  • NYC mayor calls for ‘national response’ to rising violence after subway shooting

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) called for a “national response” to rising violence following a subway shooting that wounded over a dozen people on Tuesday. Adams told CNN’s Dana Bash in an interview that increased violence is an issue affecting the entire country and said that while officials have recovered more than 1,800 guns in the last three and a half months, the city needed some assistance. “We’re going to continue to do our job, but there is some assistance that’s going to be needed in our city, such as an empowering ATF,” the mayor said, referring to...

    Virtually all my life—well, since I could read, write, listen, and understand—I have looked respectfully to the Western democracies of the world as examples of how successful countries should be structured, governed, and led. As an African of European descent I have long longed for the day our leaders would take their cue from Western role models and improve the quality of governance visited upon populations struggling under mostly corrupt, incompetent, authoritarian misrule. As old age beckons, in a country where social safety nets are unavailable and the future looks so bleak, I have been compelled to look abroad and...
  • Wokeism Is a Cruel and Dangerous Cult

    American Greatness ^ | 23 Jan, 2022 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Wokeism has been described by its critics as the omnipresent use of race—and to a lesser extent, gender—to replace meritocracy and thus ensure equality of result. What follows from implementing that ideology are reparatory actions to reward those of the present by atoning for the injustices done to others in the past. Some see it as an update of 1960s cultural Marxism fads. Others scoff that it is just a return to 1980s-style political correctness. Still more see it as the logical successor to 1990s-type race, class, and gender obsessions—albeit with a shriller and more dangerous Jacobin, Soviet, and Maoist...

    American Mind ^ | 10/6/21 | Thomas D. Klingenstein
    This excerpt is from Claremont board chairman Thomas D. Klingenstein’s speech, “Winning the Cold Civil War.” In a traditional totalitarian regime, the government uses arbitrary violence to control every aspect of public and private life, all the way down to little league. In America, the government does not control everything. But today, through the power of the purse and the courts, the government influences a lot. And where the government leaves off, the cultural business complex takes over. Education, corporate media, entertainment, big business, especially big tech, are to varying degrees aligned with the Democratic Party, which is now controlled...

    Brownstone Institute ^ | NOVEMBER 17, 2021 | Alan Macleod
    Hannah Arendt’s seminal work The Origins of Totalitarianism (1948) makes for sobering reading in the world we see developing around us in the year 2021. Indeed, we find ourselves in an impasse of epic proportions where the essence of what it means to be human is at stake. The totalitarian attempt at global conquest and total domination has been the destructive way out of all impasses. Its victory may coincide with the destruction of humanity; wherever it has ruled, it has begun to destroy the essence of man.” – Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism, first published 1948.. Although it...

    Imagine, if you will, Gavin Newsom, Beto O'Rourke, AOC, and Maxine Waters as Presidents. Imagine Joe Biden staying in office until he dies then a decade after that? Imagine living in a country with no borders with your taxes based on your voting history? Imagine you have absolutely no power to fight it? It's not only possible, it is happening. Totalitarian rule can at once strike like pyroclastic flow hurtling down the mountainside or can insinuate itself slowly into our lives like a toxic cloud floating into a town. Our situation is the latter. Joe Biden came into office bent...

  • Totalitarian madness comes to Australia's New South Wales: With COVID as excuse, the state where Sydney is located has taken the lockdown to manic, paranoid extremes

    Perhaps because of its incredibly brave troops in WWI and WWII, not to mention the Crocodile Dundee films, Australia shared with America a reputation for being a wild and free place. That's not so anymore. New South Wales, home to Sydney, the largest city in Australia, has gone so overboard with COVID hysteria that the state is under martial law, and people are not only being told not to talk to each other anymore, but also being urged to spy and report on scofflaw neighbors. North Korea couldn't have done it better. And all this is happening in a state...
  • Excellent Video on the Signs of Our Times- Mass Hysteria

    PERSPECTIVE ON MASS HYSTERIA For those who are familiar with the "Roadmap of Soul Growth" lecture I have presented at several conferences, This video is detailing option #3 of the mid life crisis experience. It is the diminishing of self identity that precedes option #4 "The Dark Night of the Soul Experience. " It is where an ego that is in crisis mode embraces fear and is experiencing the loss of individual control, turns external and surrenders their individual will to another person and loses their own logical discernment. It is very similar to a trance state in hypnosis. This...

    “It can’t happen here” is a political cliche in the United States. Regardless of your personal viewpoint, there is a vast swath of the American population who simply do not believe in the possibility of any kind of totalitarianism in the United States. It’s worth noting that throughout history, in virtually every place that totalitarian regimes have arisen, the residents of these countries felt the same way. Russia was seen as too traditional and backward, the power of the Czar too entrenched to be defeated. Germany had been viewed throughout most of the modern period as the home of Goethe,...

    The Federalist ^ | 4/30/2021 | Conner Tomlinson
    Sir David Attenborough’s upcoming documentary, “The Year Earth Changed,” romanticizes the global lockdowns in 2020 for proving how “the natural world” would “do much better if we weren’t there at all.” Similar attitudes have circulated on social media since last March: from the “nature is healing” meme to Extinction Rebellion stickers calling humanity a “disease” and COVID the “cure” plastered across the East Midlands. An increasing number of liberal democratic governments are flirting with utilitarian approaches to policymaking, and removing any limiting principles on the scope of their overreach. With herd immunity on the horizon, COVID is expiring as a...

    “Exile" conjures images of banished figures like Napoleon, who languished on the island of Elba, rendered powerless by isolation. Groups of people considered troublemakers also have been exiled from their lands. Diasporas of "undesirables" like the Jews have been a constant in the history of nations whose rulers wanted to be rid of what they considered indigestible elements. Exile within one's own country by a totalitarian regime has been less noted. For such an enterprise, we may look at Vichy France, which was under the thrall and control of a fascist political system imported by Germany but facilitated by French...

    Winston Churchill said: You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police. Yet in their hearts there is unspoken-unspeakable-fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts! Words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because they are forbidden. These terrify them. A little mouse-a little tiny mouse! -of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.

    Congressional Democrats are demanding to know what communications giants such as Comcast and AT&T are going to do about “the spread of dangerous misinformation.” How quickly this country is descending into an authoritarian regime where the government controls speech and the flow of information. Ahead of a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing Wednesday, California Democratic Reps. Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney wrote a letter to Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, Dish, Verizon, Cox, Altice, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Google, and Hulu. According to the New York Times, which says it has reviewed the correspondence, the pair is not pleased that...

    This is an alternate history scenario that didn't really happen. Consider it something like a concept for a new video game. The included backstory is purely speculative fiction. Welcome to the new Totalitarian States of AmericaIt’s time to understand and accept what’s happened. The time for argument and discussion is over. And complaining about it is about as relvant as French citzins bemoaning how the Nazis are tracking mud up and down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. The Democrats and their collaborators will do as they please, because they can. They now have the power to subdue anyone, or any group...

    Sometimes what you don’t see is more important than what you do see.Filling D.C. with soldiers meant that no one was going to measure Biden’s crowds. The only crowds were heavily armed and had been ordered to come. The complete lack of enthusiasm for the new one-party state that was getting its Mussolini on was the dog that didn’t bark.

    So much has happened in the past ten weeks that it’s impossible to itemize it all here. Even so, the dust and fog fueled by the hurricane of mendacity that’s been passing for ‘news’ is lifting. And it’s lifting despite the continuing misinformation aimed at keeping citizens from asking any serious questions about the recent elections for fear of being ‘cancelled’, jailed and even impeached. We all know there was an election November 3. We all know that when we went to bed that night, incumbent U.S. president Donald J. Trump was winning re-election handily, even in the five swing...
