Where are cooler heads when we need them most? Do Joe Biden, fellow Democrats, and the media have any intent on “healing” and unifying” our nation? If so, not much has been shown thus far.
As Stephen L. Miller suggests in the Spectator: “Maybe this is because it’s in the best interest of the Biden agenda, and the revenue of Big Tech, and the audience retention of the corporate media to keep us as we are — a nation divided.”
In his first chance to display the sense of unity that he’d talked about so much on his way to electoral victory, Joe Biden chose to demonize the Capitol Police, running with a plotline lifted from celebrities, athletes and social media — that the cops, who were mostly helpless to stop a mob of thousands and suffered a casualty of their own, were also somehow a band of insurrectionists bent on helping the mob enter the Capitol.
From Joe Biden: “No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn’t have been treated very, very differently.”
The double negative only added to the vacuousness of the sentiment. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris echoed him, obviously.
On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released a statement to House Democrats. She spoke with General Mark Milley (Joint Chiefs of Staff) to discuss President Trump’s possession and authority of the nuclear codes.
Nancy Pelosi: “The situation of this unhinged president could not be more dangerous. We must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.”
Set aside for a moment that until Donald Trump and Mike Pence are removed from office, Nancy Pelosi has “zero power or authority within the military chain of command “issue any orders or procure any authority of her own concerning the military,” Mr. Miller reminds readers.
Instead, let’s take her statement for what it is: another dangerous escalation of events, a signal to foreign governments all over the world that any military action on their behalf be met with confusion and strife at home.
