As is the case when we draw nearer to election time, the press is full of dubious polls and the rantings of media-designated seers and pundits. What I rely on is the evidence of my own eyes: higher inflation, ever higher taxes, higher energy costs, and more extreme efforts by the administration and Big Three investment funds to impose their will on us, particularly in managing production of things the morons at the top have no idea how to produce or distribute.
Most disturbing to me as a person who haunts social media for links to articles, views, and insights I might otherwise miss, was the story this week on how the administration — which most certainly leaked COVID and Hunter Biden disinformation to the mainstream media — used its iron fist in a velvet glove to censor the flow of information on alternate media.
The beauty of our federal system is that it can throw some roadblocks into the march toward fascism. And so it was that two states sued to fight against the administration using private social media platforms to censor speech.
Discovery in that case has proved their suspicions were warranted. Scientists and doctors who disagreed with the CDC messaging on COVID were effectively censored by “45 officials at five agencies — the Department of Homeland Security, CUSA, CDC, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases along with White House officials, including White House lawyer Dana Remus, Rob Flaherty, Deputy Assistant to Biden, and advisor Andy Slavitt.” …
… We await the fruits of discovery in that case respecting the full extent of the administration’s censorship through social media of the Hunter laptop story, though Facebook’s controlling shareholder Mark Zuckerberg already confessed that they did.
