Wake Up — The Democratic Party is the Party of Socialist Tyranny (Opinion)

Thoughtful analysis from a negotiation expert…

Published

on

Rep. Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is a perfect spokesman for the contemporary Democratic Party. As he oversees what can only be described as Stalinist impeachment hearings, Nadler tells us the following: “We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems.” In plain language, Nadler does not believe in the election process or the US Constitution. This sudden moment of candor should be a wake-up call for all of us. Nadler and his Democratic colleagues, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, and Nancy Pelosi, would prefer that important decisions be made by the Washington elite and the voters be damned.

We are at a dangerous moment in US history in which political freedom is under attack. Our country is based on the notion that individual rights take precedence over unlimited governmental power. The American Left and its senior partners, the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, want to destroy that notion, replacing our government with a totalitarian socialist state run by unaccountable bureaucrats. Don’t laugh. It could happen faster than you think.

For many years, Democrats have been allowing the federal government to insinuate itself into every facet of our lives. “Every single one of [Obama’s] initiatives,” says American Thinker, was “directed at increasing government control in every area, with a corresponding decrease in individual liberty.” An inverse relationship exists between size/scope of government and respect for individual rights. Where there is more of one, there will be less of the other. As we allow the government to be responsible for more and more of our needs, we relinquish more and more of our independence. The American Left’s ultimate alternative to democracy is socialism, where the government takes care of everything. Socialism is a form of big government that despises the individual and has been accompanied in every case by totalitarianism.

The current crop of Democratic presidential candidates is notable for advocating socialist policies, from redistribution of income and government control over healthcare to the “Green New Deal.” As part of its campaign to impose socialism on America, the Democratic Party wants to eviscerate the First Amendment. The monstrous concept known as political correctness, supported by Democrats, is a way of stifling free expression in favor of socially controlled thought. Any speech that contradicts Democratic Party talking points is considered “hate speech.” With their support of identity politics—where you take sides based on your race, religion, sex, ethnicity, and social background—Democrats are hoping to divide and conquer. “Emphasis on group identities and group rights and progressives’ clamoring for social justice will lead inexorably to a collectivist tyranny,” wrote David Horowitz in Big Agenda.

Another Democratic mouthpiece, in his moment of transparency, has shown us what we can expect if the Democrats take over. Presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg said that he thinks “there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom.” As with Nadler’s comment regarding elections, Bloomberg is giving us an important clue about Democratic political philosophy. “Bloomberg is the archetype of the ‘Nanny knows best’ authoritarian who will happily deprive you of your rights and your freedoms in the name of protecting you,” wrote Scott Shackford in Reason Magazine. As mayor of New York City, said Jeff Dunetz in The Jewish Press, “Michael Bloomberg was a tyrant who tried to control almost every aspect of people’s lives.” He supported secret surveillance of US citizens. He attempted to control what people eat and drink. He was against Second Amendment rights. “Bloomberg has decided that his destiny is to lead our nation out of the burden of individual liberty and personal responsibility,” said Jeff Knox at lewrockwell.com, “and into the peace of conformity, subjugation, and dependency.” 

“Bloomberg’s attitude is dangerous — and ubiquitous,” says Investor’s Business Daily. “Elected officials all across this land of the free feel the same as he does, though they rarely express it as vocally as he has. If the state can infringe on freedom at ‘certain times,’ then it can do it at any time. Once that wall has been breached, it’s only a matter of how far government goes.” Investor’s Business Daily reminds us that the infringements have occurred at a startling pace: the massive welfare state, weaponization of the IRS, Obamacare, subsidies for politically favored groups, First Amendment violations, unequal protection under the law, FBI surveillance of American citizens.

The Democrats want to take away your right of free expression, redistribute your income, and reduce you to a member of some alienated special interest group. They want power to reside in the Deep State, the cadre of unelected bureaucrats residing in the Washington, DC, area. If they succeed in supplanting capitalism with socialism, the middle class will be taxed out of existence. The incentive to achieve will disappear, as it has in parts of Europe. When the productive segment of our population has had enough, they will pack up and leave and America will turn into Venezuela.

And so we have the baseless impeachment proceedings against a duly-elected president who is fulfilling his promise to make America great again. Donald Trump stands in the way of the Democratic Party’s authoritarian goals. If they don’t get rid of him, the voters may get rid of the Democrats. Now that is something to root for.

Vaccine Manufacturer Now Says Three Shots Required to Fend Off Omicron

At what point will this all end?

Published

on

Our third COVID-19 winter is now arriving, and there appear to be varying ideas about just what the world should expect.

Winter time has long brought about fears of an increased spread of the illness, thanks to the fact that many more folks will the gathering indoors, where the virus will have an opportunity to spread with less resistance.

But the newest variant of the virus has been described as “mild” by the doctors most familiar with it, and even the normally-glum Dr. Anthony Fauci seems to have backed off of his earlier concerns a bit.

Pfizer this week released a statement suggesting that their vaccine, originally administered in two doses, will require a third shot to be effective against omicron.

Preliminary lab studies show two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine may not provide sufficient protection against the Omicron coronavirus variant, but three doses are able to neutralize it, the companies said in a news release on Wednesday.

Samples from people who had two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine saw, on average, a more than 25-fold reduction in neutralization ability against the Omicron variant than the earlier virus, “indicating that two doses of BNT162b2 may not be sufficient to protect against infection with the Omicron variant,” the companies said.

The companies said two doses may still provide protection against severe disease.

“Although two doses of the vaccine may still offer protection against severe disease caused by the Omicron strain, it’s clear from these preliminary data that protection is improved with a third dose of our vaccine,” Pfizer Chairman and CEO Albert Bourla said in a statement. “Ensuring as many people as possible are fully vaccinated with the first two dose series and a booster remains the best course of action to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

The news is sure to elicit some grumbling from the masses, who are very much over the continued hysteria regarding COVID-19.

Chris Cuomo Preparing Massive Lawsuit Aimed at Former Employer

But CNN INSTANTLY put the kibosh on it!

Published

on

Things over at CNN have been rough in recent days, and they certainly aren’t smoothing out anytime soon.

The infotainment network is facing an onslaught of trouble of late, thanks largely to the actions of Chris Cuomo – formerly the top draw at the station – thanks to his inappropriate actions in regard to his brother’s sexual assault scandal during his time as the Governor of New York.

Cuomo has since been fired, and a war of words has erupted between he and his former employer.  Just yesterday it was reported that CNN was rebuking Cuomo’s claims that they were aware of the poor behavior of their primetime star.

Today, Cuomo is setting himself up to sue CNN.

Fired CNN host Chris Cuomo is set to sue the network if it balks at paying him at least $18 million to cover what’s left on his contract, sources told The Post on Monday.

Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter.

His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed, sources said, adding that Chris Cuomo would also likely seek damages.

The network was not entertained by the idea.

But CNN has “no intention of paying [Chris] Cuomo a penny,” an insider said.

“If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar,” the source added.

Cuomo has also left his SiriusXM radio program this week, leaving the longtime anchor with no audience to complain to.
