EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT: When Joe Biden Declared War On Half the Country

The National Pulse ran an excerpt of my new book The Sumter Gambit: How the Left Is Trying to Foment A Civil War, which you can order here.

On September 1, 2022, in a nationally televised address, the nominal president of the United States, Joe Biden, declared war on half the country.

In a dark, threatening speech before an ominous red-and-black background and flanked by two Marines in full dress uniform, Biden declared that “Donald Trump and the MAGA [Make America Great Again] Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” For the first time in American history, a president declared that his primary political opposition was outside the bounds of acceptable political discourse. The message couldn’t have been clearer: The establishment Left, entrenched in power in the United States but deeply afraid of losing that power, was intent on criminalizing political opposition. Dissent from Biden’s agenda and you could end up with the thought police breaking down your door at four a.m.

Probably more out of historical illiteracy than historical awareness, Biden’s handlers chose the 83rd anniversary of Hitler’s invasion of Poland and the beginning of World War II for Biden’s profoundly disturbing and un-American speech.

“As I stand here tonight,” Biden declared in front of his ersatz Nazi background, “equality and democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise.” Biden said equality and democracy were under assault, and then he proceeded to assault them. He said he intended to “speak as plainly as I can to the nation about the threats we face,” but he wasn’t referring to China, or Russia, or North Korea, or the Islamic State and al-Qaeda, and certainly not to the woke America haters who infest our public schools, colleges, and universities. No, Biden’s big threat to the nation was Americans who dared to vote against him and reject his policies. Biden came closer to calling for war upon American citizens than any president since Jefferson Davis.

“Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal,” Biden complained. “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” He immediately drew a distinction between them and the “good” Republicans: “Now, I want to be very clear…up front: Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology. I know because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans. But there is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”

The point Biden was making was clear: The Republicans who played ball with the globalist, socialist Democrats and allowed them to implement their agenda with just a few quibbles here and there — Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Adam Kinzinger, and all the rest — were the “good” Republicans. A “good” Republican was one who acted and spoke and voted just like a Democrat, but who had an “R” behind his name. A “bad” Republican was one who offered an actual alternative to the “America Last,” bug-eating, open-borders, Third World socialism that Joe and his henchmen were forcing upon us.

After making this frankly authoritarian statement, the corrupt senescent liar in the White House had the unspeakable audacity to add: “But I’m an American president—not the president of red America or blue America, but of all America.”

No, that was exactly what he wasn’t, not any longer, if he ever was. He effectively resigned from that position with that September 1, 2022, speech. He was not the president of Americans who wanted to see a strong, independent, self-sufficient America and a president who put America and its citizens first. He was at war with those Americans, and only God knew what was coming next.

“MAGA Republicans have made their choice,” Biden declared. “They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies.” This was the “accuse your enemy of what you’re doing” strategy to a T. He went on to claim that the MAGA Republicans refuse to accept the results of free elections (not a word, of course, about the increasing evidence not only of election fraud but of FBI interference in the 2020 election, and all manner of oddities in the 2022 elections), and, with more of his trademark breathtaking dishonesty and audacity, proclaimed that political violence was unacceptable under any circumstances. Not a word about Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, and all the others who cheered on the Left’s political violence in the summer of 2020. This wasn’t really about democracy and the rule of law at all. It was about criminalizing the legitimate political opposition, something that no previous president had ever dared to do.

There is more. Read the rest here.
