We're constantly told there are "existential threats" to humanity: coronavirus and climate change are the top two dangers, with racism, white supremacists, and domestic terrorism rising fast. But let's not forget about good ol' Islamic terrorism, which no one seems to care about anymore.
Meanwhile we have a senile President in the United States who seems to be doing nothing but acting as a puppet for whoever is really in charge of the nation. In less than two months, Joe Biden has signed dozens of executive orders that do little if anything for the American people but instead seem to have been created to please the global elite and radical Marxists. We have a crisis on our southern border, public schools are still closed in many states, lockdowns continue in blue states, and the White House continues to push Covid fear upon the public, despite rapidly falling hospitalizations and deaths. Now Biden is talking about imposing huge taxes on firearms and ammunition, a fake Covid relief bill has been passed that puts the nation into incomprehensible debt but does virtually nothing to help Americans who are financially suffering from the government's pandemic response, and Democrats are now trying to get the HR1 "For The People" act passed which will make fraudulent elections the norm and help to keep the Dems in power forever.
Anyone who knows the facts about what is going on is probably going to be upset about it. But people don't know what is going on.
In 21st century America (and worldwide, to be fair) the news media has largely become a disgrace. Outlets like CNN, MSNBC, CBS, the BBC, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Associated Press, have become propaganda machines financed by globalists and doing the bidding of their wealthy power-mad owners rather than what is good for society. Public opinion is being shaped to suit the needs of the elite and to steer us where they want us to go. That's why we had 4 years of anti-Trump misinformation shoved down our throats while offenses by leftists weren't mentioned. It's why all dissenting scientific information on Covid was suppressed or dismissed as fake news. It's why transgender people have been celebrated and Dr Seuss has become a villain.
The mainstream news media purposely failed to report on the Hunter Biden scandal. It has protected Joe Biden by hiding his history of lies, plagiarism, and corruption. It has avoided all mention of Nancy Pelosi's never ending dishonesty. It hasn't told us how Kamala Harris' ancestors were slave owners. The media inaccurately reported on the January 06 DC riots, painting it as a white supremacist "insurrection" rather than it being a protest by rightfully angry average Americans that sadly got way out of control.
We end up in a situation where lies are spread by the media or critical information is suppressed, leaving the public uninformed or misinformed. Then the same elitists who own the media conduct public opinion polls that are then used to show the majority approve of policies they really know nothing about. It's a great scam, and it's working.
People are divided and horribly uninformed, which is a tragedy considering how easy it is to access truthful information now. But the truth has to be sought out. And that takes a bit of time and effort. In today's fast paced, overly complicated world, many people don't have the time or the energy to research what is going on all around them.
The elitists and their news media co-conspirators know this, and they use it to their advantage to feed us poison.
And that is by far the biggest threat humanity faces.
Democrats always get it wrong. We don't idolize or worship Donald Trump. We are not dependent upon him. Trump lit a fire that allowed many to see the corruption in DC for the first time, and that same fire energized the rest of us to take action. But Trump himself is not the fire. Once lit, the fire will continue to burn even after he leaves the stage.
It would a mistake to dismiss the MAGA movement and its millions of members, although many keep trying. The deniers and critics will pay with their political careers.
Politicians, political commentators, and analysts have been discussing this for weeks, scratching their heads and trying to assign blame. Donald Trump has been accused of inciting an insurrection. Supporters of Q-Anon have been ridiculed as radicalized kooks. Trump voters and other conservatives and libertarians have been labeled as potential domestic terrorists. Fingers are pointing in every direction except where they should: at Congress itself.
Has there ever been a more blind, deaf, and dumb group of people in the world than the current U.S. Congress? It is an assembly of arrogant corrupt narcissists more interested in preening in front of television cameras than working for their constituents. Rather than doing anything useful, they spend their days locked in their offices writing useless legislation and finding ways to leverage their power to create more wealth for themselves. They spend our money with reckless abandon, most of it benefiting overseas political regimes or local special interests. Meanwhile, millions of people right here at home are living in poverty. Have you seen how people live in the Appalachia region of West Virginia and Tennessee? It’s a human tragedy, but you never hear anyone talking about it. But we do see Nancy Pelosi eating gourmet ice cream in the kitchen of her California mansion. We do see other elected officials, technically our employees, strutting around like celebrities wearing clothes most Americans can’t even afford for themselves. And when we write to our representatives, if we’re lucky we’ll get a form letter as a reply. The letter will not directly address our concerns. It will just be something churned out by a Congressional staffer to make us feel like we’re being listened to.
But we’re not being listened to. And that makes us angry.
Taxation without representation now applies to the entire nation. We’re ruled by a corrupt system that rewards not only America’s wealthy elite, but also the entire world’s wealthy elite. We’re fed crumbs and propaganda to keep us quiet and sedated. But the crumbs aren’t enough anymore. The propaganda isn’t being accepted anymore.
When the 2020 election results came in and people could see with their own eyes, without anyone manipulating us, that something wasn’t right, we demanded answers. But the Washington elite and their tools in the news media and social media ridiculed us and called millions of Americans “conspiracy theorists”. They told us to accept the election results and shut up about it. That created more anger.
So when President Trump invited people to a legal and peaceful protest at the Capital, naturally people came. Honest, hardworking, but marginalized citizens saw an opportunity to finally be heard. Unfortunately, a small percentage of the protesters came with bad intentions. A few were Leftists who helped to work up emotions and incite the storming of the Capital building. But most were regular everyday people who let their emotions take over, and they will suffer the consequences for their actions in the weeks and months to come.
All of the damage, injuries, and deaths could have been avoided, not by Trump, but by the U.S. Congress itself. Every member of Congress needs to look in a mirror and assign the blame to themselves. Senators and Representatives are not royalty. They aren’t elected so that they can become media darlings. They’re elected to listen to the people who voted for them and to do what those people want them to do. But they’re failing at that simple job and they’re too delusional to even realize it.
But we realize it. And we’re angry. We’re not violent. But we won’t sit quiet anymore, eating the elite’s crumbs. Those days are over.
January 6 should have been a wake up call for our government. But instead what did our leaders do? They sent tens of thousands of National Guard troops into DC to protect themselves. They labeled protesters as “domestic terrorists”. And they began impeachment proceedings against Trump.
Not one of them has taken any responsibility for the riot.
They’re still not listening. They’re simply doing even more to lock down and secure their power and prestige.
Congress can and should examine itself, heal itself, and then reach out with humility to we, the people. This would calm the anger and move the nation toward unity.
But I see no indications that anyone in DC is willing to do it.
I can’t see where this is going to end well for any of us.
In 2020 everyone was wishing the year away, thinking 2021 would be better. Contrary as always I said "2020 is just the rehearsal. We're being conditioned for what's yet to come." We're now a couple of weeks in to Joe Biden's imaginary Presidency and the house we call America is on fire.
Nothing has been done about the alleged pandemic except to require people to wear face masks, something almost everyone has been doing for months. Public schools are still closed in many cities thanks to teacher's unions refusal to let their members go back to work. Biden has had nothing to say about it. Some Governor's and Mayor's have granted their slaves the right to reopen their businesses on a limited basis despite the fact that there's been no significant drop in new Covid cases, proving what we knew all along: the closures were always politically motivated. Biden and crew are working on a pandemic financial stimulus but most of the money will not go to anything or anyone directly affected by the pandemic. It's just more handouts to poorly run cities and labor unions, and no doubt they'll send more millions to mysterious overseas destinations.
As of a result of the January 6 attack on the US Capital, which we're now learning many people in our government knew about in advance and therefore could have prevented, or at least been better prepared for, Biden and his totalitarian regime are working feverishly to undermine our Constitution and destroy our basic rights. There's talk of radical gun control laws, mass censorship and elimination of free speech, and the deprogramming and re-education of conservatives. Political commentators on the extremist news site MSNBC have even suggested using drones to attack Trump supporters. Biden has had nothing to say about any of this either.
Millions of dollars are being spent on a sham impeachment of Donald Trump. It's unconstitutional to impeach a civilian, but that isn't stopping the Democrats from trying. But they've never cared about the Constitution anyway except when it advances their agenda.
On his first day in office, Biden sent troops into Syria for absolutely no reason. But this action is a good indicator that we'll soon be in a new war to benefit the military industrial complex.
Compromised Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has announced she's open to new regulations on cryptocurrency, which is a nod to her bosses in the global banking industry.
The Keystone Pipeline project has been put on hold putting hundreds of thousands of blue collar workers out of work. But Biden's buddies in Russia and the Ukraine are really happy about it.
Women's sports have been destroyed thanks to Biden's unscientific executive orders on mentally ill transgender people.
Things are crazy. Facts no longer matter.
I'm not mad at Joe Biden. He's not in control. He's a puppet of the bankers and the global elite. We already knew Biden was a liar and a plagiarist and a traitor. Many voted for him anyway.
But when you invite an arsonist into your house, you shouldn't be surprised when you wake up with your house on fire.
On January 6 we saw people attacking the US Capitol, expressing rage at our corrupt and useless government. Many of the protesters were violent opportunists, but the rest were genuine patriots with serious concerns about voting integrity and the direction our nation is heading in. Members of Congress hid behind doors and desks, fearing for their lives. The media made a point of showcasing the Shaman guy wearing Viking horns. It was quite a spectacle. Really, it was mostly a circus, orchestrated to make Patriots look like radicals while the real radicals looked like victims.
As I watched our frightened leaders cower behind any solid objects they could find for safety I hoped at least one of them would eventually emerge and accept some responsibility for what happened. But it never happened. Instead they blamed Donald Trump for inciting violence. They blamed certain social media sites for allowing free speech. They brought in tens of thousands of National Guard soldiers. They built fences and walls. They threatened to investigate and prosecute loyal Americans with prison time.
But not one of them admitted to any fault. Not one of them said that maybe, just maybe, if they had listened to the American people and done their jobs as our sworn representatives, that none of this might have happened. Instead, they called the people who voted for them "insurrectionists". Our representatives, the people we pay for, are so out of touch with reality that they now hate us, fear us, and laugh at us. And now they're building walls for protection and chasing after us as "domestic terrorists".
What has happened to our nation? How much longer can we survive?
We're now in a time when people who support the US Constitution and the rule of law are portrayed by the media as dangerous extremists while at the same time people who embrace authoritarianism, totalitarianism, and Fascism are trotted out as defenders of democracy.
Right is left. Left is right. Up is down. Down is up.
Welcome to Orwell's 1984. It arrived a few years late, but it no doubt arrived.
Depending on your attitude, it’s either a frightening time to be alive, or it’s an exciting time to be alive. Maybe it’s a little of both. But there’s no doubt history is being written all around us, not only in the United States but all over the world.
Things heated up enormously after the protest and riot in the US Capital on January 6. I wish it hadn’t gotten out of control. I won’t speculate if our side got caught up in the heat of the moment or if they were manipulated by professional agitators, or even if ANTIFA were the real destroyers that day. That will be debated for months to come and I doubt we’ll ever agree on the answer. But there’s no denying the protest happened, things got crazy, and people were hurt.
And now politicians are foaming at the mouth in excitement trying to exploit a national tragedy for personal and political gain, completely oblivious to the fact that their self-serving greed is a large part of why the protest happened to begin with. These people truly think they are more important than the people they’re supposed to serve. Even days later there are very few elected officials promising to listen to us and work on serious reform that can bring us all back together. Instead, all I see is finger pointing, accusations, hateful statements, and a rush to destroy our freedom in the name of national security. But let’s be honest: they’re worried about their own security, not yours and mine. They’ve learned nothing, feeling safe in their delusion that January 6 was nothing but a bunch of deranged Trumpsters tearing up their Congressional offices. Get rid of Trump and silence his base and the problem is solved, or so they think.
Adding gasoline to the fire is corporate America which has jumped on board the crazy train promising to help with the silencing. While pretending to care about national unity, in reality corporations are censoring, condemning, and canceling President Trump and the entire freedom movement so that they gain favorable points with the Left, which they see as the probable winner of this fight. Most corporations have no loyalty to any nation or political cause. It’s just a horse race to them, and they’ll bet on whichever one is in the lead at the moment. They have no principles. And they’re hoping you don’t either.
But without principles, we have nothing. Our power comes from our principles. And this means:
When Netflix airs a movie that is basically kiddie porn, you complain, and if they don’t pull it off the air, you cancel your account. You don’t ignore it because your favorite show comes on later tonight.
If your bank is accused and found guilty of defrauding customers, change your bank. Don’t reward them by keeping your account open because it’s too much trouble to go elsewhere.
If Facebook and Twitter are censoring everything you post and there’s good reason to suspect they’re guilty of election interference, don’t accept it. Cancel your accounts. They think you’re too weak to leave them. Are you?
Google has trained you to think of them and only them when you need to search for something. But they also censor you, track you, and manipulate your thinking by only showing you the results they want you to see. I’ve published a list on my blog of the better search engines you should be using. Check it out.
And when giants like Amazon shut down our voices like when they recently announced they were turning off Parler’s web hosting, we need to complain. And if they don’t listen, we need to stop ordering from them. Cancel Prime. Get it out of your head that the default shopping site is Amazon. You have other choices.
We have to do these things even if it means we adjust our lifestyle a tiny bit.
Nothing will change until we stand firm by our principles and support the people and companies fighting for us instead of the people and companies trying to shut us down.
The power is ours, unless we’re weak and give it away.
