The Democratic Party Must Be Soundly Defeated If the Republic Is to Survive

The Democratic Party, by supporting big government and the Deep State at the expense of the individual, threatens to transform America into a totalitarian nightmare. That is why we need to vote the Democrats out of power.

The respect accorded the rights of the individual is what makes our society unique in world history. This is a first in human development. Never before has respect for the individual been placed on a pedestal. No prior human society enjoyed as its core value the protection of individual rights. No prior human society took the trouble of writing it down in a single document. The U.S. Constitution, by limiting federal power, is designed to protect the individual citizen from external coercion.

Before the Declaration of Independence, the individual served the society or the country in which he lived. What we consider “totalitarianism” was the norm. “Man should not be in the service of society,” said philosopher Joseph Campbell. “Society should be in the service of man. When man is in the service of society,” Campbell warned, “you have a monster state, and that’s what is threatening the world at this minute.” The Democratic Party is mounting that threat.

An inverse relationship exists between size and scope of government, and respect for individual rights. Where there is more of one, there will be less of the other. As power is transferred from elected representatives to an unaccountable bureaucracy—the Deep State, we relinquish more and more of our independence.

The federal government under Obama and Biden has been trying to insinuate itself into every facet of our lives. “Every single one of [Obama’s] initiatives,” said American Thinker, was “directed at increasing government control in every area, with a corresponding decrease in individual liberty.” Biden is following through by empowering the Deep State and the media to crush his political opponents. “[Biden is calling for] censorship of political opinions,” said Tucker Carlson. “What you’re seeing here is dangerous. There’s no other way to describe it.”

The goal of the Democratic Party is a one-party state. The Biden administration has declared that the ‘most lethal elements’ in our society are political conservatives. As a result of this unsupported allegation, the DOJ and FBI are being weaponized to go after Republicans. “The FBI is now an organization solely focused on destroying the domestic enemies of the Democratic Party,” said talk radio show host Jesse Kelly. The Deep Staters in the DOJ have just announced the creation of a new domestic terrorism unit that will target “anti-authority ideologues,” i.e., conservatives and Republicans. The implication is that if you distrust Biden’s government, you are considered a terrorist.

The Democratic Party’s ultimate alternative to democracy is socialism, where the government takes control of everything. Socialism is a form of big government that despises the individual and has been accompanied in every case by totalitarianism. “While democracy seeks equality in liberty,” wrote Alexis de Toqueville in 1848, “socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

Political freedom, said F.A. Hayek in The Road to Serfdom, signifies “freedom from coercion, freedom from the arbitrary power of other men.” George Orwell, author of 1984, knew from personal experience how big government can trample all over individual rights. Orwell was particularly impressed by Hayek’s statement that “collectivism gives to a tyrannical minority such powers as the Spanish Inquisitors never dreamed of.” Orwell and Hayek agreed that liberty and security are at opposite ends of the political spectrum. Big government, which makes a false promise of security, is capable of extinguishing liberty.

The Supreme Court is beginning to question the power of the Deep State. Justices Gorsuch, Alito, and Thomas want to scale back what Congress is constitutionally permitted to allow regulatory agencies to do. “[If they are successful, it would] vastly increase the power of the courts to overturn agency regulations,” said Noah Feldman on Bloomberg. “That, in turn, would put the agencies in fear of their own continued existence each time they regulated aggressively.”

In the meantime, as Orwell warned, “Totalitarianism, if not fought against, could triumph anywhere.” The Democrats are working overtime to ensure that it happens here. It is imperative that their seditious efforts be defeated in 2022 and 2024.

EEK ELON! Musk Sexual Assault Story Comes to Light Ahead of Twitter Deal

Musk claims that the story was a “politically-motivated hit piece”.

Published

Just as Elon Musk was set to make an unprecedented mark on the social media landscape, his proverbial train has been derailed.

Musk, who has been bickering with Twitter over their phony user data, was set to drop $44 billion on the deal, when he was suddenly sideswiped by a SpaceX-related sexual assault allegation.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk denied a sexual assault claim from a former flight attendant, whom the company reportedly paid $250,000 as part of a severance agreement in 2018.

Musk, in a Thursday tweet following the story, claimed the story should be “viewed through a political lens.”

The attendant worked on a contract basis in the cabin crew for SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet. She accused Musk of exposing his erect penis to her, rubbing her leg without consent, and offering to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage, according to Business Insider.

It gets creepier…

A declaration signed by the attendant’s friend detailed the incident, which reportedly took place in 2016. Email correspondence and other records, which the friend provided Business Insider, reportedly corroborate the claims. The attendant reportedly told her friend that SpaceX encouraged her to get licensed as a masseuse, so she could give Musk massages. She said Musk propositioned her during one such massage.

Musk claimed that the story was a “politically-motivated hit piece”, and pointed to his decades of time in the public eye with no scandals as corroborating evidence of his alleged innocence.

NBC Finally Admits That Hunter Biden Laptop Story is Real

Objective journalism, this was not.

Published

NBC

The selective ambivalence of the mainstream media is just diet lies, we must always remember this.  It’s like poisoning a healthy cereal but only telling folks about the “essential vitamins and minerals”, leaving off the part about the cyanide.

So when the infotainment industry decides to simply ignore a story, arbitrarily, they are withholding the bigger, more important truth.  The full truth.

Such is the story of the Hunter Biden “laptop from Hell”, that the mainstream media wouldn’t talk about at all until Joe Biden was elected President.  To do so would cast doubt on his family’s ability to avoid nepotism and/or trouble, and may have swayed the 2020 election.

But now that there has been a significant amount of pressure put on them, they’re beginning to crack.

NBC News is the latest legacy news organization to offer delayed legitimacy to the Hunter Biden scandal after downplaying the revelations from his laptop during the 2020 presidential election.

NBC published a story Thursday headlined, “Analysis of Hunter Biden’s hard drive shows he, his firm took in about $11 million from 2013 to 2018, spent it fast,” citing documents showing the fortune he made while working for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, as well as through his business ties to a Chinese energy company. It also aired a package about the story Wednesday on “NBC Nightly News,” its flagship evening program.

The report also highlighted some of Hunter Biden’s expenditures showing he “spent more than $200,000 per month from October 2017 through February 2018 on luxury hotel rooms, Porsche payments, dental work and cash withdrawals.”

And then:

“NBC News obtained a copy of Biden’s laptop hard drive from a representative of Rudy Giuliani and examined Biden’s business dealings from 2013 to 2018 based on the information available on the hard drive and the scope of the documents released by the Senate,” the report stated.

This new report flies in the face of how NBC News and its sister cable network MSNBC covered the Hunter Biden laptop’s contents when the story was broken by the New York Post in 2020.

Objective journalism, this was not, and our nation must continue to demand better, lest we wish to fall into the propaganda dystopia that nations such as China and Russia are dealing with.
