Biggs: Omar Wants To ‘Destroy’ The Very Gov. That Gave Her Safety, Success



andy biggs and ilhan omar

America is the most remarkable country in the history of the world. How else can you describe the astonishing nation that has a system of government and economics that has allowed more people to attain prosperity and personal freedom than anywhere else…ever?

Think of it this way. Can you imagine any other country in the world that would welcome a refugee from one of the most troubled spots on the planet, Mogadishu, Somalia, and give that refugee the same opportunities of every citizen of that country?

With those opportunities available, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-MN, was able to run for and win office in the highest legislative body in the nation, Congress!

And, indeed, that body is actually the highest legislative body in the world because it governs the most powerful, the freest, and most prosperous country on the planet.

What a great country.

But, that isn’t where our national greatness ends. American exceptionalism is evidenced in the fact Omar, who now sits in the United States Congress, can demonstrate such a lack of gratitude, such a lack of humility, and such a lack of understanding of the nation she helps govern, that she can make outrageous calls to terminate the very government that provided her the opportunity for safety and success.

While sitting in the United States Congress, she advocates burning down the entire economic, social, and government systems that have allowed her to rise to a position of prominence in our nation. She seems to hate the very nation that she and her family petitioned for salvation as they were in peril in her native home.

One thing that marks America’s greatness, a place that people are striving to enter, is that someone so ungrateful can make such hateful statements without concern that her anti-American rhetoric will be censored by the government. She can attack the very system she has used without the fear of arrest. 

That’s remarkable stuff. 

She can worship as she pleases. She can run for political office. She can associate with whom she chooses. She can own weapons, were that her preference. She can avail herself of every right recognized in the Bill of Rights.

And, she can demonstrate an incredible lack of understanding of American history, a lack of understanding of economics, and an incredible lack of respect of this nation that provided refuge to her in her hour of need.

And, with a vile screed, she can condemn this nation, advocate for Marxian causes, and still hold her position in Congress. Even though she took an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Omar’s advocacy to tear down our system seems to indicate a willingness to forego her obligations under the oath of office she took. 

The greatness of America lies in the fact that the voters of her congressional district get to decide if they are willing to reelect someone who wants to destroy our system of government. 

Our American exceptionalism is evidenced in that it is the United States Congress that gets to determine whether she should be disciplined for advocating the demise of our system, and whether she has violated her oath of office.

Our people and elected officials make the decision on discipline and not some secret police force.

And, moreover, our system of government always comes back to the base of political power in America, the American people. There is no inherent power in political office in this country. Elected officials have received authority, which has been delegated to them by the people under the charters of government. 

And, the fact that a member of Congress hubristically wants to ignore, and even destroy our system of government, should give all of us concern.

At the same time, however, it should also remind us what a truly great country we live in. And, motivate us to defeat her dangerous and radical ideas. We must always defend this remarkable nation, this America.

Biden Administration Proposes Rule to Fortify Federal Bureaucracy Against Republican Presidency



Joe Biden

In a strategic move, the Biden administration has unveiled a proposed rule aimed at reinforcing the left-leaning federal bureaucracy, potentially hindering future conservative policy implementations by Republican presidents. This move has raised concerns about the efficacy of democratic elections when a deep-seated bureaucracy remains largely unchanged, regardless of electoral outcomes.

Key points of the situation include:

Presidential Appointees vs. Career Bureaucrats: Of the 2.2 million federal civil workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The vast majority, made up of career bureaucrats, continue in their roles from one administration to the next. This continuity is facilitated by rules that make it exceedingly difficult to discipline or replace them, resulting in a bureaucracy that tends to lean left politically.

Union Political Affiliation: A striking 95% of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates support Democrats, according to Open Secrets, with only 5% favoring Republicans. This significant political skew among federal workers raises questions about the potential for political bias in the execution of government policies.

Obstructionism and Challenges for GOP Presidents: Some career bureaucrats have been accused of obstructing Republican presidents’ agendas, leading to policy delays and challenges. For example, during the Trump administration, career lawyers in the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division declined to challenge Yale University’s discrimination against Asian American applicants, prompting Trump to seek legal counsel from other divisions. The case was subsequently dropped when Joe Biden took office.

Biden’s Countermeasures: President Biden has taken steps to protect the bureaucracy’s status quo. In October 2020, Trump issued an executive order aiming to reclassify federal workers who make policy as at-will employees, but Biden canceled it upon taking office.

Proposed Rule and Congressional Actions: The rule unveiled by the Biden administration seeks to further impede a president’s ability to reinstate Trump’s order. Additionally, some Democrats in Congress are pushing to eliminate the president’s authority to reclassify jobs entirely. This has been referred to as an attempt to “Trump-proof the federal workforce.”

Republican Candidates’ Pledge: GOP candidates such as President Donald J Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis have pledged to address this issue. According to reports from Fox News, Ramaswamy has gone further, advocating for the elimination of half or more of civil service positions, emphasizing the need for accountability.

Debate on the Merit of the Civil Service: While Democrats and their media allies argue that civil service protects merit over patronage, critics contend that the system has evolved into a form of job security for federal workers with minimal accountability. Federal employees often receive higher salaries and more substantial benefits than their private-sector counterparts.

In summary, the Biden administration’s proposed rule and broader actions to protect the federal bureaucracy have sparked a debate over the role of career bureaucrats in shaping government policy.

Republican candidates are vowing to address these concerns, highlighting the need for accountability and ensuring that government agencies work in alignment with the elected president’s agenda. This ongoing debate raises important questions about the relationship between the bureaucracy and the democratic process in the United States.
