The Thirst For Truth – Big Picture Explanation
of What Happened in the Past 15 Years
That Flipped the Social, Cultural, Media,
Leftist and Govt Relationship

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 5/27/2023 3:45:33 PM

Last night I participated in a conversation. This article is written as an outcome of that conversation, as requested by those who participated. (snip) In various forms they were asking each other the same question. What happened in the last several years that caused Democrats, leftists and the traditional political left to switch positions on their advocacy? Liberalism literally went from railing against Big Govt, to embracing corrupt Big Govt. Why and how did this happen? In short, it was the same line of questioning I have seen asked by Tucker Carlson, Glenn Greenwald, Tulsi Gabbard and various traditionally liberal people as well as people on the right side of the continuum.


The answer to why? is a photo. Choom Gang Barack, looking smug...

THEN along came the Clintons with Albore, the Obama's, and the Biden's. Hillary announced that she is a Progressive which is another name for Communist. The feared Communist Party infiltrated every government institution and surprise, they took over. They are now welcomed in Congress and in the WH. What else can we expect. The best way to destroy a country is to destroy its culture and morals. The destruction is slow but sure and the people don't even realize what is happening. They are having too much fun being immoral and free. They don't realize that freedom comes with a price. Look what happened in Germany. 'nuff said.

Agree 100%. The Leftists never changed, but they went from being an outside fringe to being in power. And now that they are there, they are destroying and corrupting everything they can get their grubby mitts on.

"Starting in January of 2009, the activists took power over the United States government, and every outside institution, including media, necessarily and ideologically followed that inversion." Beginning then, the POTUS was a shape shifting demon who leveraged the power of a dirty Justice Dept. and then the ignorance of an emerging generation of idiots. That is how you get to, 10 puny years later, the inability to tell a literal man from a literal woman even when all one has to do it look down your own pants. Only now, do the sophist liberals understand: it is alot harder to reestablish rational thought than it is to forgo it. Which was their bread and butter.

When I started reading the article I expected some new revelation that I had not yet considered. However, it was the reasons that most of understand who have been paying attention. The abandonment of God as the authority figure in our lives, which naturally brought about the acceptance of “if it feels good, do it” morality that not only expressed itself sexually but in other aspects of our lives, truthfulness, “greed is good”, corruption, language, and at the beginning quiet indoctrination of all things progressive. We are now being screamed at to conform or suffer the consequences. Frankly, the radicals in government saw the time was right and took full advantage. Obama was the outward sign that things were going to drastically change in the country. In fact, “the one we had been waiting for” said it out loud. The country would be fundamentally transformed. With media’s full support, the game was afoot and far too many were asleep or just didn’t care about politics. Ignorance and apathy had set in and Americans were oblivious to the freight train bearing down on us. Now many of us realize we are in the fight of our lives. It is to defeat the heinous Marxist philosophy that has murdered hundreds of millions in order to enslave others or will we submit because that path is, in the short term, much easier. The long term? It is infinitely fraught with danger and will end in massive deaths like it always does. We are looking at complete chaos and mayhem if we choose to fight and should we win, the leftists will melt down in such a violent manner that it may actually start a civil war. Don’t believe these people can be reasoned with, they cannot. If we are honest, the future looks grim and it will likely get far worse. You will pay a price for your convictions be they secular or religious. They will came after each group that opposes them. Be prepared to suffer for your faith or worse because it will come to that. Evil has been with us since the Garden of Eden but only Jesus Christ will claim the final victory. Christians: (11) “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (12) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” ~ Ephesians 6: 11, 12

By bastardizing “the vote” as the radicals have, We the People have no recourse to throw the radicals out of power. They made sure of that with the advent of Dominion, Smartmatic and the co-option of the vote via COVID. This removal of accountability is a key element to understand why we are in grave danger in America. The Powers that Be all love the fact that they are beholden to anyone but themselves and the #JihadJunta (Bammy’s Cabal…) Make no mistake, Obama is the tool, the Brain trust is much much higher than him. My fear is that the Vaccine, and the threat of an “even deadlier” pandemic to come is this: biological warfare to eliminate Patriots and all who oppose this evil Junta.

I read the entire piece. Lays it out there. The story headline, the pics of Obie, and the first comment that follows the article sum it up as to who and what has been behind this attempted takeover of America. It should not be a secret anymore as to why Obie has remained in DC all these years to complete the transformation. Never forget who mentored Obie during his youth - a card-carrying communist - Frank Marshall Davis. And Obie's close friendship with Saul Alinsky. The spiritual decline that #12 points out defines the new Amerika. I have commented many times here on L.Com that slowly but surely, belief in our Creator is being replaced with obeyance to an evil deep state. Obie and Bush senior were very clear that we are in need of a new world order. Fast forward to today. How did we get here? Rather simple - due to an ignorant, apathetic and increasingly secular citizenry. A citizenry who never had it so good. Where to from here? Our choices? Do nothing and accept our fate and miserable lives. Or we fight and eliminate this leftist movement. Peacefully? I pray to God and hope so. Violently? I pray to God and....

Here's a slightly different take: In the throes of civil rights marches, national calamities, and Vietnam protests professional journalism drastically changed in the late 1960s. Rather than simply reporting the who, what, where, when, and how of an event, journalists began adding the WHY. They claimed they did this for a noble cause---ostensibly to give "a voice" to the under-represented little guy. The end result of that was journalistic OPINION quietly became "news." Couple that with the fact that when CNN launched in 1980, it provided us with our first ever around-the-clock news. They, too, were committed to speaking for those without a voice. But when a minority opinion is presented over and over, day after day it soon sounds like it's the majority opinion. And the end result of that is that we've been served DISTORTED news ever since. If we really want to find the origin of our current problems we have to go back to the 60s when the journalists began reporting their opinions as news and we let them get away with it. They've had a good run, but maybe they're done and we can stick a fork in them. Tech savvy conservatives have signaled they're gonna sidestep the traditional media by using Twitter to discuss events or make announcements and simply not inviting Wolf Blitzer to their events. Gotta love that!

Every, single post on this thread makes a valuable point. I can clearly see where we are headed, but I simply cannot give in to the doomed aspect. I can’t. Yes, we are up against the army of Satan, but I refuse to believe that every, single person in a position of influence is evil. I know it looks that way. I know it. But, many are too frightened or intimidated to stand against. That’s why we need bold leaders. Those who do not go along to get along. Those who are unafraid, as we must be unafraid, even in the face of unimaginable malevolence. We must remember that these people are not God, nor are they gods. All powerful regimes fall. They will miscalculate. The power of the human spirit to survive is an uncontrollable and undefinable thing. Keep your eyes on God and keep fighting. No matter what.

I read Judge Robert Bork's "Slouching Towards Gomorrah" when it was first published in 1996, and am re-reading it. As some have noted, Obama came along at just the right time and any criticism of him was "racist." As Judge Bork painstakingly lays it out, changes in our society have been taking place over time, bit by bit, until we are finally waking up and asking "How did this happen?" His book is as fresh and current as the day it came out. A MUST READ! We have to know our history!

I agree for the most part with Sundance, but in Sept. 2008, we had the financial meltdown, which I will always believe was orchestrated by democrats to crush any chance Sarah Palin had given McCain. (Not that McCain was any prize.) So, we already had activist infiltrators in positions of power, but Obama cemented them and empowered them further. One of my main concerns is that the people coming of age now will think it has always been this way, and our educational system will not tell them the truth. Our justice system alone has been so "flipped" that we may never see real justice again. Obama and Biden must be exposed and figuratively demolished so the world can see America is that "Shining City on a Hill" again. I believe Donald J. Trump is the only answer, and he must have a loyal staff to help him accomplish this unbelievably complex and difficult task. They will not go quietly.

I would like to add to the great thoughts posted that I remember a chilling remark that Mr. Hussein Obama said right before he was sworn into office. He said he was days before (taking office) that this country would be "fundamentally changed". Now we know what he meant. You don't change a country you love and fundamentally change it! From freedom to communist slavery. Little did we know, Mr. Hussein Obama would infect every department in our government, including the military with his Marxist/Socialist/Communist ideology and trash our beloved U.S. Constitution with his constant attacks. Yes, I can safety say Mr. Barrack Hussein Obama is the worst president in our nation's history. And because of widespread corruption throughout our government and our country (and churches), maybe it's time for the Lord to do some housecleaning. I know the righteous will suffer along with the wicked, but 2 Chronicles 7:14, if the people who are called by God's name humble themselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways, then God will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and restore their land. if My People will humble themselves and pray and turn from their

Within days of the story’s publication, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton launched an official investigation, saying that “children are not to be treated as science experiments.” And state legislators secured the votes to pass a bipartisan bill, SB 14, that would outlaw all so-called “gender-affirming care” for minors.

According to Florida lobbyists, they have been contacted by state employees with instructions to send payments to the campaign of Ron DeSantis.

One of the most maddening things about modern culture is the whole issue of pronouns. At the very least, it’s annoying that some people trumpet their pronouns, choosing to base their identity on how people address them when talking about them behind their backs. But it’s even worse the way some people freak out over people using the wrong pronouns as if other people have nothing better to do than keep up with what everybody’s pronouns are at any given moment. Prounoun obsession is the ultimate form of narcissism; it’s entirely self-focused to think that everyone should bend to the whim of what you want to call yourself.

She appeared on a panel discussion during "State of the Union" to react to the news that Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., reached an agreement to raise the debt ceiling after months of debate.

One of the Republicans’ concessions, however, included removing work requirements for social programs like Medicaid and

If the shocking 2016 presidential election of Donald J. Trump taught us anything, it should be that voters can still be unpredictable and unpollable, and that millions of them believe that the entrenched elites from both political parties no longer hear their voices or speak for them. Voters are continually seeking a new champion. Will Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. become such a champion? I believe so — at least as far as the Democratic primary process is concerned. When that process is final and all the votes from the primaries and caucuses have been tabulated, I believe Kennedy will emerge as the Democratic nominee for president in 2024.

A very dear friend and a former Heritage Foundation associate responded to my last column on American Thinker with the following: Happy to tell you in a private email why the GOP needs to dump Trump (for whom I voted twice), but it requires too many bad words that would cause my dear late mother to go for the soap for use in a public forum. For starters, let's just say he's a thin-skinned, immature, undisciplined **shole who is ignorant by choice, erratic in his behavior, and disloyal. And those are some of his better points. Do I hate him? No. But I hate his type.
