Days Of Rage: Racist Maxine Waters Incites Public Violence

Psycho Waters calls for violence in the streets of America  

NATIONAL REVIEW
By David French
06/25/2018

American politics is taking a dangerous turn. Or, I should say, American politics is taking a dangerous turn again.


Waters
In the space of a few days last week, leftist protesters individually targeted trump aide Stephen Miller, taunted Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in a restaurant and at her home, mocked (and allegedly spat at) Florida attorney general Pam Bondi at a movie theater, and denied service to Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at a restaurant in Lexington, Va. Make no mistake, this is provocative rhetoric. Angry, in-your-face confrontations dramatically increase the chances of violence. 


Put people in close proximity, yelling and spitting, and public officials will rightly start to fear that they’re in physical danger. 

While millions of Americans don’t remember that a Bernie Sanders supporter last year tried to assassinate a significant portion of the GOP Congress, you can be assured that not a single Republican in Washington has forgotten. They can never be sure that the screaming person in front of them doesn’t mean them physical harm.


CNN fake news: Obama to retain White House if Trump is assassinated

Argue against these dangerous confrontations, and you’ll always get the same response: This administration is uniquely evil. It was taking children from their parents. The president just tweeted that he wants to strip due-process rights from illegal immigrants. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

What is the limiting principle here? The president caved on family separation after a few days of intense, bipartisan public pressure. Now the immigration policy the protesters are targeting is similar to one the Obama administration applied until late in his presidency.


Waters: The face of actual hate

How, for that matter, does the “desperate times call for desperate measures” analysis apply to events as disparate as threatening FCC chair Ajit Pai over net neutrality or attacking Charles Murray during a speech about America’s economic and class divides? How does it apply to the hellacious ordeal of Wisconsin conservatives who dared take on public-employee unions in Wisconsin?

“It’s a matter of life or death.”

That was the first thought of “Anne” (not her real name). Someone was pounding at her front door. It was early in the morning — very early — and it was the kind of heavy pounding that meant someone was either fleeing from — or bringing — trouble.

“It was so hard. I’d never heard anything like it. I thought someone was dying outside.”




She ran to the door, opened it, and then chaos. “People came pouring in. For a second I thought it was a home invasion. It was terrifying. They were yelling and running, into every room in the house. One of the men was in my face, yelling at me over and over and over.”

The home invaders were Wisconsin law-enforcement officers. The alleged justification for the raid was to investigate potential “coordination” between outside conservative groups and the Scott Walker gubernatorial campaign. In reality, they were raiding homes to investigate constitutionally protected conservative issue advocacy. It was an obscene abuse of power.


Politics deals with weighty matters. Thus, if you look hard enough, you can always find a pretext to inflict pain. Human life is at stake at every moment in the abortion debate.

Men, women, and children live or die depending on the foreign-policy choices of every American president. Economic fortunes rise and fall. Civil liberties hang in the balance. It’s precisely because politics is important that we have to work so hard to maintain peaceful and reasonable discourse. 



If history is any guide, the default human position is the scream of rage followed by the lunge for the pitchfork. We human beings have a tendency to escalate politics into civil strife and civil strife into war.

Our Founders understood this reality, so they created a system that provides for political change without pitchforks. In the United States, the frequency of elections ensures regular accountability, judicial review can check abuse, and the First Amendment protects opportunities to persuade.

The combination of peaceful protest and judicial intervention led to multiple revisions, and the Supreme Court — not Trump alone — will ultimately decide the ban’s fate. Similar malice and incompetence pervaded the Trump family-separation policy, and bipartisan outrage (supplemented by, yes, peaceful protest) forced him to reverse his position.


Antifa masked coward scum

But all bets are off when protest turns vicious, dangerous, and personal. I’m far less concerned by the denial of service to Sanders at a liberal restaurant than I am by the direct intrusions by protesters into the personal spaces of public officials.

Finally, if recent American history is any guide, the mob only sows the seeds of its own destruction. Americans don’t like political violence. They’re not impressed by men trying to physically intimidate women. They don’t like to see protesters disturbing the peace of a person’s home. The last time the Left turned to rage, it lost presidential elections in landslides. If given the choice between terrible tweets and chaos in the streets, voters will choose the tweets every time.

So, the choice is clear. Protest all you want, but the moment you turn vicious is the moment you turn dangerous. When you start to tear at the fabric of American political life, you won’t be able to control — and may not like — the forces you unleash in response.

From Salvini Win To Trump's G7 Remarks: The Collapse Of Globalism

EU, globalism accelerate into death-spiral  

SPUTNIK
By Salvatore Santangelo
06/25/2018

The concept of globalization is falling apart at the seams as Eurosceptic parties take the reins while US President Donald Trump pushes ahead with a protectionist tariff war, Italian academic and author Salvatore Santangelo told Sputnik, emphasizing the necessity of a Russian-European rapprochement.


Merkel, globalists in a state of panic
Earlier, in late May, Italy's euroskeptic Lega Nord and 5-Star Movement (M5S) managed to form a coalition government despite gloomy prognoses

On June 1, Lega Nord's head, Matteo Salvini, was appointed interior minister and deputy prime minister, while Luigi Di Maio was sworn in as minister of economic development, labor and social policies and deputy prime minister.

Concept of Globalism Bursting at the Seams


Meanwhile, the EU-US alliance is crumbling amid nothing short of a tariff war launched by US President Donald Trump in March 2018. After the US president's additional tariffs on aluminum and steel had come into force on June 1 the EU, Canada and some other countries announced retaliatory measures.

Commenting on the ongoing tariff spat, the journalist referred to the story of the Tower of Babel: the attempt to build a "homogenous" globalized world was doomed from the outset.


Trump informs Merkel, EU that the free ride is over

"The tower collapsed, the population dispersed, and a single language turned into many languages," Santangelo underscored. "A completely homogenized flat world is a utopia. This does not mean that the forces of globalization are weak. But they are counterbalanced by anti-globalization trends. As for the relationship between Europe and Russia, my position is very close to the stance of Ambassador [to the USSR between 1985 and 1989] Sergio Romano: It is important that we return to dialogue as soon as possible."

According to the journalist, "Europe cannot do without Russia, Russia cannot do without Europe."

The author cited Trump's remark at the June G7 summit in Canada regarding Crimea: "On the margins of the last G7 summit Trump spoke about the Russian nature of the Crimea and the need to find an opportunity for a dialogue with Moscow," Santangelo highlighted. "We must together resist the challenges of globalization — terrorism, fundamentalism and instability."


Trump pokes fun at Trudeau 

The US president had reportedly noted that Crimea was part of Russia. Commenting on the alleged remark, the White House's press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, told journalists on June 14: "I know it had been reported but I'm not going to comment on a private conversation I wasn't a part of."

Earlier, the US president opined that the G7 needs Russia at the negotiating table: "You know, whether you like it or — and it may not be politically correct — but we have a world to run and the G7, which used to be the G8, they threw Russia out, they should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table," Trump said, having arrived in Quebec.

War as Paradigm of Globalization

In his latest book "Babel: Dai Dazi di Trump alla guerra in Siria: ascesa e declino di un mondo globale" ("Babylon: From Trump's tariffs to the war in Syria: The rise and fall of a global world") Santangelo describes the negative effects of globalization and a global crisis. 




The central themes of the opus are China's rise, massive migration flows, armed conflicts, the US invasion of Afghanistan to Syria, and the internalization of markets and national identity.

"One of the chapters of my book is about war as a paradigm of globalization," the author pointed out. "The eleventh of September [2001] and the Iraq War [of 2003] were the key period. Ambassador Sergio Romano wrote a number of very important essays about the unipolar world and the expansion of US foreign policy and unipolar American globalism. In fact he wrote about the inability of the rest of the world to cope with this phenomenon."

Santangelo remarked that globalization is accompanied by the "unification of preferences," while the issue of uniqueness and originality is crucial both for the individual and the nation.




"The symbol of the victory of globalization at the end of the Cold War was the opening of a McDonald's in the center of Moscow," the journalist said. "Those who do not want to reconcile themselves with the 'equalization' choose organic products to which they are accustomed and which is more healthy than the food the snack chain is offering around the world."

The author underscored that the same is happening with Islam: The Arab world is feeling the threat of globalization and reacting to it; sometimes in the form of terrorism.

The Beginning Of The End Of The Bilderberg Era

Globalists, eugenicists, multiculturalists, CIA on the brink of annihilation as middle classes revolt  

STRATEGIC CULTURE FOUNDATION
By Alastair Crooke
06/26/2018

The beginning of the end of the Bilderberg/Soros vision is in sight. The Old Order will cling on, even to the last of its fingernails. 


The Bilderberg vision is the notion of multi-cultural cosmopolitanism that surpasses old-time nationalism; heralding the end of frontiers; and leading toward a US-led, ‘technocratic’, global economic and political governance. Its roots lie with figures such as James Burnham, an anti-Stalin former Trotskyite who writing as early as 1941 advocated for the levers of financial and economic power being placed in the hands of a management class: an élite – which alone would be capable of running the contemporary state.


It was, bluntly, a call for an expert, technocratic oligarchy. 

Burnham renounced his allegiance to Trotsky and Marxism, in all its forms in 1940, but he would take the tactics and strategies for infiltration and subversion, (learned as a member of Leon Trotsky’s inner circle) with him, and would elevate the Trotskyist management of ‘identity politics’ to become the fragmentation ‘device’ primed to explode national culture onto a new stage, in the Western sphere. 

His 1941 book, “The Managerial Revolution,” caught the attention of Frank Wisner, subsequently, a legendary CIA figure, who saw in the works of Burnham and his colleague a fellow Trotskyite, Sidney Hook, the prospect of mounting an effective alliance of former Trotskyites against Stalinism.


Wisner

But, additionally, Wisner perceived its merits as the blueprint for a CIA-led, pseudo-liberal, US-led global order. (‘Pseudo’, because, as Burnham articulated clearly, in The Machiavellians, Defenders of Freedom, his version of freedom meant anything but intellectual freedom or those freedoms defined by America’s Constitution. “What it really meant was conformity and submission”).

In short, (as Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould have noted), “by 1947, James Burnham’s transformation from Communist radical, to New World Order American conservative was complete. His Struggle for the World, [converted into a memo for the US Office of Strategic Services (OSS, the forerunner of CIA)], had done a ‘French Turn’ on Trotsky’s permanent Communist revolution, and turned it into a permanent battle plan for a global American empire. All that was needed to complete Burnham’s dialectic was a permanent enemy, and that would require a sophisticated psychological campaign to keep the hatred of Russia alive, "for generations".




What has this to do with us today? A ‘Burnham Landscape’ of apparently, ‘centrist’ European political parties, apparently independent think-tanks, institutions, and NATO structures, was seeded by CIA – in the post war era of anti-Sovietism - across Europe, and the Middle East – as part of Burnham’s ‘battle plan’ for a US-led, global ‘order’. It is precisely this élite: i.e. Burnham’s oligarchic technocracy, that is facing political push-back today to the point at which the Liberal Order feels that it is struggling for its very survival against the enemy in the White House, as the editor of Spiegel Online has termed President Trump.

What has caused this? Well, like him or hate him, President Trump has played a major part, if only by saying the unsayable. The rationality or not inherent in these Eckhart-style ‘unsayings’, or apophasis, is beside the point: Trump’s intuitive ‘discourse of saying the unsayable’ has taken most of the bolts out of the former Burnham-type, ideological structure. 




But in Europe, two main flaws to the Burnham blueprint have contributed, possibly fatally, to the blueprint crisis: Firstly, the policy of populating Europe with immigrants, as a remedy for Europe’s adverse demographics (and to dilute to the point of erasure, its national cultures): "Far from leading to fusion”, writes British historian, Niall Ferguson, "Europe’s migration crisis is leading to fission. The play might be called The Meltdown Pot … Increasingly … the issue of migration will be seen by future historians as the fatal solvent of the EU. In their accounts Brexit will appear as merely an early symptom of the crisis." 

And secondly, the bi-furcation of the economy into two unrelated, and dis-equal economies, as a result of the élite’s mismanagement of the global economy, (i.e. the obvious the absence of ‘prosperity for all’).




Trump evidently has heard the two key messages from his constituency: that they neither accept to have (white) American culture, and its way-of-life, diluted through immigration; and, neither do they wish – stoically – to accommodate to America’s eclipse by China.

The issue of how to arrest China’s rise is primordial (for Team Trump), and in a certain sense, has led to an American ‘retrospective’: America now may only account for 14% of global output (PPP – Purchasing Power Parity basis), or 22%, on a nominal basis (as opposed to near half of global output, for which the US was responsible, at the close of WW2), but American corporations, thanks to the dollar global hegemony, enjoy a type of monopoly status (i.e. Microsoft, Google and Facebook, amongst others), either through regulatory privilege, or by marketplace dominance. Trump wants to halt this asset from decaying further and to leverage it again as a potent bargaining chip in the present tariff wars. This is clearly a political ‘winner’ in terms of US domestic grass-roots, politics, and the upcoming November mid-term elections.




The second strand seems to be something of a Middle East ‘retrospective’: to restore the Middle East to the era of The Shah, when ‘Persia’ policed the Middle East; when Israel was a regional ‘power’ implementing the American interest; and when the major sources of energy were under US control. And, further, when Russian influence was being attenuated, by leveraging radical Sunni Islam against Arab socialism, and nationalism.

Of course, Trump is savvy enough to know that it is not possible to revert wholly to that Kissinger-esque world. The region has changed too much for that. But Kissinger remains an influential adviser to the President (together with PM Netanyahu). And it is easy to forget that US dominance of the Middle East brought America not just control of energy, but the re-cycling of petrodollars into Wall Street, and the necklace of US military bases in the Gulf that both surround Iran, and give to the US its military muscle, reaching into Asia.




But, it is just a ‘narrative’, and it is nonsense, when put into a broader understanding of the regional context. The history of Islam has never been free from violent conflict (going back to earliest days: i.e. the Wars of the Ridda, or apostasy 632-3 etc.). But – lest we forget – this present era of Sunni radicalization (such as has given birth to ISIS) reaches back, at least, to the 17th and 18th Centuries, with the Ottoman disaster at the Gates of Vienna (1683); the consequent onset of the Caliphate dissolution; growing Ottoman permissiveness and sensuality, provoking Abd-el Wahhab’s radical zealotism (on which basis Saudi Arabia was founded); and finally the aggressive westernizing secularism in Turkey and Persia, which triggered what is called ‘political Islam’ (both Sunni and Shi’a that initially, were united, in a single movement).

The MBS narrative that Saudi Arabia’s ‘fundamentalism’ was a reaction to the Iranian Revolution is yet another ‘meme’ that may serve Trump and Netanyahu’s interests, but is just as false. The reality is that the modern Arab (Sunni) system, a holdover from the Ottoman era, has been in a long term channel of decline since WW1 - whereas Shi’i Islam is enjoying a strong revival across the northern tier of the Middle East, and beyond. Put rather bluntly: the Iranians are on the upside of history – it’s as simple as that.




And what Trump is trying to do is Iranian capitulation, in the face of the American-Israeli-Saudi siege, the key to undoing Obama (again), by trying to reassert US Middle East dominance, energy dominance and an Israeli resurgence of regional power. Subjugating Iran thus has emerged as the supreme litmus for re-establishing the unipolar global order.

It is so iconic precisely because, just as much as Trump would like to see Iran, Iraq and Iranian allies everywhere, fall to the unipolar hegemony, Iran is as central to the multipolar vision of Xi and Putin as it is iconic to Trump’s putative Middle East ‘makeover’. And it is not just symbolic: Iran is as pivotal to both Russian and Chinese geo-political strategies. In a word, Iran has more leverage to ensure survival than Trump may have anticipated.

America will leverage its dominance of the financial system to the limit to strangle Iran, and China and Russia will do what is necessary financially, and in terms of trade, to see that Iran does not implode economically – and remains a pillar of the multipolar alternative world order.




And it is here that the paradigm shifts in Europe come into play. It is not, I repeat not because Europe can be expected to show leadership or to ‘do’ much, but rather because the apophatic discourse of ‘saying the unsayable’ is spreading to Europe. It has not, so far, changed the paradigm of power, but may soon (i.e. with Merkel’s possible political demise). Germany may be more staid in its politics than Italy, but the voice of Italy’s new Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, saying ‘no’ to the ‘Burnham’ proxies in Berlin is echoing across Europe, and beyond. It acts like a slap in the face.

Let us be absolutely clear: We are not suggesting that Europe will expend political capital in defending the JCPOA. That is not likely. We are saying that America’s dollar hegemony has proved toxic to the rest of the world in very many ways, and Trump - in leveraging that hegemony so gangsterishly: “We’re America, Bitch”, as one official described America’s approach – is fueling antagonism towards dollar hegemony (if not yet towards America per se). It is pushing all of non-America into a common stance of rebellion against America’s unipolar financial dominance.

Wasted Mayor Beats Up Husband After Gay Pride Parade

Ohio - and America - gets what it votes for    

DAILY WIRE

06/25/2018

A mayor of an Ohio suburb got into a physical altercation with his husband, who happens to be the village's maintenance supervisor, after a long day of partying at Cincinnati gay pride festivities, which included lots of alcohol, apparently. 


Elmwood Place Mayor Bill Wilson
Elmwood Place Mayor Bill Wilson and his husband, village maintenance supervisor Bill Smith, were both charged with domestic battery, as, according to local police, it was unclear who was the main aggressor. Wilson and Smith took a beating it seems, with Wilson catching a black eye and Smith boasting scratches on his face. On their way home from a rowdy day of gay pride in downtown Cincinnati on Saturday, the couple apparently "got into an argument over who was 'drunkest' and who should be driving," reports WLWT5 News. 


The fight continued back at their residence, where they apparently beat one another and ended up rolling around in brocken glass.

The duo was also charged with disorderly conduct by intoxication and Wilson was also charged with obstructing official business and resisting arrest. The mayor reportedly pushed an officer and attempted to make a run for it after cops showed up.

Fox19 Now reports:

Wilson called Elmwood Place police officers to the residence at 527 Maple St. When they arrived, they found the men intoxicated with eye injuries from punches and scratches from broken glass that they were rolling on, according to the release.

The men reportedly persisted in drunken disorderly behavior after being told to stop and were arrested.

Elmwood Place police then called on St. Bernard police for assistance with the men's arrest because both men work in the village administration, the release states.

Wilson continued his disorderly behavior in public, according to police, and caused alarm among neighbors. He ran inside the home away from officers and later attempted to run again as Elmwood medics checked on him.

Both men were booked at Hamilton County Jail.


Non-stop filth: Politicians, globalists seek to destroy the middle classes through societal breakdown of morals 

Local residents reacted to the altercation following the gay pride festivities with feelings of shame.

"You got to have a leader, you've got to have a good leader. You lead by example. That's not by example," resident Mickey Turner told WLWT5 News.

"They should hold a higher regard of who they are and set a better example then out here in the public, they're out here fighting," Turner added.




"That's their mayor and they had to arrest him," said resident Brandon Spivey said.
