Freshman GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw (Texas) took aim at Sen. Tammy Duckworth Wednesday, questioning the Illinois Democrat’s patriotism after she suggested that there should be a "national dialogue" about whether to remove statues and monuments of the founding fathers. Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, was discussing voter outreach to veterans during a Trump campaign “MAGA meetup” event on Thursday when he took a swing at Duckworth, a combat veteran who lost both her legs serving in Iraq, accusing her of supporting the “destruction of America,” The Washington Post first reported. “I think a general message that the left stands for the destruction of America

When are we going to hold public officials accountable for violating their oath of office to uphold the constitution? When you feel the need to destroy the system and start over or do not agree with the American principles of individual freedom outlined in the constitution, how can you possibly be allowed to hold public office. Your basic beliefs are not even in agreement with the oath of office.

#2, court cases decades ago basically said they didn't have to keep it. Another example of too many years asleep by the electorate as the commies infiltrated the government, including the judiciary and bureaucracy.

If you are sitting in Congress or hold a federal job, you should be held to a higher standard and be of high moral character. After all, you were elected to represent We the People. A whole bunch need to resign.

The current rage for cultural Marxism, notably its critical race theory trope that America is “systemically racist,” causes many problems for the Left and, in particular, its presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden (a.k.a., “Joey Basement”) as well as other Democratic office seekers.By arguing America is systemically racist, the Left is asserting that America was not only illegitimately founded upon slavery per the New York Times’ 1619 Project, but remains and— absent a regime change—must remain systemically racist. The Left’s proposed solution for America is a “fundamental transformation.” The specifics are hazy, but apparently it requires the imposition of socialism and/or Communism;

According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.
