Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, Comrades

“Corporate socialism. That’s where we’re headed.”

My uncle Thad saw this all coming 25 years ago, only I didn’t realize it at the time. He would throw that statement out there every time I visited him at the family ranch in Goliad County, Texas, but when I’d ask him to explain exactly what he meant, he’d just go off on a tangent and never come back to it.

Thad was an interesting guy, a really intelligent guy who chose to spend the last 30 years of his life living as a hermit in the ranch house that sat atop a hill. There, he had a 360 degree view of nothing but plowed fields and South Texas brush country filled with huisatche, mesquite and prickly pear cactus as far as the eye could see, which was basically all the way out to Berclair, 7 miles to the East. Thad seldom left that perch during the last quarter century of his life, which meant that anyone who went to visit him had best be prepared to sit at his little kitchen table for about four hours drinking coffee and enjoy a stewed tomato and Miracle Whip sandwich or two with a chaser of Oreo cookies while he told stories.

There were always two or three places during those conversations at which Thad would impart some nugget of wisdom and insight, but you had to be listening closely to catch it – if your attention span wavered during the other 3 hours and 56 minutes of story telling, you might just miss it. So maybe I made that mistake at some point or another when he actually did explain what he meant by “Corporate socialism” – I’ll never know for sure, since Thad passed away about 15 years ago.

But over the past several years I’ve come to realize exactly what he was foreseeing way back in 1995 or so, as the power of multi-national corporations over the lives of ordinary Americans has steadily advanced over time, exploding exponentially over just the last year.

It all started back when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger went to China in 1972, establishing diplomatic relations with that sleeping communist giant for the first time. With that act, whether they understood it at the time or not, Nixon and Kissinger set in motion a long chain of events that has evolved today to the point at which China now essentially runs the U.S. government through the influence of giant multi-national corporations.

It is just a reality today that the entire Democrat Party and a large swath of the GOP are nothing more than wholly-owned subsidiaries of the communist Chinese government. This was the essence of what Donald Trump came into office to fight against, and he had initial success, striking new trade deals, invoking targeted tariffs and using the influence and power of the U.S. government to push back against Chinese hegemony not just in the United States, but all over the globe.

But ultimately, the corporate interests in this country proved too powerful for one man fighting almost alone to overcome. A tariff on China is little more than a tax on gigantic corporations like AT&T, Viacom, Apple, Disney, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Google, Facebook, Twitter, General Motors, Tesla, Ford, the NBA, the NFL, Major League Baseball and on and on and on. You name a major corporation ostensibly based in the United States, and I will show you a corporation whose revenue stream today is highly reliant on the Chinese market. These corporations could not abide any president who threatened to upset their multi-trillion dollar sellout of our country, so they threw in with the Democrats and their never-ending coup d’etat efforts to destroy him.

To the trained eye, this corporate influence is especially visible in our media/entertainment sector. All of your television networks and movie companies are slavishly tied to the Chinese market today, which is why they all slant their fake news and film scripts to include approved messaging of the ChiCom government. Indeed, this is why CNN and MSNBC, despite losing hundreds of millions of dollars every year, can continue to exist as subsidiaries of giant corporations Comcast and AT&T. Sure, they lose money in an isolated sense, but by spreading the ChiCom message to ordinary Americans, they make their parent companies billions in profits that far outweigh their inability to pay their own bills.

Television and film producers happily submit their scripts for careful rewriting by communist Chinese censors in order to have access to the Chinese market. “News” organizations like CNN, MSNBC and the major networks actively censor any reports that might reflect negatively on the ChiCom government.

The social media giants are even more outrageous in their conduct, knowing as they do that the U.S. Justice Department has been completely corrupted at this point and will do nothing to police their monopolistic behavior by enforcing the nation’s anti-trust laws. Thus, we saw the spectacle during the last election campaign of Facebook, Twitter and Google all banding together to actively censor the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, a campaign of outright censorship they continue to this day with zero consequence from anyone in law enforcement.

That act of Soviet-style censorship and history revision was not just an act of partisanship in favor of the Democrats: It was also an act on behalf of China, designed to deny the public accurate information about the Biden family’s illicit dealings with the ChiCom government.

Make no mistake: This is not just limited to the traditional and social media world. Over the past year, multi-national corporations have played a leading role in helping Anthony Fauci and Democrat governors around the country destroy the free-market economy in our country under the rubric of COVID response. Governor Greg Abbott may lift his statewide mask order, but that doesn’t mean you won’t still have to wear your mask to the local Wal-Mart or Target. You can trust these huge corporations to cooperate fully with the Democrats to extend these restrictions on your freedoms for as long as they possibly can, because that’s what the ChiCom government wants to happen to our country. It is incredibly naïve to think otherwise at this point.

These giant corporations beholden to China don’t just lobby congress anymore, they run the place. They actively write the laws and have their lobbyists hand the bills to congressional staffers who are incapable of doing that work anymore, and those staffers then write a one-pager of 5-7 talking points for the members to use to describe what is in the bill. That is exactly how the process works in Washington, DC today, and has for the last 20-25 years or so.

All these hearings held by congressional committees in which corporate leaders are called to testify? They’re nothing more than political Kabuki theater at this point, carried out for public consumption and nothing else. Think about it: When was the last time you saw any action of real consequence come about as a result of one of those hearings?

Hell, Eric Swalwell was revealed to have carried on a years-long affair with a honeypot ChiCom spy in December, and Nancy Pelosi just let him keep his seat on the Homeland Security Committee, with the entire Democrat caucus fiercely defending him against attacks from Republicans. It turns out that having an affair with a Chinese spy is now a badge of honor in the Democrat Party.

And it isn’t limited to Washington. States like Georgia that just experienced a massive degree of fraud in the 2020 election can’t even pass legislation without these giant corporate interests exerting influence to cost them billions of dollars under false pretenses. That’s what happened in the decision by Major League Baseball to cancel the holding of its annual All-Star Game and draft in Atlanta this year. The players, owners and managers didn’t vote to do that: That decision was made by cowardly Commissioner Rob Manfred under tremendous pressure from multi-national corporate interests like Delta Airlines, American Airlines, Coca-Cola, Budweiser and others with huge business interests in China.

Thus, we see this Corporate Socialism now extending its Washington, DC influence into the states. All of it – every bit of it – is designed to protect the priorities of Democrats and RINO Republicans who are in the pockets of the ChiCom government.

So, if you’ve been worried that America was about to become a socialist country as the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration runs rampant over your civil rights as Americans, you need worry no longer, because we are already there.

Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, comrades. Sadly, Uncle Thad was right.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Poland Tames Social Media Giants and China Joe Plans Regulate us all to Death

Lack of Self-Awareness Story of the Year! – This award must go to elephantine former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who said this week that he is “leaving the door open” for a presidential run in 2024:

From the story at Newsmax:

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he isn’t ruling out making another run for president in 2024.

I’ll make my own decision without regard to anybody else who’s running. Whether it’s the president or anybody else,” Christie told The Daily Caller.

Christie ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, but later endorsed Donald Trump.

On Monday, Christie also spoke of 2024 during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt. He was asked if he would rule out a run for the White House if Trump decided to run.

“I would not. No,” Christie said. “I would not rule it out, Hugh.”

[End]

Seriously, I am laughing out loud here.

Christie, who ran a disastrously-failed presidential campaign in 2016, has gone out of his way to disassociate himself from the Trump base of support over the past year. The problem there is that he apparently doesn’t understand that Trump’s support base makes up probably over 80% of the base of support for the entire Republican Party.

So, unless he’s planning on running as a Democrat or the latest sacrificial lamb put up by the Libertarian Party, any real presidential ambitions Christie still had after 2016 ran aground like a beached whale long ago, but he’s apparently too clueless to realize it.

Want to tame the social media giants? Let Poland show you how. – Twitter, Facebook and Google all played huge roles in the past two elections, helping the mainstream media brainwash millions of Americans into voting for Democrats, mainly through massive efforts to censor conservative thought and speech. The U.S. federal government is too paralyzed and – let’s be honest here – paid off by the social media giants to do anything about it, but not the government in Poland, which recently served as a role model of any free nation by taking dramatic action to stop the censorship.

From a story at Newsbusters:

Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro of Poland “announced a legal initiative on Thursday [Dec. 10] aimed at enabling internet users to file complaints against the removal of online posts as well as the creation of a special court for freedom of speech,” according to Poland In.

“Under its provisions, social media services will not be allowed to remove content or block accounts if the content on them does not break Polish law. In the event of removal or blockage, a complaint can be sent to the platform, which will have 24 hours to consider it. Within 48 hours of the decision, the user will be able to file a petition to the court for the return of access. The court will consider complaints within seven days of receipt and the entire process is to be electronic,” Poland In reported.

Not only will users be able to sue Big Tech companies in some instances, but there will reportedly be consequences for Big Tech companies if they do not comply with Poland’s law. “If a special court rules in favour of the plaintiff and the internet service does not obey the ruling it can subject the internet service to a fine of up to PLN 8 million (EUR 1.8 million) imposed by the Office of Electronic Communications,” reported Poland In.

[End]

Congress is too utterly corrupt as an institution to ever be able to take decisive action such as this, so Americans who still value freedom of speech and thought supposedly guaranteed by the Constitution will have to devise other ways of dealing with the issue. Either that, or perhaps move to Poland.

All the ICU’s are overrun! Doctors and nurses don’t have time to event think or take a coffee break due to all the COVID-19 patients! It’s a national emergencyyyyyyyy!!!!! It’s … huh? Oh, um, nevermind:

You could never make this crap up, folks.

Get ready for $5 gasoline and a doubling of your utility bills. – The corrupt news media won’t be honest with you about this, but China Joe Potato Head Biden is quickly assembling a team of advisors who are going to regulate every aspect of your daily lives and massively increase the cost of energy use over the next four years. They will justify it all using the dogma of the Global Church of Climate Change.

From a story at The Hill:

Biden has already drawn in experts with deep government and regulatory backgrounds to head some of his agencies. Many of those who will serve in his White House or broader administration have worked in multiple previous administrations.

They include Gina McCarthy, a former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator responsible for a number of Obama-era rules, who will serve as a domestic climate czar tapped to oversee the numerous departments that will play a hand in addressing Trump’s numerous environmental rollbacks.

There’s also Xavier Becerra, who as California’s attorney general led the fight against Trump’s rollbacks to ObamaCare and if confirmed will head the Department of Health and Human Services.

Michael Regan, Biden’s pick to helm the Environmental Protection Agency, has served as the top environmental regulator for the state of North Carolina for four years and also worked at EPA on its air quality program under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush.

Democrats are pushing Biden to waste no time in beginning a regulatory process that can take years.

“The regulatory agenda is going to be critical — and that has to be an agenda that is aggressive and swift enough to meet the moment,” said Amit Narang, a regulatory policy advocate with Public Citizen, a left-leaning advocacy group.

“In the beginning that’s going to be mostly about dealing with the last-minute Trump actions and seeing how much of that can be blocked right up front at the beginning of the administration,” he said. “The rollbacks that have been on the books longer will take longer to undo, so time is going to be of the essence.

[End]

Here’s a key thing to understand about this coming massive push to further subsidize wind and solar: It serves Biden’s desire to make the U.S. increasingly dependent on and subservient to China. Wind and Solar rely heavily on the use of rare earth minerals that are mainly sourced from China. All those cute solar panels and most of the enormous windmills are manufactured in China. All those promises made by Democrats of millions of “green jobs” coming to America are abject BS – the vast majority of renewables-related jobs are in China and will remain there.

That’s what’s coming in a Biden/Harris administration, mainly because the entire Democrat Party – and many Republican members of congress – is a wholly-owned subsidiary of China.

Have a great day.

That is all.
