Foundation Of America

Built on a foundation of free speech, freedom of religion, a free press and the right of peaceful protest…

America’s Foundation Crumbles

The foundation on which America was built is the US Constitution. It “…provides important limitations on the government that protect the fundamental rights of United States citizens” , as the following Whitehouse article points out.

“The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. Empowered with the sovereign authority of the people by the framers and the consent of the legislatures of the States, it is the source of all government powers and provides important limitations on the government that protect the fundamental rights of United States citizens.” ( whitehouse.gov)

The First Amendment

“The First Amendment to the US Constitution protects the freedom of speech, religion and the press. It also protects the right to peaceful protest and to petition the government. The amendment was adopted in 1791 along with nine other amendments that make up the Bill of Rights – a written document protecting civil liberties under US law.

The First Amendment text reads: ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.’

While the First Amendment protected freedoms of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition, subsequent amendments under the Bill of Rights dealt with the protection of other American values including the Second Amendment right to bear arms and the Sixth Amendment right to a trial by jury.” ( history.com)

“Follow The DATA, Follow The Power.”

Free speech is under attack, as the following article explains:

“From the day that I started to write about globalization 45 years ago, my co-author, the late Professor Antony C Sutton, drilled into my brain ‘Follow the money, follow the power.’ This has served me well throughout the years. Today, we must also add, ‘Follow the DATA, follow the power.’ Of course, data is money and it is the addiction of Technocrats everywhere.

Big Tech, which is chock full of hard-core Technocrats, just killed up-and-coming social media power Parler. First its apps were dropped on Android and Apple phones and then Amazon abruptly cancelled its data storage/processing contract and summarily terminated all connections. Gone within hours at the hands of three co-conspirator Big Tech behemoths.

NOW, THAT’S POWER.

Who has the power to censor the President of the United States from communicating with American citizens and then murder a thriving company like Parler at the same time?

Not Nancy Pelosi.
Not Chuck Schumer.
Not Adam Schiff.
Not Antifa.
Not Black Lives Matter.
Not Marxists.
Not Communists.
Not Fascists.
Not the United Nations.
Not Republicans.
Not Anarchists.
Not environmental extremists.
Not the World Health Organization.

So much for who has the power.

You get the point.

It’s Big Tech.” ( technocracy.news)

“De-platforming”

All of Donald Trump’s communication systems were cut off! The President of the United States of America cut off from communicating with his supporters. Facebook, Twitter, Mozilla and his email provider all cut him off.

Within hours, he was “de-platformed” for “wrongthink”!

So much for the First Amendment!

Mozilla Joins Big Tech’s Purge Of Free Speech

“Mozilla, the non-profit company behind Firefox browser, has joined the fight against free speech, motivated by the narrative about what happened at the US Capitol on January 6th. In tandem with other tech giants including Facebook, Twitter and Google, the CEO of Mozilla Mitchell Baker called for ‘more than de-platforming’. The newly defined goals of the company include exposing who advertisers are; and revealing networks of people who are guilty of WRONGTHINK.

The company which claims its ‘core values are openness and inclusion’ is now openly advocating for going beyond ‘de-platforming’.( technocracy.news)

Big Tech Has Proven It’s More Powerful Than Any Government

“With unilateral censorship of a sitting US president, Big Tech has proven it’s more powerful than any government. Big Tech’s moves to muscle President Donald Trump off social media have been heralded by some as victory.

But a corporate-run state with politicians serving as mere figureheads amounts to the very fascism they claim to oppose.

The smug, palpable air of ‘mission accomplished’ emanating from Facebook, Twitter and Google in the weeks after the media called November’s election for Democrat Joe Biden has been hard to ignore. Thanks to an iron grip on the political narrative and the heavy-handed suppression of any influential dissenting voices, these insanely wealthy companies and their partners in the media establishment have managed to successfully upend what was left of the US’ democratic process.

The epic pearl-clutching that followed Wednesday’s march on the Capitol is almost guaranteed to result in further restrictions on online speech — and as many observers noted, that’s just how Big Tech and Big Brother want it. No explanations have been forthcoming as to why the Capitol was largely unguarded during the protests, even though Trump had for weeks been calling on his followers to stage ‘wild’ demonstrations on that day. Nor was it clear why Mayor Muriel Bowser waited so long before sending in police and the military to rein in the chaos.

The stage seemed to have been deliberately set for disaster, just the sort of spectacle a clever Big Business-Big Tech axis needs to terrify the masses into believing a full-on insurrection is afoot.

And should the relationship sour, and politicians want their power back? Big Tech can easily scuttle any legislative attempts to break up its monopoly merely by threatening to expose the secrets of the dozens of government agencies that have their data stored in the cloud. Deplatforming Trump is only the beginning of a megalomaniacal crusade against all those who would question a government by the algorithms, of the algorithms, and for the algorithms.” ( rt.com)

Roadmap For Future Political Censorship

“Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO: ‘We are focused on one account [@realDonaldTrump] right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond the inauguration. So, the focus is certainly on this account [@realDonaldTrump] and how it ties to real world violence. But also, we need to think much longer term around how these dynamics play out over time. I don’t believe this is going away anytime soon. You know, the US is extremely divided. Our platform is showing that every single day.’ Dorsey said that censoring Trump was just the beginning.” ( projectveritas.com)

A Masterclass In Media Control

“Despite the mewling of the spineless American media, the real coup this week wasn’t committed by President Trump’s supporters, but by his opponents.

They’re writing a manual on modern regime change, and it’s ready for export. When President Donald Trump’s supporters forced their way inside the US Capitol on Wednesday, they did not act as a unified force bent on seizing power. Instead they snapped selfies, looted souvenirs, and engaged in petty vandalism… it was soon snuffed out and Congress returned to work that evening to certify Joe Biden’s electoral victory.

Their ringleader even urged them to go home and committed himself to the ‘seamless’ transition of power to Joe Biden. Worst Coup - Ever. Yet politicians on all sides and their enablers in the media swiftly declared it an ‘armed insurrection,’ a ‘coup attempt,’ and an example of ‘domestic terrorism.’ ‘Never Trump’ Republican Kurt Bardella described Wednesday’s events as ‘symbolically worse than Pearl Harbor or 9/11,’ while pundits described the littering and hooliganism as an assault on the ‘temple of our democracy’ – you know, the same temple where respectable politicians vote on which foreign land their young soldiers will die in next.

There’s endless arguments to be made calling out the hypocrisy of America’s elites, who stood idly by as Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters burned and looted the country all summer long, but principles do not matter to these people. Only naked power and the will to wield it. And wield it they did.

As has become abundantly clear since Wednesday, the real coup was not against America’s ruling class, but by them.

Incoming President Joe Biden compared pro-Trump Republicans to Nazis and promised to direct the Justice Department to lead a crackdown on ‘domestic terrorism.’ The equation of Trump supporters to terrorists here is implicit.

As politicians used every tool at their disposal to box Trump in, their allies in Silicon Valley made an unprecedented move. Trump was permanently banned from Twitter, his primary means of communication with the public, while thousands of accounts belonging to his supporters were deleted. The significance of Silicon Valley’s involvement can not be overstated. Big Tech worked hand-in-glove with big government to de-person the president of the United States of America and prevent his supporters from organizing.

Cutting off an opponent’s access to the media is step one in the regime change playbook, and the US government would know, having written several of them.” ( rt.com)

Without Freedom Of Speech, What Is Going To Happen To America?

“It is quite ironic that many of those that are always telling us that we need ‘diversity’ in our society are also some of the strongest voices against a ‘diversity of viewpoints’ on social media.

The founders of this nation wanted to make sure that nobody would ever take the right to freedom of speech away from us, and that is why it was enshrined in the Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, courts have greatly eroded that right over the last several decades, and now we are facing an all-out assault on freedom of speech that is unlike anything that we have ever seen before.

And once freedom of speech is completely gone, all of our other rights will soon follow, because there will no longer be any way to defend them.

The big tech companies don’t want diversity,

…they don’t want competition

…they don’t want dissent.

What they want is complete and total domination.

Ironically, many of those that are doing the censoring have the most offensive and the most dangerous viewpoints of all. Needless to say, if we stay on the path that we are currently on there is no future for America. Without free speech, the system of government that our founders established simply won’t work. What is the point of even having elections if we can only express one point of view?” ( theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

Biden Inauguration: New President Sworn In

“Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th US president, ending one of the most dramatic political transitions in American history. ‘Democracy has prevailed,’ he said after taking the oath of office from Chief Justice John Roberts. Donald Trump - who has not formally conceded the presidency to Mr Biden - snubbed the inauguration ceremony, in a departure from longstanding precedent.

The new president has announced a raft of measures reversing Trump policies. Kamala Harris was sworn in as vice-president ahead of Mr Biden. She is the first woman - and the first black and Asian-American person - to serve in the role, a heartbeat from the presidency.” ( bbc.co.uk)

What Next For America?

“If we continue destroying the US dollar at our current pace, toilet paper will eventually be more valuable than US dollars. I know that sounds absolutely crazy, but it is true. Once the COVID pandemic hit the United States, those that control the levers of power in this country decided to go ‘full Weimar’ and they never looked back. As a result, the size of our money supply is rising at a rate that would have been unimaginable just a few short years ago. M1 was up by more than 50 percent in 2020.

We’ve never had a year like that in all of US history. What we are doing is literally insane… Congress just kept passing ‘stimulus package’ after ‘stimulus package’ in a desperate attempt to ‘rescue’ the economy. But in the process they borrowed and spent trillions of dollars that we did not have, and that also helped to fuel our transition into hyperinflation.” ( theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

The American Empire Has Fallen…

“Wanting to turn back the clock and restore the American Empire to what it was before Donald Trump’s presidency is a fool’s errand. It’s already a thing of the past – and the storming of the US Capitol was just the last straw.

Don’t take my word for it, though. ‘If the post-American era has a start date, it is almost certainly today,’ argued none other than the head of the Council on Foreign Relations – the foremost think tank advocating for the Empire in Washington – after Wednesday’s storming of the Capitol by several hundred Trump supporters protesting the certification of the election for Biden.

‘No one in the world is likely to see, respect, fear, or depend on us in the same way again,’ lamented CFR president Richard Haas.

Basically, the entire US establishment was so consumed by the desire to burn Trump at the proverbial stake, they chopped up the scaffolding that held up the Empire to use as firewood. In a speech recently, Joe Biden vowed to ‘rebuild, reclaim America’s place in the world’ as a country that will ‘champion liberty and democracy once more.’ That’s a daunting task, on par with putting the genie back into the bottle, un-spilling milk, or putting Humpty Dumpty back together again.” ( rt.com)

America “Fundamentally Transformed”

“Although it’s currently experiencing a full frontal attack, for decades the United States of America has been under covert, slow-motion assault by the revolutionary Left, a religious-political movement fundamentally at war with both Christianity and America. From the sexual revolution and the ‘marriage-is-legalized-rape’ radical feminists of the 1960s, to today’s open love affair with socialism, sexual anarchy, abortion, identity politics, radical environmentalism and ‘defunding the police,’ the Left has relentlessly pursued its goal, as Barack Obama put it, of ‘fundamentally transforming the United States of America.’

…As of the end of 2020 the revolutionaries are clearly ascendant.” ( wnd.com)

Democrats Rule!

God warned us that if we would not obey Him, He would … “break the pride of our power” (Leviticus 26:19).

The events of the last few days show one way in which this is happening. As we have witnessed, free speech has been overtaken by “big tech”! When the President of the United States of America can be effectively “de-platformed” for “wrongthink”, cut off from his supporters by just a few individuals, then the very foundation of America is falling apart!

In summary, here are a few quotes from the articles above:

And once freedom of speech is completely gone, all of our other rights will soon follow, because there will no longer be any way to defend them.”

Needless to say, if we stay on the path that we are currently on there is no future for America. Without free speech, the system of government that our founders established simply won’t work.”

What is the point of even having elections if we can only express one point of view?”

No one in the world is likely to see, respect, fear, or depend on us in the same way again.
