First Comes DC–Then Comes TikTok and Any Other Enemy

People are waking up to the truth by the illegal truck loads, and we are certainly in a better position in this information war than we were four years ago, but it is also mildly unsettling to see so many people still believe that the swamp in Washington, DC has our best interest at heart.

Latest case in point: the TikTok drama.

Look, it is probable that this latest move by the federal government will end up boomeranging on them, just like so many other stories have in the last four years, especially in recent months. See Trump for the microcosm. But until then, it would behoove all Americans who believe this is the one time the federal government is actually trying to protect us to do a complete 180.

They’re not. The greatest threat to our republic and, most importantly, the freedom to worship our God and King, is not a social media app, and it’s not Russia or Iran or China either.

It’s right there down the road in Washington, DC. And it’s really obvious if you just take a bit of a gander at it every now and then. Once you start looking at everything from this baseline, everything else makes a whole lot more sense.

Here are Tucker Carlson and Rand Paul opining on the issue (16:48).

Sweeping narrative truths aside for a moment, here are some of the nuts and bolts of the story at this point, courtesy of CNN:

The US House of Representatives voted Wednesday to pass a bill that could lead to a nationwide ban against TikTok, one of the world’s most popular social media apps. It’s not yet clear what the future of the bill will be in the Senate.

Here’s what you need to know about the vote and what may happen next:

  • Who voted for the bill: The House vote was 352 to 65, with 50 Democrats and 15 Republicans voting in opposition. In a rare show of bipartisanship, the measure advanced unanimously out of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee, and President Joe Biden has said he would sign the bill if it makes it to his desk.
  • Why the bill passed: Lawmakers supportive of the bill have argued TikTok poses a national security threat because the Chinese government could use its intelligence laws against TikTok’s Chinese parent company, ByteDance, forcing it to hand over the data of US app users.
  • What the legislation would do: The bill would prohibit TikTok from US app stores unless the social media platform — used by roughly 170 million Americans — is spun off from ByteDance. The bill would give ByteDance roughly five months to sell TikTok. If not divested by that time, it would be illegal for app store operators such as Apple and Google to make it available for download.

That’s the politics of it, but we have to look deeper.

There is a convergence of narratives here. There is a most delicious result that can and likely will arise from all of this–the waking up of more and more Americans to the patterns of evil levied upon us for decades, perhaps centuries. We’ve explored it with Ukraine. We’ve explored it with Israel. The Mar-a-Lago raid. The Russia Russia Russia hoax. The attempt to keep Trump off the ballot. The southern border.

On and on goes the list. Inevitable nuances aside, these stories comprise the same exact pattern. They are based on fear, keeping the American people in the dark, pointing the finger at some imaginary other side, and promising to come in on a white horse to save the day while they rob us dumb of our money and dignity.

All of this is to destroy America from within. Infiltration. It started a long time ago, and certainly the Bushes and Clintons are front and center. But so much of this rests on the shoulders of one Barack Hussein Obama, who is undoubtedly still running Deep State operations inside this country, using the vegetable-in-chief as a front.

Speaking of Bush, that Patriot Act in the wake of 9/11 should be coming in clearer two decades later. Don’t worry, they said. We’re just going after the terrorists to protect you, they said. We’d never spy on well-meaning American citizens, they said.

Then Facebook happened. Then a whole lot of other things happened that prove they’ve been harvesting our personal information ever since.

But they’re going to ride in on their white horse and protect us from TikTok now?

If they were out to protect us from the boogeymen all over the planet looking to spy on and destroy us, they wouldn’t allow spy balloons to float indefinitely across the sky.

If they were out to protect us, they wouldn’t have been allowing China to gobble up our farmlands and control the food supply all these years. They wouldn’t allow them to make our medicines, or manufacture damn near everything we purchase, or infiltrate our universities and other institutions, or allow tens of thousands of them to cross over the southern border.

Or or or or.

This is not about China. This is about Washington, DC continuing to panic more and more because none of their insidious manipulations that have worked in the past are working anymore. This is all about the latest attempt to control the information on social media, just as they did in October 2020 when they scrubbed the truth about the Hunter Biden laptop from Twitter and everywhere else right before the election. He who controls the narrative controls election outcomes. And he who controls that controls the information war with American citizens.

The bottom line is this: If they’re going after TikTok so aggressively all of a sudden–in the election year of all election years–then they can go after the Xs and Rumbles of the world too. The fact that they are not going after Facebook and Instagram which allow and promote child trafficking should set up the lesson in a clear-as-day contrast for us. In the realm of justice in Washington, some people have to pay for their sins and some don’t. With TikTok, they are hoping to set a precedent to decide what is safe, what is truth, what is open to the American public to see. This move reeks of a red herring and slippery slope, and recognizing it as such will make it all the more glorious when the latest panic comes back around to smash them in the face.

May everyone named directly or referenced indirectly ask forgiveness and do penance for their sins against America and God. I fight this information war in the spirit of justice and love for the innocent, but I have been reminded of the need for mercy and prayers for our enemies. I am a sinner in need of redemption as well after all, for my sins are many. In the words of Jesus Christ himself, Lord forgive us all, for we know not what we do.
