If you haven’t followed the news closely then you might very well have no idea about the facts of the greatest scandal in American history. That’s no exaggeration. And it’s hiding in plain sight. There is so much news about this, but you will never find it on 90% of news networks. NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CBS, CNN are all devoted to unyielding censorship. Yet the facts are all there. One of the best syntheses of this case is in this documentary. If you are unfamiliar with the case then I highly recommend this documentary. There are tons of articles that you could read, but if you have Amazon Prime then I encourage you to watch this video.
Because of the Democratic Party, unprecedented corruption has infected our intelligence agencies such as the CIA and FBI. It’s worse than you think. This isn’t hype.
This was before the recent scandal about Hunter Biden’s hard drive. A few things stand out. It’s totally consistent with what has been said all along. And what most stands out is the media’s protection of the Biden family by not even acknowledging the story. The major networks just tell their folks, “Nothing to see here. Move Along!”
I just picked this book up today and it’s spot on. I highly recommend it. I will follow up later with some thoughts.
Here’s the book sleeve synopsis:
For years, émigrés from the former Soviet bloc have been telling Rod Dreher they see telltale signs of “soft” totalitarianism cropping up in America–something more Brave New World than Nineteen Eighty-Four. Identity politics are beginning to encroach on every aspect of life. Civil liberties are increasingly seen as a threat to “safety”. Progressives marginalize conservative, traditional Christians, and other dissenters. Technology and consumerism hasten the possibility of a corporate surveillance state. And the pandemic, having put millions out of work, leaves our country especially vulnerable to demagogic manipulation.
In Live Not By Lies, Dreher amplifies the alarm sounded by the brave men and women who fought totalitarianism. He explains how the totalitarianism facing us today is based less on overt violence and more on psychological manipulation. He tells the stories of modern-day dissidents–clergy, laity, martyrs, and confessors from the Soviet Union and the captive nations of Europe–who offer practical advice for how to identify and resist totalitarianism in our time. Following the model offered by a prophetic World War II-era pastor who prepared believers in his Eastern European to endure the coming of communism, Live Not By Lies teaches American Christians a method for resistance: • SEE: Acknowledge the reality of the situation. • JUDGE: Assess reality in the light of what we as Christians know to be true. • ACT: Take action to protect truth.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn famously said that one of the biggest mistakes people make is assuming totalitarianism can’t happen in their country. Many American Christians are making that mistake today, sleepwalking through the erosion of our freedoms. Live Not By Lies will wake them and equip them for the long resistance.
