The Road to Tyranny is All Downhill From Here
and the end of the road isn't far away.

You don't need me to tell you that the federal government was originally designed to be much smaller and much less powerful than it is today.  (Well... maybe some of you do.)  Certainly the founding fathers intended it to be far less intrusive and costly.  But today we have arrived at a point where the federal government micro-manages numerous little details, including a law — the Comprehensive Energy Policy Act of 1994 — requiring that new toilets use only 1.6 gallons per flush.  (As long as swimming pools are legal and golf courses are irrigated with drinking water, 1.6 gallon toilets should not be mandatory.)  Very gradually, more and more laws and regulatory agencies are being created, and one day even the most gullible citizen will wake up and realize that he is ruled by tyrants.

Subsection about the Disinformation Governance Board, also known as the Ministry of Truth

This subsection has quickly moved to a page of its own, located here.



Under Biden, America Is becoming a police state.  According to a recent poll by Rasmussen Reports, 72 percent of likely voters are concerned that the federal government is devolving into a "tyrannical government that engages in mass surveillance, censorship, ideological indoctrination, and targeting of political opponents," aka a "police state." [...] Based on a small sample of the scores of egregious actions of the Biden administration, it makes total sense that most Americans believe the Democrats are responsible for the nation's decline from a constitutional republic on the road to despotism.

The cartels who run the world.  The European Union is a cartel.  The oil industry is cartel.  The FDA and the CDC are cartels.  Everyone knows about the Mexican drug cartels.  They are the cartels that run Mexico, control our southern border and, since Joe Biden took office, have become fabulously wealthy trafficking women and children as well as drugs into the U.S.  They benefit financially from every migrant they allow to cross into the United States.  The migrants pay, they are given wristbands that are their permission slip to cross the border.  When the oleaginous Alexander Mayorkas testified under oath that he had no idea what those wristbands were, he blatantly lied, as he has numerous times since.  Bottom line?  The Biden administration has willingly relinquished control of our southern border to these Mexican drug cartels.  As a collective, they are a vicious, brutal enterprise that operates on one rationale:  Our way or death.

Democrats Have Become The Party Of Authoritarianism.  They Only Understand Power.  [Scroll down]  Or again consider the role of Biden's Justice Department and FBI in protecting Hunter Biden and the president from congressional investigations that are, as of this writing, still uncovering [substantial] evidence of corruption connected to Hunter's overseas business schemes.  Just this week we learned that two payments totaling more than a quarter-million dollars were wired to Hunter Biden from China, and the beneficiary address listed on the wires was Joe Biden's home address in Delaware.  (At the time the wires were sent, Hunter was living in California.)  Surely, you might be thinking, not even the most rabid partisans on the left can think that this is justice, or that this will end well for the country.  Surely they see the danger of supporting a politicized federal law enforcement bureaucracy that criminalizes the opposition and uses the justice system as a weapon.  Even if they don't denounce it publicly, certainly they're talking amongst themselves about how terrible this is and how to stop it.  Right?  Wrong.  To think this way is to misunderstand Democrats and the left completely.  No, they're not worried about any of this.  No, they don't want it to stop, they want it to continue and intensify.  They don't want justice, they want power.

More Than One-Third of Democrat Voters Think Americans Have 'Too Much Freedom'.  According to a recent RealClearPolitics poll, more than three out of 10 Democrat voters think the people of America enjoy "too much freedom."  Imagine that: a substantial percentage of the Democrat Party — AKA: the party of "tolerance" and "inclusion" — wants to deny free speech or censor the First Amendment rights of people who don't believe as they believe.

Rebranding Tyranny.  Most confrontational journalism these days centers in the cities, on gender issues, the vaccine, the lying liars in government at every level, the Big Game in DC, the Great Game in geopolitics, but out here?  This is the real game.  If these people lose this fight, every generation from now on will be busted down to serf.  In every country.  If America falls, so does the world.  I do not exaggerate.  You will have no right of self determination.  Every mouthful will be measured and every outbreath taxed.  You will be monitored everywhere you go, and you will be mind controlled through your media.  You will own nothing.  Because right now, it is ALL being taken, acre by acre by acre.  One billion acres by 2030.  Another by 2050.

The Democrats Will Never Do That in America!  In repeated articles on Townhall and my personal substack, I have clearly explained the philosophic and ideological foundations of modern Leftism.  And I have shown, from history, where it comes from and why they believe what they do.  I have given historical example after historical example after historical example of the monstrous crimes the Left has perpetrated in the last 200 years — and I've hardly even started. [...] Just keep in mind Hitler couldn't kill massive numbers of Jews until AFTER he came to power.  Stalin couldn't institute his Great Terror until AFTER he came to power.  Mao couldn't collectivize agriculture and create a great famine or have a "cultural revolution" until AFTER he came to power.  Pol Pot couldn't kill 25-30% of Cambodians until AFTER he came to power.  But once they did gain totalitarian power, these Leftists DID do these things.  That's what history teaches us that Leftists/socialists do.  So, please explain to me WHY Democrats/Leftists in America WON'T do these things if they ever gain totalitarian power in our country.

Are We Preparing For A Coup?  "The Homeland Intelligence Experts Group is being formed at a time of unprecedented challenge, with the U.S. intelligence enterprise facing threats from a range of malign actors, to include foreign nation-state adversaries, domestic violent extremists, cybercriminals, drug-trafficking cartels, and other transnational criminal organizations," said Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis Ken Wainstein recently.  "The Experts Group will be an invaluable asset as we navigate through this evolving threat and operating environment and continue to strengthen our efforts to protect the Homeland."  Who are these "experts"?  Among them are some familiar names:  John Brennan — former head of the CIA.  One of the people at the heart of Crossfire Hurricane and most of the efforts to topple Trump from power.  James Clapper — maybe second only to Brennan in his commitment to crushing the MAGA movement and preserving the Deep State.  Like Brennan a signatory to the infamous "spy letter" which falsely branded Hunter's laptop as Russian disinformation.  Paul Kolbe — a former CIA officer and also one of the guys who signed the letter branding Hunter's laptop as a fake.  The remainder are a predictable collection of individuals who have spent their lives in permanent Washington and want above all else to make sure no real change ever occurs.

The Homeland Intelligence Experts Group.  [Scroll down]  DHS has created a Homeland intelligence Experts Group to deal with national security issues.  Appointed to this group are James Clapper, John Brennan, and Paul Kolbe, former intelligence officers who signed the October 2020 letter deceptively implying the Hunter Biden laptop was "Russian disinformation."  Kanekoa the Great asks the question on every thinking person's mind:  "Why select intelligence officials who intentionally spread misinformation to sway a U.S. election for a role in a DHS Expert Group tasked with national security??  Shouldn't they be losing their security clearances?"  Also selected for this group by DHS head Alejandro Mayorkas is Tashina Guahar who oversaw the fraudulent Carter Page FISA — the fake claim that set off the illegal surveillance into the Trump campaign.  They're just trying humiliate us by showing they fear no consequences for what they've done.

The curse of corporate culture.  If you were to do an internet search, you'd find mostly positive statements about the benefits of corporate culture.  Then again, if you were to look for a book about the evils of communism published in China, Cuba, or Venezuela — you'd come up empty-handed.  There's also the term "corporate socialism."  Enlightened management knows what is best for the workers — including what they do after work.  After all, everybody belongs to a team.  It is all about team work.  I once attended a trade association meeting where a representative from a company located in Berkeley addressed the attendees and bragged about how his company cared so much for its workers.  Not only were they not allowed to smoke at work, but they couldn't do it at home, either.

The demise of the simple drive.  If we were of a mind to, my husband and I could fill up our car with gas, get a pocketful of cash, grab a map and just take off.  We could stop anywhere we wanted, whenever we wanted until we felt like coming home.  We could just top up with more gas and keep going.  America is full of fabulous sights to see and things to do.  We have plains, mountains, rodeos, state fairs, big places, little places — all waiting for you to drop by.  Sounds simple; it always has been.  It requires, however, many freedoms we have always taken for granted.  There is a problem with this innocent little outing.  This is Klaus Schwab and his Davos buds' worst nightmare and they want to put an end to such capricious expressions of free will.

20 common functions of American life the government wants to regulate, restrict or outright ban.  [Scroll down]  All of the 20 items have one thing in common — they allow us to live our lives independent of the government.  Once the government claims a right to regulate, restrict or ban these items and actions, the powers that be — the oligarchs — know we will become totally dependent on the system for our survival.  Food, water, energy, money, healthcare and the freedom of movement will all be 100 percent controlled.  Some hospitals are already requiring patients and visitors to have a face scan before they can be treated or enter and visit their sick loved one.  You don't agree, you don't get into the hospital.  These face scans are also being done at most international airports across the U.S.  You don't agree, you're not allowed on board the flight.  The same facial recognition systems are also being installed at sports stadiums and other large-venue entertainment complexes.  It won't be long before a digitized biometric scan of one type or another is required for you to "prove your identity" before being allowed to enter a store or restaurant.  That will include grocery stores.  They'll say it's to protect us.  It's always for our own safety, security and convenience.  That's the way the beast system works.

Jacinda Ardern Denounces Free Speech at United Nations.  Covid tyrant Jacinda Ardern is no longer in power.  However, she remains a menace to freedom.  Watch her hold forth at the comparably pernicious United Nations regarding the need to suppress dissident speech — or as authoritarian moonbats call it, "mis- and disinformation":  [Tweet with video clip]

Globalist UN Official Calls for More Controls Over Speech, Greater Censorship of the Masses.  Melissa Fleming is the "Chief Communicator" for the United Nations since 2019.  Her bio on her substack page says she promotes a peaceful, sustainable, just and humane world.  This is how she describes herself.  In real life she is anything but that.  Fleming is a power-obsessed narcissist whose goal is to contral everything that you think, read, or hear.  Fleming went viral this week on social media after a recent speech she made was made public.  The woman is a stone-cold tyrant.  Worse than that she is too arrogant to see how vicious she sounds to the masses.  And she claims her expertise is communications?

Homeland Security awards $20 million in grants to help identify Americans as potential 'extremists'.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced on September 6 that $20 million in federal grants (your tax dollars) will be handed out to 34 organizations to "prevent targeted violence and terrorism."  Since today is the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, you might think these 34 organizations will be focused on al-Qaeda, ISIS or the Iranian Republican Guard Corps.  But you would be wrong.  They are focused on Americans who dissent from the prevailing narratives coming out of the federal government and its collaborating partners in the corporate media and major social media platforms.  Whether it's Covid and vaccines, the war in Ukraine, immigration, the Second Amendment, LGBTQ ideology and child-gender confusion, the integrity of our elections, or the issue of protecting life in the womb, you are no longer allowed to hold dissenting opinions and voice them publicly in America.  If you do, your own government will take note and consider you a potential "violent extremist" and terrorist.

A gun grab to test the waters.  Democrats are testing the waters for a national gun grab.  On Friday in New Mexico, the governor, a Second Amendment foe, tried to take legal guns away from one of her cities. [...] Let no one be fooled:  This is Step One to see if Americans are paying attention and if they have the stones to fight back.  If they are not and don't, this will go national and the Second Amendment will fall.  Democrats are clever.  They won't try this in a large, populous city with national attention.  They will try dying a corner of the fabric first to see if the color is good for the whole garment.  It seems the Guv got national attention anyway, probably because of the outrageousness of the grab.  Our Constitution is a paper document with nothing to protect it from being burned to ashes.  Unless the People rise up against this gun grab, the rest of us will be forever unprotected against what has become The Beast that is governmental overreach.

When a governor does something so blatantly unconsitutional, what's the point?  Is she just making a name for herself?
NM Gov cancels 2nd Amendment in Albuquerque.  We should rightly call what happened in New Mexico yesterday outrageous, but things like this are happening so often these days that some of us may have started to become numb to it.  Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued an executive order suspending the right of citizens to carry firearms across the City of Albuquerque and the surrounding county for thirty days.  She claimed the ability to do this by declaring a state of emergency in the area and seizing emergency powers under that premise.  The "emergency" in question was a spate of shootings in the city in recent weeks.  The Governor plans to have the state police enforce the order, likely because the city's Chief of Police has already refused to enforce it and the County Sheriff immediately said he was "uneasy" about the order.

What Will America Be Like Under Biden's Digital Dollar?  Look At Communist China.  President Joe Biden issued a sweeping executive order last year on Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), which "places the highest urgency on research and development efforts into the potential design and deployment options of a United States CBDC."  The Biden administration and its corporate media echo chamber want Americans to focus only on CBDC's many benefits.  But experiences in China, a nation that launched a digital currency in 2020, have shown that a CBDC considerably expands government power at the expense of individual freedom.  China's digital currency, e-CNY, differs significantly from cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.  For instance, neither central banks nor governments have the power to program or manage Bitcoin.  The total amount of Bitcoin was capped at 21  million by its mysterious creator.  Such a finite supply gives Bitcoin its anti-inflation property.  While Bitcoin transactions are transparent for all to see, users remain anonymous.

Arming the 14th Amendment Against Trump Voters.  Within minutes after the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol Hill riot began, the Democrats, the corporate media, and countless progressive law professors unanimously declared that it was an "insurrection."  Inevitably, they accused then-President Trump of inciting this purported uprising in order to overthrow the 2020 election.  Most Americans, however, saw the mayhem merely as a protest that devolved into a riot.  Then the other shoe dropped.  The people promoting the "insurrection" narrative developed an intense interest in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which disqualifies anyone from holding public office at the federal or state level if they have "engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the United States."  Not coincidentally, the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives used this as a pretext for impeaching then-President Trump for "incitement of insurrection."  The Senate acquitted him, of course, and speculation about the 14th Amendment died down.

Buttigieg's 'Equity' Team Seeks to End 'Racist' Private Car Ownership: 'All Cars Are Bad'.  Democrat President Joe Biden's "woke" Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has formed a team of "equity experts" that seeks to end private car ownership.  Buttigieg has been busy allocating tax dollars to appoint a group of "leading experts" to advise him on "transportation equity."  Several members of Buttigieg's Marxist "equity" team argue that cars cause "climate change" and "promote racism" and therefore should be phased out.  The target is not just traditional gas-powered vehicles, however, as the "experts" insist that "all cars are bad," including EVs.  Earlier this month, Buttigieg appointed 24 new members to his Advisory Committee on Transportation Equity.

The Editor says...
If "all cars are bad," how do Washington bureaucrats get to work?

Retired social worker, 73, is quizzed in her own home by hate-crime police for taking a photo of a STICKER.  Police officers quizzed a pensioner in her home on suspicion of a hate crime after she stopped in the street to take a photo of a sticker which said: 'Keep males out of women-only spaces.'  The sticker had been placed on to a LGBT+ pride poster which had the slogan Stand By Your Trans.  Officers told the 73-year-old retired social worker that she had been identified from CCTV footage.  The woman told The Mail on Sunday she was 'in a state of shock' when officers arrived at her door.  The incident [...] comes after fury over police forces failing to send officers to investigate burglaries and other serious crimes.

The Biggest Missed Story of the 21st Century.  Here it is:  the biggest missed story of this century is the incredible dumbing down of the American public, to the point where a cripplingly large portion of the adult population is no longer willing or able to exercise independent critical thinking in order to take decisive action on a wide range of issues that shape the direction of our economy, culture, and personal freedoms.  Indeed, too lazy and unmotivated to analyze readily available, credible data, far too many people have ceded their personal independence to government dictates — dictates clearly designed to increase government control over the population, rather than having been put in place for the genuine good of the people.

Why is the IRS Buying .40-Caliber Submachine Guns?  When the corporate media asked the IRS why it needed automatic weapons, millions of rounds of ammunition and heavily armed staffers trained in the "use of force," they said it was for "administrative reasons."  But we now know that the globalists are not just arming the IRS, along with just about every other federal agency.  They are militarizing these agencies to the hilt with military-grade weapons not available to American citizens.  Why, for instance, would the IRS need armored vehicles, flash-bang grenades loaded with tear gas, and .40-caliber submachine guns?  The IRS has been arming up for at least ten years.

DHS: No Return to Pre-9/11 Freedom.  Ever.  Looking back over the last 10 years and thinking about where many of us were and how we felt when the towers fell is surreal.  These are sad thoughts.  But what I find even more saddening is the fact that we have allowed our country to become more and more of a police state over the last 10 years.  And apparently, the end is not in site, and will likely only become worse.  When the Department of Homeland Security was launched after 9/11 and the Patriot Act was launched as a bill that would last only 4 years, many freedom loving Americans squabbled.  Most turned to those rebels and told them to "shut up," that it was necessary to protect America.  Then we allowed the TSA to militarize our airports and treat us like cattle.  Then came the unsecured and blatant violation of personal privacy when travelers data was being collected.  And of course the full body pat downs of children and full-body scans.

Tyrants Make De-Tyrannification a Criminal Act?  By definition, tyrants are those who, for whatever reason, have been empowered to write, interpret, and enforce any such laws as they alone may feel are even remotely necessary and appropriate for them to protect and retain their power.  Now, with that definition in mind, consider the notable recent efforts of people like of Fani Willis, Alvin Bragg, and Jack Smith, i.e. politically-motivated prosecutors who are working in service to their tyrant overlords by aggressively and blatantly taking advantage of an inexcusable two-tiered system of justice to take down the ideological foes of their expanding totalitarian regime.  Which, in turn, is necessarily placing a fear-based constraint on everybody else's right to speak freely about how to best protest, and hopefully eradicate, this metastasizing cultural cancer that is threatening to strangle (completely) our God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

AI and the Elites.  Vernor Vinge, an outsized influence on infotech culture, once speculated that a truly efficient totalitarian system wouldn't consist of jackbooted secret police and continuous surveillance but in fact would scarcely be evident.  Things would just happen to enemies of the state, accidents that nobody could predict or explain.  For instance, an individual presenting a problem for the powers would order something for dinner that arrives chock full of botulin toxin, injected in the lab that transforms insect proteins into edible food.  As the toxin hits, his phone, internet, and monitoring equipment all go down.  After the job is done, they all come back up, their logs edited to show nothing at all unusual.  When the body is discovered, there's no evidence of anything out of the ordinary.  Death by misadventure.  What ya gonna do?  And so it would go on, day after day, year after year, the bonds growing ever tighter, and nobody even noticing.

You can vote all you want, but the rulers will do whatever they choose.
Executive Orders and the End of Liberty.  On August 1, 2023, it became "illegal" to manufacture or sell incandescent light bulbs anywhere in the United States, and consumers are left with no choice but to purchase LED bulbs.  Incandescent bulbs were a previously legal product about which no public outcry had arisen.  No law was actually passed anywhere.  The decision was made solely by the executive branch of the federal government.  Congress did not vote.  There was no consensus for any such thing.  A staple consumer item has disappeared from store shelves everywhere. [...] The light bulb ban is not the only example of government excess by mere decree.  Electric cars are slowly being imposed on us with no legislation and no general consensus.  Pandemic lockdowns were imposed despite legislative and public opposition.  A new example has surfaced this month in Boston, where the mayor has unilaterally banned new construction on municipal buildings that would use fossil fuels.  This ban was accomplished through an executive order instead of through City Council. [...] We are fighting for the liberties with which we were born.  The issue is no less than tyranny.

If you live in one of these cities, your meat and milk supply might be in danger.  According to a recent article by thefederalist.com's Evita Duffy-Alfonso, fourteen major American cities are part of a globalist climate organization known as the "C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group."  The group has an "ambitious target" of "0 kg [of] meat consumption," "0 kg [of] dairy consumption," "3 new clothing items per person per year," "0 private vehicles" owned, and "1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person."  You read that correctly: the group has the stated goal of effectively banning meat and dairy consumption — and private vehicle ownership — by 2030.  The shocking and dystopian goals can be found in a report titled "The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5° C World," which was originally published in 2019 and purportedly re-emphasized in 2023.  The C40 group is led — and largely funded — by Democrat billionaire Michael Bloomberg and comprises almost 100 cities across the world.

14 US cities initiate new globalist climate plan in partnership with Soros and the Clintons.  The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group is a globalist enterprise with at least 14 partners right here in the U.S., and, they have set an "ambitious target" to convince the masses to give up meat, dairy, and private car ownership, as well as almost all flights, to supposedly save the planet and control temperatures forever around the current level.  So 14 leftist cities in the U.S. have signed on to this commitment to take away freedom of choice from their citizens, while people suffer under rampant crime and children perform poorly in schools, but their priority is to take away milk, meat, and gas-powered cars.  Got it.  Major funders and partners of the organization include George Soros's Open Society Foundations, the Clinton Foundation, and The World Bank.  Michael Bloomberg, the president of the group, is himself transported via gas-guzzling private jets and limousines, to his many mansions around the world.

14 American Cities Agree to Go Full-Marxist, End Dairy, Meat, and Cars by 2030.  The so-called "great" reset involves more than just giving up voting privileges.  It calls for a steady loss of liberties until you "own nothing and are happy."  The truly nauseating angle here is that a portion of our population can't wait to surrender their freedoms, largely for no other reason than to "stick it" to those of us who respect the Constitution and the liberties it confers to We the People.  In other words, leftist harpies are willing to give up their cars, meat, coffee creamer, and whatever else it takes to look at us and say, "Ha-ha!" We'll see who has the last laugh when Dylan Mulvaney and I are in a gulag, scrapping for the last rotting cabbage.

These 14 American Cities Have A 'Target' Of Banning Meat, Dairy, And Private Vehicles By 2030.  Fourteen major American cities are part of a globalist climate organization known as the "C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group," which has an "ambitious target" by the year 2030 of "0 kg [of] meat consumption," "0 kg [of] dairy consumption," "3 new clothing items per person per year," "0 private vehicles" owned, and "1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person."  C40's dystopian goals can be found in its "The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World" report, which was published in 2019 and reportedly reemphasized in 2023. The organization is headed and largely funded by Democrat billionaire Michael Bloomberg.  Nearly 100 cities across the world make up the organization, and its American members include Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.  Media coverage of C40 Cities' goals has been relatively sparse.  The few media personalities and news outlets who have discussed it have been heavily attacked by the corporate "fact-checkers."

Christianity and the Globalist Agenda.  There's plenty out there to defy these days.  One big piece at a time, the whole world is coming under the control of fewer and fewer people.  That is inherently suspect, but their avowed and allegedly benign objectives make matters far worse.  Just two hedge funds, Vanguard and Blackrock, with combined assets well over $20 trillion, are the biggest shareholders in 88 percent of the companies on the S&P 500.  These massive wealth managers work in concert with the World Economic Forum, the World Federation of Advertisers, and other transnational institutions to, as Ben Shapiro documents in a must-watch video, "create a universal framework full of guidelines and ratings designed to enforce approved narratives."  And what is the purpose and objective of these narratives?  In a 30,000 word essay, "The China Convergence" published earlier this month on Substack, author N.S. Lyons writes:  "The less the people are willing and able to practice self-governance individually and collectively, the more formal rules and systems of external authority will step in to micromanage what they want and how they behave."

Biden administration best understood as a junta.  I have come to realize that the Biden administration is nothing but a junta.  Those who constitute it are the opposite of the Founders.  They don't believe in limited government — of, by, and for the people.  They do not believe in objectivity — or freedom of speech, religion, and assembly.  They do not believe in "the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects," or in their right to be free from "unreasonable searches and seizures."  (Just ask Roger Stone or Donald Trump.)  Nor do they believe in equality under the law, the people's right to a "speedy and public trial" by a jury of one's peers (just ask Donald Trump), natural law, etc., etc.  And they certainly don't believe that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."  In fact, in recent years, they appear increasingly to disdain all these concepts...because they obviously increasingly disdain those who disagree with them and/or who could stand in the way of the ever-increasing power and control they have over others — power and control they revel in and believe they richly deserve.  They do believe in a Supreme Ruler.  But they believe they are that Supreme Ruler.  They believe they have the right — indeed, duty — to rule over the "deplorables" in rural areas and flyover country.  Preposterously, they purport to believe that their ideas and policies must be implemented, whether the rest of us like it or not... if we are to "save our democracy."  There is nothing less democratic — or more deplorable — than that.

"Climate emergency" declaration = endless dictatorship.  As many leaders obsess about summer temperatures that are predictably a little warmer than they used to be — given the gradual warming trend and El Nino year — we are hearing more calls for the Biden Admin to declare a "climate emergency."  This would be a catastrophic decision.  A government "emergency" declaration is a temporary increase in power that should only be used if a problem meets 3 criteria:
  •   Dire:  Unusually deadly
  •   Temporary:  Of limited duration
  •   In our control:  Actually solvable by our government
"Climate emergency" is none of these.

Domestic Enemies of the Constitution and the American People.  The political process is, by design, contentious.  Through this tension, the extremes of governance were supposed to be restrained, leading to gradual change, reliable policies, a degree of bipartisanship, and a predictable market economy.  There were always exceptions to the rule, but 9/11 was different, and it opened the door to profound changes in how we engaged the world and the way we viewed our own.  Unprecedented permanent powers were created to surveil Americans citizens, secret intelligence courts were established and normalized, and America's role as guarantor of inalienable rights was no more.  The beginning of the rift between the government and its people results directly from massively increased spending and subsequent actions taken to "protect us," which could also be construed as "control us" — it's a fine line between "for your safety" and "for your enslavement."  Politicians and agencies like the FBI exploited their new mandate to "protect and defend" to increase their power and prestige; today, we live with weaponized bureaucracies and two-tiered justice.

A Climate For Absolute Power.  There are so many slip-ups and absurdities coming out of [Joe Biden's] mouth that it's hard to keep up.  But one recent gaffe stands out:  The president said last week during an interview with the Weather Channel that he had already "practically speaking" declared a climate emergency.  He of course hasn't, but should he or another president do so, they would in effect also be declaring themselves to be an American kaiser who could issue tyrannical edicts with absolute power.  They would be able to autocratically "deploy around 130 different powers," says Climate Depot's Marc Morano.  Operating under emergency climate powers, a president could halt "the export of crude oil ... phase out all exports and imports of fossil fuels entirely ... stop issuing permits for offshore oil and gas wells under already existing leases and halt all drilling immediately ... marshaling funding under the DPA to deploy clean energy — for example, rooftop solar installations on low-income housing," according to Morano.  He, or she, could also implement lockdowns similar to those forced on us during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Comparing the Tactics of the Dems to the Nazis is No Longer Seen as Unreasonable.  So far, we've documented 24 startling and uncomfortable ways the Democrat Party Emulates the Nazi Party.  We've done a lot so far and unfortunately; two factors see the task stretching off into the distance.  The very disturbing problem we face is that the combination of current events and research reveals even more similarities making the task a never-ending process that seems to go on forever.  It's to the point of having a sense of dread at the thought of researching these facts, knowing that more commonalities will crop up. [...] The bad news is that with a century-long difference in technology, today's left is turning out to be far worse than the Nazis in some respects.  There is nothing more terrifying at this point than the thought that history is repeating itself and will make the Nazis look tame by comparison.

Devin Nunes:  David Weiss is Another John Durham Protective Silo - The Deep State Operation Tracks Back to Obama Weaponizing Intel and DOJ.  This interview segment is almost as if Devin Nunes reads here.  The former House Intel Committee chairman outlines the appointment of David Weiss as another DC silo creation similar in construct to John Durham.  Obviously, Nunes is correct.  Additionally, as Nunes accurately outlines the entire weaponization process traces back to when Barack Obama took office and unleashed the apparatus of the intelligence agencies to target domestic political opposition.  At the same time, Obama's AG Eric Holder created the DOJ National Security Division and then weaponized surveillance under the auspices of FARA and FISA Courts to target one side of the political dynamic.  [Video clip]  Elevator Speech:
  [#1]   The Patriot Act turned the intel surveillance radar from foreign searches for terrorists to domestic searches for terrorists.
  [#2]   Obama/Biden then redefined what is a "terrorist" to include their political opposition.

No US Presidential Election in 2024?  In January 2023, US special counsel Jack Smith applied for and received a subpoena for Twitter, specifically for all of Donald Trump's utterances at the site through the years, including the ones he may have never published.  Note: the subpoena came long after Trump left Twitter. [...] Trump left Twitter (was cancelled) on Jan 8 2021, Elon Musk bought it on October 27 2022, and renamed it "X" in late July 2023.  Just so we get our horses and dogs in line.  Special counsel Jack Smith received his Twitter/Trump subpoena with the added provision that it had to be entirely secret, not even Twitter or Trump could know.  US District Court Judge Beryll Howell gave Smith what he wanted, agreeing that if Trump's years-old Twitter past was known, he would become a flight risk.  But both Smith and Howell knew this was absolute nonsense.  Not only is Twitter the last place you turn to when you have nefarious secrets to hide (it's the opposite!), but the man is running for President[...]!  And because of some 5 year old (or so) tweets he would pack in the family and disappear to an (underground) bungalow on Vanatua, never to be heard from again?  I would put this down as the moment when it became impossible for the US to have a presidential election in 2024.  We've had some 8 years of this anti-Trump circus now, non-stop, Hillary, Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Robert Mueller, yada yada yada, but I don't think we've reached the point before where the elections might as well be cancelled.  We're there now though.  And that is a BIG point.  We've let it come far too far.

They Break Every Family, Every Town, Every Country.  This is the second in an August series about the Head of the Snake, an examination of the cabal that is behind the Great Reset, the Covid and Global Warming hoaxes, and every profit-bonanza war of the last thirty, if not 500 years, but especially Ukraine.  They call themselves by a proliferation of names: the Olympians, the Elect, Bilderbergers, the 300, demi-gods, the Black Nobility, other silly secret names that must not be spoken.  They are secret because their intent is evil.  They practice the occult — foolish and irresponsible — they are "Masons" of the crazy branch, a cult that operates entirely in the dark and entirely for themselves.  They are as power-hungry as Hillary Clinton and far more corrupt than she or Biden or his dreadful son.

White House Teases Climate Emergency:  Says Every Big Storm a Result of Global Warming!  Is this really where we're headed?  A national emergency for climate change?  It's become abundantly clear that the Biden administration is now considering COVID-style lockdowns with the idea of exploiting weather conditions as a pretext for exerting more control over the American people.  During a recent CNN interview, John Kirby suggested President Biden treats the supposed climate crisis with "all the due gravity and seriousness."  What does that even mean?  Is it another clever way to prepare the masses for yet another assault on our freedoms, this time under the guise of "climate emergencies"?


        " 'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded."
F.A. Hayek               


Biden Is Moving to a Climate Emergency with 130 New Powers.  If Joe Biden declares a climate emergency, he would have 130 new powers, including the power to lock us all down.  He admits he has declared a national emergency, "practically speaking."  During an interview with The Weather Channel on Tuesday aired on Wednesday, President Joe Biden said that "Practically speaking," he's "already" declared a national emergency on climate change. [...] In light of the Maui fires, the media is pushing Joe Biden to declare an official climate emergency.  If Biden declares a 'Climate Emergency,' he would seize 130 new powers.  Among them would be COVID-style lockdowns that bypass democracy and human rights.

The Editor says...
The Constitution does not include the word emergency.  And even if it did, bad weather is not a national emergency.  One fire in Hawaii is not a national emergency.  This is a power grab on the part of the anonymous commie puppeteers who operate Joe Biden.

If Biden declares a 'Climate Emergency,' he would seize 130 new powers.  "The Biden administration believes that when democracy fails to achieve its climate goals, it's time to bypass democracy and Congress and follow the COVID model.  Climate activists have lusted after the COVID lockdowns as the model for climate lockdowns.  The plan is to declare a 'climate emergency,' toss out elected representatives and follow China's one-party rule model by implementing energy restrictions through the bureaucracy.  They don't need no stinkin' democracy.  Throughout history, emergency declarations have been used and abused to crush freedom.  For those who loved how unelected officials ruled our lives under COVID lockdowns, prepare for the attempts to make climate lockdowns permanent.

Chase bank politically cancels the accounts of several doctors, their families, and their employees.  They're coming for you next:  Continuing what increasingly appears to be its bank policy, JP Morgan Chase bank suddenly and without warning or reason recently canceled the bank accounts of several doctors, their families, and their employees, apparently because these doctors don't abide by the lockdown policies and medical health advice of our government.

Schwab's Daughter Confirms COVID was a Precursor to Climate Lockdowns.  Nicole Schwab, the offspring of World Economic Forum mastermind Klaus Schwab, admitted that COVID was simply a precursor for coming climate lockdowns.  In the leaked video above from a June 2020 panel discussion in Switzerland, Nicole comments that COVID proved the world could strongly shift once people felt an extreme threat to their livelihoods.  She notes that policymakers now have more power post-COVID, and changes need not be incremental.

Democrats Are Dancing the Totalitarian Two-Step.  Democrats and corporate media throw around terms like 'fascism' and 'dictatorship' as a means of stifling discussion of anyone they disagree with. [...] When it comes to totalitarianism, I am afraid we are there.  America as a beacon of freedom and liberty may be in hospice care, barely alive, with little hope of survival or healing.  COVID was a good example of "complete control and regulation over public and private life."  DEI and wokeism is much the same.  Then there is political dissent.  Socialist historian Howard Zinn proclaimed, "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."  Socialist two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton echoed, "We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration."  The Biden-Garland-Obama junta took a 180 by criminalizing free speech and dissent.

A Country Descending into Madness.  [Scroll down]  Make no mistake: today's voluntarily enslaved press adores totalitarianism just as much as the totalitarians in office do.  I do not like the current state of our nation.  Our government spies on us without cause.  The administrative bureaucracy enforces regulatory edicts without any constitutional authority or consent from the people.  Heavily armed federal agencies intimidate Americans with the threat of physical violence.  The corrupt Department of (in)Justice continues to wage legal warfare against the ruling regime's political enemies.  These are all forms of tyranny that America's Founders risked their lives to reject.  Such injustices will not stand.  I am glad to be alive during this moment in history — when ordinary people have a chance to rectify past abuses and set America back upon a righteous course.  Our adversaries talk about a "Great Reset" that will launch the United States and other Western nations into a new era of technocratic State control over citizens.

The Antichrist System Is Being Positioned Right Before Our Eyes.  The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an organization of 190 countries. [...] An IMF staff report dated March 29, 2023, said, "The global central banking community is actively exploring Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), which may have a fundamental impact on both domestic and international economic and financial stability."  This report also said, "Over 40 countries have approached the IMF to request assistance through CBDC capacity development."  A recent CBDC survey "covered a record 81 central banks, representing close to 76 percent of the world's population and 94 percent of global economic output.  The survey found that nine out of 10 central banks are now exploring CBDCs, with half developing or running concrete experiments."

Climate Change is Not High on Our List.  It disturbs me to hear privileged coastal elites, including U.N. secretary general António Guterres, complain about the Earth's climate having reached the "boiling point."  Today's temperatures are less than what my grandparents and parents experienced in the 1930s and no more than what I grew up with — without air-conditioning — in the 1950s, a decade that was called the "Little Dust Bowl," and for good reason. [...] The real crisis today, as a thoughtful piece in Britain's Telegraph newspaper points out, is not the "boiling point" — an absurdity, since at sea level water boils at 212 degrees, while the highest temperature ever recorded on earth is 134 degrees (in Death Valley, California).  The real danger is that the political elite will use climate change as a pretext to seize total control of the economy and of our private lives, and that working people like my grandparents and myself will be forced into climate change servitude.  That means dictating where we live, what car we must drive, what we learn in school, how businesses operate, how retirement savings are invested, what can be spoken in public or private, and thousands of other aspects of everyday life.  That is the essence of totalitarianism, and it is exactly what climate alarmists wish to impose.

At this point, why not bypass the legal niceties and just put Trump in jail?  The Biden Administration has clearly given up on the idea that the federal government exists to do anything but satisfy Joe Biden's whims.  So why not get it over with?  Throw Donald Trump in jail without due process, construct reeducation camps, and rename the FBI the Stasi? [...] If we lived in a free country with a working press there would at least be some outcry.  Stories about the corruption would be printed and crusading journalists would be ringing alarm bells about the destruction of democracy.  Actually, on that latter point, they are doing precisely that, only they are blaming the Republicans for not buckling to the inevitable.  The current definition of "democracy" is simply complying with anything the Left wants to impose on us.

Energy industry fears Biden to declare climate emergency, seize powers like COVID pandemic.  President Joe Biden appears to be facing increasing demands to declare a climate emergency, like the one declared for the COVID-19 pandemic that had a devastating impact on the country, warns a top advocate for the U.S. oil and gas industry.  "They're leaning to that direction," U.S. Oil and Gas Association President Tim Stewart recently told Just the News.  "If you grant the president's emergency powers to declare a climate emergency, it's just like COVID."  Stewart also said such a declaration would give the president "vast and unchecked authority to shut down everything from communications to infrastructure."  He said infrastructure would include water and electricity, and that Biden also could freeze assets under such a declaration.  The White House COVID emergency that was declared by President Trump in 2020 resulted in the closing of U.S. borders and required a vaccination for federal government employees.  In the following months and years, with many businesses also shuttered, the country plunged into record unemployment and inflation.

The Risk That Americans Are Too Busy To Notice Our Dying Liberties.  In a perfect world, no one would have to pay much attention to the government because it would be run like a well-oiled machine in the background that wouldn't cause any trouble.  But that's not how governments work.  Our Founding Fathers knew that, which is why they gave us a government of separated powers with staggered terms for those responsible for exercising them.  But even such a near-perfect document cannot stand forever in the face of avarice and the lust for power.  That greed and lust for power is the defining characteristic of what we call the Swamp.  And it was enabled by a plethora of acts that strengthened and emboldened the apparatchiks who man it.

De-banking has begun in the US.  I have written a couple times about the de-banking scandal in the UK, where Coutts Bank apparently has dropped thousands of customers for being politically incorrect.  This came to light because they took on a target too big to ignore:  Nigel Farage, a GBN broadcaster and leader in the Brexit movement.  He had been a member of the European Parliament and founded the UK Independence Party, which transformed into the Brexit Party.  In other words, Farage is a big deal in Britain.  Lots of people love him, and lots of people hate him, including every single member of the establishment.  Britons, though, hated that Farage and other people with views unpopular to the establishment could simply be exiled from the modern economy based upon the whims of bank executives, so scandal erupted and the fallout is still raining down.

WEF advisor:  COVID is a model for making change.  One of the "conspiracy theories" the media derides is the idea that the elite wants a "Great Reset," despite the fact that Klaus Schwab wrote a book about it, Prince Charles made a video promoting it, the WEF has a huge website dedicated to it, and everybody in the elite seems to be executing the plan.  But if you listen to the MSM, all those private planes flying to Davos to discuss how to make our lives miserable just happen to be a busy day at a ski resort.  And nobody wants you to eat bugs, either, although you DO know they are tasty and nutritious, racist!

The scariest poll you'll see this summer.  A majority of Americans — and an overwhelming number of Democrats — no longer support First Amendment protections for free speech.  The government should restrict "false" information online, even if doing so blocks people from "publishing or accessing information," 55 percent of Americans said in a large poll released Thursday.  Only 42 percent disagreed.  The antipathy to free speech represents a sea change in attitudes in just five years.  It is driven by a powerful new hostility to First Amendment rights on the left.

The Final Countdown: Agenda 2030 on the March.  King Charles III insists that we have only six years left to "save the planet."  (p)Resident Biden is spending tens of billions of dollars to ensure that high-speed broadband internet access is universal within the U.S. and its territories by 2030.  Intelligence analysts continue to predict that China will invade and conquer Taiwan no later than 2030.  Four Electoral Court judges in Brazil have banned former president Jair Bolsonaro — an anti-globalist conservative — from office for eight years.  The Department of (in)Justice and political activists posing as prosecutors in New York and Georgia are doing everything in their illegitimate powers to prevent President Trump's return to the White House — a reality that would derail the Deep State's Marxist globalism this decade.  It seems as if all the great powers of the world are marching in lockstep toward the same Zero Hour.  Global industry must be immediately reorganized in order to avert "climate" disaster.  Americans must be universally chained to an online system that can monitor their movements, control their digital assets, assess their compliance with "vaccine" and "global warming" mandates, and feed them "approved" information.  Free countries such as Taiwan must be absorbed by communist dictatorships.  Outspoken nationalists who oppose one-world government must be deposed or jailed permanently.  Mark your calendars and prepare accordingly, because 2030 sure looks as though it will be a doozy!

California scheming.  If you liked the coronavirus lockdowns, you'll love the coming climate lockdowns.  Leftists sure liked the former, noting that animals reclaimed some urban areas and the skies were clearer and bluer.  Government pandemic policies forced millions of Americans to work from home, and this could become the permanent norm if special carbon taxes are put in place. [...] Drive to work in a car?  You are subject to special taxes.  Travel by plane?  Ditto.  Moreover, your children will be impacted by climate lockdowns, too.  For example, schools may frequently impose online only school days.  In the U.S., California-style rolling blackouts will become the norm across the fruited plain due to failed green energy policies.  With the abolition of "fossil fuels" and nuclear power, consumers will be prevented from purchasing new gasoline-powered cars, lawnmowers, leaf blowers, and chainsaws.  Nor will many soon be able to obtain or afford gas stoves, water heaters, and air-conditioners.  California will ban the sale of gasoline cars in less than 13 years, because, you know, the internal combustion engine is E-V-I-L.  Despite the fact that it has arguably led to more freedom and prosperity than any other invention in the history of the world.

[The] Left [is] Now Pushing Biden to Ignore Supreme Court Decisions He Disagrees With.  Two radical left "scholars" have crawled from underneath the rocks where they were hiding and are now openly advocating the end of "judicial review."  That's the theory that the Supreme Court has the last word on constitutional issues and that all must obey their decisions — including, and especially, presidents.  The doctrine dates back to the 1803 Marbury v. Madison decision, where Chief Justice John Marshall decided the ultimate question of power: is an act of Congress or the Constitution the supreme law of the land?  But now, Harvard law Prof. Mark Tushnet and political scientist Aaron Belkin are advocating for something they're calling "Popular Constitutionalism" to give Joe Biden the dubious authority to ignore or disobey Supreme Court decisions.

Michigan Charges 16 People — Average Age 69 — for Believing Trump Won.  Sixteen Republicans in Michigan — including former state co-chairwoman Meshawn Maddock — are being prosecuted by Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel for putting themselves forward as alternative electors after the 2020 election results were contested.  AG Nessel accuses the would-be electors — who average out at 69 years old between them — of having "undermined the public's faith in the integrity of our elections," and has hit each of them with eight felonies, among them forgery, conspiracy to commit forgery, and election law forgery.  Several of the charges carry prison terms of up to 14 years.  "Undoubtedly, there will be those who claim these charges are political in nature, but where there is overwhelming evidence of guilt in respect to multiple crimes, the most political act I could engage in as a prosecutor would be to take no action at all," the Democrat claimed.

Son of Canadian pastor facing prison for sermon blasts Trudeau before EU Parliament, draws standing ovation.  The son of a Canadian pastor drew raucous applause from the European Parliament earlier this month when he pleaded for international pressure in the case of his father, who potentially faces 10 years in prison after delivering a sermon to truckers blocking the U.S.-Canada border last year.  "I am here today in desperation, a cry for help," Nathaniel Pawlowski, 23, told members of the EU Parliament on July 4.  "I would like to stand here and tell you all the things about freedom and democracy that I like, but I no longer know those things."  "They have been taken away from us Canadians.  Canada has fallen."

Biden Proposal Would Give Foreign Climate Group Veto Power Over U.S. Military Contracts.  A new Biden administration rule aimed at reducing carbon emissions would give approval authority over large U.S. defense contracts to a little-known British environmentalist group that just incorporated two weeks ago.  Under the White House's proposed rule change, a London-based group called the Science Based Targets Initiative that is funded by the Democratic Party's main dark money network would be responsible for approving the carbon emissions reduction plans of large federal contractors.  The Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) is a fee-based service that helps companies set emissions reduction targets in line with the Paris Climate Agreement and verifies their progress.  But its foreign status and murky financial background raise questions about the Biden administration's decision to outsource its vetting process to the group.  Critics say the proposal would give SBTi enormous veto power over American defense contracts and access to potentially sensitive data about U.S. military suppliers.

Will Someone Please Wake Me From This Nightmare?  I worked with many Democrats for several years and considered them to be both logical and sane.  Yet, what is happening in America right now in mostly Democrat-led states and cities is neither logical nor sane.  It has to be obvious to any thinking person that if America continues down our present path, we will be easy game for a foreign power, and our great republic will be destroyed.  This has to stop, and it begins with some patriotic American Democrats re-taking control of their party and stop this madness.  This is not just a nightmare that will go away when we awake.  This is a terrible national condition that must be remedied before it is too late.  Things are moving so rapidly toward destruction that we may not survive until the next election.  We have to wake up from this madness.

Progressivism's Rejection of Civil Rights.  When it comes to protecting religious freedom in America, forget about the civil rights community.  Just like President Biden, these groups have now surrendered to progressive ideologies, unwilling to defend anyone who disagrees with them — even if the opposition is grounded in sincerely held religious belief.  A look at this past Supreme Court term proves this point.  Take, for example, the recent case involving Lorie Smith, a Christian website designer who wanted to expand her business to offer wedding websites for couples celebrating traditional marriage.  Smith went to court, concerned that Colorado's Anti-Discrimination Act (CADA), a broadly defined public accommodations law outlawing discrimination based on sexual orientation could compel her to design websites for same-sex weddings.  Smith explained that she had no problem working for gay clients, but that she couldn't use her talents to celebrate unions that were at odds with her beliefs.

Fighting back against Smart Cities.  So-called "smart city" technology includes ultra-high resolution, internet-connected cameras, license-plate readers, facial-recognition scanners and speakers.  It will set the framework for digital eyes and ears to spy on citizens 24/7, uploading personal data in real time to be perused and analyzed by law enforcement, financial decision-makers and other third-party stakeholders. [...] The tools of the surveillance state, however, are not just being installed in major cities and international airports.  Kootenai County in North Idaho is also up against a smart city plan.  And the city of Jackson, Wyoming, last week became the latest to install AI-powered mass surveillance cameras. [...] The purpose is not to save lives but to control behavior and effectively cripple Americans' longstanding freedom of movement.  The long-term plan is to entirely automate all transportation, using driverless cars, kill switches and social-credit scoring systems to define and limit the extent to which individuals are allowed to travel.  Essentially, all transportation will be public transportation.

A State of Martial Law: America Is a Military Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy.  The events of recent years have all been part of a master plan to shut us up and preemptively shut us down: by making peaceful revolution impossible and violent revolution inevitable.  The powers-that-be want an excuse to lockdown the nation and throw the switch to all-out martial law.  This is how it begins.  As John Lennon warned, "When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system's game.  The establishment will irritate you — pull your beard, flick your face — to make you fight.  Because once they've got you violent, then they know how to handle you."  Already, discontent is growing.

An Infinite Number Of Days To Flatten The CO2 Curve.  [Scroll down]  How would the government deal with a climate emergency outside of placing limits on our movements as a free people?  Another sign that we are being softened up to take whatever punishment the political left decides to mete out was last week's maniacal media coverage of "the hottest day ever."  CNN vomited out nonsense about "record-break global temperatures" that were likely the "highest in 'at least 100,000 years.'"  The Washington Post screeched that "Earth is at its hottest in thousands of years," and proclaimed that "climate denialism" has been "burnt to a crisp."  It was all meant to stir up fear and continue the conditioning of the West for the next round of policy shackles.  We regret that it will have its intended effect on many, even though, as our friend Steve Milloy from junkscience.com wrote in the Wall Street Journal, "the notion of 'average global temperature' is meaningless."

Enough!  You have to hotwire the system if you want to be free, if you want a republic, or even a democracy, because they don't want you to have anything.  Ever.  You are at once their most feared adversary and their most contemptible nuisance.  Only you can decide which will invade their private thoughts.  I don't know what anyone else is waiting for.  They have nothing good in the works.  All they focus on right now is how to push you father, hurt you more, make you lash out intemperately, uncontrollably, and even when you don't, like January 6th, they will pretend that you did.  All the weight of the federal government and corporate society is now against you.  Those who criticize capitalism are the capitalists, actively punishing you for being American.  The more you cling to traditional thought, traditional expectations, the more you draw their ire.

Intrusive bankers and government overreach.  It is 11:40 on a Thursday morning when I decide to go to my bank.  I will deposit a check which I received as a result of a real estate sale.  I also want to withdraw money which I deposited long ago, from the same account because I have some purchases in mind that I would prefer to make in cash; nothing illicit, illegal, or out of the ordinary. [...] The minutes start passing.  She checks this.  She checks that.  A line begins to form behind me.  She asks me to sign a couple things.  Okay, fine.  Now I'm thinking, alright, in a minute or two, I'll be out of here.  Instead, she picks up the phone and dials someone in the bank.  She turns back to me and says that her supervisor wants to know what the money is for. [...] When she tells me that her supervisor needs to know what the money is for, matter-of-factly and without hesitation, I say to her that it's none of his business.

Meat, Plane Rides, and Clothes Are Gone in 2030, Say WEF Commie Prags.  The World Economic Forum (WEF) is, thankfully, not being secretive about its plans to enslave us.  Unfortunately for humankind, we are once again ignoring the tyrants looking to take over the world.  Hitler's book Mein Kampf outlined exactly what the budding dictator planned to do.  Germany let him out of prison anyway.  Guess what happened?  Everything he wrote about in Mein Kampf.  Our would-be masters at the WEF have a detailed strategy regarding what you eat, where you go, how you get there, and what you're going to wear.  And they plan to kick their tyranny into high gear by 2030.  For starters, you'll eat roughly 35 lbs. of meat per year under the WEF's "progressive" goal.  That's down from the 252 lbs. of meat the average American consumes annually as of today, which means our meat consumption will be roughly 14% of what it normally is.  If the misers at the WEF hit their "ambitious" goal, you won't taste another steak again as of 2030.

A spy in your pocket.  You knew it was coming.  I knew it was coming.  But cell phones are so darn convenient that we have been crossing our fingers and hoping it wouldn't happen.  You phone will be (already is?) spying on you.  Well, the future is here in France.  A bill just passed that will allow the government to secretly turn on your phone's camera and microphone without your knowledge.  As of now, the power to do this legally will be restricted by the need for a judge's assent, but if you think that this limitation will be respected and that it never will change, I have news for you:  your privacy is gone.  [Tweet] [...] The list of abuses the FBI has engaged in over the past few years is impressive.  Illegal searches, lying to the FISA court, opening an investigation into a presidential candidate/president based upon no evidence, intimidation of activists...   [Tweet with video clip]  Books will be written about the corruption of the intelligence apparat in the United States in the past decade or two, and the US has more legal protections for citizens than most countries.  But the abuses of power go unpunished, and when they do they multiply.  Now France is openly sanctioning turning your expensive cell phone into a snitch, and you can bet that governments around the world have been doing this for a long time without anybody knowing.

WEF Partner Aimed to 'End' 'Private Car Ownership' to Save the Planet.  The World Economic Forum (WEF) isn't the only entity planning for a world where you "own nothing, have no privacy" and enjoy it — or else.  WEF's partner Arup Group released a 2019 report pontificating, "private car ownership needs to end."  This was allegedly going to solve the fake "crisis" of climate change, which has supposedly been about to cause global apocalypse for 50 years now.  But give up your car, you stupid peasant, and trust the experts.  Arup Group, which is listed as a partner by the insidious World Economic Forum, released a 2019 report demanding that consumption of clothing, cars, electronics, and food has to change — for everyone except the elites, presumably — or climate change will kill us all.  The report touts "net zero" carbon goals, totally ignoring the fact that carbon is absolutely essential for life on Earth.  Indeed, increased carbon actually helps plants — including food crops — thrive, and humans and animals need it too.  But neither Arup nor WEF is interested in objective science, only in a narrative that impoverishes most citizens and gives the elites exponentially more control.

The U.N. Is Planning To Seize Global 'Emergency' Powers With Biden's Support.  In September 2024, less than two months before the next U.S. presidential election, the United Nations will host a landmark "Summit of the Future," where member nations will adopt a Pact for the Future.  The agreement will solidify numerous policy reforms offered by the U.N. over the past two years as part of its sweeping Our Common Agenda platform.  Although there are numerous radical proposals included in the agenda, perhaps none are more important than the U.N. plan for a new "emergency platform," a stunning proposal to give the U.N. significant powers in the event of future "global shocks," such as another worldwide pandemic.  Many of the details of the U.N. emergency platform were laid out in a March 2023 policy paper titled "Strengthening the International Response to Complex Global Shocks — An Emergency Platform."

Conservative Failure and the Administrative State.  James Landis is widely credited with crafting the theoretical architecture supporting President Roosevelt's radical reconstruction — and expansion — of the federal government.  Landis shrewdly both established and legitimized the regulatory state, including Roosevelt's creation of new federal administrative agencies, by offering the regulatory state as the solution to the problem of modern governance:  the administrative state "is, in essence, our generation's answer to the inadequacy of the judicial and legislative process."  The Landis premise took concrete shape through Roosevelt's expansion of the regulatory state, and in doing so, it brought to fruition Woodrow Wilson's progressive intellectual project: rule by experts, insulated from the popular will[.]

The Traitor Class.  What America is up against is unlike anything we have ever encountered or experienced.  It has the potential of being more bloody than the Civil War and more threatening than both world wars.  But now we face an army of traitors... a traitor class, domestic enemies working behind the scenes in shadow.  They are dividing our country, destroying our freedom, our democratic republic, our sovereignty, our Judeo Christian values, our morality, the family unit, our culture, even our monuments to American heroes.  They are spending us into oblivion as Cloward and Piven envisioned.  The traitors are accomplishing this because they are getting no opposition.  A lot of people are confused.  They think it is just politics.  It is not just politics.  The Left is planning to deliver The United States to the New World Order in the next very few years and they are on schedule.  They are globalists, more loyal to their political party and to globalism than they are to their country.  They number in the many hundreds, maybe thousands.  They have taken over the Executive Branch, the Justice Department, certainly the FBI.  Half of the Senate and half of the House.  Almost the entire school system is teaching values contrary to our culture and religion

From American Dream to Orwell's Nightmare.  A survey by the Cato Institute finds 29 percent of Americans aged 18-29 respond affirmatively when asked, "Would you favor or oppose the government installing surveillance cameras in every household to reduce domestic violence, abuse, and other illegal activity?"  In 1791, the utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham proposed building a "panopticon" in which people's behavior could be monitored at all times.  But Bentham's panopticon was meant to be a prison.  A sizable segment of Generation Z would like to call it home.  Millennials are almost as submissive:  20 percent of the cohort between the ages of 30 and 44 also wants everyone watched.  Among Americans 45 and older, support for such totalitarian surveillance rises no higher than 6 percent.

Politics and the End of Private Lives.  Cancel culture, like most of our contemporary cultural revolution, began in China.  In the aughts, rural Chinese migrated to massive mega-cities whose impossible population densities were matched by the growing interconnection of the internet.  While three quarters of China's population is now on the internet, in 2006 it grew by a quarter to encompass only 10%.  In these cramped quarters, physical and social, there was no room for the individual.  The Chinese internet, unlike its American counterpart, was always centered around social media which is one reason why TikTok is eating Facebook, Twitter and YouTube's lunches.  It was also always mobile.  Chinese commuters on public transportation tapped in their grievances against neighbors, friends, family and random strangers.  And mobs formed to take sides.

Michigan House passes bill making wrong pronouns a felony, fineable up to $10,000.  A recently passed bill in Michigan would make it a felony to intimidate someone by using the wrong gender pronouns.  Michigan's state House of Representatives has passed bill HB 4474, a piece of legislation that criminalizes causing someone to feel threatened by words.  Under the new bill, offenders are "guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 5 years, or by a fine of not more than $10,000."

Get ready for the war on travel.  This story emerged from an unlikely source involving Glenn Beck's recent vacation to Europe.  As reported at The Blaze, while Beck was overseas he had a disturbing conversation with his travel agent.  He was told, "You should see Europe now while you can."  The reason is that the United Nations has been rolling out "sustainability goals" for the travel industry, particularly when it comes to air travel.  They are trying to force airlines to get to "net zero" in terms of emissions.  As we recently discussed here, the technology doesn't currently exist to achieve net zero for commercial airlines without vastly increasing the cost for travelers.  So the alternative will be to simply shut down air travel for "nonessential" purposes such as tourism, at least for "the little people."

Fight this sinister power grab by the unelected, unaccountable WHO.  THE UK Medical Freedom Alliance is joining grassroots campaign groups in the UK and around the world, with US and UK politicians, in strongly opposing the proposed World Health Organisation Pandemic Treaty (CA+) and the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005).  It is important to understand that these are two separate and unrelated legal instruments, but individually and combined constitute a major power grab and serious threat to national and individual sovereignty from the unelected and unaccountable WHO. There has been no national or international public comment or vote sought as part of the negotiation process, as the public are considered not to be relevant 'stakeholders' in the (largely secretive) negotiation process at the World Health Assembly (WHA), the decision-making body of the WHO.

Fight this sinister power grab by the WHO, Part 3.  There are many red flags in these documents and the underlying ideology.  The WHO make no secret of their lack of concern for ethics and their failure to recognise the innate sanctity and dignity of each human life.  For example, of the many deeply concerning proposed IHR Amendments, one seeks to remove the clause requiring the WHO to uphold 'full respect for the dignity, human rights and fundamental freedoms' of individuals in a declared health emergency.  As things stand, with the WHO merely an advisory body, we have witnessed the most shocking ethical violations over the last three years, as Governments around the world followed their advice in lockstep as if it were law.  Imagine how much worse the situation will be if their advice becomes legally binding on nations under international law.  Medical ethics are vitally important and should be non-negotiable in a civilised society.

California Is Set to Pass Laws Allowing for State-Sanctioned Kidnapping and Required 'Affirmation' of Gender-Confused Kids.  My home state of California is Bizzarroland, totally over the edge.  It was bad enough, but now it has crossed the Rubicon and blown up the bridge and burned the boats.  The Golden State is set to take away parental rights and create a police state where a court and judge must (not may) affirm a child's chosen made-up gender "identity."  But that same California requires permission for a minor to get a tattoo.  Make sense of it.  I can't.  Soon in California, if the Democrat super-majority gets its way, confused children can be taken from a parent(s) and chemically castrated and mutilated at the minor's request.  Think that sounds far-fetched?  It isn't.  Assemblymember named Wendy Carrillo is the author of AB 665.  Eight days ago, during open debate and discussion on her bill, she made the gallery erupt in spontaneous laughter when she said:  ["]We would never move policy that seeks to separate children from their parents.["]  The AP and USA Today are all in for the left, so, of course, they published articles claiming the arguments against are overblown.  No, they are not.  AB 665 will alter the legal landscape and specific language.  What does AB 665 say and ultimately do?  It's the state of California amending the Family Law Code to legally kidnap confused children.

Atlanta Airport goes full dystopian, using digital facial recognition IDs.  World Economic Forum founder and executive director Klaus Schwab heaped praise on the Chinese Communist Party this week for adopting "new COVID control measures" while boosting "social dynamism" at the WEF's Annual Meeting of the New Champions.  We will break down in this article what Schwab means by "social dynamism."  This is important, why?  Because Schwab, a globalist, futurist a transhumanist, holds immense sway over many of our Western politicians in Canada, the U.S., Australia, etc., at both the state and federal levels.  Heads of state and governors of all political stripes, from Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia, flock to his meetings in Davos each year.  Kemp told the corporate media he was going to Davos in January 2023 to "sell Georgia."  He no sooner returned and we found out that Georgia became one of the first handful of states to launch a new drivers' license with biometric digital identities using facial recognition software.  This means a QR Code containing personal biometric data, recognizable instantly when your facial features get scanned at ports of call worldwide, will be assigned to every citizen who signs up for this new digital ID.

Michigan is criminalizing opinions.  To say that Michigan has lurched to the left under the leadership of Gretchen Whitmer and the state's liberal majority would be a significant understatement.  But with a new bill passed in the state House this week, they are taking things to a cartoonish level.  If (more likely "when") House Bill 4474 is signed into law, you will literally be able to be thrown into prison for hurting someone's feelings.  This is being hidden under the guise of protecting people from "hate speech," and includes standard liberal online tropes about "feeling threatened."  To be clear, you don't have to actually threaten someone with violence.  They simply need to "feel" threatened by something you say or post online.  There is no word from Governor Whitmer yet as to whether the State Police will be directed to establish a new "thought police" unit.

Michigan state legislature House passes censorship bill to make free speech a felony.  Democrats run the state government of Michigan, with majorities on the House and Senate of the state legislature and Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer with the ability to sign bills into law.  That's why a bill already passed by the State Legislature's House and assigned to committee in the State Senate is so dangerous.  Can you believe five years in prison for speech based on someone's feelings about it?  HB 4474 has a good chance of becoming law, despite its obvious unconstitutionality. [...] Yes, the bill is unconstitutional.  But if it becomes law, it will takes years and hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars to get it to the Supreme Court for a finding.  IF it makes it there.  Meanwhile, left wing agitation to weaken the Court and drive conservatives from its bench will only intensify.  If they succeed or if mortality intervenes and Democrats get to appoint more justices or even pack the court by expanding it, the constitutional safeguards may crumble in the foreseeable future.

Michigan can now censor you if you hurt someone's feelings.  Michigan's Democratic House passed legislation on Tuesday that enables attorneys to shut down "hate speech."  The new House Bill 4474 is a vague and unconstitutional censorship law that determines "feeling threatened" as reasonable grounds to prosecute offenders.  The punishment for making someone "feel threatened" in Michigan is five years in jail and a $10,000 fine. [...] The problematic language about "feelings" can be found in the bill's definition of "intimidation" as "willful course of conduct, involving repeated or continuing harassment of another individual that would cause a reasonable individual to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed, or molested, and that actually causes the victim to feel terrorized, frightened, or threatened."

Biden [is] weaponizing IRS into a well-armed paramilitary force.  Iowa Senator Joni Ernst introduced a bill last week titled "Why does the IRS Have Guns Act," which would prohibit the IRS from buying or storing guns and ammunition, transfer all IRS firearms to the General Services Administration so they could be auctioned off to licensed gun dealers to reduce the national debt, and move the agency's Criminal Investigation Division to the control of the Justice Department.  "The taxman is fully loaded at the expense of the taxpayer," Ernst said in a statement.  "As the Biden administration has worked to expand the size of the IRS, any further weaponization of this federal agency against hardworking Americans and small businesses is a grave concern.  I'm working to disarm the IRS and return these dollars to address reckless spending in Washington."  While the outcome of Ernst's legislation is not promising — Joe Biden will likely veto her bill, should it ever reach his desk — the Senator's efforts have drawn much needed attention to the massive arsenal that the IRS has amassed — is amassing.

Garland: Questioning the Integrity of the Justice Department Is an Attack on — You Guessed It.  With the sweetheart deal that Hunter Biden just got from federal prosecutors, Attorney General Merrick Garland has once again confirmed that he has taken the Justice Department, which was once the envy of the world for its indefatigable commitment to equal justice for all, and turned it into a squad of legal hit men for foes of the Biden regime and a legal laundromat for the regime's members and cronies, most notably for the alleged president's crackhead influence-peddling son.  Garland himself, however, bristles if you believe your lying eyes on this matter.  On Friday he complained that charges that his Justice Department was doling out frame jobs for dissidents and skates for friends of the regime was a threat to — that's right! — our "democracy."

Resistance.  It's obvious to a great many that the legislature exists only to funnel tax dollars into the pockets of their political allies for which they are endowed with great sums come election time.  In this way they do not represent the people, but their donors and the whole of the government is corrupt.  I don't expect this declaration or designation to mean very much to people while they can still go along to get along.  This post is more to point the way, to establish the understanding of our situation once the banking failures take place, or the war is brought to our shores through their mismanagement of forces and budgets that have been designed for no other purpose than to provide generals with subsequent employment.  It's a wholesale betrayal we're enduring: betrayal of our military leadership, of our legislative bodies, the medical profession, the teaching profession, but more specifically and more intentionally the economic system.

The World Economic Forum and U.N. Agenda 2030.  Many articles are being published about the globalist agenda being put forward by the World Economic Forum and its megalomaniacal leadership, first and foremost Klaus Schwab, but also including Bill Gates and a mysterious figure Dr. Yuval Noah Harari who boasts a Ph.D. from Oxford in world history and now teaches at a university in Jerusalem. [...] He founded a company called Sapienship with his "husband," and they are committed to finding solutions to world problems in the areas of technological disruption, ecological collapse, and global war.  One of Harari's most radical views is that human beings lack free will.  He wrote in the Guardian, "Unfortunately, 'free will' isn't a scientific reality.  It is a myth inherited from Christian theology.  Theologians developed the idea of 'free will' to explain why God is right to punish sinners for their bad choices and reward saints for their good choices...."  Here, free will is not accepted as an almost universal premise, but is "Christian theology."  Patently, this premise is false.

It's Not Just the FBI: The IRS goes into 'Beast Mode'.  We have seen for some time how off-the-rails the FBI has become, a danger to a free society.  More and more evidence now shows it's not just the FBI.  Every federal employee with a badge and gun seems to think he's a law unto himself.  This week the spotlight is on the IRS, and the Congress has to step up and rein the agency in.  While Matt Taibbi was testifying before Congress on the administration's extensive censoring of social media content, the IRS appeared at his door, ostensibly to question him about his taxes, but obviously to intimidate him for showing up government censorship.

This article is somewhat of an infomercial, but it might still be informative.
IRS Agents Are Watching Your Digital Money Transactions.  If you remember, just two years ago, President Joe Biden asked Congress to authorize the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) data collection on bank accounts with more than $600 in annual transactions.  But banks and depositors pushed back, and the $600 figure was raised to $10,000.  Everybody was happy.  But guess what didn't change?  The reporting of all digital transactions of $600 or more.  That means that digital payment platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, and other Digital Wallets are required to report your transactions of $600 or more to the IRS.

If Amazon Thinks You're a Racist, It Will Shut Down Your Smart Home.  We talk a lot about deplatforming, but when a single corporation doesn't just control a site you use, but controls most of your life, everything from your doorbell to your vacuum, your music and your lightbulbs, and it decides that your politics are bad, you've got problems.  That's exactly the situation that people put themselves in when they rely on Amazon or Google Home to control their smart home only to realize that they no longer control their home.  A touchy corporation that celebrates Pride Month and BLM all year round does.  Beware of offending it.

When are enough Americans going to realize our government is a criminal enterprise?  [Scroll down]  Let's skip Obama's history of privilege, his disrespect for his white grandparents who raised him, his communist indoctrination by an earlier mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, and go directly to his promise to transform America.  He was hugely successful!  He mesmerized his acolytes, his disciples.  We are now essentially a police state with institutions — the FBI, CIA, DOJ, IRS — all operating on the Stalinist model, each an arm of the Marxist/Democrat party.  While these so-called progressives have been undermining our Constitutional and Judeo-Christian values since the turn of the last century (Woodrow Wilson was their patron saint), it was Obama that took the move toward tyranny from gradual to suddenly.  Now we are there.  Surveillance, censorship and control is their goal, the Constitution [notwithstanding].  Our law enforcement agencies have interfered to affect the outcome of the last three elections.  They persecute their political opponents with their typical abuse of the law — lawfare — anyone remotely conservative, anyone perceived as a threat to their power is on their radar for destruction.

They Will Turn On You.  Chairman Mao, the unspoken hero of our garbage ruling caste, understood that power flows from the barrel of a gun, and it's not unreasonable to wonder whether the institutions in America that carry guns — law enforcement and the military — and who are supposed to protect us will turn those guns on us if commanded to by the ruling elite.  Stop wondering.  Their answer is that to a greater extent than those of us who grew up in America, when it was a free country before it became our present crypto-leftist tyranny, want to admit, they will.  Right now, they are hiding news that undermines their rule.  They are censoring opponents.  They are locking up political dissidents.  And eventually, when the current junta feels truly threatened by the emerging backlash from patriotic citizens, too many of these alleged protectors will kill for their masters — and I mean more than just the occasional and totally unpunished massacres of unapproved dissidents like at Waco and Ruby Ridge.  Pretty harsh?  It is harsh, but it's not wrong.  Explain why that is the red line they suddenly stop at when they have blasted through the red lines of lying, of censorship, and of framing the opposition using a two-tier justice system.

Foretelling America's Descent into Totalitarianism.  There is nothing to prevent America from becoming another murderous society like Nazi Germany or communist Russia in the 20th century.  The Biden administration has already begun the march toward totalitarianism with its proposals to arm even larger numbers of federal agency employees, including some 60,000 new IRS agents, and with its political militarization of the DOJ, FBI, and CIA.  As a nation, we are on a path to destruction.  Only a clear understanding of the danger can save us.  It is chilling to hear Biden speak of his "defense of democracy," as he does almost daily, when it is his administration's actions that pose the greatest threat to democratic capitalism.

May I see your (digital) papers, please?  The WHO stated it will "take up the European Union (EU) system of digital Covid-19 certification to establish a global system that will help facilitate global mobility and protect citizens across the world from on-going and future health threats."  Negotiations are ongoing right now, including in the United States as to granting the WHO virtually unlimited "emergency" powers in the event of a real or "potential" health emergency.  The agreements being negotiated grant the WHO broad powers to declare such an emergency.  Any bets that it will use that power?  Once everyone is required to have a digital ID, don't expect it to be limited to health.  A Central Bank Digital Currency and Digital Social Credit Score, impacting basically everything you do, are quick to follow.  Expect "May I see your papers?" to become universal.  The Epoch Times noted, "the new vaccine passport has already drawn criticism, with Australian senator Alex Antic saying in a statement that the move is 'just another conspiracy theory coming true.'"

The Climate Lobby Is Openly Plotting To Steal Our Freedom.  During her May 15 speech to The Beyond Growth Conference held by the European Parliament, European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen, citing a 1970s de-growth plan published by the Club of Rome, made reference to the European Union's "social market economy" five times in a span of less than 150 words.  A "social market economy," of course, is a reference to the sort of central economic planning engaged in by authoritarian socialist governments throughout history.  "And this is exactly why we put forward our European Green Deal," Von Der Leyen told the conference.  "Building a 21st century clean-energy circular economy is one of the most significant economic challenges of our times."  The agenda of the Beyond Growth Conference focused on devising plans to manage the destruction of economic growth that is a centerpiece of the real agenda of the energy transition.

Your Papers, Please.  The World Health Organization is planning to implement a system of digital health passports or vaccination certificates that will be used to limit the travel and activities of citizens in the event another "pandemic" is declared.  The entity doing the declaring will, of course, be the WHO itself.  The ultimate goal is to enroll every human being on the planet in the new system.  Once it is in place, the architects of global governance will be able to restrict the freedom of movement of the populace.  Coupled with a mandatory digital currency (which means the abolition of cash), it will allow the authorities control what people can buy and where they can buy it.  It will eventually force them out of their motor vehicles, after which they may be induced to move to a 15-minute "smart" city and eat the bugs.

Nearly one in three Gen Zers want the government to install surveillance cameras in everyone's homes.  [Scroll down]  To put it mildly, it is ironic that many of the same people who scream, "My body, my choice!" at conservatives are okay with "My home, your domain!" when it comes to the government.  There are reasons why so many young people purport to believe in Socialism...and appear more afraid of true freedom than of Big Government controlling their lives and watching their every move.  Our educational system — indeed, all of our major institutions — has been entirely captured by the left.  Most have led lives of such ease and softness that they are simultaneously filled with guilt and entitlement.  They have no firsthand knowledge of hardship and sacrifice.  They didn't live through the Cold War.  They are no longer taught about the reality of all communist states, or of the 100+ million people who died at the hands of those states in the last century alone.

Gen Z is surprisingly okay with the idea of 1984-style in-home surveillance by government.  I hadn't seen this survey by the Cato Institute until today but it's really striking.  It seems that a shockingly high percentage of Gen Z would be okay with in-home government surveillance.  If that sounds like something out of George Orwell's 1984, that's exactly how CATO saw it. [...] Given that many American high school students read Orwell's 1984 for English classes, Gen Z should be the group who read it most recently.  Did they somehow miss the message of the novel? [...] So maybe the 1/3 of Gen Z that are fans of Marxism don't really see the problem with in-home government surveillance.  As some on the left like to say, government is just the name for things we do together.  It's definitely worrisome that so much of Gen Z is clueless when it comes to some pretty basic ideas built into the foundation of America.  Then again it's a safe bet most of these people hate America and are squarely in the burn it to the ground camp.

MRC Pyramid
When Did Policing Americans' Thoughts Become Part of Homeland Security?  I've had 24 jobs at last count, ranging from three hours delivering pizza for Domino's to 23 years as a U.S. diplomat.  Now, I finally can add the title of Senior "Far-Right" Fellow to my resume.  Of course, that last part is a joke.  So is "The Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization," a diagram displayed by college professor Michael Loadenthal at a seminar called "Extremism, Rhetoric, and Democratic Precarity" at the University of Dayton in 2021.  In the diagram, bedrock conservative institutions including The Heritage Foundation and the Republican Party form the pyramid's base.  Some obscure, far-right organizations, represented by their logos, occupy the top of the pyramid.  Although Loadenthal recently claimed that the chart "is not meant to imply that engaging with level 1 inherently leads to level 4," it's hard to see what else it conveys.  It looks like level 1 (the base of the Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization) leads inexorably to the levels above it unless you take Loedenthal's reeducation seminars.

The Biden administration is using an anti-terrorism grant program to target Americans with conservative and Christian beliefs.  The Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program provided $352,000 to the PREVENTS-OH initiative at the University of Dayton.  Included in the grant application was a chart, "The Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization," which links well-known conservative organizations to neo-Nazis.  Dan Schneider, vice president of the Media Research Center's Free Speech America, MRC Business, and the external affairs division, joined "The Daily Signal Podcast" to explain what his organization discovered.  "They held a conference even before grant funding was provided, where they specifically used this chart and additional charts to train people on how to subvert organizations like The Heritage Foundation," Schneider said.  "And this sounds like such a conspiracy theory.  It sounds crazy that this is happening, but it really is."

The rise of the despotocracy.  Plato favored rule by oligarchs, persons of distinction, but Plato ignored the potential for what Lord Acton observed about power and corruption:  "Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority, still more when you super add the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority."  Oligarchy often deteriorates to despotism because many ambitious men are bereft of the virtues and morals essential to a good ruler and political leader.  An oligarch can be good or bad.  The bad ones become despots, who rule in a cruel or oppressive manner.  The concept of self-governance espoused by the founders requires embracing the principles of stoicism.  We have lost what was advocated by the American founders and led John Adams to wisely assert, "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.  Morality and virtue are the foundation of our republic and necessary for a society to be free."

You Can't Libertarian Your Way Out of Tyranny.  Libertarians and small-government conservatives may not like it, but the cold truth is that reforming a titanic mega-government is impossible without amassing and using State power.  You have to play the game, and play to win.  Your adversaries most certainly do.  You have to play the game at every level, too.  It's important to organize at the local level and win state and county races, but that doesn't count for much in the long run if the gigantic central government is wholly run by aggressive totalitarian statists.

Fourth Reich disseminates ominous new report on 'environmental policy'.  If you said that climate lockdowns would be next, you might be a conspiracy theorist.  If you're making simple observations and drawing basic conclusions about the world around you, you might be a conspiracy theorist.  If you have even the most rudimentary understanding of big government leftism and limited government conservatism, you might be a conspiracy theorist.  If you make a point to remind your friends and family that reality is consistent and historical precedent is a good barometer for future events, you might be a conspiracy theorist.  If you speak up against the regime, you might be a conspiracy theorist.

FDA Bans Farmers from Caring for Their Own Animals Without Costly Vet Approval.  [Traditionally,] ranchers and farmers large and small have taken care of their livestock with antibiotics and antimicrobials that were available at farm stores.  These medicines treat common illnesses and infections that people who own large animals and livestock are very familiar with and qualified to treat.  They have been trusted to do so for as long as these medicines have been available.  The first chicken antibiotics were introduced in 1948. [...] It would be ridiculous to take a chicken to the vet.  When chickens are sick, you consult with other chicken owners and go buy the needed items to make them well again.  It was a good system.  But NOW, the unelected, unaccountable, faceless, nameless, power-hungry monarchs at the FDA have decided that none of our farmers, ranchers, or hobbyists will be allowed to have those medicines anymore without visiting the vet for a prescription.  This will cost the farmers tens of thousands of dollars a year in added vet bills, which they will then pass onto the consumer, forcing prices even higher during a time of record inflation.

DHS funds program that classifies Republican Party as "far right extremist" organization with links to Nazis.  The DHS has a program that identifies groups involved in "violence and terrorism."  It makes grants to organizations to identify groups and monitor what they are doing.  Makes sense.  Part of their job is preventing terrorism, and you have to know your enemy and follow what they are doing.  Among the groups identified by the University of Dayton involved in "far-right radicalization" are the Heritage Foundation, Fox News, and the Republican Party.  Quillette and Dennis Prager's "Prager U" are even more extreme, just shy of the Nazi Party according to their classification of an "extremism" pyramid.  Breitbart, Turning Point USA, and of course, MAGA are similarly identified.

America's Dangerous Shortage Of Free Thinkers.  Our country has become a conformist society where free expression is rewarded with the swing of a truncheon.  We're on a road that leads to repression, and we are not far from the destination.  This nation owes its existence and its never-seen-before prosperity to free thinkers.  The founders were men of the enlightenment.  They stand in stark contrast to our ruling class of today, a corrupt and depraved cabal of politicians, state media, institutional leaders, militant activists and corporate executives that is hurtling us into an era of darkness.  In the 2020s, the only "truth" is what the narrative, invariably fabricated by the worst people who have ever held power and influence in this country's history, says it is.  We see those yard signs, the ones that proclaim their occupants' unwavering grand tolerance and thirst for diversity.  But we know that those who put up those signs are the most intolerant, limited thinkers among us.  They don't believe in diversity of thought.  Their objective is to force conformity to their way of thinking while immodestly displaying their superior virtue.

Looks Like The Brown Face Of White Supremacy Strikes Again.  The alleged neo-Nazi accused of intentionally ramming a U-Haul truck into a White House security barrier has been identified as 19-year-old Sai Varsith Kandula, The Post has learned.  Kandula, of Chesterfield, Missouri, was identified as the man who smashed the box truck — adorned with a Nazi flag — into barriers along Lafayette Square, just steps from the White House, on Monday night, US Park Police officials said.  He has been charged with threatening to kill, kidnap or inflict harm on a president, vice president or family member, as well as assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, trespassing and destruction of federal property, US Park Police said.  [Video clip]

Why We Can't Trust the FBI.  White supremacy, domestic terrorism, and violent extremism are all on the rise, according to the FBI, the news media, and top government officials.  They point to the January 6 Capitol riot, the Patriot Front white supremacists who recently marched in Washington D.C., and yesterday's crash into a security barrier near the White House of a U-Haul truck carrying a Nazi flag.  But there is no evidence that white supremacy, domestic terrorism, and violent extremism are actually on the rise.  By filing multiple January 6 cases rather than a single one, FBI inflated the statistics, as we documented yesterday.  Little is known about the almost entirely masked participants of the Patriot Front, which did not respond to our request for an interview.  And the crash of a 19-year-old man with a Nazi flag into a security barrier is as likely to have resulted from mental illness as political radicalization, as is often the case.

The Editor says...
The "Patriot Front" group appears to be thinly-disguised astroturf.  The 19-year-old who gently "crashed" an empty rental truck into a barrier at the White House appears to be a patsy, much like these guys, and the January 6 riot was apparently an entrapment operation executed by several embedded fellows who look very much like the "Patriot Front" guys, since they're all wearing face masks.  I'm willing to believe they are the very same men.

After Covid: Twelve Challenges for a Shattered World.  [Scroll down]  To muscle the whole population into a particular pattern of action and belief was the core principle of the Covid response.  It was worse than being treated like lab rats: at least scientists don't try to control what the rats think.  It was the ultimate and global experiment in social management under the guise of science.

Education Secretary Cardona Claims Teachers, Not You, Know What Is Best for Your Kid.  Despite Hillary Clinton's idiotic "it takes a village" viewpoint, most Americans believe parents are the final arbiter over their children unless they are demonstrably and dangerously unfit.  The US Supreme Court has stated, "the interest of parents in the care, custody and control of their children — is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court."  In 2020, though, we saw startling revelations of how school systems routinely endangered children by refusing to respect the primacy and even the legitimacy of parental rights.  In Loudoun County, Virginia, we saw how the school system protected sexual predators because they alleged they were "transgender."  We saw a parent arrested for demanding answers about his daughter's forcible sodomizing in a girls' restroom.  We were treated to the pornography mainstreamed into the school curriculum under the guise of "diversity" and "inclusion."  Children have been encouraged to adopt a different gender and lie to their parents about it.  They have been subjected to activities that can only be described as pedophilia grooming exercises.  The more pressure applied by parents and relatively sane elected officials, the more insane these people have become.

Three Times The Left Trampled On Parental Authority This Past Week Alone.  Have you noticed that Democrats and the Left at large are increasingly brazen in their attempt to trample on all parental rights and authority?  This past week alone, we saw three examples of this encroachment from the executive branch all the way down to a Florida teacher.  For example, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made the bold claim last Saturday night that states which have banned sex-denial surgery and other gender-rejection care require an all-hands-on-deck response.  "There are more than 600 pieces of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation out there," Jean-Pierre said at the GLAAD Media Awards.  "A few hundred of them are anti-trans communities, and that matters because we have to call that out.  And we've never seen this level.  It's historic in the number of pieces of legislation."  Perhaps the response is "historic" because it seems like the Left is attempting to convince the world that child mutilation is good and changing "genders" is real for the first time in history en masse.

Reject the Normalcy Bias.  One of the most powerful tactics in the left's arsenal is leveraging the reluctance of conservatives to accept that the foundational reality of our society has changed.  We are not a free country in the sense we were just a decade ago — [indeed], the Durham Report just showed our ruling caste collectively framing a president they disliked and we all know there will be zero consequences.  But part of the reason is human nature.  The left exploits our normalcy bias, the tendency to assume that things right now are the same as they have always been.  Yet, this is not normal.  This whole political/cultural morass that America has fallen into is the opposite of normal.

The Cataclysm to Come.  The FBI is more likely to go after parents at school board meetings than those threatening the homes of Supreme Court justices.  CIA and FBI directors lie under oath without consequence.  They mislead the public and deceive Congress with stories of fake dossiers.  They contract private news organizations to censor stories they do not like and writers whom they fear.  And the IRS is weaponized against political opponents of the Democrats.

The Ominous Reason Why Biden Keeps Repeating His False Claim About a White Supremacist Threat.  As Ben Bartee noted Saturday [5/13/2023], Old Joe Biden's commencement speech at Howard University "included a hearty condemnation of the alleged scourge of White Supremacy in America."  In fact, the alleged president called white supremacy "the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland."  Then on Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary and failed Disinformation Governance Board overlord Alejandro Mayorkas agreed with Old Joe, emphasizing that "domestic violent extremism is our greatest threat right now."  Many other Biden regime officials have said the same thing in the nearly two and a half years now that they have been inflicting themselves upon us.  The reason why they keep making this false claim is clear and ominous. [...] Note how Mayorkas related "anti-government sentiment" to "white supremacy."  Old Joe revealed the game that is being played here last September when he said in his ominous red and black speech that "Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic."  This regime aims to criminalize political dissent, and that will require demonizing and stigmatizing fully half of the electorate.

What the WHO has in store for us.  The brilliant and evil Saul Alinsky, in his seminal book Rules for Radicals, said in Rule 4, "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." We are about to get a critical lesson in how the U.S. Constitution is going to be used to destroy America.  The World Health Organization (WHO) is about to do that by getting "emergency" medical powers to control U.S. "healthcare" and much more.  Sadly, that appears inevitable.  Here are some predictions about what's coming.  Their goal will be to do as much irreversible damage as fast as possible to U.S. health care system.  This is for all the marbles.

When reality hits, it will hit hard.  The work ethic has vanished in large portions of the population.  The military cannot find enough recruits.  We are now at the stage of super-saturation, with corruption, debt, and debauchery leading the list.  All this has come about due to one cause — to keep the government in power, at any cost to the people being ruled.  The impending disturbance that will bring it all crashing down cannot be precisely foretold, but that is because there are so many possible events that it is inevitable that one of them will occur.  One need only look at the headlines to see it.  Black swans abound.  Worse yet, many threats are under-reported, or distorted to conceal their true magnitude.  Is it hopeless?  The short answer is yes.  Nothing in the short term can pay off the debt, restore the work ethic, and return public morals to the levels of sanity.

The age of manufactured crises.  The Biden administration seems to have a desire to keep America in a state of perpetual red alert.  This was inevitable given what happened with COVID-19. Fear was used to coerce people into taking actions that they normally never would have.  It compelled usually sane people into being over-reactionaries.  It turned sensible people into self-appointed social police whose aim was to turn the nation into a prison.  The government saw this and savored the opportunity that it represented.  People were willing to surrender their freedoms out of fear.  Our leaders saw they could shove social change down on us and that a large percent of the population would accept it; even welcome it.  No matter how ridiculous the measures that the government advocated, they knew that most people would follow them.  Remember sneeze guards at the checkout of grocery stores, or lines on the floor at Walmart telling you which way to walk down the aisle?  As idiotic as those things were, how many simply complied?  In short, any crisis is camouflage for government totalitarian actions.  Under the guise of trying to fix an emergency, the government will bypass its checks and balances and stomp on rights as a default action.

We Must Defend Self-Defense.  Their wicked plan is perfectly obvious — to criminalize normal people and normalize criminals.  Thieves, bums, losers, junkies, whores, and other trash — they are the heroes in this morally bankrupt morality play, and we normals are the villains.  The first step to fighting back is to see the truth, and the truth is right there.  You just have to be hard enough to accept it and to not allow them to leverage your empathy or compassion into tolerating having to be afraid as some sort of price you owe for the crime of not being a lowlife.  They want us, quiet, complacent, and obedient.  They want a society where we live in fear.

1 In 4 Canadians Agree With Euthanizing The Poor.  Leftist policies start out seemingly reasonable and compassionate before they become totally monstrous.  Initially, there are sympathetic test cases, they started out with arguing that raped 12-year-olds should be able to get an abortion, and then before you know, it's partial-birth abortion for bored celebrities.  Euthanasia was supposed to help those with fatal illnesses suffering a great deal of pain.  And then, in typical fashion, it morphed into killing teenagers and the depressed.  Where to in the Great North?  How about killing the homeless and the poor?

NY Governor says there's no right to self-defense.  It's hard to find any other interpretation of Gov. Kathy Hochul's latest statement about the death of Jordan Neely; the mentally disturbed New York man who died after being placed in a chokehold by a Marine veteran on a NYC subway after allegedly threatening passengers.  Hochul's been taking heat from progressive activists for not immediately condemning the veteran and convicting him in the court of public opinion, as well as for her first statement after the incident, in which she vaguely spoke about "consequences for behavior".  It was unclear whether Hochul was talking about Neely or the veteran, but in her attempt to clarify her earlier remarks she also made it clear that she doesn't think self-defense is ever justified.

A Grand Alliance to Overcome the Elite Betrayal of America.  For the first time in history, the ruling class of a powerful nation has abandoned its fellow citizens.  What is happening in America today is more than a return to feudalism, although the new economic model into which we're being herded is correctly compared to feudalism.  The reality is actually much worse: America's elites view ordinary citizens as no longer necessary.  Because of globalism, they are replaceable.  Because of automation, they are superfluous.  Because of environmentalism, they are unsustainable.  These factors explain what is otherwise inexplicable: Constitutional conservatives and Christians, and the values they profess, are now stigmatized by establishment institutions as often, if not more often, than they are praised.  Nationalism and religious faith empower individuals and communities to resist a ruling class that has abandoned them.  That makes them a threat.  They recognize that the ideology of America's ruling elites is itself leading to disaster.  They recognize that America's elites have decided the nation's middle class is disposable, and this is the real reason they are pushing an agenda of woke degeneracy and extreme environmentalism, designed to lower birthrates and reduce standards of living.

Conservation groups fight back against Biden admin's 'misguided' regulation efforts on hunting, fishing.  New regulations from the Biden administration, in collaboration with environmentalists, would limit hunting and fishing in multiple states across the country.  The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to publish regulations that would limit the equipment allowed on public refuge properties and expand the area where cost-effective lead ammo and fishing tackle is banned.  International Order of T. Roosevelt (IOTR) Executive Director Luke Hilgemann, is spearheading the effort to get constitutional amendments on the ballot in several states in 2024 to secure the right to hunt and fish across the country.

The 2024 Presidential Election.  America is at a tipping point.  Will we continue the downward spiral into a fascist third-world dictatorship?  Can we change course back to a constitutional republic that values the free will of men and women, freedom of speech and assembly, the rule of law, and equal justice?  Already in the descent to an authoritarian state, free speech is suppressed and thought is censored and replaced by Orwellian New Speak enforced by the thought police.  The free press is transformed into shameless state-run propaganda outlets that run the approved false narrative of the day.  The state takes guns away under the guise of public safety.  The thought enforcers of the state supersede local control of the police.  Scapegoats are created.  Yes, the evil of the 1930s is again rising.

Non-Law Enforcement Agencies Like IRS and EPA Spend Billions on Guns and Ammo, Watchdog Says.  Federal agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service and the Environmental Protection Agency have spent nearly $4 billion in taxpayer funds on guns, ammunition, and other "military-style equipment," a watchdog group found.  Since 2006, "76 rank-and-file agencies" outside "traditional law enforcement entities" or the Department of Defense spent $3.7 billion on "guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment," according to watchdog group Open the Books's summary of its report.  These agencies include the National Institutes of Health, NASA, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Small Business Administration, among others that historically have played little to no role in law enforcement activities.

Ireland about to execute free speech as in "kill it off permanently".  This is really Orwellian.  It shouldn't be happening.  People should be rising in horror at the thought but you know our American Progressives are licking their chops at the thought, and they do dip their toes ever so slightly in the fascist water of hate-speech regulation now and again.

Government without Consent Lacks Legitimacy.  [Scroll down]  A government that long ago abandoned any obligation to seek consent from those it claims to control cannot afford to remind Americans that they were once masters of their own fates.  Doing so would risk inciting the passions of the people and turning those now quietly enslaved against their bureaucratic enslavers.  Is it any wonder, then, that the Department of Justice defines anyone who dissents from official government policy as "extreme"?  Diversity of opinion cannot be tolerated within any system predicated on public obedience for its survival.  The events of our day pick up speed.  There is both an awakening among the American people that they have long been deceived about the health of their freedom and an increased urgency among America's permanent ruling class that a new Iron Curtain of control must drop before that awakening turns into outright resistance.  When government authorities choose control as the source of their power, then totalitarianism is the inevitable result.  Neither freedom nor consent can survive in such a system.

Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace.  The forces determined to monopolize the public square through censorship, lies, and social pressure have devastated universities and scholarship generally, allowed a corrupt public health bureaucracy to ravage our lives, and stuck us with the most incompetent and corrupt leadership in our history.  There are signs that this monopoly is hitting some bumps in the road, and if you are brave enough you can and should help the cause by fighting to keep your right to speak freely.

The Great Silencing: the Weaponization of Loneliness.  They've been working towards this for decades, the psychopaths that run us.  In The Weaponization of Loneliness, How Tyrants Stoke Our Fear of Isolation to Silence, Divide, and Conquer Us, a powerhouse of a book, Stella Morabito points out that between ten and fifteen percent of us are near-psychopaths and they almost always end up in leadership.  Shorn of empathy for anyone but themselves, they see the world as something to master, other people as NPCs, non-playing characters who will obey or die.  They are pitiless and they know best.  I have read no better description of the people destroying our world.  Over and over through history, as Morabito describes, they grab power and destroy the culture, sending it into war and catastrophic depression. [...] Morabito, who spent much of her career at the CIA, and therefore should know, describes in detail the bars of our prison, the walls, the floors, the ceilings, the surveillance devices, the propaganda in its every devious form, and the psychological tricks they are using on us.  Everything has been engineered.  Every single thing you now suffer was planned.  Above all they want you to be lonely, isolated, atomized.  Then you are easy to control.

A Test Case to Expose the Tyranny of the Administrative State.  Let us suppose you draw water and sediment in small quantities from a stream bed.  After removing some solid material, you let the remainder flow back into the stream without adding anything.  Are you polluting the stream?  Common sense dictates one answer.  But an overzealous Idaho green group and a federal court do not see it that way.  So Shannon Poe, a suction dredge miner, ended up paying a $150,000 fine after a citizen suit was brought against him in 2018 by the Idaho Conservation League (ICL).  Technically, the fine, imposed by Chief U.S. Magistrate Judge Raymond E. Patricco in September 2022, was for not obtaining permits for suction mining (NPDES permit IDG370000).  Which means the activity isn't banned outright as polluting.  But before that, Chief U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald E. Bush (see page 11 of his judgement) had determined that "the very nature of Mr. Poe's suction dredge mining added pollutants to the South Fork Clearwater River."  In March this year, Poe appealed the ruling in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.  He is being defended by the pro bono law firm Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF).

SEC Seeks to Impose Costly, Ideologically-Driven Climate Regulations on U.S. Corporations.  Working through the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Biden administration is quietly but persistently implementing global warming (aka "climate change") regulations that will force U.S. corporations to implement costly audit and control procedures for a wide range of CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions that result from their company's operations.  We are witnessing a bureaucratically imposed restructuring of capitalism to comply with an ideologically driven Net Zero Emissions (NZE) policy.  The restructuring aims to impose neo-Marxist "public good" restraints on private corporations through White House-issued executive orders and federal agency rulemaking, not congressional legislation.  Suppose the SEC is successful in this effort.  In that case, the U.S. will join the European Union (EU) in hamstringing U.S.-based corporations with profit-inhibiting accounting requirements certain to constrain profitability — all in pursuit of a demonization of CO2 that fact-based climate science fails to support.  The impact on the Earth's climate will be minimal, but the effects on the U.S. economy could be devastating.

'Water is Not a Human Right': WEF Orders Govt's To Begin Rationing Water Into Homes.  Klaus Schwab has openly bragged about his organization's ability to infiltrate governments across the globe.  At the Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics, he discussed how the WEF's modus operandi is to penetrate governments by installing its "Young Global Leaders."  In recent years, we have seen this modus operandi play out.  The WEF has infiltrated governments across the world, with every left-voting nation firmly under their control.  Make no mistake, these Young Global Leaders, including Justin Trudeau and Emmanuel Macron, are working hand-in-glove with Davos to roll out the globalist agenda of the elite.  Now, in a disturbing development, the globalist elite are claiming that water is not a human right and the world's water supplies must be privatized and controlled by the elites.

House Judiciary FISA Hearing to Examine How Spy Powers Have Been 'Weaponized Against' Americans.  The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday will investigate how Section 702, a law that was designed to help combat terrorism, has been "weaponized against" Americans.  Breitbart News first reported that the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing next week on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) ahead of Section 702's December reauthorization deadline. [...] A routine audit recently found that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Office of National Director of Intelligence (ODNI) of Section 702 use found that FBI agents often had political overtones for their search queries of the FISA database.  This includes "the names of a local political party" to see if it had links to foreign intelligence.  The Justice Department reportedly claimed that FBI personnel "misunderstood" the search procedures and that they were "subsequently reminded of how to correctly apply the query rules."

Getting Off the Roller Coaster to Bondage.  Just as the Mesoamerican Aztecs fought drought with human bloodletting, Western socialists know that a lot of innocent people must die for "hope and change."  No tyrant ever said Utopia comes cheaply.  Russia, China, India, and everywhere else where hydrocarbon energies are still valued as instrumental for prosperity and population growth can just sit back, watch the West commit suicide, and wave. [...] If you object to the coming "green" energy — induced mass starvation, the zealots brand you a "climate denier."  If you prefer diplomacy to nuclear Armageddon, you get labeled a "Russian appeaser" or arrested for spreading "disinformation."  If you prefer free expression to government censorship, you're one tweet away from committing the made-up crime of "hate."

How do we make sure totalitarianism doesn't rear its head again?  [Scroll down]  Since their malevolence has no bounds, they innately know that projection, or accusing their opponents of what they are doing, is a perfect way to confuse the situation and get most people to ignore the argument.  They also know that supposedly having a new system of government and a faux noble cause is a great way to engender false plaudits from most people, as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn once said: "To do evil, a human being must first of all believe that what he's doing is good."  Supposedly saving the planet gives them the cachet to do whatever they want, all for the cause of fighting global cooling, warming, climate change, or whatever climate cause they conjure up.

The Day the Music Died.  [Scroll down]  Recent examples highlight this shift to the authoritarian spectrum, such as the case of Douglass Mackey.  Mackey, also known as meme poster Ricky Vaughn, became famous for his satirical posts that the Left has suggested helped to get Donald Trump elected in 2016.  Mackey most famously created a meme that urged leftist voters to vote for Hillary Clinton by text, a technology that does not exist.  For his efforts, the Eastern District of New York arrested Mackey on Conspiracy Against Rights charges.  Mackey was convicted by a New York City jury and will be sentenced to up to ten years in federal prison.  Critics have noted that Mackey was not the only person to make this satirical joke.  A leftist meme poster named Kristina Wong made an identical joke targeted at Trump supporters in 2016.  As with most authoritarian regimes, political targeting is reserved for the opposition.

No Constitutional Right To Honk Your Car Horn, Court Says.  A federal appeals court says honking isn't First Amendment-protected activity.  There's no constitutional right to honk your car horn, according to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.  The case involves Susan Porter, who repeatedly honked her car horn while driving past protesters in California in 2017.  A deputy with the San Diego County Sheriff's Office issued Porter a ticket, saying she had violated a state law against misuse of car horns.  Porter pushed back, filing a federal lawsuit in 2018.  In it, she alleged that honking her horn in solidarity with the protesters was protected First Amendment activity and that the California law used to ticket her — which prohibits using a car horn except "when reasonably necessary to insure safe operation" or when used "as a theft alarm system" — was unconstitutional.

When Did the U.S. Become East Germany?  What Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrats in general, much of the over-educated, under-experienced academy, and their many followers want is more like the defunct German Democratic Republic, a puppet of the Soviet regime in Moscow and for 45 years a truly miserable place where a few who had power oppressed the many who didn't.  The GDR was home of the Stasi, the violent and murderous secret police who were rightfully feared; barbed wire; guards who shot their fellow humans fleeing to freedom; sons who turned in their fathers who demonstrated only lukewarm loyalty to the state; impermissible dissent; and a lousy economy.  No, there are no snipers in the U.S. waiting to cut down departing expats nor a secret police, though it's reasonable to wonder just what the overtly politicized FBI has become.  When it's not targeting political opponents, it's plotting to spy on religious congregants.  Vast swaths of the public are today afraid to express their views for fear of being canceled, attacked for not toeing the accepted narrative, sued for adhering to their faith.  How long will it be before dissent is criminalized in this country?

With The Barbarians In The Gates, We May Need Our Own Barbarians.  If you have failed to realize we are living through the most significant social, economic, and political revolution in history, it can only be by a herculean effort in self-deception. [...] That our institutions are corrupt and untrustworthy is beyond doubt.  The CDC brazenly lied about natural immunity, masks, gain-of-function research, vaccine effectiveness, and safety; the same DOJ that eviscerated immigration law, repeatedly manufactured false allegations against a sitting president and raided his home.  A New York City attorney general has indicted a former president, all while actual criminals, both on the streets and in the White House, pillage with impunity.  And SCOTUS, our erstwhile constitutional protector, is denounced even by one of its own justices for "reducing constitutional law to policy-driven value judgments until the last shreds of its legitimacy disappear."  Never before has resistance been so futile.  Protestors, without trial, are simply swept away into the D.C. Gulag Archipelago.  Bank accounts are summarily closed.  Wrong speech, if not censored, will cost you your job, or buy you an armed pre-dawn raid to help get your thinking right.  With a $175 billion annual budget, the Department of Homeland "Security" has established the greatest surveillance state ever to have existed outside of the telescreen in Orwell's dystopian novel 1984.

Supreme Court says you need to pay off other people's student loan debt.  The Supreme Court just handed thousands of student loan borrowers a victory.  The nation's highest court ruled on Thursday in favor of $6 billion in student debt relief for 200,000 borrowers — a result of a settlement from a years-long lawsuit now known as Sweet v. Cardona.  The lawsuit was first filed in 2019 under former President Donald Trump on behalf of borrowers with stalled borrower-defense claims, or claims that borrowers can file if they believe they were defrauded by the school they attended.  If approved, their debt would be wiped out.

COVID shutdowns were just the beginning.  Climate lockdowns are next.  [Scroll down]  Now, for clarification "net zero" means total greenhouse gas emissions (including methane) must be less than their removals (such as from planting trees).  The FIRES report instead focused on an absolute zero target because they recognize the absence of novel revolutionary scalable technologies for 1) capture and removal of these gases; and 2) non-fossil fuel mass transportation and energy production.  In other words, if you realistically want to achieve the net zero target by 2050 you essentially have to go for absolute zero.  My twitter thread highlighted the eye-watering points that the strategy required:
  •   All airports in the U.K. except Heathrow, Belfast, and Glasgow to close by 2030.
  •   No flying at all by 2050.
  •   No new petrol/diesel cars by 2030.
  •   By 2050 road use restricted to 60 percent of today's level.
  •   Food, heating, and energy restricted to 60 percent of today's level by 2050.
  •   Beef and lamb to be phased out by 2050.
I said that, apart from the extreme limitations on personal freedom and travel, this means either a colder, hungrier population or massive depopulation.

A Means of Control.  The separation has begun.  Anyone who hopes to live long enough to engage the enemy has to swim upstream against the many ways they have of killing you in your sleep.  You can't go to the doctor for some surgery, because if they know you're unvaxxed, they'll slip in and vax you through your IV, or give you vaxxed blood in surgery.  There is no hesitance in doing the most unethical things when you're paid by the dose, coerced by the establishment or threatened to lose your career.  They're narrowing the lines of nutrition down to a few reliable sources that they control so they can inject food with the mRNA clot shot.  They're about to roll out their Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) to take control of your financial life.  Soon, they'll be able to cut off gasoline purchases if you drive too far, or shut off your car if you're foolish enough to buy one after they put in the kill chip.

For once in your lives fight back!  [Scroll down]  But then, ending mask mandates was as easy as every employee refusing to wear a mask, every customer refusing to put them on.  The Vaxx was easily defeated by people rationally refusing to take an experimental vaccine for a virus that was less deadly than the flu.  Right, none of that happened either, so, once again, when it would only take rational refusal, the idiots, the sheep, the fools will determine my fate, cost me my freedom by their stupid and insipid response to government proposals and demands.  I, like you, am living in a society that will not stand up against the sexualization of our children, the sexual abuse of our kids in their schools where they are not supposed to be learning about sex, but about math, history and science.  They will not stand up against a harmful injection of poison that causes sudden death under extreme physical exertion.  They will not stand up against drag queen story hour in libraries.  If they will not stand up to protect their children, their own lovely offspring, there's no chance they will stand against the digital slavery of the CBDC.

The West Declares War on Itself.  It cannot be stated too often: the most important conflict of our times is that between individual liberty and State control.  National borders, constitutional constraints, legal norms, respect for inviolable rights, and concern for civilian autonomy are evaporating.  Centralized and expansive government control over domestic and foreign populations — without much recognizable distinction separating those two groups — is the State's raison d'être.  People are disposable game pieces for conniving governments to use and abuse.  Call it the implementation of a "new world order" or the "Great Reset" or the West's "Build Back Better" mission to erect a global government with totalitarian-like control, but however it is named, its purpose is nothing less than a war on personhood.  State-sanctioned groupthink will replace free thought; regulated speech will replace free expression; redistributed wealth will replace private property.  The West has, in effect, declared war on its own foundations.

The 'RESTRICT Act' Is About Controlling Online Information By Force.  We have spoken about online censorship, social media silencing content they do not approve of, Google demonetizing websites like ANP that doesn't follow the "authoritative, scientific consensus," but the 'RESTRICT act' takes things to a whole new level.  Stefan Stanford recently described the RESTRICT act, otherwise known as Senate Bill 686, as an attempt at "controlling Internet content," in order to ensure that the "never-ending stream of lies that we've been getting from the government and the mainstream media for the past several decades at least will be the ONLY information that we're 'allowed' to get."

Donald Trump, Tiberius Gracchus, And America's Imminent End.  [Scroll down]  Our Republic has survived for 230 years because most Americans believe in our Constitution and respect the laws that emanate from it.  But the Constitution is nothing more than a piece of paper; it's not a gun, it's not an army, it's not police state stormtroopers.  It's a piece of paper that states how the government should operate, limits that government's power, and guarantees the citizens' various inherent liberties and freedoms.  For most of our history, the Constitution's words guided how our nation operated.  Citizens had two ways to change the way the country was governed:  voting and amending the Constitution.  Today, however, neither works.  The former has been undermined by a Democrat party that steals elections under the cover of night and calls you a conspiracy nut when you notice.  The latter isn't even a consideration because the Democrat party and the apparatchiks running the regulatory and security states are no longer constrained by its words.

Victor Davis Hanson: We're in a Revolution.  The fundamental transformation of America promised to us by then-candidate Barack Obama just days ahead of the 2008 presidential election has come to pass.  President Obama and then-Attorney General Eric Holder intentionally set out to fill the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice with as many liberals as possible.  They worked toward this goal deliberately and methodically.  Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, chronicled their actions in a special investigation series written in 2011 called "Every Single One."  He concluded that the DOJ's Civil Rights Division "was engaging in politicized hiring in the career civil service ranks" and that "it had been unprecedented in scope."

Are You Ready for the Knock on Your Door?  This afternoon, former President Trump surrendered to authorities in New York City.  Soros-funded DA Alvin Bragg performed a legal gymnastic stunt worthy of Cirque du Soleil to bring charges against the former president and leading Republican presidential contender.  Whether or not you like Trump, Americans of every stripe should recognize the dangerous territory the United States has wandered into.  For the first time in American history, a former president has been indicted and arraigned in a clear case of political targeting.  CNN and other liberal media outlets have been running wall-to-wall coverage, breathlessly reporting on every move Trump has made in the last 24 hours.  They're clinging to the hope that Trump will be deprived of his liberty and locked up for the rest of his life on bogus charges that don't pass the smell test. [...] Trump has an army of lawyers and the money to defend himself, but do you?

Is Germany persecuting lockdown sceptics?  For much of the pandemic, Michael Ballweg was a thorn in the side of Germany's pro-lockdown establishment.  Now, the 48-year-old businessman has become one of Germany's most famous prisoners.  Ballweg came to public attention in spring 2020 as the face of the protest movement against the government's strict Covid policies.  His organisation's name, 'Querdenken' (thinking outside the box), quickly became synonymous with opposition to lockdown.  Even today, as the Covid measures imposed by then chancellor Angela Merkel are coming under increasing scrutiny, the term Querdenker, which refers to followers of the Querdenken movement, continues to be used as a slur against anyone deemed too critical of the restrictions.

To Everyone Celebrating Trump's Indictment.  The news of former President Donald Trump's indictment by a Manhattan grand jury has been greeted with unabashed glee by Democrats, corporate media outlets, talking heads, and late-night "comedians."  These people clearly have no idea where this kind of politicized prosecution always leads.  Once a ruling regime convinces the citizenry to accept the criminalization of political opposition, the inevitable result is a one-party state that systematically eliminates individual rights.  That's what Trump means when he says:  "They're not after me.  They're after you."  Those who applaud Trump's indictment, or the other spurious attempts to prosecute him, are cheering for the demise of their own right to democratically choose their elected leaders.

Even If You Hate Trump, You Should Be Standing With Him Now.  On Friday, a 33-year-old Trump supporter named Douglass Mackey was convicted of election interference and faces up to ten years in prison for tweeting pro-Trump memes during the 2016 election.  According to a Friday press release from the "Justice" Department, Mackey faces up to ten years in prison for memes such as this.  Vaughn tweeted a photo of what looked like a Hillary ad, but was actually a parody of a Hillary ad.  The caption read:  "Avoid the line.  Vote from home.  Text 'Hillary' to 59925.  Vote for Hillary and be a part of history."  The Justice Unless You Support Trump Department explained that this was a heinous crime because "Mackey conspired with other influential Twitter users and with members of private online groups to use social media platforms, including Twitter, to disseminate fraudulent messages that encouraged supporters of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to 'vote' via text message or social media which, in reality, was legally invalid."  That sounds terrible, right?  Yet the Justice Department, according to the Post Millennial, "was unable to provide evidence that anyone was deceived by the meme."  What's more, at least one memester on the other side did exactly the same thing, and was never arrested or tried, and faces no prison time.

Russell Brand Debriefs Matt Taibbi With Some Solid New Intel Surfacing About Larger Internet and Social Media Control Operations.  U.K. cultural and political pundit Russell Brand sits down for an interview with U.S. Twitter File journalist Matt Taibbi, to discuss Taibbi's experience with his recent congressional testimony, the advancement of the 'Restrict Act', and new revelations still coming from his exploration into the Twitter communication files.  After some general overview and sense about the issues in/around congress, at 06:45 of the interview Taibbi begins to highlight new information he is discovering about how the Aspen Institute group was organizing, discussing and planning a larger objective about controlling any/all information on the internet.  [Video clip]

Trump Supporter Found Guilty, Faces Ten Years in Prison for 2016 Anti-Hillary Meme.  Donald Trump has been indicted, essentially for the crime of being Donald Trump and opposing the Left's total hegemony over everything.  But as Trump himself has often warned, they're not really after him, they're after us, and he is just in the way.  A 33-year-old Trump supporter named Douglass Mackey discovered the truth of that adage in the worst possible way on Friday, the first day of America as a Leftist banana republic in which foes of the regime are targeted solely for their opposition to that regime.  Mackey was convicted of election interference and faces up to ten years in prison, all because of a meme he tweeted during the 2016 election.  Yes, you read that right:  a meme.

The Warnings Unheeded Now Threaten Our Fundamental Freedoms.  The First Amendment is at a critical juncture.  Recent congressional hearings on the Twitter Files brought the matter into full public view.  Freedom of speech and of the press are hanging by a precarious thread.  Do we want a future in which information flows freely, or one in which an information elite controls those flows "for our own good?"  The choices we make over the next few years will determine which of those futures we get.  It's tragic that we have let the problem reach this dangerous state.  What heightens the tragedy, however, is that the war against America's most cherished freedoms was predictable and preventable.  If those of us who value freedom want to win, we're going to need a strategy grounded in a clear understanding of what's happening and why.  The Twitter Files story is shocking.  Allegations that big tech and social media manipulate information have been around for as long as we've had tech and social media companies.  Allegations of bias among the mainstream media are even older.  In recent years, however, both the allegations and the supporting evidence have ratcheted upward to unprecedented levels.

Anarcho-Tyranny Unleashed in the United States.  The terms anarchy and tyranny seem like they are in contradiction.  Anarchy means no state.  Tyranny means nothing but state.  What possibly could anarcho-tyranny mean?  It's a phrase coined by the right-Hegelian political theorist Samuel Francis, whose dark worldview was never my cup of tea, to say the least.  Even so, he was insightful, especially concerning the ambitions of the left.  He said that if they get their way, the United States and much of the Western world will descend not to "socialism" classically understood but to anarcho-tyranny, which is arbitrary law as the normal way of conducting public life.  No one can count on any rules.  Everything is fluid and constantly changing.  There is only one feature we can expect:  whatever happens, it will be compulsory; that is, backed by the threat of violence.  The violence can be of the mob but it will be behaving as a proxy for power, like the Red Guard under Mao.  When the mob quiets down, powerful public officials step up to pronounce what they did as good or bad depending on the political priorities of the moment.  Bad mobs (those opposing the left) get locked up but good mobs (those who shout down university speakers or trans activists breaking into the Tennessee Capitol) are defended and valorized.

Banana Time for the Rule of Law.  [Scroll down]  That's the way things are in totalitarian societies.  No jokes allowed, especially not jokes told at the expense of the regime.  Thus it is that North Korea banned sarcasm and irony.  Poor Ludvik suffered for his joke.  But he got off easy compared to Douglass Mackey, a social media "influencer" who wrote under the pen name "Ricky Vaughn."  During the 2016 election cycle, Mackey/Vaughn posted a funny meme urging Hillary voters to "avoid the line and vote from home" by texting "Hillary" to a certain number.  Who would be stupid enough to fall for such a joke?  No one.  But his satire was effective enough to get him banned from the pre-Elon Musk era Twitter.  And the feds thought — or said they thought — that it was part of a "plot to disenfranchise black and women voters."  I guess that shows you what they think of black and women voters.

The Trump Indictment Accelerates America's National Divorce.  In the current phase of the cold civil war, states are consolidating.  One-party Democrat states like California and New York are becoming virtual dictatorships, immune to elections and bent on implementing the most extreme agendas of the furthest Left.  Some Republicans, like Gov. Abbot [sic] in Texas and Gov. DeSantis in Florida, have begun fighting back.  That means it's a bad time to be a Republican in New York or a Democrat in Florida.  As bad as the federal abuses of Russiagate were, none of the feds, whose fabled prosecutors can "indict a ham sandwich" actually went as far as DA Alvin Bragg in Manhattan did.  What that means is that blue states and cities are now more lawless, more biased and more ruthless than federal authorities are.  And that makes sense.  The feds occasionally have to answer to and interact with Republicans who play a role in the national government.  Republicans no longer play a role in New York City or New York State.  There are no brakes on someone like DA Bragg lynching political opponents.  It's the federal layer that will really protect Trump here.  DA Bragg has no case, but even if he manages to get this past a Manhattan jury and judge, this will ultimately fall apart, but not because New York's judiciary can be trusted to do the right thing.  It can't.

Man Who Posted Hillary Clinton Meme Found Guilty of Interfering in 2016 Election.  A man who posted memes about the Hillary Clinton campaign during the 2016 presidential election was found guilty of one charge of conspiring against the right to vote on Friday.  "Douglass Mackey, also known as 'Ricky Vaughn,' was convicted today by a federal jury in Brooklyn of the charge of Conspiracy Against Rights stemming from his scheme to deprive individuals of their constitutional right to vote," reads a statement released by the Eastern District of New York on Friday.  Members of the jury reached the unanimous verdict after a little less than a week of deliberation starting Monday afternoon after a week-long period of arguments.

Tucker Carlson Rips DOJ For 'Shocking Attack' On 'Freedom Of Speech' In Internet 'Troll' Conviction.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson ripped the Department of Justice Friday over the conviction of internet "troll" Douglass Mackey for posting memes during the 2016 election.  "After a Manhattan grand jury indicted Joe Biden's rival in the next presidential race, another jury, also in New York, convicted a Republican social media influencer named Douglass Mackey.  What did Mackey do wrong?  Well Douglass Mackey's crime was mocking Hillary Clinton voters online," Carlson, a co-founder of the Daily Caller and Daily Caller News Foundation, said.  "You're seeing on your screen the meme that Mackey posted on Twitter during the 2016 election.  In that meme, Mackey suggests it's possible to vote for president by text message because only Hillary voters could believe something so absurd.  But of course in real life, no one believed that, Mackey's insult did not alter a single vote in the election.  No one has proved otherwise.  The government brought forth not a single victim of this crime.  It couldn't."  [Video clip]

A State of Never-Ending Crisis: The Government Is Fomenting Mass Hysteria.  We have become guinea pigs in a ruthlessly calculated, carefully orchestrated, chillingly cold-blooded experiment in how to control a population and advance a political agenda without much opposition from the citizenry.  This is mind-control in its most sinister form.  With alarming regularity, the nation is being subjected to a spate of violence that terrorizes the public, destabilizes the country, and gives the government greater justifications to crack down, lock down, and institute even more authoritarian policies for the so-called sake of national security without many objections from the citizenry.  This is all part of the Deep State's master plan.  Ask yourselves: why are we being bombarded with crises, distractions, fake news and reality TV politics?  We're being conditioned like lab mice to subsist on a steady diet of bread-and-circus politics and an endless spate of crises.  Caught up in this "crisis of the now," the average person has a hard time keeping up with and remembering all of the "events," manufactured or otherwise, which occur like clockwork in order to keep us distracted, deluded, amused, and insulated from reality.  All the while, the government continues to amass more power and authority over the citizenry.

A.I., Brain Scans and Cameras: The Spread of Police Surveillance Tech.  A brain wave reader that can detect lies.  Miniaturized cameras that sit inside vape pens and disposable coffee cups.  Massive video cameras that zoom in more than a kilometer to capture faces and license plates.  At a police conference in Dubai in March, new technologies for the security forces of the future were up for sale.  Far from the eyes of the general public, the event provided a rare look at what tools are now available to law enforcement around the world: better and harder-to-detect surveillance, facial recognition software that automatically tracks individuals across cities and computers to break into phones.  Advances in artificial intelligence, drones and facial recognition have created an increasingly global police surveillance business.  Israeli hacking software, American investigation tools and Chinese computer vision algorithms can all be bought and mixed together to make a snooping cocktail of startling effectiveness.

Finance and the 'Great Reset'.  Big Tech, Big Pharma, Big Academia, Big Government, and its Media Complex have all failed us.  Now Big Finance, which is made up of "too big to fail" banks — such as JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo — appear ready and willing to help the Fed roll out a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).  CBDCs will be presented as a technological development that provides more convenience and security than physical currency.  But make no mistake a CBDC is more social control than currency.  A CBDC would end freedom and the privacy of consumer choice in the U.S.  It would politicize the economy — distorting and undermining the efficient allocation of resources by directing capital to government-favored sectors and defunding out of favor industries.  Just two weeks after the failure of two major banks — Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, and the forced bailout of a third, First Republic Bank — the second largest cluster of bank failures in American history, the Fed undertook "stabilization" measures that will benefit large money center banks at the expense of smaller banks.

The one-world beast system is roaring into reality, but is anyone listening?  [Donald] Trump is the perfect polarizing figure to distract Americans at this key moment in history.  Keep your gaze on him and you're guaranteed to miss the bigger picture.  This has to do with the fast-approaching beast system, which is marching us toward World War III and economic slavery through cashless payment systems, 24/7 biometric surveillance and even death.  Yes, World War III and mRNA injections will provide the global culling of human populations that Bill Gates, Henry Kissinger, the Rockefellers and other powerful interests have been advocating for decades.  With that background, let's get to the main point of this article:  Cashless electronic payment systems that feed on your personal biometric data.  Last week we learned that the restaurant chain Panera Bread is rolling out a new biometric payment option offered by Amazon where customers have their palms scanned with no cash or credit cards necessary.  Now JP Morgan has announced it's also rolling out a new biometric payment system with plans to make it available to all the retail businesses it deals with. [...] As WEF advisor Yuval Noah Harari has already warned us, the next stage in the global technocracy movement is for 24/7 surveillance tools to go "under the skin."  I'm old enough to remember when debit cards were controversial and now we're scanning people's body parts as a mode of payment.  This is just part of the long-planned, incremental evolution toward the full-on cashless society that "conspiracy theorists" have been warning about since at least the 1980s.  They were not wrong; they were just ahead of their time.  The way to defeat this beast, or at least slow it down, is not politically through human messiah figures, but personally through our own human agency.  We must resolve to never comply with these systems.

Jesse Waters Tells Senator Lindsey Graham He's Listed as a Co-Sponsor on the Restrict Act — Graham Has No Idea.  This is a little funny, and simultaneously very sad.  Folks, this is the state of legislative affairs in Washington DC, this is exactly what it was like when I was asking these types of questions.  Senator Lindsey Graham is listed as one of the Republican co-sponsors for Senate Bill 686, the Restrict Act, aka the TikTok ban act.  Fox News host Jesse Waters goes through the bill on live television and then asks Senator Graham why he co-sponsors it.  Lindsey Graham has no idea.  [Video clip]

The RESTRICT Act Is Exactly What It Sounds Like.  The RESTRICT Act is the very definition of a Trojan horse: innocuous on the outside, lethal on the inside.  And it is being wheeled toward the gates, with the help of Republicans in Congress.  Ostensibly, the RESTRICT Act is designed to protect Americans from TikTok — you know, that nifty piece of Chinese spyware masquerading as a fun way to showcase dance videos, asinine behavior, and other things people can live without.  And Congress is interested in protecting the country from bad international actors.  That is because it can be done via the RESTRICT Act, which will do far more than keep TikTok off of your phone or tablet.  How much more?  More than you want or even thought possible, even under this administration.  The RESTRICT Act goes after anyone whom the powers that be deem a threat.  That determination is made by the secretary of commerce.  A threat can include people abroad and U.S. citizens.

The RESTRICT Act did not surface in a vacuum.  [Thread reader]  The "TicTok ban" legislation (SB686), which is a fraudulent auspice for total internet control by the intelligence community, comes from within bipartisan legislation spearheaded by the aligned interests of Senator Warner, the SSCI and DHS.  None of this is accidental, and the legislative branch is walking into the creation of an online control mechanism that has nothing whatsoever to do with banning TikTok.  Preceding the Restrict Act, on March 2, 2023, the people in control of the Joe Biden administration officially announced that government control of internet content was now officially a part of the national security apparatus.  If you have followed the history of how the Fourth Branch of Government has been created, you will immediately recognize the intent of this new framework.

Could the RESTRICT Act Criminalize the Use of VPNs?  Would the RESTRICT Act — a.k.a. the TikTok ban bill — criminalize the use of VPNs?  That's the rumor floating around about the legislation, which was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) earlier this month.  Warner's office has said his bill wouldn't do this, but its broad language leaves room for doubt.  And the act is still insanely far-reaching and could have a huge range of deleterious effects, even if it doesn't criminalize people using a VPN to access TikTok.

New Mexico School Boards Association Administrator: Parents Have No Rights In Public Education.  A New Mexico School Boards Association instructor sees no role for parents in guiding their children's public school education.  On Tuesday, the parental rights group "Freedom Families United" published audio tape of a New Mexican school board administrator speaking to members of local school boards.  "Parents do not have a fundamental right to tell you how public school teaches their child," New Mexico School Boards Association Trainer Andrew Sanchez said in December.  "Parental rights end when you decide to send your kids to public school.  What you teach this generation that will soon be voting are going to be instrumental to the future of us as a democracy and as society goes forward."

Socialism in Our Schools.  Over the past several decades, we have gotten so used to government in our lives that we do not even consider that there might be other ways to deal with issues.  In our town, our public hospital is the largest industry in the county.  Little by little, our hospital has taken over local clinics and some medical offices, such that almost all medical care has some relationship to the hospital, and thus hospital policies.  Whatever the hospital requires of its staff and patients, it also requires of the regional clinics.  Now this same hospital is going to become a 501(c)(3) organization so that the citizens of our county will have nothing to say about what the hospital does.  It does not seem to appear to anyone that in the past, most hospitals were private, or owned and directed by religious and charitable organizations.  The more centralized the hospital becomes, the more control it has over the lives of the patients who use the hospital.

Biden Regime Even Wanted to Censor Private Text Messages.  The Biden regime has already abundantly established that it has no patience for dissent.  The Twitter Files show regime lackeys pressuring Twitter, along with other social media giants, to silence people who dared question, among other things, its COVID-19 narrative — yes, the one that has been shown to have been full of holes all along.  But as is so often the case these days, it gets worse.  Now it has come to light that the Biden White House actually pressured Meta to censor private WhatsApp texts that dared to express disagreement from the regime's line.  Yes, private texts.

American Tyranny?  Perfectly Normal.  Abortion is a clear example of normalization.  It became a hot topic decades ago, talked about in news, on social media, in Hollywood (desensitization phase).  Terms were revamped (language control phase).  Now it's "women's health," not "abortion," "pro-choice," not "pro-abortion," "fetuses" and "clumps of cells," not "babies."  Over time, killing one's own child was no longer untenable, but a normal part of society, even seen as a woman's right.  Using these same tactics, homosexual and transgender behavior once recognized as "abnormal" (3%) has also been mainstreamed.  Again, it was gay rights everywhere — the news, entertainment, parades (phase 1).  Again it was language appropriation, where behavior outside the norm can no longer be called abnormal, where a man with a male physique who says he's a really a woman cannot be called delusional (phase 2).  Indeed, words like "abnormal" or "delusional" are now hate speech.  If you dare speak these words, you'll be ostracized by groups, labeled a homophobe, a hate-monger.

New Report Shows Extensive Biden Admin Collusion to Classify Parents as Terrorists.  A new report published by the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government and House Judiciary Committee shows extensive collusion between the Biden administration and the National School Board Association.  The partnership came as the group drafted a letter calling on the Department of Justice to classify parents as domestic terrorists.  The letter also asked Attorney General Merrick Garland to use the Patriot Act, implemented after 9/11, to go after parents expressing criticism over school lockdowns, critical race theory and inappropriate sexual content in the classroom.  "Internal Executive Branch documents indicate that the Biden Administration's use of federal law-enforcement and counterterrorism resources is an example of government weaponization against American parents.  If the Justice Department performed any due diligence prior to the issuance of the Attorney General's memorandum, it would have understood clearly and forcefully that federal intervention was unwarranted.  Because that due diligence did not occur — and the Administration acted out of political motivations rather than for law-enforcement reasons — parents around the country had FBI "assessments" opened into them," the report states.

The Worst Prison Is the One You Don't Know You're In.  In Schwab's technocracy, the rulers won't send you to a physical gulag.  An algorithm will declare your opinions to be hate speech or racist, and you'll find yourself in a digital gulag, cut off from your bank account, employment, housing and from buying and selling.  In China, they "disappear" people.  We haven't gone that far in the West.  Instead, as we saw during COVID, those who disagree are slandered, silenced and removed from positions of authority.  For example, think of the treatment of the thousands in the medical community who signed the Great Barrington Declaration, opposing lockdowns, masking, vaccine mandates and passports, and other COVID-era rules and restrictions.  Did these scientists get fair play on the evening news, or were they ignored and silenced by social media companies?  Have these 14,000 scientists been exonerated?  Nearly every one of them was a victim of cancel culture.

The U.S. Government Is Building A Vast Surveillance And Speech Suppression Web Around Every American.  Our government is preparing to monitor every word Americans say on the internet — the speech of journalists, politicians, religious organizations, advocacy groups, and even private citizens.  Should those conversations conflict with the government's viewpoint about what is in the best interests of our country and her citizens, that speech will be silenced.  While the "Twitter Files" offer a glimpse into the government's efforts to censor disfavored viewpoints, what we have seen is nothing compared to what is planned, as the details of hundreds of federal awards lay bare.  Research by The Federalist reveals our tax dollars are funding the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) technology that will allow the government to easily discover "problematic" speech and track Americans reading or partaking in such conversations.  Then, in partnership with Big Tech, Big Business, and media outlets, the government will ensure the speech is censored, under the guise of combatting "misinformation" and "disinformation."

Federal Reserve announces July launch of central bank digital currency infrastructure.  The Federal Reserve on Wednesday announced a July launch of its FedNow service, which will enable all U.S. banks to offer instant payments 24/7, and will constitute the infrastructure of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) by linking each banking node directly to the Federal Reserve, according to financial experts.  FedNow "will enable all the banks — any bank in the United States, not just the big ones — to offer instantly available funds in real-time payments to their customers", explained Fed Chair Jerome Powell before the House Financial Services Committee on March 8.  According to a Federal Reserve press release, "many early adopters" plan on using the FedNow service in July upon its launch, "including a diverse mix of financial institutions of all sizes, the largest processors, and the U.S. Treasury."

The FBI Showed Up on the Behest of Pfizer to Question a NY Woman About Her Anti-Vax Comments on Social Media.  Three days ago, the FBI paid a visit to a woman in New York following a complaint from Pfizer about her anti-vax comments on social media.  During the interrogation, the FBI repeatedly asked the woman the same questions, seemingly in an attempt to irritate her.  The agents' demeanor was described as stand-offish, adding to the woman's frustration.  Unfortunately, we do not have any further details at this time, and it's unclear why the FBI was involved in this matter.  [Video clip]

Hochul Goes Full Despot with Maoist-Like Quarantine 'Procedures'.  On March 10, Brownstone Institute Fellow Bobbie Anne Cox was the lead plaintiff attorney in challenging New York Governor Kathy Hochul's "Isolation and Quarantine Procedures." Without proof of exposure to a communicable disease, Hochul's procedures allowed the Department of Health to pick and choose which New Yorkers to quarantine.  One can imagine how this would be used against political opponents.

It's up to states and counties to fight the World Health Organization.  There is an urgent immediate need for specially crafted county ordinances and state laws to protect American citizens from the totalitarian dictates of the international World Health Organization (WHO). As early as May 2023, due to a voluntary loss of U.S. sovereignty by the Biden administration, the WHO will have authority to dictate medical practice and treatments in America under WHO-declared pandemic situations, which can be manufactured at will by WHO supporters and intermediaries.  In other words, WHO "elite" leaders and supporters (who include the Chinese Communist Party) will be able to dictate what American physicians, hospitals, health care workers, etc. can and cannot do during a pandemic.  It is well documented that the so-called global "elites" plan to establish a one-world government (the "Great Reset") primarily through the health dictates and mandates of the WHO.  For all concerned patriotic Americans, this is an untenable development that must be fought tooth and nail.

Australia to Become The First Country Since China To Implement A Digital-ID and Surveillance State.  Ministers from Australia's federal government have agreed to a deal with their state and territory counterparts to include digital credentials in the new national digital identity system, reports the Australian Financial Review.  The agreement paves the way for driver's licenses and occupational credentials to be recognized across the country, and to store their credentials in a digital wallet, all based on international standards.  "The move to bring identity and credentials together is world leading," NSW Digital Minister Victor Dominello told AFR Weekend.  He credits federal finance minister Katy Gallagher for bringing the sides together.

People Behind Biden Announce Creation of Formal National Surveillance State, Yet No One Seems Bothered.  On March 2, 2023, the people in control of the Joe Biden administration officially announced that government control of internet content was now officially a part of the national security apparatus.  If you have followed the history of how the Fourth Branch of Government has been created, you will immediately recognize the intent of this new framework.  The "National Cybersecurity Strategy" aligns with, supports, and works in concert with a total U.S. surveillance system, where definitions of information are then applied to "cybersecurity" and communication vectors.  This policy is both a surveillance system and an information filtration prism where the government will decide what is information, disinformation, misinformation and malinformation, then act upon it.  In part, this appears to be a response to the revelations around government influence of social media, the Twitter Files.  Now we see the formalization of the intent.  The government will be the arbiter of truth and cyber security, not the communication platforms or private companies.  This announcement puts the government in control.

The FBI Targeted Patriotic Conservatives Exercising Their First Amendment Rights:  'They're All Bleeping Terrorists'.  Antifa?  Black Lives Matter?  Come on, man!  You'll find it comforting to know that the FBI has been busy tracking the real terrorists that threaten the safety of every decent, law-abiding American today: people who traveled to Washington for Trump's rally against election fraud on Jan. 6, 2021, and Americans who dare to oppose the relentless sacrifices to Moloch that are the cornerstone of the Democrat Party's program.  The FBI has become so thoroughly corrupt and politicized that its agents apparently have no problem serving as attack dogs for the Left's sinister agenda.

It Looks as if the Justice Department Probably Has Spies in Catholic Churches.  In a heated exchange with Gestapo chief Merrick Garland at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) directly challenged Garland's viciously corrupt and politicized "Justice" Department, and zeroed in on the once-respected agency's targeting of traditionalist Roman Catholics.  While Garland maintained, in the teeth of the available evidence, that the department is not actually targeting Catholics, he claimed not to know how many spies and informants the feds have in those hotbeds of terrorism, traditional Catholic parishes.  In other words, he didn't say they didn't have any such spies and informants.  So if you're Catholic, be watchful:  the guy in the pew behind you could be taking notes.

Is Resistance Futile?  The various components of our society — political and military leadership, corporate America, the medical/pharmaceutical field, and our judicial and electoral systems — seem to have been absorbed into a collective, even if we are not completely certain as to their full leadership.  The WEF?  China?  Cartels?  Democrat-Marxists?  Or a collection of them all?  The "Present-Day Borg" (PDB) used the COVID pandemic and lockdowns, and later the vaccines, to gain control over every aspect of our lives.  Our energy, water, and food supplies are under attack from our current administration (either willing traitors or plain incompetents) or through saboteurs coming across our wide-open borders.  Their control of our schools offer our children dumbed down educations with altered history, sexual confusion, and a complete absence of creative or logical thinking.  Our scientists have been co-opted to produce pre-determined results that advance the false narratives like "global warming," while any evidence to the contrary is "fact-checked" as false.  They intimidate through lies and deception, using our own legal system to accuse others of false crimes to silence opposition.  Their use of technology to brainwash and overpower us — Big Tech propaganda, censorship, and surveillance — is very Borg-like.

Can the Biden Administration Force Us to Let the World Health Organization Call the Shots When There Is a Pandemic?  [Scroll down]  The zero draft appears to endow the WHO with the authority to "declare and manage a global pandemic emergency," according to the Epoch Times.  "Once a health emergency is declared, all signatories, including the United States, would submit to the authority of the WHO regarding treatments, government regulations such as lockdowns and vaccine mandates, global supply chains, and monitoring and surveillance of populations."  David Bell, a public health physician and a former WHO staffer, told the news outlet that these people "want to see a centralized, vaccine-and-medication-based response, and a very restrictive response in terms of controlling populations."  He added: "They get to decide what is a health emergency, and they are putting in place a surveillance mechanism that will ensure that there are potential emergencies to declare."  This is part of a two-pronged approach to global pandemics.  The World Health Assembly launched an initiative to develop new global pandemic regulations that would also overrule the laws of member states.  "The World Health Assembly is the rule-making body of the WHO, comprised of representatives from the member states," the Epoch Times explained.  "Both [initiatives] are fatally dangerous," said Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law.  "Either one or both would set up a worldwide medical police state under the control of the WHO, and in particular WHO Director-General Tedros."

The Greens Aren't Just Coming for Your Gas-Powered Car — They're Coming for All Cars.  Late last month, Joe Biden was mocked for posting a photo of himself in an electric vehicle (a GMC Hummer) that costs $110,000 and up.  And for touting a $7,500 federal tax credit that doesn't apply to vehicles that cost over $80,000. In other words, the 46th president was ripped for confirming the stereotype that electric cars are a vanity passion for rich green liberals.  But what was less noticed, at least by the right, was that left-wing greens didn't like Biden's photo-op, either.  You see, Middle Class Joe insists that he wants to replace internal-combustion vehicles with electric vehicles (EV), but the hardcore greens — including those within his own administration — want to get rid of cars, period.

Don't Bow Down to a Dictatorial Government.  America Is a Prison Disguised as Paradise.  Government eyes are watching you.  They see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact, when you wake up in the morning, what you're watching on television and reading on the internet.  Every move you make is being monitored, mined for data, crunched, and tabulated in order to amass a profile of who you are, what makes you tick, and how best to control you when and if it becomes necessary to bring you in line.  When the government sees all and knows all and has an abundance of laws to render even the most seemingly upstanding citizen a criminal and lawbreaker, then the old adage that you've got nothing to worry about if you've got nothing to hide no longer applies.  Apart from the obvious dangers posed by a government that feels justified and empowered to spy on its people and use its ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and technology to monitor and control them, we're approaching a time in which we will be forced to choose between bowing down in obedience to the dictates of the government — i.e., the law, or whatever a government official deems the law to be — and maintaining our individuality, integrity and independence.

Canadian Police Seek Law Forcing People To Hand Over Computer Passwords.  The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) want computer users to hand over their encrypted passwords.  At their annual conference on Tuesday, the CACP passed a resolution demanding a new law that would force people to hand over their computer passwords with a judge's consent.  Joe Oliver, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said that criminal behavior goes undetected online because perpetrators are "going dark," hiding behind the anonymity of the internet.  "The victims in the digital space are real," he said.  "Canada's law and policing capabilities must keep pace with the evolution of technology."

Britain risks 'sleepwalking into a surveillance state' — CCTV watchdog.  The UK has too many CCTV cameras and the public is ignorant of the true extent of snooping, the government's surveillance tsar has warned.  Tony Porter, the UK's Surveillance Camera Commissioner, said many of Britain's millions of cameras are useless when it comes to combating crime.  In a biting critique, he said Europeans are shocked the British public readily accepts the number of cameras we have, adding we need a public debate and greater regulation.

Democrats Pass Laws to Destroy Suburbs.  In the name of "equity," the Biden administration and state Democrats have declared war on the suburbs:  ["]The Biden administration and Democrats in New York, Connecticut and other states are fighting local zoning laws in order to build high-rise apartment buildings with "affordable" units in tree-lined, single-family neighborhoods.  All in the name of equity, meaning everyone can live in a tranquil suburb, whether they've earned the money to pay for it or not.  The Biden administration announced Jan. 19 that it will require all towns across the U.S. to submit "Equity Plans" showing how they will make it possible for low-income people to live there by providing affordable housing, transportation and other resources.  Towns that don't meet the cookie-cutter requirement for economic diversity will lose federal funding.["]  The left's seething hatred of the suburbs is readily apparent in popular culture, where movies regularly portray these tranquil, tree-lined neighborhoods as hotbeds of racism, repression, sexual dysfunction, and hatred.

The Left's Righteous Tyrants.  Tyrants once rose to power the old-fashioned way:  defeating the opposition on the battlefield or at the faux ballot box.  Despite their atrocities, these despots at least had some swagger — perhaps a way with the ladies, a good sense of humor, strong persuasive abilities, commanding verbal skills, pride in their appearance.  Not so with modern-day martinets.  Our 21st-century tyrants possess nothing more than useless degrees from woke institutions and deep contempt for at least half the country, likely born out of a lifetime of social isolation.  History, after all, shows that outcasts often seek revenge against their childhood tormentors later in life.  Such appears to be the case with the former Twitter executives who testified before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.  Unimpressive by every measure — looks, personality, intellect, persuasiveness, grasp of the facts — the Twitter Four should serve as a reminder of what the defenders of freedom are up against.  Thankfully, our enemies, while powerful for now, have the mental, physical, and emotional appeal of overcooked spaghetti.

CVS fires nurse for refusing to violate her religious beliefs.  Despite accommodating nurse practitioner Robyn Strader's religious beliefs for more than six years, CVS fired her on October 31, 2021 after suddenly deciding that the Christian religion was no longer valid and no employees could cite it when it came time to prescribe drugs.  ["]Robyn worked at a CVS MinuteClinic in Keller, Texas since 2015. Robyn sought a religious accommodation because prescribing any medications that could intentionally end the development or life of an unborn child would force her to violate her beliefs.  For six-and-a-half years, the company accommodated her without a problem. [...] ["] Strader is now suing, with the non-profit legal firm First Liberty representing her.  The complaint demands Strader's full restitution, including back pay and punitive damages, noting that such a policy not only violates federal civil rights law, it also violates several Texas laws, including one that protects employees from religious discrimination and a second that exempts medical personnel from participating in abortion or abortion-related procedures if his or her religion forbids it.

Democrats know fences work.
Fence Goes Back Up At Capitol Ahead Of Biden SOTU Address.  Democrats claim walls don't work and are racist, except when they think they need them.  Ahead of Biden's state of the union address on Tuesday night, the fence has gone back up at the Capitol Building.  The same fencing Democrat put up after J6.  What's the point?  Who are they trying to keep out?

Gov't Documents Reveal CDC Is Building Huge 'List' of People Who Refuse Vaccines.  People who refuse Covid-19 vaccinations are put on a list and tracked by the the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to bombshell federal government records.  According to the shocking video obtained by National File, unvaccinated people are quietly tracked when they go to the doctor's office or to the hospital due to a quiet new program proposed and implemented by the CDC.  The new program is designed to "track people who are not immunized or only partially immunized."  Doctors will now report those who refuse COVID vaccination as delinquent in a huge database.  They will do this by using ICD-10 codes.

Now the Left Is Coming for Your Pickup Trucks, America — and Their 'Logic' Couldn't Be More Ridiculous.  Rather than "only" coming after our evil, planet-destroying passenger cars, the left is targeting our pickup trucks as well, my fellow Americans.  Moreover, the idiocy is neither new nor driven only by the left's hatred of internal combustion engines.  As I first reported in January 2021 — and this is laugh-out-loud hysterical — pickup trucks not only brazenly project "petromasculinity"; they're also the personification (or would that be "truckification"?) of "glorification of violence and domination."  Incidentally, one of the many benefits enjoyed by conservative political pundits is never having to make [stuff] up; the left's got you covered on a regular basis.

The Editor says...
"Petromasculinity" made automobiles feasible, and made America a superpower, beginning in about 1942.

None Dare Call It Treason; None Dare Call Them Traitors — Part one.  In today's climate - in the political Left's version of America and its present environment - if you question a vote/election outcome - no matter the empirical observations of corruption readily made - in words far softer than high-profile Democrats' words in the past regarding elections, theft, so-called illegitimacies - you're an "insurrectionist," and an enemy of "democracy."  If you simply believe in "The Land of the Free, the Home of the Brave" you are dangerous, and an "enemy."  If you believe in a cohesive country, not one sliced and diced into "victims" and "victimizers," not one where every special-interest group gets to blast their bright lights into your face (adherents to LGBTQIA+, BLM, CRT, ESG, NWO, WEF, etc.) you are a racist, a sexist, a misogynist, a neo-Nazi, or just a Nazi, alt-Right...  a bad person.  You can even be gay, etc., and NOT supporting of the burgeoning MAP movement ("minor attracted persons"), and you are antithetical to the madness of the Left, and the Democrat party, and therefore an enemy.  Well.  This is inarguable:  If our government calls any of us "enemies," then surely that government becomes an enemy to those people.  That is not a seditious statement:  That is simply fact.  Only fools would relax within a government's definition of them as "enemies."  And it can happen to anybody: political persuasions and parties are no protection.  We've already slid into Banana Republic territory with the Trump raid, and we're accelerating our slide into a socialist/communist/totalitarian hellhole by the day.

Feds adapting AI used to silence ISIS to combat American dissent on vaccines, elections.  The government's campaign to fight "misinformation" has expanded to adapt military-grade artificial intelligence once used to silence the Islamic State (ISIS) to quickly identify and censor American dissent on issues like vaccine safety and election integrity, according to grant documents and cyber experts.  The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded several million dollars in grants recently to universities and private firms to develop tools eerily similar to those developed in 2011 by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in its Social Media in Strategic Communication (SMISC) program.  DARPA said those tools were used "to help identify misinformation or deception campaigns and counter them with truthful information," beginning with the Arab Spring uprisings in the the Middle East that spawned ISIS over a decade ago.

California Lawmakers Move to Tax People Who Have Left the State.  California lawmakers appear intent on making the Eagles song Hotel California a reality[,] at least when it comes to taxes for those who try to flee the state.  At the Hotel California, "you can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave!" With soaring costs and a massive $24 billion deficit, the state is also facing an exodus of people leaving the state.  The solution?  Convert the state into a tax Venus flytrap:  not only impose a wealth tax on those caught in the state but tax those who try to leave.  The new bill introduced by Democratic Assemblyman Alex Lee would impose an extra annual 1.5% tax on those with a "worldwide net worth" above $1 billion, starting as early as January 2024.  The law has a cynical bait-and-switch provision.  The billionaire tax is just meant for the initial packaging and passage.  It can therefore be sold as a "billionaire's tax."  However, in two years, the threshold drops to a worldwide net worth exceeding $50 million.

Neil Oliver Discusses the Climate Change Quest for Utopia.  For his weekly monologue, Neil Oliver outlines the insufferable fools that are constructing the path to Agenda 2030 and the World Economic Forum dictates that form the baseline to "save the planet" from climate change.  As you listen or read the word picture that Oliver paints, you might remember the CTH article from over a decade ago about what the "fundamental change" Barack Obama was outlining, really meant.  Well, here we are, a decade closer to the utopian goal — and the picture is now close enough for all to see.  [Video clip]

Tony Blair Wants National Databases to Track Vaccination Status for a 'Whole Slew' of Future Vaccines.  Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair called for a "digital infrastructure" to track vaccination status at Davos 2023.  A conference hosted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) is indeed an appropriate venue for Blair's most inappropriate demand, since WEF previously released its plan for a digital ID required to do or buy anything.  "You need to know who's been vaccinated and who hasn't been," Blair exclaimed.  "You've got to have the proper digital infrastructure."  WEF's digital ID would essentially be a social credit score, as the ID would be required to access social media and government benefits, vote, open bank accounts, book travel, shop, access healthcare and insurance, own electronic devices, and make online purchases, among many other applications.  If you want to know how that turns out, look at Communist China.  WEF has already partnered with the Dutch and Canadian governments to roll out a digital ID, and Tony Blair seems to be ready, willing, and eager to assist WEF as well.

During Remarks at World Economic Forum FBI Director Chris Wray Talks About Success in Combatting Pre-Criminal Activity.  The FBI is a criminal investigative agency.  Meaning, a crime is committed, and the FBI mission is to investigate it, solve it, and bring the information to the justice department for pursuit.  At least that was the customary role of the FBI as it was/is commonly discussed.  However, please note that in Director Wray's remarks, every element of the FBI mission is framed around "prevention" of criminal activity, or what we would call pre-crimes. [...] Now, what I am asking readers to do is to realize when the fundamental mission of an investigative agency changes from investigating the aftermath of criminal activity, to the prevention of criminal activity, we as a society open ourselves up to having severe restrictions on our liberty.  After all, just about everything that we now see as an infringement on freedom, is some form of a proactive action by government.  Change the mission from the investigation of crime to the prevention of crime, and the entire apparatus of the mission fundamentally changes.  Criminals are no longer the target when you are preventing crimes.  Criminals are only targets in the aftermath of crime.  When you are preventing crime, everyone that could commit a crime is the new mission target.  Everyone, regardless of their connection to — or association with — criminal activity, is now a potential criminal.  Potential criminals must be monitored.  Potential criminals are now the target.  You are a potential criminal.

Has COVID Backlash Sparked a Movement?  Friends of freedom generally agree about four points:
  [#1]   Protections for expansive individual liberty and respect for limited government are essential for the promotion of human rights, self-determination, and prosperity.
  [#2]   Over the course of American history, the U.S. government has strayed far beyond the original limitations of its enumerated powers as set forth in the Constitution.
  [#3]   Globalism, international government, plutocracy, rule by "elite" experts, unchecked bureaucracy, and the steady erosion of inalienable rights all work to maximize the power of centralized authority while minimizing the power of individual citizens.
  [#4]   The most important conflict raging today is between individual liberty and coercive State control.
Where defenders of liberty disagree is in their assessment of the future.  Some believe that so much ground has now been lost in humanity's centuries-long struggle for freedom that centralized government control over each individual is all but certain.

Will Joe Biden's latest COVID 'big con' spark a second American Revolution?  The Stamp Act was used to impose tyrannical authority of the British aristocracy on colonials, the proto-Americans.  COVID was the hammer Democrats employed to impose their will on We the People.  Using a spurious COVID health crisis as justification, Washington elites suppressed the Bill of Rights, imposed quasi-martial law, and re-imposed a tyranny we rebelled against 247 years ago. Evidence clearly shows that Washington consistently lied about COVID — it was magnificent scam.  They ginned up a virus that was as dangerous to most Americans as the seasonal flu — it was not bubonic plague.  COVID was a danger only to the immunocompromised and the elderly.  Numbers of "COVID deaths" were greatly exaggerated.  Autopsy studies and CDC demographic data show that 73 percent to 88 percent of those listed as COVID deaths were people who died not from COVID but with COVID, and because of pre-existing life threatening conditions.  Dr. Anthony Fauci urged parents to vaccinate their children, in whom the risk of death from COVID was less than 0.03 percent.  Meanwhile, adverse impacts of mRNA vaccines were falsified, hidden and suppressed.  Masks don't work.  Lockdowns, social isolation, and school closures not only didn't work, but had catastrophic consequences.  More than 200,000 small businesses closed in the first year of COVID.  Children, especially the poor, lost two years of schooling.  Democrats knew this and yet pounded away with danger warnings and mandates or advisories that violated the Bill of Rights.  They abrogated the rule of law.

Most of the media don't mind a president who rules like a dictator, so long as he is a leftist.  In 2021, when Joe took office, Democrats had complete control of Congress, yet he decided on day one to act like a dictator anyway.  We didn't see the media call him a dictator or talk about abuse of power, and separation of duties, so Joe got away with it.  Biden decided unilaterally to ignore immigration laws and to stop enforcing the border.  Literally millions of illegals streamed in.  If the president didn't want immigration laws enforced, his politicized Justice Department was happy to comply.  One of Biden's main goals was to destroy energy-producing companies, so he stopped a critical pipeline and put severe limits on drilling on public lands.  Energy prices took off.  Biden said that the Constitution prevented him from forgiving student loans but he is continuously trying to do that anyway.  We hear few complaints from Democrats about abuse of power and separation of powers.  It always helps a dictator if he has a deep state that serve as essentially campaign workers and a politicized Justice Department led by a person who will do what he is told.  If the teacher's union wanted schools to be closed, Joe's CDC was at their beck and call, happily regurgitating their talking points.

Democrat Introduces Legislation to Make White People Criticizing Minorities a Federal Crime.  Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee, long in the running for being the vapidest member of Congress (oops, did I just commit a crime?), has introduced legislation that could make political criticism by white people against minorities a federal crime.  In what can only be called a convoluted mess, the bill proposes that a white person who "vilifies" any non-white person and has their words end up on social media, accessible by "persons who are predisposed to engaging in any action in furtherance of a white supremacy inspired hate crime," would themselves be committing a federal crime.  [Tweet]  The provision is so broad that you could drive a Mack truck through it.  What is a "white supremacy-inspired hate crime" under this statute?  How is "replacement theory" defined?

A Revolution in the Minds of the People.  I have a guttural revulsion to one-world-government types who seek to rule the world by turning domestic populations against themselves.  "Divide and conquer" is the only strategy they know, and oppression disguised as altruism is the only outcome they bring.  They speak obsessively about racism not because they seek racial peace, but rather because the exploitation of such petty, ancient hatreds distracts people from the real problems those with power continue to create.  They preach about "climate change" not because they fear that our planet is coming to an end, but because scaring humanity into handing governments complete control over the use of energy hands governments complete control over humanity as well.  They hyperventilate over COVID variants today not because they seek to save lives, but because they seek to monitor and manipulate every movement of every life from here on out.

Get Ready for 'Climate Change Death' Tracking.  Anyone following the regime's playbook already understands that when you disagree with it, you'll be accused of killing someone.  Don't take the vaccine, don't lock down, or don't wear a mask — you're killing grandma.  Question voting and balloting procedures, and your words will provoke a deadly insurrection.  Suggest that a man can't get pregnant, and you're guilty of stochastic terrorism.  The regime characterizes conservatives as killers for their opinions, yet its partisans celebrate abortion up to parturition.  It wants to let murderers out of jail, and is now moving to destigmatize the "dignified" culling of the elderly and infirm.  Climate change is the platform from which the regime seeks to achieve power by creating a rationale for laws and regulations that dictate where and how people can move, live, purchase, and work.  So it makes sense that climate change would re-emerge as a priority just as the world moves on from a pandemic, where the body count of those dying "from" or "with" Covid was used to justify repressive policies such as lockdowns, shutdowns, election process changes, and the prevention of the practice of your religious faith.

The Idaho murders criminal investigation was using chilling surveillance tools.  The charging documents so far revealed in the University of Idaho students' murder investigation are both comforting and chilling.  I suspect that I am far from alone in having gotten impatient with the length of time we saw no signs of progress in media, and may have made some unkind assumptions about the investigatory prowess of the small town police department that was the first agency on the scene.  So, it is reassuring that the alleged perp of the horrific crime is under arrest and was methodically kept under surveillance [...] And yet, it is disconcerting that the highly politicized and anti-conservative FBI is able to track our movements with surveillance videos and cell phone pings and match our DNA to a sample in its possession even if we've never had a DNA test ourselves, using relatives that have subscribed to 23 and Me, or otherwise have entered DNA databases that police can access.

How About A Kill Switch To Shut Down Washington?  Kris Kristofferson said that "freedom" is "just another word for nothin' left to lose."  To the political left, freedom is an abomination that must be defined and controlled by the ruling class elites.  And what better way to do that than to crack down on automobile travel?  Cars are a favorite target of all progressives and most Democrats.  No human invention has increased freedom as much as the automobile.  That's why they have chosen to go to war on cars.  It's a long-term campaign that will take decades to finish.  But there are victories along the way, and one of them was won in Washington with the help of Republicans.  According to Bob Barr, a former federal prosecutor and congressman from Georgia, the infrastructure bill the president signed a little more than a year ago includes "a little-noticed 'safety' measure that will take effect in five years."  It "amounts to a 'vehicle kill switch,'" Barr wrote in the Daily Caller, and every car built after 2026 has to have one.

Jordan Peterson sentenced to reeducation training.  Canada doesn't have reeducation camps — yet.  But Justin Trudeau's Canada is making progress towards becoming China's North American twin.  Compliance with the ideological diktats of the intelligentsia is apparently a requirement in order to keep your job these days.  Yesterday Jordan Peterson revealed and the College of Ontario Psychologists acknowledged that he has been "sentenced" to mandatory retraining in order to retain his license to practice clinical psychology in Canada.  [Tweet]  Just in case you didn't know, Pierre Poilievre is the leader of the opposition Conservative Party in Canada, meaning that Jordan Peterson is literally being punished for criticizing the current Prime Minister and retweeting the statement of his political opponent — and a mainstream one at that.  The claim is that Jordan Peterson's social media statements caused some unspecified "harm" to patients through his social media statements.  This is the kind of "harm" and "trauma" we hear of all the time these days:  people claiming to be traumatized by the existence of opinions to which they do not agree.

Governments have learnt that fear works — and that is truly terrifying.  As the year in which life officially returned to normal comes to an end, we must ask an uncomfortable question.  What on earth just happened?  We have lived through a period of what would once have been the unthinkable suspension of basic freedoms:  interventions by the state into personal life that even most totalitarian governments would not have dared to impose.  And we, along with most (not all) of the democratic societies of the West, accepted it.  Before that era slips into the fog of convenient forgetfulness, it is absolutely imperative that we — the country as a whole — hold a thorough post hoc examination, because our governing classes have certainly learnt something they will remember.  The critical lesson that has been indelibly absorbed by people in power, and those who advise them, is that fear works.  There is, it turns out, almost nothing that a population (even one as brave and insouciant as Britain's) will not give up if they are systematically, relentlessly frightened.

A Plan for Rescuing America.  Americans who have taken off their blinders now realize that our country is systematically being disassembled from the inside.  Our laws, our morals, our views about life, family and justice, have been under assault for the last 40 years.  Our basic freedoms of speech and religion are almost gone along with the right to bear arms.  The institutions that we trusted and relied on to keep us safe have been corrupted.  A majority of the press, the media, corporations, doctors, scientists, our education system, and social media now actively work against the best interests of the United States.  Our justice system has been so compromised that a citizen can be given solitary confinement for two years for the political equivalent of jay-walking — without a trial — and a violent criminal with a mile-long rap sheet who attempts murder on a senior citizen is released by a Soros-controlled prosecutor within hours.

Law Will Install Kill Switches In All New Cars.  According to an article written by former U.S. Representative Bob Barr, hidden away in the recently passed infrastructure bill, the very one I warned before would negatively impact drivers across the country if it were to pass, is a measure to install vehicle kill switches into every new car, truck, and SUV sold in this country.  The regulation likely won't be enforced for five years, so maybe there's time to do something about this.  As we've seen both in this country and others recently, what constitutes "law-abiding" can change drastically overnight.  For example, in September a car was pulled over in New Zealand and the occupants arrested when police discovered the trunk was full of Kentucky Fried Chicken meals.  They were smuggling the fast food to customers in locked-down Auckland, against quarantine measures.  Yet not too long before, delivering restaurant orders to people was considered a reputable, legal activity.  It gets even better:  Barr points out that the bill, which has been signed into law by President Biden, states that the kill switch, which is referred to as a safety device, must "passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired." In other words, Big Brother will constantly be monitoring how you drive.  If you do something the system has been programmed to recognize as driver impairment, your car could just shut off, which could be incredibly dangerous.  There is the possibility the kill switch program might measure your driving as impaired, then when you try to start the car up again the engine won't fire up.  That would potentially leave you stranded.

Senator Cardin: Hate Speech is Not Protected by First Amendment.  Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md) is ending 2022 on an ominous note after declaring that "if you espouse hate... you're not protected under the First Amendment." The statement is obviously untrue, but it is only the latest example of the eroding support for free speech in Congress and the country at large.  It is particularly chilling for one of the nation's most powerful politicians (sworn to "support and defend the Constitution") to show either a lack of knowledge or lack of fealty to the First Amendment.  He is not the first Democratic leader to make this clearly erroneous statement about the Constitution.  Politicians such as Howard Dean have previously voiced the same view.  The First Amendment does not distinguish between types of speech: "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech."  Indeed, the language was explained most succinctly by Justice Hugo Black in Smith v.  California:  "I read 'no law ... abridging' to mean no law abridging."  While the court has distinguished "fighting words," criminal threats and other narrow categories, it does not bestow the government the open right to strip protection of speech that it deems "hateful."

New Video Explores How the Pandemic Unveiled the Worst Among Us.  The narrator reviews how during the pandemic, many people mistakenly acted as though they were suddenly deputized police officers enforcing real laws.  Interspersed with personal experiences, the video forces you to remember your own.  In my case, it was the waif of a teenage girl behind the deli counter shouting, "I cannot serve you unless you put a mask on!"  (I didn't go back for six months.)  Then there was the tour guide in Massachusetts who threatened to have our open-air bus, which was packed with tourists, completely stopped because my mask had fallen below my nose.  And of course, who can forget the young teens in the Adirondacks, who militaristically demanded I fill out my name and address before I could jump in the lake on a scorching hot day.  In each case, it seemed like their hardness came easily; that they even relished their new authoritarian roles. [...] The video then airs footage of those "six feet apart" footstep signs that magically appeared on commercial floors around the world.  (Something of which we surprisingly had no shortage.)  Then there were the arrows instructing us in one-way foot traffic.  If you want the limited science behind that, you can find it in Science Direct.  And if you think they are done with their social experiments like COVID foot traffic patterns, think again.

I was ejected from Costco because I wasn't wearing a mask — in late summer 2021, long after it was common knowledge that masks do no good.  Of course I've never returned; and of course they don't care, but I'm not going back.

COVID Tyranny: Federal Judge Rules 'Public Safety' Overrides Personal Medical Autonomy.  A federal judge seated in Montana, The Honorable Donald W. Molloy, recently ruled that "public safety" trumps individual autonomy over what gets injected into your body.  [Video clip]  The vague, undefined "hardships" that Judge Molloy references presumably include heart inflammation (myocarditis) (previously derided as "conspiracy theory" in corporate media), neurological conditions such as Guillain-BarrĂ© syndrome (GBS), and other serious health consequences.  [Tweet]  This judge's ruling is tantamount to medical terrorism for the sake of social engineering and Big Pharma profiteering — literally the most morally repugnant function that a government could serve.  The absurdity and immorality of Judge Molloy's ruling are compounded by the fact that, despite the Public Health lie in the early days of the rollout that the jab stops transmission, we know now that it does not.  In fact, Pfizer never even tested whether their shots stop transmission before introducing them to market.  [Video clip]

NYC Mayor Declares "Big Brother is Protecting You".  New York City Mayor Eric Adams responded to criticism over increasing the use of facial recognition technology by declaring, "Big Brother is protecting you!"  Adams made the comments in response to elected officials who expressed concerns that using such technology could lead to an all-pervasive surveillance state.  Blaming his predecessor Bill de Blasio, Adams asserted that New Yorkers felt they were living in a "state of lawlessness" and that his priority was to "stabilise" the situation.  Facial recognition technology uses surveillance cameras to flag up individuals who appear on databases of criminal suspects when they enter certain public locations, although the technology is far from perfect.

Biden's Unopposed Imposition of Stalinism.  While conservatives tend to be more tolerant of different viewpoints, the progressive liberals who have taken over the Democrat Party want to completely eradicate anyone with an incompatible vision.  Censorship of opposing views has become the official modus operandi of the federal government.  "Joe Biden's partisan political enemies," said Tucker Carlson, "are now officially enemies of the state."  The government is collaborating with social media to crack down on private communication when it is critical of Biden's policies.  "The Biden administration considers censorship applicable to private speech," said Tucker Carlson.  "What you say in private, when you're alone with your phone.  You won't be able to say or read what you want because the Democrats intend to control the flow of information.  Nothing that questions official regime policy will reach you."  Soon Biden's minions will be listening to all your phone calls and emails, and monitoring your social media posts as they do in China.  No private communication of prohibited ideas will be allowed.

Oxford residents will soon be prisoners of their own neighborhoods.  This is one of those stories that you're certain is from the Babylon Bee, and that is stunning in its implications when it turns out to be the truth.  In this case, the truth is that, in accordance with UN and WEF climate recommendations, the city of Oxford (home to the famed university) approved plans mandating that citizens may not drive more than 15 minutes distance from their homes without permission.  It's called the "15 Minute City" and is intended to reduce auto emissions.  Mostly, though, it will reduce liberty, which is what climate change madness has always been about.

Whither Canada?  Canada has been much on my mind these days, weeks, months, and years, not only because I am a Canadian citizen, but because, like many of my American friends, I am witnessing firsthand the destruction of a country.  The current prime minister's campaign, amounting to a kind of jihad, to destabilize the nation and create the world's first "post-national state" proceeds on many levels.  Among them, as I have previously catalogued, are a burgeoning national debt, a series of repressive bills making their way through parliament, a prohibitive and unnecessary carbon tax, the deliberate destruction of the energy sector, the impending rollout of digital ID surveillance technology, and the notorious invoking of the deeply flawed and inappropriate Emergencies Act to deal with the Truckers' Freedom Convoy protesting the vaccine mandates.  This last travesty was compounded by the government's striking a Commission of Inquiry in which it set its own terms and appointed its own Commissioner.  PM Justin Trudeau's declared purpose of protecting Canadians' health via the vaxx mandates by, among other initiatives, attacking the Truckers as violent, racist, and homophobic was a false-flag operation.

British Woman Arrested for Thinking Silent Prayers Inside Perimeter of Public Area Where Only Lawful Thoughts are Permitted.  Mrs Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, aged 45, was not doing anything except standing inside an area under what local officials call a "Public Spaces Protection Order."  Within these designated areas protest is not permitted.  Prayer is considered an act of protesting.  Mrs. Vaughan-Spruce was standing alone, in silence.  However, she was thinking prayerful thoughts without speaking.  As a consequence, her cognitive state — thinking about prayer — was in violation of the protection order.  A police officer arrived and questioned Mrs. Vaughan-Spruce about her thoughts.  Mrs. Vaughan-Spruce told the police officer the truth, she was thinking about prayers.  The police officer arrested Mrs. Vaughan-Spruce for violating the Public Spaces Protection Order with her thoughts.

Update:
'Forbidden Prayer': Charges Dropped Against UK Woman Who Prayed Silently.  Police in Birmingham, England have dropped criminal charges against the director of March for Life UK for praying silently "in her head" near an abortion clinic that was closed at the time of her arrest.  But Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, who was arrested in December, said she still wants her day in court to pursue full dismissal of her charges in light of claims by authorities that criminal prosecution for her silent prayers could resume at a later date.  "It can't be right that I was arrested and made a criminal, only for praying in my head on a public street" Vaughan-Spruce stated in a press release.

Biden admin funding AI research to detect and censor "microaggressions".  Here's one part of the nearly $2 trillion American Rescue Plan passed last year that few people apparently read.  The bill included more than half a million dollars in grants for tech researchers to develop artificial intelligence algorithms capable of identifying and suppressing "microaggressions" in social media posts.  Part of the money was quietly gifted to researchers at the University of Washington earlier this year and they expect to receive the rest of it in coming years as the development work proceeds.  You may find yourself wondering how the federal government wound up handing out taxpayer money to develop ways to automatically censor the free speech of its citizens.  It's a great question.

Oregon bans sales of new gas-powered passenger cars by 2035.  Policymakers for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality on Monday approved a rule that prohibits the sale of new gasoline-powered passenger vehicles in Oregon by 2035.  The effort comes as Oregon plans to cut climate-warming emissions by 50% by 2035 and by 90% by 2050, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.  The transportation sector accounts for nearly 40% of greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon.

Jordan Peterson Warns the Left Is Planning a 'Totalitarian Social Credit System'.  The Left has been slowly pushing a socialist agenda in the U.S. for some time.  However, it wasn't until the Covid-19 pandemic that Americans began to realize it.  During an interview with Australia's Sky News, anti-woke thinker Jordan Peterson warned that a "totalitarian credit system" is coming to western countries.  When asked if he thinks what happened during Covid could usher in a version of a social credit system, Peterson answered that it is "highly probable."  "And that it will be accepted by many people?" the reporter asked.  "They won't even notice," Peterson said. "You can't believe how much people don't know these things."  Peterson talked about how society could easily be fooled into thinking it was a system made to make them feel like it was done for their sake.

For two years now we have been witnessing a global coup d'état.  [Threat reader]  ...in which a financial and ideological elite has succeeded in seizing control of part of national governments, public and private institutions, the media, the judiciary, politicians and religious leaders.  All of these, without distinction, have become enslaved to these new masters who ensure power, money and social affirmation to their accomplices.  Fundamental rights, which up until yesterday were presented as inviolable, have been trampled underfoot in the name of an emergency:  today a health emergency, tomorrow an ecological emergency, and after that an internet emergency.  This global coup d'état deprives citizens of any possibility of defense, since the legislative, executive, and judicial powers are complicit in the violation of law, justice, and the purpose for which they exist.  It is a global coup d'état because this criminal attack against citizens extends to the whole world, with very rare exceptions.  It is a world war, where the enemies are all of us, even those who unwittingly have not yet understood the significance of what is happening.  It is a war fought not with weapons but with illegitimate rules, wicked economic policies, and intolerable limitations of natural rights.  Supranational organizations, financed in large measure by the conspirators of this coup d'état, are interfering in the government of individual nations and in the lives, relationships, and health of billions of people.  They are doing it for money, certainly, but even more so in order to centralize power so as to establish a planetary dictatorship.  It is the Great Reset of the World Economic Forum, the Agenda 2030 of the United Nations.

Controlling the Department of Justice.  The Founders of this nation would never have agreed to the creation of the Department of Justice.  They were extraordinarily skeptical of a large federal government and adamantly opposed to a federal law enforcement role.  Except for treason, the concept of federal crimes was not even mentioned in the Constitution. [...] Today the Department of Justice is a colossus with over 117,000 employees spending in excess of $46 Billion per year with its tentacles in virtually every aspect of American life.  The legal justification for all this is that Congress has created over 4,500 federal crimes in the U.S. Code and more than 300,000 federal crimes dispersed throughout 110,000 final rules (regulations) in the Federal Register.  This gives unscrupulous prosecutors and their staffs a near-endless source of arcane crimes to choose from in pursuing vendettas or political agendas.

The United States of Fascist America.  Fascism is a political ideology which, unfortunately, is mischaracterized by both media and academia.  For example, Wikipedia describes fascism as, "A far right, authoritarian, ultra-nationalist political ideology and movement characterized by a dictatorial leader, central autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation and race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy."  The definition is mostly correct, except for the first words, claiming fascism is a "far right" ideology.  Hitler was considered a fascist but his party, contrary to the political science experts (disguised as journalists), was far left.  The Nazi Party is the Nationalist Socialist German Workers' Party.  Note the name "socialist," an ideology of the left, not the right.  Another famous fascist, Benito Mussolini further clarified, "Fascism should rightly be called corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power."  That's where America is now, corporate and government power merging into a totalitarian behemoth, crushing any and all dissent.

A Foundation of Sand.  The FBI and the rest of the Deep State's witch hunts against innocent Trump supporters and associates are well documented.  If you do not know that our governmental institutions are perfectly partisan and corrupt, no quantity or quality of evidence will convince you at this point.  The evidence is overwhelming that the federal KGB/FBI is more than willing to both cover up the crimes of consummate Cultural Marxists while prosecuting the non-crimes of anyone who would dare mock or flout the sacred rites of the wokeshevik creed, or undermine, no matter how trivially, the interests of the Washington regime, to the extent those matters are separable.  Not only is the FBI not interested in the Biden family's many crimes, some of which are fairly serious, it is even farming out its dirty work to its agents and assets in the corporate world (CEOs, CFOs, general counsels at Twitter) so as to protect the state criminals at the helm of the imperial regime in Washington.  It is of course still quite sensible to acknowledge that the "rule of law" has been lost, because it has been devoured by partisans in the media and in law enforcement, but it is more fruitful to wonder whether the "rule of law" is even possible in a nation such as ours.  A government as power-hungry and corrupt as ours minds not the laws, but perhaps more importantly, a critical mass of our own people have grown hyperpolarized and hyperracialized, not merely resentful and cynical, but downright disdainful of large portions of their fellow Americans.  No one is really and truly safe from the law now.

Climate Lockdowns: It's Real.  Local authorities in Oxford tried to 'fact check' an article claiming they're imposing de facto 'climate lockdowns', but ended basically admitting that's exactly what they're doing.  [Video clip]

Does your government control you, or do you control your government?  Too much is happening, simultaneously, not to see a grand scheme leading to destruction — or, if a leftist, transformation.  The irony is that our form of government, called a constitutional republic, has been far more successful than their idea, called totalitarianism or communism, which has failed every time and in every nation that tried it.  Yet many are trying central control, again — not because it helps the citizen.  Quite the opposite:  communism helps the elite few who are in control.  Why would a free person give up freedom for control?  For safety, freebies, handouts, fear?  The question demands an answer.  The dividing line is stark:  does your government control you, or do you control your government?

The Long Con.  We are the victim of policies that sound good and feel good but have the opposite effect, all by design.  Too many examples of what amounts to malign intent should be readily visible to all.  I have come to realize that our basic foundational teachings, our tribal law, and the social acclimatization that evolved over eons, no longer work. [...] Voting is no longer determinative.  Our votes don't matter, which goes a long way to explaining why people, despite their anger and frustration, are passive.  Law-abiding citizens feel there's nothing they can do short of taking to the streets.  The sole exception to law-abiding passivity is education because parents are galvanized on their children's behalf.  Local governments feel vulnerable because the Federal government is constantly testing the limits of what it can overtly do.  Gov. Youngkin's win in Virginia was a setback for government, but don't think for a moment that parents won the war.  The career Woke bureaucrats who really believe those are not your children but, instead, are theirs are just weathering the storm and then they'll be back with a vengeance.

A Corrupt, Evil Regime Intent on Imprisoning Trump.  Gunrunner, never-charged criminal, political hack, and perpetually aggrieved former attorney general Eric Holder is back, bloviating about President Trump being imminently arrested.  Given that we live in post-Republic times and that the Department of (in)Justice has exhibited no shame or remorse in its years-long campaign of political persecution and partisan double-standards, I'll take Obama's contemptible "wingman" at his word just this once.  So Democrats, Establishment Republicans, and the Deep State Leviathan plan on humiliating President Trump by frog-marching him before the world and tossing him in the clink.  So what?  They've been telegraphing this play for months, if not years.  We get it.  The U.S. government is irredeemably corrupt, we've officially entered banana republic territory, and all the worst tyrants in D.C. plan on rounding up and punishing anyone brave enough to fight back or dissent.

Mark Levin: We are moving toward a Democratic-run police state.  [Video clip]

Elon Musk's Twitter Reckoning Exposes a Nation Dying of Autoimmune Disease.  We all owe a debt of gratitude to Elon Musk.  That brave and civic-minded innovator actually believes in the founding creed of his adopted nation, America.  He proved that with his purchase of Twitter and his insistence just this Friday on exposing that platform's filthy secrets.  Musk showed us that, by 2020, Twitter had gone from a free speech space to a prime tool for coercion and thought control, in coordination with our country's degenerate ruling class and corrupt secret police.  Social media in America are no freer than the newspapers in North Korea, or the Internet in Iran.  Musk released Twitter's internal records to left-wing whistleblower journalist (and First Amendment purist) Matt Taibbi.

The FBI has disturbingly broad authority to commit crimes and violence.  Previous articles mentioned FBI, intelligence community, local police, and/or other government use of secret methods, secret technologies, and "otherwise illegal activity."  It is probably obvious that government and non-government use of secret police methods and technologies, potentially including "biosurveillance" technologies that remotely affect or monitor the human brain or body, is contrary to democracy.  Some methods and technologies might be properly labeled as torture.  And reasonable people might demand those within government, and non-government persons who cooperate with them, not be permitted to operate with such secrecy. [...] When studying U.S. federal laws, guidelines, and documents, one discovers that the U.S. federal and local governments may have used secret hoaxes, methods, and technologies on Americans for many years.  Such methods and technologies caused, and could currently be causing, significant harm.

New Zealand Fights to Remove Baby From Parents Who Refuse 'Tainted Vaccinated' Blood For Child's Operation.  In New Zealand, a terrifying situation has arisen around a four-month-old baby who has to undergo life-saving heart surgery The baby's parents, Sam and Cole, have asked the hospital not to use vaccinated blood in their child Will's operation.  Their baby has pulmonary valve stenosis and needs immediate surgery.  Instead of their request being granted, the state is fighting to strip them of their parental rights and seize control of their child.  The baby's parents recently explained their position during an interview with Liz Gunn, a broadcaster from New Zealand who herself has raised concerns about the safety of the experimental "vaccines."

FBI tracked Jan. 6 protesters' location even if phones were in airplane mode: report.  Government entities can track individuals' smartphone geolocation data even when there's no cell service or if phones are in airplane mode, according to technology website Wired.  The confirmation came in a report about the FBI's tactics to find participants in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.  In a November 28 report, Wired investigative science and technology reporter Mark Harris highlighted evidence uncovered from January 6 court records.  According to the filings, FBI officials served a bevy of so-called "geofence warrants" to Google to access smartphone location data belonging to individuals suspected of taking part in the riot.

If Big Brother And Big Tech Can Team Up To Violate Political Opponents' Privacy Over J6, They Can Do The Same To You.  Google gave the feds the personal data of nearly 1,500 individuals based on cell phone location data indicating their presence near the Capitol complex on Jan. 6, 2021.  The Department of Justice sought substantially more information, as well, according to a recent court filing, including data on Jan. 6 cell phone users wholly outside the Capitol.  These facts, coupled with Google's apparent disregard for the privacy rights of its customers, expose the potential for the government and Big Tech to collaboratively target political enemies.  In response to the riot that erupted inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, following a rally at the National Mall and a peaceful protest outside the Capitol, the Department of Justice launched a massive investigation seeking to identify and prosecute the individuals who committed crimes that day.  Just a week after the Jan. 6 riot, "the government sought and was granted a 'geofence' warrant for data held by Google."

The UN wants you to know that words are weapons now, and they lead to cruelty and violence.  It's pretty easy to see where The UN is headed with this new little campaign of theirs.  [Tweet]  Yes, the old "sticks and stones" saying no longer applies in the world of the snowflake.  Because hateful words are literal violence now, and they may actually hurt worse than sticks and stones.  Just listen to Texas Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee:  [Tweet] [...] So whatever you do, don't take this "speech is violence" stuff seriously.  It's just another weapon they're using in an attempt to squash our resistance.

From a Time When Communism Was Taught Right.  We have seen social media platforms ban freedom of speech.  We have seen certain journalists excluded from press conferences in Arizona and then watched the journalists be herded off government property by deputy sheriffs.  Later, these same journalists were tracked by flying drones like what we have seen the Chinese Communist Party employ against its COVID-19 dissidents.  The American news media frequently slant or omit the true news of the day.  The American viewer has been fed a steady diet of propaganda.  We have seen false stories about "Russia, Russia, Russia"; the "Big Lie"; and "J6."  Peaceful American citizens, including many veterans who fought to protect our rights, are being held in the District of Columbia jail in terrible conditions and without being formally charged.  Over two years have passed, and many still have not had a speedy trial.

Elections — and therefore consent and popular sovereignty — are no longer meaningful.  First, even if conducted legitimately, elections no longer reflect the will of the people.  Set aside for the moment any concerns about outright fraud and ballot tampering.  The steady growth of the administrative state since the 1960s means that bureaucracy has become increasingly indifferent to — even openly hostile to — the will of the people over the last half-century.  A clear majority of Americans, including Democrats (at least until recently), has been demanding and voting for comprehensive immigration reform, including strict control of the border, for decades.  The Republican establishment in Congress — which made its peace with the deep state some time ago — has made numerous promises to fix this problem, and broken them all, always finding a reason for "amnesty now, enforcement later."  The decision about who gets to be part of the political community was the basic principle of popular sovereignty in the founders' social compact theory.  To the degree that the elites have simply ignored the American people on this point, neither the United States as a nation nor its citizens can still be considered a sovereign people.  Of course, that is only one obvious example.  In thousands of other ways, the federal bureaucracy ignores the deliberate wishes of the American people.  The regulators, administrators, and policymakers in the alphabet soup of federal agencies set the rules and impose their collective will as they see fit.

Are You Freer than You Were Two Years Ago?  Make no mistake:  it is despotism that we face in Biden's proposal to double the size of the IRS; in the political weaponization of the FBI, CIA, and DOJ; in the amassing of information by technology giants; in the corporate surrender to woke ideologies; in the takeover of schools by progressive activists; in the proliferation of "hate speech" laws; in the self-censorship that so many Americans practice to appease political correctness; and in the influence of media on our thinking.  We live in an age of fear and conformity, and those who are weak have become enslaved and have willingly relinquished their freedom to the powerful forces of government, media, "expert" opinion, and corporate venality.  The practical effects of this despotism can be seen everywhere.  Rising taxes are used to transfer more and more of an individual's earnings to government, where it is used with little accountability to enrich those who support ever greater government spending and who make campaign donations to ensure this happens.

Ctrl+Alt+Delete the Totalitarian State.  In the U.S., we have now completed the second straight election in which COVID-era mail-in ballots and statistically questionable results have upended races days after their supposed conclusion.  When Americans point out rampant ballot insecurity, the lack of signature verification, and strange vote patterns inconsistent with prior local races, government officials target concerned citizens rather than scrutinizing suspect elections.  The people who insist that "democracy" must defeat "authoritarianism" at all costs are the same ones who authoritatively dismiss election concerns and demean unconvinced citizens as "deniers."

Big Brother's Heating & Cooling Service.  As the global energy crisis drags on, the responses to it are going to get more authoritarian.  Here's an example:  the government of Japan are looking into the possibility of remotely adjusting the temperature in private homes which are deemed too warm or cool.  Japan, as the article notes, is hot and humid in the summer and can be chilly in the winter.  The idea of an "Energy Conservation Subcommittee" huddled in a government building in Tokyo somewhere deciding on the optimal temperature of every home in a country of 125 million people should make the citizenry sweat.  Or give them chills, as the case may be.

John Kerry Spills the Beans at U.N.'s COP27 Meeting: They Want to Replace Capitalism with a New Economic System.  The World Economic Forum's climate change agenda was "modeled" off the effort to roll out vaccines during the Covid pandemic, John Kerry said during a COP27 panel discussion in Egypt on Tuesday.  That means we can all look forward to high-pressure, coercive government tactics, and not only from the government but from corporate elites.  Appearing alongside WEF President Børge Brende and various corporate executives, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry said that it is urgent for the private sector to pair with governments to realize the goal of preventing the global temperature from rising and to save lives in the allegedly looming global climate crisis, Breitbart reported.  Kerry said in a speech before the panel:  "We have an enormous challenge before us to bring to scale new technologies and to harness the deeply capable capacity of private sector entrepreneurs in order to bring them to the table because without it, no government has enough money... we need everybody behind this."  King Charles has made similar statements, that we need nations to pool their resources and raise a trillion dollars to combat climate change.

Transcommunism is coming.  [The] "Known Traveler Digital Identity (KTDI)" was a pilot project of the WEF in 2018. Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada is a Young Global Leader of the WEF.  The other partner in Canada's KTDI programme, by the way, is the Dutch government.  That includes Sigrid Kaag (D66), an 'agenda contributor' to the WEF.  Kaag is pretty much the Netherlands' shadow prime minister and finance minister.  She reported a few days ago that she wants to oblige banks to put all transactions above 100 euros into a large database, under the guise of fighting fiscal fraud.  That in itself is a huge breach of privacy law.  The Dutch government's plan to track almost all transactions of its citizens could also be a preparatory step towards the implementation of a digital central bank currency (Central Bank Digital Currency).  That digital euro is again not a fairy tale of conspiracy thinkers, but was also previously announced by the European Central Bank.  Such a digital Euro, centrally controlled by the ECB is the prelude to a total social control society on the Chinese model.  With it, every financial transaction can not only be monitored but then adjusted or even banned.  Linked to credit or debit cards, your spending patterns can be accurately tracked.  Linked to your "Covid Safe" card or app (which will be soon renamed as a Health Certificate) your money can be blocked in case of 'undesirable behavior'.  Bought too much meat or avocados from Africa this month causing your carbon footprint to go into the red?  Then your digital money for these products will be blocked.  Put too many bottles of Moët et Chandon Champagne in your shopping basket while your digital health certificate knows you have high blood pressure?  "Better not drink any more alcohol this month anyway" your digital money will say to you.  Anyone who already takes a plane once in a while will not be able to book their next flight if as a result your 'CO2 plane points' have been exceeded.  Airmiles will suddenly take on a whole new meaning.

Joe Biden and the Cost of Living.  Today we face a federal government of 2 million workers backed by a military of 1.2 million and state and local force of 7.4 million — altogether 18% of U.S. workers.  Big Government is also supported by 34.1 million workers in education and health services, most of them government-funded, and millions of others in media, entertainment, and liberal non-profits.  This enormous bloc of government-funded workers, much of it now unionized, is a reliable supporter of expanded government funding and power.  Every day, the American people are more enslaved by this behemoth, and the odds of regaining our true freedom become slimmer.  Tens of millions now accept the socialist tenet that government has the right to seize whatever it likes and to direct not just the economy, but the personal lives of its citizens.  We are no longer on the road to serfdom — we are already there.

Biden's DOJ 'Weaponizing' Law To Arrest 'Political Enemies,' Former Official Says.  The Biden administration is "weaponizing" the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act to go after pro-life activists, an attorney who served under George W. Bush and Barack Obama told the Daily Caller.  "The left is out for blood, and Biden's base is demanding prosecutions and the DOJ is providing them," said Roger Severino, who served as an attorney at the Department of Justice's Civil Rights division, the same division that enforces the FACE Act.  The Biden administration has charged at least 16 pro-life activists with a maximum of 11 years in prison for alleged violations of the act, which prohibits obstructing people seeking reproduction services.  Pro-life activist Mark Houck allegedly pushed an abortion escort to the ground after a verbal confrontation.  FBI agents swarmed Houck's house and took him away at gunpoint months after the initial charges against him were dropped.

Police: National or Local?  [O]ur federal government has no constitutional authority for any general police powers.  Nevertheless, according to the latest data available from the federal Department of Justice (DOJ), the federal police force has expanded to 136,815 officers in 90 federal agencies.  Virtually every federal agency now has its own SWAT-style paramilitary "police" unit to enforce its edicts and "protect the homeland": the Departments of State, Education, Agriculture, Energy, and Treasury, for instance, and agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, the Social Security Administration, the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, etc.  Not to mention the U.S. Marshals Service, the FBI, the Federal Protective Police Service, the Transportation Security Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  And recently, in one fell swoop, the Biden administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress have pushed through legislation that would soon add 87,000 federal IRS agents with badges and guns!  Alarmingly, while the federal constabulary has been ballooning to unprecedented size, our local law-enforcement agencies are shrinking due to radical Marxist "defund the police" campaigns.

Federal Advisory Group Suggested Charging All Employees Of Libertarian Think Tanks With Treason.  A federal advisory group recommended members of two libertarian think tanks be charged with treason in 2020, according to documents released Tuesday by the Cato Institute.  MARAD, a federal agency tasked with stewarding the U.S. maritime industry under the Department of Transportation, provided Cato with a series of documents as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which Cato said was a monthslong process only completed after MARAD missed several deadlines and was threatened with legal action.  The documents reveal that a subcommittee within MARAD comprised of both federal government employees and private individuals, known as the Marine Transportation System National Advisory Committee (MTSNAC), recommended in March 2020 that the government "charge all past and present members of the Cato and Mercatus Institutes with treason," which the Cato Institute alleges is due to their criticism of a controversial law regulating maritime trade known as the Jones Act.

The American Stasi State.  [Scroll down] When Joe Biden stands before an ominous and extremely dark backdrop to castigate millions of Americans as extremists, fascists, threats, and enemies, we have crossed an extremely dangerous Rubicon.  This is the mantra of the real fascists, socialists, Marxists, and yes, communists, to disparage their political opposition, dehumanizing them, and setting them up for a "by any means necessary" agenda of suppression, silencing, and eradication.  America is becoming a Stasi state.  Over the past year, we have seen parents who resisted the indoctrination of their children be attacked.  How interesting it is that the National Association of School Boards, of which many state school boards are members, wrote a letter to the U.S. Attorney General demanding that parents showing up at school board meetings be designated as domestic terrorists.  And even in the Lone Star State of Texas, we had two dads arrested in their homes, before their families, at night, in Round Rock, Texas, all because they spoke up about transparency and their disagreement with the current superintendent.

The FBI Vs.  The People.  America's principal law enforcement agency, the FBI, has declared yet another war.  It's just like the war on drugs, the war on organized crime, and the war on terrorism from decades past — but this time, the bureau's enemy is average Americans who are not Democrats.  That's not a mere Republican talking point.  Indeed, few Republican officials are talking about the FBI at all, despite the bureau's repeated use of Stasi tactics to intimidate their constituents.  No, this is now a fact of American life. [...] In every case, the FBI terrorized the families and neighbors of these men, threatening to break down the door and enter with guns drawn at their wives and children.  The charges are a farce, but if convicted, they and their "co-conspirators" in the abortion clinic protests could face over a decade in prison.  Those of us who watched the FBI's behavior during the Trump presidency and especially after Jan. 6 were not surprised that the bureau has now turned its sights on the peaceful pro-life movement.

Biden Executive Order Abolishes Constitutional Safeguards Against Spying on Americans.  Joe Biden unilaterally abolished protections preventing the federal government from spying on Americans without a warrant.  A presidential memorandum on an executive order issued on October 7, entitled "Enhancing Safeguards for United States Signals Intelligence Activities," admits that the EO removes the "the safeguards for personal information collected through signals intelligence established by Presidential Policy Directive 28 of January 17, 2014 (Signals Intelligence Activities) (PPD-28)...."  After expressly revoking the previously enacted protections against collection of domestic surveillance data without a warrant, the Biden order declares that "Signals intelligence activities shall be authorized by statute or by Executive Order, proclamation, or other Presidential directive and undertaken in accordance with the Constitution and with applicable statutes and Executive Orders, proclamations, and other Presidential directives."  Only two of the items in that list — statutes and the Constitution — have the force of law in the United States.  The latter of those two legal documents explicitly declares in fact that "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States...."  That very clear language not only grants exclusive power to Congress to make laws for the union, but by implication denies such authority to the president of the United States!  Therefore, Mr. Biden, your executive orders, proclamations, and directives are of no legal effect in the union.

Democrat labels National Right to Life Committee an 'extremist group'.  Nevada Democrat senator Catherine Cortez Masto labeled the National Right to Life Committee an "extremist group" in a recent campaign ad attacking the group's endorsement of her Republican opponent, Adam Laxalt.  The ad brands National Right to Life a "powerful extremist group" because it is urging Congress to pass what the ad terms a "national abortion ban."  In response, the organization issued a statement to TheBlaze in which it said, "National Right to Life does not want babies to die and supports measures to support the lives of mothers and their unborn children.  Catherine Cortez Masto is the extremist who wants unlimited abortion even late in pregnancy and paid for by taxpayer dollars."

Virginia Lawmaker Introduces Bill That Would Allow The State To Remove Children From Parents If They Don't Affirm Their Pretend Gender.  As the battle over parental rights and protections for LGBT students heats up in Virginia, one state delegate said she will introduce a bill in the legislature's next session that would make it a crime for a parent or guardian not to affirm their child's sexual orientation or gender identity.  The move is in response to Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin's updated "model policies" on transgender students, which require students to use bathrooms and join sports teams based on their sex at birth, as opposed to their gender identity.  Democratic Virginia Delegate Elizabeth Guzman told WJLA on Thursday she will introduce a bill that will expand the state's definition of child abuse and neglect to include parents and guardian [sic] who do not affirm their LGBT children.

The Editor says...
Little kids have stupid ideas and they are almost always wrong when their ideas are non-conformist in any way.  "Affirming" their stupidity is just plain nuts.

The War for Internet Freedom Has Just Begun.  [Scroll down] Without the increased monopolization of internet service providers, cloud computing facilities, and online banking and commerce giants, regulatory agencies could never throttle the free flow of information so unabashedly.  For thirty years, governments and institutions have slowly constructed a crystal prison of sorts — a beautiful digital world that draws the masses in only to control them.  It's a system designed behind the alluring façade of freedom, yet ultimately grounded in the centralized government of suffocating tyranny.  To be sure, many people will gladly accept their new chains.  They will hand back their internet freedoms and free speech for as little as a shiny new phone and promise never again to question what they're told.  Yet hundreds of millions — if not billions — of people have learned to think more independently than ever before these last three decades.  They have seen past the curtain of controlled speech and know that corrupt government actors manipulate their thoughts from the other side.  And now that they know what they know, a great many of these people will obstinately refuse ever to be lulled back to sleep.  The internet helped free the world.  Governments want that freedom back.  What happens next is for the people to decide.

Leaked FBI Email Shows Government Now Requiring Firearm Retailers To Provide Home Addresses Of Customers.  After the recent abuse of power by the FBI, gun owners have every reason in the world to be distrustful of the federal government.  The same FBI that just raided the home of the White House's political opponent now wants to "review" gun permit records of private citizens.  During a Senate hearing this week, the FBI Director refused to answer questions as to why the FBI wants to collect sensitive information on concealed carry permit holders.  Federal agencies like the FBI and the ATF that are waging war on your constitutional rights MUST be stopped.

How the Enemy Plans Disasters.  We all know, to our cost, how the enemies of humanity used the so-called covid "pandemic" to try to destroy us.  They imposed draconian shutdowns on the economy, pressured and in many cases ordered us to take killer vaccines and blocked young people from the contact with their friends they need to grow up properly.  Some people, such as the monster "Dr." Anthony Fauci, would like to shut us down again. [...] But the situation is even worse than we thought.  Michael Rectenwald has written a brilliant new book, The Great Reset and the Struggle for Liberty: Unraveling the Global Agenda, and in it he shows how the anti-human plotted to use a pandemic to impose totalitarianism on us.  I'm going to talk about some of his findings, and then combine this with evidence that the "pandemic" was made in America.  The implication of this is mind-blowing.  Rectenwald first identifies a person and the group he founded behind the "Great Reset."  The person is Klaus Schwab and the group is his World Economic Forum. [...] In terms of economics and monetary policy, the Great Reset amounts to a great consolidation of wealth, on the one hand, and the planned issuance of universal basic income (UBI) on the other.  Its goals include a shift to a central bank digital currency (CBDC), including a consolidated centralization of banking and bank accounts, the possibility of immediate real-time taxation, negative interest rates, and centralized surveillance and control over spending, debt, and savings.

Gates Foundation gives $200 million to help establish global digital ID system of surveillance.  The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation recently pledged $1.27 billion toward the United Nations' openly pro-abortion 2030 Agenda goals, with $200 million going directly to aid in the creation of an invasive global digital ID system.  According to a September 21 press release published on the Gates Foundation's website, the $200 million package will be used to create an infrastructure that "encompasses tools such as interoperable payment systems, digital ID, data-sharing systems, and civil registry databases" that purports to make countries "more resilient to crises such as food shortages, public health threats, and climate change, as well as to aid in pandemic and economic recovery."  The 2030 Agenda was adopted by the UN in 2015 and establishes a set of 17 goals that are rooted in Marxist theory.  These goals, set to be achieved by 2030, aim to control the population through abortion and contraception, reduce fossil fuel consumption supposedly for the sake of the climate, and instigate a global ID system in which people's every move will be tracked and monitored.

Canada's Dilemma.  Canada is in serious trouble.  To arrive at that conclusion, all one need do is pay attention.  In evident violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms embedded in the Constitution, essential to a functioning democracy, Canada was one of the few countries in the world determined to coerce vaccine mandates and impose possibly illegal travel apps and quarantine protocols.  These measures have been paused, but the government obviously maintains the right to re-impose them at a moment's notice. [...] Undeterred in his march toward despotic rule, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is poised to introduce a digital currency, which will give the government financial control of banking and discretionary spending at the expense of private citizens and consumers.  He is simultaneously engaged in implementing a Digital Identity Program, associated with the World Economic Forum's Known Traveler Digital Identity initiative, on the way toward establishing a Social Credit State which Trudeau blazons as "the most advanced digital jurisdiction in the world."

Biden's DOJ Threatening Pro-Life Protesters w/11 Years in Jail for Civil Disobedience.  By way of some context, the Biden regime knocked down its jail time request for two leftist lawyers who torched a police car with a Molotov cocktail during the Black Lives Matter race riots to 18-24 months even though there was no reason to do so.  But as part of its Jihad against pro-life protesters, the Biden regime is using the FACE Act to target pro-life protesters for actions that are technically illegal, but fall well within civil disobedience norms and don't involve torching anything.  And seeking 11 years in prison.

USDA Now Asking People to Register Their Vegetable Gardens for National Database.  In a move that has many folks scratching their heads, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has renewed its push for the People's Garden Initiative which now includes registering vegetable gardens nationwide.  According to the USDA, the move is to foster a "more diverse and resilient local food system to empower communities to address issues like nutrition access and climate change."  But those who have been following the USDA closely for years know that they couldn't care less about your health and nutrition. [...] While a handful of folks inside the USDA may have well-meaning intentions behind this program, the behemoth organization's track record and history clearly indicate that the overwhelming majority of them do not care about your health.  Not only do they not care about your health but most of their farm and food budget goes toward subsidizing products that directly harm your health.  So, skepticism over a national garden database run by this organization is entirely warranted.  As the world teeters on the verge of nuclear war and economic collapse, remember that in times of war and economic downturns, food is more valuable than gold.

Medical Associations Ask Biden's DOJ to Investigate Individuals [who are] Against Transgender Surgeries for Children.  Three of the nation's leading medical associations asked President Joe Biden's Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate and prosecute journalists and parents who are concerned with hospitals and physicians who provide transgender surgeries to minors.  The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Medical Association, and Children's Hospital Association sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland urging him to "take swift action to investigate and prosecute" those who allegedly threaten or target hospitals and physicians who provide transgender surgery to minors.

Our Own Little Hills.  This summer, Donald Trump, a former United States President, had his home raided by armed FBI agents.  It was asked afterwards that if a former U.S. President could have his home raided, how long will it be until this administration unleashes them onto the American public.  Well, now we know that answer.  Recently, a father of seven also had his home raided by armed FBI agents, and was subsequently arrested.  And what was his crime?  Did he murder somebody?  No.  Did he firebomb a business, church, police station or government building?  No.  Did he desecrate government property?  No.  Nothing even remotely close.  He simply shoved away a raving lunatic who was screaming at and harassing his child, a reaction most fathers would perform in the same situation.  Now, please explain to me how that warrants an armed raid by FBI agents.  Is this really where we are now as a country?  It's hard to fathom.  Unfortunately, his only crime was that he wasn't in lockstep with the State's mandated narrative.  Think about that for a minute.  This man's home was raided as a result of a "thought crime."

How the Federal Reserve is using the 'green transition' as a pretext to build an American Social Credit System.  The Federal Reserve has offered a green light for the first component of an agenda dedicated to turning the American financial system in a complete censorship and surveillance regime, and all indications are that they intend to install further intrusions on liberty into the U.S. Dollar system under the guise of saving the planet from "climate change."  The Dossier reported last week on The Federal Reserve's "pilot exercise" that is slated to both begin and conclude in 2023.  In the piece, we discuss how what has become commonly referred to as ESG, or the climate change agenda, or the "green transition," is acting as a trojan horse for the continuing centralization and the increasing of surveillance in the American financial system.  Across the West, this movement is now acting as the chief catalyst for the implementation of Chinese Communist Party-like social credit score systems.

Report: China Opens 'Overseas Police Stations' in US and Canada to Monitor Its Citizens Living Abroad.  As reported by The New York Post, China has opened dozens of "overseas police service stations" around the world to monitor its citizens living abroad, including one location in New York City and three in Toronto.  Never-learning Europe is home to most of the police stations, including locations in London, Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, Paris, Madrid, and Frankfurt.  In all, there are 54 such stations in 30 different countries.  Meanwhile, ruthless ChiCom dictator Xi Jinping undoubtedly continues to shake his head in wonder as the stupid continues to unfold across multiple international spectrums.  According to the report, China is attempting to "combat the growing issue of fraud and telecommunication fraud by Chinese nationals living abroad," and is running operations that have resulted in 230,000 Chinese nationals being "persuaded to return" to China "voluntarily" over the last year to face criminal prosecution.

Inflation, Shutdowns, and Trending Authoritarianism — Yes, They Are Connected.  Inflation has been summed up as "too much money chasing too few goods."  Some contend that the recent uptick in price inflation is the result of an expansion of the money supply, and they date the start of that expansion back to the Spring of 2020.  That's when the Federal Reserve began pumping trillions of newly-minted Fed dollars into the economy.  The Fed's money printing continued into 2022.  Our current inflation, it would then seem, might just be due to "too much money."  If you recall, the reason for the Fed's massive money-printing was the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic.  The trillions in new money were for the government shutdowns of the economy.  Keep in mind that it was the states that shut down the economy, not the federal government.  No government can deny people their ability to make a living without giving them the means to survive.  Unlike the federal government, the states don't have a central bank that can create money.  But with the $2.2 trillion Cares Act, Congress rode to the rescue and accommodated the states with the money to pay for their shutdowns.  So, the states shut down their economies, Congress backstopped the states, and the Fed provided the money.

New Zealand prime minister condemned for calling to regulate free speech as a 'weapon of war' at UN.  New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was blasted for comparing free speech online to "weapons of war" in a recent speech to the U.N. that critics called "authoritarian."  At the U.N. General Assembly on Friday, Ardern announced a new initiative "to help improve research and understanding of how a person's online experiences are curated by automated processes," saying the work, done in partnership with companies and non-profits, will be "important in understanding more about mis- and disinformation online — A challenge that we must as leaders address."  The prime minister acknowledged that calling to regulate speech online in any way can seem problematic.

DHS Funds Leftist Orgs to Study 'Radicalization,' 'White Supremacy' in Video Games.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which recently said that questioning official narratives on matters like coronavirus policies constitutes a terrorist threat, has awarded nearly $700,000 to left-wing researchers to study radicalization in video games, with a focus on "white supremacy."  "Over the past decade, video games have increasingly become focal points of social activity and identity creation for adolescents and young adults," said DHS in its press release announcing the grant.

The Editor says...
Perhaps instead they should look for black supremacy in the "knockout game," which is a big-city sport these days.

All It Takes Is One Hero.  [Scroll down] While this social revolution burns, it is important to remember two truths: (1) the more vulnerable the globalist totalitarians are, the more vindictive and cruel they will become, and (2) the more destructive they become, the more consequential every single voice will be.  We see the first point clearly today as ventriloquist dummy Joe Biden, his financial and political puppeteers, and the permanent bureaucratic Deep State exercising raw power behind the curtain all work together to portray freedom-minded, pro-Constitution Americans as security threats undeserving of free speech, equal protection under the law, holding elective office, or exercising civil rights.  We see it when the fake president's speechwriters vilify half the country as racists and when Hillary Clinton slanders worshipful Christians praising God as instead executing a Nazi salute.  We see it as Facebook and Twitter openly work with government agents to censor and punish conservative speech.  We see it as Big Tech monopolies, Big Media conglomerates, and financial heavyweights work to blacklist, deplatform, and demonetize any entrepreneur not willing to bow before the new "woke" clergy or pay homage to their race-based, trans-obsessed, climate-crusading, Big Government bottom line.  Anyone who dares fight back against the globalists' cultural cesspool and New World Order must be destroyed.

Are We Just One Big Storm Away Climate Lockdowns?  While we never thought that the coronavirus pandemic was engineered to soften us up for harsher climate lockdowns to come later, we did note that our ruling class was watching our reactions to its repressive rules to see how far it could go the next time.  Today we're alarmed that "the next time" might be here soon.  In November 2020, we said we were afraid that the country was being conditioned to just take whatever is dished out by power-hungry officials, elected and unelected, and were troubled that Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, could say "now is the time to do what you're told" with minimal condemnation and no demands that he be fired.  Nearly two years later, it's clear that our concerns were justified.

DOJ Harasses Citizens for Exercising Their First Amendment Rights.  The Justice Department has hit the Eagle Forum of Alabama with a voluminous subpoena that violates the organization's First Amendment rights to speak freely, engage in the political process, and talk to their elected representatives.  It's an intimidation tactic, pure and simple, and shows just how partisan the department has become.  This out-of-control behavior should scare every citizen and volunteer organization, no matter where they stand on the political or social spectrum.  Eagle Forum is a very small non-profit in Alabama.  It only has one full-time employee and a second, part-time employee.  Virtually all of its work on issues of interest to its members is done by volunteers.

The DOJ and FBI are beyond fixing.  Republicans and conservatives like to say that we must reform the Justice Department and FBI.  I disagree.  If we win the majority in Congress, they both need to be gone.  That means completely gone, with no attempt to reform or rebuild them.  That may sound like an overreach but the time to restore our constitutional republic is upon us.  Do any of us really believe that we are somehow safer or more secure with an intact DOJ and FBI? They are irredeemably corrupt.  Weeding out some of the more sinister miscreants within those organizations will not change the culture that has evolved over the past few decades.  We have already tried that, and it made matters worse.  We should thank Barack Obama and Joe Biden for clearly illustrating to the American people the dangers inherent in an enforcement arm of the federal government.  We are now living in a police state that will, through intimidation and force, move the country toward one-party rule and totalitarianism.

The Coming Outlawing of the Republican Party.  Republicans want to hold the majority and co-exist with Democrats, while Democrats, under the influence of the Left, want to eliminate Republicans.  This fundamental difference between the two sides was on display during Biden's fascist rant in Philadelphia where he denounced half the country as a threat to democracy.  And it would be a mistake to imagine that all the talk of a "threat to democracy" is mere rhetoric.  Another basic difference between the two parties is that Republicans are politically unserious.  Politicians, pundits and influencers spend so much time virtue signaling that they think words don't matter.  Democrats are quite serious.  The Republican refusal to take them at their word, to believe that their histrionic rhetoric represents a serious policy agenda, is why things are so bad.  Surely, Beltway GOP figures will reassure, Democrats aren't serious about adding states, Supreme Court seats, a trillion dollar coin or using unlimited dictatorial executive authority.  But what if they are?

Connections, Facebook Spies on Private Messages and DHS Uses Private Chats Against J6 Detainees.  This 'surveillance system' has been of great interest to CTH for several years, in part because it is a key aspect of the domestic intelligence system now operating as a functioning part of the Fourth Branch of Government.  The overwhelming majority of the investigative resources within the Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) are used in this whole of network monitoring system.  I cannot emphasize the importance of the connections enough.  Surveillance of domestic communication, to include surveillance of all social media platforms, is now the primary mission of DHS. The information is gathered by social media, funneled by direct portals into the DHS network then distributed to DOJ-NSD and FBI officials as well as the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.  This communication surveillance network is what DHS, created as an outcome of the Patriot Act, is all about.

The art of destroying a nation.  [Scroll down] The point is that regardless of your political position, race, sex, or religion, this country was founded on the principles of free speech, freedom to practice your faith, and freedom to raise your family with the values you hold dear.  Nowhere in the Constitution was it written that your freedoms are based on the narrative of the times.  Unfortunately, there are people in power who do not believe that your rights are inalienable.  They manipulate with false narratives and fuel a mob mentality to strip them from you.  This mob mentality is destroying individual thought and common sense — not to mention causing rampant crime, violence, and destruction of private property and businesses.

California Conservatives, Beware: Newsom's 'Commission on the State of Hate' Is More Nefarious Than It Seems.  Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., on Tuesday announced five appointments to his new Commission on the State of Hate, and they don't bode well for conservatives in the Golden State.  According to Newsom's office, the commission will "assess data on hate crimes in California, provide resources for victims, and make policy recommendations to better protect civil rights."  The commission aims to help all Californians, but Newsom has nominated a slate of Democrats and activists — without including a single Republican — to serve on it.  Worse, one of the top nominees has a history at the Southern Poverty Law Center.  Those four words should send a shiver down the spine of conservatives.  While the Southern Poverty Law Center began as a public interest legal nonprofit representing poor people in the South, it has long since morphed into a far-left smear factory, branding mainstream conservative and Christian organizations "hate groups" and placing them on a map alongside the Ku Klux Klan.  It brands socially conservative organizations "anti-LGBT hate groups" and national security nonprofits "anti-Muslim hate groups."

Audits, Recounts, and the Secret Ballot.  [Scroll down] Why not just give up the secret ballot, if it makes it impossible to properly audit an election?  A quick scan of recent news stories provides our answer:
  •   Dozens of unknown private citizens languished in jail for over a year, for trespassing at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, uncharged because there's nothing serious enough to charge them for, but kept in jail to "justify" a national political attack on their movement.
  •   The FBI issued a flurry of subpoenas to forty Trump allies such as businessman Mike Lindell, less than two months before the midterms.
  •   Donald Trump himself, a former president, had his house raided and documents seized on a sham warrant signed by a judge with a conflict of interest as big as one of Trump's hotels.
  •   DoJ whistleblowers revealed to the New York Post that the FBI and Meta colluded to illegally gather and study American civilians' private 'facebook messages' in a broad-based and ultimately fruitless attempt to find conservatives on whom they could stick a "domestic terrorist" label.
These examples are just the tip of the iceberg.  We have the secret ballot for a reason.  Individual Americans have the right to be free of risk that the political class might single them out for harassment, denial of government services, or worse.  As we've seen, such retaliation by a vindictive state can range from refusing your garbage pickup and shutting off your water, to ransacking your home with a politically-motivated search warrant or locking you up.

Shut up, they explained.  President Biden has already mused that the US government has F-15s ready to go should they be needed to suppress the MAGA crowd.  They have even invented a term for people who think and talk like you and me: stochastic terrorists.  A quick search on Google for the term "stochastic terrorism" (the neologism being used to describe the violence of unapproved speech) shows a disturbing growth in the use of the term.  (Stochastic terrorism:  "The use of mass public communication, usually against a particular individual or group, which incites or inspires acts of terrorism which are statistically probable but happen seemingly at random.")  [Illustration]  Fear not, readers.  The Brookings Institution is here to root out stochastic terrorism and aid in its suppression.  And since we live in the Internet age, it may yet be possible to avoid the use of using Hellfire missiles and drones and resort to less kinetic tactics, such as deplatforming the offenders.  After all, hunting down and killing these dangerous free thinkers should only be a last resort.  They are now rating podcasts in a manner that is reminiscent of the Chinese Social Credit score.

The Biden Administration Isn't Interested In Governing But In Criminalizing The Opposition.  Just to be clear: the Jan. 6 committee Democrats are proposing that anyone who thinks there was fraud in the 2020 election, anyone who thinks the election was something less than perfect, is fair game for hauling before the committee, being harassed by the FBI, having his property confiscated, maybe even indicted.  In their world, having the wrong opinion about the election is tantamount to a crime.  You might even get a visit from the FBI — better not delete your emails or destroy your devices.  (That only works if your last name rhymes with Flinton.)  Whatever the committee ends up doing, rest assured it is part of a larger effort to go beyond mere political theater and use the levers of government power to ensure that Trump cannot run again, that his supporters are under investigation, and that anyone who disagrees with the regime about the last election has a target on their back.

Attention Conservatives: They're Coming For Your Podcasts Next.  Conservatives have found a way to communicate that is free from Big Tech censors.  But how long will it last?  Over the weekend, the liberal Brookings Institution released what it calls "a tool to monitor political broadcasts" on increasingly popular podcasts.  Why?  To combat "misinformation."  Brookings treats the growth of podcasts the way Count Floyd would describe one of his movies on the classic Monster Chiller Horror Theater sketch on SCTV.  "Ooh, that's scary, kids, scary!"  Podcasts, it warns, "played a central role in disseminating election fraud narratives in the lead up to January 6."  Scary, kids!

Now, they are coming for your car.  The automobile is arguably the most liberating invention in history, or at least is in the top five of all time.  It allows people to travel anywhere at any time at fast speeds.  The increase in mobility from mass auto ownership has been a major driver of increased incomes and wealth.  One of the best ways to help low-income people out of poverty is to get them a car so they can drive to jobs that may be located far outside their neighborhoods.  Perhaps it is the very independence and autonomy that cars give individuals that the collectivists on the left hate.  Liberals have been trying to push Americans into mass transit buses and trains for decades to no avail.  Today, less than 5% of all trips are using mass transit.  Except for those in major congested cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles and New York, everyone wants their own car.  Under the new California law, after 2035, you will have to either buy and drive an electric vehicle, take the bus or lace up your sneakers and walk to work.

What is the Conservative plan to deal with Biden's fourth reich?  The time has come for a coalition of governors, attorneys general, and state legislators to demonstrate the power of broad-based federalism to interpose against extreme federal tyranny.  Many conservative commentators have finally woken up to smell the stench of the Fourth Reich following Biden's speech targeting political opposition, reminiscent of the authoritarian language of past dictators.  However, they should have been awake since March 2020, when our government declared de facto martial law on our lives, liberty, and property and used our bodies as lab rats with an ever-growing list of experimental therapies.  They should have awoken from their slumber after Americans were targeted with solitary confinement and disproportionate punishment for zero or nebulous crimes at the Capitol on January 6, after months of killing, rioting, and looting by BLM with impunity.  If Biden's speech is really to be a turning point in this one-sided cold war that is heating up, conservatives should resolve to use the power they already wield over Republican governors and demand united action for states to protect constitutional rights from this thuggish Biden administration and national security deep state apparatus that threatens our liberties more than any foreign enemy in our history.  Rather than making idle promises of winning back the House with RINOs or winning back the presidency years from now when it's too late, we should be demanding action now from 20 or so GOP trifecta-controlled state governments.  If they fail to take action now, then the entire point of federal elections with divided government is moot.

Democrats Dangerously Copy The Tactics Of Famous Fascists.  [Scroll down] When Americans stood up to school boards, complaining about their children being exposed to sexualization in schools or being accused of being racists because of the color of their skin, Biden's Justice Department branded them as terrorists.  The Biden administration's threatening, intimidating, and jailing of its opposition set the backdrop for Joe Biden's extraordinary speech on September 1, when he stated, "Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic."  This was not a campaign speech; this was the President officially addressing American citizens... and calling 70 million of them terrorists.  This brings us back to Germany in 1932.

The regime of censorship being imposed on the internet  ... by a consortium of DC Dems, billionaire-funded "disinformation experts," the US Security State, and liberal employees of media corporations — is dangerously intensifying in ways I believe are not adequately understood.  A series of "crises" have been cynically and aggressively exploited to inexorably restrict the range of permitted views, and expand pretexts for online silencing and deplatforming.  Trump's election, Russiagate, 1/6, COVID and war in Ukraine all fostered new methods of repression. [...] It is astonishing to watch Dems and their allies in media corporations posture as opponents of "fascism" -- while their main goal is to unite state and corporate power to censor their critics and degrade the internet into an increasingly repressive weapon of information control.  A major myth that must be quickly dismantled:  political censorship is not the by-product of autonomous choices of Big Tech companies.  This is happening because DC Dems and the US Security State are threatening reprisals if they refuse.  [Thread reader]

Thousands of Xcel customers [are] locked out of thermostats during 'energy emergency'emergency.  During the dog days of summer, it's important to keep your home cool.  But when thousands of Xcel customers in Colorado tried adjusting their thermostats Tuesday, they learned they had no control over the temperatures in their own homes.  Temperatures climbed into the 90s Tuesday, which is why Tony Talarico tried to crank up the air conditioning in his partner's Arvada home.  "I mean, it was 90 out, and it was right during the peak period," Talarico said.  "It was hot."  That's when he saw a message on the thermostat stating the temperature was locked due to an "energy emergency."

22,000 Colorado Households Lose Control of Their Home Thermostats During Heat Wave as Power Company Locks Out Air Conditioning Use.  Comrades, a heatwave hit the Colorado region Tuesday with temperatures exceeding 90 degrees.  Indoor temperatures began climbing, and when formerly free-range residents attempted to adjust their air conditioning, they discovered they were locked out from control in their own home as the power company took over.

The American Gestapo.  The DOJ has been weaponized for years, and every single one of our 18 intelligence agencies is likewise politicized, including our military.  Many are funded by largely classified budgets.  Agencies you'd never suspect would need firearms are now armed. [...] The Department of Homeland Security, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the IRS are three of the largest and most dangerous agencies to citizens of the once free republic, and they're all heavily armed.

It's All Rigged Beyond Imagination.  The failing intelligence deep state regime is desperately trying to save itself by provoking an armed uprising that can be blamed on conservatives and Trump supporters.  They need this revolt to bury the damning facts that are now emerging about the FBI's election interference (Hunter Biden's laptop), covid vaccines killing people (the dead bodies are becoming too numerous to ignore) and the shocking truth about the engineered collapse of food, energy and supply chains worldwide.  (People will starve and freeze this winter, all across western nations.)  The people are waking up like never before, which means the deep state must try to invoke more violence than ever before.  This is why the narrative is being promulgated that claims conservatives are "semi-fascists," even though the real fascism comes from the radical Left that rigged the election, destroyed America's economy with covid lockdowns and shattered the First Amendment by ordering Big Tech to censor all dissenting views.  Now, the deep state wants to bait Americans into an armed, violent uprising.  They're got the tools to achieve it, too, since deep state jerk-offs are, in fact, master baiters.  The coming indictment of President Trump is part of the provocation scheme designed to whip up the American people into an emotional state of revolt.  And if that's not enough, my sources tell me Democrats are making a highly organized attempt to rig the 2022 midterms and maintain control over both the House of the Senate, after which gun confiscation laws will be passed and signed into law to further provoke American conservatives into an attempted uprising.

The Trouble With Trudeau.  As a graduate of the World Economic Forum's (WEF) Young Global Leaders Programme and a disciple of its founder Klaus Schwab, Trudeau enjoys an intimate relationship with the proponents of the Great Reset that seeks to replace the successful free-market system of Western nations with an oligarchic model of top-down governance and corporatist domination, presumably for the benefit of all its "stakeholders."  What could go wrong?  Plenty.  The WEF is obviously in a close, symbiotic relation with the CCP.  It touts the necessity of constant surveillance to ensure compliance with its mandates and decrees, an agenda, in Jeffrey Tucker's words, of "technocratic central planning rooted in deep suspicion of basic tenets of freedom."  The human being will be subject to enhanced biosecurity protocols, synthetic biology, detector algorithms, advanced AI, and genetic editing.  The object is total control over the life of the individual, allowing the government to monitor all one's activities — where we travel, what we buy, how we spend, where we save and invest, what we write, where we work, how many booster shots we have received, and so on.  If we donate to the "wrong" cause or run afoul of social media, our credit card or passport can be instantly invalidated.  The state's credentialing system is all-powerful.

Who are the Good Guys?  There are actions and events contemplated by the ruling Democrats that threaten us at our most basic level.  For example, the doubling of the size of the IRS is a profound political statement.  On one hand, it's a statement that the government needs more of your money, that even with record-high tax receipts, it's not enough.  On the other hand, it's a statement of control.  You may remember last year the Biden proposal to give the IRS routine access to your bank accounts.  Public opinion was so universally against this draconian idea that it was quietly dropped.  Having been stymied there, Biden and the Democrats created an omnibus spending bill that is much more about control of the populace and staying in power than anything having to do with bringing down inflation.

There Are Now More Armed Bureaucrats Than There Are U.S. Marines.  The IRS has stockpiled 4,500 guns and five million rounds of ammunition in recent years, including 621 shotguns, 539 long-barrel rifles and 15 submachine guns.  The Veterans Administration (VA) purchased 11 million rounds of ammunition (equivalent to 2,800 rounds for each of their officers), along with camouflage uniforms, riot helmets and shields, specialized image enhancement devices and tactical lighting.  The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) acquired 4 million rounds of ammunition, in addition to 1,300 guns, including five submachine guns and 189 automatic firearms for its Office of Inspector General.  According to an in-depth report on "The Militarization of the U.S. Executive Agencies," the Social Security Administration secured 800,000 rounds of ammunition for their special agents, as well as armor and guns.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) owns 600 guns.  And the Smithsonian now employs 620-armed "special agents."

All Republicans are now terrorists.  Last week, Financial Times Associate Editor Edward Luce tweeted that Republicans are the most "dangerous" political force in the world, bar none. "I've covered extremism and violent ideologies around the world," he said, and "I have never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous & contemptible than today's Republicans.  Nothing close."  Former CIA Director Michael Hayden chimed in immediately and said, "I agree."  This past Tuesday, Democrat adviser Kurt Bardella called all Republicans a "domestic terrorist cell."  MSNBC's Tiffany Cross agreed and said there should be no distinction between Republicans and "right-wing extremists."  At the same time, Peter Wehner, a contributing writer for The Atlantic, likened the Republican Party to a "dagger pointed at the throat of American democracy."  All this while the FBI Director Christopher Wray added that any American flying the Gadsden — "Don't Tread On Me" — flag is suspect of violent extremism.

Unconstitutional security state targets Trump.  [The federal government] knows no bounds and has assumed powers nowhere granted in the Constitution by the sheer force of its own will.  It has created a security state, replete with three lettered acronymic-named agencies — FBI, CIA, DEA, NSA, DIA — that are nowhere recognized in the Constitution, regularly break the written and moral laws, and are themselves far more dangerous to human freedom than the folks they pursue.  How many laws have the feds broken?  Ha.  No one knows how many criminal laws Congress has enacted.  Estimates range from 4,400 to 5,500.  How can this be?  For starters, members of Congress in both parties rarely if ever read the legislation they enact.  House members were given 15 minutes to read the 132-page Patriot Act, which passed overwhelmingly.  And much federal law is so convoluted that a simple reading leaves even an experienced lawyer and judge bewildered as to how many different behaviors were made criminal by the statute in question.

Think the FBI Deserves the Benefit of the Doubt?  Whistleblowers claim the FBI is inflating the number of "domestic violent extremism" cases to fit President Biden's overarching narrative that home-grown extremism is the nation's worst national security threat.  "From recent protected disclosures, we have learned that FBI officials are pressuring agents to reclassify cases as 'domestic violent extremism' even if the cases do not meet the criteria for such a classification," Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, wrote in July, detailing whistleblower allegations in a letter to Wray.  "Given the narrative pushed by the Biden Administration that domestic violent extremism is the 'greatest threat' facing our country, the revelation that the FBI may be artificially padding domestic terrorism data is scandalous."

The Justice System Has Gone Beria.  The DOJ's and FBI's recent actions have opened my eyes.  American justice isn't blind.  The system is rigged, no longer along racial (or religious) lines but along political ideology.  The DOJ has a two-tiered justice system — one system that targets and is onerously harsh on Republicans and conservatives while being lax and protective of Democrats and liberals.  This unequal justice has been in place for at least 10 years but has gotten much worse since President Trump's arrival.  A recent survey (last week) by the Trafalgar Group found that 79% of Americans believe we have two tiers of justice — one system for politicians and D.C. insiders and another system for everyone else.  The belief in unequal justice holds true for Democrats (67%), Republicans (88%), and Independents (77%).  Unequal justice is not just in law enforcement, it's everywhere — every major institution is aligned to empower, and keep in power, the Democrat regime.  The entire federal bureaucracy, media, academia, business, Big Tech, Big Pharma, and the military are fully aligned to keep Democrats in power.

Toward a Saner Government.  [Scroll down]  Millions upon millions of people the world over are not buying.  They know that the New World Order of these new messiahs, now being rammed down their throats, means global dictatorship, headed by enemies of humanity.  By their actions, the promoters of this Orwellian dystopia have proved that their qualifications for improving life on earth is nonexistent.  From the evidence, and lately from their rhetoric, it is obvious that their empathy for fellow human beings approaches zero.  People still able to think will not follow leaders that have no use for them except as slaves.  Let it sink in that it was the plight of such tyranny that formed this nation and endowed it with protections against its recurrence.  Yes, I speak of a constitutional republic, now under ruthless attack.

Will the United States Exist After November?  The Nazi serving as US Attorney General says he is going to get the warrant unsealed that he used as the justification for the aggressive invasion of President Trump's home by a weaponized and politicized FBI, essentially frame up artists for the corrupt Democrat party.  The question the Nazi attorney general doesn't answer, and the question the presstitutes studiously avoid asking, is why was the warrant containing the probable cause for the unprecedented invasion of an American president's home sealed in the first place?  Little doubt the official explanation will be a lie, one that the presstitutes will repeat endlessly in their attempt to turn the lie into truth via repetition, just as they did with "Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction," "Assad's use of chemical weapons," ad infinitum.  My take on the situation is that there is no probable cause.

[It Will Be As If] America Never Existed.  It is possible (not certain, but possible) that within the next 20 years or so, the United States will no longer exist.  That would be a great setback for human liberty.  The end of the American republic would most likely mean the end of self-government all over the globe — the beginning of a new dark age.  The United States, even now, is the world's greatest example of constitutional democracy, and if the cause of freedom fails here, it probably will not survive anywhere.  More than that, however, the end of liberty on these shores would most likely mean the end of any memory of America.  The United States would not simply cease to exist; it would never have existed at all.  What I mean by that is not only the Orwellian idea of rewriting history.  That theme has become almost a cliché nowadays.  Certainly, propaganda such as the "1619 Project" and the daily efforts by the establishment media to shape the narrative, are essential to the woke oligarchy's power.  "Who controls the past controls the future," Orwell observed, "who controls the present controls the past."  What I want to explore, however, is something less obvious and more insidious.

The complete Sovietization of the Democrat party.  The Democrats are so determined to destroy Trump, they are willing to reveal their true colors:  They are all Stalinist communists now.  They've just rammed through a nearly $800 billion bill that will obviously exacerbate inflation, as well as transform the IRS into a Gestapo-like agency, armed and dangerous to all Americans but for the very wealthy.  Small businesses that survived the lockdowns will now be stamped out by the higher taxes, audits, and regulations within this destructive bill.  The billions of green agenda requirements in the bill will force us all into energy deficits that will further devastate our already ruined economy and our quality of life.  That is their goal, their endgame.

Gadsden flag
FBI Training Materials Designate Gadsden Flag and Historic American Symbols as Evidence of Militia Violent Extremists.  Project Veritas has obtained whistleblower materials from official FBI training and instruction, highlighting images that are defined as evidence of Militia Violent Extremists or MVE's.  Among the material now identified by the FBI as extreme are pictures of the Gadsden flag, Betsy Ross flag, Patriot symbols, Molon Labe and a host of other historic images that are now defined as evidence of Militia Violent Extremism.


FBI Whistleblower Leaks Bureau's 'Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide' on 'Militia Violent Extremists' Citing Ashli Babbitt as MVE Martyr.  Project Veritas released a newly leaked document today provided by an FBI whistleblower, which shows how the Bureau classifies American citizens it deems to be potential "Militia Violent Extremists" [MVEs].  In the document, the FBI cites symbols, images, phrases, events, and individuals that agents should look out for when identifying alleged domestic terrorists.  The "Unclassified/Law Enforcement Sensitive" document says it is for "FBI Internal Use Only."  Of note, under the "Symbols" section, is a prominent citation of the Second Amendment, where it explains that "MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a 'well regulated Militia,' as well as the right to bear arms."  Right below that, under the "Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery and Quotes" section, Revolutionary War images such as the Gadsden Flag and the Betsy Ross Flag are listed.  Each flag displayed in the document comes with a brief description of what it means.

The FBI classes constitutional American values and images as violent extremism.  Yesterday [8/2/2022], Project Veritas published a leaked internal FBI document in which the FBI sets out the hallmarks of suspected "militia violent extremists."  Unsurprisingly, in Joe Biden's America, those indicia significantly overlap with broadly-held, longstanding conservative values.

When The Just Go to Prison.  Daniel Hale, dressed in a khaki uniform, his hair cut short and sporting a long, neatly groomed brown beard, is seated behind a plexiglass screen, speaking into a telephone receiver at the federal prison in Marion, Illinois. [...] Hale is one of a few dozen people of conscience who have sacrificed their careers and their freedom to inform the public about government crimes, fraud and lies.  Rather than investigate the crimes that are exposed and hold those who carried them out to account, the two ruling parties wage war on all who speak out.  These men and women of conscience are the lifeblood of journalism.  Reporters cannot document abuses of power without them.  The silence on the part of the press over Hale's imprisonment, as well as the persecution and imprisonment of other champions of an open society, such as Julian Assange, is stunningly shortsighted.  If our most important public servants, those with the courage to inform the public, continue to be criminalized at this rate, we will cement in place total censorship, resulting in a world where the abuses and crimes of the powerful are shrouded in darkness.

Washington D.C. Is Run By the Enemies of the American People.  The accumulation of excessive power has made the federal government a self-serving and self-preserving entity unaccountable to the American people and operating outside of constitutional constraints.  The U.S. government has become a corrupt one-party state, composed of mutually supportive Democrat and Republican politicians, administered by a permanent dictatorial bureaucracy, all controlled by transnational interests, who plunder American assets for personal power and profit, while attempting to maintain the illusion of democracy. Once exposed, when blatant and outrageous lies are no longer sufficient to soothe the electorate into complacency, such a government must curtail freedom and oppress the people in order to retain power.  The politically contaminated Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have created a two-tier justice system, in which those serving the one-party state are never held accountable for their crimes, while opponents of federal overreach and malfeasance are treated like Soviet-era political prisoners without rights or due process.

'Build Back Better' Bill Would Fund 86,000 Additional IRS Agents To Sic On American Taxpayers.  If you think that Democrats' tax-and-spending bill wouldn't expand government, have I got news for you.  Believe it or not, the Build Back Better legislation would more than double the size of the IRS.  That's one of the hidden details in the agreement that Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., cut with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., behind closed doors.  And of course, Democrats want to ram it through Congress within a matter of days.  As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., once said about another big-government scheme, "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."  The draft bill contains an $80 billion "investment" in the Internal Revenue Service.  Of that amount, more than half, or over $45.6 billion, will go towards enforcement activities.  Even as it doles out such vast sums for the IRS, the bill contains only a few short pages of text explaining the provisions.  In other words, the IRS will have a relatively wide berth to spend the new funding as it likes.

Trust the Artificial Intelligence Part One.  Even before the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, faith in institutions was at an all-time low — and falling.  In 2022, trust in organized religion was more than four times higher than in Congress.  No branch of government was trusted by more than 50% of the public except the military, not even the police.  Yet this loss in institutional trust coincided with unprecedented demands by institutions for a vast increase in power.  These included the power to regulate nearly anything in the name of stopping the climate from changing; the power to redefine society by proclaiming new 'Woke' values; and the power to control mass movement and require mandatory medication to control a pandemic.  Finally, institutions demanded the power to 'check facts' in any speech and 'de-platform' anyone suspected of uttering misinformation, thus insulating themselves against criticism.

Did You Hear the One about U.S. Internment Camps?  As soon as you see the title, you know you're in trouble — "Army Field Manual 3-39.40: Internment and Resettlement Operations."  When you click on the link, as thousands already have, you get a 326-page PDF describing how the U.S. military would go about imprisoning and relocating massive populations — it's a best-practice document for rounding up thousands of militants in a foreign country or in the event of a massive terrorist attack or natural disaster on U.S. soil.  Wait, what was that last part?  A handful of references to domestic applications — the prospective internment and resettlement of U.S. citizens — have fueled the spread of FM 3-39.40 like wildfire through the world of online political dissent, where it is being discussed by everyone from the Patriot movement on the right to Occupy on the left to Anonymous, anarchists, organized racists, survivalists, and plain old conspiracy theorists in between.

What Biden's 'climate change emergency' is REALLY about.  Glenn Beck reveals how climate academics and activists have been gaming this out for years.  They know exactly what they are going to do once Biden pulls the trigger.  So many scary options become available once a national emergency is declared.  [Video clip]

The Psyop of the Great Collapse and the New Social Contract.  [Scroll down]  But it suddenly hit me that what "they" are telling us through the press is never an accident — it is always propaganda.  Which means that the fear they are creating about the "coming crisis" is THE POINT — at least for the moment.  Very similar to what "they" did during the Corona scare, "they" are now using new kinds of boogeymen.  From a psyop perspective it is completely independent from whether, and to what extent, the heralded next threat is unreal (Covid) or somewhat more real (total collapse) — the point is to keep the populace on edge.  It is about shaping a master and servant type of psychological relationship between the state and its subjects.

The Ultimate Goal:  Perpetual Dumbing Down of All Society in Order to Create a Slave State Ruled by the Few.  What must it be like to live in a state of mind where everything that happens in this human life is thought to be natural, unplanned, coincidence, or somehow unavoidable?  The requirement for this devoid state of unconsciousness, is to exist in a world of cliches and regurgitation of the thoughts of others; mostly strangers.  This is the belief of the masses, not because they had no choice in the matter, or spontaneously chose to be so trusting, but because they have been conditioned for generations to act and accept the propagandized lies fed to them throughout their lives by those state players with very nefarious agendas.  All this deceit is but a programed mass marketing of disinformation, an indoctrination of the many for the benefit of the few, through a plethora of brainwashing techniques.  The only cure for such a circumstance as this, is to first learn to accept that something is terribly amiss, and then find the courage to search for the truth.  This requires real research and education, not the 'schooling' that most all have been subject to since birth, and this is why those who never accept and always question false authority, continue to write, speak, and plead with their fellow men in an attempt to wake the sleeping giant that is the general population.  All that is necessary in order to see some light, should one really desire to see the light, is to understand that evil exists, and that it exists almost everywhere.

WEF Calls for an End to Private Car Ownership.  The World Economic Forum (WEF) is calling for the end of private car ownership in the name of saving the world from climate change by reducing the need for green tech resources.  "We need a clean energy revolution, and we need it now," the WEF begins its article.  According to the WEF, critical metals, such as cobalt, lithium, and nickel — all of which are used in "clean energy technologies" — are in short supply.  And while the WEF says recycling old tech that uses these metals could lessen the impact of shortages, it's simply not enough.

The Editor says...
Wait a minute.  They were going to save the world from global warming by switching to "green tech resources," and now they want to save the world from global warming by "reducing the need for green tech resources."  Here's how to reduce the demand for "green tech resources:"  Go back to gasoline!  Then deal with global warming when it becomes a tangible problem — which will never happen.

Biden Pledges Increases in OSHA Workplace Inspections as Part of Climate Change Compliance System.  Joe Biden has pledged to increase his use of executive power in order to deconstruct the U.S. energy system and recreate a Green New Deal energy economy using windmills and solar power to generate electricity.  Today, Biden kicked-off the first round of executive orders.  [Tweet]  The first round of executive orders is essentially payments to low income Americans for the increased costs of Biden's new energy programs.

Canada's 'expert' panel recommends the mentally ill be candidates for euthanasia.  Canada's medical assistance in dying (MAiD) law is already the most permissive euthanasia and assisted-suicide legislation in the world.  Understandably controversial in itself, there are many horror stories surrounding its implementation. [...] To some degree, mental illness is in the eye of the beholder.  It can be quite subjective and has historically been used as a tool to advance totalitarian political agendas.  Hence, the gulags and "re-education camps."  Don't believe in global warming?  Are you an anti-vaxxer?  Trump supporter?!  Didn't vote for  Xi jinping  Justin Trudeau?  Driving an 18-wheeler in a "Freedom Convoy?"  Then you are, sadly, mentally ill.

Covid and Climate Change:  Wake up, before it's too late.  [Scroll down]  All the years I spent arguing over technical details trying to persuade our "useful idiot" politicians to see sense were a total waste of effort.  The climate change scam finally makes sense when you accept it has nothing to do with the climate and everything to do with a supra-governmental Malthusian agenda of de-industrialisation and de-population, a long-term plan of attack relative to the quick-fire Covid "plandemic" attack.  Reiner Fuellmich and his colleagues have done a brilliant job of joining all the dots to expose this reality.

There's No Despot So Tyrannical As A Green Politician.  Reports of unrest over environmental policies from the Netherlands and Sri Lanka are much more than novelty news.  What is happening in both spots is a lesson that has to be learned quickly.  If not, there's deep trouble ahead.  Dutch farmers, whose history of crop yields puts them among the most productive in the world, continue to protest rules that limit their use of nitrogen, a nutrient in commercial fertilizers that converts to nitrous oxide, which is feared as a greenhouse gas.  Officials expected them to cut use 50% nationally, which means in some regions, the reductions will be as high as 95%.  The crippled farmers, their survival under attack, are, as they should be, revolting.

A Recipe for Biden Authoritarianism.  [Scroll down]  Biden on Saturday signed what some call the most significant gun control measure in decades, a bipartisan compromise that includes a provision to help states put in place red flag laws making it easier for authorities to confiscate weapons from those adjudged as dangerous.  Despite the Supreme Court's ruling Friday upholding the Second Amendment, we know that the Biden administration will unfairly use anything and everything at its disposal to drive its narrative and silence political opponents.  That's part of the reason the Department of Homeland Security's short-lived "disinformation" board received such deserved pushback from many Americans.  Although DHS officially paused its Disinformation Governance Board, let's not be so naïve as to believe the board was the be-all, end-all of the Biden administration's thought control efforts.

Under Biden's DHS, all dissenters are now 'domestic extremists'.  The problem with fundamentally transforming a great, freedom-loving nation into something else is that not everyone is in favor of the idea.  Building support for your position with a better argument than your detractors can be a slow, frustrating process.  The faster, more Machiavellian route is to declare your critics to be enemies of the state, deserving of both marginalization from decent society and denial of their basic rights as citizens.  In its goal to make America more amenable to a ubiquitous, Big Brother-like federal government and its corresponding illiberal policies, the current occupants of White House and its tentacle agencies have borrowed the tactics of some of history's most oppressive despots.  The result will be a chilling effect on free speech and the airing of legitimate grievances against our government.

Neil Oliver:  The Great Resetters are Intent on Retaining Post-Pandemic Power and Control Through Fear and Finance.  Neil Oliver uses language to hack the great red pill vending machine and feed the masses.  In his weekly monologue today, Oliver notes the great resetters, the alliance of multinational corporations and government leaders, are intent on using fear and finance to build the post-covid control mechanisms over the people within western society.  Create massive costs, destabilize the people, manipulate the crisis and leave the common family left trying to figure out what is happening.  Government and bankers using fear and finance respectively; both leveraged against the people, while drumbeating the continued nonsense of climate change and the need to 'save the planet'.  [Video clip]

The Citizenry's Willingness to Surrender their Freedoms Risks a Potential Dissolution or Civil War.  Over the past two decades, far too many citizens of the United States have willingly surrendered their rights and freedoms and now they are on the cusp of being unrestorable.  This erosion and voluntary forfeiture have empowered the ruling elites/radical left.  Ominous societal conditions have been created that risk national dissolution or a civil war.  Three events in the past twenty-one years have been the primary catalysts that have accelerated and exacerbated this seemingly irreversible outcome.  The first: the reaction to the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001; the second: the election of Barack Obama; and the third: the lockdown and medical tyranny of the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic.  After the events of September 11, 2001, Congress, with no outcry from the populace and near unanimous agreement from both political parties, passed the Patriot Act and other legislation.  These laws expanded the definition of terrorism and the government's ability to define, at their whim, what "terrorism" is.  Further, the government was granted near unlimited power to combat whatever was defined as "terrorism."  Within less than ten years that power was turned against the American people and new catch phrases began to be used by the ruling class: "white supremacy" and "domestic terrorism".  A new era was spawned which allowed the government to use its newly acquired powers to spy on and intimidate innocent Americans at home and abroad.

Team of Fools:  Biden's Cabinet Picks Prove He is Unfit to Lead.  [Scroll down]  Attorney General Merrick Garland is Biden's henchman for the administration's 1984 agenda.  Garland has made it clear that parents protesting the woke indoctrination of their children are domestic terrorists.  He has directed the FBI and U.S. attorney offices to crack down on parents by characterizing their protests, which are completely legal, as crimes.  "Attorney General Garland is weaponizing the DOJ," said Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, "by using the FBI to pursue concerned parents and silence them through intimidation."  Garland has referred to January 6th as an "invasion."  He said it was the most dangerous threat to American democracy ever.  According to Steve McCann in American Thinker, Garland identified the protestors as "domestic extremists," which has become a euphemism for Republicans.  "He wants you to believe and wants history to record," said Tucker Carlson, "that January 6th was an attempted insurrection by white supremacist revolutionaries bent on taking over this country.  Because of January 6th, we must now use law enforcement and military force to arrest, imprison, and otherwise crush anyone who leads opposition to Joe Biden's government.  That's their position," said Carlson.  "They say it out loud."

The Left Is Already Proving How Dangerous Red Flag Laws Are.  A "red flag law" is something that, on the surface, seems like a common-sense idea.  How often have we wondered why authorities hadn't taken weapons away from someone who had clearly indicated that they were dangerous and intent on doing harm.  Uvalde, Parkland, and Buffalo are just a few examples of mass shootings that could have been prevented if action had been taken against an individual clearly signaling their disturbed minds to those around them.  However, once you start to notice the talk around red flag laws, you start to see the holes and flaws in the idea.  It's important to remember that a red flag law is effectively a societal nod to strip someone of their 2nd Amendment right, not because they committed a crime, but because you think they might.

I am going to post a note here I received this morning from a January Sixther.  [Thread reader]  I am a husband and father who has zero criminal history... And I am looking at years in prison AFTER I took a plea.  You may ask why would people take a plea if they are innocent?  Innocent has nothing to do with this as my lawyer has told over and over again.  This is payback.  There are only a handful of representatives in DC that care about us.  The vast majority couldn't care less.  They secretly despise Trump and anyone on the 6th as well.  The DOJ knows this.  There will be no reform of this government.  There will be no going back.  All there is now is the path ahead.  But that path will never lead back to the country we once were.  I watched for 4 years as our government that I pay taxes for, try to impeach and even oust our president with sheer impunity.  Hillary's smearing stunt morphed into a coup that lasted Trumps entire term.  Then I watched the election get stolen from the American people.  So I went to DC to support the way I thought best.  I wasn't violent, I didn't break anything, I didn't steal anything and that doesn't matter.  I lost my 6 figure income, friends, and my family is a wreck.  I had the FBI in my home, I was brought before a judge in shackles.  And I am a lucky one.  I got to remain free till sentencing.  So this is the country that I now live in.  Where the powerful few can attack an elected president attempting to removing him for 4 years and where elections no longer matter.

If You're Reading This Message, You're Ready to Resist Tyranny.  All around us the government Leviathan is feeding and growing.  Center for Disease Control bureaucrats are already defending their unconstitutional pandemic powers as necessary tools that should be permanently "institutionalized."  The U.S. government openly targets citizens for engaging in "unacceptable" speech or holding "unapproved" political views.  Stricter gun laws are barreling toward us.  The national security surveillance state is pervasive.  Treasury and finance ministers are working with their central banks to devise digital currencies for the public that will eventually allow them to sequester citizens' accounts in ways just as bereft of due process as those utilized by the "rules-based international order" to seize Russia's foreign currency reserves as punishment for invading Ukraine.  The Davos Death Cult is using the pretense of a "climate emergency" to justify tracking every individual's personal carbon consumption (i.e., surveilling and cataloguing all human movements, sources of income, associations, and experiences).  Biden's Commie House of Horrors is intentionally unleashing runaway inflation, so that citizens become entirely dependent upon government for personal survival.  Even a cursory glance at humanity's chess board, then, reveals that those with wealth and power are racing to corral the rest of us before we appreciate what's at stake.

The Real Reason the Government Wants to Give the Poor 'Affordable Internet'.  The Biden administration recently signed off on a generous $65 billion in public money for "more accessible and affordable internet" to "close the digital divide": [...] "Health" and "safety" are almost always the excuses for installing digital dystopian surveillance, censorship, and social control systems because public policy think tanks (aided by behavioral psychologists) have determined that these are the most tactical selling points to gain compliance.  COVID-19 is the currently favored justification for universal internet access.  Global connection, for example, is necessary for the effective rollout of "COVID-19 public alert systems," which will function like weather forecasts to determine when digital plantation slaves will be allowed to congregate with one another based on a computer-produced risk assessment:  "The COVID-19 Enforcement and Intervention Team (CEIT) has developed a comprehensive public messaging campaign...  Municipalities, particularly those in higher-risk categories, are strongly encouraged to utilize their public alert systems to keep residents up-to-date and to reinforce public health messages that will mitigate the spread of the virus in their communities."  Your smartphone — and, later on, your implanted digital web interface — will now determine when you're permitted to leave your home.

Our government's executive branch is deliberately destroying liberty.  We live in a bewildering time, not because events are unclear or cause and effect uncertain, but because the status quo is so jarring that we can hardly bring ourselves to face it:  The executive branch of the United States government is waging war on the American nation.  And I mean that quite literally.  The executive branch is seeking to destroy the nation so the national elite can slip a slave collar around the neck of the American survivors, thus clearing the way for the international elite (Schwab, Gates, Xi, Soros, etc.) to slip a slave collar around the neck of the planet.

Canada plans to follow in the path of the world's worst dictators.  Canada's government, headed by its prime minister, Justin Trudeau, has introduced drastic anti-gun legislation that, if passed, will mean (in Trudeau's words) that "it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer, or import handguns anywhere in Canada."  This is one more step in Canada's mostly relentless push (only slightly alleviated during the Stephen Harper administration) to bring all weapons under government control.  This never ends well for a nation's people.

PM Trudeau:  "It Will No Longer Be Possible To Buy, Sell, Transfer, Or Import Handguns Anywhere In Canada".  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks with reporters in Ottawa following his government's tabling of new legislation on gun control.  He is joined by federal ministers Marco Mendicino (public safety), David Lametti (justice), Marci Ien (women and gender equality and youth), and Bill Blair (emergency preparedness), as well as several victims of gun violence.  Among the measures proposed in Bill C-21 are the implementation of a national freeze on the importing, buying, selling, and transferring of handguns; the revoking of firearms licenses of those involved in acts of domestic violence or criminal harassment; and the imposing of increased criminal penalties for gun smuggling and trafficking.

Revealed: Government's secret plans for apocalyptic events included total takeover or shut down of citizens' communication networks.  Newly disclosed documents have revealed the United States government's plans in the event of a potential apocalypses — which include putting the kibosh on all civilian communications during wartime.  The previously classified files, obtained by the NYU nonpartisan nonprofit the Brennan Center for Justice, detail wartime powers the president can enact in the case of a national emergency — such as a nuclear attack.  The center obtained the 500 pages files through a Freedom of Information Act request.  A further 6,000 pages were kept classified.  Several of the files, which were all penned during the administration of George W. Bush, detail a law that permits the president to take over or shut down communications networks in wartime.  The policy, called the Communications Act, asserts that 'during the continuance of a war in which the United States is engaged, the President is authorized, if he finds it necessary for the national defense and security,' to nix civilians' means of communication.

Really Big Brother:  WHO Pandemic Treaty Readies Global Vaccine Passport System.  In the biggest story few are talking about, the World Health Organization has announced plans for an international pandemic treaty that may involve a digital passport and digital ID system.  The treaty would also grant the WHO new governing authority over all 194 UN member states.  The World Health Organization, who totally botched COVID and failed to get tough on China, wants more power to make more decisions over more territories than ever before.  How's that sound?  Members of the House Freedom Caucus, led by Republican Reps.  Scott Perry (R-PA) and Jim Jordan (R-OH), have written a letter to President Joe Biden demanding he oppose the global pandemic treaty or "at the very least, push serious reforms."

The Elites Have Every Intention Of Controlling Our Lives.  From the world's largest gathering of hypocrites at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, we have learned that a personal carbon footprint tracker is in the works.  In the wrong hands, it would be the equivalent of the ankle monitors used to ensure that criminal offenders don't escape their house arrest.  "We're developing, through technology, an ability for consumers to measure their whole carbon footprint," J. Michael Evans, president of Alibaba Group USA, said Tuesday while on a panel discussion on responsible consumption.  "What does that mean?  Where they are traveling.  How they are traveling.  What are they eating.  What they are consuming on the platform."  This will excite the virtue signalers who will be happy to post their carbon footprint scores on social media.  But for the rest of us, those still wishing to live freely, who don't want elites establishing the limits of "responsible consumption," it's deeply troubling.

Defending Sovereignty: The Fight of our Lifetime.  [Scroll down]  And one hard truth learned by the first Trump administration is that the executive branch lacks the power and authority required to replace the entrenched bureaucrats that have become the ruling lords and ladies of the new inverted Totalitarian reality which is the entrenched Federal bureaucracy.  In this new Federal reality, where the culture of government institutions and agencies is damaged beyond repair, real change cannot occur by replacing one figurehead for another.  Corrupted policy can't be easily replaced with good policy.  The ideology, the rule of law, the subverted corporatist regulations are baked in.  The system is rigged.  The unknown (or known) bureaucrats controlling the levers aren't going to let go of that easily.

Proposed Safety Rules Would Give Feds More Control Over Your Car.  Federal regulators are considering new vehicle safety features and requesting public comments about the immediate changes, but it's the agency's future proposals under development that could give pause to consumers who are concerned about privacy.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regulates the auto industry in numerous ways, including the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), which provides consumer information on the safety performance of new vehicles through a star rating system found on the manufacturer's window sticker.  The new features under consideration for NCAP include blind spot detection, blind spot intervention, lane-keeping support, and pedestrian automatic emergency braking.  NHTSA is accepting public comments about the changes through June 8.  But in the supplemental material included in the public comment document, NHTSA also revealed several smart technology features that the agency is developing for future NCAP updates.

Is the COVID Pandemic about to Get Ugly?  For a pandemic to be brought under control, a sufficient part of the population needs to acquire sterilizing immunity so that transmission among individuals can be minimized and herd immunity of the whole population can be achieved.  COVID mass vaccinations have been a medical disaster in the U.S. and many other countries because the vaccines allow high levels of transmission of the virus and block our innate and naturally acquired immunity.  As a result of this high level of COVID infection spread, the current lull in virulence (severe outcomes and deaths) will soon skyrocket to levels far higher than 2020.  This warning that the pandemic is "far from over" comes from Geert Vanden Bossche, a well known vaccinologist based in Belgium who has been ringing alarm bells for over a year.  Geert is not alone in coming to this conclusion, but he is one of the few prominent researchers speaking out.

The True Evil of the World Economic Forum.  Whenever I listen to Klaus Schwab and his Davos Death Cult buddies openly discuss their plans for world domination, I always think, "Are we really going to let another power-hungry German walk us into global conflagration?" For a while there, I believed that Western allies had endured enough death and slaughter from the first two world wars to forge an informal understanding among themselves that uncontrolled German megalomania invariably leads to malignant outcomes for all.  Then came German reunification, and the nation's inevitable economic dominance over all of Europe assured its status as the most powerful member of the European Union. [...] Still, the Americans, Canadians, and Brits would never sit idly by while German powerbrokers remake the world in their image, right?  Wrong!  Just listen to Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, and Boris Johnson all parroting that same Build Back Better Boobery in unison, as if they operated under the influence of some nefarious hive mind.  At first, hearing world leaders squawk identical World Economic Forum talking points was disconcerting.  Then it was nauseating.  Now it just makes them sound like walking, talking robots all under the WEF's control.

Democrats Are Attempting To Jam Through A New Patriot Act That Will Target American Conservatives.  Democrats never let a good crisis go to waste.  After the tragic shooting in Buffalo that left ten dead and three injured, they are renewing calls to pass a bill that will expand the FBI and Department of Homeland Security's powers to investigate domestic terrorism.  Some Republicans were initially supportive of the bill, but after Democrats made a last-minute change to the definition of domestic terrorism that makes it extremely vague, most came out in opposition to it.  RINO warmonger Adam Kinzinger (R-Il.) was the sole Republican to vote in favor of the bill in the House.

Automobile 'kill switch' law [will be] to spy on and control Americans.  The "kill switch law" would potentially allow law enforcement to shut one's car off remotely, and also to track the car's metrics, location, and possibly even passenger load.  The mandate was included under the pretext of helping to cut down on drunk driving while also preventing high-speed chases from occurring.  Such backdoor kill switches work through cars being continuously connected to wireless networks.  Many, if not most, new cars (and virtually all electric cars) already come standard with wireless capability.  Indeed, General Motors pioneered in-car (internet) connectivity more than a decade ago.  It is possible that the law could be challenged or repealed by a future federal government, as privacy issues with the mandate are glaring and obvious.

Tucker Carlson Warns America That Biden is About to Hand the WHO Immense Power Over Our Lives.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson is warning Americans about an ominous 'pandemic treaty' that would hand the World Health Organization immense power over Americans' lives.  [Video clip]  "So what will this operational control mean?" Carlson said.  "Let's be specific right off the bat.  The treaty demands, quote, 'national and global coordinated actions to address the misinformation, disinformation and stigmatization that undermine public health.'  Oh, here we go.  Right to censorship."

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul Announces Police Unit to Combat 'Hate Speech'.  New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) on Wednesday announced plans to create a police unit designed to, in part, combat "hate speech" in the wake of the tragic shooting in Buffalo, promising to "confront this epidemic head-on."  "We're proposing a comprehensive plan to combat domestic terrorism, strengthen state gun laws, & investigate social media platforms promoting violent extremism," Hochul announced Wednesday.

House Passes Domestic Terrorism Bill to Use the FBI to Silence Conservatives Who Disagree With Them.  House Democrats on Wednesday [5/18/2022] passed a Domestic terrorism bill to silence conservatives and those Americans who disagree with them.  Democrats used the mass shooting by a lunatic on Saturday in Buffalo, New York to justify the legislation that will allow the FBI to continue to spy on and harass conservatives and critics of their radical agenda.  The new law is nothing new, throughout history brutal regimes have suppressed criticism from their detractors.  And the Biden regime has been cracking down on conservatives who attended the January 6 protests in Washington DC. Dozens of Trump supporters still languish in prison and many of the political prisoners did not participate in any violence.  Many did not even enter the US Capitol that day.

When Attorney General Merrick Garland's goon squad came for parents.  Last fall, Attorney General Merrick Garland testified before the House Judiciary Committee that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not using counterterrorism statutes to investigate parents who were exercising their First Amendment rights at local school board meetings.  Last week, the House Judiciary Committee produced evidence that Garland's FBI was doing just that.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden vs.  We the People.  The Biden Administration last June unveiled its "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism."  Despite its anodyne-sounding name, the "national strategy" was anything but anodyne.  The pamphlet represented the logical culmination of the Left's cynical use of the January 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot as a means of ginning up large-scale, nationwide anti-Republican/anti-Trump voter sentiment.  The result, evinced again by Attorney General Merrick Garland's disgraceful October 2021 memo directing the FBI to intrude on local school board meetings and crack down on anti-critical race theory parental revolts, has been a roiling cold war waged by the ruling class against us "deplorables" and our political "wrong-think."  Now, seven months after Garland's infamous October 4 memo, the better question to ask is not whether Joe Biden is engaged in a cold war merely against the "deplorables."  We know the answer to that is yes.  Instead, the more relevant question is whether the Biden Administration is now engaged in a cold war against a broader target:  the entire American citizenry.

Biden's 'Kill Switch' For Every Car Threatens Our Freedom Of Movement.  The federal gov't and silicon valley are looking to clamp down on your freedom of movement.  Your ability to move about as you please does not fit with their goals for the future of our world.  Automotive-related freedoms, including access to fuel, allow us to be free to move without the permission of silicon valley and the federal government.  Automotive freedoms are not only hobby related; they are essential to preventing yet another step along the road to serfdom at the hands of woke corporations and federal bureaucrats.  Biden recently signed into law a requirement that all vehicles produced after 2026 be fitted with a remote kill switch.  Electric vehicles are already equipped with this capability via internet-connected "superchargers."  These corporations can sell you a product for tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, then prevent you from using them.  Worse yet, if the law is not challenged or repealed, these kill switches will have a "back door" that allows government agencies to shut your vehicle off remotely as well.

Exposing the Left's Destructive Education Agenda:  They're 'Coming for Your Children'.  Beginning with the 2021 gubernatorial election in Virginia — in which Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe for all practical purposes vowed to keep parents out of the classroom, saying, "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach" — parents began to realize the Democratic Party wanted to leave them behind.  President Joe Biden echoed that sentiment April 27 while speaking to a group of Teachers of the Year, when he told them:  "They're all our children. ... They're not somebody else's children.  They're like yours when they're in the classroom."  Politics aside, the issue at hand is protecting our children from radical ideologies and preserving a parent's right to be a parent.  But the left wants to have a stranglehold on education, to keep parents on the sidelines, and to force them to co-parent with the government, while driving a wedge between parent and child.

Whistleblowers Allege FBI Investigated Parents Opposed to School COVID-19 Policies.  Whistleblowers have alleged that the FBI conducted dozens of investigations into American parents who expressed opposition to schools' COVID-19 mandates, and labeled them with a "threat tag," House Judiciary Committee Republicans claimed in a letter on Wednesday [5/11/2022].  Reps.  Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mike Johnson (R-La.) wrote in a letter to the Justice Department that the "brave whistleblowers" from the FBI had informed them that the agency had reportedly created an internal threat tag called "EDUOFFICIALS" in October 2021 to track alleged threats against school boards, following an Oct. 4 directive from Attorney General Merrick Garland.  That directive came in response to a request from the National School Boards Association asking that the federal government use counterterrorism tools, including the Patriot Act, to target parents at school board meetings, the representatives wrote.

Psaki proclaims the White House controls 'all branches of government'.  Outgoing White House press secretary Jen Psaki has frequently been pressed into action to do damage control over her boss's embarrassing gaffes and, in what may be her final effort to spin away President Joe Biden's mental misfires, she only made matters worse.  On Tuesday [5/10/2022], the "leader" of the free world spoke to the media where he once again sought to duck the blame for the economic woes that Americans are suffering including record gas prices, the worst inflation in four decades, and most recently, a national baby formula shortage which he blamed on COVID and Russian leader Vladimir Putin in more of the same malarkey.

Disinformation Panels, Control over Social Media Content and Now DOJ Environmental Justice.  Barack Obama and Eric Holder did not create a weaponized DOJ and FBI; instead, what they did was take the preexisting system and retool it, so the weapons only targeted one side of the political continuum.  This point is where many people get confused.  Prior to 9/11/01 the greatest threat to government was considered to be from outside the U.S, vis-a-vis terrorism.  After 9/11/01 the greatest threat was redefined, Americans were now considered the threat, the enemy tracking radar was turned around to look inside America.  In the era shortly after 9/11, the DC national security apparatus was constructed to preserve continuity of government and simultaneously view all Americans as potential threats.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) were created specifically for this purpose.  DHS and ODNI were created because Americans were now the threat to government.  Stop.  Pause.  Think.  You are taking off your shoes at the airports because YOU are the threat.  You pass through body scanners because YOU are the threat.  Stop.  Pause.  Think.  How does that define your relationship with government?

Do We Draw the Line at a US Ministry of Truth?  The whole farce of setting up an all-powerful Department of Disinformation (whose only purpose will be to spread disinformation) would be downright comical if we were given a moment's rest to laugh in between the Biden regime's outrageous daily attacks on what's left of the Constitution.  The First Amendment — right at the top, so no future tyrants could miss it — is obviously meaningless if government censors must first approve acceptable speech.  By far and without equivocation, the most important speech deserving of protection from the treachery of government overreach is that speech which the government decries as disinformation!  The First Amendment isn't there for the protection of cookie recipes and weather reports (although those are protected, too).  It's there to make sure that when officials in the federal government betray their oaths and seize illegitimate power for themselves, there are opposing voices that can beat those usurpers down with words before violence becomes inevitable.

'They are all our children': Biden sparks fury from parents by telling teachers that kids are 'yours when they're in the classroom'.  President Joe Biden has reignited the fire among already outraged parents after claiming their children don't belong to them 'when they're in the classroom.'  'They're all our children,' he said Wednesday, addressing educators at the 2022 Teacher of the Year ceremony hosted by the White House.  'They are not somebody's else children.  They're like yours when they're in the classroom.'  Biden also took aim at parents and Republican legislators who have spearheaded efforts to ban books and bar sexually explicit or overly politically correct curriculum.

Jack's Magic Coffee Shop Reports 2nd Quarter Financials, Net Operating Loss of $128 Million.  [Scroll down]  After the Patriot Act was triggered, not coincidentally only six weeks after 9/11, a slow and dangerous fuse was lit that ends with the intelligence apparatus being granted a massive amount of power.  The problem with assembled power is always what happens when a Machiavellian network takes control over that power and begins the process to weaponize the tools for their own malicious benefit.  That is exactly what Barack Obama was all about.  The Obama network took pre-assembled intelligence weapons we should never have allowed to be created, and turned those weapons into tools for his radical and fundamental change.  The target was the essential fabric of our nation.  Ultimately, this corrupt political process gave power to create the Fourth Branch of Government, the Intelligence Branch.  From that perspective the fundamental change was successful.

Prepping the Mind.  Many see the troubles coming.  The economics are unsustainable, the energy (with their successful plan) is unsustainable, the culture that made America great is being eaten alive by massive waves of illegal immigration from the southern border; a farming capacity that's been systematically dismantled, an oil industry that's under constant assault to either production or distribution and you have a world where one must prepare for the worst, part of that is prepping the mind.  Discussions on this blog of the communist infiltration into all sectors of government is meant to do just that.  These people are not the county clerks and state employees of the 1950s television shows and movies.  They aren't just petty little tyrants with the power to make one knuckle under, they're enemy combatants inside the lines.  Nothing should have made that more apparent than the past year of lockdowns where some unelected "health official" systematically destroyed capitalism and small business in America with the stroke of a pen or the breath of a command.

Under Attack By Spectre — This Is No Drill.  Their scheme has many names;  The New World Order (NWO), Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, The Great Reset.  The cabal is determined to return the planet to medieval serfdom, except without sovereign nations.  They will establish world government, and a universal religion, deciding what you are to believe.  The world population will be kept below 500 million or 'in balance' as the globalists say.  Genetics will be controlled and regulated.  The current population is around 7.9 billion... what to do, what to do.  They will merge digital, physical, and biological systems (gene modification/eugenics injections aka COVID shots), and rely on technological surveillance rather than the rule of law to make people compliant.  Without much thought, over half the population of the United States have agreed to become the first test subjects.  Insurance companies are alarmed that excess deaths are up by 40%, associated with COVID-19 directly or indirectly.  Their goal is simple, the billionaires (gentry) get to keep what they own, everyone else, the commoners/peasants/serfs, surrender their property, and privacy (everyone will be tagged) for the good of the planet, of course.  They insist you will own nothing and be happy.  All accomplished by 2030.  So they say.

America [is] Moving From A Permission Society To A Repressive Regime.  Last month, the Energy Department announced it was taking public comments on efficiency standards for residential air conditioners and pool heaters that are intended to "to help consumers save on their utility bills."  The "savings" angle, though, feels more like cover for the department's deeper agenda, which is its "commitment to reaching net zero carbon emissions."  The Democrats who for now dominate policy making in Washington believe there is nothing so private that they cannot regulate, nothing so personal that it can't be intruded upon.  The only question is the pace of the arrogation of our freedoms.  They have to be taken down in increments, so that the country won't notice the slippery slope toward tyranny.  In many cases, often regarding energy and conservation policies, restrictions are even celebrated by the loudest factions to help numb the public to the constant attacks on liberty.

Biden Wants to Regulate Everything — Even Your Air Conditioning.  President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi want to regulate any gadget or appliance with an electric switch that turns on in your house or your driveway.  New Department of Energy rules will dictate the amount of water that comes out of your showerhead, how much warm air comes out of your heater and how much cool air comes out of air conditioners.  There is even talk about gadgets monitoring your home's temperature in the winter and summer months.  How is any of this the government's business?

Reporters call for White House to 'simply ignore' Supreme Court decisions.  Some reporters are calling on President Biden to ignore Supreme Court decisions that they believe are politically motivated.  On Wednesday, the Supreme Court temporarily reinstated a Trump-era that limits the power of the states to block energy projects that can potentially pollute rivers, streams and other waterways.  In a split 5-4 decision, the justices overturned a lower court judge's order to throw out the rule until the Biden administration can implement a new rule which is expected in spring 2023.

In Vermont, a Raw Attack on Free Speech.  Vermont's social justice legislators have launched a transparent and illegal assault against free speech liberties.  Vermont's Senate has amended the state's assault statute mightily.  S.265 seeks to heighten penalties for threatening with the ["]intent to terrify, intimidate, or unlawfully influence the conduct of a candidate for public office, public servant, election official, or public employee in any decision, opinion, recommendation, vote, or other exercise of discretion taken in capacity as a candidate for public office, public servant, election official, or public employee, or with the intent to retaliate against a candidate for public office, public servant, election official, or public employee for any previous action taken in capacity as a candidate for public office, public servant, election official, or public employee, shall be imprisoned not more than two years or fined not more than $2,000.00, or both.["]  In other words, Vermont seeks to send citizens to jail for threatening political leaders for twice as long as if they physically assaulted them!

The New Authoritarians.  [Scroll down]  During lockdowns and vaccine mandates, tech and pharmaceutical companies made astronomical profits and were aided and abetted at every turn by their pajama-class foot soldiers.  While lockdowns plunged millions of Americans into conditions of unemployment, despair, and hunger, it gave professionals a luxury:  a time to rest at home and be free from stressors like commuting.  As billionaires saw their wealth surge, the upper-middle class stayed silent or complicit. [...] This silencing had serious repercussions.  It is now commonly acknowledged, for example, that school closures were a mistake, but those who spoke up early lost friends, jobs, and opportunities.  What is dismissed as cancel culture is actually central to the authoritarian project.  A new idea ("flatten the curve," "save Grandma," "two weeks to stop the spread") can be introduced at any moment, and if it's framed as morally necessary and unquestionable, it will receive resounding support from the most well-educated class.

Neil Oliver Emphasizes — Once You See the Weaponized Political Corruption, You Cannot Unsee It.  In his weekly monologue, Neil Oliver takes the stories we have outlined on these pages over the past week and weaves them into a comprehensive context.  Once you see the manipulation and lies from government, you can never unsee them.  However, the opposite is also true; once you see the truth, you can never not see it — and that sets up a very specific situation.  Once you know the truth about a series of events or issues, you can easily see the people who pretend not to know it.  I think the reason I like Oliver is because he uses metaphors and analogies in his monologues to connect issues to a picture of what they really mean.  I try to do the same in writing.  Oliver takes the recent information and shows how it is all connected.  From COVID madness to the western govt lies, that drive us toward war with Russia, it's all connected; and we can see it.  [Video clip]

Digital Money and Liberty.  One thing learned from the COVID-19 medical tyranny was there were a couple of libertarians in Congress, but there were no Constitutional conservatives anywhere in Washington, D.C.  Further, the 2020 election highlighted that one of the two major political parties has abandoned classical liberalism in lieu of progressivism.  Progressivism having no limits, progressives have devolved into fascists.  This fascism embraces socialism with government control of nominally private businesses by means of regulations and taxes.  Also, by its nature, progressive fascism is intolerant of political opponents and free speech.

The Real 'Reset' Is Coming.  President Joe Biden believes the Ukraine war will mark the start of a "new world order."  In the middle of the COVID global pandemic, Klaus Schwab and global elites likewise announced a "great reset."  Accordingly, the nations of the world would have to surrender their sovereignty to an international body of experts.  They would enlighten us on taxes, diversity and green policies.  When former President Donald Trump got elected in 2016, marquee journalists announced partisan reporting would have to displace the old, supposedly disinterested approach to the news.  There is a common theme here.  In normal times progressives worry that they do not have public support for their policies.  Only in crises do they feel that the political Left and media can merge to use apocalyptic times to ram through usually unpopular approaches to foreign and domestic problems.

First, They Came For Our Cars ....  If government authorities can shut down an economy and rob Americans of their freedom with lockdowns and mask and vaccine mandates over a virus, then they can, and will, do the same for a crisis, either real or manufactured, in the future.  This was a common warning over the last two years that was of course considered misinformation, disinformation, and just plain nonsense by what has become known as the laptop class. [...] The International Energy Agency has introduced a 10-point plan "to ease strains and price pain" brought on by low oil supply due to the war in Ukraine.  The Paris-based organization that is reliably on the left, as it isn't explicitly right-wing, suggests "Car-free Sundays in cities," "Alternate private car access to roads in large cities," and "reinforcement" of "the adoption of electric and more efficient vehicles."  The IEA also wants lower speed limits, less business travel, and more public transportation.  The plan, says Climate Depot's Marc Morano, "sounds an awful lot like an energy version of COVID lockdowns."

More Than 100 People [in Germany] Have Their Homes Raided by Police After Insulting Politicians Online.  Tuesday [3/22/2022], German officials searched and questioned more than a hundred individuals for hate speech on social media during election campaigns of 2021.  More than 600 statements were analyzed and checked for criminal contents, according to police chief Holger Muench, The Local reported.  "Freedom of expression reaches its limits as soon as it comes to defamation, insults and threats," Muench said.  With Tuesday's action, he said officials are making it clear that "anyone who posts hate speech must expect the police to show up at their door," he said.

We Will Delete You.  Before beating a hasty retreat, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau went where no world leader has gone before.  Last month, he became the first Western leader to wield the financial system as a push-button weapon of government enforcement against opinions and behaviors that he found politically distasteful or inconvenient.  This is an entirely new form of power, which much of the world has not even begun to reckon with — but which may well define our politics in the years to come.  The unification of finance and technology has allowed for new forms of trade, commerce, and business.  The ability to make purchases worldwide, bank from home, do taxes on your couch, and get faster approval for financial instruments like mortgages makes our lives easier.  But all of this comes with a catch:  The same technology that delivers instant banking and worldwide access to things we like also creates the possibility for abuse of power the likes of which we have never seen.

Man Told by an Officer That He Could Enter the Capitol on Jan. 6 Now Faces 20 Years in Prison.  On Jan. 6, 2021, a protestor, 40-year-old Brady Knowlton, says that an officer at the Capitol told "You can go in, as long as you don't break anything."  At 2:35 p.m., Knowlton did, entering through the Upper West Terrace doors.  He looked around inside the building, walked through the Rotunda, lobby, and Senate chamber gallery, obeyed the officer's injunction not to break anything, and left the building at 2:53 p.m.  For that, Knowlton now faces twenty years in prison in Old Joe Biden's vengeful banana republic.

The Three Cs Preventing Total State Control.  If you were a time-traveling supervillain intent on world domination, how might you change the past in order to seize total control of the present?  I'd get rid of the personal automobile, unsupervised cash transactions, and uncontrolled mass communication.  If you take away freedom of movement, freedom of commerce, and freedom of speech, then you can keep people isolated, dependent on government welfare, and ignorant of any ideas that might threaten the power of the State.  Cars, cash, and communication are tools for promoting and protecting freedom, so if your goal is total State control over the individual, the three big Cs must go.  Is it a coincidence, then, that Western governments today seem committed to following that very playbook?

Conformity and 'Community': Fertile Ground for Tyranny.  Many were shocked to witness the Canadian government's brutal suppression of the truckers' protest against vaccine mandates.  Previously, draconian lockdowns oppressed many more Canadians, resulting in the arrest of pastors for holding church services. [...] These days unthinking conformity is on the rise.  In Canada and elsewhere, the Orwellian euphemism often used to promote a type of enforced, top-down conformity is "community."  It really does not denote any real community but rather the mass of people who submit meekly to high-handed authoritarian decrees.  Consequently, they are rewarded with official and social approval.  The rest can be ostracized as selfish misfits and troublemakers.

First, Do Some Harm.  Until now, the people in full control of the minds of our youth have been the army of 31-year-old TikTok-and-Adderall addicts with multiple piercings and furry fetishes and baroque multisyllabic pronouns who seem to work at every preschool and elementary school in the country.  I don't know where these weirdos come from, but I want to thank the China-owned TikTok app for giving them a platform on which to expose themselves. [...] But don't get too comfortable.  A new, even more powerful enemy has entered the game: the pediatric industrial complex.  This battle is going to be more difficult.  Why?  Because if your school is bad, at least you can switch schools or homeschool.  But unless you went to med school and can write prescriptions, stitch a wound, and reset a dislocated shoulder, you can't home-doctor.  Teaching multiplication is one thing, diagnosing pediatric cancer is quite another.

Texas Congressman Warns Of Biden's Illegal Federal Gun Registry.  Representative Michael Cloud (R-TX) is raising awareness on a growing problem within America:  The State's violation of God-given, natural rights to protect life, liberty, and property.  Representative Cloud made a recent appearance on NTD's Capitol Report and shared some alarming news about the encroachment of the federal government to monitor, track, record, and potentially act upon knowledge of gun sales and purchases.  It seems obvious that in the wrong hands, information about gun ownership could quickly turn into a bloody mess.  Would guns be outrageously taxed?  Confiscated?  To what end would they pursue goals of civilian disarmament?

Bedford: We Gave Away Our Freedoms 2 Years Ago, And The GOP Won't Get Them Back.  "It wasn't a virus which is not going to go away; it was the human action, the things we've surrendered," Federalist Senior Editor Christopher Bedford told Tucker Carlson on Fox News.  "And all across the entire Western world, our relationships with our own teachers, our relationships with our politicians, with our media, with our police, with our priests, even with our children and our parents have been fundamentally altered in a way that was largely chosen by our elites.  Forced upon us in a completely hypocritical fashion."  [Video clip]

Whose Democracy Is This, Anyway?  Democrats have been insisting that "our democracy is under attack" ever since Donald Trump's upset election in 2016. [...] It's the official position of the Biden administration that January 6 conclusively proves questioning the election outcome or any other talk that "sow[s] discord or undermine[s] public trust in U.S. government institutions" guarantees more right-wing "[m]ass casualty attacks."  This is their pretext to justify police-state tactics against any political opponent they choose. [...] Neither the Left nor their lapdog media can endure hoi polloi challenging their official narratives.  This is why so many Joe Biden speeches feature scripted outbursts of faux rage that he's "sick of this stuff" and his "patience is wearing thin."  But the Left has worn the people's patience even thinner — by unleashing a hundred official narratives that have, virtually every one, been exposed as cynical hoaxes.  They've picked the wrong time to break ground for their dreamed-of Ministry of Truth.

Does Anyone Recognize This Country Anymore?  The left, especially its progressive wing of radicals that is taking over the Democratic Party, wants America to be just another country, yet one in which a loud, power-hungry, elitist mob, with the support of an army of useful idiots, rules over everyone else.  The current remaking of America differs from the 1960s upheaval in a number of ways.  The most prominent, though, would be today's war on the First Amendment.  The desire to control speech, and eventually thought, has created a dynamic in which Big Tech acts as a government agent to censor speech unapproved by the ruling class.  "A growing number of governments are asserting their authority over tech firms, often forcing the businesses to comply with online censorship and surveillance," reports Freedom House.  "These developments have contributed to an unprecedented assault on free expression online, causing global internet freedom to decline for an 11th consecutive year."

New Rules on Extremism — DHS Will Target Anyone Who Believes Election Was Stolen or Who Challenged Fauci's Everchanging COVID Narrative.  In Joe Biden's first year in office over 2 million illegal aliens from dozens of countries walked into the United States across the southern border.  The numbers this year look even greater.  Joe Biden and DHS Secretary Mayorkas immediately opened up the US southern border after they came into office.  Biden also set another record.  Only 59,011 illegals were deported his first year in office.  This was the lowest number since 1995.

The Real Reason Why Biden Wants to Spend Billions on Pre-K.  During his State of the Union Address, President Biden rebranded the failed Build Back Better bill as his bill that would cut inflation, grow the economy, lower costs, and lower deficits.  Then he added that his plan would include universal — free — "Pre-K for every 3- and 4-year-old."  This is appealing to families struggling with high daycare costs so they can work.  Others wrongly believe that children need to be in formal school as early as possible.  Few Americans realize that government control over the rearing and education of young children is a key communist goal for turning our nation toward totalitarianism.

If You Thought The COVID Thought Police Were Bad, You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet.  The COVID pandemic unleashed Big Tech censors in a big way.  Day after day, a handful of 20-something Silicon Valley leftists tweaked their algorithms to block, demonetize, and de-platform anyone who dared say anything that wasn't in sync with government talking points, on the grounds that such "misinformation" posed a serious threat to public health. [...] Already, Big Tech is sharpening its algorithms to go after the next target — imposing speech codes regarding "climate science."  A new report from a United Nations global warming "working group" complains that "misinformation" spread on social media poses a dire threat to humans because it's contributing to "delayed action."  "Rhetoric and misinformation on climate change and the deliberate undermining of science have contributed to misperceptions of the scientific consensus, uncertainty, disregarded risk and urgency, and dissent," the report says, and "has sowed uncertainty, and impeded recognition of risk."

In Wisconsin, a fight over whether children belong to the state or the parents.  In 1991, the European release of Zero Wing, a Sega video game, contained a now-classic badly translated phrase:  "All your base are belong to us."  In the massive battle shaping up across America, public school districts are metaphorically carrying a banner saying "All your children are belong to us" in their battle against parents over children's gender (not to mention racial issues).  What's happening in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, exemplifies this battle and can be summed up in a sentence from a staff training session:  "[P]arents are not entitled to know their kids' [gender] identities.  That knowledge must be earned."  That arrogant message came from a "professional development facilitator guide" that was used in the school district at a staff development session: [...]

Researchers Working On Algorithm To Diagnose You With Mental Illness Based On Internet Posts.  Researchers at liberal Dartmouth College have created an artificial intelligence model that identifies mental illnesses based on Reddit discussions, the college announced.  Critics of the AI modelling claim its another step on the path to introducing a social credit score, like China, in which citizens are controlled.  Others claim the AI model will pave the way for citizens and internet users to be imprisoned in "cyber Gulags" for daring to disagree with mainstream media narratives.

Google, Apple cut off access to ordinary Russians, meaning they can do the same to Americans at any time.  In another ominous sign that the big tech behemoths have way too much power and control over the lives of ordinary people, Apple and Google have now cut off Russians from their payment platforms, which is already causing mayhem in their country.  As noted by Irish journalist Jason Corcoran in a tweeted image, commuters at Moscow's Metro Station had difficulty paying for their ride after they discovered the platforms no longer functioned.  "Apple Pay and Google Pay no longer work on Moscow's metro system, leading to long queues as people fumble about for cash," tweeted Corcoran.

Surgeon General Asks Social Media Companies for Target List of COVID Skeptics and Influencers.  Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, Vice Admiral, U.S. Public Health Service Surgeon General of the United States, is married to a woman named Dr. Alice Tu Chen.  If you look into the past of the surgeon general's wife, you will discover Alice Chen is essentially a ghost — from the perspective of: who were her parents, where is her family?  The lack of early childhood, parental and familial history is a key characteristic of CCP plants in the U.S.  When the U.S. Dept of Justice recently announced they were dropping the Chinese spy initiative, a program to review how CCP officials had been working for years to seed the U.S. with Chinese operatives, indications are the DOJ motive was connected to serious internal discoveries surrounding the wife of the U.S. Surgeon General, Alice Chen.  I do not say this lightly.  Unfortunately, a tangential outcome from eliminating the FBI "China Initiative', is recognizing we now have a completely compromised U.S. Surgeon General who is a controlled mechanism for the Fourth Branch of Government to leverage.

Rebellion To Tyrants Is Obedience To God.  As repugnant as Western governments' responses have been to COVID, traditional friends of freedom have been equally disheartening.  Civil rights groups have remained silent while the Bill of Rights is trampled, or worse, they have encouraged the government's abusive tyranny as in the best interests of the "common good."  Journalists have continued to prove their worthlessness in keeping government institutions in check by refusing to question, let alone investigate, the "facts" health agencies assert or the effectiveness of blunt force government-imposed "solutions."  The Globe and Mail has gone so far as to demonize the "ugly side of freedom" embraced by those who simply want the State to leave them alone.  And perhaps most disappointing of all, church leaders have, with few exceptions, abandoned their flocks by submitting to lockdowns and other unconstitutional bars against religious gatherings in the misguided belief that civil authorities must be unquestionably obeyed.

Things Are Getting Worse, Not Better.  Easily distracted by wall-to-wall news coverage of the latest crisis and conveniently diverted by news cycles that change every few days, Americans remain oblivious to the many governmental abuses that are still wreaking havoc on our freedoms: police shootings of unarmed individuals, invasive surveillance, roadside blood draws, roadside strip searches, SWAT team raids gone awry, the military industrial complex's costly wars, pork barrel spending, pre-crime laws, civil asset forfeiture, fusion centers, militarization, armed drones, smart policing carried out by AI robots, courts that march in lockstep with the police state, schools that function as indoctrination centers, and bureaucrats that keep the Deep State in power.  These are dangerous times for America and the world.

Walling Off Washington From the Great Unwashed.  Recently, after meeting with congressional Democrats, the United States Capitol Police initiated "extra security" precautions for Tuesday's State of the Union address.  The USCP is coordinating with the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police, the United States Park Police, the Secret Service and the National Guard.  Included in their preparations is the construction of a 7-foot fence around the Capitol building and the deployment of 50 tactical military vehicles.  The purported need for all this security involves "The People's Convoy," a procession of truckers crossing the country to protest the ongoing use of COVID-19 as a pretext for restricting American civil liberties.  Never mind that the convoy's press release says it won't arrive in the Beltway area until days after the SOTU is delivered, and that it won't enter the District of Columbia, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is monitoring the situation "very closely."

GOP Senators Object To Proposal To Label Mask Objectors 'Terrorists'.  More than half a dozen Republican senators penned a letter last week demanding the Department of Justice (DOJ) reject a request to stamp those who protest airplane mask mandates as "terrorists."  Earlier this month, Delta Air Lines' CEO Ed Bastian asked the DOJ to add travelers convicted of "unruly" conduct to a new "no-fly" list barring access to commercial air transport.  Such conduct warranting the same expulsion granted to suspected terrorists include those who've resisted compliance with mask requirements, which made up nearly three-quarters of airplane disputes last year, according to data from the Federal Aviation Administration published by CNBC.  "Like other airlines, Delta maintains its own no-fly list for anyone who disrupts onboard safety or refuses to comply with crew instructions," Bastian wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Tuesday doubling down on his request.

Saying You're 'Colorblind' About Race Is Now Considered Racist By The Federal Government.  A race-based training program used by federal agencies claims, among other things, that saying one is "colorblind" to race is itself racist.  The training is part of a newly revealed federal diversity program that greatly expands on previously critical race theory trainings within the federal government, the Washington Examiner reported.  Part of the expansion comes in the form of opposing "microaggressions," or words and actions by one person that unintentionally upset another.  As the Examiner noted, training provided to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau says that offering a black student a basketball is considered offensive.  "Not only are federal workers urged to consider what they say, but also how their comments are received.  In one chart, a white male is shown saying he is 'colorblind.'  The black woman shown beside, however, takes as an insult that the white is denying her 'racial/cultural being,'" the Examiner reported.  "And, it advised men, don't interrupt a woman speaking because they hear, 'Women's ideas are not valued.'"

The State's Monopoly on Violence.  [Scroll down]  I live in downtown Toronto and everywhere I go I see police cars blocking of intersections, impeding or actually stopping traffic.  There are so many of them that even the vehicles of parking constables and court agents have been commandeered into use.  They haven't recruited the dog catchers yet — at least not in Toronto but in Ottawa they have indeed started impounding the truckers' pets under the pretense that the truckers are unable to take care of them.  There is no truckers convoy here in Toronto.  For some months now there have been entirely peaceful marches, first protesting vaccine mandates and then demanding freedom in general, that have ended up in front of the provincial legislature.  These police cars are a warning:  don't start up because if you do, we are ready for you with the entire force of the state.  What they say is that the state has a monopoly on violence and will do everything it can to preserve it.

Cops, convoys, conservatives, and tyranny.  [Scroll down]  The behavior of the Canadian cops against the truckers and their supporters is shameful and alarming.  And I fear that we'll see the same thing in the U.S.  We've already seen examples of it, like parents being manhandled and branded as domestic terrorists for daring to criticize school boards.  What's all the more shameful and alarming, not to mention ironic, is that the ordinary citizens being targeted by police are the very people who supported the police when they were being ambushed and murdered and police stations were being burned; [...] If a law were to pass tomorrow making it illegal to be left-handed, I fear that SWAT teams would be knocking down doors and dragging out anyone suspected of being, or harboring, a southpaw.  Tyranny is difficult to impose without heavy-handed enforcement.  What we've seen in Canada, and what I fear we'll see even more of in the U.S., causes one to no longer wonder where a tyrannical regime manages to find its Gestapo, its Stasi, its jackbooted thugs; they're already in place, uniformed, armed and well-regimented.

Canada Isn't Alone in Using Debanking As a Weapon Against Political Opponents.  Canada may be the future for many Americans.  The Canadian government is freezing the bank accounts of truckers involved in the freedom protest.  But on Thursday, they went even further, freezing the bank accounts and blocking credit cards and crypto wallets for people and institutions in Canada who donated to support the truckers.  Without credit cards or checks and no access to financial institutions, people better hope that they have lots of cash at home.  This is being done even without court orders.  It is bad enough that financial institutions freeze donors' accounts.  Still, to get an idea of how extreme this is, they are punishing people who donated to the truckers even before the Trudeau government condemned the truckers' actions.  But this isn't just something that happens in our neighbor Canada.  Indeed, Biden is using all the regulatory tools at his disposal to "debank" those industries he doesn't like.

America Has Two Major Political Parties:  The Republicans And The Authoritarians.  Yearning to breathe free has become an offense in Canada punishable by arrest.  The extreme measures taken by boy Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in breaking up the truckers' protest should appall every person in this country.  But one group of Americans overwhelmingly approves of Trudeau's jackbooted crackdown.  In another time they'd be called the agents of tyranny, but for now they're still known as Democrats.  Rather than sitting down with the truckers demonstrating in Ottawa to civilly discuss their grievances and seek a peaceful end to their takeover of the capital's downtown, Trudeau instead launched "an unprecedented violation of civil rights."  A "giant security force" was "amassed to quell the demonstration," writes Canadian Laura Koot, managing editor of The National, which covers the Middle East.  She went "from feeling great pride for my home country to being filled with shame and horror" in the course of a week.

France Deactivates 4 Million Vaccine Passports.  This past week, the French Government began deactivating the vaccine passports of nearly four million double-vaxxed citizens because they still have not taken the booster, according to France News 24.  Individuals who have had their passes taken away will effectively be relegated to unvaxxed status and no longer be able to engage in most aspects of society.  Although some are willing to take the booster, most were caught completely off guard when they checked their app and found their privileges had been revoked.

Tyranny: Canadian Parliament Votes for Emergencies Act Motion.  The Canadian Parliament voted Monday night to approve Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's motion to invoke the Emergencies Act by a vote of 185 for and 151 against.  Trudeau invoked the Act, an unprecedented move, last week claiming it necessary to dispel peaceful protests linked to the Freedom Convoy movement, which is demanding an end to civil rights violations by the Trudeau government allegedly necessary to fight the Chinese coronavirus.  At press time on Monday, no active Freedom Convoy protests exist anywhere in Canada.  The motion to uphold the invocation of emergency powers by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau passed in a vote in the Canadian House of Commons on Monday, with the Liberal Party and the NDP and other allies garnering 181 votes for the motion.

The Permanent Emergency.  In Ottawa, the Totalitarian Mammy-Singer continues his trashing of Canadian norms and institutions.  During Friday afternoon's Clubland Q&A, we heard that our colleague and sometime guest-host Andrew Lawton had been pepper-sprayed by the shameful Ottawa coppers.  He had to go to emergency, and was eventually discharged from hospital just before dawn on Saturday.  Andrew being Andrew, he got straight back to work reporting what was happening on the streets around Parliament — and promptly caught a second hit from the peelers.  He is now boasting that he has strong "natural immunity" to pepper.  It isn't really funny, though, is it?  As officers of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police put it in a leaked "group chat", "Time for the protestors to hear our jackboots on the ground."  These and other remarks by constables purporting to enjoy the equine trampling of an elderly woman are now being "investigated" by the RCMP.  But there doesn't really seem to be a lot to "investigate", does there?  Police brutality is out in the open — because two percent of those who see it are outraged, and everyone else just gets the message and figures, "Whoa, better keep my head down till the storm passes..."  It won't.

Canadian Communists and Socialists Unite to Declare Support for Emergency War Declaration Against Canadian Citizens, Parliament Approves Emergency Act 185 to 151.  The Communists (NDP) and the Socialists (LPC) united in the Canadian House of Parliament today [2/21/2022] to vote their support for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's deployment of the Emergency War Measures Act.  The vote was 185 in support and 151 against, as the Canadian government now officially declares war against citizens who protested against government.  The parliamentary support of the Emergency War Measures Act now gives the government the authority to hunt down their political opposition, arrest any dissident member who may have petitioned their government with grievances against the covid mandates, and begin seizing the financial assets of anyone who might still challenge the government mandates of Justin Trudeau.

Canadian Parliament Votes to Extend Emergencies Act for 30 Days.  The Canadian House of Commons voted Monday night to approve a 30-day extension of the Emergencies Act, which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently invoked for the first time since its passage in 1988 to quash the trucker blockade in Ottawa protesting the cross-border vaccine mandate.  After hours of debate, the vote on the "motion for confirmation of the declaration of emergency" passed along partisan lines, with 185 members voting "yay" and 151 members voting "nay."  The vast majority of Liberal and New Democratic Leader party members voted to extend the law, and the vast majority of Conservatives and the Bloc Québécois voted to suspend it.

The Fall of Canada, The Danger in the US: Understanding Martial Law.  [Scroll down]  Parliamentarians in Canada do not seem to understand that now their former colleague, Justin Trudeau, can arrest not just truckers, whose lawful protest has been declared illegal, but also the Parliamentarians themselves.  This is, sadly, the next step in this kind of drama, historically.  It is an extraordinarily dangerous sign that Parliament is not seated.  When the Australian Parliament was suspended, by the time they reconvened, their powers had been dramatically curtailed.  Tyrants seek to normalize the convening of Parliaments as "optional" or to suspend normal Parliamentary processes long enough to hollow out a legislative body's deliberative powers, and to ensure that when and if a Parliament (or a Congress, for that matter) meets again, it will be merely a ceremonial assembly.  Parliamentarians in Canada also do not seem to understand that "dictator" is no longer rhetorical.  A member of Parliament was shushed when he cried out this epithet, but the fact is that this is not a slur at this point.  Justin Trudeau is by definition now in fact a dictator.

Is Canada Becoming Cuba?  Last week, for only the second time in Canadian history other than wartime — the first time was under Justin Trudeau's father, Pierre Trudeau, the other Marxist to govern Canada — Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act.  This statute enables a Canadian prime minister to suspend fundamental human rights and rule as a dictator.  The CBC described in detail how Trudeau is using the Emergencies Act to destroy the lives of Canadian dissidents.  This should be read carefully.  Such policies have never been enacted by a Western country against its own citizens (with the extremely rare exceptions of those actively engaged in terrorism):  "Using powers granted under the Emergencies Act, the federal government has directed banks and other financial institutions to stop doing business with people associated with the anti-vaccine mandate convoy occupying the nation's capital.  The government's new directive, called the 'emergency economic measures order,' goes beyond asking banks to simply stop transferring funds to protest organizers.  The government wants banks to stop doing business with some people altogether.["]

Poll: Majority Of Democrats Back Trudeau's Crackdown, Freezing Bank Accounts Of Truckers.  A majority of likely Democratic voters support Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's use of emergency powers to crack down on Freedom Convoy protesters last week.  A new poll from Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action and provided exclusively to The Daily Wire shows that 55% of likely general election voters disapprove of Trudeau's handling of the protesters.  Thirty-five percent approve of Trudeau's heavy-handed tactics and 10% said they were unaware of what was happening north of the U.S. border.  Trafalgar Group surveyed 1080 likely general election voters from February 18-20 after Trudeau brought federal, provincial, and local law enforcement into Ottawa to forcibly clear out hundreds of protesters and dozens of vehicles from Parliament Hill and surrounding areas.  The poll's margin of error is 3%.

The Democrats Are Turning America into the New Venezuela.  The Bill of Rights is very clear and does not have any stipulations pertaining to the Second Amendment.  There are no conditions attached to the Second Amendment, such as the type of firearm, number of bullets in the magazine, caliber size, manufacturer, or how many firearms you can have on you or in your home.  The Second Amendment clearly states that the citizens of the United States have the right to keep and bear arms.  It's that simple.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.  The Democrats use every opportunity, no matter how minuscule the connection might be, to oppose the right to keep and bear arms for law-abiding citizens. [...] All dictatorships start this way: take control away from the people, make them defenseless, own them.  It's modern-day slavery.  It's not slavery as in a private master and slave.  It's the state owning its people.  Gun control is people control and the taxpayers pay for it.  This is the truth and it's up to you what you do with it but demand your God-given right to keep and bear arms and to freedom of speech.

Requiem for a Nation.  It may seem hard to believe that America's neighbor to the north is now a full-fledged, up-and-running police state.  Heavily-armed police are arresting and, in some cases, roughing up, severely beating, and trampling with horses members of the truckers' Freedom Convoy in Ottawa as well as bystanders.  The country has gone off the rails.  Justin Trudeau's ineffable Justice Minister David Lametti is on record threatening those who hold the wrong political views that they are liable to have their bank accounts seized.  "If you are a member of a pro-Trump movement who is donating hundreds of thousands of dollars, and millions of dollars to this kind of thing," he said, "then you ought to be worried."  The assumption that Trump has something to do with Canadian trucker donations seems particularly unhinged.  Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, who sits on the board of Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum — an obvious conflict of interest — has moved to freeze the bank accounts and other financial instruments of the "protesters" and private citizens who have donated to the trucker fund.

UN Planes In Ontario, North Bay - Shocked Canadians Believe They Carry The "Green Shirt" Officers In Ottawa.  Who would have thought that Canada would ever be a spark plug for a freedom movement against tyranny?  Everything started when Ottawa's police chief was ousted amid criticism of his inaction against the trucker protests that have paralyzed Canada's capital for over two weeks, while the number of blockades maintained by demonstrators at the U.S. border dropped to just one.  The twin developments came a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked Canada's Emergencies Act and threatened to take tough legal and financial measures to end the unrest in Ottawa and beyond by protesters decrying the country's COVID-19 restrictions and Trudeau's government.  Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly lost his job after failing to move decisively against the bumper-to-bumper demonstration by hundreds of truck drivers according to the mainstream media.  Local sources alleged that he just didn't want to follow orders that would require stomping on Canada's democracy!

NWO goons
The Reason for the Police Violence in Ottawa is Not What You Think.  The black clad army of mercenaries and police brutalizing a peaceful protest in Ottawa this weekend has been planned for years.  It is overkill for a reason.  It is theatre.  It is an othering, a willful flagrant statement on the future of the working class everywhere.  It instructs them:  you will die.  If not now, then sometime in the next ten years.  Your towns will be gutted, your jobs will evaporate, you will scramble for pennies until you fall over dead and your children will have nothing to look forward to.  You are Tutsi, you are Jew, you are Kulak, you are compromador, you are Othered.  You are headed for the slagheap of history.  Fight back and you will be deemed domestic terrorists and encamped indefinitely.  This week, Canada's intelligentsia unmasked themselves as fully on side of this demonic enterprise, competing to hate on the truckers.


A Social Credit System Arrives in Canada.  For the past three weeks, thousands of truckers have gathered in Ottawa and along the Canada-America border in protest of Covid restrictions and mandates.  Rather than engage with them or listen to their concerns, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau first denounced them as having "unacceptable views."  Then he demonized them as white supremacists, racists, and "swastika wavers."  On Monday, the rhetoric turned to action when Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act.  This heretofore-unused 1988 law gives the government virtually unlimited power for 30 days to deal with a crisis.  Invoking the law under the present circumstance would require the threat or use of "serious violence," yet the vast majority of protesters have been entirely peaceful — playing "We Are the World" and waving Maple Leaf flags.  Indeed, the government has made little attempt to justify the need for emergency powers beyond Trudeau's frequent bemoaning of the truckers' alleged "hateful rhetoric."  His public safety minister Marco Mendocino stated that such extraordinary measures were necessary due to "intimidation, harassment, and expressions of hate."  Perhaps he doesn't realize that none of these are listed in the law as valid reasons to invoke it.  Trudeau escalated things further on Tuesday night, when he issued a new directive called the Emergency Economic Measures Order.

Canadian MP says single mom on minimum wage has had her bank account frozen for donating $50 to Freedom Convoy.  A Canadian MP says the bank account of a single mom with a minimum wage job has been frozen after she donated $50 to Freedom Convoy.  Conservative lawmaker Mark Strahl says the mom, named only as Briane, has had her life ruined for donating the small sum to the anti-vaccine mandates protest.  Strahl shared Brianne's story as concerns grow that scores of ordinary people will no longer be able to pay for food and basics after their accounts were frozen for donating to a group of protesters.

The Left Goes Full Orwell.  "Freedom," warned the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which is funded by the Trudeau government, is a word that has "become common among far-right groups."  To prove its point, the CBC quoted Elisabeth Anker, a George Washington University prof, who claimed that freedom is a "slippery concept" and that those on the right want "violent" freedoms that reject being "bound by norms of equality" or "norms to remedy inequality." [...] In George Orwell's 1984, the Ministry of Truth is decorated with party slogans that include, "Freedom is Slavery" and "Ignorance is Strength." The organization was based on the actual British Ministry of Information which Orwell had a great deal of experience with while working for the wartime BBC even while his wife worked for the Ministry's censorship division.  Orwell would not have been in the least surprised by state media trotting out an academic who regularly appears on state media (including that of totalitarian nations such as Qatar) to explain that freedom is really a very naughty thing even as the state crushes a "Freedom Convoy" using emergency powers that were meant to deal with wartime emergencies, not peaceful protests.  But "Freedom is Slavery" propaganda has become extremely ubiquitous on the Left.

MSNBC Reporter Admits Democratic Base Doesn't Want to Go Back to 'Normal'.  This is really a remarkable admission from MSNBC reporter Alex Seitz-Wald, who gave a grim assessment of the Democrats' challenge in lifting COVID-19 restrictions across the board and returning the United States to some sense of "normal."  A recent poll showed a whopping 65% of Democrats who believe it "too early to rescind mask mandates" as opposed to just 20% of Republicans who think that way.  How does that mesh with Democratic governors who are in the process of lifting mask mandates in their states?

With media targeting truckers' donors, say goodbye to anonymous free speech.  In Canada, first the doxing, then the struggle session.  This week, one of the most popular small-donor fundraising sites for the Canadian truckers protesting the COVID vaccine mandates, GiveSendGo, was hacked.  The names of donors were shared with the public.  We know about this mostly because erstwhile news organizations, such as Reuters, have showered attention on the breach as if they were providing a public service.  Indeed, many of the same outlets that refused to report specifics about the Hunter Biden email scoop in 2020 (though the story was obtained in a completely ethical journalistic manner) or share specifics from the Democratic National Committee email hacks in 2016 (illegally obtained, but with high news value) have no compunction highlighting a site that takes aim at ordinary people who have done nothing but engage in political dissent.

The Power of the Powerless Is Real.  The growing tyranny in the West has not happened overnight.  It did not suddenly arrive at our doorsteps with the Chinese Flu.  It has been a nightmare decades in the making.  The difference today is that previously slumbering citizens once sublimely content in the normal humdrum of their lives are waking up to realize that the enemies from our past have returned with a vengeance.  Free speech is treated as dangerous.  Western governments, corporations, and social media platforms engage in rampant censorship.  Race and sexual identity are used as the defining attributes of a person to the exclusion of talent, character, and achievement.  Teachers' unions openly demand the right to indoctrinate children according to the interests of the State.  Parents are threatened for believing that their children belong to them.  The criminal justice system is used as a place to punish political opponents and to protect political friends.  Religious expression is outlawed.  Leftists' "secularized religion" is imposed.  Freedom is disparaged as "right-wing."  Coercion has replaced consent.  Victimhood has replaced virtue.  Conformity has replaced individuality.  "Correct" thinking has replaced freethinking.  "Social justice" has replaced real justice.  And the protection of government has become more important than the protection of human rights.

The Democracy Disconnect in Canada Highlights a Big Mistake Conservatives Make.  Somewhere there is a radical called Saul Alinsky, the trainer of modern revolutionary communists and political leftists — who dedicated his training manual to Lucifer, smiling as he watches the results of his teachings.  Unfortunately, we have not yet seen the worst of what is to come from this.  Allow me to highlight the point with two easily referenced examples from Canadian media (infiltrated with ideological stenographers) and contemplate the larger message against government saying we must "defend our democracy" while removing political protest.  Notice the evolution of the collective narrative in just a few days.  The word "freedom" is extremist (Feb 13) ... Conservatives are "extremist" (Feb 18)  [Tweets]  When "freedom and liberty" are defined as extremism, conservatives become defined as extremists.  See how that works?  Yes, linguistic judo and ideological training provided by Saul Alinsky, in his rules for radicals.  In essence, Alinsky taught the budding communists to define the opposition, isolate them, ridicule them and marginalize them.

The Message to Canadian Truckdrivers from Archbishop Vigano is Even More Important Today.  "If we do not limit ourselves to consider what happened in individual nations, but broaden our gaze to what has happened everywhere, your protest, dear Canadian truck-driver friends, joins a worldwide chorus that wants to oppose the establishment of the new world order on the rubble of nation states, through the Great Reset, designed by the World Economic Forum and by the United Nations under the name of Agenda 2030.  And we know that many heads of government have participated in Klaus Schwab's School for Young Leaders, the so-called Global Leaders for Tomorrow."  [Video clip]

Ottawa Police Chief "It is now unlawful to protest against government, 100 checkpoints have been established".  The interim police chief of Ottawa, Comrade Steve Bell, made it clear today that he and the residents of Ottawa are "sick" of the protesters.  Therefore, effective immediately, no Canadian citizen will be permitted to access, enter or walk lawfully in the downtown Ottawa area.  "100 police checkpoints have been established" Bell said, and citizens are being questioned about the reason for their travel.  Additionally, within his current authority as the regional guard for government, he has been authorized to offer "safe passage" out of the area for any current protestor or dissident supporter.  However, if people do not exit the area within this current window of amnesty, the safety of the remaining citizens cannot be guaranteed as heavily armed tactical operations begin.

Police in Ottawa make mass arrests, beat protesters as Trudeau's crackdown continues.  In the wake of the Trudeau administration invoking emergency powers that allow the police to act outside of their normal scope, authorities are moving in on downtown Ottawa on Friday, making arrests and, in some cases, being physically violent with protestors.  Ottawa police have reported that at least 70 people have been arrested thus far.  In the video, police can be seen treating a protestor brutally.  At one point, an officer rams his knee into the man's torso repeatedly, causing him to collapse eventually.  [Video clip]

Justin Trudeau:  Fidel Castro's Son.  The rumors have been circulating for years:  it's easy to find side-by-side photographic comparisons of Fidel Castro and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, showing the strong physical resemblance between the two.  This rattles the establishment media to the extent that they "debunk" it regularly.  Last Saturday, the New York Times ran a piece entitled:  "An old falsehood resurfaces:  that Justin Trudeau is Fidel Castro's son."  On Tuesday, the Daily Beast chimed in with "Truckers Resurrect Bananas Theory About Trudeau's Real Dad."  True to form for the establishment media, neither addressed the points journalist Karen Leibowitcz made in favor of the claim in 2020, but while the question is interesting, what is far more important is that whatever the true story of his parentage may be, in bringing authoritarian rule to Canada, Justin Trudeau has now shown himself to be the ideological son of Fidel Castro.  No one should be surprised by this.  Trudeau has a long record of affinity for authoritarian governments.

Have At 'Em, Antifa!  The New Free Speech.  [Scroll down]  have long maintained that the left never truly cared about free speech.  They merely pretended to in order to protect the people they actually supported:  communists and pornographers.  That was the sort of "speech" that used to get banned.  But today, the speech that gets banned includes statements like:  There are only two genders; Maybe we shouldn't defund the police; Affirmative action is unjust; Masks don't work — No they work!  No, they don't work! Also, apparently, speech asserting that mass immigration has not been an unalloyed good for our country, contributing to our prosperity, cohesiveness and happiness.  One of Justice William Brennan's hallowed quotes is:  "[T]he government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable."  Those stirring words were in defense of flag-burning.  And here's a famous one from Justice William O. Douglas:  "Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.  It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us."  That was about communists.  But ever since conservative speech became the target of censors, liberals adore governmental suppression of speech.

If We Had a Real President, Here's How He (or She) Would React to Trudeau's War on Canadians' Freedom.  [Scroll down]  This fictional president would remind Trudeau that the entire Anglo-American political tradition going back to the Magna Carta in 1215 has been a trajectory of the recognition of the rights of the individual, as well as limitations on the powers of government as a guard against tyrannical rulers making questionable use of vaguely worded laws in order to crush their opponents and preserve themselves in power.  He would scold the Canadian for trampling upon that tradition, and quote some ringing words from Ronald Reagan or Alexander Solzhenitsyn about how tyranny crushes the human spirit and must be resisted.  Then the real president would get down to business.  He would issue a warning:  if Trudeau seizes the truckers' bank accounts, Canadian assets in the United States will likewise be frozen until the Canadian government returns the funds to the truckers.

Trudeau Officially Enacts Autocratic 'Emergency Powers,' Gives Surreal Press Conference.  As RedState reported earlier, Justin Trudeau announced on Monday plans to enact so-called "emergency powers" under Canada's Emergency Act to target the Freedom Convoy.  For their part, the truckers have pledged to "hold the line" in the face of government aggression.  Now, Trudeau has officially followed through, giving an insane press conference detailing the measures that are going to be used.  [Tweets] [...] It's not an overstatement to call this move communistic and Orwellian.  I'm confident in saying that if this were a non-Western country, there'd be an international outcry and calls for sanctions.  Think about it.  Canada is literally labeling peaceful protesters as terrorists and enacting emergency powers to smash dissent via imprisonment.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Expected to Invoke Emergency War Measures Act to Break up Freedom Protests.  Rather than remove any of the Canadian government restrictions and rules surrounding COVID-19 mandates, media are reporting that at 4:30pm today Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will instead invoke the Emergency Act, formerly the War Measures Act, to take emergency action to quell the 'Freedom Protests' taking place in Canada.  This is a rather remarkable development highlighting the severity of the totalitarian mindset behind the governing Liberal party in Canada.  The current Emergency Act has never before been used.

Newton, the Third Law of Motion, and Canadian Truckers.  Governments in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia have been three of the worst offenders when it comes to attacking citizens' basic liberties.  To be sure, while most countries in the world have experienced varied degrees of restrictions, Canada has created one of the more potent cocktails of lockdowns, mask requirements, social distancing requirements, vaccine mandates, vaccine passport mandates, travel restrictions, contact tracing, quarantining, surveillance and policing.  Canada, notoriously has become one of the first to take steps towards building COVID camps.  The Canadian government announced last summer that it was funding the construction of four "isolation sites" where "people who have COVID-19 — or have been exposed to it — access safe isolation accommodations to keep themselves and their community safe."  Translation:  The government is building camps where people who test positive can be coerced into "voluntarily" leaving their own homes and placed in sites under lock-and-key until they check after being deemed by the government no longer a threat to public health and safety.

Trudeau Channels His Inner Daddy, Fidel Castro.  Last week, two memes started in response to Justin Trudeau's authoritarianism.  Let's Go Brandeau! is a thing now.  It's a brilliant frozen-north variation of Let's Go Brandon.  The second was the tongue-in-cheek claim that Justin Trudeau is the illegitimate love-child of Fidel Castro.  AP and The New York Times refuted this claim.  I don't know which is funnier, the meme or the fact-checking clowns at AP and NYT.  In any event, on Monday, Trudeau channeled his inner Castro and invoked emergency powers.  He's shutting down protests that don't align with his autocratic, authoritarian mandates.

Canada and the tyranny of emergencies.  Monday [2/14/2022], Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared a "state of emergency" against his own citizens in what has become the latest fashionable trend to crush dissent and demand obedience to the state. [...] Such a declaration sets a dangerous precedent, whereby Charter Rights, the Canadian version of the U.S.'s Bill of Rights, can now be sidestepped at the whim of a single individual.  Is there any historical proposition more dangerous than a powerful apparatchik revoking your rights under the pretense of necessity?

Canadian State Media Declare Freedom is Racist.  The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), a media entity funded by the Canadian government, announces today that "freedom" is a word used by extremist "far-right" groups.  These are the same labeled groups the Canadian government has called racist and worse.  Yes, the official position from the Canadian state media is that freedom is racist.

Maryland Legislature Considers Creating 'Advisory Council' to Collect Data on Homeschoolers.  If we have learned anything about left-wing cultural revolutionaries over the past few years and decades, it's that they insist that all conform to their view of "diversity."  All are welcome, except for those who disagree.  That's why it's so troubling to see government authorities rope in, and attempt to control, people attempting to maintain their independence.  Maryland Delegate Sheila Ruth, a Baltimore County Democrat, recently proposed legislation in the Maryland House of Delegates that would create a deeply worrisome "advisory council" to watch over and gather data on homeschool families.  The 16-seat council would be staffed by four political appointees, four government officials, and eight members of the homeschool community.  It would "gather information on the needs of homeschool parents and homeschool umbrella schools," and would effectively sweep homeschool parents under the wing of a government agency.

Our Greatest Domestic Threat:  Pro-Government Extremists.  Though alarming and depressing, we can no longer avoid recognizing that America's greatest domestic threat is from pro-government extremists.  We rue that pro-government extremists caused immense destruction during their less-than-"peaceful protests" in 2020; and we witness the continuing damage caused by their neurotic, totalitarian response to a plethora of problems, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.  Indeed, what makes the pro-government extremists so dangerous is their far greater numbers than their anti-government extremist counterparts.  Their noxious ideology that the citizen is subordinate to the omnipotent state is incessantly "normalized" and propagandized by their corporate media comrades.  Worse, their pro-government extremism is being indoctrinated throughout American public and private institutions, including K-12 education, higher education, and the military.

The soft, sweet voices of tyranny.  In 2020, after George Floyd's drug usage saw him die while in police custody, the trend I noticed was that women, especially White leftist women, were at the leading edge of hysterical craziness when it came to matters of race.  Now, in 2022, it's occurred to me that women are also at the leading edge of something else:  They're the soft, sweet voices of despotic policing.  The first time I saw it, although I didn't note it very strongly, was in April 2021, when Pastor Pawlowski, in Canada, kicked out the police who were trying to shut down his Passover service before Easter.  As you can see, while the male police officers are hanging back, they've put a woman in front to let Pastor Padlowski know that the police are going to get him:  [Video clip]  We saw it again when customers in Corduroy Restaurant, a Vancouver restaurant, kicked out health inspectors. [...] I know that there are other, similar, videos out there.  My point is that this is tyranny with a smile, a soft, feminine smile.

New Homeland Security Terrorism Bulletin Targets Freedom of Speech in America.  [W]ith rare exceptions (think George Washington declining to seek a third term as President), the tendency of those in power is always to seek as much of it as possible, especially when it's combined with the ever-present totalitarian temptation of the Left.  A generation later, James Madison warned that greater dangers to liberty are found in the quiet and gradual expanse of government power:  "There are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."  The response of the federal and many state governments to the COVID-19 pandemic illustrates this reality in multiple ways.  President Joe Biden cannot let go of mask mandates supported by scant scientific evidence, and his administration continues urging Big Tech to silence anybody on social media who says anything remotely critical of the CDC.  This has produced a situation in which the national Democratic leadership has succumbed to temptation and indeed has become addicted.

Canada is slipping further down the slope to tyranny.  On last night's [2/11/2022] episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra discussed Canada's authoritarian ways as of late, and how the country is currently at a point of slipping even further down the slope toward all-out tyranny.  Here's one recent example:  A police officer, with a uniform and a badge and a gun, going unannounced and unprompted to a private citizen's house to "talk to them" about a peaceful protest they were going to attend. [...] So the police are going door to door surprising people by letting them know they're being spied on.  That's what that was.

Trudeau is getting dangerous but the truckers still have options.  Tucker Carlson had a somewhat ebullient segment about the fact that the Canadian truckers represent the rise of the ordinary people, while the response from Canada's leadership class bespeaks fear and helplessness.  I'm sorry to say that I believe Tucker is wrong and that things are getting very dangerous for the truckers.  They still have options but, whenever you have to depend on the goodwill of a tyrant, his police state, and his military, things aren't going well.  That's especially true of Canada because, on May 1, 2020, Canadians gave up their guns.

Americans who question government now 'threat actors,' DHS Says.  A new federal terror advisory contains a threat assessment that characterizes Americans who "mislead" others into questioning government-approved messages as being on par with terrorists.  That is as anti-American messaging as could be imagined.  America was founded on questioning governments, foreign and domestic.  And that has been her saving grace, the reason for her unique success.  The assessment specifically identifies those who engage in "the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions" as "threat actors."  It also cites "widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19" as having a deleterious effect on government institutions.  Actually, it's the actions of government institutions that often have a deleterious effect on (people's views of) government institutions... and on the people.  But, no matter, our First Amendment rights are out the window.  1984 is here.  "Wrong-thought" has been criminalized.

They're Coming For You.  You Know That, Right?  A chilling Rasmussen survey taken only last month found fifty-five percent of Democrats surveyed supported fines for those who wouldn't get the COVID shot.  Fifty-nine percent of Democrats said citizens who wouldn't take the shot should be confined at home.  Worse still, forty-five percent of Democrats favor designated detention facilities for those who won't take the shot while forty-seven percent believe government should permanently track said "offenders."  Most disturbing, nearly half of Democrats think government should imprison those who publicly QUESTION the efficacy of the shot through traditional broadcast and social media. [...] It's not just anti-shot celebrities the left wants to crush.  Doctors who proscribe off-label use drugs are losing their jobs and reputations.

'White supremacy' is the left's hammer, and you're the nail.  [Scroll down]  In the meantime, they perfected their systems of perpetrating election fraud by 2020.  The fix was in.  The perpetually nasty Biden was installed by a cabal who knew well that he was suffering from dementia but thought they could manage him as they moved ahead with the Obama agenda:  destroy America as founded. [...] Along the way, though, far too many of the American people refused to go along with their carefully crafted plans.  Millions never believed the Russia hoax or any of the other invented tales of suspect criminality with which the left tried to malign President Trump.  They knew better, in part because common sense still prevails in some quarters outside the D.C. swamp and both coasts.  What to do about those Trump people?  Easy:  Accuse them all of being white supremacists.  That will stick.  So the talking points were distributed, and in the blink of an eye, all Trump-supporters were and are white supremacists.

Canadian Army Major Blows the Whistle on the Treason of the Canadian Government Officials.  WhistleBlower Canadian Army Major Stephen Chledowski is ready to fight for the freedom of Canadians back home after serving in Afghanistan.  'These governments are now focused on our Children' he says as he explains that the governments throughout Canada are doing everything they can to harm the children while silencing anyone who points out the truth about the death jabs.  He then calls on other Canadian military members to stand up to the tyranny imposed by the tyrants running the nation.  Listen to his full speech.  'We cannot let freedom die with this generation'.  [Video clip]

DHS Says COVID Misinformation Is Inspiring Terrorism, But It Won't Provide Any Evidence.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) refused to provide evidence to support its claims that COVID-19 "misinformation" and "false or misleading narratives" inspired violent terrorism during 2021.  DHS issued a terrorism advisory bulletin Monday [2/7/2022] warning that of the dangers of online misinformation, which the agency said has been exploited by "threat actors" and to inspire acts of terrorism.  "The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors," DHS said in the bulletin.  "These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence."

DHS: American Thought Police.  The Department of Homeland Security, which under the Biden Administration routinely lets watch-listed terrorists cross the southern border unmolested, and which approved entry to the United States for Colleyville Synagogue hostage-taker Malik Faisal Akram despite his being known to British authorities as a terror risk, has taken upon its broad bureaucratic shoulders an even more challenging job.  Stopping the flow of MDM.  MDM isn't the latest flavor of fentanyl, produced by the Communist Chinese regime for sale to Mexican drug cartels, and now the leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 18 to 45.  No, MDM stands for mis- dis- and mal-information, the latest government acronym from which you must be protected.

Trump Warns Biden Backed DHS Is Calling "Conspiracy Theorists" Terrorists.  What's the difference between a conspiracy theory and the truth?  Usually, just a time span of six months.  All throughout the pandemic, information that was labeled as misinformation and conspiracy theories ended up being true.  Just to name a few, the Wuhan Lab Leak Theory, Natural Immunity being more protective than Covid-19 vaccines, cloth masks being ineffective, and more.  Well, Trump knows that "conspiracy theorists" most of the time are people who don't buy into the corporate media's narrative, and called out the Biden administration for calling conspiracy theorists domestic terrorists.  In a Bulletin sent by the Department of Defense through their National Terrorism Advisory System, the DHS declared that anyone who spreads misinformation or disinformation is a threat to America's security.  The Bulletin by the DHS would go on to say that anyone who spreads disinformation regarding voter fraud is also a threat to the United States Democracy and could cause an uprising that could destroy American institutions.

Time to worry: the Biden government is redefining core principles.  [Scroll down]  The terrorists are no longer radical student groups seeking to blow up the government (groups such as the Weathermen, which Obama's mentor, Bill Ayers, founded) or Islamic fundamentalist groups seeking a new caliphate bathed in American blood.  The new terrorist threat is... you.  It's now official government policy that "misinformation" — which means disagreeing with the Biden administration, the media, and tech tyrants — is proto-terrorism. [...] As Thomas Lifson wrote yesterday, this "sounds precisely like a prelude to a totalitarian crackdown on political dissent...."  Regarding COVID, as Democrats are finally turning on masks (except for masking students, who are least at risk), we can confidently say that every single bit of "information" that the Biden administration pushed out was, in fact, misinformation:  The administration (and its holdovers from the Trump presidency) were wrong about the virus's origins (or lied about them), about therapeutics, about masks, about lockdowns, and about the vaccines' efficacy.  Everything they said was wrong.  But if you doubted or still doubt them, you are a terror threat.

'There's No Law': Physician Experienced in Investigating Biological Warfare Challenges Medical Board's Misinformation Allegation.  Though Dr. Meryl Nass, a board-certified internal medicine physician, has been untangling narratives of dis- and misinformation long before COVID-19, it wasn't until recently that her license was temporarily suspended under the allegation that she is now spreading it.  Her research has brought her before Congress and state legislatures to give testimonies on bioterrorism, Gulf War syndrome, and vaccine safety.  Throughout her career, she's consulted for international health and intelligence agencies regarding prevention, investigation, and mitigation of chemical and biological warfare and pandemics.  She spent three years investigating what had been deemed a naturally occurring anthrax outbreak during Rhodesia's civil war.  Nass was able to prove that it was due to biological warfare, with her findings published in a 1992 paper that marked a new achievement in scientific research.

Biden Dept of Homeland Security Identifies the First Amendment as Biggest U.S. Terrorist Threat.  Dissent is a risk to the totalitarian state; that's also why communists always ban religion.  Totalitarianism needs total control.  Free speech is antithetical to that control.  The natural evolution of any totalitarian state is to use the justification of security as a method for that control; hence, the U.S. received The Patriot Act, and all of the longer-term slippery slope consequences that are never fully discussed at the outset.  I digress.  So, here we are today — facing a U.S. Dept of Homeland Security (DHS), under the current control of the far left, stating that free speech is now the biggest domestic threat for terrorism.  Whereby the voices to target are those voices who might: "sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence."  Undermine trust in government, as defined by anyone who does not blindly trust the policies from Biden administration, and you are now subject to be labeled a terrorist.

Group targets DHS threat bulletin citing false, misleading narratives in domestic terror warning.  A watchdog group is pressing the Department of Homeland Security to disclose its methods behind a new domestic terrorism threat bulletin that warns of "the proliferation of false or misleading narratives" as a cause of undermining public trust in the federal government.  The Center to Advance Security in America (CASA) said it will file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking the basis for the DHS bulletin.  The group said the Biden administration's policy involves "the use of the domestic security state to potentially target political opponents, squash free speech and deliver federal dollars to special interest allies."

DHS issues heightened terror threat citing 'mis- dis- and mal-information' on election fraud and COVID-19.  The Department of Homeland Security issued a Bulletin on Tuesday that sounds precisely like a prelude to a totalitarian crackdown on political dissent from the preferred narratives of the Biden regime and the deep state.  Read the opening of the summary:  ["]The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors.  These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence.["]  Translation:  criticize us and you are encouraging terrorism.  The obvious corollary is that you, who dare disagree with the regime, are a terroristic threat.

Insider Leak, Canadian Federal Police Likely to Begin Mass Arrests in Ottawa Very Soon.  The Ottawa Freedom Convoy protests are exposing too many hypocrisies of the leftist Canadian government and their faux conservative opposition.  It is only a matter of time before both wings of the Federal UniParty vulture known as Parliament sanction an aggressive federal response.  An insider within the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), essentially the Canadian federal police force, has leaked some of the details.  The leaked plan as outlined in this video warning {Direct Rumble Link} does seem to be authentic and aligns with the statements from federal ministers inside the administration of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Ottawa Police Issuing a Tyrannical Edict Which May End the Freedom Convoy.  There's bad news for the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa Sunday [2/6/2022].  The government has been trying to figure out how to do in the Freedom Convoy movement.  They've tried to go after their support, by getting GoFundMe to pull their ability to raise money.  While they headed off GoFundMe, which went along with the government's tyrannical aims, the truckers were able to get another fundraiser started with a different site, GiveSendGo.  Plus they're receiving all kinds of donations from food to gas, personally, right on the front line in Ottawa.  Now, the police are trying to go after those donations of gas and propane that have been sustaining them to run their trucks and help cook their food in the freezing cold.

Washington State Governor's Plot to Criminalize Election Fraud Complaints Moves Forward.  In 2020, Democrat governors and their underlings used COVID-19 as the excuse to change election laws, many times using emergency powers sans legislature, expand mail-in balloting, and remove what few security measures remained, such as signature matching.  Recently, a state court ruled that Pennsylvania election changes by fiat were illegal under the state constitution.  These aren't lies.  They happened.  They may have changed the results of the election.  The take over of local elections offices by Mark Zuckerberg's "Zuck Bucks" also continues to fuel complaints.  But Washington's Gov. Inslee believes people seeking or holding elective office who complain about election chicanery should be punished for holding those wrong-thoughts.  They should be silenced and maybe even jailed for up to a year.  In Inslee's bill, loudly complaining about election fraud that accused complainers knew was bogus, as adjudged by a "jury" according to the governor, could lead to violence.  The person who uttered the words should go to jail, he reasons.  Inslee has never said these words in response to the Antifa and BLM riots during the election of 2016 and 2017 to depose the democratically elected Donald Trump.

From 1984 to 2022.  [Scroll down]  In 2022, embattled Americans are beginning to understand the parallels.  America's liberty and prosperity have drawn immigrants from around the world.  When liberty and prosperity were thriving as never before, Governor Andrew Cuomo countered that America was "never that great," but for the political class there was more to it.  From the start, they contend, America was nothing more than a bastion of racist oppression, founded to preserve and expand slavery.  Like the Party's take on capitalism, America had never produced anything of value.  So down came the statues, inscriptions and "anything that might throw light on the past."  As in 1984, America's founding documents are pure crimethink.  Teacher unions now force feed this propaganda in the schools and when parents object, the Department of Justice calls them domestic terrorists.  The January 6 protesters are held without bail and without trial.  Embattled Americans now face shortages of basic goods, surging energy prices, and rampant inflation.

This Is Not America, Part II.  A little more than a year ago, about nine months into the pandemic, we expressed concern about what had become of our country.  Had it become a nation of elitists vs. the rest?  A culture that had given up on itself?  A land of censorship?  A nation in which policies and political orientation are not merely matters of disagreement but causes of internal and irreconcilable turmoil? [...] The pandemic turned out to be the ideal opportunity for the authoritarians and smug self-appointed superiors among us to continue to split us apart, accrue more power unto themselves, marginalize dissenters, force compliance with a narrative of the deranged, crack down on speech, and use fear as a means of control.  No longer does the U.S. reflect the founders' vision of a nation of free people.  It more closely resembles a junior high school, where status is craved, and the unpopular kids are bullied and cast aside.

Pam Popper: How to Win the War Against Tyranny.  Pam Popper is the president of Wellness Forum Health and cofounder of Make Americans Free Again, which plays a significant role in the fight to help preserve American freedoms.  An important part of that task is building a powerful community and, as noted by Popper, "COVID has brought some people together who probably should know each other better," and that includes us.  Popper and I are aligned with respect to our desire to educate the public about fundamental health principles, including foundational basics for preventing and treating COVID-19.  We are also in agreement that the COVID pandemic is a cover for something else entirely — a global takeover by powerful and profit-hungry interests.

RFK, Jr. — Crackpot or Cassandra?  [Scroll down]  Kennedy simply states the obvious:  it is increasingly difficult to evade or escape a malign government or to even have our own thoughts about government diktats, when tracking and surveillance technologies allow governments to quash dissent in ways that were not technologically achievable for past fascist regimes.  If you didn't know it was RFK, Jr. speaking, you'd think the words that follow are from Rand Paul or Josh Hawley:  [Quote omitted for brevity]  I have never been a fan of RFK, Jr. and I don't agree with his stance on vaccines in general and against the pharmaceutical companies in toto.  However, public pushback against the mandates and restrictions for over two years has exposed grave flaws in our public health policies and regulatory checks and balances, calling into question the trustworthiness of the NIH, CDC, NIAID, and the FDA.  We have seen firsthand the harm they can do when fully shrouded from legal responsibility and are tempted by billions.

Consent of the governed.  Dependence on government and all its "free stuff" has superseded the ability of people to take care of themselves.  Without the benevolent largesse of government, the people cannot survive.  This could be said of any government anywhere.  Canada, our ally and friend to the north, knowingly or not, is engaged in a reckoning.  Have the people become so corrupted as to need despotic government being incapable of any other, or not?  One side, the Freedom Convoy, is saying they are capable of taking care of themselves.  They don't need government micromanagement.  More importantly, they are reminding themselves and their government, that government governs only with and by the consent of the people. [...] The leader of Canada is saying over a million citizens are a fringe minority.  Worse, the fringe minority's views are unacceptable to the government.  Worst of all, the unacceptable views and actions of the fringe minority are harming other citizens, and imperiling everyone's freedom, rights and values.

Government Expands List of Unvaccinated, Now Tracking Both Medical and Religious Exemptions.  The Commerce Department is going to keep a record of all employees seeking a medical exemption from President Joe Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate, under a proposed regulation.  The new rule, placed on the Federal Register on Tuesday, will be the subject of public comment until March 28.  The proposal comes as the Biden administration considers keeping a list of workers who apply for religious exemptions to the vaccine mandate for federal employees.  The Commerce Department has about 47,000 employees and an $11.4 billion annual budget.  The new rule would undermine the personal freedom of federal employees, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., a critic of federal COVID-19 policies, said.  "As I have said repeatedly, these pointless vaccine mandates are a direct violation of the personal freedom of Americans," Johnson told The Daily Signal in a written statement.  "Treating COVID-19 medical exemptions as 'disability accommodations' shows how little the Biden administration and the COVID gods value liberty and informed consent."

The Capitol Police Are Spying on Members of Congress, and the Details Are Incredibly Disturbing.  The events of January 6th have been used as a pretense by partisans for all kinds of insanity over the last year.  From playing fortification theater with the Capitol Building to the government constantly pretending "domestic extremists" are the nation's biggest threat, the game is simple:  To make Republicans who had nothing to do with that day feel political pain.  Another move that caused concern when it occurred was Nancy Pelosi's elevation of the United States Capitol Police to some kind of personal, partisan defense force, including funding offices all over the country used to gather data on those that just so happen to be political opponents.  Now, we are learning just how far that operation goes, and the details are incredibly disturbing.

Is the second American Civil War nearing its conclusion?  Leftists, through a combination of brilliant projectionist strategy and callously evil use of their political opponents' naïvité, decency, and tolerance, have transformed America's institutions.  They have weaponized them and used them against their less aggressive fellow citizens. [...] They are attempting a final push now, one in which they intend to grant the District of Columbia (meaning themselves) two senators, eliminate the filibuster (meaning the ability of the minority party to have any say in governance), pack the Supreme Court (meaning they are chagrinned that this is the one body that they don't fully control at present), and nationalize elections by banning the requirement of identification in every state (meaning they can steal every election going forward... in perpetuity).

"Select Committee on January 6th" Is Above the Law and Beyond Review.  [Scroll down]  Americans assume that if the government wants something from you in your home a search warrant will issue after a judge has reviewed and approved it.  Or, if the government wants your records through a third party via subpoena, the government will issue that subpoena to a third party and the citizen will get a copy.  Only under exigent circumstance (imminent threat) will the person not be notified.  Usually, a citizen may then object via judicial review.  But the J6 committee it has declared that there is no authority above it, that it is beyond judicial scrutiny.  In short, it has the power of an inquisition and its members are inquisitors.  Take the case of Taylor Budowich.  He was connected to Trump's reelection campaign.  He held no government position.  He submitted to the committee's questions and produced requested documents.  He thought, he had nothing to hide.  He was not involved in the J6 riot.  He appeared before the committee lawyers and gave testimony.  At the same time and without his knowledge the committee had subpoenaed his JP Morgan bank records.  He wasn't informed until it was too late and JP Morgan, with counsel from Loretta Lynch (yes that Loretta Lynch) told Budowich it was producing his documents notwithstanding his objections.  The production date was clearly a set-up — December 24th, a date that the court was closed.

Is An Iron Curtain Closing Around America?  Did you think you'd ever live to see the day when America would side with Communist Cuba over freedom-fighters who finally stood up to their authoritarian government?  We saw that in 2021.  Given the noble anti-Communist history of these United States, that's a heartbreaking moment.  More heart-breaking if that's possible is that there are those who still can't see it.  They have bought into the notion that ideas are dangerous and must be stifled.  It is not coincidental that the same people have been desensitized to somehow accept violence and civil unrest as forms of "free expression."  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Congress's 1/6 Committee Claims Absolute Power as it Investigates Citizens With No Judicial Limits.  In its ongoing attempt to investigate and gather information about private U.S. citizens, the Congressional 1/6 Committee is claiming virtually absolute powers that not even the FBI or other law enforcement agencies enjoy.  Indeed, lawyers for the committee have been explicitly arguing that nothing proscribes or limits their authority to obtain data regarding whichever citizens they target and, even more radically, that the checks imposed on the FBI (such as the requirement to obtain judicial authorization for secret subpoenas) do not apply to the committee.  As we have previously reported and as civil liberties groups have warned, there are serious constitutional doubts about the existence of the committee itself.  Under the Constitution and McCarthy-era Supreme Court cases interpreting it, the power to investigate crimes lies with the executive branch, supervised by the judiciary, and not with Congress.  Congress does have the power to conduct investigations, but that power is limited to two narrow categories:  1) when doing so is designed to assist in its law-making duties (e.g., directing executives of oil companies to testify when considering new environmental laws) and 2) in order to exert oversight over the executive branch.  What Congress is barred from doing, as two McCarthy-era Supreme Court cases ruled, is exactly what the 1/6 committee is now doing: conducting a separate, parallel criminal investigation in order to uncover political crimes committed by private citizens. [...] This abuse of power is not merely abstract.  The Congressional 1/6 Committee has been secretly obtaining private information about American citizens en masse:  telephone records, email logs, internet and browsing history, and banking transactions.  And it has done so without any limitations or safeguards:  no judicial oversight, no need for warrants, no legal limitations of any kind.

DOJ Calls Parents "Domestic Terrorists".  Parents who are standing up against the masking of their children at school board meetings are being threatened.  Attorney General Merrick Garland admits he took the word of the National School Boards Administration that parents voicing concerns at their local school board meetings should be targeted as "domestic terrorists."  Citing an increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation's government run schools, AG Garland met with federal, state, Tribal, territorial and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this "disturbing trend."  What?  Parents concerned for their children is a "disturbing trend?"  However, when Garland was questioned by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), not one citing of intimidation or violence could be shown by parents across the USA against any school board members.

CNN Asks if Government Should Take Over Food and Gas Prices.  History may not always repeat, but it rhymes.  As seen in just about every situation where socialism and government intervention in the market economy of any nation is triggered, eventually you get to the point where government solutions to their created crisis take center stage.  We have seen this exact scenario repeated in the former Soviet Union, Poland, Europe, Cuba and more recently Venezuela.  The triggers are the same, and the outcomes are identical.  Now, as unbelievable as it may seem, Joe Biden's socialist policies have triggered the discussion in the United States.  CTH warned this was going to become a narrative; and we saw the first signs of it at the White House podium on January 12th.

Michigan Democrats tell parents they are NOT 'clients' of public schools, that children should be taught 'what society needs them to know'.  Michigan Democrats were heavily criticized over the weekend for telling parents that they are not 'clients' of public schools and that public education teaches kids what society 'needs them to know.'  A Facebook post on Saturday shared by the state's Democrats on their official page blasted the idea that parents should be involved in what public school teach their children.  The post was taken down on Monday morning following heavy disapproval.  'Not sure where this "parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids" is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire,' the post read.

Salt Lake Tribune editorial board calls for deploying National Guard to keep unvaxxed in their homes.  The entire Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board got together and published an op-ed Saturday that has many wondering if we are still living in America.  According to the Board — the whole Board, mind you — Salt Lake City is no longer a "truly civilized place."  If it were, the Board contends, Utah Governor Spencer Cox would find a way to enlist the National Guard in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.  "Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor's next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere," the board wrote.  "But it may be too late for that, politically and medically."  Apparently, the editorial board at the Salt Lake Tribune is frustrated by their government officials — "mostly but not exclusively Republicans" the Board notes with disdain — and their obsession with the Constitution.

Google Executive in Charge of 'Tackling Disinformation' Becomes DHS Senior Leader.  A past senior aide to former President Barack Obama, who became a Google executive in charge of "tackling disinformation", has joined the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a senior leader from this week.  Kristie Canegallo, who was vice president of Trust and Safety in Google beginning March 2018, was appointed chief of staff in DHS on Monday.  "I am excited to share with you that Kristie Canegallo will join our Department as our new Chief of Staff on January 10, 2022," DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement.  "I have worked closely with Kristie in the past and know firsthand that she will be a great colleague and of tremendous support to us all," Mayorkas said.

Comply!
Brilliant Agitprop Appears in Washington DC.  Some brilliant, soviet era inspired agitprop showed up in Washington DC overnight highlighting the agenda of the current Joe Biden administration.  No one knows who the artist is.


The Extreme Left Has Finally Admitted Their End Game for Your Children.  The radical left of the United States is also a tyrannical force with a draconian will, and it too has a goal of bringing your children under their control.  They've been attempting to do so without your knowledge for some time, but now, at least one of them is openly admitting that your children should belong to them.  According to Joe Mathews at the VCStar, despite California Governor Gavin Newsom's "equity" promise that big tech has signed onto, parents are still in the way.  According to Mathews, parents with more privilege tend to hand that privilege down to their children who then compound it and turn it into more wealth, establishing haves amidst others that remain have nots after not having been born into privilege.  His solution?  Illegalize parenting.

Turning the Tables on Our Tyrants.  [Scroll down]  The government's substantial success in forcing society to obey its demands has stemmed from its strategically patient yet endlessly advancing agenda to replace freedom with tyranny.  Mandates did not come all at once; they came bit by bit.  It's just a couple weeks in lockdown.  It's just a mask.  It's just a couple months of remote learning. [...] Likewise, instead of forcing people into compliance all at once, mandates have targeted small subparts of the larger population, while the majority not affected by those orders have remained relatively silent.  One age group at a time has been pushed toward accepting mRNA treatment — from the very oldest in society to the workers to the schoolchildren, and now finally to the newborns.  One profession at a time has been coerced into submitting to the government's demands — from the military to federal workers to health care workers to third-party federal contractors to public unions to private unions to companies with over a hundred workers and, of course, one day soon, to all workers generally.  The exceptions to this "long march" through the professions have only served to show which workers still hold enough political clout to buck (at least temporarily) the authoritarians' demands.  Our armed forces, it turns out, have so little leverage that no exceptions have been made for their conscientious objections.  Postal workers, public school teachers (the same ones hypocritically clamoring for their young students to be injected with mRNA treatments), and other traditional interest group voting blocs for the Democrat party have fared much better.

Why Are They Building A Wall Around The White House?  The last year has seen a lot of construction making its way around the White House, and after the fountain on the South Lawn was renovated a month or two ago we had a bit of a break.  That ended today though as the construction crews moved into the North Lawn and surrounded the fountain with barriers and hoarding in preparation for some new construction at the White House.  Construction like this has been ongoing for over a year at the White House, but they generally move in small bits.  [Video clip]

Army will conduct a two-week 'guerilla [sic] war' training exercise in the woods of North Carolina to teach Special Forces how to overthrow an 'illegitimate government'.  Young Army soldiers will be battling 'seasoned freedom fighters' across two dozen North Carolina counties in a two-week 'guerrilla warfare exercise' where they attempt to overthrow an 'illegitimate government'.  News of the training exercise comes just days after the anniversary of the Capitol riot and as the Justice Department announces the creation of a new 'domestic terrorism' unit to tackle what officials said is an 'elevated threat from domestic violent extremists'.  Some questioned the close timing of the events, while others went further with fears that the Biden administration is 'preparing for American Uprising'.  'Biden's military wargames fighting and killing American "Freedom Fighters" in guerilla (sic) warfare,' one Twitter user posted in reaction to news of the guerilla warfare training on US soil.

The Editor says...
To put it another way, the military will decide if the government is illegitimate.  Sounds like Central America.

The Real Battle Over Education.  When Democrat Terry McAuliffe said he didn't want parents to have influence over their children's education, it wasn't a gaffe; he meant it.  The new totalitarians cannot abide by freedom, especially freedom of education which ensures parents have influence over their children's education and, therefore, future.  The allies of the new totalitarians, however, agree with McAuliffe and other Bolsheviks.  The real reason is because education shapes and molds people; if the educational juggernaut has complete control over education, they have complete control over the next generation, and, therefore, complete control over the future of American society.  Education, as envisioned by leftists, is about control.  It's about power.  It's about propaganda.  It's about ensuring their vision of remaking society is safe and secure.

Biden Administration Making Lists of Religious Vaccine Objectors.  A tiny administrative agency in the District of Columbia announced a new policy Tuesday that will likely serve as a model for a whole-of-government push to assemble lists of Americans who object on religious grounds to a COVID-19 vaccine.  The Pretrial Services Agency for the District of Columbia — a federal independent entity that assists officers in the District of Columbia courts in formulating release recommendations and providing supervision and services to defendants awaiting trial — announced a new records system that will store the names and "personal religious information" of all employees who make "religious accommodation requests for religious exception from the federally mandated vaccination requirement."  The announcement does not explain why the agency needs to create this list except to say that it will "assist the Agency in the collecting, storing, dissemination, and disposal of employee religious exemption request information collected and maintained by the Agency."  In other words, the list will help the agency make a list.  The announcement also does not say what the agency will do with this information after it has decided an employee's religious accommodation request.

Biden administration planning lists of employees seeking 'religious' vaccine exemptions.  An obscure federal agency has proposed creating a database capturing the names and "personal religious information" of government employees who submit "religious accommodation requests" to be exempted from the Biden administration's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.  At least seven other federal agencies, including five Cabinet departments, are apparently setting up similar "personal religious information" databases, according to an analyst at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in the District.  The federal Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia, or CSOSA, published a "notice of a new system of records" in the Federal Register on Tuesday [1/11/2022].  The agency, which supervises defendants awaiting trial as well as parolees, aims to "reduce recidivism" and "integrate offenders into the community by connecting them with resources and interventions."

Biden's Education Secretary Solicited the Infamous Letter Likening Angry Parents to Domestic Terrorists.  The facts of this shameful case are generally well known: the National School Boards Association (NSBA) wrote to the FBI, asking it to investigate as "domestic terrorism"protests at school board meetings against the introduction of Critical Race Theory into public school curricula.  That was bad enough, but now the story has gotten even worse.  On Tuesday, Fox News revealed that "Education Secretary Miguel Cardona solicited the much-criticized letter from the National School Boards Association that compared protesting parents to domestic terrorists," according to an email exchange it had reviewed.

Bill Filed In Washington Would Authorize 'Strike Force' To 'Involuntarily Detain' Unvaccinated Families.  The Washington State Board of Health may soon amend state law to authorize the involuntary detainment of residents as young as 5 years old in Covid-19 "internment camps" for failing to comply with the state's experimental vaccine mandate.  WAC 246-100-040, a proposed revision to include Covid protocol under the state's Communicable and Certain Other Diseases act, outlines "Procedures for isolation or quarantine."  The measure would allow local health officers "at his or her sole discretion" to "issue an emergency detention order causing a person or group of persons to be immediately detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine."

CDC Website Reveals Police Power Will be Used at Quarantine Stations for the "Benefit of Society".  The CDC stated on its website (last reviewed Sept. 2021) that to control the spread of disease within their borders, states have laws to enforce the use of isolation and quarantine.  The law also includes the use of police power functions in their quarantine stations.  "In addition to serving as medical functions, isolation and quarantine also are "police power" functions, derived from the right of the state to take action affecting individuals for the benefit of society," CDC stated on their website.

Will the COVID Pandemic Cause a Big Government 'Ratchet Effect'?  In his classic book, Crisis and Leviathan, economic historian Robert Higgs introduced a key concept that he called "the ratchet effect."  Higgs noted that the power of government grows during times of crisis, such as war or national depression, but that once the crisis passes, the newly acquired power of the State doesn't recede back to its original level. [...] The COVID pandemic appears to supply yet another pretext for the move towards bigger and more authoritarian government.  The toll on personal and economic liberty has been great and the deleterious effects may linger far longer than the virus.

Democratic Governor Calls For Criminalizing "Lying" About Election Results.  For years, I have lamented how the Democratic party has embraced censorship and the criminalization of speech.  I come from a liberal Democratic family in Chicago and the Democratic Party once championed free speech as the defining value of the party.  Democratic politicians now lead calls for censorship to silence their opponents and corporate regulations to protect citizens from dangerous choices in reading material.  The same concerns were raised this week after Washington Gov. Jay Inslee called for the criminalization of "lies" about election results.  Inslee wants to convict people who raise election challenges or allegations.  Such a law would threaten political speech and create a chilling effect for those who want to raise such concerns in contested elections.  Inslee made his comments as part of the Jan. 6th anniversary.  It appears to follow Speaker Nancy Pelosi's directive for Democrats to "preserve the narrative" of that day.

Gov. Inslee proposes bill making it illegal for elected leaders, candidates to spread election fraud lies.  Gov. Jay Inslee proposed new legislation on Thursday [1/6/2022], which would make it a misdemeanor for elected leaders or candidates to spread unfounded allegations of voter fraud.  Speaking on the one-year anniversary of the now-infamous U.S. Capitol riot, Inslee opined that "the threat to our democracy is just as dangerous on January 6, 2022, as it was a year ago."  "I think we do need to do much more than commemorate this day of infamy," he said as part of the Associated Press' 2022 legislative preview.  "I think we need to realize that this is a continuing effort to continue the 'big lie,' to cast doubt on the fundamental workings of our democracy — we simply have to realize the nature of this challenge."

The Editor says...
The candidates and officials will still be able to "spread unfounded allegations" (lie) about anything else, but questioning an obviously stolen election will be strictly forbidden.  This sounds like the easiest way to commit voting fraud:  Cheat all you like, then prohibit any dissent.

Gates, Fauci, and Daszak charged with Genocide in Court Filing.  [Scroll down]  Klaus Schwab, a wickedly intelligent, perhaps diabolical German with double doctorate degrees in Economics and Engineering, is the founder of the World Economic Forum, a club for the wealthiest percentile of the world's corporate and political elite.  He is a power broker who has groomed many presidents, prime ministers, and tech CEOs who now view him with reverence and unswerving loyalty.  Schwab, an economist, and technocrat has befriended many nations, most significantly China's Xi Jinping, who delivered a key speech at Davos.  He praised his vision of a New World Order.  On January 25, 2021, Klaus Schwab vowed his support for Xi Jinping with these words, "Mr. President (Xi Jinping) I believe this is the best time to reset our policies and to work, jointly, for a peaceful and prosperous world.  We all welcome now, his excellency, Xi Jinping, President of the People's Republic of China."

Australia Has Fallen! What the Leftist in Control Say and What they Do are Two Separate Things.  Australia has officiall fallen.  The nation is now a certified police state, citizens are being rounded up and thrown into concentration camps simply because they don't want to put a deadly jab into their body that has resulted in MILLIONS of health issues and deaths across the globe.  Listen to the statements made by just one of the madmen currently in control of the country down under and look at the visuals, what he says he cares about and what he's orchestrating are completely conflicting.  These globalists think they can rule with an iron fist and that the militaries and police units around the world will fall in and comply, based on the fact police and military members are fleeing in droves, looks like they're wrong and the backlash is already happening.  [Video clip]

What The Climate Scare And Pandemic Fearmongering Have In Common.  [Scroll down]  We're not fully convinced the lockdowns were conspiratorial dry runs to accustom the world to future restrictions handed down under the guise of "fighting" global warming.  But as we said when the lockdowns were still relatively new, "observant and cunning politicians have gone to school" and were thinking over the possibility they could "use the pretext of a climate emergency to control Americans and break the back of capitalism."  The ingredients are all present.  A teen activist whose name isn't Greta Thunberg has put down on paper what many are thinking when she wrote "if we can shut the world down to stop a virus, that also means it is possible to do the same for climate change."  It's the sort of superficial statement that earns her points from a puerile media, ever-mugging politicians, and the adults among us who haven't outgrown their insecure high school aspirations to be popular.  And an idea many will run with.  The chilling fact there is much to be afraid of — not of a falling sky or a virus that we hope is on the wane, but of those eager to stir up dread and anxiety so they exercise the raw power they covet.

New Law Will Install Kill Switches In All New Cars.  According to an article written by former U.S. Representative Bob Barr, hidden away in the recently passed infrastructure bill, the very one I warned before would negatively impact drivers across the country if it were to pass, is a measure to install vehicle kill switches into every new car, truck, and SUV sold in this country.  The regulation likely won't be enforced for five years, so maybe there's time to do something about this.  As we've seen both in this country and others recently, what constitutes "law-abiding" can change drastically overnight.  For example, in September a car was pulled over in New Zealand and the occupants arrested when police discovered the trunk was full of Kentucky Fried Chicken meals.  They were smuggling the fast food to customers in locked-down Auckland, against quarantine measures.  Yet not too long before, delivering restaurant orders to people was considered a reputable, legal activity.

The Vaccine Passport Pathway to a Social Credit System.  Simply put the vaccine programs are really population control programs, because by pushing vaccines the elites are pushing vaccine passports which are the first step to creating digital ID numbers on a software platform where every subject's personal information will eventually end up.  Control of information means control of the subjects.  The real-life model for this is the Chinese social credit system.  This system is, through the totalitarian perspective, a brilliant combination of national digital identification numbers combined with high surveillance technology all controlled by advanced artificial intelligence.  Each Chinese subject is branded with a digital number and the surveillance state can follow his employment, medical, criminal and schooling records, his online browsing records, his voiced political views, and even the places he visits through GPS positioning technology. If the subject so much as jaywalks across a street, it will likely be picked up by one of the millions of surveillance cameras installed in Chinese cities and run through face recognition software.

Police State?  Genocide?  Could It Happen Here?  There are many examples in recent years of individuals losing their jobs, having their businesses boycotted, and getting their social media accounts cancelled or suspended because they promoted conservative ideas, supported Biblical standards, or refused to bow down to the demands of the woke culture.  The dehumanization process of conservatives and traditional Christians as "others" and "enemies" is rapidly increasing.  The more it continues to happen, the more many in the media insist that it isn't happening.  A friend of mine recently stated that this can't go on much longer, that millions of Americans are going to stand up against the cancel culture, censorship, and the marginalization of traditional values.  I nodded my head when she said it, but I don't think I really believed it.  When you have a society that is already in the process of banning words, burning Bibles, and allowing four-year-olds to choose their gender, you have a society that has pretty much already jumped the shark.  When you have millions who have sunk so far down the rabbit hole that they actually believe this is "progress," you realize Rome has been burning for a while now.

Tyranny in the Name of Climate Change.  A recent paper published by Cambridge University Press titled "Political Legitimacy, Authoritarianism, and Climate Change" is raising serious and worrisome questions about the role of academia in our national political debate on climate change.  The paper was written by Ross Mittiga, who self-describes as an "assistant professor of political theory at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, specializing in climate ethics." He also labels himself an "environmentalist, vegan, and occasional gadfly."  Mittiga's paper explicitly argues society must prioritize climate action over democratic principles and adopt an authoritarian government if society fails to politically act on climate change.  Or, in the words of the political left:  "my way or the highway."  This is disturbing because it completely ignores the will of the people to self-govern, favoring a totalitarian approach in order to tackle what Mittiag deems a "climate crisis."

Constitutional Peril in Defense Secretary's Straw Man on Extremism in Military.  You'd be forgiven for thinking there's a pandemic of extremism among our military members after watching our military leaders testify on the issue or listening to the mainstream media.  When all the smoke clears, an objective assessment doesn't support that conclusion, and no report to date has delivered any data to indicate otherwise.  Indeed, the secretary's own spokesperson reported that prohibited extremist activity amounted to "fewer than 100 incidents" over the past year.  That's in a force of more than 2 million men and women.  Moreover, responding to a request in 2018 from then-Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the Department of Defense reported only 27 incidents of extremist activity over the previous five years.  The Pentagon's vigorous response to these underwhelming numbers includes actions to consider changes to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, better information sharing with law enforcement, screening of service members, and increased training and education.

Biden Says He Is Ready to Trigger Mandatory Vaccine Requirement for Air Travel as Soon as Fauci Tells Him.  If you listen to most champagne socialists, they will tell you they believe airline travel has become too affordable and just about anyone is able to fly now.  For a few decades this has been a source of consternation amid the Democrat cocktail party class, whenever the subject is approached.  It stands to reason the people behind Joe Biden will eventually concede the issue of mandatory vaccine passports for domestic air travel to the administrative state and their donors amid the Branch Covidians.  They're in the same group circles where Anthony Fauci is venerated and appreciated.  However, I doubt it will happen until after the U.S. universal passport system, the vaccination ID, is put into place — because currently, the airline companies would stand to lose too much revenue.

The Absurdity Continues:  A Test For All Seasons.  The current administration just announced that they are going to provide 500 million test kits for Covid.  These kits will be distributed to the general public somehow and will test for something in some way associated with Covid.  Pardon my skepticism, but I have to wonder just what they will be testing, and what will they do with the results. [...] For starters, which kind of test will be distributed?  Will the tests detect current, active infections, or will they only report that someone might have a current infection, or they might have recovered from one in the past?  If they don't detect an active infection, the only useful result they can provide is to indicate what fraction of the population has recovered and is now immune — in other words, where do we stand on herd immunity.  If the tests are the sort to detect an active case, and samples have to be sent to a lab for processing, I would expect that there would be a significant period between the time the samples were collected, and the labs worked through a massive backlog of tests.  It would, at that point, be likely that someone infected would have already recovered, or died.  Again, what would be the point of the test?

The Editor says...
This sounds like an easy way for the government to collect DNA samples from everybody.  Thee bureaucrats really don't care if you have a virus or not.  If you're sick, there's nothing the federal government can do about it.  Wholesale DNA collection is the simplest and most logical explanation for the "home testing" scam.

The Establishment Wants to Crush You Uppity Peasants.  [Scroll down]  And it's even less tolerable because "Let's Go, Brandon" is a manifestation of the class warfare that increasingly characterizes American society.  It's the cry of the working class, bold and joyous, utterly uncontrollable.  It has energy and cheer, while the pathetic moaning of the ruling caste's spokescreatures is rote, boring, and bereft of any power.  The regime-approved memes our elite's minions repeat on cable and in social media are the chant of serfs.  So, the garbage regime and it's ridiculous legacy media minions must try to stifle this rebellion.  They especially hate that this in no Astroturf meme passed around on some media server list after being decreed from on high.  LGB is infinitely more dangerous.  It's an organic response that is not pushed or guided, but that evolved totally outside the approved channels.  They hate it because it is not theirs, and because they cannot direct it or tame it.  So they try to squelch it.  But it will come back even stronger.  And worse, we'll be laughing at them as we repeat it.

Fauci Is Just a Bureaucrat.  Franz Kafka's stories are described as surreal or dreamlike.  In fact the chief distinguishing characteristic is perpetual instability:  The narrator in a Kafka story accepts whatever new situation he faces with unquestioning compliance. [...] Bureaucracy is a permanent decoupling of activity from morality.  A bureaucrat isn't paid to understand the rules he enforces or the forms he is required to have you fill out.  There is no "why" involved in his life, and so he allows no common sense or flexibility to inform his actions.  Bureaucracy is there for its own sake; it is its own justification.  Bureaucrats are often called civil servants, but in reality they provide no service at all:  It is you, the individual citizen, who must come to serve them, to follow their instructions, to bend the knee and do exactly what they say, as a token of submission to the powers that be.  Otherwise no license, no permit, no job.

Defining 'insurrection' down.  An Oregon father of four cheerfully told President Joe Biden, "Merry Christmas, and let's go Brandon!"  This may not be our country's proudest moment, but it is not exactly a threat to the republic either.  Still, it has some in the liberal media freaking out beyond anything rational.  When Jared Schmeck called into the NORAD Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve, as he does every year with his children, he was not expecting to be connected directly to the president nor did he know his call was being livestreamed by the White House.  At the end of the brief conversation, however, after, Biden told him his children had to be in bed by 9 or Santa wouldn't come, Schmeck said, "Merry Christmas, and let's go Brandon!"  The latter half of that sentence, of course, is a popular and amusing catchphrase disparaging Biden.  Was the statement juvenile?  Yes.  Uncivil?  Sure.  But was it an act of violence?  Well, The Atlantic's Ron Brownstein seems to think so.  Asked about the call on CNN, Brownstein said, "I don't think it is about incivility.  I think it is fundamentally about insurrection."

Dad Who Pranked Joe Biden Says It's Important to 'Voice Disapproval'.  We've done a fair amount of coverage on the story of Jared Schmeck — how he managed to troll Joe Biden during a NORAD Santa-tracking call that he and his kids had with Joe and Jill Biden on Christmas Eve by slipping in a "Let's go, Brandon" at the end of the call.  This caused a meltdown from folks on the left claiming it was somehow so offensive, with many of these folks being the very same folks who, for years, had called President Donald Trump every name under the sun and uttered all types of calumny against him.  They weren't disturbed by "Let's go, Brandon." They were more disturbed that Biden repeated it and agreed with it, showing how completely out of it he was.  For the sin of revealing how broken Joe Biden was, folks on the left then resolved to doxx the man and destroy his life.  He's received threats and people have been trying to hurt his family's business.

Biden's comments about air travel create massive instability in America.  If Democrats aren't intentionally trying to destroy America, they're certainly doing a good job by accident. [...] COVID has jettisoned the deliberation and stability that the Founders envisioned for a constitutional American republic.  Instead, we have a gerontocracy:  government by old people scared of a virus, desperate for power, disdainful of ordinary Americans, and deeply corrupt, whether morally or financially.

The White House's Vaccine Threats Aren't To Keep You Safe.  They're To Keep You In Line.  By now, you've likely seen or heard the latest coronavirus messaging from the White House, which President Joe Biden is scheduled to talk about again later on Tuesday.  The president gave the first doomsday message for the unvaxxed, COVID response chief Jeff Zients repeated it, and chief of staff Ron Klain doubled down on it, so the comments were no slip of the tongue.  This is the administration's official line.  "We are intent on not letting omicron disrupt work and school for the vaccinated.  You've done the right thing, and we will get through this.  For the unvaccinated, you're looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families, and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm," Zients said, one day after Biden made nearly identical comments.  This messaging is problematic for a multitude of reasons, not the least of which is its remarkable ability to further harden 50 percent of the country against the so-called "unity" president, who has shaped up to be leagues more divisive than his predecessor.  But buried under the latest "dark winter" threat is an admission from the Biden White House that its detractors have been right about its aims all along.  The contrast between the in-group and the out-group isn't that one is rid of the virus while the other isn't.  The difference is that one has "done the right thing."

Liking a Facebook Post Could Get Service Members Punished Under Pentagon 'Extremism' Policy.  Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby announced a new "extremism" policy being rolled out by the Pentagon under President Biden and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Monday [12/20/2021] that the Department of Defense says provides "increased clarity" on what amounts to "extremist activities" or "prohibited activity" by service members.  While Kirby "emphasized" that "the Department is focused on prohibited activity, not on a particular ideology, thought or political orientation," the new guidelines create a broad definition for "active participation."

Concentration Camps for the unvaccinated are coming to New York State.  The National Pulse In the next legislative session beginning January 5th, 2022, the New York Senate and Assembly could vote on a bill that would grant permissions to remove and detain cases, contacts, carriers, or anyone suspected of presenting a "significant threat to public health" and remove them from public life on an indefinite basis.  Bill A416 presents a serious risk to the basic liberties of all Americans in the state of New York, including their right to choose whether or not to receive medical treatment and vaccinations related to thus far undetermined contagious diseases.  The bill gives the Governor of New York, his or her delegates — including but not limited to the commissioner and heads of local health departments — the right to remove and detain any individuals or groups of people through issuing a single order.  The orders only have to include the individual's name(s) or "reasonably specific descriptions of the individuals or groups."

New York Legislation Provides for [the] Indefinite Detention of [the] Unvaccinated at [the] Governor's Whim.  In the next legislative session beginning January 5th, 2022, the New York Senate and Assembly could vote on a bill that would grant permissions to remove and detain cases, contacts, carriers, or anyone suspected of presenting a "significant threat to public health" and remove them from public life on an indefinite basis.  Bill A416 presents a serious risk to the basic liberties of all Americans in the state of New York, including their right to choose whether or not to receive medical treatment and vaccinations related to thus far undetermined contagious diseases.  The bill gives the Governor of New York, his or her delegates — including but not limited to the commissioner and heads of local health departments — the right to remove and detain any individuals or groups of people through issuing a single order.  The orders only have to include the individual's name(s) or "reasonably specific descriptions of the individuals or groups."

The New York legislature is poised to hand massive power to the governor.  In roughly three weeks, the New York state legislature will vote on Bill A416, which will give the New York governor (in this case, the power-mad Kathy Hochul), as well as the governor's delegates (i.e., New York's administrative state) the power to indefinitely detain anyone the governor or her agencies deem a "significant threat to public health."  Despite the broad power states have, this violates the Constitution.  At a practical level, it should scare the pants off every American.  There is absolutely no doubt that, under our Constitution, the states have powers that the federal government lacks.  The federal government is explicitly a creature of very limited powers, while the Tenth Amendment makes it clear that those limited powers not reserved to the federal government belong to the state "or to the people."  The Tenth Amendment, however, does not mean that states can play the dictator.  Indeed, since the Civil War, states have been subject to the same constraints as the federal government when it comes to using its police power over the people within its borders.  Thus, the second sentence in the Fourteenth Amendment states explicitly that ["]No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.["]

New York State Assembly Advancing Legislation to Create Involuntary COVID Quarantine Camps.  There are a lot of really good people in upstate New York and outside the boundaries of that crazy city they are best known for.  The New York state assembly passing a bill to set up involuntary COVID quarantine camps needs to be stopped right now.  This is nuts.  The bill is obtuse in the extreme, and grants the state permission to remove and detain someone defined as "a significant threat to public health."  Those of you who have watched the creation of Quarantine Camps in Australia, and those who noted the ongoing activity in Australia seems designed to be a beta test for the USA, will quickly see the common thread with this proposal in New York.

The Great Reset Crowd's Overreach Will Come Back to Bite Them.  So-called "democracies" around the world have proven during these last two years of COVID-1984 just how authoritarian their leaders really are.  They censor, compel, threaten, intimidate, and dole out physical and emotional punishments in as arbitrary and terrifying a manner as any mad king. [...] No matter how absurd the State's "politically correct" declarations, disagreement is now routinely labeled fascist.  If you disagree with the lie that boys can be girls, you're a fascist!  If you think killing the economy to change the weather is insane, you're a fascist!  Paradoxically, the only way not to be a fascist is to abide by everything the State decrees.  Only by believing and repeating everything our Western "elites" say are you then rewarded with their permission to be "free."  All they do is lie, call it truth, and wait for applause.  It's sickening stuff and the kind of shameless rhetorical tripe that only politicians can stomach.  However, this "Great Reset" planned takeover of the world through the subterfuge of a "health emergency" is beginning to sever the globalists' hypnotic control over the people, and those in power seem blind to what's surely coming next.

You Can No Longer Buy Gasoline In Australia Without Scanning A QR Code So The Gov Knows Exactly What You're Doing At All Times.  Just when you thought Australia could not get anymore dystopian, or Chinese, along comes the QR code checking scheme.  Watch as this guy is denied the ability to pay for his gas at a BP station with his credit card unless he first scans the QR code.  The owner of the station refuses him the ability to pay unless he tells the government where he is, what he's buying and how much.  Australia passed the mandatory QR code check-ins for businesses, used to aid COVID-19 contact tracing efforts but many question the massive privacy issues that come with such a program.  [Video clip]

Nine German Jackboot Thug Cops Bully And Take Away 80 Year Old Granny For Not Identifying Herself.  The optics of 9 giant cops putting a finger in the face of an 80-year-old granny while gripping her wrist is beyond these thugs.  This video has gone viral over Twitter and Facebook showing a gang of cops surrounding this elderly woman because she refused to give them her ID.  A police van is seen towards the end of the video pulling up to the curb and grandma is taken away as if she was a common street thug.  [Video clip]

The Opposite of Tyranny Is Not Democracy.  A big part of the "Great Reset" is its orchestrated campaign to condition people into believing they have no natural rights separate from and paramount to the mandates of government.  Most neoliberal nations no longer talk about the global ideological struggle once pitting "free" and "controlled" states against each other.  Why?  Because that distinction makes little sense when Australia is hunting down citizens for fleeing its quarantine concentration camps and Finland is putting Christianity on trial. [...] Sure, you can practice your faith, engage in commerce to make a living, and associate with like-minded citizens to protest the policies of your government.  Except during a pandemic.  Then all bets are off.  You didn't know that super-secret carve-out to your rights?  It's for your own good.  We're trying to save lives here! [...] Our priests inform us that there are new pandemics of uncontrollable racism and unpredictable weather heading our way, and you've figured out what happens during government-declared pandemics, right?  That's correct — all your rights get put back into storage for use at a later time.  So sorry.

This Is a Test You Need to Fail.  [Scroll down]  COVID-19 is a vital part of the project.  It remains the most monstrous human experiment in history, against every law, from every civilized country, including the Nuremberg Code.  After reading reports from several top COVID-19 experts, who are not afraid to speak, the reason for COVID-19 was the vaccine, not the other way around.  COVID-19 and the vaccine were used to introduce spike protein, a contrived, dangerous toxin, to kill off billions of people without anyone noticing it.  Now we have an engineered virus and a mandated vaccine.  The exposure to spike protein (the virus, vaccines, boosters) causes death within days for some (mandated to not be blamed on the vaccine until after 14 days), months and probably years for others.  But the cause and when the death took place is so diverse as to hide the culprit.  If people died immediately after the jab, people would know why.  Although few autopsies have been given after a COVID death, of the ones they did, the find was remarkable... spike protein was in every organ of the body.  The spike protein exacerbates every weakness in the body, so some die of heart attack, some cancer, some pneumonia, diabetes, any number of illnesses.  So, the death cannot be blamed on COVID or the vaccine.

Australia Has Fallen.  Is Our Nation Next?  Regular readers of world events have long since understood this fact — that Australia has turned into a fascist state reminiscent of The Children of Men.  Throughout the course of the past two years, we've witnessed the death of free speech in what was once a (relatively) free nation.  We've seen pregnant women arrested in front of their screaming children for Facebook posts which organized ACTUAL peaceful anti-slavery protests.  Police entered her home, told her she had broken the law for doing so, and took her away an hour before she had her ultrasound.  You can see the video of it below.  Your blood will boil.  [Video clip]

European Union Debates Reconstituting Nazi Medical Policy With Mandatory Medical Procedures and Abolishing Nuremberg Code.  European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has taken the leading elements of a dark time in history and now openly advocates for their repetition.  Can these people not hear themselves?  This is madness.  Mrs. von der Leyen's husband is Heiko von der Leyen, the Director of the US biotech company Orgenesis which specializes in medical research to include cell and gene therapies.  Mr. Heiko von der Leyen organizes the scientific experiments, and then his wife Ursula advocates for forced vaccinations for all citizens within the European Union; and the removal of the prohibitive Nuremberg Code.  This would be a twisted and sick plot within a science fiction movie; however, it is very real.  Austria has already announced compulsory COVID vaccinations which will be enforced starting in February of 2022.  Greece has recently decided to fine all unvaccinated citizens €100 (£85) a month for their non compliance, and Germany announced Thursday a nationwide lockdown for the unvaccinated, as its leaders backed plans for mandatory vaccinations in the coming months.  Germany's incoming Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, said he supports compulsory vaccinations beginning in March 2022.  These European leaders are insane.

This information may come in handy someday.
Escape:  How to Evade Trackers and Tracking Dogs.  I wanted to share with you a few tips on evasion and how to avoid enemy capture when you are being searched for by canines and professional trackers.  As a kid, I used to track deer through the swamp.  Little did I know that what I was doing was preparing myself to be a human tracker as an adult. [...] A dog can be a great friend but it can also be used against you.  Dogs can be trained to track you for lengthy distances.  This is why evasion tactics are covered in the SERE training.  In the field application, tracker dogs are used while the trainees employ the survival skills of navigation, and how to get water, food, and warmth as they track their way through the wilderness.  Proper timing is also a key factor since it's not just about survival but also about evasion.  Beating dogs in their tracking is not an easy task unlike what you might have seen in Hollywood films.  The dogs don't bark; they only run as they sniff and the only time the canines bark is when you are on sight.  At this point, evading is quite tricky since your hideout is already revealed.

The Frogs Have Begun Fleeing the Government's Boiling Pot.  The federal government spies on every email, text, and call you make.  It uses your phone's location services to pinpoint where you are at all times.  It knows which I.P. addresses are associated with online comments that have been deemed "politically incorrect."  Its partnerships with Amazon and Walmart let it know what you're reading and buying.  Its partnerships with Google and Facebook let it know what you're thinking.  Its partnerships with Twitter and Hollywood allow it to censor unapproved messages before too many brains have the opportunity to consider new thoughts.  Its alliance with credit card companies allows it to track all your financial transactions and thereby understand your habits, preferences, choices, and addictions.  Its alliance with cellular companies allows it to monitor all your movements, contacts, and associations.  And all of these consumer comforts that are used by the "national security" surveillance state to watch everyone in real time constantly measure every American's potential for subversiveness, even when that American is engaged in the most mundane things during the course of an ordinary day.

Build Back Bummer:  Biden's Spending Spree Includes a Kill Switch for Your Car.  Remember the good ol' days of the Affordable Care Act?  Remember when Nancy Pelosi said we had to pass the bill to learn what was in it?  Yeah, that was great, wasn't it?  Good times.  Well, hold on to your seatbelts, sports fans.  Biden's infrastructure bill promises to be an even bigger piñata filled with objects usually found in your cat's litterbox.  According to an op-ed by former Georgia Representative Bob Barr, the package contains a well-hidden item:  kill switches in cars.  Ostensibly, the device, whatever it is, will passively monitor the driver for indications of impaired operation and turn the car off if it decides there is a problem.  If that isn't enough overreach for you, get a load of this:  The system can be accessed by third parties.

DOJ Prosecutors Using Grand Jury to Subpoena Financial Records of 2020 Election Audit Groups.  The Washington Post is writing a story today [11/30/2021] about federal prosecutors using grand juries to subpoena the financial records of individuals and groups who were associated with the 2020 election audit efforts.  The motives here are very predictable. [...] The specifics of this first report surround attorney Sidney Powell and her 'Defend The Republic' organization, one of several individuals and groups who were raising money to support 2020 election audits.  The Sidney Powell, Mike Flynn, and Patrick Byrne network are under review.  As you review the article it is important to note few key elements:  (1) The subpoena document's were leaked to the Washington Post by someone inside the investigation; that speaks toward the larger motive of the DOJ/FBI effort itself.  (2) The specific DOJ prosecutors are the same ones working hand-in-glove with the J6 committee.

CDC orders all US airlines to turn over names of passengers who've been in eight African countries facing travel restrictions due to the Omicron variant.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is ordering all airlines to turn over the names and other information of passengers who arrived in the U.S. from eight countries that are facing travel restrictions[.]  The directive, first reported on Wednesday by Reuters, has been issued in an effort to quickly identify and stop the spread of the Omicron variant.  The countries include Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

CNBC Pundit Calls Unvaxxed People "Psychotic", Demands U.S. Military Hunt Them Down, Force Vaccine or Force Quarantine.  This is one of the people inside the inner circle of Nancy Pelosi, a good personal friend.  As you watch this short video segment ask yourself about the mental stability of a person who would advocate publicly for American citizens to be hunted down by the U.S. military, vaccinated against their will or forcibly quarantined.  This was actually broadcast to the CNBC audience.  In a twisted display of irony, financial pundit Jim Cramer calls unvaccinated people "psychotic"?  [Video clip]

Domestic Travel Ban for Unvaccinated 'Not Off the Table' Says Psaki.  Even though Biden suspended his vaccine mandate for federal workers to save himself a few approval points, he's nevertheless looking for alternative ways to "force" people to get vaccinated, and a domestic travel ban is one such possibility. [...] However, like his vaccine mandate, a ban on domestic travel is also unconstitutional, as it is guaranteed under the Fourteenth Amendment.  Unfortunately, the Biden administration doesn't even consider the Constitution as a guideline, let alone a set of rules.

Why Do People Willingly Sacrifice Their Freedom?  In the video above, Mattias Desmet, professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University in Belgium, reviews the societal conditions under which a population ends up willingly sacrificing their freedom.  Desmet, who also has a master's degree in statistics, discovered peculiar anomalies in statistical analyses done during the COVID pandemic, which made him realize our global society is starting to enter a "mass formation" state, a type of "collective hypnosis" required for the rise of a totalitarian regime.  In this Aubrey Marcus podcast interview, Desmet reviews the step-by-step formula that results in this collective hypnosis, and how this formula has been deployed on the global population over the past two years.

Armed agents in Texas school district arrest concerned parents in their own homes.  The Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) in Texas is using its own armed agents to arrest parents who speak out against the school board's policies, according to Christopher Rufo in the City Journal.  Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, said:  "The battle lines are clear:  on one side, the Biden administration, public school bureaucrats, and their armed agents; on the other, parents and families who oppose school closures, mask mandates, critical race theory and corruption.  Public school officials have demonstrated a willingness to use police power to silence and intimidate their opponents."

On The Use Of Fear As A Government Tactic.  Perhaps a public debate on governmental lying and manipulation through the purveying of fear is about to begin.  God willing, it will.  I raise this hope because of a remarkable article that appeared in the Daily Telegraph (UK).  Excerpts follow.  No comment seems required, except the obvious:  This has been a Global phenomenon.  Which means:  coordinated.

Use of fear to control behaviour in Covid crisis was 'totalitarian', admit scientists.  Scientists on a committee that encouraged the use of fear to control people's behaviour during the Covid pandemic have admitted its work was "unethical" and "totalitarian".  Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B) expressed regret about the tactics in a new book about the role of psychology in the Government's Covid-19 response.  SPI-B warned in March last year that ministers needed to increase "the perceived level of personal threat" from Covid-19 because "a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened".  Gavin Morgan, a psychologist on the team, said:  "Clearly, using fear as a means of control is not ethical.  Using fear smacks of totalitarianism.  It's not an ethical stance for any modern government.  By nature I am an optimistic person, but all this has given me a more pessimistic view of people."

Republicans Sound Alarm:  Claim ATF Moving Toward Gun Registry.  More than 50 Republican House members are warning the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, (ATF) may be quietly working behind the scenes to put a gun registry in place.  FOX News reports Rep. Mike Cloud (R-TX) and 50 of his colleagues sent a letter to ATF Director Marvin Richardson earlier this week, and used the letter to sound the alarm on a possible registry.  The Republicans warned that a proposed ATF rule change would put in place a requirement that Federal Firearm License holders (FFLs) preserve firearm transaction records that are beyond 20 years old.  McCloud warns that no such requirement currently exists, and instituting one effectively creates a de facto registry based off gun sales.

Destroying Democracy by 'Saving Democracy'.  Following the September 11 Attacks, it was common to hear liberals and Democrats bemoan the erasure of civil liberties by the federal government as the War on Terror ratcheted up.  The CIA, FBI, and other apparatuses of the security-surveillance state were assailed for their abuses of Constitutional civil liberties.  Now, however, these same people — sans a few — are mostly quiet.  In fact, they're not merely quiet anymore, many openly endorse letting loose the hounds of the security state on fellow Americans whom they deem their enemies. [...] They claim to be "saving democracy."  They claim to support "multiculturalism."  They claim to defend "diverse opinions." Except they don't.  They only democracy they care about is their propagandistic democracy; by forcing the majority of Americans to comply with their views they claim the democratic spirit lives on.

Too many religious institutions failed the COVID test.  What's been so disheartening during the past 20 months is the willingness with which religious institutions have gone along with the states' mandates.  In Canada, Rev. Artur Pawlowski has fought back, but no representatives from major religions have supported his efforts.  He embarrasses, rather than inspires, them.  The virtue of COVID is that it has separated the wheat from the chaff.  To the leftists, the people who are chaff are those who refuse to wear masks and get shots.  However, in the grander scheme of things, the chaff is those people who have used the virus as an opportunity for despotism and those people — including men and women of God — who have happily gone along with it.

California County Issues Mask Mandate for Private Homes Ahead of Thanksgiving.  Santa Cruz County in California issued a mask mandate for all indoor settings, including private homes, ahead of the holiday season.  The mandate went into effect at 11:59 p.m. on November 21 and requires "all individuals to wear a face covering when indoors regardless of vaccination status."  "Unfortunately, a potential winter surge appears to be a significant threat to the health and safety of our community," said Santa Cruz County Health Officer Dr. Gail Newel in the announcement.

The Editor says...
They're telling you what you can do inside your house because of a "potential winter surge" of a disease that's so terrible, many people don't even know they have it.  If you're going to live in fear of a "potential winter surge," you should at least be afraid of something that is likely to happen, and much more likely to affect us all.  Like a winter surge in the price of gasoline.

Unvax Tax:  Expert Proposes Monthly Fines for the Unvaccinated.  Vice President of the Lower Austrian Medical Association Gerrit Loibl has suggested that the government should levy a monthly fine of up to €100 to anyone unvaccinated.  Loibl has suggested that those who have not been vaccinated should pay between €90 and €100 (£78-£84/$90-$113) per month to the government, claiming that the amount is based on the current tax on tobacco products.

The Editor says...
It's only a hundred dollars.  In Austria, you could spend that much on a tank of gas.  And this tax will never increase, right?

Leaked HHS Memo Reveals Biden Admin Seeks to Strip Americans of Religious Protections.  A leaked memo from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reveals plans by the Biden administration to make changes to Americans' First Amendment rights and other religious liberty protections.  The internal memo describes plans to "sign delegation of authority on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and religion clause of the First Amendment" to the Office for Civil Rights (OCR).  It's a move that Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Lankford believes will undo religious liberty protections and disregard the First Amendment.

My Hippie Vietnam War Professor Was Right About the Dangers of the Patriot Act.  [Scroll down]  Currently, the federal government is isolating and targeting very different enemies of the state than it was in 2001, to say the least.  Among these are soccer moms who don't like their sons being taught that their sex and skin color makes them guilty of some ancestral sin that justifies their having become the victims of perpetual discrimination in applying to college or a job.  They are fathers who don't like the idea that a 16-year-old boy who is pretending that he's a girl can share a shower with his 16-year-old daughter after volleyball practice.  They are parents who don't like that their elementary schoolchildren are being told that they may truly be something other than a boy or a girl, or that they should sexually experiment upon themselves.  They are racial minorities who don't like that their sons and daughters are being taught that they're perpetual victims in America, or that phantom impediments to success are oppressing them.  And many among all of those parents take issue with their children being taught that their race is anything more than an immutable trait that is profoundly unimportant relative to kindness, intelligence, work ethic, and what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to as "character" when relating his famous dream to the American people.  Today, the federal enforcement mechanisms meant to combat terrorism, including those of the Patriot Act, are being used against all of those Americans with whom a clear majority ideologically and politically agree.

How do you teach millions of people to obey the State?  [Scroll down]  I would ask those people who do not yet see clearly what is going on in the United States to ask themselves whether they have less or more freedom than they did two years ago and, if they're old enough, whether they have less or more freedom than they did before the national security surveillance state came into existence after 9/11.  And then I would ask one more question:  in the last century of the U.S. government claiming new powers for itself during some "emergency crisis" sold to the American people as a temporary expedience, has any of those "emergency powers" over the people ever been relinquished?  Governments, by their nature, will illegitimately accrue power until the people they insist on ruling have had enough and begin pushing back.  That, too, is an unequivocal yet painful lesson remembered and relinquished by man through the centuries.  Again, that is where we are today.

FBI Used Unnecessary Brute Force On America's Mom Founder.  Sherronna Bishop tells of horrific FBI harassment during a raid on her home, and abuse of her children.  [Video clip]

Mother Describes FBI Raiding Her Home For Speaking Out Against Election Fraud & Radical School Boards.  A Colorado mother explained a harrowing account of the FBI raiding her home for speaking out against far-left officials on her local city council.  Sherronna Bishop, founder of activist group America's Mom, joined Steve Bannon's War Room on Saturday to describe how a SWAT team rammed down her door and terrorized her children as they handcuffed her and dragged her away on Tuesday.  "I have always been available, and yet they chose to come to my home in this way: break down my door, terrorize my family, and put me in cuffs," Bishop said.

Showdown! Will the Cops and Military Go Along With This?  [Of course they will!]  [Video clip]

First Mom Raided By FBI Since October 4th DOJ Memorandum?  An FBI SWAT team raided the home of an activist mother of three in Colorado on Tuesday, Nov. 16, knocking down her door, bursting into the house and handcuffing her while she was homeschooling her children.  This is the first known case of the federal government making good on its promise to not only intimidate but actually carry out a raid on a mom who was involved in her local school board politics, said Brannon Howse, who interviewed Sheronna Bishop on his live broadcast at Lindell TV Wednesday night. [...] The U.S. Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland issued an Oct. 4 memorandum directing federal, state and local law enforcement to look for parents to prosecute nationwide who may have made "threats" and made "harassing" phone calls to school board members nationwide, equating such parents to domestic terrorists.  Now a mother, Sheronna Bishop of Grand Junction, Colorado, has felt the brute force of the FBI's heavily armed SWAT unit used against her family.

The Ten Stages of Genocide Are Hitting a Little Too Close to Home.  [Stage 7] Preparation:  The victims of future mass killing are identified, separated, and forced to wear distinguishing symbols.  You didn't think the Biden regime was collecting information on gun-owners in order to fight crime, did you?  You didn't think using the Post Office to spy on Americans' social media accounts was for their own good, right?  Why are Democrats pushing so hard to expand the IRS's snooping powers into every American's checking account?  The U.S. government is busy making its list and deciding right now whether you've been naughty or nice.  [Stage 8] Persecution:  Governments begin forcing members of victim groups into special camps.  If Australia's or Canada's efforts to build internment camps for the "unvaccinated" seem like foreign news, perhaps the state of Washington's efforts to do the same thing should pique Americans' interest.  How does one distinguish among quarantine, internment, and concentration camps anyway?

The Continued American Awakening of The FBI as an Official Enforcement Mechanism of The Fourth Branch of Government.  The FBI is a U.S. version of the Russian "State Police"; and the FBI is deployed — almost exclusively — to attack domestic enemies of those who control government; while they protect the interests of the U.S. Fourth Branch of Government.  That is the clear and accurate domestic prism to contextualize their perceived mission: "domestic violent extremists pose the greatest threat" to their objective.  Put another way, "We The People", who fight against government abuse and usurpation, are the FBI's actual and literal enemy.  Let me be very clear with another brutally obvious example.  Antifa could not exist as an organization; capable to organize and carry out violent attacks against their targets; without the full support of the FBI.  If the FBI wanted to arrest members of Antifa, who are actually conducting violence, they could do it easily — with little effort.  It is the absence of any action by the FBI toward Antifa, that tells us the FBI is enabling that violent extremist behavior to continue.  Once you accept that transparent point of truth; then, you realize the FBI definition of domestic violent extremism is something else entirely.  The FBI is not a law enforcement or investigative division of the U.S. Department of Justice.  The FBI is a political weapon of a larger institution that is now focused almost entirely toward supporting a radical communist agenda to destroy civil society in the United States.

Yes, Austria will lock down all of the unvaccinated... permanently?  It appears that Austria and Australia will soon have more in common than most of the letters in their names.  We previously learned that unvaccinated Australians will be looking at being essentially confined to their homes for the foreseeable future following sweeping new government mandates.  But now the government of Austria is preparing to follow suit.  Austrian Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg made the unofficial announcement on Friday [11/12/2021], with an official order expected in the next few days.  After seeing another surge in new COVID cases, Austria's government had already put a number of restrictions in place, but under the new order, there won't be any wiggle room left.  Also, the number of people under mandatory vaccination orders is being expanded.  The lockdown order initially only covers two regions, but on Sunday they plan to take it nationwide.

Six Details That Reveal [the] Long Reach of Biden's Vaccine Mandate.  President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for private employers often is described as requiring employees of large companies either to be vaccinated or be tested weekly.  But when you dig into the details, the mandate is far more invasive than that.  Nonvaccinated employees must wear masks, even if they are being tested weekly.  Employers must maintain records of employees' vaccination status.  Employees who lie to their employers about their vaccination status could face up to five years imprisonment, while employers who do not comply with the mandate face fines of $13,653 per violation.  The Biden administration is trying to make noncompliance with the federal government's legally dubious vaccine mandate a dangerous proposition for employers and employees.  "We've been patient, but our patience is wearing thin," Biden said in a Sept. 9 speech in which he announced the coming vaccine mandate.  The Labor Department then issued an emergency rule that requires businesses and other organizations with 100 or more employees to get a shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.  The mandate is intended to supersede state laws.

What Is an America that Holds Prisoners Indefinitely without Charging Them?  The U.S. is facing a serious constitutional crisis over the handling of the cases of defendants in the Jan. 6 so-called "insurrection" in Washington, D.C. to protest the presidential election modus operandi and the results.  Those being held for many months without a trial are being denied their habeas corpus rights under the U.S. Constitution and even dating back to English law hundreds of years before our Constitution was implemented.  Not only are they being incarcerated without having had a trial, but there is some evidence that they are being mistreated or are being held 23 hours a day in solitary confinement, which is a punishment accorded only the most dangerous criminals, such as serial killers and terrorists.  What are habeas corpus rights?  According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), "[h]abeas corpus is a fundamental right in the Constitution that protects against unlawful and indefinite imprisonment.  Translated from Latin it means 'show me the body.'  Habeas corpus has historically been an important instrument to safeguard individual freedom against arbitrary executive power."  A citizen must be charged and cannot be held indefinitely.  A charge requires a trial, and, if found guilty in a trial, there is a sentence for a specific amount of time.

Australians Beg The World For Help.  Australia, as we once knew it, no longer exists.  Australians are no longer 'young and free.'  Instead, Australians are discriminated against, pitted against each other, blackmailed, pressured, beaten, and stripped of their rights.  It has become a country where you can no longer move and speak freely.  Protesting is prohibited, police officers must enforce controversial measures to keep their jobs, and police shoot protesters in the back as they run away.  Doctors and nurses who speak out lose their license to practice medicine, and others lose their jobs if they refuse "the jab."  More and more children are isolated and attempting suicide.

How did we get here?  Can this mess be fixed?  We have entered a dark age.  Truth, not always abundantly obvious, has been increasingly shrouded thanks to the growing cynicism and polarization of our day.  The condition is getting worse by the day. [...] The president of the United States, unable to persuade half the nation of his "truth" about the only solution to the threat of COVID, has resorted to force.  You will wear a mask.  You will distance yourself from other human beings.  You will be injected with an experimental drug despite its adverse effects on health in the short term and utterly unknown and unknowable effects in the long term.  End of discussion.  How far has this thinking been extended?  In previous diktats from on high, there have been exceptions allowed for conscience and religious beliefs.  Not on Joe Biden's watch.  The path was cleared for this tyranny by the medical establishment, media, Big Tech, and corporate America suppressing all dissenting views.  Freedom of speech has morphed into freedom to agree.

Vaccine Mandates — What's the End Game?  Vaccine passports and QR codes are already balkanizing the world, creating a new group of socio-economic pariahs, blocking the unalienable rights of many for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  Other countries are taking an even more extreme approach.  Unvaccinated Australians will remain in virtual prison until at least 2023, their key freedoms eliminated.  Similar restrictions are in place in Germany, and America is following suit.  Will this all be temporary or permanent?  Eventually herd immunity will be reached via natural infection and vaccinations and such draconian restrictions will no longer be necessary.  Or will they?  Power is addictive, an aphrodisiac to those charged with representing their people.  Now it's vaccines, but what next?  Once a population is compliant, beaten down by fear and shame, they are less likely to resist present and future controls, regardless of founding documents or natural law.  Law enforcement and the military can squash any pockets of rebellion, as we know from history, whether Hitler's Germany, Stalin's USSR, or Mao's China.  The courts may temporarily halt the mandates, but there will be appeals, likely all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and there is no way of predicting how that will end.  Do mandates even matter if companies are taking it upon themselves to enforce vaccinations with the noncompliant being fired?

The Biden Regime Will Turn the Military on the People Unless We Push Back.  "The coldest of all cold monsters." That is what the modern state is.  Nietzsche's devastating analysis in Thus Spoke Zarathustra hit the nail on the head:  the state is an engine of death.  It wages war on the people, its agents are "annihilators" who seek the destruction of everything vital and potent.  All who witnessed the last 18 months of the COVID regime and the biomedical tyranny imposed by Joe Biden and his handlers implicitly understand what Nietzsche meant.  The bureaucrats who make up the arm of the state, who serve this cold monster, hate the people.  They make their lives miserable.  Lockdowns, vax mandates, mask orders, critical race theory in schools, transgender bathrooms ... the list goes on and on.  Ritual humiliation is the point.  The agents of state power see themselves as the rightful masters of the people.  To these creatures of the institutions, citizens are nothing but human resources to be bent to their malformed will.  This perverse view extends even to the American military.  The time is coming, soon, in which the armed forces will be turned openly against the people.  The Biden inauguration lockdown in D.C. — replete with checkpoints, thousands of national guardsmen, and the full weight of the nation's security apparatus — was only a taste of things to come.

One minute before midnight
One Minute Before Midnight.  The clock shows one minute before midnight.  This is it.  No exaggeration.  But that clock isn't illustrating the time Earth has left until it is consumed by man-caused climate change.  Instead, it is telling us how little time remains before the United States, erstwhile land of the free and home of the brave, becomes just another sterile authoritarian state.  Before it is too late to reign in a tyrannical government that has made a mockery of the Founders' vision of limited government of, by, and for the people.  A government that is now openly of, by, and for itself.  A government that is rapidly becoming as opaque, dishonest and abusive as those it used to challenge and even fight.


Second-Class Citizens in Biden's America.  A definition of a second-class citizen is a person belonging to a social, economic, or political group whose rights and opportunities are inferior to those of the dominant group in society.  We are witnessing the societal standing of a large segment of the American people being increasingly diminished by the policies of the Biden administration and numerous current events.  Consequently, the collective standing of today's so-called deplorables is being increasingly relegated by our political system to expendables.  Big Government aligned with left-leaning Big Business, the permanent Administrative State, the mainstream media, Big Tech and social media, the entertainment world, and our educational and academic establishments is in the process of radically transforming our way of government and ultimately the nature of our society.  The parties mentioned above collectively are often referred to as the elites, the Establishment, or the Deep State.  On the other hand, the deplorables constitute a large segment of all middle- and working-class Americans.

Rise of the Vaccine Bullies.  [Scroll down]  Fast-forward to 2021, and the positional bullies unite behind a propaganda success: the "pandemic."  As bullies are wont to do, they bark orders that hurt people, destroy lives.  School districts close schools, rob kids of a normal childhood, take away once-in-a-lifetime occasions like proms and graduations, inflict long-term damage to kids' education and future earnings.  Governors order states shut down for weeks, months.  On reopening, they parcel out freedom, just certain businesses and partial openings.  This reign of terror closed 200,000 businesses for good — not just storefronts, but real people, real incomes stolen, real lives destroyed.  However, those tyrannical crackdowns were just a prelude to the big push, the real exercise of control over the people, the vaccine.  They started out asking nicely, but then orders started to fly.  Federal workers, military, have to take the jab.  Then corporatism (economic fascism) rears its ugly head when companies team up with government to issue ultimatums.  You want to eat, you want your kids to have a home and clothes, you want health insurance for your family, then you will take the jab.  No excuses, no exceptions.

How Much Would You Like to Be a Serf?  While the idea of "lords and ladies" may seem like ancient history, the fact is that the reactionary thinking of the court intelligentsia is still very much with us.  The leaders of today's Democrat party view themselves as more intelligent and entitled than the mass of deplorables whom they were born to govern.  Not just that:  The intelligentsia is determined to eliminate the middle class, whose values and political interests are so much opposed to their own insistence on centralized control.  To this end, today's progressives are doing all they can to block the path to the middle class — a path that expanded dramatically under President Trump.  It is not in the left's interest to have a broad, inquisitive, educated, assertive middle class demanding the right to govern themselves.

The Danger for Mankind Is Not the Climate, but Toleration of a Devious Policy that Uses Climate To Destroy Us!  All the symptoms of a collapsing system are right before our eyes, if we care to see them:  an economic system in which the balance between cost and benefit is totally out of balance, an accelerating hyperinflation that devours our earnings, a good healthcare system that only the rich can afford, an education system that teaches neither excellence nor moral values, an out-of-control woke culture that turns people against each other, a disastrous geopolitical confrontation policy against alleged rivals — and the list could go on and on!  All these manifestations of crisis have a common cause:  We in the West are living under the dictatorship of a financial oligarchy, for which the common good is nonexistent, and whose sole interest is to maximize its own privileges.  An oligarchy that needs "endless wars" to generate income for its military-industrial complex, and promotes the production and distribution of mind-destroying drugs, both illegal and legalized, the latter because the financial system would have collapsed long ago without the input of laundered drug money.  And given that this system is now hopelessly bankrupt, the entire economic and financial system is now supposed to be converted to so-called green technologies in a final great coup — the Great Reset.  Under the pretext of climate protection, the motto for this conversion is "Shifting the Trillions."  And it's happening now!

Obama's Police State Dream Is Coming True.  The U.S. Capitol Police have been authorized to open field offices in two states, Florida and California, ostensibly to investigate threats against members of Congress.  A Capitol Police spokesperson said additional field offices will be opening, prompting fears of a massive federal law enforcement overreach:  the nightmare scenario of a police state.  I predict the Capitol Police expansion is a move toward abolishing all state and local law enforcement agencies, and replacing them with a nationwide federal law enforcement presence.  Why?  Because according to Democrats, state and local police departments are racist institutions that keep the boot of white supremacy on the neck of black America.

New Hampshire and Pennsylvania Join Ohio, Missouri and Withdraw from the National School Boards Association.  Four states have decided to terminate their National School Boards Association membership over a letter comparing the parents to domestic terrorists.  The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Ohio and Missouri School Board Associations terminated their membership with the NSBA.  The New Hampshire School Boards Association is the latest to leave the NSBA after it sent a letter to Biden that begs him to use federal law enforcement agencies against parents and investigate them for "domestic terrorism and hate crime threats."  The National School Board was so outraged that parents were speaking out in defense of their children that they shamelessly urged the DOJ to use the Patriot Act, among other "enforceable actions" against them.

Montana Memo Revealed:  DOJ Blueprint to Persecute and Intimidate Parents.  During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday [10/27/2021], Attorney General Merrick Garland stated that he does not intend to retract an October 4 Department of Justice directive vowing to target parents at school board meetings.  The DOJ directive was based fully on a September 29 letter signed by Viola M. Garcia, EdD and Chip Slaven, Esq. from the National School Board Association (NSBA).  After much pushback, the NSBA stated on October 22 that they "regret and apologize for the letter."  Despite the NSBA apology, Attorney General Merrick Garland is doubling down on his quest to persecute and intimidate parents.  Garland also denied knowing about a memo originating in Montana from the Acting United States Attorney's office.

Virginia mother says feds, helicopter showed up at school board meeting and she's received 'daily threats'.  A mother of six in Fairfax County, Virginia said Wednesday that federal agents, including unmarked vehicles and a helicopter, were present at a recent local school board meeting.  "This is something that is incredible in America and it's ridiculously un-American," said Stacy Langton during an appearance on "Fox & Friends."  Langton shared a photo on Twitter of a Department of Homeland Security vehicle as well as several "ghost cars," which could have been either unmarked local or federal vehicles.  In addition, Langton said a helicopter flew overhead, shining its spotlight down on the event.

Will Governments Survive the Coming Peasant Revolt?  Let's talk big picture here.  Why has the world been turned on its head these last few years?  Why does it seem as if everything true is labeled false and everything false is labeled true? [...] Let's start with three premises:
  [#1]   All governing systems (political, financial, technocratic) operate to preserve and expand their power.
  [#2]   Catastrophic governing failure leads to complete loss of power for those in charge.
  [#3]   Governing systems in the process of failing compensate by eliminating competition and increasing overall control.
In other words, even the most free and dynamic social systems degrade over time as the people who govern those systems distort them in pursuit of greater personal wealth and power.  Corrupted systems eventually lead to breakdown and collapse.  As collapse nears, social systems become so vulnerable to unsanctioned actions and ideas that they close themselves off.  Freedom is replaced with tyranny.  This is by design.

MSNBC host agrees:  Unvaccinated should be denied access to basic goods and services.  MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan supports segregating those who are unvaccinated against the coronavirus and denying them access to basic goods and services.  Remember, folks:  It's about public health.  It's definitely not a new-age religious cult whose most zealous adherents believe the path to salvation is through punishing the wicked "unbelievers."  Hasan's comments in support of isolating the unvaccinated came this week in reference to public remarks made by left-wing luminary Noam Chomsky (he's still alive, by the way).  Chomsky said this week during an interview with Curt Jaimunga that the issue of vaccine mandates — that is, forcing the unvaccinated to accept vaccines or face a specific set of consequences — is a "mixed story."  He suggested there must be some compromise struck between individual liberties and public health, adding that society itself should form a sort of "social convention" wherein the unvaccinated are pushed into isolation.

Our Phoney War.  A blitzkrieg was launched against us in 2020, beginning with a virus, progressing to censorship of medical information, loss of livelihoods, coerced inoculation, and now threatening control of our lives by electronic passports.  The "vaccines" must be universally accepted, against medical contraindications, moral objections, and whether or not they cause death and debilitating injuries.  We gamely agreed to two weeks to flatten the curve, and now it's been two years, with no signs of retreat.  Evil is a tapeworm; it never gets enough.  If American institutions and agencies are deliberately deceiving and manipulating us, that's not poor judgment; that's evil.  If the pandemic was planned, if the virus was lab-engineered, if news of effective treatments was silenced to create conditions into which a lucrative vaccine could be introduced, and if that vaccine causes more damage than good while being forced on the population... that's evil on a grand scale.  It is utterly futile to hope that it will go away on its own and allow us to have our "normality" back. [...] War has been declared, not by a foreign enemy, but by the very domestic institutions we have trusted in the past.

Are Parents a National Security Threat?  In case you've not heard, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) has mobilized against a new and unprecedented "threat" of "criminal conduct" facing the nation.  So grave is this menace that the FBI has marshaled the National Threat Operations Center (NTOC), the DOJ's Criminal Division, National Security Division, Civil Rights Division, the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, the FBI, the Community Relations Service, and the Office of Justice Programs.  What's provoked such a massive federal response?  Is it the mass infiltration of our southern borders, Cartel criminal enterprises, child-sex traffickers, Antifa-inspired riots in our inner cities, or the biggest jump in American homicide rates in 60 years?  Sorry, but none of these actual woes are considered sufficiently serious for such sweeping federal action.  It's taken something far more ominous:  parents of school-aged children.  Specifically, the DOJ is worried about vocal parents at school board meetings upset over critical race theory (CRT) indoctrination being imposed on their kids in public schools.

Chomsky: Starve The Unvaxxed Into Submission.  Leftist intellectual Noam Chomsky in a recent interview endorsed segregating the unvaccinated from society and denying them food in a neo-Bolshevik Holodomor 2.0 strategy to starve them into submission.  "Such people have to be — they should have the decency to remove themselves from the community, if they refuse to do that, then measures have to be taken to safeguard the community from them," Chomsky told the Primo Radical YouTube show over the weekend.  "Then comes the practical question that you asked:  How can we get food to them?  Well, that's actually their problem."   "Of course, if they really become destitute then yes you have to move in with some measure to secure their survival, just as you do with people in jail," Chomsky said.

No matter what the public wants, crises typically leave the state more powerful.  Americans who notice an increase in the size and intrusiveness of government since COVID-19 first appeared in headlines may wonder whether this will be a permanent condition.  The short answer:  probably.  History suggests that we're unlikely to see government fully return to its preexisting constraints even after everybody agrees the pandemic has passed along with whatever debatable need there might have been for officials to expand their reach.  But that lingering inflation of state power will continue over the objections of a public that has lost its taste for an activist state. [...] In 2020, as politicians warned that we faced death by this new disease unless we shuttered businesses, sheltered indoors, and avoided one another, a rare majority of 54 percent thought government should take on a more active role.  The only other time Gallup has registered a popular preference for bigger government was 20 years ago, which is a hint at the dynamic that's at play. [...] That surge in trust in government resulted in the Patriot Act and the Transportation Security Administration.  Which is to say, the public was quickly disabused of the notion that the state was worthy of such trust.

The Pandemic in Perpetuity.  [Scroll down]  But in the context of the pandemic, many of the justifications for lockdowns and mandates contain the seeds of something darker.  Rather than a coherent vision of the scope and purpose of political freedom, the invocations of everything from "civil liberties" to "public health" often read more like ideological window dressing for the raw assertion of power.  We have learned many things about ourselves, and one another, in the course of the past year and a half.  The coronavirus has taught us that at least some portion of our country — although it is difficult to discern exactly how much — is now distinctly uncomfortable with the kind of freedoms that Americans enjoyed before March 2020.

National School Board Association Apologizes for Its Part in Attorney General's 'Domestic Terrorist' Letter.  In this week's Congressional Oversight hearings, Attorney General Merrick Garland was asked about the infamous letter which labeled parents who express opposition to a school board's agenda as "domestic terrorists." [...] After much fallout from the letter and the testimony pointing to NSBA coordinating with the White House, the organization has issued [...] an apology. [...] While it's commendable that they reinforce the importance of a parent's role in their child's education and their right to be part of the decisions about said education, this full-throated support of parents should have been issued by NSBA months ago, especially after the mess in Loudoun County, instead of the condemnation they sent.  This is a self-inflicted wound, and something they should have been smart enough to avoid.

Where's the apology from the Attorney General?
National School Boards Association Apologizes for Letter Comparing Parents to Terrorists.  The National School Boards Association has apologized for a letter that called on the Biden administration to investigate whether alleged threats against school-board members constituted domestic terrorism.  The NSBA Board of Directors apologized in a memorandum to members on Friday.  The initial letter, sent on September 29, asked the administration to investigate whether alleged threats to school-board members, over masking policies and "propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory" in lessons, necessitated federal investigation.

The DOJ Targets Domestic Terrorists — AKA Angry Americans.  Merrick Garland is taking political weaponization of the DoJ to a whole new level.  It started with the National Association of School Boards (NASB) asking the DoJ for protection against protesting parents.  You know, those parents who have objections to making gender fluid racists out of their children.  They should know that what schools choose to teach their kids is none of their business — just ask Terry McAuliffe.  Luckily, the NASB's union backers have been paying for influence for many years.  Now they're cashing in their chits for a little consideration.  The NASB has asked that the DoJ treat misbehaving parents as domestic terrorists, with the full capabilities of the Patriot Act brought to bear.

AG Garland's testimony only begs more questions.  Why is DOJ monitoring parents?  The Attorney General insists there was nothing to be worried about because the FBI would simply be monitoring what these parents say or do at school meetings.  Promises of such "unobtrusive" investigations or operations ignore the obvious: any national enforcement or monitoring effort is, by definition, obtrusive — particularly when it comes to free speech.  Garland's testimony came after the Justice Department announced that it would initiate a national effort to "address threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff," including "open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment, and response."

Deleted Government Report Celebrates How Public Loves to "Conform".  A deleted government report exploring how to make the public alter its behavior to accept the new 'green economy' reveals how COVID-19 restrictions have created a population with a "deep set reverence" for authority and a "powerful tendency to conform."  The report was inadvertently published by the British government before being hastily pulled down, but numerous journalists were able to retrieve its contents.  The document explored how to weaponize behavioral psychology to 'nudge' the public into supporting measures and adopting behavior without them explicitly knowing they're being manipulated.  The investigation found that the same techniques the government used to force people into accepting lockdown could be used to make them change their lifestyles in the name of preventing climate change.

Democrats aim to make anyone who disagrees with them an enemy of the state.  Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-The Moon) made the Democratic position clear Thursday:  If you're not with us, you're terrorists.  During his opening statement for the Attorney General Merrick Garland hearing, Nadler said there was no difference between the rioters who stormed the Capitol on January 6 and parents who are angry about what is being taught in schools.  "This growth in extremist ideology is echoed in an epidemic of violence and intimidation directed at our health care professionals, teachers, essential workers, school board members and election workers," Nadler said.  Nadler, a partisan loon who spent the past four years stirring up every conspiracy theory against President Trump, claimed there was a "broader pattern" here, including "the growing threats of violence against public servants."

White House Knew About Letter That Compared Parents to Domestic Terrorists.  The country's largest school board association collaborated with the Biden White House before sending a controversial letter calling on the FBI to investigate parents as potential domestic terrorists, according to previously unreported emails.  The emails, obtained by Parents Defending Education through public records requests and reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, reveal that the National School Board Association's president and CEO sent the letter to Biden on Sept. 29 without approval from the organization's board.  The letter said that the acts of some parents at school board meetings across the country could be considered "a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes."  The emails also show that the White House asked the association for examples of threats against school board members days before Attorney General Merrick Garland created a task force of officials from the FBI and the Justice Department to determine how to prosecute alleged crimes at school board meetings.

The Specter of One World Government Looms Large.  The U.N.'s Agenda 2030 is still in place, and the clock is ticking toward its empowerment — only eight years and two-plus months to go.  This Agenda is for a new world government, which will implement the policies of the Agenda.  This new government on our horizon explains many of the failures in policies in these first months of the Biden administration.  The failures are based not so much on mistakes as on deliberate sabotage to weaken our country, dilute the power that undergirds our sovereignty, and prepare us to accept one world government.  The seed ideas for Agenda 2030 began with Pres.  Woodrow Wilson's League of Nations in his Fourteen Points at the end of WWI. [...] With the benefit of 20-20 hindsight, all right-thinking persons can see that Woodrow Wilson's first giant step toward globalism was rightly rejected.  The League was a complete failure in terms of bringing peace to the world.  To the German Nazi government, the League was a joke.

Chicago Mayor says police union is trying to 'induce an insurrection'.  Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot recently said the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police were trying to "induce an insurrection" by pushing back against vaccine mandates.  Au contraire.  It is Mayor Lightfoot that is trying to subvert the Constitution, take away personal autonomy and — ironically — institute a police state.  Tyrannical Democrats — and there don't appear to be many that don't fit that description today — are now accusing any group of people standing up for their inherent rights of fomenting an "insurrection."  A few hundred people walking through the Capitol wearing MAGA hats or Viking horns?  Insurrection!  A handful of parents vociferously disagreeing with a school board's attempt to shamelessly indoctrinate their kids?  Insurrection!  A union of public safety officers publicly stating that they own their own bodies?  Insurrection!  Forget to put your car license tabs on by the expiration date?  Insurrection!  For the same reasons, Democrats and their media sycophants now label anything with which they disagree "misinformation."  This is the most dangerous time in American history since the Civil War.

Judge says Chicago police union not allowed to discourage members from getting vaccinated for covid.  Cook County Circuit Judge Cecilia A. Horan has ordered Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara to stop discouraging the city's police force from taking the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "vaccine."  In Horan's opinion, Catanzara does not have any First Amendment rights when it comes to telling his police officers that getting injected might not be in their best interests.  On Oct. 15 following a lengthy emergency hearing on a request for injunctive relief that was filed by the city early in the day, Horan proclaimed that Catanzara must immediately stop trying to help police officers avoid the deadly clot shot, which stands a good chance of killing them.  Last week, Catanzara urged Chicago police officers to not comply with the city's mandate requiring them to tell the government whether or not they got injected with one of Donald "father of the vaccine" Trump's "Operation Warp Speed" injections.

'Australia going full CCP': Aussies look to crack down on bikers, require tattoos to be covered.  Western Australia, an Australian state that comprises 32.9 percent of the continent, is being compared to Nazi Germany or Communist China over a controversial new proposal to ban biker gang members from showing off their tattoos or hanging out together in public.  Set to be voted on by the Parliament of Western Australia sometime soon, the Unlawful Consorting and Prohibited Insignia Bill explicitly stipulates that biker gang members are "banned from wearing their patches and associating with one another in public."  The Sydney Morning Herald notes that a "patch" includes any type of "insignia, including tattoos."

Parents aren't Terrorists, Mr. President.  They're Americans with Something to Say.  [Scroll down]  They are not insurrectionists.  They are not terrorists.  They are parents.  All of this, CRT and its offshoots, the sheer racism of it, the arrogance of the educrats and the White House putting the federal squeeze on dissenting parents, would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.  If you had prophesized the things I'm writing about now, you'd have been considered a madman with a tin-foil hat.  But all this is certainly thinkable now, isn't it?  Because it's happening now.  And there is an effort by legacy, corporate media — which tells itself it speaks truth to power but serves as the thought guardians of the regime — to downplay what's going on at school boards.

US Civil Rights Commissioners Ask Blistering Questions About Garland Labeling Parents as 'Domestic Terrorists'.  The more I see Attorney General Merrick Garland in action the more I count America's lucky stars that the then-Senate Majority Leader kept this guy [...] away from the United States Supreme Court — which no doubt still angers the chief law enforcement official of our country.  Shudder the thought.  Before we continue, let's get one thing straight.  While the Attorney General serves at the pleasure of the president of the United States and is the chief legal counsel of the President, the Attorney General is not the president's personal lawyer nor that of the president's party; the Attorney General is the federal government's chief lawyer.  That applied to Jeff Sessions and Bill Barr under Trump — much to Trump's chagrin — and it applies to Merrick Garland, as he has admitted.  The problem being Garland is not practicing what he preaches.  And now "the rest of the story." [...]

Democrats face growing storm over IRS reporting provision.  Democrats are facing a firestorm of criticism over a proposal to increase the amount of bank account information reported to the IRS, posing a challenge as they craft their wide-ranging social spending bill.  The proposal is a top priority of the Biden administration, which argues it will help the IRS go after wealthy tax cheats.  But it has come under a barrage of attacks from banks and Republicans, who say it raises significant privacy concerns.  Financial institutions have been mobilizing their customers to speak out against the proposal to lawmakers.

School Boards and Idiots.  We were puzzled by Garland's preposterous memorandum ordering the FBI to investigate angry parents showing up at school board meetings as "domestic terrorists," but AFL, in a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, makes a credible series of factual assertions about the genesis of this outrageous order.  The AFL correctly reminds that the "Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized "parents' right to control and direct the education of their own children." They note the large, ongoing protests by parents against Critical Race Theory indoctrination, "anti-religious and anti-family gender ideology," and forced masking and online education mandates.  The genesis of the Garland memorandum in AFL's telling was an effort of Biden-supporting outfits, including the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers, to intimidate dissenting parents. [...] Inside the Department of Justice, staff raised concerns about legal and constitutional authority to interfere with parent protests.  The outside group chosen to provide a colorable nexus for interfering with those rights was the National School Boards Association, which wrote to Garland citing the Patriot Act and demanding federal aid.  Within days, on October 4, Garland made public his memorandum.

Bill Ayers, a Familiar Face in the Birth of Critical Race Theory.  After Attorney General Merrick Garland sicced the FBI on unruly parents protesting Critical Race Theory (CRT) at school board meetings, it came to light that Garland had a dog in the fight.  That dog is son-in-law Xan Tanner, co-founder of Panorama Education, a leading distributor of CRT materials.  Among the materials Panorama has recommended for educators is an essay by terrorist emeritus and Obama pal Bill Ayers. [...] What Ayers thinks would matter less were it not for his outsized influence on the educational philosophy of former president Barack Obama.  Were Obama merely a former president, his thinking would not matter much, either.  But Obama may be more than that.  Even Tucker Carlson has openly speculated that Obama is the guy running the show at the White House.  What seems clear is that Joe Biden is not.

State votes to withdraw from National School Boards Assoc. over 'domestic terror' letter.  The Pennsylvania School Boards Association is one of 11 state school boards that are officially disavowing the National School Boards Association for asking the FBI to label parents protesting educational policies at school board meetings as "domestic terrorists."  In a statement following a vote to cancel membership in the National School Boards Association, the PSBA noted that the recent letter to President Joe Biden that seemed to suggest concerned parents could be considered "domestic terrorists" was the "final straw" in the decision to exit the national school board group.

Schools Group That Urged Attorney General's Anti-Parent Initiative Has Ties to Democrats, Unions.  The National School Boards Association, which urged the Biden administration to use federal law enforcement to investigate parents who speak out on local education matters as potential domestic terrorists, has political ties to the Democratic Party and labor unions.  The national association represents members of locally elected school boards, which usually are officially nonpartisan, and is a federation of state school board associations.  Although most funding for the National School Boards Association comes from state school boards, the National Education Association — the nation's largest teachers union and a major donor to Democrat candidates — contributed in the past two years.  The teachers union contributed $68,000 to the national association in 2020 and $50,000 in 2019, according to union reports to the Labor Department.

We can't sit this out: we're dealing with a 'criminal conspiracy' to usher in global socialism.  Jeremy Isaacs' The World at War includes an interview in which Hitler's personal secretary, Traudl Junge, reports that the Führer, in his last days, replied to a question about the future of Germany as follows:  "I believe there will not any more be a National Socialist Party; the idea will die with me.  But maybe in a hundred years or so there will arise another National Socialist idea, like a religion."  It has not yet been a hundred years, but I begin to see what Hitler meant.  From the South Pacific to the North Atlantic, even democratic countries such as Australia and Canada are rapidly going full Nazi.  We've been living for eighteen months now under a "health emergency" in which rule by fiat has replaced the rule of law.  In Australia, rubber bullets are flying to suppress resistance to this perpetual state of exception.

Democrats warn of 'threat to democracy' to deceive public into accepting their tyranny.  Ever since Donald Trump announced he was running for president, Democrats have crafted the narrative that our country's democracy was under attack.  Obviously, this was meant to do nothing but emotionally trigger voters, either through fear or anger.  Yet, while they peddle this message to the public, they are doing everything they can to silence dissent — a core American value.  The most recent example of this is the Justice Department weaponizing the FBI to go after parents who have challenged school boards over what their children are learning in schools.  Attorney General Merrick Garland has ordered the FBI to work with each U.S. attorney and "convene meetings with federal, state, local, Tribal, and territorial leaders in each federal judicial district within 30 days of the issuance of this memorandum" to develop strategies to "address threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff."

Congress' Access to Individuals' Private Communications:  The Jan. 6 Committee's Troubling Precedent.  In late August, the special House committee charged with investigating the Jan. 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol took the first steps toward subpoenaing the communications records of private citizens involved in rallies to protest certification of the election, as well as Republican lawmakers whose role in the events of Jan. 6th has come into question.  The committee asked the companies to preserve these records for now.  House minority leader Kevin McCarthy reacted with outrage, tweeting:  "If these companies comply with the Democrat order to turn over private information, they are in violation of federal law and subject to losing their ability to operate in the United States."  He warned ominously that "a Republican majority will not forget."  Progressive commentators were quick to point out that McCarthy himself, by threatening reprisal against companies that cooperate with the requests, might be violating the law against obstructing congressional investigations.  But underlying McCarthy's shameful attempt to bully the companies into noncompliance is a legitimate question about the scope of Congress's authority to obtain private information.

The police and sheriffs protect us.  Or do they?  Will they?  Ostensibly democratic governments around the world have reacted shamefully to the spread of COVID, with law enforcement personnel helping them abuse their power.  What has happened in New Zealand and parts of Australia is truly frightening.  Those two formerly free and democratic nations have seen the exercise of cruel totalitarianism in the past months.  Despite the fact that lockdowns have not mitigated the spread of COVID anywhere in the world, despite the failure of mask mandates to affect the number of cases when compared to regions without mask mandates, some states in Australia and all of N.Z. have continued the most rigid restrictions, and their citizens are suffering the consequences.

Australia Building Quarantine Camps for 'Ongoing Operations'.  Despite some states tentatively beginning to lift lockdown restrictions, Australian authorities are building quarantine camps that won't be completed until next year in order to prepare for "ongoing operations" and to house those "who have not had access to vaccination."  According to ABC Australia, one such 1,000-bed quarantine facility at Wellcamp Airport outside Toowoomba will be fully completed by the end of March 2022.  "At this stage, the cabins will be used by domestic travellers returning from COVID hotspots," states the report.  However, it also makes clear that the camp will be used for "ongoing operations" and will be a source of employment for the local area.

Parents Aren't Domestic Terrorists.  It is probably an understatement to say that when one group designates another as a terrorist organization, diplomatic relations between the two become strained. [...] So it's not surprising that parent groups around the country have reacted strongly to the National School Board Association's September 29 letter to Joe Biden invoking the PATRIOT Act to combat the "domestic terrorism" of concerned parents speaking out at school board meetings. and Attorney General Merrick Garland's response.  After reading the Department of Justice letter, Asra Nomani, vice president of investigations and strategy at Parents Defending Education tweeted:  "US Attorney General issued a declaration of war on parents."  It has come to this.  There has been a declaration of war on parents.  The reason?  Parents are complaining about an education system that seems like it has declared war on their children and on the American way of life.

Large Canadian Town Bars Unvaccinated Couples From Getting Married.  After Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Government imposed one of the most restrictive vaccine mandates in the developed world, one Canadian town has taken medical tyranny to the next level by refusing to grant marriage licenses to couples that aren't fully vaccinated.  The Town of Oakville, Ontario, a small city with more than 200,000 residents, will not allow a couple to apply for a marriage license unless they both show proof of full vaccination.

Revolt of the masses:  The left has overplayed its hand.  I think the left is realizing it has a tiger by the tail.  The people are getting uppity.  Parents are assailing school boards over critical race theory and transgender madness.  So much so that the Biden Justice Department is sending out the FBI to investigate whether, as the National School Boards Association bombastically charges, some parents are guilty of "domestic terrorism and hate crimes."  Boy, it's lucky for those BLM/Antifa rioters in 2020 that they refrained from badmouthing teachers and school officials while torching the cities.  Their "peaceful protests" might have been investigated.  Meanwhile, former Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, the Clinton bag man who is running again for his old job, stated, "I'm not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions."  He added, "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach."  This stuff ticks off parents, and GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin is taking full advantage.  He is running ads accurately depicting Mr. McAuliffe as an authoritarian, anti-parent elitist.

Loudoun County schools are worse even than you imagined.  We've written before about the madness in the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS), most recently when it comes to parents protesting LGBTQ pornography in the school system's libraries.  There've also been newsworthy moments when parents spoke out about Critical Race Theory in the school district.  One of the most explosive moments occurred when the school board, tired of having angry parents (i.e., voters) yell at them, called the cops, with several arrests, including that of one man getting physically dragged out.  It now turns out that the man was protesting the fact that the school's policies led to a boy in a skirt sexually assaulting his daughter in a girl's bathroom. [...] On June 22, Scott Smith, a White plumber was filmed as the police arrested him and dragged him out of an LCPS board meeting.  It was his arrest, writes Rosiak, that the National School Boards Association cited when it sought the federal help that AG Merrick Garland so willingly gave, referred to as a possible form of "domestic terrorism."

Timeline of The Great Reset, Remaking the World Into a 1984 Dystopia.  There is an excellent timeline of The Great Reset at The Sociables.  It's very informative, complete with videos and links.  The following is simply a brief overview of the timeline.  It is worthwhile to look at the full article which traces it from The Great Reset's foundation in 2014 on, until its present incarnation.  It's 2014 and a technocrat Nazi has an idea for a great reset of the world economy.  It will work if the entire planet is in on it, Tim Hinchliffe, editor of The Sociables writes.  A pandemic could make it happen.  "The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future," Klaus Schwab, President of the World Economic Forum (WEF) said.  It took Schwab and the Davos elite about six years to watch their great reset ideology grow from a tiny Swiss seed in 2014 to a European super-flower pollinating the entire globe in 2020.

AG Merrick Garland is at war with American families.  Only a fool pokes a mama bear, but that's Merrick Garland for you.  The attorney general thought to be such a moderate that 20 Republicans confirmed his nomination turns out to be a radical ideologue hellbent on targeting President Biden's political foes.  He is injecting himself into the front lines of every culture war, from pregnant "people" to school board meetings.  But Garland's ominous memo last week directing the FBI to investigate parents as domestic terror threats was a big mistake.  He cited no evidence for what he claims is a "disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence" against school boards.  His memo was a shocking abuse of his office on behalf of left-wing activists who have been using schools as brainwashing factories for future social justice warriors.  It was designed to intimidate parents and stop them advocating for their children.

Threatening Memo From Attorney General Merrick Garland to Parents Comes With Serious Conflict of Interest.  Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a threatening memo on Monday calling on the FBI to address "violent threats against school officials and teachers."  It was an obvious shot at parents who oppose schools and school boards that promote woke ideology and critical race theory in classrooms that exploded this year.  Somehow, the story gets even worse.  [Video clip]  Fox News reported that Garland's son-in-law is the co-founder of Panorama Education, a company that works with school boards to promote "culturally responsive training" and other ideas associated with critical race theory.  According to Parents Defending Education, a nonprofit education watchdog group, Panorama received a $1.8 million contract to conduct "social and emotional learning" monitoring in Fairfax County Public Schools that collected data on students.  Asra Nomani, vice president of investigations and strategy at Parents Defending Education, tweeted out more details about the Garland connection.  [Tweet]

Victoria Police Show Up To Home To Question Man About Facebook Photo Of Him At Protest 6 Months Ago.  The lunacy never ends in Victoria.  These 2 coppers showed up at this guy's house to ask if he's the individual in the Facebook photo from a protest over months ago.  You can hear how exacerbated the man is over the absurd questioning.  The man is not accused of being violent, just the fact he might have been there half a year ago is justification enough for these cops to interrogate him.  [Video clip]

New South Wales Australia Officially Celebrates Their First Day of Apartheid with The Introduction of Two Classes of Citizens.  According to almost all Australian media today [10/10/2021] the birds are singing louder, the sun is warmer, the skies have parted and angelic music resounds from the heavens and proclaims — "Freedom Day is here".  Yes, after months of government mandated, police enforced, hibernation and strict COVID isolation, millions of formerly free citizens can open their windows and doors for the first time.  However, they step out of their homes while crossing a new threshold that can never be reversed.  They enter a new era of apartheid, as only vaccinated individuals are permitted to engage in this "Freedom Day" society.  Every venue in New South Wales is under strict legal mandate and government forced compliance to ban all non-vaccinated persons from their facilities.

Garland Just Tipped Over the Dominos.  A couple of years ago, an interview in The Nation with a radical feminist explained that if you "want to dismantle capitalism" then you have to "abolish the family."  It is worth keeping that in mind as the little drama of Merrick Garland versus the parents of America unfolds.  I wrote about the attorney general's absurd but troubling memorandum shortly after it was released on October 4.  As all the world knows (but only some precincts of the world admit), Garland threatened to mobilize the entire police power of the state against parents.  Why?  Because parents across the country have suddenly woken up to the wokeness haunting their schools and poisoning the minds of their children.  The school boards, many of which are staffed by leftists, are pushing the Marxist ideology of critical race theory, virtue-signaling mask mandates, and forcing noisome gender identity politics on primary and secondary school students.

Merrick Garland's problems with his son-in-law just got worse.  Over the last few months, as COVID brought classrooms into American homes, parents learned that their children are being taught Critical Race Theory (i.e., Whites are evil; Blacks are pathetic) and magical thinking about gender, as well as being forced to wear masks that don't protect against disease, but do interfere with children's health, learning, and socialization.  Their vigorous complaints saw the National School Board Association suggest they're "domestic terrorists" and Merrick Garland answer the call.  We learned, too, that Merrick Garland's son-in-law, through his company, Panorama Education, sells CRT materials to public schools.  And yesterday, it turned out that Panorama is also spreading material calling Trump and his supporters "white supremacists."  Alexander "Xan" Tanner, a very White man, is married to Merrick Garland's daughter.  Tanner co-founded Panorama Education, which purports to provide a data platform that delves into students' psychosocial issues in order to help schools intervene in problems and improve the school climate.  In a word, it's creepy.

Education firm founded by AG Merrick Garland's son-in-law issued 'resource' for teachers that claims supporters of Donald Trump are white supremacists.  An education firm that was co-founded by the son-in-law of US Attorney General and former Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland is under fire for issuing resources that claims former President Trump's supporters are white supremacists.  Alexander 'Xan' Tanner, 30, is a founder and the president of Panorama Education, an analytical software and services company in Boston.  He married Attorney General Garland's daughter Rebecca in 2018.  Panorama recently put out a workshop which deals with systemic racism.

The True Merrick Garland.  Conservatives generally don't respect Mitch McConnell and for good reason, but he sure did this country a favor blocking Merrick Garland's Supreme Court nomination.  It turns out, the soft-spoken Attorney General carries a huge stick labeled "domestic terrorists" that he isn't afraid to wield against average Americans to deprive them of a slew of civil rights. [...] [I]nstead of fidelity to the Constitution, Garland's fidelity is to the power accorded him as America's chief law enforcement officer.  He comports himself as a rank partisan, places targets on his political enemies, and uses the full power of his office to track them down and lock them up.  His June 2021 National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism provided his DOJ with a roadmap for cracking down on constitutionally-protected speech and assembly, and the legitimate airing of grievances from a handful of individuals who rioted for a few hours on January 6th.

Exposing the Left's Border Scam Is Now a 'Hate Crime'.  Like Prohibition-era bootleggers unloading barrels of whiskey in broad daylight, the anti-borders Left has been flouting the law in public for decades as it enables a vast and profitable human trafficking operation through south Texas.  In today's gaslit, no-accountability culture, the problem isn't finding the crime, but in naming the perpetrators and exposing their motives.  Financial gain is obviously a big incentive in the immigration scam against America.  Numerous beneficiaries include the cartels that traffic the people, "charities" that get a piece of the action for moving the human cargo throughout the country, and stateside businesses that reap the benefit of cheap foreign labor.  These parties seem largely indifferent to being called out for their roles in the scam.  It comes from a confidence in knowing that, regardless of who knows what, the operation will roll on without so much as a speed bump.

DOJ Attack On Parent Protest Movement Was Pre-Arranged Ambush, Says Letter Seeking Inspector General Investigation.  If you haven't figured it out by now, the Department of Justice at the highest level up to and including Attorney General Merrick Garland, is using its enormous police power to intimidate opponents of the Biden administration by branding such opponents as domestic terrorists.  We covered Garland's intimidation tactics on July 16, 2021, and again on October 5, 2021.  That latter post concerned Garland's October 4 memo targeting parents protesting at school board meetings. [...] Garland issued a memo bringing together a law enforcement coalition to go after supposed threats to school boards from parents protesting Critical Race Theory teaching and Covid mask and vaccine mandates.  Where is the evidence of widespread or coordinated violence such that a federal and state joint national effort is needed?  In fact, where is the evidence of violence at all?  If there are isolated instances, local law enforcement is equipped and appropriate to deal with it.

Critics question Garland's school board crackdown after son-in-law revealed as social justice education kingpin.  Attorney General Merrick Garland, who earlier this week injected the FBI into the nationwide debate over far-left local school curriculums, has a son-in-law whose company has gotten rich peddling K-12 educational materials obsessed with "systemic racism," "intersectionality," and white supremacy.  Alexander "Xan" Tanner, who married Garland's daughter Rebecca in 2018, is the co-founder and president of Panorama Education, a major player in the teacher training and curriculum industry.  Panorama pushes race-focused surveys and conducts trainings on systemic oppression, white supremacy, unconscious bias, and intersectionality — all under the rubric of "Social-Emotional Learning."

Rand Paul's Warning to Americans: 'Be Afraid of Your Government'.  In the wake of Attorney General Merrick Garland's announcement that he plans to sic the FBI on concerned parents who speak out at school board meetings against critical race theory and COVID restrictions, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) blasted the Biden administration and said Americans should "be afraid of your government."  "Moms at school boards are being told that they're criminals, potential domestic terrorists, for the crime of dissent, and I think criminalizing dissent is something that we should all be appalled with," Paul told Fox News.  Garland claimed that there has been a "disturbing trend" of teachers being threatened or harassed.  PJ Media's Megan Fox looked into these allegations and concluded they're mostly bunk.  When asked what he would tell Americans concerned that they'll end up on some government list if they "say the wrong thing" at their local school board meeting, Paul didn't mince words.  "I would say be afraid.  Be afraid of your government," he responded.

Democrats/Media Deploy Same "Eliminationist Narrative" Against School Parents As They Did Against Tea Party.  Merrick Garland disgracefully weaponized DOJ/FBI and national law enforcement against parents protesting Critical Race teaching and mask mandates.  This pure political intimidation.  The mainsteam media also is running with the false claim pushed by the National School Boards Association that the protests are the "equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes."  In Rhode Island, the statewide school committee association is gathering information about protests and promising to coordinate with the FBI.  We have seen this movie before.  It's the "eliminationist narrative" used against the Tea Party and Trump supporters.  We covered the Tea Party false accusations at the time, where the media blamed every act of violence on Tea Party supporters even though such claims never had evidence and turned out to be false.

Across America, Parents Refuse To Be Intimidated By Biden's Attorney General Labeling Them Domestic Terrorists.  Local mother Stacy Langton stood before the Fairfax County School Board in a suburb of the nation's capital two weeks ago, boldly exposing explicit examples of child porn and pedophilia in library books in area schools, available to children as young as 12 years old.  Langton's witness ended in mayhem because the school board failed to do something very simple:  listen to the stakeholders — and taxpayers — who are parents.  Board members rudely interrupted Langton during her two minutes of allotted speaking time and called a hasty recess, a board member later incorrectly claiming that he faced two "exorcisms" by parents praying during the meeting.  "Shame!  Shame!  Shame!" shouted parents, horrified at the cowardice of the board members.  Now, however, instead of recognizing Langton for the hero that she is for protecting children, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has issued a declaration of war on America's parents.

"Militia Violent Extremists" Added To A Growing List Of 9 Violent Domestic Extremists Groups.  The absurdity of Homeland Security's creation of another 'domestic extremist group' is countered only by the mass media's pandering of anything terror related.  The FBI describes how they allegedly investigate terrorism in America by mentioning domestic extremism 5 times on their website.  "The Bureau works closely with its partners to neutralize terrorist cells and operatives here in the United States, to help dismantle extremist networks worldwide, and to cut off financing and other forms of support provided to foreign terrorist organizations."  The word extremist, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, means "someone who has beliefs that most people think are unreasonable and unacceptable."  Merriam Webster defines extremist as a "belief in and support for ideas that are very far from what most people consider correct or reasonable."  This fits in nicely with the FBI's term "Black Identity Extremism" which they used until the BLM protests of 2020, when they were forced to appear to be politically correct and change their terminology.

DeSantis Throws Down the Gauntlet:  Confronts Garland on Troubling FBI Announcement.  Attorney General Merrick Garland made a stunning announcement about having the FBI and U.S. Attorneys' Offices coordinate with federal, state, and local law enforcement to deal with "threats" of violence against school boards and people working in schools.  This immediately prompted cries from critics that Garland was trying to suppress people objecting to pandemic restrictions and CRT — two of the hot button issues that have caused many people to come out and object at school board meetings.  While Garland spoke about "threats," he didn't identify any threats or concerns which would qualify as federal criminal action requiring such interference in the parents' rights to express themselves.  Indeed, the announcement seemed like an effort to basically chill their rights to speak.  Normally, if there was any actual "threat," it would come within the purview of local law enforcement.

White House Weaponizes DOJ Against Parents.  Attorney General Merrick Garland has issued a memorandum instructing the FBI and U.S. attorney's offices "to convene meetings with federal, state, local, Tribal, and territorial leaders in each federal judicial district" in order to discuss "threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff."  What threats?  Well, that isn't clear.  Garland's creepy memo makes a vague reference to "a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence" that seem to have occurred primarily in the fevered imagination of Viola M. Garcia, president of the NSBA and author of a bizarre 6-page letter written to our president requesting a joint review by no fewer than five federal agencies: [...] Oddly, considering its length, this missive cites a surprisingly small number of minor incidents that few reasonable people would consider sinister enough to justify an intervention by the Department of Justice.  In reality, most of the abusive behavior in school board meetings is directed at parents.  School boards routinely mute parent microphones during public meetings and abruptly halt meetings to prevent parents from speaking.  In one case, an entire school board had to resign after mocking parents during a virtual meeting.  This notion that parents are getting above themselves by speaking out at school board meetings is, not coincidentally, all too similar to the position adopted by the big teachers' unions.

AG Merrick Garland's Daughter [is] Married to [the] Co-Founder of [a] Company Selling Critical Race Theory Resource Material to School Districts.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland recently instructed the FBI to begin investigating parents who confront school board administrators over Critical Race Theory indoctrination material.  The U.S. Department of Justice issued a memorandum to the FBI instructing them to initiate investigations of any parent attending a local school board meeting who might be viewed as confrontational, intimidating or harassing.  Attorney General Merrick Garland's daughter is Rebecca Garland.  In 2018 Rebecca Garland married Xan Tanner.  Mr. Xan Tanner is the current co-founder of a controversial education service company called Panorama Education.  Panorama Education is the "social learning" resource material provider to school districts and teachers that teach Critical Race Theory.

DOJ creates task force to silence parents critical of public school boards.  The Department of Justice announced a directive to potentially influence the ability of parents to exercise their First Amendment rights.  Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the DOJ's new order in a statement on Monday [10/4/2021].  The agency cited an alleged increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence made against school board members and teachers by parents in public schools nationwide.  This comes after the National School Boards Association claimed in a letter to the White House public schools and their staff were in "immediate danger."  "Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation's core values," Garland expressed in the released statement.  "Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety."

'This is what a domestic terrorist looks like?' Parents slam FBI in CRT-foe crackdown.  Parents and politicians are slamming the Department of Justice's decision to bring in the FBI to investigate a spike in "threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff," saying the Biden administration is likening their protests of "woke" policies such as Critical Race Theory — as well as mandatory mask wearing — to "domestic terrorism."  "Dear @TheJusticeDept Merrick Garland and @FBI Director Christopher Wray," Asra Nomani, vice president of investigations and strategy at Parents Defending Education, posted on Twitter.  "This is what a domestic terrorist looks like?  You are criminalizing parenting, and you owe the people of America a swift apology."  She sarcastically signed the missive, "'Domestic Terrorist,' Asra Nomani."  Nomani's group has been researching how school boards across the US implement "woke" ideas into curricula, such as critical race theory.  In recent months, dozens of parents have taken a stand in school board meetings against the teaching of Critical Race Theory in classrooms and to protest mask mandates, causing some to wonder what the FBI and DOJ are actually investigating.

Merrick Garland threatens America's parents.  Anyone who still doubts that "moderate" Merrick Garland's Justice Department is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the far left should check out the news that Garland has threatened to investigate and prosecute parents who vigorously protest against school boards and teachers intent on indoctrinating school children in the racist, anti-American teachings of Critical Race Theory.  Garland did so through this memorandum.  Garland claims that free-speech principles must yield when they represent "efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views."  Andy McCarthy notes an implicit exception if the individuals happen to be Sen. Sinema or Sen. Manchin.  The implicit exception is broader.  It extends to Republican officials, whom Maxine Waters urged her followers to intimidate in public.  And it extends to conservative college students and the speakers they invite to campus only to be shouted down and sometimes physically attacked.  (Garland's memo cites no evidence of physical attacks on school board members, much less a pattern of such attacks.)

How left-wing protesters are justified, but angry moms are 'domestic terrorists'.  When is a protester "angry and justified" and when are they a "domestic terrorist"?  It all depends on how far left they are.  This week, activists stalked Sen. Krysten Simena into a women's restroom at Arizona State University, where the senator teaches a class.  Angry that she won't vote for the Democrat's unprecedented $3.5 trillion reconciliation mega-bill, the protesters filmed her walking into a bathroom stall.  The same liberal commentators and politicians who were wringing their hands over "civility" in politics under Donald Trump suddenly had an array of justifications. [...] Which brings us to Attorney General Merrick Garland's unconscionable directive to the FBI and U.S. Attorneys' Offices to investigate parents who are protesting school boards over critical race theory and mask mandates.  The National School Boards Association had asked for federal assistance for recent threats against educators, likening it to "domestic terrorism."  If parents are threatening school board members with violence, then absolutely the police should be called.  But it's not a federal case.

Attorney General Garland Abuses Power He Doesn't Have to Threaten Parents.  Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a memo on Monday directing the Department of Justice and the FBI to "launch a series of additional efforts in the coming days designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel."  The Garland memo looks like an effort to use the FBI to threaten and silence parents who are outspoken opponents of critical race theory in schools.  That alone would be a stunning partisan abuse of power.  What Garland has done, however, is even more disgraceful.  Maybe Garland doesn't actually intend to use the FBI to go after parents — maybe he knows that he doesn't have that power.  In that case, he's trying to trick parents into thinking that he does.  This tactic, he hopes, will suppress parents' free speech, and throw a bone to a powerful ally of his political party.  Even a few FBI agents questioning parents may be enough to convince others that standing up for their values is not worth the risk.

The FBI Somehow Manages to Become an Even Bigger Joke.  Yesterday, RedState reported on the disturbing announcement by the DOJ that the FBI would now be effectively treating school board protests as domestic terror threats.  The insanity of that can't be overstated.  To the extent that there's been unruliness at some local meetings, I'm unaware of a single serious threat, and even if there has been a physical altercation or two in this massive country of 330 million people, that hardly qualifies as a terrorist threat.  But the suppression of speech through intimidation is the point, and it's something we've seen repeatedly from Democrat presidents. [...] Yet, today [10/5/2021] the FBI managed to make an even bigger joke of itself.  During a hearing, Rep. Nancy Mace pressed an official who admitted that they do not even track Antifa violence.  Yet, he knew exactly how many cases involving "militias" there were.  [Tweet with video clip]  Antifa is by far the most visible domestic terrorist threat in the nation.  They run the streets of Portland and have committed overt acts of violence in cities across the country, including murder.  Yet, the FBI doesn't even see them as worthy of keeping up with?  That's an incredibly [bad] admission that confirms what a lot of us have suspected.  Namely, that the FBI seems to only care about domestic terrorism when it fits a certain mold, specifically a right-wing one.

The U.S Attorney General is siccing the FBI on disgruntled parents.  George Floyd's drug overdose while under police restraint gave the leftists populating American schools license to put their Critical Race Theory and transgender agendas on overdrive in American schools.  Parents have responded with protests at school board meetings ([Links to examples]).  In turn, school boards want to silence parents.  They've put limitations on their speech, cut their mics, and arrested them.  I'm certain that some parents have sent nasty letters or left angry phone messages. [...] But when parents are horrified by what public schools are teaching their children — Whites are inferior, kids can magically change sex, and masks forever — that's a different story.

AG Merrick Garland Orders FBI to Combat 'Threats of Violence' Against Public School Officials.  Days after a national organization representing school board officials lamented to the Biden administration about "hate groups" intimidating education officials, Attorney General Merrick Garland has directed the FBI to combat "threats of violence" against administrators.  Without citing specific cases, in a memorandum issued on Monday [10/4/2021], Merrick Garland expressed concern about a "disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation's public schools."

Biden's Justice Department Announces It Considers School Board Protests to Be Threats and Promises Action.  The struggle of parents to prevent school boards from sanctioning racial discrimination and stereotyping and imposing profoundly stupid Wuhan virus mitigation measures, like masking elementary school kids, has led to school board meetings becoming something of a battleground in the culture wars.  School board members and educrats do not like being challenged or held to account by the rubes who elected them, and so they are claiming the mantle of victimhood.  Yesterday, I posted about a letter written by the president of the National School Boards Association... yes, there is such a thing... demanding that Joe Biden use the full force of the federal government to stop parents from speaking out.

Biden's militarized executive agencies.  The Obama-Biden administration stockpiled an arsenal of high-powered weapons in the Executive Branch based on the vision of a civilian national security force.  The stockpile can outfit an army.  The Biden regime controls the trigger to the arsenal.  "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set.  We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded," Obama said on July 2, 2008.  Non-profit OpentheBooks released a comprehensive oversight report earlier this year titled "The Militarization of The U.S. Executive Agencies".  The report estimated "that there are now more federal officers with firearm authority (200,000+) than U.S. Marines (186,000)."  It's the fulfillment of Obama's well-funded prophecy.

The Militarization of The U.S. Executive Agencies.  Over the past couple of decades, the size, scope, and power of the federal government has dramatically grown.  For example, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) owns 600 guns.  There are 458 'Special Office of Inspector General Agents' within Health and Human Services (HHS) armed with sophisticated weaponry and trained by military Special Forces contractors.  The special agents at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) are equipped with machine guns and AR15s.  Even the Smithsonian Institution now employs 620-armed 'special agents,' up from zero officers (2008).  But these security forces pale in comparison to the Department of Homeland Security.  DHS owns 259,891 guns (not including the Transportation Security Administration which doesn't offer disclosure).  Why does the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) need 4,500 guns and five million rounds of ammunition?  Why did HHS purchase four million rounds over the last eight years and stockpile five submachine guns?  And what about the 800,000 rounds purchased by the Social Security Administration (SSA)?  Conservatives argue that it is hypocritical for political leaders to criticize private gun-ownership while simultaneously equipping non-military agencies with hollow-point bullets and military style equipment.  Progressives, on the other hand, have raised concerns about militarizing police agencies with tank-like vehicles and heavy weapons.  Our organization, at OpenTheBooks.com, is dedicated to bringing this information into the public square, so We The People can become a more informed electorate.

Anthony Fauci on Forced Vaccines:  "You Have to Give Up Your Individual Rights for The Greater Good of Society".  It's always right there, just below the surface.  Wait long enough and you will see it.  Obama's,"You didn't build that", is one recent example.  Hillary Clinton's, "It takes a village" is another.  Today, Anthony Fauci says you do not have "individual rights", you have collective rights and responsibilities to the greater good of society.  This vile little worm with a thirst for power is nothing more than a Fabian Socialist.

American Liberty Must Not Become Coronavirus Casualty.  When announcing his nationwide vaccine mandate, President Joe Biden declared, "This is not about freedom." But for Americans who live outside the Beltway, it is absolutely about freedom, because America is about freedom.  Yes, the coronavirus is still with us.  Yes, it is still potentially dangerous, particularly to vulnerable Americans.  But the need long since has passed for extraordinary measures such as lockdowns, mask mandates, and other restrictions on American liberty.  In a country with competent leaders, all such measures — most especially the forced vaccinations for COVID-19 recently ordered by Biden — would be repealed, and Americans would be allowed to return to their normal lives.

Biden must reject using the PATRIOT Act to suppress angry parents' opinions.  [Scroll down]  The abandonment of in-person instruction by teachers unions was very revealing.  It showed that unions are powerful organizations with no concern at all for children's education.  The learning loss they have caused has harmed schoolchildren.  On the other hand, though, a forced increase of involvement in their children's day-to-day education experience has also helped parents wake up to the inanities that certain far-left school boards are forcing upon their children.  The school boards are not happy about the scrutiny.  They have in some cases tried to keep parents out of public meetings.  They are so out of touch and so entitled that they resent being held accountable by irate parents who have started showing up at these meetings.  Parents are unhappy at having their children indoctrinated with toxic racialist ideologies such as critical race theory, which attempts to make children feel bad about the color of their skin.  They have raised the problem of pornographic materials and even child pornography that has been made available in some school libraries, supposedly in the name of tolerance for alternate lifestyles.  Some parents have also come to meetings upset about school mask mandates that have little or no scientific basis.

Australia in chaos amid corruption charges and lockdowns.  One of the more common questions that's been making the rounds lately, particularly in terms of how various countries are handling their pandemic responses, is "what [...] is happening to Australia?"  The most heavily populated states in the country have been imposing some of the harshest lockdowns and COVID restrictions in the world, with videos emerging showing police firing rubber bullets into crowds, macing elderly women, and beating people down in the streets, all for the crime of being outdoors without permission.  But now even more chaos down under is making headlines.  The main focus seems to be on the state of New South Wales, home to Sydney, the country's largest city.  Premier Gladys Berejiklian has been the author of some of the harshest COVID lockdowns and mandates anywhere and large protests have been common.  But in just the past couple of days, the NSW government has undergone a complete upheaval and it's not being driven solely by opposition to the state's COVID policies.

They Can't Win if We Won't Surrender.  The pandemic was the alarm that wakes us up before the building burns down around us.  It gave us a glimpse of a future without liberty.
  •   Autocratic orders
  •   Draconian restrictions
  •   Unequal treatment under the law
  •   Fraudulent elections
  •   Blatant disregard of the Constitution
Thankfully, COVID gave us a taste of tyranny on the cheap.  America didn't become a Cuba or Venezuela to experience it.  The pandemic has shown us how important and fragile liberty is.  I'll never take it for granted again.  I suspect a great number of patriots feel the same way.  We're seeing an awakening all across America.

Australia: Police Want No Fly Zones Over Massive Anti-Government Protests.  Police in Australia are pushing for the government to declare no-fly zones over the sites of mass protests to discourage more people from rising up and joining those already on the streets raging against the medical tyranny being imposed upon the country.  Gideon Rozner, the Director of Policy at the Institute of Public Affairs in Melbourne, documented the details to Tucker Carlson.  "The fact is the coronavirus has completely changed the relationship between government and citizenship in this country.  It has overwhelmed every check and balance in our system," Rozner urged.  "This is a radically new era we've seen in Australia," he continued, adding "The police in my home state of Victoria asked the Federal Civil Aviation Authority to declare a no-fly zone over Melbourne so commercial media outlets couldn't film the protests in case people saw how big they were and went down and joined in."

Now There are Whispers in D.C. That Biden is About to Issue Vaccine Passport Mandate for Interstate Travel.  The Biden administration is poised to make its next unconstitutional power grab in the former of a 'vaccine mandate' for interstate travel within the United States, according to reports on Capitol Hill.  Congressional Republican lawmakers are attempting to get ahead of the forthcoming expected decree by introducing legislation to block an executive order or directive.  "In a Wednesday speech on the Senate floor, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), joined by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), introduced legislation that would bar the Biden administration from implementing vaccine passports requirements for interstate travel," the Epoch Times reported.

Sen. Rick Scott Introduces Bill to Ban Vax Passports for Interstate Travel.  In a Wednesday [9/29/2021] speech on the Senate floor, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), joined by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), introduced legislation that would bar the Biden administration from implementing vaccine passports requirements for interstate travel.  Scott began by praising the Trump administration for its quick development of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine, which he noted has been very successful.  But, he continued, "government should not issue [mandates]" as President Joe Biden has done.  As localities and states join the federal government in issuing various vaccine mandates and vaccine passport requirements, Scott said that "Americans are sick and tired of the government telling them what to do.  And the American people are more than capable of making the right decision to protect them, their family, and their neighbors."

COVID-19 Detention Camps:  Are Government Round-Ups of Resistors in Our Future?  This is what we know:  the government has the means, the muscle and the motivation to detain individuals who resist its orders and do not comply with its mandates in a vast array of prisons, detention centers, and FEMA concentration camps paid for with taxpayer dollars.  It's just a matter of time.  It no longer matters what the hot-button issue might be (vaccine mandates, immigration, gun rights, abortion, same-sex marriage, healthcare, criticizing the government, protesting election results, etc.) or which party is wielding its power like a hammer.  The groundwork has already been laid.  Under the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the President and the military can detain and imprison American citizens with no access to friends, family or the courts if the government believes them to be a terrorist.  So it should come as no surprise that merely criticizing the government or objecting to a COVID-19 vaccine could get you labeled as a terrorist.  After all, it doesn't take much to be considered a terrorist anymore, especially given that the government likes to use the words "anti-government," "extremist" and "terrorist" interchangeably.

House Democrats Quietly Insert a Ten-Fold Increase in OSHA [Fines] into 3.5 Trillion Human Infrastructure Reconciliation Bill.  Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are attempting to change the OSHA fines within the section of labor law that applies directly to the mandatory COVID vaccine.  The scale of the fines is massive against any business that does not comply with the anticipated OSHA rule which is yet unannounced; and they are attempting to slip the OSHA change into the massive $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  If this OSHA change becomes law, the Biden administration will force American businesses to choose between vaccinating their employees, testing them weekly for Covid-19, or going bankrupt under crippling OSHA fines.

After a Murder Over Mask-Wearing, Authorities Are Cracking Down on COVID Skeptics on Telegram.  After a gas station cashier was killed following an argument over mask wearing, the German government started pressuring social media platforms to censor groups over what has become known as "corona misinformation."  The State of Thüringen's Interior Minister George Mair specifically called for the urgent regulation and classification of Telegram as a social network in order to foist new rules on the platform.  Currently the "Netzwerdurchsetzungsgesetz" law in Germany requires social media platforms to delete whatever the government deems as "criminal" content, and even to report them to the Federal Criminal Policy Agency (Bundeskriminalamt).  Platforms such as Telegram, however, have typically been excluded as they are not classified as social networks but as messaging platforms.  Telegram has also been under pressure in the US, for what globalist policy makers call the spread of "misinformation" and for "coordinating" the January 6 "insurrection".

Australian Man Films Massive Battalion Of Stormtroopers Marching Through The Streets For The Media, Tackle A Man For No Reason, Then Go After Him For Filming.  The dystopian nightmare gets turned up another notch in the penal colony known as Australia as this citizen filmed a large battalion of uniformed stormtroopers, complete with an armored vehicled, storm through a street for no apparent reason other than for the media.  There was no protest in this area at all so the cops must have wanted some good clips for the evening news.  They even tackled and arrested a man on the sidewalk before rushing the man filming.  The live video goes out just as they tackled him.

We're coming up on the bad part of the 'cycle of democracy'.  The cycle of democracy is attributed to Scottish economist Alexander Tytler:  ["]A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.  It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury.  From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.["]  With the restoration of Gavin Newsom to his California governorship through the failing 2021 recall process, the state cements its trajectory of collapse.

Watch As Australian Jackboot Thugs Surround And Terrorize Two Grannies Sitting On A Bench.  Dramatic footage has captured a bizarre stand-off between five police officers and two elderly women sitting on a Melbourne park bench.  The video posted to YouTube on Sunday showed the officers surrounding the two women as one of them said firmly:  "No, I'm not standing up".  [Video clip]

I guess Australia has completely given up on their tourism industry.  Even if the Covid insanity ends tomorrow, who would want to visit a country where the rulers are so heavy-handed and the police are ruthless and completely devoid of common sense?  the worst tyrants in history only needed a few dozen goons like these guys to set up a miserable situation for everyone.

Australian Brown Shirts Disgracefully Arrest Couple For Not Wearing Masks, Wife Screams And Cries In Terror.  Police arrest a couple for not wearing a mask while they walked down the beach.  This was part of the protest held along St Kilda Beach.  It appears that 16 cops performed the NO MASK arrest in Victoria Australia.  Watch how the Non-masked Media photographers are left alone.  [Video clip]

FBI Director:  Ban Encryption to Counter Domestic Extremism.  FBI Director Christopher Wray said on Sept. 21 that restrictions on encrypted chat services are needed to combat domestic terrorism — a claim that has been disputed by a wide array of tech companies, industry associations, and privacy groups, as well as other government agencies.  Wray made the remarks during the Senate Committee on Homeland Security's counterterrorism hearing.  "I can't overstate the impact of default encryption and the role it's playing, including on terrorism," Wray said in response to a question from Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) about what tools Congress can give law enforcement to counter domestic extremism.  "The information that will allow us to separate the wheat from the chaff, in terms of social media, is being able to — with lawful process — get access to those communications, where most of the meaningful discussions of the violence is occurring."

The Editor says...
[#1] If all the FBI wants to do is combat bona fide terrorists and anarchists, especially Islamic terrorists, I wish them all the best.  But recent history shows they're much more interested in right-wing rednecks than suicidal Muslims.  The FBI is mainly interested in protecting the government, not the citizens.  There's a big difference.  [#2] Just wait til you see the government's new definition of "encryption."  No, I haven't heard anything, but it's obvious that if the government bans encryption, that ban will be expanded (by changing the dictionary) to include everything from ROT13 to Base64 to the Morse Code.  U.S. citizens have the right "to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures," and sometimes my "papers and effects" include email, and sometimes my email is cryptic, if not encrypted.  Keeping my personal communications from prying eyes is the difference between a first-class letter and a postcard.  See "If you really think somebody is reading your email" on this page.  Also read the page about domestic surveillance.

FDA Employee Caught on Tape Advocating for Nazi-Like Registry for Unvaccinated, and Shooting Blacks With COVID Blow Darts.  A U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) employee was caught on tape advocating for a Nazi-like response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with forced vaccinations, and a registry for all unvaccinated Americans.  In Part Two of Project Veritas' COVID vaccine investigative series, FDA economist Taylor Lee literally called for the United States government to emulate Nazi Germany to force the COVID injections on vaccine skeptics.  "Census goes door-to-door if you don't respond.  So, we have the infrastructure to do it [forced COVID vaccinations].  I mean, it'll cost a ton of money.  But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren't vaccinated.  Although that's sounding very Germany," Lee admitted.

They Intend to Destroy America.  Perhaps the best thing about Barack Obama being elected President and serving two terms, along with Democrats' deranged reaction to Donald Trump's election is the radicals are no longer in hiding.  They are now saying out loud, in public and in broad daylight, things that nobody in Bill Clinton's administration would ever have said or admitted.  Now, we can clearly identify the enemy in plain sight, who is not just inside the gate but entrenched throughout our vital national institutions.  These radicals are not slowing down, they are "pedal to the metal" and accelerating.  Time is critical.  We must resist them at every opportunity, locally and nationally, and let them know we will not shirk our duty to stand for Freedom.

Freedom today in the US is an illusion.  [Thread reader]  We live in fear not liberty.  We self-censor/hide/give up our rights & stopped fighting because we think we won't win.  When we lose faith in our govt/elections/law enforcement/media/institutions — that's what they want.  It's easier for them.  Easier to burn it all to the ground & implement whatever is planned.  No Church?  No police?  No freedom of speech?  No choice on vaccines or anything else?  No diversity of thought?  No critical thinking?  No right to question anything deemed a "violation of community standards"?  They are counting on us to do the job for them.  That's why it's good to be disillusioned — recognizing where we are is the first step to not being deceived.  The truth is the only thing that counts.  It cannot be altered.  If we start there smarter people than me will figure it out.  But there's no white knight, no magic pill.  No one coming to save us.  No one screaming about Americans in solitary confinement who've not been convicted of a crime.  No one stopping the banks closing accounts, no one closing the border or even talking about national security.

DHS Touts Counter-Domestic Extremism Plan, But Rights Groups Fear Threats to Civil Liberties.  Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is touting a raft of new programs aimed to combat domestic extremism — many of which are raising red flags among interest groups across the political spectrum.  The new DHS plans follow a March intelligence community report that deems white supremacy and violent domestic extremism as the most dangerous terror threat to the homeland.  Mayorkas made similar statements at a Sept. 21 Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing on counterterrorism.  "Today, U.S.-based lone actors and small groups, including homegrown violent extremists and domestic violent extremists — who are inspired by a broad range of ideological motivations — pose the most significant and persistent terrorism-related threat to our country," he said.  These "broad range of ideological motivations" include "racial bias, perceived government overreach, conspiracy theories promoting violence, and false narratives about unsubstantiated fraud in the 2020 presidential election[.]"

The Editor says...
Questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election and expressing concern about government overreach have nothing to do with white supremacy.  The secretary is conflating several unrelated and irrelevant groups of people in order to crack down on our right to petition the government for a redress of grievances, among other things.  Contesting the outcome of a very fishy election is not a crime.

Trouble in Vegas — Clark County Commission Declares COVID Misinformation A Public Health Emergency.  In reality, "misinformation" and "disinformation" doesn't exist — there is just information you accept, and information you do not accept.  You were not born with the requirement to believe everything you are told.  Rather, you were born with a brain that allows you to process the information you receive.  That said, the Clark County commission in Nevada voted today to establish "COVID misinformation" as a public health emergency, clearing the way for the largest (and most notoriously corrupt) county in Nevada to create ordinances blocking any form of speech they consider adverse to their approved narrative.

The Great Reset and COVID.  The global elites' response to the pandemic and climate change is the same:  the Great Reset (GR).  Those pushing the GR are attempting to impose socialism worldwide, especially on energy production and use. [...] The government response to the pandemic was a test case in the effort to impose the GR whole cloth.  The elites tested how much freedom they could seize before people began to push back.  Instead of tracing the virus and isolating those with COVID-19, as had been done to great effect during past pandemics, the government locked down people who weren't sick "for the good of all."  As one anti-lockdown activist told Fox News, "Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people.  Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people."  If the GR comes to pass, it will be too late for people to do anything about it.  Any resistance will be castigated by sheeple on social media and in the mainstream media.  Social media will shut down the accounts of any who object and silence their voices.

The Melbourne Tinderbox and Why Americans Should Pay Attention.  An inflection point has been reached in Australia with the government COVID-19 lockdowns, forced vaccinations and now, vaccine passports. [...] Things recently came to a head when the Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, began outlining the rules and regulations for opening society back up after almost a year of total lockdown.  The always futile attempt to block the COVID-19 virus through a policy known as "COVID-ZERO" was abandoned.  The new approach is to open up society and the economy by forcing everyone to take the vaccine, and then allowing only the vaccinated to participate in the economy as varying percentages of the population are double-vaxxed, and admittedly, later, booster-vaxxed.  Vaccination passports will be required to work, shop, attend events and essentially live in the New World Order Premier Andrews has created for the citizens of Victoria.  The day after Andrews outlined the new rules — the working class, who have been locked down and compliant to this point, finally had enough.

Fauci:  Vaccine Mandates for Domestic Travel 'on the Table and Under Consideration'.  Fauci:  "I am not going to get ahead of the President.  I told others when they asked, and I will repeat it for you, that it is on the table and under consideration.  There are going to be a lot of factors going into that.  I have expressed that I would be in favor of that if the President decides to do that and if the individuals involved in advising him are in favor of doing that, I would be in favor of doing that."  [Video clip]

They Intend to Destroy America.  Nearly every network evening news and local news broadcast begins with a "COVID-19 Update" and another sales pitch to get the vaccine or to scare and shame the unvaccinated.  Government health agencies and bureaucracies focus only on vaccines of waning effectiveness, and that is killing people.  Still, they insist we must get vaccinated or we'll get lockdowns, masks, and every other mandated measure they can think of.  The installed administration is now exerting top-down control of preventative medicines and is aggressively seizing monoclonal antibody treatments from states that use them to distribute "equitably" to states that don't.  It's all meant to make us do as we are told, and it proves the long-held assertions among conservatives that socialized medicine equals rationing of medicine and care, and lets the government decide who lives or dies.  Resist.

Is America Heading Towards Authoritarianism?  The occupant of the White House is possibly senile and certainly incompetent.  He cluelessly wades from one crisis to another.  It began with the illegal immigration crisis on the Southern border where there was a mass influx of illegal immigrants.  They were then surreptitiously transferred to other states. [...] COVID-19 is being used as an excuse to infringe upon civil liberties, restrict movement, mandate masks, and mandate vaccines.  Employees in government and beyond being compelled to be vaccinated to retain employment.  School children are compelled to wear masks.  Landlords were prevented from the eviction of tenants during the pandemic. [...] There are civilians in jail for the Jan. 6 demonstrations on Capitol Hill with reports that they are in Gitmo-like conditions. [...] To summarize, the governing class now believes that they are the ruling class who own the power.  They look at the public as subjects who need to be permanently controlled.  They see freedom as a luxury they grant to obedient citizens rather than the right of every citizen.  They look at their opposition among the citizenry with disdain as pests who need to be crushed.

Our 'Boy Who Cried Wolf' Government.  A 74-year-old woman lies on her back, writhing in pain and clearly in distress on a blacktop road in Melbourne, Australia.  Two police officers stand over her.  Are they coming to her rescue and bringing her to her feet?  No, they're dousing her with two separate streams of pepper-spray while keeping their free hands on military batons in case the tortured septuagenarian somehow springs up in attack mode to wrestle down the pair of twenty-something jackboots "just following orders."  The woman had been participating in a freedom march against Australia's COVID-1984 insanity, but the government proved that Grandma was no match for goon squad brute force.  Forget chivalry and common sense. [...] You can't scare schoolchildren into wearing face masks for the next ten years in order to "save Granny" while getting caught clubbing and macing Granny in the street.  That contradiction just won't do.  Yet contradictions abound, and normal people are opening their eyes long enough to notice.  That's no good for the powers that be. [...] An avalanche of mendacity and treachery landing on them all at once, and the narrative engineers have real problems on their hands.  You knock Granny on the pavement and nearly kill her for "her own good," however, and the jig is up.

CDC covid camps have no plans to allow healthy people to leave.  There is a very clear pattern beginning to form with the American government's Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) agenda.  We have seen this pattern before, perhaps most recently with World War II and the infamous concentration camps where the "unclean" were sent to be "sanitized."  This time around, a scary virus from China (or Fort Detrick?) is the excuse for hauling off the "dangerous" to internment facilities where they can be "cleansed" of the virus and released back into society — or will they?  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has introduced a "Green Zone" plan that involves "shielding" certain people in "humanitarian settings" in order to protect against Chinese Virus infection.  Reading between the lines, though, reveals that there is absolutely nothing humanitarian about any of it.  The "interim" plan from the CDC, as we reported, involves relocating and isolating individuals to supposedly "stop the spread" of the Fauci Flu.  This sounds eerily similar to the Nazi propaganda back in the 1930s.

We Are in a War for America's Soul.  [Scroll down]  Ideological subversion has four stages and follows the Hegelian dialectic, a tactic long exploited by Marxists and Fascists to control people.
  •   Stage 1: Demoralization.  This is the destruction of faith in the government and society.  Believing that society is broken, systems are failing, and patriotism is evil are three key beliefs that are promoted to create guilt.  This leads to the acceptance of radical new ideas because the current structure is believed to be harmful.  Traditional Judeo-Christian morality, classical education, and American patriotism are discarded.
  •   Stage 2: Destabilization.  With the decision-making ability of Americans negatively affected through demoralization, the next step takes a foothold — destabilization of the nation's foundations.  Destabilization causes citizens to believe the worst of what they hear about their nation and form of government.  Supporters of traditional values and foundational structures in the nation are ostracized and even demonized.
  •   Stage 3: Crisis.  The altered values of Americans cut to the root of the current systems.  Upheaval presents opportunities for change.  Once a society is destabilized, it begins to collapse into chaos.  At this point, citizens want the government to provide stability.  We saw this recently as a demoralized and destabilized society responded with fear and panic when a "pandemic" faced our nation.  Americans are willingly trading civil rights and freedoms for authoritarianism and overreach that they believe will keep them safe.  Messaging in all of this is key.  The mainstream media and their tell-a-vision programming play a key role in framing the prescribed narrative as truth.
  •   Stage 4: Normalization.  The "new normal" is a term we have heard constantly lately, and it's an accurate description of what the normalization stage is all about.  When the government and societal structures have changed to restrict liberty, citizens are told the radical transformation is "the way it has to be."  Ironically, it's described as normal when it's not normal at all.  Normalization creates a new baseline for what a nation will accept, value, and promote.  The cycle is complete.
These steps are repeated over and over, bringing a greater result with each cycle until there's a controlled collapse.  America could be on the verge of collapse right now unless we collectively wake up to reality and take a stand to stop tyranny.

How States And Communities Can Fight Back Against Biden's Covid Tyranny.  A war is coming.  I have heard it argued that this war must be avoided; that it is "exactly what the establishment wants." I disagree.  I think globalists like those at the World Economic Forum certainly want enough chaos to provide cover for the implementation of their global "Reset" agenda, but they don't want a full blown rebellion.  They only want events in which the outcome is controllable or predictable — They do not want a massive organized resistance that might surprise them.  Ultimately it doesn't matter because the war is already at our doorstep.  A person has two choices:  Fight or be enslaved.  There is no third option.  There is no walking away.  There is no hiding from it and there is no passive solution to it.  Joe Biden's recent declaration of a federal level nationwide vaccine mandate has all but ensured that conflict is inevitable.  Why?  Because it is the first major step towards a two-tier society in which the unvaxxed are cut out of the economy.  The next step?  Forced vaccinations under threat of fines and imprisonment, the threat of confiscation of one's children, or vaccination at the barrel of a gun.

Today's blacklisted Americans:  Any tenant not vaccinated in Florida apartment complex.  They're coming for you next:  A Florida landlord is now demanding that any future tenant show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or they will be turned away, and any present unvaccinated tenant move when their lease expires.  ["]If you're not vaccinated for COVID-19, you can forget about moving into any of eight apartment complexes in Broward and Miami-Dade counties owned by Santiago A. Alvarez and his family.  And if you're still unvaccinated when it comes time to renew your lease, you'll have to find someplace else to live.["]

It's Time to Fight.  Using four of our own civilian airliners against us, the 9/11 hijackers were able to cause us great, but temporary harm.  Our response to those attacks — I'm speaking here of the so-called PATRIOT Act, forever wars, and our own intel agencies, weaponized against us — have hurt us far more than any hijacker ever could.  All that was just in the first ten years.  Since then, social media giants have gained a stranglehold on internet traffic — and which voices will be allowed to be heard.  Worse, Big Tech is working hand-in-hand with Washington to foster neverending COVID panic.  Their goal is to make the American people willing to accept a permanent curtailment of our liberties.

Something Else [is] Missing.  On September 9th, President Joe Biden made the announcement that all employers with more than 100 employees would be required to enforce a worker vaccine mandate. [...] Almost a week later, and that's the sum total of everything about the biggest economic and workforce disruption in the history of the nation.  That one paragraph posted on September 10th.  Why is this important?  Well, the U.S. Department of Labor website has ZERO mentions of this national mandate.  ZERO, nothing, nada, zilch.  Looking at the OSHA COVID information portal, used by employers and legal execs, will show you the exact same result.  Nothing.  Notice there's no date for DoL or OSHA delivery of any employer guidance or details.  Nothing.  Think about this.  This is the largest nationwide change to employment eligibility requirement in U.S. history.  Nothing else is even close; and yet, if you didn't watch the Biden announcement or read the media discussion about the Biden announcement, you wouldn't be able to find a single detail about it — anywhere.  This is not normal; not even close to normal, even for the federal government.

The Masking of the Servant Class:  Ugly COVID Images From the Met Gala Are Now Commonplace.  From the start of the pandemic, political elites have been repeatedly caught exempting themselves from the restrictive rules they impose on the lives of those over whom they rule.  Governors, mayors, ministers and Speakers of the House have been filmed violating their own COVID protocols in order to dine with their closest lobbyist-friends, enjoy a coddled hair styling in chic salons, or unwind after signing new lockdown and quarantine orders by sneaking away for a weekend getaway with the family. [...] But as is so often the case, the most disturbing aspects of elite behavior are found not in what they have prohibited but rather in what they have decided is permissible.  When it comes to mask mandates, it is now commonplace to see two distinct classes of people:  those who remain maskless as they are served, and those they employ as their servants who must have their faces covered at all times.  Prior to the COVID pandemic, it was difficult to imagine how the enormous chasm between the lives of cultural and political elites and everyone else could be made any larger, yet the pandemic generated a new form of crude cultural segregation:  a series of protocols which ensure that maskless elites need not ever cast eyes upon the faces of their servant class.

The Supreme Court Needs To Stop Unelected Bureaucrats From Making Up Laws.  A new Supreme Court brings new hope to reeling in unchecked federal power.  For the last few decades, the Supreme Court has allowed Congress to delegate unchecked power to unelected agency officials, who are mainly part of the executive branch.  The executive branch has thus legislated through unelected officials and latched onto powers not granted to them via the Constitution.  The most recent example is President Joe Biden's mandate that large employers require their workers to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly.  The executive branch plays a far more significant role in our everyday lives than the Founding Fathers intended.  Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution prescribes that all legislative power lies with Congress.  Why then, has the executive played such a significant role in creating law in recent history?  For example, Biden announced he will look into having the Department of Education, an executive agency, mandate masks for all school children, despite kids facing almost zero risk from Covid-19.

I See Free Speech Disappearing Before Our Very Eyes.  [Scroll down]  But now we have a new and devilish threat:  To understand it, we must know that the USA's founding document is the Constitution.  It is a uniquely perfect document, allowing for the maximum of self-government and self-discipline in a world of confusing and aggressive men and women who do not always agree, often function with hatred in their hearts, and sometimes do not wish well for our nation.  But the Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights, allows us to function anyway, even with all of these shortcomings and dangers.  If the citizenry can be allowed to self-govern, the nation can work.  If the rights of Americans to speak freely, to worship, to petition for a redress of grievances, can be preserved, the nation will survive and flourish.  It was to demolish that framework towards which Al Qaeda worked.  Again, Al Qaeda did not succeed.  But now we have an alliance between the almighty Big Tech Internet companies of this country and the Democrat regime of this country.  Together, they have done the unthinkable: they have hit the citizens with overwhelmingly potent restrictions on free speech.  They have taken away free speech from a man whom they hate — Donald Trump — and preserved it for the most wicked terrorists on the planet:  Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and their friends.

When it comes to vaccine mandates, Biden is counting on OSHA.  On his first day as in the White House, Joe Biden signed an executive order giving OSHA broad power to regulate health and safety in the workplace, particularly regarding COVID-19.  At the time, it was thought that OSHA would enforce face coverings in the workplace.  On Thursday, President Biden announced that companies with more than 100 employees are required to make certain that all employees are vaccinated or have a weekly negative COVID test.  This broad power may indeed be unconstitutional, but OSHA is ideally suited to try to enforce the mandate.  Most people know that OSHA creates detailed rules governing workplaces.  These rules have been enforced using intrusively detailed onsite inspections.  A COVID vaccination rule under this model would be quite difficult to enforce in person.  However, the way OSHA enforces rules has changed.  OSHA now relies on detailed reports from employers rather than onsite inspections.

MSNBC host Jonathan Capehart calls Trump supporters 'more worrisome' than the Taliban or ISIS.  On the eve of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, MSNBC host Jonathan Capehart announced that he believed that Trump supporters are more of a threat than the Taliban or ISIS.  Capehart called out 'MAGA and the domestic threat', which he said was far 'more worrisome than any foreign threat', during an appearance at PBS NewsHour on Friday [9/10/2021].  The Washington Post columnist and news host went on to describe the last several years as 'one giant step forward, and then two giant steps back.'

Lara Logan drops dynamite Fox News segment on Biden's sweeping vaccine mandates.  On Thursday, "President" Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. broke another of his promises by requiring vaccine mandates on most, but not all, American citizens.  The next day, Fox News aired a terrific seven-minute segment by Lara Logan titled "Mandate Nation," and it's really worth watching.  Ms. Logan began the show reporting on new directives to OSHA not to report on COVID vaccine side-effects.  She then segued into recent reports from the U.K. and Israel that report on serious problems with the vaccines.  One feature of the segment that conservatives will appreciate is the montages from other channels, like MSNBC and CNN.  Their "commentators" are so crazed that it's surreal.  These un-American fools actually think Biden "didn't go far enough."  The Biden Mandates are a civil rights issue, and they should appall lovers of freedom.  [Video clip]

Do Your Duty as an American and Do Not Comply.  We live in a time where politicians seem to believe that they are the ultimate authority in the United States and that with a wave of their hand and a scratch of their pen, they can enact unassailable dictates that you have to follow.  This is so far from the truth that you could fit a solar system between them.  There are many laws in the land, with different states containing different laws to follow.  But, the supreme laws are the ones enshrined in the Constitution.  If any laws are issued that conflict with this supreme law of the land, then those laws are invalid and do not have to be followed.  This isn't just the opinion of a freedom-loving American with a penchant for bucking authority, it's also the opinion of the Supreme Court.

Whom Do We Trust?  [Scroll down]  America was founded by those who lost trust in their mother country.  Our Constitution was unique in that it mistrusted the very institutions of governing, with checks and balances codified for the citizens' protection.  It would be wonderful if we could trust the people we charge with our care, but experience reminds us that we can't. [...] The politicians currently in power seek to dismantle the Constitution for America's own good.  They ask us to trust them while most things they do smack of dishonesty.  Their "Noble Lies" are justifiable as a means of achieving their endgame, but their lust for power is the only truth we recognize as true.

Where Are They Trying to Take Us?  [Scroll down]  Think about the larger Green New Deal (goals and objectives), and then contrast those objectives while aligning an overlay map of how federal COVID mitigation rules can be applied as a back door to the EXACT SAME objective.  Far beyond masks and even vaccines:  workspaces being forced to be redesigned.  New rules on labor density.  New rules on labor/manufacturing and office proximity.  New rules on uniforms.  New rules on hand-washing stations.  New rules on sick pay, shift hours, time-off when a COVID infection is detected in the workplace.  Think about everything from rules on surfaces, to rules on packaging, to rules on ALL business operations as an outcome of federal regulatory policy under the guise of CVOID-19 mitigation.  OSHA, Labor, Agriculture, Transportation, Energy, Education, Housing, Health and Human Services, and even federal building permits:  the entire regulatory system and compliance network.  Think about Housing and Urban Development (HUD) having new rules about dwellings and complexes for housing grants.  Population density; the need to move into the suburbs and the confiscation of private property to "ensure the common safety" of the citizens.

Turley says Ron Klain's vaccine retweet is legal issue for Biden: 'Breathtakingly daft'.  Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley called White House chief of staff Ron Klain's recent retweet appearing to praise the Biden administration for executing the "ultimate work-around" for President Biden's recent vaccine mandate "breathtakingly daft."  "The retweet was breathtakingly daft on the eve of litigation over the order.  It is reminiscent of President Biden admitting that his own White House counsel and their preferred legal experts all said that the eviction moratorium extension was likely unconstitutional," Turley told Fox News on Friday [9/10/2021].  "Courts will now be asked to ignore the admission and uphold a self-admitted evasion of constitutional limits," Turley added.  The "problem is that the thing being 'worked around' is the Constitution."

Against Biden's Mandates.  We oppose President Biden's lawless and authoritarian new mandates announced yesterday.  We also denounce his divisive rhetoric toward unvaccinated Americans, his reckless antipathy for federalism, and his threats to usurp state governors.  Contra Mr. Biden, this is entirely about freedom and personal choice.  His proposed executive orders represent nothing less than centralized tyranny, whereby the federal government operates under no legal constraints.  This is government anarchy.  The announced policies — including mandated vaccines for private employers of a certain size, mandated vaccines for all healthcare workers, and mandated vaccines for federal employees — are wildly extraconstitutional and far beyond any executive power imagined in the Constitution.  Of course, the same is true for OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), which (since its magical creation in 1971) laughably claims jurisdiction over working conditions across millions of private US businesses operating on private property.  OSHA is the bludgeon Mr. Biden intends to use against business owners to dictate their arrangements with employees by requiring covid vaccines.

One Line From Biden's Vaccine Mandate Speech Should Make 'Free People' Very Uncomfortable.  During his speech announcing expansive new vaccine mandates on Thursday, President Biden took aim at Republican governors who have continued to value freedom in their responses to Covid-19, threatening to use his "powers" to "get them out."  After blasting the nearly 80 million Americans who have not gotten vaccinated, the president turned his ire to GOP governors, particularly Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.  "To make matters worse, there are elected officials actively working to undermine the fight against COVID-19," he said.  "Instead of encouraging people to get vaccinated and mask up, they're ordering mobile morgues for the unvaccinated dying from COVID in their communities.

Biden's Vaccine Mandate Has Nothing To Do With Fighting COVID.  A mandate to fight COVID-19, protests erupted.  And rightly so.  But the real reason Biden chose now to announce it is so he could claim credit for what is already happening with COVID.  In what is almost certainly a vast overreach of his executive authority, Biden declared that he'd develop "an emergency rule to require all employers with 100 or more employees, that together employ over 80 million workers, to ensure their work forces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week."  Of course, this mandate will raise constitutional challenges.  Which is no doubt what Biden wants.  After all, if such a move is constitutional — and there are [sic] no shortage of "experts" who say that it is — then [we're in trouble].  Because that would open the door to federal intervention into our daily lives on an unprecedented scale.  All that would be needed is to declare something, anything an "emergency."

Joe Biden Threatens the Unvaccinated and Announces His Unconstitutional Vaccine Mandate in Disturbing, Dictatorial Speech.  Today [9/9/2021], Joe Biden took to the podium and officially announced a vaccine mandate from the federal level hitting all private businesses with over 100 employees.  In making that announcement, he trashed the unvaccinated, threatened them, and generally stoked the flames of division in such a way that should worry everyone.  He also asserted himself as a dictatorial figure, able to push governors "out the way" who push back on his tyrannical orders.  I'll go ahead and say it before we get into the clips:  This is the most disturbing speech I've ever heard from a president.  [Video clip]  Here's the president trashing the unvaccinated in a way that sounds like he's trying to foment a civil war, and no, I'm not kidding.  It's that bad, with him repeatedly talking about anger toward the unvaccinated and blaming them for all of society's ills.  [Video clip]  Later in the speech, he went at the unvaccinated again in threatening fashion.  I was almost in disbelief at his tone and word choice.

Are We Supposed to Not Care When a Senator Wants to Ban Books?  Because the Press Does Not See a Problem.  If you were to make a proposal that a politician should go about calling to take down published works, the initial reaction from many would be to recoil and issue a rebuke.  The concept of the government seeking to silence select individuals runs contrary to our core beliefs.  Yet we have a politician currently calling to take that very action, and the response is so vacant that you have to wonder how far we as a nation have drifted.

National Archives Slaps 'Harmful Content' Warning On Constitution, All Other Founding Documents.  The National Archives Records Administration placed a "harmful content" warning on the Constitution, labeling the governing document of the United States as "harmful or difficult to view."  The warning applies to all documents across the Archives' cataloged website, including the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.  "NARA's records span the history of the United States, and it is our charge to preserve and make available these historical records," the administration said in a statement.  "As a result, some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions.  In addition, some of the materials may relate to violent or graphic events and are preserved for their historical significance."

How to Tell What the Government Fears Most.  Every interaction between government and citizen today tests how far individual liberty may be diminished before the public pushes back.  Should authorities have had the power to close businesses and prohibit public gatherings in the name of health?  What if the risk to the public's health is less than one percent?  What if the risk is merely one hundredth of one percent?  If government can interfere with liberty whenever there is any degree of risk, can there be any degree of liberty?  If government can make you afraid of something — imaginary or not — may it then control your life completely in order to guarantee FDR's "freedom from fear"?  Does depending on government to ensure "freedom from fear" not incentivize government to invent new fears that only additional government powers can vanquish?  Does this not subsidize fear with taxpayer dollars and guarantee that government will always strive to make citizens afraid?  Can it really be true that individual liberty should be "allowed" to exist only when there is nothing that can hurt us?

Left Doesn't Just Want to Censor You on Social Media.  It Also Wants to Close Your Bank Accounts.  It is becoming increasingly clear that political leaders on the left and Big Tech are joining arms to not just deplatform dissident voices from social media, but to bar them from the digital space entirely, including from having the ability to make and receive payments online.  In the latest example, Chase Bank reportedly planned to close the credit card account of former national security adviser Michael Flynn on Sept. 18, stating that "continuing the relationship creates possible reputational risk to our company."  While as of Aug. 31, a Chase spokesperson said that they had "made an error and apologized for any inconvenience caused," the initial gesture can't be ignored.  This comes just a couple months after Wells Fargo made the "business decision" to close 2020 Republican Delaware Senate candidate Lauren Witzke's account.  Two of the more prominent digital payment services, PayPal and Stripe, have also become active cancel culture participants.

Reading between the lines in Australia.  [Video clip]

South Australia Directorate Releases New Cell Phone COVID App to Monitor Quarantine Compliance.  People wonder why they should be paying attention to what happens in Australia.  Well, quite simply, if you can identify where the test facility is for technology to merge with totalitarian objectives, it becomes valuable to follow what they do — and then predict what the future might look like for you.  Australia and New Zealand are testing the parameters of merging the objectives of the control state with technology and citizen compliance.  A year ago, the leftists in U.S. media were cheering the COVID responsibility of Kiwis and Aussies.  However, things are starting to take a very dark turn now.  Even the ultra-far-left Atlantic Magazine is starting to become aware, and what they are seeing is becoming worrisome.

Australian state begins use of app that dispatches police if you don't prove your location with selfie within 15 minutes of random check.  Australia has transformed itself from a free society to a police state, using the Covid epidemic [as] an excuse.  Already, the country has all but forbidden international travel, blocking not just the arrival of foreigners (and Australian citizens), but the departure of any of its citizens.  Since it is an island continent, no Berlin Wall has been necessary, but that would presumably not be out of the question where the geography otherwise.

The Masked Ball of Cowardice.  [Scroll down]  Likewise, in October 2020, the WHO's peer-reviewed bulletin showed COVID-19's overall IFR across all age groups to be about 0.23%.  John Ioannidis, the world's most-cited physician, believes the IFR (infection fatality rate) to be lower and published his own peer-reviewed study showing the overall IFR to be about 0.15%.  But in a poll conducted by the Menzies Research Centre, by June 2021 Australians on average estimated their chance of dying if they contracted the virus to be 38%, an overestimation of more than 160-fold.  For the public to be so egregiously misinformed about their actual risk from COVID-19 renders democratic accountability for lockdown measures impossible.  Even more so because, as a study by Cardiff University demonstrated, the primary factor by which citizens judge the threat of COVID-19 is their own government's decision to employ drastic lockdown measures.  "We found that people judge the severity of the COVID-19 threat based on the fact the government imposed a lockdown — in other words, they thought, 'it must be bad if government's taking such drastic measures.'  We also found that the more they judged the risk in this way, the more they supported lockdown."  The policies thus create a feedback loop in which the measures themselves sow the fear that makes citizens to believe their risk of dying from COVID-19 is hundreds of times greater than it really is, which in turn causes them to support more lockdown measures.

Beyond Orwell:  CDC Releases 'Guiding Principles for Inclusive Communication'.  The Centers for Disease Control is once again involving itself in an aspect of American life which is absolutely none of its business.  We have watched as the CDC inserted itself in everything from the eviction moratorium to the Superbowl.  Now they want to control your language.  They just released an exhaustive list of words you shouldn't use, in the name of health equity, whatever that is.  Topics include drug abuse, healthcare, homelessness, economic status, immigration, race, sexual orientation, and more.

We hate our government.  A $35K fine for sixty people who gathered in an "illegal" church worship in Sydney.  A group of rescue dogs that were shot by a local council so that rescue center staff would not travel to pick them up under the guise of Covid restrictions.  Police firing rubber bullets at lockdown protestors.  Despotic state premiers refusing the prime minister's call to reopen once 80% vaccination rates are achieved.  Homes of Covid sufferers in South Australia to be marked so that their neighbors can rat them out to police if they breach tyrannical stay at home orders.  Celebrities offered cash payments by government to promote the pro-vaccine propaganda line.  The military ordered onto Sydney streets.  Why are we surprised?  Did anyone think during a plague crisis, real or imagined, that our government would react in any way other than the most stupid, ineffective and damaging?  Look at their prior form over the last sixty years.  At all levels of government, from the federal to the state and to local councils, the results speak for themselves.  A consistent rate of public failure.  And underneath all, a foundation of endemic corruption.

More than a thousand anti-vaxxers march on New York City streets to protest de Blasio's vaccine mandate.  Over 1,000 people flooded New York City streets again to protest the COVID-19 vaccine mandate and then gathered in Columbus Circle where speakers fired up the crowd.  One woman said, 'This is a war call.  This is a fight.  Leave here and do something ... Fight for your rights.'  While the demonstration unfolded Saturday afternoon, Mayor Bill di Blasio's tweeted pictures from Harlem and praised the faith community Hope of Harlem's work at COVID-19 community outreach.  The protest is in reaction to the new requirement for people ages 12 and older to show proof they've received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to get into restaurants or bars, gyms and indoor entertainment such as movies and theaters.  The new mandate — dubbed 'Key to NYC' — went into effect August 17.

The Editor says...
"Key to NYC" implies that you're locked out of the city without the key.  That's not what one should expect to find in a free country.

Woke Soldier Eager to Shoot Americans.  Immediately upon taking his position, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin proclaimed a military stand-down for an ideological purge of those who may not be on board with the authoritarian left's fundamental transformation of America.  The purpose was to finish the work begun by Obama's purge of the officer corps.  If Democrats succeed, the only people left in the military will sound like this sergeant:  [Tweet]  Democrats openly push an agenda likely to lead to another civil war (e.g., seizing unconstitutional federal control of elections to reduce them to farces, packing the Supreme Court).  They do this because they expect to win, since they control the military and have been systematically subverting it.  A victory would allow them to move directly to a postconstitutional Marxist system of government, with those deemed likely to resist incarcerated in gulags.  The humiliating defeat in Afghanistan has taught them nothing about asymmetrical warfare.

'Woke' US soldier threatens Americans, says they 'become the enemy' if they don't obey under martial law.  A video clip of a female U.S. Army soldier who appeared to threaten to shoot American citizens if martial law is ever declared and they refuse to comply with orders has gone viral on social media and triggered widespread backlash.  The clip went viral thanks to Jeremy Darling, a black conservative who posted a snippet of the larger clip to his own TikTok and added his own commentary, warning that the soldier's words "should be cause for concern."  The soldier's words were as follows:  "Understand that if active-duty military actually get deployed within the United States, that weapon is not just pointed at other people, other countries.  It's pointed at you.  If you do not get in your house when I tell you to, you become the enemy.  Martial law."  It's like that, huh?  [Video clip]  Who is this woman?  An investigation revealed that she's a 35-year-old self-identified "lesbian" who goes by the pronouns "she/her."

Active Duty and Retired Navy Members Are Being Told They Cannot "Disrespect" Biden Over Afghanistan Debacle.  Communications from top leadership at the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) shows them instructing active duty and retired service members that they are forbidden from criticizing Joe Biden for his utter incompetence that led to the crisis in Afghanistan.  In an email that was uncovered by the Daily Wire, the Naval Intelligence Chief of staff, Captain Scott Chesbrough, gave current and former members of the Navy a reminder to follow the uniform code that prohibits them from disrespecting senior government leadership, especially if it comes to feeble Ol'-Joe.

An Awfully Convenient Ruse for an Inconvenient Truth.  Imagine being told not to worry about a future without savings because a government-created welfare system would provide retirement funds for all.  Imagine being conned into believing that Social Security is a personal investment that a worker is individually contributing for his own future, only to learn that most workers will never get back what they gave into the system.  Imagine that health care costs have skyrocketed for half a century because a largely unnecessary system of health insurance artificially raised the cost of medical care until only those with insurance could afford care at all.  Imagine being told once again not to worry because the government will interject itself into the doctor-patient relationship permanently by regulating the practice of medicine, subsidizing government-preferred outcomes, rationing treatments, and using tax dollars to pay for now much more expensive health care for anyone in need.

Nancy Pelosi, Bennie Thompson and J6 Committee Start Fishing Expedition — Seeking All Communication From Political Opposition.  Anyone who has followed politics for any amount of time knows the Nancy Pelosi "January 6th Committee" is an opposition research effort under the guise of a House investigation.  The goal is to frame an extremist narrative favorable for the Democrats in the 2022 mid-term election.  That is the entire goal.  What the Mueller probe was to President Trump, the J6 Committee is to the MAGA movement.  Everyone [...] in Washington DC knew Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel for one reason, to target President Trump, weaken his administration and ultimately remove him from office.  Not a single entity in DC did not know that was the goal.  The same is true here.  Everyone in DC knows Nancy Pelosi's J6 committee is intended to target Democrat political opposition.  That is the goal.  That is ONLY the goal.  Not a single entity in DC does not know that is the goal.

Question the Narrative of the Ruling Party.  This incompetent regime couldn't execute a war and withdrawal against real terrorists in Afghanistan, handing over billions of dollars in weapons to them.  But it thinks that people who question arbitrary mask mandates, potential vaccine passports, and have legitimate questions about the 2020 elections are the real terrorists.  The latest Department of Homeland Security bulletin is a prime example of how this administration twists the thoughts and fears of half of the U.S. population into a warning of potential violence.  Conveniently, they neglected to mention any heightened threats of violence as a result of actions taken by organizations like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  No, the real threat is people who are tired of wearing masks and question the legitimacy of an extremely suspect presidential election.  The last line in the DHS bulletin warns readers:  "Such threats are also exacerbated by impacts of the ongoing global pandemic, including grievances over public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions."  Let's be clear:  the DHS bulletin wasn't a bulletin; it was a threat, as in a read-between-the-lines threat.

George W. Bush's CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden calls Trump supporters 'our Taliban'.  A retired top US military general and former CIA chief sparked outrage over the weekend by comparing supporters of former President Donald Trump to the Taliban and calling a suggestion to send 'the MAGA wearing unvaxxed' to Afghanistan a 'good idea.'  Retired four-star Air Force General Michael Hayden on Thursday [8/19/2021] retweeted a split image of armed militants in a caravan of white pickup trucks with the caption 'Their Taliban.' Under that was a picture of cars adorned with Trump 2020 and American flags along a highway.  The second image was captioned 'Our Taliban.'  On Sunday morning Hayden took another swing at the former president's fans.

Massive Unrest as Australia Adopts China's Authoritarian 'COVID-Zero' Approach.  The emergence of SARS-CoV-2 and the resulting illness, COVID-19, has caused mass hysteria on a global scale.  Perhaps no response is as shocking as what we see in Australia.  The country is included in the group of western democracies globally and among the Five Eyes intelligence community members.  Yet, the nation's response to the pandemic can only be described as authoritarian. [...] Roadblocks began in Sydney on August 15 with the military assisting.  Residents planned anti-lockdown protests in several large cities for the weekend of August 21.  When this came to the attention of law enforcement, David Elliot, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, told the public:  "If you have a loved one you believe is going to protest this weekend, you are obliged to talk them out of it.  If you know someone who attends an illegal gathering this weekend, you must call crime stoppers."  This warning did not deter the protests as thousands of Australians in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane clashed with police.  Reuters reports the arrest of hundreds of protestors and seven police officers sustained injuries.  In Melbourne, protesters broke the police lines.

Guns, Germs, and Feelz.  [Scroll down]  How fast do things go south when ordinary citizens have no effective means of defending themselves from government psychosis?  Just look at New Zealand and Australia, "free" nations with strict gun control that are currently using their militaries to enforce lockdown orders that have essentially placed everyone under house arrest "for his own good."  If people can be stripped of their liberties to live and work as they see fit for a virus that is almost entirely harmless for most people in good health, exactly what potential threat can a well armed government not use to justify enslavement?

Tyranny has Arrived In Australia.  It's getting very expensive to be a human in the former prison colony, now again a prison colony, Australia.  [Video clip]

Something shifted after the election of Barack H Obama in 2008.  [Thread reader]  Something subtle that was quietly taking place in the background that surfaced just slow enough so that most people didn't notice.  But before getting to that, let's first just look at the DHS announcement as presented in their words.  Look at this small sentence and the worldview it expresses:  "Such threats are also exacerbated by impacts of the ongoing global pandemic, including grievances over public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions."  Notice the word "perceived"?  The government imposed mandates, mask and vaccination requirements are only "perceived government restrictions."  In essence, the chains that bind your expressions of liberty and freedom are merely figments of your imagination.  The needle being forced into the arm of federal workers by the Federal Government is only the perception of a forced medical treatment.  Your perception of what they are doing is the problem.  You must therefore correct your wrong-thoughts to eliminate the wrong perception.  Yes, Dear Leader appreciates your compliance.  Your reluctance to change your perception is what identifies you as an extremist.

DHS List of Terror 'Threats' Should Raise All Kinds of Eyebrows.  Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security just issued a terror threat advisory which is raising some eyebrows.  Listen, as Lester Holt and Pete Williams describe how the "terror threat advisory" isn't based on any actual threats or plots, but just a lot of "anti-government rhetoric" that includes things like "opposition to COVID measures" like masks and vaccine measures.  [Video clip] [...] So, if there aren't any actual plots or threats, what they're really doing is demonizing free speech, as Tim Young observes, or criticism of government action.  That's a dangerous route to go down.  It also suggests that the DHS is surveilling people to some degree on this subject, another troubling thought, and definitely a slippery slope to go down.  They're also continuing to demonize Trump supporters again, by including them in the advisory that isn't based on any actual threats, with "claims of election fraud, belief Trump can be reinstated."

Fauci: Unvaccinated Need to 'Put Aside' Concerns of Personal Liberty.  Chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday [8/15/2021] on CBS's "Face the Nation" that the vaccine-hesitant should "put aside" their concerns about personal liberty and recognize the "common enemy" is the COVID-19 pandemic.  [Video clip]

Naomi Wolf:  Mandatory Vaccine Passport Could Lead To The End Of Human Liberty In The West.  Author of "The End Of America" Naomi Wolf joined FOX News Channel's Steve Hilton on "The Next Revolution" to warn about "Orwellian" outcomes of the Coronavirus pandemic.  [Transcript:] "Vaccine passport" sounds like a fine thing if you don't understand what these platforms can do.  I'm the CEO of a tech company, I understand what this platform does.  It is not about the vaccine or the virus, it is about your data.  What people need to understand is that any other functionality can be loaded onto that platform with no problem at all.  What that means is that can be merged with your Paypal account, digital currency, Microsoft is talking about merging it with payment plans, your networks can be sucked up, it geolocates you wherever you go.  All of your medical history can be included — this has already happened in Israel.

A Brief History of the Assault on Conservatives as 'Violent Extremists'.  The assault on conservative Americans began several decades ago with attacks on traditional principles and values.  Belief in individual liberty and responsibility, free enterprise, and the rule of law was willfully conflated with "right-wing extremism."  Pride in America, a desire to protect our borders, and opposition to illegal immigration was branded as xenophobic.  Championing the constitutional right to bear arms was decried as gun-crazed zealotry.  Belief in religion, natural law, and the sanctity of human life was maligned as backward and anachronistic.  This vilification of conservatives has coincided with a deliberate shift from the real threats:  radical Islamic and leftist groups.  Islamic terrorist attacks have been declared as having "nothing to do with Islam" or excused by spurious claims that the perpetrators were mentally ill or misunderstood religious doctrine.  When a military psychiatrist massacred 13 people in Fort Hood yelling 'Allahu akbar', it was dismissed as "workplace violence."  And the violence, arson, destruction of public property, and killing of citizens and police officers unleashed by Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) during the 'Summer of Love' are described as "mostly peaceful protests."

Official U.S. Government Announcement:  If You Question Govt COVID Response You are Considered A Domestic Violent Extremist.  The United States Department of Homeland Security made a quiet and alarming announcement yesterday [8/13/2021], creating the official position of the United States Government under the Joe Biden regime.  According to the statement, if you question the orthodoxy, mandates, or COVID-19 response from the U.S. government, you are now considered a "terrorist", specifically a "Domestic Violent Extremist" (DVE).  This is quite a remarkable development and seems to underpin the tenuous, unstable and fragile disposition of the current regime.  The Department of Homeland Security seems rather paranoid in their need to label anyone who would question the COVID-19 response.  More than half the country would now be defined as dissidents and domestic terrorists within their our homeland.

Socialism Is Modern Fascism.  [Scroll down]  Often, we can no longer even engage in a rational debate with a radical leftist without the latter spraying spittle into our face, flying into an apoplectic rage, and/or attempting to ruin our lives because we dare to disagree.  Biden's task is easy.  He simply has to throw his weight around to muzzle free speech and influence society's cancelation of anyone who dares to speak out and disavow ideas such as critical race theory, defund the police, or vaccine mandates.  You see it in academia, business, sports, pop culture, media.  You see it in your social and family life.  We are no longer allowed to speak our minds.  There is currently no legal ramification, though we are not far from this eventuality.  But the consequences to one's career, one's social status, one's ability to live as a free individual are just as debilitating, if not more so.  We are significantly closer to an ideologically totalitarian state than most are willing to admit.

The Agenda for Serfdom in the Land of the Free.  Agenda 21 was introduced at the U.N. Earth Summit in 1992, along with the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), as the "comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society." Together, they toll the death knell for wealth creation and economic and personal liberty, based on the fallacious assumption that development will lead to the extinction of life on Earth.  With top-down controls, they aim to end local power and vest it in a global governance system.  Environment protection is the excuse and weapon for this draconian program to fundamentally transform human lives, force citizens to surrender their liberties, and enforce socialist global control.  The agenda is political.

Mask bullies don't want to persuade you — but to humiliate and rule you.  Law professor Ann Althouse recently reproduced two memes she saw on Facebook.  One read:  "It took 'click it or ticket' to get people to wear a seatbelt.  I wonder if 'mask it or casket' might work." The other said:  "It's a face mask, not a Star of David or pink triangle, you whiny, privileged dolt.  You're not being shoved into a cattle car and taken to camp.  You're going to Walmart for twinkies and Diet Coke.  Grow up."  They're both poor efforts at persuasion, of course:  Generally, calling people names, threatening them and saying they're stupid are ineffective ways of winning them over.  Yet we're seeing more and more of this sort of thing. (And note the casual classism of invoking Walmart, Twinkies and Diet Coke.  Poor white people aren't, in fact, the least-vaccinated group — that would actually be blacks and Hispanics — but bashing working-class whites is considered perfectly decent, almost mandatory.)  Maybe the mask fanatics are just poor persuaders.  But it seems just as likely that they are engaging in poor persuasion because they aren't trying to persuade.  As with so much that goes on in today's society, and especially on social media, this sort of thing isn't aimed at convincing those who disagree, but rather at garnering high-fives from people who agree and, ultimately, creating an ideological veneer for unquestioned elite rule.

The coming Delta lockdown is DESIGNED to invoke nationwide protests so they can be exploited as a backdrop for false flag event.  Within the next 12 days, multiple sources have told us, the pretender-in-chief Joe Biden will announce a nationwide lockdown, fraudulently blaming the "delta" variant and "anti-vaxxers" for the overzealous action.  The lockdown will have no specific end date, and it is likely to be strongly resisted by red states, while blue states will effectively be turned into medical police states with brutal enforcement of the lockdown measures.  Most importantly, the new lockdown will be perceived as so overreaching and totalitarian that nationwide protests will soon commence.  This is actually all part of the plan.  The lockdown push is being engineered to invoke a backlash, even among Leftists who will join conservatives in taking to the streets to protest the medical tyranny.  This backdrop of nationwide protests is the setting needed by the deep state to stage a violent false flag event that I'm told will most likely target a medical facility or medical group of some kind.  The FBI will of course be running this just like they ran the Whitmer "kidnapping" in Michigan as well as the Jan. 6th "capitol siege" false flag operation.

Homeland Insecurity for Conservatives.  The Department of Homeland Security was created in the wake of the 9/11 attacks for the purpose of protecting America against terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda.  It was not intended to spy on ordinary Americans or track their political affiliations.  But now DHS seems to be spending as much time tracking and prosecuting "domestic terrorism" as it does foreign terrorists and actual criminals, including those gang members who are crossing our southern border every day.  That's the same border that Kamala Harris is in charge of.  An official at DHS stated in May 2021 that "domestic violent extremism poses the most lethal, persistent terrorism-related threat to our homeland today" — that in connection with a new program of monitoring extremism on public social media.  DHS is going to be collecting and analyzing social media data in an effort to identify possible threats.  That seems straightforward enough, except that one often discovers what one is looking for, and recent history suggests that government is tracking conservatives more closely than radical groups like Antifa.

Show Your Papers, New York City Announces Vaccination Passport Needed to Eat at Restaurants or Engage in Private Businesses.  Comrade rebels, effective September 13th, anyone living or visiting New York City who has not been vaccinated will be blocked from entering any private venue, restaurant or indoor facility.  Businesses will be required to operate security checkpoints, where people without proof of vaccinated status will be denied entry.  Your engagement with the system of commerce will now be controlled by the New York Ministry of COVID Compliance.

The Biden Military Witch-hunt.  A manufactured panic over the January 6 rally has provided Biden and his flunkies with an excuse to attack the U.S. military.  The Biden administration has implemented an effort to root out political "extremism" in the military in order to work toward a military with more 'diversity, equity, and inclusion', despite little evidence of any such extremists actually operating within the ranks: [...] The DoD's definition of extremism is so broad and imprecise that some retired officers and military analysts fear it could inadvertently include traditional Catholics, Republicans, and people who aren't racist or violent but simply choose conservative, pro-life politics.  For example, DoD considers "'patriot' extremism" to include any non-extreme position, such as conservative views, religious teachings such as those against abortion or LGBTQ lifestyles, and failure to actively support gay right demonstrations or mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations.  They are therefore legitimate targets for the CEWG [Countering Extremism Working Group].

Amid Union Pushback, Biden's COVID-19 Vaccine Rules Face Legal Challenge Over Coercion.  President Joe Biden touts the support of the business community for his COVID-19 vaccine policy, but leaders of organized labor, which the president identifies as his political base, aren't happy.  Requirements that both federal employees and the employees of federal contractors "attest" to their vaccination status and regularly submit to testing if not vaccinated could face a court challenge, based on the Biden administration's own employment guidelines.  The U.S. government includes about 2.1 million employees and is assisted by more than 4 million contract employees.  Larry Cosme, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, said in a formal statement:  "Forcing people to undertake a medical procedure is not the American way and is a clear civil rights violation no matter how proponents may seek to justify it."  The American Postal Workers Union also issued a statement, saying "it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent."

Australia uses helicopters and the army to enforce its 'Zero Covid' lockdown as thousands of police flood Sydney to enforce the rules.  Australia today [7/31/2021] used helicopters and the army to enforce its 'Zero Covid' lockdown, as thousands of police flooded Sydney city centre to enforce the rules and hand out $500 fines for those not wearing a mask.  Sirens blared across the city and a draconian message was broadcast from the skies, as millions were told:  'This is public health order — do not break rules — you will be found and fines issued.'  Ministers had tried to eliminate all cases through isolation and closed borders, but just 17% of adults have been vaccinated and concerns are now growing over the virus' growing prevalence across the country.

Biden on Vaccine Mandates:  "It's Still a Question Whether the Federal Government Can Mandate the Whole Country... I Don't Know That Yet".  Joe Biden on Thursday delivered remarks on his administration's Covid-19 vaccination efforts.  Biden was asked about vaccine mandates in the private sector.  Joe Biden said he supports vaccine mandates in the private sector then said he isn't sure if the government can implement mandates on a federal level.  "I would like to see them continue to move in that direction... it's still a question whether the Federal government can mandate the whole country.  I don't know that yet," Biden said.

Joe Biden Just Opened the Door for Federally Mandated Vaccinations for Everyone.  One of Joe Biden's handlers should really reign him in.  He made a series of remarks today that ranged from head-scratching to anger-inducing.  At one point, Fox News' Peter Doocy pinned him down on his previous statements on vaccinations and masks, noting that the president is now saying the opposite.  That led to a flailing claim that he didn't say what he said while insisting the science on masks has changed when it simply hasn't.  But one comment involving the vaccines may be Biden's most ill-advised yet.  After being asked about businesses and local communities mandating vaccines, the president opened the door for federally ordered, mandatory vaccinations, not just for government employees, but for all Americans.  He noted that he's not sure if he can do it, though.  [Tweet]

Capitol Police to arrest bare-faced visitors.  "The People's House"?  Not so much.  That was so old-school, so yesterday, so in keeping with the spirit and intent of the Founders.  United States Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger recently announced that Capitol Police will start potentially arresting congressional aides and visitors to the House side of the Capitol if they have the audacity to appear there unmasked. [...] Though the same mandate technically applies to members of Congress, the same strict enforcement will not.  Of course.  Capitol Police, at least those who aren't then giving tearful testimony about how the January 6th protest was worse than Armageddon, will simply be asked to report bare-faced lawmakers to supervising officers "who will, in turn, refer the matter to the House Sergeant at Arms."

Another Scheme To Enlarge An Already Bloated Federal Government.  If Democrats have their way, America will eventually form a Civilian Climate Corps that will hire and train people to save Earth from overheating.  It's exactly what we've come to expect from the party that is obsessed with being an unchallengeable ruling class rather than a participant in our republican style of government. [...] As usual, the Democrats are having a mind-racing fever dream.  In this one they are consumed by visions of spending billions of dollars that aren't theirs, and sending out swarms of climate zealots to harass, lecture, and hector Americans over their use of fossil fuels.  They're likely seeing themselves solidifying a voter bloc so grateful for the party's largess, and so indoctrinated by its growing socialist ideology, that it will help elect Democrats for generations.  Never underestimate how power hungry the party is, nor how determined the progressive wing that's driving its agenda is to transform the U.S. by perpetually adding layers of government control.

The Many Guises Of The Totalitarian Impulse.  Wouldn't it be nice and fair and simple if all the voting systems across the country were the same?  Wouldn't it be nice and fair and simple if every school in the nation were equally as good?  Wouldn't it be nice and fair and simple if everyone had access to robust and identical health care programs? [...] For each of the above notions — among countless others — have something important in common:  The need for centralization; that is, the need for a centralized power to determine and then enforce exactly what equal means.  And that requires people to wield that power.

Sounds like forcible abduction.  Just like you might see in China or North Korea.
Andrew Cuomo:  We Must Knock on Doors, Put People in Cars, 'Drive them and Get that Vaccine in Their Arm'.  Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Monday [7/26/2021] said it is the community's mission to get more people vaccinated, previewing his administration's desire to knock on doors, put unvaccinated people in cars, and drive them to "get that vaccine in their arm."  "I wear a mask because I care about you.  I get a vaccine because I care about you," Cuomo said, framing compliance to various methods of government coercion as an expression of selflessness.

Biden DOJ Declares COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates Legal.  The Biden DOJ ruled that federal law doesn't prohibit public agencies, private business from requiring vaccines for employees[.]  It was only a few months ago that Kamala Harris said she would NEVER take the Trump endorsed vaccine.

The Duplicitous Ruling Elites Have Awakened the American People.  Over the past three decades a sizable majority of the ruling elites have been preoccupied with self-aggrandizement and cohabitation with the Communist Chinese, ignoring the gradual and now complete domination of many of the nation's institutions, and most importantly the Democrat party, by American Marxists.  After a premeditated fraudulent election underwritten by the same credulous elites, and with a witless marionette in the White House, these collectivists have been de facto governing the nation since January 20, 2021.  The past six months have revealed that thanks to these Marxists' mindless allegiance to failed ideology and breathtaking ignorance of the American experience and citizenry combined with the now unmasked duplicity of the ruling elites, there is a massive awakening bubbling to the surface.  This cabal has for the past five years marginalized, physically confronted and repeatedly accused not only the 75+ million Americans who voted for Donald Trump but any American not in lockstep with them of being racists, fascists and white supremacists as well as homophobic, xenophobic and among the vilest people on the face of the earth.

What Vaccines Say about the Precarious State of Our Freedom.  As purportedly "free" countries all over the world get their tyrannical freak on by insisting that every citizen be jabbed with an experimental pharmaceutical cocktail or face the wrath of the Leviathan, I am reminded of a letter from Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, in which he remarked:  "The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive."  Jefferson's point was that ordinary citizens represent a necessary check on the natural abuses of government and the last line of defense against corruption and political tyranny.  Make no mistake:  the writer of the Declaration of Independence saw government as not a benefactor of man's freedom, but rather its adversary.  "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground," Jefferson warned in another letter to Edward Carrington, a distinguished soldier and Virginia statesman.  Free people don't stay free by blindly trusting everything government officials say and do; free people stay free by treating government with great apprehension and even greater suspicion.

A Foretaste of Fascism.  How can we make sense of the Biden administration's project to establish a shadow state in which the federal government achieves its unconstitutional objectives — mask mandates, forced vaccines, suppression of religious freedom and free speech — by recruiting private corporations to do its bidding?  What is the official name for this public-private partnership in opposition to our liberties?  Before I answer this question, let's zoom in on precisely what the administration seeks to do.  It recognizes, of course, that any attempt to impose a nationwide mask mandate or to force Americans to take the vaccine would run into serious constitutional problems.  Where does the Constitution give the federal government the power to require such things?  Nowhere.  Moreover, there are practical obstacles.  How exactly would the federal government go about enforcing such mandates?  It would take a nationwide reporting system of unimaginable complexity to ensure full compliance with a mask mandate.  No less than a national vaccine database would be needed to ensure that all citizens took their compulsory vaccine.  In either case, it's unclear what penalties could be imposed on those who refused.

Big Tech 'Counterterrorism' Org Shifts Focus from Islamic Extremism to 'Far Right'.  Big Tech companies including Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, Reddit, Verizon, Airbnb, and Mailchimp will expand a project of collusion on "counterterrorism" efforts that target domestic right-wing organizations.  The organization, which initially focused on building a database on content shared by Islamic extremists linked to Al Qaeda, ISIS, and the Taliban, will now shift focus to right-wing groups including the Proud Boys.

So the vaccinated are "running out of patience," eh?  It seems as if every day we see another slew of headlines about the Delta variant and "resurgence" of the virus in this or that place.  In reality, even some of these surges involve a number of new positive tests that are still vastly lower than during the height of the pandemic last winter.  Still, there are cities that are bringing back mask mandates and complaining loudly about the slow vaccination rates.  These complaints are being picked up in the liberal media, with the vast majority of the blame being cast at a predictable group:  white, Republican Trump voters.

America Isn't Dead Yet.  The Biden administration is indeed colluding with Big Tech to crush dissent.  But like all previous Democratic attempts to suppress free speech, such as the Sedition Act of 1918, they will ultimately fail.  SCOTUS moves at an excruciatingly glacial pace.  Yet the Roberts Court, for all its faults, has issued an impressive series of rulings that have bolstered the First Amendment.  Republicans in Congress and the state legislatures have been dilatory in responding to the threat, but they are taking action.  Moreover, the Biden administration's collaboration with Big Tech has been so inept that it has itself already doomed that unholy alliance.  When White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted, "We're flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation," she discredited the specious argument that social media platforms aren't bound by the First Amendment because they are private corporations.  Their cooperation with the Biden administration to censor inconvenient viewpoints places them squarely in the category of "state actors" and thus subject to the same First Amendment restraints that bind the government.

Glenn Greenwald:  The Biden Administration Is Launching A "Second War On Terror" Against American Citizens.  Glenn Greenwald discusses reporting that FBI agents were involved more closely in an alleged 2020 plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan than they previously admitted.  [Video clip, transcript]

Sounds Stalinist?  Liberal Media Demands Trump Supporters Undergo Deprogramming.  They can't stand other opinions.  They can't.  They cannot be allowed to live.  The people who hold them must be targeted and smeared.  All must bow before the unholy altar of American progressivism.  If you can't convince them, destroy them, or deprogram them.  That's what The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson and Nikole Hannah-Jones wanted yesterday.  Grabien's Tom Elliott clipped the madness.  People who support Trump are mentally defective, so they must be deprogrammed.  What does that mean?  Sounds Stalinist in the extreme.  It also reeks of Chinese Cultural Revolution underpinnings.  Those who do not believe what we believe are off to the camps.  It's nothing new.  It only exposes the illiberal nature of the progressive Left.  There can be no deviations.  ALL must bow to the narrative.  You must take this position on this issue or risk annihilation.  Ever wonder why so many liberal policies are intrusive and mandatory?  They don't want to bother convincing you anymore, partially because most voters can see on its face that most of what liberal America offers is trash.  That's why you're forced to do things with a gun to your head.

Conservatism Is Over:  A New Vocabulary for a New Right.  [Scroll down]  Surveying American life and government in 2021, the failure of American conservatives cannot be denied.  What we lost was precisely the vision of American governance and virtues that Benjamin Franklin warned us would be a struggle to maintain.  Equality under the law?  Despite successes in recognizing the humanity of previously oppressed minority groups, the free market has enabled a crass commodification of legal representation that ensures many Americans must routinely settle for inferior counsel.  Another sign of bias in the legal institutions is that informed citizens who aren't lawyers can reliably predict the outcome of key cases merely by learning the number of the circuit court before which they will be argued.  But the betrayal of equality under the law isn't only evident in formal court proceedings — it can be seen in things like the increasingly discriminatory affirmative action policies in higher education, or the Biden Administration's overt racial favoritism in allocating COVID relief funds.

To Exert Complete Control, Communist Dictatorships Always Crush Religious Freedom.  Over the last couple of weeks, widespread protests have broken out across the island, with citizens rallying in opposition to the communist regime that's held power for over six decades.  While some explained the demonstrations were primarily due to rising COVID cases and lack of vaccines, it seems there's something deeper driving Cubans to the streets — evident by the fact that many of them are clearly heard shouting "Libertad!" (liberty) and waving the American flag to symbolize their search for freedom.  For Americans, there's an important lesson we must learn from the situation unfolding just ninety miles south of our shores.  That is, a sobering reminder that communist regimes such as the one in Cuba all begin in a similar way:  By crushing and stripping away the religious liberty of its citizens.  Because once a dictatorial, ruling elite succeed at destroying religious freedom and subjugating houses of worship to their power, it's only a matter of time until other fundamental freedoms — economic, political and social — are ripped away as well.  Make no mistake, the unrest we see in Cuba today is the result of religious suppression and a denial of fundamental human freedoms.  It's the outcome of what happens when our freedoms are decided by the government, as opposed to the eternal truth that our rights come from God.

COVID-19: A Weapon to Fundamentally Transform America.  While Americans have been asleep at the wheel, the power brokers were manipulating us into constant societal unrest, with dwindling individual liberties and growing dependency on the government and big corporations.  COVID-19 has been a handy justification for left-leaning politicians to promote and solidify their ideology.  What many Americans were led to believe was well-intentioned concern for our safety and health has turned into a morass of ever-changing rules designed not for our health, but to accustom us to government control of our lives.

Dissent Is the Highest Form of Patriotism... but Not Online.  "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."  It's a phrase that was credited to Thomas Jefferson, but there's no real evidence that he ever said or wrote this popular phrase used quite often by people on the left — when they feel the need to justify their often ludicrous actions against anyone in charge with an "R" next to their name.  The phrase (likely actually born in the '60s) is one that I never truly agreed with.  I don't think dissent is a high form of patriotism, but it is a key element in a free society.  The highest form of patriotism remains to serve, and possibly die for your country.  Any leftist who used the phrase automatically made me think of them as a little high on their own supply.  They aren't that noble.  Funny enough, this cliché of a phrase used to pardon even the most bloody of protests seems to go from virtue to vice in the blink of an eye... when the Democrats are in charge.  Now, all that dissent they were cheerleading a moment ago borders on treason.

The Rank Shame of the FBI's Rank and File.  The FBI's rank and file recently banged down the door of a Florida pastor and his son.  Neither were accused of violent crimes, but the rank and file arrested both of them, taking the pastor's son into custody in front of his three-year-old daughter.  The rank and file terrorized a Lakeland, Florida community by shouting through loudspeakers and using flashbang devices in its pre-dawn raid on the home of three January 6 suspects.  The rank and file arrested a 69-year-old California woman accused of taking photos in the Capitol building for 30 minutes, after members of the rank and file questioned her without an attorney present.  She thought she was helping the rank and file catch the "real" bad guys, only to learn that the rank and file had targeted her as the bad guy for her half-hour of photography.  These types of boorish, melodramatic arrests of by-and-large ordinary Americans have been carried out by the rank and file for more than six months.  The manner of the arrests themselves is clearly punitive, meant to send a clear message: the federal government is powerful, and if you are deemed its enemy, you will feel its wrath. [...] No members of the rank and file FBI, as far as we know, have acknowledged the immorality of what they are being ordered to do — terrorize and embarrass the political opponents of their own bosses.  Not one member of the rank and file FBI has said to himself, "This just isn't right," and turned in his badge and gun in protest.

Goodbye, America:  We no longer have a Constitution.  For months now, we had known that the tech powers were watching us and suppressing any dissident speech against the current administration.  I have seen it up close and personal.  But what was argued was that the First Amendment to the Constitution protected us only against Congress and the executive branch suppressing free speech.  It did not protect us from private enterprises, even very large private enterprises like Amazon or Google or Facebook, keeping tabs on citizens and shutting them out of the internet-sphere if they expressed views contradicting the views and policies of the Biden-Harris-Big Tech Party.  True, there was one big case involving a large steel company suppressing free speech by its workers, and the Supreme Court ruled that such a big company suppressing free speech on its company properties was indeed a violation of the First Amendment.  But that was rare indeed.  Now, in the year 2021, the iron curtain has come down hard.  With Big Internet Tech and the White House now admittedly colluding to identify and suppress dissidents, even completely nonviolent dissidents, we no longer have a Constitution.

Who's Next?  [Scroll down]  Oh yes: they know that parents and school boards across the country are standing up to drive their nasty racialist creed out of local schools.  They know, and they intend to put a stop to it.  It is a hallmark of authoritarian regimes to define political action by the opposition as inherently violent and morally unconscionable.  When one side can riot, loot, and murder with official sanction, while the other cannot so much as organize without risking a summary imprisonment of indefinite duration, there are not really two sides anymore at all.  These are developments which need attention, and vigorous opposition, now.  Tomorrow is too late; today is already getting there.  That is why we are focusing attention on this Strategy, and why we have invited a number of contributors to describe the threat and what can be done about it.

Zombie chimps from heck.  The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff testifies that "white supremacism" is the biggest current threat to national security.  But the death toll from white supremacist terror acts in the last 50 years is a number approaching zero, whereas Islamic terror victims in America number somewhere around 4,000, including dozens of military victims.  And all of the burning, looting, street violence, and political attacks of recent years have been from Antifa- and Black Lives Matters — aligned agitators.  Furthermore, Blacks are approximately 27 times more likely to commit interracial violence than whites are, so blaming "white supremacy" for anything is insanely irrational.  Yet the military chiefs are openly zeroing their weapons in on the heartland.

The New Orthodoxy: Jurisdiction over your Thoughts.  [Scroll down]  Their problem is that the truth is an ever-fixed mark.  While they cannot transform the truth — the truth, by its very nature, is unchanging — they circumvent this limitation by exercising power over what can be said.  This gives the impression that what can be said is what is supposed to be said, and that what is prohibited must certainly be false.  Not by the merits of the claim but whether the claim is allowed to be communicated or researched or even debated.  This is how falsehoods win over the truth, and how politics corrupts it all.  Reporting on studies of vaccine effectiveness — even by the inventor of the mRNA technology used in some COVID vaccines — are banned from YouTube.  Medical experts and scientists who present evidence and arguments contrary to government-approved thoughts are silenced.  It seems the only authorized information on these platforms is that which is approved by "the CDC, FDA and other local health authorities."  White House press secretary Jen Psaki, expressing the position of the Biden Administration, called for Americans to be banned from all social media platforms if they dare think for themselves and disagree with "science."

The Biden Regime Has Made Us All Enemies of the State.  There's no way to go halfsies on totalitarianism.  Once the government decides it may declare who has rights and who has none, it is a short walk for the government to decide who has life and who has none.  Over 63 million babies have been killed since Roe v Wade, after all, and once you teach a population that a baby is only as alive as a woman chooses, it's not difficult to teach those same people that political opponents are not worthy of life at all.  When individual liberty and private ownership are ridiculed in the name of the "common good," taking life for the "greater good" is never far behind.

Biden's Door to Door Plan to Inoculate Americans.  As if the conflict between American parents, their public school districts, and CDC requirements were not already enough to create a firestorm of unpredictable proportions, President Joe Biden has dramatically increased the stakes by announcing a door-to-door policy to inoculate millions of Americans.  The prospect of a national at-your-front-door vaccination program represents a massive Fourth Amendment assault that threatens the future of the country's Constitutional republic.  As appears to have been the case since Covid was first identified, politics more than the science continues to guide public health decisions rather.  Reputable scientists have connected what has been identified as spike protein bioweapon with what is more commonly referred to as Covid 19; which is not a scientific vaccine yet is still classified by the FDA as an untested Emergency Use Authorization in order to facilitate public usage.  As if Biden's announcement was not enough to cause great clanging alarm bells, WH press secretary Jan Psaki removed any doubt as to the government's true agenda.  Her follow-up to Biden's announcement included reference to the creation of 'strike forces' which removed any benign appearance from what may be shaping up to be the implementation of a nation-wide militarized deployment.

The Rise Of a Secret Unaccountable Police Force in America.  Our founders knew that concentrating too much power in any one federal agency — especially a law enforcement agency — could lead to a tyrannical police state.  It was one of their greatest fears.  After all, they knew a thing or two about tyranny, and it was something they wanted to avoid at all costs. [...] To be clear:
  •   The U.S. Capitol Police operates in secret.
  •   The U.S. Capitol Police is not accountable to the public.
  •   The U.S. Capitol Police has little oversight, given its "personal relationship" with Congress.
  •   The U.S. Capitol Police has a history of operating outside of its scope — such as making drug arrests off capitol grounds.
  •   The U.S. Capitol Police will soon be operating in many states with a mandate that's nebulous at best.
If you add all of these factors together, you end up with a secret police force that is ripe for abuse — a team of modern-day witch hunters willing to do whatever the politicians in charge desire.  It all comes down to whom they consider a threat.  We all know what the Biden/Harris administration and Democratic congressional leaders think of gun owners.  Once you disagree with their gun-confiscation plans you're labeled a "violent extremist."  Are we now going to become the subject of secret police investigations?

The Rise Of a Secret Unaccountable Police Force in America.  There is no doubt that our founders never envisioned a police state that we are faced with today and indeed, it is a police state that is growing.  On top of that, having corrupt politicians, who are out to pad their own wallets, continu[e] to maintain power in the name of serving the people and generally ignore the Constitution and restraints on government, it is not surprising that there is a growing secret, unaccountable police force in America, but really they are not so secretive, just their agenda is secret for the most part.  You know them as the United States Capitol Police (USCP).

Caution:  This article is replete with left-wing bias and government propaganda.
Majority of Covid misinformation came from 12 people, report finds.  The vast majority of Covid-19 anti-vaccine misinformation and conspiracy theories originated from just 12 people, a report by the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) cited by the White House this week found.  CCDH, a UK/US non-profit and non-governmental organization, found in March that these 12 online personalities they dubbed the "disinformation dozen" have a combined following of 59 million people across multiple social media platforms, with Facebook having the largest impact.  CCDH analyzed 812,000 Facebook posts and tweets and found 65% came from the disinformation dozen.  Vivek Murthy, US surgeon general, and Joe Biden focused on misinformation around vaccines this week as a driving force of the virus spreading.  On Facebook alone, the dozen are responsible for 73% of all anti-vaccine content, though the vaccines have been deemed safe and effective by the US government and its regulatory agencies.  And 95% of the Covid misinformation reported on these platforms were not removed.

The Editor says...
The government makes rash and highly dubious pronouncements about Covid-19, and then uses it power to silence all dissent.  That's un-American.

Core Constitutional Rights Under Threat From 'Quasi-Totalitarian Movement': Constitutional Scholar.  Rob Natelson, a Senior Fellow in Constitutional Jurisprudence at the Independence Institute in Denver, warned of a "quasi-totalitarian movement" that is threatening the core rights enshrined in the Constitution, from the right to be locally governed to freedom of fair and honest elections.  A leading constitutional scholar whose work has been repeatedly cited in the U.S. Supreme Court cases, Natelson told The Epoch Times that the U.S. Consitution created a federal system in which people could govern themselves in their own states and their own families.  As the federal government became increasingly centralized, however, Americans have lost control of their ability to govern themselves.  "In a federal system, if someone is unhappy with a policy of his state, he can move to another state.  But if the government is unitary, then it's the same everywhere, and that reduces human freedom," he said, noting that the recently defeated election bill H.R.1, also known as the For The People Act, would have threatened the states' freedom to self-govern.

Regime Spokesperson Very Defensive About Americans Knowing the White House is Reviewing Their Social Media.  The Biden regime is becoming increasingly unstable as they attempt to keep control over the American people.  During a terse exchange today, spokesperson Jen Psaki attempts to justify the White House surveillance of American speech saying the Facebook platform users should be "more concerned" with people dying from COVID than having their community speech monitored by the federal government.  When questioned about the U.S. Federal Government now openly admitting Big Brother is watching you, the regime defender responds: "They are more concerned about that, than people dying across the country because of a pandemic where misinformation is traveling on social media platforms?"  Continuing with, "That feels unlikely to me, if you have the data to back that up I'm happy to discuss it."  Fox News journalist Peter [Doocy] asked the regime to name the 12 people on Facebook the White House has identified as problematic for the interests of the state; however, the spokesperson refused to name them, obviously and transparently fearing a lawsuit.

Sebelius: Unvaccinated Americans Should Not Be Allowed to Work, Have Access to Children.  Former Obama administration Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Tuesday on CNN's "OutFront" that Americans who have not received a coronavirus vaccine should not be allowed to work or have access to children and be limited on where they are allowed to go.  Sebelius said, "We're in a situation where we have a wildly effective vaccine, multiple choices, lots available, free of charge, and we have folks who are just saying I won't do it.  I think that it's time to say to those folks, it's fine if you don't choose to get vaccinated.  You may not come to work.  You may not have access to a situation where you're going to put my grandchildren in jeopardy.  Where you might kill them, or you might put them in a situation where they're going to carry the virus to someone in a high-risk position."

Geraldo Rivera calls for crackdown on the unvaccinated: 'No work, no school, no in-person shopping'.  One of Fox News Channel's top personalities called for mandatory vaccination against COVID-19, upon threat of forced home isolation.  Geraldo Rivera made the demand Tuesday reacting to a story in the New York Post that nearly one-third of New York's nursing-home workers hadn't been vaccinated.  Mr. Rivera agreed on Twitter that this situation was "absolutely insane" and issued the crackdown demand.

The Editor says...
When the government nags you about getting vaccinations and wearing face masks, that's just an annoying nanny state.  When the government threatens your freedom of association, your ability to buy and sell, your ability to live with your family, and your freedom to move about the country as you please — all because of an overblown illness that you wouldn't have noticed without the help of television news — that's outright tyranny.

State Police Assisting in Hunt for Individuals Making 'False Claims' About 2020 Election.  Michigan residents who make what state officials say are false claims about the 2020 election could end up getting a visit from state troopers.  State Attorney General Dana Nessel and the Michigan State Police are going to investigate claims that some people making fraud allegations about the 2020 election are profiting from those allegations, Bridge Michigan reported Thursday [7/8/2021].  The Republican-led Senate Oversight Committee recently issued a report saying that it did not find systemic fraud in the November election.

Democrats Move to Take Over Your Credit Score and Go Full 'Woke' — Just Like Communist China.  Leftist Democrats, but I repeat myself, are making no secret of their plans to become more like their comrades in China.  They support vaccine passports for COVID mRNA shots in order for people to receive certain social rewards such as going to school or attending a Major League Baseball game, just like the social credit score system in the People's Republic.  Now, Democrats and Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the chair of the House Financial Services Committee, want your FICO score to go full "woke."  They're not even trying to hide it.  USA Today reports that in testimony before Waters's committee on June 29, the counsel for a group called the National Consumer Law Center, Chi Chi Wu, a product of Harvard and Johns Hopkins, gave away the game on how her law-fare grifting group and people like them want to change FICO credit scores.  Wu and her fellow travelers got a warm reception at the three-hour-plus hearing.

Government document instructs vaccine "strike force" teams how to clear buildings, violate trespass laws and flag anti-vaxxers for forced quarantines.  A government document that has recently surfaced offers horrifying details on how door-to-door "strike force" vaccine enforcement teams plan to operate.  Labeled, "Community Health Ambassador Outreach Door Knocking Project," a now-public document published by the government of Lake County, Illinois, instructs "ambassadors" to:
  •   Violate "no soliciting" restrictions and illegally trespass onto private property.
  •   Impersonate Health Dept. officials and attempt to intimidate building managers into consenting to allowing entry for the strike force teams.
  •   Lie to the public and falsely claim covid vaccines are safe by withholding information about serious vaccine side effects, including hospitalizations and deaths.
  •   Clear buildings in military fashion, going floor by floor, wing by wing, knocking on doors and intimidating residents of apartment buildings and residential units.
  •   Recording the locations (address, room number) of anti-vaxxers in order to feed this information into a government database for further action — most likely forced quarantine removal (medical kidnapping).
White House spokesperson Jen Psaki announced last week that the Biden regime would activate door-to-door "strike forces" to coerce more people into getting vaccinated:  [Video clip] [...] Note that these teams are instructed to lie to the public and imply that these are "approved vaccines" which are completely safe.  In truth, none of the covid vaccines are FDA approved, and all of them have been linked to hospitalizations, deaths and a long list of side effects including myocarditis (heart inflammation), heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, muscle tremors, neurological problems and more.

You are Now in the Totalitarian Zone.  In a press release, the Capitol Police, a largely patronage operation designed to protect the Capitol, just received a large boost in its already substantial budget to build regional offices in California and Florida and then in other regions "to investigate threats to members of Congress.  Reason shares my concern about yet another spying operation:  ["]The department does not need to become yet another unaccountable intelligence agency involved in the dubious and often nakedly political project of conducting widespread surveillance on the American people.  Opening field agencies and monitoring "threats to members of Congress" are actions that dilute the Capitol Police's very clear mandate to guard the Capitol building.  The FBI, National Security Agency (NSA), Department of Homeland Security, and CIA are already empowered to investigate threats to political leaders; the federal government does not need to hire additional spymasters for this purpose, especially given that the agencies burdened with doing so have tended to violate the rights of innocent Americans.  But make no mistake:  The Capitol Police has every intention of becoming just like the FBI and the NSA.["]  Even worse, as the Capitol Police force is considered part of Congress, it is not covered by the Freedom of Information Act which means its operations are not transparent or accountable.  That's what has so far kept it from having to divulge the name of the officer who shot Ashli Babbitt.  Neither the Capitol Police nor the FBI has made publicly available the thousands of hours of videos of the January 6 Capitol riot which by now only the most deranged, ill-informed, or partisan continue to claim was an "armed insurrection" or one that resulted in the death of an officer.

The Capitol Police Will Open Offices in the States To 'Investigate Threats to Members of Congress'.  The January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol thrust its police force into a sympathetic national spotlight; like any other government agency, the U.S. Capitol Police has seized this opportunity to expand its mission and acquire additional funding.  Now the Capitol Police plans to build regional field offices in the states:  California and Florida, for starters.  "The Department is also in the process of opening Regional Field Offices in California and Florida with additional regions in the near future to investigate threats to Members of Congress," notes the department in a press release. [...] This development should be vigorously opposed by all civil libertarians.  Unfortunately, funding for the Capitol Police is tied into a larger, fraught political narrative about right-wing threats to law and order.  For many on the right, Trump and his unhinged supporters are the good guys, which makes the Capitol Police the bad guys.  For liberals, it's the reverse.  This has hopelessly scrambled what should have been a clear consensus that the U.S. does not need another domestic spy agency.

Nationalizing the Capitol Police.  Do we really want a nationwide federal police force accountable solely to a small number of legislators, not subject to FOIA and other citizen protections applicable to the executive branch?  The Acting Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police has recently announced the expansion of their federal force into Florida and California.  Two new field offices will be opening in Tampa and San Francisco, due to claims from Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman that the number of threats against sitting Congressmen has doubled in the last year.  However, this isn't D.C.'s first effort to implement a new national police force.  Just last June, House Democrats voted to pass H.R. 7120, an attempt to nationalize state and local police departments across the entire country, disguised as legislation for defunding the police.

That Troubling Expansion of Capitol Police Gets Even Worse With Tech They Plan to Use.  We previously reported on the troubling expansion of satellite offices of the Capitol Police being planned across the country.  Unlike other federal government-related police which are subject to FOIA and part of the executive branch, the Capitol Police are under the control of Congress and not subject to FOIA. So, basically you have a police force controlled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spreading out across the country. [...] Not only will they be setting up across the country, starting first with offices in California and Florida, but they will have military surveillance equipment as they become "an intelligence based protective agency," according to the Washington Times. [...] What's the justification for that, all of the sudden?  All of this because of a three-hour riot?  Why does this not sound like it's just to deal with present threats against members of Congress?  And can we talk about the problems of using such things to spy on Americans — and all the constitutional questions that might raise?

Capitol Police to use Army surveillance system on Americans to 'identify emerging threat'.  The U.S. Capitol Police will begin fielding military surveillance equipment as part of sweeping security upgrades as the police force pivots towards becoming "an intelligence-based protective agency" following the Jan. 6 attack.  Defense Secretary Loyd Austin recently approved the Capitol Police's request for eight Persistent Surveillance Systems Ground - Medium (PSSG-M) units.  The system provides high-definition surveillance video and is enabled with night vision.  The system does not include facial recognition capabilities, according to the Pentagon.  "This technology will be integrated with existing USCP camera infrastructure, providing greater high definition surveillance capacity to meet steady-state mission requirements and help identify emerging threats," the Pentagon said.

Biden Does Not Need A Domestic "Terrorism" Agenda Unless He Is About To Violate American Rights.  The federal government is a kind of self perpetuating blob; a cannibalistic creature that must continue to feed on the public and the systems around it in order to survive, but it also must create reasons for its existence so that it may go on feeding uninterrupted. [...] There are only two real mandates for the government, only two reasons for its existence in our republic:  To secure America's borders from invasion and to protect the freedoms of the citizenry.  That's it.  It is not the job of the government to compel you to take an experimental and questionable covid vaccine over a virus that 99.7% of people will easily survive.  It is not the job of the government to create artificial "social equity" by favoring one group or ethnicity over another.  It is not the job of the government to spy on millions of Americans because they do not agree with the leftist ideology.  It is not the job of government to make war on the very people it is mandated to protect.  Yet, this is exactly what the government is doing today while its totalitarianism is disguised as "humanitarianism".  In other words, they are essentially arguing that they must make war on the people in order to protect the people from themselves.

A Vacuous and Potentially Dangerous Response to Domestic Terrorism.  On June 15, the White House issued a "Fact Sheet:  National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism."  This fact sheet is strangely devoid of facts and is vacuous in the extreme, but it communicates that the present administration sees a connection between defeating terrorism and having a government-controlled economy.  Is it not true that vacuous thoughts presented as though they were serious and careful are almost always dangerous?  Based upon this principle of understanding, the "national strategy" is one of the most dangerous documents I have read in my lifelong study of U.S. history.  The shift from domestic terrorism to much greater control by the federal government of our economy on the last page of the document is the product of a sleight of hand or a verbal shell game.  The reader thinks he is reading about one thing but finds that the Fact Sheet finishes with conclusions about matters not even remotely implied by the title of the report.

Huge, Troubling Expansion of the Capitol Police Coming, Across the Country.  The Capitol is still locked down, still closed to Americans.  One has to ask why.  The Democrats are going to try to use the 'investigation' of the three-hour Capitol riot by a select committee to continue an effort to connect Republicans to the event and bash them going into 2022.  All that is troubling.  But now there's something that perhaps is even more troubling because of the clear potential for abuse.  [Tweet]  According to the New York Times, the U.S. Capitol Police have announced they are now planning to expand operations outside Washington "beginning with the opening of field offices in California and Florida" but the plan is to open "several additional regional offices."  Their spokesman says they need to monitor and quickly investigate threats against lawmakers.

Nancy Pelosi Directs Capitol Hill Security Police Units to Regional Offices in California and Florida, Future Locations Coming.  In a remarkable display of how committed the Democrat party is to utilizing the narrative of domestic extremism for their own benefit, Nancy Pelosi is placing satellite field offices for the DC Capitol Police in key regions around the country.  When we consider the FBI has field offices all over the country, you might ask:  why does the Capitol Hill police need to expand beyond Washington DC?  Essentially, what Nancy Pelosi is doing is expanding the federal law enforcement mechanism of the legislative branch into specific areas where they can investigate political opposition armed with legal authority.  This is a concerning shift in events; however, there is a likelihood such a move is connected to the larger political goal of enhanced federal enforcement to quell any rebellion, while working in concert with the DOJ.

The Biden Administration's domestic terrorism strategy threatens to criminalize conservative speech and thought.  [Scroll down]  To help depict the events of January 6 as terrorism, Democrats and their anti-Trump media allies have repeatedly promoted the misimpression that the perpetrators killed somebody.  The New York Times reported on January 8 that Capitol officer Brian Sicknick died in the melee from getting "struck with a fire extinguisher."  This account of his death was then cited in House Democrats' February trial memorandum to impeach former President Trump.  Throughout the impeachment, Trump's political enemies — from CNN to MSNBC, to the Lincoln Project, to Nancy Pelosi — emphasized that the January 6 attack on the Capitol was a terrorist incident that killed Officer Sicknick.  Even after the official medical examiner concluded in April that Sicknick died from natural causes, President Biden, MSNBC, and CNN have continued to promote the politically self-serving fiction that he was killed in a terrorist attack.  Side with the medical examiner and you are branded a January 6 "truther."

Did You Miss The Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs Of Staff Labeling Trump Voters Enemies Of The State?  For years, I admired Gen. Mark Milley and defended him in conversations when others attacked him as being too political.  No more.  The breaking point was Milley's recent testimony before Congress.  Others have pointed out much of what was wrong with his testimony.  But the worst part has gone unnoticed and unremarked.  It was not his statement that "thousands of people" assaulted the U.S. Capitol building.  Nor was it his fabrication of "white rage" as the cause for the January 6 riot at the capitol.  It was not even his false equivalency of officers who have studied Mao Zedong in order to understand their enemies with the current exhortations to read unabashed race-baiters and other charlatans, not to understand our enemies, but because many in the government, including in the military, are promoting their propaganda.  No, the most dangerous aspect of this testimony by the highest-ranking officer in the U.S. military was validating the use of military personnel and lethal military force against political opponents of the administration.

What if anti-vaxxers decide to 'identify' as being inoculated?  We have surrendered our individual responsibilities to medical "experts" (?) who still debate whether the vaccines are safe or effective.  Why have only about half of the employees at the NIH and CDC accepted the vaccination?  For more than a year, we've relinquished our daily freedoms to the faux security of masks. [...] It's highly likely that denying unvaccinated college students admission to "in person" classes is just the tip of a massive social engineering iceberg.  Visualize, or should I say "identify" as, someone who, in the future, is denied access to public events, city council meetings, restaurants, churches, banks, airline terminals, public transportation, and even walking on sidewalks, because you are deemed irresponsible, uncooperative, and labeled a "contagious threat" to yourself and others.  With one phone call, your doctor, neighbor, co-worker, or government official could put you on a "no-fly," "no-social-events," "no-outdoor-activity," or "no-ballot" list.  Brace yourself, folks, because a vaccination "passport," microchip, or barcode on the forehead could be just around the corner.

Are We Nazi Germany?  Like a lot of Americans, I always assumed that America was safe from the kind of tyranny the German people experienced under the heavy hand of the Third Reich.  There is no way our federal, state, and local governments could restrain and control the American people the way Hitler and his Nazis dominated the German population, I thought.  Yet, for the past eighteen months, that's exactly what has happened in America.  A nation that always prided itself on its independence and individuality was suddenly locked down.  Travel was restricted, schools and businesses were shuttered, we were commanded to wear face masks, voting laws were altered, isolation and quarantines were mandated, and speech was censored by social and mainstream media if Big Tech oligarchs judged what was said or written as "misinformation."  It didn't stop there.  A public health emergency was declared, borders were closed, and large gatherings were forbidden — including church attendance, funerals, and weddings.

What Happened to Honor Among America's Military Leaders?  America's top military leaders have thrust themselves into the national spotlight by their overt politization and cowardly acquiescence to the radicalized Democrat Party.  The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Milley, in Congressional testimony, defended the teaching and promotion of Marxist based Critical Race Theory throughout the military.  He also linked what he categorized as rampant "White Rage" to the 75+million supporters of President Trump.  The Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Gilday, defended the Navy-wide dissemination of an anti-White virulently racist screed.  Further, the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, ordered a purge throughout the military of those he considers "extremists" (i.e., the supporters of President Trump) while tacitly agreeing with Joe Biden that the most lethal threat to America is domestic violent extremism, in other words, the untold millions of "White" people that supposedly advocate nearly non-existent "white supremacy".

The lockdown fanatics are moving on to climate change.  Sir David King is a former UK chief scientific adviser to successive New Labour governments, and the founder of Independent SAGE, the self-appointed group of experts offering scientific advice to the UK government and the public on how to handle Covid.  He has now announced he is to convene a new Indie SAGE-like group, this time tackling climate — the Climate Crisis Advisory Group (CCAG).  According to the Guardian, CCAG 'will emulate the impact of Independent SAGE' on Covid policymaking and 'advise, warn and criticise global policymakers about the climate and nature crises'.  No doubt, this means that CCAG will attempt to do for climate change what Indie SAGE has done for Covid — that is, drive an alarmist opinion into mainstream public discussion.

Merrick Garland Good and Fully Jumps the Shark With Admission on DOJ Targeting Red States.  The DOJ is completely compromised by partisanship at this point.  That was the conclusion drawn by multiple RedState writers yesterday, who opined about AG Merrick Garland's announced lawsuit against Georgia for their recent election reform law.  The lawsuit itself reads like it was written by a Harvard diversity studies professor.  It makes all sorts of unsubstantiated claims, while presuming that things like the racial makeup of those who voted for the law somehow play into its legality.

How I Got Classified as an Anti-Government Domestic Extremist.  The Biden Administration recently released its National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism.  After reading the fact sheet, which was a bit disconcerting, I downloaded the full National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism document.  By the time I finished reading, I was shocked.  Evidently, President Biden thinks I am an anti-government domestic extremist.  But that's not all.  Almost all of my friends and most of the people in the small Southern community where I live are anti-government domestic extremists, too. [...] The reality is there isn't that much politically motivated domestic extremist violence happening in United States.  Sure, there are countless FBI-manufactured plots and Homeland Security fever dreams of internet chatter to scare the public.  But if one excludes Black Lives Matter and Antifa, actual political violence incidents, in a country of 330 million people, are a statistical anomaly.  The extremely rare occurrences — the report mentions six over a 26-year period (including a Black Lives Matter activist misidentified as an anti-government extremist — does not make a domestic terrorism pandemic.

Rudy Giuliani's suspended law license is a warning to Conservatives: the Left's coming for you.  The fact that Rudy Giuliani had his law license suspended in the state of New York should be a warning to us all:  If you believe the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen, the Left is coming for you.  Rudy Giuliani was President Donald Trump's lead attorney in handling the aftermath of the 2020 Election.  While there is debate as to whether he was the most effective in regards to their attempt to expose the stolen election, he is a true patriot who loves this country and did his job furthering the legal recourse his client, the President of the United States, hired him to follow through on.  The Left, however, do not care about reality or the rule of law.  Instead, they care about power.  With the impending Arizona Audit results going to be released soon, it's no wonder that they are doing anything they can to discredit Conservatives and Trump supporters.  What we have to realize about this, as tragic as it is for Rudy, this is a warning shot to the rest of us.  If we continue to hold the line and fight for election integrity, we face similar pressure from the powers-that-be.

Rudy Fires Back at New York Over Suspended Law License.  Rudy Giuliani fired back at the partisan judges who retaliated against him for election fraud claims he made while representing his client Donald Trump after the contested 2020 election.  Giuliani made the comments to Newsmax in an interview with Greg Kelly on Thursday night [6/24/2021]. "This is a Democrat decision by five judges who should be themselves investigated, because they're destroying fairness," Giuliani remarked.  [Video clip]

Lead Georgia Election Critic Condemns New York Supreme Court on Giuliani.  I had already scheduled an interview with Garland Favorito, founder of Voter GA, to discuss the latest judicial decisions in his group's ongoing investigation of possible voter fraud in Georgia during the recent presidential election, when news broke the New York Supreme Court had suspended Rudolph Giuliani's license to practice law in the state.  The written decision — more like a political tract than a legal brief — referenced the Georgia audit.  So, before anything else, I asked Favorito about it, wondering if he had something to say about what happened to the man we used to call "America's mayor."  Did he ever.  At first Favorito simply said, "The New York Supreme Court made false assumptions about Georgia on it and used them improperly against Giuliani."  Then he added:  "The State Farm Arena video they showed, I'm sorry, showed clear violations of Georgia law committed by election officials."

N.Y. Court Revokes Giuliani's Law License For Exposing Election Fraud.  Rudy Giuliani, the former personal lawyer to President Trump, criticized a New York state appeals court decision to suspend his law license.  On Thursday, a the court ruled Giuliani has made "false and misleading statements" regarding voter fraud while defending the 45th president in several swing states after the 2020 election.  While speaking to reporters, Giuliani questioned how the court asserted he lied if he has yet to receive an official hearing.  "If you wanna say I said something irresponsible, you gotta give me a chance to defend myself," he stated.  "I can more than defend myself.  I can show that everything I said was based on a witness.  They have never bothered to check that."

What is Behind Gen. Mark Milley's Righteous Race Sermon?  Look to the New Domestic War on Terror.  The post-WW2 military posture of the U.S. has been endless war.  To enable that, there must always be an existential threat, a new and fresh enemy that can scare a large enough portion of the population with sufficient intensity to make them accept, even plead for, greater military spending, surveillance powers, and continuation of permanent war footing.  Starring in that war-justifying role of villain have been the Communists, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Russia, and an assortment of other fleeting foreign threats.  According to the Pentagon, the U.S. intelligence community, and President Joe Biden, none of those is the greatest national security threat to the United States any longer.  Instead, they all say explicitly and in unison, the gravest menace to American national security is now domestic in nature.  Specifically, it is "domestic extremists" in general — and far-right white supremacist groups in particular — that now pose the greatest threat to the safety of the homeland and to the people who reside in it.  In other words, to justify the current domestic War on Terror that has already provoked billions more in military spending and intensified domestic surveillance, the Pentagon must ratify the narrative that those they are fighting in order to defend the homeland are white supremacist domestic terrorists.  That will not work if white supremacists are small in number or weak and isolated in their organizing capabilities.  To serve the war machine's agenda, they must pose a grave, pervasive and systemic threat.

Charlie Kirk:  Tyrants Want to Overturn Our Constitutional Rights but People Hold Political Power.  The constitutional rights of Americans are under assault from politically biased tyrants who want to use their power to restrict freedom of speech, according to Charlie Kirk, founder and president of conservative student group Turning Point USA[.]  Whether it's from Big Tech and big government working together on censorship, lockdowns restricting church services, or a slew of policies whittling away other freedoms written in the Bill of Rights, the rights of Americans are under assault from nearly all directions.  In an interview with EpochTV's "Crossroads" program, Kirk said the so-called tyrants — including private corporations — will continue to use their power to restrict the constitutional rights of Americans unless people use their political power to" actually check their power and to protect natural rights and freedoms."

Biden tries to turn domestic security into partisan witch hunt.  The day after 9/11, everything changed.  Realizing the nation needed a more integrated, holistic approach to domestic security, Congress created the Department of Homeland Security.  Combating terrorism became job No. 1.  All this came with a caveat.  From the start, Americans remained understandably concerned.  Under the wrong leaders, these powerful instruments of public safety could be turned into weapons for partisan action:  suppressing free speech, invading privacy, denying the right to assemble peacefully, and persecuting political opponents.  Isn't that exactly what the Biden administration is now doing?  The warning signs are certainly all there.  Consider how this administration is politicizing the threat of domestic terrorism.

Biden to gun owners:  If you want to take on the U.S. government, you'd better have F-15s and nukes.  "This isn't the first time Biden's warned the gov't would use every weapon in its arsenal against Americans," quipped Tom Elliott, remembering how Biden said something like this at a rally early last year.  Maybe the Second Amendment should be extended to include F-15s.  Seriously, though, this dumb gun-control talking point is deathless even though it's never been clearer how untrue it is. [...] There are many lessons to be learned from America's adventure in Afghanistan but an easy one is that a crudely equipped force using guerrilla tactics is fully capable of prevailing over one with superior firepower.  That lesson should have been clear already from Vietnam but our experience fighting jihadis in the Middle East leaves no doubt.

Concerned Parents Protesting CRT Arrested After Virginia School Board Meeting Declared Unlawful Assembly.  Parents were arrested while protesting against Critical Race Theory (CRT) and a transgender policy at a Virginia school board meeting Tuesday [6/22/2021].  The meeting in Loudoun County, Virginia abruptly ended after the crowd became too rowdy and was later declared an unlawful assembly, footage posted to Twitter showed.  Two arrests were reportedly made for trespassing after some parents refused to leave.  [Video clip]

Things Explode at School Board Meeting Over CRT, Arrests Are Made.  Things are popping off in Loudon County, VA tonight as the debates over critical race theory and transgender issues in schools heat up.  Over 200 parents signed up to give public comments at a local school board meeting, and things just got crazier from there.  Eventually, an unlawful assembly was declared and several arrests were made. [...] All the crowd did was clap in support of someone's comment.  That's literally the extent of their "eruption," but that was enough for the little tyrants on the school board to shut down the meeting and get the cops involved.

Judge Charges 3 U.S. Marshals After Deputy Marshal Refused To Say If She Was Vaccinated.  A federal judge in South Dakota brought criminal charges of contempt of court and conspiracy to obstruct justice against three U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) officials on Monday in connection with a deputy marshal's refusal to reveal her vaccination status to his court.  In March, U.S. District Judge Charles Kornmann tried to require all courthouse employees to be vaccinated, the Associated Press reported.  But U.S. Marshal Daniel Mosteller, who heads up the agency in South Dakota, told Kornmann that wouldn't work because USMS was not requiring its marshals to be vaccinated.

Justice Department domestic terror document could ensnare Biden critics, professor tells Tucker.  A Justice Department dossier called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism" was released this week with much fanfare by Attorney General Merrick B. Garland, but one political scientist warns the actual text proves even the most casual critic of the Biden administration could be ensnared in its definition, and therefore face punishment.  On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Nicholas Giordano — whom host Tucker Carlson described as a government document expert — and who is also a professor at Suffolk Community College in Selden, N.Y., warned that Garland's document is "one of the most concerning" he has ever studied.  "When you look at it, it is clear the [legal] analysts in the field didn't write this document, it was the political appointees trying to push an agenda.  They list three factors to drive domestic terrorism:  the first is racism," he said.  Extrapolating from the fact the term "racism" is never formally defined in the document outside of the idea of White supremacy, Giordano noted that the Biden administration and its political allies include people who believe racism is "inherent" from birth.

If Biden Wants to Paint Trump Supporters as 'Domestic Terrorists,' Ich Bin Ein Inländischer Terroristischen.  Since 20 January 2021, the Hologram's administration has been moving inexorably to curtail the freedoms and liberties of Trump supporters and American patriots in ways that are eerily similar to the pressures exerted by the Soviets on the Allies and German people after World War II:
  •   Just one day after the 6 January occupation of Capitol Hill by rioters, The Hologram himself declared those people to be "domestic terrorists" prior to the completion of any investigation into the matter and set the tone for the persecution that was to come:  [Tweet]
  •   On his very first day in office, The Hologram "directed his national security team to lead a 100-day comprehensive review of U.S. Government efforts to address domestic terrorism."
  •   The 6 January riot at the Capitol was labeled by the Democrat-media complex as an "armed insurrection" despite the FBI's eventual admission that no guns were found among the protestors.
  •   The Democrat-controlled House rushed to impeach President Trump for "inciting the 6 January insurrection" (thankfully, cooler heads prevailed in the US Senate).
  •   DOJ and the FBI launched one of the "largest investigations in American history" to examine the events of 6 January.  Some of 6 January rioters have been incarcerated in the equivalent of solitary confinement while awaiting charges and disposition of their cases. These unfortunate people are uniformly labeled as "domestic terrorists" by leftists on social media.
  •   A purge of "white nationalists and white supremacists" is underway in the US military.  The definitions are elastic.
  •   A Stasi-like committee has been formed in DoD to "investigate" extremist infiltration of the military.  Surely the new deputy inspector general for Diversity and Inclusion and Extremism in the Military (DIEM) will be objective in investigating extremism and include BLM and Antifa in their definition?  I think not, given that the investigating committee is comprised of left-wing activists and anti-American extremists.
  •   On Tuesday [6/15/2021] the White House "released a report that designates the Jan. 6 Capitol riot a 'domestic terrorist attack' and endorses an internet purge of 'extremist' content."

Enough With the 'White Boy Domestic Terror Threat' Fiction.  [Scroll down]  Now, what happened at the Capitol was inexcusable.  It was not, however, an insurrection.  It was a riot.  The Democrats and the MSM had just spent six months avoiding that word at all costs, so perhaps they'd simply forgotten what it means.  I'll play fair here:  If they want to call the January 6 rioting "terrorism," then we have to brand Antifa and Black Lives Matter as terrorist organizations too.  Given the extent and cost in property and lives of the havoc they've been wreaking since last May, both groups are far and away the more significant terror threats facing us right now.  Sadly, rather than be serious about keeping the country safe, President Puppet wants to play a game of semantics in order to purge more than 74 million Americans from the national political conversation. [...] The biggest threat to freedom right now is a government that's being run by rabid, un-American ideologues who are using an isolated incident to wage a protracted war against anyone who disagrees with them.

Alberta Pastor Jailed Again After Police Helicopter Finds Secret Church Gathering.  A Baptist pastor in Calgary, Alberta, was arrested a second time Monday after a police helicopter discovered where his church had been secretly gathering since authorities locked their building.  Pastor Tim Stephens of Fairview Baptist Church also debated the legal and theological grounds of Alberta's public health orders with the arresting officer, who quoted Jesus twice before driving the pastor to jail while his young children wept.  According to exclusive footage of the incident recorded by Rebel News (video below), officers showed up at Stephens' home to arrest him for allegedly violating a court order by leading an outdoor church service with hundreds of other Christians on June 6.

Biden's Domestic Terror Agenda Confirms Conservatives' Worst Fears.  On Tuesday [6/15/2021], President Joe Biden released a blueprint for his New War on Terror.  In the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," the Biden White House pledges that the administration will combat domestic terrorism "while vigilantly safeguarding peaceful expression of a wide range of views and freedom of political association."  Yet the administration's biases give conservatives good reason to doubt this pledge.  The White House claims that the "two most lethal elements" of domestic terrorism are "racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists who advocate for the superiority of the white race" and "anti-government or anti-authority violent extremists, such as militia violent extremists."

The Editor says...
Joe Biden (or whoever wrote this "blueprint") wants to crack down on the Oath Keepers and the John Birch Society while letting the Islamic terrorists and Mexican gangs do as they please.

Joe Biden Declares War on 'Misinformation' to Prevent Domestic Terrorism.  The White House on Tuesday [6/15/2021] announced an effort to fight "misinformation," arguing it was responsible for radicalizing domestic terrorists in the United States.  "We must work to root out the hatreds that can too often drive violence," President Joe Biden said in a statement expressing the need to take "short-term steps to counter the very real threats of today."  Biden and his administration plan to "counter the polarization often fueled by disinformation, misinformation, and dangerous conspiracy theories online" as part of "supporting an information environment that fosters healthy democratic discourse," according to a fact sheet released to reporters.

The Editor says...
[#1] Who decides when information is mis-information?  [#2] Biden wants "an information environment that fosters healthy democratic discourse," which means he wants to eliminate libertarian and conservative discourse.  [#3] How many domestic terrorists are "radicalized" by what they read on the internet?  I'm guessing the answer is approximately zero.  Certainly not enough cases to justify a government takeover of the internet.

Briefly Noted:  Lockdowns All The Way Down?  ZeroHedge is republishing an interesting piece from Off-Guardian.  The idea is that our Globalist masters, having succeeded with the Covid lockdown — confirmed to their satisfaction that the public can be gaslighted into compliance with almost any restrictions on freedom — are now considering rebranding the Covid lockdown as a Climate lockdown: [...] There's little to no actual science behind any of it, as we've seen for years of one fomented panic after another.

Former Biden Coronavirus Adviser:  Pandemic Was Worse Because Americans Didn't Sacrifice Enough.  Andy Slavitt was Joe Biden's senior adviser to the COVID response team.  He just stepped down from the position last week and now has a new book he's hawking on all the networks, [...] What a coincidence, I'm sure that his leaving isn't at all timed to coincide with the book coming out.  Did it factor into his joining the administration?  This is just wrong to try to profit off the pandemic with a book.  Yes, he's no longer with the Biden team but that doesn't make it any less scummy.  But on top of that all, he's now trying to hype the book by lying about President Donald Trump and actually disparaging the American people.

FBI warns QAnon conspiracy theorists may engage in 'real world violence'.  The FBI has warned that more QAnon conspiracy theorists may be driven to violence and even feel obligated to attack Democrats they believe to be members of a purported cabal of satanic child traffickers.  The predictions appear in an unclassified, two-page threat assessment on QAnon prepared by the FBI and U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Office of Intelligence and Analysis that became public Monday [6/14/2021].  The assessment, dated June 4, said the involvement of QAnon adherents in the storming of the U.S. Capitol "will continue to act as a catalyst for some to begin accepting the legitimacy of violent action."

FBI Triggers Politically Strategic Narrative, Highlights Q-Anon Supporters as Domestic Violent Extremists.  The left-wing extremist Saul Alinsky famously instructed his radical followers on the best way to attack their political opposition.  Alinsky told his communist crew to "Isolate, Ridicule and Marginalize" their opponents.  In the decades since those first Rules for Radicals were published the instructions have been used and adapted on a continual basis by a growing faction inside the Democrat apparatus.  President Barack Obama then brought an entire cabinet of people who followed those instructions into the federal government and they spread out like fertilizer over the seeded embeds within every institution.  After twelve years of the Obama-led operatives purging a replacing people within government with like-minded followers the cancer of left-wing radicalism metastasized.

An Explanation of Tactics to Fundamentally Transform America.  [Brannon] Howse's documentary contemporizes [Yuri] Bezmenov's warning.  It sets out the twelve-step process of brainwashing aimed at effecting a Marxist revolution in America and illustrates it using events from the coronavirus pandemic.  The twelve steps are:  1) removing principled leadership;  2) encouraging the questioning of values, convictions, and the American worldview;  3) presenting a revisionist history that portrays the free market system as oppressive;  4) propagating moral relativity to cloud the distinction between right and wrong;  5) extolling consensus and collectivism while declaring individualism dangerous;  6) focusing on emotions over facts, reason, and context;  7) fostering anxiety, confusion, social turbulence;  8) concealing the ultimate agenda;  9) using trusted individuals and institutions to enhance credibility;  10) using informants to zero in on those who don't comply;  11) rewarding compliance and punishing dissent; and  12) winning public trust by manufacturing chaos to lay the groundwork for a benevolent-seeming rescue.  With the advent of the Chinese-origin coronavirus, many of those steps were played out as if from a manual — all in the name of "flattening the curve" and ensuring that hospitals are not "overwhelmed."

The DOD's 'Extremism' Working Group Confirms Fears of a Free-Speech Crackdown.  On Wednesday [6/9/2021], First Liberty Institute General Counsel Mike Berry participated in the Department of Defense's (DOD) Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG).  Berry, a former active-duty Marine Corps officer, told PJ Media that the meeting confirmed some of the fears he had expressed in March, specifically about how the military's crackdown on "extremism" threatens service members' free speech.

Our Government Is Evolving into Something Horrifying.  Overall, the key objectives of the current Democratic Party and the Biden administration, with the assistance of these elitist groups, is to undermine the foundations of our country as founded.  They are actively working to replace our political system with one that imposes upon the American people a government empowered to be involved in our lives to a degree that will eventually include dictating our personal thoughts and daily activities.  These groups work vigorously on an ongoing basis and in a coordinated fashion, attacking and devaluing our history, our democratic practices, and our traditions to place us behind a new American version of an Iron Curtain.

The New Domestic War on Terror Has Already Begun — Even Without the New Laws Biden Wants.  Pending Domestic War on Terror legislation favored by the White House — sponsored by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) — would simply amend the old War on Terror laws, which permitted a wide range of powers to fight foreign terrorist organizations, so as to now allow the U.S. government to also use those powers against groups designated as domestic terror organizations.  Just as was true of the first War on Terror, this second one would thus vest the government with new, wide-ranging powers of surveillance, detention, prosecution and imprisonment, though this time for use against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil.  Even while that legislation is pending, the U.S. government is already waging an aggressive new domestic war on terror that has largely flown under the radar.  Grave warnings from DHS are now just as common, vague and unreliable — but also fear-inducing — as they were in the days of Tom Ridge.  Domestic surveillance is also on the rise.

Joe Biden: 'Terrorism from White Supremacy' the 'Most Lethal Threat to the Homeland'.  President Joe Biden asserted Tuesday that terrorism from white supremacy was "the most lethal threat" facing the United States.  Biden spoke about the threat of white supremacy during a speech in Tulsa marking the 100th anniversary of the 1921 race massacre in the Greenwood neighborhood.  "According to the intelligence community, terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today," Biden said.  "Not ISIS.  Not Al Qaeda.  White supremacists."

The Editor says...
How many white supremacists have you ever met?  I'm guessing the answer is zero.  Joe Biden says they're the country's most lethal threat, so there must be a bunch of them.  Where do they meet?  Somewhere on the internet, there must be a long list of places they've attacked and the names of all the non-whites they've killed.  There would also be a web site where additional white supremacists could sign up.  For a group that's so-o-o-o-o dangerous, they sure keep a low profile.

Feds say employers can require workers to get COVID vaccine.  Employers are allowed under federal law to require workers to get a COVID-19 vaccine before they can physically return to the workplace, according to updated guidance issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Friday [5/28/2021].  But they must provide "reasonable accommodations" for workers who refuse the shots because of a disability — including pregnancy — or for religious reasons, the agency said.  The decision may mean unvaccinated employees could be required to wear masks, or to work remotely.  The EEOC's rules also gave the green light to companies offering incentives as a means of encouraging staffers to get vaccinated, as long as the perks are "not so substantial as to be coercive."

The Editor says...
If they can require a Covid-19 vaccine, they could also require you to get a flu shot, or take pills, or submit to any number of other medical treatments.

Get vaccine or be fired? Federal agency affirms companies can force employees to get vaccinated.  The federal government says businesses can mandate that employees get vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter their workplace, and offer incentives for receiving the vaccine.  Meanwhile, legal experts affirmed that being fired for refusing the vaccine is generally legal.  The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released updated guidance Friday explaining that vaccine mandates do not generally violate equal employment regulations.  "The federal EEO laws do not prevent an employer from requiring all employees physically entering the workplace to be vaccinated for COVID-19, subject to the reasonable accommodation provisions of Title VII and the ADA and other EEO considerations discussed below," the agency said.  "These principles apply if an employee gets the vaccine in the community or from the employer."

Time for a Coalition of Free American States.  [Scroll down]  Have no fear.  We have an Intelligence Community in America that is keeping everyone safe by reading all of our emails and text messages, spying on our phone calls, and generally making sure that any American objecting to the State-enforced political correctness struggle sessions of the day be added to the government's growing list of "extremists."  The same bunch of propagandists who could be counted on to push the Russia hoax for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and who will now make sure that the origins of the Wuhan Virus get covered up for the political benefit of Joe Biden, are the wizards who regularly engage in national disinformation campaigns against the American people for their own good.  Was the CIA lying about Russian bounties being paid for the killing of American soldiers in Afghanistan in order to manipulate White House policy?  Sure.  Is military intelligence pushing UFO sightings today to distract the American people from emerging crises on the horizon?  Maybe.  Is there any check whatsoever on the powers of the Intelligence Community?  Not likely.  Does anyone in Congress seem to care?  Nope.

'Dangerous' New Wave of Censorship Culminating in the US: Dershowitz.  The removal of Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier from the U.S. Space Force this month after he publicly stated his opposition to Marxism and critical race theory is part of a broader, more dangerous new wave of censorship that is culminating in the United States, says constitutional expert Alan Dershowitz.  In an interview with Epoch TV's "Crossroads," Dershowitz, a former Harvard Law School professor, expressed concern over Lohmeier's dismissal, as well as other incidents such as the removal of former President Donald Trump from Twitter, Facebook, and other Big Tech platforms in January following the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.  The Space Force on May 19 relieved Lohmeier from the 11th Space Warning Squadron over allegations that he was "politically partisan" when he denounced the spread of Marxism in the military during an interview.

Ontario is now handing out tickets for shaking hands.  As a Michigander, I live pretty [...] close to the new totalitarian nightmare that is Canada.  Having lived under Queen Gretchen's thumb for the past year, one of the only positives has been looking across the Detroit river and feeling sorry for the citizens of Ontario.  If you're wondering just how far our neighbors to the north have descended into lunacy, they are now issuing tickets for shaking hands.

Bloomberg Columnist:  We May Have To Force People To Get Vaccinated.  So much for "my body, my choice."  The authoritarianism of Michael Bloomberg and his flunkies is on full display in a new column at the anti-gun billionaire's personal news network, where columnist Clara Ferreira Marques argues that personal choice and responsibility should take a back seat to government coercion and brute force when it comes to vaccines.  Sticking a needle in people's arms against their will may be "unpalatable," says Marques, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't happen if large numbers of Americans refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine on their own.

House passes $1.9 billion Capitol security measure creating permanent National Guard force.  The House on Thursday narrowly passed a nearly $2 billion spending package to bolster security in the Capitol in the wake of the destructive and deadly Jan. 6 riot.  Most Republicans opposed the measure, which passed 213-212, with three Democratic members voting "present" and three opposing the bill.  GOP lawmakers cited duplicative spending and objected to a provision that adds the National Guard to the Capitol security force.  It passed a day after Democrats and 35 Republicans voted to create a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 riot.

It's Not About The Masks:  It's About The Power.  Masks are just another form of power.  The forms of power are unlimited.  Being able to tell you to recycle, to check your privilege, to check this box on this questionnaire are all forms of power.  There are legitimate policy issues that are important for their own sake, but it's also important to recognize a larger trend in which manufacturing compliance and getting people to do anything is itself the point.  A lot of the things that the Left wants people to do really don't matter in and of themselves.  They matter because they can get people to do it.  Compliance is a pattern.  Totalitarian societies drift that way because people become used to obeying.  They don't ask questions.  And they learn to resent those who do.

12 Lessons Learned from Covid-19.  [#1]  Government will use any crisis to take away your rights and give themselves more control, and once you relinquish those rights, you don't get them back.  We are [more than a year] into "15 days to slow the spread" and we still have lockdowns, business restrictions, empty sports stadiums, mask mandates, and other arbitrary, anti-common sense rules that aren't backed by results or science data.  Mask mandates have been in place in nearly every state for months, yet we haven't seen any significant correlational infection rate reduction, certainly not enough to offset the negative health & psychological effects of masks, not to mention their ability to ruin the enjoyment of almost any activity.  Are we going to be forced to wear masks the rest of our lives if we don't find an effective vaccine?  The "new normal" is code for "you're never getting your rights back."

Understanding and Embracing the Role of the 21St-Century American Dissident.  There is a need for the realization that, regardless of our numbers, we are no longer on equal footing with those in control.  We are now dissidents!  We do not have the same voice as our ever-strengthening oppressors, and we do not have the same rights that they enjoy.  As to our being cast in the role of dissidents, we have no choice.  How we conduct ourselves in that role will be the difference between having a chance over the long term to ultimately prevail or having to spend a century or more under the totalitarian's thumb.  We need to understand the role we are in, the most effective course of action we can take, and above all, we must understand and accept our limitations.  A failure to understand and accept limitations will only deepen and prolong our subjugation. [...] People forget that in the early days of Soviet Russia, the country was considered to be a utopian model for many in the West.  The efforts of dissidents like these told the world a different story.  More importantly, it taught their countrymen how to resist and join the fight for freedom over time.

Court Permanently Stops Gavin Newsom From Locking Down Churches.  Today, a California District Court entered an order approving Liberty Counsel's settlement of the lawsuit on behalf of Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry against California Gov. Gavin Newsom.  The full and final settlement was approved today the District Court and thus is the first state-wide permanent injunction in the country against COVID restrictions on churches and places of worship.  Once entered by the District Court, this full settlement will be the first state-wide permanent injunction in the country against COVID restrictions on churches and places of worship.  Under the agreed state-wide permanent injunction, all California churches may hold worship without discriminatory restrictions.  Under the settlement, California may no longer impose discriminatory restrictions upon houses of worship.  The governor must also pay Liberty Counsel $1,350,000 to reimburse attorney's fees and costs.

Vaccine passports blasted as 'stealth move to tyranny'.  The chief of a Minnesota-based health freedom organization is warning about those coming COVID vaccine passports.  They're already commonly being promoted as a fast way for people to gain access to public facilities, airlines and more — with the "passport" confirmation they've taken one of the emergency-use COVID vaccines.  Some states, however, have preemptively acted, creating bans on the public display of private health information.

Jailed Alberta Pastor Released On Bail; Recounts Harsh Imprisonment And Blasts 'Evil' Canadian Politicians.  Pastor Artur Pawlowski, whose arrest for holding church services in defiance of Alberta's Public Health Act drew international attention, recounted his harrowing experience in jail and reiterated his warning to Canadians about growing state tyranny.  Pawlowski, who was released on bail earlier this week, detailed to Rebel News how he was allegedly mistreated by some of the police and prison guards, who he claims physically abused him, mocked his Christian faith, and kept him from talking to his lawyer.

Vaccination is required for participation in a public school activity:
New York School District Says Students Must Show Proof of Vaccination or Negative COVID Test to Attend Prom and Graduation.  Massena Central High School in New York is requiring students to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID tests in order to attend prom or graduation.  The school's principal, Alan C. Oliver, has given seniors a deadline for getting the vaccine in order to be clear to attend.  "The prom is scheduled for June 12.  Graduation has been scheduled for June 25, with a rain date of June 26.  Anyone attending those events must show proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 testing," NNY360 reports.

Dad Facing Jail Time, Banned From Kids' School For Refusing Mask Outside:  If I Have To Sue, I Will.  As reported by The Daily Wire, Rochester, New York father Chad Hummel was arrested last week and charged with criminal trespassing at his son's high school baseball game after he refused to put on a mask, even though the game was outdoors and he was far outside the recommended six-feet social distancing guidance.  Hummel spoke to The Daily Wire on Thursday [5/13/2021] and offered context to the arrest, arguing that he has been specifically targeted by the school due to his past pushback against arbitrary COVID guidance and critical race theory curricula affecting his children.

Tucker Carlson Torches Biden's Mask 'Ultimatum'.  President Joe Biden's declaration Thursday that the unvaccinated would have to continue wearing masks didn't sit well with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who made it abundantly clear that such an "ultimatum" was not "within his powers to demand."  Biden, responding to the Centers for Disease Control's announcement Thursday that vaccinated individuals would no longer need to mask up even in indoor settings, tweeted what he considered a "simple" choice for Americans.  "The rule is now simple:  get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do," Biden (or whoever handles his social media account) wrote.  "The choice is yours."

Semper Tyrannus — Always a Tyrant.  In the information security business, there is a saying that security by obscurity is no security at all — meaning hiding from hackers is not a winning security strategy.  The parallel to this in politics is anonymity is freedom.  In other words, I am free as long as the tyrant doesn't know I exist.  The reality, however, is one can never get small enough or anonymous enough to be free from evil when evil rules the land.  Freedom through anonymity is not real freedom — it's merely an illusion.  Illusions are the bread and butter of the tyrant — for if the masses knew the truth they would be ungovernable and the tyrant's life would be, in Hobbesian terms, a nasty, brutish, and short affair.  Because of this, the tyrant strives to keep the necessary illusions alive in the minds of the common people.  One of the biggest illusions traditional America clings to right now is that it still retains constitutional rights recognized and respected by its government in Washington, D.C.

Oregon Police Officer Under Investigation For Extremist Views — Infraction:  He Carried 'Molon Labe' Key Chain.  The attacks against police; and the attacks against patriotism that connects the social fabric to respecting law and order; are reaching new levels.  The tools and techniques being deployed by Marxist BLM activists are increasingly infiltrating the police units.  The leftists are creating new and ridiculous definitions of what constitutes "extremism" and/or "far right" extremist expression.  This latest example is a case study in using Alinsky weaponizing methods to attack language.

Halt Vaccine Passports!  It is very important that people understand what is happening here.  The intention is to introduce vaccine passports everywhere.  But this is a disguise.  It's a world's first digital common-format, globally-interoperable ID system with an editable health flag (vaccinated Y or N).  It makes no one safer.  If you're vaccinated, you're protected & are not made safer by knowing others immune status.  As in Israel, you will be compelled to present a valid VaxPass in order to access defined facilities or access services.  No VaxPass, you're denied.  This system only needs 50%+ of the adult population to start up because of its huge, coercive power on the unvaccinated.  It's illegal, medical apartheid.

Dramatic Video Shows SWAT Team Arresting Pastor for 'Inciting' People to Attend Church.  It's not getting much play right now, but Canada is an absolute mess.  In some parts of the country, the tyrannical mitigation measures put in place by the government to supposedly combat COVID-19 are so bad that they'd make New York blush.  A dramatic new video has just been released by independent, conservative journalist Ezra Levant of Rebel News showing the arrest of a Christian pastor for "inciting" people to go to church.  Apparently, a SWAT team was used to arrest him after he left his church service.  The churchgoers had initially expelled the police from the church building, but they returned in force.  That led to this dramatic encounter, on what looks like a highway, where Pastor Artur Pawlowski and his brother were taken into custody.  [Video clip]

Calgary police finally got their revenge against Pastor Pawlowski.  Pastor Artur Pawlowski, a resident of Calgary, Canada, has been a thorn in the flesh of Alberta Health Services (which is the equivalent of an American state's health services) since the Covid pandemic began.  Pastor Pawlowski had the temerity to believe that the Canadian Constitution meant it when it said that everyone has a fundamental freedom of conscience, religion, and peaceful assembly.  When the government tried to shut him down over a virus with an average 98% survival rate, he vociferously resisted.  The government got its revenge yesterday [5/8/2021].  Canada has been extraordinarily aggressive in policing its citizens over a virus that has a 98% survival rate.  People who have traveled overseas must stay in designated hotels, where they get abysmal service, for prices that would keep someone comfortably at the Ritz in New York, back in pre-Covid days.

Canada's War on Christians: Police Arrest Pastor for Opening Church; Mosques Operating.  Pastor Artur Pawlowski gained international attention last month for expelling officials from his church in a viral video.  A Canadian Pastor who escaped communism in Poland has been arrested for holding church services during a coronavirus lockdown in Calgary, Canada.  Earlier this month, the Muslim mayor of Calgary Naheed Nenshi called for ramping up punishments for "flagrant" coronavirus lockdown measures.  "You know, these real flagrant violators — Pastor Coates sat in jail for a month — so what do we have to do to make sure we are going after these real flagrant violators?," he asked.  [Video clip]

Man Is Detained And Children Taken Away After He Films Cops Shutting Down Mass In Ireland.  A man named Pat Sweeney, who video recorded the Irish police (Gardai) storming a church in Athlone, Ireland last week has had a police raid at his home at 3.30 am on May 2nd.  A Twitter user, Philip Dwyer, who have posted the series of the events that have happened with the man who recorded the church video said:  ["]Just been contacted by Pat Sweeney, the man who videoed the Gardai in a church in Athlone last week that went viral.  The Gardai have taken his two children from him last night at 3.30 am.  If you are near Longford please head to the Garda station to support him.  Please share this.["]  [Video clip]

Irish Police Break Into Man's Home and Remove His Children at 3 AM After He Films Police Barging In and Shutting Down a Catholic Mass.  The local Garda or Irish police, barged into a Catholic Mass in Athlone, Ireland last weekend and shut down the service.  As you can see from the video, the congregation was sitting rows apart, and even by crazy Dr. Fauci's standards were likely not in danger of infecting others in the church.  One man in the congregation, later identified as Pat Sweeney, decided to film the assault on this Catholic service by the state.  A couple of nights later local Garda stormed the man's home at 3 in the morning and took his children away.

Who Gets To Define What's Patriotic?  ast week, President Joe Biden said it's the patriotic duty of Americans to wear masks while outside.  Years ago, while campaigning as Barack Obama's running mate, he said it was patriotic to pay higher taxes.  It's hard to decide if these statements are more akin to the ramblings of a child or are uncomfortably similar to Third World despots who demand obedience from their subordinated citizens.  Frankly, they're both.  Making a distinction is virtually impossible.

DC Mayor Bans 'Dancing' at Indoor and Outdoor Weddings in Washington.  DC Mayor Muriel Bowser issued new guidelines for residents living in the nation's capital Monday; saying wedding parties can proceed at 25% capacity but guests should remain seated and cannot dance.  "It's insane, it's been an absolute roller coaster," says Stephanie Sadowski, a D.C. wedding planner and owner of SRS Events.  "They want to have a party.  Planning their wedding, they've made concessions along the way, they've reduced, reduced and reduced their guest count in Washington, D.C," she says.

The COVID Passport:  Fascism at Hand.  Naomi Wolf is perfectly accurate warning that the COVID Passport is an unassuming, mild, reasonable-sounding concept that will lead to untold catastrophic civic consequences.  She is way out front, and we should all pay attention to her.  The COVID Passport is the doorway to fascism in your lifetime, on your doorstep, and there may be no turning back once it happens.  Her thesis is this: the COVID Passport creates the platform on which to add all kinds of different data types (information from social media, credit card purchases, whom you were with from your geo location info on the phone) to profile every citizen and then take action against all of them.  Do not think this is far-fetched.  It has begun, and my team was at Ground Zero as it did.  [Video clip]

How Do You Like the Thought of Being Deprogrammed?  Their normal human sympathies have atrophied.  They live in the desert of their own inhuman politics.  They are cold and apparently lack a spiritual life.  Desperate to look down on other people, they take fatuity to a new level.  David Atkins, recently elected as a California member of the Democratic National Committee, mused on Twitter (Nov. 21, 2020):  "How do you deprogram 75 million people who would literally die to stick it to the domestic enemies the teevee and youtube conspiracy vids told them to hate?  No, seriously... how DO you deprogram 75 million people?  Where do you start?  Fox?  Facebook?  We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan.  Or the failures of Reconstruction in the South." [...] Katie Couric, famous TV person, reacted viscerally to this "larger question" when chatting with Bill Maher on his Real Time show (Jan. 19, 2020).  Katie confided her contempt for those who don't agree with her.  She was particularly upset with GOP congressmen.  "It's really bizarre, isn't it, when you think about how AWOL so many of these members of Congress have gotten? ... And the question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?"

Deep state or police state.  [Scroll down]  Glenn McDonald of Seeker.com warns to "look for these 10 clues when deciding if your government is repressive."  His historically researched list, written in 2013, includes:
  •   Abusing human rights;
  •   Arresting and imprisoning political dissidents;
  •   Censoring access to online content or platforms;
  •   Forbidding citizens from revealing the plight of their state-sanctioned detention;
  •   Leaders who have been in power for decades;
  •   Outlawing or curtailing political representation (read: voting);
  •   Restricting freedom of the press;
  •   Spying and reporting on neighbors to curry favor with the government;
  •   Using electronic surveillance on private citizens or businesses; and,
  •   Using internet companies to gather intelligence about individuals. When Mr. McDonald wrote his article, it was in response to leaks about the NSA spying on Americans.  Still, it's hard to imagine that a mere eight years ago, only two of his examples were explicitly about the United States.  In looking at the list today, nine readily describe the aggressive behaviors of turncoats at all levels of the American government.  Perhaps, all ten are accurate descriptors, and the evidence simply hasn't yet come to light.

Canada has an eerie 'police state' feel lately.  Canada lacks the miracle that is the United States Constitution.  Still, as befits a nation the once-free British founded, it is a country that has traditionally had a few of what we consider to be core English freedoms — freedom of speech, worship, assembly, etc.  Those concepts seem far away now, as Justin Trudeau and the various provincial and municipal governments use COVID as an excuse to crack down on those liberties.  I've written before about Canada's draconian and expensive hotel rule for people returning by air from overseas travel.  It's gotten so bad that people are flying into the U.S. and driving to their home country to avoid the hotel restriction.

How Much Worse Can it Get?  The Democrats under the "Biden" administration have shed any last vestiges of pretense surrounding their desire to utterly remake the United States into some idealized version of their socialistic, utopian land where all the inhabitants' lives are totally controlled and orchestrated by an all-knowing, benevolent government — for the supposed good of the individual, of course. [...] Here's the progressive wish list:
  [#1]   Control the media and thus manipulate the exact message you want the voting public to receive.
  [#2]   Continue to have elections, to maintain the appearance of national self-determination.
  [#3]   Rig those elections in your favor and howl with protest when you're caught doing so.  The media will cover for you and forestall any serious fraud inquires, preserving your stolen elections.  Mountains of bona fide fraud evidence will be ignored and not acted upon.
  [#4]   Admit unrestricted numbers of illegal aliens, all of whom will become your voters, permanently shifting the voter demographic in your favor.
  [#5]   Admit D.C. and Puerto Rico as states, collecting four additional progressive senators in the process.
  [#6]   Eliminate the filibuster, making a simple Senate majority sufficient for passing any initiative, so you can "eliminate debate," as one of your leading voices said so memorably.
Progressives are trying hard to do all of this, right now.  If they should achieve total control, what do they want to impose on the country?  What is their ultimate aim?

Tucker Carlson — Are US Citizens Who Attended the January 6 Protests Now on the "No Fly List"?  [Scroll down]  According to other tweets in [Nicholas J.] Fuentes' timeline, he was at O'Hare Airport earlier today [4/28/2021], attempting to board a flight on United Airlines.  When he was denied boarding, he attempted to board a flight on American Airlines — and was denied boarding there as well.  He then went to Midway Airport and tried — unsuccessfully — to board a Southwest Airlines flight.  He states that he was unable to book a flight or obtain a boarding pass at the kiosk, and was directed by an electronic message to see a Customer Service Representative for the airline.  He claims that he eventually learned that the airlines contacted TSA, and they were advised that he could not board a flight.  According to another Tweet on Fuentes' timeline, he had an encounter with an airline for not wearing what the airline considered a proper mask on December 4, 2020.  But Fuentes claimed that he took eight flights between December 4 and January 7, suggesting that the December 4 episode did not seem to hinder his travel prior to the January 6 protests.

Watch As California Official Forcibly Vaccinate Mentally Challenged People With 'Operation Homebound' Program.  In a video that will disturb most, California officials hold down mentally handicapped patients at an undisclosed home.  Those being forced to vaccinate are seen crying and even trying to escape those administering the shots, who are dressed in ironically paramilitary garb.  One young girl is seen held down on a woman's lap and forcefully injected.  [Video clip]

Dems' domestic-terror bills set their sights on peaceful right-wingers.  Top congressional Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, are pushing new laws to stamp out "domestic terrorism."  But they're targeting only right-wing organizations.  If rioters are looting and setting fires for a leftist cause, that's OK.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has a better approach.  He signed a law Monday that guarantees violent protesters who destroy property or attack cops land in jail.  Regardless of how virtuous their cause.  Unfortunately, Democrats aren't interested in ensuring the public has peace and safety.  Instead, their goal is to label even peaceful right-leaning groups domestic terrorists and put them out of business.  That's un-American.

A Rigged System Can't Last.  You can't win, but that's all part of the plan.  Reason, rules, processes — these are the foundations of a free society, which is why the cultural left is so dead set against them.  A citizen needs to be able to rely on clear rules and fixed processes to vindicate his rights in order to have any rights.  But the rights of free citizens — your rights — are an obstacle to the Lil' Stalins who yearn to rule over us.  If the liberal establishment can create a society where you can't appeal to facts, evidence, or law, then — until the peasants' revolt — its poobahs can wield undisputed, undiluted authority.  That's their dream, a country where you live in terror of them because you can never be sure that what you are doing or failing to do is suddenly going to be criminalized.

Gretchen Whitmer's Crumbling Kingdom.  Last Christmas, Governor Gretchen Whitmer released one of the wildest, most mind-warping videos I've ever seen.  It begins with her shouting, "Thank you for joining us!!" over a Zoom call, before introducing none other than Santa Claus.  Several scripted and possibly terrified children then prompt Santa to talk about how he wears a mask at the North Pole and uses hand sanitizer before eating cookies, all while Whitmer hovers imperiously in the corner like some yuletide Big Brother.  The video ends with her gently informing the tykes that this year they won't be able to visit their grandparents for the holidays.  Watching that, I kept expecting the Soviet national anthem to start playing or Whitmer's eyes to turn into rotating swirls.

The government has to make an example of somebody, to make the rest of us get in line and submit.
Albert Lea wine bar owner, wanted in alleged COVID violations, says she will turn herself in if conditions are met.  Lisa Hanson, an Albert Lea wine bar owner charged with violating COVID-related restrictions, said from an undisclosed location Friday [4/23/2021] that she had no plans to turn herself in until authorities agree to several conditions.  Among those conditions, she said, is getting served by the sheriff with "the proper summons with the charges."  She added that "jurisdiction must be established by the court."  But Freeborn County Sheriff Kurt Freitag said Hanson "is in no position to be making conditions," and called her description of a phone conversation she had with him "lunacy."  Hanson's defiance has caused a small uproar in Albert Lea, a city of 17,400 near the Iowa border where her Interchange Wine and Coffee Bistro is located.  She faces nine misdemeanor criminal counts, each carrying penalties of up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Ontario attempts to go full police state, with police authorized to question and potentially detain you if you leave your house.  Nothing to see here, just our friends to the north trying to suspend liberty and turn the entire province of Ontario into the world's biggest, if most polite, prison camp. [...] In order to effectuate the order, authorities are hoping to turn their police force into a kind of hybrid of prison guards and parole officers.

The marks of the beasts.  The Mark of the Beast from Christian theology is a widely known concept.  This mysterious mark and the symbolism in the book of Revelation have even made their way into popular culture and entertainment.  Many things have been suspected as this mark including Social Security numbers, UPC bar codes, QR codes, and Real ID.  The scary risks of a government placing a mandatory mark on people is not a far-fetched idea.  Throughout history, tyrants and totalitarians have marked people for exclusion and inclusion.  It is easy to imagine a government that would require a marked population to participate in commerce while excluding the unmarked.  It has been done before. [...] We find ourselves in a time in which there are multiple new candidates for government marking.  At the forefront is the proposed Vaccine Passport.  In the most controlling scenario, to fully participate in society, we will need to show our passport as proof that we have been vaccinated against COVID-19.  Those without the mark would be excluded.  In an interesting mix of competing potential marks, implementation would use QR codes on our phones.

H.R. 1 Is the Pillow Over the Face of Federalism.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton rightly notes the bill would "federalize state elections."  He observes that the founders, "intentionally excluded Congress and gave state legislatures the authority to run state elections....  The Act opens elections in every state to widespread fraud, mixed messaging, Constitutional violations, and shuttering of speech."  I regret to inform Paxton — along with governors and other officials in many red states who object to the bill — that, in key respects, this fight was already lost more than 100 years ago, with the passage of the 17th Amendment.  That amendment provided for the direct election of senators by popular vote, replacing the founders' plan for having state legislatures choose members of the U.S. Senate.  The system prior to the direct election of senators certainly had its problems. [...] Nevertheless, far more was lost than was gained by cutting the state governments out of the process altogether.  It is not too much to say that direct election of senators — ratified in 1913 — mortally wounded federalism.

Ontario Canada Goes into Full-Blown Police State to Lockdown Over COVID, Complete With Admitted Stasi.  Comrades, the Canadian Ministry of COVID compliance has initiated a complete and total lockdown of Ontario.  Premier Doug Ford alerts comrade citizens they will be stopped, questioned and searched if they are out of their home.  The lockdown is absolute and complete with checkpoints, suspension of civil rights laws and the implementation of a provincial Stasi authority for police to act as enforcement officers for the state.  Do not be alarmed Canadian comrades.  Currently the Ontario enforcement units are not allowed to use deadly force for violations by non-compliant citizens.  The state will determine your economic and social freedom based on your compliance.  The Ontario COVID ministry appreciates your compliance in avoiding the dangerous virus freedom zones; and is thankful for compliant citizens who do not question the complex data analysis that goes into regional scientific tracking systems.

Globalists Will Need Another Crisis In America As Their Reset Agenda Fails.  It might sound like "US exceptionalism" to point this out, but even if the globalist Reset is successful in every other nation on Earth, the globalists are still failures if they can't secure and subjugate the American people.  As I've noted many times in the past, most of the world has been sufficiently disarmed, and even though we are seeing resistance in multiple European nations against forced vaccination legislation and medical tyranny, it is unlikely that they will have the ability to actually repel a full on march into totalitarianism.  Most of Asia, India and Australia are already well under control.  Africa is almost an afterthought, considering Africa is where many suspect vaccines are tested.  America represents the only significant obstacle to the agenda. [...] There are people on this planet that are not satisfied to merely live their lives, take care of their families and make their mark peacefully.  They crave power over all else.  They desperately want control over you, over me, over everything, and they will use any means at their disposal to get it.

'Vaccine Passports': A Trojan Horse To Further Shrink Your Rights?  By far, the worst idea for a post-COVID-19 "reset" is the vaccine passport.  The idea is that anyone who wants to travel, attend a concert or sports event, go to the theater, hold a family gathering, or perhaps even eat in a restaurant will need a "passport" proving they're COVID-19 Clean.  Who knew that authoritarianism would show up wearing a white medical smock?  Don't worry.  They'll tell you that it's all for your safety.  The bogey-man, er, virus, is ready to spring at you again from the dark.  But you really must be able to prove that you're worthy of the privileges of open society before you can take part.  That means vaccine passports.  And, yes, it's being considered, despite White House claims to the contrary.

Our Lost Liberties.  If one can say the pandemic has had any positive side effect, it has been to help us focus on what the loss of liberties looks like.  Such losses do not occur immediately but erode over time as people become increasingly comfortable with government claiming to know what is best for us.  The Biden administration is proceeding on a downward spiral that has ended in lost liberties in nations of the past by seizing increasing amounts of power for itself through a slew of executive orders, without the consent of the people, or Congress.  When announcing his gun control executive orders last week, President Joe Biden referenced the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms.  He claimed his orders do not infringe on that right, but added, "No amendment is absolute."  That is concerning.  He also announced the appointment of a Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court.  A White House press release sought to obscure its real goal — court-packing.

Defense Department's 'extremists' happen to look exactly like Trump voters.  The Biden administration is on the offensive against extremism.  However, it is having trouble defining the term.  The newly installed defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, has signed a memo ordering several "immediate actions," including military-wide "stand downs," to weed out "extremism" in the ranks of the military.  Actions also included a review of and update to the DoD's definition of extremism and a review and standardization of the screening questionnaire — "[t]o solicit specific information about current or previous extremist behavior, and to clarify that any demonstrably false answers provided in response could form the basis for punitive action for fraudulent enlistment."  Defense officials said the Pentagon is reversing Trump-era policies that banned transgender people from serving in the military.  The Pentagon will also issue new rules that will broaden transgender people's access to medical care and cosmetic surgery to imitate members of the opposite sex.  Opposition to these policies may be considered extremist.

50 Armed Police Raid Rebel News Reporters Airbnb, Arrest Them for 'Illegal Gathering'.  Approximately fifty heavily armed police raided the hotel where Rebel News reporters were staying in Montreal on Saturday [4/10/2021].  Rebel News reporters Keean Bexte and David Menzies have been detained.  The Canadian conservative outlet said in a statement that "police have sealed off the AirBnb we were staying in with police tape — they say it's a 'crime scene.'"  "Of course it's not.  In fact, when we asked them what the 'crime' was, all they could come up with was that our staying in the hotel was an illegal 'gathering,' contrary to Quebec's lockdown laws," the statement continued.

A Rebel With a Cause, The Battle of Tinhorn Flats.  Tinhorn Flats is the oldest bar in Burbank.  In March of 2020 they shut down in compliance with state guidelines.  They reopened in November 2020, and when the second lockdown was announced their defiance began.  Burbank authorities first cited and fined Tinhorn Flats.  Lucas refused to pay and stayed open.  Burbank authorities cut their utilities.  Lucas brought in generators and stayed open.  Burbank authorities Red tagged his restaurant and locked the doors.  Lucas cut the locks and reopened.  Burbank authorities boarded up the doors and 'red tagged' again as unsafe.  Lucas sawed off the boards and reopened his business.  Burbank police then arrested Lucas.  Lucas made bail and was released.  Regular protests then began to support Lucas.

Pentagon Orders Updated Screening of Military to Identify "Extremist" Outlooks.  Let me be clear:  I fully expect to see the standing U.S. military deployed against any state who stands up against unconstitutional federal demands.  I have made this assertion since the jaw-dropping revelations about the Pentagon during the first impeachment effort in August 2019 and the lack of leadership from the military in removing Lt. Col Alexander Vindman from his compromised position. [...] The majority of the U.S. military rank and file are patriots; America-first nationalists with a patriotic outlook toward the United States as a constitutional republic.  The majority of the military also come from red states.  This is an identified risk to the Obama objective of fundamental change.  Additionally, thanks in large part to a purge during the Obama era, the majority of the flag officers are not in alignment with the rank and file.  This sets the stage for a problem.

How Will the Pentagon Define 'Extremism'?  Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is determined to root out "extremism" from the ranks of the military. [...] But Austin has a huge problem.  He has to be able to define "extremism" in such a way as to safeguard our constitutional liberties while rooting out the skinheads, the Klan members, the gangbangers, and violent revolutionaries that make up a small but significant fraction of the armed forces.  What is "extremism"?  What is "extremist ideology"?  Who can be considered "an extremist"?  Is there any definition of "extremism" that isn't subjective?  What criteria will be used to determine who is "extreme"?  Anti-abortion?  Anti-gay marriage?  Devout Christianity?

The missing mandate behind Biden's grandiose plans.  If you are a political leader who wishes to effect "fundamental change" during your lifetime, there are only two ways to achieve that goal: receiving a massive electoral mandate or, failing that, using the government's military force against those citizens who resist fundamental change.  The Democrats, with their grandiose plans for gun control, court-packing, erasing America's sovereign border, and adding new states, are acting as if they have that mandate.  As their desperation to end the filibuster shows, they don't.  That leaves only force.

Joe Biden Said The Bill of Rights is NOT "Absolute".  Earlier today Joe Biden raised some eyebrows when he said "no amendment to the constitution is absolute."  The first ten amendments to the constitution are commonly known as "The Bill of Rights."  The occupant of the oval office, and head of the executive branch, saying the Bill of Rights is not absolute, should be challenged immediately to qualify that statement.

Biden Declares Second Amendment Not 'Absolute'.  In a press conference Thursday, President Biden unveiled the proposed executive orders on gun control.  "Nothing I'm about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment" Biden declared.  Addressing potential opposition, Biden added, "they're phone arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights in what we're talking about."  In an immediate contradiction, Biden then stated his position that "no amendment to the Constitution is absolute."  How can you not impinge upon something that is not absolute?  Biden attempted to give an example by saying "you can't yell 'fire' in a crowded movie theater and call it freedom of speech."  As his example pertains to the Second Amendment, he said, "from the very beginning of the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren't allowed to have weapons."  Biden's administration announced six gun control initiatives.

Bill Gates, George Soros Team Up To Form Organization to Combat 'Disinformation'.  The American ruling class is now trying to fight what they are calling "misinformation" and "disinformation" on social media.  A report from NewsBusters reveals that the Aspen Institute Commission on Information is being funded by left-wing billionaires Bill Gates and George Soros, among others, to "fight 'mis- and disinformation.'" [...] It's clear that the ruling class wants to prevent Donald Trump from being the leading face of the Republican Party.  One could also argue that they want to prevent the rise of another Donald Trump.

Cops Swarm Another Canadian Church for COVID Defiance and the Woke Crowd Cheers.  It's hard to know what's more disheartening, cops shutting down a church for daring to meet or the fear-mongering scolds cheering it on.  Worse, this is the second time in mere days that Canadian cops have attempted to intimidate a church for daring to meet with social distancing.  At dawn on Wednesday morning [4/7/2021] in Edmonton, Alberta — in an area that looks like it's the middle of a prairie — Alberta Health Services police and cops with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) swarmed the GraceLife Church to cut off the building from its parishioners.  Police and crews arrived at oh-dark-30 to erect fencing around the church property to send a message that the church would not be able to worship on site until the government gave permission.

How not to cower before the COVID police.  Visually, the video is simple but compelling.  The church is on the second story of a building with a stairway leading directly from the front door up to the place where the congregation assembles.  A masked female spokeswoman has climbed all the stairs.  Behind her are seven police officers, in uniform, and all heavily armed with guns, cuffs, safety vests, and the ubiquitous and useless cheap paper masks.  The woman is trying to speak but there is a voice from behind the camera that thunders "Get out!" No matter what she says, he tells her some variation of "Out!  And don't come back unless you have a warrant." [...]   [Video clip] [...] As for the rest of us, the window of time within which we can act with courage and integrity (and, you'll note, without violence or threats) is closing fast.  If we wait too long, all action will be illegal.

London Has Fallen As Boris'Jackboot Thugs Declare Good Friday Mass As Unlawful.  This lunatic Boris is hell-bent on turning the entire country into a police state in the name of COVID, using cops to take away all human and civil rights of freedom to move, worship etc.  We may have hit the bottom here as London cops barge into Good Friday service and declare it an UNLAWFUL event.  [Video clip]

8 Ways Public Schools Could Further Radicalize When They Finally Re-open.  I think we can infer eight negative outcomes down the pike after a long period of politicized school closures that were never justified by medical science.  I imagine our ruling elites will be happy with such outcomes.  We should be prepared for the following.  [#1] Even More Peer Pressure to Conform:  Our famine of social connection will likely spark a greater tolerance for blind conformity.  There has been a mass starvation for peer connection among students.  Many have been numbed by the drudgery of online learning with no outlets through sports and clubs, no human contact with teachers and peers.  Parents are also starving for a place their kids can engage with others during the workday.  So might they now be willing to swallow anything for some relief?  There's a phrase attributed to Lenin:  "The worse, the better," which means that the more misery people feel, the better it is for the success of communism (or perhaps the "great reset").  The longer people suffer in isolation, the higher the toll and more susceptible they are to depression and self-harm.  So after a long period of social deprivation, they may become far more willing to conform under the slightest of social pressures, no matter what's asked of them.

Ministry of Truth?  Gates/Soros-Funded Org Starts Leftist 'Information Disorder' Commission.  An organization backed with millions of dollars from liberal billionaires Bill Gates and George Soros has launched a commission led by radical liberals to fight "mis- and disinformation."  The commission, dubbed the Aspen Institute Commission on Information Disorder, is co-chaired by leftist Katie Couric Media founder Katie Couric.  Couric recently suggested during a segment with HBO host Bill Maher that "we" should "deprogram" people within former President Donald Trump's "cult."  The commission is also chaired by leftist Rashad Robinson, who leads the Soros-funded and racially charged Color of Change group.  Color of Change was recently behind an effort to defund police foundations.  The last co-chair, former Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Chris Krebs, had claimed that the 2020 election was "the most secure in history."  Krebs' comment earned him backlash from a senior Department of Homeland Security official, according to Fox News.

Some U.S. Military Leaders Think Some Extremism Is Better Than Others.  The Pentagon has a problem.  Troops throughout the armed forces aren't going along quietly with programming designed to educate them about "extremist" views and activities.  The problem, says military leadership, is that too many enlisted personnel are wondering why last year's violence fueled by Black Lives Matter isn't viewed by their superiors as negatively as the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this year.  "This is coming from every echelon that we're talking to," said Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Ramón Colón-López.  "Some people may think that, 'all right, so the events of 6 January happened.  How come you're not looking at the situation that was going on in Seattle prior to that?'"  Colón-López presumably means the Nakamura Federal Courthouse in Seattle, Washington.  Last summer, protestors broke into the building, burned an American flag, and graffitied the interior and exterior.  Though there were many similar cases across the country by Black Lives Matter agitators, the most important task is ensuring "military members understand the difference between Seattle and Washington, DC," Colón-López said.

The Commonalities Between the Rise of the Nazis and the Tactics of the American Left Cannot be Ignored.  [Scroll down]  Sixth, in January 1933, Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany.  Within four weeks a mysterious fire broke out in the Reichstag (Congress) Building which they blamed on communist agitators and that this was the opening salvo in a violent coup.  Using this pretext, the Nazis were able to force through the Reichstag The Enabling Act of 1933 in March of the same year.  This law embedded the Nazis as the sole dominant political party and ensured that only the Nazis could win future elections, if any were held.  They were the first modern proponents of never letting a crisis, real or manufactured, to go to waste.  The left and the Democrat party seized upon the disturbances at the Capitol on January 6, 2021 to proclaim that it was an "armed insurrection" and the opening salvo in a violent coup attempt by white supremacists.  To further reinforce this false narrative, they theatrically brought in 20,000 National Guard troops and built fortifications around the Capitol building.  Further following in the footsteps of the Nazi Party, the Democrats almost immediately pushed to pass H.R. 1 (euphemistically entitled The For The People Act) which would overturn virtually all existing voter laws, embed the Democrats as the sole dominant political party and ensure that only the Democrats could win future elections.

Our apathy is Why We are in the Situation We are in Now.  We will never be stronger than we are right now at this point in history.  Every day now they are chipping away at our freedoms and taking more control.  The left, this deep state enemy, they are united while our side can't agree on the simplest of things.  It does us no good to fight among ourselves while facing an united enemy.  Our only real disagreements seem to be about strategy.  Most people on our side don't think it is time to go hot, but they also recognize that the odds of getting out of this peacefully are shrinking by the day.

DHS Preparing to Use Private Contractors to "Scour Public Data and Social Media" To Compile Dissident Citizens for Watch and No Fly Lists.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is now getting ready to hire public companies, individual contractors outside government, to scour public data and social media in order to provide information for the new "domestic terror watch lists."  From the description it appears DHS is going to pay "big tech" (Google, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter, etc.), via contracts, to hire and organize internal monitoring teams to assist the government by sending information on citizens they deem "dangerous."

A Time to Choose.  Americans sit paralyzed, watching the fabric of a representative republic unravel before their eyes, ignoring this chain reaction while happily checking the bank account to see the latest stimulus check's arrival is but one example of national paralysis. [...] Examining the idea of traditional American values shows that they are under attack.  These values are besieged by a hostile legacy media that mocks them.  They are undermined by legislative agendas that seek to outlaw their practice.  They are belittled by popular shows in a popular culture looking to boost ratings from quick jabs at the leaders elected by traditional-minded Americans.  Just last week, a New York judge removed a child from her mother's custody because the mother — a physician — was not masked while dropping her child off at school.  The most American of traditional values — rugged individualism — wobbles on the ropes from the pummeling onslaught it receives under a carefully coordinated attack by progressives — who, of course, know best how others should behave in all circumstances.

Dem Rep. Schakowsky: 'We're Going to Regulate' Tech Companies, and There Must Be 'Limitations' on User Content.  On Thursday's [3/25/2021] broadcast of MSNBC's "All In," House Consumer Protection and Commerce Subcommittee Chairwoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) discussed the subcommittee's hearing with the CEOs of Facebook, Google, and Twitter and said that the hearing's purpose was to send the message to tech companies "That we're going to regulate.  We're going to legislate."  And that there "have to be some limitations, not just on advertising."  Schakowsky said of the hearing, "So, the purpose really was, from my point of view, to make sure that the tech companies understood that the day of self-regulation has really ended.  And that, now, it is time for us to regulate, and that we intend to.  That we're going to regulate.  We're going to legislate."

9th Circuit Rules That There Is No Right to Carry a Weapon.  If this is accepted for review by the Supreme Court — and the Supreme Court has shown itself to be extraordinarily cowardly in ducking ruling on big-ticket items — we will find out if we really have a "conservative" court, or if the lawyers recommended by the Professional Class Karens of the Federalist Society are just from the Corporate Wing of the Uniparty.  I suspect the latter.

Report: Team Biden Weighs Declaring Gun Violence a Public Health Emergency.  President Joe Biden's administration is weighing the idea of declaring gun violence as a public health emergency, in order to take dramatic executive action to tackle gun rights.  Biden officials and gun control activists discussed the idea, according to the New York Times, as well as other executive actions that could tackle gun rights nationwide.  If Biden declared a public health emergency, he could shift more funding to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to increase their inspections of gun dealerships.  It would also loosen up available funds for community gun violence programs.

Who's Actually Running This Thing?  [Scroll down]  And what can the individual citizen do?  Simple.  He can make fun of the Biden Administration.  He can tease it, mock it relentlessly, refuse to take it seriously.  This is what the Left fears most.  They cannot tolerate being laughed at.  This is why Mayor de Blasio asked just last week for New Yorkers to report "hateful" or "very hurtful" comments, so he could send the police to peoples' homes to intimidate them:  "I assure, you if an NYPD officer calls you or shows up at your door to ask about something that you did, it makes people think twice."  This is why Orwell used to say that fascism and the goose-step would never work in Britain:  because people would laugh.  Well, they've stopped laughing in Britain and Canada, where one actually can be imprisoned for expressing politically unsound views.

Biden Administration Urges Supreme Court To Let Cops Enter Homes And Seize Guns Without A Warrant.  The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday [3/24/2021] will hear oral argument in Caniglia v.  Strom, a case that could have sweeping consequences for policing, due process, and mental health, with the Biden Administration and attorneys general from nine states urging the High Court to uphold warrantless gun confiscation.  But what would ultimately become a major Fourth Amendment case began with an elderly couple's spat over a coffee mug.

The Feds' Bogus Violent Extremists.  In her first official act as Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines issued a flashing red alert to the country.  Jihadi-like Americans, especially those on the political Right, lurk among us and are plotting to commit vicious crimes such as kidnapping and assasinations.  These "US-based actors" allegedly will be moved to violence based on "narratives of fraud in the recent general election, the emboldening impact of the violent breach of the US Capitol, conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and conspiracy theories," the March 1, 2021 document claims.  Haines divides "domestic violent extremists," or DVEs, into three categories; a graphic of the U.S. Capitol building sits atop the category entitled "anti-government/anti-authority violent extremists."  That particular brand of terrorist, according to the report, is driven by their "opposition to perceived economic, social, or racial hierarchies or perceived government overreach, negligence, or illegitimacy."  (Perceived?)

Making Americans Your Enemies.  The narrative is here, and it doesn't like you very much.  In recent remarks before members of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, the chief of the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency claimed that domestic extremism has become "part of the cultural mainstream."  Former DHS official and USA Today contributor Elizabeth Neumann agrees:  "Far-Right Extremists went mainstream under Trump."  "Extremists have gone mainstream," echoes journalist Zahra Ahmad.  "Lawyers, realtors and every-day folks make up their ranks."  Ahmad cites a figure suggesting a quarter of Americans hold "ideas incubated by white nationalists."  Not to be left out, NPR warns that white extremism "seeps" into the mainstream.  The Atlantic says the mainstream has gone extremist too.  A study by the Chicago Project on Security and Threats warns that most January 6 "insurrectionists" were mainstream to the extreme: ["]They work as CEOs, shop owners, doctors, lawyers, IT specialists, and accountants.  Strikingly, court documents indicate that only 9 percent are unemployed.  Of the earlier far-right extremist suspects we studied, 61 percent were under 35, 25 percent were unemployed, and almost none worked in white-collar occupations.["]

Dept. of Homeland Security flirting with totalitarianism.  Now that the Department of Justice and FBI are using the 1/6/21 Capitol incursion to demonize all who attended the massive rally that day, imputing "insurrection," "white supremacy," and "extremism" to them, massive political repression may be coming. [...] The No Fly List is an arbitrary means of denying the right to travel long distances quickly to anyone.  While it can be challenged in court, be prepared to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorneys' fees and wait years for the appeals process to work.  In the meantime, forget about organizing a national political movement, starting a new business, attending distant weddings or funerals, or otherwise living life to its fullest in "the land of the free."  Who is a "domestic extremist"?  Plenty of Democrats think anyone who expresses support for Trump or even Rick DeSantis qualifies, especially if they are Caucasian.  DHS bureaucrats get to apply that label to anyone they want.

The Great Reset Is Just a MacGuffin for Total State Control.  The United States has always presented a roadblock to the ambitions of globalist oligarchs through its one-two punch of a Constitution that clearly constrains the powers of government while empowering the people and an American culture that prides itself on representing the last, best hope for freedom on the planet.  So how do you "reset" America so that it becomes just another socialist country controlled by an elite few?  You undermine America's freedoms by undermining her foundations.  You go to war with the American people.  "White supremacy" is the socialists' "yellowcake uranium."  It's really that simple.  You can't start a war against society without an excuse, and you can't engage in perpetual war unless the excuse chosen is so vague and illusory that it can't possibly be vanquished.  This has always been a particular talent of power-hungry socialists.  They know how to engage their troops in endless battles by choosing inexhaustible targets:  bourgeois materialism, carbon dioxide, hate, whiteness.

Climate change is the perfect tool to justify complete control.  Replacing internal combustion-powered automobiles with E.V.s is policy.  Eventually, they will acknowledge the inherent pollution in battery manufacture, the production of the electricity needed to charge the batteries, and eventual battery disposal.  The goal is to eliminate private transportation in its entirety.  In major cities, roadwork now entails reducing on-street parking while narrowing thoroughfares to increase traffic.  This is a prelude to charging a yearly fee for the privilege of city parking.  Several thousand dollars a year should modify behavior and increase revenues.  The implementation of license fees (also several thousand dollars per annum) for car ownership will come to fruition.  Limiting the right to own a car for people who allow their "social credit score" to decline by saying something untoward about government or authorities on social media, or in public, will also be a tactic.  Next will be restricted usage and a fee per mile driven with driving limited to odd and even days for portions of the population.  Social scores will dictate who is allowed to fly on commercial airliners, with ticket prices including a "carbon fee" commensurate to the seat's percentage of the flight's total carbon cost.  In addition to forcing the price of gasoline to $20 a gallon, the "price of all energy will necessarily have to skyrocket" (Barack Obama).  They will triple or quadruple the price of all energy, whether it be electricity, natural gas, or home heating oil.

Stunning DOJ Hubris — Prosecutor Claims Charges of Sedition Possible in January 6th Protest.  The DOJ and FBI appear to be maintaining an aggressive posture against their political opposition on behalf of the ongoing 'domestic extremist' narrative.  In a remarkable statement prosecutor Michael Sherwin claims that charges of sedition are possible for those who attended the January 6th protest in DC against the outcome of the 2020 election.  Conducting political surveillance, abusing the NSA database by extracting personal information in violation of the fourth amendment, lying to a FISA court to get a title-1 surveillance warrant against Donald Trump's campaign, fabricating a false Trump-Russia conspiracy theory, pushing knowingly false information to the media to support a fraudulent investigation, initiating a special counsel to hide the trail of wrongdoing; and the FBI conducting political operations against the Trump administration, was apparently no big deal.  However, attend a protest against the corrupt interests of the deep state in DC and you are guilty of "sedition."

The American Police State Is Now Forming.  The image of the new wall or fence with razor wire on top that now surrounds the Capitol has been floating across the screen of my mind since it was erected.  Was it erected merely as a response to the horrible events of Jan. 6, and the fear of a right-wing uprising against the anti-Trump Democrats?  Recently, this writer had a breakthrough and understood that this wall is actually an austere reminder that we have entered into a new phase of American history:  the American police state.  The bombast against Trump-supporters now nicknamed "domestic terrorists"; the marching of Guam national Guardsmen to the office of Marjory Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) as a demonstration of the legitimacy of Guam as a U.S. entity; the rapid overturning of and de-legitimizing of all Trump policies both domestic and foreign; the emplacement of a transsexual as a higher up in the Health and Human Services Department; the encouragement of a "re-imagining" of police work in our major cities; the non-enforcement of federal laws pertaining to border security and legal entry into the USA; and the racial messages about statues, American history, the teaching of American history, and the need to overturn American society and its traditions are not merely challenges and upheavals to be dealt with.

Stolen elections have consequences.
H.R. 1 is Nothing But a Massive Democrat Power Grab.  Not content with the rigging and manipulation of the 2020 election, or the "fortifying" of it as some leftists have described it, the Democrats are prepared to codify, and are aggressively pushing to codify, the corruption we saw play out in 2020 through H.R. 1.  Now, mind you, this is House Resolution 1 because the very first bill that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered in the new session was this attempt at election rigging.  Just so we're absolutely clear:  her biggest priority in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis is not helping Americans or small businesses, but making sure to codify corruption.  She even gave it the Orwellian title of the "For the People Act."  What it should be titled is "How to Effect One-Party Rule in America."  To put it mildly, it is a mind-blowing, brazen attempt by Pelosi and the Democrats to annihilate free and fair elections and place the Republican Party in permanent minority status.

Father Arrested, Jailed For Contempt After Referring To His Daughter As 'She'.  On Tuesday, the father of a biological girl who believes she is a boy turned himself into a Canadian court and was subsequently taken to jail after the Attorney General of British Columbia issued an arrest warrant for contempt after the father had insisted on referring to his daughter as his "daughter" and used the pronouns "she" and "her."  Robert Hoogland, from Surrey, British Columbia, has a 14-year-old daughter.  In February 2019, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that the girl receive testosterone injections without obtaining parental consent.  "The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence," The Federalist noted.

Capitol Investigation Seeks to Criminalize Political Dissent.  In the early hours of March 12, FBI agents in southwestern Florida barricaded a neighborhood to prepare to raid the home of one resident.  Christopher Worrell of Cape Coral was arrested and charged with several counts related to the January 6 Capitol melee.  Even though Worrell had been cooperating with the FBI for two months, the agency nonetheless unleashed a massive, and no doubt costly, display of force to take him into custody. [...] Worrell's arrest is the latest in what the U.S. Department of Justice warned would be an "unprecedented" investigation leading to sedition charges filed against American citizens.  Attorney General Merrick Garland pledged to make the Capitol Breach manhunt his top priority; on his first day in office, he received an update on the investigation from FBI Director Christopher Wray.  Garland has compared January 6 to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 people, including 15 children.  Roughly 300 people have been arrested so far, many of them transported to Washington, D.C. to await trial and dozens denied bail after federal prosecutors argued the defendants, including a high school senior from Georgia, pose a threat to the nation.  The Capitol Breach probe, the department's official title, is a flagrant political prosecution targeting Trump supporters.  Every display — from heavy-handed FBI raids to a militarized Washington, D.C. — is designed to portray the President Trump's allies as domestic terrorists.

Criminalizing Protest at the Capitol.  Now, our duly re-elected President Trump has been ousted from the office of president by a criminal conspiracy to install Joseph Biden, an usurper, in his place.  To do this, a combination of voter fraud, election fraud, dereliction of duty in the courts, and suppression of conservative speech was employed.  One of the more perfidious examples of the new intolerance for all things connected to an honest assessment of the 2020 election are the mass arrests of people who attended the January 6th rally in Washington D.C.  Two events took place on that day, each initiated by different groups of people on opposite sides of the election integrity issue.  On one side, Trump supporters gathered on the Ellipse to hear the president speak on the subject of election fraud and to show their support.  On the other side, Antifa-led groups met at the Capitol for the purpose of gaining unlawful entry to the building, vandalizing it, and blaming Trump supporters for their actions.  As proof of their goals, they broadcast messages on social media that exposed their plans in enough detail to leave no doubt regarding their intentions.  The Antifa members, all of whom attended the Capitol riot for the purpose of defaming President Trump, wore pro-Trump merchandise to disguise themselves as Trump supporters.  This is well-documented.

Until Lambs Become Lions.  [Scroll down]  We arrived in our current situation because our ruling elites painstakingly prepared the battleground in advance.  In 2012, they amended the 1948 Smith-Mundt Act to permit the domestic dissemination of government propaganda into American newsfeeds.  In 2015, they passed the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Act, which created a cottage industry of government-funded, progressive-leaning CVE consultants and think tanks dedicated to pushing the myth of right-wing "domestic extremism" and "white supremacy."  Employing teachers, healthcare professionals, first responders, and community leaders, the Obama-era CVE mania built a federally controlled and funded local surveillance and intelligence collection apparatus that spans from grade schools to the workplace to the doctor's office.  An apparatus that still uses debunked pseudoscience to classify ordinary Americans' constitutionally protected speech and activities as "pre-terrorism indicators."  Under the pretext of keeping us safe, they passed multiple counterterrorism laws such as the 2001 USA Patriot Act, the 2015 USA Freedom Act, and the various FISA Amendment Acts (2008, 2017, 2018, 2020), which, taken together, authorize warrantless mass surveillance of all American's communications, activities, associations, and business transactions.  In addition to these legislative actions, Americans became apathetic and lost the will to hold their government leaders accountable.  The multi-tier justice system under which we now suffer has been years in the making.

Will [the] Left's Violent Tendencies Lead To U.S. Breakup Or Dictatorship?  [Scroll down]  Now that you've gotten used to being told what to do during the pandemic, the left will test other means of domination.  At some point, our rageful leftist betters will try violence.  As the last year shows, it's probably inevitable.  There's a reason why Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has kept 10,000 National Guard troops ringing the Capitol after the Jan. 6 political demonstrations.  Again, it's not about fear, it's about political control and physical intimidation, the threat of violence.  Last year, the U.S. was wracked by riots and other wanton political destruction by Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other like-minded left-wing extremist groups.  The media largely ignored the hate-driven violence.  Indeed, one famous screen shot that made the rounds on the internet showed a CNN correspondent standing in front of a burning building while blithely describing the protest as "not, generally speaking, unruly."  That echoes how the media routinely described last year's rampages as "mostly peaceful."  It was a lie, pure and simple, the equivalent of a doctor telling a terminal patient's family that the patient is "mostly cancer-free."

Ingraham still searching for 'all rights are suspended during a pandemic' clause in the Constitution.  Fox News host Laura Ingraham laced President Joe Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci during her Friday [3/12/2021] opening monologue for their continued reliance on COVID-19 restrictions even though they have proven to be failures.  "Every day we wake up, and it seems like another constitutional right is under threat," Ingraham began.  "The First Amendment, the Second Amendment, even the Fourth Amendment."  She went on to say that many Americans are self-censoring "because they're afraid of the consequences" of speaking out and sharing their own opinions that may run counter to government narratives and cultural groupthink regarding the pandemic and other issues.

World financial leaders want to adopt China's nefarious system to determine credit using a person's internet history.  In a blog post on its website, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) proposed a system of social credit scoring similar to the kind already in use in Communist China that would determine people's credit eligibility based on internet history, leading to concerns that such a system could be turned against anyone who opposes the will of financial and globalist leaders.  The concepts that the IMF proposes are already being quietly promoted and practiced, notably in China, but also in the U.K., where trials are underway involving widespread covert internet surveillance and data recording.

Will FBI 'Chats' Send Conservatives to Prison?  Across the nation, FBI agents are swooping down upon conservative activists, Trump supporters, and anyone suspected of any tie to the January 6 clash at the Capitol.  Conservative author Candace Owens tweeted on March 3:  "About 10 of my friends who attended Trump's speech but DID NOT go to Capitol building thereafter have had the FBI turn up at their door to ask them why they went to D.C. ... Our FBI is trying to scare conservatives against ever gathering in the future."  Actually, the potential problem is far worse for people targeted by the feds.  FBI chief Christopher Wray, who is scrambling to deliver the indictments that will please his congressional overlords, says the agency is conducting 2,000 domestic terrorism investigations.  Few Americans recognize how badly the legal playing field is tilted against them.  When FBI agents knock on their doors, many Americans won't hesitate to open up because they assume "those who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear."  But along with Bureau procedures that are a travesty of due process, the FBI is exploiting a sweeping law that criminalizes casual comments.  Federal agents have the right to lie to you and to put you in prison if you lie to them.  Any citizen who makes even a single-word ("no" or "yes") false utterance to a federal agent faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Are We Still Free?  Possibly the strongest belief I had going into last year and the one I was saddest to lose when I realized it simply wasn't true anymore, was the belief that we were still a free country.  Biden's teleprompter speech Thursday evening paraded his non-belief in the Constitution.  While claiming to be a unity president, not only did he give President Trump and his team zero credit for getting the vaccine fast-tracked and the country supplied with at least 100 million doses, he, Emperor No-Clothes, pronounced that he has decided we might be able to get outside with our close family members for the 4th of July, only if we are good boys and girls.  If the new normal means the Democrats-in-charge will have the power to dictate the nature of small outdoor family gatherings two full months after his goal of getting every willing person vaccinated, then Biden doesn't understand the meaning of Independence Day.

It's time for Red States to start nullifying federal law.  As we all know, the last election was a "tipping point" election on many different levels.  An election won with the use of illegal last-minute changes to state election laws has led to a rogue regime that threatens the very foundations of America.  This is being achieved through highly questionable executive orders, the decimation of the concept of national sovereignty and an attack on fossil fuels, the lifeblood of our economy.  Moreover, Biden is converting our military into a social justice agency and transforming our intelligence services into witch-hunters for conservatives who dared to protest a stolen election.  More alarming is the left's goal to make its political power permanent by granting amnesty to 20-30 million illegal aliens, granting statehood to D.C. and Puerto Rico, expanding the Supreme Court, and normalizing the censorship of conservatives, not to mention the institutionalizing of election fraud, especially in key swing states.

A Generation Conditioned to Give Up Their Freedom.  As I scrolled through some news articles on Thursday [3/11/2021], one particular article caught my attention.  CNN ran the article and it was talking about a new generation that is being referred to as Gen C or Generation COVID.  The concept is that the global pandemic which has struck our world is creating changes among a generation of kids that are growing and developing through all the craziness.  Throughout the article, several examples were shared of how this pandemic is affecting this 'Gen C' in ways that others may have not experienced in the past.  It spoke of canceled birthday parties, the inability to see family, and more.  Images filled the page showing kids that were in masks, in contact with other people behind glass doors, and images of a child where the parent was creating a TikTok video explaining how the child had yet to know what a playdate was really about.

What Could Go Wrong?  Dallas Launches Database for Businesses Still Requiring Masks.  In my piece on Nevada's Democrat Socialists of America takeover of the Democrat Party in the State, I gave this warning about Texas:  "With the full opening of the state and the lifting of any mask mandates, Texas businesses who are choosing to not maintain mask requirements for their establishments will now become the focus of harassment."  Now the City of Dallas thinks that this is a good idea.

Tucker Carlson RIPS Joe Biden's Speech:  "How Dare you Tell Us Who We Can Spend the Fourth of July With".  Joe Biden delivered his very first address as US President on the anniversary of the COVID lockdowns.  Virtually no one tuned in to the White House's YouTube channel to watch dementia Joe speak gibberish for 20 minutes.  Joe Biden's doom and gloom speech was not inspiring at all.  He lied about Trump and threatened Americans with indefinite lockdowns if we don't wear masks and maintain social distancing.  Biden actually believes he has the authority to tell Americans who we can spend the Fourth of July with.

Biden's scary, boring, and bizarre address to the nation.  [Scroll down]  The main thrust of the speech was that everyone must get the vaccine (the wonderful Biden vaccine).  However, Biden conceded that even with the vaccine, masks and social distancing must continue.  Even with everyone vaccinated, by July 4, maybe we can gather with small groups outdoors.  In other words, even as we're all pumped full of a vaccine, nothing will change.  But we should trust Biden and remember that we're all in this together.  Here's the scariest thing Biden said, although he slipped it in so quickly many may not have noticed (emphasis mine):  "Fourth, in the coming weeks, we will issue further guidance on what you can and cannot do once fully vaccinated to lessen the confusion, to keep people safe, and encourage more people to get vaccinated."  The vaccine, rather than freeing us, will bring us even more tightly under government control as the federal government mandates what [we] can and cannot do.

A Storm Over the American Republic.  [Scroll down]  The right to challenge and criticize, which is an integral part of the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment, appears seriously threatened.  The right to defend oneself against charges also appears threatened, and the legal profession dangerous to practice.  Calls for political purges continue.  The leftist organization MoveOn.org has launched a campaign against what it calls the "Treason Caucus" and the expulsion from Congress of Senators described as "complicit in Trump's deadly insurrection."  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — apparently trying to create an equivalence between the worst terrorist attack suffered by the United States on 9/11/2001 and the events of January 6, and seemingly trying to position the government to suppress free speech — has announced that Congress will move to establish a 9/11-type commission.  A member of the Democratic National Committee, David O. Atkins, suggested , "how *do* you deprogram 75 million people?  Where do you start?" and "We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan."  "White supremacists," President Biden announced, "are the greatest domestic terror threat in the US.  It's complex, it's wide-ranging and it's real."

H.R. 1 Is a Partisan Assault on American Democracy.  Late Wednesday night [3/3/2021], the House passed H.R. 1, the "For the People Act."  It passed by ten votes, with every Republican voting against it, as well as Mississippi Democrat Bennie Thompson, who fears that the bill will abolish majority-black districts like his in the Deep South. [...] It would be an understatement to describe H.R. 1 as a radical assault on American democracy, federalism, and free speech.  It is actually several radical left-wing wish lists stuffed into a single 791-page sausage casing.  It would override hundreds of state laws governing the orderly conduct of elections, federalize control of voting and elections to a degree without precedent in American history, end two centuries of state power to draw congressional districts, turn the Federal Elections Commission into a partisan weapon, and massively burden political speech against the government while offering government handouts to congressional campaigns and campus activists.

Masks Are Just Part of the Socialists' Uniform.  [Scroll down]  Mask mandates reflect the American government's descent toward socialism:  Mask mandates are also an illustration of the sharp philosophical divide straining Americans into two camps guided by conflicting worldviews.  In the one are true democrats who believe that all legitimate government power is derived from individual consent, and in the other are true socialists who sanctify the exercise of government power in pursuit of collectivist goals at the expense of individual liberty. [...] For Americans who believe that society should operate freely from government as much as possible and that government action should be reserved to handle only those problems that a cooperative society cannot accomplish on its own, relatively useless government dictates are absolute poison.

Why Election Integrity Matters.  [Scroll down]  Incredibly, while the Founders knew nothing about cars, televisions, mobile phones, or the Internet, the mechanisms they put in place largely survived Time's march.  But for all of their familiarity with the dark sides of man's nature, even the Founding Fathers, possibly the greatest assembly of men to ever come together in history, couldn't foresee the darkness that lay ahead with the Democrat party of the 21st century.  Today, America sits and watches as Democrats essentially send the Constitution through the shredder.  Emboldened by a pusillanimous Supreme Court, Democrats with H.R. 1, seek to undermine the Constitution's very foundation:  Voting integrity by the governed.  They seek to codify arrangements that, by their very nature, are intended to eviscerate the notion of vote integrity.
  •   Voter ID:  Eliminated.
  •   Mail-in voting:  Mandated.
  •   Maintenance of accurate voter rolls:  Outlawed.
  •   Same-day registration:  Required.
  •   Ballot harvesting:  Allowed.
These anti-integrity initiatives, and many more, will be codified under H.R. 1, with the goal of giving Democrats end-to-end control over voting in the United States.  Once they achieve this, they will control every branch and every element of the federal government in perpetuity.  And given that they back a regulatory state that never met a freedom it didn't want to regulate, they will control every aspect of the lives of formerly free Americans.

There is no First Amendment protection in Canada.
Police entered a church to take pictures of congregants illegally gathering ... in Canada.  When you hear of police entering a church gathering to collect information on citizens breaking the law, what country comes to mind?  Perhaps China or North Korea?  Perhaps Yemen or Afghanistan?  Well get ready to redefine your understanding of worldwide persecution, because such a thing just happened in Calgary in Alberta, Canada.

ANYBODY can gather without masks, First Amendment says.
Fully vaccinated people can gather without masks, CDC says.  Fully vaccinated Americans can gather with other vaccinated people indoors without wearing a mask or social distancing, according to long-awaited guidance from federal health officials.  The recommendations also say that vaccinated people can come together in the same way — in a single household — with people considered at low-risk for severe disease, such as in the case of vaccinated grandparents visiting healthy children and grandchildren.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the guidance Monday [3/8/2021].

Immunity Passports Bring Back Racial Segregation.  Vaccine passports aren't coming: they're already here.  And while discriminating against people based on their vaccination status is bad enough: the implications are even worse.  A vaccine passport transforms all of society into a two-tier system, but the basis for it isn't a needle, it's a set of government guidelines that were based on identity politics or 'equity'.  From the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices to various state equity initiatives, some even worse than the CDC's push to prioritize people by race, the vaccine rollout was designed to put minorities at the head of the line.  These prioritizations were meant to be invisible, using disparate impact to advance groups with the right demographic skew.  The government using race to prioritize medical treatment is horrifying enough, but vaccine passports take the biased vaccine system and embed that bias into everyday areas of life.  The end result is a horrifying cross between China's social credit system and the racial segregation of the South.  Call it the equity credit system based on racial and sexual identity.

Dems' 'Election Reforms' Would End American Democracy As We Know It.  Yes, elections have consequences, and terrible bills like this certainly prove that.  Anyone who voted for the Democrats in 2020 hoping for a "turn to the center" should by now be feeling mighty foolish.  H.R. 1 is but one example.  So far, Democrats have passed a near $2 trillion spending splurge that has next to nothing to do with COVID-19, created a new crisis on our border, alienated our strongest ally in the Mideast, convinced a bullying China that we're weak and vulnerable, and, instead of doing the people's business as they're supposed to, are now "investigating" the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C.  Some 5,000 National Guard troops, totally unnecessary right now, remain camped in the nation's barbed-wire encased capital, despite the fact that the FBI testified last week that no arms were seized by them nor were any shots fired by demonstrators during the supposed "insurrection."  Democrats hope to use the distraction of troops in D.C. and a probe of the events of Jan. 6 to pursue the most radical congressional agenda in history.

Another black swan in America's future?  In chronological order, the black swans we've experienced in just the past five years are:
  [#1]   the surprise election of Donald J. Trump in 2016,
  [#2]   the Chinese-induced pandemic and the anti-science response of most government officials to it,
  [#3]   the acquiescence to and even open encouragement of the Antifa and BLM riots in the summer of 2020 by large segments of the Democrat party, and
  [#4]   the boldness and success of the election coup of 2020.
Each of these in its own way permanently changed the country.  Of these four, only the first one — the election of Donald Trump — had a positive effect.  The other three left America seriously damaged. [...] Financially, America is in a Bizarro World in which deficits and debt don't matter, real interest rates are negative, yet the stock market climbs to record heights.  A financial day of reckoning is due.  It can happen at any time.  It could take the form of the dollar losing its position as the world's reserve currency, it could be a massive stock market crash, or it could be runaway inflation or a depression.  Any one of these would be a major black swan event catching a large majority of people by surprise.  Given the polarized state of the country and the lack of trust in government and other institutions, anything can happen then.  Anything.

A New Zealander's 9 'Starter Steps' to Save America From Socialism.  Though I'm a New Zealander, I know America and its people well.  I've travelled to every state in the Lower 48 and have addressed more than 500 audiences across this amazing nation.  My message has always been the same:  The United States is heading toward a brutally tyrannical socialist revolution — and if America goes down, every free country follows.  Well, now it's here, people, unfolding before our very eyes.  So, what can be done?  Can the Republic be saved?  Honestly, I don't know.  However, I can suggest some steps that would at least give this country a fighting chance.

Judge blocks bills limiting Beshear's emergency powers.  Gov. Andy Beshear won a court order Wednesday [3/3/2021] temporarily blocking bills passed by the Kentucky General Assembly that threatened to invalidate a series of his executive orders aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.  The Democratic governor's administration made a "strong case" that the Republican-backed bills are likely to "undermine, or even cripple," public health measures needed to protect Kentuckians from the pandemic, Franklin County Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd said in his ruling.

The Editor says...
The judge appears to be in favor of concentrating all power in the hands of the Governor, rather than the elected legislature.  That's a move in the wrong direction.

While Republicans Slept, Democrats Stole the 2020 Election — Like Communists, They Are Working to Lock In Their Lawless Third World Voting Rules.  This is so serious and Republicans and Big Media do and say nothing.  Now the Democrats are taking their lead from the communist playbook, elections in America will soon be over if they get away with this.  A select few members of the Democrat Party will decide who wins each and every election going forward.  This was why it was imperative to fight for integrity in results in the 2020 election.  We knew if the Democrats got away with stealing President Trump's landslide election they would never relinquish control.  Rush Limbaugh warned America this fall that Democrats were done with elections.  They were tired of having to try and convince Americans of the benefits of higher taxes, open borders, weak defense, anti-American — pro-China trade deals, etc.

ICE locks Twitter account that alerted public of illegal immigrants freed by sanctuary cities.  ICE has locked down a Twitter account that was used to alert the public to illegal immigrants released by sanctuary cities.  @ICEAlerts is now "protected," meaning only those who had already been following the account can see the target names.  Users also can't retweet the old posts, said Jon Feere, a former senior employee at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement under President Trump.  ICE did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the change, but Mr. Feere said the Biden administration doesn't want people to know what kinds of criminals it's no longer actively seeking to deport.

The Editor says...
This part is news to me:  I didn't know the government had direct and immediate control of Twitter.

[Nearly vertical] "Slippery Slope" - Vaccine Passports Are A Technical & Ethical Minefield.  Vaccine passports are essentially certificates that link proof of vaccination to the identity of the holder, a potential silver bullet to return to our pre-Covid-19 lives.  Before the pandemic, the EU was working on plans for cross-border electronic certificates to replace the paper booklets that many travellers carry.  At this week's EU summit some leaders pressed for further steps towards coronavirus passports.  A recent Royal Society report that I led came up with 12 different criteria that would need to be satisfied to make such passports feasible.  This is a complex ecosystem that requires an understanding of everything from immunity and infection to technology, ethics and behavioural factors.  But the underlying question must be: what would a vaccine passport be used for?

There's something happening here.  "There's something happening here; what it is ain't exactly clear," warned a rock band called Buffalo Springfield in 1967 in a song called For What It's Worth.  The song had a hypnotic and ominous melody critical of Uncle Sam and the Pentagon.  That song suddenly seems relevant again. [...] There is a lot of "ain't exactly clear" going on in 2021.  Many question the fairness and outcome of the 2020 election.  Many look at the COVID-19 pandemic and wonder if it was actually a biological attack from China aimed to destabilize the West and unseat China's biggest critic, Donald Trump.  Many wonder and worry about local governments' heavy-handed restrictions in the name of combatting the pandemic. [...] Questioning the government was very fashionable in 1967.  Questioning the government in 2021 or the recent election is called sedition.  We were a lot freer in 1967 than we are now.

Democrats Declare War on Conservative Media.  Henry Ford famously quipped, "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black."  The Democrats take a similar view about what the public should be permitted to see on broadcast and cable networks.  A Wednesday [2/24/2021] hearing conducted by the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology made it abundantly clear that they believe we should be free to view anything we like so long as it fits the Democratic version of the "facts."

FBI Continues Searching for January 6th DC Protestors.  Giving the Chinese, Iranian and Russian state police a run for their money:  Apparently the Federal Bureau of Investigation, ie. the U.S. version of "State Police" enforcement units, have found a cause they are really committed to: finding every person who attended the Capitol Hill protests on January 6, 2021.  In a scene straight out of Orwell's 1984 warning, the FBI is literally calling their effort the hunt for "America's Most Wanted."  To achieve their goal, the FBI has been asking for help from their ideological comrades in the state run media apparatus, and achieving a great deal of success.

The Attacks on the Second Amendment Became Attacks on the First Amendment.  Conservatives had long predicted that the attacks on the Second Amendment would eventually turn into attacks on the First Amendment.  Liberals used to ridicule that until they turned leftward and joined the attack.  The premise of the attacks on the First Amendment are familiar.  Speech is dangerous.  Not everyone ought to be able to exercise it without proper supervision.  Surely the Framers hadn't anticipated the internet and would have agreed that disinformation needs to be restrained because it leads to conspiracy theories and insurrections.  And there's no better way to defang conspiracy theories than by ruthlessly suppressing them.  That has never led to an insurrection or deep paranoia about the government in the history of mankind.  The old parodies of Second Amendment attacks have been wholly embraced by the Democrat establishment.  A contingent of the Left, led by Glenn Greenwald, have gone on the attack, because they don't trust a Democrat establishment with full power over speech not to use that power to crush enemies to the Left.

Symbiotic Relationships.  The relationship of government to the people [supposedly] began where the government servants were for the benefit of the people.  Now that relationship has flipped.  You had better do what you're told or else.  Or else what?  We will raise the price of your medication, control the medical attention you can receive, force you to pay for our medical insurance, regulate your business [or shut it down all together, because, you know, COVID], take your guns, brainwash your children and tell you that you better be damn happy while we're doing it.  No, wait, they're already doing that.  Are you enjoying the symbiotic relationship you have with your government?  Federal or local?  Is it a give and take situation that benefits both parties or have you become a slave to 'the man'?  Add to that mixture the current state of big tech and the media.


The Authoritarian Left Is on the March.  This week, Democratic Reps.  Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., and Jerry McNerny, D-N.J., sent out a series of letters to America's largest communications corporations:  AT&T, Alphabet Inc., Cox Communications, Dish Network, Comcast, Apple, Amazon and others.  Their letters demanded answers from these corporations on one simple topic:  Why would these platforms continue to allow the dissemination of "misinformation" from conservative outlets? [...] The overt move by members of the government to cudgel private corporations into silencing unpopular viewpoints was clearly violative of First Amendment principles.  The Constitution clearly provides that Congress shall make no law abridging freedom of speech or the press; Democrats have now hit upon a convenient workaround where they bully private actors into doing their censorious bidding.

Capitol Hill hearing targets Fox News and lays the groundwork for government censorship.  One of the most chilling examples in modern times of the accelerating full-spectrum assault on free speech and the First Amendment took place yesterday on Capitol Hill, courtesy of a subcommittee of the Democrat-controlled House Committee on Energy and Commerce.  For over three hours on Wednesday afternoon, the subcommittee held a virtual hearing titled Fanning the Flames:  Disinformation and Extremism in the Media.  The target was conservative media in general and Fox News in particular.  Conservatives who have bought into the fake meme that Fox News has "gone left" might want to take note of how the authoritarian leftists who have taken control of the Democrat party and their allies in big media have now openly embarked on a carefully crafted and well-orchestrated propaganda campaign to destroy Fox News.  The Democrats are also targeting FNC's two competitors, Newsmax TV and OANN.

Rep. Bill Johnson:  Democrat Efforts to Censor Dissident Media 'Eerily Similar' to Communist China.  Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH) said that Democrat efforts to censor dissident media are "eerily similar" to communist China's on Wednesday [2/24/2021] during the House Committee hearing on "Fanning the Flames:  Disinformation and Extremism in the Media."  "Just two weeks ago, China's national radio and television administration banned BBC World News from broadcasting in China, because it found BBC's reports, I quote, 'seriously violate' broadcast guidelines, including, and I quote again, 'the requirement that news should be truthful, and fair, and not harm China's national interests,'" said Johnson during the hearing on Wednesday [2/24/2021].

The Government Censors Are Here.  Congressional Democrats are demanding to know what communications giants such as Comcast and AT&T are going to do about "the spread of dangerous misinformation."  How quickly this country is descending into an authoritarian regime where the government controls speech and the flow of information.  Ahead of a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing Wednesday [2/24/2021], California Democratic Reps.  Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney wrote a letter to Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, Dish, Verizon, Cox, Altice, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Google, and Hulu.  According to the New York Times, which says it has reviewed the correspondence, the pair is not pleased that "the cable, satellite and over-the-top companies that disseminate these media outlets" — likely referring to Fox News, One America News Network, and Newsmax — "have done nothing in response to the misinformation aired by these outlets."

The Editor says...
Late-night TV "comedians" spread "dangerous misinformation" and nobody's trying to silence them.  John Kerry says we only have nine years left to avoid a climate catastrophe.  That's dangerous misinformation, too.  CNN is a fountain of misinformation.  Several other "mainstream" news outlets are, also.

Congressional Dems Trying to Deplatform Fox News May Have Violated First Amendment.  "Congressional Dems sent a letter to Comcast, Amazon, Google, ATT & others, demanding to know what they plan to do about the 'the spread of dangerous misinformation' from Fox News, OAN and Newsmax — including whether they will continue to carry them," notes Rachel Abrams of the New York Times.  Legal scholars criticized this congressional demand, made by Reps.  Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Jerry McNerney (D-CA), on First Amendment grounds.  Law professor Gus Hurwitz said, "These letters are chilling, in both the [First Amendment] sense and that of the feeling in my bones when I read them.  Effectively demanding distributors impose government-mandated speech codes for content."  Congressional Democrats only object to misinformation on these conservative channels — not progressive ones.

Democrats Move to Silence Non-Liberal Speech.  [Scroll down]  We have seen this in the moves against conservatives and other independent voices by Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Go Fund Me and other tech titans.  While these companies are no doubt motivated in part by ideology in putting their thumbs on the scale of public discourse, the truth is more sinister than that.  The major tech platforms are monopolies with obvious antitrust vulnerabilities, as we saw when the Trump administration brought an enforcement action against Facebook that seeks the divestiture of Instagram.  The Democrats have not only urged tech platforms to silence conservatives, they are at least implicitly (God knows what is said in private) holding out the prospect of immunity from antitrust enforcement, which means many billions more in profits.  This is the ultimate in 21st-century corruption.  But it gets worse:  the Democrats are also trying to drive independent voices off the more traditional broadcast and cable platforms.

House Dems to cable operators:  You're not still carrying Fox, OANN, Newsmax, are you?  Two House Democrats didn't waste much time in attempting to bully these distributors into deplatforming conservative media outlets.  Reps.  Anna Eshloo and Jerry McNerney sent letters to the CEOs of Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, Roku, and others demanding to know whether they planned to renew contracts with Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax after "incendiary reports" over the past year — and why they would carry them in the future.

Leftist Naomi Wolf comes out swinging... in favor of the Constitution.  Naomi Wolf became well known over the years as a third-wave feminist, a member of the Clinton camp, an adviser to Al Gore during his 2000 presidential campaign, and a reliable leftist on most issues.  On Monday, though, she surprised the heck out of Tucker Carlson and, probably, most of his audience, when she turned out to be a fierce defender of individual liberty.  A mesmerized Tucker listened as Wolf fluently expounded on principles of liberty and tagged the Biden government as creating "a totalitarian state before our eyes."

All Peaceful Means.  Some say China wants a weakened United States so that it will be easier to conquer.  If China can get the people of the United States to wage war against each other, recognizing that the use of nuclear arms would be out of the question, they achieve the greatest Sun Tzu victory of not having to wage war at all, but to swoop in and commandeer the rubble left behind.  Some say that internal communists are trying to manipulate the right into action, in order to secure a weaponless society that ensures that whoever survives will be subject to any and all draconian sanctions and even make white genocide feasible.  I would not normally delve into these subjects had I not seen the proposals for such actions clearly spoken about by those in Congress; recognized there exists a Trump Voter List held by those in Congress; seen the rogue's gallery of the dogmatically anti-white, anti-constitution cabinet being assembled by Joe Biden, (the beneficiary of vote fraud perpetrated on the nation) and seen the complete capitulation of law to a virus, basically the flu, that has a 99.93% survivable rate, or a .07% mortality rate. [...] Forces are gathering in the capitol to unleash salvos of unconstitutionality on the people of every state.  The desire is to create a nation of susceptible individuals, unarmed and defanged so that they might be compelled to commit any uncivil act at the behest of a totalitarian government official.

No Longer Consenting, Carlsbad California Restaurant Owners Defy Order and Open for Indoor Dining.  The power of government comes from the people; or as we say in the U.S. "from the consent of the governed."  When people lead, the politicians are forced to follow.  Without implied consent the municipal or state government has no power.  None.  The power of the local, regional or state authority comes from the expressed consent of the people.  As soon as the majority of people deny that consent, those officials and state authoritarians lose all of their power.  Yes, it really is that simple.  [Video clip]

"Break Their Will".  When a dog curls its lip and bares its teeth, you know what sort of dog you're dealing with.  One such dog curled its lip in Massachusetts recently.  His name is David Ismay — possibly related to the Bruce Ismay of Titanic fame, but hold that thought.  This Ismay wants to "break the will" — his words — of people who rely on gasoline to power their cars and oil and natural gas to heat their homes, in order to "combat climate change."  And he was in a position to do just that, being until just recently a government worker and having lots of armed government workers available to enforce whatever he decreed as the Undersecretary for Climate Change — yes, such an office exists — of the state of Massachusetts.  A state nominally under the governorship of a Republican — Charlie Barker — it bears pointing out. [...] Ismay — who made $130,000 annually as a government worker, roughly twice as much as the average American family earns — was eventually forced to resign, which is good.

Inoculating Against the Wrong Attitudes.  In an article posted on its homepage, NBC News has already rushed forward to whet appetites over the possibility of inoculating against violent extremism.  Not all extremism, mind you, just the variety that is the latter-day sobriquet for white supremacy, which since January 6 has become a noose for social media to tighten around the neck of Trump supporters and conservatives en masse.  Accompanied by photographs of a "pro-Trump mob" waving Don't Tread on Me flags inside the Capitol building, the article gushes over Biden's plans to turn DHS into an offensive line against those who might carry out Capitol-like insurgencies.  The pre-planned uprising on January 6 has given the left a tailor-made excuse to reset public opinion on what is and what is not violent extremism.  In its opening salvo, the Biden administration has ordered DHS to fund research that will offer the means and method to "take actions to prevent violence before it occurs."

Democrats Work on Plan For Big Tech to Shut Down Dissent.  An interesting article within Reuters points out how the Democrats in congress are working with the White House to craft legislation to make "social media companies accountable for the spread of disinformation."  Or put another way, the Democrats are attempting to eliminate any ability of those who disagree with them; or worse yet, would outline their corrupt endeavors.  Ultimately this level of control is a reaction to fear.  So the logical question is:  what exactly are they fearful of?  Perhaps the answer is in alignment with the reason Democrats have s
