Is Biden Really the Lincoln of Our Time?

Make America Reconsider! – Share Pat’s Columns …

Is Biden truly stating that small alterations in election laws, all of which would have to pass inspection with federal courts and the Supreme Court, represent an existential risk to our republic? This is beyond embellishment. It is outrageous. It is unreasonable.

Taking A Trip to Philadelphia Tuesday, President Joe Biden set out in apocalyptic terms the gravity of the “danger” to American democracy from Republican efforts to reform and reword state election laws.

“We are dealing with the most substantial test of our democracy because the Civil War. That’s not embellishment. Given That the Civil War. The Confederates at that time never ever breached the Capitol as insurrectionists did on Jan. 6.”

Biden is welcoming a comparison of what he faces with what Abraham Lincoln faced when he took office in 1861 with 7 Southern states having voted to secede and Fort Sumter a month away.

The Republican “risk” to our democracy, indicated Biden, is mortal.

“I never ever believed in my entire career I ‘d ever have to state it. However I swore an oath to you, to God– to maintain, secure and protect the Constitution. And that’s an oath that forms a sacred trust to defend America versus all risks both foreign and domestic.

“The assault on free and reasonable elections is simply such a hazard.”

Republicans seek to reject “full and totally free and fair elections” and are engaged in “the most un-American thing that any of us can imagine, the most undemocratic, the most unpatriotic.”

Un-American? Undemocratic? Unpatriotic?

When Sen. Joseph McCarthy challenged the patriotism of Truman Democrats in such terms in the 1950s, he was censured by the Senate.

Is Biden actually stating that minor changes in election laws, all of which would need to meet with approval with federal courts and the Supreme Court, represent an existential threat to our republic?

This is beyond hyperbole. It is absurd. It is unreasonable.

Such hype is a step of simply how far out of touch with the real life the rhetoric of our reigning elites has drifted.

and Republican politician guvs as Confederates, with the stakes equal to the survival of the Union, Biden has raised the stakes of this minor political skirmish. And raised the political threat to himself, if he stops working, as is likely. Biden has actually just pushed a large stack of his political chips into the middle of the table in a program of self-confidence that he can bring off Senate passage of the For individuals Act

and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, when both pieces of legislation look

to be particular losers. Neither has the 60 votes needed for passage. Neither has a single Republican vote. Nor exists evidence either can gain the 50 Democratic votes in the Senate that would need an unanimous caucus. And if either procedure got the 50 votes required for passage,

Democrats would still require 50 votes to break a GOP filibuster. Yet, Democratic senators such as Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are opposed to abolishing the filibuster. As six-term Sen. Joe Biden seems himself. Is Biden putting on a program of defiance for the progressive wing of his party? For, again, what is at issue here so critical regarding elicit contrast with a Civil War that cost 600,000 American lives? To avoid voting legislation from being enacted into law, Texas Democrats got away from the state legislature in Austin and from Texas itself– to deny Republican politicians a quorum. And what do the liberal and progressive Texans fear? Watch the Latest Videos on Our Buchanan-Trump YouTube Playlist! 2 pieces

of legislation, states The New York Times:”Both procedures would ban 24-hour ballot and drive-through voting; forbid election officials from proactively sending absentee tally

applications to voters who had actually not requested them; include brand-new voter

identification requirements for ballot by mail; restrict the kinds of help that can be supplied to voters; and greatly expand the authority

and autonomy of partisan poll watchers.”Are such modest

propositions, all within the authorities of state government under the Constitution, genuinely a hazard to the republic as serious as the possibility of a second Civil War? Democrats are faking this, casting themselves in the familiar function of progressives fighting heroically for democracy against neo-fascist forces of the right. Declared Biden at the National Constitution Center:”The 21st-century Jim Crow

assault is real. It’s unrelenting. “Yet, with all his rhetoric putting himself in the tradition of Lincoln, and casting Republicans in the role of die-hard segregationists and vote deniers, Biden is

appealing something he nearly undoubtedly can not deliver. What lies ahead? Having raised the stakes in this fight, Biden has actually raised the cost of his most likely defeat. The probable aspects of

that defeat will be a failure to produce an unanimous Democratic Senate vote or the rejection of Democratic senators to break a Republican filibuster. Out of this will come anger at Biden among progressives for his not going public to demand suspension of the filibuster, rage at Manchin and Sinema and other Democratic senators who secretly back retention of the filibuster

, another victory for Sen. Mitch McConnell, and more lost time for the larger items on the Biden program. All the price of Joe Biden’s absurd rhetorical hype.
