You can see it coalescing. democrats know they are going to be slaughtered in the 2022 midterm elections, and they need to do something to stop the hemorrhage. One by one the stones fall into place as to how they plan on retaining control. It will take four steps.
- They need the pandemic. They need a crisis not to waste.
Fauci wants the CDC to have the power to unilaterally control the country– above Congress, the President and the Supreme Court.
Dr. Anthony Fauci took major heat after lamenting on Thursday that it was “disturbing” that a federal court would rule against the CDC’s COVID-19 travel mask mandate, adding his opinion that “This is not a judicial matter.”
Prominent conservative Twitter users crushed Fauci for his “stupidity”, with many accusing the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director of thinking he and the CDC “are above the law,” and of being “hell bent on using Covid to control people.”
When Biden as asked about Title 42, he floundered into his rationale for retaining the mask mandate. It’s not sure he even knew what he was talking about, but it was clear he wants the CDC to be in complete control of the country.
“Because as a matter of principle, we want to be able to be in a position where if, in fact, it is strongly concluded by the scientists that we need Title 42 that we be able to do that. But there has been no decision on extending Title 42.”
democrats need to retain the mask mandate because
2. They need fear
James Carville says no one fears the democrat party and says “you can’t govern without fear.” democrats need to be the party of fear. That ought to scare you right there.
3. Rewrite history
In trots Barack Obama:
Former President Barack Obama on Thursday said he still holds regrets for failing to see the rampant spread of disinformation within the U.S. while he was president, particularly around the 2016 election.
In a speech at Stanford University on the dangers of disinformation, Obama touched on the 2016 election, which U.S. intelligence has long confirmed Russia meddled in.
The former president said no one in his administration was surprised Russia had spread disinformation across social media platforms in an effort to sway the U.S. election, but he regretted not fully understanding how vulnerable America had become to such content.
“What does still nag at me though was my failure to fully appreciate at the time just how susceptible we had become to lies and conspiracy theories, despite having spent years being a target of disinformation myself,” Obama said, seeming to reference the racist and unfounded conspiracy theory that he was not born in the United States.
And, of course, this is a threat to democracy.
In the speech, Obama expressed his fears about disinformation in the digital age and the new information ecosystem, warning it was imperiling democracy.
He got specific
He also slammed disinformation spread by former President Donald Trump even put Russian President Vladmir Putin and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon together as people trying to attack democracy.
“People like Putin and Steve Bannon, for that matter, understand it’s not necessary for people to believe this information in order to weaken democratic institutions,” Obama said, adding, “You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theorizing that citizens no longer know what to believe.”
What he obviously meant was that the threats come only from conservatives. Left wing disinformation, such as his 2013 “Lie of the Year” and his promoting of the fake Russia-Trump collusion and framing Donald Trump, well, never you mind all that. What’s important is that conservatives be shut down.
We did learn one thing for sure- Barack Obama is as full of sh*t as he ever was.
Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra torched Obama’s speech, tweeting out a screenshot of the Politifact article that awarded the former president with the “Lie of The Year” and noting, “Obama is quite the expert in ‘disinformation.’”
Conservative author Max Abrahms responded to the news about Obama’s Stanford speech, tweeting, “Someone should tell Obama that if you promoted the Russia-Trump collusion hoax and all the component parts that have been revealed as empirically baseless then you’re not actually opposed to disinformation.”
The Federalist editor-in-chief Mollie Hemingway replied to Obama announcing the speech by asking, “Would you be apologizing for your role in the biggest disinformation campaign the country has ever seen? The Russia collusion hoax that you helped perpetrate?”
4. Change the internet. Smother dissenting voices. Kill them.
To this end, let us employ the culprit of the greatest political crime in American history- by the biggest liar of all, Hillary Clinton. She envisages censorship on a grand scale- a Ministry of Truth for the entire internet.
For too long, tech platforms have amplified disinformation and extremism with no accountability. The EU is poised to do something about it.
I urge our transatlantic allies to push the Digital Services Act across the finish line and bolster global democracy before it’s too late.
— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) April 21, 2022
Before it’s too late. Before the Clinton’s are held accountable for their devious actions. The Clinton’s have forever employed a loathsome tactic- blame others for your crimes. This is the perfect example of it.
Generate fear, seize control, rewrite the narrative, smother opposition. They’re going to save democracy by crushing free speech. It’s how Hitler and Stalin got started.
Hitler,Stalin and Mao knew a lot about that of a Pathway to Democracy
“democrats: the pathway to democracy is the elimination of free speech” ~ Absolutely, couldn’t agree more. From this moment forward all Leftists are forbidden to speak.
If you consider something to be “disinformation,” here’s what you do: DESTROY IT WITH FACTS.
Remember the fake news story about George Bush’s Texas National Guard service?
It only took a few hours before someone had proven the story was fake.
The “records” of Bush’s service included a memo that could NOT have been produced on any typewriter of those days!
It was straight off Word Perfect!
The “throbbing memo” became famous as it showed this FACT.
The main problem of the Left is that they cannot debate, cannot produce proofs.
That’s why the Left keeps trying to morph language, shut off debate, control narratives.
I meant to add that it is fellow dems who are hurt the worst by this chilling of free speech.
Here’s what a black liberal said:
It is impossible as long as they are debating to support lies.
If you don’t like the message shoot the messenger.
When you can’t defend your own positions personal attacks are all you have left
Idiot Biden’s response there was probably the clearest presentation of the left’s agenda of suppression yet. Clearly, they have no idea of any actual necessity for their masks or vaccine mandates aside from just sheer autocratic mastery. They can barely muster a pretense to support it any more. Obey… just because.
Failed to SEE? Hell, he made it go viral!
What Democrats object to, what they regard as “disinformation” is information that DISputes Democrat political propaganda and lies. What is amazing is every example of “Russian disinformation” the left blames for costing Hillary her promised Presidency are nothing but FACTS about Hillary’s corruption. Odd how what those who pretend to protect “democracy” actually fight tooth and nail to preserve rule by an elitist minority.
Ever since the three major networks lost the ability to control the narrative, the left has been apoplectic about any speech that is counter to the established message. The left is unable to allow any counter opinion that exposes their lies.
If they thought they could get away with absolving the first amendment along with the second, they would not hesitate
Sad news Schwabb “won” the French election again.

Heres a bit of reference material
Like cockroaches they infest positions of importance.
Vote awake, watch those making appointments, know who is bought.
Do you mean letting the square get filled with raw sewage like you and your party have been doing for I don’t know three or four decades?
Who is “you and your party”, exactly?
Uh oh! That’s a question. If you’ll remember, you have contempt for questions asked as part of a discussion here. Scurry and get back with the rest of the herd, little dogie!
Suppressing a class of people because you don’t agree with them is a precusor to genocide.
Who are you mad at, son? It’s certainly isn’t us. Go get some therapy before you do something stupid and hurt innocent people.
All speech is free speech. The good, the bad, and the ugly. You can’t threaten or call for violence.
Twitter never had the legal right to ban who it did, so this is merely going to be a Constitutional reckoning. The only reason it could break the law with impunity was because of the fascistic union of social media, news outlets, corporations, and the politicians they install.
Has been true for at least 70 years!
65 years ago when I was in high school FritoLay was growing fast. Because of a very successful, popular commercial. “Frito Bandito
In 61 JFK told TV nets if they aired the “racist” add they may have their license pulled. the “Big 3″ immediately stopped the add. Did not air it agin til after Sirhan Sirhan.
!It no longer had the success. may said, ” why were you not ruing this in 1962, ’63, ’64,,,?!@#$!?n
That was 61 years ago!
From January, 2021 – Conservatives crying ‘Orwell’ are downright Orwellian
Just let it go, greg. You’re wrong. You and your Party are totalitarian, censoring Americans, and lying with doublespeak and cancel culture.
The inauguration crowd? That’s all you have?
04/25/2022 – Leftists’ Masks Drop as They Go Full Authoritarian Over Musk’s Purchase of Twitter and Restoration of Freespeech.
You morons are still focused on Trump. You just don’t get it. THERE ARE MILLIONS OF TRUMPS IN THE USA, AND THEY ARE PUTTING AND END TO YOUR ORWELLIAN BULLSHIT.
We’re not okay with men like you f*cking kids in the bathroom and then saying you were born like that.
You’re really pushing the envelop tonight, aren’t you? Maybe you should talk to a psychiatrist about your childhood experiences.
Due to Democrat polices, psychiatrists are going to be in large demand for decades to come.
Maybe you should lay off pushing “envelops” and just take a cold shower, perv.
With the Right, every accusation is a confession.
And with the Left, every utterance is a projection.
Stay away from kids, Michael.
I’ll admit that I don’t understand how you guys became so comfortable with accusing random strangers of pedophilia.
I’ll admit it baffles me as to how you don’t understand what’s going on….in the nation, with the political ideology you support, and everything that comes with it.
You’re now reduced to simply repeating what I type back at me, as if you’re six years old.
Anything you need to say instead of addressing the truth…
Nathan Blue’s comment:
The two comments are not the same. And you grade student’s papers? I pity the students.
How does that lead to you people accusing random strangers of pedophilia?
Back to the questions.
If you don’t get it by now, you never will. That’s okay.
Thanks, Deflecty Deflecterson!
You’ve said trans does not hurt kids. You were offered evidence to the contrary.
You never answered.
That must been when someone demanded, in bold-face all caps, that I answer them.
To hell with that shit.
You dont have to answer, we have seen the data, the vultures that swoop in and set these children on the trans railroad to commit suicide.
No matter this thread is about freedom of speech, the Democrats worst fear is lack of censorship. If that doesnt apply to you great. Greg thinks there is such a thing as wrong speak that discourse is bad. I find it entertaining.
It’s pretty simple. Do you support “teachers” grooming their captive audience in the ways of homosexuality, deviant sexual acts, gender confusion and encouraging mental illness or do you support DeSantis’ bill forbidding such activity?
This is how websites die.
You referring to CNN+? Guess your subscription money is gone for nothing.
Somebody’s off his meds, and it isn’t me.
Indeed. You save the meds for the so-called “trans” kids so they don’t try to commit suicide because the adults in their lives have failed them.
I kind of assumed greg and Michael were the same person.
No doubt now.
Saying hyperinflation is a good thing, like your hero, Poopy-pants Biden.
“The Untested Vaccine, that requires us to suppress demonstrated treatments.”
“Trump investigated his rival Biden (as if Biden was already slated to be installed, which he was)…Biden on camera prior admitting to withholding aid to fire a prosecutor for political favors.”
There’s the Right-wing political commentary we know and love!
And there’s the lack of point or intellectual rigor, mixed with outright bigotry induced by Leftist propaganda, we tolerate from our newest troll.
I wonder if Mikey would like his salary based on the testing scores of his school?
45% of his salary if that where the kids score.
How else do you phrase commentary about a faux “president” that shits his pants?
