(PJ Media) – It is common knowledge that the Democrat Party is in serious trouble and looks about to hit the panic button. Both the president and the vice president are polling in freefall. The Afghanistan fiasco is not about to slip under the radar. The vaccine mandates that may be imposed unconstitutionally will issue in a storm of litigation. The Party’s economic policies would supercharge inflation. The southern border is an unprecedented disaster. The world’s most powerful military is going Woke and losing its edge.

The factional schism in the party between “moderates” and “incendiaries” has further weakened the Democrats’ legislative and fiscal coherence. Domestic violence has become a modus operandi. The president gives every indication of cognitive dysfunction, of being a political liability and a moral failure, while his VP and probable replacement has the gravity of a ping pong ball and the presence of a gesticulating marionette on fraying strings.

The signs of a Republican sweep in the 2022 congressional and gubernatorial elections and 2024 presidential election seem highly promising, galvanizing a rebooted Republican Party and the long-suffering heartland. Rick Moran at PJ Media refers to several articles anatomizing a failing president. Steve Turley (Dr. Steve!) waxes positively euphoric over the political demise of Biden and the Democrats. These are only a few of the voices weighing in on the subject of an intellectually destitute and mortally compromised president who appears to be taking his party down with him.

Too much schadenfreude too early in the game.

I don’t believe there is any reason for unalloyed confidence in a political sea-change. The Democrats will not go quietly into that good night. They are resourceful, unscrupulous, and fiercely determined to maintain their power and privilege at any cost. They have a number of tried and tested options at their disposal, including the threat of court-packing, gerrymandering of electoral districts, eliminating the filibuster, endless juridical attack via an army of law firms as in the past, the alliance with Big Tech platforms and a collusive media, and rigging of the electoral machinery. If the Mafia were to rebrand itself as a political party, it would be the Democrats. They can be expected to mobilize and deploy all their resources, however corrupt, however illegitimate, however coercive, to forestall a Republican victory at the polls.

We should make no mistake about this. The American left is on the march. David Horowitz in Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America is unsparing in his acetylene critique of the American left and the Democrats, a rats’ nest of radicals raised on identity politics and communist dogma and bent on rejecting “the traditional American framework of pluralism, civility, and compromise in favor of a revolutionary agenda…concluding that the social order had to be destroyed.”

There is no need, Horowitz points out, to redefine the character and purpose of the nation, as the fanatics, iconoclasts, and insurgents demand. “The Constitution already defines the kind of country we are.” The truth of the matter is that redefining America is what “the radical left and the Democratic Party have been doing for the last fifty years.” And they are doing it today, with a vengeance.

Lee Smith in The Permanent Coup shows how the “party of Obama” was “willing to take desperate measures to destroy Trump and undo the 2016 election” in order to complete “the transformation of America.” The party of Biden will act no differently regardless of its current travails. The Democrats will stop at nothing to demoralize the common people and stage what they hope would be a permanent coup. Smith reveals the almost unfathomable depths of corruption, betrayal, and ruthlessness of the elite political class, government agencies, the bureaucratic juggernaut, the media, the academy, the web of dark money, the judiciary, the Deep State and, of course the over-arching Democrat Party.

It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.

We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.

Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.

On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.

While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.

This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.

Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:

  • A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
  • A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
  • A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
  • A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
  • A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
  • A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
  • A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)

All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!

And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.

While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.

And now, it would seem that time has officially come.

"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.

This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."

In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."

These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.

As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.

But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.

This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.

Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Thank you!

The warning was most recently sounded in Mark Levin’s American Marxism, where he writes that “the Democratic Party wants to be the permanent singular party that dominates all control of the state and its bureaucracy.” The “actions and designs” of the Democrat Party, he writes, “are evidence of an autocratic, power-hungry, ideological movement that rejects political and traditional comity and seeks to permanently crush its opposition—and emerge as the sole political and governmental power.”

This is the agenda and it is indisputable. Now that they appear to be on the defensive, it would be folly to assume that the Democrats would be prepared to concede or falter in their efforts to prevent the return of Trump, that they would be ready to bide their time and wait for the next electoral cycle. The left will simply go into overdrive with every means and tactic at its disposal, no matter how reprehensible.

In retrospect, it appears that Trump had no clear idea of how deep the Deep State and how fetid and vast the political swamp was. We should not make the same mistake. Neither the Deep State nor the Swamp have gone away and are not about to anytime soon. There is no reason to jubilate and every reason to remain perpetually vigilant. The Republicans must be prepared to go the distance, to use every weapon in their political arsenal, to fight tooth and nail against what is nothing less than a domestic enemy force, a seditious and arguably treasonous cohort of disreputables.

The battle lines are drawn. Collaborators must be shamed and rejected outright. Republicans must be ready to cast decorum, civility, conciliation, and Robert’s Rules aside if they are to have any chance of emerging victorious in the coming elections—and, indeed, in preserving the nation.

As Dinesh S’Souza concludes his United States of Socialism, the left has successfully created two Americas. “We continue to chant that this is one America, although we know in our hearts that this is no longer the case…They want us to submit to them. They want our children. And they want the country…If we don’t fight back, they will turn America into 1984, and we will have no place to run to. What this means is that we have to contest their domination in the media, and academia, and Hollywood.” There can be no relenting. “We don’t move on until we put the perpetrators in handcuffs.”

In a sense, D’Souza is paraphrasing Churchill’s famous “We Shall Fight on the Beaches” speech. The context may be different but the urgency abides. Only the terms have changed. We shall fight in the polling stations, we shall fight in the courts, we shall fight on the Internet and in the debates and interviews, we shall fight going door to door. D’Souza is right. America is at the eleventh hour, fifty-ninth minute.

Full disclosure: I write as a Canadian who knows that his own country is irretrievably lost to the depredations of the omnivore left and who looks to America, or parts of it, as a hope against hope. Canada is gone and the people have approved. It is now a country where there is no need to rig an election to ensure a leftist government. For all our sakes, the true America must find a way to survive and flourish once again. There is no alternative.
