The steady march toward totalitarianism continues while the majority party on Congress sits on its hands and the MSM seems meekly resigned to its own demise.

Earlier today, President Trump tweeted:

That would be fine with newly-minted Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who in June floated the idea of a state-run news channel.

In private, Scaramucci seemed to have at least entertained the idea of the top communications post since June. Speaking at former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s private retreat in Deer Valley, Utah, last month, Scaramucci said that he believed the White House was faltering in part because the communications director job was empty and that communicating directly with the public was the key imperative of this White House, according to one attendee.

If he were in the role, Scaramucci continued, he would consider starting a daily administration “television” broadcast at 7 a.m., complete with a desk on the White House lawn and guests that included Democratic leaders.

And from the Devil’s own cloaca comes the report that Breitbart News has the elimination of the MSM as its ultimate goal.

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart News’ Washington Political Editor, gave a speech entitled “Combating Fake News: Replacing Establishment Media” at the Heritage Foundation in Washington on Wednesday.

“The goal eventually is the full destruction and elimination of the entire mainstream media. We envision a day when CNN is no longer in business. We envision a day when the New York Times closes its doors. I think that day is possible,” he said in his speech to the Phyllis Schlafly Collegians Leadership Summit.

While the GOP-controlled Congress sits on its hands and Trump becomes more and more unhinged in his behavior and his media lackeys are telling the sheep that “everything is fine,” the idea of this White House controlling the news should send a chill down every American’s spine.
