“Start Throwing Rocks”: Washington Post Op-Ed Calls For More Violence In The Streets

So how did we get to this place? How did we reach a point where America resembles Wiemar Germany, with white nationalists and socialist thugs battling it out on the streets and killing people?

If I were to pick one culprit for this mess, it would be the mainstream media. They’re the ones who have, for the most part, stood behind leftist ideologues for decades, and allowed them to bury public discourse under a wave of identity politics. They are at the very least, partly to blame. They’ve helped stoke divisions in this country that were once faint, or in the process of healing.

And if you don’t think the mainstream media is responsible for nudging our country towards war in the streets, then you should read this op-ed that was recently published by the Washington Post. It was written by N.D.B. Collins, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University. In it, he appears to shamelessly call for the left to spawn more riots and violence in this country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This definitely smacks of Deep State manipulation, in order to see more unrest, which ultimately will result in President Trump being pressured to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and establish martial law, nationally.

More violence will only beget more violence; I cannot believe, for one moment, that Dr. N.D.B. Collins really believes this is the right path to follow.

But agents of the Deep State can come from surprising backgrounds, and have some interesting agendas.

It appears that whoever is sponsoring this article at the Washington Compost, is hoping such violence will have President Trump invoke martial law, so that
the warmongers in President Trump's cabinet, can get their wars on, with even peaceful protest forbidden.

Conspiracy or Chaos: “The Farce Of Competing Political Parties Is A Smoke Screen Used By The Deep State To Maintain Their Control” - James Quinn

It ultimately comes down to power and control over the key mechanisms of finance, taxation, legislation and the media. There isn’t one specific group of conspirators working together to rule the world. Is George Soros attempting to influence and control what happens in the U.S. and Europe to benefit his interests? Yes. Are the Koch brothers attempting to do the same with a different end goal? Yes. Are Pelosi and Schumer conspiring to push their left wing agenda? Yes. Are McConnell and Ryan conspiring to implement their establishment vision? Yes.

Socrates discusses death of democracy, hubris of empire, devolution to civil war. ‘We the People’ of the US’ choice: follow that path OR demand .01% arrests for OBVIOUS crimes of war, looting, lying

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The strong do what power allows. The weak accept what they must.” – Athenian 415 BC envoy to the small government of Melos, with the offer to either join Athens’ empire with paying them tribute, or have all men executed, and everyone else sold into slavery. Melos politely declined Athens’ offer. Athens attacked, did exactly what they threatened, and resettled the emptied island with 500 Athenian colonists. – Melian Dialogue of Socrates’ contemporary historian, Thucydides.

language warning: Socrates and I speak in the same direct language that caused his execution for “corrupting the young.”

With potential threat of US civil war, perhaps staged by .01% oligarchs fearing their discovery and arrests, let's consider Socrates' analysis to a similar challenge. He explains from my 2016 "interview" with him:

Carl: Socrates! Welcome back!

Freedom for Speech (Especially the speech you hate)

The whole purpose of the First Amendment is to encourage open, wide, robust debate about the policies of the government and the people who run it. It would be antithetical to that purpose for the government itself to decide what speech is acceptable and what is not in public discourse.

The U.S. Military Will Be Conducting ‘A Major Military Exercise’ On The Korean Peninsula During The Solar Eclipse

The U.S. military is preparing to launch a major military exercise with South Korea in coming days, and faces a dangerous balancing act: How do you reassure allies in the region that you are ready for a war with North Korea without provoking an actual conflict in the process?

Americans are Rapidly Descending Into Madness

What’s worse, this environment is providing a backdrop for the most destructive people of my lifetime — neoconservatives and neo liberals — to preen around on corporate media as “the voices of reason.” This is one of the most perverse and dangerous side-effects of the current political climate.

If war comes, don’t blame the ‘Military-Industrial Complex’ — things are even worse than you think

The Soviet nomenklatura gave up without a fight. It’s unlikely its American counterpart will. Whether Trump in the end decides to fight or to seek accommodation is still under debate. Some suggest that by signing the recent bill imposing sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea, he has already surrendered. But either way, war or not, things are going to get very rocky.

TAKING DOWN THE REAL MONUMENTS TO SLAVERY

European-America is being stolen; with hardly any notice or opposition, white, European America is being deconstructed. All over the South, America’s history, monuments, heritage, identity and culture is being erased.

Marxists, nihilists, Zionists/Communist, deconstructionists, envious haters and the programmed response of egalitarianism as a new age religion, are eviscerating the Euro-American cultural/historical heritage of America.

Scott Adams Tells You How to Know When You Are in a Mass Hysteria Bubble

History is full of examples of Mass Hysterias. They happen fairly often. The cool thing about mass hysterias is that you don’t know when you are in one. But sometimes the people who are not experiencing the mass hysteria can recognize when others are experiencing one, if they know what to look for.

I’ll teach you what to look for.

Condi Rice Destroys Liberals With a History Lesson About Slavery

After what happened in Charlottesville, the topic is especially timely, which is why Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade immediately asked her an important question: “I want to talk about where your book starts, and that’s our Constitution. As an African-American woman, do you see yourself in this Constitution? Do you think that, when we look at nine of our first twelve presidents as slave owners, should we start taking their statues down and say, we’re embarrassed by you?”

Without hesitation, Rice fired back: “In a word, No.” She continued, “I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you.’ So I don’t actually want to rename things that were named for slave owners. I want us to have to look at those names, and realize what they did, and be able to tell our kids what they did and for them to have a sense of their own history.”

Then, she added, “When you start wiping out your history; sanitizing your history to make you feel better? It’s a bad thing.”

Who Keeps Americans in the Dark?

Earlier this week, senior Tablet magazine writer Yair Rosenberg pointed out in a Washington Post article that the White nationalists who gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia targeted the Jews.

“ They (the White Nationalists) immediately went after the Jews,” Rosenberg writes. They “chanted anti-Semitic and Nazi slogans, including “blood and soil” and “Jews will not replace us” — all crafted to cast Jews as foreign interlopers who need to be expunged. The attendees proudly displayed giant swastikas and wore shirts emblazoned with quotes from Adolf Hitler. One banner read, “Jews are Satan’s children.”

This is an important and genuine observation by Rosenberg. He suggests that the white nationalists are fully aware that that they are in a battle with ‘the Jews.’ The Jews also seem to acknowledge that they are at war with the White Nationalists and that this broad category includes the American President* who according to the Jewish press took side with the ‘Nazis’.

Chaos in Charlottesville: No One Gave Peace a Chance, Including the Police

Let’s be clear about one thing: no one—not the armed, violent, militant protesters nor the police—gave peace a chance during the August 12 demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va.

What should have been an exercise in free speech quickly became a brawl.

It’s not about who threw the first punch or the first smoke bomb.

It’s not about which faction outshouted the other, or which side perpetrated more violence, or even which group can claim to be the greater victim.

One young woman is dead because of the hate, violence, intolerance, racism and partisanship that is tearing this country apart, and it has to stop.

US War Games Likely to Trigger Another North Korea Missile Test - Seoul

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula appeared to ease up following intense saber-rattling by the US and North Korean sides last week, but once Pyongyang’s leaders observe the US ramping up war games again, another ballistic missile test may be imminent, Seoul warns.

Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills are slated to commence on Monday, Korean media reported Wednesday. "There is a great possibility that North Korea will carry out strategic or tactical provocations to protest the latest UN sanctions and the UFG exercises," the South Korean Defense Ministry said in a statement to the nation’s lawmakers.

Military exercises in which US forces essentially rehearse and practice attacking the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) "are not funny to [North] Korea," Radio Sputnik Loud & Clear host Brian Becker said Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, a logical question here: how in heaven's name can Kim Jung Un NOT see US war games, right off the cost of North Korea, practicing how to invade his country, as a "dangerously provocative act"?!?

And frankly, I do not have a good answer for this.

Trump calls removal of Confederate monuments 'so foolish'

President Donald Trump on Thursday denounced the removal of monuments to Confederate figures as "sad" and "so foolish," days after white supremacists and neo-Nazis took to Charlottesville, Virginia, to violently protest the planned removal of a statue of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments," Trump said in a series of tweets. "You can't change history, but you can learn from it."

Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville? Here's what witnesses say

The clashes that broke out over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., have become a new touchstone in the nation’s long-running debate over racism, free speech and violence.

One woman was killed and many more injured when a car, allegedly driven by a rally participant, sped into a crowd of anti-racism protesters. Two state troopers monitoring the action died in a helicopter crash later in the day, though no foul play was suspected.

The event quickly took on enormous political importance as Democrats and Republicans alike denounced the violence and the white supremacist views espoused at the far-right rally. President Trump has also denounced the racist groups, but he suggests that anti-racism counter-demonstrators share some of the blame. On Tuesday, he said “both sides” were responsible for the bloodshed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking/listening at the reports of this incident, President Trump was absolutely correct in his assessment; both the Neo-Nazis and Antifa bore responsibility for the deaths and injuries here.

ARE THESE GMO MEATLESS BURGERS SAFE TO EAT? THE FDA ISN’T SURE

The FDA informed the manufacturer of Impossible Burger – a meat-like burger made using only plants – that it had not yet proven that the product’s key genetically modified (GM) ingredient is safe for consumption. The company, Impossible Foods, decided it knew better and launched the product anyway. [1}

The GMO faux-meat burgers are available at 43 restaurants nationwide, including several burger chains.

Impossible Foods maintains that its SLH/heme is identical to the SLH already in the food supply, but Impossible Foods had no safety testing data to support that claim, said Michael Hansen, a senior scientist at Consumers Union.

Hansen explained:

“You are taking something that has never been in the food supply before and you come to the FDA, say it is GRAS, and you have no safety data, particularly from feeding studies. Their argument has literally come down to saying this is exactly identical to the heme we’ve always been eating, but it’s not true.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great to know that we have an FDA which doesn't mandate food product safety before a product is introduced to an unsuspecting public!!

Why is there no halt in production of this product, until safety testing is truly finished?!?

As Leak Probes Abound, Tillerson Promotes Diplomat Who Passed Classified Info To AIPAC: The promotion of David Satterfield comes as the Trump administration cracks down on leakers elsewhere in the government.

As the Trump administration widens its crackdown on unauthorized leaks to the press, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has promoted a diplomat who provided classified information to an influential pro-Israel lobbying organization that resulted in espionage charges.

David Satterfield, a long time Middle East hand with extensive experience in the region, has been named acting assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, a State Department official told BuzzFeed News.

In 2005, federal prosecutors said Satterfield provided classified national security secrets to a top lobbyist for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a powerful special interest group known simply as AIPAC. The accusation was included in an indictment that charged two former AIPAC employees, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, and a former Pentagon official, Lawrence Franklin, under the Espionage Act with illegally trafficking in classified information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Hey, as long as classified information goes to Israel, it's perfectly OK!!" - Official State Department Souse.

What if the DNC Russian “hack” was really a leak after all? A new report raises questions media and Democrats would rather ignore

Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016. Instead, the report alleges, the DNC suffered an insider leak, conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, when the DNC embraces a false narrative, it embraces it all the way!!

Former Mrs. America convicted of stealing $5,500 from Macy’s in Minnesota

A former Mrs. America was convicted Tuesday in Hennepin County District Court of stealing $5,500 from Macy’s by switching the price tags on clothes she returned.

A jury found Jennifer Kline, 51, of Wayzata, guilty of one count of theft by swindle after a seven-day trial. She is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 18.

In November 2015, Kline spent nearly $5,800 on clothing at the Southdale Macy’s in Edina, paying for her purchases with a credit card, according to the criminal complaint.

Kline removed the tags from the items and attached them to clothing she already owned, before “returning” the items to the Macy’s in the Mall of America and receiving a $5,501 refund on her credit card, the charges said.

Gettysburg park officials: Confederate monuments here to stay

Despite national discourse on the appropriateness of Confederate monuments, the ones in Gettysburg are not going anywhere, according to park officials.

The movement to take down monuments honoring figures from the Confederacy came to a boil on Saturday when three people died in Charlottesville, Va., during a white supremacist rally to protest plans to remove a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee.

FBI Admits Federal Informants Linked to Deadly Charlottesville Riots; Unlikely To Face Charges

FBI insiders said it is unlikely leaders of the radical groups that clashed in demonstrations turned deadly in Charlottesville, VA will face prosecution.

Why?

FBI said they have already identified several federal informants who participated in the mob-like riots over the weekend in Virginia. The FBI is also now working those sources to piece together the events from Charlottesville, sources said.

But FBI agents have deemed the newly-minted investigation dicey, having to navigate separate agreements with embedded intelligence assets while trying to pinpoint responsibility for the violence.

Late Saturday, the Justice Department announced the federal probe. The investigation, spearheaded by the Richmond, VA FBI field office, was launched after an Ohio man drove his car through a crowd of demonstrators killing one woman and injuring dozens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This sickens me.

IF, in fact, paid FBI agents were actually here, what was their function, other than intel?!?

Was it to worsen the mood of the mob to the point where violence would be the inevitable result?!?

At this moment, if there was an FBI order to foment rage and rioting on the part of these informants, whoever gave that order person needs to be sacked, immediately, and publicly, by President Trump.

Because in allowing these riots to move forward, it caused deaths, massive injuries, and deeply scarred the soul of this nation in a way that it might not be able to ultimately survive or overcome.

SAUDI GOVERNMENT SECRETLY ABDUCTING ITS CRITICS FROM ABROAD, SAY DISSIDENTS

At least three prominent Saudi dissidents living in Europe, who openly criticized Saudi Arabia’s system of government, have been illegally abducted by the country’s monarchy in the past two years, according to a report by the BBC. All three, who are members of the Saudi royal family, are missing, believed to be dead or held against their will in Saudi Arabia. But the country’s government will not comment on their fate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely like to remind both the British and American governments that this is the same Saudi government to which they feel perfectly comfortable selling weapons, with which to assassinate women, children, and the medically fragile elderly in Yemen.

KKK LEADER HAS HISTORY AS FBI INFORMANT

The contingent of the Ku Klux Klan that has applied to hold a July rally in Charlottesville is reportedly led by an FBI informant who has been charged in the stabbing of another Klan member.

To Katch a Klansman: FBI Informant Behind Recent KKK Fliers in Raleigh

July 20, 2016 – Fliers distributed in Raleigh and other North Carolina cities last weekend urging residents to join the Ku Klux Klan are part of an apparent nationwide recruiting drive for the white supremacist organization with one minor twist: the phone number and websites listed trace back to a Klan chapter whose leader is a reported FBI informant.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This is a highly scripted insurgency on the part of this government to topple its President, and by any means necessary.

Flashback: The Ku Klux Klan opens its door to Jews, homosexuals and black people in bizarre recruitment drive

It's a white supremacist organisation notorious for homophobic and racist violence, including the lynchings of black people.

But the Ku Klux Klan is now looking to diversify and increase its membership to include Jews, black people, homosexuals and those of Hispanic origin with a re-branding as 'the new Klan'.

All those wanting to join the extreme right-wing group will still have to wear the white robes, masks and conical hats and take part in rituals, according to founder John Abarr.

The rebranded organisation, called the Rocky Mountain Knights, claims to now stand for 'a strong America' rather than irrational hatred.

Are these the racist white supremacists the corporate media is currently squealing about?

CNN flashback: A kinder, gentler Ku Klux Klan? 'We do not hate anyone,' imperial wizard says

"We're not racists," Chambers told CNN Monday. "We just want to be with white people. If that's a crime, then I don't know. It's all right to be black and Latino and proud, but you can't be white and proud. I don't understand it."

Harley Hanson, who filed the application to adopt the highway for the International Keystone Knights Realm of Georgia, concurred: “I love my race. Does that make me wrong? I’m proud to be white,” he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Today, when speaking to leaders of the Klan, you won't hear racial epithets or a denunciation of any ethnic groups.

"We do not hate anyone,” said Frank Ancona, the imperial wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. “The true Ku Klux Klan is an organization that is looking out for the interests of the white race. It is a fraternal organization, and we do good works.”

Charlottesville

Listening to NPR this morning confirmed what I already knew. Charlottesville is being turned into another nail in President Trump’s coffin.

NPR had no interest whatsoever in reporting the actual facts about what had occurred in Charlottesville. The several “interviews” with the like-minded were orchestrated to produce the desired propaganda result: It was all Trump’s fault.

It was Trump’s fault for many reasons. He had stirred up White Supremacists and Nazis by appealing during the presidential election campaign to their supremacist views with his slogan “America first.”

Of course, what Trump means by “America first,” is precisely what the voters understood him to mean—the interest of the broad American public should come before trade deals that serve the interests of other countries and the narrow profit interests of global corporations. However, the NPR propagandists put words in Trump’s mouth and twisted the meaning of the slogan to be “White America Comes First.”

“We must never celebrate those who defended slavery and tried to destroy the union,” Abrams said in a series of tweets posted early Tuesday, a response to the deadly violence sparked by white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Va.

Removing the faces of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson would take a monster of a sandblaster and require a change in state law. The Georgia code has a clear mandate for the memorial, saying it should be “preserved and protected for all time as a tribute to the bravery and heroism of the citizens of this state who suffered and died in their cause.”

Black lawmakers say Confederate statues should come out of Capitol

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus are reviving calls to remove Confederate statues from the Capitol following the violence at a white nationalist rally in Virginia.

The “Unite the Right” rally of white supremacists and the subsequent clashes with counterprotesters began as a protest against the Charlottesville city council’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Since the rally, other localities have moved to take down Confederate statues — and some lawmakers think the Capitol should consider following suit.

FUNCTIONAL ILLITERATES TRYING TO ERASE HISTORY

Robert E. Lee, before the outbreak of the war, was overwhelmingly regarded as the finest military mind in the U.S. army. Winfield Scott offered him command of all Union forces at the outbreak of hostilities. But he chose allegiance to his state of Virginia, rather than the Federal government. He didn’t fight for slavery. He freed his slaves. He was fighting for states’ rights. He was an honorable God fearing noble man. Stonewall Jackson was an extremely religious man who waged war with a passion, but also taught Sunday School to slaves. Lee and Jackson must be viewed in the context of the 19th century rather than being judged by the standards of the 21st century.

Iran Threatens to Quit Nuclear Deal If US Keeps Adding Sanctions

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, replaying to the latest round of US sanctions and threats, insisted his country remains committed to the P5+1 nuclear deal for the time being, despite repeated US violations. He warned this could change, however.

Iran has repeatedly sought redress for violations to mediators of the deal, but the US has continued to reimpose sanctions they removed under the deal, coming up with new pretexts, usually pretexts very light on details. Rouhani warned that if this continues, Iran might be forced to quit the nuclear deal.

Rouhani said US actions prove they can’t be trusted to deal fairly over the pact. Iran’s parliament, particularly the hardliners, are pressuring him to make some sort of reaction, and this is likely Rouhani’s attempt to warn the other five signatories that the deal could be at risk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I kind of hate it when a guy I don't particularly care for, is absolutely correct, as Rouhani is on his assessment of the US's behaviour regarding the P5+1 Agreement.

This laying on of more sanctions against Iran, on issues which have nothing to do with the actual agreement, are simply fabricated out of thin air.

And then we have this very worrying story, out of antiwar.com from yesterday:

Nikki Haley Accuses Iran of ‘Holding the World Hostage’ With Nuclear Deal: State Dept Vows to Keep Sanctioning Iran for Non-Nuclear Reasons
The story goes on to say:

"Many in the Trump Administration are openly hostile toward the nuclear deal, and Haley suggested Iran was using the existence of the deal as a pretext for “support for terrorism, disregard for human rights, and violations of UN Security Council resolutions.”

These allegations are built largely not on anything Iran’s done, but on consistent US efforts to undermine the pact with new sanctions to replace those they were required by the deal to lift, with Haley suggesting Iran thinks it’s immune to getting those sanctions back so long as they comply with the nuclear deal."

It's very clear what the White House is doing here; pressuring Iran to leave the P5+1 deal through these sanctions, as a prelude to a military action against it.

And of course, Israel's Netanyahu would love to see Israel's alleged "existential threat" in the region "neutralized" (but only, mind you, at the costs of American blood and American money).

This administration has gone down a very dark path of accusing countries it doesn't like, or wants to regime change, of doing what they haven't, then punishing them for it.

I can think of no more painfully clear examples of that than of the US sanctioning Russia for allegedly "annexing" Crimea, which it did not, in 2014.

The same thing holds true here with Iran.

But I would like to very carefully caution President Trump that such a military action against Iran, may come at an horrific cost to the US military.

Russian officials and military have pledged, should Iran be attacked, to come to its defense militarily. This means that there will be a war with Russia, as well as with Iran.

And right now, the US military doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, the troop strength, or the weaponry to compete effectively against Russia in a military showdown over Iran. The Russian weaponry in Syria shows that it has had some major technological breakthroughs, and that weaponry is now in high demand around the world:

And what can the US offer in terms of weaponry?!? I give you... the Lockheed Martin F-35, the Edsel in the living room of military hardware

The F-35 is still an expensive mess

SOME QUESTIONS FOR U.S. CITIZENS

Many readers asked me (also as a US citizen) to comment in this blog on what is going on in race relations in the USA. I will briefly say that the politicians who criticize Trump (both republicans and democrats) are hypocritical. These same politicians who criticize Trump and his racist minions never challenged hate directed at Muslims and Arabs in general. The white nationalists and supremacists who are calling for ethnic cleansing and for hate are no different than the Zionists that they adore and fund and who do far more violence and atrocities. The hypocrisy in the US is more blatant and sickening than the thugs that caused the mayhem in Charlottesville. But what worries us more is that the distractions can allow us to slide more into a nuclear world war (please watch news related to Iran and North Korea).

IN PHOTOS ~~ ONLY IN AMERIKA ARE TERRORISTS PROTECTED BY THE POLICE

On Monday, 8/14, there was a massive demonstration at Trump Towers – thousands participated. It was in protest of his policy on N. Korea as well as his statement which equated the anti-fascists in Charlottesville with the Nazi, white supremist, Klu Klux Klan and anti-Semitic marchers. At the same time a demonstration was taking place at Union Sq. organized by Samidoun in solidarity with Rosmea Udeh. When Samidoun arrived they were met by an equal number of JDL who came to counter-protest the Samidoun demonstration.
