No one can make you feel bad about yourself with your consent. From Brandon Smith at alt-market.com:
If Trump gets a Supreme Court nominee approved, the balance of the court may shift to the right for several decades. The Marxists see the threat and will fight it tooth and nail. From Tom Luongo at strategic-culture.org:
For all of the bad things that have happened in 2020 don’t for a second believe that 2021 won’t be infinitely worse. It has been clear to me for months that the fight for the White House is one for the ages.
While every election is ‘the most important one ever’ in the minds of the politicos who see the other side for what it is, an existential threat to their power, this election is, I feel, finally one worth that moniker. But, that said, nearly every election truly is one where voters are presented a Hobson’s Choice where there is no real difference between the standard bearers of both major parties.
And the animating principle of these people is the accumulation of raw power, nothing more. Power, as a concept in modern political theory, is purely an outgrowth of Marxian thinking, defining everything that happens in our lives in terms of it. There are no win/wins in this worldview, only those who benefit and those who are exploited.
Basic concepts of comparative advantage and individual talents as expressed in free trade between sovereign actors are not only nullified by this doctrine but actively disparaged and denigrated through the language of envy and the rhetoric of victimization.
With the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg the day has come for the existent power structure where they have to reveal the final truth of their naked need to maintain their power.
Because replacing Ginsburg has been the most pressing concern for Democrats, Regime Republicans and their globalist backers in The Davos Crowd since the day Donald Trump was elected.
The media are remarkably incurious about the aims, funding, and tactics of “peaceful protestors” like Black Lives Matter and Antifa. From Mike Whitney at unz.com:
“We are coming to dismantle this deeply oppressive, racist, sexist, utterly bankrupt system of capitalism. We cannot and will not stop until it is dismantled, and we replace it with a socialist world, based on solidarity, genuine democracy, and equality.” Kshama Sawant, (“Red Sammie”, YouTube) Seattle City Council, District 3
“To make the individual sacred we must destroy the social order that crucifies him. And this problem can only be solved with blood and iron.” Leon Trotsky, Terrorism and Communism, 1920
Here’s a question for you: When a young man dressed entirely in black, uses a racial justice protest to conceal himself so he can break windows, incinerate retail shops and cafes, pelt cops with bottles, rocks and fireworks, and spread mayhem across the city, what is the political message he is trying to send?
1– He is honoring the death of George Floyd
2– He is expressing his support for racial justice
3– He is attacking the system that protects ordinary people from criminal violence
4– He is a paid agitator funded by liberal organizations that seek to intensify social unrest for their own political objectives
If you chose 3 or 4, you’re probably right, there are undoubtedly paid agitators operating on behalf of wealthy outsiders, just as there are many “true believers” who see the riots as a springboard for a broader revolt that will topple the existing system. In other words, there are competing agendas at play in these violent outbursts. The least likely answer is Number 1, that “He is honoring the death of George Floyd.” The riots have nothing to do with George Floyd, he’s merely the fig leaf that hides the true motives of the perpetrators.
Who’s pulling the rioters’ strings? From Southern Sage at theburningplatform.com:
The Alinsky angle is important, of course, but the problem is far worse than that. Alinsky was a criminal subversive who deserved the hangman’s noose but he was only one player among many who have brought us to the brink of catastrophe.
I am a retired intelligence officer who spent almost all of his career overseas. Unlike so many of the so-called “counter-terrorism experts” who spew blather on TV, I really did work against terrorist and extremist political organizations as well as guerrilla movements. I also had the experience of actually living in a Communist country. I have studied the Communist movement for many years and in recent years I have expanded that to cover what can best be called the “Globalist” movement. The two are different but related.
What we are seeing today in our country today is the culmination of decades of steady, determined work to undermine and erode everything that ordinary Americans believe in, fundamentally change our culture, political system, and economic structure, and finally dispossess the historic American population of our country. A key element in this is the destruction of American sovereignty and its replacement by a web of international laws, institutions, treaties, and financial arrangements.
