Constitution Watch: A Periodic Alert on Imminent Dangers to the Unique Reason We Are the United States
March 20, 2019 (EIRNS)—The Democrats, led by Elizabeth Warren and others are proposing that we abolish the Electoral College. This longstanding bulwark of our Republic allows representation to areas of the country other than the elite-dominated coasts, where many have fled as the result of the post-industrial devastation imposed by these very elites. Instead, the Democrats propose that we revert to pure democracy, otherwise known as rule by mob, something soundly rejected by our forefathers. They are also proposing to lower the voting age to 16 and to allow undocumented immigrants to vote. This, they believe, will prevent Donald Trump from winning the 2020 election.
The Democrats, again, are floating the idea that additional seats should be added to the Supreme Court in order to ensure equal political representation on that body. The driving force is concern that a more conservative court might act against the infanticide presently advocated by most Democratic Party candidates in the form of support for late-term abortion and/or the right of a woman and a doctor to decide to kill a child at birth.
Meanwhile, the Murdoch family and Twitter are moving to shut down President Trump’s ability to speak to the population. Fox, which recently sold many of its entertainment properties to Disney, is maintaining its Fox News channels, but under the control of younger members of the Murdoch family, specifically Lachlan Murdoch. According to multiple reports, Lachlan Murdoch insisted on hiring Clinton fraudster Donna Brazile and put former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan on the board. Last night, Brazile appeared for the first time on Sean Hannity’s broadcast. Judge Jeanine Pirro, a favorite of Trump, is currently off the network for politically incorrect comments questioning the loyalty of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Both Hannity and Tucker Carlson are said to be under pressure from the Murdochs based on their loyalty to the President. Both shows repeatedly rate higher than any competitive cable shows.
In addition, President Trump, in a statement on the White House lawn today, said that he was being shadow-banned by Twitter, his main mode of communication with the population and that something needed to be done about it. Twitter and Facebook are collaborating with the British intelligence’s Integrity Initiative and the State Department’s Strategic Communications center to censor and ban speech they deem offensive. In a parallel development, involving a different aspect of the First Amendment, former Nightline host Ted Koppel is being widely quoted today asserting that the press has lost all objectivity and is simply an instrument for war against Donald Trump.
Appearing on “60 Minutes” on March 17th, former ACLU executive Ira Glasser said that the present American Civil Liberties Union organization had become overtly partisan and no longer could be counted upon to defend the Constitution. Glasser cited the ACLU’s unquestioning support of the accusers of Brett Kavanaugh in the Congressional hearings regarding his nomination. Glasser stated that in abandoning the presumption of innocence, the ACLU had essentially come out in support of abandoning the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment due process clauses to the Constitution, which the ACLU used to defend as its central mission. Glasser joins a growing chorus of people who disagree with Donald Trump but see the destruction of the Constitution as a far, far greater danger to the United States.
