It is self-evident that no number of men, by conspiring, and calling themselves a government, can acquire any rights whatever over other men, or other men’s property, which they had not before, as individuals. And whenever any number of men, calling themselves a government, do anything to another man, or to his property, which they had no right to do as individuals, they thereby declare themselves trespassers, robbers, or murderers, according to the nature of their acts.
For comparison’s sake, consider Biden and his family vs. President Trump and his family. Consider especially the intersection of their actions and how the Democrats and their media addressed said actions.
The differences are stark. Those same differences also give credence to the Dems’ claims that our very democracy is in jeopardy, but that the Dems are projecting their own guilt and the threat they pose to America upon President Trump., his family, and the 10’s of millions of patriots who supported and continue to support him.
That’s one of the biggest and most important, if not the biggest and most important, threats facing the Civilized, Free, Western World today – the blurred and biased line between facts and fiction today. Between the Lamestream Media’s Fake News and Social Media’s “Fact Checkers,” it’s largely impossible for anyone to distinguish between facts and fiction.
But then, this hellish situation should hardly be considered unexpected. After all, just as an informed Citizenry is necessary to Democracy, a misinformed Citizenry is needed for tyranny to sink its roots in society. And there are certain sorts who sorely desire such tyranny… for all the best reasons of course.
And that is the fundamental basis of the a cappella agitpop that tries to pass itself off as news in America. The Lamestream Media’s go-to play is to find something, no matter how localized or minute, spin it into something outrageous, and sensationalize it in order to turn it into a widespread “issue” that demands the readers’ or viewers’ attention and reaction. Simply put, it’s how they make their money.
And, when the Lamestream Media is particularly successful, e.g., any negative encounter between a Black and the police, they create an actual nationwide problem that further feeds attention and money to the “news” media’s coffers.
Biden was installed as POTUS by the Democrat Party and their Lamestream Media 52 days ago and, during that time, we’ve heard very little from him or about him and his actions. In many ways, Biden is MIA or, at least, whatever he’s doing, e.g., Executive Orders (EOs), is going largely unremarked and unreported upon by the MSM. And, he’s yet to hold a single formal press conference since the “election.” Of course, this has been “explained” by Leftist secondary media sources as being Fox News’ fault. 🙄
So, all humor and sarcasm aside, we, the People really have no real idea if Biden is just doing essentially nothing to-date or if he’s doing things but the Democrat-controlled media is failing to report upon while, at the same time, the few less-than-Leftist outlets are shut out completely. Either way, this is a problem, a potentially existential problem.
Biden – Biden – Biden Where’s Biden And What Is He Doing?
A Do Nothing POTUS
In the former case, Biden doing little to nothing of import beyond what little we’ve heard of, this is a problem for our nation because a “Do-Nothing” POTUS is not a good thing. It turns over the reins of governance to the Legislative branch alone. This threat is, however, mitigated in Biden’s case because there’s vanishingly little chance that anything he did or has done was or would be in the best interests of the nation and our People.
But … That begs the question of why is Biden doing so little since taking office and why is he sequestered away from the media. Is he just overwhelmed and incapable of moving forward at a more normal pace due to the vast amount of changes he and his handlers would obviously want to make? Or, is Biden incapable of doing anything safely and is being kept away from the media because dementia has robbed him of cognizance?
That the Democrat-controlled Congress is seeking to strip Biden of both his sole authority to use nuclear force and his War Powers, scarily lends some evidence to the latter possibility – the possibility that the Democrats installed senile and mentally incompetent almost-octogenarian as POTUS and are now mitigating the risk such a person could pose. And that is an existential threat to our nation and people – and to the world at large, come to that.
A Say Nothing Media
The latter option, that Biden quietly doing things but the Democrat-controlled media is remaining silent upon it, is a different yet equally threatening possibility. While less physically dangerous, keeping the American citizenry ignorant of the actions of the POTUS strikes at the very core of our nation and People’s liberty, since a properly functioning democracy depends on an informed electorate.
The path to tyranny normally starts with censorship of negative press about the ruling person or party. In the end, it doesn’t matter if that is enforced censorship or allegiance-derived codes of silence by a complicit media. The latter does, however, indicate that there is a deeper problem in America that patriots will need to solve for.
In the end, it does matter what the issue is with Biden’s apparent lack of activity in office so far. Yet, it is a case where either reason is evidence of a great, glaring, and dangerous problem with both him and the media.
“Lights, Camera, Fiction!” Truly, this is how, if anyone was still interested in either honesty or America’s Constitution, how every single broadcast by the Lamestream Media should start. After all, they’ve proven time and time again over the years that the truth is no longer in them and something they actively avoid speaking with what amounts to religious fervor.
