Adam Smith, the chair of the House Armed Services Committee criticized a move by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem to deploy the National Guard to the US border and accept private donations to pay for it. Now here is the money quote:
“This is unbelievably dangerous to think that rich people can start using the U.S. military to advance their objectives, independent of what the commander in chief and the secretary of defense think they ought to be doing,”
For years, the Democrats have been bleating that the Second Amendment is only there to permit the militia to be armed, and claiming that the National Guard is the militia. Is a sitting legislator now saying that a state no longer has the right to a well regulated militia? Or is he claiming that the NG is not the militia?

To leftists, a thing is whatever they define it to be such that it is most beneficial and exploitable to their own preferred ends at a given moment in time. Said definition can and will be changed on the fly, and with no acknowledgement whatsoever of it being at odds with the previous official definition, nor quite likely next one offered in similar fashion.
There is no cogitive dissonance for the totalitarian leftist, as they are expert liars of convenience who are always and everywhere full of rotting shit. These dissembling self contradictions are a trademark of their modus operandi.
Calling them on it accomplishes nothing so long as they have the means of narrative control and distribution at their disposal. And they do indeed have that completely wrapped up. Establishing absolute, lockstep control was the primary intent of their long march through the institutions. Well, that and employing as many such garbage humans as possible in the bureaucracy. They do take care of their own, until it’s time to liquidate all the useful idiots post-revolution.
