This is what the speech of a tyrant sounds like. Mandates. Privacy violations. Consolidation of power. Theft by taxation. Put your faith in government and you’ll end up a slave. whitehouse.gov/briefing-room…

Defund NPR.
The source for this is from the man’s obituary. NPR could not reach the man’s family to verify the claim independently. At least one hospital seems to dispute that he was transferred because of space issues.

We no longer have wars to fund. Taxes should be lowered for everyone. The government was meant to be weak to protect the rights of individuals.
Look, I don’t want to punish anyone’s success, but the wealthy have been getting a free ride at the expense of the middle class for too long. I intend to pass one of the biggest middle class tax cuts ever — paid for by making those at the top pay their fair share.

It appears that that when you attempt to limit speech, you also undermine your own credibility.
Have we **really** digested this:

Great idea. Then maybe we’ll wake up and use our people power to get you out of the way.
Right now, local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic while their governor picks a fight with them and even threatens their salary and job. If they will not help us beat the pandemic, I will use my powers as president to get them out of the way.

Policies of control are typically used by weak leaders propping up weak ideas.

The problem with the way Internet platforms combat "misinformation" is they assume audiences can't handle nuanced truths, so they end up erring on the side of massive black/white generalizations - which only makes audiences more distrustful and susceptible to misinformation.

Modern day King Herod using the full force of the government to kill babies.
The Supreme Court's overnight ruling is an unprecedented assault on constitutional rights and requires an immediate response. We will launch a whole-of-government effort to respond, looking at what steps we can take to ensure that Texans have access to safe and legal abortions.

If you follow the goings on of American higher education, you can become numb to the nonsense and the nihilism. But what is happening at Princeton right now--especially to Professor Joshua Katz--is just madness. nypost.com/2021/09/01/profs-…

California is a TERRIBLE place for poor people. It has high unemployment and poverty rates. But that doesn’t seem to worry the @JoeBiden Administration. They want to make the whole country like California:

So now the bumbling idiots who presided over the Afghanistan disaster will also determine what we can say and whom we can disagree with?
Roughly half of U.S. adults (48%) now say the government should take steps to restrict false information online, even if it means losing some freedom to access and publish content. That is up from 39% in 2018. pewresearch.org/fact-tank/20…

An extraordinary and moving speech from veteran MP Tom Tugendhat, with very harsh words for President Biden on Afghanistan “To see their commander in chief call into question the courage of men I fought with, is shameful.”

The fruits of a horribly misguided ideology.
The US could indeed "go out and collect" our people in Kabul, but this requires using military force or at least threatening it. The option is there; but Biden officials, for ideological reasons, have decided it is not an option.

This isn’t just the Fall of Kabul. The entire leadership of the US govt disappeared today. A thousand narratives collapsed in realtime. DC theater gave way to reality. A generation of people around the world watched as the US govt was humiliated.
