Kachelman: A “Stark Warning” of National Calamity
By Jim Hoft December 20, 2021
Guest post by John L. Kachelman, Jr.
The unraveling of the American culture and society is neither a sudden nor unexpected phenomenon. What is witnessed today is the deterioration of our national foundations from folly in the past decades. A horrible reality is now appearing. The representative republic is morphing into a totalitarian state. An arrogant elite is issuing “mandates” that are enforced as legislated laws.
The anecdotal validation of this transition is undeniable. Its comedy and senselessness would be entertaining except for the escalating suffering by those in opposition. Incrementally those who live in denial of this transition are beginning to realize the evil reality. Their denial “such cannot happen in the USA,” is being exposed as unreal.
The explanation as to how and why this transition is occurring is an interesting study and will consume volumes in future historical analysis. The erosion of individuality, the advocacy of excellence and exceptionalism, and the governing by representation will be studied as hallmarks of our “history past.”
Many will read our history in unbelief. They will be perplexed as to why the citizens, of such an amazing nation, would allow such to occur. The readers will be mystified that the governing separation of powers and the checks and balances designed to safeguard our Republic, were so easily circumvented. History will assess a weighted and damning blame to The Legislative Branch for its failure to legislate; to the Judiciary Branch for its failure to adjudicate “blind” justice; and to the Executive Branch for its glaring failure to assure that the laws of the nation (passed by the Legislative Branch and not “mandated” by “pen and phone”) are followed and that the responsibilities of government are fulfilled.
I love the way that past history charts the future and explains the present. It is undeniable. It is ignored. It is reimagined and reinterpreted. But the basic principles and outcomes of history are always the same.
Hannah Arendt is an interesting person. She preferred to describe herself as a “theorist” and not a philosopher. She is embraced by all in the philosophical spectrum. Here is one quote succinctly framing the current thinking in America: The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.
Read it again…why is it that some are so blind, or so accepting, or so insulated from today’s political, moral, religious, and social crises? Arendt answers, “These have lost the ability to discern. They confuse fact with fiction and truth with lies.”
When the ability, or willingness, of the citizens to discern is removed, they become senseless soldiers marching to the messaging of their masters. Two separate groups eventually develop—the RULERS and the RULED. The Rulers masterfully utilize fear to manipulate the Ruled into desired behaviors.
This is the essence of totalitarian governing…the Ruled do not have basic personal rights because the Rulers decided everything for them!
Illustrating this is the amazing announcement that North Korea bans laughing for 11 days during mourning for anniversary of Kim Jong-Il’s death. The North Koreans have been banned from laughing for 11 days as the totalitarian country commemorates the 10-year anniversary of the death of Kim Jong Un’s father and predecessor, Kim Jong Il. “During the mourning period, we must not drink alcohol, laugh or engage in leisure activities,” a resident of the northeastern city of Sinuiju told Radio Free Asia’s Korean Service. Even grocery shopping is banned on the exact day of the elder Kim’s death — December 17.
The average American citizen hears of North Korea’s totalitarian oppression, shrugs and says, “That’s not us. That will never happen here in the ‘home of the free.’” Such is the confession of the controlled citizen. As Arendt observes, these are “people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.”
To validate the erosion of the freedoms once enjoyed by the citizens of the United States of America is the amazing arrogance revealed in the report Fauci Says Not to Go to Christmas Gatherings Where You Don’t Know Everyone’s Vaccination Status .
This is not a single instance in our national devolution. Repeatedly the USA citizen has been “mandated” on what to wear, who can be allowed in schools, what is taught in children’s education, where to go, what to speak, with whom to associate, what to eat, when to assemble for worship, etc. Every detail is “mandated” by the Executive Branch. This unconstitutional action has ignored the Legislative Branch and intimidated the Judicial Branch.
BUT nothing has been done to counter this totalitarian overreach by the government. Why? Because the citizens, elected politicians, and Judges in the USA today are “people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.”
And NOW we are told that the Executive Branch is going to make a national announcement that will further add to the illegitimacy of its totalitarian governing. Tuesday night (21 December 2021) we are told, Joe Biden to Announce New Measures to Combat Omicron, Will Issue “Stark Warning” to the Unvaxxed. The RULER will speak to the RULED!
And what are your thoughts on this development? Oh wait, Arendt offers insight to how your “thoughts” impact your freedom…”The aim of totalitarian education has never been to instill convictions but to destroy the capacity to form any” (1966, The origins of totalitarianism).
And so, prepare yourself to sit and watch the “new measures” that will be forced upon those unwilling to be forced by fear to bow in submission to an illegitimate and unconstitutional Totalitarian!
State lawmakers asked to approve concentration camps for the sick
Plan would have governor identify those to be locked up
By Bob Unruh December 20, 2021
When American mayors, governors and others wanted their populations to submit to COVID-19 lockdown and other orders, they were faced with what they perceived as an obstacle: those individuals who simply would not follow orders.
Now, in the state of New York, a proposal is being prepared for lawmakers to consider that would resolve that dispute.
A plan prefiled for the coming legislature would allow authorities to simply determine who they wanted locked up – and then lock them up.
The idea, cast as a “public health law,” is being prepared for the 2021-2022 legislature.
It would allow the governor or his appointee to decide that anyone who is sick and “may” pose a danger to another, “shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the governor or his or her delegee…”
There wouldn’t be “forced” medication unless a court order allowed that, the proposal finds.
The National Pulse explained the proposed law would allow authorities to “remove and detain cases, contacts, carriers, or anyone suspected of presenting a ‘significant threat to public health.'”
The report explained, “Bill A416 presents a serious risk to the basic liberties of all Americans in the state of New York, including their right to choose whether or not to receive medical treatment and vaccinations related to thus far undetermined contagious diseases.”
Inmates will be taken to “a medical facility or any other [authorities] deem appropriate.”
The report continued, “Though the bill attempts to state that no one shall be held for more than 60 days, the language allows for court orders to waive this maximum detention time. After 60 days, the court is allowed an additional 90 days to consider the detention of an individual, a cycle that can last indefinitely per the opinion of the department.”
Once behind locked doors, the individuals would be forced to “complete an appropriate, prescribed course of treatment, preventive medication or vaccination.”
The proposal is vague, and suggests that its provisions could be used against anyone “the department believes has the capacity to ‘pose a threat in the future, such as those refusing to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.'”
The plan in New York allows roundups of individuals to begin after that a “detention order” is “posted in a conspicuous place.”
Those locked up will be informed that they have a right to a hearing.
And authorities will be required to offer to the prisoner that his or her friends and family be notified of the detention.
Inmates also are required to behave to the satisfaction of authorities.
“A person who is detained in a medical facility, or other appropriate facility or premises, shall not conduct himself or herself in a disorderly manner, and shall not leave or attempt to leave such facility or premises until he or she is discharged …”
Businesses, 27 States to Supreme Court: Strike Down Biden OSHA Vaccine Mandate
KATHERINE HAMILTON 20 Dec 2021
Numerous business groups, organizations, and even 27 states recently filed emergency requests asking the U.S. Supreme Court to resolve the split between federal appeals courts on the legality of President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for businesses with 100-plus employees.
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Monday asked the federal government to respond to each of the petitions by December 30 at 4:00 pm, creating the possibility that the completed applications could be circulated to the other eight justices in time to issue a decision before Christmas.
The applicants are asking the justices for a stay while litigation is ongoing challenging Biden’s coronavirus vaccine mandate, which goes into effect on January 4. The 27 states and several other applicants are additionally requesting their filings be considered a petition for writ of certiorari, meaning they are asking the Supreme Court to take up the case this term.
“In addition and in the alternative, the Court should treat this application as a petition for certiorari before judgment and grant immediate review of the Vaccine Mandate’s legality,” the states’ emergency application reads.
The emergency requests come after the Sixth Circuit on Saturday dissolved a stay of Biden’s vaccine mandate issued by the Fifth Circuit in November. Though the Sixth Circuit has a conservative judge majority 9-7, a three judge panel, including a President Barack Obama appointee and a President George W. Bush appointee with a reputation as a liberal-leaning moderate, voted 2-1, with a President Donald Trump appointee penning the dissent.
Biden’s mandate, issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), is the largest of the president’s five vaccine mandates and impacts 84 million workers.
The applications are In re: MCP No. 165 v. OSHA, Nos. 21A243 through 21A251 (with more applications possibly forthcoming) in the Supreme Court of the United States.
