“The prospect of two separate Americas living side by side yet different is where we find ourselves”
As I write, the country doesn’t know who the next President will be. The entertainment-media complex has pronounced that former Vice President Joe Biden is the winner, and he’s publicly celebrating the title “President-Elect.”
Of course, Mr. Biden is no such thing.
Not one state has yet canvassed and certified its election results. And the fifty states, not the news media cabal, determine who won or lost.
There are very narrow margins in every battleground state, except for Wisconsin, and the counting continues. Most every state except these battleground states had their results within hours. But, as they say, there are ‘inconsistencies’ in major Democratic-run cities located in the half-dozen battleground states that are still counting a week after the election. And, curiously, only these states shutdown their vote counting on election night, which many veterans of national campaigns going back decades have rarely encountered. (The historical record of the Kennedy-Nixon race being stolen in Chicago and the Texas Valley in the wee hours gives pause still.) But that’s another article.
However, we already know that whoever ends up with a certified electoral victory from the fifty state legislatures will be the President of a divided country. The reality is that this election was not about President Trump or Joe Biden. It’s about how two different nations can co-exist and live side-by-side, or if that is even possible.
The so-called President-Elect has been busily trying to project, with the media’s slavish support, that he’ll be a “healing” agent, a “President for all Americans.” The prior week, of course, he was labeling President Trump and his supports as “Nazis” (does anyone in the Democrat party even know what that word means?) and “racists,” “homophobes,” and “terrible people.”
But, as President Trump has already discovered, there is no such thing as unity in a divided land. For four straight years, beginning with the coup designed in President Obama’s Oval Office in a January 8, 2017 meeting, for which we now have the notes, President Trump has been under relentless assault with lies, smears, fake dossiers, and impeachment, none of which was proved valid, but all of which was calculated to diminish his capacity to run the government.
The division of America into two countries has been an ongoing process, like a cell dividing itself into two new cells. As in nature, the division originates for different purposes and reasons, some clear and others not so obvious.
One clear reason we have a divided nation is that a foreign virus, not unlike the coronavirus, has been attacking the American body for one hundred years through the coordinated “Gramsci’s long march.” It is a Marxist strategy for taking down the Judeo-Christian formation and its precepts through the internal corruption of religious, media, political, and educational institutions.
This group of Americans openly espouse – and are very clear about – the revolution for worldwide socialism and totalitarianism. Their virulent contagion has been enormously successful, taking a massive toll on the nation’s health by wrecking civic virtue and the rule of law.
Another reason is less understandable. I’ve written before about arriving in Washington with the Reagan “revolution,” and discovering that many of the elected legislators of both parties, their staffs, officials in the permanent government, and even a fair number of the appointees in the new administration itself, had no intention of advancing the actual policies that got Ronald Reagan elected. In fact, they threw monkey wrenches into the machinery of state in every way possible.
It became abundantly clear that the only thing many Washington insiders were interested in was getting or maintaining power and its promise of wealth and influence. They didn’t – and still don’t – care about the whole body. The passing decades have only worsened the problem.
Initially, I scratched my head about the motivation for this. Eventually, I concluded that many of the people who populate the high reaches of government, politics, corporate America, corporate media and entertainment, academia, and even many religious institutions are not on America’s side. They reject, and here I generalize, of course, American exceptionalism and yet maintain a perverted form of pious zeal by which they atone for their rejection of America by diminishing America. Having abandoned the Judeo-Christian God-centered ethos and faith, they still must find ways to fill the void in their hearts.
(Perhaps this explains the deification and fanaticism attached to concepts such as “climate change” and racial and sexual identity, turning them from policy and social conceptions into belief systems from which there must be no public dissent.)
Still, others don’t believe in constitutional self-government other than as a sound bite. They believe the “great unwashed” are too stupid for such a task. These are folks who skipped across the pond of life like a rock. Their connection with America is primarily a mailing address, not a way of life.
For the most part, they don’t live, work, or have any understanding of the country at large, because they were, and are, so insulated from everyday Americans. They went from one bubble to another without touching the overwhelming percentage of working Americans’ everyday lives.
Professor Angelo Codevilla aptly named this new group of Americans the “ruling class” in his trailblazing writing on this phenomenon in 2010.
The ruling class is mostly the product of a process, Dr. Codevilla contends, which has homogenized much of the American elite. They come increasingly from affluent families that live around each other, send their children to the same schools where they hear and absorb the same ideas. Then they are sent off to elite colleges together where those same ideas get affirmed. Very few go into the military. They go to the same events together, vacation together, and party together. They help each other climb the rungs on the ruling class ladder.
The prospect of two separate Americas living side by side yet different is where we find ourselves. The cellular division process drove the election of Ronald Reagan, and a generation later, Donald J. Trump. In effect, they were revolts against the elites and the ruling class, and nothing is changed by this election.
We are assaulted by calls for unity (in fairness, from President Trump as well), yet the truth is that unity implies commonality. But what commonality remains in 50-50 America?
In prior generations, unity centered on the Founding and its promise of personal freedom and liberty. That standard for commonality has evaporated. Today’s concept of unity suggests that it comes by “coming together” and ending the “divisive rhetoric,” though a process that diminishes the Bill of Rights to a list of suggestions. That has been demonstrated in the last month by how the monopolistic big tech platforms administer “free thought and free speech,” especially in the incredible China-Biden money laundering scandal.
In the weeks to come, we will have a President, but that doesn’t solve the profound issues raised in 50-50 America: Can the Constitutional government survive, and with it with the essential articles of personal freedom of speech, religion, association, and the rule of justice. Can the Constitution be set aside by a vote, and can those same personal freedoms be set aside by the courts or the big tech oligarchs? Must America bow to the world order and submit to an international elite?
If you believe as I do that the Divine Hand shaped our nation for a special purpose, then there has been no more critical time in the last 160 years where we must appeal to His mercy, not His justice.
