America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution

... “America’s Ruling Class — and the Perils of Revolution

 

Our ruling class’s agenda is power for itself. While it stakes its claim through intellectual-moral pretense, it holds power by one of the oldest and most prosaic of means: patronage and promises thereof. Like left-wing parties always and everywhere, it is a “machine,” that is, based on providing tangible rewards to its members. Such parties often provide rank-and-file activists with modest livelihoods and enhance mightily the upper levels’ wealth. Because this is so, whatever else such parties might accomplish, they must feed the machine by transferring money or jobs or privileges — civic as well as economic — to the party’s clients, directly or indirectly. This, incidentally, is close to Aristotle’s view of democracy. Hence our ruling class’s standard approach to any and all matters, its solution to any and all problems, is to increase the power of the government — meaning of those who run it, meaning themselves, to profit those who pay with political support for privileged jobs, contracts, etc. Hence more power for the ruling class has been our ruling class’s solution not just for economic downturns and social ills but also for hurricanes and tornadoes, global cooling and global warming.

North Korean Crisis a Product of Failed Pre-Trump Leadership: Successive administrations neglected to pressure China to deal with its rogue neighbor

https://www.thailandchina.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/the-north-korean-crisis-chinas-censorship-victory-an-unlikely-chinese-film-and-other-stories.JPG

The incompetence, gullibility and lassitude of three successive administrations have dumped the horrible problem of North Korea into the lap of President Donald Trump. The shilly-shallying and pretend-resolutions that marked the old way of dealing with Pyongyang have come to a dead end.

THE DEEP STATE STRIKES BACK: Fired White House staffer argues "deep state" attacked Trump administration because the President represents a threat to cultural Marxist memes, globalists, and bankers.

The memo at the heart of the latest blowup at the U.S. National Security Council paints a dark picture of media, academics, the “deep state,” and other enemies allegedly working to subvert U.S. President Donald Trump.

Collapsing America

http://cdns.yournewswire.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/american-collapse-says-citigroup-650x350.jpg

Throughout the history of civilization, empires rise and then fall. Although the final stages of collapse can be rapid and violent, the actual collapse is gradual and occurs over years and decades. Because of gradualism, the collapse is usually imperceptible to the people. Only a handful observe the increasing oppression of the people and recognize it for what it is. And no one, it seems, learns from history.

Leak of full transcripts of presidential conversations with foreign leaders a milestone in effort to paralyze the Trump administration. Since the election there has been an unprecedented attempt to unwind the election result. Events have accelerated on several fronts lately with attempts from outside and within to paralyze the Trump administration.

Seymour Hersh Exposes ‘RussiaGate’ Scandal as a CIA-Planted Lie and Revenge Against Trump by the Deep State

http://a.mytrend.it/prp/2017/06/694862/o.416529.jpg

In a youtube video upload-dated August 1st, he reveals from his inside FBI and Washington DC Police Department sources — now, long before the Justice Department’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller will be presenting his official ‘findings’ to the nation — that the charges that Russia had anything to do with the leaks from the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to Wikileaks, that those charges spread by the press, were a CIA-planted lie, and that what Wikileaks had gotten was only leaks (including at least from the murdered DNC-staffer Seth Rich), and were not from any outsider (including ’the Russians’), but that Rich didn’t get killed for that, but was instead shot in the back during a brutal robbery, which occurred in the high-crime DC neighborhood where he lived. Here is the video.

The New American Civil War Has Begun

Everyone who follows American affairs should understand that the country is now in what amounts to a second, but non-violent civil war. There are still serious commentators who sagely counsel a return to bipartisanship, “reaching across the aisle,” as if anything of the kind were remotely possible. The Democrats and some of the Republicans smell blood and wish to see the Trump presidency destroyed and believe that to be possible.

The real reasons why Trump has flipped on his campaign promises

It is important to note that Trump was placed in office as a means to scapegoat all conservatives and the principles of sovereignty and limited government for the disasters that will inevitably follow. This is the premise that I used to successfully predict Trump’s election win, and it is the premise that I used to successfully predict Trump’s behavior and policy shifts up to this point. Trump is in office for one reason — to destroy the name of conservatism for all time.

Chelsea Clinton: The Clinton Machine Pushes the Vapid Daughter Onto the American Public

http://images.gawker.com/18k1jo2mfzummjpg/c_scale,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800.jpg

Hasn't Bill Clinton been fellated enough? Chelsea Clinton, most recently lionized on the cover of Variety, is a 37-year-old multi-millionaire who has never uttered an interesting word about any subject at any time during the course of her life. Judging from the evidence of her public statements, she has never had an original thought — it isn’t clear that she has had a thought at all. In tribute to her parents, she was given a series of lucrative sinecures, producing a smattering of sophomoric videos for NBC at a salary of $600,000 a year. She later went more formally into the family business, leaving her fake job at NBC for a fake job in her parents’ fake charity. She gave interviews about how she just couldn’t get interested in money and bought a $10 million Manhattan apartment that stretches for the better part of a city block.

Donald Trump: The unlikeliest populist

http://c1.nrostatic.com/sites/default/files/styles/original_image_with_cropping/public/uploaded/donald-trump-conservative-populism-b.jpg?itok=9sfo3u2K

Despite his wealth and privilege, Trump perhaps was able to channel his own past frustrations with bureaucrats, condescending Palm Beach country clubs, corrupt New York City officials, and liberal community activists into sympathy for those often neglected in Middle America. Trump, for all his glitzy lifestyle, exuded an empathy for his own workers, and, by speech and comportment, he seemed more at ease with his carpenters and electricians than with his bankers. And for those who accused Trump of being precisely what he was railing against, he often countered that all the better he knew how to fight such corruption firsthand.

The Case Against Immigration: Why the United States Should Look Out for Itself

http://eaglerising.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/antiimmigration.jpg

Most immigrants come to the United States to work. But because the U.S. legal immigration system prioritizes family relationships over job skills—and because the government has generally tolerated illegal immigration—a large share of immigrants are unskilled. In fact, half of the adult immigrants in the United States have no education beyond high school.  Such workers generally earn low wages, which means that they rely on the welfare state even though they are working.

THE AMERICAN LEFT'S POLITICAL MYTHS AND LIES: Conspiracy theories abound while media ignore the real story

The Democrats, the corrupt mainstream corporate media, and some Republican NeverTrump bitter-enders are still so addled by losing the 2016 election that they have lost themselves in lies, space-alien autopsies, and earthling abductions, as they continue to tell preposterous conspiracy theories straight out of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, while the real story––the illegal leaks of classified intelligence involving American citizens––is ignored.

America’s two governments: One is elected by the people, the other is in total control...

The Deep State retains its hold on power by creating chaos and causing destruction. The Deep State is the spying apparatus that scarfs up data on everyone all around the world and meddles in supposed free and fair elections and overthrows regimes for its own purposes. It is the regulatory bureaucracy that writes laws and regulations on such a scope that every American commits multiple felonies through the normal course of a day so that the state can expropriate their land and their wealth. It is the police state that enforces these and other regulations and laws passed legally and illegally and extraconstitutionally, and which steals the people’s liberty...

AMERICA'S DEEP STATE IN TURMOIL: The Conflict Within The Deep State Just Broke Into Open Warfare

https://i1.wp.com/www.acting-man.com/blog/media/2015/12/DeepGovernment_SocialCard_BW.jpg

The battle raging in the Deep State isn't just a bureaucratic battle - it's a war for the soul, identity and direction of the nation. When do the unlimited powers of the Intelligence/Security agencies threaten America's domestic and global national interests? The CIA and its political enablers claim the agency's essentially unlimited powers, partially revealed by Wikileak's Vault 7, pose no threat to America's interests, since they are intended to "defend" American interests. This is the rationale presented by neocon CIA allies in both political parties: the CIA can't possibly threaten America's interests because the CIA defines America's interests. This is the wormhole down which civil liberties and democracy have drained. It is an extraordinarily defining moment in American history when the director of the FBI publicly declares that there is no such thing as "absolute privacy" in the U.S.

It’s time to bust apart the regulatory state that enriches the big government-big business cartel. And we can start with 20 ideas on a state and federal level that kick government to the curb and return the power to consumers, entrepreneurs, and health care providers.

OBAMA'S LEGACY TO AMERICA: A world on fire and a country divided

http://cdn.inquisitr.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/obama-explosive-golf-painting.jpg

Lead-from-behind Obamism proved to be little more than allowing the United Nations and the European Union to redefine American interests as something akin to Davos globalization. Trump seems none of the above. But he is inheriting a world that is imploding, an electorate that has no belly to fix it, and a military that for the present is in no shape to do so even if it wanted to.

The new American Tyranny of the 21st Century is like Russian Communism in the 20th Century

https://plnami.blob.core.windows.net/media/2017/02/USA-Russia021717-800x500.jpg

Bureaucratic tyranny, a ruling oligarchy and Deep State power are as nefarious in the United States as in any so-called communist country. It is just more sophisticated and the media plus the public school system has sold the U.S. brand of communism as democracy. When the U.S. spying apparatus is unleashed unrestrained on the American people – and even people running for president — you are de facto living in a communist police state.

Former President Barack Obama is not finished with his deconstruction of the United States and the U.S. Constitution. Operating out of D.C., Obama has 30,000 minions who are spreading discontent throughout the country. He oversees his group, Organizing for Action, out of his mansion which is a stone’s throw from the corridors of Congress.

Internal Secession and the Road to Ruin: The U.S.A. is Two Different Countries

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-sz8ZNlSSoEs/T13V7omhW2I/AAAAAAAABUQ/_On42SqPXhs/s1600/amerika.png

Trump did not cause the deep division in the country. It caused him. There are two very different Americas. I suspect  that the half of the country that voted for Trump, that voted with wild enthusiasm, that roared at huge rallies, was not so  much voting for Trump as against the other America. It was just that they had never had a chance before. The two countries have little in common and do not belong on the same geography.
