Attorney turned award-winning journalist Glen Greenwald ripped lawmakers and the tech giants in another news analysis on the topic of censorship. Some Democrats are pushing the tech titans for more censorship, Greenwald observed. Some Republicans alleged in recent hearings with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and Google’s Sundar Pichai with Congressional lawmakers that censorship is aimed at the political right. Greenwald made the evidence-based argument that the tech giants are also targeting voices from the left, if those voices raise concerns that do not fit the tech billionaires’ corporate and political agendas. In making that argument, the left-leaning liberal correctly refined the evidence-based record in a fashion that could support a broader bipartisan or nonpartisan effort that could curb their otherwise growing powers over U.S. and others’ political, economic, social, cultural, and even religious issues.
Conservatives are aware of the push by social media to silence what Washington’s Mall journalist turned pundit Chris Plante has dubbed “freedom of speech and freedom of reach.” That push to ‘curb, cancel, and marginalize’ the right has gone as far as the deplatforming of a then-sitting President Donald J. Trump (R). Even his socialist opponent Senator Bernie Sanders said he is not comfortable with that move to deplatform – limiting freedom of speech and freedom of reach – of a sitting president.
Twitter’s Jack Dorsey has himself mused something similar himself in a self-contradictory fashion.
That backdrop of silencing or limiting “freedom of speech and freedom of reach” is often aided, encouraged, and abetted in the Greenwald thesis by people in mainstream ’legacy’ media and certain politicians who often tend to be Democrats, but who include so-called “Establishment” Republicans.
When someone steps back and examines those facts and contentions, what that outline may imply is a potential for a broader coalition that spans the left-right divide. More on that later.
But on the other hand are the vexing words heard by former President George W. Bush (R), a self- proclaimed “New World Order” president, who recently stated that populist movements tend to burn themselves out in fairly short order.
Republican Bush, former Democratic Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have each in their own way pushed that ‘new world order’ refrain. The superficially – on the surface – odd trio have thus once again aligned publicly. Bush, in the election challenges of 2020, came down on the side of Democrat Joe Biden. He was not alone, but routinely – when carefully examined – those in the Grand Old Party (GOP) who are Republicans but still threw in with Democrats like Biden-Harris are in that “Establishment” “New World Order” camp. These details matter, as will be understood further below.
This most recent instance of Clinton-Bush-Obama providing public support for the same cause is to push ‘the Establishment’s’ COVID-19 narrative and push for the vaccine. Whatever perspective someone may have on that topic, it is interesting to see these Establishment types push a narrative happens to align with the interests of Big Pharma and is the one that the tech giants – such as billionaire Bill Gates – happen to favor publicly too.
Coincidences? Never forget what Senator William Proxmire said: There are no coincidences in Washington. Just follow the money trail to see where those ‘coincidences’ lead.
Bush’s father George H.W. Bush – who was Ronald Reagan’s Vice President and followed Reagan into the White House – was deeply involved in the CIA.
As Saturday 3.27.2021 news analysis linked below from this Sunday Weekly Headlines Review revealed, there are other correlations between law enforcement and intelligence services that are instances cited by professionals that once more span the left-right divide.
Americans for Limited Government (ALG) VP – conservative Robert Romano, or Greenwald, lifelong Democratic Robert F. Kennedy Jr, and conservative cartoonist A.F. Branco – these are just some of those who are making a partial to occasionally full-throated claim that the intelligence and law enforcement powers of the U.S. have long been weaponized to push their agenda.
That agenda may be at work irrespective of the party of the president in office. Examples of that are Presidents Kennedy (D) and Trump (R). That agenda routinely connects dots between corporate influence, power, and government officials and agencies. Says who?
Keep in mind the parting farewell message of war hero and Republican President Dwight D. “Ike” Eisenhower. Eisenhower warned about and against the “military-industrial complex.”
Ladies and gentlemen, that phrase by Ike is a different mode of expressing what Greenwald, RF Kennedy Jr, Branco, Romano, and others have described. Put differently, once more, that evidence based and cross-linked reports that make that point and others are found in the headlines for the week further below.
These may also be examples of what former Democrat-turned-Republican former President Ronald Reagan who said, years before taking office, was fascism from the political left. See how that fits into the picture above in the Kevin Borden, MHAction report found below on MHLivingNews. As with our other reports, we routinely cite sources and document the evidence in those individual reports linked further below.
Some understandably rail against monopoly power at work in our profession, as well as that of other professions too. Libertarian-leaning Senator Rand Paul (KY-R) is a medical doctor in the field of ophthalmology. Senator Paul has been willing to publicly challenge the shifting COVID-19 narrative of Dr. Anthony Fauci. Paul once said that there is an “unholy alliance” that occurs between Democrats and Republicans. Those two parties collude, Paul has argued, to give each other some of what they want.
What Paul described is duopoly at work. A duopoly can be a monopolistic pattern – operating in plain sight – in Washington and in most U.S. state politics. That is accomplished in some measure by so-called ballot access laws, which sets barriers to smaller third parties to get enough traction to challenge the two major parties. Third parties in the U.S. are not illegal. They are simply not easy to make successful in practice.
Walker Announces Operation – “The Long Game”
Former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) has announced an operation that the Young Americans foundation are calling “The Long Game.” Walker’s press materials – provided to MHProNews and found at this link here – makes the claim that the political left started over half a century ago to take over higher education in America. Primary and secondary education are also heavily influenced by the left, says Walker and their media statement and related photos, illustrations, and text.
To counter that leftist long game, a conservative long game is needed, says Walker.
Walker’s background is worth noting. He took on the teacher’ union powers in Wisconsin. He faced an often-vicious series of attacks that included a partial takeover of their State Capitol building in Madison, WI. That was high drama that mesmerized not only WI news coverage but drew much national media too.
With the benefit of historic hindsight, some of the playbook by the left against Walker was arguably repeated and enhanced against Donald J. Trump too. History doesn’t repeat per se, but there are echoes. Because as historians and history enthusiasts know, anything that has happened before can happen again.
Rephrased, with a discerning view of American history, a pattern emerges. That pattern involves our industry and profession. But it goes well beyond affordable manufactured homes too.
Monopolistic powers are a key part of what has undermined several parts of the American economy. Who says? That is what Minneapolis Federal Reserve researcher James A. Schmitz Jr. calls “sabotage monopoly” practices that often mask their influence is at work in the USA. Schmitz’s personal politics are not known, but what he says is similar to what voices across the left-right divide have argued with increased urgency in recent years. Robert Reich, Robert F. Kennedy Jr, and Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA-D) – for instances on the left – or Senators like Josh Hawley (MO-R) and Ted Cruz (TX-R), on the right have been raising with urgency the alarm on monopoly power.
So Schmitz and company’s research – which were examined in detail last week – are among the examples applied this week in reports linked below in this weekly review.
Those monopoly forces are not only ones of wealth, capital access, and thus economic power, but extends via ballot access and other duopoly-monopolistic practices into the political/legal/law-enforcement/intelligence realms too.
If that sounds too fantastic to believe, just look at Davos and the World Economic Forum (WEF). The world’s economic and political elites gather in plain sight with global media at hand to scheme how to advance the New World Order under whatever its latest branded name is supposed to be.
Currently, that’s New World Order branding being pushed is the so-called “The Great Reset.” The Great Reset uses the slogan, being used in the U.S. and by Canada, of “Build Back Better.” Does that sound like a Biden-Harris campaign slogan? Because it was and still is. Once more, those links and references are found in our MHAction/Kevin Borden report, shown further below.
Despite often years of evidence, some might say ‘No!’ ‘That’s just a conspiracy theory!’ ‘Better get Facebook and Twitter to censors that kind of talk!’ However, the problem is, applying the principle that Greenwald noted, years of examples of that spans the left, center, and right in America.
It can be denied that Great Reset videos were prepared years ago. Because they still exist. They are on the WEF website. You can find them on YouTube.
What does the WEF and their Great Reset materials push, among other things?
Ending the ownership of things in America and around the world. You will rent everything, says the WEF. “You will rent everything and you will be happy.” If that sounds to you like a propagandist at work on behalf of Davos and WEF elites who seem to be pushing a rebranded call for socialism, you might be right.
Certainly, the Davos elites do not seem inclined to give up their private jets, yachts, huge carbon footprint mansions, motorcades, and highly-armed security details. If you complain or happen to be forward enough to point out those seemingly contradictory facts, you might de facto be told to ‘shut up and obey you serf, or you will be cancelled, mocked, and ridiculed!’
Don’t believe it? Well look what they have gotten away with – at least so far – with billionaire President Donald J. Trump!
If the powers that be can
- do that to a billionaire and president,
- if they can cancel Parler – purportedly a billion-dollar brand when the tech giants ganged up and deplatformed an entire corporation –
- then what makes far smaller manufactured home companies — or any other competitor of the powers that be — hope to face and encounter IF concerted action is not systematically taken?
Scott Walker is calling for a long game. The timing may be coincidental. But it happens to be the Jewish Passover and the start of the Christian Holy Week. Properly understood, these happen to connect to more than this moment in time. More on that in the postscript for today, further below.

Jews, Muslims, Buddhist, other Believers Take Note:
Moving Toward Marginalizing Christians Before Easter?
In famous best-selling author G.K. Chesterton’s Napolean Of Notting Hill, he said: “Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.” A range of Christians are saying that their beliefs are being directly assaulted. What they believe is God-given revelation, a wave of cancel-culture pushers say no longer fits in modern America.
The battle being waged today is in some real senses a battle of those who would dominate humanity by economic, political, social, and even a kind of idolatry like new-age religious beliefs.
- Yes, monopoly power is part of that struggle.
- Yes, the case for sabotage monopoly that masks the truth until it becomes too late to stop the final power grab that will leave – if the Davos-WEF crowd get their way – in a so-called great reset that strips most of humanity of all of their rights and properties.
- That great reset is not great at all, save for those who desire it.
- It is no accident that voices from across the left-right divide are warning against that Obvious Misnomer of “the Great Reset.“
- Political, medical, and religious figures are raising their voices against it.
- On the one hand, those pushing the billionaire backed Biden call for “Build Back Better” – which is part of the Great Reset agenda – are being mocked, marginalized, and otherwise cast as morons, loons, or worse.
- But who are those who raise these concerns being mocked by? Is it not by the surrogates or even those like Gates who want the reset In the first place?
- Thus, the investigators classic question – Cui Bono? Who benefits?
- That cui bono must be explored, asked, and answered. Then, those behind the Great Reset and their related agenda of globalist feudalism which empowers the few via the marginalization of the many must be stopped.
If New World Order (sometimes said as NWO, but has gone by several other names over recent decades) supporting ex-President GW Bush is correct, then the populist movement that helped brought:
- the brothers Jack and Bobby Kennedy family to prominence,
- and/or the presidencies of Ronald Reagan and later Donald Trump, will peter out.
If Bush and his allies are right, then this time will inevitably witness the slide of America into a new feudalism. Because when the veil is pulled back, that is what the Great Reset is. A feudal order that – like ancient Egypt – that has a pantheon of beliefs. Those ancient Egyptian thoughts – when examined – are pagan or neo-Christian, neo-Jewish, neo-Muslim, etc. This push aims to reorder and end traditional religious beliefs to align with the views of those with ascendant – but not yet absolute – temporal power.
As was noted in the MHAction report linked above, this happens to be the time of the Jewish feast of the Passover. What is the Passover? It is an – eternal – remembrance of the liberation of the Israelites or the Jewish people from the bondage of slavery to the rulers of Egypt, who were pagans!
The Egyptians were not ‘godless.’ Rather, they had a pantheon of ‘small g’ gods and idols. They, in some sense, worshipped elements of nature. Those upper classes glorified their ruling elites, as well as the other ‘gods’ or false idols of Egypt. Sound familiar?
But the Egyptians were cruel task masters. They were a caste society. If you were in the ancient Egyptian ruling class, you had a good life. But if you were in the class of the masses, you lived to serve the ‘upper classes.’ Sound familiar?
Notice that, viewed through that lens, the struggle of Moses and Aaron can be framed as an effort to lead a rebellion of the enslaved people of Israel that included a desire to shed the economic, political, social, and religious structures of that Egyptian epoch. Those ruling elites has a monopolistic hold over the people. That ancient Egypt – in orthodox Jewish and classical Christian biblical thought – are synonymous with sin, death, captivity, idolatry, and servitude.
In Europe and in America, based in part on Scriptural but also other world history, the push-back against monopoly is centuries old. What is occurring in America today is just a repeat of the lessons of the past.
To briefly clarify a common misconception of recent centuries — never forget that all images were not deem ‘idols’ in Scripture. Israel’s God – and there is only one Creator of all – commanded the making of certain images or statues. Examples are the angels over the arch of the Covenant. The Temple had images carved in it. The tablets of the Ten Commandments were themselves physical “images” commanded by God! So, when someone reads that God forbid idols that is to be understood in the sense of any image that is being worshipped in a false way; meaning in contradiction to God’s eternal laws. Most people have scores of images on their smart phones. Are those images ‘idols?’ Only if they are being worshipped in a fashion that violates God’s commandments.
Back to Moses and Aaron, starting in Exodus 12:1, “The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt. This month will stand at the head of your calendar; you will reckon it the first month of the year.” The “this month” is the month of the Jewish Passover.
Skipping to Ex. 12:12: “For on this same night [Passover] I will go through Egypt, striking down every firstborn in the land, human being and beast alike, and executing judgment on all the gods of Egypt—I, the LORD!” It was through the historic – indeed, epic events of Passover and the crossing of the Red Sea made famous in the classic Charlton Heston movie, “The Ten Commandments” that resulted in the liberation of the Jewish people, the ancient people of God. That liberation was both physical and in a real sense a spiritual event too.
Fast forward to the time of Jesus Christ.
Why did Jesus of Nazareth – Jesus of “Bethlehem,” which means “the House of Bread” – allow himself to die at the time of the Jewish Passover? The case is made that it was the new liberation. Not just liberation or freedom from the servitude to Rome, to which the Israelites were in bondage during the time of Jesus Christ. But rather from all of those same structures of sin that has plagued humanity since Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve – the first parents of the human family – only had one commandment to keep. That one command was not to eat of the fruit of the tree in the center of the garden. All else was okay for them. But the slippery, metaphorical – yet real – snake called Satan managed to tempt the two to break that one single and seemingly simple law.
Put differently, there are scores of parallels between what is found in the Hebrew Scriptures – which Christian commonly refer to as the Old Testament – and the New Testament. The Old Testament or Hebrew Scriptures reveal an ongoing struggle of the forces of sin and the those forces that seek – however imperfectly – to follow the Divine Law.
After all, Jesus said: “For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” Bible Hub, NIV Matthew 5:18.
“For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” Bible Hub, NIV Matthew 5:18.
Later in Matthew 22:36-40 (NIV), Jesus is asked: “36Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ [a] 38 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ [b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” The Bible Gateway shows as footnotes a and b the following references:
- Matthew 22:37 Deut. 6:5
- Matthew 22:39 Lev. 19:18
History repeats in several possible senses. Once is that human nature has never changed. Humanity was seduced by the devil or Satan into disobedience of the Divine Law in the Garden of Eden. That seduction is ongoing. By falling into sin, what happens? Slavery or ‘serfdom’ to humans who would rule over other humans in a way that is contrary to the Divine will.
Many religions, ancient and newer, teach their fellows to avoid deception and treachery. That is not to say that all religions are the same, they obviously are not. But it is to note that certain common points exist.
Humanity today must guard against those who would by hook and crook trick us into the loss of the freedoms that the founders of the American Republic fought and often died for and have continued to struggle for ever since.
As Ronald Reagan said, we are never more than one generation away from losing our liberties.
Monopolistic power structures are part of that modern problem. But undergirding it all are the problems of sin. The solution to that is always repentance. Governor Walker thinks The Long Game is a good plan. The left thinks so too.
The good news is that God has had played The Long Game since before the beginning of time. God’s long game is eternal.
May the blessings and inspirations of these High Holy Days be upon all.
