What’s Your Emergency? Covid or the Recession?
Posted On August 27, 2022
Did you know we’re still in a federal COVID emergency? Did you know the Biden administration plans to extend it another 90 days in October? Did you know Joe Biden cited the COVID emergency as the legal justification for canceling student debt, even though the emergency is over enough for his administration to argue COVID restrictions should be lifted at the border?
A famous economist wrote in 1979:
‘Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded — and once they are suspended it is not difficult for anyone who has assumed emergency powers to see to it that the emergency will persist.
It’s a pretty safe bet that, once the COVID emergency is over, the climate emergency will begin. Which is one reason the authoritarian Left should never be allowed to get its hands on power again.
One thing that is foreseeable under a climate emergency will be a move to force rural and small town Americans into big cities to conserve gasoline, all to save the planet, you see. Leftists are already salivating about the prospect, because they hate you and think you’re a useless eater.
What you believe matters nothing to them. Joe Biden is trying to force Catholic hospitals to kill babies in abortions after the overturning of Roe v. Wade. And surprise, surprise – he’s invoking another emergency law, this one related to medical treatment, to do it.
Maybe he should just take over all the Catholic hospitals and have the government run them. That’s what Maxine Waters wanted to do to the oil companies. She said in a congressional hearing, wagging her finger: “Guess what this liberal will be all about. This liberal will be all about socializing, uh, uhm….” There she paused and you could see the wheels turning – ‘should I say this out loud or not?’ She continued: “[This liberal] would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies.”
Then we have FBI whistleblowers stepping forward this week to warn us how the FBI has become politicized and hell-bent on saving democracy from the people. The nation’s premier law enforcement agency, unfortunately, has descended into political persecution. The whistleblowers said major investigations at the Bureau – like January 6th and Hunter Biden’s laptop – have been twisted for political reasons. They also pointed to the FBI’s witch hunts against two dozen parents opposed to school board policies.
That’s not good. At least the FBI is supposed to have weapons, but now we have the IRS recruiting armed agents willing to use deadly force against people who don’t pay their taxes. And Joe Biden just signed a bill to double the size of the IRS. I bet you didn’t know a bunch of other federal agencies are armed and weaponized, too. Ones you wouldn’t expect, like the Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration, and – get this – the Department of Education Inspector General’s office. Hmm, I wonder if they go to school board meetings, too. Feel better about your government, now?
Yes, the authoritarian Left is all about emergencies – big and small, wherever they can conjure them up. The far Left Green Party in Germany is setting up reporting centers where neighbors can inform on neighbors who use the wrong pronoun or don’t want their country overrun by migrants. The California Attorney General’s office leaked the names and addresses of thousands of gun owners in the state, setting them up for doxing or worse. The World Economic Forum just published an article saying there are good reasons to chip your kids. Ah yes, implants – the government needs to know where you are at all times, right? I’m telling you, these people hate you and don’t think you should even exist. “We just don’t need the vast majority of the population,” a World Economic Forum adviser said this month. We’ve got a “useless class” of “unemployable” human beings who “are no longer part of the story of the future” as the World Economic Forum wants to tell it. Replacing people with machines is a big part of that story.
Well, that’s pretty clear. But the future is now. We’ve left the era where people simply had political disagreements, and entered an era where authoritarian Leftists are at war with the rest of us. There is no compromise with these people. They must be defeated, and you can start with the Democrat Party which has lurched Left and is growing a big authoritarian streak. What’s their emergency? Democrat leaders don’t have enough wealth and power for themselves, yet, and they’re trying to get it from you. Power is the great motivator, as parents who attend school board meetings and others who want to keep their freedom are finding out.
