Elite Democrats Want to Curb Your Freedom



Rep. Jerry Nadler is a perfect spokesman for the contemporary Democrat Party. As he oversaw what can only be described as Stalinist impeachment hearings against President Trump, Nadler told 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. Nadler and his Democrat 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. Their position was endorsed by a recent op/ed piece in the ultra-liberal New York Times(Aug. 21, 2023): “If we want public office to have integrity,” said Dr. Adam Grant, “we might be better off eliminating elections altogether.”

We are at a dangerous moment in American 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 Democrat 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 surrender 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.

Today’s Democrat 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 Democrat Party wants to eviscerate the First Amendment. Any speech that contradicts Democrat Party talking points is considered “hate speech.” With their endorsement 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 Democrat mouthpiece, in his moment of transparency, has shown us what we can expect from the Democrats if they succeed in creating a one-party state. Entrepreneur and presidential candidate 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 Democrat Party 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 was against Second Amendment rights. He attempted to control what people eat and drink. It is only one short step from there to controlling what people say and think, how they behave, and where and when they can travel. “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,” said Investor’s Business Daily. “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 Justice Department and 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 an alienated special interest group. They want power to reside in the Deep State, the cadre of unelected bureaucrats in Washington, DC. 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.

Ward Clark reports in Red State (Aug. 21, 2023) that 14 American cities— Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington, DC, and Seattle—are part of a globalist organization known as the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group that advocates banning meat and dairy consumption and the use of private automobiles, limiting each person to three new clothing items per year, and one “short-haul” round-trip flight every three years per person. “It is, of course, the grossest of understatements,” said Clark, “to say that all of these proposals are anathema to the concept of personal liberty.”

The left-leaning elite who are pushing for limitations on personal freedom include the mega-wealthy entrepreneurs at the head of Big Tech. These people have so much money they feel they can tell the rest of us what is best for us, says historian and political commentator Victor Davis Hanson. “They have nothing but disdain and hatred for the middle class. They hate us,” Hanson says. “They are very dangerous people,” he adds. “The mindset is, I’m doing it all for you. I’m using all my money for you. That’s Orwell’s Animal Farm or 1984.”

The antidote: electing a Republican in 2024.

Biden and the Democrats Are Turning America into a Police State



“When those who are entrusted to enforce the law,” said author and Fox host Gregg Jarrett, “instead, abuse their power to pursue innocent people in the name of justice it is the worst kind of oppression.” The ongoing weaponization of government agencies and the courts in order to stop Donald Trump is the quintessence of such oppression.

The initial goal of this scheme was the protection from prosecution and the subsequent election of Hillary Clinton. We know from reading the emails of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that high-ranking members of the FBI were working behind the scenes to ensure Trump’s defeat in the 2016 election. When that failed, the Democrats launched the second step in their plan—the special counsel investigation run by Robert Mueller to prove Trump-Russia collusion.

When that failed, step three was put in motion—the assault on Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago and a nefarious barrage of phony indictments leveled against Trump and many of his supporters. The indictments are baseless. Questioning the outcome of an election is not a crime. “One of the election crimes Trump is charged with,” said Kurt Schlichter on Townhall, “is that he allegedly conspired to violate a civil right of American citizens. What right, you ask? Well, a convoluted version of the right to vote, which apparently he conspired to interfere with by insisting that elections be honest, transparent, and unrigged. No one else has ever been prosecuted for that.”

If successful, the indictments would put Trump in a jail cell for the rest of his life. This campaign amounts to a criminal conspiracy by Democrats to destroy the leading Republican contender for the 2024 nomination. It is an overt attempt to interfere with the outcome of a presidential election. Ironically, this is precisely the charge that the Democrats want to hang on Trump.

The Democrats have not recovered from Trump’s 2016 victory. As a political outsider sworn to “drain the swamp,” Trump scares the pants off the Washington elite. They will do anything to protect their lucrative rackets, whether their tactics are legal or not. Meanwhile, Biden is getting away with the worst corruption ever perpetrated by an American president.

Along with Biden, a guilty cast of characters is going free—Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, James Comey, Susan Rice, John Brennan, Barack Obama, and others. Gregg Jarrett has spelled out their crimes in agonizing detail. Why haven’t they been investigated? The answer: the guilty parties are the same corrupt people who run the justice system. For justice to prevail, they would be required to investigate themselves.

One consequence of the anti-Trump cabal is the loss of confidence by the American public in our system of justice. The public understands that we have a double standard. Justice and fair play do not apply to conservatives and Trump supporters.

Let’s do a little pretending. You are living in East Germany in 1960. Stasi, the repressive secret police, have arrested you and threatened that if you don’t testify against someone they want to condemn, you will spend the next 40 years behind bars and the state will go after your spouse, your children, and your beloved dog Fido. Ah, but you say, “This is America. That could never happen here.” Well guess what, this used to be the land of the free. The quaint notion that we benefit from due process has evaporated along with Cinderella’s ball gown and fancy coach.

Thanks to our politicized justice system, General Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Dinesh D’Souza and now President Trump have seen their lives destroyed because of their political opposition to the corrupt Democratic Party. If the powers of government can be weaponized to sabotage a former president, what perversion of justice can be directed at you and me?

Former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, author of Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice, described a justice system consisting of out-of-control prosecutors who will do anything to get a conviction. She has been proven correct in a way she never anticipated. Powell is one of the Trump supporters targeted by the Democrat-fueled indictments. Goodbye USA, hello Stasi. If you refuse to support Biden, we will destroy you, your family, and your dog.

It’s the sort of thing we would expect to happen in North Korea. A venal gang of Obama alumni is getting away with a perversion of American justice. When a government doesn’t have a crime but starts a campaign to find one, that’s called a police state. Unless the anti-Trump indictments are quashed and we address the real scandal in our government—corruption in the Oval Office, DOJ, FBI, and IRS—we can kiss the American system of justice goodbye.

Do you feel like you wake up every day to a bad dream and then struggle with the fact that your nightmare is actually reality in America today? Thankfully, the polls of Democrats and Republicans alike are sending a clear message—we’ve had enough of dementia Joe. He is often incoherent with or without his teleprompter. After speaking, he consistently wanders waiting to be guided to an exit. He tries to kiss and grope women who fall into his meandering web. Heaven help him if he would actually have to handle an open press conference with unscripted questions. The man seldom even works; he majors in rest and vacations.

And yet, somehow, Biden manages to keep making executive orders and decisions that move America further into “progressive” darkness. Obviously, somebody other than the President is managing the puppet strings and moving America faster and further into institutionalizing leftist policies.

Fearful of Biden facing Trump in the 2024 election, the Democrats have managed to tie up the leading Republican candidate with 91 indictments. Their hope is that the legal quagmire and trials will restrict his ability to mount an effective campaign. Be clear. The Democrats have one goal—keep Trump out of office and hopefully in jail.

Speaking of jail, where are the investigative reporters unraveling the crimes of “the Big Guy” Biden. We have recorded statements by Joe bragging about bribing Ukrainian leaders with US funds conditional on firing the Ukrainian district attorney looking into prosecuting Burisma. Vice President Joe Biden stopped the man whose investigation could have implicated his son, Hunter Biden. The Democrats keep claiming that Hunter’s problems have nothing to do with the President.

Unfortunately for Joe, in spite of such claims more and more evidence is mounting that the President and the Biden family benefited from Hunter’s influence peddling. Hunter Biden’s email to his daughter Naomi Biden that recently became public makes clear the father’s involvement. The email has been verified by the Washington Post and is clearly damning.

According to Hunter’s statement in that email, President Joe Biden demanded and received payment for his influence. It reads, “I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

This email and related information could have been made public two years ago. It could have impacted the 2020 election. If the House of Representatives initiates an impeachment inquiry, more of this information will be front and center and hard for the left-leaning media to avoid covering. With Joe Biden using aliases to send hundreds of additional incriminating emails, the evidence is just now coming to light.

If Biden is innocent of any wrongdoing, he should be cooperating and welcoming an investigation. Instead, he has already created a “war room” to be ready to fight any impeachment inquiry. Even with an inquiry, it’s unlikely that the Senate would have the votes to Impeach the President. But the more evidence that comes out, the more Democrats behind the scenes will likely be asking Biden to step down. Republicans did it with Nixon, and the Democrats would be wise to do it with Biden rather than risk him running again, losing, and taking their majority down with him.

The President’s future legal problems are not the only thing that is wreaking havoc on the American society. There is sexual confusion that is enraging many voters on the right and the left. In many states, biological men are claiming to be women and being allowed to compete in sporting events and winning against biological women. Politicians and even judges are refusing to define what a woman is. Most of us are pretty sure we know!

One meme that has been circulating makes the difference very clear. The world population is 8,030,610,062. People born from women: 8,030,610,062. People born from men: 0. They go on to suggest, “Feel free to fact check.” If men who call themselves women want to compete in sports, let them compete against other men instead of forcing their way into women’s locker rooms to live a lie.

In America today, they are not content limiting sexual confusion to adults. Many leftists are condoning trans surgery of young children to “change their sex” without parental approval. Schools can’t give an aspirin without parental approval, but in some states, children can decide to have irreversible surgery that mutilates their bodies. The parents are still responsible for caring for their children when they have to pick up the pieces from this child abuse.

Supporters call it “gender affirming care,” and it’s not all that rare. From 2016-2020, the American Medical Association reports 3,678 gender affirming surgeries done on children twelve to eighteen years of age. Columbia University has found that 3,315 children had breast surgery and 405 had genital surgery at a young age. This is not “care” of any kind! If anyone wants to do this to their body, wait until they are an adult and pay for it themselves.

If this is not enough, we have an administration claiming we have a secure border when millions continue to stream across our border in record numbers. Even sanctuary cities like New York have had enough. America takes pride in welcoming legal immigrants. It’s time to close down the flood of illegals.

Add to that the dismal performance in public schools around the country. Our kids are falling behind, and Democrats, coveting the support of teacher unions, refuse to even consider school choice. Minority parents want it, and Biden and his administration stand in the way.

It’s clear that America is hard to recognize as the country we once loved and cherished. It’s rapidly becoming a leftist loony bin in need of an intervention! Let’s hope that comes in November of 2024.
