What we’re currently witnessing in the media is the raw stuff of dystopian nightmares – only, it’s real.

In the last two weeks alone we’ve seen a tsunami of social media censorship. Any story about allegations of voter fraud in the recent U.S election are automatically flagged with a warning label and a clickable link diverting viewers through to an “official” explanation of the topic. Hence Twitter’s flag reads:

“This claim about election fraud is disputed.”

The link then lands you on a headline reading:

“Voter fraud of any kind is exceedingly rare in the US, election experts confirm.”

This biased and coordinated assault against one side of an important narrative is ubiquitous on Twitter – and Facebook. 340 million people use Twitter; 2.60 billion people use Facebook. That’s quite some worldwide reach.

The "Free fall" of the Rule of Law: The American Declension to Fascism

The late literary critic Harold Bloom in an interview said that US Democracy was dying and that the US was falling to being ruled by Plutocrats [big tech and big corporations]; Oligarchs and Theocrats. As friends of democracy and liberty, these three are not. The present election t sees all three at play. MSM in the USA seems to think it is an activist part of the state's functioning apparatus.

'1984' Revisited—Reprised for Obvious Reasons

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2018-07-01 05:54

I've added 1984 to the books I'm currently reading or, as in this case, re-reading. I'm astonished anew at how prescient it was. (Also refreshing, after Dostoevsky and Hugo, to encounter a writer who just gets on with it.) I assume everyone here is acquainted with it, so every day will just add a direct quote without commentary. This one is apposite in light of today's demonstrations by mindless leftist thugs:

And Right on Cue, the Democrats Have Cheated

Back in July, I wrote a piece titled “As Surely as Night Follows Day, the Democrats Will Try to Cheat” Donald Trump out of the 2020 election. We are now watching this unfold – but even I could not have guessed how open and brazen that cheating would be.

I wrote:

On top of this chicanery, while milking that almighty catch-all excuse of the current COVID pandemic, Democrats are trying to force all 50 states to swiftly legislate for en-masse mail-in ballots instead of the usual face-to-face voting at a booth.

Mail-ins are notoriously prone to error in the form of voter pressure from friends and family members, unverifiable identities and time delays in the postal system. Then there’s the practice of ballot harvesting, where one person drops off hundreds of collected ballots at a time for the count, rather than only an officially designated person acting for the voter. In many states this practice is illegal, since it opens the door to fraud and coercion, as well as delaying accurate election results on the night.

Democrats have proved themselves to be so deranged about all things Trump – and so desperate in their dirty tactics to win at any cost, as surely as night follows day, they will cheat.

The Inalienable Right to Blaspheme

Charlie Hebdo has courageously published those cartoons again, to mark the beginning of the trial in Paris this week of suspected accomplices and enablers of the main perpetrators of the atrocities who, mercifully, no longer pollute the planet. Astonishingly, the normally Wet Woke Macron has defended Charlie's right to do so. Would that New Zealand Woke-Fascists, hell-bent on criminalising criticism of Islam, emulated Macron instead:

"It's never the place of a president of the Republic to pass judgment on the editorial choice of a journalist or newsroom, never. Because we have freedom of the press. There is in France a freedom to blaspheme which is attached to the freedom of conscience. I am here to protect all these freedoms. In France, one can criticize a president, governors, blaspheme. We will all have a thought for the women and men who were cowardly shot because they drew, wrote, corrected, were there to help, to deliver."

The International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS) has called on non-Muslim countries to ban Islamophobia, following the killing of dozens of people on a deadly attack on two mosques in New Zealand.

“IUMS calls on non-Muslim countries to ban the spread of hatred against Islam and Muslims,” IUMS President Ahmed al-Raisouni said in a statement at the conclusion of a 2-day session held in Istanbul on Friday.

I have a better idea. Why don't all countries require all people—citizens, non-citizen residents or visitors—within their jurisdiction, as a prerequisite for being within their jurisdiction, to sign the following pledge:

"Just as I reserve the right to hold and express my opinions on any matter whatsoever, I promise to respect the right of all others to do the same. I renounce unreservedly the use of coercion and violence in the promotion of my opinions."

It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.

There's not much of New Zealand in NZ Initiative. Its staff are mostly imported, and its Executive Director, Oliver Hartwich, is German; his English remains, in spite of my best efforts, unintelligibly, robotically Germanic in the manner of a John Cleese spoof. Ordinarily, as a libertarian, I wouldn't be bothered by any of this, and would regard it as part of life's rich tapestry; in this instance, however, I am more than bothered: Herr Hartwich and NZ Initiative are pursuing a Sorosian globalist agenda that couldn't be more anti-liberty if it tried to be.

Orange the Magnificent Does What He Always Does!

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2020-11-10 08:26

It's reassuring to see Orange the Magnificent, aka Orange Man Bad, fighting back. For a brief period it seemed as though he'd been cowed. Possibly he'd been gob-smacked by Fox's betrayal as much as the rest of us had been. Fox took its lead from the weasel Wallace, who took the lead in declaring Arizona for Joe China.

It's also reassuring, and unsurprising, to see Orange's 72 million voters not doing what Woke-Fascist Biden-voting Dem-Scum do: riot, loot, burn and kill. Orange-men and -women do not do those things. Woke-Fascists do.

Let's just remind ourselves: this latest coup, via hundreds of thousands of ballots for Biden only—not possible!—dropped off at 4 am in swing states, with supervision disallowed, is just that: a coup. It is treason. Occasional Cortex and Evil Edgy-Butt want retribution against those who draw attention to it, and against those who have supported Orange in the past! Edge and Occasional, and the Woke-Fascist sub-humans from The Swamp who support them, are the real fascists here.

With less than one week to go before election night in the U.S.A, it has become abundantly clear that this election is a titanic battle between communism and capitalism. And here were folks thinking that communism was consigned to the scrapheap of history after the Cold War ended.

If people don’t get this, or doubt it, thinking that statement of mine oversimplifies the struggle taking place, then they are just not paying attention to the details of what is actually occurring in the times they live in, or they simply do not comprehend either of these two economic systems well enough to see how the winner of this election will impact the American way of life.
