How to Survive the Civil Unrest That’s Coming to America

The rhetoric in the United States is heating up and we’re sounding anything but…well…united. It seems to most media pundits like we are too far down the path to Civil War 2.0 to turn back now. Activists are laying siege to government offices. Threats toward people who disagree are growing in ferocity. It’s ugly and getting uglier. It’s a powder keg that is about to erupt. (Here are some ...Read full article...

US Media Deliberately Trying to Spawn Civil War 2.0

Everyone is talking about a looming civil war on American soil, but they’re all blaming the “other” side. The media is deliberately trying to stir things up with breathless headlines about how awful the “other” side is. And it’s working so well it could lead us right to Civil War 2.0. (Here’s what you need to know to be prepared for widespread civil unrest.) The fact is, both the Left ...Read full article...

What are Donald Trump’s positions?

Donald Trump continually denounced the American Empire, and announced the return to Republican principles. Elected for his promises to change the paradigm, President Donald Trump continues to astonish all those who take him for an idiot. Yet all he is doing is implementing the ideas that he developed during his electoral campaign, thus taking his place in a political tradition which, although long neglected, is solidly anchored in US ...Read full article...

Poverty and Deprivation in America

America is a land of extremes – unprecedented wealth enjoyed by a privileged few contrasted with deep poverty because of neoliberal harshness, bipartisan force-fed austerity, grievously harming the nation’s most vulnerable. American exceptionalism’s dark side is damning. Poverty, homelessness, hunger, unemployment, underemployment, and deprivation harm countless millions. Both right wings of US duopoly governance are complicit in serving privileged interests exclusively – Wall Street, other corporate predators, and high-net ...Read full article...

Trump to G7: I’ll let go when you do

Canada alone has over 300% tariffs on US products and Europe has a similar amount.  The G-7 summit in the Canadian resort of La Malbaie has left at least two photos that serve as a metaphor to describe what seems to have happened inside. One of them is the handshake between Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron, so hard on the part of the Frenchman that his thumb was marked ...Read full article...

It’s Against the Law in California to Shower and Do Laundry on the Same Day

Governor Jerry Brown is retiring but not before he passes a few draconian laws as parting gifts for California. Two bills were signed into law on Thursday of last week to “help California be better prepared for future droughts and the effects of climate change.” The mandatory water conservation standards will be permanent, according to their wording, and not just for use in times of crisis. To make a ...Read full article...

43% of Americans Can’t Pay for Food and Rent

While many Americans are still doing okay, the specter of poverty looms over many of us. Many of us know that we’re one personal financial catastrophe away from disaster. You know all those reports about how lots of Americans can’t afford a $1000 surprise expense like a medical bill or a car repair? Well, forget additional expenses. It turns out that nearly half of the families in America are struggling to pay ...Read full article...

Washington forces its allies to accept a bipolar world

By firing missiles on Syria with its French and British allies, the strange President Donald Trump has managed to force the Western powers to accept the end of their unilateral domination of the world. The insignificant result of this demonstration of force drags NATO back to reality. Without having made use of its weapons, Russia now succeeds the Soviet Union in the balance of world power. ver the last ...Read full article...

Why are the media involved in advocacy of undemocratic agendas?

Recent polls show that a majority of Americans believe that gun ownership makes people safer. Americans do not believe that people should be denied safety because of an occasional nutcase or a staged shooting to advance the gun control agenda. Indeed, they wonder who is behind the gun control agenda. They wonder about the dumbshits who are protesting the Second Amendment instead of Washington’s rush into conflict with Russia. ...Read full article...

Donald Trump Held Hostage in the White House

Trump’s actions show weakness, not strength – bowing to pressure, abandoning his inauguration day promises straightaway on taking office. He yielded authority to dark forces running things in Washington, appointing a rogue’s gallery of neocons to key administration posts. They notably include hugely dangerous Russophobic/Islamophobic extremists, figures committed to endless wars of aggression, wanting all sovereign independent governments forcefully toppled, an agenda risking catastrophic nuclear war. Trump gave up ...Read full article...

This is how both Republicans and Democrats are Gutting the Second Amendment

Everyone likes to blame the Democrats for gun control, but here’s a news flash: those of us who fervently believe in the Second Amendment are actually being betrayed by members of the Republican party who are in Congress right now. The budget bill on the table right now would gut the right to bear arms for millions of Americans, it’s already passed the House and Senate, and the Congress ...Read full article...

The New Color Line: American Suicide Is In The Cards

Identity Politics is turning white people into a delegitimized group that it is permissible to hate and to discriminate against. White Americans are being turned into undesirables and are being delegitimized just as Jews were delegitimatized in Nazi Germany. Curiously enough, as I understand it, the Identity Politics being used to delegitimize white people has its roots in the Jewish cultural Marxism of the Frankfort School. Most Americans are ...Read full article...

Five of the World’s Most Violent Cities are in the United States

When you think of the most dangerous, violent cities in the world, do you picture slums in Third World countries with vicious drug cartels or arrogant warlords? Maybe the kind of violence where enemies are decapitated and whole families are murdered seem like things that happen far away in some terrifying, exotic locale. Some of this is true – but FIVE of the world’s most violent cities are right ...Read full article...

Parkland teacher, Stacy Lippel, describes shooter as police in full armor

Why is Google/YouTube taking down videos and threatening posters? Scroll down this URL to the last video of the blond female student at Parkland, Alexa Miednik. She says she walked out of the building with the alleged shooter, Nikolas Cruz, while shots were still occurring in other parts of the building. This Parkland teacher, Stacy Lippel, describes the shooter as police in full armor. Notice that Lippel also says the shooting ...Read full article...

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres: US Imperial Tool

Like his predecessors, Guterres was appointed to serve US and other Western interests exclusively. His actions and public remarks speak for themselves, supporting what demands denunciation, breaching the mandate he swore to uphold as secretary-general. Days earlier, he addressed Security Council members on the Middle East. What he omitted from his remarks was far more important than what he said. On Iraq, nothing about Washington’s rape and destruction of ...Read full article...
