The Supreme Court in June of this year ruled that the President doesn’t have the authority to forgive student loans, only Congress, with COTUS stating that all spending bills originate in the house, does.

Yesterday, another 813,000 people got letters in the mail, telling them that their student loans have been forgiven. To date, 3.6 million borrowers will have had $127 billion in student loan debt wiped out since Biden took office. The government isn’t even ensuring that the people borrowing the money are being truthful on their applications.

This President is simply ignoring the Supreme Court while his supporters are calling those supporting his opponents “fascists.” So what is fascism? The communists on the left have redefined it to mean a mass political movement that emphasizes extreme nationalism, militarism, and the supremacy of both the nation and the single, powerful leader over the individual citizen.

However, the guy who invented fascism, Benito Mussolini, had this to say:

Fascism entirely agrees with Mr. Maynard Keynes, despite the latter’s prominent position as a Liberal. In fact, Mr. Keynes’ excellent little book, The End of Laissez-Faire (l926) might, so far as it goes, serve as a useful introduction to fascist economics. There is scarcely anything to object to in it and there is much to applaud.”

Consider some of the components of fascist economics: central planning, heavy state subsidies, protectionism (high tariffs), steep levels of nationalization, rampant cronyism, large deficits, high government spending, bank and industry bailouts, overlapping bureaucracy, massive social welfare programs, crushing national debt, bouts of inflation and “a highly regulated, multiclass, integrated national economic structure.”

Tell me if this doesn’t describe the Democrat platform…

But instead, the left claims that they are a liberal democracy that supports individual rights, competitive elections, and political dissent, even while they cheat at elections, suppress dissent by deplatforming anyone who disagrees with them, and tosses their political opponents in prison.

The left claims that Trump and his supporters are fascists because they advocate for the overthrow of the existing system of government and the persecution of political enemies, even as they openly advocate for the same.

But now we have an Executive that simply ignores rulings of the Supreme Court when he finds it convenient to do so, and he is doing it because a Harvard Professor told him to back in June:

The central tenet of the solution that we recommend—Popular Constitutionalism—is that courts do not exercise exclusive authority over constitutional meaning. In practice, a President who disagrees with a court’s interpretation of the Constitution should offer and then follow an alternative interpretation. If voters disagree with the President’s interpretation, they can express their views at the ballot box. 

How can they express their feelings at the ballot box, when the ballot box is no longer a representation of the will of the people?

There is a simple Constitutional remedy: Articles of Impeachment, followed by federal prosecution.

Fat chance. That only worked when we had an actual republic, rather than one of the banana variety.

When you make peaceful revolution impossible, you make violent revolution inevitable.” – JFK

Mussolini agrees that Keynes-liberals are cousins to Mussolini-fascists. The true political spectrum is the degree of concentration of political power away from individuals and to rulers. Nazism/Fascism/Socialism/Communism are as similar as the sects of Christianity. Yes they differ, yes they fight each other to be on top, no they are not that different in their core beliefs or behavior.

I found Putin’s stance on this pretty funny.
Especially since CNN ran it.
I guess they’re trying to make him out to be the bad guy because it looks like he agrees that Trump is being persecuted or something.

How many armored divisions does the Supreme Court command? That’s how much the ruling Junta cares about their words on paper.

    How many armored divisions? I donno. Look at how many armed federal agencies there are. Even the Department of Education has armed agents. Then there’s the military, local police, etc…

    Sure, some of them won’t enforce unconstitutional bullshit…but when was the last time a cop *didn’t* write tickets for speed or grass being too high? Everybody does horrible shit to pay their mortgage and taxes.

Alternate option: states begin invoking sanctuary status against any federal mandates.

$451 billion to house and EBT replacements, forgiven student loan debt by imperial decree, I think we’re going to need a bigger printing press and Weimar Wheelbarrow.
Just got the daily laugh from some NPR type page claiming that Andrew Jackson is up there as the original imperial executive for his let them enforce it quote but no mention of Abe Lincoln and of course it sings the praises of Chicago Jesus by claiming he dindu nuffins compared to these ole whiteys.
Brandon inherited the “historic” pen and phone from the immaculate one even if it is a crayon and Fisher-Price phone.

Isn’t this what’s happening at the local and state level? The left didnt need to change the laws-where they couldn’t-they put DAs, AGs, etc in place who selectively enforce the law. Soft on criminals, heavy on conservatives and normal people trying to live decent lives.

When the rot in the federal government is great enough, they can ignore the SCOTUS…who’s going to hold them accountable? If they cheat enough to keep conservative politicians from getting elected they won’t fear oversight. They’ll do whatever they want.

Wait till they get the tax bill. Yes you heard right, they have to report that as income. They don’t advertise that part of the equation though. Uncle Sam always gets his pound of flesh. Karma can be a bitch.
