America at a Crossroads: Corporations Poised to Take Control of the Republic

The American citizen has to understand how significant the Joe Biden situation is. This is America against the enemies of freedom and reason. Upon exiting the Constitutional Convention Benjamin Franklin was approached by a group of citizens asking what sort of government the delegates had created. “A republic, if you can keep it,” he responded. 

Biden is corrupt to the bone. More than this, he is a Manchurian candidate, an agent of a globalist network integrating Big Finance, Silicone Vally and the Chinese Communist Party. Biden is not merely a national security risk (as if that weren’t bad enough); he is a quisling for the enemies of the American republic. What did George Washington say about foreign entanglements? Biden can’t be president.

10 Years of Big Tech Diversification

But the crisis of democracy goes well beyond Joe Biden. The digital utilities provisionally operated by the tech oligarchs—Facebook, Twitter, etc.—are openly censoring organs of United States government, as well as suppressing the traditional media, whose freedom is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Twitter locked out White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing the New York Post story reporting on Hunter Biden’s hard drive. She is not the only one.

The New York Post was founded by the Federalist Alexander Hamilton, a founding father, way back in 1801. Hamilton, an advocate of a strong central government, is spinning in his grave right now. If you’re alive, your head should be spinning right now.

The founders would never has stood for corporations usurping government power. The individual, the press, the religious establishment—these have independence from the government, an independence protected by the Constitution, all fifty states incorporated. Corporations are not mentioned among the entities the First Amendment protects. The corporation is a creature of the government. This has been true for centuries. The corporation must be governed by the state for freedom to prevail. We cannot allow the state to be governed by the corporation.

I quote myself from May 11, 2020 on this blog:

“As [Richard] Grossman points out [in his talks ‘Defining the Corporation, Defining Ourselves’ and ‘Challenging Corporate Law and Lore’], not even the monarchs of feudalist and early capitalist period tolerated corporate power when it threaten sovereignty. Indeed, as Grossman tells us, corporations held power under absolutism, as well, but it was power delegated by the monarch. Corporations that exceeded their authority were called before the king to be reprimanded, the recalcitrant not dressed down but dismantled, their charters revoked. This is why Thomas Jefferson, a primary author of the American Republic, said of banks and corporations that ‘the selfish spirit of commerce knows no country, and feels no passion or principle but that of gain.’ His conclusion from the observation: ‘I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.’ The ‘aristocracy of moneyed corporations’ is an accurate description of power in the present-day state of affairs.” (We Have Become Eisenhower’s Worst Fears)

The republic is democratic. It is by law designed to defend personal liberty and freedom of association. Corporations are supplanting the republic. Representing the technocratic arm of corporate governance, progressives are okay with that. Corporations are private tyrannies. Democrats are the party of corporate tyranny. If corporations assume total power, then you will live in a totalitarian society. You may be able to buy spinning gadgets. But you will not be free.

Do you love your country? Do you value your freedom? These are questions Americans have to ask themselves right now. America is at a crossroads.
