Some helpful examples why so many Americans believe our freedom "is in peril."
By Gary Bauer
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — In his Memorial Day remarks at Arlington Cemetery, President Biden warned the crowd that, “Democracy itself is in peril – here at home and around the world.” Well! We may agree that free nations are facing growing threats around the world, but "here at home"?
I offer these helpful examples to President Biden as to why so many Americans do believe our freedom is in peril.
“Here At Home”
What really got me to thinking was the president telling us that democracy itself is in peril “here at home.” Many of us, perhaps all of us would agree there is peril to our Constitutional Republic, but not for the reasons Biden probably had in mind.
He sees danger in places like Texas – where they are trying to ensure the integrity of elections so that only legal votes are counted. On Saturday, Biden attacked the state for “targeting” Black and Brown voters.
But confidence in ending fraud in our election is key to safeguarding our Republic.
Why Our Liberty Is In Peril
Our public schools that ought to be teaching American children to love their country are teaching our sons and daughters anti-American history along with Marxist-based critical race theory certain to increase racial hatred.
Our most important intelligence agencies and federal law enforcement – filled with brave men and women whose job it is to protect us – have been compromised by leftist partisans who have “weaponized” those agencies to spy on American citizens and harassed the Trump/Pence Administration for four years.
Religious liberty is under relentless attack. Churches were forced to close during the pandemic while rioters gathered by the thousands to loot and burn American cities. The full weight of the Biden/Harris Justice Department is being brought down on Christian ministries trying to force them to accept the demands of the LGBTQ fascists.
Freedom of speech is being attacked daily by a combination of “cancel culture” warriors, big tech oligarchs who do the bidding of the far left and “woke” corporate CEOs.
The American military is under relentless assault from the progressive left. Men and women who currently serve in the ranks and are conservative, super patriotic, pro-Trump, pro-life, etc. are now facing the prospect of their communications being monitored and their careers ended.
The same Marxist “critical race theory” poison foisted on our children is now finding its way into the ranks of our warriors.
"...and Around the World”?
Our allies Japan, Australia, Taiwan, as well as many other nations are being threatened and bullied by communist China – and Biden signals only weakness in response.
The most vibrant free nation in the Middle East is Israel, but Biden is begging for a deal with Iran’s mullahs who regularly promise to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.
Ukraine’s young democracy is under severe pressure from Russian troops massed on its borders. But Biden gives the green light to a Russian gas pipeline that will make our European allies more dependent on Putin’s tender mercies.
Biden’s new budget makes massive increases in every government agency and program with two notable exceptions: the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.
The degree of Chinese communist influence into key American institutions is impossible to accurately estimate. Politicians have been compromised, U.S. corporations parrot the Chinese line and lobby for more trade deals, university campuses have accepted hundreds of millions of dollars of Chinese communist’s money, professors at major universities are being indicted for giving China U.S. technology and research... the examples go on and on.
Do any of these far-left policies or initiatives make sense if Biden believes democracy and freedom are facing grave threats?
So, yes, President Biden, clearly American liberty and our national security are in grave peril – and you are clueless or complicit in what threatens us.
