The US Empire is in terminal decline and heading for a dystopian future. Yet no-one – not the generals, the politicians, or the fawning MSM – will be held accountable for all the military follies that herald its imminent collapse.

Yep. One of the witnesses testified to the FBI that he personally witnessed the involvement of George H W Bush (Bush the father, not the son) in this ring.

Note that post-presidency, the Bush's, Clintons, and Obamas are all on very friendly terms. They all support OBiden as well. The press and corporate boardrooms are in their camp. Their current project is normalizing what we all instinctively know to be abhorrent.

The power is firmly established. They will not stop until they are stopped. Think what is involved in breaking this power. Goliath is no joke.

This video has been posted on here multiple times over the past year, but periodically it seems worth it to keep repeating.

It is worth repeating because this is a relatively ground-level view of the process by which our society is being destroyed. The individual characters have changed (Larry King, the bad guy in this case, is long gone), but the process remains the same. And the depth of the rot is well-documented here. Importantly, this demonstrates this rot is not a partisan issue.

This moral degeneracy being the key to power rises in societies over time (ours is hardly the first to deal with this), and it is always the herald to their destruction. This was thirty years ago, and the rot is only worse since.

The victims in this case then went on to be prosecuted for perjury, ensuring that the guilty would be perceived as innocent and the innocent as guilty.

This is what we are up against. This reminder cannot be posted too many times.

A lot of laws and maybe a constitutional amendment would need to be passed in order for this to happen.

1)Make it illegal for anyone with dual citizenship to be in federal government, elected and appointed. Bar them from dual citizenship after office.

2)AIPAC is the major problem. We give Israel billions, who dump hundreds of millions into reelection campaigns through AIPAC. This creates a cycle of politicians voting pro-israel in order for a foreign government to fund their political campaign. Meanwhile, 120k in russian facebook ads is considered the only problem.

this is the most likely candidate..

“objectivity” feels fickle when the basic terms we use to report news implicitly stake a claim. using “israel” but never “palestine,” or “war” but not “siege and occupation” are political choices—yet media make those exact choices all the time without being flagged as biased

I understood the Cold War as an ideological conflict. The Warsaw Pact was set to invade Western Europe because it was the right thing to do. Communism wasn't just a historical inevitability, it was a moral imperative. And if you took an other view, you had to be ready to defend yourself. So we made NATO and prepared to defend ourselves.

Then Communism collapsed and the Berlin wall came down and it was all over. Maybe there was a case for not shutting down NATO immediately; what had so suddenly collapsed might unexpectedly revive.

Thirty years on from the fall of the Berlin wall, and the defeated ideology is dead and forgotten in Russia. We can stop worrying and convert our swords into ploughshares.

Strangely the US wants to keep fighting the Cold War, even though it won. This is making me re-examine my life. Was my side also bad guys; out to conquer, and not just concerned with self-defense?

And what did we do in response?

We doubled the number of nations in NATO we are sworn to defend, moved the alliance deep into Eastern Europe and adopted a policy of containment of a shrunken Russia.

So it's Putin against the people of the United States? "Putin’s Pipeline"

Nope, it's the 'elite' and globalists who own and run the human farm known as the United States, fighting against their competitors running the human farm known as Russia, for power and control. If all that isn't simply a show to keep the herds mesmerized.

This was probably all clear to close-lookers in the past, but now that they've completely stopped pretending to not be evil (Xiden, Zognald, Soetoro, Bush...), it would take diligent hard work to not see it.

Based on the fact that industrialized nations are far wealthier, have a much higher standard of living, and are better for all citizens by any sane metric. And that status is achieved by not having 50% of people occupied doing something 2% of the people can get done. How do you not understand that this kind of waste of potential and capacity is bad? It's literally no different than having a 2% farming community and a 48% unemployment rate.

50% of India's population are farmers! That's insane. That is not a good thing. That means that 50% of the population are literally not contributing anything other than the food that could otherwise be produced by 2% of the population. They are literally living on welfare. This is not an economical system. This is holding the entire country back. No wonder that despite having a similar population to China they are still a third world country.

It sucks that their way of life is changing, but they really have no one to blame but themselves for having spent the last two generations sitting on their asses doing nothing because they can grow a few potatoes 3 months out of the year and be guaranteed enough money for them to do nothing else. They should have spent that time learning skills, getting degrees, building small businesses, creating art. Instead they did nothing.

The left always claims that if only the working class were unshackled from the oppressive working class life they would build all these great things. India is proof that it doesn't work that way. People on welfare are proof that it doesn't work that way. In reality the vast, vast majority of people will do nothing productive if not force to.

Hilarious choice of words, and not well-chosen, but that Tory shithead is a literal opportunist cuck, just like blacks who supported Trump, and people of color are really angry with these opportunist shills who act like they represent people of colour, but are instead plants by the establishment to lick the balls of the right-wing 1%, and people of color have no problem calling people like this house niggers. They deserve it, and they do not help charities like the one arranged by Aysha Khanom.

No, it's US and its client states are started and continuing waging economic war through various means such as sanctions. Thankfully that helped to significantly boost domestic agricultural industry.

The bravery of protesters in red, seeking to expose a ruling elite that has gorged on the system, is thrilling.

No, it was a protest straight-up financed through foreign investment just like any other colouring revolution. And now it's being used just like BLM movement in use (see recent Time article on that - https://time.com/5936036/secret-2020-election-campaign/).

I would love to see a better and more effective government in Russia. However it doesn't looks like a foreign puppet Navalny, the one similar to Guaido or Tikhanovskaya, would keep people's interests in mind if got a chance to get any power. Thanks guys, you already helped Yeltsin to get a second term, that would be it - we'll go without your help or good intentions from now.

Thanks for seeing where I'm coming from. What part of what Breitbart says about this bothers you? I prefer to be as suspicious as possible of any source of information; this is far more important, in fact, if I am sympathetic to the perspective they are presenting. So if you're willing, I'm happy to hear reasons to doubt what they say.

Thanks for this. I actually agree with much of it, and argee that state power should not arbitrarily restrict individuals acting in good faith. The milk shop, like other food shops in the UK are not prohibited at the moment, but must arrange for masks and social distancing. Perhaps the cops screw-up, as noted by one of the customers, and people appropriately were socialy distanced. I'm not sure if they had masks, however. There are lots of people outside in the UK these days. If they gather around a milk shop, this may be a problem. What Breitbart has to say about this is however misleading.

The fact that it is due to Covid restrictions is actually precisely the point.

Ignoring all the controversy about the numbers, there is one fundamental point on which all sides agree: the virus we are talking about is contagious via contact with other people either through airborne droplets and/or aerosols or through contact with mutual surfaces where those aerosols might collect. Can we agree on that?

If so, then the primary strategy for diminishing spread of the virus should be diminishing social settings with high density of gathered people. An equally important part of this strategy is that areas where people come together must be as well ventilated as possible to avoid developing high concentrations of the virus. The amount of virus a person is exposed to makes a difference in the likelihood of becoming ill.

Now I will admit to an assumption, based on the experience of my own life, but I don't think my assumption is particularly "far from center". I go to farmers' markets a lot. In my experience, farmers' markets are usually outside (outdoor air is the definition of the best "ventilation" available to us on the planet), and they usually involve far lower density of people/space than do supermarkets.

With that assumption behind my thinking (the stand photographed with the article is an outside location; if Breitbart is mis-using the photo, that would be a legitimate criticism, but I haven't seen that said), then the idea that moving people from an outdoor low-density shopping environment (relatively low transmission capacity) to a supermarket - an indoor more poorly ventilated and higher person/space density environment (relatively high transmission capacity) - is going to be worse for transmission of Covid.

This fits with the cops ticketing people out walking their dogs in parks far from any other people. There is zero logic to this kind of enforcement if the goal is to prevent transmission of an air/surface-borne respiratory virus.

Why bring fascism and state support of corporate entities into the argument? Well, given that I see no honest rationale to prevent disease spread, and the rules are there, then why? The de-facto effect is to advantage the corporate chains over the individual farmers. I give credit to those running the show that they are arranging things to their advantage. This is advantageous to them, and I credit them with the intelligence to say this advantage is intentional, not accidental.

Edit to add: Incitement to hatred? I have no hatred for any people. If incitement to hatred is incitement to hate the exercise of irrational and soul-crushing government power, then I plead guilty. I do hate the arbitrary use of state power against individuals acting in good faith.

FFS: Breitbart scum are spinning this into rabid right-wing clickbait. You can see in the post to which they link that the problem was DUE ONLY TO COVID19 restrictions, and not to the rest of this incitement to hatred. What those assholes link to is a COVID19 issue:

I think the term "corporatocracy" is best, because it accurately describes the situation: The state runs itself like a business, and corporations are pretty much in control due to lobbying, bribes, propaganda, etc. The fact that democracy is so decentralized and allows for things such as lobbying and campaign donations allowing megacorporations like Google, Apple, the news/weapons/prison industry, and numerous others to control society and the government entirely.

Yeah, we've had a problem with people overreaching their authority, and misunderstanding instructions. This is a prime example.

Two women got arrested for taking a walk in a national park while carrying Starbucks coffee, food told them the rules now prevented them having a picnic.

Pretty sure a coffee does not make a picnic.

This is why I don't like "-isms", and I should have stayed away from using one.

I did use it intentionally, meaning that under fascism, there is no "public" and "private" because the interests of business are the interests of the state. That's why Mussolini described it as corporatism. Corporate leaders are simply an extension of the power of the central authorities. Thus, when I see police being used to enforce corporate monopoly (forcing citizens to use supermarkets - i.e. centrally controlled production/distribution chains - is considered in the state's interest, and supersedes the individual farmers' rights to make a living), I see fascism: state power used to enforce corporate profit.

That said, as you point out, communist systems are also about central power being enforced on their populations at the expense of individual freedom.

Like I said, I should have stayed away from the "-isms". All terms that have such broad reach are inherently useless because of the amount they bleed into each other, describing the same negative elements of human nature with subtly different emphasis.

There is one overarching theme. When faceless bureaucracies mandate individual behavior which is counter to the individual's best interests, and they use the force of the state to do so, we are entering one form or other of totalitarian system. The raw insanity of police preventing citizens from being in a place that is almost certainly a safer environment in "Covid" terms to force them into supermarkets has zero to do with public health. This is about the state enforcing centralized economic power.

China is a serial human rights abuser and is committing genocide right now. There is no way a state with high moral standards like the EU should be doing any deals with them whatsoever. They should be sanctioning China, not rewarding it.

That all makes sense, whenever I see the media pushing something I often look in the opposite direction to see what's really going on.

About 120 years ago the majority of people were still of the serf class, for lack of a better name. The rulers had a good hold on them, as they had for all time really. Then something changed, people say it was the industrial revolution but more specifically I believe it was OIL. Oil was so cheap, so abundant that the flow on effects to average person lifted them out of poverty and on the road "literally" to a much better lifestyle.

Soon they were clogging all the best beaches, hogging the slopes at the ski resorts and noisily motoring their little pleasure boats in and out amongst the 'elite's' luxury yachts. This must have been galling for the old monied families of the world, as it would be today. This reset might be simply an effort to re-balance the rich/poor equation as they see it.

I don't bother putting it back on Wikipedia anymore.

Here's the definition:

Fifth-generation warfare 5GW - propaganda and information warfare to accomplish strategic, operational, and tactical objectives, without measurable damage that the target can identify. Importantly in 5GW the target may not even know it has been attacked, thus the target has already lost that battle.

As long as people think COVID or SJWs or Alt-Right or whatever is the problem they're not realizing the class war is waged from the ruling class and their deep state.

Well thanks for the vote of confidence Jason, I would have added you by now but I'm pretty slack with those aspects of forums. I had only one on my list, Node, now it's two. It's difficult in places like forums, there is that settling in period where you can tend to offend others by blurting out some criticism of a post, sometimes because you didn't bother to read it properly lol. Phone conversations can be awkward too when discussing deep things, there are no visual body language triggers like when you're sitting in person.
