In the last couple of weeks, we have seen a political vendetta enacted to suppress anyone speaking in opposition to the radical Left. Openly subverting the Constitution, Democrats have outsourced the violating of people’s rights to their corporate allies. Not only is this unAmerican, but it flies in the face of everything this country stands for. So we must ask ourselves, is this how we want our society to operate? Do the despotic actions we are witnessing strengthen and unify our country?
The United States was founded on the belief that every individual is bestowed with certain universal rights that cannot be taken away. The Constitution also recognizes that every individual retains their rights at birth and throughout life. Safeguarding those rights is what has set our country apart and why so many have risked their lives trying to get here. Yet, some have taken to a misguided path of changing our country’s foundation to fit their extremist agenda. Our rights are being trampled on before our eyes, and people need to wake up.

In an age where corporations control many essential utilities crucial to an everyday existence within society, the Left has capitalized on this relationship to impose their will on the people. Under the guise of protecting the country against domestic terrorism, we are witnessing what can only be described as a Fascist stranglehold on many segments of society. Regardless of political affiliation, our country is in trouble, and the far Left is enacting a tyrannical vendetta against their political and ideological opponents without concern for future consequences. After many social media sites purged political opposition, the powers in control have decided to abandon the 4th amendment and invade people’s bank information without justification.
The Right to Financial Privacy Act of 1978 protects personal financial records’ confidentiality by creating a statutory Fourth Amendment protection for bank records. The Act was essentially a reaction to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1976 ruling in the United States v. Miller, where the Court found that bank customers had no legal right to privacy in financial information held by financial institutions. 425 U.S. 435 (1976). Generally, the RFPA requires that federal government agencies provide individuals with notice and an opportunity to object before a bank or other specified institution can disclose personal financial information to a federal government agency, often for law enforcement purposes
- the customer authorizes access;
- there is an appropriate administrative subpoena or summons;
- there is a qualified search warrant;
- there is an appropriate judicial subpoena; or
- there is an appropriate written request from an authorized government authority.
The Pentagon has called a complete military stand-down within the next 60 days to purge so-called white nationalists from the military. The military is conducting explicit loyalty tests to ensure that only those with allegiance to the Democrat party are in power positions. With everything in Washington DC barricaded and thousands of troops patrolling, we are witnessing an occupation. This is an attempt to purge anyone that doesn’t think like them from every facet of government and society. What’s happening right now is a dystopian nightmare reminiscent of a coup d’état.
The United States of America was not designed to be a winner-take-all system where a 50-percent-plus-one majority calls all the shots and rolls over the rights of the minority. We cannot always get what we want — and that is a useful and vitally important feature of the system built upon our Constitution. But this simple concept of protecting all rights infuriates the Left, so they have formulated a strategy to destroy ideological opposition from every power structure in our society. At this moment in time, we need to put our political affiliations aside and recognize that we are Americans first, and safeguard this country before it’s too late.
