The Inmates Running the Asylum Want to Criminalize Non-Leftist Speech and Assembly

As I have written here many times as a disclaimer, I am not a Trump supporter and disagree with him on many issues, especially immigration, trade, and foreign policy.

However, I do agree with Trump on the need to “Drain the Swamp!” which, sadly, he didn’t do.

The Donald is big on government central planning, and he is enamored by military and men in uniforms with lots of medals, and I absolutely do not think that way.

In fact, one authoritarian nationalist radio talk host recently was critical of some athlete who “”disrespects the flag,” and I’m saying, c’mon now, it’s a flag. If you like your flag you can keep your flag — does it matter what other people think about it or do with a flag? Nope.

But, if there were any time to “Drain the Swamp!” now is that time. USSA is quickly becoming totalitarian nutso society.

And now, Nancy Lugosi wants to have a commission to investigate wha happen on January 6th, the so-called “insurrection” that wasn’t, so what she’s really putting together is a January 6th Whitewash commission, to cover up the FBI’s role in instigating the whole riot. And cover up the role of Antifa as well.

The people who actually attended Trump’s rally that preceded the Capitol riot were wandering around the Capitol after their long walk from the rally to the Capitol in which a riot was already taking place by supposedly “Trump supporters,” and Antifa agitators/FBI agents.

The Trump supporters’ grievances were that the 2020 election was indeed stolen by way of massive widespread vote fraud. They were intending to convince then-VP Mike Pence to not approve of the election certification process.

Swamp creatures like Nanci Lugosi and their media groupies are attempting to cover-up the truth about January 6th and criminalize the speech and protest of those who disagree with the Swamp regime and who want to expose its election stealing.

These Swamp bureaucrat-parasites are trying to prohibit the people from exercising their right to freedom of assembly and their right to gather en masse to “speak truth to power.”

The Swamp creatures want to stifle this kind of freedom of speech which exposes their crimes against the people.

During the 2016 Presidential campaign, the Swamp creatures and their media hangers-on were disturbed by all those Trump campaign rallies with thousands and thousands of people who were not angry leftists and Marxists. So that was another reason for Covid prohibitions of “super-spreader” crowds, because the Swamp creatures were afraid of a repeat of 2016 Trump rallies.

So, the totalitarians in control now want to criminalize freedom of protest and freedom of assembly when it comes to those who disagree with the Swamp regime, but allow and promote “protest” and assembly when it comes to leftist rioters, looters, arsonists, marauders, and murderers.

The news media for months now have been referring to such election-stealing allegations as “baseless” or “without evidence.” All those court cases that were thrown out by judges like 60 or 80 cases, even though most of those judges dismissed the cases without any evidentiary hearing and without even listening to any witnesses or seeing any of the evidence prepared.

There were hundreds and hundreds of witnesses who had signed sworn affidavits testifying to the shenanigans on election day and election night, including over 100 witnesses in Michigan alone. (The affidavit-signers know that lying on an affidavit is like committing perjury while under oath in a court of law. So, would they lie on a sworn affidavit?)

On election night the vote counting was going on and it seemed obvious that Trump was winning by a lot, and the apparatchiks couldn’t stand for that, so the vote counting just stopped. Really? It just stopped? And in the swing states? And then what happened? Were the Republican poll observers being made to leave the premises? And then suitcases and coolers full of fake Biden ballots being brought in? Was all that made up by witnesses?

I have linked to many, many articles, like the long list of articles toward the end of this post which give a lot of details of the election fraud. And here are a couple of new articles from Gateway Pundit I have come across: Did Stacey Abrams’ Firm Hire a Weak Uninspired Temporary Workforce to Hide Election Fraud with Process Nightmares? And, Antrim Co Attorney Sends BLISTERING Response To Gutless MI GOP Senators Who Recommend Dem AG Nessel Investigate “Those who spread unfounded [election] conspiracy theories or false information” And, Fulton County Hires CRIMINAL Attorneys to Stop Election Audit. So add those to my long list of articles linked at the beginning of this paragraph.

And now we hear that Rudy Giuliani has had his law license suspended by the New York State Supreme Court, in a ruling by fascists who accuse him of making “false and misleading statements” regarding vote fraud in the 2020 Presidential election. I don’t think the robed imbeciles showed any evidence that Giuliani’s statements were in fact false, however.

As usual with all the other shenanigans in government and elections, the media and activists will call all the vote fraud allegations “conspiracy theory” which is a phenomenon James Bovard discussed in this article. Anything that exposes government criminality is a “conspiracy theory” to its army of bureaucrats and their enablers, and their media lapdogs.

Government and its media stenographers lie about everything now.

The government and media apparatchiks lied about “Trump-Russia collusions,” and they lied about January 6th in order to have a fake 2nd Trump impeachment that was based on lies.

Government and media have been lying about the Covid scamdemic for over a year now. It’s been lie after lie after lie, and it continues. The CDC openly told us they were going to count non-Covid deaths as “Covid deaths,” which they have been doing since March of last year. They have been lying about the Covid testing, reporting the mostly false positives via high cycle threshold numbers as not just “positive test results” but as “cases” whether or not people have symptoms.

And most recently they have been lying about the “Delta” variant. They have been lying about these vaccines that are not vaccines but drug treatments, whose purpose is not to prevent infections or transmission of virus but to reduce symptoms.

The most recent lie has been that “most of the Covid deaths now are of the unvaccinated,” despite the fact that plenty of people have nevertheless gotten “Covid” and died after being fully “vaccinated.”

So the lies will continue about an “insurrection” that wasn’t and while the DC gestapo holds innocent people in indefinite detention. The DC gestapo are holding people who may have been within a few thousand miles of Washington, D.C. at the time of the Capitol trespass, but only if they are Republicans, conservatives, and Trump supporters. And now we are hearing about public defenders attempting to “deprogram” some of those January 6th Trump-supporting detainees.

Meanwhile, leftist rioters, looters and arsonists get charges dropped for their rioting, looting and arson.

And that is what our third-world Amerika has become now in the Banana Republic of USSA. The inmates are running the asylum. Sad.

My 2012 Article on Obama Drones and “Kill List”

We are now seeing the Obiden administration and its corrupt FBI issuing proclamations labeling conservatives, libertarians, people who claim the election was stolen, and non-leftists as “domestic terrorists” and the gubmint threatening people with arrest and indefinite detention, i.e. unconstitutionally and criminally. Amerikan gestapo goons are already arresting and detaining innocent citizens who may or may not have even been at the January 6th Trump rally and/or Capitol trespass and riot. Fascist bureaucrats and activists are also calling for people to snitch on their family members, friends, coworkers, and neighbors for saying something that might be considered “racist” or un-PC and turn them in to the government.

Well, in January I had already reprinted my 2010 article Tea Partiers May Need the ACLU Soon, but now I will reprint here my 2012 LewRockwell.com article Americans Proudly Voting for Evil regarding then-President Obama’s drone strikes killing mainly innocent civilians overseas and “Kill List” that Americans either didn’t know about or they did know but approve of these policies. In other words, what I’ve been saying is that especially conservatives and “national security” supporters are coming to regret such support.

So, here is my 2012 article Americans Proudly Voting for Evil. (Note: a couple of links might no longer work, but most do. Links open on the same tab.)

November 1, 2012

As our society continues to rapidly decay, we have a presidential election in which the zombies will be out there in droves voting for the two statists, Obama and Romney.

The conservatives continue to support an aggressive and belligerent foreign policy – despite all its blowback – that includes indiscriminate drone bombings and murders of innocent foreigners. So much for being “pro-life.”

These days, warmongers who claim to be Christian have lost touch with their Christianity, so it seems. The arrogant and narcissistic attitude of “American Exceptionalism” far supersedes traditional Judeo-Christian moral values with todays conservatives. So despite Romney’s many left-leaning problems, he will probably get the conservatives and the Exceptionalists’ vote.

And the progressives – many of them will vote for Obama, knowing full well about the Obama Administration’s drone-murders of innocents, and other anti-human rights, anti-civil liberties acts of immorality and criminality.

In a recent article on identifying and rejecting evil, Arthur Silber uses two articles, one from the New York Times and another from the Washington Post, to show how the Obama Administration not only wants its murder program known to the American people, but is doing so proudly.

The program in question is the U.S. President’s assassinations of “terrorists,” or “terrorist supporters,” without due process, and without the President being required to present evidence against the accused.

So really we are talking about suspected terrorists. And worse, most of those who have been murdered overseas by Obama’s drone bombings have been innocent civilians and not actual terrorists [.pdf].

To cover themselves, as noted in the earlier NYT article, the Obama Administration has defined as “militants” (and thus worthy of a U.S. Presidential execution by drone) “all military-age males” who were unfortunate enough to find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Silber notes how, while the Obama Administration (through its propaganda organs the Times and the Post) wants the American people to know about its murder program and that these officials are proud of it, most Americans nevertheless remain unaware of the implications of such a program. Silber writes:

Americans cannot legitimately claim ignorance of the immense evil being perpetrated by their government. They will not be able to claim, as others have tried to do in the past: “We never knew about the horrors that were being committed. How can you believe that we knew about that?”

Americans know all about it, in horrifying, endless detail. The State wants them to know. But the State knows that almost all Americans will refuse to admit what it means. Americans have chosen to sleepwalk blindly into the mouth of Hell.

However, while the Times, the Post and many amongst the MSM act as spokesmen for the Obama Administration’s drone-murder program, there are nevertheless many people who still don’t know about them, about Obama’s “kill list” and Obama’s NDAA provision of indefinite detention of Americans, and so forth. In this video, an interviewer talks to Obama supporters who can’t believe that those policies are Obama’s. And in this video, the same ignorance is shown by a sitting U.S. Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

And in this video, former Homeland Security Sec. Tom Ridge exemplifies many Americans’ cluelessness about the Obama “kill list,” and their lack of understanding of the meaning of a government program that administers death arbitrarily without any legality or due process.

But in his aforementioned article, Silber continues with a reference to German political theorist Hannah Arendt, the author of The Origins of Totalitarianism, and how the Post article is describing what could be referred to as the bureaucratization of terror. Silber writes:

Always remember that what these “U.S. officials” and “senior Obama administration officials” are discussing is the murder of human beings, including the murder of entirely innocent human beings. But they speak of a “disposition matrix,” and the “accounting of the resources being marshaled,” in the manner that might be used to discuss office supplies. “Oh, dear, we need more paperclips. Staplers, too.” “Hmm. This group of men — there seem to be about ten or twelve of them — seems to be engaged in a ‘suspicious pattern of activity.’ We’d better dispose of them.”

In his previous essay, Accomplice to Murder, Silber presents a scenario regarding a possible future for the very Americans who currently are knowingly supporting their government’s use of drones and indiscriminate murders of totally innocent human beings overseas. The rationalization by the government, of course, is the accusation of being “material supporters” to terrorism, with the government’s hired guns acting on behalf of the President as judge, jury and executioners. To the bureaucrats, even someone’s leaving comments on a blog that are critical of the government’s foreign policy could be considered “providing material support” to terrorism.

In a more high-profile example, American Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was killed after having been targeted by Obama, without any due process, without Obama presenting any evidence against the accused.

Al-Awlaki had been a harsh critic of U.S. government foreign policy, and had used his religious sermons as a means to express his criticisms, expressions entirely protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In Accomplice to Murder, Silber points out the similarities between Romney and Obama in their support of the indiscriminate drone murders of entirely innocent human beings. Silber notes that, while a vote for Romney or Obama amounts to support for the government’s drone-murder program and the killing of innocent human beings, he describes the people who nevertheless refuse to understand this, citing people such as Daniel Ellsberg and Noam Chomsky. Silber takes great pains to explain how voting for the lesser of two evils (in the case of his examples, progressives nevertheless voting for Obama), is still a show of support for evil, but states succinctly (his bold):

As I have written before: “the claim of a ‘right’ to dispense death arbitrarily — the claim that the State may murder anyone it chooses, whenever it desires — constitutes a separate category altogether, a category of which this particular claim is the sole unit. When death is unleashed, all possibility of action is ended forever.” For this reason — and it is the only reason required — it is not “perfectly rational and reasonable” to decide that “the evils of their candidate are outweighed by the evils of the GOP candidate.”

There is no evil beyond the claimed “right” to murder by arbitrary edict, to murder anyone, anywhere, anytime. If you support this particular evil — and if you vote for Obama, you support it — then you will support anything.

I very much recommend those two articles by Arthur Silber, The Refusal to Identify and Reject Evil, and Accomplice to Murder (the latter which may be quite lengthy but well worth your time). And in an even more recent article (NB: some profanity), Silber makes very clear just how deranged and psychopathic our rulers really are.

But regarding the increasingly transparent status of mainstream news media as government spokespeople, such as the New York Times and the Washington Post have shown, as I pointed out here and here, these outlets now are not particularly biased to the left or to the right, or liberal or conservative, but mainly are biased toward the State. This authoritarian deference to the State by the news media has grown especially since 9/11. Civil liberties expert Glenn Greenwald expressed just recently,

That is what explains why the US media has been so obsequious first with George Bush and now with his Democratic successor (for those who doubt that “the liberal media” venerated Bush as much as [Michael Lewis and Douglas Brinkley] do Obama, I’ll remind you of this still-remarkable, borderline pornographic display of giddy fawning on Mission Accomplished Day, or the fact that Bush’s own Press Secretary wrote a book mocking the US media for how “deferential” it was to the Bush White House). It’s why journalists joyously dance with top officials, swing on their tires, are creepily grateful when they’re sprayed in the face by their squirt guns, and play fun beach games with the very campaign officials they’re ostensibly covering.

Just this week, with one nauseating item of misinformation and pro-State propaganda after another in each editorial: The New York Times: “we enthusiastically endorse President Barack Obama for a second term…” The Washington Post: “Four more years for President Obama…”

Hooray! Four more years of drone bombings of innocents that provokes foreigners and makes us less safe, four more years of the drug war, ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, stimulus, illegal warrantless wiretapping, and the TSA and DHS violating the American people!

With a Fourth Estate like this, who needs Goebbels?

But the mainstream news media’s growing subservience to the State merely reflects that of the masochistic American people in general, in my view.

So at the same time that the Times and the Post proudly advertise Obama’s “kill list” and drone-murder policies (as mentioned at the beginning of this article), the American people’s ignorance and infantilism nevertheless grow and grow, particularly their ignorance of the meaning of these policies and of the increasing probability of such policies’ subsequent domestic usage.

Silber points out how during Nazi Germany the Germans actually did know about their government’s policies of murdering innocents. Silber cites the book, Backing Hitler: Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany by Robert Gellately.

As with the rise in authoritarianism and submissiveness toward the State here in the U.S., Gellately discovered how the news media played an active role in promoting the State, and how, like the American DHS program of “If You See Something, Say Something,” it was really the German people who willingly and enthusiastically turned in their neighbors (but the Gestapo not as much).

Now, I have described in various articles how totalitarian a police state America has become, with its bureaucratic Berlin Wall, and its being like the Iranian SAVAK, like North Korea, and like Nazi Germany.

I know, a lot of people feel uncomfortable with these assertions. But when things really are happening, and our own government really is doing all these things – and it is getting worse by the day – then it takes some courage to face these realities. Being in denial will not protect you from the State’s evil crimes.

And now, in addition to the many other articles to which I have linked detailing what a police state America has become, there has been yet another article, this one describing how the government intends to treat “doomsday preppers” as terrorists. And this despite the government’s own preparations for various disastrous events, as noted in that article.

Meanwhile, the real terrorists are those who fire drones and indiscriminately bomb and murder totally innocent human beings, targeting rescuers and funerals, and who engage in counter-productive security theater for no good reason, molesting and groping little children and yelling “freeze” to intentionally frighten the public for no damn good reason!

Americans have been letting their government bureaucrats get away with murder, while at the same time the government with all its unjust, intrusive and immoral laws and procedures has been criminally persecuting totally innocent Americans!

Well, I agree with Jacob Hornberger, President of the Future of Freedom Foundation, who believes that we need an “American Spring.”

Americans had better wake up and realize that the idea of “limited government” is impossible. They need to recognize the true evils of centralization and central planning, and maybe then will they understand that the way to reverse the evil is to totally decentralize and desocialize America.

But sadly, many Americans are zombies these days, addicted to TV and obsessed with their cell phones and their texting nonsense while compulsively checking emails from nobody. The zombies who vote will proudly vote for The Obomber or his pal Rombo, knowing what their policies are, but not really understanding the real implications of those policies, to our detriment.

Anniversary of Assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is the 53rd year of the assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. His activism and persistence led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act and desegregation efforts.

One of King’s important quotes: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Yep.

Back then, most people agreed with that, and I believe that most black and other minorities agreed with that enthusiastically.

But today? Hardly. Today many people in academia, media and Hollywood are brainwashed with identity politics. Race and gender especially. They now believe that it matters what your skin color or race is, and you must act accordingly. They are mainly anti-individualists and identitarians. They don’t care about the content of one’s character. Sad.

Another issue with “liberals” is that, while during the 1960s and ’70s they were mainly anti-war, especially in their protests of the American involvement in the Vietnam War, now they are the warmongers of today.

The Clintons during the 1990s with their continuation of bombing and sanctions on Iraq, and bombing Serbia, Obama with his escalation of George W. Bush’s drone strikes over the Middle East and other bombing and war crimes and murders of innocent civilians, and now Harris-Biden the same. “Liberals” support them.

During the 2000s the people on the left protested Bush for his wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq, they called him “Bushitler” and so on. But as soon as Obama became President and continued and escalated the bombing, drone strikes, warmongering and murderous rampages across the Middle East, it was crickets from the “liberals” of Hollywood, academia and media.

And now besides the Harris-Biden bombing such as in Syria, another abandonment of actual defense by the U.S. military is its new obsession with the LGBT agenda. The “defense” secretary Lloyd Austin endorses their priorities of transgender surgeries rather than concentrating on defending America. And further, they are cracking down on “domestic terrorism,” i.e. conservatives or “MAGA” advocates or those who want to “drain the swamp.” (Perhaps Steve Austin would be a better defense secretary than Lloyd Austin, although given current budgets it would probably cost $6 billion rather than $6 million. But I digress.)

Back to Martin Luther King, Jr. He was an outspoken anti-war activist, and he gave a passionate speech against the Vietnam War on April 4th, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York, Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence. (Video)

As Norman Solomon and Jeff Cohen write in this column, King was condemned by the “liberal” Establishment and media for such a “demagogic slander” and treasonous speech against what were really illegitimate and criminal actions by the U.S. military in Vietnam.

King also gave a different version of that speech later that month, at Ebenezer Baptist Church (video here and here).

Like the current U.S. government’s war on freedom of speech and diversity in thought and opinion that current apparatchiks falsely label as a “war on domestic terrorism,” even in the 1960s they didn’t like criticism of their policies and they cracked down. The FBI and NSA spied on Martin Luther King, Jr. and the FBI kept a dossier on him and harassed him.

King was assassinated exactly one year after his anti-Vietnam War speech on April 4th, 1968, and probably with FBI involvement. As with the JFK assassination, the national security state didn’t like King’s message of peace and non-violence and his outspoken opposition to their war crimes and murders of hundreds of thousands in Vietnam and unnecessary sacrifice of tens of thousands of Americans there as well. And all for nothing.
