Top O’ the Briefing
Happy Friday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Never go to a spa that offers Crisco massages.
Remember the United States of America? That place was super cool.
Joe Biden doesn’t seem to be a fan, sadly. His half-century in government apparently soured him on all of that freedom and Constitution stuff. Now that he gets to play president in his dotage he seems determined to strip away everything about the Republic that we love.
It’s getting creepier by the minute out there and the sad thing is that so many formerly free Americans are all too willing to go along with it. The radicals from the 1960s who wanted all of the freedoms became jackbooted thug teachers who indoctrinated a generation to be not just obedient to a heavy-handed government, but thrilled with it as well.
I led off the Briefing a couple of days ago going over the latest scariness from the Dept. of Justice. More detail about that came out yesterday, proving that it wasn’t just a product of my generally skeptical imagination.
“The federal government is using its power to silence and intimidate American citizens,” said conservative talk radio host and author Mark Levin, who released a bombshell letter on his program Thursday. “They’re trying to chill free speech.”
The letter, from the nonprofit organization America First Legal (AFL) to the United States Inspector General, claims, “In light of the Attorney General’s Memorandum of October 4, 2021, it appears the Department of Justice is committing the full weight of its federal law enforcement resources to prevent parents from exercising constitutionally-protected rights and privileges, for inappropriate partisan purposes.”
The AFL says it’s an inside job by “key Biden Administration stakeholders, including the National Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers, and others, have combined to oppress, threaten, and intimidate parents to chill and prevent them from exercising the rights or privileges secured by the Constitution. To date these efforts, though extensive, have generally proven ineffectual.”
As we here at the Morning Briefing are fond of reminding people, teachers’ unions are pure evil, especially the National Education Association. Now they have armed federal assistance at the ready. Comforting, no?
The signs of Sovietization are everywhere these days, especially in California, where a doctor got hauled out of the UCLA Medical Center for not being vaccinated and residents of Los Angeles County will soon have to show their vax papers to the COVID KGB when they go out to get a sandwich.
None of this is normal or good but that doesn’t stop our drooling Moron-in-Chief from being proud of the wreckage he’s strewn about the place.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has a very sobering warning for his fellow Americans in the wake of all of this:
When asked what he would tell Americans concerned that they’ll end up on some government list if they “say the wrong thing” at their local school board meeting, Paul didn’t mince words.
“I would say be afraid. Be afraid of your government,” he responded. “That’s a sad thing from someone in the government to say, but the thing is, is those lists already exist.”
I have enough life experience and perspective to know that everything isn’t an existential crisis. Joe Biden’s Reign of Error is starting to make it feel as if the country is in the throes of one though. It’s some small comfort that at least half of the United States is disturbed by all of this.
Now we have to pray that some folks in the other half wake up before it’s too late.
