Last week’s mayhem in Washington, the mendacious accusations of the Democrats notwithstanding, was not incited by President Trump. The wildly exaggerated “storming of the Capitol,” like the huge protest itself, was caused by the belief — shared by countless millions of Americans — that the voters no longer have any meaningful influence over the Washington establishment. This sense of powerlessness is by no means ameliorated when we see a small cadre of Big Tech oligarchs and the corporate media collude with the Democratic Party to crush dissent from “progressive” orthodoxy. Fortunately, Article V of the Constitution provides a legal remedy for the grotesque hubris of the Beltway ruling class that may prevent a genuine insurrection.

Their objections fell on deaf ears — or at least Wolf’s deaf ears. Levine stayed. But alas, coming to the rescue of Pennsylvanians is an unlikely ally: President-elect Joe Biden. The day before his inauguration, Biden heralded a new era for “transgender” rights when he tapped Rachel Levine to be his incoming assistant health secretary. So Pennsylvanians’ demands that Levine
