Hillary bemoaning “lack of civility,” advocating mass violence

 

Former Democrat front runner Hillary Clinton, who is apparently now running for President in 2020, has just announced that if Democrats don’t win the mid-terms by taking back the House of Representatives, they will unleash mass violence across America.

“[Hillary Clinton] says that civility can ONLY return when the Democrats take back the government,” writes Martin Armstrong from ArmstrongEconomics.com. “Clearly, this is throwing down the gauntlet that it shall be their way or no way. Hillary is effectively advocating the destruction of the United States. She has simply stated bluntly that democracy will no longer be tolerated unless the Democrats win and then subjugate the opposition.”

This despicable tactic — now openly endorsed by Hillary Clinton herself — is an attempt to hold America hostage to the violent threats of deranged, lunatic Leftists who are now led by violence-pushing mob bosses like the Clintons. By advocating this threat against America, Clinton has committed to a path of violence for America unless Democrats get their way.

This shows the bad faith demonstrated by Democrats who have now repeatedly shown they will not accept the outcome of any election unless they win that election. Similarly, any institution the Democrats do not control is attacked as being “illegitimate.” The moment Brett Kavanaugh got confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, for example, Democrats began attacking the Supreme Court as “illegitimate.”

Democrats don’t believe in democracy, it turns out. They believe only in authoritarianism and tyrannical rule.

Most Americans continue to blindly believe that Democrats are playing by the rules. They assume that Democrats are participating in elections because they agree to the mechanism of how elections work… a kind of social contract. Civil society requires adherence to a “social contract” that says the outcomes of elections will be honored even if your favorite candidate doesn’t win.

But Democrats have abandoned that social contract, and they no longer operate in good faith. Elections have become nothing but a sham to the political Left, for if they win elections, they weaponized government against their political opponents. If they lose elections, they weaponize their obedient masses against the entire nation. Accordingly, the rest of America must recognize they are no longer dealing with fair, rational Democrats who will abide by the rules and honor the process of democracy. Instead, Democrats are threatening the nation with violence, promising civil unrest if they don’t win back political power at the next election.

This is equivalent to sending every American voter to the voting booths with a gun at their head. “Vote Democrat, or else…” should be the slogan of the DNC. Their planned destruction of America is now a very real part of the Democrats’ plan if they fail to win at the voting booth.

If you thought the Left’s mob violence demonstrated before the 2016 election was insane, that was just a tiny sample of what’s to come if they don’t get the election outcome they want in November.

From the top down, the Democrats are now a terrorist organization that seeks the complete destruction of America

It’s now crystal clear that the Democrat party is the party of terrorism, violence, lawlessness and destruction. Anyone who votes for a Democrat in the coming election is voting for evil, destructive forces that are now overtly threatening our nation.

Hillary: "Democrats can only be civil if we win"

People need to realize this is no longer merely a political war… and we must respond to the Democrat terrorists in the same way we might respond to any other form of terrorism or violence: With an overwhelming lawful response to arrest, imprison and prosecute those who commit acts of violence in our communities or against our citizens.

President Trump must now declare Antifa to be a domestic terrorism organization and carry out the mass arrests of Antifa leaders across the country. Similarly, when radical left-wing mobs attempt to take over cities like they accomplished in Portland over the past few days, local police must be ordered to arrest the violent mobs. If local mayors attempt to interfere with the police action to arrest violent mobs, then the local mayor should be arrested as well, and charged with interfering with police operations to restore civility.

Although Trump will likely not take these actions before the upcoming mid-term elections, we are urging him to replace Jeff Sessions at the DOJ immediately after the election, then issue DOJ orders to all police departments nationwide: No more backing down from violent left-wing mobs. Police must be free to engage the left-wing mobs, halt the violence, and even use deadly force in response to those mobs deploying deadly weapons against law enforcement.

Beyond national preparedness and the rising risk of civil war that Democrats are now promising to unleash, are you prepared for your own safety and protection? Videos of left-wing mobs clearly show they are willing to assault completely innocent people, including elderly white people merely attempting to drive their own cars through our cities.

 

[From an article by Mike Adams published by DC Dirty Laundry.com]

 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  As Mike Adams makes plain in his article above, Democrats have now lost whatever common sense they once had. They truly think that mass violence is the path they should now be taking. When you see the Democrats shouting and screaming obscenities, try to remember that these people are no longer in possession of all their faculties. The path YOU should be taking, if you are one of those being screamed at, is to completely ignore the screamer. Democrats have told us they cannot be civil any longer, which means we cannot have a civil conversation with them no matter how hard we try. So let’s just ignore them. How did they come to lose their civility and common sense? That’s anybody’s guess…and the guesses we’ve heard lately include demon possession, the “embodiment of evil,” and plain old “rampant stupidity.”

Judge Kavanaugh finally confirmed…

“I revere the Constitution. I believe that an independent and impartial judiciary is essential to our constitutional republic. If confirmed by the Senate to serve on the Supreme Court, I will keep an open mind in every case and always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law.”

Judge Kavanaugh

There was NO EVIDENCE that ANY of the spurious allegations against Brett Kavanaugh were true. No evidence at all. None.

What does that mean? It means that the Democorats made it all up, or paid others do it for them. They were willing to drag Judge Kavanaugh, and his family, through the mud for weeks trying to dig up enough false garbage to make his nomination somehow go away.

In the end, the Democorats lost. Big time.

Because what they showed America once again is that they have no respect for our Constitution, for our revered rule of law, for our governmental structure, or for any of the people who decide to oppose them. The Democorats showed us once again that they are willing to go to any length, to any end, to get their way. They are willing to lie today, tomorrow, and forever to implement their always one-sided and never impartial agenda.  They showed us again that they have no idea how to differentiate right from wrong, and no desire to even pursue the issue. Their side, their agenda, their issues are ALWAYS right, and we are stupid for thinking otherwise.

The statement you see above in quotes from Judge Kavanaugh, after what the Democorats put him through, should make you thankful that he still believes in serving on the bench. We thank him for being willing to endure the process which his confirmation required. We hope the completely unprincipled Democorats did not stir up the mud too deeply for any others who may be asked to follow him to even consider doing that.

We also thank Donald Trump, our president, for selecting a judicial candidate who was able to come through the confirmation process without even a blemish against him. It shows Mr. Trump did his homework. All of Mr. Trump’s victories since taking office, in fact, show precisely that he is always willing to do his homework. And do what’s best for the country he wants to lead.

The stark comparison between Mr. Trump and his predecessor becomes more apparent with each passing day, doesn’t it?

Who are you spending your sympathy on?

 

There are many reasons why citizens vote for a candidate. Blue-collar families often vote for the one who will bring back manufacturing jobs. Military families often vote for the one who will leave no man behind. For me, public safety is a primary consideration. People have a finite amount of sympathy. I’m sure Mother Teresa had more than I do, but even hers was not unlimited. Wisely, she spent hers for the poor. But many people are not wise. They spend their sympathy on illegal immigrants and criminals, leaving none for law-abiding citizens. Take, for instance, the cases of Sarah McKinley and Kathryn Steinle.

 

Sarah McKinley was home with her three-month-old son on New Year’s Eve 2013. She lived in the rural community of Blanchard, Oklahoma, and police response times tended to be long. She was an 18-year-old widow. Her husband had died of cancer a few days earlier.

When she saw two men attempting to break in, McKinley recognized one as a man who had been stalking her since her husband’s funeral. Apparently he was looking for drugs in the cancer victim’s home. She gave her baby a bottle, then retrieved a shotgun and a handgun and barricaded the door. She phoned 911 and asked what to do. She was told she could not shoot unless they came through the door. The 911 dispatcher, though, who was a woman, added, “You do what you have to do to protect your baby.”

It took police 14 minutes to arrive from the time McKinley called 911. Two minutes before they arrived, Justin Shane Martin broke down McKinley’s barricaded front door, holding a 12-inch hunting knife in his gloved hand. She fired the shotgun, killing the Martin. His companion fled. He later turned himself in to police.

Later Sarah explained:

“I knew that I was going to have to choose him or my son, and it wasn’t going to be my son, so I did what I had to do. There’s nothing more dangerous than a mother with a child.”

If we truly want to “save just one life,” we will remember Sarah McKinley and all those like her. We will read the work of John Lott, especially More Guns, Less Crime, which demonstrates that violent crime decreases when more law-abiding citizens are armed, after background checks and suitable training, and does not necessarily decrease with strict gun laws, as in France. We will read the work of Dr. Gary Kleck, especially Point Blank: Guns and Violence in America, which shows that guns are used more often to defend against violent crime than to commit it.

It is bizarre that “progressives” who claim to fear the imposition of a “Nazi” regime by President Trump or others, are the same people who work to disarm the citizenry. They seem utterly unaware of the glaring contradiction.

If we truly want to “save just one life,” we would be guided by logic instead of emotions.

 

Kathryn Steinle

Like many left-leaning cities, San Francisco declared itself a “sanctuary city,” so that illegal immigrants would be reported to Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) only if they commit violent felonies. The supremacy of federal law is a concept that seems to have eluded San Francisco’s officials. In fact, thousands of illegal immigrants have been released from custody in California without immigration officials being notified. In fact, about 39% of the federal prison population is composed of illegal aliens (as of 2013), of whom more than 25,000 have been arrested for homicide.

How well the “sanctuary city” program works was illustrated with striking clarity in the person of José Inés García Zárate (also known as Juan Francisco López-Sánchez), who shot and killed Kathryn Steinle on July 1, 2015. García Zárate was an illegal immigrant and convicted felon who had been deported five times before killing Steinle.

García Zárate was released from jail in San Francisco on April 15, 2015. ICE had filed the detainer request to be notified prior to García Zárate’s release from custody, so that he could be deported again. But San Francisco authorities followed their policy and refused to honor the hold, because García Zárate had not committed a violent felony.

Two months later, García Zárate shot 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle, who died in her father’s arms at a tourist attraction on Pier 14. Steinle had worked for a medical technology company.

Eventually, a San Francisco jury acquitted García Zárate of murder or manslaughter, and found him guilty only of illegal weapons possession. Of course, he will not receive the death penalty, because California no longer has one. Correction: California no longer has a death penalty for people like García Zárate, but it evidently does have one for people like Kathryn Steinle.

Her last words were, “Dad, help me, help me.” But her dad could not help her. It was up to us to help her by keeping the streets as safe as possible. We did not. We used up all our sympathy on those who do not deserve it, leaving none for those who do deserve it. We made a “sanctuary city” that was safe for José Inés García Zárate, but extremely unsafe for Kathryn Michelle Steinle.


In the case of gun control, excessive regulations are more likely
to cost lives than to save them. If you doubt this, just ask Sarah McKinley. How else could one expect a young mother to defend herself and her baby against armed intruders? What could she be expected to do when the police had not yet arrived and a violent man breaks down her door, holding a 12-inch hunting knife in his gloved hand?  If she had not had that shotgun, she would probably be dead, as would her baby.

Here, gun-control activists with their “if it will save just one life” rhetoric actually would have cost two lives. Yet somehow, people like Sarah McKinley just do not register on the “progressive” radar. People like Sarah McKinley and her baby are dumped into Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” or are included in Barack Obama’s bitter clingers who want to hold onto their religion and guns.

After all, how can we expect the self-anointed elite — the graduates of prestigious Ivy League universities — to concern themselves with ignorant rednecks? They are much too elevated for that. When they say “social justice,” they often seem to mean big government controlling virtually every aspect of daily life.  But their version of “social justice” somehow fails to include the very lives of Sarah McKinley and her child.

Ironically, if the advocates of tight gun control had their way, Sarah McKinley and her baby would probably be dead, and if the advocates of tight border control had their way, Kathryn Steinle would probably be alive.

When it comes to illegal immigration, as well as to other policies many “progressives” appear to favor, they never seem to remember their beloved mantra of “if it will save just one life.” If our borders were more secure, and if our immigration laws were more conscientiously enforced, and — most of all — if San Francisco had not declared itself a “sanctuary city,” Kathryn Steinle would still be alive, working at the medical technology company that employed her, interacting with her close-knit family, and charming others with her smile.

From our “Amazing Facts” file…

After a forest fire in Yellowstone Park, a National Geographic photographer joined some forest rangers on their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno’s damage. As they hiked through the burnt forest, the photographer found a scorched bird literally petrified in ashes, perched in statuesque fashion on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat curious at the eerie sight, he gently touched the bird with his boot. When he did, three tiny chicks scurried out from under their dead mother’s wings.

The loving mother, keenly aware of the disaster her little family was in, had led her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but refused to abandon her chicks. When the blaze arrived and the extreme heat scorched her small body, the mother remained steadfast. Because she was willing to die, those under the cover of her wings would live.

The mother bird’s instinct to protect her young at the cost of her own life describes a quality not frequently found among humans. During the shootings in the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater not long ago, some people ran for their lives, leaving their own children behind. But others threw themselves over their family at the cost of their own lives. It reminds us of the Bible verse, “By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 John 3:16).

Jesus did not hesitate to give His life for a world soon to be enveloped in an unquenchable forest fire. Christ wept out the words, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!” (Matthew 23:37). Our Savior stretched out His arms over us to shield us from the penalty of sin. Jesus died in order that we might live.

The picture of a mother hen quietly sitting over her cute brood of little peeping chicks will usually make us smile. But the true picture of Calvary is more like the mama bird dying in the fire at Yellowstone, staying in place with outstretched wings and standing faithful in the face of certain death.

New warnings over impending economic collapse

Impending economic collapse

 

I was skimming the headlines in my newsfeed when I came across something that made me do a doubletake. Not because of what it said, but because of where it was from.
Next crash will be ‘worse than the Great Depression’ according to the New York Post.  There it was, 600 or so words citing economic doomsday experts like Peter Schiff.
The article warned that debt will be what leads to the next crash.  It began by discussing the banker-fueled crash of 2008 when easy credit led to a financial bloodbath from which many families never recovered. Then they cited the astronomical global debt of $247 trillion as the crux of our pending economic disaster.
“We think the major economies are on the cusp of this turning into the worst recession we have seen in 10 years,” said Murray Gunn, head of global research at Elliott Wave International.
 
And in a note, he added: “Should the US economy start to shrink, and our analysis suggests that it will, the high nominal levels of debt will instantly become a very big issue.”
Indeed, preparedness bloggers and current events commentators have been warning of this for years. As store after store closes its doors for good in America and nearly half of the families in the country can’t afford necessities like food and rent, this pre-collapse era has been well-documented.
But student loans, sub-prime mortgages, and easy-to-acquire credit cards just keep on adding insult to injury. Not a day goes by when I don’t receive at least two offers and “pre-approvals” in my mailbox for credit I don’t want or need.
The NY Post cites a lot of the same stats.
US household debt of $13.3 trillion now exceeds the 2008 peak. That’s due in part to mortgage lending, which is hovering near its decade-ago level of $9 trillion-plus.
 
Student loans outstanding have skyrocketed from $611 billion in 2008 to around $1.5 trillion today.
 
Auto loans, at nearly $1.25 trillion, have exceeded the 2008 total, while credit card balances are just as high now as before the Great Recession.
 
Meanwhile, global debt — a result of central bankers flooding economies with cheap money to lift them out of a funk — is now $247 trillion, up from $177 trillion in 2008. That is close to 2 ¹/₂ times the size of the global economy.
As much as I’d like to be optimistic, I don’t see any way for us to overcome debt like that.
What goes up must come down.
It’s a simple law of nature that anything which goes up must eventually come down and so too will our economy. If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I’ve followed the crash in Greece and the collapse of Venezuela closely, documenting what happened when the governments could no longer fund the running of those countries.
In Greece, it all began to crumble when they declared a “bank holiday.” Since then, the crushing poverty was initially well-documented after which it just became old news. No one talked about it anymore.
Venezuela has been in trouble for many years. I remember writing about food rationing years ago and people saying I was being melodramatic when I warned it was a sign of looming collapse. But as it turns out, that was only the beginning of a waking nightmare that has caused many Venezuelans to become refugees, seeking respite from their homeland because there is no food, no water, no electricity, and no opportunity.
I assure you that at some point, this unsecured debt will all come tumbling down on our heads. Even if you, personally, are not in debt, the collapse that is coming will affect us all.
Economic theorists say insurmountable debt is the big kahuna. The huge sums today certainly fed the boom times. But since it must eventually be repaid, the tipping point will come when a wave of defaults by overwhelmed borrowers — potentially squeezed by rising interest rates — leads to a widespread reduction in spending and incomes, economists explain.
There won’t be any help from the central banks. There won’t be anything left to lend. This can has been kicked for at least a decade with things like quantitative easing and the printing of unbacked currency. I can’t even believe we’ve lasted this long, to be honest. Although everyone will want to blame this on the President, it’s been coming ever since the last event, from which we never truly recovered.
“It’s going to be worse than the Great Depression.”  Peter Schiff is oft-quoted in the preparedness and alternative news world. Love him or hate him, what he told the NY Post sounds pretty darned accurate to me.
“We won’t be able to call it a recession, it’s going to be worse than the Great Depression,” said economic commentator Peter Schiff, forecasting a major economic downturn as early as the tail end of the Trump presidency’s first term. 
 
“The US economy is in so much worse shape than it was a decade ago…”
 
“…I think we are going to have a dollar crisis — you think the Turkish lira looks bad now, wait till you see when the dollar is imploding and we have a sovereign debt crisis in the US,” he told The Post. “The US government is going to be given a choice between defaulting on the debt, or else massive runaway inflation.” 
Dark days are coming and Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com believes it will be blamed on the trade war instead of on the sabotage of the Central Bank.
Almost every aspect of the global economic downturn, which started ostensibly in 2007-2008 and is still ongoing to this day, can be traced back to the actions and policies of central banks. The Federal Reserve, for example, used artificially low interest rates and easy money to create a supposedly no-risk loan environment. 
 
This translated into a vast amount of toxic mortgage debt along with a web of derivatives (Mortgage Backed Securities) attached to that debt.
 
The Fed ignored all the signs and all the alternative analyst warnings. Agencies like S&P backed the Fed narrative that all was well as they gave AAA ratings to endless toxic market products. The mainstream media backed the Fed by attacking anyone that argued the notion that the U.S. economy was unstable and ready to falter. 
 
In that era of economics, the truth was effectively hidden from the public by the system through relatively standard means. Today, things have changed slightly…
 
…I believe that the next economic disaster will be more substantial than all the bubbles of the past 100 years combined, and the intent on the part of the banking elites is to obtain complete global centralization of all assets and resources. This time, though, the general public has finally learned to be more suspicious of the central banks and their motives during such events. Because of greater exposure after the 2008 crash, central banks and their related institutions cannot rely merely on the mainstream media or government entities like the Bureau of Labor Statistics to cover for them. They need a smokescreen.
The trade war is so perfect in this regard, I believe that it could not be anything other than planned.
The timing sure is “coincidental,” don’t you think?  What do we do to survive?
I agree with the opinions of the experts above that this collapse will be different and worse than previous financial catastrophes. Of course, their reasons are very accurate but I’d like to add one more to the pot.  We are a nation of consumers. We are not a nation of producers.
I’ve shared this opinion many times, but it bears repeating. So many of the jobs in our current economy are service based. They produce nothing of value. Gone are the factories and the farms. Gone is skilled labor. Gone are the days when we sewed our clothing, grew our food, and built our homes.
People these days go out to work. Maybe they answer a phone all day and provide customer service to people who bought their product (that was actually produced in another country.) Perhaps they sell the products produced elsewhere in a retail environment.
Hardly anyone, though, actually produces anything.
Trades are a dying art. Young people go deeply into debt to study something utterly useless in college and then go out to seek a job with their degree in women’s studies or liberal arts or sociology. No one is being trained to produce.
They just want to make money in a non-productive job so they can consume. And almost everything we consume is produced elsewhere. Our cars. Our food. Our electronics. Our clothing.
That’s the problem in a nutshell.
So if you’re wondering how to survive the coming collapse, it’s simple and difficult all at the same time. Stop consuming. Start producing. Live in a world that is doing everything possible to make you feel like a loser if you don’t consume and be defiant. Grow a garden. Cook from scratch. Repair instead of replacing.
Stay away from things that make you feel lesser because you don’t have a box delivered to your house for $200 a month for clothes you’re only borrowing. Cut up your own vegetables instead of ordering a box of “prepped” food for you to cook at 3 times the price you’d pay at the grocery store. Stop going to the mall for “fun.” Get rid of your debt and don’t look back.  Produce.  Don’t consume.
You will be in a much better place when this collapse happens if you already have the production skills to survive it. Being different now means you’ll be different later. While it might be frowned upon in these good times – and trust me, these are good times in comparison to what lies ahead – in bad times, it could mean the difference between hunger and plenty for your family.
