THREAD: If you're watching @TuckerCarlson and unfamiliar w the Biden administration's first of its kind National Strategy on Countering Domestic Terrorism and where it fits in the admin's broader War on Wrongthink, I've been covering this vital, disturbing topic for the last year 1/13/21: If you accede to the view that anything that challenges the prevailing progressive orthodoxy constitutes violence, then you will take any means necessary to snuff it out thefederalist.com/2021/01/13/dem…

Vital concluding points in Justice Alito's dissenting opinion on less-discussed, but still critical healthcare workers vax mandate case, with respect to our Leviathan administrative state: "Today’s decision will ripple through administrative agencies’ future decisionmaking..." 1/ "The Exec Branch already touches nearly every aspect of Americans’ lives. In concluding...CMS had good cause to avoid notice-and-comment rulemaking, the Court shifts the presumption against compliance w procedural strictures from the unelected agency to the ppl they regulate." 2/

If we could do it all over again, after 9/11 we would've plotted our response by first studying the enemy and knowing his threat doctrine. Over time, we explicitly forbade that, purging materials that described what jihadists believe, why they believe it thefederalist.com/2021/09/10/wha… Since 9/11 was, on a practical level, an immigration failure, we would've frozen immigration, put in place laws to ensure Islamists and aiders/abettors/enablers couldn't. Instead, since '01 we've imported immigrants from majority-Muslim countries en masse thefederalist.com/2021/09/10/wha…

When it comes to the fast-accelerating calamity in Afghanistan, President Joe Biden is the wrong man, doing the right thing, in the absolute worst way newsweek.com/bidens-afghani… We should have struck AQ and Taliban protectors w such shock & awe that neither would ever dare so much as think to touch an American again. This would have sent a message to Islamic supremacists the world over. Then we should have left newsweek.com/bidens-afghani…

The fact that practically every prominent conservative in the country immediately condemned lawbreakers & called for them to be brought to justice to fullest extent of the law, in contrast with what Democrats did all summer long, shows you the gulf of difference b/t the two sides Other gulf of difference is that while a % of bad actors are being used to smear all MAGA, and will be used to reimpose total establishment/Ruling Class control--w/o consideration for why anger finally boiled over on the right--Dems instead are responsive to their constituents

Don’t know if people are fully grasping what it would mean for US if two GA seats and presidency are gone. It’d be absolutely catastrophic. You can’t undo a mass amnesty, DC & PR statehood, a packed court, and probably couldn’t touch vote integrity evisceration measures either This is to say nothing of lockdowns, enviro-insanity, Big Tech coddling, weaponizing of bureaucracy against dissenters, institutionalization of Wokeism, crippling taxation & bankrupting spending, aiding/abetting/enabling of Communist China in march for hegemony, for starters

Why did the vote counting stop simultaneously, for hours on end, in the middle of election night, in the very decisive swing states where Trump was winning by sizable margins? Why can’t we get straight answers from the officials involved? Why are Democrats so derisive of anyone who dared to submit a sworn affidavit claiming intimidation, obstruction, fraud among poll watchers/challengers—guardians of democracy who ensure voting rights are not violated through suppression or dilution?

MSM outlets running articles conjuring scenarios of Rs trying to steal election/unwillingness of POTUS to accept hypothetical loss are engaging in the ultimate in irresponsible & destructive projection. The rule holds: Ds always accuse Rs of what they are doing/intend to/would do Democrats have become the Party of Conspiracy now, for true believers among them because @realDonaldTrump broke them, and for the cynical narrative spinners because they think Americans are stupid

We don't know close to all the facts about what happened in Kenosha. But once again @JoeBiden--the man who would have ultimate prosecutorial discretion--irresponsibly jumps to conclusion cops acted as they did bc law enforcement is systemically racist. He couldn't help but pander Biden could have said that if the cops failed in their duties or worse, that it is unacceptable and they should be punished to the fullest extent of the law; and at the same time that an act of injustice could not justify a mass of additional unjust acts. He couldn't bc politics

In response to some of my recent articles, I’ve been getting lots of emails asking what ppl can do given the myriad challenges facing us. If you accept premise our institutions have been taken over by those who reject our founding principles and hate our guts, how do we compete? I have many thoughts here, starting from belief each individual putting unique skills/abilities to highest/best use can lead to triumph. It starts w instilling virtue, love of country and its principles in your kids, grandkids, anyone else you can impact. But what’s the big plan?

In last wk we’ve seen a majority R-appointed SCOTUS fail to rule according to Constitution on issue after issue, and an R Sen suggest Ds would run circles around Rs if Rs didn’t engage in debates set by Ds on D terms. Ask yourself: Would Ds ever find themselves in this position? Notice how you’ve never seen Dems resort to that age-old R excuse about how: “We need the White House,” then “We need a House majority,” then “We need a 60-vote Senate majority,” then “We need the SCOTUS?” “Controlled opposition” really is an apt term for far too many of our reps
