Hillary Clinton and Anthony Fauci both made statements over the Thanksgiving weekend that demonstrate (once again) how pompous, proud, and out of touch our "leaders" in Washington really are.
During an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Clinton described the American people as gullible and "vulnerable" to "demagoguery and disinformation."
Thanks to this "vulnerability," Americans haven't been able to appreciate the amazing accomplishments of the Biden administration, according to Clinton.
“You know, a lot of people got, oh, I think kind of frustrated looking at the messy process of legislation, and they — they didn’t really appreciate that within a year, the Biden administration has passed two major pieces of legislation through both the House and the Senate. They passed another major piece through the House that will soon be in the Senate,” Clinton said. “By any measure, those are extraordinary accomplishments, and they really will help many millions of Americans with health care and prescription drug prices as well as climate change and so much else.”
“But because of the way we are getting our information today and because of the lack of gatekeepers and people who have a historic perspective, who can help us understand what we are seeing, there is a real vulnerability in the electorate to the kind of demagoguery and disinformation that, unfortunately, the other side is really good at exploiting,” she claimed.
Fauci isn't any better. He's demonstrated his hubris throughout this pandemic, and over the weekend he doubled down.
During an interview on Face the Nation, Fauci claimed that he "represents" science.
"They're really criticizing science because I represent science. That's dangerous," he said.
The absolute hubris of someone claiming THEY represent science. It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity. https://t.co/rcDezphVRR— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) November 28, 2021
Unfortunately, Clinton and Fauci aren't alone in Washington. The federal government is filled to overflowing with people who believe the know better than you. They think they're smarter, more educated, and more virtuous, and they want the power to control each and every decision you make.
That's why it's so important we call a Convention of States to build a firewall against government overreach. If they could, these bureaucrats and politicians would seize power tomorrow. Only our constitutional system is standing in their way, but that system needs to be restored to its former strength.
The Supreme Court has weakened the checks against government overreach, but a Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that undo the damage the courts have done. These amendments can limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government and put the people and the states back in charge.
Once these amendments are ratified by 38 states post-convention, Washington won't have the power to control our daily lives. They'll be limited to a narrow set of topics and issues, and you can bet those issues won't include healthcare, education, the environment, and a host of other issues Washington has no right to control.
