The First Amendment to the Constitution begins with what George F. Will once called “the most beautiful five words in the English language”: “Congress shall make no law.”
No law respecting an establishment of religion.
No law prohibiting the free exercise of religion.
No law abridging the freedom of speech, or the press.
No law abridging the right of the people to assemble peaceably to petition for redress of grievances.
But the government has found a way around that. They don’t need a law. They just need a new executive branch bureau with the power to make and enforce regulations that Congress never sees. The Biden administration has decided that George Orwell’s 1984 isn’t a cautionary tale, but an instruction manual and has created its own Ministry of Truth, or as Orwell abbreviated it, “Minitrue” – the “Disinformation Governance Board,” – and headed it with a woman well-schooled in disinformation, because she has extensive practice at it.
Do you understand why the Left so desperately needs a majority on the Supreme Court?
The 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence comes in 2026. I wonder if we’ll make it there intact?
