Abuses of Power: The Far Left is Losing, But They Wont Go Down Without A Fight
Written and Narrated by Ethan Hay
This week, HR/HS-1 (1) was dealt a crushing blow in the United States Senate. Republican senators used the filibuster to block the bill, thus killing it before it could be voted on by an evenly split senate. This angered Democrats, who are actively seeking to abolish the filibuster (2), thus allowing horrendous legislation, the likes of HR/HS-1, to be passed by a simple majority vote.
The far left also suffered a major defeat in the New York City mayoral democratic primary. The early results show former police officer, businessman, state senator, and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams (3) leading the field by nearly ten points. (4) Adams ran on a platform dedicated to fighting crime (5) , and restoring order to the city. Now, there are still votes to count, especially as NYC uses ranked-choice voting (6) for the first time. But it is unlikely that AOC endorsed leftist lawyer Maya Wiley, (7) or former NYC Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia, (8) will be able to overcome Adams significant lead, but now NYC must wait and see.

There are also the various state audits, both current and potential, that are taking place in Arizona, and across the country. Especially in Georgia, where new evidence and reports of counting ballots twice, misplacement of ballots, (10) chain of custody issues, (11) and even a twenty-nine page report by an election monitor outlining a variety of issues. Meanwhile, Arizona’s Maricopa (12) county paper audit is coming to a close, and the canvassing is about to begin.
Furthermore, Critical Race Theory has been taking a beating. Parents of all backgrounds, races, and faiths, are stepping up, especially in Loudon County, Virginia, (13) and are seeking to hold tyrannical school boards accountable, by preventing the implementation of a racist curriculum. But sadly, it has also seeped into the US military, as was seen with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, (14) who clashed with Rep. Matt Gaetz about CRT.
However, the Democrats are always planning and thinking ahead. Which is where HR-4 comes in. HR-4, (15) is officially called the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. What is so concerning about this particular legislation is written in the legislation itself:
“(D) OBJECTION BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL—The Attorney General has interposed an objection under section 3(c) or section 5 (and the objection has not been overturned by a final judgment of a court or withdrawn by the Attorney General), and thereby prevented a voting qualification or prerequisite to voting or standard, practice, or procedure with respect to voting from being enforced anywhere within the State or subdivision.”
This bill essentially would grant the federal government the authority to intervene in either a state or local if there’s any complaints of discrimination, thus subverting the power of states even further.
Meanwhile in New York, former New York city Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is the attorney for President Trump, and who also investigated the election fraud that took place during the 2020 presidential election, has had his law license suspended (16). The verdict was passed down by the New York State Supreme Court (17) using his claims regarding the election as the reason for his suspension saying:
“We conclude that there is uncontroverted evidence that respondent communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at reelection in 2020. These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client. We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law, pending further proceedings before the Attorney Grievance Committee (sometimes AGC or Committee).”
Regarding the situation in Georgia, the federal Department of Justice (18) has filed a lawsuit against said state. The reasoning for the lawsuit is that Georgia’s recent voter laws (19), are discriminatory against black Americans. However, both the Marshmallow Republican Governor Kemp, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, have vowed to fight back against this lawsuit.
The leftists are now also trying to reframe the negative perception that has grown as a result of the grassroot (20) movement that has come about as a result of parents organizing. For example, look at this headline from a Slate (21) article: The Problem Isn’t That Some Republicans Don’t Know What “Critical Race Theory” Is. It’s That Many of Them Do. The article then tries to present the ‘not-yet-in-local-schools,’ curriculum as an honest attempt to examine the racism that is ‘systemic.’
The bad news is daunting, yes, but the American people must take pride in the little victories that are achieved. For it is on those little victories, that greater things come to pass, and we can save our country. Let the immortal words of American hero, Captain James Lawrence, of the USS Chesapeake, during the War of 1812, be the battle cry of American Patriots; “Don’t give up the ship.” (22)
