Here are a few takeaways from the Democratic Convention:

  1. The Democrats are running on the same platform they ran on in 2016.
  2. The Democrats put style above substance, flashy optics above ideas or issues.
  3. The Democrats think that hollow tributes to “diversity” and “inclusion” will win the election.
  4. The Democrats have abandoned white, working class voters opting instead for people of color.
  5. The Democrats have learned nothing from Hillary Clinton’s defeat in 2016.

In 2016, Democrat front-runner, Hillary Clinton lost the election because she failed to see her support was eroding in the key Rust Belt states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. Trump won all three states with a measly 77, 651 votes total. All three states were expected to go Democrat but flipped to the GOP due to Clinton’s support for free trade and immigration policies that cost jobs and imposed unwelcome demographic changes on the working people of those states. The Democrats and Hillary have never accepted the factual version of how the election was lost. Instead, they fabricated a conspiracy theory about Trump colluding with Russia. Although the Mueller Report proved that the claims of meddling were baseless, Clinton and the Dems continue to trot them out at every opportunity. On Tuesday at the convention, Hillary again reiterated the lie that Trump stole the election. She said:

“Vote like our lives and livelihoods are on the line, because they are. Remember: Joe and Kamala can win 3 million more votes and still lose. Take it from me. We need numbers so overwhelming Trump can’t sneak or steal his way to victory.”

The determination on the part of the Democrats to mischaracterize what actually happened in the election is not a trivial matter. It suggests that deception is central to their governing style. Party leaders do not think their supporters are entitled to know the truth but rather believe that events must be shaped in a way that best serves their overall political interests. For Democrats, lying is not a personal failing, but an opportunity for enhancing their grip on power. This is from an article in The Guardian:

“Donald Trump’s electoral college victory rests on the shoulders of more than 200 so-called “pivot counties” across the US. That is, counties that voted for Barack Obama only four years earlier. The most decisive of these swings occurred in Pennsylvania’s Luzerne county, nestled in the north-east part of the state…There, voters gave Trump a nearly 20-point victory after going for Obama by almost 5% in 2012. But Trump’s win in Luzerne was also noteworthy for its magnitude. His 26,000 vote plurality in Luzerne comprised almost three-fifths of his plurality in the state as a whole, and with it Pennsylvania’s 20 coveted electoral votes….” (“The Forgotten review: Ben Bradlee Jr delivers 2020 lessons for Democrats”, The Guardian)

Critical battleground states tilted in Trump’s favor because Democratic policies had decimated their communities and eviscerated their standard of living. Author Ben Bradlee Jr. explains this phenom in his book “The Forgotten” which should be required reading at the DNC. Here’s a clip from the review at the Guardian:

“The Forgotten documents the ravages of deindustrialization, lost jobs, crime and drugs. It captures the sense of displacement tied to a changing and less monochromatic America. Once upon a time, Luzerne was home to coal and textiles, dominated by Protestants from Wales and Catholics from Ireland and continental Europe. Not any more. Luzerne is poorer and smaller, for many a less recognizable place. Not surprisingly, immigration and Nafta come in for constant criticism.” (The Guardian)

This is the real reason Hillary was defeated. Russia had nothing to do with it. The Dems abandoned the white working-class people who had always voted for them and began to cobble together their Rainbow coalition. When Hillary denounced these people as “Deplorables”, it forced more of them to join Trump team. The rest is history. Here’s more from the same article:

“In the absence of a recession, however, the party stands to face the same electoral map it did in 2016. In fact, Ohio now looks an even tougher nut to crack. Much as the Democratic base loathes the president, reality cannot be wished away. Luzerne would be a good place for the party to start addressing this reality.” (The Guardian)

The point we’re trying to make is that the effectiveness of the Democrat Convention can only be measured in terms of its impact on potential voters. So, why have the Dems shrugged off any effort to reach out to the people who could help them win?

It’s not that complicated. The Dems are merely abandoning the people who, they believe, will leave anyway as their globalist economic agenda becomes more apparent putting more downward pressure on overall living standards. It’s worth noting, that when Obama left office in 2016, this process was already well-underway. According to a Gallup poll, 71 percent of the people said they were dissatisfied with the way things were going. (in Obama’s last year.) Only 27 percent said they’re satisfied. So, even though Obama’s personal approval ratings remained high, his handling of the economy was extremely unpopular. (except on Wall Street, of course.)

During this same period, the PEW Research Center conducted a survey titled: “Campaign Exposes Fissures Over Issues, Values and How Life Has Changed in the U.S” which showed why Trump was steadily gaining on Hillary. Here are a few excerpts from the report:

“Among GOP voters, fully 75% of those who support Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination say life for people like them has gotten worse…

“GOP voters who support Trump also stand out for their pessimism about the nation’s economy and their own financial situations: 48% rate current economic conditions in the U.S. as “poor.

“Within the GOP, anger at government is heavily concentrated among Trump supporters – 50% say they are angry at government…”

“Among Republicans, a majority of those who back Trump (61%) view the system as unfair…among Trump supporters, 67% say trade agreements are bad thing…”

“Half of Trump supporters (50%) say they are angry at the federal government…. Anger at government – and politics – is much more pronounced among Trump backers than among supporters of any other presidential candidate, Republican or Democrat…” (“Campaign Exposes Fissures Over Issues, Values and How Life Has Changed in the U.S“, PEW Research Center)

So, a higher percentage of Trump supporters think they are getting screwed-over by an unfair system. They think “free trade” only benefits the rich, they think the government is unresponsive to their needs, they think the system is rigged, and they’re really, really mad.

So, which speaker at the Democrat Convention addressed the concerns or complaints of white working-class people who now almost-universally harbor these same feelings??

No one, because no one in the Democrat party plans to do anything about these issues, in fact, just the opposite. Now that the Dems have been subsumed by Wall Street and their big globalist donors, things are going to get dramatically worse for working people who will see a vicious attack on essential social services and programs as soon as the election is over. The massive build-up of debt– by mainly Democrat Governors who deliberately drove their states into bankruptcy at the behest of Fauci’s Vaccine Gestapo– will now be met by a growing demand for austerity on a scale unlike anything we’ve experienced in the last century. The country is being prepared for an excruciating restructuring that will create a permanent underclass that will provide an endless source of sweatshop labor for the multinational carpetbaggers. Those jobs will likely go to members of the Dems rainbow coalition while white, working class people in America’s heartland –with their strong sense of patriotism– will be seen as a potential threat to the emerging new order.

It’s clear that the Dems anticipate resistance to their plan by the contemptible way they have branded struggling workers as “white nationalists” and “racists”. But is it true or are the Democrats and their deep-pocket allies preemptively denigrating these people and supporting BLM rioters to head-off growing resistance to their strategy of total control through widespread mayhem, decimation of the economy and extermination of the American middle class? Author CJ Hopkins summed it up like this in a recent article at The Unz Review:

“What we are experiencing is not the “return of fascism.” It is the global capitalist empire restoring order, putting down the populist insurgency that took them by surprise in 2016.

The White Black Nationalist Color Revolution, the fake apocalyptic plague, all the insanity of 2020 … it has been in the pipeline all along. It has been since the moment Trump won the election. No, it is not about Trump, the man. It has never been about Trump, the man…

GloboCap needs to crush Donald Trump… not because he is a threat to the empire…, but because he became a symbol of populist resistance to global capitalism and its increasingly aggressive “woke” ideology . It is this populist resistance to its ideology that GloboCap is determined to crush, no matter how much social chaos and destruction it unleashes in the process...” (“The White Black Nationalist Color Revolution”, CJ Hopkins, The Unz Review)

Bingo. It is the “populist resistance to global capitalism” that is the defacto enemy of the Party elite, the same elites who conspired with senior-level members of the Intelligence Community, the FBI, the DOJ and the Obama White House to spy on the Trump Campaign, infiltrate the presidential transition, and to try to topple the elected government. And while the coup plotters have still not been brought to justice, they are now within spitting distance of their ultimate objective, which is seizing executive power and using it to crush the fledgling opposition, impose a one-party system of government, and transform America into a corporate superstate ruled by Global Capital. Here’s a clip from an article by Gary D. Barnett at Lew Rockwell:

“By the end of this next planned phase of the ‘virus’ scare, a global reset of the world economy will be ready to launch. This reset will be mammoth in scope, as everything we have known will be restructured. … Those out of work in the final stage will most likely stay out of work, pushing the dependency state to new levels sought by the ruling class. … Controlling the population will be a key component of the plan, including population size, birth rates, movement, and personal contact among individuals. The elimination of normal human interaction is sought, and this is only the beginning…. The ultimate goal is total control, and every tool in the box of the tyrants will be used to gain that control. Restraint by the ruling class will be non-existent, as this staged reset is now going forward at a very accelerated pace.” (“The Economic Insanity of This Coronavirus Pandemic Plot and the Coming Global Reset“, Lew Rockwell)

The coup plotters have chosen the candidates they want to carry out the next phase of their operation. All they need now is to win the election.

    The title of this piece is misleading- at least to me.

    I thought Whitney was going to state the obvious, that the difference between the “two” parties is largely imaginary, and that it doesn’t matter who wins, the American public is guaranteed bigger government, more laws, higher taxes, and [hard to imagine, but inevitable], even _less_ freedom.

    But no, instead, all he does here is focus on the idiots in the Democratic party, as if Trump is really going to save the US from economic destruction. Obviously, he won’t. It’s merely a case of his party’s fascism/socialism versus the Dems full on communo/fascism.

    “Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule — and both commonly succeed, and are right.” H.L. Mencken

    “The coup plotters have chosen the candidates they want to carry out the next phase of their operation. All they need now is to win the election.”

    Yes, but the coup was bi-partisan, and will continue regardless of whether Trump wins or not. It’s been planned for years [see the Rockefeller Foundations “Operation Lockstep”{2010} , and similar.

    The Dems have shifted over to being the lavishly paid servants of GloboCap and have thus become a gang of traitors to the US. This strategy of tension that’s been taking place has been well funded. Most people are confused as to what and who is behind all this; they just know they’re being squeezed out of their incomes, careers, homes, being intimidated and terrorized at all levels. Future doesn’t look bright with an oncoming new austerity to be imposed. Many millions more will become redundant, even more so than now, so things like schemes to discourage family formation and internal passports to check internal movement will probably be promoted. What’s more lots of stupid Americans will support all that, being bamboozled into thinking it would be the best way to deal with the situation.

  5. SafeNow says:

    The essay makes the important observation that no one at the convention spoke in support of skilled blue-collar jobs. Thus, their plan is to NOT bring the globalized manufacturing jobs home, and, globalize (use migrants) the non-manufacturing jobs by offering free college to all rather than a Germany-like trade-school track. After all, how hard can it possibly be to become an electrician?

    Gardeners are now usually called “landscapers.” But my real, actual, landscaper has a two-year degree in horticulture. He took courses in pesticides, soils management, and so on. When I need to save the life of an ailing tree, the landscaper knows what to do, whereas the gardener can only guess. The Democrats would speak up in favor of the migrant gardener, but not the landscaper.

  6. The Democrats are different from the Republicans in a few crucial ways.

    Open Borders – They want to replace the already dwindling White populace with a permanent underclass of dependent minorities who will vote for free stuff for themselves forever.

    Cultural and Educational Capture – They want to make us hate ourselves so that we don’t object to being replaced. Racism, Sexism, Homophobia, Trans-phobia, Classism, every avenue they can attack from is being used to divide and dispirit us.

    Big Tech Excommunication – They want to cut us off from all social media so that we cannot coordinate and fight back against them. All the Big Tech executives are on their side, and co-operating in shutting up any dissent.

    Socialism/Marxism – They want to replace our Free and Open Markets with a centrally planned economy that they think will be more ‘Fair’.

    Gun Confiscation – They absolutely must disarm the civilian populace if they are to get real control of the nation.

    Well put, Mike Whitney.

    I would note the following:

    a. Plenty of non-whites becoming leery of globalism and all its lies, which means more than a few will vote for Trump in the (I think mistaken) view he actually wants to stop it. Delay, maybe; stop it, no.

    b. We have a situation here that could be similar to South Africa in the recent past, but I am not aware of any bands of “youths” raping and pillaging their way through America’s agricultural areas. From what I can see, the urban USA is seceding from country USA. What might change this is a serious food shortage, power outages, and the like. White folk in the country better do some serious prepping, if they have not already.

    c. There has never been a better time for a real Third Party in America. If Trump loses, the only reason will be a broad realization that Red and Blue are both in plutocrat pockets.

    d. It would help if this potential Third Party was specifically aimed at the American worker and the unique “displacement” all of them have over the last forty years. Base it as broadly as possible. Any nation’s population has a pyramid earning structure and the strength of the base is a measure of how well those above will live. Right now the base is about to disappear.

    There is a nice shpiel in there about how elites figured out that representative democracy gives them so much freedom to act, under a false guise of ‘people power’!

  15. “GloboCap needs to crush Donald Trump… not because he is a threat to the empire…, but because he became a symbol of populist resistance to global capitalism and its increasingly aggressive “woke” ideology . ”
    At first I was unsure the above quote. I still find the idea of Trump being a “symbol” of “popular resistance” to be a stretch. At best Trump is a focus for various conservative elements in society. After all, he is definitely not “woke”…. Of course, Trump is probably a disappointment to those same conservatives.
    However, Mike is correct — in so far as Trump is an impediment to woke ideology he is a danger & needs to be removed. Mike is also correct, wokeness is one of the ruling class’s chief weapons for repression: not only does it look innocent, it looks positively virtuous. But, Wokeness is repressive by its very nature — censoring, alienating & destroying classes of people on the basis of an artificial & abstract ideology.
    (ie not racism but systemic racism — the progressive’s “original sin” — abstract, indeed, metaphysical….)

  16. The article has it right. We can see the triumph of globocapitalist politically correct uniparty fascism should Biden triumph. Trump, though sceptical of elements of the ruling ideology, buys in to too much of it and also lacks the ability and competency to resist the power structure successfully.

    “Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens
    Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page
    Each of four theoretical traditions in the study of American politics—which can be characterized as theories of Majoritarian Electoral Democracy, Economic-Elite Domination, and two types of interest-group pluralism, Majoritarian Pluralism and Biased Pluralism—offers different predictions about which sets of actors have how much influence over public policy: average citizens; economic elites; and organized interest groups, mass-based or business-oriented. A great deal of empirical research speaks to the policy influence of one or another set of actors, but until recently it has not been possible to test these contrasting theoretical predictions against each other within a single statistical model. We report on an effort to do so, using a unique data set that includes measures of the key variables for 1,779 policy issues. Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence. The results provide substantial support for theories of Economic-Elite Domination and for theories of Biased Pluralism, but not for theories of Majoritarian Electoral Democracy or Majoritarian Pluralism. “

    Trump . . . . lacks the ability and competency to resist the power structure successfully.

    That’s very funny. Don’t you read the papers. Who other than Trump could have survived, at least so far, what’s been and continues to be thrown at him?

    Since Trump started succeeding in the primaries it became evident to me at least that one large component of Trump Derangement Syndrome were those not on Team Globalist but possessing overweening resentment toward The Indispensable Man.

    This has only increased as he has survived and they have broken him.

    A POTUS Trump makes a lot of people feel bad about themselves. It isn’t that they’re consumed with their hatred toward him, though many are that too. It’s that they can’t abide his success and efforts on behalf of The American Project and its citizenry.

    What is most alarming is that the Democrats et. al. clearly aren’t trying to win the election the old-fashioned way. They’re building the capacity to steal it on a scale which makes their very substantial efforts in 2016 look like a joke.

    The only question is whether the powers that be will let them launch the U.S. into chaos of unknowable consequences beginning on Election Night.

    Since last year Trump was on track to win reelection in a landslide, winning an historic share of the black and Hispanic vote for a Republican in the modern era. That explains the Democrats and their Allied Media taking all the safeties off their nasty identity politics operation.

    True. Americans, particularly Democrats, no longer believe that any training is necessary to do any job. Californians really believe that an uneducated, untrained Mexican laborer can do the work of a German who is the product of an efficient, high quality education system. They get what they pay for. Mexicans can do the manual part of the work, they just can’t think through problems with which they aren’t familiar.

    California is getting just what her Democratic politicians have bargained for–shoddy workmanship. The Democrat politicians themselves are so incompetent, so ignorant, that they’re not even aware that what they’re getting is substandard. The politicians themselves are basically low class people. Pelosi and the like have no basis for evaluating the quality of what’s before them, having no training in technical matters. They are easily duped.

    Crooks themselves, they are readily tempted by the promise of ill gotten gain derived from plans put before them by other crooks.

    I give you credit for referencing American history, rather than the more prevalent at the moment seeming analogues from abroad (e.g. Chinese Cultural Revolution). Though you’re jumping the gun with Reconstruction.

    Here’s the problem: The days of most people going to the polls on election day, and standing in line for an hour or more to cast their votes on untrustworthy Diebold machines are over. It was deliberately killed by the Covid plan-demic.

    Ask yourself: How many senior citizens (who comprise a huge chunk of volunteer poll workers) will be willing to subject themselves to a 14 hour shift working inside a high-tension polling station when they fear that they might wind up catching Covid? I used to volunteer a few years back and know how hard it was to entice qualified people to work there.

    Due to the lack of election day poll workers alone, Mr. Trump will be unsuccessful in his attempt to stop vote-by-mail. If the election remains close, we may not know the winner for weeks. Democrat vote fraud could be rampant, as states are unable to set up the necessary safeguards in just a few months. No matter who wins, the other side will declare that the election was fraudulent.

    It is clear. the Council of Soups, [<=Council on (International) Foreign Relations, in collaboration with several other such organizations, collectively the owners of the deep state], is running the Governments that controls the nation states that control Americans , that control the states, that control the counties, that control the cities, that control the schools and the flows of tax money from the governed citizens into the federal chasm, and beg for back in order to function.

    So why is implementing even more powerful RF stations closer and closer to everyone so important to the Council of Soup? Because 5g was developed as a crowd control weapon.. Recent molecular biology shows clearly the virus enters humans cells because its S protein disrupt of the Lipids that separate the two membranes in just about every human cell, and in turns out so does 900 Hz RF; both Radio Frequency and the protein on the surface of the virus work in the same way. So does RF let the virus in? The fact that RF disrupts the double membrane of cells is so well known that there is a long standing European Patent claiming ownership to a Council of Soup owned, Deep Stater..

    You could probably learn the “theory of operation” of a violin in a week or two, but it takes years of sustained effort to become either:
    a) a highly skilled violinist, or
    b) a highly skilled violin maker
    The master violin maker most likely can play the instrument, but not at the level of a concert violinist, or “violin operator,” if you prefer.
    The concert violinist will almost certainly be incapable of constructing his/her own instrument.

    As I see it, one of the problems with U.S. society is disrespect for occupations which require physical skill, especially if that involves “getting your hands dirty.”

    Again in my opinion, one large contribution to this attitude is the absolute ignorance and hostility of secondary school teachers, all too many of whom have the mindset that “getting your hands dirty” is only for stupid people (a.k.a. people not like themselves). Since they don’t get their hands dirty, they must be (according to their own worldview), “smart.” Old saying: “Those who cannot do, teach; those who cannot teach, become high school principals, or high school guidance counselors.”

    Two things are worth remembering about Trump: (1) He has at least temporarily slowed the pace at which the enemies of native-born, White, Christian Americans are robbing them of their patrimony. (2) He provides at least the possibility of a political nucleus around which a real political party devoted to preserving the interests of native-born, White, Christian Americans.

    Trump has proved a major disappointment to many if not most of those who voted for him, a bloviating and apparently ineffectual clown. But it is easy to imagine how much worse things would now be had he been defeated in the last election. If Trump wins a second term it may signal to at least a few competent politicians and potential future political leaders that political domination of the USA by plutocratic globalists, criminally violent racial and ethnic power blocks, Zionist oligarchs, and their political stooges is not yet a foregone conclusion.

    Around such bold leaders a new party might form, comprised of those who are currently Trump supporters plus additional elements supporting the ideals and aspirations of the old, pre-1960s Democratic party. The current Democrat Party might be reduced to a rump of radical leftists, anti-White race-baiters, and other assorted counterculture weirdos. The Republican Party might be reduced to an impotent and evanescent shell.

    The result would be a new and dominant political party, devoted to the well-being of the USA’s middle class, supportive of White Christian values, and successfully advocating and implementing policies which promote: (1) real border control; (2) rational immigration and naturalization policies; (3) preservation and promotion of industry within the United States and protection of the USA’s economy against unfair foreign competition; (4) truly race-blind, ethnicity-blind and religion-blind laws and their enforcement; (5) limits on the degree of income and wealth inequality among Americans; (6) cessation of the USA’s foreign aggressions and wars of foreign aggression; (7) Eliminating the baneful influence of Israel on US foreign and domestic policy; (8) destroying the power of the deep state; (9) gradually reducing the USA’s foreign entanglements along with a concommittant reduction in the size of the military; (10) eventual elimination of the military-industrial complex; (10) return to supporting the traditional, European, Christian culture which once made this country great and has been under attack for well over a century;…

How can anyone not see the advanced political chaos that now reigns in the US and the rapidly escalating social and economic chaos being stroked by the elites that are using their control of the media. The election will not change this trajectory.

    You are wasting your time responding to European Greek.
    Most Europeans look down on Americans despite American taxpayer dollars used to provide Europe with a “defense umbrella”. This allows the Europeans to spend wildly on social programs while at the same time allows them to continue their elitist rant on how us Americans are so uncultured and uncivilized.
    As far as I am concerned, we fought on the wrong side in both world wars. We would have been better off supporting Germany’s war against the jewish bolshevik banksters. Us unwitting Americans made the world safe for jewish bolshevism along with the promotion of their phony jewish holohoax (oops, I mean “holocaust™”).
    Europeans conveniently forget that it was American firepower (yes, guns) who “saved” Europe from Germany during both world wars. Firearms were “donated” by Americans to Europe to assist in the”war effort”.
    Germany is presently singing the blues as President Trump is reducing American troop levels in Europe. They will have to spend more on their own defense and less on their social programs.

    It’s never too late to brush up on some history. Before WWI, Armenian Christians were a pastoral group who migrated their flocks up and down the mountainsides with the seasons, crossing roads whenever necessary, and carrying rifles for defense. When the PTB decided to murder a million or so, they first stationed troops at the road crossings and confiscated the Armenian guns, one by one. When they were sure they had all the guns, they came back and had easy pickings killing all who couldn’t escape.

    Pretty much all genocidaires employ some version of the same strategy. So I’d guess your support for abolishing the 2nd Amendment comes through ignorance of history, perhaps. Couldn’t be because you intend to be on the still breathing side afterwards. I could be wrong, I suppose. You do say you are Greek. So you could even conceivably belong to the Salonikan Dönmeh, crypto-Jews, whose members became the ‘Young Turks’ and are widely considered to have effected the Armenian genocide.

    Ah, but Trump has been different. Shortly after he was elected he cancelled the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership). That must have made the globalists’ blood boil.

    He renegotiated NAFTA. He’s been negotiating with China for a new trade deal.

    He refused to sign on to the Climate Conference in Paris, saying what’s the good of the U.S. cutting back if China doesn’t have to.

    He told the people about hydroxychloroquine, much to the horror of the pandemic pushers.

    He’s different in that he’s still standing after the shredding he has taken from the media, the Russiagate hoax, impeachment, etc., etc. Most would have folded up tent by now. Do you think Obama could have handled this onslaught? I highly doubt it.

    He’s different in that he is an outsider AND he doesn’t like globalism. Doesn’t think it’s good for the country’s people.

    But I agree with you that the Dems and “a lot” of Republicans are on the same page. They’ve been bought off or “blackmailed” off by the globalists. Let’s face it, if you don’t play along with the globalists, you do NOT get elected again. They smear your name or Kavanaugh you – or worse – they JFK you.

    The left wing, right wing divide in US never had too much substance. They are both deep-state parties whose primary objective is to keep the rich happy and to keep capitalism chugging along.

    The good cop, bad cop routine – where the Republicans played the bad cop – whose main concern was helping big business, while the liberals were supposed to be concerned with the plight of the working man (sob) is totally meaningless.

    In fact, at the present moment it can be argued that those 2 sides have now flipped. Trump is more of a liberal than the democrats are. How so? There are even talks of Trump bringing UBI which is as socialist as you can get- basically left wing policy.

    Trump is also a patriot, he is concerned about the domestic deplorables, not the foreign ones for which US has no obligations (yet). Democrats are the real phonies, totally in the pockets of the deep state, while pretending that they care about the common man.

    When the communist manifesto declared “Workers of the world unite”, they didn’t mean unite by coming in one place – the west, or particularly US.

    Workers of the world should unite, but stay where they are, and let their home countries solve their problems with a help from the country who has their well-being so much at heart (yeah right).

    The reason why they hate Trump so much is because he is a genuine deep-state member, part of the rich elites and is not as easy to boss around like the usual domestic servants which the political elites in the US are. That’s why the deep state hates him so much, he is not their household help.

    I’ve heard that Trump is donating his presidential salary, which for him is probably just pocket change – just to show the deep state that he is not on their payroll, he is doing his job out of love for his country.

    Trump is their only hope, he might not be the smartest, but his heart is in the right place, he wants to do what’s right for the American people instead of those other deep-state phonies, whose main invention was to use catastrophic levels of immigration as a proof that they are “liberal” eliminating the need to do something for the domestic working class.

This man discloses late in the video that he was a reporter for the Village Voice and Weekly Standard, and I remember reading the by-line in the Village Voice.

    Essentially the assertion is that there was a scheme to spike the Trump campaign in 2016 by accusing him of being a Russian agent, that got blocked by a mysterious faction within the Deep State, but just continued throughout his first turn, turning into a Color Revolution type operation after the scheme finally collapsed in February of this year. But Lee Smith does provide some evidence.

    One thing that confuses me is the degree of collusion between the Clintons and Obama and his faction. Because the globalists could have just arranged for Hillary Clinton to win both the Democratic nomination and the presidency in 2008 and gotten everything they wanted. Why all these complicated schemes? Also it appears everyone important in the American political system is working for some foreign power, with China emerging as the biggest player.

Just last week I had my regular continuation of government briefing. This might interest you because I say to them, ‘This is never going to happen. God-willing it never will.’ But there is a process.

Anyone who can think for himself and is willing to assert and demand his freedom back, whatever his race or religion, we need him.

    But if even our people are too irrational, willfully medically ignorant, and afraid to even attend church without wearing masks and engaging in anti-social distancing, how will they revolt?

    First stop wearing the face-diapers whenever possible, then tell your pastor/priest to defy these restrictions or you switch to a church that does. Tell your dentist, doctor, hairstylist, gym, etc., the same thing, then switch if at all possible (if this requires a lot of driving, so be it).

    Tell store security and police that there is no “law” (statute) requiring the wearing of masks and anti-socal distancing.

    Get and carry a signed, recently dated, notarized letter from a medical doctor instructing you not to wear a mask.

    If we cannot even take these small peaceful steps, if we won’t even refrain from making things as easy and efficient as possible for the police state and the sheeple culture, where will a revolt come from?

    Take the masks off and don’t take flak from ignorant frightened people who don’t like it. Publicly praise and engage anyone, of any race, white, asian, latino, whatever, who is not wearing a mask. Stick up for each other against busybody harridans and security personnel.

    “China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!.” (DJT 24 Jan 2020);

    If Trump adopted Taiwan’s policy, the US would have 6,657 COVID cases and 97 deaths (instead of 5,787,814 cases and 178,91 deaths). Trump’s history as a habitual bankrupt continues now with American victims, witness the brave (DJT 13 Mar 2020):

    “Yeah, no, I don’t take responsibility at all, because we were given a set of circumstances and we were given rules, regulations, and specifications from a different time. It wasn’t meant for this kind of an event [COVID-19] with the kind of numbers that we’re talking about.”

    Whatever that means.

    The guy in charge, confronted with failure, automatically off-loads guilt. How brave! Casino bankruptcies were great training.

    That attitude has led to the destruction of several areas of American industry and the political class seems not to realize that fact, or if they do realize it, seem not to think it matters.

    Yes you are always right. In every detailed analysis.
    But Trump is seriously working on trade imbalances. Those are the greatest danger to the value of the dollar. If Trump is succeeding bringing back jobs home, than anything else is only slight collateral damage. I did not hear any democrats even talking about trade deficits and the danger of growing debt. Obama has added to national debt equal volume as of all president before him.
    Trump did slowed down the grow of debt, But now with corona virus the debt curve started to grow more rapidly.
    Democrats always spend money as drunken sailors, so from economic and financial point of view things do not look rosy for US.

    I’m on the island of Roatan, an island you probably never heard of or else you would have gotten that from my pseudonym on this site. That’s Roatan, Honduras. I moved from the US to Honduras to get away from an overbearing gov’t.

    Now I know what your immediate impression is. Trust me, it’s false. The island was British and was handed over to Honduras a long time ago. The locals speak English or else I wouldn’t be here as the only Spanish I speak is ‘Cervesa por favor’ and ‘Una mas, por favor’.

    Roatan is the above water projection of the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world and, as a scuba diver, is how I learned of the place and spent time here on several vacations. There are 2 cruise ship docks and 1 international airport. There are numerous $Million homes as well as slums, just like everywhere else. The US and Canadian expat population is huge. Most of the businesses are owned by expats and the prominent island families like the Hyde’s, McNabb’s, Jackson’s, Woods, etc.

    My wife and I have (had) businesses here. We’ve been shut down since mid March. The same craziness that infects the US is rampant here also. Since the island economy runs on tourism, it no longer has much of an economy. We’ve been to most of the islands in the Caribbean and South Pacific and they are all in the same boat. They all rely heavily on tourism and now there isn’t any until the face diaper craze subsides. That will take years in my opinion.

    The US has resources, the reserve currency printing press, that can be used to fulfill their evil wishes. Honduras is very short on resources. I don’t normally feel the presence of any gov’t here. There are no stop lights, no stop signs, no cops chasing me with radar guns. Over the years, we’ve had Honduran Supreme Court justices, one President, all local mayors and island governors frequent our businesses. I say hello to them in the supermarket on occasion. Once a year I renew my residency and drivers license and that’s about the extent of my contact with gov’t. I’ve been to mainland Honduras a few times and it is not a place where I’d like to spend a night.

    Right now, there is no place on the planet that wants you as a resident unless you have a few hundred thousand to a few million to spend to purchase their citizenship and that usually takes a year of visits, paperwork, lawyers, etc. Although I believe the presenter is a snake, view some of the YouTube videos from Nomad Capitalist. His information is largely accurate from my experience.

    Let me make my point of view concerning Anna perfectly clear – she’s pissing into the wind. I wouldn’t waste one second trying something that requires gov’t to chastise itself and voluntarily surrender its power. That’s delusional to just plain stupid.

    I assume you know who James Corbett is. He has his head screwed on straight.
    https://hive.blog/news/@corbettreport/resistance-is-fertile

    I doubt anyone will be going anywhere for quite some time. You and I are stuck where we are. As economies all over the world fail and people go hungry, they will make their demands known. People want to go back to work and resume their lives. That force can only be resisted with totalitarianism. Is that the future? It may be, especially in the US, where the bulk of the population is as dumb as a stump politically and monetarily.

    The focus of this fiasco is the US due to the Dollar. I suspect dollars to rush into the US via two mechanisms. Many gov’ts will increase their de-dollarization programs due to the threat of sanctions. Those dollars will find their way back home to increase price inflation (more $ chasing a static or reducing level of goods). Investment dollars will also flood in because the US is perceived to be the cleanest dirty shirt in the laundry basket; also price inflationary. The stock market will continue to rocket higher and then one day, it will run out of fuel. That’s the day when things get real in the US as the domino effect ripples failure throughout the system. Expect bank nationalization, capital controls, restrictions on withdrawals, export/import controls and soldiers on the streets in the major cities.

    You and I are stuck where we are.

    This is likely the case. I’m preparing a move within the US to a more secure and like-minded area, where the real estate and cost of living is considerably lower. But Mexico has been on my mind as a possibility, if I was to leave the US. I imagine the Caribbean could be a good option because it’s small and relatively unimportant on the world scene, thus not in the crosshairs.

    There’s a lot of possible scenarios that can play out and none look good.

    I’m surprise by your comment about Anna and I’m wondering if you don’t have the full picture on her. She filed an estate claim and lien against the Pope (and the pharisees, freemasons & satanic clique that runs the Vatican including the Rothschild bankers).

    http://annavonreitz.com/estateclaim.html

    She’s documented their crimes against humanity and asked them to stand down and self correct. There’s nothing wrong with trying this approach. Similar to when a cop reveals that he has the goods on the criminal and says time to come clean if you want to save what’s left of your life. She’s been ignored which is not surprising. However, she’s been banging the drum for years asking us patriots to stand up our actual government. Starting at the State Assembly level and to restore common law courts so we have jurisdiction to try the criminals partaking in our illegitimate government (same in Australia and most countries). The Services Corporation running our government doesn’t have the authority to operate as our government and Anna cites the actual contract stating the limit to their authority. She and her network have been informing the Sheriff’s, who are key to the overall plan. We’ve been conned since birth (and before). I wish every American would read this:

    https://theamericanstatesassembly.net

    In no way is she saying not to resist. She’s saying we all need to get in the face of our “so called” public officials and push back. If you look at her body of work, she’s laid out the crime is vivid detail for all to understand. She posts articles everyday (1 – 2660) in chronological order in the link below.

    http://annavonreitz.com

    She hosts a conference call every Monday night to help patriots organize and stand up our real government (which has been abandoned and replaced by the Services Corporation) at the grassroots level and they’ve established an organization across 50 states. I’m getting involved because what other option is there? Short of us hunting down the cabal individually which is also a scenario that may play out.

    I believe she’s an outstanding resource and patriot along the lines of Eustace Mullins.

    If you’re looking at Mexico, try the Quintana Roo area or even Belize. You might want to become neighbors to Fred Reed also. Gringos get gringo prices for everything. We’re super rich, you know, so hiking prices is justified. The other thing you have to contend with is that the only thing the locals know how to do is concrete work. They are very good at it. Almost everything else you better be able to handle yourself unless you can find a gringo that has the expertise you need. There is a word for ‘maintenance’ in Spanish, but it apparently doesn’t have any real meaning. If you’re not handy with tools, get a condo and pay for shoddy maintenance.

    I have no clue who Anna is. I will research her for a bit just as a diversion. I had a good friend, Richard (Dick) Simkanin, that tried fighting the US gov’t on the income tax. The InfoWars site has the best description of what happened to him, but even that isn’t completely true. Other sites are pure gov’t propaganda about him and his quest for justice.

    I saw all his ‘proof’ and had to agree he was correct in his assertions, but he ended up in a federal penitentiary and died there. He spent a fortune on researchers and lawyers to discover his position. He was a multi millionaire that took out full page color ads in various national newspapers challenging the Fed Gov to show him where the law states he owed income tax and boldly proclaimed he wasn’t paying until that proof is brought forth. There is no such law that I can find and the Amendment to the Constitution was never verifiably ratified.

    I tried to convince him to move his injection molding plastics business (Arrow Custom Plastics) to Mexico and use his twin engine plane to move materials between DFW and Mexico so he could keep his machine shop and employees in the US. His response was that he wants his day in court to prove his point and that he was an American and not running away. He got his day in court where he was forbidden to even speak towards the end. He was a Christian and didn’t have a malicious bone in his body and the Fed Gov killed him by denying him medical treatment. That was the last straw for me.

    “Trump is seriously working on trade imbalances.”

    I agree with Trump/Navarro’s attempt to reverse/reduce trade deficits and bring back manufacturing to the US. Democrats (Hillary Clinton) would probably have done nothing. But has DJT done it? He says yes:

    “A PROMISE KEPT: President Donald J. Trump is delivering on his promise to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) so all American workers can benefit.” -whitehouse.gov

    Fgures argue otherwise (judge for yourself):

    • Trump/Navarro are responsible for a $251,711,000,000 deficit with Mexico 2017-2019: a 41.44% increase ($73,743,000,000) over the last three Obama years (2014-16, $177,968,000,000).

    • Trump/Navarro are responsible for a trade deficit of $1,140,567,000,000 with China, a 7.71% increase over Obama’s 2014-16 total ($1,058,971,000,000) Plus, Trump (who eschews socialism) has thrown $28,000,000,000 to farmers to buy silence while destroying their livelihood.

    • Trump/Navarro are responsible for a trade deficit of $2,521,173,000,000 with the world, a 13.81% increase over Obama’s 2014-16 total ($$2,215,292,000,000).

    https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/balance/index.html

    Increases in trade deficits means the continued outflow of jobs. One could say it’s all in the (ever increasing) family, given US ‘multinational’ corporations that farm production/tax status/autonomy/irresponsibility world-wide. Many (GE, Amazon) pay no US tax at all. Try that with your local real estate taxes. Who maintains/improves physical infrastructure (roads/storm water drainage/water/sewerage/fire responders/police services? Peasants?

    “If Trump is succeeding bringing back jobs home, than anything else is only slight collateral damage.”

    Agree. Problem? He appears to be failing, regardless of the Kool-Aid. Doubt Dems would be better. That’s the problem (one of many).

    “Trump did slowed down the grow of debt, But now with corona virus the debt curve started to grow more rapidly.”

    Trump floated a $1,000,000,000,000 deficit (highest ever) thanks to his corporate tax breaks and obscene defense spending) prior to COVID-19. He has since tripled it. It will probably be the largest deficit (annual borrowing) in history.

    “I did not hear any democrats even talking about trade deficits and the danger of growing debt.”

    Agree. Always worried me. Imagine if T-Bill auctions become more costly (or none bid!), interest on the US Debt goes up, US becomes Argentina or Weimar, etc.

    Most say that’s not going to happen (though China is trying hard to displace the dollar). Like early Imperial Rome, the US is the standard that wags the world. Very sad, as it promotes incompetence and lunacy in the ruling class. More the point, it makes Americans stupid, indifferent to moral action, compliant to absurd rule.

    The greatest danger is to ourselves, a legacy of partisanship and profligate irresponsibility incapable of producing a sustainable future.

    Professor L. Rafael Reif, President

    77 Massachusetts Avenue
    Cambridge, MA 02139

    Dear President Reif:

    As an alumnus, I am very disturbed by the role ot M.I.T. in the dismissal of Father Daniel Moloney as Roman Catholic chaplain at M.I.T.

    Clearly, the Archdiocese of Boston is free to do as it likes. However, in this case, if information I have is correct, it appears to me that the sacking of Father Moloney was instigated by M.I.T., and the Archdiocese merely acquiesced to the wishes of the Institute.

    Quoting from an article in The American Conservative:
    https://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/sacking-of-father-daniel-moloney-mit-chaplain-archdiocese-of-boston-george-floyd/

    “Suzy Nelson, an MIT vice president and dean for student life, sent an email to students calling Moloney’s comments ‘deeply disturbing.’ “

    I have read the full text of Father Moloney’s remarks. To my mind, Father Moloney’s statement appears to be well reasoned, even handed, and utterly appropriate.

    I am distressed that M.I.T. has apparently chosen to instigate a “hatchet job” on a religious advisor to a part of the M.I.T. community. Although I am not Roman Catholic, I unequivocally support the right of Father Moloney, or anyone else, to speak his mind and obey the dictates of his conscience.

    In the famous words of another clergyman:
    “They came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

    “Concerning China you are incorrect. Obama’s last year deficit was 367 billion. Trump’s last year deficit was 347billion.”

    Nice cherry-picking. I compared both régimes over a three-year period Obama 2014-16 vs. 2017-19, which showed Trump increased the US-China deficit 7.71% and paid $28 billion to American farmers (Trump’s not a socialist?) to keep them quiet.

    Bottom line? Trump insists he’s reversed the imbalance and is bringing jobs back to America. How is that possible when, even the year you pick (2019) has a $345,204,200,000 (not the “$347 billion” you claim) deficit? Deficits mean jobs are still being sent overseas, nicht wahr?

    “So the change is really minuscule. but still downward.”

    Sorry. The 3-year trend continues upward – more jobs sent China (deficit up 7.71%), Mexico (deficit up 41.44%), World (deficit up 13.81). Is there a reason? Princess Ivanka Trump’s trademarks in China?

    “Trump introduced tariffs relatively lately.”

    Are they working? Why are American farmers on the dole?

    “If what you said was true why Chinese are complaining?”

    Deficits speak for themselves. Trump continues to send jobs abroad – especially Mexico (up 41.44%).

    As for Chinese complaints, maybe Xi Jinping doesn’t like being used as a phantom for DJT’s xenophobic self-preservation-no-responsibility agenda (blame everyone else. e.g. COVID on “China- Virus”). Had Trump replicated China’s metrics, the US would have 19,929 cases (instead of 5+ million) and 1,091 deaths (instead of 170,000). Trump blames China and the WHO.

    Or perhaps Xi Jinping didn’t fancy the “most beautiful piece of chocolate cake you’ve ever seen” served at Mar-a-Lago 13 Apr 2017 as Trump informed him 59 missiles had been launched against Syria “all of which hit, by the way, unbelievable, from, you know, hundreds of miles away, all of which hit, amazing…[military technology is] “so incredible.

But after the rulers had come into the gears, they stroke back with immense brutality, crushed the Spartacus uprising and crucified enormous lots of rebelling slaves alongside the Via Appia.
