Totalitarianism in America…, today!

Are you totally sure?

Totally.

It could be characterized as a form of neo-leftist fascism, as well.

According to dictionary.com, totalitarianism means, “A system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state.”

Starting to sound familiar?

Yael Halon of Fox News reports that, “Ex-Clinton adviser [and ex-Al Gore advisor] [and renowned liberal author], Naomi Wolf, warns US becoming ‘totalitarian state before our eyes under Biden.’”

We really have to give Dr. Naomi Wolf some credit here.

Her books and her concerns about this issue were really born at the end of the George W. Bush’s second term in office, back in 2006. Her warnings and concerns then intensified during the Trump years, as she loyally parroted the false, democrat, anti-conservative, and anti-Trump propaganda.

Again, to her credit, she could not intellectually accept the democrat narrative any longer as she witnessed what was occurring, leading up to the 2020 election, and what has taken place since.

Dr. Wolf has now correctly come to realize IT IS THE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE ATTEMPTING TO ESTABLISH A TOTALITARIAN STATE…, not President Trump, and not the conservatives.

“The author tells ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ that Americans must wake up before it is ‘too dangerous to fight back.’”

“Naomi Wolf sounds alarm at the growing power of ‘autocratic tyrants.’ America is becoming a ‘totalitarian state before our eyes’ under President Biden’s leadership, feminist author and former Democratic adviser Naomi Wolf told ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’”

“Wolf, who served as an adviser on Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign in 1996, told host Tucker Carlson that in her view, the United States is swiftly ‘moving into a coup situation, a police state’ as a result of Biden’s ongoing coronavirus-related economic shutdowns. Wolf added that she believes the orders are being improperly extended under the ‘guise of a real medical pandemic.’”

‘“That is not a partisan thing,’ Wolf told Carlson. ‘That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.’”

“Wolf has ramped up her warnings against extended lockdowns on Twitter in recent months. In November, the author wrote on Twitter that Biden’s openness to reinstating additional shutdowns made her question her decision to vote for him.”

I’m sure we’ll be hearing shortly that her Twitter account has been suspended, or cancelled altogether. 

‘“The state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies … which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement, fining us in New York state … the violations go on and on,’ she said.”

“The outspoken liberal, who previously authored a book outlining the ten steps that ‘would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy,’ believes the United States is heading toward what she refers to as ‘step 10.’”

‘“Whether they are on the left or the right, they [totalitarians] do these same ten things,’ Wolf explained, ‘and now we’re at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime … it is step 10 and that is the suspension of the rule of law and that is when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There is no way around it.’”

“Wolf said she has interviewed U.S. citizens of various backgrounds and political affiliations who are in a state of ‘shock and horror’ as ‘autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level are creating this kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of the totalitarian fascism in the ‘20’s,’ she told Carlson.”

‘“They are using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights; rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, all the rights the Constitution guarantees.’”

Dr. wolf also noted during the interview, that nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the rights provided there could be suspended for any reason. 

“Wolf called the United States’ overall response to the coronavirus pandemic ‘completely unprecedented,’ arguing that ‘lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a of totalitarian state right before everyone’s eyes.’”

‘“I really hope we wake up quickly,’ she said, ‘because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.’”

Wow…, those are strong words, coming from someone who has been a self-proclaimed liberal for the majority of her life.

And I’m sure she still thinks of herself as a liberal, although not a “liberal” with totalitarian ambitions.   

In her book “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot,” published in 2007, Wolf takes a historical look at the rise of fascism, outlining 10 steps necessary for a fascist group (or government) to destroy the democratic character of a nation-state. The book details how this pattern was implemented in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and elsewhere, and analyzes its emergence and application of all the 10 steps in American political affairs since the September 11 attacks. Alex Beam wrote in The New York Times: “In the book, Wolf insists that she is not equating [George W.] Bush with Hitler, nor the United States with Nazi Germany, then proceeds to do just that.”

Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries,” published in 2008, was written as a sequel to “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot.” In the book, Wolf looks at times and places in history where citizens were faced with the closing of an open society and successfully fought back.

Leaders frequently attributed to ruling totalitarian regimes, from left to right and top to bottom in picture, include Joseph Stalin, former General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union; Adolf Hitler, former Führer of Germany; Mao Zedong, former Chairman of the Communist Party of China; Benito Mussolini, former Duce of Italy; and Kim Il-sung, the Eternal President of North Korea.

The NEW totalitarians:

It is my opinion that Joe Biden is just a puppet in this whole grand scheme, and that he is just happy to be in the White House, to read what they put on the teleprompter for him, and to sign what they tell him to.

Kamala Harris, also, really doesn’t factor into much of this either.  She was a human prop who was used to garner minority and female votes, and that’s about it.

The real “New totalitarians” are those shown after those two.

I have heard it said that George Soros could be one of the people who really dictates what they want done. This is the real difference betwen this “new totalitarianism” and totalitarian regimes of the past. In the past, these regimes were all led by tyranical “front men.” Now, the people calling the shots are ghosts behind the scenes, but just as dangerous.

The other cast of characters: AOC, “the squad,” Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, et al, along with mainstream media, and the “useful idiots” of the “deep state,” are really into socialism and not so much the totalitarian aspect of what is happening around them, although they all seem to be willing, if not unknowing, participants at this point.  

Again, like the good doctor said, “I really hope we wake up quickly, because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”

President Trump is toooo funny, and right on point…, again!

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reported that, “President Trump retweeted a ‘photo-shopped’ image depicting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in Muslim headwear with a backdrop of the Iranian flag, in the midst of a Monday morning Twitter spree where he shared a number of posts accusing Democratic leadership of supporting the Iranian government.”

ademsiran 2

I don’t really think President Trump’s tweets should be characterized as “accusations,” but rather as restatements of actual events.

“The president’s political opponents have blasted him for ordering the drone strike against Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who has been linked to numerous attacks on American forces and more. Meanwhile, they largely have remained silent as the Iranian people have staged massive protests against their leaders, in the wake of the government shooting down a passenger plane and initially denying it.”

‘“The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue,’ said the original tweet from user @D0wn_Under.”

ademsiran 1

“Trump later summed up his views on the matter, stating, ‘The Democrats and the Fake News are trying to make terrorist Soleimani into a wonderful guy, only because I did what should have been done for 20 years.’”

“You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members. You’re not hearing China. You’re not hearing Russia,” Former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley said.

“The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates.”

EXACTLY!

How true and how pathetic.

Well…, you could add the fake news media and your usual collection of Hollywood elites to the mourning mix as well.

But, we, of course, are forced to endure our dose of propagandistic mis-information administered to counter the truth.  “This kind of statement is ridiculous, inflammatory and dangerous. Rather than inform viewers, Ambassador Haley wants to divide Americans,’ said former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile.

On the contrary, Ms. Brazile…, it is your statement which is “ridiculous” and divisive…, not ambassador Haley’s.

Tony Shaffer for the RealClear Politics website added, “As someone who went toe-to-toe with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in Afghanistan, I can assure you that Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani got exactly what he deserved when he perished in a U.S. drone strike. What he certainly doesn’t deserve is praise from Democrat lawmakers who would rather mourn a war criminal than credit President Trump for making the world safer.”

“As the leader of the IRGC’s Quds Force, [“Quds Force” is Iran’s unconventional arm that operates outside of the Iran’s borders] which has been designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. government, Soleimani was among America’s most vociferous and aggressive foes. He was personally responsible for the deaths of thousands, including the killing and maiming of hundreds of American soldiers. He was an evil, remorseless man, and his death is a positive development for the entire world — including his own country.”

“Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, however, is currently considering a resolution that labels the strike that killed Soleimani ‘provocative and disproportionate.’”

ademsiran 12

ademsiran 8

“Disproportionate?”

How many more American soldiers would have to die to make this a proportionate action in your eyes, Nancy?

Another fifty?

Another hundred?

“Predictably, the Democrats have been stoking fears about Iran’s potential response ever since they’ve learned about Soleimani’s death, pretending that the strike jeopardized U.S. security rather than enhanced it. It seems no liberal lawmaker is immune to the lure of political opportunism in the midst of a presidential election campaign.”

ademsiran 6

We’re not supposed to send a drone strike…, we’re supposed to send pallets of cash to those that regularly chant “death to America,” ala Obama and Biden, and hope for the best.  That’s the preferred democrat strategy for dealing with Iran.

ademsiran 10

“But while the Democrats join our enemies in mourning Soleimani’s demise, those with knowledge of Soleimani’s terror campaigns are celebrating the death of a genuine war criminal.”

“This man was a terrorist in charge of an IRGC element that had been declared a terrorist organization. He was traveling, in violation of U.N. sanctions, to Iraq, with the apparent intent of inflicting harm on U.S. service members in the region. He was in a combat zone as a combatant in uniform — the legal basis to target him could not have been clearer, and the same goes for the moral justification.”

“The Democrats are politicizing this issue the way they’ve politicized every other issue since President Trump took office. They don’t even seem to care that they have to take the side of America’s enemies in order to criticize Donald Trump.”

Well said…, but who is taking the side of whom exactly?

Hmmm?

President Trump is absolutely right…, AGAIN!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “[President] Trump says America would be better off without the ‘CNNs of the world’ after fiery news conference.”

“President Trump ended Wednesday’s White House joint press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö by taking a shot at CNN.”

‘“The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation,’ Trump said.”

Can anyone possibly argue the validity of that statement?

Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of that statement?

It is now commonly acknowledged that our “press” has a definite liberal bias.

It has also become apparent, particularly within the last five to ten years, that the “press” has gone beyond being bias to promoting the liberal narrative of the moment.

anocnn 2

anocnn 3

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press….”

The founders of our country saw “the press” as an important component towards a healthy government and a healthy democracy.

According to Eugene Volokh and Gary T. Schwartz, Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law, for the Heritage.org website, “

This writing by the First Continental Congress in 1774, says, “The last right we shall mention regards the freedom of the press. The importance of this consists, besides the advancement of truth, science, morality, and arts in general, in its diffusion of liberal sentiments on the administration of Government, its ready communication of thoughts between subjects, and its consequential promotion of union among them, whereby oppressive officers are shamed or intimidated into more honorable and just modes of conducting affairs.”

So what are reasonable or accepted journalistic standards?

While various codes may have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability, as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.

“…public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.”

It is not “the job” of “the press” to be oppositional or propositional.

So, again I ask, can anyone possibly argue the validity of President Trump’s statement?  Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of President Trump’s statement?

Apparently it is “the press” itself who is ready to argue The President’s point.

Again, President Trump commented “The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation.”

No sooner had the words left President Trump’s mouth, a male voice from somewhere in the room shouted, “We are, Mr. President!”

“A source inside the room told Fox News the person who shouted was CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.”

anocnn 1

“Trump’s retort? ‘We would be far greater when we don’t have the CNNs of the world, who are corrupt people.’”

“Trump then thanked the attendees and walked off.”

“CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

And don’t hold your breath waiting either.

anocnn 12

In this instance, it is safe to use Jim Acosta as an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

Instead of recording and reporting, we have Jim Acosta choosing to interject himself into the story.

Again…, Acosta is an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

It also seems that CNN played right along…, demonstrating exactly what The President was referring to…, and making his point for him.

WINNING!

Who or what is Howard Stern?

I listened to Howard Stern’s comments to George Stephanopoulos recently, regarding the presidential election of 2016, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton, and I wonder who or what Howard Stern actually is.

stern 6

He is undoubtedly the “king of all media,” with an estimated daily audience of over 60 million people.

That figure by far, and I mean BY FAR, eclipses anyone else on radio or TV.

So, Howard is obviously an intelligent person.

I’m assuming you need some level of intelligence to be the “king of all media.”

stern 5

That is why some of his views, as far as politics, moral issues, and other things in general, cause me to question him.

Either Howard Stern is really just an idiot in disguise, just another liberal brownnoser in disguise, someone who is just generally very confused, or an intentional fraud.

As you can see…, none of the options are very good.

Sorry, Howard.

stern 2

stern 1

I have heard Howard say that he “really wanted Hillary to become president,” and that he voted for her.

He also has said that he feels if Hillary had come on his show she may have had a better chance at winning the election, “because people might have gotten to know the real Hillary.”

Here’s a news flash for you Howard; the LAST thing Hillary wants is for anyone to see the REAL Hillary!

The LAST thing.

Her goal…, 365, 24/7, is to NOT let you see the real Hillary.

The Real Hillary is scary.

The real Hillary is Satan’s grandmother!!!

The real Hillary has long forgotten what “the truth” really is.  In her world, “the truth” is whatever is the most advantageous for her, regardless of where it ranks on the truth meter.

stern 7

Someone with Howard’s supposed knowledge and background should be aware of this…, so either he is ignorant to the truth, or he chooses to side with her for some other ungodly reason.

His stance on abortion is also a strange one.

He comes up with all of these reasons for people to support the concept of women being able to have an abortion, but fails to recognize that no matter how many reasons you come up with that are pro-abortion, they can never outweigh the fact that a child’s life is being terminated here…, and he must realize that.  Especially regarding his own state of New York’s love of late-term and even post birth “abortions.”

He has to be smarter than that, doesn’t he?

Howard has also adopted an anti-Trump stance as well, which like most famous liberals, was a “180” from where they stood on him prior to him winning the election.

stern 8

It was no longer acceptable to be associated with Donald Trump in any way, shape or form now that he threatened “the swamp,” and was in opposition of most liberal ideas and agendas in general.

In conclusion…, Howard would like you to view him as a successful maverick…, as an independent voice, and as a voice of reason…, when in fact Howard Stern is just another especially obnoxious, well-conceived, well-marketed phony.

stern 4

I do.
