Globalists Want To Destroy Conservative Principles - But They Need Our Help

For months now, long before the 2016 election, I have been warning about a specific social dynamic which is likely to lead to a form of civil war within the U.S.; namely, the reality that people on the left side of the political spectrum would become despondent at the inevitable loss of their candidate, Hillary Clinton, and that they would react by becoming far more militant. In my article 'Order Out Of Chaos: The Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost', published November post-election, I stated:

“When I mentioned in my last article the crippling of social justice, I did not mention that this could have some negative reverberations. With Trump and conservatives taking near-total power after the Left had assumed they would never lose again, their reaction has been to transform. They are stepping away from the normal activities and mindset of cultural Marxism and evolving into full blown communists. Instead of admitting that their ideology is a failure in every respect, they are doubling down.

When this evolution is complete, the Left WILL resort to direct violent action on a larger scale, and they will do so with a clear conscience because, in their minds, they are fighting fascism.”

I believed at that time that the social-justice cult would lose mainstream influence but that the existing minority would resort to even more insidious tactics and greater violence to get what they want; and, the so-called "moderate left" would cheer them on.  As it turns out, I have been proven right so far.

Not that extreme Leftists have been averse to violence over the past year, but I think it is safe to say that the volume on the cultural Marxist machine has been turned up a notch. The riot at UC Berkeley over a scheduled speech by gay, conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos is a perfect example:

Then, there was the raid by SJWs at NYU on a speech by conservative journalist and comedian Gavin McInnes, in which they shouted down all discussion with mindless chants until the event had to be canceled. This was, of course, after they had already physically attacked people outside the building, including McInnes:

The social justice mantra is changing. At first, it was predominately about forming mobs to “shame” target political opponents into silence. Now, it is about forming mobs to do what they call “punching Nazis.” Leftists are now often seen regurgitating the claim — “This is only the beginning…”

I agree, this IS only the beginning. The Left is driven not only by the ideology of cultural Marxism, but also a very specific activist strategy outlined in Saul Alinsky’s 'Rules For Radicals'. The very core of Alinsky’s method revolves around one important rule in particular: the ends justify the means.

This is the key ingredient of moral relativism, and when a movement is motivated by moral relativism, there is no limit to the depths they will sink to get their way. Activists adopting the “ends justify the means” mentality are not interested in being “right,” or wise, or rational or logical or factual; they ONLY care about “winning.” This is their goal, and they will do anything to achieve it.

It is important to note, however, that all of these protests and the increase in violence is not taking place in a vacuum. As many liberty analysts have noted, Trump has hardly had time to do anything yet that would warrant national protests. Is Trump really the only catalyst? Not quite. The mainstream media and globalists like George Soros have been very effective in agitating or outright paying protesters and provocateurs to generate zombie mobs of gullible Leftists to use as a billy club for harassing conservatives.

That said, I want liberty activists and analysts to ponder on this for a moment — to what end is this being done? Why is Soros so interested in fomenting leftist rage? Is it designed to overthrow Trump? To initiate mob action and frighten conservatives into silence? Or do the globalists have a greater and more important goal in mind?

I have been writing often on the idea of 4th Generation Warfare the past month, and I think my readers are now well versed in the concept of the “three-steps-ahead” style of tactics, as well as the concept of manipulating an opponent to destroy himself, rather than fighting him directly. These are not new methods, the globalists have merely taken them to the next level.

But how do 4th Gen warfare tactics apply to the current Right vs. Left scenario in the U.S.? Well, everything is not as obvious as it seems.

As I outlined in-depth in my article Clinton Versus Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement, globalists and the leftist media have been, in a strange way, quietly cheering for Trump, but only as a tool for absorbing the liberty movement (what they still call the “Tea Party”). This glee is made rather evident in an article published by Bloomberg in August titled The Tea Party Meets Its Maker.

There is a point I have been trying to make for most of the year that I think has been consistently missed by many in the liberty movement. That point being that the greatest danger to conservatives is NOT militant Leftists, but how we RESPOND to militant Leftists. That is to say, I believe the globalists are using the Left as a cattle prod to enrage conservatives and lure us into abandoning our principles in the name of defeating Marxists.

Consider this; the argument among most liberty analysts has been that the numerous anti-Constitutional programs put in place by the Obama administration in the past eights years would eventually be used by the political Left and the globalists as weapons to subdue and destroy conservatives and patriot groups. While Obama certainly tested the waters of tyranny over and over again, up to and including using executive orders to assassinate American citizens without trial, it is clear that those extensive powers afforded to the White House are no longer in the hands of the left; they are in the hands of Trump.

Obama even signed the “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” into law AFTER Trump had already won the White House. Trump has now inherited this power as well, which seems to give government the authority to harass or even silence news sources they deem “fake news.” While many liberty activists cried foul and warned of a “coup” designed to shut down alternative news sites and thwart Trump’s inauguration, I warned that there was a much more dangerous scenario in play.

What will conservatives do in the face of the leftist mob funded by globalists and growing ever more vicious? Well, what do the globalists expect us to do? I think they expect us to look at all the government powers we once admonished as unConstitutional and say “hey, maybe these laws and executive orders are not so bad after all…”

I think the globalists are handing us the incredible temptation of far reaching bureaucratic power, and they expect us to abuse that power, as almost anyone would.

As an alternative analyst I am privy to trends in the liberty movement and in conservative circles that might not be immediately obvious to casual readers. Already, I am witnessing calls among conservatives to abuse government power to defeat the Left. I have seen comments such as:

“Trump should use the NDAA to imprison these leftists indefinitely…”

“The only solution is to throw the leftists into FEMA camps…”

“Trump needs to shut down the leftist media…”

“Sometimes it is okay to bend the rules of the constitution if you have the right president…”

And comments like this are popping up everywhere in liberty media boards. Now, I recognize that some of this talk is being posted by paid disinformation agents and provocateurs, but, I have heard regular conservatives and patriots, people who are long time proponents of the Constitution, echo similar sentiments.

I often use the analogy of the “One Ring” from The Lord Of The Rings to describe big government power. I really can’t find a better fictional symbol. Anyone who comes into possession of the “one ring” is eventually corrupted by it. Many good people believe that its darker energy can be contained and directed for good purposes, but they, too, are ultimately undone by it. The only answer, the only solution, is to abandon the ring, or to destroy it.

Overt government power is very much the same; it corrupts any person or group that comes in contact with it. Every group thinks that if only THEY were in possession of government that they would do things differently. This is a delusion. No person or group is benevolent enough to handle this responsibility, and this includes conservatives. Many groups would commit egregious and heinous crimes to take government for themselves, or keep it for themselves, all the while so many Saurons (globalists) laugh and smack their lips as the masses battle over numerous rings of power.

As I have noted time and time again for the past several months, Trump is the perfect tool for scapegoating conservative movements for the economic crisis the elites have already engineered. But, this is only one part of the agenda. In the midst of chaos generated by financial calamity, the morals of an entire society can become "malleable".  The most important target of the globalists is not only conservatives, but the conservative philosophy. They don’t just want to annihilate conservatives today, they want to annihilate conservatives for all time.

The globalists cannot accomplish this task without our help. They NEED us to adopt an attitude of moral relativism, much like the Left. They need us to turn into totalitarians. They need us to become the monster we claim we want to defeat. Only then can conservative principles be demonized for all time. Only then will history look back on us as a stain on the human record.

This is the globalist’s long game.

While Leftists are being encouraged to mutate into wild frothing packs of rabid dogs, conservatives will be encouraged either through temptation or manipulation to respond in kind. The Left’s propaganda train asserts that we are “fascists.” Obviously, we are the furthest thing from this. But, with enough violence and aggressive censorship on their part, we might end up saying “Okay, you want to see fascism, we’ll show you fascism!”

The social justice cult has no idea what they are being led into. The globalists are going to throw them to the wolves, and WE are the wolves.

It is important to note that the Left is also not the only instigator for conservatives to turn totalitarian. Islamic terrorism is always a perfect rationale for increased government intrusion in the name of safety. The worst part is, the threats from the Left and the threats from Islamic extremism are in most cases quite legitimate, and they seem to be working hand-in-hand more each day.

The progressive interference with steps towards more rational immigration policies and their steady defense of Sharia Law leads many conservatives to see them as one in the same enemy.  No foreigner is entitled to citizenship in the U.S., but leftists live in a fantasy world of open borders.  The left's refusal to entertain reasonable and selective immigration will eventually push conservatives towards more drastic measures, which is the ultimate point.

Very few Americans like Communists, and very few Americans like Muslim zealotry; the justification for totalitarian measures to disrupt such threats is relatively easy for many people.

This is why I am going to make my next prediction of a major geopolitical event to close out this article — I believe there will be a large scale terrorist attack within the next three months, beyond the mob actions of the Left already in progress.

It will either be similar in scope to 9/11, or, it will be a succession of many smaller attacks occurring over the course of a few days to a couple of weeks. I believe that the current dispute over border controls and immigration denial will come immediately into play. Trump will blame Leftists for obstructing his efforts for secure immigration. Leftists and the media will blame Trump for “radicalizing” Muslims with his immigration policies, or perhaps even accuse him of staging the attacks himself. Trump will begin taking extraordinary measures beyond the Constitution to ensure immigration denial and the thwarting of the Left, and conservatives will applaud him for it.

Again, conservatives are being led by globalists into the temptations of power. The only way for us to fight back is to maintain our principles and refuse to support ANY government measure that is unConstitutional, even if it is to be used against our enemies. The only way that the heritage of liberty can be defeated is if the proponents and champions of liberty forsake it. We beat the globalists in the long run by standing by our ideals and fighting back within the bounds of the principles we hold dear. Dominance through government is never the answer.

Yes, yes, and yes ... and sobering
written by NH Watcher , February 08, 2017

Of course, the signature line to me in your latest article is:

That point being that the greatest danger to conservatives is NOT militant Leftists, but how we RESPOND to militant Leftists.

Our RESPONSE does make all the difference. It is very, very hard to turn the other cheek, for instance, when you are slapped right in the face. The other cheek meaning, the possibility of being slapped again! There is a hidden power in what on the surface appears as so-called "weakness."

Jesus said it best to Pilate when he was pleading with Jesus to defend himself, answer the charges against him, beg for his life: "Do you not know that I have the power to kill you or to release you?" Jesus finally replied: "You have no power over me unless it were given you from above." (John 19)

I cringe at another 9-11, but I agree with your prediction. And, this time, it will not be just DC and NY, but all across the country. In all the places where conservatives feel most protected now, will it be most catastrophic. In many ways, DC and NY are well fortified: DC has security cameras everywhere, monitoring everything. What about the rural areas in the U.S.? No, the key to the next attack may not be the amount of casualties, but rather the extent of the casualties, the geographic reach all across this country and others. It would be relatively easy now to "lock down" DC and NY, but more difficult to lock down rural America, thereby necessitating the very draconian, dictatorial powers which most conservatives despise.

We MUST resist all this, if it comes to it. If your first thought after an attack is revenge ... step back, and look at yourself. The enemy is within, and it is us. There is a right way to retaliate, and a wrong way, and I appreciate Brandon's emphasis on questioning the moral value of attacking the Left with the very tools which the Left is now trying to use. And a huge part of the problem is the "us vs. them" mentality, creating this Left/Right division.

It is a temptation. We must remember there were two Trees in the Garden of Eden: the Tree of Life, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. It is easy to forget that, and mistakenly say the two Trees were one of Good and one of Evil. It was the KNOWLEDGE of both that created sin, and precipitated our problems. In the heart of God is a Cross, a stepping back from Himself to give Himself to another, so that we may partake of His Life. Lucifer wanted none of this; he wanted, and still wants, to be his own life. But, by seeing within oneself a cross, only then is the temptation shackled which would cause us to do the very thing we lament.

THE GOD THAT FAILED (written in the 1950s) is a sobering read of American communists and Leftists visiting Stalinist Russia and not finding the utopia they envisioned. It made the writers (it is a collection of essays) step back and reflect on their own philosophy.

The only thing that has made America great is that no matter what your politics or philosophy, you may find yourself in jail no matter who you are, based on what law you violated. As that has been corrupted now, and the nuances overlooked or swept under the carpet, so do we see the confusion and anarchy which results, and the slavery. It may not be an external slavery, but it is a slavery of one's mind and one's heart.

Just to clarify my position, I am not saying that conservatives should stand by and do nothing while cultural marxists trample all over our liberties, I'm just saying that using government as a weapon is not the answer. If a leftist attacks you on the street or spits on you, by all means, punch their teeth in.

devolution
written by curtmilr , February 08, 2017

The proper answer for the long term is one Trump has already mentioned, the principles of federalism that our Founders envisioned. Yes, it is a slow motion response to hot button actions, but is that not what Brandon is implying?

Would the imposition of martial law serve the purpose of constitutionalism and liberty? Clearly not!

So, yes, individually punch back. Arrest individual lawbreakers like those ignored at Berkeley, and prosecute them fully. Add public shaming of them, and their families.

These will incrementally build a righteous wave, not a militant emotional reaction.

Rise above the fray
written by Awake , February 08, 2017

Excellent points. The keys to me are not to get sucked in and to maintain your principles. Now is the time to examine what those principles are. When the crisis occurs, it is to late. We do not rise to our expectations, we fall to the level of our training. We must also train our mind, which is our most powerful weapon. A code of life based on Truth is what is needed.

It is still amazing to me how the very one's who support Liberty are behind Trump. Then the bikers, who support him, another amazing development . This constant drumming of trump on the fake news, yes most reading this know about fake news, but no-one finds it odd that he is so vocal about it? To me that is just another ploy by them, so they can eventually shut down all news.. And to demonize any news the is against trump.The false flag in the US is brewing, just as you said for all the reasons. He is sounding off about Iran, Russia, why can't most see all this??? Yes I dis-agree with the left, just on one of the most obvious, where were these people when barrack continued with the destruction of the middle east?

And his cabinet picks, those who were rightly against the obama administration find all kind of excuses for the people he has picked. Both sides are being played. We are being set up to march to chaos, fight among ourselves, give them the excuse for a state of emergency, lord knows they have all the laws in place, no due-process, militarization of police, (thanks in part to Dyn-corp), And the left and right hating each other. In my view, if you are supporting this latest joke and lies of this administration you are being played just like the left.

People Please!!! Its Donald Trump, the essence of what most decent people dislike.

OMG just dicussed this last night

"This is why I am going to make my next prediction of a major geopolitical event to close out this article — I believe there will be a large scale terrorist attack within the next three months, beyond the mob actions of the Left already in progress."

I didn't give it a time frame, but said exactly this last night to my father. Great Call Brandon!

Your article focusses on the political nudges of the Globalists. I recognize the need to keep your writings on single subjects, so take this comment as it is, a reminder to your audience. There are other nudges that Global Corporatists utilize to bring folk into line. Without getting into the whole Environmental thing, here is one that has had my attention for some time now.

Water; About 5 or 6 years ago Nestle's CEO suggested that "water should be resourced and sold via Corporate vehicle." He further suggested that "only Corporations had the wherewithal to properly conserve those resources to benefit 'future generations." This from a company that has bought up water rights in drought stricken countries and was/is pulling water from the aquifers in California. Can you imagine if they were to distribute differing quality water (or none at all) to different groups during a war time scenario? How about Banks or Insurance Companies? We have become way too dependent on Global Corporations!

Attack warning
written by nh , February 08, 2017

There have been rumors floating around in the aviation world, that the shoulder fired missiles Hillary lost in Benghazi have made their way into Mexico, and will cross the border into the US. My guess is they will wind up in the hands of refugees, that have recently been allowed to come in via the judge blocking the EO travel ban.

This would fit perfectly with what you have predicted.

the long war
written by ciga freddie , February 08, 2017

We have national issues that can only be repaired over multiple generations. The long term solutions begin in the family unit, and in local control by parents over their kids' education. It is shocking to me how ignorant some of these college kids and their professors really are. I don't think most of them even know what communism or fascism really is. In fact, many of them can't even detail the real cause of our social degradation. But that degradation is well along, and I don't see it getting better anytime soon. I'm not so sure I agree with the mega-terrorism event as Brandon has detailed, but I do see the civil disobedience going to the next level all over the country. Meanwhile, let's all thank Brandon for his vigilance, while our job is to calmly educate our friends and family, while at the same time preparing for the worst.

" to what end is this being done? Why is Soros so interested in fomenting leftist rage? Is it designed to overthrow Trump? To initiate mob action and frighten conservatives into silence? Or do the globalists have a greater and more important goal in mind?"

Look at Trump's staff and cabinet, Trump is being granted ample justification to establish public-private mergers foundation of Plutocracy and cement Absolute Authority and ultimately roll out guilty until proven innocent and civil privileges.
Trump can only be defined as a Trojan Horse.

"That is to say, I believe the globalists are using the Left as a cattle prod to enrage conservatives and lure us into abandoning our principles in the name of defeating Marxists."

More to the point, they're justifying Trump's inevitable formation that Liberty supporters supporting it ultimately leads to Liberty's downfall.

It's really simple. Trump is going to implement a Plutocracy and Absolute Authority. Do you support it, or do you not support it?
There is no middle ground here; Trump was placed into the Presidency to be used against Liberty supporters by either supporting him or falls under 'dissent thereof'...

Trump as a strong arm lock down candidate seems like a good theory. If there is a large scale attack the moderate left moves right begging Trump to make them safe again and Trump can then take control of those further left using Draconian measures....he may even have a large mandate from both sides in this......later these same Draconian measures will be used against any and all critics of the new regime and former supporters on the right then become the "dissidents"

I think your timeline of 3 months until a terrorist attack is very possible.

Last year in September there were a spate of incidents in America - a bombing in New York, a bomb in New Jersey, stabbings in Minnesota and Boston, shootings in Illinois, North Carolina and Houston.

Europe too had similar incidents - an explosion in Budapest, a bombing in Dresden, shootings in Sweden and Paris.

Then the narrative changed to the US election and incidents like this dropped out of the news.

This is a common theme - attacks attributed to ISIS especially are given wall to wall coverage (the Orlando shooting), then it moves onto something else soon afterwards. I've thought for a long time that to truly gain the attention of a majority of people it will require an attack on a massive scale - on a par perhaps with 9/11. Many I think have become desensitized to it.

Something to keep an eye on is the movements of world leaders in relation to an attack. For example, the 2005 G8 summit was taking place in Scotland at the same time London was bombed.

There's a G7 summit happening in Italy on May 26th and the G20 meet in Germany on the 7th July.

The next few months will be interesting, particularly in Europe with the upcoming French presidential election. Just last week there was an incident at the Louvre museum in Paris. One of Marine Le Pen's central themes to her campaign is to target Islamic extremism. A sizable attack in the lead up to the election would put her in the pounds seats for the Presidency.

Citizens arrest
written by Defiant outlaw , February 08, 2017

Look up citizens arrest in your state and use it against all these terrorist and govt traitors

All of the definitional conditions of terrorism are satisfied by the violent left. First, there is violence. Second, the agents of this violence are non-state actors. Third, the violence is directed against civilians, i.e. noncombatants. Finally, far from being purposeless, the violence is designed to alter government policy.

These are the characteristics that distinguish terrorism from every other class of violent action.

Mr. Thompson
written by Concerned citizen , February 09, 2017

(Globalist) follow this model: In modern psychology, Machiavellianism is one of the dark triad personalities, characterized by a duplicitous interpersonal style, a cynical disregard for morality and a focus on self-interest and personal gain.
Their very nature is predatory so how do you defeat this enemy.
With patience our government has been hijacked. To get it back will take forty years. Why you ask that is when the current generations die out.
First step: We must take over the school system to educate the young and return it back to a thinking population. Hence defund the department of education.
Use the 89 billion dollars to fund the fifty states along with our territories education systems.
Second Step: rename the DOD to the department of war. Then defund all the bases worldwide and pull our troops back to our country.
The department of war gets an annual budget of 1% of the annual taxes.
Draw down the standing military put most of the war stock back into the National Guard units.
Third step: Revoke the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Make the United States money gold or silver period.
Using the interstate commerce clause of Article I of the Constitution. Limit any national/ transnational banks interest rate to 1%. State banks are regulated with in the states but all states will use gold or silver as the only currency. Credit cards can be used also but the same deal on demand transaction for gold or silver.
Fourth step: Immigration can be easily solved if you are in the United States you have one year grace period to register for citizen ship. After that you are deported no exceptions. After the one year normal immigration standards will be in place.
Any business or agents that hire non-citizens will be subject to mandatory jail sentences along with complete forfeiture of all monies.
Fifth step: Flat tax 2 % for individual. Local corporations 4%. Transnational Corporation/ subsidiaries 25%
The solutions are in front of us it just takes courage to take the first step.

Trump supporters are the new Pharisees
written by Rhett , February 09, 2017

The Trump supporters I personally know did not vote for him with a liberty agenda. They support big government as long as that government benefits them and not rival groups. They support a dictatorial President as long as he is "their guy." They have no moral consistency and are simply the mirror image of leftist identity politics. Such people will rally behind Trump as he turns the United States into an open autocracy instead of a disguised oligarchy, and will attack the liberty movement as traitors to their heroic leader.

Trump's followers are no more seeking a true liberty President than the Pharisees were looking for the universalist Messiah that Jesus Christ represented. Both wanted a militant king that would advance their own group while destroying their rivals. And like their predecessors, they will get exactly what they want, and ultimately find themselves trapped in a hell of their own making.

@Rhett

I disagree. Trump ran his campaign primarily on a limited government position; "Draining the swamp" and instituting term limits on Congress, anti-globalism, etc. This was what excited conservatives, NOT bigger government and a simple changing of the elitist guard. Whether or not Trump follows through on those positions is another matter.

Leftists openly and widely support globalization, socialism, and big government. The left cannot be salvaged, but conservatives still have a chance.

Trump does not want a theocracy
written by NH Watcher , February 09, 2017

While many evangelicals supported and still support Trump, and some of them may indeed want to live under some sort of Christian theocracy (with or without Christ), Trump clearly does not. His cabinet picks, and even his executive orders now, have been pragmatic at best. At least he does not have an "I went to Harvard, and you should never have been born" attitude like Obama does. Trump was schooled by Norman Vincent Peale, who trumpeted self-esteem and pop psychology far more than strict conservative, fundamentalist edicts.

Nonetheless, and I still respect those on this forum who may disagree with me, I cannot view the Globalist agenda outside of a supernatural lens. Not to say that I only support magic or voodoo to defeat them. Far from it. We have to defeat them within our own hearts first: that "lust for power" (and control) which tempts all people the same.

I've often found Trump's comment about living among the elite in NYC and those wealthy ... "they are not happy people," quite telling. Wealth certainly did not change either Clintons' heart (Bill or Hillary); they just became more unhappy and rigid. Wealth almost changed my heart, though, and I did not like what I found.

My salesman father lived by the motto: "If you cannot dazzle them with brilliance, you baffle them with bullshit." That is really our chief lesson here: to call out BS wherever we see it, either from the Left or the Right. Whenever government gives us a line similar to Pelosi's "we have to pass the bill first to know what is in it," be it espousing a liberal or conservative stance, we must resist, and resist strongly ... hopefully, first and foremost, with brilliant counter-arguments and ideas.

I enjoy the honest give-and-take here, and the fact that Brandon does keep it from dissolving into a "the only solution is to throw the leftists into FEMA camps" forum. I do believe, though, that FEMA camps are coming (documented clearly on other Web sites as already prepared and in place). So the question becomes: how do you resist going to one personally? It may cost you your life, but let's all hope not. And even if the camps don't come, at least you'll better know what you are truly made of, what your ultimate beliefs are, and be better prepared for anything.

Causes not Symptoms
written by South Florida Oath Keeper , February 09, 2017

I wholeheartedly agree with Brandon on what we must do to stop the oligarchs. Elitist institutions must be neutralized, along with those who own and operate them.

It has been my fond hope that, once enough people became aware of what the patriarchs of families such as Rothschild, Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie, Gates, Zuckerberg, Soros, Windsor (aka Saxe-Coburg & Gotha), and several others, were seeking to do through their 'foundations' and other NGOs, there will be a loud call to have these institutions dismantled and their owners and operators put on trial for crimes of treason, sedition, conspiracy to the same, conspiracy to mass murder, etc., etc., ad nauseum.

If these people and their institutions and organizations are not dealt with via the rule of law, then I really see the civil war these maniacs are fomenting as the most likely outcome. What happens once that conflict truly begins is up in the air, but you can bet these psychopaths and sociopaths pulling the strings currently have their plans and agenda.

If we cannot force a solution via criminal prosecution, we had best be getting prepared with serious planning for a far more dangerous (for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) landscape.

E.g. would it be possible that there is a different Stance towards israel or Iran, just as an example.

Your articles are what I feel, but you have a much better way of expressing thoughts than I.
So as I send this article to a couple friends, I was going to tell them that you seem to have always been right in the past.

"The only way for us to fight back is to maintain our principles and refuse to support ANY government measure that is unconstitutional, even if it is to be used against our enemies."

I'm a novice but studied free-market conservative, a firm believer in the constitution, and at least a prepper wannabe, and i find myself sliding into exactly that: "and the conservatives will applaud him for it."

Is there ever a time when its appropriate to temporarily suspend some or all of the constitution, say, to win a war?

Defeating the One Neoliberal Party
written by Truthfinder , February 09, 2017

"Divide and rule is one of the oldest means of mass control—standard practice since at least the Roman Empire. Within societies it works this way: If each social group can be convinced that some other group is the source of its discontent, then the population’s energy will be spent in inter-group struggles. In the prosperous postwar years, consensus politics served to manage the population. Under Neoliberalism, programmed factionalism has become the front-line defense."
—Richard Moore

Corporate impunity is the global threat today. Every nation must keep in place their social contract for a robust public sector, not exploited by privatization.

In the US, there are the 43% of Independents who do not identify at all with the false paradigm of left vs. right anymore, who understand that it's not Trump but the 40 years of neoliberalism that must be brought to its knees.

Neoliberalism is the killer plague of the 21st century. Neoliberalism is economic fascism. It is a criminal doctrine. Globalized neoliberalism privatizes public goods for private profit. Neoliberalism led by Washington with the shameful complicity of Europe has in the last fifteen years killed between 12 and 15 million people by wars, famine, deprived health services… forced refugees. Today a small world elite of corporate and Wall Street CEOs and selected politicians call the shots. ~ Peter Koenig

"As hard as it is to accept, Richard Nixon was the last liberal president in the New Deal tradition. Since that time hardly a major piece of progressive legislation has emerged from Washington.

Jimmy Carter gave us the first tentative pushbacks with privatization and deregulation, harbingers of the prolonged death throes of liberalism. The floodgates were opened with Ronald Reagan. The neoliberal torrent accelerated with Bill Clinton. His NAFTA and “ending welfare as we know it” were rollbacks best accomplished by a Democrat, because resistance would have been greater from a Republican. The trajectory continued with Bush and then Obama seamlessly carrying the neoliberal project forward.

What we are seeing is Trump, not reversing Obama, but intensifying the neoliberal project. We should expect more aggressive privatizations, deeper tax cuts for corporations and investors, further militarized police, and greater deregulation for the financial sector. Multilateral “free trade” agreements will be scrapped, but they will be replaced by bilateral agreements. Notwithstanding campaign rhetoric about better deals with NATO and Russia, US imperial hegemony will remain the touchstone of foreign affairs.

There is little to take comfort from and every reason to resist.

The neocon/Democratic alliance with its adventurist US foreign policy and corporatist agenda is no antidote to Trump’s toxicity. A movement independent of the two parties of capital could emerge if the angry anti-Trump resistance were to progress to sustained organizational forms. If that doesn’t happen and the anti-Trump movement simply results in returning Democrats to office, the neoliberal trajectory to an ever more naked capitalism will lurch on."

The same thing Brandon is saying

I know this is long, and might be new-agey to some, but it makes the same point that Brandon does.

ARTICLE 5 IN THE ELECTION SERIES
January 18, 2017 By José Stevens

Part I

Now we come to the most important information of all about how we should view Donald Trump, his henchmen, and anyone we might see as behaving in a way we do not agree with. First let us talk about the giant dilemma we face. We know now that this universe is based on a simple activity, observation. Physics has discovered the observer effect, the fact that you cannot observe an experiment without affecting the outcome. This has far reaching implications for how we live our lives. Our observation of something helps to bring it into being, in other words helps to manifest it or create it. However it is not just pure neutral observation that makes the difference. The truth is, it is our observation plus our attitude, expectation, and intention that has the greatest impact. So if scientists have certain expectations or wishes for the outcome of an experiment, it will tend to skew the outcome in that direction. If one group of scientists wants one outcome then it will tend to go that way and if another group of scientists want a different outcome, low and behold the experiment will go that way. This is why double blind experiments were brought into being, to eliminate the problem of influencing the results. Translated to our everyday lives, what all this means is that we will experience that which we tend to believe will happen. If we think someone is a real ass then we will tend to experience them more and more as an ass because we are actively promoting that through our expectations and our emotional reactivity. So in a curious way we are responsible for how we experience people and for the outcomes we experience.

Now this is a giant pisser for human beings because it is counter intuitive. It seems so unfair. A person can act like a complete bully and we have to take responsibility for this? What the %#&*+!%^%!!!!!! Well it is not quite like that. Each person is personally responsible for the way they behave and the way they are. We are each responsible also for what we reinforce so when we pile on someone and expect them to be worse they begin to lean in that direction and then we get to feel right and vindicated. So the hard part is that if we don’t want things to get worse we have to watch our anger, our prejudices, our desire to judge and complain and tendencies to attack. Keep in mind here that to judge and be discerning are two different things. To judge is usually to condemn and to discern is be discriminating in our judgments.

To understand this it is a good idea to look at the behavior of someone who is spiritually advanced like for example the Dalai Lama. Now if there ever were someone who was justified in hating the Chinese for what they did to him and his people it would be the Dalai Lama. However, as someone who is an old soul and spiritually advanced he knows that attacking the Chinese and railing against them is not going to help at all. Because of the observer effect this would only reinforce their bad behavior with regard to Tibet. So if you will notice, the Dalai Lama is very diplomatic when discussing the Chinese. He does not call them names and attack them but he does make clear that Tibet needs to be free and that his people need to be treated justly.

People are amazed at his kindness and compassion but if they knew what he knows they would be inclined to take this path themselves, realizing that they are only fueling the suffering by resisting and complaining.

So what can we learn from the Dalai Lama about how to Treat Donald Trump and his clan? For one we can acknowledge him as a human being with a divine essence like each one of us. Secondly we can recognize that he is a younger soul behaving as a younger soul often does. We would be foolish to expect a ten year old to always behave like a seventy year old and be horrified when they don’t. In other words we need to open our eyes and understand what and who we are dealing with and get rid of our unrealistic expectations. Donald Trump is not evil through and through. No one is. He has his moments where his innocence shows through. Sometimes between tantrums and tirades he says something very rational and sometimes he behaves like a proverbial deer in the headlights.

We need to not resist the man just like a martial arts master is never there for the blow of their attacker. We allow that person to learn from their own mistakes and the consequences of their own behavior. This is the most effective way of teaching. Donald Trump and his buddies will learn the hard way just as we have all learned the hard way that certain ways of being do not produce happiness and a feeling of safety. His select crew will end up fighting among themselves, becoming deeply paranoid, building fortresses for themselves against the people at large. The methods they used to rise to power will also be the same pathways that lead to a loss of power because these paths are unsustainable.

The idea of freedom is so engrained in Americans that even though we have given it away as if it had no value we still think of ourselves as free, and in the long run this makes us unlikely candidates for a dictatorship. There may be attempts to move in that direction but there will be massive protests before too long. It will not be easy to crush this spirit that reflects our identities as Americans.

As I mentioned very briefly in the last article, perhaps the greater question is, “Will this nation state be able to hold itself together for much longer. According to many studies most nation states do not last more than 250 years. What is interesting is that a complete Pluto orbit around the sun takes 248 years and astrologers have been able to track this orbit to nation states collapsing within 250 years of their birth. Only a couple have managed to complete two Pluto orbits, one being the Roman Empire lasting close to 500 years, several of the Chinese dynasties, and the Egyptian dynasties. It has been 240 years since the United States was born in 1776 so we are just shy of 248 years of the Pluto orbit. That could be filled by two Trump terms if he has two. Will the United States survive? We shall see. Already there is serious talk of various states seceding including both Texas and California that has the 6th largest economy in the world. However California would have to secede illegally since it is bound by different laws than Texas, which has the legal right to secede any time they want to. This was a condition of their becoming a state in the first place.



The United States at this time is seriously polarized and consists of populations of people that have entirely different value sets and who want entirely different social structures. Is there a way of bridging this divide and finding common ground? It is difficult to imagine. On the other hand if the country were to break up into a number of smaller countries we would still be living right next door to neighbors who most likely would hate our values. That is the situation in Europe and it doesn’t look any easier than being one big nation.

Simply put there is no easy solution. We have to be prepared for change, something that is inevitable. The changes coming may be foisted on us by people who don’t share our values or they may be influenced by our own deepest desires and wishes. That would be better but not necessarily easy. You may think you have no say in the matter but that would not be true. The paradox is that each person is a tiny drop in the bucket of our nation but each person has enormous influence and power to steer the nation toward a variety of future scenarios. Even if you sit back and think you are doing nothing at all, you are still casting your vote one way or the other. The more of a vision we share the more power that vision has to come about.

The same thing Brandon is saying
written by For Those who have eyes to see , February 09, 2017

Part II
What you can do? First of all, what can you do about Trump? Well there are several things. Instead of hating him it would be better to bless him, something that does not mean you agree with him or support his agenda in any way. It can only help. The other thing you can do is visualize him inside an octahedron, a stabilizing force. Better to have Donald Trump more stable than less so. Regarding his crew the same would apply. Bless them all. The alternative, hating and attacking, is not good for them or for you. This is what Jesus meant by saying “Love your enemies” and what the Dalai Lama means when he says his religion is “Loving Kindness.” Both of them have learned by hard experience over many lifetimes what the consequences of attacking and criticizing are. These responses only produce more and worse of what you don’t want. That is the way everyone learns, the hard way. Finally it dawns on people that after centuries of making things worse, they can have a different approach and things begin to improve instead. Every one of us who is learning this lesson also learns it by noticing what happens when other people are kind to us and forgive us for being complete idiots at times. We begin to notice how we ourselves respond as opposed to our own response to hate and vengeance. The difference is no contest.

So what is the place of anger in this scenario? Is anger a no no? This depends upon how you use it. Anger can be a good motivator. It can make you angry to see an adult abusing or beating a small child or even an animal for that matter. You may be motivated to intervene or take action so that this does not happen again. You may be motivated to help create educational or public awareness programs to deal with the source of the problem. Anger is a motivator and has often helped people to act constructively. However if anger fuels vengeance or attacking those you are angry with, then it is not at all helpful.

In other words, anger directed toward problem solving can be good; anger directed toward a person is usually not. With that said I often find myself exasperated with younger souls, their values, and their attitudes. However I have learned to immediately recognize that they are behaving just the way I behaved when I was a younger soul. Over the lifetimes I have seen that I have done just about everything one can do wrong from being a dangerous murderer to being a slave owner, a prostitute, a betrayer of friends, a thief, and a liar. I have taken advantage of others, broken their spirits, manipulated people, created scandal, and spread false rumors that destroyed people’s lives. I have waged war, ordered forests cut down for military purposes, and sent hundreds to their deaths in battle. All I have to do is to reflect on this for one second and I am humbled. I get it. I am looking at myself as I once was and instead of going into knee jerk rejection, I find it more interesting and challenging to choose compassion as I look at my reflection in the grand mirror that is life. This is in no way easy. It is a discipline and a practice that brings many hard earned rewards. However I am no saint at this time, just someone learning a better way through advisement from my Spirit helpers.

Perhaps you too are on this path and need encouragement and reminders, often. I know I do. In the end it is best to respect and honor our enemies, even if we have to fight them, and fight them we will if they try to take our freedoms away or attempt to destroy this planet. There is a ring-pass-not at some point.

2017, like a worthy opponent, will provide ample opportunities for these lessons. There is no faster process of spiritual growth than adversity and challenges. Perhaps we can sneak in some hearty guffaws, belly laughs, and chuckles in between appalling events. Happy trails.

@ Brandon

in your answer to Rhett:

"I disagree. Trump ran his campaign primarily on a limited government position; "Draining the swamp" and instituting term limits on Congress, anti-globalism, etc. This was what excited conservatives..."

And referring to your "How Globalists Predict Your Behavior" article and your insight into the internet macro-analytics, that is how the globalists came to define Trump's pre-election campaign plan and propositions. They knew what the voters wanted to hear and so they manufactured a program that they would vote for. Everything is under control, once again!

Your are one of the very few people, and the only one that I know of, to be able to decipher all of their moves while explaining how they operate at a meta level. Stay safe!

Life and Death in Shanghai
written by Steven B , February 09, 2017

Every time I get into these readings it reminds me of the true story written by Nien Cheng, Life and Death in Shanghai. The beginnings of the communist revolution in China under Mao rings like a nightmare in similarities to here in the US - how the left and cultural Marxism begins it's reign of terror. It begins with public shaming, then small acts of violence here and there and ultimately in demonic kill fests, seeking anyone who may look wealthy or bourgeois (race based in this war it seems). It also started in the universities in China, forcing students to learn the mantras and make propaganda banners. It rings similar because it's the same spirit here in the USA.

Islamic terrorism brings a different angle in comparison and, yes, another tool to create fabricated or real retaliation.

If it comes to this we will likely see a full dictatorship to thwart it. I won't be on board with this, but I will be on board with keeping my family safe as long as I have the ability.

Order out of chaos. It's always the same story.

I enjoy your writing and perspective.

@Papa J

Oh yes, I have been wrong; probably around 10% of the time. I am usually right about particular outcomes of events, but TIMING is where things get difficult. Sometimes I'll be off by a few months or more. It is important to note that economics is not a science, not even close. It does involve mathematics, but it also involves human psychology.

Peter Schiff's predictions on the housing bubble collapse were off by about a year, but most people don't really hold that against him because he was right about the overall situation.

It's funny though how some people act towards an analyst that has made predictions. They act as if your entire career is resting on being right, and if you are wrong just once, you're screwed. When I predicted Brexit and Trump, I received HUNDREDS of emails telling me my predictions would turn out wrong and I was done for. I even had some trolls early election night saying "you are finished!" because Hillary was ahead in the electoral college for 5 minutes.

This is why most liberty analysts avoid predictions at all cost. I have a gambler's mind, I suppose, so I don't worry about it. I also don't place bets on anything unless I am at least 99% certain.

My only problem with Jim Rickards so far is that he perpetuates the false East/West paradigm. That said, he is the only other analyst I know of that correctly predicted the Brexit and the U.S. election outcome. Of course, he's done a lot of work with the CIA, so perhaps he has an inside information source.

I don't really care if he sells books and makes lots of money. I don't care if anyone is making money in the liberty movement - business is business, as long as they are putting out good content. I should have been selling books this whole time, lol!

The Horror of 9/11 Will Escalate
written by gardengritty , February 10, 2017

"It will either be similar in scope to 9/11, or, it will be a succession of many smaller attacks occurring over the course of a few days to a couple of weeks."


When 9/11 happened it was inhumane, unexpected by all in America (except those already in the know) and truly our first experience of such terror on American soil.

Shock set in for a little while. Politicians stood together for a few days and said "God bless America." Churches were packed to the rafters for a few weeks. We sang the songs, hung the ribbons, had the usual "coming together as a nation" symbols, and for a little while were Americans in unison. Nothing like a good national crises to bring the folks together to stand up in the face of danger. It's all planned..

It is my true belief that nothing similar to 9/11 will occur.

The next event will be far, far worse.

9/11 really only woke up America for a just few weeks or so, then it was pretty much back to business as usual. Except, of course, for those who had loved ones who died in such a tragic and incomprehensible event.

The powerz that be got more of their oppressive laws passed because we craved security over freedom.We heard that famous confession by Rahm Emanuel "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." - Rahm Emanuel.

No, it will be far, far worse. Will it finally wake up the sleeping masses to, this time, "Bless God, America." And for real this time?

Prefect analysis and astonishing forecast

The forecast about a media sequence implying terror or major unrest suits me :

In France, we are see a similar development (kind of BLM rioting + media focussing attention to push violence against Police, ignoring much more important facts such as multiple nuclear plant accidents in 10 days...) as presidential elections campaign begins and vote is traditionnaly taking place between last April and early May.

"This... this... this can't be happening!"
US National Security Advisor Michael Flynn - who was, ironically, bashed by the US media as being a 'Russian agent' until Trump's inauguration - fired the first volley when he announced that Iran was "being put on notice" for "testing a ballistic missile" in its own backyard, which, he said, "put American lives at risk." But it isn't ballistic missiles in Iran's backyard that concerns him - it's the ballistic missiles the Houthis are lobbing all over the place; missiles that are clearly being supplied to the Houthis by Russia and China via Iran. He also cited Iran for "weapons transfers and support for terrorism," clearly referring to Iran's support for the Houthis in Yemen. The US media - as always, with the kind assistance of anonymous military intelligence officials who are 'unauthorized to speak with the media' - filled in the rest of the story by referring to the supposed 'Houthi attacks' against US warships back in October, which the US used as justification to intervene directly on behalf of its failing proxy (Saudi Arabia). Those attacks probably didn't happen, so between the lines, the US is saying "our Saudi forces were attacked by Iran, and this gives us the right to retaliate directly against Iran." Except that it doesn't, and they know it. They know very well the rules of the game because they created them. And anyway, they can't do anything about it because they know that any potential conflict with Iran implicitly involves Russia and China in one way or another.

The second volley came three days later, when new US War Defense Secretary James Mattis declared that Iran is the world's "biggest state sponsor of terrorism," - like, ever! If, in trying to understand what Mattis meant, you had only the public narratives about Islamic terrorism, al-Qaeda and ISIS to go by, you'd be forgiven for thinking that he had lost his mind (or was just living up to his nick-name). After all, Iran is fighting against ISIS, al-Nusra and all the other jihadi mercenary armies in Syria and Iraq. Ergo, Iran is doing its part to prevent future terror attacks in the West. But if you understand that Mattis was referring to Iran's role in using the Houthis to 'give the Saudis their Vietnam', as the expression goes, then you understand the magnitude of Mattis' declaration. And then you also understand why he followed it up with a whimper:
"It does no good to ignore it [Iran's 'addiction to terrorism']. It does no good to dismiss it and at the same time I don't see any need to increase the number of forces we have in the Middle East at this time. We always have the capability to do so but right now I don't think it's necessary.".......

Conservatives don't have principles
written by mattcash , February 10, 2017

I just want to echo Rhett's comment above and add to it. It is important to recognize the difference between a conservative and a libertarian.

The difference between a conservative and a libertarian is that a conservative believes an act is right because it is a tradition. A libertarian believes something is right because of principles. Libertarian principles are based on individual liberty: "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

On some issues libertarians and conservatives are in agreement. It just so happens that traditions are usually right, because there is a reason that something became a tradition in the first place. Traditions are based on successful social models through history. However, it is important to remember that just because something is a tradition, doesn't necessarily make it right. Slavery was a tradition at one time. So was communism for those living in Russia. It was a tradition but it was morally wrong. A conservative wouldn't recognize that but a libertarian would. A conservative will embrace any thug who comes along and promises to "make America great again", while the libertarian knows that government can't make anything great, only individual actions can. This seems like a small point but it is a huge difference in practice. Conservatives embrace collectivism. Libertarians embrace individualism. You have to choose one or the other--you can't be both.

When the SHTF, both conservatives and socialists (liberals) are going to be our enemies. To use an example from a different era, neither Hitler nor Stalin were "right" since they were both collectivists. Unfortunately, in the upcoming struggle, libertarians are in the same position as the Jews were in that time period. The small minority of people who believe in liberty (less than 5%) are going to have to go underground and live it out while the collectivists do battle.

The Snowden Principle at Work
written by Useless Eater , February 10, 2017

We globalists need to get from point A to point B. We could simply have the government vote it into being, since they represent our interests and not the Useless Eaters, but then we would have bitching, pissing and moaning from the unwashed masses.

Point B: We need to spy on every body for control over them.

Enter Snowden...

"Hello. I am Snowden and I am a whistleblower. I have come to tell the little people that they are in trouble. I am going to tell you something that you should already know, which is that the government has been unconstitutionally spying on you and they want to increase that spying exponentially."

Chaos ensues which would've never occurred f it weren't for Snowden's presence. Let's introduce a bunch of laws to prevent this illegal spying. All bills fail and the exponential spying is now legal and acceptable. Welcome to point B - and you never even knew you were at point A once upon a time.

Can anybody see this system at work with Trump? What are they doing in the courts right now about immigration? How about all of these great things Trump is doing? Well, let's take inventory, shall we?...

Repeal and replace Obamaduznotcare. The individual mandate, a.k.a. the penalty I pay for the privilege of not having health insurance coverage, is still in effect. Not only will I be paying almost $700 this year, but does anybody really believe that I won't be on the hook for double that next year? And that is just the immediate price that I, the Useless Eater, must pay.

How about the tax promise? He stated that those like me who make less than $20K/year will pay next to nothing. Hey, sounds good to me. In fact, my piddly little tithe does next to nothing compared to the corporations who rape the Useless Eaters of the world to the tune of billions and trillions per transnational YOY. I, and other Useless Eaters like me, will have more to stimulate the economy, according to so-called capitalist principles anyway. Well, he is getting right on that. Gonna help out the little guy... but let us just cut the corporate rate first - I am sure the rest will trickle down to me... eventually. Right? Right...

Stay tuned for more fantastic Trump Remedies. Probably, this will be the greatest remedies that history has ever seen, inasmuch as I listen intently to how The Dumpster speaks. It is taking a little while (but I knew it would), but my predictions about Trump will be proven correct. Bet on it...

Nonsense. Libertarians are just an extension of the conservative dynamic. The enemies you are referring to are REPUBLICANS, or more specifically, RINOS (Republicans In Name Only). Libertarians ARE conservative, they are just further along the spectrum. If you promote big government and collectivist tyranny, then you are NOT a conservative. Period.

What you are essentially advocating is division from within. Conservatives are not our enemy - we ARE conservatives.

If there is another series of terror attacks in the next three months as I predicted, then it is likely that at least one other EU nation will go "nationalist"; Italy or France. There is also a chance that Greece will leave the EU, for other reasons. Also, yes, I still predict that stocks will reverse course in six months or less. Though, to be clear, the stock market is a meaningless indicator as far as the economy is concerned; equities fall towards the END of a financial crisis, not at the beginning.

Opinion?
written by airmaker , February 11, 2017

Brandon, have you not formed an opinion as to whether Netherlands will leave as well or do you think it's unlikely for some reason? Geert Wilders is against the EU and just said in an exclusive interview with CBN News that he is definitely against the EU.

Also why do you think a terror attack would cause a nation to go nationalist?

Trump has to be a fall guy
written by Confused and Lost , February 11, 2017

Everything is contradictory. He exposes conservative beliefs yet trample on liberty and free speech. He demands for an asinine wall that is just wasteful spending. He won't attack the entrenched big business interests and actually lauds them for doing a good job (i.e. pharmacy ceos). I don't understand how any libertarian or conservative can support this guy. Just look at what he does and not what he says. He is completely beholden to the elite ruling class. This idea that they hate him is hogwash. He is doing exactly what they want him to do.

Walls
written by Confused and Lost , February 11, 2017

@awake because my house isn't the size of 4 states plus the caribbean sea. And there is no way for me to patrol such a massive expanse of land so eventually they will tunnel or find holes in such wall? Is it not lost on anyone here how absurd a wall to seal off an entire nation is? Especially a nation the size of the US. Yeah israel has a wall, but its a tiny section that needs to be heavily guarded. The chinese tried to do it and look how well that worked for them. Its just not feasible.

You know the real purpose of the wall? To give the Donald a huge boondoggle in federal money. You can bet he has his hand in every construction company, cement company, wiring company that goes close to the wall. His grubby hands are probably on everything.

By the way, xenophobia is the first instrument of totalitarian regimes. Can you not see how much Stalin/Hitler/Mussolini in everything Trump does? Meet the new pathological king, a slightly more pathological and narcissistic version of the old king. I reckon he is our Nero and from the chaos they get the "5 good emperors" and the so called golden age of roman civilization. Although this golden age was mostly more centralization of authority and increased authoritarianism. Hey get the picture where they're going with this? History is shockingly repetitive no?

Iran allows Russia to use its airspace....
written by Sammy , February 11, 2017

http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2...iddle-East

Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani says Russian warplanes are using the Islamic Republic’s airspace for anti-terror operations in Syria. He added that Tehran would “have any cooperation with Moscow on Syria” noting that Iran would grant necessary permission to Russian planes to use its airspace.

Iran and Russia are Syria’s main allies and have been assisting the government in Damascus in its fight against foreign-backed terrorist groups, including Daesh.

Russia has been conducting airstrikes against terrorist groups in Syria at the Syrian government’s request since September 30, 2015, while Iran has been providing advisory assistance to the Syrian government.

Scott Bennett, former US army psychological warfare officer believes allowing Russian planes to fly over Iran’s airspace is a “brilliant move”, adding that this is exactly what is needed in the fight against Takfiri terrorists.

“This is an information war, this is a psychological war, so Iran is showing the world that Iran stands with Russia, Russia stands with Iran in the fight against terror and by allowing planes to fly of course it is like a parade, it is like a great demonstration of mutual military alliance and working together,” the analyst told Press TV in an interview on Saturday.

He also noted Iran needs to amplify the message behind this intelligent move in order to show it works with the world in the fight against terrorism.

Bennett further argued this move will make the United States realize that no attack on Iran should ever happen because Russia will be standing with it.

He also emphasized the American people elected Donald Trump to have peace in the Middle East and not to engage in wars against Russia, Syria and Iran.

That is why people did not vote for former US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton because they were fearful, he added.

“So Donald Trump will not attack Russia, he would not attack Iran if he sees such an alliance gathering because he would know it would be an unwinnable situation and it would be going against his very core ideas that he stood on,” he stated.

According to the analyst, Iran and Russia should publicize to the world that they share a common value of peace and stability.

@Awake

Well, in order for Trump's plan to work, for America to dramatically return to manufacturing, the dollar would have to greatly devalue against other national currencies. This kind of plays into the globalist narrative, however, because their goal has always been to eventually "harmonize" all national currencies and bring them under the umbrella of the SDR. From that point, developing a single world currency would be much easier.

Also, as I have written in the past, any attempt by Trump to force the issue of trade imbalances will result in multiple countries (like China) dumping the dollar as world reserve. I believe the elites are sticking to the timeline mentioned in the 1988 Economist article on global currency, and that the death of the dollar will be greatly accelerated before 2018.

THE WALL WILL NEVER BE BUILT!
written by gardengritty , February 11, 2017

Not without a war and more blood shed. We see this appearing today with marches and rebellion. Part of the current plan of California succeeding from "America" is for California to go back to Mexico along with Arizona, Texas, etc.

Few Americans know much about the history of this nation other than the "Founding Fathers, Christopher Columbus....etc." There is more to this than meets the eye. And very few Americans are awake enough to find out. And this battle has been going on for years.


"The Mexican-American War (1846-1848) marked the first U.S. armed conflict chiefly fought on foreign soil. It pitted a politically divided and militarily unprepared Mexico against the expansionist-minded administration of U.S. President James K. Polk, who believed the United States had a “manifest destiny” to spread across the continent to the Pacific Ocean. A border skirmish along the Rio Grande started off the fighting and was followed by a series of U.S. victories. When the dust cleared, Mexico had lost about one-third of its territory, including nearly all of present-day California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico."

Trump can spout his words as he tells the American people not only what they want to hear but also what they know anyway. But Trump is the first President and former campaigner who tells what the people already know. He gave the people what they wanted to hear.

I finally get to disagree with you on something(well almost). You said we get to be the wolves. I agree with this, but there several other variables I think. To me once the left is all fired up and frothing they will sooner or later figure out they have been duped, to be nothing more than cannon fodder or when the militant guys don't end up going to jail with the rest of them, or their head hasn't been busted, questions will arise. Snowflakes don't seem to possess the mentality for JAIL in my humble opinion. I guess my thinking is when, and if these people do see the light, then where will they go. I think TPTB already have a unique plan for this bunch of very useful idiots. All that anger isn't going to go away overnight. I mean hey, let a bunch of sjw run into a bigger group of somali's, their attitude on immigration will change in a hurry. I mean they had a big ole march with funny hats and the TGs were ticked because they didn't have one and were discriminated against. How about being in a jailcell with a dozen somalis. Have you thought about those sjw's sharing a fema camp with us. They think they have rights and freedom's too, and theyve shown they are easy followers. I think Black Christians are figuring out things too. I imagine there was a flood of them voting against "h". I was in awe of that great big black guy, telling the protesters (rioters) that they were doing it all wrong and was giving them facts about their distorted beliefs. It was amazing!
I read this morning from a blogger that he reads Arabic or whatever and he said that the mosques here are telling their people that Jihad will be coming soon. Won't that be a wakeup call. Little "o" put everything in place for a Trump takeover, now i read "o" is organizing trouble with 30,000 followers.
Are you a PESSIMIST?? I am!! I find your thinking parallels a lot of my thoughts. Lots of things cannot be taken at face value these days. If we get a terrorist attack, that will separate a bunch of snowflakes from the crowd, they will probably be listed and identified for later roundups. 95% of us have to go TPTB are only going to want only the most docile of sheep. What do you think the % will be between sheep and enforcers of the boundaries. Swords sharp Powder dry!
