The stations of uncensored expression are closing down; the lights are going out; but there is still time for those to whom freedom… mean[s] something, to consult together. Let me, then, speak in truth and earnestness while time remains……A state of society where men may not speak their minds, where children denounce their parents to the police, where a business man or small shopkeeper ruins his competitor by telling tales about his private opinions; such a state of society cannot long endure if brought into contact with the healthy outside world. The light of civilised progress with its tolerances and co-operation, with its dignities and joys, has often in the past been blotted out. But I hold the belief that we have now at last got far enough ahead of barbarism to control it, and to avert it, if only we realise what is afoot and make up our minds in time. We shall do it in the end. But how much harder our toil for every day’s delay!
– – Winston Churchill, October 16, 1938, Broadcast to the United States from London
Good morning, kids. In a few short hours, we are going to enter a phase of our lives where we will be confronted with situations, perhaps even of life and death, that are going to challenge us in ways that until recently seemed unimaginable. Not just physically and emotionally but in ways that will force us to confront who we are and what we believe as rational, decent, G-d fearing human beings. If anyone thinks this is hyperbole, you have not been paying attention to what has been happening all around us for the past four years and longer. Check that; it’s more likely that those who had not been paying attention at all would be stunned at the implications of things like re-education camps and de-programming of conservatives, purging of our armed forces of anyone with impure thoughts (i.e. pro-American), businesses firing employees or refusing to serve customers for mere political affiliations, a daughter mocking her mother for being beaten up in DC on Black Wednesday and getting her fired because she protested the election theft, and on and on and on.
Just to be clear, it is not Orwell’s 1984, it is the Soviet Union of 1937 returned from the hereafter with a human face. There will be no Gulags; millions of people will not be executed. The dissidents will be dealt with “humanely.” They will be purged from the universities, media, government jobs, and major corporations. The Bolsheviks; motto, “who does not work does not eat,” will be replaced with a new one — “who does not obey does not eat.”
Dissent will be suppressed by a brute force of government agencies, including the power of the DOJ to bring frivolous lawsuits and bankrupt its victims and destroy their families…
… The ubiquitous sentinel of American democracy infamous for its colossal failures, the FBI, will regularly discover plots against the government, find caches of weapons and fabricate preposterous accusations against political opponents. As a deterrent, they will be given harsh sentences. The administration will harness every incident to seize greater control over the nation.
The people and businesses are beginning to fear the all-powerful government that is perfectly willing to deploy a full arsenal of state weaponry, such as DOJ, FBI, IRS, EPA, DOE and its powerful FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission), DHS (Department of Homeland Security), DOL (Department of Labor), and other assets we may not know about. The corporations got the massage, ending contributions to the Republican Party…
… The Bolsheviks’ aphorism: “We can only have two parties: one in power, the other in prison” will be replaced with “one in power, the other a permanent second-tier loser” assigned to maintain an image of the two-party system.
Neither education nor life experience has prepared Americans for grasping the epochal shift that took place this November. It is not surprising. From ancient times, the most tragic events of history have been triggered by people who, despite the obvious, failed to forecast the future.
And now, we have the National Guard – impugned and maligned by the Dems as perhaps infiltrated by “white supremacists” of questionable loyalty – guarding a sham inauguration behind barbed wire fences. It’s a phony media stunt, but one that as Daniel Greenfield states has a more malevolent purpose.
D.C. isn’t under military guard to protect our government, but a partisan political agenda.
The Democrats didn’t want troops in D.C. when their own were rioting during President Trump’s inauguration or violently attacking the White House. They don’t need 25,000 troops to stop a few hundred protesters. They need them as a show of force to suppress political opposition.
Biden and the Democrats are using a military deployment for a show of political force, using a manufactured crisis to rally support behind their radical agenda, while suppressing dissent…
…America is not a banana republic. There is no place for military theater, lists of enemies, or declaring political opponents to be enemies of the state. The Democrats have already embraced fascism before even formally taking power. Fascists always claim to be seizing power in reaction to an emergency. The manufactured emergency is here. The power grab comes next.
I dread the future, but I am eternally grateful for President Donald Trump. Now more than ever, as the Enemy and Judases like Mitch McConnell try to eradicate him even after he leaves the White House, seemingly for the last time, they will not destroy what he started. A popular movement to restore this nation as founded as the beacon of freedom and the last best hope for a civilized, peaceful world.
Sir Edward Grey, the British Foreign Secretary, on the eve of the First World War, lamented to his friend, “the lamps are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.”
The lamps are going out all over America. G-d be with us.
