Joe Biden’s “address to the nation,” delivered September 1, 2022, was one of the most illuminating—as in revealing—speeches ever given by a president since Lincoln’s speech in which he falsely declared that the Union preceded and created the states. Biden’s speech, as in Lincoln’s speech, was full of emotion and ideological passion, supported by a fawning press but totally absent of historical truth and civility and uncompromising toward his political enemies. Anyone who questioned or opposed either man was guilty of treason. They were un-American and worthy of extermination—otherwise, the nation would not survive. The optics of the setting for Biden’s speech were well thought out, and executed.
The site chosen for Biden’s speech was Philadelphia, the center of the American Revolution—a leftist authoritarian revolution being the undertone for Biden’s speech. The optics were obvious. A dark satanic setting with dark red background flanked by two symbols of his military might. It was visual propaganda at its finest. His visual propagandists were as attuned to the subliminal psychology of the masses as was Albert Speer, who designed Hitler’s Nuremberg Nazi Party rallies from 1934 to 1938. Albert Speer’s visual propaganda included using 151 search-lights to generate “a cathedral of ice.” The intention of both Hitler’s and Biden’s propagandists was to visually and subliminally energize supporters while intimidating opponents.
What kind of America did Biden promote from his satanic cathedral of ice? He spoke as an authoritarian. He spoke as one imbued with ideological truth so great that all who opposed such “truth” immediately became social and political outcasts—enemies of the state. Authoritarians do not tolerate dissent. They seek to intimidate indirectly through threats and directly via the machinery of authoritarian government. Hitler had his Gestapo, Stalin had his KGB, and Biden has 87,000 new and well-armed IRS agents, the FBI, and the Department of Justice. Biden, his political comrades, and the neo-Marxist media are the controlling elements of America’s ruling elites. They are our “Glorious Leaders.” But what does that make “we the people?” If you are afraid to speak or write your opinion about the Glorious Leader openly, then you are no longer free. If the Glorious Leader can declare a national emergency, suspend the Constitution, and prohibit public worship, then we are no longer a free people. If our Glorious Leaders can pass voluminous laws that “we the people” cannot read and understand, then we are no longer free. If the Glorious Leader’s sycophants in the military can purge the nation’s military of all who they think may be a danger to a future leftist military coup, then we are no longer free.
The one positive thing about Biden’s satanic ice cathedral speech is that it makes it very clear to those who will see that in Biden’s America, “we the people” are political slaves. But as Patrick Henry noted, “There are none so blind as those who will not see.” Today, there are “conservatives” who honestly but incorrectly believe that we live in “one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” And they repeat this falsehood time after time without giving it any thought. It has become a vain repetition that enforces the mistaken notion that the current government is the legitimate outgrowth of the one established by our Founding Fathers. It gives the façade of legitimacy to an unconstitutional government. Such falsehoods created a population of pacified, “conservative” political slaves.
Without realizing it, “conservatives” are political slaves. Political slaves in Biden’s America are at “liberty” to follow the dictates of the Woke mobs that control educational institutions, political institutions, and corporate boards. In Biden’s America, political slaves can expect politically correct “justice for all” who dare to openly disagree with Biden’s leftist (actually neo-Marxist) ideology. In Biden’s America, due process is voided anytime a radical feminist claims she was “triggered” by someone advocating for traditional Christian moral values. Political slaves must accept the dictum from the diverse cathedrals of Woke America, proclaiming that transgenderism is a good and morally acceptable alternative for confused teenagers or even pre-teens. Political slaves must refrain from attending school board meetings if they intend to challenge the latest school board-sponsored, politically correct fad. The mainline and digital media will paint any conservative political leader or traditional values spokesperson who dares to challenge our Glorious Leaders’ neo-Marxist ideology with the tar-brush of fascism, racism, or misogyny. As political slaves, “we the people” must hear and obey.
This was not the first time Americans faced the prospect of political slavery. During the Colonial era, patriots such as John Adams warned that his generation was facing “a race of Kings bigoted to the greatest degree to the doctrine of slavery.” He warned that the King and Parliament intended to reduce Americans to political slaves: “there seems to be a direct and formal design on foot, to enslave all America.” Colonial patriot Josiah Quincy, Sr. (1710-1784) would have been shocked to see an American president flanked by his military delivering a harsh and threatening political speech. Quincy warned, “the history of mankind affords no instance of successful and confirmed tyranny, without the aid of military forces.” The Reverend Jonathan Mayhew of Boston’s West Church warned Tory Colonials that “loyalty and slavery are not synonymous.” George Washington foresaw approaching political slavery. In a letter to George William Fairfax in 1774, he wrote that King and Parliament “are endeavoring by every piece of Art and despotism to fix the Shackles of Slavery upon us.” He concluded his letter by noting “the once happy plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves.” Our Founding Fathers understood the inherent danger of political slavery and took the necessary steps to halt approaching tyranny.
What remedy is there for “we the people” who are currently ruled by an all-powerful Federal Government? The current government is controlled by professional politicians, a bureaucratic Deep State, and Globalist elites. It is protected by a postmodern educational system that indoctrinates American students on the virtues of neo-Marxism and the mainline and digital media that serves as the government’s neo-Marxist ministry of propaganda. The current government serves the ruling elites’ interests while “we the people” merely want the government to protect our borders, abstain from endless foreign military adventures, and leave us alone. In short—get off our backs and out of our pockets!
Pacified conservatives think that all can be corrected by simply electing more conservatives. Unfortunately, even when good conservatives are elected, they cannot unseat the unconstitutional system of supreme federalism. Reagan could not do it in two terms as president, and Trump was woefully ineffective in “draining the swamp.” The answer will not come from Washington, DC. If it comes at all, it will originate from the local level. The entire system of unconstitutional supreme federalism must be overturned and replaced with America’s original constitutional system of limited federalism—a truly American system of government in which the Constitution is ultimately enforced not by the Federal Government but by “we the people” via our Sovereign States. It can be done, if we think and act locally while engaging in a strategic effort of irregular political warfare.
