Revolution 2020

Angelo Codevilla

How did we get here—and how will it end?

Understanding what drives the revolution that is destroying the American republic gives insight into how the 2020 election’s results may impact its course. Its practical question—who rules?—is historically familiar. But any revolution’s quarrels and stakes obscure the question: to what end? Our revolution is by the ruling class—a revolution from above. Crushing obstacles to its growing oligarchic rule is the proximate purpose.

But the logic that drives the revolution aims at civilization itself.

What follows describes how far along its path that logic has taken America, and where it might take us in the future depending on the election’s outcome.

‘Unhinged’: Biden compares Trump to Fidel Castro and Nazi Joseph Goebbels, vows to debate him because he’s ‘not very smart’


Joe Biden was slammed as “unhinged” by critics following an interview in which he compared US President Donald Trump to both Fidel Castro and infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels in the space of less than a minute.

Asked by MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle about voters believing Trump’s frequent accusations that Biden will push a socialist agenda as president, the former vice-president said he wasn’t sure if there was anyone voting for Trump who hadn’t already made up their mind.

“But who knows. He’s sort of like Goebbels. You say the lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, repeating it, it becomes common knowledge,” he said, arguing that Trump was using the “socialist” attacks to “scare and distract” voters. He also accused him of “embracing dictators around the world” and then compared him to the late Fidel Castro.

New York AG recommends police CEASE making traffic stops and arresting drivers with open warrants to avoid confrontation


New York Attorney General Letitia James has recommended police disengage from “any type of routine traffic enforcement activity” to avoid potential showdowns with non-compliant drivers as they might end up in violence.

James suggested police take a hands-off approach when patrolling traffic, discouraging officers from stopping drivers for violations that do not involve criminal conduct, in a statement on Friday.

The recommendation came as James’s Special Investigations and Prosecutions Unit (SIPU) released a report on the death of Allan Feliz, who was fatally shot by a police officer after he was pulled over for a suspected seatbelt violation.

While James said that she found “no criminal culpability” in the officer’s conduct in that case, she noted that since such stops “can result in violent interactions,” it’s better to “remove NYPD officers from engaging in routine traffic enforcement altogether.”


Democrat Oregon Governor Kate Brown Declares State of Emergency in Portland for 1st Time over Antifa Counter-Protest

By Penny Starr

Democrat Oregon Governor Kate Brown has declared a state of emergency in Portland for the first time, apparently in response to the anticipated arrival this weekend of right-wing protesters.

Left-wing protesters have staged almost nightly riots in the city for more than three months.

Brown’s order gives authority to the Oregon State Police and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office to control crowds expected on Saturday as the far-right Proud Boys are expected to rally in Portland.

This means that the Portland Police Bureau will follow the lead of those two law enforcement agencies,

Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) reported on the development.

In a press conference announcing the decision, Brown cited a pattern that has repeatedly played out in the city when far right demonstrators hold rallies to provoke counterprotesters and soon devolve into violent street brawls.

State Police Superintendent Travis Hampton said the governor’s decision would lead to a massive influx of state troopers into North Portland, starting Saturday morning.

The governor declined to give figures for how many law enforcement officers from various agencies would be coming into the city, but said she was “confident that law enforcement is adequately resourced to tackle the situation.”

Yet the police at all levels do NOTHING. Not bill barr when it comes to an attempted coup of a president, Hillary & the server or an FBI that is framing 30 year generals for political reasons.

Would anyone like to make a bet, that LEO’s get nasty with the American patriots that are moving to defend their state after standing by and letting the left burn the place to the ground?

Who wants to make that bet? Mark my words, LEO’s will get very violent and arrest people on the right by the thousands, while letting the people on the left burn the place to the ground!

Going to tell you all again… LEO’s are the enemy of Americans and NOTHING but paid thugs for international corporations! They have ALWAYS been that throughout history across the world! They did it for Henry Ford and the mine owners, they will do it for apple, google & bill gates.

This is why the founders provided the second and why LEO’s don’t like armed citizens. Just like a corporation… they don’t like a free market

Ann Coulter On Jake Gardner: Innocent Until Proven Trump Supporter

Ann Coulter

Last weekend, facing death threats and a kangaroo court, and with no means to mount a defense, Gardner killed himself, rather than be killed by the mob waiting for him back in Omaha.

This is the part of the column where I make a clarion call for action. How about civil suits against the monsters in the prosecutor’s office, against the criminal-supporting GoFundMe and the Facebook and Twitter defamation mobs! Maybe a department of justice investigation or FCC action against biased social media companies. Antitrust suits. Boycotts!

I’ve got nothing. The country has gone mad. I always figured the first armed civilian who ever fought back would put an end to the violence exploding all over the country—the violence that police and prosecutors can’t or won’t stop. “We have the guns,” conservatives like to say. In fact, it’s even worse now.

It’s official: You can’t protect yourself. Not even a blameless ex-Marine could defend himself from being choked to death. The D.A. will call in a “special” prosecutor to throw you to the wolves, and they’ll both be praised for railroading an innocent man in the Omaha World Herald, while the “elite” media defame you.

Coming Soon to a U.S. Neighborhood Near You? Regime-Change Foot Soldiers Parading as Social Justice Warriors

Robert Bridge

The first sign of trouble came in 2016, when none other than George Soros began spending a king’s ransom in local judicial elections. As the Daily Signal noted, “[r]adical social justice activists will serve as the top prosecutors for three major Washington, D.C., suburbs—including the two wealthiest counties in the U.S.—after George Soros’ political action committee poured $2.1 million into ordinarily sleepy local races.”

Only a crazed conspiracy theorist, like Newt Gingrich, apparently, would see any connection between Soros supporting radical prosecutors, and his other pet project of supporting ‘social justice’ groups, like Black Lives Matter and Antifa, who occasionally find themselves in need of a sympathetic justice system. And if local courts somehow fail to catch and release the hoodlums, Hollywood has shown a disturbing willingness to write out the bail checks. The only thing the looters and ‘peaceful protesters’ need now is a government mandate that requires masks be worn in public to protect their identities, and for property owners to understand they will be prosecuted for demonstrating their 2nd Amendment rights.

BLM’s Hitlerian Heart

David Cole

Hitler’s idealism is right there in the phrase gutem Blut unserer Art. He sincerely believed that his people’s “blood” was good, and that positive things would come from the domination of Europe by that good blood. Hitler did have “civilizing ideas.” It’s just that his civilizing ideas didn’t involve partnerships with people he saw as inferior. But from his perspective, his goal was to improve Europe. You can argue that his perspective was demented, but still, from his viewpoint, he was indeed an idealist.

BLM lacks any such idealism. It’s a motley crew of “bad” blood, blood that is not only incapable of civilizing, but uninterested in doing so. Hitler was obsessed with the future; BLM doesn’t think beyond the moment. It’s like Mugabe and the white farmers: Even your ability to feed us won’t save you. We want you gone, and if we starve, we starve. That’s BLM in a nutshell, rejecting idealistic trimmings while lacking a road map for survival in the burned-out ruins of the cities it sacks.

Hyperinflation, Fascism and War: How the New World Order May Be Defeated Once More

While the world’s attention is absorbed by tectonic shifts unfolding across America as “a perfect storm of civil war, and military coup threatens to undo both the elections and the very foundations of the republic itself, something very ominous has appeared “off of the radar” of most onlookers. This something is a financial collapse of the trans-Atlantic banks that threatens to unleash chaos upon the world. It is this collapse that underlies the desperate efforts being made by the neo-con drive for total war with Russia, China and other members of the growing Mutlipolar Alliance today.

In recent articles, I have mentioned that the Bank of England-led “solution” to this oncoming financial blowout of the $1.5 quadrillion derivatives bubble is being pushed under the cover of a “Great Global Reset” which is an ugly and desperate effort to use COVID-19 as a cover for the imposition of a new post-covid world order operating system. Since the new “rules” of this new system are very similar to the 1923 Bank of England “solution” to Germany’s economic chaos which eventually required a fascist governance mechanism to impose it onto the masses, I wish to take a deeper look at the causes and effects of Weimar Germany’s completely un-necessary collapse into hyperinflation and chaos during the period of 1919-1923.
