https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/pics/2103.jpg

France's authorities and elites are tearing up, piece by piece, the country's historical, religious and cultural legacy so that nothing remains. A nation dispossessed of its identity will see its inner strength broken.

The Real Reason Trump Is So Cozy With Saudi Arabia

https://media2.s-nbcnews.com/j/newscms/2017_20/2007116/ss-170520-donald-trump-saudi-arabia-01_5022d8ee11fabd8d2a0e392737e3539f.nbcnews-ux-1024-900.jpg

The petrodollar has also allowed the US to spend astronomical amounts of money on welfare and other benefits for over half of its population. It gives Americans a much higher standard of living than they would have otherwise. In short, the petrodollar is the ultimate enabler of big government.

China's Return to Strongman Rule: The Meaning of Xi Jinping's Power Grab

https://www.bricsbusinesscouncil.co.za/wp-content/uploads/China-China_s-President-Xi-Jinping-1080x675.jpg

A new era has begun in Chinese politics. As the curtain fell on the Chinese Communist Party’s 19th National Congress, party officials revised their organization’s charter to enshrine a new guiding ideological principle: “Xi Jinping Thought.” Few observers know exactly what this doctrine entails—it is an amorphous collection of ideas about maintaining China’s one-party state and transforming the country into a global power—but most immediately grasped the political symbolism of its introduction. The party has elevated the Chinese ruler’s ideological contributions to the same level as those of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, the only other CCP leaders whose ideas have been so canonized.

The Islamic State’s Foreign Fighters Are Coming Home: And Western countries need a plan to defuse the threat they pose.

What Can Be Done to Stop Terrorist Vehicular Attacks

Once again, terrorism has struck the United States — this time close to Ground Zero in Manhattan, where our current era of terrorism was inaugurated. Tuesday’s attack, of course, was nowhere on the scale of 9/11. But by showcasing the wide array of everyday objects, like trucks, that can be weaponized, and the infinite availability of targets, it highlighted just how easy it can be to commit an act of terrorism.

Why is everyone so busy? Time poverty is a problem partly of perception and partly of distribution

Ever since a clock was first used to synchronise labour in the 18th century, time has been understood in relation to money. Once hours are financially quantified, people worry more about wasting, saving or using them profitably. When economies grow and incomes rise, everyone’s time becomes more valuable. And the more valuable something becomes, the scarcer it seems.

The Bolsheviks in Beijing: What the Chinese Communist Party Learned From Lenin

http://damagedgoods.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/BOLSHEVIKS-WEBSITE2013-HEADER.jpg

China's leaders are attentive students of Soviet history, and the Bolsheviks and the Soviet state they built are both a model and a cautionary tale for the Chinese Communist Party. Memories of the Soviet collapse—the trauma of toppled statues, indigent apparatchiks, and secret archives opened to public scrutiny—steel party leaders’ determination to retain power.

This is George Soros, the Man Funding Global Left-Wing Activism

http://shoebat.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/george-soros.jpg

Soros has built a reputation for himself as the power behind movements all over the world which destabilized governments and set the scene to make entire cultures ripe for revolution, tumult, and war. He has tampered with elections, set populations against each other by promoting identity politics, and he is a wanted man in several countries for his crimes.

The United States of Weinstein: Complicity, Greed and Corruption Is the Status Quo

http://cdn3.thr.com/sites/default/files/2014/03/harvey_weinstein_oscars_-_h_-_2014.jpg.jpg

The sordid story of Harvey Weinstein is being presented as an aberration. It is not an aberration; it is merely a high-profile example of how the status quo functions in the USA, a.k.a. The United States of Weinstein, in which complicity, greed and corruption reign supreme in every sector and in every nook and cranny of power. The dirty secret of America's status quo is that power and wealth are both extremely concentrated, which means there are gatekeepers who must be bribed, sated or serviced if you want to claw your way up the wealth-power pyramid. Mr. Weinstein's alleged conduct and payoffs of those he exploited is par for the course in the corridors of power in the USA.

Secrets and Lies: Three Russian Stories and the Truth about "Progressives" and Russia

http://firstinfreedomdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2015-08-07-d47f891b_large.jpg

There’s still no evidentiary basis for claiming any of the Russian propaganda efforts on Facebook, or Google, or You Tube influenced the election in Trump’s favor. More likely a “woke” citizenry fed up with Hillary’s greed, corruption, lies, and incompetence and able to communicate directly with each other through the internet did it all by themselves.

Nobody Thinks About eBay: Even with 171 million users, the online shopping giant is grasping for relevancy.

eBay has fallen far behind. It’s dedicated to remaining an online marketplace — nothing more than a platform on which buyers and sellers can interact — a position that’s hard to justify as it’s become less enticing to both kinds of users. It hasn’t invested in warehouses or inventory; it hasn’t introduced competitive shipping programs. It now needs to both differentiate and elevate itself, and then it must communicate all of that to the customer.

The Battle for France: The new intellectualism of cultural anxiety

http://www.vocfm.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/french-muslims.jpg

France is the epicenter of today’s fearsome battle between Western elites bent on protecting and expanding the well-entrenched policy of mass immigration and those who see this spreading influx as an ultimate threat to the West’s cultural heritage, not to mention its internal tranquility. In France it is a two-front war. One is the political front, where Marine Le Pen’s National Front has moved from the fringes of politics into the mainstream. The other is the intellectual front, where a new breed of writers, thinkers, and historians has emerged to question the national direction and to decry those who have set the country upon its current course.

Catalan Independence: Why Collectivists become tyrants when people seek independence

https://www.itgovernance.eu/blog/en/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Catalan-independence.jpg

Collectivists and advocates of a strong Central State, regardless of what other labels they use to identify themselves, have certain rules that they consistently follow in order to maintain power. One of those rules is that the collective is indivisible. They might pontificate endlessly about their superior democratic ideals, but when some people vote to leave en masse, either in polling booths or with their feet, the mask of benevolence always comes off and the true monster behind collectivism is revealed.
