From celebrities calling on citizens to take to the streets, to members
of Congress calling for the public harassment of White House officials, to mob justice at restaurants — is the US heading
toward a new kind of Civil War?
Well, some people think the seeds of a new Civil War have already been sown
— and in a recent article, University of Tennessee Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds argued that this new war is
indeed “well underway.”
Reynolds was echoing similar comments from political scientist Thomas
Schaller who wrote in a recent Bloomberg column that America is “at the beginning of a soft civil war,”
and author Tom Ricks who agreed that the country seems to be “lurching” in that direction.
“Wilding” is the term for mobs of violent young
people taking over upscale neighborhoods and wreaking havoc, looting, mugging, and attacking innocent people just for
the fun of it. A “good” neighborhood is no guarantee of safety anymore in Chicago. The breakdown of civil order,
in other words, is well underway in the Windy City. Bit by bit, civilization is slipping away in Chicago.
If you want to know how bad
things have gotten there, the major media outlets are no help. The last thing they want is for people to stay away from
The Mag Mile – the stretch of Michigan Avenue just north of the Chicago River – full of glittering shopping,
towering condo buildings and hotels, and the iconic Water Tower that is Chicago’s rival to Fifth Avenue around Trump
Tower. You have to go to Second City Cop and CWB Chicago, two grassroots websites that are not afraid of alienating big advertisers or of a phone call from City Hall.
The arrival of 90-plus-degree weather over the Memorial Day weekend unleashed the urban
youth. Today, CWB Chicago lists the “highlights” of emergency radio traffic, and it is a horrifying compilation of chaos unleashed
The relentlessly advancing lava from the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii is now
(May 10, 2018} closing in on a geothermal power plant, prompting a frantic scramble to move tens of thousands of gallons
of highly flammable chemicals.
Hawaii Governor David Ige revealed that an emergency task force is removing
large amounts of pentane from the Puna Geothermal Venture plant after a new fissure opened up approximately half a mile
from the facility on Wednesday. It was estimated that an enormous explosion with a blast radius of approximately a mile
(1.6 kilometers) could be unleashed if the fluid ignites.
Don’t you love it when a plan comes together? …Well maybe not, unless
you are an evil capitalist overlord? Soros has been promising “defensively lethal assistance” to the ukronazis
for some time …he got his factotum McCain to include financial provision in the NDAA …and here we go, just
in time for the elections (as TTIC said. ) I’ve been anticipating the NATO-EU “Pivot to Russia” for months:
you don’t put $4.6bn in the pot unless you mean business. And that is just part of the US provision …next comes
money for the Baltic states; new military hardware; and the intermediate range missile development programme.
back at home: both parties are committed to pay 2% GNP to NATO …while people die on trolleys and in ambulances for
want of basic healthcare. Now we know where priorities lie and where the money will be going?
“My family has lost everything. My uncle with stage 4 cancer is in so much pain and stuck in the hospital. However
conditions in the island are far worse than we imagined and my greatest fear has been made reality. The chaos has begun.
The mosquitos have multiplied like the plague. Dead livestock are all over the island including in whatever fresh water
supplies they have.
My family has been robbed and have lost whatever little they had left. The gang members are robbing
people at gun point and the island is in desperation. People are shooting each other at gas stations to get fuel.

3.5 million people on an island, with no food, no drinking water, no electricity, homes are gone.
As much of Florida is left flooded and without power from this weekend's hurricane,
the damage across much of the Caribbean goes well beyond water damage and downed power lines with many describing the devastation
left by Irma as "end-of-the-world times." As one resident of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands told the Washington
Post, "it was beyond rough times, it was end-of-the-world times...everything normal to us has been destroyed."
On St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, "people there are roaming like zombies,"
said Stacey Alvarado, a bar owner who managed to leave for the mainland. Her husband, who is still there, told her Sunday
that residents and tourists are in shock. "They don't know what to do. The island was wiped out. It's like the
walking dead down there." Other islanders sent social media messages pleading for help, decrying looting and a series
of armed burglaries.
"We need help," wrote St. John
blogger Jenn Manes. "We need the United States government to step up. We need military. We need security."
