You can see it coalescing. Democrats know they are going to be slaughtered in the 2022 midterm elections, and they need to do something to stop the hemorrhage. One by one the stones fall into place as to how they plan on retaining control. It will take four steps.
When Biden as asked about Title 42, he floundered into his rationale for retaining the mask mandate. It's not sure he even knew what he was talking about, but it was clear he wants the CDC to be in complete control of the country.
Dr. Anthony Fauci took major heat after lamenting on Thursday that it was "disturbing" that a federal court would rule against the CDC’s COVID-19 travel mask mandate, adding his opinion that "This is not a judicial matter."
Prominent conservative Twitter users crushed Fauci for his "stupidity", with many accusing the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director of thinking he and the CDC "are above the law," and of being "hell bent on using Covid to control people."
"Because as a matter of principle, we want to be able to be in a position where if, in fact, it is strongly concluded by the scientists that we need Title 42 that we be able to do that. But there has been no decision on extending Title 42."Democrats need to retain the mask mandate because
2. They need fear James Carville says no one fears the Democrat party and says "you can't govern without fear." Democrats need to be the party of fear. That ought to scare you right there.
3. Rewrite history
In trots Barack Obama:
Former President Barack Obama on Thursday said he still holds regrets for failing to see the rampant spread of disinformation within the U.S. while he was president, particularly around the 2016 election.
In a speech at Stanford University on the dangers of disinformation, Obama touched on the 2016 election, which U.S. intelligence has long confirmed Russia meddled in.
The former president said no one in his administration was surprised Russia had spread disinformation across social media platforms in an effort to sway the U.S. election, but he regretted not fully understanding how vulnerable America had become to such content.
"What does still nag at me though was my failure to fully appreciate at the time just how susceptible we had become to lies and conspiracy theories, despite having spent years being a target of disinformation myself," Obama said, seeming to reference the racist and unfounded conspiracy theory that he was not born in the United States.
And, of course, this is a threat to Democracy.
In the speech, Obama expressed his fears about disinformation in the digital age and the new information ecosystem, warning it was imperiling Democracy.
He got specific
He also slammed disinformation spread by former President Donald Trump even put Russian President Vladmir Putin and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon together as people trying to attack Democracy.
"People like Putin and Steve Bannon, for that matter, understand it’s not necessary for people to believe this information in order to weaken Democratic institutions," Obama said, adding, "You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theorizing that citizens no longer know what to believe."
What he obviously meant was that the threats come only from conservatives. Left wing disinformation, such as his 2013 "Lie of the Year" and his promoting of the fake Russia-Trump collusion and framing Donald Trump, well, never you mind all that. What's important is that conservatives be shut down.
We did learn one thing for sure- Barack Obama is as full of sh*t as he ever was.

Fine. Then war is upon us.
Well nkw,they have lost a major battle in Controlling speech by losing Twitter if it goes through.
As with all totalitarians... the goal isn’t governance. It’s the elimination of opposition.
We’ll see if Biden orders the SEC to break up Twitter if the Musk deal goes through. The Left can’t tolerate their control of the narrative being challenged.
The pathway to democracy is the elimination of freedom 🤪
Libtard logic 101
The Storm (of war) is upon us.
Little ‘d’ democracy has never been synonymous with Democrat, ever. ‘Democrat’ should be listed in Webster’s Dictionary as a profane word, IMO.
I think you could add.....To fundamentally change Amerika and keep some semblance of legitimacy they need to import millions of new voters and build a “poor Latino/South American plantation” to subsidize the existing “poor Black voter plantation”...Too many Blacks are catching on and escaping ...
Pure democracy is one step away from dictatorship.
That’s why we’re a Republic.
If they cheat..they can say and do any crazy thing they want.
The internet fascists will do their best to censor opposing views.
And the propagandist press will, of course,back then up.
Democracy is as bad as any totalitarian gov’mt. It is mob rule.
A representative democracy is the only way to go.
Democrats (the party of slavery) don’t like that since it means those in office bear responsibility and they can’t have a mob to rule.
I see a clearer path. If we eliminate all Democrats . . . .
Includes a choice tweet from the Hildabeast (21 April '22) on the need for the EU to pass Tech Censorship so that the US can join in suppressing info disliked by the gatekeepers!
“Democrats: the pathway to Democracy is the elimination of free speech”
Democrats: the pathway to maintaining a Republic is the elimination of all those who embrace communism.
There..... fixed it.
If I had to choose between the two, I'd go with the dictator. At least there's a chance he'd be a good, benevolent dictator. At the very least a dictator is more predictable.
Interesting idea. I have to agree.
And if he's a psychopath, at least you're only dealing with one person, and there's a chance you can unthrone them the time honored and old-fashioned way.
With a mobocracy you're dealing with the fevered fear driven brain farts of millions stampeding over whatever cliff someone spooked the herd towards.
There’s a funny thing about how people interact with authority. The people in authority and their influencers (the press for the most part) haven’t figured it out yet.
The tipping point is unpredictable.
