The Real Threat to Democracy is NOT Donald Trump


It seems that daily we hear from President Biden, Democrats, and the media, that if Donald Trump is elected president, our democracy will die.  This baseless fearmongering will most certainly ramp up in the days to come as America draws closer to the presidential election on November 5th, 2024.

The real attack on democracy began with the election of Barack Obama – the most intentionally divisive and anti-American president in history. It really ramped up with the later selection of Joe Biden to continue Obama’s desire to transform the country into a socialist utopia.

Was a short-lived unorganized riot on January 6th, 2021 in Washington D.C. an attack on Democracy?  No.  Democracy was never in danger that day.  Watch the unedited films – the one the Democrats don’t want people to see.  January 6th just became gleeful fodder for the left and media – a ginned-up gift that seems to keep on giving.  How about examining the White House’s response to that riot?

Remember the 10-foot-high borders of chain link fence, with concertina wire on top surrounding the Capitol after the 6th?  The National Guard patrolling the perimeter of the “people’s house?”  The people’s house is the United States Capitol.    Why the militarized fortress?  Don’t forget, this was not a temporary measure in fear of another riot.  Walling off the Capitol- THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE – to the American people lasted until March of 2021!  The optics were frightening and simply put in place to show the people just how powerful our “elected” leaders have become.  And how ironic that the Democrats wanted to protect borders for once!  Leading into the next point….

Open Borders.  A country without borders is not a country.  Millions of illegal aliens have come into the United States since Biden intentionally halted many of the tools that President Trump left in place to control the border.  Policies (like “Remain in Mexico”, in which migrants had to remain in Mexico pending any court dates in the United States for asylum hearings) were very successful in limiting border crossings.

Trump had crossings down to a manageable trickle of what they are now.  Biden and Co. did away with Trump’s policies and directives almost immediately.  They even developed a “phone app” for illegals to use to make it easier to enter the country!  Now, Joe Biden is the Commander in Chief.  He is charged with the task of protecting the citizens of the United States by defending and upholding the U.S. Constitution.

Shouldn’t Biden be tried for treason for dereliction of duty?  He is allowing people, many with evil intent, and the deadly drug Fentanyl to come across the border unchecked. By the millions.

The state of Texas, overrun with illegals, took matters into its own hands to control its border.  Guess what happened? Biden and Co. are now going after the governor of Texas with a lawsuit to cease and desist from protecting their border! And what is so revealing is that all the so-called “Sanctuary Cities” (always headed by Democratic leaders) that welcome illegals with open arms are now a bit overwhelmed by so many coming to their cities.

However, rather than focus on the real problem – open borders – the Sanctuary Cities simply cry out for more taxpayer dollars to help with the illegal alien crush.  Why does the left always think more money is the answer to their self-created problems?  The root cause needs to be addressed – finish the border wall and re-institute Trump’s successful policies to save our country!

One example of tyrannical rule (the opposite of a democracy) includes silencing one’s opposition.  This is the type of activity that is common in communist or socialist countries but is going on right now in the United States.  The media work together with those in power (and whose ideology they agree with), to not allow the people to hear any opposing views or different opinions from what they deem to be appropriate.

For example, after the Iowa Caucuses were over with a Trump win, it was shocking to listen to Rachel Maddow on MSNBC stating that they were no longer going to give an unfiltered, live platform to President Trump.  They would not carry his victory speech.  Maddow stated: “It is not out of spite, it is not a decision that we relish, it is a decision that we regularly revisit. And, honestly, earnestly, it is not an easy decision. But there is a cost to us, as a news organization of knowingly broadcasting untrue things.”

Maddow’s statement should be a cause for grave concern and a red flag for every patriotic American. The left is openly admitting that they are going to filter information!    They will only be telling you what they want you to know.  In a free world, this is terrifying. Big Brother – the media – is defining what is truth and what you should believe.  If you speak out in opposition and think differently, beware of what can happen to you.  Yet, the left has the gall to call Trump “Hitler” when everything they themselves are doing is Hitleresque.

As the cartoon character, Pogo once stated: “We have found the enemy, and he is us.”

The Democratic Party itself IS the real danger to Democracy.   Not Donald Trump.

Amy Hemmer
Hello WRN readers! I am very honored to have been chosen to write for Wisconsin Right Now. Years ago I penned a conservative column called "It's Hemmer Time" for the now-defunct Lake Country Reporter. I also like to keep The Waukesha Freeman busy with my frequent "Letters to the Editor." Writing has always been a passion of mine and I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to an excellent news source like Wisconsin Right Now. A brief background of yours truly: I graduated from UW-Madison in 1982 with a degree in Graphic Arts. I loved my time in Madison and was actually very liberal upon graduation. However, after working in the real world, I soon grew up, got smart, and became very conservative. VERY conservative. I have been happily married for 38 year and have three great adult children, as well as an assortment of furry friends. My hobbies include, but are not limited to, politics, jigsaw puzzles, target shooting, volleyball, cooking, biking, reading, and - of course - writing. I am also currently serving my third term as an elected school board official of the Arrowhead Union High School. Prior to Arrowhead, I served two terms as a school board member for the Merton School District. Being a school board member in today's political climate has been very challenging, but at the same time very rewarding. More to come on that topic! At my age, I feel many of my past, present, and future experiences and observations will make for an interesting read. I am very frightened for our country right now, like a majority of Americans. The old mantra of "Make America Great Again," has been discarded and stomped on by Biden & Co. for too long. It IS time to take our country back, and in my own small way I hope,via my words, to contribute to that cause. This column represents her own personal opinions and not the school board or this publication.
