Unfortunately, her lack of sinister intent, at least as it might pertain to the terrorists, was irrelevant to the ultimate harm she caused her country. More unfortunate still is the fact that, in the aftermath of the attacks, those who, along with Gorelick had left the nation vulnerable, remain focused on their own interests and thus continue to act in a manner that poses a grave danger to the country.
The ongoing saga of former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger, and the selective myopia of the “9-11 Commission” stand as grim reminders of such.
As horrendous as are these examples, a greater tragedy is that they are in no way isolated, but rather are representative of the current morally bankrupt mindset that completely dominates Washington. America, at this crucial juncture, survives not because of its day-to-day conduct, but rather as a result of the momentum that remains from past actions. Yet, as everyone should know, momentum eventually dissipates. And America’s is waning fast.
Washington is overwhelmingly, (almost universally) populated with self-serving individuals and special interests who seek their own advancement, enrichment and empowerment, with little or no consideration for the dire unintended consequences that might befall the rest of the nation. Yet, they remain largely indifferent to the harm they continue to cause, presuming that the nation will somehow recover, as it has done in the past.
Few among them really believe their own efforts will be the “straw that breaks the camel’s back,” or that they will succeed in trashing the American Constitution, abolishing constitutionally based freedom, or eradicating American sovereignty to hostile and unscrupulous entities, thus dooming their own prospects for the future.
But no nation can deny the principles on which it was built and through which it has flourished, and abandon its defenses (both internal and external) without forfeiting the very lifeblood that sustains it. A day of reckoning is coming for America. The pending immigration reform/amnesty bill represents nothing less.
Americans at the grassroots almost instinctively know that, if passed, the amnesty bill will likely push the nation past a “tipping point” from which it will never recover. Already, the ability of honorable law-enforcement officials to protect their fellow citizens is being critically compromised. Who can expect the safety and well-being of average citizens to remain unthreatened in such a climate?
On a daily basis, reports of dangerous deteriorations in the quality of the nation’s food supplies render it ever closer to resembling something one might expect from third-world countries. And the callous indifference the nation’s governing institutions to such concerns of the citizenry on this issue is itself reflective of something from a “Banana Republic.”
“We the People” are becoming an underclass, shoved around and trampled at the whims of the “elected aristocracy” that seeks only to advance its own interests. “Rights” are systematically being granted to a class of people who are within our borders illegally, simply because they hold the promise of blossoming into a robust voting bloc once they extort the title of “citizenship” from the government. And, when such “rights” are arbitrarily bestowed where they do not belong, they are concurrently eroded among those who are properly entitled to them.
The American culture that stood as a moral and philosophical “fortress” against such threats from within and without, is no longer being passed on to the ensuing generation. Hence, that generation has no understanding of the concept that it should require those things from its leaders.
Such quaint concepts as heritage and allegiance are secondary to the interests of those inside the Beltway, and are increasingly subordinated to the pragmatism of the moment. Yet, the politicians who engage in such seditious behavior at the behest of the special interests who increasingly control them, are content to let someone else pick up the pieces down the road.
Word is out that the immigration “reform” bill is a done deal. Democrats, along with the Republican President, are enthusiastic about its passage. Republicans, shell-shocked in the aftermath of last November’s elections, are moving to fully embrace and institutionalize the very manner of compromise and capitulation that initially aroused anger and antipathy among their Conservative voting base.
Discussion of the “need” for a third party, the predictable public reaction to such callous indifference from the Washington elites, most often discounts the fact that third parties rarely succeed. While third party organizations may be birthed on fervent platforms of noble ideology and principle, they invariably lack a sufficient understanding of the process or the resources needed to garner effectiveness on a national scale.
Yet, with Washington Democrats so committed to a course that sacrifices America’s very future, and with their Republican counterparts equally committed to concession and submission, it is perhaps time to start considering the establishment of a “second” party.

and as a member of the Wyoming State Republican Central Committee. He has assisted Republican candidates for local and state
legislatures and for the United States Congress. His articles, which appear regularly in The Progressive Conservative, U.S.A.,

the Liberal Leftist faction in the Republican Party as well as by the much larger and more powerful Liberal Leftist faction in the
Democratic Party. During the early and middle 1990s, Adamo was Editor of the Wyoming Christian Coalition's official news organ,
The Wyoming Christian.
