Skip to comments.Charlie Daniels: America Is in the Middle of a Full-Blown Constitutional Crisis
Posted on 02/08/2018 10:19:40 AM PST by jazusamo
Its been over a year since the election that totally amazed America. To those who voted for Donald Trump it was a refreshing miracle, as the rust belt, the much-maligned coal miners, those who were tired of watching ISIS grow stronger, those who hated the fact that America had a president who refused to even identify our sworn blood enemy by its proper name, had finally had their voices heard.
The fruits of their votes are reaching fruition as the economy sizzles, their burdensome taxes have been modified, their 401Ks are prospering, new jobs and old companies return to our shores, and the violent gangs that plague the nation are being rounded up and jailed or deported.
The other side, at least the official part of it, is still staggering around in denial and disbelief trying to figure out how America could have gone for such a brash, outspoken outsider who holds no fear for Washington, nor the media they carry around in their hip pockets.
They cant accept the fact that the great unwashed had chosen this usurper over their hand-picked, well financed, forty-year veteran of the political wars. After all, it was her turn. Wasnt she endorsed by the one who could do no wrong and practically every A-list Hollywood celebrity, every establishment politician, even some with an R beside their name?
Wasnt she the darling, even the face of liberal doctrine, progressive, feminist, pro-choice, urbane, holder of prestigious degrees, ex-senator and rightful resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
How dare this glorified upstart construction, businessman from New York, who had never served in any political capacity come forth and spoil the coronation!
How could this have happened?
What could have gone so wrong? They had the money; they had the media; they had the star power. I mean, hell, they even had Oprah!
And so, the upper echelon of the Democratic Party decided that they had not done enough, that it was not what they had done, but what they had not done that had cost them the election, and they embarked on doing more, much more of the same.
They never considered the fact that they had chosen a candidate with enough baggage to bring down a 747. She was unlikable, untrustworthy and spoke to the American people like an Ivy League college professor lecturing a class, disdaining millions of them as s basket of deplorables.
Another thing is, and a most important one, after eight years of Barack Obama, the absolute idol of the media, the elitists dream, the man with the pen and the phone, who consistently cowed the milksops in Congress and regularly tested the limits of accepted doctrine, who had no fear of confronting religious organizations concerning their constitutionally protected rights, champion of any term abortion on demand, who viewed America as an unjust nation that needed a comeuppance which he was happy to start the process for the Democrats took comfort in their fawning media coverage and comforting poll numbers and conveniently forgot about the working people and flyover country.
Theyd do what they were told. No need to interrupt the celebrity-laden sound bites and appearances on the prestigious TV news shows where the hosts fell all over themselves to make their candidate appear as the savior of the nation.
No need to go to Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and all the other perennially blue states. They would fall into line; they could just be taken for granted.
After all, how could America not be ready for four more, or Im sure in their thinking, eight more years of the Obama Doctrine? Theyd elected him twice. Theyd swooned at his rallies. The media had hung on his every word and supported his undertakings, and sugar coated every failure.
The passing of the scepter was a mere formality. One night in November and it would all be over. Release the balloons; uncork the champagne.
And then along comes this, this unsophisticated city slicker, with unruly orange hair, who actually called their ideal candidate, Crooked Hillary.
He has no right to be president. Well show him.
And so it began, THE RUSSIAN FARCE, and Democrats like Adam Schiff went so far out on the limb that when, and if, it is all proven to be a hoax, he is going to have a heck of a time finding a way to get back on solid ground.
As I write this piece, it is the day after the Nunes Memo has been released, the Democrats and mainstream media are in full rebuttal mode, the Republicans insisting that theyve found if not the smoking gun at least one of the bullets.
As for me and my humble thoughts, if Trump or any of his cabinet or official associates are guilty of colluding with the Russians or any other foreign power, I want them charged and punished.
Conversely, if the Obama administration, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the FBI, the Justice Department or any other government entity, past or present is guilty of obtaining a FISA warrant under false pretenses, being instrumental in helping the Russians obtain 20 percent of our available uranium if the DNC is guilty of stacking the deck against Bernie Sanders or any other candidate, if there has been a quid pro quo policy in Hillarys State Department or Loretta Lynchs Justice Department, I also want to know about it, and I want them charged and punished.
If there is ever to be any more trust between we the people and the U.S. government, there has to be a special counsel appointed to investigate the goings-on on the Democrat side, and not some Potomac political hack, but a total outsider, whose politics are not so rigid as to make him or her partial in the undertaking.
America is in the middle of a full-blown constitutional crisis. Theres smoke on both sides of the aisle, and the fire needs to be located and every iota of scandal on either side brought out into the sunshine of public scrutiny for the people to understand and judge for themselves.
We are not serfs. We are a free people who pay the taxes that keep this government in business, and its high time for transparency. Weve had enough translucence and opaqueness, and hiding behind the wolf of national security is not acceptable any longer because no matter what they say, the pertinent part of this evidence can be presented without compromising any part of national security. Most of it is domestic, and we already know about how law enforcement goes about obtaining evidence in this country.
Besides, whatever happened to the liberal philosophy that exposing government secrets in a good cause is perfectly plausible? Remember the Pentagon Papers?
Wonder if the Washington Post will apply the same principles to the current situation as they did when they printed Daniel Ellsbergs Vietnam-era revelations.
But the truth has a strange way of coming out anyway because it is indestructible.
There are many prominent professional and political careers on the line here, but when it comes to justice, nobody is above the law. And were talking about the relationship between the people and the government of the greatest nation the world has ever known.
So, forget political parties. Level the playing field. Let a special counsel for both sides chop the log, and let the chips fall wherever they will.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
God bless America
We are not in a full blown constitutional crisis.
What we have is an abuse of all intelligence, security and justice where they were weaponized much like what Stalin would have done to suppress opposition.
Remember Trotsky? Readily banished from competition by Stalin.
Remember the people oppressed by the dictator, Stalin?
We can talk Castro. We can talk Chavez.
This abuse of the American constitution was treasonous, and as the facts come out it will be borne out that there was a soft coupe underway for well over 8 years now. Obama was a pawn in the greater game and was used to push an anti American agenda on us. Once he was in, it was pedal to the metal for their agenda.
All operatives were placed so the infrastructure could continue irrespective of the “nominal” president.
God Bless Charlie Daniels...
Big fan of Charlie Daniels.
He sounds, though, as though he thinks an honest, intelligent, fair-minded investigator could be found among the left.
Which is to say as though decency can be found among the forces of evil.
If so, it probably reflects his own basic decency, but someone should disabuse him.
Well said, you’re absolutely right.
The FBI is permeated with seditionists.
The DOJ is out of control!
The Republic is endangered!
But our Attorney General is on the job:
In Tampa Visit, Attorney General Jeff Sessions Recommends Aspirin Over Opioids For Pain Relief
On Wednesday, Sessions was in Tampa, touting the Trump administrations efforts to combat drug abuse and trafficking.
This time, he broadened his suggestion to aspirin.
"I am operating on the assumption that this country prescribes too many opioids," Sessions said. "People need to take some aspirin sometimes."
Sessions delivered a 25-minute address at the U.S. Attorneys Office in Tampa, speaking to local police and federal prosecutors about the devastating impact of opioid abuse, including heroin and its high-powered cousin, fentanyl.
The remarks followed similar statements Sessions made Tuesday night at a Heritage Foundation event marking the birthday of President Ronald Reagan.
"Sometimes you just need to take two Bufferin or something and go to bed," the magazine quoted Sessions as saying.
In 2016, there were 64,000 overdose deaths nationwide. Thats almost the entire population of Daytona Beach, Sessions noted.
practicing medicine without a license. prescribing drugs without a medical license. failure to perform his assigned duties so he can pose as a doctor. Complicit in Hillary clinton and Barack Obama remaining at large. Willifully or by default part of the deep state.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
My takeaway is the United States is in the opening phases of a civil war on mainstream America declared in secret by the progressive elite that have been running the country for the last 8 years
Their run on Trump was a domestic version of the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor by the DOJ/FBI/ CIA / Dept of State , Hillary Clinton and the Obama White House
The part about there being smoke on both sides is NOT well said at all. President Trump, his family members and several of his aides are VICTIMS of a clear silent coup that only came to light due to a small number of courageous congressmen. There is no smoke, indeed no reality to the claim that Trump collided with Russia.
The crisis is that people have committed crimes and are flaunting it. One arrest by AG on any major subject would go a long way. Too bad he has no balls.
Isnt it comforting to know that our AG is right on top of the important issues of the day? (Heavy Sarcasm)
We have an attempted coup happening in the US but, instead, he is marching lockstep with the Drug War Fascists, whining about a media manufactured Opioid Crisis.
I used to be a fan of Sessions. To say that I am deeply disillusioned is an understatement.
I didn't read that as Daniels making accusations about President Trump, his family members or anyone else.
There's many people on "the other side of the isle, are you saying no Republicans should be looked at if there's reason to?
Most coups are military, but this one seems to be a judicial coup.
Charlie, we all know that there is no Constitutional
crisis coming because it is here now. The thing for
you to do is to find words that rhyme with “constitution”
“corruption”, and “liberals” then compose suitable
Well, you and I interpreted that paragraph differently. I did not isolate it from the context of the entire article. You did.
. . . just like the overthrow of Nixon. If

A constitutional crisis would be a time when people dont know who the legitimate president is.
We know who it is, but a great deal of propaganda to the contrary has about half of the public seriously in doubt.
