The effort on the ‘woke’ left to ban Dr. Seuss would be ridiculous if it weren’t for the possibility that they could be successful.
The leftists’ ‘cancel culture’ is branding Dr. Seuss as racist, even though he was a liberal who penned books design to end racism. So what’s this really about?
It’s about destroying American culture.
The Marxists want not only Seuss destroyed but also Shakespeare, classic movies, and even math. They especially hate Christians and the Bible. The deconstruction-minded left sees it as hate speech. Christians and patriots are seen as terrorists and they must be silenced and replaced with transexual celebrations. They want American culture destroyed so it can be ‘built back better.’ That means socialism.
Most children of all races grew up reading Dr. Seuss. He was inclusive. His illustrations didn’t portray race. The creatures weren’t even human most of the time. Instead, they they were creative, multi-colored creatures that appealed to everyone. I was very young when I read my first Dr. Seuss book. It was titled “Bartholomew and the Oobleck.” I can’t remember how old I was exactly, but it was the first book I read on my own and I was fascinated by it. I read more of his books after that and in retrospect I realize that Dr. Seuss opened the door to reading for many young children while helping to instill within them a love of books.
Now the left wants his books destroyed along with Mark Twain and ‘white’ western literature in general. Dr. Seuss was also an excellent editorial cartoonist. A case could be made for racism in some of his depictions of the Japanese in cartoons he drew during World War II, but he drew many more that spoke out against racism. I found myself cringing a bit over his promotion of war. He hated isolationists. He railed against the ‘America First’ mentality and naturally I disagreed with him on that.
Still, his political cartoons were first-rate. Let’s not let the Bolsheviks kill the ‘Cat In The Hat.’

An interesting albeit manipulative proclamation from the control agents atop the Eye of Sauron, Google. The leading manipulative entity behind the global invasion of privacy is now saying they consider “privacy” a priority. As a result they are moving to stop tracking individual users as part of their business model…
(Via WSJ) […] “If digital advertising doesn’t evolve to address the growing concerns people have about their privacy and how their personal identity is being used, we risk the future of the free and open web,” David Temkin, the Google product manager leading the change, said in a blog post Wednesday.
Let us first be clear… CTH is not suddenly naive enough to believe that Google is now positioning out of some great sense of altruism, magnanimity or business stewardship. That thought is laughable in the extreme. No, what is really going on here is that the Eye of Sauron has noticed how the Rebel Alliance, within which CTH is a leading insurgency voice, has found ways to tunnel under the technology landscape.
Additionally, both domestic and international patriots are putting laws, rules and regulations into place that are directly adverse to the current business model that Google has been dependent upon for their Ad Revenue services. There are people working in the background to create regulations on top of the tech industry that are founded on privacy concerns.
In the U.S. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida legislature are one group who are heeding the assistance from tech insiders, members of the insurgency, well versed in the roadmap of Google. There are plans in the works that will cut the tentacles of the Tech overlords. Google is now being manipulatively proactive in their self-defense.
Outside the U.S. the advancements of privacy regulations are being spear-headed by Australia, Poland, Hungary and subsidiary Rebel Alliance members who are also benefiting from the insider information provided. The alliance membership grows daily.
Cont… […] Google plans to stop selling ads based on individuals’ browsing across multiple websites, a change that could hasten upheaval in the digital advertising industry.
The Alphabet Inc. GOOG -2.57% company said Wednesday that it plans next year to stop using or investing in tracking technologies that uniquely identify web users as they move from site to site across the internet.
The decision, coming from the world’s biggest digital-advertising company, could help push the industry away from the use of such individualized tracking, which has come under increasing criticism from privacy advocates and faces scrutiny from regulators.
How do we know the Rebel Alliance is making a difference? Specifically, how do we know efforts of CTH are bearing fruit in our tech push-back…. Because “sandboxing” was a CTH developmental tool, being field tested with tech partners since 2017.
[…] Google says its ad-buying tools will use new technologies it has been developing with others in what it calls a “privacy sandbox” to target ads without collecting information about individuals from multiple websites. One such technology analyzes users’ browsing habits on their own devices, and allows advertisers to target aggregated groups of users with similar interests, or “cohorts,” rather than individual users. Google said in January that it plans to begin open testing of buying using that technology in the second quarter. (read more)
Ironically, and not coincidentally, it appears Google now wants to own the tunneling technology that was created specifically to work around the influence of Google.
It will be interesting to see if the creators of the “privacy sandbox” will stand up to the pressure of Google and avoid the lure of cashing in and selling-out.
‘Sandboxing’ was essentially created as a way to permit alliances of interests to: make privacy a priority, and monetize their on-line content without worrying about the intrusions of Google, and/or the demonetization fear that comes with dependency.
On the positive side of this shift, Google is now recognizing they can only push the limits of their oligarchy and ideology so far….. Eventually there is a secondary system created that works around their control. So the efforts of the rebel alliance are now inside the boardroom of Google. There is a disturbance in the force and the emperor is scared.
This public statement by Google, and the subsequent shift in position, is an admission of vulnerability; and remember, once a giant publicly admits their vulnerability people will move-in to exploit it. We can expect to see more funding into the systems being created by rebel alliance members who need the support to destroy the Eye of Sauron.
Indeed, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp already jumped into the fray, posting on social media: “First Mr. Potato Head, now Dr. Seuss. Clearly, Democrats – with help from the Biden Administration – will cancel anyone and anything.” Meanwhile, his family have come out and said he was a gentle soul who was never racist.
It may seem absurd to say, but the truth is Discrimination Made America Great! How? Each new group of immigrants from Europe came to America to seek freedom. But they all spoke different languages like the story from the Bible of the Tower of Babel. Each was discriminated against fairly insofar as it was always the last one off the boat. The discrimination compelled them to learn English to get employment. I did an interview in Germany and I explained that it was the reverse of the Biblical story, for once everyone spoke the same language, then they intermarried. So ask an American what they are and they will typically respond half-German and half-Italian or whatever. You rarely see intermarriage in Europe because of the different languages.
The discrimination created unity, whereas now we are turning back in the cycle to disunity, divided by politics and all sorts of classifications that render a person as part of some small group rather than part of the whole. Football teams have had to change their names and suddenly everything offends someone somewhere. So is the solution utter silence and we all stay in our closets under perpetual lockdown for we offend someone by just breathing out CO2?
Democrats are now “WOKE” and passed rules that you can no longer refer to a member of Congress as he, she, husband, wife. Pelosi pushed rules to direct the House to use what is called “gendered language.” This means that the House rules eliminate the use of terms like father, son, mother, daughter, grandmother, and grandfather. Suddenly, because of people who are not satisfied with their gender, the rest of the world has to stop using gender definitions. But in most Latin languages, the ending of words has always been gender-oriented like Francisco, for male, Francisca, for female. So we are to change the language.
A survey in 2016, from the Williams Institute, estimated that 0.6% of U.S. adults identify as transgender. This is less than 1% of the population. How many people are offended by Marxism having survived the Communist era? About 11% of all immigrants coming to America are from behind the old Iron Curtain. Then there are the Chinese who have fled to America and dominate the Vancouver area in Canada. The Democrats do not care that their policies offend these people who have fled these very same political ideas.
Perhaps the next book to be banned will be the Bible because it is also racist and is offensive in this new day of being WOKE where this political correctness has gone mad with respect to gender and orders women to be subservient to their husbands and to care for the home. There are over 100 passages that offend someone on gender alone. Where does this end? I suppose all history must be banned for it offended someone at some time along the way. It takes someone with thick skin to even be in politics. Anyone sensitive to criticism better stay inside in a self-imposed lockdown.
Titus 2:5 ESV /To be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
Ephesians 5:22-24 ESV /Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.
Matthew 5:1-48ESV /Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth
1 Peter 3:1-6 ESV / Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, …
Colossians 3:18 ESV / Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
Fox10 News Anchor Kari Lake has reflected on the trend-line for U.S. media and decided she can no longer participate in an industry that has devolved to a system of narrative engineering. Ms. Lake speaks directly to the issue of manipulated news feed script and she is no longer willing to participate in this activity.
Kari Lake: “Journalism has changed a lot since I first stepped into a newsroom… I don’t like the direction it is going. …I’m sure there are other journalists out there who feel the same way.”
The oppression by the left is always detrimental to freedom, for they do not believe in any freedom whatsoever — freedom must always conform to their vision of society. The LEFT has now gone after Justice Thomas simply because he dissented in the opinion at the Supreme Court which he correctly pointed out that it was unconstitutional for officials to change election rules at any time when such things must be enacted EXCLUSIVELY by the legislature. The Supreme Court under Chief Justice Roberts is no longer a place of law — it is wallowing in the mud of discretion.
Amazon has pulled the documentary on Justice Thomas. Race no longer matters if they disagree with what someone says. Of course, Amazon will not explain why and they did it ironically during Black History Month.
The world these people are creating is not one that values freedom of thought, speech, and body. They are not only canceling anyone they disagree with, but they are using this COVID scam to prevent the freedom of travel, which they fear will lead to the freedom of assembly. What’s next? Concentration camps and medical experiments that reduce population?
After Greg Kelly interviewed President Trump on a variety of topics, Google removed the video from You Tube claiming a violation of community standards. Tonight, Greg Kelly recaps that interview and other topics.
‘We The People’ stand with President Trump; Big Tech is scared of that – Bigly.
One point on the media overall. The far-left is addicted to Trump. Their ratings are collapsing because they have no other topic to fill their cup. Democrats cannot quit Trump…. They are addicted to him. Without Trump, Democrats have no identity.
Over the past several weeks the tech team behind CTH 2.0 has been working on a test site to optimize the battle-tank known as The Last Refuge. This is phase-3 of the CTH anti-fragile system, know as the optimization phase.
The goal of optimization is to take the decades-old weight of our site, lighten the server load, increase the response time and simultaneously generate a site that optimizes based on the type of hardware being used by reader: desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile phones.
When CTH originally launched over a decade ago the theme was responsive to desktop and laptop computer users. Mobile platforms were in their infancy. Now more than half of website users are coming to sites from tablets or phones. The optimization phase will make those user experiences easier and more responsive.
The landing page of CTH will not change too much (example image on left). However, each of the top links “About Us”, “guidelines” etc will generate a different impression for the user. The right margin will be streamlined on the Main landing page, and we will be introducing an alliance of allies to replace the old-school blogroll.
Most of the decisions for the layout, font and navigability have been worked out; and now the coding is underway to generate the final product. Once that is established we will run it through the paces on the test site before switching over; much like the process we used when we switched from WordPress/Automattic to our own server network.
Several website operators have reached out asking us to provide details on the infrastructure being used to stay “anti-fragile”, meaning outside the reach of big tech. There may come a day when that information is possible to share, but it will not be in the near future. CTH is operating with an abundance of caution in the era of deplatforming and targeting.
We are aware the eye of sauron, ie Google, has already targeted CTH 2.0 to eliminate traffic and site visits. However, fortunately for us we have a long history of readership and only around 7 percent of total traffic was dependent on Google as a search value.
In what has been described as an “extraordinary situation” in the modern era, over 85 percent of CTH traffic is direct. Users and readers come directly to CTH from their browser. In the era of deplatforming this is a huge benefit.
CTH is a community of people; we take our responsibility for stewardship of our community very seriously. Privacy is the foundation of all systems we are using and no site features generates any data collection on any Treehouse guest.
The optimization phase should be complete in the next two weeks. Readers will be kept aware of the countdown to the change-over. You won’t really notice too much difference from the front side, but there will be a noted faster response rate. Additionally, some of the bugs we encountered, literally because we had to move so fast to generate CTH 2.0 – and only had two weeks to move 10 years of massive files, will be worked out.
Again, I thank you for your continued support as we put the final touches on CTH 2.0 as a relaunched site outside the reach of the tech control agents. This entire move has been a painstaking time-suck to do it right. Everyone has reference points for places that did it wrong… we are blessed to have incredible assistance from people with buckets of foresight.
Remember, YOU are what matters. This community is what matters. Retaining our ability to connect in fellowship and discuss the issues in a respectful and honest manner is our priority. We are in the majority. They control the majority of systems that allow us to see the scale of our assembly. Tech’s control effort to remove voices is directly related to their need to retain the false impressions put forth by ideological comrades.
The truth has no agenda, and people are beginning to see now just how far ahead CTH was within our explanations of the people and institutional motives in the world of politics. Unfortunately, we have been very accurate with our predictions of “who”, “why”, “when and how”, the people and systems would activate against our constitutional republic. However, in the end they will fail and we, a freedom loving people, will succeed.
Don’t forget to live your best life. Nothing aggravates the totalitarian-left more than seeing joy amid the majority of people within a nation they are trying to destroy. Engage your family, friends and community with optimism – and prepare; because the best is yet to come.
Mike Lindell (MyPillow guy) was being interviewed by Newsmax about Big Tech targeting and the suspension of his Twitter account. As soon as Lindell remarked about why he was targeted, Newsmax host Bob Sellers interrupts to deliver a legal message from the broadcaster.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced today his administration will start confronting the manipulation of Big Tech and their control over speech. In addition to outlining the bias now brutally obvious, DeSantis outlined measures including a ban on the censorship of political candidates, and mandatory opt-outs of content filters for citizens of the Sunshine State.
“What began as a group of upstart companies from the west coast has since transformed into an industry of monopoly communications platforms that monitor, influence, and control the flow of information in our country and among our citizens, and they do this to an extent hitherto unimaginable.”
DeSantis also outlines the sales of consumer data by Big Tech providers and the absence of any control over privacy. This is a great presentation and press conference.
The likely 2024 leading candidate field still looks like this….
Both Twitter and Facebook really should be shut down for what they have done is cleverly transforming themselves from a “platform” into a media organization. All the media from New York Times to ABC News and CNN can be sued for putting out false information that damages a person. Under Section 230, an internet platform is exempt because it was not intended to be liable for what others are posting. However, once they crossed the line into the moderation of content removing things they politically disagreed with, they are no longer a “platform” but have become a media outlet and as such, they should be subject to lawsuits.
What Facebook and Twitter have done to the internet is a crime and they should be shut down. They can reorganize as media companies, but they have abused their very purpose and they have violated that fiduciary duty they owed to the shareholders. Indeed, an enterprising attorney should file a major class-action lawsuit against them for using the capital of shareholders for personal political gain. They did not raise money with the object to censor what everyone says. Therefore, they have altered the purpose of their companies and raised money falsely.
Because of their political corruption, they have destroyed the freedom of the internet and what Section 230 was intended to protect. While they shut down Parler claiming they did not moderate their content and thus allowed people to organize for the Capital riots, such organization is also then the job of the government to monitor – not for Parler to moderate. A public forum is a place where people can freely talk. Once you cross the line into moderation, then you are a media company. Hence Fox can have only conservatives and CNN can have only socialist. That is the freedom of the press, but that freedom is not without immunity.
What Facebook and Twitter have done has undermined the entire internet. Any regulation coming down the line MUST draw the line between moderation and free speech. Section 230 should apply and continue provided there is no moderation. If we see just the real of Section 230, then we can start filing lawsuits against Wikipedia which is also highly subject to propaganda.
