In case you didn’t know yet, or perhaps you suspected but maybe were reluctant to admit it, we are at war for the future of America.
The war – so far just a war of competing ideologies – is being waged by the political Left, which today has found a home in the Democratic Party. Once the party of the “little guy” and the American worker, today’s Democrats are hard-Left socialists, fascists and ideologues who use whatever means possible – legal or illegal, right or wrong, proper or improper – to win.
To the Left, losing elections, which the Democrats have lost repeatedly in the age of Barack Obama, doesn’t matter. They don’t see losses as losses, they see them as mere inconveniences that give them a reason to change strategies and tactics in order to still get what they want.

It means packing the federal courts with far-Left ideologues who use campaign rhetoric to rule against a president’s lawful right and responsibility to protect the country from terrorism.
It means taking over academia, the media, the sciences and education so they can subvert the Constitution and teach generations of young Americans that Left-wing ideology trumps governing institutions.
It means choosing which laws they want to obey and which laws they want to ignore, depending upon what helps achieve the objective: Rule by Leftists.
We’re seeing this play out with the Susan Rice scandal. No tactic is too outrageous or out-of-bounds if it means the Left wins. For Democrats, that means weaponizing federal intelligence agencies – or the IRS, the EPA, or the FCC – as simply a means to an end: Rule by Leftists.
In a recent column for Frontpage Magazine, Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, writes that we are currently engaged in a “civil war” – between “a totalitarian system” on the Left and “a democratic system” supported by constitutional conservatives whose “outcome will determine whether we will be a free nation or a nation of slaves.”
Describing Left-wing Democrats as engaged in acts that can only be described as “treason,” he writes:
There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them. But when government officials refuse the orders of the duly elected government because their allegiance is to an ideology whose agenda is in conflict with the President and Congress, that’s not activism, protest, politics or civil disobedience; it’s treason.
Perhaps as a nod toward the “Calexit” movement, Greenfield noted further that the Left doesn’t really want to secede, as states did during the first Civil War, “it wants to rule,” and it will do so by any means necessary: By circumventing the duly elected Trump government; ignoring the rule of law and statutes they disagree with; rejecting the constitutional constructs so painstakingly created and approved by the founders and the first 13 states.
“After losing Congress, the left consolidated its authority in the White House. After losing the White House, the left shifted its center of authority to Federal judges and unelected government officials. Each defeat led the radicalized Democrats to relocate from more democratic to less democratic institutions,” Greenfield writes.

“This isn’t just hypocrisy. That’s a common political sin. Hypocrites maneuver within the system. The left has no allegiance to the system. It accepts no laws other than those dictated by its ideology.”
Civil wars only end when one side is able to force the other side to accept its authority. At present, we have irresolvable political and cultural differences, and the last time that happened, nearly 700,000 Americans were killed.
The Left has hijacked the Democratic Party, and that is evident by the behavior and actions of Rice and the entire Obama administration.
At some point, all of our national turmoil will end. But be advised, the Left is ensuring that it won’t end well.
