is leading the effort said:

“What this would do is basically send a message that, if you are in this country illegally and convicted of a crime and sentenced to incarceration at the Baltimore County Detention Center, that you would be subject to federal immigration statutes.”

It’s a shame that our elected representatives even have to introduce a bill like this, you would think enforcing the law on lawbreakers would be a no-brainer?

But when we have politicians like Kevin Kamenetz who care more about illegal aliens than they do about Maryland citizens it demands that we take action.

(Share this meme on Facebook — click here)
It was announced that on May 1st these new proposals will be introduced at the Baltimore County Council meeting.

Maryland Campaign for Liberty will be there to deliver your petitions to your County Council member so that they know we DEMAND action from them on fighting Kevin Kamenetz’s “sanctuary” order.

Please share our petition with everyone you know so that Maryland DOES NOT become a “sanctuary state.”

Click here for the link to our petition.

We have defeated efforts to make Howard County a “sanctuary county” and just recently sunk efforts in the Maryland General Assembly to make Maryland a “sanctuary state.”

Your work thus far has lead politicians like Alan Kittleman, who was shocked at the outpouring of opposition to the Howard County “sanctuary” bill, to say:

“I have not seen this type of response to legislation in my career.”

But if we don’t double down here in Baltimore County I’m afraid the Open Borders Lobby will have a foothold to build from across Maryland.

In fact, if we don’t act in Baltimore County, they’ll have a rallying cry to re-introduce their bill to make Maryland a “sanctuary state” in the 2018 General Assembly.

I don’t want that to happen and I don’t think you do either.

Let’s act now while we still have time to fight for all Marylanders here in Baltimore County.

Here’s what you can do:

>>> Share our petition with friends and family, especially if they live in the Baltimore area.  The petition link is here.

>>> Chip in to our Protect Baltimore County from Kamenetz Fund.  We are committing to fighting Kamenetz’s terrible “sanctuary” order until he starts listening to the people he was elected to serve.

>>> Plan to attend the Baltimore County Council meeting happening May 1st.  The address for the meeting is 400 Washington Avenue, Towson, MD 21204.

>>> Volunteer for Maryland Campaign for Liberty.  If you would like to help with door knocking or writing or envelope stuffing — let us know!

For liberty,

Bob Willick
State Coordinator
Maryland Campaign for Liberty

P.S. Huge news was announced this week when three Baltimore County Council members committed to introducing proposals on May 1st to uphold the rule of law in Baltimore County.

It’s up to us to prepare and mobilize our friends and family to fight Kamenetz’s bad “sanctuary” order and support new legislation to UNTIE the hands of Baltimore County law enforcement when it comes to illegal aliens and undocumented criminals.

HELP STOP SANCTUARY STATES/ CITIES & SAVE U.S. TAXPAYER $$$ From PAYING FOR ILLEGAL ALIEN HEALTHCARE & WELFARE—PUSH CCN’s MOST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO STOP MASS IMMIGRATION

Sanctuary States (e.g. California) and Cities encourage Illegal Alien Criminals to come to those States and Cities and to continue their Predations on the Citizens there.   In 2015 alone, ICE freed 19,373 Criminal Aliens and 1347 Domestic Abusers, most of whom are still preying on the Citizens of Sanctuary Cities and States (ICE and vDare.com).

Under “new management,” ICE is trying to detain and deport illegal alien criminals but, in the last week of March, 2017, alone, 47 ICE Detainer Requests were Denied by Sanctuary Cities!  The flow continues!

Both Illegal Aliens and Legal Immigrants get access to  Welfare and Taxpayer funded Education and Health care, which only encourages Great numbers of Legal and Illegal Immigrants to come and to stay.  Over 50% of all Legal Immigrants are on some Welfare Program (Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing, etc.)  and over 90% of ostensible “Refugees” participate as well.

Incredibly, the Trump State Department just INCREASED the number of Ostensible Refugees being resettled in the USA to 900/week!

And it is also truly incredible that Open Borders advocate House Speaker Paul Ryan included provisions in his ObamaCare Lite Bill which would allow Illegals to get “free” Healthcare Coverage. And that was a Major Reason the GOP Freedom Caucus derailed that Bill.

But Speaker Ryan has not given up pushing to include Illegal Alien Healthcare in the new Healthcare Bill. And even more incredibly both he and Open Borders advocate Sen. John McCain (R-Az) are trying to DEFUND Pres. Trump’s Border Wall! (Of course, Speaker Ryan has a Wall around his house in his District!)

Ryan has suggested he will lead the Republicans to delay The Wall funding debate until September, when Congress takes up spending bills looking ahead to fiscal 2018.  “The big chunk of money for the wall, really, is … next fiscal year’s appropriations (!!! -Ed), because they literally can’t start construction even this quickly,” he told CBS This Morning recently.

In fact, Congress critters who oppose the wall are actually supporters of an open borders non-country.

Illegal aliens cost State and communities Billions annually, and the mainly low-skilled one and one-half million legal immigrants coming annually cost even more.

Indeed, the USA is being overwhelmed by legal Mass Immigration of over 1.5 Million per year plus hundreds of thousands of Illegal Aliens.

In addition, billions of US$ are sent to relatives back in Mexico/Guatemala/Nicaragua, etc. via Remittances. That is money that should be circulating through the US economy.   By taxing these Remittances and imposing a Reciprocal Tax on imports, of course, Mexico could pay for the wall.

America cannot become the “charity ward” for the world’s desperate people. We cannot degrade our citizens in order to care for the World’s poor. We cannot save Africa’s refugees when we suffer 13 million American children living in poverty. We cannot pay for immigrants’ food, housing and education when the national debt is $20 trillion and climbing.

Additional problems are US unemployment and underemployment.  As robotics replace human labor, these difficulties will worsen even without adding to the labor force through immigration. By deporting illegal aliens and imposing a zero-net Moratorium on legal Immigration, remaining jobs become available   to American citizens. It’s time to change the ‘good ole boy’ network of corruption in .DC where the Cheap Labor and Ethnic Power Lobbyists reign supreme. Otherwise, it will all get worse until we collapse into a multicultural-diversity nightmare of overpopulation, poverty for the majority, and social chaos.

“Diversity within a nation destroys unity and leads to civil wars,” said ecologist Garret Hardin RIP. “Immigration, a benefit during the youth of a nation, can act as a disease in its mature state. Too much internal diversity in large nations has led to violence and disintegration. We are now in the process of destabilizing our own country. The magic words of destabilizers are ‘diversity’ and ‘multiculturalism’.”  Indeed, Cultural Marxism—which has become mainstream and Sharia law illustrate the destabilization and disintegration of the society.

Diversity, Multiculturalism and a Culture cut loose from its moorings,  not to mention lawbreaking, are exactly what Sanctuary States and Cities foster.

CCN’s SOLUTION!

Fortunately CCN has a Solution which will work if we all push it hard enough.  We must stop Mass Illegal Immigration and Stop Mass Legal Immigration by pushing a zero-net Moratorium.

Crucially important to note is that most of the monetary cost and many of the crimes in both Europe and the USA are committed by Legal Immigrants.  Therefore, in light of the fact that the Trump Administration is, with our encouragement, likely to be reasonably successful in greatly reducing Illegal Immigration by building a wall, stopping Catch and Release, and defunding Sanctuary Cities, OUR FOCUS SHOULD BE MAINLY ON REDUCING LEGAL IMMIGRATION.

Indeed, “Merit-Based” legal immigration (President Trump’s criterion) should not be the sole Criterion for genuine Immigration Reform. Quantity is critically important as well. This is why pushing for a Zero-Net Moratorium on legal immigration—as only CCN and its ASAP Coalition Allies do—is so important.

And the Culture of incoming Immigrants matters.  De Facto Sharia jurisdiction enclaves are springing up across the USA.  Just ask the long-time residents of Dearborn, Michigan just what that means for women’s rights and public safety.

Bottom line:  the Mass Immigration of  some 1.5 Legal Immigrants per year depresses wages and causes the loss of Americans’ Jobs and is also a substantial multi-billion $$ annual net cost (over 50% of all Legals and over 90% of all “Refugees” receive one or more welfare benefits.  (See generally, E. Rubenstein vDare.com).

Sanctuary Cities alone cost American Taxpayers $14 BILLION annually nationally, with over $1 Billion each going to California and Texas (former Congressman Tom Tancredo, Breitbart.com 1/30/17).

But Mass LEGAL Immigration also causes loss of Social and Cultural Cohesion. That is, Mass Multicultural Immigration drives Social Disintegration, inter-Group Tension, Conflict, and in its worst Manifestations MULTICULTURAL CRIME and Chaos.

Therefore, it is IMPERATIVE TO DRAMATICALLY REDUCE LEGAL IMMIGRATION in addition to reversing colonization of our country by illegal aliens.

Here is how to help do that:

Ask your Representatives to enact Mandatory eVerify, outlaw Birth-Citizenship and Birth Tourism, and to Cosponsor the RAISE Act (S354—Cotton [R-AR]) (and a companion bill in the House) which would end chain migration and the Diversity Lottery AND ABOVE ALL SPONSOR AN AMENDMENT WHICH WOULD IMPOSE A ZERO-NET MORATORIUM ON ALL LEGAL IMMIGRATION.

ONLY CCN and its ASAP! Coalition Allies have The Most Effective Strategy for substantially reducing Legal Immigration as well as exposing and combating the Cultural Marxists (see CCN’s February, 2010 posting) and the various social policies, like Mass Immigration, they push.

Join CCN and its Activist ASAP Coalition! Allies in simultaneously pushing a Zero-Net Moratorium and the other Victory Initiative positions because they provide maximum ongoing Political Pressure to get our borders protected and Mass Immigration reduced NOW!  So please help us with a Tax-Deductible Donation TODAY so we can intensify our efforts NOW. The Next Few Weeks are Crucial!

Advocating a Zero-Net Moratorium is Essential for delegitimizing the whole justification for Mass Immigration! And the election of Donald Trump as President provides the opportunity—and it may well be our LAST OPPORTUNITY—to succeed in reversing the most destructive trends if we all intensify our efforts NOW.

Merely pushing for “Immigration Reform” as certain of the Mass Immigration Management Groups do or, Worse, pushing merely for “Reducing Legal Immigration to 500,000 per year” or using numbers alone as sole criteria for admission are all COUNTERPRODUCTIVE. They send the message that Mass Immigration is OK if we just reduce it a little bit AND turn a blind eye to the Cultural Impact and Personal Safety impacts. A continuation of Mass Immigration from diverse, and often anti-Western, cultures is clearly NOT OK! Look at Europe!

And the outdated Jordan Commission recommendation that Legal Immigration be reduced by half is even WORSE because it sends the Message that Mass Immigration IS in the National Interest! One half of 1.5 Million Legal Immigrants is still 750,000 annually! Ann Coulter is correct—anything less than a Zero-Net Moratorium on Legal Immigration will consign the America we have known to Oblivion.

Is it not, therefore, True that any Organization which refuses to Push a Moratorium on Legal as a First Priority and refuses to consider Cultural Impacts, is NOT really Serious about stopping the Mass Immigration Tsunami?  Let us say it plainly, refusing to push for a Zero-Net Moratorium and preservation of Western Culture as the First Priorities amounts to giving permission for the continuing Immigration Tidal Wave and National Deconstruction!

Pushing a Moratorium maximizes our clout to ensure our borders are protected and maximizes the chances of achieving reductions in legal and illegal immigration.

So PLEASE ACT NOW, and please also make a tax-deductible Donation to CCN NOW, so we can intensify our initiatives by mobilizing thousands of our activists to push our Victory Initiative! We probably have only a few months to generate support for substantial reductions.

CCN’s Strategy is The One which Maximizes both our ‘Clout for the Buck’ and the probability of Success!

In order to succeed in the next few weeks, we need your Tax-deductible Donation NOW to Maximize our Clout.

Daily Caller – EXCLUSIVE: Sanctuary City Activists Urge Officials To Ignore Illegals’ Gang, Terror Ties

Sanctuary city advocates are advising local officials across the country to ignore evidence in government databases linking illegal immigrants to vicious criminal gangs or terrorist groups, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

The advice is included in a 72-page step-by-step manual on thwarting federal immigration laws and regulations. The manual was published in March by the New York-based Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a left-wing tax-exempt political advocacy group.

The “toolkit” in the Protecting Immigrant Communities manual urges city and county officials across the country to adopt CPD’s “model legislation” or similar ordinances designed to weaken federal efforts to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.

Its “model legislation” seeks to protect illegal immigrants who are linked to gang activity or ties to terrorism, saying “the (proposed) ordinance should not exclude people with criminal convictions, or people who appear in law enforcement databases that attempt to track gang activity and terrorism.”

Montgomery County Maryland – Voter Fraud Discovered – Judicial Watch

Sorry I am late on the posting.  Meeting has already taken place, but the findings are still listed.  However, as I have mentioned before, Maryland’s Sanctuary counties are fraught with voter fraud.

Call to Action: From the bombshell story, that was released last week from Judicial Watch on their findings of the voter roll irregularities in Montgomery County. We need to make our voices and concerns heard loud and clear today at the Montgomery County Board of Elections meeting today that we demand action, and these findings
are unacceptable.

When: Today Monday, April 24th 2:30 PM
Where: Montgomery County Board of Elections Address: 18753 N Frederick Ave #210, Gaithersburg, MD 20879 Phone: (240) 777-8500

#MCGOP2018 #EndOnePartyRule #EndVoterFraud

________________________________________________________

For Immediate Release:

Rockville: Per Judicial Watch, a non-profit based in DC working towards free and fair elections across our country, there are “more people registered to vote in Montgomery County than there are citizens of legal voting age, based upon the latest U.S. Census data.”  Judicial Watch is reporting that the excess voter names are of those who have died or moved, or of non-citizens who have illegally registered to vote.

Jim Shalleck, President of the Montgomery County Board of Elections said: “Voter fraud is totally unacceptable. These allegations will be very carefully reviewed and investigated. ”

The MCYRs call on The Maryland Governor’s Office, Maryland Board of Elections Chairman David J. McManus, Jr., and Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh to take action, and get voter rolls cleaned up in our County and State.

Help Save Maryland – Maryland State Delegate Marice Morales – Failed Trust Act Sponsor Still Promoting Illegal Alien Fantasy

Bad enough that the citizens of Montgomery County Maryland have to tolerate living in a Sanctuary community because of our elected County Executive and County Council officials.  Illegal Alien Day Laborer Work Centers, Overcrowded Schools, Hospitals verging on Bankruptcy, In-State College Tuition, and more. All at great expense to the taxpayers. These enlightened leaders are also the main reason Montgomery County has one of the largest contingents of MS-13 Hispanic gang members (most from El Salvador) in the country living in our neighborhoods with impunity from the law.

Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger, against his better judgment, has put more police resources toward MONITORING MS-13 criminal activities (36 detectives), his detectives waiting in the shadows to arrest criminals AFTER the crimes have taken place.  Chief Manger still refuses to work with Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to empty our streets of these illegal alien thugs before they have a chance to rape, rob, push drugs and prostitution, and murder.

Earlier this month, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Attorney General Jeff Sessions were sounding the alarm about MS-13 and other Hispanic gangs from south of the border.  The Washington Times reported:

Mr. Kelly was laying out his early-tenure priorities in a speech at George Washington University, while across town, Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered a similar message to his organized crime council, saying criminal gangs such as MS-13 “represent one of the gravest threats to our American safety.”

“If you are a gang member, we will find you. We will devastate your networks. We will starve your revenue sources, deplete your ranks and seize your profits,” Mr. Sessions said. “We will not concede a single block or a street corner to your vicious tactics.”

Mr. Sessions and Mr. Kelly were describing criminal syndicates that reach from Latin America deep into U.S. communities.

Smuggling cartels in Mexico control an increasing portion of illegal drug trafficking into the U.S., while more traditional street gangs such as MS-13 span most of the country and count more than 10,000 members.

http://eheadlines.com/homeland-security-chief-smuggling-cartels-are-now-a-major-threat-to-the-fabric-of-american-society/

I wonder if Police Chief Tom Manger was given this article to read about MS-13 and federal activities underway to eliminate this Hispanic gang problem??

You can contact the chief at  MCPDChief@montgomerycountymd.gov   to find out.

Unfortunately, the Sanctuary supporting politicians are breeding and expanding beyond the Montgomery County into the Maryland legislature in Annapolis.  The latest “rising star” happens to represent my legislative district in Montgomery County.  Lucky me. 

Hand picked because she is a Latina in a sea of mostly liberal white males, Marice Morales brings a special blend of venom and hate to our society and culture.  Take a minute to read Marice’s end of legislative session newsletter:

http://www.maricemorales.com/annapolis2017

My favorite sections are the “Protecting Our Children” and “Protecting Diverse Communities”.  So that is what she calls her lawless, contemptible actions and views. 

Protecting Our Children

“Sexual assault in our schools has been at the forefront of national and local news recently. In Montgomery County, there were 287 rapes in FY 2016. Studies have shown that rapists tend to be repeat offenders. These troubling facts led me to fight strongly for Montgomery County – Family Life and Human Sexuality Curriculum – Affirmative Consent MD 14-17 (HB365), which will teach affirmative consent in sexual education classes in Montgomery County High Schools. If we educate our youth on the importance of mutual respect and seeking consent before pursuing a sexual act, we can reduce the number of rapists in the future. Unfortunately, the Senate did not allow this bill to pass even after hours of debate and compromise within the committee”. 

According to Marice, had the unenlightened Maryland Senate passed her wondrous bill on “don’t just rape, get consent first”, there would be a lot less rapes in Montgomery County (287 in 2016).  I think Marice also believes that the gang rape of the 14 year old girl by two DACA ready Hispanic illegal alien creeps at Rockville High School would not have happened because they would have actually asked for consent.  Recall that these two “New Americans” did ask for consent, but the young girl did not speak Spanish nor did they really understand English.  So they went about their business of striping, raping and sodomizing this young girl in the Boy’s bathroom.  Marice still refuses to recognize this vicious act and that her Sanctuary state lawlessness agenda allowed it happen.   

“I was also a proud cosponsor of Public Schools – Suspensions and Expulsions (HB425), which prohibits the use of school suspension to discipline students from pre-kindergarten through second grade. Black and Latino students are suspended and expelled at a rate over three times greater than white students. If the problem of excessive suspensions continues, the pathway to a college education will become narrower for our children of color”. 

Who knew that the white students were underachieving when it comes to school suspensions compared to the Black and Latino kids.  No worries, Marice fixed the problem.  Now all the unruly kids no matter their color, can disrupt class together. Never would have guessed that pre-kindergarten through second grade suspensions were actually holding back children of color from college.  I would have guessed MS-13 membership or just being an illegal would have nixed college.  Thank you Marice! 

Protecting Diverse Communities

“I was proud champion of the Maryland Trust Act (HB1362) this session. The bill does NOT make Maryland a so-called “sanctuary state.” The bill was worked on by a bipartisan workgroup in the House judiciary committee to prohibit the use of local resources to enforce federal immigration law. With provisions outlawing interrogations about someone’s nationality, immigration status, or religion, the bill aimed to protect Marylanders from racial profiling.  The bill also prohibits the state from participating in or implementing any kind of religious-based registry. Third, the bill would have required a judicial warrant for prolonged detention – past what state law requires – in accordance with the Fourth Amendment in an effort to protect the constitutional rights of all Marylanders. The true intent of this bill is to foster community trust of local law enforcement, so that immigrants with or without status feel comfortable reporting crimes and assisting in investigations. A recent Washington Post poll found that almost 75 percent of Marylanders agree that immigration enforcement is the responsibility of the federal government, not our local police”.   

Poor Marice, her main bill was terminated by the will of the law abiding citizens of Maryland saying NO to lawlessness and illegal immigration.  No Sanctuary in Maryland.  Again, who knew that Marice was trying to protect me from “racial profiling” through this so-called Trust Act.  And from a “religious-based registry” too.  God Bless Marice for looking out for illegal aliens and radical Islamic terrorists in Maryland.  Can’t have enough Trust between Maryland law enforcement and illegal aliens.  Who cares about the rights and safety of us Maryland citizens anyway?

You can thank Marice Morales for her service to Maryland and the illegal alien community at Marice.Morales@house.state.md.us 

PS – Marice chickened out of a debate on the so-called Trust Act against Help Save Maryland on the Kojo Nnamdi Show (WAMU). 

PSS – One of the lawyers defending the illegal alien Rockville high school rapists said “I don’t think this case would even be in the situation it’s in if wasn’t for the politics”.  Yikes!

Seems that ICE deportation officers in Washington area have 10,000 cases person!   What a great job.  You could do this job blindfolded and still be a success.

The New Civil War

sultanknish.blogspot.com/2017/04/the-new-civil-war.html   Daniel Greenfield

A civil war has begun.

This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.

It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning. 

It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.

It was for Obama defying the orders of Federal judges, no matter how well grounded in existing law, and it is for Federal judges overriding any order by Trump on any grounds whatsoever. It was for Obama penalizing whistleblowers, but now undermining the government from within has become “patriotic”.

There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them. But when government officials refuse the orders of the duly elected government because their allegiance is to an ideology whose agenda is in conflict with the President and Congress, that’s not activism, protest, politics or civil disobedience; it’s treason.

After losing Congress, the left consolidated its authority in the White House. After losing the White House, the left shifted its center of authority to Federal judges and unelected government officials. Each defeat led the radicalized Democrats to relocate from more democratic to less democratic institutions.

This isn’t just hypocrisy. That’s a common political sin. Hypocrites maneuver within the system. The left has no allegiance to the system. It accepts no laws other than those dictated by its ideology.

Democrats have become radicalized by the left. This doesn’t just mean that they pursue all sorts of bad policies. It means that their first and foremost allegiance is to an ideology, not the Constitution, not our country or our system of government. All of those are only to be used as vehicles for their ideology.

That’s why compromise has become impossible.

Our system of government was designed to allow different groups to negotiate their differences. But those differences were supposed to be based around finding shared interests. The most profound of these shared interests was that of a common country based around certain civilizational values. The left has replaced these Founding ideas with radically different notions and principles. It has rejected the primary importance of the country. As a result it shares little in the way of interests or values.

Instead it has retreated to cultural urban and suburban enclaves where it has centralized tremendous amounts of power while disregarding the interests and values of most of the country. If it considers them at all, it is convinced that they will shortly disappear to be replaced by compliant immigrants and college indoctrinated leftists who will form a permanent demographic majority for its agenda.

But it couldn’t wait that long because it is animated by the conviction that enforcing its ideas is urgent and inevitable. And so it turned what had been a hidden transition into an open break.

In the hidden transition, its authority figures had hijacked the law and every political office they held to pursue their ideological agenda. The left had used its vast cultural power to manufacture a consensus that was slowly transitioning the country from American values to its values and agendas. The right had proven largely impotent in the face of a program which corrupted and subverted from within.

The left was enormously successful in this regard. It was so successful that it lost all sense of proportion and decided to be open about its views and to launch a political power struggle after losing an election.

The Democrats were no longer being slowly injected with leftist ideology. Instead the left openly took over and demanded allegiance to open borders, identity politics and environmental fanaticism. The exodus of voters wiped out the Democrats across much of what the left deemed flyover country.

The left responded to democratic defeats by retreating deeper into undemocratic institutions, whether it was the bureaucracy or the corporate media, while doubling down on its political radicalism. It is now openly defying the outcome of a national election using a coalition of bureaucrats, corporations, unelected officials, celebrities and reporters that are based out of its cultural and political enclaves.

It has responded to a lost election by constructing sanctuary cities and states thereby turning a cultural and ideological secession into a legal secession. But while secessionists want to be left alone authoritarians want everyone to follow their laws. The left is an authoritarian movement that wants total compliance with its dictates with severe punishments for those who disobey.

The left describes its actions as principled. But more accurately they are ideological. Officials at various levels of government have rejected the authority of the President of the United States, of Congress and of the Constitution because those are at odds with their radical ideology. Judges have cloaked this rejection in law. Mayors and governors are not even pretending that their actions are lawful.

The choices of this civil war are painfully clear.

We can have a system of government based around the Constitution with democratically elected representatives. Or we can have one based on the ideological principles of the left in which all laws and processes, including elections and the Constitution, are fig leaves for enforcing social justice.

But we cannot have both.

Some civil wars happen when a political conflict can’t be resolved at the political level. The really bad ones happen when an irresolvable political conflict combines with an irresolvable cultural conflict.

That is what we have now.

The left has made it clear that it will not accept the lawful authority of our system of government. It will not accept the outcome of elections. It will not accept these things because they are at odds with its ideology and because they represent the will of large portions of the country whom they despise.

The question is what comes next.

The last time around growing tensions began to explode in violent confrontations between extremists on both sides. These extremists were lauded by moderates who mainstreamed their views. The first Republican president was elected and rejected. The political tensions led to conflict and then civil war.

The left doesn’t believe in secession. It’s an authoritarian political movement that has lost democratic authority. There is now a political power struggle underway between the democratically elected officials and the undemocratic machinery of government aided by a handful of judges and local elected officials.

What this really means is that there are two competing governments; the legal government and a treasonous anti-government of the left. If this political conflict progresses, agencies and individuals at every level of government will be asked to demonstrate their allegiance to these two competing governments. And that can swiftly and explosively transform into an actual civil war.

There is no sign that the left understands or is troubled by the implications of the conflict it has initiated. And there are few signs that Democrats properly understand the dangerous road that the radical left is drawing them toward. The left assumes that the winners of a democratic election will back down rather than stand on their authority. It is unprepared for the possibility that democracy won’t die in darkness.

Civil wars end when one side is forced to accept the authority of the other. The left expects everyone to accept its ideological authority. Conservatives expect the left to accept Constitutional authority. The conflict is still political and cultural. It’s being fought in the media and within the government. But if neither side backs down, then it will go beyond words as both sides give contradictory orders.

The left is a treasonous movement. The Democrats became a treasonous organization when they fell under the sway of a movement that rejects our system of government, its laws and its elections. Now their treason is coming to a head. They are engaged in a struggle for power against the government. That’s not protest. It’s not activism. The old treason of the sixties has come of age. A civil war has begun.

This is a primal conflict between a totalitarian system and a democratic system. Its outcome will determine whether we will be a free nation or a nation of slaves.
