“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies... is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” (
Carrol Quigley was a mentor of Bill Clinton. What he is saying here is identical to one of the goals of the communist party described in the book "The Naked Communist." That goal simply put, is infiltrating one or both political parties in the United States. Very few Americans would have a hard time denying that the Democrat party has been taken over by the hard left, however, a misguided faith still exists when it comes to the Republicans. Nothing demonstrates this more thoroughly than the enthusiasm surrounding the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.
The so-called patriotic right is ecstatic that they won what was seemingly a savage fight for Kavanaugh's confirmation. What happened, in reality, was a dialectical display of how much power the government, or "the deep state" as they have come to be known, has over public perception. The most frightening aspect of it all is the people on the left and the right are wholeheartedly invested in their parties perspective narrative. The left, for instance, believes that Kavanaugh is a sexual predator and the right, a constitutionalist. Neither is the truth. As demonstrated in my last article, Kavanaugh is a statist judge who had a hand in writing the patriot act and believes that illegal surveillance against Americans is consistent with the fourth amendment. The right appears to be willing to sacrifice their fourth amendment rights for privacy to watch the left have a fake meltdown.
Nothing demonstrates the reality of the above quote by Quigley better than the fact that Kavanaugh and Merrick Garland, the liberal judge nominated by Obama at the end of his term, voted identical ninety-three percent of the time. Even Ted Cruz, in an effort to calm the left noted this fact during the earlier confirmation hearings. What does this mean? It means that we just fell for a huge scam designed to get you to support a judge who, if you did the research beforehand, may not have supported. It's all a game to keep us in the dark.
Many of Trump's policies also support the notion of the quote above. The war in Syria, potential war with Iran, the new trade deal, Betsy Devos signing us on the UN Sustainable Development education agenda and others are policies that remain unchanged whether it is a Republican or Democrat in office. The power elite, understanding human behavior very well, know that all they have to do is show Donald Trump giving a speech denouncing the United Nations for example, and no one will believe that we just signed onto their agenda. That's how it works. People believe what they see and given the fact that we are an entertainment addicted nation, most people live their lives believing what the television tells them to believe. As demonstrated by the latest circus called the Kavanaugh confirmation.
The hope now is that the scheme to portray Kavanaugh as a sexual predator has backfired and will result in a huge "red wave" in the midterm elections. This could be but what difference will it really make? Particularly if the quote from the Naked Communist is true and the Republican party has been infiltrated by Rinos.
In all reality it shouldn't matter, nor should we care who is on the Supreme Court. Their job is not to make law but to uphold the Constitution, period. The fact that the nomination of a Supreme Court justice is able to gain the national attention it does is indicative of the fact that too many people give government too much legitimacy. Perhaps, in the end, Kavanaugh will prove the skeptics wrong and be an outstanding justice. As Americans however, this author believes it is our responsibility to uphold liberty and this can't be done if we just follow the dangling carrot put in front of us. We have to research things for ourselves.
