Writers, of all people, are now censors

They should never call themselves writers again

It had to happen.

People who call themselves WRITERS are signing a letter pressuring publishers to ban Trump, and anyone who has worked for him:

Do not publish a Trump memoir. Stay away from him.

The letter was penned by Barry Lyga. Who?

LA Times, January 15 [1]: “More than 250 authors, editors, agents, professors and others in the American literary community signed an open letter this week opposing any publisher that signs book deals with President Donald Trump or members of his administration.”

“Former DC Comics president Paul Levitz, journalist Sarah Weinman and ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ author Celeste Ng are among signatories to the letter, written by novelist Barry Lyga and titled ‘No Book Deals for Traitors’.”

“’We all love book publishing, but we have to be honest — our country is where it is in part because publishing has chased the money and notoriety of some pretty sketchy people, and has granted those same people both the imprimatur of respectability and a lot of money through sweetheart book deals,’ the letter read. ‘We affirm that participation in the administration of Donald Trump must be considered a uniquely mitigating criterion for publishing houses when considering book deals’.”

“’Consequently, we believe: No participant in an administration that caged children, performed involuntary surgeries on captive women, and scoffed at science as millions were infected with a deadly virus should be enriched by the almost rote largesse of a big book deal. And no one who incited, suborned, instigated, or otherwise supported the January 6, 2021 coup attempt should have their philosophies remunerated and disseminated through our beloved publishing houses’.”

Beloved publishing houses? I’m sure no writer, in the last ten thousand years, has ever used that phrase.

Are the author, and the signers of this letter, down on their knees, looking for their own book deals?

Since the invention of language, writers have fought to win the freedom to WRITE without interference. In the process, they’ve been arrested, charged, prosecuted, convicted, imprisoned, tortured, and murdered. That’s the history of the war.

And now this little venal band of scum—writers—wants censorship.

Here’s a chapter from that history; Giordano Bruno, 16th century Dominican friar, poet, and philosopher. For teaching a theory of reincarnation, for stating the universe was infinite, for discussing the possibility of life on other planets, on February 17, 1600 in the Campo de’ Fiori Square, “field of flowers,” the Roman Church burned him at the stake.

Yes, this happened. It wasn’t a Netflix movie. It was one stop along the way in the war for freedom.

But all right. These contemporary buffoons want to cancel Trump. Fine. Who’s next?

What about beloved Obama? I have evidence to support retroactive censorship against him. All his books, wherever they can be found, should be assembled in a great pile, in Freedom Plaza, and burned.

His publishers should demand the return of all advances and royalties, and if Obama can’t come up with the cash, a court should empower the publishers to take over his homes and sell them off.

The evidence?

The Guardian, January 9, 2017, “America dropped 26,171 bombs in 2016. What a bloody end to Obama’s reign,” by Medea Benjamin [2]:

“…in 2016 alone, the Obama administration dropped at least 26,171 bombs. This means that every day last year, the US military blasted combatants or civilians overseas with 72 bombs; that’s three bombs every hour, 24 hours a day.”

“While most of these air attacks were in Syria and Iraq, US bombs also rained down on people in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. That’s seven majority-Muslim countries.”

“One bombing technique that President Obama championed is drone strikes. As drone-warrior-in-chief, he spread the use of drones outside the declared battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq, mainly to Pakistan and Yemen. Obama authorized over 10 times more drone strikes than George W Bush, and automatically painted all males of military age in these regions as combatants, making them fair game for remote controlled killing.”

“President Obama has claimed that his overseas military adventures are legal under the 2001 and 2003 authorizations for the use of military force passed by Congress to go after al-Qaida. But today’s wars have little or nothing to do with those who attacked the United States on September 11, 2001.”

“Given that drones account for only a small portion of the munitions dropped in the past eight years, the numbers of civilians killed by Obama’s bombs could be in the thousands. But we can’t know for sure as the administration, and the mainstream media, has been virtually silent about the civilian toll of the administration’s failed interventions.”

“In May 2013, I interrupted President Obama during his foreign policy address at the National Defense University. I had just returned from visiting the families of innocent people killed by US drone attacks in Yemen and Pakistan, including the Rehman children who saw their grandmother blown to bits while in the field picking okra.”

“Speaking out on behalf of grieving families whose losses have never been acknowledged by the US government, I asked President Obama to apologize to them. As I was being dragged out, President Obama said: ‘The voice of that woman is worth paying attention to’.”

“Too bad he never did.”

If you petty little band of censors—who call yourselves writers—want to shut down Trump, then you have to go after Obama.

And then GW Bush, and Clinton, and so on. Don’t stop there.

There are lots of American politicians you can assail, going back to the 17th century.

You’re every censor who ever existed. You think you’ve got a special case in Trump. You don’t have a clue.

You don’t know anything about the history of writers.

I wouldn’t trade three dried-out yak turds for one of your books.

But those books won’t be censored. That’s how generous and consoling freedom is. I could say you should try freedom yourselves, but I know better than that.

I see who you are.

Miniature gargoyles, peddling your virtue-signaling inquisition.

Watch Company Pushes Back Against Censorship And Lockdowns With Stirring Ad About Freedom

(Frank Camp) On Friday, a watch company released a video promoting the American ideal of freedom. Egard Watches has generated buzz twice before with its videos — one in response to Gillette’s ad regarding “toxic masculinity” and another defending police officers during the height of the “Defund the Police” movement.

Trump Did Not Concede… Lin Wood Explains “Many Traitors” to Be Arrested Shortly… Final List of Confirmed Traitors Acquired Last Night During Congressional Vote

(Mike Adams) Following yesterday’s false flag “storming” of the Capitol Building — staged by left-wing Antifa / BLM instigators who dressed up as MAGA supporters — we witnessed the final act of betrayal against our constitutional republic as members of Congress flipped against truth and voted to accept the fraudulent Biden electors, making Joe Biden the “president-elect.”

To the people of lockdown California: it’s jailbreak time

by Jon Rappoport

First, a bit of background.

Your governor, Gavin Newsom, is a predator, but within the context of a failed state.

For decades, the government of California has been underwater. As of five or six years ago, it was on the hook for future unfunded liabilities of a quarter of trillion dollars.

That debt was handled by issuing bonds. That’s always the response. Who underwrites those bonds? NY investment houses like Goldman Sachs. They’re satisfied as long as California keeps pulling in taxes and paying down the interest on those bond loans.

But now the tax base of California is rapidly shrinking, owing to the lockdowns, and businesses packing up and leaving the state.

So Newsom is in the position of a small grocery store owner who, failing to pay his protection money to the mafia, is forced to give his store to the mob and work for them…

That’s a bit of context. Newsom is in prison and he wants everyone else to be in prison, too.

Now let’s dig in—

In case you hadn’t noticed, Governor’s Newsom’s brutal lockdowns have done nothing to stem the raging tide of COVID case numbers.

Of course, those numbers are fake, owing to intentionally rigged flaws in the PCR test, but we’ll leave that aside for now.

The point is, lockdowns are meaningless—except they devastate your lives.

Newsom is seeing the handwriting on the wall. He’s never going to become president of the United States. That was his cherished goal. He’s spent years developing his image and persona as “the open, honest, articulate, caring junior JFK in the making.” That’s all gone.

He’s now the punisher who steps out on his own lockdowns and has dinner indoors at a high-priced eatery, unmasked, with a dozen friends.

He follows in the footsteps of other Democrats who thought they could play JFK: Gary Hart, John Kerry, Ed Markey, Jerry Brown. They all went down.

But Newsom isn’t going to back off his COVID lockdowns.

The whole state of California is dry tinder, on the verge of exploding. I’m not talking about forest fires. I’m referring to millions of you who are ready to step outside your homes and re-open the economy, no matter what.

The knowledge is seeping in: if enough of you rebel against the governor’s imprisonment dictates, there is nothing he can do about it.

He’ll look like the fool and the deranged fascist he is, behind his carefully crafted disguise.

And I’m here to reassure you the COVID fear porn is just that; it’s not real; never was; never will be. But you’ve already figured that out, right? You’re in jail because Newsom and the layers of Globalist operators behind him want you in jail. It’s simple.

So admit what you know to be true. Face up to it.

Stop worshiping the preposterous virus.

I lived in California for 50 years. I know the liberal mindset forwards and backwards. I’ve seen all the variations of virtue signaling. I understand how those fetishes stand up as long as the money holds out. But when the money vanishes and the business vanishes, and whole economy is wrecked and lying in ruins, you start to come to your senses.

Supporting BLM, Antifa, riots and looting, open borders? New Age jive? The hell with all that. You’re secretly looking to rough and ready bar owners, who are defying the cops and trying to stay open. You’re looking at your own dwindling bank accounts. You’re measuring martyrdom against rebellion.

You’re part of the dry tinder, ready to explode.

So DO IT.

The history of California is a history of war and crime. Once upon a time, Spanish conquistadors smashed the indigenous people of Mexico and extended their reach into California. VERY wealthy Spanish families owned huge swaths of land from Tijuana all the way to Santa Barbara and beyond. They also owned off-shore islands.

Gradually, the criminal California and federal governments moved in on these criminal Spanish families, and in partnership with criminal American financiers and developers, took over that land.

Eventually, a movement arose to open the California-Mexico border. This wasn’t meant as a compensation to the indigenous Mexican people. It was an entry corridor for the descendants of the Spanish conquistadores.

And, of course, for major drug cartels. Hollywood, the entertainment industry, was an open target for laundering cocaine and heroin cash. Production companies and movie studios on the brink of collapse suddenly got well.

I sketch out these bits of hidden history to show you that California is far from a share-and-care liberal fortress. California has always been a long con and long hustle and a long war.

And now, that war has come home to you.

So fight it.

Offload the dream that your governor and you are partners in an unprecedented liberal revolution for The Good. Newsom is just another player in a long line of players who have sold what remained of their souls to bigger money bosses.

The Good is not dead. You just have to rethink it. You have to put FREEDOM at the top of the page, and realize what that struggle of centuries means. You’re now in unique position to understand, because you’re under house arrest, at the whim of your leader.

It’s jailbreak time for you.

FORCE THE ECONOMY OPEN.

Rebellion rising; the people have had enough

Signs of the times—

Large anti-lockdown protests are sweeping across Europe. Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the UK, Poland. The media are trying to put a lid on coverage of these momentous events.

In Southern California, five sheriffs of populous counties (17 million people) are refusing to enforce Governor Newsom’s new curfew order. A petition to recall the governor is gaining steam.

In New York, members of the Chasidic sect held a wedding attended by several thousand people, sitting closely packed without masks.

In a more intimate setting, up close and powerfully personal, gym members and owners in Buffalo, New York, shouted down cops and a public health officer, who had entered the gym because the gathering exceeded the prescribed limit. The gym personnel drove out the cops and followed them, to make sure they left the property.

In Buffalo, protestors came to the house of Erie County Executive, Mark Poloncarz, to express their anger at new lockdown restrictions. The protest was also aimed at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Sheriffs in Fulton and Erie Counties (New York) are refusing to enforce Thanksgiving lockdowns which limit the number of people in private homes.

In various areas of England, police have warned government officials they’re “sitting on a time bomb,” because lockdown rules make it illegal for two or more families to gather together for Christmas—and law-enforcement personnel are permitted to invade homes where violations are occurring. The time bomb is, of course, huge numbers of outraged citizens.

In Australia, Qantas airline CEO Alan Joyce announced that travelers will be able to fly only after receiving the COVID vaccine, once it is approved. Soon afterwards, Joyce stood at a podium at an event to give a speech, and a grizzled Aussie walked up to him and shoved a pie in his face.

Two women saw New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy eating dinner at a restaurant with his family. He was maskless. “You’re such a dick!” one woman told him. Murphy has just extended his state’s lockdown, the ninth time he has done so since March. At his dinner table, Murphy tried to remain calm. He put on his mask.

Andrew Kudrick, the police chief of Howell Township in New Jersey, says he won’t enforce the governor’s “draconian” limit of 10 people for Thanksgiving dinners.

The CDC has told Americans to stay home for Thanksgiving. Last weekend, two million Americans boarded flights.

In a form of silent protest, 300,000 residents of New York have left the city since pandemic restrictions began.

It should be noted that, among the several hundred thousand (or more) Trump supporters who gathered in Washington DC, at a Stop The Steal rally, few people wore masks, and no one paid attention to social distancing regulations.

Across America, without fanfare, pockets of the economy are wide open—no masks, no distancing, no one is paying attention to government regulations.

The walls of lockdown fascism are cracking, in large ways and small. Actually, there is no small. Every act inspired by the fire of freedom counts.
