Joe Biden is now in the process of assuming the office of President of the United States without the outgoing President’s view of “making America great again.”
Yet he has a moral obligation to “make America democratic again”. This is all the more true as his party is the “Democratic Party” unless it is euphemistically “Democratic”. In this case, further reading of this article is useless.
Both traditional parties in the US have expired and it is up to the American people and their President to meticulously protect their Constitution in the long process of a peaceful, restoration democracy. It is not easy, believe me, as all the behavioral statements made by the old American rulers, starting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, suggest the opposite.
The bottom line, however, is that the restoration of democracy in America rests in the hands of a president who must prove that he is not only a loyal Democrat to the party, but also a true Democrat.
President Biden has two most pressing issues to resolve, one before and one immediately after January 20 when he is officially sworn in.
Pelosi plans to bring a new impeachment order into the house, aiming to remove Trump from the presidency days before his term ends, replacing him with Vice President Mike Pence. And if he refuses, replace Trump with yourself, as set out in the U.S. Constitution. Then you grant Trump and his family a presidential pardon thinking that the problem will be over, the pardoned ex-president will be politically neutralized forever, and the Trump establishment, heavily shackled by the “bucolic” Trump establishment, will become a happy one again Family.
However, the Pelosi plan is unlikely to work that way because if Trump is indicted and removed, it is unlikely that he will be able to accept the pardon. In this case someone has to order his arrest and I don’t see who will take the initiative to start another civil war. Hence, Trump will be free and, although charged, rule America from Mar-a-Lago in parallel with the White House.
That possibility will turn the American dream of democracy into a Democratic nightmare.
As a result, in an attempt to minimize harm, Pelosi should find an excuse to resign given her age, while President-elect Biden will take advantage of a smooth succession at the White House and seek to reunite the American people.
The reunification of the American people will be the last political act of his career, and it will be remembered. He doesn’t have much time, however, as his early retirement appears to have already been orchestrated and the final piece in the puzzle is missing. The resignation of elected Vice President Kamala Harris and her replacement by Hillary Clinton. The recipe worked perfectly for the first time in 1974. At that point, President Richard Nixon was ousted on charges of the Watergate scandal and replaced by Gerald Ford, who was named vice president a few days before Nixon’s ousting and after the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew.
In these circumstances, the President-elect’s first task, before officially taking on his official duties, is to tame his 81-year-old Speaker of the House and send her home to rest, as the House of Representatives is a “Res Publica”, not a ” Thermopolium “.
The new president’s other first assignment was to pay homage to American democracy by defending freedom of speech, which Twitter grotesquely violated after it banned Trump for life. Democrats certainly disagree with what Trump is saying, but real Democrats, despite their differences of opinion, must fight for Trump’s right to freedom of expression. This is not my conviction, but that of the great political philosopher Voltaire.
By asking the United States Attorney General to reach out to the Justice Department Twitter and its executives to participate in an attempted coup against the United States Democratic government that is a crime and constitutes treason, Biden will help restore democracy in his country. He will also “scrutinize” Trump politically by showing an unprecedented magnanimity that is a must for the leader of the Western world.
Twitter’s attack on Trump is a very convenient excuse, however, as half of Americans hate Trump and in their excitement they neither paid attention to what Twitter did nor bothered to wonder why it was done and what might follow.
Twitter is not alone in this project. It is supported by all the social media giants who would like to take power in the world. Before the Internet and for nearly a century, real political power in the Western world rested entirely in the hands of a few print newspaper publishers – no more than a dozen titles that had a presence around the world.
Millions of newspapers were sold every day and a small number of publishers dictated the political agenda without resistance or objection. The ability to destroy a politician’s reputation with a “character assassination” practice in no time was enough for the western world to be dominated by these newspaper moguls. Needless to say, radio and television have never had much of an impact on the political order, as their focus has always been on entertainment rather than political influence.
The impact on Tittles was very little for a simple reason. Distribution. The distribution of the newspapers to the final points of sale was carried out exclusively by a few distribution agencies controlled by the large publishers who strictly controlled the distribution of the newspapers.
This limited number of publishers, along with the few distribution agencies they controlled, were unionized under a trade association that had two purposes: to keep the market closed to any newcomer, and to set newspaper prices, commission levels, and other retailer terms and conditions. The club’s headquarters, called Distripress, were deliberately located in Switzerland, where the European Commission was not empowered to investigate competition law violations, and everyone was happy.
With the arrival of the Internet, news spreading suddenly became free for everyone, and political power gradually returned to the hands of politicians. Twitter’s attempt to silence Trump is the first step in bringing political power back into the hands of a few billionaires, this time instead of newspaper owners and social media owners.
In this context, the next step is to limit the spread of news on the internet if social media owners secure their right to exercise content censorship according to their rules.
Freedom of expression is the democratic right of free people, and the law is very clear and sufficient to prevent abuse. Should President-elect Biden make the private’s right to censor politicians official, that will be the final nail in the coffin of American democracy.
