Animal’s Daily Tyranny News

Before we begin, check out the penultimate episode of my latest series over at Glibertarians.

Now then:  Issues & Insights has an interesting take on recent actions by the Biden(‘s handlers) Administration.  Excerpt:

When the Babylon Bee posted a story with the headline “Joe Biden Announces Civil War,” it was intended to be parody. But like much the Bee publishes, it’s painfully close to the truth.

“In a stirring address to the country today, Biden has announced a new Civil War,” the Bee “reported” last week. The site’s masters of lampoon then “quoted” the president saying “we’re gonna force millions of people to get vaccinated against their will,” and in order “to enforce this, we’re just gonna have ourselves a little Civil War.”

Biting humor aside, what Biden actually said when he announced last Thursday that his administration is going to require every employer in the country with 100 or more employees to force their workers to be fully vaccinated “or show a negative test at least once a week” was disturbing. He indicated that he’s going to go beyond the autocratic pen-and-phone methods of the previous Democrat in the White House.

“If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I’ll use my powers as president to get them out of the way,” he said, primarily referring to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who have refused to be bullied by federal pandemic orders.

Later in the day, senior White House adviser Cedric Richmond reiterated the threat, declaring that Biden “will run over” the “governors who stand in the way.” Obviously his handlers, much of his party, and nearly all of the media are in full support of him seizing powers he was never meant to have. 

The article later on mentions a bit run by the Babylon Bee, a (fictional) letter from Britain’s King George III praising Biden’s actions.  It’s an apt comparison.  Biden has more in common with George III than appears at first notice; a quickly declining mental capacity, a thirst for power, and a third- or fourth-rate intellect.

One might argue that Biden, like Trump, is more symptom than cause, and that’s probably accurate.  Old Joe himself was, as stated, never more than a third- or fourth-rate intellect even when he was firmly in charge of his faculties, which he now clearly is not.  Trump certainly was, but his presidency was largely the result of his uncanny ability to articulate the zeitgeist of the time – that a large proportion of voters were fed up with business as usual in the Imperial City.  But where Trump failed was that he badly underestimated the depth and breadth of the Swamp, and largely populated his administration with members of that community.  In the end, that was a big part of his 2020 “loss.”

Biden’s handlers are of the Swamp, and seek to expand the Swamp.  They seek to codify and expand the 2020 voting shenanigans, to hold much of the population under semi-permanent lockdown, and to vastly increase the power of the Imperial City over our lives.

That, True Believers, is the very definition of tyranny.  The next few years will tell the tale.
