Holding Republicans Accountable
Barry MacDonald — Editorial
President Trump has been given too little credit for his tireless efforts in making the United States the good and great nation it is capable of being. He has been tarred by slanderous press coverage throughout his presidency. The Democratic Party and the bureaucracy of Washington, D.C., have been fanatically hostile from his inauguration day, mounting a years-long bogus investigation, founded on a fabricated Russian collusion narrative and a fanciful charge of abuse of power concerning Ukraine, which culminated in his impeachment.
Unfortunately, what has also become apparent during the Trump presidency is the timidity and reluctance of elected Republicans both in Washington, D.C., and throughout the country, to defend the rule of law, constitutional principles, and now voter integrity and fair elections.
It was a great disappointment during the first two years of President Trump’s term that the Republican leadership in the House and the Senate failed to repeal and replace The Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. If the Republicans had dared to replace the bureaucratic monstrosity of health care in America, they might have been damaged politically in the short term. But once ordinary Americans would have experienced a more market-based and a patient-centered approach, the Republican Party could have earned the long-lasting respect of the American people. And the Republican Party, its officeholders as well as its loyal voters, could have relished what it feels like to be doing beneficial, worthwhile, and morale-boosting work for the good of all Americans.
There were many votes for show when Republicans controlled the Senate during the Obama presidency with Mitch McConnell leading and with John McCain supporting. Republican senators made a great pretense of opposing The Affordable Care Act. But when Mitch McConnell and John McCain had a president, Donald Trump, who had the courage to take upon himself the full weight of the maniacal vitriol of the opposition, Senators Mitch McConnell and John McCain chose to do nothing — the senators enforced the bureaucratic status quo, they demoralized their own voters, and, subsequently, the Republicans lost their majority in the House in the midterm elections.
A pattern that was apparent before President Trump won the presidency has become starkly obvious now. Too many elected Republicans in Washington, D.C., are steadfastly unwilling to oppose and stop the pay-for-play corruption of powerful government officials. The Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Foundation were used as vehicles to enrich Hillary and Bill Clinton and their cronies — this is old news. But last year the self-serving and questionable dealings between Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and the governments of Ukraine and China came to light. To prove the allegations of corruption against the Clintons and the Bidens, we needed a Republican Party with the willingness and fortitude to launch and complete investigations. Unfortunately, Republicans and Republican officials at the Justice Department and the F.B.I. were unwilling to uphold transparency, integrity, honesty, and the rule of law in the conduct of public service.
One must ask the question: Why are elected Republicans incapable of defending the compendium of their professed principles? Are they hoping to share in the largess of the tax-collected wealth that accurses to Washington, D.C.? Are they co-opted and corrupted by the allure and arrogance of power? Or are they simply overwhelmed and intimidated?
It is clear now that too many elected Republicans are turning a blind eye toward mendacious government — we don’t know why.
The Navarro Report, “The Immaculate Deception: Six Key Dimensions of Election Irregularities,” makes shocking allegations about the presidential election that resulted in Joe Biden’s “supposed” victory:
- The weight of evidence and patterns of irregularities of election fraud is worthy of investigation, and yet we hear repeated claims that there is “no evidence” of fraud.
- The number of ballots in question are more than enough to swing the outcome in favor of President Trump.
- The battleground states of Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin share a mix of the same or similar election irregularities.
- There was theft “by a thousand cuts” across these six battleground states.
- The anti-Trump media and censoring social media platforms are complicit in keeping the truth from the Americans.
- Journalists, pundits, and political leaders are participating in a “Biden Whitewash” that risks putting in power a presidency that lacks legitimacy and earned support from a large segment of the American people.
- The failure to aggressively investigate election irregularities is a failure of the mainstream media, censoring social media, and the legislative and judicial branches of government.
- Republican governors in Arizona and Georgia, and Republican majorities in both chambers of state legislatures in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, had the power and opportunity to investigate election irregularities, but under intense political pressure they have failed in upholding Constitutional duties and responsibilities.
- Both state courts and federal courts, including the Supreme Court, have refused to appropriately adjudicate election irregularities.
- If the election irregularities are not fully investigated prior to Inauguration Day, the United States runs the “very real risk of never being able to have a fair presidential election again.”
Americans who yearn for honesty, transparency, and beneficence in government are in difficult circumstances these days. The St. Croix Review will continue to publish essays that uphold the ideals of honesty, decency, and Constitutional principles.
For the welfare of the future of America, faithful Americans and Trump supporters must take upon themselves the arduous task of finding officeholders worthy of election. *
