The FBI has just classified “white nationalists and Neo-Nazis” (n.b. no distinction) as the same as ISIS (!), and America’s JournoFa are congratulating themselves [The FBI Just Put White Nationalists and Neo-Nazis on the Same Threat Level as ISIS, by Tess Owen, Vice, February 6, 2020]. Meanwhile, back in the real world, an Antifa group attacked people in Portland OR, a GOP voter registration booth was attacked in Florida, Antifa harassed police who were keeping them from attacking a rally by the Patriot Front, and two police officers were shot in “assassination attempts” New York City—all within a few hours. Will President Donald J. Trump do anything about this? Or just tweet?

We know that at least the Florida car attack is on Trump’s radar. Gregory William Loel Timm is accused of driving through a GOP voter registration tent, stopping, taking a video, and then flipping off the people he almost killed [Man accused of driving through Republican voter registration tent arrested, by Nick Jones and Allyson Henning, February 9, 2020].

Timm’s actions demonstrate far more premeditation, motive, and malice than the case of Charlottesville Unite The Right car driver James Fields, who was caught in a dangerous, chaotic environment unleashed (according to an independent report) by local and state authorities and whose state-appointed lawyers simply failed to defend him. Incredibly, the Trump Department of Justice has not investigated the independent analyst’s damning report, although doing so could have turned around the Ruling Class’s anti-Trump Charlottesville Narrative.

Trump has taunted Timm on Twitter, warning him to be “careful who he plays with” [Pictured: Man, 27, who’d deliberately drove his SUV into a tent full of Trump volunteers registering new Republican voters, by Andrew Court, Daily Mail, February 9, 2020].

But, absent real action from Trump, this tough talk just makes things worse. It encourages patriots to confront Antifa when local law enforcement, frequently Democrat-controlled, may be on Antifa’s side.

Remember, it’s actually easy to keep two opposing political camps separate for the protection of both. The Patriot Front rally went off fairly peacefully in Washington D.C., because law enforcement did their job.

Of course, the MSM reported this as the group having a “police escort,” as if the police were guarding the protesters [Masked white nationalists march in Washington with police escort, Reuters, February 8, 2020]. Reporters are frustrated that the DC Metropolitan Police said “the First Amendment demonstration was peaceful with no arrests.” Yet what did the MSM want? No police separating the two sides? That’s what happened in Charlottesville.

On a smaller scale, that’s what just happened in Portland. Another one of these mysterious “KKK rallies” that pop up only to get canceled (as if the KKK is active in Portland!) gave Antifa an excuse to come out.

There were no Klansmen marching in Portland, but that didn’t stop Antifa from throwing flares, chasing random people down the street, and throwing objects at police. In one case, a masked gang pursued a videographer—and the Portland police contemptuously told him they would not help.

Antifa spray-painted memorials with slogans like “Kill Cops,” “All cops are bastards,” and “Punch cops” [KKK cancels Portland rally; 3 protesters arrested, by Jennifer Dowling, KOIN 6 News, February 8, 2020]. Does this count as what the MSM calls “radicalizing” speech and incitement to violence?

In contrast, around the same time, Robert Williams, who appears to be a black man, was captured after walking into a New York City police station and opening fire [Gunman ambushes NYC police twice in 12 hours, spawns outrage, by Sophia Rosenbaum and Deepti Hajela, Associated Press, February 10, 2020]. He surrendered only after he ran out of bullets [Bronx precinct shooting suspect Robert Williams surrendered after running out of bullets, by Anabel Sosa and Aaron Feis, New York Post, February 9, 2020].

Are Antifa responsible for this man’s actions? When the MSM is promoting cop killers, journalists are telling people that cops are murdering people in the street, and Antifa are explicitly promoting killing cops, what does anyone expect?

This was also just a few days after a mass anarchist protest designed to shut down public transport because it’s “racist” that blacks get arrested for not paying the fare [Anarchists spark riots, vandalism at Grand Central – shutting down trains and causing mayhem, by Pat Droney, Law Enforcement Today, January 31, 2020]. “F**k the police,” was among the slogans.

Yet there has been no reaction from the White House—any more than when House Republicans were almost massacred at a baseball game by a Sanders supporter in 2017.

There’s no sweeping crackdown, no investigations, no solemn declarations about domestic terrorism from the Department of Justice. Above all, there’s no massive wave of private and public sector repression as after the Democrat riot at the 2017 Unite The Right rally.

Instead, the FBI boasted about breaking up “The Base,” which allegedly planned a mass shooting in Virginia [“Racially-motivated violent extremists elevated to national threat priority,by Erin Donaghue, KUTV, February 6, 2020]. Nobody I know has e ver heard of these people. It has been suggested they’re actually not political but a Satanic cult.

All of which raises an obvious question: What does “white nationalism” even mean? If we take the most radical definition, working for an explicitly white homeland within the territory of the United States, that’s simply what Keith Ellison and other members of the Black Congressional Caucus have explicitly advocated, only for blacks [Racial nationalism – real and imagined, by Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, November 20, 2017]. It’s what Hispanic separatists have openly promoted for years.

If we take “white nationalism’s” milder definition—of working for white interests—that’s simply the same rationale behind organizations like the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, UnidosUS (formerly the National Council of La Raza), and countless other ethnic activist groups.

Given that Democrats like Elizabeth Warren are advocating “race-conscious” policies, how can whites not organize on ethnic lines? What is illegitimate about that?

It certainly seems more honest and honorable than pulling a Warren or Rachel Dolezal and pretending to be a non-white for career advantage—cases in which by themselves blow apart the doctrine of “white privilege.”

To repeat (again): is ultimately not a white nationalist site. We want America to work.

Yet that would involve making English the official language, abolishing affirmative action, imposing an Immigration Moratorium, and removing official multiculturalism. And these things are unlikely to happen without whites pushing for them.

If these policies are not implemented, it’s absurd that whites, and only whites, are forbidden from advocating their own interests within the American caste system that our Ruling Class has created.

President Donald J. Trump, a “fascist” according to the Main Stream Media, runs the Executive Branch of government. Thus, we would expect a sweeping crackdown on Leftist/ MSM radicalism. But instead, the state is gunning for patriots.

While the FBI is snooping around and trying to trap people into saying stupid things so they can arrest them, Leftists are running wild, radicalized by the MSM and academia.

Tough-guy posturing is not what we need from the Commander-in-Chief. We just need common sense law enforcement.

Local authorities in Charlottesville, Portland, and New York City have simply given up control of the streets. If the federal government is not willing to stop in, what it is even for?

If really is as influential in the White House as journalists seem to believe, perhaps someone can get Donald Trump this message: Gangs who hate patriots, police and the president are openly committing violence and getting away with it.

We need Donald Trump to do something more than Tweet.

    Just prior to the Spanish Civil War, every time leftists went on a rampage, the response of the government was to arrest more rightists. History repeats itself.

    For lowering black and hispanic unemployment, promoting non-white racial interests and persecuting white people who don’t hate themselves you silly guy. That’s been the primary function of the post 1965 (((federal government))) although things have worsened considerably since 2016.

    The FBI is now an agenda driven federal law enforcement agency that appears to be dominated by partisan leftists and amoral psychopaths. Their agenda seems to almost perfectly align with the ADL’s and it’s obvious the ADL wears the pants in that relationship.

    Even after the FBI and ADL resorted to fuzzy math and book cooking to inflate the number of so called white nationalist terror incidents Muslim extremists are still about 18 times more likely to commit a domestic terror attack based on their numbers in the general population per my recollection. Yet, white nationalism is now as serious a threat as Muslim extremism according to the FBI.

    Thousands of patriotic Americans are responsible for infiltrating hate groups and making them less dangerous. Those who advocate disrupting the American way of life are taught to love not hate. One bigot who advocated snatching a yarmulke off a Jews head was thwarted after sharing his intention with a police informant. Hate groups might yell out loud but thats all they should be doing.

    So the Deep State going after Trump since 2015, smearing and denigrating him (pussy and hookers), illegally spying on him, accusing him of treason for apparently collaborating with the Russians (Russiagate), Special Counsel investigation, impeaching him (Ukrainegate), ignoring his executive orders, leaking documents…..has all been part of a big show in order to fool us all?

    The Democrats and a good many Republican politicians, the press, academia, the courts, the FBI, CIA, Department of Justice, the State Department and the entertainment industry have directed hatred towards Trump for the last three years, yet we’re to believe that it’s all been a ruse?

    When Trump gave his inaugural speech, which apparently he insisted on writing himself, he’d already won the election, so he didn’t need to spell out AGAIN the promises he had made to the American people, but he did. He went over what he intended to do. Why would a person who was merely trying to pull the wool over our eyes (your argument) bother spelling out his promises again when he didn’t have to?

    Are you Deep Antifa or Deep Bernie?

    The State Department, FBI, Department of Justice, National Security Council are chalk full of Obama holdovers. These people attempted to orchestrate a coup against the President of the United States, aided by the media, but it has failed miserably.

    Yesterday it was announced that the NSC is getting rid of a bunch of top personnel. They had been leaking and working against the President.

    Today it was announced that two prosecutors working for the Department of Justice have resigned. They wanted to hand Roger Stone (who did nothing compared to Comey, Brennan and the rest of the traitors) a nine-year prison sentence. Don’t forget, Roger Stone got charged because of Russiagate, and Russiagate turned out to be a hoax.

    If Bill Barr, Attorney General, does not fire the top people at the Department of Justice (the Deep Staters), that will be an indication that the status quo is to be maintained.

    What Trump should have done is come in and immediately fired all of the Obama holdovers. That should have been his first priority. But the psychopaths got out in front of Trump and created Russiagate before he even turned around.

    Hop into your swimming trunks and go out and swim with a pack of sharks. Come on now, you can do it. See how long you last, and don’t forget to come up for air.

    Trump is keeping his mouth shut for now. He’s waiting until he gets reelected.

    The country has been taken over and is being run by a bunch of psychopaths. They are absolutely destroying the country. Russiagate didn’t work, Ukrainegate didn’t work, but they will be back to try again. Bank on it.

    I wonder …

    Obama to ask his political appointees to clear way for Clinton

    Thousands of Obama loyalists will be asked to submit resignation letters before Jan. 20.


    11/05/2016 07:36 AM EDT

    President Barack Obama plans to ask the thousands of political appointees across his administration to submit letters of resignation effective on Inauguration Day, a move that follows a time-honored tradition but is stoking anxiety among his loyalists throughout the federal government.

    For the first time in 28 years, there’s the prospect of a same-party transition, and with Hillary Clinton vowing to build on Obama’s agenda, that could have been good news for any of his 4,000 political appointees who might want to keep their jobs beyond Jan. 20.

    But despite the eight-year process of merging the Democrats’ political networks, the expectation remains that Clinton will largely replace Obama’s executive branch staff — from cabinet secretaries to deputy chiefs of staff to low-level press assistants — with her own.

    so the Obama loyalists didn’t leave because Hillary didn’t win … or did they … did Donald ask them to stay as a 4D chess move … “let’s give them enough rope to hang themselves” … because Mob boss in a movie said that a guy like him needs to “keep friends close and the enemies closer” ….

    moves and counter moves … trust the plan indeed …

    Antifa and the Bernie Bros are gonna burn Milwaukee to the ground if the Dems steal away the nomination from Bernie this time.

    Wray will still be looking under the bed for white nationalists.

    @A. Hipster

    You could be right. If so, that’s a good move. Just like when they went after Trump on Ukrainegate, the Democrats ended up exposing Biden’s corruption to the world (along with a few other Dems).

    It kind of makes you wonder sometimes who is leading the attack. Does Trump drop a few words here and there on Twitter, drop a few names in a phone call, knowing the Dems will, in an effort to keep their corruption covered up, then defend or attack him back, and then everything eventually gets exposed? Well, exposed enough for the American people to get a glimpse of what’s going on. Smart, if so.

    It is an election year and his bullshit was so effective last time, he is going to try it again. He is promising actions, again, that he didn’t fulfill the first time.

    It is apparent that you cannot see the charade. there are many situations that are dead giveaways…one is the fact that Trump hired Bolton one of the biggest swamp assholes of all…yet Trump hired him. There are many other actions taken by Trump that give away the game. See if you can figure which ones.

    Are you Deep dumbass or Deep shit for brains???

    Trump, in his buffoonish way, is exposing a lot too: the spying on the Trump campaign, Russiagate, the bogus Mueller investigation, the corrupt FBI, CIA, Department of Justice and State Department. And Bolton just got exposed too; he was working with the Democrats during the impeachment proceedings, leaking information. Same with Vindman on the NSC. Bringing Bolton in probably exposed the other traitors who ended up working with him. Swamps are murky, dirty and dangerous, but the Swamp is slowly being drained.

    Bolton was exposed years years ago as a warmonger…something Trump said he wanted to eliminate.

    That’s your problem, you have been following the bouncing ball…and it is being bounced by Trump and the Deep State.

    Yes, and look at how the Left embraced Bolton. Why, he was the best thing since sliced bread when he was willing to testify against Trump. And look at the adoration the Left has shown for Brennan, and all of a sudden they’re embracing George Bush and the Ukrainian Nazis.

    The problem is that having people like Bolton in a position of power is entirely bipartisan. It’s the same with the immigration question. BOTH sides of the aisle are in agreement on open immigration and war, to name just two. Who cares if it ruins the country or causes loss of life; it’s good for business!

    Trump has been fighting against the warmongers on the Left AND the Right. That’s why I described his situation as swimming with the sharks. Who does he go to? Most of these politicians have been bought by big corporate money, promoted by a media aligned with those corporate interests and willing to describe these bought politicians in glowing terms, as well as smearing their competition, and then they’ve been elected, because of the above, by a low-information electorate.

    Most politicians are NOT on the side of the “people”. People? Who cares about the people! Their corporate masters (on both sides) are telling them that John Bolton is their man, and by God he’d better be put in there. Same with the terrible Gina Haspel (CIA) and Nikki Haley (that witch of a U.N. ambassador). These people are who the corporate masters wanted in there; that’s why they’re there (or were).

    It’s bipartisan! Was watching a good interview this morning. John Laughland, political scientist and historian, called what Trump is up against a “cartel” who are bent on maintaining the status quo. He later said that it’s not really the “Deep State”; it’s just the “State”: the State Department, the Pentagon, Congress, the Senate. It’s not just the CIA, FBI or NSC; it’s all of them. This is what Trump is up against. Who does he sidle up to in his own party to help him? Lindsay Graham? John McCain (when he was alive)? These guys will hang Trump out to dry before they’d help him. Their corporate masters direct what they’ll do and won’t do.

    Watch the two minutes of conversation at 13:00 minutes in:

    You and I are probably closer in thought than you’d think. Cheers.
