Chris Hedges: Elites "Have No Credibility Left"
On Monday, WSWS International Editorial Board Chairman David North interviewed Chris Hedges, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author, lecturer and former New York Times correspondent.
Among Hedges’ best-known books are War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning, The Death of the Liberal Class, Empire
of Illusion: the End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, which he co-wrote with
the cartoonist Joe Sacco, and Wages of Rebellion: the Moral Imperative of Revolt.
In an article published
in Truthdig September 17, titled “The Silencing of Dissent,” Hedges referenced the WSWS coverage
of Google’s censorship of left-wing sites and warned about the growth of “blacklisting, censorship and slandering
dissidents as foreign agents for Russia and purveyors of ‘fake news.’”
Hedges wrote that
“the Department of Justice called on RT America and its ‘associates’ - which may mean people like me -
to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act. No doubt, the corporate state knows that most of us will not register
as foreign agents, meaning we will be banished from the airwaves. This, I expect, is the intent.”
interview with Hedges began with a discussion of the significance of the anti-Russia campaign in the media.
COLUMBUS DAY IS A CELEBRATION OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION
October 12 is for celebrating the 525th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of America, for on that day
in 1492, the Great Admiral landed on Guanahani (now known as San Salvador or Watlings) island in the Bahamas.
commemorate this as a true discovery in contrast to all the claims of Vikings, Chinese, Irish, and others who supposedly
came earlier – for once and only after Columbus discovered America, it stayed discovered.
Columbus Day is for most Americans just an excuse for a three-day weekend – which is why it’s a holiday today,
Monday October 9.
What it should be is a commemoration and celebration of Western Civilization – which
is why the Left hates Columbus and his holiday.

Paul Craig Roberts Warns "The World Is Going Down With Trump"
As David Stockman writes, Trump "is up against a Deep State/Dem/Neocon/mainstream
media prosecution" and "has no chance of survival short of an aggressive offensive" against those working to
destroy him. But there is no Trump offensive, "because the man is clueless about what he is doing in the White House
and is being advised by a cacophonous coterie of amateurs and nincompoops. So he has no action plan except to impulsively
reach for his Twitter account."
Our president twitters while
he and Earth itself are pushed toward destruction.

Immigration and Human Nature
F. Roger Devlin, American Renaissance, January 2011
Byron M. Roth, The Perils of Diversity, Washington Summit Publishers, 2010, 577 pp, $29.95.
shift now transforming the demographics of Europe and the United States is likely to leave a more permanent mark on our
civilization than even the two world wars of the last century. The survivors of those conflicts returned to a life that was
poorer than before, but otherwise much the same. This is never the case when one ethnic group displaces another. Barring
wide-spread violence, the effects of large-scale immigration are irreversible. Byron Roth is therefore right to note in
The Perils of Diversity that our current pattern of immigration is therefore “of world historical significance
that will affect future generations for centuries to come.”
American universities that receive government funding
(that is to say, virtually all of them) have “Institutional Review Boards” that approve or block research involving
human subjects. Prof. Roth points out that most faculty members who serve on these boards are openly hostile to research
that might reveal racial differences, often on the grounds that the results might get into the “wrong” hands.
Hate speech laws restrict public debate. Canadian journalist Mark Steyn notes that if an American writer approaches a
publisher with a book criticizing immigration, he will be reminded that it may be illegal to sell it in Canada, and there
goes 10 percent of the North American market. French and German translation rights cannot be sold because the book may run
afoul of European xenophobia legislation, and a British edition may be impossible because libel laws are so lax that anyone
mentioned unfavorably may be able to shut down sales. The result is that such a book may never reach the public, because
it may no longer make economic sense to publish it.
Philanthropic foundations use their wealth and influence to direct
public discussion into narrow channels. They sponsor publications and conferences under color of a disinterested concern
but, as Prof. Roth explains, no one who speaks honestly about the facts of race will be sponsored as a “qualified
expert.” Research on IQ goes unfunded, while millions are available for studies of “racism.” The Ford Foundation,
in particular, has showered money on MALDEF, La Raza, the ACLU, and dozens of other pro-immigration groups.
California and the End of White America
A future America in which both whites and all other ethnic groups see themselves as minorities will be far different from
our traditional majority-white/minority-black society. Since the 1960′s, the deepening ideological decay of the American
melting pot, especially among the journalists and intellectuals who shape our thoughts, has transformed our official self-image
from that of a nation of individuals living in a common culture into that of a nation of groups arrayed against one another
in an ethnic spoils system. Multiculturalism and “diversity” thoroughly dominate our nation’s schools and
politics and public discourse, encouraging minorities to exercise influence through the mobilization of ethnic or racial
grievance. Under this framework, the rise of a similar ethnic-grievance movement among America’s emerging white minority
is likely, perhaps inevitable...
As the first major state to face the political reality of a shrinking white minority,
California has become the laboratory of America’s ethnic future...
Aristotle on Immigration, Diversity, and Democracy
Aristotle is greatly concerned with the preservation of civil peace in the city-state. One of the most common causes
of “faction” and civil war, he says, was the unhappy consequences of unassimilated immigration and the consequent
diversity. Aristotle’s prose is perfectly clear:
Heterogeneity of stocks may lead to faction –
at any rate until they have had time to assimilate. A city cannot be constituted from any chance collection of people, or
in any chance period of time. Most of the cities which have admitted settlers, either at the time of their foundation or
later, have been troubled by faction. For example, the Achaeans joined with settlers from Troezen in founding Sybaris, but
expelled them when their own numbers increased; and this involved their city in a curse. At Thurii the Sybarites quarreled
with the other settlers who had joined them in its colonization; they demanded special privileges, on the ground that they
were the owners of the territory, and were driven out of the colony. At Byzantium the later settlers were detected in a
conspiracy against the original colonists, and were expelled by force; and a similar expulsion befell the exiles from Chios
who were admitted to Antissa by the original colonists. At Zancle, on the other hand, the original colonists were themselves
expelled by the Samians whom they admitted. At Apollonia, on the Black Sea, factional conflict was caused by the introduction
of new settlers; at Syracuse the conferring of civic rights on aliens and mercenaries, at the end of the period of the tyrants,
led to sedition and civil war; and at Amphipolis the original citizens, after admitting Chalcidian colonists, were nearly
all expelled by the colonists they had admitted. (1303A13)
Thus, immigration of different peoples was a common
source of conflict, often leading to civil war and concluding with the ethnic cleansing of either the native peoples or
Here are a few articles on our President, the progressive left, and
deconstructionist media. They serve to explain the hatred directed
toward our President.
The Stepford Americans, by Dave Merrick, Canada Free Press, January 31, 2017
What is going on right now is just downright weird-into-evil. And the
shots currently being
fired at Trump - both the hateful insults as
well as the death threats - are unprecedented in the history of our nation...
CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, etc., etc. have spent the past sixty years
shaping opinion by bending the appearance of
truth before all the
millions of people who now live their lives in the fantasy world that
began as 'entertainment'.
When someone like a fog-busting Trump comes
along, you've got to get the camera off of him. And because you can't
do that now that he is president, you've got to take him out entirely...
Declaration Of Independence, by Dave Merrick, Canada
Free Press, February 22, 2017
liberal news-media and entertainment have for decades been
progressively shaping the attitudes of
their consumer-audiences in
priming them for whoever will buy their mesmerized allegiance. And
now, as a result,
our President is the TARGET of the most dangerous
group of EXTREMISTS on earth: our liberal press,
And through their actions and 'journalism',
who can deny that they have issued what is tantamount to a deadly
fatwa on our president...
Working Americans - the nose-to-the-grindstone, beat-up taxpayers who
been underwriting Obama's father's dreams - finally had had
enough. And they went and did what ABC, NBC, CBS,
CNN, et al. never
dreamed of: They put their foot down and shouted a resounding "HELL, NO!"...
most infuriates big media/press, etc., is that President Trump
is quite obviously not afraid of them...
Deconstruction of America has stopped, by Rolf Yungclas, Canada Free
Press, January 31, 2017
The Left is freaking out because they've lost control in their effort
to make this a nation run by a
Party and not a Constitution
Meanwhile, as the Left protests the existence of a non-Leftist
are showing us that they consider the Constitutional
process optional. As long as their Party gets elected, our
Constitutional system is commendable. But put them out of power in a
major way and the goal becomes shutting down
process and imposing their will on the rest of us...
If immigration can't become,
in effect, open immigration, then all
efforts to crack down on illegal immigration are considered
all immigrants and must be fiercely opposed...
And the ultimatum continues. Everything on President Trump's
must be opposed, so come up with an argument why each item will cause
untold evil, and boycott, protest
and disrupt wherever and whenever possible.
Some say a coup is in progress. I call it the Cold Civil War. The
forces of destruction have been deposed by the election of Donald
Trump and are trying everything short of armed revolt.
The cold coup d'etat had taken place under Obama but was unable to
consolidate its hold by turning the military
into the armed forces of
the Left and by stopping the election of a Republican President for
the third consecutive
time (and the final one, I would say).
Now, facing defeat, all they can do is try to sabotage the
of our republic and multi-party government...
Enter President Donald J. Trump: A comatose nation has been revived
and is undergoing physical therapy in preparation for return to a
normal life. Once we get beyond the boycott
of Trump administration
nominees we can get back to functioning as a great nation.
The Democrat Party-induced
protests will fade, as did the anti-Tea
Party protests, Operation Wall Street, and Black Lives Matter. ISIS
be put on the run, illegal immigration will be brought under
control, and the shackles will be taken off of economic
going to be quite a ride, America, so fasten your seatbelt and
prepare for takeoff!...
The American Church Has Become An Instrument of Globalist Oppression
When Does a Modern Country Become a Third World Country?
a First World country become a Third World country? The better question is, how many third world immigrants can a modern
country take on until they become the newest Third World country? This is why in the 1880’s, at the height of America’s
largest legal immigration period, American law reflected the fact that the country would control the number of immigrants
and the origin of the immigrants would be limited by a quota system. Further, the absence of communicable disease was a
requirement for entry as was the absence of serious criminal behavior in the background of the immigrant as much as could
Today’s churches and their “immigration outreach services” have total disdain for
the welfare of the country, as a whole, as they facilitate law-breaking behavior to the overall detriment of American citizens.
The FBI has stated, for example, that one in ten immigrants from the Middle East could be expected to be radicalized. This
is a euphemism for terrorist potentialities.
Why would any organization, even a church, advocate for the entry of
these people without proper screening? Are we to assume that the Lutheran church is just fine with the events of Orlando,
San Bernardino and 9/11? If so, this is why I want nothing to do with the modern American church.
