I remember being scared of Cardinal Richelieu in Three Musketeers movies. He had all this power and he only moved in the shadows, pulling strings from a distance, condemning persons to death who never heard of him and had no idea what they’d done wrong.
Sort of an early avatar of our own Deep State.
‘I Wanna Be in the Deep State When I Grow Up!’
Sometimes in a fallen world the state, authorized by God to protect its people from those who would harm them, has to resort to secrecy to carry out its mission. I don’t know how this moral distinction puzzles them: It’s okay to spy on the Chicoms. It’s not okay to spy on Americans at school board meetings.
Do we need a state to protect us from the state?
Here he is, Merrick Garland–front man for the Deep State! We have no idea how many goons and snitches he has on his payroll.
(I’m thinking of expanding this into a Newswithviews piece, but first I’ve got to jot it down while it’s still fresh in my mind.)
What would you think of a child who said, “I want to be in the Deep State when I grow up!”
“Because then you can do anything you want to anybody and never get in trouble for it! You don’t even have to think about telling the truth–ever! Even the freakin’ president can’t touch you! If he rocks the boat too much, just get rid of him… like they did to Trump.
“If you’re in the Deep State, even if you get caught doing something really bad, you don’t go to jail or nothin’! You just, heh-heh, ‘resign’–and then you hit the cable news shows and make piles of money.”
Sinners don’t need much encouragement to sin, but jeepers creepers! Fixing elections, taking down the president, spying on parents who are cheesed off at their school boards–I’d be mortified if any child of mine wanted to do stuff like that for a living.
What happened to the… I believe they used to called it “the Free World”? It seems to have disappeared while I was looking somewhere else.
Dig Canada. Their attorney general says there is “no absolute right to own private property” (https://foxmetronews.com/news/canadian-attorney-general-announces-citizens-do-not-have-the-absolute-right-to-own-private-property-video/).
Or, as Klaus Schwab and his merry minions at the World Economic Forum say, “You will own nothing and you will be happy” (Sessue Hayakawa in Bridge Over the River Kwai: “Be happy in your work”).
AG and (LOL!) “Justice Minister” David Lametti was speaking in connection with a proposal to confiscate every Canadian’s firearms. From there he soared right up into confiscating everything. Hey, if you don’t own it, you can’t keep it!
No private property. Wow. Suddenly we’re back in the Soviet Union, circa 1930.
Your house, your car, the shirt off your back–if it’s not your property, whose is it?
I’d love to know the answer to that question.
Back when I first posted this, I wouldn’t have thought it possible that our country could have worse government than it had then. Boy was I wrong!
Our Shameless Leaders
How many Americans even noticed when the news came out that the Biden gang tried to give away America’s sovereignty? Just days ago! Give it away, in 13 “amendments” to international “law” that Communist China just laughs at. Let crooks at the World Health Organization shut down our economy whenever they please!
Thank God, somehow the plan fell through. We are not told how: the globalists carry on their work in secret. Somebody let the air out of their tires. We don’t know whom, or how, or why.
Somehow we have to make it to the midterm elections.
Somehow we have to wipe out the Democrat Party, and all the rest of Far Left Crazy. Forever.
P.S.–I’ve never been able to figure out what’s with all the rather odd comments that this post provoked. Can you?
And you thought movie monsters were bad? You’ve never been to Davos!
Does your country have an “eSafety Commissioner”? If it does, that’s a sure sign that the government is collecting more of your money in taxes than is good for you.
Australia’s eSafety Commissioner won some applause at the World Economic Forum recently when she suggested “recalibration of a whole range of human rights,” especially free speech (https://www.zerohedge.com/political/freedom-speech-needs-recalibration-aussie-commissioner-sparks-outrage-wef).
Hmm… Recalibrated by… whom? Let me take a wild guess: by a cabal of elite globalist kooks in Davos–the World Economic Forum? Our rights “recalibrated” by them? Good Lord, who do they think they are? And where do they think they are?
Yeahbut, yeahbut! They’ve gotta protect us from the scourge of [sinister alp-horn fanfare, regular trumpets won’t do] Online Violence! Is that that thing where you turn on your computer and a boxing glove shoots out from your screen and hits you? Or is that just someone dissing the Drag Queen Story Hour? Oh, let the globalist decide!
What would “freedom of speech” and other basic human rights look like after these wicked evil persons finished “recalibrating” them?
Pray we never have to find out.
Authoritarian Far Left statists though they are, Democrats are still reluctant to admit that they would like to scrap the Bill of Rights–especially the right to free speech. We all know that they believe that free speech should only be for speech that they want to hear. Everything else would be “hate speech” or “disinformation,” for which you should be severely punished.
Even so, the latest Democrat mantra is “We support free speech…” And then there’s a “but” or an “as long as” which negates their support of any freedom.
Here are a few of the most popular caveats and add-ons. Each sentence starts with “We support free speech,” or even “Of course we support free speech!”
*”As long as it doesn’t cross the line.” (What line? It usually turns out that only the Dems know where that line is.)
*”As long as it’s used responsibly, with respect for all.” (Are they kidding? The day they show respect for anyone, they’ll be six feet underground.)
*”But it must never be used for disinformation.” Unless Democrats speak to deceive us; then it’s okay.
*”But misinformation does real harm, and must be curtailed!” Again, unless they’re the ones spouting the misinformation. Then it’s okay. But for everyone else, the penalties for simply being wrong must be really harsh.
*”As long as it doesn’t trample on anyone else’s free speech.” (You have to shut up because some trans performance artist had a tantrum when he real your blog post.)
You can see where this is heading. They’d love to be able to jail you for Climate Change Denial, mis-gendering, or laughing at John Kerry. But until they’re able to do that, they’ll have to be content with herding you toward the open jailhouse door.
Warning! Extremely toxic, may cause death if swallowed.
They create the crises and the messes, and then they offer to clean them up–for a price! Not much different from an old-fashioned extortion racket.
We are, of course, talking about the Global Governance-Great Reset-All the Money Flows to Davos crowd. They’ll give us health and safety and equality and blind dates that turn out really nice… as long as we give them damn near all our money and all of our freedoms except the “right” to fornicate. For reasons of their own, they’ll let us keep that one.
Toward a World Government Run by Lunatics
Thank God we have our midterm elections before Davos can pull the plug on our national sovereignty. A thorough wipe-out of the Democrats ought to keep us out of the globalists’ museum of shattered nations.
And by all that’s holy, America needs to be steered well clear of the World Economic Forum… and all the rest of it.
Just another form of force-feeding!
You knew they’d never be content with just censoring and silencing everyone who isn’t them. True, they’ll never be content with anything: that’s what it means to be a “progressive”: you’re always sitting on a nail.
And so… having created a “Bureau of Misinformation,” which is called The Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s 1984, the damned thing’s hardly up and running yet and they already want to expand its powers.
Lefty loon Nina Janowicz, tapped to direct the agency, now says she wants “trusty, verifiable people” (whatever the dickens that means) to “add context” to other people’s posts and tweets. ‘Cause Ex-President *Batteries Not Included sez just plain censorship “doesn’t go far enough.”
So let’s say you Tweet, “Joe Biden is a paragon of senility.” One of Janowicz’s playmates sees that and changes it to read, “Joe Biden is a paragon.” Or he could add some context: like, “The person who tweeted this is a Hater and a Neo Nazi!” Actually, it seems they can do anything that pops into their heads.
How do you get truth out of people who say there is no truth, there’s only “constructs”–and their “constructs” somehow get treated as absolute truth?
Work and pray for a total wipe-out of the Democrat Party this November.
God help us.
You’d think members of the media would take the lead in making sure our First Amendment remains alive and well. Boy, would you be wrong.
A columnist for Time Magazine–that’s the one that looks like a supermarket insert–is the latest Big Media non-entity to beat the drum against free speech (https://www.zerohedge.com/political/time-columnist-denounces-free-speech-white-mans-obsession).
Free speech, sez Charlotte Alter, is a “white man’s obsession.” Very much a man thing. Women don’t care about it. Non-whites don’t need it. You’re all racists.
Is it necessary to point out that Ms. Zero is, of course, a white liberal? I wonder if she’ll ever outgrow college. A lot of them don’t.
She cites a bunch of gurus and sages, “authorities”–that is, other media stooges and academics, like we should listen to them–who agree with her that speech that they don’t like should be suppressed. Censored. Canceled. And if the government won’t do it, Big Tech and woke corporations will gladly do the dirty work. She doesn’t think the First Amendment protects us from having our rights taken away by corporations.
Free speech–it’s a man thing. A white man thing.
And noozies wonder why they’re so despised by normal people.
Nope, no misinformation here! Just a couple of fake impeachments
By and large, I detest conspiracy theories. Lizard-people, 9/11 truthers, international you-know-who bankers–I really hate that schiff.
Well! NPR had a piece on the Firefox search page today: COVID “killed our mom,” but the real culprit was “conspiracy theories” and “misinformation” (https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2022/04/24/1089786147/covid-conspiracy-theories?utm_source=pocket-newtab).
National Public Radio. Hot dog. It’s only “public” because Congress sucks the money out of our paychecks to fund it. People who listen to NPR really love Big Brother.
No conspiracy theories at good ol’ NPR, eh? Oh, but theirs are true! And the ones you hear from “conservatives” are clearly wrong and just chock-full of misinformation and must be crushed and silenced before Big Brother’s feelings are hurt…
But not to worry! The Regime already has the cure for this–a new federal Bureau of Misinformation, part of the Dept. of Homeland Security (Drudge was right, all those years ago–we never should’ve created the DHS), to censor and silence and punish anyone who posts or publishes anything the government decides is “misinformation.” Millions of people are already calling it “the Ministry of Truth,” as imagined by George Orwell in 1984. Our Bureau is going to be run by a babbling left-wing fanatic, so you know that only Truth will be allowed in social media from now on.
Crikey. If they really could ban lying, there’d be no one left on Capitol Hill. How many minutes do you think Chuck Schumer can go without telling a lie?
The leftist dirty gym socks at NPR think that when America is fundamentally transformed into a socialist hell-hole, they’ll be lording it over us peasants, throwing Kobe beef parties while we gnaw the bark off trees.
Fools. When Big Brother finishes with us, he’ll come for you.
It’s always done that way. You’d know that if you knew any history.
