I was floored the other day. The federal government isn't even trying to hide their overreach anymore. The following quotes from top Biden administration officials are really quite shocking:
“The problem right now is that the voices of these credible health professionals are getting drowned out, and that’s one of the reasons we are asking technology companies to help lift up the voices of credible health authorities. It’s also why they have to do more to reduce the misinformation that’s out there so that the true voices of experts can shine through.” - Surgeon General Dr. Vivek H. Murthy
“In terms of actions, Alex, that we have taken — or we’re working to take, I should say — from the federal government: We’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the Surgeon General’s office. We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation. We’re working with doctors and medical professionals to connect — to connect medical experts with popular — with popular — who are popular with their audiences with — with accurate information and boost trusted content. So, we’re helping get trusted content out there.” – White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki
“I think this was a question asked before — there’s about 12 people who are producing 65 percent of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms.” – White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki
The Biden Administration is openly violating our 1st Amendment right to free speech. It’s instructing the media on content to publish and violating the freedom of the press. It has openly admitted to monitoring the posts of private citizens, thereby violating the 4th Amendment prohibition of unreasonable searches and seizures. These are the actions of totalitarian regimes and well, here we are.
The Biden Administration began by issuing Executive Orders to stop enforcing our immigration laws, cancelling independent pipelines, and promoting an anti-American agenda.
I almost forgot to mention the announcement that the Biden Administration has invited the United Nations (one of the most corrupt, anti-Semitic, anti-American organizations in the world today) to investigate systemic racism in America.
Add all this to the endorsement of Critical Race Theory to indoctrinate our children to hate themselves, hate each other, and hate our country. We are in a pickle.
We are no longer in an environment where we have disagreements of policy. Big-government advocates and the political "elite" do not want discussion. They are focused on shutting down debate, vilifying their opponents, and destroying the voices of opposition. Make no mistake: We are embroiled in a battle between good and evil.
So, what is the antidote for all this craziness? Self-governing, liberty-loving citizens must get involved. It is the only way to preserve our republic. This is a time for choosing. You are either going to stand up and act or stand down and watch our republic implode. I am an optimistic person and do not like to be so dire, but this is the reality we currently face.
