Red Alert: A Revolution in Progress in the USA – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on October 20, 2020

When these people call for a revolution, they do not mean some kind of partial change or reform. What they want is a complete remaking and transformation of the American system.

By Vasko Kohlmayer

In the last four months America has experienced violence and upheaval not seen since the Civil War. Widespread rioting and burning cities have been the order of the day. We have witnessed anarchy and destruction on an unprecedented scale. Our nation has been vilified and accused of being irredeemably racist. Ritual kneelings took place on all levels: from people in the streets to politicians in the highest echelons of our government. We have seen shameless pandering and the political class bitterly divided. We watched law enforcement standing by while the rioters looted and burned with impunity.

These events have caught most of us by surprise. Especially startling has been the speed with which these developments have unfolded. A mere few months ago, we were an apparently well off and stable country. Today our nation seems to be falling apart at the seams and slouching toward a civil war. In February of this year, Gallup released a poll which showed that Americans’ confidence in the U.S. economy was at a 20-year high. At that time nearly ninety percent of Americans were happy with the course of their personal lives. Barely eight months later, we are a country on the verge of anarchy and lawlessness. How could it happen? Why did it happen? Most people just cannot make sense of this.

There is, however, a definite reason and explanation for the upheaval and disturbance in America today: what we are witnessing is a revolution in progress.

This may come as a surprise, but it is true nevertheless. The forces that are attempting to carry out this revolution are, in fact, quite explicit about it. Those marching in the streets routinely chant revolutionary slogans and carry placards featuring the word “REVOLUTION.” To make their purpose unmistakably clear, they regularly deface buildings with graffiti of sickle and hammer and other revolutionary symbols.

Below is a first-hand account of an event which took place as part of the so-called anti-racism “protests” in June of this year in New York City:

“With masses cheering the several calls for communist revolution, we marched down one of Brooklyn’s busiest streets, Flatbush Avenue. Bus drivers blared their horns and raised their fists as we chanted the names of Black youth murdered by the racist police, while marching past graffitied and smashed-up NYPD police cars.”

This unfolding revolution has been launched by the Hard Left and its goal is to topple our society and replace it with an altogether different system of governance.

The underlying ideology that informs the thinking and actions of the revolutionaries is Marxism and its derivatives and modalities such critical race theory, Cultural Marxism, liberation theology and the like. The revolutionaries call themselves by different names such as Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, liberals, Democrats and such. (Not all who describe themselves as Democrats and liberals are Marxists, but some are.)

At this time the revolution is being spearheaded by the organization known as Black Lives Matter (BLM). BLM is frank about its agenda and ultimate goal. The headline video on its website is called “Now, We Transform.” The teaser underneath reads:

“Our fight for liberty, justice, and freedom continues. Together, we can — and will — transform. This is the revolution.”

When these people call for a revolution, they do not mean some kind of partial change or reform. What they want is a complete remaking and transformation of the American system.

The Revolution Against White America

Posted by M. C. on September 7, 2020

The vast majority of Americans are too insouciant to know or care what is happening to them.  Consequently, there is nothing in the way of the anti-white revolution.

Revolution Is Being Institutionalized in the Federal Government – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on September 5, 2020

Most Americans are too removed from reality to be aware of the peril that they are in. Critical Race Theory, an anti-white doctrine designed to produce revolution in the United States in order to overthrow “white rule,” has long held sway in the universities and public schools.

Stay with the remaining 30 minutes of Carlson’s show.  You will learn that a Democrat experienced at stealing elections says that is what voting by mail enables.

SUPPORT  YOUR  WEBSITE

Dear Readers:  It is September and my quarterly request for your support. The media tells you nothing of what really is going on.  The presstitutes constitute a propaganda ministry.  I do my best to show you what is really happening. For example, the Covid thing is overstated and we are prevented from effective treatment by HCQ and zinc because Big Pharma wants to make billions of dollars on a vaccine.  Our economy is wrecked because high-productivity, high value-added jobs were offshored to Asia. We are undergoing a revolution from above by deconstructing white Americans’ sense of themselves and their culture.  And so forth.  Where else can you get the information I provide?

It is becoming harder and harder to tell the truth.  Censorship is tightening, and the cancelling of truth-tellers by smears and accusations is rising.  Smears and accusations scare off easily intimidated readers.

This website has a large domestic and international readership, reaching as many as 109 countries.  In the first eight months of this year, the site has had almost 4 million visits.  If support matched readership, I could do much more research and field investigative reporters, a disappearing breed.

Keep in mind that truth is not free and is becoming ever more expensive.

Now for today’s column:

 

Revolution Is Being Institutionalized in the Federal Government

Paul Craig Roberts

Most Americans are too removed from reality to be aware of the peril that they are in.  Critical Race Theory, an anti-white doctrine designed to produce revolution in the United States in order to overthrow “white rule,” has long held sway in the universities and public schools. On an Executive Order from former President Obama, critical race theory now has infiltrated the Federal government cabinet agencies including the Treasury and FBI within the Department of Justice. US government employees, if white, are required to attend Soviet-style self-denunciation “sensitivity training sessions” and acknowledge their inherent racism as a white person.  One wonders that no one has told President Trump about this. Our taxpayer dollars are paying for indoctrination sessions that make white people unable to defend their race and their rights to equality under the law.

In no previous country in history that was overthrown had the rot reached the inner sanctums of the government itself.

Tucker Carlson, the only TV journalist remaining in the US, and his guest, a researcher into the undermining of the US government under Trump’s nose by critical race theory, show in the first nine minutes of Tucker’s show (soon to be taken down by the censors at YouTube)—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK5mtY6twTQ —the extent to which the US government bureaucracy is being brainwashed against White Americans.

What you need to understand, although it will be difficult for you, is that in the Trump administration itself, revolution against white people is being institutionalized within the US Government. 

Stay with the remaining 30 minutes of Carlson’s show.  You will learn that a Democrat experienced at stealing elections says that is what voting by mail enables.  The Democrats already know that they have lost the election.  They intend to steal it by throwing out mail-in ballots from Trump areas.  Even postal employees are participants in the theft. No Trump vote that is cast by mail will be counted.

Governments Have Crippled the World’s Economies. Revolution May Soon Follow. | Mises Wire

Posted by M. C. on June 11, 2020

They argue that capitalism makes the rich even richer and the poor even poorer and that capitalism is inherently unstable and causes recurring economic and financial crises. However, this is an entirely false interpretation. First and foremost, neither in the US, Europe, Asia, nor Latin America do we find capitalism in the pure sense of the word.

Economic systems around the world represent the interventionist system. Governments have greatly restricted the workings of the free market forces through taxes, directives, laws, and regulations. Wherever you look, what little is left of the capitalist order is under siege and gets eliminated further. A rather obvious point is the monetary system: money production has been monopolized by government-sponsored central banks, which hand out licences to privately held banks to participate in money creation that is not backed by any real savings.

Another result of a rise in the money stock is a redistribution of income and wealth among people. Not all people will get a share of the newly created money at the same time, as there will be early receivers and late receivers. The former can buy goods and services at unchanged prices. The latter, however, lose out: they can only purchase vendible items at already elevated prices.

https://mises.org/wire/governments-have-crippled-worlds-economies-revolution-may-soon-follow?utm_source=Mises+Institute+Subscriptions&utm_campaign=b226582188-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_9_21_2018_9_59_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_8b52b2e1c0-b226582188-228343965

The world seems to be on fire. A couple of months ago, the economic upswing was still firmly established, production expanded, and unemployment was declining. It all changed with the advent of the coronavirus or, to be precise: things turned really sour with the politically dictated lockdowns. As a reaction to the spread of the virus, governments in many countries ordered shops and firms to shut down and people to stay home. The inevitable result was a close to complete breakdown of the economic system. Hundreds of millions of people were thrown into outright despair; in India alone 120 million workers lost their jobs in April 2020.

The economic collapse sent the unbacked paper money system into a tailspin. Borrowers were unable to service their debt, and banks unwilling to roll over maturing loans, let alone extend new funds to struggling debtors. The entire credit pyramid was about to come crashing down. To prevent this from happening, governments and their central banks went “all in,” providing huge amounts of money to pay for people’s lost incomes and firms’ evaporating profits. Of course, governments do not have the money that they have promised to spend.

Central banks have started running the electronic printing presses, issuing great amounts of newly created money into the banking and financial sector and also injecting new balances into people’s accounts held with banks. In other words: as production contracts heavily, the quantity of money is rising strongly. This is, no doubt, an inflationary policy, for, if anything, inflation must be understood as an increase in the quantity of money. One possible outcome of a policy of increasing the quantity of money is price inflation: the increase in the money prices of goods and services.

Another result of a rise in the money stock is a redistribution of income and wealth among people. Not all people will get a share of the newly created money at the same time, as there will be early receivers and late receivers. The former can buy goods and services at unchanged prices. The latter, however, lose out: they can only purchase vendible items at already elevated prices. As a result, the early receivers of the new money get richer compared to the late receivers. The money injection, therefore, amounts to a redistribution of income and wealth.

The vast amounts of money that central banks are issuing to fend off the symptoms of the crisis will create winners and losers. It will make some richer, and it will make many others poorer. It does not create a win-win situation. Banks, the financial industry, big business, and governments, as well as their entourages and close beneficiaries, can be expected to be on the winning side. In contrast, medium and small business, the average employee, and pensioners can be expected to be on the losing end. If anything, the printing of ever greater amounts of money increases economic inequality.

It is no longer hard work, ingenuity, frugality, and consumer orientation on the part of the individual that determines his economic fate, but closeness to the central bank’s money printing press and meeting the requirements for receiving government favors. In times of economic expansion, opposition and protest against the social injustice that comes with money printing are subdued—most people see their slice of the cake increasing at least to some extent. A recession, however, changes that: it lays the foundation for outright opposition and rebellion.

As Ludwig von Mises (1881–1973) noted perceptively:

Permanent mass unemployment destroys the moral foundations of the social order. The young people who, having finished their training for work, are forced to remain idle, are the ferment out of which the most radical political movements are formed. In their ranks the soldiers of the coming revolutions are recruited.1

Opposition and rebellion against what?

Most people these days blame the loss of jobs and the dire income situation on capitalism—the economic system in which the means of production are in private hands. They argue that capitalism makes the rich even richer and the poor even poorer and that capitalism is inherently unstable and causes recurring economic and financial crises. However, this is an entirely false interpretation. First and foremost, neither in the US, Europe, Asia, nor Latin America do we find capitalism in the pure sense of the word.

Economic systems around the world represent the interventionist system. Governments have greatly restricted the workings of the free market forces through taxes, directives, laws, and regulations. Wherever you look, what little is left of the capitalist order is under siege and gets eliminated further. A rather obvious point is the monetary system: money production has been monopolized by government-sponsored central banks, which hand out licences to privately held banks to participate in money creation that is not backed by any real savings.

Sound economic theory teaches us that such a monetary system causes great trouble: it is inflationary, causes boom and bust cycles, makes the economy run into overindebtedness, and allows the state to become ever greater, transforming itself into the deep state. Indeed, there should be little doubt that without an unbacked paper money system, today’s governments could not have become as big, encroaching, and suppressive as they are. The unbacked paper money system is, so to speak, the elixir for creating a tyrannical government.

Unfortunately, those blaming capitalism are barking up the wrong tree. For all their critique of inflationary money, economic hardship and rising inequality are the direct results of governments’ successful war against capitalism, which has been replaced by a system of interventions. The free market system was replaced by a system of decrees and prohibitions, all of which are incompatible with capitalism in the true sense. Against this backdrop, the question arises: How come people put all the blame on capitalism rather than interventionism-socialism?

Of course, there is this thing called the “anticapitalist mentality.” Many people do not like capitalism, because under capitalism, those who serve consumer demand best are economically rewarded: making a profit is the result of having produced something that others want to buy. Those who are less eager to serve their fellow man must settle for lower incomes. This inevitable truth is the breeding ground for resentment, envy, and malevolence. And these emotions can be instrumentalized quite easily by demagogues.

This is exactly where the socialist ideology comes in. It appeals and caters to people’s resentments. Capitalism is declared the bad guy, the culprit of their dissatisfaction. In that sense, capitalism becomes a kind of “hate screen” against which people are encouraged to direct all their resentments. Most importantly, anticapitalist policies, the program of socialism, are praised and promoted as beneficial for the dissatisfied, to clamp down on the rich and to ensure a more even distribution of income and wealth.

No doubt the current income and wealth distribution has been brought about by interventionism-socialism rather than pure capitalism. One strategy to remedy it is to channel people’s dissatisfaction in the right direction—to make it clear that calling for less interventionism, less socialist policies, and the deconstruction of the state (as we know it today) is the way forward, not pushing the free market system off the cliff and allowing the deep state to become even bigger. No doubt this amounts to a gigantic educational task.

Much depends on making progress on this issue, as it would be a recipe for disaster if capitalism continued to be held responsible for the economic, social, and political problems that are, in fact, caused by a system that can perhaps best be characterized as anticapitalism. By bidding farewell to capitalism people put peace and prosperity in severe danger, jeopardizing the existential future of the great majority of human lives around the globe. That said, safeguarding capitalism from its destructive enemies is of utmost importance.

This is not only a time of economic crisis. In hindsight, it may also appear as a standoff between those forces wanting to push further toward socialism and those trying move back toward capitalism, and perhaps also as a time of social revolution. Hopefully a revolution against the encroaching socialism in the form of ever bigger and even more powerful governments. Hopefully a revolution in which people seek to regain control over their lives, putting an end to left-leaning ideologies, be it political globalism, interventionism, or outright socialism.

Be seeing you

The Hatred from the Left | Armstrong Economics

Posted by M. C. on February 11, 2019

https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/civil-unrest/the-hatred-from-the-left/

by Martin Armstrong

You can feel it in the air. We are heading into the collapse of government and a violent civil war because hatred is rising dramatically. The government is no longer capable of even functioning. The State of the Union was just an example. It did not matter what Trump said. The Democrats will not break party rank and will refuse to comply with anything. The government never acted like this until Hillary lost. Neither side will accept the election in 2020. Western society will crumble by 2032. There is no going back. This is how all empires, nations, and city-states have collapsed throughout history. The rule of law vanishes and what emerges is just hatred. Read the rest of this entry »

The Cause of Every Revolution in Human History? – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on January 8, 2018

President Kennedy agreed:

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

Indeed, the American government is doing what King George did before the American Revolution … trying to crush dissent.
