When I first got to Washington over thirty years ago I walked all over town pretty much unmolested by the state. When I moved back to the area in 2016 I noticed something, especially on North Capitol Street on the way to the Hill. On top of every building there was a surveillance camera.
A lot of it was the product of 9-11. Probably some of it was due to the Patriot Act. You learn to sneer at the cameras, but not to notice it. Now the Biden administration wants to increase that surveillance to the point that intelligence agencies usually tasked with foreign operations would be taking part in domestic surveillance. This is patently wrong. Rep. Chris Stewart, Republican of Utah, is not happy with Biden’s plan.
Stewart: “The Obama administration’s well-documented weaponization of intelligence agencies against an opposing campaign in 2016 was both unprecedented and un-American. But what we’re now hearing from the Biden administration has the potential to make Obama’s abuses look like child’s play. With the White House now suggesting they will turn the resources of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) inward to conduct domestic surveillance, they seek the power to covertly target and retaliate against political opponents, potentially silencing dissent.” We are talking about a full bore surveillance state in the hands of Democrats. What could go wrong?
Surveillance of political opponents by weaponizing the intelligence agencies. It doesn’t get more crooked than that. Watergate is a mere puddle compared to the ocean of deceit in this.https://t.co/HsYiwt6cnY

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
