Trump, Democracy, and the Constitution

By Douglas V. Gibbs

AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

It would be commendable proclaiming that we need to protect our democracy from the clutches of whoever wanted to destroy it if indeed we were intended to be a democracy.  Except, that’s not the case.  The word “Democracy” does not appear in any of the founding documents, and there is a long list of quotes by the Founding Fathers about the dangers of democracy.  Yet, here we are, convinced that the United States is a democracy, and that our democracy is in danger.

When Donald J. Trump was President of the United States I remember the New York Times having a headline that said, “Donald Trump is Destroying Our Democracy.”

“I hope so,” was my response.  We are supposed to be a republic, not a democracy.  My latest book, Repeal Democracy, explains chapter by chapter the difference.

In a recent article by Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic, “The Patriot: How General Mark Milley protected the Constitution from Donald Trump,” the writer explains how our “democracy” was saved from the evil clutches of Donald Trump and his anti-democratic activities.  Never mind that the article provides no proof regarding its proposition – so we must ask: Was Donald Trump a danger to the Constitution?

The enemies of Trump claimed he was some kind of dangerous military madman who would start wars, and use the military against the American People.  The truth is that Trump is the first President in pretty much all of our lifetimes not to start a new war, nor escalate a conflict in place when he entered office.  Rather than escalate tensions with any “nuclear-armed adversaries,” Trump actually did the opposite, taking actions to end Obama’s deal with Iran which enabled Iran to head in a nuclear direction, and he walked North Korea back from the edge of the ledge when it came to that country’s ambitions.  As for any “Russian collusion,” that was an illusion created by the Democrats in the hopes of destroying Trump – a deception that became exposed easily, yet is denied as such to this day by the allies of the enemies of Trump.

Goldberg’s article claims Milley’s phone calls to China promising warnings to the communist country if Trump attacked was how the military general saved the Constitution from the horrific Trump Presidency, but in truth Milley’s actions edged on treason.  If anything, Milley’s actions were against the Constitution, not Trump’s alleged desire to do whatever the leftists thought he was capable of.  What Trump did do when it came to China was establish a better playing field when it came to trade with his limited tariffs policy.

The Democrats and their allies in the Republican Party were convinced that Trump was some kind of authoritarian.  It was projection, to say the least, but they are so good at lying they even get to the point that they begin to believe their own B.S.

Speaking of B.S.: Now, the January 6 “Capitol Riot” is the B.S. they are believing.  They staged it, organized it, threw flash bangs into the crowd to create chaos, make it sound scary, and push the people towards the Capitol Building, and then claim it was Trump and his supporters who were complicit in the “attack” and that somehow it was some kind of insurrection.  For a historian like me it was simply a “Reichstag moment” carried out by the enemies of Trump.

Insurrection, from a constitutional point of view, is not disagreeing with the government.  Insurrection is what they are guilty of – offenses against the Constitution.

Disagreement against an unconstitutional system leaning towards oligarchy, which is what the enemies of Trump have established, is not insurrection – it’s patriotism.

It’s interesting, though, how the lefties call Trump an incompetent President, but we must then ask, “Who was it that led a deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan that left 13 dead soldiers and hundreds of Americans stranded in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, and then while he was at it left a massive amount of military equipment behind for the enemy to use against our allies?”

Wasn’t that a move against what our Constitution is all about?  Wasn’t that a move against America?  Wasn’t that a foreign affairs failure and, must I say, giving aid and comfort to our enemies?

Yet, Biden’s hand in that was somehow forgotten, nobody was punished, and everyone kept their jobs.

Could you imagine the screaming that would have occurred if the blunder had occurred under the Trump presidency?

Just remember, all of you Democrats who might be reading this; when you point a finger in accusation, three are pointing back at you.

Mr. Constitution: Douglas V. Gibbs

  • Faith
  • Education
  • Advocacy
  • Restoration


My wife, Virginia, and I lived out of a suitcase for a week and a half; and what a fantastic trip it was. The theme for all three events was “Republic versus Democracy” in the hopes of generating recognition of why the difference is so important, encourage action to resolve the problem, to bring attention to the efforts we are working on regarding the issue, and to sell copies of my latest book, “Repeal Democracy.”

  • Lake Havasu City: Before a crowd of more than fifty people at Covenant Church in the city along the Colorado River in the great State of Arizona Doug delivered a longer than usual speech with Tina Peters available at the conclusion in the audience. The day prior Doug also got a chance to meet Kari Lake and Sheriff Richard Mack, the latter of which was already an acquaintance of Mr. Constitution. Watch the Speech
  • Mackinac Island, Michigan: Before a crowd of more than 600 people at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan, Mr. Constitution Douglas V. Gibbs delivered a fiery speech about being involved, the problem with the folks who are “left of the Constitution,” and the efforts he is behind when it comes to restoring the original intent and principles of the United States Constitution. Video coming soon.
  • Final Stop, Palos Verdes, California. Small group (about a dozen or so), but very enthusiastic and appreciative of the information provided by Doug’s speech. Video coming soon.
  • Take action, let’s spread the word more about how to restore the republic.

Time to Choose. Restore the Constitution, or Allow the Forces of Evil to Continue to Stomp On It

My journey across the United States has been an interesting one. One thing I notice every time I travel is that the rest of the United States is nothing like California. However, anti-constitutionalism still lives in even these parts of the country. It hides in plain sight, pretending to be wrapped in the Stars and Stripes while conspiring to betray the foundations of our country that the Founding Fathers so wisely established. The news is filled with deception and evil perpetrated by the enemies of the Constitution, and Americans fall for it all of the time.

I received a message from a friend. He’s in North Carolina and came across a play about the Constitution. “How encouraging,” one might think on the surface, before looking deeper into what the whole thing is all about. He was skeptical about the play, and decided to do a little investigating before accepting it as a production by allies of the Constitution. “What the Constitution Means to Me” sounds like it is pro-Constitution on the surface, if you are gullible and not naturally a cynic like my friend. Then, he looked into it. And, as his gut suspected, “The main message in the play is if the constitution should be abolished or rewritten by the people who are in power now. Like I said, bunch of liberal BS.” The play teaches that the Constitution is a “living and breathing” document; something that changes with the whims of society, and the whims of the courts. If it is not a contract as originally intended, then it can be changed by simply adjusting language, or “interpreting” it through judicial fiat. “Living and Breathing” means that it is not a document for We the People, but a document for the politicians and judges to manipulate and adjust as the tyrants who seek to destroy it desire.

The swamp is deeper than President Trump even realized. According to the New York Sun, “Of the 2.2 million federal civil employees, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The rest stay in their jobs from one administration to the next, protected by rules that make it nearly impossible to discipline or replace them. They overwhelmingly favor the Left. A staggering 95 percent of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates give to Democrats, according to Open Secrets. Only a tiny 5 percent support Republicans.”

Not exactly news that the mainstream media will report. You don’t hear about it because they do everything to keep you in the dark. “Nothing to see here.” If you try to expose to anyone that the system is rigged, and the enemy is inside the gate, you are labeled a spreader of misinformation, and you are silenced. The war against leftism (everything to the left of the Constitution) is not only fought out in the open, but deep in the jungles of government bureaucracy and in the shadows of hidden corridors. We have ceased to be a republic not only because the Marxists deep in the trenches of government work to turn us into a democracy, but also because those deep and dark corners of government are already openly conspiring against America in the hopes of changing our system into a utopianist model that the Founding Fathers never intended. If we do nothing, the cancer will continue to spread.

They change the laws as they want, more often than nit behind closed doors, and sometimes in plain view, to fit their agenda. They use deception and their own committees and allies to rule mercilessly as they distract you with social issues that are beyond insane. They launch psyops to keep us off-balance, and bickering with each other. They choose what hits the headlines, and in Georgia as they attack President Trump they seek to silence him, and throw him behind bars. The truth is, after they are done with Trump, they will turn on the rest of America.

It is time that we stop accepting their lies, and stop playing the game according to their rules.

In 2021, I traveled to Corpus Christi, Texas to visit patriots who are doing what they can to keep their State in line with the Constitution. In Diamondhead, Mississippi I had a meal with a group of people trying to educate those around them about the Constitution. In Nashville, Tennessee I met with a group of movers and shakers to strategize on what to do next. In Kentucky I fellowshipped with fellow Christians at The Ark and Creation Museum. Then, in Colorado Springs, I spoke on stage to a crowd hungry for the truth, and ready to do the things necessary to restore our Constitutional Federal Republic. Last year I did the same in Denver, Colorado. In 2023, Mr. Constitution was sent to Washington D.C., thanks to donations by members of my Constitution Classes in Southern California, and last Monday I spoke in Lake Havasu City the day after Constitution Day to an eager crowd and a wonderful online audience. Now, I am in Michigan for the State GOP Convention. I take the stage tomorrow with people like Dinesh D’Souza, Kari Lake, and Jim Caviezel.

It turns out the difficulties inside the GOP is not only a California thing. The experience so far, in relation to my relationship with the Michigan Republican Party, has been challenging. I have experienced the same issues with the Michigan GOP I have seen in California, and throughout the country. Our Republican Party has been infiltrated, and the enemy has convinced much of the party’s faithful to follow the same destructive path our colleagues in the Democrat Party have been following.

The Republican Party is not our salvation, nor should it be. It is a vessel we need to take back, and use to steer American back to the original intent of the Constitution. The political parties are tools, not ways of life. The left is wielding the Democrat Party like a deadly weapon, should we not regain control of the GOP and use it for the purposes of restoring the Constitution, putting We the People back in control, and defeating the enemies of liberty and justice?

The reality is, The Constitution does not begin its Preamble with the words, “We the Politicians,” “We the Judges,” nor “We the Ideologically Faithful.” It begins with the words, “We the People.” Restoring the Constitution will not begin in Washington, it will not be carried out by politicians nor political parties. The judges, politicians, and bureaucrats are not largely our allies. Sure, a few of them are, but for the most part, we are on our own. It is up to We the People; average, everyday Americans, who love this country, appreciate its founding, and recognize the Constitution as a godly foundation of our exceptional system, to rid the halls of government of the cockroaches who are breeding there.

It is clear to me that we are at war. The hard-left uses strategies and tactics of war, and we are too busy bickering among ourselves over petty issues. The enemy has done all it can to kill the mechanisms and basic republican functions of our constitutional federal republic. The truth is the enemy’s goals are as clear as can be. They want President Donald Trump in a prison cell, and they want to strip you of your liberty and ability to assemble, speak publicly, write freely, debate, run for office, and question anything that they do. And then, when they are finished with their task of silencing us, they will take away our guns, and pursue laws targeting the free exercise of our religious beliefs.

They have weaponized the federal government, and are working to do the same in each of our States, and even in our local governmental offices such as city councils and school boards. Their vicious tactics should concern EVERY American!

It’s not just the Democrats. Remember, they have infiltrated the GOP as well, and some of them even call themselves Conservatives. The truth is, they do not plan to stand up for LIBERTY or true constitutional JUSTICE. They play by their own rulebook, and operate in a world of double-standards. It is time for us to speak up, gather together, and tackle the enemy once and for all.

But, I can’t do this alone. I need you on my team. I need your support so that I can continue my quest to educate, advocate, and restore the Constitution.

Join me by adding your name to our newsletter, and joining the fight. For less than the price of a cup of coffee at one of those star-struck coffee houses you can ensure that I can continue to educate and advocate on the radio, in podcasts, in videos, on Political Pistachio, in the classroom, and on the road as I travel the country with one message: “We must return to the Moral Foundation of the United States Constitution if we are going to turn things around.” We must be educated if we are to advocate, and we need to be advocating TOGETHER!!!

Enough is enough. You have the ability to help me turn things around. It is not hopeless. They are fallible. They CAN be defeated. It will not be easy, it is a long process that begins with Constitutional Education — but it can be done.

In these challenging times we need to work together, and find encouragement through fellowship with each other as we prepare for the battles that we must win.

Working together, we can — and we WILL — restore the Constitution, and save our country.

United We Stand, Combined We Kick Butt.
