“I’m firmly convinced in my heart that America has been and still is in the throes of a bloodless revolution, an attempt to subvert government agencies and resources to take away individual privacy, to create an unbeatable voting base, to regulate medical care, education, media coverage, gun control and authority over every aspect of life in America,” he writes.
“Had everything gone according to plan, Hillary Clinton would have been elected, all the corruption would have been buried way down deep, two more ultra-liberal rubber stamp Supreme Court Justices would have been appointed, the borders completely opened up, a method developed for giving citizenship, and therefore voting rights to undocumented immigrants and our government would have turned into a one-party monopoly, without any way to defeat it.
“Guns would have eventually been confiscated, tax cuts never passed, the military gutted, coal mining banned, domestic fracking and petroleum exploration abandoned and business killing federal restrictions put in force, entitlements would balloon, the national debt would double. Triple and eventually cause the kind of inflation we can’t even imagine,” he says.
“The American dollar would have ceased to be the official trading currency around the world and America would have to buy whatever the preferred currency would be to pay for imports, environmental groups would have finagled legislation that would make farming unprofitable, abortion mills would have become as common as fast food restaurants and religious rights would have been severely curtailed.
“Socialized medicine would have crippled the finest medical care in the world and there would have been a federal bureaucracy to regulate every facet of life and education would have been tailored to raise a generation of sheep who were taught that America is the cause of all the world’s problems and carbon credits would have driven fuel prices out of sight.”
Daniels asks: “Do you think this couldn’t happen? Best think again.”
Instead, Donald Trump was elected in 2016, despite what appears to have been plotting by opponents inside the FBI and DOJ to defeat him.
He has cut regulations, supported religious rights, put enemies on notice America is no longer a patsy and told allies to carry their share of the economic burden. Trump also has chosen judicial nominees committed to upholding the Constitution.
“Part of what I have written is theoretical, but imagine a one-party government with a lock on every foreseeable election, the aims and declarations of the parties involved and follow it to its logical conclusion,” Daniels suggested. “Scary thoughts.”
He said take away the parties and divisions, and there still are individuals who “are engaged in a power grab, the likes of which has never taken place in this nation.”
While the Founders set up a government with checks and balances, and equal treatment for all, that isn’t what’s happening now.
“When it was brought to light a couple of years ago that the Internal Revenue Service had been subverted and used against right-wing political activist groups, Congress was all a titter. Lois Lerner took the Fifth, and for all intents and purposes, that was the end of it.
“Although the Republicans control both houses of Congress, neither body has undertaken the task of digging out the rot amongst the rank and file and identifying the upper echelon who ordered it,” Daniels said.
“It is obvious that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been politicized, and the awesome power of this feared organization has been subverted. They have supported lies, used false documents to initiate a special counsel, interrupted the lives of American Patriots who gave up defending themselves because it is impossible to outlast a government agency who can use taxpayer money to keep you in court for as long as they want to.”
