People around the world are beginning to rise up against Coronavirus restrictions and vaccine mandates

For the past eighteen months I have been continuously amazed and sickened at how meekly people around the world have accepted the trampling of their most fundamental rights and freedoms, all in the name of fighting the Coronavirus  I have been especially disappointed and saddened at the unquestioning acceptance of outright tyranny here in the United States.  For the past year an a half I have been waiting in vain for people to rise up and say in a very loud voice enough is enough.  Until that happens I know that these restrictions and mandates will continue

Finally, just in the past week or two, people around the world are beginning to rise up and say enough.  Australia appears to be the epicenter of this world wide resistance. That does not surprise me because no nation has traveled further along the road to absolute tyranny than the land down under,  This article chronicles what is going on in the land of koala bears and kangaroos. 

An inflection point has been reached in Australia with the government COVID-19 lockdowns, forced vaccinations and now, vaccine passports. What is happening today in the state of Victoria, specifically the Melbourne metropolitan area, is an outcome of more than a year of heavy-handed government rules and regulations deaf to the voices of the average man, woman or family. There is a middle class & blue-collar backlash taking place, and Americans would be wise to pay attention.

Things recently came to a head when the Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, began outlining the rules and regulations for opening society back up after almost a year of total lockdown. The always futile attempt to block the COVID-19 virus through a policy known as “COVID-ZERO” was abandoned. The new approach is to open up society and the economy by forcing everyone to take the vaccine, and then allowing only the vaccinated to participate in the economy as varying percentages of the population are double-vaxxed, and admittedly, later, booster-vaxxed.

Over the course of two days protests began, spread, and escalated into riots because the people are completely fed up with the dystopian  nightmare they have been living.

On Monday 9/20 [AU time] a large group of members of the biggest trade union in Australia, the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU), went to CFMEU headquarters to confront their leadership, CFMEU Secretary John Setka.

Their demand was essentially simple – to have their voices heard and use the power of the trade union to stop the Victorian government overreach. The union members wanted their leadership to block the new vaccine mandate and stop the creation of a two-tiered society as outlined by Premier Dan Andrews.

On Tuesday 9/21 [AU time], the trade union members took to the streets in even larger numbers, now joined by blue-collar workers of all stripes who identify with the cause. Even workers who did not previously like the union members or their prior political tactics are joined in common cause over the issue of COVID-19.

The protesting ranks swelled. Tens-of-thousands of non-union workers joined with the trade union protesters in solidarity. Notice this is an interesting repeat of history when you consider Poland in the 1980s and the working class alignment to push back against the totalitarian regime of the former Soviet Union.

France has also become a hotbed of protests and riots because of the draconian nature of the restrictions and mandates instituted by President Macron.  As in Australia, vaccine passports are proving to be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.   Check out this Breitbart article.

The streets of France were flooded for the ninth straight week with protesters against President Emmanuel Macron’s vaccine passport scheme, with an estimated 121,000 demonstrators marching throughout the country, including about 19,000 in Paris.

In the French capital, there were four demonstrations against the pass sanitaire (vaccine passport) on Saturday, with demonstrators chanting “Macron, your pass, we do not want it,” “Macron, resign,” and “no to dictatorship”.

Even in New York City protest have begun over vaccine mandates.

The people of Holland are just as pissed off about the mandates and restrictions as everyone else.  They are taking to the streets in protest, however, they are doing it in a truly Dutch manner.  This headline from Louder with Crowder 150K DUTCH PEOPLE PROTEST RESTRICTIONS WITH RAVE, FUNKY DANCE MOVES. MEDIA…? says it all.

With the vaccine mandate the Biden Regime has now become a petty dictatorship

With the issuance of this unconstitutional edict Joe Biden crossed over the threshold into a level of tyranny that has only been exhibited in totalitarian dictatorships.  He has now gone further along that path than any president in the history of the United States, which is saying a lot considering the levels of tyranny the people of the United States experienced under Woodrow Wilson, FDR, and Obama.

This one provision of his proclamation violates so many fundamental provisions of the United States Constitution.

The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis before coming to work. OSHA will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to implement this requirement. This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees.

Nowhere under the Constitution is the federal government granted the authority to mandate that individuals must have a substance injected into their bodies, not even a hypothetical vaccine that is 100 percent safe and 100 percent effective against a seriously deady virus.  Every single individual has the right to decide for themselves what does and does not go into their bodies.  That right is a fundamental component of one of our most important God-given Natural Rights which is Liberty.

Liberty if the freedom to do whatever you want as long as you do not hurt others or interfere with the rights of others. Not getting vaccinated against a disease does not qualify as hurting others because others are free to get the vaccine if they wish and others can protect themselves against a disease by taking proper measures.

The liberty of every individual is protected from the federal government by the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment.   Here is the text of that amendment

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.

The federal government can only compel you to do something you do not wish to do if you are found guilty in a court of law, by a jury, as long as due process is upheld.  The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment offers the same protection against State and local governments.

For the federal government to force millions of Americans to get vaccinated with a vaccine that has not been fully tested and has a relatively high percentage of negative side effects is unconscionable, unconstitutional, and the very definition of tyranny.

This silly Federal mandate is creating potentially deadly local confusion

The Obama administration set an all time record for issuing federal mandates which unconstitutionally reached down to the local level.  One of which, the renumbering of highway exits, is just now being implemented on the local level here in my state.  On the surface this mandate seems rather innocuous.  In reality this mandate is creating a lot of confusion.  Over the labor day weekend this confusion had the potential of killing someone in my town.

The town I live in is bisected by a major highway and in my town there are three exits from that highway.  Ever since that highway was built fifty years ago the exits were numbered 1, 2 and 3.  Now they are numbered 2, 3, and 5 because the Obama administration decreed that all exits are now numbered by the mile markers they are at.

Renumbering exits after fifty years is causing a lot of confusion for town residents and motorists which can be comical.  This renumbering is causing a great deal of confusion amongst the police and fire department in my town and this confusion could potentially have killed someone over this past weekend.  I heard it unfold over my police scanner.

Instead of informing the units that an accident happened at a certain exit or the best access is this number exit the dispatcher for the police and fire departments now tell all units that “the incident is at the new exit number which was this old exit”.  This takes extra time which is not good during an emergency.  The dispatchers try real hard to use this system for every call but they do not always.  Neither do the police or fire units.  Sometimes the dispatchers use just the old exit numbers and sometimes the new numbers.  The police and fire units do the same.  This has caused a great deal of confusion since the exits were renumbered a month ago.

This past Sunday evening there were two major roll over accidents on the highway at roughly the same time.  Police and fire units were called in from two surrounding towns.  Dispatchers and emergency units kept mixing up old and new exit numbers.  Units were sent to the wrong exits.  This created delays in response time.  This could have resulted in someone’s death, luckily it did not. 

Because everyone is so used to the old system after fifty years and during a stressful emergency situations people tend to fall back on old habits I can see this happening for years despite having top notch dispatchers and first responders in my town.  This could easily be happening in towns and cities across this country because of s silly federal mandate.

The Biden Regime is far more sympathetic to the Taliban than the Tea Party

As the disastrous evacuation of Afghanistan unfolded during the past week and a half it has become clear that the Biden regime favors the Taliban over the supporters of President Trump.  How else would you explain all of the oddities and deeply troubling events that occurred during the disastrous evacuation and collapse of the American presence in Afghanistan.

It is clear from Joe Biden’s strong anti Second Amendment stance that he does not believe that the American people should be allowed to own guns.  That is a belief held by most progressives.  How does the Biden Regime feal about the Taliban possessing weapons.  Check out this article.

We left the Taliban more than 22,000 Humvees, a fleet of attack helicopters, and about half-a-million firearms.  Contingency planning, Biden style.  Horrifyingly, we have reportedly gifted the Taliban a treasure trove of technological tools and detailed records with which they can and will hunt down and exterminate American ‘collaborators:’

Yup the Biden Regime just supplied the murderousTaliban with enough weapons and ammunition to keep an army in business for years.  How long before those weapons are used in terrorist attacks around the world?

In its infinite stupidity the Biden Regime chose to partner with the Taliban terrorists.  They went so far as to give the Taliban lists of Americans still in Afghanistan:

U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport, a choice that’s prompted outrage behind the scenes from lawmakers and military officials.

It is most likely that these Americans will be killed by the Taliban and the Biden Regime made that happen.  Hundreds, if not thousands of Americans were abandoned to the Taliban when the Biden Regime meekly acquiesced to the Taliban’s demands and pulled out way too  early.

It is obvious the the Biden Regime is far more comfortable dealing with murderous Islamic terrorists than Americans who support the Constitution, individual rights, and free market capitalism.

The more Progressive the President the quicker and more thoroughly the US military gets destroyed

It is obvious to anyone living in the real world that the United States military is rapidly becoming a woke joke thanks to the buffoon currently inhabiting the White House.  Rather than focusing on readiness, training, and technologically improved weapon systems the US military now focuses on transgenderism, critical race theory, and Marxism.

Joe Biden and his handlers have populated the Pentagon with generals who are not fit to command a troop of circus clowns rather than the best trained, most professional, and most technologically advanced military that ever existed.

The philosophy now imposed on the US military is un-American and anti-America in the extreme.  The Biden regime has attempted to use the Capitol Hill riots as an excuse to purge the military of conservatives and those on the political right.  This is creating a dangerous situation where the US military could be more loyal to a political party rather than to the United States as a whole.

New technologies are not being explored.  New weapon systems are not being developed.  For many decades the United States military enjoyed a large technological advantage over the rest of the world.  Right now that is in grave danger.  China may soon over take us.

The disastrous events in Afghanistan last week are the direct result of seven months of bungling by the Biden regime.

Sadly this is not the first time the US military has experienced a rapid and total collapse.  It has happened twice before in the last fifty years.  Both times before there was a Marxist Democrat in the White House.  Things were so bad under Jimmy Carter that if the Soviets had decided to over run Europe they probably would have succeeded.  Things were almost as bad under Obama

With more than three years until the next election I am desperately worried that the United States military will be a world class joke before there is any hope of repairing the damage done by the senile clown inhabiting the White House.  Replacing Biden with Harris would not do any good at all. 

All of the spineless Republicans who failed to stand up and prevent and overturn the theft of the 2020 presidential election are responsible for this nightmare.

We are now paying a tremendous price for surrendering the culture war to the political left

Very few of us Conservatives and Libertarians ever attempted to fight the political left in the area of cultural issues.  We abounded Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry to progressives and other Marxists. 

Now the vast majority of movies and television programs are a cesspool of leftist propaganda.  Hardly any at all present America or its founding principles in a positive light. 

America bashing is one of the most prevalent themes encountered today.  Conformity, the liberal orthodoxy, and doing whatever those in authority demand have been hammered into the heads of all that partake in any form of entertainment. America’s sins of slavery and racism are constant themes,  They are portrayed as being the absolute foundation and soul of this nation, which are very much far from the truth.  All of the tremendous good that America has done and stands for is ignored. 

Young children who watch cartoons, Disney movies, and Nickelodeon are subjected to gay and transgender brainwashing.  I believe this is something that should be left out of children’s programming.  Most parents are probably unaware that this going on.

The liberal brainwashing on college campuses has gone unchecked by those of us on the political right for decades.  It has now spread through high schools and grade schools.  A recent poll declared that more than half of all young people have been brainwashed into viewing socialism as positive and capitalism negative.  No wonder so many young people voted for Biden and no wonder so many blindly follow all of the liberty destroying mandates and lockdowns.  If American founding principles and civics were still taught these mandates and lockdown would have ended soon after they were attempted.

Conservatives and others on the right allowed leftists to gain almost complete control of the news industry and social media.  Without the suppression of the truth about the theft of the 2020 presidential election Donald Trump would still be in office.  Without the suppression of real scientific facts about the effectiveness of masks and lockdown those liberty destroying ineffective mandates would not have remained in effect for more than a week or two.

We need to take up the culture war on all fronts immediately and fight to win.

19 Senate Republicans proved that our two party system is now completely dysfunctional

On Tuesday August 10th the 1.2 trillion dollar Infrastructure Bill written and championed by Democrats passed the Senate.  What is most appalling about this progressive nightmare is that 19 Senate Republicans voted for the passage of it. 

Democrats claim that this particular bill is only just a stand alone scaled down version of the original 3.5 trillion dollar Infrastructure Bill which was absolutely chocked full progressive refuse and serves as a mechanism to implement the Green New Deal.

As you can see from this Breitbart article 19 Senate Republicans Made ‘History’ for Joe Biden by Passing Bipartisan So-Called Infrastructure Bill the passed bull is just a Trojan Horse to pass the full blown abomination through Reconcliiation.

The $1.2 trillion, 2,702-page bipartisan infrastructure bill serves as the first part of a two-part approach for the Biden administration. The Biden administration hopes the bill would help facilitate funding of physical infrastructure, while the Democrat $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill would fund social spending programs, which includes the expansion of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to address the “Medicaid gap,” amnesty for illegal aliens, and a civilian climate corps.

While Sens. Portman and Bill Cassidy (R-LA), two GOP lead negotiators of the bipartisan bill, have insisted there is no link between the two infrastructure bills, the passage of the bipartisan bill appears to put the reconciliation bill on a glide path towards passing through Congress.

This Brietbart article $3.5 Trillion Budget Resolution Proves Link Between Two Infrastructure Bills proves that the 19 Republicans who voted for the bill have completely turned their backs on the American people and made it far easier for the Democrats to transform the United States into a socialist nightmare.

In the House of Representatives, the chair of the Committee on the Budget may adjust the allocations, ag- gregates, and other budgetary levels included in this con- current resolution to reflect changes resulting from the en- actment of an infrastructure bill or joint resolution, in- cluding legislation implementing the INVEST in America Act or a bipartisan infrastructure agreement.

If you are wondering how bad the full infrastructure bill is check out this statement by Massachusetts Senator Markey

Without question, the Green New Deal is in the DNA of this green budget resolution. All of the things that are in, we talked about in the Green New Deal. Now, we have to go even further in the years ahead. We can’t stop here. And it includes increasing the fuel economy standards for the vehicles which we drive. It means that we have to have a big agreement in Glasgow that brings the whole world together, later on this year, with President Biden, finally having a piece of legislation which passes, so that the rest of the world sees that we’re serious, that we’re the leader and not the laggard. You cannot preach climate temperance from a barstool. You can’t be the worst polluter in history and, simultaneously, tell other countries to stop, unless you are doing so yourself.

There was a time when the Constitution, individual liberty, and free market capitalism were principles that formed the foundation of the Republican Party. That is most definitely not the case now.  For the past several decades the Republican Party has increasingly proved to be just as corrupt and useless as the Democrat party.  This was most evident when the Republican Party did nothing to stop the theft of 2020 presidential election from President Trump.

Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson strongly opposed the political separation of the United States into two parties.  They feared that that would ultimately lead to the downfall of the United States.  Are they being proved right?   Neither party represents the vast majority of the American people.  They have not for a long time.  It is well past time for the American people to abandon both parties and either have no parties or a large number of much smaller parties.

Our continued compliance will result in never ending lockdowns and mandates

One of the true hallmarks of elitists on the political left is a manifest desire to control all aspects of the lives of those they consider to be the common folk.  They do not believe that the “great unwashed masses” are capable of deciding for themselves.  Unfortunately elitist leftists now make up a very large segment of the Democrat Party, academia, and the media.

For many decades these leftists here in the United States have been attempting to gain control of all aspects of life here.  During the Wilson, FDR, and Obama administrations they came close to gaining control. 

Emergencies, whether spontaneously occurring or man made,  have always been seen by the left as handy tools to seize control.  President Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel infamously stated “Never let a crisis go to waste.”   Rahm was not the first to utter those sentiments.  Leftists have been living by them for centuries.  Thomas Jefferson and a few other founding fathers warned about tyrannical governments using emergencies to strip rights and liberties away from individuals.  They warned that once this process has begun it is extremely difficult to stop and nearly impossibly to reverse.

F A Hayek, who wrote the Road to Serfdom, warned us about the dangers of letting governments use emergencies strip the liberty away from individuals when he wrote this in Law, Legislation and Liberty volume 3

Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded — and once they are suspended it is not difficult for anyone who has assumed such emergency powers to see to it that the emergency persist.

Ever since the Coronavirus pandemic began leftists worldwide and here in the United States have imposed lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine mandates on their populations.  All of these measures destroy the individual liberty of everyone who is affected by them.  Far too few individuals have stood up against these liberty destroying measures.  This is especially true here in the United States, which is quite shocking to me because individual liberty is at the very foundation the United States.

Here in the United States we have enjoyed a brief respite from these odious liberty destroying restrictions because the number of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths from the Coronavirus dropped and remained remarkably low for a couple of months.

Thanks to a wave new cases cause by the scary sounding Delta Variant Democrat controlled cities, counties, and one state so far have begun again mask mandates and lockdowns despite far less hospitalizations and deaths from this variant.   If you dispute this claim check out this article, and this article, and this article.

If we do not stop this now there will be a never ending cycle of lockdowns and mandates.  We will never get back to truly normal life.   We have to stop complying with these mandates. Our compliance is what is keeping them going.  We have to organize mass protests and mass civil disobedience immediately or we will never see the end of this nightmare.

The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act is another Democrat attempt to steal future elections

Stealing the 2020 Presidential Election was a rousing success for the Democrats.  Because of that they are attempting to ensure that they will have an easy time stealing all future presidential elections.  Their first attempt, the For The People Act, failed a couple months ago.  They are at it again with the Voting Rights Advancement Act, which is a rather repulsive name for this partisan refuse.  The sole purpose of this law is to overturn and outlaw all attempts to secure federal elections through measures such as Voter ID laws and cleaning up voter registration roles.

I first learned about this craven attempt at election theft from this action alert from the Heritage Foundation Stop H.R. 4, a Federal Veto of State Election Laws

H.R. 4 is a Leftist scheme to give President Biden’s bureaucrats in the federal government VETO power over state election integrity laws. Biden’s politicized lawyers in the Justice Department would use this veto power to overturn state voting laws they politically disagree with, such as extremely popular voter ID laws.

H.R. 4 would accomplish this by altering and weaponizing the Voting Rights Act (VRA) of 1965 for the Left’s partisan political gain.

This is a dangerously effective tactic, because the Voting Rights Act is generally a good and popular law. By stealing its good name for their new bill and partisan power grab, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer hope to gain mainstream America’s support by default.

It is exceedingly odious that this partisan nonsense invokes and changes the Voting Rights Act of 1965 because the original law:

Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act made it illegal to deny or abridge the right to vote on account of race or color. Section 2 reinforces and strengthens the protections in the 15th amendment. And importantly, section 2 is still law (as it should be!).

When most people think of the VRA, section 2 is usually what they think of. With H.R. 4, Pelosi seeks to weaponize lesser known provisions of the VRA (sections 3, 4, and 5).

Here are the changes that this new legislation would make to the original Voting Rights Act.

H.R. 4 would change Section 3 to enact a fast and loose definition of discrimination. Under this new “disparate impact” definition, a voting law that applies to all equally, but potentially results in a statistical difference in impact, would now be in violation of the VRA. Under this loose definition, the federal government is given wide latitude to invalide state election laws without showing any actual intent to discriminate.

Furthermore, H.R. 4 would change the coverage formula for “preclearance” found in section 4, which determines which states the federal government essentially has veto power over. The power of preclearance is found in section 5 of the VRA, and it essentially creates a federal veto power over the election laws of certain states.

As you can see the whole notion of preclearence in the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was  exploited by the Obama Administration to a overturn attempts to make elections more secure.  The Obama Administration’s abuse of preclearence was so over the top it was struck down by the Supreme Court.  This new legislation is just an end run around the Supreme Court

Preclearance is the process by which several states with a past history of voting rights violations were required by the VRA in the 1960’s to get pre-approval from the Department of Justice (DOJ) before they changed any state voting law.

Preclearance was originally supposed to expire after five years, but Congress extended it several times.

During the Obama years, Attorney General Eric Holder abused preclearance as a personal veto to stop states from passing common-sense voting reforms and lawsuits were filed challenging preclearance.

In Shelby County v. Holder (2013), the Supreme Court found section 4 of the VRA unconstitutional. Because the formula for selecting states for preclearance had never been updated since the 1970’s, states were being continually punished for 50-year old mistakes that had been long rectified.

After Shelby County, Leftist partisans in the federal government no longer had veto power over state election laws, and states were able to pass many common-sense reforms, like voter ID.

The Federalist has come out swinging against this latest attempt by Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats to steal elections How H.R. 4 Would Let Leftist Extremists At The DOJ Control The Entire Nation’s Elections

Why are Democrats in Congress staging a series of show hearings to generate support for H.R. 4, “The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act”? Because, they claim, there is a wave of “voter suppression” going on across the country.

That is nothing more than a political fabrication. Requiring voters to show ID to authenticate their identity, or trying to ensure voter registration rolls are accurate and up-to-date, are not “voter suppression” and don’t prevent any eligible individual from registering and voting.

H.R. 4 isn’t just unnecessary and unjustified. It’s a dangerous bill that would give the partisan bureaucrats of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department administrative veto powers over states’ changes to election procedures.

As Cleta Mitchell noted in The Federalist earlier this month, H.R. 4 is “even more insidious” than its cousin, H.R. 1, precisely because “it would enable the vastly well-funded Democrat ‘voting rights’ apparatus to control American elections.” This control would extend over states’ election integrity measures like voter ID (even if passed by ballot referenda approved by all of the voters of a state).

The Biden Regime has officially instituted a Ministry of Truth

Ever since Joe Biden was illegitimately installed in the White House his administration has demonstrated a very remarkable disregard for the Constitution of the United States.  This was on full display last week when Biden’s press secretary announced that the Biden regime has deputized Social Media corporations formally as the official Ministry of Truth for the federal government of the United States.  This is in direct violation of First Amendment.

This New York Post article White House ‘flagging’ posts for Facebook to censor over COVID ‘misinformation’ fully documents the shameful business.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday the Biden administration is identifying “problematic” posts for Facebook to censor because they contain “misinformation” about COVID-19.

Psaki disclosed the government’s role in policing social media during her daily press briefing after Surgeon General Vivek Murthy called on companies to purge more pandemic posts.

It absolutely not up to the federal government, or any level of government, to stop the flow of any type of information, whether it be disinformation or not.  Far too often governments label truthful information they do not like or is inconvenient to them as disinformation.

Censorship is a blatant violation of the First Amendment and is also a serious violation of the founding principles of the United States.  During the conference Biden’s press secretary and Surgeon General admitted to the censorship.

“We are in regular touch with the social media platforms and those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff and also members of our COVID-19 team — given as Dr. Murthy conveyed, this is a big issue, of misinformation, specifically on the pandemic,” Psaki said.

Murthy said “we’re asking [social media companies] to consistently take action against misinformation superspreaders on their platforms.”

This quote by the Surgeon General pings the irony meter,  The only way to ensure individuals can make informed decisions is if they have access to all of the information from all sides of every issue.

“Misinformation takes away our freedom to make informed decisions about our health and the health of our loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic. Health misinformation has led people to resist wearing masks in high-risk settings. It’s led them to turn down proven treatments and to choose not to get vaccinated. This has led to avoidable illnesses and deaths,” Murthy said.

Those on the political left have been proven wrong over and over again during this pandemic when it comes to science and medicine.  They have been distorting science for decades now to create a climate of fear so they can strip away the freedom and rights of all people.  Their response to the Coronavirus pandemic is the latest installment of this.

The political left has a very long history of labeling any information contrary to the progressive ideology as misinformation.  Something that is well documented in this Federalist article Democrats’ Definition Of ‘Misinformation’ Is Whatever Hurts Them Politically Today

Psaki maintains the government has “a responsibility, as a public health matter, to raise that issue” of people allegedly dying en masse because of uncensored Facebook posts that don’t comport with the White House’s vaccine messaging. This isn’t a caricature of the White House’s position either. When a reporter asked President Joe Biden directly last week what his message is to sites like Facebook, Biden replied, serious as a heart attack, “They’re killing people.”

What’s going on here isn’t really an attempt to save Americans from disease. It’s a desperate attempt by the ruling class to save their own rear ends from information that threatens their ideological goals.

Democrats at the helm of the executive and legislative branches aren’t looking to squash so-called misinformation because it’s the only way to keep people from dying (which still wouldn’t justify their authoritarianism, by the way). Biden, Psaki, and their friends in Congress and Silicon Valley are working to snuff out their opponents’ speech because not only do they think it will help them politically, as it likely did in the 2020 election, but because they believe they can get away with it — again, as they did in the 2020 election.

Marsha Blackburn is often on the right side of issues.  She is with this statement Marsha Blackburn Slams ‘Authoritarian’ Joe Biden for Working with Big Tech to Censor Americans

These revelations are deeply concerning.  The blatant actions by your administration to work with big tech companies to censor Americans’ free speech are shocking – and arguably a violation of the First Amendment.  Communist countries such as Cuba are currently taking away their citizens’ right to use the internet to communicate; the U.S. government should be standing up to, not looking to mirror, authoritarian regimes such as these
