Joe Biden Has Given Democrats More Power to Harass Political Enemies

Tucker Carlson, Fox News, January 13, 2022

There was a lot going on right around the time of the last presidential inauguration, so you may have missed that on his very first day as president, Joe Biden ordered federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to prepare a review of how the administration should fight terrorism. By last June, that report was complete. It concluded that after more than 20 years, Islamic terror is no longer the greatest threat to this country. Instead, the agency declared that domestic political extremism is “the most urgent terrorism threat the United States faces today.”

That’s a very stark assessment, so you have to ask, who exactly are these terrorists who threaten us so urgently? And they’re not what you might expect. The report did not even mention the BLM riots, the deadly BLM riots that had just taken place. There wasn’t a word about Antifa. There was nothing about the gunmen who murdered 800 Americans in the city of Chicago last year, many of them children.

Instead, the Biden administration declared that the “most lethal elements” of today’s domestic terror threat are political conservatives. There are people who disagree with Joe Biden. Now that report was released almost exactly six months ago. Six months ago this Friday. It received relatively little attention and hasn’t since. And no major news organization even asked the most obvious question: These terrorists who threaten us, where are they? If Trump voters are really the most “lethal threat” our country faces today, where are all the people they’ve killed?

That’s not an easy question to answer. Just look at the numbers, which are fairly tightly kept. Take a look at all the Americans who died from violence over the past 12 months, and there are many thousands and thousands of Americans. Ask a simple question: How many of them were killed by right-wingers for political reasons? Not many.


You may remember this story this fall about a group called the National School Boards Association, which sent a letter to the feds asking the DOJ to take a look at parents who don’t like their kids’ curriculums. Well, the Justice Department responded immediately to the letter. Talk about customer service.

Days later, the attorney general announced the FBI would investigate moms who dared to complain that school board meetings as potential terrorists. Many people were shocked by this story, but we just learned it’s worse even than we thought it was.

A new Freedom of Information Act request has revealed that the National School Boards Association asked the feds to investigate parents because the feds asked them to ask the feds to investigate parents. See how that works?

Apparently, the Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, told school board administrators to write their letter to the White House. The White House then used that letter as a pretext to begin a crackdown on parents. See how that works? The snake eating its tail.

When you don’t have enough domestic terrorists to justify a political purge, then you just go ahead and create them, and that’s exactly what they’ve been doing. This week, the campaign against this new American al Qaeda entered a new and very ominous phase, again little noticed by the national media. This Tuesday, two days ago, the DOJ announced the creation of a new domestic terrorism unit. What will it do? Well, it’ll target “anti-authority ideologues.”


Just today on MSNBC, Jason Johnson, one of its contributors, described the entire Republican Party as a terrorist organization. So you can see where this is going. Again, and we’re quoting now, this is the assistant attorney general, “We have seen a growing threat from those who subscribe to anti-government and anti-authority ideologies.”


{snip} So the question is: What exactly are they investigating if there’s no substantial death toll from these terrorists in our midst? What exactly are the feds looking into?

Well, they’re taking a close look at crimes like the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a plot that helped her political fortunes considerably. What did it consist of? Well, that conspiracy turned out to have more FBI agents and informants involved than would-be kidnappers. The guy the feds said was running it turned out to be homeless. He was living in the basement of a vacuum repair shop. His friends called him Captain Autism, and they called him that for a reason. He wasn’t the ringleader of anything. He couldn’t have been. The whole thing was ridiculous, but it stoked the storyline that was politically expedient, and so the media uncritically promoted it again and again as if it were real.


And just to make certain you do keep them to yourself or are unable to share them with anyone else, today, Joe Biden also announced a crackdown on the news media. As he put it, a crackdown on anyone who spreads “disinformation” and “misinformation” about his government.

PRESIDENT BIDEN: If you haven’t gotten vaccinated, do it. Personal choice impacts us, all our hospitals, our countries. I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets. Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows. It has to stop. 


So that means that Big Tech and media organizations have to do what he says, just like his vaccine mandate, found unconstitutional today, by the way. It’ll still be enforced because big businesses rely on the government to exist. They take government money, they’re regulated from the very top to the very bottom by the government.

So it takes a lot to defy the president of the United States. If he tells you to do something, you’d better do it. What Joe Biden is telling media companies to do today is to censor their content so it doesn’t contradict his decrees.


Under the First Amendment, the government cannot coordinate with private actors to censor free speech. Period. Supreme Court has made that very clear over centuries. And yet that’s exactly what’s happening. Joe Biden did it today. Care to complain about that? Probably not. You may have noticed what happens to people who complain too much.
