Thread: Lessons from de Tocqueville in Regards to the Counterattack!

1. The past is prologue, and keen observers of America in the past such as Alexis De Tocqueville have made very astute statements that are relevant even unto today.
1A. If you don’t know who De Tocqueville was, I highly recommend you read this brief summary of his life:
history.com/topics/france/…
2. From a study he made under French commission in the early 1830's titled 'Democracy In America', Alexis De Tocqueville observed under the heading: "What Sort Of Despotism Democratic Nations Have To Fear."
3. Quote: "Above this race of men stands an immense and tutelary power, which takes upon itself alone to secure their gratifications and to watch over their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild.”
4. “It would be like the authority of a parent if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks, on the contrary, to keep them in perpetual childhood: it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing.”
5. “For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness; it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, ….”
6. “…directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances: what remains, but to spare them all the care of thinking and all the trouble of living?" Unquote.
7. Then again, these characteristics of a 'democracy' - which have been debated since the beginnings of recorded civilization - were nothing new to de Tocqueville - or our Founders, for that matter.
8. In fact, they did their best to write a Constitution aimed at avoiding precisely the pitfalls to rights and freedom about which de Tocqueville so eloquently forewarned.
9. That we have allowed devious overlords personified by the American political class to ignore their oaths of office and Constitution is how we have arrived at the ominous state of internal affairs in the American Republic today ….
9A. in which a seditious cabal has been carrying out a silent coup against the sitting president of the US for over two years now.
10. This is merely a modern repeat of the past history of man's experience with tyranny in all its forms – this time in partnership with mass media and complementary social media that (try to) propagandize and legitimize the tyranny!
11. Who could argue that a guy like senior FBI agent Peter Strzok who takes it upon himself to state that he’ll be among those who will prevent the election of Donald Trump isn’t the very definition of tyranny by an unelected bureaucracy in the federal government?
12. Thanks to @POTUS, we are learning new info about the felonious conduct – and despotism! – of the Obama Administration and the cable virtually every day. Trump is leading a return to the original American blueprint for governance of a free people. Amazingly providential!
13. And this despite fearsome resistance from virtually the entire Democrat Party (modern day manifestations of Communists), their propagandists in the legacy media, and like-minded #NeverTrump “Republicans” (in name only).
14. Not to mention supported by many fellow-travelers in academia, the bureaucracy (Deep State), and Hollywood – and many foreign elitists and globalists!
15. But the Left have been dealt a major body blow with the release of the Mueller report and @POTUS’s exoneration for “Russia collusion” and AG Barr’s letter absolving him of obstruction of justice, too. And AG Barr’s testimony before at a House hearing:
foxnews.com/politics/ag-wi…
16. AG Barr gave the worthless, despicable and grandstanding Democrats NOTHING! But he did make a few points that skewered their narrative but good:
16A. The redacted report is being released “within a week.”
16B. The redactions will be color-coded and entirely lawful: classified info, grand jury testimony, info associated with ongoing cases, and privacy-protected information of people under no legal jeopardy. Good luck getting that, Democrats (and getting sued if you do!).
16C. The OIG report on FISA abuse is coming soon, too (“in May or June”).
16D. Mueller had a chance to review the Barr summary letter but chose not to.
16E. He stated that his letter was not a “summary of the report” but rather a statement about its conclusions. Poor Democrats!
16F. Oh, and he’s looking into the FBI counter-intel investigation that was a basis from the special counsel appointment, as well as other actions by the Obama DoJ/FBI. (I bet those comments got a LOT of people sweating the load!)
17. And now, after 2+ years of being attacked 24x7, the counterattack against the cabal, their Democrat enablers in Congress and the paid legacy media is well underway.
17A. Congressman Nunes is suing Tw@tter and McClatchy. (LMFAO! That’s one way to fund a senate campaign in California. Are you feeling the heat yet, Ho Harris?)
17B. Oh, and he’s referring 8 cases to the DoJ for prosecution, including THREE related to conspiracy (potentially dozens of people involved!).
17C. Congressman Meadows is rumored to be making a few criminal referrals of his own over the next few days/weeks.

17D. Congressman Collins released damning testimony from former FBI General Counsel James Baker. The information disclosed in his testimony is quite damning and evidence of rampant corruption at the FBI. Recommend reading the entire article here:
washingtonexaminer.com/news/republica…
17E. Cleaning out the DHS leadership – multiple senior positions – is going to change things up BIGLY (ongoing despite Democrat/media caterwauling about a “purge”).
17F. Senator Graham (Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee) is going to investigate the Obama-era FBI investigations. We already have a window into the corruption; it’s going to epic!
17G. Senate Majority Leader McConnell triggered the nuclear option last week to expedite confirmation of Trump appointees.
politico.com/story/2019/04/…
17H. The Senate confirmation of federal judges continues at record pace over the teeth-grinding of the likes of ChiFi and Ho Harris. There’s a good chance that the 9th Circuit – yes, the 9th Circuit! – will lean conservative within the next year!

18. The aforementioned actions aren’t accidents, folks; they’re part of the well-coordinated counterattack now that the Mueller report turned out to be a dud. I am convinced that we are witnessing a well-choreographed play that has been in the works for months.
19. I also believe that we are at an inflection point in American history. Over the past 50+ years, the country was being marched by the political elite down the path toward globalism.
20. Their tactics were open borders (and importation of people who won’t assimilate), “free” trade (at the expense of US manufacturing jobs), secularism (and the attendant moral relativism), shackling the US economy and workers with high taxes and burdensome regulations, ….
20A. … destruction of US military readiness, endless foreign wars, abdication of US leadership on the world stage, concessions to erstwhile enemies like Iran, DPRK, overregulation in service of unproven global warming theories ….
20B. … (the latest insane manifestation being the ridiculous “New Green Deal,” massive corruption to reward key Uniparty players and their enablers/protectors in the federal bureaucracy (esp. the DoJ and FBI!), and other actions intended to destroy the US from within & without.
21. Ask the people in the Rust Belt how those policies worked out! Or those in the military trying to turn military readiness around after 8 years of terrible policies by Obama apparatchiks in DoD!
22. How clearly we see today that the election of Donald Trump was nothing if not a citizen’s revolt against this nonsense! We are witnessing the results of a reversal of Obama’s horrible legacy and also the exposure of the perfidy of the Deep State and the seditious cabal.
23. And the counterattack against the despotism and tyranny warned about by De Toqueville is going to continue apace, folks, and even accelerate in the coming months. The Left won’t know what hit them by the time it’s over.
24. @POTUS is unleashed, he’s got a plan, and he’s executing it to perfection – with more allies getting on board in Congress and elsewhere with each passing day because they know what’s coming! Even media types are starting to sense what is coming.
25. Conclusion: this is no time for complacency. Now is the time to weigh in with your congressman and senators and support the counterattack in all ways! If you’re stuck with Democrat representatives in Congress, then make them feel the heat! Complain to the legacy media, too!
26. Do we really want to go back to the likes of Obama’s and Shillary’s policies leading to De Tocqueville’s prescient remarks on despotism and tyranny after the 2020 election? Not only no, but hell no! ///The end.
