Domenech: Doing nothing is what the federal government does these days

By Fox News Staff | Fox News

What the government cannot do is what everyone expects a government to do says Fox News host, Ben Domenech.

Domenech said on 'Fox News Primetime' the incompetence within the government under the Biden administration is unprecedented.

The Left wants to 'hate' everything Americans were raised to love.

The Crisis we face today goes to the heart of what kind of nation we will be. As in 1776, it is a question of who rules. Is it the globalist tech oligarchs? Hollywood executives beholden to China? The race radicals who dominate our universities? A fundamentally anti-American media? The frail feeble politicians and the Marxist children of the left?

Or is it us - the American people - a great people, a free people, who above all care not for money or power, but for the nation that we love?

Understand it is the totalitarian left that WANTS a national divorce. They want racial strife that burns down your cities. They want envy and segregation and division that pays for their million dollar homes in Topanga Canyon. They want to demolish Mount Rushmore, make you pay for abortions, and force your daughters to compete in sports against men. They want to teach your children to hate cops, the anthem, the flag, and everything you were raised to love and respect. They want to destroy our great American experiment - a thriving capitalist multi-ethnic republic of God-fearing people - for all time.

But we’re on to them. We’re not going to let them. And together, we’re going to show them what free people do.

Ben Domenech: Doing nothing is what the federal government does these days. No, I don’t mean in the usual sense of Harry Truman’s "Do-Nothing Congress." Usually, when people complain that the government does nothing, they just mean it didn’t do what they want. I mean it literally. I mean the federal government, increasingly, can do nothing. Not in a partisan sense. Not in an ideological sense. Step back a bit from whatever allegiance, bias, or prejudice you have for a moment — and see the spectacle of the federal government of the United States, incapable of everything but nothing.

It’s a new thing in American history, so new it just crept upon us in the past few years. It’s so shocking that most of us don’t see it — because we can’t. Pattern recognition is one of the innate gifts of man’s intellect, but it requires a prior pattern to work. We’ve never really seen the government in Washington, D.C., capable of nothing before.

Yet here we are. The list of things the federal government suddenly cannot do is nearly a list of things absolutely everyone — left and right, Democrat and Republican — expects a government to be able to do.
