Of Manmade Glitches and Government Snitches

Today, I am going to take the unusual step of writing a commentary about a column…

A column so precise, incisive, revealing – and alarming -- that you simply can’t afford to miss it.

And, I’m about to make sure you don’t!

You ready?

The column was by my friend and fellow scribe Jeffrey Tucker. Jeffrey is, in my opinion, the leading intellectual light in the whole wide world of political/cultural punditry.

He invariably zeros in on the exact issues that matter most. And he then titillates as he elucidates.

You can’t ask for more than that, can you?

In his most recent column – appropriately entitled “A Nation of Spies and Snitches,” Jeffrey tackles three tough topics that I believe you really should instill in your mind and inscribe in your heart –

Because they directly affect your daily life.

And, frankly, in my opinion, they also provide more than ample reason why you now need to leave the US and live that daily life somewhere well south of the US border – where you can still be and breathe free!

Let’s just enumerate Jeffrey’s Top 3, shall we?
  1. The Censors
The malevolent martinets who stand astride the social media monolith have now begun their final purge.

They are totaling censoring any and all who dare to disagree with the Biden regime (which is about 70% of the population as of last count)

As Jeffrey points out, “It turns out that this week has been devastating for dissidents. Thousands are being purged.”

All of whom, it goes without saying (which means it needs to be shouted from the rooftops) made the fatal mistake of daring to criticize one or another of the inane, even insane, authoritarian acts of the increasingly out-of-control political elite.

How can they get away with such a thing? you might reasonably ask. Isn’t censorship illegal?

Jeffrey explains:

“Big tech gets away with this stuff because it is ‘private.’ Right. What’s happened is that government knows that its own censorship would not survive a court challenge, so it has effectively nationalized the biggest companies to make them bear the brunt. They step up sometimes willingly and sometimes just because they are forced to.”

Now, please allow me to explain all of that a little further, if I may.

Do you remember that I have said over and over again, ad infinitum, that absolutely nothing the political elite do is accidental or coincidental?

Well, this unholy alliance between Big Government kleptocrats and social media technocrats provides a case in point.

Sensing early that by controlling social media content, they could silence dissent and monopolize propaganda, the grasping, greedy politicians inserted Section 230 into the so-called “Communications Decency Act of 1996” (politicians are past masters at giving their most onerous and blatant power grabs the most pious sounding monikers, aren’t they?)

Section 230 creates a partnership between the politicians and social media overseers that allows the Facebook, Twitter, Google and the rest to censor every single word you say – all under the protective hand of government license.

And that, my friends, is called fascism.
  1. The Surgeon General
Most of us of mature age (my grandiloquent variation for “old geeks”) probably still remember the benign, if somewhat, risible C. Everett Koop (imagine Burl Ives in full military garb) when we think of the surgeon general of the United States.

And, frankly, we kind of liked it when he demonstrated his concern and compassion by continually lecturing us on the highly colorful Food Pyramid. As in, “Eat your Snap, Crackle, and Pop – and stay away from Skittles, Babe Ruths and Charleston Chews.”

Then came the inimitable Jocelyn Elders, and things started taking a strange twist. Jocelyn, you will recall, focused her tenure upon the need to instruct elementary school students on how to masturbate correctly. No, folks, you can’t make this stuff up.

But, as risible and riotous as Everett and Jocelyn were, the current surgeon general is a whole different breed of cat. They were preposterous. He is predatory. They were all about keeping you healthy (and in Jocelyn’s case, happy). He is about keeping you in line – and, if necessary, in chains.

Here is how the ever-erudite Jeffrey explains it:

“I still cannot believe what the U.S. Surgeon General said a few days ago. He demanded that big tech turn over the names of the people who he believes are spreading ‘misinformation.’ Not only that. He provided a link to a new snitch line set up by the federal government so that anyone can go there and report others. It’s the digital equivalent of the Red Guard, using neighbors and friends in a proxy war against citizens. We’ve never seen anything like this.”

Remember when Nina Jankowski over at DHS set up the 1984ish Ministry of Truth to monitor – and censor – every word you wrote on social media? Word got out, and the Ministry was shut down. Ostensibly. But, as I warned you at the time, it wasn’t really shut down – because the oppressive government agents would simply bring it back under another guise.

Which, as Jeffrey reports, they now have.
  1. Russia and Gasoline
Here is Jeffrey’s take:

“The propaganda is pouring out now at an astonishing rate, much of it designed to find some scapegoat for the inflationary calamity all around us. … Incredibly, the Biden administration is telling people that this is all the fault of Russia, while meanwhile blocking all Russian energy imports which forcibly restricts supply while seeking new sources of oil and gas in Venezuela. It’s all just insane.”

That’s Jeffrey’s take. And now for my take – a trifle more stridulous than his:

It’s all just lies, lies, lies.

Joe Biden deliberately destroyed America’s energy independence by shutting down the environmentally friendly oil pipeline. He then doubled down on his idiocy by virtually ending oil exploration.

Then came his lies. Then his lies about his lies. And finally, his lies about his lying lies.

But, don’t be surprised. Because, quite frankly, that has long been the political elite’s SOP, their stock in trade.

Ever hear of the CIA’s Operation Northwoods (designed to launch government sponsored terrorist attacks across the US)? Thank God JFK stopped it in its tracks (for which he may well have paid with his life). How about the Bay of Tonkin – the lie that triggered the War in Vietnam?

Remember, the “Read my lips, no new taxes” lie? How about “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”? Then, there was the Weapons of Mass Destruction. And Barack Obama’s “My healthcare will never cost any American more than $2500 a year.” And how about Slo Joe’s “I will never halt fracking”?

Lies, lies, lies.

After nearly 50 years as a top level political operative in Washington, I can tell you this:

The US government doesn’t lie about its policies. Government policy is a lie.

Let’s put it this way: If the politicians’ noses grew every time they told you a lie, they would all reach around the globe.

So, you might ask, what does all of this have to do with your making your move to the good life at a great price in Central and South America?

Well, here is how Jeffrey Tucker ends his foreboding column:

“Snitches, liars, and despots are on the loose. Life has become dramatically unstable and sometimes even terrifying.”

Might I suggest that you have worked too hard, strove too bravely, been too upright and honest, and lived far too long to have to put up with the current US miasma of manmade glitches and sniveling little snitches?

Might I further suggest that you have earned the right to be and breathe free?

And might I finally suggest that all you need now do to escape the fetor and reclaim your freedom is to activate your Plan B Escape Route A-S-A-P?

Sound good?

Well, then, “Come, my friends, tis not too late to seek a newer world”… in the sun, the sand, and the surf of Central and South America!
