Liberty’s Corner Quote of the Day

When Fascism Comes To America, It Will Look Like Justin Trudeau’s Canada

Trudeau’s dangerous not just because he’s abusing Canadians, but because he is providing the wish list for crackdowns by Democrats in the U.S.: “every single bank, credit union, investment broker and insurance provider in the country has been deputized to figure out if they have a blockader as a client, and to immediately freeze their accounts if so.”

William A Jacobson

The ugly truth is that Fascism has always been a political movement of the Left. Both Fascism and Communism have their roots in Socialism, a collectivist ideologically that subjugates the individual to the state. This is why it is so easy for Leftists to slide from one form of these collectivist politics to another. The claims from Trudeau and other Leftists that their political opponents, who support individual liberty and smaller government, are fascists is the height of absurdity and idiocy.

AP, Reuters and Twitter Create Cabal to Trample on Free Speech

The fascist onslaught on the free flow of dissenting information took another dark step on Monday when the AP and Reuters signed a deal to help Twitter decide what’s true, the Daily Caller reports. Just as any tyrannical regime throughout history, this new censorship troika cloaked its nefarious scheme in the language of providing for the greater good.

“We are committed to making sure that when people come to Twitter to see what’s happening, they are able to easily find reliable information. Twitter will be able to expand the scale and increase the speed of our efforts to provide timely, authoritative context across the wide range of global topics and conversations that happen on Twitter every day.”

Joanna Geary, Senior Director of Curation, Twitter

“Trust, accuracy and impartiality are at the heart of what Reuters does every day, providing billions of people with the information they need to make smart decisions. Those values also drive our commitment to stopping the spread of misinformation. We’re excited to partner with Twitter to leverage our deep global and local expertise to serve the public conversation with reliable information.”

Hazel Baker, Head of UGC Newsgathering, Reuters

“AP has a long history of working closely with Twitter, along with other platforms, to expand the reach of factual journalism. This work is core to our mission. We are particularly excited about leveraging AP’s scale and speed to add context to online conversations, which can benefit from easy access to the facts.”

Tom Januszewski, Vice President of Global Business Development, AP

These outwardly pious statements are just as false as those issued in the past by Hitler’s Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union or the present by Xi’s Communist China and Kim Jong-un’s North Korea to justify their own controls on the dissemination of information. Authoritarian regimes never admit that their actions are for the benefit of those in power and not for public good.

The idea that any of these entities, none of which have yet to apologize for their roles in pushing the false Russia conspiracy narrative, can be trusted to decide what is “reliable information” is farcical. Twitter is also notorious for suppressing news, such the Biden laptop story or evidence of election fraud, that harm the fascist regime now in power in Washington.

It is clear that despite these superficially noble sentiments, Big Tech and Big Media are now openly joining together to squash the dissemination of conservative and pro-liberty viewpoints. The new information commissars are acting as nothing more that the censors and propagandists for a far-left fascist new world order.

The Founding Fathers of our great Republic would be aghast if they knew how the pro-Liberty legacy that they bequeathed to future generations is now being squandered.

Biden and the Sovietization of American Justice

In a chilling statement showing his complete disdain for the rule of law, our purported ‘President’ Joe Biden said that he is “praying the verdict is the right verdict” and that he believed the evidence in the case is “overwhelming.” This comes just one day after the judge in the Derek Chauvin trial pleaded for elected officials to stop referencing the case “especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function.”

By doubling down on Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-California) inciting a mob to not to accept anything other than a guilty verdict in the case, Biden has violated his oath of office to protect American due process rights. Notwithstanding his claim that he withheld any public comments until after the jury was sequestered, Biden’s openly weighing in on the desired outcome of trial is a clear signal to the radical Left that they have his permission to riot and burn down cities if Chauvin is not convicted.

The actions and statements of Biden, Waters, and other Democrats undermines the independence of the judicial system and is more consistent with the practice of ‘telephone justice’ as practiced in the Soviet Union than the legal rights that Americans have been guaranteed under our Constitution.

The ‘Fundamental Transformation’ of America into a Fascist Despotism Speeds Up

The Democrats “fundamental transformation” of America from a constitutional republic into a fascist despotism is speeding along at a dizzying pace. It has been only three weeks since Joe Biden was installed as president, but it seems a lifetime ago considering all of the damage that he and his fascist allies have wrecked on this nation.

In contrast to the hollow claims of the Left that Donald Trump was a dictator, the Biden regime is actually undoing more than two centuries of political norms to criminalize political dissent and to destroy the liberties that our Founding Fathers fought to preserve. The following list of links are just the latest headlines on this drive toward despotism.

Biden has bypassed the constitutional order for legislation by issuing a record number of executive orders and actions. This despite the Democrats having control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, which gives Biden the full ability to move his radical agenda through legislation. The reckless speed of these actions is clear evidence that Biden and his handlers fear that their radical policy agenda will suffer if given full exposure in Congress.

The Democrats are transforming a constitutional process to remove a sitting president into an unconstitutional bill of attainder to prevent a private citizen from running for elective office and to undermine the right of American voters from choosing their leaders. The Democrats’ charge that Trump was “singularly responsible” for the mayhem in the Capitol has been exposed as a farce as more information comes to light that it was pre-planned.

The Democrats are pushing for a fundamental transformation of the U.S. military from apolitical force dedicated to protecting the nation’s security from foreign threats to a politically reliable force that can be unleashed against whoever the regime labels as “domestic extremists.” This is perhaps the most dangerous threat to Liberty in the Democrats’ relentless drive to despotism.

The Democrats are now brazenly calling for the blacklisting of political opponents from government employment and censoring their speech by labeling them as “extremists.” The Left has no embarrassment for its drive to openly politicize the civil service. Suppressing the circulations of dissenting voices has been one the basic tools of despotism since time immemorial.

The Democrats are fundamentally transforming American schools from institutions of education into tools of political indoctrination. We can expect the Biden’s Department of Education in the not too distant future to make the racist Critical Race Theory and the ahistorical 1619 Project part of the required curriculum in public and private schools.

Biden Press Secretary to Dismissed Pipeline Workers: “Let them eat cake”

On Monday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed a question from Peter Doocy of Fox News on where the American workerwho lost their jobs due to Joe Biden’s executive order shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline would get the promised “green jobs” by giving a snarky response as callous and out of touch as anything uttered by Marie Antoinette.

Well, I’d certainly welcome you to present your data of all the thousands and thousands of people who won’t be getting a green job,” Psaki answered. “Maybe next time you’re here you can present that.

In Psaki’s world, government officials are not to be questioned about the veracity of their claims or held accountable for failure to fulfill empty promises.

At least 11,000 American workers have already lost their jobs due to Biden’s executive order shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline. Thousands more workers in supporting industries will also lose their jobs as the the effects of Biden’s order trickles through the US economy.

Psaki’s dismissive response was pure deflection as she is fully aware, or should be if she had any cognitive abilities, that none of these now unemployed workers will be getting any new “green jobs.” Even if the Democrat’s energy policies were miraculously create thousands of well paying jobs, which is highly doubtful, they would not appear until five to ten years into the future. This is hardly comforting to families who have mortgage payments due next month and now have to scramble to replace lost incomes.

Secondly, the skill set for any of these future new jobs would be entirely different from that of the jobs now being destroyed. Any new employment generated in the “green energy” sector would undoubtedly go completely different set of workers than those who are now facing a bleak future.

In addition, the potential future green jobs will not undo the damage to the local economies inflicted by Biden’s imperious executive order. The many hotels, restaurants, barbers, and other mainstays of the local economy will find no solace in the formation of new jobs elsewhere in the country.

The Democrat’s constant retort that Americans who lose their jobs due to government interference in the economy can get equivalent jobs through retraining is reflective of a mindset that treats workers and interchangeable cogs rather than as individuals possessing unique sets of skills acquired over years of hard work.

In the view of Democrats, individual lives and welfare must necessarily be sacrificed to achieve progress toward the glorious future that can only be reached by controlling hand of the state. They misconstrue the proper role of government as one that guides the lives of its subjects rather than one that protects the liberties and security of its citizens. The path being pursued by Biden and the Democrats leads only to despotism, reducing free men to slaves of the state.

Critical Race Theory and the Racial Tribalism of Joe Biden and the Democrats

When Joe Biden delivered his divisive speech on his installation as president, he described the divisions in this country with these words: “Our history has been a constant struggle between the American ideal, that we are all created equal, and the harsh ugly reality that racism, nativism and fear have torn us apart.”

Biden was partially correct when he uttered those words. America today is indeed in a struggle between those who believe in the Founding idea that “all men [and women] are created equal” and those who support a racist ideology that would plunge America into the horrors of tribalism. The problem with Biden’s position, however, is that he mixed up the sides.

Biden made clear which side he was on when he signed an executive order that reversed President Trump’s executive order that banned the use of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the training of federal employees and contractors. CRT is a poisonous neo-Marxist ideology that judges a person’s worth solely due to his race. Except for which races are favored or disfavored, the core racial beliefs of CRT are indistinguishable from those of the KKK and Nazi Germany.

Biden went ever further in institutionalizing this racist ideology, now a dogma of the Democratic Party, when he appointed Susan Rice as the director of his Domestic Policy Council. Biden tasked Rice to implement the tenets of CRT, under the guise of “equity,” to all aspects of Federal policy.

CRT also holds a central role in the Democrats’ election strategy. Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage Mag has an excellent article on this entitled Critical Race Theory is How Democrats Plan to Win Elections on how they have weaponized CRT to terrorize the suburban middle class to support this racist dogma. Here is an excerpt, but I highly recommend reading the entire article:

Critical race theory is doing what it’s supposed to do by polarizing America along tribal racial lines and along class lines among white people. White suburban moms attend book clubs discussing White Fragility and other critical race theory texts as a form of networking. Having the right politics is crucial to your career in a variety of fields. Not all of the signs asserting that in this house the inhabitants believe in science, love, and black nationalism, are voluntary statements of belief. They’re people flying the new post-American tribal flag to fit in.

CRT as implemented by the Democrats would pervert the proper role of government. Under the Democrats’ totalitarian vision, the government will no longer be one that aims to protect American liberties as promised by the Founders. Instead, the government will use the coercive powers of the state to administer “social justice” and to ensure “equity” for the government-anointed favored racial and social groups. Government-imposed “equity” is the antithesis of equality.

CRT is an existential threat not just to their electoral chances of the Republican Party, however, but to the very concept of liberty as enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. As such, we need a robust response to this threat if our constitutional republic dedicated to liberty is to survive.

Republicans need to put the Democrats on a constant defense for their racist ideology. This should be central to Republican politics going forward. A return of GOP politics to the pre-Trumpian emphasis on tax reform, balanced budgets, and favors for the Chamber of Commerce as envisioned by Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), former Governor John Kasich (R-OH), and other “Bourbon Republicans” trying to restore l’ancien régime is insufficient in today’s fight against the totalitarian and divisive policies of the Democratic Party.

Sen. Schumer Calls on Biden to Assume Dictatorial Powers

The Democrat’s program to destroy our constitutional republic and replace it with a presidential dictatorship continues at a dizzying pace. During an interview aired on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that “it might be a good idea for President Biden to call a climate emergency.” Because this would allow him to “do many, many things” without legislation.

Here we have member of the US Senate, and not just any member but the Senate Majority Leader, asking the president to bypass Congress and to create new laws via executive action. Under the guise of a ‘climate emergency,’ Biden could use dictatorial powers to completely rearrange the economy of this country without any input from either Congress or the American people.

This would be in addition to the more than 30 executive orders, an order of magnitude greater than any previous president, that Biden has already issued in the first days in office. These executive orders go well beyond just regulating operations of executive departments but instead are setting public policy that should be determined by Congress.

Just a reminder, here is what the Constitution says about how this country’s laws are to be made:

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Article I, Section 1, U.S. Constitution

CNN Expands its Deplatforming Efforts to OAN and Newsmax

It wasn’t even a week ago that CNN was calling for cable companies to shut out Fox News from their channel line ups. You can now add One American News (OAN) and Newsmax to the list of competitors that CNN wants to silence. In a tweet today, CNN’s Oliver Darcy promoted an interview on CNN with Facebook chief security officer Alex Stamos about limiting “the capability” of all “conservative influencers” to reach their existing “huge audiences.”

It is no coincidence that CNN’s own business interests line up so conveniently with the political interests of the Democrat Party, that is how fascism works. The merger between Big Business and the American fascist party known as the Democrat Party is likely to accelerate under the incoming Biden administration as both sides strive to crush their respective competitors.

Twitter Censors Congresswomen for Questioning Election Integrity

Defying heavy criticsm of its censorship policies, Twitter today suspended the account of newly-elected Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, for 12 hours for violating its unexplained rules. The suspension came after Rep. Greene, who is a strong supporter of President Trump, in a recent tweet blamed the defeat of two Georgia senators on state leaders for failing to “fix our elections.”

“While in this state, you can still browse Twitter, but you’re limited to only sending direct messages to your followers — no tweets, retweets, or likes,” said the social media platform that has been censoring conservatives and others tweeting about problems with elections.

In a statement, Rep. Greene said, “The borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse is out of control. If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of ‘inciting violence’ simply for having an conservative view.”

Twitter’s censorship of a duly-elected member of Congress for expressing an opinion on an issue of national importance that is contrary to that of the incoming ruling party is a further example of the creeping fascism that is occuring in America. It is becoming increasingly apparent that Big Tech has allied itself with the Democrat Party to create a totalitarian chokehold on what Americans will be allowed to say or to read.

American Liberty is Under Attack

Two hundred and forty-five years ago the founders of this country pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to establish a country based on the fundamental principle that Governments are instituted to protect the rights of their citizens. The Declaration of Independence, America’s founding document, specifically mentioned the rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. What all of these rights have in common is that they acknowledge that God created us as free individuals. That as long as we are not infringing on the rights of others we are free to live our lives as we choose, beholden to no one else. Any properly formed Government would thus be small, interfering into the lives of its citizens as little as possible.

Today, however, this pro-liberty orientation is being challenged by anti-liberty forces who want to substitute fundamentally different principles for the Government of this country. They falsely claim that the driving spirit of this county is not 1776, but instead is 1619, when the first black slave arrived in Virginia. The entire history of this country, in their eyes, has been one of repression. This is a neo-Marxist outlook, largely substituting race for class in the original Marxist construct, but also including intersecting and overlapping vectors of repression based on other social identities, such as gender and sexuality. We are not to be viewed as individuals, but rather solely a members of various social groups.

This anti-liberty perspective perverts the role of Government from one that aims to protect American liberty to one that administers social justice. We are not to be left to run their own lives, but rather we must be controlled in order to properly balance the rights and privileges of various favored or disfavored social groups. This reduces the people from being free citizens to being subservient subjects of the State. A Government that is run on these principles is a direct attack on American liberty.

Most worryingly, the start of 2021 is showing signs that the anti-liberty forces in America are determined to ruthlessly consolidate their power so they can further their dreams of fundamentally transforming the country to fit their dystopian views. A totalitarian political party has now openly joined forces with large corporations to the impose their will on what they regard as a backward people. Big Tech, in particular, is doing the bidding of the Democrat Party to ensure dissenting views are purged from public forum. Other large corporations, such as airlines, banks, credit card companies, are being pressured to withhold their services from people who challenge this oppression. They may call it democracy or even social-democracy, but there is another word that more properly describes this mode of government, which is fascism.
