Who governs America?



Who governs America?

Hello, this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. This is Friday the 5th day of July in the year of our Lord 2024. I will be talking today about the recent presidential debate and what it says about America today. And since this is Independence Day weekend, I will be mercifully brief.

Debate, disaster – and a burning question

Yes, it’s 4th of July weekend here in America when most people have 4 days off from work, but this lonely podcaster sits here on the 16th floor of Memphis, Tennessee to bring you a few words from his heart. I suppose that everyone saw the debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump a few nights ago. If you didn’t see it, you undoubtedly know what happened, but perhaps you are not as terrified as I am. In one sense it was a disaster of epic proportions. And in another sense, it was just eye opening and mind boggling.

It was a disaster in that the whole world could see that the person who is supposed to be running this country can’t possibly be doing so. That is the important question for us to consider right now. The issue is not will Biden continue as the candidate or will he be replaced, but who exactly is running this country?

Who’s in charge in America today?

Do you know what terrifies me even more than wondering who is in charge? What if it’s he? Because he can’t possibly be president. When someone wakes him and says Mr. President, we have detected a nuclear launch from, Russia, China, North Korea, wherever, what does he do? He would have literally only minutes to execute launch on warning thus putting us into global nuclear war. That would be scary for anyone but right now it is terrifying. It seems to me that the nation is in extreme peril without leadership that is cognizant of what is happening in this world.

There are other issues that one wonder about. But the finger on the nuclear button is of course what he is responsible for. Who signed all those executive orders and policy directives? I know it was the president but was his mind so diminished that he didn’t know what he was doing. Who decided to permit and even invite mass illegal immigration without any vetting? Now the crime rate is falling in Venezuela and El Salvador but soaring here. Why? Because those countries are emptying their prisons onto our borders. Who decided to foment climate change policies so austere that our economy would be slowed, perhaps permanently?


A litany of bad decisions

Who decided to fuel a proxy war in Ukraine that threatens to draw us into a catastrophic war with nuclear armed Russia? Who decided to give unqualified support to Israel no matter how disproportionate their response to the terrorist attacks of October 7?1 Was the president behind all or even any of those decisions? And if so, how would we know? His mental state was laid bare for the whole world to see the other night. His responses were incoherent, confused, lost, without the ability to complete even the most basic thoughts.

This is a period of national shame. Furthermore, the country is left without any confidence as to in whose hands our future lies, at least humanly speaking. It is so funny that it is hard not to laugh at the president’s responses. But when one realizes the magnitude of what is at stake it becomes sobering indeed. Do you think Mr. Xi, Mr. Putin, the little rocket man, and the Mullahs were watching that debate? You know they were, and I would guess they are wondering the same thing I am. Which is, whose finger is on the nuclear button.

The Deep State is in charge of America today

The deep state of unelected bureaucrats which the Supreme Court has been trying to chop at the branches of but not the roots of, must be in charge. It is obvious now for the whole world but especially Democrats, and most importantly Democrat media, that we have been walking on uncharted ground since the 2020 election. Joe Biden was not in 2020, and is not currently, fit or able to discharge the duties of the world’s most important job. His enablers and handlers from his own family to the Democrat power brokers continue to exploit him and the country for their own personal benefit.

Right now, we are indeed walking on uncharted ground but I think army colonel Douglas Macgregor said it best:

It is time to ask; who truly governs this country? Is it we the people, as our founders intended, or have we surrendered control to unelected bureaucrats, sprawling federal agencies, and affluent donors who do not have the best interests of ordinary Americans at heart? To say it is a national shame is an understatement. This travesty should end immediately. It is now obvious that the governing power to determine our nation’s destiny lies in unelected hands.

Yes, the colonel’s analysis is spot on. This nation that we are constantly told must protect “our democracy” is neither a democracy nor republic. When we point out that constitutionally this nation is a republic not a democracy we are called fascists, etc. The truth is now out and can’t reasonably be denied and that is that people who have not been elected are exercising power of an immense nature and are doing a very poor job of it. These unelected people, whoever they are, have something other than the best interests of the American people in mind or else they must all be complete idiots.


Why didn’t the media tell the people?

The real question that needs to be addressed is not who will replace him. Because at this point it’s impossible to have any confidence in any Democrat politician. The real question that the news media should be asking but isn’t asking, is how long have you known and why didn’t you tell us? That question is being avoided instead of asked. So it’s obvious that the captive media is in league with the devil. It is serving as his assistant instead of reporting his actions.

Did he suddenly lose his mind in 90 minutes? Or have you known all along and kept it secret from us? People knew before his campaign when he ran it from his basement. Government and media have been perpetuating a hoax on us. And that hoax is that for this entire administration’s time in office, someone other than the president has been running the country, someone not answerable to voters. Who are these people who live in shadows, answerable to no one? The media cover-up for them; they don’t ask who they are.

System in reverse

Finally, folks, the system is supposed to work in reverse of how it is currently working. The media is there to protect the governed from the government. But instead it protects the government from the governed. That has to change if we are to live without fear of an out-of-control government, or no government at all. If we reward these people by reelecting them I guess we deserve what we get.

At least that’s the way I see it.

Until next time folks,

Editor’s Notes

1 Proportionality to the Fourth Arab-Israeli War is debatable at best. The Israelis have, in CNAV’s opinion, a valid argument, when, as, and if they care to make it. Which is: an army that commits rape and murder of civilians as a war tactic, deserves total and complete annihilation. HAMAS substitutes for the Army of Gaza. Furthermore, when an attacker sites its command-and-control in civilian quarters, a counterattacker has no choice but to attack the command-and-control and inflict whatever casualties are necessary to its destruction.
