In the mist a of a worldwide disaster, there are those that will use this catastrophe as a power grab. It has been said by corrupt opportunists to never let a crisis go to waste. Indeed, the democrats are willing and able to use this crisis as a power grab at the expense of the American people.
The vision that Clyburn and the democrats want is more socialist controls over our Constitutional freedoms. Starting with overwhelming the government support system with money for pet projects. In a sense, bankrupting the treasury for selfish purposes. This will create a great demand and dependency for bigger government. This is the opportunity for the democrats to do things they’ve always been wanting to do for decades.
The democrats have wanted to eliminate the Second Amendment since the FDR regime. The very right to defend yourself, your family, your property, and especially against government tyranny. What the democrats want is to replicate the spread of socialism throughout the world here at home. The first step in totalitarianism is disarming the people. When the people cannot defend themselves from tyranny, then it’s easy to use force to controls on the people. Democrats have been attempting to control the people for a long time and now they see this crisis as their best opportunity to seize power, forever.
In order to accomplish the democrats socialist goals, they must first align themselves with globalist organizations. They need a crisis that will frighten people into giving up their rights for the illusion of socialism security. They will motivate people and organizations with economic, social, and amoral incentives. These people and organizations only have their own agendas. Agenda’s that are not aligned with the needs of the American people. Instead, the democrats will use these organizations to enrich themselves and their families. It is a practice that both parties have done for years. They will write legislation so that they can skim off appropriated taxpayer’s money. How else does elected officials make millions on a $174K salary? Socialists will cheat and steal with impunity and with no accountability.
The consequences of allowing creeping socialism into government and society is that once it takes hold, it’s damn hard to get rid of it. Entitlements. Many of the socialist controls on the Populace will be in government entitlement programs. Getting the people hooked on government welfare programs. Getting illegal immigrants legal status so they can receive government benefits. Allowing illegals to vote. Rigging the election process to favor the ruling party. Any opposition will be just for show with little to no shared power. Lastly, controlling the media. Keeping a state propaganda machine delivering only state approved news and programming.
All these democrat objectives are slowly becoming in place. The majority of the fake news media is a branch of the democrat party. CNN and MSNBC have refused to air Trump’s coronavirus task force briefings. Calling the task force briefings a Trump mini-rally and dismissing the information the public needs. The big three alphabet news outlets, ABC, NBC, and CBS, all coordinate together to repeat the same state propaganda. I’m watching Fox News change their once brand of “Fair and Balance”, and “We Report, You Decide”, change into a watered-down report that excludes related information to make an informed decision.
Luckily there are smaller, hungry, news organizations starting up to clear the void of big media misinformation. These news startups are demonstrating objective journalism that we have never seen with the established fake news media. My hope is these new media startups reporting will get more attention. Many of them have channels on YouTube and other internet websites.
Margaret Thatcher once said about socialism, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” Socialism’s goal is eventually communism. Most of the democrats, not all, but most are socialists. The most outspoken of the democrat socialists, besides Breadline Bernie Sanders, are the members of the so called “Squad”.
I consider these four idiots the Socialist Brides of Dracula. As with all socialists, they use imaginary social strife to promote socialist ideology. Class inequalities, racial division, unequal pay, and claim America is an unjust country. All the usual dystopian claims that have no basis in reality.
Never let a crisis go to waste, as the socialist democrats often say. The coronavirus has been a socialist dream: Americans unemployed and needing a nanny state government to take care of them. In the 1930’s during the Great Depression, socialism was also influencing government officials. It’s a different time now than then. We have information network that moves at the speed of light. Truth and lies both travel at the same speed. It’s very important to be able to filter out the truth from the lies.
As before in history, creeping socialism, isn’t going away. You can see how socialist Governor’s and Mayor’s that are taking advantage of the coronavirus crisis to enforce rules to control people’s activities. Michigan’s governor, Gretchen Whitmer, rules are a perfect example of overreaching socialism. Virginia’s governor, Ralph (Gov. Blackface) Northam, anti-Constitutional restrictions on liberties is another sign of creeping socialism. Where democrats are in power, it goes to their heads very quickly and develops into Machiavellianism psychopathy. They will justify their Draconian decisions as the ends to justify the means. Restricting church services, what you can purchase in stores, what activities you can do, where you can go, where you park your car, what foods you can purchase, how many people can associate together, and all these rules will be reasoned as before for your own good. Someone else will decide what’s essential and what’s not. Where have we’ve heard this before?
Our weather today started with warm sunshine. It was so nice that I had breakfast on my lanai. By the afternoon, the clouds started rolling in and the temperatures dropped. Temperatures are in the mid 70’s with humidity at 81%. No rain is expected, but tradewinds will be returning.
It’s day 22 of the Stay At Home directive, and it’s also (Lā ʻAuhau) Tax Day. I’ve already sent in my taxes. I had to pay taxes this year! YEA! First time I won’t be getting a government interest free tax return. I don’t like getting tax returns, because I don’t get any interest on tax returns.
