The Truth About The Berkeley Riot

Seemingly following Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals", Liberal Progressive Socialists appear to believe, in a Trump world,  "the ends justify the means," as evidenced by the farce in Berkeley this week. Any and everything is justified by a lying mainstream media: riots and the destruction of property, assaults on those who disagree with them, and general lawlessness - all in the name of 'virtue signaling'.

The Disgusting Embrace Of Witch-Hunting McCarthyism By 'Liberals'

In her famous 1950 "Declaration of Conscience" speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Maine Republican Margaret Chase Smith hit out at the McCarthyites of her day. She said the scourge of McCarthyism "spread like cancerous tentacles of ‘know nothing, suspect everything’ attitudes." Today, it is not the right that is spreading its "cancerous tentacles" of suspicion, but the fake "progressive left."

The Ruling Elite Has Lost The Consent Of The Governed

Every ruling Elite needs the consent of the governed: even autocracies, dictatorships and corporatocracies ultimately rule with the consent, however grudging, of the governed. The American ruling Elite has lost the consent of the governed. This reality is being masked by the mainstream media, mouthpiece of the ruling class, which is ceaselessly promoting two false narratives...

Hillary Clinton Is In Deep Trouble: "Hordes Of Wall Street Executives" Descend Upon Philly

We believe Hillary Clinton lost the Presidency this past week. While the explosive DNC leaks will undoubtably have a long lasting effect, this post will barely reference the leaks. Rather, it will explain how recent decisions by the Hillary campaign played right into Trump’s hands by essentially waving a gigantic middle finger to the 73% of Americans who think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

Trump Narrows Clinton's Lead But Latest Polls Show Voters "Hate Them Both"

The last few weeks have seen Hillary Clinton's lead over Donald Trump reduced notably from over 8pts to below 3pts as her poll numbers tumbled post-Comey. While variance (discussed here) across the polls remains yuuge, Clinton remains the clear winner among African-Americans and younger Americans while Trump leads among whites and men; but as one pollster noted with regard the unfavorables, "Let me summarize the poll into four little words: 'They hate them both'."

More Questions Emerge About Skewed Hillary Polls

One glimpse at the massive variance between the last two days polls in swing states suggests something very odd is going on. Simply put, given the post-Email-gate disapproval ratings, Pro-Hillary Clinton polls simply don't make sense... "The American public is far more pissed off than even you’d like to admit. Part of the reason you refuse to admit it is that this reality is truly terrifying."

This Is What Hillary Clinton's Advisors Really Think Of The American Public

ACQ: “Look, it doesn’t matter what you or I think. The President wants the TPP, and the Party isn’t going to oppose him....They don’t see much of a risk. Most Americans don’t know or care about the TPP.”

RR: “But they know big corporations are running economic policy. They think the whole system is corrupt. Believe me, Trump will use this against Hillary.” ACQ: “I think you’re being too cynical.”

Wait A Minute - Who's The Real Fascist?

If you're an Establishment insider, the mainstream media will give you plenty of column inches and airtime to label Donald Trump a "dangerous" fascist. However, the all-powerful central state worshipped by Reich and all the other Establishment insiders, Democrat and Republican alike, is the true culmination of fascism.

Is This The Death Of The American Political Establishment?

Americans know a takeover has occurred and they blame the establishment for it. The establishment doesn’t see what’s happening because it has cut itself off from the lives of most Americans. It also doesn’t wish to understand, because that would mean acknowledging its role in bringing all this on.
