my last article, “The Deplorables – Who We Are And What We Want,” I
examined the basic philosophies that define what I call the liberty movement;
the same group of Americans that Hillary Clinton admonishes as part of her
“basket of deplorables.”
It is important to recognize that only foolish progressives
actually take Clinton’s claims at face value. Clinton seeks to characterize a
large subset of conservatives as narrow-minded when she mentions the “deplorables.”
But, it is how she defines “narrow-minded” that is the crux of the thing.
When people like her talk about “racists,” they are referring to
conservatives who want a secure southern border. When they talk about
“Islamaphobes,” they are referring to people who want to stop Islamic refugees
from being bused into the country without being vetted or philosophically and
morally acclimated to our way of life. When they talk about sexists, they are
usually referring to all males in general, because remember, social justice
warriors (SJWs) claim that we are “subconsciously sexist,” even if we think we
are fair to women. When they talk about homophobes, they are referring to
Christian bakers who do not want to participate in services for gay weddings
despite the fact that they should be perfectly free to refuse association with
anyone at any time for any reason.
What Clinton and social justice lunatics are really referring to
when they use these attacks are those people who want to be free to think and
do as they see fit as long as they are not violating the constitutional rights
of others. No one in Hillary’s basket is actually narrow-minded, but she and
her cronies pigeonhole them as narrow-minded anyway.
Clinton is not actually worried about real racists, or real
sexists or real homophobes. What she and the establishment are worried about
are true conservatives, because our principles are not built on hate; they are
built on reason and truth. It’s easy to defeat a movement driven by hate; it’s
next to impossible to defeat a movement driven by truth.
It is absolutely essential for liberty activists to understand
that the goal of the establishment will be to redefine the core of our
movement. If they can repaint us as hateful, then we can be beaten. If they can
fool us into acting against our principles in the name of winning by any means,
then once again, we can be beaten. If we are able to retain our principles and
repel the propaganda, then we will NEVER be beaten. Even the greatest war
machines on Earth can be crushed by the force of a principled rebellion.
readers know well, I do not hold much optimism for America in the short term.
Our economic status is dismal. In my article, “Brexit Aftermath – Here’s What Happens Next,” I
warned that global markets would be experiencing a slow grinding decline into
the U.S. elections. This is now occurring. It is my belief that international
financiers and central banks will pull stimulus support from the global economy
just before or just after the elections. I believe that the establishment will
attempt to blame conservative movements for the fiscal crisis they created.
By extension, and as I have been predicting for many months, I
believe that Donald Trump will be allowed into the White House. Whether Trump
is aware of this dynamic or not, I do not know. The point is, our fight is just
beginning, and it has nothing to do with a Trump presidency.
The U.S. cannot be saved from the financial crisis; instability
is a mathematical certainty. It is how we respond to this instability
that will determine our success or failure. Here is what we “deplorables”
must accomplish in the next decade if we are to rebuild America and defeat
End To Economic Harmonization
Economic harmonization is nothing more than a globalist phrase
meaning the socialist redistribution of wealth. Globalists and progressives
will assert that capitalism is the cause of all our ailments. They will say it
leads to an unfair allocation of wealth into the coffers of a select few
through the “natural” evolution of corporate power. In reality, most socialist
nations work side by side with corporations, and even the existence of the
legal corporate model is owed to government interference in free markets. That
is to say, there is nothing natural about corporations.
It was western governments that fabricated special legal
protections for corporations including corporate personhood and limited
liability. Without government protection, corporations could not exist at their
current level of dominance. Therefore, bigger government and more government
intervention in free markets will likely only serve to secure even greater
empires for the corporate elite.
These empires can only be dismantled by removing government as a
factor in free markets and allowing true competition in business to return
instead of corporate favoritism. As a part of this shift, the middle class must
be allowed to thrive through innovation and production. Taxation designed to
redistribute wealth only seems to harm burgeoning entrepreneurs and stifles
their ability to use good ideas to compete with larger businesses and their
Economic harmonization will eventually result in equality — it
will make everyone equally poor. Only a handful of elites will ever be able to
pursue economic success within this kind of framework.
Of Forced Multiculturalism
We’re tired of Cloward-Piven strategies used by cultural
Marxists to undermine western principles and heritage. The bottom line is, some
cultures are completely incompatible and they should not be roommates. Are we
racist for holding this view? No, we’re just being practical. One look at the
scheisse-storm hitting Europe right now and only an idiot or a Leftist with an
agenda would argue that mass immigration of contrary cultures is a good idea.
Uncontrolled migrations of peoples from socialist nations into
nations that desire free markets will only make the effort towards free markets
impossible. Illegal immigration by people who only want taxpayer-funded
entitlements and that import their socialist ideals as they invade is counter
to the health of a liberty-based model.
Harshly theocratic cultures also will not be able to integrate
into a society that respects individual freedom. Social justice groups assume
that religious freedom requires us to remain apathetic in the face of unchecked
theocratic immigration (as long as it is anything other than Christian).
But, potential immigrants and illegal immigrants do not have legal rights under
the U.S. Constitution. Religious freedom has nothing to do with immigration.
For example, fundamentalist Islamic culture does not mix with
the traditional Western ideals of liberty and free market participation.
Leftists are willfully blind to the distinction. Globalists
understand the problem full well and they intend to exploit it. Their goal is
to import counter-ideologies en masse in order to annihilate the last vestiges
of the West.
Why? Because this is about eliminating the final obstacle to
total globalization. They seek to wash out conservative and classical liberal
thinking to make way for a collectivist system that outlaws sovereign
philosophies as “barbaric.” It is not exactly an “ethnic cleansing;” more like
an ideological cleansing of true conservativism.
We aren’t going to allow that.
This is why many in the liberty movement do in fact support a
ban on all immigration into Western nations until the damage done by the
multicultural cabal can be mitigated. Some may argue for a limited ban on the
immigration of certain groups (including Muslims) and this is an issue where
the “deplorables” diverge.
I personally don’t know how such a selective ban could be
enforced without an insanely large, intrusive and expensive immigration
bureaucracy designed to investigate and weed out millions of people not allowed
under such a law. A simpler solution would be to freeze ALL immigration for a
period of time (perhaps 10 years or more).
This would eliminate the need for the U.S. Citizenship And
Immigration Services (USCIS). The $3.2 billion allocated to that entity could
be spent better securing U.S. borders.
Frankly, there is nothing wrong with denying citizenship to
immigrants for a period of time. The extreme left acts as if open immigration
into our country is some kind of human right. It’s not.
Inclusive Republican Party
It is perfectly healthy to be discriminating against ideologies
and people that are destructive to inherent freedoms. I remember after Barack
Obama took office for a second term that the common argument by Democratic and
Republican elites alike was that it was “time for the Republican Party to be
more inclusive” if they ever wanted to win the White House again. What that
really means in translation is, it was time for the Republican Party to move
completely away from conservative values and be more like the Left.
In reality, the Republican Party needs to stop accommodating
socialist and globalist ideals and be more selective about who its friends are,
and who its leaders are. Either that or the party needs to go the way of
smallpox and die so that more honest political organizations can take its
Eradication Of Language Policing
We “deplorables” have seen political correctness and social
justice fear mongering turn our society into a simpering cesspool of terrified
effeminate spineless men, deluded miserable vitriolic women who think they are
men, and the rest of us who are supposed to walk on eggshells whenever the PC
police are around while being sure to use the “proper pronouns.” I think not.
I think instead, the deplorables are going to say whatever the
hell we feel like saying. Why should we concern ourselves with the irrational
feelings of others? Why should we censor ourselves just to satisfy the ignorant
notion that language shapes environment? Language is irrelevant to our internal
monolog. Changing the language is not going to change our souls. Thus,
controlling it is pointless and only serves to oppress the public.
We’re not going to refer to anyone by a gender other than what
their genetics dictate. We don’t care if you wear make-up and a wig and a
tampon. If you were born with a Y chromosome, then you are a man. Your personal
freedoms do not include the right to force others to recognize you as a woman,
a “trans,” a diva, a porpoise, etc. Your feelings do not matter. We are no
longer going to participate in your gender role-play fantasies.
Some of us may at times play with race-related jokes and have fun
at the expense of other groups. We might argue that women actually don’t make
very good Ghostbusters or that movies pontificating about slavery are becoming
extraordinarily boring. We will probably refer to illegal immigrants as illegal
immigrants and stare at beautiful women like we have x-ray vision.
Understand, there is nothing you can do to stop us, so you might
as well spend your time doing something more constructive, like dropping out of
gender studies and enrolling in a real college course.
Recognition Of Victim Group Status
For decades now it has become trendy for anyone besides white
heterosexual males to blame all their failures on white heterosexual males.
With all the gnashing of teeth over “white male privilege,” we might forget
that the only groups with privileges under the law are victim groups. So much
government preference is being given to these groups that almost everyone is
now clamoring to categorize themselves as a victim in some sense.
The “transgender” movement is the culmination of this insanity;
primarily because there is no such thing as a transgender person except the
extremely rare occasion when someone is born with both male and female
genitalia. Gender is biological, it is not fluid. You cannot argue with nature
about your gender. Laws that govern gender issues should follow biological
standards, not hollow psychological standards.
Today, anyone can simply say they are a victim group by virtue
of what amounts to a mental illness. It is time to stop treating this mental illness
as a civil rights issue. In turn, it is also time to stop the government from
designating privileges to groups based on arbitrary victimhood. Everyone today
has equal rights under the law. Everything else should be based on merit. If
you fail, then it is your own fault. To foster the notion in our society that
the evil white man is to blame for all the inadequacies of every loser in the
world is to do more harm to those losers than good. Instead, let them take
responsibility for their failings so that they might actually strive to do
There are only a few reasonable purposes behind government — to
defend the inborn liberties of the populace, to repel foreign invaders and to
secure a sound monetary framework. That’s about it. But while we deplorables
see these as limited powers and responsibilities, socialists and globalists see
these as excuses for an infinitely expanding government behemoth.
For example, you can build a functioning military based on the
militia model, in which every able-bodied citizen rises to the defense of their
community and nation in the event of an attack. This would be a cost-effective
and less intrusive model.
Or, you can build a massive standing army with hundreds of bases
around the world and a police state here at home, all funded by an
unsustainable fiat money and debt system. This would be the big government
model, which socialists argue is what government should do to fulfill its role.
The government can also be used to force private associations in
the name of protecting the “rights” of others. A Christian taxpayer might be
forced to fund entities they oppose, like Planned Parenthood (which receives
around $500 million in tax dollars per year). This is the problem with
open-ended nanny government; the individual freedom to associate is violated in
the name of protecting the victim status of others.
This comes from a “fluid interpretation” of the Constitution and
the role of government that allows expansion to be rationalized. To put an end
to this would require we “deplorables” to assert a literal and limited
The establishment has spent the better part of the past 30 years
trying to convince the world that globalism is a natural extension of the free
market. It’s not. The fact is, globalism is a system thrust upon the people,
not an organic evolution of economics.
True free market philosophy would dictate that if a model is
destroying the wealth standards of a society, that society would naturally
abandon it. If a model is elevating corporations, which are a product of
government charter and are artificially supported by taxpayer dollars, then
this is not conducive to real competition. If a model is allowing those same
government chartered corporations to export jobs while destroying any chance
for smaller competitors to fill the void through unfair taxation and other
laws, then this creates economic instability. Without government intervention,
globalism would not exist, because no society with a free market would
naturally seek to destroy itself.
The “deplorables” want the end of all welfare, including
corporate welfare and the concept of the “too big to fail” company. We want the
end of government intervention in business and special favors for corporate
elites. We also want the end of central banking and fiat debt based currency.
It’s funny, but the mainstream media constantly accuses us of seeking an unfair
world, but we are actually the only group of people working on a level playing
This concept terrifies progressives and corporate elites alike
because without a socialist welfare system and special treatment for victim
groups and companies, all success would then rely on merit. This means they
would have to work harder than most, or be smarter than most or be more
naturally gifted than most in order to be more prosperous than most. Take a
look at the millennials permeating the halls of universities
today — those that espouse socialist ideals –and you will find
yourself struggling to identify a single person with exceptional merit or work
Take a look at all the banks and corporate monstrosities that
should have collapsed eight years ago due to terrible business
practices. Under a free market, they would be failures, and rightly so.
As mentioned in my first article on the “deplorables,” these
changes– which represent a redress of grievances over decades of American
corruption –will not take place without years of struggle and sacrifice.
Again, this is not about a Trump presidency or any other future election. This
is about action on the part of regular men and women, average conservatives,
every day. This is about self-sufficiency, localized economies, the return of
individual producers, the refusal to comply with social justice-based laws and
legislation, the return of community-based security rather than reliance on
state and federal security, local efforts for border security, the punishment
of criminal financial institutions, etc.; all of which will probably come at
the cost of a fight with the establishment.
While you are welcome to vote for whatever candidate you please,
remember that central leadership is not the solution. Self-leadership is the
solution. We do not need a hero on a white horse. The future is in OUR hands.
Only by the efforts of millions of liberty champions in large and small ways
can America return to prosperity, and to freedom.
Social Nationalist Party representative Tarek Ahmad says that the war in Syria
has reached a dead end, with the intervention of foreign powers turning the
situation into a chaotic mess. Moreover, the politician says that Syria is just
one front in a Third World War being waged by Washington and its allies.
The Social Nationalist Party is one of Syria's oldest and largest parties. Up
to 8,000 members of its armed branch, known as 'the Eagles of the Whirlwind',
have successfully fought alongside the Syrian Army against Islamist militants,
including Daesh. At the same time, the party has remained a key member of the
Popular Front for Change and Liberation, a bloc of opposition parties in the
Speaking to Sputnik, party representative Tarek Ahmad said that the military
situation in the country has come to an impasse, with the political crisis only
fueled and intensified due to the intervention of multiple uninvited regional
and global powers.
Commenting on the intensification of the conflict between Damascus, its allies,
and the United States, following the US-led coalition's attack on Syrian forces
in Deir ez-Zor last week, Ahmad warned that it's important to understand that
the US position in Syria is tactical – not strategic.
"The US's goal is not limited to Syria," the politician emphasized.
"The Syrian front is not the goal in and of itself. We need to look at
this issue objectively, and to admit that a Third World War is taking place in
Syria, one which is led by the US and its allies – even if these allies are
simultaneously victims as well."
"America's main objective," according to Ahmad, "is to bring any
world power that threatens them under control. Consequently, [Washington] is
waging a war with these powers; and these powers include China and
Americans should hope and pray and vote
for the end of global US hegemony, because it is bad for the USA and worse for
Americans. The war in Syria is directly connected to the war in Ukraine, as
both wars are being waged for the same reason. And while Russia and her allies
are defeating the imperial USA and her allies in the Syria, and have fought
them to an advantageous standstill in Ukraine, China is quietly expanding her
strategic position in Africa and the Pacific.
This is why the neocons are so desperate to elect Hillary Clinton. They want to
double-down on the wars their proxies are losing, and send substantial American
forces into both Syria and Ukraine in order to defeat the Russian proxies
there. Their two problems are that while US troops can defeat Russian troops,
the Russian proxies are better than the US proxies in both Syria and Ukraine,
and Russia can directly operate in both Syria and Ukraine while the USA cannot.
Donald Trump is smart enough to avoid fighting Russia and he understands that
the USA has no legitimate national interests in either Syria or Ukraine. That
is the real reason the neocon establishment is so hysterical about his increasing
prospects for election, and why they are publicly throwing the full weight of
their support to Hillary Clinton. They are entirely willing to risk a
Syracuse-level disaster under a Clinton administration, which is something that
should terrify any sober, historically-aware American.
Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan are already lost to the USA and have accepted
the reality of Chinese regional dominance. Korea and the Philippines will
likely be the next to do so; Korean unification will probably take place before
2030 in an attempt to mitigate Chinese dominance, while Taiwan will presumably
reunite with China around that time. The Chinese are playing their cards with
their customary patience, allowing Russia to keep the USA occupied while they
improve their ability to force the US out of their own near-abroad.
One major potential flashpoint for China is Malaysia, where Islamic
civilization confronts Sinic civilization. But that offers little potential to
relieve the growing strategic pressure on the tottering US military hegemony.
On a related note, The Saker looks at the most likely options available to the
the US comes to realize that its policy sending MANPADs to Syria did not work,
it will have only one last card to play: attempt to impose a no-fly zone over
The good news is that judging by this exchange, US generals understand that any
such US move would mean war with Russia. The bad news is that the Neocons seem
to be dead-set on exactly that. Since such an event has now become possible, we
need to look at what exactly this would entail.
The way the US doctrine mandates to impose a no-fly zone is pretty
straightforward: it begins with an intensive series of USAF and USN cruise
missile strikes and bombing raids whose aim is to disable the enemy air
defenses and command and control capabilities. At this stage heavy jamming and
anti-radiation missile strikes play a key role. This is also when the
Americans, if they have any hope of achieving a tactical surprise, will also
typically strikes at enemy airbases, with a special emphasis on destroying
landed aircraft, runways and fuel storage facilities. This first phase can last
anything between 48 hours to 10 days, depending on the complexity/survivability
of the enemy air defense network. The second phase typically includes the
deployment of air-to-air fighters into combat air patrols which are typically
controlled by airborne AWACS aircraft. Finally, once the air defense network
has been destroyed and air supremacy has been established, strike fighters and
bombers are sent in to bomb whatever can be bombed until the enemy surrenders
or is crushed.
In Syria, this ideal scenario would run into several problems.
First, while there are only a few S-400/S-300 systems in Syria, the US has
never had to operate against them, especially not against the Russian version
of these formidable systems. Worse, Russia also has very long range radars
which will make it impossible for the USA to achieve a tactical surprise. Last
but not least, Russia also has deployed powerful electronic warfare systems
which are likely to create total chaos in key US command, control,
communications and intelligence systems.
Second, these S-400/S-300 systems are mostly located on what is legally
“Russian territory”: the Khmeimim airbase and the Slava-class or
Kuznetsov-class cruisers off the Syrian coast. The same goes for the key nodes
of the Russian communications network. If the Americans were crazy enough to
try to hit a Russian Navy ship that would open up the entire USN to Russian
Third, while Russia has deployed relatively few aircraft in Syria, and while
even fewer of them are air-to-air interceptors, those which Russia has deployed
(SU-30SM and SU-35) are substantially superior to any aircraft in the US inventory
with the possible exception of the F-22A. While the US will be able to
overwhelm the Russians with numbers, it will be at a steep cost.
Fourth, the use of USAF AWACS could be complicated by the possibility that the
Russians would decide to deploy their anti-AWACS very-long range missiles (both
ground launched and air launched). It is also likely that Russia would deploy
her own AWACS in Iranian airspace and protect them with MiG-31BMs making them a
very difficult target.
Fifth, even if the USA was somehow able to establish something like an general
air superiority over Syria, the Russians would still have three formidable
options to continue to strike Daesh deep inside Syria:
1) cruise missiles (launched from naval platforms of Tu-95MS bombers)
2) SU-34/SU-35 strike groups launched from Russia or Iranian
3) supersonic long range bombers (Tu-22M3 and Tu-160)
It would be exceedingly difficult for the US to try to stop such Russian
attacks as the USAF and USN have not trained for such missions since the late
Sixth, even a successful imposition of a no-fly zone would do little to stop
the Russians from using their artillery and attack helicopters (a difficult
target for fixed-wing aircraft to begin with). Hunting them down at lower
altitudes would further expose the USAF/USN to even more Russia air defenses.
A Syracuse in miniature. An attempted failure to impose a no-fly zone over
Syria won't break the US military, but it will destroy any remaining
perceptions of the USA's global superpower status.
Dyskord fails to grasp the importance
of priorities with regards to the survival of the West:
the talk of socialism as if its a valid form of government and wont lead to the
same failed mess it always degrades into is laughable. I mean seriously now
these socialists have jumped on the alt right bandwagon and under the guise of
white nationalism proclaim socialism a white concept that only failed because
of the inferior genetic or whatever faults of the OTHER races. Another pathetic
excuse for a truly foolish system of governance.
I have to ask Vox, if a group of alt white Communists start proclaiming us and
others false flag bearers will you accept them as valid by dint of being white
At this rate the alt right should it succeed will fall into the same traps
which led to the current decline.
I support the 14 words. I believe that in the history of the world only Western
Civilization has raised individual men and women to a level of safety, security
and freedom unprecedented in recorded history. I believe that nowhere outside
of Europe or current predominantly white former colonies like New Zealand and
Australia does democracy and Western values prevail. However not all white
peoples are equal. In fact today pale-skinned latino's are considered white. A
century ago Italians weren't considered white. The same regarding the Irish.
I'm not trying to dispose of the alt white or rally against them. By all means
lets work together. But this acceptance of Socialism as valid is IMO
disheartening. The rise of the right across Europe in my understanding is a
refutation of socialism and its fruits.
First, let's get one thing perfectly
clear. In any non-white West, some form of socialism may be the best case
scenario. It is more likely that there won't be an economic system that is
recognizable as a coherent Western system of any kind. After all, what is the
best way to describe the economies of Mexico, Colombia, Saudi Arabia, or
Second, identity always trumps ideology in the end. I don't accept socialist
economics any more than I accept the idea that 1+1=37 or that the Merovingian
dynasty was descended from Jesus Christ. But every mass movement needs the
participation of the left side of the bell curve too. The socialists of the
Alt-Right are no more harmful to the core cause of the Alt-Right at this point
in time than are the free traders, the monetarists, or the Keynesians. Their
collective economic ignorance is irrelevant.
The largest invasion in human
history is taking place and its consequences are going to shake the world for
decades, possibly centuries. The Men of the West have laid down their guard and
been invaded en masse by orcs and goblins and other creatures; even their
cradles are filled with changelings.
Consider this: there are fewer than 1,000 speakers of my tribe's language alive
today. It will be extinct by 2150. My tribe's blood is more diluted than that
of the Numenoreans of Middle Earth; it is entirely possible that one day, your
grandchildren's claim to be white will be scoffed at in much the same way some
scoff at my claim to be American Indian. The same thing has already been
happening to the American tribe for more than 150 years, to the point that the
very definition of "American" has already been altered beyond all
The propositionals and
universalists among us are wrong, Wrong, WRONG, because they refuse to read
history, refuse to listen to us, and refuse to pay any attention to what the
orcs and goblins themselves are saying. They believe, erroneously, that orcs
and goblins are not only no different under the skin, but also want to be men
just like them. But the truth is, they don't. Orcs and goblins want to continue
to be exactly what they are, they simply want to pillage and rule in the West
in exactly the same manner they do elsewhere.
As Sam Huntington noted
20 years ago, our values are not theirs:
The author of another cross-cultural survey of individualism and collectivism
similarly highlighted the dominance of individualism in the West compared to
the prevalence of collectivism elsewhere and concluded that “the values that
are most important in the West are least important worldwide.”
Not just less important, LEAST important. The West will not transform the
orcs or their values through its magic dirt. To the contrary, they will do as
immigrants have always done, and transform the West into the Not-West, just as
America has already been transformed into Not-America by not-Americans.
And yet, the Men of the
West not only will not fight the invaders, they will not even cease to open
their arms, their legs, their hearts, and their homes to them.
What we are witnessing, what we are participating
in, is nothing less than a civilizational mass suicide.
Migrants with recognised refugee status are holidaying in
the countries they supposedly “fled”, with their vacations funded by German
taxpayers, a newspaper has found. Newspaper Welt am Sonntag learnt that
migrants are returning to countries such as Syria, Afghanistan, and Lebanon for
holiday purposes, then travelling back to Germany where they continue to
receive comfortable welfare payments.
The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) has been aware for some
time that some recognised refugees are taking leisure trips to the very spots
they claim their lives are in danger.
The government body sent a written request to Berlin’s employment agencies in
June, asking that they report the travel arrangements of migrants granted
asylum holidaying in their countries of origin.
A spokeswoman for the Federal Employment Agency confirmed that “there are such
cases” but reports that there is “no analysis or statistics on this subject and
therefore we do not have information”.
It's time to
repatriate every single "refugee" and migrant that has claimed asylum
in Europe or the United States. They are invaders and economic parasites, they
are not "new Americans" or "new Germans" and they will
And the churches and charity
organizations who aided and abetted this treasonous, criminal activity should
be investigated, fined, and if they knowingly helped the migrants defraud the
public, have their licenses to operate removed.
As for those foolish enough
to claim that the West has to help them, keep in mind that Nigeria is on track
to have a population of 509 million by 2050 thanks to Western assistance. The
West needs to stop helping the global South now or it is going to have to
choose between a) mass slaughter and b) being completely overrun.
choose (a) of course. And all the blame for the bloodshed should be placed
directly on the heads and hands of the Churchians and do-gooders and aid
workers who made it possible. They fed the world. They let them know it was
Christmastime. And they guaranteed that considerably more people will
eventually starve or be slaughtered than would have died in the first place.
How on Earth do you think a bankrupt, invaded, infuriated West is going to be
in any position to help a global South that is more than 10 times worse off
than before anyway? Do any of you idiot do-gooders even think beyond later this
not talking about being cruel to be kind. I'm talking about letting events take
their course in order to avoid our children and grandchildren wading knee-deep
in blood in the future. And that's the rosy scenario.
For the last few
months I’ve had a question in my mind: Just what is George Soros up to? Because
I could not understand why a great capitalist speculator, a financial operator
who makes the Koch Brothers look like altar boys, would be interested in
funding a lefty activist group like Black Lives Matter. It didn’t compute.
But now I
understand. No doubt you readers already figured it out. Alas, I am not so
The light went
on when I was reading “Progressivism
Goes Global” by John Fonte and John Loo in National Review about the
plans of the progressive global governance guys. The key point is articulated
in a quote from Anne-Marie Slaughter, the head of policy and planning at the
State Department under Hillary Clinton. Her idea is that the “global
administrative state would work through the ‘coercive power of vertical
government networks pierce the shell of state sovereignty by making individual
government institutions -- courts, regulatory agencies, or even legislators --
responsible for implementation of rules created by a supranational institution.
Don’t you just
love that? The globalists get the power, and get to pull the strings behind the
national governments, and coerce them into doing their global will.
before the globalists ascend Mt. Olympus, they need to “pierce the shell” and
destroy the prestige and the power of the nation state; otherwise the national
governments will still have the power to tell the globalist gods to go pound
sand. How do the globalists do that?
They divide and conquer. They set the people in each nation state against each
other. They divide them up by class, by race, by gender, by tribe: Black Lives
Matter; La Raza; Human Rights Campaign, CAIR. With one ring to rule them all.
So that is why
George Sauron and all the top-tier foundations are funding groups like Black
Lives Matter. That is why the globalists are all in favor of unlimited
immigration. The more that the people in America think of themselves as black
or white or Hispanic or gay or Muslim rather than American, the easier it is
for the global elite to “pierce the shell of state sovereignty” while we are
all busy fighting each other.
So far so good.
But there is a problem, as the globalists are finding out, to their horror.
The problem with
globalism is what to do when things go wrong, as in the Euro, as in Muslim
rapists in Europe and no-go areas in Sweden.
In the nation
state, when things go wrong, the voters throw the rascals out and elect a new
government. They might elect a Roosevelt over a blundering Hoover. Nothing
changes, of course, unless they elect a Reagan, for the ruling class is still
the ruling class blundering from crisis to crisis; but at least the people have

globalist geniuses didn’t think of that, did you?
That is what
Enoch Powell meant when he said that the European project could not work
because there was no European demos, no European people. You need a
“people” when things go wrong, so the polity hangs together rather than
Right now, of
course, things are going wrong with the globalist project, and the
result is that the people in the various nation states in Europe are rallying
to politicians that want to re-establish the powers of the nation state to
throw the globalist rascals out. While they still can.
What luck that
the globalist project ran off the road so soon. Given another 20 years of
Soros-funded identity politics, with Muslim Lives Matter making Black Lives
Matter look like a walk in the park, the people of Europe would have split up
into squabbling racial and religious identities, and with things going wrong
and the failure of the globalist elite there would be no demos to throw the
globalists, progressives, and all the ships at sea. The whole point of
constitutions and laws and separation of powers and elections to secure the
consent of the governed is this. They help stop civil war. The political
furniture that you want to “pierce” is the way for the people to check their
rulers short of bloody civil war.
It is telling
that in the aftermath of the Charlotte Riots, President Obama is burbling
about white police officers learning about discrimination, and Hillary
Clinton is missing in action. It is Donald Trump that is calling for unity.
Donald Trump stands for Making America -- the nation state of Americans --
Great Again. Obama and Clinton are globalist progressives. They don’t care
about unity; they care about divide and conquer.
Update: In an emailed statement, the German
finance ministry told Bloomberg that the report on Deutsche Bank by German
weekly Die Zeit “is incorrect" adding that "the federal government
isn’t preparing any rescue plans. There are no grounds for such speculation.”
FINANCE MINISTRY DENIES DIE ZEIT REPORT ON DEUTSCHE BANK
GOVERNMENT ISN'T WORKING ON BANK RESCUE PLAN: MINISTRY
Only two more denials until it is unofficially confirmed.
It's all about Deutsche Bank this morning again, where after last night's
vigorous denial by CEO John Cryan, who told Bild that the troubled German
lender is not seeking a government bailout and that it's balance sheet is
solid, earlier this morning Germany's Zeit reported that the German government
is working on a contingency plan for Deutsche Bank. The German outlet writes
that possible scenarios apply in case Deutsche Bank AG needed capital injection
to cover litigation costs and include the option of German government taking a
Contingency plan envisages possible sales of Deutsche Bank units, with the
option of state guarantees to back the transactions if needed. One worst-case
scenario involving the government taking a 25% stake would apply only in
extreme emergency. All options are contingency planning and German govt hopes
Deutsche Bank won’t need any state aid.
Queried by Reuters, a Deutsche Bank spokesman referred to an interview Chief
Executive John Cryan gave German daily Bild on Wednesday and denied the report.
"At no point did I ask the chancellor for support. Neither did I suggest
anything like that," had told Cryan Bild in response to a different report
that said he had asked German Chancellor Angela Merkel for her support with a
$14 billion U.S. demand to settle claims it missold mortgage-backed securities.
Such a request would be "out of the question for us," Cryan said,
adding that he could not understand how "anyone could claim that."
Despite the preemptive denial, Zeit said that the German government is still
hoping Deutsche Bank will not need state support and only scenarios for a
potential rescue are being discussed so far.
In related news, it is calculated that the insanity can
last somewhere between eight and 68 months longer before it all crashes down.
The ECB and the BOJ, the two central banks most actively
monetizing debt currently, have 8 and 26 months respectively, if they do no
changes to their programs. However, if incremental easing is layered on, like
expanding the scope of their bond buying programs or purchasing equities even
more aggressively, the total rises substantially. The final answer: 68 months,
or just above 5 and a half years, in the case of the ECB, were it to
steamroll all political opposition and monetize virtually every possible bond
(and 20% of the equity market), and 48 months, or 4 years, in the case of the
How very strange! One would have thought those one
million new immigrants would have been good for the German economy....
As time has passed, I have realized that my ability to
easily defeat other intelligent, educated people in debate has considerably
less to do with my intelligence and more to do with what appears to be a higher
degree of curiosity, which doesn't actually have much, if anything, to do with
intelligence or formal education.
As has often been noted here, Man
is a rationalizing animal. And what I have increasingly noted of late is that
most people devote most of their intelligence to rationalizing what they already
think to be true than they do to figuring out what they think is not true. This
desire to rationalize rather than learn is, quite possibly, the intelligent
individual's biggest intellectual weakness.
Now, we all do it to varying degrees. But the more we do it, the more absurd
and indefensible and self-contradictory positions we will take. Thus we see the
monetarists seriously discussing the outlawing of paper money, evolutionists
denying the existence of species, anthropologists presenting literal fiction in
the place of history or archeological science, and Christians arguing the
virgin birth of a non-divine individual.
But this is only one form of
the rationalization process. The other one is to base one's opinion on
conclusions drawn from incomplete information, to argue on the basis of knowing
about something rather than genuinely knowing it. Those of us who have
graduated from good colleges are particularly susceptible to this, as we have
been introduced to a broad range of classics, we have listened to
lectures from professors deeply steeped in them so that we recognize them and
know a little bit about them,
but the truth is that we don't really know much of anything concerning their
Which is why we will so often see someone saying that Marx is wrong without
have the least conception of what he might be wrong about, declaring that
Fukuyama's declaration of the end of history is stupid on its face without
understanding what Fukuyama meant by "history" - and any would-be
intellectual should be humiliated upon the realization that his level of
knowledge doesn't rise to the level of a pop song by Jesus Jones from 26 years
ago - and appealing to all things "quantum" without even being able
to define "quantum mechanics".
Complicating this is the
common preference for binary thinking, or if you want to sound more
philosophical, Abelardian philosophy. "It is so or it is not so" is
the binary thinker's mantra; the concept of necessary, but not sufficient
eludes him. Consider two contrary examples from the comments on Huntington's
book, The Clash of Civilizations, yesterday.
"I suspect that it might be easier to start with
worship of blood, soil and nature and work up from there. The popularity
of paganism should be no mystery."
"I would go further, and say not only that Christianity is needed for
Western Civilization, I say Christianity IS Western Civilization. You can see
from that why the appeal of the Alt-Right, claiming that my racial identity
trumps my Church, is an idea not even worth discussing."
being directly opposed, both statements are equally silly, and both are
similarly ignorant. Anyone who has
read even part of Huntington's book will instantly recognize that neither
commenter has read it. The first comment violates the recounting of the history
of the various civilizations in general and Western civilization in particular.
Given that even a sophisticated religion such as Buddhism has proven
insufficient to support the development of a major civilization, and even the
highest, most noble forms of virtuous Roman paganism failed to compete
successfully with Christianity, it is obvious that working up from the sort of
pre-civilized animism that the commenter recommends would not be easier than
metaphorically taking whips to the temple and reforming the Christian churches.
In fact, it is improbable to the point of being a virtual impossibility.
As for the idea that Christianity IS Western Civilization, this is a historical
and definitional absurdity. While religion is much more important in defining
civilizations than the secular students of liberal democracy would like to
admit, a civilization is considerably more than its definitive religion. Thus, both the following
statements by Huntington are both true:
- People of the same race can be deeply divided by
civilization; people of different races may be united by
civilization....The crucial distinctions among human groups concern their
values, beliefs, institutions, and social structures, not their physical
size, head shapes, and skin colors.
- A civilization is the broadest cultural entity.
Villages, regions, ethnic groups, nationalities, religious groups, all
have distinct cultures at different levels of cultural
heterogeneity. It is defined both by common objective elements, such
as language, history, religion, customs, institutions, and by the
subjective self-identification of people. People have levels of identity:
a resident of Rome may define himself with varying degrees of intensity as
a Roman, an Italian, a Catholic, a Christian, a European, a Westerner. The
civilization to which he belongs is the broadest level of identification
with which he strongly identifies.
First, an individual's values, beliefs,
institutions, and social structures are heavily influenced by his race; race and
culture are deeply intertwined. Second, Christianity is not Western
civilization, it is merely one of the most important aspects of Western
civilization; as the Alt-Right sees it, Christianity is one of the three
necessary components. The idea that one's racial identity trumps one's religion
is not worth discussing because it is irrelevant, both to the Alt-Right and to
the civilizational paradigm. Both religion and race are necessary components of
a civilization, but are insufficient in themselves. This should be entirely
obvious from the start, given that neither religion nor race are recognized
synonyms for civilization.
Third, the fact that there are three other
major Christian civilizations besides Western civilization, Byzantine,
Orthodox, and Latin American, (to say nothing of minor Christian civilizations
such as Ethiopean) means that Western civilization cannot be Christianity and
Christianity cannot be Western civilization. That is an idea that is not
worth discussing, because it is as obviously and mathematically untrue as the
statement that 1+3.5=1.
Now, we can argue whether a society of Chinese Christians will be more Sinic
than Western or more Western than Sinic. I strongly incline towards the former
view myself, though I would not view the matter as completely unworthy of
discussion. But regardless, we should all be able to concur that it will not be
Japanese or Muslim, or, for that matter, neoliberal.
And furthermore, the civilizational paradigm tends to highlight why Alt-West
and Alt-White are not necessarily in competition with each other. Alt-White is
less an alternative to Alt-West than a subset of it, as Alt-West is focused on
the civilizational level, while Alt-White is focused on the national level.
However, it also indicates that the Alt-White is going to have to come to terms
with the necessity of Christianity to its own objectives if it is going to find
any success going forward.
It can, of course, reject the civilizational paradigm, but that is a suboptimal
response given the way it is increasingly clear that the civilizational
paradigm is vastly superior in explanatory and predictive terms to either the
bipolar superpower paradigm that preceded it or the universalist neoliberal
paradigm that was supposed to succeed the superpower model.
I am familiar with the concept expressed by Sam Huntington's civilizational
paradigm and have actually read the famous essay in Foreign Affairs called
"The Clash of Civilizations", I am a little embarrassed to say that I made the typical
college mistake of assuming that knowledge about the concept
was an adequate substitute for detailed knowledge of the
concept. Which is to say that I'd never read the book that is the expansion of
the esssay, which mistake I am presently correcting now.
It's a brilliant, brilliant book that goes well beyond the refutation of
Fukuyama's silly "History is Over and We're All Liberal Democrats
Now" paradigm and already it has me thinking about how the civilizational
paradigm affects the reality of the Alt-Right. And it occurs to me that one of the keys to the success
of the Alt-West is going to be a) Christians realizing that Churchianity is not
Christianity and driving it out of their institutions and places of worship
combined with b) non-Christians realizing that Christianity is, far from being a
societal negative, a societal necessity for any Western
Tom Howard's journey away
from Christianity into antiquity, then back again, is one that I expect will be
repeated by many an apostate, agnostic, and even atheist.
I was a boy, my upbringing as a Christian was forever being weathered by the
gale force of my enthusiasms. First, there were dinosaurs. I vividly remember
my shock when, at Sunday school one day, I opened a children’s Bible and found
an illustration on its first page of Adam and Eve with a brachiosaur. Six years
old I may have been, but of one thing – to my regret – I was rock-solid
certain: no human being had ever seen a sauropod. That the teacher seemed not
to care about this error only compounded my sense of outrage and bewilderment.
A faint shadow of doubt, for the first time, had been brought to darken my
With time, it darkened further still. My obsession with dinosaurs – glamorous, ferocious,
extinct – evolved seamlessly into an obsession with ancient empires. When I
read the Bible, the focus of my fascination was less the children of Israel or
Jesus and his disciples than their adversaries: the Egyptians, the Assyrians,
the Romans. In a similar manner, although I vaguely continued to believe in
God, I found Him infinitely less charismatic than my favourite Olympians:
Apollo, Athena, Dionysus. Rather than lay down laws and condemn other deities
as demons, they preferred to enjoy themselves. And if they were vain, selfish
and cruel, that only served to endow them with the allure of rock stars.
By the time I came to read Edward Gibbon and the other great writers of the
Enlightenment, I was more than ready to accept their interpretation of history:
that the triumph of Christianity had ushered in an “age of superstition and
credulity”, and that modernity was founded on the dusting down of
long-forgotten classical values. My childhood instinct to think of the biblical
God as the po-faced enemy of liberty and fun was rationalised. The defeat of
paganism had ushered in the reign of Nobodaddy, and of all the crusaders,
inquisitors and black-hatted puritans who had served as his acolytes. Colour
and excitement had been drained from the world. “Thou hast conquered, O pale
Galilean,” Swinburne wrote, echoing the apocryphal lament of Julian the
Apostate, the last pagan emperor of Rome. “The world has grown grey from thy
breath.” Instinctively, I agreed.
So, perhaps it was no surprise that I should have continued to cherish
classical antiquity as the period that most stirred and inspired me. When I
came to write my first work of history, Rubicon, I chose a subject that had
been particularly close to the hearts of the philosophes: the age of Cicero.
The theme of my second, Persian Fire, was one that even in the 21st century was
serving Hollywood, as it had served Montaigne and Byron, as an archetype of the
triumph of liberty over despotism: the Persian invasions of Greece.
The years I spent writing these studies of the classical world – living
intimately in the company of Leonidas and of Julius Caesar, of the hoplites who
had died at Thermopylae and of the legionaries who had triumphed at Alesia –
only confirmed me in my fascination: for Sparta and Rome, even when subjected
to the minutest historical inquiry, did not cease to seem possessed of the
qualities of an apex predator. They continued to stalk my imaginings as they
had always done – like a tyrannosaur.
Yet giant carnivores, however wondrous, are by their nature terrifying. The
longer I spent immersed in the study of classical antiquity, the more alien and
unsettling I came to find it. The values of Leonidas, whose people had
practised a peculiarly murderous form of eugenics, and trained their young to
kill uppity Untermenschen by night, were nothing that I recognised as my own;
nor were those of Caesar, who was reported to have killed a million Gauls and
enslaved a million more. It was not just the extremes of callousness that I
came to find shocking, but the lack of a sense that the poor or the weak might
have any intrinsic value. As such, the founding conviction of the Enlightenment
– that it owed nothing to the faith into which most of its greatest figures had
been born – increasingly came to seem to me unsustainable.
Howard learned is something I pointed out in a controverial WND column called
Morality of Rape", in which I noted that the very idea that
rape is wrong, let alone a crime against the state, is an intrinsically
Christian concept. The inescapable conclusion is that one simply cannot
separate religion from culture, much less from civilization; indeed, Huntington
observes that the strongest identifying element of the eight competing major
civilizations is, in fact, religion.
language, religion, way of life, were what the Greeks had in common and what
distinguished them from the Persians and other non-Greeks. Of all the objective
elements which define civilizations, however, the most important usually is
religion, as the Athenians emphasized. To a very large degree, the major
civilizations in human history have been closely identified with the world’s
great religions; and people who share ethnicity and language but differ in
religion may slaughter each other, as happened in Lebanon, the former Yugoslavia,
and the Subcontinent.
Tom Holland: Why I was wrong about Christianity
It took me a long time to
realize my morals are not Greek or Roman, but thoroughly, and proudly,
this vitriolic, unpredictable, outrageously entertaining presidential campaign
enters its final stages I find myself pondering what happens next. I was
reminded of the last scene in the 1972 movie, The Candidate. The movie is about
a young untested non-politician candidate for U.S. Senator in California who
puts his fate in the hands of a veteran political operative and overcomes a
double digit polling deficit to win a huge upset victory. His entire focus
during the campaign was to win. In the final scene of the movie he is standing
among the celebrating campaign staffers and the fawning press corp. with a
befuddled look on his face. He grabs his political consultant campaign manager
and pulls him into a room. As the press break into the room he asks, “What do
we do now?” The question goes unanswered and the movie ends.
chattering class on the boob tube is enthralled and aghast at every seizure,
collapse, and deplorable comment by the two most disliked presidential
candidates in U.S. history. The establishment and their corporate media
mouthpieces are perplexed and irate that Donald Trump has overcome their
propaganda campaign to be leading in the polls with 51 days to go. He is a
non-politician who was behind by double digits in the polls a month ago. He
hired professional political operatives who have molded his message, while his
opponent has been lying about her health, lying about selling access while
Secretary of State, and denigrating blue collar middle class Americans in
campaign speeches. The momentum is clearly in his favor and absent a major
gaffe during the debates he could win an unlikely come from behind victory in

of this highly improbable race between a reality TV star parody and a walking
corpse propped up by her establishment cronies in the media, Wall Street,
military industrial complex and smoke filled backrooms of D.C. The sole focus
of both campaigns is to disparage and destroy their opponent. The negative
attack ads will fill TV screens 24/7 for the remainder of this scorched earth
fight to the death. The debates will be nasty and venomous, with accusations
being hurled maliciously and with gusto. The corporate press corp., being the
mouthpieces for the establishment, has done their utmost to scorn, ridicule and
attempt to derail Trump’s march to the presidency.

of deplorables not inhabiting the liberal bastions of NYC, Washington DC, LA
and SF are ignoring the unabashed media crusade to destroy Trump. Trust in the
dying legacy media is at all-time lows. The linear thinking establishment has
failed to acknowledge the cyclical nature of history and will now reap the
whirlwind of consequences for their corrupt, greedy, traitorous actions.
myopic media is so fixated on the minutia and trivialities related to the
terribly flawed personalities of these Boomer candidates ascending to the
throne of the American empire, they fail to step back and understand the real
dynamics at work. When you comprehend the undercurrents of history it allows
you to interpret the current mood of the electorate using the perspective of
the Fourth Turning. This election is taking place in the eighth year of a
crisis period which is likely to last through the next decade. Written in 1996,
Strauss & Howe’s opus has been eerily prescient in predicting the start of
and progression of the fourth crisis period in America history, all separated
by approximately 80 years – a long human life.
next Fourth Turning is due to begin shortly after the new millennium, midway
through the Oh-Oh decade. Around the year 2005, a sudden spark will catalyze a
Crisis mood. Remnants of the old social order will disintegrate. Political and
economic trust will implode. Real hardship will beset the land, with severe
distress that could involve questions of class, race, nation and empire. The
very survival of the nation will feel at stake. Sometime before the year 2025,
America will pass through a great gate in history, commensurate with the
American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression
and World War II.” –
Strauss & Howe

leading to the worldwide financial collapse in September 2008. There is no
denying a Crisis mood overtook the country in 2008 and after a temporary lull
brought about by the unprecedented money printing scheme by the Federal Reserve
and central bankers across the globe, the mood has been darkening rapidly as
this election approaches. The fabric of the country is being shredded along
racial, class, religious and party lines, as real hardship spreads across the land.
Soros backed Black Lives Matter has turned into a domestic terrorist
organization spurring young black men to ambush and slaughter police officers
and innocent bystanders. Radicalized Islamic terrorists are committing mass
murder, setting off bombs, and attacking non-believers. The corporate oligarch

effectively impoverished and destroyed the working middle class. Both political

back control of a country, which has been captured in a silent coup by Deep

thirst for wealth, power and control, regardless of the impact on average
darkening mood of the country has cast a shadow over this election, as the
corrupt political establishment and their corporate media collaborators are
failing in their unrelenting propaganda campaign to destroy Trump. The
“experts”, pollsters, and pundits are shocked and appalled that a loud mouthed
non-politician TV personality could possibly be on the verge of winning the
linear thinkers can’t understand why their playbook of lies, misinformation,
pointless social justice issues and a myriad of other inane distractions aren’t
working this time. They fail to acknowledge that history is cyclical and we’ve
entered the phase when generational cohorts are aligned for dramatic sweeping
change. The data is there for all to see, but those benefiting from the current
perverted paradigm will not be swept aside without a bloody fight.
on recent Gallup polls, the establishment probably realizes they’ve gone too
far, but their insatiable desire for mammon and supremacy over the levers of
finance, politics, and corporate share cropping, has blinded them to the
reality of the devastation they’ve wrought on Main Street America. Average
American families have seen their standard of living relentlessly driven into
the ground by Federal Reserve created inflation designed to benefit their fraud
loving Wall Street benefactors, greedy corporate executives, and psychopath
politicians who’ve promised voters $200 trillion more than they can deliver.
Good paying blue collar jobs have been shipped overseas by Ivy League MBA CEO’s
who use wage arbitrage models to calculate how to optimize their stock price
and executive bonuses. This is why the real median household income is lower
than it was in 1999 and about equal to what it was in 1989.
those not occupying academic ivory towers or gleaming office palaces in
downtown Manhattan, life in the trenches is brutal, back breaking and
untenable. With no wage growth in a quarter of a century, crushing healthcare
costs due to Obamacare, rents skyrocketing as home prices have been
artificially boosted to save Wall Street bankers, government run education and
financing leading to a millennial debt crisis, and a Federal Reserve destroying
the finances of senior citizens, savers, pension plans, and bondholders, how
could anyone other than myopic oligarchs and their cronies expect average
Americans to keep taking it without fighting back?
it any wonder that 73% of Americans are dissatisfied with the way things are
going in the country? This is a massive decline from the 71% satisfied readings
of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Do you think this might have something to
do with the depressionary economic conditions being experienced by the majority
of Americans since 2001?
the Wall Street banking cabal has been ransacking, pillaging and defrauding the
American people since 2000 with their fabricated internet boom and the largest
control fraud in world history – their mortgage/housing Ponzi scheme, it is entirely
logical for tens of millions of hard working Americans in flyover country to be
outraged and ready to throw the bums out. The propagandists who have worked
tirelessly to consciously and systematically manipulate the public mind through
social engineering in government controlled public schools, mass media
messaging, and the constant use of fear by government apparatchiks, believe
their control of these societal mechanisms is beneficial for our country and
“invisible government”, the true ruling power in this country, has used their
Bernaysian propaganda techniques to mold the minds, desires, beliefs, ideas,
and tastes of the masses for decades, but they’ve gone too far, stolen too
much, and pushed the average American to the brink. The middle class is
steadily being destroyed, along with hope for a better tomorrow, as reflected
in Gallup polling data.
former middle class citizens of this country aren’t sure who screwed them over
because they have been busy trying to make a living, while simultaneously being
distracted by iGadgets, 700 cable TV stations, social media, sports and myriad
of other bread and circus diversions. They’ve been brainwashed to believe the
two organized political parties offer them a choice. The two parties are
co-conspirators in the creation of this welfare/warfare empire of debt.
2000, we’ve had eight years of a Republican president, eight years of a
Democrat president, with both parties having control of Congress at various
points over the sixteen years. The national debt, after 211 years of this
country’s existence, was $5.7 trillion in 2000. Both parties are responsible
for the 342% increase over the last sixteen years to $19.5 trillion. Democrats
agreed to never ending warfare in exchange for Republican support for an
expansion of the entitlement state. Meanwhile, the country’s GDP only rose 79%
over the same time frame.
puppet politicians in Washington D.C. have only done what their “invisible
government” puppeteers have instructed them to do. They don’t answer to the
voters or their local constituents. They answer to Wall Street bankers, the
military industrial complex, mega-corporation CEOs, and shadowy billionaire
oligarchs who fund their corrupt existence. These feckless politician hacks
could never have added $13.8 trillion to the national debt in the last sixteen
years and run the country’s unfunded welfare liabilities to $200 trillion
without the Wall Street controlled privately owned Federal Reserve manning the
printing presses and manipulating interest rates to enrich their “invisible
government” benefactors. They have inflated away 97% of the dollar’s purchasing
power since their shadowy creation in 1913. They are single biggest reason real
wages have not advanced since 1971. They are the reason the top 0.1% now have
the highest percentage of the national wealth since 1929.
no mistake about it, everything the Federal Reserve has done since the Wall
Street created worldwide financial collapse in 2008 has been to benefit their
Too Big To Trust Wall Street owners, the rich and powerful oligarchs, and the
biggest borrowers on the planet – the U.S., Japan and EU governments. The $3.8
trillion of QE was funneled into the vaults of the Wall Street bankers so they
could pretend their insolvent balance sheets were solvent. The true purpose was
to drive stock prices higher in order to subsidize Wall Street, corporate
executives, and the .01% who own most of the stocks, while giving the appearance
of economic recovery.
inflation created by QE drove the middle class standard of living lower as
energy, food, rent, home prices, health insurance, tuition costs and taxes rose
relentlessly. Wall Street and their establishment crony capitalist parasites
hit the jackpot in this rigged game, while Main Street lost again. The
Fed’s easy money policies are why since 1999 home prices have risen 76% while
household median real income has fallen by over 1%. Pricing millennials out of
the housing market has led to the lowest home ownership rate since 1965.
the Fed and Wall Street concocted a scheme whereby Wall Street used the free
money provided by the Fed to buy up millions of foreclosed homes at fire sale
prices and rent them back to the poor schlubs who had been recently evicted by
the very same Wall Street banks. The engineered shortage of home inventory led
to soaring rent costs for everyone. This is called winning by the
interest rates to 0% again benefited those with the most debt: Wall Street
banks, mega-corporations, and the U.S. government. It destroyed the finances of
senior citizens living off their savings, penalized people for saving, and
incentivized heavily indebted consumers to borrow more. How did allowing Wall
Street banks to borrow at 0% so they could charge consumers 15% on credit card
balances and 6% on auto loans benefit consumers? Did the government enslaving
young people in $1.3 trillion of student loan debt with only low paying service
jobs available at graduation, benefit anyone other than for profit diploma
Fed supposedly instituted their ZIRP as an emergency measure during an economic
conflagration not seen since the Great Depression. According to the government
and the Fed, we are now in the seventh year of an economic recovery with low
unemployment, record corporate profits, household income jumping the most in
history, and the stock market at all-time highs. If this fantasy narrative was
true, the Fed’s discount rate would be 3% to 4% – not .25%. We are lost in a
blizzard of lies.
this point in the cycle only the truly cognitively deficient, Ivy League professors
and lapdogs for the ruling class believe the tripe, disguised as government
sanctioned economic data, being peddled by those desperately trying to retain
hegemony over the country. The real people living in the real world know
unemployment is not 4.9%, but north of 15%. They know inflation is not really
1.1%, but north of 5%. They know GDP is a warped measure of economic health, as
soaring healthcare expenditures boosts it and using a real measure of inflation
would reveal recessionary readings. They know Obamacare has driven their health
insurance costs higher and made their care worse. They know “free trade”
agreements like NAFTA and TPP result in their jobs being shipped overseas by
corporate conglomerates. They know taxes and government fees ceaselessly march
higher. They know the government has spent $4 trillion conducting an unwinnable
war on terror by waging undeclared wars around the world and we’re less safe
than we were in 2001.

them, but to protect the Deep State. The social justice red herrings are meant
to distract the populace and keep them chasing their tails, while the looting
and pillaging of the nation’s wealth continues unabated.
hard-working, traditional, family oriented households, not ensconced in the
liberal elite bastions of NYC, DC, LA, or SF, have lost trust in politicians
and their fellow Americans. The largest percentage of Americans in history
distrusts all politicians and the government institutions run by these corrupt
sycophants. Conservatives think liberals are brain dead. Liberals think
conservatives have no heart. The social fabric of the nation is in tatters.
is absolutely no desire for compromise on any issue. The insurgent crusades of
Sanders on the left and Trump on the right have shattered establishment
illusions they could continue to hand pick captured cronies who would do their
bidding. The linear thinkers in the mainstream media are stunned their
propaganda campaign to destroy Trump and elevate the choice of the
establishment – Clinton – has failed miserably. It shouldn’t be a surprise
based upon the Gallup polling data.
an ongoing depression for the majority of American households, extreme
dissatisfaction with the course of the country, and complete distrust of
establishment politicians, it would be highly unlikely for the people to select
the ultimate corrupt establishment lackey as their next president. While Trump
draws tens of thousands to his rallies, low energy sickly Clinton can barely
fill a high school gymnasium.
outspending Trump 10 to 1 on negative ads, Trump is either leading or tied in
national and key state polls. Considering the establishment controlled media is
probably skewing the polls and the huge silent majority isn’t telling the
truth, Trump’s lead is probably larger than being reported. The panic among the
Wall Street, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley elite is palpable. The anger and
disillusionment of the majority is being channeled by Trump in a crusade to
sweep away the existing social order. There is no escaping the Fourth Turning.
think you can escape the Fourth Turning the way you might today distance
yourself from news, national politics, or even taxes you don’t feel like
paying. History warns that a Crisis will reshape the basic social and economic
environment that you now take for granted. The Fourth Turning necessitates the
death and rebirth of the social order. It is the ultimate rite of passage for
an entire people, requiring a luminal state of sheer chaos whose nature and
duration no one can predict in advance.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning
the Deep State can rig the election or arrange for something unfortunate to
befall Mr. Trump, we are likely to have a president Trump on November 8. When
viewed within the context of the Fourth Turning, it is entirely logical that a
cocksure Prophet Generation leader would emerge as a response to the
anti-establishment regeneracy mood surging across the land. Being a libertarian
minded realist, I realize the coming challenges will not be met with less
government intervention, less government spending, or less money printing by
the Federal Reserve. The era of procrastination and half measures is over.
era of procrastination, of half measures, of soothing and baffling expedience
of delays, is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a period of
consequences.” – Winston
Trump and the country he will lead will be dining on a banquet of consequences
for the remainder of this Fourth Turning. Trump has been a master of sound
bites. The “Make America Great” slogan has resonated with the masses, but
slogans won’t pay the interest on the $20 trillion national debt, make good on
$200 trillion of unfunded entitlement liabilities, honor government pension
plans that are $4 trillion underfunded, or turn $1 trillion annual deficits into
surpluses. No candidate has ever been elected by promising to cut entitlements
and asking the voters to tighten their belts and be prepared to sacrifice. They
promise them more goodies.
has promised to cut corporate and personal income taxes. Who doesn’t like lower
taxes? He will cut regulations. Sounds good. He will expand government
childcare subsidies. Sounds expensive. Not a peep about Social Security,
Medicare, or defense spending. In fact, Trump declares he will rebuild the
military. Cutting taxes and regulations, while starting a trade war, will not
pay for itself.
which are already on automatic pilot to reach $1 trillion in the next few
years, will be driven higher. Voodoo economics didn’t work in the 1980s and it
won’t work now. This isn’t a TV reality show where the happy ending can be
scripted. I picture Trump making his glorious acceptance speech at 11:00 pm on
November 8, striding backstage after the speech, turning to Steve Bannon and
asking, “What do we do now?”
I started writing articles about the economy, banks, military industrial
complex and corrupt politicians back in 2008, I still naively believed the
system could be changed from within. I thought Ron Paul’s vision could save the
country. But after watching politicians double the national debt, TARP passed
by corrupt politicians of both parties when 90% of their constituents were
against it, not one criminal banker prosecuted for the biggest fraud in world
history, a president waging undeclared wars all over the world, a national
healthcare plan passed against the wishes of the people, and a rogue Federal
Reserve implementing disastrous monetary schemes to enrich Wall Street while
throwing seniors under the bus, I realized this rigged system is unfixable.
may have the best intentions, but he will be foiled at every turn by his
enemies in both parties, along with the ingrained establishment government
apparatchiks running the hundreds of useless government agencies. The media
will skewer his every statement. Wall Street and corporate America will
threaten his agenda if it negatively impacts them in any way. The “invisible
government” might decide it’s time to pull the rug out from beneath the
overvalued markets, resulting in a crash. The civil chaos is likely to spread
as Soros funds the violence. He will be tested by foreign powers. The Middle
East is guaranteed to explode in chaotic violence.
may have second thoughts about taking the helm of U.S. Titanic after it has
already hit the iceberg. History is cyclical and we are only halfway through
this Fourth Turning. The risk of catastrophe over the next decade is high. I
have studied history and believe we will be confronted with economic, social,
and military upheaval on par with the Great Depression/World War II crisis and
the Civil War crisis. We are doomed to repeat history, whether we’ve studied it
or not, because human failings span across the ages. Whether we meet the deadly
challenges ahead will decide the fate of our country.
risk of catastrophe will be very high. The nation could erupt into insurrection
or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule.
If there is a war, it is likely to be one of maximum risk and effort – in other
words, a total war. Every Fourth Turning has registered an upward ratchet in
the technology of destruction, and in mankind’s willingness to use it.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning
