We are in the midst of the most dangerous time to liberty since this country was founded. Actually, we have already had more loss of freedom, and more tyranny just this year than has ever happened to the country as a whole.
California, a state that leads in tyrannical behavior by the political class, has taken tyranny to a more ludicrous level. The criminal cretin governor in California is Gavin Newsom, and he is now attempting to mandate all behavior for personal households for Thanksgiving and Christmas. To gain obedience to such draconian and insane rules would be the end of California, but that might be a blessing in disguise, as the west coast is a poster child for dictatorial and control tactics.

The mandatory requirements are listed below, and it is very important to read this asinine compliance section. This is citizen submission training, and it will not be limited to California. Draconian measures such as these and worse will be universal if allowed, and everything being done in these test states like California and New York will come to your city or town soon, just as what is going on in Europe and Australia will as well.…
All over the Western world ever since 9/11 there have been incremental steps towards what many liberty advocates would call a “police state”; a system in which governments are no longer restricted by the boundaries of civil liberties and are given the power to do just about anything they want in the name of public safety. The use of “the law” as a tool for injecting tyranny into a culture is the first tactic of all totalitarians.
The idea is that by simply writing government criminality into the law books, that criminality somehow becomes justified by virtue of legal recognition. It’s all very circular. Whenever government abuse of the people is initiated, it’s always initiated in the name of what’s “best for society as a whole”. To save society, the individuals that make up a society must be sublimated or destroyed. This mentality is the complete opposite of what the Founding Fathers in America fought and died for, but as Thomas Jefferson once said:
“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”…

There’s a pattern emerging if you pay close enough attention.
Civil discontent leads to civil unrest, which leads to protests and counterprotests.
Without fail, what should be an exercise in how to peacefully disagree turns ugly the moment looting, vandalism, violence, intimidation tactics and rioting are introduced into the equation. Instead of restoring order, local police stand down.
Tensions rise, violence escalates, and federal armies move in.
Coincidence? I think not.
This was the blueprint used three years ago in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017, when the city regularly cited as being one of the happiest places in America, became ground zero for a heated war of words—and actions—over racism, “sanitizing history,” extremism (both right and left), political correctness, hate speech, partisan politics, and a growing fear that violent words will end in violent actions.
It was a setup: local police deliberately engineered a situation in which protesters would confront each other, tensions would bubble over, and things would turn just violent enough to call in the bigger guns.
