BOTH Sides Guilty! AntiFA Joins Domestic Terrorist Organization Status Along With White Supremacists Reader 09/04/2017 (Mon) 13:08:27 Id: 2ad77b [Preview] No. 1576 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/1447 & >>>/news/1425 & >>>/news/1423

The FBI have designated Antifa as a ‘domestic terrorist organization’ – following in the footsteps of the DHS who declared the same earlier in July.

Previously unreported FBI and DHS studies have found that “anarchist extremist” groups like Antifa have been the “primary instigators of violence at public rallies” going back to at least April 2016.

Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.

Since well before the Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly, DHS has been issuing warnings about the growing likelihood of lethal violence between the left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacist and nationalist groups.

Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.

Zerohedge.com reports: Not surprisingly, law enforcement officials noted that the rise in Antifa violence overlapped perfectly with Trump’s campaign as they made appearances at rally after rally to incite chaos…all the while making it seem as if violent, racist Trump supporters were to blame.

“It was in that period [as the Trump campaign emerged] that we really became aware of them,” said one senior law enforcement official tracking domestic extremists in a state that has become a front line in clashes between the groups. “These antifa guys were showing up with weapons, shields and bike helmets and just beating the shit out of people. … They’re using Molotov cocktails, they’re starting fires, they’re throwing bombs and smashing windows.”

Almost immediately, the right-wing targets of the antifa attacks began fighting back, bringing more and larger weapons and launching unprovoked attacks of their own, the documents and interviews show. And the extremists on both sides have been using the confrontations, especially since Charlottesville, to recruit unprecedented numbers of new members, raise money and threaten more confrontations, they say.

good, actually.

By enforcing such rigid optics, you can easily say you yourself are "not a part of those faGGots"

Where's my tiki torch? Where's my kekistani flag? I guess I must not be an 'extremist' nazi then! Just your everyday pepe-dumping youtubing shitposting kind. Hell, even authentic natsoc like Linder can easily judo-toss this one back at (((them.)))

But Antifa has made no attempt to differentiate themselves at all, due to that age-old lihbrul chant of "Solidarity!" they've blathered since the pro-pally protests during the first Bush's reign.

You can almost start running them over with impunity, just give it a little bit more push, then grab the keys to the nearest bulldozer.



North Korea claims to have developed hydrogen bomb Reader 09/03/2017 (Sun) 21:24:20 Id: 3ecdb5 [Preview] No. 1558 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I'm getting fed up with this. I could have accepted them having a few nukes, and acting crazy, but with the constant threats of the psdt two decades I can't trust them to actually be rational. They have a long history of kidnapping too and randomly shelling the South Korean island and stuff.
Invading them would not be as unethical the as Iraq because they shown us they have nukes and are threatening to nuke the US and any of her allies they can; their WMDs are neither a lie nor a mistake as Iraq was.

So can we just blow them up already and get it over with? Seoul getting leveled and a couple of nukes from them are a reasonable tradeoff versus waiting for them to get stronger. All other nuclear countries have been responsible enough to not ever use them, but North Korea refuses to negotiate with pretty much everyone, and doesn't really try to enter international agreements with anyone. They have been under China's aegis and have no need for more powerful nukes to defend themselves, but they keep building them to terrorize their innocent neighbors.

The only (real) thing we have to fear about Russia is the fact they are creating a strong movement against the US dollar as a reserve currency status. If successful, Russia could isolate the US from global trade and countries would start rejecting the dollar en mass. Their ability to do this has increased since they have gotten China on their side (China is now dumping US T-bonds at an accelerated pace).

As for a military threat? Only if you allow your country to be disarmed can another country be considered an actual military threat.

Do prepare. Their are domestic enemies on your land who want you dead.

Sure, North Korea may be more corrupt. But NK is NOT a major threat to America. Hell, outsourcing our manufacturing industry to China was a much much graver threat to the US then NK could ever pull against us. And we - or should I say our own government - allowed that to happen, not North Korea!

America is a very strong, resilient and well armed country. The ONLY thing we have to fear are traitors within who have infiltrated our democracy who are attempting to undermine it.

I'm honestly much more worried about our own government trying to disarm or subjugate us, or our own foreign policy backfiring then I am worried about a small country flaunting some nukes. NK is a circus show, always has been, likely always will be. If we really wanted to nuke them off the planet our military would have done so already.

My point was our brazenly fucked up monetary and foreign policies have been more of a threat to America (as in blowback) than countries like North Korea could ever present us with. Sure they could shoot an ICBM at Japan or South Korea and knock out their grid, but as far as NK nuking the US good luck with that. We already have a vast amount of other problems to deal with domestically: fiscal/debt insolvency, the massive industrial outsourcing problem (thanks to 'trade' agreements like NAFTA), Eastern countries moving against the USD as reserve currency - dumping our T-bonds and trading outside the dollar, unsustainable border instability (drug cartels, gangs flooding the US border), the student loan racket & bubble, another mortgage bubble in the works (similar to 2008), systemic inside corruption, Hurricanes flooding into the coasts, Soros and his hired communist mercenaries trying to stir civil war in the streets, etc. The list goes on and on... not to mention drug addiction and poverty has been skyrocketing over the last 30 years ("war on drugs" my ass!)

North Korea is not a nice country, I get it. But a serious threat? No, not nearly as much as the threats we are already facing in America. I have been watching this decline since the mid 80s and it has reached epic proportions under the previous two administrations and the current administration seems to be having a very difficult time solving these problems.

We can't keep pointing fingers and interfering with other nations unless we deal with our own problems first (which are vastly growing like a malignant tumor destroying its host).



Even Democrats Begin To Admit US Trade and Tax Policy Have Encouraged Shipping Jobs Overseas Reader 09/04/2017 (Mon) 00:31:38 Id: 585d7b [Preview] No. 1566 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
During Friday’s Democratic Weekly Address, Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) argued US trade and tax policy have encouraged companies to shut down factories in the US and move production overseas.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=163vjUl3-yI [Embed]

What is ironic is this is the EXACT same threat that the "rascist" "fascist" "bigot" President Trump has been warning about during his whole campaign. Read the transcript:

“Hi, I’m Sherrod Brown. First, I want to thank the first responders, the men and women in the National Guard, the so many volunteers working so hard to protect and comfort those in the path of Hurricane Harvey.

Our hearts break for the families of all those who lost loved ones, including Lieutenant Nicholas Warren Michael Taylor of Ohio, who was on an Air Force training mission in Texas. According to news reports, Lieutenant Taylor gave his life trying to bring others to safety.

To all those suffering devastating loss, please know that your fellow Americans stand behind you, and we will be here for you as you recover and rebuild.

This Labor Day, we honor the men and women who built this country, who continue to power our economy today, including all of those who are critical to hurricane rescue and recovery efforts.

American workers laid down the railroad tracks that moved people and products across the country. They toiled in mines digging the coal that powered our Industrial Revolution. They forged the steel that built our bridges and skyscrapers. They worked on shop floors building cars and trucks and planes that would take our country to new heights. And they built the strongest middle class, and with it, the strongest nation that the world has ever known.

This pin I wear is a canary in a birdcage. A steel worker gave it to me to remind me of the progress that we’ve made in this country for working people. At the turn of the last century, in 1900, workers took canaries down into mines. If the canary stopped singing, it meant there was poisonous gas and the workers had mere minutes to get out.

Trump got us a non-pozzed supreme court justice, who will uphold the Constitution. This wouldn't have been the case if Hillary or other MSM candidate got elected.
And if this was Trump's only contribution, that's still a lot better than what Obama ever did. But we've yet to see how much he does, as there are still some years left in his first term. A lot of people on the Internet claim to be "experts" and know intimately what Trump is doing and why, but that's really just a reflection of their huge egos. Nobody but Trump and maybe a few others close to him know what's going to go down exactly.

I do like the fact that Trump withdrew from the TPP, that was a disaster waiting to happen. And I do like how he called out and terminated the CIA's program of funding/arming Islamic militants (terrorists) in Syria. All they were trying to do was undermine Assad's government and force regime change in Syria.
His Supreme Court pick was a breath of fresh air too (hopefully he is able to stay alive for a while).

Although, there are some things I don't agree with Trump about. We need to get out of the Middle East fiasco, not continue the FAILED "war on terror" BS. It would save us lots of money and troops' lives if we were to stop our crazy foreign policy. I don't like the fact that Trump supported "Ryancare" which was basically Obamacare 2.0 if you did your research. He promised full repeal, well lets have it. I don't like some of the people he surrounds himself with either like all the Goldman Sachs bankers and globalists like McMasters. As far as giving Billions $$$ of weapons to Saudi Arabia when they are mass murders and human rights abusers? That's just as bad a thing Clinton or Bush or Obama would have done.

damn your near-numeral perfection-ness!
Way I see the 'war' unfolding is the others wanted to perpetuate it to keep up the MIC taxpayer bilking scam.
If he allows Mattis to do what he wants, then there will be no more "war on terror." Because it'd be over.
Ending the CIA program's over halfway there, now let's see if he's got the guts to see that through to the end and wipe out (((their))) assets in the region.
Once all Insane McCain's friends have been bombed to dust over there, the "moderate muslim" resistance movement will look a lot less organised.
Keep in mind as well not to confuse "war on ISIS" with "war on terror" since ISIS is actually not a terror group but a private army, ambitious bedouin goatherders given modern toys and direction by (((western))) shit-stirrers
Though the best case scenario IMO is actually not winning the war on terror, but wiping out ISIS and letting the natives get back on the poppy fields....Which will in turn negate the money and power of the south american cartels, making them easier to deal with. Letting the taliban sell dope to college dopes actually assists with a more pressing local security problem. The threat of a single bombing every 8 years is a hell of a lot less costly than the constant stream of rapists and killers hopping back and forth across the border. (and they'll probably lose their reason for blowing things up anyway if the US packs up and leaves entirely)
The Ryancare thing looks to be the most troublesome, as it shows he's getting pushed towards listening to some 'bad hombres' up there by supposedly trustworthy people. Probably tired by now, but it's time to break out the old "blame kushner" banner again.
He's probably getting paid off to pressure Ivanka to tell 'daddy' what a good idea it is.
If only he'd taken the other one.
The GS guys count more as "Hollywood" (though that means they are still globalists) since he met Mnuchin while he was running Rat Pac studios. That one can fall a lot of different ways, depending on which Hollywood (Voight's or Jolie's) they prefer to see survive the entertainment biz crash.

WSJ Reporter Investigating Hillary’s Ties To Russia Murdered Reader 09/10/2017 (Sun) 19:14:34 Id: 4c6e6f [Preview] No. 1617 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A Wall Street Journal writer who was investigating Hillary Clinton’s ties to Russia was found dead in his apartment under suspicious circumstances.

Joseph Rago, a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial writer for the WSJ, was found dead in his New York City apartment last July.

According to a NYPD spokeswoman, the cause of death is as yet undetermined.

“The cause and manner of death are pending further studies following today’s examination,” a spokeswoman for the city’s medical examiner’s office said.

According to Free Republic, he was reportedly investigating Hillary’s involvement in the purchase of Russian drug company Veropharm by Abbot Labs at a time in 2014 when sanctions against Russia would have prevented the sale. The purchase was accomplished by a US shell company named Kew Garden Hills, LLC (registered in Delaware –and- Hillary Clinton’s home State of New York) acquiring approximately 98% of Veropharm shares—and then their being bought by Abbott Laboratories. Hillary has ties to both Abbot Labs and Kew Garden Hills LLC.

Critical to note about Abbott Laboratories acquiring Veropharm, this report explains, is that it was accomplished on 12 December 2014—which was 9 months from the March 2014 Obama regimes sanctions against Russia prohibiting such company takeovers—and that only someone with Hillary Clinton’s power and lust for money could make happen.

To how this takeover was completed in order to evade the Obama regime sanctions against Russia, this report details, was accomplished by a US shell company named Kew Garden Hills, LLC (registered in Delaware –and- Hillary Clinton’s home State of New York) acquiring approximately 98% of Veropharm shares—and then their being bought by Abbott Laboratories.

Handling this takeover transaction, this report continues, was the Russian investment bank Renaissance Capital—who are most to be noted for their having paid former President Bill Clinton $500,000 for a speech he gave before their top executives in Moscow.

Now this really makes me pissed off. The US slanders other nations for attacking the press but yet we sit around and watch the same BS happening right here in America and no one bats a fucking eye! No one questions anything when journalists/whistleblowers end up dead or in prison in America. Yet we have the nerve to criticize other governments?

Pathetic. And what is more pathetic is the ever-so-obvious cover up behind the long list of deaths behind the Clinton crime family.



Jeff Sessions' DoJ Refuses To Investigate IRS Suppression of Tea Party Groups Reader 09/10/2017 (Sun) 19:13:35 Id: 1b17f6 [Preview] No. 1616 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Republicans slammed the Friday announcement by President Donald Trump’s justice department that it will not investigate the official who allegedly oversaw the IRS’ secret sabotage of Americans’ civic groups before the 2012 election.

“This is a terrible decision,” said a statement from Texas Rep. Kevin Brady, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees taxes and the IRS. His statement continued:

It sends the message that the same legal, ethical, and Constitutional standards we all live by do not apply to Washington political appointees – who will now have the green light to target Americans for their political beliefs and mislead investigators without ever being held accountable for their lawlessness. Not only has the Department of Justice chosen not to hold [IRS manager] Lois Lerner criminally liable for obstructing an official investigation by the Inspector General, the Department continues to defend the Internal Revenue Service’s unconstitutional actions against taxpayers in ongoing civil litigation.

“The decision not to prosecute Lois Lerner is a miscarriage of justice,” said an accompanying statement from the chairman of the tax policy subcommittee, Illinois Rep. Peter Roskam. He continued:

On top of Ms. Lerner’s actions against taxpayers – denying tax-exempt status to groups for political gain and failing to protect taxpayer information – the Department’s response blatantly ignores our most troubling finding: that Ms. Lerner intentionally misled federal investigators in a flagrant violation of the law. This is unacceptable and Ms. Lerner must be held accountable. Our democracy is injured when those who taxpayers entrust with great authority ignore the law to advance their own political agenda without repercussion.”

Tom Fitton, head of the Watchdog law firm Judicial Watch, joined the criticism, saying:

DOJ and FBI conspired with Lerner's IRS. No surprise they won't prosecute her or themselves. @realDonaldTrump should order a review.

Finnish Police Chief Calls For Terrorists To Murder Children To “Expand Tolerance” Reader 09/11/2017 (Mon) 23:57:38 Id: 9b177d [Preview] No. 1637 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A Finnish police superintendent has caused controversy by suggesting that asylum seekers with terrorist sympathies should be allowed into schools to “expand tolerance”.

The discussion arose in response to the August 18 Turku terror attack during which a 22-year-old Moroccan asylum seeker, Abderrahman Bouanane, stabbed 10 people, killing two.

The incident was the first terror attack in Finland since the end of World War II.

“On the contrary, people need to be motivated to stay in school….whether it’s a child or adult,” responded Superintendent Jari Taponen.

He was then asked by another individual, “As a police officer you support terrorists being in our children’s schools?”

“Even a terrorist can benefit from good learning! It might widen views and expand tolerance!” responded Taponen.

Asked whether he thought that would pose a security risk to children, Taponen said he had confidence in teachers to guarantee their safety.

Tax Dollars Wasted: Corrupt State Dept Forces Stranded American Victims to Foot the Bill for Hurricane Rescue Reader 09/11/2017 (Mon) 23:08:02 Id: c00e4e [Preview] No. 1632 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As if we didn't already know the utter contempt the American government has for the people it is supposed to serve, then this really takes the cake!

The corrupt State Department is demanding all US citizens in need of rescue from hurricane-struck areas first sign a promissory note requiring them to pay back the U.S. government all costs associated with their rescue, such as airfare, according to a copy of that form obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

US citizens seeking evacuation from islands hit by Hurricane Irma expressed surprise and shock when they were presented with the form, ensuring that all costs associated with the rescue all fully paid back to the U.S. government.

Isn't this what our taxpayer dollars are for? Apparently not anymore, USSA.

If the loan is not repaid in full, those listed on the forms can face penalties, such as a limitedly valid U.S. passport, according to the form.

The loan also is subject to "interest, penalties, and other charges for late payment," according to the form.

Is this something the constitution guarantees citizens? That they'll come pick your ass up because you're too stupid to evacuate or prepare for the worst possibility.

And nor can the federal government. We spend trillions of dollars in tax revenue PER YEAR. And for what exactly? So our military can go blow shit up in some third world country that poses little to no threat to us?

I'm sick of this. If we have to pay for our government, the least they could do is deal with simple emergencies and rescue efforts. What next? Will the police start charging burglary victims for a 9/11 phone call?



Venezuela Is About To Ditch The US Dollar, Join With BRICS Nations For Trade Reader 09/11/2017 (Mon) 13:59:47 Id: bd6c2f [Preview] No. 1625 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Thursday that his country would be seeking to “free” itself from the U.S. dollar this week.

According to reuters Maduro will look to use the weakest of two official foreign exchange regimes along with a basket of currencies. He was refering to Venezuela’s “DICOM” official exchange rate in which the dollar buys 3,345 bolivars.

So does this mean that Venezuela is about to be targeted for regime change?

Why this move will be a major blow to the US and why it matters is explained by Darius Shahtahmasebi via Anti Media:

Maduro hinted that the South American country would look to using the yuan instead, among other currencies.

“If they pursue us with the dollar, we’ll use the Russian ruble, the yuan, yen, the Indian rupee, the euro,” Maduro also said.

Venezuela sits on the world’s largest oil reserves but has been undergoing a major crisis, with millions of people going hungry inside the country which has been plagued with rampant, increasing inflation. In that context, the recently established economic blockade by the Trump administration only adds to the suffering of ordinary Venezuelans rather than helping their plight.

According to Reuters, a thousand dollars’ worth of local currency obtained when Maduro came to power in 2013 is now be worth little over one dollar.

A theory advanced in William R. Clark’s book Petrodollar Warfare – and largely ignored by the mainstream media – essentially asserts that Washington-led interventions in the Middle East and beyond are fueled by the direct effect on the U.S. dollar that can result if oil-exporting countries opt to sell oil in alternative currencies. For example, in 2000, Iraq announced it would no longer use U.S. dollars to sell oil on the global market. It adopted the euro, instead.

Now this makes the whole "North Korea threat" look like a fucking joke.

Does the majority of America not know the only reason we can still continue our already bankrupted, broken, insolvent monetary policy is because the dollar is still the global reserve currency being used to trade oil? Without that, goodbye king dollar. Meaning America would go full third world.

In this case, NK doesn't have to fire a single nuke! Russia and China could soon pull the rug under our central bank causing a huge shift in geo-political and monetary influence from West to East.
