There’s nothing like living under communism to give you an appreciation for the First Amendment right of free speech.
My Potomac Tea Party is releasing a new video today entitled ‘What My Free Speech Means to Me’. The video features nationally known figures who have been canceled one way or another, and prevented from speaking. But they persevered, and I am more than happy to help them get their message out.
Xi Van Fleet is a refugee from Chinese communism. She has made numerous appearances in the last few years trying to warn Americans about the parallels between today’s ‘Woke’ culture and Mao’s Cultural Revolution in China. The left-wing indoctrinated student government at Whitworth University prevented her from speaking on campus, earlier this year. In our video, she talks about how the right to free speech not only includes speaking your mind, but includes the right to hear other people speak their minds, as well.
Xi is followed in the video by Jim Simpson, a book author and lecturer who has written a history of major communist theorists, entitled Who Was Karl Marx?. One of the theorists in the book is Herbert Marcuse, who propagated the idea of ‘repressive tolerance’ – which is essentially ‘free speech for me, but not for thee.’ Jim discusses in the video how the hard Left enjoys unfettered free speech while working assiduously to take free speech away from the political Right. That’s repressive tolerance in action – the Left will tolerate only hearing its own opinions and repress any contrary opinions. Jim has also written a great deal about the Red-Green Axis, how the Left and sharia supremacists make common cause. He was scheduled to speak on the subject at a Baptist church in Michigan, but the event was cancelled after pressure was brought to bear.
Nationally known Tom Trento of the United West is next up in the video. He has been cancelled and curtailed on social media for his unpopular views about, among other things, moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The last speaker in the video is an Angel Mom, Sabine Durden-Coulter. The term ‘Angel Mom’ means she lost her son to an illegal alien drunk driver, somebody who had no right to be in the country. The Left is a bunch of open borders crazies so, of course, they tried to shut her up and stop her from talking about this.
What the Left doesn’t understand is that Sabine, as well as the other speakers in the video, will never give up. They, as well as I, feel the right of self-expression right down to the marrow of our bones. That’s a more powerful force than any wide-ranging censorship exercise the Biden administration and other outposts of the Left can put together.
If you’re on the Left, here’s my message to you: You may be terrified of the truth, but you will never shut us up. Watch our new video on the Potomac Tea Party channel on YouTube, and begin to get some inkling of what you’re up against. You’ve lost already on this issue, you just don’t know it yet. Free speech now and forever.
Transgenderism on Trial
I routinely ask people in social gatherings ‘how do we win – how do we defeat the Left?’ One answer that’s come back is lawfare, tying up our opponents in court. Transgenderism is one area where lawfare could actually work. Legal action has the potential to bring down the entire Transgender-Industrial Complex.
To that end, I have created a new section on my website – Transgenderism on Trial – to foment more litigation against doctors, psychologists, school administrators, teachers, and other instrumentalities of the Transgender-Industrial Complex who are either out to make a buck or to make America a communist country.
I don’t throw around the word ‘communism’ lightly, only when I have the goods and here I most definitely do. The first thing you will see in my new transgenderism section is a video showing four transgender activists openly and explicitly discussing how the purpose of transgenderism is to usher communism into the United States. If you think communism is cute, we’ll see how cute you think it is when communism arrives here and you get the midnight knock on the door from the secret police to haul you off to the gulag for thought crimes.
Transgenderism on Trial starts with a news feed. I am the only one collecting all the stories from all around the country about litigation against health care providers and school districts pushing life-altering drugs and irreversible mutilating surgery on defenseless kids. The news out of Missouri is amazing. A trans whistleblower documented enough corrupt practices at a gender clinic in St. Louis to bring a whole-of-government investigation down on the clinic that may result in civil enforcement actions and criminal charges. The practices include pushing transitioning on kids without psychological assessments in individual cases, prescribing drugs without parental consent or after consent was revoked, lack of full disclosure of the adverse and long-term consequences of sex change drugs and surgery, false claims children would commit suicide if not allowed to transition, and other high pressure sales tactics. The investigation will determine whether school officials conspired with clinicians to form a school-to-clinic pipeline of steady business for the clinic.
That’s just one case. My news feeds chronicles other cases where doctors are being sued for botched surgeries, medical experimentation with unstudied or unapproved drugs, and pushing transgender drugs and surgery instead of providing counseling. Cases are also sprouting up against school districts for transitioning kids without parental knowledge or consent, violating teachers’ religious beliefs, and firing teachers who refuse to lie to parents or otherwise get with the transgender program.
Transgenderism on Trial provides a list of law firms and legal foundations around the country bringing these types of cases or expressing a desire to enter the field. These are the courtroom warriors who vindicating parental rights, pursuing medical malpractice claims, and taking action against so-called transgender sanctuary states that lure kids from other parts of the country.
Using my collection of parental resources, parents can arm themselves with the facts and learn how to deal with gender-questioning children and high-pressure sales tactics from clinicians and school administrators. In addition to books and parental guides, the list of resources tells parents how to find support groups and objective counselors who will give parents unbiased information about the subject.
Finally, there’s a page on the most despicable high-pressure sales tactic of all – telling parents their children will commit suicide if not allowed to transition. A second set of researchers reexamined the raw data from the original study making this claim and found that the data did not support the study’s conclusions. When confronted with this information, the University of Washington which participated in the original study tried to cover it up. Other early studies making similar claims were later found to be flawed for, among other things, failing to track outcomes long enough to draw reliable conclusions and hiding raw data from other researchers. Finally, the page describes two other studies showing people who transition are MORE likely – not less likely – to commit suicide. Lies, misrepresentations, hiding data, ignoring later studies – there’s enough on the page to completely debunk the high pressure sales tactics the snake-oil salesmen are using on parents.
Plaintiffs of the World, Unite! Let’s bring down the communist transgender activists who are trying to destroy the country and the doctors, school administrators, and other financially self-interested useful idiots who are getting paid handsomely for doing their bidding. There’s nothing like legal liability and a blizzard of court cases to focus the mind. Let’s swarm them and put them out of business.
de Tocqueville Was Right: Swarms of Busy-Bee Bureaucrats Buzzing About
The American Idea is that We the People are sovereign and the purpose of government is to protect our rights. [Instant Graduate Degree in Political Science] But the authoritarian Left doesn’t believe in the American Idea. It wants to misuse government to rule over us and take away our rights. Here are just some of the ways the authoritarian Left has overreached, recently:
Washington’s Governor just signed a new law allowing the state to take children away from parents if parents refuse to consent to a child’s gender transitioning or abortion. Refusing to allow these things is now considered child abuse and your children become state property. Things have been trending in this direction for some time, with child protective service officials in California and Arizona admitting they take children away without seeking court orders. That’s illegal and a complete overreach. A Democrat bill in California would allow mental health professionals to take children away without parental knowledge or consent and without accusation, evidence, or trial. Children would be placed in LGBT facilities in what critics call ‘state-sanctioned kidnapping’. Just wait until militant gay and transgender crusader bureaucrats get ahold of this power. In their view, every child should be gay or transgender and this bill would be a dream come true.
Our rogue out-of-control left-wing FBI is still engaged in tens of thousands of unconstitutional warrantless searches of American citizens’ electronic communications. People who support this activity point to the fact that the number of warrantless searches declined from over 3 million in 2021 to 119,000 in 2022. But that’s still over a hundred thousand searches without court approval under a power that will expire by the end of this year unless Congress renews it. This is the same FBI that has “purchased internet metadata, which can reveal the websites Americans visit, as well as sensitive information such as what doctor a person sees, their religion or what dating sites they use.” Not content with snooping around your life, the FBI also wants to take your money. In 2021, the FBI seized the contents of 1,400 safe deposit boxes in California without telling the owners why or ever charging them with a crime. It amounted to $86 million in cash and tens of millions more in gold, jewelry, and other valuables. Maybe the FBI spent too much money trying to pin Russia collusion on Trump and needed the cash to go after ordinary Catholics for praying in church and ordinary parents for speaking out against government overreach at school board meetings. And you want to tell me the FBI is not the face of the authoritarian Left? You’re out of your mind.
Let’s look at some other ways you, your children, and your valuables have become state property lately:
- Our corrupt FBI and Justice Department are hiding, destroying, and tampering with evidence and spying on defense teams in the January 6th trials
- New York City sent the fingerprints of employees who refused COVID vaccination to the FBI so the employees could be tracked, causing them to have trouble getting other jobs
- the CDC created a database to track unvaccinated Americans at the behest of the overreaching World Health Organization which is now demanding the U.S. and other countries give up their sovereignty so the WHO can commandeer public health policy in the next pandemic
- a federal judge ruled that the 18 colleges that don’t take federal money are still subject to federal regulation by virtue of their tax exemptions. That’s a stretch.
- school meal programs keep expanding and the authoritarian Left won’t stop until everyone is dependent on government for everything. It’s not supposed to be this way.
- the EPA’s controversial ‘Waters of the United States’ rule proclaimed jurisdiction over every ditch and puddle in the country, but was knocked down by a court. Now the EPA is back in court defending another overreach, an updated virtually identical rule that asserts federal authority over ditches and puddles where none exists.
- HHS tried to tell a Catholic hospital in Oklahoma not to burn candles in the chapel, but was forced to back down, thanks to people who still care about religious liberty, a founding principle of this country.
Religious liberty is just one of the ideas the Founders had that is better than what is going on today. Here’s another – limited government under the Constitution. Let’s get back to it because, right now, what we’ve got is what de Tocqueville warned about: a “multitude of new Offices” and swarms of overreaching bureaucrats sent – not to protect our rights – but to “harass our people, and eat out their substance.” The authoritarian Left is the central challenge of our time. Overreach no more.

NEW: Country Music Television has pulled Jason Aldean’s music video ‘Try That In A Small Town’ in response to media outrage.
In the music video, Aldean calls out left-wing violence, specifically violence against law enforcement.
