Democrat prez candidate Andrew Yang’s ‘Emperor has no clothes’ moment

Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang, 44, is an attorney, entrepreneur, and son of Taiwanese immigrants, with a net worth of $1 million.

See “Net worth of 2020 presidential candidates

Yesterday, Andrew Yang said something quite remarkable, akin to the child in the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale who alone said the truth — that the Emperor was not wearing any clothes,

On ABC This Week, Yang said no voters are asking him about the impeachment of President Trump, and that Americans are more worried about child and health care costs than they are about impeachment.

Then Yang said something even more remarkable — that the Democratic Party should ask themselves the “hard questions” of why Trump was elected, and that the primary reason why Trump was elected was the economy, specifically Trump’s “capitalizing” on the loss of manufacturing jobs in Midwest swing states.

Yang said (Newsweek):

“It’s clear the reason why Donald Trump is our president today is that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs that were primarily based in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri and Iowa – the swing states he needed to win.

And what we did to those jobs we are now going to do to the retail jobs, the call center jobs, the fast food jobs and eventually the truck-driving jobs. We have to have a new way forward that works for all Americans independent of your political affiliation. These problems are technological and apply to us all….

And the Democratic Party, unfortunately, is acting like Donald Trump is the cause of all of our problems. He’s a symptom and we need to cure the underlying disease.

Democrats have still not asked themselves the hard questions about why Donald Trump won in 2016. Where, if you look around the country you see 30 percent of stores and malls closing, you see record-high levels of stress and financial insecurity, student loan debt, even suicides and drug overdoses — these are the problems that voters talk to me about when I’m out there every single day.”

Alas, Yang’s identification of his party’s failure will be to no effect because of this simple reason: the Democratic Party had long abandoned the American worker.

What neither Yang nor any of the other Democrat candidates would admit is that contrary to its traditional image and continuing pretense to be the party of the American worker, the Democratic Party actually had become the party of not just the rich, but the super-rich, and of the globalists. In contrast to the stereotype of the Republican Party being the party of the rich, the GOP is now the party of the middle class and the working poor.

Years before Donald Trump and the 2016 election, the transformation of the two parties was already underway. Over the course of Barack Obama’s two terms as president, the American middle class shifted their allegiance to the Republican Party, while the Democrats became the party of the globalist upper class and of the non-working welfare-dependent lower class, neither of whom are “America First” nationalists or patriots.

See my post of Oct. 22, 2019, “Democrats are now the party of the super-rich; Republicans, party of workers”.

Brexit’s sore losers are contemptuous elitists just like the American Left

Do you remember this?

And this?

The above are Democrats in the U.S. screaming in frustration after their candidate Hillary “Deplorables” Clinton, the chosen of the globalists (see “The biggest Wall Street whores among 2016 presidential candidates are…” and “Wall Street owns Clintons; Goldman Sachs biggest donor“), lost to Donald Trump.

The Left in the U.K. are just like the Left in the United States.

On December 12, 2019, U.K. voters delivered a devastating defeat to the globalist Labour Party by voting for PM Boris Johnson’s pro-Brexit Conservative Party. Voters gave Johnson the largest Tory margin since the days of Margaret Thatcher. (The Economist)

And this is how the UK Left reacted to their resounding defeat, with riots, denial, and screaming.

And like the American Left, the contemptuous, elitist U.K. Left also dismiss their opponents, many of them are working class, by calling them stupid, uneducated, ignorant, racist and misogynist.

George Soros banned from 6 countries

Though he is 89 years old, George Soros — through his Open Society Foundations, to which he’s donated more than $32 billion — continues to foment turmoil, unrest and mischief across the world.

In the United States, Soros has/had his hand in the Antifa, the Ferguson race riots, the “caravans” of Central American “migrants,” and the “whistleblower” who ignited the Demonrats’ current efforts to impeach President Trump. In Europe, Soros is behind the flood of “refugees” and “migrants,” Ukraine, “climate change” activist Great Thunberg, and the Brexit chaos.

Some countries, however, have taken steps to expel and ban Soros, his operatives, and his Open Society. In chronological order, the six countries are:

  1. Pakistan
  2. Poland
  3. Turkey
  4. Russia
  5. Hungary
  6. Philippines

While not outright banning him, the Israeli government has said Soros is not welcome there.

The only question is why Soros still has not been banned from the United States.

Since August 2017, there is a “White House petition to declare George Soros a terrorist and seize all of his related organizations’ assets under RICO and NDAA law,” which has been signed by 197,385 people — enough to get a response from the White House. To sign the petition, go here.

Elites’ contempt for America’s white middle class

In early March 2016, three months before the last Republican Party primary elections that sealed Trump’s ascendancy as the party’s presidential nominee, Politico Magazine contributing editor Michael Lind called Trump “the Perfect Populist”—”one with broader appeal to the right and the center than his predecessors in recent American political history—so much so it could put him in the White House”.

Lind was unusual among pundits in predicting Trump’s electoral victory, as according to polling data he did not have even an outside chance of winning. What catapulted Trump to the White House, to the enduring shock and disbelief of the Democratic Party, was his message of what Victor Davis Hanson in his book The Case for Trump identified as “middle-class populism”—a populism of “less government, doubt over overseas military commitments, fears of redistribution and globalization, and distrust of cultural elites.” Their distrust, Hanson maintains, fundamentally was a reaction, not a catalyst, to the elites’ contempt for the white middle class:

[S]corn for the white middle class . . . was widespread among many elites, and it ignited a Trump backlash . . . . The anger that Trump tapped had been a long time in coming. But few politicians knew it firsthand, much less saw it as merited or even useful in the political sense . . . . [Trump] had seen a critical preexisting and vast swath of potential voters in proverbial swing states who were . . . resentful over the disdain shown them by elites, especially the likes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. And they were irate at the winners of globalization who had somehow blamed them for being the global economy’s losers.

In other words, the elites’ contempt for the white middle and working classes predated the 2016 election.

Except in the cases of Obama and Hillary Clinton, the following account of contemptuous elites are from Hanson’s The Case for Trump.

To begin, eight years before the 2016 election, at a fundraising event in San Francisco on April 6, 2008, presidential hopeful Barack Obama condescendingly dismissed working-class voters in old industrial towns decimated by job losses as “bitter” people who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

For her part, at an LGBT fundraiser in Manhattan on September 9, 2016, Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton urged supporters to “stage an intervention” if they had friends who might vote Trump. She then dissed millions of Americans over whom she intended to rule as president. Clinton said, “you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables’. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.” After she lost the election to Trump and the “deplorables,” in a public speech in Mumbai, India on March 10, 2018, Clinton redoubled her contempt for Trump voters. She said, “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward,” thereby implying that the 63 million Americans who had voted for Trump were demoralized, monotonous, listless, and degenerating.

Hillary Clinton’s aides were just as dismissive. In her book Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling, New York Times reporter Amy Chozick described how Clinton’s inner circle looked down on Trump voters as fodder for their amusement: “The Deplorables always got a laugh, over living-room chats in the Hamptons, at dinner parties under the stars on Martha’s Vineyard, over passed hors d’oeuvres in Beverly Hills, and during sunset cocktails in Silicon Valley.”

Elites less prominent than Obama and Clinton similarly were contemptuous of Trump supporters. As examples, on August 12, 2016, FBI agent Peter Strzok texted to his paramour Lisa Page (both are married) that Trump voters stank: “Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support.” Another unidentified FBI employee texted an FBI attorney on the day after the 2016 election that “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS [pieces of sh*t].”

In a tweet on January 7, 2017, Melinda Byerley, founder of the Silicon Valley company Timeshare CMO, wrote: “One thing middle America could do is to realize that no educated person wants to live in a sh**hole with stupid people. Especially violent, racist, and/or misogynistic ones . . . . When corporations think about where to locate call centers, factories, development centers, etc., they also have to deal with the fact that those towns have nothing going for them. No infrastructure, just a few bars and a terrible school system.”

Some members of the media were just as disdainful. In a tweet on August 2018, Politico reporter Marc Caputo mocked the crowd at a Trump rally as toothless hicks: “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.” Although Caputo initialy apologized for and deleted the tweet, he later doubled down, calling Trump supporters “garbage people.”

Another journalist, tech writer and member of the New York Times’s editorial board Sarah Jeong, a graduate of Harvard Law School who is of Korean heritage, tweeted: “Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins?”; “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men”; and “White people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.”

Hillary Clinton wasn’t the only politician who regarded Trump voters with unconcealed contempt. On September 15, 2018, during a speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner in Washington, D.C., former Vice President Joe Biden called the deplorables “virulent” “dregs of society”. He said: “Despite losing in the courts, and in the court of opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made. This time they—not you—have an ally in the White House. This time they have an ally. They’re a small percentage of the American people—virulent people, some of them the dregs of society.” Hanson points out that those “dregs of society” in 2016 numbered 63 million—46% of all Americans who voted.

Nor were Progressives the only elites who held the white middle and working classes in contempt. Republican “never Trumpers” were equally derisive.

In a March 2016 op-ed, National Review’s conservative social critic Kevin Williamson wrote: “The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible . . . . The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles.”

On February 8, 2017, on a panel at the American Enterprise Institute, Bill Kristol, founder of the Weekly Standard, said white, working-class Americans should be replaced by immigrants. Kristol said:

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in? Basically if you are in free society, a capitalist society, after two, three, four generations of hard work, everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled, whatever. Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed, and really want their kids to live better lives than them, and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and, meanwhile, grew up as spoiled kids and so forth.”

Another “never Trumper” conservative who became a self-described “man without a party” after the 2016 election, expressed the same wish. In a June 18, 2018 op-ed, Washington Post columnist Max Boot wrote: “If only we could keep the hard-working Latin American newcomers and deport the contemptible Republican cowards—that would truly enhance America’s greatness.”

For his part, New York Times conservative columnist David Brooks, with the ragged teeth, echoed the same sentiments in a January 29, 2018 op-ed: “These rural places are often 95 percent white . . . . They are often marked by economic stagnation, social isolation, family breakdown and high opioid addiction . . . . It is a blunt fact of life that, these days, immigrants show more of these virtues than the native-born.”

Hanson points out that these Progressive and conservative “never Trump” elites not only are racist, they are hypocrites. Conveniently, the elites excused their crude stereotyping of white, middle America by insisting that racism against whites was not racism. While accusing the middle and working classes they deride for “white privilege,” the elites are blind to their own outsized privileges. In Hanson’s words:

Often the white elite signaled their disgust of the ‘white privilege’ of the disintegrating middle class as a means of exempting their own quite genuine white privilege of insider contacts, professional degrees, wealth, inheritance, and influence.

I am baffled by why the elites hold such virulent hatred and contempt for America’s white middle and working classes who have built this country. It is a phenomenon for psychiatric professionals to explain. Alas, being of the same privileged professional elite class, they probably are infected with the same virus.

Perhaps our readers can hazard some guesses to explain this phenomenon.

George W. Bush whines he may not live long enough to see America recover from Trump

On November 8, 2019, in a Fox News interview with “Never Trumper” Dana Perino, former President George W. Bush, 73, lamented the chaotic political climate in the United States.

As reported by Politico‘s Caitlin Oprysko, Bush said he expected the ship to right itself although he may not live to see that day: “I’m optimistic about the future because as you mentioned democracy is self-healing. This is an unsettled period in our country, but it isn’t the first time we have had unsettled periods. I won’t be around to see my grandkids thrive and prosper, but I am convinced the world they’ll be entering into will be unique and full of all kinds of possibilities.”

Politico reporter Oprysko writes:

The former president was no doubt alluding, at least in part, to the current occupant of the White House, with whom his family has had a running feud. Bush has made no secret of his disdain for Trump’s brash rhetoric, especially after the vitriolic campaign Trump ran against his brother Jeb during the 2016 election cycle.

While he’s strayed from naming Trump specifically and mostly steered clear of politics during the Trump-era, Bush offered a scathing rebuke of Trumpism when his presidency was just months old.

In a 2017 speech, Bush bemoaned that American discourse had been “degraded by casual cruelty,” seen “nationalism distorted into nativism,” and witnessed “the return of isolationist sentiments” in recent years.

Michelle Obama’s hands on laps of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, July 16, 2016

About the pic, see my post “George W. Bush’s love-fest with Michelle ‘Big Mike’ Obama”.

Wayne Dupree, a black conservative Republican and Air Force veteran, observes:

Bush, who kept quiet for 8-long and miserable years while Barack Hussien Obama destroyed this country with his twisted, failed policies, just can’t shut up now that an anti-globalist is in the White House.

There’s nothing that will make globalist G.W. Bush go on the attack like seeing an old fashioned America First President in action. God forbid the president places the needs of his people and his country above lobbyists and defense department contractors.

The failed former president didn’t use Trump’s name during the interview but he didn’t have to. See, Americans are not as dumb as our elected officials think we are.

Bush says he believes that America will “right itself” but he may not live to see it.

And by “right itself” Bush means allowing millions of more illegals into the country, getting hosed on trade, and watching our citizens die in endless Middle East wars.

There’s nothing a globalist hates more than the middle class

Italian government gives 3,700% more aid to ‘migrants’ than its own disabled citizens

Have you wondered why the Left support and ally with radical Islam, including working actively to promote and facilitate the importation of Muslim “refugees” into Europe and the U.S.?

The explanation for that strange and unholy alliance goes beyond the adage,  “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. As pointed out by Dr. Abdessamad Belhaj, a highly regarded scholar of Islam, the Left and Islam share affinities that are structural, not accidental:

  • For the Muslim migrants, the West is a source of economic goodies, including welfare.
  • For Western political elites, Muslim migrants are a means toward political power (via votes); a minimum-wage immigrant workforce with “an impulse” for consumerism, which is the opiate used by the state to control the masses; and globalization, which is why the elites denigrate and oppose nationalism, especially President Trump’s championing of America First and Make America Great Again.

See my posts, “Why the Left encourage the cancer of Muslim migrants” and “UN admits ‘refugees’ are ‘replacement migration’ for Europe and other low-fertility countries”.

Here’s yet another example and illustration of of the unholy alliance of the Left and Islam: Italy’s government gives 3,700% more welfare money to “migrants” than to its own disabled citizens.

Muslim migrants in Italy

Luca Sablone reports for il Giornale.it, January 11, 2019 (Google translation into English here), that each “migrant” is given about 20 Euros (U.S. $22.04) a day — €600 or $661.11 a month — whereas disabled Italian citizens get only 54 cents (€o.54 or $0.60) a day (€16.2o or $18 a month).

Note: By my calculation, “migrants” receive 3,700% more financial aid than disabled Italians.

There are about 3 million disabled people in Italy, 2 million of whom receive disability benefits or a pension. “In some cases, a monthly disability benefit of €1,000 does not allow us to lead a dignified life.”

According to the Jan. 11, 2019 edition of Libero, the government’s draft Budget Law included a Disability and Self-Reliance Fund, which allots €50 million for the year 2020, €200 million for 2021, and €300 million per year beginning 2022. Dividing this figure by Italy’s 3 million “non-ambulatory” disabled, that means the financial aid for every disabled person is 54 Euro-cents per day (€16.2 a month), which is insufficient to pay for even basic needs like transport or clothing.

Although Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, a Euroskeptic and member of the Northern League political party, reduced the welfare given to “migrants” from €35 to €21-22 a day, the gap between the financial aid given to “migrants” and that given to disabled Italians is still “truly absurd”.

Note: On 24 September 2018, Italy’s Council of Ministers approved the “Salvini Decree”, which contained a series of hardline measures, including the abolition of key forms of protection for migrants, making it easier for them to be deported; as well as the suspension of the refugee application process of migrants who are considered “socially dangerous” or who have been convicted of a crime. On September 5, 2019, Matteo Salvini stepped down as Deputy Prime Minister after announcing a motion of no-confidence against Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. Political analysts see Salvini’s motion as a move to force a snap election where Salvini could become the next Prime Minister of Italy. (Wikipedia).

George Soros admits he’s impeded by Trump to turn U.S. socialist

A week ago, on Oct. 26, 2019, 89-year-old billionaire George Soros, who has spent his fortune promoting open borders and leftwing politicians, media, and organizations, said he has been impeded by opponents, including President Trump, in his lifelong quest to transform the United States into socialism, which he calls “open society”.

Soros said that in an interview on Michel Martin’s  All Things Considered on National Public Radio (NPR). Although NPR is funded by U.S. taxpayers, Soros’ Open Society Foundations, to which he had given more than $32 billion, is a financial supporter of NPR — as much as $1.8 million in 2011.

Between the election of President Trump and Britain’s ongoing debate over Brexit, Soros recognizes that populism is on the rise and that his brand of liberal democracy is faltering. He said:

“When I got involved in what I call political philanthropy some 40 years ago, the open society idea was on the ascendant — closed societies were opening up. And now, open societies are on the defensive and dictatorships are on the rise. I have to admit that the tide has turned against me, but I don’t think that I have failed. If you really have principles that you believe in, then you have to fight for them — win or lose.”

Soros said his priority now is fighting President Trump’s reelection — that’s some “promotion of democracy”!. Stopping short of endorsing her, Soros said Sen. Fauxcohontas Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the favored candidate of the Demonrat Party elites, is “the clear-cut person to beat.”

Penny Starr of Breitbart points out that NPR portrays Soros as a benign philanthropist who only wants to “promote democracy” in some 120 countries across the world. That “promotion of democracy” included a $25,100 donation to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Suggesting that any criticism of Soros is motivated by rank anti-Semitism, never mind the fact that Soros had admitted helping Nazis to confiscate property from Jews, NPR states that “Soros, who is Jewish and a survivor of the Nazi occupation of Hungary, has also been a frequent target of conspiracy theorists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis.”

Here is the 1998 60 Minutes interview that YouTube repeatedly took down, in which Soros admitted he had helped Nazis against Jews. Below is my transcription:

Steve Croft (“60 Minutes” interviewer: “My understanding is that you went out with this [Nazi] protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson…and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

Soros, knodding his head in the affirmative: “Yes.”

Croft: “That sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?”

Soros, shaking his head: “No. Not at all, not at all.”

Democrats are now the party of the super-rich; Republicans, party of workers

A new study by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) confirms what some of us already know about the partisan nature of the class-division manifested in the 2016 election:

The Democratic Party is now the party of the very rich, whereas the Republican Party of Donald Trump has become the party of working Americans.

The Sept. 19, 2019 Wall Street Journal article on this, “Democrats and Republicans Aren’t Just Divided. They Live in Different Worlds,” by Aaron Zitner and Dante Chinni, is behind a paywall. The article’s summary:

America’s political polarization is almost complete. Its two main political parties increasingly represent two different economies. And they barely overlap.

Democrats can be found in educated cities and suburbs where professional jobs are plentiful. Republicans live in working-class and rural communities, home to agriculture and basic manufacturing.

The WSJ uses the following indicators as measurements of socio-economic class:

  1. Real GDP (the value of goods and services produced) of a congressional district.
  2. Median household income of a congressional district.
  3. Type of employment.
  4. Education

By those measures, it is clear that in just ten years, from 2008 to 2018, Democratic voters have become not just the rich, but the super-rich, whereas Republican voters are overwhelmingly middle-class and the working poor.

Contrary to the media’s malicious stereotype, even in 2008, the GOP was not the party of the super-rich: The party won no congressional districts with GDPs of more than $62 billion. In contrast, the Democratic Party was already trending toward being a party of the super-rich, having won congressional districts with GDPs of $70 billion to $90 billion or more.

Democrats, the Party of the Rich

In 2008, the Democratic Party was already trending to being a party of the rich. Ten years later, the transformation was complete:

  1. Whereas in 2008, the Democrat Party pulled most of their votes from congressional districts with some of the lowest GDP, by 2018, Democrats now largely represent voters who live in districts with the highest GDP, including GDP of $90 billion or more.
  2. Whereas in 2008, the median household income of Democrat congressional districts was about $52,000, by 2017, that median household income had jumped 17% to about $62,000. That of Republican voters, however, barely changed.
  3. Type of employment:
    1. Democrats represent districts with the biggest clusters of high-paying professional jobs, including the hi-tech hubs around Silicon Valley and Boston:
      • Between 2008 and 2018, Democrats increased their already majority share of jobs in finance and insurance from 61% to 64.3%.
      • Between 2008 and 2018, Democrats increased their already majority share of jobs in digital and professional industries from 63.7% to 71.1%. Nearly three-quarters of digital and professional jobs are now in Democratic districts.
    2. Between 2008 and 2018, Democrats decreased their representation in congressional districts with lower-paying agricultural and mining jobs, from 46.1% to 39.5%, and of low-skill manufacturing jobs from a majority of 53.8% to 43.6%.
  4. Education: Between 2008 and 2017, Democrats increased their share of adults with college degrees from about 27% to about 34.5%.

(B) Republicans, the Party of the Middle Class and Working Poor

Already, in 2008, the GOP was not favored by the super-rich. Ten years later, by 2018, the GOP’s transformation into a party of America’s middle-class and working poor was complete.

  1. Whereas in 2008, the GOP had a modicum of support in congressional districts with GDPs of $60-68 billion, by 2018, the GOP had lost all congressional districts with GDPs above $62 billion. Instead, the vast majority of GOP’s congressional districts had lower GDPs of $22-40 billion.
  2. In 2008, the median household income of Republican congressional districts was about $51,000. After ten years, by 2018, Republican media household income had barely increased, to about $53,000.
  3. Type of employment:
    1. Between 2008 and 2018, Republicans decreased their already minority shares of high-paying jobs in finance and insurance from 39% to 35.7%, and of jobs in digital and professional industries from 36.3% to 28.9%.
    2. In contrast, between 2008 and 2018, the GOP of Donald Trump became the party of honest workers in lower-paying jobs, increasing their share of jobs in agriculture and mining from 53.9% to 60.5%, and in basic manufacturing from 46.2% to 56.4%.
  4. Education: Between 2008 and 2017, Republicans barely increased their share of adults with college degrees from about 25% to 27%.

The WSJ concludes, quoting Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union:

“When folks have less in common with one another, it’s hard to expect that they’re going to see the problem the same way, let alone recognize that a problem exists.”

John Binder of Breitbart explains the connection between the Democratic Party and globalism, and of the geographical coast-vs.-inland divide in the 2016 election:

Democrats represent the overwhelming majority of professional, high-paying industries that are not threatened by free trade and foreign imports — including workers in the financial, insurance, and tech industries.

Oppositely, Republicans increasingly represent workers in the agriculture industry, the mining industry, and low-skilled manufacturing industry — sectors that have been readily gutted because of global free trade and dumping of foreign imports in the American economy.

The Democrats’ voter base of the wealthiest billionaires in the country or professional white-collar employees who work in fields unthreatened by free trade can explain the party’s shift toward a globalist free trade agenda that seeks multilateral trade negotiations and the elimination of all tariffs.

The vast majority of 2020 Democrats running for president have said they would lift the job-creating tariffs that President Donald Trump has placed on foreign steel and aluminum imports.

Meanwhile, Republican voters — the majority of whose jobs are threatened by free trade, as the research notes — have become the most supportive demographic group of tariffs on foreign imports and an economic nationalist agenda that reduces foreign competition in the labor market and American economy.

Of course, regionally, the Democrat base consists nearly exclusively of top income earners and rich executives who live in metropolitan areas and major cities along the coasts.

In the 2016 election, failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won the vast majority of high-income coastal congressional districts in the West Coast and the Northeast.

Trump, who decisively won the election, took home electoral college votes from the heartland of the U.S., winning states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and West Virginia, the very communities that had been devastated by the Washington, DC, free trade apparatus of the last three decades.

Antifa is planning a false-flag killing of leftists to remove President Trump

Yesterday, October 20, 2019, Mike Adams reports for Natural News that Antifa, the domestic terrorists, are planning a false-flag event in which Antifa operatives dressed as Trump supporters will “slaughter” a large number of Antifas. In so doing, Antifa hopes the false-flag event will unleash “nationwide political, civil and financial chaos” that the globalists will use to remove President Trump from power or, alternately, collapse the United States if Trump survives.

Adams says that his analysis “is derived from multiple personal interviews, eyewitness accounts, media sources (cited below) and informed familiarity with the history of the communist playbook from which these events are unfolding.”

Below is Adams’ analysis:

  • A sudden increase in the number of paid Antifa terrorists is now being observed in multiple cities across the United States.
  • The increased recruitment of Antifa mobs coincides with a coordinated media campaign to incite mass violence against Trump supporters and the President himself.
  • Deep state operatives such as James Clapper and John Brennan — who masterminded the criminal plot to undermine democracy and overrule the 2016 election — are now “lawyering up” as Bill Barr’s DOJ actions rapidly approach. This speaks to the desperation and urgency of the deep state to initiate mass chaos within weeks.
  • To achieve their goals of a political coup, the unhinged, lawless Left needs a “spark” event to pull the trigger and flip Antifa masses into an enraged, violent mob that will unleash bloodshed on the streets of America.
  • That “spark” event is likely to consist of a massive staged (theatrical) false flag event where high-level Antifa operatives dress up as patriot Trump supporters and slaughter a large number of Antifa protesters. (Charlottesville 2.0)
  • CNN, as usual, will be tipped off to the upcoming false flag shooting to make sure CNN’s cameras capture the event and all its blood and gore. Trump will be blamed for the mass death, and the event will be exploited by the treasonous fake news media to simultaneously demand the arrest or removal of Trump and the immediate nullification of the United States Constitution and its Second Amendment.
  • As this is taking place, globalist financial operators will wage a sell-off war of U.S. currency and U.S. debt in a desperate effort to crash the U.S. banking system, sacrificing New York banks as unavoidable casualties in the war to eliminate Trump and maintain globalist control over not just the United States, but all countries now facing a populist uprising.

Are We Being “Auto-Enrolled” into the Mark of the Beast?

Revelation 13:14 – 13:18

14  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.

This piece does not aim to provide certainty of conclusion(s), but food for thought.  Over time, as one observes seemingly unrelated or spontaneous developments, a pattern can become discernable.  This writer is “discerning” that we may slowly be being corralled into a “Mark of the Beast” regime – not necessarily by force, as many assume – but through a form of “auto-enrollment” by means of that corralling. Many have opined that the “Mark” will manifest itself in the form of microchips implanted underneath the skin – whether voluntarily using deception, or by force – there’s even a movie about this titled Rumors of Wars. And that may well occur.  But …
