That Depressing-But-True Article Everyone Is Talking About

Angelo Codevilla on why, regardless of who wins in November, America as a Constitutional Republic is over.

Over the past half century, the Reagan years notwithstanding, our ruling class’s changing preferences and habits have transformed public and private life in America. As John Marini shows in his essay, “Donald Trump and the American Crisis,” this has resulted in citizens morphing into either this class’s “stakeholders” or its subjects. And, as Publius Decius Mus argues, “America and the West” now are so firmly “on a trajectory toward something very bad” that it is no longer reasonable to hope that “all human outcomes are still possible,” by which he means restoration of the public and private practices that made the American republic. In fact, the 2016 election is sealing the United States’s transition from that republic to some kind of empire.

Electing either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump cannot change that trajectory. Because each candidate represents constituencies hostile to republicanism, each in its own way, these individuals are not what this election is about. This election is about whether the Democratic Party, the ruling class’s enforcer, will impose its tastes more strongly and arbitrarily than ever, or whether constituencies opposed to that rule will get some ill-defined chance to strike back. Regardless of the election’s outcome, the republic established by America’s Founders is probably gone. But since the Democratic Party’s constituencies differ radically from their opponents’, and since the character of imperial governance depends inherently on the emperor, the election’s result will make a big difference in our lives.

Speaking of Democrat Mohammedan Mass Murderer Omar Mateen

Back after the Orlando Disco Massacre, the Idiot Left was distributing this meme; being this stupid should hurt like a constant burning migraine, but unfortunately, it apparently feels like bliss.

Obama Administration Admits Their Omar Mateen Narrative Was Horse Crap

When Mohammedan Democrat Omar Marteen committed mass murder at a gay disco in Orlando, Florida, the Obama Administration professed to have no clue about his motives. The media were fed a line that he literally had nothing to do with ISIS, and only declared himself a jihadist when he was on the phone to police. He had no prior links to ISIS, and they even floated the idea that he was an oppressed gay man who for some reason decided to shoot up a gay disco for reasons having nothing to do with Islam or terror.

And those who have believed every other lie the Obama Administration and its media surrogates have told them embraced this lie too.

Months after the fact, it comes out, in the form of one those Friday night document drops the regime uses when they wasnt to bury a story, that Omar Mateen had been heavily invested in ISIS propaganda for a long time.

The bulk of the evidence supporting the conclusion that Mateen was motivated by his support for ISIS wasn’t revealed until last week when Orlando authorities finally made Mateen’s phone conversations with police public in transcript form. From the Wall Street Journal:

Yo, the airstrike that killed Abu Wahid a few weeks ago—That’s what triggered it, okay?” he told the police negotiator, an apparent reference in the transcript to the Islamic State commander.

Abu Wahib, whose real name is Shaker Wahib al-Fahdawi, was known as one of the group’s more Internet-savvy leaders, often appearing in propaganda videos.

Only an “avid consumer” of Islamic State propaganda would know when Abu Wahib was killed, said Seamus Hughes, the deputy director of George Washington University’s Program on Extremism.

“This isn’t somebody who decided that night he was going to wrap his personal grievances around ISIS,” Mr. Hughes said.

Obama and the Democrat-Media Complex put out what they wanted to be true (“Nothing to do with Islam or terror, it was all about teh gunnz”) and the people who wanted to believe the Narrative — though it defied all reason and common sense — lapped it up.
