Rule of Politics or Rule of Law?

What we see unfolding in Washington, DC verges on a constitutional crisis. Nothing less.

An entrenched political establishment is attempting to overturn the results of a U.S. presidential election. In doing so, they attempt to destroy a duly elected President of the United States because they disapprove of his conservative politics and his course manner. More importantly, the establishment senses an existential threat to its own privilege and entitlement, a threat in the form of a true outsider in the White House.

The DC establishment employs hyper-politicized agencies and authorities of the bureaucratic state — e.g. FBI, Justice Department, Office of Special Counsel — relying on the phalanx of a Liberal Media Complex to help promulgate their offensive.

As for the millions of voters who elected Mr. Trump in November 2016, the DC establishment is, in essence, telling these voters … We implored you not to support Donald Trump, to vote for Hillary Clinton or not vote at all. But you didn’t listen to us. Now you will see that what you want, and voted for, is ultimately irrelevant. 

The politically favored, such as Hillary Clinton, are given a pass; while political opponents, such as Michael Flynn, are publicly skewered, roasted and left with their lives in tatters. It harkens to the historic days of Empire, when Roman elites who failed to back a favored choice for Emperor could expect to have their property seized and their lives threatened, if not literally taken.

When all is politicized … all credibility is lost. And America becomes a nation dominated less by the Rule of Law than by the Rule of Politics.
