Biden’s Radical Agenda

If a previously free nation anywhere else in the world started attacking norms, traditions, and freedoms, we would denounce them.

The left and its media allies spent four years haranguing Donald Trump as a dictator and a threat to our norms and values. Joe Biden campaigned as a uniter, promising a return to normalcy.

As usual, the left’s narrative was completely wrong and the exact opposite of the truth. We’re about three months into the Biden/Harris administration, and these first few months tell us a lot if we are discerning and connecting the dots.

One of the first things Joe Biden did when he took office was remove Donald Trump’s pro-life protections, forcing taxpayers to subsidize abortions. That alone tells you how extreme this administration is. (The Biden administration is expected to repeal Trump’s ban on federally funded fetal tissue research.)

Then Biden opened the border, creating a massive crisis. Experts believe that a record two million illegal aliens will enter the country this year.

The first bill that Biden and Pelosi introduced in Congress was HR 1 — a federal takeover of elections in your state. It bans popular voter ID laws in all 50 states. Why would they do that? The answer is obvious. It’s easier to cheat if you outlaw voter ID.

Now they are attempting to seize control of the Supreme Court by changing the number of justices from nine to 13. Adding four more liberal activists to the Supreme Court is exactly what Biden needs to remove the court as a check against the left’s radical agenda.

But that’s not all. They are advancing legislation to make Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico states, adding four more leftists to the Senate.

And they’re working hand-in-glove with the tech titans to censor conservatives on social media, silencing opposition voices. (See below.)

My friends, it’s the left that is attacking our norms, traditions, and our freedoms — just as it always does. It’s the left that wants to fundamentally transform America!

All these actions are more reminiscent of communist China than they are of American traditions. In fact, if a previously free nation anywhere else in the world started doing these things, we would denounce them and put them on a watch list of nations threatening the freedom of their people.

Another Russia Hoax Exposed

Remember the outrage last year when a leaked report suggested that Russia had paid bounties to the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan? Democrats in Congress and the media used the report to hammer Trump for being soft on Russia. Joe Biden raised the issue during one of the debates.

The Pentagon said at the time that there was no corroborating evidence. Intelligence officials added that President Trump wasn’t briefed on the report because “it was unverified.”

Besides, it’s absurd on its face. The Taliban never needed financial inducements to kill Americans! Their radical Islamic creed was enough to cause them to kill “infidels.”

Well, the intelligence community now admits that it has “low confidence” in the accuracy of the report. Translation: It was garbage.

Sadly, it was just another example of the weaponization of our intelligence agencies against Donald Trump and conservatives.

This is a serious problem. We need strong surveillance of our enemies. But the left and its Deep State allies seem to think that conservatives are the enemy!

Remember the dozens of so-called “intelligence experts” who all said that the Hunter Biden laptop story was “Russian disinformation”? NPR and the social media tech giants used that claim to shut down the story. Well, they were wrong!

Over the years, I have developed strong relationships with the leaders of pro-defense, national security groups. I am taking the initiative to reach out to them to develop strategies for exposing corruption and political abuses within our intelligence community.

Silencing the Truth

The Big Tech leftists are once again doing the bidding of their left-wing allies in Big Government. When the New York Post did some real journalism and exposed the sudden riches of a Marxist Black Lives Matter leader, Facebook banned the story, making it impossible to share.

When Project Veritas and James O'Keefe did some real journalism and exposed a CNN director talking about how CNN manipulates the news, targets conservatives, and spreads “propaganda,” Twitter banned O'Keefe.

My friends, this is censorship plain and simple. Big Tech leftists are working with Big Government leftists to silence conservative speech and opinions, to hide the truth, and to protect their left-wing friends.

As I noted above, they did it repeatedly during the campaign and it had a major impact. Big Tech interfered in our election, and it is restricting our freedoms today.

Another Race Hoax

Another way the left is silencing speech is by weaponizing race. If you’re pro-life, you’re racist. If you support voter ID laws, you’re racist. If you believe in border security, you’re racist. The left has weaponized race to shut down debate because no decent person wants to be called a racist.

One result is that we have seen an epidemic of fake hate crimes in recent years. The most notable was the case of Jussie Smollett. But this is a real and dangerous phenomenon in the educational system, which is firmly in the grip of the left.

Friday morning, I watched as Avery Severson described the shocking ordeal she experienced after trying to form a conservative student group at her high school.

As she got close to meeting the school’s requirements, rumors began spreading that Severson was sending racist messages to a black student. Black students and some teachers staged a walkout in protest.

Local police began investigating. The FBI was brought in. The atmosphere was so tense that Severson had to be escorted between classes for her own safety.

Eventually, it was proven that Severson never sent the messages. She was innocent. The whole thing was a hoax. But the school launched a coverup, telling Severson she couldn’t talk about the case. It wasn’t clear from her interview if anyone was ever held accountable.

This is beyond despicable! Just imagine what her life must have been like. How many of her friends turned on her and abandoned her?

If you have a child or grandchild who is well-grounded in the conservative Christian worldview, encourage them to form a Christian student club or conservative student club at their school. Sooner or later, they’re going to have to learn how to defend their values. If your child is involved in a such school club, drop us a note about their experiences.

  • Republican state attorneys general are stepping up legal challenges to the Biden administration’s overreach.

  • A new poll by liberal media outlets finds overwhelming public opposition to woke corporations and sports teams attempting to dictate cultural and political values.

  • Dozens of conservative organizations, including my public policy group American Values, have signed a public statement pledging to refuse corporate contributions from biased Big Tech companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter. We will not be bribed by Big Tech to surrender our liberties!
