Today’s show opens with a White House desperately trying to gaslight Americans over the tone and messaging in the Thursday night speech Biden delivered to the nation in prime time. Over the weekend, President Biden was asked if he really felt Trump supporters were a threat to our nation? Biden shot back, “I don’t consider any Trump supporter a threat to the country.” Yet, when we go to the prepared speech delivered Thursday night, he specifically said, “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.” I guess kudos to him for remembering we are a Republic.
The term gaslighting simply means trying to convince you that what you know to be true, isn’t true; or, what was said, was never actually said. You see, it’s your fault for hearing it incorrectly or misunderstanding it. It doesn’t matter if he actually said it because all the matters is what is being said today, not a couple days earlier. This is just like the Ministry of Truth in 1984, reminding the people that history is whatever we say it is, even if it changes day to day.
But, no matter how hard they try to walk it back, the President has been building this case for weeks ahead of time. It started with ultra MAGA, then dark MAGA, then nuclear MAGA to semi-fascists and now they are an enemy to democracy and to the Republic. It’s comical to think they didn’t mean to say that. All we need to do is go back to Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, whose definition of “extremism” is to be in the minority. BTW, this is the same Press Secretary who said Joe Biden has saved or created 10,000 million jobs. If you don’t have a calculator on hand, that’s the same as saying 10 billion jobs. Folks, we only have 334 million Americans living in this country, but if we question them, we are demonstrating our extremism and our hate for our democracy.
In another quiet update to a website, the NIH now acknowledges Ivermectin as an approved antiviral treatment for Covid-19. Yet again, public health and the stooges in legacy/mainstream media are a year an a half or more behind where the facts have been for those who wanted to see them. As it turns out, there is a reason Big Tech was always in-line with the approved narratives. Facebook’s third-party “fact-checkers” are actually funded by folks with ties to Johnson & Johnson, whose CEO just so happens to be a former CDC Director. The incestuous relationship between government and the media, to include social media, reveals why the propaganda is so powerful and why the truth is so often concealed or censored.
And it’s not just related to Covid and public health. Stacey Lennox, writer at PJ Media, has a piece revealing the government and many of its agencies colluded with social media to intentionally censor Americans. It’s not theory or conjecture. This is based on the initial discoveries from a lawsuit brought by two different States Atttorney’s Generals. The degree to which censorship was organized, expected and carried out should enrage all Americans, regardless of topic. When the government thinks it is okay to circumvent the First Amendment, it’s only a matter of time before they circumvent all of them.
